Reincarnation: The Many Lives We Live

Reincarnation of our souls is the concept of the soul experiencing many lifetimes in different forms or physical housings. Our souls are made up of energy which take many forms throughout our existence. Heaven is where our souls are born, created directly through love from the omnipotent soul of God. It is here where we create plans for our spiritual journeys in the form of soul contracts for specific lifetimes. The soul contracts contain a plan in outline form for the lessons we will learn in the upcoming lifetime of our choosing. During the creation of these plans, we work with the members of our soul groups to integrate our plans in order to help one another learn the lessons agreed to in the contracts. It is important to note that the ways the lessons will unfold on Earth are not determined until we arrive here. Events are orchestrated in real time based on the lessons we agreed to prior to birth, as well as the freewill decisions we make and the resulting effects. It is an incredibly precise and complex process which is in place for every living being on Earth and for which there are innumerable outcomes.

There are many locations we can visit throughout the universe for different purposes and lifetimes. Earth is just one of the locations we can visit for a lifetime of lessons. Once we have completed our soul contracts, we return to Heaven, which is the hub from which we were created and to which we return after every journey. Our main soul groups, which include our immediate family and friends, regroup in Heaven. After a period of rest and relaxation, we determine where our next journeys will take place which will best suit our needs for the evolution of our souls. For the purpose of this article, I will focus on our experiences as human beings on a spiritual journey on Earth.

Why Leave Heaven for a Lifetime on Earth

 In Heaven, the experience for our souls is different. We learn lessons there, but not at the same pace as we do on Earth. Here, we have the gift of the human ego which propels learning through negativity. It acts as a challenge to humankind to learn how to manage this mechanism in our minds which is the source of our fears, regrets, anxieties, and doubts.

When we are born on earth, information about the soul contract we agreed to in this lifetime is veiled from us in order to provide the opportunity to learn without bias. The information, also known as our Akashic Records, is stored in our souls, as well as in the Hall of Records in Heaven. Portions of the records can be accessed through spiritual means, such as past life regressions, meditations, and more. The records contain all our individual soul contracts and experiences for all our lifetimes in the past and the current lifetime, as well as information in outline form about potential lessons for future lifetimes.

A Lifetime on Earth is the Accelerated Course for Soul Evolution

Our journey through a lifetime on Earth is what I refer to as the accelerated course for soul evolution. The experiences we have here are designed to maximize our learning opportunities through situations which challenge all our knowledge and beliefs about ourselves, our world, our existence, each other, the universe, God, Heaven, and more. It is a journey of rediscovery about the information contained within our souls which contains all the answers we seek. It takes hundreds, if not thousands, of lifetimes to grow as a soul.

Younger Souls and Older Souls

Younger souls have the tendency to operate more from a place of fear because they have not learned how to manage the human ego and do not yet realize that love is the reason for our existence. Lower level energies, such as selfishness and greed, tend to occupy the thought processes of younger souls, which leads them to take actions that are harmful to themselves and others. In contrast, older souls operate more from a place of love and often put others before themselves. Some of their lessons include learning how to establish a balance of giving and receiving. When on a truly accelerated path, older souls tend to go through very difficult and challenging experiences early in life in order to get them up to speed with what they need to accomplish later in life.

On Earth, our experiences are intertwined. Older souls help younger souls with life lessons and younger souls help older souls with life lessons. Each of us helps one another through our journeys through the cause and effect of our actions and the circumstances we are presented with. The decisions we make determine whether we learn the lessons we are meant to learn. If a lesson has not been completed, it will return with a different set of circumstances until we have gained the necessary knowledge for our souls.

Because we are on different levels of soul evolution, it means that not everyone will understand or grasp the concepts about our existence in this lifetime. This does not mean older souls are better than younger souls, as all souls have their individual purposes. As we grow from a child to an adult in life, we attend school to learn. The same process happens with our souls through many lifetimes. Each lesson we learn helps us move forward with the evolution of our souls and the time when our souls will be reintegrated with God.

Evidence of Past Lives

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the great composer, was a child prodigy who could replay a song after hearing it once and who composed complex music scores at a very young age. When a soul exhibits the ability to complete intricate new tasks with great ease, it is a sign the soul lived many lifetimes and has performed similar tasks in those other lifetimes with great skill. These residual experiences are stored within the memory of the soul and can also be triggered by similar circumstances in our current lifetime. The information is not limited to skill sets. It also contains experiences that deeply affected the soul, enough to cause a carryover into this lifetime. For instance, an unexplained fear of fire or water in which the soul has not had an experience in this lifetime to cause it may be able to be traced back to experiences in past lifetimes. In some instances, it is a foreshadowing of events to come.

Have you ever experienced an instant connection with someone upon your first meeting with them? This may be because of a connection in a past lifetime or in Heaven. Are you drawn to specific cultures, music, activities, locations, and events from history? One or more of your past lifetimes may have included experiences from these times. Have you ever been somewhere and felt you had been there before, even though it is your first visit? Again, this may be a reference to a previous lifetime in which you spent time in this location.

There are fascinating stories about toddlers talking about people and places in history for which they would have no previous knowledge. They do it with such detail that it cannot be confused with anything other than a past life experience. Other toddlers and very young children refer to how they met or knew their deceased grandmother or grandfather in Heaven. These memories of the soul are strong for the young children because they have just come from Heaven. Unfortunately, by the age of five, most of these old memories have faded as new memories begin filling the mind with current life experiences.

Past Life Regressions

There are many ways to delve into our souls to rediscover past life experiences. One of the ways to do this is to perform or experience a past life regression. This practice is usually performed by a medium trained to use their gifts to receive information about past lives. You can also use your own meditation time as an opportunity to ask to have past life information revealed. Ask your spirit guides for assistance with the process and remain open and objective to everything you see, feel, hear, taste, and smell during your meditation. The information will provide clues and glimpses into some of your past lives, as well as your connections with your immediate soul groups. Within meditation journeys, you may discover the different roles and genders you experienced which provided elements of knowledge that deepen your appreciation for people from all walks of life.

Soul Connections

Throughout our existences as souls, we are connected to one another through the love within the hearts of our spirits. The experiences we share create a powerful bond which stays with us through this lifetime and beyond. For now, make the most of the time you have on Earth and look toward situations you encounter as opportunities to learn and grow as a soul. Appreciate those around you as you are all on this journey together, helping one another to evolve on a spiritual level.

Not Seeing Signs from Your Loved Ones in Spirit? Here Are Reasons Why This Occurs

Rising sun under the Earth planet, abstract backgrounds

When a loved one crosses over into Heaven, they often send signs to let their loved ones on earth know they are in existence in spirit and still connected with them, as well as to share their love and let them know they are doing well in Heaven. Often, these signs can be very strong soon after their crossing. This is because they are still vested in the people they love on earth and want to bring them assurance and comfort during their time of grief. The signs must be very strong during these times because grief tends to immerse our souls in sadness, effectively blocking awareness of that which exists outside of ourselves. Because they recently crossed over, loved ones in spirit usually have an experienced guide with them to help orchestrate the occurrence of these signs.

Signs from Heaven

Immediately after a loved one in spirit crosses, it may seem as though there are no signs at all, or the signs may be very strong and clear then seem to lessen or disappear altogether. There are many reasons why it may seem as though loved ones in spirit are not sending as many signs or any signs at all. First, let us explore the ways loved ones in spirit send signs and examples of some of the stronger ones which may occur soon after they cross over into Heaven.

Soon after a loved one in spirit crosses over into Heaven, they are often eager to send a sign to their loved ones on earth letting them know they have crossed over into Heaven, as well as to send their love and comfort. Often, loved ones in spirit are accompanied by a guide to help them during their time of transition and these guides assist with the sending of signs.

Because people in spirit no longer have a physical body with which to send communications, they use the universal soul-to-soul form of communication, also known as spirit communication or mediumship, which is a much richer method for transmitting information. This method can utilize all the senses to provide a deep and direct connection with those they are trying to communicate with. The options are limitless when it comes to the many ways loved ones in spirit can send signs. Here are some examples of strong signs sent soon after a loved one crosses over into Heaven:

  • Seeing a loved one in spirit fully manifested in energy form, much like the appearance of a ghost, in which you see them in a slightly transparent form of themselves (Note: This takes a tremendous amount of energy and, therefore, a rare occurrence.)
  • Seeing loved ones in spirit in dreams
  • Finding coins or feathers in unusual places
  • Seeing repeated visual signs which remind you of the loved one in spirit, such as their favorite places in the world, hobbies, jobs, their name, or their relationship to the recipient, as well as butterflies, ladybugs, dragonflies, hummingbirds, doves, and more
  • Smelling a strong scent in the air which is reminiscent of the loved one who passed, such as their perfume or cologne, cigar or cigarette smoke, or the scent of their home
  • Catching a quick glimpse out of the corner of your eye of a presence in the form of the loved one in spirit or as a dark shadow (Note: Dark shadows are often misidentified as ominous entities, when they are really loved ones in spirit who are partially manifesting.)
  • Feeling as though a loved one in spirit placed a hand on one’s shoulder or affectionately touching your face – this feeling can be accompanied by a tingling sensation on the shoulder or face
  • Feeling a presence with you that is comforting
  • Hearing the voice of a loved one in spirit saying your name or words of comfort
  • Songs playing on the radio about Heaven or that remind you of a loved one in spirit
  • Electronics acting up for no explainable reason (e.g., blinking lights, electronic screens freezing up or digitizing, children’s toys or music devices playing on their own, etc.)
  • And much more

Reasons Why Signs from Loved Ones in Spirit Seem to Lessen or Not Occur

Often, people on earth expect their loved ones in spirit to manifest like a ghost in front of them and be able to hold a long conversation with them with questions and answers. This may happen; however, it is very, very rare. The energy it takes to do this is tremendous and the loved ones in spirit may not know how to do this immediately after crossing over. Instead, signs are sent to get their messages through. What happens though when it seems these signs are lessening over time or seem to disappear?

Again, there are many reasons why signs may seem to lessen or not be present at all. It is not because your loved ones no longer care for you. They do and they are around you whether you are aware of their presence or not. Here are some examples as to why it may be challenging to recognize signs or why they seem to have dissipated:

  • Strong grief can temporarily block the ability to recognize signs (Note: This is because deep grief turns the attention inwards and can be all encompassing at times. Experiencing grief after loss is a natural process in which we need to give ourselves time to process our feelings and emotions, as well as time to adjust to the major transitions and changes to our lives.)
  • Not knowing how loved ones in spirit send signs or communicate with loved ones on earth
  • Expecting the same sign every time
  • Loved ones in spirit give us space to heal our hearts (Note: If they constantly made their presence known, those of us on earth would have difficulty moving forward because their presence may potentially prevent us from adapting to not having them physically with us on earth. This is a major transition for both you and your loved one. Even though your souls remain connected, adjustments need to be made and acknowledged for healing to take place.)
  • Times when loved ones in spirit are not allowed to interfere with decisions we need to make. It is during these times that it will feel as though they are not with us.
  • We are very sad or focusing too much on the mundane issues of life, which eats up focus and closes us off to recognizing signs
  • Misconstruing signs as representations of negative entities
  • Missing or dismissing signs due to lack of knowledge, fear, sadness, skepticism, or disbelief
  • Not giving yourself time to heal and adjust to the major transitions which occur when a loved one crosses over into Heaven, which can lead to a desperate search for signs when loved ones in spirit are trying to give you time and space to heal
  • They are learning how to send signs to loved ones on earth and participating in activities in Heaven which temporarily suspend the sending of signs

Be Kind to Yourself and Know Your Loved Ones in Spirit Are There for You

As with any major transition in our lives, we need time to adjust to the changes. While we are processing grief on earth and living our lives, our loved ones in spirit are also adjusting to their existence in Heaven. You and your loved ones in spirit are connected through the hearts of your spirits. There is nothing that can break the bond of the love you share. Be kind to yourself by giving yourself time to grieve, learn about how loved ones in spirit communicate and send signs, and have patience with yourself and your loved ones in spirit. They are there for you and will send signs when the time is right for you.

Trusting in Circumstances and Retraining Your Mind to Focus on the Positive

Light Bursting from Behind the Clouds

Trust in the circumstances you are in because they are not only meant to be, but also are leading you to a better place in the evolution of your soul. Even if times are challenging or you do not understand where circumstances are leading, there are positive reasons for these situations. Negative circumstances are not what they seem on the surface, as there is an amazing interconnected network of events occurring at this very moment which are leading us into situations designed to help us grow as souls.

Seeing the Positives Hidden Within

Events we perceive as negative are designed to help us grow, often at an accelerated pace. Positive experiences encourage growth through reward. On earth, it may seem as though negative circumstances outweigh the positive. This is not necessarily true. Pain, emotional or physical, often acts like a bookmark on our souls. Because of this, it is sometimes easier to recall painful situations because they left a very strong impression tied to lessons for our souls. The human ego, which is the seat of negativity, uses these bookmarks to retrieve information and persuade us into thinking there is more negative than positive. However, in knowing this, you can train your brain to recall the positive.

Important Insights Revealed

One evening as I sat in meditation, my best friend, Michele, who crossed over into Heaven several decades ago, appeared to me. Memories of our relationship flooded in; however, all had negative connotations, including the heart-wrenching way she passed, the great troubles she experienced prior to her passing, and more. In my mind I said, “No! This is not what my relationship with Michele was about. Show me at least two positive memories to counter each of the negative ones just shown.” As I continued to relax in the meditation journey, the positive memories started to flood in about the good times Michele and I enjoyed. It warmed my heart and taught me an important lesson about the ease with which we recall the negative and how we can turn that around by redirecting our thoughts to recall the positive experiences. Now when I think of Michele, it is with joy in my heart for the good times we shared.

Daily Gratitude

Each day, I work on emphasizing the positive over the negative by expressing gratitude for all the lessons I have learned, the people and animals in my life, the opportunities to give and receive love, the gifts I have been given, all that I have, and so much more. When negative circumstances arise, I do my best to focus on the lessons behind the circumstances instead of allowing sadness or self-pity to kick in, as those emotions are counterproductive and wasteful. Because I actively choose to look for the positive lessons behind negative circumstances, I have been given glimpses into the amazing ways events are orchestrated, with one circumstance leading to another and another, ending with a whole host of positive experiences hidden within. A very simple example of this would be having a tire on your vehicle go flat, which leads you to a repair shop for fixing. This could be viewed as an inconvenience as you need to alter your plans and pay for an unexpected expense. However, while at the shop, you bump into an old acquaintance who, after inquiring about how you have been and what you have been up to, provides you with a tip to help you with your career. This piece of information ends up helping you in more ways than you thought possible and came at the perfect time for you. There are no coincidences in life. All events are orchestrated from Heaven with our best interests in mind. This sequence of events started with a negative but ended with a positive. You never know where life will lead you; however, if you keep an open mind and do your best to focus on the positives, they are there. It may take time to see the positives, especially when you are immersed within a challenging situation. It is at those times it would be helpful to let go of unproductive striving and look toward solutions and the lessons within. If solutions are proving difficult to determine, this is when I let go and let God. In my mind, I hand my challenges up to God and ask for assistance, then I take my mind off the issues by focusing on other tasks or activities I enjoy while I wait for instructions about the next steps to take. These instructions will come in the form of urges to take positive actions or repetitive signs or messages.

Asking for Help

Try not to be too hard on yourself or allow a barrage of negativity to get you down. There are times when events outside of you may disturb your thoughts or increase frustration or sadness about events in the world or in the lives of those you love. If you are struggling to grapple with difficult issues affecting your life or the lives of others, I recommend calling on God and the Archangels to provide you examples of the good in the world or to show you ways you can assist in the situation or help make the world a better place. I do this when negative news about the world becomes overwhelming. I also send prayers asking for God to intervene and heal the situations. Even though there are positive reasons for negative circumstances, it can be easy to be overwhelmed at times by an onslaught of troubling news, whether it is about our own lives, the lives of those we love, or the world. Ask for help from above or from those around you if you need it and do what you can to take positive actions, including looking for the lessons behind the circumstances and, if possible, solutions to improve circumstances for those affected.

We Are All Human

Throughout all the experiences of life, it is important to remember we are all human. We make mistakes, we get back up, we go through good times and bad, and we are all living through this experience together. Be kind to yourself and others through understanding and forgiveness, and by knowing there will be people who have not yet progressed through certain lessons which enable them to operate from a place of love. We are a mix of younger souls and older souls who are helping each other learn lessons, all with the goal of helping our souls evolve and grow to a place of higher understanding and peace through love. Viewing our experiences from a more positive perspective will help make our lifetimes more enjoyable and productive, while helping us to see and experience the love and guidance from Heaven which influences our lives every day.

Can Loved Ones in Spirit See Us from Heaven?

Guardian angel volunteering

When our loved ones in spirit cross over into Heaven, there is an amazing transformation which takes place. Not only are their souls released from their physical bodies and continue on in energy form, but they also gain great insight into the inner workings of Heaven and Earth. Knowledge is revealed about the purposes of their lives, why events occurred the ways they did, and the lessons contained within their soul contracts. Through the process of gaining greater understanding of reasons for events on earth, they often volunteer to help their loved ones who are still there. The love which connected souls while on earth is a bond that remains between souls. Because of this, our loved ones in spirit can gain access to our lives from the other plane in order to help guide us and provide assistance when they can.

Watching Over Us as Guardian Angels

Once in Heaven, our loved ones in spirit can volunteer to be our guardian angels. By volunteering for this job, they agree to watch over us and help us when needed. This does not mean, though, that they can interfere with lessons we need to learn for our souls. They can assist us by providing signs and messages to help us to navigate our lives, steer us toward positive opportunities through urges to take action, and help avert certain events. All actions they take are orchestrated in tandem with our soul contracts, which are overseen by the Archangels who grant permission for the assistance. In order to help us, guardian angels need to be able to see events which are occurring, as well as understand events from the past which influence our decisions and be given glimpses into potential future events.

Past Life Pavilion

Loved ones in spirit who volunteer to be guardian angels can visit the Hall of Records where all Akashic Records are stored. These records contain information about our past lives and current lives, including the soul contracts we agreed to prior to life on earth. When visiting the Hall of Records, guardian angels can enter the Past Life Pavilion to learn more about us and what motivates the actions we take in order to better assist us on earth. These actions are performed with love and should not be viewed as an invasion of privacy. It comes from the desire to help through a deeper understanding of who we are as souls.

While bringing through communications from loved ones on the Other Side, also known as a reading, the loved ones in spirit have shown me specific scenes from the past in which they were not present for but have greatly affected the recipient of the reading. They show these scenes to indicate their knowledge of the past events, as well as to assist with any residual circumstances currently affecting the recipient.

Additionally, loved ones in spirit often like to share scenes of events which have occurred since they have passed in order to demonstrate not only their awareness of the events, but also that they were present in spirit when the events took place. The events shown range from simple occurrences, such as the purchase of new décor for the home or the habit of speaking to the photograph of a loved one in spirit, to more complex situations, such as the outcomes of lawsuits over their estates and actions taken by the parties involved.

Loved Ones in Spirit are Around You More than You Think

Even if you are not aware of their presence, loved ones in spirit are around you quite often. It is important to note that they do respect your privacy, especially those times of intimate behaviors which are not meant for public viewing.

All loved ones in spirit can see us from the Other Side, not just those who have volunteered to be guardian angels. They love us and want to know how we are doing. Loved ones in spirit often visit us on earth to let us know they are around and that they love us. They use signs to let you know they are around, such as visual images and music which reminds you of them, scents in the air, cravings for food they used to cook, and feeling their presence. They also check in on other living family members, including significant others, children, and grandchildren, even if they did not have a chance to meet them while they were alive. They are certainly aware of their presence and importance in your life.

Loved ones in spirit can be in more than once place at a time and can quickly move from one place to another because they are in energy form. When giving a reading over the phone, they often provide me with images showing the location of the recipient, including the layout of the room, specific furniture or knick-knacks and more. They do this to let the recipient know they are there with them, even though their communications are being received by me.

Messages about the Future

Loved ones in spirit who are guardian angels can also provide information about events which will be occurring in the future. They view these in the Hall of Records or are provided the information by the Archangels or God. Loved ones in spirit provide details to the affected parties through dreams and visions, as well as through communications with spirit mediums. It is very important to note that they cannot and will not show every occurrence that will happen in our lives. There are several reasons for this:

  • Some events are destined while others are based on freewill decisions and our current path. When we agree to life lessons in our soul contracts before we are born, they are written in outline form. Events are then orchestrated on earth in real time to help us learn those lessons. If we do not learn a particular lesson, circumstances will be repeated in different ways until we do. Therefore, some future events may change based on our freewill decisions.
  • When revealing glimpses of the future, guardian angels must be given permission to share these pieces of information. Permission is granted by the Archangels only when the information will not interfere with our life lessons.
  • If guardian angels showed us everything about our lives, there would be no purpose for us to be here. We all have lessons to learn which require us to make freewill decisions. They can attempt to assist us; however, they cannot show us everything because it may influence actions or reactions which are critical to our learning process.

Taking Comfort in Their Presence

Our loved ones in spirit, especially those who have volunteered to be guardian angels, love to help us with our lives. The love we share with them bonds us together through the hearts of our spirits. Even though they are enjoying their time in Heaven, they know life on earth can be challenging and they want to be there for us to assist in any way they can. Their presence in our lives is a comforting one, as it fosters the love between us and gives proof of our souls’ existence beyond life on earth. Pay attention to the signs and the patterns which reveal their presence in your life. Your angels and loved ones are there for you and are doing their best to provide guidance and opportunities for your spiritual growth.

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.

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.

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!

With Love and Light,

Life is a Journey of Self-Discovery

What an interesting and incredible journey life can be! As souls, we live many lifetimes learning lessons for our souls. We spend time in Heaven, and when the time is right, we make a decision to be reborn on the Earth. The divine knowledge stored in our souls is temporarily veiled as we make our way back to Earth for a journey of self-discovery. Each event and circumstance we experience is specifically designed to reawaken our souls to the divine knowledge within, to rediscover the truth of our existence at the core of our spirits.

Why do we suffer?

On the surface, the obstacles and difficult times may not seem to make sense. Why do we need to suffer? Why do we need to experience physical and emotional pain? What is the purpose behind the experiences that wrench our souls? It is not a divine experiment designed to see what effects pain has on us as beings, but a carefully selected series of events uniquely created for each being. These events are created to draw us deeper within to relearn who we are and to draw us closer to divine truths.

Accelerating our Growth

In Heaven, negativity does not exist as it does here on Earth. Our time in Heaven is a time of rest and learning, but not of great challenges. We agree to a lifetime on Earth to help accelerate the evolvement of our souls, which means, we agree to face challenges designed to reawaken us to the divine core within and to help us rediscover our reasons for existence.

Amazingly Sophisticated Orchestration

The soul contracts we make prior to being born on this Earth contain the lessons we agreed to learn in our lifetimes. Each soul contract is a unique listing of lessons for each individual. The details about how those lessons will occur is not determined until we are here on Earth. This is because we have free will. Each decision we make affects a multitude of actions and, therefore, creates a dynamic which requires real-time facilitation of lesson-learning situations. All of the situations are designed, directed, and changed in an incredibly sophisticated manner by powers higher than us and are managed according to the goals in our soul contracts. This complicated process weaves together our lives with the lives of others in order to help all of us learn separate lessons within each of the circumstances.

Overarching Goals

One of the overarching goals of life on Earth is to learn how to love ourselves and others during this journey of self-discovery of the divine within. We are all on different levels of evolvement, which helps with the lesson-learning process because our individual actions motivated by our soul’s level of evolvement are used to create situations which stimulate conflict, agreement, challenges, and triumphs. Loving and appreciating each other throughout the experiences of life can be a challenge in and of itself because of the divine knowledge veiled from us and because we may have a difficult time recognizing the bigger picture when it comes to negative events. By looking for the positive within negative events and knowing we are here to help each other, even if it is facilitated through trying circumstances, may provide more understanding and acceptance of what we go through and why.

Interconnectedness

Life really is an amazing journey of self-discovery made through the cooperative efforts of each and every one of us on Earth, as well as our support teams in Heaven. Even if awareness of how we are all interconnected is not readily understood by all, we are still one big family of beings sent here to help one another in our journey through life.

Namaste!

With much love and many blessings for all,

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!
