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.

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

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

How Loved Ones in Spirit Communicate

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

Extrasensory Seeing

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

Extrasensory Hearing

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

Extrasensory Feeling

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

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

Extrasensory Tasting and Smelling

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

Unique Details for Soul-Healing Experiences and Guidance

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

Physical Distance is Not an Issue

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

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

Just as Powerful

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

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

Communicating with the Archangels

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

Love is the Key Element

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

Sending much love and many blessings to you!

Managing Fears of the Unknown

Statue of an Angel

Each day when we awaken, we do not know what the day will bring. We have ideas about how we would like it to go; however, there is no guarantee it will unfold according to our plans. As human beings, we have the tendency to take comfort in knowing what to expect, in routines, and that which is familiar to us. When unexpected events occur, it may stir feelings of dread, upset, or fear, or on the other hand, it may bring about feelings of delightful surprise, astonishment, or happiness. Changing circumstances and events are an inevitable part of our lives. The world is constantly in motion, as are our lives. The decisions we make each day set off a series of reactions and effects which, in turn, create more reactions and effects which ripple out to touch the many situations and people we encounter. All of us are on our own unique journey; however, we are all connected with one another through the hearts of our spirits.

Fearing the Unknown

In essence, we truly do not know what will come next in our lives. There are some events which are destined to occur; however, when and how they will come about depends on the decisions we make and the lessons we learn. There are times when fear of the unknown causes us to attempt to pause our progress due to indecision about which path to take. The choices laid before us may be difficult to choose from because staying where we are may not be the best option and choosing a different path requires a leap of faith that all will work out well. However, the voice of the human ego, which is the seat of all our fears, tends to stoke the fires of uncertainty, leading to worrying thoughts which pause our progress. The negative and persistent presence of the human ego in our thoughts was put there as a challenge. It provides the illusion of separation from God, Heaven, and our divine plans. Instead of allowing the human ego to govern our lives, we can take steps to learn how to recognize it and move past it.

Redirect Your Attention

When faced with a dilemma, instead of allowing your mind to play out all the worst-case scenarios, redirect your attention to the choices at hand. If you have time, try to objectively examine and research your options. Write lists of pros and cons about each path to see which balances out for the better. You can talk with trusted advisors; however, the decision you make will be up to you. Many of the situations we face require a leap of faith; however, that does not mean you need to jump in without knowledge or forethought. The key is to try to make educated decisions in an objective way.

Leaps of Faith

In my own life, I have had quite a journey of faith which required the management of fear of the unknown from the human ego and acquirement of absolute trust in my circumstances. It was a challenging journey at first, as I had to let go of all I thought I knew and wanted in order to let go to make way for what was meant to be in my life. This meant letting go of the desire to control outcomes and focusing on the present, knowing I would be led into beneficial situations or they would come to me. This does not mean that everything would be rosy and wonderful. That would be unrealistic. It means being open to circumstances, no matter what they are, with the perspective that they are designed to help me become a better soul and a more effective person, as well as to allow me to help others through similar circumstances. Challenges can and do come into my life, and I do my best to manage them. I, like you, have my own life lessons to learn and I continually strive to improve the various aspects of me that need work. The human ego with its fears, regrets, and worries is an aspect of being human that remains with us for our entire lives. It can be managed, but it will not go away entirely, which is why learning how to recognize its presence and determining whether concerns are real or generated as a challenge are important to your state of mind, the progress you make in your life lessons, and your spiritual journey.

Everything will be Alright

One very important aspect I have learned from the repeated messages from my guys and gals in heaven is that everything will be alright. This message comes through with great regularity not only for me, but for others. As human beings, we can waste so much time worrying about what will be that we often lose focus on what is. When focusing on the mundane matters of life, we lose focus on the much more important aspects of why we exist and why we are living a life on earth.

Our lifetime on earth is a short journey in the entire existence of our beings. We are here to learn hard and fast lessons we could only learn here, and we are to help one another through the process. There is a balance of negative and positive. Even when it seems there have been more bad experiences than good, it helps to keep in mind there are positive reasons for negative circumstances. Often, it is the powerful lessons behind the situation which drive the occurrence of events. By searching for the positive reasons, you can achieve more understanding about the events of your life. This can lead to a calmer state of mind and a releasing of fears of the unknown, as you will begin to see the beneficial patterns which have been occurring all along.

Namaste!

With Love and Light,

Synchronicity: How Events are Facilitated on Earth with Divine Timing

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

Soul Lessons

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

Worrying About Outcomes

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

Divine Intervention

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

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

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

Making the Most of Our Time

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

Namaste!

With Love and Light,
