How You Can Help People in Need During the Holidays

 

Decorations and lights are cheering up our homes and lining our streets, reminding us the holiday season is here. Many of us are so consumed with the rush for last-minute gifts and holiday parties, that we may forget there is suffering all around us. Our friends, family, and loved ones may be hurting in ways that we can’t or don’t know how to help.

Perhaps they have lost a loved one. Maybe they need assistance healing a painful past, or seek guidance and assurance for what they perceive to be an uncertain future. More often than not, for those of us suffering, the holidays can be particularly painful.

What’s the best gift I can get for someone who is suffering or grieving this holiday season?

What those in need likely wish for most is emotional support, serenity, and comfort. Not an easy thing to shop for, is it? It’s also very unlikely you’ll be able to find it in a store. Your interest is the best gift you can give anyone. Your love and affection can work miracles.

But, then again, it’s such a crazy busy time of year. What happens when you may not be able to lend them an ear, or be a shoulder to cry on?  Your attention is divided in ten different directions. You may not know how to support them. Sometimes, we’re not great listeners, despite our best intentions, and we may not be able to give those we love the answers or comfort they seek.

 Can a psychic help?

I’m a Boston psychic and medium who has been honing my gifts and abilities over the last three decades. I have assisted hundreds of people in need, providing spiritual guidance and communicating with those who’ve crossed over so those who love them and miss them dearly can achieve the emotional comfort or closure they need.

For those of us looking for answers or guidance about the future, I’m able to communicate with guardian angels who guide us through life, as well as connect a person to their own intuitive abilities, so that they can feel more certain of, and confident in, their decisions. 

A gift certificate for a reading by Boston’s best psychic medium might be the best present possible for suffering. It can be hard for us to see a sliver of light beyond the brick wall that we all face at one time or another in our lives. This season, give those in need that light, that hope, that comfort, and that peace.

Boston’s Best Psychic: Connecting With Lost Loved Ones This Holiday Season

 

The holidays are a time for joy, cheer, and precious moments spent with family and friends. Yet for many of us, this time of year may also bring about sadness and longing for our loved ones who have passed on.

Perhaps you are grieving your first holiday spent without the departed. Or maybe the season simply brings back fond memories for you. It’s also possible, some of us feel melancholic without really looking inward and knowing the reasons why.

If you seek answers, guidance, or comfort from those who have touched your life and are no longer with us, you may want to consider a psychic medium reading to reach out to them.

Can you communicate with someone who has passed?

Our souls survive our bodily deaths. And while I believe we all have an ability to receive messages from those who have passed to the Other Side, not all of us are in tune with the higher vibrations of the spirit world to do so, or to communicate effectively with them.

How Boston’s best psychic medium can help

I have been giving readings for several decades. I act as a bridge between the spirit world and our day-to-day world, and am able to deliver messages from those who have passed on, to those who are in the physical world. This is my ability, my gift, and I have honed it so that I can share it with others.

Many of the spirits close to us want to let us know that they love us, are with us, and will always be with us. This knowledge can provide so much comfort for those they have left in this world.

You probably have someone very particular in mind that you wish to hear from this holiday season. While I can’t guarantee this spirit will show up, I suggest that before your reading, you set your intentions and call out to them. Let them know you’d like to talk to them, perhaps even sit down and write them a letter.

The holidays are a very spiritual time of year, and the overarching message is one of love. Love for the self, love for others, and love for that which we believe in. Reach out to your loved ones – both those in the physical world, and the beyond – this holiday season.

Managing Your Holiday Anxiety: 4 Self-Care Strategies

 

The holidays allow us to pause and truly take time to connect with our families, friends, and loved ones. However, for many of us, it can also mean a great deal of anxiety that stems from myriad sources, such as:

-having to prepare for and host a large holiday party;

-the stressors of financially overextending ourselves on gifts;

-long-distance travel by way of plane, train, or automobile; or

-having to endure those family members that we may truly love, but don’t particularly like or enjoy.

And these are just a few of the reasons that we feel more nervous during this merriest of seasons.

HOW TO MANAGE HOLIDAY ANXIETY

Below are four tips to help you manage this anxiety.

Tip #1: Get sufficient sleep.

The holidays tend to take you out of your regular routine. You and/or your family may not have to get up early to go to work or school, but that doesn’t mean you have to throw your schedule out the window, sleep in until noon, and stay up late. It’s important to get enough sleep every night. Research suggests that sleep deprivation can actually cause more anxiety. So try to stick as much as possible to a regular schedule and get enough sleep so you can recharge your brain, improve your focus, and elevate your mood.

Tip #2: Eat as healthily as possible.

At this time of year, we’re surrounded by candies, chocolates, cakes, and more! As much as possible, try not to overindulge on the sweet treats. While sugar doesn’t cause anxiety, it can make your symptoms worse. Eat balanced meals, and perhaps a small sweet after dinner. This will avoid the rush of energy and sugar crash you get when you go straight to dessert on an empty stomach.

Tip #3: Don’t stop exercising.

If physical activity is a part of your usual routine, it’s important you stick to it during the holiday season. It’s very easy decide to treat yourself by taking a day or week off from the gym. But physical activity works as an excellent anxiety management tool. It takes your mind off your frustrations, and releases mood-enhancing endorphins.

Tip #4: Take a few minutes every day to meditate.

Not only should you foster a healthy body, but you should also foster a healthy mind. One great way to combat and relieve the holiday jitters is to indulge in just a few minutes of meditation every day. Not only will it decrease any depression you may be experiencing, but it has been proven to make people more resilient to stress, reduce stress levels, and relieve emotional pain, all of which will make you much more compassionate to those around you.

So breathe deeply, be present, tune into your body, and remember during those tough anxiety-riddled moments that we all want the same thing. If you’re feeling hurt by a family member, understand that they, like you, are doing the best they can. Pause to center yourself (leave the room if you have to), clear your mind of the overwhelm, and let the feelings and emotions pass through you.

HOW BOSTON’S BEST PSYCHIC MEDIUM CAN HELP YOU WITH YOUR ANXIETY

I believe that only when we change our thought patterns, can we change our moods and allow ourselves to heal, physically and spiritually. Our thoughts are powerful and have significant effects on our minds, hearts, and bodies. Guided meditation is an excellent way to relieve stress, both the acute (during the holiday season) and the chronic (if you suffer from it every day of your life).

I have been giving psychic intuitive sessions for nearly 30 years, and have helped multiple clients open themselves to mindfulness and broaden their understanding of the importance of inner peace in what can sometimes be a chaotic world. I help others understand where their anxiety comes from, how to let it go and not let it impact them, and how to move toward healing.

Gratitude and Giving Yourself the Gift of Meditation

 

“Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

As Thanksgiving nears, you might wish to take time to give thanks for even the little things in your life that you are grateful for. Expressing gratitude has the ability to shift your mindset, “unsticking” you from negative thoughts or patterns. When you open your eyes and acknowledge all the good that you have been blessed with, you invite even more of the same into your life by believing that you are worthy and deserving of good things.

Bit by bit, this practice of being thankful connects you with your higher self, and attracts abundance into your life. In so doing, not only will you create a small, beautiful, and positive ripple in your own world, and in those of the lives you touch, but you lift the vibration of our entire planet.

How to heal negative emotions

A large part of being able to receive and feel worthy of good things is healing negative emotions and patterns that we have accumulated in our lifetimes. Only when you free these channels and open yourself to more positive energy can the good flow in. It’s much like a house cleansing ritual. You need to clear away the negative residual energy and balance the environment, in order to allow for positive energy to come in.

We all experience challenges in our lives, but we must not let them negatively affect our future. If you don’t address these issues, and learn from them, you may find yourself repeating mistakes and getting involved in bad relationships, or making poor decisions over and over.

We must learn from these obstacles, rise above them, and ask the universe for help. What lessons are we being taught? What do we need to learn to move forward? Our universe will respond.

Advice from Boston’s Best Psychic

As a Boston Psychic Medium, I am able to use meditation to “tune in” to the spiritual world and give my clients intuitive readings. I set my intentions for the highest and best good of my clients, seek out protection from spirit guides, and open myself up to receive information from your loved ones lost.

This Thanksgiving, be kind to yourself, and give yourself the gift of meditation. We all have the human desire to connect with the spiritual, and I am able to assist those individuals who do not have intuitive abilities and cannot do this on their own. If you need help moving forward, give yourself the most magnificent gift you possibly can this Thanksgiving: The gift of gratitude.

I hope that you have a very Happy Thanksgiving and that you will be surrounded by your family and friends. 

 

The Spirits of Charlestown Haunted Historical Ghost Tours

I returned from England on Monday of Halloween week very looking forward to conducting this year’s Spirits of Charlestown Historical Ghost Tours. Unfortunately, between the election and a serious bout with the flu, I haven’t had a chance to post anything until now. So, though it’s two weeks late, here’s a quick update and a few pictures from our 2016 tours.

The Spirits of Charlestown Give A Unique Story Giving Voice To The Voiceless

I feel blessed that the Spirits of Charlestown ghost tours are popular and at least 20 people per night took the tour.  I’m usually a little fearful that the tours aren’t scary enough. We cover a lot of history and what spirits have to say about what they experienced is more gruesome than scary.  I used to think I wanted to live back then until their stories changed my mind. 

This year I experimented with, “on the spot” spirit communication to see if the historic spirits I talk about on the tour would come back and tell us more. Coincidentally, (we know there is no such thing as coincidence) on each tour one attendee would ask if the spirits ever came back. On the final tour of the season, when we were gathered at John Harvard Mall, that question came up again. I said, “Let me check in with them,”.Almost Immediately, a discarnate voice whispered in my ear, “Thank you! This is exactly what we wanted! To get your interest in our stories.” 

Since all the indications are that the spirits want to participate in the tours, this Boston psychic medium won’t be tentative next year to ask the spirits to join us. The attendees are certainly curious! Perhaps we’ll get the spirits to reveal even more!
