New Sign Up Link!

Hello all!

I’ve been busy working on a few things to make your life (and mine) easier. It’s taken me forever but I’ve persevered. Here we go:

If you remember from my post in December 2017 (has it really been three months already?), I now have my payment and scheduling system set up for mediumship readings. It’s not exactly how I’d like it but it works! Oh, and yes, you should be able to schedule a reading through May 2018 now.

WordPress only allows me to do so much here and, even though I do pay an annual fee, there are limitations, and I have to do a lot of work-arounds. In the next year, I plan on moving/shifting over to a new site where it should look a little better and more professional but for now, it’s good. Thank you for bearing with me. ūüôā

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’m happy to report I’ve set up a new link for you to subscribe to my newsletter where you’ll receive the latest news, blog posts and special offers I’m working on. If you follow me on Twitter, you may have heard me tweet about some things I’m working on a few months ago. Hang in there with me! I’m doing a lot of developer work and it’s been a challenge.

IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ!

If you’ve subscribed to be notified of new blog posts prior to today’s date, could you please re-subscribe through the new link right below the Search window where it says “SUBSCRIBE!” Simply click on the “Sign up for my newsletter!” and follow the instructions.

I’m using a new tool to help me communicate with you wonderful people and I think this newsletter will work much better than a quick notification that a new blog post has been published. If it all works properly, the new blog posts will be delivered right to your inbox and you can read them at your leisure.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As my mind slowly clears, I’ve been able to move forward with my business: baby step by baby step. Far too slowly for me, to be honest, but these last few months, I’m finally feeling capable again.

My thanks to all of my followers, new and established, for your patience and understanding as I slowly emerge from my chrysalis of grief and venture into a new reality where Hank’s physicalness is so greatly absent yet I know he is still loving and supporting me and our son each and every day.

A year and three months later, I’m just beginning to open myself up to sensing him on the Other Side. I keep telling him to bear with me as my heart wrestles with my mind in acknowledging his passing.

For those of you who are at this stage in your grief, I’m right there with you. Be patient and kind to yourself. Give yourself time and lots of love. Your loved ones on the Other Side are with you every step of the way.

Love and light, ~Lisa

News: Online Payment and Scheduling System is Up and Running!

Last year, right before my husband’s health crisis, I had just begun to put together tools for you to pay for mediumship readings and schedule appointments online. It’s taken me a long time to figure out (as you may know, grief muddles your mind) but I, hopefully, have everything properly linked.

Please go to my Contact Me page to start the process. You simply need to click on the link, pay, then schedule your session. You will be asked for two choices of days/times. Also, please know, only your first name is required along with your phone number and email.

I will confirm one of your two choices and we’re all set. It’s quick and easy. I am now taking appointments through March 2018. There are still a few openings for this week still available.

Thank you for your patience while I worked on this process for you. If you know of anyone who has wanted a mediumship reading with me but may have been shy about emailing me to schedule a session, please direct them to my Contact Me page.

Thank you!

Where Have I Been?

My dear followers and subscribers,

It’s been two years since I’ve posted. What have I been up to? Well, from October 2015-August 2016, I took a year off. I decided to let go of all my efforts to either find a job or earn a steady income since nothing has panned out for many years. I left it up to the Universe to guide me in the direction I was supposed to go. I guess I was lucky I didn’t find work because my time and attention would be consumed by my husband’s journey ahead.

It is with great sorrow that I must tell you that late last Autumn (2016), my beloved husband of 29 years, Hank, suffered several series of small strokes which led to the discovery, in November 2016, of an “untreatable, very aggressive, stage 4 cancer with a +1 gene mutation”. He was gone three and a half weeks later, on December 14, 2016. He was only 56 years old. Hank was, and still is, the love of my life.

One year later, I am still in the depths of sorrow, grieving and struggling to survive emotionally, physically and financially (unfortunately, Hank didn’t have life insurance).

Our son has been phenomenal throughout this tragedy and has helped me so much financially as well as emotionally this past year. Unfortunately, his life and job search was put on hold during the ordeal and, this last year, he’s been working hard to find a permanent full-time job, even if it’s not in his area of interest/degree. He’s still looking.

We talk about his father all the time: remembering Hank’s kindness, his wonderful laugh, his strong, deep voice, things he loved to do, or loved to see.

To be honest, I’m still reeling, and the last few months I’ve been reliving all the trauma of the entire experience.¬†There hasn’t been a day that’s gone by for more than a year when I haven’t cried, and that’s okay. The tears help me grieve. I tell people: The depth of my grief is the depth of my love.

I miss Hank so very much and can now fully comprehend the depth of sorrow some of my clients have experienced. Yes, I now know this incomprehensible loss all too well.

I also find myself asking the same questions my clients ask me, “Why him? He was such a good man.” “Why now?” “Why isn’t he here?” My pain blocks me from knowing the answers, at least for now.

But, there is one thing I know for certain. I am truly blessed to have been loved so deeply by this wonderful, incredibly kind and loving man. A man whom I loved, and will always love, with all my heart and soul.

With love and light, ~Lisa

BlogTalkRadio Announcement

Hello all! This is an important announcement regarding my weekly call-in radio show on BlogTalkRadio Announcement.

I wanted to let you know that I will no longer be doing my weekly radio show.

I’ve been getting a LOT of signs over the past couple of weeks that it’s time to end this chapter in my life, to let go, so something even better can come into my reality.

Now, since I love radio, I don’t want to say I’ll never use this platform again but in the past month or two, I haven’t had any callers for one too many airings (and no callers even today), and I don’t want this show to turn into a ramble or monologue. That’s not what this is about.

This show is about you. I do this show to be of service to you. I connect you to your loved ones who have passed away in the hopes of helping you realize they are, indeed, only a thought away.

Your loved ones are still here and they still love you and want the best for you. They are here to support and encourage you.

I hope that I’ve helped you learn that you can directly connect with them too. Over the past two and a half years, I’ve given you guidance on how to do so and I thank you with all my heart for this wonderful journey.

When I first went public with my abilities and then my service to you on such a public platform as a weekly call-in radio show, I was absolutely terrified…but I felt it was the next step for me and followed my intuition. You, my listeners and callers, have treated me with great kindness and openness, and that dispelled all of my fears, and I thank you for that.

I don’t think words can express how grateful I am that you allowed me…to be me!

I am touched that you would entrust me with your Self, your life, and your love for your family and friends. I am very grateful to be a part of that connection, and to be of service to you in that way.

So, thank you for joining me, Lisa on Messages From The Other Side on BlogTalkRadio for these past two and a half years. I wish you the best in life, and I send out lots of love and light to you all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please remember, you can always reach me through this site, and through Twitter. My Twitter username is lablady. Should you be interested in scheduling a full 60-minute mediumship reading with me, feel free to contact me via the link on my Contact Me page. And, don’t forget, you can still listen to my shows as they are all archived. Listen to whichever one pulls at you from the list. Spirit has given us all some great messages over the years.

Have You Been Resisting Your Intuitive Guidance? I Have! That Changes Today.

Coral azaleas in bloom in November!

Coral azaleas in bloom in November!

Hello? Have I grabbed your attention?

You know that intuitive gut feeling that it’s time to do something but, for whatever reason, you don’t? Yup, we’re talking about that. For me, though, I feel it more in my heart than my gut and this time, it took me a couple of years to get to this point! Change can be difficult, can’t it?

I’ve been¬†resisting what my intuition has been telling me for a couple of years now and I give up. Today is the day. I’m surrendering to its guidance and no longer resisting.

You see, for the past 8-10 years (I honestly can’t remember how long it’s been!), I’ve belonged to a writers weekly chat room. I learned an awful lot from the moderator and a few of the people in the chat room early on but have stayed for the social aspect of the group as well as to help others with their journeys, both professionally and personally. It’s the coach in me. ūüôā

What’s changed? I have! I feel like I’ve learned as much as I can (a sure sign for me to move on) from the regular members, have encouraged and coached as much as I can and, most importantly, I no longer like who I become when I’m there.

Publicly, I encourage, offer guidance and coaching (even after hours) but there are times when my petty and intolerant side comes out privately. I don’t like myself then. I’m a very tolerant person. I accept people’s belief systems if they differ from mine (it’s what makes life interesting!), I don’t expect people to know everything (I certainly don’t and will continue to learn throughout my lifetime), and I realize that everyone is on their own life journey, going through their own versions of Hell and growth (or stagnancy).

But recently, I find that¬†I’m growing more and more impatient with a few of the members, intolerant of someone’s lack of attention and common courtesy, and I’ve become snarky publicly. Not a good sign.¬†Yes, it’s a part of me, I admit it, like it’s a part of everyone but I don’t like feeling or *being* that way towards people in this chat room. It lowers my vibration and gets me nowhere¬†but frustrated, with myself and the people involved.

Fear and Isolation

As a person who works from home, my social life is non-existent. Our son is in college and my husband’s work doesn’t give itself to socializing after work. This chat room has offered me a connection with, at the time, like-minded people and the thought of letting go of that connection has been fearful. However, this chat room is no longer bringing out the best in me and it’s starting to show publicly. And, that’s not good. Funny thing is, this pettiness and intolerance doesn’t come out any other time in my life!! So, if that’s not a sure sign it’s time to move on, I don’t know what is!

Why has it taken so long?

Interestingly enough, I have been following my intuition about this situation for a while now but not following it to its fullest direction. My intuition has been telling me it’s time to leave but I haven’t¬†because I fear I won’t have another place to go to connect with people.

I have been looking for another group for more than two years now, to no avail. So, I’ve acknowledged and known it’s time to move on but I haven’t let go!¬†The fear of isolating myself further has prevented me from doing so. I wanted to have a new place to go to before letting go of this chat room.

Today, I’m finally embracing my intuition’s entire¬†message: that of letting go in order to move on¬†without having a place to move on toward.

I admit, when the days come every week for me to sign in and participate, it will be difficult for me not to do so but I am putting my trust in the Universe that something new and better for me will become available.

By following my intuition’s push to let go of this chat room, this social connection, I am clearing the space for¬†another connection, an even better one¬†to present itself to me over the next few days, weeks or months. (I really hope it doesn’t take months, though!)

Sometimes you just have to take the risk, let go of the rope, and fall into the unknown. For me, today is the day to do so.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How about you?¬†Have you ever resisted intuitive guidance only to follow it later,¬†¬†and what helped you make the decision to do so?¬†I’d love to hear about it!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Special note: To those from the chat room that may read this, I thank you for so many years of questioning, wisdom, experience, fun and adventurous chats and I wish you all the best in your endeavors. I hope I helped you on your journeys in some small way.

What Do I Get Out Of Doing Mediumship Readings For People? Joyful Connections!

I have been asked this question, or a variation thereof, quite a few times:

Why do this type¬†of work¬†and what’s in it for me? Like everything I’ve ever done in my life, it is to serve, to help others with my experience and knowledge. And…yes, there¬†is¬†more to it.

Aside from knowing I’ve successfully delivered a much-needed message, it’s the beautiful connections I make between loved ones¬†that brings me such joy, especially when I’ve had a week fraught with problems. This June 21, 2014 episode of¬†Messages From The Other Side,¬†is a great example of those beautiful connections.

I get to tap into the love and support your loved ones on the Other Side have for you, and it makes my heart sing.

I love sensing and feeling the love, concern and support from those on the Other Side. I also love hearing and sensing the love and gratitude¬†in my clients’ voices too. When there’s that “Oh! I know who that is!” or “I know what that’s about!” That’s precious to me and I give thanks to Spirit for being clear. I am thankful that I’m hearing or seeing or sensing what is needed for that person at that moment so they can be sure they are not alone, that their loved ones’ spirit lives on.

I also love hearing the relief and yes, sometimes the much-needed release of emotions. To me, that means healing is taking place, and that’s what making these connections is all about: healing.

Recently, I’m noticing more and more that Spirit wants to get right to the messages of support and guidance to my clients. They are anxious for their guidance to be heard but I like¬†to make sure (and I ask¬†Spirit to do so), that I receive and pass on evidential validations first. This way,¬†my client is certain that I’m connecting with their loved one(s) on the Other Side and are more open to receiving the guidance¬†their loved ones are giving.

This interesting transition tells me that our loved ones are rooting for our health and well-being far more than we realize.

For me, it confirms they are watching over us and want us to succeed, and they want to be heard. Our loved ones on the Other Side want to share their wisdom, their love, their support. By connecting¬†with me to pass on messages of love, guidance,¬†and support and feeling that loving connection knowing it will help you¬†(my clients) move forward in positive¬†way…well, it¬†makes my heart sing.¬†I am so happy to¬†be¬†able to share these communications.

I thank you and your loved ones for allowing me to share that connection, and encourage you to realize¬†you can (and most likely already are!) connecting with your loved one(s) directly. Relax into the moments, and be open and aware of life’s synchronicities when you are thinking about them.

As with all moments, sometimes they are light and fleeting (a quick “Hello, I’m here!”) while¬†other times,¬†you may have a deeper knowing/sensing/feeling of their presence (an overwhelming sense of love w/an inner hearing of their voice, perhaps). All of these moments are direct communications from your loved ones. Simply¬†acknowledge¬†them and be joyful.

Love and light, Lisa ūüôā

Do They Miss Us? Do They See Our Pain? Do They See Us Struggle?

My¬†caller today brought up several great questions when my time was already up for my BlogTalkRadio episode. My show is only 30 minutes long, (at this point in time I can’t afford to buy more air-time), and the platform shuts me down after 10 minutes¬†past my allotted time. As a result,¬†I can’t cover everything I’d like to as I do during a private 60-minute mediumship reading.

I would have loved to further clarify and discuss Joy’s questions about life on the Other Side. So, I’ll attempt to do so here keeping in mind I’m going by what she asked. I hope I didn’t misunderstand her questions and that these answers prove helpful.

Love never dies.

Joy asked if her loved one was aware of how much she missed him, of how much she hurts, and “does he miss me?” “Does he care that I’m in so much pain?”

These are all wonderful questions and I attempted to explain as best as I could within a couple of minutes and being fully aware that the caller was about to be disconnected.¬†I feel I¬†couldn’t address them as well as I’d like to and like I usually do during a scheduled mediumship reading.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First and foremost, my experience and studies have taught me that when our loved ones cross over, they go through an orientation process themselves, getting used to the form of energy they now are compared to the human form they were while they were in our lives. Some take longer than others to adjust, especially if it was a tragic or confusing ending on this side.

I also believe that we really are Spirit having a human experience rather than humans having occasional spiritual experiences. I don’t think we can truly comprehend this, however, unless we’ve either had a huge spiritual experience like an NDE (Near-Death Experience) or another out-of-body experience where we are given a glimpse of who we truly are.

I, myself, have never experienced such so I can only imagine that level of awareness. By all accounts from people I trust and respect, it is truly an incredible and enlightening experience and it is sometimes difficult to come back to our human-ness afterwards. But the message (one of them) is crystal clear: We are love and we are loved. Every single one of us. ūüôā

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, Joy, to answer your question: Does he miss me?

No, because he’s not gone, he’s with you right now, by your side.¬†He sees everything that is happening – that’s why he mentioned the red shirt & necklace you were wearing when we spoke & that you were sitting on the bed. That’s why he had me say, “He sees you.” There was meaning in that phrase because he knew you had a question about that, even though I didn’t know this until the end of our conversation. He realized the importance of it.

Missing someone, to us, means we are separated from them. As humans, when our loved ones pass away, there is a separation and it’s very painful. Our loved ones on the Other Side, however, realize there is no separation.

They are still present in our lives but we can’t see them with our eyes or touch them with our hands anymore. That’s why it’s so difficult for us. We grieve the physical presence of our loved ones because we’re human! We live our lives in a very tactile manner and when someone is absent from our world, it’s very noticeable and it hurts. We miss them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Does he see what I’m doing, how much I’m suffering?

Yes, Joy, he sees what you are doing, who you are visiting, how you miss him and can feel your heartache.¬†That is why he sends you signs. It’s his way of saying, “I’m here. I love you. I know what you’re going through.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Does he care?

Yes! I can state that with certainty. When we switch forms, we don’t forget our love for each other. Our view expands with the realization that there is life after human death, with the realization that Spirit lives on. And we carry the love we have for each other’s souls with us!

From my experience, it seems once we are on the Other Side, we are able to recognize and truly feel the depth of our love, especially if we had a difficult time admitting or expressing it in this lifetime. If we were lucky enough to fully embrace it and experience it here on Earth, it is still with us on the Other Side.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

How do you know he cares?

Because you sense him, feel him when you honor his physical presence in your life by still doing the things you loved doing with him, seeing the people you two would see if he was there. Because every time you think of him, that’s you sensing his presence and his love for you. It will become clearer and stronger as you heal.

You also know he cares because he came through in a mediumship reading with a lot of unique validations for you! The line of trees, the outdoors (the nature preserve you spoke about), the pond, among other things.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, the reason I mentioned to Joy there was a possibility of still holding onto some anger from a loved one passing – it’s not so much a hateful anger, that’s not what I meant. It’s a subtle anger which the question: Does he even care if I’m in pain? holds within it which is perfectly normal to experience.

It goes along with the hurt and the pain of losing a loved one too soon, and is usually followed by the question: How could he leave me? It’s more of a hurt, so maybe anger wasn’t the best word I could’ve used. Forgive me. And also remember that behind anger, even a hint of anger, is hurt.

I still say writing a letter to your loved one who has crossed over is very therapeutic. Write out your pain, your hurt, your grief, your love, and ask all the questions you want to ask him. If you’d like to take it a step further, James Van Praagh suggests after writing this letter, to put it away for two weeks.

After two weeks, sit down and write a letter from your loved one to you and you’ll be surprised with the information and messages that come through!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I always wish I had more time for the mini-mediumship readings¬†which I offer¬†on my radio show because of beautiful questions like these. And, if I’ve paraphrased incorrectly or misinterpreted the questions (due to lack of time), my apologies to Joy. However, these particular questions still matter!

Most of the time, during a private reading, all of these questions are answered by the end of the hour without the client even asking them. It’s just impossible for me to do this during a 15 or even 20-minute mini-reading. I can only give you a snippet of what a mediumship reading is like with as many validations and/or messages that your loved ones want to impart to me.

I thank Joy for the questions and hope this post clarifies or explains things a little further for her and to all who read it. There’s so much to learn and know about the Other Side and Spirit, and my beliefs have evolved over the years because of my curiosity, my questions, my studies, and my experiences. Never be afraid to ask questions and find the right answers for you!

One¬†message or belief¬†that has always been a truth for me has never changed, and it’s this: love and Spirit never die.¬†‚ô•
