Everytime I do a reading, whether in a group or private, I use it as a platform to teach and share everything I’ve learned from spirit. Although I love connecting people with their loved ones in heaven, I have to be honest, I’m not so sure that is my “soul/sole” purpose here on earth. What I do believe is my purpose is to speak my truth about spirit and let people take from it what they will, without imposition of my beliefs, or judgement on theirs. My motto, is if I gave you something that made you go “hmmm”, I did my job. After all, it’s the “hmmm’s” that sometimes ignite a fire in us, we never knew was there! I want to give you something that makes you hungry to dig deeper, discover more about yourself and about life in general. Something that drives you to just be a genuinely good human being and helps you to see that good in others. And most of all, something that gives you a faith in knowing that this life is just a snapshot in the album of our soul’s journey! So buckle up, get ready, we are taking a trip to heaven!
Very rarely will you hear me refer to my mediumship abilities as a “gift”, why? Because I don’t believe it is a gift only allotted to a certain few “special” people. A blessing yes, but for a chosen few, no. In fact that is the exact opposite of what God shows me. We are all one in the same, one no better than the other. Imagine if all of our eyes could view each other that way, how the world would be? I tell people all the time, I don’t think I’m special, I think…I figured it out! This amazing secret that everyone thinks is a supernatural ability, is really innate in all of us. It’s an opportunity and an ability that we are all born with. it is our free will choice to decide if we will develop it or not and use it to help us on our journey, much like our faith. I liken it to playing the piano. If we all learned how to play the piano at the same age how would we progress? All differently, right? Some of us might have a more natural inclination, but in actuality we can all learn to play the piano, yes? The amount of time and effort you give to something plays a great role in your development. Mediumship is no different. Anyone who has ever seen me, says, “you’re the medium?” As though I’m supposed to have a mole on my face, be wearing a turbon on my head and carrying a crystal ball? I’m this everyday girl, this mom, this wife, this nurse, who had an experience one day that made me go hmmmm!! Fast forward 5 years later and I know I don’t have it all figured out, not even close, but I have something amazing that changed my life, for the better, and can change yours too!
So those of you that have read my blogs might remember I wrote about my first experience with spirit. It was in my bathroom, aka “the spirit portal” LOL. I was getting ready for work, and what I perceived as “daydreaming” stopped me in my tracks. I was seeing images of things that I couldn’t explain. In the same spot in our minds eye that we “daydream” or visualize memories and process images. But these images were not memories and I knew that, and they involved my uncle who was in heaven. And then words were popping in and flowing as though someone was speaking to me. Enough that I stopped and said, ” I think he’s talking to me?” Want to know what I heard next in my head, “She can hear me!!” Yup it was that simple. I acknowledged it and my life changed. It was as though a flood gate opened and all these words and images started to come in super fast, SUPER FAST!! I often wonder if I had never acknowledged that moment and had dismissed it, where would I be today? And had he been trying before that and I dismissed it in the business of my life. I’m sure of it!! So the key to unlocking that door allowing spirit to enter into my life…was acknowledgement, I’m going to say it again, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT. This is 50% of the process!! Do you know how many times people share a story of how they thought a loved one that had passed gave them a sign and then followed it with, “but I could just be crazy, I mean maybe it’s just a coincidence, I probably wanted to see it, right?”. Ok, so here’s my answer to that, wrong! I rode that crazy train for a good 2 years!! I rode it long enough for us all. A word of advice, take the bus, it’s a lot less hassle, and there’s a lot more adventurous stops along the way, LOL!! The truth is, our soul’s already know it’s real. It is our human mind, or ego, that asks us to prove it! We need to touch it, feel it, see it, hear it, right? But isn’t the definition of faith just the antithesis of that? So why question it? If I told you this was it, we die, and that’s it, how does that make you feel? Now if I told you that our loved ones that have passed are truly around us everyday giving us signs and encouragement that they are still with us guiding and supporting us, how does that make you feel? So apparently we are innately masochistic as well? Well thank you God for the challenge, lol! What does your heart tell you? The truth is there is no reason to distrust anything that we think is a sign from spirit. They will not interfere with your free will choices, they may guide you, and encourage you, but ultimately every choice is yours. Trust is the next key!
So I’m sure I’ve talked about trust at some length in previous blogs, but it is crucial to connecting with spirit. Some of the greatest validations come in trusting what we want to withhold for fear of dissappointment. As a medium, I trust everything they show me!! EVERYTHING. I hold onto the fact that I don’t know these people, so anything they show me, I have no need to question it, no matter how crazy it seems. When I do readings, I tell people I trust what spirit says more than I trust what the person sitting in front of me says. So this is how it works. I look to that place in my minds eye, I see flashing images of people, things, I feel things, and I hear things. All of these puzzle pieces, I take, acknowledge, and deliver to you without allowing my brain to interfere with the flow of energy! So when I see them, I might see a quick flashing image of a man/woman that maybe fuzzy and blurred as though I didn’t have my glasses on. So I will describe them to you as best I can. Then I continue to hear muffled voices and sometimes will actually see written words flowing into my head. They might zoom in my lens on their feet, their shoes, their hand, their eyes. They use signs and symbols to make what they want to say easier for me to interpret. All of which I spit out to you. Last night I did a reading. I heard “go stand in front of that woman”. So as I’m walking toward this woman I heard “the mother”. So I say to this woman, your mother is in spirit? She says yes. Her mom shows me her daughter has her ring. The woman says, “no”. So I ask spirit again, her mom shows me the same thing. So I say, “well your mom says yes, persistently”. The woman looks down at her hand, and says “omg, I totally forgot I do, this ring I always wear was my mother’s”! We all shared a great laugh and it was this awesome moment, where my clients experienced first hand how to trust spirit. This happens in almost every single reading I do!! When I’m not interpreting something right, I will tell you if I’m not sure, I have no reason not to, I’m human and this is a process. Sometimes spirit will even shake their head no at me, if i’m not interpreting their message correctly! I know right, the nerve of them to say I’m wrong, lol. Here is the thing, it may not be an exact science. It’s two different forms of energy meeting half way thru dimentions to communicate. Sometimes that station gets a little static, but if we work together we will get their message down! Some have more energy to give and it allows them to be clearer with their messages. I will share that with you so that you understand the process. All spirits communicate in different ways as well. I have to take what they can give. So initially I may not see them, I may just hear them. When this is the case I always tell my client so they don’t put an expectation on their loved ones they cannot deliver. Some people will ask me, “well what color are their eyes?, ask them where my keys are?” Well here’s the thing I like to let spirit run the show and bring up what they feel you need and then you always know it’s coming from a pure place. They only give me enough to get me to say what they want me to say to you. So if they show me their eyes, I will tell you. If they don’t, I won’t. Putting that expectation on them is like asking them to manifest in full form in front of you. It takes an enormous amount of energy. Some mediums will dismiss a “no” and move on. I refuse to do that. There is no such thing as a “no”. Spirit knows all and is never wrong. So a “no” first means I need to clarify from spirit that I am interpretting their message correctly. That is my job, to get the right message to the right person. If they confirm I am correct and the person still says no, that means one of two things…either it will be validated by another family member or near future occurence, or it is coming from another spirit. Last night everytime I looked at this one girl I saw emerald earrings, persistently. She couldn’t place it at the time, but afterwards she texted her older sister, who it turns out had their mom’s emerald earrings. So essentially every piece of the puzzle should fit. If a puzzle piece still does not fit, then I know it’s coming from another spirit trying to get my attention shifted to them! I always say, don’t try to make a circle fit inside a square. In doing that you could be discounting another spirit who’s trying to get thru. When we both acknowledge a “no” I am asking them, show me more, tell me more. All it takes is for you to acknowledge one piece of their puzzle and it’s like you called their number at the deli counter! “Now serving number 22!” It’s like throwing out a fishing line and pulling their energy right to me so that I can connect with them on a higher level and get more validations from them. Acknowledgement is 50% of the process remember?! Next thing you know here comes uncle Jimmy making his way thru the crowd to turn in his ticket, lol! Often in groups their are so many spirits fighting for my atttention, they know they cannot all be heard. So when nobody acknowledges them simply because they “aren’t sure”, what happens is all the other spirits are taking advantage of the opportunity to bump them out of the way and get my attention so their loved ones can get messages too. So essentially they’ll need to take a new number and try again later if they are not acknowledged right away.
I don’t believe I have truly seen heaven or claim to know everything about it, but I do believe they allow me to meet them half way, “the space between”. And that is where my waiting room exists where I communicate with them and God is always there overseeing the process. I think when I see heaven I will be going there myself and that is when I will truly have all the answers. I believe they want to remind us they are not gone just different. They acknowledge our journey as humans is challenging to say the least. They want to help us embrace the lows, learn from them, and carry as few burdens as possible. They want us to feel the highs and let them become part of our hearts. Heaven is not this place in the sky, it’s all around us. Most days I feel like I can reach out and grab it. My goal, is to get you to grab it too. It’s an amazing feeling to connect with my Dad everyday. Don’t get me wrong, I miss our long talks, I miss his hugs and the feeling of his cheek next to mine. But I still have the best part of him..his heart and soul! That never dies!! So if what I do can help you to believe in anything, believe in that! “It’s been a long day without you my friend, but I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again” ~Charlie Puth…Now serving number 23!! xo Jules
