Attention please!

attention

To all my fellow mediums, I need to ask a question:  How do you know when a thought isn’t just a random thought and actually a warning from spirit?  In retrospect, I had gotten warnings that my car was going to be hit while parked yesterday, but stupid me didn’t catch on.  I had this urge to fold in my driver’s side mirror, which I don’t normally do, and also felt I needed to park as close to (if not up on the sidewalk) the curb as possible.  But, I just thought I was being cautious in general and didn’t realize that hours later I’d come out to find someone had smashed my fender and bumper.  (The mirror was unscathed.)

Last year before my mugging in the parking lot of Santa Fe’s DeVargas Center, twice the thought popped into my head while in different stores…”keep an eye on your purse”.  But, I didn’t realize spirit guides were trying to warn me that I’d be attacked loading up my car.  (I put up a fight and got injured, and lost all my ID and needed to re-key my Honda to the tune of $1,200.)

In Los Angeles years ago I was heading from West Hollywood to Century City and was taking my normal route when, heading south on La Cienega above Santa Monica Blvd., this REALLY quiet voice/thought said, “Take Melrose.”  I dismissed it as nothing, and turned onto Santa Monica Blvd. as usual…well…MISTAKE.  Something had happened and traffic was backed up for decades.

During another sleepless night last night due to horrid pain and worries, I was trying to figure out how the heck to PAY ATTENTION to “the still small voice within” and my spirit friends’ warnings/advice when it’s SO subtle and quiet, almost like a whisper.  Can’t they yell?!  Oh wait, one DID yell once.  A voice loudly yelled “SEAT BELT!” in my ear when in a car with a careless driver just before he ran a stop sign.  But, that was a one time yelling.  I need to be yelled at, clearly, on a constant basis.  As I was trying to figure out an easy way to tell the difference from just one of my random and constant thoughts and an actual spirit message, I heard what sounded like a female voice say “Hi!” in my left ear.  (I had earplugs in too, along with my eye shielding mask and teeth retainers…so attractive.)  Now, I don’t know if that means this voice is going to start being more blatant and was just alerting me to her or what.  Oh wow!  As I typed that, Lisette, my fairy, popped into my head!  I think it was Lisette!  Now that I think about it, she DOES hang out on my left shoulder and plays with my earlobe.  A fellow psychic told me about her years ago and mentioned that I’d been having tickling feelings on my left ear and arm and that Lisette told her to tell me, “I am not a fly, so don’t swat me away.”  Ha!  I had JUST done that the day before!

Okay, Lisette, please STAY AROUND and help out this sometimes dense-headed and struggling gal.  I really need you right now with my current challenges regarding my health and other things.  I would also love to get input from other psychics and mediums, too, about how you recognize spirit messages vs. random, meaningless thoughts.  Do you get specific spirit guide images, etc.?

In Light,

Group Consciousness for Good

A group came through today to talk about how, when we band together, much can be accomplished for the good of the planet and ourselves.  They also touched on how those who are fighting progress/change are doing so out of fear…and will be left behind if they continue to dig in their heels.

In Light,

Atheria … with my unseen friends

 

Shamanic Healing Session

I just happened (yeah, riiiiight…just HAPPENED) to grab a free magazine in Taos Ski Valley on the 23rd of March that listed healers, MDs, chiropractors, etc. in the Taos area.  While flipping through it, a one page ad shared by two Native American grandmothers (that term was significant to me because of a dream I had in September of 2016) jumped out at me.  I was very drawn to write to both of them about my dream, that clearly felt beyond being a normal dream…that it was a message from spirit.  Both women very kindly replied, but Sandra’s message to me hit my heart hard.  My soul knew she was right, although my ego fought what she told me.  I decided to have a shamanic healing session with her today, and it was powerful.  I’m so thankful I’ve been led to her.  She is a truly lovely soul.

I have to admit, during the shamanic healing session, I started to get concerned about how much energy from her it seemingly used.  (I later learned that healing sessions don’t drain her at all, but actually fill her with energy.)  From an outsider’s standpoint, you’d think she’d be exhausted at the end, but, nope!  From the moment I walked into her lovely hogan, I started to feel the tingling of spirit.  During the session, I definitely felt a lot of tingling, especially at the back of my head and neck…where I have major damage that causes my constant migraine and neck pain for 22.5 years (as of today).  I had some involuntary muscle movement, and twice I felt a very sharp (knife like) pain at the base of my skull on the right hand side (my damage is more on the right than left) and on the right side of the base of my neck.  This did not scare me at all.  I actually took it as a good sign that spirit was doing a type of psychic surgery on me.

During the session, I picked up a name that was very distinct.  At first I brushed it off as nothing, but later, it came back again…urgently.  So, when the session was over, I asked Sandra if XXXXX (not posting it) meant something to her, and it definitely did…causing her to get the chills.  I was honored to be able to give her something in return for all that she gave me today.  She cleared out a lot of gunk in my chakras and energy body (not shocking that I was full of gunk) and did soul retrieval work on me.  At least 3 chunks of my soul had taken off and needed to be called back.  Interestingly, I learned that anytime you are put under general anesthesia, there is a risk of having your soul vamoose.  As one anesthesiologist told me a while ago, “Anesthesia is CONTROLLED DEATH.”  That’s actually true.  You have to be made unconscious enough to not feel the surgery, but not so unconscious you die.  Sandra explained that sometimes being so close to death kind of confuses your soul and it’s easy to have some of it wander off.  Now, I’m waaaaay oversimplifying what she explained, but you get the drift.

Immediately after the session today, my headache was BAD.  But, that is typical.  Whenever I’ve had any kind of treatments done on my head/neck, at first the pain is worse due to it being aggravated.  I know that movement of energy happened today, so I was not alarmed by my pain level being up.  In fact, hours later, the pain is lowering again.  It’s hard to explain, but I feel lighter right now.  I feel a shift in a good way.  I’m curious to see if anything happens during my sleep…which is definitely possible.  Any changes that will stem from today’s session may be gradual.

Because she’d not asked permission to bring forth my spirit animal, she didn’t do that today.  But, I would definitely like to get another session to have her do that.  It can be very empowering to meet and really bond with your spirit animal guardian.  In a meditation years ago where I was to meet my main spirit guide, I also saw a gorgeous black jaguar.  And, I had mountain lions/cougars show up in an Albuquerque healing session years ago, and in photos of me in Carmel, CA.  (I also had a medicine wheel show up in one Los Angeles hiking picture!)  So, I do suspect my spirit animal is a big cat of some sort.

If you are in the Taos/Arroyo Hondo area of New Mexico and want to have a great shamanic healing session, I would highly recommend Sandra “Sandy” Chestnutt of Earth Walk Medicine.

Blessings,

Atheria

Messages from Pets in Spirit – Pippin’s Story

20170924_112724Previously 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.

FB_IMG_1503275820373

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.

CoincidenceI 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.

Blessings,

Relay Channeling Today: Love is a Noun

As the river of time does not flow in one direction only, but in all directions simultaneously, so too does the energy that is love.  For love cannot be constrained by limits the human mind puts on it.  Love is energy.  Love is a vibration, as are all things.  It’s not simply an emotion.  There are beings who do not experience emotional love, yet live love.  They are love.  We understand that this difference may be confusing for some to understand.  Logic won’t be useful in this case either.  How is that for a test?  We are asking you to look beyond both your emotional side and your logical side.  But, it is possible to do.  It is a knowing that resides within your soul.  This is not connected to your brain.  And it’s not colored by feelings in your heart.  It is as pure as anything can possibly be that is from the Light.

Someone once said that love is a verb, as in “to love someone”.  We would argue that love is a noun, to put it in English language terms.  It’s a living, breathing being.  As all things are connected through the vibration that is Light, and breathes in unison, love glows with spirit and is a part of the Light that links everyone and everything.  When our channel had her spontaneous rebirthing experience years ago at Ojo Caliente, she got a glimpse of what we speak of.  For a few seconds she saw that all was alive and connected.  She could see walls, chairs, people, air…yes…she could see the air…were all breathing Light in unison and were connected as One.  We needed to trigger that event in her life to open her up to what is possible when you release all preconceived ideas about what is real and what isn’t.  Reality is only reality until you experience different for yourself.  Skeptics only believe in what they can see and touch.  But, take a skeptic and put him or her into a bent universe where dimensions can be traveled in a fraction of a second, and he or she will never be the same.  The skeptic’s reality has just been blown when a different reality is experienced.  You don’t know what you don’t know until you know it.

When we say “know it”…once again, this is not purely in the brain.  The logical mind is not the best resource to rely on.  You will notice a difference when the cells of your entire being KNOW truth.  It’s almost as if your entire I.Q. has moved out of your head and into your various bodies (physical, astral, etheric, etc.).  There is a clarity and matter-of-fact feeling that will alert you that what you are experiencing is pure potentiality.  There is a limitlessness in pure potentiality.

Do not limit who and what you are.  YOU are limitless potentiality.

In your service,
The Great White Brotherhood

(For those who don’t know, The Great White Brotherhood is a collective of Masters and advanced spiritual teachers.  I feel bad that I always get a twinge of “Oh jeez, I hope people don’t think this is some white supremacy thing.”  It’s not related to race AT ALL.  These are a group of high level beings that come from the Light, so that’s all their name refers to.  Interestingly, they signed off with “In your service”.  That just goes to show that they do not see us as lesser beings.  By the way, you can tell that the relay channeling above is really not from me because I am nowhere near as loving as they are.  I’m working on that fact, but have a long way to go! ~ Atheria

On another note, I have been counting down the days until I can leave New Mexico for the 3rd and final time on November 14th — yeah…riiiiight — “You know, if you leave you’ll come right back.  There are 2 types of people in New Mexico:  those born and raised here with lots of family and those called here…and you were called.” [said to me before I left in April 2016 by a Ph.D. know-it-all friend that annoys me but I adore her and, damn it, she was right] and just today, a possible job showed up in my beloved Taos.  I swear to God, this state…and especially Taos…is freaking aggressive!  I met one native New Mexican in 2004 who had left and returned to New Mexico 11 times!  Recalling our rental car desk conversation, I now feel better about my life.  HA HA!  Anyway, back in 2006 when I lived here the first time, a Santa Fe acquaintance brought me here for dinner one evening.  Now, it was nice back then, but WOW has it grown and gotten even better!  For anyone who thinks New Mexico is just blah desert…ummmm…WRONG!)

Lessons Learned from a Power Outage and Death as a Teacher

Granted, what happened last night was nothing compared to what people in Houston, Texas and all of Florida are dealing with right now from the hurricanes, but the many hours with no electricity and no cell service (for the most part…cell towers would work for 10 seconds and then be down for 20 minutes) was a wake up call.  Over a large area that included Nambe and Pojoaque (possibly a bigger area than that) there was a power outage just before 7:30 p.m. when it was starting to get dark.  Power wasn’t restored until just after 11:00 p.m. where I live.  It really made all of us realize just how dependent on modern conveniences we are.  I almost forgot how to light a candle.  Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but the fact I could only find ONE candle was annoying.  I could have sworn I had a bunch.  Note to self:  Get more candles.

Being yoga addicted as I am, I attempted to do my nightly hour long yoga practice in the dark…with that one pitiful candle, that didn’t emit much light, as my luminescence.  It was a learning experience.  Did you know that when you can’t see your body or see where you are in position to stationary objects, it’s REALLY disorienting?  It was an odd experience.  I had zero balance and kept falling over.  It was almost like being out of body or something where the me that I know as Atheria was without this clothing I know as my physical body.  I couldn’t tell where the physical me was.

After completing a very awkward yoga session having fallen 20 times, I threw on a robe and went outside to see what was going on.  And, WOW.  Stars…billions of stars.  It literally made me gasp.  With all ambient light gone, you could see everything.  I just stared at the sky with fellow neighbors in awe.  It was at that moment that I realized there really was a major lesson from last night’s situation.  Stop and look up.  Stop and look period.  Most people go through the day in such a rush and so distracted, we don’t SEE.  I said to myself, “Pay attention to this and everything from now on.”

Another lesson from last night had to do with this question:  Why is it we only meet neighbors during a crisis?

When I lived in Los Angeles during the big 1994 earthquake and the 1992 riots, I met neighbors for the first time I’d lived next to for YEARS.  Why do we all stay locked up in our apartments or houses and never come out to meet each other?  That’s sad…and very common.  It’s more common in major cities like Los Angeles, but it does happen in smaller New Mexico cities and towns too.  When I owned a house for years in Northwest Albuquerque, although I met a few neighbors, most I never got to know.  Most you never even saw.  They were silent and invisible.  In retrospect, it was odd.  Maybe the one good thing from hurricanes Harvey and Irma is that those impacted met their neighbors and they all helped each other.  Strangers helped other strangers expecting nothing in return.  It should be like that all the time.

On a practical note, a really good tip I learned from some TV news report about Harvey and Irma is that you should always keep a laptop fully charged.  In an emergency, it can serve as a cell phone charger.  My scientist friend is currently in Florida working with FEMA to help people, and she emailed me saying that what they’ve found to be the most beneficial for cut off from power people are those crank powered radios that have built in USB ports.  Also, my friend who just got back from Switzerland said that this cell phone charger made by Anker is freaking awesome and you get about 8 full cell charges from one fully charged Anker.  I had never heard of them, and had to Google them.  This looks like the model she has:  https://www.anker.com/products/variant/Astro-E1-6700mAh-Portable-Charger/A1211013

On a funny note, I got all excited last night when I had enough pre-ground coffee sitting in my grinder’s collection cup to make coffee this morning.  I made a mental note to always grind some extra in case of emergencies.  But then reality hit and I remembered that I wouldn’t be able to make coffee anyway without electricity!  All I can say is THANK GOD THE POWER CAME BACK BEFORE MORNING.  Note to self:  Get a propane fueled little one burner stove and a camping coffee maker.

This whole outage last night has made me more curious to learn survival techniques.  That is not a bad thing for everyone to learn.  And, also, don’t take things for granted.  Be prepared for emergencies.  In my case, not being able to make coffee does qualify for an emergency.  LOL!  But, seriously, do stock up on some basic supplies.  I need to buy batteries too.  I have flashlights with no working batteries.  I did use my cell phone’s flashlight some, though, which was very helpful.  Don’t wait until a category 5 hurricane is headed directly at you to run to Walmart with 1,000,000 other people frantic to buy necessities.

This is kind of related, but not.  Bob just interviewed this nomad who lives on the road and who is extremely creative about how to get Internet service in remote areas without spending $1,000 a month.  I love people who are great at figuring out the cheapest and most workable ways to do things.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBoPjR3qSi0

And speaking of awesome Bob, he just lost a friend whose declining health caused him to end his own life.  Bob just posted 2 videos about life and death…and REALLY living…and not regretting things when it’s your turn to go that are spiritually based and important.  You may or may not agree with choosing when pass over to the Other Side, but he brings up very valid thoughts.  At the very least, he brings up things to think about so that when you are at the end of your life, you don’t have regrets.  (Note:  There is a HUGE difference between being suicidal because you’re depressed…DON’T DO IT…and compassionate euthanasia/assisted suicide when someone has zero quality of life and is horribly suffering.)
