Sylvia Browne’s new book, Psychic, is an engaging autobiography. It tells stories of her life starting from birth to the present. It is fascinating and a quick, entertaining read.  She talks about her experiences with angels, spirit guides, ghosts, and being a psychic medium, as well as an insider’s view of her life.  Continue reading to see what I have to say about it but I encourage you to read the book for yourself and come to your own conclusions. This is just my interpretation.

I was not surprised to learn that she has been around people who abused her. Many of the prominent psychics and healers of her generation were, such as Louise Hay. When you’re around people who are not nurturing and are frightening instead, it’s a natural thing to start forging connections with the Other Side. Some people end up stuck halfway through the journey of transformation with schizophrenia or other mental disorders. Others somehow manage to push through to the Other Side and become psychics and healers.

As a psychic medium myself I find some discrepencies between my experiences and Sylvia’s. And I’m the type of person who is hypersensitive to incongruencies. So while the book is great as a book to read, I dont know that it accurately represents the whole psychic experience. There has always been something about Sylvia’s and my energy that is not compatible.

My personal sense of her, and this is through my own filters, is that a lot of what she experiences is ego based. In my creative world nothing is absolute, and yet in Sylvia’s world the Other Side is exactly 3 feet away from us. I think a lot of how she perceives things is filtered through her experiences of being abused and out of control and also going to Catholic school. She seems to need to have things in black and white. And she never once says this is her interpretation, she just says this is how it is, period. That really bothers me. It is no surprise that she has started her own religion.

She also says, repeatedly, that psychics can’t read for themselves. That’s simply incorrect. I think there is a whole new generation of psychics who can. I’m one of them.

The other thing that I think may have been true when people were first tuning into angels and writing about them in the 1990s, but isn’t any more, is that angels don’t have free will of their own. I think that’s the way people sensed them because that’s as attuned to the angels as they could be. It’s my sense that the angels have been working very hard with our subconscious minds to raise our levels of awareness so that we can see them for more than just robotic messengers and helpers. Sylvia’s interpretation of the angels is the more robotic, hierarchical one. She says that the different hierarchies of angels have specific wing colors. Maybe. But again, to me that’s limiting things. And that’s not MY sense of them.

Sylvia was a ground breaker in her day. She absolutely paved the way for all of the rest of us to get closer to mainstream. From looking at YouTube videos it looks like she has made some grave mistakes such as giving misinformation on national TV as the absolute truth, and yet she is still hugely popular. I respect her for her ability to turn her gifts into a business empire.

I understand that people at certain places in their spiritual evolution need a lot of rules and absolutes. But then they should be given permission to move beyond them. I’m all about people having direct experiences of their own and knowing that what they experience is right, even if it’s different. I am my Quaker great-great-great grandfather’s granddaughter, in that respect.

Here’s the thing about the Other Side…well, EVERYTHING. The universe is in a constant state of creation. You can’t tell me that the angels and spirits guides and everything else aren’t in on the creative process and evolving themselves. I am, first and foremost, a creative person, tapped into the creative flow all the time. And I will tell you, it doesn’t stay static. The problem is that people, depending on their level of openness, “download” information from the Other Side at a much slower speed than the one it – the Other Side – is at. By the time our human minds process the information received things have already changed. But people get enthralled with their own perceptions and want to keep things exactly as they are.

And there are a millions of abused people in the world who are desperately trying to have some control over things and want things to stay the same. The violations suffered cause the abused to be much more open to the Other Side because of shredded boundaries. Put those two together and you have someone who receives a comforting piece of information they may not even fully understand and then they hold onto it like a security blanket forever.

I feel inspired to give Sylvia a message from the angels through me. “There is a shield of anger in your energy field that needs to be addressed and removed. It has been protecting you for a long time, Sylvia, but it also preventing you from evolving and seeing your guides clearly. The process to use will be presented to you but you won’t like it. In the end it will be a simple thing, relatively painless. And you will wonder why you waited so long.”

And my guides tell me to offer Sylvia some healing sessions. Ha ha…I bet she gets a lot of offers like that from unknown, financially struggling healers such as myself. But I am doing the leading edge work now, opening new doors of perception. I hope I never stop expecting things to be different tomorrow, in ANY dimension, than they are today. And, as always, I know that when I offer healing it means that there is some common issue that I share with the healee that will be healed as well. In this case, Sylvia and I both have the angry shield.

May the angels, masters, deities, spirit guides, fairies, elementals, and helpful humans come to us both and show us the way to transform it. And I’m certain that this applies to whoever is reading this, as well.


All you have to do is intend to receive the attunement and you will. I’ve been saying this for months now to the people who accepted my invitation for archangel attunements by e-mailing me. I’ve said elsewhere that I don’t really do anything, that it is the angels and other parts of your consciousness who do the attunements. It has seemed helpful for people to have someone to ask for it to be done, however, so I have taken the e-mails.

Now the time has come for you to accept that you can be attuned to the angels just be wanting to be. From there you can learn to communicate and form relationships with the angels in many different ways. Yes, the attunement is still a part of the process, but it isn’t necessarily an instantaneous experience. In fact, it’s better if it isn’t. The attunement is just a strengthening, an upgrading, of a connection that is already in place. If you are reading this, it has already been done.

I have recently started re-reading a book I’ve had in my library since the early 1990’s. I was amazed at what an influence it had on me. Here I’ve been talking about angel attunements and self-attunements and there is an entire chapter on just that in this book. It’s available for very little on Amazon (as low as a penny US plus S&H for used copies). Click on the link below to see more.

Commune With the Angels: A Heavenly Handbook

by Jayne Howard Feldman

I think it is a very valuable book even though it has been around since early on in the recent era of interest in angels. There is a guided meditation included in each chapter. While Doreen Virtue strikes me as kind of the “Rachel Ray” of angel communication, Jayne Feldman is the “Julia Child”. Below is the table of contents which demonstrates how practical the book is.

Want to know what Archangel Michael is like, and how you can tell when he’s hanging around? Think of a concert you’ve been to where your blood gets pumping and you feel invicible afterwards. That could be anything from Led Zeppelin to Handel’s Messiah. If you’re a woman, you’ll want to marry him, or at least be his groupie. If you’re a man, you’ll want to be him and go out and conquer the world.

Archangel Michael is the chief warrior of the archangels. He loves to get rid of negativity. He’s the original ghost buster. He is connected to the parts of you that have to do with the basics needs of life. He knows how to get the flow going energetically in the 1st chakra, which is the energy center of those needs. And when he does it can be kind of … inspiring. If he’s around you are likely to have a hot flash no matter whether you’re a man or woman.

Michael can work in any area of your life to remove negativity because it all starts down in that 1st chakra and builds from there. He gets it at the root. How that plays out for you is often a lot more complicated. If you spend more time focusing on what’s going on in your head than your physical reality, it’s going to take a while for the effects of Michael’s clearing to get into your mental processes.

The colors blue and deep blue-violet are often associated with Michael and I can verify that intuitively. The easiest way to connect with Michael and also do a quick negativity clearing (which includes feelings of anxiety and depression) is to imagine yourself surrounded by a vibrant blue-violet flame that is as big as you are.

The more often you do this exercise, the more attuned to him you will become. Like learning how to drive a car or read, soon you will make the connection without having to do it consciously. He’ll just be there. That’s how it is for me. I know that some of what I’ve written here has come from Michael himself, although I don’t experience it as “channeling” per se. I can switch my inner vision and have a sense of him right here with me, however, and listen to him in my mind as though it is a regular conversation.

Someone asked me today how Michael can be in communication with so many people at once. Angels aren’t human. They are not restricted by the same boundaries of time and space. Angels are pure energy, like the sun. The sun shines on and effects everything on earth. The same with angels.

Although there will be some similarities overall that tells you that you’re connected to Michael, the energy comes through our own unique filters. That’s why my version of Michael is different than anyone else’s, but with some shared characteristics. This is a way in which working with angels is just like human interaction. You and I could go to a party and talk to the same person but, because of our different personalities, we could come away from the conversation with an entirely different view of the same person. Some things about the person might be stand out and be instantly recognizable to everybody, but even what we notice about them physically is likely to be different.

Elementally Michael is both fire and earth to me. He is grounding and action-oriented, cuts to the chase, “gets ‘er done” while being incredibly fiery, passionate and sensual at the same time. When I first sensed him I sensed the Celtic Goddess Brigid at the same time. She, too, is fire and earth. In fact, I sensed them as a couple which blew my mind. A year later I was reading Doreen Virtue’s book, Archangels and Ascended Masters and she, too, experiences them as a team.

I’ve been trying to figure out depression and anxiety for most of my life. I think I may have finally identified a key piece in releasing some of both states of mind.

(UPDATE: This post is not a call for help on my part. This is about angels and depression, not angels and “professional help” and depression.  Don’t bother  spamming the blog disguised as a comment with links to your cure for depression.  I’ll delete it.)

I believe that it is the constant tape of critical and judgmental thoughts about ones self running all day in the background of the mind that does more harm than anything, even biochemistry. Then, after a certain point, a person can’t take anymore from themselves and they start criticizing and judging everything and everyone around them because they are overflowing with negativity about themselves. Then everyone and everything around them starts to mirror the irritation and anger back, and life really does become hell. It’s a vicious cycle.

Problem is, most of this is going on so automatically that you may not hear it at all, or you may just accept it as the way it is. Lately I keep running into the theory that depression (and the anxiety that often comes with it) is best handled with a combination of talk therapy and pharmaceuticals. The problem with talk therapy is that it’s usually just for an hour or two a week and you still have that negative tape running in your head all the time you’re awake. Sometimes the drugs take care of the “tape”, sometimes they don’t.

Saying affirmations, listening to subliminal recordings, doing self-hypnosis can help, but sometimes your negative self-talk is so deeply ingrained it prevents you from trying them in the first place. It’s the Eeyore syndrome on steroids.

This is where the angels come in. They can be asked to reprogram your subconscious and unconscious minds from a negative outlook to a positive one. It’s likely they will lead you to outside help as well. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to make an appointment with a doctor or a therapist, or order some affirmation recordings. In the meantime, believe that they can help you where you can’t help yourself. Every time you start to feel sad or anxious, ask the angels to come in and help you. You may still feel bad for a while, or you may feel relief right away. Hang in there and believe that they are helping you.

Some people would say that you should envision feeling great right away and you will – like that! *snaps fingers* Well, I know how this depression thing works and I’m sorry, but it just doesn’t happen like that all the time. Not until you have had a chance to build up your self-esteem muscle. So, ask the angels to help. Imagine them throwing you a lifeline and you’ve been in the deep, cold, water for such a long time that it’s perfectly okay if it takes you a little while to recover. If you are deep enough into negative self-talk you’ll likely beat yourself up about not feeling great right away. Give yourself a break while the angels do what they do.

Another reason for doing this this way is that the part of you that makes constant judgments tends to think it’s god. You could hand over your depression to God, but for many, many of us God is indelibly imprinted in our minds as an incredibly harsh and judgmental being. To get out of this cycle it’s better to get away from any mental connections to judgmental emotions and into unconditional love. Angels NEVER pass judgment on people. EVER. They are completely focused on their specific purposes to help people (and the earth and everything in it).

If you want specific angels to ask for help from, I recommend Archangels Raphael, Metatron, and Michael. Raphael is a healer and is also a gatekeeper, opening the way for other angels. He can attune himself to anybody very easily. He really pours on the unconditional love, too. Metatron is a master of communication and you need to relearn how to communicate with yourself. Michael is for protection and is the chief negativity buster. And just really cool.

BTW…am I a health care professional or certified counselor? No. Am I qualified to give medical advice? No. I DO know about angels and depression from years of personal experience. If you are currently taking medication or getting counseling or other health care for depression or anxiety, stay with it. Let the angels use the help you are getting now to help them get you beyond this cycle.

I was doing a Reiki session yesterday and this came to me from the “angel channel”.

I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of time ruminating and worrying about the future.  My mind is usually out there scouting the path ahead.  The message from the angels was that I could visualize angels and angelic energy as little pink hearts spreading out from me into my future, and that it would make life easier.  I don’t even have to see all the details of the future but rather focus on the angels being there already, smoothing the way ahead of me.  I’m excited to see what practicing this will do.  If you try it, let me know how it turns out.

I have a feeling that others who work with angels have written about this before me, so my apologies to them for the angelic plagiarism.  That’s the downside of being as intuitive as I am.  I get information from the source but there is no way to prove it.

I have a squidoo “lens” about communicating with angels, and own several books on the same topic. It came to me this evening, in what I guess I’ll call a “muse moment”, that the easiest way to make a connection with the angels is a simple two step process that goes like this:

1. Ask to connect. For example, say you want to know that Archangel Michael is around you. All you do is say something like “Michael, I want to talk to you” or “Michael, show me you’re here”.

2. Expect things to start showing up in your life that make you think of Michael (or whichever angel) , sometimes in odd places. You’ll probably hear the name more than you’re used to. Perhaps it will be the name of the author of a book that has an answer to a question you have. Perhaps you will repeatedly see swords (a common Michael symbol) in the world around you as you go about your day. Perhaps you will see things that you privately associate with Michael.

That’s all there is to it. Once you do that, and feel confident you have a solid “link”, you can ask for guidance on specific things. The only hard part is waiting. It’s not the same as Googling Michael (although that might be what brought you to this blog entry), but I’d say within 48 hours you should have at least one sign that he’s paying attention. Or any other angel you want to talk to, including your own guardian angel.

It’s just like when you learn about something for the first time and then suddenly you seem to be hearing about it everywhere. Could be that your mind starts filtering through all the stimuli around you to find references about what you’ve just learned. Or it could be that the angels wanted you to know about this thing and are bringing the references into your range of attention. Or both. By using this technique you’re using that same mechanism to help the angels communicate with you.

Ah…already I can hear some of you saying, “but how do I know it’s really an angel”? You will feel unconditional love and happiness. If there’s something specific you need, then ask for the angels to give you the inspiration or courage – or whatever you need – to do it yourself. I wouldn’t worry about “evil spirits” interfering, but it’s really easy to trick yourself with your own mind. If it feels good and is beneficial to all concerned, then whether it’s really angels or some hidden part of your Self at work doesn’t really matter. Communicate with the angels for inspiration and support – and the occasional miracle.

Try it. Let me know how it goes.

This afternoon I found a great “Angelic Clearing Healing and Blessings” guided meditation, free to download. It was recorded during a workshop given by Kevin Core. I had the sense of actually being in the group while listening to it. Although I don’t see the angels in exactly the same way as outlined in the meditation, I still think it’s a powerful thirty minute visualization nonetheless, and with no cost to boot.

Here is the link to it: Angelic Clearing, Healing and Blessings.

I had a strong sense that if more people did this meditation it would actually raise the vibration of the planet as a whole. It is also an attunement. Good stuff.

One of the ways to communicate with angels is to draw them. This is not the kind of art where you carefully plan out what you are doing ahead of time. Instead, you start out with a doodle and see where it leads you. It’s a lot like watching clouds in the sky and seeing what faces or animals you see. It’s also a lot like being a very small child who just picks up whatever crayon he or she likes the best and plays with it to see what happens. Often I find that if I go ahead and use the color I think is exactly wrong it turns out to be exactly right, adding a richness to the drawing I wouldn’t have had otherwise.

Instead of talking about it, let me show you. I didn’t realize it at the time I created this, but it seems that the “video” is helping people attune themselves to angels as well.

With the help of Archangel Raphael I have just crafted a guided visualization for you to read and enjoy as a way to help you align your energy with his. If you have requested a free attunement from me you can read it as a way to intuitively “download”the attunement.

Do you need to ask me for an attunement at all, then? Not really. But sometimes it helps to have somebody else to pass the message along, and I know how.

Below is the link to click on for the page with the visualization.

Guided Visualization

What’s an attunement, you ask?

And what’s the catch? There isn’t one.

An attunement is a term I’ve picked up from being a Reiki practitioner. It means that you are spiritually and psychically brought into alignment with a certain energy or vibration. It is exactly like tuning two or more musical instruments to the same pitch.

In this case, by asking me for an attunement, you will be attuned to the frequencies of Archangels Michael and/or Raphael, depending on what you need. And why would you want to do that? I’ve listed some reasons here at my Archangel Michael Squidoo lens and also my Communicating with Angels lens.

One of the main benefits is that it helps strengthen your connection with angelic energy so that the angels can help you more easily. It’s a lot like cell phones. You can be talking to somebody and suddenly get cut off when you get out of range of a tower, right? Our own psychic gunk often gets in the way and cuts our lines of communication with the angelic levels. You can be asking for help, get cut off in the middle and the angels can’t find their way back to assist you. The attunement is like adding more cell phone towers in your service area.

You may be wondering if it’s brainwashing or some kind of hypnotic induction that will make you do something against your will. Nothing of the sort. It is purely a way to add “bandwidth” to your angelic connection.

So how does it work? Again and again I am amazed at how angels are like the ‘Net. It’s as though the ‘Net has existed for millenia out there in the unseen world and is just now manifesting in our world. Basically your asking for the attunement starts the process. The angelic “server” is always there, just waiting for you to access it and download your attunement. One way to dial-up the server is to ask me for an attunement. Then you can download the “file”. The archangels themselves actually do the attunement, I don’t. I’m really more of a service provider. I plug you in and away you go. All it takes is my intention for it to happen.

What should you do to actually “download” the attunement, then? Honestly, you don’t have to do anything. It’s helpful to sit down for a few minutes and get into a receptive state of mind, but you don’t have to. You might feel more if you do, such as a nice warmth or tingling in your body, your muscles may relax more than they do normally, or you may find yourself taking deeper breaths. But technically, the minute you ask for the attunement, you’re getting it. There’s something about asking another person for help that makes the angels job easier.

Some of you may be wondering how an angel attunement is different than Reiki. Ultimately it’s all Universal Life Force, right? Angelic energy is a specific kind of channel for that energy. I sense it as pink and pearly energy, time and time again. Reiki is often seen as purple.

Finally, then, what’s the catch? There isn’t one. As you can see, I don’t really do much in this process, so I don’t feel like you owe me anything. I’m doing this for the angels, and they help me in other ways. It would be great if you’d buy some of my art or rate my Squidoo lenses, leave a nice comment perhaps, but really you don’t have to do anything but ask for the attunement. Just send me an e-mail at….. UPDATE, August 4, 2007:  I will no longer be taking personal requests for attunements.  For more about what to do instead see my latest blog entry by clicking here.
