How our loved ones in Spirit visit us, Part 2.

I’ve known June for about eleven years now. She owns a pet shop and a pet grooming service. Also, June is an independent community cat feeder, as well as an animal rescuer and foster. She was one of the first few people who came to my aid with advice and support when I picked up my first two animal rescues (two newborn kittens tied up in a plastic bag and thrown in a rubbish chute, whom I named Pip and Doe).

As you can guess, June has many animal companions, both living and deceased. She’s also not a huge believer in Spirit, so I don’t impose my beliefs on her by talking about the animal spirits I see in her shop – many of them her own deceased pets or rescues, crossing back over the Rainbow Bridge for a little while to visit her and send her love.

So I was surprised when June brought up the topic of deceased loved pets returning from the Light to visit.

“I believe they come back to visit. Usually as insects, really interesting looking ones. Here, have a look.” June took out her smartphone and began showing us pictures of brilliantly coloured butterflies and beetles, a moth with perfectly transparent gossamer wings, and a humongous grasshopper with its lower left hind leg missing.

“They all appeared within days of my animals passing on. The grasshopper’s story is really touching. A few days before, I rescued a large golden retriever that had been abused and abandoned. His left hind leg had been crushed by something heavy, and it was gangrenous. The vets had to amputate immediately at the knee joint to save his life. He survived the operation, but passed on the next day.

“We were heartbroken. Then on the seventh day of his passing, my assistant groomer saw this grasshopper perched at the front door of the shop. She took a photo, and it was only then that we realised it was missing a limb too. I think that dear dog wanted to come back to say thank you, and to let us know he’s fine now.

“So if you’re talking about whether animals have spirits and whether they come back to visit, I definitely can say now that I believe. There’s just too much proof not to believe.”

*          *          *

I often get asked by friends and clients how to notice the signs when their deceased loved ones return. Sometimes I’m also asked by grieving clients if I can invoke or summon them to appear at a mediumship session.

My response to invoking or summoning spirits, especially when the spirit is recently deceased and the bereaved person is asking from a place of desperate grief and sorrow, is No. It’s a bad idea.

When people and/or animals pass on, they undergo a process when their souls make a transition, leaving the physical body to move into the Light. There, they essentially start all over again: accepting and healing after the fact of their deaths, and learning how to function as Spirit without physical constraints such as space, time, the need to eat or sleep, etc.

They also get acquainted with an entirely new and different ecosystem. There is a lot to learn, especially if these souls weren’t believers when they were alive. Imagine having to get up to speed on Angels, elementals, earthbound spirits, entities, ley lines, Universal energies… you get the idea. And I haven’t even started on the Life Review yet!

So rushing a newly deceased Spirit to come back and visit you when they’re still handling so much on their end does not make for a good Spiritual connection. Two scenarios are likely to arise – I’m sharing them based on what I’ve learnt, observed and experienced:

  • The Spirit does turn up, but he/she is busy, distracted and possibly still traumatised from the transition process. Consequently, the messages aren’t clear and the connection isn’t strong or meaningful, disappointing everyone involved.
  • A slightly more risky outcome is this: an imposter appears. Sometimes, earthbound spirits, mischievous elementals or negative entities appear and pretend to be the deceased loved one. Their intentions usually are self-serving, sometimes even malicious, and rarely – if ever – benefit the living.

Some months back, I had to deal with a client who insisted on contacting her friend who had committed suicide less than 48 hours earlier. I had to keep explaining to her, over and over again, as patiently and clearly as I could, that the time wasn’t right for a connection. In response, her rude, sulky replies and passive-aggressive tantrums were pretty awful, and convinced me that her intentions for connecting with her recently deceased friend were more about self-entitlement than genuine concern.

As much as I understand that people who grieve for their deceased loved ones desire re-connection and closure, we can’t simply conjure Spirit for our own objectives. Here’s a way to connect with the Spirits of deceased loved ones without stressing them out or compromising your own safety:

  1. Pray. Prayer, when spoken from the truest depths of one’s heart and soul, is indescribably powerful. It doesn’t matter if you have a religion or not. If you don’t know whom to address your prayer to, just speak in your heart and mind to the Universe. Pour your heart out. Tell the Universe and Spirit how much you miss those persons and/or pets – they’re listening, and giving you love in any way they can.
  2. If you want to be specific in prayer, ask Archangel Michael (upholder of God’s truth), Archangel Raphael (guardian of healing), Archangel Gabriel (who specialises in emotional healing and communication), and/or Archangel Uriel (guardian of the earthly realm – he can help with deceased pets) for their assistance. Again, you don’t need a religion to connect with Angels and Archangels – they love you and are willing to help so long as you ask!
  3. When you pray, request with love and respect to the Universe for the Spirits of your deceased loved ones to connect with you at a time and in a way that is appropriate, for the greatest and highest good of all. Pray in faith, trusting that the Universe hears the cry of your heart, and that Spirit will do whatever it takes to make it happen.
  4. If you wish, you can ask for signs. Simple signs like a favourite song or scent, a dream, finding feathers or coins, or seeing a certain animal would be possible for a newly deceased Spirit to accomplish. Bear in mind that the final call is theirs to make, and keep your heart, mind and eyes open for their response.
  5. Be patient. In my experience with my own deceased loved ones, I’ve had some return to visit within hours of their passing, but I’ve also had one beloved soul who took 14 years to see me!

Some thoughts to round up this topic (for now):

Grief can feel like abandonment. Even when our minds tell us it’s inevitable for people and pets to pass on, our hearts and souls feel forsaken and rejected. That’s why grief hurts so horribly.

My heart goes out to you if you are currently experiencing a loss of a loved one. My comfort to you is this: think of death as your loved one leaving you, but only for a little while, to a faraway country where they must acclimatise before they can return to visit. And visit, they will.

May Universal Love, God’s Light, and every Spiritual blessing be with you.
Bless, Kelly <3

How our loved ones in Spirit visit us, Part 1.

My paternal grandfather died when I was 13 or 14. We weren’t close; in fact, Grandpa had been estranged from the family for some time. When he finally did pass on, it was relief I sensed from my father and paternal relatives – not grief. Even my youngest aunt, who was his favourite child, didn’t cry that much during the wake.

A few days after the funeral, we woke up one morning to find a large grey moth perched at our front door. Its wings at rest measured roughly eight inches across, and it was big enough that our neighbours from across the street noticed.

We’re an ethnic Chinese family; our cultural traditions dictate that butterflies and moths are carriers of Spirit, and should one enter a house within a week after the death of a family member, it is to be respected as if the deceased relative had returned to visit.

“Grandpa’s back,” my mother whispered to me as we gawked at our visitor from a respectful distance. “Don’t disturb him. He’s watching over us, just to make sure we’re alright before he crosses over.”

The moth stayed at our front door for seven days. Imagine opening and closing a door with that huge insect a couple of inches from your face – If this is Grandpa watching over us, he’s definitely making up for lost time now, I thought to myself.

After the seventh day, the moth disappeared and never returned.

*          *          *

“He died last year. We’ve been waiting and keeping our eyes open for a sign, but… nothing. Could you please help me tune in to see if Daddy’s okay?”

The young woman across the table helpfully took out her mobile phone. “I can show you a picture of him if you’d like.”

– Sure, Charlene, that might be usef… No. It’s okay.

“… Kelly, you’re pale all of a sudden. Are you alright?”

When a deceased loved one appears, sometimes they validate their identity by sharing details of their death. Charlene’s father was making me experience a few moments of his passing by cardiac arrest. The excruciating, stabbing pain in my chest had caught me off-guard, leaving me gasping and reeling in shock. Soon after, a throbbing discomfort and metallic taste in my mouth told me that he’d probably bitten his tongue at some point until he bled.

Through a haze of pain, I looked up and glared discreetly at the spirit of the middle-aged man standing behind Charlene’s right shoulder.

(– Tone it down… hurts like hell.)
Oh sorry! I’ll stop it now, he replied, hands flailing apologetically.

Instantly, the torment ceased; with relief came clarity and a message.

– Charlene, your father wants you to know he’s fine. Also, he says he’s on his way with a sign.

Charlene nodded and shut her eyes tightly. “I hope so. I really do.”

The next morning, I woke up to a text with a picture of a brightly-coloured bird on a study table. The message read: “This little guy flew into my room last night and stayed for a few hours. It felt like how my dad used to come into my room and chat with me when he got home from work. Amazing!”

*          *          *

Many times, I’m asked by friends and clients if their deceased loved ones are doing well on the other side, and if they return to visit. This question is especially important for people whose belief systems teach them that the dead cannot and should not interact with the living.

Whatever deep and complex emotions they feel about their loved one’s passing is further complicated by powerful reactions such as fear (“if I keep missing them, I’ll hold them back from reincarnating or moving on”), guilt (“Connecting with the dead is the sin of witchcraft and I’ll be punished”), and regret (“I should’ve could’ve would’ve when they were still alive, but now it’s too late”).

Listen up, dear one, and know this: Love is stronger than death. Our souls are eternal; the song of true love can never be silenced by the grave.

Our deceased loved ones definitely return to visit us when they can. Many times, they also make it a point to leave signs that they’ve been hanging out with us. How they return, and what signs they use to communicate with us, depends on many factors including:

  • Cultural traditions and beliefs: For example, the Chinese believe that butterflies carry the spirits of the dead and the deceased loved one might choose that form since it’s a familiar symbol
  • The deceased loved one’s personal preferences: a deceased bird lover might return in the form of a beautiful bird
  • Our personal (or shared) preferences: a deceased loved one might play a song on the radio you love, or that you both loved.

Our job is to keep our hearts and minds open to the myriad ways our deceased loved ones reach out to us, and to maintain a mindset of gratitude for having known and loved our deceased loved ones. Gratitude opens doors like you can’t imagine. 🙂

You are accepted, cherished, and embraced by love – something that death can never overcome. Dear one, you are loved. And that’s something to be thankful for, every single day. <3

We can’t keep birds from flying over our heads, but building nests in our hair…?

Sherlyn was crying so hard, her body was shaking. A young and beautiful expatriate, she had arrived in Singapore ten years ago and fallen in love with a colleague, Marcus.

Unfortunately, Marcus was married. Sherlyn was faced with a decision to make: either leave Marcus, which possibly entailed leaving her company and starting all over again elsewhere, or staying with Marcus in the shadows – the other woman.

Sherlyn chose the latter. Her reward: glimmers of happiness in a dark, tumultuous decade of secrets, tears, and loneliness. Being beaten and humiliated in public by the wife one nightmarish Sunday, some years ago. Frequent and painful break-ups, followed by excruciating reconciliations. Malicious office gossip and subsequent career setbacks.

“Things just fell into place. He was always there when I needed him, but never to the extent that I wanted him in my life. And now, I have nothing to show for it. Ten years of my life. Gone. Just like that.”

They’d just had another quarrel over the same old topic: whether Marcus was going to divorce his wife and marry Sherlyn.

“He says he doesn’t love her, and she treats him badly. Why won’t he leave? What can I do to make him divorce her?”

– You can’t make a man leave his wife if he doesn’t want to, Sherlyn.

“Then why is he still with me? Can’t he see how much he is hurting me – hurting us – by not ending his marriage?”

– Because it’s human nature not to rock the boat if we’re getting what we want. He has a respectable marriage for public display, and a secret lover to run to when his wife annoys him. For some men, that’s pretty much the best of both worlds. And even if he realises that his decisions are causing hurt, so long as his interests are not directly affected, he’s probably not going to budge.

As I replied, a card fell out the Tarot deck I’d been shuffling absently. I turned it over: Four of Pentacles. Depicting a well-dressed man holding tightly onto four large coins, the Four of Pentacles is traditionally known as the Miser’s Card, or as I call him in a love reading, The Stage Five Clinger.

– Sherlyn, you’ve been clinging on for ten years to a man who has shown no interest in changing his life for you. What makes you continue to hold on so tenaciously?

“Well, as you mentioned earlier, I’m all alone in Singapore. I suppose it’s my loneliness that pulls me back into this mess. It’s been ten years but I haven’t made many friends, partly because I wasted so much time and energy on my relationship with Marcus. Also, I feel that he understands me… during the good times at least. He was the first friend I made when I moved here. Things just fell into place. Now I wish they never did.”

Sherlyn sipped her chamomile tea. Her hands were shaking. I pitied her from the bottom of my heart, but I could only light the way ahead for her in this dark and difficult journey. Ultimately, Sherlyn’s decisions were hers to make.

She shut her eyes tightly and exhaled with a shudder.

“My parents are getting old. Perhaps it’s time to return to my home country and take care of them.”

– Perhaps.

The consultation was over. Sherlyn got up and adjusted her dress, then looked at me.

“You know, Kelly, I’ve always believed in going with the flow, following my heart, all those feel-good, self-empowerment mantras. After what you’ve told me, I’m beginning to realise that I can go with the flow and follow my heart and all that, but I still need to use my brain and moral compass. Or else I cause myself nothing but pain.”

– That’s true, Sherlyn. The Universe is kind, Spirit loves you, and we co-build our destinies. But we’re also bound by Spiritual Laws such as Karma, and in whatever we do it’s best to follow the Golden Rule: do unto others what you want done to you, and refrain from doing to others what you don’t want done to you. Even if you’d married Marcus, who’s to say he won’t get another mistress?

Sherlyn shook her head firmly. “I wouldn’t accept that at all… I’d go crazy. I’m almost there already!”

*          *          *

“I need some insight. She left me just like that. And now she’s with another man. Should I still try to reconnect with her?”

Philip had been sent to Denmark some months ago on a three-year overseas work assignment. Due to various commitments, his wife couldn’t go with him. Stressed and lonely in Copenhagen, Philip had an affair.

“I told myself this was just a fling, nothing serious. Things just fell into place. I had no idea she would leave first, or that it would hurt me so badly.

“I have no intention of leaving my wife or telling her anything about this. I love my wife; I miss her so much. And I know deep down there’s no point running after my lover. I just need closure.”

Philip had played with fire and gotten badly burnt. He’d learnt the hard way that relationships are seldom what they seem, and that the human heart is impossible to comprehend. One glimmer of hope in this otherwise bleak situation was that Philip was determined not to let it happen again.

A Spirit Guide came through for Philip with a message of love, and advice to let go of the past. The root cause of Philip’s choices – and his subsequent suffering – was a heart that could not stand solitude; a profound loneliness that pierced to the depths of his soul.

Philip texted me later to tell me that he felt lighter after the reading, and that he was going to take action to deal with the loneliness within him that made him vulnerable to temptation and hurt. I said a prayer for him; I know that Spirit is watching over him and he’s going to be okay.

It’s sad, but true: men don’t receive the same amount of emotional support and validation that women do. Men are assumed to be stronger, taught to “toughen up”, encouraged to detach from their emotions. Which is why when things fall into place and a happily married man like Philip wakes up one day with another woman in his bed, it’s hard to walk away.

So many marriages (and especially men) would be healed, so deeply and powerfully, if we choose to acknowledge our vulnerabilities; working on them with the loving assistance of Spirit and of our fellow human beings. That would be wonderful. 🙂

*          *          *

The saying goes, “You can’t keep birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair.”

Life is about choices. Every choice we make either aligns us closer with the Light, or pulls us down a little deeper into the dark.

But choices aren’t always easy to make. As human beings, we want stability. We enjoy the comfort zone. Which is why, when temptation first flies past, we don’t budge.

Temptation draws near again, wings outstretched, sensing prey. We smile, lounge in our armchairs and wave hi.

Temptation perches on our head, twigs in its beak, ready to build a nest. Things are falling into place, but they are the wrong things. Do we sit there and allow ourselves to be destroyed, or do we get up and shake it off?

I’m only a Spiritual messenger, healer and Lightworker. I’m not God, and I certainly don’t have the right to tell you what to do. I can only light the way ahead for you – you alone have the power to stop the birds from building nests in your hair, and to make the right choices when the wrong things fall into place.

Remember: even in the midst of hurt, confusion and darkness, you are still loved by Spirit. The Universe is always extending Her hand to help if you’re willing to take it. You’re not alone, and you’re not forsaken.

Perhaps the birds have been flying over your head a little too often recently. Possibly you’ve allowed one to hop on your shoulder. Maybe right now there are a couple on your head and you just overheard them discussing interior designs and the price of twigs.

Whatever your situation, do what you must do. Be brave, and be blessed.

Death is not the end, but a door… that Spirit opens to visit.

We’re friends and sometimes we work together, but Mike and I aren’t close.

So when news of Mike’s mum’s passing finally reached me, it was two weeks after the funeral. By an awful coincidence, the day after his mum passed on, I’d called Mike to settle some work-related matters. Mike, being the strong silent type of guy and a consummate professional, didn’t mention it either. I only found out later, through a mutual friend. Agh.

A month passed. Two. We were both busy, didn’t contact each other much.

Until one night when I had a dream.

I was in a room filled with soft white light. She stood behind my right shoulder and wouldn’t show her face. I was guided to a large cork board hanging from the wall.

Pinned on the board: watercolours. Charcoal caricatures, the type you get done when you’re on holiday in a tourist trap like Venice. Polaroids, mostly faded. All of family.

I recognised one face in all of them.

“Yes. I’m his mother.”
— And your message?
“Tell him…”

*          *          *

I wasn’t sure at first. I was aware of Mike’s religious beliefs. I knew his religion taught that death was final, followed by judgement, heaven and hell. His faith took a strong view against psychic mediums. Also, Mike didn’t know this side of me (at that time, I wasn’t entirely out of the closet in terms of spirituality). Would it affect our relationship?

Well… nothing ventured, nothing gained.

So I called.

He was surprisingly open, and touched by his mother’s concern for the family even beyond this life. He even asked for advice on how to contact his mother himself — I didn’t expect this at all.

“Sometimes my mind still drifts to her when I’m working. I get into this headspace where I’m in a white room, having a conversation with her. Is it my imagination?”
— Have faith, Mike. That’s when she visits.

*          *          *

Mike wasn’t the only one touched by this experience. So was I.

I already know this well, but I was amazed yet again at how far our loved ones in Spirit will go just to make that connection with us.

Grief is a devastating force. Mike and his mum were close. When she left this earth, part of his soul died with her. She knew this — and planned her comeback.

As I mentioned, Mike and I aren’t close. I’d never met Mike’s family before. Still, she didn’t give up, didn’t stop searching for someone who knew Mike and who could serve as a channel of communication. In other words, a medium.

Mike is a good person, a popular guy with lots of friends. Could she have taken two months to search for someone within his social circle who could help out?

I don’t know.

I only know that death is not the end, but a door. A door that is sometimes shut, but never fully locked. And this door between the earthly and the spiritual realms is opened far, far more often than we think.

So the next time you find yourself daydreaming, and a reminder of someone who’s passed on suddenly pops in your head. A vision, a voice, a fragrance, anything.

Have faith. That’s when they visit.

The Tarot: a master key to connecting with Spirit

Imagine yourself standing at a crossroads and wondering which path to take. The routes are unmarked; each route leads to a closed door in the far distance, a door you can’t get through unless you take the route and open it yourself. So much is unknown, unseen, and inaccessible by human means.

Before you choose your path and open that new door, you need assistance to understand the incomprehensible. To see the unseen. You need some kind of spiritual master key that helps you understand what probably lies behind each door. And, perhaps, what also lies around and within you.

Your questions could be spiritual, or they could be very practical. You might be asking about your finances, your career, your relationships, or your soul’s calling. You want empowerment, insight, spirituality. You also want accuracy and practical detail – this is real life, after all. You need a tool that can handle all your questions… and then some.

Enter the Tarot.

What is the Tarot?

The Tarot is a master key that opens the gateway to Spirit. It provides a tangible platform through which Spirit channels guidance, advice, insights and likely outcomes to those who seek to know.

The Tarot is a deck of 78 cards. It is split into two Arcana, the Major (22 cards) and the Minor (56 cards). The Minor Arcana are further divided into four Suits, traditionally known as the Cups, Swords, Rods (or Wands) and Pentacles (or Coins). Each card represents a range of specific and unique messages from Spirit to the seeker. As with Angel cards, no cards are repeated.

***

What the Tarot can do

The Tarot tunes into your energy and gives you insight into the situations you’re seeking clarity about. A Tarot reading can tell you about your unconscious influences, your strengths and weaknesses, and helpmeets (as well as obstacles) along your path. The Tarot can suggest certain actions to take, and highlight the likely outcomes of each action. In the right hands, the Tarot is a powerful tool that illuminates your path and empowers you to make the right choices.

What the Tarot might do… sometimes

Sometimes, the Tarot might give simple yes/no answers, provide dates and times of important events, or give descriptions of people who will play important roles in your life. Bear in mind that getting accurate answers for such questions depends on how firmly the events are “fixed” or destined. In my experience, this is uncommon – simply because the Universe wants us to co-create our destinies with our attitudes, beliefs and choices.

What the Tarot won’t do

The Tarot won’t fix your problems for you. The Tarot is not a substitute for medical, legal, or financial advice. The Tarot won’t tell you what to do: an ethical and responsible Tarot reader will generally avoid giving answers that start with You should. The Tarot very, very rarely tells you you’re doomed without suggesting a way out (remember, you co-create your destiny!). And the Tarot won’t curse you if you don’t follow its advice – that only happens in the movies!

***

What can I ask the Tarot?

I get this question a lot from my clients. The answer: pretty much anything so long as your intention is pure and clear, and you steer clear of certain karmic boundaries. So spying on your wife’s private life without her knowledge or permission is a no-no, for instance.

What I have to say now might be unpopular with some: personally, I don’t recommend dabbling in the Tarot without proper spiritual guidance and teaching. This is because of the Tarot’s very complex history of close to 600 years, which has resulted in a spiritual heritage that combines elements of light and dark.

What this means is, if you don’t know what you’re channelling during a Tarot reading, there’s a risk you might be playing with fire.

If you’re a beginner, it’s generally safer to use Angel cards and setting the intention to work only with the Archangels and your guardian Angels.

But if the Tarot is calling to you, then be very clear about setting boundaries regarding which Spirits you choose to work with (again, the Archangels and your guardian angels are a good starting point). Alternatively, do your research and book a reading with a Tarot reader you can trust.

May your connection with Spirit, be it via Angel cards, the Tarot or other means, bless you greatly!

Your Angels are always singing over you. Here’s how Lin found out.

Behind every blade of grass is an angel singing, “Grow, grow!”
– Jewish proverb

*          *          *          *          *

Lin had been crying nonstop for two hours.

Two weeks earlier, Lin’s life was turned upside down. Her husband of 20-plus years returned home with his new girlfriend, said he wanted a divorce, and kicked her out. Lin worked part-time as an assistant at her husband’s watch repair shop – so he fired her too.

Lin lost her marriage, her job, and the roof over her head. A 48-year-old secondary school dropout, Lin didn’t have the experience or qualifications required to get a job that would cover her living expenses. Her savings could keep her afloat for one month, two at the most. She was staying with her sister for the time being, but the small flat was badly overcrowded and she would have to find her own place soon.

“He looked down on me because I have nothing. I have no education. I’m old, not pretty anymore. I couldn’t even bear him a child. What am I good for? Why am I alive? I’m worthless… worthless.”

I was quiet. When someone reaches a certain point in despair, any comfort or encouragement sounds like mockery. At these times, silence is best.

After emotional release, the healing can begin. Lin was guided through a prayer of forgiveness, where she released her husband from his karmic debt and more importantly, freed herself from bitterness and the past. After that, we performed a simple cord-cutting meditation where Lin let go of the negative energies, thoughts and emotions that bound her to him. I called on the angelic realm to give Lin strength as she walked through this time of darkness.

At the end of the session, Lin stood up to leave. She was calmer, and beginning to see the light, a twinkling star at the end of a very long tunnel. Suddenly, she jerked her head up and stared at a spot behind my head.

“What’s that?”
– What?

“Those flying things… Spots.” She smiled faintly, for the first time in almost three hours. “So pretty.”

I turned in time to see two orbs, burning golden-white, gliding slowly through the air and passing through the walls. Okay, I thought to myself. That would explain the strong tingles at the back of my head and down my spine for the past half an hour.

– They’re your guardian angels.

“A useless nobody like me can have guardian angels? Really? Then why didn’t they do anything when I needed them?” She sounded almost angry.

– Because they respect your free will. Your right to make your own choices. They can’t intervene unless you ask them to. But now we’ve called on them to help, I’m sure they will. Only believe.

Lin nodded firmly. “I believe,” she said. “After all, I’ve nothing left to lose.”

*          *          *

One month later, Lin called.

“I got a job!” she said excitedly. “I dreamt that the restaurant near my home needed an assistant cook urgently. So when I woke up the next day I went there, and before I went, I asked my angels for a sign. I didn’t want to trouble my angels too much, so I said any sign will do, just make it clear enough for this stupid old woman to see.

“The manager was very nice, she interviewed me for ten minutes, and she told me I could start work the next day. Her name is Angelle.”

*          *          *

The next month, she called again.

“My husband wants me back. Should I go back?”
– It’s up to you. What happened?
“He called me just now. His girlfriend borrowed $20,000 and disappeared overseas. He asked me to lend him some cash. And he says he misses me.”

She was silent for a moment.

“I’ll wait and see. Maybe I will. But even if I don’t go back, I’m not sad or scared anymore. I don’t need him.

“You know, when he kicked me out, I thought I was going to die. A worthless thing like me, how can I survive alone? But I’ve changed. Now I understand.

“I’m not worthless. And I’m not alone. I have angels with me.”

Angels & Angel Cards 101: Connecting with the Angels

In last week’s article, I discussed Spirit cards and how they function. Spirit cards serve essentially as channels for seekers to connect with Spirit and receive messages to help, heal and guide us. In this article, we focus on how Angel cards work and who Angels are.

***

What are Angel cards, and how do Angel card readings work?

Angel cards usually come in decks of Angelic numbers such as 33 or 44. Each card contains a picture of an Angel or Archangel, along with a keyword and/or message that the Angelic being represents. Every card in the deck is unique; no cards are repeated.

During a reading,  the seeker asks a question. The Angel deck is presented face-down to the seeker. The seeker randomly draws a number of cards from the deck, selecting these cards using his or her intuition, before turning them over to discover the Angels’ answer.

Many times, while the seeker is selecting the cards I can see that person’s guardian angels standing alongside and slightly behind the seeker, gently nudging the seeker to pick certain cards. I sometimes also see the Angels represented in the cards channelling their energies into the deck, giving certain cards an energy boost to attract the seeker to them.

So I can guarantee you this: when you select the cards, you’re not alone. You have an Angelic support team that’s literally behind you all the way, and is willing to intervene in your life once you call on them for assistance!

***

So who are the Angels, anyway?

I’m glad you asked! Let’s get some facts straight about these awesome, loving and powerful spiritual beings RIGHT NOW. <3

First and foremost, you don’t have to be religious to believe in Angels. Angels exist whether you believe in them or not. They are servants of God, Source, Origin, or whatever you wish to call the Divine Creator Spirit. Like God, the Angels are not constrained by religious belief, cultural tradition, or whether you’re a good or bad person.

We are all born with at least one guardian angel. Their mission is to guide us through this strange little thing called life, and to help us achieve our highest and greatest good possible. After all, we are co-creators of our destiny, and within each of our souls is a spark from the Divine flame. The Angels see the Divine in us, and love us for what we can become. Isn’t that wonderful?

So it doesn’t matter if you’re Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, pagan, agnostic or atheist – it doesn’t matter who or what you are – your guardian angel exists, loves you unconditionally, and wants the best for you.

Angels are not human. They are a different race of high-vibrational Spirit beings who take on a human-like appearance so as not to scare the crap out of us. So, to answer a frequently-asked question: No, I’m afraid your deceased loved ones don’t become your guardian angels after they cross into the Light. Many of them do return as Spirit Guides, though. Or simply as themselves! (I’ll cover that in the next article, so stay tuned.)

***

What’s the difference between Angels and Archangels?

In one word: rank. An Angelic hierarchy exists. The top generals in the Angelic host are known as the Archangels. They each have a specific portfolio, and contribute in their own way to anchor more and more Light in a world that needs it so desperately.

The Archangels are powerful enough that they can be in more than one place at a time, so go ahead and call on them whenever you need. Some examples of Archangels and their portfolios include:

  • MICHAEL: The Warrior Archangel and Upholder of God’s truth. He’s the head honcho amongst the Archangels and the most well-known, for good reason! He’s always willing to provide assistance in the service of Light. Call on him for courage, strength under pressure, and protection.
  • GABRIEL: This Archangel’s main task is to act as the messenger of God. Call on him/her (this Archangel is androgynous) for emotional release, the healing and empowerment of the Divine Feminine within your soul, as well as assistance in communicating important messages.
  • RAPHAEL: The Healer. Call on him for healing, recovery and rejuvenation from all sorts of disease and dis-ease, be it physical, mental, or emotional. He also watches over travellers, and it’s good to call on him for protection when going on a trip. Raphael’s keen sense of humour proves that laughter truly is the best medicine.
  • URIEL: Call on this Archangel if you desire a clear perspective in a confusing situation. He’s the Guardian of the earthly realm, and your go-to Archangel for anything to do with environmental conservation, animal rights etc! You can also call on Uriel to help improve your relationship with your pets.

 

***

If Angels exist and love me so much, then why do I still have so many problems? Also, how do I call on my guardian angels and the Archangels?

Angels are bound by the Laws of the Universe. As agents of God, they cannot and will not overstep their boundaries. One boundary in particular is set by our free will. You and I have the autonomy to decide how we want to lead our lives, and the Angels will respect our choices. They won’t intervene unless we ask them to – so maybe it’s time to start asking!

How to talk to your angels: Go somewhere peaceful and quiet where you can relax. Make yourself comfortable. Close your eyes if you’d like, and breathe deeply. Concentrate on your breathing until you reach a state of calmness. Then speak to your guardian angels in your mind and heart. No worries, they can read your thoughts.

When you’re done, give them your love and thanks. Then you can end your session of prayer and meditation (yep, that’s what just happened!) with a nap. Or some gentle stretching. Or a burger. Whatever makes you happy. It’s that simple. 🙂

Alternatively, you might like to try an Angel card reading. If so, feel free to book a reading with a Spirit worker you trust, and who works with Angels.

May your connection with the Angels bless your life richly!

Angel Cards, Oracles & The Tarot: Gateways to connecting with Spirit

In this series of articles, we look at how Spirit cards work, and how we can use these tools of Spirit safely and effectively.

For thousands of years, mankind has sought to connect with Spirit in easy and straightforward ways, to gain higher insight into complex situations that demand appropriate solutions. Even today, many people seek a reading when they’re facing issues with their careers, relationships, families or other important aspects of their lives.

So how do Angel cards, oracles and the Tarot work?

First, let’s take a look at a typical Spirit card deck. These cards are usually embellished with pictures, many imbued with spiritual symbols that aid interpretation, and sometimes include a short message. Cards are not repeated in a deck – you only get one of each. Every card represents a different message from Spirit that can be interpreted to address a wide range of contexts.

During a reading, the seeker asks Spirit a question. This question should be phrased clearly and succinctly, so that a specific answer can be given. The seeker then pulls out a number of cards as directed by his or her intuition, or according to a format.

The seeker chooses the cards that feel right to him or her (as a reader, I often see my clients’ guardian angels and deceased loved ones standing behind their shoulders, helping them pick!). The cards are selected face down. They are laid on the table, then turned over to reveal their pictures and messages, and interpreted to answer the question.

Remember that these cards are tools for a connection with Spirit to take place. For this reason, it’s important that you use a deck that you’re comfortable with. Many people love the gentle comfort of Angel card messages; many others prefer the straightforwardness of the Tarot. It’s all good. 🙂

One simple rule when using Spirit cards for yourself: before you start, set your intentions. You can say it out loud as a prayer or silently in your heart. Or you can simply visualise it. In the Spirit realm, intention is everything. It opens the doors for the appropriate Spirit beings to connect with you. So be clear about what your intention is.

Here’s an example of a simple prayer of intention: “It is my intention to work with the Spirits of the Highest Light. I invite Archangel Michael, Lord Ganesha, my guardian angels and my deceased loved ones who have crossed over into the Light to join me in this reading. I will not work with earthbound spirits or entities of darkness – you are not welcome here. So let it be.”

It’s also good that you make sure your space is cleansed and that the deck you’re using is dedicated to the Light. Those posts are coming up! 🙂

If you prefer to seek a Spirit worker for a reading, here are some tips I’ve written that might help in your search for the right professional.

May your connection with Spirit bless your life richly!

A little boy’s spirit returns to heal his family… one step at a time.

She calls him Happy Feet.

Because that’s all she sees of him – a pair of child’s bare feet, glowing hazy blue and more visible at night, pattering here and there behind her as she works on her computer. He skips around her room, silent but never still, telephatically inserting pieces of his childhood memories into her mind.

Pink lilies. It’s not Mummy’s fault. Look at the birds! Run, run up the escalator. I never went to school like my brother. Hahaha.

He’s been with her for a week now. Sometimes he follows her to her oracle card consultations, little feet scampering up and down the escalator nearby while she meets her clients at a café.

She knows he’s probably connected to someone who’s just booked a consultation with her, or is about to. She is known in the spirit realm as a channel between two worlds, and spirits can’t wait to make contact with her once their loved ones on earth make the appointment.

Most spirits who contact her make their agenda known, clearly and immediately. Happy Feet hasn’t told her whom he’s here for. Not yet, but no rush.

All in good time. Once the deceased loved one appears, eventually, so will the living.

*          *          *

We’d gone through the usual questions a successful businessman with a beautiful young family would ask: career, finances, health, and relationships with various people in his life. All good so far.

The buffalo wings, stuffed potato skins, beer (for him) and Coke Light (for me) arrived. Consultation over, I put the cards aside and we tucked in.

I enjoy getting to know my clients as the unique and wonderful people they are… especially over food.😉

The conversation was great fun, and eventually turned to our childhood experiences with the supernatural.

“You say we all have spirits around us, guiding us. Do I have any around me right now?”

– Yes, of course.

“Really? Wow.” He chuckled. “Tell me who they are.”

– Mmmm sure. Lemme finish this tater skin first. IT’S SO GOOD.

“Yeah! We should order more…”

I never went to school like my brother.

Oh hello, Happy Feet.

A pair of hazy blue feet stood shyly between us, toes facing my client.

“… So who’s around me?”

– A young boy. He was about five or six when he died. He’s very fond of you. He calls you brother.

My client stopped smiling. He paused, as a dark and sudden flash of sorrow surged through his eyes. Finally, he spoke:

“I was a baby when he died. Freak accident. He was running up the escalator. Then he slipped, fell backwards and hit his head. My mum was holding me in her arms… She watched him fall. He never woke up.

“She blames herself to this day. She still thinks she could’ve reached out and grabbed him. Saved him… somehow.”

– Will you let your mother know that he says it’s not her fault?

He looked doubtful. “We’ve told her that for years. She says only my brother can say that to her.”

– Alright. Then tell her that your brother is showing me pink lilies. This could be the confirmation she needs.

“Okay. I’ll keep you posted.”

Later that night, he texted me.

“My mother put pink lilies at his grave during the funeral. She says thank you.”

*          *          *

Animal spirits are awesome. She’s really enjoying this latest one: a large grey tabby cat with a crooked tail, appearing every night to roll around on her bed.

Fat Tabby hasn’t told her whom it’s here for. Not yet, but no rush.

All in good time. Once the deceased loved one appears, eventually, so will the living.

A grandma’s spirit helps her granddaughter to move on. Here’s their story.

When she sleeps, she often dreams.

Of different realms, where many, many souls reside. They welcome her warmly, a visitor from the land of the living, and tell her their stories.

She is recognised in these realms for her soul’s gifts and calling as a Spirit messenger. Sometimes they ask her to pass on messages to their loved ones. When they make the request, she smiles and asks them to make it happen – to set up the circumstances where she can pass on the message to its intended recipient.

Very often, they gladly do.

*          *          *

“I read your articles and felt I had to contact you. I’ve been in a slump for a while. Any advice would be appreciated.”

I smiled at Lydia, the new client across the table, and began to shuffle the cards. Meanwhile, the white-haired old lady’s spirit who had been following me since a week before smiled at Lydia as well, her eyes overflowing with love and pride.

The Tarot spread indicated stagnation in career and family life. Much of the stagnation seemed to have originated in unresolved grief. A deep loss in the previous year had occurred, and Lydia could not move on from it.

“My grandma,” Lydia muttered as she looked down at the table. “She passed on from a brain tumour four months ago. She raised me up after my mother re-married.

“My grandmother was my life.”

*          *          *

My granddaughter was my life. The spirit of the old lady says gently, while pouring freshly brewed tea into two cups. Would you like a scone?

She looks around. This time, she’s in a cosy living room with many framed photographs on the walls. She sips the sweet hot tea and enjoys a buttered scone: despite the old superstitions which warn against accepting food or drink from spirits, she knows there is no danger in accepting the old lady’s generous hospitality. Plus, calories don’t count in dreams.😉

Thank you for coming here today, my darling. The old lady smiles. Tell her my hair is back to what it was. I’m fine now, and my granddaughter needs to look after herself.

She nods, mouth full of soft buttered pastry. Then she gets up from her comfy armchair and looks at the photographs on the wall. Many of them are of a young lady in tortoiseshell-framed spectacles.

*          *          *

Lydia took off her spectacles and wiped the tears from her eyes with a napkin.

“When her hair fell out from the chemo, I couldn’t take it. I would look at her bald scalp and cry in shock. She didn’t cry, I knew she was trying to be strong for me. But I couldn’t stop crying. She was my strength, and she was falling apart before my eyes.”

– I understand she used to get her hair done quite often at the hairdresser’s. She was very proud of her hair.

“Yes. And you know what?” Lydia’s voice turned low and savage. “After she lost her hair, I started visiting her at the hospital less and less. I couldn’t face the fact that she was dying. Luckily my grandma was only semi-conscious from the morphine most of the time so she didn’t notice. She died when I was at work. But now I have to live with the guilt of being so selfish. I was so stupid, and now she’s gone and I couldn’t say sorry and goodbye.”

The weight of confession was finally lifted from her soul. Lydia broke down and wept.

– Lydia, your grandmother is well. She’s here with us right now. Her hair is thick, luscious, and a gorgeous silver-white. It’s immaculately permed and comes down her shoulders. There are sparkly hairclips on both sides of her temples; she’s rocking the ‘50s bombshell vibe. Does the description fit?

Lydia nodded and stared at me, the last of her sobs fading. “Yes. Yes, that’s my granny. That was her hairstyle when I was a little girl. It was my favourite look.”

– She wants you to know she’s fine. You need to move on from the grief and take care of yourself. She may have passed on physically but in Spirit, she’s with you and watching over you. Is there anything you’d like to say to her?

“Yes.” Lydia squeezed her eyes shut and took a deep breath. “Granny,” she whispered, “I’m sorry I couldn’t be there when you left. I’m sorry I couldn’t say goodbye. I miss you every day. I love you, Gran. Bye-bye.”

– Your grandma hears your every word, Lydia. I see her smiling and nodding at you. She says you’re her darling. And now I see her being escorted by the angels and returning to the realm of light. She’s newly departed and she needs some more time to get used to being a spirit. But she will come over and visit whenever she can.

“… Okay. I’ll be waiting.”

*          *          *

When she sleeps, she often dreams. This time, she’s attending a potluck gathering in a large, wood-panelled barroom.

There’s lots of laughter and singing. In a corner, an impromptu darts competition has begun. She sits on a barstool, eating roast turkey and sipping a Bailey’s that a kindly old gentleman had offered her.

Here, calories don’t count, and there’s no danger in accepting Spirit’s generous hospitality. Astral projection can be exhausting, so she might as well enjoy it.

She is recognised in these realms as a Spirit messenger. Sometimes, they ask her to pass on messages to their loved ones. Already, a large border collie has boldly made his presence known, sitting next to her and accidentally-on-purpose brushing his wet doggy nose against her leg.

She smiles, and asks him to make it happen.
