TALK TO SPIRITS: KEEP IT SIMPLE

I wish I could say one more thing, just one more time to say, "I really loved you," or "You were so good in my life." 

Wishing for a chance to talk with the loved one who passed on. Gone from your life.  

Or, has she? Will he never be with you again?You can communicate with them, and they with you. 
What will you say? 

For an opportunity to do so, keep it simple to get your message across. The telepathic airwaves are fill of energy with a lot of chattering all over the world - many thoughts going on, sent out - incoming. Enough to drive people mad! 

Too many words, too many questions, too long - in spirit talk/communication the message becomes complicated to decipher and answer especially in distressed states. 

Think when you've been wrapped up in grief, crying, (sobbing) and someone attempts to comfort you. Hard to hear them, isn't it? 

Over complicated messages are lost in translation. An example: "Oh (NAME), I'm so horribly lonely, I cry every night. Life is too hard without you. Why did you go?! How could you leave me?" 

Complaining has mixed emotions: "Daddy, Bobby is still the rotten brother he always was. I love him but, I hate how he is to me. I'm so sad without your shoulder. Can you help me?"  

What goes out? High pitch noises twirling through the ethers, sparking off other confused messages. 

Keep it simple. Like Twitter, don't use too many words, as a Morse code, tap, tap, repeat, tap, tap, repeat. Here are some helpful suggestions: In a quiet space - no phones -no pets - sit sit still, take some deep breaths.

Often when we want to talk with our dead we're crying, emotionally distraught - understandably so, but this won't help with getting your message across.

If you can, think of the person in a good light, perhaps a cheerful memory, or favorite photo. 
Keep the image in mind as you begin your simple clear message.

Start with a greeting. Sometimes in a  group spirit communication (seance) the medium asks a participant to call out her or his dead person's name, maybe even three times. You can can also do that. I.e. Mary, pause, Mary, (see her face), Mary.

Add a salutation: Mary, my love, Mary, Mom, Friend - hello, hi, it's me.


Mary, my love or Mary, hello love, it's me, (your name). 


Pause. Take a moment to gather in your emotions. It's often very emotional when communicating to those who have passed physically from our lives. Keep them upbeat as possible.


You might sense a presence, or an unseen hand on your arm, the room might chill or even a warmth spread across your heart.


Now to your purpose of communicating. You start with a question (usually does) or a statement. Keep the words brief and simple:

 I miss you. 
What is like where you are? 
Can you hear me? 
Are you pain free? 
Are you still with me? 
I love you.

Give a news update of your life: Your grand(son or daughter) is a happy kid, a smart one etc. Or, I did get that job like you said I would.

Pause. Wait for a few moments or longer, keep in mind a good memory, relax, smile, open your heart. Perhaps you will feel, hear, sense, or mentally see a response.


To learn more about spirit communication and how they communicate back, read about my knowledge, education and spirit experiences (working with the police, attacked by vampire spirits) in How To Talk With Spirits: Seances, Mediums, Ghost Hunts.

REFLECT ON WHAT IS PASSING AWAY

Skidding to the end of 2016

Hold on a sec! 

Make 2017 Real to You!

Something I do at the end of each year, and also ask my coaching clients to do, is to reflect upon the passing year before declaring New Year's Resolutions (goals). Reflection allows us to gauge progress and have a reality check on whether we completed goals, left unfinished or unfulfilled ones dangling, came to understand no energy need be put in some goals - the forget-about-it ones, and reflection gives us time to understand life lessons learned.

Plus, doing so, can help you decide what has true value and holds real interest to you to act upon in the New Year.

2016: Think back to the beginning months; what you hoped for and focused on; your resolutions, goals, hopes, focus, dreams. What you said you were going to get done! And why? What made them important to you?

Take inventory: where are you with that now in December 2016? What did you attain? Are you feeling fulfilled with accomplishments? Surprised or felt unprepared with what happened in the year? Did you learn anything new about yourself, others, life and opportunities?

Then again, you might be just glad you made it through the year with all the challenges and disappointments crushing your strength.

No matter if you thought '16 was a win, a loss, both, ask yourself, what was my biggest life lesson?  Was it about my behavior, beliefs, my personality?

How would you sum up the passing year in a few words or lines?

I say, my year was tough one to stay positive and progressive.

I had decided it's okay to be mostly retired, give up with this is who I am, to I'm just enjoy life more so, be more playful, and not being the "workhorse" as I've been for many, many years.

That didn't quite happen.

I did take more time for play, but with grandchildren rather than friends as I intended. Caring for them (as a help to my son and his wife) was also time consuming and tiring. I learned how my sense of loyalty trapped me to overwhelming responsibilities that left little or no time to care for myself.

During the year I found it challenging to stay in my usually positive, progressive attitude with a son whose surgery went wrong, a mother whose stroke started months of a sad decline before passing away, a toddler grandson with a fractured leg, and then yesterday a favorite dog friend, died. My challenges might seem insignificant with what is going on in the world, too many dying from warring tribes, governments in chaos, but to me, it was a challenge and eye-opener to own self beliefs about who I am.

I'm certainly not saying I wouldn't have done the labor of love, caring for my mother, helping my son's family, but I also realized how, for all my life,  I take on too much responsibility and neglect my own needs.

And through the challenges. my spiritual beliefs and practice flourish with taking responsibility of being a Group Leader for the San Francisco Rosicrucian monthly meetings. It certainly was timely to keep me focused on the Higher Road.

What about you? What were your challenges and what inspired you to move through or rise above them?

Even if you make no goals, but think of what you want to get done:

REFLECT: Before you think about where you're going or declare 2017goals, look over the passing year to settle up what might not have come to fruition; decide what is really not important to you (that would be goals you carry on each year but don't enjoy, value or move them along - the usual lose weight, get up earlier to get more done, save money).

THINK: what happen that piqued your interest, grabbed your curiosity, gave your spirit a lift? Did something or someone unexpected wander into your life? Did you have a crushing reality about yourself? An awareness of what life really is all about?

A New Year's Goal setting must have true value to you - that which is in your heart and dreams - tickles your fancy & imagination, challenges you to move beyond the same old, that would nice, inspires you to be more of who you are!

Give your New Year's Resolutions (goals & intentions) a real chance to manifest by making it real to your senses: see, hear, taste, touch, smell it  - create an image, a picture, know it is your intention to manifest in 2017.

I see my books flying off the shelves into the hands of happy readers!

My 2017 goal - publish in print my very popular eBook, "How to Talk With Spirits: Mediums, Séances, Ghost Hunts" - available Amazon Worldwide and Smashwords.com

FREE EBOOK - FLOWER POWER TURNS TO FIRE POWER!


"When flower power turns into fire power" 

- Deidre M. Murphy

City of Redemption - a Novel by June Ahern

Posted 12/6/16 Time Limited.

Flower power ignites into firepower when a lonely young woman entangles herself in a treacherous plot and murder during the Summer of Love. 

Kidnap, murder, drugs, and love. 

FREE BOOK: The City of Redemption in paperback mailed within USA or eBook in exchange of an honest review. First 4 responses by comment or email june @ sf coaching dot com.

The Haight/Ashbury also appears in my first novel, The Skye in June. Yes, I was part of the '60's Haight scene in San Francisco and write with the experience of the times and people who helped change society's rules. Hippies, Panther's, Hell's Angels - riding through the Haight, love, protests, and violence all wrapped into the times.

More about the story below.

The Season of Sharing is 12 months a year. 

Synopsis 
It is 1983 and Liz MacKay waits for parole for the murder of former roommate, Ricky Martinez. Is she guilty? Or is she serving time for another’s crime? 

In 1967, partly to blame for her young son's death and abandoned by her husband, Liz Mackay flees Scotland in disgrace, hoping for a second chance at love and life. She arrives in San Francisco during the Summer of Love to lose herself among the groovy people. She joins a commune; a curious mix of Black Panthers trying to change the world, a Vietnam vet seeking inner peace, a flamboyant hairdresser ready for fame and love, a flower child and her drug dealer boyfriend who changes girlfriends often. At first, Liz is happy to have found a welcoming home, but as her new roommates pry into her mysterious past Liz's search for a "jolly good time" brings more grief and a worsening drug addiction. Liz is unwittingly drawn into the dark underbelly of violence and addiction with a callous drug-dealer and a treacherous plot to bring down the Black Panthers. Her unlikely friendship with Black Panther Toni Bordeaux, leads Liz to redemption for her shameful past.

The strong plot and dialogue of "City of Redemption" exposes the seldom seen seedy side of the Summer of Love. It is a vividly recounted story of lies, betrayal, sex, drugs and murder takes place during an unforgettable time and place in history.
