Six Short Takes

Six Short Takes

The last few blogs have been quite long, so today we are going to do "Short Takes," things to ponder.

Something to schedule:

1) The next Mystic Messengers Psychic Fair will be Sunday, November 13. In November, the date moves to the second Sunday. You can put the date on your calendar now.

Ideas to contemplate:

2) Halloween is next Monday. The veil is thinnest at this time of year. Do you have a ghost story to share? I love hearing them. You can e-mail your story to me at

3) "Life" vs. "Experience." During a few recent channelings, Spirit has referred to this lifetime as "your experience." They didn't call it "life" because "life" encompasses both sides of the veil. Life is everlasting. Life on Earth is just one experience in a physical dimension. They don't refer to this as "life," they refer to it as "your experience."

4) At the September Psychic Fair, two readers told me that they hear differently from other people.

Karreen said, "When I was born, I knew I heard differently. When people talked or when there was music, I heard their spirit. I could hear what they said, but their spirit talked different to me. People would say, ‘Oh wasn't that neat? Did you hear what she said?' and I was like ‘That's not what they said.' I heard their spirit talking. I felt their vibrations. I wondered if something was wrong with me."

It wasn't until college that Karreen figured out what was happening and that she really did hear things differently from other people. To this day, her challenge is not to read people's energy, because how they act and who they are, can be very different things.

Petra Gross, who works with essential oils, mentioned that when she talks to clients, some words sound louder to her, or there is the ring of a bell, and she knows to pay attention to those words. They are clues to the person's issues. She hears some words with a special emphasis.

Do you hear things differently than other people hear them? Is that your gift/challenge?

5) Everyday spirituality. Spirituality is not just about intellectually understanding the cycle of life, death, and reincarnation. It's about how we apply that understanding in our everyday life. How we can use metaphysical principles to suspend judgment and to extend compassion to someone in crisis. How we can remain steadfast and strong as we assist someone with their transition, sharing our belief that there is an afterlife of joy; converting their fear into a curiosity about possibilities.

Living a spiritual life is evidenced by our willingness to release old spites (anger) when situations change, people change, and we have the opportunity to move from anger to tenderness. It is our willingness to be vulnerable, instead of defensive, as situations evolve.

6) My husband had a good friend die in a car accident in CA on Sunday. This, of course, was a shock. The only thing which makes it a bit better is knowing that this guy's soul is fine. He was a spiritual/psychic/energy worker and I'm sure he understands what happened and where he is. We are wishing him good luck for an easy transition.

That's what's going on in my week. Anything interesting in your life? Let me know by sending an e-mail to

John Hunter's Near-Death Experience

John Hunter's Near-Death Experience

For the last few weeks, I've been posting stories from psychics about their near-death experiences and the messages they brought back from the other side.

In 2015, I posted John Hunter's near-death experience. It was so detailed, I posted it in two pieces: March 26, 2015 and April 2, 2015.

What messages did John bring back? He says that we are all here because of the Love Vibration. One aspect of the Love Vibration is that it allows us to enter a physical body. In addition, whenever we have a struggle, we can apply the Love Vibration: acceptance (accepting the issue for what it is; not judging it), acknowledgment, forgiveness, and letting go. By enacting these vibrations of love in our personal space, we dissipate negative energy. There is no power to the negative energy. All that is left is the positive.

According to John, love is the answer to everything. Love feeds and transforms negative energy into positive energy.

This is how John's NDE story begins:

I am in college, sitting in astronomy class, and I begin to feel numbness on my left side. I think, "Oh, I worked out this morning before class. I didn't stretch well. I am a little sore." I am 21 years old, working out all the time, and thinking I'm invincible.

I am sitting there stretching and, all of the sudden, my whole body is freezing cold. Overwhelmingly cold. My teeth are chattering. I have goosebumps. I nudge the person next to me in class and ask, "Is it cold in here?" No, they don't think it is cold. An instant later, I am hot; sweating hot. My skin is red. I am so hot, I am uncomfortable; unbelievably hot. So I nudge the person on the other side and ask, "Is it hot in here?" No, they think it is perfectly fine. Okay. For the next 30 minutes of class, I have drastic hot and cold flashes. I think that maybe I am dehydrated, I hadn't stretched after my workout, I need water.

After class, I take my friend home and go to a Wendy's by the college. I order a salad and water. I have no appetite; which is rare. I drink the water, but it doesn't help. I get another hot flash and I go to the bathroom to splash cool water on my face, calm down, and call my friend. It is October 1995; there are no cell phones.

In the bathroom, I splash water on my face, but I can't physically leave the sink. I am holding on to the sink. My mind is saying, "Let's go," but my body is not reacting. Whoa.

I have a feeling in my stomach that something is wrong. I lean against the sink, then lean against the wall. I think, "I needed to gather myself, walk out, and make the phone call." My body does not respond. I slide down the wall so I am sitting there, leaning against the wall. I am like, "Wow, something is wrong. I might not make it out of this." I get that feeling. I say my good-byes. I think, "Even though I'm only 21, I've had an exciting life. I have traveled, I've done things. The only thing I regret is not having a wife and kids. That's it."

The Journey to Joy

The Journey to Joy

Like everyone else, there are issues in my life I would like to resolve. At September's Psychic Fair, I worked with Karreen Martin who provides "Spiritual Response Therapy." Karreen asked questions about my situation, then worked to clear lifetimes of connection between me and the person with whom I had experienced a difficult relationship. One thing she told me was that this person and I had already had 80 lifetimes together. The other thing she mentioned was that this was a "feedback lifetime." I was here to experience things I had done to this other person in previous lifetimes. Really? I had been the bad guy? I had to take responsibility for this conflict? Okay. Something to ponder.

To do her work, Karreen used a pendulum and a notebook full of ideas. She asked me questions, then checked with the information on her graphs to clear different kinds of issues. She continually asked how far along we were, and intuited percentages, for example, "We've cleared 40%." At the end, we exceeded 100%. Whew.

Karreen's work with me took about an hour. It was deep and wonderful. In addition to the information I provided, she provided many intuitive observations.

When our work was done, Karreen said that I would feel a shift.

What happened?

I felt like a burden had been lifted from me. A weight had been taken off of my chest. But then, there was a void I needed to fill. I felt vulnerable. I didn't want anything negative to fill this vacuum. Several medical issues had arisen in my family. There was a lot of stress. I asked Laurie Hays, "What do I do?" Laurie reminded me that in situations like this, it's best to fill oneself with healing, white light. Ah, the white light of love. Of course.

I drew in the light and I felt protected.

But I still didn't feel quite right. I remembered another healing technique: Gratitude. I began to list all the things in my life for which I was grateful. It was a long, lovely list. Gratitude for this life-affirming experience on Earth.

Gratitude is the bridge to Joy. It worked so quickly. I felt happy. Content. Like I had my life back.

At the October Psychic Fair, I "topped off my tank" with Elvia's Reiki work. I laid on her massage table while she cleaned and balanced my chakras. When I returned to my work area, I was happy.

Recently, I have listened to several channelers bring through messages about the importance of joy in our lives. Joy is a goal. It's a birthright. It's an aim to pursue.

Spirit says we are here to love and be loved, to have joy, and to try our hand at manifesting everything we want in our lives. Want to read more?

This message was channeled in September:

Focus everything you do on one ultimate goal: Joy. We often talk about creation, manifesting, and all these other gifts that you have. We talk about the journey, but the net end result of everything you do in this life, the reward and the goal that you should have, is joy. You are here to experience the thrill and the excitement that physical life has to offer. The most important thing in life is the joy that you receive within your heart in creating what you wish to manifest, and the joy of the journey to the destination.

Many times, we hear "this isn't satisfying," or "that isn't satisfying," or that you are upset about what is going on. None of that matters. You must understand the choices you make. Before you make them ask, "What would give me joy?"

Joy is what needs to be in your heart. Joy is the protective wrapping around your physical and emotional bodies. If you put joy first and foremost in your heart and in your desire, you will be amazed at how things work out. Things fall into place. How can Source not respond to you when you are joyful? Source must respond to you. When you are joyous and living a carefree life, what better happiness can there be?

That is why you are here. Why your Higher Self was so ecstatic about incarnating. It's not about lessons. It's not about balancing energies, although that is a part of it. It is the intense joy that you feel. Your Higher Self feels it. The more you connect with your Higher Self, the more joy you will feel. You will bring it out and will spread it upon this planet.

Have you noticed that when you smile at someone the tension eases? Joy is contagious. Spread the contagion. The joy, followed by the love. It brings peace. It brings everything you desire: happiness, love, companionship, and fulfillment. You will be surprised at how fulfilled your lives can be, and feel, just because you have chosen, literally chosen, to have joy in your life.

We love you. We bless you. Amen

Let me know what you think.

Carolyn's Near-NDE

Carolyn's Near-NDE

I asked Carolyn Munson if she had ever had a near-death experience. She answered:

"I was 33 or 34 and riding on the back of my ex-husband's motorcycle. We were on Highway 1, next to the ocean, on a downslope. The car in front of us stopped at a yellow light and we slid into the back of that car.

"I flew up into the air and it felt like someone was holding me up. I had time to review all the stunt movies I had seen. It was like time stood still so I could evaluate stunt movies and see how to fall. I was being lifted.

"I felt my heels hit the seat of the motorcycle. I saw my ex hit the car in front of him. I saw guys come out of the car and help him to the sidewalk. I looked at the road to see where I could land. They continued to hold me up.

"There was a car with people looking up at me. A guy was on the phone. I guess he was calling 911.

"I could feel the stillness. I took my time finding where to fall. I reviewed the stunt movies to see how to fall.

"When I was put down, I fell forward and backward, like I remembered seeing in the movies. I landed on my side and then rocked back. I was face up after falling from so high.

"All I had was a tear in my jacket.

"When I landed on the road, a lady came over and picked me up. I started laughing hysterically. She took me to the side of the road and said, ‘You are in shock.' I looked at her and started crying hysterically. She asked if I could move everything. She was a nurse.

"It's like I was guided. Then I wound up sitting with a nurse on the sidewalk."

I commented, "You were up in the air while you saw the guys get out of the car and help your ex-husband. You must have been up there a long time."

Carolyn replied, "It was like there was no time. There was no time element. I don't understand it. I saw it all and I thought, ‘He's okay, ✓.' I'm up in the air reviewing all the stunt movies, figuring out how to fall, ✓. Found a clearing, ✓. And then fell.

"In the meantime, someone was lifting me up by the elbows. I was guided. Someone guided me. It wasn't my time."


Carolyn, thanks for sharing your experience with us.

Carolyn is a reader at the Mystic Messenger's Psychic Fair. She also provides several types of bodywork. You can contact her at 520-465-5785.

The Jewish High Holy Days: Apologies, Forgiveness, and Compassion

The Jewish High Holy Days: Apologies, Forgiveness, and Compassion

This month, Jews around the world celebrate the High Holy Days. This is a 10 day period of introspection. People think about their previous year: what has gone well and what hasn't gone well. People are encouraged to ask for forgiveness of their sins and look for ways not to repeat whatever shortcomings they have identified. People ask for forgiveness from G-d and from each other.

One important prayer has us confessing a long list of sins we may, or may not, have committed, then requesting forgiveness. One interpretation of the need for this prayer is that it is considered a communal apology. Maybe, personally, we didn't commit each sin, but someone else in the congregation may have committed it. As a group, we ask for forgiveness because we are all connected.

Based on what I've learned from psychics and channelers, I thought about another perspective. In our multiple lifetimes on Earth, we have done everything. We have been warriors and heroes. We have inflicted pain and we have been victimized. What if this prayer is really about continuing to clear sins from previous lifetimes? The sins we have forgotten? The people we have injured and killed? What if this prayer is an attempt to clear Karma and connections over lifetimes?

After physical death, we go through a life review. We see all that we have done and we understand how we have impacted other people. On Earth, Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) is like an annual life review. However, we only critique what we remember and we only see things from our viewpoint. We don't experience what other people felt while interacting with us.

It's good to take stock of our lives. We can feel good about our successes, and identify areas needing improvement. We can hope for another joyful year on Earth in which we can do better and better.

I wish each of you a wonderful, fulfilling year to come.

This is a condensed version of the prayer of communal confession known, in Hebrew, as the "Viddui Ashamnu":

We have been guilty.
We have betrayed others.
We have stolen.
We have spoken falsely.
We have caused perversion.
We have caused others to do evil.
We have had evil hearts.
We have been violent.
We have been dishonest.
We have advised evil.
We have lied and broken promises.
We have been contemptuous.
We have rebelliously done what we should not do.
We have provoked others.
We have failed to do what is right.
We have succumbed to temptation.
We have acted without regard to moral standards.
We have persecuted and oppressed others.
We have been stubborn.
We have been wicked.
We have corrupted.
We have committed abominations.
We have gone astray.
We have misled others.

After reciting the prayer, we ask for forgiveness and compassion, and we vow to do better in the coming year.

I apologize for all of the ways I may have hurt people or done less than I could do to help them. This year, I will be more generous in thought and in deed.

Emmy's Near-Death Experience Message

Quote from a Psychic - Emmy's NDE Message

I asked Emmy, "Have you had a near-death experience (NDE) and brought back a message to share with the world?"

Emmy answered, "I've had several."

"It's all about love. Everything is about love. No matter what you are doing, it's always about love. It's about whether your heart is in it or your heart is not in it. Seeing through what I call my ‘Christ eyes,' the eyes of G-d herself. To me, that's it. All we have to do is love everybody who shows up. It makes a difference."

"I was born with an NDE. I had a problem immediately, but I didn't know I was having NDEs until I was probably in my 30s. I had a series of surgeries. I just knew that I freaked my mother out. I would walk in my sleep, I would see things, and I would hear things."

Money, Wealth, Abundance

Money, Wealth, Abundance

In September 15th's blog post, "Nine Surprising Psychic Predictions," I mentioned that a psychic had told me that a new money system would be coming in and that the earth would be flooded with money. People would have all the money they needed. I was quite skeptical of this prediction.

Yesterday, during a channeling session with a psychic, I asked for clarification of this idea. The answer was something along these lines:

Systems of money have always changed. Originally, people bartered with each other, then they used gold and silver coins to pay for items and services. After that, people used paper money which was backed by gold, then they began using paper money which was no longer backed by gold, but was backed by trust in the government. Now, people are moving away from paper money and into a system of plastic cards and "tap and go." In some businesses, money no longer changes hands; the exchange is done with online money transfers which are reflected in online account balances.

Spirit confirmed what the psychic had said: there would be a new monetary system. It was already moving into place. However, it would just be a continuation of the evolution of monetary systems that we have accepted for thousands of years. Currency forms keep changing and will continue to change.

What about the earth being flooded with money? Spirit said that the earth was already flooded with money. There was plenty of money. The issue was that much of this money was concentrated in wealthy families. There would be plenty of money for everyone if it was spread around in a more-balanced way. However, this idea had been labeled "socialism" and it would take a while for society to come to understand that there was no need for some folks to have more money than they could spend, while other people had nothing. If the money were better-distributed, the prediction would already be true.

I will have to go back and listen to this part of the recording to bring more detail on how, and when, this may happen. Keep tuned.

Spirit has often mentioned that the way to have all that we want is to manifest our desires. In the case of "things," like a table, this means focusing on the item we want and allowing Spirit to figure out how to get it to us. We need not be concerned about the money for the table, we need to envision the table so that it can be brought to us.

Here are five channeled observations on how manifestation works:

1) Possibilities are unlimited. Know and understand that Source fulfills each and every request. Source must say "yes," but you have to be very clear about what you ask for.

When it comes to money, there are two kinds of thoughts. One is "not having enough," and one is "being abundance." If you focus on wanting something, but know that you can't afford it, you are thinking, "I don't have enough," and that is what you will manifest. If you focus on the same item with complete knowledge that, somehow, it can be yours because you "live in abundance," that is what you will manifest. Focusing on abundance is the key.

If you are grateful, and enjoy what you see and experience, Source concludes, "That's what you want. I'll give you more of the same."

This example applies to every desire, be it health or the way you experience the world.

When you look to create vibrant health, see yourself as vibrant. See yourself at a point in your life when energy was abundant and you always had ample energy to go and do what you wished to do. Remain focused on living that experience.

Don't fall prey to, "If I only had this." No. You are fully vibrant, vigorous, and abundant with energy. If there is a day you just don't feel up to it, don't count that as a negative. It is just a day to recoup. Always focus on being vibrant.

Vibrantly healthy. Believe and don't think otherwise.

2) Don't look at, and don't name, a problem. Look at, and initiate, a solution. Looking at the problem does not fix the problem, nor does it bring the solution. If you focus on the solution, Source must provide the answer.

In many ways, society has this mixed up. People brainstorm the problem. No. Brainstorm the solution without giving the problem more power. The problem is that it is. Always feel, "the solution is coming forward and is present with me now."

3) Perception is everything. You are in total control of your perception. You direct your life through your attitudes, your perceptions, and your beliefs. You control your thoughts. See how they play out in your life. Look for patterns. The same things happen over and over to some people, and not to others.

Make life what you choose it to be. Each and every moment is precious. Live it to the fullest.

Act like you are in control, because you are. Manifest your desires, not by default, but by intention. Allow things to come to you. Get in the flow, see how easily things come to you, and enjoy the fun of manifestation.

4) On either side of the veil, each being is as happy as they choose to be. Someone with riches could be unhappy because they do not have love. Someone short could be unhappy because they are not tall. Someone else could feel they didn't have the breaks. Everything is a matter of perspective.

5) Every day can bring something which makes you feel richer: a flower from the yard, a sweet tea; whatever it is that makes you feel rich. It's the feeling of richness. Or, you can spend every day saying, "I may not have enough for tomorrow," so you put it away. That is living in fear. You can spend your life fearing that you don't have enough, or you can spend every day feeling abundant and rich, and all that shifted was your focus.

I hope you found these ideas useful.

Margarita's Near Death Experiences

Conversation with a Psychic - Margarita's Near-Death Experiences

Last month, I asked several psychics who had returned from near-death experiences (NDEs), if they had brought back messages to share.

This is Margarita's story:

"I've been dead and resuscitated six times due to respiratory problems. I was given specific messages to deliver to specific people. They were very leery of my story until I told them the messages, then they had, essentially, break downs.

"After six NDEs, it's almost like going back to the office to pick up my post-it notes. [Chuckling]"

I asked, "Why do you keep coming back?"

Margarita answered, "Because I am told I have to. I have something to do. I have no idea what it is. As I'm fading out, I think, ‘Oh no, not again. Do I get to stay this time?' Then I come back in the emergency room, or in the ICU, on a ventilator.

"The third time, I asked what I am supposed to be doing. The way my mind remembers the situation is that I was in an office, across the table from several individuals, and we were re-negotiating my contract. I was adamant on certain things and they were trying to sway me. Nope. ‘You either do this, or I stay.' I guess we worked it out because I came back.

"When I woke up, I found that it was my third day in the ICU. The staff had told my fiancé to get my family together -- I wouldn't make it to the fourth day. I opened my eyes and I was back. They couldn't believe it. My organs had started to fail by the third day so they were thinking ‘major damage.' They couldn't understand how I came back. I kept saying I had re-negotiated my contract."

I asked, "Were in you in bliss on the other side?"

Margarita replied, "Think of every happy day you've had in your life, that first moment you realized you were in love with someone, wrap them all up and that is nothing compared to how it feels. Being sent back . . . but it's not punishment to be sent back. It's just that you are not done with something."

She added, "After the first NDE, I almost had a compulsion to tell people what had happened. I was afraid to deliver a message to a particular person, but when I provided the information to her, it was a great relief. I didn't have to carry it around anymore."

"Sometimes there is no message. It's just an awareness. An awareness of possibilities. What we think and what it is, are two different things."

Thank you, Margarita for sharing your experience with me and the people who read this work. If you want to know more about Margarita, you can often find her at the Mystic Messenger's Psychic Fair.
