Happy Halloween-time, everyone! William Mumler is credited with some of the best spirit photos ever taken. He was an amateur photographer in the late 1800s, after the Civil War, when so many Americans were grieving for so many lost loved ones. Mumler filled a void with his work, especially his most famous photo (top left) […]
Previously I’ve blogged about how my 2 cats, Karma and Bodhi, (who I miss every single day 4 and 5 years later) have found ways to get through to me…going so far as to DEMATERIALIZE cat treats (not kidding) on their altar. I’ve heard lots of other stories from strangers and friends about how their pets have found ways to break through the veil and let them know they are also spiritual beings and that they will be waiting for us on the Other Side when it’s our time to cross over. One such event happened to me today as a message for a friend who lost his beloved 7 year old dog named Pippin unexpectedly.
Before going to my astrology group, I decided to venture off in Santa Fe and walk around the wonderful art filled Canyon Road area. I didn’t have lots of extra time, so I kind of did a fast tour around. (By the way…there are fabulous artists in Santa Fe and it’s the 3rd largest art market in the USA.) Just as I was running out of time and needed to head back to my car, I glanced over to see the above sign for Pippin Contemporary Gallery. I got an instant spirit smack and knew that it was a message from Pippin for his human daddy. I emailed the picture and my feeling about it to my friend, and he said that he’s felt Pippin around him in spirit today…and that this “coincidence” confirmed that fact.
I was reading a book by a famous psychic years ago where she said that anything we notice during the day is a message. No 2 people notice the exact same things. When something “randomly” catches your eye, pay attention to it. It’s God’s way of getting messages through to us. It’s also our loved ones in spirit’s way of getting messages through to us…both human and animal.
On a personal note, I am much more connected to animals than humans. It’ll be 5 years tomorrow that I lost Bodhi. The grief I felt losing him…and then Karma less than a year later…is still with me. Animals love unconditionally. Animals ARE love incarnate. I hope that Pippin comes to my friend in dreams as my cats have, and allows him to hold his fur child again.
I’ve done a couple of readings lately that have gone super well, and it never ceases to amaze me what our unseen loved ones will bring through to prove that they are who they say they are. Sometimes it’s specific health stuff (like in a recent case where the woman in spirit passed from lung cancer and I could hear her smoker’s raspy laugh) or something serious. But other times it’s funny things like the “hot fudge cake” I got years ago from a spirit. Come to find out, that was the person’s very favorite dessert and even on the Other Side…the soul was thinking of food! 🙂
Before I sign off, I do want to link another artist’s website whose work I discovered today and loooove. I adore horses, so you’ll see why I love her work: Siri Hollander
Stay open for signs from your pets in spirit. They, just like human loved ones, often find ways to let us know that they are still around and that they do love us. May Pippin be running free on the Other Side and may my friend find a little bit of peace from what happened today.
I had a great reading this morning (it’s been almost 3 years) with a medium in Vermont who has proven herself to be very good in the past. I mean, like freaky good. Of course, none of us is ever 100% on point, and timeframe is very hard to pinpoint, but almost everything she’s ever seen has happened…except the love stuff. Of course! LOL
I’m not going to post the entire reading here, but some friends got a lengthy breakdown by email whether they wanted it or not. Ha Ha! All I’ll say is that changes ARE coming and there’s a good reason why I’ve been pushing back about committing to the apartment I’ve been living in since November regarding signing a new year long lease. According to Karen, I will indeed be moving again for a new job…not outside of New Mexico though. Could it be a job shows up in Taos? I wouldn’t be shocked. All I know is that it’ll be very different work from what I’ve been doing…GOOD! Also, she saw my spiritual work taking root soon due to a chance encounter with some people at a crystal/gem/New Age show.
At the end of the reading I asked her about my name. I was born with Carrie Jane Ryan but was given Atheria in 1998 by my unseen friends. I didn’t accept the name until March of 1999 though. I feel like Atheria, not Carrie Ryan, but a concern I do have is that regarding my spiritual work, is Atheria too “woo woo” to be taken seriously? A British medium friend of mine years ago said that spirit referred to me as Carrie when the topic was something serious and as Atheria when things were fun/light/silly. That’s kind of telling. To be honest, I’d like to be serious yet fun. Maybe I need to merge the names? Anyway, Karen’s feedback was that she really liked the name Atheria, but that it is hard to pronounce and remember, and I need to be remembered. And she did somewhat agree with my concern that I may not be taken seriously enough as Atheria. So, I have some thinking to do. Atheria IS my soul name. That’s a fact. Yes, we all have eternal soul names and then temporary incarnated human names. I will say it gets confusing because at my conservative day job I have to be Carrie. Then, everywhere else I’m Atheria. But, some random people call me C.J. I get confused about what name to give!
On a different note, my unseen friends have been signaling me with butterflies when they want me to note that I’m moving in the right direction. Ever since we agreed to a butterfly or butterflies being my sign from them, I’m tripping over butterflies! It’s funny. In Santa Fe today after my reading with Karen, I Instagrammed these two things that happened right after each other.
Whoever I am… :o)
I decided to try to talk to Grandmother Taos Mountain…and this happened.
Atheria: Grandmother Mountain, what do you want from me?
Grandmother: I want what is best for you.
A: What’s best for me?
G: Inner peace and fulfilment along with the full expression of your true self.
A: What does that entail? Can you elaborate?
G: You are meant to be a free soul…freed from the confines of what society tells you who you should be. You have come here at this time in the planet’s history to not only be a light bearer, but also a warrior for the light. You ARE a warrior for truth.
A: If I’m a warrior for the light, how do I pay the bills? How do I earn a living?
G: Trust that money will flow to you that meets your true needs…not what you THINK you need.
A: Well, that is freaking scary!
G: Fear is from the dark.
A: That’s easy for you to say. You aren’t down here living in the 3D/material world where rent needs to be paid and food needs to be purchased…not to mention vet bills.
G: Know that you will be provided for…and you will be. Spirit will not abandon you if you commit yourself to being what you’re meant to be.
A: What is it about Taos (besides you being there) that makes me resonate with the place so much?
G: Not only have you lived in this area in prior human lives, but your personal vibration meshes with the ley lines that cross through the Taos area and create a pulse of energy. As everyone vibrates energetically at a certain tone, the music that is Taos resonates with your soul’s song.
A: Well that is beautiful!
G: The cliché, “Beauty comes from within…not without” has its origin in truth.
A: I’m feeling rather “Conversations with God” about this conversation. 🙂 I know Neale just sat down with pen and paper and asked questions and allowed himself to hear the answers.
G: I will let you call this “Conversations with Grandmother”.
A: Does that mean this will be an ongoing thing?
G: Yes it does…should you choose it. Your cooperation is needed, and you’ve not been the most cooperative child.
A: Who are you calling child?!
G: If the shoe fits.
G: I rest my case.
A: Okay, that did make me laugh.
G: Humor is quite healing.
A: I need a lot of healing. I’m so tired of 21+ years of increasingly bad head and neck pain. 😦 Would you suggest I go down to Brazil and see John of God?
G: You do not need to travel that far to be healed, although he IS a worker for the divine. If it will be too much of a hardship to fly down to Brazil and make your way to Abadiânia, we (yes…we are actually a Council of Grandmothers, not singular, although we speak as one united voice) suggest you travel within for healing. As within, so without. You have the power to heal yourself that you have continuously given away to others.
A: I’ve tried to heal myself, really, but I just don’t know what I’m doing.
G: Take the image the dolphin gave you telepathically in Hawaii and focus on it both in your third eye and also see it at the base of your skull and middle of neck. The image of the triangle within a triangle with a sideways oval within an oval over the top point of the triangle is infused with Taos’ energy. You did notice a while back that the town emblem looks very much like what the dolphin sent you with the words, “This will heal you.” Also, it needs to be noted that not speaking your truth negatively impacts your neck via the throat chakra.
A: Yes, I did notice that and blogged about it earlier. It kind of freaked me out a bit when I had the “Ah ha!” moment.
G: Why “freak out” when you’ve been given a blessing? We’d think you’d be proud and happy.
A: Well, I thought it was downright cool, but sometimes it gets overwhelming when I realize just how planned out and guided things are by my unseen friends. I’m a control freak and having to accept that I’m not totally in charge and that there are indeed wheels turning behind the scenes fills me with both awe and insecurity.
G: The idea of control comes from the ego. Let go of your need to control everything. It does not serve you. Trust that you ARE being guided in a way that will lead to your highest good and greatest growth.
A: I’ll try.
G: Either do or do not do. There is no try. Didn’t someone once say that? 😉
A: You’re starting to get aggravating.
G: Tough love.
A: I’m tempted to stick my tongue out again but won’t.
G: Good. You’re growing already.
A: Well, I’ve got some stuff to do, so I need to take off. And, it’s Super Bowl Sunday!
G: I love you and look forward to continuing this dialogue. Take care, sweet child.
A: I’m 50!
G: If you knew my age, well, let’s just say your head would explode. 50 is just the tip of existence.
A: Thank you. And thank you for the quality job that brought me back to New Mexico for the 3rd time. I do appreciate it even though it’s not work that calls to my soul. At least I don’t have to worry about money and health insurance right now, etc.
G: You’re welcome. See? I can meet you half way. But, the job was just a way to get you back here.
A: I appreciate it…really…
G: Blessings to you. ~ Grandmother (Taos) Mountain and the Council of 7.
Years ago in Los Angeles I went for a reading (because we psychics can’t read ourselves…annoyingly…and I wasn’t totally aware of just how weird my life was going to get back then — hadn’t started channeling yet) with medium Eddie Cabral and it turned out to be a very interesting session. Amongst the many interesting things he told me that hour, he brought through the spirit of my brother. Now, that wouldn’t be shocking except for the fact that I didn’t have a brother who died…or so I thought. As I was sitting there listening to what Eddie was saying, all I could think of at first was that there was just me and my younger sister as siblings. All of a sudden, though, I had this AH HA moment where I remembered that after my sister was born, mom did get pregnant again…but had a miscarriage that was pretty bad. (Well, all miscarriages are bad.) Mom had wanted to have 4 kids, but after the miscarriage and complications…opted to stop at the 2 daughters she had. (Eerily, years later during a surgery mom was undergoing, doctors found what they called a “hairy tooth” inside her that they suspected was the twin of the other baby she lost…although that was never totally proven.) So Eddie was passing along messages from the pregnancy mom lost. The baby would have been a boy had its soul not had to leave early for some reason.
To get back to what Eddie was bringing through, the spirit of my brother exclaimed…somewhat jealously, “You got the pearls! You got the pearls!” I was like, “What pearls?” Clearly he felt that HE was meant to get the pearls had he been born. Eddie and I realized that this spirit did not mean literal pearls. The pearls were symbolic meaning a special spiritual gift. I just found this information when I Googled pearl symbolism. http://www.allaboutheaven.org/symbols/496/123/pearl
Now, many years later, I am feeling a stronger and stronger pull to do more important work than the office work that has been my main livelihood for decades. I’ve been highly underutilizing my pearls. I’m actually going to meditate like I should have been doing regularly long ago as I look for clarity and direction from spirit. Maybe my brother on the Other Side can help. This story I shared goes to show you that even when a spirit doesn’t make it to physical birth…or if it passes quickly after being born…it continues to live on and grow up on the Other Side.
On another note, I blogged recently about how I have been having things happen here in my new apartment that have led me to believe there is some kind of vortex in the kitchen or, at the very least, that it’s haunted. Last night there were more noises in the kitchen and then my necklaces that are hanging on hooks on my bedroom closet door suddenly all were strongly shaking around loudly in the wee hours of the morning. Now, Bleu MIGHT have caused the necklaces to shake around if he quickly pushed open the door…but I didn’t catch him in the act. But, while brushing my teeth this morning in the bathroom, I turned toward the door and clearly saw a ball of light…low to the floor…go in front of the bathroom door from the living room into the bedroom! I’ve been telling Bodhi and Karma (2 of my cats that passed away years ago) how much I miss them lately, so my friends and I are wondering if it was one of my fur babies in spirit stopping by. I sure hope so.
Many years ago in Los Angeles I was honored to have the amazing soul known as Sitting Bull show up during a channeling practice session. He, along with White Feather, just came through for an end of 2016 message about the situation with the Standing Rock people. His request of everyone, and his warning to all people…should be heeded.
It takes me almost 3 minutes to be able to speak. Sorry I don’t have video editing ability here! And, try to ignore Chakra getting in the way! And please disregard the bags under my eyes. I’ve not been sleeping again lately.
May 2017 be a much better year than 2016. Blessings to all…
For those who don’t know, magical New Mexico called me back to it for a 3rd (and final) time. I moved back to this powerful state on the 7th of November for a quality “day job” that alluded me in Colorado. I have a fabulous apartment on Native American land (can’t give too many specifics due to a stalker) where there are few people…and millions of stars that sparkle in the night sky. Supposedly, there is quite a bit of UFO activity here too. I would not be surprised at all. People have been lovely to me, and I’ve come to the realization that a big city is NOT for me anymore. Give me small town America!
When I moved into this apartment I didn’t notice anything “odd” and the energy felt fine. I have been meaning to smudge the place, just in case, but keep forgetting to do a cleansing. It’s always good practice to do an energetic cleansing of any new place you move into, even if nothing bad happened there. A good sign that the energy here is okay is that Chakra, my 9 year old brown tabby cat, has stopped barfing all the time (only 2 episodes since the 7th). Where we were living in Westminster, CO, she barfed 1-2 times a day. I thought it was the food, but clearly it was the environment. Animals, especially cats, are very sensitive to energy. This place is much more peaceful.
Anyway, while getting ready to drive to Santa Fe for the day to take care of a bunch of errands, I was in my kitchen packing a health food lunch to bring with me when all of a sudden I felt this dramatic pressure shift sensation in my head…and especially in my right (clairaudient) ear. If you could have seen me, you would have seen me scrunching up my face as I tried to figure out what was going on. Then there was this very hard to hear…like it was FAR off in the distance…sound in my right ear like a radio station was trying to tune in with bad reception. I have never had this happen before. I asked who was there as I was sure it was someone in spirit, but couldn’t get a clear answer. I do think it MIGHT have been White Feather as I did see (clairvoyantly) a white feather image in my head. But, I am not 100% sure it was him as he doesn’t show up that often anymore. That being said, since I’m living on Native land…it could have been him. After the ear thing, I started feeling like I was about to go into trance, but it didn’t happen. I did feel strong tingling throughout my body though.
As I’m a very logical person and someone skeptical, I always look for a simple explanation for weird occurrences, and turned off the fish tank pump to see if my ear was creating some background noise from that. Now, turning the filter/pump off DID lesson the ear noise, but it didn’t totally go away. Then I went into the bedroom, and it stopped. I went back into the kitchen, and the tingling, trance feeling, and ear thing came back. I went into the bathroom, and it stopped. Back into the kitchen, and it started again. There is something in my kitchen! The word that comes to mind is VORTEX.
As NOTHING HAPPENS BY ACCIDENT OR COINCIDENCE, late in my Santa Fe day full of errands, I pulled into Sprouts Market (as my last stop)…to see an unexpected Starbucks. I was way past due for my 3 p.m. daily caffeine, and ran into Starbucks after grocery shopping to get a cup of coffee for the drive home. On my way out, I noticed a hallway and stuck my head around the corner to look. I surprisingly saw a bunch of shops/stores in an indoor mall. I didn’t realize it was a real mall until I walked down to see this Mini Cooper on display. How a good size shopping mall can be hidden is beyond me! I had NO idea this place existed and have been in Santa Fe numerous times for years! Something “called” me to keep walking and exploring even though I really needed to get back home. The DeVargas Center has some great shops, including specialty pet stores, fancy kitchen gadget stores, an Aveda salon, etc. I liked all of it, but this one store called Om Blessings drew me to it and I got talking to a very friendly woman who worked there and another great woman following her passion who was selling beautiful essential oil/herb/tea gift sets. During our conversation, I learned that 3 psychic mediums came into the store today, and vortexes came up with all of them! Granted, if you are into metaphysics, you occasionally talk about vortexes, but…at least for me…it’s not a common occurrence. I mean, I don’t walk up to strangers on a regular basis and mention that I think there’s a vortex in my kitchen. But, 3 of us had mentioned vortexes to the store owner/employee today! She even mentioned that something seemed to be drawing psychic mediums into the store today, like we were being “called”.
I’ve been back in New Mexico for less than 2 weeks and already I feel like things are subtly aligning. For example, last weekend I drove to my beloved Taos for the day and when I parked Ruby in the lot I typically park in, I saw something lumped up next to her spot but ignored it. Later, when I came back to the car, the lump was interesting looking enough that i checked it out. And THIS is what it was!
Taos gifted me once again! I took it as a sign that yes, I’m where I’m supposed to be. New Mexico does that kind of thing. For what this state lacks in economy or glittery 3D distractions, it makes up for in terms of spiritual growth and power. The lack of people and mind numbing things to do, forces one to go within…to heal…and grow. My friend had a dream years ago about New Mexico (when she was living in Illinois) where she was told, “People come here to heal.” Yep.
It’s getting late, and I’m pooped, but I cannot wait to see what happens next. I know that things here are going to get interesting!
