Then you don’t have to.

While it is never certain which spirits are going to show up in a channeling session, you do have some control.

If there is a spirit you don’t wish to speak with – a passed family member, friend or acquaintance – and they show up, you can ask them to leave.

I was visiting one of my sisters shortly after my Dad passed and he came to me wanting to speak to my sister. (He makes me sneeze rather violently and also makes my inner left eye itchy so he is hard to ignore). I let my sister know he wanted to speak with her but she was at a stage in her grief that she wasn’t ready to hear from him. I asked him to go and come back at a time when she was ready. He respected that and left (and thankfully stopped making me sneeze and my eye itch!).

But try not to place limits on your session.

Some people are afraid that a specific spirit that they know is going to say something that will upset them. This is why they don’t want to hear from them.

However, a specific spirit will come through because they have something to say that will help you. They may want to ask for forgiveness. They may want to tell you that there is nothing to feel guilty about. They may just want to tell you they love you. They just want to help you.

Don’t let fear hold you back.

You need that message. If you aren’t ready to hear it at the time, then you can ask them not to come through. But know that somehow and at some point they are going to get that message to you.

The longer you put it off, the more your fear will build. It is sometimes better to face things as they arise. Spirit isn’t coming back to reprimand you for something. They are coming back to give you messages of love, hope and guidance.

Keep an open mind and open heart and reap the benefits of loving guidance from Spirit.

We all have been through the loss of a loved one.

Everyone experiences loss in many different ways. But in the end, we know that what we want most is for our loved one to back here on earth with us.

So what if I told you, that you are able to connect with your passed loved one even after they have passed?

Or, receive special messages and signs from them?

How would you feel, if you could open yourself up to these wondrous gifts from above?

I am here to pass on guidance so you now can recognize that you are connecting with your loved ones.

Sometimes after the loss of a loved one we fail to see the gifts and messages they try to leave behind.

I feel we need to give thanks first for all the gifts they have already given us on while still on earth.

Then, we need to be open to receive their messages, signs and gifts they have to offer us from the other side.

Let’s dig in and see if you have had any of these thing happen to you.

After a loved one has passed, does a thought or a strong memory pass your mind and put a smile on your face? Or, you feel the love as if they were still here?

Know that this is a clear sign that spirit is and has connected with you.

Another way you may connect with a passed loved one is by feeling a cool breeze out of the blue.

You may even notice a drop in room temperature. Or it may feel more like a slight wind or coolness that goes past your face or body. You may get a chill or the goose bumps. Just remember to smile and think of the good old times with that loved one. I’m sure they will be smiling from the other side right back at you!

Have you have found a re-occurrence of coins (pennies, nickles, dimes etc.) in the oddest places? Or everywhere you go? On walks, vehicles, middle of the floor or on a couch?

Yes, I know sometimes people lose money here and there. But when you keep finding the same coins all over the place, you may have a sudden thought of a passed loved one. This is a very clear connection that your loved one is connecting with you and you have connected with them.

These are a few very simple signs that you are connecting with passed loved ones and they are showing that they are watching over you. What an amazing feeling it is to still have that connection with them. It’s just in a different way they can connect with you now.

Have you experienced any of these connections? Or do you have a story to tell? I would love to hear how you and your loved ones connect.

No, not at all.

You don’t have to be religious to connect with your Spirit Guide, Ascended Masters, Angels or any form of Spirit.

Spirit doesn’t see creed, colour, sex or sexual orientation.

Spirit sees beyond all these earthly trappings and sees only our true selves – our spirit and the light we are in the world. It doesn’t matter what you believe, or look like. Spirit wants to connect with each and every one of us to love and guide us.

Why do Guides that are tied to certain religions appear then?

While religious figures like Jesus, Mary, Vishnu, or Buddha, do show up as Guides or to relay messages, they don’t come with religious intent. They come to bring you support and guidance in the area they are most known for. Guides take on forms that match our needs. (Read about why Guides take particular forms).

For example, Mary is most known for being a Mother. When she shows up for someone it is usually for one of two reasons. One is, that person has a mothering/nurturing bent and Mary is there to help with that. The other is, that person needs a Mother figure in his/her own life and Mary has come to be that figure.

Can I be religious and connect with Spirit?

Yes, most definitely! The majority of faiths are rooted in connections with Spirit. Most religions believe in angels that serve as messengers or intermediaries for God. (Read more on this)

Anyone can connect with Spirit. Spirit is here to love and guide us all.
