Looking back at your struggles or shortcomings for 2014, remember who helped you through those times. Feeling grateful for those who helped you through troubles can be very healing. Mr. Rogers once said that whenever things scared him on the news as a boy, his mother told him to look for the helpers. It’s a way to see the light through any darkness. Whenever there is darkness in your life, look for the helpers and you will see the light. Feeling grateful for the light in your life will invite more light in your future. Entering 2015 with a positive state of mind will help attract the very year you wish to manifest. Make this the best year yet. 🎉🎉
Julie Tour is a spiritual author and blogger who discusses her experiences with psychics and mediums that are chronicled in her upcoming book anticipated by the end of 2014. Tour believes that physical separation is an illusion in spiritual truth. Channeling and speaking with loved ones is only a mental phone call away. From her own psychic experiences, to messages from others, Tour discusses how tangible signs and chance meetings have aided in communication with her Dad who passed in 2008.
Not every psychic is a medium. A medium is someone who can channel people from beyond the grave. After her Dad passed away, Tour found herself on a journey to spiritual understanding. During that time, she received messages from many famous psychics, some by chance. Her Dad successfully came through on multiple occasions in front of an audience full of people. She discusses lessons learned, and recognizing signs and messages from her Dad in heaven.
My passion is to help people develop their own psychic abilities, re-establishing a personal connection to the divine. If you have not yet had a spiritual experience, it is more than likely your lifestyle keeping you in a certain consciousness. My journey is not the only possible journey, but I have definitely picked up a few things that have tremendously helped my intuition and psychic experiences along the way that I would like to share with you. Please feel free to post any feedback, questions, or tips you have picked up yourself while developing your intuition. Namaste xo.
Challenges are often a part of life. It’s how we flow around these challenges that determine how well we can cope with our chosen path. Does a river go through a mountain? It flows around the mountain. Sometimes you have to be like a river and flow around the difficult terrain on your path. While writing my book, not a whole lot of money was coming in, and even when impossible things seem to arise, I always found a way around an issue by detaching myself from my circumstances and being open to any opportunity that enabled me to flow around my problems.
Life is far from perfect, and there are no completely perfect people, but I am telling you losing hope is the biggest waste of time. Feeling hopeless is a trap of the ego. Hopelessness arrives when you are attached to a way of thinking about how your life should go. Your expectations will always fall short. It’s time to stop controlling your life, observing what is, and let go of ownership of the outcome. Let the universe do the heavy lifting and just keep doing your best. When you keep picking yourself up and continue to move forward, miraculous results will appear before an open heart.
Inner-connectedness between all beings is very real. I wasn’t so sure my entire life until synchronistic events made themselves an everyday presence in my life. I found myself after my Dad passed away asking questions about God, spirituality, and pushing the potential of human existence. If you accept things as they are, and never open up to the idea that we know very little as a society about the Divine, you may never find yourself on the journey to spiritual understanding. As soon as I put the intention out to find out more, many meaningful coincidences started entering into my life. What do these coincidences mean? I find that they are signs that I am on the right path. Synchronistic encounters are road marks on the map to our life purpose. Albert Einstein once said that “coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” I truly believe that. Coincidence is God’s way of co-creating miracles with us in our everyday lives. We need to follow those hunches, those opportunities that feel right to us that present themselves in our day-to-day lives. When we follow our inner divine guidance, synchronicity becomes evident continuously. As we follow our vague knowingness into the right direction, God has a way of lining up a synchronistic event in the future by aligning different circumstances throughout the past. When a synchronistic encounter finds you, without a doubt you know that a Divine intelligence brought this moment together for you.
What is synchronicity, and how do we teach those who have not yet had these encounters? Swiss psychologist Carl Jung devoted his life to answering these questions. Jung explains, “in all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.” I have found in my own life that painful experiences, and crazy outside circumstances actually turned out to be exactly what I needed on my path. Even though my feeble human mind could not see the happy outcome beyond the chaos, there seems to be a Divine intelligence that lead me to a better destination. As I started realizing that there is an invisible Divine hand in everything, tangible coincidences became very obvious to me. Jung describes this phenomenon so eloquently when he said, “synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.”Telling you about synchronicity is nothing compared to actually experiencing it for yourself.
In my best effort to explain the meaningful coincidences in my life, I have posted a video log to YouTube explaining a few of my own personal experiences with synchronicity. A more detailed account of many events in my life will be released in my upcoming book with the working title “Bitch! A Love Story”.
Feel free to share your own experiences with synchronistic events below! I would love to read them. Namaste
This past week, I received two separate questions on my Facebook from readers pertaining to the same topic. I have decided to include my responses on my blog, assuming many others may be dealing with stress and anxiety from our daily lives. Honoring your intuition and sensitivity will allow you to overcome these feelings and live a happier, healthier life.
Q: I have read really great things! I like the stuff you are interested in and the way you explain them. What really caught my eye is when you were talking about all the psychic senses, particularly the Clairvoyance part. The part that caught me was the high anxiety you felt, saying it was because you were ignoring your psychic abilities. Will you touch on that?
A: Absolutely. Even though I was very open minded to angelic beings and psychic abilities as a child, I found myself pushing spirituality aside in my early twenties to pursue a career in business, particularly insurance, which is a highly regulated industry. I found myself suppressing my true interests and intuition for a stable income.
My anxiety was off the charts. I was never super anxious or stressed growing up, even in seemingly stressful situations, but putting my spirituality out of mind made things worse. I would find myself barely able to sleep at night, even after working a 12 hour day. I was always going over and over my day in my head and thinking about all I had to accomplish the next day. On weekends, the anxiety would still be there even when I was off work. I would blast a fan during all seasons to drown out any noises to occupy my mind, and to put myself asleep to the sound.
After talking to family and a counselor about my dissatisfaction feeling anxious, I tried a few mainstream approaches. I tried the prescription drug, Ativan, and hypnotherapy focusing on releasing anxiety from my life, but nothing seem to stick or last long. I found the Ativan didn’t really do anything. Later, after studying the Indigo generation, I have learned drugs like Aderral and Ativan flush out of an indigo body rapidly. After studying “Awakening Your Indigo Power”, a certification course by Charles Virtue, I realized being unaffected by drugs is an indigo trait. According to Charles, Heaven knew that the indigo spirit would be a shock to the current world and many would try to control a “rebellious” child by suppressing their divine guidance and emotions through narcotics. Because of this, drugs and chemicals leave our systems very quickly, and have little effect.
I realized when my mind was most reflective was at night, that is when spirit was often trying to communicate with me. One night, I felt a presence near my bed. I knew it was my dad. I said outloud, “Dad, I really appreciate you visiting me, but I really need to sleep, so please leave me alone right now.” I literally felt his presence leave the room. You can be in perfect control of your abilities, but when ignoring them you are not protecting yourself. You can control with who, where, and when you want to communicate. All you have to do is think or say a boundary aloud.
These experiences set me out on a journey to actively use my psychic abilities. During work, I should have been shielding myself from the negativity around me and clearing my workspace, and home of negative energy, as well as my chakras at nighttime before sleep. In my findings, I realized sensitive people often absorb energy from others. The energy of my fast paced, stressful insurance job would stay with me well after I left the office. It wasn’t until I consciously cleared each chakra point of negative energy before bed until I started sleeping regularly. The act of releasing the day’s events each night reduced my anxiety tremendously.
At night, you can ask angels to clear the room of any negative entities or energy. I would always call on Archangel Michael to shield me and ask angels to guard my home. I highly recommend the Chakra Clearing nighttime meditation by Doreen Virtue. The book is worth buying to better understand the chakras, however, the meditation is available for free on YouTube. I often burn incense and sage as well to bring in a higher vibrational atmosphere. Once I started getting in a routine, everything calmed down for me. When you are clearing yourself regularly, new spiritual insights come more easily and rapidly.
Q: Hey Julie. Do you have any suggestions/insight into Palm/thumb stones? I’m looking for a stone to use at work, I have an extremely stressful job and it’s consuming my life (stress, negativity, etc). I’ve been doing P90X3 to burn off some stress, and trying to eat clean, but it’s not helping.
A: For calming, I really like blue calcite (blue crystal ball pictured). I have it in a crystal ball form and keep it in my room. Whenever I feel stressed, I like to hold it and it calms me down immediately. A metaphysical store should also have it in a thumb or palm form. It helps with developing psychic abilities and astral travel as well.
Also for negativity, I used to keep an amethyst (purple crystals pictured) on my desk at the insurance office. It is a protection stone and keeps the effects of negativity away from you on a vibrational level.
As a sensitive person it is important to ground yourself. You may feel really great in meditation, but that feeling will fade when you go back in your body during your day to day regimen. Keeping black tourmaline (small black crystals pictured) around will help you to bring the higher dimensional vibrations to the Earthly plane.
Keeping rose quartz around your environment will bring a loving atmosphere, and often sets the intention for the other stones to bring in love energy when placed next to other crystals.
Certain smells can also be calming. I highly recommend lavender and chamomile like the spray pictured below. I also burned a lavender candle on my desk at work. The aroma put my customers in better moods as well.
I hope this helps! If anyone has any other suggestions for what may have worked for you, please share in the comments! Namaste
There are many different ways to sense a psychic experience. Last year, I found myself unemployed for a month after I graduated college. I left my high-powered, successful position selling insurance and took weeks spending time in nature quietly by myself, taking yoga classes, writing, and meditating. Taking the time out helped me explore many different ways in which the spirit world contacts us. I found that there are many ways spirit communicates with us if we take the time to notice and listen. Sometimes in this fast track world of information, we often overlook that something we know to be true may be from a psychic awareness. Understanding many different avenues in which spirit communicates with us helps us to bring more goodness into our daily lives by listening to our guides and higher self. I find the more connected I feel, the more loved I feel as well as the more love I am able to share with others. I will speak from my own experiences, but please feel free to share your own, as we are all different.
Clairvoyance: This ability is one of the most popularized in Hollywood. Clairvoyance is when you have clear visions from your spirit guides. While some psychics have these experiences at random, others induce this experience, When in meditative states (sometimes while exercising), I’ve noticed I may have a vision that seems almost like a day dream. Weeks, or months could go by until one day, the exact circumstance I had envisioned came true. Others can have distinct visions of the past, whether in this lifetime or ancient lifetimes.
When I first realized I could be very visual about my past was when I enrolled in traditional hypnotherapy. I found myself experiencing high anxiety that I wanted to be treated for (but later I realized this had to do with ignoring spirit and my psychic abilities). When the hypnotherapist took me back to my childhood, I could remember everything extremely visually and clearly in that meditative trance. After my sessions completed, I then found I could meditate about past lives in the same way and come out with clear, visual experiences about my ancient past. I had stopped believing in reincarnation going through traditional religious and government education systems. Now, I have no doubts. Often the vision would come first, then after some historical research, I would always back up my findings.
Claircognizant: This ability is often the most unrecognized, as well as the most common psychic experience. The divinely guided ideas are not audible, but a knowingness will be experienced. Before actively pursuing the development of my psychic abilities, many people dubbed me a know-it-all. I have always had this innate ability to have an understanding about a deep topic, but often I could not explain how I got to this conclusion. I often have a ringing in my left ear, and I found I have been experiencing “wisdom downloads” from spirit. I will have ideas pop in my head and they will prove to be very successful.
My School of Business experience definitely speaks to this ability. I was always a group leader in my classes, and often the idea-girl behind many projects. I never did any formal research. I often came up with ideas and worked with people who would then apply the research needed for the business course to back up the idea. I was always confident going into group meetings because I knew I would come up with something beneficial. While other groups and students would research ideas first, then decide, I often did things backwards, and it always paid off. I always received excellent grades when following through on the ideas I received. I definitely fooled my group members to think I put a lot more research into these ideas as well. Everything worked out in the end.
Another example would be when I just knew my dad was in the room while I was looking through old photos. I started dancing and got really excited. I couldn’t explain it and my roommate and my mother thought I was clinically insane. A year ago, Theresa Caputo, TLC’s Long Island Medium, picked me out of a crowd of 3000 people and confirmed that my dad wanted me to know that he was there when I was dancing around my apartment. Tears ran down my face because I knew in that moment I was truly psychic myself.
Clairalience: Clairalience is experiencing a sense of smell for spirit to communicate with you. An example would be when I smelled my deceased dad’s cologne randomly, when there was no one to be found.
I also found myself smelling cigarette smoke when there would be no logical explanation of where it would be coming from. I have memories as a child spying on my grandmother in her basement while she snuck cigarettes while doing her laundry. Later, without bringing up a word about the experience, a local psychic confirmed that when I smelled cigarettes, it was indeed my grandmother letting me know she was with me.
Clairambience: This ability has to do with the sense of taste without eating a substance. While this ability is something I have yet to experience, many people have. An example would be tasting your grandmother’s favorite dish randomly. This is a way for your spirit guides to simply say hello.
Clairsentience: Clairsentience is what many refer to as being an “empath”. You can just feel another’s experience. An example would be when you get a feeling you will get a call from someone you know, your phone rings, you look down and it is them. There a millions of examples of being empathic. I often had feelings about when my friends were down, despite their best fake smiles. People have often asked me, how did you know? The truth is, I could feel them.
Clairaudient: Clairaudient is when you hear distinct voices. Sometimes they can sound like your own, or someone who is deceased. The key is to recognize if the voice is coming from your higher self and guides, or the ego. If you hear someone telling you to hurt someone else, that is a sign of mental illness and treatment should be sought after. When you hear a guide tell you to take a different route home, and later you find there was an accident on your usual route, that is divine guidance from your guides. Angels can be experienced as distinct voices or as a lighter version of your own inner voice. Telepathy is when you experience another human being’s voice in your own head. Having a connection like that can sound scary, but really high vibrational energy needs to be exhibited in both parties. Some have a fear of not having any privacy. The experience should be rejoiced in and not feared. The truth is we live more in a glass house in our thoughts than we realize. Our guides, angels, and God never judge us for our thoughts. Angels are non-denominational, and compassionate. They are here to help.
Many of us will experience one dominant way for spirit to communicate with us and that is perfectly normal. If you desire to enhance your natural abilities, a good course of action is to recognize your strengths and work on expanding on them. Some people do experience a vast range of ways for spirit to communicate but will have a difficult time mastering without a focus. The key is to keep an open mind, clear your own energy with a guided meditation, crystal healing, or burning incense, and spending time alone to work on your gifts. Closing out any exterior distractions will help you reach new heights with your spiritual gifts.
Please feel free to share any of your experiences. Namaste.
All at once, the world may seem like its spinning out of control and may be overwhelming for the singular human being. Behavior patterns in society must be changed for the betterment of the planet. Thomas Jefferson put goal setting so wisely when he said “If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.” The old paradigms of ego-centric thinking are no longer working for us. A shift from competition-thinking, greed, pride, control, and jealousy must be changed to compassion, generosity, self-respect, philanthropy, and a genuine love for all.
Looking at the overall agendas and themes of humanity can help to make sense out of the appearance of chaos. Genuinely, humans desire stability and peacefulness. Peace on Earth is the major goal for our race. Many people have different ideas of what a Utopia on Earth would look like, consequently everyone has different ideas on how to get there. There are general goals that are common for the average human being to want out of life, and the answers for these goals can be found in our ancient wisdom.
Bringing forward Ancient Wisdom can solve our current Earthly problems and help us reach our goals as a planet:
Abundance- People often desire to accumulate wealth. Wealth is not only monetary, but can be a wealth of knowledge, leisurely-time, and loving people in your life. The higher dimensions do not use money because everyone is sharing their resources, and manifesting what they need. In our recent history, human thinking believes in scarcity, meaning that there is not enough to go around. Many people hold the false belief that people profit at other people’s misfortune. This may have been true in recent events due to greed and a lust for power by many financial and political leaders. Looking at the hermetic teaching “As above, so below”, we understand that the laws of the universe are true in higher dimensions as it is here on Earth. Abundance is truly possible for all if we share this planet, and care for those who are hungry and sick. We can manifest our own wealth ethically, and use our resources to help the Earth in divine ways, like restoring nature, or helping the needy.
Perfect Health- Could you imagine a world where disease no longer exists? Could you imagine a world where medicine is all-natural and free? There are many natural alternatives to curing cancers. One of my good friend’s moms cured her cancer by consuming a plant-based diet and completely using natural remedies, while doctors told her she needed to start chemotherapy immediately and that her cancer was terminal and inoperable. There are countless stories of many terminal illnesses being healed through a holistic approach. Why is it that mainstream belief is that being diagnosed with a terminal illness cannot be reversed? Pharmaceutical companies profit billions of dollars from diseases like cancer. Whenever there is a misguided notion, follow the money to understand the agenda. As someone who lost a parent at a young age to cancer, this is outrageous to me. My dad took the traditional route and lost his battle within 6 months. I talk to everyone I know about alternative and holistic medicine. Knowledge is power. Ancient teachings as well as recent studies show that the mind can also heal the body. The countless placebo studies show that we have the power to heal our bodies from disease.
Energy- Could you imagine a world where energy is free? There has been countless stories of labs being destroyed that have found free energy. Scientists have been persecuted and sometimes even murdered over the discovery of free energy. For a reference, please watch the documentary “The Thrive Movement”, which is now free on YouTube. This eye-opening documentary shows the secret history of energy that governments do not teach in schools. Nikola Tesla is someone that I find fascinating. Many people have heard of Thomas Edison, but not many know of the scientist who claims his work was stolen. Tesla wanted energy to be free, while Edison’s design promoted the system we have today. This system keeps us in perpetual serfdom, working to keep our homes warm and our electricity on. Imagine a world where energy was available to everyone. “I don’t care that they stole my idea. I care that they don’t have any of their own” – Nikola Tesla
Teaching the ancient wisdom of the merkaba would also eliminate our need for gasoline. I first learned about travel using the energy from the body from “The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life” by Drunvalo Melchizedek. The merkaba is also discussed in “The Thrive Movement” documentary. Harnessing this energy can move you anywhere in time and space. Gasoline would be free and unnecessary for travel. Think of all of the wars over gasoline. All of this would be solved in a highly-developed spiritual society.
Perfect Control- Earthly conflicts tend to stem from the need to feel in control. In our more recent history, control stems from the expense of other human beings, which has created conflict. Looking at our ancient wisdom, our divine heritage tells us that we are in perfect control of our own lives. Imagine a world where the need to control others for our agendas would be unnecessary. Through manifesting our personal desires to satisfy our needs in life, everyone would look inward for feeling in control of our lives instead of needing to control others out of insecurity. Wars would be a thing of the past.
We truly have a long way to go as a planet, but you have to start somewhere. The smallest lifestyle and behavioral changes add up to huge transformations over time. To turn this planet around, it truly has to start on the individual level. I will leave you with the wise words of Rumi. “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
Life does not always go as planned. In fact, the one thing that you can rely on in life is change. It is how you handle the changes you experience that keeps you in the flow of life. Being in the flow means that doors open for you. Signs flow to you. You are constantly focusing on the silver lining to attain the inner peace you seek. The world may seem crazy. The world may sometimes seem cold. This is why it is so important to look at those around you through the eyes of compassion.
I have been lied to, manipulated, raped, dragged through court, and really treated badly. It would have been easy to remain bitter, but I continuously look to the future, and know that my best days are always ahead of me, while also enjoying the ride. I have found that when I am happy, some people love to rain on my parade. I usually cut ties with people who rain on my parade, but sometimes, if its family, you have to learn how to live with it. Detaching yourself from the opinions of others is critical. My favorite mantra is to never live your life for people who are determined to misunderstanding you. I may always rub certain people the wrong way, but to not let it affect my peace of mind is truly bliss. Trusting that the Universe will support you is key to letting go.
I will never forget finding my soul mate. He walked through my door and he hit me like a ton of bricks. He stayed over and never left. I remember spending a lifetime with him already and cherished everyday we spent together in this life. The time we spent in each other’s presence truly felt like he loved me back to life. My spiritual gifts woke up. I had them as a child and got away from it. Everything came back to me in full swing, the strongest it had ever been. I am writing about this love story in great detail in my upcoming book “Bitch! A Love Story.”
When he proposed, it was in a pyramid hotel in Las Vegas on New Years Eve. It was magical. I was elated, running around town like I had found my happily ever after. The vultures came soon. Not a single person in my family was happy for us. I could not believe it. I had to schedule an appointment with a psychic because I am so humble that I never wanted to believe that the hostility from others was out of jealousy. I didn’t tell the psychic a word and she said all I needed to know.
When everyone was completely against our marriage, we chose to elope on a random Monday in January. We found this cute little wedding place an hour away. We arrived there to find the lady performing the ceremony in traditional Chinese garb. I was confused, but happy to say the least. Our ceremony consisted of her ringing bells and chimes in between vows and promises. He placed a ring on my finger and I felt a surge of energy go up and down our arms. We both looked into each other’s eyes, and I knew instantly he had felt it, too. It was pure… magic.
At the end of the ceremony, we signed the paperwork. The lady who performed the ceremony made a comment about how it was very nice that we decided to get married on Chinese New Year. We both looked at her confused. She then realized we didn’t plan it. She looked astonished. “Today is Chinese New Year and today the year turned from Julie’s sign’s year, to Kevin’s sign’s year, the year of the dragon. I thought you planned this.”
My mouth dropped. I didn’t know it then, but that day was the start of a series of synchronistic events that lead me here. That day was well before I knew much about numerology. Our anniversary date is 1.23.12. Ascending numbers is a direct sign from spirit guides that your thoughts and actions are progressive. That day was the first day I ever said “screw you” to those trying to talk me out of following my heart. I have been following my heart ever since.
It has been a roller coaster and my life is far from perfect. I can’t control other people’s free will choices, even my soul-mate’s. I have to be honest and say drugs had gotten in the way of our relationship for awhile. It has taken him quite some time to overcome this. This comes from masking a hurt, a wound, from everyone who doesn’t believe in him. I have a role in that. Its easy to let other people take you off the course. This is why it is so important to me to teach clean psychic awareness development. Things happen for a reason. I wouldn’t trade any of my experiences for the world. I am wiser, I am loved, and I love. I am better for it in every way. I feel more alive than I have ever been. I pray that everyone can find this kind of love and happiness in this lifetime. I truly have no regrets. Every experience has made me the person I am today. I truly believe that whatever is meant to be will find a way to happen. Follow your intuition, and most importantly, follow your heart always. Everyone has a divine life purpose waiting to be answered. Let your story unfold. Namaste.
Your body, in all its glory, is an energy vessel. When our chakras are optimally functioning, we can harness ourselves like a tool to reach the divine. We can conduct universal love energy throughout our bodies to heal ourselves and others, and to channel to gain knowledge and wisdom. I am convinced that in the future the need for books and standard education will become obsolete through individual and collective meditation practices. Many of our ancestors had quite extensive knowledge when considering the hypothesis testing in science only surfaced in the more recent day and age. While there may be many reasons for obtaining knowledge, one obvious reason is that our ancient ancestors lived more in tune with the natural rhythms of their bodies, nature, and the universe.
When we live in oneness with our higher self, miracles start happening through us and to us. I have found that being your authentic self at all times is like spreading magic wherever you go. When we live in the flow of all of life, synchronicity becomes the day to day norm instead of random rare occurrences. Confirmations from the universe are extremely useful and rewarding when shooting for an aim. For those who have never had this experience, the unintended drug sub-context tends to surface. Many people believe that psychic awareness is not personally attainable unless the experience is induced by psychedelics. A close friend of mine is someone who truly believed this. I have exhausted long conversations regarding the subject. I found myself on a journey to be an example that true psychic awareness can be developed through non-chemical means or mood-altering substances. In fact, when your body becomes sensitive enough, these substances could come in between you and clear divine guidance. In my experience, I have found that the drug-free path has lead to an abundance of long-lasting and unmistakable insights. My path is definitely not the one and only path, but I wanted to share what I found worked for me getting started.
