Ack! A Big Joke on Me!

Today a huge truth was revealed to me with great force. For months now, my guardian angels have been suggesting that I delete a big chunk of old data from my flash drive. So I deleted some files.

Then my flash drive started acting up – sometimes connecting and sometimes not. And I’ve been thinking I should transfer the data on it to another flash drive, but never took the time. So yesterday it quit altogether – the actual drive – the USB port is working fine.

In the middle of all the testing I was doing (just to make sure the drive was really dead) the flash drive in my head came on and I realized that this was the real deal – my files were gone. However, instead of having a panic attack about this, I started laughing. I laughed and laughed, even though some of those files were important and I would have some major rewriting to do.  (Significantly, the only file that survived was my journal, only because I had to save it on my desktop yesterday since, unbeknownst to me, that was when my flash drive ultimately gave up).

On a different, but related note, it would now be appropriate to warn you that the name of this blog will soon be changed (for the umpteenth time). I haven’t 100% made up my mind about the new name, but it will reflect the transition I’ve been going through the past few months (thus, the absence of articles) both personally and professionally. Nothing radical, but an important shift in emphasis to Life Purpose, with  numerology as the means to its discovery.

I love empowering people to live the purpose they were born for, and I love every time I get a notice that someone has purchased my book. It really thrills me that this person is about to embark on an exciting, life-changing journey of challenge and fulfillment.

I also love doing personal Chaldean Soul Profiles. I love introducing people to their spiritual selves. I love the “Wow” response as we talk about the powerful qualities that make them unique; about the talents that enable them to create the life of their dreams. I love sharing with them how to use their challenges to grow into the powerful individuals they were meant to be.

There are many ways to discover your life purpose. Chaldean numerology is the simplest, quickest way I have found to re-discover who you really are.  You will choose the way that is best for you. The important thing to me is that you do it. You deserve to live a life of enjoyment and fulfilling achievement.

So go ahead. Is there anything in your life that you don’t need any longer? Anything you can delete from your files or give or throw away? Maybe you will be more courageous than I was. Maybe you’ll clean all your old stuff out before the universe steps in and causes a major eruption.

The Law of Attraction in Action

Magnesy (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By now almost everybody knows that the Law of Attraction brings you what you think about. There are hundreds of articles, blogs, books, and websites about activating the Law of Attraction in your life. Many of us forget that using the Law of Attraction is effortless. You don’t have to be “spiritual” to experience it. It is always in action, and it works for everyone. If we pay attention to what’s happening, we see it everywhere.

From time to time, I forget to notice the Law of Attraction in my life. If I’m in haste mode and perceive it’s not working for me, I create static about it. So I’ve decided to start a project, beginning today, to notice the Law of Attraction in my life. My intention, each day for the next three months, is to write down some way the Law of Attraction has demonstrated itself in my life. By then, noticing the Law of Attraction in my life should be as automatic as breathing.

Why bother? This project will show me the quality of my thinking, since some examples will be negative and some positive. I expect to learn to create more of what I want in my life and less of what I don’t want.

Sometimes the Law of Attraction is not obvious to us, or perhaps our experience of it is so insignificant (it’s manifesting with small things) that it’s hard to see. I had an experience several months ago that illustrates this.

One day I noticed that one of the tires on my car was low on air, so I went to my neighborhood gas station to fill it up. Much to my surprise, I noticed that now they are charging $1.00 for 3 minutes of air. I got angry because … first of all, air is free – we breathe it all the time without paying for it; second, I don’t need 3 minutes of air – only a few seconds; third, the bastards got us again. You will agree with me, an unenlightened attitude.

Incensed, I went to several other gas stations and found the same was true at each one. So I decided not to fill up my tire that day. Naturally, I knew that an issue was up. It nagged at me for several days. To make a long story short, I was eventually willing to resolve my issue (I can be stubborn) and let it go. I still wanted free air, but there was no emotional charge on it any more.

Soon after that, I stopped at the air pump of a grocery store where I had been shopping, now willing to pay. I got in line behind a man who was just finishing up with his tire. As he pulled away and I pulled up at the pump, the man stopped his car and got out. I was surprised, because it was a cold, rainy day. As he approached me, he said, “There’s plenty of air left. You can have the rest of mine.” Not only that, he filled the tire for me. Wow. Needless to say, I thanked him profusely. In addition to getting the air for free, I loved the chivalry of this classy man.

It was a small thing, but it made my day.

What about you? Want to join me in my project? It would be fun to share experiences. How is the Law of Attraction working in your life? Just tell us in the comments section. If enough people respond, I’ll create a blog post just for our comments.

Your Inner Self – The Engine that Drives You

The most fascinating thing I find about people is that, even if they are not interested or are not aware of their deeper spiritual life, they are always trying to express it. We come into this life on kind of an automatic pilot that, if we listen to it and allow it to lead us, will help us manifest the life we most deeply desire. Numerology is one way to reveal that automatic pilot within us.

Your Inner Self is one of the core qualities in your spiritual makeup and is derived from the vowels in your birth name. It is the quality that drives you, that motivates you, and that permeates every facet of your awareness. It influences your perception and everything you do. It is so much a part of you that you may not be aware of it.

Some numerologists say that your Inner Self represents your greatest desire; that which you strive to accomplish in everything you do. I’d say that’s a pretty accurate description.

Finding Your Inner Self Number

To calculate your Inner Self number, you will need to use the Chaldean Conversion Code, below.

Chaldean Conversion Code


















































Print your birth name on a piece of paper. Next, place the number that corresponds to each vowel above that vowel in your name. Add all the numbers above the vowels in your first name together and write the sum above those numbers.

Now reduce that sum to a single digit, if necessary, and write it above the first sum. Do the same thing with your middle and last names. If you have a suffix like Junior or III after your name, calculate that in the same way. Spell out Junior.

Finally, add all the single-digit sums above each name together and reduce that sum to a single digit unless it is 11, 22, or 33, which are master numbers. Now you have your Inner Self number.

Brief Interpretations of the Inner Self Number

You will notice that there are positive and negative aspects to each number.

1          You want independence, you like action and accomplishment, and you are unique, creative, not one of the crowd. You are loyal and fair. You like to start things, but often get bored before you finish them. You can be impatient, bossy, arrogant, conceited, critical, selfish, and outspoken.

2          Your greatest desire is for peace and harmony. You are thoughtful, loving, devoted, and loyal; you love the comfort of a nice, soft chair and camaraderie with friends and loved ones. You tend to let people run over you because you crave peace at any price. You don’t tell people what you want if you think it might displease them. You tend to take everything personally.

3          You love to express yourself through speaking, writing, or acting. You love to be happy and love to make other people happy. You are an optimist and, if you worry, it’s not for long. You can be a drama king/queen. You are so versatile, you can end up scattering your energy in all directions with your fingers in too many pies.

4          You are a builder, and your greatest desire is for structure, steadiness, and routine. You are practical, analytical, reliable, orderly, dependable, and methodical. You can be inflexible, stubborn, a perfectionist, impatient with those you perceive as undisciplined or disorganized.

5          Your greatest desire is for freedom, and you avoid routine. You like variety, adventure, travel, new places, and new faces. You can be stubborn when you perceive others trying to limit your freedom. Excess of all kinds is a stumbling block for you.

6          Your greatest desire is to have love, justice, and harmony in the world. Home, family, and community are vital to you. You tend to become emotionally involved in other people’s troubles, worrying about them and creating stress for yourself.

7          You are curious and seek knowledge. You love mystery, and seek to understand the unknown whether in the field of science or metaphysics. You can be high strung and hard to get along with because you are sensitive to everything around you. You need to make time to be alone and decompress.

8          You love power, material possessions, and the feeling of accomplishment. You are a born leader, and you thrive in the director’s chair. You can be impatient, a tyrant, and a dictator when things don’t go your way.

9          Love for humanity drives you. You dream of helping mankind in a big way. You are the universal big sister or big brother. You can be impractical and indecisive.

11        You are inspired by the spiritual, but are not necessarily religious; you love to explore the unseen. You are idealistic and see the world full of beauty and infinite potential. You may love ideals more than people. You can be stubborn, hasty, and domineering.

22        You are driven by making dreams come true. You have high ideals with one foot in the physical and one in the spiritual world. You thrive on converting ideas into practical reality. Your desire for perfection can alienate people. You are susceptible to the down side of the number 4.

33        Love and service drive you. You desire that everyone know how magnificent they are. You can see the good in everyone, no matter what others may say or think. You tend to sacrifice yourself for others, creating difficulty in your own life.

When you are expressing a negative aspect of a number, it means that you are confused, not that you are bad or somehow lacking. You can use your negative expression as information telling you that you are treating yourself poorly in some way. It is an indication that it’s time to get back in balance.

This is a long post, but I hope it has been helpful to you. I welcome your questions and comments.

How to Have Foolproof Communication with Your Spiritual Helpers

Animated dove with olive branch
Image via Wikipedia

Last time, I told the story of how my guardian angels helped me quit smoking. They have always guided me toward the light. They have offered insightful and inspiring guidance on the most mundane matters and on the most difficult times I have faced. They celebrate the good times with me, too.

Today I want to share some ways I have learned to receive clear communication and how I have learned to know the difference between my spirit guides and my own thoughts.

If what I share today makes sense to you, use it. If not, put it on a shelf for later consideration or let it go. We all make the right choices at the right time.

I like to call them my guardian angels. Choose the name you prefer to call yours (spiritual helpers, board of directors, team, etc.) They don’t care what we call them, they just want to communicate.

Who Are They?

Your spiritual helpers are experts you have contracted with to accompany you through life. They have lived through every experience in your life and learned the lessons you have chosen this lifetime. Some say that you have known these souls in past lifetimes. Their purpose is to guide us, not to tell us what to do.

Getting in Tune

In order to communicate with them, you need to raise your vibration to their level. The first step is to clear your energy. I’m sure many of you have effective ways to do that. I’ll share again a  technique I use that you may want to adopt. It is simple, quick, and effective.

Stand or sit comfortably (you will be able to do this on the fly, as well, once you get the hang of it). Mentally say, “I invoke the light of the Christ within (or your name for the Creator), I’m a clear and perfect channel, light is my guide.” At the same time, visualize a point of white light in your solar plexus. Allow it to get bigger and bigger until it fills your body and envelops you in a bubble of white light.

Gently repeat the mantra and visualize the light until you feel goose bumps, chills, or a tingling sensation on your skin. This is the indication that you are on your guides’ wavelength and are close enough to feel the higher charge of electro-magnetic energy that emanates from them. When your energy meets their energy it causes these physical sensations.

It is helpful for some to add a physical action to this process. Rub your hands together to charge up your energy. As you repeat the mantra, pass your hands over the top of your head and down the back of your neck. Give them a little shake and pass them over your forehead and down the sides of your face. Shake your hands again and repeat the process as often as necessary.

How to Ask Questions

Let’s talk about yes-no questions first. It’s important to phrase the question in such a way that your helpers can offer an opinion or suggestion. Don’t ask if you should do something; they will not respond because they won’t tell you what to do. Ask their opinion, such as, “In your opinion, is it in the best interest of all concerned for me to … ?” Or, “Is it in my best interest to … ?” Or, “I have the impression that … . In your opinion, is this an accurate impression?”

For more detail, you can ask for an answer through one of your spiritual gifts; a picture, a feeling, or words. (See my posts on the four spiritual gifts). Simply stay relaxed and wait for the impression. This will take practice. Be patient with yourself. Stay tuned in to your body and make sure you can feel their presence in one of the ways mentioned above. If you lose contact, simply perform the clearing process again.

Establishing Your Signals, Asking the Question, and Verifying the Answer

You will need to be standing for this. Place your feet about 12” apart and perform the clearing process until you can feel the presence of your spiritual helpers. Your body will become a pendulum of sorts. You will be receiving “Yes” and “No” answers through the swaying of your body. You can close your eyes through this process or keep them open, whatever is most comfortable for you.

Establish your signals. Gently sway front to back an inch or two and say, “I want this to mean ‘yes’.” Now move your body left to right a couple of inches and say, “I want this to mean ‘no’.” Now center your body, make sure you are clear, and say, “Give me a ‘yes’.” Allow your body to be moved. Ask for a ‘no’ in the same way. Practice until you feel comfortable with the process. You only need to do this once.

Ask your question according to the directions above. To verify the answer to a question, relax and ask if the answer came from them. “Did that answer come from you?” You will feel your body sway in one direction or another. Then ask, “Did that answer come from me?” You will feel your body sway in the opposite direction if you are still clear.

Always verify your answers.

Respect the Process

This is an advanced communication technique. You are responsible to get and stay clear all through the process. If you fail to keep your energy tuned in to your guidance, you will get answers from entities who are confused. Then you will become confused. Spiritual practice requires discipline. It’s up to you to maintain the clarity that is necessary for success with this technique.

Meanwhile, congratulations! Your spiritual helpers are happy to be in closer contact with you.

Your Life Purpose Number

Image via Wikipedia

Your Life Purpose number appears at the top of your Chaldean Soul Chart. It shows you the main thrust of your life. Your Life Purpose number is like an overlay that influences all the other numbers in your chart. Its vibration permeates every part of your life. It is the main contributor to your personality type, it reflects the deep longings of your soul, and it is the spontaneous and automatic expression of yourSelf. You automatically express the qualities of this number in everything you do.

Your Life Purpose number is derived from all the letters of the name that appears on your birth certificate. Whether it is spelled correctly or not, this is the name you use to calculate your Life Purpose number.

The interpretation of your Life Purpose number must include the influences of the other numbers in the Core Qualities section of your Chaldean Soul Chart. Each number has its own influence, and all the numbers combine in the unique vibration that is you. It’s like a soup. Even though you can taste the individual ingredients, the combination of those ingredients makes the overall flavor of the soup.

Some people have the ability to trust their intuition and follow their purpose from the day they are born. They are usually supported in this by family, friends, and other influences. These are the people, like Steve Jobs, who always seem to be in the right place at the right time, who are passionate about their focus in life, and who always accomplish their goals. They work hard, they love what they do, and when they meet with a challenge, they never waiver in their purpose. They never give up.

Many people lack this level of focus. Perhaps they lack the self trust to follow their intuition, to listen to their feelings. Perhaps they lack the support they need to ignite the fire of fulfillment. Perhaps part of their purpose is to find their way without much outside help. Perhaps it has never occurred to them that they have a specific purpose in life.

These are the people who can benefit from learning to calculate and interpret their Chaldean Soul Chart. If your experience is more like this, your chart can give you the sense of direction and possibility you are looking for. Your chart confirms what you already know and crystallizes your inner knowing into a clear and simple form you can understand. It’s the how-to book from your soul.

If you are searching for something more in life, I invite you to get my book and give numerology a try. If you are searching for a way to help your children become the best they can be, calculate their Chaldean Soul Charts and create an environment that will support their life purpose. Imagine what life would be like if everyone in your family were acting in support of their own and everyone else’s purpose. Imagine how numerology could help each one understand the other.

Click the Select Authors image on the right and sample my book, “You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology.” I would love to hear from those of you who buy it and use it. Let me know what your experience is by emailing me at borntosucceed.go@gmail.com or by commenting on this post.

What Makes You Happy?

What if, as you lay on your death bed, you realized your goal in life was to be happy? At this point in your life, would you consider yourself on the path to fulfilling that goal?

Are you waiting until retirement to have a happy life? Do you think you are too old to have a happy life? Do you think having a happy life is a selfish goal? Are other people or circumstances preventing you from enjoying life?

If so, I invite you to consider that you don’t know your own strength. If you knew yourself as I know you, you would already be living a happy and exciting life. As a numerologist, I know you have the power to create the life you’ve always wanted. I’ve seen it in every chart I have ever done. You are no exception.

We were all born to succeed, and we all deserve to succeed. By creating a fulfilling life, we are making it easier for others to be successful, too. I know this is not the mindset most of us grew up with. We were taught to do what we were told, to conform to the wishes of others, to settle for less.

But we are in a new time now where the old paradigms no longer serve us. We are realizing that true success is in knowing who we are and following our purpose. Steve Jobs summed it up as well as anyone: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”*

Now, more than ever, it’s time to look inside for answers. A positive step in that direction might be to take a look at my book, “You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology,” and decide for yourself whether it can help you. You can sample it by clicking the “Select Authors” image on the right. The book will show you how numerology works and teach you how to use numerology to discover your hidden powers of creation. It will show you how to help your children grow up to fulfill their purpose and make the world a better place just by being themselves.

Each of us is in charge of his/her life. You are the power behind your success. You deserve the best. Once you decide to be true to yourself, you will attract all the help you need to create the life you’ve always wanted.

So, what makes you happy? What are you waiting for?

Numerology – Pinnacles of Success

Arizona's highest Summit - Mount Humphreys - F...

I thought it would be nice to talk about the components of a Chaldean Soul Chart to give you more of a feel for what it’s all about.

The definition of “pinnacle” on Dictionary.com is:

1. a lofty peak.

2. the highest or culminating point, as of success, power, fame, etc.: the pinnacle of one’s career.

3. any pointed, towering part or formation, as of rock.

Synonyms: peak – top – summit – acme – apex – vertex – zenith.

A pinnacle represents the highest you can go. You can’t go any higher. It’s the top of the mountain. It is reached by putting forth effort, taking action, having commitment, determination, discipline, inspiration, vision, and purpose.

That’s exactly what a pinnacle in numerology is, except it’s about reaching the pinnacle of personal achievement according to your life plan (which could include mountain climbing). It sounds like a lot of hard work; however, on one level it takes no effort at all, just the ability to trust yourself and follow your instincts. After that, it’s inspired action.

Pinnacles appear in the “Cycles” section of your Chaldean Soul Chart and represent periods in which you attract certain types of experience. There are 4 cycles. The duration of the first cycle varies according to your birth date, the 2nd and 3rd are each 9 years long, and the 4th and final one lasts for the remainder of life. Your age determines the pinnacle you are experiencing now.

These periods can be compared to paths up the slopes of your personal mountain. During these periods, you attract the specific kind of experiences that will help you fulfill your purpose. It’s not a matter of being forced. On the contrary, if you follow your path it seems to unfold automatically, effortlessly. You experience freedom and you open yourself to new possibilities.

Following your pinnacles is like being encouraged in a certain direction with no limitations. Your pinnacles guide you on a journey that gradually and safely unfolds your talents and capabilities. It’s resistance that produces struggle and uncertainty.

You always have a choice whether to take this journey or not. The great thing is that, on a soul level, you designed this plan to fit your every need . It can be an exciting journey if you allow your heart to open to its adventures.

Next are brief interpretations of the 12 pinnacles, 4 of which are present in your life plan. Details of the way they are expressed in your plan would depend on the numbers in your core qualities. Can you recognize your pinnacles?

In a 1 pinnacle you are engaged in activities that make you stand out from the crowd. The number 1 brings opportunities to promote new ideas and new ways of doing anything, depending on your core qualities. You are ahead of the pack. You are literally the “1” who is pioneering a new way.

During a 2 pinnacle, you are drawn to team activities and attract experiences involving cooperation and partnerships. You are able to see both sides of a situation, and may be involved in diplomacy. Many people make good marriages during a 2 pinnacle. Intuition is magnified, and you are sensitive to the needs of others.

A 3 pinnacle involves self expression. It can manifest in a variety of ways; through the visual arts, music, dancing, singing, and acting, or through speaking and writing. It can manifest on various levels, from taking lessons for fun to refining your talents on a professional level. Entertainment is important now whether it’s used as a business enhancer or it’s purely social.

Building is the chief influence during a 4 pinnacle, from creating more efficient systems to building skyscrapers. Experiences involving detail, discipline, orderliness, and step-by-step progression enhance your life plan and enable you to flourish. You are building a firm foundation for the future.

During a 5 pinnacle your experiences center around freedom and activity. You experience change (sometimes unexpected), adventure, travel, and expansion. It’s time to let go of the old and welcome the new. You need to be adaptable and flexible to adjust to new situations.

The 6 pinnacle brings experiences involving relationships in the home, the family, and the community. It features responsibility, balance, and helping others. Some people get married or divorced in this cycle. Your experiences focus on creativity, the arts, or healing. Your home is important as a place of refuge and a welcoming environment for family and friends.

During a 7 pinnacle, you experience a desire to find the truth beneath the surface – to solve the mystery behind the question. You are introspective. It’s a good time for  spiritual housecleaning. You may be studying, probing the unknown, becoming an expert in your field. You enjoy being alone and need time to yourself to unwind at the end of each day.

The 8 pinnacle is about the physical world; leadership, power, possessions, and money. Your experiences will develop your talent for organization and management. You may receive a promotion at work. You may be responsible for other people’s money and possessions. Your experiences will involve responsibility, action, and accomplishment. You are the leader of the pack.

The 9 pinnacle involves humanitarian activities. You love people and welcome all types into your circle. Your experiences could include inventing a life-saving product, entering or expanding a healing practice, developing or joining a world-wide service organization, or volunteering in a local service organization. In any case, your circle of friends and associates widens during this cycle.

In the 11 pinnacle you are inspired to go beyond conventional limits. Independence, excitement, and innovation are featured. It’s a period of high energy. Activities can be focused on the physical or spiritual realms. On the physical plane, electrical innovations in science and engineering, or air-related activities such as aviation or weather could be featured; spiritually, metaphysical studies and teaching, psychic reading, positive psychology, or spiritual psychology might be the focus. Whatever the focus, the emphasis is on inspiration and new approaches.

While the 11 pinnacle focuses on the dream, the 22 pinnacle creates practical ways to make the dream come true. This is a time of building and accomplishment on a large scale. This period can also involve international diplomacy, depending on the numbers of your core qualities. You might be working on a project in your home town that affects other countries. Or you could become a world traveler as a diplomat, or providing basic services to third-world cultures.

The 33 pinnacle is a period of communication on a large scale. You might have opportunities to work in national or international media, you may enter politics, or you may be the one in your neighborhood whom everyone comes to for comfort, solace, and good entertainment. The emphasis is on nurturing, which could also manifest in activities such as any of the arts, performing, or the healing arts.

Your pinnacles provide a picture of your past, present, and future. The benefit of looking at your past gives you the opportunity to learn from it and to consciously bring its strength into the present with you. Of course, your present moment is the most important one in your life. And the ability to see your future gives you the opportunity to prepare for it.

Your opportunity, should you decide to accept it, is to enjoy the ride. Your cycles benefit you if you act within them. Think of pinnacles as recipes. All the ingredients are present, but you have to put them together and cook them to get the desired result.

My Amazing Clairvoyant Experience

Image by Adnan Yahya via Flickr

This experience is so astounding to me I have to share it with you.

There is a park near my house that I like to walk in, so I go there often. During one of these walks a few months ago I saw giant machines rapaciously tearing out large quantities of trees and foliage. Needless to say, I was upset, so I asked some of the operators what was going on. They told me they were clearing land for more ball fields. What could I say? I dealt with my upset and accepted the inevitable.

On a visit to the park three weeks ago, I saw that more trees and foliage had been removed. This time I called our City Council. I was told that the ball fields were going to be re-graded, the walking path would be paved, and drainage would be installed. To accomplish all this they had to remove more trees and foliage. They also were removing dead and diseased trees. I was assured they would replace some trees that had been removed, and no more trees or foliage would be taken out. I felt better now that I had the big picture.

Yesterday while walking in my little park, I discovered four new, beautiful trees had been planted in a group beside the walking path. They looked about half grown; three about 15 feet tall and one about 10 feet tall. There was fresh mulch carefully distributed around each one, and each had four support lines attached at the base of its lower branches and anchored in the ground. I was delighted to see them and admired the lovely way they had been placed and how healthy they looked.

On these walks, I turn around at the end of the path and go back the way I came. As I was walking back this time, I thought about those trees and could hardly wait to see them again. I rounded a bend in the path and began to look for those beautiful trees, but there was some distance to go before they would be visible. As I walked, I thought about how surprised and pleased I was that the Parks Department had begun planting so soon.

But I had a surprise coming. When I finally got to the spot where the trees were, they weren’t there! There was nothing but empty space.

I was stunned. At first I didn’t believe what I was (not) seeing, but then I realized I had just had my first clairvoyant experience outside my head. That is, up to now, all my visions had been in my mind. Clairvoyance is not my primary means of perception, and until that moment I had always seen visions in my mind with my eyes closed.

That vision of those trees was so clear it seemed I could have reached out and touched them. I had looked up and seen their leaves playing in the breeze. When I fully grasped what had happened, I felt so elated. I had huge amounts of energy and I was smiling for the rest of the day. I am immensely grateful for that experience. Now I know what it’s like to see as clairvoyants see.

Then there are the messages behind the vision. One is a demonstration and reassurance of how close spirit is to me. The day before in meditation I had declared myself open to more possibilities with my psychic perception. I asked and I received.

Another message could be that some day I may see those same trees in that same place, this time in the physical. If this happens, I will definitely let you know.

If you have any impressions about the meaning of this vision, please let me know.

Every time I think about that experience I get excited all over again. Wonderful things can happen when you are not expecting them.

Please leave comments. I would love to know what your experiences are with psychic perception and what questions you may have, too.

Speaking With Family Members Who Have Died

What would you want to talk about?

my tree at dusk

Actually, I have spoken to several family members who have died. But the conversations weren’t about their earthly lives. More about that later.

I’d like to know more about my father’s life because he was an interesting person and a very classy man. I would like to sit down with my aunts and get all the family gossip. The wild one and my mother were good friends in high school, and my favorite aunt, who was the oldest, told me some tales about those two before she died.

Actually, I had a conversation with my favorite aunt several months (maybe a year) after she died. She came to see me and made her presence known by trying to get into my body.

As I was going about some mundane business one day, the back of my neck began to tingle and I felt dizzy. At first I was startled, but after I cleared my energy I understood what was happening.

Like many who pass on, my aunt had been visiting people she knew when she was present on the earth plane. She seemed confused and frustrated because she didn’t have a body any more. And she didn’t like my apartment at all. She wanted to be in her house, which she loved.

We had a conversation about her present state and the possibilities that were open to her, and she agreed to go with her spirit guides into the light. Two other souls were with her, who may have been my wild aunt and my mother. They went into the light with her, and it was more important to me to facilitate that than to take time to verify who they were. Besides, Auntie was in a hurry, and I wasn’t about to hold her up.

My mother, my wild aunt, and my grandfather have come to me on different occasions, probably because they somehow knew I could help them. I’ve had unique contact experiences with my mother and father, and will write about them another time.

I’m glad I was with my loved ones once more before they went on and that I was able to help them when they asked for it.
