Happy Father’s Day…for all those who are missing their father’s on this day.

Today I reflect on Father’s Day.  As I type this my husband, father of three, is off to the zoo with our two oldest daughters to watch the zoo keepers feed the animals and then have brunch themselves.  I await their return!  My own father passed away a few years ago, I don’t remember the exact year as I chose to try not to…although I remember the exact day and time of the phone call from my mother.  My father has a massive stroke on his way to work December 11th.  He then remained in a coma for 10 days until we made the decision to turn the machines keeping his physical body alive.  I remember all the details as if they happened yesterday, his body fighting to stay alive and breathing…watching as his soul lifted away while I could hear my voice pleading for him to stay.  I also remember the Christmas present’s that still awaited him…this event changed my mother’s life, he was her life.  I miss him yet still feel his presence ever once in awhile.

For all of you who have lost a Father….I’m sorry.  I can not say I understand how you feel as each of us have our own story!  But I share in your loss.  Remember to leave nothing unsaid, be sure to tell those around you exactly how you feel.

Don’t think of him as gone away,
his journey has just begun.
Life holds so many facets,
This Earth is only one.
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears,
in a place of warmth and comfort,
where there are no days and years.
Think of how he must be wishing
that we could know, today,
How nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so much.

I’LL BE MISSING YOU….I know you’re still living your Life after Death!

I am back from Regina.  Was a long couple of days but I’m glad and feel very accomplished that I have reached as many people as I did.  There are not too many consultations that I have with people that greatly affect me.  Not to be mean, but there is part of me that I have to disassociate my work from my emotions.  Just as a doctor has to disassociate from their clients.  However, this past weekend I had encountered a couple of ‘tough’ sessions.  It’s very emotionally difficult to bring through certain loved ones who have crossed over that you can just feel the pain in the living.   It hurts physically and emotionally.  Or those sessions with the living who are what I call ‘lost’, because no matter what you actually say…they may not be at a place to ‘get it’.  But I say everything I need to say and spirit needs to say, because some day down the road they may ‘get it’ and the change will begin.  I always tend to worry whether this work is what I’m suppose to do,  just like everyone else I guess who take a good look at their own stories.  The other day I sat down with myself in the dark and asked, “what I can do to help, to change the world, to inspire, to make people happy, to motivate”.  The answer I got was:  “There will be those who will agree and there will be those who disagree.  There will be those who will try to defeat and persecute.  Keep doing what you’re doing, it would be no different if you were to change your life for others.” 

So I am left the in the same place that I began.  The most important thing is that I am happy.  There was a time in my life that I had to my life, yet what I didn’t understand at the time is that life keeps changing.   

The following are some of my personal sayings that I’ve learned over time.  We all know them, but the hardest part is to actually live by them:  

  • Don’t make things harder than they have to be.
  • Who needs enemies when we see them staring back at us in a mirror…be kind to yourself.
  • We are all individually powerful!  We can change the ending of our own personal story.
  • Stop living in the past!  Don’t take offense but I don’t care what has happened to you yesterday or 10 years ago…what’s important is what happens tomorrow.  What are you going to do…resist or yield?
  • There comes an age with our children that we have to parent differently.  They are adults and must make their own choices and decisions, they mostly want support and encouragement.  They’ll then come to the correct choice without pressure.
  • Stop caring about what society wants or expects…you’re the only one who can take care of you.  Trust yourself!
  • You can work on trust by trusting yourself first through your actions.
  • Listening to your intuition can give you the means to depend on yourself rather than rely completely on others.

My favorite quotes from my personal journal:

“If you are going through hell, keep going”
– Winston Churchill

“You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore”
– Christoper Columbus

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”
– Confucius

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that’s all”
– Oscar Wilde

“You don’t get to choose how you are going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you are going to live. Now.”
– Joan Baez 

“To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle any human being can fight; and never stop fighting”
– E.E. Cummings

American Idol Predictions and Other Stuff

Yea, ok…I hate predictions, but soooo be it.  My prediction is for David Cook to win!  Now is that because I want him to or is it because I see it…who the heck knows..time will tell.  He actually reminds me of Heath Ledger in energy.  David Cook has anxiety and pushes himself to do well, that of course can be a good thing but a bad thing if there is no balance.  There are times as well which seems he falls into a ‘mood’ of dark….but I love his sound and hope he continues to do well, it’s his time right now.

On another issue….my family has been terribly ill.  My daughter has been to the ER once already and it looks like I’m taking her back again this evening.  Hopefully this storm will pass soon, I’m sure it will and all will be back to normal (my normal).  Thanks for everyone for standing by.

Something else to make you go hmmmmmmm…..

I feel that I need to share this bit of information….since it makes me angry.  Yes, I know lots make me angry!  Anyways, I’ve been getting lots of ‘stuff’ in the mail because of my business and the nature of what I do for a living.  This stuff that I’m talking about is ads for advertisement.  First of all, I don’t tend to pay for advertisements.  This adversement “opportunity” as it was pitched to me…promised me that if I pay say $3000 I would have my ad placed on this person’s website as one of the “best psychic mediums” in the world!! 

ARE YOU FLIPPIN KIDDING ME?

Nope, I kidd you not!  That’s what it said, oh it went on to say a bunch of other crap.  So it got me to thinking, can we ever fully trust what we read and see in print?  I guess NOT!  Read the fine print on things folks…lol…you just never know.

…signing out, perhaps one of the best, but depends on who you ask!  hahahahaa

Thought I’d also share one of my daughter’s stories that she made up in her 8 year old mind:

Ellen DeGeneres…enough said, love her
