Psychic Protection



Do you walk into a room and immediately sense the mood of the inhabitants?  Do you pick up other people’s emotions and pain? Continually get drained by certain individuals? Live with people who continually bring you down? Shy away from crowds, the mall?

You are most likely an empath. An empath is someone who feels another person’s feelings, emotions and pain. Many of the empaths I have met during the course of my work had no idea that the negative emotions they were feeling weren’t actually theirs.

Some people are the victims of psychic vampirism. Psychic vampirism comes from individuals who dump all their problems on you.  They feel better, but the problem is you feel horrid! Some will actually get energetically charged by your energy, but will drain you.

Psychic attack occurs when another person thinks negative thoughts about you that you pick up on.  You might not be aware that this is even happening.

So what can you do?  This is the realm of psychic protection work. There are many techniques to barrier yourself from the emotions and pain of others.  We will be discussing these techniques on December 10, 2016 at Myztic Isle in La Mesa.  This very important class, “Grounding, Centering and Protection” is open to all people who need to learn to protect themselves, who are empathic, work in the healing or psychic professions or merely are drained from the people closest to them.  You can sign up on my Facebook event, Georgia Vlahos/Ravenhawk.

My very dear friend and mentor, Rev. Dr. Judith Larkin Reno, passed away this weekend after a long illness.  The truth is, she had been battling multiple myeloma for many years. She was at death’s door several times, but rallied each time.  I have never met anyone in my life with such an indomitable, disciplined and courageous spirit.  She astounded everyone she knew, including her doctors.

I met Judith in the mid 90s just after my divorce.  I had also been devastated by a love relationship and was searching for anything that would alleviate my pain.  Somehow, and I think it was our mutual connection to St. Germain, I found Gateway Church and University, her amazing creations.  Gateway was a place to learn alternative spirituality, counseling and ministry. But for those who scoffed at such things back then, Judith was also a PhD psychologist as well as a mystic, and one of the most brilliant people I have ever known.

I took many classes at Gateway.  I learned to read auras, learned counseling techniques, psychic skills, ministry and much much more. These are skills that continued to this day and formed the basis of my healing and counseling practice. But even more than that, I found a dear friend and mentor and our relationship far transcended my time at Gateway.

It was always Judith that I could call when I lost my way, or life handed me some lemons. She had a thousand recipes for lemonade, and she kicked my metaphysical butt many times and got me back on track.  We had a shared interest in Astrology, and we spent many hours discussing our mutual charts and how all that affected what was going on in our lives at the time.

Toward the end of her life, the situation reversed and I has honored to be able to be there for her as she navigated her new journey.  Judith faced Death head on, and was determined to live long enough to get her affairs in order and to ensure that Gateway continued through the very capable hands of Rev. Kimberly Marooney.

Judith’s incredible vision in establishing Gateway was to create a legitimate University where people could learn to be effective ministers and counselors and integrate both modern psychology, mysticism and metaphysics in order to manifest lasting healing. When I joined Gateway, it was a time when metaphysics wasn’t taken very seriously.  Judith was way ahead of her time, as the passage of time itself demonstrated.

I quote Judith to this day in my classes and workshops.  She coined some amazing phrases. My favorite was her term, “God Glasses”.  She would ask us to look at the situation through our “God Glasses” which was really a clever way of saying look at the big picture through our higher self, or, see things as God might see them. I always got an amazing visual in my mind of brass Steam Punk type goggles with rosy pink glass. Her “God Ladder” is a huge help in navigating the often difficult world.

My favorite Judith quote is, “To be truly enlightened you must be able to walk in both worlds”.  Every one of my students has heard it several times. I think that Judith admirably accomplished that in her life.  I am still working on it however.

Judith was perhaps one of the greatest influences in my life.  I was honored to share her when I sent my friends, clients and students to her wonderful Wisdom Circles.  They derived so much healing and knowledge from them. Those who went were forever changed by her Wisdom.

I liked to remind her that her influence was exponential.  Of the ministers and students she trained, most of them went on to do their own great work.  I don’t think she was aware of the incredible influence she had on the world.

I was also honored to participate in her video, “The Living Legacy” and hopefully will be able to get it out on the internet at some point.

One of the most amazing things about Judith was her ability to recognize the greatness in everyone who came through her life.  She wouldn’t hesitate to tell you how accomplished and wonderful you were and how much she loved and admired you. This was the first time in my life I encountered this, and it was very healing for me.  Her ability came, I think, from overcoming the limits of her own ego, getting to a place where she could bolster other people up in a very positive way.  Most people do just the opposite. This was the genius behind her amazing classes, Wisdom Circles and counseling. Judith radiated pure love.

Judith was a very enlightened being who was way ahead of her time.  Her legacy will live on forever in her students, friends and all the people in their respective spheres of influence.

Most of all though, Judith was my friend. She can never be replaced and there will forever be a void in my heart that will never be filled again.

RIP in peace, dear friend. I love you.

As You Reap, So Shall You Sow


Everyone is familiar with the Biblical, “As you sow so shall you reap.”  I’m not really into Biblical quotes, but I think this is a good one.  Always keep in mind that what you put out into the Universe will come back to you. It’s also known as the Law of Karma.

It’s one of the basic laws of manifestation, immortalized in “The Secret”, a book which was madly popular several years ago because it finally let people know that they create their own reality. And that’s all well and good and probably very simplistic, because there are many other possibilities factoring into it.  People have free will….which means that they can do as they like, basically, even if it goes against their own soul’s path.  Many people have been victims of other people’s free will.  Think of all those who perished at the hands of the Nazi’s during the second World War.

And there are of course exceptions to the converse:  As you reap, so shall you sow. But for the most part, abuse is generational.  Many of those who abuse others have themselves been abused.  Alcoholics give birth to children who will become alcoholics.  Racism is learned through the generations and passed down through the generations.  Hatred, bigotry and anger are all generational.

Of course this is doubly true with the concept of epigenetics which postulates that the results of trauma are passed on through generations via the genetic code.  So the trauma of my ancestors being persecuted is carried in my genetic code.

These are interesting concepts to consider when we raise our children and relate to others. Add that to “As you sow, so shall you reap” and we have a whole new reason to behave in a loving and compassionate manner besides religion (which doesn’t seem to be working anyway).

Think about it.

The Naysayers



I was just watching some videos of people debunking psychics, mediums and other people who claim extraordinary skills.  One man had been a professional magician, and he showed how spoon bending was simply a trick, and how cold readers allegedly gather facts about people from prior to the sessions.

I don’t doubt what he said and I’m sure, like any other business, there are a fair amount of charlatans out there.  I see some of them on TV, and I’ve thought that myself.  However, I’m sure that a large number of people are definitely gifted and some are in between.

I do have to say that I feel sorry for those who have to take such a negative stance against anything that exists outside their own reality.  Where would this planet be if someone had not suggested that the world was not flat, or that infinitely small particles such as atoms and germs exist?

I think it’s important not to have a rigid reality.  It’s also important to have a healthy skepticism.  But having an open mind is tantamount to growth as an individual.  I pity those whose minds are so closed that they cannot accept another reality.

My mind is open to all sorts of concepts:  life after death, parallel realities, different spiritualities, other life in the universe, the usefulness of Tarot cards and mediumship, the power of meditation….all of it and those ideas that haven’t even reached my consciousness yet.

This Universe is infinite in possibilities. I’m sure there are a billion ideas that humans haven’t even had an inkling of yet. We tend to think that we what we perceive as reality is actually reality, but actually, it isn’t.

So instead of debunking, how about opening the mind to try and grasp these concepts?  I know my life has been greatly enriched by having an open mind.  And I’ve been able to share that enrichment with others.

Think about it.

Animal Souls



My own answer to that is a resounding “yes”.  I have worked with animals for over 30 years, and I can say that they do.

Animals are certainly self aware.  They exhibit compassion.  They are sentient. They reason. And their spirits live on after death.

Self awareness means the ability to distinguish yourself from others and the environment. Animals certainly exhibit this trait.  They can determine how others will react to them, how they feel about them and how they see them.  Just notice a dog’s reactions when they interact with people who are afraid of them or don’t like dogs.

I have seen outstanding examples of the compassion exhibited by animals.  So many mother animals take in and raise babies of other species.  Service dogs give solace to those in nursing homes or soldiers with PTSD.  Orcas (Killer Whales) don’t usually kill those crazy humans who love to teach them to do silly tricks.  Military dogs give their lives for their handlers.  And so on….

They are sentient in that they sense and feel things intensely.  Often you can see their feelings prominently displayed on their faces.  If you are at all intuitive, you can sense how they feel, and if you are an animal psychic you can actually feel their feelings and hear their thoughts.

I have also noticed with my own dogs that they can reason.  I had a little chihuahua once who was very adept at getting what she wanted.  When her brother was playing with a toy that she wanted, she would get another toy, loudly squeaking it to get his attention.  When he came to see the decoy toy, she would fly over to the toy she wanted while he was distracted. I have also seen videos of Ravens working out complex problems to get a reward.  There are examples all over the animal kingdom.

And finally, I know that animals have souls or spirit because I have seen it.  My deceased pets have come to me often in the dream world.  I have seen their spirits leave their bodies, while they come to say goodbye.  And I have literally seen the spirits of deceased animals in my lifetime.  Sometimes they look exactly as they did when alive, and sometimes just a flash of light.

So yes, I believe that animals have souls. They should be treated as sentient, living and loving beings as we treat humans.  There really isn’t all that much difference between us.

The image above is from Google.  Don’t know who the photographer is.  But you can see so much of what I wrote about in their faces.  There is love, vulnerability, compassion, pride, friendship…and so much more.

High Tech Magic



In this technology age, we tend to think that tech and magic are basically incompatible, since magic works with the natural world and the elements.  This is not necessarily true. I’ve found a few ways to integrate technology with the ancient practice of magic and manifestation.

I’ve used technology for healing.  Often on Facebook, I come across people needing healing, fighting terrible diseases, or animals in distress.  I simply draw the Reiki symbols over their photos with my finger, intending to send Reiki to them.  This isn’t too far from putting a photo of someone needing healing on your Reiki altar.  In fact, it’s much quicker and to the point, as I visualize the symbols and healing travelling instantly through the web to the recipient.  Intent is everything.

I use email to send healing requests that I receive to a group of online distance healers. This is quick and effective.

I also have used tech for manifestation.  When I wanted to get rid of a negative thought, I wrote it down on a piece of paper and put it in a copier on the reducing button.  My negative thought became tiny, and from there I could burn it and get rid of the ashes.

You are only limited by your imagination!  I would love to hear your ideas on high tech magic, so feel free to comment below!
