Our loved ones DO watch over us…and use whatever chance they get to say hello. 🙂
Our loved ones DO watch over us…and use whatever chance they get to say hello. 🙂
I met a woman yesterday while at Chimayo Rocks (great Espanola, NM crystals/gem shop) who had lost her beloved little dog in the past few days after a neighbor’s Rottweiler mauled it. 😦 Understandably, she was very emotional. While talking to her, she mentioned that this cat her family had never seen before suddenly showed up at her trailer’s front door…and then marched on into her home and acted like it had lived there forever. It totally made itself at home. As she was telling me this, I got a strong “hit” that the soul of her dog had sent the cat, that the dog was influencing it. I told her that and it seemed to give her some peace.
This is not the first time I’ve heard a story like this. Years ago in Los Angeles this couple told me that after they’d lost their black dog, 3 days later this black cat showed up at their front door…and marched on into their house, went up the stairs to the 2nd floor, jumped up on their bed, and curled up in the exact spot their dog had always slept on. Clearly, their dog had sent the cat.
When Bodhi passed on September 25, 2012, besides the fact that he walked into the kitchen in spirit 3 days later…freaking out Chakra, one day I suddenly heard Karma howling like she was being tortured. I’d never heard her howl like that. I dropped what I was doing in the kitchen and ran to the bathroom, where I found her sitting in the bathtub at the water faucet…with this look on her face of “Mom! Turn the water on!” She kept looking at the faucet. I turned the water on with a small stream of water, and she calmed down, seemed happy, and watched the water flow. I can’t remember now, but I do think she started drinking the flowing water. Now, anyone who has cats knows that a lot of cats LOVE to drink from water faucets (Bleu is obsessed and won’t drink from a bowl), but Karma had NEVER EVER shown interest in running water, especially in the bathtub. Bodhi is the one who did that all the time. Karma took on Bodhi’s old behavior, and continued to do so for a long time. I am convinced Bodhi, in spirit, was influencing Karma to sit in the tub and ask to drink running water.
I just found this video shortly before Bodhi crossed over the Rainbow Bridge unexpectedly, as he sat in the tub. I miss him and Karma every single day.
So, not only can our beloved pets give us other types of signs from the Other Side of the veil, they can indeed influence other animals to show us they are still around in spirit.
Update: I forgot to add that the kitty that marched into the Espanola woman’s trailer this week is pregnant and about to have kittens any minute. So the family will have A LOT of pets, courtesy of their dog in spirit. 🙂
I thought I would attempt some channeling today before heading off to a yoga class with the fabulous Jessamyn Stanley, and, thankfully…The Ancient Ones showed up! They talked about reintegrating ALL aspects of who we are.
I really do need to get a real video camera (am just using a regular Canon camera) and video editing software. If you want to fast forward to 2:55, you can skip me getting into trance…which isn’t terribly eventful.
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.
