The Most Important Thing

Sindi meditating

Meditation has helped me to feel better, create changes, have more confidence and be happier in my life.

There are many things that are important to me. Just as there have been many experiences that have played integral parts and turning points in my life. One was the discovery of meditation. Not just meditation, but a particular style of meditation that helps the soul – the spiritual being – work consciously with the physical body. I was blessed enough to learn this form of meditation when I was 18 years old. With that said, please know that it is never too late to learn to meditate! I believe we are presented with information when we need it and are ready for it.

At the time that I was introduced to this form of meditation, I was headed down a very dark road. I was drinking alcohol to the point of blacking out, I was often in a state of depression and although I had grand ambitions, I lacked self-esteem. I wanted to accomplish certain things in my life, but didn’t believe that I could. My fears, doubts and emotional pain formed a sad state of reality for me. I wondered if I would ever be happy.

There are many forms of meditation. Instead of staring at the light of a candle outside of  yourself, as I was taught as a child, the style of meditation I practice and teach uses techniques to help you get in touch with your light within.

When I began the Meditation I class at the CDM Spiritual Center, I really didn’t know what to expect. I had heard the term meditation, but my previous introduction, as a young child didn’t resonate with me. I was bored with the idea of staring at a candle and lost interest soon after trying to sit and focus. I didn’t “get it” at that point in my life. While I was drawn to spiritual practices including attending church from the time I was a young child, I didn’t find anything that “clicked” for me. I have always had a strong awareness of God and the spiritual realm. This helped me to know that there was more than what we physically could see. Unseen, spiritual presences have always been very real for me. They are real. We just don’t live in a world that usually validates them as such.

Everything is energy. You are energy. Your aura, the energy field around you is energy. Your body is energy. Everything is energy!

Although I didn’t have many expectations of what was then presented as an eight-week class, I was as curious as an apathetic teenager could be. Before talking with the meditation teacher and signing up for the class, I received an aura healing. This was an interesting experience. I learned that day that your aura is the energy field around you and that an aura healing is a non-touch healing. It was and is a cleansing of your aura, chakras and energy system. I watched the person giving the healing walk around me assisting me to move energy and let go of whatever energy I was ready to. I remember feeling some tingles, which was me experiencing energy being stimulated and moving.

The Meditation I class I took changed my life. I love sharing this information with others. Nothing is for everyone, but I can’t help but share with others what has helped me. Maybe this form of meditation will help you too!

The day of my first class arrived! I was in the class with another young woman, who was about six years older than me. We instantly liked each other and got along great! I thought the teacher was fun and validating too. I loved everything that I was learning. It was all so real to me! All of the techniques including grounding, centering, releasing and running energy made quite an impact on me. I began to feel better, lighter and brighter. My depression and apathy starting changing into enthusiasm and joy. I was becoming a happier person. The changes that were occurring within me were truly phenomenal and it started happening in a very short period of time! The changes I was making internally led to changes externally in my physical reality. As I mentioned, I started to feel better and became happier. I additionally quit drinking cold turkey. I changed how I spent my time and who I spent it with and started becoming excited about life. Truly excited!

If I was to sum up what that meditation class gave me, it was hope. It showed me there was a different way to experience life. I now had tools to help me out of any situation. Techniques to support me throughout my life, whether dark or light, happy or sad or simply the day-to-day experiences that we all have.

I’ve spent this blog post sharing with you the important role that meditation has played in my life. The title of this blog post is, “The Most Important Thing.” You are probably thinking that the most important thing to me is meditation. While it is extremely important and an integral part of my life, if I am to choose the most important thing that I have ever learned, or in actuality, relearned, is that I am spirit. This concept was introduced to me at CDM Spiritual Center where I learned meditation. The idea that I am spirit was revisited, confirmed and experienced first-hand in every meditation class. Why is this the most important thing? Have you ever learned this? Do you understand what it means? I am spirit. You are spirit. We are all spirit. Whether we are housed in human bodies, cat, dog, bird, rabbit, fish, lizard or giraffe bodies. We don’t have a spirit or soul. We ARE spirits. We ARE souls. There is a difference.

Nor do we become spirit when when our body dies. We already are and always will be, spirit. We are NOT our bodies. Our bodies are our vessels to manifest through as spirit, spiritual beings, the souls that we are. It is through meditation that I came to fully understand what it means to be spirit. I continue to strengthen my relationship with myself, as spirit and my physical body through meditation. As I get to know myself and my uniqueness through meditation, I am also able to use the meditative, visualization techniques to let go of that which I no longer want. This process makes more room for what I do want in the present. Physicists have proven that everything is energy. When we let go of energy we don’t want, we make more room for energy we do want. Whether I want to let go of pain, fear, doubt, energy from the past, uncomfortable emotions or change habits, patterns, beliefs or simply enjoy life more fully, these easy-to-use, powerful meditation techniques can help. Out with the old, in with the new!

I wanted to write this blog post because I love sharing with others what has helped me. Meditation and the awareness that comes with it has helped me and continues to help me every day. Many of you have heard me say this and I may have even recommended that you consider adding meditation to your life. But, as I mentioned above, if I were to choose one thing above all else as the most important thing that I have learned in this lifetime and that I want to share with others is that I am spirit. You are spirit. We are all spirit. Again, you are not your body. Your physical body is your vessel, your vehicle, your temple, the home for you, the spirit. The spirit that is you. The spiritual being that is you. The soul that is you. YOU are spirit!

What is an Aura and More Interesting Answers

You may be familiar with the term, aura. You may even understand the word and what it is. I would like to share my perspective of the almighty aura!

An aura, in the way I am referring to it, is an energy field. All things have auras. An aura is the energy field around “a thing,” whether a person, animal, tree, house, car or any living thing or inanimate object.

Everything is energy. You, me, the ground you walk on, the air you breathe, the food you eat, your emotions, words, thoughts and absolutely everything is a form of energy. Physicists have scientifically proven this.

Just as everything else is energy, so is an aura, which emanates from the object it  surrounds. Auras that surround the bodies and energy systems of animals and humans contain a great deal of energy and information. There are seven main layers of an aura that I focus on during an aura reading with a human or animal. There are also seven main chakras, or energy information centers that are a part of an individual’s energy system. The layers of the aura relate to the chakras. Each chakra contains specific information and has a unique purpose. For more information on the chakra system I suggest the book, “Chakras: Key to Spiritual Opening”, by Mary Ellen Flora. However, before delving into that masterpiece of a book, I recommend reading Flora’s first book or ebook, “Meditation: Key to Spiritual Awakening.” After reading her meditation book, you may find it beneficial to practice the techniques in that book, as well as on the accompanying “Meditation: Key to Spiritual Awakening” CD or audio download before moving further through her series.

Do you want to learn more about your aura? You may enjoy receiving an aura reading, which provides information about what is going on in a variety of aspects of your life; how you are relating to the physical reality, your emotions, communication, clairvoyance and more insights. I offer long distance sessions for anybody, anywhere, as well as in-person sessions throughout Washington state and Oregon, as well as the different states I travel to.

I will be in San Diego, California very soon. I am pre-booking in-person sessions for the first week of March, 2019. Contact me by email, text or phone at 360-601-4358 with questions and to schedule your aura reading and Q & A with me. Thank you!

Pet Loss Support

Saying goodbye to a loved one, animal or human can be challenging, regardless of the situation. It can be a healing process that is ridden with shock and often overwhelming emotions. It can seem difficult to function during these times. It is important to remember that grieving is a process. Some days and moments are more excruciating than others.

To support you during your time of grief I offer animal communication sessions and psychic readings that give insight into what is going on with your departed friend. I also offer recorded, personalized guided meditations that incorporate animal communication. The meditation techniques that I share can help to release pain and uncomfortable emotions. Meditation and psychic readings can help validate that your companion still exists, as spirit. These sessions can also help remind you that you can communicate with the soul after it passes on, leaving behind the body that served as its vessel while on earth.

You are spirit. I am spirit. All humans and animals are spirit. Spirits in bodies. When the body dies the spirit continues. Spirit, soul, spiritual being are all words that mean the same thing. The important piece to acknowledge is that we are spirit. We are not our bodes. When living on earth, we have bodies. But again, we are not our bodies.

At the time of death, the soul leaves the physical plane and enters the spiritual realm. Depending on their journey, they may reincarnate into another body to continue their focused learning on earth. They also may take a break from life on earth and spend time in the non-physical spiritual plane.

I offer in-person pet loss support groups in the Oregon and Washington state areas, as well as other parts of the country that I travel to during the year. My remote, long distance services are available to anyone, anywhere. Whether you are seeking communication through a psychic reading or could benefit from meditation or energy healing, I am here to help you. Psychic means spirit, or of the soul. My psychic readings are soul to soul communication sessions. If you are interested in receiving a reading, healing, animal communication session or guided meditation, I am available. If you would like to be notified about my upcoming pet loss support groups let me know. I can be reached by phone and email.

Psychic Readings

 

During a reading there is always physical space between us. This also assists with the energetic space.

During a psychic reading there is always physical space between us. This also assists with the energetic or spiritual space, which allows for clearer communication.

While, like with any word, you may find multiple definitions, psychic means, “of the soul” or “spirit.” This is the definition that best describes my relationship to the word and what I do. A psychic reading by me is a reading of the soul. It is a reading by me, as spirit. Me, the spiritual being.

Another way to describe what I do is in terms of energy. Even physicists agree that everything is energy. Our emotions, opinions, likes, dislikes, experiences and memories are all stored within us, as energy. Although our thoughts are also energy, I don’t claim to read minds. Instead, I read energy. So although I can tune into your thoughts, it is from a spiritual, instead of an intellectual perspective.

I don’t “figure out” what you are thinking, feeling or going through. I use my spiritual ability of clairvoyance to “see” what is going on. Clairvoyance is “clear seeing” or the ability to see clearly. It is our spiritual ability of seeing or “reading” energy. Clairvoyance is an ability that we all have an use, whether we acknowledge it as such or not. Other spiritual abilities that I have developed and use include my ability to communicate telepathically and feel energy with my hands. These are characteristics that we all have also. We don’t live in a world that, as a whole, validates or encourages these abilities. Because of this, we tend to explain these experiences as other things, such as coincidence, our imagination or they are simply left as unexplained weirdness or phenomena. They can also lead to fear for our bodies because spiritual or psychic experiences can be difficult to intellectually comprehend. Though our body and capable brains may try! Hollywood cinema has done a good job of attaching fear to spiritual abilities and psychic happenings through its presentation in scary movies. Writers, such as, Stephen King, have contributed here also.

While clairvoyance is seeing energy, telepathic communication is “hearing” energy. It is non-verbal, non-physically audible communication. While I “hear” words, I actually am “hearing” energy that I interpret into words. I speak English, so I interpret energy into English so that it makes sense to my body and I can then share the information with you. However, energy can be interpreted into any language.

 Here I am giving Wyn a non-touch aura healing. It is an energy cleansing. It helps to cleanse your energy channels and chakras, which does impact the body and how it feels. I like to think of it, as a spiritual massage!

In addition to seeing and hearing energy, I “feel” energy. I feel energy with my hands while I am giving someone an aura healing, female healing or head channel cleansing. I feel energy when I am doing any type of healing with my hands. Clairsentience is the ability to feel or sense others’ emotions or feelings. While I have this ability, clearer communication and interpretation occurs when I use my clairvoyance to determine what another is feeling. It allows for each to have their own space vs. merging, which can lead to overwhelm, confusion, irritation and fatigue.

Now days, I am most known for my work with animals. However, I started my reading, healing and communication work with people. It was my love of animals that motivated me to make them a formal part of my practice. I now work not only with pets, but also farm animals and wild animals in and out of captivity. I also read people with and without animals in their life. Although I don’t generally use the term, “medium” to describe myself, I do read the energy of and telepathically communicate with souls that have passed on. Yes. I see dead people.

If you are interested in my services, either in person or long distance, I can be reached by calling 619-797-0705 or by email at sindi@petpsychic.com. I also practice and teach meditation. If you are interested in learning easy to use (anyone can meditate!) visualization techniques to help you relax, rejuvenate, improve your sleep, reduce stress and consciously change your life, I can help!  Ask me about my Meditation Club, which provides instruction and support, as you journey through life. Enjoy!

IMG_20150203_182123289

On the road with my Rock! No matter where I go, there I am! I can read your aura, past lives and other energy regarding relationships, work, your animal friends or anything else that you may want feedback on.

Even physicists agree that everything is energy. Our thoughts, emotions, experiences, memories, all of these things are stored as energy. What I do is read, feel, hear and otherwise sense energy using my developed spiritual a.k.a. psychic abilities. There is no time or space for spirit and our spiritual abilities. So no matter where the energy seems to be physically, I can read it spiritually, psychically or energetically, depending on your word preference.

I am spirit, you are spirit, we are all spirit, spiritual beings, souls. Clairvoyance, or clear sight is a spiritual ability that I use to see or read energy during a psychic reading. Other abilities I use include telepathy or non-vocal, non-physically audible communication, as well as my abilites to feel and otherwise sense energy.

There is no time or space for spirit, so I can read, heal, communicate and otherwise tune into energy no matter where I am physically!

There is no time or space for spirit, so I can read, heal, communicate and otherwise tune into energy no matter where I am physically! No limits, except that I only speak English. So if your native tongue is another language, you may need an interpreter!

Because there is no time or space for spirit, there are no limits. When I tune in spiritually, I am not limited by the fact you are in a different city, state or country. I am able to do the reading and then obtain the same information, as if you were sitting in front of me.

Want to experience a long distance reading for yourself and/or your animal friends? The fastest way to reach me right now is by phone. Feel free to call me at 619-797-0705.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day and Happy Birthday, Grandma!

Grandma Sally

Happy Birthday to my beautiful Grandma Sally. She would have been 94 years old today.

Today would have been my Grandma Sally’s 94th birthday. She passed away in 2012. We had a unique Grandma/Granddaughter relationship. She was not only my Grandma, but also one of my best friends. I loved hearing her laugh, so I would often crack jokes. I performed stand up comedy for her in her living room for over two years before I ever stepped on a San Diego stage. She was the best audience ever! She had quite a sense of humor too and would sometimes shock me with what came out of her mouth! She was still my Grandma after all! But after the shock left my laugh would linger and every time I thought and think of what she said, it made and makes me laugh.

Grandma Sally cried tears of joy and happiness when President Obama was elected. Being born in 1920, I imagine she may have thought such a day would never happen when the United States would elect an African American president. Her favorite movie was, “Brokeback Mountain.” She said to me once, if anyone sees that movie and still has a problem with gay people, well… there’s just no hope for them!” Her favorite TV show was “The Sopranos.” She would proudly tell her friends it was, “the unedited version.” She was naturally compassionate and accepting of others. She truly liked people and sincerely appreciated differences. She had two “boyfriends,” both named Tony. I called them her “Two Tonys.” Celebrity Chef, Anthony Bourdain and the character, Tony Soprano. She liked the bad boys!

Grandma kissing favorite bear.

My Grandma loved bears. Here is one of her favorites that I gave her.

Like me, my grandma loved animals. Her absolute favorite being bears. After moving down here in 2007, each year on Christmas I would get her a new bear. I am blessed to have the teddy bear collection that we created together. I associate warm memories with it.

More than any person I have ever met, she appreciated the beauty of the moment. In a short walk from her front door to her car, she would notice how blue the sky looked, how pretty the flowers were and would stop to listen to the birds sing. Happy Birthday, sweet Grandma and Happy St. Patrick’s Day! She loved being born on St. Patrick’s Day. She would say, “everybody celebrates my birthday!” So today, whether or not you will be formally celebrating, I encourage you to stop and experience and appreciate the moment. I hope it puts a smile on your face the way it did for my Grandma Sally. I love you so, so much Grandma. Thank you for all you taught me and continue to teach me. I miss having you here with me physically, but am so glad I know that you, the soul, will always exist.

I haven’t updated my comedy website since before she passed away. I still have our true story that became one of my jokes on the front page, if you would like to read it.

1.8.2013 – Happy New Year!

A belated Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you and yours! I hope you enjoyed the holiday season and that 2013 is off to a great start for you. I have been enjoying it so far and feel excited about starting fresh.

The first event of the new year for me will be the Blessing of the Animals Event at Old Town San Diego’s Historical Park. The event is Sunday, January 20 from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm. I will be giving a presentation on animal communication at the event. I am not sure yet what time my talk will be. I will also have a booth and will be offering short energy readings and animal communication session for donations benefiting the Tijuana River Valley Animal Rescue. Stop by and say hello!

You can also pick up some complimentary treats for your dog at my booth at the event. Healthy treats will be provided at the Blessing of the Animals festival, courtesy of the Point Loma Pet Pantry. I actually work at this pet supply store part time. I used to work there several years ago, as well as Paw Country. Both holistically focused, independently owned pet supply stores are now owned by the same people. I am glad to be back and find working at these pet stores to be very fulfilling. Since I see so many more people while at work there, I have even more opportunity to help more people and their pets. This makes me very happy!

To learn more about me and my services, in addition to visiting the various pages on this site, you may also wish to visit www.WildTame.com, which has additional information. You can also contact me at sindi@apetpsychic.com or 619-797-0705. And again… a very Happy New Year to you! – Pet Psychic Sindi Somers

11.13.2012 – Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots

Sometimes, in order to avoid uncomfortable emotions we may want to avoid acknowledging the aging process. Whether it is the changes in our own body or illness, pain and challenges in our loved ones; both human and animal.

Death is inevitable for the body. Souls, however live on. I personally believe in reincarnation.

Over the weekend I saw one of the most amazing stage presentations I have ever experienced. The World Premier of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. My sense is that it is most certainly Broadway bound and it will win awards. Yoshimi is phenomenal! The show demonstrates collaborative creativity at its highest level featuring stellar acting, directing, costuming and staging. It is truly an artistic, visual, technical, musical masterpiece featuring songs by The Flaming Lips. One of the lyrics that moved me, was from the song, Do You Realize??

I am including a link below that includes The Flaming Lips song lyrics for Do You Realize?? in their entirety.

LINK TO THE FLAMING LIPS SONG LYRICS, “DO YOU REALIZE??”

Just as flowers are born, grow, bloom and later wither and die, so does the body.

Basically the song’s lyrics highlight the obvious. That which us humans, so often want to ignore and deny. The fact that all of us, every single person and animal, one day will die.

When discussing or writing about this topic, I find myself even wanting to avoid using the word die or death or dying. Instead I often choose less charged phrases, such as passing, passing on, passed on, lost or having to say goodbye to.

I believe it is important to focus in the present. To enjoy our life and live it to its fullest while fulfilling our individual, unique purpose to the best of our ability. I also believe that we are souls. Immortal spirits that even when our bodies cease, we, the soul lives on. However, as long as we are physically present here on earth we have bodies. Bodies that feel and experience different temperatures, pain, grief, sadness and anger, as well as pleasure, joy and happiness.

Bodies feel. They just do.

When an animal or human that we care about dies, we that are left here on the physical plane grieve. We are sad. We miss our friend. What I have learned is that we each grieve differently. Some show no physical signs of emotion, despair or change, while others can hardly function.

I know some people whose beloved pet has died and they have yet to ever get a new companion animal over 10 years later. I also know others who have gotten another pet just days after saying goodbye to the one they lost.

Everyone is different in how they respond to death and dying. Your concepts about spirit and body and life and death may be the same, similar or completely different than mine. Although I believe the soul lives on, in regards to our experience here on earth, one thing is for sure. It may make your body sad to think this thought, but it is true. Just as The Flaming Lips sing so bluntly, everyone you know someday will die.

I encourage you to spend time with those important to you. Cherish those you love and love those you cherish. If you have lost a loved one and would like to check in and have some soul to soul communication contact me at 619-797-0705 or sindi@apetpsychic.com. Or perhaps you are struggling with loss and you are having a difficult time letting go and moving forward. I offer energy healing, psychic reading and also teach meditative, self-healing visualization techniques to assist with this process. Although you can not physically turn back the hands of time, go backwards and actually change your past, you do have the power to heal yourself and change how you feel about your past. I provide meditation, healing, reading and communication services to anybody, anywhere on the planet. If you or a human or animal you love are facing a health challenge or other potential stressful situation, I can help with that too. I don’t replace medical doctors or veterinarians. Instead, I see myself as an alternative healing option working alongside the medical profession. Because I am not a member of the medical field, I can not diagnose diseases or illness. I suggest ruling out and/or discovering any medical conditions before pursuing an alternative energy healing, reading or similar modality.

9.21.2012 – Getting Space

Sometimes we need physical space to be well.

Today a kind person, actually a stranger, called me to tell me that she noticed my phone number was wrong on the banner of this website. I have looked a the banner many times, not noticing this obvious, and problematic typo. I am grateful to her for taking the time to let me know. It also presented the important reminder that having space is important.

What do I mean by that? As an outside observer browsing my site for the first time, she noticed a discrepancy between the phone number on the banner and where it is listed elsewhere on the site. I joked to her that that is why I need an editor to help me with my work! A second set of eyes to be a more objective observer and notice things I may not.

It is important to remember to allow for energetic space, especially in our close relationships.

When we work closely on a project or are have a close relationship and/or emotional attachment to a person or animal, we may miss something. It may be, as in this case, a typo or it may be an attempted communication that we aren’t clearing receiving.

We need space to effectively communicate. The more tightly we hold on to a person, animal, idea or something we want to create in our life, the more difficult it is to actually receive and enjoy it. The more challenging it also is to receive the information being communicated. When there is no available space in between there is nowhere for the energy and communication to go. The connection is to tight to allow for energy to flow and messages to be clearly given and received.

During a reading there is always physical space between us. This also assists to create necessary energetic space.

Someone asked me recently for tips on how to more clearly communicate with a cat in their life. This kind hearted person is very emotionally attached to the cat and concerned about her well being and welfare. I suggested she consider meditating to help her to be in the present moment and let go for clearer communication.

The form of meditation that I teach and practice helps to focus our attention into the present moment. The more in the present moment we can be, the clearer our communication. Animals are in the present moment. Our own physical bodies are in the present moment. That which we refer to as the physical reality, our home, car and workplace are all in the present moment.

The more that we have our energy and attention in the present, the more clearly we can communicate and the more effectively we can create what we want in our life.The form of meditation that I teach also helps us each to have our own space. It assists individuals to get to know themselves and their energy. In turn it helps them to recognize others’ energy.

Creating space does not mean being unloving. In fact, the more space there is, the more room for love to be experienced. It is a challenge for all of us to find our way of being close while still having space. I don’t know if there is ever an end to the learning.

You are welcome to contact me if you are interested in learning meditation techniques to assist you in your communication with animals, people and yourself. I also have an email mailing list. I send out information and keep people updated on events, classes and other happenings. If you would like to receive my newsletter and notifications, email me your name and email address and a note that you want to be added on.

Thanks for reading! Have a great day! -Sindi
