Follow Your Heart

I have come to believe that we are happiest when we are aligned in our daily living with our soul’s calling. In managing the day-to-day tasks and responsibilities, it can be easy to get sucked in to doing what we think (with our logical mind) that we should be doing and struggling to clearly hear and understand our heart’s and soul’s desires. I have been awed by situations where someone, when faced with their own mortality, can suddenly and easily realize that is TRULY important, and release the worry, stress and trivial things that can be so distracting, opening to what is truly most important.

The Hawaiian singer-song writer and musician, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole performed and recorded an incredibly beautiful song, combining “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World”. When I hear this song, it is so easy for me to just stop everything that I am doing, and all that I am thinking and just breathe, feeling the happiness of my heart. This place of simply clarity is the space in which I seek to make important decisions and spend time when I am searching for guidance.

When we can find that space to really tap into our hearts, it can become easier to find our path forward, and feel strength and peace in the present moment of our lives.

Hawk-sign

Earlier this week as I was finishing getting dressed to head out the door and begin my day, I happened to look out my window in time to see a beautiful red-tailed hawk enjoying a freshly caught breakfast on the railing of my back deck. It was breath-taking to see this bird in action! I scrambled for my phone to take a quick video and a few photos before the hawk got a firmer grip on breakfast and flew away.

Help from the Other Side

I’ve done some work with a client I’ll call “Annie.” In our first session, Annie’s father came through very clearly. When he first stepped forward, I felt such overwhelming sadness rolling off of him in waves, that it very nearly brought me to tears. Annie shared that when he was alive, their relationship was complicated from many issues he had, and his harsh criticism and emotional manipulation was tremendously damaging to her growing up.

From Spirit, Annie’s Dad made it clear that he is very much around her Continue reading “Help from the Other Side”

March 1st Full Moon

Today, March 1, 2018, is the “Worm Moon,” the last full moon before spring equinox, marking the end of winter and the beginning of spring. This is the time of year when the earthworms begin to emerge, rooting through the soil, loosening the earth for new growth.

God stir the soil,
Run the ploughshare deep,
Cut the furrows round and round,
Overturn the hard, dry ground,
Spare no strength nor toil,
Even though I weep.
In the loose, fresh mangled earth
Sow new seed.
Free of withered vine and weed
Bring fair flowers to birth.

–Prayer from Singapore, Church Missionary Society

 

Listen to the MUSTN’Ts

Listen to the MUSTN’Ts, child,
Listen to the DON’Ts
Listen to the SHOULDN’Ts
The IMPOSSIBLEs and WON’Ts
Listen to the NEVER HAVEs
Then listen close to me …
Anything can happen child,
ANYTHING can be.

–Shel Silverstein

Gratitude to the Ancestors

Great Spirit,

I give thanks to you, Ancestors, for the vision, wisdom and guidance you have shared so generously throughout 2017. I am grateful for the passion you have fueled within us and the encouragement you have offered so that we could continuously rediscover hope and helpful resources in times when we felt discouraged and uncertain.

As we step in to this new Nature year, I ask that you stick close and continue to guide our paths so that we can progress on our soul’s journey with laughter, delight and gratitude.

Ashay • Aho • Amen

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.

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!
