You don’t need to be a medium to connect meaningfully with your deceased loved ones and angels; they’re trying to communicate with you all the time! And, they try in many different ways, but very often through signs. This month, keep an eye out for words that appear to you. Whether they are on billboards you notice, bumper stickers on cars that cut you off, a book that flips open to a certain page, or even a song that comes on just when you turn on the radio, the other side puts these words in front of you for a reason.
One of my clients, now passed, is an expert at sending these types of messages. If you’ve read my first book The Rainbow Follows the Storm, you already know about Stormy; but for those of you who haven’t, here’s her story. I met Stormy near the end of her life, and even though she had been ill with diabetes for a long time, she was one of those rare people with incredible personal energy and strength of spirit. Before her passing, she promised me that she would contact me to let me know she was okay – and she has been, to this day. Stormy turns stereos on and even broadcasts certain songs, like “the blind can see” (her eyesight had been very bad near the end, and she wanted to tell me she could see again). At the very end of her life, Stormy decided she wanted to rename herself “Rainbow,” and on the anniversary of her death, I found a gift from another client in my mailbox. The gift was a basket of angel cards with beautiful sayings on them, and as I opened the plastic wrap, one card fell out of my hand and drifted to the floor. It said “Guardian angel, help me remember: The rainbow follows the storm.”
Signs from your loved ones come in many forms, and the more you learn to recognize them, the more you and your passed loved ones will find the peace that comes with knowing that love lives on.
Many Blessings to you!

We all have the ability to connect with angels and loved ones who have passed, and they are out there just waiting for us to acknowledge them. Angels give us signs all the time letting us know that they’re around us, but we have to be alert and pay attention to recognize them. One of the funniest ways they choose to get our attention is by playing with electricity.
Hey, who turned off the lights? Or turned them on…
Last week, I met with a woman named Dorothy to connect with her husband who had passed. In the reading, her husband said he had been the one opening and closing her garage door. Dorothy could hardly believe it, “At 2 a.m. sometimes, my garage door opens – that’s him?” It sure was! And he wasn’t finished. Over the weekend, I had my boyfriend over at my house, and I heard my own garage door open by itself. I didn’t know how that happened. Then Dorothy’s husband came to me when I was meditating a few days later and told me he was the one who had done that as well. I called Dorothy to tell her about my unexpected visit from him, and she was amazed!
I really don’t know how angels manipulate electricity, but they do. They switch lights and televisions off and on, and make light bulbs flicker. Have you ever turned on the radio to the exact song you needed to hear? Those are angels – or your deceased loved ones – reaching out to you to say “hello,” “I’m here,” “I’m well.” If they’re not getting your attention, they’ll try any means to let you know they’re around you!
Maybe it’s because angels and loved ones are energy themselves. We are energy, and the energy of who we are continues after we die. That energy doesn’t begin or end – it just changes form. And, energy attracts and affects other energy – whether it’s emotional, spiritual, or PG&E.
So the next time your kitchen light flickers, it might be time to change the bulb, or it might be time to say hello to someone you haven’t seen in a while.
Many blessings to you!

After we die, we go through a “life review” where we are able to see how we have affected others – through their eyes. We’ll see the “bigger picture” of how our actions have influenced all those in our paths.
Even more importantly, we’ll also be able to see “the bigger perspective” of how we have treated ourselves as well. Unfortunately, it is only at this point that we will realize we should have loved ourselves more and treated ourselves with the respect that we truly deserved.
But you know what? You don’t have to wait until you die to go through your life review to grasp the idea that you should take better care of yourself. You can begin treating yourself with the respect you deserve right now!
Go within and see if you are paying attention to your emotional needs. Are you respecting your right to pursue happiness? Are you going after your soul’s passions? Are you following your dreams? Do you have loving relationships? Are you in a job that you love? Are you satisfied with your living arrangements? The list can go on and on.
The most important thing to do is to make sure all of your needs are met. No one else is going to do it for you! Follow your passions. Go after those dreams. Don’t expect anything but the best in all your relationships – and that includes your relationship with yourself!
After you leave this world, you will see the beautiful, magnificent light that you are! Don’t wait until it’s too late to understand this wonderful fact! Shine your amazing spotlight at all times – right here and right now!
Many blessings to you!

Every day, each one of us is exposed to a great deal of external “noise.” And much of this noise takes the form of advice –the TV, newspapers and magazines expressing different issues, and friends or acquaintances’ different ideas. There is nothing wrong with external opinions—sometimes there is a lot we can learn from the wisdom of others.
But in today’s culture, there is so much going on “out there” that many of us forget to listen to our own intuition. And when we stop listening to ourselves and trusting our inner voice, we are prone to making decisions that take us out of our true self and force us to conform to the opinions of others.
This may sound like a bold statement, but it’s true: if you can train yourself to trust your own intuition, you are going to be happier, more fulfilled, and more at peace. The truth is that those around you, even if they have the best of intentions, simply can’t know what’s best for you in the way that your own intuition does. Your intuition is God within you – speaking to you about what is right for you!
So listen to your intuition! Listen to it in big matters, like important life decisions. Listen to it in smaller matters, like day-to-day decisions or relationships. Stay true to your inner self.
Again — while there is often wisdom to be found in listening to others, it is up to you to be discerning… to separate your inner knowingness from the noise around you. And when your intuition is telling you something different from those around you, learn to trust your soul, the God within you, and always stay true to yourself.
Many blessings to you!

How can we find more peace and joy in our everyday lives? Most people are so focused on what they think are the “big” things in their lives – their jobs, classes they take, paying their bills, etc.- that they forget to slow down, smell the roses, and make the most out of each day. As I often tell my friends and clients, one of the best ways to enrich your daily life is very simple: begin each day by counting your blessings.
I mean that literally. Make a commitment to yourself that the first thing you’ll do each day when you get up is identify 10 blessings in your life. They can be little things, like “I’m thankful for the bed I’m sleeping in” or bigger things like, “I’m thankful I am healthy.” There are no rules—the point is to just take the time to think about the good things in your life.
The beauty of this exercise is that you will begin each day with the right mindset. Instead of spending your day looking for things to complain about, you will spend it looking at the positives. This will help you to appreciate the beam of sunlight within the storm.
Sure, there will be days when life will be tough. But even on the worst days, I assure you that you’ll be able to find plenty of things to appreciate. And the best part is that when you appreciate all that you have and look for the blessings around you, you’ll find that even more great things will come to you!
As the Law of Attraction says, “You get what you think about most of the time.” SO start the day off right. When you wake up in the morning, count your blessings! You will see – your whole day will truly be better – just because you took the time to smell the roses!
Many blessings to you!

As 2012 winds down, many of us are focused on the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Shopping at the mall, preparing to travel for the holidays, sending out cards in the mail… it is a busy time of year to say the least!
But before we know it, the holidays will come and go. And then comes an exciting opportunity—the dawning of the New Year!
The New Year symbolizes opportunity and potential. It’s like a field covered in a fresh, pure snow… or the blank canvas of an artist.
Each of us has the opportunity to create our own future and achieve our own dreams next year. And that is why this period of time, right now, is so important. It’s our chance to identify some of our dreams and goals for the year to come.
Today, I would like to challenge you to add a very important “resolution” to your list:
Resolve to create peace in all your relationships in 2013.
Make 2013 the year that you put aside anger, conflict and hostility. Make 2013 the year that you are willing to forgive and to let go… and to breathe life back into relationships that have grown cold or weak.
It won’t be easy, because we humans are creatures of habit. We may be used to holding grudges and battling for what we think is fair. In many cases, we will have to release these old habits in order to heal relationships that have grown hostile.
And though it will be difficult at times, I promise you that it is worth the effort! The sweetness of experiencing peace all around you is amazing. The harmony and the positive energy that you’ll experience through close, healthy relationships will be rejuvenating.
So make it your goal in 2013 to seek peace in all of your relationships. Breathe deeply and let go of hostility and anger, and usher in new feelings of peace and love.
Many blessing to you as you strive to make 2013 your most peaceful year yet!

So many lives were impacted when Hurricane Sandy hit the northeast a few weeks ago. Besides the considerable damage to homes and infrastructure, many found themselves without electricity, heat, and other basic necessities of life. While I was fortunate to avoid the worst of the storm, as a New Jersey resident I also lost power for several days.
But it is amazing what such a disaster can do to help change our perspective and realize how blessed we really are. I, along with so many others, was very upset to have been without electricity and other necessities of life. But then I began to think about the countless numbers of people around the globe who lack access to electricity every day. For them, a day without electricity is normal.
And in addition to electricity, there are so many things that we have been blessed with. Clean water—right from our faucets! Can you imagine what a miracle this would be to someone who is used to walking miles each day to draw water from a well? And this water is often dirty and even dangerous.
It really got me thinking about how fortunate we really are. Please take a few moments right now to focus on the blessings life has given you. Start with the basics like food, water, warmth, shelter, and electricity. Then think about security, access to transportation, and the right to live in freedom. Think about your relationships with family and friends, or with other loved ones, and your health.
We have so much to be thankful for, and yet most of the time we think about what we don’t have or what we think we NEED. If the power ever goes out again, let’s remember the power that is always within us – and be grateful for the amazing blessings that we already have in our lives.”

Everyone wants peace on earth, but too many of us feel powerless to actually do anything about it. The truth is that we all can be part of bringing peace on earth. We all have the power to impact others around us, influencing them with our positive energy and thoughts.
First, it is important to understand that bringing peace to the world always begins with experiencing peace within yourself. Take a moment and look deep inside your soul. Are you holding onto anger, fear, or unhappiness? If so, make a conscious decision to release that negativity and fill the void with positive thoughts and energy. Daily meditation and prayer would be most beneficial in helping you through this process.
You don’t have to wait for others to bring peace to the world. Start creating peace in your world. And then, your positive energy will begin the ripple affect— washing away the negativity, fear, and anger of all those in your path.
Yes, you have the ability not only to create peace for yourself, but to share it with the world around you as well. You have the ability to make this world a better place. And how awesome is that?
May peace prevail on earth! Many blessings to you!

Do you ever feel that you don’t have enough control over your life? That life’s circumstances force you to spend most of your time and energy just “getting by”? This could mean working at a job you don’t like just so you can pay the bills, staying in destructive relationships, or any other number of circumstances that seem to trap you into a lifestyle that doesn’t truly represent your passions and priorities.
Most of us identifies with this scenario to some degree. But here is an important truth: you CAN determine what your focus is. And by shifting your focus to what you want instead of “what is,” you truly can change your life for the better.
The key to attaining whatever you want to in life is to “feel” and “see” everything exactly as you want – as if it’s already here. When you let go of any negative thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back from achieving what you want, you will be able to make space for what you want instead.
So, remember to focus on all the blessings in your life. Visualize everything as you want them to be—whether it’s your job, your health, your relationships, or anything else. Fantasize on all your dreams coming true…….and then just watch what happens!
Many blessings to you!

Many people don’t have to look very far to identify a difficult circumstance in their lives. For some, it may be financial hardship. They may be unemployed—or stuck in a job they don’t like. Others may have a hard time managing relationships with friends and family who are difficult. Still others may be battling a tough living situation or some other type of chaos. And because of those reasons, most people believe, it is impossible for them to achieve inner peace.
But here is the truth: inner peace does not result from your circumstances; it will come from your perceptions of them. Your circumstances don’t have to be perfect in order for you to feel happy and peaceful inside.
In other words, inner peace isn’t about money. It’s not about owning a great home or car. It’s not about your job. It’s not about having the latest clothing. It’s not even about friends and family. These things are all wonderful, but plenty of people have all of them—and still remain unhappy.
Some people have a strong desire to “keep up with the Jones’.” They constantly tell themselves that they’ll be happy… as soon as they get that promotion, or that new house, or a spouse, or better friends, or something else.
But it’s never enough.
So here is my best advice. Don’t compare your circumstances to those around you. Instead, consider everything that you do have, including “simple” things like the ability to draw a breath or read this blog entry, to be a blessing. We are all so fortunate to be here, experiencing this very moment. Learn to savor the blessings that life sends your way, no matter what they may be. Don’t obsess over changing your circumstances. Instead, learn to appreciate them. If you follow this advise, I know your life will change so much for the better. Try it – you will see what I mean.
Many blessings to you!
