A few hours ago, my nieces’ father passed away. He was only 59 years of age and had been battling colon cancer which metastasized to his spine. His fight started several years ago and had run the gamut from surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation to clinical trials at one of the world’s most well-respected cancer hospitals. Toward the end of his time on this plane, he was sent home to live as comfortably as possible for his remaining days.
The following words of comfort are general guidance from Spirit, the gist of which I have passed along to my nieces:
“It is natural to grieve for loved ones when they pass into the Spirit world, even if you know that they will be without pain or discomfort from this time forward. In the case of a parent who has died, there can be an empty feeling of having been left alone to fend for oneself in the world, regardless of the fact that the adult child might have been a caregiver for the parent during a long decline or illness.

Does he miss me? I hear this all the time. In my psychic work advising on love and relationships, it breaks my heart, because I know what it feels like to ‘not be missed’. “I wish he would miss,” me is a heart-breaking statement if ever I heard one. My heart goes out to anyone who has ever wanted to be missed.
It’s sweet when someone is in love with a righteous lover who has been a good person, with few flaws and much to recommend them. Yet, sometimes that lover leaves, or a relationship explodes. But how do you keep from letting the hurt or feelings of loss drive you crazy?
First of all, it’s not healthy to let anything drive you crazy. It should go without saying that going crazy isn’t on your bucket list, right? Read the rest of this entry »
We’ve all experienced the pain, sorrow, rejection, anger, guilt and heartbreak of losing a relationship. Whether through separation, divorce, illness or death, the feelings that these situations bring can be devastating to our person, and our world.
These feelings are real, these feelings are valid, and these feelings are completely normal. They are all part of the grieving process. It is how our mind deals with loss and enables us to heal, in order to move forward into a bigger expression of life.
One of the beautiful things about life is that we are all unique, individual expressions of the Infinite. One of the common threads that connects us is that each of us experiences the full spectrum of emotions, from pleasure to pain, and most assuredly, back again. Read the rest of this entry »
Yes, we all have angels in our lives, several in fact. Our main angel, or guardian angel, accompanies us from birth until death. And no, your crossed-over relative is not your guardian angel. A guardian angel goes through many lifetimes with you and knows all your past secrets and all your future secrets, even before you yourself are aware.
I’m sure all of our guardian angels shake their heads many times at each of us, with our irresponsible use of free will, and some of the unfortunate choices we make in our lives. I can picture my guardian angel at different points in my life, just throwing up her hands and saying, “Here she goes again – another bad life choice!” However I know she never leaves my side, which is my comfort in this lifetime.

This week your energy is best spent in remembering that you are a small part of a bigger whole. You are but one piece to the puzzle, and as the puzzle is complete it becomes a whole, so you experience yourself as a piece of the puzzle, but also as a complete whole. It is a truly delicious and glorious experience when you no longer feel separate, when you finally feel like you belong!
You have always belonged. You were never really separate. It was your belief in the illusion of the reality that your mind created that brought with it the feeling of separation, of division and competition.
I am you and you are me and together we are one in the same. When I hurt, you hurt. When I heal, you heal. Separation is a Third Dimension concept. Unity is the framework for the Fifth Dimension. Read the rest of this entry »
I have always had an interest in behavioral sciences and marketing, as well as spiritual work and the paranormal, and used this as a way of studying people’s needs, and applied it to learning cultural philosophies world-wide.
What I have found in my research is that one can intuit people’s habits as if it were a science, in order to deeply understand their collective nature. This would hopefully be an expression of their mean needs, their collective needs, or the predictive ratio, in order to see what their cultural needs were. From this arose the question: is Planet Earth happy today? Do people need more, not less material goods? Do they need more, not less love and affection? Are they less, not more aggressive? Was my perception less, not more affectionate? Yes, it also forced me to evaluate myself. Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve been friends with Gail and Paul since they were my neighbors in San Francisco, 22 years ago. This was long before today’s popularity of digital technology and our growing dependence on wireless, hand-held devices, such as our smart phones, tablets, laptops, and now even our watches.
Our homes were next to each other and the backyards adjacent. Over the fence, we exchanged conversation, shared Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and frequent “tastes” of new recipes. Life happened and in time they moved away. Later, I also moved, but we continued to exchange phone calls and written notes.
For the past ten years, I have been living in the Pacific Northwest, a mere three hour drive from Gail and Paul. We eventually reconnected and now keep in touch mostly through Facebook posts, videos and photos. Gail chronicles their life on the farm they now own. Through social media, she’s inspired me to also grow vegetables and fruits, and I’ve inspired her to save seeds from harvests to plant the next Spring. Read the rest of this entry »
Just under a decade ago, a decision I made to let my eight and a half year old Rottweiler Sophie go, was one of the hardest things I have ever been faced with. Sophie had suddenly become ill over the course of four days and nothing could have prepared me for the subsequent grief. Although time heals, I still recall the way it felt when she was gone – like my heart was being ripped from my chest.
Grief can be described as the universal response to loss, and a very natural, yet terribly painful internal process. When there is a significant change, or loss in one’s life, grief is both a physical and emotional response to that change. Grief brings its own stresses, and continued grief actually compromises our immune system, because all cells in our bodies are affected by intense emotions. Read the rest of this entry »
