5 Ways to Find a Good Psychic

Psychics are a dime a dozen, but good psychics can be a little harder to find. If you aren't interested in wasting your money on pretenders and scam artists, here are just five tips for finding someone who's truly in contact with deeper forces.

1. Consider Your Spiritual Needs

There are many different types of psychics; they range from clairvoyants who can see the future to mediums who can speak with the deceased. If you're looking for a particular kind of reading, you'll need to reach out to a psychic who specializes in that area. Don't expect a psychometer to understand tarot cards, and don't ask a palm reader to decide if your husband is cheating on you.

2. Choose Your Platform

Some people need face-to-face interaction with their psychic to feel truly connected to them. Others are satisfied contacting a psychic by phone or email. There's no "one size fits all" when it comes to communicating with your psychic; everyone will have different needs, desires and priorities, so figure out what's best for you and go for it.

3. Ask About Their Price

Psychics are providing a service, so like any professional, they expect to be paid. Make sure that you and your psychic have talked about prices and payment plans before you actually sit down for a reading. Don't be ashamed of admitting that you're on a budget; if your psychic knows that you're struggling, they might be able to help you with special discounts or payment plans.

4. Do Your Homework

This is especially important if you plan on conducting a seance. The Hollywood version is quite exaggerated, so if you're expecting grand puffs of smoke and disembodied voices floating through the darkness when you're contacting Great-Aunt Sally, you might be disappointed with a real-life seance. Do some research to help you temper your expectations.

5. Keep Trying

If your first car was a lemon, would you have sworn off cars forever? Don't let yourself get discouraged by one bad reading or one silly psychic. If your first attempt wasn't good enough, keep reaching out to other psychics until you make the connection that changes everything.

A good psychic can help you unravel the future and decipher its mysteries, but the first step is distinguishing them from all of the scam artists. Use these tips to help you wade through the wannabes and find someone truly talented.

Using the Internet For Guided Meditation

A lot of people understand the benefits of meditation but can’t find the time to actually meditate. Guided meditation is a helpful way to insure that time is put aside for this need for mindfulness but finding the time and place to seek out these groups doesn’t usually fit in a modern hectic schedule of work and home. But thanks to the internet, there are plenty of ways to get the kind of guided meditation one desires.

There has been a lot of studies recently that point to links between a healthy brain and meditation. Psychiatric research into mindful meditation has shown that the positive effects of meditating last long after a session ends. Over the past three decades, psychotherapeutic programs have used mindful meditation practices and have seen tremendous results. Mindful-based interventions have been shown to reduce anxiety disorders, depression, and drug addiction among other conditions like chronic pain and sleep disorders.

The Importance of Mindful Meditation

Learning to live in the moment, to recognize that all thoughts are fleeting, is the key concept to mindfulness practice. Besides improving well-being, research now shows that meditation allows a perceptual shift for the individual to recognize events in their world occurring in the present moment and to take a compassionate, eyes wide open look, at the world around them. Meditation is not just about closing your eyes and trying to clear your head. It is about understanding the importance of each breath, that everything is as fleeting as the next intake of air, and that everything can disappear with the next outtake. Being in the present, recognizing that exists right now is the sensations around the individual, and then to take a moment, a pause, to just live in the moment, is the heart of mindfulness. Leave blame and regret in the past. Leave fear and worry in the future. Live in the moment of the space between breaths. That is the importance of mindfulness.

Finding Time to Meditate

Joining a meditation group is a great way to get in time to meditate but finding a steady group that matches an individual’s busy schedule can be complicated. But thanks to the internet, guided meditation groups and lectures have popped up all over the web. From sessions that last just a few minutes to much longer deeper mindfulness lessons, there are tons of sites offering help for the beginning and the full-time practitioner. The key is to find a site, find an instructor that fits your individual needs, and set time aside to find the inner peace and reflection necessary in this hectic, demanding world.

Family Bonding

Time flies so fast.  Hubby had just left home to go back to his work overseas. We had loads of fun during his almost 2 months vacation but what I can clearly remember about our bonding experiences was our day spent at a hotel outdoor pool.  We had fond memories during that day. Apart from night swimming of course, we have enjoyed scrumptious foods served to us in the pool area.  We had some games too while in the pool and we all had a great time.  

Another nice bonding moment that we had aside from this is our weekend chill nights where we use to stay in an outdoor cafe drinking coffee and beer and just spending time talking, eating and laughing.  Maybe we are getting older now that's why we are already avoiding noisy places..Lol

I remembered last time, we love to listen to a live band.  There is this favorite pizza hauz that we often visit and we would just hang around there and enjoy the music.  They only have a small stage and not so sophisticated musical equipment like musiciansfriend.com snare drum but the singers were really good and even have this comic act which can really make us entertained and laugh.  I am hoping that we can find more time to bond together as a family. We seldom do this as we are not together most of the time because of work but we always make sure that we will always have a quality time together.

Drew Barrymore's Daughter Throws Epic Disney Tantrum

Even celebrity moms have to deal with it! Drew Barrymore shared a hilarious photo set of her daughter Olive losing her cool at the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland! Talking to Seth Meyers on “The Late Show”, Drew admitted that while taking her girls to Disney was an amazing experience, that as most things do with little kids, it “always ends in mayhem”. We can all relate to that! In the hilarious snapshots, Drew's four year old daughter Olive, lays on the ground at the theme park in the midst of a tantrum, while Drew casually posing and smiling alongside her. The pictures are so funny, and show just how things can turn out when you have young kids in tow

Drew admits that the girls were very sleep deprived during their time at Disney, and when Olive wanted to chase a duck, and wasn't allowed to, that just caused everything to completely melt down! So cute, and so relatable. Drew advises other moms on just how to handle tantrums of this nature, saying: "I think you should have 10 consistent tools in your arsenal," she said. "It's either the tender loving approach or the 'I'm very serious' approach." Drew is such a great mom, and her girls (with ex husband Will Kopelman) are so super adorable, we love when she shares photos and videos of them so we can enjoy them too! 


Handling Your Money is A Big Responsibility

When it comes to saving money, I wouldn't say that I'm an expert, but I was able to manage our finances with much success. As what everybody else is saying, you will never ever succeed at this if you don't have discipline, so I would say that this is the first key.  Next would be your ability to think wide.  Having said that, I am referring to your ability to imagine things like finding ways and means to cut on your expenses, earn from extra sources and of course, more importantly the ability to grow your money.  All these are very important when your ultimate goal is to save and be financially stable.  I know that there is no short cut to all these as most would definitely take time, especially when you are just saving  minimal amount of money every month.  However, these steps would not be successful without considering the other. If you wish to save more, the first thing to do is to cut on your expenses.  As what I've been saying in my previous posts, the amount of money you can save from cutting on unnecessary expenses is always the best start to save.

We have to face it, it's not so easy to find an extra source of income, it definitely takes time, so while you are doing that, finding ways to cut on your expenses would be a great way to start.  We have to face it, not everything we spend for every month is a part of our basic necessities. You might be surprised that we are spending more actually for things we don't really need.  That being said, it is of paramount importance that we re examine our spending habits.

After we are able to cut on our expenditures, probably our next step is to look for additional source of income.  It doesn't need to be a huge "money maker" but just enough to add up on our savings and to grow our "emergency fund".  Remember, it is not how much you make but how you keep, save and grow your money that matters.  There's a lot more to talk and discuss as far as "money issues" is concerned but more importantly, we have to change the way we look at managing our expenses.  This will give you a lot more reasons to be happy in the end.




Book Your Next Hotel With Ease At Traveloka

February is hubby’s birth month but since he is away from home due to his job overseas, we can’t really throw the best party for him.  Since he is due to arrive on the same month as well for his much awaited vacation, me and my kids thought of giving him a surprise get away the day after he arrived.  Since we don’t have enough time to plan for everything as we are also busy with ongoing projects at home, I’ve decided to look for a travel booking App that would help me decide and book with much ease.

I have chosen Traveloka not only because it’s pretty much new and I want to see how it differs from other travel booking apps but also because I’ve been reading a lot of good recommendations about this from friends.  Some may still opt to go through the traditional way of booking by going through a travel agency and letting it do everything for you, but I think it’s more convenient to do it by yourself right in your own desk or even when you’re out there in the mall.  Downloading this App would enable you to search for flights and hotels and compare prices based from your specifications in no time. Well, that’s a lot more convenient than spending call credits trying to contact your travel agency only to find out that all their lines are busy.


After much consideration, I downloaded the App and in a little while, I already found myself looking for the best weekday or weekend escapade. 



Initially, we wanted a “mini vacation” in a beach resort in Zambales but this App allowed us to choose from a variety of hotels available in that area complete with all the hotel descriptions, activities and attractions that each could offer which I find to be very convenient.  Not only that, it comes with reviews from previous visitors so you could absolutely get all the unbiased reviews based from the experiences of the previous travelers which is also a good thing as this could help you decide on what hotel to choose.


This App is so easy to navigate, you just type the destination of your choice in the search box and a list of hotel recommendations would already be available right before your eyes. You will be asked to write down the date of your trip, number of guests, rooms and the number of nights you will stay and the App would search everything for you. Easy peasy!


As to the payment method, the App allows you to pay through your Credit Card, banks, and over the counter from selected establishments like 7/11.    What I love more about this booking app is the additional discounts extended to Traveloka members from their ongoing promos.





When you are a registered member of Traveloka, you will have your account available at all time to view your previous and current bookings.












Now, everything is all set for our next trip. I am sure that hubby would have a great time in our forthcoming Zambales escapade more so that the family will be complete again.  My kids are equally excited for another family adventure at Casa San Miguel.  We’ve been hearing a lot of great reviews for this hotel and we can’t wait to see more of their facilities and participate in one or more of their activities.

Will be posting a separate review of our stay soon!

When You Suffer From Back Pains

Due to my recent out of town trip, I am currently suffering from a severe back pain.  I was diagnosed with straightening of lower lumbar lordosis  years ago and it is for that reason that I am being prohibited from staying in the same position for more than 30 minutes.  I should be continuously moving or at least changing positions at least every 5 minutes.  We rode a bus on our way back to our city and unfortunately, the bus is just an ordinary one and since we were in a hurry to go home, we were forced to take the first bus which had arrived on the bus station.  The end result is here, I am now currently suffering from a back pain.  I can hardly move and is unable to bend down on my knees whenever I need to pick something from the floor.  This has prevented me from doing my normal day to day routine which is really a hassle.  Now, I've learned my lesson, I won't be compromising my health condition even for any reason.  I can't even sleep comfortably because of the pains.  

I've taken a couple of pain medicines to reduce the pain and had my back massaged with hot ointment.  This is not the first time it happened, so I might be enduring this pain for two or more days.  As I have been dealing with my back pains for years now, more or less I already knew the precautionary measures that I need to observe when managing back pains.  

First, I have to avoid being stationery for a long time as I have previously mentioned.  Second,  I need to refrain from wearing high heels, third, I should always be watching my posture and lastly, I have to do stretching most of the time.  Luckily, I never smoke as this is really bad for those suffering from osteoporosis or other bone problems.  Also, I have an ideal weight which is another plus factor. Being overweight would alleviate the back problem so I'm just fortunate that I never get fat eversince.

Now, I am just waiting for the pain to actually subside and I just keep on moving so at least the pain would lessen if not totally eliminated at once.  It's good to know how to manage the pains if you have one.  Also, taking a Turmeric tea regularly would also be of great help as this could reduce inflammation and pains.

Maybe I should also be buying a back support.  I better start looking for a good one now. :)
