I have asked my spirit guides to speak directly on the subject of suicide, and this is what they had to say:
“The end of your physical lives is inevitable. You are all aware of that, and yet you tend to try to pretend that this is not so. You must always remember that you are spirit form and have simply taken on a physical form in order to become a material or physical manifestation of your spirit self.
When you agree to leave the spirit world in order to ‘live’ as you call it, in the physical world, you ‘sign’ an agreement in the spirit world. This agreement includes several things, but most importantly, you agree to learn certain lessons. How these life lessons are brought to you is not agreed upon. Many spirit entities return to the spirit world not having completed the lessons that they set out to learn in the material world, but they always learn at least some of their lessons.

You’ve reached a point in your life where you have thought about having children. Chances are, you have already passed other milestones in your life, such as finishing your career and getting married, and you see having children as the next logical step.
Forget the fact that children are expensive. Keep in mind how much you make at your career per year. Children cost around $250,000 to raise over a lifetime. Divide that by 18 years and you get $13,888.88 per child per year.
It adds up pretty quickly if you have more than just one child, and can quickly put a strain on your already fragile finances. With the current divorce rate at around 50%, never assume that you and your spouse will be together forever to help split the expenses. Read the rest of this entry »
My first spiritual teacher said to me, at least a thousand times, “Words have power!”. It was hard for me to understand then what she was talking about, but that is no longer the case.
As a special needs teacher I soon learned the value of pictures as language. I had various deaf students who were unable (or had not been taught how) to speak. I also worked with kids with Asberger’s and autism. The same is true with a blind child – their most powerful asset is the ability to communicate to get what they want or need.
Living in a foreign country makes it imperative that I learn to at least say “bathroom” and “phone.” Well, maybe not phone if I have a phone that can go international, but a visitor certainly needs to know how to ask for a restroom. Without that information, he or she is unable to satisfy immediate needs. Read the rest of this entry »
Early in life I looked for comfort in nature. As a rejected only child (my parents wanted six sons), I was often wandering on my own in nature’s garden. Long-term friendships did not exist, because my dad was in the military. We moved as much as seven times in nine months. Nature was my trusted playmate and my elder teacher.
My strong religious upbringing gave me cause to read a great deal, but dual faiths in one household sent me mixed messages, so I questioned everything related to the patriarchal faiths of my parents. Read the rest of this entry »
We all know people who have come in and out of our lives at just the perfect time to say just the right thing at just the right time. Some of these wonderful people may have stayed in our lives, or perhaps left just as quickly as they came.
I have had several experiences with Earth Angels, but looking back maybe they were not of this earth at all. When I think of Earth Angels, I think of one person in particular and that is my Mother. My mother has taught me many things that has helped me in my life. She has taught me the fruits of the Spirit by applying them in her life.
So, with this blog post I simply wish to thank my mother for being present in my life. Read the rest of this entry »
My student, Alison, had called me years before, because her first-born son, Jeffery, had died. The doctors called it a natural abortion, but they already knew he was a boy. Therefore, to her he was her son, whom she named Jeffery. After that incident, the doctors advised her, “You will not be able to have children.”
Sharing her grief with her father one day at work, as they were employed in the same office, a co-worker, who had a fundamentalist faith, overhead them. She immediately offered her unsolicited opinion to Alison, “You had bad thoughts and killed your baby. God is punishing you by not allowing you to ever be a mother!” Read the rest of this entry »
Early one morning, I recently received a message from Judy, a client of mine, to say her close friend had been shot and killed before dawn that day. Judy wanted to know if I could try and communicate with her friend.
It was too soon for spirit communication of any kind, but later that morning I did try and connect as promised. I felt we were dealing with a soul who was stuck, not quite knowing where she was after such a sudden death. I told Judy that we needed to help her friend find her way to spirit, to the light.
I asked her to remotely assist me in helping her friend in order to guide her to the light; I made suggestions to Judy on how to go about this. I felt that Judy’s friend was temporarily earth bound and that our guidance and prayers would help her, even if she chose to remain close to loved ones for the time being and make her presence known, until they were able to find some peace with her sad passing.

Native Americans first called horses “Medicine Dogs.” There was no word at the time for these strange animals that seemed to heal with just energy. Today all horse aficionados know all too well how easily these animals heal.
As an equine therapist, I have seen so many children and adults with disabilities, who often appear very uncoordinated on land, look perfectly graceful when they are on the back of a horse. I have also observed terrified children becoming calm within just a few seconds of touching a horse. Horses really are strong animal medicine.
They say that every horse deserves the love of a young girl. I also think that every child deserves to have a horse as a friend. These giant animals have a sixth sense about children. It is like a switch is flipped when a horse and child meet. Horses run in herds, and therefore, being alone is terrifying to them. However, the majority of them will ignore their own fears when carrying a child. Read the rest of this entry »
