For as long as I can remember, I have kept a side of me in the dark. It is something that I haven’t been entirely honest with you about, for various reasons. After a lifetime of experiences, a lot of soul searching, and countless confirmations… it is time to accept this part of me and bring it into light. The time has come to discuss it so, let’s BLOG about it.
It is time to face facts… there is an undeniable Psychic light that burns inside of me. It has burned since I was a child. But over the course of time and several terrifying incidents, I blocked this part of me. I did this because I was too young to process what was happening to me. Also, I didn’t want to stand out any more than I already did. So fear, in more ways than one, has been my driving reason for hiding the depths of my intuition.
Once, when I was a child, I went down into the basement of our house to turn off lights and locked down the house. I went down the steps, checked the basement doors, and turned off the lights. As soon as I turned off the light by the staircase, I felt a chill throughout my body. Almost immediately, there was a full apparition standing in front of me. Absolutely petrified and near tears, I ran up the stairs to escape him. Sadly, I couldn’t run fast enough. No matter how hard I climbed, he was right on top of my shoulders. I screamed out loud to my mother, who ran to me. I was nearly inconsolable. When I finally caught my breath, I described the man in great detail. My mother told me to forget this and to go on to bed. After prayers and more time with mom, I fell asleep.
It was only last month when my mother finally revealed that there was more to this story. I wasn’t chased by some figment of my imagination. I wasn’t chased by reflections off windows or any other “NORMAL” explanation. I was being chased by a member of my own family, who had died years before my birth. My mother kept this from me because she didn’t want to frighten me further. Thanks Mom, I agree with you; I couldn’t have processed that at the time. This story is one of many that my mother could share with you.
I experienced my first interaction with a Shadow Person when I was only 15 years old. This is a story that I will not be sharing with you. I can only say that as I told this story to my husband, I wept because of the residual fear from this encounter. Maybe one day I can share that with you, but today isn’t that day. Sufficient to say, the experience lead to me further blocking this 6th sense. It would be 15 years before I experienced another Shadow Person.
Last year, my husband bought me a house. Within 2 weeks of living in this house, I felt like there was someone always watching me from a neighbor’s upstairs window. When I would look, nobody would be there. I would try to shake the feeling, but failed – every single time. A month or two after that, I began seeing the face of a woman in that window. Shortly after that, I would come to make out more details about her… she way crying, beating on the window, screaming to be let out. Most recently, I have not only seen and felt her, but began to get emotional when it happened. I felt defeated, deflated, abused and trapped. These are not my feelings, these are hers.
Yesterday, after a year of saying nothing, I went up to the neighbors who own the house. I said, “Ma’am, I am Ken Boggle. I am a Tarot Card Reader and I wondered if I could talk to you about your house. I don’t want to scare you or offend you, but I want to discuss the woman in your upstairs window.” She looked at me with her mouth open, holding her goose-bump-covered arm up, so that I could see it.
“How did you know?!” she asked me. I explained the situation to her and that I was afraid to talk with her about it. I explained the course of events to her and asked if she has seen them herself. She denied that she had, but said that her son (who sleeps in that upstairs room) had seen, “the people.” This confirmed that I also discerned several other entities in the house, without ever being in it.
I asked her if she would like for me to go into her house and discuss this with her and get her some help. She denied my offer. Instead, she replied with, “No. We’ve moved out. We can’t live there. We’re going to rent it out, speak to the new people and see if you can help them. We’re not staying there anymore.” I touched her hand and thanked her for letting me speak to her about this sensitive issue.
Immediately after this happened, I went into my house and felt a huge burden lifted off of me. Finally, this was all I needed to confirm that I am something of a Psychic/Medium. It is confirmed that I am not going crazy and that this isn’t make believe. But try to understand my next point… This is something that I didn’t want and I am petrified of it. So, I need to come to terms with this.
Does this mean I am a Human-Ouija board? Absolutely not. Does this mean I will be holding séances and communing with dead Aunt Blanche? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Please, don’t even ask. I need some time with this and I needed to get it off my chest and be open about it.
~And to all of you who already knew this about me… thank you for letting me make this journey in my own time and for your support. You know who you are.
All My Love,
When we were younger, we were all full of questions. The most popular of these questions being, WHY? “Why is the sky blue?” “Why is the grass green?” “Why is that woman wearing a bikini in Wal-Mart?” All sorts of questions boggled our little minds. As adults, this same question continues to perplex us. So, I just have to BLOG about it.
This past weekend, a client asked me how she could continue on with her marriage. “I can’t stand him, Ken. He is not who he used to be, all he does is video games. What should I do?” My response was simple: ask yourself WHY you should stay.
I pointed out that she had children and that he is wonderful to those children. I explained that she does still care for him, or she wouldn’t be bothered in asking me what to do… she would have left by now. Lastly, I asked her why she married him in the first place. We discussed these things and she soon realized that she needed to reinvest HERSELF into the marriage and that SHE had cashed out years before. So sometimes, knowing why will help you see what you need to do to make things better.
But knowing why isn’t always easy…
Recently, a Tarot client faced a tragic and horrific situation. Her daughter’s friend had been beaten and left for dead on the side of a road. She and her daughter were torn to pieces and devastated by this. I was also shocked and disturbed by what happened. But my client asked me, “Ken, why did this happen? Why would someone do something like this?”
But honestly, the reality is that type of hatred can never be understood - by a rational, loving mind. The animalistic, hateful, and psychotic mind that did this can never be understood by decent people. So, to her, I said… “Don’t ask why. You’ll never grasp this level of hatred. Instead, focus on supporting your daughter and seeing her through this. There is no reasoning behind this.” She agreed and focused on her daughter. As of yesterday, they are accepting their grief and doing what they can to move on.
“Ken, sometimes I don’t even want to get out of bed. I have no joy and I am desperate.” a client said to me the other day. She had a million reasons to give up and she told them each to me, one by one. She had all sorts of reasons, work, family, finances. But the one thing she didn’t know was WHY she should keep going.
So, I asked her why she should continue… and I kept asking until she started seeing all of the reasons why she shouldn’t give up. The cards made it clear she was currently in a Hell state, but that there was hope… if she would open her eyes and see it. After her reading and much support, she dried her tears and vowed to not throw in the towel. I was so elated. Knowing why she had to keep going was all she needed to keep going.
Knowing why keeps us in-check, on the right path, and motivated.
Understanding why can be the difference in throwing in the towel and changing your life. So please, ask yourself why. You may find that WHY may be the most important question you will ever ask.
All My Love,
No matter where you pray, you cannot deny, there are many things in life that need a good cleansing. In fact, your life itself needs a regular going-over. The theme of cleansing was very prevalent during last week’s Tarot Readings. People wanna know how to cleanse their homes, their lives, and all sorts of stuff. So, I just have to BLOG about it.
Let’s begin by discussing the process of cleansing Tarot cards! Many people have their own special way of cleansing their decks. I have often heard of Tarot Readers leaving their decks under a cleansing grid of stones. Surprisingly, some Readers actually sleep with their Tarot Decks! Other readers will leave their decks out in the light of the full moon. The most common method I have discovered is burning Sage and running the cards through the smoke; essentially, smudging the deck.
Personally, I believe in touching the deck. I lay my hands on the deck and send pure, white light and energy throughout the deck. And if you ever have a reading with me, you know that I knock on the deck before every spread, I do this to gather my attention and clear the deck of any lingering energies. This method has never done me wrong! However, this does not mean the other methods of cleansing are bad… Quite the opposite! I say, to each Reader, his own!
Upon occasion, I am asked by clients how they can cleanse their homes. This usually happens when we have discovered that there are negative energies in the home. The most popular method of home cleansing is the process of smudging. So, what is smudging? It is the iconic process of burning sage while dispelling negativity from each corner of your home. Most often, people will burn Sage bundles in an Abalone shell while they waft the smoke with a feather. During this ceremony, prayers may be offered or mantras may be chanted.
Is this the only way to cleanse your home? Nope! Many people wash their windows and door frames in a mixture of lemon juice, salt, and water! The overall idea behind this is to cleanse the entrances to your home and protect the residence against negative energies.
Myself? I believe that the best way to cleanse a home is with an experienced Medium, a member of Clergy, or a well-trained Shaman. If you would like to attempt this on your own, I say that you can never go wrong with Prayer. Pray throughout your home, all around your property, and in any areas that make you uncomfortable. Surround yourself with the white light protection of the heavenly deities and allow them to cleanse your home through you. Once you have done that, get up and CLEAN THAT HOUSE! Negative spirits and energies despise clean, organized, light-filled space. And lastly, laugh! Laugh as often and as loud as you can. Living in light is the best defense against unsavory energies.
Don’t forget to cleanse your own life energy! Guess what the most popular method of cleansing is done to cleanse people? You guessed it, smudging. Just like Tarot Cards and houses, people can also be smudged. You simply pass the smoke of the burning Sage over yourself, paying close attention to the chakras. Your intention here is to allow the smoke to purify you and your energies. This process can be done alone or with someone else; preferably, with someone who has had experience with personal smudging.
I cleanse and purify my energies by chanting and reciting the Lotus Sutra. During this process, I burn white candles and light several sticks of incense. But more important than those accessories is the cleansing chanting and silent prayers. I do this twice a day, every day. Without it, you can tell that I am slightly off and out of rhythm.
How often should one cleanse themselves, or their homes??? As often as you’d like. There is not certain span of time or expiration date on cleansing. You may find that cleansing needs to be an every day thing for you. I am to understand that Rock Goddess, Pink is smudged every day… So, there is no limit to how often you can do this! Smudge and cleanse for you all you worth, lover!
So there you have it, a SUPER condensed discussion on cleansing. I hope that it has been enlightening and has inspired you to cleanse areas of your own life! I do encourage you to research each of these methods and to study them closely, before you attempt any of them on your own. Once you have properly educated yourself, go for it! Open your life up to the liberation of cleansing!!!
All My Love,
