“Owl Sign Appearing Over And Over … And Happening A Lot!”

Question
I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction to determine the meaning of the sign of an owl appearing over and over — and happening a lot! I read a little online that it could be a sign of death or a spiritual message. I haven’t seen any real owls, just pictures keep popping up on TV, books, ornaments, a toy eraser, kids homework, just to name a few.

Answer
“I usually tell people to google ‘animal totem owl’ or any other animal which keeps popping up. You’re right, it tends to be a sign from that animal totem or from a loved one who has passed away.

“Another suggestion is to sit in quiet contemplation or meditation. Ask Owl Spirit to join you and share her message. Be specific. Ask her for more signs. She will show general signs with general meanings, perhaps over the course of three or four days; this usually precipitates a bigger message, meaning or event — where you’ll have an ‘ah-hah’ type of moment. Meanwhile, you’ll notice several other signs and synchronicities which correspond.

“The Universe — your Soul, God, angels or whatever you feel comfortable calling that great Source — has many, many ways of communicating with us. Sounds like it’s got your number! Listen with your heart. You can never mistake the voice of Love.

“I Saw A Silver Butterfly … Is It A Sign? A Message?”

Question
“Last night when coming home I noticed a beautiful silver butterfly on my front door. It was so lovely I stopped to admire it for a while and took a picture. The butterfly then fluttered away. This morning I was getting ready in my bathroom and the same butterfly (it looked exactly the same) was dead on the floor. Is this some kind of message? Do you think it means anything?”
— Anonymous

Answer
“I believe the butterfly carries a message for you about life and death — and then rebirth. Take a look at events or circumstances in your life which appear to be ending right now. What’s coming to a close? Do you notice anything cycling back through your life, again, for reexamination? Or has something recently come full circle? I feel that certain life events are coming to a close for you — after which you will experience transition — even perhaps transformation — or a rebirth of sorts. Try to embrace the changes in your life and enjoy the journey!”

Essential Oils For Spiritually Sensitive Children

My middle child, Rafe, age 7, is very empathic, meaning he is sensitive to and absorbs the energy within his environment — especially the energy created from the thoughts, words and emotions of other people. He becomes overwhelmed and emotional; angers quickly and cries easily. Trying to rationalize with him does not help, despite a calm voice and my best efforts.

Our best antidote has come from a tiny bottle of blended essential oils. It soothes Rafe’s moods and helps to even his temperament. I apply it to Rafe’s belly and back — dab it on and rub it in — once or twice per day.

I believe the essential oils help to create an energetic barrier around Rafe’s energy field (or aura) — the missing link which helps Rafe to feel more comfortable in his own skin. The essential oils help to protect him from the swirling energies that his young body and sensitive emotions are not yet equipped to manage.

The essential oil application works best if used prior to large amounts of energy exposure; for example, before school, before a friend’s birthday party or before a trip to the mall. Anywhere Rafe will be exposed to crowds of people (in physical form and in spiritual form).

Rafe is sensitive to spirit energy also. He provides vivid and accurate descriptions of archangels and earth spirit. He loves to share these with me because he knows that I, as a medium, see our spirit friends too; and we reassure each other that there’s nothing to be afraid of.

Rafe tends to see the most Spirit when he’s trying to fall asleep. For this reason, at times, we’ll apply the essential oils just before bedtime. While the essential oils will not protect Rafe from spirit communication exclusively, they do help to soothe his fears and reduce the overwhelm he once felt when confronted with spirit messaging (seeing and hearing his own spirit guides and sensing other forms of spirit in general).

Below is the recipe I use for making essential oil applications for my children. For Rafe, I purchased the “Little Angels” blend online from Floracopeia. It’s a blend of lavender, cedar, chamomile and vetiver essential oils.

Recipe:
1 oz. (2 tbsp.) fractionated coconut oil
6 drops of Little Angels

Little Angels can be found at www.floracopeia.com.

“Balancing The Earth’s Energy Is Greatly Needed …”

“The important thing to remember about an ‘energy exchange’ is the giving and the receiving must occur in balance. And, in order for it to work properly — be mutually beneficial — there must be at least two participants.

“In the Earth’s case, this is not happening in an equal balance — creating the shifts deep within the Earth’s crust, which can result in natural disasters. Thus, energy balancing — balancing these energies ‘manually,’ if you will — is greatly needed.

“Let’s incorporate some time into your day to help balance the energies:

Imagine the Earth in your palm, rotating if you’d like. Take in Her bold colors, beautiful features (whatever that means to you). Softly blow onto your palm, onto Mother Earth. If the intention is there, She can feel you. Blow again. The pure air from your Breath will purify Hers. Simply blow Her cares and troubles away …

“In My Dreams I Was Told To Smoke And Salt The Bathrooms. I Took The Smoke For Saging. Any Idea What The Salt Means?”

Question
“In my dreams I was told to smoke and salt the bathrooms. I took the smoke for saging. Any idea what the salt means?”
— Anonymous

Answer
“Yes, that makes sense; your dream guides are giving you good advice. Energy can accumulate in any room and feel heavy, stuck or stagnant — especially if you’re sensitive. In fact, spirits are drawn to bathrooms due to the running water; water is a conductor, and it can feed their energy.

“Sage or palo santo can be used for smudging. Sage is a dried herb; palo santo a sacred wood. Both can be burned — the smoke, combined with your intention or prayer, is effective at clearing energies. Palo santo has a lighter, sweeter scent if you are sensitive to smells (sage can smell a little like marijuana). Look on eBay or Etsy.

“Salt can be placed in a little bowl in a room for cleansing. Or you can sprinkle it in the corners of a room. Discard the salt after you feel it has had the desired effect. Alternatively, you can mix salt with water in a bottle and spray the room. Refer to the following website for more details: http://www.spooksinvestigations.com/cleansing-you-and-your-house.html

“I generally recommend clearing your home once every six months. But I encourage you to be the barometer: If the energy feels thick in your home, or you notice the presence of new spirit energies, then it’s a sign to re-smudge your space.”

“I Keep Finding Coins All Over My House. Does This Mean Anything?”

Question
“I keep finding coins all over my house. Does this mean anything?”
— Anonymous

Answer
“Yes. They are signs that your angels and departed loved ones are with you, encouraging you, and expressing their love for you. Coins, feathers, rainbows; repeating number sequences, songs on the radio; blinking lights; the scent of roses when there are none; even the animal kingdom, like a cardinal or butterflies, popping up again and again. Also notice messages on street signs, billboards, license plates. All ‘hugs from heaven.'”

“OMG! Guides? Spirits? They Wouldn’t Let Me Sleep Last Night …”

Question
“OMG! Guides? Spirits? They wouldn’t let me sleep last night. I heard a loud buzzing in my ear. Couldn’t understand what anyone was saying. Someone actually smacked me upside the head and yelled at me though. I heard my name loud and clear. Is this going to be typical? I feel like they’re being impatient with me. Very strange.”
— Anonymous

Answer
“Some things to keep in mind: What you are experiencing is normal during a ‘spiritual awakening’ — and while your spiritual or ‘psychic’ senses develop. An awakening is not necessarily easy, smooth or beautiful. Although the outcome will be. But remember nothing is perfect. And nobody is perfect.

“You must learn to work with your spirit guides. Write up some guidelines. Tell them you’d prefer it if they didn’t keep you up at night. Remember they are your peeps. They love you and want what’s best for you. Ask them to be more patient. In turn, try to be patient with them. The process. If they can’t speak to you in the middle of the night (wink), then when can they? Could you set up a time to meditate? And journal? So they know they can communicate with you during that time? That’s ultimately what they’re asking for.

“Believe me, my first awakening was the same way. It was a roller coaster. It will eventually settle down.

“Here’s where angels come into play. Ask the angels to help you have a smooth awakening. Open gradually to your spiritual gifts. Establish boundaries. Experience peace and happiness throughout the whole process.

“Finally, make sure you ask your spirit guides direct questions, like ‘What do you want?’ and ‘What are the next steps I should take?’ Then, make some solid requests, like ‘Please communicate with me in ways I can understand. Please give me time to digest all of this.’

“Your spirit messaging may feel a little ‘mixed up’ right now, as your spiritual gifts develop. Give it some time. Trust the process. Ask for clarity.”
— Ellen

“Let Go — And Allow The Answer To Find You”

“Think not; feel. Ask yourself from time to time — am I in a place where Spirit can move in? Divine intervention sometimes peeks in through the shadows. Where you wouldn’t expect it; and when you’d least expect it. (smile) Make room for it. Accommodate the flow. Instead of pushing so hard to find a way — simply let go. Allow it — your answer — to find you. Be OPEN to receive.”

My heart to yours, Saint Helena

“I Keep Getting Warm Rushes Of Energy Around My Left Ankle And Leg. What Is It?”

Question
“So I’m interested in your opinion. I keep getting these warm rushes of energy around my left ankle on the outside of my leg. It’s been happening for like two weeks now. What do you think that is?”
— Anonymous

Answer
“I’d suggest reading ‘The Everything Guide To Angels’ by Karen Paolino, a book that explains the spiritual — or ‘psychic’ — senses, one of which is clairsentience.

“You are experiencing clairsentience — the warm rushes of energy around your ankle and leg — or communication through your psychic sense of feeling (similar to the physical sense of touch).

“Your angels and spirit guides are beginning to communicate with you. They will develop your clairsentience first; eventually, perhaps, moving on to develop your clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance — or the psychic senses that work best for communications between you and your team in spirit.

“Psychic communication is available to everyone — though unique to everyone. Meaning, every person has different strengths. For example, I’ve always felt clairaudience and clairvoyance are my strongest spiritual senses.

“So, my friend, best for you to read up on the psychic senses. And communicate back! Let your guides know if you like it. If you like it, ask them to give you more. They will. So, you may feel a hand on your shoulder; or someone touch your hair. My favorite is the full-body hug: a shiver or full-body tingle that runs from the top of my head to my tippy-toes.

“Soon you’ll grow accustomed to it, and also have fun with it, which is ultimately the goal: developing your psychic senses, while at the same time developing a relationship with your spiritual team.

“Eventually, in time, and when you feel comfortable, you could begin asking them yes/no questions. Then decide what means ‘yes,’ and what means ‘no.’

Examples:
1.) Head bobbing — My angels/guides like to nod my head for yes, and shake my head for no.
2.) The sway test — In a standing position, your body will sway forward for yes and backward for no.
3.) Pendulum method — Hold a crystal pendulum (or a special piece of jewelry, like your ring) on a chain, ask your question, and then see if it swings front-to-back for yes; side-to-side for no.

“The sway test is very handy in the grocery store. ‘Dearest angels and guides, what’s best for me to eat for dinner tonight: Turkey or beef?’ Then say, ‘Turkey,’ and feel a nudge forward, meaning yes; or say, ‘Beef,’ and feel a nudge back for no.

“You can ask them questions about anything! Little decisions to big moves — our angels and guides love it when we ask. The more you practice asking about little things, the easier it is to trust when it comes to the big things, you know?

“Always remember to say thank you, as the information is gifted to them — from God, Creator or Universe — and then passed on to us.

“Finally, before you attempt any spirit communication, please invoke the protection of the Divine by asking your angels and spirit guides to surround you with a bubble of God’s divine white light of protection.”

“Reach Out To Us For Help — Then Listen”

“Divine energy. It is all around you. At your fingertips. Within reach. You may ask, what am I to do with these energies around me? Shall I harness them on my own? Do I seek out assistance? The answer is ‘yes’ to both. You see, divine intervention does not happen alone. You must seek it out. Come together as One with the Divine. The divine energies are available to everyone — each and every one of you. And we wish to connect with you — establish the connection and keep the relationship open, the communication flowing. How to do so? Trust. Listen. Reach out to us for help. Then listen. What CAN we help you with? Just about anything. What would we LIKE to help you with? We would be most honored helping each of you understand your own unique and individual life purpose. Please, ask.”
