Their Life, Their Love, and Their Family

This 2.5 hour presentation includes:

  • David explains what actually happened 2,000 years ago based on historical facts along with three years of divinely orchestrated synchronicities that all tie into what people have experienced at the ‘Portal Between Heaven and Earth’ events he has presented since 2014.

While he was sharing this new information at Unity of Sedona, an attendee raised her hand three times to share that her Mary Magdalena Discussion / Channeling group received the same information about who took him down from the cross and helped him and Mary Magdalena escape. There is a reason he was taken down after six hours and why his body disappeared three days later.

  • David sings channeled songs written with Mary Magdalena and provides a 30-minute Soul Ascension Flute Meditation

According to David, “Mimi, my ex girlfriend, and I were told to go to the south of France in September 2017 after 18 months of Them channeling information through her. They showed us three places where They lived and how They survived and made Their way to France together. After we returned, the first place I shared this information was at the world famous Spiritualist Church in Casadega, Florida, which is sometimes referred to as the Sedona of the East Coast. The pastor’s wife came up to me when I was finished and said, ‘My husband has been the pastor here for 45 years and I have seen every famous spiritual speaker come through here. This was absolutely the best presentation I’ve ever heard.'”

David recommends that attendees research:

  • The article on SmithsonianMag.org titled, “Unearthing the Life of Jesus”
  • Download the movie, “Jesus in India.”
  • Verify the historical fact online that the Virgin Birth was added to the Bible 381 years later by Emperor Constantine.

Most people know Jesus was Jewish and his real name is Yeshua; however, few people know that he was a rabbi –  and in order to become a rabbi you must first have a wife and children.

Receiving Heavenly Messages from Loved Ones in Spirit

AngelAs a Spirit Medium, I help to connect people with loved ones that have crossed over into heaven, as well as with spirit guides, guardian angels, past spiritual masters, and archangels. Loved ones who come through in a reading include both people and animals. I am constantly delighted and amazed at the messages that come through, as well as the way in which they are communicated.

How Communications from Spirit are Received

When I communicate with spirits, all of my extrasensory senses are utilized.  Through clairvoyance, or extrasensory seeing, I am shown motion and still images of the deceased, as well as images that have symbolic meaning for the recipient of the reading. Through clairsentience, or extrasensory feeling, spirits send me physical indicators about the way in which they passed, such as a short sharp pain in the area of my heart which indicates that his or her life ended due to a heart attack. Through clairaudience, or extrasensory hearing, I am able to pick up auditory messages that spirits want to pass along to you. The use of clairalience and clairambience allows me to pick up on messages that are sent through my sense of taste and smell. For instance, I recently had an experience in which the strong taste of cigar smoke came through in a reading. When I shared this information with the recipient of the reading, they confirmed that the loved one coming through was a cigar smoker. Lastly, messages are sent to me using claircognizance, or extrasensory knowing. This is information that is known within my spirit. It is not shared through any of the others senses, it is information that has been downloaded to my mind that I share with the recipient of a reading.

Messages Shared After Loved Ones Have Been Identified

Once a spirit has been clearly recognized by the recipient of a reading through the initial validation process in which identity-revealing information is transmitted, such as about physical characteristics and personality traits, then it is time to share the messages that the spirit wants you to receive. The messages often include love, asking for forgiveness, and comfort about the spirit’s arrival in heaven.

Truthful and Heartfelt Guidance from Heaven

Because these spirits are in heaven, and can better see and understand the process of life on earth, they often offer guidance about your life path. It is important to keep in mind that the gift of divine communication is not to tell you what you necessarily want to hear, but to share the truth with you. The messages you receive are of great importance to the growth of your soul. Because we have been given the gift of free will, it is always up to the recipient of the reading to decide whether to follow the advice that is gifted to them by his or her heavenly support team.

What Happens When You Choose to Ignore Messages from Heaven

Some people have a strong adverse reaction to the messages because it requires that he or she let go of anger, grudges, and negative thought processes that he or she has held onto for a long time. The spirits are telling the person this,  not to make the him or her angry or upset, but rather to help this person to  release harmful patterns that are holding him or her back from achieving  personal happiness, and could even be causing the recipient of the reading  emotional, mental, and physical distress. If a person chooses to ignore the messages that spirits have shared with him or her, the spirits will not give up on their quest to help this person. He or she will continue to come across situations that will challenge him or her to grow as a soul, and to open his or her heart and mind to a more positive life path.

What Happens When You Listen to Divine Guidance

I am very happy to report that most people are open to the messages that they receive from spirit during readings. They understand the priceless value of the heavenly guidance that has been given to them. Amazing transformations and events do occur in the lives of the people who do take the messages to heart. I know not only because I am one of them, but also because of the feedback I receive from thankful clients who tell me about the fantastic turn their lives have taken as a result of following the advice given to them by their loved ones in spirit.

Best Advice

When you are the recipient of a spirit medium reading, my best advice is to keep an open mind about who will come through for you, as well as the messages that they will deliver to you about your life. It is a gift of divine guidance and intervention that could completely turn your life around if you listen closely to the information that spirits are sharing with you. This information originates not from the spirit medium who is delivering it, because he or she is only the vessel through which the communication flows, but from your heavenly support team who views your life from a much higher perspective. They want to see you succeed with the life lessons you have chosen for this lifetime, and hope that you recognize the honor and the blessings that they have gifted to you through their heavenly communications with you.

Namaste!

With much love and many blessings for all,

Your Self-Worth Is Not Measured by the Opinions of Others

Women enjoying autumnHave you taken a non-judgmental look inside your heart and spirit to assess the traits that define the essence of who you are? Have you accepted all of those traits in a loving manner by embracing and recognizing the positive ones, and acknowledging the ones that need a little work?

 Self-Awareness and Self-Love

Knowing who you are and loving who you are, are important factors for claiming the power within you that is rightfully yours. When you allow the negative words and actions of others to define you, you are giving other people the power to dim the light within you.

Determining the Reason behind Communications

There is a very big difference between someone providing you with constructive feedback and someone hurling insults and hurtful words at you. The clues to determining the difference are in the delivery and the motivation for the feedback.

Respect Comes Naturally

When people have your best interest at heart, they will speak to you in a respectful manner, and the thoughts they share with you come from the heart. The person who speaks with you in this manner is genuinely interested in your welfare, and would like to help you succeed.

It is Their Fear

On the opposite end of the spectrum, when people say vicious or mean things to you using sarcastic, biting, or angry tones, they are projecting their own negative feelings about themselves on you. The motivation for such behavior is based in fear. Often, it is because they envy what you possess and are afraid that they will never have it themselves. In this person’s mind, they mistakenly think that putting you down will raise themselves up. Instead of taking responsibility for themselves and their personal happiness, they lash out at you. When facing an onslaught such as this, you need to be strong enough in your own right in order to recognize the motivation behind this behavior, and to dismiss it as someone else’s fears and not a reflection of who you are.

How to Achieve the Best Results

In relationships and communications, it is love, self-love and love toward others, that creates the outcomes we desire. Coming from a place of fear or attempting to instill fear in others may temporarily achieve certain results; however, in the long-term, it eats away at the levels of trust and can ultimately destroy interpersonal relations.

What to Do

When you encounter people who are operating from a place of fear instead of love, you can choose to dismiss their comments and hurtful behavior and move on with your life. Whether it was a momentary transgression or a more problematic aspect of someone’s behavior, try to take a more understanding and compassionate approach by knowing that each person is doing their best to grapple with the issues that we contend with on earth. We all make mistakes, and, hopefully, we learn from them. Within your heart, mind, and soul, forgive the person for their transgression, and wish them love, health, and happiness.

Self-Worth Is Defined by You

All in all, when you love yourself for who you are and you operate from a standpoint of love, you can more easily recognize when someone’s behavior is motivated by his or her fears, and not genuine feedback that you should take to heart. Your self-worth is a value that is defined by you, and only you. The actions you take and the thoughts you share display to others the value you hold for yourself in your heart, mind, and spirit. Believe in you, and love who you are, because you are a beautiful light in this world who deserves an abundance of happiness and love.

Namaste!

With much love and many blessings for all,

Finding Moments of Serenity in a Challenging World

Spirit Island - Jasper, Alberta, CanadaLife on this earth can be very challenging and trying. Between the seeming mountains of responsibility, the complicated relationship dynamics, and an inordinate amount of negativity on the internet and television, it can seem like an insurmountable task to find serenity within our souls. While we are here to learn lessons for our souls, we do not have to take the hard road or get swallowed up by the less than wonderful moments in our lives. Nor do we need to expose ourselves to other people’s agendas that are based on fear rather than love. We can choose to find the positive reasons for negative circumstances – yes, they do exist, and if you look for them, you will find them. We can also choose to carve out moments of happiness for ourselves to keep us going, lighten our hearts, and create joyful memories we can call upon when times get rough.

Events on Earth Can Be Frustrating

As you know, we do not always get what we want, when we want it. This can be frustrating at best, and crushing at worst. It is the human ego within us demanding that our needs and wants are immediately met. Unfortunately, we are often disappointed when this does not occur. What can we do to ride out the storm while retaining hope for the future? Often, it takes a reminder that the circumstances we face have to do with soul contracts put in place prior to our birth. These contracts dictate the lessons we will learn for our souls while residing on earth. Since heaven is a very happy place, it is challenging for us to learn the hard and fast lessons that life on earth offers. That is why we face obstacles and trying circumstances here. This does not mean, though, that our lives are meant to be devoid of happiness. We are meant to overcome the challenges we face with love and hope, as well as the understanding that there are important reasons for events to occur. Our dreams can and do come true here. Sometimes we need to gather the fortitude necessary to have patience and faith in the beneficial outcomes of our affairs.

Finding the Reasons

When I find myself becoming frustrated with the length of time it is taking to see my dreams come to fruition, I remind myself to step back and stop worrying. God and the angels know what we are in need of, and they will provide it when the time is right for us. When I look back on my life, I can see the impeccable timing of the gifts I have been given. I can also understand why certain circumstances had to occur when they did because they gave me the skills I needed for future endeavors. When I was going through the tough times, it was difficult for me to understand the positive reasons for their occurrence. It is only through time and thoughtful examination that the true, positive reasons revealed themselves to me. However, I had to look for them. If I were to drown my heart and thoughts in negativity, it would be very hard for me to ever see the positive meanings behind any circumstances.

Relinquish Control and Breathe

By letting go of my desire to control certain outcomes, I am clearing the way for the universe to step in and deliver my most heartfelt desires. Instead of fighting and hitting road blocks, I relinquish control and focus on activities that bring me joy. Fretting and worrying do not change circumstances, they only waste time. Living in the present and making the most of my current circumstances helps me appreciate and enjoy who I am, as well as those around me. A great way to bring your focus back to the present is to simply breathe. Place your hands on your heart and concentrate on your breath as you inhale in through your nose. Envision positive energy flowing in as the air flows into your body. Take a brief pause, then exhale through your mouth while envisioning the release of negative energies. Your breathing should sound like the ocean. This relaxing Finding Your Center exercise is great to use for calming anxieties, focusing your energy on the present, and helping you speak from the heart.

You Are Given the Power to Succeed

When God wants you to do something, you will be given the abilities, the strength of will, and the resources to do it. You will also receive repeated signs and messages pointing you toward those goals. Divine intervention will lead you to the path you are to follow, and it often happens in ways that are wonderful and, at times, miraculous. It takes an open mind to see beyond the obvious to the extraordinary signs and circumstances delivered by your heavenly support team. When you recognize it, your heavenly support team cheers, because you acknowledged all of their hard work on your behalf. Your gratefulness will lead to even more events and divine intervention, as they know you are paying attention and appreciating their assistance.

Serenity is Vital to Your Path

It is important for your overall well being to create moments of serenity, especially when you feel most anxious or harried by the events of life. Remember, you have an incredible team of heavenly beings that love and support you. It is their desire to help guide you to the best possible paths for you. You can help them with their efforts by learning how to create and invite moments of calm in your life. It is in the stillness that you are most receptive to the guidance that can lead you out of the darkness and into the light.

Namaste!

Prayers from This Side of Heaven Are More Than a Request

Reasons Why We Pray

When we pray, we are asking a higher power to step in and help with a situation that seems beyond our control or outside the scope of our personal reach. People often ask for help from God, past spiritual masters (deeply spiritual people who lived life on earth but have crossed over and help from the Other Side, such as Saints, Buddha, etc.), the Archangels, and more. Requests for assistance are often made when we, or those we love, are facing dire circumstances or have a heartfelt desire we would like to have fulfilled. We pray for certain outcomes, such as for improved health, safety during travel or in storms, financial stability, or love. Even though we pray, there are times when it seems prayers go unanswered. Some may ask, what is the point of praying if the outcome is not the one we requested? Is there anyone even listening?

Praying Angel StatueMore than a Request for a Specific Outcome

Prayers are a complex subject that have a much deeper meaning than what appears on the surface. Each one of us is on a spiritual journey on earth. As human beings, we have agreed to live a lifetime on earth to learn important lessons for our souls, as well as to help others with their soul plans. These lessons are bound in a soul contract which outlines the lessons, but does not specify the details about how the lessons will occur on this plane. Once we are born, events are orchestrated to help us to learn the lessons we agreed to in this lifetime. Free will is a very critical element of our journeys, because it gives each person the ability to control his or her reactions to events. If a lesson is not learned the first time, it will recur in different forms until it is completed. Because of the ever-changing circumstances of action and reaction due to free will, the events which trigger our life lessons are facilitated on a daily basis. It would amaze you to see and comprehend the incredible amount of planning that goes into events on earth.

It is important to note that, once we are born on earth, knowledge of our soul contracts is partially or fully obscured from our memory in order to provide optimal conditions for learning. One of the main lessons of our journey is to rediscover the knowledge hidden within our souls about our divine origins, our connection with all beings, and the reasons why we exist. In order to learn and grow, challenging situations are orchestrated on earth by higher beings to reawaken us to the knowledge buried within our souls. The obstacles and circumstances we face are designed to make us dig deep into our souls to find answers and to establish, reconnect, or increase our faith, as well as to discover the solace, hope, and grace that accompanies the epiphanies about the positive reasons behind all experiences.

Reawakening to Our Connection with Higher Beings

Within our souls is a line of communication which connects us to all beings. Extensive knowledge of this system may be obscured; however, bits and pieces remain as a lifeline to help us in times of need. It is through this system that our prayers are sent and received. It is also the system that is used for spirit to spirit communication (also known as mediumship), psychic messages, and intuitive messages. We have not been abandoned to withstand life on earth alone. We have assistance we can tap into, and life offers many opportunities to reawaken us to the means of that assistance.

Prayers, which are sent through the line of communication via thought, are one way in which we are reminded of our connection with a higher power. In times of great need, we often revert to asking God or the Creator for help. Prayers deepen our connection and reinforce the belief in our divine connection to a force larger and more powerful than ourselves. They also bring out the best in our nature when we pray for positive outcomes for those we love. Prayers are a product of empathy and love, which strengthens bonds between people on earth, as well as with the heavenly beings tasked with assisting us.

When our prayers are answered, the circumstances encountered can serve as a reinforcement of our beliefs in a higher power. Over time, our belief systems will be tested by many challenging situations. It is up to us whether we continue to believe in the existence of a higher power and continue our deep dive into soul evolution and growth or to give in to the limited voice of the human ego which fuels fears and worries in its efforts to place obstacles between us and the higher beings, such as God or the angels, who have our best interests at heart.

On earth, we encounter situations which tear down the walls of the human ego that often get in the way of spiritual connections in order to expose the core of our spiritual selves and get us back to our true spiritual nature. Answered prayers are a beacon of hope in an otherwise challenging world. Our souls need the reminders, which come to us disguised as tough times, of the true meaning of life which is love for the self and others.

Prayers also serve as reminders of our connection with our Heavenly Support Teams, which include God, the Archangels, past spiritual masters, and loved ones in spirit. It is comforting to know we have help during a time of need and, at the very least, we have someone listening to our most fervent and heartfelt desires. When our prayers are answered in ways we recognize, it reinforces the support and connection we have with one another.

Answered, But in Ways We May Not Expect

All prayers are heard; however, they may be answered in ways we do not expect. With our limited knowledge, we may not always comprehend the bigger picture of our lives and the lives of others. The human ego, with its demanding voice inside our psyches, wants what it wants the way it wants it. In its role as an instigator of challenges, including the obscuring of divine knowledge, the human ego demands fulfillment of prayers in specific ways. However, this may not always be in our best interests. This is because the lessons laid out in our soul contracts, as well as the decisions we have made, play a role in whether prayers are answered in the manner requested. For instance, the outcome you may be asking for may not be in your best interests; therefore, it may seem as though your prayer goes unanswered because the request was not readily granted in the exact way you requested.

Our Heavenly Support Teams know the contents of our soul contracts and the lessons we are to learn. If a prayer is not answered in the way you wanted it to be answered, it does not mean it was not heard, it means it may be answered in a way that better aligns with your life plan. Keep in mind, as human beings, the scope of our understanding regarding the divine reasons for events on earth has been partially or fully obscured. We do not have all of the answers when we want them or even how we want them because it would take away from our learning experience. Faith and trust, as well as always searching for the positive reasons for negative circumstances, go a long way toward bringing understanding and internal peace, as well as lessening time wasted on worries and regrets. Outcomes opposite to what we prayed for are not punishments or denials, but rather a redirecting of our energies into optimal circumstances for soul evolution.

The Power of Prayers

It is important to emphasize that every prayer is heard and answered in the best possible way for you and those for which you made the requests. It is not a waste of time, but rather a significant part of our lives which helps connect us with the divine beings who are helping us with our journeys on earth, as well as with our fellow human beings and the animals who journey with us.

The thoughts we put out into the universe are very powerful. They help shape our destinies and provide information to our Heavenly Support Teams about our progress. Prayers are much more than requests for assistance. They are a reminder of our vital connection with the divine beings tasked with helping us experience life in the best way possible according to our soul contracts, as well as a reminder of the knowledge that there is more to our existence beyond life on earth.

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.

Countering Meanness with Kindness

FriendsWhen someone is having a bad day, they may lash out at you just because you are there, not because you had done anything to invoke their anger. It is unfortunate when someone behaves in this manner; however, we are all human and, at times, our emotions get the best of us.

Reasons behind Hurtful Behavior and Our Reactions
Exhaustion, highly stressful situations, feelings of oppression, rejection, and other strongly negative contributing factors make us more susceptible to lashing out at whoever is within our vicinity. The longer a person is subjected to negative conditions, the more distraught they may become. In fact, they may not even seem to behave like themselves because they are having a hard time moving beyond a state of distress. Your instinctive response may be to fire back at the person in an effort to protect or defend yourself. This is because you may feel threatened in some way by their behavior, as anger can be perceived as an attack. It is under these conditions that people on the receiving end of a person’s negative and uncharacteristic behavior should try to take a step back before replying with more anger, which may lead to an escalated exchange of negative energies, as well as damaged or broken relationships.

Assess the Situation before Reacting
Before responding, try to look at the situation from the other person’s point of view. What is going on with them that they would lash out at you for what seems to be no reason? This behavior can be a cry for help. It can also be that this person is harboring a lot of negative feelings within themselves that they are having a hard time handling. A person who lashes out is usually feeling a tremendous amount of pressure and stress, and like anything else, that pressure needs to be relieved or it will cause an explosion. Instead of responding with anger that will feed into the existing pressure, do your best to respond with kindness and compassion, even if the person does not appreciate it at the time. In this way, you may stop the escalation of anger and prevent it from infecting you. Your understanding and empathy may be the very act of kindness this person needs to relieve their stress and realize just how badly they were behaving toward others who did not deserve it.

Ask for Assistance from Above
If you are having difficulty dispensing kindness in the face of someone else’s hurtful behavior, ask your heavenly support team to help you to increase your compassion toward others. In addition, ask them to help the person who is in distress, as they are the ones most in need of assistance. Send the distressed person love and light from your heart and spirit, and request that they receive the healing they need to relieve them of the distress and pent up anger in order to live a happy and satisfied life.

What Is Inside of You?
If you find it is you who is lashing out at others and walking around with anger in your heart and mind, then it is time to take an in-depth look at what is really bothering you, and apologize, if possible, to those that you hurt.

To discover what is going on, the first step is recognizing and identifying the true problem. For example, getting extremely angry at your partner for leaving their socks on the floor after asking them several times not to, may only be a surface trigger that signals the existence of a deeper problem, such as of a sense of not being heard or appreciated at work and at home. Often, it is miscommunications and misunderstandings that lead to problems within relationships. By examining and uncovering the true problems, you can begin to work on positive solutions to heal them.

The second step is to look for solutions that will improve the circumstances that are causing the problems. Are there actions you can take to improve your situation or remove yourself from it? If not, are there ways that you can change the way that you perceive the situations that will ease your emotional pain? It may seem as if there is no way out and that the problems are formidable; however, that line of thinking can be the product of limited thinking that is boxed in by only seeing the problem. Try your best to get past step one, and open your mind to various solutions. There are other options available. They may not always appear to be the options you want to take; however, if you can let go of your anger and stress long enough to clear your mind, you may discover that the options may lead you to better opportunities. Be sure to ask others for help. Brainstorm ideas with respected friends, family members, or colleagues. By being truthful with yourself and others as you go through this process, you will not only help yourself on a human level, but also on a soul level, as you evolve and develop through these empowering experiences.

The third step is to be kind to yourself. If you are working to the point of exhaustion, take a step back. A break from the stressful situations will allow you time to refresh and look at situations with a more relaxed state of mind. Most important of all, ask your heavenly support team of God, the archangels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit, to help you. They are eager to lend a hand, and will do so if you ask for their assistance and are open to receiving their help. Sometimes, too, when you leave an opening for your heavenly support team to help out, they may just solve the problem for you through the presentation of new opportunities.

Multiply the Kindness in the World
As you go throughout your day, keep in mind that we are all human, we all make mistakes, and we are all doing the best we can under the circumstances that affect our lives. By countering meanness with kindness, we provide opportunities to make positive contributions that have the potential to bring healing to our lives and the lives of others.

Namaste!

Knowing You’re Not Alone on Your Journey Through Life

Looking Toward HeavenHave you ever felt as though you are all alone in this world, facing the challenges of life? I have felt that in my lifetime, especially when I was going through a particularly tough time. It felt as though there was no one around who understood what I was going through or who could be there for me to listen or to provide comfort. I have learned that throughout my trials and tribulations, I have never truly been alone…and neither are you. You have a support system in Heaven that comes from the Creator, the Angels, your Spirit Guides, Past Spiritual Masters, and deceased loved ones. They are there for you. They see your struggles and worries. They hear your prayers. They feel your pain and want to ease it for you. They also share your joy and happiness. In essence, they are there for you in good times and in bad.

You can reach out to your heavenly support system at any time through prayer in thought, said out loud, or in writing. Ask them for help with the situation at hand. They hear you and will do what they can to answer your prayers, as long are they are in accordance with your soul plan and greater good. If what you are praying for will ultimately cause you greater sadness and pain, or send you down a path that would do more harm than good, your heavenly support team will do their best to guide you to better opportunities that meet your true needs and desires. For example, if you are praying for the return of a lost love and that person doesn’t return right away, it may seem as though your prayers weren’t heard or answered…but they have, just not in the way that you may think.

Sometimes it takes time for prayers to be answered. The timing is not based on what we think is best, but on the perfect timing for the evolution of our souls. Sometimes, too, we may not get what we asked for because there is something better coming along for us. Even though we do not always recognize the help that is materializing from our heavenly team, we can help ourselves by having patience and an open mind about how our prayers will be answered. With the situation involving a lost love, God and the Angels know that what you are really asking for is someone who will love and appreciate you for who you are. That person may or may not be ready to do that at the time of your prayer and/or there may be lessons that each of you still need to learn before progress can be made. It can also be that you were only meant to be together to learn particular lessons and now you need to move on. Or, the timing may be perfect for your souls to reunite and they will return to you. We can assist in the answering of our prayers by being mindful about our actions and looking at our experiences to see what lessons we need to learn from them. By taking responsibility for ourselves in this way, we are actively playing an important role in our soul’s evolutional process.

Keep in mind that our support team in Heaven sees and knows much more than we do here on Earth. They know everything about us and what would be best for the evolution of our soul. Therefore, when you ask for help know that they are working on your behalf and that they send you their love. They are always there for you when you need them…all you have to do is reach out with your thoughts and prayers, knowing that your heart’s desires have been heard and will be answered with the perfect timing that is guided by your support team in Heaven. In the meantime, find your center, be at peace with yourself, and know that you are not alone on your journey through this lifetime.

Namaste!

Utilizing Your Intuition

Illumined MindThere are no coincidences…bumping into a friend at the grocery store, meeting a new person, being in the right place at the right time to land your dream job, winning the lottery, etc…these events occur as answers to our prayers, whether as a necessary step in the evolution of our souls or the actual realization of our dreams. We can utilize our intuition, the inner voice of knowing, to decipher the signs and events that are placed before us.

The circumstances that lead to seemingly coincidental situations are orchestrated by Spirit. When I say Spirit, I mean God, the Angels, our deceased loved ones, Past Spiritual Masters, and Spirit Guides. They provide us with “invisible” help as we go throughout our days. They speak to us through our intuition. Their timing, attention to detail, and orchestration of events is an amazing phenomenon that we experience every day, whether we are aware of their assistance or not. The more aware you are of the presence of Spirit in your life and the way that they operate, the more you can see the wonder of how they play a significant role in the evolution of your life.

Too often, we are told by naysayers that the mundane world is all there is – that the supernatural does not exist in this world and that miracles are rare occurrences that only happen to a select few. That is the chatter of the ego, the negative voice of our subconscious, that blocks us from the light and from seeing the wondrous world that exists beyond the ordinary surface of experience. We can choose to let our ego take over and give in to the belief that what you see is what you get or we can choose to break through the veil that covers our awareness in order to see the extraordinary that permeates our lives everyday.

Breaking through the veil means learning to perceive life in a different way. Learning how to utilize and listen to our intuition is a great place to start. There are many books out there about intuition; however, for people starting out on this path or looking to improve their skills, I usually recommend that they read “Practical Intuition” by Laura Day (Note: I have no affiliation with her or her book. I recommend it because it was very helpful for me.). Laura’s book helps you to recognize the signs around you and to retrain the way your mind processes the information it is receiving. The more you work with your intuition, the better you will become at reading the meaning of the signs, as well as their purpose.

If you feel that you are struggling with the concepts, feel free to ask your Angels for help. They will be glad to provide you with the assistance you need. Keep an open mind and have patience. Everything will come to you at the perfect time for your development. This does not mean that it will come at the time that you think is perfect, but what they determine as perfect. Remember, they see and know much more than we do. Have patience, be open, and know that help is on its way.

Enjoy your journey, whether you are just starting out or have been tuning into your intuition for years. An illumined mind that is attuned to the gift of intuition can reveal the threads that link your life purposes with those of others, while providing a map to guide your way.

Namaste!

With Light and Love,
Karen
