From Fire to Nature

I will forever be grateful for what I learned from my dear teacher and friend, Sobonfu Somé. She spent her entire adult life traveling throughout the world sharing the powerful teachings of ritual and spiritual wisdom from her village in Burkina Faso, West Africa. One of the many things she taught me is about the 5 elements that the Dagara people of her homeland honor and seek to have in balance in all aspects of their lives. The last digit of a year is what indicates the element for that year. Your year of birth indicates what your primary element would be in this tradition: Continue reading “From Fire to Nature”

Ask for Help

In many of the readings I do, common themes come through again and again. One of the biggest directions that I hear from Spirit, is the encouragement that we be more willing to ask for help. Here in the physical world, those of us who tend to lead more independent lives and do not like to be a drain or burden to others are sometimes reluctant to ask for help. We are concerned that if someone is helping us, we may be taking away from another person or situation that may have more serious, urgent needs.

I hear repeatedly that in Spirit, this works very differently. Help is not a limited resource. In fact, the beings on the other side who are available to help and who want to help have the ability to be fully present and powerful to multiple people in multiple circumstances all at the same time.

Healing the Whole

Today was the first snow of the season. We went out for a 6 mile trot, and it was beautiful. But it was also snowing … in my face. I found myself wanting to push, to hurry up and finish so I could escape back to the comfort and warmth of indoors. As we left town and headed into the wooded part of the route, I could heard the sweet and gentle voice of my guide whisper to me, “Patience, Continue reading “Healing the Whole”

Reflect and Release

December 3 was a beautiful, full “Super Moon”. My teacher and friend Sobonfu Somé taught me that the period from a full moon to a new moon (December 18th) is a very good time to release. We are also approaching Winter Solstice on December 21, 2017, our shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere with the least amount of daylight. Additionally, Mercury is currently in a retrograde cycle that began on December 3rd and will conclude on December 22nd. This is a very powerful time to be introspective, carving out time and space to dive inward, seeking a deeper understanding of ourselves and our soul’s journey.

“Boy, Did I Miss Out!”

Since I began working as a medium, while I have had good success connecting to clients’ loved ones, I have not always enjoyed the same success with my own ancestor connection. There are some souls with whom I can easily connect. This is immensely helpful when sometimes when I am trying to make an important decision. However, there are other loved ones I have a lot of difficulty reaching.

For many months, I had been trying to connect with my maternal grandmother. Continue reading ““Boy, Did I Miss Out!””

Hip! Hip! HOORAY!

Today is the date I have chosen to officially re-launch my website and digitally step out in promoting the work I am doing as a medium. This has been a VERY interesting year, and with each reading I do, I find my skills and understanding of this connection expanding and deepening.

There are times when I question what is happening, especially when I don’t get enough information to feel that I understand something specific. That can be frustrating at times. But I’m learning that as the “messenger,” it isn’t always for me to have a full understanding. Sometimes that just isn’t my business. What is more important is to pass along, to the best of my abilities, what I see, what I hear and what is shared with me. I find that my faith is growing as I do this work because I stumble across blessings and unexpected grace almost daily.

I am so grateful for this opportunity, and I welcome the continued journey!

Dreams … Then and Now, Part 2

In 2016, I had an unforgettable dream. In my dream, my husband and I were at a party. In the room filled with people, I realized three of the people in the room were no longer alive. I could see them and talk to them, and they me. No one else in the room had any idea they were there. Amazed, I turned to my husband and said, “I can dead people who are here.” Instead of freaking out or questioning my sanity, my husband calmly and rationally suggested I study them carefully to see if there was anything different about them. Looking carefully, I realized I could see a faint glow around each of them. Suddenly, I was instantly awake. Wide awake. I heard a very sweet and gentle voice say to me, “Choose.”

Choose? What in the world did that mean? Continue reading “Dreams … Then and Now, Part 2”

Dreams … Then and Now, Part 1

When I was 18 years old, I was the only survivor of a car wreck that killed two of my friends, Christina and Jonathan. Christina was also my roommate, and we were in our freshman year of college together. It was a devastating loss that was emotionally shattering for me in many ways. At that time in my life, I had no idea what I believed happened to the soul when the physical body dies. For two weeks following that accident, I was consumed with worry and fear, frightened of what might be happening to their souls and wondering if they were OK.

At the end of the second week, however, I had the most amazing experience, a vivid dream that was completely transformative. Continue reading “Dreams … Then and Now, Part 1”

Launching 11/30/17

I'm getting excited ... I've created this new website and will officially launch on November 30, 2017.

For just over a year now, I've been working formally as a medium and clairvoyant. My whole life, I've had very strong intuition. This was actually a pretty big challenge when I was younger because I didn't really understand my sensitivity, and frequently became confused in being able to clearly distinguish what was mine, and what belonged to someone or something else. Since 2005, I've been working in a variety of ways to expand my understanding of energy, intuition and Spirit, and I've been blessed with some of the most amazing teachers on this journey.

I'm looking forward to writing about what I am learning and sharing it here in whatever way that may prove useful and helpful to others. To here's to sharing joy and hope and insight, welcoming the peace and comfort in can bring to us all!
