Many of our blogs come about as a result of readers who give us “tips” about a fad or personality that warrant more research. This is what happened with the popular books, Chicken Soul for the Soul. Thanks to that reader’s tip, we unearthed a goldmine of vital information about these “warm and fuzzy” books that we all need to know about!
LG asks: “One of my friends is trying to convince me to see a person who can tell the future by scrying. I told her this is against my religion but she said this would just be for fun. Should I take her up on it?”
The ability to walk across burning hot coals is known as firewalking and many a New Age motivational speaker wants us to believe that our mind has the power to enable us to do this. Does this explain why so many people at these events end up with their feet on fire while others walk away unscathed?
SMJ: “My therapist recently suggested that he’d like to employ a theoretical therapy based on the polyvagal theory. However, when I looked it up online, a lot of the practitioners were very New Agey and Wikipedia called it ‘unproven’. Is this something I should get involved in?”
KB writes: “My friend’s mother is a spiritist medium. The mom wants to visit (stay for a while) but my friend is afraid of having her mom over because she knows her mother is a medium and she (my friend) has children at home she wants to protect from any ‘spirits’ her mother has attached to her. My friend made a mistake by allowing her mom to babysit her newborn then learned that the mom ‘gave’ the baby some spirit gift. How can my friend remove anything given by the misguided grandma?
“How can she honor her mother (who will at some point perhaps need to live with her daughter as she ages), yet protect herself and her family? The daughter is a practicing Catholic.”
KB writes: “My son and I received acupuncture therapy. At one point, the doctor said that energy was being channeled into my son and she needed to respect that energy until it slowed down to continue. I feel uneasy about this, and am concerned that we may have exposed ourselves to something we should not have. What should I do about this?”
BJ asks: “Are all psychics the same or do they have different kinds of powers?”
We recently had a request to look into a motivational training program known as The Sterling Institute of Relationship and what we found was quite a bit controversy surrounding this outfit.
