How Heavenly Beings Help You Every Day

Butterfly at Hershey Gardens

Have ever had a hunch or received a thought that let you know in advance of an event that is going to occur? Have you ever found yourself in the perfect place at the perfect time? There are no coincidences in this world. Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, your Heavenly Support Team, made up of God, the Archangels, guardian angels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit, help you with your life every day. They do this through repetitive external signs, strong urges, and messages sent through the invisible network that connects all of us to them, as well as every being.

Magic Occurs Every Day

There is magic in this world. Our guys and gals in Heaven help to orchestrate events in our lives in order to help us to better navigate this world. They do it because they love us and want to help us. Even though they are in Heaven, they know life on Earth can be challenging. They enjoy the benefits of Heaven, but also use their wonderful access to knowledge about our lives from the Akashic Records in the Hall of Records to give us a heads up or steer us into situations which will benefit us and those around us. We are not alone in this world. We have entire teams of beings who help us from the Other Side.

Opening Up to the Amazing Guidance

To access this extraordinary information, you need to remain open to the possibilities. The more you live your life in the present and pay attention to the world around you, the more you will receive the signs and messages, as well as understand the guidance. Moreover, learning about how your Heavenly Support Team communicates with you will help you to decipher what they are trying to share with you. The language of spirit-to-spirit communication is one of the senses, both earthly and extrasensory. We are all born with these earthly and extrasensory senses. You can learn how to access them by educating yourself about the language of the soul.

All Senses are Utilized – Earthly and Extrasensory

On Earth, we rely mainly on our physical senses – seeing, feeling, hearing, smelling, and tasting – to navigate the world around us. The stimulus around us sends signals to our brains to help us interpret the information. For example, when you smell a rose, the scent molecules your nose inhales send signals to the receptors in your brain. Simultaneously, your eyes see the rose and, if you reach out and touch it, your fingers feel it. All of this information is transmitted to your brain, pieced together, and filed within your mind to form a memory. When you encounter this flower again or have an experience that triggers this memory, your mind brings forth the files providing recognition of this previously encountered flower.

Extrasensory senses mirror our physical senses; however, the information is received internally through the invisible network that connects us all. Instead of external stimuli, the information is seen within the mind’s eye, felt within the body, heard within the mind, and smelled and tasted internally. There is an additional extrasensory sense, which is claircognizance or clear-knowing. This consists of information that is known within and emerges without previous thought.

Many people receive psychic or intuitive messages; however, they may not understand where the information comes from. Awareness of how the information is being received helps in the educational process about spirit to spirit communication along the invisible network which connects us to all beings in existence.

Telepathic Connections

The easiest way to give a basic understanding of spirit communication is to think of it as a telepathic connection. When you are very close to another human being or animal on earth, you can receive impressions which may provide insight into the other person and what they may be doing at a particular time. The energetic impressions and information is sent through the invisible network at the heart of each of our spirits. The same is true for spirit to spirit communication. The information is received through your internal extrasensory senses. Because the means of communication differs from earthly means (speaking and body language), there are deeper nuances and symbols which are used to convey information. It is like an abstract puzzle which needs to be pieced together using all of your earthly and extrasensory senses.

Messages You Hear – Clairaudience

You may receive a thought that does not feel like it originated from you. Most of the time, it comes through in your own voice, but you know it is not a thought that originated from you.  Other times, it comes through in the voice of a loved one in spirit or an angel, which you may or may not be able to identify. The thoughts you receive are there to provide guidance and assistance with events in your life ranging from trivial to important. The messages never contain information about hurting yourself or others, as your Heavenly Support Team is all about love and positive assistance. It may be a one-word message or it may be a string of words providing guidance or direction about a situation you are experiencing. For example, when I was interested in purchasing a stand for my television, I kept hearing the word “Target.” I knew my guys and gals in spirit were directing me to go to the Target store to purchase the stand. I did purchase one on sale and in the next week, the price dropped even more. As an added bonus, I was able to collect the difference from the store for the deeper sale price.

Music that plays in your head is another way loved ones in spirit and the angels send you messages. When it happens, look up the lyrics. You can Google them by typing in the word “lyrics” and whatever words you are hearing. There is a message within those lyrics for you. Again, your Heavenly Support Team will never send messages telling you to hurt yourself or anyone else. Pay attention to what you were thinking about prior to the music playing in your head. If you were just wondering about a time frame for an event and you hear a song with a time or season reference, such as the Monster Mash (October) or Hot Fun in the Summer Time, they are giving you a heads up about when it will occur.

Getting a Feeling – Clairsentience

You may experience strong and repetitive urges to take positive action. When your guys and gals in spirit do this, they are trying to help steer you into a positive situation for you. For example, I kept getting a very strong urge to paint my bathroom as if you were immersed in the Caribbean Sea when you walked in. It was a project I had wanted to do, but the urge became so strong that I could no longer put it off. While I was in the middle of the project, one of my beloved pets crossed over to the Other Side. Painting a beautiful image is a form of meditation for me, and my guys and gals in spirit knew I needed to have a large project to work on to help me through the grieving process, and it did. There is a lot of love worked into the murals I painted and I know my Heavenly Support Team helped by providing healing and love while I painted.

There are other times in which you may have an urge to go to a specific location, such as the grocery store, only to run into a friend you have not seen in a long while, but had been thinking about. When you remain open to life, you can experience many wonderful adventures.

Seeing a Sign – Clairvoyance

Your Heavenly Support Team may also place repetitive visual clues in front of you to help you with your path. Years ago when I was thinking of heading back to college at night while working full-time, I started receiving post cards and mail from a nearby college. I had not applied for any colleges, nor did I ask for information to be sent. I also kept seeing billboards and references to this college on people’s cars, as well as verbal references which could not be mistaken. After looking into the college, it turned out to be an excellent option for me to take accelerated night courses. Your guys and gals in spirit do this for you, as well. They have the ability to place items in front of you and orchestrate events in such a way that it is hard to ignore.

How to Learn More

Reading books about intuition and spirit communication, also known as mediumship, as well as taking classes, will help you learn about and make the most of the ways your Heavenly Support Team communicates with you. An open mind and an open heart, accompanied by knowledge, will open up amazing sources for assistance with your life path, as well as continued relationships with those who have crossed over into Heaven, and much more. Enjoy the incredible connections with your Heavenly Support Team and the wonderful ways in which they help you every day!

Communicating Across Dimensions: Are Readings Over the Phone and Video Chat as Effective as an In-Person Reading?

Can readings by a Spirit Medium over the phone or using video chat services be as effective and powerful as those received in-person? The short answer is yes, and it has everything to do with the way loved ones in spirit and the angels transmit information to the Spirit Medium.

How Loved Ones in Spirit Communicate

When loved ones in spirit are bringing through information to me, they are using all my extrasensory and earthly senses. This complex form of communication occurs through the transference of energy for a richer experience of detail and firsthand knowledge from the source of the information. Because loved ones in spirit and the angels do not have physical voice boxes, the information is transmitted soul-to-soul using a form of telepathic transmission utilizing all the senses. I often tell people that it is not like a fireside chat in which loved ones in spirit or the angels are using only words to convey information. Instead, it is like an abstract puzzle which needs to be put together through internal impressions of images, sounds, feelings, physical indicators, tastes, and smells sent to provide identifying information, as well as messages and guidance. Here are some examples of how loved ones in spirit provide information.

Extrasensory Seeing

In my mind’s eye, also referred to as the third eye, I see images which provide detailed information about what loved ones in spirit looked like in life usually close to the time of their passing, scenes from their lifetime to help with the identification process (jobs, hobbies, objects, houses they lived in, etc.), images of recent events the recipient of the reading participated in to demonstrate they have been visiting from heaven, images of future events, and symbols to indicate personality traits and their relationship with the recipient of the reading.

Extrasensory Hearing

They send sounds, which I hear internally, such as songs, words in other languages to indicate they spoke a language other than English, names of people and pets, metal hitting metal to indicate they worked with metal in their lifetime, words and phrases they used, specific messages to their loved ones on earth, and much more. It is interesting to note when communicating with someone who spoke a language other than English, I hear a few words in the other language or languages to provide the identifying information, then the language switches to English for me to comprehend the information coming through.

Extrasensory Feeling

Physically, I receive indicators of how loved ones in spirit passed, including pins and needles-like tingling in an area affected by cancer, pressure in the region of my heart if they experienced a heart attack, or achiness in the kidneys if they were failing at the end. I can also experience indicators such as slight shortness of breath or brief dizziness as experienced by the loved one in spirit, as well as hundreds of other physical indicators a loved one in spirit experienced around the time of their passing. It is important to note that as a professional Spirit Medium, I have learned how to tell the difference between the physical indicators they send as opposed to issues I may be personally experiencing with my own health.

In addition to physical indicators, I get a good feel for their personalities, as well as what loved ones in spirit were experiencing emotionally and mentally not only at the end of their life, but also during specific situations they are bringing to my attention to share with the recipient. Loved ones in spirit who had a good sense of humor love to bring that through. People who were grouchy toward the end or throughout life, usually just show me or tell me that instead of bringing those emotions through to be felt and experienced.

Extrasensory Tasting and Smelling

Taste and smell do come into play as well. For example, if a loved one in spirit was a good cook or baker, had a sweet tooth, drank alcohol, used mothballs, or smoked, they will transmit the taste and smell to me, usually accompanied by images or words.

Unique Details for Soul-Healing Experiences and Guidance

The level of detail of the information coming through is amazing and unique to the loved one in spirit. Often, when providing these impressions, they use multiple senses at a time to convey a more complete situational view in a first-person perspective from the loved one in spirit. I do not control or filter the information they bring. As the receiver of the information, it is my job to describe, in as much detail as possible, all the impressions and transmissions I am receiving. This occurs when I am sitting with the recipient in person, or over the phone, or while using video chat services.

Physical Distance is Not an Issue

I do not need to be in someone’s physical presence for the information to come through with clarity. It comes through the same way, and I describe it the same way, as I do when the recipient is in my physical presence. Loved ones in spirit and the angels can see us and know when we are sitting for a reading. In fact, they are most likely the ones who prompted you to receive their communications from the Other Side. When loved ones in spirit or the angels want to get messages to you, they speak to my guys and gals in heaven and begin the process of facilitating our meeting. Therefore, when you sit for a reading, they are already present and ready to transmit information and messages.

Remember, your loved ones in spirit are communicating across dimensions. Physical distance between those of us on earth has no impact on the information coming through. It is also good to know when you sit for a reading, your loved ones in spirit are with you, no matter where you are. They can be in your presence and still communicate with me across any distance because there truly is no separation between us. We are all connected through the hearts of our spirits using an invisible network which connects us all.

Just as Powerful

Over the years, I have experienced many powerful readings over the phone and using video chat services. One of my favorite examples from a phone reading include a woman whose husband was coming through in spirit. After bringing through information about what he looked like, his personality, who he was to her, how he passed, what he did for a living, and more, she was able to definitively identify and claim him as her deceased husband. Once he was identified, we moved into the second phase of bringing through the messages he had for her. In the process of bringing through messages, he conveyed to me that he was with her right at that moment and showed me an image of her. I described what I was seeing and what he was conveying. The description included the room she was in and the layout, the clothes she was wearing, and her hair color and style, as well as her physique. She was stunned because the description was accurate. There was no way I could know that information because she was thousands of miles away and I had never met her. This was a very powerful moment in her reading, because she knew, without a doubt, her husband in spirit was in her presence at that very moment.

In every reading, unique information is shared by loved ones in spirit that help you to know it is truly them. It is important to note, though, that demanding certain information from loved ones in spirit, such as a code word or song as proof it is them, often backfires as your loved ones in spirit will bring what they want to bring, not necessarily what you demand. In life, people do not always behave in a way you expect, and it is the same when they are coming through in spirit. There are important soul-level reasons for the information they bring and there are often messages within the messages pointing to specific situations, personality traits, and more that loved ones in spirit convey during a reading. Moreover, they will bring through unique information to help you identify them. It is information that I would have no prior knowledge of, such as descriptions of houses they grew up in, pets, jobs, hobbies, specific objects they owned, descriptions of siblings and children on earth that I never met, meaningful situations in which only you and your loved one in spirit were present for, and so much more. This is their way of letting you know it is really them. It is important to remain open to who comes through for you, as well as their messages. They know better than you what you need to hear and who you need to hear it from in order to bring healing and guidance to you and your loved ones on earth on a soul level. When they are taking the time and energy to communicate across dimensions, it is often a much deeper experience than most people expect.

Communicating with the Archangels

When connecting with the Archangels for an Angel Reading about guidance for your life, the communications come through in the same manner using all my extrasensory senses and earthly senses. They send detailed impressions of current and future events, answers to questions about your life and the lives of those you love, and much more. The Archangels are very fluid in their communications because they have more experience communicating across dimensions. Again, I do not need to be in the physical presence of the recipient of the reading to receive this information. As the receiver, the information is sent to me regardless of where I am or where you are in the world.

Love is the Key Element

Throughout all the communications from the Other Side, love is the key element which makes spirit to spirit communication possible. We are all created from love and are love. It is the essence of our spirits. The information transmitted across dimensions is done so with love and with the aim of bringing healing and guidance to your life. When you sit for a reading, whether in person, over the phone, or using video chat services, it is through love that this information is transmitted—your love for your loved ones in spirit and the angels, their love for you, and my love for all beings both here and in heaven.

Sending much love and many blessings to you!

Synchronicity: How Events are Facilitated on Earth with Divine Timing

Green Tree Surrounded by Arid DesertDo you know that no matter what actions you take, you are always on the right path for you? Even when it seems mistakes are being made or you are unsure about which path to follow, events are being orchestrated from the Other Side to help lead you into situations which provide maximized opportunities for growth and dreams fulfilled.

Soul Lessons

Deep within our souls, we have information which contains our goals for this lifetime. Our goals are defined by the soul contracts we created prior to birth about the lessons we agreed to learn this time around. This information was obscured from us when we were born in order to allow us to work through challenges and experiences with an open mind and to provide opportunities for us to rediscover our divine reasons for being. In many ways, it may seem as though we are blindly forging ahead, not knowing what will happen or what to expect, but hoping for the best. The good news is we are not alone on this journey. We receive a tremendous amount of assistance from our Heavenly Support Teams who help us navigate our paths through signs and messages, as well as help us to be in the right place at the right time for events to unfold with impeccable divine timing.

Worrying About Outcomes

As human beings, we have the tendency to worry about outcomes and will attempt to take actions to drive the outcomes we desire. Questions swirl in our minds about what is going to happen in the future with our relationships, careers, jobs, finances, children, parents, friends, family, pets, and more. We question our decisions and actions, often wondering if they were the right ones. Worrying, though, does not change what is destined to occur. Often, worry halts forward progress and robs us of the present because we can become lost in the various worst-case scenarios our minds create and replay as if the answers for being prepared are hidden within the “what-if” story lines we imagine. Even if the worst-case scenarios do occur, there are positive reasons for those negative circumstances. There are times when we must go through the challenging times in order to grow as souls or help others on their path. The positive reasons and benefits might not be revealed right away, but if you keep looking for them, they will be revealed to you in time. Often, when experiencing extremely tragic circumstances, it is very difficult to see how anything positive can come out of them. It is important to keep in mind the lessons we agreed to learn in this lifetime through our soul contracts. I have personally experienced great tragedy that I would never wish on anyone else, nor would I want to go through it again; however, I have reached a point where I can not only recognize the lessons I learned, but also be grateful for the experiences that made me who I am today.

Divine Intervention

All experiences, whether positive or negative, are designed to help us successfully progress through our soul lessons. The Archangels, tasked with helping humankind with their journeys, facilitate events on earth to maximize the opportunities for each soul. The timing, whether you agree with it or not, is truly amazing. The sheer scale of the real-time planning and organization of events is mind-boggling. With every action there is a reaction with rippling effects across the lives of many, which then creates more actions and reactions, all of which tie in to our individual soul contracts. The ripples keep going without end, creating perpetual cycles which weave together to simultaneously assist with the achievement of personal soul lessons while maintaining a functioning world. The incredible precision for the timing of events for millions of people is truly astounding; and yet, it occurs often without notice or appreciation. It is usually when major events line up in such a way that the only conclusion is divine intervention, that our eyes are opened to this phenomenon of being in sync with our divine plans and we recognize the hand of something greater than us steering our courses.

This amazing synchronicity is sometimes mistakenly classified as a coincidence. There really are no coincidences. Each event on earth is carefully and strategically planned based on what needs to happen for each one of us in real-time. No amount of worrying would have changed these events. They were meant to occur when all people and events were in alignment with one another.

In my own life, I have seen incredible events converge not only for myself, but also for others. In that moment, I can see how prior experiences and lessons brought myself or others to the exact moment in time in which dreams come true, prayers are answered, or lessons learned. With the epiphany comes the realization that without the events of the past, the current circumstances could not have evolved because we would not be where we needed to be, spiritually or emotionally, in order to receive this divinely-timed gift.

Making the Most of Our Time

In essence, if we can learn to release excessive worries and embrace present moments, we are gifting ourselves with the ability to enjoy our lives with a sense of calm and acceptance. Over the years, I have learned to release the struggle of trying to make situations go the way I wanted them to go. I learned to make plans, but to be open to changes. I also review experiences from the past to determine what I could do better going forward and to look for the positive reasons for negative circumstances. While looking forward and backward, I do my best to not get caught up in what is going to happen next or rehash the past so many times that it becomes detrimental. There is a balance that can be achieved through the acceptance of that which cannot be controlled for the future and an acknowledgement of circumstances of the past, which can bring you to a place in your life where you can focus your attention on the present. In doing so, you can make the most of your time here on earth while remaining open to those incredible moments of synchronicity.

Namaste!

With Love and Light,

Exploring the Great Mysteries: Why Spirit Communication Uses All the Senses

When loved ones communicate from the Other Side, they use all the senses to bring through identifying information, as well as messages for their loved ones here on earth. Recently, a client asked me why they do that rather than sharing information through straightforward conversation using words alone. If they can transmit words and phrases, why don’t they just do that instead of using all my senses to transmit messages and information?

How Spirit Communication Works

As a spirit medium, I receive and share communications from the Other Side on a daily basis, not only for myself, but also for clients interested in connecting with their deceased loved ones. It is a complex form of communication utilizing all the senses to transmit information across dimensions from one being to another. Images of deceased loved ones are sent to my mind’s eye, also referred to as the Third Eye, to provide a description of what they looked like in life. They also send images of activities they participated in while on earth, places they lived, jobs they worked, hobbies, and more, to help with the identification process. Words, phrases, meaningful songs, and sound effects are used to enhance and add to the information coming through. In addition, physical indicators are provided to indicate how they passed, as well as if there was anything unusual about their physical condition that would be noteworthy in order to help identify them. I receive a good feel for their personality traits, as well as memories associated with specific tastes and scents. The information needs to be pieced together like an abstract puzzle in order to identify the loved ones coming through, as well as to interpret the messages they are sending. All this information is transmitted from their spirit to mine through the invisible network which connects all of us to one another.

When my client asked why loved ones in spirit communicate in such an elaborate way instead of just stating the information in a straightforward manner, it got me to thinking. Why don’t they do that? It would certainly be easier than piecing together the bits of information to identify them and bring through messages. To me, the way they communicated using all my senses was a given. I never questioned it. I accepted it without question as their preferred method of communication. When presented with this question, I asked my Heavenly Support Team for the answers.

 Receiving Answers

The most immediate answer I received was that spirit communication is part of the great mysteries. By that, I mean the great mysteries of our existence. For example, the reasons for our existence, why we are experiencing life on earth, and whether heaven exists. As human beings, we are on a spiritual journey on earth to grow as souls. We experience a myriad of challenges and victories designed to help us to discover our strengths and weaknesses, to learn to love ourselves and others, and to help us discover within ourselves our connection with the divine and beliefs about what exists beyond life on earth. Faith is a significant part of our lessons. Throughout our lives we face a multitude of situations designed to build or instill faith. The gift of free will enables us to decide for ourselves what to believe or disbelieve.

Providing a Blank Canvas for Learning

 When we were born, the knowledge we had of heaven was temporarily veiled from us. This is done to provide us with the maximum amount of opportunities to grow as souls, because if we came down here knowing everything, there would be nothing to strive toward. Part of our spiritual journey includes the quest to rediscover the hidden knowledge about the existence of worlds and beings beyond our earthly existence. Because life is a journey based on free will choices about whether to believe or disbelieve in something greater than us, we are given glimpses or hints of the extraordinary through miracles, near death experiences, dreams, visions, and spirit communications and signs, including uncanny circumstances that have no earthly explanation. These experiences are designed to inspire us to think, question our beliefs, reinforce our faith, or provide answers to questions about our lives.

Leaving Room for Questions

The phenomenon of spirit communication provides proof of our existence beyond life on earth, but it also leaves room for questions. It is the universal language of the soul which transcends ordinary verbal communication in order to provide in-depth first-person perspectives from the deceased loved one. Unique identifying information, which would not be known to the spirit medium but known to the recipient of the reading or their loved ones, is shared to provide proof of the deceased loved one’s continued existence in spirit. It could be the description of a specific episode in the life of the recipient or the recipient’s relatives in which only they were present and no one else has knowledge of its occurrence.

The very richness of the communications using all the senses provides a fully immersive perspective from the sender, which allows for seeing, feeling, hearing, tasting, smelling, and knowing information about the past, present, and future. Language barriers do not exist, as any words or phrases brought through are automatically translated into a language the spirit medium understands. This is true for deceased loved ones who spoke a different language, as well as animals who also have the ability to communicate spirit-to-spirit. The incredible experience of communicating spirit-to-spirit goes beyond two-dimensional verbal communications to a fully immersive experience providing detailed sensory impressions of actual experiences of the deceased, as well as information and guidance about the future. The process itself is awe-inspiring and humbling, as it brings forth knowledge and proof of that which exists beyond life on earth. In view of our purpose in life to journey onward as souls gathering knowledge and basing our spiritual beliefs upon our experiences, it makes sense that spirit communication is part of the great mysteries. It provides extraordinary insights and knowledge which inspires us to think and to determine for ourselves if we are believers.

Signs and Messages to Loved Ones on Earth

When loved ones in spirit send signs or bring through messages directly to their loved ones on earth, without the help of a trained spirit medium, they use all the senses. For example, they will place a scent in the air which reminds the receiver of the scent of a loved one in spirit, such as their specific cologne or perfume, cigarette smoke, flowers, or food baking or cooking. The scents piped into the air usually do not fit within the environment in which they are experienced. For example, one morning I smelled brownies baking in my kitchen, even though no one in the house was cooking or baking and had not for hours, and all the windows were closed, meaning the scent was not wafting in from a neighbor’s home. There were no scented candles lit or any other devices which would have piped the scent into the air. There was no earthly origin for that scent. It immediately brought to mind my father’s mother, who loved to bake and cook. It was her way of letting me know she was around.

Because loved ones in spirit utilize all our senses to communicate, they have a vast treasure trove of methods for getting our attention in order to let us know of their existence beyond life on earth. These occurrences, which are not coincidences, inspire awe and wonder about the great mysteries, which is exactly what they are designed to do. Through the gift of free will, human beings have the ability to believe or disbelieve the information being provided. Instead of providing all the answers in a straightforward manner, beings in spirit employ communication methodologies which encourage the inner journey of determining personal faith and beliefs. Again, this quest to rediscover the knowledge within our souls is part of our spiritual journey as human beings and is written into our soul contracts of lessons for this lifetime.

It is an Honor

For me, the ability to communicate spirit-to-spirit is a unique gift and an honor. It enables me to help others on earth to better understand our universe, how spirit communication works, our soul purposes, and evidence of what exists beyond life on earth. It does not mean I am all-knowing. Like you, I am on a spiritual journey to rediscover the hidden knowledge of the great mysteries. Being able to communicate directly with beings in spirit fulfills the calling bestowed upon me in this lifetime to be the bridge between this world and the next. It enables me to help others with their spiritual journeys, while also encouraging my own explorations into the deeper meanings behind our existence.

May your own journey include many inspiring moments of wonder and awe, as well as encouragement to explore beyond the ordinary experiences of life to reveal the extraordinary mysteries of the universe.

Namaste!

With Love and Light,

Experiencing Paranormal Activity? It Could Be Your Loved Ones in Spirit

There is much more to our world than what appears to be. Our loved ones who have crossed over into Heaven have amazing access to our world, which means they can not only communicate across dimensions, but also can make their presence known to us in ways that use all our senses. They do not mean to frighten you with their activity, but rather, they want to get your attention to let you know they are around and to share helpful information with you about your life or the lives of those you love. Anyone who has lost a loved one can experience paranormal activity. It does not mean you have a ghost in your home, but rather loved ones in spirit who are doing their best to let you know you are loved and supported. Knowing how they do this will help you to understand communications across dimensions and why it is happening.

There are many ways in which loved ones in spirit try to gain your attention. If you are ignoring their subtler signs, which can easily happen if you are not aware of the signs, they may increase their activities to the point in which you cannot ignore them. Usually, this is when people reach out to me to figure out what is going on. Here are some examples of how loved ones in spirit try to get your attention:

Visual Signs

  • Seeing them, a bar of light, or shadow out of the corner of your eye. Most of the time when you turn to look, the shape or image is no longer visible.
  • Repeatedly seeing numbers that remind you of a loved one in spirit, such as a house number, birthday, death date, anniversary, or favorite number.
  • Seeing repeated visual reminders of them in the form of images or words, such as frequent references to their favorite activities, jobs they worked, or favorite locations.
  • Visitations in your dreams.
  • The appearance or images of butterflies, ladybugs, cardinals, blue jays, dragonflies, hummingbirds, hawks, rainbows, coins, and more could be a sign that a loved one in spirit is near.
  • Moving objects, such as tilting pictures or artwork, knocking a picture or artwork over or off the wall, making a rocking chair rock on its own, or moving a small object like a pen.
  • Removing objects from your space and returning them. Often the objects are important to you or them, such as jewelry, photographs, keys, or watches.
  • Electronics acting up, including the digitizing of your television screen, the freezing or malfunctioning of phones and computers in a strange manner, lights blinking or blowing out, or car windows malfunctioning (going up and down on their own).
  • Seeing your loved one in spirit fully manifested in front of you like a ghost (rare but does occur). They do not do this often because it takes a tremendous amount of energy to do this and it can sometimes be disconcerting to the person seeing them.

Auditory Signs

  • Hearing your name being called in their voice.
  • Hearing music that reminds you of them, especially if it is a song you would not normally hear or hearing it with perfect timing to coincide with your thinking of them.
  • Hearing music that plays in your head. As a note, they use this method to get direct messages to you. Look up the lyrics.
  • Hearing their name or nickname spoken by someone else.
  • Experiencing a radio or musical device acting up or turning on by itself with or without a power source.
  • Hearing people speaking when no one is physically in your presence. You may or may not be able to decipher the words.
  • Receiving thoughts that feel as though they are not your own and are heard in your own voice. They may come through as a word or phrase intended to help you. Loved ones in spirit will never send information telling you to hurt yourself or another.

Sensory Signs

  • Feeling the presence of a loved one in spirit. There is a heightened awareness or feeling that your loved one in spirit is with you.
  • Feeling a touch, as though someone placed their hand on your shoulder or arm.
  • Feeling a wash of love from head to toe. This is when tingles start at the top of your head and travel throughout your body. This is one of the ways loved ones in spirit send you hugs from Heaven.
  • Mysterious pains or sensations associated with a loved one’s ailments or passing. Usually, this occurs with spirit mediums who are trained to decipher the difference between personal ailments and sensory communications from loved ones in spirit.

Olfactory Signs

  • Smelling a scent that reminds you of them or you attribute to them. It usually does not belong where you are and is very strong, such as a perfume or cologne, cigarette smoke, chocolate, mothballs, or a favorite food they cooked or baked. You may be the only one who smells it.

Gustatory Signs

  • Experiencing a strong craving or taste for food they made or liked, as well as tasting cigarette or cigar smoke.

There are numerous ways loved ones in spirit let you know they are around. None of them should be ominous or threatening in any way. Fears can be heightened when there is a lack of understanding about how the spirit world operates, which is why there is a lot of misinformation out there regarding this topic. Many books, movies, and television shows have notoriously depicted paranormal activity as demonic beings intent on harming you. This is due to misunderstanding how spirit communication works from the Other Side, as well as the purposeful heightening of the fear factor for attention-getting purposes in film and television shows. To this day, I have never encountered anything I considered demonic or a poltergeist. Even if something like that did exist, I give it no power. The majority of the time, it is your loved ones in spirit trying to help you with your life or letting you know they are around loving and supporting you. Loved ones in spirit will also send you repeated signs to provide guidance for your life. If you are unsure of what your loved ones in spirit are attempting to convey, you can always book a reading with a professional spirit medium to receive direct messages from your loved ones in spirit. As a side note, those who had a funny or mischievous side to their personality in life still have that and will delight in having a bit of fun with you regarding their signs and the movement of objects.


When Paranormal Activity is More Pronounced or Disturbing
It is important to note that there are times when I and others have encountered heightened paranormal activity which can be disturbing if you do not know the source of the activity and why it is occurring in a jarring way. The sources of these disturbances tend to be a being in spirit who has not crossed over into Heaven, and they may cause stronger activity that come across as frightening, such as slamming doors or breaking objects. These souls, who have not crossed over into Heaven, are temporarily stuck between dimensions and are frustrated with their situation. They mean you no harm and are not upset with you. They are in your presence because you are open to the energies of souls in spirit, whether you are aware of that or not. They are desperate to get your attention in order to receive help in crossing over to the Other Side. There are many reasons why a soul does not cross over right away, such as not believing they belong in Heaven because of what they were taught on Earth or because they feel they have not completed tasks on Earth. What they need is compassion and assistance to cross over fully into Heaven. Whenever I come across souls in this situation, I help them by reopening the gateway and calling in the Archangels to help them transition from this world to the next. If you are experiencing disturbing paranormal activity, it is a good idea to check with a professional spirit medium to have them look into the activity to determine who it is and what needs to be done. Just telling these souls to leave will not work. If they could leave on their own, they would. It is also important to note that souls who are stuck between worlds are not necessarily tied to a particular location on Earth. Where they decide to hang out has to do with their connection with the people there or the location itself. Their presence is usually accompanied by a heavy or negative feeling due to their frustration and heavier energies of the Earth which have not been fully shed for the higher and lighter vibrational energies which accompany souls in Heaven. Again, these are not poltergeists or demons, but souls in a frustrating situation who need assistance crossing over to the Other Side.

It Is All About Love

In essence, when you are experiencing paranormal activity, it is most likely your own loved ones in spirit letting you know they are around. Their paranormal activities usually increase around important events, occasions, and holidays, as well as when you are going through challenging times. In addition, about a week or two before and a week or two after you see a spirit medium for a reading, they increase their activities because they are excited about being able to bring through direct messages and communications to you.

Our world is an amazing place that is so much more than what is perceived on the surface. The good news is, that it all revolves around the love that connects each and every one of us through the hearts of our spirits. The next time you experience unusual or paranormal activity ask, with your thoughts, who it is in spirit who is responsible for the activity. Whoever you think of first is who it is. Say hello and thank them for their presence. They love it when you recognize their signs and they love they send.

Namaste!

Managing Grief During the Holiday Season

Angel looking down

The holiday season is a time of celebration and joy with friends and family. For those who are coping with the loss of a loved one, it can be a painful experience, as memories arise of times past when loved ones were there, bringing sadness for the loss of their physical presence on Earth. There are wistful thoughts of how a loved one in spirit would have enjoyed a particular activity or laughed at the antics of our relatives or friends. It is a bittersweet time of sadness when the world around us is partaking in traditions designed to bring people together and celebrate the love we share with one another. For those who are grieving, it can feel as though there is a giant hole in our hearts as we keenly miss the presence of those who have crossed over into Heaven.

The First Year is the Hardest

When my father crossed over into Heaven several years ago, the first year was the hardest. Each milestone event, birthday, holiday, and family celebration brought a reminder of his passing. My heart would ache with the loss, even though I knew he was watching over me and my family from Heaven. He had passed in the month of September, which meant the holidays were right around the corner. I was not in the mood to celebrate, let alone drag out all of the decorations for the house and my Christmas tree. It was around that time I had received wonderful advice which helped me not only get through the holidays, but also ease the pain in my heart. The advice was to try to maintain my holiday traditions as much as possible and to create new ones in honor of my father. At the same time, if I felt the need to pull back from some of the other holiday celebrations, such as ones with friends or coworkers, it would be okay to do so if I did not feel up to it. Being alone on the big holidays was not a good idea, such as Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, because it would only lead to greater sadness.

Taking Time Out When Needed, But Keeping Traditions

That first year I did decline many of the holiday invitations I received from people outside of my family. My friends certainly understood my need for some quiet time away from the crowds. Instead, I read books and worked on art projects as a way of giving myself time to rest. I did decorate my house and my Christmas tree. Even though tears streamed down my face as memories of Christmases past brought the pain of the loss of my dad to the surface, I still pushed on and was very glad I did. The sadness would have been worse for me if I had not stuck to my traditions. The holiday season brings such joy and light to my household that the lack of any decorations would have magnified my grief.

Navigating the Holidays

My biggest dilemma was Christmas Eve. Several years before my dad passed, my parents divorced. Christmas Eve was the holiday I spent with my dad and Christmas Day I spent with my mom. Each year, my sister and I would go to my dad’s house on Christmas Eve where he would cook dinner and we would watch my dad’s favorite Christmas movie, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” My dad had a great sense of humor, and still does in spirit. He really loved that movie because it made him laugh, and when I say laugh, I mean body shaking with tears-in-the-eyes guffaw. It did not matter how many times he watched it, it would always crack him up as if he was watching it for the first time.

As my dad proudly chopped and prepped his special Christmas feast in the kitchen, he kept an eye on the movie and would start laughing right before his favorite lines would come up. It was great to enjoy this time with him. His infectious laughter and quoting of his favorite lines made my sister and I laugh even more. After dinner, we would finish watching the movie and open our presents together. On our way home, my sister and I would turn up the radio and sing Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. Laughter and songs filled the car as we marveled at the beautiful light displays on our ride home.

Creating New Traditions

The year my dad passed, my sister and I promised ourselves we would watch “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” every Christmas Eve. I know he watches along with us from Heaven, still laughing and quoting his favorite lines. In addition keeping that tradition, we decided to attend my aunt’s Christmas Eve party that she holds every year for my mom’s side of the family. At first, my sister did not want to go. I urged her to go, as I did not think it would be a good idea for either one of us to sit at home alone with the pain of missing our father wrapping itself around our hearts. Both of us did attend the Christmas Eve event and found ourselves surrounded by loving and understanding family who hugged us, shared fond memories they had with our dad,and welcomed us into the fold of this new holiday tradition for my sister and me.

Healing of the Heart and Spirit

The ensuing years have brought healing to our hearts. We know he is with us in spirit, not just during the holidays, but every day. Your loved ones in spirit are there for you, too. They hear you when you think of them and when you speak of them, they read the notes you write to them, and they watch over you and your family and friends from Heaven.  

Honor Yourself and Your Loved Ones in Spirit

Even though the pain of losing a loved one can be overwhelming during the holidays, it is good to give yourself a break when needed and to maintain traditions when you can. Creating new ones that honor your loved ones in spirit is a magnificent way to keep them close in your heart with fond memories of good times spent with one another and the love you share. From Heaven, our loved ones in spirit share the holidays with us. They watch over us as guardian angels and love it when we recognize their presence in our lives through the signs they send.

Our Spirits Entwined

In honor of all of your loved ones in spirit, I wrote this poem. May it bring you comfort and love this holiday season:

Our Spirits Entwined
By Karen T. Hluchan, Spirit Medium

As holiday preparations get underway,
I walk beside you in spirit each night and each day.
Your pain, sadness, joy, laughter, and tears,
Are felt within my spirit with each passing year.
I know your heart better than mine,
As we will always be connected, our spirits entwined.
The view from above is glorious and grand,
I reach out from Heaven to gently clasp your hand.
It will be okay, I am alright,
I am here with you now, sharing my love with all of my might.
I send you signs to let you know I am near,
Through feelings and images, words whispered in your ear.
The songs you hear that remind you of me,
Play for a purpose in all that will be.
Our love did not end on the day that I died,
It continues from Heaven, so strong are the ties.
We are never truly parted, God does have a plan,
To bring blessings to you and our entire clan.
Uplift your heart when I am near,
And share beautiful memories, so close and so dear.
When I appear in your dreams, please know it is me,
I am there to help out, to help you to see.
Your thoughts I can hear when they turn toward our life,
You are my everything, my heart without strife.
Do not be sad, as forever we will be,
Joined in our hearts, you and me.
I am your guardian angel, so true and so near,
I watch over your life and all that is dear.
Thank you for your love and all that we share,
I am here for you, my love, I need you, I care.
I am not far away, just a thought is all that is needed,
To have me by your side, your call is heeded.
Be gentle with your heart, and know I am there,
For now and forever, our souls will always be paired.

With Love and Light,

Embracing Change as an Opportunity for Growth

butterfly illustrationMany times, I have expressed that life on Earth is about learning lessons for our souls. Challenging times offer many opportunities for growth, while at the same time, may open up new vistas that would not have been available unless we experienced changes in our lives. As human beings, we have a tendency to like routines. They are comfortable and often bring a feeling of safety because we know what to expect and know what is expected of us. When we least expect it, events may occur which throw our comfortable routines into what is perceived as chaos, such as a job loss or the ending of an important relationship. Major events such as these can initially be perceived as very negative; however, they can also be the catalyst for necessary and important changes, as well as lesson learning, in our lives that would not have come about without these events.

Fear of the Unknown

Resistance to change exists due to a fear of the unknown. Like routines, there is comfort to be found in that which we know. Just because you do not know what will come next, does not mean it will be negative. Taking a risk or trying something new can often lead to amazing discoveries and opportunities for happiness and satisfaction. Clinging to the past and familiar routines prevents growth that can come from venturing beyond your norms into new experiences, which is why our lives are sometimes thrown into chaos. There are times when we need to be spiritually pushed into change in order to grow as souls.

Reasons for the Changes

The events in our lives are orchestrated according to the soul contracts we made prior to being born on Earth. Soul contracts are agreements made to learn particular lessons designed to help us achieve the most growth for our souls while on Earth. They are high-level plans which describe the lessons, but do not describe how events will unfold on Earth. This is because we have the gift of free will to make choices about our lives. Therefore, events need to be organized in real-time based on the choices we make on a moment-to-moment basis. We may be presented with an opportunity to learn a specific lesson for our souls; however, due to the choices we make, we may miss the opportunity for growth. Another series of events will be orchestrated in the future to help us to learn the lesson we missed. This will occur until we learn the particular lesson, while we are also being presented with other lessons we need to learn.

Orchestrating Events

Every event on Earth is designed to help multiple people at once. It is an extremely intricate process which requires the lining up of an incredible amount of details to bring about the changes and challenges necessary for growth. All the actions and events are directed by our Heavenly Support Teams based upon our soul contracts. To see the amazing ways in which these synchronicities are lined up is staggering with its sheer volume of details, all aimed at helping us live our lives in ways that bring about the opportunities for growth agreed to before birth.

Evolution through Change

Even though events may initially be perceived as negative, there is always a positive reason for their occurrence, which is the evolution of our souls through growth. As human beings, it is easy to get caught up in the negativity or fears surrounding change. It is the human ego, which is where our fears originate, that tries to derail us with negative thoughts of doom and gloom. The human ego is gifted to us when we are born as a generator of obstacles we are meant to learn how to manage. The negativity issued by the ego is necessary on Earth to present us with challenges for our agreed-to life lessons. In Heaven, this type of negativity does not exist. We have it on Earth because this is where we come for accelerated growth of our souls.

When major disruptions occur in our lives, we can allow ourselves to become stuck in the negative or we can work through the issues knowing there is a positive reason for their occurrence. To break out of the rut of negativity, do your best to focus on the solutions instead of the problem. Define actions you can take and start working on them. Even though events may take you on an unanticipated path, these events can also lead to a brighter future. As an example of this, when I was laid off after fifteen years with a corporate company, I could have allowed myself to wallow in the disparity of the loss. Instead, I saw it as an opportunity to invest in myself and my future by writing my first book and going full-time with my business. It took a tremendous leap of faith to do this. I cannot say that enough. I was entering a period in my life that would require great faith, very hard work, and strong determination to succeed. Once I made up my mind to focus on the solution, I took immediate action. Within 24 hours of being laid off, I was writing my book, contacting publishers to figure out the best steps to take, and moving forward with the expansion of my business. To this day, I am grateful for those life-changing circumstances because they pushed me into a situation that brought about opportunities to follow my passion and share my gifts with the world on a much larger scale.

You, too, can make important changes to your life. When faced with challenging circumstances, look to solutions. Open your mind to the possibilities and let go of that which you cannot change. It is healthy to mourn the loss of that which is gone and to acknowledge your pain; however, getting lost in the sadness by keeping your focus there for an extended period of time will not bring about the changes calling to your soul.

Moving Forward

Our lives are constantly evolving. There is comfort to be found in the familiar; however, without change there is no growth. Embrace the changes, look to the solutions, and take steps to bring about the solutions. Doing so may require great leaps of faith and hard work; however, the rewards awaiting you can bring about the very circumstances your soul needs. Whether it is a higher understanding of life’s events, the fulfillment of your personal calling, inner peace, making a positive difference in the lives of others, or much more, change can bring about opportunities that answer the call in your soul to evolve in ways which usher in personal satisfaction, meaningful growth, and profound discoveries about you and the world around you.

Namaste and great blessings to you!

Communicating with Animals

Orange and White Tabby CatAnimals are highly intelligent beings who experience emotions, much like human beings. Both live and deceased animals communicate spirit-to-spirit, in the same way loved ones in spirit communicate with spirit mediums. This form of communication uses all of the earthly and extrasensory senses. Pieces of information are shared using images, sounds, feelings, tastes, and smells, just as human beings in spirit share information. It is a complex form of two-way communication which transcends earthly communication with its depth and symbolic representations pulled from the databank of experiences of the receiver, the spirit medium.

Pets in Heaven

When pets come through during a spirit medium reading, they show me images of themselves as they were close to the time of their passing. They indicate how they passed through physical indicators, such as pain in the area of my kidneys if they experienced kidney failure, or excessive tiredness, pain in the head, and a feeling of confusion if they had a brain tumor. This is similar to the way human beings who have crossed over share their symptoms with me about the way they passed. The pain I experience is nothing close to the level of pain they experienced because it is only an indicator, not a reenactment. In order to provide information which helps their loved one to identify them, animals provide images of their toys or collars, their favorite location or activities on earth, or people who are living that they love. Once the animals have been identified and claimed by the recipient, they share their love and express messages, such as thanks for the love and care they received in life or the assistance they received to cross over into Heaven. Feelings are transmitted, as well as thoughts which are automatically translated into the language I understand best, which is English. The automatic translation process is the same as it is when human beings in spirit come through who spoke a language other than English. I hear all of the messages in English; however, immediately prior to that the loved ones speak in their language to indicate to me they spoke a language other than English.

Interestingly, as with human beings in Heaven, animals on the Other Side can take the form of their younger selves once they have crossed over. I have seen images of dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, ferrets, birds, and more in the prime of their lives in Heaven, looking happy and often surrounded by loved ones who have already crossed over. Any physical pain or disabilities experienced in life are gone, and a time of rest, relaxation, and play are ushered in.

Live Animal Communication

Communicating with live animals works the same way it does with loved ones in spirit and animals in spirit. The transmission of information uses all of the senses and translations of thoughts are a two-way process. Meaning, information sent from the animal is communicated in a language the spirit medium understands and the information from the spirit medium is sent in a way the animal understands. It is an amazing process. By the way, animals can and do have a sense of humor. Just like humans, they experience a full range of emotions that would surprise many people.

Domesticated animals tend to be like young children with their mindset. They can be stubborn, even when you try to explain something to them. When placed in a situation they are not familiar with or that is confusing, their fears can take over, blocking out rational thoughts. This is especially true when visiting the veterinarian. Many pets do not like going to the vet, especially cats, just like there are people who do not like going to the doctor. Being poked and prodded is not a comfortable experience for them. Plus, there are many different animals and smells, including the smell of fear from the other animals. Do your best to comfort your pets and ease their fears using soothing words and tones. They feel your heart and the love you share with them. Visualize that love flowing from the heart of your spirit to theirs to help ease their worries.

The Special Roles of Animals in Our Lives

The pets in our lives provide much love, companionship, and comfort. However, there is much more to their presence on Earth. This includes animals in the wild. There is so much more to their existence than what appears to be on the surface. In addition to teaching us many lessons about unconditional love, friendship, and the cycle of life, animals have important spiritual jobs. Loved ones in spirit and the angels engage animals to help convey messages to human beings on Earth. If a particular animal is making its presence known to you on a repetitive basis, I recommend looking up the spiritual meaning of that animal. For instance, if you have been seeing many opossums lately, it may be time for you to let go of any angst about troubles in your life and wait for a better time to address the issues. This is because the opossum carries the spiritual message of “playing dead,” a tactic they use when they feel threatened. There are no coincidences. Animals do send messages through their presence in our lives. In other instances, loved ones in spirit may ask the animals to appear for a loved one on Earth as a sign of their love and presence. Cardinals, blue jays, and hummingbirds are often used as messengers due to their eye-catching colors, importance to the deceased or living, and because birds have often been used as actual messengers, as is the case with carrier pigeons. Loved ones in spirit can also direct pets to knock over certain photographs and objects to get our attention. After coming home from a group reading in which I was a participant, not the spirit medium, I noticed a small painting of my sister and I lying face down in my home office. My dad, who is in Heaven, directed one of my cats to knock it over to let me know he was around. My best friend, Michele, who is also in Heaven, had come through during the reading with a brief shout-out from my dad. This was his way of letting me know that even though he did not come through fully that evening, he is still around and sending his love.

Exploring the Natural World

If you are having a difficult time finding a spiritual meaning for an animal, look up the habitats and behaviors of the animal for clues about the message they are attempting to convey. For example, a skunk is a gentle and shy animal which digs burrows and emits an odoriferous spray as a defense mechanism. The presence of a skunk in your life may indicate that you or someone you know is on the defensive and possibly digging in their heels regarding an altercation. Knowing this may help you to recognize when to give yourself or someone else some room to cool down before attempting to resolve a situation.

Animals are Amazing

Animals are amazing creatures that help us in so many ways here on Earth. When you are hugging and loving your pets, know they, too, are sharing their love with you. They appreciate all you do for them. You do not need to be a spirit medium to convey your love. Pay attention to their needs through behaviors, notice the toys and food they prefer, and most of all, continue to show your appreciation for their presence in your life with loving attention.

Pay attention to the animals that make an appearance in your life, as they may be messengers from Heaven trying to help you with your life.

Namaste!
