karen blog photoTune in to the next Angel Quest Radio Show on on August 2 at 1:05pm Eastern time.

The show will be about the Law of Attraction and how focusing on positive aspects can help during the grieving process.  We’ll be discussing the importance of concentrating on how your loved ones lived, not how they died, and the blessings all around you.

My guest during the second part of the show will be Josie Varga.

Despite having both cerebral palsy and bilateral hearing loss, she considers herself very fortunate, as she prefers to live her life focusing on the positive. Josie does not consider herself disabled, and never will.  Her disability, she believes, is her strength, not her weakness.

Discovering her passion for writing as a little girl growing up in Elizabeth, New Jersey, she went on to earn a degree in journalism and worked her way up to Director of Communications and Editor for an international trade association where she met and interviewed celebrities, authors, speakers, sport personalities and others.  Josie later became a successful communications consultant while authoring her first book, Footprints in the Sand:  A Disabled Woman’s Inspiring Journey to Happiness.  Since then, she has become a motivational speaker, encouraging audiences to strive to overcome and sharing the importance of having a positive mental attitude in life.

Her second book, Visits from Heaven is a compilation of remarkable experiences by ordinary people who have been communicated with in some way by loved ones who have passed on. Her next book, Visits to Heaven, which can be considered a sequel to Visits from Heaven, focuses on near-death experiences.

Make Up Your Mind to be Happy: 105 Simple Tips is yet another non-fiction work of Josie’s. It combines simple, yet effective happiness “tips” with contributions from several renowned experts in the field. “Divine Visits,” Josie’s fifth title and the second follow-up to her best-selling book, Visits from Heaven, delivers proof of miracles and divine encounters.

A creative thinker, Josie holds patents for two inventions.  Josie has also written treatments for a documentary version of Visits From Heaven as well as several new reality television shows, one of which is now being considered by producers in New York City and Los Angeles, California.

It’s going to be a great show!  So tune in on August 2 on (just press “listen live”) at 1:05pm Eastern time.  Many blessings to you!


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 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!
