Afterlives of the Rich and Famous by Sylvia Browne – A Book Review

Happy Wednesday, dark passengers. Instead of dealing with my own shades of insanity today, we’re going to delve into someone else’s. That’s right, it’s time for my review of Afterlives of the Rich and Famous by psychic Sylvia Browne.

In this book, Browne fills 288 pages with what dead celebrities and politicians have been up to since their deaths. How does she do this? Basically, she goes into a trance and channels her spirit guide, Francine, while her assistant asks her questions about the celebs.

Who is the ideal audience for this book? Clearly, this is for someone with an open mind about what happens after we die. It’s also for people who care about the lives of celebrities. If you care about neither of those things, I’d say this isn’t the book for you.

But if you do care, read on… [Read More...]


5 Valentine’s Day Gifts for Empaths

Have a "beary" special Valentine's Day

Well, dark passengers, there are only a few weeks left to complete your Valentine’s Day shopping for your sweetheart. If your sweetheart is an empath, you may wish to find a gift that’s a little more useful than flowers or candy. Don’t get me wrong, as an empath, I still enjoy the old stand-by gifts from time to time.

There are just other things that rank higher on my list of needs than a teddy bear holding a heart that says “I love you BEARY much.”

Of course, when you aren’t an empath, you can read up on all the specifics, but you may not ever be able to fully grasp the nuances of life as an empath experiences it. That can make Valentine’s Day gift-giving a challenge. Don’t worry because I have you covered! [Read More...]


How Much Does Deb Know About Dexter?

Does anyone suspect his dark passenger?

If you’ve watched Dexter for any length of time, you’re probably wondering when Deb is going to find out about his dark passenger. Actually, the question for some is whether she already suspects anything is off with her brother, at least on a subconscious level.

And after Deb’s cryptic statement to Dexter at the end of season 5, some people are beginning to wonder if she knows he’s a vigilante, if not a serial killer…

So, let’s discuss it all: What Deb should know, what she might know and what we WISHED she knew. (Warning: will contain spoilers up to and including Dexter season 5) [Read More...]


Are Chemtrails Preparing Us for the Zombie Apocalypse?

Happy Friday, dark passengers. Today, we’re going to touch on an issue I know has been at the forefront of all your minds for quite some time now: The Zombie Apocalypse.

Now, I know we were all disappointed when the Swine Flu pandemic a few years back didn’t bring about a moaning army of the undead on which we could practice all the stuff we’ve learned in zombie movies. If you’ve been stockpiling zombie apocalypse supplies in your basement since you were 15, you’re in luck. 2011 may just be the year your dreams of almost being eaten alive by your infected best friend could become a reality.


For the majority of people out there who don’t stockpile survival goods and don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, let me back up and break this one down so we can all go into a raving panic at the same time. [Read More...]


Are Crystals More Than Pretty Jewelry?

Crystals in all their forms can be as useful as they are pretty

Happy Wednesday, dark passengers. Today, I’d like to talk about the tools some empaths and psychics use. That’s right, we’re talking about magic rocks.

Or crystals, if you want to get technical and intelligent about it.

Anyway. I think it’s one thing to discuss the plight of empaths who can’t block out the emotions of others, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. I find that the more I talk with empaths about shielding or releasing negativity, I invariably end up having conversations about various crystals and their properties. In fact, in the last few weeks, I’ve turned into the empath pez dispenser of crystal knowledge on an empath forum.

Time to bring the crystal info here, methinks. [Read More...]


Should the Zodiac Have 13 Signs?

Does the same symbol still represent you?

Last week, it seems the worlds of mainstream and social media were ablaze with talk of whether the current zodiac was correct. Astrology as we know it, they proclaimed, was wrong. Now, we have the astrological sign of Ophiuchus, the 13th zodiac sign that will now throw everything we know about our horoscopes and personal charts into question.

But is this really accurate? Why do people believe this? Did your sign change overnight?

Before anyone who’s just hearing all the Ophiuchus hubbub for the first time starts freaking out, let’s back up and examine the rationale for each side of the argument. [Read More...]


What is an Empath?

Empaths pick up on emotions even when people don't express them

Happy Wednesday, dark passengers. It’s occurred to me that I throw around the term “empath” quite a bit as though I’m talking about something common in the world, like grass or clouds. The reality is that most people out there don’t know what an empath is…even people who might be drawn to a paranormal blog.

It’s time I fixed that assumption by going back to the basics to define it.

Of course, I use the word “basics” loosely. I realize that basic to me may not be basic to someone else, just like the things that fly right over my head are easy peasy for some of you. And – if I’m honest – I’ve only known empaths existed for the last two or three years.

Anyway. [Read More...]
