There is no question we're living in one of the most exciting times in man's history. Things are changing so rapidly on both the temporal and spiritual planes; and as those things change, so do we and our needs. People are opening so rapidly now; one moment they're living life as they always have, plodding along in their daily lives, then suddenly waking up one morning experiencing a sense of urgency driving them. They KNOW there's something they must prepare for - but have no idea what that might be.
These are the first glimmers of a spiritual awakening, and there can be a sense of excitement and even dread that comes along with it. It's what pushes people to begin exploring their own spirituality, and the gifts that often come with it.
Having been a teacher of spiritual and psychic development since the age of 17, it's been alternately terrifying, exciting and comforting watching the spiritual opening over many years. Comforting and exciting because the world needs us to be 'on our game', alert and ready to help and support those who are in need, and terrifying because so many people are trying to learn or develop their psychic abilities without first learning adequate psychic self-defence.
