Month: January 2015

Moving forward…

There has been a lot going on in my life, and a lot of it has been good.

I have been celebrating my Birthday and for many years, I have encouraged clients, students, and friends to celebrate their Birthday all-month-long.

I believe in practicing what I teach, and yes, although my Birthday is January 8, I celebrate my Birthday all-month-long.

However, I must confess that I have been experiencing some degree of ennui, which is ironic considering how busy my Psychic Practice has been, as well as the position of employment that I have come to realize is no longer temporary.

Nonetheless, I look forward to getting back on the blogging wagon and soon.

For now, I wish all of you who follow or read “This Gay Man’s Life…” a lovely evening, a beautiful day and a wonderful weekend, too.movingforward

Mercury Retrograde Mysteries, Part II

And here is Part II. Thank you.

May the Universe help you take your verbal and written communications to the next level, Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch.

This Is Who I AM

Good morning, dear blog readers, and a Happy Monday and Day of the Moon to all of you!  I hope and pray all of you had a wonderful weekend.

Before I begin to write about how best to deal with a Mercury Retrograde Transit, I wish to Lovingly Re-Mind all of you of the Healing Powers of what I call an “Unplugged/Off-the-Internet” Day.  Yesterday, Sunday, July 15, 2012 was just such a day for me, and I feel great!  My physical health is definitely better, my emotional health is fantastic and my connection to the Divine feels strong and clear.  I spent the day reading, writing, lounging in bed, bathing my three beautiful cats with Divine Love Healing Energies, not to mention eating yummy food and preparing wondrous beverages (I drink hot coffee, regardless of the weather, and I make BADASS coffee!.

I also swept the floors, changed the litter…

Mercury Retrograde Mysteries, Part I

For those of you that are Metaphysically, Magickally and Mystically-Minded, here is one of two blog posts that shall help you overcome the challenges of a Mercury Retrograde. Thank you. Here is to the Divine helping you take your Mind to the next level, Robert Alvarez, the Psychic Witch.

This Is Who I AM

Although the vast majority of my clients, students and friends come to me for Intuitive Card Readings, Metaphysical Classes (group or private or both) and/or Reiki Healing Energy Treatments, every once in a while someone comes to me for an Astrological Consultation.

Over the years, I have heard many people bemoan the mystery that is a Mercury Retrograde.  Spirit Divinely Guiding me to write a two-part blog post about it, and I AM happy to follow Spirit’s Divine Guidance in the matter.

Before I go any further, I wish to state, here and now that I urge you to ask any questions about Mercury Retrogrades, what they mean, what to do about them, etc.  However, I request that you ask them after you read the blog post.

First, in Western Astrology, Mercury is the Planet of Oral and Written Communication, the Intellect, Local Travel, National Travel and of the Mind…

Book Review: “Lavender Reflections…”

Although I rarely make New Year resolutions, I did promise myself that in 2015, “The Year of Taking it to the Next Level,” I would begin working with a beautiful book that I have owned for several years.

Over the years, I have purchased many books at Giovanni’s Room (which, as many of you know, is now known as Philly AIDS Thrift at Giovanni’s Room).

One of my favorite book purchases is Lavender Reflections: Affirmations for Lesbians & Gay Men, by Eleanor Ruth Wagner, photographs by Victor Arimondi (Copyright 1995, Alamo Square Press, San Francisco, California).

It is one of those books that features every date of the calendar year (alas, it excludes February 29, but I digress).

Each day features an Affirmation, or Treatment, to use Louise L. Hay’s term, or a quotation from a well-known Lesbian or Gay Man of past or present.


For example, this is the entry for today (Sunday), January 11, with the subject “Beauty in Loving:”

The Affirmative Statement begins with “In the beauty of others’ bodies, I see my own.”  And then it continues with:

“Beautiful people, beautiful bodies.  I am one with my gender as I appreciate the loveliness of all of us.”


Although the book was written for Lesbians and Gay Men, the Affirmations could be adapted for Bisexuals and Transgendered people, too.

The book is a wonderful way to set intentions on how to be a personally empowered and Spiritually Uplifted member of the LGBT Communities, as well as how to move forward in healing your past.

Based on my visits to both and (an eBay company), it looks like this book is no longer in print, but you can find copies for purchase at both Websites.

Before I close, I wish to acknowledge my newest blog follower, “dcpassion2009.”  May you receive great insight, great love, and great PRIDE from following “This Gay Man’s Life…”

And for those of you already following or reading “This Gay Man’s Life…” thank you for honoring who you are and what you do, and for honoring who I AM and what I do, too.lavenderreflections



Creating a Vibration for Prosperity 2015

Truly, I have become a reblogging fool! Ha!

I was Divinely Inspired to share this post from “The Magical Buffet,” may all of you who follow or read “This Gay Man’s Life…” enjoy and receive Blessings from it, too.

This Is Who I AM

A little while ago, I received this post, courtesy of “The Magical Buffet: Where Spirituality, Politics, and Pop Culture Collide.”

Personally, I ignore the “Politics” part (or, as I refer to it, “fucking politics”), but happily enjoy the posts on Spirituality, and the ones on Pop Culture, too.

The official name of the post is “Creating a Vibration of Prosperity in the New Year!” and you can read it by visiting:

Enjoy, and Happy New Year!magicalbuffetheader
