All Equal

All Equal

When I interviewed Susy Plummer, the Visionary Artist, she remarked:

"I think that everything is equal. People are equal; angels and Guides are equal. We are in this big circle of equality." She clarified, "I think all entities are equal and that we all have different jobs to do. We are all in different positions in the whole thing. We are all equal in worthiness."

At the time, that idea struck me. Are people really as important as angels and Spirit Guides?

When I was younger, I accepted that people were spirits in physical bodies. Sometimes we made our own decisions and sometimes we relied on our unseen spiritual selves to make inspired decisions. I looked to my Spirit Guides for good ideas. I knew they existed, but I had trouble making contact with them so I talked to psychics to pick up guidance. I thought that Spirit Guides knew more than we did; they were wiser and more important than we were. People were kind of like sentient puppets, looking outside of ourselves for guidance.

Then, I came to realize how important we are in our individual bodies. While we are maneuvering through our soul's evolution, we are the ones who physically create on Earth. It doesn't do our Spirit Guides any good to have a great idea if they can't implement it in physical reality. They need us as much as we need them. We co-create. Ideas may come from our own minds, or from Spirit Guides and our Higher Selves, but we have the hands and tools which create in a physical universe.

In addition, I heard that we switch places. This lifetime, a Guide may be working with us, but next time, we may be guiding them through a physical lifetime.

As I was doing the interviews, many Intuitives told me that they saw, and worked with, angels. Angels. I hadn't ever thought about angels. I had no experience with them. I had heard that angels were messengers from G-d. They whispered in our ears. They only came into physical bodies when we were in mortal danger and needed saving. I couldn't hear them. I couldn't see them. Were they real? Many people told me that they easily communicated with angels and archangels.

Meanwhile, a psychic told me that a whole non-physical community supported my journey. Sometimes when I enjoyed an accomplishment, I thought I heard them cheering.

From the other side, our deceased relatives may provide support and guidance, but they are on their own journey of growth. Just because they have passed, doesn't make them any smarter than we are. They may have an expanded perspective and we can look to them for input, but they still have their personalities and may not be looking out for our best interests. They are no more important than we are.

What about other people? Everyone has a role. Some people create art, but they need people who buy art. Some people are philanthropists, but they need people who rely on their charitable donations. Two sides to every activity. All the situations and players are necessary to make this universe a place of learning.

If we rely only on our physical senses, our soul still makes progress. If we are introspective, we better understand our lives. If we learn from the experiences of other people (like psychics), we can see a broader perspective.

I think that Susy is right. Every entity has a role to play and all entities are of equal value. We don't create without inspired influences, yet the Guides and angels need us to physically build things on Earth. Angels are no more important than we are. We are no more important than angels. Spirit Guides can help us, and we can help them. With other people, we both learn and teach.

All equal.

What do you think?


P.S. I apologize for missing last Sunday's Psychic Fair. I have a family issue demanding much of my time and attention.

 Quote from a Psychic - Karma

"With Karma, people may get pissed off if they think someone is doing something to hurt them, but that second person may be balancing out what the first person did to them which the first person is not willing to acknowledge, or which occurred in a previous lifetime. Judgement is up to G-d. People need to get out of the habit of judging others. Or it could be that one person hurt a second person who hurt a third person and the third person is now hurting the first person. It all balances out, but it is not necessarily a one-to-one correlation. Spirit uses whatever it needs to balance Karma."

Can Psychics See the Future?

The next Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair is this Sunday, October 4, 2015, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the DoubleTree Inn in Tucson, AZ. In honor of the Fair, I'm posting the answer to one of the most-often asked questions:

Can psychics see the future?

Psychics often see the direction a client's energy is flowing. They see if the energy will take the client where they want to go. They also see bits and pieces of the client's future. Because information comes in paragraphs, phrases, images and symbols, these pieces have to be assembled correctly to produce a clear view of the future. The pieces are part of an assemblage, a collage, a mosaic, a painting. Psychics are artists. The pieces are real, but because they require assembly, it can be difficult to see the future precisely. In addition, pieces and impressions are just part of the story. What people actually do matters.

As I understand things, each person agrees to an outline for his or her life before being born. Once a person is here, the person doesn't remember what was agreed upon or which lessons he or she is here to learn. However, the blueprint still exists and psychics can often access the blueprint and help clients see the overview of their life. This blueprint helps the psychic understand the person's future. For example, they can see if a person is destined for marriage, children or travel.

While the outline provides the broad brush strokes for lives, people use free will to fill in the details. Most things are not predestined. People have choices. So the psychics can see the most-probable future, unless the person uses free will to change this future. This ability to change course is one of the positive things which can come from a psychic reading. If a psychic sees someone's future, and the person doesn't want that future, they can use free will to make the changes which bring a different future. For example, if a psychic sees illness on the horizon, the person can choose a healthier lifestyle to ward off disease. This change works unless the upcoming illness is part of the larger blueprint; part of the required life lesson.

In her book Gifts of the Soul (Llewellyn Worldwide, Woodbury, MN, 2008, p. 35), Constance Rodriguez, Ph.D., provided a metaphor for seeing a client's past, present and future. She explained that doing a reading can be like traveling by airplane, looking down, and seeing a vehicle on a one-lane road. She can see where the driver has been and where he is going. She can see bends in the road which represent difficulties in life and she can see upcoming intersections where he must choose which road to take. It is as if she can see the person's past, present and potential future at the same time. She can see the road with the most energy with respect to the person's future.

When it comes to world issues, psychics' most-complete predictions come in prophetic dreams and visions, or as clear communications from non-physical entities. These experiences have a unique energy which indicates that they are prophetic. However, time frames may not be clear. The psychics have to wait and see if the events come to pass. And again, if the psychics see a world future which they don't like, they can enlist people to try to change that future.

In addition to glimpses of the future, psychics also see other kinds of information. They see the emotions surrounding issues, the decisions with which people struggle, health issues, strengths, weaknesses, personality traits, life challenges, and relationships with parents and children. They might also see relatives who have crossed or provide inspirational messages about how wise and wonderful people are and how people can gracefully overcome challenges. Potential futures are just one aspect of psychic readings.


BTW, This blog post was an excerpt from the book "My Psychic Search: discovering what psychics do, what psychics know, and how they can help us improve our lives."

Dignity and Compassion for the Dying
Message from the Guides

Dignity and Compassion for the Dying

I asked, "Can you tell us more about going through the dying process? Something I could share on the blog, both for the person who is leaving and for the people who are staying here."

The Spirit Guides answered:

If the people who are staying here know that it is merely change and how wonderful it is, like when a child is no longer a child and goes into puberty, then they turn into senior citizens, etc.; if an individual who is still on the earth plane knows that, they exude, they relay, this peace and tranquility in making things comfortable. However, sometimes the generation that may be shifting is reacting to our reactions.

If it is a 7 or 8 year old, and you tell them how wonderful it is that they are shifting and transitioning and will feel no pain, that is what they will experience and look forward to.

If it is an older person who is afraid of judgement, of fear, of pain, of things they were taught death was, you cannot re-indoctrinate anyone. It is about accepting them where they are.

If they say, "I am scared," you can say, "I'm here to hold your hand." If they say, "I don't want to die," you can respond, "I understand." If they say, "Do whatever it takes," you can ask, "What would you like us to do? I will do my best." Let them decide.

The minute you tell them, "Just accept it," the minute you tell them, "Don't fight," or "Keep fighting," you have now imposed your will on them and that is the last thing they need when they are feeling powerless. Anything to help them feel empowered in their process, is respectful. If you offer nothing else at the moment of difficulty in any way in life, it is respect. The greatest complaint that people have with the medical field is that they do not feel respected. They feel treated "at" not "with." They feel that the caretakers are not caring. They say, "You need to get up." "You need to shower." We understand order, but the more a person has a choice . . . it is like a child, "You can eat your green beans first, or your potatoes first, but you are going to eat them."

Let them have choices. Let them decide.

Those who are watching and observing the passing process need to have peace within themselves, [knowing] this is normal. It is not traumatic.

Thank you.

Figuring Out Psychic Abilities

What is it like to be a psychic child?

When people with intuitive abilities are born, they are "just kids" and are completely accepting of whatever life has to offer. They don't realize that other kids can't see spirits, feel what other people feel or know what other people think. At some young age, they discover that they are different from other children and that if they don't hide it, the other children will make fun of them. Hiding their abilities makes them feel separate from other people. Society tells them that they are odd and there usually isn't an adult in their family who understands what is happening and can help the children see that they are not crazy. They have difficult childhoods and painful young-adulthoods. Eventually, someone helps them understand that they are not crazy, they are intuitive. Then . . . they blossom into their authentic selves.

Alternatively, a few psychics were born into this lifetime knowing exactly which gifts they had and what they were here to accomplish. They remembered their past lives and the contracts they had negotiated before agreeing to be born. These psychics had slightly easier childhoods than the psychics who had to figure out why they were different; however, they faced their own issues. For example, a few psychics remembered being part of World War II in Europe and had flashbacks whenever this period was discussed in school.

Interestingly, several people revealed that they were very smart and that their intelligence helped them navigate this world while exploring the non-physical world. This was particularly important when figuring out how to fit in, and how to cope, at school. To-Ree'-Nee' Wolf was reading at a college level when she was 7; Leah Taylor was considered a genius at 4; and Rhonda Harford Gibony' was born with a photographic memory.

Eventually, Intuitives figure out and accept that they are different from other people and that they have a gift which allows them to tap into energy and information which can help other people. They realize that one reason they are here on Earth is to help others. A second reason PRISMS are here is to learn their own life lessons. They believe that every soul is here to experience life, to grow and to evolve.

How did people figure out that they were psychic?

Of the 26 people I interviewed for the book, four were born knowing they were psychic, eighteen knew they were different from other children but had to figure out that they were psychic, and four were "normal" children who developed their gift later in life.

The four people who came to Earth knowing that they were psychic either remembered their past lives and how the Universe worked, or remembered making an agreement (before being born) to come to Earth and help people. They had experiences in childhood which reinforced their "knowing." One psychic told me that when her class learned about World War II in second grade, she remembered the whole thing and couldn't get out of bed for a week.

Eighteen psychics knew they were different from other children, but had to discover that they had psychic abilities. What made them different from other children? They saw fairies, astral traveled, talked with spirits, or knew things about other people which they had no logical way of knowing.

At eight years old, one psychic told his mom that a neighbor was pregnant before there were any indications that this was the case. Also at eight years old, another psychic started seeing people's auras. At five years of age, a third psychic had an out-of-body experience. When these children talked about their experiences, they found that other people didn't see the things which they saw. These eighteen children knew that there was something different about them, but it took a while to put the pieces together.

How did they figure things out? Of the eighteen people who knew they were different, but had to find out what was happening:

5 people talked to a spiritual teacher who explained their situation;
4 people explored metaphysics on their own and discovered that they had gifts;
1 person had Spirit Guides who explained what was going on;
5 people either had a near-death experience, a medical issue or an emotional trauma which opened their abilities; and
3 people had abilities which unfolded naturally as they matured.

Are you psychic? How did you figure it out?

Storytelling as a Tool for Creating your Future

Idea from a Channeled Message:

Storytelling is a Tool which can be used (or misused) for Growth

When you tell your story, your life story, what you want, how things are, how they are going, the complications, and the constant frustrations, you manifest them all over again. One of the most important things to realize if you want to change your life, is that you need to change your story. Always put a positive spin on it. Look at the positives. For as you see the positive aspects, no energy is put into things which are unwanted.

When you tell the story of complications, the story of how many bureaucrats you ran into and all the red tape, you manifest the story again. As you tell that story, you create energy. You may think it is subtle, but Source doesn't. Source sees this as a beacon of light. "I'm telling this story because this is what I want." Begin to think about how you say things. Think about the story and the spin of how you really want things to be.

Be clear in what you want, decidingly clear. Don't throw roadblocks in by telling the story of complications over and over and over. Those complications have a huge emotional charge and wave a big banner to Source. Sources sees nothing as good, nothing as bad. Source sees what you are saying and sees the emotion. The strength of feeling is very important. So when the story is filled with complications and frustrations, Source says, "This must be what you want so this is what you will get."

Many times people will tell a story looking for a response from others. Others can't help you. You create your experience. Tell the story as you want it to be. The more you practice this, the more proficient you become. It is a very strong creative tool.

What is your story?

Mercury Retrograde: The Good News

Putting a New Spin on Mercury Retrograde

"My computer doesn't work," "My e-mails are jumbled." "I can't sign a contract." I often hear people blame technical issues and personal miscommunications on Mercury Retrograde. Is there another way we can look at this period?

Mercury Retrograde periods occur three times each year. This year's third Mercury Retrograde begins today. It ends October 9.

A couple of months ago, I heard a fresh spin on Mercury Retrograde from John Hunter. I'm paraphrasing a bit, but this is the gist of what he said:

John Hunter

Our job is to go through life acknowledging different aspects of ourselves, pulling the positive out of events, and growing, learning, and expanding with that knowledge.

The retrograde period is for review. Energies which stop us from forward progress give us the opportunity to identify the negative patterns of the past which we have not dealt with efficiently. Once the Retrograde is over, we move on. We are better prepared for the next step of our growth. It's really a benefit.

Retrograde is like the review test.

All of the sudden, we are going to have to display what we know. We are going to have to review past patterns which held us back. If we didn't deal with them efficiently, we see that we still have to deal with them. We are stronger than we were back then. We can apply love to past situations and officially disconnect from them. We can extract the positive energy and use it in our next big step.

It's all about work and walking on our path. If we are not currently on our path, retrograde is a scary thing. It's like when the teacher says, "Surprise Review Test." If we are not prepared, it is troublesome. But if we have kept up with our studies, our homework, we are going to say, "This is great." This is what retrograde means. However, we don't want to review the parts we worked so hard to forget.

This time in the universe is not about confusion. It is an opportunity to make clear what is going on. In the past, we pushed our way through life. Now we "receive" our way through life. This is a paradigm shift; an energy shift.

As the Earth rotates in the universe, we go through waves of energy which represent different aspects of processing. When someone says, "You have to be a slave," or "You have to push your way through life," that, at our core, does not sound right any more. That is the old energy. We have moved out of that energy. We have to remember why we are here, who and what we are, and allow life to flow through us. It sounds natural. It sounds better. Before, we had to work really hard, never rest, keep pushing. That is how we were successful. Now we look around at the people who have done that and we see that they are worn out. Spiritually, they haven't grown much. Love was set aside. We can see families which took that concept 100% and don't even know each other, but they have some money.

That approach doesn't do any good when material things don't hold value. Material value goes up and down. When it goes down, what do we have? If we don't have the nicest car, or a lot of money, are we happy? Do we have loved ones? Are we able to communicate? Retrograde helps us see that. It could be a tough time, but it is a realistic time. It is a time to see exactly where we are.

I asked, "What does that have to do with electronics not working?"

John answered: Energy. Retrograde takes away things which make your life so easy that you don't have to deal with yourself. Whatever it takes for you to deal with your true reality is what is going to happen during retrograde. If you don't work through it this time, the next retrograde, it will happen again. The retrograde reflects your inability to deal with things when it would benefit you to actually address them. If the same thing has happened the last five retrogrades, evaluate it. When you identify patterns, you have choices. You can choose to tag patterns as negative or positive. It's the most important thing you can do in life. If you review your life and start tagging every event with a positive aspect, you are going to be enlightened. You are going to be free.

Retrograde is about choosing love in everything you have done, in everything you will do. It is an amazing ability we have as humans. That is my take on retrograde.


I like the idea that we can use any problems which occur during the Mercury Retrograde period to evaluate our lives and our challenges, and see if there are better ways to move forward. The current retrograde period overlaps with the Jewish High Holy Days which are also about introspection, self-evaluation, and plans for improving our lives.

I wish you all a wonderful "Mercury Retrograde." Let me know how it goes.

What do Angels look like?
Quote from a Psychic

I asked, "What do you see, when you see angels?"

Aitreyia answered, "Now, I see light. In the early 1990s, my store was downtown and my ex's hotel was downtown. I would walk home at midnight and not be afraid. I would see tall angels, short angels, gold angels, and blue angels.

"I don't need to see them that way anymore. Now I see their higher form as a beam of light or a ball of light. I don't see angels in physical form.

"At one point, I worked with a Native American man. I was trying to get him to work with [Archangel] Michael. He saw Michael as a blue wolf. I realized that angels were not limited to a particular religion and were not limited in how they appeared to people."

Celebrating Transitions

Spirit Speaks about Life

I heard this message last week through a person who channels ideas worth pondering:

"Birth is celebrated (everyone celebrates the child) and death is mourned. They are the same. They are the same. We need to welcome a birth like it is normal, like we welcome adolescence like it is normal, like we welcome adulthood like it is normal, like we welcome death because it is normal, like we welcome rebirth because it is normal. Once people get that, the emotional charges don't need to weigh them down.

"Not all children are received in joy. Not all deaths are in sorrow. It's important to know it is merely the change.

"Do you cry when the ice cube melts? Do you cry when it evaporates? Do you cry when it rains down? It just is. If you see life more like the liquid, sacred water that you eat, drink, and bathe in, it would take a lot of sting away. People would respect all levels in between. How cute when they are born, when they toddle, when they go off, when they write, when they graduate, when they marry, when they have children, when they retire, when they get older, when they die. All of it is to be celebrated. All of it. If it is done in love, and loved, it is a success on this side and the other."

Let me know if you find this kind of post useful: short, sweet, and insightful.

 Questions and Answers

I asked: How do we measure success in life? How do we know that we are making progress and going in the right direction?

Brilliant question. Success is when you have loved and been loved. People do not value that as success. If you are loved and love, you are a success.

People thought "success" was "when I can support my family and have money in the bank," "when I have my credentials," "when all my family has their credentials,""when I have opened institutions for my philanthropical contributions." My dear, all of that is human made. What is being a success cannot be measured and is not tangible. If you have love, and have been loved, you are a success. If only we could teach that to the youth.

Meet a Visionary Artist - Susy Plummer

Meet a Visionary Artist - Susy Plummer

Announcement: Tucson's Mystic Messenger's Psychic Fair will be this Sunday, September 6, 2015, at the DoubleTree Inn on South Alvernon Road. The Fair runs from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. I'll be there to chat with you. :)


Sketching the Invisible

Susy Plummer is a Visionary Artist who lives in Australia. Her entire life, she has been led from one opportunity to another. Each move opened her psychic ability and showed her how to use her gifts to help people. When I interviewed Susy in 2012, she demonstrated how her drawings functioned as psychic readings.

Susy was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island. After college, she was given the opportunity to move to Australia, and she followed that prompt. She worked as a housekeeper, worked in shops, and ran a vegetarian restaurant. She married an Australian.

In her 40s, Susy started thinking she was supposed to do something important, but she didn't know what it was. She took healing courses and became a masseuse. While working on people, she went into a meditative state of mind and began receiving messages about them. She thought that maybe she should work more with the messages than with the massage.

Susy became friends with an artist who was doing Spirit Guide drawings, and thought it might be nice to do drawings for people. Although she had grown up in an artistic family, she had never explored drawing and had no idea what might happen if she tried this work. However, she wondered if she was supposed to use art in conjunction with the intuitive information which was coming to her.

Susy bought a box of pastels and began to draw. She thought of a friend and drew a face. Turns out, the drawing looked like the friend's deceased mother - a woman Susy had never met. This was the first validation that Susy had a gift for drawing the unseen.

Now, Susy takes orders for Spirit Guide drawings and angel drawings. She writes down the person's birth date, does the drawing, and mails the drawing to the client. She finds that there is something in each picture which provides evidence that it came from somewhere else. Many phenomena happen.

She said:

"When I first starting doing these drawings, I felt like I was being trained in a new way of doing things, a new way of consciousness. I think it has to do with being human and being connected to Spirit at the same time; like connecting Heaven and Earth."

When sitting down to draw, Susy says, "I would like a drawing for ‘Mary,'" then begins to draw. Sometimes, she has a vision. Sometimes, she sees a color and uses that color in the drawing. If she doesn't have a vision, she begins drawing and whatever comes through is for the client. She uses her intuitive perception. While drawing, she can ask the face in the drawing if it wants a specific color, and it will indicate an answer.

According to Susy, messages come through like reading a story. The drawing will tell her things in her head, not out loud. In her mind, she might know what the drawing is about. She might know if the drawing is an angel or a past life, or she might hear a name.

One time, Susy did a drawing for a writer, and got the name "Babbette." She knew the person in the drawing was from the 1930s. When she looked online, she found a photo of the real Babbette, along with information on this person. The online photo was quite similar to the drawing Susy had just completed. Babbette had been a writer who passed on. Susy's client was a writer and a poet, and Babbette was her muse.

Susy explained that when she is drawing, she is channeling. She gets information from other places. The drawing is like a tool for a reading, and it reinforces the information. Something happens. There might be a necklace on the drawing which the person just bought.

Susy remarked, "I did a drawing for a healer and he identified with the drawing. The person in the drawing had a crown. When I was drawing it, it was simple, but I thought there was something interesting about the crown. He looked at the drawing and said, ‘Ah, look at that.' He showed me his wrist and he had the crown as a tattoo. He hadn't had it before I did the drawing. He went and got it after I did the drawing, but before he had seen it. Between the time he had ordered the picture, and the time the picture had been delivered, he had gotten the tattoo which matched the crown in the picture. It's obvious that I am tapping into something. He said that the pattern was significant to him which is why he had had it tattooed on his wrist."

I asked, "Are you pleased to have these abilities, or do you find them a burden?"

Susy answered, "Most of the time I think it's amazing! It's fantastic. I'm thrilled every time something happens. To me, it's a miracle. I can't know this stuff. It's amusing. It's cool. That's how I think about it because it is not me doing it, it's divorced from me and I can say, ‘What a great picture.' I drew it, but I didn't draw it. I don't see it until I draw it."

As part of our interview, Susy demonstrated how her visionary artistry works. She did a butterfly drawing for me, along with a card reading. I asked, "Are you thinking about what you are doing, or are you just doing it?" Susy answered, "A little bit of both. Everything is like that. A bit of this and a bit of that. A bit of me and a bit of Spirit. Spirit is using me to do this and you're participating in this as well. Your spirit is saying, ‘Ah, yeah. That's cool.'"

Susy commented that the point of this was not the psychic phenomenon. The point was to assist each other; to have more love and light in the world; and to grow and expand our consciousness and what we know.

* * *

You can find out more about Susy Plummer by checking out her website, 

If you want to read more about Susy, and see some of the drawings mentioned in this blog post, you can read my interview with Susy as a Kindle e-book. To my amazement, I was able to upload six photos as part of the e-book.

To make this even easier to read, I have created a "Featured Interview" page on this website. For one week, I'll have Susy's interview, along with the photos, on the Interview page. If people like that idea, I might feature another interview in the future. Let me know what you think.

Take care.

Figuring out I was psychic
Quote from a Psychic

I asked: How and when did you know you had special abilities? Did you have a mentor?

She answered:

"I figured it out on my own. The more I learned about anything metaphysical, the more I understood the possibilities.

"In 1970, I started a study group in Wisconsin to understand metaphysics and I had a very powerful experience during an automatic writing session. We were all sitting in my studio and the teacher explained what automatic writing was. I had just returned from a trip to Sedona and had found out that the mother of a good friend of mine had passed away while I was gone. The woman who had passed away was named Hannah. In the past, every time I had had lunch with Hannah she had said, 'Thank you for being my friend.' In addition, whenever she talked about her son she would say, 'Oh, Ron will be Ron.'

"Back to the automatic writing session. We did a guided meditation and we each had a pen and paper. The teacher said that if nothing was happening, just to write our names. I started to write my name and my arm started shaking. I opened my eyes in disbelief, and I wrote, 'Sad.' I wasn't crying, but suddenly tears were running out of my eyes. Then I wrote, 'Thank you for being my friend,' and I realized it was Hannah. My hand moved down the paper and my hand wrote, 'Ron will be . . . '

Healing Our Selves and Others

The flash of light? Last week, I asked if anyone had seen a flash of light and heard a message. I didn't hear back about this phenomenon, so I'm asking again. If you have seen the flash of light, I would love to hear about it.

Physical, Mental, and Energetic Healing

Today, I want to share a few things I have heard about healing. Some of these ideas are new to me.

According to the psychics, we can heal ourselves and we can assist others in their healing. Because we have physical bodies, mental bodies, and energetic bodies, healing can work on any of these levels individually, or it can work on all three at once.

To begin, we have physical bodies and can go to doctors and medical personnel who specialize in mending these bodies. We also have mental bodies and we can go to psychologists and other mental health professionals for assistance with the way we think about our lives and our selves.

In addition, we have energy bodies. We can bring in light and love, and align our energy with our highest good.

Energetically, we can also help other people. We can send energy to assist friends and family. This energy can give them the boost they need to re-align themselves with their greatest good. They may have been ready to give up, but the extra energy from an outside source can give them the strength to decide to heal. We can send prayers and good vibes to another person, but that person has the choice whether or not to accept the energy for their healing.

Energy workers often use Reiki and other modalities to bolster other people's energy bodies. Reiki can be done in person or remotely.

How can all of this work? Here are a few new ideas about energy healing.

Our energy systems overlap with the energy systems of people who are close to us. When we boost our own energy, it can help the other people with whom we are energetically connected. For example, if we have a friend who isn't well and we spend time with them, our energy can intermingle with their energy, and our health can extend to them. However, we have to protect ourselves so that we don't pick up their illnesses. It works both ways.

This kind of connection works even when we aren't physically together. One psychic says it is like a Venn Diagram with double circles. Wherever our circles intersect, is the area we have in common. If we work on our self in our big circle, we can make a difference in the areas of overlap. We can clear our area, allowing others to clear their area, but we cannot change another person deliberately. They must initiate their change.

Similarly, our energy can still be connected to people who have crossed to the spirit world. In that case, healing ourselves can also help to heal them (and vice versa).

A few weeks ago, I heard a new theory about how healing can work when we are not in the same place as the person to whom we are sending energy. According to one psychic, the mechanism for communication between energy bodies involves "biophotons." He explained that we are all filled with light energy in the form of biphotons. Biophotons help our cells communicate with each other. They can also communicate with cells in other people's bodies. Biophotons allow light energy to move across space and influence other energy bodies. Someday this theory might be confirmed by scientists. Remember, you heard it here first. Laughing

Energy healers have mentioned two different things about healing another person. One group noted that they can bring the healing energy in from Source and move it into a person's body, but the person has to be willing to accept it for their personal healing. Despite what people might say aloud, on a deep level, not everyone wants to be healed.

When we talk about not being willing to accept the energy, we are not necessarily talking about a conscious decision. We are talking about someone receiving energy, then thinking maybe they really aren't worthy of a positive outcome, or they are not sure what they want. Doubts and negative self-talk get in the way. The energy which the individual isn't willing to accept at that time, is stored. Later, the person may choose to accept this energy. It never goes away.

However, the person might feel that they have completed this lifetime and are ready to move on.

A second group of energy workers says that they actually heal people. They can move energy into a body and the energy works on the issues. It is true healing.

Now, for the big finish:

One psychic told me that she had been working to heal a friend in the hospital when Jesus arrived to work with her on the healing. Not being a Christian, she was stunned to see Jesus and feel His energy.

She said:

"This really happened: Jesus came into the room. I knew it. I felt it. It was extremely strong. I closed my eyes as tight as I could because I knew I wasn't supposed to look. Of course I wasn't supposed to look. I was in the presence of an extreme healer. It wasn't up to me to look. It was way too powerful. You're not supposed to look at G-d. Jesus was maybe not G-d, but was on a plane beyond which I was allowed to go. I knew that. I knew I was not allowed to look. I just happened to be there, but I was not privileged to see. So, I didn't see.

"Then, He left and I could barely speak. I asked my friend, ‘What did He say?' I hadn't heard anything. It was like he just swooped into the room. My friend reported that Jesus had said, ‘I am the healer.' Jesus was the healer. Those were the words.

"After that visit, when I would do what I call aura healing, I was able to invoke Jesus to help my friend. If you had told me I would be able to do this, I would have told you that you were nuts. This happened just one time and I don't know if I will ever have this kind of experience again. It was based on my friend's connection with Jesus, not mine."


There is so much to learn. We barely touch the tip of the iceberg of all there is to know. People tell me their stories and I share their experiences with you. If you are living through the same things, this is your confirmation.

Let me know if you have any comments.

The River of Life

Quotes from a Channeled Message - August 17, 2015

This is a personal message I received through a psychic last Monday, a week before the stock market dropped 1500 points. It contains philosophical information, a caution against trying to change what is, and a note regarding the world economy.

You are going towards a creek, a very safe creek. Not an intimidating creek. It flows beautifully. This is the river of life. What you will see today when you peer into the river of life will be different tomorrow, for this river moves gently along the path in which it is designed to go.

In the path of life, there are times in which the river is narrow and you can dip your feet and feel safe. And there are times when the path of this river is roaring and you keep your distance because it seems almost violent. Understand that it is the same river, the one that is endearing to your toes and the one that you know could also be very dangerous. That is the guarantee that you are going to get in life: it will change. It will constantly flow. You are going to look today and what you see today is not what will be there tomorrow. Remember when you get the information, that it flows, it shifts. Does not make it wrong or untrue. It makes it ever-flowing.

As you are watching the river flow, you see when it is coming up against the banks. You see how other nations and countries are being flooded and you want to go and build little dams and help them. That is against the flow of nature. Things need to flow. You can have awareness and send prayers. That is stewardship. It is not up to you to build the dams, to send the rafts, and to change what has been predestined, long before you and they came into this incarnation.

It is easier when it is on the other side of the world. It gets a lot scarier when it is in your own backyard. But you are free and you are observing. Don't ever forget you are observing the flow of life. You have asked to know, you have asked to see; observe. A reporter observes. You, our dear, can observe and report. Not cast a judgement. Not sway the public one way or the other. Observe, and report what you observe.

Local economies will cause a ripple effect that will come from countries in other areas of the world. More of a panic feeling. You are safe. Buy not into the fear because there will be countries which will go bankrupt. Being that everyone is connected in the inner core, in the fiber, in the webbing; we invest in them, they invest in us. We are all one. It is a necessary wake-up call, for the US has been clear in how much debt there is. Other countries have not had that transparency, and if the US is in that type of debt, woe to the rest.

There is a lot coming down that you need to observe. And merely observe.

Thank you.

The Fun of Dying

The Fun of Dying

As I've interviewed psychics and Mediums, I've heard a lot about the afterlife: where we go and what we do. Recently I read the book, The Fun of Dying. Most of the material in this book was consistent with what I've heard from others, but there were a few fascinating, new ideas. Today, I would like to share five of these concepts with you.

The Fun of Dying was written by Roberta Grimes (2010, Greater Reality Publications). She reviewed worldwide literature on the death experience, then compiled the evidence into one slim book.

Here are five things which captured my imagination:

1) Summerland. After physical death, our soul goes to a place we commonly call "the other side" or "Heaven." This book reports that there are seven major after-death levels separated by their rates of vibration. The lowest level is full of tormented people in foul-smelling squalor, who can eventually work their way up and out of that level. The highest levels are reserved for the spiritually advanced.

Levels three through five are an earth-solid paradise known as Summerland, where the newly-dead can recover from their earthly lives, and enjoy a time of play, work, and learning. I had heard the term "Summerland" before, but I wasn't certain what it meant. Now, I know.

2) Trust. After the death of the body, the soul rises up and is escorted to the other side by someone who is trusted. This passage made me consider who I trusted well enough to follow to the afterlife. My father? My dogs? Who would you trust so completely that you would follow them, unquestioningly, after death?

3) Reincarnation. People tell me that time is not linear. Time is a construct we use in this dimension so we can separate one moment from another. I am told that our multiple lifetimes are not led sequentially, but simultaneously. This book provides a new metaphor for reincarnation. A quick note states that it is as if all of our lives are in a huge pot. We can ladle up a life when we want to live it. We can pick a life from any point in time, go there, experience that life, return to the other side, pour it back into the pot, and decide if we want to ladle out another life.

4) Deathbed Visions. Until the mid-1900s most people died natural deaths, without sedation. The dying often had deathbed visions which were witnessed by other people.

On page 51, Ms. Grimes writes: "People in this pre-death stage often see people who don't seem to be there. Those around them may think they are hallucinating, but in fact the dying are being visited by predeceased loved ones. The visitors might be friends and relatives or white-robed angels or even friendly strangers. And they can be animals. One hermit who trusted no one else reportedly was met by his long-dead horse.

"The dying may chat with these visitors who are invisible to the living, or they may lie staring at an empty corner because their visitors often appear in the upper corners of the room. There are rare occasions when psychic relatives sitting at a deathbed share in deathbed visions, but what is more common is for people near death to lie quietly and gaze at the corners of the room as they converse with visitors in their mind."

The people seen in deathbed visions are always dead. The dying person might not know that the other person has crossed, but they have.

5) The Flash of Light. As a child, the author experienced a flash of light and a heard a message. She didn't tell anyone about this experience for many years. She looked through the literature for hints that other people had experienced similar phenomena, but she never found that evidence.

As a mature adult, she began sharing her experience with others and found that about 5% of people had experienced some variation of the flash of light with a voice and a message. Personally, I think I experienced this once in my 20s. It was a strange and wonderful moment, but I wasn't sure it had actually happened. Was it my imagination or was it real?

Have you had the flash of light? I would love to hear about your experience.

There is a lot more to this book than the ideas listed above. It emphasizes that dying is usually a wonderful experience. In addition, there are long explorations of the ways that science and religion analyze the death experience. There are chapters on quantum physics, the brain/mind connection, reality, consciousness, and the teachings of Jesus. There is a chapter noting the reasons people might remain "stuck" in the earthly realm after death (this is NOT the fun of dying). The book contains advice for living our best life and has an extensive list of books and resources for further study.

If you are interested in reading more about this book, or contacting the author, this is her website:


Now, send an e-mail and tell me if you've seen the flash of light.
