A Beacon for Change

Helping You Cross the Bridge to the Real You 

My Story and My Purpose

What a Journey It Has Been

When I think back on my life, I am in awe of how I came to be where I am. More than one person has told me it's a miracle I didn't turn out to be a bitter, trouble-making juvie or a hooker, and I can agree with that. 

From the time I can first remember anything, which was age 3, until I moved out when I was 19, I don't remember having received one sign of affection from either of my parents--no hugs or kisses, no pats on the back for my excellent grades or for having achieved an award of some type, nothing. As the oldest of three children, you would have thought they would have lavished their attention on me, but what I got was a coldness that hurt, especially when I saw my friends' parents treating them with love. 

I also got beatings from my father for no good reason, which were very painful and some to the point of drawing blood. If I had been a rotten little kid, it might have made some kind of sense, but that certainly wasn't the case. Every time that happened, the only thought going through my mind was how could he hurt his little girl that way if he really loved me? So I grew up believing my parents didn't love me at all, and that's a hard thing for a sensitive little girl to take. 

I also grew to resent other kids if they had parents who seemed to care. I couldn't relate to them at all and I always felt uncomfortable around them.

It's All About Love and Compassion

What all that taught me, though, was what it felt like to be in pain, emotionally, mentally and physically, and that I truly didn't want anyone else to have to go through that. Even as a wee lass, I would befriend those who were considered outcasts because of their clothes or because they were in the "slow" group or whatever. I sat beside kids on the bus that no one wanted to sit with because I could feel their pain, and seeing the happiness on their faces when I did told me I was doing the right thing. How could it be otherwise?

Over the years, I began getting better and better at feeling what others thought or felt, and it allowed me to help in ways that others couldn't. I would instinctively know what they needed and it surprised me to realize that not everyone had that capability. Well, maybe they had it, but they didn't recognize it or use it, so for all intents and purposes, it was nonexistent.

At some point, the terms empath and intuitive grew to have more meaning for me. I became the person in the office that others would come to for advice, and when I began my own accounting business, strangers would sit across the desk from me and start opening up about the most personal parts of their lives. It felt strange to have a guy that I didn't know all that well tell me about how the surgeon botched up his prostate surgery, leaving him impotent. That's something guys don't want to tell anyone, especially a female, but I knew that they felt safe with me and that meant more to me than I can tell you.

It's Getting Better All the Time

Today, I continue to use those abilities to help people in whatever way I can. I realized that I needed to do this as more than just an occasional thing so I began the process of switching careers. I don't pretend to have all the answers but I do care about those who ask for my help and they can feel it. Just knowing someone cares in any way, and accepts them for who they are, without judgment, and who can make them laugh when they haven't laughed for a while, is very healing.That, combined with my intuitive abilities, allows me to know what service they need or how to structure it to suit them. Regardless of how many workshops or classes I have taken, that is still my major strength. 

To give you an example of how that can work, I was asked to help someone who lives at least a thousand miles from me. He is in a wheelchair, and has a neurological condition that can be very painful. He took pain meds every day but was still not finding the relief he needed. I did a reading for him and called him so we could discuss it. It turned into a 3-hour phone call, but I knew what he so desperately needed and anything less than that would have been insufficient. It was a magnificent call, and I knew I was saying the very things he needed to hear.

The next day he sent me a text saying he had awakened that morning with only a tiny fraction of the pain he normally felt and that within a few minutes even that was gone. I was blown away by that, but even more now because he has not taken any pain medication since. 

We have continued to talk, and in the time I have known him, he has taken up meditation, is studying various spiritual subjects and has become quite good at remote viewing. He did all that on his own. I never told him to do any of those things, but once the healing process had begun, he became enthused about changing whatever he could and today, he will tell you he is not the same man he used to be! 

There are other stories that I could tell you of those who needed my help who were able to make major changes in their lives, but you get the picture. This is what I am all about. There is no greater feeling than to help someone who feels they have hit a dead-end, or who feels they have no purpose in their lives, or someone who believed it when they were told they would never amount to anything and their life suffered because of it. My mission and my purpose in this life is to help as many as I can, and to show them how to better navigate their journey, and how beautiful they are. I know that what happened in my childhood helped shape me into the person I am today, and so for that, I am grateful. I am truly blessed. 

My Anchor and My Heart

I need to say at this point that having an unbelievable husband who truly loved me and who was, I firmly believe, an angel walking this beautiful planet, taught me so much about true, honest-to-goodness, deep down love. He helped keep me centered and at peace, and I knew that at the end of the day, no matter what had happened during that day, I would see his beautiful face and feel the love and warmth that came from every pore in his body. He is with me now in spirit, but I know that we will be together again, not just in the spiritual, but in our next life, as well, and that makes me very happy. 

One Thing is for Sure...

I know that if you are drawn to me and my work it is because the Universe knows I can help you. There are no coincidences on this planet, and those who are in our lives are here for a reason. 

During a meditation a couple of years ago, I was given a glimpse of the future, in a way. I saw a multitude of people surrounding me who were waiting for the right time to come into my life. They were my future clients/friends and the warm, loving energy I felt from them was amazing. Their souls and mine knew that it would happen when the time was right for both of us, and we were all happily awaiting that time. I see that image in my head now and then and it puts a lot of things into perspective. I hope you're one of those I saw in my meditation and I look forward to meeting you on the physical plane.


Who Am I? 

I don't mean just my name or my occupation, but who I am way down deep. 

I am:

a card reader

a counselor

a spirit

a comedian

a flawed individual

a lover of Nature

a daydreamer

an amateur businesswoman

a storyteller

a healer, on my best days

a mischief-maker, on my worst

a romantic

and someone who is grateful for everything with which I have been blessed

Who Are You?

I'd love to know. It would be so nice to me if you would 

make your own list of qualities or talents

that describe the real you, and if and when you 

contact me, I would love to hear what you came up with. 

Let me know who you truly are, not

just the person you present to the world on a daily basis. 

What a fun time that will be!
