‘The long, light days of summer give us a great opportunity to connect with the natural world - to let the healing power of light simply seep into our bones.’
June is here, and with it, the oh so wonderful, long long hours of sunlight which come with the mid-year solstice here in the northern hemisphere. I was incredibly fortunate recently to be able to visit the standing stones of Callanish, on the Isle of Lewis, just west of Skye, in the outer Hebrides. I was also fortunate enough to visit a little before the summer crowds arrived. And so I had the opportunity to sit right in among the stones, to meditate, and just simply to breathe in the amazing energy in that place.
Wilderness places always have a ‘special something’ about them - the feeling that even though there may be no other living person nearby, the space around us is crackling and alive with the vitality of the universe. Callanish was exactly like this! The stones themselves seem to have their own identities. I relate this to you, not because I’m on some kind of commission from Historic Scotland! (By the way - it is free to visit Callanish anyway!) Rather, because visiting this kind of place has the power to really connect us with the land, as the people of ancient times did.
The long days of summer give us a great opportunity to connect with the natural world - to let the healing power of light simply seep into our bones. Even if we’re not on vacation, just ‘being’ for a few minutes during this time of year can be a very powerful experience.
Reader Spotlight... Lynne Leslie At Origin Psychics, we pride ourselves on the professionalism, sensitivity and compassion of our readers. Hence, our series which puts our readers ‘Under the Spotlight’. This month, our attention falls to Lynne Leslie...
I have always had an interest in energy – both healing and psychic energy - believing that there is more to life than we can see with our eyes. For a long time, I remember feeling confused when communicating with people when they would say one thing, but I would sense deep down they meant something else. I didn’t realise at the time, but I was picking up on the energy of what they wanted and meant, rather than the actual words they were saying. I started training in energy work, initially in Spiritual Healing, followed by qualifications in Reiki, Sekhem, and Quantum Touch. When practising these therapies I started having experiences where I was being guided in my healing work and could often sense that I was not alone – clients often commented on feeling another person was there with me in the room. The strong energy link between myself and my guide will always be one of my most treasured psychic experiences. I realized I was picking up on the energy of other people’s thoughts
and feelings and I was starting to get communication for clients from their loved ones who had passed over. This was when I decided I wanted to focus on psychic development. I had already done psychic work with animals and my most memorable experience in this respect was linking in with a young pony which belonged to a family who had recently experienced the death of a baby. As soon as I linked with the pony I experienced a massive wave of deep sadness – it was carrying the sadness of the family. The depth of feeling was so profound, that even as an animal lover who believes that animals have emotions, I was stunned. The work I have done in healing therapies has heightened my sensitivity to energy which helps me pick up what is happening in a client’s life in a psychic reading, and makes me especially sensitive to energy blocks – either within a person’s body or in their life. When people find it difficult to see their way out of a situation, I am able to help them see where the block is, then they can decide what action they are able to take to shift it, to get to where they want to be. Because of my background in healing therapies, I treat each psychic reading as a healing session, and before each reading, I prepare by setting up a sacred space for the reading to take place in – by visualising myself and the client in a protected space, and then creating a psychic link with them by making an energy connection between us both. When I make this connection I often pick up a sense of how the client is feeling even before I even pick up the phone. I also set my intention
Lynne Leslie - Aries that if the client wants it, they can receive distant healing during or after the reading, and it then flows naturally if it is needed. I have had several clients who had so many things going on in their lives that they were immobilised, unable to make decisions on anything. One of my strengths lies in being able to unpick the confusion and see what is really going on – to clarify things for them, so that they can easily make decisions which will empower them and allow them to move on, rather than remain stuck. When I do a reading, my intention is always to help clients find a path which is empowering, no matter how dire their circumstances might seem. I link into the energy of the situation and translate what is going on, looking at the possible different ways to deal with it. I look at who clients are at a soul level, as we often lose sight of this during difficult times. I see in clients the strengths they have forgotten they even have, and which will help them move through the difficulties they are experiencing, empowering them to make positive changes in their lives. 3
The Power of Doing Absolutely Nothing It is a very common experience when facing emotional challenges, that we feel quite powerless. The decision of a partner to leave, the decision of our employer to ‘downsize’ - it’s true that we have no control over these circumstances. But as Lynne Leslie explains, this does not mean that we are POWERLESS!
The most beneficial part of this for her was that we were able to In a recent reading, a client of mine was take emotion out of the equation, and look purely at the facts. going through a very challenging We temporarily put aside her family’s views, so that we could period in her life. She had major changes look at the situation on its own merits and this took a huge going on, and a lot of these changes were weight off of her shoulders - I could feel her relax into the coming together at the same time. Not reading more when this happened. only that, by many of these changes demanded decisions from her. She was just By giving her the different perspective which the psychic starting to heal from a major illness, and on insights brought to the surface, she could stand back and top of that, she was being pressured by her see more clearly what was really going on. It quickly family to take action in a particular kind of became obvious that in fact the best decision she could way. She herself was not sure about which way to make was to do nothing - to take no action on the go, but with the external pressure, it was making situation that had been bothering her. This may seem it even more difficult for her to choose. like a poor outcome to a psychic reading, but in fact it can sometimes be the most empowering decision During her reading, it became clear that she felt someone can make. It is not a “cop-out” but a she had to take some kind of action - it was expected choice that has been carefully and clearly arrived at, of her. She hadn’t realized though that she was being and the relief experienced is immense. The emotionally pushed by her family to make the choice difference between putting off making a decision, that THEY wanted. This combination was creating a and making a decision to do nothing is huge. foggy mind for her, a state in which she couldn’t Putting it off means the pressure continues, and actually decide on anything. Needless to say, her anxiety worry and anxiety is suppressed, sucking up all levels were escalating! our energy. Taking the decision to do nothing, means we have faced the problem Together we worked through the different layers of the head on, worked through it and now situation, pulling them apart one by one, using the reading understand that taking no action is the most to show us anything relevant which was underlying the appropriate outcome. Once we have gone circumstances in which she found herself. 4
through this process, we can let go of the hold it had on us, we don’t need to suppress the anxiety, we don’t have it lurking in the back of our minds, but still in our consciousness, pulling down our energy each day that we avoid looking at it. The lady in this particular reading was so relieved to have this clarity - she had been stuck - both mentally and energetically - as she tried to figure it out. Afterwards she feel she had been set free - she knew where she was going, what she was doing (and not doing!) and her family were also relieved that the tension between them had dissolved.

Keira Knightley & the Klaxon K ei ra K n i g ht le y & J a m es R i g ht o n B ec om e E ng a ge d
This relationship was no ‘slow burn’, and the Wheel of Fortune appearing in the past position would suggest that their meeting was one of those special, ‘immediate connection’ type of moments!
Well it was announced late in May that actress Keira Knightley and her musician boyfriend of 15 months, James Righton, have become engaged. The couple have kept their relationship particularly private – well, as private as you can, when one of you is a world famous Hollywood actress, and the other the keyboardist of a hot Indie band. We thought it would be interesting to put their relationship under a different kind of 'spotlight', and see what the Tarot has to say about where Keira and James are going in their love life. I've done a three card spread, and what's appeared are: The Wheel of Fortune, the Three of Wands, and the Queen of Coins. The little bit of information we have on this relationship is that Keira and James have managed to spend an enormous amount of time together, right from when they met. This relationship was no 'slow burn', and the Wheel of Fortune appearing in the past position, would suggest that their meeting was one of those special, 'immediate connection' type of moments. This wasn't just chemistry - there's the sense of that magical kind of feeling, of experiencing a kind of instinct between them, almost as if they'd known each other before. The Wheel of Fortune provides a really powerful sense of strength in the relationship between Keira and James, and I feel this is a pretty secure relationship. Their lifestyles will obviously demand a very secure bond, and the Wheel of Fortune is a really good sign that they've had this so far in their relationship.
I feel too they that both spontaneously dived into the emotions this relationship brought up in them - I feel there was a moment when Keira in particular could have stepped back and allowed her rational self to rule. She'd only recently come out of a five year relationship with her former boyfriend, actor Rupert Friend. But the Wheel of Fortune tells us that she listened to her deepest heart, and made a conscious choice to step forward into this relationship with James. The three of Wands in the focus is a beautiful message about this engagement! It speaks of a confirmation that this is the right step for Keira and James to take, and at the right time. Their dreams are becoming a reality, and there is no reason not to simply push forwards and into a deeper level of commitment in their relationship. Whilst I don't get the feeling that this will be a particularly long engagement, I feel in the Three of Wands that they'll take their time, and really enjoy the experience of planning their wedding, and this next stage of their life together. And in the future position, we have the Queen of Coins. On a fairly superficial level, this particular Queen tells us that this relationship will be solid and secure as it develops. But there's much more to it than
that! The Queen of Coins also points towards a deeply fulfilling emotional life, and that Keira and James will have no difficulty in communicating their true feelings with one another. But I feel another aspect too - I feel that the Queen of Coins hints at a kind of 'muse' quality to their relationship. It's a very subtle thing, that special quality that seeps into the expression of someone who is especially creative. It's not easy to quantify, but it's a depth which emerges in how an artist expresses themselves. I feel that these two are really good for each other, and on so many levels. Clearly there is passion and the romance between them is especially obvious right now. But I feel they're good for each other in other ways. Here's hoping that they're really happy together, and that we can enjoy the effects of that happiness too, in the work they produce in the future!

Four Steps to a Fantastic Psychic Reading B y Ed gar D a n ma r - Or i gi n Ps yc hic When people call for psychic readings, they do not realize that there are practical things that they can do to experience psychic readings that are transformational, insightful and supportive in helping them experience more meaning and fulfilment in their lives. Psychic readings can help you gain clarity and understanding about your life, and how to make choices that are in alignment with your soul potential. Psychic readings are not just about knowing about what will happen in the future, they are an opportunity to experience healing and spiritual self-realization. It is a shame that many people do not recognize the therapeutic benefits of experiencing a psychic reading. This is the reason why I have been inspired to write about what you can do on a practical level, to increase
the chances of experiencing a fulfilling Psychic reading experience. Step One - Take some time to prepare for a Psychic Reading:
The single most significant factor in getting an authentic psychic reading is to ask yourself what you are willing to receive. It is important to ask yourself, are you ready to receive guidance. Perhaps you are not willing to hear things that might not match what you are ready to hear. Sometimes we might not be aware that we are not ready to know the truth about a situation. We might think that we already know â€˜the truthâ€™. We might be just looking for someone to confirm it. Sometimes the information that comes through a psychic might be the exact insight that your friend or family member has shared with you. This only reaffirms that we need to hear more about what we are avoiding - to face what our external reality is revealing, through our loved ones. Step Two - Physically relax with some deep breathing exercises
If you come to the reading grasping a fear about something, you can also prepare yourself beforehand, firstly by relaxing your body as much as possible. And by lifting up your fears to Spirit, you release thoughts about fearful potentials. These two steps support you
in the reading process to determine the true potential in that fearful environment and to discover practical steps you can choose to metamorphose it into courage and a greater self- awareness of your innate natural wisdom. Step Three - Be willing to work with the ‘Law of Attraction’
Healing Mind Space by Lynne Leslie
Most of us are familiar with the teachings of the Law of Attraction. We can also set an intention to have a psychic reading that will allow us clear insights, be uplifting, and reveal positive changes that are about to happen.
Find a quiet space where you wonʼt be disturbed - you might like to light a candle and dedicate it to your healing, at the same time asking for your healing space to be protected.
Step Four - Prepare your Space
If you are calling from your home to have a psychic reading, you can get your room ready by lighting a candle, burning some incense and sitting quietly in meditation. Some people feel comfortable to ask Angels or Enlightened beings to support their purpose in having a fantastic psychic reading.
Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting on the bank of a small stream, on a flat, warm rock. You are aware of the sounds of nature all around you, the birds, the sound of the water, the rustle of the leaves. Feel yourself blending with your surroundings, you are part of the scene, rather than separate.
If you wish to, set your spiritual intent to be open to the highest level of reality that your soul can receive at this point, and you agree to surrender your list of serious questions, you increase the chances of having a psychic reading supports this sacred Intent.
As your energy settles, start to become aware of the sensations in your body - are there areas of tightness, are you holding anxiety and tension in your shoulders? Does your head ache?
Basically we can be more involved in having a Psychic reading that leaves us feeling like it has really helped us to feel lighter and more positive about our near future. I truly hope these words help others reap the full benefits of having a psychic reading.
You intuitively know that the stream has the power to cleanse and heal as it flows. Feel its cleansing energy move through you, taking with it the tension, anxiety, stress or anger you have been holding onto. Take as long as you need with this. This is healing time for you.
by Edgar Danmer Origin Psychic
Feel or see the dark, tense energy gently leaving your body, flowing away with the stream, back to mother earth. You may feel a surge of emotion as this happens, this is ok, it is just the energy shifting.
Edgar's strength is in intuitively seeing and recognizing people's potential and helping them move in that direction, aligning them with their soul's path, using his psychic skills and with spirit guidance.
When you feel the cleansing is complete, feel and see the sunʼs warming rays filling you with revitalising energy, and when you are ready, take your time to gently bring your awareness back into the room, moving your fingers and toes, until you are ready to open your eyes. You will be aware of how calm and relaxed you feel, and will be able to hold onto this beautiful positive energy as you return to your daily activities.

Mercury - Messenger of the Gods
Mercury is the messenger of the gods, co-ruler of Gemini and Virgo. Hermes is Mercury in Greek Mythology, and it is also known as the planet of communication and the God of Thieves. It is interesting too, that the Egyptians called Hermes Thoth and his role was to be the transporter of souls. Mercury’s function is to use rational thought to achieve its goals. Yet it is not necessarily connected to any ethical code, hence the same mental process that could help you to write a great classic work of literature, could also lay out the plan to a flawless robbery. How Mercury aspects the other planets in the chart, denotes how these characteristics will manifest. It can be a highly unemotional planet, but with a stroke of genius attached to it.
GEMINI Modality – Mutable Element – Air Planetary Ruler – Mercury • Talkative • Sociable & Changeable • Flexible You adapt quickly to new situations, and you make friends easily, and from any walk of life. You are clever and witty, and happiest when you are able to freely express yourself. Communication for you is as vital as the air you breathe.
Mercury also rules communication and coordination. All sensory information from the unconscious and subconscious within you need to be understood. Mercury’s greatest gift is the ability to analyze, sort things out, and make sense of things. The positive aspects of Mercury are inquisitiveness, a curious nature, and once more communication. The negative traits, can manifest as being very highly strung or nervous, nit-picky, indecisive, and overly technical. In the astrology chart, Mercury colors the planets it aspects with a desire for exchange of information. Also the planets Mercury aspects affect the way an individual communicates. Having Mercury prominent in a chart points to wit, liveliness, curiosity and a great sense of joy.
The Rewards of Mentoring B y J on at ha n Y o u n g PhD Jonathan Young, Ph.D. -- storyteller and psychologist -- assisted Joseph Campbell at seminars and was the founding curator of the Joseph Campbell Archives in Santa Barbara. His books and articles focus on personal mythology. His recent writing can be found at www.folkstory.com
We reach a stage in life where we find ourselves mentoring others. There is great satisfaction in passing along the treasures we have learned along the way. It is a golden moment when a mentor confirms an overlooked quality in the protégé. There are dimensions in people that can only be claimed when affirmed by another.
Being this special kind of guide is more art than science, but studies have shown those who succeed have found helpful mentors. Sometimes the relationship is a formal part of a work situation, other times, the advisor is sought out or found in a seemingly random way. My guess is some unconscious strategy is at work to find just the right expert with exactly the desired qualities.

I’ve been revisiting Charlotte’s Web. These are the adventures of Wilbur, the runt pig saved from the axe by an eight-year old girl. Later, at risk again, he receives help from a wise spider. The story illustrates how the process of identity formation is guided by the generosity of others. There are key elements of a mythic quest and a celebration of the power of words to be noted in this classic. It may have been meant for young readers, but Charlotte’s Web has abundant wisdom for adults.
The mirrors of timeless stories can show us where we are in our own mythic adventures. There are certain tales that stay with us, to help us find our way, and teach us how to be the people we want to become. Charlotte’s Web tells us we can find marvelous qualities in those we advise. It reminds us to notice when our protégés are terrific, radiant, and humble – in just the right way.
The role is essentially to be an extra parent. We get the word from myth.

Tarot Card of the Month for June The Ace of Swords B y S hei la Jo n es - Or i gi n Ps ych ic The suit of Swords is the suit of the intellect – how we think and reason – and it is expressed through the element of Air. THE ACE OF SWORDS DEALS WITH: ✴ New ideas or plans ✴ Strong decisions or a change of mind ✴ Clear communication of one’s position ✴ Speaking one’s own truth The Ace of Swords gets to the heart of the matter and in that respect, it is all about communicating what is at the centre of the problem or issue and getting that point across with clarity, integrity and awareness. Often, when trying to get one’s point across, emotion comes in to the picture and makes what we want to say more difficult as we can get angry or start to cry and our message gets confused in the telling. We may not have confidence in what we are saying or in the real intent in our words. We are often left feeling worse than when we started and in more confusion. The Ace of Swords energy cuts through this. Although not totally detached from emotion, its energy enables us to communicate our feelings in a clear and concise way. It is as if we have the clarity to express what is in our hearts and the ability to speak this truth which is real and positive for us to express. The feeling of empowerment that the Ace of Swords energy gives one is uplifting and can cut like a sword through painful or awkward situations as the truth of what is being said is felt. In relationships, the Ace of Swords appearing in a spread heralds a time for speaking one’s personal truth.
This can often be in a situation where one is feeling that they are not being heard, or that the relationship is going down a course where they would like changes to happen or are simply not happy with the way the relationship is heading. When the Ace of Swords appears, we know it is time to stop fooling ourselves and that it is time to look within at what we are unhappy about. This card is very honest. It speaks of listening to your inner truths and inner guidance. It cuts with an edge of steel through illusion and deception. This can bring new ideas, thoughts or projects to the fore. Things we are keeping back or not feeling ready to face. The single sword cuts through all the layers – straight to the crux of the matter. The Ace of Swords, like all the aces, is about a newness and freshness forming – it is like a seed which has been planted within and the sword of truth will work its way through your intellect. You may experience it as a strong desire for truth, a call to justice, or a compelling need for honesty - speaking up for yourself. It is a reminder that life is never smooth, we all face challenges and tend to put off difficult issues or conversations. The Ace of Swords will stand by your side with courage, honesty and strength. Its message is that in every challenge, there is opportunity. 14
DID YOU KNOW? The mystery of Dark Matter has deepened: There is no Dark Matter in our part of the universe...
Artist depiction of “dark matter” as a blue halo in our area of the Milky Way. Credit: ESO/L Calcada.
The research was detailed in an article to be released in Astrophysical Journal, and the lead author is astronomer Christian Moni-Bidin from the University of Concepcion in Chile. They analyzed data gathered at Chile’s European Southern Observatory (ESO). Dark matter has been theorized to make up 85% of our observable universe; it is invisible, detectable only by its gravitational pull, and assumed to be the force or energy that keeps planets, stars and galaxies rotating faster than expected, based on visible matter present. This study is the most detailed one yet - it studied 400 red giant stars that were up to 13,000 light years away from our sun. Based on the theory of dark matter, they should have detected 0.4 to 1 kg of dark matter in that region around our sun. They found at most 70 grams. This may seem like a small amount, but it has baffled scientists, astronomers and theorists. This research does not state that dark matter does not exist, only that there is none of it in our area of the Milky Way Galaxy. This also does not explain why the Milky Way rotates faster than it should, based upon the amount of matter visible. One interesting fall-out from this research is that this could explain why we have been unable to detect dark matter on earth - because there is simply none of it here
to detect. It may mean the end of ‘Dark Matter’ as a theory or type of particle that explains the inexplicable, but they still have not figured out what holds or gels our universe together. Those with a spiritual viewpoint would suggest, as I do too, that Dark Matter is a spiritual energy or soul energy that cannot be described, detailed, or scrutinized with the logical mind. This brings up my own theory of why there is no Dark Matter in this part of the Milky Way. If it is spiritual or soul energy, and we have life on our planet, it could be that Dark Matter is integrated or expressed through the life on this planet, so that is why there is a lack of it in our part of the Milky Way. If there are other areas of the Universe where there is a lack of Dark Matter, could it be possible that there is life occurring in those areas, and areas with lots of Dark Matter have not manifested life as we understand it yet? I am sure there will be many logical and reasoned theories coming out about this paradox, but it is always good to give the spiritual side its view too.
