This message is about relationships. Recently my Guides have been encouraging me to work on my second book, and there are some parts in the book that I want to include but I am hesitant due to the sensitive nature of some of the material.

I had a friend years ago. She was in my estimation the best friend I had ever had in my life up to that point in time. I remember the day she first walked into the church that I attended. She came in and sat with her family in the row in front of the one in which I was sitting. There was something magnetic about her energy. I knew from the first moment I wanted to know who she was.

It turned out that she was a person who heard and received messages from Spirit. In the church I attended we called them prophecies. Up until that time my gift was either nonexistent or dormant. She woke up that part of me that listened to Spirit and gave and received messages. She became my best friend and mentor. We had what I would call a somewhat tumultuous relationship. I imagine at that time in my life I was a difficult person. She always told me that I was the person who she could depend upon to tell her the truth, no matter how painful the truth was. In other words, I had no tact. Some of the messages I received were difficult for others to receive. I challenged everyone and everything. I had not learned the lessons of acceptance and tolerance yet.

Anyway my friendship with this woman was at times difficult. She saw me through my personal demons at the time. The last time I saw her she was in a minor car accident on the way to visit and the vehicle she collided with happened to be a Postal truck. To me this was a sign that we would once again collide. And I never saw her again.

The reason I tell this story is because all of us in our lives have relationships with people that are important to our soul's growth but at some point in time it becomes difficult to maintain this relationship for one reason or another. Many times we are hesitant to let go of these relationships. However, our souls are on a mission. In this lifetime we have many roads to travel and many lessons to learn. Along the path we tend to find relationships with those who are on a similar path. Our vibrations are similar and this is what attracts us to certain people and away from others. But at some point we grow and they grow in a different direction and Spirit knows that our souls need to learn lessons and have experiences that do not include one another. And so we may move away from each other or we may have a fight or a disagreement. Spirit finds a way to separate our souls. Today Spirit wants you to know that it is okay.

Over the years I have had many relationships that fed my soul and then it seemed that I didn't have any contact with that person for a very long time or it seemed that circumstances took us in different directions. I often would wonder what happened. Spirit has let me know that when our energies change, so do our relationships. We may find it hard to tolerate an individual who we once adored. It is so important in our day to day relationships with others to honor the soul of the other person as they work out their own journey and, if it is necessary, send their soul love as they move away from us in one form or another.

For this reason I have become hesitant to use the word "forever" when talking about a relationship. My husband and I are very close but we have been at odds at my unwillingness to say "forever" when speaking of our commitment to one another. To me, this was a condition I could not commit to. Who knows what paths our souls may take in this life or the next and I wanted to allow my husband and myself the freedom to walk the path that was in our highest good, without the burden of a promise he or I could not keep.

Eventually, however, he won me over when he explained that love was not a chain holding us to one another but instead a gift we gave one another. In whatever form our relationship takes, he said, I will love you forever. This I could commit to.

So to my friend from the past who I credit with awakening within me my gift, although it lay dormant for many years after our friendship had ended and was once again reawakened by another gifted individual, I say, thank you. And to all the other people who have walked in and out of my life, I am grateful for the imprints you have left and the gifts you have given me. And to all those relationships who currently mean the world to me, I say, yes, I will love you forever. For love has no chains or bonds, but it is a freedom to be who you are and for me to be who I am, and for this I am grateful.

Pay Attention!!

Spirit has many ways of communicating with us. Many times we in our busy lives don't take time to pay attention to the signs all around us. The good news is that Spirit understands the heavy energy we live in every day in comparison to the energy they live in and they take that into consideration when trying to send us a message or communicate with us. They will most often send signs to us multiple times until we realize that it is not just a coincidence that we are seeing or sensing the same thing over and over.

What may be a sure sign of something in particular to me may be totally different for you. For example, if I see a bluebird or a white egret it is a sure sign to me that my mom is around. My mom passed a few years back of cancer and frequently makes herself known to me from the other side. If I see or sense one of these two birds around, I know it is her. These were her two favorite birds while she was in body and even though she didn't believe in power animals while living, I am sure they were her spirit helpers. Now she uses them to let me know she is around. However, if you see one of these two birds, I doubt if you will interpret it the same way as I do. Once I was giving a short reading to someone and I saw a peach tree. I kept trying to get something else but this is all I saw so I told the person what I saw and she immediately knew that it was her grandfather from the other side making contact. It meant nothing to me but everything to her. Items in nature are often signs from our guides or loved ones. We just have to interpret their meaning to get the message. There are scores of websites and books that give universal meanings to particular animals or nature objects, but we have to personalize the meanings to our own experience.

Many times Spirit uses numbers as well to communicate a message. If you keep seeing the same number over and over, chances are, Spirit is trying to give you a message through the meanings of the numbers. A while back, Spirit let me know that when I saw the number 222, it was a sign that I could release worry about a family member, that they were going to be okay. Usually I saw this number when a family member was going through a hard time and I was worried about them. The Angels gave me this number and told me what it meant. I have done some studying into the meanings of numbers according to numerology, and according to one of the books I recently read, two energy denotes the energy of nurturing, sometimes to the tendency of smothering. Yes I have a bit of a tendency to do this, so perhaps Spirit was telling me to let go and let the family member experience his or her life for themselves, and only through their own experience would they overcome their obstacles. I have always loved the number 8 and recently have been seeing it everywhere. I am really excited to have the energy of this number making itself known to me repeatedly. The energy of this number relates to abundance, prosperity, power and control. Of course, these energies are wonderful but only if used properly with humility and grace. Sometimes the energy of this number is as much of a challenge as it is a blessing. Several years ago when in the market to buy a house, one of the deciding factors was that the house my husband and I ended up buying was the one whose numbers added up to eight. Also when I was choosing my PO box, I chose a number that added up to eight. In past years all the significant events in my life happened on 8 days.

These are just a few examples of the ways Spirit communicates to us. The key is to pay attention to things that happen repeatedly, whether it be numbers you see repeatedly or particular animals that cross your path or events that seem to happen over and over. If something happens to you over and over and you are unsure of the message, sit with Spirit and ask for the message. Spirit would not take the time to send the message if they knew you would never understand it significance.

Always thank the Angels and Guides when they send you a message. They really do appreciate gratitude and take it as a sign that you are open and receptive to communication from them. We are not here to prod along alone and without direction. Help is available to us. All we need to do is pay attention.

The Ascension?

I have noticed a bit of a change in my energy in the past couple of weeks.  I asked the Angels about this and they have told me that there is an adjustment taking place within me and many others.  There is a change in the frequency on our planet and our bodies are going through some adjustments. In a moment I will tell you of some of the symptoms I have noticed in myself and a few others around me who have mentioned to me feeling somewhat out of sorts.

There has been in the metaphysical circles talk of what is called "the Ascension". I have steered away from this line of thinking because it sounds too much like the theory of "the Rapture" which I was grilled on constantly when I was a child due to my Pentecostal upbringing. In the Rapture theory, at some point in time, Jesus would come back to earth and take all the people to heaven with him who had accepted him as their personal savior. All those who had not said the "sinner's prayer" would be left behind to cope with life on earth with no good on it: no force of good to keep people in line, which would give rise to an "antichrist" or some person of power who would eventually take all those left on the earth who had not made the "Rapture" straight to hell.

So in this "Ascension" talk, there are different theories, but apparently there is another "earth", just like this one, and we are being made ready for it. Some of us will rise to this new "improved" earth, and some will stay here. In some theories, our bodies will go through changes, termed "Ascension" symptoms, making us ready for this change. In other theories, there is not another "earth" but this one is going through changes, and some of us are being made ready for the upgrade in the energy field.

I had been asked what I thought of the "Ascension" and I always said that it sounded similar to the Rapture, which had tortured me as a child growing up. I was always waiting for Jesus to come, afraid I had made some mistake that would doom me to miss the boat, so to speak. I would get up in the middle of the night and go to make sure my parents were still in their bed, because surely they would go and what if they did go and I got left behind? When I finally came to my senses as an adult and realized that no Higher Power in their right mind would leave behind a child to fend for themselves just because they told a lie that day or lost their temper, then I threw the whole theory out the window and chalked it up to a means of controlling the masses. If people are afraid of some kind of harsh punishment for bad behavior, then they are more likely to walk the line and obey the rules.

So what of this ascension? It is not a theory formulated to generate fear. It is just a theory that our energy fields are changing to make us able to live on a new improved planet. Yes, there is theory in some circles that some will wake up one day on another planet that looks just like earth, only better, and some will not. I don't know about that.

What I have noticed is that I am losing the capacity to allow my boundaries to be crossed. I have lost my temper lately which is extremely out of character for me. I have noticed changes in the behavior of others also who could be going through changes in their energy field. It is possible that our energy fields are being upgraded. It is also possible that the changes are occurring in me because I have been spending more time in meditation. It is also possible that I am going through changes due to my hormonal clock. My sleep has changed. My body temperature has changed. Foods and drinks that I either like or dislike have changed. However, it seems to me that I have noticed a pattern in the past few weeks of others doing things that are out of character for them as well. Not everyone is going through menopause.

Are these ascension symptoms? I have asked my Angels and Guides and they have told me that there are indeed changes going on in the atmosphere and in the energy fields around us and within us. These changes would likely cause some adjustments that at first may seem uncharacteristic of our normal vibration. We may sleep more, or less. We may find activities that we once enjoyed to hold less appeal. Or vice versa.

Don't worry. You are not going to wake up one day and find that half of the inhabitants of the earth have disappeared. Or, then again, maybe you will. But either way there is no reason to be afraid. Remember that many of these theories come about by someone attempting to control people's behavior. This is often done by instilling fear of tragic consequences if some sort of behavior is not adhered to. However, this is my theory. As long as we are living in love, everything will be all right.

So do I believe in the Ascension? I don't know. My first tendency is to say no. But I have learned that the more I think I know, the less I know. All I know for sure is that I do feel changes. I feel the messages that I get from the Angels and Beings of Love and Light getting more specific. And sometimes I feel nothing at all for quite some time.  And even when I try if the Angels are not talking I cannot make them talk.  I am more aware of indications in my physical body that let me know when there is someone around who is not in body.  I have recently noticed messages coming from deceased family members increasing. Are these ascension symptoms? I don't know.

Be aware. Walk in love. Be kind. Do no harm. If there is an ascension, then don't worry. You will make the boat. If not, be kind anyway.
