Weekly Video News and Self-Care While Grieving

Hello, all!

My apologies for not notifying you sooner. I’ve been struggling to write this post for a few weeks now. Rewriting, editing, rewriting it several times.

But, I can’t lie to you. Quite frankly, grief is exhausting; worry and life itself is exhausting for me right now…and has been for more than 2 years and 8 months.

As you know, I have produced four months of weekly videos as an experiment, and to learn about YouTube and to push myself to do something “less-than-perfect” in order to move forward in my life. It was also a promotional tool in the hopes of attracting paying clients for both my mediumship and job/life coaching services. Sadly, it hasn’t attracted one paying client.

Focus on the beauty.

Three+ Sundays ago, I had something urgent I needed to work on for both my son and myself, so I couldn’t do a video, and the next weekend? Well, with all the tragedies which are happening in the U.S., I just couldn’t pretend to be in a positive mood when I’ve been so upset.

I know, maybe now *is* the time to do a positive video when we need it the most but, my heart simply isn’t in it, and I’ve learned during this journey with grief, that I should pay attention to that.

Yes, I’ve pushed myself in doing many other things that needed to be done that I didn’t want to do, but this is different.

To complicate matters, my PTSD was triggered when I recently went to my neighbors to give them some things for their grandkids (I’m decluttering) and found out her husband had just suffered a stroke the day before. Or maybe it was two days?

My anxieties kicked in immediately so I’m not sure what I heard. He was standing at the door talking to me and I noticed a lot of subtle injuries, not just the use of his hand which he seemed to focus on, and I kept looking at his wife.

I recognized that look. That, “I’m so frightened, I don’t know what to do or say.” look. That, “Omg, is this really happening?” look. That, “Omg, I hope he *will* be okay, eventually.”

She knew. I could tell she knew his injuries were more than just the grip of his left hand. I offered them both healing wishes, didn’t ask too many questions, allowed them to tell me what they felt they wanted to tell me, then fled to my house and sobbed.

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

In case you are new here, my beloved husband suffered a series of strokes before the doctors discovered the “untreatable, super aggressive cancer that had a +1 gene mutation” which led to his death in December 2016, (and, yes, his day of fatal diagnosis still haunts me today), but his symptoms/injuries from the strokes were not stereotypical as was the case in my neighbor’s experience.

Plus, my neighbors have insurance, he can still drive, and there’s no threat of him ever having a stroke again. Totally different scenario from my husband’s, but when I heard “stroke”, I freaked inside just as I do when I hear about someone’s cancer…which I did the week before from another neighbor!

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

And then, the last few days, I realized what might be draining my motivation in getting these videos done: it’s August! With the 14th of every month marking my beloved’s passing, it’s rough but August is even rougher for me and my son.

You see, it’s not only my son’s birthday month but also my birthday month. We now only have each other to acknowledge and express our gratitude that we were born. The one person who loved/loves both of us unconditionally and passionately, is no longer physically present to wish us a “Happy Birthday!”, give us a hug and a kiss, and tell us how much he loves us. Hank’s physical absence, especially during special events, is palpable.

That’s why I think this month has been completely unproductive for me as far as the videos are concerned. And, probably why I’ve been struggling to write this post! I’ve been trying to figure out my total lack of motivation to do them.

Why am I struggling so?

So, I’m going to take the rest of August off from producing these videos. I had hoped to go back to my BlogTalkRadio radio show for the month of August but I can’t even bring myself to do that.

Healing is needed…and planning, while I continue searching for and applying for traditional jobs, locally and remotely.

If you get nothing else from this post, please realize that grieving is something no one “gets over”. It’s something you carry with you for the rest of your life; it simply evolves and you learn how to carry it (some days better than others).

So, be kind to those you know who are grieving even if it’s been years since their loss. And, if that person is you, be sure to practice self-care when things like this happen. Be kind to yourself, let go of some things you feel you *should* do but really don’t have to, and let yourself cry remembering that your tears are an expression of love.

I’ll let you know in September what my next step will be, and if I’m able to serve you as I had hoped to…connecting you to your loved ones on the Other Side and teaching you to recognize the signs they’re sending you, yourself.

Thank you for understanding. I’m sending you lots of love and light,

~Lisa

Messages From The Other Side #17 – July 21, 2019

Hello, everyone!

For this week, I’m pulling again from Louise Hay’s Power Thought Card deck. I love the artwork so much!

The chosen card, “My life works beautifully.” reminds us that when things don’t seem to be working out, they actually are but, I admit, it can be difficult to believe.

Once again, remember to use that “what if” if you’re having trouble with your affirmations. Or, “why is…” preface to the statement can be helpful too. Both shift the energy from a doubtful frequency to a more positive frequency. Thanks for watching!

Love and light,

~Lisa

Hello, everyone!

My apologies for how dark the video is for this week, today got away from me, and I have lots of lightbulbs out in the house. πŸ˜€

For this week, I’m pulling again from Louise Hay’s Power Thought Card deck. The chosen card builds on last week’s message about releasing fears and doubts and encourages us to now take the next step of affirming abundance!

Remember to use that “what if” if you’re having trouble with your affirmations. It shifts the energy from a doubtful frequency to a more positive frequency. It also helps your mind imagine the ‘what if’ scenario for you. Thanks for watching!

Love and light,

~Lisa

Hello, Everyone!

I’m so sorry. I forgot to notify you of a special Summer Solstice Event!

Over the last couple of years, quite a few people have told me they have family and/or friends who want to schedule a mediumship reading with me, but they don’t have the funds, or the time, for a full 60-minute session.

So, I’m happy to announce I will be offering 30-minute mediumship sessions for the next two months!

The regular price for a 30-minute session is $67.00 but for the next two months, (through August 31, 2019), I’m giving you a special coupon code to receive $10 off! Use the coupon code:Β SUMMER2019Β and $10 will be automatically deducted from your session fee. πŸ’žπŸ•―οΈπŸ™

I’ve added all this information to my Schedule a Reading page. Again, my apologies for not notifying you of this sooner via post.

I hope this special event makes it more affordable and easier to fit into you & your family’s and/or friends’ schedules.

Love and light,

~Lisa

Hello, everyone!

Spirit called for me to do something different today, on the 10-year mark of my mother’s passing.

I’m talking about grief: how to honor your own journey with grief and how to honor your loved one who has passed away…which, in turn, honors your grief.

This is also for those who may not have suffered a loss but may want to help a friend, family member, or colleague/co-worker with their grieving.

Grab a glass of water or a cup of tea, and sit back as I help you acknowledge all the ways you already are honoring your loved one(s) who have passed away, and also acknowledge and honor your own journey with grief.

I hope you find this video helpful, and healing.

Love and light,

~Lisa

The Differences (and Similarities) Between Psychics and Mediums

Hello, everyone!

I’d like to start blogging again on a regular basis so, to get myself into the swing of things, I’ll be posting either episodes of my radio show, Messages From The Other Side, or previous blog posts/newsletters for a few weeks while working on finding my new voice. Life is a process, isn’t it?

In this episode of Messages From The Other Side, I discuss the differences & similarities between Psychics & Mediums. PLUS, listen in as Abraham Lincoln & hot-buttered popcorn are referenced in the mini-reading. I may not know the significance of these two things, but the caller does! Great validations from Spirit. πŸ’ž

Also, this episode is unusual for a couple of reasons!

1) The caller is a man. Interestingly enough, it’s very rare for a man to call into my show (in three+ years, I believe I’ve had maybe 3 or 4 male callers). I love it when they do call, though, because it helps spread the word that it’s okay for men to be interested in this topic! (My husband was fascinated by my abilities, and also felt his own connection to the Divine over the years.) It’s okay for men to be spiritual. It’s okay for men to want to connect with their loved ones on the Other Side!

And, 2) I reference Abraham Lincoln and hot-buttered popcorn in this mini-reading. What? πŸ˜€ These two things may not mean anything to me but they carry significance to my caller, and that’s what counts! It’s not for me to interpret what I’m being shown or told by Spirit. It’s the caller’s/client’s interpretation that matters. Spirit is referring to themselves and their lives together, not mine.

Although, sometimes Spirit does have me tell a personal story which then usually relates directly or indirectly to my client. I love it when that happens so specifically!

Frankly, this is the most fun aspect of doing readings. All sorts of intriguing images, phrases, idiosyncrasies are given to me by Spirit and I love listening to how they validate Spirit’s interactions with my clients while they were here physically, as well as how they validate Spirit’s observations and interactions with them in the present from the Other Side!

Please relax and enjoy this October 2018 episode ofΒ  Messages From The Other Side episode.

Love and light,

~Lisa

Friendly reminder: If you like this video, please don’t forget to give me a thumbs-up on the YouTube page. Thank you! (I forgot to ask in the video – I’m still learning!) πŸ™‚

Today, I pulled a card from Louise Hay’s Power Thought Cards deck again for this week. They’re too beautiful to ignore!

If you’re trying to shift from a mindset of lack to one of plenty, this video is for you. The supporting message is about learning to receive. Enjoy!

Bonus: I also have a message from Spirit (a couple, actually) who might belong to one of my viewers. Is it your relative who is coming through?

Love and light,

~Lisa
