Announcing PsychKicks©, a New Feature Starting June 21, 2017

Psych yourself up with like-minded sidekicks, exploring the symbols all around us—together.

We are all psychic whether we realize it or not. How much more fun would it be to explore the symbols all around us with each other as sidekicks?  Or psychkicks?

My Cosmic Tractor Beam has sent me some new coordinates! I’m starting a new feature, a weekly kick-start for mind and spirit featuring an eclectic use of metaphysical tools. While I’m now retired from one-on-one consultations, for many years my Inner Growth Work practice included astrology, tarot, dreamwork and flower essences and any other tools that waved hello and said, “Use me.” Combined with the Radical Virgo characteristic of reducing cosmic downloads to their most helpful nuggets for growth and healing, I’m hoping to start your week in a way that fires up your mind and psyche to help kick off a good week from the get-go. Often the kick will the kind that brings laughter. And you’re invited to comment or contribute. That’s what psychkicks on the journey do.


The usual post day will be Mondays except for the launch post on June 21. Psych-Kicks© may ultimately move to more frequent posts and its own domain.

What to Expect

Here’s a live demo! While writing this on June 2, I was inspired draw an Angel Card for this sample message. I got Efficiency.

After telling you my source, which could be anything from astrology to other oracles or a recent synchronicity, I’ll go inward to consult my intuition about what the universe wants to convey to us. Sometimes I’ll share quotes or bits of others’ wisdom on the topic, too.

So here goes:


We all need a certain amount of efficiency to make our lives work. Otherwise, we get distracted with side-trips that delay getting to our goals—or even fall into time traps that use up minutes, hours, days or more by “looking busy” even if only to ourselves. Those time traps are blocks of living that you might want to put to better use: thinking things through, laughing, playing or relaxing. Worse, time traps don’t help you get to where you’re going.

True efficiency requires that you set aside time at least every month to look at the big picture of your life. This living portrait of your existence is dynamic, not set in stone. New data or new insights may shift your focus, even your goal.

We are so easily fooled by short-term goals. We’re like politicians only seeing an issue in the timeframe between now until the next election. Think of the short-term goals as building blocks to the Big Picture. But what if you haven’t sufficiently seen the structure and the possibilities of the longer view? You might have an inkling of what you want somewhere inside you, but if you haven’t sufficiently rolled around all the possible paths and identified your true desires, you might just be building the wrong structure. Instead of a seaside condo, you might wake up in the middle of a steel office building. Or God backwards forbid, a dog house.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.  ~ Peter Drucker

Recently I struggled with hating to postpone a big project. My whole body and being were telling me it wasn’t the right time. On reflection I realized I was worrying more about others’ thinking I was crazy to take so long to get to it—and that I was only seeing the advantages of doing the project sooner than later. Several stumbling blocks to doing it more immediately appeared to expose the faster track as foolhardy. Confirmation by the universe helped me surrender to divine timing, and once I did, I could see huge advantages in waiting.

My friend Janet said something really cool about my struggle. She said a choice between good and bad is easy, but choices between two good options are much harder. Thanks to learning over the years to read cosmic signals, I had the eyes to see. I know for sure which of the two good choices to pursue …

… unless or until my Big Picture Review shows me otherwise.

What does pondering efficiency do for you?

(Such a Virgo word.)
