The Phenomenon of Objects Lost, Found, or Moved by Beings in Spirit

Spiritual BeingHave you ever had a beloved object disappear then reappear in an unusual location? Have you experienced photographs and artwork tilted on walls, knocked over on tabletops, or even fallen off of the wall?

As strange as it may seem, beings in spirit, including our loved ones in spirit, have the ability to move and manipulate objects on earth. They even have the ability to remove objects from the earth plane and take them to another dimension. Most of the time, the objects are returned around the same location from which they were borrowed or they are placed in our path in an extraordinary way.

How Do Spirits Move Objects?

Everything in existence is made of energy. The ability to move and manipulate objects on earth from another dimension is performed through the altering of energy. A relatable way of thinking of this is from the movie, “Ghost,” in which Patrick Swayze’s character in spirit pushes an object using an intense concentration of his energies. It is not quite like that for beings in spirit, but acts as an example of how they can move objects. Manipulating energy takes practice for our loved ones in spirit. They can learn how to do that, as well as how to manipulate energy to send various other signs of their presence, including but not limited to, placing objects in front of you that remind you of them, scents in the air, a strong feeling of their presence, and much more.

Why Do Spirits Move Objects?

Why do loved ones in spirit move or manipulate objects on earth? What is the purpose for doing this? In Heaven, anything is possible. Our loved ones in spirit enjoy many pleasant activities; however, two of their favorite activities are to give us proof of their existence beyond life on earth and to help us navigate our lives. They know how challenging life can be on earth and, through their love for us, want to help us to expand our knowledge and spiritual growth by giving proof of their existence through extraordinary experiences that have no explanation other than divine intervention. Our loved ones in spirit want to us know there is more to life than what appears to be. One of the ways they get our attention is through their ability to move or manipulate objects on earth.

There are cases in which a beloved object owned by a loved one in spirit disappears and cannot be found. Sometimes the connection with those objects is so strong that loved ones in spirit take them with them when they cross over or take them to another dimension at a later time. They do not mean to upset you when they do this. Again, it is their strong connection which drives them to bring it up to Heaven with them. The items may be returned at a later date, as was the case with a woman who found her mother’s wedding ring on her front lawn ten years after her mother passed. Jewelry tends to be the objects most frequently moved. This may be because of the amount of personal energy stored within the jewelry due to the amount of time spent wearing particular objects and sentimental value.

Personal Cases of Missing Jewelry

Many years ago, I was upset because I could not find two rings that were given to me as gifts by my brother and his girlfriend. They were the first real rings I had ever owned and I thought it was my carelessness that caused me to misplace them. I even wrote about it in the journal I kept, notating the date and my upset with the loss. Exactly six months to the day that I lost the rings and one month from the day that I was moving to a new home, the rings were found resting on a white carpet in the middle of the doorway to my mother’s bedroom. My mom was in her room at the time and I asked her if she had had them sitting on the antique sewing machine which was right next to the door. I could not fathom how they had arrived in the location they did and my only logical thought was that she had them and they were knocked off the sewing machine table onto the floor. My mom stated that she did not have them at any time. She knew I had lost them and stated she would have told me if she found them. As we stared in awe at the rings sparkling on the floor, I had the impression it was the woman in spirit who used to own my mother’s home who borrowed my rings. At the time, no explanation was given from her as to why she borrowed them, but they came back to me sparkling clean, and ready for me to take them to my new home.

Another example of jewelry borrowing happened when I was standing in front of my four-foot tall dresser taking my jewelry off after getting home from an event. As I removed one of my earrings, it fell from my hand, hit my shoe and bounced off. I heard and felt the earring hit the top of my shoe. I had the immediate impression that the earring was no longer on the earth plane; that it had been borrowed as had happened to other pieces in the past. Even so, I looked for it on the floor and could not find it. Two weeks later, I opened up the second drawer of the dresser to find a pair of socks. As I reached in, I heard something scraping the bottom of the drawer as I moved the socks to find the pair I wanted. As I moved them aside, I found the earring that had disappeared. There is no logical way the earring bounced up three feet off the toe of my shoe and into a closed drawer. When I asked who in spirit was responsible for the borrowing of my jewelry, the impression I received was from my mischievous best friend, Al. He likes to have a little fun with me and this was his way of getting my attention.

Other Ways Spirit Moves Objects

While jewelry seems to be a favorite object to borrow or move, loved ones in spirit have the capability to move or manipulate any objects. My dad loves to tilt pictures and even knocked over a small painting of my sister and me. My best friend, Al, used to love changing the time on a battery-powered clock I owned. All in all, there is no limit to what they can do; however, it is good to keep in mind that they move or borrow objects mainly to gain our attention in order to let us know they are around. All actions they take come from a place of love as there is no negativity in Heaven.

What Experiences Have You Had?

Have you experienced any instances of objects being moved, lost, or lost and returned under mysterious circumstances? I would love to hear about your experiences. If you feel inclined to share, please add your story to the comments section below.

Namaste!

The Archangels and their Divine Responsibilities

Each one of us has a Heavenly Support Team which is made up of God, the Archangels, past spiritual masters (highly spiritual beings who walked the Earth), spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit. All of these beings hear your prayers which are sent through the invisible network at heart of our spirits which connects us with all beings. When praying, many appeal to our Creator, God, with prayers first and foremost. When calling on specific Archangels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit to help, we are asking God’s appointed specialists and volunteers to assist us directly through the gifts bestowed upon them by God to act as an advocate on our behalf for the delivery and answering of our prayers.

The Archangels have been given the monumental task of managing life on Earth, including the creation and facilitation of soul contracts, life paths, the spiritual development of souls, order within the natural world, and much more. Each Archangel has a different area of expertise which works in conjunction with all of the other Archangels to ensure the best possible journeys for all on Earth while working in tandem with Heaven and God’s plans.

The Archangels Assist Humankind

There are many orders of angels. The Archangels, by special appointment by God, have been tasked with the helping of humanity as we journey through our lives on Earth. Each one has specific areas of concentration and can be called upon at any time for assistance. The Archangels do not tire and can be in more than one place at a time. They like us to call on them for help, for it is within the asking that we acknowledge their presence and can attribute the miracles we experience to their loving assistance and God’s hand.

While it is comforting to have a formal prayer to request assistance, it is not necessary. When I ask for help, I speak to the Archangels as I would with my best friends, in a conversational tone. It is important to note that the way the Archangels appear to me may be slightly different for each person with regard to the colors of the energies, what they are holding, and the form of the animal spirit. Your personal experiences with the Angels and how they appear to you can be a very unique experience which is dependent upon your personal symbols and databank of experiences. Archangels can appear to you with either male or female attributes. As beings in spirit, there is no set gender and, therefore, will come to you in the form with which you are most comfortable. The list below includes some of the more well-known Archangels, including brief explanations of their areas of expertise and what you can call on them for, as well as how they appear to me in energetic form, relatable visual images seen through my gifts of clairvoyance (aka., extrasensory seeing), and symbolic animal forms.

Archangel Michael – The Great Defender and Protector

Of all the Archangels, Michael is the head of this order. He is often depicted with sword in hand. He appears to me as bright and shimmering golden energy (this color is associated with the higher heavenly energy chakras located well above the head), as an image of a brilliant golden wing, in human form dressed in white with wings and carrying a sword or glowing with a gold aura, and in the form of birds of prey, such as falcons and hawks. He is the Great Defender of all that is good. He can be called upon for strength and courage, as well as protection. He often appears to let you know you are protected and loved. His presence is reassuring and powerful. In healing situations, he is there to strengthen the determination to heal, provide positive energy through love, and encourage the continual search for truth within the depths of your soul. His healing extends to all aspects of the mind, body, and spirit, including healing from the loss of a loved one, addictions, physical ailments, depression, the restoration of faith, and assistance with the cutting of relationship cords. Archangel Michael is also the protector of those who work within the light of God.

Archangel Raphael – The Divine Healer of Physical Ailments

This amazing Archangel has been tasked with the healing of humankind on every level, but especially for the healing of the physical bodies of all living creatures. Raphael appears to me as deep royal blue energy (this color is associated with the third-eye chakra located on the forehead between the eyebrows), in human form dressed in white with wings and hands held at chest-level facing outward to bring healing or with a stunning azure blue aura, and in the form of a wolf or deer. The nurturing energies of the wolf as it cares for its young, as well as its strong loyalty and fierce protectiveness are combined to help with the healing process. Archangel Raphael may appear in the form of a deer as a sign of reassurance regarding healing and as a reminder to be gentle with the self and others as you go through the healing process. Call on Archangel Raphael when you or those that you love are in need of healing of the physical body.

Archangel Azrael – The Benevolent Transformer of Mental and Emotional Anxieties

A tower of strength, this Archangel’s responsibilities include helping us to heal from the loss of a loved one, as well as from depression and illnesses which affect our mental and emotional systems. Archangel Azrael also helps those in the process of transitioning from life on Earth to an existence in Heaven. This Archangel appears to me as bright red energy, which is associated with the root chakra at the base of our spines. Red is a grounding energy which helps us to be at home here on Earth. Archangel Azrael also appears to me in human form dressed in white holding a red, glowing heart symbolizing the love employed with healing, and as a reminder of our connection with one another through unconditional love. Doves are another form Archangel Azrael takes as they are signs of peace and carry with them the reminder to be at peace with yourself and your circumstances. When calling on Archangel Azrael for assistance with stressful situations, addictions, grief, depression and mental or emotional illnesses, the person on the receiving end of the assistance may experience an unusual state of calm which settles over them. It is not a euphoric feeling, but rather one of stability and inner stillness because Azrael is preventing the negative voice of the human ego from penetrating and taking over the thoughts of the recipient.

Archangel Uriel – The Divine Pillar of Solitary Strength

A symbol of the wizened hermit, this Archangel assists with feelings of loneliness which may threaten to overwhelm from time to time. Archangel Uriel appears to me as light blue energy (this color is associated with the throat chakra for speaking our truths) or deep ochre or mustard-colored energy, which is associated with the solar plexus chakra located in the area of the stomach and administrates intuition and psychic energy. This Archangel also appears in human form with wings and dressed in white carrying a lantern to light the way or in the animal form of a blue jay or blue bird. Archangel Uriel helps us to learn how to be alone without being lonely, how to appreciate our own company, and how to delve within our spirits to reveal the mysteries of our existence. Any time you or someone you love is experiencing sadness due to loneliness, call on Archangel Uriel to help to see the wonders that exist within your soul or the soul for whom you are praying. Moreover, you can call on Archangel Uriel to explore the mysteries of the universe. Answers will be delivered through spirit communication, automatic writing, meditation journeys, and epiphanies. When this Archangel appears to you in the form of a blue bird or blue jay, it is to provide a reminder to be mindful of your path and that your current thought pattern may contain faulty information. Examine what you were thinking of when you see a blue jay or blue bird to determine if Archangel Uriel was trying to help you to see another side of a situation in order to steer you toward a more positive outcome. Seeing the blue bird or blue jay may also provide a heads up about a potentially negative situation that will appear. This is does not mean a dire situation is about to occur, but rather one in which learning will be required. The heads up provides you an opportunity to be ready to accept whatever comes, knowing the issue is only temporary.

Archangel Chamuel – The Divine Benefactor of Unconditional Love

This is the Archangel of unconditional love and self-love. Archangel Chamuel appears to me in energy form as soft green or pink energy filled with love (these colors are associated with the heart chakra), in human form with wings and dressed in pink or green robes with hands placed over the heart, and in the form of a rabbit or hare. The energy of the rabbit is a reminder of gentle love and warmth. Rabbits create burrows in the Earth to house themselves and their families. Grouped together, they snuggle for warmth and care for one another when storms rage overhead. In this manner, Archangel Chamuel brings us great warmth within our hearts and encourages us to reach out to others with love and caring, as well as to provide caring for ourselves. The healing this Archangel brings centers around the heart chakra and the healing of emotional issues surrounding relationships with ourselves and others. Call on Archangel Chamuel for help with loving and appreciating who you are, as well as for help with all relationships in your life.

Archangel Haniel – The Divine Healer of Families and Relationships

The healing of family bonds and relationships is the specialty of this Archangel. Appearing to me energetically as pale blue energy (this color is associated with the throat chakra which is important for communications), in human form with wings and dressed in light blue with a gold chained necklace symbolizing how we are linked to one another, and in the form of a turtle. The energy of the turtle highlights relationships, as well as the healing of issues of abandonment. Call on Archangel Haniel to help mend relationships within your family of birth, adopted family members including friends who have become family, children, and romantic relationships. The healing process of Archangel Haniel is a gentle one. It centers on communication by encouraging the exchange of open dialog in which both parties exchange thoughts and feelings in ways that can be heard and accepted by you and others.

Archangel Gabriel – The Great Messenger

This Archangel has been tasked with the creation of ideas and creativity, belief in oneself and one’s goals, and is known as the Great Messenger. Archangel Gabriel appears to me energetically as vibrant violet energy (this color is associated with the crown chakra at the top of the head through which spirit communication flows), in human form with wings and dressed in white while holding the golden horn, and in the form of a crow, raven, or lion. The energy of the crow and the raven focus on messages from the Other Side. Archangel Gabriel acts as a muse to share inspirational messages to those on Earth to stimulate progress and bring new ideas into being. With that energy comes a strong belief in the self to carry out the objectives and goals to completion. Spiritual openness and the ability to utilize the simplicity, trust, and innocence we experience as children are areas in which Archangel Gabriel assists. Call on Archangel Gabriel for help with ideas, inspiration in creative pursuits, and the energy, opportunities, and resources to complete projects. The energy of the lion, which symbolizes the strength, determination and playfulness brought to us by Archangel Gabriel, helps us with our goals while reminding us to take a rest when needed to restore the mind, body, and spirit to full capacity.

Archangel Ariel – The Great Earth Mother

As the Archangel who oversees the planet Earth and all of its creatures, Archangel Ariel emphasizes the natural world and its incredible healing powers. The Earth, which provides everything we need to survive on a physical level, is vital to our human existence. Archangel Ariel’s restorative powers and emphasis on the cycles and rhythms of all life, assist us with graceful acceptance of life and death, of love and loss, and brings us the positive energies associated with new beginnings and balance. This Archangel appears to me energetically as light purple energy mixed with pink (these colors are associated with the crown and heart chakras that must remain in balance as we make our way through life), in human form with wings and dressed in earth-toned colors and surrounded by trees and multiple animals, and in the form of swans, geese, and ducks. The energy of aquatic birds symbolizes the emotional nature of the soul, as well as the deep peace that can be attained by gliding through life with deep trust in the path you have chosen for yourself. Call on Archangel Ariel to help with prevention and recovery of natural disasters, to assist with the thriving growth and good health of animals and plants, and bring peace to your life through natural means.

Archangel Metatron – The Great Instigator of Powerful Change

A powerful initiator of change, Archangel Metatron orchestrates events on Earth with a magical touch. Miraculous events, transformations, and spirit-to-spirit communications are the areas Archangel Metatron is passionate about. This Archangel appears to me in energetic form as shimmering deep violet and silver energies (these colors are associated with the crown chakra and the higher heavenly energy chakras located well above the head), in human form with wings and dressed in violet and silver while holding a spinning cube, and in the form of the butterfly or the majestic eagles and condors. The energy of the butterfly is one of transformation and swift change, which are brought about by calling on Archangel Metatron. The energies of the eagles and condors symbolize sharp attention to detail while also keeping an eye on the larger scope of events. Call on Archangel Metatron to clear your mind of unnecessary clutter in order to pinpoint your focus on what is truly important, to bring about positive changes with lightning speed, and bring miracles to your life.

Archangel Zadkiel – The Divine Guide of Life Paths and Sexuality

This hardworking Archangel assists with issues surrounding forgiveness and all forms of abuse, as well as occupations and productive use of time. Archangel Zadkiel appears to me as vibrant orange energy (this color is associated with the sacral chakra located two inches below the navel and is the seat of earthly experiences, including sexuality and occupations), in human form with wings and dressed in khaki robes  and a tool in hand, and in the form of beavers and otters. The energies of the beaver represent hard work while the energies of the otter are reminders to take time out to play. Call on Archangel Zadkiel for assistance with working through strong negative feelings and experiences in order to come to a place of forgiveness of the self and others, for healing from situations of abuse, for issues surrounding sexuality, when looking for a job best suited for your skills and life path, and when you are in need of establishing a better work/life balance.

Archangel Jeremiel – The Divine Deliverer of Mercy and Grace

Amazing mercy, grace, and justice is the primary focus of this Archangel. Appearing to me energetically as shimmering deep emerald green and gold energies (these colors represent the heart and higher heavenly energy chakras located well above the head), Archangel Jeremiel provides a spiritual cleansing of our souls through the provision of mercy, increased faith, and an easing of troublesome situations. When appearing in my third-eye in human form, this Archangel appears with wings wearing deep emerald robes shimmering with gold and silver ornamentation. In animal form, Archangel Jeremiel shows symbolic representation through large felines, such as the cheetah, leopard, and pumas, who defend their territories, use quick bursts of speed and agility to accomplish goals, and move with great confidence on the Earth. Archangel Jeremiel may also appear in the form of the owl, known for its wisdom, attention to detail, and excellent sight and hearing. Calling on this Archangel brings swift transformation of painful situations while also providing an interlude to gather ones’ resources for any pending battles. This is especially true for pending lawsuits and legal issues. The meting out of justice in a way that benefits all parties, whether through lessons or mercy, is overseen by Archangel Jeremiel.

Archangel Jophiel – The Great Giver of Joy

Presenting as deep fuchsia energy swirled with lighter pinks (these colors represent the emotional portions of the heart chakra) in energetic form, Archangel Jophiel is the angel of joy and positive transformations. When this Archangel appears in human form, it is with wings and fine robes of deep and light pink with a jeweled scepter in hand. In animal form, Archangel Jophiel appears as a heron, which is symbolic of soaring to great heights and living life in a unique way by listening within. Archangel Jophiel provides assistance with refocusing on positive experiences of life, encouraging inner journeys which lead to the discovery of soul-specific solutions for your life’s passions, and raising your energy levels and thoughts toward the light to inspire the giving and receiving of unconditional love. The keen intelligence, playfulness, and communal relationships of the dolphins are additional animal energies which represent Archangel Jophiel. Call on Archangel Ariel whenever you are in need of a boost of strong positive energy.

Archangel Raguel – The Divine Peacekeeper of Synchronicity

This Archangel is tasked with the role of peacemaker for those on Earth and in Heaven. Archangel Raguel has the unique position of maintaining balance and harmony while managing the real time facilitation of events related to our soul contracts. For every action, there is a reaction which affects the paths of our lives. Appearing in energetic form as illuminated medium brown energy interspersed with gold hues (these colors represent the warm and friendly energies of the Earth chakra located below the feet and the higher heavenly energy chakras located above the head), Archangel Raguel reminds us that we are here to help one another on our journeys through life. This Archangel also coordinates with all of the other Archangels to ensure the synchronicity of their collective services to humanity and the natural world. In human form, Raquel appears with wings in flowing white robes and a large book in hand. The book represents the Akashic records stored within the Hall of Records, which contain all of the information about what was, is, and will be for each being in existence. This Archangel appears in animal form as the mouse, groundhog, opossum, skunk, and raccoon, all of which reside out of site from humans. The energy of the mouse is quiet productivity of the multitudes, while the groundhog digs deeper for answers and represents the world of dreams, the opossum represents family nurturing, and the skunk and raccoon represent the cleanup crew. Bees and ants are also symbolic of this Archangel, as they represent working together in harmony, with each member of the hive or hill following through with important tasks down to the last detail.  When faced with situations that seem out of sync, call on Archangel Raguel to restore order and balance through peaceful means. You can also appeal to Archangel Raguel for changes to your soul contracts, help with teamwork or group situations, assistance with creating a harmonious environment in your home and at your place of work, and the opportunity to explore the Hall of Records through meditation and visions.

Archangel Raziel – The Divine Keeper of Mysteries

As the gatekeeper of divine information, Archangel Raziel governs the veil between the worlds of Heaven and Earth, the subconscious, dreams, and the gifts of mediumship, also known as spirit-to-spirit communication or spirit communication. This Archangel appears to me in energetic form as brilliant white energy interspersed with radiant rainbows of color (these colors represent the energy of Heaven, as well as all of the combined energy centers of the soul). In human form, Archangel Raziel emanates incredible white light while holding aloft a blazing ring in the shape of a figure eight (also referred to as an infinity ring) representing the infinite existence of our souls. Call on this Archangel when you are searching for answers about the mysteries and inner workings of the universe, when you need help with the interpretation of dreams, and when you need assistance or are ready to work with the higher energies of Heaven through spirit communication. In animal form, Archangel Raziel appears as birds with white feathers, which represents the beauty and purity of the unconditional love from which we were created. Additionally, this Archangel symbolically appears in the form of fish, representing the fluidity of divine communications, situations of divine emotional importance, and the surreal world of dreams.

Archangel Sandalphon – The Divine Nurturer

Music in Heaven and on Earth, as well as the sending and receiving of prayers, are the specialties of this Archangel. Appearing as light beige energy swirled with pink and light green (these colors represent the warm and friendly energies of the Earth chakra located below the feet and the heart chakra), Archangel Sandalphon nurtures our souls with music and is responsible for auditory communications between Heaven and Earth, including prayers and clairaudient (extrasensory hearing) spirit communications. In human form, Archangel Sandalphon appears with wings in robes of white and carrying a glowing golden harp. In animal form, this Archangel symbolically appears as frogs, crickets, cicadas, birds, and other animals and insects that sing and make unique melodic sounds. You can call on Archangel Sandalphon when you need assistance with the creation of music, greater clarity and understanding with communication, sleep and relaxation issues, anxiety, meditation, and the swift delivery of prayers through this special advocate. Archangel Sandalphon calms the soul, encourages smooth communications spoken from the heart of the spirit, and dutifully keeps track of all of the prayers you send to Heaven with an emphasis on those in need of special attention. Working in tandem with the Akashic Records of all that was, is, and will be for your soul, Archangel Sandalphon reviews your life path when prayers are received to determine the most beneficial ways to answer them.

Archangel Barachiel – The Divine Facilitator of Miraculous Occurrences

This Archangel loves to boost your confidence and morale. Archangel Barachiel helps you to maintain a positive outlook and has been given the task of facilitating miracles on Earth. Appearing in energetic form as pink, red, white, and silver energies (these colors are associated with the heart chakra and the energy of Heaven, as well as the higher heavenly energy chakras well above the head), Archangel Barachiel opens your mind, body, and spirit to the pure loving energies of Heaven. In human form, this Archangel appears with wings wearing flowing white and pink robes and holding a glowing white orb cupped between two hands. Ladybugs, dragonflies, hummingbirds, and butterflies are all favorite representations of Archangel Barachiel in animal form as they are bright, happy reminders of Heaven. Call on Archangel Barachiel when you are in need of miracles in your life, help with maintaining a positive outlook, assistance with a boost to your morale, and help letting go of circumstances from the past which have been dragging you down.

Many Orders of Angels

The Archangels listed above represent the most called upon angels in Heaven. There are many more Archangels, as well as orders of angels, in existence. All of them have specific jobs and areas of expertise to help with the inner workings of the universe. As for the ones listed in this article, they hope you call on them any time you are in need of assistance. They would love to hear from you, as well as help you navigate your life path in a way that brings you the most love, satisfaction, and beneficial outcomes.

Our Existence beyond Life on Earth

Spirit Medium Readings PAFears of Passing

Death, which can be one of the most feared aspects of our lives, is a transition into another form of existence in which our soul moves forth to another dimension. As a Spirit Medium, I am blessed with the ability to communicate across dimensions with all beings through spirit-to-spirit communication. Because of this, I have been given amazing insights into the continued existence of our souls, what happens in Heaven, the inner workings of our universe, and much more. As the information is revealed, I love to share it with you in order to help you and your loved ones to have a better understanding about our existence beyond life on Earth.

Lightness of the Soul

Everything around us is comprised of energy, including our physical bodies and our souls. When are no longer in need of our physical bodies here on Earth, the lighter energetic forms of our souls are released from our earthly housings. Because we are no longer limited or hampered by the dense energy of the physical form, we are free to travel to the next destination for our souls.

What Happens Next

When a person’s physical body expires on Earth, there are many events that take place to help us with the transition from having a physical existence on Earth to an existence in spirit in Heaven. Regardless of whether someone passes suddenly, such as from an accident or massive heart attack, or over a long period of time, such as from an illness, there is a delegation of one to three beings from the Other Side that act as guides to the transition process.

A Spiritual Delegation Arrives to Help with Your Transition

The delegation can be made of up loved ones in spirit who have already crossed over, including pets, or angels and past spiritual masters, who are highly spiritual beings who lived an impactful lifetime on Earth sharing divinity and bringing spiritual enlightenment to the world through love.

Events in the Moment

With a passing due to a long-term condition, the soul is usually aware that their time on Earth has come to an end. In the days and weeks leading up to his or her passing, loved ones in spirit often make their presence known through dreams or visions while awake. Those in the process of dying often hold conversations with their delegation guides who often share insights into Heaven, as well as the process of transitioning, in order to bring peace and understanding to the soul.

In the case of a sudden passing, there can be a wide range of emotions experienced by the recently deceased including upset, anger, and confusion. Delegation guides are there to help the person to understand their time on Earth has come to an end and to let them know their transition to Heaven has arrived. Initially, the soul may resist leaving, as they may be in denial about their passing, are concerned about loved ones left behind, or feel they are not done with their time on Earth. The delegation guides do their best to provide comfort, understanding, and information to help the soul to accept the ending of their time on Earth and the beginning of their transition to the next dimension.

With regard to those who purposefully ended their lives, the delegation is there for them, too. All souls go to Heaven; however, there can be a delay caused by the soul who believes they do not belong in Heaven because of their actions and what they have been taught on Earth by various religious beliefs. The soul needs to know it is worthy of transitioning to Heaven before it crosses over. They do receive help from the delegation guides which, in this case, are usually higher beings, also referred to as angels.

The Gateway Appears

When the soul is ready to make its transition, a gateway filled with brilliant white light opens. When I see this light, it is so bright it is painful to look at. It is because my time has not yet arrived to cross through the gateway. For those who are ready to cross, the light is brilliant and warm, and welcomes the soul with great waves of love. Through information shared with me from people in spirit and my own quest for divine knowledge, it has been revealed that the soul, once it steps through the gateway, travels through the portal on a most personal journey. The delegation guides lead the soul to the portal but do not go through the transition process with them. It is because it is a private journey in which the soul is provided with highlights of positive events throughout their life on Earth and are provided with instructions for their arrival in Heaven. The experience can also include one-on-one time with our Creator. The transition process through what is commonly referred to as “The Tunnel,” is unique to each individual and can take several hours Earth time to complete.

Heavenly Arrival

Once a soul has arrived in Heaven, the delegation guides, official greeters, and select loved ones who have already crossed over into Heaven are there to welcome the soul with a loving reunion. Shortly after the soul’s arrival, there is a grand homecoming celebration held in honor of the soul in which all loved ones in spirit attend, including beloved pets in spirit. People on the Other Side often show me themselves dressed in stunning white formal wear for the gala event, including tuxedos with tails, gorgeous gowns, and other glamorous outfits befitting the wearers. All are smiling and having a wonderful time as they celebrate and honor the soul of the loved one newly arrived in Heaven.

For those who have purposefully taken their lives, there is a slightly different process that occurs. Instead of a large celebration, the soul is reunited with loved ones who have crossed before them, then they go to the Spiritual Hospital, which is like a mental health hospital that is attended to by specific orders of angels, in which they begin the process of healing their soul for the pain they endured in life, as well as for the soul-wrenching experience of ending his or her life prior to plans that were determined before he or she was born. Because there is no equivalent time measure for Heaven, the best estimate I have received for the amount of time a loved one in spirit is in the Spiritual Hospital ranges from two weeks to six months Earth time. It all depends on the soul and the healing they need. Like a mental health hospital, visitors are welcome and outpatient care is available when the soul is ready. Once healing has taken place, a more subdued and intimate reunion party is held to honor the soul. As a consequence of purposefully ending life on Earth prior to the agreed upon timeframe, the soul must return for another lifetime to redo and complete the lessons left unlearned. This does not usually happen immediately, but after healing has taken place, skills have been learned to better manage the lessons, and other loved ones have naturally completed their lifetimes and reunited with the soul in Heaven.

Visiting Hours with Family and Friends

It is interesting to note that our recently departed loved ones do visit us soon after their passing. They can send us signs letting us know they are okay and have made it to Heaven. They are often accompanied by other loved ones in spirit who have crossed over before them. Those loved ones in spirit help with the process of sending signs and giving comfort to those of us still on Earth, while also supporting the newly arrived soul. In addition, the newly arrived souls are often in attendance for their own memorial services, including those who have purposefully taken their lives. Once the services have concluded, the souls then move forward to the next phase of their transition, which is the objective review of their lives on Earth.

Judgment Day is Not a Condemnation, But an Objective Review

What some refer to as “Judgment Day” is not a terrifying experience in which you are made to account for all of the wrongs you committed on Earth, but rather an objective review of your soul contracts and whether you learned the lessons you agreed to prior to your birth. One of the most important questions we are asked is, “How Have You Loved?” It is asked in the context of not only how you have loved others, but also yourself. The significance of this question, as well as the way it was revealed to me through a powerful visionary experience, prompted me to immediately decide it would be the title of my first book. Love, and learning how to love, is one of our main reasons for being. Those who have caused pain to themselves and others during their lifetimes, often go to the Spiritual Hospital for healing. Once there, they learn about how and why events occurred and receive assistance to help their souls to accept accountability, including how to cope with the results of their actions. Every soul has a purpose on this Earth, whether they are younger souls learning through trial and error how love is our reason for being or older souls who already know love is the primary reason for our existence. We are all here to assist one another on the spiritual journey our souls take as human beings.

Enjoying the Heavenly Surroundings

Throughout the review process and beyond, we are free to enjoy Heaven by creating beautiful spaces for ourselves, learning new skills including how to watch over and communicate with loved ones on Earth, and much, much more. Often, we decide to look like we did on Earth because we are used to that form of ourselves, and we are usually the younger versions of ourselves. This is the same for the pets that come through in spirit. I usually see them around the age of two or three when they were in their prime.

Serving an Important Purpose

It is comforting to know we continue on in spirit beyond life on Earth, and that the experience of transitioning from this world to the next is one in which we are enveloped in love and surrounded by an amazing delegation of our loved ones in spirit who have already crossed over, the angels, and past spiritual masters. Even though death is only a transition to the next world, it is important to remember we are meant to be here on Earth to complete the lessons we set out to do. When our natural time to cross over comes, it is good to know we will not be alone and that another, more peaceful chapter awaits our souls.

Namaste!

When Pets Cross Over into Heaven

Shadow_2012

Shadow (2012)

Animals, especially our pets, have a special place in many of our hearts. The unconditional love they share with us is a model for how we can love one another. Anyone who has fallen in love with their pet knows they give so much love and gratitude for our companionship and care. When it comes time for them to cross over into heaven, it is a loss that is felt deeply by all in the household, including other pets.

Surrounded by Loving Beings

When the time comes for our beloved animal companions to cross over to the Other Side, it can be a very emotional and heartbreaking time. It is comforting to know that our pets, just like human beings, are surrounded by spirit guides, loved ones in spirit, and the angels during their transition to heaven. Recently, when my cat, Shadow, passed, I asked the angels to show me his journey in order to share with you what happens when our pets cross over into heaven.

Spirit Guides Ease Their Transition

When Shadow passed, his spirit guides were there to show him the way to heaven. As with people, the guides are unique to the animal. Each being is born with a spirit guide who remains with them for their time on earth, and animals are no different. When pets cross over, their personal spirit guide is there, as well as deceased loved ones who knew them (people and animals), angels, past spiritual masters, and even God. The guides are there to inform them that their physical body has expired, indicating it is time to cross over into heaven. The pull of love is strong on earth, especially if there were deep bonds formed with their companion family. The guides gently let them know it is time to move on to heaven, and that they will never truly be separated from their earthly companions because the love they share will keep them connected. They let them know that, once they have crossed, they can visit in spirit with their loved ones on earth to give them comfort and signs that they are around. Like people, pets can be scared of being separated from loved ones and the life they knew; however, the angels bring peace to their hearts and minds, easing their transition.

Time for Orientation

In the same way that people have an orientation to heaven, animals are also given an introduction and an educational session about heaven. They learn about their new home, as well as what they can do while they are there, including how they can communicate and help their loved ones on earth. They are reunited with loved ones who have crossed over before them, including animal parents and siblings, as well as people who knew them and loved them. The angels, guides, and deceased loved ones often volunteer to watch over them as they await the arrival of their companion family on earth.

Grief Transformed Through Understanding

As with those of us on earth, our beloved pets do experience some sorrow during their transition to heaven. It is natural to feel a sense of loss for the life and companions they knew on earth; however, the grief does not last like it does on earth because the abundant peace and love of heaven embraces them. In addition, they are given the gift of knowledge and enlightenment that allows them to better understand the workings of the universe and their role in it. Any pain they felt in life disappears, and they are transformed into younger and healthier versions of themselves. They are free to run and play, make new friends, roll in the softest spring green grass, and curl up in the warmth of the sun with loved ones.

Visiting Loved Ones on Earth

Kitten bottle feeding

Shadow holding his own bottle. (September 2000)

After their initial period of transition has been completed and grief over your loss has eased, your pets will visit you on earth. You may catch a glimpse of them out of the corner of your eye or see images that remind you of them, you may feel them curled up next to you on the couch or bed, and you may also hear the joyful sounds they used to make just for you. When animals communicate with me both here and from the Other Side, it is very similar to the way human loved ones in spirit communicate with me. They use all of my senses to transmit their messages, and the thought impressions I receive are translated into a spoken language I understand. When they communicate with you, you may receive signs and messages through images, sounds, feelings, smells, and more. It is not a coincidence that the day after Shadow passed a video popped up on one of my social media newsfeeds of a very young kitten holding its own bottle as it was being fed kitten replacement milk. When I adopted Shadow into my heart almost fifteen years ago, he was only two weeks old. Because he was abandoned by his natural mother at such a young age, he needed to be bottle-fed kitten replacement milk. I thought it was adorable how Shadow would hold his kitten-sized bottle with his paws. On an interesting side note, all kittens and puppies are born with brilliant blue eyes, just like human babies. If an extremely young animal comes under your care, you should take it to the veterinarian as soon as possible. They have very special needs, ones that you would not even think about, that need to be immediately addressed.

Love Connection

Our beloved pets and companions leave impressions of their love on our hearts. The relationships we build and nurture on earth with all beings creates a bond that cannot be broken with the expiration of our physical bodies. Love is the strongest energy in the universe. It is the ultimate power that links each and every one of us together. It is the spark of life that created our souls, and when we find others whose spark grows and expands within each other’s company, we know we have found our soulmates, our twin flames, and our spiritual family.

Blessings and love to you and yours. May your soul be eased with the love of the angels.

In Memoriam of Shadow

Shadow_August 3, 2015In memory of my sweet and loving Shadow, who will always be my hero, loving companion, and special boy. Rest in peace and enjoy your time in heaven. Thank you for 15 glorious years of love on earth.

September 3, 2000 – August 3, 2015

 

Spirit Medium Readings: A Two-Part Process

Spirit Medium Karen T. HluchanWhen you sit for a spirit medium reading with me, there are two parts to the reading for each loved one in spirit who comes through. The first part of the reading involves identifying the loved one coming through, and the second part of the reading involves the sharing of his or her personal message for you. It is very important to identify who is there in spirit before sharing the message, because who it is coming from is as important as the message itself. Without knowing the identity of the message sender, some messages would make little to no sense to the receiver.

How Information is Transmitted
When spiritual beings communicate with me, they utilize all of my senses—sight, hearing, touch, smell, taste, and inner-knowing (the sixth sense)—for mind to mind communication. Instead of processing information that is picked up by the senses and sent to the brain from outside of myself, I need to focus within to pick up on the information that is being transferred to me from your loved ones in spirit. The process is much more complex than just sitting down and talking with someone. Spiritual beings no longer inhabit a physical body and, therefore, must use their minds and other energetic means to communicate across dimensions. It is an abstract form of communication that requires absolute trust, openness, and receptivity from me, openness and receptivity from you, and clarity and loving strength from your loved ones in spirit.

Confidentiality and Ethics
As a spirit medium, it is my job to clearly relay the information I am receiving in an ethical, honest, and responsible way. It is a great honor to be able to serve you and all spiritual beings through my gifts, and I treat each communication that I receive and share with the reverence it deserves. Because of the very private information that is shared in a reading, I also take your confidentiality very seriously. While, in a teaching setting, I may give examples of certain communications that come through in a reading, I do not disclose names or identities. Private information remains private. This even holds true for my own family members. When I provide a reading, the information remains confidential. It is up to the person sitting for the reading to share what he or she wants to divulge with others.

Part One: Validating the Identity of the Communicator

Questions and Responses
When giving a reading, I have a set of questions that I ask your loved ones in spirit when you and I are working together to identify them. The questions are basic in the beginning, and then they become more in-depth as we go deeper into the validation process. For instance, I ask “Are you male or female?” and “What did you look like?” In response, I receive warmth on the right or left side of my body to indicate male or female, and I am sent an image of your loved one which usually shows what they looked like close to the time of their passing, as you would remember them best, or as they would like to be remembered. The image that they send not only shows me how they looked, but also may give me keys to understanding your loved one’s personality and identity, as well as the relationship they have with you. For instance, when a man comes through wearing red or maroon, this indicates to me that he is a father figure to you. If he is wearing a flannel shirt, it indicates that he may have been more of the outdoorsy type who preferred to spend time outside more than inside. At the same time, he may be creating a tingling sensation in both my hands and sending me an image of a machine shop, indicating that he worked with his hands using the machinery that I am seeing.

Identifying the Communicator
As the information is transmitted, I share it with you, the sitter. When I have gathered enough specific information that could help you to identify a loved one, I will ask whether this person or animal (pets do come through!) sounds familiar to you. The best answer you can give is yes, no, or I don’t know. If the person sounds familiar, but you are not quite sure of who it is, please state that. More information will be brought forth to help you identify them. If you say no and continue to do so as more information is brought forth, I will have to ask your loved one to step aside, and a message from that particular loved one will not be shared. It is important to note that when loved ones come through in a reading, they are yours. They are not mine, nor are they random beings popping in to intrude on your reading. They could be a deceased friend, family member, a pet of yours or of someone you know or knew, neighbor, in-law, acquaintance, or co-worker. It could be a great grandmother that you never met, but who knows you from seeing you from heaven. If this is the case, there may be records, photographs, and people still living that may be able to help you confirm the identity of the person coming through.

My best advice is to keep an open mind. You never know who is going to come through in a reading, nor do you know how they are going to come through, or what messages they will share with you. Remember, they are coming through with information from their point of view, not yours, and they also have the benefit of understanding more about life on earth now that they are in heaven.

Deeper into the Validation
As I am sharing information with you, I am, at the same time, asking for more information from your loved one in spirit about what he or she did for a living, and how he or she passed. You do not hear that part of the communication because I am asking those questions directly to your loved ones in spirit using my mind, not speaking them out loud. In addition to seeing what the communicator looked like, they will also send me symbols that mean something to you, and will help you to identify them. For example, as I was describing a father figure who was coming through, he sent me an image of a lemon. I asked the sitter if this meant something to her in relation to her father, and she replied that it did…her father used to eat lemons raw. This piece of information, in addition to the description of him and various other factors about his personality, what he did for a living, and how he passed, confirmed for her that it was indeed her father. He was well-known for eating this unique culinary delight. The symbols are unique for each individual, and are sent to help trigger your memories of them.

As I mentioned, all of my senses are utilized during a spirit medium reading, and your loved ones in spirit may be communicating with me utilizing several of them at the same time. This rapid overlapping of visions, sounds, tastes, smells, feelings, and knowingness creates a richer and more detailed communication that helps both you and me to identify and understand the messages that are being conveyed. For instance, when I am trying to identify how a person passed, I may be feeling a push like an impact in the region of my chest, seeing a car rolling over, and hearing the word “accident” all at the same time. This indicates to me that the person most likely passed due to an impact to the chest during a car accident.

Wanting to Hear from a Particular Loved One
If for some reason a loved one in spirit does not come through in a reading, it does not mean that they do not love you or want to communicate with you. There are many reasons why this might happen. For instance, other loved ones in spirit may want to share messages during a particular reading because the message coming from them would have a greater impact on your life. It may also be too soon to hear from someone in spirit. Even though contact can be made with loved ones who are recently passed, it is a good idea to give both them and you time to adjust to the transitions that have occurred. For those of us on earth, we need time to grieve. For those who have passed, they need time to reorient themselves to heaven. In most cases, it is good to wait at least two months before sitting for reading in which you hope to hear from a person who has passed. That said, when people ask to hear from a particular person I cannot guarantee that they will come through. I can ask them to join us for the reading; however, it is up to your loved one in spirit whether they come through at that time. Free will is a gift that is ours to keep, including after we cross over into heaven.

Let the Information Flow
Your loved ones in spirit do their best to convey information in a way that helps you to readily identify who they are in order to get to the heart of the reading, which is their personal message to you. One way to bog down this process is to continually interject questions such as, “What is their name?” or “If this is really my cousin, where did she go on vacation in 1972?” If it is appropriate for your loved ones in spirit to furnish this information in a reading, they will do so without prompting. They do not have time during a reading to give every minute detail of your life or theirs. They truly are doing their best to communicate. Some loved ones in spirit are more skilled than others at communicating with spirit mediums. Like any skill, it is knowledge that is learned, and some have had more practice at it than others.

Even though you may have a set idea in your mind about the information you would like to receive, it is important to know that I, as the spirit medium, receive only the information that is shared by your loved ones in spirit. He or she decides the type of information to be imparted, and this might not include preconceived notions of what you think they would share with you. Continually interjecting with questions has the potential to disrupt the flow of spirit-to-spirit communication, which requires a steady energetic connection and level of concentration that exceeds every day communications.

In my mind, I like to think of us as a team working together in harmony to transmit, receive, and share communications across the dimensions. By permitting communications to naturally flow from their spirit through mine to yours, you are allowing your loved ones in spirit to convey messages in the way they think is best, which will help you to get the most out of your reading. After you have identified your loved one in spirit and they have shared their messages with you, you can ask questions of them if you have them.

Part Two: Personal Messages for You

Sharing Knowledge, Love, and Guidance
Once the identity of your loved one in spirit has been established, it is time for part two of the communication process with your loved one in spirit – his or her personal messages for you. There is always an important reason for a loved one coming through in a reading. Often, they share messages of import regarding your life. This could be about events that occurred in the past, are occurring presently, or will occur in the future. Your loved ones in spirit watch over you from heaven, and they know what you are in need of with regard to your life. That said, what they share with you is not trivial. They have gone through a lot of effort to communicate across dimensions, and what they share could have a profound effect on your life and the evolution of your soul.

Messages of love, forgiveness, guidance, and more are shared with the hope that you, the sitter, will be open and receptive to the messages. For example, I have had loved ones in spirit come through asking for forgiveness for abusive treatment, neglect, or having a hard time sharing love. The forgiveness that he or she is asking for is not for the benefit of the communicator, but for the recipient of the reading. It may be imperative for the sitter to release all of the pent up negativity and resentment against this person in order to move on with his or her life, and begin to establish healthier relationships with others. Other times, loved ones come through to let a sitter know that they are, indeed, in heaven and at peace, and that his or her passing was meant to be. Each message that comes through is crafted with divine love, and gets to the heart of matters that are most important to the sitter from the viewpoint of heaven. It is up to the sitter whether he or she chooses to accept the information given, and to use it in a way that uplifts and improves his or her life.

Equally Important
Both parts of a spirit medium reading are equally important to you, the sitter. Validating the identity of the being coming through establishes the connection between you and your loved ones in spirit, and also provides the background context for the messages you are about to receive from them. The messages that come through from your loved ones in spirit contain invaluable pieces of information that come from the heart of their spirit to yours, and are divinely conceived and directed.

It is my hope that this article provided you with a more thorough understanding of how spirit communication works, as well as an appreciation for the complex process of communicating spirit-to-spirit. I also hope that it allows you to get the most out of your next spirit medium reading.

Namaste!
