Life, dogs, grief

Life, dogs, grief

A soul is a soul no matter if it is a furry friend or human. Sending your loved ones on their journey home with love, prayers and gratitude opens your heart even in the midst of sorrow.

Choosing to invite love of another soul back into your life is not a form or way to replace that souls place in you heart, rather it is a way to expand the heart.

The Goddess You  “Love is the constant. When you give your love to someone, you cannot take it away, for it is already there.”

I will share with you now how loosing my fur friends invited an expansion of love and healing to my life.

Tank came to our family one fateful winter day. My husband and I had been our annual trip of R&R after an unusually chaotic year. It was  January of 2012, and we were in need a break, big time! Let me recap 2011 for you, over the past year of crazy, my hubby going through turmoil with his business partner, I had chosen to close my shoe boutique in early February, our eldest daughter was married in the Spring and our eldest son’s wedding was in September, our next in line son graduated high school and was off to his first year of college in the fall, our youngest daughter was entering  her first year of high school, ohhhh and also our oldest daughter was expecting her first baby in November had moved in with us when her husband a Marine was deployed to Afghanistan in September.

In between all of our many happy and memorable family happenings our big pup Mighty Joe, an English mastiff was diagnosed with bone cancer after falling down some steps and breaking his leg in early fall. Joe wore a cast for a couple of weeks before falling once again from the unstable cancerous bones in his legs. Joe’s pain was horrible to watch, as we did our best to comfort our big guy with pain medicine and love we also guided his trips outside with a belt under his waist as we helped hold his weight and guide him so he  could do his “business”. After the second fall through things took a turn for the worst. Joe’s suffering was apparent in his lack of movement, our vet gently recommended we aid his journey and end his horrible pain and suffering.

Not being able to stand on his legs meant Joe could not move his large 210 lb body on his own anymore. We gathered together and agreed as a family to aid our Joe and end his suffering, not at all an easy decision but one we each believed was the right choice. We drove to the vet, Joe not being able to move his body any more my husband and boys backed my car up to the back deck and used a blanket to lift him from inside the house into my car, once at the vet’s office again they lifted Joe out under a big tree onto the lawn.  As our other family members arrived gathering around our Joe patting him, the vet administered the medicine. Joe slowly closed his eyes as he took his last breath with each of us by his side, sending him with our love and tears, keeping with us forever, his larger-than-life memory.

Tank was sitting there in his tiny bulldog puppy body. We were in Miami beach walking around, soaking in the last two days of our getaway. Our kids at home all nestled in from the wintery blast outside as we walk guilt free hand in hand restoring our energy for what life held for us next! There he was, a little brown and white pup all nestled in a glass enclosed window with tea cup puppies by his side. The shop was a small upscale puppy store the beaten track in south beach. Our kids had been all over the tea cup videos going around, so it was not hard for Brian to convince me to go into this shop, if only for a quick picture. Tank got up from his slumber upon seeing B! The owner took note and gathered the puppy up placing him on a carpeted area in front of us. I said this is a bad idea, remember no more dogs we both agreed. After Joe had passed our other dog Lovey had been crying, howling is more like it every day. The kids tried to soothe her with treats and love, but she missed her big guy as much as we all did. But now, standing here in the puppy shop filled with photos of famous people with their new pups and the owner shaking their hands I was scared! Scared I would have to take care of another puppy, scared that I would not have freedom to do what I wanted to do because I would have a baby to care for. I already was raising my 4 plus now aiding my daughter and grand baby I had lost my sense of self again. Such a struggle for a woman, a mom to be, or know herself. I was not ready to take more on, so I said Street, don’t get any ideas! we are only here to take pictures! He shook his head and new where I was coming from, but his heart swelled with love as the owner put Tank down he ran right into Brian’s leg head first, like a bulldozer. Brian got down on the floor and got all kissed up by this new bestie. His heart was fully invested, yet my fear was saying NO. We left the shop and headed to dinner. We talked over the details of the possibilities and agreed to sleep on it. Somehow, Im not sure of the details, its all but a blur we ended up back at that shop making arrangements to fly home with this new member of our family. We knew our kids would be thrilled! I like dogs, I just don’t agree to say I love them when they are puppies and in need of training and such. I realize now this fear and resistance came from not having a connection to my soul truths. I spent so many years caring for our children, foster children, friends children, children in my girl scout troop, children in my CCD class. I was lost in all the doing for others that the idea of taking care of someone or something else made me cry! But now seeing my husband standing there with Tank, the love in his eyes, the love in both their eyes, It melted all the fear away. Love can do that you know. I made myself laugh when we boarded our flight home thinking about how me the gal who wasn’t the dog lover was the one with a bulldog puppy in a crate as her carryon bag!

Tank was loved by most… he had a honey badger type of personality, he didn’t give a shit pretty much about anything or any house rule we set in place. My husband, loved his new rugged companion with his honey badger attitude to boot. He brought Tank to work with him where Tank took charge of his office and was the gatekeeper of the staircase letting everyone who climbed the stairs of his presence. Tank had his favorite people, and those who liked to harass with his bark and body tanking into them. My brother Paul, the dog whisper of all dog lovers adored Tank. His laugh over Tank stories still warm my heart with the love he had for that dog.

Accidents happen, they are just that accidents. Though they change you forever you can find peace, love and healing in the midsts of your grief. Tank taught our family many lessons about life, anger, and compassion.

Tank taught me to use my voice in a positive loving way to help others forgive and release pain and sorrow that comes from grief, and this action would help me heal the grief I carried. That  every soul comes into your lives for a reason, and if you are open to seeing with your heart rather than your fears, lack and guilt that your life will be forever changed with the compassion that rises from your souls core.

Tank sadly passed away after trying to “Tank” into a moving vehicle, his attitude and essence will forever be etched in our families memories. Lessons I have learned from my fur friends have taught me to be open to inviting love in and expanding my heart without fear. That in loving my family and inviting pets in, I am actually healing  an old wound that created a fear around furry pals. And, finally the most important lesson of all, that just because someone calls my families new puppy a “replacement” I am all the wiser because I am choosing to expand my heart and love love love!

Fur friends are able to share their love from the other side of the veil, just as our human loved ones can. Open you heart and quiet your mind to see and feel them with you. They can also communicate through mediums or pet communicators to send you verbal messages reassuring you of their never ending love!!

Lessons you can learn form a fur friend

Love without restraints

Forgive every chance you  can

Snuggle more

Listen intently without adding your bark

Loyalty

Good-bye is never forever

Enjoy the scenery

Stop, Drop And Pray

by

Much of my work is centered on grief. This is understandable given my role as a medium. But, low and behold, there exist those wondrous moments when grief is not in the forefront, rather a desire to connect with a loved one to acknowledge they are okay on the other side. There are indeed times when grief takes the back seat for a client when their loved one shows their funny or sarcastic tones they had in the material world.

The pure joy that rushes through my soul connecting loved ones through the veil. The feelings can overwhelm my senses at times. Emotions can be felt, from both the client and the departed loved one. I can also find myself crying or laughing just from the imprints your loved one is using to describe life events and who they were in this life personality and all.

The signs I received over the airways last week during my Angels Don’t Lie radio show have me in awe of this amazing gift! I was speaking to a woman looking to connect with her departed male friend. Ken came through loud and clear with a joyous heart and far from shy energy. Ken spoke to his earthly loved one with appreciation by holding his hands over his heart, for the energy she shared with him in his life and the young girl who as he pointed to his eye which is my sign for meaning apple of my eye. Ken impressed the vision of a shooting star to describe the young women speaking of and her talent. Ken’s message of the shooting star is my sign for soul alignment and talent. This was such a happy and healthy connection not only for the caller but as well for each person listening.

When we can let go of fear, grief, worry and judgements the messages and guidance can flow to us through our own intuition or through a messenger such as myself. I’ve witnessed many hundreds of incredible healing moments, I’ve equally experienced healing’s for my fears and soul.

The greatest advice I’ve given to clients is also advice I’ve received from the Angels, when in fear and worry takes over, when you can’t see the end of pain and continue to suffer, know peace is within your reach. Stop drop and pray my child and blessings are waiting for you.

 

Tune in live to Angels Don’t Lie  every Tuesday 7 pm  on KBJB internet radio!

Call in 646-891-5252 to connect with your deceased loved ones or for Angelic guidance!

Have a blessed day

Truth Bomb

by

Here is a little truth bomb for you, I experience moments of anger, judgments and fear just like you. I am not perfect nor do I pretend to be.

You see, I am human, not above or below you or anyone else. I am me, a spiritual, loving women who talks to Angels and loved ones on the other side of the veil, and the real me has pains and sorrows like yours, only different, because they are my very own reflections of personal fears. Your pains look differently, feel differently and are different, because well, they belong to YOU. I have passions and desires as you do as well. We are unique, yet alike because we are Gods children.

I love you because of who you are, period end of story. It’s a beautiful part of what make me, me. The gift God has bestowed in my being that I am able to see your true soul identity, you at your highest soul-self.

Truth be told though, I don’t always like the things you choose, and, thats ok, because you have your very own life experiences and journey to be on. You are a lovely and authentically brilliant soul who is deserving of love and respect.

But here in the land of human beings, love and respect are not easily shared because of that rat bastard Shmego’s fearful tones. You see, the jealousy, judgmental tones that fly around are similar to knives, and just like a knife will do when it is in use, it cuts up the love into little itty bitty pieces. Pieces that are so small they barely resemble love, in fact these pieces of micro love now bare a price tag in order to be felt. This is what is known as conditional love. Love that costs, which my friend is not love at all but fear, and thats how sneaky that little Shmego guy is, he will have you believe this is the right way to love.

 

Here is what is truth, God says that his love for you is eternal and unconditional. He loves you the same at all times. If you are feeling less than, God loves you. If you mess up, God loves you. If you fall, God loves you. If you cheat, lie, steal… guess what…God loves you. His love is endless and always the same, steady and true.

What I have witnesses as a Medium in sessions with my clients is how challenging it is for people in pain to experience love, pure unconditional love the pain becomes the stopping point to loving others completely and without judgement. The memories of the past become the pains in today.

The Angels have taught me that pain is emotional, physical and energetic. Pain is a reminder of something that has gone wrong within ones life.

The Angels say that the when you become isolated and separated from the Divine fear will manifest in many ways to keep you from the truth of Divine love. Therefore if one is suffering with an illness and in a great deal of pain and makes the choice to go it alone, separated from the original love the tone of the illness becomes louder and more focused on the fear rather than on the love. The love will lead you to the answers of why and what your souls lesson is in this instant. In truth the illusionary world fear creates for you is not an easy one to shatter and break free from. Yet it is easy at the same time. Crazy, right? This is because of free-will and your willingness to choose love over fear. It is not a one time choice though rather it is a moment by moment choice to allow love to heal and shatter the fear. It is also your willingness to recognize the lesson within the pain.

Pain when left to grow and flourish over time your thoughts are isolated and focus on only the pain and not the healing. Healing is not simplistic yet when you are willing to do the work, no matter how emotional and challenging the work is, your soul reveals the pains starting point. That is the key to all healing. Though healing can involve the soul leaving this plane to continue work on the other side it is essential for the souls journey in this life to heal the wounds and learn the valuable lessons so the soul can evolve to the next stage of its journey.

Self love is the soul can connect with the pain outside of the stories and fear. Self love ignites the souls purpose and clarity. Self love is your connection to Divine truth and Divine love. The fear begins to fade away as self love opens the pathway for your courage and strength which in turn leads you to the pains source. Your courage to stand in self love becomes the focal point and leads to the fears fading away. This gives you the strength to move forward with a clear path to learning and evolving in your souls truths. The resistance of fear will still challenge you, but your self love will hold you and restore you.

Here is what you can take away from this Angelic message and lesson on pain, pain can tell you a story if you open and listen to it. Pain can be healed. Pain is a lesson waiting for you to connect with it.

Grieving The Toxic Relationship

by

There are complicated emotions and feelings that arise from the loss of a loved one, especially when one is  grieving the loss of a loved one who has caused pain and suffering to you and others during that soul’s life.

Grieving the toxic relationship, one that has left the scars of emotional and or physical wounds brings you down the path of engaging in the memories and events. The abusive relationship stares directly at you as you try to sift through the memories and unfinished business that aid your inner turmoil and end up fueling Shmego’s fearful tone.

The loss relationship deepens the internal conflict of ones private pain carried within the body, which  challenges the natural course of grief from flowing. This is where the block is becomes the wall keeping you hostage in fears prison.

Grief as you may know is also known as bereavement. Bereavement  is the state of a responsive being caused by a loss or a death.

Just a little side note that not all grief is caused from a physical death. Grief is a multi-layered response to loss and comprise physical, emotional and energetic energy.

Grief can be felt and experienced within all the human senses. This is why grief is complicated and unique to each soul.

Spirit offers messages and insights about abusive relationships and how it pertains to grief.

When a person is subjected to abuse, the pain of that relationship is centered around the actions of the abuser.

The victim is then predisposed to fear not only from within but also the energetic fear from their abuser. Separating from abusers fear is challenging to say the least.

Spirit says in order for healing to occur one must be accountable for their actions, reactions and the energy they omit.

To heal grief of any kind especially if you are grieving due to a trauma you must first heal your relationship with your Goddess Soul-Self.

Within The Goddess You twelve principles you will find your pathway to healing what ails you.

Surrender your past over to the Divine, Quiet the tones and memories that hold you in the pain.

 

 Self love will be your pathway to hearing the Divine speak to you. 

 

Forgiveness frees the energetic connection to the abuser.

Taking control of your actions and reactions by inviting love in and calming the feelings of isolation, anger, loneliness, sadness, grief.

Clearing your energy of the old while being in the moment of now.

Releasing the chains to past pains that are the blocks.

Letting go of the stories causing you to stay in the grief like its ground hog day over and over again.

Paying attention to your physical body the energy within your being.

Knowing what serves your well being and what doesn’t serve you.

Be Calm.

Picking yourself up when you crash and not kicking your self when you’re down.

Aligning to your mind, body and spirit.

Listening to your inner intuitive voice.

Today we breached a topic that is not easily discussed. I know first hand of the pain one can carry around from not healing ones grief. I have seen this type of grief cause by physical and mental aliments, illness and even death.

When I ask the Angels about why this happens in life, and why souls will suffer at the hands of another the answer I receive is not easily understood by many but truly the answer to heal ones life. The Angels say repair the relationship with God. The separation from soul to the Divine is where the pain keeps us isolated and in fear. Inviting Divine love is our free will, and is why we are here, To remember God.

Don’t go it alone!

Blessings
