I had this total epiphany about death …
2 years ago my mom died and it totally shattered me.
It was completely unexpected!
She was on a month-long vacation in Hawaii and on her last day there she called me and left a message saying she loved it there so much that she didn’t want to leave.
That evening she had a stroke, and a few days later passed away. She never left Hawaii in the physical …
It was a very different death experience than when my husband died after a 7-year battle with cancer. I had time to say our goodbyes. But with my mom it was so sudden and so shocking .
I always ask my Guides and Angels what they want me to talk to people about and they said:
Love doesn’t die. It multiplies!”
“You’re still in connection with your mom, but in a non-physical way.”
If you’ve had a loss in your life and you really feel that you’re wanting to move forward, but you don’t know what the steps are I’d love to have a conversation with you.
Your Loved Ones are sending you messages all of the time …
You are NEVER alone!
Just ask for Love and Guidance and you WILL get it!
Love and Blessings,
People like to get excited about things. There’s an element of giddy happiness in waiting for a special date to arrive, to see a special person, or to experience a moment built up in our minds to be extremely important and joyful. This is the kid on Christmas morning in a nutshell.
What does that tell us about what makes us happy? It’s certainly worth noting that we actually derive happiness from the anticipation of something we think will make us happy. How strange is that?
The act of waiting for something good to happen can actually boost our day-to-day happiness! So, if you want to use this to your advantage, try giving yourself something to look forward to!
You could plan a trip to somewhere special, and even if it means saving over the long-term, putting the details in place as you go, and setting a date far enough in advance to get all your preparations in order, you’ll have something great to anticipate the entire time!
If you’re feeling stressed or unhappy, you can simply look at that date on the calendar, and let the eager anticipation of your awesome vacation brighten your spirits!
In fact, this “tactic” works with more than just vacations or elaborate trips. It’s about giving yourself something to look forward to, no matter how small. If this sense of anticipation helps boost happiness, then why not always give yourself fun things wait for?
Maybe this means planning your social life well in advance, or making a point to pick a few exciting outings to plan every few months. Whatever it is that you find yourself looking forward to, time with family, adventures with friends, calm evenings alone, or anything else you get enjoyment from, try to plan it out a little bit!
Just having those events marked on your calendar will give you something to anticipate, and in turn feel happy about. Just like planning a vacation or special trip, having those happy events to look forward to can help you overcome feelings or stress and anxiety. It’s like having a light at the end of the tunnel!
So, what do you have to look forward to?
I’m back from my vacation in Ireland and it’s the first day of school for my kids, where did the summer go? OK, I admit it, I’ve been home for a couple of weeks – actually 17 days – and I’m just now getting back to my blog. I feel guilty and ashamed… which is my own doing. I am the only person that can make me feel this way. I have to say that I’ve been struggling with this whole new concept of my life. I quit my well paying hedge-fund accounting job four months ago so I could go “full-time” spiritual. What does that mean exactly? I’m still trying to figure that out. While I contemplate you can check out a few pictures from my summer vacation – hey, I think my kids are sharing this video at school today too…
