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!

Animal Soul Contracts

Greetings to you friend! I’ve always considered animals as my friends, as many of you probably do as well. So it’s quite natural for me to consider them not only as friends but as family members. I share the adventurous happenings of my days with my furry babies and I listen intently to their wonderful stories as well!

So many of us that love, respect, and consider our furry babies as family members know how painful it is after the death of a pet. The process of dealing and coping with the death process is different for everyone. Animal Communication can provide a new spiritual outlook and resource in the stages of pet loss grief.

Animals have a soul. They are on a journey, in this physical world, as are humans. Animals sign soul contracts, before they incarnate, to experience everything in this physical world, that they have agreed to. There are different types of soul contacts as I will discuss below.

The first type is called Karmic. A Karmic Contract affects destiny within one incarnation. A Karmic Contract is limited to that particular lifetime and can still be a segment of a larger soul commitment for multiple reincarnations within an owners life.  An example would be a therapy dog that has the ability to sense seizures or trauma in their person’s aura or body. This is an experience that would affect their human companion’s destiny. The animal karma (or soul’s choice) facilitated that outcome of the interaction with that human. The number of agreements made between a pet’s soul and their person determine the quantity of a pet’s past lives an animal will share with their companion in a singe life or throughout multiple lifetimes.

There are several types of pet spiritual arrangements that an animal can configure in their animal process:

A. Over-Souling: Is when the late pet contracts to direct a new or former pet from a higher perspective.

B. Walk In Contract: Is when the deceased pet’s energy moves into another pet’s body that has agreed to relocate when the departed pet’s energy reincarnates.

C. Soul Braiding: Is a shared contract when the deceased pet returns as a roommate within a current pet’s body.

D. New Body Contract: The pet’s energy that passed returns in a new physical form.

I talk with clients, every week, that have a pet that has crossed over into Spirit. I assure them, and you, that our furry babies life force energy and love lives on. There are those skeptics out there that scratch their head at the thought of reincarnation. I ask them just to first consider the possibility. For in time, that beloved furry baby, may come back to you, if it’s what they have contracted to do.

Animal Communication Workshop

Hello Beautiful Soul! I was so honored the weekend of August 1st and 2nd to teach an Introduction to Animal Communication Workshop at the beautiful and spiritually energetic venue of Stone and Feather in Tulsa, OK! Eager and gifted students were ready and willing to learn the basics of telepathic communication and I was ready to teach! Telepathic communication, as I believe it to be, is a natural way of communicating and an ability that all souls incarnate with. It is in humans, that verbal communication is more encouraged in babies to communicate, and we disconnect from our natural telepathic abilities. However, with the proper mindset and instruction, we have the ability to communicate telepathically with all species.

Other aspects of my workshop included the importance of meditation and the breath.  Giving yourself time everyday to go within and listen to silence will help you in your telepathic communication. It is difficult to hear what Spirit or your animal friends are communicating when you have a rodeo going on in your head. You can start with a simple breathing meditation to become aware of your breath. As you become more mindful of the present your thoughts will slow down. This will help you in telepathic communication with your animal companions.

We also talked about Chords, and their purpose; as how it relates to Animal Communication. One example is the Blue Ribbon. This can be used to let the emotion of another flow through your physical and emotional body. You envision a blue chord or ribbon coming down through your crown chakra and out your heart center. This will allow you to not hold onto any emotion that is not yours. This allows the emotion that is the persons or animals to flow through.

I was truly amazed as my students exchanged pictures of their animals and began to link in telepathically. It was effortless and came very natural to each one. I was so impressed with their lack of fear regarding telepathy and their willingness to believe beyond the physical aspect of animals. Great job students! You each impressed me with your enthusiasm and natural telepathic abilities! One of my students, is a gifted intuitive artist, Melinda Pankey;  her Facebook page is Intuitive Ink.

Other topics included Animal Chakra’s, Soul Contracts, and the Use of the Pendulum in Animal Communication. It was fascinating to see growth in my students in just a 2 day workshop! I hope to teach this workshop again soon, with even more depth, in this most exciting passion of mine!

Animal Communication Event in Eureka Springs, AR

Hello Beautiful Soul! I was so honored to speak recently in Eureka Springs, AR at the Heart of Many Ways Christian Science Center about Animal Communication. I shared information on how to telepathically connect to animals, the 7 main chakras and how to balance them in animals, locating lost animals and using pendulums, as well as providing demonstrations of animal communication to those in attendance.

At the commencement of the evening, outside the window of our room, a lovely doe and her fawn, graced us with their presence. The metaphysical qualities of deer are love, compassion, and gentleness. Deer Totem teaches us to use the power of gentleness to touch the minds of wounded souls who are trying to keep us from our sacred source. This reminds us to love both the light and the dark in order to create gentleness and safety for those seeking peace. I was captivated watching the deer as they acknowledged our presence without fear and hesitation. It brought my consciousness to a place of awareness that Spirit is always there to help guide us ever so gently.

I loved the synergy of the group that I was so humbled to speak to. The entire night was enchanting and the discussion was intelligent and lively! There is something so magical when like-minded individuals gather together to learn from one another.

Thank you to this beautiful group for a wonderful evening!

Love and Light,
