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.”
On the way home from running errands, I heard a voice say, “You need to stop at the cemetery.” I tried to brush it aside, because I have a bizillion things to do on my to do list today, but as I got closer to the cemetery, I began hearing a little girl’s name and seeing flowers next to a grave and knew I had to stop.
I pulled up to the side of the children’s part of the cemetery and asked to be shown where I needed to go. I soon found a recent grave with a flower arrangement, teddy bear and angel statue upon it. This was under a shade tree and as I tuned into the energy around me I saw her, a little girl, looking about 18 months old, hiding behind the tree, looking lost.
All I wanted to do was gather her up in my arms and take all her fears away. I began to communicate with her, and she was very timid, very shy and very scared. I asked for one of my power animals to connect with her and as he came over and rubbed his head against her, she began to smile.
This little soul was earthbound, so much in shock from a sudden death and pulled to the Earth plane by her grieving parents, that she didn’t cross over. It wasn’t that she wasn’t worthy or anything like that, she had just resisted when it was time to cross and was therefor stuck between two worlds.
I connected with Arch Angel Gabriel and asked for the tunnel of light to open for her, and Arch Angel Jophiel came forward and started coaxing the girl towards the light. Jophiel and my animal spirit walking with the little girl towards the light when suddenly an older woman came through and reached out her hand to the little girl.
I believe this female spirit to be her grandmother, and one the little girl had not known in the physical, but completely recognized. She ran to the woman with delight and crossed over easily and with joy.
As I stood in the middle of the cemetery, suddenly my to do list didn’t seem so big, in fact in didn’t really matter at all. All that mattered was that moment, that moment of love, of peace and of joy.
We are all just here, walking each other home in one way or another. Take the time to listen to that inner guidance, even when it’s the last thing on your list to do. You never know what gift may be waiting for you right around the corner.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Ever since I was a little girl and began to tap into my intuitive abilities, I wanted assurance that was I was feeling and sensing was “real”. There has always been a need inside to provide some sort of evidence as to what I was feeling within my body and sensing inside my heart and mind. As I got older, that same desire of proof was there, but had faded as I began to expand my intuition and trust in the insight that came through.
When information comes to me it hits me like a wave. If you think of what its like to stand on a beach with the ocean water covering your ankles as you watch the tide come towards you, that’s similar to the energetics I receive when I pick up messages and insight. I get a feeling of a vibration coming towards my field and then it hits me like a wave washing over me. As more understanding comes through, the waves become higher and more intense. I never know how long the process will take or when the direction of the awareness will change. It literally for me is all about going with the flow. I guess you could call it soul surfing.
My need for confirmation has changed, yet there are times when messages from Spirit come through that I will later turn to my guides and question them, “Really?” Many of the things that come through in an intuitive or healing session do not make sense to me but have personal connection for the clients I am working with. I find there is always a higher purpose in all situations no matter if I “get it” or I don’t “get it”.
I recently met with a beautiful young woman and her mother. The teenage girl was quite gifted with her healing touch abilities as well as her amazing connection to the rock and crystal kingdom. She had been bullied in school and labeled with various issues throughout her short life. To recognize her inherent gifts would be a huge impact on her self-esteem and this is what I encouraged her to explore. Her mother and she went to a local rock shop here in town to pick up some things so the teenage girl could start experimenting. As soon as they arrived, the mother was put off by the energy in an area of the store and was feeling quite anxious. She wanted to leave, but found her daughter happily exploring in another room of the shop so she decided to stay. The young woman found a few stones that called to her and together they went to the register to pay for their purchase. As they were checking out, the mother mentioned to the man helping them that her daughter was a natural healer and was learning more about her connection to rocks. He asked the young girl, “Did you see the rubies behind you?” She did not hear him, but the mother did. “Did you say rubies?” she asked. He nodded yes, and showed them the display. This was a clear message from Spirit.
In her session, the girl had asked about her half-sister who had passed. She wanted to know if she was okay now and if she had any messages for her. The sister was doing wonderful and told my client to be on the look out for a special sign she would be sending her soon – A ruby. My client’s sister’s name was Ruby and she wanted very much to give her validation and assistance with what she was going through in this time of her life.
What a beautiful blessing and gift. When the mother told me of this, the tears began to flow as I once again felt the love between these two sisters. It was also a nice confirmation to me that what I was seeing was real.
Earlier this week, I had the amazing opportunity to work with a client doing distance energy work. I’ve worked with her several times and most recently she’d been feeling out-of-place, like she didn’t belong. She’d gotten the intuitive nudge that she might possibly be a starseed or a starperson – a soul that has derived from another star system within the solar system. So many of her feelings coincided with what many in this situation express.
I started with a basic chakra clearing and asked for her guides to be present. This time, one guide I’d never seen stepped forward. He was unlike any other light being I’ve met before. He began to show me a technique of bringing golden light into her energy field and forming geometric shapes over and through her field. He said that she originated from Orion and this was an ancient healing technique used there. As her field and vibration increased, I began to see the most beautiful shapes form in front of her chakra system. They were colorful and well-defined. Starting at the root chakra, one pattern formed in front of it and then shot inside of the chakra itself with a surge of energy. The guide called these formations, “The Flower of Life” and said that they would assist my client and bring her further understanding. Her energy field was a whirl of activity, light and beauty at the end of the session.
Uhhhhhh……starpeople? Orion? Flower of Life? That’s a bit much for even me to swallow and I’m neck deep into the “woo-woo” stuff. But It felt so right. Being in the flow of the session I did not question it for a moment. Later, when my ego mind and logic came into play, I began to doubt.
As I sat in my office pondering what had happened, I felt a familiar presence in the room. It was Arch Angel Michael. “Still looking for confirmations, huh? You know there was a time when you just clapped your hands and said ‘AND SO IT IS’ and that was all there was to it. So, Ms. Doubting Thomas, why don’t you look up The Flower of Life and see what it is?”
(and by the way, there is a part of me that finds it incredibly funny that I have no issue at all talking to Angels and carrying on conversations with them, but to think that other light beings really exist in other star system seems like a stretch for me)
What I found online amazed me. It took my breath away. I know of sacred geometry and astronomy, but I am not versed in those studies. I had no knowledge of the impact of Orion to the ancients people of this planet, nor did I know that The Flower of Life was a symbol used in sacred geometry or that the two are tied together. To discover that was a HUGE ah-hah moment for me.
Allow me to introduce, The Flower of Life…
I share this with you, not to put myself up on a pedestal, for that is not my intent. My intent is to show you that sometimes trust and faith are vastly underrated. We can spend so much of our time searching for validation that we miss the gifts and blessings directly in front of us. The only confirmation that you really need is that your intuitive guidance feels RIGHT for YOU.
And let me just finish that off with a loud clapping of my hands as I affirm, “AND SO IT IS!”
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.
Blessing the Land and Honoring Those Who Went Before Us
I never quite know what kinds of requests I’m going to receive, and when I got this one it was a shocker for me (yes, I still get shocked over things…hahaha). A client had been contacting me for clearings since she started working at a particular location and was still feeling “off”. Her energy as well as the energy of other employees were low and drained as well as sales were not what they should be. She then asked me to tap into the location where she worked to see if I picked up anything.
Energy is energy. Just like a satellite signal can travel through your television station, I can trace and sense the energy of a location from a distance without being there. We all have this ability, as do all animals. When I tapped into the vibration I got the distinct feeling of a whirlwind of energy and FEAR OF DEATH coming through very loud and clear. My client asked if this was affecting her health and her job, which it definitely was, as well as that of the other employees. I caught the vibe that the place needed to be cleared and blessed, along with some shamanic work and that there were 4 or 7 souls that needed to be crossed over.
As I explained my findings, the client asked me, “Can you clear it?” This area is a local Las Vegas housing community being built that is still under construction. “How big of an area is it, ” I asked. “Fifteen acres, ” she said.
Fifteen acres…..that’s a lot of land. My ego mind began to fill with doubt and all the reasons why I shouldn’t, but my Spirit relaxed. I told the client I would think about it and let her know.
I worked with the energies of the land from a distance, and the story began to unfold. There was a small group of Native American Indians that utilized this land. It was a place they would set up camp in the change of seasons as they migrated back and forth. One day a group of soldiers came to make them move. They wanted them to relocate. They proclaimed that this was not the land of the Indians, though their ancestors had been using it for centuries. Seven strong warriors from this tribe did their best to protect their land and their families. They perished in a short-lived battle against the white soldiers and their armory of weapons. The braves took out four of the soldiers during the fight.
The souls of the warriors and the soldiers were still tied to this land. The Indians were incredibly angry over what transpired and vowed to never allow anyone to take their land from them. This land was sacred. It was a part of their heritage. It was a part of them. The soldiers were earthbound due to the trauma that had happened and in essence, their energy was being drained and used by the warriors to fuel their anger. Imagine being trapped in a room, outnumbered by your greatest enemy. Now imagine that same feeling, multiply it by a thousand and extend the time for all eternity. Not such a pleasant predicament.
A few days ago, I drove out to the site with my 8-year-old son, Adam, who is also a sensitive and medium. I hadn’t told him anything about what I’d felt. I just told him I needed to make a stop at a place I was clearing on our way home from running errands. As soon as we pulled onto the property my stomach began to churn. I felt nauseous. My head began to spin. I pulled over and parked the car. Adam told me that the spirits were not happy to have us there and that his stomach was hurting really bad. I thought I was going to vomit, so we got out of the car for a few minutes before leaving. I’ve never had that strong of a reaction to any clearing work I’ve ever done, or any area I’ve been to, and I’ve been to some really dark places before. I knew that this was not going to be an easy process.
With the Shamanic work I do, many earthbounds, especially the ones causing trouble, do not like me at all. They will try to scare me, hurt me and cause me pain. They sense that I am there to aid in their crossing and they are not too happy about it. I made sure that Adam and I left quickly and we began to clear our energy and release the vibration that we’d walked into. No wonder the client was feeling out of sorts! There is no way I could concentrate with all that going on.
I sat in meditation with my guides about this location. I was shown a way to connect to the souls of the soldiers during the full moon. I used this opportunity to help them cross over. This weakened the anger of the warriors and it also lessened their resolve. They had been fully confident that the soldiers would remain with them as a form of punishment for what had happened.
I needed to be on site to finish the clearing and it had to be a time when the construction crews were not working. The moving and shifting of the land caused great torture to the warriors. There was no way I could reason with them while construction and building was going on.
Spirit showed me that today was to be the day. I sat in deep trance before I left to the site. The warriors wanted me to feel their pain, their sadness and their agony over being torn away from their families and all they loved in this world. There was no honor in what had happened to them and to their people. I allowed their emotions to pour through me as tears ran down my face. I spoke to them of understanding betrayal and disrespect. I projected my soul’s energy to them to prove to them that along my soul’s journey I have encountered similar experiences. To stay in one place with such negative emotion was to hold constant to a lower vibration. It was to be away from those that loved them and held them dear. It was to be alone, not amongst great Spirit and their people. Still, they held doubt. I had them thinking, but not quite believing.
Each shift in consciousness begins with a baby step. I was happy to know that I at least got them thinking.
I did not see these warriors as bad people or evil spirits. I saw them as being in pain. All anger is a result of pain, and they had lots to feel angry about. My intention was yes, to clear the land for the client, but most of all my deepest purpose was to bring these brave men peace and rejoin them with their family.
I asked Great Spirit to allow me to be a vehicle to bring forth wisdom and healing. Guidance brought through that I was to dress in the manner of my own ancestors out of respect for the warriors and their people. With my hair braided and turquoise adorning my neck and ears, I began to make an offering to honor those who had made their life on this land. Tobacco, sweet grass, sage, turquoise stones and other rocks filled the medicine bag and soon I was out the door and on my way.
I arrived on site and was guided to build a medicine wheel near the back of the property that is closest to BLM land. My guides told me it was important that the clearing and blessing be complete by noon, so I wasted no time getting started. I began to build a medicine wheel out of rocks, and as I did so, the warriors gathered around me. They were quite curious as to what I was doing but asked no questions. They did not try to hurt me. Sweet grass was used to call in the ancestors, the grandmothers and grandfathers who walked the land before us and tribute was paid to the four directions and elements. I entered the wheel and began sacred prayer of blessing and clearing. I called to the warriors and told them I meant them no harm. I was there to help them heal and release their pain. This place was to be used by others now, as a community for others to share and experience love and prosperity with their own families. As I spoke the words and opened my heart a crowd gathered inside the wheel. Loved ones, power animals and the souls of other warriors stood with me. We are all one, I told the warriors. We are all connected. Your blood is our blood. Your pain is our pain. Our light is your light. Allow us to truly pay honor to you and this land by helping you to cross over to those you love so dearly. Let go of the anger and allow this land to thrive once more.
The beauty and emotion experienced in those moments that the warriors entered the wheel and were led home will forever be imprinted upon my heart and my soul. It was a sacred, holy instance and I am grateful and honored to bare witness to such a miracle. Their homecoming and celebration continues, I’m sure. Many gathered to lead them home.
I got back into my car, looked at the clock to see it was 12:00pm on the dot! All in divine time. A feeling of peace washed over me and my heart seemed to feel a bit larger knowing that these brave warriors were finally free. The Universe is much lighter and brighter tonight as these brave souls released their trauma and entered once again into the loving vibration of Great Spirit.
