Psychics Q & A

Share Button

Question: “How exactly does a psychic see future events? Where does that insight come from?”

Answer: The idea of magically perceiving details about the future takes some getting used to. But once you do, the awareness can be invaluable, saving you enormous amounts of time and money.

Just as time travel isn’t considered wild science fiction any longer, tapping into future circumstances either by remote viewing or intuition doesn’t seem to be as frowned upon as it was in decades past.

“Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.” Stephen Hawking

“The only real valuable thing is intuition.” Albert Einstein

Our findings and direct experience tell us that every psychic perceives the amount and type of future information differently.

Some see clear images (clairvoyance), some hear (clairaudience), some simply know (claircognizance), some feel (clairsentience), some smell or taste, and some have unique blends of some or all of the above.

Someone may see an obvious image in his mind, others my see symbols such as elements of nature, and still others may see something in her mind’s eye that reminds her of a personal circumstance–her higher-self relays the information to her this way so it’s familiar enough to recognize to help pass on the message. The insight is often so subtle that those who aren’t focused wouldn’t perceive it.

Another means of prophecy incudes tapping into the subject’s super-conscious (higher-self or soul), or the Akashic Records, where all information about the past, present, and future is stored. Similarly, spirit guides of the Light can serve the psychic in this way, like an other-dimensional assistant. It’s easy to read people this way for those who possess the aptitude, provided the subject is willing, but not easy to predict mundane events because earthquakes and other natural disasters, for example, don’t have higher-selves to tune into.

One way to describe how a psychic sees the future is that it’s like remembering back to an event in your life years ago; you see pieces of a circumstance or even scenes like in a movie. It’s like remembering parts of your vacation; you’ll recall mostly the highlights and the overall feeling. In this sense, the past, present and future are all one to the medium and she merely looks into the future just like she would the past.

One challenge about psychic perception is that it’s not easy to frame the timing. To the seer, the event or circumstance may appear to be only a couple years in the future, yet may not transpire for more than ten years from now. In our experience, comprehensive astrology and numerology are priceless tools to define the timing of life events and circumstances, especially in conjunction with psychic impressions.

Our belief is that at least 75% of the core events and conditions in your life are fated (or destined, predetermined, predestined–these words all have the same meaning). The 25% category includes information the psychic may pick up that never transpires.

It seems you aren’t supposed to have a consistent, direct, conscious link to the other side because if you did, it would probably drive you insane, not to mention give you the ability to avoid many life lessons your soul intended you to have.

Our findings show some people have more psychic talent than others, just as some have more physical or intellectual talent than others. No matter how much psychic ability you have, there are things you can do to further your talent, including the following: eat well; get enough sleep; exercise regularly; avoid excess alcohol and sugar; avoid drugs; clear your energy, and meditate daily.

Ultimately, discerning future circumstances and events is a matter of accessing hidden information. Whether it’s instinct, gut feeling, astrological and numerological charting, pure psychic talent, or other means, seeing ahead along the timeline of life, we believe, can be as natural as looking back into your past.

How to Avoid the Disappointment of Fate

Share Button

Sometimes, no matter what you try, a specific goal is unattainable, which could mean fate rules over your free will. The more effort you put into it, the worse the disappointment. Even though this is an unfortunate part of life, you can minimize the disappointment of fate with your awareness.

Many claim you can reach any goal, as long as you “believe” you can do it.

Some recommend using spells or magic for goals. Unfortunately, if you manipulate anyone with spells or magic, this is black magic and will create plenty of negative karma for you. Also, we’ve noticed, over years of observation, that spells can’t permanently override karma or fate.

Some pander to the instant gratification desires of the masses. They don’t acknowledge (or don’t know) that you can’t always have what you want if it’s not meant to be. Even worse, they fail to state the importance of knowing yourself, your talents and skills, and whether a specific goal is part of your good karma and fate.

We see this as an attempt to cheat fate.

Does that sound too harsh? We’d rather be direct with our findings than lead you down a path of illusion like we see happen too often.

Many well-meaning New Age entrepreneurs try to help people with popular spiritual concepts, but if they ignore fate, they are doing their customers a disservice. Fate or destiny (same thing) is one of the main deciding factors that determines how your life unfolds and whether, ultimately, you reach and maintain a goal or not.

Regardless of how much inspiration and energy you direct toward your desire, and no matter how much you heal yourself, it will not happen unless it’s part of your path.

Sure, inspiration is wonderful and can catapult you over doubt and other roadblocks. But when it’s not grounded in spiritual truth, you’ll stumble.

How do we know fate is a spiritual truth? Don’t take our word for it. Study ancient, comprehensive (not the superficial versions like horoscopes) numerology and astrology obsessively for years. Turn off the TV because you won’t have time for it, or much socializing either. You’ll find that it’s as complex as learning a new language, and your accuracy will increase even more when you use your intuition with the knowledge. In order to increase the accuracy of your intuition, you must meditate daily. Then observe people, their personalities and timing, with these ancient sciences (yes, they are sciences) and track their goals. Goals such as finding a lasting and (truly) compatible relationship partner, creating wealth, overcoming health problems, and career success are a good start. You notice that when a goal is conducive to someone’s fate (as outlined by these two ancient sciences) they are much more likely to reach it. When fate is not on their side, they won’t, or if they do, it will be a major struggle or they won’t maintain it.

How to Avoid the Disappointment of Fate

Drop expectations
, especially when your goal depends upon others (like in your love life, for example).

Drop any sense of entitlement. You may or may not have earned the good karma (mainly through past lives) or talent (through past lives and the present life) for a specific goal, or it may or may not be part of your best path this time. But don’t let that discourage you. It’s important to strive for a goal that feels right to you because even if you don’t reach it this time, what you accomplish or learn in the process might be invaluable for your future. Keep in mind that if you don’t achieve a cherished goal, your soul may have planned all along that the striving for that goal was the important part.

Meditate so you can more easily sense if striving for a certain goal is part of your fate and good for you or not. Ask in meditation, from whomever you pray to, for guidance.

Ask for help in (and out of) meditation every step of the way. We’ve received insight (what we need, not always what we want) countless times after asking for it (from God, Guides of the Light, or our Higher Self), but it may not always come right away or in the form we expect.

A simple question to whoever you pray to can be, “What’s my next step to ______ ?” Ask for insight as often as you feel the need. With practice, you might wake up with answers if you ask before bed.

Have faith. Replace fears with faith and gratitude.

Do all you can to reach the goal, but also accept there may be unseen (for now) reasons for not reaching it.

If things turn out differently than you hoped, meditate and ask for help in dealing with disappointment or loss. Ask for help with acceptance, in seeing the bright side, and with being grateful for what you have rather than what you don’t.

Our FREE Spiritual Detox Script can help you get rid of toxic energy and help you make the most of your life.

Predestination and Crime Q and A

Share Button


“Isn’t there always deliberation involved with behavior? Wouldn’t you say that an individual who deliberates is free to commit a crime or not, which would indicate most crimes even fraud or murder aren’t fated?” 


We would like to believe that life’s unpleasantness is avoidable, that bad behavior can be prevented, but our long-term findings tell us otherwise. Unique personal adversity, including myriad unavoidable life events and circumstances appear to be part of the predetermined human experience.

Impulse Control

Self-control allows you to manage emotions and personal conduct toward goal-achievement relating to all areas of life.

Impulse-control disorder is classified as a psychiatric disorder involving the failure to control one’s actions. Examples include ​regularly blurting out inappropriate comments in a social setting, the inability to stop eating or drinking, white collar crime involving the compulsion to habitually trade on insider information, ​frequent physical theft, or uncontrollably committing acts of violence.   

A psychopath (zero remorse) with lack of impulse control or even someone with sociopathic tendencies (​may be remorseful, but does it anyway) makes matters much worse. Many killers don’t deliberate, or even have time to deliberate if their life is on the line. It’s kill or be killed.

Lack of Impulse Control Can be Inherited

According to a research article titled “Genetics of Impulsive Behavior,” there is no single gene that can be identified as an “impulsivity gene,” but the lack of impulse control can be inherited: “As described, impulsivity is a heritable, disease-associated trait, useful as an endophenotype for gene discovery. Impulsivity is, however, not a unitary construct and, as discussed, multiple laboratory behavioural tasks and self-reported measures are used to assess different aspects of impulsivity. On the other hand, it is also true that there is no one gene that will be identified as an ‘impulsivity gene’…”

Impulse Control and Dishonesty

A Wall Street trader convicted of extensive insider trading and fraud spends two years regularly visiting a psychotherapist, yet still fails to understand what motivated him to lie and cheat. You could say an intensely competitive and merciless system in which he worked encouraged him to act illegally. But if he were to fully take responsibility for his actions, he would admit it’s possible he has an innate tendency to act dishonestly, considering his behavior from an early age as well as his long, corrupt career as a Wall Street “bankster.”

What about parents who teach their kids to take responsibility for their actions? Does that prevent bad behavior? Our findings tell us that even if the subject had loving parents who taught him well, ​if his astrology and numerology patterns include strong negatives, the parents’ influence won’t stop it; he still has the likelihood of being a bad egg.

We aren’t contending that all crooks are born that way because environment plays a role too. However, recognizing patterns in the natal astrology and numerology charts firmly representing duplicity, along with handwriting that includes the same (noting his personality at the time of writing), as well as lack of impulse control, suggest inherent problems.

Predestined Incarceration

Based on pattern recognition involving comprehensive astrology and numerology, criminal activity and incarceration appear to be fated at least some of the time. From a spiritual standpoint (considering reincarnation) we’ve noticed personal natal patterns that suggest select individuals have had past incarnations including long stretches of incarceration, such as a prisoner of war, or a jailed criminal. It’s reasonable to think that incarceration leaves an indelible mark on the subconscious that may carry over into future lives: avoid impulsive, reckless action or you’ll be put in a cage. It’s possible that an individual’s higher-self wanted the prison time to work on impulse control or other personality traits–spiritual growth tends to blossom through solitude and hardship. 

Astrology and Numerology Patterns and Family Dynamics

Our findings show that whenever significant, life-changing events (rewarding or challenging) occur in someone’s life, they are reflected in his or her astrology and numerology patterns, as well as in those of his or her loved ones, which supports the idea of predetermination. Something had to happen for that individual and his loved ones to endure, or enjoy, the ensuing life circumstances. 

For example, the white-collar criminal’s family enjoyed two decades of the high life, but then it all came crashing down. Both the good life and later destitution are reflected in the four individuals’ natal and timing patterns (husband, wife, and two daughters). Even before the aftermath the impoverished existence could have been foretold because all four family members have patterns in the charts that symbolize dramatic changes, and lack support for enduring wealth. Extremes are easy to identify, like with the above, but sometimes the patterns aren’t as explicit. 

A lot more in life appears to be fated than most people realize, but keep in mind that you have free will to attempt to mitigate life’s challenges, as well as optimize life’s rewards. 

Feeling stuck, down, or scattered? Our FREE Spiritual Detox Script can help you get rid of toxic energy and improve your life.

Fate and Predetermination Q and A

Share Button

The reason the topics of universal order vs. randomness, and personal fate vs. complete free will are so fascinating is because they deal with the meaning of life itself. 

Predicting future trends is an ancient, and now largely underground tradition since the Age of Reason; seers, psychics, number mystics, and astrologers such as Ptolemy, Vettius Valens, Abu Ali Al-Khayyat, Ibn Ezra, and others guided emperors, kings, queens, religious leaders, military generals, warlords, and others, and continue the practice to this day.

We received this inquiry recently on the topic:

“Is it really possible to know ahead of time when an event in your life is going to happen? Isn’t this ‘cheating’ in a sense? Because then you can prepare ahead of time for the event to either make sure it happens or be better equipped to handle it if it’s a negative event. Wouldn’t you be missing the life lesson involved if you know if and when it’s going to happen?”

The apprehension involving personal fate is understandable, but our long-term findings may give you some peace of mind: you have free will to react in a positive way to whatever is destined in your life, and besides the major challenging stuff, the key rewards in your life are also predetermined. Additionally, your predetermined framework allows you to get what your heart desires at least some of the time. ​

“To all those broken or hopeless, I have learned this: Be grateful for every single person who was part of your story. The ones that hurt you. The ones that helped you. The ones that came, and the ones that left. They all taught you. Don’t think for a moment that any of it was random. There are no oversights with God. Only perfectly crafted chapters in each unique journey.” Yasmin Mogahed

How To Gain An Educated Viewpoint On Personal Fate

One sure-fire way to gain an educated viewpoint on the topic of fate vs. free will is to do the following: observe the key events and circumstances in the lives of many individuals while simultaneously identifying the corresponding patterns in the comprehensive astrology and numerology charts. Witness daily the constant repetition of patterns directly corresponding to life happenings for more than twenty years and you’re assured to consider the theory of personal fate as an integral part of the human experience. 

“Whosoever may be adapted to any particular event or pursuit, will assuredly have the (collective energy of various heavenly bodies) indicative thereof very potent in his nativity.” Claudius Ptolemy, 2nd century AD astrologer

As the astrologer and, or numerologist improves his or her ability to recognize patterns in the charts, the illusion of chance​ involving key life circumstances disappears.  

“Random chance was not a sufficient explanation of the Universe — in fact, random chance was not sufficient to explain random chance.” Robert A. Heinlein

Why Fate Exists

Our long-term findings lead us to conclude, thus far, ​that the philosophy of challenging and rewarding unchangeable destined events in everyone’s life is based on the concept that there is a vastly bigger purpose to life than, what is today considered as, success in love life, family, career, and finances. Briefly, it has to do with understanding and growth on a soul level. Your soul (not your current personality) chooses to live many lifetimes to carry out specific undertakings. 

Specific Events vs. General Inclination

We readily identify the general inclination of personal fate (e.g., love life, friends, money, career success, etc.), yet identifying the exact future date of specific events is much more challenging. We sometimes get the date of a specific event correct, but it’s very rare for a psychic or astrologer to consistently do this on a regular basis. Much easier is, for example, determining optimum time frames for planned launches, mergers, acquisitions, speculation, and taking on an adversary. Extremes (e.g. a very rough personal six month period that would equate to disaster for risky speculation) are easy to identify in the charts. It’s also easy for us to ascertain compatibility, and optimum personal timing to make the most of your life in all areas, within the realm of your personal fate. So you avoid wasting time trying to plant your garden in winter, as the saying goes.  

Just as you know when it’s storm season in the Caribbean and there is potential for more severe storms than in the rest of the year, you can forecast the periods of time, for example, when your love life is optimum (and when it isn’t).

How Much In Life Is Fated

Our long-term findings show that at least 75% of the main circumstances and events in your life are predestined. 

Consider some of the things in your life that you have zero control over, i.e., that are fated: the actions of others—what they say, think, or do; criticism and rejection from others; illness, disease, physical limitations (though it’s possible to reduce susceptibility through good health practices); your ingrained subconscious fears and defenses–though you can modify and learn to live with many unconscious fears (e.g., fear of expression, fear of heights, et al.), most can’t be completely erased; the level of unique, inborn harmony or disharmony between you and another person; how and when your integrity, honesty, faith, and convictions are tested; the family you are born into; your early life environment; the undercurrent of your personal karma that shapes much of  your life; natural disasters; God’s laughter when you announce your plans for the future. 

On the bright side, consider some of what you can control: how you respond to things in your life that you can’t control, considering you don’t lack impulse control (which is largely discerned through handwriting analysis); the level of inspiration you generate and focus you apply (to the limits of your personal energy) to make the most of your personal fate; what you think and say (aside from subconscious impressions, which greatly influence your thinking); your overall attitude; who you associate with; what you eat; how you spend your leisure time; how much money you spend and save; how much unconditional love and sympathy you express, which can ​also greatly impact your life, within the realm of your personal predetermination. 

“While in theory randomness is an intrinsic property, in practice, randomness is incomplete information.” Nassim Nicholas Taleb


We’ve found that some things in life, both difficulties and rewards, you can’t know ahead of time, no matter how insightful you are. It’s sort of like a built-in defense designed by your higher-self to make sure the circumstance or events can’t be avoided. Someone, such as a psychic, may know, but is predestined to never relay the information to you.

You won’t miss the key life lessons you’re supposed to endure (or enjoy), no matter what. Those important life episodes are destined and then you have free will to react and seize opportunities. 

It isn’t “cheating” to know the general inclination of future challenging fate, or even the specific circumstance, just as sailors and investors aren’t cheating by knowing weather and economic forecasts. You aren’t cheating by being forewarned of a life lesson so you can try to mitigate difficulties, just as you aren’t cheating by knowing it’s going to be freezing cold at your travel destination and dressing appropriately. 

Would you rather have the discernible, future negative circumstances in your life creep up on you and surprise you, or would you like to be prepared in advance, and better equipped to handle them? Also, wouldn’t you like to be able to optimize your rewards in life by being tipped off in advance? 

“Events may appear to us to be random, but this could be attributed to human ignorance about the details of the processes involved.” Brain S. Everitt

To believe in personal fate isn’t dangerous or fatalistic. It’s​ realistic, practical, a sign of humility, and you can still be an optimist. Discerning predetermination allows you to brace for life’s challenges and capitalize on the good parts, making the most of your life.  

“When it is all finished, you will discover it was never random.” Unknown

Fate vs. Free Will— Examples of Two Different Outlooks

Share Button

According to the theories of reincarnation, karma, and personal fate, your soul selects ​a lifetime to experience conditions, circumstances, and specific key events prior to your birth in order to learn and understand.

You have free will, within predetermined events in your life, to respond and make the most of your circumstances. 

An alternative theory insists on 100% free will, that you don’t have to experience anything you, (your personality), don’t want to experience.

Below we compare two distinct outlooks, predetermined events vs. 100% free will, as they relate to typical life circumstances.

1. “Prediction is possible, but you have the power to change coming events,” reads the assertion on the popular psychic website.

According to this philosophy, it’s possible to predict, for example, your romantic partner will leave you, but you have the power to make him or her come back. 

Although we don’t deny the power of persuasion and what you can achieve through it, what if he or she is finished with the relationship no matter what and won’t even return your messages? The obvious answer is to accept that you can’t control some life circumstances. Doing this makes it much easier to transition into single life and attract a better connection.

2. According to the “you can change your fate” philosophy, no matter the level of disharmony between you and your coworker, you can make it amiable through the power of positive thinking. 

Unfortunately, again, you can’t control the behavior of others. Also, our findings show that ​every two person connection has unique compatibility and you can’t change that either. Furthermore, some people’s red flag personality traits make it impossible to have a cordial connection with them. You can detach from horrible innate compatibility and someone’s negative personality traits, but you can’t make it wonderfully harmonious when it’s inherently horrendous.

3. Your daughter enters the local dance contest and unknown to you, one of the judges is determined that her friend’s daughter will win, and she does. Your daughter clearly has more talent than the winner, as the audience can clearly see,  but it doesn’t matter. Despite trying to change the outcome with positive thinking, as always, fate prevails.

4. A psychic predicts trouble with a neighbor who is coveting your spouse. You’re already aware of it and have taken steps to limit contact, but there’s nothing you can do about the strange circumstances that pull your spouse and the neighbor together. There’s also nothing you can do about your spouse wanting to spend time with the neighbor. The wise person accepts what he or she can’t change and stops trying to change outcomes that are impossible to alter. 

5. Your best friend was barreling down the road of bad habits and you tried to get her to stop partying, to no avail. You could have made her stop if you were insistent enough right? Nope. It was heartbreaking what she was doing to herself, incurring a lot of damage to herself and others, but there was nothing you could do about it. Interestingly, your other friend with the astonishingly accurate intuition predicted a happy outcome for the troubled friend and that’s exactly what happened. She sobered up and is now helping others avoid the dangerous path she took. While your prayers helped, it was ultimately her choice and fate that she would ditch the bad habits. Others aren’t so fortunate. Some people’s fate includes temporary excess, and others include much worse. 

Some things in life aren’t very pleasant, but it’s better to face them squarely instead of putting your head in the sand.

It would be great to be able to change fate once incarnated, but that’s not how things work on this dimension. On the bright side, embracing personal fate, and free will within your fate actually engenders an empowering and optimistic outlook, which will pay off eventually.

Your spiritual-self, or higher-self, sometimes contrasts with your ego-self’s expectations but you will save yourself a lot of heartache by rejecting the “I have 100% free will” philosophy. 

Of course, set your goals and do everything you can to achieve them, but keeping in mind that the experience is sometimes more important than reaching the desired goal ​can give you a lot of peace of mind​, as can knowing that many of the good things in life are fated too.  

Our Direct Your Destiny e-package helps you increase your self-awareness and make the most of your fate.

Spiritual Traps To Avoid At All Costs

Share Button

“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” Mark Twain

According to the New Oxford American Dictionary, ignorance is defined as “the lack of knowledge or information.”

The trap of ignorance, including spiritual ignorance, leading to bad decisions is an easy and common trap to fall into, ​so you’re not alone if you’ve done this.​ You don’t learn about how to avoid life’s everyday pitfalls in school and typically must learn the hard way, through experience. ​Negative ramifications can sometimes be avoided or minimized, such as by exercising restraint, caution, critical thinking skills, objectivity, and compassion, and we offer more tips below.

Even though the spiritual risks we mention below can’t be proven with physical evidence, our findings firmly support these theories and no one has invalidated them either. 

Below we list seven examples of what you think you know for sure that just isn’t so that can get you into trouble, according to our long-term findings.

  1. Erroneously believing that the biblical proverb “…Eye for an eye…” gives you a license to inflict bodily harm on another in revenge sets one up for some nasty negative karma. Karma, a law of the universe, symbolizes the eye for an eye notion but it takes care of itself without you needing to retaliate. Taking matters into your own hands earns you a debt you must repay, in kind. Notable exceptions involving the infliction of bodily harm include militarily defending your country, and self-defense.
  2. Nobody is looking, so you can get away with it, right? Wrong. We’re not talking about speeding or other man-made infractions, but for instance, actions that hurt others. Do the right thing even when no one is looking because the eyes of truth are always watching, as the saying goes; nobody escapes karma.
  3. The belief that you have only one life and you can abuse your body to your heart’s content is a common mistake. What if you take your earned health with you into the next life, as we’ve observed through past life regression countless times? Those who incur unhealthy addictions, taxing their health enormously, would think twice about doing so if they knew they would have to deal with the addiction eventually, in a future life, and that it won’t go away upon death. The spiritual complications of bad habits and addiction manifest as physical problems in a future life: cognitive issues, physical problems such as kidney or liver disease, and other ailments such as those caused by vitamin and mineral deficiencies.
  4. Believing that there aren’t forces of evil in the universe is a horrible mistake. It’s a good idea to at least accept the possibility of ​the existence of dark energy so you can protect yourself. Avoid opening yourself up to malicious, other-dimensional forces by limiting excess, avoid aligning yourself with demons (such as through spells). Instead align yourself with benevolent energy, like angels and other-dimensional helpers of the Light.​ Avoiding excessive pride and hate, and practicing unconditional love also goes a long way to avoid sinister energies that can block your success.
  5. The superficial notion that any two individuals can be compatible as long as they share similar interests gets a lot of people in trouble, as does the ignorance of personal timing, which can change like the seasons. Realize that compatibility, largely, isn’t up to you; try as you might, you can’t control it. It’s either there, or it isn’t. You can both be wonderful people, do all the right things, but if it’s not quite right between you in terms of compatibility, there’s nothing you can do about it but grin and bear it. As much as modern society denies it, relationships are mainly about spiritual growth through challenge (sometimes very uplifting and inspiring, other times very painful and depressing) and very few couples enjoy stellar life-long emotional, mental, and sexual compatibility.
  6. Rejecting the theory of personal timing, and that everyone’s timing is different, generates a lot of unpleasantness. The highlights (and low points) of your life are symbolized by collective natal and timing patterns. Sometimes the patterns represent successful romantic relationships and career success for example, and sometimes they don’t. The ideal is to work with your patterns, instead of against, to mitigate challenges and make the most of your karmic rewards.
  7. Sympathy to the person who ignores the universal truth that thoughts are things. Thoughts matter, including energy directed at others. Sending negative energy towards another individual incurs negative karma, which can create a vicious cycle of lifetimes of payback for cursing others. It’s natural to feel upset or angered on occasion, but direct that anger into constructive outlets and avoid sending invisible poison arrows to others unless you want to be on the receiving end of it, in equal measure.  

You have nothing to lose and you’ll save yourself a lot of suffering by following this advice, and you will avoid the trap of spiritual ignorance.

Law of Attraction: One of Many Spiritual Laws

Share Button

The most commonly known spiritual law today seems to be the law of attraction. However, our findings tell us that other spiritual laws are just as important, yet so many law of attraction advocates either aren’t aware of them, or ignore them because they clash with what they are marketing. 

“Nature is the source of all true knowledge. She has her own logic, her own laws, she has no effect without cause nor invention without necessity.” Leonardo da Vinci 

The law of attraction is about attraction through focus. Focus extensively on having a productive, wonderful day tomorrow, and your odds of experiencing that increase. ​A citizen of North Korea can focus on being ​free and ​his days of being oppressed will be numbered… or so the theory goes.

The problem with championing the law of attraction exclusively and ignoring all other spiritual laws is that our findings show other spiritual laws, such as reincarnation, personal fate, karma, and the law of universal order, frequently supersede the law of attraction.

“Magic is something that happens that appears to be impossible. What I call ‘illusion magic’ uses laws of science and nature that are already known. Real magic uses laws that haven’t yet been discovered.” Doug Henning

Laws of nature, including gravitation, matter, and light, including laws of physics such as motion, conservation of mass and energy, thermodynamics and others, are irrefutable according to modern day scientific consensus: “Laws of Nature are factual truths, not logical ones; are true for every time and every place in the universe; contain no proper names; are universal or statistical claims; and are conditional claims, not categorical ones.” 

​Spiritual laws may be more accurately described as theories from a conventional science point of view​ since we can’t prove reincarnation, for example, with physical evidence. However, we haven’t found evidence to refute these concepts either. 

In fact, we regularly see corroboration for the spiritual beliefs of reincarnation, personal fate, higher-self/soul having more influence than personality, subconscious domination of conscious self, predestination, the macrocosm reflecting the microcosm (as above, so below), and others, including the law of attraction (within reason).

“The child of three or four is saturated with adult rules. His universe is dominated by the idea that things are as they ought to be, that everyone’s actions conform to laws that are both physical and moral – in a word, that there is a Universal Order.” Jean Piaget

Instead of promoting the unrealistic myth that you can attract anything you want in this life through the law of attraction, we prefer to temper the notion with realism so you aren’t devastated if what you want isn’t part of your destined path. 

Perhaps you intend to attract the perfect mate, or the perfect business partner, or immensely lucrative clients​, or you have a burning desire to be a billionaire. ​It’s possible all that can be yours. There aren’t always quick fixes in the real world; through consistent effort and discipline, many goals can be achieved, even if it takes multiple lifetimes.

Even if you exert an extraordinary amount of effort and will toward being a billionaire, for example, and you have a knack for being in the right place at the right time, your goal of being a billionaire is still, to a great extent, decided by the actions of others. This is where karma comes into play. Good karma equates to people naturally acting in harmony with your plans. You can’t control a lot of things in life, especially the actions of others. 

“The intuition of the moral sentiment is an insight of the perfection of the laws of the soul. These laws execute themselves. They are out of time, out of space, and not subject to circumstance.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

What if, like denying all spiritual laws besides the law of attraction, your denial of all other laws of nature besides gravitation made them disappear?  

Consider what would happen: water would never boil again, and light would stop traveling the speed of light for example. Essentially, all life in the universe would cease to exist. 

The lopsided bias in favor of the law of attraction as the only spiritual law becomes evident after ​a little research and applying one’s critical thinking skills. 

Ultimately, the other spiritual laws besides the law of attraction are inspiring instead of threatening if you consider the following belief: life has infinite spiritual meaning and you have the power to shape your future existences through compassion, unconditional love, faith, gratitude, and doing what you can to reach your goals.

5 New Age Myths Debunked

Share Button

The New Age marketplace includes many honorable individuals sincerely striving to offer genuine self-help and spiritual methods to help others and make this world a better place.

However, it also includes its share of scam artists. Unfortunately, much of the metaphysical market is rooted in escapism because it sells much better than the truth. While many people may prefer escapism and poetry instead of honesty, the truth ultimately prevails.

Our philosophies are based on our long-term empirical-based findings. Our intent is to save you enormous amounts of time and inconvenience so that you avoid making the same mistakes we made on our journey.

Below we expose five New Age myths to help you navigate your spiritual path.

1. ”Your karma can be erased without having to balance it directly.” Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to atone for your past actions? Alas, karma cannot be erased, just like you can’t magically erase a hangover or the consequences of a junk food diet.

Go easy on yourself because part of the experience of being incarnated is making mistakes so you learn and avoid bigger ones. Nobody is perfect, but everyone must take responsibility for all his or her actions because nobody gets a get-out-of-jail free card after incurring karma, no matter how much forgiveness you express.

2. “Select psychics can erase your karma for you.” This is false, just as you can’t do it for yourself. Avoid the psychics who claim such powers. Also avoid those who claim to be able to control the behavior of other people (e.g., bring a lover back).

3. “As long as your intent is good, it’s okay to do spells to make others do what you want.” Nothing could be further from the truth. As soon as you use black magic—and by definition, that’s what it is—to attempt to get someone to do what you want, you cross a very dark line and set yourself up for wicked harsh karma.

Additionally, spells cast to control others invariably utilize demons or negative energy in some form or another. If you get in bed with dark forces, you are wed to them for a very long time, including being their sinister servant on the other side after death.

4. “Astrology and numerology are only about possibilities.” Once you thoroughly investigate and apply the ancient methodologies of astrology and numerology, beyond the superficiality of horoscopes, transits, progressions, and other basic modern astrology and numerology methods, you realize there’s a lot in everyone’s life that is set in stone.

Our findings clearly show that predetermined, core life experiences and circumstances are a fact of life for everyone and comprehensive astrology and numerology, through pattern recognition, effectively outline overall rewards and challenges.

5. “Psychics, astrologers, numerologists, and other seers use demonic energy in their occult work.” Select religions tout this myth and it would be amusing if it didn’t make our work harder than it already is.

First, “occult” simply means hidden knowledge. There’s nothing sinister about tapping into life’s mysteries.

Second, in order to use demonic energy, you must align yourself with that energy. Using pure psychic ability or pattern recognition (e.g., in astrology, numerology, etc.) in tracking life circumstances has nothing to do with the dark side. Those who say otherwise would know this if they examined it firsthand instead of blindly embracing the dogma they are spoon-fed.

Prophesy, which has existed long before the world’s dominant religions, is as innocuous as forecasting the weather or financial trends.

It’s possible to use demonic energy in any type of work, and metaphysics isn’t inherently demonic in nature.

To avoid dark energies, we recommend avoiding excess alcohol, drugs, negative people, black energy rituals, and spells cast to control others. Regularly visualize yourself surrounded in white Light, and ask for protection and guidance from guides of the Light, including archangel Michael and, or the God you pray to.

Karma Can Be Complex—Case Study

Share Button

The metaphysical definition of karma is a direct and clear action, then reaction, such as diligently striving to be a successful performer in several lifetimes, then finally succeeding in a subsequent lifetime.

Many people toss around the word karma, even those who don’t believe in reincarnation (though you can’t have one without the other). For example, if a cheater gets burned, they say it’s his karma. But our experience with past life regression and reincarnation research tells us karma is much more complicated than that.

The evidence in the book ”Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History” illustrates the point that karma is usually more than just a superficial tit-for-tat.

The Comanches were the most war-like tribe in the region of what is now Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. For more than 200 years, they wiped out countless Indians from other tribes. Horse trading, as well as slave trading, were their major sources of revenue. They also pioneered many forms of torture.

Perhaps not liking the fact that settlers were traversing their territory and, in some cases, occupying it, the official record is that the Comanches attacked Texans first.

The Comanches were so fierce that Mexico wanted American settlers to settle in Texas to create a buffer between them and the Comanches, who were a major threat to Mexico (the Comanches had destroyed the Spanish army).

Many other Native American tribes in the south and southwest were peaceful, but were attacked by settlers. The settlers didn’t attempt to distinguish between peaceful tribes and war-mongering tribes (e.g., Comanches). Often times they didn’t have a choice; it was kill or get killed in the west of the 1800s.

Colossal amounts of negative karma were likely generated on both sides. Early in the Comanche-settlers dispute, one Comanche raid kidnaped 10 young women, new settlers in Texas, and turned them into slaves because this is the way it had always been done for centuries between Indian tribes. Texan settlers retaliated, and so the continuous battles began, until the Comanches were finally almost wiped out.

Massive amounts of karma may have been balanced as well. It may sound cruel, but it may have been a young woman’s karma to be kidnapped and sold into slavery. Remember, slavery has occurred on this planet for thousands of years and if the notion of karma is valid, negative actions must be balanced according to universal law. Note: we aren’t condoning slavery. We’re simply relaying our findings and theorizing from a spiritual perspective.

Cynthia Ann Parker, a settler kidnapped by the Comanches at age 10, completely assimilated into the tribe’s ways. She married a Comanche chieftain, Peta Nocona, and one of her three children was the last Comanche chief, Quanah Parker. She lived with the Comanches for 24 years and was forcibly taken back to the settlers, but then escaped and was forcibly brought back again.

The settlers refused to acknowledge that she was much happier with the tribe that kidnapped her.

In her case, and perhaps many others, it could have been her bad and good karma that dictated those key circumstances of her life.

Alternatively, it may not have been someone’s bad karma to be kidnapped and sold into slavery, but instead her soul’s decision to experience it to eventually help others avoid that nightmare.

In theory, the honorable settler families who stayed away from Indian territory and didn’t cause problems, but were still targeted and devastated by Comanches, may have had a date with destiny, just as a lot of the Comanches who were slaughtered may have had a date with destiny.

Many Comanches, including chief Quanah Parker, eventually, willingly assimilated into American west culture, adopting many settler ways, even while select Comanches refused. They really didn’t have a choice in the end since their main source of sustenance (bison) was dying out.

From the standpoint of predetermination, warring tribes eliminating each other, the bison dying out, and the arrival of settlers in the American west suggests civilization was predestined to develop and perhaps even progress to where it is today.

Through the rough karma on both sides, the settlers’ ways contributed to the remaining Comanches’ survival, just as myriad explorers and cultures all over the globe have shared and benefited from each other’s unique ways of survival for eons.

Personal Fate and Behavioral Genetics

Share Button

Long-standing conventional scientific findings and modern political correctness dictate basic personality traits are due to environment, not genetics.

But advances in behavioral genetics contrast with that theory.

Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology at Harvard, says, “The findings of behavioral genetics have turned out to be substantial and robust, and new studies are linking genes with behavioral traits like IQ.”

He alludes to the age-old debate of fate vs. free will in explaining how behavioral genetics is frequently shunned due to its apparent, inherent lack of promise: “Behavioral genetics, the study of why people differ, has long been the most vilified subfield of psychology. Its signature findings—that all traits are partly heritable and that the variation that can’t be attributed to genes can’t be attributed to families either—are regularly denied by commentators who consider them too fatalistic…Unlike the cute but ephemeral journalist bait that comes out of many psychology labs, the findings of behavioral genetics have turned out to be substantial and robust.”

Although he goes on to suggest random accidents and luck may have a role in determining personality as well, in traits that can’t be linked to genes or family, behavioral genetics shines a light on the concept of predetermination.

Biologists may disagree, but our findings show random accidents and luck are completely absent from the forces that determine personality. Some call it genetics and chance, but we call it fate.

“We may be partial, but Fate is not.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

Instead of subscribing to the belief of twins being genetic mirrors and that personality differences are only due to environment, we think the truth is much deeper than that.

Being twins, we find genetics without the spiritual angle incomplete. By the way, even the most “identical” twins have different fingerprints, which seems to be a curious oversight by traditional scientists.

Our findings show you’re not just a hunk of meat without a soul. As identical twins, we associate our physical and psychological differences with our unique spiritual heritages.

We may have had many lifetimes together (fellow monks in an ancient spiritual order is one that comes to mind), but we’ve also had many lifetimes apart, in very different circumstances (including on different planets–remember, there are hundreds of billions of stars out there with potentially inhabitable planets).

The reason we’ve grown apart in looks as we get older is that we believe our unique souls are shining through, representing our differences. Everyone has a unique soul, even identical twins.

It’s curious that conventional science, since the Age of Reason over three hundred years ago, denies the soul and its influence on personality, whereas scholars in ancient times didn’t.

The fact that modern technology still can’t duplicate the Great Pyramid is a bit of a wakeup call to those who discount the ancients as barbaric and primitive. So much can be learned by putting aside oftentimes uncompromising conventional thought and considering ancient tenets and philosophies.

DNA genetic coding predetermines the core of your emotional, physical, and psychological makeup. Considering the evidence from myriad past life regression cases, and documented near death experiences (NDEs), it’s a reasonable contention that personal fate is intertwined with each person’s makeup, and that there is such a thing as the soul, an afterlife, and reincarnation.

Perhaps the notion of personal responsibility, particularly pertaining to past life actions, is one of the core reasons so many people reject the theory of personal fate. It’s not easy for many to consider the theory that you, and nobody else, are responsible for your current life circumstances. Note: as we’ve always said, even the most severe life trials may not be karmic payback, but instead what the soul (not the personality) chose to experience for whatever reason, such as to help humanity avoid such situations in the future.

Hidden, spiritual factors eclipse mundane conventional scientific contentions, just as the vast universe overshadows this relatively tiny speck of a planet. Our findings show genetics and environment are part of personal karma and fate. Happily, you’re free to do as you wish, within the boundaries of your personal fate; in spirit form, before incarnating, your higher self (soul) selects your general path for each lifetime.
