Should we charge for our services or does that devalue them? (part 1)


I started this off as a musing on if we should charge for our services, but found it became a little more personal as I explored options. I offer it here to others who face the same dilemmas and welcome any thoughts and suggestions on this subject.  People have strongly suggested that I should start…

Empath series: More on psychic burnout or how many hats do I have here?


One of the things that contribute to psychic burn out are the requests for help that I get on a pretty regular basis. For instance, I get frequent requests for help by e-mail. I would say, they would come at the rate of around four to six a month, and while not very many in…

Empath Series: Psychic burnout or I’m too exhausted to think of anything witty to write here.


I took some well-earned vacation this month. (Hence the lack of blogs.) As usual, I find that I tend to collapse into a heap, and while the body is willing, the spirit is not.

My occasional rants: Customer Service in Australia or stop bsing me.


For those who don’t know, I live in Australia. It’s been a wonderful place for me to live, though lately we’re going downhill with our standard of living. (Though we still have wonderful conditions.) One of the things that drive me nuts here, though, is our standard of service. As long as I can remember,…

Empath Series – Bach flower remedy: More on Elm or what else does it do?


I thought I’d continue on with the remedy Elm today. There are many levels to each remedy, and Elm certainly is no exception. If anyone has any requests on what remedy can help what, let me know and I'll feature it sooner than later. The Symptoms of an Elm type: Temporarily loss of confidence in…
