Awareness of Spirit – Noticing the Signs

I am a medium, and I communicate with spirits every day. I know it may seem like I have a superpower but being a medium just means that I am kind of the messenger, the interpreter for spirits on the other side of the veil.

Everyone receives messages from spirits, not just people like me who call themselves mediums. In a sense, everyone is a medium. Everyone has the gift to communicate to those who have left the physical world.

As you bring your awareness to this ability to receive messages, know that the first way to get in touch with this gift is to be open. As you open your heart and trust that it is possible to communicate or receive signs, then your friends, family members, and loved ones from the spirit world bring you more powerful messages.

Sometimes, the messages are simple. You may see a beautiful monarch butterfly outside and at that exact moment you are thinking of your mom. Maybe a song comes on the radio with the perfect words you needed to hear or its the song that you and your friend listened to all the time.

See, they don’t always bring you really big messages because you often do not need more than a slight nudge or moment of validation to know that you are following the right path in life.

There are other times when they do speak a little loudly through your thoughts, feelings, and memories. If you suddenly find yourself remembering a memory of your loved one, maybe even one that was really hysterical, cute, or whimsical then know they are trying to say, “hello, I’m here with you, right now, right now I’m here with you.”

Spirits have different ways of communicating. As a medium, I often see images of spirits in my mind’s eye or in dreams, and I hear them speak to me as they relay messages for me to deliver to others. They can be rather funny too though.

They occasionally like to move things around or flicker the lights or my favorite one is ringing my doorbell. Today, it happened again. I woke up to the doorbell ringing, but I was the only one that heard it. One time, when I was sleeping, I heard the doorbell ring, and at the exact same moment I saw an image of one of my beloved cats, who is now in the spirit world, standing at the front door.  I thought, “oh, he must have come by to say hi.”

On a family member’s birthday, I had a similar thing happen where I was asleep and heard the doorbell ring and saw an image of my deceased grandmother standing at the front door with a nice pretty dress with flowers like she was coming to attend the party. She was also the same grandmother who knocked three times on my windows for several weeks in a row to make sure I didn’t forget about the anniversary of her passing.

When spirits want to get your attention, know that they will find a way, but they don’t want to scare you. They want to remind you to laugh more, to let love be a big part of your life, to be a little goofy at times. They want to let you know that they are okay and that they support you in your life. They want you to know that it is awesome when you are just being you.

Here are 7 tips for communicating with spirits and holding a space for joy:

  1. Joyful Memories – Bring forward memories of your loved ones, happy moments, fun photos, keepsakes, anything that places a reminder of their energy in your heart.
  2. Gratitude for Life – In your daily life, notice the small details and show gratitude for every tiny bit of it. Being grateful is being aware.
  3. Thank the Stars When you have an extraordinary day, something that happens out of the blue that brings a big smile to your face, know that you were guided by the stars in the heavens above.
  4. Celebrate Connections – Reach out to others in your life to create strong bonds and support systems. These connections are your soul family.
  5. Cherish Every Moment – Life is short and can pass by in a blink of an eye so allow yourself to fully feel love and be present in every experience.
  6. Notice Nature – Spirit is overflowing in nature – in the trees, the flowers, the birds, in the sky, everywhere. The simplest signs in nature can bring the greatest inspiration.
  7. Pray, Breathe, and Meditate – Slow down at times and practice pauses in life where you are able to quiet your mind long enough to hear the messages in your heart. That is your lifeline to the spirit world.

Chakra Awakening – Sacral Chakra – Create With Passion and Purpose

The sacral chakra is the creative space for your energy and is reflected in all areas of your life. As the energy flows through your chakras, the sacral chakra, drives the force of passion by opening doorways to experiences which reflect this passion and build on it and show the world who you are.

You are a sensitive soul at times, and build a brighter light by following your purpose, your calling, your reason for getting up to watch the sunrise or explore the new adventures which are waiting for you.

When you tap into your sacral chakra, you are digging deep into the emotional body of who you are as a soul, but also who you would like to be in this life, as a radiant joy, as a beaming candle, as a mentor for others to show how they may also follow what brings them that infinite state of joy.

Who you are is not what you see, it’s what you feel. It’s what you know when you have investigated all of the things in this life which interest you and bring you excitement as though you are a kid in a candy store.

When you are led by the energy of your sacral chakra, there is a sensual dance that comes to life within you. It allows the kundalini energy to begin to rise to your solar plexus, your powerhouse, and turn those wheels toward the fortune of success and abundance.

When you allow yourself to feel through your sacral chakra, you open your energy to not only feeling what is coming towards you from spirit and from other souls, but also to release that which no longer needs to be a part of your world.

In that releasing, you may feel that deeper shift, that need to cry or to feel as though you have been broken into a million pieces, but that release is needed and it is not to tell you that you are weak or broken, for you are really none of those at all.

You are healed in that release. 

You are healed the moment you let go. The moment you shed a tear, one, two, or many more, you let go long enough to see the real you and to know that even though you may have walked a difficult journey in this life, know that you survived, and you still have that passion intact.

Nothing can take that away. That is your gift from the universe because the universe wants you to be happy and share this happiness with others and to live from the full expression of your creative power.

Creativity is not just for those who are artists or writers or any number of activities, hobbies, and careers that connect deeply to that creative mode. Your sacral chakra is the creative force for many areas of your life, and allowing that energy to flow through strongly, brings an elevated level of your true expression.  Creativity is simply thinking and feeling beyond your physical form.

The sacral chakra allows you to connect an energetic lifeline to this power within you. When you are searching for a new perspective, a unique answer to a circumstance, or the inspiration for your next step in life, attune your energy to the sacral chakra, meditate within this space, and really listen to what is being said and what you are feeling.

Led by passion, catapulted by purpose, your sacral chakra awaits what is next for you to experience, what next dance you choose, where your energy will take you. It is the random mysteries of life, the surprises along the way, and the playfulness of letting go which nourish your sacral chakra and allow you to breathe in the biggest breath of life.
