I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

THE TRUE MEANING OF HOLISTIC




I get a bit tired seeing the word “Holistic” used incorrectly. Often it is used merely to treat a disorder where unlike conventional medicine treats one ailment/disorder, it looks at the patient’s whole symptoms it may even take into account, their emotional/mental state but that is as far as it goes so to put the record straight Holistic medicine is a term used to describe therapies that attempt to treat the patient as a whole person. That is, instead of treating an illness, as in orthodox allopathic medicine, holistic medicine looks at an individual's overall physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional wellbeing before recommending treatment.

An important part of treating someone “Holistically” is treating him/her spiritually as you cannot claim to treat someone holistically without the spiritual aspect. When I mention spiritually I am not talking about a specific religion or set of beliefs, for every religion mentions the spiritual side of us and in holistic therapies, we are mind, body and spirit, essentially we are spirit within a human body. If we tackle this part of us we will achieve inner harmony for dis-harmony and dis-ease begins in the very essence of us “The Spirit”.

THANK YOU NINA FOR YOUR ARTICLE ON ME


Interview with Astrid Brown, Author of ‘A Psychic Affair’

Written by professional psychic/medium, Astrid Brown, ‘A Psychic Affair’ shares the intense, emotive romance between two people. It’s as intimate and uplifting as any other relationship, except for one thing – it’s conducted psychically. It’s a romance novel unlike anything else on the market! 

Which means that I was absolutely intrigued, therefore I’ve felt the need to ask Astrid a few questions about the book, challenges of being a psychic/medium & love in general. Enjoy!

1. When did you discover your psychic abilities?

“I’ve had these abilities since birth, my earliest recalls were when I was a baby and I could see lower elementals when I was in my cot. I also remember playing with spirit children before I was school age, I might add my 3 daughters and my grandchildren also have this ability.”

2. What prompted you to write ‘A Psychic Affair?’

” It is based on true experiences plus I wanted to get across how wonderful the spirit world is and how our guides and mentors are there to help us get through the most turbulent times in our lives and it’s not there to frighten us. We are all capable of becoming psychic, not mediumship, that’s gifted or acquired, and that we can develop our psychic abilities if we chose to do so.”

3. What’s the main takeaway, what should the reader understand?

“I want to get across how wonderful the spirit world is and that only our psychical body dies, we live eternally and most importantly never underestimate the powers of the spirit world and the universe and we can influence outcomes. This is the whole purpose of spell work, for every time we think we create thought forms these are thoughts but these thoughts create an energy, and it’s this energy that creates an effect within the universe (it’s all in the book). A spell is just a concentrated thought form. However, we have to respect Universal law ‘like attracts like’ so if you are thinking evil thoughts you will attract negativity back to yourself, so it’s important to always work in the light and be positive.”

4. Being a psychic/medium, what is the most challenging part?

“The challenging part is trying to get across I’m not a fortune teller, I can’t give detailed and complete accurate outcomes as we are subject to the laws of the Universe and we ourselves are responsible for our destiny. We have a plan before we are incarnated, we make this plan as we ourselves want to experience certain lessons in each incarnation. However, that plan is wiped from our conscious mind, it’s still there within our soul, our intuition, and subconscious mind and we are given ‘free will’ so it’s up to us as individuals if we chose to follow our plan. The reason the plan is wiped from our conscious mind is if we knew what was going to happen in our lives we would likely try and avoid the outcomes. The other part that affects our future is ‘Divine timing’ there is no sense of time in the spirit realms, time and clocks don’t exist and when the Universe thinks it’s the right time it will happen only then. As a medium (not a psychic they work on lower energies) I can communicate with spirit and ask them what will happen, however, they will only tell me if it has no influence on our life plan. Nor can I conjure up a spirit, I can ask for them to come forward and it’s up to them and I certainly can’t ask a certain deceased person to talk to me. This was the whole reason for me writing this book and others and for beginning my website, to explain why and how we work.”

5. What do you believe is a true definition of love?

The true definition of true love is, it comes without any judgment or preconditions and you want the other person to be happy even if that is detrimental to you. It’s always putting whom you love first. A quote from the book explains
“It had been a difficult time, if I had any sense I would have walked away. I could not make rhyme or reason why I loved this man. I just knew I did. I knew this was a different kind of love, not the physical kind that begins with lust but it really was on a deeper level, and this was spiritual love where you wanted a kindred spirit to be happy. Where you want the best for them so much so you will do anything to see them smile. It is the kind of love a mother has for her child, the kind of love one sibling has for another, for a best friend and for a lover all wrapped up and bound in one package. It’s very unselfish, non-judgmental, no conditions attached, no hidden agendas, totally unconditional love: this is spiritual love”.

BOOK NEWS 'ALEXA'S STORY' A NOVELETTE





List Price: $5.50
5" x 8" (12.7 x 20.32 cm) 

A light-hearted Novelette with a dash of erotica. Alexa debated with herself trying to reason why she had fallen for Andreas, she wasn’t even sure what he did for a living, all he told her was that he worked for the government, but doing what? He couldn’t have just been some government clerk, he must earn more than a clerk’s wages, for he was always well dressed and he seemed highly educated. Perhaps he worked higher up in government and when she did ask he always skilfully changed the subject. Just who was Andreas?

BOOK REVIEW OF MY NOVEL 'A PSYCHIC AFFAIR'


This is a review of my novel by misanthropester.com The review on site


cover54 b

A PSYCHIC AFFAIR 
ASTRID BROWN 
THORNED ROSE PUBLICATIONS, 2ND ED.
2018 

♦♦♦ 
3 STARS


Astrid Brown is a professional psychic medium and has used her experience as a touchstone to introduce readers to the details of ‘mediumship’ and how one navigates the psychic realm in real life. Brown chooses to reach readers through writing a paranormal romance, A Psychic Affair, where her characters become psychically connected developing an intimate relationship. 
There are millions of couples like Maryann and John, two persons who don’t live near each other yet are conducting a life deeply engaged with each other. For man and most of us, this takes the form of relationships conducted online or via social media. Brown takes this notion a step further showing how it can happen without a device but with ones mind. The story of this psychically conducted affair gives readers a window into understanding just what kinds of psychic connection there are and how they function. 
In fact, this is how Brown opens her book by giving us Maryann as a teacher who has to negotiate a standard curriculum and the ever present inquiry of her students into her mediumship. In this way, Brown’s novel is also part guide book, which the author herself states as a necessary aside. A Psychic Affair will serve as an introduction of sorts for those readers curious about the paranormal. For skeptics or casual readers, it is unlikely there will be much substance here of note. Yet like the students Maryann teaches early on in the novel, these kind of readers may be surprised if they continue on or decide to put for the effort, “developing psychically is a choice of our own choosing, for we do have free will.” Maryann like Brown is under no obligation to prove to readers anything but as she shows in the novel, she believes she can at any time. 
Readers who long for a different kind of romance and intrigued by paranormal practices will find A Psychic Affair to be subtly endearing and familiar. The relationship of the novel is really no different than many ordinary relationships. There is a time of wariness, of learning about each other, of tension while deciding whether or not to trust, the consultation with friends, and commitment or consummation. What is perhaps the most interesting relationship of the novel is less the long distance relationship and more the one Maryann develops with her student Annie. It is in these interaction readers see an organic explanation of the kind of practices Brown is most interested in.
A Psychic Affair mixes different styles giving us narrative sections of transcriptions of characters’ Instant Messaging, Brown’s own poetry on being psychic between chapters as well as peppered throughout, and italicized portions written in a prose similar to instruction manuals to ground readers in the details and variety paranormal activities. Readers will find Brown’s novel accessible as its messages and experiences can be incorporate into their own understandings of the world.

BISAC: Fiction / Romance / Paranormal

Maryann and John live thousands of miles apart on different continents, they have never met, this does not stop them having an intimate relationship. What is different about this relationship is that it's conducted psychically. 

To the reader this book may seem more of “A Psychic Manual” than a novel, especially so to readers who have no experience in psychic phenomena, but in order to understand what went on between the characters I felt I had to explain how the phenomena occurred, as this phenomena can actually happen in real life and not purely in fiction. I do hope the explanations throughout the story will not be irritating to you as this was not my intention and you will find these explanations in italics. You are welcome to skip through these italic sections though I hope you won’t as these are an important part of the story.

"AN ANGEL'S FEATHER" MY LATEST BOOK (EXCERPT)


AVAILABLE AMAZON WORLDWIDE OTHER OUTLETS TO COME

CHAPTER ONE

LIFE IS A LESSON

As I said before, we learn through making mistakes and believe me I’ve made lots, every medium has a story to tell and it will be a life of ups and downs but none of us would change any of it. When we go through hard times it doesn’t feel like this but when you look back on your life you will see your life like a jigsaw, how one part had to happen to create another aspect, how each part came together like pieces of a jigsaw. You will realize just how much you have learned about life and you will come to accept these challenges we all face and it does in a way bring contentment.

I can’t speak for all mediums but I can share my experiences and from this you will start to understand what life is about.

What we all have in common as well as some tough times is a sensitivity; people will say you are too sensitive as it’s a bad thing to be, but to be a medium it’s a wonderful thing to be. Being sensitive enables us to tune into spirit and to how people are feeling

we pick up atmospheres, know when something is not right and can understand how others feel. Chances are you’ve been like this from birth, your parents may have labeled you as being highly strung and or you may have cried a lot as a baby. This will have driven your parents to distraction at the time, we are often clingy children and pick up the moods of how our parents and siblings feel and if they feel unhappy and or stressed we will too. Trouble is at such a young age babies are not able to convey how they feel, and just know they are sad and unable to differentiate between what are their feelings and those of others.

Babies are naturally sensitive after all they have just recently been incarnated from spirit so they haven’t quite lost that memory of the spirit realms. It’s not uncommon to find babies staring at something you cannot see, as they haven’t yet completed the full transition to life on earth.

However this does not mean every baby has the ability to become a medium for through day-to-day living gradually memories of the other side are lost. Parents will tell you it’s your imagination and the majority will forget. Those who are destined to become mediums they will not, that sensitivity will never leave us and it’s this sensitivity that can make us appear odd, like we feel different and more often than not our peer groups will notice. Children can be very cruel and it’s not unusual for the sensitive child to become the victim of bullies precisely because we are different.

The sensitive child has a very active imagination, this is no bad thing it leads to creativity and deep thinking and it’s this thoughtfulness that leads to world changes and development. If you have a sensitive child support and be proud of them for they will make a difference to others’ lives in the world as they grow up. 

Our souls are at different development levels with some being older souls than others and the older the soul the more spiritual you will be. This is because older souls have experienced more incarnations (lifetimes) so have much more experience of different challenges in these lifetimes, they have learned a lot, been to earth’s classroom a lot more so are more spiritually educated.

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
