Workshop: 8/25/2018 Carefree, Az.

Open the Doorway to Your Intuition – A Day of Inspiration – August 25, 2018 9AM – 4PM – Carefree, Arizona

How do you know that it’s really your intuition speaking? Where do you turn when your world is full of conflicts and contradictions? Every one of us is born with our own GPS system. To some degree all of us have just forgotten how to truly listen and navigate with it. So we look outside of ourselves for our answers.

You are invited to a workshop designed to connect you with your inner wisdom. Trusting your inner voice is the highest form of self love and self respect. Your relationship with your inner knowing sets the tone for every relationship you engage in and every decision you make. We will explore multiple methods of hearing your inner voice and spiritual guidance. We will be sharing proven ways of amplifying your intuition. You will learn how to stay connected to your inner GPS in the face of challenging situations and emotions. You will also have the opportunity to practice inner listening.

Intuition is one of the most potent forms of inner wisdom and it’s available to us all. So come and find out who you are becoming. Remember if you don’t know where you are going any path will take you there!

Angels & Animals: Life, Death and Rebirth: Part 3

Molly Returns Home Again: As soon as Molly knew we were ready for her to come back, she began telepathically sending us images of a tiny, black and very fluffy puppy. The image of the puppy that she sent us was very little, but Mollie-2015-10-03Molly had been a Chow/Australian Sheppard-mix and she weighed about 80 pounds. She shared that she wanted to be small this time, so she could play with her little sisters and be picked up, carried around and cuddled. She also said that she wanted to be a female again and that she would have eyes that worked really well. A few days passed before I heard from her again. That morning I woke up with a very strong urge to go to my computer and search through a specific website. And sure enough, as I browsed through the photos I found a tiny, black Pomeranian; which looked like the image of the puppy Molly shared with me earlier.

Spirit often communicates with us during our dream state, while we are sleeping. We are more open and less resistant while we sleep. You can recall your dreams or encounters with loved ones by simply setting an intention to remember your dreams, before falling asleep. And be sure to pay extra special attention to any urges you have when you first wake up, they may be nudges or messages from spirit.

We made arrangements to go see Molly in person, but I was unable to go. My mother was ill and I needed to take care of her. We decided to use Skype so I could see Molly and make sure it was her. I had started to have doubts, even though I followed her instructions. It just seemed too easy and too good to be true. I anxiously awaited David’s call. My phone rang and I could tell from his voice that he knew it was her. David just found out that she had only opened her eyes that morning. Yes, perfect timing. He picked her up and held her up to the screen so I could see her. At first, I just saw this little ball of fur. She was squirming around and I could not feel a connection. And then, she looked directly into the phone screen, her eyes locked with mine. I felt a jolt of emotion and recognition run through my body and tears started streaming down my face. That is when I knew for sure, it was Molly and she could not have done that if she hadn’t opened her eyes earlier in the day.

Later in reflecting back on the experience, I knew my soul had recognized her soul. My body reacted in a way that alerted me to know it was her. I always tell my clients that soul-to-soul recognition is really quite simple. You make a connection by looking into their eyes. Your body will easily recognize a soul that you know, even if the physical form looks different. Sometimes you feel a pull in your heart or stomach, sometimes you get chills, and sometimes your eyes well up and tears just start to flow. The trick is to not think about it, just get out of the way and allow your body to react. I got to experience this first-hand. It truly was amazing. I am still in awe of this experience.

David made arrangements for Molly to come home about a month later. And that is when the story continues. Stay tuned for part 4.

Angels & Animals: Life, Death and Rebirth: Part 2

Part 2 – Molly Returns Home Again: Molly transitioned on December 22, 2008 and by January 2009; she was sending us messages from the other side. The first signs were mostly thoughts. Spirits often think about us and when they do, we have thoughts about them. Most of the time, we believe we are initiating these thoughts all on our own; but often it is our loved ones in spirit that initiate the connection through their own thoughts. We can usually tell that the thoughts originate from them because they just appear out of nowhere or interrupt a stream of unrelated thoughts.

Molly continued communicating to us in a variety of ways. She also showed up in our dreams a couple of times. One of her favorite ways to connect to us was by merging her spirit into the body of one of our current dogs. We had trouble believing what we had just seen the first time it occurred. She popped into Gracie one of our little Pomeranians. Gracie usually enjoyed lying on the cool tile, she never seemed to enjoy being on the sofa. One day, Gracie leapt up on the couch, used her nose to flip all the throw pillows onto the floor; then looked at us and smiled. We knew it was Molly; after that Gracie seemed a little confused as to how she got up on the couch. This happened every few months and it delighted us to know Molly was around. I let her know that we’d love to have her back someday, but now wasn’t a good time. We already had a full house.

Spirits often use the blending or merging technique to communicate with us. They must have permission from the physical animal they choose to merge with and usually are only present for a few moments or until we notice them. They really delight in having a physical experience for a short time and are even happier that they are able to interact with us.

Molly was quiet for a while, actually for a few years. At the beginning of 2015 she started sending thoughts to my husband, David. I told her again, that the time wasn’t right for her to return, but she wasn’t taking no for an answer this time. After that, David saw her in our backyard. Seeing a spirit so solidly doesn’t happen that often, but she really wanted to make her presence known. He then felt her brush up against his legs and bump him, just like she did when she was in physical form. I knew it was time for her to return and told her so. A day later she began communicating with me how to find her. It was easier then I thought it would be, especially when I opened myself up and let her lead the way.

Stay tuned for the next segment of Molly’s story which will detail how she led us to find her and our first meeting. The first photos we saw of her in her new physical suit are attached below.

Angels & Animals: Life, Death and Rebirth

molly backyardMolly Returns Home Again: Molly’s story starts several years ago, around 2003. I received an email with her picture on it that read “7 Year Old Blind Dog Needs a Home”. The story went on to say that Molly’s person became ill, had gone into hospice and could no longer care for Molly. Molly had this big, beautiful smile and I connected to her immediately. I knew she would come to our home eventually, but my husband wasn’t quite ready to add another dog to our family. After seeing several emails over the course of 2 weeks and no one else was interested in giving Molly a home, we went and got her.

We brought her home wondered how we would help acclimate a blind dog to a new home. We led her into our house; she immediately went to work sniffing all around the house and backyard. She sniffed everything. We noticed that she was using her breath to determine how far away objects, walls and furniture were. She knew the layout of the house and backyard after that one day. That was it, she was home.

She really was amazing at how she navigated around the house. She could even jump up on the sofa in one leap and use her nose to flip all the throw pillows off onto the floor, so she had a nice unobstructed place to lie down. She also told me that she wanted a blue sparkly collar. We took her to the store and let her sniff a green, a pink and a blue rhinestone collar. She picked the blue one by placing her paw on it and when we put it on her, she smiled.

When she came to us, she had a pretty bad mouth infection which was diagnosed as lymphoplasmacytic gingivitis. She was allergic to her teeth. We tried for quite a while to help her with medication, but it became necessary to have her teeth removed. The morning of her surgery, we awoke to find her waiting at the garage door next to her leash, ready for us to take her to the dental surgeon and she recovered in record time.

In 2008, she left us. She said it was time for her to merge back into spirit, her body was shutting down. We honored her wishes and helped her cross over. I remember her clearly saying that she would return to us again someday. And that is where this story really begins.

Stay tuned for the next segment of Molly’s story to be posted soon.
