Taking Comfort from Near Death Experiences

July 15th, 2014 → 7:36 pm @

karen blog photoFirsthand accounts of near death experiences, like this one from Eos Isabel Yolanda, are further proof that the energy of who we are really does continue to exist after our physical bodies have died. Eos, and hundreds of thousands of others, talk about the tremendous peace and light they’ve encountered when they reached “the other side.” Most of them don’t want to come back because they feel like they are home. When they do come back, it’s because they still have things to do and people to teach and touch with their lives.

“It was the summer of 1985. I was 5 years old and was in the shallow end of the pool.  I saw lots of kids and people playing on water slides on the very far end of the swimming pool, and my vision wasn’t that good, so I walked towards the deeper end of the pool to see more clearly, and that was when my foot slipped and down I went into the deeper end.

I was instantly under water because I didn’t know how to swim. I immediately just started to breathe the water, and I could see; it felt so peaceful. I loved it! I loved the feeling of breathing water! It was just such a serene, fascinating experience. I wasn’t scared at all!

Next thing I knew, someone picked me up out of the water. I didn’t recognize that it was my brother. My mind was at that point where I didn’t know who I was or where I was.  I started to float out of my body. I remember wondering why my mother was just sitting there reading a magazine and didn’t notice what happened. A lifeguard saw my brother and then they put me on the ground and started doing CPR.

Meanwhile, this beautiful tunnel of light in the sky distracted me. The tunnel was like a portal in the sky, but the tunnel itself was full of light with swirls made of clouds. The energy was so calm and serene. I was really drawn to walk into the tunnel and saw three shadowy figures in there. Two were males and one was a female. Somehow I could hear the three voices talking in unison. They looked like people, but they were shadowy and translucent at the same time. They also had facial features.

They kept saying, “Go back! Go back! Go back!” And I said to them, “No I don’t want to. She’s mean. (my mother) I don’t like it there. I love it here.”

And then they replied, “You aren’t done yet! Go back! Go back! Go back!”

So I went back, and next thing you know I woke up in the midst of them loading me into the ambulance where they pronounced me dead!”

It is so comforting to hear about what others have experienced when they were “there” because these stories help us to realize that our loved ones really are in a better place. And when we leave our physical bodies, many years from now, we will be in that better place too.

What Happens to Us When We Die?

June 16th, 2014 → 3:25 pm @

karen blog photoIf you put a bowl of water in the middle of the room and leave it there, it will eventually evaporate. That doesn’t mean the water has disappeared from the face of the planet – quite the opposite! That water is no longer contained by its bowl and is now free to expand.

When people ask me about what happens to us after the body dies, I give them the example of that bowl of water. Energy doesn’t begin, and it doesn’t end. The energy of who we are continues well after it leaves the body. Our personalities also continue on. Loud people are still loud. Funny people are still funny. Our energy still has desires, but after it leaves the body, our energy also gains a tremendous amount of perspective on life.

After leaving their physical bodies, our deceased loved ones are able to finally feel their connection with everything and everyone. Because they are not limited to their physical bodies anymore, they truly are free – with no pain and no more worries. They not only feel peace; they are peace and tranquility.  They are limitless and are finally able to experience their oneness with the Source of this infinite peace.

Gaining Perspective

When the energies of our loved ones are released from their bodies, they are able to see “through God’s eyes.” They can now see the causes and effects of what they did or didn’t do on earth and how their choices and actions have affected all those in their paths. The physical body often makes it difficult for those of us on earth to have empathy for others and true understanding of ourselves; it’s like walking around with blinders on! But when we pass to the other side, we gain the ability to see why we did what we did, and are able to understand more fully what we could have done better.

Spirits are also in a much better position to help their living loved ones and can use their thoughts to gently guide and protect them. Remember, though, if you didn’t listen to your deceased loved ones when they were alive, you shouldn’t listen to them now. Even though they’ve gained perspective, they still have their own unique personalities and ideas of what they feel is important, and those ideas may not resonate with yours. You may want to call upon God and the angels in addition to, or instead of, asking your deceased loved ones for help with personal issues.

Proof About the Afterlife: From Messages They Give

May 19th, 2014 → 3:44 pm @

karen blog photo

As a medium who receives messages from deceased loved ones all the time, I know without a doubt that there is an afterlife. You may ask me how I know for sure.  Well, first of all, deceased loved ones give “without a doubt” proof by the messages they relay. They also love to give us incredible signs to let us know they are around us. One of the most incredible messages I’ve received was from a deceased grandmother to her granddaughter, Kristy.

The first time Kristy and her husband Jon came to see me, I didn’t immediately understand what I was feeling. I felt little energies and interpreted them to be babies who were on the other side. I saw the number four, but I didn’t understand what it meant. When I told them what I was feeling, they said they had lost quadruplets a few months earlier. As I was consoling them, telling them the babies were okay, two more loved ones came through holding the babies; they gave me their names—Tom and Theresa. A smile came over Kristy’s face when she confirmed that Tom and Theresa were her grandparents who had died. Her grandparents had come to make sure Kristy and Jon knew they were with the babies on the other side. After they left, I immediately knew I would be in contact with them again; and we did see each other a few times after that.

About a year later, Kristy had been trying to conceive once more but to no avail, and had been disappointed each month when it didn’t happen. One day, as I was meditating, Kristy’s deceased grandmother came to give me the message that Kristy was pregnant. I immediately called Kristy and asked her if she was expecting a baby. She said she didn’t know and was going to take a pregnancy test to find out.

As I was driving to get lunch that day, a car cut me off. When I glanced at the license plate, it said “2 QUADS.” As always, I don’t believe in coincidences, and I knew this was a sign that two of Kristy’s quadruplets were going to come back to her at this time.

Kristy called me back a few days later and confirmed what I already knew. She was ecstatic and was indeed “in the family way!” She has since given birth to adorable healthy twins, Ryan and Casey. Both parents and babies are doing wonderfully, and I am so thrilled that Kristy and Jon now have the family they’ve always wanted. They are all truly blessed!

When your loved ones pass on, they are still around you, helping and guiding you, aware of events you don’t even know about yet. You just have to be open to receiving the messages in the many ways they send them!

Many blessings to you!


Learn How the Emotional Freedom Technique Can Help You to Heal After the Loss of a Loved One on the Next Angel Quest Radio Show On Saturday, May 3 at 1:05pm Eastern Time

April 28th, 2014 → 7:13 pm @

On the next Angel Quest Radio Show, I’ll be talking about how the Emotional Freedom Technique, or “tapping” can help you to heal your grief. The energy of negative emotions such as fear, grief, anger, jealousy, regret, and so on often gets stuck in certain acupuncture points within your body. If you tap on these acupuncture points while you are experiencing these emotions, the trapped energy will begin to shift. This movement of energy will almost always cause tremendous immediate relief from your emotional, and sometimes even physical pain!
It’s going to be a very informative show, so make sure to tune in on May 3 at 1:05pm Eastern time on www.wrcr.com. Just click on “listen live.”
I’ll be taking callers and giving away free copies of my new book, Your Life After Their Death, so if you’d like to call in to win, comment, or ask questions about the technique, the studio number is: 845-362-0013.


Dream a Little Dream of Me: Receiving Messages From Deceased Loved Ones

April 21st, 2014 → 4:00 pm @

karen blog photoOne of the easiest ways for your deceased loved ones to contact you is in your dreams. You simply need to ask them to come, and they will be there for you. Make sure to also request that they wake you up afterwards, because if you don’t wake up after the dream, you may not be able to remember all of the details.

After you make your request, just be patient and wait. For whatever reason, your friends and family members on the other side may not always be able to enter your dreams immediately after your request. However, they will come when the time is right for the both of you.

Right after my mother passed away, I longed to hear her voice, so I mentally asked her to give me a chance to do so. A few days after my request, I happened to be staying home from work because I wasn’t feeling well. After doing a few things that needed to be done around the house, I went to take a nap. While I was asleep, I dreamed that I was in a crowded place, and then heard my mother’s voice come over the loud speaker, saying, “I have an important announcement! I have an important announcement!” Then there was a pause, and she continued, “I am here, and I’m okay!”

When she was talking, I knew without a doubt that it was really her, and called out, “Mom! Oh, my God! Mom, it’s you! I love you so much! Who are you with?” She responded in a very low voice with a name that I couldn’t hear, so I asked her to turn up the volume and tell me again. She then softly answered, “Nannie.”

“Nannie” is what I called my grandmother, her mother. After she spoke these words, the phone rang and woke me up, so luckily I was able to remember the entire communication. Mom would always make it known when she had something important to say while she was still here on Earth. That’s why I have no doubt that her “important announcement” was coming directly from her. After receiving the wonderful gift of her coming to me in that dream, I woke up and felt as if I’d just won the lottery!

Just a Dream? Or a True Visitation?

When a loved one does come through in a dream, you may be left wondering if it was a real visitation or just a regular dream from your subconscious. Know that when your loved ones come through, it’s always peaceful and you will know that the individual was truly there with you. You’ll also remember the dream in detail for many years to come.

Dreams from your subconscious may be frightening, or create negative emotions. You may dream of how someone suffered or died, or other types of regrets you had about that person. This type of dream is not from your loved one; it’s from your own mind trying to resolve everything that occurred while he or she was alive.

It’s vital to know the difference between a true visitation and your own mind. Otherwise, you may give far much significance to a nightmare than you should, and not enough significance to a wonderful, loving visitation!

Your Deceased Loved Ones Are Here to Help – If You’re Open to It

March 10th, 2014 → 4:40 pm @

karen blog photoYour deceased loved ones are probably already helping you more than you know. They may put the right people in your path, place thoughts in your head with insights on how to accomplish your goals, inform you of things you didn’t know, grant you peace when you need it, help you find lost things, and so much more. Here is what happened during a reading I gave when a loved one came to the rescue to help her daughter find a lost object:

Ardine had lost her engagement ring a year ago, and after frantically checking every place she could think of, she eventually gave up with a heavy heart. On December 12th, 2012 (yes, that’s 12/12/12!) at 12n, Ardine and I had an appointment. Ardine likes to let readings unfold naturally, letting in whoever wants to come through, and usually doesn’t lead with specific questions. But as we were ending our appointment that day, she remembered to ask the question that had been bothering her for months. She began, “I lost my engagement ring about a year ago…” – and I put out my hand for her to stop, because I was already receiving a message. I told Ardine, “Your mom says it’s in the couch with the blanket.”

Here are Ardine’s words explaining what had happened that day:

“Now, I’m sure many households have blankets on their couches. I realize this isn’t a reach. The difference is that I’ve searched the sofa a dozen times over in the past year to no avail. However, I had such a sense of peace and resolve that I was going to find my ring when I got home. When I stood up, Karen gave me a big hug and told me, “When you find your ring, call me.”

My husband was waiting for me outside with a car full of groceries. When I got in the car, he asked me how it went. I just turned to him and said, “Michael, when we get home, I want you to unload the groceries, because I’m going to find my ring.” He was silent, probably thinking for the umpteenth time that I’m off the deep end, but also knowing better than to get me worked up.

When I arrived at home, I went directly to the couch with the green flowered blanket on it. I took off all the cushions, looked at them closely, shook them, and noticed a small rip in one. I then put my finger in there, but felt nothing but lint. I was crouched down while I was doing this, and one of my cats walked by at that moment. I turned to the right, and that’s when I saw my rocker love seat with a small throw over it. Talk about a light bulb going on in that moment! I exclaimed out loud, “Oh, that blanket!” I walked over to the rocker and around it, and saw that it was all in one piece. There were no cushions, and the fabric went from top to bottom, with thick staples keeping it in place through the wood. Although it wasn’t possible that a ring could get in, I just knew I’d find it there.

I have two cats, and over the years they have used this rocker as a scratching post more than a few times. I made a decision and got a pair of scissors, and was set to rip open the fabric on the back of the rocker. My husband, who had been in the kitchen for the past ten minutes, saw me with scissors in hand and stepped in. He told me to calm down and decided that he could pry open a staple or two to create an opening in the fabric. With that done, he turned the rocker on its side and proceeded to shake it and bang it on the floor of the living room. On the second or third shake, out came my engagement ring!”

Ardine called me within minutes to tell me the wonderful news. Not only did she find her ring, but her husband wasn’t a skeptic anymore! I am so glad Ardine didn’t give up when she wasn’t able to find her engagement ring at first, and that she was able to listen to her mom when she guided her to search the correct chair!

So the message for you is this – please remember that your deceased loved ones really are available to help you now in ways they never could before! Ask them for their help and guidance, and they will be there for you!

Many blessings to you!
