This morning, I ran into one of my friends in our little Spanish town, and we decided to grab a coffee and catch up. I was delighted at how she took an interest in my Om/Aum pendant. She commented on how I seemed to treat my pendant as something rather sacred, and with respect – an interesting observation! She loved the flow of the shapes, and asked if the pendant had any specific meaning.
I had to remove the pendant and study it closely to try and remember what I was taught years ago, in order to give her a brief description to the best of my ability. One by one I tried to connect with each swirl in the design and was surprised that I had remembered quite a lot of what my mentor had taught me. It was a long time ago, when we used the Om/Aum chant in our meditation sessions.
With my pendant on the table I began to explain the meaning of the dot at the top of the symbol, and recalled that this related to the silence after chanting Om/Aum. It represents the Enlightened Self, and is known as the transcendental state of Turiya. Read the rest of this entry »
After my first encounter with spirit in 1987, at a mediumship evening at a spiritualist church, I started attending Sunday services regularly. This was not because I had suddenly become overtly religious. It was just to get more spirit messages during that particular part of each service! I was totally mesmerized by the whole concept of communication with the spirit world and enjoyed hearing the messages given to others almost as much as those that were given to me.
One evening, I received a phone call from my friend Betty, whom I had met at the church. She ran both the weekly meditation and healing evenings. She explained that there was a registration sheet for upcoming mediumship classes and that my name was on it. I informed her that there must be some mistake, because I hadn’t put my name on any list whatsoever. She laughed and said that she had put my name on the list, because after getting to know me during her evening programs, she had a feeling that I would enjoy the classes.

Reincarnation comes from the Hindu-Buddhist philosophy of soul transmigration. This is the concept of a soul moving from body to body, from one lifetime to the next. The term reincarnation comes from Latin meaning “to be made flesh again.”
Reincarnation is believed to be determined by the quality of the life that you led in the previous body. If you led a good life the results in rebirth will be a higher quality form. If you led a bad life your rebirth will be into a lower quality form.
If you are familiar with the concept karma, then you know the Law of Karma states that good deeds are rewarded and bad deeds are punished. Karma teaches that the soul should progress and become one with the universe. Reincarnation teaches that everything is God, and God is everything. Read the rest of this entry »
Sadly, mystery is lacking lately. We used to enjoy what they called in the movie industry the sense of wonder or ‘the illusion of life’ upon which so much the magic of film and theater was predicated upon. Books allowed for imagination to create pathways upon which we could grow our intelligence. We had so much of a gasp of beauty within the dreams of writers and within their dreams we could create our futures and selves. Our futures should like religion or spirit which are based upon the unknown, which should be based upon mystery and the wishes and desires to attain the unknown. Read the rest of this entry »
Dream interpretation has never been a specialty of mine. However, I do feel moved to write about a precognitive dream I had, and successfully acted upon. This dream happened during the recent Mercury retrograde in August this year.
I dreamed that my vehicle barely evaded a rear-end collision with a car in front of me. At the time, I was postponing repairing my vehicle, due to the fact that I had made the transition from working outside the home, to working from home. I am fortunate to live in a location where almost everything I need is within walking distance.
My car’s brakes were almost completely shot to the point where they were metal on metal! The dream’s message was clear: do not be foolish, and do not depend on your luck. “Get the brakes fixed!” the Universe said, in no uncertain terms. Read the rest of this entry »
At first I was amazed that the angels would help me, as I am no one special and I thought that you had to be a saint or something to have the angels come in to your life. However, I have learned from them that they are here to help anyone and everyone who needs it, you only need to ask.
You do not need to wait for them to make contact. Reach out to them and ask for their help. I was in danger at that time, and they had to interfere to save me, but you can ask them to help you before circumstances become so dire. Read the rest of this entry »
Angels are holy spiritual beings who love and serve God. They help people and do good work. These angels, who people celebrate, are faithful angels who go out into the world for our highest good. But this is not always the case.
There’s another type of angel out there. The type of angel that we don’t talk. The fallen angel.
Fallen angels are also known as demons. They work their evil, creating chaos in the world and constantly tempting us the do evil deeds.
They are angels that have fallen from grace. The angels that have been cast from Heaven. It is believed that God created all angels to be holy. They are here to help and guide us. It’s also the belief that one of the most beautiful angels, called Lucifer, chose to go against God’s wishes. He wanted power and he rebelled against God. He was cast from Heaven, down to the Earth.

I think having intuitive abilities, such as knowing things before they happen, seeing auras, and sensing negative and positive energy, is something we all can do. I just had a real knack for tapping into that part of my mind, because I spent a lot of time by myself in the outdoors, or in my bedroom, and steered clear of drama and human chaos. Also, I hardly ever was exposed to electromagnetic poisoning by way of modern technology.
I was not raised Catholic, but while on a walk one day, I found behind a church a lineup of saint statues. At the end of the row was Mother Mary. I remember very clearly sitting in front of her sculpture and seeing an angel next to her. I prayed, as I was taught to do from a very young age, to be shown what I will be doing in my future. I wished to see who I will be, or at least get a glimpse of what lay ahead for me. Read the rest of this entry »
