Live Psychic Readings to Connect with the Deceased

To quote Shakespeare: "There are more things on heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy." This famous remark from Hamlet to his companion simply means that the world always will contain mysteries that some people refuse to acknowledge. For example, many people believe the wall between life and death is absolute. Others, though, such as mediums, take the view that communication can take place between this world and the next.

You can experience this possibility through a deceased loved ones psychic readings live.  A medium will guide you through the process, which involves communicating with the energy vibrations of a deceased soul or spirit. The principle behind the process comes down to the fact that everything in the universe has an energy that vibrates at a specific frequency. Your medium or channeling psychic seeks to align living frequencies with the person who has departed this world.

Direct Contact With Loved Ones

Sometimes known as a seance, this experience seeks to bring you into contact with someone you knew before death took him or her away. Your session could result in a close encounter that provides you with important answers and a palpable closeness to this spirit. Other times, you might only gain a faint sense of the feelings or thoughts of the deceased person. Each session is different and depends upon such factors as where in the afterlife your loved one resides or even on the spirit's willingness to communicate with you. 

It is important to understand that you should always expect the straightforward truth with trusted psychics online. This remains the case whether you search for answers from dream analysis, Tarot card readings, numerology, astrology, or other fields of knowledge and perception. Every time you connect online with a psychic you should anticipate the following:







While straightforward psychics tell it like it is they still seek to give you the best advice possible. Many times, you can act on their recommendations to achieve important life goals. This might pertain to such things as your career or your love life, or it could center around your search for deeper answers. Compassionate and inspirational psychics also provide valuable services.

Finding Closure

When a loved one passes away, you do not always get the chance to say everything you wanted. You might have an unsettled business that requires closure. Only the abilities of a talented psychic can give you an opportunity to reopen the lines of communication. A successful session could allow you to speak the words you need to say to achieve peace of mind and move on with your life.

Other options exist to improve your life through psychic readings. You can connect with pet & animal psychics online to achieve harmony with a non-human companion. While your vet can help with some issues, sometimes you need special intuition to solve concerns such as separation anxiety or nervousness.

Psychic readings are all about forming extraordinary connections. Reach out today and improve your life.

JobStreet shows the realities of hiring on social media in video series, urges employers to hire real talent

JobStreet by SEEK continues its initiative to empower companies in seeking better candidates in 2023 through a series of videos in line with their latest campaign, “Hire Real Talent,” baring the realities of hiring on social media.

Social networking channels are proven to be an effective way of communication, but using them for seeking talents may be more inefficient than hirers think—and this video series depicts a witty take on real-life scenarios and challenges among employers that use social media for posting their job vacancies.

Aside from encouraging hirers to utilize legitimate job platforms in their recruitment process, JobStreet’s video series attempts to show the truth behind social media recruiting: when you hire through social media, chances are you have no idea who you're interviewing.

The first video depicts an applicant who resembles the avatar of a newly set-up social media account, illustrating anonymity, a lack of character, or a genuine identity. Likewise, the second video demonstrates the difficulty of recognizing the true applicant whose profile photo is a family portrait. Finally, in the last video, JobStreet displays an applicant with experience working somewhere fictitious, portraying a lack of professionalism and accurate information.

As users are not required to authenticate their identities or credentials on most social media sites, it is challenging to discern between legitimate and fraudulent accounts. In addition, most social media users do not present themselves professionally and have little to no work experience information, which limits the hirers’ opportunity to fully scrutinize their applicants based on their criteria.

“While social media is a convenient tool to share information, we want to let hirers know that not everyone in your following or likes is looking for jobs—and the best and most appropriate way to recruit active jobseekers is to reach out to where they are searching for opportunities, and that is through official job platforms,” said Kim Viray, JobStreet Philippines Head of Marketing.

“In today's competitive and fast-changing world, we recognize the challenges that come with the hiring process, which is why we continuously empower hirers and provide them solutions that they need on top of offering a platform with millions of quality and qualified candidates,” he added.

JobStreet aims to make hiring more convenient and efficient for employers, particularly for SMEs. Through its free job ad postings, businesses are entitled to a 30-day free job posting credit upon registration on JobStreet, giving seamless access to over 14 million registered candidates with free use of powerful candidate management tools, easy-to-use job ad writing tools, inclusion in job recommendations, accessibility on multiple channels, and many other benefits, allowing hirers to focus on selecting the best candidate.

Its beneficial features assure targeted job posting to relevant potential applicants, and it may save time by using screening tools to check and match skills and credentials with the role.

When a Single Source Income is No Longer Enough: We Find Ways

"Juan is a loyal employee and he lost his job during the pandemic."
"Anna is a businesswoman and her business closed permanently because of the lockdowns."
"Carlos is an investor and the value of his investments dropped significantly."
"Jeremy is a rental property owner and many of his tenants left because they can now work from home."
"Emily is a supplier for the airline industry and many of her clients stopped ordering because they are temporarily non-operational." 

The sad part -- they are all breadwinners and their entire family is dependent on them. 

Sounds familiar? 

These are some of the common stories that you'll hear in the past 2 years during the pandemic and it has been an eye-opener for many of us. Personally, I realized that there is no security in being employed or simply having a business. There are a lot of things that could happen and having a single source of income is a risky way to live.  Now, I understand why financial gurus have been telling us that it is important to have multiple income streams.

Because it is important to have a BACKUP, BACKUP, BACKUP source of income in case one of them fails. 

However, the biggest question is... Is having multiple income streams possible for ordinary Filipinos? What if you are not from a rich family? 

The answer is YES! Even if we are not born with a silver spoon, Filipinos are "madiskarte" and WE ALWAYS FIND WAYS. Thus, having multiple income streams is still possible. 

Sharing with you three (3) ways how you add another income stream.


Starting a business is easier said than done. First, you need to come up with a business idea. If you still don't have one, start with what are you passionate about and see if can potentially solve a problem/ gap. 

Once you have that business idea. Determine if it is feasible by creating a business plan. This is also the best time to check if have available suppliers (in case you go into retail or manufacturing) and if you have a market for it. 

If you find your business idea feasible then you'll need the capital to get started. 
So, what if you don't have the money? Well, that shouldn't stop you from pursuing this endeavor. Here are some ways how you can generate capital for your business.
  • Launch a crowdfunding campaign. There have been a lot of crowdfunding success stories and you can be one of them too. You just need to have a good product and the right pitch. 
  • Raise capital from family and friends who would be interested to invest in your business. Make sure to determine exactly how much funds you need and the equity that you are willing to give away. 
  • Apply for a loan. There are a lot of SME Loans available in the market. Banco de Oro (BDO) for instance offers funding options tailored for SMEs ranging from 1-50 million. They even have the SME Ready Check which works like a revolving fund that is ideal for buying inventory or supplies to address seasonal or bulk orders. You can also use it as a working capital to address operational requirements. 
The best part? You can even apply for a loan online: 


Did you know that for as low as Php 10,000 you can invest in Bonds, Money Market Funds, or even the Stock Market? 

Well, I am also surprised to find out that you don't really need a huge amount to start investing. Different trust and investment products suited to your different needs and risk appetite are readily available. The opportunity to invest is now possible even for ordinary Filipinos. It's easy and accessible. 

One of my favorite investment products is the Peso Money Market Fund of BDO, it earns relatively higher than your savings and time deposit accounts yet it doesn't even have a minimum holding period. This means that you have full access and control over your funds in case of emergencies. (Please note though that experts advise staying invested for at least 6 months to maximize earning potential.) 


Upwork, Freeup, and Fiverr are just one of the many freelancing marketplaces available today and it wouldn't hurt to have an online side gig that we can offer to international clients. 

If you have skills in content writing, graphic design, or video editing, then you can work on fixed projects during your free time. I have been doing this for years already and there is really no competition here. Your target clientele is global and there are so many foreign clients who are eager to hire Filipinos for their talent, hard work, and skills. 

Receiving payments is not even a concern because our trusted banks accept international remittances so, your clients can pay you directly through bank deposits. You can even open a US Dollar Savings Account for as low as a $200 initial deposit in BDO. 

Indeed, through innovation and technology, we can definitely make things happen for us where having multiple income streams is no longer just wishful thinking but a reality for ordinary Filipino families. Thanks to our partners like BDO who have been there making ways for every Filipino family since 1968.

Book Feature: Dive the Depths: Condensed Life Lessons of a Mother to her Son + Exclusive Interview with Author Jenny Mae Albinio

"The mother is the first teacher of the child. The message she gives that child, that child gives to the world.”— Malcolm X

Many of the most important life lessons we have, we learned from our mother. She has been our first teacher and as we grow older, she continues to give us pieces of wisdom as we navigate through life. How lucky we are if they can stay with us forever... 

However, in reality, it is not always the case for everyone. Some grow up without having a mom while others lose them at a very young age. 

Knowing how unpredictable life is, this is the reason the author wrote a letter to her son, condensing every life lesson learned in her lifetime just in case she won't have the chance to share it with her child later in life.

Dive the Depths: Condensed Life Lessons of a Mother to Her Son is an inspirational nonfiction for Teens/Teens-at-Heart. 

The book was written by Author Jenny Mae P. Albinio, a Pediatric Junior Consultant in Iloilo City, and a Fellow of the Philippine Academy of Aesthetic and Age Management Medicine, Inc. 

She is an aspiring writer/poet and the author of the book entitled, "Tales of Soliloquy at mga Tula ni Tamaraw: A Collection of Poems and Torrents of Thoughts” under 8letters Publication.

She is also a blue belt jiujitsu practitioner under DEFTAC-Ribeiro Jiujitsu, advocates women empowerment, and abhors any kind of abuse and injustice. She remains a diverse reader, full of joie de vivre, and loves traveling, hiking, living in the moment, food, nature, cats, and martial arts. Her best asset is her brain saturated with wit and humor, which has always been one of her saving graces.

Today, we are lucky to have the opportunity to have this exclusive interview with her. 

1. Can you share with us something about the book that isn't in the blurb?

This essay turned into a book, is a gift for my son's 16th birthday in May 9. By the way, we actually share the same birthday. This essay was originally published in Circles Volume 2 (2023, 8lettersPublication), as part of an Anthology.

2. What inspired the idea for your latest book?

This was inspired by my mom's words in Hiligaynon: "Biskan ano matabo, salumon ta ka." (No matter what, I'll dive the depths for you.) Also, the poem "Desiderata" by Max Ehrman inspired me to write nugget-size reminders for my son that he can easily browse when times are overwhelming, and I'm not there to comfort and guide him.

3. How long did it take you to complete the book?

This is just an essay turned into a book, so the essay itself took a few minutes. It's the editing and revising that took quite a while. Also, the time looking for a local artist that will create the cover took some time.

4. What part of the book was most challenging to write and why?

I find the last part the most challenging. When you're trying to compress everything you've learned in a book, you'll feel you're going to miss a lot. So in the letter to my son, I've mentioned that there's still a lot to learn, and most lessons he'll learn along the way.

5. What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

I hope the readers will be reminded how precious their mothers are, and the importance of showing how much they love their mothers while they still can. I also pray that the parents will learn to respect their children as an individual and give them the freedom to explore their own identity, reminding them that as parents we are for them, no matter what.

6. If you’re planning a sequel or writing the next book, can you share a tiny bit about your plans for it?

This crossed my mind. A sequel is a big probability. Maybe just to fill in the lessons I missed writing in the first installment. We'll see.

7. Where can they buy your books or find out more about you?

This book will be released soon by my publisher at (Stay tuned for announcements) 

In the meantime, they can also follow me on my social media pages:


Thank you, Author Jenny for writing this beautiful and inspirational book. Your son is so lucky to have you as a mom and we look forward to learning to the life lessons you imparted. Also, we are grateful to have this opportunity to have this exclusive interview with you.

We love supporting authors! Do you want your book to be featured?

RHEA Generics Shares Practical Tips to Avoid Silent Heart Risks

In a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) – or diseases of the heart and blood vessels – are responsible for more than 30% of deaths in the Philippines in 2021. Often referred to as ‘silent killer’, these are diseases that cause minimal or no symptoms and are capable of causing death if not treated, such as heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. Most people are not even aware that they have it consequently, and do not know how to protect themselves against it.

Now, more than ever, actions must be taken to prevent these silent killers, and understanding how to take care of our hearts' health can be the first step. RHEA Generics, one of the Philippines’ most trusted names in the field of generic medicine, shares some healthy lifestyle changes that will improve your heart health:

Stay away from tobacco

Chemicals in cigarette smoke cause the cells that line blood vessels to swell and inflame which can narrow the blood vessels and lead to various cardiovascular conditions. One of the effective ways to live a heart disease-free and healthy lifestyle is to stop smoking or using smokeless tobacco. RHEA Generics suggests that even if you’re not a smoker, you need to veer away from secondhand smoke. After a year of quitting, the risk of heart disease is about half that of a smoker. Fifteen years after quitting, the risk of heart disease is the same as that of a non-smoker.

Prevent alcohol use

According to the WHO, alcohol consumption has been linked to more than 200 diseases and injury conditions, including cardiovascular diseases. While most Filipinos report their alcohol drinking occasionally, binge drinking is common in the country. There is no safe level for drinking alcohol, so RHEA Generics recommends that it is better to avoid drinking alcohol altogether to protect your heart.

Keep a healthy weight

The National Nutrition Council (NNC) mentioned that 28.7% of Filipino adults aged 20 to 59 years old are overweight while 9.3% are obese. Being overweight — especially around the middle of the body — increases the risk of heart disease. Excess weight can lead to conditions that increase the chances of developing heart disease — including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. With this, RHEA Generics emphasizes stress reduction, healthy eating, exercise, and regular exercise.

Be active by increasing physical activities

Improved levels of cholesterol and other blood lipids, as well as improved blood pressure and weight management, are all benefits of physical activity. RHEA Generics recommends that even as part of their regular daily routines, inactive adults might begin with small amounts of physical activity and gradually increase its duration, frequency, and intensity. Adults are advised to engage in at least 150 minutes of moderate physical exercise each week (such as brisk walking, stair climbing, dancing, gardening, or household chores that may cause a mild increase in heart rate).

Get regular health screenings

Normal blood pressure and blood sugar check by a health professional are crucial in maintaining a healthy heart. Some people do not exhibit symptoms even if they already have high blood pressure – and it can hurt your heart. RHEA Generics encourages discussing any behavioral concerns with your healthcare provider, such as an unhealthy diet, a lack of exercise, or the use of alcohol or tobacco, so they can help you plan the lifestyle changes you need to make to improve your heart health.

Eat a heart-healthy diet

One's risk of developing heart disease can be minimized by consuming a balanced diet that prioritizes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean proteins while limiting saturated and trans fats, added sweets, and sodium. That said, RHEA Generics promotes eating healthy by avoiding the consumption of processed, canned, and fast food. Replace sweetened snacks such as doughnuts, cookies, and the like with fresh fruit and vegetables and if thirsty, substitute sweetened beverage sodas and sweetened juices with water.

However, access to sufficient, safe, and nutritious food for an active and healthy life often comes at a high cost.

On top of this, most basic healthcare services are sometimes inaccessible and expensive. In fact, 99 percent of Filipinos are unable to buy prescription medications due to their price, according to the Ulat ng Bayan September report of Pulse Asia released by the DOH.

To help Filipinos attain affordable healthcare, RHEA Generics remains accessible and affordable without compromising its world-class quality and safe health products.

“Every Filipino has the right to accessible quality health care which is why we at RHEA Generics make sure that our products remain affordable. We continue to innovate and improve our product to reach every Filipino family,” said Philusa Corporation President and General Manager Neogin Evangelista.

RHEA Generics recently partnered with international pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Sanofi to ensure that Filipinos have access to medicines, especially for hypertension, heart attack, and stroke prevention assuring every Filipino that their partner in healthcare is associated with reliable medical professionals around the world.

To know more, you can drop by the nearest Mercury Drug store near you. Always make sure to only purchase medicine with a doctor’s prescription, as medicine taken without one can be harmful.
