have always been sensitive to the world of Spirit. As a child,
I remember a small white ball of light which would float just
above a day couch in my room and sing to me at night. The singing
was in a woman's voice and was the most beautiful, calming sound.
Today, I know the light was an angel and the singing was an angel's
voice. I can still hear it in my mind today.
remember going to sleep at night and waking up in a place where
the kindliest and gentlest people would talk to me and show me
around. They looked beautiful and healthy and were filled with
light and joy. While I was visiting, I was conscious of my body
being back in the bed asleep and even though everyone was very
nice, I would try to make my body wake up because I was not suppose
to be talking to dead people (people in Spirit). In time, I trained
myself not to have these experiences. I still have vivid memories
of those excursions into the Heaven world. It is also important
to know that I was not aware that everyone was not having these
experiences. They were normal to me and I assumed they were normal
to everyone. It was only as I grew older that I became aware that
the experiences I was having were considered unusual. I had to
wait until I became an adult and found the Interfaith Ministry
before I was able to allow my gifts to manifest in a meaningful
more that I work with Spirit and psychic phenomena, the clearer
it becomes to me that all things are possible. That just as we
are infinite and eternal, so are the potential manifestations
of Spirit in the physical world. When thoughts are things, all
things have the potential to take form and manifest if given enough
energy. That is why what we think and how we think is so important.
Our thoughts have the power to shape and mold the world we live
are a Spirit encased in a physical body. As Spirit, we have a
number of natural gifts that we have inherited. These gifts include
such things as clairvoyance, clairaudience, aura sensing, prophesy,
divination, healing and others. These gifts are as natural as
taking a breath of clean fresh air. To some in the physical, psychic
gifts come easier than to others just as the ability to play a
piano or do math comes easier to some. We all have gifts and everyone
is psychic. We all have the ability to work with the unseen world.
It is natural because we are Spirit.
To me, today, the reality of the Spiritual realms and of God is
not a matter of faith but is an absolute truth based on personal
experience. I have been blessed with experiences whose foundations
in the physical world allow me to testify with absolute assurance
that we are immortal and that God moves in each of our lives.
I have now been working as an intuitive for over 20 years and
have had the opportunity to do many thousands of readings. These
readings have provided me with the many personal proofs and confirmations
as to the reality of Spirit
Readings are by nature positive and constructive providing people
with the tools they need to meet the challenges they have undertaken.
When beginning a reading it is not necessary to ask the client
why they have come, Spirit knows the issues and addresses them
in a loving and gentle way. Even today, I stand in awe of this
wonderful gift and the power it has to heal when shared through
A year or so ago, a man came to me for a reading. This man was
clearly not one who visits a psychic on a regular basis. Still,
Spirit had brought him to me. When he walked into the room, I
became aware of his son who was in the Spirit world. His son was
sitting in a red sports car and looking very happy and comfortable.
The car was a shiny new convertible with bucket seats and white-walled
tires. When the man sat down, I told him that his son was there
and described the car he was sitting in. The son said that he
wanted his father to know that he was fine and that he was still
enjoying traveling around in the car. He also told his father
that he should stop worrying about him. He had made the transition
into Spirit comfortably and was enjoying his new life. His father
was by now in tears and told me that the car I described was the
car his son had been killed in two years earlier. He also told
me that he had not been able to stop worrying about his son because
he had died so young and tragically. He had not been able to let
go. After he and his son shared some more of their thoughts, his
son retreated back into the Heaven world.
see a great weight being lifted off the man's shoulders as he
spoke to his son. That day, that man left knowing that we are
eternal and that his son was alive and well in the Spirit realm.
He also knew that they would be reunited when he made his transition.
like to share with everyone the wonderful feeling of standing
with a foot in both worlds. I am here to tell you that no one
is ever lost from the heart of God and that each of us in our
own way, in our own time, will know and understand our Spiritual
heritage. We are all Spiritual beings. We are all psychic and
connected to Spirit. To some, it comes easier and in greater measure
but it is a natural birthright for us all. Unfortunately, many
of us reject our natural connections to the Spirit realms as we
become immersed in the physical world and modern society.
like to share with you a few basic thoughts relating to a spiritual
do not have a soul, you are a soul. Even though you are housed
in a physical body, you are not a physical entity. You are eternal
and of Spirit.
have been given free will. We have been given the opportunity
to choose our path and to make mistakes and to grow. We live in
a universe of free choice. God does not make choices for us and
there is no devil to blame our actions on. We choose. We make
mistakes. We learn. We grow.
is important to note that thoughts are things. Thoughts, if given
enough energy, will become manifest. Another way of saying this
is , "As you think, so it is." Therefore, if you believe
the world is an unfriendly place, it will be. It is also true
that if you believe the world is full of joy, you will find joy
at every turn. (What do you choose?)
world of Spirit is a world of thought. Thoughts in the Spirit
realms are immediately manifested. If you wish to live in a great
mansion, you do. If you wish to travel to other planets and see
miraculous sights, you will.
the physical, thoughts also become things but it is a slower and
more tedious process. The chair you are sitting in was once a
thought form and now it has been translated into the physical.
The physical is made of much slower vibrations than that of Spirit
so it takes more energy and effort to manifest. Things in the
physical must be shaped and moulded, but be assured, the world
you live in is the product of your thoughts - both the negative
and the positive.
Spiritual path is a path of challenges. When you step onto the
Spiritual path, you are saying to God, "Challenge me!."
You have chosen the circumstances you were born into. They provided
you with the best potential to learn and experience the things
that you have chosen to experience in this life. It is only in
the physical that one can experience the things of the physical
such as pain, suffering, loss, grief, frustration, etc. It is
not what you go through in this life which moves you forward along
the path but what you choose to do with it.
happens for a reason. Life is purposeful. In some ways, you can
never make a mistake. Everything you do has consequences and those
consequences provide us with opportunities to learn. If you have
made a choice which has moved you into an unpleasant consequence,
then learning from it will hopefully mean that you will not make
the same choice again. If you have not learned from the experience,
you will have another opportunity. Every choice moves us forward
along our path.
are measured not by your deeds but by your thoughts. If you do
good things because you feelyou have to or will be punished if
you don't, then from the point of view of our Spiritual growth,
what is the value of doing those good things. Things must be done
because they are right, not because you are afraid. It is your
intent that infuses what you do. It is your intent which is measured
and evaluated when it comes time for you to look at your life
from the Spirit realm. So even though you may have a lifetime
of apparently good deeds, you may not reap the benefits of those
deeds, if they were done through greed, or fear, or the need for
power or control. It is your thoughts which matter.
that every thought is a prayer. It is not only when you call a
thought a prayer that God listens. God hears your thoughts whether
you are officially praying or not. As mentioned earlier, treat
every thought as if it will become a reality. That means that
when you have a negative thought, you must learn to transform
it into a positive. Today is not a difficult day - "Today
is a wonderful day to be alive. Thank you for the challenges which
have provided me with the opportunity to grow." Affirmations
are important because they work. "Every thought is a thing".
