As I get ready to launch Oracle School this fall, I think back to this summer and the extraordinary opportunities I had to serve the groups I was invited to speak at. I taught some powerful workshops, but I also did readings and mediumship. I’m still amazed at how this has all transpired for me, given my former resistance to fully embrace spiritual mediumship as a natural progression of my service.
I remember vividly how, years ago every time I heard the Call to this particular facet of service, well I answered it, then was suitably stunned, and promptly hung up the celestial phone. “Um, No way… too many weirdos, too many haters, too much responsibility, not enough proof, too many others doing this well, such strong tradition, not for me” etc. etc. etc.
Call back later I’ve made other plans.
Have you ever run away from the one thing that lights you up and makes your heart sing for fear of what others might think, feeling unworthy perhaps or just plain not wanting the responsibility?
I fought the truth of my life for so long I exhausted myself. I always wanted to be something else. I thought I was going to do readings only until my music career took off. I was no way going to be known as a medium, or psychic! Can you believe it? I had a ginormous chip on my shoulder about this, and yet it was calling me all the time. My authentic life was always waiting for me. I had to surrender.
And look where I am now. Although I retired from readings a couple of years ago so I could focus on creating oracle cards and launching Oracle School, I still do mediumship for charity, and I love it so much… it’s like getting a shot of B12.
I am as woo woo as they come and I’m also a science nerd. Why not be everything you are? I didn’t think I could.
Even though I have done mediumship as a natural part of my readings for 30 years, I always said “ I’m not really a medium. I am just really good at tuning into information about those who crossed over so don’t call me that.” It was only since my motorcycle accident six years ago that I have heart and soul allowed all this to be so public, no longer apologizing for “intruding” on this sacred ground with my unconventional delivery. No more “ I don’t really do this,” etc. Here’s the bottom line. As soon as I step on a stage, “dead people” talk to me and they have a whole lot to say and so bring it on. Those in the afterlife are pretty clear that I’m open for messages and for delivering healing for their loved ones still here.
Yes, I had other less woo woo and more artistic career plans and aspirations because I just wanted to fit in and because I was afraid of what I’d discover – I’d be too weird! But Spirit just laughed, and so here I am. Today I have no fear, and I am loving my weird.
My TV show Messages from Spirit (Amazon Prime and Youtube) is all about this- spiritual mediumship as a catalyst for healing and transformation.
Surprise I talk to dead people.
And I am humbled and awestruck and stunned and filled with such gratitude.
I didn’t hang up this time.
But regardless of what this is, or, even what I’m doing or how others are being impacted at all, this story is about answering the Call – your call and stepping into the Unknown to discover who and what you are. I don’t do mediumship as a full-time gig, it’s a part of what I do, but it’s a beautiful thing and not something I hesitate about anymore. It called me, and I had to answer. And I am so glad I did. Being authentic is accepting all parts of you and not trying to place limits on your gifts and skills and interests out of fear.
I wonder how you see yourself evolving in your life and if you’ve struggled in any way with fully accepting who you really are, what you’re really called to do, and how that will change you if you step into that authenticity.
I know for me fear was the rapacious creditor, the one force that exacted the price of my true Self.
When you make decisions motivated by fear nothing bright can shine. At best you will be creating a structure without a soul. You wonder why you’re not happy.
Maybe you heard the Call and just said no it’s too scary I am going to stay right here thank you very much and slammed the spirit phone down.
But once you hear the Call, you can never un-hear it. You know? You will always sense there is something more, something deeper, something beckoning, something Unknown waiting. It changes you even if you say no to it.
I know the exact moment when I hung up was when I got a letter and a petition from a church suggesting that I seemed like a nice lady but did I know I was channeling Satan, followed by some threats online. I admit it. I was scared. I had so many other gifts it was easier to try to create something safer with those.
The most important lesson I have learned from all of this is to trust Spirit, to let go the need to please others, to refuse to care about what “they” think, either good or bad other people’s opinions of me are none of my business. Haters and trolls go after everyone, and a bright light attracts a lot of bugs.
Do you know what I mean?
Have you ever said no to your Calling, so others will like you?
Do you fear that you will be ostracized for being different?
Are you answering your call now?
If so tell us what it’s like so others can explore too.
Don’t hang up
I will not dim my light for anyone ever again. Say this with me 3 times and click your heels.
Grace is bestowed on us when we answer the Call.
Miracles will happen for you too when you say yes to the Call regardless that it may lead you into some weird and Unknown places.
You Be You. Stand in your Truth, your Power, your Service whatever it will be.
Spirit, or the Universe, Source, the Divine, etc. no matter what you call this Great Intelligence – IT, not YOU, will decide the form.
Spirit is calling. Your miracles are waiting. Will you answer?
Thank you for letting me share mine with you.
Love you always and forever.
