The Dance of Surrender

Hello lovelies! Outside my living room window there is a gentle cool breeze blowing luring me outdoors to experience the last few days of summer. The sun is shining brightly with only a few of the many crape myrtles in my back yard still proudly displaying their white and pink blooms. My magnificent water feature of the Roman Goddess Juturna, is gently playing her soft melody, as the sound of cascading water fills my home. All of my sweet furry babies are napping and off in the distance a neighbor is mowing their yard. Sounds like I am in suburban paradise here hmmm? Well, there is more to the story and here is the Reader’s Digest version.

I find myself working full-time in two worlds. The first world is of business  – a world that I have worked in for nearly 20 years with success. Get up, go to work, come home, and do it again. Kinda like – wash, rinse, repeat…wash, rinse, repeat. The second world is of Spirit – a world of Mediumship, Intuitives, and Animal Communication. A world that has embraced me from the moment that my journey began. Expanding my awareness and horizons with each new incredible opportunity.

My work as an Animal Communicator and Intuitive Medium is the most rewarding gift that I have been fortunate enough to share with the world. I have communicated with a Hedgehog that loves classic rock-n-roll (hey, you gotta love a hedgehog that digs Freddie Mercury!), I have connected loved ones in this physical world to their Spirit Family, and along the way met some of the most incredible, humble, gifted human beings that I am now able to call my friends.

My work as an Intuitive is thriving and very rewarding. However, I often find myself asking “When will I leave my desk job?” Well, I am stubborn…and nervous…and really really not very patient in this area of my life. It comes down to that word..Surrender. Letting go of what I want..Oooo..that means that my hands are free and there is nothing to hold onto!  I need..oh yeah…Surrender. Now breathe. Say it again. Surrender. Breathe. Say it again. Surrender…

I pause with each breath and remind myself of the present moment. That is where all the power to create lies. In this present moment I hear the sound of the cascading water falling outside my window, I see my furry babies contentedly napping, the sun is shining brightly outside my window, and I feel the gentle cool breeze blowing throughout my home. My heart rate begins to slow down as I breathe in this present moment and exhale the word…Surrender.

The Dance of Surrender. My dance, at times, looks like a cha-cha, then a tango, then free-style, and that is all before noon some weeks. However, my dance card has been filled with amazing opportunities where I have surrendered myself to serve. To serve Spirit, to serve my tribe, to serve my clients, and to serve my community. And guess what..I am not a wall-flower anymore..Yep..I am on the dance floor and the Bee-Gees are playing!

My work as an Professional Intuitive is truly a joy. Each day brings so much adventure and intrigue. Getting up in front of an audience, with no clue what you are going to say, only that you trust that the Spirit World be there, takes an enormous amount of Surrender. My question to you is what brings you real joy? Are you doing what makes your heart sing? Are you doing the Dance of Surrender, and if so, what does your dance look like? Hey..I have one more question for you to think about…Wanna Dance?

 

 

Growing Up Medium

Hello Lovelies! I was sitting on my porch having my morning coffee in quiet contemplation this morning. I could hear the birds singing while off in the distance a rooster was crowing. Instantly upon hearing that rooster my mind was flooded with memories of growing up in the Ozark Mountains and the Spirit World that was so much a part of my youth.

I’ve always felt the Spirit World. I remember at the age of two, playing in the floor, and feeling the other side come close to me. Those in the Spirit World became the inspiration of many games that I would play as a toddler. My mother has often told me that I could entertain myself for hours. However, as I grew older, and those in Spirit would gather near me, I would shut my eyes to turn off the connection. I could hear the other side also and that was overwhelming indeed. To say, as a kid, that I was timid of the Spirit World would be an understatement. Spirit never was trying to scare me but my own perception of what was happening did.

Remember drive-in movie theaters? We had one in the town that I grew up in and my Mom was a classic horror movie fan. Many a Saturday night she would drive my sisters and I, in her Chevy Impala, to the local drive in to watch the double feature. I can still feel the cool night air drifting through the valley with the smell of popcorn lingering on the air. All was right with the world until the creature feature started playing. The common phrase in our home was, “don’t let Cindy watch scary movies!” and so, if the movie was scary, then I was paralyzed with fear. Hollywood really does the Spirit World an injustice. Nothing that I have ever experienced, as a medium, has mirrored the extremes of what I so feared as a child.

So growing up an Intuitive Medium…What was it like? Well, I can only give a little of my perspective here. I could “feel” the energy of a room that I walked into. I knew if someone had been fighting, if someone was sad, even if those individuals were no longer in the room. Those upset emotions weren’t mine and I carried them with me until I no longer felt them. I felt concern over how bills would be paid, my grandmother’s health, a stranger’s mood and none of these were matters discussed with me. I just knew and felt way more than I should have. There were times that I could feel a Spirit in the room with me; I could feel that Spirit’s energy. I knew if the Spirit was male or female and saw impressions of how their life was lived before they passed. It was a real part of my childhood until I reached adolescence. I so wanted to fit in; to be accepted. So, I did my best to turn down the dial to the Spirit World. I never fully fit in at school, but, I did manage to turn the volume down to the Spirit World that had been so much a part of my existence.

“Turning the dial down” didn’t mean that all the supernatural experiences in my life stopped completely. Those on the other side always gathered close, around my bed, at night. I tried my very best to ignore them. Dreading turning out the lights. I just didn’t understand what they wanted. That was until about 2007. Enough. Enough with fear and uncertainty. I needed answers and began the journey of finding them not having a clue where to start.

Shortly thereafter a series of amazing synchronistic events unfolded in my life. Relationships began forming and my search for answers were proving fruitful. My mediumship development was just beginning. I was untrained, big time in need of grounding, but thankful.

I now work as a Professional Intuitive Medium and Animal Communicator. It’s beautiful to bring messages of hope to those who have loved ones on the other side. So touching to see and feel the healing take place in the lives of those who are still here in the physical. I couldn’t see this aspect of Mediumship when I was younger. There was a process that needed to unfold, for myself, of acceptance, study, discipline, and love. Love for Spirit, others, and for myself.

So much of my journey hasn’t been about taking a leap of faith but about taking the next step. What’s it like on your journey? Do you allow fear to hold you back? Playing it small never turns out the way you want it to. Be fearless – be strong – be courageous!

New Year’s Intentions for Us and Our Animal Friends

Happy New Year! 2016 is upon us and is sure to be filled with magic and wonder! So many of us naturally set our intentions for the New Year as a way to create and manifest our desires. Have you set and declared your intentions for the New Year yet? Perhaps yours is achieving better health, being of service to others, or awakening to your own spiritual gifts. However, have you ever considered that our animal companions have intentions to declare as well?

Last night, New Years Eve, I was surrounded by my animal companions in a burning bowl ceremony.  I prepared my sacred space and wrote down all that I wanted to release and renew. As I prepared for this ritual it seemed lacking in something. I began to become aware of a loving voice in my awareness, as my animal friends sat by me, – “Listen to us –  we are here to experience this journey with you.”

A sense of wonder swept over my heart! Our animal companions have intentions of their own, that are worthy to be voiced and declared! I listened intently to my sweet furry babies recant to me their soul’s journey. Their lessons learned inspire me to live more consciously in service to others.

I held space for my animal friends as I released what was not for the highest and the best into the fire. Their sweet souls and mine partaking in a sacred ceremony together. How amazing that our animal companions have such a profound effect on our path. Their souls truly give pure love; out of which springs forth new life for a New Year ahead.

I encourage you to listen to your animal companions. Their souls have wisdom and love to give you that knows no bounds. As you set your intentions for 2016, perhaps stop for just a moment and consider your animal friends. They have so much to tell you about their world…and yours!

A little about me….My Journey as an Intuitive…so far!

Hello beautiful light that you are! I wanted to share with you a little about my journey as an Animal Communicator and Intuitive Medium. It’s been an amazing journey so far!

I was born intuitive. I’ve always had the ability to read energy and people. I remember seeing auras and just knowing that I was seeing an emanation of light and energy.  I recall intense feelings, sometimes after meeting a person, that didn’t go away easily. Being shy, I found a strong connection with the animals on my Grandparent’s farm. Their sprawling farm was filled with cows, horses, hogs, chickens, dogs and cats. I loved the animals and being out in nature. I would sit outside and crack walnuts for hours. I would play with my furry and feathered friends and knew them all by name. Being outside, at my Grandparent’s farm, was very enjoyable for me. However, being inside my Grandparent’s house…not so enjoyable.

During the 1970’s my Grandmother provided convalescent care, in her home to elderly people. I remember her taking in at least six beautiful souls. She provided each one, room and board, gave them their medications, and the preacher would stop by for Sunday Services. Her beautiful home was situated in the charming countryside of the Ozarks and had many, many rooms. Lots of bright light filled the house and the smell of home cooked meals always permeated my senses. It was very much a lovely home, but to me, it was the beginning of knowing how different I was.

I was not allowed to go into the part of the house where the “old people” (as my six-year-old self would call them) lived. I knew that they were there and I even knew one man by name…”Happy.” Now Happy, was just his nickname as he was a boxer in his youth, and had been punched so many times, that he was what you call “punch drunk.” But he was very friendly and nice to me. They really all were. But eventually, each soul passed away, and some passed in my Grandparent’s home. I remember my heart racing as I would walk the hallway to the part of the house where the “old people” had lived. My breath becoming short and my already prominent speech impediment becoming increasingly worse. I could sense their presence in the rooms with me. My way of sensing them was that I could feel and hear their Spirits. It was a terrifying experience. As a six-year-old kid all I wanted to do was run but fear had sunk its hooks deep into me. I never tried to communicate with the departed souls, and my religious upbringing would not have permitted that anyway. I did reach out to my immediate family but it was chalked up to me having an over active imagination and thus my perception was invalidated. I continued to experience many other supernatural phenomenon but eventually, I learned how to “turn down” the volume to the Spirit World and tried to fit in as best as I could.

Decades passed until 2008. I would call 2008 the year that my spiritual gifts began to amplify. I could no longer ignore what had always been a part of me. I was guided to take an Animal Communication Course and a few years later started attending a beautiful Mediumship Development Circle. I grew in my confidence and awareness of my spiritual abilities; which no longer could remain dormant.  Coming in contact with like-minded souls, who have had similar life experiences, has been truly healing for me.

I have an Animal Communication and Intuitive Mediumship Practice now. I am blessed with the Spiritual Gifts of Clairaudience (hearing Spirit – both subjectively and objectively) Clairsentience (feeling Spirit) and Clairvoyance (clear seeing) . I’m also a natural Trance Medium who is in the early stages of development for trance. My intuitive work is, without a doubt, the best thing that I’ve ever done! Being able to be a messenger of Spirit is a tremendous blessing and responsibility. What dreams or abilities do you have? Believe in yourself and let your light shine for all to see! I believe in you!

The Pink Cloud – How to Communicate Telepathically with Animals

Hello Beautiful Soul! My name is Cindy Kay Jones and I’m an Animal Communicator and Intuitive Medium living in Oklahoma. One of the many questions that I am asked about Animal Communication is: “How does it work?” Let me briefly explain!

First, think of something simple to say to your animal; like “Hello Fluffy.” Just keep what you are saying simple on your first attempt. Notice that you will be thinking your words. This type of communication will be telepathic-in your mind. Once you have decided what you want to say telepathically-then imagine those words in a pink cloud. See the pink cloud in front of you with your greeting inside and send it to your animal. Now comes an important part of the animal communication process-Listening.

This part of the process requires you to be in a receptive state. Get quiet-tune in to your animal friend. You may telepathically hear your animal’s voice, you may see an image in your mind’s eye, or you may feel the emotion of your animal’s response-whatever you receive-however you receive it-the key is to trust what you get- every time!

Animal Communication is a tremendous blessing to partake in! Communicating with animals, on a soul level, helps to raise the vibration of our planet! Please let me know about your animal communication experiences!

Love and Light,
