Conscious Creation

Conscious Creation: Personal and Group Consciousness

I just returned from a week in Colorado. With my husband, I visited family in Boulder, CO, then took day trips to Estes Park and Ft. Collins. It was a lovely week away from home.

This morning, I am thinking about the balance we need as we chat with people who understand psychic/spiritual realities, and with those who prefer to reside solely in the physical realms of work and family.

I love the work I do. I love interviewing psychics, listening to channeled messages, and bringing this information forward for you to read. However, there are times when no one asks what I do, and I don't tell them. Many people are not interested in this work. They don't believe it is possible to channel messages from Spirit and/or deceased family members. I can see pretty quickly who might be interested in this work, and who might not. So, like everyone else who works with psychic material, I step lightly with those who I feel would not be interested in this subject. You might be surprised to know that I talk with a lot of psychics whose acquaintances have no idea what these people are capable of doing.

Let's take a little detour from talking about letting people know what we do, and let's explore the broader concepts of personal and group consciousness. 

We all live in our personal worlds and in the larger world. We have our personal consciousness and we also have a group consciousness. We strive for balance in our personal lives, but we also know that we can help create a better universe.

As I understand things, we each co-create our personal reality. Our thoughts are energy vibrations which go out to the Universe. The Universe matches our thought vibrations to help us co-create our worlds. So, for example, I love peace and quiet in my own home. It gives me time to think and to write. I focus on appreciating my time alone and the Universe matches my thoughts, and cooperates with me to create quiet time for my meditation and work.

Someone who craves excitement may use their thoughts to express gratitude to the Universe for an exciting life. The Universe will match that thought vibration of gratitude and bring them additional excitement.

If you are seeking something particular in life, remember to express gratitude whenever a snippet of what you want shows up. Your gratitude will indicate to the Universe that you want more of that specific item or experience.

Also remember that once we and the Universe have set the stage for our personal lives, what we do matters. We still need to use our hands and our actions to create our lives.

So, we create our personal worlds.

But what about the larger world? The world of wars, political battles, and environmental problems? People tell me that there is a group consciousness which creates and influences the larger world. If enough people think that world is a difficult place to live in, they will focus on the evidence which supports their position, and the Universe will match their focus and co-create the world as an even more difficult place to live.

If the majority of people are unhappy with the way the world is going and become pessimistic, their negative emotions and sorrowful reactions will be matched by more of what they don't want. If the cultural belief is, "There's no way to save the environment," that thought vibration will be matched by the Universe. It will become true and there will be no way to save the environment. We all must be mindful of our thoughts regarding our personal worlds and the larger world which we share.

On the other hand, if we focus on the good things in our life and in the world, and express appreciation for lovely flowers, beautiful sunsets, snow-capped mountains, and peace wherever we see it, our positive thought vibrations will be matched by the Universe and we will see more flowers, sunsets, mountains, and peace. And, in areas where we see room for improvement, we can send healing light (aiding the group consciousness) and we can take action to make things better.

As lightworkers, we can bring in the light and express appreciation for the loveliness of the world in order to counteract some of the group negativity, and to create group-consciousness optimism. When we meditate and focus on our love for a beautiful green Earth full of vibrant plants and animals, the Universe can match those thoughts and continue to provide vibrant plants and animals. With our thought vibrations, we are co-creating both our personal reality and the larger world. No one else needs to know what we are doing for the public, in our private lives.

Let me know what you think about these ideas.

Reading with a Medium

Quote from a Medium

Your mother wants everyone to know she is okay. Did your mom have a sense of humor?


What I am hearing is, "I survived my death." That tells me she has a bit of a sense of humor.

Your mother wants you to understand that at the time of her passing, it was very peaceful. She says to know it didn't hurt. There was no pain. It was as quick as a blink of the eye. That's how fast she left here. What her body did for a minute or two after is not relevant to her version of her passing. Sometimes they gasp. Sometimes there is a sigh or a gurgling sound. Your mother had already moved on.

Companion Animals

Companion Animals

I have had some wonderful dogs, cats, and hamsters in my life. I know how comforting they can be. I know how protective they can be (yes, one saved my life). I know how much love is exchanged between people and their pets.

Through the years, I've asked Animal Communicators about my pets and I've heard tremendous messages.

Last month, I asked someone who channels messages from Spirit about the role animals play in our lives.

This is what I heard:

"Animals come in to learn, to experience, for themselves. They are at a higher consciousness than most individuals. They come in as companionship, to help sooth people, they come in for enjoyment. We are talking companion animals here, not the wild ones. They come in to nurture. They come in to bring peace, comfort, love. Any emotion you can think of.

"In their willingness to give, they will take on the energies of individuals. They will take on disease. When you look at the gifts that they give to humanity, to the individual, it is a guidepost for how humanity should be towards one another. Non-judgmental love. A willingness to serve without reservation. You will see an animal give its life for its owner, either defending the owner, or taking on an energy or a disease.

"We find peace in their hearts, and love. But we also find that some can be corrupted by their human counterpart. That is where we get into the aggressions and the confusion.

"There are younger souls in animals, just like there are in people, humanity, and there are older souls in animals, as there are in people. They incarnate because they enjoy it. They look forward to it just as you did before incarnation. They find it fulfilling. They are in touch with Source every moment. That is the one big difference between animals and humanity.

"The wildlife are here to experience what they are, and they are totally, totally in touch with Source, experiencing being a bird, being a hawk, being a mouse, being a lion, being a bear, being an elephant. They are into that frequency of what they are.

"Do they have souls? Absolutely. Absolutely.

"They are learning and they do not fear death. They do not contemplate death while incarnated. It doesn't mean anything to them. There is no fear. They are truly gifted to humanity and bring great pleasure, great joy, great love.

"When you come across a new animal, observe them. How do they greet you? Generally, they will look at you up one side and down the other, then look at your body. They will investigate your aura first to find out who you are. Your frequency. And to find out where you are at.

"The other thing that you will find is that they will change their personality to be in sync with the human companion that they are with. They will take on actions that are very similar. You will hear the saying that they dog will begin to look like the owner, or the owner will begin to look like the dog. That energy transfer and association is real; in the cellular development of both the body of the human and the body of the beloved pet, there is a merging and there is an energy transfer between the souls."

I commented, "I have had some wonderful pets in my life. I've really appreciated them."

Channeler: Yes, and many have been with you several lives.

I hope you enjoyed the message as much as I did. Let me know what you think.

(P.S. My dog is by my side right now, asking for a treat.)

The Time of the Moment

Quote from a Channeled Message - The Time of the Moment

As you come down into your reincarnations, you can become a molecule, you can become an atom, you can become a sentient body. The rocks and the earth and the trees, all of those things have a consciousness as clear and present as yours is right now. They are content with their non-mobility. Or they are content to be a leaf that has one season, or they are content to be a tree, standing in a forest going through cycles of seasons over and over and over for hundreds and, perhaps, thousands of years. In that consciousness, there is a wisdom that arrives because of their sentient lifestyle and because they live a very, very, slow, slow, slow, slow, life.

You wonder, "Why would they choose to be a rock that lasts millions of years? Or a tree which lasts thousands of years?" There is no time in the perception that you see time. There is a continuity in the acceptance of a moment. When you accept a moment in all of its wholeness, you are living in that moment, and that moment continues, we're not going to say "moment, by moment, by moment," because then you would get a concept of linear time. We are trying to break that concept of linear time so that that moment is eternal. The changes that are experienced, are experienced in that moment, not in a linear time frame.

In that moment, there is no "thousand years," or "million years," there is just that moment. There is no waiting. There is no, "I am cold in the winter; I am hot in the summer." There is just that moment and, in that moment, all things, for that tree, or for that rock, or for that mountain that starts out as a solid, granite edifice of rock, and ends up sand at the bottom of the sea, is all in that moment. There is no perception of time as you envision it, as you live it, and feel it. That rock and that tree and that soil have manifested with a different perception of time. It is the time of the moment. It is not linear time, it is the time of the moment.

A consciousness, such as yourself, becomes the mountain, becomes the tree, or becomes the rock, and is content. It does not sit there and say, "Oh I cannot wait until I am sand so I can be eaten by a baby and grow up and join that consciousness so I can walk around." No, no, no, that is not it at all. The information one receives if one chooses to put their consciousness in the configuration of a rock, or a mountain, or a tree, or soil, is different. You can take that different kind of configuration and move those different kinds of configurations to different planets all over your galaxy and all over your universe. You can manifest as a sun, you can manifest as what your scientists are calling dark matter. You can manifest as energy, you can manifest as light, you can manifest as this chair, you can manifest as anything.

Listener: It's not a moment, it's a "flowment."

Another participant: Time is flowing, not linear. It moves around, carrying you, not drafting you. The moment perceived, and moment perceived, and moment perceived. An easy reference? Ever see a flip film? A frame, a frame, a frame. That is your life. Run them all together and it looks linear, but when you think about it, it is a moment and a moment. We are a flip book. Each picture is on a separate sheet, by itself. Each moment stands alone.

Over the past few months, this blog has progressed from information about how psychic ability works to ideas regarding larger life principles. I didn't do this consciously. It just happened as I heard a different kind of information and shared these new ideas with you.

After interviewing 36 psychics about their lives and abilities, I wrote about what they told me. Last year, I stopped interviewing psychics so I could catch up with publishing their interviews. I thought you would want to read them as e-books.

When I stopped interviewing psychics, I began being invited to sessions where psychics channeled messages from Spirit Guides. Of course, I recorded and transcribed these messages, just as I had recorded and transcribed the interviews. My Psychic Search evolved from a discussion of how psychic ability works to an exploration of the larger questions of how life works. This was a wonderful, surprise, Project development.

I am very curious about all of this, and I ask a lot of questions. Today, I want to share what I have heard so you can ask and answer your own questions. This advice comes from the many people with whom I have spoken.

If you have a question about what to do in a certain situation, or why things are the way they are:

1) Ask yourself first. Meditate and see if you receive advice. Trust your gut. Think about the different ways things could play out, and see which ones makes you feel good, or feel bad.

2) Ask your Spirit Guides for advice, then ask for confirmation. You can put a question out there and if you don't naturally hear or see an answer, look around for clues. Listen to song lyrics on the radio, or read street signs and license plates, etc., to see if your Guides are hinting to you in creative ways.

3) Ask a psychic for advice on personal issues and challenges. Maybe they can see or hear things which you are not picking up.

4) For the big questions, ask a channeler. I know several people who channel messages from Spirit Guides. If you have a question about how life works, or how the universe operates, ask your question through me. I have access to people who are willing to look at the big issues. E-mail your question to me, but keep in mind that I don't see these channelers very often, so it might take a while to receive an answer.

Over the past few months, I've asked about how prayer works. The result was the April 30 blog post about prayer and energy. Last month, I asked about oneness and connection. The answers I heard were on the May 7 blog post. Since then, I've asked about evil and about animals, and have heard some stunning channeled messages. Eventually, this information will make it onto the blog.

Past Life Carryover

 Quotes from Psychics

Several psychics mentioned that our gifts in this lifetime are often a continuation of our experiences from previous lifetimes. Here are a few quotes:

Melody Krafft

"I see an evolutionary pattern. I have had many past religious lives. I think it is easy for me to meditate because I have had many lives where I was required to meditate. I suspect that a lot of Mediums and people who fall easily into that meditative state have probably had past lives as monks or nuns or priests where they were very disciplined in sitting and getting still. It's a soul memory. When you come into this life, it's still there. I remember as a child that I would slide into meditative states all the time and get information. We continue.

"We learn everything that we want to learn in this lifetime, then we shed the body. We go to the other side, rest, and decide what we want to learn the next time around. When is the best time to come back? Who are the best parents to help facilitate this? Who are our friends going to be? That kind of thing. It's a continuation. This lifetime is one chapter in a huge book."

Later she told me: "The whole purpose of mediumship is healing. It is not a form of entertainment. When people realize that we don't die, it takes fear out of their life. When you remove fear from a person, it opens them up to new experiences. They realize that they are not limited."

Patricia Kirkman

"I've had a couple of past-life regressions and I have an affinity for crosses and things like that. I have been told that I have been in a temple and that I have been one of the priestesses and I've been told that I was a nun. Things always seem to go back to the same spacing over different lifetimes. Different regressions with different people have come back to the same mode. Not identical results. I had problems with my shoulder for several years and in a past-life regression I was told that I was stabbed in the shoulder when I was in a monastery and that it came from that point in time. I found out that my last name "Kirkman" means "Man of the Church." It's Scottish. There are a lot of things that keep pointing back to other points in time."

"How do you know certain things? When I went to Virginia for the first time, my husband and I were driving through an area and I told him I wanted to see the church down the street. When we turned the corner, there was a little white church. He just looked at me. You feel things. You know, but you don't know why.

"In past lives I was the martyr, or the helper, all aspects of it. It all seems to go back to the same element, something to do with a temple."

Delphina Nova

"I have an awareness that I have always done this [healing work]. In this incarnation, I came to help. I have the belief that I have never died. I don't look at past lifetimes as past lifetimes; there is a continuum. The "I" in me has never died. For me, there is no sense of time. Of course there have been historical changes on the planet and evolutionary changes. However, I feel that if I have done healing work in the past, I still have that ability. That hasn't changed."

Have you had the same kind of experience?

The Forefront of Oneness

The Forefront of Oneness

Are we all connected to each other and to the universe, or are we separate entities? Over the years, psychic after psychic has told me that we are all connected to each other, to every piece of the natural world, to our friends who have crossed to the other side, and to the Universal Source of Energy. This energetic connection is what enables them to do psychic readings. I can see how we are connected to our loved ones and pets, and I often feel a connection to Universal Energy. Are we connected to everything else?

A few blogs back (March 19), I wrote about "The Veil of Forgetfulness." On Earth, we forget how life is set up. We don't remember our situation because we accept a Veil of Forgetfulness prior to birth. We agree to the Veil so that we are unencumbered and can have free will.

One of the things we forget is that we are all connected to the same energetic Source. We see ourselves as individuals, distant from each other, and separate from the energy of the universe. The apparent separation allows us to express our independence, make choices, and work on our soul's evolution.

Last week, I asked John Hunter about the idea of "oneness," and he gave me a few things to think about. The "oneness" is both the Universal Source of Energy and our connection with this Source.

John mentioned that some people are aware of the oneness, and some are not.

Many who are aware of their connection to the energy of the universe would like to re-join that oneness as quickly as possible. They believe that the measure of their success as a soul, is their ability to return to the All Creative Energy. Other people believe we are here to grit our teeth and scrape through life so we can reap our reward in Heaven. In my opinion, both of these groups are missing the boat. They aren't seeing all the ways they can use their present lifetime to advance their soul's growth and to make the world a better place.

Once we realize what we are capable of doing, we can have a different kind of goal. We can adopt a creative goal. We might as well take advantage of our connection, our ability to create, and our time on this planet.

Many psychics and channelers have mentioned that we are "creator-beings." We create, and we can do it with compassion or with self-interest. Our choice.

John believes that our goal is to express the love of this Creative Energy in everything we manifest. We are like fingers of the Oneness which are operating an outreach program. We can reach out and shape reality. We are explorers of the empty space that the All Creative Energy hasn't quite reached. We are like atoms of that energy, at the tip of the Oneness energy mass. Our job is to explore new areas, then create. We are the Forefront of the Oneness. There is a big wave, or a cloud, of Creative Love Energy, and we are at the forward edge, creating.

We chose to be here, doing what we are doing, for our personal advancement and to spread Creative Love Energy. We represent the Oneness by standing at the edge of creation and saying, "I choose to manifest my future steps, my future progress, with love." We are the physical beings whose channel Creative Love Energy to produce change. We are part of an All Creative Force which shapes everything in all universes.

According to John, our life force comes from this All Creative Energy. We are in a shell of physical matter (or so it seems), but there is no separation from the All Love Creative Energy. It is who we are at our core. We are not supposed to hate our enemies because at their core, they have the same Love Creative Energy. That is why they can exist. No one is created out of negative energy. All creation blossoms out of love energy. Our enemies have just made different choices. That is the beauty of us thinking we are separate from the All Creative Source - we get to make choices.

Each of us decides how we want to step forward. If we choose positive creation, the love energy backs us up. When we step forward again and again with love, a huge wave of positive energy fills our footsteps.

If we choose negative expression, other things happen. If we lay down a negative energetic train track, the train still comes down the track, but it is not full of this positive energy. It is limited. This may be a necessary part of life, but it's not an enlightened part of life.

John added, "The positive, or the good side, or the right side, or love, is always going to win because love exists at the core of everything in existence."

So yes, through the energy of the Oneness, we are all connected to each other.

Remember the song, "We are the world, we are the children"? Well, we are the world and we are connected through the energy of the universe with all the children. Does it matter if we understand the set up? No, it doesn't matter as long as we keep moving forward with positive steps. The Universe will do what it does and take care of things behind the scenes.

Let's make the most of this opportunity. Let's move forward. Try new things. Create with compassion and allow the universe to fill our footsteps with love.

Very deep, I know. Let me know what you think.

Lately, I've been thinking about whether or not we are all connected. The psychics say, "Yes, we are all of one energy." I don't often feel that connection. Do you?

Here are two thoughts on connection which recently showed up in my life.

Conversation with a Psychic

John: There was constant help for me from a kid until now. The universe never let me feel alone. But I might feel afraid, so I might try to block and control.

Gail: You've always been connected.

John: I've always had to try to stop it. I told myself, "I'm alone. I'm alone. I'm alone." No one else understands, "I'm alone." They [Spirit Guides and teachers] couldn't walk with me in that space because I was trying to block it, but they were right outside my door. "When you open it, we are going to let you know a lot." I realize that now.

Gail: I've always been alone. I'm my own person. Even in my family, I've got my own stuff going on.

John: You're alone with million angels around you to support you. That is what it is like. We can say, "Oh, I'm alone," or "I'm on my own path," but we have the whole universe's energy there to help us.

Thank you for your insights John Hunter.

Website Post

Then Gary Wimmer posted this three days ago:

"The concept of separateness affects everything we do or say to some degree. Indeed, we are all unique individuals, but somewhere within each of us is the knowledge that we share more in common than we often realize. And the more we live by our common bonds, the more we realize that "separateness" is indeed a concept, not a fact. Yes, here in Space and Time we get to see ourselves as separate as we learn to deal with life's curve balls and surprises: the good, the bad and the ugly. But to increase our awareness of our connectedness is to better understand life and the creative process. Separateness, real or imagined? Or both? Just a thought . . . "

I took the hint that there was more I needed to know. Sunday, at the Psychic Fair, I turned my voice recorder on, pointed it at John, and said, "Tell me about Oneness." His fascinating answer will be posted to the blog once it has been transcribed. So much to learn!

Prayer and G-d

Praying for Ourselves and our Friends

Prayer. What is it? How does it work? Does it work?

This is a complicated topic. I am sharing a few things which I recently heard. I asked several psychics about what happens when we pray for ourselves and our friends. Who are we praying to? Is there a personal G-d who answers prayers?

Traditionally, we ask G-d for what we want and He either says "yes" and grants our wish, or He says "no." Today, we are considering a different perspective on prayer and G-d. This suggestion is based on the idea that we live in an interactive, energetic universe.

Praying for our self

According to the psychics, when we pray for something for our self, we are asking for the energy to align our self with what we want. One theory is that we are praying to our Higher Self to bring us into alignment with our goal. Our Higher Self knows what we are here to do and experience, and can determine if what we are asking for is in our highest and best interest. Prayers help align our consciousness with whatever we are attempting to manifest. We bring energy into balance to manifest the desire.

I asked if there was a G-d who answers personal prayers. There were two parts to this answer:

1) In general, there is a Universal Source of Energy and Intelligence which supports (and permeates) everything. This is not a personal G-d which is involved in daily lives. That task is delegated to our Higher Self (an aspect of our self which is connected to Source).

2) On the other hand, people are creators. Over the centuries, enough people in enough religions have prayed to a singular, personal G-d that those prayers have created such an entity. If people believe in a personal G-d, and give that G-d the opportunity to answer their prayers, that system can exist. It exists because people believe it exists.

In times of trouble, in times of fear, and in times of joyous jubilation, prayer energy has been gifted into the thought form of G-d. Millions of people believe that there is a G-d who answers prayers. As that energy is sent out, it brings the entity named "G-d" into existence. It maintains, or holds, the energy that people have given it. Different people's diverse views on what G-d is, make G-d a very expansive being.

When people send out energy in prayer, when people send out the energy of the spoken word, when they send out the energy in millions of religious services around the world, that energy builds up and creates a personal G-d. I think of this personal G-d, as a subset of the more-universal "Source."

Those who pray to G-d often receive what they ask for. They receive it from that which they pray to, for it's all energy by any name, in an interactive universe.

When someone sees G-d as a personal G-d, that truth vibrates back to them from the etheric level, and their prayers can be answered.

When someone see G-d as a Source, as a Creative Energy, and aligns their energy with Source, their prayers can also be answered.

However, whether people are dealing with their Higher Self or their concept of G-d, they will only manifest the wishes which are in alignment with their highest and best interest.

Praying for other people

What happens when we pray for someone else? For example, we often pray for someone else's health and healing.

When we pray, we send energy to another person. The energy can give them the boost they need to re-align themself with their greatest good. They may have been ready to give up, but the extra energy from outside sources can give them the strength to decide to heal.

However, this energetic charge only works if the person is willing to accept the energy of other people's prayers. "Accepting" means that their total being accepts the energy. It's not just a mind/brain decision. Everyone has individual choice and can decide whether or not to accept the healing energy. Then, their choice to heal must be in alignment with their life plan.

Similarly, we can pray for someone else to find a job, or to find love. If they accept the energy, our prayers can give them an energetic boost, but the person always has a choice about the job or the relationship.

Can entities on the other side help us?

Just like prayer works on the physical level, it also works from the other side. A deceased relative, an angel, or a Spirit Guide can help someone on the physical plane. Their prayer energy can add to the person's energy, and help the person manifest their goal more easily (if the person is willing to accept the energy).

This is a very complex subject. I've summarized it as best I can. Think about a particular situation in your life and see how these ideas might apply. Then, let me know if this makes sense to you.


P.S. The Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be held this Sunday, May 3, 2015, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, Arizona. I'll be there with books and chakra-balancing jewelry. I hope to see you there.

In the Blink of an Eye

I interviewed Delphina Nova in 2010 and she shared her thoughts on the upcoming tumultuous years. After the Nepali earthquake, I thought I would share what she said at the time.

Quote from a Psychic - In the Blink of an Eye

"I believe we are on the brink, we are at the 11th hour on our planet. Indigenous cultures around the world, as well as western scientists, are telling us that we are at the 11th hour and I think we are being brought to this place where we actually want something to happen. Our actions are creating things. We are going to be given a huge gift. I am not focused on the December 21, 2012 Mayan prophecies because not all indigenous prophecies point to 2012.

"We are at this point where we have a choice about how we are going to conduct our lives, how we are going to treat each other, and how we are going to take care of the environment. I believe that in the blink of an eye we will choose love. It is up to us. How we treat ourselves and the world around us, is what we are going to receive. The person in one house may be living in hell, and the person next door may be living in love. I believe we can live in a pile of dung somewhere and still live in complete bliss. You can see the person in front of you as your enemy, as separate from you, or as your friend.

"Many Earth changes are happening right now. It's like birth. The baby doesn't come out in one push. This is like a birth process. We make progress, then we go back, then we make progress again . . . and it hurts! Finally, the waters break and the baby is born. Now, ask yourself which waters are breaking right now around the planet? We just had an earthquake in Haiti and an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. A lot of things are happening which are like birth pangs. We ask, "Why are these things happening? Why does G-d allow this?" It's all part of the birthing process and birth is messy. Even the waters in the Gulf have turned red like blood! Oil is the blood of Mother Earth. We have to trust in the birth process. Part of that process is letting go of the things we no longer need. We don't need the amniotic sac after the baby is born."

Later in our interview, Delphina added: 

"I can't control what is going to happen in the future, all I can do is take care of my own inner environment. If I am in a space of love, no matter what is happening around me, I am not going to be affected. If there is chaos, or a nuclear attack on Tucson, it won't affect me if I am in the right spiritual space. Am I going to wait until that happens, or am I going to be here in a place of love; nourishing my relationships with G-d and my family? Whatever happens, happens. On my way out, I want to make sure I am in the place of being vulnerable which allows G-d in.

"Scriptures also talk about a golden age. Things are going to be shaken up. This shaking needs to happen, so that we can go into a time of peace which will last a long time. We are going through this shaky period as Earth births itself because we are part of Earth, part of Mother Earth. We, too, need to go through the changes and release the things which no longer work in our own lives: relationships, music, food, etc. We are in the end times right now. I don't look at 2012 as a date; we are already in the end times. This is it for me. I have felt this for 20 years. We are in it right now. Timing can be totally off. Anything can happen at any time right now . . . in the blink of an eye."

A while later, she added:

"I am not waiting for 2012. There is no such thing as time, there is just human time. I am encouraging people not just to look at the date of December 21, 2012, but to think about what they are doing right now. That date is like a portal, but everything is coming down right now and the rate of change will increase until we go through that doorway. When we go through the doorway, we are going to drop all that no longer serves us on the planet. As that happens, the more we cling on to our stocks, our relationships, our cities . . .  we don't know how things are going to be. We just have to let go and know that the changes which are happening are happening for the highest and utter love. I really feel that something wonderful is coming, but we need to let go of things. Sometimes when you need to let go of something, you want to hold on that much more tightly."

A Resource for Authors

Writing it Right

1) What is the difference between a ghost and a spirit?

2) What are the two major ways in which psychics do readings?

3) Do we retain our personalities after we die and cross to the other side?

4) What are psychics capable of doing?

5) Can your deceased aunt be your Guardian Angel?

I have completed a lot of research with real people with psychic abilities. This work is not fiction (although it often reads like sci-fi fantasy).

Information on this website, in the book, and in the "Psychics Speak" interviews, can be a huge resource for authors who need to know what psychics actually do, how they think, and how they talk about the universe.

One goal of this work is to lay a framework for psychic ability; to get an idea of the realities and the possibilities. Another goal is to define terminology so we understand what people are talking about. Many terms are defined on the "Glossary" page of this website.

If you are an author with a specific question about what psychics do, or how they believe the universe works, feel free to ask me. I'll see if anyone has an answer for you.

Now, to answer the questions:

1) A "ghost" is the energy of a deceased person who has not yet crossed to other side. A "spirit" is the soul of a person who has crossed into the Light. (Because nothing is ever that straightforward, I will mention that some people believe that ghosts are more like energy imprints.)

2) There are two major ways in which psychics provide readings:

a) They connect directly into the client's energy, often by holding hands or by doing body work. All questions can be answered by accessing the client's energy.

b) They work with their Spirit Guides and angels to communicate with the client's Spirit Guides and angels. There is no direct energy-to-energy connection. This method protects the psychic from anything harmful in the client's energy field.

3) Yes, we retain our personalities on the other side. We have an expanded view of issues, see how all of our lifetimes have worked together, and realize how we have affected other people. However, we are not enlightened beings until we have completed all of our physical lifetimes.

4) Most psychics have an area of expertise. For example, they may be a Medium or an Animal Communicator. However, in an emergency, they can often do things they had not known they were capable of doing. They may need to provide an emergency healing, or have a prophetic moment. Some things happen on a "need to know" basis.

5) Every person is born with a Guardian Angel who is with them before birth, through life, through death, and into the afterlife. If a friend or relative dies, that soul may join the person's Spirit Guide group. The deceased will not be a Guardian Angel (that slot is already full), but will still be able to provide support and guidance. Most Spirit Guides have lived in the physical world. Most angels have not had physical lives (although they can show up in physical form in an emergency).

Other questions?

Have a lovely day.

Quote - Time is flying by

Quote from a Channeled Message

"It seems that time is flying by. It seems to go so fast. You all have some understanding that time is an illusion. And yet, you live in a world where things are marked by time. Know that because of the energies coming into the world, time will seem to speed up. Of course, time seems much faster for those who have been on the earth plane for a while, than for the children who have just come in. For them, a year seems like a long time, but you know that the years fly by.

"My message is simple: Enjoy the time you have and know that because of the energy which is coming in, and each of you are drawing in, that each of you are becoming more and more aware that time seems to go very fast. However, this is a blessing for you as your desires will come to you faster and faster and faster. The more you release your doubts and worries, the faster things will come. The more you have fun, and the more you play, and the more you enjoy your life, the harder it is for you to keep your doubts and worries. So live and love and enjoy the time that you have."

Heavenly Music

Heavenly Music

An Intuitive woman told me about her near near-death experience (NDE). This is her paraphrased story:

"It was the middle of the night and I felt like I was having a heart attack. It scared me. I couldn't even move. My back hurt. I thought I'd better get up and get some water; do something. I got out of bed, walked around, sipped some water, then went back to bed. As soon as I started to fall asleep, I heard this beautiful music playing, music like I had never heard before. I wondered, "What could it be? An ice cream truck?" It was the middle of the night. I didn't think I'd left the radio or the CD player on. I got out of bed again. I checked the doors, opening them to see if anyone was playing music. Nothing was there.

"I went back to bed and the harmonious music started playing again. Finally, I fell asleep.

"Sunday morning, I was still feeling odd from the day before. I went to church, then headed for the grocery store.

"On the way, I called a friend and asked how he was doing. He was sitting at his computer, reading that our mutual friend had just passed away. She had been found dead at 10 p.m. on the night I had heard the music. She was a really good friend of mine and she had suffered a heart attack.

"I had never heard that music before. It was almost like a peaceful type of beautiful music. You just want to relax. I had no idea."

* * *

Years ago, I talked to Delphina Nova about the role which music played in her life. She told me:

"From the age of five until I was a teenager, I played music 4 or 5 hours a day. I played the accordion. I was in festivals and competitions. This was a huge part of my life. Back then, it was my direct link to the Divine. At this time in my life, I am just realizing that there was a huge connection. As a child, playing classical music for 4 or 5 hours a day was a meditative practice. I wasn't meditating, or praying, but the music linked me to the music of the spirits. Music was my first love. Through music, I was connected to planets and stars, to souls. I knew I wasn't just a body when I was playing music. This is just starting to reveal itself. Music is going on constantly in the Universe. Music was a way for me to soothe my soul during dark times.

"Now, I play the Native American flute. I play it for myself, for my own connection. Occasionally, I play the flute at ceremonies, such as births, transitions, and name-givings. Music is a huge part of my life."

                                         * * *
I, too, have heard mystical, classical music when none was there.

Have you heard celestial harmonies, turned, and discovered that there was no obvious source for the music? If so, I would love to hear your story. You can contact me at

A Personal Way to Communicate

Conversing with Psychics

A few months ago, I asked an Intuitive how she received messages, and if we could all receive messages. She told me:

"There are people, entities, on all levels willing to talk to you. Some people on the other side are experts in their field. All sorts of information is over there. Spirit Guides are closer to our energy than angels. Sometimes people can accept angels because they are part of traditional religion. Other people think that angels are too far from anything they know, yet there is this range of beings who you can tap into.

"If you allow it, you can get information. How it will happen for you, will be different than how it happens for anyone else.

"When you trust that how you get it is real, it will come in faster and better.

"If you talk to someone who pushes Guides and Teachers, and says that is the only way to communicate, you are never going to see how you do it because you are always going to go to Guides and Teachers. They are there and they will talk to you, but you have to discover your personal way of receiving information.

"I'm an Intuitive. I feel. I'm clairscentient. I hear, but not with a voice. I say 'I hear it' because it is almost like an echo, like someone shouted into the room, then I can hear it. It's not coming into my ear. Sometimes, they write a banner. I'm visual. If they know my ears aren't going to get it, they write a banner. That's if I'm conscious of the communication.

"The unconscious part comes when Spirit just takes over and says words. Messages bypass my conscious brain and come out of my mouth. I will be talking to you and I will hit the exact words you need to hear. My mouth will say the words, but if you ask me to repeat them, I won't be able to do it. I can't get it back because I didn't originate it.

"Now, I understand that is how I communicate. I'm comfortable with it.

"Everyone can discover their own way of communicating with Spirit."

Harmony Grove's Rebirth and Renewal

Rebirth and Renewal

Harmony Grove's story is everyone's story. Out of destruction comes renewal.

Harmony Grove is a spiritualist community west of Escondido, California. I visited Harmony Grove several years ago and found a lovely, calm spot. In May 2014, wildfires swept through, and destroyed, much of Harmony Grove. The church burned down, along with homes and the bookstore. I wrote a blog post about the fire in May 2014.

In February 2015, nine months after the fire, I visited Harmony Grove again. I wanted to see what remained on the site. It was serendipitous that I arrived, unannounced, on a day that the gate was open for trash pickup. Turns out, Harmony Grove has been closed to the public most of the time since the fire. However, they still have Psychic Fairs and classes so it is open for those events. I just happened to show up on a day when the gates were open, the woman I had talked with several years ago was in her car in the parking lot (just about to leave), and the current President was working onsite. I was allowed to enter the property and to relax in the Meditation Garden.

After sitting in the calm, I stopped in to see one of the women who was onsite working to rebuild Harmony Grove. Her name is Reverend Coy Johnston and she is the current President of the Harmony Grove Spiritualist Association. We had never before met, yet she was gracious enough to chat with me and tell me about Harmony Grove's rebirth and renewal.

I asked about the fire and she told me that there had been an evacuation order the night before the blaze had swept through Harmony Grove. All of the people and pets had safely evacuated, so no one had been hurt. At the time, Coy had thought that the people were being asked to leave, like they had many times before, but she had been certain that the evacuees would return to their homes a few days later. She had not thought that the fire would burn Harmony Grove. That is not what happened. Many of the homes had been destroyed, all of the people had to move elsewhere, and the community had to ride out a period of debris removal. People had to grieve their losses, reconcile the fact that they had lost their homes and possessions, move on, come to an emotional place where they could accept what had happened, and begin to see that the fire had provided an opportunity for Harmony Grove's renewal.

So, what was my first logical, annoying, question to Coy? "As a bunch of psychics, didn't people know that Harmony Grove was going to burn?" Yes and no. Coy told me that several psychics had known that the area would burn. They had warned others, then left with their belongings. However, other people were in denial. They just couldn't believe that Spirit would allow the area to burn. There had been many wildfires, and Harmony Grove had always been spared.

Now, let's go back to a few months prior to the fire. Coy told me that new energies had been coming into Harmony Grove since 2011. The onsite spiritualists had felt these new energies. Vortexes had opened on the property.

In Coy's opinion, Spirit had seen the fires approaching Harmony Grove and had taken the opportunity to allow some of the old wooden buildings to burn so that new buildings could be built within the new energies. Enough of the property had been spared that activities could continue, but the old buildings could now be replaced by new buildings.

Similarly, all the people who had lived at Harmony Grove had to move out. This provided an opportunity for people to choose anew where they wanted to live. If they were dedicated to Harmony Grove, they were welcome to return and build new homes. If they were on the fence, not certain that they still wanted to live at Harmony Grove, they could make the choice to live elsewhere. When rebuilt, the Grove will be home to completely re-committed spiritualists, brand-new buildings, and the new energies which now inspire the property. This is an opportunity to renew everything, not just the homes, but the whole community's character.

Right now, many classes are being held at Harmony Grove. The monthly Psychic Fair is open to the public, Mediums and healers are being trained and certified, the Summer Institute is being planned, and ministers are being ordained. Much is happening. You can check out the Harmony Grove website for information on these activities. In addition, the website has photos of the fire damage, and information on how you can contribute to rebuilding the site.

The important message is that we all go through periods of despair and renewal. We can survive life's challenges and realize that they often lead to re-dedication and happiness. Life changes. Fires burn. We adapt, and we may flourish afterwards. The energies are changing for all of us. In these new energies, we are encouraged to make new choices, or to reaffirm the life choices we have already made. The new energies allow us to feel better, lighter, brighter, and clearer.

The Skull Speaks

For those of you who are waiting for a story which is a little bit "out there," here we go.

Many crystals were onsite when the fire roared through. In the most-intense areas of heat, crystals had disintegrated. One of the surviving pieces was a small crystal skull. After the fire, the skull was picked up by someone with which it could communicate; someone who was sensitive enough to "hear" the skull. The skull wanted to go everywhere with this woman. It had been freaked out by the fire. The skull raged on, telling stories about what it was like to live through an inferno. The skull's energy was jittery, like a child who had survived a trauma. Finally, after telling his story over and over, and showing this woman what it was like to live through a fire, the skull calmed down. The skull became the spokesman for all the things which had survived the fire. Then, the crystal skull became an energy point, anchoring new energy at Harmony Grove.

Thank you, Coy, for taking the time to chat with me and for your willingness to help me understand the bigger picture.
