Psychic Kids with Miss Betty Roberts
By Betty Roberts
Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow Children
Have you ever wondered are your children gifted? Are they psychic? What does this mean? More children are being born with heightened sensitivities than ever before. In this class, you can gain a better understanding of their gifts and how to support them.
Many children who are born with a strong psychic gift ask lots of questions. One group is called Indigos. These children are the warriors. Many are now diagnosed ADHD or ADD. We find they have a hard time in school. Perhaps a better name would be Attention Dialed into a Higher Dimension. Maybe ADD should be AWE-tistic. Are they clairsentience (psychic feelings)? Are they clairvoyance (psychic seeing)? Clairaudience (psychic hearing)? What about Crystal children? They have large eyes that seem wise beyond their years. Did your child talk late, maybe not until age 3-1/2 or 4 years old? Are they picky eaters? These are some of the traits of crystal children. Many may have many allergies. Rainbow and crystal children have never been on this earth before until now. They are heart centered. They are very telepathic. They are here to teach us the power of thought.
This was sent by a client who was also interested in attending the class on Psychic Kids at our Lansing Convention.
Psychic Ability 101: So What if Your Child is Clairsentient?
By Tana Hoy
People have always questioned every psychic ability, and they have many fears when this subject matter is brought to the table, most especially if their kids are involved. But frankly speaking, the psychic sphere is full of amazing things, and if you are open enough to the experience can be a journey which is beyond our imagination. A psychic ability is innate in all of us, although some persons exhibit a more strong symptom of having the gift than others.
Youngsters display very powerful symptoms of any psychic ability, and this is most symptomatic in their toddling stage, the age when we are most psychic. Psychic gifts in youngsters are very common. In reality, psychic children are often referred to as Indigo or Crystal children. There are numerous exceptional powers in the psychic realm. For kids, the three most popular abilities are telepathy, clairsentience, and clairvoyance. But generally speaking, indications of psychic abilities often connect, this is the reason why it may be hard to noticeably tell what certain type of special gift is bestowed upon a person.
So now you may question, should I be alarmed if my child shows symptoms of being psychic? Actually, no — there is practically nothing worrying about it; actually, children can benefit a lot from their psychic gifts, when these abilities are properly tuned.
Signs of these special gifts come in the simplest forms. This makes any psychic ability hardly recognizable, because they just appear as a normal scene in our everyday lives. Let us take a closer look at the psychic ability of being clairsentient in children.
By definition, the clairsentient psychic ability is also known as the gift of empathy. This means that a person with this psychic ability has the capability to sense, feel, and comprehend the physical emotions of others, including animals or even spirits.
Being an empath simply means knowing what others exactly feel, though they do not present it. Kids who show signs of having the psychic ability of empathy, are generally very sensitive towards others, animals, and even plants. Not just that, since they can also feel the emotions of others, you can often notice them crying when other little ones around them weep.
Empathy is said to be the most helpful and useful psychic ability for youngsters. Having kids grow as clairsentients, make them better individuals as they age. When kids are more aware of other people's feelings, they tend to have more sympathy for others — this allows them to work together better and be better with other individuals. Likewise, when a youngster becomes in tuned with another individual's feelings, they understand to deal with issues in a more positive form.
So what will you if the signs of the clairsentient psychic ability is apparent in your child, what will you do? Well, you need to do what any parent should do when their youngster has a exceptional gift — help the child feed the treasure.
Any psychic ability should by no means be feared of. A psychic ability is a good thing, and it should be taken cared of. Dealing with Crystal children is not much of a challenge. However, it all must begin first with the mother and father — that they should have belief in the ways of the psychic realm, and that they need to be encouraging in each step of the development of their children's psychic ability.
Michelle Moore's weight loss seminar is drawing lots of interest for the Lansing Cosmic Connections Convention! It's the first scheduled event on Friday so ask for the day off of work and come out for the entire weekend!
|Note from Seminar Presenter, Michelle Moore....
If you or someone you love are dealing with any compulsive or addictive issues and want to know more about applying spiritual principles in healing them, I hope you'll join me in this seminar at the Lansing Cosmic Connections Convention!
Do you think you need food that you don't really need? Do you practically inhale food? crave food? obsessed about food? binge on and then alternately avoid food? Food is not only your problem, it is also your teacher. It is a reflection of an even deeper problem. Your only problem, is a separation from Divine Mind. The talk will delve into some things to consider so that you may lose emotional and physical weight.
Looking about the American environment & society, it is evident that many are the "walking dead." Citizens are so busy with everyday lives, schedules, and routines that they seldom take time to look at themselves. Because on many levels, we, as a society, are out of contact with ourselves, we mindlessly shovel into our mouths foods that are not good. or nutritious. People crave foods when they're not even hungry. They sit in front of the TV and mindlessly eat. Before long, people are eating for various reasons, but not because they're hungry. The ugly words, addiction and overeating come into play.
Louise Hays, author of You Can Heal Your Life, states that overweight is" fear, need for protection., running away from feelings,. insecurity, self-rejection, seeking fulfillment." Hays, a well renowned author in spirituality, equates bad thinking to manifestation of unwellness or dis-ease of the body.
According to a study of the National Institutes of Health (1992) results showed that diets often don't work.. We don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that. Diets may not be successful because they often don't deal with deep seated emotions. Counting calories falls short when one is dealing with a broken relationship.
The class will be presented with various reasons why people may overeat, under eat as well as reasons addictions are formed. Food may be a problem, but it is also there to teach. Ok, I know you're not going to learn much from a Twinkie (which has a shelf life of over 50 years), but by thinking of WHY you're sticking it in your mouth, may teach you a lot about yourself.
The media bombards us with the perfect woman & the guy with a six-pack abdomen.
As if it weren't bad enough dealing with ourselves, we are constantly given this program that tells us we're not perfect. So what to do?? Eat ice cream I'd say before, but now there's a different way to deal with it... By taking time you will lose emotional baggage, and also lose physical weight. The answer, of course, is going within. We will discuss aspects to help us along: prayers, meditation, and journaling, building a sacred space.
In doing this, we can become mindful of our thoughts and eating. You won't need recipes or restrictions. This goes to the root of food or any addictions. This is a journey for you and well worth the time.
|Spiritual Weight Loss With Mindfulness
By Doug Hanvey
Any successful attempt at spiritual weight loss involves a consistent spiritual practice. Mindfulness meditation is one of the simplest, most powerful spiritual practices, and hundreds of scientific research studies have demonstrated its numerous physical and psychological benefits (in addition to its spiritual benefits). There is ample evidence that mindfulness is one of the most effective meditative practices for healthy weight loss and long-term weight management. This article offers a brief overview of how mindfulness works to promote healthy weight loss and a healthy, balanced approach to eating.
What is mindfulness? How does it "work"? Mindfulness simply means awareness. "Practicing" mindfulness means being intentionally (and non-judgmentally) aware of what is happening in each moment, as best you can. We focus on cultivating awareness of bodily sensations, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions.
The above sentence reveals that mindfulness is a much more profound approach to weight management than most. Diets don't often work in the long-term (as the National Institutes of Health reported in 1992). Why? Because most diets ignore our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and bodily signals that, when healthily synchronized, intelligently inform our eating. (And when not synchronized, may lead us towards unhealthy or even addictive eating.)
Fortunately, mindfulness offers a way out.
BODY: The body is the doorway to a mindfulness or spiritual approach to weight loss. Most of us are out of touch with our bodies. Deepening our awareness of the body helps us get back in touch with its natural hunger and satiety (fullness) cues. We learn to eat when we're truly hungry and stop when we've had enough.
BEHAVIOR: We can become mindful of our eating habits (such as eating too fast), as well as the rich and enjoyable sensory experience of food that we may have missed through lack of awareness. Mindful eating helps us better appreciate our food, and thus enjoy food more while eating less.
THOUGHTS: We can become mindful of our thoughts. We may not be aware just how powerfully thoughts influence our behavior. Nearly all of our actions - and most fixated or addictive behavior - is preceded by thought-intentions of which we are not aware. Cultivating mindfulness of these thoughts is essential for attaining liberation from food fixations.
EMOTIONS: Mindfulness meditation gives us a totally new and liberated way of relating to our emotions, because mindfulness teaches us to observe our emotions instead of sedating them with food. Anything that you can observe has no power over you. Emotions only lead to unwanted eating when we are not fully conscious of them.
Mindfulness meditation can be practiced along with literally any diet or dietary program. As your mindfulness deepens, you will naturally be drawn towards a way of eating that is healthier, less fixated, and more enjoyable. You may even rediscover that your body intuitively knows what and how much to eat, and that you no longer need to submit to the rules, recipes, and restrictions of diets. The idea of spiritual weight loss becomes a reality.
Doug Hanvey teaches mindfulness meditation at Indiana University, and is the author of The Mindfulness Diet, a comprehensive program that goes to the root of troubles related to eating behaviors, dietary choices, and weight management.

Nice Letters We Get
Dear Maria, I wanted to send a note to say Thank you for the reading you did for me and my husband last Friday in Minneapolis. It was enlightening and we were both so impressed with how we could relate to everything you said. As you mentioned, you talk fast and we were overwhelmed by the amount of information so were a bit unsure at the end as to what questions to ask. After we left we talked about all that you said. How our marriage could work, but it would have it's challenges. We are so aware of those challenges and your explainations helped us see how we could better work together or at least understand why our relationship is the way it is.
Thanks Maria! I really enjoy your work and listen in at KS95 in Minneapolis each week.
Sorry I did not make it to the fair in Minny. My daughter came up from the Mankato area. I heard you on the radio this am and again I am still amazed!! Thanks again and I cant wait to see you guys all again this August in Minnesota. Congrats again to you and Joe and thanks for everything.
Thank you for your thoughtful response in the 1 question readings order I placed the other day. I find it fascinating that you could hit on several key things. I was skeptical to see what you might say, but now am feeling like I wish I would have gone to your psychic fair over the weekend. I will be checking with your website on a full reading at some point.
I was able to attend your Friday daytime classes at your convention in Flint last fall. I have to say, all of the classes that I attended were awesome! I met great people and I learned so much, THANK YOU! It was very comforting to be in a room/group of like-minded people. If you have someone who is on the fence about spending the money or if it is a time commitment, tell him or her to just do it. I got so much out of it. I wished I had been able to stay for the evening and weekend, because I am sure it was fabulous!
I would like to pre-register for the Lansing CCC Saturday and Sunday classes (would love to come to the weight loss class on Friday, but have to work). I get paid on Friday, so let me know where to mail the check or if you take Visa.
Thanks so much!
I just read your newsletter and see the conference in Lansing is coming around again. I can't wait. Me and my girlfriends come every year and enjoy it so much that we talk about it all the time. I love the speakers and especially the séance. Last year, my uncle, brother and mom all came through together. It was a heart-warming moment. We'll be signing up soon. Hold us a spot!
Jeanne and friends.
Maria - I wanted to tell you that the aventurine bracelet I ordered from you in December worked! I wore it to the casino and won a lot of money. Around $600! I put it back it though...bummer! But I did walk out with more than I came in with. I know next time to walk away from the machines when I am ahead but it did work!
Editors Note: Wear the aventurine on your left wrist if you are right handed and the opposite if you are left-handed. Your dominant hand is your "giving hand" so you give something away with that hand. Your left (or dominant) hand is your receiving hand; you accept gifts with this hand. You don't want to give the money away but want to draw it in! You can order the aventurine bracelets at the website store.
Astro News - Uranus in Aries This next week: The Revolution of Consciousness
By Maria Shaw
The greatest revolution in history begins March 11th, 2011 with the planet Uranus going into fiery Aries. This is a special time that is being dubbed the Revolution of Consciousness. What is about to unfold is one of the most amazing periods, of not only our lifetimes, but of all lifetimes - and it starts this next week.
Powerful, higher-dimensional energy that has never before been felt on the Earth plane is on its way. This energy will immerse the planet, affecting an instant evolution of consciousness in the spiritually developed folks such as yourselves.
This new level of consciousness will help build a foundation for the acceptance of many dimensions and mainstream acceptance of spiritual beliefs and faith. Some astrologers are claiming people will believe in extraterrestrial life. This Uranus aspect is enough to create a global, paradigm shift.
People will accept new ways of thinking. There will be unique feelings in all us this day and beyond. This will be the start of new,
revolutionary advances in medicine, agriculture, communications, computer sciences, and more. Technology will transform the way we live and interact with one another forever.
Dr Szuson Wong Ph.D wrote this in a recent blog;
"The coming explosion in technology and innovation will spur levels of humanitarianism the world has never seen. A tremendous global movement to eradicate poverty, uplift the nations, and heal the ecosystems of the world will begin to manifest. Hundreds of millions of passionate, altruistic, like-minded souls will begin to connect, collaborate, and push projects to success that in years past would have never come to fruition.
I must warn that this astrological movement also signals the beginning of the greatest amount of political and economic turmoil the world has ever known. As a revolutionary spirit inflames the globe, we will experience wide-spread instability, manifesting in a variety of ways. The newly awakened society will begin to revolt in such massive ways that they will absolutely cripple 'the system.' First World nations will be swept with peaceful protests, sit-ins, and demonstrations while Third World nations will erupt with war-like violence. The world over, corrupt government agendas will come to a screeching halt by the will of the people.
Within the first year of this transit as people begin to awaken, it will become understood that the extraterrestrial elements that have been embedded deep in human society haven't been playing a positive role in our evolution as a civilization. This understanding will kindle a united, warrior-like attitude among global citizens that will serve as the most important driving factor in the coming revolution. Make no mistake that the power structure of Earth is currently 'operating from the shadows', but that the time of their authority has expired by Divine Decree and in perfect timing with Cosmic Order.
Intervention has and will continue to happen in strategic, surgical strikes that will ultimately lead to their defeat. This battle will be most intense during the summer months of 2012 as the planet Uranus squares the planet Pluto. By winter of 2012, it will become clear that humanity is free, After December 21st, 2012, as many of the world's most infamous prophecies come to a crossroads, mankind's Golden Age will finally commence.
An aspect of astrology that I find absolutely beautiful is that as events happen on a global or macrocosmic level, they also happen on a personal, microcosmic level - in exact synchronicity. This upcoming Uranus transit is no different, and soon we will all be going through our own personal revolutions, albeit in unique ways, all in accordance with God's Divine Plan for each of us. This is where the Sacred Science of Astrology can enlighten so brilliantly; it can identify the source and the expression of the coming revolutions in our lives, with mind-boggling accuracy.
On a cultural level people will start to openly embrace and seek out the profound wisdom of the Occult Sciences, which are rooted in the higher dimensional nature of existence. People will realize that there is a hidden, perfect order to creation. In times of great change, they will increasingly want to understand, at the deepest levels, exactly what their role is in this perfect symphony that they may navigate through the coming changes and manifest the highest outcomes. The best way to create personal security and abundance during the coming times will be identifying, accepting, and properly expressing one's personal revolutionary energy.
This personal revolution, which will manifest for many as the development of extraordinary, even Biblical-level spiritual and metaphysical gifts, will be the answer to all our present and future problems. It is up to each of us to totally embrace the shocking changes in order to fulfill our destinies in the coming global revolution. Those who succumb to fear and resist these changes will do so at their own peril. Those who embrace the changes will skyrocket to prominence and success. This can be a very frightening thought to entertain, which brings me to the significance of Uranus being in the constellation of Aries, the archetype of the warrior.
Attunement to archetypal energies is an extremely important concept to understand and integrate. In simplistic terms, one must 'vibe' with the virtues of the sign to manifest the greatest outcomes of the transit or placement. With Uranus being in Aries, we can manifest magnificence in our lives by cultivating and expressing bravery, confidence, fearlessness, independence, and novelty in the area of our life (and natal chart) where Aries energy lies. This is a time where a warrior will be born in all of us, though it's up to us to decide what to do with this new energy.
As this fiery, Uranian energy blasts through the collective consciousness, the values of people will be changed and elevated in an instant. The lust for the trivial will be transmuted into the yearning for spiritual and metaphysical talents. Materialism will be replaced by spiritualism. The so-called celebrities of today will fade into obscurity as a new breed of celebrities, deriving their power from spiritual development and humanitarian passion will be catapulted into the limelight. These will be the heroes and heroines of the New Age that is being birthed before our eyes."
Thank you Dr. Wong. Amazing energy and an amazing time to be alive. Many of you who are spiritually awakened will no doubt feel this shift coming and especially on March 11, Wear your moldavite you have bought from me on the website or at one of the shows. Moldavite is designed for times such as these in mind and help you with the frequency shifts since it compliments the shifts that are happening March 11.
I will be speaking more about this time period and how long the transit will last and what to expect this spring and summer at the shows around the country specially at the Cosmic Connections Convention later this month in Lansing.
