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.

Believe in the Angels
Learn About the Angels
Meditate With the Angels
Pray with the Angels
Share With the Angels
Healing with the Angels
Honor the Angelic Presence in All Life
Attune to the Angels
Expect Angelic Blessings
Be an Angel

I felt inspired to create a new yahoo group today for the purpose of having a group share of archangel reiki energy. It’s my own variation of reiki, but I am attuned to Usui Reiki Level II and a Kundalini Reiki Master.

This is a group open to anyone interested in opening their channels of communication with the archangels and who would like to join in a daily energy sharing circle. It is my intent that you will be able to join with the group energetically whenever it is convenient for you and we will all benefit. You don’t have to send archangel energy daily to the group, but you will certainly receive it daily.

You do not have to be attuned to Reiki to be in the group. I will attune each person who joins the group to my own variation of Reiki which comes through the archangels.

I’d like to keep posting to the group confined to positive-toned messages, mainly about your experiences with the group’s energy and the archangel energy. It’s very easy for a group like this to turn into a giant whine and sympathy fest. None of us has time for that because frankly, the archangels have bigger plans for us!

If you want to do a brief check-in each day and let us know where you’re at that’s great, but no petitions for reiki or energy for any specific purposes. You’re getting help from the archangels just by being in the group and that’s enough.  You are getting what you need the most right now.

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.

The other day I had a doctor’s appointment and I was worried. I typed medical reports about cancer patients for thirteen years and I pretty much have it in my head that cancer’s going to be the cause of my demise. I’m always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

So I was worrying about cancer and thinking about angels. What came to me from the angel “channel” was to imagine my cells being filled with little pink hearts. It was such a cute idea I immediately felt better. Who knows, it might actually work on health issues as well. Mainly it was a way for me to stop worrying.

After that I had another inspiration. Start another blog with the goal of doing 1000 pieces of heart-themed art, and combine it with the current “art-a-day” and ACEO (little 3.5 x 2.5 inch pieces of art) craze. So I did. You can see the blog at heArt-a-Day.

I then had another nudge from the angel channel to do a pink ribbon heart colored pencil ACEO and give the proceeds to Susan G. Komen for the Cure (a group that is supporting breast cancer research). I don’t have any personal ties with this group at all, nor have I lost anybody to breast cancer, but…when the angels, talk, I listen. Unfortunately nobody bid on it after three times of listing it on eBay, but you can click HERE to see it anyway.
