Potatoes And Peanuts – The Lengths Spirits Go To.

May 28, 2010

First off, my apologies dear readers for the length of time between posts… my bad. I was intensely focused on the advice column I was writing for a month as part of Sun Media and Canoe’s contest. Nope, didn’t win, but in life I’ve found it’s the things you don’t do that bring regrets, not the ones that fall under… “nothing ventured, nothing gained”. I’m rather proud of myself for the effort and thankful to all those who called me “a natural” when it comes to giving advice in column format. As a medium, positivity coach and speaker, my job often involves providing guidance along the paths of life, as well as bridging communication between our world and the Other Side. This true story falls under the latter category.

Spirit folks can and do go to extraordinary lengths to let their living loved ones know they are still with them. They continue to help us in our lives and they love us, even through the glass that seperates our two worlds. It’s not really a glass partition, but I use this analogy to explain to clients how their deceased relatives are waving and trying to get their attention… but they can’t see them on the other side of this mystical divide. In order to reach us, spirits will cause things to happen to facilitate communication. One day I went out for my usual walk along the beltline near my home. Suddenly an old friend who I’d lost touch with ten years ago, rode past me on his bike. He stopped. I stopped and we caught up on old times. Promising to get together soon, we both went our seperate ways. As often happens when intentions don’t match actions, we never did do lunch. But I was soon to discover that this was no ordinary “chance meeting”.  About a month later, we passed again on the same beltline, Peter on his bike, me on foot. We stopped briefly to say hi, again with discussions of lunch, including his mom, who had asked about me recently. I really like Petey’s (as I used to call him) mom, so was looking forward to it.  Again never happened, though Peter admitted he’d dropped the ball that time. We bumped into each other no less than two more times (four total for those keeping track!) on the same beltline and by now I knew that this was happening for a reason. I’d expressed that to my found-again friend, even telling him what I do for a living, but he’s a brilliant song writer who’s pretty busy. When it happened again this past Monday – I’d stopped to tie my shoe and he nearly ran me over, this time I wasn’t letting him go without a longer chat. Forces were working awfully hard to get us together!

As we walked, his dad suddenly came through strongly, telling me “his father, I’m his father”. Upon asking, sure enough Peter’s father had passed. Now I was certain who had been orchestrating our paths crossing. Peter told me that strangely, he’d had a sudden urge to stop mowing the lawn halfway through and go for a ride. The next thing his dad told me was potatoes and peanuts. “Does this mean something to you”, I asked Petey. “Yes”, he said, “they were my dad’s favourite things to eat.”  The night before I’d been at a pool party, where I kept hearing the words potatoes and peanuts in my head. As well as race car driver. Peter’s dad is a very strong, insistent spirit who was identifying himself to me a full 24 hours before I’d “bump” into his son again. Yup, he used to race cars and in fact had a stern warning for Peter to slow down while driving. That made his son laugh, recalling to me an event they spent in the car together years before… those who know Peter will understand this warning – he’s a bit lead-footed.

Dad gave me many other accurate messages and details, including a thumbs up for an upcoming big music break for his son. Peter called me yesterday to tell me he just got the good news I predicted.  There were also messages sent for Peter’s mom from her husband, which meant a great deal to her when he passed them on. The details I gave provided proof that dad was still with them, as their accuracy was undeniable. Dad even made me clap wildly and wave my arms at the end of our impromptu reading. A thing in their family was always to clap wildly, especially dad, for sometimes no reason at all. And Peter tells me his father had a goofy sense of humour… which is why he made me wave my arms madly and act like a goof. I didn’t mind, even though we were now on the sidewalk of a busy street. This spirit loves his son and moved mountains, or rather bikes and feet, to talk with his child one last time.

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.

Unbelievable Uxbridge Update.

March 9, 2010

Uxbridge… I’m lovin’ it!! I spent another great weekend giving psychic-mediumship readings to a group of terrific women. There was one token male there… the hostess’ husband, who kindly lent his house for the event and even graciously thanked me afterwards for “making his wife happy”. What a lovely thing to say, I thought, a double-edged compliment. Me on one side, his charming wife on the other.

What I particularly liked about this day/evening party were the two skeptics, who left as believers. I’m fine with folks having a healthy skepticism and I rather enjoy their surprise as I deliver undeniably accurate information. They were both very good sports about it, one flying down the stairs after her reading excitedly asking to use the phone to call a living relative to discuss all the deceased relatives I’d brought through for her. The other, who at first wouldn’t give me an inch in confirming the accuracy of my information, ended up laughingly telling the hostess all the times I’d hit the bullseye… into the wee hours of the morning! I even got correct the exact dessert she had planned to bring to the party, but then didn’t. Sometimes the spirits who give me my info. do have a sense of humour! Lions and tigers and skeptics, oh my!

Other memorable moments were the two spirits who travelled up in my car with me, giving me their exact names as well as that of a third, living person. During the inspirational seminar I give to start off the party, I discovered that all three people, living and dead, belonged to one woman. When I gave her the names I’d been given during my drive, I thought she’d fall right out of her chair with surprise. Hey… I aim to please!

The psychic all-day party became a weekend in Uxbridge thanks again to my dear friends who open their home to me whenever I’m up that way. They feed me too, and rather well I must say. Thanks you two! A lovely brunch the next day with mutual friends completed the weekend. A special thank you also goes out to my funny, sweet, though dangerous party hostess. Why dangerous you ask? She has a black belt, she can kick my a _ _!  Seriously though, a truly fun time was had by all, myself included.

Thanks Uxbridge, you’re blossoming into my home away from home.

Phenomenal Psychic Party!

February 10, 2010

This past weekend I was thrilled to do a private group event at the home of a wonderful and exuberant woman. Once the word was put out for my appearance, the Universe energetically pulled many special people for a night of  psychic/medium readings and fun. I was humbled by the turnout and worked into the wee hours of Sunday morning.

The evening had an interesting start. On my way to Uxbridge township, the spirit of a woman suddenly joined me in the car, anxious to talk to her loved one. Prior to readings, spirits often come to me, having waited years in some cases to communicate with their living friends and family. However boundaries are necessary, even with non-body energies, especially when I need to concentrate on arriving safely at the client’s home! So I asked her to be patient until I got there. One of the initial guests to arrive, a gentleman, asked me if he could be the first reading. During the small inspirational talk that I typically give to the group prior to sitting down with them one-on-one, I asked who belonged with the spirit “Helen” (name changed for confidentiality purposes). It was the gentleman who had approached me! It’s not a coincidence that “Helen’s” desire to be heard translated to her loved one, whereby he asked to be first. Spirits have many ways of physically influencing the living when something important needs to be done. She got her wish, of course!

Many other impactful and wonderful readings followed, as I saw one person after another and the evening flew by. As an Empath and Medical Intuitive I feel spirits’ emotions as well as those of the living. I also briefly “take on” the sitter’s ailments which establishes a strong connection with them and allows me to give a head’s up or direct them to a visit with their doctor. That happened in all cases this night and those I directed to their doctor confirmed they had in fact been considering going prior to seeing me. Part of what I do as a Healer is confirm people’s gut instincts… sometimes we all need a gentle push to look after ourselves. Other notable occurrences were spirits flying my angel cards off the deck, showing the “right” answer to the client’s question, and one spunky energy who plucked my sign-in sheet right out of my hand, flying it to the floor when her loved one entered the room. Some people brought objects or pictures for me to read using psychometry, and in some cases, more of a mini Reiki healing felt right to do. Or a hug from a grandmother in spirit to her granddaughter, which I was happy to stand-in and provide. 

 There was an air of purpose, of rightness to the evening and I felt gratified as people thanked me for being there. I extend a special thank you to the hostess of the evening for all her thoughtful preparations, yummy food and opening her home to those living and on the other side. Special thanks also to my dear friends who left the porch light on and allowed me to stay in their charming guest room that night instead of driving the distance home.
