My friend’s channeled drawing of Karma crossing over the rainbow bridge today…

My angelic friend, Diane, is a very gifted trance channel.  She lives in CA so is an hour behind me.  Karma passed away about 2:30 p.m. Mountain Time, which would be 1:30 p.m. Pacific.  While in channeling class, and in trance, Diane asked one of her guides (Maggio) and the spirit of her beloved German Shepherd (Ralphie) to try to reach Karma.  Diane is also a gifted artist and drew the b/w picture below.  She emailed me saying:

A beautiful little girl.

While I was drawing in class I asked Maggio & Ralphie to connect with Karma.  The drawing was done approx. 1:45 LA time.  Attached is what I drew (the black & white image) and then I applied some filters in Photoshop.  My feeling at the time was Karma with wings running into spirit and catching up to her dear friend Bodhi and embraced by Spirit (the cat above).

With care,


(Please note that Diane does these drawings in trance with her EYES CLOSED. Here is her explanation of what she does: I’m blended. My eyes are closed and I mostly don’t look at the paper. Sometimes I can “feel” what is being drawn, like eyes, nose, etc. so I peek to make sure the pencil is in the right place for an eye, then close my eyes again and keep drawing. I can feel thru my ring and last finger where the pencil should go/move.)

When I saw these drawings, I burst into tears AGAIN.  What a gift I will treasure forever!  And, that is definitely Bodhi down below…his famous dark bangs and all!

ImageWhat beautiful imagery and it’s fitting.  As Karma’s spirit passed through me, it zoomed up fast toward the ceiling…like she was running.  I saw 2 rainbows tonight as confirmation from Karma and Bodhi (rainbow bridge) and when I logged into Twitter to change my background to a memorial for Karma, I just “happened” to have my eyes land on someone’s name listed as Bo Dhi.  I am convinced that was Bodhi’s way of letting me know he got my pleas to meet Karma on the Other Side to help her cross over.  I just know they are together.  My heart still aches and I don’t know when I’ll stop crying, but Diane gave me the most special gift ever and I will be eternally grateful.

Here is a picture of Karma with Bleu and Chakra last February 22nd.

In Memoriam: Karma 6/15/1998 to 8/24/2013

ImageI lost my 1st baby…my beloved 15 year old Karma today, and am heartbroken.  She was emaciated (although about 6 lbs. instead of the 5 I thought) and was eating less and less, throwing up, and had a bad seizure this morning.  I think she had cancer somewhere since she didn’t have diabetes, thyroid issues, or kidney failure but something was causing dramatic weight loss.  She cried all the time, although it didn’t seem to be a cry of pain.  She didn’t pass away immediately like Bodhi did, and when she finally took her last breath, I felt her spirit vwoosh through me dramatically.  When I looked in her eyes, she was gone.  I just pray I did the right thing.  It’s so hard.  With her passing, a large chunk of my life’s story is over.  She, Bodhi, and I went through a lot together.  And Karma was especially sensitive to me.  If I was depressed or sick, she sensed it and would cling to me.  She loved to touch me and would often reach over just to touch me with her paw.  Chakra went and immediately started sniffing the empty cat carrier.  I hope she is going to be okay.  She still misses Bodhi and was very close to Karma.  My cats are my children.  My cats are my love.  I can’t stop crying.

This picture of her was taken when she was healthy on 5/14/11.  I took some movies and pictures of her today, but I’d rather remember her looking healthy.

Rest in peace my baby…


If I didn’t believe in spirit attachments before, I think I do now.

ImageI will admit that I’ve never been a huge believer in the whole possession/spirit attachment thing.  Yes, I know about the true story behind “The Entity” and some other cases, but I still had questions in my mind.  That being said, if it walks like a duck and squawks like a duck…it’s probably a duck.  I think the Denver obsession for months truly may have been instigated not by me, but by a spirit I picked up from a now ex-friend.  I never thought about Denver until I met her, and things got more obsessive just days after I’d hung out with her one evening talking for hours.

Now, earlier in July, a gifted medium friend of mine warned me that for a week she’d been picking up I had an unwanted visitor attached to me.  Because I know she’s good, I went and smudged myself that night and DID feel different by the next morning.  The Denver obsession calmed immediately but didn’t go away…and with time…it started to come back stronger again.  At that point I really did just think my TRUE unseen friends had a plan for me and really wanted me to move.  I thought everything was kosher, so-to-speak.

But, on July 30th I did a psychic reading for this wonderful Apache medicine man I’d met days before…and as payment, he offered to do a spiritual cleansing of my house and me.  Sounded good to me, so I took him up on the offer.  As fate would have it, we clearly met for a reason because, seemingly, my house and I were in bad shape.  He lit sage to start the cleansing process and POOF…the sage burned up in 2 seconds (I exaggerate, but not much).  He lit another sprig of sage…same thing.  At that point, he’s got this concerned look on his face and is saying, “Hmmm….this is odd”…not what I wanted to hear!  I asked him what was wrong and he said that one sprig of sage should have lasted throughout the entire spiritual cleansing process of my little 1100 sq. ft. house and he hadn’t even started yet but 2 sprigs were history!  He then tried not to alarm me, but basically said that the energy in my house definitely needed to be cleaned out.  He lit yet another sprig of sage, and finally, this one at least lasted long enough for him to go room to room doing the cleansing ritual.  Then he started the smudging of me and explained that as he waved the smoke towards me with his eagle’s wing fan I was to picture the light of God coming into me, and as he waved the eagle’s wing fan away from me, I was to release anything that shouldn’t be with me.  I think it was on the 2nd swish of the fan away from me that I suddenly and dramatically felt something pull out of my solar plexus area and zoom away from me.  It shocked me and there was no denying something left my body/energy field.  I was like, “Whoa, what was THAT?!”  When he was done with the ritual, he tested things by lighting a fresh sprig of sage on fire to see how fast it burned, and this time, it burned slowly like sage normally does.  That proved the cleansing was effective.

Interesting to note that since that night, suddenly Denver has just kind of fizzled out.  I’ve kind of lost interest.  I still keep getting some Denver and Colorado signs, but I’m not totally obsessed with it like I was.  I truly feel calmer and different.  I was going to drive up for the 4 day Labor Day weekend coming up, but now I’m not even sure I really want to go.  And New Mexico, as annoying and depressing as the man situation here is, once again truly feels like “home”.  There is something about the land here that is just powerful for me.  If I ever want a chance at love, though, I think I need to move somewhere else…but…I also believe that if you are meant to meet someone, God WILL arrange it…even if you live in the Arctic.

It concerns me how I would have sworn it was me determining my interest in Denver, but it may not have been me all along…kind of scary.  There still may be a reason all this Colorado stuff keeps showing up, but I clearly need to do a better job of self protection.  I’m empathic, and that makes it all too easy to accidentally pick up unseen visitors you don’t want to pick up.  Maybe one way to delineate between me genuinely being led to something as opposed to inappropriately being influenced to do something is paying attention to how I feel.  Am I calm or frenetic?  A calm knowing means inner guidance.  Frenetic/obsessive thoughts mean it could be someone else messing with me.  Gotta stay vigilant.

In Light,

Wow! Maybe there IS something to this creating your reality stuff!

As some know,  I’ve really not been convinced that we can control everything and create our reality a la “The Secret”.  This has been a bone of contention between some friends and me.  One friend said to me recently that she thinks I’m a powerful creator and that all of these nonstop Denver signs I’m getting are coming from me…that I am drawing Denver because I’m focused on it.  I decided to test her theory,  skeptic that I am, and told myself that instead of maybe moving to Denver, that I am considering moving to Hawaii.  What happened?  A little while later I walk into a Starbucks here in Albuquerque and they are playing Hawaiian music on the sound system!  I’m sorry, but that is NOT common in New Mexico!

Maybe I really did delay that plane in Paris in 1995 when I got lost trying to get to Orly Airport and in my hysterically crying panic kept saying “My plane is an hour late” with intense emotion and sure enough,  the flight was delayed exactly one hour.  I was so upset because it was a once a week special flight and I had used up all my money.
