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.

Recently I had a client, in fact she's been asking for a reading every week with the same question. I don't keep notes as I prefer to rely on my guides to tell me what's happening around a client, anyway as I use tarot cards to begin a reading I began laying them out and every time the same cards turn up and of course I have to give her the same answer, the situation is just the same and the answer is just the same that she will have to be patient for she will get her wish but we are bound by divine timing.
Time and time I hear from clients, when will it happen? can you give me a time? Sometimes I am lucky and I am given dates and timings but more often that not I am just told Divine Timing. It's not a cop out to give to the impatient but firstly there are no clocks nor is there a sense of time as we know it in the spirit realms and secondly it takes time to manifest the optimal times for the best result.

If you want to experience more harmony, happiness and effortless manifestation of your desires in life, you have to let go of all resistance towards whatever that comes your way. The reason why we fight against what comes is because we think that we are being kept from having our way. But the truth is whatever that happens is exactly what is meant to be, and it is all part of the process of the manifestation of our desires. Everything is happening in divine timing and we can flow if we do not limit ourselves.

Sometimes you were expecting to meet someone on a certain day but when that day comes, the person cannot meet you for some valid reason. Flow with it and meet that person on another day. The reason why you might be resisting change of events is because you have been anticipating it and thinking a lot about it. But when it doesn’t happen at the expected time, you don’t know what to do in place of it because you don’t feel like doing anything else other than that which you already had in mind.

If something doesn’t happen at the expect time in the expected way, it means it’s going to happen at a better timing in a better way. Don’t resist what is happening but instead focus on doing something else. You will discover things gone a much better way after the whole event has passed. You did something important which enhanced the meeting with the person that would not have happened otherwise. Hence it is better not to resist what is happening when it isn’t necessary, but to just go with  the flow.

Just know everything happens at the RIGHT TIME AND THE BEST POSSIBLE TIME and only spirit knows this and we have to learn to trust, they do know what is best for us because spirit love us. Spirit have the ability to know what is ahead and any complications so they decide what is the best time to manifest our wishes. If we were to rush things before the optimum conditions were reached it could prevent our wishes manifesting, this is why we need to trust and believe in Divine timing.

The story from the "DAILY MAIL" below is about another good excuse to eat chocolate of course we are referring to dark chocolate which contains a good supply of iron and rich in those beneficial antioxidants Flavonoids

Dark chocolate could make walking easier for the elderly: Eating a bar can help patients with artery problems in their legs.
Patients with Peripheral artery disease, which affects leg arteries, tested twenty people aged 60 to 78 could walk better after eating dark chocolate

Researchers found elderly people with artery problems in their legs could walk a little longer after eating dark chocolate

For most of us dark chocolate is just a tasty treat – but for the elderly it could also help them to walk, according to a study.
Researchers found elderly people with artery problems in their legs could walk a little longer after eating dark chocolate.
Peripheral artery disease, or PAD, is a cardiovascular disease most commonly affecting the arteries of the legs and is strongly associated with age, with high rates in over-70s.
Reduced blood flow can cause pain, cramping or fatigue in the legs or hips while walking.
In a pilot study of patients with PAD, 14 men and six women aged from 60 to 78 increased their ability to walk unassisted after eating dark chocolate. 
On separate days, they were tested on a treadmill once in the morning and again after eating a 40g bar of dark or milk chocolate.
After the dark chocolate they walked on average 39 feet further and 17 seconds longer than earlier in the day. There was no improvement after eating milk chocolate.
The researchers, whose findings were published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, suggest that compounds found in cocoa – polyphenols – may reduce oxidative stress and improve blood flow in peripheral arteries.improve arteries’ blood flow.
The dark chocolate in the study had 85 per cent cocoa so was rich in polyphenols. The milk chocolate had less than 30 per cent cocoa.
The researchers said that a larger study with long-term consumption is now needed to confirm the improvements.
    The improvements were modest. However, the benefit of dark chocolate polyphenols is 'of potential relevance for the quality of life of these patients,' according to the study’s co-author Doctor Lorenzo Loffredo, assistant professor at the Sapienza University of Rome in Italy.
    Levels of nitric oxide - a gas linked to improved blood flow - were higher when participants ate dark chocolate. Other biochemical signs of oxidative stress were also lower. 
    Based on these observations and other laboratory experiments, the researchers suggest that the higher nitric oxide levels may be responsible for dilating peripheral arteries and improving walking independence. 
    Doctor Francesco Violi, study senior author and professor of internal medicine at the Sapienza University of Rome, said: 'Polyphenol-rich nutrients could represent a new therapeutic strategy to counteract cardiovascular complications.'
    In the pilot study of those with Peripheral artery disease, 14 men and six women aged 60 to 78 increased their ability to walk unassisted after eating dark chocolate

    The researchers said the improvements linked to these compounds in dark chocolate need to be confirmed in a larger study involving long-term consumption. 
    American Heart Association spokesman Dr Mark Creager said that it’s far too early to recommend polyphenols or dark chocolate for cardiovascular health.
    He said: “Other investigations have shown that polyphenols including those in dark chocolate may improve blood vessel function. 
    “But this study is extremely preliminary and I think everyone needs to be cautious when interpreting the findings. 
    “We know from other studies of antioxidants - vitamin C and vitamin E for example - that these interventions have not gone on to show improvement in cardiovascular health.”
    Other polyphenol-rich foods include cloves, dried peppermint, celery seed, capers and hazelnuts.

    In case you are not aware I have a few websites the one below is my main site for excerpts of my books and writing.




    Think of me once and a while
    When you feel down, hopefully I’ll make you smile
    I’d like to think you are doing just fine
    Even though it’s been such a long time

    When you’re sad and you’re all alone
    You’re always thought of you’re never on your own
    For promises I make I don’t break
    My loyalty is forever for the promises I make

    Unconditional love means loyalty guaranteed
    It’s based on giving irrespective of one’s need
    It’s selfless and non judgemental
    Forgiving and truly eternal

    It matters not what you’ve done 
    And the past is long but gone
    But what dwells in your heart now is important
    Let mistakes heal and live in the moment

    I hope I touched your soul
    And I know time has taken it’s toll
    All I ask is once in a while think of me
    For I loved you unconditionally, enough to let you fly free

    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.
