    living next door for the past six months He shook his head in wonder that I didn t know her You re kidding I answered I ve never seen her before Yes you have Patrick insisted You ve seen her hundreds of times You ve just never paid attention to her before Boy did I ever feel like a fool Patrick was right My awareness had truly shriveled up in the past few years Ever since Sabrina was born my life had speeded up so much that it became a blur I spent my days trying to manage so much the two girls both in diapers rehabbing our two flat building with Patrick while he worked two jobs keeping up on my one on one work with clients and giving workshops All of this was crammed into a very short 24 hour day and I was so overwhelmed with so much activity that there were days when I couldn t even remember what I had done let alone was conscious of anything And now staring at a neighbor as if she were a complete stranger I realized that in my effort to do it all I had spiraled right out of my own body and off the planet Earth I was so otherly focused that I had lost the ability to see the nose in front of my face Though Patrick and I laughed about it at the moment that experience was a real wake up call for me Where was I Where had I been Where was my awareness lately I asked myself As I reflected on the previous year I could hardly bring any of it into focus Nothing stood out As I watched my girls carefully scrutinizing the ants on the sidewalk I realized that in all my hurried doings I hadn t really been present in my life Not to them Not to anything I watched my daughters gleefully examining a fallen leaf First Sonia eyeballed it very closely and then she handed it to Sabrina who promptly popped it into her mouth It felt good to be back in the moment leaving my mental rat race behind I took in a long deep breath savoring the air as it filled my lungs and energized me As I exhaled and sat in that quiet moment before the next breath my awareness exploded into a symphony of acute sensuality I began to notice things I hadn t noticed before Colors became brighter Sounds became more crisp My children were no longer mental extensions of me but returned to being the unique and precious beings that they were It was as if someone had just tuned my mental TV channel from fuzzy black and white to sharp brilliant color Slowly luxuriously even I took another breath Sonia tottered toward me screaming Mommy a ladybug Sabrina spit out her leaf and followed her sister Sonia held up her baby hand to me and right in the middle of it

    be practical when setting the stage to connect There is no need to advertise your intention to those who wouldn t be receptive enough to understand and respect your effort just as you don t advertise writing in a journal Just quietly find undisturbed time and work in deserved privacy SETTING THE INTENTION To ensure that you make contact with high spirit guides and not freelance entities that will do you no good it is important to set your intentions You can do this in several ways First start by saying a short prayer asking your angels to protect you and only allow high vibration guides to enter your frequency as you write You can also light a small votive candle to indicate the light of your spirit intending only to receive guidance that supports the highest good of your spirit You can also write your intention to only connect with spirit guides that are on a very high and loving frequency and will assist your soul s growth or you can simply state out loud that you intend to work only with the highest vibration guides possible and block out all lower frequencies from this exercise Once your intention is set you can begin writing to your guides immediately State your questions one at a time The first question my students ask me is whether to use pen and paper or a computer Out of habit I used to say always use pen and paper because it s more organic and bypasses the brain But then I ran into people like my husband Patrick who has terrible handwriting which stresses him to write or my daughter who has dyslexia which confuses her They both find writing on a computer easier Now I say write by hand unless it causes you stress if so use a computer as long as you can flow with it When writing to your guides by hand you have two options either use your dominant hand to write the question and your other hand to write the answer or mentally change channels and use your dominant hand for both Do what feels best the key is to write quickly and get into flow Just know the guides will show up when asked and whichever method you use is a matter of how you best give up control Your guides don t care Of course using a computer eliminates and conflict Once you ve set your intention and started to write introduce yourself and ask for guidance in this way I am Sonia and I am asking my spirit guides for assistance and support at this time Be polite and respectful and remember you are asking for guidance and not turning your life over for the spirit world to run Word your questions appropriately avoiding should I questions but asking what guidance can you offer on this fill in the blank subject Approach your guides gently Don t bombard them with too many questions at once

    me in my office when I do readings at the foot of each of my daughters desks when they do homework sometimes pacing back and forth between them and in my husband Patrick s office in the afternoons When she is present we all feel much calmer and happier Cats are also incredible teachers and communicate to our souls I ve never owned a cat because I am allergic to them but my brother Anthony has had two cats Summer and Winter Girl tabbies who have kept him grounded and amused through many highly emotionally challenging times of illness and stress Their antics and calming presence have kept his heart open and happy when he could have easily shut down In many ways they were his healers and he says so all the time Birds are another creature who will speak to you A client Marion relied on birds to guide him He was about to undertake a new business venture which involved opening movie theaters with his brother in law when he spotted an owl two nights in a row in his backyard Knowing owls are predators who are active at night he felt it was a signal that his brother in law would be sneaky and aggressive as a partner a suspicion he already held Thanking the owl for the warning Marion declined to enter the partnership Once he made that decision the owl left Disappointed his brother in law took on another partner Eventually he and the new partner began fighting over who owned what and many sneaky accountings by both were revealed The theaters closed and lawsuits were filed My client s personal relationship with his brother in law however thanks to the owl remained intact Another time I was in a deep quandary over whether to write my autobiography which I had been asked to do Uncertain if my life story would be of any value to others I asked my guides to give me a definite sign and then went to bed This happened when I was with my family on vacation in France visiting the family I had spent time with years earlier as a young student Suddenly as if awakened by some higher force I shot out of a deep sleep at five in the morning and looked out the window Heading straight toward me was a beautiful white dove and I mean straight towards me It flew into the bedroom window and hit me squarely in the head Knowing from my teachers that birds are messengers of the soul that startling sign assured me that writing the book was something I must do for my soul if not for others The poor dove got knocked for a loop and landed in a daze in the corner of the bedroom but recovered her composure after a moment or two and flew out the window and into the sunrise I wrote the book I don t know about others but it was good

    carried away by the chaos of the world and the results are vastly different surprisingly When we create on an unconscious level we do it through attention At this level our thoughts run rampant and wild and are easily manipulated by outside influences past negative patterns and world fears These energies capture and hold our awareness hostage and consequently like all endless vicious cycles we keep reproducing disappointment after disappointment as our creation Look at your life right now and see how it reflects your attention Along with it comes your unconscious creation I had a client named Lynn who focused her attention exclusively on being alone An only child and an orphan because both parents had died she was abandoned by both her husband and her boyfriend leaving her of course alone in the world Her attention was so mesmerized with her aloneness that she literally deflected or sabotaged any effort from others to connect with her in a more intimate way Though she desperately wanted to create intimacy and connection her attention was focused otherwise and wouldn t budge I ve known her ten years and in that time nothing has changed Until her attention shifts nothing will The second and much more powerful way to create is consciously through intention Intention reflects accurate awareness and understanding and acceptance on your part that thought creates and that you choose to use your thoughts in a way that serves you A set intention directs thought on an unwavering course It parts the Red Sea of opposition and begins to bend and shape the physical world in exactly the way you want it to go as if my magic what appears resistant gives way to cooperation and what may have felt like a struggle gives way to ease Always Reflect on areas where you ve set an intention and succeeded and see what I mean Simply notice the higher more intense vibration that intention holds over attention and the power it propels forward Intention owns and channels thought It dictates the course and commands control over all external forces The world submits to unwavering intention always It is the law Think of various ways in which you ve set intention in your own life and notice the creative outcomes they ve produced Recently my older daughter Sonia upon getting her first car invited her younger sister Sabrina out for an inaugural ride three blocks from our house she unexpectedly hit a pot hole in the road which bent her tire rim and gave her a flat tire Shocked and angry she had the car towed back to the dealership where she explained what had happened To her outraged they said tough luck and not our problem and dismissed her saying it would cost 350 to fix Intending justice she refused the verdict Unwavering she wrote the dealership manager the car manufacturer and the tire manufacturer insisting the rim and tire be immediately replaced without charge So focused on the outcome

    human being myself included without thinking that we too had a similar moment Recognizing that it is your spirit that gives you life helps you appreciate the formidable force that is you Though we all share the same eternal breath of life it manifests differently in each of us and in all things The best way to connect with your own spirit is to start by recognizing what makes you come alive Your spirit has its own presence its own unique vibration that is totally distinct from your personality which to a large degree is formed as a defensive shield around your spirit Begin to wonder what your unique spirit is really like Getting in touch with your own spirit is the first step in getting in touch with spirit guidance How would you describe your spirit Not your mind not your body but the eternal fiery life force called you Is it gentle Passionate Commanding Tentative Creative Shy Playful Where in your life do you feel competent What activities engage you so fully that you lose yourself What lifts your spirit Next begin noticing what feeds your spirit By this I mean what experiences activities and energies give you strength fortify and nourish you at your core leave you feeling satisfied content with life and comfortable in your own skin What activities experiences and energies delight and surprise you draw you into life help you embrace life head on leaving you at peace within yourself Start by paying close attention to your day to day life Recognize the moments when you feel fully engaged and peacefully involved What are you doing Focus on activities that leave you with a sense of contentment and satisfaction Better yet note when you laugh feel light hearted and weightless in your skin These are the moments that your spirit is responding to These are the experiences that open you up to the larger world of spirit guides Start raising your sensitivity to your spirit by being very aware of and honest about how you feel Responding to your spirit and giving it what it needs leaves you feeling satisfied and peaceful For some of you knowing what your spirit needs may be perfectly clear so go at it and begin to respond Don t worry that feeding your spirit will wreak havoc in your life a little goes a long way when it comes to being sensitive and responsive to your spirit If you love nature for example a guilt free walk or run through a park or nature preserve or a few hours in the garden once a week is all that s necessary to feed and restore your spirit The key word here is guilt free If you love shopping and exploring exotic places a few hours in new neighborhoods new stores will do the trick You don t have to buy or buy much to satisfy your love of adventure Just enjoy the variety of the outing without excuse or

    is spirit vibrating at different frequencies We all know for example that atomic particles vibrate at particular frequencies just as light waves do Ocean waves have frequencies there s even the rhythm of our heartbeats Because everything is a sea of vibration in motion it s only natural that we as spiritual beings are able to connect with other spirit frequencies If we recognize ourselves as spirit we can more easily recognize the inhabitants of the nonphysical world as well The spirit world is as populated as ours myriad different guides work at various frequencies all the time Consequently there are many kinds of guidance with which we can connect guides who once lived in the physical world family members who have crossed to the Other Side guides you ve shared past lives with guides who come as spiritual teachers to oversee your path healers who can assist in your physical and emotional care helpers who make day to day living easier nature spirits and elementals that connect you with the earth animal spirits to guide your path even joy guides to keep your own spirits high when life becomes too heavy and hard There are angels saints devas masters and God There are even guides or wannabe guides who are not on a high level at all but who are just troublemakers that must be watched I ll write more about them later Sadly I ve also come to realize that what is second nature to me being aware of and working with my guides is unfamiliar to many if not most people around me It s so unfortunate that I ve witnessed others unconscious of the spirit plane and disconnected from their guides struggle in fear and desperation feeling lonely and abandoned as they fight through life with no awareness of the loving spiritual support that s available to them at all times Because I ve been so blessed by my guides support and have realized it from childhood I ve made it my life s mission to help others become aware of their own guides Just as I ve been helped I want everyone to know that they can be helped too I m not special in receiving guidance no one is We re all Divine children of the Universe and each of us has a spiritual support system committed to making our life s journey easier and more successful from the moment we re born to the moment we leave our physical bodies and return to spirit Not being aware of this fact handicaps us The Universe is designed to care for and guide all its creatures Birds have radar bats have sonar and we have guides When we awaken our sixth sense and learn how to connect with our angelic guides our lives naturally fall into a pattern of ease and flow during which we grow our souls fulfill our life s purpose and make our time on Earth endlessly entertaining We re all trust

    create what we focus or meditate on The secret is that we do not create what merely fleets across our minds but rather what we concentrate on or in fact meditate on Meditation is the practice of concentrated focused thought Intense thought held over a long period of time brings about its counterpart in the physical world In fact quantum physics verifies our experiences are simply thought in motion That s why meditation is so powerful It literally shapes and creates the world you experience So if you meditate on worry you shape your experience to reflect what you worry about That s the secret to meditation and why meditating on nothing is not necessarily a productive effort This is not to say that it is not a good idea to clear your mind of negative thoughts and keep focused on the Divine our source because it absolutely is We all need to relax our brains and remind ourselves where our blessings come from But a more active and powerful means of meditation is to become skilled in unwavering focused attention on what we do wish to experience Moreover we must keep this focus to the exclusion of all else and be able to hold that focus over a consistent period of time Do you realize what being able to do this will open up to you Anything you desire That s what is so exciting Unwavering focus is the key to what my teachers call successful active meditation The ability to hold your focus concentrate it which means to intensify make stronger what exactly you desire and want It literally shapes the psychic fluid of the physical world to mold to your thought That s where real skill comes in From this new vantage point I hope you can understand where sitting passively and focusing on nothing becomes evidently a waste of time Sitting quietly however and concentrating on the love of God and the Divine Spirit in all living things becomes quite another matter In fact this becomes a very powerful meditation in which to shape your experience Just imagine what your life experience would be like if you did concentrate your thoughts and attention on how much God loved you on how much joy God took in showering you with blessing upon blessing Imagine meditating on this to the exclusion of all other thoughts for a concentrated period of time A student of mine Ed decided to do just that when I proposed the idea to see what happened His first realization once he began he said was that he noticed just how focused he was on how little love he felt or noticed in his life To help him along he decided to support his new focus by finding evidence of God s love He first found it in the beauty of his garden which when in bloom brought him tremendous joy He also found evidence of God s love in his good health something that
