A Brother To Watch Over You

During a reading early this morning, a brother came through for his sister.  I immediately warmed to his energy -- he was a warm hearted soul.  He showed me a fire that the extended family had experienced but had been stopped and an upcoming plumbing problem.  The brother made it clear to me that his job was taking care of his family. He had prevented that fire from spreading and getting worse, and he was helping by giving a warning about a water issue in a work room coming up for the family.

When I do readings, the people who come through often tell me about what they're doing on the other side.  If they're newly crossed (within the last couple of years), usually they're still on vacation.  They spend that time reconnecting with friends and family, traveling and acclimating to their new and wonderful setting. But after some time has passed, they will often be given a job.  Teachers will work with young souls, artists will inspire artists on earth, doctors will help new souls prepare to return, nurses will assist souls transitioning back to heaven.  In my experience, someone usually gets the job of watching over his or her family.  Not every family member you know who has passed on has the job of watching over the family.  Usually, just one or two members are chosen.  In my experience these souls usually have a lot of compassion, loyalty and objectivity -- an ability to see situations from all sides so they can most accurately help every family member.

What job will you want when it's your turn?  Interesting thought to ponder, isn't it?

For me, I'd like to help people struggling with doubt and faith because I believe faith -- true faith which involves surrender and trust -- is the key to everything: happiness, success, love, health, and true peace.

I'll be away from the computer for the next few days, so I'd like to wish all you readers a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving.  I am so thankful for all you readers.  Thank you for being such a wonderful part of my journey.

Crystal Clear

One of my favorite parts of doing readings is at the end when the client gets to reach into my bowl of crystals, close their eyes and "choose" the one that's right for them.  Usually, my readings tend to evolve into a theme, a central message, and the crystals they choose always reflect this theme.  Just this week, I had a man come in to see me.  He's going through a divorce, and I felt that he'd need to take on a primary parenting role in the upcoming months and will need to be both a father and a mother on many occasions.  The crystal he chose was purple agate -- mother love.

A woman recently met someone and hoped the relationship would last; I felt it would.  The crystal she picked was rose quartz -- love coming to you.

A man came to see me who I felt would finally get the successes he'd been working so hard for.  This was someone who earned through blood, sweat and tears everything he had.  The message was that he'd finally get the pay off, but it would come through even more hard work.  He chose the only stone I've ever had in that bowl that's self-healed.  This is a really interesting phenomena where a stone is cracked and then somehow it heals itself.  You can still see the crack, but instead of a jagged edge, it's smooth.  The self-healed stone represents someone who makes his own way, forges his own path and is solely responsible for his own success and happiness.  How fitting that he should pick the self healed stone!

Often, a stone is in that bowl that I don't remember putting in there.  Recently, a woman came to see me who was going through a terrible period of loneliness.  I felt that it would turn around soon, but I could see she doubted me.  Life had just been too hard for her, and she'd given up on many of her hopes and dreams.  She chose a sunstone -- symbolizing positivity, sunny times and happiness coming your way.  And I have no memory of getting that stone!

To me, crystals are gifts to us -- they provide a mirror for us to see things more clearly and they offer us a chance to heal naturally and completely.

Earning Your Wings

I had a humorous moment with a father who passed away and was trying to communicate with his son.  He wasn't a big believer in people like me and what I do for a living, so it was difficult at first for him to get information through to me.  But soon I was picking up his energy, and I really liked his personality -- funny, intelligent and yet humble.  He said he was shocked at the beauty of the other side.  He always believed in a heaven, but never really spent a lot of time thinking about it.  Then he showed me wing pins.  Remember when you were a kid and flew for the first time, the stewardess would give you a pin with wings and say, "Now you've earned your wings?"  That's what he showed me.  At first, I thought it was a special memory he shared with his son, but that wasn't it.  Then I thought maybe he was trying to show me that birds, the eagle in particular, is a special sign he shows his son.  But no, that wasn't it.  He just kept showing me that pin, and then I got it!  It wasn't a symbol but a literal picture he was showing me.  He was telling his son that he'd made it to heaven, had "earned his wings!"

Mystical Experience

I shared this story on Sunday night's radio show, but I thought I'd blog about it too.  I can't stop thinking about this amazing experience I had at church this weekend.  As I was kneeling and watching our priest prepare the Eucharist, I kept seeing something spinning out of the corner of my right eye.  It looked like there was something or someone hovering by the ceiling of my church, but every time I turned up to face it directly, I saw nothing but the ceiling.   This happened three times.  I was sure the people seated around me were beginning to think I was nuts, so I stopped looking up at the ceiling.  Then I felt this cool, tingling sensation run throughout my body.  It was almost as though someone were pouring cold water down my veins.  But it felt really great -- very alive and refreshing.  At the same time, I smelled this wonderful aroma of newness, innocence.  The closest smell I can relate it to would be baby powder.  And then I saw these drops of pure light, so bright that it looked like drops of pure silver, falling into people's heads.  Just one drop per person.  It was amazing.  I really don't have words for it, and I'm completely aware that I'm doing a horrible job of explaining this experience.  But I got the sense that we were all being prepared spiritually for the Eucharist.  I felt as though some type of amazing cleansing was taking place, and I had a sense of knowing that this occurs every week, that just as we need to shower every day we also need to cleanse our souls.

The Giving Tree

The day before Halloween, one of my daughters asked me if she could start her letter to Santa.  I said yes, of course, but inside I worried that they'd come to see the holidays as just a time of presents, gifts, and getting.  I want them to focus on the true joy of the holidays -- giving.  So I cut out a nine foot tall tree out of packing paper and taped it to a wall in my dining room.  Then my oldest daughter and I spent an afternoon cutting hundreds of leaves out of construction paper.  I told them that every time they do something nice for someone, they need to write it down on the leaf.  They didn't seem too excited.  I think one of them even asked, "Do you we have to?" So I told them that on November 30, I'd count to see who had the most leaves, and that person would get to go out with me for a manicure and a fancy dinner at the restaurant of their choice.  Boom!  They were in and then, like a miracle, they seemed to forget about the contest and just got into the idea of doing things for others.  

Here are some of their leaves:

I had my last good eraser and gave it to a girl in my class who really wanted it.

I helped my friend Claire to not cry.

A girl needed $2 to buy a book at the book fair, so I gave her my last $2.

I stuck up for a girl who was getting picked on.

I was a good sport when my team didn't win the game at P.E

I shared my birthday presents with my sisters.

They keep getting more creative and excited each day. So, I shared this idea with people on my newsletter list and asked them to share a "leaf" with me.  Today, I got my first one!

Arlene in North Carolina recently adopted two dogs who she's going to train to be therapy dogs.  

I love it!  If you get a chance, post a leaf here or send me an email:

I promise it will make your holiday more meaningful and rewarding.

All Soul's Day

Today is All Soul's Day.  Traditionally, it was created to pray for souls in purgatory, but I like to think of it as a lovely day to encourage us to remember our loved ones who have already transitioned.  When I do readings, I can't begin to express how much it means to them when we remember them here.  Your loved ones will tell me about the candles you light for them, the mention you gave of them in your wedding program, the flowers you bring to the grave, the picture of them you had restored.

One dad thanked his son for cleaning the guns he'd left to his son.  A grandfather was pleased that his Purple Heart had finally been framed in a shadow box.  A mom was thrilled that she was mentioned in the wedding program and a candle was lit for her on the altar. A brother thanked his sibling for taking such good care of his truck. A dad was glad that his son carried his funeral card with him always as a reminder of his beloved dad.  One mom loved the way her daughter kept favorite pictures of her mom in the family bible.

They see us, they visit us always and they love to see us remembering them.  Wouldn't you?  It's how we keep them alive here.  If you don't celebrate All Soul's Day, that's fine.  Just take a moment on your loved one's birthday to celebrate them.  On my mother-in-law's birthday, I make her favorite meal and a birthday cake.  And we all tell really fun stories about her.  We celebrate her life rather than mourn her departure.

Keep their pictures up and around, make a donation to a charity in their name, tell fun stories about them when appropriate, and pray for them.  Please don't misunderstand, I do not believe our loved ones are in purgatory.  But I do believe that many of our loved ones who may not have been stellar humans here on Earth are going through some difficult times over there.  Watching their life review and the pain they instilled on others is not easy.  Realizing that their missed opportunities, wasted chances and painful words and actions is very hard for them.  I've been told and shown in many ways that our prayers for them DO help.

My grandmother had a difficult life and was not the nicest person you could hope to meet.  When she died, I felt, heard and saw nothing of her for years and years.  I didn't think much of it.  But then one night she appeared to me and she didn't look well.  Her face was gray, her hair was disheveled, her skin wrinkled and her energy just felt so depleted.  She asked for my prayers.  So I called my mother and several members of her family and asked them all to pray for Grammy.  About three weeks later, my grandmother returned.  She was dressed in a beautiful Chanel suit, her hair was done and she radiated such a peaceful energy.  All she said was, "Thank you." And she was gone.

Now please understand faithful blog readers -- I am not saying that if you pray for your loved ones on the other side, they too can get designer clothing and a face lift.  Ha, ha!  I think both her appearances to me were symbolic to let me know how she was doing energetically.

So go ahead, give it a try.  Say a prayer for your loved ones, honor them, remember them, love them so that they will always have a home to call their own in our hearts.

Happy Halloween!

I took this picture from a local church in town.  Their signs always crack me up.  According to them, everyone is going straight to hell.  Isn't it crazy that people can read the same bible and take away so many different interpretations?

I hope you all had a great Halloween.  My kids had their costumes on at 3:00!  They were so excited.  We had a party and parade at our clubhouse and then they trick or treated until 9:00.  Even my 4 year old wanted to keep going.  And what do you know?  They don't like Snickers, Butterfingers or Kit Kats.  I wonder who will eat those for them?

And will wonders never cease?  We had all that fun without sacrificing one animal, not even a mouse!
