Messages From The Other Side #10 – May 19, 2019

This is a little longer than usual because I have a story to tell you! It matches up beautifully with the Power Thought Card I picked from Louise Hay’s deck for this week.

I hope this video helps you become aware of the signs the Universe/Divine is sending you, and helps you figure out how those signs encourage you to create the life you want!

You have the power within to create the life you want. I needed to be reminded of that. Did you?

Love and light,

~Lisa

Messages From The Other Side #8 – May 5, 2019

This week, I used Lucy Cavendish’s The Oracle Tarot deck and pulled two cards for us. Of course, the second card supported the first card beautifully!

Ahh, synchronicity…and the wisdom of the Divine. ūüėČ

Love and light,

Messages From The Other Side #7 – April 28, 2019

For this week’s message, I chose to use John Holland’s The Psychic Tarot Oracle Deck. What a wonderful message of Hope!

After finishing this video, I realized I forgot to look at that second card that drew my attention! Remember, I put it aside to look at later? Oops!

Well, the bonus card ties in beautifully with the above message. Read on to find out how. (I’ll paraphrase John Holland’s explanation as best I can.)

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

BONUS CARD: The second card was the Mental Conflict card which talks about the inability to make decisions and move forward in our lives. It reminds us we have the “…strength, the courage, and the power…” to take everything into consideration in order to make the best decision for ourselves…which ties into having faith in ourselves, and our own intuition!

So, if you feel like you have a difficult decision to make, know that you already know what to do. Trust your intuition and have faith in your ability to know what is best for you, what is for your highest good.

Once you make that decision and act upon it, you’ll feel a sense of relief and you can move forward with a positive attitude, thereby resolving that mental conflict.

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

Both cards for this week support each other and encourage you (us) to listen to/trust your intuition, have faith in yourself (and your decision-making abilities), in order to move you forward into a better, more positive life. ūüôā

What a lovely message!

See you next week! I’m sending you lots of love and light,

~Lisa

Big News! I’m on Patreon!

Hello everyone!

BIG NEWS!! I’ve created and launched a Patreon account!

I’ve put in at least 30 hours worth of writing, editing, rewriting, linking, connecting, podcasting, and a couple of hours trying to do my 5-minute introductory video for my new venture!

Honestly, I spent more than an hour outside trying to make a nice-looking video for you only to be constantly interrupted by: a UPS truck driving up to neighbor’s house **BEEP BEEP!**, a loud car driving by, sirens of a fire &/or ambulance, another neighbor chopping wood(?), neighbor’s dog barking, and more. ūüėÄ

I gave up and shot the video on my desktop at night.

But…as I said, I’m a podcaster and a writer/blogger, not a vlogger! (Although, secretly? I’d love to do some more videos for you down the road.)

I’d love for you to visit my Patreon page, listen and/or read my story, and, hopefully, feel called to become a Patron and join the community I want to create there.

For those of you who don’t realize it, if you subscribe here, you’ll receive my weekly newsletter, usually discussing the message(s) from my Sunday radio show, Messages From The Other Side, (every Sunday at 3:30pm EST) You will also receive special news bulletins, and be notified of any discounts I offer.

I rarely do blog posts on here anymore, so I highly recommend you either subscribing to my newsletter or becoming a Patron where I’ll post the newsletter and any special news or offers first for Patrons. You can read more about my offerings there.

I hope you’ll join me on this new venture! Thanks!

Love & light,

~Lisa

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.

Valuable Life Lessons Of Support – Follow-up To Today’s Radio Show

IMG_0583A

Important and Valuable Messages for Lori and All of Us

As I ended today’s episode of¬†Messages From The Other Side, I felt the need to write further about the messages coming through for my caller, Lori, and within minutes, I made a connection with something that was brought up and we were a little confused by during the conversation.

NOTE: Since Lori called in to a public radio show I am extending her permission to this post & I hope¬†she won’t mind me sharing the added insights here as I have no way to get in touch with her. I also feel that by sharing these added insights, messages and guidance, that they will help others.

The Puzzling Validation and Realization

Lori’s¬†mother came through and brought up a puppy and it turns out that she had¬†made Lori abandon a puppy when she was a child. We weren’t sure how to interpret that other than the validation that¬†her mother was¬†acknowledging a¬†childhood event but I felt there was something more significant to it.

It dawned on me after the show, and what was it?

This is what came to me: “Even though we abandoned the puppy, we haven’t abandoned you.” It was impressed upon me by not only her mother but all of Lori’s loved ones on the Other Side: “You’re not like this puppy. You’re not abandoned.”

Wow. Lori, I hope you’re reading this.¬†This message and insight clicked for me. That was the “something more” I felt but wasn’t seeing when I was spoke to you earlier. I hope it resonates with you as well.

Acknowledgement of Accomplishments

I also want Lori and any of you who have taken the courage to start anew someplace different (whether it’s a new town or a new job or a new relationship) to acknowledge the courage that it took to do so!! Even though things didn’t work out,¬†it was valuable life experience!

First, it taught you you were strong enough to take the risk (of the move, the job, the relationship) and second, if it didn’t work out, it taught you what you don’t¬†want in your life thereby teaching you what you DO want in your life/job/relationship. How cool is that?

One of the best ways I know to discover what you want in your life, and who you want in your life (personally and professionally), is to actually live and acquire life experience! Sometimes the life experience will be good, sometimes it’ll be bad but you always learn valuable lessons from both experiences!

A hawk flew into my yard during today’s conversation.

Valuable Life Lessons of Self-Support

Thought you’d like to live in a small town or work from home but you discovered it’s far too isolating for you and is even a bit unhealthy for you? That’s great! You NOW know you need to find work outside the home or make the effort to balance working from home with taking the time to network with other like-minded individuals and spend time with friends. You can create a balance.

If you can’t do so in that small town, then it’s okay to move to a larger town where there is probably a more diverse demographic, museums, theatres, festivals, activities, hiking or biking trails – where the town encourages you to be more active and more social. And you might find that works better for you so honor the lessons and the choice to move as a sign of self-support.

Remember, if you hadn’t taken the chance to experience the move or the change in job, you would never have learned what you really need and want in your life, what is acceptable and unacceptable to you, and how you can be healthier and happier.

Acknowledge your courage to take that risk and acknowledge the lessons learned from that experience. Those lessons are invaluable to creating the life you want.

How? You’ve found what doesn’t work for you and that leads you to making educated, and more supportive decisions, so you can¬†live¬†a life that you love with whom you love, so that’s a good thing! ¬†ūüėÄ

Additional Support Which You Might Not Recognize

For Lori:¬†I don’t know if you rescued those two cats in the town where you now live, but if you did, can you see that, perhaps, one of the reasons you moved there was to do just that? To help these cats? Adopt them and add joy and compassion to your life and theirs? You are there to support each other. How beautiful is that?

And, if you rescued them before you made the move, could the reason you felt compelled to do so was because they knew (and you did too) that they could give you support realizing there was a possibility that the small town was going to be too isolating for you? That your intuition knew the cats would help you cope?

As I mentioned on today’s show, we get to¬†choose what holds significance in our lives. No one else has to agree with that significance, it is our own to embrace.

It is a way for us to offer ourselves support when we don’t feel supported by anyone around us. It is a way for us to cope with life’s challenges, big or small.

Don’t devalue yourself or your efforts or your risk-taking. Within every step you take, every decision you make, there is a valuable lesson of self-support in it (or lack thereof). And you know what? Sometimes you have to make the “wrong” decision or a “bad” decision to know what is the right decision for YOU.

How many of us learn the easy way? Not many, huh? Most times, we have to experience challenging events, relationships, jobs, moves, trials in order for us to learn how to love ourselves, respect ourselves and support ourselves. When we can do that, we can truly change our lives for the better, be healthier, happier, and more loving to ourselves and the world around us.

Please don’t forget to¬†send healing and positive wishes to Lori in Acme, Washington. Let her feel our support and encouragement to honoring her decision to move to a healthier and happier place with her two cats. ¬†ūüôā Thank you!

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

So, tell me, how are you learning to support and respect yourself, your decisions, your health and well-being? What challenges either big or small have taught you valuable life lessons that helped you improve and support your life in the best way possible?

You Teach What You Most Need To Learn

Saturday’s show was great. It was a wonderful reminder of: “You teach what you most need to learn at the moment.”

As you can hear in my conversations, I could relate to both of my callers. The more I connect with people’s loved ones on the Other Side, the more I feel the connection we all have with each other and how helping one of us can truly help us all.

As I tried to explain to my husband who often asks me how I hear, sense, feel, know things, (yes, I’m grilled in my own home about such things!), I am often guided to talk or share about experiences or perceptions in my life and while¬†that may seem to listeners like I’m going off on a tangent, I’m not. Within a minute or so, you hear that it directly pertains to my caller or client and what they’re experiencing in their lives. They just haven’t mentioned it yet! I love it when that happens. ūüôā

You see, the loved one(s) I¬†connect¬†with instantly puts in my mind what I need to share and I go with the flow. I’ve learned to trust the process, the conversation. It seems our loved ones really do know what we are grappling with in our lives and what we may be afraid to ask or admit. There is a great level of compassion for our struggles here in the physical world.

Spirit then offers advice or guidance for my caller’s or client’s highest good because I always set that intention prior to my radio show and prior to any reading. And I’ve come to learn that the advice or guidance which comes¬†through can often be helpful to me. The times when it is so obvious, like during Saturday’s show, I make a mental note of the words of support and encouragement and know they were meant for me too. I thank my guides and the Divine for seeing the connection.

Life works in mysterious and wondrous ways, doesn’t it?

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

Another interesting thing that can happen, on my side of the readings, is that when I make a connection, I can feel the love, the compassion, and yes, the sorrow from both parties. In this case, I obviously picked up on the first caller’s anxieties because after I hung up, that extra anxiety was gone.

I still have my own stuff to deal with but that extra tightness and stress I had felt a couple of hours before the show had dissipated. And the other nice thing? The love and support I sense and feel from my caller’s loved ones lingers, offering me that same sense of love and support that I could use. I thank Spirit for that as well.

And the messages received on Saturday were so beautiful!!! As I look at the roses my husband gave me and which I brought into the office for the support I felt I needed, the caller’s grandmother’s message to her to bring in fresh cut flowers into her¬†home and make sure to keep them fresh:

“As you take care of them, it’ll encourage you to take care of yourself.”

How beautiful is that??

And the second caller’s loved one had another important message as he sought a guarantee of a possible future for him. The message referring to Sonia Choquette’s motto: “Trust Your Vibes.” Spirit knows how important her work is to me and how she helped me get through severe post-partum depression more than 20 years ago. Her writings, her life have inspired me and helped me ever since. So I gladly passed on not only that message and recommendation but this last one from the caller’s grandmother (or great-grandmother?):

“You’re in capable hands…and they’re your own.”

Wow. That was impactful for me as well.

So next time you hear yourself offering some advice or guidance,¬†listen carefully to see if it relates to you as well. Then, follow it. ūüôā
