Every week on The Night Shift I pull an oracle card and give a brief reading to all my listeners. I have briefly explained what oracle cards are but on this weeks show I am going to go into more detail. As a psychic these cards are a tool that I use to get information for my client. I also teach workshops on how people can use these cards to get their own intuitive information. There are a multitude of decks available and unlike Tarot cards where a certain knowledge is necessary anyone can select a deck that appeals to them and get useful information the first time around. Just about all decks come with a guide book that will instruct the user how to clean and cleanse the deck. Different spreads, which are arrangements of the selection for cards, that will assist you in getting the answers you are looking for are also included.
I am often asked “Which is the best deck for me?” I feel that there is no definite deck that is right or wrong. At the new age store I give readings, The Mystical Moon in Ft Myers, the owner makes it a point to have demos available of all her decks so a customer can go in and really get a feel of the images and how the particular deck relates to them. They can then base their decision on this. Check out a new age store in your neighborhood where that may be an option. If something like this is not an option you can go to a website like Amazon and search oracle cards (it will help if you have a certain topic such as animals to limit the choices) read the descriptions and trust that you will be drawn to the best deck for you.
The oracle decks I have cover a range of topics from angels, to fairies, to goddesses and the list goes on and on. When I am doing a reading I intuitively select the decks I feel will best serve the client I am reading. Each week for my radio show I ask for a sign of what deck to use. Let me give you an example of how I selected this evening’s deck.
On my walk today I saw butterflies everywhere. All different colors and types, large and small. I knew this was a sign for me so I started considering what this may mean. After the fifth one showed up it dawned on me. I am supposed to pull a card from the Butterfly Oracle for Life Changes deck by Doreen Virtue this evening. The box cover is pictured here. Since I believe butterflies signify many messages for us from our own transformation to a deceased love one reaching out I felt this was a spot on hit for the deck I will use this evening. I will be pulling a card for all of you from this deck and then do individual readings throughout the hour. Join me Tuesday, August 23 at 7:00 PM Eastern and if you can’t make it listen to the replay on iHeart radio link listed below.

A few years ago my youngest daughter faced a devastating disease. Her diagnosis was dire and each day she literally fought for her life. Being a strong believer in the work of Louise Hay and her book Heal Your Life, I pulled out all the stops in keeping her room as full of positive reinforcements as I could. Her sisters and I created affirmation posters for her that said ” I am healed in all directions of time and space.” We kept in mind that when you are creating an affirmation you always do it in the present tense and make a statement of fact. Even though it may not be your reality at the present moment you get to the feeling place that it is. The belief being that this positive energy will attract the outcome that you are looking for. We also posted pictures of her doing the things she loved and some of the places she had traveled to. One obstacle I encountered in all this was some of the doctors that insisted on coming in and being full of worse case scenarios. One such doctor literally made me cringe each time he came into the room. One day we had gotten some really good news. The medications were working and my daughter was improving. Dr. Negative came into the room and said “This is good news but..” I stopped him right there. I said there will be no “buts” today. With that I asked to talk to him outside the room. I explained that I felt his negative comments adversely impacted my daughter’s healing progress. If he insisted on his information being delivered “realistically” I asked that he step out of the room and deliver it to me or my husband. I was proud of myself for stepping into my power and speaking my truth. I almost felt the room release a sigh of relief knowing it could continue to assist us with working on her healing.
What brought all this to mind was a Facebook post of one of my friends in a similar situation. Her husband was in ICU showing significant progress and a doctor who felt he had to be “realistic” gave some of his less than positive comments. My friend’s husband immediately felt deflated and began to be concerned. All the positive information he had been given that day was washed away by this doctor who showed lack of compassion in how he delivered his information.
I think there are a few take aways from all this. First of all in any health challenge situation you are in charge of your well being. Or you family members if need be. They can express their feelings to the doctor and have those feelings respected. When you or someone you know is in a healing situation remember the importance of positive vibrations and how this can be as effective as medicine in treating what ails you. Create affirmations and when you are sending prayers to these people always remember to visualize them perfectly healthy, whole and complete. Many of our health facilities are starting to realize the importance of the mind, body, spirit connection. You are your best advocate and remember if any health care provider is not aware of keeping things positive feel free to remind him or her..Negativity is Not Welcome Here!
On Tuesday, August 16th at 7:00 PM Eastern time I will discuss affirmation creation and the power of positive prayer on The Night Shift. I also will be doing mini readings with questions from the chat room

The Dalai Lama says that one of the key ingredients to a happy life is to visit a place you have never been to before once a year. This got me thinking. When was the last time I stepped out of my comfort zone? Really tried something different? Went somewhere I had never been before. I realized that as I am getting older I am stepping back a bit and knew without a doubt this was not a good thing. Now I probably am not going to jump out of a plane anytime soon but there are things I have been putting on the back burner waiting for the right time.
In 2002 I published a children’s book entitled A Year of Me. The August chapter goes like this:
August is the month
to see what you like to do
There are many things to try
that might be fun for you.
Like fishing for a fish
or wishing on a star.
You could ride on a pony
or travel in a car.
You can play games with your friends
or play all by yourself
With blocks, or dolls, or trucks
paint a picture of an elf.
You can read a book
walk a dog
jump into the sea.
Bake a cake
build a fort
even climb a tree.
There is no end
to all the things
that you can do
“I know I can
______________________ (this is where you fill in the blank)
and see it I like it too.
Let’s fill in this blank together and do something new and this week on The Night Shift, Tuesday 8/2 at 7:00 PM we are going to talk about taking chances and discovering new things. With the new moon energy it is the perfect time!
I also am going to give away a copy of A Year of Me to one lucky listener! Of course there will be mini readings too!
