Maintaining friendships from our past is a fortunate feat as we age, yet it's also natural for some connections to fade over time. Rare are those who remain constants from childhood into adulthood. While having old friends can bridge the gap between imagination and reality, there's a nuanced aspect to it.
In my over thirty years of conducting readings, I find it intriguing when clients from a decade ago resurface. It serves as a reminder of my own journey, prompting reflections on the distance traveled and the lessons learned, including those who've come and gone.
In the days before selfies, memories were captured in physical photographs, often stored in boxes. My own collection has a noticeable gap since the advent of camera phones, now replaced by sporadic digital snapshots. The thought of losing these memories to a technological glitch begs the question: How secure is the cloud?
There's a nostalgic charm in holding a Polaroid, as I recently rediscovered when a friend shared an old photograph of our children. The image transported me back in time, evoking memories of our past lives and surroundings. It's a stark contrast to the selfie culture of today, where photos are snapped without much thought.
In the past, photographs were taken to commemorate events or occasions, fostering shared memories and storytelling. Unlike the impulsive nature of modern selfies, film photos were developed over time, creating anticipation and a sense of connection upon retrieval.
Recently, a conversation with a friend about my teenage years sparked curiosity about an old flame. Remarkably, shortly after, I received a Facebook message from him, triggered by his discovery of an old photo of us. The image captured a younger, more innocent version of myself, sparking reflections on youth, love, and the passage of time.
This unexpected reunion prompted memories of our shared past and led to a meeting thirty years later. As we reminisced about old times and caught up on our current lives, it became clear that while memories may differ, they hold significance in shaping our narratives.
As friendships evolve and memories linger, our brains have a way of reshaping the past, blurring the lines between reality and perception. While photographs may capture moments frozen in time, the stories they tell are subjective, shaped by our individual perspectives. In the end, perhaps what truly matters is the journey and the connections made along the way.

I often find myself discussing blocks and the concept of seven-year cycles, perhaps to the point of repetition! However, delving into and releasing subconscious blockages isn't as daunting as it may seem. Reflecting on my experiences from what feels like a century ago, when I was learning past life regression, regression therapy was often likened to opening a can of worms. Interestingly, many clinical hypnotherapists shy away from practicing or teaching it, which often led to me taking on the role of educator in this area. Understanding our past is crucial for understanding who we are today.
Change inevitably brings challenges into our lives, often propelling us in new directions where our egos may not have much influence. As Carl Jung famously said, "The shadow exists as part of the unconscious mind and is composed of repressed ideas, weaknesses, desires, instincts, and shortcomings."
Lately, I've observed a common theme among my clients and friends: significant life changes, particularly job transitions aimed at achieving a more balanced lifestyle. While prioritizing passion, fun, and creativity may seem like the obvious choice, navigating through change often involves contending with our inner critic, which can undermine our efforts to live the life we truly deserve.
Many seek healing to move forward, but even after healing, the shadow of our past experiences tends to linger. Consciously acknowledging and confronting our suppressed truths allows us to confront our past traumas and move forward unburdened.
Shadow work, a term often used in psychology, involves exploring the disowned parts of our personality that originated in childhood and were shaped by our upbringing. These shadow aspects manifest as triggers—emotional reactions and behaviors that we may not even be aware of until they're triggered by certain situations.
Triggers serve as valuable clues, revealing our inner wounds and providing opportunities for self-healing. By observing our triggers without judgment, we can identify repetitive patterns and gradually heal and integrate our shadows, reducing their impact on our lives.
Integration is the goal of shadow work. By shining a light on our shadows and accepting them without judgment, we diminish their power over us. Spending time alone to reflect on our childhood experiences can help us identify our shadow selves and set intentions for healing and integration.
Ultimately, shedding light on our inner darkness allows us to move forward unburdened by past traumas, embracing all aspects of ourselves with compassion and self-acceptance.

There is a misconception that meeting your soulmate will be your fantastic fairy tale where you live happily ever after.
Soul mates are everywhere. It could be your pet, parent, the neighbour.
The Oxford Dictionary states - Soulmate - a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
You are correct in thinking a soulmate is a person who is perfectly suited to you when it is stated as such. However, there is more to soulmates than is truly understood.
People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed, often a subconscious thought you have sent out to the universe. Thoughts are strong and we must be aware of being careful in what we wish for. People come into your life to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally, or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend. As human beings, we long for this, so we tend to hold on too long and then that person may soon frustrate the heck out of you! Whatever, or whoever. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Often understanding why they are in your life is unclear until they leave. Usually, without any wrongdoing on your part, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. What we realise later is that what we once desired was fulfilled, once we have this realisation, the lesson is done. The wish you sent up to the Universe has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a season because your turn has come to share, grow, or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season. Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life.

Most of my day is spent talking to people. Emotions can run high so I must always remain balanced and grounded. I am so fortunate that I have great clients who have a wonderful sense of humor and because of this, the sessions are not intense.
I've been immersed in this line of work for quite some time now, and I've heard just about every remark imaginable. Criticism doesn't faze me anymore; often, it stems from fear of the unknown. I'm always intrigued by clients who approach skeptically, wondering why they're seeking a reading. But once they connect with their loved ones and guides, they're usually left astounded and eager to book another session.
In the past, comments from skeptics used to be rather harsh, and I was often taken aback by the negativity. However, times have changed, and we're witnessing a merging of science and spirituality. People often ask me about the entities I channel, the names of my guides, and whether I believe in fairies. Every reader is unique, and I don't dwell on the identities of my guides; they serve a purpose, and each client's connection is different. My readings are straightforward, which is why I'm frequently approached for business-related consultations. As for fairies, I haven't personally seen one, but I know plenty of others who have.
Most reputable readers adhere to a code of ethics, a set of personal guidelines agreed upon with their guides during their development. Mine include never reading for someone under the influence, always obtaining permission, and refraining from unethical remote readings. I firmly believe that breaching these ethics would result in spiritual consequences, potentially hindering my ability to assist clients. My clientele primarily consists of businesspeople, likely due to my background in the business world. I possess practical skills that my guides utilize, allowing us to focus on specialized areas like relationship conflicts, mental health, suicide, depression, and work-related transitions.
Occasionally, I'm asked about missing individuals or animals. If the inquiry is made directly to me, I may provide an answer, but I always respect people's privacy and boundaries. Additionally, for those attending public mediumship shows, it's essential to consider whether their deceased loved ones would feel comfortable communicating in such a setting. It's not uncommon for me to coax a hesitant spirit into speaking, but once they hear the client's voice, they often can't wait to convey their message. Whether you're a skeptic or simply curious, I encourage you to engage with a psychic and see how you feel. After three decades in this field, I'm still amazed by the magic that unfolds. Trust me; I'm a skeptic too! Book a reading and see for yourself
The energy of sacrifice is present, urging you to make decisions amidst the backdrop of karmic lessons unfolding this month. Past experiences resurface in your present, serving as a gauge of your personal evolution. Are you repeating old patterns, or have you truly grown? Some may sense a void in their lives, yet believe that change is underway. The nature of this transformation hinges on the efforts you've invested in restoring balance and harmony to your life thus far.
This period feels akin to preparing for a performance review with a divine boss—no hidden agendas, no room for fast-talking or excuses. Embracing change, whether perceived as positive or negative, is crucial. Avoiding it only perpetuates the cycle of cause and effect. Life becomes easier when we accept change rather than resist it.
While change may initially seem daunting, remember that you have the power to adapt your mindset in response to new circumstances. Unconscious thoughts, shaped by past experiences and expectations, often influence our actions without our awareness. Many of our negative habits stem from these subconscious patterns, leading us down paths that no longer serve us.
You may sense the need to let go of something in your life, even if you're unsure of what exactly needs releasing. Ignoring this inner call weakens your resolve and attracts further challenges. This year invites you to embrace change, even when it means relinquishing familiar comforts or relationships. Recognizing your past patterns and understanding the cyclical nature of change empowers you to make informed decisions.
It's essential to release the weight of the past and reconnect with your higher self when feeling stuck. Quiet reflection and introspection can provide clarity and guidance. Remember, this phase, like all others, is transient. Embrace the light within you and trust in the transformative power of change. Learn more about releasing your Karmic energy.
On the journey of spiritual growth, learning is a constant process. Often, people enter our lives to reveal aspects of themselves, acting as mirrors reflecting parts of our own being that may have eluded our awareness. Some of these encounters leave a profound impact, while others pass by unnoticed. My own understanding of twin flames unfolded in a rather unexpected and, at times, harsh manner.
During a conversation with a friend centered around missed opportunities, I found myself reflecting on the challenges and complexities of my own life journey. As we discussed how we might have navigated relationships, finances, and family dynamics differently, I couldn't shake the feeling of discontentment and yearning for true happiness within myself. My friend, not inclined towards spirituality, approached the dialogue from a more materialistic perspective, highlighting losses of a different nature.
Upon returning home, a wave of melancholy washed over me, prompting tears that seemed to flow without a clear reason. Despite feeling emotionally raw, I attempted to carry on with my routine the next day, still puzzled by the intensity of my emotional reaction. It was then, as I delved into my computer, that I stumbled upon the concept of twin flames.
Through my research, I discovered that a twin flame can manifest as a person who acts as a catalyst for profound inner transformation. Reflecting on my own experiences and the themes explored in my book, "Transform Your Psyche," I realized that while I had intellectually processed past traumas, I had not fully allowed myself to grieve and heal from them. In essence, my friend had unwittingly served as my twin flame, prompting me to confront my unresolved emotions and embark on a journey of self-discovery and healing.
A twin flame, I came to understand, serves as an energetic force that prompts us to look within ourselves, holding up a mirror to our deepest fears, desires, and wounds. Through this encounter, I was compelled to acknowledge and address my past losses and fears about the future, ultimately catalyzing a profound period of personal growth and introspection.
This excerpt from "Under the Veil " reflects my journey of spiritual awakening and the transformative power of encountering a twin flame along the path to self-realisation. Read the full story of Peter and Paul
From the moment we enter this world, we arrive with a predetermined blueprint—a plan, a destiny outlining our purpose and reason for existence on this earth. Seems straightforward, doesn't it?
When genetics and environment intertwine, we find ourselves navigating a life that often feels overwhelming.Understanding our journey requires a deep awareness of the lessons embedded in our experiences. These lessons are like seeds planted early in life, perhaps even in past lives, shaping our path and destiny. It's only when we reach a certain point in our journey that we begin to grasp our true purpose and align our actions with it, benefiting both ourselves and those we encounter along the way.
Consider upbringing: If conflict was a constant in your early years, you might find yourself drawn to conflict throughout your life, making it a recurring lesson to master. Similarly, if financial struggles or addictions have plagued you, these challenges serve as your life lessons, urging you to confront and overcome them.
Life's synchronicities often lead us to discover our purpose, prompting us to achieve our desires seemingly effortlessly. Some may call this luck, but perhaps it's a result of heightened awareness and a willingness to adapt our life's purpose in response to challenges.
People enter our lives as vessels of wisdom and growth, whether for a brief encounter or a lifelong connection. These individuals, often referred to as soul mates, come to us to impart or receive life lessons. Soul mates aren't limited to romantic partners; they can be family, friends, strangers, or even animals—any being that resonates with our spirit and contributes to our spiritual growth.
To truly understand the intentions of our soul mates, we must delve deep into introspection, tapping into the depths of our own consciousness to unravel the intricacies of our connections with others. This introspective journey involves examining our thoughts, feelings, and reactions in response to the people we encounter, allowing us to uncover hidden patterns and subconscious motivations underlying our relationships.
Intuition plays a crucial role in deciphering the intentions of our soul mates. It is the intuitive voice within us that whispers insights and guidance, nudging us toward greater understanding and clarity in our interactions. By honing our intuitive abilities and learning to trust our inner guidance, we can gain profound insights into the true nature of our connections with others.
Furthermore, cultivating a willingness to learn from the connections we form along our journey is essential. Each interaction, whether positive or negative, offers valuable lessons and opportunities for growth. By approaching these relationships with an open heart and mind, we can glean wisdom from every encounter and deepen our understanding of ourselves and others.
In essence, understanding the intentions of our soul mates requires a multifaceted approach that encompasses introspection, intuition, and a genuine eagerness to learn and grow from the connections we forge along our life's journey.
"I am a very fortunate person to have consulted Brigid when I was entangled in an online affair, she saved me from making a huge monetary mistake."
Every week, I receive frantic calls from individuals who have a nagging feeling that something isn't quite right in their situations. The world of online dating is booming, with billions of dollars circulating within the industry. In New Zealand alone, online scams have amounted to over $25 million, with a staggering $4 million attributed to romance scams, a figure nearly equivalent to our population.
Despite our innate intuition, which often serves as a reliable warning system, why is it that we tend to overlook these signals when it comes to matters of the heart?
The answer often lies in the potent mix of loneliness and the desire to feel wanted, which creates a ripe breeding ground for narcissistic individuals to thrive. Despite the blaring alarms, we convince ourselves that we're misinterpreting the signs and press on, eagerly lapping up the reassuring words of our potential partners.
However, it's crucial to recognise the common tactics employed by scammers, as reported by countless victims:
Above all, don't hesitate to confide in someone you trust. Opening up about your experiences can provide invaluable support and perspective, helping you navigate the complexities of online dating safely and confidently.
