The Lesson in Dis-ease

(Channeled Message)

 

Dis-ease is something that occurs when a soul is out of balance.  Keep in mind, when I use the term “soul” I speak of all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.  And to call forth an even greater ideal, if a soul is out of balance, then is indeed the Universe?  Or are we all finding our way through perceived chaos? Something to think about.

There can never be an illness or dis-ease present within a physical form without some type of energetic and emotional connection.  Some accidents and injuries result as a repeat of past occurrences in prior lifetimes, clearing of karma, or as lessons to now complete.  Many illnesses result as a vibrational pull due to low self-esteem, insecurities, and even fears.  The Universe will always respond in like kind, so be aware of what you’re thinking and projecting.

When caught in the midst of dis-ease, how do you find your way out?  Where do you start to gain your balance?

It is most important that you look at the totality of balance.  Balance occurs on all levels, for if one is out of kilter then it affects all.  Work from the outside layers inward to come to the highest resolution possible.  Most times, people will work at the physical level and the physical level only.  This is merely treating the end result and not getting to the core issue that caused it.

Spiritual – sit with the question, “How does this dis-ease affect my Spirit?” What answers come forward for you?

Are you angry at your god?  Do you feel unworthy of good health? Does this imbalance cause you disconnection from your Spirit?  What have you not expressed? What kind of false beliefs are you invested in? And most importantly, what kind of Spiritual work will make you feel better?

Mental – sit with the question, “What makes logical sense about this dis-ease?” How do you answer this?

How did I get it?  Where did it come from?  Who else had it that I know?  What patterns am I learning from it?  What is the solution?  What do I think about myself now that I have it?

Emotional – sit with the question, “How do I REALLY feel about all this?” What insecurities or fears come forward?

Allow all the emotions to play out.  Express them.  Feel them.  Embrace them no matter how much they hurt, how loud they are or how ugly they make you feel.  And when you’re done, pat yourself on the back.  You are strong.  You are still standing.  Good job.

Physical – sit with the question, “How has this impacted my physical body and my physical life?” What comes forward when you think of this?

Are some of your answers things you’ve been avoiding?  Are there issues in your life you did not want to face and the dis-ease and imbalance give you cause and affect not to face them?  Can you make a connection between the physical discomfort and the issues you found in the spiritual, mental and emotional areas of your life?  What physical activities bring you comfort and happiness?

There are many steps to finding balance in this life.  It begins by looking into the perceived areas of darkness and shining light upon them.  Your perception of lack is not something to shy away from.  It is something to focus on, to delve deeper into so that you may see the TRUTH and find the lesson within.

If you cannot see these things for yourself, reach out to friends and support systems to help you through these steps.  You will find your balance.  You will find your release and renewal.

All is possible.

From Danielle – I have to mention:   After this message came through and I read it, I immediately asked my guide how she could take such a simplistic view of such a horrendous subject as dis-ease.  To this she replied, “It is my higher perspective that allows me such simplicity.  When you become attached to the ideal that dis-ease is real and runs rampant in your life then you reinforce it’s power and strength.  See this as a simple solution and it can be a powerful change for you.”

Her words made sense.  They rang very true for me.

 

 

The Dark Side of Living in the Light

The Dark Side of Living in the Light

Catchy title, right?  Not wishing to be dramatic here.  Just telling it like it is.

For some people, living in “the light” means being of a higher vibration and seeing that vibration in all of existence.  That is beautiful, amazing and wonderful.  It is possible to find your Zen and look at life from the higher perspective and realize that no matter what happens in the lifetime, you are a soul with a continuous stream of existence.

For other people, they find their spirituality within the light by adapting belief systems and practices that allow them to feel closer to their higher power.  This too, is an incredible way of life.

And still others take on roles as light workers, healers, ministers and such to help people open up to their light, to empower them to embrace their spirit and their strength.  Many of these Spiritual teachers and leaders teach that we are of a vibration now where darkness no longer exists, while others will pound the reality of evil into the forefront of their teachings to elicit fear.

So where is reality in all this?

I believe we create our own reality through our perspective.  If you believe that we are living in a higher dimension right now where no dark energies can be present, then that is your reality.  If you believe you have to adhere to certain rules and rituals because the devil waits for you around each corner, then that is your truth.

I never really believed in curses or spells.  Sure, I liked to play witch when I was a little girl and was known to play with candles when I wasn’t supposed to.  I was drawn to ancient Egyptian texts at a young age and marveled at their rites and incantations used in ceremony.  I thought it magical.  I respected their devotion to their faith.  But that, honestly, was about it.

Then began my studies in Native American Shamanism.  I was part of ceremonial practices and could feel Spirit and energy all around me.  It wasn’t a spell.  I wasn’t directing negativity to anyone.  It was beautiful, engaging, entrancing and LIGHT!  The connection made my heart sing.

As I dug deeper into my spiritual learning, I still held a disregard for curses, believing that only those in a state of fear and adhering to a particular belief system could be affected by such things.  I gave this practice no power whatsoever.  Even when my teachers would explain about psychic warfare and how to combat it, I would go to my happy place in my mind.  Those things had nothing to do with me.  They were for other people, not as “light” as me of course, to deal with in their reality.

And then I got my first attachment.  It hit me hard.  I was depleted, mentally, physically, emotionally and definitely spiritually.  I thought I was losing my mind.  I couldn’t concentrate, didn’t want to move and definitely felt like leaving this life would be the best choice I could make.  Thankfully, I turned to a trusted teacher and Shaman for help.  I thought it was something purely physical or perhaps I pulled something in from a client.

As I spoke to my Elder, he connected with my energy.  I could see him going into trance and taking inventory of my field.  Within moments he told me each physical symptom I was having, the negative thoughts I’d been experiencing as well as visions of a man I’d been working with.  He went on further to explain to me that this man had placed a negative entity into my energy field to weaken me and cause me harm.

I was dumbfounded.  Why would anyone want to do that?  I was very Pollyannaish about being of the light.  I thought as long as I did my light work I got a free pass on negativity.

Ummmm….NO!  Even as I write that statement I cringe.  And I laugh.

My wonderful teacher explained to me the importance of boundaries – physical, emotional and energetic.  He also enforced and reiterated the tools I had been taught but not practicing myself in regards to clearing and dealing with negative energies directed to cause and inflict harm.

My mind and heart went into fear.  Was I so weak that I allowed this person to harm me?  What would happen next time?  Why didn’t my guides let me know?  How can I be intuitive and not know this?

I saw the eyes of my teacher begin to sparkle and a smile paint across his compassionate face.  “What did you learn?”  He asked.  “What gifts were you given?  And Honey, if you expect your guides to give you ALL the answers you are barking up the wrong tree.  If they gave you all the answers why would you be here?  You would stay on the other side.”

I sat with that.  Long and hard I sat with that.  I began to realize that life is a learning curve.  Each experience gifts us an opportunity to discover something new.

Doing this work for going on 20 years now, I’ve witnessed and experienced more than my share of light and dark.  I believe we can’t have one without the other – not on this Earth plane.  We come here to experience both and to learn from each.  And then we have a choice.  Which will we allow to be the driving force in our life, good or evil?

Yes, there are curses, spells, negative entities, demons, dark dimensional beings, psychic attacks and other creepy crawlies in existence.  But that doesn’t mean we have to bury our heads in the sand or hide under the covers.  Knowledge, as they say, is power.  There are tools to deter each of these scenarios and just because something is out there doesn’t mean you will experience it.

Every bad thing that happens in your life isn’t because of a curse or some sorcerer conjuring black magic.  Take responsibility for your life, meaning – your BODY, your MIND and your ENERGY. When all are in good working order with proper boundaries in place, no darkness can come through.

A Mother’s Love Never Ends

Young Mother Kissing Infant

An Unforgettable Mother’s Day Experience

Each year, when Mother’s Day comes around, I am reminded of this experience I had several years ago.  I wrote this article for a magazine and share it with you now in honor of all the Moms out there who care so deeply for their children.

 

A Mother’s Love Never Ends

My Mother’s Day experience a few years ago was one of those “ah-hah” moments that God so wonderfully puts in our path to teach us life lessons of love and wisdom.  Every year when Mother’s Day comes around, I am reminded of this event that so deeply impacted my life.

My husband was scheduled for an 11 hr shift at work putting him out of the house from 10am until 9pm.  This did not leave much time for us to celebrate Mother’s Day as a family, meaning more specifically him keeping our three kids in line while I was able to relax.  I was disappointed, but completely understood and was concentrating on the fact that my wonderful husband took an entire week off work the previous week so that I could attend a seminar.  I continued throughout the day to try to push that “being a girl” side of me away – you know the one – that overly sensitive, emotional side – well, that did not work!  Trying to push that away only attracted those feelings to me more (Oh – don’t we all LOVE the LAW OF ATTRACTION!).  It was like trying to keep the bar of Dove Chocolate away from the PMS victim – it was NOT going to happen.  So I spent a good deal of my day being angry, feeling sorry for myself and listening to the kids fight, which I am sure was more than triggered by me being depressed.  I was not in one of those “love and light” type of moods, if you get my meaning.

My husband called to see if we would meet him for an early dinner at an Italian place near his work. We went and the restaurant was closed!  Mother’s Day dinner was taco shop for me, but at least I did not have to cook!  On the way home from dinner, we passed by the site of a horrific car accident that happened a few miles away from our home a week earlier.  The area where the accident had happened had been turned into a memorial with candles, balloons, and flowers.  As I passed, I saw him again just as I had seen him in the few days previous to this one.  There stood a little boy, looking lost and confused, just staring at the memorial.  I knew he was lost.  It did not register to him the extent of what happened and his soul had gone into shock, not able to cross over with the others.  Being a medium, I see spirits and feel them, but do not always go out of my way to help them cross.  At times, this is their lesson to remain earth bound, so it just depends on the energy.  Some have unfinished business, others are stuck.  As this is a planet of free will, I do not take it upon myself to help any spirit I might see cross over.  This boy, however, tugged at my heart.  As I passed by, I promised myself I would come back that evening, after things had calmed down with my kids and see if I could help him.

I returned later that night to still find him there, standing near the balloons and flowers.  I pulled off the road and onto the dirt lot where the memorial was placed.  One single candle was still burning.  It was surreal.  I had found his name through some research, as well as the name of his mother who had passed in the car crash.  He stood there listlessly staring at the street where the drunk driver had hit his family’s car.  Flashes of the accident went through my mind – the moments before impact when the children were laughing, when the mother and her sister were discussing their plans.  I saw the force of the collision and the SUV spin out of control, flip and burst into flames.  I heard the screams of everyone inside the car.  I knew as I saw these visions, that this poor child was seeing the same scene, played over and over.

Tears came to my eyes as I called in my guides and the Arch Angels Michael, Gabriel and Jophiel to assist me.  I asked Gabriel to make a vortex of light so that the boy could see it and pass through onto the other side.  As I spoke to the boy, he was unsure of what was happening as he moved toward me and walked in my direction.  I explained that his mother was waiting for him in heaven and that all was fine.  He saw the light and stepped towards it but was still hesitant.  I began to speak the words “I love you” in his language as his Mother reached out her hand to accept him into this tunnel of pure and divine love.  They embraced and looked over at me one last time as if to say thank you and then the tunnel closed.  I knew he had crossed and that his soul was at peace.  It was a beautiful and loving experience for me.  So many lessons I learned that Mother’s Day.

I have learned that the most loving gift and lesson I can ever have is to help another.  I have learned that when I get so wrapped up in my own “stuff” the best way to get out of it if to assist someone else.  The most precious thing I think any of us here on this planet can do is to serve others through love and compassion.  That can be through a smile, a touch, loving energy, watering a plant, patting a pet on the head or simply speaking the words, “I Love You”.  Know that we ALL make a difference here. We all have the ability to express ourselves through love and light.

This has taught me to be so grateful for what I do have in my life, and not concentrate on what is “missing”.  Please, give your children an extra hug today and know how blessed we all are for having them in our lives.

On a side note, a year or so later, I was at a dear friend’s home, who happens to be a healer.  I had a session with her in which she took several photos during the healing.  As we sat at her table while she uploaded the images, my eyes fixated on a photo laying in front of me.  I recognized the person in the image immediately.  The person in the photo was the boy’s mother.  She was in the photo, hovering above a man laying down on the healing bed.  It looked as if she was comforting him.  When I asked my friend about the picture she explained that this man’s family had been killed in a drunk driver car accident.  He had come to see her before he left the country to hopefully release the guilt and grief he’d been feeling.  I know with all my heart that I was meant to see this picture.  It was one more confirmation and a feeling of gratitude ran through me.

God gives us no coincidences.  It is up to us to see things as they are and revel in the miracles that surround us.

Happy Mother’s Day to all.

Love & Laughter,

Danielle

Releasing the Demons of My Past

let go of the past

 

Releasing the Demons of My Past

 

Many people don’t understand what happens to a child when they are sexually abused.  I can only speak from my personal experience, but I know from working with others who have been through this type of horrid happening, that they are misjudged.  People who have not stood in the shoes of a victim should not even attempt to calculate what they “would” do, because until you are put in a certain situation, you really just don’t know.

Many children will bury their hurt and their pain.  They will stuff it and pretend that it doesn’t exist.  My abuse began when I was three years old and even as the first act happened, it was my saving grace to splinter off and go somewhere else.  I can recall witnessing each encounter with my attacker from a third person stance where I was floating above the situation, removed from it.  I believe this was my first experience with the Angels and that they were assisting in this out of body type viewpoint to save me.  I know with all my heart had I not stuffed and locked away the five years of abuse I would not be alive today.  Leaving my body helped me deal with the pain.  Hiding the memory helped me deal with life.

 

As we all know, things don’t remain hidden forever.  The “secret” manifested in my body as a physical ailment and my ovarian system was a complicated wreck!  I suffered from ovarian issues beginning at age 13 and on into my mid 30’s.  In my mid 30’s during the eruption of an ovarian cyst, the memories I had hidden for so long began to come to the surface.  It was as if the body could not longer contain the pain and the secret.  Much like a volcano builds up pressure, I erupted.  

 

It’s been a long road from that moment to now.  I find it interesting that once the memories came forward that the health issues stopped.  Physical problems that had plagued me the majority of my life simply vanished.  I wish the emotional healing were that simple.  I was thrust under the microscope of those close to me, “Why didn’t you say something earlier?  Why are you telling this now?  Why can’t you just get over it?  Are you making this up?”  

 

My saddened response was, “What purpose would I have in creating a falsity like this?”  It hurt my soul to know that by many I wasn’t believed, even though this attacker had raped another relative (no, she didn’t come forward either) as well as he had made passes and advances on other family members, all of which I found out about later.  

 

I found myself trapped between two worlds for a while – the childlike me and the adult me.  It was as if I had to relive and bring those memories back into my mind in order to heal them.  I went through various stages of PTSD as memories of the abuse would come to the surface and I could not control  it.  I would be shopping at the market and suddenly the panic attack would come over me.  I could smell him, I could feel him.  It was as if I was that little girl, sprawled out on the bathroom floor all over again.  Life and my emotions became a huge balancing act.

 

Fast forward to today.  I still can be triggered, and actually that’s been going on the last few months.  When I feel as if I am under attack, emotionally or otherwise, those last bits of memories I have not healed and released come forward.  It was during one such recent moment when it came into my awareness that though my abuser was dead, his soul had not crossed.  He was an earthbound spirit, suffering and wandering the earth plane in misery.  I will admit, this information gave me some satisfaction that karma reigns supreme.  What we do to others does come back to us in one form or another.  I was pleased he was hurting.   I celebrated that he was finally getting his just rewards for the pain he had caused.  The little girl in me wanted to do the happy dance, knowing that payback was in place.

 

Weeks passed.  The triggers subsided.  Yet still the thoughts of my abuser remained in the back of my mind.  I knew, from the work that I do, that I could help him cross over.  It was a no-brainer. I’ve dealt with earthbound spirits before and assisted in their crossing to the other side.  But did I want to do this?  Did I want to end his suffering?  Didn’t he deserve to be in misery?

 

And herein lies the duality of existence – living the human life as a soul.  For with all the tools and learning I have, my human mind and human heart are still very much intact.  As a soul, I had to address this with myself.  Could I act beyond my own hurt and pain?  Could I rise above it and help the very person who had impacted my life on such a large degree?

 

I sat in deep meditation this morning with my guides around me.  It was time.  It was time to let go.  It was time to move to a deeper state of light and holding on to this pain was no longer serving me.  I shifted into healer mode, and as I did so I could feel Arch Angel Jophiel and Arch Angel Michael beside me and gathered with them were the Arch Angels Raphael and Gabriel.  I could sense my uncle and his pain as Arch Angel Gabriel brought down the tunnel of light.  Raphael and Gabriel took him by his hands to guide him through, but he resisted.  He said that it was a trap.  He was not going to the pits of hell.  He knew what was waiting for him.  

 

I walked towards him and placed my hand on his heart.  I focused on sending as much light as possible into his spirit.  As I did so, I began to clear his energy, calling to release any vibration or lower forms that were holding him here and preventing his crossing.  As the clearing progressed, I saw an entity leave his energy field.  I recognized the eyes of this entity, for I had seen it each time my uncle molested me.  With a flash, the energies were drawn into the light and suddenly my uncle was cleared.  He was lighter and brighter and his entire structure and mannerisms changed.  He stumbled forward, to the tunnel of light, turning to look back at me.  

 

“I’m sorry,” he said.  “Please forgive me.”  And in that very moment, I did.  I let it go. I forgave him.  I released the past pains as I watched him enter a space of higher vibration and unconditional love he hadn’t experienced in quite some time.  

 

And here I am, experiencing a higher vibration and unconditional love as well, just on another level.  I am here in the duality of life, realizing that being human is a juggling act.  Sometimes it’s best to act and react as the stumbling human that I am, and other times it takes embracing my soul to truly understand what this life is really all about – LOVE.

 

 

 

Questions & Answers…

q&A

Questions & Answers

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.

Losing a Friend…Losing Her Gifts?

“Hello Danielle,
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.
Thank you”

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

Grounding…

“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! 

Thanks for writing in

Paranormal Sight….Seeing Angels….Am I an Empath?

” 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  )

Have a beautiful day.

Dimensional Bleed-Through and Blocked Intuition

“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.

Hope this helps!

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. 

Good luck and enjoy your time together!

Discovering & Strengthening Intuitive Gifts

“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.

Don’t Worry…..Be Happy !

Don’t Worry…..Be Happy !!

How much of our time and our lives is spent worrying?  If you had to guess, what would your estimate be?  25% ?  50% ?  90% ?  I would imagine that each person has their own worry scale, but what amount, if any, would you say is healthy?  Or is worrying a healthy habit to have?

The very act of worrying itself is not just time and energy spent.  It has an emotional and physical impact on your body.  Worry to the extreme can put us into the “fight or flight” response – racing our heart rate, making our breathing shallow, constricting our muscles and pushing blood flow to our vital organs.  On an emotional level it can take you into a depression and attract lower vibrations and feelings.

Quoting Wikepedia: Worry is thoughts, images and emotions of a negative nature in which mental attempts are made[vague] to avoid anticipated potential threats.  

Let’s note the words, “negative nature” and “anticipated potential threats.” In the definition above, that would mean that to worry is to expect a negative outcome.

The words, “thoughts, images and emotions” construct everything that our imaginations are based on; our vision, our feelings and the way that we think.

What if, instead of focusing on the negative outcome we fear will come to pass, we instead concentrate on a positive conclusion?  It takes just as much energy to think a negative thought as it does a positive one, but the impact on our lives is vastly different.

When our brains focus on positive energy, our thoughts travel out through the Universe and so begins the law of attraction – like attracts like.  Our brains also start to create “happy chemicals” in our bodies that make us feel euphoric and light.  This allows the lymph system to relax, our muscles to soften and our breathing to become deeper.  The conscious mind, while still intact and activated, merges on a deeper level with the areas of the brain that are fully aware that anything is possible (the sub-conscious and super-conscious parts of the mind).

I am reminded of an incident last week.  I awoke and was in bed, thinking about my day and what I had planned for later in the week.  My thoughts when to a person that I have a rocky relationship with.  I began thinking of the possibility of seeing her later in the week, which in turn led me to remember all the upheavals we’ve had through the course of our connection.  I rekindled all those feelings of betrayal, hurt and fear.  I was all caught up in the worry of how I would act and what I would do IF I saw her later in the week, when I heard a loud noise in my room.  It startled me and broke the pattern of my thoughts.  I heard the voice of one of my guides.  “Enough already!”

As I began to tune in to the energy of my guide, I sat up in bed.  I noticed that my head was hurting, my stomach was in knots and I just felt like crap.  Definitely not the way I wanted to start my morning!  I knew that this what not how I felt when I first woke up.

“Can’t you see how you’re affecting your body with your thoughts?  Your body was never designed to be under constant stress.  Can you feel what you’ve created?  How you’ve blocked the flow of your system’s natural rhythms?  What a state to put yourself in!  You are setting yourself up for a very low morning, Dear One.”

Wow.  I don’t know what felt worse…the headache or being disciplined by an Angel.  I think the latter.  And what she said hit me so hard.  The ailments I felt in my body were not caused by a virus or depletion.  They were caused by me.  I created them.  I quickly tuned in to see what would help in alleviating the physical symptoms.  After saying a prayer of gratitude for my body, drinking some water and doing some yoga I felt 100% better.

I should also add that the woman I was so worried about seeing later in the week never showed up at that meeting.  All that worry and stress over something that never even happened.  Isn’t that the way most of our worries pan out?  We worry over something that never even comes to pass.

I am still grateful, nonetheless, for I’ve learned a valuable lesson.  Don’t worry….be happy!  That’s my new mantra.

Being an Intuitive Mom is Not So Easy…..

not so easy

Being an Intuitive Mom is Not So Easy….

This past week has been an upheaval of emotions, lessons and stress for me and my son, Adam.  He came home from school sick on Wednesday afternoon with food poisoning symptoms and did not recover as quickly as we’d anticipated.  So a trip to the doctor was in order.  Friday morning he woke up in severe pain with most of it radiating on the right side of his abdomen where his appendix is located.  All his other symptoms were in line to point to this diagnosis as well, and I wanted some answers.  Off to Urgent Care we went.

I’d been giving Adam healing treatments, Reiki, and checking in with my guides along the way.  But when that “Mom” gene takes over, it is very difficult to get a clear read, especially when your own child is in pain.  All you want it to do is stop.  All you want is to see that little face smile and hear a familiar giggle or two.

We arrived at Urgent Care right when they opened but we still had many people in front of us.  A short time later we were escorted back to the triage room where Adam’s vitals were taken.  I was shocked to learn he’d lost 3.5 pounds in a just a few short days.  Off to the exam room we went.

The doctor was thorough and kind.  He examined Adam’s belly and my poor baby winced every time he was pushed and prodded.  Tests were ordered, including a blood work up to see where his stats were.  We completed a few of the other tests and soon a nurse came into the room to administer the blood test as well as start an IV, as Adam was quite dehydrated.

Once Adam knew that his blood was going to be taken, he began to panic.  Typical kid, right?  Heck…who am I kidding?  Typical pretty much anybody!  The nurse had difficulty starting a line in because Adam was dehydrated and so after poking him twice, she stopped.  She said we would just go do the x-rays and that she’d give him some time to calm down.  Thinking we had a short break, Adam began to calm down and he started to relax.  I began to work with his energy to release any false beliefs held in fear, an exercise Adam is comfortable with and knows very well.

Then a male nurse came into his room.  He was accompanied by the first female nurse who had tried to take Adam’s blood and start the IV the first time.  He said they were going to try again, because the test was very important.  There was a distinct possibility of Adam having to go to the Children’s ER and we would know more based on a blood test.

Adam’s reaction to this male nurse was not typical.  Even before he announced that he was going to take blood, Adam was cringing at the sight of him.  My son is very sociable and friendly, so I was taken back from his reaction but could not concentrate on it or read into it as I knew what else was going to happen – the blood draw.  Adam began to tense up and squirm as the two nurses held his arm and felt for a vein.  The first time they tried, Adam moved his elbow and the vein shifted so they were unsuccessful.  He cried and I tried my best to distract him and have him concentrate on me.

The medical team then moved to the back of Adam’s hand to try again.  He looked at the male nurse and said, “You’re not putting that needle in me.  Not this time.” The male nurse ignored him, and began telling me how unwilling Adam was to cooperate.  I still tried to calm my baby.  I watched as the nurse got the needle under the skin, missed the vein and began to move the needle around under the skin trying to nick a portion of it to start the blood flow.  With each movement of that needle, Adam became more enraged.  It seemed like it went on for minutes, but I’m sure it was finished sooner than that.  The male nurse removed the needle and declared that Adam had flattened his veins because he was so much in fear.  The nurse said that Adam’s “fight or flight” reflex had kicked in, and all the blood from his arms and legs was drawing into the core of his body for protection.

We were soon sent to get x-rays, and as I stood outside the room, I began to see a hologram began to take shape in front of me.  Suddenly I saw a scene play out.  This happens quite frequently when I tap into someone’s past life history.  I don’t know why it presents this way, or why I seem to be able to see this, it just IS this way.

The scene showed a young G.I. in military garb with a helmet on being taken into a room forcibly.  He was fighting the entire time as two men strapped him down on a table, taking his helmet off after he was secured.  As I stared at his face, I saw an energy that was so familiar.  Suddenly the G.I. was staring at a larger man hovering above him who was holding something in his hands.  I looked at this man and felt the energy of the male nurse, who had tried to take Adam’s blood earlier.  I heard the young G.I.  scream, “You’re not putting that needle in me this time.  I won’t let you do it.”  I suddenly knew why that soldier’s energy seemed so familiar.  This was my son in an earlier lifetime.  He’d been tortured by this crazy doctor from the opposing side of a war.

As I began to fathom all this information that came forward, Adam finished his x-ray and we went back to the exam room.  It all made sense.  The puzzle pieces began to fit together.  Adam has had his blood taken many times, even more dehydrated than what he was, and though he was not fond of the process, he did not react this strongly or as aggressively as he did this time.  The underlying trigger of this past life remembrance obviously influenced his actions.

I felt like a failure.  How could I have this “gift” and not have seen this playing out the way it did?  Why was I unable to protect my precious son from such trauma?  As my guides began to rally around us, I wanted no part of what they had to say.  I closed myself off to their guidance and explanations.  All I wanted was relief for my son.  I spoke to the doctor about what to watch for and promised I would keep Adam hydrated at home.  I did not want them to try again to start a line of fluid for him.  We went home from there and began to push fluids, which surprisingly now he was able to keep down without any problems.

“Why does God want me to be sick, Mommy?” Adam asked as he was laying on the couch.  “Why would he let me feel pain?”  I told him that I wasn’t sure how God’s mind worked, but that I was sure he did not like Adam to be sick.  Maybe God was trying to teach him to make sure he kept drinking fluids, or maybe his body needed to be reminded of something.  Adam then began to cry, “So I caused all this?” he asked.  My heart began to break.  I assured him that it wasn’t his fault and that it was mine for not making sure he was doing what his body needed.

I struggled to find the higher purpose in all this.  I wanted an answer and I wanted a LOGICAL answer not a foo-foo shee-shee beat around the bush ascension answer.  I wanted the plain and simple truth.  When I got to a place of quiet, I asked for my guides to have a pow wow.  It seems as if the Angels were conversing among themselves as to how to answer my question.  Michael stepped forward and said:

“For you to understand the purpose of this would mean that you would have to be detached from your son.  Therefor you cannot have complete understanding.  But you can move to a place of acceptance; acceptance that you do not have all the answers, for you do not contract for the lessons of another soul.  May I remind you, Dear One, that now with the awareness of this other lifetime, you can assist Adam in healing on all levels just as you have so many others.  Do you know the weight this will lift from him in his years to come?  It is not merely the karma he has with that man, but it is the fear and sickness you can also help in clearing.  YOU have that control; the ability to be the way-shower, the tender heart of compassion and kindness through your gifts and energy of the soul that you are.  You do not have control to impead upon another’s lessons or their path for that is in direct contrast to the concept of free will.  This is not your cross to bear.  Do not take ownership of another’s lessons.  Instead of focusing on the lack and where you feel you have failed, instead see the good that can come of this situation.  You block not only your own light when you choose these negative vibrations, but you also block the light that you could be giving to others. “

His words sunk in on a deep level.  I took a deep breath and allowed them to wash over me.  I realized that I had not willingly subjected my son to this experience, but that for whatever reason I needed to accept it and move forward.  I began working with Adam’s higher self to clear the past life triggers.  It was as simple as setting an intention and it was complete.  Adam began feeling better quickly.  He bounced back with no further mention of what had happened.

I realized I could learn a lot from my son.  He is transparent.  He allows his feelings to come to the surface, not afraid to hide them.  When he expresses them, they flow through him and he moves on.  There is no harboring of negative emotion.  There is just light.  Plain and simple.

I am blessed with the most amazing teacher in my life.  Thank you, Adam.  Being a mom who can see into other realms and pick up on energies isn’t easy, but you sure make it all worth it.

C’Mon – Get OVER it Already…Really?

JustGetOverIt

C’Mon – Get OVER it Already…

How many times have you heard that phrase – “Get over it!”  I’m guessing, quite a lot.  From the time of childhood scrapes and falls to later on break-ups and upsets, the seasoned advice from our elders and peers can take the form of mandated , obligatory swallowing of emotion and unexpressed feelings.

Why?  Because it’s the right thing to do?  Because you are stronger if you don’t show how you feel?  Does it make you look better if you don’t express that let-down, the anger, the pain or the sorrow that brims up within you?

NO.

That’s not the reason for the, “Get over it” many people advise.  They say these words and offer this response because they are uncomfortable with expression, especially of subjects like pain, shame or loss.

Who determines when we are clear?  When we have resolved old energies that have sat within us?  Who sets the bar of the level of acceptable healing and expression?

WE DO.

If you allow anyone else to decide your comfort and expression for you, then you are truly holding back on yourself and willingly giving away your power.

Many of the issues in the world today are caused because of lack of communication, expression and the rush to just “get over” things.  And when families adopt this as their pattern, generations are imprinted with the philosophy that pushing the pain down is the best way to deal with life.  Want to know why things like cancer, heart disease and stroke are hereditary?  Take a look at how these families deal with life and their emotions.   It goes way beyond a simple predisposition of dis-ease.

Now it’s very easy to get caught up in the play by play – retelling the same story over and over, explaining your feelings and emotions.  Sometimes an addiction can form by identifying so much with the drama of the story itself, as well as the reactions given when the story is shared.  That is something quite different from suppressing trauma.

I am reminded of an incident that happened when I was six years old and in first grade.  A little boy, named Sean, came up behind me while we were in line getting ready to go back to class from recess.  He lifted up my skirt, pulled down my underwear and kissed my butt cheek.  I was mortified.  I began crying uncontrollably and ran to tell the teacher.  I explained what happened, and Sean was punished.  I was sent to the restroom to wash my face, but still the tears kept coming.  I could not stop crying.  I returned to class and much to my teacher’s dismay, it was quite apparent that I had not calmed down.  I remember her grabbing me by my shoulders, looking down at me and grimacing, “It’s done.  It’s over.  Get over it. Suck it up and move on.”  She shook me by my shoulders and I was scared to the point that I knew I needed to stop crying.

Get over it.

To anyone else, this may have been an overreaction of a six-year-old girl who was embarrassed to have her underwear pulled down.  But to someone who’d been sexually abused, like I’d been, it was something entirely different.  I had never been able to tell anyone about my uncle that molested me.  I was told to keep it a secret, and I did – for decades.  Who knows if the truth would’ve come out that day if I could have let the rest of that pain and shame out.  It’s a possibility.  Maybe the abuse would’ve stopped.  Maybe my entire life would’ve been different.  Who knows.  I don’t put that responsibility on my teacher, but I use this as an example that we never really know all that goes in another’s life other than what we see on the surface.  To hold them to a personal standard or  curtail their expression because it’s more convenient is a travesty.

 Want to know what happens to those emotions and pain that we readily stuff down?  They manifest in the physical.  That energy has to go somewhere.  Many times it will appear through personality traits and redirection, but that only allows so much release.  Until an emotion is dealt with and healed, it lays buried in the physical body expressing itself in a much different way.  Sometimes the pain is so deep seeded, that the only way for the brain to deal with it is to hide the memory.  This can result in PTSD, personality dissociation, and many other psychological issues.  Because once again, that energy has to go somewhere.

I was diagnosed with ovarian issues at the age of twelve and had to have my first female exam at that time.  I’d had a lady family doctor, so going to see an OB/GYN freaked me out enough, but knowing that I would have a male doctor was much worse.  This man was an old school MD.  His office was dark, with paneled walls and a musty smell.  His desk sat on one side of the room and the exam table was on the other side of the room.  We sat and discussed my symptoms, and soon I was directed to get into a gown, lay on the table and place my feet in the stirrups.

The first thing I noticed when the doctor came back into the room was the heat coming from the lamp at the end of the table as he moved it closer to me.  The second thing I noticed was that he didn’t put exam gloves on.

He began his examination, which was quite painful, and I began to cry.  I was embarrassed.  I wanted to die.  I wanted him to stop.  He said he’d found a “blockage” and proceeded to get a set of surgical scissors and without any numbing agents cut me.  I screamed as he did this and began to move from the table, trying to escape.  He held my legs down and scolded me, telling me not to be a baby, that it didn’t hurt that bad.  And as he grabbed tissues and began mopping up the blood, he said, “Get over it.  You have nothing to cry about now.”

Get over it.

Well, things didn’t work out that way.

Those memories and experiences took their toll on me, both physically and emotionally.  They shaped my life and by not releasing them, I faced several hurdles I had to cross.  In my late thirties, this all came to a head, when one night I was pushed down on my bed by a trusted member of the family.  He had followed me into my room, told me he loved me and wanted me for himself.  For the first time in my life I stood my ground and said No.  I pushed back at him and demanded that he leave.  And that is when the childhood memories started to slowly come up to the surface.  That one intense experience, where I was able to align with my power, opened a door that had been closed for sometime.

Within a few weeks, after severe bouts of pain, I had an ovarian cyst burst.  As I moved through feeling the physical trauma, the emotions that I had hidden away for such a long time came flooding back into my conscious memory.  I relived the experiences of abuse starting from the age of three and going on until I was eight years old.  I didn’t have the perception then, that I do now, to know that this was a process of release.  The emotions had stored in my sexual organs (the ovaries) and when the cyst burst, by feeling the physical pain, the emotion came forward as well.  That energy was released, so the memories were released right along with it.

I can tell you with all honesty that this event turned my life upside down.  When I looked for support and assistance in working through this, I turned to a friend who happened to be in the alternative health field as well.  She told me about imbalances she was picking up in my energy field, and I told her what I was feeling in regards to the sexual abuse, which I believed was causing the issue.  Her reply back to me was, “Get over it.  In fact get the f*** over it.  It’s in the past.  You will never be able to do the work you need to do here until you get over it.”

Get over it. Get the f*** over it.

While all of these people who gave this advice may have meant well, their words burned into my mind and even deeper into my soul.  I believed myself to be weak and inept at breaking free of the heaviness of guilt, shame and pain.  But one thing was very clear to me – I could not just “get over it.”  There was no magic wand, no prayer, no ritual or therapy that would instantly sweep all those lower emotions from my mind.  I had to feel them.  I had to express them.  I had to purge them from my very existence until I could feel them no longer.

I couldn’t get over it.  I had to move through it.

There are still times when I will be triggered.  A photo will come up that reminds me of a memory of that time, or someone will mention something else that takes me back.  I will be saddened, but now instead of pushing those emotions away, I allow myself to feel them.  By doing so, I am healthier, happier and much cleared than I’ve been before.

Don’t hold back on yourself by allowing someone to dictate your level of expression.  Move through the emotions at your own speed. No other soul walks the path of your journey.  There is never a time limit for healing.

Parenting the Intuitive Child

Parenting the Intuitive Child

Last night I gave a lecture on Parenting the Intuitive Child at Spirit Within U here in Las Vegas.  Many parents and children were in attendance, and there were many who could not be there that wanted a recap of the evening.  Within this post you will find my lecture notes and later on today I hope to get the audio of the evening’s event posted online.  When I do, I will post the link here.

I can’t begin to explain the energy in the room or the magic that was created last night.  The excitement of parents and children coming together to learn was amazing.  Little ones from age three on up to young adults aged 18 and 19 were in the room all gathered for one purpose: to gain further understanding.

A five year old boy asked a question about a little girl he kept seeing in his house.  He wanted to know if she needed help and why.  He told me her name was, “Shiny” and that she’d been burnt in a fire.  The boy felt she needed help, but wasn’t sure what to do.  It literally brought tears to my eyes as I tapped into the energy he was experiencing as well as the plight of the little girl.  I explained to the boy that the little girl was frightened and confused.  When the fire happened in her house, she was afraid of the flames and the light and heat they gave off.  She became trapped and died there.  As the tunnel of light came down for her to cross over, she mistakenly thought that it was more light and flames from the fire and ran away, not knowing that this was a way home to the other side.  I walked the young boy through calling in Arch Angel Gabriel to help the little girl cross.  What a brave boy to ask such a question in a room of about 40 other strangers.  Such a bright light!

A ten year old girl wanted to know how to discern between “good” spirits and “bad” spirits.  I asked her how the apparition made her feel, letting her know that if she ever feels threatened or scared, she has the power to command any spirit to leave.  This beautiful young lady stayed for at least an hour after the lecture connecting with other children.  She came running up to me thrilled that she had met another telepath and told me she’d given him a past life reading and how they recognized each other.  At ten years old!!!!  WOW!

Many questions were asked from the audience, but even more questions came after the lecture.  One young woman had a dark attachment, another young man could not shut off the voices of spirits, a family had a dark energy in there home that waking there three boys, and a grandmother was awakened at night by the spirits of her deceased husband and friend.  They all wanted clarity and understanding.  They wanted answers.  They wanted solutions.

This is real, people.  This is how we begin.  You want the world to change?  These children are the a huge part of that shift towards making this planet a better place.  Let us empower them.  They have much to teach us.

My lecture notes follow.

Angel Blessings,

What constitutes an Intuitive Child?

 There are many categories and definitions of “special children” in our society.  First came the Indigos, followed by the Crystals, then the Rainbows and now the Human Angels.  I could spend eons of time delving into the characteristics of each presumed label, but I prefer not to label children.  Instead, I prefer to recognize their strengths and empower them to utilize their gifts rather than confine them to a definition that society may place upon them.

 Intuition is derived by many different ways.  If your child seems to feel things on a deep level, they may also feel the emotions and energy of others, they are most likely an empath.  To see things outwardly, like energy and spirit forms as well as images from another’s memory, is to be clairvoyant.  If you hear things, spirit messages and energetic information, this is called clairaudience.  To feel and receive information about others through your primary senses is to be clairsentient.  To have clear knowing, where you just know something, like the thoughts pops into your head, is to be claircognizant.

 Is everyone intuitive?

Yes, we all have these abilities.  Children have very strong gifts because they come into this world wide open – their senses are heightened and they have no experience of people teaching them anything otherwise.

With the changes in energy most recently in December of 2012 all of these abilities have been heightened.

What makes me an expert on this subject?

I began seeing spirits at the foot of my bed when I was three years old.  No one believed me.  They told me it was my imagination.  I was scolded and punished for “lying” about things and making them up.

By the time I was five, I was telling people I was sure I would die of fright by having a heart attack.  I was afraid of the dark, would wet my bed at night because the ghosts were making contact – some of them being not so nice and downright tormented me.

My siblings would tease me, even hide under my bed and pull at my ankles when I would get up in the morning.  I developed anxiety which later on turned into an eating disorder.

People didn’t understand me.  I still had friends, but when I would tell them something they’d said that I shouldn’t know about, it freaked them out.  I was the one that was always chosen to lead a séance or play light as a feather at slumber parties because everyone knew I could get them to the point of being scared out of their minds.

I desperately wanted to just shut off my abilities.  They frightened me.  My family didn’t believe me.  The few people I met in school that did seem to understand were not positive.  They taught me of the dark side of psychic ability – of manipulation, spell casting with intent to control, and of connecting to dark energies.

This actually manifested into physical dis-ease and I began passing out at school, repeatedly.  As I look back now, I find it as my saving grace, a gift from the angels.  By being removed from the situation, I was able to create distance and break contact with the individuals who I allowed to influence me.

Had I had a mentor in my life then, I know things would have been different.  I know I wouldn’t have begun drinking at a young age to numb out.  I know I wouldn’t have taken on an eating disorder to try my best to have some sense of control in my life.  I always felt that everything from the outside was controlling me, including my abilities.

I’ve worked many years assisting children.  I have three kids of my own; have been the room-mom, Girl Scout Leader, soccer mom, PTA board member, etc. etc. etc.  I’ve seen kids that are so wide open to the rest of the world they experience sensory overload and act out because of it.

My intention in teaching children and parents is to empower them.  It is to teach them tools and skills to strengthen their abilities and to live in balance with them.

My intention here tonight is also to create a sense of community.  I want kids to know they are not alone, that there are many others out there just like them.  I want parents to know that they also can form a support system.  It takes a village, doesn’t it?  Let us form that support system here and now.

Through amazing teachers in my life, I’ve been able to fully invest in my gifts without fear, and use them to be of service.  I want to pay that forward.  There is no reason a child has to suffer like I did.

The path of a sensitive child

It’s tough enough when you’re growing up with all the pressures that are present: fitting in, building a positive self-esteem, learning new things.  When you’re sensitive on top of all of it, it compounds the process.  Imagine being in a room full of other hormonal teens, and feeling all their stuff on top of your own.  Not so easy and extremely overwhelming.

 I have found that sensitive kids walk a fine line.  Some seek out being perfect in everything they do, while others act out because they do not understand what they’re feeling and sensing.  It’s not something they can just turn off.

 Allow me to demonstrate that for you.  Close your eyes.  I’m going to ask you to stop hearing the words I speak.  Are you ready?  1-2-3…can you still hear me?  Right, you can.  Intuition is just like any of your other five senses.  It is a part of you.  You can cover your ears, even put earphones on to block out my voice.  But that’s only going to last for a little while.

 Sensitive children who are not shown ways to focus their energies and gifts sometimes seek out alternative ways to “block out the noise.”  I’ve witnessed many a gifted child resort to cutting, drug use or complete withdrawal as a result of wanting to escape from things they do not understand.  This leads to many problems and deep pain for the child and the entire family.

 I convey this to you, not to strike fear into your heart, but just to pass along my knowledge.  It is time these children learn that who they are and what they can do is NORMAL.  It is not something to hide or to be ashamed about.  If someone makes fun of them or shuns them in any way, it is simply because they are coming from a place of inadequate information.  Perhaps one day, long ago, someone they loved and trusted told them they were bad for using their gifts, and that is all they know.

Reactions in the Event of Death

 

This subject is a very “touchy” one and one that I do not take for granted or lightly by any means.

Is there a “right” and a “wrong” way to react in the event of death?   I’ll let you be the judge of such things.  Each of us has our own coping mechanisms, our own way of dealing with the feelings that come up when there is a death that affects us.  The overwhelming waves of sadness, shock, grief, anger and rage can all be a part of reaction.

I write about this subject in the wake of the tragic school shootings in CT a few days ago.  My sincere condolences to all the families affected by this senseless tirade go out.  I can’t even begin to imagine the pain they must all be going through as well as those who witnessed this tragedy and all their friends and families connected to the event.

Within hours of the report of this violence, the debates began: gun control, mental health issues, political agendas, school safety, training our children for combat, etc. etc. etc.  Sensationalism reigned over our news feeds and misinformation was delivered about many key details.  More focus seemed to be on the person that caused this horrid act than was placed on the victims.  With all of our technology available, from video live feed to internet, have we lost our sensitivity?  Do we need to be privy to all details of how this event transpired, or can we trust our police officials to make the right decisions?  Can we instead focus on the innocent children and adults who are no longer with us?

With the deathing work that I do, I have had the privilege of being at the side of many who have passed.  I have also lost many who are very dear to me, most recently my father.  When my father passed, all I wanted was to be comforted.  I wanted to be held.  I wanted to numb and not feel anymore.  I wanted to remember every second I ever spent in the company of this remarkable man.  I didn’t want to hear about the things he could’ve done differently regarding his health.  I didn’t want to hear about cancer reforms or what political party was getting kickbacks from big pharma.  All I wanted, really, was to remember his love.  Had I experienced the negative reaction, I don’t know how I’d have been able to cope.

With the families of the loved ones I’ve assisted in transition, they also just wanted to honor and remember the person who’d passed.  Many times with the uncomfortable emotions that death can stir, people can react in a variety of ways; some helpful, and some not quite so helpful.  It is easy to push the sadness and grief away from the forefront and focus on other points to relieve the stress and anxiety.

Death is never easy, no matter which way it comes to pass.  Whether it is a known inevitability or a sudden act, it is never easy for the ones left in it’s stead.  Grieving is a vital part of the healing process.  May we assist those within this process by sending them prayer, good energy and compassion.

I received and email from a student of mine that was quite broken up by the school shootings.  She asked me how could God allow such terrible things to happen and what was the Angel’s perspective.  I replied to her that I am far beyond the grasp of God’s divine understanding, but that I would bring forth what information came to me from the Angels.  This is what came through:

“Were you to know the the reasons as to why this tragedy happened, would it make the pain suffered any less? Would the grief sustained be shortened in any way?

This is the time Dear Ones, to step out of your continual logical mind thinking  and step fully and completely into your hearts. Embrace one another. Show love. Shine your light. 

To heal these deep wounds requires bonding together, leaning on one another and holding each other tightly. It is not the time for arguing and negativity. It is the time for remembrance of what has been lost and comforting those in need. 

Do not contemplate on things beyond your control or point blame. Center your energy instead on what is within your free will – Love; pure, simple, unconditional love. 

Love shared with another is the greatest gift on Earth. Send your love freely to those who lost their lives and to their loved ones.”

I believe these statements hold true to all instances of death, and I am grateful for this enlightenment.

May we share the greatest gift of Love with each other in all times.

Angel Blessings to you all,
