One never knows when Spirit(s) will show up to bring joy, happiness and laughter. Stay open to it.
I answered the phone to find that it was a potential client wanting to schedule an appointment Saturday (today). I said it was Gala Day and she might pick another Saturday. She sounded distressed because she couldn’t find her engagement ring. I said, ‘You called the right person.’ I love looking for lost items. I first saw what looked like a Navy sailor dressed in blues with the white hat (Dixie cup). I asked if she took a trip overseas. Turned out, I described one of the crew on the cruise ship. I looked a little deeper and saw a brown dresser with knobs. She said she would look again. One hour later she called to say she found the ring in a brown dresser with rings that look like knobs. Exciting news! Once off the phone, I said, ‘Thank you, Spirit.’
One of my neighbor’s and I have been comparing notes to sounds that go bump in the night. She called to ask if the people above me, which would be next to her, were in town. They were not. She continued that it sounded like a bunch of people talking and going into the apartment. As she said this, I had a vision of a group of ladies with Victorian style garb chatting away. I shared with another neighbor down the road, and we decided they were getting ready for Gala Day. Love that, Spirit!
I was taking a drive with a friend, and we were talking about how things are getting back to normal for me after a small surgical procedure. I planned on joining a new gym when I got the go-ahead. I said, ‘Just because they said I can workout Monday, doesn’t mean that I have to.’
Friend: ‘Who are you? I can’t believe you just that. I’m gonna crash my car.’
Thank you, Spirit!
‘You are not going to believe this’ was my go-to line when something big happened that was out of the ordinary. A smile would crossover my bestie’s face that would tell me, ‘Oh yes, yes I will.’
The other night I was sleeping in my Harmony Hall backroom at Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. It had to be about midnight. I distinctly heard footsteps in the apartment above me. It was odd because the people who rent the space are generally only there on the weekends. I sent a text to one person to see if the women were still here. That person didn’t know, so I sent another text to one of the renters. No response. I turned my air conditioner on, so I could no longer hear it.
The next morning, bright and early, I got a response from the text. ‘No.’ I called my neighbor pronto and shared my story. She said there had been some activity in her place – historic tour guide pins missing and the blinds in the bathroom were always different from when they left. One time the blinds were pulled totally to the top. Could this be Spirit activity? Now mind you I have had plenty in my place.
Backstory: Several times items have disappeared from my place – a high-heeled shoe and fire extinguisher to name a couple. Months later both items came back. With the latter, one of the maintenance men refused to come back to my place for six months. It freaked him out so. My crystals and candles on my dresser top are consistently on the move. And one time a Spirit touched my back. I said, ‘Get out.’ You gotta draw the line somewhere. No touching.
While sharing my story with the neighbor, I recalled hearing footsteps on other occasions. I decided to take the information to the office. After some discussion, it was decided upon – wait for it – that I call 911 the next time I heard footsteps above me. I rolled with laughter.
Can you imagine a psychic medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, which has had mediums in its space since 1894, calling the police to report possible phenomena? LOL. They’d be laughing for years to come, as would I.
Hope this gave you a chuckle this fine day!
Many Blessings of Peace, Love and Laughter!
Reincarnation, now there’s a thought.
I do believe anything is possible, so why not? If it is truly so, I do believe we have all been in Egypt one time or another. I love my King Tut and Nefertiti busts. I so resonate with them.
They were my friend’s, now on the higher side of life, and her husband gave me a choice of what I wanted. There were probably eight or nine Buddha statues and then I saw the busts.
Backstory: I truly resonate with Nefertiti. She first came into my vision during meditations in a channeling class. Her neck was a bit more elongated in the visions. Additionally, she comes to me when I need healing.
I do believe that we are in Soul Groups before we come to the earth plane and we make sacred contracts with those in our group, so that we are able to learn, ultimately raising our vibrations. It makes sense that we have been here many times and with the same Souls.
To consider your past lives, think about answers to these questions. Where do you really want to travel? While in sleep state, have you dreamt of places over and over? There’s a good possibility that you have been there previously.
Before I went to Costa Rica, I claimed to anyone who listened that I wanted to live there. Now that I’ve been I still wouldn’t mind living there at least part time. I’ve always wanted to go to Morocco. I haven’t yet but feel connected. I did dream and have visions on many occasions that I’ve been in India.
Hey, maybe I have been to Morocco and India through my astral travels. LOL. That’s a whole other story.
To find out where you have been, perhaps a medium could help. It’s what happened to me.
Back Backstory: I received a reading that I had lived previously during the world war and that I was a journalist. She continued: ‘You had a bum knee. You didn’t die from that, but it caused complications to your health. You weren’t shot there.’ She came out of her trance, and I told her that when I was younger, about 5 or 6, my knee would come out of joint. I could not bend it for hours and hours. I had to walk around straight legged until it would finally pop back into joint. During one episode, my mother took me to get it x-rayed. There was no reason why I shouldn’t be able to bend my knee. Of course, back then we never thought it could be stemming from a past life experience.
Another way to learn of your past life experiences is a past life regression. Or better yet, ask Spirit to show you. Trust your intuition. You know!
Blessings of Peace and Love!
Rey Rey, an English Shepherd/Husky, and Dante, a Corgi, both loved to meditate with me when I resided with my daughter for several months in 2017. They always knew that time of day. They would look at me like ‘is it time?’ I’d go to my room, and they would follow, not much of a stretch – what dog doesn’t follow you? LOL
Seriously though, I would lift Dante on the bed and Rey Rey would lie under the bed; sometimes she would get in bed too. It was mighty cozy in the single bed if she did.
One must be comfortable for such an undertaking, meditating.
First, turn some music on – nothing upbeat or something you know, lie down and allow your arms to rest at your side with palms up in receiving position. Set an intention, maybe you’d like some peace, body/mind/spirit healing, to meet your guides. Once everything is quiet, you might start thinking about what you need to be doing other than meditating. If that happens, focus your attention on your Third Eye, the space between your eyebrows, and your breath – in and out. That will bring you back into a meditative state.
The room was always a peaceful place when meditation was on. Nothing moved those fabulous canines. I’m pretty sure they fell asleep. No one can really be sure what occurs with them while in meditation.
Backstory: I meditated with the family dog, a Shih Tzu named Missy, for years. In one instance, about 20 minutes into the meditation, I heard a whisper of a voice. It was a woman’s voice shushing and soothing. I thought I was hearing things at first, and then I heard her again. Next thing I knew Missy was having a dog nightmare. Spirit was trying to soothe her. In the process, it took me out of mediation.
For those who sit in meditation, set the intention that you will be meditating and tell your dog or cat that you will be doing so. It’s best to pick a time of day that you can regularly meditate – same time, same place. It will become familiar.
Mediation does assist in connecting with your dogs. Like humans, mediation assists with anxiety and brings a calmness. I’m thinking cats enjoy this time as well. Some of my friends say that cats will lie on them during meditation, either way – cat or dog – I believe they are connecting to the calming vibrations of their human.
When I moved out, I eventually came into the habit of bringing treats for Rey, Rey and Dante. To this day, when I’m at my daughter’s house, Rey, Rey lies at my feet no matter where I am at.
Meditating connects you!
I have been forced to change my routine. It was slow at first but now that I’m in the thick of it, I’m loving it.
I wake up at whatever time I want, take a walk around the neighborhood – Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp – and get busy with my day. This past week I organized for two online classes coming up and got my desk in order. I have edited my instructional book on how to grow your psychic gifts and sent it on to my readers. I’m hoping this will be the last edit.
Backstory: For years, you could find me at the gym by 5:30 a.m. or 6. I was such in a routine that I didn’t have to set my phone alarm but did anyway because I didn’t want to be late for my day. I’d be back at my place by 8:30 a.m. and ready by 10 a.m. to work as medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp.
It’s what I have done for years. Slowly, I’d take a day or two not doing readings. Last year I decided to go to the beach at least once weekly. It’s a plan again for this year.
I have this thing called procrastination. Do you too? I see myself still doing it. I had two things to get done before I decided to edit that book. Now mind you I have another book about halfway completed and another one or two in my mind that will be next. Plus, I’m in the midst of a somewhat Harry Potter kind of a binge.
I’m not beating myself up because everything happens in Divine Order. My projects will get done.
I realized with a little help from my daughter that I need more friends in my life. I thought it odd because I’ve been in the mindset of helping others including Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp. I spent most of time doing this and forgot about myself for years.
Just the other day I said to my daughter, I have more friends – yes, a few old ones but a few new ones too. I’m excited about this and I’m sure she is as well. It must be said that the coming of my grandson has completely changed my outlook. It has changed my life. Who knew you could love anyone more than your own child?
Take a look at your life and see what changes can be made to make you a happier person. You may think that you’re happy now and maybe you are. Sometimes you gotta let go and be. I still plan on helping others and Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp – maybe, not as much as I once did. I need time for myself and perhaps, you do too.
