This question breaks my heart. Religious beliefs can generate some pretty intense fears. This one is brutal. A family whose loved one was an awful person in life, or a family with a member who passed by suicide, often come to the reading afraid that their loved one won't be reachable because they are currently somewhere in "hell." Contrary to what some churches and new age gurus would have us believe, God is kind. A difficult life, mental illness or a brain chemistry imbalance is cause for compassion and healing in the spirit world. Everyone is greeted with love...everyone. Of the thousands of deceased loved ones I've spoken with over these past two decades, including many who were 'horrible people' or passed by suicide, I have yet to have one of them tell me that they were given "special leave" from some "fiery pit" somewhere to come and communicate. Let's all encourage that myth to fall away once and for all.
The Akashic Record is the sum total of everything that has ever occurred on the earth and is held within the memory of the earth itself. Stored within this memory are the many lives of everyone who has ever come to earth to explore what it means to be a human. By reading the Akashic Record we are given the opportunity to explore our past lives and the past lives of those around us, aiding our understanding of our current circumstances and relationships. These records are accessible to us and can be used as a path to help grow and evolve our spiritual relationship with our Higher Self and Creator. Akashic readings help support us by increasing our understanding of our life purpose and life path, as well as illuminate sources of challenges we may be facing in the present in areas such as career, finance and relationships. During an Akashic Record reading I tap into the memory of your journey on the earth, allowing you deeper understanding of how you got to this place in your soul's journey, ultimately opening you to a greater understanding of who you are today.
I am asked this during most readings. Your loved ones tell me that they are busy in heaven. You see, this world is a reflection of that world, not the other way around. Where they are now is "home" and this earth is where we visit for a short time and return home once our time here has ended. They meet with friends and relatives, garden, farm, travel, create works of art, study, invent, etc. Anything we can think of dong here they are actively pursuing there and more. Are they doing the exact same things there that they did while here? Sometimes yes, sometimes no. They might continue doing what they did here or take up something new. In addition to connecting with their earthly friends and family they will meet new people and certainly try new things. No matter what our loved ones are doing now they always emphasize to me that they are at peace and busy...and of course, still keeping an eye on us.
Angels are our constant companions. We each have our own personal angel assigned to us at birth who stick by our side, encouraging and protecting us throughout our entire lives. Our own personal angels know our life path and purpose and they make every effort to remind us how to stay on it by sending us mental and emotional nudges because, they want to help us succeed in making this life as fruitful and abundant as possible. When we quiet ourselves enough we can feel their soothing presence and hear their wise guidance. Sometimes, life becomes just too chaotic and it seems nearly impossible to receive the messages these amazing friends have for us. As a certified Angel Therapy Practitioner I have been trained how to receive their messages and pass them along to you in a reading, an angel reading. Please feel free to post any questions that you have for me about angels...I love passing along information about these wonderful beings and their role in our lives.
"I really want you to come to my house for a group reading but I'm afraid of negative and evil spirits. Can you reassure me you won't bring any with you or leave any here?"
The idea that portals get opened and evil spirits pour through it just because your deceased loved ones come to communicate with you is superstitious thinking. Your deceased loved ones are around you often. They no more bring negative 'stuff' with them when they visit by themselves then they do when they communicate with me. I suppose there are those who believe that evil spirits can 'slip in through the cracks' and into this reality during a reading. Please let me assure you, there are no cracks to slip through.
I realize that there are television shows that depict "ghost hunters" that purposefully go into haunted places to gather evidence of the afterlife. These hunters taunt the spirits in an effort to get them to leave evidence on their technological "ghost hunting" devices. Often times the hunters will report the ghosts following them home and subsequently creating some sort of evil havoc in their daily lives. I will say here that If you go to haunted places looking for cranky, negative spirits, you will probably find them.
And let me point out that if one goes to hunt something that they can't see but that is perfectly capable of seeing them...who's the better hunter, who becomes the hunter and who becomes the prey?
"I hear foot steps coming up the stairs at 3 in the morning and when I look there's no one there. Is my house haunted?"
"The television keeps turning on and off by itself, is that my brother trying to get my attention?"
Students frequently ask questions like these during the classes I teach. Out of the ordinary noises and random activity that seemingly comes out of no where and made by no one definitely gets our attention. We want answers.
When addressing this question I generally start out by reminding the student that they know their home and the noises it makes very, very well and so honor and own it when something out of the ordinary is happening there. I encourage them to never let someone else tell them that it is "nothing" or "just your imagination." Are the noises being made by a deceased loved one or is it haunted by a ghost? I don't know unless I actually sit down and mentally connect to the energies in the home. Once I do this I can discern who or what is getting their attention.
As a general rule, if you think it is a deceased loved one trying to get your attention.... it is. Most of us can intuitively feel the presence of our loved one and we do not feel frightened. But, if the activity in your home makes you feel frightened then you may have a haunting, which I define as a visitation by an entity or ghost person other then a loved one.
GHOST? ENTITY? WHAT?? I'm going to leave that for a separate blog.
I get this question... a lot... First of all let me say that I understand why I get this question. I get paid to connect with deceased loved ones and no one wants to waste his or her hard earned money should the loved one not come through. Please let me assure you that that has never happened in all of the years I have been giving readings. Never. Your loved ones have shown up 100 percent of the time. I won't belabor this.... just wanted to get that our there.
Have a wonder filled day!!
In my classes the first question I am always asked is "When did you know you could do this?" By "this" they mean communicate with the other side. For me as a child, when people died they simply went from the way we see each other now, to semi-transparent. I would only randomly see them and I didn't know where they lived when they weren't around me. However, when they were around we could see and talk with each other. They were always gentle with me and I was never, ever afraid of them.
As I got older and realized that others didn't see the deceased people like I did I began to ignore them. As I ignored them they faded from my sight. I think they did this as a kindness.
Some people are older when they discover for the first time that they can interact with the deceased. They generally were sensitive and had unusual experiences as a child, such as knowing about the upcoming death of someone around them or knowing someone had passed before it is announced. However, Mediumship is the act of bridging the physical world and the world of spirit by conscious active communication. Not all who are sensitive to the other side will develop into mediums, though many do.
Mediums are people that consciously communicate with the deceased, on demand and consistently, anytime they wish. Being a natural born medium means that you know about the spirit world, they know about your ability to communicate with them, and thus there can be a dialogue of sorts between the two of you on demand.
I get asked by nearly every one of my students “when did you know you could do this?’ By “this” they are asking about my psychic/medium abilities. The answer I give is that I was born this way. I further tell them, as I am saying now and here, that we all have access to our intuition, but it is the person who is driven to develop it that will eventually succeed at it. My students are hoping that I can give them a magic formula to instantly remove some unknown blockages which are somehow hiding their as yet uncovered psychic identity, and presto, their inner psychic is revealed. Unfortunately, that is not how it works. Psychic talent, including Mediumship ability, is a learned skill. Just as someone who has writing ability or a musical ear must learn to develop and refine their inborn talent, so the psychic needs to learn to get the messages out of her unconscious and into her head for processing. The messages mostly come in the form of symbols and so the developing psychic needs to learn her own inner symbology in order to translate the messages into a form that can be interpreted for the physical world. I am pretty sure that a psychic medium has the gift to quickly receive, recognize and process the symbols coming from the unconscious, and this sets him apart. I will grant that the learning comes more quickly and naturally to some more then to others, and granted not everyone needs or wants to be a Mozart, but even he had to be shown how to hold his hands on the piano to begin playing.
It's fun and exciting for me to finally get up and running with my website. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be, things rarely are. My goal of writing and maintaining this blog is to encourage open dialogue on topics of interest along the lines of spirit communication. However, I'm up for just about any topic so long as it's of shared interest. If you have questions for me I'd love to hear them and I will answer with what I know from my personal experiences.
