Jon Stewart and Tavis Smiley

A couple of days ago I was hanging out with two great guys and great friends of mine, Jon Stewart and Tavis Smiley. These two men just delight me. I hang out with them all the time. I love people who are bright, fun and intelligent and who have big hearts. Whether it’s their wit and brilliance, their passion, their unique and vibrant interests or their secret smiles, I just love them. They are in my home all the time and I am so glad to have them in my life.

Now, Jon Stewart is releasing his new film, “Rosewater,” and Tavis Smiley just released his new book, “Death of a King.” They both have a unique brilliance that becomes a gift to us all. And they have such versatility!

Jon Stewart can come into my home any time! He can talk about anything! He can interview almost anyone and still keep his wit, humor and wisdom about him. You know where he stands and still, he is honoring of those he interviews even when he disagrees with their point of view. He does ask them great, poignant and fun questions and brings the humor or irony or absurdity into the conversation. That is genuine generosity. In this world, that is amazing!

Tavis Smiley brings his passion and joy into my home. I love this guy’s laugh. You can see that his joy and heart drive him. His eyes light up. When he interviews artists, you can see their soul shine and you can see how much Tavis loves the arts and the artists. Of course, he is politically astute, brings forward brilliant perspectives and he also introduces a deep passion for those who deserve to be acknowledged. Continue reading

Don’t let second-hand stress ruin your life

Now there is recent, scientific proof that you can catch stress from other people, just like you catch a cold. It’s contagious and detrimental to your health and your life! Seriously, you can catch and absorb stress from other people.

Teams at Saint Louis University and University of California at San Francisco recently created “secondhand stress” to study whether it could be as contagious as a cold. Researchers found that stress can be passed on. Not only that, you can catch and absorb stress from just watching a person in a stressful situation.

I’ve been teaching you how to stop absorbing negative energy from people and situations for years. That’s why I created my course Claim Your Spiritual Real Estate: How to Tune In and Be Open Without Absorbing Negative Energy. I’ve seen this second hand stress and negative energy in the lives of my clients. You can absorb negative energy from clients, associates, friends and other people and often, you don’t even know you are absorbing it. I’ve also experienced this second hand stress and negative energy in my own life.

As an intuitive and psychic from birth, I would pick up on all of the info from other people around me. That included people’s energy, fears, and emotions. I didn’t really pay attention to any of it because I was used to feeling that way. Of course, that mean I was used to feeling and picking up other people’s energy.

The turning point for me, was years ago when my husband Peter and I were in Boston and we drove by a funeral home. All of a sudden, I got really snippy with Peter. Since we had been driving and laughing seconds before this, he asked me what was going on. Because of the immediacy of the situation, I knew I was picking up on the anger and mourning from the people about this person’s death.

This one incident showed me how much absorbing negative energy could impact me. If this happened just by driving by the funeral home, I could imagine how much stuff I absorbed every day. Continue reading
