Keep Calm! What if COVID-19 (a.k.a. The Coronavirus) is Just a Paradigm Shift?
What if the “Virus” is doing exactly what it is supposed to do? To dismantle which no longer serves us?
I know that it is hard right now, but it is VERY important to NOT get swept up in the panic and anxiety surrounding what is going on in the world around us right now. The fear and panic is manifesting low (negative or heavy) vibrational energy. PLEASE DO NO ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE DRAGGED DOWN. It is important that we all hold ourselves at a HIGHER VIBRATIONAL LEVEL. What if the “Coronavirus” is really just a paradigm shift? A paradigm shift is defined as “an important change that happens when the usual way of thinking, or doing something, is replaced by a new and different way.” What if this shift will bring about changes within us, within our society and even within our planet? What if this shift or change will make us look at the world around us differently and as a result we will go about our daily lives differently? What if this shift helps us to shed what no longer serves us, or our highest good? What if this shift teaches us to get back to basics and live a simpler life? What if this shift opens our eyes to the idea that sharing makes more sense than trying to be successful on our own? This isn’t a bad thing, it is just different than what we are used to. What if all of this “down-time” we are experiencing is giving us time to hit the “reset button” along with time to think and reflect? Change can be scary, but that is why it is important that we keep our vibrational levels high (positive). We must not react from a place of fear, but from a place of compassion. Things like war, violence, racism, greed and hatred are NOT the answer. We cannot solve any problem if we remain at a low vibration. If you want to do your part in smoothing the transition that we are currently experiencing, raise your vibration.
In recent days, I have been amazed at how many (self-proclaimed) Consciously Awaken people (who identify with being lightworkers, star seeds, earth angels, empaths, or healers, etc.) are spreading “fear” about the Coronavirus, especially on social media, at a rapid rate! Some of these individuals specialize in energy work, others in homeopathic modalities, others in crystal healing, etc., – things that more enlightened people do or believe in, yet they are giving energy to, or really helping to fuel, the chaos and negativity associated with this “virus” and adding to the darkness, which is something an enlightened, or conscious person should recognize.
As people awaken or become conscious (others use the term “ascend”) we learn that our purpose (which can come in many forms or jobs here in the physical world) is to change the world (for the better) by raising first our vibration and then that of others, and in return the vibration on the planet where we live. (The world is not going to end, it is just changing and we need to learn to adapt.)
As people awaken, they start to understand that everything is energy. And just like we learned in school: it cannot be created nor destroyed, it just changes forms. You and me, as well as everything around us, is made up of energy. Positive energy vibrates at a higher frequency and negative energy vibrates at a lower frequency. Energy (positive or negative) can also manifest depending on what energy or attention is given to it.
In recent days American health officials have warned that the Coronavirus is likely to spread in communities in the United States. There are plenty of (un-checked) lists circulating on the internet as to what people “should be buying” right now. In some areas in the country, some store shelves are empty. On the internet I’ve heard (Consciously-minded) people panicking about not being able to find surgical masks at their local stores and complaining why the stores didn’t stock such items ahead of time. I’ve seen others tag numerous family members on social media posts in the hopes that they are getting the message that the virus is coming. Then there are the numerous articles and opinions circulation that haven’t exactly been fact-checked that people are sharing and re-posting. Do you see how these actions are adding to the fear?
No matter your thoughts on what is going on in the world right now with this virus or what may happen, (i.e. schools or places of business may close, curfews may be instated, make-shift clinics will be popping up, food and supplies may not make it over from other countries, or maybe that this is a tool being used to divide people, it’s a paradigm shift, a bioweapon or that it has to do with our government controlling us here in the US, or it has to do with politics or our relationship with China, or that maybe the government/pharmaceutical industry is trying to push vaccines, etc.,), you aren’t consciously awake if you are going off the deep end right now! Snap out of it! Focus on how you can help this situation. If you are Reiki attuned, send healing energy to those who are ill, or send protective energy to those who aren’t infected. Pray for peace. Be an example of “love” as love is the opposite of fear. If you work with any sort of healing modalities, keep using them and refining your craft. Heck, educate more people along the way on alternative ways that they can stay healthy. (You get the picture.) Even if you aren’t 100% sure how to assist others in healing or protection, intention is everything. And no matter what happens in the coming weeks or months, be ready to walk through the fire with your head high and your shoulders back, connected to your Higher Self/God/Source if need be, but in the meantime, don’t add to the panic and negativity that is spreading at a rapid rate. Shine your light to combat the darkness.
I am sharing this post with you so you can see how much those of us who are sensitive try to balance so much all at once while trying to act like nothing behind the scenes is going on. As well as how Spirit can help you out with even the little things.
Last night our school district put on a fundraiser where the Harlem Wizards performed and did some interactive activities with the audience. A day or two before the event, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go as large crowds can still be exhausting to the Empath in me no matter how I protect myself. I asked that, “My family only still go to this event if we have a fun time and make a happy memory by going.”
Last night I got selected from the audience to play a game called “Shazam” which was like “Name that Tune” for theme songs to old T.V. shows. They gave a practice song at the beginning of the game. It was the theme song to the show “Fresh Prince of Bell Air.” I saw the top half of Will Smith’s body dressed in 90s garb with his hat jumping out at me. I said, “DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince of Bell Air.” (I gave more than I needed to, but you get the idea of how the game works.
One of my children were also called up to play along. He was placed in front of a basketball hoop. For every song that I named correctly, he was going to get to move closer to the basket in the hopes that he’d be close enough to make a basket and the end of the game and win a prize.
So much went through my head in a matter of seconds, which seemed much longer as I was taking care of so much at one time in my head. First, I was trying to listen to the directions that I was being given in front of a gymnasium full of people. At the same time, I threw up a request for some divine assistance. I asked that “I get most of the answers right and that I not make a fool of myself in front of this gym full of people.”
Winning the game was furthest from my mind as I don’t think that even registered at that point. I was more concerned about following directions and not falling flat in front of a gym full of people. Technically we (those of us who have a strong gift of intuition) aren’t to use our “gifts” to win things that we benefit from (you don’t see a bunch of intuitives hitting it big in Vegas now, do you?), but I wasn’t asking to “win” just act with “dignity and grace” in front of the crowd.
When it registered that my son (who doesn’t like to be the center of attention) was also being called up and that he was going to have to make a basket in the game (and that basketball isn’t exactly his specialty, let alone in front of a gym full of people), I sent up another request that “I can do my best at this game so that he can get as close as possible to the basket.” Again, not for the sake of winning, but to spare him from not making it with all eyes on him. I asked that “he please have assistance in making the shot when it comes time.”
Playing “Shazam” with “Swoop” 1.18.2020
During all of this, the MC was doing his spiel and giving me and the crowd directions. (I was to relay on the audience to help me with answers if I needed assistance.) I was trying to keep one eye on my son but yet be alert enough to know what I was supposed to be doing, all while sending up a few requests to the other side…and then I felt it…the shade being thrown at me by two female individuals who were to the right of me in the audience, toward the center, in the bleachers. While being told where to stand by the MC, I asked that I not absorb the negativity that they were sending in my direction and that it be reflected back to them. (Which really, wasn’t the right thing for me to do. The protecting of my energy was, but what I should have done was ask that the negative energy that they were sending my way be turned into positive energy to help somebody who needed it.) Under the circumstances I didn’t think that far or rationally.
Then the songs started and the game began and images started popping into my head. (The gift of Clairvoyance.) The first song was from the show “Golden Girls.” I got an image of the kitchen table and wall paper that was in the show. (Got that one right.) Next was the theme song from the show “Friends.” I first saw some letters that I couldn’t make out, and then some dots between the letters jumping out at me and then I saw the word “Friends.” (Got that one.) Then the theme song from “Full House” played. I saw a gray town house and then I saw hilly streets and a trolley, like you would find in San Francisco. (I got that one correct as well.) Next, the theme song from the show “Cheers” played. When the song started, I felt like I was sitting at a bar and looking at the door. First a man walked in who I didn’t recognize and then as I was blurting out the answer, I saw the character “Norm” pop up.
The next song, I had issues with but looking back, images were given to me. I saw a bring wall, a sidewalk and it was dark like it was at night. I also saw some kind of a moving line or conveyor belt. I knew the images that I was seeing, but I couldn’t interpret them. I tried asking the audience for the answer but due to the acoustics in the gym, I was unable to make out what they were saying. Time ran out and I didn’t get that answer correct. The answer was “Lavern & Shirley.” As I said, the images were right, I just didn’t know how to use them. In the beginning of the show, Lavern and Shirley are shown walking down the street arm in arm, at night, alongside a row of brownstones singing “schlemiel, schlimazel, hasenpfeffer incorporated!” They also worked at a beer factory in the show which was also shown at the beginning of each show.
The final song was from the show “Different Strokes.” I got an image of my children watching TV in my family room. In the image the TV was on and I saw the back of my kids heads. My kids recently were into watching Different Strokes and the Facts of Life. (One played right after the other.) I first answered “Facts of Life” based on the image I got but then quickly changed my answer to “Different Strokes.”
I got all but one answer correct. My son was able to take multiple steps closer to the basket to attempt his shot. I am happy to say that he made it!!!
It wasn’t until later in the evening when I got home that it hit me. I had assistance from the other side. (I still get “wowed” when this happens.) What I asked for help with was granted. I asked to not look like a complete fool and for my son to make the basket. Both were a success. More importantly we had a great time and made a great family memory.
Today is the 28th of December. By the time every year, I am usually over the holidays as well as my holiday decorations. By the 28th and sometimes even sooner, I am traditionally ready to start taking all of my Christmas down and at least throwing everything in a pile in the basement (out of sight, out of mind) if not completely packed and put away. This year is different. Noticeably different. Though there was an extremely short amount of time between Thanksgiving and Christmas on the calendar this year, only three weeks, things weren’t decorated as long as in previous years. I noticed that it didn’t so much have to do with the decorations themselves as the feeling I had inside that I didn’t want to let go of.
This year, as in many years in the past, we hosted Christmas day at our house. Our guest list was expanded with some extended family who we haven’t celebrated Christmas Day with in the past. Some of these relatives had never been to our home before, let alone for Christmas. This was also a year when we had two people pass on my husband’s side. To say that things were different this year, was a bit of an understatement.
Christmas day turned out to be wonderful. There was a lot of positive energy around the gathering. The gathering felt light. Everyone was on their best behavior. Nobody seemed to be walking on egg shells. I could also feel some past loved ones pop in from time to time and also participate in the day. Not to sound too mushy, but you could almost feel “love” in the air. You could really feel the Magic of Christmas. Everyone seemed appreciative and respectful of one another. No issues, minimal drama and just a good old family gathering.
Three days later, I can still feel the positive energy in the air and I also feel contentment. Contentment like I don’t want to let go of this feeling. I feel that once I let it go – the feeling, the holidays, we are on to the next thing or things that life throws our way.
I notice my decorations that are still up and think to myself, “Should I start taking them down?” I thought, “No, I like this feeling, just leave it be. If I keep things the way that they are, we don’t need to move on to what is in store next for us. Changes within our family. Perhaps some illness? Maybe a location change? Personal changes? Professional changes? Maybe even world changes? As they say, “Nothing is the same in a year.”
And after the holidays, we flip the calendar to a new year. Though I know that I can’t stop time or prevent things from changing, I wanted to savior the feeling that I feel. They say that the Universe moves when you move. Meaning you need to move to make things happen. If I keep our holiday stuff out, perhaps I can purposely stay stuck for a few more days.
Along my awakening journey I have learned that most dis-ease, body ailments, aches and pains that we experience in our bodies here in the physical world are related to our frame of mind and emotional state. (Louise Hay’s Book, “Heal Your Body” is a great resource for this topic.) I had an experience yesterday that is a perfect example of this that I would like to share with you.
As a reminder, the stories and topics that I share are as I have observed them, as I have lived them, and as they have happened to me, along my journey. They are not intended to hurt anybody and they are told as I have experienced them. I have also done my best to protect the identity of the subjects in my writings. If you find yourself reading something and suddenly question: “Is that about me?” If that is the case it probably is to some degree because there’s absolutely some kind of lesson in there for you.
This post is a bit long, but I think that the back story is important to share to bring light as to why my throat started to hurt.
As it relates to this story, parents all have different parenting styles and we all handle issues with our children as we see fit. In our house when my children have an issue with another child (which doesn’t happen very often) we start by addressing the issue in only the four walls of our house and try to talk through and rectify the issues that way. (I don’t bother my children’s school with the issue and I don’t reach out to other parents immediately.) If things are more serious or the same thing(s) keeps happening between one of my children and another child, (and it needs to be something big or my child’s reaction shows me concern) I will bring it to the attention of the other child’s parent. I’ve only had to bring up issues with other parents a few times so far in my children’s adolescent lives. Honestly I can count on one hand the number of times and I think I am up to maybe 4. In the times I have had to reach out to another parent I have presented the issues as a “heads up” to the parent to let them know that an incident took place. I don’t ask for anything in return. No even an apology to my kid. Just simply a heads up. I also ask that parent to let ME know what role my child played in the incident and to please let me know if I need to address anything with my child.
The times that I have been contacted by another parent about concerns or incidents that my children have been involved in, I thank the parent for reaching out to me and let them know that I will be addressing the issue with my child. I then sit down with my child and ask them for their side of the story.
As with anything, there are always three sides to any story…What this one thinks happens. What the other person think happens. And then what REALLY happened…. We all have our different perception or interpretation as to what is going on around us. In some cases one person might be in the wrong in their actions. In other cases both parties might be right or wrong in their actions.
If a parent contacts me about my child, I sit down with my child and get their side of the story and decide whether they were correct or not correct in their behavior. Then I circle back with the parent who contacted me and at times it has been appropriate that my child apologize to the other child. In our home we tend to “make things right” with the situation or other person and try to move on, even if we (or my children) feel that they didn’t wrong anyone. It is easier to just be a good human and to apologize and to move on.
My child (as well as our family) has tolerated the behavior of another child in our neighborhood for nearly the last six years. The list of things that this child has done that we have tolerated is a mile long and ranges from things like damaging our property, using inappropriate words and comments for his age, physically striking my children with other toys, and the best was the time that our family came home one day to find that he let himself into our house (and our dog running amok around the neighborhood). Though many of these things have continued to happen, the ones that I listed above all happened before this kid was 8 years old. (He is now 11.)
Over the years, after such incidents, I have kept my mouth shut and I didn’t follow up with the parents of the child because my gut feeling told me if I bring anything up, that it would cause bad blood with this family. My thought was by keeping my mouth shut and tolerating this kid that I was being a cordial and considerate neighbor. (As many of you read this, I know you are thinking, WTF? Why didn’t you say anything?)
Fast forward to less than two months ago, there were multiple verbal instances between my child and this kid and on the final time other parents were witness to it. Since it was the third or fourth time that it happened and I could see that it was wearing on my child, I chose to reach out to the mother of the child via text.
The mother responded quickly and thanked me for letting her know. She did allude to the fact that her child’s behavior had to do with a text message that a third party kid sent her kid, but she said she would address it.
OK, fine. My thought was “let’s move on.” I’ve brought it to her attention. She’ll handle it her way. We are done here. (I was actually surprised at the quick response as other parents have warned me that they never get anywhere with her when they have raised issues in the past.) I felt satisfied in thinking that this was a done issue.
Then just this week, my child (who is generally on the more timid side) comes home fuming, in tears and is looking to punch walls and to kick things. He tells me that “he can’t take it anymore” and describes what this kid, the ringleader, said on the bus to my child and got others to join in as well. My child said that the ringleader and another child were poking at him the most, though others were also chiming in. My child does lack courage when standing up to others and it is something that we are still working on, but I could tell that this incident shook him. He proceeded to tell me that this has previously gone on (since the last incident that I let the mother know about) and I could tell that he had had it and that the ring-leading child’s repeated actions were affecting my child’s mental and emotional state.
I waited a few hours (I always feel that a cool down period is important) and I reached out to the children’s parents who seemed to cause my child the most distress with one being the ringleader’s mother and then to another mother who I know, to make them aware of the incident. I didn’t ask for anything in return, I just wanted them to be aware.
One mother responded back to me. She expressed concern and said that she’d be addressing it with her child. She also offered to have her child come over and to apologize. The other… the ringleader’s mother, wrote back a curt message that evening. (Let’s add here that as an Intuitive Emapth, I can feel the tone of words that are written, not just spoken as well as have the ability to sense the feelings and energy of other people.)
The next morning while heading to the bus stop, I see the ringleaders’ mother running with her dog. She sees me, looks the other way and takes off. Later that morning, I get a lengthy text from her. Basically she thinks what her kid said/did to my kid in the previous incident a few months ago as well as the other day isn’t that big of a deal. Her older kid and his friends have done it before and she doesn’t think it is that bad. Boys will be boys. Kids will be kids. (She based this on the fact that she has experience with older kids.) She then spun things and went on to say that I don’t care for her son (well, YOU the reader of this post saw my above list) and made him out to be the victim. She then went on to say that she knows her child and she will always support him. The last line of her message was “Have a nice day!” (In her defense we are I Mercury Retrograde.)
Oh! The things I could respond back with! I was seething. The things I have witnessed her child do… The complaints I have from at least six other families who live nearby who have shared their experiences with this family and this specific kid… The things that other parents at school have mentioned to me about her son…..
I could feel my throat starting to get scratchy as my thoughts were becoming inflamed. I thought, “Great! I’m getting sick!”
I battled with myself as to what my next move should be. Should I respond back?
I thought, why bother? It is going to fall on deaf ears, no responsibility is going to be taken, some people have to be right, they don’t have compassion and they are self-absorbed. I felt that if I go back to her with anything, she’ll just keep throwing it back this way and that her anger and negativity are just going to escalate. Furthermore, if someone has traits they don’t like about themselves, they are reminded of them when an Empath comes along as we reflect their “shadow side” back to them. (I AM an Empath!) Empaths tend to highlight and outline the traits of another person by not playing into lies, behaviors and narcissism.
I also struggled with the fact that my energy isn’t worth sacrificing and really needs to be protected. (People should protect their own energy, but for an Empath, it is even more crucial to do so.) Her lower vibration is just going to bring mine down to her level and the more I interact with her, the more this is going to happen.
And lastly, I feel that somewhere in this mess there is a bit of a “test” for me along my journey. Perhaps a test in keeping my mouth shut regarding things that I know. (See my post about “Spirit Gossip” and getting intuitive information on people who irritate my spirit.)
By dinner time my throat was getting worse and I started to take proactive measures with essential oils and elderberry syrup in the event that I was getting sick.
After dinner was done and the kids were off doing their own thing, I went into my office and I decided to “document” some of the recent instances that my child has had with the ringleader. (A few mothers who I know suggested that I do this in case these incidents keep happening with this kid.) As I was documenting, I also got the other information I had on this child out of my system. A bit of a purge shall we say?
I realized that after I was done documenting and purging, that my throat was back to normal. (Perhaps a reflective crystals ball in my window as well as my selenite wand did a little assisting as well.) Out of curiosity, I did get out my “Heal Your Body” book by Louise Hay to see what the cause or thought pattern of a sore throat or even throat meant.
Per the book, problems with the throat have to do with “The Inability to speak up for one’s self” and “Swallowed anger.” And a sore throat is associated with “Holding in angry words.” Hmmm, sounds like that hit yesterday on the head!
Today, I woke up with no issues in my throat. I also have a feeling of contentment. I know that I did the right thing by not engaging any longer with the mother. I also know that there is more to come and that I should just stay in my lane. The Universe will be taking care of the rest. #SpiritGossip #SoulContracts
So this may sound a bit nuts to some, but I wanted to share something that took place yesterday. (I’m sure there is a lot of stuff that sounds crazy in my blog if you comb through it.) Yesterday was Halloween and here in the Midwest where I live, we experienced unseasonable snow, sleet and 30-degree temps on a day when kids like to go door to door for trick-or-treating.
This year, I kicked up my outdoor Halloween décor a notch and I included a lot of outdoor lights. Something that I haven’t really done in the past for Halloween. I have had issues in the recent week with all of the rain we’ve had (we got 4 inches one evening alone) as well as the snow, tripping the GFCI outlet outside and my lights not staying on. I felt a little bummed that I decorated for Halloween and it was a possibility that the lights might not stay on for trick-or-treaters. (I know, sounds selfish.)
On Halloween morning, while sipping on my first cup of coffee, I went outside to inspect my lights. After kicking snow off of some of the plugs (I learned online that I should have wrapped these, oops!) and resetting my GFCI outlet a number of times, I got everything to light up. It was before 7AM but I didn’t care. I thought if they stay on all day and make it through the trick-or-treaters, that I’d be satisfied. I sent up a little request to the Universe to “Please keep my lights on.”
Well, within an hour, they were out again. Ugh! I went outside again and messed with things and eventually got them on again. Once they were on, I re-phrased my request to “Please keep my lights on until after trick-or-treating is over this evening.” (Mind you with all of the snow, I wasn’t sure how short lived trick or treating might be on our block.)
To my surprise, we DID have a great turnout for trick-or-treating despite the weather. Our trick-or-treating hours ran from 4pm until 7pm. Half-way through the evening while handing out candy, I realized that my lights did not so much as flicker. (Whew!)
Once the trick-or-treating subsided, I went outside in the cold to take a few photos of my décor. Once I was done, I walked up my front walk toward the front door and bam! Just like that, I heard the GFCI plug switch off and everything went dark as I stood on my front walk. My first reaction was to go to the outlet and reset it. But then I paused. And honestly I had a calmness come over me when I realized…. I asked Spirit to keep my lights on until trick-or-treating was over for the evening and it just ended. And the lights did stay on until the end. As I smiled to myself, I felt smiles around me. Even though it was a trivial request in the grand scheme of things, Spirit was there to assist me and kept its end of the bargain.
I don’t mean any disrespect with the above title, but I took the work “fun” out of the word “funeral” as a confirmation of the events that I had witnessed over the past few days.
I originally posted this to my Instagram account, but I feel the nudge to post it here as well:
On our way home yesterday from a #family #funeral I looked in the back seat where my husband’s suit jacket was hanging and saw the funeral procession car sticker folded in half with the word #fun staring at me. We don’t often associate a time of mourning to be “fun” but I thought to myself for a moment…there WERE uplifting, and heartwarming moments during the past two days that put a smile on my face.
Moments like these bring people together. My husband and I met relatives we didn’t know that we had. We reconnected with others who we should have never had space between. I was able to deliver some short, simple, yet healing messages to some who needed to hear certain things. Others were able to release burdens and emotional knots. I felt forgiveness between some people. Love is the highest form of energy, and at this sad time, I felt it radiating all around. As my husband and I left the funeral luncheon, there was such a feeling of peace and contentment. ♥️✨🌹
I had a situation occur just this past weekend that reminded me that clairvoyant images can be metaphors and that those visions are necessarily to be taken literally all of the time.
I am Clairvoyant. Clairvoyance is the psychic sense of sight. It literally means “clear seeing.” A Clairvoyant can see things from both the past as well as the future.
The other night was our last night in a hotel room during an out-of-town stay. The room was cool and the T.V. was on in the background. While drifting off to sleep, I got a vision of our house back at home. Because I was falling asleep, I felt like this was a dream. In my vision, the garage door was left wide open. As I saw this, I felt a knot in my stomach and some adrenaline shoot through my body as we have been gone for two days now and the thought of leaving my house wide-open like that made me feel very uncomfortable.
In the vision, I walked through the open garage and into our house. I looked around and saw that our house looked ransacked and our television was gone. I recall that I made the kids go outside and wait and then I walked alongside some policemen to evaluate what else had happened or was taken from inside my home. The vision ended there.
After the vision, (my eyes wide open at this point) I said an extra prayer of protection for our home. I told myself that if our garage was open for two days that one of our neighbors would have called or texted me – hopefully.
After being asleep for a few hours, I woke in the middle of the night to what I thought was a car alarm going on and off a few times. I remember feeling groggy. I also remember visualizing my husband laying in the bed next to me (which he was because we had our kids with us) with his car keys in his pocket and him laying on them, making the panic alarm go off and on. I then drifted back to sleep.
The next morning, we get up and I have a cup of coffee and we hit the road. (My husband found some Starbucks coffee in the hotel and brought it up to the room. I don’t drink Starbucks coffee very regularly. I find it to be too strong for me, but when that is all there is, you make do.)
As we are leaving, we head to the parking garage with the kids and throw our luggage into the back of his vehicle. As he put the key in the ignition, I see him looking at his dashboard funny and I ask if he has enough gas? He replies “yes” but then I still see him still eyeing the dashboard funny. I then look over and see that the dashboard reads something about the anti-theft devise was detected because of an attempt to break-in. We look at each other and think, Oh! wow! I think we both thought that because it said “attempt” that nothing had really happened to his vehicle the evening before. He claimed that the vehicle was locked all night and I was pretty sure that I had heard him lock things up before we left the vehicle the last time.
As we pull out of the parking garage, I started to feel anxious, I blamed it on too much caffeine in the Starbucks coffee that I just had. Then… about 15 min later, I look down at his console. He normally has a few dollars of quarters sitting there for parking purposes. I notice there was just one sitting there. I asked him if he took or used the quarters and he said no. He then asked if I did. I had not. I then checked the glove box and the console compartment. The glove box looked untouched, but the center console looked like someone “swished” things around as everything looked disheveled but we didn’t notice anything actually missing. In my mind, I kept seeing a male hand in the vehicle.
Then, like a ton of bricks, it hits me!
I had the vision of my house being robbed last night and then this happened. The house was just symbolism or a metaphor. Perhaps the garage door being open was also symbolism for the vehicle being unlocked? And my TV being taken was a metaphor for our property or something that was ours or of value. Wow!! I had also recalled the sound of the car alarm in the middle of the night. My husband said that he didn’t hear anything, but he sleeps through anything. I haven’t had a chance to ask if anyone else staying at the hotel (we were there with a group we know) had heard anything or not. (The night before I had heard singing in the street below us in the middle of the night but nobody else in our group had heard it. I do have clairaudient abilities, but that isn’t the focus of this blog post.)
When we arrived home, I quickly went into the house to see if anything was out of place or gone. Everything was just how we left it two days before. I was reminded that images and visions aren’t always to be taken literally and that sometimes the images that I get are metaphors for something else.
Here is one Example How I use Mirrors to Deflect Negative “Stuff” or Bad Vibes Away from Me and My Home
I have three mirrored balls on display in the front of my house. To most, they probably just look like lawn ornaments, but they really have a purpose for being there.
As a reminder, the stories and topics that I share are as I have observed them, as I have lived them, and as they have happened to me, along my journey. They are not intended to hurt anybody and they are told as I have experienced them. Without my experiences, I wouldn’t be where I am now. If you find yourself reading something and suddenly question: “Is that about me?” If that is the case it probably is to some degree because there’s absolutely some kind of lesson in there for you.
Bad vibes such as negativity, bitterness and envy are everywhere and can’t always be avoided. As my gifts and sensitivities have increased, I have noticed that negative energy affects me more and more. As I have learned some tips and tricks that have helped me along the way and I have shared them with others in this blog, as well as in different social media groups. Today I am going share with you how mirrors have helped my personal space.
A few years ago, I went to have a reading done from my regular, go-to gal, and she picked up on some negative energy that was coming into my home (also known as a “Psychic Attack”) from a neighbor who lived across the street from me. A psychic attack is when someone intentionally or unintentionally directs harmful energy (either mentally or physically) at someone else. This usually happens while they are in a state of anger, jealousy, envy or hate.
Symptoms of a psychic attack can include: Aches, pains and/or migraines; Feeling angry at others or yourself for no logical reason; Feeling drained; Lack of memory and concentration; Nightmares; Panic Attacks; Pressure in your chest or in your third eye chakra; and/or sensing negative energy around you
I went through the neighbors who lived across from my house and described them. Through my descriptions and the information that the intuitive was receiving, we figured out which neighbor it was. (I wasn’t surprised.) The Intuitive suggested that I put a mirror on the wall that faces her house, across from the window, to reflect the energy that was coming in. Another alternative that she suggested was to place a compact mirror in the window and have it face outward.
I took this advice seriously. At the time of this reading, I was at the beginning of my Awakening Journey and my body and health never felt right. I figured it can’t hurt and what do I have to lose? I tired and I tried to decorate the room that faced this particular neighbor time and again with a mirror on the wall, but it never seemed to feel quite right to me. I’d re-arrange the furniture in the room time and time again, trying to get the room to accommodate a mirror. I also explored the idea of putting a mirror on a stand and on a table that would reflect the negative energy back out. When that wasn’t coming together, I looked into getting some sort of mirror that I could hang in the window, but I figured that would look odd when looking at the house from the outside so I gave up on that idea.
In the meantime, through other energy work sessions that I had done, this particular neighbor kept coming up. In one secession it was explained to me that the back pain that I was experiencing had to do with the “back-stabbing” that this particular neighbor was doing to me. Another time the topic of psychic attack came up and this particular neighbor came up as the person who was behind it.
Then one day, about a year after being advised to reflect the negative energy out of my home, it hit me! Why couldn’t I put something outside that would reflect the energy? Realistically it probably isn’t a bad idea to put such mirrors reflecting all around the perimeter of my house, they do get pricey, so I figured that I would start with the part that faced the neighbor. I found some mirrored spheres and put them in a fountain that I used as a flower bed. It is raised up in front of my window of the particular room that was allowing this energy into my home. Ever since then, the energy of this particular neighbor has no longer bothered me and the feeling in the rooms that face her house are much lighter.
I witnessed something last week that reminded me that if we listen to our inner voice (Spirit, or Higher Self), and if we pay attention to the signs around us, we can use both as hints on the road map of life here in the physical world.
Before I dive into this story, I want to remind you that the stories and topics that I share here in my blog and in my other writings, are as I have observed them, as I have lived them, and as they have happened to me, along my journey. They are not intended to hurt anybody and they are told as I have experienced them. I do my best to protect the identity of the subjects in my writings. If you find yourself reading something and suddenly question: “Is that about me?” If that is the case it probably is to some degree because there’s absolutely some kind of lesson in there for you. In the case of this story, I do need to provide a few extra details about the subjects in order for you to understand the story, as I have lived it.
One of my children is involved with a local spots organization and as a whole it is a great organization to belong to, but just like anything else, it takes only a few bad (toxic) apples to spoil the bunch. Recently, there has been a family in our organization who has caused headaches for the coaching staff, spread negativity and proved their dishonestly over and over again, at least through my intuitive, empathic eyes. (I discuss how you can protect your own energy from toxic people in my Coffee Conversation and Transformation blog in this post.) At times, I also question if I am the only one seeing this crap, being too sensitive, or if others notice and pick up on it as well. And if they are noticing, are they okay with it? Do they agree with it? Do they see nothing wrong with it?
Time and time again I do second guess the information that I receive through my gifts. (I don’t actively read people I come in contact with, but I do tend to receive information on people who irritate my spirit. Those who irritate my spirit actually teach me something. Sometimes about myself, sometimes on how to translate different energies that I feel, sometimes to show me how far I have come along on my path. Other times “irritation” comes over me because it is a nudge to deliver a message to someone.) In this case, as recently as last week, I was starting to question my own thoughts towards the family that I describe as toxic. I was wondering if maybe I am too over sensitive and that these people really aren’t that bad? Maybe I’m just a b*tch and I am the crazy one here and everyone else is okay with their behavior?? As I am thinking this, I am in my car and pull up to a stop light. As I am sitting there, I hear, “watch and observe.” I took the message as watch and observe everyone around me, and not anybody in particular
As the week went on, I kept seeing similar vehicles around town just like what the family I have been second guessing myself on drives. Not just once or twice, but many, many times. It was never their vehicle or them in it, but a similar make, model and color. Towards the end of the week, it was almost comical how many vehicles I saw that matched theirs. This has happened to me before, when I see signs and symbols and a person pops into my head. I have learned to simply send love and light or to say a prayer for that person to give them whatever they need at that moment. A few times when I saw the similar vehicles, I DID send love and light to the family. We never know what battles people are dealing with behind closed doors.
I showed up to the next sporting event still wondering if I am wrong for what I think, feel and sense about these people. Before things got started, the mother chatted with a group of us and the conversation is light and airy. Again, I started to think, “Maybe I’m just crazy?” Maybe I am the one with the issue and is she really is not that bad? Maybe I am being too judge-y? But then I did notice that when I tried to engage in conversation, I found myself shutting down and not able to contribute to the conversation or make any eye contact. I also noticed that my body was always turned sideways away from the mother and the rest of the (extended) family. (As a reminder, Empaths shut down around inauthentic people.)
We made it through the game that day. The next day we sat through another game. The family was socially quieter and more to themselves, though the mother didn’t have any issues telling our coaches that they were in the wrong when it came to how they instructed her child on the field that day. I continued to be my usual self at the games and chatted as I normally did with those around me. I did find myself watching and observing more, but nothing earth shattering to make rhyme or reason out of took place.
By the third and final day, I had sort of forgotten about the whole “watch and observe” message. Two games took place back to back. After each game an MVP award was awarded to a player on each team. While in some cases it is an honor to get an MVP award because the child who is awarded it truly DID go above and beyond to help his team out, overall the MVP award is a joke and a money maker for an outside company whose goal is to gather a solicitation list of kids and their families together to go, play and spend a lot of money at Disney. What I’m trying to say is that the award doesn’t necessarily hold much water, but it can be a proud moment for a player and their family. Because two games were played that day, two awards were given out – each time to a kid who wasn’t related to the family that I have had in question. And nobody else on the sidelines around me questioned who was picked.
After the second award was given out, the family didn’t hide their dismay. Their body language showed it. You heard them grumbling, and myself, being energy sensitive, felt the discontent and anger from them come over me like a tidal wave.
One relative, in a loud and angry tone, (in front of other parents and players) went up to our head coach to voice her dismay that the child related to her didn’t win the MVP award when he should have. She claimed that we only won because of that specific child. (Mind you the kid did a better job in the first game and this is after the second game.) The mother also chimed in during the confrontation. The first relative continued to throw down more anger at the coach and then walked away, but he called her back to finish the conversation that she started. The rest of the family/extended family just stood off to the side staring at the confrontation. No attempt to pull their people back or to talk them off of the ledge. As everyone waited around and gathered their belongings, the team and parents were grouped all together in one cluster, and these other people were off in a corner, arms crossed and pissed off faces, all by themselves.
It took me a day or so to process all that had taken place. I watched and observed and the truth came out from the question that had been weighing on my mind. Not just for me to see, but for multiple people around me to see as well.
Some time had passed until we had another game. (A cooling off period was probably a good idea.) This family, as well as their extended family, showed up to the next game like nothing ever happened. (Personally, I feel that one’s apology should be as LOUD as one’s disrespect. And in this case, the apology needed to go to the organization as a whole since so many people where witness to the confrontation.)
I share this experience with you to remind you to watch for the signs and symbols that are around you. Look for patterns. Look for things that keep crossing your path. Also, we all have that little voice in our head that offers us advice — if we choose to listen to it. I say, listen to it. That voice doesn’t lie. And if you have something weighing on your mind, ask Spirit to show you an answer or to give you clarity. If you are paying attention, you will get an answer by observing what you hear and see.
