Let the Heart Lead the Way

My husband, Phil, lost his favorite pair of gloves.  Phil has very unusual hands.  His fingers are short with a square palm.  Phil has a Fire Hand – as Palmistry calls it.  (As a palmist, I told Phil when we first met that I had to read his palm before I would dance with him.  Not only is his hand shape an unusual one, he had some markings and lines I’d never seen before.  Phil’s Fire Hand means he is intense and driven.  So, I thought, “Well, what the heck!  This should be interesting!”  Our lives together have been “interesting” to say the least!) 

My palm shape, by the way, is a Water Hand – long palm, long fingers as one who is in touch with emotions, intuition, and psychic abilities. (Surprise! lol)  FYI, an Air Hand is one that has a square palm and long fingers.  This person is intellectually curious, analytical, and usually can communicate clearly.  An Earth Hand is pretty square in shape – square palm with fingers equal in size with the palm.  These individuals are grounded, stable, salt-of-the-earth kind of folks.  More often than not, I’m finding people with combinations of these characteristics, so these are gross generalities. People are often a mixture of these characteristics and qualities.

So, with Phil’s Fire Hand, finding gloves that fit is a real challenge.  Most men’s gloves that are wide enough for his palm are too long in the fingers. So, he decided it was time to look through an old tub of winter stuff to see if there were any suitable gloves in there.  We hadn’t touched that tub for several years and it was crammed in a closet with blankets stacked on top. 

Amazing the stuff that can be found when we take the time to look.  Lo and behold, there was a second pair of gloves just like the ones he had just lost!  He was delighted.  I also found the glove mate that had gone missing last spring.  (Like I said, we had not been in this tub for several years, so finding the missing glove was pretty strange.  Hmmm.  Interesting.)

We also found zip out hoods to coats we no longer own – those get to be tossed.  We also found several pairs of gloves that didn’t fit right.  Those can be re-homed.  We also found some other usable items that we didn’t even remember we had!  Fun!  Kind of like a mini-Christmas!

The key will be where to put those items so they are used and not just put the back in the tub to hibernate for a few more years. 

So it is with our spiritual gifts.  We store them away because we are not using them.  Our child-like wonder gets stuffed away because we are busy earning a living.  Or, our intuitive insights get stuffed because our world calls for us to focus on the facts.  Or, our ability to heal ourselves and others because, well, we don’t really believe we can do those things – even though a mother’s kiss makes any boo-boo feel better.  We toss our joyful exuberance out the window because life seems to require us to be serious all the time – or it has sucked the joy right out of living!

Even though we may not recognize them at the moment, those gifts are still there.  Waiting for our attention.  It’s not use it or lose it.  No.  Those spiritual gifts are just waiting for our renewed interest and attention.

What are spiritual gifts?  (I Corinthians 12: 4-11)  Being able to serve others with a warm heart is a spiritual gift (manifestation of Spirit for the common good).  Not everyone can do this!!  Using one’s time and energy wisely is a spiritual gift (word of wisdom) and to be able to share this with others (word of knowledge).  Not everyone can or will do this!!  Deep faith in a power greater than one’s self is a spiritual gift (faith).  Not everyone can perceive with expanded awareness!!!  Healing abilities is a spiritual gift.  With the myriad of healing modalities out there, it’s not the modality that heals – it’s the one Divinely gifted with spiritual healing - the one who is wielding that Divine Connection using healing techniques that can assist the healing process for themselves or another (gift of healing). 

Being able to intuit the signs along the way is a spiritual gift.  What a beautiful gift to be able to perceive life from this perspective (prophecy).  Discernment, knowing what is right for you and what is not, is a spiritual gift. How powerful to be able to rely upon one’s Divine Connection to know one’s truth rather than falling prey to other people’s opinions (distinguishing spirits).  Joy is a spiritual gift!  Can you allow that to re-awaken within you?  Child-like wonder allows us to see things from the perspective of innocence and delight.  How cool is that!?!

Don’t feel like you have any spiritual gifts?  Ask for spiritual gifts to be gifted to you!  They are GIFTS!!!  We don’t earn them!  They are GIFTS!!  Be open to receiving these gifts!

Once you ask, follow your open heart to discover and learn new ways of being present in your own life and the spiritual gifts will reveal themselves to you.  You will discover ways in which to access and utilize these spiritual gifts to help yourself and to be a blessing to others.

Whether you once had a spiritual gift and it’s been tucked away, unnoticed for years, or perhaps you feel you have not yet received a spiritual gift - Open up.  Ask.  Notice.  Pay attention.  Follow the guidance you sense, or feel, or discover. 

Your gift can change the world.  Your gift, re-awakened or newly received, will bless you and the world around you.

Replenish!

I was going to pour myself some Kombucha tea into a glass the other day.  It’s a great probiotic and actually quite refreshing.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention to what I was doing and shook the bottle before I opened it.  It foamed all over the counter in an unstoppable wave of liquid and bubbles.

I grabbed the nearest thing to catch the spill—a sponge.  Unfortunately, the sponge was dry.  It couldn’t pick up any of the rapidly expanding pool of foam.  I wetted the sponge quickly and rung it out.  Than it happily sucked up most of the spillage.  A couple of squeezes of the excess into the sink and the happy sponge sucked up more.

I think we get dried out spiritually.

We cannot absorb anything.  We cannot sense anything.  We cannot release anything because we are spiritually dried up.  We are not functioning as happily as we would like. 

The symptoms of spiritual dehydration are fatigue, listlessness, irritability, rigidity, and a general meh feeling.  Sound familiar?

It’s easy to allow life to suck the joy right out of us and leave us all spiritually dried out.

My happy little sponge couldn’t receive anything until it was flooded with water and then that water squished out.  That left it ready and able to pick up whatever moisture was there.

You’ve heard me refer to empaths as “The quicker picker upper” like the paper towel.  And yet any of us can get spiritually dried out and not pick up anything of value anymore.  Anything negative is registered and we just sit and drown in it, but that negativity doesn’t replenish our absorption abilities.  If anything it dries us out further! 

So, how do we refresh our spiritual absorption abilities?

We put ourselves into the flow.  The flow is all around us, but without our attention, we cannot receive it.  How do we awaken our attention?  With intention.  With the attention, we awaken our intention to be within the flow.  Just like the sponge under the flow of water, we receive the flow of spiritual energy and are renewed to our happy purposefulness.

Try it now.  Notice that there is light around you.  Even in a darkened room, there may be a glow of light from a computer screen or a night light.  Allow this to register in your awareness. Now, create for yourself a visual of Divine Light from Source flowing around you.  It’s just there.  You don’t have to do anything but become aware of it.  Give the Light permission to flow into you.  Now see this Light of Love flowing into your body.  Allow it. 

Ahhh.  Can you feel that?  Yes!  Maybe even just a little, depending upon how spiritually dried up you may be.  (A dried prune takes longer to absorb water than a sponge.  If you are feeling more prune-ish than sponge-ish, allow yourself to open up more. Sponges have lots more holes than prunes.)

Now you have the capacity to receive spiritual guidance and insights along with a deeper sense of connection with the Divine and with all things.  May this process bless you richly!

Ghost Stories

Ok, so I’m a bit weird.  Well, maybe more than just a bit.  I don’t see things like other people do and, I see things that other people don’t – like auras, spirit guides, symbolic insights, and dead people.

Did you know there are two kinds of dead people?

There are those that have crossed over and are in the Light and there are those that are stuck in the grey place – we call those guys ghosts.  The ones that have crossed over are loving and supportive of us as they are sustained by Divine Light and Love.  We can communicate with them and receive encouragement and an abiding connection of love.  You might even notice their presence as a soft glow of light out of the corner of your eye. Or a song coming to mind that reminds you of them.  They are not stuck here.  They dwell in the heavenly realms and visit now and then.

Ghosts, those spirits that haven’t crossed over, tend to feed on emotions.  Good news/bad news with this.  If a ghost is looking for the light, we can help them find it. It’s like bugs drawn to a porch light in the summer.  A lost spirit will see the light in a person and be drawn to it.  Once drawn to us, they can observe and learn more about life and how to best live it.  When they figure things out, they effortlessly cross over – we may not have even known they were there.

Then, there are those that were so stuck in life that they may be drawn to our light, but only to extinguish it.  These guys can be a real nuisance.  They relish it when we get angry.  They feed on that anger and amplify it back to us.  They feed on fear and sadness as well.  The more energy they absorb the more likely they are to move objects and cause disturbances.

Of all the years (over 40 years) I’ve seen and worked with the spirit world, these dark things are very rare.  They stick in places where intense emotions have repeatedly been experienced – like abandoned hospitals or prisons.  I’ve only seen a few existing with living people.  Usually, those people have been going through some really difficult things and are stuck in a dark place themselves.  As a person reclaims their own joy, the dark things go away.  Once in a while, a clearing ceremony is necessary.

I’ve known of a couple of families who boast about having a ghost.  I’m not so sure about that.  They are not pets.  Those spirits are feeding on something.  I sure wouldn’t want it to be my energy or my emotions. 

So, what to do if you have a ghost or think you do?

Did you just bring in an antique piece of furniture?  Often, spirits will cling to past belongings.  If this happens, first thing, try not to freak out.  Remember, they feed on fear, anger, sadness, etc.  With a calm state of being, you can speak to the piece of furniture and tell it that you will care for it and honor it and it’s okay for its owner to go to the light.  Then visualize in your mind’s eye a doorway of light and tell the previous owner that it’s okay to go. 

Let’s face it, if a doorway opened to your dream vacation with all expenses paid, wouldn’t you go?  Whatever unfinished business or stuck energy that spirit might have can be overcome with this method.  Just be encouraging and bless them on their journey.  Most spirits are just waiting for permission or encouragement to go.

Did you come into a residence that has weird stuff happening? 

This might be a bit more challenging.  Remember to start with your own positive state of being.  Do whatever you need to do to get in that state of mind.  Meditate, pray, listen to uplifting music – whatever.  Open a door or window at one end of the house, then start at the other end of the residence and bless every room and every corner of every room.  I like to use a candle or do some drumming with a Native American drum.  I often burn sage and let the smoke clear the way.  (Watch out for smoke alarms!!)  Say a prayer as you go, like:  Loving Spirit of Light, please remove any sorrow, fear or loss and fill this space with the Living Light of Love.  Ghosts just float on out the open door or window.  When you are done, close that window or door, and tell the ghost:  This is MY home.  You may not return.  Go to the light.  You will find peace there.

I strongly encourage you to continue to bring yourself into an uplifted, positive state of being.  Read motivational writings, pray, meditate, listen to uplifting music.  Watch your negative thinking and counteract that with gratitude.  You don’t want to give any other spirit a foothold in your world.

Certainly, I’ve experienced more difficult situations than what I’ve written here.  In the past, I would “cast them out” with a loud voice and 3 sharp claps of the hands.  And then, I experienced something that really changed my perspective. . . I was working long distance and asking Jesus to help me transfer a horrible spirit into a crystal to keep it away from the homeowner’s family.  I saw the spirit move into the crystal as if it were being thrown into prison, but this time, Jesus went in with it.  It raged and howled and threw itself against the bars and Jesus just stayed there. Compassion and kindness rolled off the image of Jesus I was seeing.  I got the feeling that I needed to just let things be as they were, so I put the crystal next to another huge crystal and walked away. 

Days later, I picked up the crystal and tuned in again.  This time, Jesus was sitting next to a broken figure of a man.  Tattered clothes, scars on his body, and his head in his hands.  I could hear him wailing.  Jesus just sat there with him, gently waiting.  I replaced the crystal and went on about my business.  Several weeks later, I picked up the crystal again.  This time I saw the man leaning on Jesus and crying softly.  My next visit with the crystal revealed the bars of the prison were gone.  The man was standing tall, smiling, and wearing a suit.  Jesus was leading him toward the open portal of light.

It was the most beautiful transformation I had ever experienced.  Love wins.

Hope I didn’t take all the scary fun out of Halloween for you.  Just know that if you have a ghostly encounter, your first response might be to be terrified.  Rightly so!  If you can find your own way to peace and compassion, you can help lead the lost one to the light.  Oh, sure, there is probably some religious stuff that you could do, but just know this . . . love wins. 

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Visioning

Your Ascension Journey has taken you far. Your willingness to awaken into your own life has been a powerful process. You’re allowing your expanded awareness to guide you and support you has blessed you greatly.

We've shared with you many techniques to assist you on your Ascension Journey. Practiced, these techniques will continue to bless you through your life of discovery.

Our vision for you is you visioning for yourself. You have the tools and the techniques to allow yourself to "see" and perceive guidance directly. You are strong enough to know when to open to Spirit contact and when to wait. You know that even in moments of duress, you can open to Spirit with a pure heart and an open mind. You also know that it is best to wait when overcome with judgment and fear-based thinking. The over-thinking mind or the over-whelmed emotions block your expanded awareness. Do you feel the truth of this?

Distress in and of itself does not block Spiritual Connection. One's attitude or state of being about the distress does block Spiritual Connection.

If you feel you are stuck in judgment of a situation being bad, certainly pray about this! God hears this and responds! However, avoid tools of divination or "visioning" while preoccupied with this state of mind as it will distort your reading. The same holds true with fear-based overwhelmed emotions (which includes rage and hate - both based in fear.)

So visioning is a high vibrational tool. You are ready for this tool with only minor setbacks into the over-thinking mind or fear-based feelings of overwhelmed emotions. Knowing that these setbacks are part of your human journey allows you to experience them and move on beyond them.

Moving beyond them allows you the opportunity to "see" that which you seek. Moving beyond them allows you to "know" that which you ask.

Moving beyond these allows you to find your answers and know the truth that will guide you.

We will see you in "The Visioning. . . "

Messages From The Ancient Ones – This Now Moment

The moment of Awakening is now. The time of expanded awareness is now. The day of healing is now. In this now time, you transcend time. Time has value for you as you flow from one event to another. Yet, for your spiritual progress, time slips into eternity - feeling as if time is suspended and feeling as if time is flying past - all at the same time.

Time restricts you not. You may feel pressured to accomplish this or that before the day comes to a close. Yet, you can expand time effortlessly with your intent. Stress and fear contract time in your perception. Please notice that as you focus upon the task at hand, time can and will expand if you let it. Constantly slipping out of focus to worry about what comes next, shuts down the expansion of time - time slips away from your grasp and you feel even more behind.

Grant yourself ease within your time constraints by applying your attention to what is at hand and releasing other tasks and duties. Tasks and duties rob you of delight and joy. Time expansion is fueled by delight and joy.

Because you have seen the hands of a clock's second hand tick quickly by, you perceive that this is the only flow of time. Moments expand as you fully engage in your activity with a joyful and delighted heart.

Next time you feel rushed or pressured by perceived time constraints, try this... select one thing to do that you would like to have completed (or have at least a good start) by the end of the day. All other things, bless and set aside in your awareness. Then your full energy field is engaged in the task you have chosen - rather than fragmented with holding on to those other things consuming your energy. Once your full energy field is engaged in the task, delight in it! You are getting to do what you chose to do! If you were enslaved, you would have no such choice. This choice is your freedom! This choice is the product of your intent! Relish this choice. Your energy field will find things to delight in along the way! Let this surprise you and delight you even further!

How does one bless and set aside?

Notice each task you are choosing, for now - for this now moment, to set aside. As you notice this task, notice that it has importance to your soul otherwise it would not even be under consideration. Thank your own soul for noticing this importance. Value your willingness to be of service or to accomplish this task. Yes, you say to yourself. This is important. Just not for this now moment. This blesses that task with your awareness. To set this task aside, tell this task, I will remember you. You may wish to make a note of this task. Set the note and the task and the awareness of the task aside by shifting your awareness away from it and onto the chosen task instead.

Know this. If some set aside task becomes urgent, it will arise in your awareness and you can effortlessly shift gears to take that on with your full intent. If it does not arise in your awareness, you have chosen wisely to bless and set aside for this moment of now.

As you do these things, time expands for you. You will find you accomplish more than you thought possible. You will also find delight and joy in the moment of now that you abide within.

We abide with you in this now moment.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Energy Breeze

A gentle breeze is blowing. Not a physical breeze, yet a flow or movement of energy breezing by. This energy comes to refresh your soul. Allow it to carry away from you any distress or mistrust. It can gently lift up and sweep away this unwanted energy.

It only requires your permission. By granting permission, you activate your awareness and you engage your intent. These two actions integrate this gentle flow of energy into the clearing process it has come here to do. This, too is new energy to your planet. In times past, your negative energy would need to be grounded out or physically swept away. With this new energy, your awareness and your intent are all that is required.

Allow yourself to sense this energy flow. Its gentle nature is of a higher vibration than you are used to, so take a moment to notice it. Once you do, it is like a gentle sigh of release washing past you. Take your time to notice this. Again, it is higher energy than you are used to and may take a moment to recognize.

Once you notice this energy breeze, begin to notice the stress and tension within your being - physical and ethereal being. This tension stems from distress - things not going the way you prefer or from mistrust - feeling unsafe within your self or regarding others. Notice these two types of stress and tension.

Grant them permission to leave you by saying either, "You may leave me." or "Thank you, but no thank you, be gone." (Thanking this energy is very powerful! It is here to protect you by bringing a disharmony to your attention! No need to hate it or be angry about it or resent it, just honor it and give it permission to be gone.) Or find your own words that can assist you in granting permission to go.

Once permission is granted, the energy breeze can do its work. It sweeps over you and through you to clear this released energy. It may take a moment or two to clear depending upon how long you've experienced the distress and mistrust. Just notice and allow it to clear for you.

Once this energy breeze has done what it came to do, it will slowly soften and dissipate. You can call this energy breeze back to you at any time - rather, it is always here, yet only active when your awareness touches it. Reactivate this energy breeze with your awareness with intent to clear.  The result will be clearer focus, clearer body experiences and clearer emotions. We hop you will utilize this new energy breeze often as it is needed at this point in your world.

As you clear your own self, the energy breeze can begin to clear inanimate objects that hold energy in your world. An angry exchange between people can leave a residue of distress and mistrust on walls, chairs, floors, etc. It is time for your whole world to clear, is this not so?

May this energy breeze blow sweetness into your whole life.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Golden Light

Golden moments await your attention. These golden moments are not unique in and of themselves . . . more of the same day to day that you always experience. However, these golden moments are moments of Divine Connection granted to you by your own awareness.

Each time you notice something in your life with gratitude, you experience a golden moment. Each time you notice another person with compassion, you experience a golden moment. Each time you center yourself in your own awareness, you experience a golden moment.

Within these golden moments greater energies arise. Greater power exists. Profound connection happens. Awareness expands. Insights flow.

Perhaps you have already experienced these insights and expanded awareness. Shift your focus just a bit and notice the golden light that surrounds and fills these moments. This golden light holds great healing power for you along with great insights. This golden light beams straight from the heavenly realms. This golden light exists all around you at all times, yet with your awareness, the flow of light from the heavenly realms happens and your connection with Divine Source amplifies.

Why do we care? Why do we bring this to your attention? Because you are now ready for this infusion of golden light. It may appear to you as a beam of light or it may appear to you as sparkles of light around you. You may not even see this light, but it is living and active in your behalf.

Notice. Awaken. Connect. Bring gratitude into your awareness. What ever difficulty may exist in your life will be bathed in this golden light and you will become empowered to make a change, change your heart, change your mind or change your circumstances as much as it is possible for you to do so. At the same time this golden light dances through this issue and breaks loose opportunities and heals old wounds.

Healing and change become powered by this golden light.

This new energy is gifted to you now because you are now ready for it. Take it on. Use it with grace.

We cherish you as you receive this light. Dance in this light, Beloved Ones. Let this light dance within you and within your circumstances.

Messages From The Ancient Ones – The Flow and Glow

Your weary heart draws near to Divine Source for comfort. How very wise of you!

Your distressed eyes seek the Light of Love and the blessings it carries. How very brave of you.

Your saddened heart yearns for peace. How very awakened of you.

Your burdened mind searches for answers to very difficult questions. How very open of you.

It would be so much easier to shut down, close off, and hide away from life. But, instead, you are on your awakening path, your ascension path, your sacred path. Those tactics no longer work for you, do they? Oh, perhaps for a short time, yet, then, your awakened soul cannot bear it and must break free to seek, yearn, search, and draw near to Love.

The results are immediate, are they not? Do you not instantly feel better? Do you not instantly experience hope and joy? Do you not immediately find ways to be of service and to change your world as best you can?

We honor you in this. We honor your choice of awakening over shutting down.

What you may not realize is this. . . when you choose awakening, you bring more light into this world. You open the gates of heaven and love streams - literally pours - down into this physical realm. Because of your choice.

The choice to be on your sacred path and to acknowledge the sacredness in this moment opens the gates of heaven. It is not as if the gates of heaven are closed, but rather, those gates await permission to open. Love cannot be forced. Light shines even in darkness - Light obliterates darkness! Yet, the flow of Love awaits permission to flow. Love is there. Love is present. Love is available. Love awaits. It's like turning on a light switch. With an active choice to switch on the light, one can actively choose to turn on the Light of Love within your world.

Your experience of Love, your experience of Light flows and glows brightly when you choose it. Choosing to notice one thing with gratitude enhances the flow and the glow. Choosing to do one kind thing enhances the flow and the glow. Choosing to hold sacred ground for another enhances the flow and the glow. Choosing to seek a new answer enhances the flow and the glow.

You can see this flow and glow when you look with your heart-of-hearts. Your feelings may tell you to be distressed while your heart-of-hearts tells you to sing. Which will you choose?

 We await your decision. We await within the flow and the glow and behold you with great honor.                        

Messages From The Ancient Ones – Truly Resting

As a butterfly emerges from the chrysalis it must wait to fly until after it's wings unfold and dry. How does it know to wait? Emerging takes energy. It has need of rest. While it rests, its wings unfold and dry. Once rested, the butterfly is ready for it's first flight. It intuitively knows how even though it has never flown previously. So, too, you may find yourself in need of rest as you emerge from your previous state of being. Honor this rest as it is vital for the rest of your journey.

Yes, you say. But there is so much that needs to be done. We understand this conundrum you humans face. Yet, you do not realize that you can rest within the emerging and still fulfill other tasks. Let us say this a different way - there is a part of you that can rest while another part of you participates in life.

There are 2 keys to this rest and participation. The first key is knowing which part of you is truly resting . . . and what truly resting truly is!! The second key is knowing what and how much to participate in life.

Key #1: Truly resting. This may be difficult for you to comprehend at first, yet it is truly simple. Truly resting supports itself in trust. When you know you are ok, you will rest even when you participate in activities. So, how does one truly trust and thereby truly rest? Trust relies upon a deep sense of knowing: Knowing you have done all you can at this moment; knowing you are loved by Divine Source; knowing you can and will face whatever comes with courage; knowing that whatever comes is flavored in your best interest; knowing that you have the power of choice and power in choice; knowing you are blessed with many things of which you are grateful. Each of these knowings allows the soul to rest.

When the soul is at rest, the body and mind can be active, alert, and productive. This true rest is not sleep nor shutting down. This true rest bestows peace upon the life force energy present within the being.

Notice your own life force energy now. It is there whether you are active or actively participating in life or just sitting quietly. Notice how your own life force energy feels. Does it feel tired, or agitated, or filled with unrest? Just notice.

Now, engage the knowings we described above. Really KNOW that you are loved by Divine Source. Know it. Feel it. Ahh. There. This is truly resting as we described earlier.

Again, really KNOW that you have done all you can do for this moment in time. For THIS MOMENT. Know it. Feel it. Yes, truly resting. Did you feel yourself breathe a little easier? We hope you did. You might want to take a deep breath and allow yourself to experience this truly resting energy.

Do you also not KNOW that everything that comes to you is flavored for your benefit? Do you also not KNOW that you, in fact, have had tremendous courage to face your life to this moment and your courage has even grown further than that! So, any new event will be faced with even more courage! Do you not KNOW the power of your own choices? Great power rests in what you choose in this moment of truly resting! Do you also not KNOW the power of your own gratitude? Yes, you do!

And as you notice these things that we bring to your attention, your moment of truly resting amplifies. Does it not? Indeed, it does. And from this place of truly resting, you can now choose what activities to engage in and which activities steal your peace. You are now more capable of wise choosing from a place of truly resting.

You have just amplified your power many times over by just reading this. Practice this and your power amplifies even more and does so quickly. What do we mean by power? We will discuss POWER at another time! For now, rest easy, Dear One. Allow yourself this moment of truly resting within Divine Power and within your own sense of peace and power.

There is so much more here for you. We have much more to share with you soon. Rest easy within the truly resting moment, Dear One.

Our love exists within this moment with you.
