There was a time not that long ago that I couldn't tell you my favorite things. I couldn't share with you my hobbies or how I enjoyed my free time.
I didn't know the characteristics of myself that made me special,
or the things that made me, me.
I was merely getting by, doing all of the things I was told I should be doing, and giving all my energy and love away to everyone around me.
I spent 30 years being this person, and yet I was total stranger to myself.
My cup was empty.
Looking back now, those sad and lonely times were the catalyst to my evolution, which then led me down the path of spiritual and personal development and healing.
To make a long story short, I started a daily meditation practice which then led me down the path to psychic and mediumship development. I started offering psychic and mediumship readings back in 2018 and then started offering psychic and mediumship development classes.
I found my purpose in showing...
I was in the Young Adult Graphic Novels section of Barnes & Noble picking up some books for Christmas for my young boys when I received an extremely passive aggressive message.
The overall tone was very demeaning and disrespectful and my human felt attacked and disrespected. But as I stood in the middle of the aisle, I took a moment to close my eyes, take a deep breath, and envision roots making their way down to allow me to become rooted and grounded in the moment.
I'm not a confrontational person. I become very uncomfortable when I feel attacked and in my teen years and early twenties, I would have attacked back in a cold, aloof way with the intention of hurting the other person.
But I've grown up since then.
When I responded, I envisioned my hurt human self and kindly moved her to the side. I didn't act from a state of heightened...
Like most people, I used to feel superior over others. Whether it was someone of a lesser moral compass, a spider that was inhabiting my home, or someone whom our beliefs and values were not copesthetic; I judged. I created an opinion about this person or thing and then decided that we were not equal and that I was superior. Judgement is natural. Whether you believe yourself to be a judgmental being or not – you judge. Our egos have made it this way. Just like how we categorize ourselves with labels, we do the same thing to others.
We call a woman who wears tight dresses and has an active sex life a slut.
We call a father who does not pay child support and does not see his children a dead-beat dad.
We a call a child who behaves and listens to adults a good kid.
We a call a mother who takes care of her children and has patience a good mom.
Whether the label be positive or negative,...
As much as I love the Queen B, her hit single “ego” got the concept and definition of ego totally wrong. When we think ego, we think arrogance conceit. This is just an incredibly small portion of what the ego is.
The ego is a collection of ideas we carry around.
I am what I have
I am what I do
I am my reputation
I am separate from everybody else
I am separate from god
“Ego” is the aspects of yourself that you consider to be “you.” A perfect example of this is a brief self-inquiry assessment.
Who are you? I’m Erica.
Who is Erica? Erica is a female, she is a wife, and she is a mother.
Did Erica exist before she become a wife and mother? Well.. Yes.
So then who were you before you were a wife and mother? I was Erica.
Who is Erica? She is me.
Who is me? I’m Erica. I am me.
Well, that cannot be, because I am ME too.
Are we both ME? Well you are me for you and I am me for me.
Who is me? I...
