Are they aliens?

They seem to live completely in their own world. They often wear funny things on their heads backward or sideways. They talk only using their thumbs. They have funny markings or holes in their bodies. They do not understand the rest of us at all. We don't really understand them. They have no desire to live in community with us. Our rules and regulations mean nothing to them. Are they beings from another planet. Or just our teenagers hitting that stage?...

Raven's World-22

Here are Raven's thoughts today:

"The world of Spirit is very much with us. It is not separate as many of you have come to believe. Your separateness beliefs have superimposed a veil between the worlds. Heaven is truly here on Earth. For us (your animal friends) and those of you who remember, we can interact with Spirit. We do not fear death. For we are still very much with ALL family. Here and there. We see the Spirits of Nature, too. That is why you watch us looking at and talking to and playing with friends you may not allow yourself to see."

"Debt" perception

Right before last night's radio show on manifesting Spirit gave me an exercise to share with my listeners. It sounds a bit crazy. But it's about changing the way we perceive things. So in general we view debt as 'bad' and a lot of income as 'good'. So for one day Spirit challenges us to view it in the opposite way. So, mucho debt becomes a good thing. And lots of income becomes a bad thing. Turn our usual perceptions on their head. So if you're one of those people who have a lot of debt, for one day you celebrate this. If you are someone who's not pulling in a lot of dinero right now, this you celebrate, too. Spirit says that if we find peace with whatever we're making (or not making). And then we stop seeing our in-debt-edness as a horrible thing we'll be able to increase our flow of abundance. Helping us to achieve that debt forgiveness, too, that they talked about in my last post. The really cool thing is that after mentioning this challenge on the show last night, a woman in chat shared that she had gotten the same idea a while back and she is now debt free!!!

Debt forgiveness

In preparing for our radio show sun. night (6pm est) on manifesting, I had a thought. What if as part of the bail out of the banks, we included the condition of debt forgiveness for some. What if the individual or family or small business who is using credit cards to survive, for instance, got some relief. Instead of the companies taking the bail out money AND jacking up interest rates into the 20s out of greed. Thereby kicking 'us' when we're down. (and while I'm on the topic, what if those in charge of gas hikes didn't screw us this summer?) What if those struggling to pay the mortgage because of loss of a job that they had for 20 years got a year off or something (forgiven, so to speak). A period of 'grace'. So that they can find their footing again. Spirit let me have my rant. Then they gently came in and suggested I think about the term 'debt forgiveness'. "Isn't that what you all need." They said. "For yourselves. Why don't you start with forgiving yourself for wherever you are. For whatever you did or had to do to get there. Instead you blame yourselves. We hear you. Over and over again you beat yourself up for where you are. For this 'debt'. You hold yourselves (and each other) 'accountable' to the point where it takes its toll on you in other ways. Health manifestations. Family break ups. And most important you hold yourself cut off from source. From love. From which abundance flows. Source is all forgiving."

Raven's World-21

A couple weeks ago hubby and I accompanied friends when synchronistically they came across a puppy. It was the breed they always wanted. But they wanted a male dog and this was a female. I could hear both the guides and the puppy herself clearly indicating this puppy needed to go home with our friends. It was meant to be that they have this dog. They hesitated. I used careful language to encourage them to consider adopting this puppy. It was not my decision, after all. But the guides were screaming at me...and now she thankfully is the newest member of this awesome family! I asked Raven about this and here's what she had to say: (if you have a question for Raven, just leave a comment and she'll answer it in her next post!)

"We (your animals) come to you in male or female form. It matters not to us. For we are all energy beings. Male and female is simply energy. It is you who make such a big deal about the labels. A male dog can be filled with female energy and a female dog can be filled with male energy. Because every living thing has both. You will get the energy that you and your family needs most. Neither is better than the other. It is simply about balancing out what is most needed. Spirit knows what is most needed and will bring that to you. The question is will you accept it?"

You know what I'd love to see represented in our culture?! An elder woman's face! I'd love to see her face in Hollywood, in magazines, the media, on tv. I'd love for us to honor the elder female with all her wrinkles, spots and grey hair. We talked about the divine female on our radio show on Mother's Day (see archives) but we didn't have time to talk about this aspect. Which is one of my greatest pet peeves. All of us seem to strive for a youthful beauty. Some even under the knife. It has become our culture's definition of 'beauty' for women. Does anyone realize it's an unattainable goal since we all do age. We of course all age in our own way. Some gracefully and some looking a bit weathered from all the challenges we've surmounted. But each beautiful. You know who I think has one of the most beautiful faces? Maya Angelou. I've admired her since I read one of her first books back in school. Her face is pure and it's inspiring. It shows the wisdom and the strength that she owns for all she has had to walk through. This concept speaks to a greater devalue of the female aspect in our culture. If only we could honor each of us for our own uniqueness through every stage of our lives.

Today I have some time to actually exhale (before going to work tonight). Our food coffers need to be refilled and some checks need to make their way to the bank. But other than that the day is mine! I hear Raven putting her two cents in for a walk. I hear the couch calling me for nap. I'd like to do more research and organizing for some new classes I'm presenting soon (like empath 101). Most important (and a little known secret addiction of mine, I might add) is that Michael finally woke up on GH and well, I need to see that! Enjoy your Monday!

Full Sunday

After a busy day yesterday of festivals and a two-year old's birthday party, I'm off to work this morning. I'm looking forward to tonight's show ("Discovering Nature's Spirit on at 6 p.m. EST) where our special guest is our beloved Dory Dzinski who is the editor and publisher of The Door Opener magazine and also a spiritual and holistic counselor. Join us if you can!

Busy, busy, busy

Wow, work and home stuff has kept me so busy lately that I haven't had time to blog or attend to other's blogs either. Hubby turned 40 this week, one son has prom, one son has a graduation next week, and we've had wonderful outings with friends. It seems like this pattern may go on through the end of may. It has made the moments of silence, so to speak, the moments of alone time even more precious to me. Work is blessedly busy, too, for which I'm most grateful. I'm meeting wonderful people and getting exciting feedback about how fairies and intuitive hits are playing awesome roles in their lives! And this weekend is forest folk fest if you're interested in stopping by. I'll be there tomorrow! There will be presenters, performers, vendors, feasting...all benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Raven's World-20

Here's what Raven has to share today:

"We (your animals) are all forgiving. We do not hold grudges. We never feel slighted. Like the source you came from we see only love. We are pure positive representations of the Divine. Here on Earth. We come to you and reflect this for you. We are always seeing you through the eyes of Source, through the eyes of love."

Awareness & a special day

For those of you who have reason to celebrate or be celebrated today I wish you a happy mother's day. In my work I come across many people who find this day to be difficult and sometimes painful. In all the hype they are often forgotten. The ones perhaps who did not have such a good mom. Some moms are abusive or neglectful. The ones who may have lost their mom. Or lost a child. The ones who may not be able to have a child. There are so many out there who are in situations or relationships that may be struggling. And today can be a reminder of that struggle. So it is today I honor all.

These are some ideas we are going to explore further tonight on our radio show (from 6-7 pm est). Our topic is the divine feminine and we will be offering live on-air readings to callers, too!

Random show thoughts

I have a special treat this morning. We have an impromptu breakfast party at our house and the best part is hubby is doing all the cooking!

As this season's shows wind down and the weather warms up for a summer of outdoor activity, I find myself with some random tv thoughts. How about you? For instance, there is really no way that Lost could come up with an ending that would satisfy me. Their plot lines have been so convoluted that even they can't possibly pull it all together no matter what time period they're in. It was interesting to see so many 'hallucination' plot lines. There was House, Boothe on Bones and of course Sam on Supernatural (well, he was withdrawing from demon blood, of course). Medium totally sold out and is paying for it. You know my thoughts on Ghostwhisperer (not diggin it) and for those of us paying attention...Jim was shot before they took advantage of her fertile time. And just a word of advice, when you're remarrying your dead husband you really need to elope! The CSI's have lost their interest for me. It's funny, when I was a prosecutor they just pissed me off because they were so far away from reality. Now I'm uninterested because Gil left and who wants to watch 'all horatio all the time'. Sure, Danny and Lindsey had a baby girl...but the rest...who cares. The mentalist still peaks my interest...NCIS is getting interesting...and I always like the Unit. Does anyone else still hold out hope that Tony is not completely a bad guy on 24? Come on, he could be deep under ferreting out the names in that group...couldn't he...? Is it obvious that I succumbed to far too much tv to get me through the winter?!

Raven's World-19

Good morning everyone. Welcome to Raven's Wed. column. Here's what she'd like to share today:

"The Green World is calling. So many of our human friends are disconnected. The green world, the trees, mother earth, the flowers...carries the spirit of the earth. You are also a part of the spirit of the earth. Technology, work, stress, responsibilities have you tuned out. Many of you are running on autopilot. The end of the day comes and you have no idea how you got there. "Stop and smell the roses" is a wonderful phrase of reminder. Just a quick opportunity to reconnect to that spirit that is you, too. The more you allow spirit to flow through you, the more you will find you have to give to others."

Tower theme

As you may have read from my prior blog posts (ie. love...), every now and then a theme will emerge from my reading practice. A variety of beautiful clients come in for readings, and I find myself saying to them same thing from spirit. Lately the theme has been, 'boy, is the ***t really hitting the fan!' Many are finding that not only is our economy, etc. in chaos mode, but the chaos is infiltrating relationships, home life, and immediate community as well. It's like the tower card in tarot that often depicts lightning striking the top of the tower and the tower falling. It will show people falling out the windows of the tower. And the image can be a metaphor for how many are feeling now. They keep falling behind over teakettle and wonder when it's going to stop. And those of you who know tarot, know that the tower has to fall when it is built on a faulty foundation. Then it is rebuilt on solid ground instead. So that's what spirit is saying, that the old must fall away for the new to be rebuilt. Our structures are outmoded and don't fit anymore. The problem is that because sometimes the old is all we know we fear this change. So we resist. And that just makes things worse. For relationships, spirit points out that your loved ones are 'kindly' reflecting for you all of the old patterns within YOU that need to be acknowledged, healed, loved and shifted. So that you are no longer living from patterns, behaviors, and beliefs that no longer serve you. Over the course of your life, one or more of these phenomena take place from time to time. The problem right now is that the energies are speeding up and it's all happening at the same time. And we are overwhelmed. Spirit understands this. The guides and angels want us to keep an eye to the bigger picture. To the new tower of our life that will be stronger. So you understand the purpose of it all. And do your best to stay grounded, centered and open to the future possibilities that are so bright, they assure us.

Date night

Last night hubby took me to see the phantom of the opera. What a treat!
