Manifesting: What about Taking Action?

One of the most pervasive misconceptions about this whole “woo-woo” approach to manifesting with the Law of Attraction is that you merely have to think about or visualize the stuff you want. . .  and that’s it. Then your manifestation just magically drops...

Do you believe in UFOs?

One hot summer weekend, I attended a gathering in a large city park billed as the “3rd Annual Worldwide Summoner Event.” Summoner of what, you ask? Well, some people hail cabs, some beckon fate, and apparently a scant handful of humans—including a Los...

Where does the Universe begin?

Dear Woo-Woo Debbi, Where does the universe begin? Gavin G., London, UK   Dear Gavin, I really like this question. It’s so simple and yet, so deep. Ever since I was a wee woo-woo lass, I posed a similar question unto myself: “What is...

Those wacky paranormal ’70s shows

My fascination with the paranormal was kindled long before I started reading woowoo books—hell, probably even before I could read.  Mostly, I blame the 1970s for my strange obsessions. Besides devouring library books on ESP, that decade found me staring at the boob tube,...

My Weekend with the Hay House Cult

One of those insomniacal wee-hour whims had me perusing the registration page for the Hay House “I Can Do It” Ignite conference. The slate was chock full of potentially inspiring speakers, but mostly I was excited to see Anita Moorjani talk about her near-death-experience...
