Ask Steve – Erin’s Intuitive Readings

I see that Erin is offering readings on her site now. What’s the deal with that? Earlier this year Erin and I attended a spirituality seminar where we had the opportunity to try doing intuitive/psychic readings of other people. We’ve been developing our intuitive abilities throughout our 12-year relationship (has it really been 12 years???),…

Ask Steve – Is Covering Psychic Development Unprofessional?

Don’t you think it’s unprofessional to cover topics like psychic readings and spirit guides? Not to the spirits. 😉 Given the size of this site’s audience, I fully accept that some articles won’t resonate with certain people. Personally I don’t see that as a problem but rather as a fact to be accepted. When I…

Ask Steve – What Religion Are You?

What religion are you? I don’t identify myself with any particular belief system, philosophy, or religion, so this question doesn’t have any meaning for me. Just as your computer wouldn’t identify itself as the software it runs, I don’t identify myself as the beliefs I hold in my consciousness. I strive to install and understand…

Ask Steve – Helping Stubborn People

How you do deal with a situation where you do your very best to help someone, but they refuse to apply your solution even when it’s virtually guaranteed to work? What do you do when you lead the horse to water, but it stubbornly refuses to drink, even to its own detriment? When you lead…

Ask Steve – Technical Background

What is your technical background/history? When I was 10 years old, I was introduced to Apple II BASIC programming via an after school program. I instantly loved it and never looked back. A few years later, my parents bought an Atari 800 computer with a disk drive, and I quickly claimed it as my own.…

Ask Steve – Psychic Development

You’ve alluded in past posts that there are even more things you’re involved with regarding psychic phenomena than you have written about. I’ve gotten the sense that you are holding back some things. Is my hunch right? What are you dying to tell us (your readers) about psychic phenemena that you feel would really challenge…

Ask Steve – Astral Projection

What’s there for personal development in astral traveling? Is it worthwhile to pursue the astral world and neglect the physical world? I first learned about real astral projection in 1994. Before that I only knew the phony version as depicted in movies and computer games. For me astral exploration was a natural extension of lucid…

Ask Steve – Intuition vs. Ego

How do you tell the difference between what your intuition is telling you vs. what your ego is telling you? Which should you listen to? This is usually a significant challenge at first. It takes practice to recognize the difference between genuine intuitive guidance and ego-based messages. Here are some pointers that may help you…

Ask Steve – Why Grow?

Why do you want to constantly improve and develop yourself? Why not simply say, “This is good enough. I’ll just relax in the garden with a glass of wine instead of finding a way to be more productive”? Where does this self-improvement drive come from? Initially my interest in personal development was a totally reactive…

Ask Steve

This week I thought it would be fun to do something a little creative. Instead of writing full-length articles to explore certain topics in depth, I’ll make frequent shorter posts, and all of them will address reader questions that you submit. My current to-write list has enough ideas on it to last me a year.…
