I can tell you now that a self-proclaimed missing children's psychic Gale St John and partner Brian Ladd tried and failed to take my trademark "12Listen" from me three days after she was fired for misconduct from 12Listen.com.
Last year on my birthday she wrote me that she now owned my name and that I'd better find a new home on the Internet.
Facebook believed her and kicked me and my staff off of our 12listen page. She wanted $30, 000 for me to have her stop.
But Truth Prevailed. I'm so grateful for so many things - but my sweet-ass lawyer was/is a personal hero. Thank you David Faux of New York!
And thank you all for putting up with my silence and my anger and my momentary lapse of faith. Gale and Brian Surrendered and did NOT GET ONE PENNY from me!
This week seemed filled with even more little surprises - the kind that made me smile.
One such surprise was the simultaneous return of two 12Listen.com Advisors from the same era 6 years ago.
Linda Kalyris and Angela Hartfield finally landed from life's creative whirlwind and are ready to offer their extraordinary wisdom to 12listen.com!
She's a "Firecracker" but, I suspect that most activists are. I call her an activist because she's been confronting the evils of bad "pet food" from big corporations before it was ever popular. In order to teach us, She also has to get past our blind obedience when it comes to feeding and caring for our Animal Companions—she is unyielding! The proof of her work lies in the countless lives she has saved. I have followed her advice to the letter with Jaw Dropping Results and two very Healthy (knock wood) 9 year old cats. Please, Join me Tuesday at 9am Pacific for a groundbreaking show featuring this amazing teacher and homeopathic advocate, Pat McKay. On Hay House Radio!
Until next week,
I'm with you on the Quest!

I believe in omens.
I've had remarkable conversations with the Universe through omens, so it was no surprise to me when, as I was about to hit the proverbial hay last night, I asked myself, "what should I write about this week," and the answer was immediately given. It came in the form of an orange piece of paper on my nightstand.
A few years ago, I got it in my head that the best way to keep thoughts organized was to buy half-sized index cards of different colors and write notes on them. The experiment turned out to be a pretty bad idea. There were index cards everywhere, most of them saying not much of anything, or worse, total gibberish. (One that still bothers me was, "Lemon goat reminder??? Monday!!")
These index cards eventually found their way into every nook and cranny of our house. Exactly where this came from is a mystery and I'm much too embarrassed to ask my wife where she found it. No matter, there it was.
It turned out to be a quote by Teddy Roosevelt.
"I don't pity any man who does hard work worth doing. I admire him. I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being."
I first happened upon this quote years ago when I was in a gloomy state of mind. There's nothing easy about making one's way in our society, no matter which path you choose, and I was in one of those moods.
Even though you and I find the metaphysical to be perfectly normal and delightful, there are those in our culture who think that what we do is on the fringe, or just plain silly. Perhaps you haven't experienced a bias against alternative beliefs, but I'll wager that on more than one occasion, someone has said something to you that has been less than supportive.
At any rate, I was wallowing in self pity when I first stumbled across this quote and it spoke to me. I asked myself, "Is what I do worth doing?"
Sometimes it's hard to justify loving one's path as much as I do and calling it work. Work is supposed to tax our energy and darken our disposition, or is it? I spent a great deal of time contemplating my chosen profession and came to the conclusion that I couldn't have done anything more worthy of my particular talents and interests, and that it's an honor and privilege to be in the field I'm in.
Is what I work at every day worth doing? I think it is.
Hard work is the foundation of progress. Those of us who follow our hearts in metaphysics, strive to help others in any way we can. In the meantime, we try to survive as best as possible, and we aren't alone. Every single one of you is doing something important and worth doing, or striving toward that goal.
Nothing is mundane. You may be supporting someone in your life who needs you to help them achieve their goals. We underestimate the importance of those who facilitate for others. Raising children, care-taking a sick loved one, providing a loving home, admin work and other callings are often wrongly overlooked, showing the bias of a society addicted to success and power.
If you are a teacher or trainer of any kind, but especially of children, you have one of the most vital jobs on the planet, for your dedication is the fabric of our future.
If you protect the rights of those who can't protect themselves, or stand up for those in need of an advocate, then you are doing work that defines us as a humane society.
Those of you who toil in corporate jobs, bless you, for you bring expertise and a sorely needed ethical standard to those who often need it the most.
Healers, first responders, civil servants, craftspeople, artists, fry cooks, even talking heads and pundits, all do work worth doing.
In any society, there's a segment of the population that doesn't want to work. Roosevelt's quote says it better than I ever could, "I pity the creature who does not work, at whichever end of the social scale he may regard himself as being." Feelings of entitlement or superiority are doorways to misery.
I never feel sorry for myself anymore. I work, and I love every moment of it. Even though I may bite off more than I can chew, I'm also blessed with a big mouth. I get to explore strange frontiers of the mind, study the ancient arcana of our ancestors, converse with cards, planets, runes and coins, write, and most importantly; I have the honor of helping others.
As long as we put our hearts and souls into what we do, it's worthwhile. It's only when we embrace mediocrity that we fall short of our own expectations and the wishes of the Universe for us. No matter what you do, whether you're in between jobs or working at something you don't like, it's still worth it and will eventually lead you to your true path. Have faith.
We're meant to be here now and we're here for a reason. I'm glad you're here. You should be glad, too.

As I write this I am listening to Krishna Das, My Foolish Heart. I love this piece of music and it illustrates perfectly how I have been feeling lately. At times my foolish heart trusts people that let me down. I have learned over the last year especially that I must love and trust myself and I can't expect that from anyone else. My foolish heart wants everyone to have integrity and my best interest heart, but guess what, that just isn't how life works. Now I don't mean to sound cynical or fatalistic. The facts are that we have to learn to trust ourselves and follow our own hearts. Other people have to do the same. This is what it means to truly take responsibility for our choices and our lives.
As a child I was raised in a conservative religion that taught me that the bishop of my church could receive divine revelation for me. I was not encouraged to ask for divine revelation for myself, I had to go to this man and ask him to ask God for me. I never agreed with this idea and I didn't do it. I bucked the system even as a small child. I used to pray for myself and received plenty of divine guidance all by myself. I knew then as I do now that each of us carries a spark of the divine within ourselves. We don't even need to go outside ourselves to seek divine truth. It is right there in our hearts, if we just trust ourselves enough to ask. So why is it so hard to trust ourselves?
We live in a society that says there is always a higher authority than us, that we must seek someone smarter, older, or more experienced than we are for knowledge. I challenge this idea in my own life and I encourage you to do the same. Throw caution to the wind and stop looking to "authorities" for answers. Look to yourself. Ask yourself what is true for you and trust it. This takes practice and time to see the results of your efforts, but I promise you that you will feel validated and happier when you follow yourself and the divine spark within you.
My Angelic Guide, Archangel Michael puts it this way, "Trust yourself and your own inner guidance above all else. You are the expert on your own life. You know what you need, and what will make you happy better than anyone. We, the angels, are here to guide and support you. Together we will work with you to support you in honoring your inner guidance."
Now this may seem like a contradictory statement, an Archangel saying to trust ourselves first and ask for angelic support to learn to trust ourselves. I know, and I am sure you do as well, that much of what we do is based on what we think we should do, not on what we truly want. My guides have taught me honor myself first, and when I struggle with taking brave leaps, to ask for help. I know that as an advisor on 12Listen.com I do a lot of validating and supporting the inner truth of my callers. We all need validation and confirmation, but what we don't need is judgment and control. See the difference? I thought you would!
