Raven's World-50

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"You think a situation is either good or bad. You give it a label. Depending on your particular perspective. But the situation itself is neutral. We (your animal friends and companions) are here to remind you that everything is love. You can choose to find the love in both the 'good' and the 'bad' for it is always present."

Are you sure?

I have to give a lot of credit to those of you who are single parents. I know there are so many times I am grateful to have the balance of my other half. He is able to see our boys as they are much more than I can. He knows what our 19 and 18 year old young men are about and are capable of. I, on the other hand, have to admit that sometimes in my heart they are still 5 and 6. So, when hubby says to me, the boys are gonna be in their own plow truck for this past snow storm, I look at him and say, "Really, are you sure?" It's the same reaction I gave back when they first got thrown in the water behind the boat with a pair of skis on their little feet. "Are you sure?" I asked hubby. When we taught them to drive, when they brought home their first girlfriend. "Are you sure they're ready for this?" And hubby just nods, "it'll be fine." And the plowing was no different. They ended up doing a phenomenal job without mishap. I will admit to 'cheating' in the middle of the night by asking the angels to show them to me. And I saw a bright white light surrounding them so I knew they were fine. And then I could go back to sleep. So that is my advice, as long as your reservations aren't based on anything 'real', you just gotta trust 'um!

"The Flower Speaks"

"The Flower Speaks" is an oracle card deck that incorporates the energy and essences of the flowers, tarot, the beauty and power of nature, Native American shamanism, the divine feminine and astrology in a way that can't help but touch you. The images draw you in and speak to you. If you also have the larger companion book, the language and the poetry within resonate to a deep soul level. I have been using this deck for myself and my clients for quite some time. There is no other work like it and it was part of the inspiration behind my own working and creation of flower essences. Marlene L'Abbe' (formerly Rudginsky) is the author and artist who created "The Flower Speaks" and I am so pleased and excited to announce that she will be my guest tomorrow evening on Discovering Nature's Spirit (7-8 pm EST) on She will be discussing the oracle deck, flower essences, her work as an artist of 30 years and also clearing entities as she is an intuitive reader as well. It's a show not to miss (archives are available as always).

Raven's World-49

Here's what Raven would like to share today:
"Management. Many of you are just managing your lives. You manage your kids, your spouse, your job, your stress... We (your animal friends and companions) are here to show you there is another way. Life is meant to be enjoyed. Not just managed. BE there for your kids. BE there for your spouse. You have to practice putting everything else aside in your mind. Whatever you have on your to DO list. Let it go. And just BE. BE with yourself. BE in the moment. BE with your family, friends... Joy will follow. Once you open this door."

Time & holidays

With the holidays in the mix, the time is really moving for me lately. This year in particular has just booked by. Which in retrospect is not such a bad thing, since it had quite a few challenges. Work has been busy for which I am always grateful. I want to send a shout out of gratitude to Jess who was our guest on last night's show. I just love to share energy and read with her! We discussed the upcoming holidays and all that they entail from a medium's perspective. Love!!! Well, that's the crux of the matter. Speaking of love we shared a wonderful Saturday night with our family together trimming the tree and feasting on a pot of spaghetti and meatballs. Then Sunday it was a holiday dinner out with friends. While I'm on the topic of the holidays I always wonder why we can't all get along. I watched a story on the news where one of our town schools is banning xmas decorations. I thought wouldn't it be cool if we decorated for all faiths side by side. Remember the large bulletin boards in our elementary schools. We could have xmas next to Hanuka, next to Kwanzaa. And then they were worried about the Jehovah's so they could have a space next in line with their words explaining why they don't celebrate. Making sure that they cover the beliefs of every student in the class. Think of the sharing and acceptance that would foster.

Raven's World-48

Here are Raven's thoughts today:
"Illusion can be a powerful force. A mask to what is real if you let it. If you keep yourself separate from the source within you. Then you begin to believe the fear, the stay stuck in the anger and the resentments. Look to us (your animal friends and companions) to guide you. For we never get caught up in those illusions. We are our source connection. In body. Always. As are you!"

This past week has been a whirlwind of activity. Blessedly so. So I shouldn't be surprised when I almost missed my own anniversary. If it wasn't for the beautiful women at yesterday's Reiki I training who asked me about the opening of The Purple Rose, I may not have remembered that yesterday was in fact the Purple Rose's eighth anniversary!! It has been a journey of learning, laughter, tears, giving, receiving and oh so many blessings. I'm most grateful for all of you and all of your support!
Join our celebration tonight on Discovering Nature's Spirit radio show (7-8 pm EST) as we bring back the topic of the Empath. Our sensitive friends caused quite a wonderful stir the first time we discussed it so lets delve even further into what it all means. Readings for callers, too, at 718-664-6906!

Raven's World-47

Here's what Raven has to share today:
"Faces may come and go but love always remains in steady flow."
