Lemonade And Other Things To Be Grateful For.

April 26, 2010

Recent events have  me pondering the concept of turning life’s lemons into lemonade.  As a psychic medium I provide readings to clients either individually, in group/party events or by telephone.  I love helping to make a difference in people’s lives, giving  peace and closure gained by communication with their deceased relatives… evidence that loved ones have not left them, they are never truly alone. Messages guide folks along their path with suggestions and encouragement and most that I see are gracious with their gratitude. I give a lot of myself when channelling in this way and I’m more than happy to do it. Sometimes though, I’m not given the respect that my time and efforts deserve. Thankfully, these occurences are rare. A woman came to me interested in what I do but unsure if she was ready for a reading.  Just prior, while seeing a lovely young lady, I was given the names of two spirits. Since they were unfamiliar to her, I knew they belonged to another of the guests waiting to see me. This happens, where a deceased person is so anxious to speak with their relative, that they jump in on someone else’s reading. I had the feeling the spirits belonged with the woman who was unsure about having a session, so I spoke with her and asked  about the two names. She did know them and excitedly said she would now like a reading. I told her my fee (she hadn’t been on my list of appointments) and proceeded to bring through no less than five relatives with significant messages. In fact, there were so many that wanted to speak, I ended up going way over the allotted time and it was a fantastic reading. I do that sometimes, feeling generosity is a positive energy that comes back to us magnified. Well as they say, no good deed goes unpunished! Because of the extra time given, another client couldn’t  see me, she had to drive a friend home from the event. And I discovered later, when being paid by the organizer, that the woman I’d given the stunning 5-spirit session to… had stiffed me, she hadn’t paid for her appointment! I was rather stunned, not to mention disappointed that someone would do that. If money was a problem I would have discounted my rate to help her.

Another lemon tossed my way left a sour taste in my mouth:  A reading I did for a skeptic that my guides and gut instinct had told me would not go well. As always, they were right. Prior to our appointment this sitter told me a story of meeting two well-known mediums who she was sure were nothing but fakes with a fancy TV show… THAT should have set off my warning bells but instead, I forged ahead. People with negativity produce blocked energy that makes reading them and their spirits  difficult, if not impossible. I did my best, but the messages were just not coming through clearly. Of course she wasted no time poking holes in my ability also. I stopped the reading, accepting no payment. Then a lovely blessing turned my lemons of the day into lemonade: my deceased mom sent a sign after my last reading of the day, which went extremely well, all things considered. As I was packing up to leave, a strong, clear smell of roses suddenly wafted around me… my mom’s favourite flower. There had been no scent in the room prior to this. She wanted to send me a little support and love. Thanks mom.

Today, on my walk along a tree-lined path there was a further reminder about gratitude… a man rode by me with his dog; not on a bike, but in a wheelchair-type scooter, faithful companion running alongside. Many folks on this route fail to scoop after their pets, but this gentleman, wheelchair and all, managed to clean up after his pooch.  I felt grateful as we passed each other that I have two healthy legs to carry me through life, a career I love, and my mom who still sends her love when I’m having a bad day. Remember dear readers, when life tosses you lemons… well, you know the rest. For some advice of the physical realm kind (non-spiritual, that is!) check out the School of Life, Canada’s Advice Columnist contest that I’ve entered at www.canoe.ca/advice  It would be a dream of mine to win, as well as allowing me to reach out to more of you. Wish me luck!

Lily Dale, N.Y: In Good Company!

April 3, 2010

My job as a psychic medium, healer, teacher, writer and speaker takes me to many wonderful international places, but none as full of history and magic as Lily Dale, New York. I’ll be appearing there this summer co-presenting a workshop and giving readings as a guest medium… I couldn’t be more thrilled! I’m super excited not only because Lily Dale’s summer program is world-renowned but because of the excellent company I’ll be in. This amazing energy centre with homes and architecture that harken back to previous centuries, like in a time warp, has also played host to some of this century’s most brilliant luminaries. This list of Spiritual, Inspirational speakers and mediums reads like a who’s who of world leaders in the metaphysical and healing fields. Names such as Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Doreen Virtue, Allison DuBois, (who told me of my strong healing energy, called me a kindergarten medium when we met and talked last May!) John Edward, Susan B. Anthony and James Van Praagh to name a few. Even the ghost hunters of  TAPS fame, Jason and Grant will be there this summer. Whew, no wonder I’m a little nervous about appearing there as a speaker/medium myself this July 2… that’s quite a cast to follow!! I am honoured to be among them, in some small way, and will hold on to the knowledge that getting me there was Divine Intervention at it’s best.

Many people in both our earth world and the Spirit world got together to facilitate my event July 2nd. and 3rd., of that I have no doubt. How do I know? Because many, many signs directed me along my path and reading those signs, as well as helping others to do so, is one of my favourite things to do as a psychic.  Signs such as Allison DuBois suggesting that I check the place out, even though it’s name made me ask… “Lily Dale, you mean like the chicken”? That’s just a Canadian thing, eh! The day I just “happened” to drop by their offices when the Assembly’s president came out to reception – allowing me the opportunity to discuss my giving a seminar there! Another committee member with the power to book me or not, sitting right beside me in a lecture of over 400 people packed in like sardines. Mere coincidence? I think not!! In fact, there are so many of these “coincidences” that happen to all of us, every day that I’ve decided to write a book about just that. I didn’t decide this alone, by the way… my Spirit guides and advisors TOLD ME that I needed to do this to get the word out about how they help us in our lives. And so I shall. More on that later, dear readers.

My weekend events in Lily Dale are this July 2-3, 2010. Details can be found on my website:  www.jadeintuitive.ca  Since opening in 1879 it has been the largest centre for spiritual and metaphysical studies in the world; it’s also a REALLY cool place to visit! I hope to see you all there.

Happy Passover, Easter to you.
