LIFE’S A BITCH BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE!

April snow 2019

SNOW is a FOUR-Letter-Word in my house. Typically I’m pretty chill about the weather but this winter has changed all that. I’m pissed! 

Living in and raising children in Minnesota has been divine. The people, schools, and seasons are amazing! Well, all but one season that is..winter. It’s not the cold that bothers me so much, it’s the ice and snow…and we have had so much of it this season. I know the entire planet is experiencing weird climate changes and they are not fun. 

Frankly, it’s made me a little grouchy today. I’ve held out on doing much posting on social media because I haven’t wanted my yucky vibe to wash over anyone or anything. My clients rescheduled due to the snow, ice, sleet, wind and thunderstorms so I’ve had some time to think.

The other day one of my kids borrowed my car and forgot to return the key. It was lost within said child’s room. As a result of that and the snow, I was late to a meeting and unfortunately, totally bitchy. 

I apologized to my client, a smart business owner and explained that I would be more relaxed in a few minutes. She said, “No problem, just be who you are.” I loved her response and thought…I’m not being who I are, I’m being how I are! 

Allowing your spirit to shine

So I’ve been pondering the art of moving from a heavy place emotionally speaking, to a light place. Not because I feel heavy right now but because through my work and my life in general, I meet people in various stages of grief. As a medium, I’m a conduit between worlds so am witness to some pretty glorious moments of forgiveness, clarity and closure. There are a few recurring powerhouse components that elevate and escalate the process. 

The pivotal factor is our willingness to change. 

Change is challenging for most of us, especially when it involves death, divorce, or any other emotional crisis. As a medium and intuitive coach my clientele includes people who have experienced at least one of the above in a big way.

Let’s face it, most of us have experienced some level of emotional crisis.

Because we have gone through or are in the midst of a crisis doesn’t make us special, it just makes us survivors of life’s bumps. Everyone experiences some level of tragedy and sadness and I am in no way playing that down.  Clearly, some wounds go deeper than others.

I am not a therapist and so not qualified to speak from a psychological standpoint. I speak from a spiritual standpoint.

The brilliant light of my soul

Finding a way to move through the pain and not be defined by it is vital. Knowing the darkness and choosing to move toward the light deepens the colors in our soul. Everything then has more flavor and brings greater delight.

pablo - 2019-03-31T145614.930

In my experience, when I  feel blue or depressed it is horrible and I find it difficult to see with any clarity. But we are all more than our feelings and emotions. This means we are not depression even though we may feel depressed. We are beings of light and when we are sad that light seems dull or even extinguished, but it is not.

When I remember that what I’m experiencing is just a moment in my life, I feel empowered. My energy is ignited, my thoughts fill me with light, and the light fills me with joy.

Inhale the beauty

So what’s the fastest way to get there?

Excerpt from The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition

For centuries musicians, philosophers, poets and the like have searched for the key to happiness with as much passion as the many scientists who study energy in its countless forms. What’s interesting is that happiness is an actual energy. If only they had all gotten together and read the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne, they may have found their answers neatly tucked within the pages.

Do you remember Eeyore, the cynical character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books? He’s Winnie-the-Pooh’s ever-glum, satirical, and doubtful donkey friend. In his eyes, nothing ever goes right, so as “luck” would have it, nothing much does.

And then there’s Pooh’s enthusiastic, energetic, optimistic—yet less-than-responsible—mischief-making tiger friend, Tigger. He loves to bounce around and thinks that whatever he does, he does best. He’s happy-go-lucky, and so as “luck” would have it, things repeatedly turn out well for him.

So what does this have to do with lightening our mood?

If we are willing to go with a more light-filled thought versus the dark ones, our mood is elevated. The higher the thought the more light. The more light, the more happiness and insights.

It’s true that what we see is what we get. This is not only a mind-set—it’s an energy-set. Our “luck” is simply a manifestation of our vibrational energy frequency. Our vibrational frequency is the level at which we radiate. It’s the vibe we radiate.

What’s your vibe?

Feelings and emotions

The higher the thought the brighter the light.

When we feel irritated by someone’s driving or attitude, just be as neutral possible. Neutral is of the light so this means you are getting closer to it!

Remember…

People see things as they are, not as we are. 

We are not our emotional state of being. We are souls made of light.

Our feelings show us how we are not who we are.

Being willing to lighten our thoughts lightens our emotional load. 

Being willing to change changes everything.

The spirit within

Our feelings and emotions don’t determine who we are, just how we are at the moment.

It’s true, life can be a bitch but we don’t have to be!

Here’s the Scoop about the Turkey on my Stoop!

IMG_0236

Do you like animals? They bring me such a tremendous sense of calm. During times of meaningful change, animals have appeared to me as signs from the Universe. Though the messenger may be small, the message seldom is!

Take this past Friday for instance!

Everything happens for a reason so when my neighbor sent me a text with a photo of a turkey sitting outside my front door, I knew the Universe was at work again. I had grown accustomed to receiving messages from the deer in my backyard, the dragonflies by my pool and the frogs on my windows but a turkey, to the best of my knowledge had never come calling.

IMG_0254

My week had been long and though I had been feeling a tad pushed around by my own career aspirations, it was ending on a high note.

The turkey was waiting for me when I arrived home over an hour later. Feeling a sense of adventure I entered my home through the back and tiptoed up to my front door, careful not to make noise. The turkey moved off my front step but immediately came back. When she turned her head and looked me in the eye, I felt nothing but peace.

Now and then she walked around a snowy patch on my sidewalk but always returned to stand by my front door. I looked for other turkeys but saw none. I put my five bags of groceries away (purchased in preparation for an upcoming snowstorm) and checked out what Google had to say about the spiritual meaning behind seeing a turkey. 

“Common Turkey Spirit Animal Meanings. Similar to the Jellyfish, the turkey spirit animal is a symbol of abundance. It is an encouragement to celebrate your resources that nourish your physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. … The meaning of the turkey also speaks about feminine energies that are at work in your life. Feb 21, 2017″ Google search 3-8-19

And this! “American Indians viewed all things – whether seen or touched – living or inanimate – as possessors of a spirit. Everything is saturated with sacred energy. All things deserve respect and honor.” Avia Venefica

When we begin to see animals as spiritual teachers and message couriers, it opens us up to a whole new world of insight.

pablo - 2019-03-09T140115.308

Since I couldn’t find my copy of “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews I headed back to the internet for more info.

I found that the turkey symbolizes such things as: the spirit of giving, sharing blessings with the community, abundance, harvesting the fruits of our labor, contentment and connecting with and honoring nature.

According to Marley Jamason, “You can cross paths with Animal Medicine messengers in the physical realm (AKA “real life”), in a dream, in a meditation, through thought, intuition, or via a video or image — it doesn’t matter how you encounter your spiritual messenger (though meeting with an animal messenger in person is always thrilling!)” Google search 3-8-19

I grinned then laughed! The night before I had stood in front of a sold-out audience of people waiting to hear what I had to say about intuition, spirits and spooks. The event was a tremendous success and I still felt the natural buzz I get from helping people understand the language of intuition and their connection with those-in-spirit.

I consider peace abundance and overall, have been feeling it deeply and more often than ever before. In the past few months I’ve been quoted in a few national publications and have made great strides in other areas of my writing career as well. I knew intuitively that my ignited energy was taking me somewhere good. 

Image-1 (28)

I’ve always loved and respected animals and considered them to be my friends. They are wonderful confidants and couriers of messages. As the meaning of the visit from my new turkey friend set in, I felt hugged from the inside out. 

A few minutes later, I walked from the kitchen to my front door and wasn’t at all surprised to see that the turkey had flown the coop. Her message delivered, she went on her way. 

Animal messages are the best and so are you. Thank you for reading my blog.

Just Breathe and Believe!

Every single one of us is worthy of the good stuff. We just have to believe in ourselves. Every day is a new day and chance to stand in our own energy and know our individual merit. 

img_9830

Consider this… We are giant magnets! Every thought we think, every word we say, and every feeling we have is projected out and magnetized back. Magnetize the good stuff by beginning your day in the light.

Try this in the morning! 

Feel like exercising that sixth-sense of yours this morning? You know what I’m referring to, your intuition! The perceptive, gut-aware, person that you are is ready to allow more of the good stuff in.  

Start the day by filling yourself with appreciation and you will light up every room.  That light will boost your intuition and help you magnetize that which you most desire.

image-1 (18)

In the length of time it takes to brush your teeth, (two minutes) you can infuse yourself with light. So as you brush your teeth each morning, think in terms of admiration, appreciation, gratitude, endearment, affection and light.

That two minutes sets the stage for your entire day. Isn’t your day worth it?

As you rinse your toothbrush, find and feel a memory of something memory- worthy. As you add toothpaste allow the recollection to flood your senses. As you brush your teeth admire, appreciate and love up the feeling of feeling good

Alternatively sink into one of these to start your day off in the light!

An Emotional Eclipse

 

 

 

Hello exciting New Year and Hello New Moon Solar Eclipse! New moons always mean a fresh start and eclipses bring big, bold, new beginnings externally as well as internally. This new year starts off with a bang as our vision to see an internal side of ourselves and others is sparked.

The cosmos do not disappoint! 

img_9303 (2)

 

On this the first anniversary of my mom’s transition into spirit I am filled with memories of her. For most children their relationship with their mom is one of love mixed with salt and pepper. I’ve learned that all relationships can be bitter mixed with sweet. 

For me on this day, I am flooded with contrasting emotions. I would love to say that I am so evolved that the memories are only of the last several months of her life, when things between us were the very best.

emotional anniver

But as I sit here in my cozy family room with my dog sprawled out on my lap, I feel what it was like to be 14-years-old curled up and sobbing in my bed. In the weeks prior she  told me I wasn’t a child she could mother. Back then, the way she felt about me radiated throughout the house. My awareness of her disdain colored my thoughts dark and suffocated my self-esteem.

Time has taught me patience so I now breathe, relax into how I feel and allow the feelings to wash away.

In my mind I am gently moving the tear-drenched-curls from my eyes and am telling myself a different story than the one I told myself back then.

Her rejection of me wasn’t really of me, it was her refusal of a part of herself. My mom was reacting to her own wounds. I deserved all the love in the Universe and received it through the kind acts of neighbors, relatives and friends.

rewrite your story

As I tell myself a different story about what went down, not an untrue story but one based on a different perspective, my heart warms and I am able to feel the light I’ve been filled with for the last 40-some-years.

Because I allowed myself to freely feel (and write) I’m able to remember with love the wonderful conversations my mother and I had during the last 24-months of her life.

spirit cell phone

We truly cannot pick the memories that arise. For me, several of them have been surprising, but we can choose what story we tell ourselves about what the memories mean. And that saved me today as it has before. I’m now able to feel my love for her fully because I allowed myself to quickly clear, emotionally speaking.

IMG_7804

I’ve been interacting consciously with the spirits around me  since I was a teen and have literally read thousands of people. I’ve noticed that there is a rhythm to the soul’s journey as well as a theme.

The people who are the happiest are not those who have sailed through life seemingly tragedy-free. Quite the contrary, the happiest people are the ones who shine a spotlight on the good stuff without ignoring the bad.

So today’s theme for me is a reminder to focus on the happier version of my story. This way, I can honestly write a happier ending to my childhood. After all, it ushered me into my now, where I am loved, and safe, and wanted.

So now, I’m completely filled with memories of my mom smiling, talking about her beloved books while sipping iced-tea. She is radiant and I am peaceful.

It’s okay to miss what we could have had in our relationships with those we love as long as it doesn’t blind us to what we do have.

I’m not only talking about this, I’m teaching it. We actually ARE the authors of the story our soul unfolds. Let’s be conscious of this!

Getting into the Holiday “Spirit”!

Adventure called life

The Holiday season is upon us. Yours may be loaded with family and friends, travel and gifts, food and love. Be sure to fill yourself up with the warmth of each moment and appreciate the feeling. It will bring more of the same.

divinely kissed

There are those for whom the holiday season is filled with memories of times and people gone from sight. For some, celebratory invitations may be a thing of the past. Please consider extending a smile, handshake, hug or even an invite to neighbors, distant relatives or friends.Cin

That-tickle-on-your-nose

We are influenced by our neighbor’s joys and sorrows because we are linked soul to soul. In the same way that we are all psychic, we are all empathic, meaning we are all able to feel the emotions of others.  So all the more reason to love our neighbors while exercising good personal boundaries.

Raquel Sophia and me

We live in captivating and transformative times. There’s what feels like an electric current running through us because so much is happening globally. On a soul level, we have outgrown old limited beliefs and are ready for a healthy shift.

An enlightened approach would be to cultivate balance both during the holiday season and these transformative times.

Set the stage. Breathe yourself into your higher-knowing-self.

The Heart Always Forgives

 

Love is food for the soul

When we lose a love in any way, for any reason, we may feel regret and reach for solace and/or forgiveness. 

When we have been betrayed, we implore our Higher Power, please help my heart to forgive.

But the heart always forgives; it’s the mind that becomes immobile. So trust your heart, engage your intuition and employ your mind though only when it’s steady.

When there’s a party going on in your head, but no one is in charge, engage your intuition by radiating love.

pablo (41) In that moment, let your mantra be….

My thoughts are no longer running away with me,

my intuition is ignited and I now radiate love!

Use your intuition as an anchor. Go in the direction of what is sound and feels good. 

May you find peace through intuition, love, and balance.
