Here I was, cresting the wave of this high I’ve been on lately.  Smooth sailing all the way, with nothing but the open seas before me.  When all of the sudden I run smack-dab into the wall that is my Comfort Zone.  Actually, I’m not much of a boating person; this is only a metaphor.  The wall?  That’s a metaphor, too.  My Comfort Zone, however, and me needing to be on the outside?  That’s all too real.
_How many of you have had a "paranormal experience"?

Perhaps you got cold chills and felt a presence in the room with you. Maybe you have seen shadows or flickering lights in your peripheral vision. Have you heard your name called only to find out no one else was home at the time? Some of you may even see outright visions or spirits. Add to that prophetic dreams, intuitions, gut feelings, astral travel, deja vu and you get the picture. Try not to worry because I have an explanation.

Tonight I was sitting here with my young son. Every so often a bit of wisdom comes from his mouth that makes me stop in my tracks. Out of the blue this evening Kynan said, “Daddy no matter where you go you are always connected to nature.” My ears perked up and I began my process of questions,” Why do you say that Kynan?” “Think about it Daddy, right here in this room, if you pick me up, I will be touching you and your feet will be touching the floor. The floor is touching the walls and the walls go down to the earth,” the little sage retorted.

Do you know what the top 3 energy drains are? If you knew, would you make different choices?

As we head into the upcoming holiday season and our dark, winter here in NE Ohio, we think about shielding ourselves from the cold, energy inefficiency and drafts. We insulate our homes, change our filters, order furnace maintenance and begin shopping and housekeeping for the busy season ahead. Are you scheduling self-care into this agenda to make sure that YOU are shielded and energetically insulated for this very busy time of the year? If you care about sustainable human energy, consider the following.

Conference calls, carpools, drive-thru dinners and text-messaged I love you’s make up the life many of us know today. We hurry to get from one destination to another while constantly juggling thoughts of tomorrow and beyond. I decided I was willing to explore simplicity and change my stress level.  Are you?

Are you tired of….from one day to the next….learning that something is good for you…..and something else is not? 

We need to eat more of this, drink more of that, take this additional supplement, eliminate that one…..

Because every day more and more research goes on that reveals new findings.  How many times a week ---not a month---not a year---but a WEEK…..do we hear “New study shows…..blah, blah, blah….Don’t drink coffee.  Drink more coffee!  Don’t eat chocolate.  Eat more chocolate; it’s good for the heart!

To the reader of this angel article concerning higher consciousness, I wish to convey the idea that angels do not have to be something external from humanity. Often, angels (messengers) can simply be a metaphor for higher thoughts traveling through the heavens of our mind . . . an elevated state of awareness. 

Lucy led me to animal communication when I had never heard of it and was at best very skeptical.  I called a woman I had heard about at work after exhausting all other options to deal with a health issue Lucy had.   This woman was an animal communicator.  I was only on the phone minutes when I knew she was talking to Lucy.  That conversation opened me up to a new depth of love for all of my animals.  That avenue led me to taking the communication class that opened my heart.  That was almost exactly 10 years ago.

I was reading the story Cinderella when my little daughter asked, "Mommy, why are Cinderella's step-sisters so mean?"

I paused.  Big time.

This was the first time we had talked about this subject and I wanted to give it a real answer.  But how do I explain this to five year old?
