Since The Psychic Activation Challenge starts on just 5 days, I will be posting one psychic tip for you per day....on with it then!

Psychic Activation Tip #1 - Clean Out Your Pineal Gland!

Do you remember when you were a child and your mother would say "Clean Out Your Ears!" as if your ears were dirty and blocking you from hearing her correctly? Well, I'm here to let you know that Mom wasn't kidding and that the one factor that COULD be blocking you from hearing psychic messages is a dirty Pineal Gland!

The pineal gland has been under study for centuries, yet science is only now realizing the connection to psychic phenomena. The spiritually connected, on the other hand have know about and used this tiny gland (also known as The Third Eye Chakra) to connect with information that is only available from a source outside of the physical, probably since the beginning of time.

Sounds like the opening statement of a Science Fiction Episode doesn't it? Well, I assure you that the Pineal gland and it's role in psychic abilities is very real. For those of you who would like to Activate or Amplify your psychic connection, it is most important to keep this little, pine nut that is...clean and clear!

How do I do that? (I assume that you ask)

One way to do this is to increase your vitamin K2 intake. Foods that are high in this vitamin prove to help reduce the calcification that can sometimes occur in the Pineal gland for various reasons that are explained in more detail in my workbook.. These deposits can slow the Pineal function, thus creating a block in the psychic connection.

Here is a small list of foods that are high in Vitamin K2:
  • Cheese
  • Egg yolks
  • Butter
  • Salami
  • Chicken breast/Chicken Liver
If you'd like to learn more about your Pineal Gland and how to activate it, be sure to join the 28 day challenge! Here is a link to more information

How To Create Your Own Custom Payment Buttons in Paypal

Do you use Paypal to accept payments?

What many of you may not know, is that Paypal makes it easy for you to use your own custom payment buttons and by using a button design that matches your website, you are building your brand!

Creating your own custom payment buttons is easier than you think and I'm going to show you three easy ways to do it yourself in today's blog!

But first, you will have to create the button. 
The "standard" size for a web button is 88x31, but you can create your button to be any size that you'd like, as long as it is balances out well with the look and feel of your website and it is easy to read. Here are some example buttons to give you some inspiration:

Standard Paypal buttons
Mind Trip Productions
Pain Free Spray

Be creative when it comes to your button! As you see, you can simply create a button that matches the colors of your site, or go all out and create a button that matches your logo!

If you would like to create a simple button that will match the colors of your website, I suggest you visit: dabuttonfactory. It's free to use and you can select your colors based on your website HEX color codes!

Button Created at dabuttonfactory
Creating your button at dabuttonfactory can also save you steps when linking your button to paypal!

I created the button on the left, so that you can get an idea of the quality.

Now that you have created your button, lets take a look at how easy it is to make it your custom payment button in paypal!

As I stated earlier, there are three different ways that you can use your new payment button with Paypal! For the examples, I will be using the drag and drop editor in Mind Trip Productions web hosting package, but you can do this in any website editor, so long as you are familiar with linking and/or adding html code to your website.

Option #1 - link your button image to the Paypal payment link. 

Learning Level = Easy

This is the quickest and easiest of the three methods that I will be showing you today. Here are the steps:

1. Sign in to your paypal account and create/edit your button. To create a button in paypal, click on "Profile", then "My Selling Tools". This will take you to your My Selling Tools page. Once you are on that page, you will see a title labeled "Paypal buttons" and all the way to the right, a link marked "update". Click that link and then select "create a new button". Follow the steps to create your button and when you are finished, click to create button

2. Then Copy your code from the Email tab(IMPORTANT). 

TIP - I like to copy and save all of my codes in a word document for easy access.

3. Log in to your website editing area and upload the button that you created, placing it in the area where you would like it displayed.

4. Link the image to the payment link from Paypal

5. publish your work and voila! you are done!

Here is a link that I just created using this method, that will take you to my paypal payment page to purchase a custom made button that matches your website for $20.00!

Option #2 - Use a button hosted on dabuttonfactory. 

Learning level = Moderate

Remember how I stated earlier that not only is creating a button in Dabuttonfactory easy, it also cuts out a lot of time when it comes to hosting the button in Paypal! Here are the steps that make it happen!

  1. Sign in to your Paypal account and select either create or edit your button following the steps outlined in option #1. In the customize button area, select "customize text or appearance.", then select the radio button that says "use your own button image".
  2. Create your button in dabuttonfactory, only instead of saving the image, you will copy the link address of the button. to do this, highlight and copy the web address that is inside the box labeled "button"(see step #2)
  3. Click back into your Paypal account to the area that you selected earlier (use your own button image) paste the button URL that you copied from dabutton factory into that, then click "create button".
  4. Copy the code from the website tab (IMPORTANT)
  5. Paste the HTML code into your website where you would like the button to appear.
  6. Publish your work and you are done!

Option #3 - Create Your Own Button 

Learning Level = Advanced

For those of you who are comfortable with creating and editing your own buttons, this is the way to go! I personally like the look and feel of a payment button that includes some aspect of the website itself. This makes the site look oober professional!

To do this, you will follow the same final three steps for option #2, AFTER you have designed and created an html link for your button image. Here's how:

1. Create your button image. Be sure that it is proportional to your website design and that the wording is crisp and clear. Save it as either a jpg or png file.

TIP - png files are great to use for images that have rounded corners or unusual shapes!

2. Upload the image to photobucket. Once the image is uploaded, find it
in your library and click on it, then click the "get link codes" button. You'll want to copy the direct link code. To copy, simply click in the bar and the link automatically copies for you!

3. Paste the link into your Paypal :use your own button" area and click create button.

4. Copy the paypal button code from the Website tab.

5. Paste the html code into your website where you would like the button to appear, publish your work and you are ready to take orders!!!

So there you have it!! Three simple Options to create stellar Paypal payment buttons for your website!

I hope you find inspiration from this mini tutorial and I invite you to share a link to the shiny new Paypal buttons that you create!!! I look forward to seeing them and if you would like help along the way, please feel free to visit the Mind Trip Productions website!

Until Then - Be Well!

Today I am Grateful For...

Today, I performed a house clearing ceremony as well as personal clearings for the family that lives there. I usually do not do many house clearings anymore, since my business has shifted more towards helping spiritual entrepreneurs along their path.

Even though, my true soul purpose is to continue to build Mind Trip Productions business, It is still important for me to provide my psychic and spiritual services to the public - So I work out of an amazing spiritual center in Fort Myers, called the Mystical Moon.This way, I can continue to build the Mind Trip Productions name and still make myself available for psychic readings, intuitive hypnosis and personal clearings one day a week.

Over the past couple of years, I had begun to cut back on some of the other spiritual services that I offered and home clearings was on the list - but by the end of last week, it became quite clear, that for some reason, spirit had designated me for this particular house clearing. In fact, the family had been trying to schedule the clearing with a couple of other practitioners over the last two weeks, and every one of them had not worked out.

So I spoke with them on the phone and scheduled a home visit for this morning.

and this morning I got up and gathered my home clearing goodies:
Blessed Water......check
all other items needed.....check

And I was on my way!

Now, I knew this wasn't one of the best neighborhoods in town and had prepared myself energetically for it. You see, this family was desperate to come out of a tough situation that they found themselves stuck in for the past year and a half. Perhaps you've heard this story....the one that begins with a simple loss of a job and spirals into homelessness and despair.

As I turned into the neighborhood and made my way through, I was grateful that I had protected my personal energy & vehicle.

The neighborhood, was just as I had expected. Almost every one of the homes were unkempt or bordered up and the people peered at me with looks of curiosity and distrust. The energy was thick like a dense fog and if I had to describe the overall feel, I would describe it as territorial and dangerous....

YEP, it was just as I had expected...and then I got to the house. The family was so grateful that I was there and hopeful that I could help them "shift" the energy in their home and their lives. My heart broke in to pieces when I entered the house....they had been placed here by an organization so that they could have a home and get back on their feet....I wondered how an organization, who's main purpose is to help those in need, could send a family here and think it would help them get on their feet.

The wife had done her best to clean before I arrived, but does one keep a home clean, when it clearly hasn't been kept up in years. and the purchase of cleaning supplies gets kicked to the back burner in exchange for food. A humbled father, hopeful mother, two teenage children and a baby lived in this tiny space...and they actually "liked" one another.....

Even if they had enough bedding for everyone, it wouldn't have fit in this small place and one of the beds was merely an air mattress that could no longer hold air and had been neatly laid out nonetheless, to mark the outline of a bed....and yet they walked around and prayed behind me that Jesus would protect them and bring prosperity and abundance into their lives.

At first glance, it would appear that his family had nothing. I'm sure that most of you would not venture through a neighborhood like this one..let alone walk into one of the houses. But I have to say that, even though it's tough - I think they have more than most, because they have HOPE. They have EACH OTHER and they count on each other to make it through this difficult time in their lives and I'm sure that they WON'T GIVE UP!

Today, I am grateful for the little things. I am grateful that I have a decent roof over my head. I am grateful for my clients, that keep me in business and help me afford simple things like food and household cleaners. I am grateful that I live in a neighborhood where I can walk down the street without the fear of being shot or robbed (or both).

Most of all, today I am grateful for my personal relationships and hold a whole new respect for them and I'm reminded that...
If you don't like your life, change it.
If you can't change it, change the way you look at it.

What experiences has spirit sent you lately, that cause you to look at your life differently - Please feel free to share or comment - I'd love to hear from you!

How To Cross Promote Videos on YouTube

This is a great tutorial for those of you who have created an amazing video and would like to share it on another YouTube channel or for those of you who'd like to share other peoples videos on your channel.

The Steps:

  1. 1. First, you'll want to sign in to the YouTube account where you would like the video to appear. If you haven't done so already, go ahead and create a playlist for the video(s). This helps keep your content organized and easy for your viewers to navigate your channel.To give you an example, I'm going to share some of my MindTripProduction's channel videos on a new channel that I am working on:


Let's get some video's in the playlist, so you can share them with the world!!

2. Once you have set up the playlist that will share the new videos, and while you are still signed in to that account - go ahead and search for the channel that you'd like to fetch the video(s) from. (you can also search for specific videos within YouTube, if you'd like) and share them into the playlist that you created.

Here's How:



You can have fun with this by creating many playlists that each contain different subject matter! To see a great example of this, feel free to visit my YouTube Channel. There you will find that I have a playlist for video tutorials, one for playing card tips and another that hosts my videos from another YouTube Channel, where I host a weekly show! Also, be sure to subscribe while you are there!!!

I hope you find this tutorial helpful and I'd love to hear about and see the playlists that you create!

Wishing you tons of abundance & success,

A FREE Gift to help with your harvest!

Blessed Lammas Eve!

As we prepare for yet another harvest season, I hope that yours will be filled with prosperity and abundance.For the many of you who know me well, know that I can sometimes throw myself into a funnel of projects - many times multitasking as much as I can possibly get into one day....and I can easily get lost in it!

I like to call it my "Spiritual ADD"

For me, my spiritual ADD, is a good thing as it keeps me moving and helping others to move forward with their personal hopes and dreams as well! So, THANK YOU for understanding the complexity of me and accepting the fact that I do not always stay on a schedule of blog posting, emailing, etc....It's just not me - but you can bet that when something moves me, I'm on it and eager to share it with you all!!

In fact, that is what drives me here today - in eager anticipation of my newest project that I've created specifically for the Leaders, Teachers and Entrepreneurs of our spiritual community....a program that is sure to change the way we do business forever. One that will rocket launch your message, teachings and voice in front of a GLOBAL AUDIENCE with your digital goods! All this so you can:

"Stand Out As A Spiritual Expert"

But before I share the details with you, I'd like to tell you about the events that have lead up to this unique blog post....It is an interesting story indeed;

A couple of weeks ago, one of my dearest friends and spiritual colleagues came down from out of state for a working vacation. The Spiritual Shop that I work out of is extremely successful and often times hosts psychics, authors & healers throughout the country.

She had brought another friend along for the journey and they both stayed at my home for a few days. This friend owns a spiritual shop as well and had decided to come along for the ride to check out other shops along the way, get new ideas and inspiration to bring home and hopefully revive her own store up north.

We had a great visit and spent many nights reliving past adventures together and talking about the future of our business as spiritual entrepreneurs. I also eagerly shared the details of my new program with them and explained how it will change the way spiritual leaders do business and put them in the forefront once again. I explained how important a digital presence is nowadays and that I had devised an easy to follow program that allows them to capture their spiritual message into a digital platform....

My friend is eager to begin her journey towards digital enlightenment and we have already recorded her first class, but her travel companion had a different reaction to the of FEAR! She said to me "I think it is a wonderful concept, but I'm afraid that if I digitize my products & services, no one will come in to my shop anymore and I'll have to close the doors"...WOW

A big ole' monkey wrench in my program - and at that moment, I was forced to ask myself, "What if she is not the only store owner with this fear? What can I create to help her and others with the same fear to help them move past it?

So, I went back to my program development and lost myself in the project for a couple of weeks! Here's what I came up with. She's right in a way....because no matter if she decides to digitize her products & services or not, It's the way that the world is moving and growing. EVERYTHING is done on a computer nowadays. Clients book their appointments online, look up addresses and phone numbers & so much more! Why not be a part of this movement, instead of sitting in fear and risk being left behind.

According to WikipediaPeople who practice New Age spirituality or who embrace its lifestyle are included in the Lifestyle of Health and Sustainability (LOHAS) demographic market segment, currently in a growth phase, related to sustainable living, green ecological initiatives, and generally composed of a relatively affluent and well-educated segment. The LOHAS market segment in 2006 was estimated atUSD$300 billion, approximately 30 percent of the United States consumer market. According to The New York Times, a study by the Natural Marketing Institute showed that in 2000, 68 million Americans were included within the LOHAS demographic. The sociologist Paul H. Ray, who coined the term Cultural Creatives in his book The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People Are Changing the World (2000), states, "What you're seeing is a demand for products of equal quality that are also virtuous.

Digitizing your products and services will put you in front of these 68-plus million Americans  so that you can share your message with them and provide your expertise both locally and globally!

So...I ask you:

Are you a spiritual based business owner, gifted psychic, healer and/or teacher who would like to step in front of a global audience?

Do you just know deep down inside that you could help create positive change in the world by sharing your message with millions of people?

Have you been called to service the masses during your blessed time here on earth – but you find yourself putting it off because you do not have the know-how to make it happen?

If you resonate with any (or all) of the above, then my new program could be the right fit for you! I want to help you create a digital platform that resonates with your unique gifts and helps express who you truly are as an expert...and my program is unlike any other - in fact, candidates are required to submit an application prior to approval into the program. This is to insure that I am only working with spiritual leaders with the best of intentions and the highest of integrity.

So what is your next step? You can sit quietly and watch while others in your field soar past you as fast as their modems will take them - or you can step into the digital limelight today.

Master Number 22

The number 22 has been showing up in my life quite a bit lately and since I am a firm believer that there are no coincidences in life, I decided to look into it a little further!

I know a little "sumtin, sumtin" about numerology and am well aware that 22 is one of the master numbers (witch means that it is a number that does not get divided down to a single number, like most numbers in numerology do) and that it is the number of master manifestation...The ability to bring the highest of spiritual endeavors into the physical, but like most of us who see this number pop up over and over in our lives, I wanted to know more...So I did a little digging!

And I came across this amazing website!

This site had all the tiny little details that I had been looking for and MORE! Here I found information on the number 22 as a life path number, destiny number, even gift suggestions for someone with this number!

But still I wanted more - My search, was for answers to the burning question...what does it mean when the number just randomly shows up in my life????

And I clicked a little further to find what is called "Angel Numbers"..ok, I thought - I'm getting warmer!

Here's what I found on the Angel Number 22...



The Master Number 22 carries the energies and attributes of diplomacy, intuition and emotion, balance and harmony, adaptability, diplomacy, personal power, redemption, idealism, expansion and evolution, idealism, philanthropy and service and duty and manifesting your highest ideals and desires.  Number 22 is a number of power and accomplishment.  

Angel Number 22 is made up of the number 2 appearing twice, amplifying its attributes.  Number 2 relates to your Divine life purpose and soul mission, and the Angel Number 22 encourages you to work diligently on your spiritual life path andsoul purpose.

 Angel Number 22 is a message from your angels that you are to take a balanced, harmonious and peaceful stance in all areas of your life.  Stand strong in your personal convictions and act accordingly.  You have a great deal to achieve, and with devotion and inner-wisdom you will be able tosuccessfully manifest your desired results.

Angel Number 22 can turn the most ambitious of dreams into reality.  The repeating Angel Number 22 asks you to see the larger picture, and to work with the details necessary to complete that picture.  Angel Number 22 encourages you to bring things through to fruition on both the spiritual and material planes.

The repeating Angel Number 22 is a message from your angels to maintain your convictions and keep an optimistic outlook and a positive attitude as your desires are currently being manifested for you.

Number 22 is a ‘Master Builder’ Number, and in it’s lower vibrational form it relates to the Number 4.

Once I finished reading this awesome outline of the number, I realized that TODAY IS THE 22ND of FEB! woah!

So here are some tips from me on how you can best spend this day

  1. Do something magnificent! Today is the day that dreams are made of, so if you've been dreaming a big dream - why not start creating it in the physical? I'm sure that any projects started (or finished) today will be divinely inspired!
  2. Plan a special meditation that is heart and soul centered. Today is a day for the deepest connection to spirit. Anything that comes to you in meditation is sure to be inspirational and directed towards your spiritual growth.
  3. Take a good look at where you stand on things. Is there an area in your life, where you could be taking a stronger stance or perhaps where you are taking to strong a stance? This is a good day to put a plan in place that creates a balance and harmony in your life!

May today be filled with love, joy and inspiration for you!

Setting Healthy and Loving Boundaries

Enter the NEW YEAR 2013!

I was off and running straight out the gate!
I was on fire and in the lead of my own life...running swift, smooth, almost floating on air...
Finally finishing projects that I had promised myself I would do for years!
Things that I had put off for way to long and had set aside until...
Well, there was always an until in 2012!

But this year was going to be different, or so I thought - and almost as soon as I could see that bright yellow finish line, those who I have trained extremely well at needing me more that I could ever need myself, almost threw themselves in front of me, tripping me up with:

My life really sucks and I NEED you to stop what you are doing right now and help me!

So I paused for a moment...and with much love in my heart and peace in my soul said "I'm really sorry that I can't help you, but I promised myself that I wouldn't sell myself short this year and falter from my own needs, like I did last year"

and it feels good...really good! Much to my surprise, most people are fine with this response. The ones' that are not, I'm sure will eventually come around - but if they don't I will stay on track. Because it is so important to me to be an active participant in my own own success.

I also made a important realization. I realized that when I do not set healthy boundaries, I am not actually helping anybody at all! I'm creating a detrimental block for both myself and the person I am helping by keeping both of us from experiencing personal growth.

Learning how to set boundaries was (and still is)my most difficult task AND the most important one for me this year!

I am still in the baby phases and learning, but it feels good to use this tiny yet powerful phrase to help me set healthy boundaries..

Try it yourself today! The next time one of your boundary breakers steps in, simply say:
"I'm really sorry that I cannot , but I promised myself that I would not and falter from my own needs like I did before."

Special thanks to Stephanie Ward - Firefly Coaching for her free report on setting healthy boundaries!
