Meditation: The Quieter You Become, The More You Hear

Published March 20, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings


I love slipping into that place, between waking and dreaming. Nothing matters now but the breath moving in and out of my body, the oxygen nourishing my blood and organs. 

I always think I’ve made it when I enter that space of conscious quiet. There are no pressing demands, there are no worries about things I must do, there are no worries about things I must fear, there is only the present, the here and now. 

Taking the time to be still and quiet is hugely important to my work as a medium and it’s great for my well-being. I’m able to project myself to wherever I want to be. Today, I was on a mountain top, looking out upon a sunset and the ocean crashing below. A gentle breeze was swirling around me. 

This gave way to a beach with crashing waves and palm trees waving in the breeze. Then it all turned into fragments of light and an illuminated doorway, which kept eluding me as I walked toward it. 

You can go anywhere you want in meditation. Just put your mind there and there you are. Sometimes, I go to familiar places like my parents living room. Other times I head far away. I always come back refreshed and rejuvenated. Any fear, stress or anxiety I’m holding onto from my day is gone. When I return, it is just me and the here and now. 

If you are working on development of your intuition, meditation is a great place to start. Once you learn to quiet all of the clatter going on in the physical, you can download messages from the non-physical much more easily. You will be able to distinguish the voice. 

Even if you’re not working on intuition or spirit communication, meditation has tons of wonderful effects on your body and your state of mind. You don’t need to sit for hours either. Start with five minutes and work yourself up to about half an hour. Once you make it a habit, you’ll look forward to it every day.

Spiritual dream work – throat chakra surgery

Published March 12, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

I had a strange yet interesting dream last night. I think that we do a lot of soul work while we are asleep since we are able to leave our slumbering bodies in bed. Last night I dreamed that I was in some kind of hospital, which didn’t really look like your conventional hospital. It was white and sterile and I was lying on a table and the doctors were operating on my throat chakra. 

After the surgery was over, in the dream, I was coughing up blood while I was in recovery. I think this means that I was letting go of something or that something was removed from my throat chakra. Probably some kind of pesky blockage. After the blood came up, the doctors inflated my throat chakra with a balloon to reopen it and make it larger. 

The throat chakra is associated with communication, hearing, listening and speaking the truth as it is.  It’s also a centre of self expression and decision making. It is the centre of purification, and can also help us get in touch with feelings that have been suppressed or forgotten about. 

In thinking about it now, I walked into the metaphysical shop yesterday and the person behind the counter greeted me by name. I guess my photo and word about me is getting out. I thought it was cool and was chatting about readings and whatnot. I think I’ve finally reached the point where I really feel that it’s okay to be me. It’s okay to be public with my mediumship ability and the power it has to help and heal others, and above all else, the fact that I’m not crazy. 

Something was removed from my throat chakra last night and I think it will result in progress. I’m ready to speak my truth. 

Why you can’t measure yourself with someone else’s stick

Published February 27, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

Tonight I was thinking about society and our desire to do and have what the media and outside influences tell us we should do or have. 

We all want to be accepted by our peers. I think it is kind of sad that we have gotten to the point where retailers and the media can tell us what will make us col and acceptable. I mean, I guess societal norms have always determined social acceptance, but what happened to diversity?

I can’t imagine living my life as anyone else or in any way other than the way I am currently living it. It was scary to come out of the closet and become a practicing medium, but now that I am fully out of the psychic closet, I’m not looking back. The world is so much more vibrant and I feel better in my own skin. 

Everyone is on their own journey and is fighting battles we know nothing about which is why kindness and compassion should always be our approach. Life is not a contest. We are not here to be in direct competition with each other, we are here to help one another and make each other stronger. 

I don’t understand the incessant need we seem to have to measure ourselves against others. What someone has or how successful or spiritual they are has nothing to do with your journey. They are not your gatepost or measuring stick. Keep your eyes on your own journey, or you could miss some awesome stuff along the way. Help and nurture others as much as you can out of kindness and remember, they are on their own journey and will find their own way, just as you will. Assist and trust and we will all be fine. 

Remember to have faith in the universe and to know that where you are is where you are meant to be. Do that which inspires and fulfills you. That will keep you on the path to manifesting all your heart’s desires. 

My Prayer for my clients

Published February 15, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

Before every reading, I say a quick prayer and set a quick intention asking that I will be able to provide you with what you need for the greatest good at this time. 

I ask for messages which deliver the greatest level of comfort, closure, clarity and guidance you need at this time. 

I ask that the messages received be clear and understandable. 

I ask Archangel Azrael to help me to be an effective channel between this world and the next and assist in facilitating communication between my clients and their loved ones through me. 

While I’m not here to meet your expectations, or convince you whether or not mediumship is true or real, I am charged with the duty of delivering the messages you need from other realms. 

Thank you for the opportunity to be of service!

Why the future is difficult…

Published January 23, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

A lot of clients come to me and ask me about the future.

They want to know what their children will do for a living, etc.

Being a medium, my specialty is to tell you any messages that come across from people you know that are on the other side. While I will answer your questions about what might come to pass in the future, it’s always with the disclaimer that life is based on decisions. Your children (and you) are going to make a lot of decisions between now and the future. I can read the energy as it stands now, but the reading I give you today will likely be different than a reading I give you six months from now because things can change rapidly.

When I channel and bring in the information, I ask for guidance and messages that are required at the present moment. I pull in what you are going through now and what you need to know to get through it. I pull in any persistent messaging from spirit and pass it on.

A fortune teller and a medium are pretty different things, and part of life should be a mystery. Sometimes the information that you want is not information you are meant to have at this time, so if you go to a medium and you can’t get answers to the questions you’re worried about, rest calmly in the faith that this is information you’re not meant to have at this time.  The answers will be made clear at the perfect time for you to receive them.

The future is constantly changing and evolving, look forward with excited anticipation to see what it brings!

 

A visit from my dog

Published January 18, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

As a medium, I’m open to and welcome visits from spirits during meditation and when I’m open to it.

Last night I was doing a quick chakra clearing meditation with toning by Dean Evenson. I really like the toning because I can actually feel the sounds in my chakras as I’m making them.

Anyway, while I was in my heart chakra and picturing my beautiful green canopy of trees I always see while I’m clearing my heart chakra, I recognized an energy that came into the room with me. My yellow lab, Joey.

Joey passed away the day after I had a miscarriage in 2012. I remember I was off work because of the miscarriage and Joey had just got out of surgery and I was lying on the floor cuddling him most of the day. He was sick, but I think he knew I was upset and we were there for each other.

It was nice to feel him again. I don’t know if any other mediums experience this, but when an energy shows up for me, and I recognize the energy signature, I cry. My grandma comes, I cry. My dog comes, I cry.

I guess it’s just the intensity of the emotions that I felt for them when they were here on earth. What a fitting time for a dog to wander into my meditation though. Just as I’m thinking the phrase, “I give and receive unconditional love.” No wonder he showed up. 🙂

Teaching our children about limitless potential through stories

Published January 14, 2017 by Metaphysicalmusings

One of my favourite pleasures in life is reading bedtime stories to my son. It’s good for us to wind down together, and his vocabulary is expanding by leaps and bounds. He recognizes letters and numbers and he’s a heck of a counter, but I digress!

I like to think about what I’m reading him and what the morals are teaching him. One story he and I really like is Scuffy the Tugboat. I was taking a harder look at Scuffy the other day and what he teaches us, and now I’m wondering if I really do like Scuffy as much as I thought.

654209-_uy200_

Let me take you into the story. Meet Scuffy, a toy tugboat who is not content with sailing around a bathtub because he is “meant for bigger things.” So far so good, Scuffy. You are aware of your infinite potential! Good job.

The man who owns the toy shop and his little boy take Scuffy to a brook, where he quickly takes off and travels along many different waterways, a brook, a stream, a river and eventually the ocean where he gets quite scared and wishes he was back with the man and the little boy because the ocean is too scary for him. Low and behold, just as he is about to sail off into the ocean and he’s wishing for the man and the little boy, they scoop him up and take him back home where he is content to be in the bathtub. Wait, what?

I get the lesson that you should stay with your parents and not take off. That’s a good one, but I think it teaches us that when you get scared and hit a fear block, you shouldn’t try to conquer it. You should just go back to your bathtub and be content to settle into mediocrity. Oh no, Scuffy. You had such potential.

I think with kids it’s so important to impart spirituality and lessons in consciousness when they are young. I want my son to know that his potential is limitless and that the world is his oyster. The only limits in life are the ones that you place on yourself. If you can dream it, you can do it. Cliché, but true.

There are so many reasons that you are the bomb dot com (did I just say that? Oh well. Proud 90’s child here). We can take goals and crush them. We can either allow others to limit us or we can power through those blocks we encounter and push on through. We are amazing, strong co-creators of our lives.

I think a better example of resilience and belief in oneself is The Little Engine That Could. She’s just a little blue engine, and after the big strong engines have left the dolls and toys high and dry, she’s their only hope. She’s never been over the mountain, but she thinks she can, she thinks she can, she thinks she can (LOL). She gets over the mountain with the dolls and toys and saves the day and as she puffs down the mountain she says, “I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could.”

That’s better. She believed it and she did it.

Maybe I’m taking too much time to think about the stories I’m reading my child, but I just thought that at the end, Scuffy was a little bit disempowering. You go out, you get scared, you settle for the status quo.

I get the lesson about gratitude for what you have, and that’s a good one in Scuffy’s book, but I think it could have been done in a more empowering way.

Just thought I’d share that with you today. What do you think?
