Mercury Retrograde - Using it To Our Advantage

Okay, so, the past couple of weeks have been, in some aspects, absolute shit!  I'm gonna tell it like I feel it.  Add to this Mercury Retrograde coming into rule for three weeks and BAM!  Miscommunications, machines on the blink, crabby people, injuries above the norm, etc. etc. etc. 

That's what happens when Mercury enters Retrograde.  That said, I firmly believe buying into the negativity of Mercury Retrograde can add to the furor already surrounding it.  I am lucky enough to understand that everything that gets brought up or happens, truly happens for a reason. While we might not know it at the time, all things are eventually revealed.  And, while we cannot control what happens energetically on a Universal level, we are able to manage how we react energetically to this time frame.

Almost three weeks ago, I woke up to a dislocated jaw.  Yep, woke up to it.  As someone who is already far beyond in tune, imagine having every single aspect of  Mercury Retrograde felt to the depths of my being and earlier than it's slated appointed timeframe because it is "moving into it".  Blech! 

I also found myself the recipient of my first "hate mail" which after reading the subject line "You and Your Kind Will Burn in Hell" and first sentence,  "What gives you the right to tell people you communicate with the dead you charlatan".  Needless to say, that was the straw that broke this camel's back.  Kicked when I was already down. (I deleted the email almost immediately and did not want to keep it for posterity's sake, lol.  My first "fan" mail. lol)

With that, here's what frame of mind I found myself in. 

I wanted to give up.  Period.  On one of my biggest dreams.  "The Mountain Medium". 

I had been ordered into a non-talking phase, and I had had no choice but to "dig deep" once again.  Why has all this happened?  Well, as you know me, I have learned to turn my why's into what's and here is what has happened.

I let everything "get me".  Ego ran amuck.  And I needed to move into a state of grace and allow the feelings to wash over and through me.  To not resist the process and feelings so that they didn't persist.  I am blessed to say that I am out of the "giving up" phase and have learned so much in the past two and a half weeks.  Never mind the last few days.
Here's what I have learned:

1)  Mercury in Retrograde isn't an easy time.  For anyone.  I am hearing all sorts of things "coming up" for people.  Machines breaking down, people breaking down, the gamut of "backwards".  It doesn't mean that nothing is going to work out.  It means we have been given a really big learning opportunity.  That everything that comes up is a chance to grow and learn through a "dark time".  Learn to love ourselves more, learn to love others more.  For it is truly what will make this world go around even in the "darkest days".

2)  People "hate".  They hate what they don't understand and are working form THEIR OWN frame of reference.  It doesn't mean that you are hated.  Clearly something has gone on in their world to have them feel the need to react in this way.  It is THEIR reaction and your reaction to it that determines the outcome. 

I lost it.  It just added to what I was feeling about "giving up".  The doubt was already there and it split it wide open.  BEAUTIFUL!  That mail and my reaction to it paved the way for something more amazing.  The ability to reside in Unconditional Love.  Human isn't easy.  Neither is Unconditional Love.  However -

3)  Unconditional Love is something I am committed to.  We all have the ability if we make the choice to do so.  I love myself more than that.  I love my work more than that.  In fact, I said a prayer for that person thanking them for creating the situation because it really made me come out fighting.  For me.  For the work.  For love.  And removing judgment from my life.  For in order to unconditionally love someone, we must look past their actions, words, clothes, hair, etc. and see them for who they really are.  A Spiritual Being (at the core) having a human experience.  I do not have the right to interefere with their Human Experience, regardless of what they are doing.  That is not to mean I will not fight for keeping someone safe.  It means their choices are THEIR choices.  Who am I to judge that?  I have absolutely no right.  None of us do.

4)  In the moment of wanting to "give in" we are on the verge of something amazing.  It is at the time when things appear "the worst", that we must hold hope that things are heading into the moment of being another breakthrough moment of amazingness.  I posted a Facebook Entrepreneurship Scale of how things build.  One of those moments is "the dip", when things appear "the worst".  It is then we must hold on tight because we are about to be gifted something beyond our wildest dreams.  And, while we might not know what it is or how it's going to look, we must hold out our hands, prepared to embrace the gift we are about to receive.

I believe I have received my gift(s).  Two members of my care team Here helped me through these "dark days" and helped me come out the "other side".  Lol.  Other Side. ha ha ha

I want to thank first and foremost the Other Side, pure Heaven.  For giving me the experiences over the past few weeks to learn from.  And my angels Here.

My Carrie for allowing me to have my hissy fit and call myself all sorts of names while I was "in it" and needing to embrace "the dark".  My friend Monique who was there to complete "the cry" necessary to release the fears I was having and the hurt I was still holding onto. 

They both cheered me on as physical hosts of the good grace of God.  Reminding me that I had every right to feel what I was feeling and that something really awesome must be coming if this is what I was going through.

I have learned so much with Mercury moving into Retrograde and it has been DIFFICULT!  I rest knowing that I have taken really good care of myself, allowed others to care for me, and that everything IS okay.  I am exactly where I need to be.  It is the time of amazingness. 

I have learned what is important to me.  And it's me.  Nothing else.  Just me.  Medium or not, wife or not, it is life itself.  And by the grace of God, I am here to have another day, and I will make the best of it.  Even when I am at my worst.  For in that moment.  I am loved.  And there's NOTHING like the love of Self and the love of Others.

Let's face it.  Each and every one of us has a wish.  A hope.  A dream.

Pause for a minute and think about it.

Young or old, we have ALL had one.  A happy home life.  A successful career.  Fame.  Fortune. Love. Kindness. Generosity.  Whatever that dream is, it does not have an expiry date.  I have heard that many times and I really needed to share that again.  When I heard it the first time from LL Cool Jay, I fell in love.  With that quote.  So whoever was at the helm of it, thank you to the "deliverers" of that message.

But let's go back to that.  "Dreams don't have an expiry date".  EVER!

In this world of Soul Charts, I firmly believe we all have one, and that certain things like the job of your life, the love of your life, etc. are all set at certain "times" along the way.  If God has a plan, he knows the appointed time.  We have all heard that saying.

Well, imagine if that time were "now".  Remember earlier blogs and my feelings about time?  Time is a manmade constraint used to "control" something, someone, etc.  Really, think about it.  When we work, when we sleep, when something is going to happen.  It doesn't exist!

All we have is NOW.  We may have memories of yesterday, and thoughts about our future, but the only "time" is the one we exist in.  Right.  This.  Minute.


Here is my biggest dream of all. 

I have always wanted to be "famous".  I had stars in my eyes as a little girl and still have them as a grown woman.  I have always imagined myself on screen. 

Here's what I have come to learn about those words and who I am.  To be "famous" is not what I want.  Famous to me denotes "above the rest", egoic almost.  What seemed as "cool" to me has now become awesome in a completely different way.

What I wish for is to be recognized as someone leading the way with what I have as an ability.  The reason I want to be recognized is for the work itself.  I have a wish to be the representative only.  It is truly the work that is THE MOST important to me.  And it all stems back to the dreams of a young girl.

The very first time I became cognitively aware (as in I truly began to understand who and what I was)was when I read James Van Praagh's, "Talking to Heaven".  I was 26.  I began to realize exactly what my life had been showing me.  I was a Psychic and a Medium.  My life was "turning".  Leading me to here and now.  Someone who's time has come.  It has ALWAYS been my dream.

Along the way, I have skeptics.  And that is okay.  People that don't believe my time has arrived.  People that have never believed in the possibility of being "famous".  People that have doubted me.  This includes me.  Yep.  You heard it.  Me.

But this ends NOW.  Ego will always be there nipping at our heels, wanting us to "fail", asking us, "how badly do you want this", and just waiting to knock us down.  IF we let it.

Today I recognized something going on in my head.  Ego had made it's ugly little rise, just to try and "knock me down". 

As someone who was bullied throughout her entire life, I get where bullies come from, and can say I have "survived".  Ego is a bully.  And through this blog I will put this particular "bully" to bed.

Several opportunities have been "offered up", and have passed me by, and ego has now crept in, in the form of self-doubt.  Is the little girl ever going to be "famous".

Here's what I have to say to her:

"You look so sad because opportunities that you got excited about haven't happened.  I am sorry that it has made you scared. I am glad you had a cry about it today.  When you show the Universe (God, Creator, Cosmic Design Committee) with your tears, you have taken action.You have let the Universe know that you really, REALLY care about something.  And it is so important to you that you it has reduced you to tears. 

We all have that scared, doubtful little being residing in us somewhere.  Let me give you a hug and tell you that everything is going to be okay.  And while it might not be easy to hear this in the moment because you hurt so much right now because the ache for it so bad.....

If you dream it.  You can BE it."

In this lifetime, the possibilities are endless for each and every one of us.  There are poverty stricken, drought infested areas who are raising well adjusted, happy, content little beings.  There are people showing people how to lead the way in the world of possibilities.  There are people creating conscientious businesses because we know what this world needs.

This world needs hope.  And whether or not a potential opportunity I have sitting in my inbox comes to realization or not anymore doesn't Matter.  Why?

Because when a door closes, another one opens.

To something beyond our wildest dreams.

Ego will never "rule" me.  I acknowledge it.  I acknowledge the little girl.  And I say "no more".

So here is what I, as a grown woman who has come to understand so much more about the world thanks to being "that child", would say.

"You ARE an amazing being.  I know these past three years have been hard and you feel like it has taken forever and you can't wait just one more minute.  You are in "the dip" and right there.  Don't you DARE give up now..  Your time has come

Think about it.  You are being recognized for the work you do.  You have people joining you on your journeys whether in your hometown, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Instagram (sheesh technology..........).  You have people that have followed you that you never in your wildest dreams would start following you.  You are now being recognized.  And it is all because of the work."


I am in personal "greatness".

Fear of the Unknown

Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real
Fear = Facing Ego (hate, scared, insecure, too much pride......) and releasing

Over the centuries, Psychics and Mediums have been something feared, hated, and revered, depending on the person.  So I would like to shed some light in hopes of alleviating the "unknown" factor in it all.

I get it, to be skeptical is a very healthy thing.  I embrace skepticism.  Heck, I've been skeptical about myself being able to do what I do.  It is not a common ability, but it is not to denote "specialness" above another.  It is just what I have been given the ability to do.  I firmly believe that anyone that denotes it as a "gift" is wanting to indicate they are "special".  Each and EVERY one of us is special.  We have all been given the gift of life.

There is something else we have all been given.  The gift of Intuition.  Call it Gut Instinct, Hunches, Spidey Senses.  It is our Inner Guidance System.  So here is what I have come to understand.  Take what you will, only that which resonates with you.


Our Inner Guidance System that helps steer us along our path.  Most of us ignore it until we've had a great string of Life Lessons that lead us to the conclusion that if we had "listened" the first or second time, things wouldn't be so rough.  We are not trained in schools to use it, so consider this to be "school".

We are not trained to use our gut and it fires in one of two ways.  It gives us a sinking feeling in the pit of our stomach or we get goosebumps and excitement (without the sinking feeling).  It shows up in the form of "hunches" and "feelings".

"I had a feeling" about this project and boy was I right!  Look at the success it is meeting with!
"I had a hunch about him/her" and look at the mess I avoided!

We as humans love to ignore our gut.  In fact, we are the only species that walks through the bells and whistles.  Animals run at the first instant of that warning system.  Maybe we should too?  But no, we like to be handed life lessons.  Sometimes it is how we are going to learn most of our lives until we are "ready".

I can say I was one that loved to ignore my gut.  The lessons taught me well, but I wish that I would have honored the signal sooner rather than later.

So, here it is in black and white.

If you hesitate to answer, "Would you like to......" that is your "No."  Accept it, say it, and move on.  Your gut is giving you a signal to avoid something.  I even encourage you to stop being nice even after you have said "yes" and you still have that sinking feeling about the situation.  Turn your "yes" into a "no".

If you meet someone for the first time and you get this "yucky feeling" about them.  Run!  It's okay to not "like" someone when you first meet them.  Your gut is sending you a signal.  You can say yes to a new friendship, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc.  But be prepared for the lesson you are about to learn.  They are never easy.

However, trust this when I tell you.  If you learn to say "no" to the "no's" you are getting, you will set firmer and firmer into the path of "yes".  The path of "yes" is a glorious place to be.  Why?

For in honoring our gut, we are guided to our true path, our true passion, days that leave us feeling more and more fulfilled as we journey down this path called life.  I chose to start honoring the "no's" and my path of "yes" has brought me to the most amazing journey ever.

My authentic self.  A Medium, a Psychic, a Motivational Speaker.  I have never been happier.

So now I am going to share with you what I have come to understand about the abilities of being a Psychic and Medium.  Again, I firmly believe we are all Intuitives on this planet.  That is our ability to use our gut as a guidance system.  There are those of us here, and more arriving, that have VERY strong abilities beyond the realm of inner-tuition.


This is the ability to read people's energy.  It does fall under intuition, but again, there are those of us out there that can get right into people's energy and figure out things for them far beyond the physical realm.  As a Psychic, I can foresee things, help find a piece of your soul that might have been "broken away" at a tender age (or even in a past life) and bring it forward to heal, and even go so far as premonitions and predictions.  My wierdest ability in the world of Psychic is predicting earthquakes.  I have turned that one down as it is yet to be melded with the Scientific World in the form of helping others get out before a big one happens.  So I am content to let it rest.

No Psychic should EVER tell you when you are going to die.  EVER!  Yes, I have seen numbers, but it is messing with someone's free will to tell them when that is going to happen.  It is a crime as far as I'm concerned.  It is Psychics like that that give Psychics like me a very bad rap.  For shame!

Psychics can be very helpful in guiding people through life situations with respect to insights and shifts in personal energy.  What a Psychic tells you is NOT written in stone.  It is advice only.  Our Free Will can change ANYTHING seen.


These are the ones that are able to connect with those on the Other Side.  Loved ones, Angels, Care Teams (we all have one assigned to us).  We are exactly that.  The table in the middle between the living and the non.  A visit to a Medium should leave you at peace.  A true Medium will be able to give you that one piece of information that leaves you knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that your loved one is in their presence.  I always advise my clients that while at first, I might be honing in on energy and there might be "blanket statements", I will always be given the one piece of information that I could not possibly know unless I had a loved one present.  It happens every time.  And it should in the presence of any Medium.

Mediums have been viewed as fakes, viewed as evil, and something to be scared of.  Yet, there is a growing trend, a recognition.

We are not to be feared, we are to be questioned.  Questioned for our abilities and honored for them when we have "proven" ourselves.

In the world of Psychics and Mediums there are more and more "waking up".  I have had letters about the "fears" around being called to that mission, and I am here to say this.

We have the right to have it "toned down" if we do not wish it, but it will never go away.  Seeing things can be scary.  I get it.  Imagine seeing your first shadow person at the age of  3.  It was horrific.  It left me with a fear of the dark that I am now quickly moving away from.

However, imagine being able to embrace our own Intuition or our own ability to sense things beyond the physical realm.  We have had it written in our charts.  It's like I've said.  Anyone can be Psychic, but Mediums are born.

So, for those of you out there who have come to realize that ability has been with you all along, I say this.  Embrace it!  It is nothing to fear!  You have a right to not be shown everything if you don't want to, but it will always be there, waiting for you to use it to help others.  We have been given the ability to prove that Heaven exists.  Imagine being behind a movement that brings peace and betterment to the people on this planet.

Our lives are a gift.  Our Intuition is a gift.  Being able to prove that Heaven exists?  Awesome!

We live in a time where we no longer have to be "afraid" of what each and every one of us is able to do.  Be an Intuitive.  Honor your gut the next time it's firing.  You will be amazed to see what happens!

So here I sit.  New Year.  New Start, and it already looks so amazing!

I'll admit it, today's technology is something I am learning to adapt to, and it has been a bit of a challenge. from, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn......holy crap!  The list goes on if we let it.  Heck, I just got my Twitter account after trying it once before and letting it go, stating "what's the point?"

The point is......times change!  And we have to be able to change with them.  Consider it an opportunity to learn that you are capable of doing so many more things than you realize.  For in life, there is a continual ebb and flow of change.  We start out young, acquire our Life Lessons and continue to grow.  Spiritually, Emotionally, Physically.

What each of us needs to remember, is that with change comes amazing opportunity.  What might be deemed as "bad" should be deemed a lesson.  A lesson that will become very valuable in its own right.  And what we deem as "good" should be considered a blessing.  Change is a beautiful thing.

Given what I do for work, I would like to talk about the greatest change we will ever encounter.  Death.

In my line of work I see the faces of those who have been severely impacted by the trauma of someone passing.  Especially if there are things left unsaid or someone is taken tragically whether by accident or by their own hand.

It is coming up on my father's Angelversary, and since his return Home, my life has NEVER been the same.  And, for that, I am actually grateful. 

You see, death is one of the hardest things we ever have to face.  But it is my hopes that while not to ignore the grieving process that takes place, I want to create an understanding.

Death is only of this physical existence, and it is our re-birth into Spirit.

I've talked about this before, but it seems that with Mercury moving into Retrograde, alot of stuff is coming up for alot of people, and it is my hopes to ease some of the "suffering" that death creates for those left behind.

We are meant to grieve, it is part of the process.  We have had someone in our physical presence for whatever the time period may have been, and now they are gone.  The absence felt is very real.  What I want to assure you of, is that your loved ones are now in Spirit, watching over, helping, guiding, letting you know they are there.  If you are prepared to be "still" and "look".

I have always maintained that I will never have all the answers, nor should any of us.  But I am sure of one thing.  Our love, that love, never dies and our loved ones want nothing more than to let us know that they are there watching over us.  Every step of the way.  I have seen it time and time again in the thousands (yes, I am proud to say thousands now - thank you God) of readings.  And I'll say it again, it does not take being with a Medium to have that happen.  I'm just there when those in need are unable to see it for themselves.

I have posted previous blogs about experiencing the signs, but it is clearly time for a refresher course for each and every one of you.

Did you know??

Our loved ones will use animals as messengers - ever sitting somewhere, missing someone, when all of a sudden a bird flies overhead?  Please accept that as a sign from your loved one has acknowledged you thinking of them.

Ever walk into a room only to see a feather on the ground, when there couldn't possibly be because there is no source from where the feather came?  Who is the first person that popped into your head?  THAT is who is sending you a message.

Ever walked along the street to look down and discover a penny?  Consider them pennies from Heaven.

Popped into your car lately and have a song come on that reminds you of someone no longer here?  It is their way of saying hello.  I firmly believe that song is one of the strongest ways our angels in the outfield communicate because in Heaven, that's what angels do.  Sing.  And, while we're at this topic, try setting up a song parameter with a loved one over There.  Request a specific song be played in acknowledgement of the request to know their around.  You may have to be patient, but remember, time doesn't exist over There.

Have you ever turned a corner to see someone that looks EXTREMELY like your lost loved one?  It is another form of "Hello from Heaven".  I cannot tell you how many times I have "seen" my dad.  Right down to his bloody Ford Trucks that he loved so much!

Consider our loved ones an electric current manipulating energy.  A blinking light, your computer shutting down, a phone ringing without a number attached to it. 

All our loved ones have done is what I have called "flip over" to the Other Side.  It is literally like that.  Imagine them, unseen, standing right there beside you, watching over you, guiding you, helping in times of need.

We are not given the tools or understanding of the Other Side unless we are someone called to that Mission.  THIS is my mission.  My hope.  My dream.  To have each and every one of you know that our loved ones are only a wish away.

So I say, be "still", "ask", and "wait".  For they are only a moment away wishing you to know that they truly are Here from over There.

I wish you all the experience of knowing we are truly cared for by something greater than all of us, and our loved ones are now part of that amazing experience.

Many blessings.
