My battery ran out in my analogue alarm clock and I did not want to buy a new battery. I wanted an analogue alarm clock that ran on solar cells.
Solar has been everywhere in my life lately but especially driving every day by our local high school whose parking lot was now being covered with solar panels. Ingenious. It provides shade for the cars and power for the school!
So I looked for solar-powered alarm clocks and guess what, there are very few and almost all digital, none that were available for sale that were analogue. I could not buy one!
Then, bizarrely enough, the rechargeable batteries on my digital recorder ran out and, you guessed it, now I wanted a solar-powered digital recorder. I didn't even bother to see if those existed, I doubt it.
It became clear that tons of electronics can run on solar cells (and I know many already do, just not general items), and that this would make a great and, I believe, much-needed business.
Can someone start this business please?
And let me know when you're selling solar-powered electronics--especially a solar-powered analogue alarm clock--and I will buy and also spread the word.
Once in a while I get clients for a psychic reading sessions who have a painful situation they want changed immediately; it's that intolerable.
But when I identify all the components of that situation, including what needs to be done, they go back to repeating their story.
They haven't heard a thing I've said.
They are not receptive.
They are not ready to have the situation change.
They are not ready to receive the peace they are seeking.
The moral of the story -- if you really want a situation to change, you have to be willing to hear, you have to be willing to receive the solution.
This will make your life better. You have to be willing to have your life be better.
If your'e not receptive, all the advice and help from all around you won't make a difference -- until you are ready to receive.
Be willing to receive your highest good.
In psychic reading sessions I see many clients who aren't thrilled with their jobs and are looking for something new that is satisfying. Each person in a session is different and I recommend different approaches. One approach is to take the Johnson O'Connor aptitude test.
It goes over a number of days during which you're tested for all sorts of things, including physical dexterity and musical ability.
From my perspective as a psychic I would not say this answers everything, but it's definitely a good tool. More than anything, on the inner energy level, it signals you are ready for something new and something true for work in your life.

This is a wonderful description of how the divine interacts with our physical being.
We all struggle at times with the best path to take in life. Generally we think there is a "right" one. We worry we might not figure out the right one for us.
Sometimes we worry that there is some overarching "right" way to live, or do things and we're anxious that we don't know what it is.
The easiest way to know the right path for you is to see if you love it.
Does your heart expand? Do you feel excited, enthusiastic? Are you filled with energy?
If so, that's the right path for you at this time.
Our paths are very individual, so it's a good idea not to worry you're not doing it the same as everybody else, or at the same pace, or the same thing. As long as your heart sings, you're on the right path for you.
I see many artists of all types for psychic readings. Many of them are struggling financially. They say they just don't do the money thing well.
In our culture anyone who has challenges with money is looked down on and mostly considered a loser.
What I have found through sessions with my clients is that artists simply do not have knowledge, know-how about money. It is not natural to them. They have to learn, have to educate themselves about how to think about money and how to handle money.
It's not that there is something wrong with the artist. It's not that they are not good at money. Most of the time it's not that they have a "poverty consciousness," it's just that they simply are ignorant; they don't know how. No one has taught them. And society, apparently, in general, does not have the idea to teach them how to think about and handle money.
The irony of this is that the artist has talent in his own way, as we all do. Now, we never ask the business person or the scientist or the medical doctor (people using the left side of the brain, earth oriented, and therefore automatically better suited to handle money), to do any art and when they can't produce, we label them as losers. Why don't we?
Yet the artist gets labeled.
To all artists out there: there is nothing wrong with you in the money department. You just have to educate yourself about money, how to think about it, how to handle it, what to do with it, etc. I know it's not easy, not natural, but it can be done. It's like learning any other skill. It's hard to begin with, but you get better at it as you learn more and practice more.
We all have times in our life when things feel stale, aren't working any longer, but we have no idea what to do next. We may try to make changes, look into different possibilities, and come up with nothing.
At this point it's easy to start wondering what's wrong with us, how come we can't figure it out, and so on.
Yet, in every person's life there is a time when things are in a sort of holding pattern, where the air is still, nothing is moving, we're adrift, without rudder, without direction.
This time is a time of transition. We're moving from one phase of our life to another. Between those two phases is a sort of nowhere land -- or it's how it can feel to us.
However, what's really happening is things are being prepared on the inner levels.
At this time, the inner being is orchestrating people, events, places to bring together the new phase. It takes time. Everyone and everything has to be in position.
Meanwhile, for us, what's there to do?
The main thing not to do is blame ourselves, expect a quick something, force anything to happen that does not feel genuinely appropriate.
The thing to do is be patient, do exactly what's before us in the best possible way with the best attitude we can muster.
The most important thing to do is pay attention. Notice anything new, any feeling, idea, thought, unusual development and give it consideration. It may hold a clue to what we need to learn, change, understand, that will grow us into the next phase.
While the inner self is preparing the next phase on the inner levels, on the outer levels we are called to strengthen our spiritual qualities and learn whatever there is to learn as a way to embody the energy that's coming. In other words we're transforming through the vehicle of whatever is present in our normal, everyday life. This is why it's so important to pay attention to what's exactly in front of us.
It's a hard time. We don't know what's going on. We don't know the new path. We don't know where we're going. But it's of vital importance that we prevail with a good attitude. The good attitude is the means through which the new can emerge faster and with a higher energy.
Patience, fortitude, trust, faith, hope, love -- hold on to these and soon there will be signs of a new direction, a the beginning of the new phase and a new you operating on a new level of consciousness with bigger opportunities and more satisfaction and fulfillment.
