Clairvoyant Readings

Soul to Soul Readings

I wanted to chat with you a little bit about Soul to Soul readings. You might be asking, “What is that Mari?” Well, they are different than a regular psychic or mediumship reading and are really beneficial when a client is struggling in their life. Essentially, how I view Soul to Soul readings is that the medium will connect with the soul of the client through a merging of energies as a way of gleaning answers. Yes, I know that sounds weird, but stay with me. Once they have made that connection, the medium is able to see and feel what that person’s soul needs. It could be what that person needs to be doing right now, what their soul purpose on this earth is during this lifetime, or a variety of other things. This type of reading may be a little newer and perhaps you might not have even heard of it before. But, trust me when I say that sometimes this type of reading is just what the doctor ordered when you have a lot of “stuckness” or you just feel lost.

I would recommend a Soul to Soul reading when you are wondering these types of things: What should I be doing in my life? Or, if you have a feeling like there’s something you’re supposed to be doing but you just don’t know what it is. Or if you ever have that “soul itch” and it’s like you’re spinning your wheels but not getting anywhere. This type of reading is also helpful if you need some specific advice about a situation that keeps happening over and over or is of a more spiritual nature. In all these instances the Soul to Soul reading would be very beneficial. Sometimes during a Soul to Soul reading your past lives make an appearance. When the medium is doing this type of work it’s all about connected energies. And, as we know, all of our energy and lives (past and present) are intertwined. So, if your medium is doing a Soul to Soul reading with you and a past life comes up, it’s because whatever happened or was unfinished in that past life has a direct impact on your current life. This also usually means something there needs to be worked on and corrected during this lifetime. I know this may sound overwhelming but just remember you only need to keep taking one step forward every day. That’s all anyone can do.

We are all energy and, as such, this energy is always changing. There are always things to work on, things to change and to evolve to move to a higher soul level of consciousness. It may sound daunting but as long as you keep moving forward then I feel like you are doing your job. All you, or anyone, can expect is to keep making progress at whatever state you’re at. Some days it feels like you’re not making any progress at all. The next day you may feel like you’ve moved ahead only a foot even if you expected to move a mile. The bottom line is with these type of soul readings, it gives you additional insight and a greater connection to your soul that will help you move forward. Another benefit of the Soul to Soul reading is that by connecting the energy of the medium to the client there is a type of healing that occurs. It’s almost as if when you connect to the soul of another and you give the reading, healing to both parties happens. It is almost like a soul catharsis. It may be hard to explain or understand if you haven’t been through it, but I can tell you after giving these readings there is a change in the client and even sometimes in the medium. After connecting to the energy of the divine it would be hard to not feel a shift in your soul. As the amazing medium, mentor and teacher, Tony Stockwell has said before, we are like the Soul Therapist, which is actually really beautiful. With all the endeavoring we Lightworkers do, I know we are only barely even skimming the surface of the soul and there’s so much more for us to learn. I want to encourage you-if you feel stuck in your life or need some answers to some deeper more profound questions-to seek out someone who does the Soul to Soul reading. I think you will be very surprised and pleased at what you come to discover.

Let’s talk about fear. We all encounter it, but I am talking about fear of your own success. When working as a medium, trust is the most important thing you can possibly have. I know it sounds obvious, but unless you trust what you’re getting from Spirit, you can get all in your head and cannot get a clear message. I find this to be the most difficult hurdle to cross for new students. Everyone says to me, “How do you know it’s from Spirit and not from your own mind?” With practice, you’re able to distinguish between your own thoughts and things that are coming in externally from Spirit. But the only real way you can do that is to let go of your fear and allow Spirit to work with you. When fear is in the way it makes this almost impossible.

This can be applied in many aspects of our life, not just mediumship. People are afraid to step out of their box or comfort zone, to do things that their soul really wants them to do. Everyone’s been told by other people in their life or their family/friends that they should do this or they should have this kind of job etc. But, only each individual’s soul knows what is actually correct for them. People sleepwalk through life – going to work, going to school, or taking care of kids without ever really touching what their soul yearns for. I feel the most sad for these people. Maybe you are one of them. But I can guarantee if you’re reading this blog, your soul is ready for an awakening. I congratulate you on finally listening and taking the next steps. So keep reading….

I believe that everyone is on this earth to do something. I truly am convinced that whatever gifts you have, you are here to use them to better mankind and help others. I realize this sounds incredibly trite. But honestly, if we’re not here to make a difference in the lives of others and the elevation of humanity then what are we here for? I know that fear is scary. I work with so many clients who stay firmly planted in their heads because the fear will not let them move where their soul wants to take them. I understand. I’ve been like that myself. But you must realize that you are in this incarnation, in this body, in this particular life, only once – you only get one chance. I do believe in reincarnation and feel we get many chances to live over and over again. But, this is as different people. We only get this one chance to be who we are now. You’ve heard all the commercials: Nike “Just do it” or “Feel the fear and do it anyway”. If something sounds cliché usually it’s because there’s some truth to it. I encourage everybody that’s reading this blog to really take some time to ponder this idea. Just take 5 or 10 minutes to sit with yourself. Sit in a quiet place, or walk in nature, and try to get out of your head. What that means is try to let go of what’s in your head and drop down into your body or soul self. I believe you can feel your soul, your spirit more in your heart center, but definitely not in your head.

Try to get into your body and feel what it’s telling you. Not about its aches and pains but more about what will nourish your soul. If you jump back into your head and start hearing “oh you should do this, you should do that” then you know it’s not your soul. It’s just the voices of all the people that you’ve met over your lifetime telling you what you “should” be, which is not necessarily what you were meant to be. Know that you are an eternal being and that you can actually do *anything* if you decide that’s what you want to do. I see you there, shaking your head saying “No, that’s not possible, I can’t live my dreams”. But I can tell you can. Why? Because I’m doing it myself. Once, I couldn’t ever imagine giving messages from Spirit. I thought “How could I possibly do this? I’m just a mom, I’m nobody”. Well I’m here to tell you that if you decide that you want to follow what’s in your heart, then Spirit and the Universe will not let you down. I promise you, if you start to follow your true path, doors will open, windows will open, secret passages will open – there will be openings if you look. It’s only when you find roadblock after roadblock and you know deep in your gut that what you’re doing isn’t right for you that you will realize you need to take another path.

When you start listening to your soul, the once insurmountable looking obstacles will soften a little. I’m not saying that when you’re on your path that everything is easy breezy and there are no challenges. This is not true. There’s always challenges, but when you’re pushing in the wrong direction those roads are really bumpy and ultimately closed. When you’re pushing in the right direction there will be some bumps here and there and you might find some resistance from others, even yourself. However, what you will feel in your body, your heart and your gut chakra is that it’s right. So keep going. Don’t give up on yourself. I wish you all tremendous success on your new journey.

Hug a Medium Today!

Do you ever wonder what an actual medium is really like? Not who you see on a stage or what you might see on TV, but what they’re *really* like day-to-day? Here’s a secret: We’re just the same as you are! Shocked, right? It’s sort of like when you’re little and see your teacher in the supermarket and you can’t believe they actually go food shopping!

When I meet people and tell them that I am a Psychic Medium, they have all sorts of preconceived impressions of what I actually do. It could be from the movies, something they’ve heard from a friend or social media. I tell people I am just a normal person. I’m not magical. I’ve just put time and effort into honing my gift and, from the outside it may look magical, but I believe that everybody has the ability to connect to spirit. It’s just a matter of exercising those muscles.

Imagine you wanted to be a professional bodybuilder. You would eat right, go to the gym all the time, cut your carbs, etc. You’d basically do everything that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson does. It’s the same thing with Mediumship. If you wanted to do this work, you would need to put some time and effort into it. It’s true that some people might be more naturally suited and “called to” this type of work, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have to develop their gift. All the mediums I know are constantly working to better their craft. Just like an elite athlete or a great actor, most of us continually try to do our best work- and this “best work” is always evolving. Anyone that tells you they don’t need to continue developing you might want to steer clear of because after all, nobody is perfect.

When people discover what I do, a lot of them assume that I have spirits whizzing around my head 24 hours a day. Now I can’t speak for all mediums, but that’s not how it works for me. When I’m working, I intentionally tune into Spirit and maintain that connection. When done, I pretty much shut everything off. It doesn’t mean that at other times I don’t have my intuitive spidey sense on- only that I’m not actively trying to connect to Spirit. As soon as someone learns I’m a medium, the barrage of questions usually start. Once, the UPS man asked me if I saw any spirits around him. I looked at him blankly and said, “Uh no, but I’d be happy to make an appointment for you”. I wasn’t trying to be rude, but it’s the same as if I were a Doctor and he showed me a rash on his arm and asked “Hey Doc, is this contagious?” I want people to understand that I’m not “on” all the time and I certainly don’t know all the answers to everything. I’m human.

Another thing people often assume is that I see their loved ones walking around them constantly. Some mediums do see Spirit like that. But for me, since I’m very clairvoyant, I see it almost like a movie in my peripheral vision. They will present themselves to me as they were in life and they will show me objects or symbols that have meaning to them. There have been occasions where I have seen Spirit walking around, like an apparition, but that is more unusual for me. When I connect with them, I’m usually seeing with my third eye, I am not seeing with my physical eyes. The “magic” part most people probably have a hard time understanding is when I sit with a client, I create space within my energy field to allow their loved one to drop in. Say what? OK, that might sound a little woo-woo but that’s actually what I do. After someone dies they are not dead- Their physical body may no longer be here but their spirit or soul or Godself is still here. And this is what I connect to. That is the meaning of “Namaste” – the Spirit in me honors the Spirit in you. Because after all, we are all Spirit whether we are incarnate (in the body) or discarnate (out of the body).

Aside from these atypical daily encounters, most of the time I’m just a conventional person like you. I cook dinners, pick up my kids from school and deal with regular life problems. Sometimes people say that I must have everything figured out since I’m able to talk to Spirit. That is not true. I am still human and I struggle with all the doubts, difficulties and challenges that you do. Trust me.

My hope is to help people understand who mediums are and to provide insight as to what it’s like to be in our shoes. Please don’t be weirded out by us if you meet us on the street. And please understand we’re not always “on” if you see us in the grocery store or walking on the beach. Try to respect our personal time if you can, but don’t be afraid to say hi if you see me in line at Starbucks. I love what I do and know I am privileged to be in communion with the Spirit world. Just please don’t ask me if I see your Aunt Martha around you if we run into each other in the restroom. Even Spirits need their private time. 🙂

All Dogs Do Go to Heaven

Because I am a Medium, I read for many people who ask me about their pets who have passed over. They ask me lots of questions…Is my pet in heaven? Are they okay? What are they doing over there? Did they know that they were loved? And so many other questions because…well…just like when they lose a beloved human…they want peace and closure with their pet. They want to know that the animal they raised and cared for is safe and knows how loved they were on earth. Our pets are our children and when they pass, we grieve the same way we grieve a family member. So I tell them yes, our pets do go to heaven.

How do I know? Well…I see departed pets in their spiritual form.

Yes…I see the spirits of animals. And not only with my third eye…but with my physical eyes. I discovered that I could see the spirits of animals when my beagle Dudley came to visit me three years after he passed away.

You see…Dudley loved to eat (like any dog). And I was making food for friends who were coming to dinner that evening. My other two dogs, Maggie and Henry, were stretched out on the kitchen floor catching an afternoon nap and I was making brownies. (yum!) The oven timer suddenly went off and as I turned to take the food out of the oven Dudley walked into the kitchen and stood in the doorway gazing deeply into my eyes. It was as if I had taken a picture out of an album that I hadn’t looked at in 20 years. All the memories came flooding into my mind. How soft his long ears were and how short his little legs were. How velvety soft his little tongue was when he would kiss my chin and how broad his chest was. In life this dog had been so precious to me. I was unable to have human children and he fulfilled so many needs for a childless woman who wanted babies. I stood there and stared at him for as long as I could, which was probably all of 20 seconds or so, turned to do some small task and when I turned back he was gone. I returned to my work preparing food. Slowly I came back into my body realizing that I had received a visit from my precious fur baby. I thanked him out loud for visiting and told him how much I loved him.

It was later that I processed the information that he had conveyed to me during his visit. He told me how loved ones on the other side experience the grief of the loved ones they leave behind and he told me he wouldn’t be visiting me as much anymore because he had work to do on the other side. But he said he would be visiting occasionally…and he has. Every now and then I feel him jump on the bed or I hear his nails on the floor and I smile knowing that my sweet pup is well on the other side…that he is just over the veil.
Recently I lost another fur baby named Henry. I don’t feel him around me like I did when Dudley passed, but I think that is because I know that I will see him again on the other side someday.

So yes…I tell my clients that their pets are safe and well on the other side. And I share any messages that they give to me to deliver. Because all dogs do go to Heaven.

Oracle Cards

A Gateway to Connect with your Inner Divine

Feeling restless? Anxious? Bored? Confused? Are you excited? Peaceful? At a precipice or turning point? Then it’s a great time to get out your oracle deck of cards, or Tarot cards to have a chat with yourself and the Divine.

I feel fortunate to have grown up surrounded by tarot cards. My mother used the Rider Waite deck, and I would sit and watch in wonder as she laid them out whenever she did a reading for one of her college students. She didn’t do it often, a hobby really, a source of calm and clarity for herself, for friends, and for her drama students. There was always an electric feeling in the air for me when she would have the cards out. Excitement and possibility abounded. I would later, after her time reading them, hold each card in my hands and study the images.

When I grew up and went off on my own I acquired my own cards, a beautiful Oracle deck, different than a full tarot card deck as it has fewer cards and doesn’t run in suits like Tarot does. I didn’t practice psychic reading yet at that time in my life. I had no idea I would later become a professional reader, healer and medium. I would simply go to my deck when the feeling moved me, and sit and drop into a quiet state of mind, and ask for a message through the cards. I found, and still do find, it to be calming, comforting, and always aligned with what I was needing to hear at the time. It was as if there was a wise loving guardian with me, advising me and reassuring me that I was not alone. It still happens like that today.

Some people are afraid of oracle and tarot cards, finding them creepy, or too “woo woo”. The truth is, they are simply a tool, an extension of your own higher consciousness and the Universal energy that surrounds you that is always available to help you with clarity if only you will open to it. There is a helpful setting of the tone of intention when an oracle deck is used to center yourself. You can always just sit quietly and receive guidance from spirit, the Universe, or whatever you like to call it, but using a beautiful deck of illustrated cards that resonates with you based on its theme and design will quickly transport you to a lovely and deeper connection to your own spirit. It’s as if a key gets turned in your consciousness, and you find a deeper wisdom and calm place inside yourself. That calm place within is always there, and the practice of doing it often will open your intuition and help you to feel more connected spiritually with yourself.

Try this any time you can take a few minutes for yourself in a quiet place. Morning, with my tea or coffee, is my favorite time:
Take your oracle cards and hold them in your hands while you focus on your intention – a general message or a specific situation you want guidance on. Take a deep breath and shuffle the cards a few times in your hands. Now pick one card for a shorter reading, or two or three for a more expanded one. You can also choose another card to expand on the message of the cards before it. You will find that the card (s) you pick will resonate with whatever you are needing to understand or be made aware of in that moment about your situation, or for your higher guidance. There is always a written guide explaining the meaning of the cards with each deck.

A great place to find your own special deck that really feels right for you is in a good bookstore, or a metaphysical bookstore. You can also find them online when you search Oracle decks and Tarot cards. I highly recommend this practice of connecting with your inner self and Source, Divine, Universe, for support and wisdom to assist on your journey here on Earth.

Happy Divining!

Love Is All That’s Left

The Value of Mediumship

The other day I went with my dear friend to visit her father in a rehab/nursing home facility. I hadn’t seen Paul, her 83-year-old dad, in almost a year. When we arrived he was asleep, seeming to be somewhere between worlds. When my friend gently woke him, he startled and moaned. Lori then greeted him, told him who she was, and asked how he was. “Not good” he said. He seemed to be off somewhere in a distant place, a bit confused. Then, all at once, he brightened as he gazed at his daughter and said, “I love you sooo much!” The rest of the visit continued much in that same vein; vagueness, chit chat from my friend, and many times over, the clear, sincere, heartfelt gaze and exclamation from Paul, “I Love you. I just love you so. I love you so much”. My friend has a rocky relationship history with her father, which she has completely made her peace with over the years. As I sat with them and witnessed this sweet authentic interaction between them, I was inspired to write this piece. Being a professional medium, this is the bottom line of every message delivered from loved ones who have passed. “I Love You.” Yes, of course there are variations of it, “I am ok” I am with you always” “Please forgive me” etc. But the resounding communication is always and only Love.

I was so moved by this intimate innocence from Paul to his daughter. I teared up at the universality of the soul connection between them, between us all, and in my opinion, between ourselves and the Divine, Source, God, Oneness. The core of most souls is pure love. Why, then, does it get so obscured while we are here on Earth living out our lives and relationships? I have said to my audience at every public demonstration of mediumship I do, and I’ll say it here: tell them now! Tell them while they are here with you, heal the rifts and pride that separates and guards your hearts! But even if, for whatever reasons, you can’t or don’t do this, know that at the end of your life and theirs, perhaps after passing, the core will reveal itself one way or another. When you bring a medium in to help you to connect with that loved one in spirit, the main message you will leave the session with is the love that never dies. Why not, then, make the effort now to allow this deep soul level connection to bubble up to the surface and flow out from your heart to theirs? The key is NOT to be attached to their response, or their receptivity to your love. Give it anyway! Receive it anyway! There is no obligation or etiquette on how to respond to “I love you”. Simply allowing it to wash over you in silence is enough. Or, if you are the giver of it, allowing it to flow out from you toward your mother, father, sibling, spouse, child, friend etc. Try offering it to yourself as well! A sincere, heartfelt, uninhibited “I LOVE YOU” right into your own eyes. Soul to soul of Self. Go on, I dare you! Love is our core, and love does heal the soul.

That day at the nursing home, Paul didn’t talk about his career, or his accomplishments in life. He sat and ate the chocolate pudding his loving daughter brought to him, and gazed at her like a child and said, “I love you soooo much!” over and over again.

The beauty and value of the ability to communicate with our loved ones who have passed, the value of the gift of mediumship is just for this. This simple essential core expression of the soul’s “I love you.” For what else is there, really? That, and the proof of the soul’s continuation, of course.

My wish for you is that you take advantage of the gift you have of your loved ones still living in the physical world and the opportunity to let them know that at your core, even with any difficulties and hurts that need clearing work, you love them so much. If your loved ones have gone on to the other side of this life, the next best thing is the use of mediumship, through your own spirit to spirit communication, or through the assistance of a genuine medium to guide you.

Are Entity Attachments Real?

How Do I Know If I Have One?

In the world of psychics, healers and metaphysics, inevitably the topic of “entities” or “attachments” will arise. It will come up in classes about healing and psychic development, in a discussion or when you visit your own reader or healer, and certainly if you are a working psychic or healer yourself. But what exactly IS an entity attachment, and why might it attach to you? I will begin by saying there are many beliefs on the subject and conflicting thoughts. For years I was taught by esteemed teachers of healing and psychic development how to clear and protect my energy field when doing this work because when you are empathic (as many people are) and working with, relating to, and in the presence of other humans, it’s important to clean out your energy field and space because you can pick up “stuff” and energies that don’t belong to you. This topic can get multi layered and branch off into all kinds of directions. I will keep it as concise as I can speaking from my own experience.

I have been trained in and I teach multiple techniques for clearing the human aura, and physical space. I have worked for 30 years in the healing arts, and have a thriving private practice as a psychic, medium, energy healer and spiritual counselor. I discovered that I had picked up a foreign energy (entity) that was attached to my energy field. I had been feeling rather “off” for quite a long time. I was experiencing low energy, was weepy a lot, and more negative and drained than I had ever felt for such a continued period of time. I was behaving in ways that weren’t usual, like desires to do things out of character for me, such as zoning out and escapism behavior. I was putting things off that I normally enjoyed, isolating from others, and feeling a big lack of motivation to do my work, which is my true passion in life! Admittedly, I had become remiss in managing my energy field carefully, both in my work and personal life. As the awareness of how “off” I was becoming intensified, I just “happened” (there are no accidents!) to come upon an article with a list of symptoms of an entity attachment. I found it hit me like a frying pan over the head and I realized that was what was probably going on. Me? A trained professional psychic healer? That same day, we had good friends over and one of them was a healer whom I came to find out cleared attachments through a technique using the akashic records (a topic for another day). I followed the protocol she gave me after doing her assessment and I truly experienced a total shift and reversal of the symptoms. It has been a reminder of the importance of taking care of my energy field.

What exactly IS an entity attachment? It’s an energy in another dimension that is of a low vibration and feeds on the energy of living animals/people. It can be a collective of negative thought forms but not with a soul. Like a bacteria or parasite on the astral (unseen) level. An entity can be a negative human soul who is vibrating on a lower level frequency and stays hanging around the Earth plane out of fear to move onward. These souls attach to people or animals to gain energy and to live vicariously through the incarnated being. There are many other types of entities such as dark force (demonic) and ETs who have a different energy to them and attach for different reasons.

The most important thing to know about this subject is how to prevent it and how to clear it if you find you have one. According to some research I did, a large percentage of people have attachments at some time in their lives and don’t know it, and some have them for their entire lifetime. They come from other people who have them, and go to other clear people who have an opening in their aura to allow them in. An opening can happen when a person is weak emotionally due to trauma, in fear or negativity, too open energetically and merging with another’s energy field, through sex with a person who has entity attached, or when using drugs or alcohol. To stay clear in the aura, a person has to be soul empowered and not in fear to remove and to keep the entity away. The assistance of the Angelic realm, (also known as High Entities) and the Divine (God/Goddess)-a higher vibration than the entity is needed to escort it out to another realm where it belongs.

Some things to be aware of to stay clear of entity attachment:
Stay healthy physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Clear negative people out of your life, check your thoughts and belief systems for low vibration (shame, fear, self-loathing, over giving, martyrdom, giving your power away,) and protect your home, office, car etc. with healing thoughts, cleanliness and high vibration music, light, sincere meditation and positive relationships. Burning white sage and incense clears space, and water and salt keeps the aura clear.

Whole Health for the Lightworker

Whole health for our Spiritual Work:

Our true nature is that of total peace, joy and ultimate health and, therefore, there has to be a balance between the Mind, Body and the Spirit. The truth is, we are vibrant, joyful, glistening and divine, and our sacred power is Love and our Light that shimmers within.
We are cosmic energy. We have an intuitive voice and we can illuminate ourselves to perfect health.

Do you believe this?

Let’s talk about the struggles Spirit workers have balancing their own lives and their work. We cannot move away from the truth that we have drama and noise all around us – the challenge is – how do you not allow these factors to affect you and your work.

Here’s the reality of what we may be dealing with – negative comments from people and, yes, that includes family. We hear it one way or another…

I personally try to find humor in all of what is happening around me – because people are funny!

How do I deal with negative people? I imagine them on my funny cloud surrounding them with all the colors of the rainbow and send them off. You can’t take things seriously, not even yourself! This work is serious enough…

Our Responsibility as Spirit Workers ~

We have a huge responsibility to take care of ourselves and our integrity, as well as the integrity of our work.

That means to always separate our own personal struggles and to be sure that we start off our sessions with the clarity of an intention we’ve set out for ourselves and each one of our clients.

A lesson on Boundaries –

Keep it Simple –

In your sessions, lay down your rules so that your clients are aware. – (For instance – they can’t talk over me while messages are being delivered.) Make it clear that they can ask questions after.

Being clear about your business Hours and pacing yourself. – I set limits on how many clients ‘to see’ whether it is an In-Person Session or a Phone Session to 3 bookings per day, every other day. I do Events once or twice a month.

Don’t overbook yourself thinking you can do it all. – I’ve done this, there was a time when I saw 6 or 7 clients a day, sacrificing the quality of my Readings or Healing Sessions to mediocre. Previously, I thought I would see 14 clients and I did. This was when I worked at a metaphysical bookstore. I ended up being a total Crab Pot at the end of the day ~ not fun! Missing meals made me even crabbier! But, I have learned and – never again!

I was contemplating on how things have changed since I have chosen to do this work. The energetic shifts are enormous and I feel it. Premonitions come through frequently and the downloads from Masters and Light Codes come through especially in my healing sessions – this I cannot wait to tell you about sometime.

Keeping yourself together as a Spiritual Worker:

We are definitely being called to bring our talents to the forefront and as we up-level our work, we will face more and more challenges as we help clear the path for many.

As a Medium, I am welcoming all the shifts that come my way as a sign that my work is evolving and I am excited to see what’s to come…

The Akashic Principle of Love

…A modified excerpt from award winning book, Divine Love Affair: An Akashic Journey Written by Nancy Smith.

When I was a tiny girl I had a sense of being loved in a large way. It was as if everything and everyone around me was made of love. I returned excitement and love to everyone and everything.

My parents took us to church as a young family. I watched with interest as the prayers and songs glowed in colors around the sacred alter. Sometimes I saw colors around people’s heads. Sometimes I heard extra voices singing with us. I defined this joyful presence as God, the Holy Family, and my angels.

But, over time my life became complicated. My mom was always angry, my dad was aloof. By the age of seven I began to feel confused about my parent’s anger and sadness and the love I experienced from my angels. It made for one hot mess. My loving enthusiasm took a nosedive. I escorted it all, hearing angels, feeling love and a sense of happiness, to the back of my consciousness.

 Around my tenth birthday, my mom threw a big christening party for baby number eight, little Jackie. While my sibs and cousins played outside, I was sent upstairs to get baby Jackie up from her nap. With Jackie my arms, I started down the stairs. At the top of the landing I heard a commanding voice say “STOP.”

 “The angels,” I thought to myself. “I had better listen.” I stopped. I stood on the landing at the top of the stairs. I waited for what seemed like forever. I squeezed my eyes shut and asked, “When can I go?” In my mind’s eye I saw a traffic light.  The lights changed from red to yellow, and then to green. “Okay,” I said aloud, and continued down the stairs.

 I had to walk past a bank of large windows to lay Jackie down in her bassinet.  Just as I was about to step in front of the first window, a ball came crashing through it, shattering and spraying broken glass everywhere. The shards just missed hitting us. I knew that if I hadn’t listened to the voice telling me to stop, we would have been badly hurt.

 I whispered, “Thank you.” In my heart I knew my angels were keeping me safe. I promised I would try to listen better. From that moment on, my amazing journey with Spirit began to grow on purpose, by my choice. With that choice, at ten years old, I began my journey to return to the loving presence of the angels and the creator.

In the Presence of Akashic Love

The presence of God is Love. God is Love. Love is the energy used in all of the creator’s creations. The Akasha is the essence of the creator’s source and is the energy of Love.

We will always return to God, whether during life as we live it, or during our transitioning in death to Spirit, we return to Love. When we direct our minds, emotions, and Spirits to self-love, and accept a divine, loving, healing presence in our lives, miracles can happen. They aren’t really miracles—we’re meant to live our lives in Love—it’s the natural way of being that brings us back to health and a sense of well-being.

The miracle is our return to Love, to Source.

Our self-awareness and ability to recognize our needs and care for ourselves, is in direct proportion to our capacity to open up to God’s love and Akashic spiritual energy.

Akasha is the intelligent, compassionate life force from which all things are created and to which all things return. Akasha is one of the many names for the creator energy, the Divine Consciousness. Akasha is also an organizational principle that we can use to understand and connect to the Divine Consciousness and Love of the creator.

Akasha is an energy that can be accessed. This ability is embedded in your energy anatomy. The potential is within you and the training is available. We are created and born to access this energy. As we access Akashic energy, our lives as humans are enhanced; we deepen the journey to our soul. What has wounded your spirit and self in your lifetime can be reclaimed and healed as you access the Akashic field.

Within the Akashic field of energy is a library of information and the wisdom of all creation. The Akashic energy is sensitive, and all events are impressed and embedded within this Akashic library of records. The records contain the macrocosm and microcosm of your life; the big picture of your soul’s plan and the very personal information about you are all all retained in this Akashic field.

The healing within the Akashic field is a relationship of reciprocity and deep respect. To enter onto this healing path you must take ownership of the choices you make in your life. The entrance fee is your willingness to be completely present in the moment as best you can. Curiosity, imagination, creativity, forgiveness, intuition, and a willingness to blend with Spirit elevates your vibration. You will then access Akashic healing consciously and with purpose.

When you consider your life’s path and Soul purpose, think of Divine Love. Wherever you go, whatever you choose to do, the best path is the path that brings you to Divine Love.

Messages from Synchronicities

Synchronicity with Spirit and Soul

Every developing psychic is taught to ask for signs from spirit for guidance. I learned to ask for specific signs to tell me I was on the right path and show me that spirit guides were with me, helping me.

I commonly hear clients ask loved ones in spirit, “Show me a sign you are near me and around me.” The variety of signs clients describe to me is amazing.

Signs and synchronicities can let us know when we are on the right track or not. They can let us know when we are we aligned with Soul and Spirit, or when we are we falling off the rails.

So what is a synchronicity?

Our Sub-conscious mind is an amazing being. I’m talking about the conscious part of our self that connects us to our spirit, Soul, and the Universe – whether we know it or not! It is our Sub-conscious mind that helps us see the patterns and language (the Akashic records) of the universe.

The language of our Super Sub-conscious self is synchronicities. Synchronicities are meaningful coincidences. Synchronicity is the word Swiss psychologist Carl Jung used to describe the temporally coincident occurrences of acausal events. In other words, things that happen that have meaning, and maybe aren’t just random acts.

Jung describes synchronicity using a case study:
“A young woman I was treating had a dream in which she was given a golden scarab. While she was telling me her dream I heard a noise behind me. I turned round and saw a flying insect knocking against the window-pane. I opened the window and caught the creature in the air as it flew in. It was the nearest analogy to the golden scarab that one finds in our latitudes, a scarabaeid beetle, … which had evidently felt an urge to get inside at this particular moment.” The Scarab represented Self-Generation, Resurrection and Renewal.”

Some other examples of meaningful synchronicities can be:
• You are in a bookstore looking for a book that will help you, and the book you need falls off the shelf.
• You finally end a bad relationship and immediately another partner comes into your life as if by synchronicity.
• You are wondering what to do about a certain problem and someone calls you unexpectedly, without you ever asking them, and has information you need.
• You are suffering with financial difficulties, yet money for basic expenses always manifests.

SYNCHRONICITY is when intention meets energy through vibrational attraction.

You can access the power of synchronicities on purpose. As synchronistic energetic inputs come from a higher source to guide you, be curious! Choose to follow the “bread crumbs.” When you do that, more “bread crumbs” will follow. As you choose to listen and take action, you raise your awareness of universal life force and increase your personal vibration.

Tune into to synchronistic guidance by first asking a question. Then imagine that question being answered. Then relax and prepare to receive the answer you need in any form it may come.

Try these steps:
• Sit in silence Relax and feel serenity, peace and a sense of connection.
• Prayer: Clarify your desire in words.
• Meditation: As you sit in silence, imagine you are blending with the flow and power of the universe. Imagine it any way that feels good to you. I picture floating on my back in a beautiful river.
• Let go: Get up go about your life. Trust the answers will come in whatever form it will “in a way you can understand”.

Do these things to reinforce your intention:
• Visualize your desired outcome
• Use a positive voice.
• Be ready to receive.
• Be patient.
• Be flexible.

Continue to check in and monitor your awareness and connection to catch the synchronistic moments. Affirm to your self:
“I am in the flow of creativity and the highest vibration of Source.”
