As a Medium, I spend a lot of time with Spirits. It warms my heart reconnecting families with their loved ones who have crossed over. The way I receive messages from Spirit come to me in many different way:
But on rare occasions, I am surprised to receive information in different ways. Today was one of those days!
Going back in time to December 2016, one of my dear friends Deb and her husband, Phil, had just bought their dream home. It is a big, beautiful home built in the nineteen hundreds, with lots of bedrooms for family (especially the grandchildren) to spend the night. Built on a large piece of land where their families gathered for celebrations and fun.
As a house warming gift, I offered to do a house clearing and bless their new home. Both Deb and Phil had mentioned they felt someone’s “energy “or a “presence” in their home. I knew a house clearing would be a great house warming gift.
The day I went over for the house clearing I brought my husband Scott to give Phil someone to hang out with while Deb and I did the clearing. When Scott and I pulled into their driveway, I saw and older women in one of the windows (you guessed it - Spirit). I could feel the energy already starting to build. When we entered the house, I was greeted by a voice telling me her name was Mary, and that she was a “Earth Keeper.” Earth Keepers are Spirits or Ghosts who choose to stay earthbound as part of their purpose to protect people and the lands. As Deb and I walked from room-to-room with our various tools for this clearing, we could feel a warm, soft, motherly presence. Deb and I talked about Mary and we decided to ask her to stay. Knowing that she was there to guide and protect anyone on this land, and in their home. After our house clearing was complete, all four of us toasted to their new home with a glass on wine.
Fast forward nine months later (September). I had a dream where the Spirit of Mary came to me and showed me an old cemetery behind my friend Deb’s house. In the dream Mary held my hand and walked me outside behind Deb’s house to a cemetery. She told me to walk forward seven headstones, take a left and walk twelve headstones. Upon waking from this dream, I called Deb to share this story. She told me in fact there was a cemetery behind her home. Later that same day four of our friends gathered to investigate this cemetery. We all held hands and walked to the area Mary had showed me. We walked forward seven headstones, turned left and walked twelve headstones. At the twelfth headstone there was her name!
So you see, even the medium can be surprised. We receive messages from Spirits in so many ways. Mary was confirming to me who she was.
We are just closing the door on 2016, phew! In numerology 2016 was a “9” year . (2+0+1+6=9) In numerology the world turns in cycles of 9. The energies of 9 is all about spring cleaning, and clearing out of old energy. The completion of cycles is about releasing any thoughts, judgements, and people that no longer enhance our lives. Any emotional baggage you have been carrying during the previous 8 years must be dealt with and abandoned in preparation for the beginning of a #1 year. Allow yourself sometime to grieve if needed, and celebrate the lessons you have learned from this past year. Then close that door.
Bring it on 2017! 2017 in numerology is a “1” year. ( 2+0+1+7=10 which reduces to a 1, as the 0 is dropped). The energies of 1 are about new beginnings, planting new seeds, and opportunities for a fresh start. Ask yourself “ Who do I want to be?” You are in control of the events in your life, you should make the most of this new beginning. Celebrate the light of a new day, a new year. This is a great time to set intentions, make lists, design a vision board. All are powerful ways to invite in what each of us most desire in our lives.
Re-dream your path, allow and bring in the new energies. Re-balance and open yourself up to all the possibilities!
