THE PSYCHIC CORNER
2012 the year the 'Mayan's, 'Nostradamus' and a few other 'prophets' have deemed the year of Apocalypse and the earth's destruction of humanity.
For as long as there has been humans on the earth, there has been people making predictions. As a psychic, I have myself made several predictions over the years but none as brave as the destruction of the human race.
Staring into the abyss and waiting for it to acknowledge your presence can be tiring and taxing to say the very least. Of course, not all predictions come to pass (unless you are one of the 'Charmed' ones).
Making predictions can make or break a psychics career as well. No one wants to go to a psychic who can't accurately tell the future. Right?
So what makes a good prediction? Well, a clear vision is always a good place to start. Meditation is key to seeing what the Goddess is trying to reveal. A calm seer is far better for spirits to communicate with.
The following items will aid in your 'vision' quest for predictions:
- Candles (I use white, red, yellow, orange, purple)
- Pentagram (I use my candles and place them to form the pentagram)
- Athame (to cut through the darkness and for clarity of vision)
- Incense (dragon's blood and myrrh are great to use)
- Smudge of sage/lavender (to cleanse the spirit and the home)
- Paper and quill (to write down anything that is required)
- Summoning spell (to call on assistance from spirits or the Gods/Goddess)
It takes time to perfect your meditation and communication with the spirit world. Once a good line is made, the visions will become easier and easier to get and understand.
My predictions for the upcoming year:
- Major destructive Earthquake on West Coast of North America
- Several plane crashes back-to-back in Europe that cause 2 airlines into bankruptcy over lawsuits (bad safety inspections)
- Assassination attempt on President of United States and Prime Minister of England
- Large terrorist attack prior to beginning of opening ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics
- Deaths of 5 major celebrities due to suicide
I'm quite aware that not all the predictions may come true, but they are made just the same.
Stay tuned to this new series on my blog.

Every year resolutions are made and every year they are broken. What is a 'resolution' and why do we make them?
Dictionary.com defines a resolution as: A formal expression of opinion or intention made.Based on that definition, any conversation of worth could be deemed a 'resolution'. How is it, then that a large percentage of resolution makers do not manage to retain their resolutions? Simple, life is unpredictable. Free will is the one variable that is impossible to predict when it comes to making resolutions.
Why not just make a promise to 'quit smoking' instead of making a resolution?
Dictionary.com defines a promise as: A declaration that something will or will not be done.Okay so promise and resolution seem to resemble one another on the surface, but what is it that makes resolutions easier to break than a promise? This answer is easy too. No 'inner' voice.
The 'inner' voice or 'conscience', is what gives promises such credence. We expect those who make promises to do whatever they can to maintain the promise made. Resolutions don't seem to come with a built in conscience meter.
We certainly 'try' to keep resolutions that are made. That is, until that waitress walks by with a 'triple chocolate torte'. Damn her all to hell!
When a resolution is broken, the ramifications aren't as severe as it is when a promise is broken. Unless, of course, it's a military resolution, but we aren't even going there. (that's a whole different ball of wax)
So, why do we make resolutions? To make us feel better? Sure. To show determination and self restraint? Okay. Because resolutions are fun to make and break? That's it! Resolutions are a fun!
A group of friends can get together over a bottle of wine or two and make their resolutions for the upcoming year. The typical resolutions made are for weight loss, exercising, better job, new house, be happier etc. There really isn't a rule book for making resolutions. Nor is there a 'resolution cop'.
Go ahead, make a resolution for this year. It doesn't hurt (much) and you never know, you might just find out how strong your 'inner voice' really is.
I promise that I definitely am not making any resolutions this year. Wait, is that a resolution?

Pitt Meadows is 'Stomping' for Coffee
Nestled nicely amongst the 'Tudor' style homes in the newly developed
, is the Stomping Grounds Coffee House. Osprey Village
The Stomping Grounds Coffee House opened it's doors on April 4th 2011 and hasn't looked back. Owners Dylan and Anahi English took their vision of a 'community' based coffee shop and turned it into what you see today.
The Coffee House is perfectly situated alongside a pedestrian path and dog friendly park on
Barnston View Road in Pitt Meadows.
Stomping Grounds is proud to serve the 'fair trade' Salt Spring Island Coffee brand. They also serve up several different local food merchants to tempt your palate. The large bay doors give it a bright and airy look and they even have a 'little stompers' area for children to play in.
The Stomping Grounds Coffee House also has catering available for any party needs whether large or small.
Open 7 days a week, starting at 730am Monday to Friday and 9am on the weekends (closing at 530pm all week). There is plenty of parking available and even more bike lock up areas.
While enjoying a steamy cup of 'java', why not stroll across the street and check out the new South Bonson Community Centre or grab a blanket and sit and watch the sunset.
You can find them on Facebook as well as their own website and be sure to check out their event page for weekly entertainment at the Coffee House.
