In letting go all things are possible. Imagine that?…
Yesterday was one of those times. Spirit is continually present in my life. Jesus said, “Ask and you shall receive, and your joy will be complete” – John 16:24.
After speaking to my sister about how we as people seem to try much to hard to get things to come together. She agreed. We have a need to feel as if we are in control. Ultimately we never are. It’s all an illusion. There’s a small card in my car as a reminder that says Give love expecting nothing in return. I decided to accomplish this more frequently than I have done in the past, to see what would come about. Inspired by the results I share what I’m continuing to learn. Often times I turn to prayer when I’m not sure what to do or which way to go… Getting out of our own way really seems to allow things to flow to us effortlessly when they are meant to be.
Prayer was an essential part of life growing up in the Catholic faith. It’s what I’ve been taught. Although it felt more out of memorization and obligation to me rather than as a connection to something bigger than myself. It wasn’t until I realized later in life that prayer does a body good, it’s also wonderful spiritual tool for the soul, but that’s another blog post altogether. For now let me explain.

The day began like any other. Quickly escalating in my mind were a million thoughts…Welcome to my world.
Duke, my half dog (I share him with my friend Jay) was due to have surgery to be neutered. It’s a pretty routine surgery these days. Besides, we felt it would calm his two year old hyper puppy self down a bit. Duke is a Australian shepherd/German shepherd cross. A working dog, always on the go. We are responsible pet owners. For all of us, Having our pets spayed and neutered is the right thing to do. There are numerous unwanted pets out there in the world being euthanized everyday in shelters due to irresponsible pet owners. We did not want to contribute to those numbers. So we booked the appointment for Duke.
Even knowing how routine this surgery was. Something in my being was deeply concerned. I wasn’t exactly sure what it was though. I pulled Angel cards. I prayed for guidance. I even took my pendulum out to seek higher knowledge from my guides to get a definite answer. (Pendulums are used for yes, no or maybe answers) I wanted to know without a doubt that we were doing the right thing having Duke neutered. Something wasn’t sitting right with me. I was stumped as to what it could be. The guidance in the cards was confusing to say the least. There were many mixed messages coming through. Definitely no clarity like I would’ve hoped. My pendulum yielded a big swirling “maybe.” To me that just was not good enough. I wanted I clear concise “yes” or “no.” Finally through prayer I was able to gain clarity to a greater extent. I would continue to be shown the ’44’s” over the course of the next few days. For those of you who follow me or know me personally you understand this. For those of you who are new to my blog let me explain. I see the #44 as a Divine sign whenever Spirit hears my prayers. This particular sign tells me that my prayer requests are taken to source whether you believe it to be God, the Universe or whichever. Seeing this particular number, 44 is to allow me to know that healing will occur for the person or animal’s highest good whatever that may be. I saw so many 44’s over the course of that day and the night before that I felt we were on the correct path to move forward fearlessly. However that nagging feeling would not leave me as to why I was not feeling positive about this surgery 100%.Continue reading Signs of the Spirit ❤️→
This story is about a Holy WOW experience! On the last day of December, 2015 this Spirit story took place. Talk about going out with a Bang!?
As I arrived to work at the salon. I was met by my first client of the day out in the parking lot . I greeted her with a hug and a smile and together we walked into the salon. We’ll call this client Denise for all intents and purposes of this story.
I welcomed Denise back to my station. Wished her a Happy New Year’s Eve. I set her up for her hair color service. Before I went in the back room to mix up her color formula I asked her if she would like to pull an Angel card from the Angel pot on my crystal station. This is something I believe all my clients have come to enjoy. In picking their Angel card for the day it serves to give them clarity and guidance. She gladly obliged and she chose her first card. As she flipped this card over, we read it together. It read: “Intention.” As she looked at me perplexed. She asked me “what does that mean? I have never picked that one before.” I explained to her that the intention card means to me that she needs to set an intention in her life. Particularly since this day was the pinnacle to the beginning of the New Year. I said “what a wonderful day to pull that card.” I believe that spirit already knows what cards will be drawn even before they are chosen. Denise seemed to like my explanation. She reached in the pot once again for yet another Angel card to validate her previous card which was intention. Her next card was “Harmony”. Another important card and also a validation of Spirit’s guidance. I again explained to her that once she sets her intention (positively) things will begin to come together with ease for her and all those involved. Everything will be harmonious. This card to me can also represent the family unit or a family bond. Three or more people coming together in love. (Spirit intervened, sharing that last sentence with me as I wrote this blog post.) Interesting. I’ll have to keep that in mind. Thank you Spirit!
As I applied the color to her Denice’s hair we chatted about life, work and loads of other things. I enjoy hearing about what’s going on in my clients lives. I feel I live vicariously through them at times. Finally, I set Denice a timer for her hair to process. I sat down on one of the dyer chairs just across from her. She began to ask me about Reiki and Reiki healing. We had been speaking about the giant poinsettia plant which was in the salon as a decoration for the Holidays. I lovingly named him (the poinsettia) “Big Red.” We spoke of how this plant was doing so well in the space towards the back of the salon. The reason being I believe is the Healing Reiki that I send to it daily. It grew immensely since being place there in early November. Her eyes widened and I could tell her ears perked up! I think that most people in general are curious as to how Reiki healing works. I explained a little to her about how I become a clear channel when offering Reiki to a person, animal or object. There are even times when I have found a situation can benefit from Reiki. I Reiki everything! I have gained the nickname Reiki-Lisa from another well known medium in the area. This makes me smile as I realize I am only the facilitator. Spirit or God (whichever you believe) does the rest. I am only the vehicle through which spirit uses as a conduit to do the healing or to send the energy. I ground and they funnel or channel it through me. As we were speaking, Denise said to me “Did I ever share with you about the Crystal angel? ” I said “No…” She proceeded to share with me her sweet story…
Back in November she left an unhappy job situation. A woman from her work boxed up her belongings that were at her desk. The woman then gave them to her. In the box Denise received there was a little crystal Angel figurine with beautiful golden wings. It was beautiful she told me. Denise told me that she had no idea where it had come from. It was not hers. She had never seen it before. Whamo! In that instant I realized that her spirit peeps decided to stop by and step into my aura for a visit. I felt their presence engulf me! I swear it’s like an open invitation to spirit when one of my clients or friends begin speaking of their loved ones on the spirit – side of life. At this point I don’t even have to try to pull them in. They are simply there. It’s like the veil thins and then they are through! Clear as day I can sense them. I receive messages from Spirit via thoughts, feelings and emotions. I also have developed all my Clair’s. Which means I can see, hear, sense, know, taste & smell everything from Spirit. That is how they connect and communicate with me. Now don’t get any ideas people… This is not my intention of how I like to work with spirit on a normal basis. With them simply just popping in when they feel like it.? I have boundaries that I set. I am pretty firm on this also. This was different though. This was a hello from heaven! These kinds of occurrences I cannot stop. When spirit is that determined to come through there’s just no stopping them. As luck would have it Denise happened to be my one and only client on this day. I really didn’t mind giving this reading. It was a lovely way to end the year for both of us. Sometimes you simply have to be grateful for what is.
Back to Spirit and the Crystal Angel. Instantly I sensed a male Spirit step forward. Either a father or grandfather energy presented himself to me. We weren’t sure at first who this was and then he gave me the name Geff to corroborate who he is. Denise’s eyes became as wide as dinner plates… She shouted “Yes! That’s my Grand pop! How would you know that!” I was able to affirm a great deal of information for her. One of the things Geff showed me was a kiss. I saw a set of lips being blown in her direction. He gave me the feeling he was blowing Denise a kiss. She validated this by sharing that he was a kind man always giving out kisses. He was all about the Love. He showed me Denise’s blue eyes and he gave me the feeling that his were blue also. He said “She has my eyes.” Denice said “Yes!”
Geff went on to give me his cause of passing, which was his heart. I felt this in my chest area. He also showed me something with his foot, like a limp or something. Denise once again confirmed that he walked with a cane. I felt he was on her mom’s side of the family. She confirmed that he was. Denise began to say she speaks to him often. In particular when she needs help or guidance with her mom or about her work. Denise loves crunching numbers, and Geff gave me the feeling that he too loves numbers. In the law of attraction they say like attracts like.
I was able to explain to Denise what her Pop-pop shared with me. He does guide her. With her work issues. He’s like her guardian angel. (Although our loved ones cannot become Angels, they can guide us from the other side. The difference with Angels is they have never lived on the Earth plane.) When people cross over into the realm of spirit they have a higher vantage point to view things from. They are still the same people they were. Crossing over does not change who they are. They do not become angels or Saints. They simply can see things differently from a lofty perspective. This is one reason why Geff told me he sent Denise the Crystal angel. For guidance. She also wanted to know where on Earth it came from. She knew it was not hers. She had never seen it before. I explained to her what an apport was. Have you ever heard of this terminology? Here, let me explain.
Apport – parapsychologists and spiritualists, an apport is the paranormal transference of an article from one place to another, or an appearance of an article from an unknown source that is often associated with poltergeist activity or spiritualisticséances. Common items that are produced are stones, feathers, flowers, perfumes and animals. These objects are said to be “gifts “from the spirit(s).
I shared with Denise that the Crystal Angel her Pop-pop gave to her was a physical manifestation or an apport. He was letting her know that he guides her in life and also in her work. Also that he is there for her and that she is never alone. He also expressed to me she needs to place the Crystal Angel where she can see it. She told me it hangs in her room where she sees it daily as a reminder of him and his love. She was flabbergasted! Denise turned to me and asked if it’s normal to feel worn out after experiencing the energies of spirit? She said she was exhausted. I said to her “ab-SOUL-lutely!” All of this information is exhausting for most people to learn to connect with during one sitting. I went on to explain further how for me, Spirit’s energy leaves me tingly all over. I’m used to it. I have been doing it all my life in one form or another. It’s like a psychic muscle one needs to build up in order not to tire out too quickly. She likened the vibration of Spirit to being all jacked up on Red bull. I call it a spiritual high. The best way I can explain it to call it a spiritual morphine. Which to me is what spirit can do for the living when we are in need of “Love energy”. This “Love energy” is what comforts us in times of need from the pain of loss. This is my definition of spiritual morphine. Denise said to me “I’m all tingly inside.” I said “yes that’s how it feels. Welcome to my world. I get that feeling all day long.” When a Spirit being pulls their energy close to ours the difference in vibrational energies is palpable. This can make some people extremely emotional. Those that are empathetic feel it the most. Like when a loved one in Spirit steps in close to your own aura or energy field. This is also the time when Spirit hugs can be experienced. Spirit energy vibrates so much faster than human energy. In order for them to connect with us they must learn to slow their energy way down and we must learn to speed our energy way up. Somewhere in the middle the energies meet up. This is where I come in as the medium. My energy is naturally high by nature. I am able with my abilities to surround myself in the light of God’s love which Divinely oversees the possible union or meeting of the souls. Some call this union a soul to soul connection. I call it a spiritual heart to heart. Where only good can come to it and only good can come from it. The energy of those on the higher planes or dimensions in the spirit realms are amazing to me. I have learned so much from them. I continue to be blown away by many of the lessons they teach me and also my clients. So many lessons of love and forgiveness. Nothing else matters I’m learning. Nothing else matters, but love.
There was a boatload of information that filtered through from Geff, Denise’s Pop-pop. At this point though it was time to rinse and remove Denise’s hair color. I brought her over to the sink. I told her that she was still in an extremely heightened or open state. I explained that she may still receive information from her Pop-pop as I gave her a relaxing scalp massage. I find water to be a major conductor of spirit electricity or energy. Just as I thought, as soon as I placed my hands on her head to begin the scalp massage I was shown a beautiful red rose for her. This is one of my symbols for love, or for sending love to her. I allowed Denise to fully relax while I worked on her without speaking a word. After the scalp massage was over Denise opened her eyes and said to me “I don’t know… The only thing I kept on hearing where the words I’m sorry! I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” Repeated over and over again. She told me that those words didn’t make any sense to her coming from Geff her Pop-pop. She thought she was making it all up in her thoughts. I helped her to understand that this was Spirit communicating with her. I instantly felt that we were not only with her Pop-pop anymore, but another Spirit as well. This rather soft spoken benevolent spirit energy had stepped forward on my other side with a new message. This time I explained it was a woman connected to Geff. I felt it was his wife, Denise’s Grandmother. She was able to accept this information and validated it quite clearly for me. Her Grandmother is on the Spirit-side of life. Denise said that “her grandmother saying I’m sorry makes perfect sense now.” Denise’s Grandmother who would’ve been Denise’s mom’s mom was stepping in to deliver a message of love and forgiveness to her daughter. Both of our mouths dropped wide open! I shared with Denise that all of my readings are wonderful when spirit steps in with information to validate their existence and the continuity of life after death. That in itself is awesome! When you throw in how they are able to weave a web of connection back into our lives and assist us here in the living, to learn important life lessons for our souls’ evolutionary growth. To me this is incredibly brilliant on their part. God works in such mysterious ways. I have been humbled beyond words at times with some of the things that transpire during a session. I said to Denise that so many of my sessions are wonderful and healing for all the parties involved. However only a few sessions are what I call “WOWS!” (Words Of Wisdom, Sincerely) this was one of those times. An enormous Wow! What a wonderful way to end the year on a note of pure unconditional love and Divine forgiveness. Also a beautiful way to start the New Year off with a BIG Bang!
I love stuff like this!!! Don’t you?
Together we walked slowly back over to my station so I could finish drying and styling Denise’s hair. We were both still a bit shellshocked by what just took place. The way Spirit can bring a connection together in such a wild and unusual way. I explained to Denise how one Spirit who is maybe a bit stronger than another will step in at times. Gently bringing in or allowing another Spirit maybe who is more of a quiet soul to speak up or give a message of what I call Love from Above. They are so kind that way.
Now I had to teach Denise a crash course in how to be the Spirit messenger or honorary Spirit medium. To be able to deliver this lovely message to her mother. We both decided after speaking about it for a moment that her mother may or may not be open to receiving the message. Mainly because it’s from her daughter. Denise’s mother can be a bit close minded it times, as can many people when they are not ready to hear certain things. Denise’s grandmother, Amelia I felt was this way as well. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. We devised a plan in which to make the message come to life in a way that her mother could understand it. For her highest good. I would like you all to understand that you too can use this plan if you ever have to share Spirit information or a message with someone who may not be 100% open to receiving a message from a medium, or from you for that matter. This works no matter what their religious background or belief system is. I found it works like a charm if you use this one simple technique that I would like to share with you.
Explain to them that you had a dream of the loved one that you speak of. Everyone can relate to a dream. In this way the recipient of the message can decide if they want to accept the message or not. Some soul food for thought.. Just because we ourselves receive messages from Spirit does not mean we have to share them. We all have abilities to tune in and pick up thoughts from Spirit. We do it all day long and half of you do not even realize you’re doing it. Learning to discern what is meant to be shared, when it’s the correct time to offer guidance from Spirit and what is not to be expressed is all part of learning the art of mediumship. This knowledge comes from years of education taught from informative teachers and sitting in Spirit circles with other like minded mediums in training. It’s not something I advise that you take lightly. Your words are powerful, use them wisely. I have had this happen before where someone leaves me after a session. With all good intentions of not only sharing the wonderful messages of love and light that have filtered through for their loved ones here on Earth. Only to find out they’re up against a huge brick wall when trying to relay the message that spirit brought through specifically for that person. Not everyone is open to receiving messages from the other side. That is ok. Everyone has differing beliefs. However everyone can relate to a dream. Who doesn’t want a hello from heaven? Specially when it’s heaven sent.?
Denise could not get over all that had transpired during her appointment and frankly neither could I. Like I said in the beginning of the story this is not something I normally offer in the salon. This type of reading is what normally takes place in my office over at the Healing House, by appointment. However spirit had other plans for us this last day of 2015. Out with the old and in with The new! Happy 2016 everyone!!
I asked Denise to pull one final card before we closed her session and finished up her hair appointment. She pulled “A-wakening.” What a perfect card for her. What a perfect day, and finally in what a perfect way all this information came through for us this gloriuos day.. God not only closed the door on the old way of life for Denise. He also opened up a window to show her with love that all things are possible to those who believe. ❤️
