I recently sat down with Erin-Ashley Kerti to talk about what it takes to go pro at being a psychic. She related to me the story of how she came to her gifts reluctantly, having grown up in a very skeptical and scientific family. An undeniable experience led her to start exploring the visions she had been having.
We discussed whether everyone has psychic gifts (spoiler: they do), and her recommendations for budding psychics who want to hone their skills.
The approach Erin-Ashley takes will surprise you, her advice: have fun!
Erin-Ashley gave me the low down on the typical time frame it takes to develop your gifts enough to start charging for them, and why it is good for the world if more people start owning their gifts.
She also gave me her energy forecast for the next 5 years, and emphasized the importance of developing coping strategies so that you can still get clear messages during tumultuous times.
We ended our interview with a brief discussion of ethics.
In this episode I take you inside the Sacred Wheel Immersion for a look at our Yule class. In this class we discuss some of the ancient pagan origins of modern Christmas Traditions. We dive into the mythology behind the Christmas tree, the use of candles and light this time of year, and some of the myth and legend behind the figure of Santa Clause. We also discuss the Omen Days, or a period of time that is rich for divination this time of year. Then we finish up with a discussion of how you can repurpose some rituals and practices this time of year to leave you feeling more connected to the earth, more peaceful and reap the gifts of the abundant darkness.
Here are the links discussed in the class.
