I recently volunteered in my son’s fourth grade class and was overwhelmed by the energy of 34 nine and ten year old kids in one seemingly small room. Walking in on a Monday morning, the teacher was swimming in a sea of small children with backpacks, lunch bags, papers and questions. I was so happy my job that day was making copies – in another room.
I don’t know how this amazing woman does her job. To have that much patience must really be a gift from God. Seriously!
I love the role I have as a Spiritual Teacher. I don’t have to worry about hall passes or missing assignments. I just get to be the tour guide to the light. It is such a joy for me to see the light bulb click on inside a student’s head and witness them really embrace their Intuitive gifts.
I’ve been teaching a lot the last few months and I’ve had the blessing of seeing many students awaken in this very way. During a recent Mediumship class, a student was obviously nervous about participating in a psychometry exercise. Each person had brought a personal items of someone who had passed, and the students were to hold one of these items and pick up energies and imprints about the person who had owned the item. I walked the class through the exercise and it came this man’s time to share what came through for him. He had chosen a wallet from the group of items, and prefaced his sharing time with remarks of, “I don’t know what I’m doing,” and “I’m a beginner, I’m not good at this stuff.” But when he took a deep breath and rattled off the impressions he received from holding the wallet, I could see a big smile paint across the woman sitting across from him. She had brought the wallet to class. It was her father’s. And the man NAILED information about him that no one else in the room would have known – he had a moustache, he loved baseball, he had to quit smoking, etc. All from picking up, holding a wallet and opening the door to connect. I will treasure that moment for as long as I live. It is a priceless example to me of trust. He had never done anything like this before, and even though he was unsure of himself, he still tired. And wow! No words can describe the energy in the room as he was validated for the information he brought through.
In another recent workshop, Channeling to be exact, a student came up to me and asked, “Are you sure I can do this?” She was very hesitant about receiving information from Source, thinking she would just be making up the messages that might come through. I reassured her and asked her to take the pressure off herself and to just be in the flow. When it came time for a group channeling exercise, this student brought through the most amazing, pure message from home. Another ah-ha moment I will always reflect back on. She was so proud of herself later and claimed that is seemed effortless.
Witnessing connection to Spirit through students realizing their abilities is such a blessing to me. It’s not because I’m an incredible teacher. It’s just because I know a few trusted roadways and maps on how to get to the light.
Life is about taking the leap and trusting. You never know what you’re able to do until you try.
I was guided to channel a message last Friday night at a Spiritual Circle. Here is what came through:
It is a grateful blessing to all of us who gather here with you this night, this moment. For indeed there are many of us. We have waited in anticipation for this moment, for you to call us in.
We are a collective energy from the other side. Just as all of you are collective energies in your own right, you are all part of the All That Is. Each of your hearts connects with one another. Each of your souls connects with one another, just as you connect with us. We are each the same. And isn’t that beautiful? And isn’t that amazing? And isn’t that magic?
Magic-what an interesting term. For many things can be called and described as magic: love, light, manifestation, abundance. There are so many things that fall into this category. The thrill and excitement of anticipation is quite magical in itself. Each of you is created with the vibration of magic, for magic is in creation itself. It is that Spark of Mother/Father God that resides inside your heart that speaks to you, that is the light itself in which you were created. Its magic, and Dear Ones, that is you. You are a beautiful, magical being of light. And it is only when you lose your way that you begin to doubt that fact. It is only when you play into the ego-mind, that cynicism, that doubt, that you cloud your judgment of the magic that is within.
Let us remind you now of that beautiful spark of light within you. Take a deep breath, Dear Ones, connect with that Spark of light inside you and allow it to glow. Visualize what that is inside of you. Give it a name, a color, a vibration, a frequency, a feeling, a sound – it doesn’t matter. Just connect with it, for that is the magical part of you that is inside and also exists inside everyone else in existence.
As you connect with this magical part of yourself, this Spark of light that is you, it creates a doorway for you to connect with that same Spark of light within others. It is much like a web of light. It is much like the stars within the galaxy, how they connect through constellations, how they create different patterns within the night’s sky. So being, for you as well connect with your own light, with your own frequencies, with your own magic.
Magic is very powerful, Dear Ones. It is not about trickery. It is not about illusion. It is about truth. It is about the truth of who you are as a soul. You are not merely a human being. You are a soul playing the role of human in this very moment and in the past as well. It is magical indeed, for you come into this world seemingly forgetting your connection and your spark. But through your experience, through your life as a human you come into different realizations and remembrances about home, about that Spark inside you, about the magic. And you begin to remember your truth. And you begin to connect with your soul, to know who you truly are, to feel your own power, and to realize that you are never alone.
You are not small, Dear Ones. You are greatness. You are light itself. And indeed, isn’t that magical as well? As you go about your day and the self-talk comes into your mind of doubt, of worry and stress, we urge you to step back, take a deep breath; connect with that Spark that is inside that is you. Remember the magic that you are and how you were created, how you constantly are in every moment. It is time to wake up from the dream, Dear Ones. It is time to own your power. It is time, once again, to practice the magic that is you. For as you stand in your own light, you spread this light to others. And that, indeed, is magic as well.
Remember who you are. Trust and know that in every moment there is light all around you. Each and every one of you is connected to all of us. We are each the same. We each vibrate at the same frequency of light that resides inside that spark that is you. You are the all that is. You are Mother/Father God, for this is how you are created and this is how you will always be. Trust in that, Dear Ones, and don’t be afraid to practice the magic that is you.
It has been a great joy coming through to you this night. And know that we believe in your magic.
Allowing Spirit to Guide Me…(And Other Adventures on the Way to El Pollo Loco)
Before I begin my story, let me just caution you that what I am going to share with you I DO NOT RECOMMEND. This is something that happens to me in my line of work, and I don’t advise it for anyone. That WARNING in place, let me continue….
A few weeks ago, I was into the middle of my day doing sessions and as I looked at the clock my stomach began growling. I had exactly enough time to run to El Pollo Loco – a tasty Mexican Chicken restaurant with a drive thru window – grab some lunch and eat it at home before my next session and then pick up the kids from school. YAY! I was excited.
I get in my car, crank up some tunes and am on my way. I drive a few blocks and suddenly things begin to
shift. I fall into trance.
I hear my guides begin to speak with me about a little girl who is having some issues with disconnect going
on in her brain. My guides show me the little girl’s brain in holographic form. I am shown the synaptic
pathways and where there are disconnects that need some extra energy sent to remove energetic blocks and assist with the information flow of the brain. My guides then walk me through the process of connecting to her pineal gland and completing a clearing of this energy center, as well as show me the method in which her mother, a Reiki Master, can do this process as well. Fascinating stuff! It all becomes crystal clear to me that I need to share this information with the Mom.
I realize, at this point, I am pulling into the parking lot at El Pollo Loco. My stomach is still growling…..hmmmm….do I ditch lunch and call the Mom? How the hell did I get here anyway? There’s a line at El Pollo Loco in drive thru…..hey…I can do both! I make the call to the Mom and start clammering on about what information came through, trying my best not to sound like a psycho lunatic and thanking God that she is open to this stuff. Then it’s my turn in line.
“Can you hold on please? ” (Mom holds)
“Yes, I’d like a chicken combo with beans please. Thank you.” (give my order to drive thru)
“Sorry about that. Yes, so then you connect with her pineal gland and sense for synaptic pathways that
appear weak. You will get a vibe on what kind of energy or symbol to send, it may even appear as a color or sound frequency.”
As I answer the mother’s questions, it becomes my turn to pay for and pick up my order. I am speaking on my car’s bluetooth system so it’s on speakerphone and as I am speaking about pineal glands, brain
connection and energy work, the cashier gives me a funny look but my order comes out REALLY FAST with extra napkins and everything! I can only imagine her thoughts on what she was seeing and hearing.
While I don’t recommend trancing out while you drive, I am so happy that I was open to the experience.
Spirit connects with us when it is divine time. Had I waited till I had a few extra moments to spare in the day, I could’ve missed that amazing sequence of information and techniques I knew nothing about previously.
You never know when Spirit is going to give you a message. It might even be on your way to El Pollo Loco.
This is one reason why I avoid McDonalds…..Those Golden Arches might just be a portal of some kind. I went there once and something stuck with me for the last 27 years. I call him my husband. LOL!
Sensing Spirits and Angels can be absolutely incredible! Being able to connect people with their loved ones on the other side is also very rewarding and healing. Some of what I see and sense is not comfortable, and has taken some getting used to. Some of it I will never understand and there are those instances when I will put up the barrier and down right demand that I not come into connection with certain energies.
Here’s a recent experience I’ve been dealing with over the last few days:
I was in the shower (and water is a great conductor of energy, btw, so some of our greatest visions and connections will happen around water) and a flash of a scene played out in my head. I saw a young man I connected with years ago. His face was vivid and clear. In the next instance I saw him on the floor, looking like he was passed out. Then I saw his soul leave his body. All this happened in a matter of moments. I hadn’t seen him in years. I was not close to him, had no way of contacting him, so I brushed it off. Just a weird flash of energy, I thought. Nothing more, nothing less.
Well that’s what I thought….until days later I heard through the grapevine that this man had died. He had died a sudden death, collapsing and being found hours later. The news saddened me to my core. It’s not that I felt responsible, for I know there was no way of me preventing this. I was sad because he was so young and such a beautiful soul with an amazing heart. The kind of guy that would literally give you the shirt off his back. I couldn’t figure out why I had the premonition. I don’t want premonitions. They make me feel helpless. It’s one thing to question if a certain event will happen and it’s another to be handed the information, whether you want it or not.
Years ago, when I had my first premonition, I was about 6 or 7 years old and I saw the death of a family member before it happened. That continued, and with family members I seemed to be accepting of it. Then ten or twelve years ago, I was sitting at my computer and I was shown a very intense scene – a father and son were washed away by a flash flood. I saw their bodies under the overpass, I got the name of the street. I felt the pain of their last breaths, the overwhelm of the Dad knowing he couldn’t save his son, the pressure as their lungs filled with water. I wrote the vision down and the next day looked up the street name. It happened to be in a town where a father and son were missing. They later found the bodies near the overpass of that street.
I was mad! Why on Earth would God give me this information if there was nothing I could do? I didn’t want to feel people’s deaths…I didn’t want to experience their pain. What was I going to do, call up a police department in Tim Buck Two and say oh, by the way, I was having a vision and this is what I saw? Who would believe me? Even I was second guessing my sanity.
A short time later I was asked to tap into a missing child’s case. A friend has asked for my input. I took the young girl’s photo and connected with her energy. I saw her in an open field and she was playing. Then I saw a man approach her. He lured her to his car where he did terrible things to her and later killed the child. I stopped the scene was it was playing out. It knocked me off kilter. I didn’t want to see this, didn’t want to feel it, and couldn’t separate my emotions from connecting with the evil coming from the man and the helplessness of the child. It made me physically ill. I threw up. I had an anxiety attack. It was more than my soul could bare.
I decided to make a pact with God, my guides and my Angels. I had the big pow-wow. I outlined what I was willing to do to be of service – energy work, shamanic travel, reading, connecting with the other side to bring through information to assist others. I told them I would slay the demons if need be and remove dark entities from people, homes and spaces. But what I would NOT do was allow my abilities to be used to see into situations I could offer no help or assistance. I did not want to see things in the future that were beyond my control and I did not want to be involved in murder cases or violence against children. I had to set my clear boundaries of what felt right for me.
Since that time, I’ve never had an issue. One big pow-wow, the boundaries were set and I thought it was all good, at least up until a few days ago. Why was I getting this information? I wasn’t asking for it, that’s for sure.
So tonight, I sat down with Arch Angel Michael. I wanted answers. I wanted to know why our “deal” was broken. What was the greater lesson here, cause all I was feeling was sadness and helplessness.
Arch Angel Michael’s response:
Breathe deeply, for I know you are upset. This has rocked you to your core. It makes no logical sense so allow me to show you the light within the situation.
When you first connected with this man, you saw his light. You felt his heart. You saw the passion for life within him and within the work he brought to this world. You experienced his greatness and this energy was imprinted in your mind. Though you had no personal connection with him, he impacted your thoughts on life, on humanity and on the light that can exist within a human form. You literally came into contact with his soul that day. You made that strong of a connection with him.
When he left this world, you felt that as well. The days that came before his exit point, as a soul he was pondering his demise, going over the issues of being complete with his lesson and path. You FELT THIS. You felt this soul that touched your life contemplating his death. It was merely an awareness coming into your consciousness. It was nothing more and nothing less. Just as we are all one, part of the All That Is, you felt the decision in the works for him to leave his human body and step completely into the light. You sensed the change in energy and vibration. Do not take this as a bad thing. It is not negative. Look at the amazing gift this man gave you – the ability to see a soul, to feel a heart, and to see light within motion.
Do not grieve the loss or the suddenness of the experience. Celebrate the way one soul touched another. Celebrate the realization and confirmation once again that the soul is eternal.
We are all one in the same. We are of the same light, created with the same unconditional love. Understand that as a soul you have the opportunity to touch the lives of others just as this man has touched yours. He impacted you because you chose to be open to the experience. You chose to open your heart and your eyes to truly see him in his entirety. How could that be anything less than a miracle?
Allow yourself to see the light in this, my Dear. Let go of the false belief that this was a bad experience.
Well, put in that perspective, how could I view this as anything less than a gift?
We really don’t know the impact we have on others. I spent less than a few hours time with this man, and yet he’s brought a profound awareness into my life. Think of how you impact others. When we take the time to be aligned with who we really are, we shine our brightest.
I am grateful to have connected with such a beautiful spirit. He is much loved and forever imprinted upon my heart.
Love Never Ends; Even Through Death, A Mother’s Love and Understanding Continues
I receive a lot of emails and questions from clients in session about deceased loved ones. Are they okay? How do they feel about me? Are they still angry? Do I make them proud? Can you tell them I am sorry for what happened?
When we are in the state of grief, it is very easy to fall into the trap of guilt, blame and shame. You know, the “could have, would have, should have” scenarios that we play over and over inside our minds. What many don’t realize is that when a soul transitions over into the other side, they leave behind not only their physical body but also their ego mind. They do not carry with them judgment or prior hurts or disappointment in others. The soul moves onto a higher state of consciousness. In the midst of that consciousness is pure unconditional love.
I recently had a session for a man who lost his mother. He was her caregiver and while taking care of his elderly mother at home, he encountered his own health issues that were quite severe and time consuming. When his mother passed, he worried that he hadn’t done enough and that he could have somehow prevented her death. He was transfixed with the look on her face as the paramedics took her on the stretcher from their home to the hospital. It was a look of helplessness that plagued him.
Our session was conducted through his sister who came to my office with questions in hand. She is an extremely Spiritual person, and had made peace with her Mother’s passing. As soon as she pulled up in her car, I began to feel her Mother’s presence. We started the session and there was a surge of strong emotion that swept over the entire room.
The son, whom I will call Tom (not his real name), wanted to know if his mother was all right. His mother, whom I will call Sarah (not her real name) explained that she was wonderful. She loved not being in a physical body and now being able to do everything she ever wanted to do that she couldn’t in her former life. Sarah explained to him that it was time for him to let go of the guilt he was holding onto. She went into great detail of how she planned her exit point to be the way it was and the time it happened for many different reasons. If he were completely well, he would’ve taken her to the doctor sooner, which would have resulted in her being placed in a care facility which is something she did not want. She chose to leave in the way that she did, because she did not want to burden her family.
Her love for her son was quite intense, and at times as I conveyed her messages and answers to his questions I found myself raising my voice to make sure her point was coming across. More than a few times, tears were streaming down my face as I used her words to convey to her son how much she loved him and how she wanted him to stop beating himself up over what he thought he should have done. “It was MY CHOICE,” she said, over and over with extreme emphasis. “This is how I wanted it to be,” she explained and at one point in the session she even came through with his full first name, Thomas, which I whispered at the end of one of her answers.
The client’s sister asked, “What did you say?” I repeated the full name. She let me know that her mother called her brother this when she was adamant about something.
The session was probably the most powerful and passionate session of mediumship I’ve ever experienced. Sarah’s love for her son was so strong, there was absolutely no way that she was not going to make her feelings about his situation known. She made sure to cover all the bases with him so that he could move to a place of healing and understanding.
As a mother myself, I know that I would move Heaven and Earth for my children, especially if they were blaming themselves for something they thought they could have prevented. The amount of love that flowed through this beautiful woman’s heart to her son was a true miracle and blessing. It is just more proof that love is everlasting. Our souls and the love we feel for others are eternal.
I am happy to say that Sarah’s loving words have helped her son move to a space of healing. I am forever blessed to have connected with these wonderful souls and feel the immense love they share for one another.
I’ve recently started something new on my Facebook Fan Page. I’ve been receiving lots of emails from people with questions about Spirit, so I thought I would answer and share them in the public forum on my page. I leave out the names of people to protect their privacy, but share the info as so many of us are looking for answers. As with everything I share, if it doesn’t resonate, please let it go. No harm, no foul!
So I’ve decided to share with you here, some of the letters I’ve been receiving, but first I want to express an experience I had yesterday:
Doing the work that I do, when I connect with a client I sometimes receive the gift of feeling their connection with a loved one who has passed. Today, a young 17 yr old girl and her mother came to see me. The teenager has been bullied and emotionally abused throughout her school career by staff and other students and has had several “labels” placed upon her that has left her self-esteem in the gutter. She is a truly loving and gifted soul and asked if her grandfather, who had recently passed, was mad at her.
His energy filled the room and was so strong it threw me for a loop. He started expressing his deep love for her and asked her to let go of the guilt and shame she’d been feeling. This girl has the most inherent and beautiful gift of healing touch, and her grandfather spoke to her about that.
With tears streaming down my face (and by this time none of us in the room were dry-eyed) he relayed the message through me of thanks and gratitude to her. Do you realize, he said, the gift you gave me? With the last embrace we shared, your healing energy passed through me and allowed me to cross easily and without problems. You were a vital part of me letting go. Thank you. You are such a light, so gifted and I know this, your mother knows this, so many of us know this but you do not. It is time for you to OWN your gifts and see the light within yourself. This is who you REALLY are – NOT what others have told you. BELIEVE in you as I do.
He then had me look directly into her eyes and ask her, “Can you own this?”
She stammered…..”I think so,” and I told her he was not convinced with her answer. She then repeated confidently, “Yes. I can own it.”
It was like watching a completely different person. Her posture and body language changed. Her voice was more confident. It was like a miracle before my very eyes.
We NEVER know when that small thing we may do will touch another’s heart so deeply. One hug made the difference to her Grandpa and his thanks meant the world to her.
I just happen to come across you Facebook by chance, I felt drawn to it. Must be a reason for that. I was wondering if I could ask you a question? I read your profile, and I realize that I have felt the same way as you did growing up. I felt different as child. I always have know that I had some sort of a gift or ability. I don’t always see spirits, but I have heard them. Many mediums and psychics that I have been to have told me that I have medium and psychic gifts, as well as being an emotional/spiritual empath. People all my life have been drawn to me to seek out advice. Even total strangers.
My best friend died April 2012 in a car accident. When that happened, I never felt it was going to happen, I didn’t sense it, nothing. I got so upset by that, I sort of gave up on my gifts. I felt like I should have known, so could have helped her, or stopped it in some way. My gifts are still here, and slowly coming back. I’ve had many past lives, and I’m a very old soul… I guess I’m just wondering how to put all of this together so all this makes sense, and not so chaotic? I feel sometimes like the gift runs me, instead of me running or controlling the gift, if that makes sense? I’m sorry, I hope I’m not bothering you… I just need some guidance.
First off, my condolences on the death of your friend. I know this has hit you very hard. To try to apply logic to spiritual gifts weighs very heavily on getting the ego mind involved. To me, it’s like trying to apply logic to emotion – it never works. You can get a grasp and a feel for spirit, but then a larger part of it is trust and faith. My sense is that you are indeed, a very strong medium. Your intuition is strong and you have gifts of empathic sense and clairvoyance. You’ve been doing this work since the beginning of time and it is something you are passionate about and that is a large piece of your heart. For most of us, it is very difficult to read the energies of those we are close to. Your not being able to sense your friend’s death is not a failure by any means. Had you seen this coming and not been able to prevent it, the guilt that would follow you the rest of your life would be a heavy burden not many would be able to live with. For the benefit of your healing, I offer you a message from your friend: “All is not lost. I am with you always. I appear when you need me and when you think I am not there. I come to you in the words of songs that mean so much to you. I am here now for you to act still as your friend but at this time on a deeper level than before. Allow me to help you to see all the beauty within the gifts that are inside you. I SEE YOU CLEARLY. I SEE YOUR LIGHT. You can’t hide from me. I’ve seen who you really are since the day we met. Let go of any hard feelings about my death. I am at peace. I love you and am always here for you.”
Angel Blessings to you, Dear One. Thank you for taking the time to write to me, Danielle
“Do you have any thoughts or ideas on grounding techniques or rituals?”
I DO! Grounding is very important, especially for those who are sensitive and do any kind of spiritual practice as well as when we become taxed by our emotions. Here are some of my favorites:
1. Lay on the ground or next to a tree. This gives the comfort and peace of being connected to the Earth. You don’t necessarily have to be outside to do this. You can lay on the floor of a hotel room or apartment and with your intention bring in the vibration of the Earth. Sitting next to a tree is also very grounding and comforting. I like to envision connecting with the root system of the tree as I lean up against the trunk and feel it’s power and beauty. 2. Yoga or Tai Chi. These energetic movements are very profound and easily ground one’s vibrational field into the physical body. 3. Taking a purposeful walk. Go for a walk and take each step on purpose – think about where your feet will land, how it feels, notice the sounds and smells around you – make it a sensory experience. 4. CHOCOLATE – My FAVORITE!!!! There is a very grounding aspect of chocolate on the physical body. I don’t know what it is, and I don’t care….LOL…it WORKS and I LOVE IT!
” I have seen paranormal things here and there since i was little, not all the time but i did have a couple scary encounters. Once I got older, It seemed like every house I’ve lived in is haunted including the one I have now. I feel things now more than see things…i feel mostly others emotions. I grew up in Ky and in a southern Baptist holy roller church so my mother instilled in me that everything paranormal is demonic and against the bible. Once i turned 30, it seemed like all my fear was gone and i was just curious so I became a ghost hunter. Long story short, I have no idea what I am. I’ve even been in church at a funeral and felt surrounded by angels. that was the only time that’s happened. My abilities differ so i have no idea what i am. Could you be able to help me with this? Would u have to meet me to be able to give me an answer? I’ve struggled with this for about a year, researching and everything else. I was thinking i was a spirit sensitive or empath but I’m not sure thanks!”
Thanks for your question. I am picking up that you are a natural medium, that is why you sense spirits so easily. It’s funny how we all want to know what our intuitive strength is. I find with my clients and students that most want to find out their role or title so that they can better understand. With so many classifications out there, this can be difficult within itself. With you, I see your empathic ability is quite strong as well as you interpret energy through all of your senses making you clairsentient. Please remember that though these are very strong aspects of your intuitive sense that these are not the only ways you may get information. We are all different as to how we process energy. My guides use the analogy of someone who has a very high taste sensitivity for wine – they can take a sip, pass it over their taste buds and tell you the vintage. I could taste that same wine and tell you whether I liked it or not, but I wouldn’t have the same ability to process it through my senses as the wine expert. Make sense? (no pun intended )
“Hello Danielle, I used to have a strong intuitive connection but I feel it is blocked. Does this happen? Also, why would I continue to have a strong pull toward a young man who has told me that he wants only friendship? He is not a man I normally would go for either BUT I can’t stop these feelings. He says he has no interest so why am I having a hard time letting go? I usually move on quickly. I am confused mentally and spiritually on this subject. Will you please help me?”
Hi. At times our intuition can become blocked because of fear or trauma that has occurred. My question to you would be what happened in the months previous to you not being able to fully connect? There is a trigger here.
In regards to the attraction towards the man, this is what Steve Rother of Lightworker refers to as “bleed-through”. Allow me to explain. Our souls are so vast and large they cannot exist within one body, therefore our souls occupy several physical vehicles at one time. You may have heard of parallel universes or other dimensions. Well, our souls occupy bodies in other dimensions at the same time – eleven other dimensions to be exact. In another dimension (another parallel life of yours) you are experiencing a very loving relationship with this man. That is why the draw is so strong for you. By coming to this realization, that the connection exists in a parallel life, it helps to release the attraction from the here and now. At times an energetic cord cutting is also needed to severe the connection.
“Hello I have a question about a loved one that has passed that I feel is trying to communicate with us here she is coming to us in our dreams I myself had one dream of her last week and she was showing me her earrings and what I really focused on was her red sweater..my sister in law had a dream about her and in my sister- in-laws dream the focused on her showing her red earrings I do not know what she is trying to say and I am a healer and I do not understand can you please help me???? ”
Hi, thanks for writing in. Our loved ones often come to us through our dream state. It is an easier time of connection because our conscious mind is at rest and our subconscious mind is active and receptive. With this person that you mention, I feel she is showing you signs of her that are very distinctive of her energy. She wants to make sure that you know it is her – the earrings are something she always loved. They brought out a playfulness and feminine power within her. She’s coming around because she wants to make her presence known to the family – that she is still with you. That is why she is showing up in other dreams as well. This is a way of creating the connection, to see how receptive you are. By acknowledging her energy, you allow her to utilize other methods to connect with her.
“Hello, I was so happy to find your page. I am really enjoying it so far.
I am an empath and intuitive. I feel as if my gifts are really starting to get stronger and im wondering if you can advise me on how to be cautious of absorbing others energy. With my work I am in and out of others homes all day. I often feel very drained afterwords and am curious if im picking up others negativity or baggage. Also how can I distinguish the intuitive voice of spirit from my own thoughts. Im on a very zig zag path right now and really need to have things made clear. Can you tell me of some sort of meditation or other practice that might really help me to get more in touch with my intuition? Thank you.”
Thanks so much for writing in! You will find lots of tools for empaths to clear and disconnect on my page. Check out the white light exercise video I’ve posted as well as the other methods of filtering. One other way that always works well for me is to brush my hands against on another, imagining brushing the energies I’ve picked up from somewhere else, then I place one hand over my heart and the other hand squared (as if you were swearing on a stack of bibles in court with your hand raised) and then say, “I disconnect and release all energies other than my own.” This works well and it’s very easy. I also like the physical act of it. Feels very complete and powerful.
To work with your intuition, I encourage using Angel Oracle Cards. You can play around with these and get lots of good insight. It helps to build up your confidence and flex that intuitive muscle. You can find great deals on Amazon. I really love Doreen Virtue’s Angel Cards.
In regards to the intuitive voice vs your own voice – we all question this. This was a HUGE hangup for me when I first started out. I would always try to apply my logical mind thinking to my intuitive guidance. If I got the nudge to do something or say something, I would question whether or not this was my mind’s way of encouraging me, my intuition or plain out right imagination. When I asked my teacher about it, she answered, “Does it matter? So long as it is positive, does it really matter?” I took that to heart and realized that every time I stopped and tried to analyze the information coming through, I blocked the flow. The more I was in the flow of things, the easier it became to distinguish between my intuition and my guide’s assistance.
Bottom line, figure out what works best for YOU and HAVE FUN WITH IT!!!! Good luck in all that you do.
Are you willing to let go of the false beliefs you cling to so tightly? Are you ready to break free of the mold you’ve patterned yourself and your behaviors to exist within? Are you ready to CLAIM and LIVE your GREATNESS?
You have a calling. That calling is to be the authentic you, the one that resides within your heart. Your authenticity knows not of stress, prejudice or anguish. The authentic you is the God/Goddess within you that knows with all the certainty of the Universe that you are worthy of love and joy beyond imagination. To embrace these truths and this authenticity is to walk the path of ascension and understanding.
You read of others who have walked before you – the Buddha, the Christ, the Magdalene – what qualities did these human beings embody to achieve the level of light and power they personified? What about them was different, and can all human beings exist in this same vibration?
Those whom you refer to as Masters and Saints had the inner knowing of their light and worth. Not only did they acknowledge this and live within their light’s full frequency, but they also accepted it fully and completely.
This is the key. This is the magic wand that will open the doorway to prosperity and abundance.
When you exist within a vibration of lack and fear, it is not in accordance with the inherent beacon of unconditional love that radiates inside your very heart, and indeed within your soul DNA structure itself. When you downplay your strengths and capitalize upon your perceived weaknesses, you deny the very existence of Creator within you.
Why deny what is rightfully yours and the most incredible loving part of your being? If you are born with green eyes, yet wear brown contacts, are your eyes still not green? There is no running away from the truth. You can disguise it. You can stretch it to suit your fancy, but the truth always remain intact. You are a being created in the likeness of all that is light and all that is pure and holy. The energy and spark of Creator beats within your very heart.
To refuse the light that is you means you will encounter many opportunities to change your perception. Situations will present where you will be tested and presented with experiences that can allow you to embrace the truth and release the falsity that you cling to. These things happen not to punish you, but to act instead as lessons to teach and guide you.
And such is the duality of spirit living within physical form; the self-deception that you are separate from Creator, that God does not exist within you but instead in some far-away place that is unreachable or too difficult to access.
We are all one, Dear Ones. There is no separation. We are of one heart and created from the same vibration of unconditional love.
Accept this as truth. Know it within and you will never be without.
Being able to see and sense spirits, angels, ghosts, demons and energy is not always a simple thing in life to deal with. There of course is the judgment factor from outside sources, along with the doubt and fear that you really are crazy. When you’ve dealt with this issue for as long as I have, it is interesting that sometimes, I still freak myself out.
I’ve had several of those “ah-hah” moments with clients where I’ve tuned into a long lost loved one and given words of comfort; private messages that there was no way I could know about, or even guess. I still remember a session I had a while ago. It was with a woman and her uncle who had passed came into the room with us. He was a very strong, masculine energy with an amazing sense of humor, but with still a very “tell it like it is” kind of personality. The woman was asking several questions and everything was flowing quite easily. She then asked about a business venture she and her husband wanted to invest in. She gave no details, but wanted to know if this would be a profitable step for them to take. I heard the answer instantly and it was not coming from my guides. Her uncle sat in the corner of the room and said, “Tell her the online sex toy business will do very well for them.” My stomach dropped. I had never met this woman. I didn’t know where her opinions on this sort of thing were. My ego and fear began to take over, causing me to get out of the flow of information. I felt a loving presence place a hand on my shoulder and say, “It’s okay. Trust.” Taking a deep breath, I repeated the message from the uncle. The woman laughed hysterically and said that was exactly what their business plans were. I don’t think I have ever been so relieved in my entire professional career!
I’ve encountered more of those types of “wow” experiences within the last few days. I was recently clearing a home for a family and was on site for the process. As soon as I arrived at the front door I felt an incredible sadness, yet it did not feel associated to anyone living under this roof. I walked in and began to hear sobbing, screaming and feel pure desperation. The heaviness on my chest was immense as I began to empathically take in the emotions of a woman my guides called, “she who does not rest.” I immediately recognized that there was a soul here who had passed in the physical but had not crossed over. She was confused. She was overwhelmed. She was lost. I sat with the family as they explained some of the disturbances in the house – things breaking down for no reason and repeatedly, items being moved and lost, bite marks on belongings, physical scratches and thermostat changes. I told them of the deep grief and sadness I was feeling and asked to tour the house. I found the room where the woman most liked to occupy and sat in meditation to connect with her. She had lost her husband. She was looking for him. She did not understand where he was, where she was, or why these people were here in this place. The woman had been gone from the physical for almost 200 years, and for all of that time in between had been experiencing the torment and turmoil of the accident that had caused her death, along with the loss and grief for her husband. There was a lot of emotions stirred up – grief, rage, anger, fear, denial, hurt, despair – you get the picture. She was not happy in the slightest, and the energies of her feelings were causing disturbances for this family. I explained to her that it was time to cross and reconnect with her family and friends. She did not believe me and was very resistant. I asked for the assistance of Arch Angel Gabriel to bring down the tunnel of light and as it appeared, the hand of her loving husband extended out of it beckoning her to join him. With a huge smile on her face, she ran to him and was gathered up into his arms. Such an amazing sight to witness. I came out of trance, and as I turned to go down the stairs to report to the family, I was shown a vision of the couple’s death. They were riding in some sort of a house drawn buggy from the 1800’s. The rainstorm came out of nowhere and they became trapped in a flash flood. She was thrown from the rig and both she and her husband drowned. Oh…and did I mention the family had suffered three major cases of flooding in the home? Twice downstairs and once upstairs. No coincidences here. The continued trauma of this lost soul impacted the surroundings of where she allowed her emotion to release and express.
My next recent “freak out” was during an energy session with a woman who wanted to clear a past life relationship that was affecting her current life. A bit about past lives: when we die in a manner that is sudden and violent, many times we will hold that cellular memory within our current lifetime. The cellular memory can impact our health, our relationships and our actions. I think of it like loading a program on my computer a long time ago. Sure, it may be outdated and very old, but I can still access it when I want to. And it’s components can definitely influence the operation of the entire computer. (Sorry….worked too long as a computer tech not to have that come up!) Your cellular memory can always be accessed it’s just a matter of knowing what right path to take to get there. I could readily see this lifetime with my client and that it was brutally ended at someone else’s hand. She lay on my healing table and I knew that the best course of action was to regress her back to the moment of death, remove any impure energies exchanged in that moment and then re-script the outcome. The regression began, and we were in the midst of the interaction. My client began to flinch, move and spasm on the table and I could see in my mind’s eye a large sword being plunged deep into her chest.
Here is where the subject gets a little tricky to understand. Bear with me, I will do my best to walk you through it. Take a deep breath. Here we go. There really is no such thing as time. Time is a human creation that we use to justify and measure our experiences. Every single thing you’ve ever done as a soul is recorded in your brain and can be recalled, just like memory on a mainframe computer. When we access that memory, it can be very real, much like you can bring back those smells in grandma’s kitchen from a long time ago, or the happiness you felt on your wedding day. This is how the brain and the soul work. In a regression and re-scripting, the client and I both journey back to the point in time that requires healing and through shamanic technique, I become the observer to the situation; meaning I can see exactly what the client is seeing and feeling.
Back to the freak out….
I began to pull the sword out of my client. It was long and deeply embedded within her. I’ve pulled daggers, swords and various weapons out of many people before, and most come out quite easily. This was not the case this time. I pulled, I yanked and I used various energetic techniques. This was something that needed to come out before any re-scripting could take place. There was a stickiness to this sword for when I pulled on it there was a sucking sensation that drew it back in. Finally, together we released this terrible implement of hatred. There was immense pain and I quickly began to energetically close the wound, clear and heal it. Placing my hands on her chest and channeling in light, my guide whispered in my ear something about “the sword of darkness.” Well, heck yeah…that’s a good name for it! We completed the re-scripting and session. My client also remarked that there was something different about the sword she saw. I told her that what I saw was a sap like substance covering it and she agreed that this was what presented to her as well. She was pain free by the end of the session and said it felt like everything looked quite different now.
I happened to be in line waiting somewhere a short time later and got the nudge to look up poisonous sap used in medieval times. My guides know I have been a computer nerd, thanks to my Dad, my whole life so they incorporate this into giving me information. I was guided to a specific link that spoke of a plant commonly called Monkshood. Here’s a small portion of the article:
“In ancient Roman times, monkshood was recognized as a potent poison and was sometimes used by assassins, such as the killer of Emperor Claudius. Soldiers sometimes coated their arrows and sword blades with the sap from the plant before going into battle.”
It went on further to explain how this plant held the most toxic poison in Europe and was used extensively in medieval times. Talk about a freak out! I had no clue that people would put sap on their weapons to ensure the victim’s death. The poison within the sap would cause paralysis, vomiting and organ failure. No wonder my guide called it, “the sword of darkness.” During the session, I had seen the attacker preparing this sword with the sap in a dark room in a castle. All the puzzle pieces fit together. It made sense. Still freaked me out by the huge confirmation, but made sense nonetheless.
I can’t explain why these things come through to me other than I know that they just do. It’s like trying to figure out how a camera works…I have no clue, but I know I can use it and it will work when I need it to.
Where are our expectations? How much time do we use expecting something to happen? Someone to react in a certain way? A situation to turn around to our liking?
The very definition of expectation is: the act or state of looking forward or anticipating.
So is expectation then a positive or a negative force? That is for each individual to decide on their own. I, however, got a big dose of discernment on this subject within the last few days. What I realized about my expectations was that they were not serving my higher purpose. Allow me to explain.
My daughter, Alexis, turned 17 years old yesterday. We are in that stage of our mother/daughter relationship where she is fighting to assert her independence and I am struggling to maintain healthy boundaries for her. Welcome to the life of parenting a teenager! Yes, I was one of them….once, and a very long, long time ago.
We wanted to do something special for Alexis and enlisted one of her good friends to plan a surprise party for her. Lots of planning, sneaking and shopping went into getting all the details just right for the big surprise. We all waited in anticipation for Alexis to walk through the door of the clubhouse so we could rush out and welcome her into her special celebration. She was surprised, no doubt, and went around the room hugging each of her friends and thanking them for being there. I waited for my turn, so happy that we’d pulled off the big secret, which was my idea after all.
Alexis came over to where I was and I waited for the biggest mommy/daughter hug ever. Instead, what I got was, “Are you staying?”
I was crushed! I had put so much time and effort into all this. How selfish she was! Couldn’t she understand? I was hurt in the very place in my heart that had motivated me to create such an experience for her. I foolishly mumbled something to her about what a way to say thank you and drifted back into the sidelines inside the kitchen, which is where I planned to stay for the majority of the evening anyway.
I began to let these feelings stew inside me, not realizing they were triggering so much more than just a simple remark. All those doubts, non-acceptance, and unworthiness began to bubble up to the surface. So much emotion came forward. When I reached a quiet time, within the following days, I asked for assistance from my guides.
“What did you honestly expect? Did you expect a 17-year-old girl to put your feelings first? You know she appreciated it. For her to show you accolades in front of her friends is not her personality style. You know this. Why allow your feelings to be hurt over something that is not out of the norm?
What was your motivation in creating this evening for her? Was it with the intention that you would be awarded a prize? Did you want acknowledgement from her and her circle of friends as to what a wonderful mother you are? If this is the case, then it is indeed time you look closely at your actions, Dear One. I feel that you did this to make your daughter happy, plain and simple. It was to alleviate some of the sadness that has come up recently and the party was to make her feel special and surround her with friends. Was that not your motivation? And did you not succeed? Could you see she was having a wonderful time?”
Those words sunk in deep. Wow….why was I reacting so strongly to this?
“You react in this fashion, my dear, because you expect from others all those things you want to feel for yourself. When instead, you can really only place expectations on yourself and no one else. To anticipate how another person will react is in reality trying to control the outcome of a situation. Can you see this? And indeed, in many instances expectation can be a form of self sabotage. For if the person or situation does not meet your expectation, then you can justify all those false beliefs and fears that hide away in the recesses of your ego mind. This is why all those other feelings you’ve been experiencing have come to the surface.”
This all made so much sense to me. It was as if a light bulb suddenly clicked on.
“You cannot set an intention for someone else. You can only control yourself and your own circumstance. This is not to say that you should allow anyone to treat you with disrespect, for that is something entirely different – that is setting a boundary of what you will and will not accept. Your expectations should only be directed at yourself and how you intend to act, feel and react. Look at your motivations and base them solely on your own behaviors and intentions. Your intention in this instance was to make a wonderful evening for your darling daughter. And this came to fruition, did it not? If you base your actions in expectation of how someone else will react or treat you, then your intention is not coming from the highest and purest vibration. Many times, it is easy to fall into the trap and pattern of always wanting something in return. But to merely accept your actions and intentions as positive and release the reaction and expectation of others is to truly be in a place of peace and balance. You do not require anyone’s approval but your own.
See this only as the lesson that it is. Feel not failure or judgment about it. You’ve learned and you’ve grown. This is was all experiences bring to your life. It is all good.”
With those words I was left with an incredible feeling of lightness within my heart. It felt literally like a weight had been taken from my body. The heaviness of confusion and self-criticism left my being. I was in a state of peace.
I’ve learned to let go of the expectation of what and how I think other people in my life should react to my own actions. This is a freedom I have not felt before, except perhaps when I was a very small child. It is a place of adaptation and acceptance. It is a freedom to be in the flow of life moment to moment.
Great expectations I only place upon myself and in doing so I receive the greatest gift of all.
