In a dream long ago, I became keenly aware of the ethereal guides that I have with me in this lifetime. Spirit guides. Ones who many of us cannot see in the physical form in our dimension. Read more
What is Psychic Awareness?
It hasn’t always been a popular topic. The idea of mind-reading, seeing the future or communicating with source energy (god/goddess, spirits, or angels) has fueled witch hunts in the past. So, what’s so special about it? Maybe “somebody” doesn’t want us to use our psychic abilities. Read more
My first crush was a boy who lived across the street from my Nani. In our kindergarten year, he proposed marriage to me on the “good morning” circle, and kissed my hand. That was the first time I recall the sizzle. I had fun with it. My hands and feet would tingle when I touched certain people. In third grade some boys caught on, and enjoyed sitting across from me — gym shoe to gym shoe. I assumed they felt it too. (Please don’t forward this to my dad).
Cuz my Sweet SISTAR used to Roar to me when my heart was broken. She’d crawl in my bunk and growl and roar LOUDLY until we cracked up. Until we almost wet our pants.
I ROAR cuz the wild women roar. It’s how we flush out our anger. It’s how we see the other side of our emotions and transmute the pain into light. It’s why I’m free. It’s why I can make a steak out of 3 peanuts. Cuz I Roar. I Roar Loudly when I need to.
MY ROAR CLEARS. It’s My Medicine. My offering to YOU!
And, I crawl into your bunk, roaring my wild cat roar bringing your strength to the NOW. Roaring your heaviness into the light of laughter.
And, then I sit quietly and take in all the BREATH and Bliss the empty space has to offer.
Why do you Roar?

“Own Your Magic” is our motto here because we believe it’s what it takes to really create a Blissed Life. And, what time can be better than the now to really step into the power of your TRUTH? To be vulnerable, receptive, creative and authentic in your experience.
Today’s 12/12/12 energy has really helped shift us into a deeper understanding of our own purpose. Can you feel it? The whole planet is vibrating at a higher frequency. As we welcome the new moon tomorrow, so do we welcome in Nature’s support in discovering our power.
You are powerful and magical, and this season is here for you to celebrate that. This time of year many of our friends are celebrating Hanukah, getting ready for Christmas, prepping for the solstice and enjoying the restful pace of Mother Nature.
Wherever your life’s path takes you, go there in magic. Know that our ancestors have always celebrated the bounties of the Universe during this time. We’ve always come into receiving mode, enjoying the fruits of the year’s labors and gifting gratitude to those around us. It’s a reflective time, and more-so than years before, the closing of 2012 marks the closing of an era of duality. It is finally time to welcome in our Divine Feminine. Our Collective Intuitive Magic.
We wish you the Blissiest of Holidays this year. We hope that you come to a place that allows the ultimate satisfaction for you! May you have abundance, joy and the most love you can imagine!
Vibrate Where You Want to Be: Get Back to Your Manifestation Vortex
So many of our friends, ourselves included are tired of the hectic holiday hustle – we want something deeper. We want to really enjoy every drop of goodness the season has to offer. So, we’re getting into the vortex, baby!
Are You in the Vortex?
Do you know what it feels like to need something so absolutely, that there’s no doubt you’ll get it? And, it shows up in your life almost instantaneously? Then, it begins to unravel in a way that constantly gives you what you need? Maybe you felt like you didn’t even have time to ask for this “thing.” You simply felt it. You vibrated with it and it was there. Well, my Love, that’s the vortex I’m talking about.
How do You Get into the Vortex?
Are you in it with Love? With your career? With friends?
The Divine Feminine is waking up as we leave the age of Pisces and enter into the long-awaited Age of Aquarius. Both men and women alike are finding a spark inside themselves that can no longer be hidden. And, releasing this spark CAN save the world!
How Can Your Intuition Save the World?
Yes, You Can Save the World!
We are all connected by similar frequencies that communicate with one another. So, imagine sending LOVE vibrationally through the global energetic communication system. If enough of us did that, we would dissolve hatred and despair, right? By investing our energy on love, hatred cannot exist.
Any emotion or vibration only exists to the extent that we give it our attention. Ignoring is a form of attention. But, LOVE wins in the end. It’s been proven over and over on smaller scales around the world.
Love is the answer. But, before we arrive at LOVE, there is something more basic that we must address: INSTINCT. Dig Yours!

Are You Missing A Signal?
What would you rather be doing right now? No, no…. I know it would be cool to chill under a shady tree in Fiji while hotties serve you fresh coconuts. What I’m asking is….do you need to scratch your nose? Do you need to shift in your chair? How do your eyes feel after staring at this computer screen? Are you stuffing down any of these basic instinctual signals???
I admit… I do it myself. Sometimes I’m at the computer for so long that my butt dissolves into my seat and, by the time I stand up–I can’t even feel it. These are the moments I get so crabby that the family naturally knows to stay at least 10 feet from me. It’s as if my denial of my personal instincts helps increase their intuitive power. Or maybe that black swirling smoke cloud around me actually physically pushes them away. I don’t know.
The tiny intuitive clues that we ignore often prevent us from reaching those HALLELUJAH intuitive psychic moments where we completely understand and co-create our path to BLISS. I don’t particularly enjoy when folks think I’m pulling some kind of miracle for being able to see into their life-situations the way I do. It’s not magic in the sense that its actually attainable to an extent by all of us. That is, to the point that you believe you can. I can “sense” and “see” things like cancer in others because I first scratched my nose and took care of my own intuitive needs.
One of My Major Objectives for You is to Prove to You That Your Intuition Can Save The World. Who wouldn’t want to save the world, if they knew it was this easy?
I’m writing this today because I decided that it’s a very bad thing to deny our intuitions. I was just sitting here at the computer feeling very edgy and not knowing why. I went from being grateful for the day to internally cursing this Mexican Jungle couch that I’m sitting on and all the lizards around it. Poor lizards.
What is your body telling you?
I’m a writer. For me, the urge to write creeps up like the feeling you get when you reach the top of the roller coaster. Only imagine you just found out right now that you were already at the top of the roller coaster, naked, after eating the last bite of a too-big hamburger, about to fall– and you knew that vomiting was inevitable. Plus, there’s an attractive stranger next to you with a camera. And your high school gym class is watching from the bleachers.You’re there, and you know that getting this off your chest will feel good when it’s over. But, there’s all this pressure and total body panic. That’s how it feels for me. Most of the time.
So, today, there I was web-researching for junk like airline tickets and housing. And a part of me was pretty ticked off that I wasn’t using that time to write. Then, up came the swirl of heat from the edge of my toenails to the top of my head, the tightness in my stomach, the nausea. And, finally I gave in. I fell. I opened the WordPress Ap and I wrote this because the writer’s instinct is to write.
The release is much better than a colonic. As I’m sure it would be for you and your art. Most of my readers have had colonics. Personally, I’ve only ever had one. If you’ve never had a colonic and want to use my example for your comparison, you can do that. Because, in truth– we are all one.
But even though I’m a kefir-pushing natural health junkie– in honesty, I don’t want you to have to get tubes stuck in you because you held in all of your emotions and urges. So, if you don’t closet those little reminders your body gives you — take a deep breath, scratch the side of your nose or whatever you sense in your gut that you MUST do– you will not need a colonic. Our instincts tell us what we need for survival, and once we truly listen to them, we can really begin to move up in consciousness and forge that connection to deeper knowing.
Follow The Choice that Floats Your Boat the Most
When I was a kid I used to play Fortune Teller. At 10 years old, I organized fun fairs on our block and charged 8-year -olds 25 cents for psychic readings and magic shows. I pinch myself daily to make sure I’m not stuck in some kind of Vanilla Sky replay of the life I always dreamed of — because I got it. I got everything I want in such a magical way. My ability to give people intuitive readings stems directly from my ability to listen to my own instinct. Whatever your dream and destiny is, can only be fulfilled once your human body knows that it is safe. Listen to your instincts and your body will feel safe. Simple as that.
Tap into your intuition by:
- Intend to. Your intention makes the process more REAL and productive
- Slow Down. We generally miss signals because we go too fast
- Breathe. You hear this a lot, but we need air. And, those of us who speed through life often don’t breathe fully and we are weak because of it.
- Check In. Focus on each part of your bod, from head to toe for at least a minute each morning. How do you feel?
- Take Action. Begin to move on those hints your body gives you. You need water? Drink it! Need to sleep? Nighty night!
- Give Thanks. Gratitude is always good for raising your whole vibe. What an easy way to HEAL 🙂
- Share. Say out- loud your intuitive findings and make those connections with how that sleep led you to clear traffic, a delicious kiss and a night on the town — All things your whole self needed
If you are not smiling now, know that you can be. Just give yourself the attention needed to find out what makes you tick.
So, what does this mean for you? What are you ignoring? You wanna manifest that trip to Fiji? I better hear you sneeze out loud next time then. I’m serious. We’re ascending and we’ve got to kick it up a notch!

I pulled this article from the “Gina LaVerde” archives at an old website I used to work for called Mind Petals. It was written in 2007. Wow! Enjoy!
You needn’t be a practicing psychic to let your intuition guide you. We all get “feelings” that come from some unexplainable place inside ourselves and leave hints about the decisions we make. Whether they surface as warnings, luck or advice about the future – our gut instincts are more than just proof of our over-thinking tendencies.
How many times have you wished that you defied the logical choice and went with your “gut?” If the words “I just knew it” cross your lips more than occasionally then, I ask you: what’s stopping you from going with your gut?
Sure, we can’t always prove the truth behind these hunches, so relying solely on instinct gets tough.
But, here’s why you need to pay more attention to those little voices inside you.
Oprah Says So
We’re not huge Oprah fans. But the fact that main stream-media covered a topic that speaks to the very work we do in the alternative health world is quite promising. The March 2007 issue of “O Magazine” ran a fairly comprehensive article about the logic behind using our guts to decide our next moves. Citing the re-discovery of the enteric nervous system (also known as the second brain), in the 1980’s as scientific proof that “thinking” happens in our bellies.
We now know that our brains and guts vibrationally communicate with each other through this enteric nervous system. ( and, in fact, DNA changes as a result of this same type of inner vibrational communication). Your gut sends at least double the information to your brain than your brain sends to your gut. The balance of healthy bacteria and yeast in your digestive system aids in this communication process.
Main-stream media continues to half-cover important health topics like digestive health and intuitive thinking. In fact, a recent headliner about the dangers of sugar even provoked my mother to write me about what she’d seen on the news. Over-use of sugar may be related to poor gut health and therefore a botched line of communication from gut to brain, pathogenic candida overgrowth and brain fog. The truth is that most of my clients are suffering from candida, and have a difficult time understanding their gut feelings. But, it’s not just sugar that is the culprit. I’ve experienced more candida flare up (in myself, family and clients) as a result of imbalanced eating and stress. When the main-stream media tells you that sugar is bad, it inspires a frenzy of guilt-ful eating of sugar, disordered and restrictive eating, and stress.
What I’d like to see is a media who tells you what is really healthy. One who tells you about the fermented foods, good fats and super nutrient dense whole foods (not GMO) that help balance the micro-organisms in your gut and naturally allow for the flow of clearer intuitive thinking.
The trick is that when something on the boob tube catches your eye and feels like it could be right, go do your own research in books and online. Gently experiment with yourself. Maybe you’re not clear on what your gut is saying to you now, but thankfully nature has given us many tools for practice. The very act of trusting your gut allows for clearer messages to come through. And, believe it or not — trusting your gut also vibrationally heals bacteria/yeast imbalance.
Our own familiy’s healing from autism, heavy metal poisons and various infections began with a rigorous Body Ecology Diet which worked rather quickly to heal our physical guts by replenishing necessary healthy bacteria and yeast with fermented foods. And, one of the most valuable lessons I learned was that trusting my gut meant I couldn’t follow that diet forever. We dabbled In the healing powers of raw foods and saw great results for 2 years. We dabbled in super foods, raw meat eating, and some GAPS and Westin A Price Protocol. Then, finally I began studying Chinese Medicine and have come to realize that intuitive eating is the best way to keep balance and full health for our family. I now teach my clients how to honor their gut instincts and keep their physical guts in the best shape possible so that they can truly hear what their bodies are telling them regardless of what some guru or book tells them.
Soon, I even learned that I could gauge my physical health based upon how clear my intuition is. After the gut healing Body Ecology Diet, I became really psychic. But, once that work was done, I would experience brain fog if I overdid “healing foods” like coconut kefir or algaes. Sometimes gut balance for me meant eating bread… The very beast that I was told was the cause of my problems in the first place.
Trusting your gut and knowing yourself is an endless journey. We learn more each day, but it’s important to take action on what we learn if we want to see real changes in our health. It’s easier than you might think.
Try this O Mag. inspired exercise:
Have a seat in a comfy chair, take a deep breath and clear your mind (as much as you can). Now, push firmly on your abdomen. Is it soft and pliable, or does it feel hard and tense? If you are truly relaxed, your gut should show it with flexibility. Now – think of your job, your in-laws, or something that you know stresses you. After briefly concentrating on the stressor – feel your belly. The gut tenses up during stress. Doesn’t it?
Ancient Cultures Believed in Gut Thinking
In the Western world we’ve got our brains and our hearts to help make decisions. We are either logical thinkers because we use our brains to consider all facts. Or, we are emotional saps because we use our hearts to “feel” our way to the answers. Society tends to favor straight logic because we like to see physical results. But, in eastern culture emotions and logic are intertwined in the gut. We think because we feel and both are of equal importance.
Eastern philosophies have been healing people and keeping them well for at least a documented 2000 years. New science continues to prove the valid relationship between organ function that now can be measured and ancient practices like acupuncture and energy meridians that come from China. The cool thing is all of this can be easily adapted and proven in your own life without huge cost or pain.
Try it and see.
Think about how relieving it would be if you didn’t feel compelled to second-guess your intuition. Does thinking like this cause your tummy to relax?
The Power of Thought Can Help You or Haunt You
If you’ve got a sneaking suspicion that your boss isn’t going to like your new proposal, and you don’t address the subject – you may be setting yourself up for failure. Keeping looming thoughts internalized, without changing the physical situation may cause you to foul on the job just because you are focussing on what you don’t want. We can make ourselves fail by thinking that we will. However, if we address the problem we can let go of negative thinking. If you simply go to your boss with an outline and a few questions just to make sure you’re on track with what he/she wants — you may find out that your presumption was silly. But, you’ll save yourself from causing unnecessary stress.
Have you got a major decision to make right now? Feel your gut as you consider your options. It should soften as you come to the choice that is most comfortable for you. Going with the comfortable choice means that you can put all of your positive efforts into succeeding.
Most of us are fully aware that the holistic approach to healing begins in the gut. Vitamins are made in our digestive systems, our immunity and moods are determined there too. In yoga, we breathe into our abdomens, and our bellies are the core of all feelings.
So, it’s not far-fetched that that little notion you had to call your sister might be right on the mark.
The next time you get a hunch about what numbers to play, or how to help a buddy out of a sticky situation – Listen to your gut. Take the time to feel what your gut is telling you, and go with it.
What might happen if you didn’t go with instinct on some important decisions?

I awoke this morning still sweating from my feet stomping through the mud to the rhythm of the rain. My throat dry, for I gave my voice to the healing water. Together, we called her and she nourished us as we danced in her glory. My people felt much relief. There were beads and bells and women singing. The medicine woman who looked over us was held up by the strongest arms in our tribe. She chanted shrill melodies from your heart, and I felt their meaning in mine.
I chanted with her. This was my language too, and each syllable moved me. I looked down at my dirty veiny feet and sunk them deeper into the earth. We stayed dancing until the water dried. The ground pulled me in and I pounded more for that feeling of being connected. I was safe in my fear. Safe in my anger. I gave it to the ground and the ground sprouted for me. The men brought fire and drums. It got hot.
I began to recognize faces. I saw you. You danced like fire under the moon. We loved you so. I thanked the creator for having been reunited with you. How long had it been? I began to remember that we have been here before. I remember the men coming at night and raiding our village. I lost my baby. But this… This was before my baby was taken. When were they coming? Could I stop them now?
I find my girl and I dance with her. She is alive here and we cover our bodies with Earth’s colors and celebrate more. It seems like we never stop celebrating. I smell yellow flowers. I taste red fruit from the tree. There are so many people here and I can feel all of their thoughts.
My muddy bare ankles are shackled to my sister’s. The one with heaven in her voice. We were dragged to a wooden ship where we sat too close and could see the men across from us. But they wouldn’t look. She cries and cries and I tell her to sing. But she can’t. I tell her that she will get her time. I am here to tell her that she will have her time.
My gaze falls into the wooden slats on the ship and I can see another ship, and another ship and another ship. And I remember them shaving my head. I remember hiding. I remember trying to escape. I fall asleep feeling drugged and sore.
And, that’s when I woke up– finally understanding why I’ve been having so much pain in my feet, and why I actually have markings that reflect trying to escape shackles. I’ve often hidden these parts of me… My feet. Not anymore.
