Angels are With Us: Rescues and Miracles Through Divine Intervention

Psychic Viewpoint

Throughout the world, there are descriptions of people who have experienced miracles for themselves or miracles on behalf of loved ones. Others are convinced they’ve heard the voice of God. Here are some of their stories.


The Visionaries of Medjugorje

In a small town in Bosnia-Hercegovina in 1981, a group of six Croatian teenage children reported seeing visions of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Called the visionaries of Medjugorje, the children, now adults, said they were provided specific prayers from Mary to say for the sick, the young, and those that are lost. While some claim the reported apparitions were a hoax, it hasn’t stopped the 30 million people who have made a pilgrimage to the site since it was first reported in 1981.

 “Her beauty cannot be described. It is not our kind of beauty – that is something ethereal – something heavenly – something that we’ll only see in paradise, and then only to a certain degree.”  – Description of Mary, visionaries of Medjugorje


She Couldn’t Believe Her Eyes

Nine-year-old Elysia Laub was sitting at home in rural Indiana when she was told to step outside. She thought the voice was all in her head and turned around. As she was about to enter the front door, she heard a noise in some nearby bushes and was told to investigate it. She took a closer look, and there, beneath the bushes, was a newborn baby with its umbilical cord still attached. Elysia ran inside to get her mother, Heidi, who picked up the baby and called police. The police department determined the baby had been abandoned, but other than experiencing a sunburn and a few bug bites, the newborn survived.


The Hospital Angel of Parkersburg, West Virginia

Author Cindy Parmiter shared a friend’s story about a lady named Patricia who was transported to a hospital in Parkersburg, West Virginia hospital after she experienced a stroke. As soon as Patricia began to recover, she asked about the whereabouts of her nurse, Kelly, who helped her when she first arrived. Her question confounded the hospital staff as Patricia was unresponsive and unconscious when she was admitted and could not have spoken to anyone. Patricia insisted Kelly was there and described her as being in her late 20s, with long blonde wavy hair and blue eyes. She wore white. The night she was admitted, Patricia recalled asking Kelly if she was going to die. Kelly squeezed her hand and whispered to her that “she would be alright … and would live to see her grandchildren grow up.” Staff confirmed there were no nurses named Kelly at the hospital. However, over the years, a number of patients described the same sweet and gentle nurse reassuring them when they were admitted.


The Story of Deepika


Deepika and a friend played a game where they would pick out a place to explore in Delhi, India, and then take public transportation to explore the area. On this day, they decided to visit three temples. However, as the pair began to walk from the first temple to the second one, it became dark and neither was able to determine how to turn around and get back home safely. They began to pray. It was at that moment they noticed a thin man in his 40s walking in front of them. They began to follow him. When they stopped, he stopped, but he never looked back, Deepika said. The man led them through the darkness back to the train station and said, “This is Kalkaji metro station, you can go now.”

“Miracles can happen anywhere all you need is belief.” – Deepika Parashar


Help Me!

On a spring night in 2015, rescuers were called to respond to an accident on the Spanish Fork River in Utah where a car had flipped over in the river. The firefighters and police on the scene later confirmed they heard a female call out: “Help Me! Help Us!” Once they were able to turn over the car and look inside, they saw an 18-month-old little girl, Lily, was unconscious and not breathing. She had been hanging upside down in her car seat. It was 42 degrees, Lily had been hanging upside down for 14 hours. Lily survived. Her mom, authorities said later, died on impact. So who called out for help?


He Fell 200 Feet to Earth and Survived

Korey loved to skydive because he believed it brought him closer to God. By November 2017, he enjoyed the sport so much he became a skydiving instructor.

It was also around this time he did a jump he would never forget.

When he and another skydiver were in the air, they collided 200 feet above the ground and fell to the earth. By some miracle both survived. Korey had a broken neck, broken ribs and internal injuries. His parents were warned Korey might be permanently paralyzed due to the fall. So, the family prayed. When the trauma doctor operated on Korey, he was amazed to find that despite Korey’s extensive injuries, “he could move everything.” Korey was not paralyzed and made a full recovery. Today he works as a sky diving instructor again.


Need Angelic Intervention? Just Ask

I keep a little angel bell on my kitchen windowsill; it’s a gift from my friend Stephanie.

Whenever I think about a person who needs prayers or angelic intervention, I ring the bell. It’s my way of asking the angels to help someone who is in trouble or in need of some divine assistance.

Angels are divine messengers who provide guidance, protection and comfort.

Angels may appear to us in different ways, they may be represented by a flash of light, a spark you see from the corner of your eye, or you may feel a change of air pressure around you. Angels may show their presence through a warm breeze or a good feeling overall.

If an angel needs to share divine guidance you may hear it as an outside voice or hear it as a soft inner voice. If you do, know angels speak to you with love by empowering you to do what is best for you.

October 31st and the Thinning of the Veil Between Worlds

Psychic Viewpoint

Halloween wasn’t always a time to give out treats to youngsters in cute costumes. Originally Halloween was known as Samhain, pronounced Sow-wen, and represented the end of summer on the Celtic calendar. Samhain also marked the transition between seasons as well as a “doorway between life and the season of death.” This doorway was interpreted as a thinning of the veil between worlds, which enabled people to more readily communicate with those that have passed away. The Celts would celebrate the day by adding a plate of food on the dinner table or by leaving food and drink on the doorstep outside for returning spirits.

Likewise, the people of Mexico celebrate Day of the Dead (Dia de Muertos) on October 31. It’s a way to honor and pray for family and friends who have passed away while supporting their spiritual journey.


Halloween is a Great Opportunity to Let Your Loved Ones Know You Miss Them

It really shouldn’t matter what day of the year you reach out to a loved one or a pet that has passed away. However, I tend to believe Halloween does offer a magical quality, making everyone more intuitive, so they can take the leap needed to make contact with a deceased loved one.

Oftentimes, we may find ourselves wishing for one last chat, or to see that special person or pet one more time. I believe our loved ones can hear us and are able to respond in different ways.

We may be visited in our dreams, see something that reminds us of them, hear someone utter a phrase the person said often in life, show us something unique that is symbolic of the lost loved one, find pennies or feathers in our path, hear our name called in a familiar way, or smell a scent that is reminiscent of a loved one.

Pets can also visit from the other side. We may see a depression on the couch or the bed where they once rested, come across a familiar toy in an unexpected place, see someone else’s pet that looks just like the one we lost, hear a bark or a meow that sounds uncannily like the pet that has died, or simply feel the pet’s presence around us.


Does Pretty Girl Live on the Moon?

I had a recent experience regarding my cat, Pretty Girl, who died in June. I was missing her terribly and expressed an interest in seeing her again. That night I had a dream about her. I was told to rent a four-wheel-drive jeep in order to navigate a steep, rocky mountain. It was a difficult drive over bumpy, boulder-strewn roads.

When I finally arrived at the top, I saw a little white house and entered it. Once inside, I noticed an old woman sweeping her floor. Her house was spotlessly clean. I asked the woman, who must have been an Oracle of sorts, if I could see my cat again. She gave me directions, and I drove away into pitch black darkness.

I stepped out of the jeep in a place that looked a lot like the surface of the moon. The stars were brilliant overhead. Everywhere I looked I saw contented cats lounging about, enjoying the night sky. I called Pretty Girl by name, and she came to me. I loaded her up into the jeep, petted her and told her I loved her. I woke up from the dream just as I began driving down the mountain again.
The next day, I had to go by a bank in another part of the city. There in the back of the parking lot was a black cat enjoying the afternoon sun. As the cat glanced at me, I realized she looked just like Pretty Girl, only bigger. Perhaps that was her way of letting me know she was still around?


But I Don’t Have a Dog …

Recently, I had the opportunity to offer psychic readings at a house party. As one lady sat before me, I noticed the presence of a large dog. I said, “What is your dog’s name?” She said, “I don’t have a dog.” I laughed and told her she could have fooled me, because there was clearly a dog sitting at her feet. She then admitted she had a dog, but he had died a couple of years ago. I told her, he was still around her, and described what I saw. She was happy to know that her dog loved her enough to stick around even after he passed away.


Honoring a Bond of Friendship and Love

As the nights get colder and the days become shorter, we may find ourselves missing the conversations and experiences we’ve had with our friends, family and pets that have passed away. The website suggests that moving on after a loss is not always easy. Instead, we should consider incorporating the continuing bond theory into our lives to make the loss easier to handle. Consider taking the following steps:

  1. Talk to them
  2. Write letters to them
  3. Include your loved one into events and special days
  4. Imagine the advice they would give you
  5. Talk about them to someone who doesn’t know them
  6. Live your life in a way that they would be proud of you
  7. Finish a project
  8. Take a trip they always wanted to take

Fire in the Sky!

Psychic Viewpoint

On Friday, September 13, 2019 at 11 p.m. (Yes, it was Friday the 13th!), there was a severe storm in my area of Atlanta. I heard buzzing in my house and wondered, “What is THAT noise?” I stepped out onto my front porch to take a look. I saw dark, heavy clouds appear overhead, listened to the thunder booming over and over and watched as lightning lit up the night sky.

I ran inside and began unplugging all of the electronics and yelled to my partner – Start Praying! I knew this storm was going to be a bad one. We prayed. Then we began visualizing pink and white healing light around our adjacent neighbor’s house as well as our own and the neighbor’s house across the street, which had been hit by a big poplar tree during a storm a year earlier (they had a new baby too!). I pulled out a Tibetan singing bowl and played it around my huge trees in my front and back yard. I urged my trees to stand strong against the storm.

All the trees were so still; there was no movement at all. I could feel chaotic energy building in the air and knew something had to break.

Fire Department Responds in Force

All of the sudden I heard a BOOM! The sound was so close! In that instant I smelled smoke. I said, “Do you smell it? Do you smell the smoke?!” I ran outside and saw that my neighbor’s house two doors down was on fire. I yelled Fire! And ran across the grass in my bare feet to the neighbor’s house. I pounded on the door along with another neighbor, and I yelled out their names. I was scared for the parents, their little boy and their new baby.

As it happened, they saw arcing electric outlets in the attic and ran with their babies and family dog to my neighbor’s house next door just before the lightning hit their house. My neighbor heard me bellowing his name from inside my next door neighbor’s house, came outside and shouted, “It’s OK, we’re safe!”

I looked down at my feet and realized I was standing on burning wood and left quickly. To my surprise, the fire did not burn my feet.

If you’ve read one of the previous stories I’ve written, you may recall I was burned in a house fire, which should have stopped me from taking action with this one. However, at the time all I could think about was I could not let this happen to my neighbors!

A massive oak took the brunt of the lightning strike; it traveled up one of the tree limbs and set a portion of the neighbor’s roof on fire. A great local response by nearby fire stations stopped the fire in its tracks. There is a scar on that tree now; I pray it, too, will be OK.


Controlling Chaos in Your Life

Sometimes, we are faced with situations that we can’t control; we can either take action or run away (the fight or flight syndrome). The same can be said for people. I learned as a teenager that you can’t change other people, only your reaction to them. If you are around someone who asks for direction but takes no responsibility, or someone who sees you in a way that you don’t see yourself, consider taking steps to minimize that person’s impact on you and your life.

Also consider that this person may be in your life to teach you something about yourself or perhaps you are there to teach that person something. In these situations ask yourself: Am I the Student, or Am I the Teacher?

MindBodyGreen suggests the following steps in order to take charge of relationships and situations.

  1. Choose compassion. By putting yourself in their shoes, you may see the cause of the chaos this person brings to you. Could the person be immature? Not in touch with their own feelings? Unable to accept that he or she is responsible for their own actions?
  2. Find the heart within. While someone may seem crass, egotistical and mean on the outside, their may be a small child within that still needs love – badly. MindBodyGreen suggests you pretend as if you are meeting the person for the first time. No past experiences. No expectations.
  3. Understand yourself. By becoming self-aware, you can realize why you are being triggered in any given situation that may annoy you or make you happy.
  4. Consider the Consequences. This is what I call “feeding the monster.” When you respond to someone in an angry manner it makes you feel bad inside, so why do it? MindBodyGreen suggests a healthier exchange or even a neutral one.
  5. Look for the Lesson. Why are you drawing a person, circumstances, situations or difficulties like this into your life? Once you figure out the lesson, you can minimize it or at least gain a healthy perspective. Likewise, this person may be showing you some aspect of yourself that you choose not to recognize or accept. Do you pass judgement? Do you accept other’s views? By acknowledging the lesson, it is much easier to not put the lesson “through the repeat cycle,” and move on with your life.

Two Situations: Two Different Outcomes

I keep a copy of the serenity prayer on my refrigerator. Here’s why: I realize there are things in life that are beyond my control. The serenity prayer is a simple way of reminding myself to respond appropriately whenever possible.

Last week, I “blew up” over a situation that had been building for a while. Instead of feeling better by finally giving in to my anger, I felt bad and a little nauseated by my outburst. I realized the importance of recognizing I was not in control of the situation; it was happening no matter what I thought about it. This realization enabled me to reach a level of acceptance.

The following day, after meeting with a client and doing healing work, I had another out-of-control situation where a driver purposely sideswiped my car to prevent me from merging into a lane. I was stunned, but because I had just worked with someone to promote healing, I was feeling love and kindness towards everyone. I was literally in a different “head space” than the previous day. In fact, much to my astonishment, I did not get angry at all. Instead, I felt compassion for that person. I realized that driver had so much anger inside it could only result in a lot of heartache and health problems. I said a prayer she would find happiness in her life.

Take Charge by Thinking Before You Act

Smart people know they need to wait a minute before reacting to situations. In an insightful article from Dr. Leslie Becker-Phelps in Psychology Today, Dr. Becker-Phelps references a quote from Holocaust survivor Victor Frankl, which she calls, “creating a space between.”

“Between stimulus and response there is a space.  In that space is our power to choose our response.  In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”   – Victor Frankl

Rather than reacting without thinking, Dr. Becker-Phelps suggests finding new ways to respond.

  • Consider the person you would like to be.
  • Think about the meaning or origin of your reactions.
  • Observe the outcome of your reactions.
  • Imagine a better response.
  • Be compassionate with yourself.

One of the keys to becoming a good psychic is to “get out of your own way.” That means being the person you were meant to be: compassionate and caring, non-judgmental, not changing what you “see” based on your own experiences, and being the kind of person your client needs in that moment (open and receptive). In fact, learning to be compassionate in the face of life’s challenges is one of the first steps you can take on the path to enlightenment. Meditation can also foster significant change in this direction.

Psychic Fun: Psychic Fun: Meditate to Supercharge Psychic Ability and Enlightenment

I know how important it is to reduce stress and improve awareness, so I am teaching a meditation class through my local parks and recreation department.

Take 10 minutes every day of quiet time is one of the first steps you can take to enhance your psychic ability. I do a silent, mantra meditation using two words: so and hum. The word so is used as you inhale and hum is used as you exhale. Deepak Chopra created this meditation after he was exposed to transcendental meditation. He shares information about the mantra here:

If a mantra meditation seems too challenging to do, I have discovered an 8-minute meditation created by Jonathan Goldman. One of my students had not meditated previously. He was able to get a lot out of this meditation: Chakras: 7 Minute Tune Up. It’s available for free on Youtube:

Ghosts in the Antique Store

Psychic Viewpoint

Two weeks ago, a friend invited me to visit her in North Georgia. She wanted me to take a tour of the store where she and other vendors sell handmade crafts and antiques.

The two-story, brick and wood-frame store was constructed more than 100 years ago along the town square. Over time, a couple of fires gutted portions of the building, and the store was rebuilt. The only original section remaining was an elevator shaft in the middle, which was used to store empty boxes.

The store was also haunted.

In fact, my friend, other vendors, and the store owner have experienced quite a bit of paranormal activity at the store. Flying Christmas trees, flickering lights, shifting booth displays and whispered words are just a few of the experiences relayed to me by my friend.


The Elevator Shaft

The first stop on my personal tour was the elevator shaft. From what I could determine, several male entities hung out there and requested through me that the employees “clean up the place,” because boxes were stacked up haphazardly, which created a bit of a mess. If ghosts live in a hierarchy, those ghostly guys would be considered the head honchos. They seemed happy enough to be there and clearly liked the place. I believe they were people that worked there many years ago.


The Elderly Couple

As I moved through the store, I “saw” an old couple sitting side by side in a wicker love seat. Even after death, they appeared to be completely in love, which made their presence even more special to me. They didn’t die at the store, and the seat was a new, handcrafted piece. The couple just seemed to like it and were comfortable there.


Creepy Staircase

Sometimes a ghost may not have a direct connection to a building but will choose to inhabit it because old buildings are re-purposed and reused rather than torn down. In other words, the building is steeped in history. That was the case for the two gentlemen I spotted on the stairs. One of the men was standing at the top of the stairs. He indicated to me he had been killed in a gun fight. The other was standing at the bottom of the staircase. He did not indicate why he was there but appeared to be looking up towards the other gentleman at the top of the staircase. I hope that my presence brought them some peace.


Runaway Slaves

The attic was covered with everything imaginable. It was here that I felt fear. It wasn’t my fear, it was the fear of two ghosts – a man and a young girl – who remained somewhat hidden among the boxes. I realized they were very likely runaway slaves from the 1800’s. They did not know it was 2019. I told them it was OK now, they were safe, and no harm would come to them. I felt their relief. Then I heard the man laugh and looked over into the general area where he seemed to be looking. I laughed too when I spotted a soft sculpture of Casper the Friendly Ghost.


Antiques Hold Energy

Sometimes antiques retain the energy of the original owner. This isn’t necessarily a ghost, rather an energy presence or energy signature that may bring paranormal activity with it upon purchase.

That’s because antiques have a history, says Amanda Linette Meder. History could include:

  • The people who owned it
  • How the piece was used
  • Where it was placed before you purchased it
  • Residual energy that has been picked up over the years

I buy specific antiques because they speak to me. Before making a purchase, I will touch an antique to see if it is “real” or a cleverly made copy. I believe when an antique has an energy presence around it, it’s more important than ever to treat the antique with respect and care.


Never Forget

As I walked by the antique stalls, I was drawn to a dusty corner where I saw a canteen from WWII. Over and over I heard in my head, “Never Forget.” I told my friend the man who owned the canteen had died in WWII and remained attached to it. I thought to myself, why do the words sound so familiar? Today I found a quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower referencing the Nazi death camps he saw at the end of WWII.

“The world must know what happened, and Never Forget.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower


The Pearl Necklace

Another lighted display case held a double string of pearls. There was a clear energy presence attached to the beautiful strands. An elderly widow had once loved those pearls and left behind an energy “signature” to make certain they remained safe. I told my friend it was very, very important to appreciate the pearls and treat them with care and not to let children play with them. The lady seemed adamant about not letting children play with the pearls.


The Christmas Room

The resident ghosts seemed to enjoy the Christmas room the most. I kept hearing words in my head: “We love the Christmas room. It’s so much fun!” I let my friend know that whatever the owner decided to do with the space, she should consider keeping the Christmas room intact. Apparently, the ghosts enjoyed moving the decorations around.

Clocks Chime out of Time

On one wall of the store, there were chiming clocks of all kinds. As we walked by, or if we were on the other side of that floor of the store, several clocks would chime, letting us know there was an entity by the clocks. The ghost that stayed in that area let me know he enjoyed caring for the clocks and was detailed in life as well. Perhaps he was an engineer?


Caring for Antiques

So what do you do after purchasing an antique? Clean it, and if possible, and use salt as a way to absorb the energy that may be clinging to it. For more on the topic check out this link: I recall a situation years ago involving another friend. She brought a small set of dried bones on a leather string back from her international travels and hung the bones on a cabinet in her hallway. I asked, “What did you bring home?! Please put them in salt water, and let them dry in the sun. These bones have something attached to them.” She did so, and the unusual paranormal activity in her hallway settled down.


Peaceful Days Ahead

All in all, we counted 21 ghosts in that store and 6 energy signatures. I spoke with my friend yesterday, and she said the ghosts seem to be calmer now. It is my hope that acknowledging their presence in a kind way helped dissipate some of the pent-up energy. I let them know they were welcomed to stay or they could go on to the light.

Psychic Fun: Determining Whether an Antique is Real or a Replica

So how can you tell if an antique is real or not? By letting it speak to you. Do some deep breathing and enter a calm state of mind. Walk into the store and look around and listen. This will allow the real antiques to “shine with their own special light.” When that happens, I will walk over to the antique and lightly touch it with my hand. By doing so, I can feel a slight vibration indicating the antique is worth considering further. If you are still unsure, consider these tips on antiques from the DIY Network:
