Loving Our Souls In Crazy Times




I can't recall when I first believed that perhaps I was not good enough.  Perhaps it was an early childhood experience, perhaps it was ideas I absorbed from the media. Wherever that belief came from is irrelevant. The fact is, not only I, but the world at large seems to be in a lack of self love crisis.

What does self love mean anyway, its a term used loosely in self development and spiritual circles. You hear repeatedly, How can anyone love you if you don't love yourself? If you are ill, you are told you are not loving yourself enough, if you are lonely you are told to love yourself more.

As I pondered these questions, I had a moment of insight. Perhaps if we were truly clear on who we are, self love would be automatic.  Our true selves are all made from the same indestructible force, our souls.  When we have glimpses of who we truly are, we automatically feel good. When we let our souls out to play and to breathe, we feel good, we love life, we love us...this is our true nature.

Abraham, channeled by Esther Hicks reminds us that we are here inhabiting a body to experience contrast.  The whole deal of having a life here on earth according to Abraham is that we can experience variety in a way not obtainable in the Spirit World. Here on earth we get to experiment with experiences in unique ways that somehow allows our development as a soul to grow.  The object of the game it seems is to work out who we truly are and come from that authentic place in all our dealings here on earth.

When we look in the mirror at our finite bodies, we see imperfection, when we look at various aspects in our lives we imagine that the grass may be greener on the other side. We are looking for perfection in things that are imperfect.

I now choose to accept all my imperfections of my 57 year old body, rejoice in the beauty I have in my life and to know that my soul is who I am and my soul can never be tainted, no matter what layers cover it. At the end of the day, at the end of my life, my perfect soul will live on.

I leave you below with some hot tips from Affirmation Queen Louise Hay.

Next month, I will be in beautiful Hawaii attending a course so I will not publish in December. However,  I will do a New Years Eve post to end the year. Until then, be kind to your beautiful soul self !

12 Commandments To Help You Learn How To Love Yourself  


by Louise Hay


Stop All Criticism.
Criticism never changes a thing. Refuse to criticize yourself. Accept yourself exactly as you are. Everybody changes. When you criticize yourself, your changes are negative. When you approve of yourself, your changes are positive.

Forgive Yourself.
Let the past go. You did the best you could at the time with the understanding, awareness, and knowledge that you had. Now you are growing and changing, and you will live life differently.

Don’t Scare Yourself.
Stop terrorizing yourself with your thoughts. It's a dreadful way to live. Find a mental image that gives you pleasure, and immediately switch your scary thought to a pleasure thought.

Be Gentle and Kind and Patient.
Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be patient with yourself as you learn the new ways of thinking. Treat yourself as you would someone you really loved.

Be Kind to Your Mind.
Self-hatred is only hating your own thoughts. Don't hate yourself for having the thoughts. Gently change your thoughts.

Praise Yourself.
Criticism breaks down the inner spirit. Praise builds it up. Praise yourself as much as you can. Tell yourself how well you are doing with every little thing.

Support Yourself.
Find ways to support yourself. Reach out to friends and allow them to help you. It is being strong to ask for help when you need it.

Be Loving to Your Negatives.
Acknowledge that you created them to fulfill a need. Now you are finding new, positive ways to fulfill those needs. So lovingly release the old negative patterns.

Take Care of Your Body.
Learn about nutrition. What kind of fuel does your body need in order to have optimum energy and vitality? Learn about exercise. What kind of exercise do you enjoy? Cherish and revere the temple you live in.

Do Mirror Work.
Look into your eyes often. Express this growing sense of love you have for yourself. Forgive yourself while looking into the mirror. Talk to your parents while looking into the mirror. Forgive them, too. At least once a day, say, "I love you, I really love you!"

Love Yourself . . . Do It Now.
Don't wait until you get well, or lose the weight, or get the new job, or find the new relationship. Begin now—and do the best you can.'

Question
I have experienced huge upheaval in my life this past year after caring for an unwell partner who has now left and moved back in with his family... the relationship is now over and I feel completely saddened and am unsure what or how to move forward. There is turmoil financially and emotionally but I feel I’m standing at a crossroad and feel something (spirit) is trying to guide me but somethings “wrong”... also lots of my other relationships are changing and I’m not sure why? I feel lost, alone and a bit sad? Please help Tracy

Answer
Firstly, I want you to acknowledge was a strong, wise and wonderful person that you are. I sense a beautiful woman who is very loving and non judging around you in Spirit, she brings through a candle that is lit and says that she has been guiding you and will show you the way through. At present she says you are in recovery/healing mode and to be patient with yourself.  You are changing from the inside out. You will have breakthrough and feel like your old self again, just keep self loving and know that all your needs will be met. I feel the woman is someone who has passed on your mothers side of the family and she may be connected to the name Lyn, or something that sounds like that. Sending you much love and healing.

Question
 Do you see me continuing to struggle financially and continue to work in my current field?
Anonymous

Answer
I sense a lovely kind gentleman in Spirit around you, like a father figure. He shows me eagles flying and says to try to see the bigger picture. I feel he is suggesting that there is another way to create more financial abundance and do what gives you joy. It may start as a small thing that grows into something substantial. Now is a time for reflection and prayers to Spirit to give you clear messages. I feel you have more power than you realize and the universe will take a thousand steps towards you once you take one.  I feel 2019 will be a time of positive change around work and money.

How to Hear the Wisdom in our Heart


Recently my family and I found ourselves in a tight financial corner. My husband's work ended suddenly and we were not prepared. 
At the 11th hour as we were just about to click 'submit' on our Centrelink (government assistance financial hardship) application, we were literally saved by the bell, the ping sound that many of us now know as a text message arriving. My husband had been offered a new job. The next day we received our tax return and all was well in the world of survival once more.

The interesting thing was, the day before, in good old universe, timely energy,  I received an email explaining a practical process of how get the answers we need from our heart. 

It was an excerpt from a book called Human by Design by Gregg Braden

https://www.amazon.com.au/Human-Design-Evolution-Chance-Transformation-ebook/dp/B0746SG5GR

I followed the instructions, (that I am sharing with you below) and I asked the question 'What is the outcome of this financial stress?'  I visually was shown a golden sky that emanated abundance.  I saw a huge funnel and the golden energy of the sky poured into the funnel and down on to the earth. Simultaneously, I downloaded the knowing that financial abundance was on its way and all would be well. 

Although at the time it was hard to believe, within 24 hours, abundance did indeed arrive. 

So below is the process if you feel to give it a go. I am a big believer that we have all the wisdom we need within.  

Interestingly, this process included elements of research from the Institute of HeartMath 

Since 1991, the HeartMath Institute has researched and developed reliable, scientifically based tools to help people bridge the connection between their hearts and minds, and deepen their connection with the hearts of others.https://www.heartmath.org/

Below is the technique I used and I encourage you to try it, you may be surprised.

Happy heart exploring. Have a great October!

Asking Your Heart a Question
excerpt from the book, Human by Design by Gregg Braden


The heart is the key to awakening deep intuition, subtle memories, and extraordinary abilities, and to embracing these attributes as a normal part of everyday life.
I’d like to share a proven technique that allows you to access your heart’s wisdom.

The technique to create heart-brain coherence is appropriately called the Quick Coherence® Technique and has been refined by the Institute of HeartMath into the first three simple steps described below. 


Independently, each step sends a signal to the body that a specific shift has been put into motion. Combined, the steps create an experience that takes us back to a natural harmony that existed in our bodies earlier in life, before we began to disconnect our heart-brain network through our conditioning. Steps 4 and 5, where we access our heart’s wisdom, build upon the coherence created in Steps 1 through 3.



Five Steps to Ask Your Heart a Question

The steps to create quick coherence for accessing your heart’s intelligence are as follows.


  • Step 1: Create Heart Focus
    • Action: Allow your awareness to move from your mind to the area of your heart.
    • Result: This sends a signal to your heart that a shift has taken place: You are no longer engaged in the world around you and are now becoming aware of the world within you.
  • Step 2: Slow Your Breathing
    • Action: Begin to breathe a little more slowly than usual. Take approximately five to six seconds to inhale and use the same pace as you exhale.
    • Result: This simple step sends a second signal to your body that you are safe and in a place that supports your process. Deep, slow breathing has long been known to stimulate the relaxation response of the nervous system (aka the parasympathetic response).
  • Step 3: Feel a Rejuvenating Feeling
    • Action: To the best of your ability, feel a genuine sense of care, appreciation, gratitude, or compassion for anything or anyone. The key to success here is that your feeling be as sincere and heartfelt as possible.
    • Result: The quality of this feeling fine-tunes and optimizes the coherence between your heart and your brain. While everyone is capable of evoking a feeling for this step, it’s one of those processes that you may need to experiment with to find what works best for you.
With the successful completion of Step 3, the connection linking the heart and brain—and resulting in heart-brain coherence—has been established. While this is technically the completion of the Quick Coherence™ Technique itself, it’s also a beginning step in other processes. It’s from a state of heart-brain coherence that we may access our deep intuition and receive the guidance of our heart’s intelligence. Steps 4 and 5 below detail a procedure to do just that.
  • Step 4: Ask Your Heart a Question
    • Action: The previous three steps create the harmony between your brain and your heart that enables you to tap into your heart’s intelligence. As you continue to breathe and hold the focus in your heart, it is time to ask your question. Heart intelligence generally works best when the questions are brief and to the point. Remember, your heart doesn’t need a preface or the history of a situation before the question. Ask your question silently, as a single concise sentence, and then allow your heart to respond in a way that works for you.
    • Result: Your intuition opens up and you begin a dialogue.
The key to being successful at dialoguing with your heart is this: If you are empowered enough to have the experience, then you are empowered to know for yourself what your experience means.

While I don’t want to influence your questioning process, an example is sometimes helpful. A mysterious dream is the perfect opportunity to apply heart wisdom to a real-world situation. From the heart-brain coherence established in the previous three steps, simply ask the following kind of questions, filling in the blank with the names of the people, symbols, or identities of what you’re asking about. These are example formats only. You can choose one that fits for you or create your own using one of the following as a template.
  • “From the place of my heart’s deepest knowing, I ask to be shown the significance of ________________ in my dream.”
  • “From the single eye of my heart that knows only my truth, I ask for the meaning of the ________________ that I saw in my dream.”
  • “Please help me to understand the significance of ________________ in my life.”
  • Step 5: Listen for an Answer
    • Action: Become aware of how your body feels immediately as you are asking your question in Step 4. Make a note of any sensations—such as warmth, tingling, or ringing of the ears—and emotions that may arise. For people who are already attuned to their bodies and their hearts’ intelligence, this step is the easiest part of the process. For those who may have had less experience in listening to their bodies, this is an exercise in awareness.
    • Result: Everyone learns and experiences uniquely. There is no correct or incorrect way of receiving your heart’s wisdom. The key here is to know what works best for you.
I tend to receive my heart’s wisdom as words, while at the same time feeling sensations of warmth in my body. Other people never hear words but experience nonverbal forms of communication only, such as warmth radiating from their hearts or in their guts. Sometimes people feel a wave of peace wash over them as they receive the answer to their question. Remember, you and your body are unique partners in the world. What’s important here is to listen to your own body to learn how it communicates with you and give it the opportunity to be heard.

Question
I have a job interview and would like to know if this will come to fruition?
 Punita

Answer
Hi Punita, 
I sense a strong gentleman around you in Spirit who has passed on, he was a tall man with broad shoulders. He has father energy. He said he will be with you guiding you. He reminds me of the saying, 'people will not always remember what you said, but how you made them feel.'
Who ever is conducting the interview will be using their intuitive radar. He suggests you go to the interview relaxed, confident and happy in yourself and they will feel it. I do not like to predict outcomes because I believe there is always room for last minute changes in our destiny, due to many things we do not understand.  Either way, the energy around this interview is opening up a new beginning in your career path and I feel much encouragement from Spirit to step into your power. 

Question
I would like to know if the man in my life is the one?
Mandy Lou

Answer
Hi Mandy Lou, 
I like to believe that everyone who crosses our path is there for a reason, that the universe sets up divine appointments all the time. When I ask Spirit about this man, I get a lovely female Spirit Guide around you who presents herself as a nun. She emanates total unconditional love.  She said this person has reminded you of your own beauty and has unlocked something that is reminding you about self love. Keep working on self love and eventually I see you in a happy relationship although I am unsure if it is him or not, all I can tell you is that you deserve the best and the one I pick up on will be there for you 100 percent. I feel the man you end up is a bit of a country lad, or likes the outdoors, possibly horses. I am also reminded of the saying, if you love something, let it go, if it yours it will come back to.

Question
Is my Dad at peace?
Jolanda

Answer 
Hi Yolanda, 
As I tune in I see a gentleman laying down looking peacefully asleep, I sense he is a father energy and I am not sure why, but he holds up 2 fingers, perhaps indicating how long he has been there, I am not sure. He shows me purple flowers around him and tells me he loves the scent of where he is. Heaven smells beautiful he says. He says not to worry about him, he is with good people and happy. He is also with another gentleman from his generation, possibly a brother, or someone he was close to. He wishes you and your family well and says how proud of you he is, he said you are strong and beautiful, like a sunflower. 


Question
What lesson am I learning now and is it time to let go?
Ms B

Answer 
Hi Ms B, 
I see lots of little flower fairies around you trying to make you laugh and smile.  They say that you carry a lot on your shoulders and that you are searching for inner peace, for acceptance of what is and what is not.  Letting go of outcomes sometimes helps to strengthen our trust in our deeper wisdom and Great Spirit.  This is what I feel you are now learning, it is a spiritual maturity evolving.  Give yourself a break and hand over the reins of your life to what is meant to be, it is safe to do so, even if only for a day! You are very loved and all will work out exactly as it is meant to.

Question
Am I going to find a caring man to share my life with?
Ms W

Answer
Hi Ms W, 
I feel a mother energy around you in Spirit who brings you bright yellow daisies and much love. She says you have a heart of gold and want nothing more than to share your love.  She shows me you writing down every single detail you want to attract in a partner and putting it somewhere where you will see it often. Read it and add affirmations like 'I attract my soul mate now'  and 'I deserve love'  This will clear the energy you are putting out, I feel that although you want a special someone, there is some sort of mixed message you are putting out energetically. A little bit of work on yourself will see positive results.  I do see you eventually with a gentleman who feels very kind and likes to travel with you to interesting places. All the best to you!

Love Letters

I recently heard a wonderful, true story about love letters and wanted to share it with you.

A Spanish woman, whom I will call Carla, wanted a divorce.  Carla was not happy in her marriage and longed for romance and intimacy that her husband could not, or did not want to, share with her.

Carla asked her husband for a divorce but he strongly refused. He told her if she attempted to begin divorce proceedings, he would make it very difficult for her.

Not wanting to force the issue, Carla decided to be patient and bide her time, hoping that eventually he would change his mind and set her free.

She contemplated how else she could allow the romance she craved into her life.  Carla was not seeking an affair, she wanted real, committed, beautiful romance.  An idea came to her to begin to write love letters to herself.

Carla imagined the sort of loving attention she desired.  She imagined what she would like to hear from her lover if it was a real romance.  Something like below. (not a true transcript)

Dear Carla, I long for your touch, for your love, for your heart to merge with mine. The way you brush your hair from your shoulders sends electric shocks up my spine, your rhythmic voice is music to my ears.  etc etc  She signed it with the same fictional name each time.


Carla began to write more and more letters as it gave her much satisfaction and left each one in a drawer she thought was somewhere her husband would never find them.


One day she arrived home and her husband was waiting for her with her precious love letters in his hand. She felt her heart sink and anticipated the onslaught of his anger.  Carla was totally surprised when he simply said  "I cannot compete with this! I will give you a divorce."

Carla was so happy and eventually met a wonderful, romantically inclined man and re married.

The moral of the story is, if we want love, we don't have to wait, we can draw it in by focusing on what we desire.  When we focus on what we don't have, we create more of what we don't have.  I will leave you with two questions to contemplate.

What is it in your life that you want, but keep focusing on not having ? 

What is one thing you could do to bring the energy of this into your life in a positive way?

I have faith in your inner wisdom, I hope you do too!


Have a great September!

Question
Will I be changing employer this year?
Jolander

Answer
When I tune in I get a sense of a tall angel around you. I feel it is Archangel Gabriel who brings a message of self expression and creativity.  I feel you have outgrown the current job you are in, just like clothes that don't fit you anymore. I sense that Spirit wants to see you in a job that allows more room for you to move and express who you truly are. Be alert and aware of opportunities as I feel the job that is right for you is coming in around you within a matter of months.  Spirit commends you on being so tuned in and trusting your intuitive guidance.




Question
Does Spirit have any messages for me?
Miss H 

Answer 
I sense you have several people around you in Spirit and one lovely older lady brings in red roses and asks that you do not give up on love.  She says the more you love yourself, the more others will love you. I see you on the beach looking happy and free and there is good news coming in around you regarding increased income.  You are very loved!


Question
Am I on the right track of finding my life partner? I am using non attachment and allowing.
Miss J

Answer 
I sense you have been through a lot in your life and have gained much wisdom. I get a flash of you incubating this future relationship for the perfect timing. Its like on some higher self level you have already manifested it and it just has to come into the physical. Keep doing what you are doing, it will be worth the wait!  


Question
Will things work out for my partner and I so I can be a bigger part of his and his kids lives?
Miss M


Answer 
I feel a grandmotherly energy coming in around you from Spirit who loves you very much, she may be grandmother or great grandmother and is connected to the name Mary, or a similar name. She knows you have been learning patience through this relationship and advises to wait and see. I feel like forcing issues doesn't get you anywhere, better to stay on the outside looking in for now if you get my meaning.  I feel this is a gradual process and that it is already happening, just very slowly. Its all good, enjoy where the relationship is now, as it is all part of the journey.


Question
I am feeling a bit adrift and wonder if Spirit can offer me any guidance to find my purpose and help me find out why?
Miss C

Answer 
I feel a mother figure around you in Spirit who brings through lovely violet flowers and a sense of unconditional love.  She is trying to comfort you and soothe you at night time particularly.  She said if only you knew how beautiful you were or could see yourself through her eyes you would feel happier. I think this woman is connected to a Margaret. Do what brings you joy and listen to your inner whispers and intuition as you are more wise than you know. Your energy is one of a natural healer and Spirit encourages any study or expansion around the healing arts. You have much love to give.  The next few years I sense you will find your niche.

Question
My cat has to have an eye removed this week and I was wanting any guidance from Spirit that may be helpful.
Zoya


Answer
I get a father figure around you in Spirit who sends you much love. He calls the cat 'kitty' and says what a delightful pussy cat it is. I sense the end result of the operation gives the kitty relief and that she will adjust very well.  He is honouring your love and care you give to your lovely cat.  Your healing energy goes a long way. There is another pussy cat in Spirit, a black one helping you and  puss through this. All will be well.

Grace versus Action


 

Greetings Blog Readers!


I am grateful you are here! This month I had a great question from Josie which I feel to base this months blog around. Here is the question...

'I recently gave myself a reading using your beautiful book, Gifts of Guidance Fifty Messages,  Message number 8: 'Grace' delivered by Great Spirit where the lesson is Believe in Miracles. 
I know what my wish is but it seems impossible and may not be the path I am being called on.

 My question is, am I to make my wish regardless or simply be open to receive what Spirit has in store? If Spirit is urging me to just have faith and be open, what is the nature of these gifts that await me, I wonder?'  Josie

I think this is something we have all pondered at times. How much of our lives is 'meant to be' and how much control do we have using our own power of choice. 

My take on it is, it is a type of co creation.  We all have a blueprint, a soul contract that was made before we were born.  I see our contract as a type of outline, like an author outlines a book, there is a basic plan but a lot of room for creativity.  

Certain fateful events occur for bigger reasons that our limited minds can now not comprehend but I have no doubt made perfect sense at the time of making them. 

Then we were also given some room to play, to create, to choose so that we could grow and evolve.
Photo by Lesa Corrine https://photographybycorrine.zenfolio.com/

When we have a desire or a wish like Josie mentions, if it feels strong, urgent or alive, I believe this is our inner guidance system activating and wants to be noticed. Although Josie mentions it seems impossible, maybe it isn't. If I was Josie, I would really acknowledge and explore that desire and ask what is one thing I could do to begin to make this a reality? Choose an action that is just outside your comfort zone, that makes it doable.

When we become clear about our desires, the universe hears and automatically responds to support us. When we give our power away to the universe and say, you decide universe, what will be will be, part of the equation is missing, that part is you!

We are more powerful than we realize. We are in fact a spark of intelligent, divine, all knowing, all loving light that inhabits a body. This is the part of us that will leave the body when it expires, this is the part of us that existed before we inhabited the body. This is the part of us that knows no limits and can co create amazing manifestations with the universe.

So I encourage you Josie, and anyone else interested, get clear about your desires. Think,write, visualize and affirm your desired outcomes. Have faith in yourself, knowing you are a capable and wonderful manifestor with the support of Spirit at your finger tips. You can be the director of your movie, of your life! You have the power and like a loving parent, Spirit will support you and step in when needed. If the universe decides to grant you a special boon, or something even better than you could imagine, how wonderful! Let the fun begin.


Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at info@lizwintermedium.com I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month.

Question
I seemed stuck with decisions regarding my new work ventures. Not sure what to do?
Miss C

Answer 
My first impression is a gentleman around you in Spirit who feels like a father figure energy, he holds out a pair of scales and says it is all about finding balance in your life. He suggests you make choices that allow you good work/lifestyle balance. He also suggests that you take the path least traveled, it will be a great learning curve and bring excitement and joy.

Question
I am completing a two month European holiday then heading back to Melbourne. It’s been very regenerative. My question is in relation to what comes next for me? Punita

Answer 
I sense a wonderful energy coming in around you and I feel like it is a time of freshness and new beginnings. I see you around gardens or greenery, not sure if that is relevant. I feel your loved ones in Spirit want you to do whatever brings you joy.  You may choose to be involved in a helping situation on a community level, it may be volunteer work. I feel this would be personally rewarding and that you would meet like minded people. There is more travel ahead in the not too far future also but more so interstate. Enjoy, you have the world at your feet!


Question
Where and when will I find love ? I am old and lonely Andrea

Answer 
I sense angels around you and they say that your next love is going to be very different to your past relationships. It could be someone younger than yourself or perhaps someone with a youthful spirit. I feel like they will bring out the best in you. They say to be patient a bit longer but know it is written in the stars and they will appear at the perfect moment. I sense it is months, rather than years.

Question
I am having a tough time at my new job. My boss is a real tyrant. I have been applying for other roles with no luck, are you able to tell me if I 'm on the right path?
Emma 

Answer
I sense the burden you are carrying and understand it is difficult right now. I am being shown you in a type of managerial position. I feel a fatherly gentleman in Spirit telling you to not give up hope and take the wisdom you have gained from this job and know you will be moving on very soon. So yes, you are on the right path. There is a reason that this 'tyrant' came into your life, even if you don't know why at this point, it may be a lesson in patience or surrender, who knows, but it may make more sense later on.  Often once we learn the lesson, things change.  Also, remember to focus on what you want as focusing on what we don't want attracts more of it. Perhaps make a job wish list to get clarity.  Don't give up, keep applying, you will score a goal very soon!! 

Question 
The question I have is about my elderly parents who we are now having to put them in a rest home for their own health and well being. It's the hardest decision we've had to make as a family and the hardest conversation to have with them. Will they settle in okay? Miss A 

Answer
I sense there is a lovely maternal lady in Spirit around your parents soothing and comforting them. I feel their fears and concerns will dissipate once they settle in. I am getting a period of  weeks from now and I sense their relief and a lighter energy around them.  It seems that you and your family have chosen the right home for them. It seems like it is in a pretty location or has a nice nature aspect. I see blue birds around them which I feel is a lovely omen. Change is always scary on some level, but this feels right for everyone.

The Robber and the Saint

Somewhere I read that its good for the soul to go outside our comfort zone at least once a week.  I retained that thought and it sat in the forefront of my mind. So, as I was driving down the country road from town back home, I picked up a homeless guy hitch hiking.

This was definitely outside my comfort zone. I usually have a rule that I only pick up female hitchhikers, particularly when travelling alone. However, I had observed this local guy around town the last few years and knew that the word on the street was that he was harmless.

As he climbed in the car the song 'I can see clearly now the rain has gone' was playing on the radio. He immediately began to sing along and snap his fingers before he went into a conversation for the next ten minutes that made no sense at all. He certainly had an odour that told me he had not showered for awhile. As he chatted away I realized I could choose to judge this guy and worry about the car's upholstery or I could accept that he has the same light within him as I do and is walking his own path.  At the end of the day we are no different.

 As we arrived at his destination, he expressed a sincere thank you as he went on his way. Part of me felt empowered that I lived outside my own square, even for ten minutes.

It reminded me of a true story I heard.  A guy, who was very spiritually aware, was home alone one night in his New York Apartment. He heard some noises in the other room and upon inspection, realized that an intruder was trying to break in. The intruder began to run away but the home owner instinctively yelled out to the intruder, 'come back, I want to talk to you'

Some time later, the pair had shared a coffee and a heart to heart conversation. The intruder had just experienced a relationship breakdown and a job loss and was acting out of grief and momentary madness. The guy gave him a listening ear, encouragement, and $20 as he left.


What could have ended up a potential crisis had been diverted into a humanly kind interaction due to the man's good heart and willingness to go outside his comfort zone.

 I am not suggesting we place ourselves in dangerous situations but as outdated structures crumble around us, kindness is really like gold.

Have a great July!

Question
My brother in law passed away in February and we are all still struggling, is he okay and is there any messages? Jane

Answer
As I tune in I am greeted by a lovely man who brings through such a calm and grace. I feel like he passed over gracefully and was greeted with so much love and perhaps a dog he loved who has passed before him. He is working hard to help his loved ones here on earth, in any way he can. He sends so much love to family and friends and says that you are a spectacular person, (he was specific about using the word spectacular) with so much to share. He shows me orange and red roses and a book of some significance that his wife may be reading. Have faith he says, I am not gone, just transformed. He shows me a photo inside someones wallet. Perhaps he wore a uniform at some stage. Keep talking to him, he is listening.

Question
My lovely Dad (Terry) passed very suddenly of a heart attack on 12 May this year, just one month after his 70th birthday. I am heartbroken and shattered. I never knew anything could hurt this much.
Is he still around me? Is he okay? And does he have anything to tell me? 

Belinda

Answer
There is such a feeling of compassion and comfort coming in around you from Spirit and I sense your Dad is with a strong lady in Spirit, possibly his mother. She may have had a faith in God or was religious. Your Dad is a lovely soul who had a great sense of humour. He is around a lot and he is laughing about someone lighting a candle for him and he is blowing it out. Its early days and he is trying hard to let you know he is around but its hard for him to breakthrough the grief energy. Be kind to yourself, you deserve the best he says. He will be contacting you via your dreams or perhaps he has already. Someone is wearing an armband for him or has a tattoo on their arm representing him or is thinking about doing so. Think and talk to him, he can hear you.

Belinda's Feedback
  Thank you Liz!! OMG, that was spot on, the reading you did for me. My Grandmother was a parishioner in a church. My Father has got a great sense of humour (he was well known for it!!). I light a candle for him every morning & I am thinking of getting a portrait tattoo on my arm (a picture of him & I together)!!

Question
I am dating a nice man but feel a wall between us that I would like to remove. This is frustrating me. Does Spirit have any guidance?
Ely

Answer 
There is a lovely elderly man in Spirit who comes through to help you Ely. He was a kind and wise man connected to your father and he brings a strong message of patience and reassurance.  This wall you speak of will eventually dissolve but it will take some more time. You have both been disappointed and hurt in the past so you both have your own walls up in different ways. However, by focusing on what does work between you rather than what isn't, I feel that these walls will eventually fade away. I feel like you both need to feel totally safe to express your more vulnerable sides. I hear the words 'you can't push the river' Let it unfold and rejoice in the wonderful connection you have found in this man.

Question 
Wondering how my future is looking financially and in my career.. where to go next? What to do? 
Christy
Answer
I sense there are angels around you that are excited for new beginnings and a new future although I get that the end of winter and beginning of Spring is your power time. I get that now is a time to relax and contemplate and soon new opportunities will present themselves. I sense overseas travel and new career options be offered. I feel like all your financial needs will be met and something about PR work. Success awaits.

Question
Am I on the right path or should I turn around ? Miss B
Answer 
This is a choice only you can make as we are here to exercise our own free will. However, I do get a gentle lady in Spirit who advises you to sit and be for the time being. I sense she is saying that now is not the time to make any radical decisions. I sense you are feeling pressure from others about what you should be doing and Spirit wants you to look deep within and ask yourself what is it that you want? Take time out to feel and be, you will be guided. A day on your own in nature could work wonders. Whatever you choose, keep your sense of self strong as you have a lot to do in this world in terms of helping others through your wisdom.

The Oracle of the Burning Tongue

My tongue was burning, for no apparent reason, I had not eaten or drank anything hot.

Good friend google tells me it can be burning tongue syndrome, common in menopause (oh yeah hello, another to add to the list)  and times of stress but really the medical industry apparently has no idea why it happens or any cure. To top it off it says it can last up to six or seven years, great !

I turn to an app on my phone,  'Heal Your Body' by Louise Hay. The App is based on Louise's book 'Heal Your Body' which provides a dictionary of body parts and health problems and related emotional/metaphysical imbalances.  http://appshopper.com/healthcare-fitness/heal-your-body-a-z-louise-l-hay

I look up Tongue Problems and my app tells me:

Probable Cause...represents the ability to taste the pleasure of life with joy

New Thought Pattern...I rejoice in all of my life's bountiful givingness

Mmmm..I thought I was doing okay.... but then I really thought about my current responsibilities in life and things that I do consistently worry about.

 I worry about my family, I worry about money, I worry about my age, I worry about the future, I worry about my dog, I worry about my sons and wonder how they will fare in life, I worry about my husband who works so hard,  I worry about my aging mother.  My goodness! Perhaps on a not so conscious level I am stressed and I am not tasting the pleasures of life as I could be.

After digesting this information, I slow down, I go within and meditate. I release all my concerns and consciously decide to give it over to the universe, great spirit, angels and guides. I start to feel a peace within, I know deep down, everything is working out in divine timing and I acknowledge that. I choose trust over fear and I feel a well of peace flow into my being. I feel grateful for what is, rather than focusing on what isn't.

I emerge after 20 minutes or so.....amazing, my tongue has stopped burning, perhaps it was stress related.  Thank goodness I didn't have to wait seven years!

I then thank the condition of the burning tongue as it bought me the awareness of what I needed to know.

Perhaps if I was more conscious of my own stress, there would not have been a need for a physical condition to prompt me.

I really believe that stress can manifest in our bodies in almost any part of it. However, there can be a message within the part it shows up in, therefore acting as an oracle.

Unfortunately, it has become normal to experience stress so we are not failures for feeling it. However, it is fortunate that we can acknowledge our stress and once awareness is gained, we can brainstorm intuitively how we can manage stress in ways that will work for us.

Over the years my go to stress management plan has been always having the Australian Bush Flower Essence handy, seven drops under the tongue calms me down immediately, http://ausflowers.com.au/Emergency-Essence-30-ml   meditation, listening to spiritual mentors speak, writing, walking and spending time in nature. Yoga works for me too, but I can get lazy with that.

If you can relate, I recommend
  • to firstly acknowledge where you feel stress in your life to bring light and awareness into the mix
  • research options and tools for healing stress
  • experiment with what works for you, we are all unique
  • create 'a go to plan' so that when you become consciously aware that you are stressed, you have somewhere to go to and something to do.
Life is short and we deserve to experience optimum joy wherever possible. When we choose joy, our vibration is automatically heightened helping to attract positive outcomes in the physical. Sound simplistic I know, but I truly believe simple is good, simple is true.

Have a wonderful June!

Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at info@lizwintermedium.com I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month.

Question
I have some detailed plans coming into fruition soon and I'm really excited. There is one very key person who has not committed either way yet, and I understand completely the internal struggle around this.
However, I keep getting very strong signs, nearly every day, that this person will be involved as initially planned.
Am I just being too hopeful or is Spirit really trying to reassure me?
Justin
Answer 
I totally relate to you wondering if you are being hopeful or is it Spirit reassuring you. I understand that its hard to be objective about things we are excited about.  I believe signs from Spirit leave you with a deep gut feeling and I encourage you to trust your intuition.  
Its a difficult thing for any clairvoyant or medium to predict what someone will choose, as free will is something that belongs only to the individual, and Spirit is not allowed to interfere.  So, to be honest, I cannot answer what will happen or what this person will decide.
However, I do sense that they have some reservations. If they can find peace with their internal struggles it could work well. There feels like there is a risk element and this is partly why they may be unsure. I feel like Spirit is trying to let you know they have your back whatever the outcome as I feel you are indeed on an exciting path that will lead you to great things!


Question
Are my family around me? Are they guiding me? Have they anything reassuring for me?
Dave 

Answer
As you know Dave, I am aware that many of your family members have passed on and I am pleased to let you know they have not lost their sense of humour and send you much love and laughter. They are very fond of you and your partner and they want nothing more for you both then abundance joy and happiness. They are showing me you going away to the bush and encourage getting away from everyday pressures.  I feel your mother around you saying that she is aware of pregnancies or births in the family, not sure if she means recent or coming up soon.  There is something about study for your partner? I sense the next few years will see some practical changes that you seem very happy about. I see you moving from where you are currently living in the next few years and settling somewhere with a lovely nature aspect. Mum says to look out for owls, she will be sending you a sign of one, letting you know she is around. (could be photos, films, songs or real owls) She also showed me the old fashioned record player, not sure why. Sing dance and be merry is the collective message from your loved ones in Spirit.

A Message from a Mountain Spirit



Photo from cnn.com

For this months blog, I was guided to post a message from my book 'Gifts of Guidance Fifty Messages'

I held the book to my heart and put out the intention for the perfect message for this month to appear. I feel that if you are reading this, this message is for you.


Message 18
Manifesting
Messenger
Mountain Spirit
‘The most valuable skill or talent that you could ever develop
 is that of directing your thoughts to what you want’   Abraham-Hicks


Vision
A glorious mountain covered with wild blooms in the springtime, a face embedded in the mountain.

Message
This is a message of reassurance that the energy and hard work you have been giving out will soon be rewarded. The light at the end of the tunnel may yet be elusive but only temporarily.
The Spirit of the Mountain energy is solid and supportive and reassures you that you have wonderful powers of manifestation.  Clarity of thought marrying practical action is the key and soon your needs will be met in solid and practical ways. Keep striving for improvement in areas of life that are meaningful to you. Create practical structures in your life that support you, your lifestyle and your loved ones.
The flowers blooming on the mountain in the springtime represent positive outcomes and reaping rewards. The seeds you have sown in the past and continue to sow will blossom and grow.
Keep doing whatever it is you are doing. Trust that there is a bigger plan at work that may manifest in an even better way than you previously thought. Dismiss any fears and doubts troubling you, own your power and keep moving forward.
If you have asked a specific question today, the answer is to have faith in yourself and know your needs are about to be met.
Whether you are conscious of it or not, you are currently creating strong foundations for the future which will have a positive ripple effect on others.

Lesson

Your soul is experimenting with outcomes of actions.

Power Choice
·     Use manifestation techniques to boost desired outcomes
·     Create a vision board, use affirmations
·     Breathe your desired reality into the now
·     Use positive affirmations
·     Study mentors or employ a life coach.

                          



Momentary Meditation
Imagine you are on a beach at sunrise, visualise what you want to manifest in the sky above, see it, feel it, sense it, say the words, ‘it is done, it is so’.

Affirmation
I create a joyful and meaningful life every day.

Liz’s Comments
It is said that everything happens for a reason and to some extent I believe that is true. Yet hard work and effort does bring rewards and we have more power to manifest than any of us realise. We are only scratching the surface of our own infinite, innate power.
When we feel inspired to take action, it is often Spirit guiding us.  It seems we are on an ongoing journey learning to listen to the subtle voices of our soul. We co-create our life with the Universe much like an artist’s paintbrush brings life to a canvas.
This message is acknowledging the hard work you have been doing and is praising you for your efforts. There is more to reap that you may not yet be aware of.
When my husband and I were awaiting approval for a home loan to buy our house, we were on edge. We had done all the right things, worked hard, saved up the money for the deposit and employed a broker. I had created an altar with a green candle for abundance and a photo of the house we wanted to buy. I would stop and say prayers at the altar regularly hoping this would help to manifest our desired outcome.
Finally, we received word from the broker. The bank agreed to grant the loan on the condition that we came up with another $10,000! There was no way we could find that sort of money and our hearts sank. We had tried so hard.
The next day I met for coffee with an old friend and shared what had happened. Unknown to me, my friend had recently come into some money and offered to help us. It was so random and unexpected! 
It felt as though universal synchronicity was at work and we accepted her kind offer and the house was ours. Obviously I was also blessed to have such a kind-hearted friend. 
My point is, the saying ‘God helps those who help themselves’ is quite true.
Whatever is happening in your life, wherever you have been giving of yourself and your energy, you are about to reap the rewards, so rejoice!

Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at info@lizwintermedium.com I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month.

Question
Can you see a good move this year to another state where things will go much better for me?
David
Answer
I am shown a visual of you moving interstate with a small bag, north, I think. I feel the symbol of the small bag is that you go with a light heart and leave the past behind where it belongs. Fresh starts and new beginnings ring true. Follow your heart and your passion. I see you around many creative people.
Question
  Please ask Spirit if we will be moving to the Byron area and can they help with a time frame. Deborah
Answer 
It is your decision whether you make this move but I sense in your heart this is what you will manifest. There are angels around you guiding you and setting up synchronicistic  leads and guidance. I just keep hearing one year, but not sure if that means within the year or a year from now. You have the power to manifest this change and Spirit will support you.
Question  
I would like to know what Spirit says about the 30 year connection S and I have, and what will happen over the next few months.
We had such amazing plans and I really felt like our Guides were, well, guiding us to this time in our lives.Now I don't know what to think
Anonymous

Answer
I get a lovely lady in Spirit who has passed on who often is looking out for you. She feels like she is connected on your mothers side of the family and is very protective. She understands the strong connection but she said everything happens in perfect timing and on some level S is not ready for the plans that were made. If you love something let it go, if its meant to be it will be. I feel more clarity and answers emerge naturally soon.
Question
How can I improve my health?
Maddie

Answer
Photo by www.suwalls.com
I am being shown fields of flowers of daisies and I know daisies represent simplifying. Perhaps Spirits message is suggesting  to simplify your life and remove areas of pressure or stress. Placing photos of daisies on your screen savers, or real daisies around you can draw in supportive energy. I also am shown a bottle of Vitamin C. Laugh, play and be merry !   

Question
 I was just hoping to connect with my dad who passed away a couple of years ago. I kind of feel no closure just miss him so much and want to know he’s okay? Natasha
Answer
Your Dad comes through with an Aunt, maybe your aunt or his, not sure but he feels like he went a bit premature and has been doing a lot of healing on himself since he passed. He is in a good space and sends you so much love, he knows you do not judge him and he is proud of you and grateful for that. His words to you are enjoy your life and don't be concerned with the small stuff. I also see a small dog at his feet.  
Question 
Will my wife and I work things out and save our marriage?
Andrew 
Answer 
I sense a kind gentleman around you in Spirit who has been looking over you and giving you much love and support. He says to think positive about your future but make decisions that you feel will serve you best. This is not a selfish way to be, this is a healthy way to be. I feel your friendship lasts the distance regardless of the outcome of the marriage. This man advises to focus on what is working, such as the friendship, not on what is not working.  Of course, nothing is set in stone with relationships as it is up to the two people's free will.  If you love someone, let them go and if it is meant to be it will be.

Question 
How do I handle my husband, I suspect him of infidelity.
Miss A  

Answer 
I sense that although there is much unrest within the relationship, on some higher self level, you are both choosing to remain together as whatever lessons you are learning from each other is not yet complete. I actually sense deep down there is a lot of love sitting dormant at the foundation of the relationship. I would pray and ask for guidance from all of those who love you in Spirit and whatever outcome you both decide, do know that you will be looked after. I am not told if infidelity is part of the dynamics within the relationship but sometimes Spirit does not impart the information we would like them to. I would focus more on activating the dormant love and then the communication will flow and you will be able to share truth and authenticity. I wish you well in your marriage and life journey.
