spiritual life transformation
If your goal is to not only to transform the life challenges you are currently facing, but to also reach beyond the ordinary, everyday existence to a connection with God and clearer guidance from the Divine (aka your intuition), you may choose to explore Spiritual Life Coaching (includes implementation of PSYCH-K® processes).
As with the PSYCH-K® processes, the services I provide in this area are individualized. Some of you may wish to experience a spiritual life transformation that deepens your current faith, while others may wish to explore beyond their religious backgrounds...
If you have recently experienced the death of a loved one
and wish to connect with them, I am a medium, which means I am able to communicate with those who have crossed over into the next realm.
If you have a loved one who is getting close to death
(transitioning to the next realm) and is unable to communicate due to a stroke or other incapacitating health condition, as a medium and PSYCH-K facilitator, I am able to communicate with their Spirit/Soul/Higher Self so that you may better meet whatever needs they may have during this difficult time. This communication will facilitate an understanding between the two of you, and it may provide them with the deep peace and acceptance of their condition...
Be assured, I respect each person's religious beliefs (or absence of beliefs)
and I use language with which they are comfortable.
Oprah Winfrey, the quintessential leader of women everywhere...
although I don't watch much television, the shows I watch as often as possible are Oprah's.
The day she bravely introduced "Remembering Your Spirit" on a major network years ago, my spirit sang with joy.
With Oprah dedicating time to beautifully convey the importance of attending to our spirits,
I felt renewed hope of finding others with whom I could connect on my spiritual journey.
My longing for this connection with others on the spiritual path originated when I
experienced a shared/empathetic transitional death experience
at the time of my mother's transition from this life to the next in 1998.
Instead of celebrating this incredible blessing, the rest of the family rejected the news of
my spirit/soul accompanying my mom's miraculous and incredible journey to heaven.
About a year later, I tried again, this time during a women's Bible study group at a friend's church.
"Surely, people at church will understand," I thought. I offered comfort to a distraught woman
by telling the group of my shared/empathetic death experience because
the woman was terribly upset about the possibility of her own, unchurched mother going to hell
(based on the teachings of that particular Baptist church). My offering was not received well by the group,
including the minister's wife, who informed me that "such nonsense is of the devil."
Having my own family and my friend's church members reject me this sacred experience drove me underground.
For years, the only other person I told of the shared/empathetic death experience was my counselor,
who, although a member of the Lutheran church, is a Christian mystic. My counselor welcomed and
encouraged my spiritual growth, and she explained that
a portal to directly experiencing the Divine had been opened for me.
Despite the clarity of the my communication with the Divine, I was hesitant to incorporate it fully into my life...
until I fell ill...so ill that I could not participate in my daily life, as I was bedridden much of the time. My doctor
was reluctant to radioactively kill my thyroid and leave me dependent on Synthroid for the rest of my life.
Although I was frustrated by his reluctance to, in my view, help me get back on track with my life,
reflection reveals the blessing of him being from the other half of the world, where
insights into the mind-body-spirit connection have predominated and thrived for centuries.
Despite my frustration, desperation, and angst, I could feel he truly cared about his patients.
After asking and listening for an answer from the Divine, I accepted this sliver of hope, offered by a young doctor wise beyond his years. Deep within I knew the answers to my illness lay on the other side of these insights.
My spiritual counselor agreed with my doctor. She told me the following metaphor, which resonated deeply in my spirit.
"It's as if your house is on fire and you aren't aware of it. This fire, which is the illness, is noticed by your neighbor,
who runs to your house and presses insistently on your doorbell repeatedly to get your attention. If you choose to
ignore the warning of danger, and disconnect the doorbell wiring, you will no longer hear the doorbell, and you will believe you are okay. But in reality, your house is still on fire. The only way to truly resolve what is going on is to
put out the fire, as well as find the source of the fire to prevent other fires from occurring."
I would like to say I had an ephiphany and all was well very soon, but I'm human and old habits --- those pesky self-limiting beliefs programmed in my subconscious mind --- tried to prevail for a while...until it was a fire raging out of control.
So much of what I identified with, that which I thought I was, that which I felt proud of, went away. During the illness,
there was no possibility of my Type A habits continuing due to severe fatigue...my short-term memory disappeared...
my IQ dropped precipitously...I could not work...I was bedridden much of the time.
I found my body so weakened that I could not keep my eyes open to read unless it was something I was directly
led to read, and then I would feel the infusion of Divine energy and I miraculously experienced swift understanding
of what I read; then the energy would leave me and my eyes would close when the portion of that reading concluded.
I tried reading things for enjoyment of my own choice, but I could not comprehend the text.
Making my own decisions about what I read and when I read it were no longer possible.
As the months of my illness continued, I realized God had arranged for me to be in
a spiritual school of sorts. Exactly what I needed to learn at any given time was provided, as was the
physical ability to attend and absorb the information. The guidance had the perfect sequence of
information needed for my understanding of God and my part in my life's plan to blossom.
While the illness did not improve right away, I fell in love with spending time with God. When led to read
certain passages, I read. When led to close my eyes and commune with God’s Divine Presence, I lovingly communed.
Our beautiful two-year-old, born with peaceful patience and a love for nature, embodied and modeled for me
how to slow down and experience the joy of being. I had no choice except to put aside my previous proclivity of doing,
always doing, and over time the shame and guilt of not doing melted away into the serenity of peaceful, joyful commune with God and the sweet beingness of our son. Upon the recommendation of a friend, I began seeing a kinesiologist chiropractor
and she recommended holistic remedies. When I was guided to do so, I visited a medium, and learned about the choices we each make relating to the power we are entrusted with, and I learned that I am not a victim because
I have significant influence over the course of my life through the choices of free will I make.
Once the spiritual understanding and knowing that was vital to my healing was accomplished, the medically
diagnosed illness quickly resolved and my TSH and T3 Free lab results returned to normal.
I changed some of my old ways...I decided not to return to work, I enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom.
Other events have occurred, major ones, but now it's easier for me to view them as having worth,
even though experiencing those times can be stressful and sometimes, sad.
I discovered, quite by accident, that I easily communicate with departed loved ones (my loved ones and
the loved ones of others). Animals and children trust me almost immediately...they sense I am safe and I can be trusted.
My accepting, forgiving nature is enhanced with a deep respect and regard for all of life and for each person's choices.
I understand quite well from my own journey that my place is to offer a sacred haven of healing and that
I am not the "healer," but rather, the conduit through which healing occurs.
I embrace who I am, and if you wish for your journey to include me
as part of your spiritual life transition, I would be humbly honored.
