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.

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

Light from Above

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

Discoveries Through Meditation

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

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

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

The Gala Celebration

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

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

Why Forgiveness Matters

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

Seeing Those You Might Not Want to See

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

Healing and Understanding

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

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

Managing Grief During the Holiday Season

Angel looking down

The holiday season is a time of celebration and joy with friends and family. For those who are coping with the loss of a loved one, it can be a painful experience, as memories arise of times past when loved ones were there, bringing sadness for the loss of their physical presence on Earth. There are wistful thoughts of how a loved one in spirit would have enjoyed a particular activity or laughed at the antics of our relatives or friends. It is a bittersweet time of sadness when the world around us is partaking in traditions designed to bring people together and celebrate the love we share with one another. For those who are grieving, it can feel as though there is a giant hole in our hearts as we keenly miss the presence of those who have crossed over into Heaven.

The First Year is the Hardest

When my father crossed over into Heaven several years ago, the first year was the hardest. Each milestone event, birthday, holiday, and family celebration brought a reminder of his passing. My heart would ache with the loss, even though I knew he was watching over me and my family from Heaven. He had passed in the month of September, which meant the holidays were right around the corner. I was not in the mood to celebrate, let alone drag out all of the decorations for the house and my Christmas tree. It was around that time I had received wonderful advice which helped me not only get through the holidays, but also ease the pain in my heart. The advice was to try to maintain my holiday traditions as much as possible and to create new ones in honor of my father. At the same time, if I felt the need to pull back from some of the other holiday celebrations, such as ones with friends or coworkers, it would be okay to do so if I did not feel up to it. Being alone on the big holidays was not a good idea, such as Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, because it would only lead to greater sadness.

Taking Time Out When Needed, But Keeping Traditions

That first year I did decline many of the holiday invitations I received from people outside of my family. My friends certainly understood my need for some quiet time away from the crowds. Instead, I read books and worked on art projects as a way of giving myself time to rest. I did decorate my house and my Christmas tree. Even though tears streamed down my face as memories of Christmases past brought the pain of the loss of my dad to the surface, I still pushed on and was very glad I did. The sadness would have been worse for me if I had not stuck to my traditions. The holiday season brings such joy and light to my household that the lack of any decorations would have magnified my grief.

Navigating the Holidays

My biggest dilemma was Christmas Eve. Several years before my dad passed, my parents divorced. Christmas Eve was the holiday I spent with my dad and Christmas Day I spent with my mom. Each year, my sister and I would go to my dad’s house on Christmas Eve where he would cook dinner and we would watch my dad’s favorite Christmas movie, “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.” My dad had a great sense of humor, and still does in spirit. He really loved that movie because it made him laugh, and when I say laugh, I mean body shaking with tears-in-the-eyes guffaw. It did not matter how many times he watched it, it would always crack him up as if he was watching it for the first time.

As my dad proudly chopped and prepped his special Christmas feast in the kitchen, he kept an eye on the movie and would start laughing right before his favorite lines would come up. It was great to enjoy this time with him. His infectious laughter and quoting of his favorite lines made my sister and I laugh even more. After dinner, we would finish watching the movie and open our presents together. On our way home, my sister and I would turn up the radio and sing Christmas carols at the top of our lungs. Laughter and songs filled the car as we marveled at the beautiful light displays on our ride home.

Creating New Traditions

The year my dad passed, my sister and I promised ourselves we would watch “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation” every Christmas Eve. I know he watches along with us from Heaven, still laughing and quoting his favorite lines. In addition keeping that tradition, we decided to attend my aunt’s Christmas Eve party that she holds every year for my mom’s side of the family. At first, my sister did not want to go. I urged her to go, as I did not think it would be a good idea for either one of us to sit at home alone with the pain of missing our father wrapping itself around our hearts. Both of us did attend the Christmas Eve event and found ourselves surrounded by loving and understanding family who hugged us, shared fond memories they had with our dad,and welcomed us into the fold of this new holiday tradition for my sister and me.

Healing of the Heart and Spirit

The ensuing years have brought healing to our hearts. We know he is with us in spirit, not just during the holidays, but every day. Your loved ones in spirit are there for you, too. They hear you when you think of them and when you speak of them, they read the notes you write to them, and they watch over you and your family and friends from Heaven.  

Honor Yourself and Your Loved Ones in Spirit

Even though the pain of losing a loved one can be overwhelming during the holidays, it is good to give yourself a break when needed and to maintain traditions when you can. Creating new ones that honor your loved ones in spirit is a magnificent way to keep them close in your heart with fond memories of good times spent with one another and the love you share. From Heaven, our loved ones in spirit share the holidays with us. They watch over us as guardian angels and love it when we recognize their presence in our lives through the signs they send.

Our Spirits Entwined

In honor of all of your loved ones in spirit, I wrote this poem. May it bring you comfort and love this holiday season:

Our Spirits Entwined
By Karen T. Hluchan, Spirit Medium

As holiday preparations get underway,
I walk beside you in spirit each night and each day.
Your pain, sadness, joy, laughter, and tears,
Are felt within my spirit with each passing year.
I know your heart better than mine,
As we will always be connected, our spirits entwined.
The view from above is glorious and grand,
I reach out from Heaven to gently clasp your hand.
It will be okay, I am alright,
I am here with you now, sharing my love with all of my might.
I send you signs to let you know I am near,
Through feelings and images, words whispered in your ear.
The songs you hear that remind you of me,
Play for a purpose in all that will be.
Our love did not end on the day that I died,
It continues from Heaven, so strong are the ties.
We are never truly parted, God does have a plan,
To bring blessings to you and our entire clan.
Uplift your heart when I am near,
And share beautiful memories, so close and so dear.
When I appear in your dreams, please know it is me,
I am there to help out, to help you to see.
Your thoughts I can hear when they turn toward our life,
You are my everything, my heart without strife.
Do not be sad, as forever we will be,
Joined in our hearts, you and me.
I am your guardian angel, so true and so near,
I watch over your life and all that is dear.
Thank you for your love and all that we share,
I am here for you, my love, I need you, I care.
I am not far away, just a thought is all that is needed,
To have me by your side, your call is heeded.
Be gentle with your heart, and know I am there,
For now and forever, our souls will always be paired.

With Love and Light,

Embracing Change as an Opportunity for Growth

butterfly illustrationMany times, I have expressed that life on Earth is about learning lessons for our souls. Challenging times offer many opportunities for growth, while at the same time, may open up new vistas that would not have been available unless we experienced changes in our lives. As human beings, we have a tendency to like routines. They are comfortable and often bring a feeling of safety because we know what to expect and know what is expected of us. When we least expect it, events may occur which throw our comfortable routines into what is perceived as chaos, such as a job loss or the ending of an important relationship. Major events such as these can initially be perceived as very negative; however, they can also be the catalyst for necessary and important changes, as well as lesson learning, in our lives that would not have come about without these events.

Fear of the Unknown

Resistance to change exists due to a fear of the unknown. Like routines, there is comfort to be found in that which we know. Just because you do not know what will come next, does not mean it will be negative. Taking a risk or trying something new can often lead to amazing discoveries and opportunities for happiness and satisfaction. Clinging to the past and familiar routines prevents growth that can come from venturing beyond your norms into new experiences, which is why our lives are sometimes thrown into chaos. There are times when we need to be spiritually pushed into change in order to grow as souls.

Reasons for the Changes

The events in our lives are orchestrated according to the soul contracts we made prior to being born on Earth. Soul contracts are agreements made to learn particular lessons designed to help us achieve the most growth for our souls while on Earth. They are high-level plans which describe the lessons, but do not describe how events will unfold on Earth. This is because we have the gift of free will to make choices about our lives. Therefore, events need to be organized in real-time based on the choices we make on a moment-to-moment basis. We may be presented with an opportunity to learn a specific lesson for our souls; however, due to the choices we make, we may miss the opportunity for growth. Another series of events will be orchestrated in the future to help us to learn the lesson we missed. This will occur until we learn the particular lesson, while we are also being presented with other lessons we need to learn.

Orchestrating Events

Every event on Earth is designed to help multiple people at once. It is an extremely intricate process which requires the lining up of an incredible amount of details to bring about the changes and challenges necessary for growth. All the actions and events are directed by our Heavenly Support Teams based upon our soul contracts. To see the amazing ways in which these synchronicities are lined up is staggering with its sheer volume of details, all aimed at helping us live our lives in ways that bring about the opportunities for growth agreed to before birth.

Evolution through Change

Even though events may initially be perceived as negative, there is always a positive reason for their occurrence, which is the evolution of our souls through growth. As human beings, it is easy to get caught up in the negativity or fears surrounding change. It is the human ego, which is where our fears originate, that tries to derail us with negative thoughts of doom and gloom. The human ego is gifted to us when we are born as a generator of obstacles we are meant to learn how to manage. The negativity issued by the ego is necessary on Earth to present us with challenges for our agreed-to life lessons. In Heaven, this type of negativity does not exist. We have it on Earth because this is where we come for accelerated growth of our souls.

When major disruptions occur in our lives, we can allow ourselves to become stuck in the negative or we can work through the issues knowing there is a positive reason for their occurrence. To break out of the rut of negativity, do your best to focus on the solutions instead of the problem. Define actions you can take and start working on them. Even though events may take you on an unanticipated path, these events can also lead to a brighter future. As an example of this, when I was laid off after fifteen years with a corporate company, I could have allowed myself to wallow in the disparity of the loss. Instead, I saw it as an opportunity to invest in myself and my future by writing my first book and going full-time with my business. It took a tremendous leap of faith to do this. I cannot say that enough. I was entering a period in my life that would require great faith, very hard work, and strong determination to succeed. Once I made up my mind to focus on the solution, I took immediate action. Within 24 hours of being laid off, I was writing my book, contacting publishers to figure out the best steps to take, and moving forward with the expansion of my business. To this day, I am grateful for those life-changing circumstances because they pushed me into a situation that brought about opportunities to follow my passion and share my gifts with the world on a much larger scale.

You, too, can make important changes to your life. When faced with challenging circumstances, look to solutions. Open your mind to the possibilities and let go of that which you cannot change. It is healthy to mourn the loss of that which is gone and to acknowledge your pain; however, getting lost in the sadness by keeping your focus there for an extended period of time will not bring about the changes calling to your soul.

Moving Forward

Our lives are constantly evolving. There is comfort to be found in the familiar; however, without change there is no growth. Embrace the changes, look to the solutions, and take steps to bring about the solutions. Doing so may require great leaps of faith and hard work; however, the rewards awaiting you can bring about the very circumstances your soul needs. Whether it is a higher understanding of life’s events, the fulfillment of your personal calling, inner peace, making a positive difference in the lives of others, or much more, change can bring about opportunities that answer the call in your soul to evolve in ways which usher in personal satisfaction, meaningful growth, and profound discoveries about you and the world around you.

Namaste and great blessings to you!

Communicating with Animals

Orange and White Tabby CatAnimals are highly intelligent beings who experience emotions, much like human beings. Both live and deceased animals communicate spirit-to-spirit, in the same way loved ones in spirit communicate with spirit mediums. This form of communication uses all of the earthly and extrasensory senses. Pieces of information are shared using images, sounds, feelings, tastes, and smells, just as human beings in spirit share information. It is a complex form of two-way communication which transcends earthly communication with its depth and symbolic representations pulled from the databank of experiences of the receiver, the spirit medium.

Pets in Heaven

When pets come through during a spirit medium reading, they show me images of themselves as they were close to the time of their passing. They indicate how they passed through physical indicators, such as pain in the area of my kidneys if they experienced kidney failure, or excessive tiredness, pain in the head, and a feeling of confusion if they had a brain tumor. This is similar to the way human beings who have crossed over share their symptoms with me about the way they passed. The pain I experience is nothing close to the level of pain they experienced because it is only an indicator, not a reenactment. In order to provide information which helps their loved one to identify them, animals provide images of their toys or collars, their favorite location or activities on earth, or people who are living that they love. Once the animals have been identified and claimed by the recipient, they share their love and express messages, such as thanks for the love and care they received in life or the assistance they received to cross over into Heaven. Feelings are transmitted, as well as thoughts which are automatically translated into the language I understand best, which is English. The automatic translation process is the same as it is when human beings in spirit come through who spoke a language other than English. I hear all of the messages in English; however, immediately prior to that the loved ones speak in their language to indicate to me they spoke a language other than English.

Interestingly, as with human beings in Heaven, animals on the Other Side can take the form of their younger selves once they have crossed over. I have seen images of dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, ferrets, birds, and more in the prime of their lives in Heaven, looking happy and often surrounded by loved ones who have already crossed over. Any physical pain or disabilities experienced in life are gone, and a time of rest, relaxation, and play are ushered in.

Live Animal Communication

Communicating with live animals works the same way it does with loved ones in spirit and animals in spirit. The transmission of information uses all of the senses and translations of thoughts are a two-way process. Meaning, information sent from the animal is communicated in a language the spirit medium understands and the information from the spirit medium is sent in a way the animal understands. It is an amazing process. By the way, animals can and do have a sense of humor. Just like humans, they experience a full range of emotions that would surprise many people.

Domesticated animals tend to be like young children with their mindset. They can be stubborn, even when you try to explain something to them. When placed in a situation they are not familiar with or that is confusing, their fears can take over, blocking out rational thoughts. This is especially true when visiting the veterinarian. Many pets do not like going to the vet, especially cats, just like there are people who do not like going to the doctor. Being poked and prodded is not a comfortable experience for them. Plus, there are many different animals and smells, including the smell of fear from the other animals. Do your best to comfort your pets and ease their fears using soothing words and tones. They feel your heart and the love you share with them. Visualize that love flowing from the heart of your spirit to theirs to help ease their worries.

The Special Roles of Animals in Our Lives

The pets in our lives provide much love, companionship, and comfort. However, there is much more to their presence on Earth. This includes animals in the wild. There is so much more to their existence than what appears to be on the surface. In addition to teaching us many lessons about unconditional love, friendship, and the cycle of life, animals have important spiritual jobs. Loved ones in spirit and the angels engage animals to help convey messages to human beings on Earth. If a particular animal is making its presence known to you on a repetitive basis, I recommend looking up the spiritual meaning of that animal. For instance, if you have been seeing many opossums lately, it may be time for you to let go of any angst about troubles in your life and wait for a better time to address the issues. This is because the opossum carries the spiritual message of “playing dead,” a tactic they use when they feel threatened. There are no coincidences. Animals do send messages through their presence in our lives. In other instances, loved ones in spirit may ask the animals to appear for a loved one on Earth as a sign of their love and presence. Cardinals, blue jays, and hummingbirds are often used as messengers due to their eye-catching colors, importance to the deceased or living, and because birds have often been used as actual messengers, as is the case with carrier pigeons. Loved ones in spirit can also direct pets to knock over certain photographs and objects to get our attention. After coming home from a group reading in which I was a participant, not the spirit medium, I noticed a small painting of my sister and I lying face down in my home office. My dad, who is in Heaven, directed one of my cats to knock it over to let me know he was around. My best friend, Michele, who is also in Heaven, had come through during the reading with a brief shout-out from my dad. This was his way of letting me know that even though he did not come through fully that evening, he is still around and sending his love.

Exploring the Natural World

If you are having a difficult time finding a spiritual meaning for an animal, look up the habitats and behaviors of the animal for clues about the message they are attempting to convey. For example, a skunk is a gentle and shy animal which digs burrows and emits an odoriferous spray as a defense mechanism. The presence of a skunk in your life may indicate that you or someone you know is on the defensive and possibly digging in their heels regarding an altercation. Knowing this may help you to recognize when to give yourself or someone else some room to cool down before attempting to resolve a situation.

Animals are Amazing

Animals are amazing creatures that help us in so many ways here on Earth. When you are hugging and loving your pets, know they, too, are sharing their love with you. They appreciate all you do for them. You do not need to be a spirit medium to convey your love. Pay attention to their needs through behaviors, notice the toys and food they prefer, and most of all, continue to show your appreciation for their presence in your life with loving attention.

Pay attention to the animals that make an appearance in your life, as they may be messengers from Heaven trying to help you with your life.

Namaste!

A Journey of Faith and Spirituality

What does it mean to have faith? What does it take to have it? On the surface, these questions seem to have simple answers. To have faith is to believe in God and all you need to do is make a decision to believe. However, there is much more to faith than what appears to be on the surface. It is actually a very personal and deep journey into the soul which comes about from many trying and joyous circumstances. Decisions about faith may come many times in your life as situations arise which require faith to make your way through them. It is not as simple as saying you have faith or even just deciding to have it. Living with faith means consciously making decisions to trust in the plans made for you by God, especially when circumstances rock you to your very core.

We are All Spiritual Seekers

As human beings we are on a spiritual journey. We are seekers on a path filled with pitfalls and celebrations which provide us with answers, more questions, angst, and peace. We decide for ourselves what we are going to believe and we act according to those beliefs. We make real-time choices every day based on the knowledge we have acquired, and in doing so, we reaffirm or fight against the concept of faith within us. Seeking and questioning is an important part of our individual journeys. We have been given the gift of free will to find our way back to God and the knowledge that has been veiled from us when we were born on this Earth.

My Personal Spiritual Journey

During my own spiritual journey, which has been decades in the making, I have learned to trust in the circumstances I face. Whether negative or positive, there is always a positive reason for them. It took me a long time to understand this. When I look back on my life and the way events have transpired, I can clearly see why certain experiences had to occur. The same can be said for you, as well. On a human level, I may not initially be happy about unexpected turns in my path which come about through negative circumstances; however, when they are in the midst of occurring, I remind myself there has to be a good reason for the change in my path. This helps me to work on remaining calm in the face of a storm. Feelings of disappointment or hurt may be there on the surface; however, they are quicker to dissipate when reminding myself that everything has a reason for occurring. When analyzing circumstances, there are times when I clearly see why my path was redirected and others in which I am still waiting for the answers. In the meantime, I accept the changes and move forward with trust in my Heavenly Support Team to lead me to the best opportunities and situations for me. Your Heavenly Support Team will do this for you, as well.

A Challenging Lesson

One of the hardest lessons I needed to learn was to have faith in the bigger picture for regarding the soul contracts filled with life lessons for me. These plans were agreed upon prior to my birth and include situations which will challenge me to learn and grow as a soul. As a human being, this knowledge has been veiled from me temporarily in order to provide optimum learning conditions. Within my heart, I had a very strong desire to share my life with a wonderful partner. This desire has led to many lessons about heartache, self-worth, perceptions about my life, and my life purpose. After years of looking outside of myself for love, I discovered the importance of loving who I am and accepting that I may or may not have someone to share my life with. It took a long time to get to that place; however, now that I have, I no longer feel the pressure to adhere to an ideal that may not be meant for me. When looking back at my life, I appreciate the lessons I learned while also seeing why a relationship with a significant other may have gotten in the way of the work I was being called upon to do as a spirit medium. This does not mean I will not have a partner or companion, it just means that up to this point, I can clearly understand why I had the experiences I did, including the life lessons.

Sharing the Blessings with You

By sharing this with you, I hope to help you to open your mind and your heart to the amazing opportunities heading your way. Even if your path has been challenging, it does not mean it will remain that way. Faith was a hard-earned and worthy gift to have received. It came from experiences both big and small which reinforced that God really is there for me, and that no matter what happens, I am on the right path for me.

Faith is believing in God and the soul contracts you made for this lifetime. It is believing there are positive reasons for negative circumstances and trusting in the circumstances you find yourself in. It is about forgiveness of the self and others and, most of all, it is about actively accepting the loving guidance from above.

You have all of the tools you need to reach a similar place in your life. It takes work and reminders. It takes forgiveness and getting up again after a setback. Believe in yourself and trust in the plans tailored for you to become the best soul you can be in this lifetime and beyond. God will light your way. Pay attention to the signs and listen within for instructions regarding your next steps. If you are having a difficult time understanding the instructions, take a step back. Meditate on the answers or calmly wait for clearer messages. For an entire year the only message my guys and gals in Heaven would give me was “move forward without fear” whenever I asked about my life path. This was a faith-building lesson to learn how to trust in the circumstances I was in because they were helping me every step of the way. I followed the instructions from my Heavenly Support Team, even when I was struggling to keep the faith. Today, I can look back and see just how beautifully they organized the various experiences of my life and how far I have come.

Sending much peace and clarity your way, as well as prayers for you to find the faith within the heart of your spirit.

Namaste!

Can Loved Ones in Spirit See Us From Heaven?

path to the beachPeople often ask me if loved ones in spirit can see us after they have crossed over into Heaven. The short answer is yes; however, there is much more to a soul’s existence in Heaven beyond seeing events on Earth. Through the countless communications I have received from beings in spirit, I have learned a great deal that I would like to share with you about our existence beyond life on Earth.

From Physical Body to the Soul’s Energy Form

Once our loved ones in spirit cross over into Heaven, their existence changes in profound ways. They are no longer hampered by the physical body they had on Earth. Any physical pain they experienced is gone as the soul in pure energy form. The soul moves forward to its next destination, Heaven, which is the home base of all souls. Even though souls are in energy form, they often mirror the way they looked in life. This familiar form helps souls to transition into their new existence in Heaven in a comforting way. Once souls have acclimated to the heavenly plane, they can alter their appearance. Loved ones in spirit often show me they have opted to take the form of their younger selves, or an age in which they were happy.

Guides for New Arrivals

The newly arrived are often paired with an angelic guide or loved one in spirit who has already crossed over in order to help with the reorientation process. The guides teach or remind the new arrival of how he or she can visit loved ones on Earth, as well as how to send signs alerting those on Earth of his or her presence. Many people report unusual occurrences when a loved one passes, such as seeing a loved one in spirit in their dreams or even seeing them standing by their bedside in energy form around the time of his or her passing. In addition, they may send signs to let you know they are in Heaven. It could be a visual sign, such as the one my great aunt received when she asked her sister where she was after she passed. My great aunt was cleaning out her closet at the time and a book fell at her feet from the shelf above. The book’s title had something to do with time in Heaven. Other signs include feeling a loved one in spirit’s presence, or smelling a scent that reminds you of them. There are many ways in which they will send signs, and they will utilize all of your senses to do so. This is because the method of communication across dimensions works in this way.

Access to the Past and the Future

As for seeing the events unfolding on Earth, loved ones not only have access to current events, but also past and future events. Loved ones in spirit visit us often because they love us and want to help us. They do give us privacy during those ultra-private moments in our lives; however, your loved ones in spirit are around you much more often than you think. As for events from the past, they are able to retrieve and view experiences from the past from our Akashic records, which are the records of all that was, is, and will be for each soul in existence. If loved ones are in need of perspectives to help us with our lives, whether it is to achieve understanding from events from the past or to look into potential future events with which they can assist, they will retrieve the records with the approval of the Archangels who oversee the Hall of Records.

Still the Same Soul, but with a Higher Perspective

It is important to note the perspectives about life on Earth change after arrival in Heaven. Once loved ones in spirit experience the review of their lives, they gain a higher understanding of why events occurred the way they did. The veil that obscured the knowledge of existence for them while in human form is removed, opening up comprehension of the vast inner-workings of our lives as human beings and our existence beyond life on Earth. Within, they are the same soul; however, they have a higher understanding and knowledge which helps them to view situations objectively, as well as grow as a soul through divine awareness. Which is why, when loved ones in spirit come through to communicate with those on this plane, they often indicate they are at peace. Because of the understanding they have attained, they no longer experience anger or upset. This is also true for the way people on Earth are handling situations since their passing. They may not like the way a loved one on Earth is behaving; however, due to their divine knowledge, they know why events are occurring in a certain way. It all has to do with lessons for our souls. They are not angry, but can be saddened when someone is behaving in a manner which hurts others. The situations, though, are out of their hands. They cannot control how people behave. They can only watch over situations and hope for the best. There are times when they can step in to help from the Other Side; however, more often than not, they are not allowed to interfere, especially if important lessons need to be learned.

What to Do with Belongings

As for the handling of their belongings, loved ones in spirit often convey that they would like items to be distributed in a fair way. It is unfortunate when people on Earth behave in a selfish or greedy way over the legacies left by loved ones who have crossed over. They do not like to see families torn apart by belongings or money. Even though they are aware of the lessons tied into these situations, they still hope loved ones remember it is more important to cultivate and nurture the relationships they have with one another through fair distribution, rather than hurtful actions driven by greed and selfish behaviors.

Loved ones in spirit also often state they do not want loved ones on Earth to feel compelled to keep every object they ever owned because the objects are not them, they are only things which loved ones in spirit no longer need. Keeping objects with historical importance or positive memories is good, as long as they do not overload your home. I have had loved ones in spirit ask their relatives on Earth to donate that which is no longer needed to charities because they prefer their belongings to go to someone who can use them.

Heavenly Communications

All in all, our loved ones in spirit remain an important part of our lives, even though they have crossed over into Heaven. They are aware of events on Earth and do what they can to help us on our journeys here. There are many ways in which you can remain open to the communications they send, including learning how spirit-to-spirit communication works. While it differs from the way we communicate with each other on Earth, it is a language built into our souls which can be reawakened with knowledge and an openness to the extraordinary within the seemingly ordinary.

Namaste!

Glimpses of Heaven

Sunset on the Ocean

People often ask me, what is Heaven like and what are my loved ones doing up there? As a Spirit Medium, I have the unique ability to communicate with those on the Other Side, and in the process, they often show me glimpses of Heaven.

Our universe is much bigger and more diverse than most people on Earth can fathom. There are other worlds and dimensions which we travel to as souls for unique learning experiences. Our home base is Heaven, which is the starting point from which we are created and it is the place we return to after our many adventures to other worlds and dimensions. As souls depart for the Earth and other destinations, other souls return to be welcomed home.

Heaven is not only our home base, but it is also the place where we rest and recuperate after our adventures. It is a place of healing, love, knowledge, and learning. It is a hive of activity with beings coming and going, beings actively involved in the inner-workings of Heaven, magnificent reunions with gala parties for the recently returned, lifetime reviews, and much more.

Arrival in Heaven

Upon arrival in Heaven, we are greeted by a welcoming Angel or loved one in spirit who proceeds to help us become re-oriented to Heaven. Our guide helps us to navigate our way through Heaven and to visit loved ones on Earth to see the events occurring since our passing. Many in spirit are in attendance for our memorial services and life celebrations. Until we are ready to visit our loved ones on Earth on our own, our guides stay with us. Older souls are much faster at being able to communicate on their own across dimensions. Younger souls can take classes in Heaven to help them learn how to communicate via their spirits, send signs, appear in dreams, and manipulate energy on Earth to move objects, and more.

Creating Your World

Heaven truly is what we make of it. Resources are only limited by our minds and the levels we reached in our soul’s evolvement. We can create homes using thought and they can be whatever we want them to be. For instance, you can have a quaint cottage by a lakeshore or a majestic castle with many rooms. Whatever you would like your personal slice of Heaven to be is what it is. Beautiful imagery of homes and collective spaces, which are the collaborative efforts of many to create environments, have been shared with me, including 1940s nightclubs in Harlem, New York, Victorian-era towns and cities, stunningly beautiful parks with elegant flowers and trees, ancient temples from Atlantis and Lemuria, and much, much more. Often, loved ones in spirit show me the homes they grew up in recreated in Heaven, as well as dream homes with glorious views of mountains, gleaming bodies of water, and rolling hills with amazingly green grass. The colors up there are gorgeous and much more intense than they are on Earth.

We also have the power to control our personal appearance in Heaven. I have frequently seen loved ones in spirit, including pets, as the younger versions of themselves enjoying their time in Heaven. We usually opt to look like we did on Earth because that is what we are used to; however, it is usually the younger versions of ourselves in our prime.

It is my impression that the level of what you can do in Heaven and where you reside correlates with the level your soul has reached with its evolution. For example, a younger soul who committed crimes on Earth because they have not yet learned the way of love, do not have the same abilities and access to certain areas of Heaven. In addition, there are many spiritual hospitals for these souls, as well as institutions of learning to help them to better comprehend the true purpose of their existence. Older souls not only have greater expertise, but also greater access. They are free to create what they wish and can travel to more locations in Heaven and beyond.

Activities in Heaven

In Heaven, time does not run on the same cycles as it does on Earth. I have not yet been provided with an equivalent measure, and this may be because one does not exist or that it is to remain a mystery from humankind for now. However, I do know we have plenty of time up there to explore a whole host of activities.

After a lifetime on Earth, we often need time to recover from the rough and tumble ride we encountered. All of our physical ailments automatically disappear because our souls are no longer housed in a physical body. Our minds and souls also receive healing. Those in need of deep healing have shown me themselves in the Spiritual Hospital, which is much like a mental health hospital on Earth with angels in attendance to facilitate the healing process. As on Earth, there are inpatient programs and outpatient programs depending on the needs of the soul. As healing occurs, these souls are gradually integrated into existence in Heaven in order to fully enjoy the paradise of Heaven’s offerings. Those who have healed or are ready to fully enjoy their time in Heaven, often send me images of themselves relaxing and participating in their favorite pastimes, such as fishing, creating art, and spending time with people and pets who have crossed over before them. Because of the love shared between souls, loved ones in spirit often visit their friends and family here on Earth to see how they are doing. They are allowed to help in certain ways with our lives through the sending of signs and messages, as well as taking part in events with the approval of the Archangels. They cannot, however, alter the soul contracts we agreed to prior to birth. Because of this, it may sometimes seem as if God, the Archangels, and loved ones in spirit are not helping you. In actuality they are because they are helping you to fulfill the lessons you agreed to learn.

Because our souls continue to exist and grow, Heaven offers opportunities to learn new skills and meet other souls, similar to the way we can on Earth. Images and information has been sent to me during readings of loved ones in spirit taking classes in music and art, as well as spirit-to-spirit communication and how to work with the energies on Earth and in Heaven. Many times, I have seen younger souls who have passed meeting new souls and forming relationships with them.

In Heaven, we can also volunteer for jobs. They are not like jobs on Earth. You choose what you would like to do, such as becoming a guardian angel, a muse, or greeter at Heaven’s gates. Many souls enjoy being of service and Heaven offers many opportunities to bring to your spirit what you need most.

The Hall of Records

Within our magnificent home base of Heaven, there is a Hall of Records which contains information about everything that was, is, and will be for each of our souls. The files, which are referred to as the Akashic Records, contain our soul contracts for each past and present lifetime, as well as every detail of the lifetimes we have lived and are living, as well as information about future events for our souls. The future events are written in outline form and can be updated depending upon the actions we take in our current lifetimes. This is because of free will. There are events which are scheduled to occur in alignment with agreed-to soul contracts; however, the minute details may not be written yet due to constantly changing conditions here on Earth based on the decisions we make.

When I am shown the Hall of Records, I see a large, white Parthenon-style building with a wide set of stairs leading up to a landing with six regal columns. Scattered throughout the image are people dressed in many different styles of clothing, as well as scholars and attendants in comfortable white or cream colored tunics and gowns. Past life information can be accessed within the Hall of Records in an interactive manner, which allows visitors to delve into the past to retrieve information in a way that immerses them in the experiences.

The Archangels, who are tasked with overseeing everything having to do with mankind and Earth, retain control of the Hall of Records and work with many orders of Angels to help facilitate events on Earth which coincide with soul plans and lessons for all on Earth. Guardian angels, some of whom are people who lived on Earth who volunteer to help their loved ones, are also given tasks and permission to send communications by the Archangels. For those who volunteer to be guardian angels to loved ones on Earth, they are given specific access to the Akashic Records for those they are watching over. They are allowed to communicate approved information through dreams, signs, and spirit to spirit communication – either directly or through a Spirit Medium.

Epiphanies from Heaven and the Universal Mind

Heaven is an imagination works, or conglomeration, where all ideas are hatched and sent through epiphanies to souls meant to bring them to fruition based on their soul contracts. The idea hatchery is often referred to as the Universal Mind. The ideas, which come from the Creator, are disseminated at the appropriate time and place by God and the Archangels. It is then the job of the Archangels to assign a muse to share the ideas with the beings destined to bring the ideas to fruition on Earth or in another world or dimension.  Specific orders of angels, as well as loved ones in spirit who have volunteered to serve as muses, are responsible for the actual transmission of the ideas to the matching soul. There is a significant amount of real-time organization which takes place in order to facilitate this process. Many events and circumstances need to be devised at the proper times in order to bring ideas to light with the proper resources for the recipient.  It is an incredible process which is also employed for the events and circumstances in our daily lives, in which we are placed in situations which encourage optimum opportunities for working through the lessons we agreed to in our soul contracts.

Why Do We Leave Heaven?

People ask why do we leave Heaven if it is so wonderful? We leave to accelerate the growth of our souls. The lack of negativity in Heaven provides a certain kind of learning that is missing the great challenges life on Earth or what other worlds may offer. We come down here for strong and fast lessons, but then return to Heaven when our lessons have been completed. There are very important reasons why we need to be here and why we have the experiences we do. One of the most important is to find our way back to the love within from which we were created. Once we do return to Heaven, we have time to rest and enjoy activities we love while waiting for our loved ones on Earth to join us at their designated time. The love we share with one another keeps us connected across all dimensions because love is at the heart of our very existence. Once we are reunited with our closest soul groups, we decide where and when we would like our next adventure to begin.

Namaste!

How Heavenly Beings Help You Every Day

Traveler admiring the sea viewHave ever had a hunch or received a thought that let you know in advance of an event that is going to occur? Have you ever found yourself in the perfect place at the perfect time? There are no coincidences in this world. Whether you are consciously aware of it or not, your Heavenly Support Team, made up of God, the Archangels, guardian angels, past spiritual masters, spirit guides, and loved ones in spirit, help you with your life every day. They do this through repetitive external signs, strong urges, and messages sent through the invisible network that connects all of us to them, as well as every being.

Magic Occurs Every Day

There is magic in this world. Our guys and gals in Heaven help to orchestrate events in our lives in order to help us to better navigate this world. They do it because they love us and want to help us. Even though they are in Heaven, they know life on Earth can be challenging. They enjoy the benefits of Heaven, but also use their wonderful access to knowledge about our lives from the Akashic Records in the Hall of Records to give us a heads up or steer us into situations which will benefit us and those around us. We are not alone in this world. We have entire teams of beings who help us from the Other Side.

Opening Up to the Amazing Guidance

To access this extraordinary information, you need to remain open to the possibilities. The more you live your life in the present and pay attention to the world around you, the more you will receive the signs and messages, as well as understand the guidance. Moreover, learning about how your Heavenly Support Team communicates with you will help you to decipher what they are trying to share with you. The language of spirit-to-spirit communication is one of the senses, both earthly and extrasensory. We are all born with these earthly and extrasensory senses. You can learn how to access them by educating yourself about the language of the soul.

All Senses are Utilized – Earthly and Extrasensory

On Earth, we rely mainly on our physical senses – seeing, feeling, hearing, smelling, and tasting – to navigate the world around us. The stimulus around us sends signals to our brains to help us interpret the information. For example, when you smell a rose, the scent molecules your nose inhales send signals to the receptors in your brain. Simultaneously, your eyes see the rose and, if you reach out and touch it, your fingers feel it. All of this information is transmitted to your brain, pieced together, and filed within your mind to form a memory. When you encounter this flower again or have an experience that triggers this memory, your mind brings forth the files providing recognition of this previously encountered flower.

Extrasensory senses mirror our physical senses; however, the information is received internally through the invisible network that connects us all. Instead of external stimuli, the information is seen within the mind’s eye, felt within the body, heard within the mind, and smelled and tasted internally. There is an additional extrasensory sense, which is claircognizance or clear-knowing. This consists of information that is known within and emerges without previous thought.

Many people receive psychic or intuitive messages; however, they may not understand where the information comes from. Awareness of how the information is being received helps in the educational process about spirit to spirit communication along the invisible network which connects us to all beings in existence.

Telepathic Connections

The easiest way to give a basic understanding of spirit communication is to think of it as a telepathic connection. When you are very close to another human being or animal on earth, you can receive impressions which may provide insight into the other person and what they may be doing at a particular time. The energetic impressions and information is sent through the invisible network at the heart of each of our spirits. The same is true for spirit to spirit communication. The information is received through your internal extrasensory senses. Because the means of communication differs from earthly means (speaking and body language), there are deeper nuances and symbols which are used to convey information. It is like an abstract puzzle which needs to be pieced together using all of your earthly and extrasensory senses.

Messages You Hear – Clairaudience

You may receive a thought that does not feel like it originated from you. Most of the time, it comes through in your own voice, but you know it is not a thought that originated from you.  Other times, it comes through in the voice of a loved one in spirit or an angel, which you may or may not be able to identify. The thoughts you receive are there to provide guidance and assistance with events in your life ranging from trivial to important. The messages never contain information about hurting yourself or others, as your Heavenly Support Team is all about love and positive assistance. It may be a one-word message or it may be a string of words providing guidance or direction about a situation you are experiencing. For example, when I was interested in purchasing a stand for my television, I kept hearing the word “Target.” I knew my guys and gals in spirit were directing me to go to the Target store to purchase the stand. I did purchase one on sale and in the next week, the price dropped even more. As an added bonus, I was able to collect the difference from the store for the deeper sale price.

Music that plays in your head is another way loved ones in spirit and the angels send you messages. When it happens, look up the lyrics. You can Google them by typing in the word “lyrics” and whatever words you are hearing. There is a message within those lyrics for you. Again, your Heavenly Support Team will never send messages telling you to hurt yourself or anyone else. Pay attention to what you were thinking about prior to the music playing in your head. If you were just wondering about a time frame for an event and you hear a song with a time or season reference, such as the Monster Mash (October) or Hot Fun in the Summer Time, they are giving you a heads up about when it will occur.

Getting a Feeling – Clairsentience

You may experience strong and repetitive urges to take positive action. When your guys and gals in spirit do this, they are trying to help steer you into a positive situation for you. For example, I kept getting a very strong urge to paint my bathroom as if you were immersed in the Caribbean Sea when you walked in. It was a project I had wanted to do, but the urge became so strong that I could no longer put it off. While I was in the middle of the project, one of my beloved pets crossed over to the Other Side. Painting a beautiful image is a form of meditation for me, and my guys and gals in spirit knew I needed to have a large project to work on to help me through the grieving process, and it did. There is a lot of love worked into the murals I painted and I know my Heavenly Support Team helped by providing healing and love while I painted.

There are other times in which you may have an urge to go to a specific location, such as the grocery store, only to run into a friend you have not seen in a long while, but had been thinking about. When you remain open to life, you can experience many wonderful adventures.

Seeing a Sign – Clairvoyance

Your Heavenly Support Team may also place repetitive visual clues in front of you to help you with your path. Years ago when I was thinking of heading back to college at night while working full-time, I started receiving post cards and mail from a nearby college. I had not applied for any colleges, nor did I ask for information to be sent. I also kept seeing billboards and references to this college on people’s cars, as well as verbal references which could not be mistaken. After looking into the college, it turned out to be an excellent option for me to take accelerated night courses. Your guys and gals in spirit do this for you, as well. They have the ability to place items in front of you and orchestrate events in such a way that it is hard to ignore.

How to Learn More

Reading books about intuition and spirit communication, also known as mediumship, as well as taking classes, will help you learn about and make the most of the ways your Heavenly Support Team communicates with you. An open mind and an open heart, accompanied by knowledge, will open up amazing sources for assistance with your life path, as well as continued relationships with those who have crossed over into Heaven, and much more. Enjoy the incredible connections with your Heavenly Support Team and the wonderful ways in which they help you every day!

Namaste!

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

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

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

How Do Spirits Move Objects?

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

Why Do Spirits Move Objects?

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

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

Personal Cases of Missing Jewelry

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

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

Other Ways Spirit Moves Objects

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