What Does Claircognizance Mean?

Claircognizance Defined

Clair = Clear; Cognizance = Knowing

Claircognizance is another “6th sense”.  I put 6th Sense in quotes, because not every “Clair” can be 6th.  We have many senses available to us.  Claircognizance is just knowing something and not knowing how you know.

Claircognizance in Psychic Readings

This is my favourite sense that I use during readings.  It makes giving psychic readings feel so easy.  I really do not know how I know some of the things I do.

Claircognizance = Clear Knowing

Claircognizance = Clear Knowing

Often clients will say “how did you know that!”, and I reply that “I just know”.  It is very similar to knowing something that we give no thought to.  If someone were to ask you “What is 2 + 2?”, you would reply “4”, with no thought whatsoever.

That is how Claircognizance works.  Someone asks a question, and someone who is claircognizant just knows the answer.

I do not claim to know ALL the answers.  However, I can say that by connecting to the information that is available in the collective consciousness, or by talking to your higher self, or Source energy, the information is often ‘just there’.

Do not confuse this with mind reading though.  I cannot read minds.  I feel energy, but I really cannot usually ‘read your mind’.  You could have 20 ‘thoughts’ or ‘questions’ and I might not pick up on any of those, I may however, pick up on your energy and ‘know’ a lot about you or your situation.  Sometimes there is a little bit of clairvoyance thrown in the mix and I will see pictures to go along with what I am knowing.

In the case of psychic phone readings, I do not even need to see your face or what you look like, claircognizance kicks in and I just know things.  I do not need to see you physically to be able to know what is going on with you.

You have probably experienced claircognizance in your own life; and you may not even know it.  Think of a time when you just had a ‘feeling’ (knowing), that you should not be in a certain place at a certain time.  “I just knew I shouldn’t go to that party”.  That is claircognizance in action in your life.  Learn to trust it.

What is Clairvoyance?

Clairvoyance Defined

Clair = clear; voyance = to see

Clairvoyance is a sixth sense. It is the power to see objects and visions. The visions can be in the past, present or future. The sixth sense is related to the images that are always present that bring messages from other dimensions. These images can be shape, colors, still, animated and remain only for a few seconds or last a longer time. They can be ‘seen’ with eyes open or closed.

Clair = clear; voyance = to see

Clair = clear; voyance = to see



Clairvoyance in Psychic Readings

I often use clairvoyance in my readings.  When I am sitting with someone, either in person, or while doing a phone psychic reading, I sometimes see pictures.  I see them with my eyes open, or if I want to see more clearly, I will often close my eyes and see it in my ‘mind’s eye’.  Closing my eyes takes away the distraction of what is in front of me in my 3D field of vision.

Sometimes I may see a word that looks as if it is going across a marquee.  Other times I may see a room, or a person, or animal, or anything else that may be in your life.

Quite often during mediumship readings, your loved one will show me something.  They often do this so that I can describe the picture I am seeing, and you will know it is them that is coming through.

Other times, I will close my eyes and see a “movie” playing in my head.

I don’t think I ever do any readings that do not have at least some bit of Clairvoyance involved.  I always “see” something.  Those of us with clairvoyance cannot always control it though.  Sometimes I may be using claircognizance, and be asked to describe something I see, and I simply do not ‘see’ it clairvoyantly.  Other times I see things clairvoyantly that I wish I hadn’t, some images you can never get out of your head.

Not everyone understands that Clairvoyance is only a small part of a Psychic Reading.  Clairvoyance on its own is not always helpful.  Seeing pictures or movies is great, but a good psychic will also use other gifts to get information to you as well.





Higher Dimensional Energies DO NOT Want to Tell You What To Do

We all have guides, teachers, angels, ascended masters, and loved ones, (perhaps ancestors we don’t even know) that spend time with us whether we realize it or not. I usually just call them my “peeps”.

Most of you reading this post realize this, at least on some level, or you probably would not have been drawn to my site.

Your peeps DO NOT want to tell you what to do. You need to really understand this, it is important.

We are on earth to have an experience. OUR experience. NOT someone else’s experience. This might sound harsh, but they DO NOT care what you do! They want you to be happy, they want to support you energetically to get what YOU want. NOT what they want for you.

In the case of loved ones who have crossed over, they may have told you what to do when they were here, but they DON’T CARE WHAT YOU DO AS LONG AS YOU ARE HAPPY.

Most messages that come from your peeps will be messages that empower you to be happy and create the life that YOU want. That’s it. They want you to be happy.

Most of the time, if you are talking about your problems you are just making your problems stick even more. Your peeps don’t always want to talk about worry, or guilt or problems.

All of your solutions lie in your vibration, your offering to the Universe. If you offer out crap, you will get back crap. Your peeps want to help you to help yourself. They don’t want to talk about your problems. They want to talk about what you are offering up to the Universe, what you are putting out there, what you are getting back.

Psychic Readings with me are all about solutions, NOT problems. If you need to let go of something in order to raise your vibration, that will be shared with you. If you need to add something (healing, meditation, training in something, etc.), that will be shared with you.

If you ask specific questions, often you will get specific answers. Sometimes you won’t. If it DISEMPOWERS you, or takes your free will and choice out of the equation, you will not get a specific answer. Not from higher dimensional energies, they won’t live your life for you.

Interview With A Psychic

In 2008 I met a couple and did readings for both of them, separately, a few months apart.  Paul asked me to do an interview for him, so I did!

Below is the interview from 2008.  Since the time of this interview, we have become friends but prior to 2008, I did not really know either of them.  I mentored Drea for a few months, (around 2009), and now she is also doing readings and Reiki healing/teaching, as her main line of work.

Here is the INTERVIEW WITH A PSYCHIC (as first published on Paul’s website many years ago).

An Interview With a Psychic

By Paul Piotrowski on Aug 1, 2007 in Spirituality

Just over a year ago, I asked myself the question of “Are psychic’s real?” and “If so, how do they fit into the realm of personal development?”   Naturally, mainstream science and what we’re taught in school tells us that psychics are not real because their abilities have not been scientifically proven yet by mainstream science.  However, if their abilities are not real, then how come some law enforcement agencies in North America use them to solve crimes?  I mean, aren’t police officers some of the most skeptical people out there?  Why do movies continue to show psychic characters and how they fit into the world around us in different ways?  Is it because deep down, we know that it is possible?  Or is it just superstition?

I decided to look into this further, but I wanted first hand experience instead of someone else’s biased opinion so I ordered a few readings online via email.  I asked some questions and got some answers.  Although the answers were very insightful, and the advice very practical, I was still not convinced that there was any psychic phenomena involved in delivering the answers.  There could have been, but the answers also could have been given by anyone who has read my blog and used it to get a profile of who I am etc.  I was looking for more “proof”.

Shortly after, for my wife’s stagette party, her bride of honour hired a psychic to do readings for them as one of the activities during the day.  This is when things got a little weird.  The psychic that they had do their readings was Tamara Hawk.  For my wife’s reading, my wife didn’t have any specific questions so she just got the psychic to give her a general reading.  After telling my wife a few things relating to her, she started telling her some information about me and the kind of things I was struggling with at the time and what would happen.  My wife told me about this the next day and I was rather surprised because she was pretty much bang on in terms of describing the things that were happening in my life, and these were not things that you could guess by being in our house, or by reading my blog or anything like that.  My wife was really impressed, and asked Tamara to leave a brochure.  When I looked at the brochure and saw a picture of Tamara, I instantly knew, intuitively, that she was real.  Don’t ask my why, but I trust my intuition.  I didn’t pursue a reading at that time though, and I’ll admit that I was a bit scared.

A few more months passed by and I had another email reading done with another psychic, and once again the answers were great but not convincing.  I was back to square one, more confused than anything.  Shortly after that I decided to get a reading done with Tamara.  I checked out her website and found out she also does email readings which is what I was looking for.    This time, however, the questions I asked had zero interest in “testing” whether psychics work, but rather I wrote my questions from the point of view of already believing the psychic is real.  I did this because I wanted to make sure that this time I had zero intention of “testing the psychic”.  This is something that Tamara and most psychics will tell you blocks their ability to give a proper reading.  If you’re simply doing a reading to test if the psychic is real then your ego will block everything and you might as well save your money.  I wanted to get my ego completely out of the way on this one.  I sent her some questions and anxiously awaited my answers.  Since these readings take a bit of time, a few days passed, I got busy at work and I forgot all about it.

I don’t remember exactly how many days it took to get my reading back, but I do remember all of a sudden thinking “Oh yeah, I wonder if that reading is done yet.” and checking my email and in that exact moment my reading came in.  Tamara’s reading came at the perfect time, and I remember having a smile on my face because in the reading she said “I hope it arrives just at the rigth time”.  The reading answered the questions I asked, but more then that she gave me some insight into a few things I didn’t specifically ask about.  This is where I was shocked.  She told me that amongst my spirit guides there was talk about a move coming up very soon for me, and she described the circumstances of the move and how the move will provide my family with more comfort especially in terms of space and lifestyle, and that the move will be slightly outside of my comfort zone moving into a new city.  I was excited.  She was bang on with her reading.  We had just gotten an accepted offer on a home we were trying to buy, outside of the city we lived in on a property about 40x the size of our current home (talk about more space!).  The thing is that besides my realtor, my wife, the seller, and I think one other person, nobody even knew about this yet.  I can hear you skeptics thinking she somehow did a lookup on the public property records for real estate, but that’s not possible because we only had a signed accepted offer not a completed sale with title transfer, so there was no public record of us buying the home yet.  I give this example, not to convince any skeptics as obviously this won’t do it for them.  In fact, nothing you read ever will, so if you’re truly interested in knowing the truth you’ll have to do what I did and experiment on your own by getting some readings done personally.  I’m just relaying one of the things in the reading that was bang on in terms of telling me something I didn’t even ask about, that nobody except a very small group of people should even know about.  The rest of the reading was also pretty amazing, but I won’t go into details as that is not the purpose of this article.

This article is about doing an interview with a psychic named Tamara Hawk.  After my reading with her I knew I was dealing with the “real thing” so I started to do more research on psychics.  I read some books, articles and such and even played around with a Tarot deck for fun.  One of the books I was reading titled, “But You Already Knew That”, gave me a totally different perspective on who psychics are.  They don’t all work at the local fair with a crystal ball in front of them and a deck of Tarot cards.  Not all of them choose to do readings, but rather keep their abilities to themselves, while others only do readings for people they trust who won’t judge or ridicule them.  In fact, you could be working with a psychic or a few psychics at work and you wouldn’t even know it.  Heck, Bill Gates could be psychic and just choosing not to tell anyone!  Ok, maybe not.  But anyhow, I now had a lot more questions on my plate and I contacted Tamara to ask her if she would be willing to answer some questions about being psychic that I could post on my blog.  I was really excited when she replied that she would do it so I began working on my first set of questions for her.  Keep in mind that I was not interested in coming up with questions to try to prove/disprove her abilities, because that would be (1) pointless as nothing posted on this blog or any other will ever convince any skeptic, and (2) would be rather insulting and a waste of time for Tamara.  Instead I base all of my questions on the assumption that her abilities are real.  Pretend that you’re sitting in front of her, she has just proven to you in person that her abilities are real, (whatever it would take for you to be convinced), and now you’re all confused and curious how all this works.  That’s how these questions are written.

Ok, now that we’ve got the background out of the way, let’s dive into the first set of questions I sent her.  I hope you find them as enlightening and interesting as I did.

Paul: Tamara, tell us a bit about your history being a psychic.  Have you always been psychic or did the ability develop at a certain point in your life?

Tamara: Well, from what I hear from my family I saw and knew things as a child. I don’t really remember specifics but I do remember knowing things, I just didn’t realize that not everyone knew what I knew. I also remember that I had many friends that I played with that no one else saw.

There are many psychics in my family. My maternal grandmother saw many things, my aunt is psychic like me, my mother sees and knows things but doesn’t acknowledge it all that much, and my sister also sees people and is an awesome animal communicator (her whole life revolves around her animals and always has).

Before I even thought about the possibility of being ‘psychic’ my sister and I would play ‘psychic games’ for fun. I remember doing this all through my school years. We were not exactly rich so we shared a bedroom right up to the time we both left home. We had bunk beds and used to take turns ‘guessing’ what the other was thinking of.

I remember during those years that occasionally ‘someone’ (a spirit) would be around. One particular night I said to my sister “do you see that?” She said “the old man by the closet door with the hat?” I said, “yeah the hat with all the fishing flies” She said “Nope, don’t see him” and I said “me neither”, things like that made us nervous, not scared though, it was common in our family. This happened quite frequently to us but I still never thought of myself as psychic, I wasn’t the only one seeing them after all.

It was so ‘normal’ for my family. I was raised to be totally accepting of souls and visions etc. so I never really thought of myself as being ‘psychic’. In my mind, I just saw what was right there & figured that anyone could see it if only they were open to it.

Paul: How did the realization that you had an “ability” that others didn’t, and that is certainly not accepted by mainstream science yet, affect your life?  Was this something you kept secret?  At what point did you begin to openly express your abilities publicly?

Tamara:  When I was 15 my aunt was living out of town. She came for a visit one day and asked me to do a ‘reading’ for her using psychometry (holding an object and getting impressions). I told her that it was her and my sister that did that, not me!

She insisted that I try it to humor her. She remembered what I saw and did as a child and she knew the things that I took for granted as just being there, were not the norm so I tried it. I saw things and talked for over an hour – got kind of lost in the moment and what I was seeing.

After I was done, she told me that she had just been to see a psychic before coming into town and apparently I told her all the same things that the psychic had – and more.

For the next 10 years I proceeded to practice and freak out my friends in high school and then later the local pub with my ability to hold one of their objects and see things about them. It got to the point in the pub when I was older that I couldn’t walk in without someone coming over and asking me something. After a time, I realized that I didn’t really need to hold anything of theirs. I found that I would start to get visions, or information or whatever you want to call it, the minute that they walked over with the intention of asking me a question. This rather baffled me because I was very used to having the ‘crutch’ of holding an object. I was also concerned that if I let on that I could see things without holding an object that people would start being afraid to talk to me.

Then I started to have spirits come in while I was talking to people. I tried to mostly ignore them for a long time, but occasionally one would come through that would not go away until I mentioned them to the person I was sitting with. By this time, most of the people around me knew what I did so it wasn’t overly disturbing to them when I told them that someone was there who had something they wanted to say.

As for keeping it secret.  There’s still a lot of people that I don’t share it with.  Some of my neighbours know, some don’t.  I don’t mention it to other mom’s at my son’s school much.  I seem to always ‘know’ when I can tell people though.  In my personal sphere I mostly keep what I do to myself unless I get a feeling that the person I am talking to will be receptive to it or if they ask me.  A lot of people are scared of what I do for numerous reasons and I don’t want to put them in that position.  The people who know most about what I do are people that are led to me or who are looking for someone like me.

Paul:  How have your abilities affected your personal relationships with family members, relatives etc?  Were you raised in a family environment which believed in psychic phenomena and/or encouraged it, or was it a subject that wasn’t encouraged?

Tamara:  From my maternal grandmother on down, there are a lot of psychics in my family.  I remember my grandmother teaching me yoga and meditation and teaching me to be able to use visualization to see things.  She read every Edgar Cayce book there was and talked to all of us about it.  I remember my mom used to read us bible stories almost every night.  She would tell us we could do anything we wanted if we only had faith.

I had constant gentle reminders that anything at all was possible.

Paul:  What exact psychic abilities do you have?  Can you “see” the future, read minds, speak with deceased ones, etc?  What is the terminology used to describe your abilities?

Tamara:  I am a medium so I can communicate with spirits from the other side.  I don’t always see them like I would see you sitting in front of me.  I used to see them a lot as a teenager and they scared the heck out of me.  So I asked them to please not just appear in front of me like that.  Now I usually get messages from them in my head like telepathy and I can actually see them better with my eyes closed.  I can ’see’ them quite clearly this way and it saves me from being startled by having someone appear in my line of sight.

I am also clairvoyant (clear seeing – as in seeing things that have or will happen past/present/future), clairaudient (clear hearing – meaning I hear things that others can’t), clairsentient (psychic perception of smell, taste, touch, emotions and physical sensations), psychic.  I’ve heard that all mediums are psychic, but that not all psychics are mediums and this makes a lot of sense to me.

Its like there is this Universal Energy and everyone is affected by it.  You can call it an energy grid, a matrix, whatever name suits you.  Everyone taps into it to some degree (gut feelings, feeling strange in a certain place etc.), even ‘mass hysteria’ – this is everyone feeding off of everyone elses energy.  Its all energy.  The way it feels to me is that when I’m doing a reading, all the information is right there and all I do is access it.  Tap into the energy grid and there it is.

I often say I am talking to “Spirit”.  Spirit to me can be many things.  It can be departed loved ones or ancestors; it can be the ‘higher self’ of the person I am doing the reading for; it can be spirit teachers or guides; or the energy grid.  Spirit is an easy way to define it because the word itself encompasses so much.

As for ’seeing the future’ – I don’t believe that the future is ever set in stone so I don’t ever call myself a ‘fortune teller’, nor do I ever tell people I will ‘tell them their future’.

I have a lot of clients that say “it happened just like you said it would”.  I can see things coming up for people for sure.  The thing is, is that what I see coming up can be stopped.  I talk a lot about this in my writing.  We all have free will and choice in our lives.  We have crossroads in our life all the time where we could go one way or the other.  Sometimes I’ll see something coming up for someone and let them know that if they take road #1 this is where it will lead.  If they like that, then we can leave it at that.  If road #1 is leading somewhere they don’t want to go, options are provided saying — if you take this other road #2 then these different things will present to you.  There is always choice.

Its important that people know this.  A lot of psychics will tell people that this lousy thing is coming up, sorry, your life sucks.  There are always options or other ways of looking at things or changing things.  If I see something coming up for someone that may be uncomfortable, I’ll give them ways to get through it easier, or a lot of the time, ways to avoid it completely.  I think that its really important that people do not give their power away to a psychic.  We are here to help people to get through things, provide gentle guidance and timely advice (or yes sometimes warnings).  We are not here to exert power or control over another person, nor to live their lives for them.

I could go on and on about ‘future’ and things, but we’ll save that for another time.

As for reading minds.  No, I’m not a mind reader.  I can pick up energies for sure.  There’s the “I was just thinking about you” thing, when someone calls you.  This is usually energy, not mind reading.

I don’t have any desire to know what everyone is thinking.  I’m sure we could all do it if we tried hard enough, but that’s not my thing.  I connect with people’s souls (or higher self), not their mind.

Paul:  How long have you been doing readings, and what made you decide to pursue that as a path in life?

Tamara:  I started doing readings when I was about 15.  Through my 20’s I was a ‘career woman’ and didn’t put much focus on doing readings except for fun or if someone asked me.  I had other things to do and it wasn’t my focus (although in hindsight I still always knew certain things).

Here I was, going along in my career, working my way up the corporate ladder, doing really well and something told me this was not what I was supposed to be doing.  I ignored it of course, this is what I’d been working on for 10 years, I was making a name for myself.  Not to mention the money I was making.  After a while, I decided that it would be okay to put myself out there and do readings for more people and make it like a ’side job’.

Then I got sick and had to take about 6 months off work.  Talk about a reality check.  My day job started to suck the life out of me.  I went back to work, for over a year.  Then I was ‘told’ (by spirit) to quit.  Scary thought.  By this time I was listening to my guides and higher self a bit more though.  I decided that if “X” happened, then I would leave the next spring (6 months).  Within about 48 hours “X” happened.  I figured it couldn’t be much clearer than that (this was in the fall of 2003).  In March 2004 I ‘retired’ from my government job at 38.

I still wasn’t sure exactly what I would be doing.  I just knew that I had to take one step at a time and keep moving forward and trust.  The more I listened to ’spirit’, the more things fell into place for me.  One thing led to another, and doors kept opening (once I looked in the direction of the door).  So here I am.

Now, I put a lot of trust into messages I get and I will follow my intuition even if it feels uncomfortable at the time.  I always land on my feet and wind up just where I need to be when I connect with and listen to my higher self.

Thanks Tamara for sharing with us some great insight into your life and I look forward to diving into this further with some more questions soon.  I’m sure my readers will enjoy this article.  In the meantime, if you would like to learn more about Tamara, you can visit her website at www.TamaraHawk.com and if you’d like to book a reading with her over email, MSN Chat, phone or in person you can visit her contact page at http://www.tamarahawk.com/contact/.



Which Path Should I Take?

Sometimes it really does not matter all that much which direction you decide to head in.  No matter what happens through your lifetime, you CANNOT FAIL on your journey here.  We are here to have experiences, to live life to the fullest, to enjoy ourselves, and to love.

In these photos, as much as they all look very different, each of these paths will all take you to the same place.  Every one of them.  The path you go down, and the direction you take will alter your experience for sure.  However, if you want to head up-river and make it to the Bridge (as in these pictures), you will get there no matter which of these paths you take.

You can see clearly from the pictures that the scenery is quite different; some appear easier, some appear prettier, or harder, or muckier, or more boring.

From this vantage point, the choice really is yours.  Which path do you want to follow?  Which would make your life the most interesting to you?  Or the most comfortable if comfort is what you prefer?  The shortest?  The direction is in your hands…

If you need some help deciding which path will give you the experience you want in your life, maybe I can help. Visit this page to see more about Psychic Readings.

Which Path Should I Take?

Which Path Should I Take?



There is Nothing “Wrong” With You

We are going through some interesting times indeed.  There are so many energetic changes going on.  They have been happening for quite a few years now and every time the energy shifts, our lives change.  With every shift in planetary energies, I get new clients contacting me to find out what is wrong with them.  Things feel so different and uncomfortable.

I am here to tell you, that there is nothing wrong with you.  You, along with everyone else here, made a choice to be born into this body, at this time.  The world is Ascending, and we came here to help her with the Ascension process.

This is no easy task sometimes.  You have Ascended into a new Dimension, your DNA has changed and is changing still.  Many of the systems that have been set up by man that are not sustainable are changing, and YOU are a part of that.  There is nothing wrong with you, except that you are thinking that something is wrong with you.

Now I know first hand what it is like to feel as if something is wrong with me.  Being born with the ability to connect with Source Energy in a way that not many people could can make one feel like an outsider.  Especially when those around you think that you are ‘different’, or odd, or strange ~ or worse yet, lying.

If you are reading this, chances are, you ARE different than a lot of the people on the planet right now.  This is a GOOD thing.  You are here to help.  You might not know it, or you might know it and not know how, but just by being open to reading this, you are different.  You have now consciously become a part of the change.

Different is NOT a bad thing.  Especially now.  “Different”, is becoming the new normal.  The more you embrace what you know and feel, and trust that you are right where you need to be, the more people will come into your life that are just like you.  There are so many people on earth that are like me now.  It is exciting.  It makes me less “different”.  I am working with a lot of people who are just now coming into their ‘abilities’, and learning how they are connected to Source, and I am teaching them to listen to their connections, and it is wonderful.

Sometimes though, when you start to listen to Source, you realize just what is not working in your life.  You can have some things happen that feel disturbing when you start to embrace the new energies.  This has happened to me a few times over the past two decades.  I understand how much discomfort it can bring.  Every time though, I have come out the other side with more knowledge, less baggage, and a feeling of having ‘finally made it’.

Last year was no different.  There were astrological influences, and the Chinese “Year of the Snake” (shedding old ‘skins’), and the changes in the frequencies of the planet.  For many of you it was very challenging.  We are coming into a new time this month though and things will start calming down a bit if you just stop worrying that there’s something wrong with you.

You cannot get where you are going, by staying where you are.  That’s it, in a nutshell.  If you have some ‘baggage’, or belief systems, or people in your life that are holding you in the same old pattern, they MUST BE RELEASED before you can move on.  Just as you cannot throw your entire house onto the roof of your car when you move across the country, you cannot take all your old patterns and systems with you when you decide to energetically move somewhere else.

It seems like every time I am ready to take things to a new level, or a different place, I get thrust into illness, or depression, or just a feeling of being lost.  This has happened to me enough times over the years that I can now recognize it for what it is.  It is Ascension.

When you think about what you want to change in your life, the first thing that needs to change is your vibration.  As your vibration raises, anything that is not serving your highest and best good has to go.  Sometimes your vibration changes so much that you feel physically ill, or unable to sleep, or unable to wake up and function normally.  The easiest way through this is to support yourself.  You do not ever support yourself by asking yourself what is wrong with you.

Would it not be easier to say to yourself, “I am changing, this will pass, I release all resistance, the Universe will take care of me, I will be fine”, rather than “What the hell is wrong with me, why can’t I feel better!”

I guarantee that if you focus on the fact that you will indeed get better if you are just patient with the process of releasing what is no longer serving you, the shift will happen that much quicker.

Asking “What is wrong with me?” will just keep you in a vibrational space of creating more things going wrong.

It is not always easy to just go with the flow.  We are so programmed to be like everyone else.  Programmed to be busy, work hard, look good, be everything to everyone, put everyone else first, not be greedy, the list could go on forever.  No wonder we are constantly asking “What is wrong with me?”

You need to take care of YOU.  (this one was hard for me too, but I think I’m getting it more and more all the time).  If you take care of you, then you will be better able to ‘be there’ for those around you.  If you do nothing else for yourself this year, at the very least take “What is wrong with me?”, out of your vocabulary.

We are all in this together.  None of us are alone.  We are all one, Ascending together with this planet.  Please treat yourself how you would treat others.  Support yourself, allow yourself to release things, get rest if that is what you need.

We are in a New Year with new astrological and energetic frequencies.  Allow yourself to gallop forward with this New Year of the Wood Horse if that is what you are feeling now.

I am doing a lot of psychic coaching/mentoring and “Personal Training for the Soul” now, much more than just plain old Psychic Readings.  Helping YOU to get where you need to be rather than just dictating what will be happening in your life.  You are a Creator, YOU create what you want.  A Psychic can help to get you there, but it is no longer necessary to submit and surrender to what you have created so far in your life.  If you aren’t liking it, change it.

If you would like my help to move forward with your plans, hopes and dreams, to learn how to connect to Source for yourself, contact me and I will be happy to help.

Be Careful Who You Listen To

I have come across an awful lot of people lately that are calling themselves “psychic” that simply ARE NOT!

Some are offering “intuitive readings” and charging a heck of a lot of money for them.  Not all of these people are operating from the LIGHT.  The majority that I have come across (some I have met in person, some just online), are not psychics, and they are operating from a place of their EGO.

They have learned to listen to their intuition ~ good for them.  YOU also have an intuition, whether you know it or not.  I could easily teach you how to listen to it.  Heck, you could just decide to start listening to it and voila!  You are now “an intuitive” (everyone is).

This DOES NOT mean that you would be qualified to charge people money.  NOT if you are telling them you are ‘psychic’, and doing it to pad your own ego, rather than because you truly LOVE people.

It takes a LOT MORE than intuition to claim to be “psychic”.  If these people saw HALF what I see it would blow their freaking minds!

“Psychic readings”, do NOT start with “tell me all your problems and your questions, and I will “intuitively” tell you what to do.  THIS IS NOT A REAL READING/HEALING SESSION!!  PERIOD!!

I do not ever claim to know everything.  None of us do.  Our guides, loved ones, etc. do not want to tell us what to do.  Once someone crosses over, they really don’t care what colour you paint your kitchen, or what you do for work for the rest of your life.  It is your life.  LIVE IT!!

If someone starts to dictate your life for you, stop listening.  Stop the “reading”, stop everything.  I see all kinds of things.  Future things, past things, present things, potential things.  WHAT YOU DO WITH THE INFORMATION AND HOW YOU LIVE YOUR OWN LIFE IS UP TO YOU!

Readings are meant to empower you.  They are not meant to live your life for you.  They are not meant to pad the ego of the supposed “reader”.  They are for you, and when you are involved in one you should feel the love.

Not saying my readings are NEVER uncomfortable.  Sometimes confronting something that you haven’t wanted to confront can be difficult.  BUT, I really don’t remember the last time I told someone something that was uncomfortable for them that they didn’t already know (relationship over, job ending etc.).

I don’t get information that is going to screw up your life.  Why would LOVE do that to you?  It makes no sense at all.  Every being that I connect with comes from love ~ I ask for that and I intend that ~ no information that comes from love will ever hurt you (aside from the occasional bruised ego, but that’s easy to manage).

YOU ARE THE CREATOR.  Remember that.  Its important.  Don’t let some “intuitive”, tell you that you have no control over things.

When you get a reading, the person you are sitting with should be able to tell you at least a little bit about you from an energy perspective before asking you more than your name.  Not that your name is important, its just polite.

If you want a decent reading, there most certainly does need to be give and take.  I expect some questions, and I do want to know if what I am saying makes sense to you.  As stated earlier though, I do NOT need your birthdate, whole life story, the names of all your family members, every problem you ever had, etc. in order to help you.  They should be able to TELL YOU what kind of a life you had at home growing up, not the other way around.

Please don’t bother with ego ridden people that just want to prove ~ who knows what they want to prove  ~ most of them just parrot your own words back to you anyway.  They can do a lot of damage to you.  They parrot your words back, you think they are ‘psychic’ and then you begin to listen to everything their HUGE EGO tells you.

Okay, end of rant for now.

Much Love


Here is a great video by Carolyn Myss I came across today… (its part of what got me started….)

Notice when she mentions how many people are coming from a place of POWER, rather than EM-POWERING others.

What, How, When – Tell Me My Future

I would really like to clarify something about the future, “fortune telling”, psychic readings, talking to, or hearing from your guides, loved ones, angels etc.

You are a co-creator. To ask a psychic or clairvoyant what is going to happen in the future, without being willing to hear what you are in the midst of creating is a waste of your time. I, like most other psychics can accurately tell you what you are in the middle of creating. When we see what you are in the midst of creating, we can pretty accurately tell you what will happen in the future.
The problem with this mentality, and some psychic readings, is that when you focus on what the psychic has said is “Your Future”, and you refuse to listen to what a psychic might tell you about what you need to do IN THE PRESENT, you are robbing yourself of actually having a life of your own.

I won’t do this – tell a person that this is “your future” – anymore. I haven’t done this for quite some time. I always start off readings with what you are in the middle of RIGHT NOW. Of course I can accurately see what’s on the horizon, I’m clairvoyant. However, I don’t want to take control of, or try to create your life for you. Neither do your guides or your loved ones on the other side.

For those of us psychics who have managed to keep our ego’s in check, we focus on wanting to help EMPOWER you. Not live your life for you. There is nothing more disempowering than to say “HERE’S YOUR FUTURE, SUCK IT UP”, and then leave you hanging if it’s something you deem to be uncomfortable.

Do I sometimes see things that are in the works, on a roll and seemingly unstoppable? Yes, I do. But if I do, I also get information that will help you to make it through to the other side with the least possible problems or resistance.

Some of my clients are so focused on the HOW or WHAT of things that they miss an awful lot of good messages from their guides. A great example is concerning relationships. I get many questions every month about relationships. When will I meet them, who are they, where will I meet them, how will I meet them? More often than not, when I get these kinds of questions, the first place your guides will go with me is to tell me where you are RIGHT NOW. They may share some of your past relationship information with me, or your upbringing, or where you are now, where you are vibrating with your energy, what you are attracting. But most importantly, what they share with me is WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOURSELF, WITH YOURSELF AND YOUR ENERGY, RIGHT NOW to enable you to find your perfect match.

So many of you don’t want to hear this. You throw your entire life into the hands of a psychic and say “Tell me what will happen”. Your guides, and me, would much rather tell you how you can find your soul mate than telling you that you are going to have another relationship exactly like the last one, or that it will take you 10 years to find them. Wouldn’t you much rather hear how to heal yourself, and change your energy vibration than to put your future in someone else’s hands?

Now I KNOW there’s a lot of people who will say, NO to that question, “tell me what will happen”. And all I can say is, go and find another psychic. This one WILL NOT take control of your life away from you.

All that being said, can I see the future? Yes, as I stated before I am a clairvoyant. Can I see who your mate is, what they look like, do for work, when you will meet them etc.? Yes, a LOT of the time. But often the information comes WITH OTHER INFORMATION about where you are now and what steps you need to take to get yourself ready for this relationship. If you do not take care of what needs to be taken care of with your own stuff, then you could meet your absolute soul mate, not be ready for them, and send them packing. Who knows how long it would take you to either re-connect with them or connect with someone else that you agreed to meet up with while living this life. Or, you could actually change your own future by changing what you are thinking, feeling and doing in your life.

The more healing that you need on a soul level, the more your reading will focus on you, your past, the present, and what you can do to heal yourself. Your guides want you to be able to move forward with a clean slate, and the only way to do that is to know where you are at and what you need to let go of.

I have used ‘significant other’ relationships as an example in this blog post, but truly the message is the same for all ‘issues’ I get in psychic readings. Career, family/friend relationships, money, everything. YOU are co-creating your reality every moment of every day whether you realize it or not. Sometimes we need to create from the most basic space … where we are now.

Prophecies and Religious Views

I’ve been thinking of writing a blog post for a while about fear and religion and how it fits in with what I do.  Those of you who have been clients for a long time, know the difference between a Fortune Teller and a Psychic and Medium and what I do.  When I connect with your energy, I can usually see where you have been, where you are and where you are headed.  I tell you what direction you are headed in and I assist you to make your own choices based on the path you are on.  You are either happy with the path and continue on, or you are not happy with it and make adjustments to change things.  It is so very rare when I see something for someone that seems like it cannot be adjusted.

I often have discussions with people about this.  Or maybe I should say, I often have people tell me that what I do is an “evil” thing that must be messages from Satan.  When I had my computer fixed in the fall, the fellow that fixed it deduced what I did based on the things that were on my computer.  He shared a scripture with me that included phraseology that said “our loved ones do not prophesize and they do not know what will happen in our future, if you get these messages then it is coming from Satan”.  I put this in quotes, but I am sure I haven’t quoted the scripture exactly, this is just what I got out of what he said.

I thought about what he said for a moment, and I agree with him except the part about coming from Satan.  I guess I’d never given it a lot of thought, but when loved ones come in to a reading to speak to you, they don’t tell you what is going to happen to you, they don’t come across as fortune tellers or try to tell you what to do.  For the most part they come to say hi and let you know that they are okay.  Your guides do the same thing ~ they guide you, they don’t tell you what you must do.  Your own intuition works this way too.  Ever have a feeling you shouldn’t go to a certain place, or take a certain route home, and then later found out that there was an accident on the road you avoided.  You weren’t told “you are going to be in an accident”, you were told, “take a different road”.  That is how a reading with me works.  You get signs and guideposts and an idea of where you are headed, what the road might look like and a ballpark idea of how long it might take you to get there ~ what you do with the information is up to you.

I just got an the following email last Friday:

From: Brad Daley [mailto:gcanuck2@gmail.com]
Sent: Friday, January 20, 2012 10:41 AM
To: tamaraha@telus.net
Subject: Witchcraft 

Deu 18:10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

Deu 18:11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.

Deu 18:12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

You are bringing your followers under a curse. Expect judgement.

Wow.  Believe it or not, I get this a lot.   There is a TON of fear in this email and I think it’s a shame.  I can pretty much say for certain that I don’t do “witchcraft”.  I do however work with energy.  Working with energy is more science and quantum physics than witchcraft.  Not that I have an opinion on witchcraft either way ~ I just don’t know much about it, and I do know that energetically speaking ‘what comes around goes around’ so I leave it up to you to decide for yourself what this means.

I am kind of getting off topic as far as my first sentence above was written, but I guess one of the (many) points I want to make is that a lot of what is written in religious scripture is written in a way to disempower people.   Just as a psychic that is inexperienced or not working with the light may disempower you, so may certain religious words.  There is as much in the religious scriptures about positive, uplifting prophecy and people speaking and listening to God, as there is about negative “prophets”.

If you ask certain highly religious people they will tell you that the bible was written by God.  When you ask, “did God take human form and pick up a quill and ink, and pen it himself”, they say, “well, no, he channeled it through his prophets”.  Then they will continue on to tell you that prophecy is negative (see above email).  Only my opinion, but this seems pretty contradictory to me.   We can all work with Divine Love and Light, or we can chose to work with the darker or more negative energies that are out there.
