The Serpent Rises


Snakes of Durban- a photographic guide – KwaZulu-Natal Amphibian & Reptile Conservation
As I sat down to write this months blog, I asked Spirit what would be most valuable to people to read in the here and now. 
The answer was to talk about change. Spirit is often devoid of detail when downloading messages.
For example, the other day I was about to mow the lawn. I heard a clear message in my head, 'Be careful' What could possibly happened I argued. Within a few minutes, I accidentally bumped a wasps nest with the mower and yes, I got a swift sting on the leg. 
As I rubbed in some Aloe Vera gel, which worked wonders, I thought to Spirit, okay, you told me so, but telling me to watch out for wasps nests would been more helpful than telling me to be careful. However, it was a valuable reminder to listen to my intuition. So often messages come in downloads of feelings and knowings. 
So when they asked me to talk about change, I thought I would consult the book I wrote in 2017, 'Gifts of Guidance, Fifty Messages'
The message that appeared was quite apt, which I have copied for you below. The messenger being the Serpent, which represents total transformation and the name of the message, Spiritual Shifts, are definitely happening in tandem with the external shifts many of us are now experiencing, for some of us, massively. 
It is a time to stay close to our heart, our intuition and natural guidance and to avoid make decisions based on what we think we should do or what others think we should do. A time to give ourselves credit that we are whole, complete intuitive beings, we are so much more than what we have been led to believe. Unwrap the gift that is you!
Below the message, you will see some of your questions answered.  
 


Message 32
Spiritual Shifts
Messenger
Serpent
Trust in your Inner Power and miracles will happen.’   Deshwal Sachin

Vision

Message
The Serpent brings the message that deep healing spiritual shifts are now occurring in a way that may be new to your conscious self. The hard work you have been doing on inner levels is now showing much like seeds sprouting through rocky soil. You have built strong and sturdy foundations and there is a new source of spiritual power that you can now tap into.
Externally in your life, some unexpected events may arise now, some of which are out of your control. Draw on your inner wisdom to handle these events rather than following impulsive or old ways of dealing with things. This is a new era in your life where you will approach life from a deeper stance with increased mindfulness and awareness.
The Serpent advises to remain observant at this time and keep a detached perspective. Allow the marriage of clarity and feeling to embrace you, making the way forward clear.
Celebrate your growth, you have arrived at an auspicious yet rewarding time in your life.

Lesson
Tapping into spiritual power.

Power Choice
·     Take time for reflection
·     Spend time near water or indulge in water-based therapies
·     Call on the energy of the Serpent for strength and clarity
·     Go deep in your meditations
·     Manifestation techniques activate with ease at this time.

Momentary Meditation
Breathing deeply, relaxing … visualise yourself on a seabed, the Serpent approaches and you peacefully unite with its energy.
The Serpent has a message for you, what is it? Accept whatever is the first thing that comes to mind, and give thanks to the Serpent.

Affirmation
It is safe to be in my spiritual power.

Liz’s Comments
Spiritual awakenings are often triggered by major life events but not always. It may be a chance encounter with an individual that has a profound effect on us or simply something we heard in conversation that ignites a realisation.
We are all powerful. We all possess a soul which is made from indestructible matter but often it is covered in debris from experiences we could not fully process. This message is to alert you to the fact that your soul is throwing aside the debris and is ready to reveal some of its infinite power.
You may have had many incarnations to arrive at this point and it is a time to be celebrated not feared. Accept that you can be a channel for divine energy and that it will affect your life positively, but inevitably will affect others as well. How they respond to your soul growth is their business, not yours. You are encouraged to remain true to yourself.
I have had several major spiritual awakenings in my life and hope to experience more. I can relate to this message and sense that it is bringing wonderful news of forward movement in a way that will ultimately delight and uplift you. Your task is to be alert, receptive and to acknowledge the truth in your epiphanies.

Question
Will I experience as profound and soulful a connection with my future partner as I did with my ex? It is almost difficult for me to imagine that, but I feel like I've been working so hard on my personal growth and this will inevitably attract the right person into my life. 
Josie

Answer
I sense an older man around you in Spirit that is looking out for you, like a father figure.  He says you are correct about having worked through a lot and are more ready now than ever for a new person to enter. He advises not to compare to the last one as although there will be an undeniable connection that is special, it will be quite different in many ways, so be open to what Spirit presents. There is nothing you need to do, just be ready to receive. 


Question
 Does Spirit have any messages about my spiritual work and direction?    

 Krissy

Answer
I sense several American Indian guides around you who ask you to do rituals to find answers. You know deep within yourself where you want to place your energy and they want to help that emerge to your awareness more so.  Trust what your heart says, what makes it light up? You can combine several passions together which is something you may already be contemplating, the next 12 months will see some huge steps forward. Remember to enjoy each moment as it unfolds and not be too focused on the outcome. 


Question
Does Spirit offer any guidance for dealing with difficult times and how I can best serve?
Miss L 

Answer
As I tune in I sense a loving father figure around you in Spirit who wants to give you a big hug. He is so proud of you and the person you are and says that the question you ask, you are already living. You are serving the best you can and coming from your heart. The best thing you can do is continue on the path you are on and keep serving yourself by honouring your needs for joy and relaxation so that you can be there for those who need you.

2019 Here we come, ready or not


Wow, what a roller coaster ride 2018 was! Yet, here we are, perhaps wiser, thinner, fatter, crazier or more sane, but we are here. I certainly feel fatter and wiser LOL!

Now newness, freshness and hope subliminally fill the air as another new year approaches.

If only we could get to the point that each day before us was like a new year. Each day an opportunity to clear the slate, to start fresh, to release any anger, guilt and suffering.

So I will keep my new year intention simple.....To begin each day with a fresh outlook, release the past and embrace the new.

I thought it must be time to check out what sort of influences we have to work with in 2019 so below is an extract, take taken from the website yearlyhoroscope.org.com  

Further below you will find some of your questions answered.  Thank you to all who support my work and this blog, may your year ahead be spectacular!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

2019 Planetary Influences & Astrological Events

  1. The year 2019 will start on January 6th with a major astral event: Uranus, the rebel planet, ends its retrograde motion in Aries. Uranus will remain in Aries until March 2019 when it returns in Taurus where it will be stationary until 2026, bringing forth new challenges.
  2. In 2019, Saturn, the planet of karma and responsibility, will fully manifest for the first time in 29 years, being home in Capricorn, the sign which it governs! On your side, this will involve dedicating more time and attention in building something important for yourself, with discipline and integrity. Saturn has been in Capricorn since the end of 2017 (Saturn also governs the Capricorn sign) and will remain there until December 2020.
  3. Pluto will be retrograde in Capricorn between April 24th and October 3rd. Pluto in transit through Capricorn, between 2008 and 2024, will influence the attitude towards material values and possessions, making us gain a new and effective way of managing the financial resources.
  4. Neptune will be retrograde in Pisces, between June 21st and November 27th of 2019. The influence of Neptune in transit through Pisces, between 2012 and 2026, will influence each of us in a different way, depending on the astrological sign under which we are born.
  5. Jupiter is retrograde in Sagittarius between April 10th and August 11th. The retrograde motion will particularly influence the Taurus and Capricorns signs.
Mercury will turn retrograde 3 times throughout 2019:
  • March 5 – March 28 (in Pisces)
  • July 8 (in Leo sign) – August 1 (in Cancer)
  • October 31 – November 20 (in Scorpio)
Each stage with Mercury in a retrograde position is a period of recalibration, of revising our actions and intentions from the past few months (since the last retrogradation period) and it helps us to perceive other life perspectives from that moment.

How the Moon and Sun Eclipses Influence the Zodiac Signs in 2019

From an astrological point of view, the Moon governs the domestic life, the house activities, the psyche, the emotions, the irrational, and the subconscious.
For this reason, the lunar eclipse will show its effects, especially at individual level.
Moon Eclipses in 2019:
  • January 20–21,  — Total Lunar Eclipse
  • July 16-17,  — Partial Lunar Eclipse
A Sun eclipse in the perfect time for making major changes, for going on a new path or for giving a try to what you’ve always wanted, but you lacked the courage or the proper context for doing.

The solar eclipses represent very strong New Months. They signify beginnings and endings.
Astrologically, the solar eclipses can announce a fall of power, entering a disgrace state and restoration of that power in a spectacular manner.
Sun Eclipses in 2019:
  • January 5–6 — Partial Solar Eclipse
  • July 2 — Total Solar Eclipse
November 11 – Mercury’s transit: This Mercury’s transit lasts around five and a half hours.
The last Transit was in May 2016 and the next one will be in May 2095.
December 26 — Annular Solar Eclipse
Each person is going to feel the effects of every eclipse at personal level.
For some people, the changes will be barely noticeable, while others will encounter life-changing event and in some cases, the effects will have no results.
In general, the eclipses force people to take decisions, to act, but change can be something beneficial.

Fire Zodiac Signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius)

The coming year is perfect for the fire zodiac signs, which will have enough time for their hobbies.
The social activities are on the first place and although some conflicts related to their passionate nature may occur, they will get solved quickly.
The horoscope for 2019 predicts the discovery of new hobbies, if you are born in a zodiac sign governed by fire.
While Leo and Sagittarius seem to go on an upward and full of success path, the Aries might face some difficulties.
The astrologer’s advice for this native is to slow down and to stop trying to do everything by himself.

Earth Zodiac Signs  (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn)

For the Earth zodiac signs, 2019 is going to be a successful year, especially professionally.
These zodiac signs are very good at what they are doing, but now they will encounter new opportunities and it is highly recommended to not miss them.
The favourite Earth zodiac sign of 2019 is Virgo, which seems to have some excellent flashes at work and, professionally, everything is going to go really great.

Air Zodiac Signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius)

The Earth zodiac signs are going to feel more comfortable in the circumstances of 2019.
For these zodiac signs, it means getting out of the comfort zone, and the occasions for that will be plenty.
Out of all Earth zodiac signs, the Libra seems to be the stars’ favourite, because in 2019, these natives are going to become more confident, acquiring some administrative abilities, an extremely useful thing for a zodiac sign that, in general, has difficulties when it comes to organizing.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces)

Finally, the sensibility of the Water zodiac signs will bring them success rather than suffering.
In 2019, the Water signs show an excellent empathy attitude. The instinct is the base of any success in 2019 for the Water signs.
March is especially lucky for Pisces, which could put the foundation of a business with this occasion.
The 2019 horoscope predicts a quieter year than 2018 for Scorpio, who is going to achieve emotional balance and stop taking impulsive decisions.
The conflicts will considerably diminish and harmony will get settled in their home if they put a bit of effort into it.

Question
 
Am I on the right path with my biz & being self employed, why hasn't it taken off yet, how do I dream/manifest bigger for my biz? 
Jacinta

Answer
Tuning in for you, I am greeted by several angels around you with so much encouragement to keep moving forward.  Your business is a great vehicle for personal self growth and learning and being challenged is shaping you into your more authentic self. Keep coming from the integrity you are already using and have faith that it will blossom and grow. There is also a gentleman in spirit around you, a fatherly energy who is helping to guide you. He says to be bold, stand strong and don't be afraid to speak up about what you do. I feel you will begin to market the business in new ways. Mid 2019 feels very good for your business.
 
Question
What changes do you see coming into my life in 2019?
Ruth 

Answer
I sense many people around you in Spirit and feel that they are proud of how you dealt with the challenges that 2018 presented.  You have grown as a person and are ready for new challenges. I see you traveling in 2019 and really enjoying yourself. They also give that personal relationships improve and perhaps new people that have a positive impact entering your life. Be open to the new is the message I get.
 
Question
 
My Husband and I are wondering whether it would be a good idea to have another baby or not (we have a son who is almost 7).
I’m nearly 40, so I am aware that if we do want another, we would have to have one fairly soon. Anyway, do you see us having another child or should I just forget the idea & focus on my 7 year old & my work? Any guidance you could please give me would be much appreciated.
Belinda

Answer 
I sense an elderly lady around you in Spirit who knew you when you were very young. She brings a settled feeling of peace and wisdom and suggests that you go with the flow and if it is meant to be it will be. Sometimes they don't answer our questions directly because the future is not always set in stone, we can shift things with free will.  I feel this is something only you and your husband can decide and Spirit is not allowed to interfere. However, they will support you whatever you choose.

Question
 
I've had a very difficult 20 months being separated by my husband's daughter and now divorced my husband who has been diagnosed with dementia. Unknown by me, she had obtained all his legal business.  He now lives in nursing home locked up way before needed. I would just like to know there is a light at the end of this tunnel, 2019 must be better. And one Granddaughter fighting life difficulties also.
Anonymous
 
Answer 
I sense a kind gentleman around you in Spirit who is trying hard to help and soothe.  He says some things we can control and others we can't. I feel it is exhausting for you worrying about the things you cannot change and he is encouraging you to put the past behind you and be open to the new.  I feel you have some great support around you in terms of friends or family and that you are very loved here, and from the Spirit World.  Also a mother figure presents her self, maybe Margaret or Marge, a name like that, she says you need to have some fun and urges you to look into some travel, perhaps a cruise.  Things have a way of working themselves out in the end. I also see you granddaughter getting through her dark night of the soul and going on to help others. All will be well.

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!
 


 
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
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.

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.
