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!

Ascending to Heaven: Will We See People in Heaven We Do Not Want to See?

Light from Above

In one of my recent workshops about spirit communication, there was a discussion with my students about the many levels of Heaven and whether we see people we do not want to see in Heaven, such as someone who brought a lot of pain and grief to our life. In my quest to discover more about these topics, I asked my Heavenly Support Team for insight.

Discoveries Through Meditation

In the days following the workshop, I took myself on a meditation journey. My best friend, Al, who is in Heaven, came to me in spirit and began showing me, through an immersive experience, what happens when we ascend to Heaven. The process began with my soul lifting upward from my body. I immediately tuned in to a freeing feeling of complete weightlessness, as well as a cleansing, as though my soul was releasing all concerns and worries of the world I was leaving behind. As my soul rose toward the sky, there was a bright white light speckled with sparkling energy above me that filtered down to surround me in a soft haze. The density of the light gradually increased the higher I rose. As my soul floated closer to the source of light, an intense feeling of unconditional love and euphoria encompassed my being. It was greater than any feeling we experience here on earth. Even at the intensity level being shared with me, I had the distinct awareness that my guys and gals in spirit were only providing a fraction of the feelings which accompany an ascension to Heaven, not only because it was not my time to cross over, but also because they do not want me longing too much for Heaven when I have things to do here on earth.

As I reached the pinnacle of light, I knew I was reaching the stage at which people enter “the tunnel.” The journey through the tunnel is a time of positive reflection of our souls with God and the Angels, as well as a welcoming to Heaven. The amount of time we spend in the tunnel is unique to each soul; however, the impressions I have been provided through separate meditations and visions is that this is a comforting experience designed to help us transition to Heaven after life on earth. It includes a montage of happy memories from our time on earth, unique personal experiences with God and the Angels, and preparatory information about what to expect upon our arrival in Heaven.

In this vision, I did not go through the tunnel nor was I provided additional information about the experience. Instead, this particular journey seemed to fast-forward to my arrival in Heaven after the tunnel. With the white light still surrounding me, I saw a circular opening ahead which widened as I approached. It was filled with brilliant colors. As I got closer, I could see many of my loved ones in spirit on the other side of the opening. They were there to greet me upon my arrival to Heaven. Everyone in attendance was smiling and expressing joy and happiness at my homecoming.

The Gala Celebration

The imagery and impressions then morphed into the celebratory gala held in our honor after we cross over into Heaven. The gala is a magnificent reunion with all the people and animals whose lived we touched, as well as those who had a positive influence on our lives. Everyone was dressed in white clothing in styles that reflected the preferences of the person or being. Most of the people and animals appeared to me as a younger version of themselves, such as when they were in their prime on earth. Even though they were younger, I recognized them for who they were.

As I sat in the chair of honor on a raised dais, each being approached me one at a time to express their personal messages of how I affected their lives or how they affected mine. Love, understanding, and appreciation flowed with each heartfelt communication. There was music and a very jovial atmosphere at the gathering. As I looked around at those included in the gala, I asked my best friend in spirit, Al, if people we do not want to see will be at the gala, such as those who brought deep pain or anguish to our lives.

Why Forgiveness Matters

As a side note, in my lifetime, I have learned to release through forgiveness all the pain, anger, and upset toward those who have hurt me. Carrying the negative emotions only affected me, not the person who harmed me. It is important to note that forgiveness is not a condoning of someone’s actions. It means releasing the hold their actions had on my life and looking toward the positive lessons I learned through these experiences. I do not need to be in the presence of the person or people who hurt me to release through forgiveness. I send forgiveness from the heart of my spirit to theirs during meditation. It is a freeing experience that may need to be conducted more than once as situations can arise which bring all the emotions and memories to the forefront. When this happens, I re-release the forgiveness and again look toward the lessons I am to be learning or still need to learn through these experiences. Moving past the negativity helped me to recognize the reasons why I needed to learn particular lessons in order to become the person I am today. These lessons, which are written in my soul contract, were designed to instigate soul growth and evolution. As a result, when negative circumstances arise, I ask myself what I am supposed to be learning in order to recognize the higher purpose for the events.

Seeing Those You Might Not Want to See

Even though I have forgiven someone for their actions, it does not necessarily mean I want to spend time with them in Heaven or have them in attendance for the gala celebration. This is true for many people who have been on the receiving end of pain from someone in their lifetime. It is for this purpose the original question arose in the workshop. In answer to the question I posed to Al while at my gala celebration, he shifted the scene once again. This time, I was in one of my visions of my personal Heaven. It was the beautiful space I visualize myself in when I meditate and ask to speak with my Heavenly Support Team. It was a grassy meadow, lush with tall grasses swaying in the breeze, wildflowers in many hues, the sun shining with soft puffy clouds in the cornflower blue sky, and a tall, leafy maple tree offering shade over a comfortable bench. As I strolled up the path leading to the maple tree, a figure was approaching me. It was a person who had brought great pain to my life and the lives of others. As I stood on the path, I sensed I had in some way purposefully opened the door to this encounter. I had the distinct knowing that event was occurring after the gala celebration and after my life review, which is an objective look at the lessons I learned or need to continue to work on from the soul contract I agreed to prior to my lifetime on earth. This soul, who was not in attendance at the gala, was coming to me at a time when I was ready to objectively discuss the events which occurred between us on earth. There was a feeling of serenity and a willingness to allow the full healing of our souls through higher understanding.

Healing and Understanding

Throughout this experience, which is one of the many ways in which I receive information about the Other Side, the purpose of our existence, and what happens beyond life on earth, I was being granted glimpses of what happens to our souls as we cross over, as well as what happens after we transition to Heaven. The original question about the various levels of Heaven remains to be answered, while the second one about whether we see people we do not want to see was answered through this meditation journey.

The healing and understanding which takes place in Heaven provides answers for our souls. It enables us to see and appreciate the bigger picture regarding the purposes of our existence. This experience is not limited to Heaven. While on earth, if we look for the positive reasons behind negative circumstances and learn to forgive ourselves and others for our transgressions, whether big or small, we can achieve a state of profound understanding and inner peace. As human beings, we will continually face situations designed to help us grow; however, it is up to us whether we will learn or repeat patterns until growth is achieved in this lifetime or the next. As to whether we will see people we do not want to see in Heaven, yes, but only when our souls are ready for the healing which comes through higher understanding and knowledge.

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!

With Love and Light,
