Hello! thank you for finding and reading my post! I have met a new guide I call her “Sharlene”. I have asked for a psychic teacher to help guide me, and although I was expecting a physical person to cross paths with me, a few days ago in meditation I found myself in a classroom. I didn’t notice other people in the classroom, and this lady had a skirt suit with blond hair in her 50’s. As always I question myself if I am hallucinating or not and have been since I opened up in abilities. So I write my conversations down, and then I don’t judge or question, and share it, that if it resonates with others and helps them in any way, then at least writing it made a difference.

I asked Sharlene why her, and why not my angel Shaban or my other guides who I’ve already met. Apparently she has lived as a medium on earth so she would be most helpful, and she was picked by my guides to help, so in a way she has become my guide. I felt that she also helps others and does not work solely with me, so I guess anyone can call on her for help too! I also felt like she is a guide who is here temporarily.

I have written 2 other channels, and each one I seemed to get one lesson. I asked if there was homework- there is none! LOL! Maybe I will start writing what I get and maybe it will help others in their development.

So today’s channel which I would never have expected… was about my sugar addiction! I love sugar and desserts, and even when I was choosing the main image for this article, browsing all the sweets and desserts, I knew it was right. Gosh I just love french macaroons…I had the craving feelings, and my mouth was watering and I kept thinking about the Turtles chocolate I have in my pantry! Can you believe it, just when I wrote about sugar being bad, am I thinking about sugar and how to get my fix! The guides are probably doing so many facepalms right now! Oh well, everyone has their journey, and this is mine with sugar. I hope others can benefit from this channel, if they too are struggling to connect but didn’t realize sugar was maybe affecting the connection with their Guides.




How Sugar Affects Psychic Abilities

  • What is today’s lesson?

Sugar! Sugar is a chemical that disrupts your balance of psychic ability. It has addictive tendencies that would be very difficult for someone to quit. When you know you are addicted to something, you would hesitate to no longer have this substance in your life. For everyone, the addiction is different. But for you, your addiction is sugar. This creates a fogginess to your abilities and is not wise to do readings when you have consumed too much sugar. It will warp your readings and you may give incorrect information. We suggest that you start to do another sugar detox and you will notice a difference with your abilities and your overall well being.

  • Yes, it seems like lately I’ve been going on the deep end having a lot of sweets lately

It is normal and easy to fall back into the desire for sugar. Notice that when you cut sugar from your diet, you do not have the additive tendencies or desires to have it. Now that you have consumed much sugar for days, the addition has come back. Now you have cravings that will be difficult for you to stop.

  • How can others deal with this type of addition?

There are many things that people are addicted to. If they pause for a moment and see that they are doing in excess of a certain type of activity, or consume a certain substance that they feel they are losing control over, they may need to ask themselves why and what is this block stopping them from achieving a certain goal. They fill a void of emotion and soul. This could be weight loss, this could be a distraction to deal with an emotional issue, this could be also stopping people from living life in a way. Once you are aware of these unconscious actions, can they start to create a new pattern and will disperse the block, and they will continue on the path they are set out to do in this lifetime. There are many blocks for each person created as a lesson for themselves to overcome obstacles, and not to hinder them. They will realize their greatness in time.

  • Ok thank you, now that I think of it I seem to have many blocks- weight, sometimes a shopaholic, sugar.

Yes this is all obstacles for you to overcome, and we are here to help and guide you. You have free will, so when you are ready, we are here to help you. And there is no punishment from not changing. This is your lesson and you will deal with them all in time, as with all the others who are struggling too.

  • Well, this is a strange psychic lesson, this was one of the last things I thought I would get as a lesson!

It was the lesson that you needed to know first. This is a basic lesson of eating better to raise your vibration, and will be easier to meet ours. The denser foods will lower your vibration, and you will not be able to vibrate high enough to connect and hear messages.

  • OK I can see how that’s important! LOL! Thanks so much Sharlene

We are only here to help and serve you all. We thank you for taking the time today to speak with us Marie. We hope that this helps others find the connection with us also. We are only a thought away.


As blunt as a rusty knife, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! LOL! I hope this helped some of you or found this article amusing! Trust me I question most of the things I get as messages, but it seems and feels like I need to hear it, and learn it. If you have any comments on this article, questions on channeling, or any other topics of spirituality, I’d be happy to hear from you! We’re all in this together!

5 Things That Helped me Develop Psychically


Hi there! Thank you for finding my post!

Once again I find that so much time goes by between articles! I have been receiving some questions on development, and I haven’t found the time to post them! But I should make the time because I feel it will help others who find it.

Someone had asked me a great question on the major things that helped me develop and made an impact on heightening my psychic abilities. Mind you, at the present time, my abilities are undergoing yet another transition, so they are lessened when we have some other things to take care of. When I think back on my experiences of development, it feels like someone who was reminiscing of a wild time in college- it was an adventure and a unique experience to say the least! Maybe I will write about those in other articles! LOL!

Here are the things that seemed to impact me and heighten my development in psychic abilities that I am sharing from an excerpt of a response I gave on this inquiry: (We had already discussed Clearing of the Mind through Meditation prior to this reply, so Meditation would have been my “1A”! LOL! )

Ok I had to think about the question you asked – so having a mentor – she was a retired psychic teacher and we met when we were both volunteering psychic readings, I reached out to her because I was drawn to her, and we did a reading exchange, it was one of the best readings I’ve ever gotten- and she said to keep in touch and ask her anything- and boy I did! Anything at all I asked her about, and she was able to give the info right away. It’s kind of like if you wanted to learn a new language, you could go to classes, or you can find someone who can train you one on one would be more quicker and more custom to your speed and what you need.
 2. THE KEY:
Another one was to find the “key” to opening you. There is someone who will be the “key”. I don’t know if I’m the key for you, if you don’t open up more or gain more abilities since we meet, then I’m not the one and it’s someone else. For me it was that retired psychic teacher, once she said I could see spirit and angels, I was able to “see” instantly. A few times I was the “key” for others and they just opened up instantly. I don’t really know how that happens, or if it just happens to some people, but that blew me wide open! LOL!  So I don’t know if it will apply to you if it’s just practice or you are to meet with the “key” person to open you up more.
Also I found that my abilities heightened even more when I had a network of friends who had abilities- it was like we created a psychic web and pooled our energy. So even when I was chatting with them, whoever I was chatting with and myself got heightened in abilities, and we could pick up things to help the other. It was like a support network too! There were some incidents I really needed their help because I didn’t understand what was going on.
And development in connection with my guides/angel- if meditation doesn’t work, I suggest maybe find an activity where you feel spaced out- driving, taking a walk, exercising, daydreaming, it’s the same state as your readings when you pick up the messages or visions. And I don’t do this as much as I should, but I used to communicate daily with my guides. So I white lighted, lit a candle, and tried to maintain the same time each day, and I would have a conversation with them. It was actually really great. I would ask my mentor at the time tons of questions, and once I developed communication with my guides, she would start to say “ask your guides”- and so I became more independent from her. She told me that our guides are our best teachers because everyone is developing differently, and has different gifts and is on different paths, but our guides know our plan and life purpose here and we’ve planned them to be our guides here, so they are our best bet as teachers.
I didn’t have this problem when I was first open to my abilities. I could “see” clearly no matter what I ate. But slowly I was getting signs to eat less and less meat and processed foods. It was slowly a little at a time- no more dairy, not much meat, less sugar, caffeine – and I didn’t know that it had a connection to my spiritual path- but it’s all connected- body mind spirit and all levels have to be balanced. Now when I read I find that if I eat very poorly it feels like I clog my channels, and feel very numb to messages, and even cards that I’ve read for years seem like another language to me when I don’t eat well! I have 2 new mentors because I’m studying trance channeling, and she and the other mentor both talk about food and diet that helped them. One of them can go without food and just does water fasting to be a clear channel for events. I’ve gone only 24 hrs with water, and I felt a difference, but don’t feel called to fast completely. So just healthy foods for me. This may not be applicable for you, you could already be eating well, or may not be a factor that affects your abilities, but this seems to be important for me at this point of development 🙂


I hope this helps some of you that are looking for answers on this topic. It was very interesting for me to think back and see what had helped me on this journey! 🙂

I would love to hear from you if this helped you, or if you have any comments about it or any questions to ask in channel or about development. You can comment below or email me at

Wishing you all blessings and Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas! 🙂
