Listening to your intuition does not need to be painful.

Dealing with Psychic Children

Baby in B&W by Brandi JasmineMost psychic adults were once psychic children. And most of us didn’t have good role models growing up, so it’s hard to know how to react to a psychic child.

It can be quite distressing and disruptive to the family if a sensitive child is seeing ghosts or sensing psychic trouble spots. Don’t get fussed yourself about the experience. It’s a normal everyday life experience for many people. Treat it as such. If you don’t get freaked out, it’s much less likely the child will react in kind. Don’t be over-impressed either. This is a normal human experience, it is best to treat it as such.

I’ve seen many parents over-inflate the ego of a sensitive child, leading to social disasters later on. It can also lead to a lot of pressure being placed on a child. I don’t remember who told the story, but one of the “big name” psychics on the Coast to Coast show told a story of being dragged from one funeral after another. She took it well, but some children might resent being put on display like that.

All the standard psychic protection steps that apply with adults also apply to children. You just have to reach them at their own level. One of the best methods I have heard was to get a spray bottle, put a sticker on it with “Magic Ghost Juice” on it, and fill it with distilled water, some glitter, maybe a drop or two of food coloring, and a few drops of essential oil (lavender is usually a good pick). If you really want to go all out, drop in a few rose quartz crystals. Then spray it around the room with a flourish and say something like “By this spray, I make all spirits go away!”. Give the bottle to the child and let them spray at will.

If the spirit or energy in a place is particularly heavy, you might want to do your own more serious “Ghost Clearing“. Out of sight and hearing of your child, of course.

Dealing with Curses

SpiroSun Digital Illustration by Brandi JasmineI’m often asked “Do you believe in curses?” I believe in psychic attacks and a curse is just a ritualized psychic attack. The thing is, often times “curses” are nothing more than a ritualized threat, and they have no real psychic power behind them. It’s the fear of the victim that gives them power in the end.

The subject of curses often comes up in the context of fraudulent psychic readings. A client visits a psychic and is told that there is a curse on their love life, health or finances. They are offered a fee to remove this “curse” (and the fee can be in the thousands of dollars). If they don’t choose to pay for the “removal” they may be threatened, subtly or overtly, that things will get worse. A curse on top of a curse. This kind of thing is fraud, in most areas it is against the law, and it has no power that you don’t give it.

Sometimes people actually are the victims of deliberate or accidental psychic attack, and this can act in the manner of a curse. The same psychic protection remedies that I recommend for daily “psychic health” work well for dealing with curses. Uncording, Grounding, White Light, and Love Bombing  (bless those that curse you) are the most effective.  I would also add small bowls of salt around your home or property, scatter bay leaves through the house. Certain crystals can help (no clear crystals, white quartz, hematite, and rose quartz are best). Anything that boosts and clears your energy, like neo-selentite orgonite, or plasterite can help. But the primary way to deal with a curse is a positive attitude, and a good sense of humor. “Curses” feed on fear, so do everything you can to starve them of fear. Light a white candle, and remind yourself that you are safe and loved. Pray, meditate, or watch a funny movie until the fear passes.

Tools: Plasterite

You can make your own plasterite, and I will be adding a tutorial to this page, but for now, I recommend you search “platerite” for many online tutorials. I find I like the energy of plasterite better, myself.

My plasterite pieces are hand painted, designed and intended to invoke specific energies. They can be purchased on my art site at I welcome custom commissions).



Grounding is the simplest and most overlooked psychic exercise. It involves re-connecting to the earth or the ground, so excess energy can be diffused. The psychic grounding process is nearly identical to the electrical grounding process.

If you are able to get outside, simply bend down (remember to bend your knees) and touch bare earth. Occasionally you will feel an actual discharge of energy or a feeling of release. If you wish, you can imagine or visualize a cord of energy traveling from the centre of your body to the centre of the earth. This can also work if you cannot get outside.

One of the main symptoms of being ungrounded is feeling “scattered”. You may also feel anxiety, and in extreme cases, electrical sensations in the arms or torso. If you feel such sensations, immediately dip your hands and feet in cold water. If you find you suffer from being ungrounded a lot you may be a hyper-sensitive. It is a good idea for hyper-sensitives to avoid alcohol, tobacco, drugs and vegetarian diets. A small amount of meat and large amounts of legumes are good for grounding. If you feel you are ungrounded, avoid clear quartz crystals: wear onyx or hematite instead.

Keep in mind: it may take weeks of consistent grounding before you begin to feel better, especially if you are particularly sensitive. Any psychic work you do, any emotional trauma will make you feel ungrounded again. This practice is something you must make part of your lifestyle. There is no “quick fix”.

White Light Exercise

There are a number of variations of this exercise, each more or less tailored to a particular belief system or to your elemental affinity. The simplest version is to bring up the image of a blazing white light and surround your body with it, up to arm’s length around you. You can “shower” yourself in it, or “cocoon” yourself, and it is best to practice with it on a daily basis so that you can bring it to mind whenever you feel anxious or threatened.

Some may find this exercise to be overly energizing. Blue light works equally well, and I have found that golden sparkles in the image, or a “champagne” color works better. Experiment until you find the color that works best for you.

There are potential side-effects from over-reliance on the white light or “barrier” methods of psychic protection. These techniques are good to practice, but they can function as barriers in other unintended ways. It is best to set the intention that only negative, hostile or predatory intentions will be blocked, while accepting healing, helpful, friendly and love-based energies to enter. You may find this balance takes some practice, but the effort will be a worthwhile one. Some people will always need this protection, and we all need it at times, but a strong sense of boundaries, good health, and good self-esteem are even more powerful tools to keep the bad stuff out and keep attracting the good stuff!


Cording is a form of psychic bond that binds two people together emotionally. Most cases of cording are accidental. Some are natural, and even helpful on occasion (when they happen with love and mutual consent). Most commonly, however, they are a symptom of a power struggle that can manifest as a dysfunctional or abusive relationship.

Clairvoyants can actually see these cords, and depending on their appearance, can tell two people a great deal about the relationship. You don’t need to be clairvoyant to release cords. Go into a meditative state, and see if you can sense any cords or attachments. I sort of imagine them as bungee cords. Even if you don’t exactly feel or sense any,imagine that there is a string of energy connecting to you. When you are ready, send a pulse of loving energy through the cord, then release or unhook yourself from it, and let it go. Sometimes you will feel a “snapping” sensation. Affirm that you are ready to release the cord(s), and that all energy coming from others should be returned to them, with love, and for the greater good of all concerned.

You do not need to specify a given individual to uncord from, though you can, if you have someone in mind. Sometimes it is better not to specify, because the person who you want to uncord from isn’t the one who is actually causing a problem.
Do not “cut” cords. Gently release or unhook them in your mind instead. I have found cutting is harsh, can lead to energy leaks, and it isn’t necessary.
I uncord several times a day, but my energy body is very “sticky”. I pick up cords all the time. I do recommend every empath or intuitive does it twice daily, at the very least. You may notice that you feel a lot more peaceful and relaxed, if you do it on a regular basis.

Don’t be afraid that you will lose a true love or friendship by uncording. It doesn’t work that way. However, it does tend to encourage negative people out of your life. It is important to keep in mind that you cannot harm someone by releasing a cord – nor does it mean that you must end the relationship. You can only cause harm if you attempt to uncord others without their permission.

Fretful parents who have a child involved in a corded relationship have on occasion approached me for help in “uncording” their child. I give them the same advice that I believe most skeptical non-believers would, “Keep your nose out of it until you are asked for help!”

If you intervene without permission from at least one side, it will come back to haunt you. I recall one mother who did not listen to this advice. Her daughter is no longer speaking to her, and she’s become the object of harassment from her daughter’s former lover. I believe all she managed to do was move the cords from her daughter to herself. The bottom line is she violated a cardinal karmic law, she attempted to enforce her will over two others. She forgot that cords cannot form without consent, and they cannot be dissolved without consent. She ended up doing the very thing she despised in others. That’s not only hypocritical, it is plain wrong, regardless of one’s motives – and it’s dangerous.

If you can see a strong cord, but cannot tell your loved one about it in psychic terms, express your concern in more traditional ways. Tell them you are concerned that the other person is overwhelming or controlling them. Ask if you can pray for them. Visualization is a form of prayer. If they grant you permission to pray, ask for Divine blessing before you proceed (according to your faith), and affirm that what you do be in accordance with Divine Will or is to be implemented “…in the higher good of all concerned.”

Love Bombing

This is the simplest, safest, and most effective response to a deliberate or accidental psychic attack, especially when you don’t know where it is coming from. Meditate, relax, and focus your attention around your body. See if you sense any cords or attachments and mentally unhook them, sending them lovingly back to their source of origin. Send along pink, gold, or white light with the most positive, loving feelings that you can bring to mind. Think of people and things that raise a loving feeling inside, and when you feel you have enough energy, push that loving energy in the direction of those who wish you harm. Meditate on the loving feelings until you feel there is a “click” or a feeling of closure. I believe Love Bombing is what is really meant by the challenge to “love thy enemies” in the Bible. It has never failed to have an immediately positive effect, and sometimes the results can be quite remarkable. In some cases you may find former enemies turning into friends, in others, a persistent challenger simply backs off and disappears. On two occasions where I did this, someone I thought was a friend suddenly turned on me, then disappeared from my life. I immediately realized we were both much better off. The best part about this meditation is it almost always works – even when you don’t know who is behind the attack! And there is no “karmic payback”. Some ritual methods, such as binding or taking revenge, can come back to you with unwanted and extremely unpleasant effects.

Plexus for better health, and clearer intuition?

A few years ago, my good friend Christine was diagnosed with MS. As we watched her decline in health, we began to fear it would not be long before we would lose her. I’d call her and her medications would make her so drowsy she couldn’t finish the call. Then she started taking Plexus. Now she is off most (I think maybe now all) her medications, and while she still has some challenges, she’s healthier and more energetic than me, and she’s lost weight as well. I decided I had to start taking Plexus too. I could only afford a month’s supply, but in that month I saw my sugar levels drop, and I decided as soon as I could, I’d sign up as an Ambassador myself.

So I’m two weeks into being an Ambassador, and I love the pink drink. It’s too soon to say what impact it has, but I definitely notice a difference if I forget to take it. I have already noticed I’m not craving pop as much.

I suspect that there might be supplementary benefits for empaths and intuitives with taking Plexus, though so far, I have to acknowledge I have absolutely no evidence to back that up. I only have the many exciting testimonials I have read for people who say that taking Plexus has reduced stress and anxiety levels. That’s a big problem for us. Frankly I don’t know an empath or intuitive who does not have that challenge (they may be out there, but I wager they are few and far between). Many empaths and intuitives struggle with weight, especially around the middle (3rd Chakra). Plexus also has a specially formulated combination of vitamins, minerals, herbs and amino acids to help support healthy nerve cells and nervous system. It may reduce symptoms from nerve discomfort (This does not apply to nerve discomfort from an underlying disease such as diabetes, autoimmune disorder, or other applicable disease).

Plexus also offers an outstanding business opportunity. Many of you are stay at home moms and dads (or would like to be), and you may struggle with the realities of the material world (I can relate!). I’m adding Plexus to my portfolio of small businesses, and encourage you to check out this opportunity or to order products at I’m available via email to answer any questions you may have.  If you would like to talk via Skype or over the phone, include your Skype ID and/or phone number and the best time of day to reach you and I will be happy to call (evenings only).

Studies Link Social Anxiety To Empathetic Ability, High IQs, & Sentinel Intelligence

By Steven Bancarz| A few years ago, a series of studies came out in an attempt to sort of ‘debunk’ people who practice spirituality.  The study found that people who have a spiritual understanding of life tend to be more susceptible to mental health problems, addictions, and anxiety disorders.

My take: 

It is interesting to see how the exact same information can lead people to stunningly different conclusions. Sometimes as an empath and intuitive, I feel we live in an alternate universe from the completely left-brain majority on this planet. We’re completely out of balance, but studies and articles like this give me hope that the pendulum is swinging back into saner territory.

Yes, astrological friends I know I re-launched during a Mercury Retrograde. Take that! (laugh). I just felt it was time. I wasn’t going to wait any longer. And a “relaunch” can work during this kind of period.

The print version is expanded, has new information and exercises, and contains the same tried and tested techniques for calming over-active psychic abilities.

The e-book remains available, and complimentary e-book copies are available for members of the media, bloggers, and active social media enthusiasts who are willing to write reviews (on your own social media pages, and for use here on the LWYPG site only – I’m not able to provide review copies for Amazon reviews, as this might violate their review policy there).
