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

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!
