Special News About My Radio Show!

(To listen to the audio version of this post, PLEASE CLICK HERE.)

Hello everyone!

As you may know, if you follow me on Twitter, I had a bit of a panic this past week and had to take a breather for a couple of days to figure out a new game-plan for creating/publishing podcasts and blog posts.

(Interesting to note that my panic came the night before something HUGE happened in the U.S. & I wonder if I was actually picking up someone else’s panic? That sort of thing has happened to me before – picking up on the energy of world events before finding out about them.)

As you also may know, I am in dire financial straits since my husband passed away in December 2016. Therefore, it is critical I spend my time on projects which have a better chance of bringing in an income.

The brain fog that comes with grieving, especially in the early months/year has lifted, for the most part, but I still can’t multi-task as easily as I, once, could (yet), so I get easily overwhelmed. I know those of you who are grieving understand this challenge.

If all goes well with the basics I’m offering via Patreon, it will free up my worry to be able to do even more to help you (and me!) heal, and improve your intuition in order to create a more positive life moving forward.

Now, when I re-started my BlogTalkRadio show, Messages From The Other Side in October 2018, I mentioned I would produce/write/host the show for a month or two to see how it works out then decide whether or not to continue.

The major change is this:

*I have come to the decision to stop doing my weekly public podcasts, for now.I will, however, create monthly, special-invite, Patron-Only podcasts!

As I mentioned above, I must focus my energy on projects and content which have a better chance to bring in an income, and my public, live radio shows have never brought me paying clients.

Examples: I had my job coaching radio show for three years, helped 1000s of people (callers as well as live & archived listeners), create professional resumes, finetune their job search, network, interview, follow-up, get hired, negotiate their salary, (seriously, I wrote more than 30,000+ words–a book for all my episodes!) and all my time, efforts, research, writing, producing, coaching, didn’t bring me onepaying client.

Same thing happened with my mediumship radio show: I wrote/produced/hosted it for three years, teaching how to best connect with your loved ones on the Other Side, what blocks you may have and how to let go of them, etc, and gave away hundreds of mini-readings, and only got 1 paying client ($50, at the time). She was the host of a “supernatural” radio show where she wanted me to guest, so she felt the need to vet me…which is fine, I don’t mind that. She paid me for my services and I appreciated that.

So, I guested on her show. She thought it would be good exposure for me because she had a larger and longer-established audience, and it would, probably, bring in some much-needed paying clients for me. I agreed because I also had read that this was a good way to promote yourself. Well, I ended up providing TWO HOURS worth of free mini-readings for her callers. Result?  Appreciative callers but not ONE paying client in the days, weeks or months afterwards.

And, please, don’t get me wrong. I am always happy to help those grieving by connecting them to their loved ones but I need to pay my mortgage and eat! So, it seems that, for whatever reason, after a decade’s worth of providing my services for free (both my job coaching as well as my mediumship services), these sorts of promotions simply don’t work for me. They do not result in paying clients.

So, that must go.

*What I will do, though, is have a private, monthly podcast for Patrons only ($5/month Tier) where you will be able to call in (I’ll have a chat room open as well), and I’ll pick 1 or 2 callers to chat with: you can ask questions, share a story, and/or have a free mini-reading!

I need to focus my limited energy (due to grief) on my Patrons.

*I will continue to upload ad-free archived podcasts from my Messages FromThe Other Side radio show from 2013-2016 weekly! In the meantime, I will find a place to store these 100+ episodes for easier reference and access for my Patrons.

*I will also put out a weekly blog post (newsletter) for Patrons-only with helpful insights and guidance for you to connect with your loved ones on the Other Side, improve your own intuition, and help support you in your grieving process.

*Bonus (if I’m not overwhelmed because I really want to do this): I want to pull a motivational, inspirational, insightful card (either tarot or positive affirmations) a few times a week, and if it’s not too overwhelming for me, maybe have it daily. I think we can all use a beautiful piece of artwork + some positive energy these days on a daily basis. 🙂

I haven’t decided whether or not it’ll be a photo or a quick video. I think my batteries are out on my camera, so it may have to be a short video. I use these cards for myself and they are always insightful and bring beauty into my life, so I hope they will do the same for you. I’m being encouraged to do this, so we’ll see what messages come through for all of us!

I believe I’ll be able to do all of the above on a consistent basis. We’ll see how it goes for December (which is a very rough month for me as Hank passed away this month 2 years ago, so I ask for your patience, and thank you in advance. ❤

At the beginning of the year, we’ll see what worked and what didn’t, if I could keep up with everything, and we’ll go from there. I’d love for this to work out for all of us, supporting you through your grief, and supporting you on your own unique spiritual journey in creating a positive, joy-filled life.

I wish you peace, love and light during this holiday season.

~Lisa

IMPORTANT Update on My Twitter Username!

Hello everyone! MY TWITTER USERNAME IS: @IntuitiveLB.

UPDATE: 10/15/2018 – 8:38pm, I believe it is finally fixed. lol If there is a flaw in your system, I will find it, guaranteed. I’ve notified Gravatar of the visual bug which didn’t allow me to see where to change this information. It is hidden behind some text on the page for me. Still is, but I figured out how to deal with it and make the changes. Thank you for your patience! 🙂

I am, however, still awaiting to see if Twitter is supposed to be forwarding my old Username queries to my new Username Twitter page (it’s the same account!) that I’ve had for almost 10 years. lol If they ARE supposed to be doing so, they need to know it’s not working properly. Wish me luck!

UPDATE: 10/15/2018 – Nope, it’s not fixed. For some reason, I can’t get Gravatar’s system to change the link! Have written them for help.

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

I am so sorry. I just now realized that the Twitter link on my Gravatar takes you to a “suspended account” page. I’ve fixed it so it takes you to my Twitter page which has been active for almost 10 years. 🙂

Please know, I have never been suspended on Twitter! I simply changed my Username, but, for some reason, Twitter does not forward those who use my OLD username to my page!

I’ve asked Twitter Support for an explanation since I noticed this occurrence a few months ago (missed the Gravatar link, though), and I’ve received absolutely no help or explanation from them at all.

But, unfortunately, this might explain why some people may have been put off by me if they clicked my Gravatar and got a “suspended account” page on Twitter. 😦

Honestly, Twitter needs to fix this! I wonder how many other people have changed their username but, maybe, forgot to update a link somewhere or someone typed in their old Username and didn’t know it was changed, only to be told the account (which STILL exists) is supposedly suspended. And, it’s not.

My apologies for the mix-up. I hope I now have all my Twitter links corrected since Twitter doesn’t forward people like I thought they would. Makes no sense why they don’t have that programmed into their system.

First Episode of Radio Show Successful (and a beautiful message included)

My first episode of Messages From The Other Side is complete! I was a little rusty in the sense of asking Spirit to come through as strongly and quickly as possible, but it went alright! I just have to get back in the groove for quicker readings.

I was having difficulty hearing my callers, especially the second caller so I’m going to try a more direct connection with BlogTalkRadio next week. (I’ll test it during the week.) Just know, if you’re calling in, try to call from a landline for the best connection, or at least, from a very strong wifi signal with your cell phone.

The better connection I have with you, the better connection I’ll have with your loved ones on the Other Side. Thanks!

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

One thing interesting about today’s episode was my first caller, Donna, asking if she would be with her son (lost due to a miscarriage), when she crossed over.

I was a little puzzled, to be honest, because this woman consistently meditated to connect with her loved ones with great success! And yet, she hadn’t realized she would see and be with her son and other loved ones on the Other Side when she arrived.

A little piece of the puzzle was missing and she seemed happy to know that I believe that she will definitely see her son and others.

And, I thought it was so very sweet that she asked if she could talk to him now. Yes! Absolutely! I hope that brought her comfort and I’m sure she’ll be able to successfully connect with him now that she realizes he’s okay and still exists, in the form of Spirit. Does that make sense?

Now, I also happen to believe if you don’t want to hang out with certain relatives on the Other Side, you don’t have to! But, you certainly have the option of being with any and all family members and friends!

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

The message was clear: we are all connected and Donna knows this, has proven it to herself through meditation and dream visitations (her mom!). We have only to be open to those connections, as she will now be open to connecting with her son.

(I’ll write more about those connections in next week’s newsletter and post.)

For now, take heart in knowing your loved ones on the Other Side, no matter how brief your connection to them in this physical life, are with you and love you, and support you…always.

Sending you love and light,

~Lisa

P.S. I’ve opened up my calendar through November to schedule readings, so if you know anyone who is interested, please let them know I have openings available. Thank you!

A Reminder to Let Go of Our Expectations

Once again, the Universe seems to be sending me messages…or is that Hank? I was immediately drawn to this post from October 2013. It’s about letting go of our expectations of HOW messages or opportunities come to us, and the art of connecting with people (and why it’s so important for people like me…mediums).

Briefly, when we have the how we want to hear from our loved one: a touch on the shoulder, hear his/her voice audibly, have a visit in our dreams, feel their presence, set in our minds, we can miss the ways they ARE communicating with us.

Remember, their strength may be sending you their name all the time but if you have it in your head that you want to actually SEE a vision of them, you’ll ignore the instances of seeing or hearing their name everywhere. You’ll see those as coincidences rather than signs and simply dismiss them.

As you know, I’ve had trouble connecting with my beloved on the Other Side. Then I catch myself thinking, but have I really? I want to sense Hank near me, I want to FEEL his presence. And because of that, have I been dismissing the signs he IS sending me?

Like going for a walk several months ago, crying and talking to him (yeah, my neighbors probably think I’m crazy but I don’t care plus a lot of them know I’m a recent widow anyway), and pleading for him to help us financially, we desperately needed money for food.

As I began my walk, I had to cross over to the other side of the street because there were neighbors with a dog that I really didn’t want to talk to ahead of me. (Note: I never walk on that side of the street going that way.)

As I sobbed and pleaded to Hank, “We need money NOW!” I looked down and there was a $5 bill amongst the leaves next to the curb!

I looked around for another person who may have dropped it but there was no one. I thanked Hank profusely and asked him (along with all his guides and angels) to keep helping us financially.

know he’s been working overtime helping us survive, so why am I not registering these little acts of assistance as him connecting with me? I mean, I am…but I’m not, you know?

One thing Hank was, was a hard worker and a good provider. Somehow, we’d make enough to squeak by every month. Even when a job fell through, he’d have a call within a day for a side job to make up for it. And because I am, by nature, frugal, I made sure we saved everywhere we could to stretch the money he made as far as it could go. We never had “extra” due to my unfortunate unemployment, but we had enough for bills…just.

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

So this week, think back, and pay attention to the little things that worked (and work) out in your life, the happy accidents or the synchronicities. What were your expectations of a call, situation, meeting, event? Did you adapt or hold tight to those expectations and what were the results?

Have you asked your loved one to “show themselves” while ignoring more subtle signs from them? Don’t dismiss the subtle signs! Thank them for the unexpected sign so they know they can use that same sign again and again to let their presence known to you to offer you comfort. Write them down and date them and I bet you’ll see a pattern emerge.

I’m trying to remember to do this myself so I can fully acknowledge Hank’s communications with me, so I’m right there with you!

Love and light,

Lisa

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. 🙂

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

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

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. 🙂

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.
