New Year Resolutions for All!

A new year typically inspires new resolutions. As you turn the calendar page you find yourself resolute once again. Your mind races with the thought of achieving unlimited possibilities. For many, the beginning of a new year goes hand-in-hand with clearing the slate as boundless opportunities stretch out in front of you.

You resolve to begin anew; to pay more attention to how you fuel and care for your fabulous body, or maybe you will find a new job this year, or perhaps give up an old (less than desirable) habit. Whatever you decide, you absolutely decide to pay more attention and focus on achieving your goals.

The beauty in it is that you possess the power to put your resolutions into action. How fabulous is that?  You are in complete control.  To quote Henry Ford; “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”

Yes, Virginia, There Is A Connection

In September of 1897, a curious young girl by the name of Virginia O’Hanlon wrote to the editor of the New York’s Sun with a burning question; “I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, ‘If you see it in THE SUN it’s so.’ Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?”

This excerpt is part of a wonderful response provided by the editor, veteran newsman Francis Pharcellus Church. Virginia’s question and Francis’ response remain my favorite story.

‘Old Dogs, New Tricks’

There are so many lessons to be learned from the spirit realm. Lessons we were either unable to ‘take in’ when our parents attempted to teach us many moons ago – or lessons we were not ready to learn when our grandparents walked this earth plane wishing to share their experience and advice.

It is however, refreshing to know it is never too late to learn and yes, my dear, it is never too late to teach ‘old dogs new tricks’. Read More

Hallelujah and Amen!

The month of April is chock-full of symbolism, my favorite being the resurrection of Jesus. I am of the belief we all resurrect; though perhaps not in the physical sense, although that remains a conversation for another place and time. What I refer to is the resurrection of the spirit. Our spirit; the energy and vibrancy which is unique to each one of us. Not only do I believe in resurrection, I believe in the power of connection after resurrection.

As spirit beings, we have the ability to pick up where we left off, so to speak, pick up from the point of our lives ‘B.D.’ (Before Death) and connect with those we leave behind from the moment we transition.

(There’s No Place Like) Home For The Holidays

Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays
‘Cause no matter how far away you roam
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can’t beat home sweet home*

Every time I hear that song I am transported back in time to the days of yore. Transported back to the days of my mother happily preparing for the holidays, bedecked in a Christmas apron, decorating the house in her usual flair and baking all sorts of cookies and sweet treats. As far as I was concerned, my mother, Leah, was the star on the top of our Christmas tree; her jolly presence set the house ‘aglow’.

Prepare for Your Arrival

We take ourselves with us wherever we go – whether it’s to a networking event, a family get-together, dinner with friends or the afterlife. Wherever we go – there we are.

Death is inevitable.

We will all take that journey at some point in our life, but we do not have to carry our excess baggage with us when we do. Sure, there’s no extra charge for overweight baggage, but why bother taking it when everything you need will be at your beck and call?

Are you one of the many who do not know how to let go of your excess baggage – or maybe you are not aware you are carrying it around? This baggage may be stuffed to the gills with old beliefs or behaviors you have learned to accept and even ignore.  You may accept this excess as if it is ‘your lot in life’, or your inability to forgive yourself or someone else.

Worry not – I am here to share a message from my ancestors and spirit collective.

Get Out Of Your Own Way

“Get out of your own way and deliver the message” – advice I received from my mentor when I began to tap into my own ability to connect to and communicate with the spirit realm.

For a gal who is inquisitive by nature and questions every little thing, this was counter-intuitive. I thought getting out of my own way was going to pose a problem, until I was reminded of a moment during early sobriety which helped me to make the connection. When I reflected upon this moment, a lightbulb went off and I ‘got it’! I understood the advice my mentor had shared with me.

The Heart Wants What the Heart Wants

You may have heard me say “we take ourselves with us”, over and over again. I mean that on so many levels. We take our unresolved issues, unexpressed thoughts, and even our broken hearts with us when we die. As far as I am concerned this is wonderful!

Why? Because it proves we are still accessible, vulnerable and available for conversation when in spirit. I have the pleasure of bearing witness to this phenomenon each and every day. Because as long as those in spirit, our dearly departed, ancestors and friends, are accessible and available – connection, communication, and conciliation is possible. And therein lies the blessing.

Strength in Numbers

How often have you felt isolated, alone, and wished you had someone to talk to?  Someone with whom you could hash out nagging issues, run something by, discuss options and alternatives and feel connected, supported and loved?

Imagine if you knew there would always be someone there when you needed a helping hand or a caring, compassionate ear?

Spirits Are Busting Out All Over

Yes, the heavens are rocking and our ancestors and loved ones in spirit are talking!   They are talking about important issues facing each and every one of us in this day and age.  They are sharing their wisdom and insight and teaching us from their past mistakes and successes.  Their messages are coming through loud and clear yet many of you are still unable to hear.
