FROM THE ETHERS
This holiday season I did the usual by going out and looking at the lights. I love doing that. I will never get sick of it. Lights bring happiness and joy to my heart. I went about snapping pics of decorated homes in the Spiritualist Camp and posting them on my Facebook page. The best was of three alien beings with lights about them. A message underneath read: ‘Merry Christmas.’
That pic got the most likes with 20 and it reached 130 on Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp – Mayberry It Is. While we are on the subject, I believe aliens do exist. They travel about us and in our ‘dreams.’
Just the other day I heard something on YouTube about how the president knows aliens exist because he has spoken with them. Trust me when I say, I do not believe everything I hear; however, I believe there is always a small truth in there somewhere.
Backstory: A medium in the Camp, who is on the higher side of life, said he could hear the hum of the spacecraft that was above his Cassadaga home. Consequently, over the entire Camp. He heard the hum almost every night. I believed him.
I have a friend who says she can call aliens in and has done so on many of occasions. Fascinating, right? I cannot tell you how many times I have begged her to have a gathering to accomplish the feat. If I recall correctly, she said she called in the spaceships in the sky while in her backyard. Oh, I can only dream of that gathering. I must call her again.
If Santa is real, he has got to be an alien. Seriously, who flies-through-the-air with the help of reindeer? What about the never-ending bag of toys and going up and down the chimney?
I had a teacher once who asked, ‘What if we are the aliens?’ Interesting concept. Before we really decide who are aliens and who are not, we must first define alien. Think about it.
Again, I do believe anything is possible. As you know, I have seen lots of phenomena happening in my office. It’s not a stretch for me to think aliens are walking among us – just like angels.

Finished the 8-week phenomenon circle this past week. Good times! There were four of us that sat for two hours weekly. Yes, the group was small, but it was huge.
The reason Spiritualist do phenomenon circles is to prove the continuity of life, and that we did!
When I opened the door to Slater House in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, I greeted Mrs. Slater. Each time I set the room with sage and prayers. I bought a trumpet earlier this year for the phenomenon circle that was to start in March. Spirit time! In between then and the start of circle, I was gifted another trumpet. Just in case you are wondering, it is not the kind of trumpet you play; mine are silver and have three circular cones that collapse inside of one another. At the bottom of one of the trumpets is glow-in-the-dark band. We took turns bringing flowers in water to assist with raising the vibration. We sat in the dark with red lights turned low. A couple of times we saw the trumpet grow taller and one time it looked like it was going to fall but did not.
We saw spirit lights all over the place every single time we met. They danced on the floor and ceiling. I could see them on my chest when I looked downward. We decided it could be pixies and fairies since the Fairy Trail is right next to the Slater House. I sat in one of the comfy chairs and pulled the other one alongside of it. Most weeks a little girl sat in it. I did not see her, but everyone else could. She wore a white frilly dress with socks and shoes. One time I was told she was looking right at me. I turned and said, ‘hello.’ Then there was the parade of spirits up against the wall that was seen weekly by one of the participants. I could see them as well.
Yes, we heard raps and knocks. There were significant temperature changes several times, which is an indication of spirit presence. The lights would shine brighter and then lower. No, it was not the heat turning on and off. We thought of that. Trust me when I say, ‘It’s good to be a skeptic.’
Before we started that last night, I let the spirits know that we would not be back. They crowded in. We could see and sense them. The air was full. I think they loved to come around to hear our stories of other phenomenon that had occurred in our lives. When the energy lulled, we knew this time with spirit was ending – ‘til next time.

I was going through my clothes the other day to move some out. I spied my favorite blue jeans that I hadn’t worn in many years. I was delighted – it felt like springtime. And then I tried them on – a perfect fit. Joy!
I noticed there was a 1-inch hole near the left back pocket. I had another pair of old jeans and decided I could use that for a patch. It turned out the seamstress didn’t need them, so I left that pair behind.
Those jeans fit because I shed a few pounds and feel fabulous. Trust me when I say it’s not just about the pounds. I shed a lot of other things too, and will continue to do so.
Backstory: I was about 16 years old when my mother tried many times to throw away my favorite blue jeans with several holes. If they were gone, I knew exactly where they were – the garbage. A couple of times I even caught them just before the garbagemen arrived. I had a sixth sense about it. It infuriated my mother. In the end, I was outfoxed.
The law of attraction is always conspiring. I shared the topic of my blog with a friend earlier in the day. She said that’s funny. Turns out she’s going through the exact same thing with her 17-year-old daughter, only this situation involved two pairs of jeans. We laughed. I thought, ‘Oh, let her have them,’ but what comes out of my mouth, ‘burn them.’ (LOL) We laughed.
It truly is about the simple things in life. I’m wearing my new old blue jeans as I write this blog. They feel so good. Kind of like an old T-shirt – I did find one of those too!
Peace, Joy, Love and Light!
When I do readings with a client in my office, I like to have a couple of candles lit – usually Reiki (healing) infused. During a reading yesterday, I noted that there was a situation going on around the client in regards to work. Her whole aura changed and then we heard it, a crack that startled both of us. It was the glass that held the votive candle. I said, ‘There’s your sign.’ She agreed and we laughed.
Backstory: About 10 years ago my friend/master teacher/biz partner and I worked as card readers at a Renaissance Faire. We played the part well with crystals and stones scattered about. At the center of the table, a beautiful crystal ball that sat on a pedestal. The first day students came from all over the county as an educational field trip. One young man sat to receive his reading. He was little shy, but did say he thought he might have gifts. His friends teased. Next thing we knew the crystal ball cracked and the liquid seeped through. We were shocked. His friends stopped teasing because part of the message was about stepping into his power.
Energy is real. Perhaps, in these instances, it was what was needed at the time. My client surely liked the extra money she got with her recent promotion, but the stress she could do without. The young man was a little embarrassed. That changed instantly.
One might say, the glass became overheated. It was going to crack anyway. Really? Why didn’t it crack an hour earlier or the day before? Same with the crystal ball. In both instances, it happened when it was supposed to.
About a week ago I ordered two simmer pots along with several containers of sprinkles made out of soy to burn. Before my client came in yesterday, I wondered if the candles would last until my new products arrived. A couple hours after the glass cracked, I was told that my order had shipped and that I could pick it up next week. I love that!
We must all remember that everything is in Divine Order, Spirit Time. Let go and allow. I know it’s not easy. Things will happen when they are supposed to. Be patient!
