How are you? Thank you so very much for your help. You have a very calming nature and come across as someone who really cares. Thank you so very much for being who you are.
This past summer I received two job offers, and I declined both due to the offer of pay. I have two children (one 14 and one 11) a boy and a girl. I want to work for the federal government and live in Sterlin, VA, but I want to receive pay that will be worth me uprooting my children from Arkansas to VA.
I feel like I did the right thing in turning down the positions, because I really wanted to leave and work for the federal government but not at the detriment of my children having to suffer. Did I make the right decision? Will I receive another offer for a job with a federal agency and if so, when? I feel like I will receive another offer by the way, but I am not sure of when.
I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great day. — Emily
It's true: one reason you declined the jobs was because they didn't pay enough. But you also made the decision to choose your children over your career, because you felt that would be best for them.
In other words, you listened to your heart.
You understood what a big deal it would be to uproot two children ages 11 and 14, both in mid high and early high school, when it's hard enough to deal with the day-to-day, let alone throwing a move into the mix.
When we work from our hearts like this, the decision is alway correct. Commend and congratulate yourself, on your ability to see clearly from the heart, and to follow your heart in your actions.
The next question: will you get a job with a federal agency soon? My question for you here is, is this what your heart wants, and why?
If you seek this kind of job for security, have you learned the lesson yet that there isn't really anything that's "safe" or "secure". Life just is. We're not here to hide out in the stable, sure thing. We're hear to be passionate and joyous in what we do!
So, look at that. Look at why you really want this type of job, and if this is really what you want, in your heart.
I am from India, 54 years old, married with two lovely daughters. The thing is, my family is beset by so many problems that I can feel no joy or happiness when I talk or think about them.
I do not have my own home. We made some rash decisions when young and did not save or invest enough and as a result do not have the money to buy our own home.
I have been diabetic and hypertensive since the age of 30. My health is not good, I have a frozen shoulder and sciatica in addition to my diabetes and hypertension and very weak leg muscles. My personal life has not been happy either. I was married when young and had a daughter when I was 23. I was not treated well by my husband and his family members and I left him when I was eight months pregnant. I raised my daughter as a single mother and was fortunate to meet my current husband after a while. He has been absolutely a wonderful father to my daughter and she adores him and looks up to him. My mother in law was not happy with my marrying my husband and she ill-treated and insulted me all her life. My second daughter was born with heart disease and this lady's response was that she had cursed me for marrying her son and that's why my daughter had been born with heart disease! She also favored her other daughter in law and daughter while handing out jewellery and gifts and I allowed myself to get hurt by her partial acts.
My elder daughter has been a learning disabled child and it was with great difficulty that I pushed her to complete her education. The doctors have diagnosed her as having a personality disorder. She also developed diabetes at the age of 19. She got married at the age of 25,an arranged marriage to someone known to our family and distantly related as well. She did not get on with her husband and in-laws and the boy was also at fault. After her divorce, she started working but can not keep a job for long but I can not say that she is at fault any of the times. She cannot get on with my second daughter and they constantly fight with each other. Right now, she is staying in another city but she has quit her current job as they were not treating her well and is applying for other jobs.She is lonely and wants to settle down in life.I feel she is down on her luck and needs a big dose of fortune!!
My younger daughter has finished her diploma in Art and design. At present she needs to focus on what she needs to do next.She is quite undecided about what to do but she also whiles away her time not doing anything much.She is very short tempered and loses her cool very easily. She suffers from acidity and severe menstrual cramps also.
I would like to buy or build a beautiful home of my own.I would also like my health problems to be cured.I am worried about both my kids. I want them to be loving responsible adults, loving to each other. I want my elder daughter to be favoured by Lady Luck, cured of her diabetes and personality disorder, find a good job and find someone she can be happy with. I want my younger daughter to be more patient and calm, be cured of her health problems, study further and find her vocation in life and settle down eventually.
Please help me Sara. Please guide me in attracting good health and fortune for my family. Thanking you in advance—K.
It must feel as as though you have a lot on your on your plate; as if there is a lot resting on your shoulders. I'd like you to look at two ideas, and see if they resonate with you.
First, the idea that you are a mother, but your children are grown. It is very hard to let go of the need to help, support, take care of and make things right for our children. And yet, that is the job of the mother: to raise our children as best as we are able, and then to let them go into the world, to make their own way. It's not that we every stop loving or caring for them. However, we do let the move into the world as individuals, with the understanding that they will have their own issues, their own soul lessons to learn.
We can't learn the soul lessons for our children. The process of growing up into full beings, requires that they learn these difficult things for themselves.
Thus, as a mother, it isn't your job to hover over in concern now that they are adults, or to try to help them with every difficulty. They are well equipped to take charge of their lives! It is time to let them go. Your role as the mother is done; it is time for you to step into a new role.
Again, this doesn't mean you don't love them or see them; you will always be their mother. It just means you energetically give them space, and recognize that the immediate mother role is done for you. That's a passage of your life, and that passage is complete. You are ready to move into a new stage of yourself.
Here is the second idea; this idea that Lady Luck is going to shift things for you. There isn't luck. There is only intention with action; listening to Divine guidance, and following that guidance directly. If you want things to change, you will have to begin to become clear on what you would like to create, you will need to ask the Universe for clear guidance on what your Highest Possibility is, and then you will need to move in that direction. It is here that you will begin to see shift and change. To understand this process more easily, I would suggest my course Manifest Miracles or Be a Divine Conduit. Both of these will help you connect into guidance more easily.
To wait passively for luck; this is a way of deciding not to be fully in your life. At 54, you are much too young to stop living, dreaming, moving toward your dreams. It is a transition to have your children grow up, and it is normal in midlife to review your life and have normal regrets and sadness. But it is also a time to realize there are many years again, and these years can be filled with connection, expansion and love.
First of all, thank you for doing your show. I look forward to it it every week and love your balanced approach!! I'd call in to the show, but I'm working at that time.
I am extremely concerned about my 9 year old daughter. She's a brilliant, loving, sensitive little girl, however, her other side is alarming.....abusive, hurtful and angry.......extremely inflexible. She's been diagnosed with a learning disability, but it is agreed that something else is going on with her. It's been a struggle since she was an infant.
Do you have any insight to offer. We want to help her, but she shuts everyone out if its not what she likes hearing.
Mental illness runs in my family and I feel she's a victim of it. It's tearing our family apart......any advice would be greatly appreciated!
God bless......thank you for your calm demeanor, balanced outlook and positive messages!
What I am sensing about your daughter is that she is responding to a lot of chaos, over busyness, stress: life is just too fast, too noisy, and too full of conflict and demands for her to handle.
Kids with learning disabilities can have a rough time with regular life. Especially girls, who deal with learning disabilities differently.
I'd like to suggest that a) you not jump to put a label of mental illness on her. This is worth exploring, if your daughter's pediatrician suggests that. Go in, have some more tests... but don't jump to conclusions unless there's a definitive result.
I'd like to suggest you look at the energy and vibration of your household, the home life, your relationship with any partner, your energy, your daughter's school, if there's any possibility she's been or is being abused, if there's abuse in your family (as well as mental illness). Is there a background of violence? What foods does your daughter eat? Is is a lot of chemicals? Have you had her tested for food allergies... What is her school like? Lots of kids, or a calm mellow place? How much screen time does she have? What kind of screen time is on in the house? And so on.
If your daughter is a Highly Sensitive Person, an introvert, empath, an intuitive... she's going to struggle with the busyness of everyday life at a much higher level than a kid who's extroverted and happy-go-lucky.
Don't be too quick to say "something is wrong with her." It may be, she's completely fine being Who She Is, and she's picking up on the chaos around her, and it's just too much.
From a paranormal perspective: she doesn't have spirits inhabiting her, she's not possessed, etc.
She's just overwhelmed with life, she feels very chaotic and having a hard time settling and self soothing. She has too much stimulation, and doesn't have the ability to get clear of that.
It's a lot to look at... my suggestion is a) get her tested further and b) look deeply at al the other things that are going on in your and her life... the energy is chaotic, and that doesn't work for sensitive kids.
Hi Sara, I've recently come across your blog and am hoping you would take the time to answer my questions.
How can I create the work and relationship I want? I seem to have a lot of fear and get stuck in routines. I no I'm learning to let go of feelings of powerlessness and realize my power to create and yet I keep going around in circles, help?
Will I ever attract in the special someone. I no I don't need him but life would sure be more fun with someone to share with. I also no my purpose is to find a way to help others that's fulfilling to me.
Healing is what im attracted to any guidance or advice for me as regards anything you might see for me in the future around working in this field? Or a particular area for me? Thank you. Kind regards - Cara
Thanks for writing. One of the first things I notice is that you're using "no" instead of "know". This might on the surface seem a small thing, a spelling thing or a way of texting faster.
But to the Universe... "no" means No. It's as if you're saying "I want this" but your heart is saying "no I don't." When your intention and your heart are not in allignment, the Universe just goes into a stalled, stuck pattern, until you can get clear.
Cara, what you need most is a way to hear your own heart. We are taught in school things like math and geography. But we're not taught how to listen to what we feel, how to sense what we already know, how to understand ourselves as true Divine souls in human container.
I'd suggest that you begin a spiritual practice. It isn't an easy path, especially at the beginning. It is hard to look at ourselves in the true light. But this soul inquiry changes everything.
You might like my course Understand that You Are Enough as a great starting point.
Go really, really deep with yourself, and find out who you truly are. Again: this isn't easy work. It can be painful, and bring up a lot of "stuff." Over time, you will begin to become aware and you will see things differently.
Hi Sara, I am hoping you can help me. I have seen and talked to spirits since I was very young. I will usually get a message of a coming birth or death in our family ahead of time. I've never been afraid of this gift and I'm still not.
Recently my oldest sister died and shortly afterwards I discovered that my dad(may he rest in peace), was not my birth father and that my actual birth grandmother passed away this year at age 96 on my wedding anniversary. I met her once as a child, not knowing who she was to me.
On the night I found out she had died, I started praying about what I should do with this information and for help finding my father because her obituary indicated he and both of my uncles preceded her in death. A call to the funeral home had us find out he is still alive. I'm 46 years old and my birth father never had any other children, but he did marry later in life and move away from his family.
The first night I was touched I was awake. Hands were put on my feet and a voice said "don't give up, don't stop looking for him" I went right to sleep. The next time I was touched I could feel my bed sink as if someone set beside me. I was fretful beforehand, but then I was touched on my foot again and eased into sleep.
Just about every night for months now I have prayed for guidance about my father. I did find him, but he lives very far away. Although I have pictures of us and we look exactly the same, because of my mom and the time that's passed, he's in denial. I have and will continue to write him and send him a card or something, and of course pray for guidance.
The more guidance I pray for the more frequent the touches or tugs on my feet come. I'm not scared, just never having been touched, it's different. Also, I can't see who is touching me. All of my other encounters I have seen and spoke to, usually at length.
My niece who is 7 now has also experienced this gift since birth. She is able to talk to loved ones who passed before her birth. She's recently been visited by a boy who frightened her. He won't say anything, just stands at her bed staring. She won't turn her lights off now. I'm the only one she is comfortable talking with about her experiences. I witnessed her first when she was an infant talking to her grandfather, my dad.
I don't know exactly what I'm asking you, but if you have words to offer, I'm grateful. Thank you in advance. - Karen
There is lot in your letter, so I will focus on what I think is the most important message for you to understand. Some people don't have much "veil" between this realm and the other dimensions of this multidimensional Universe. Some are born that way; some develop the skill through study; others experience a traumatic situation that opens the door for them.
For you, you've been born this way, and then it's expanded even further. As you reach to contact your birth father, the departed ancestors on that side to the family, his and your family, are able to make contact, to reach beyond the veil, to alert you that they would like you to continue this process of healing.
I would say: they are not really "touching" you in the way we do in human realm. Spirits can move energy to make things move, or to make the air feel different on your skin, and so forth. They are just trying to get your attention.
I would suggest you do some direct work with the spirit community, with my course Release Yourself from Family Karma. This will help you get to the root of some of the karmic issues, it will help move things toward more healing, and it will help these active spirits relax.
There is no danger here: it is all about love, on both this side of the veil on and on the Departed side; about wanting connection to be expanded and healed between birth daughter and father.
I have a daughter that is 7 now. However, ever since she has been able to talk she has talked to her sister and I about how she chose her dad and I to be her parents when she was in heaven with God. Or how she has been in second grade before.
Most recently her and I were snuggled up watching Tinker Bell's Secret of the Wings. At dinner that night I told her I enjoyed watching the movie with her. She said what movie? So I reminded her and she then said "oh I'm sorry Mom, my body was here but I was in heaven saying hi to Papa and God. Then when I came back the movie was over."
Is she a Angle in a human body? - Laura
Your daughter is a beautiful human soul who has the great fortune to remember who she really is. She remembers that she is a soul, and she remembers what her experience was like between her last past life, and this life.
So.. this is wonderful. You don't have to do anything, just love her and love your other daughter and just enjoy it.
An angel is a little different; that is a different kind of higher level entity that is not human. So, your daughter might seem like an angel to you and others, but she's really just a very blessed human.
You might like my book Your Psychic Child to help you understand her gifts.
I would like to first thank you for all of the work that you do. I have been listening to you on the radio and also your podcasts. I have also been studying with several of your online classes. Due to your work, I have found the courage to quit a job I really disliked and to start using my intuition to guide me to the best opportunities for my life. I have also begun the process of empowering myself and standing up to those who do not always agree with the decisions I feel led in my life to pursue.
I do have one question for you and I am hoping you can give me some guidance. I have been using your course Call in Your Beloved with Ease. I was surprised to see how much work I had to do in releasing and cutting the cords to past relationships and getting my energy clear. I spent awhile working on releasing my last relationship with my daughter’s father. I believe with this relationship, I had the most “karmic debt” to clear up. I also spent a great deal of time getting my intention clear regarding a new love relationship.
Recently I have been sensing that my “soulmate” is very near. I have been encountering a lot of synchronistic events regarding meeting him. I tried your exercise many times to “pre-see” my beloved and so far I have been unsuccessful. What I find very interesting is that I dream of him often. I can make out his stature and sense his energy, but I can only see the outline of his body, but never his face. I even dreamed of a picture that he and I were in as a family. I could clearly see myself, my daughter, and a young boy I have not yet met, but my “soulmates” face was invisible to me.
What I am wondering is if I am doing something to block my complete view of him, or if there is reason that the “universe” has not fully revealed him to me. Any guidance you can give me, would be appreciated. Thanks again for all of the great work that you do for the spiritual community. It does indeed change and touch lives—Lianna
First, thank you for all the kind words. I am so glad you find this work useful!
I have no doubt that your true partner is near; when you do the kind of inner work that you have been doing, you shift your vibration and that shift in vibration and your very clear intention makes it easy for things to happen. You're actively in Flow toward your soul mate.
What I would suggest, when you meditate on your soul mate and find yourself NOT seeing his face clearly, is to work on identifying his soul qualities.
Remember, your soul mate may arrive to you in a very, very different package than you expect. He may arrive from a different culture, background, etc. So... the face, the package, the clothing... it's not very important, is it?
Instead, work on recognizing this partner's soul in your meditation. You might think of this as the way you would sense a person in a dark room: you wouldn't be able to see this person, but you could fully sense them, and get a clear sense of them, of their presence.
In this same way, you will be able to sense the soul of this person you are soon to meet. And, as you practice recognizing the soul, you will be better able to recognize the soul, when you finally come face to face with this person in real life!
It's a beautiful thing, finding your true partner... so enjoy this process.
It is really a pleasure to read your comments about the clients posted to your website. It makes me to urge to contact you for seeking an answer.
What you said is true. Sometimes we will sense we are going to meet our soul mate soon and we will seek the path to meet them. I sensed he was there in my life soon last year during August 2014 and I tried to seek advice from an astrologer in my city. He asked me to do some rituals to make my love life flourish and I did. It really happens and it was amazing!
I met him through social media and we were happy chatting with each other for almost three months. We never meet and we tried to arrange for date and there is always block as we were busy with work. We always having intuitive communication and he can finished my sentence without I speak!
Unfortunately he suddenly distant without any last words and I was depressed. I tried to contact him few times but no answer at all till now. I tried to move on and meet and date other online friends but it seems not going well.
I really tired and I deserve for a happy love life and I confused why he distant. Please guide me here and your help are much appreciated! I really hope he can reconnect with me or I hope my love life is easy and can find my second soul mate again!
Thank you in advance— Confused Gemini Girl, Trista
You are right to think that you can sense when you will meet a soul mate; if we are aware and paying attention to everything, every little thing, we can easily know when a person who is important will arrive into our lives.
That said... there are three different kinds of soul mates. They all show up to help us learn our karmic or soul lessons in this lifetime.
The first type of soul mate is the person where karma is instantly resolved: you meet very quickly, your karma is resolved almost immediately, and you move on: you have no need to have any other reaction, because your karma is complete.
The second type of soul mate is the person you have active karma with, and you can't resolve it: you meet, you have a big feeling about them, and then you have a lot of attraction and triggers and stuff to work out: some of it good, some of it bad. However, over time, you realize that it's not going to work out in this lifetime. At that point, you can either stay with them in fear of change, or you can leave and see what else life has in store for you.
The third type of soul mate, the true partner, is the person you work on karmic lessons with over time: you meet, you have a big feeling about them, and then you have a lot of attraction and triggers ands tuff to work out... and you WORK IT OUT. This soul and your soul have the ability to learn and resolve karmic lessons over time. It might not be easy at every moment, but there is cooperation and a commitment to learning together. This is the soul mate you can be in a long term relationship or marriage with.
The soul mate you encountered, Trista, was the second type. One of the biggest warning signs or red flags that a soul mate connection is not going to work out, is if it starts and continues as a distance relationship.
By distance, it could mean you live far away. But it could also be that the relationship is mostly by text or email or phone or social media; never in person. Distance and electronic relationships aren't real relationships. They're just distractions, a kind of addiction.
In order to have a real, tantric, involved, true soul mate relationship with someone, you're going to need to have a lot of face and body time with that person. In person, many many many times. Getting to know the person, not the front or facade of the person.
If you want the third type of soul mate relationship, the true partner, you're going to need to get very clear on who you are, what you will and won't accept. And you're going to have to keep rejecting lesser soul matings, until the Universe knows you are serious about meeting a person who is a true match to you: a person who will step up and commit to all of you: the good, the bad, the in progress.
You might like my audio course Call in Your Beloved with Ease for some help working through this.
It's absolutely possible to have a true partnership, but it will take some work, boundaries and a whole lot of self love.
I was laid off last May from my job of 12 years. I was happy beyond belief. I hated my job with a passion and only stayed because I couldn't find anything else. My plan was to explore my writing but now I'm having doubts. I'm of two minds: to write and to do work in the human resources field.
I want to be creative but I also want a steady paycheck as I have a family. Now I just feel stuck. Should I pursue work in just one area or both? Thanks - D.T. In Ontario, Canada
Whenever big events happen, such as being fired, laid off, having an illness, etc... these things that disrupt one course and nudge us gently on another course, you can trust that the Universe is busy at work on your behalf.
The Universe follows the longings of your heart... and in this case, it did so easily. Even though you stayed "because you couldn't find anything else", it feels like the real reason you stayed was because of fear.
You were afraid that if you started your true path... what would happened if you failed? What would happen if given the opportunity, you couldn't make your dreams work? What would happen if you in charge of yourself, messed up?
So... you might fail, you might succeed, you might do a bit of all of it. When you look at the great creators in our society, the ones who really create an impressive body of work, you only see the highlights, the successes. I can assure you, these same people had a HUGE number of failures and setbacks.
The only difference was they keep going. They had the tenacity to follow their vision. To live vision-led, in full Flow of the Universe.
Right now, you have some time to do some deep soul inquiry, on what you really, really want. I would highly suggest you take my course Manifest Miracles. Working through this course will help you understand how the energy of the Universe works, and how you can live a life where you begin to live from one Flow experience to the next, no stickiness or stuckness required.
I would suggest you don't try to make a decision on your path yet. That would be jumping into something before you really know your heart. Instead, use the next months to do soul inquiry.
The best things, the most clarity, the biggest revelations happen when we give ourselves space and time without distractions.
Tell Me Sara
Where doth the crystal wind blow that I may recharge my soul
In my youth the sails of my heart traveled upon mystic seas
There below swam the dolphins in telepathic harmony
No harm, only love, pure sweet love
To the shores of a distant land I traveled.
Met by a tribe of light beings, glistening in the rainbow sun
I was once visited by an ascended master
White hair, staff, robe and all aglow
I lie in slumber and awoke to gaze upon such a one.
No words were spoken.
I in a human body
He in the ethers of another dimension
I lay myself to sleep intending to astrally project
He came instead
I am a seeker, looking for her tribe,
Tell me Sara

Thank you for sharing this heart-opening poem.
I cannot map your journey this lifetime; no one can. Your life is like a string of pearls, a strand of experiences that are there for you to be in, and to experience as fully as you are able at the time.
Over time, as you well know, your ability to experience fully expands!
We may have paths that appear to be our purpose: teacher, mentor and so forth for you, for example. But these are just labels. Your real purpose is to show up, and to learn what happens as each lesson, each experience of life unfolds.
You don't have to work your business harder, or travel to India, or write a book, or do you life's work, or know your life's calling, or whatever it is that people often talk about when they talk about purpose.
Your purpose is your presence. That's all that's required.
You might find my course How to Hear What the Universe is Saying useful.
Recently, I reconnected with an old boyfriend "Jake" from high school. We went out for a year and then he started dating another girl back then.
He's still lives in the same area as me, and he suggested that we meet for lunch when he was in town, so we could catch up on old times. I went to the lunch and it was awkward; he kept saying things like he'd never leave his wife (I am also married) but also that we had "history" together, and why did we even breakup anyway? I left the lunch pretty confused.
Now, he's emailing me and calling me all the time, and wants to see me again. I admit my thoughts are going to him over and over, it's like something has opened up again. My marriage has been unhappy for a long time, but we have children (a boy 8, a girl 6).
I am wondering if Jake is my soul mate? Or maybe we are twin flames or have some kind of past life together? Thank you in advance for your response.--S.J.
I appreciate your writing about old flame romance, because it's a very important topic, and one that requires clear understanding of karma, soul mates and past lives.
Firstly, I don't use the term twin flames. That term implies there is only one person for us on this planet, and that isn't true: there are many soul mates who will show up in our lifetimes, either as family, friends, partners or romantic partners.
Most of us will have a few romantic partners in this lifetime that would qualify as "soul mates" in the romantic sense: people we are vulnerable and physical intimate with, who we are loyal (monogamous) with, and who we have a sense of understanding that we don't have with other people.
That said, I don't think Jake fits this bill for you. In fact, it sounds like Jake has some serious issues of wanting to possess you—surely you can see these red flags?
It's pretty clear you and Jake have some karma to work out: karma being defined as "soul lessons learned over time". There are lessons which are showing up for you. Some of these might be: distraction, control, possession, manipulation, playing with others feelings, lack of responsibility to solving your own problems, hoping to be saved by the "prince" or the "white knight".
If you are unhappy in your marriage, that is what it is: you might work it out with your husband, or you might not. It is certainly worth trying, with children involved.
But don't let arrival of Jake be a distraction for you. He doesn't have the answer you seek.
In almost every case, old flames die out. Even a momentary rekindling doesn't last.
This is because the initial karmic crossing that happened between you is done: it's complete. That's why you broke up long ago. The karmic crossing is complete, and you don't need to do more work around it.
It can get confusing, because when we connect with someone from the past, we return to ourselves in the past: we go back and experience all the things we were going through back then. Take a look at who you were back then in high school, as compared to now. There may be some information for you there: about what parts of you were open and flowing back then, that have become shut down now.
The "rekindling an old flame problem" is super common, especially with social media. In general, and by this I mean almost 100% of the time!, and old flame is just an old romance... it's over the past, and we are not meant to live in the past.
Move forward, KJ. Let go of this old flame (and certainly set boundaries so he can't stalk you like he is!). Figure out if your relationship with your husband can work, or not. Don't hide in the fantasy of the past or try to cling to an old idea (Jake) that has run it's course.
Go forward, with who you want to be now.
For help with this, I suggest my course Heal Your Love & Relationship Karma.
I was wondering if you would take a look at this photo and give me your interpretation. I will give you a little background on it.
This past weekend we were on a weekend trip with our very dear friends to a nearby lake. We took about a 2--3 hour boat ride to a favorite spot that we have lovingly named in memory of our dear friend who died from cancer three years ago. Two years ago were in the same spot toasting him, as we were this past weekend. We started our big bon fire and then one of the guys gave the "toast" basically saying the only thing that could make the evening better was if he were here.
We then took a picture with an iphone silhouetting the two guys with the fire before them. What showed up on the picture was not visible to the naked eye. What we saw were beams of light from the sky casting down on a red circle with several white objects in the circle.
This could be some photography trick with the light from the flames, etc. But, our mouths dropped as we saw it and immediately interpreted it to be some sort of spirits there. We are all four religious people and I think in our hearts it gave us a lot of peace to think it might be some sort of sign from our friend. I immediately thought that I wanted some sort of "professional" to view the picture and just get an objective opinion, then I thought of you. (Also, we retook the picture about five minutes later, and that was no longer visible.)
I contacted you originally a couple years ago when my mother passed away and was interested in a spiritual course. I never did enroll in the course, but I still receive your emails on a regular basis.Thank you—G.
Thank you for sharing this beautiful photo. The spirit world, especially when the spirits are our beloved family and friends, works very hard to let us know that they are doing fine in their new reality.
This orb or light circle, showing up in the timing you described, is an absolute clear sign of your friend's love for you and his desire to communicate with all of you from beyond the veil.
We think of these instances as miracles, but in reality, the "veil" between this world and the realm of the Divine and the realm of the departed is, very thin.
All we have to do, is become open to the idea. I'm so glad you had this experience, and the comfort, love and healing that came with it.
For people interested in learning more about the ways we can cross the veil, my course Be a Divine Conduit for Guides & Angels can help.
I know it's a long shot, but is there any chance you could tell me the father of my child, if not a name, thing I could Identify him with, my date of birth is 1984 and my 5 year old date of birth is 2008, thanks in advance and look forward 2 hearing back from u xx samantha
That’s not a question I'll answer in the way you’re hoping for.
That's because it's a question YOU will benefit from exploring, with full commitment and involvement—it doesn't serve you to ask me, without doing your own work.
We have to do our own personal growth work, in order for our lives to be meaningful; discovering the identity of your son's father is one of those deep, karmic lessons that you will benefit hugely from exploring.
This information will also be VITALLY important for your son. It interests me that the word vitally came up—as it important to life, important to the life force. Your son will need this information, whether or not he every knows or has a relationship with his father. He just needs to know.
It feels that it would be of great benefit for you to seek to learn who the father is, not only for your own healing and for learning any karmic lessons that have come from this union, but so that your child may know who is father is; this will be vital to your child’s development, no matter what kind of “father” his father is.
I found your article while looking for answers to support my 14 year old son. Recently he started saying that he is worried about his 11 year old sister because he thinks she will not live long. He says he cannot 'see' her as an adult and doesn't feel her presence in the future.
I was shocked but tried to remain calm and hear him out. Apparently, he mostly senses this for people he is close to. He says I am going to live longer than my husband. Anyway, he was trying to explain the feeling but could not. He said the thought/sense just comes into his mind when he thinks very hard about someone. Now he says he needs to do something to protect his sister.
I spoke to my husband who is also very spiritual and a reiki healer (although he is not practising). He said our son is probably hyping himself up because he watches too many tv series with this sort of thing.
However we agreed to keep an eye on it and listen whenever he needs to talk.
Strangely, we lost our dog 2 years ago after it was strangled by a python. Our son had been worried the dog would be attacked by a snake. He started taking pictures of the dog in case this happened. When it did happen, we called the kids to tell them but our son said the words before. He broke down and kept saying..'I knew it'
How do we support him. Please help. Regards—Anna
The early teens can be a challenging time for boys. I do believe your son is intuitive; however, his intuitive gifts do not mean that he doesn't have to face the normal growth of any teenage—it's a complicated, sometimes painful to journey these years from 14 to the early 20s.
Thus, even though you may be impressed by his intuitive gifts, it's important to understand that more than anything, he needs you as strong, practical parents.
He needs you to lead him, not him to lead you.
What I have found in working with teens, especially creative and intuitive teens, is that they may be quite gifted intuitively, but may be lacking the emotional experience and depth that allows them to see the big picture. This is not about maturity—it's just the process for all teens.
I think your husband is on the right track: I would begin by limiting TV, internet, games, and really monitoring what your son is looking at. Remember: every screen (phone, internet, pad, all of it) is a portal in which energy and entities can reach us. TV, books like Twilight or other dark zombie, vampire style books, most games for teen boys... all are extreme portals of violence, dark energy, confusion... if your son has a lot of exposure to this, he is definitely being affected.
As a strong parent, you will really help him if you limit this exposure.
I'd start there, and see how his mood relaxes when he is free from these addictive, dark sources. Just because it's mainstream, doesn't mean it's healthy!
I would also suggest that your son has a visit or two with a regular therapist (a teen psychologist, not a psychic, intuitive or energy healer) who is not taken aback by the idea that he has intuitive gifts; it may take a little searching to find the right person. Your son's concern for his sister may stem from deeper worries, that he may need help processing.
It is almost always deeply useful for any teen to see a therapist from time to time—the adolescent years are complex, and there's always something to process.
Can I get a little reading? I live in the Caribbean, on the tiny island of St. Maarten to be exact. I have no clue what to do with my life. It's like I have no purpose and it makes my life so meaningless. I'm a breast cancer survivor and worry a lot about my son who is still pretty young (15). Will he be ok? And can I get a little feedback what to do with my life? I thank you so much and hope you can honor my request.
My name is Carmen and I was born in 1955. — Carmen
It can be hard to live in a place such as the Carribbean where life can be fairly low-key; it can be hard to have external ambition when the environment is so easy.
I would suggest that in order for your son to grow and mature, it would benefit him to spend time in a different locale. This does not have to be now, but as he enters young adult hood.
As for you... I think you need to ask yourself what you would like to create in this life, and then do it.
Don't let the precious gift of this lifetime just pass by.
Only you can decide what brings meaning to your life–and learning to discover this is part of your spiritual path.
The question for you to look at is: why are you in a place of complacency? What makes you not curious, or not willing to risk more, or try more? What parts in your belief system aren't letting you move forward?
You might look at my course, Moving from Stuck to Flow and see if that brings up some answers.
I so wish I could find my place in things..in my work. I want to feel like I am contributing & adding value. Trying to formulate a new business around coaching(visual graphics) but I have been running into boulders.Are things going to finally open up & move? Thanks—Stevi
It feels to me like your vision is not quite clear, and that's why you're having some trouble manifesting what it is that you truly desire. It feels like you're following other people's vision, or the popular vision of how to do things, and you have not quite stepped into your purpose.
Spend some time asking for Divine guidance to help you with this process. Stop leading from mind/ego/personality, and let the Universe to lead you. It's clear you've done a lot of self education, a lot of effort... but it doesn't quite yet feel like you,
I'd suggest my course Manifest Miracles to walk you through the process.
First I would love a group blessing for my aunt Mary. She is widowed, in her 80's, and has lost 4 close family members in the past month...not sure if she can make it through this. Please blessings, blessings to my sweet aunt...Thank you.
Second I would love to see what other guidance I can give to my cousin who has just realized her gift, which came on instantly and VERY powerful. I have created webpages for her and have explained many things to her I discovered on my path. She is scared and she is blocking instead of receiving. How else can I help her?
Thank you Sara—Kellee
Thank you for writing. I have the sense that your aunt is learning and preparing for her own eventual transition as these other family members pass to the other side; it's not about grieving so much for her, as it is about the wonder of what it will be like, when it is her time to go to the other side.
When people have near death experiences, or experience illness where they face mortality, they come to some very interesting conclusions about death: mostly, that it is the body that dies, never the soul.
It feels like your aunt is beginning to reach these same conclusions, and that she has quite a bit more contact with the relatives that passed, than she will ever share with you.
As for your cousin... there is really nothing that you can do that will "help" here with her gifts. This is a path she must walk for herself.
I would suggest that you release the need to help her, and just trust that she must access these abilities and step into her gift in her own time—providing webpages and more is actually slowing her down.
She must do it on her own.
It would be better for you to concentrate on your own intuitive skills and develop those further, than to try to help her at this time! Your own skills are there; you just need to believe you have them, and they will develop further.
As always, lots of great resources with my low-cost self-study courses.
I have been on a spiritual journey for the past two years, during which I have been working on letting go of the past, healing wounds and ultimately achieving a sense of inner peace. It hasn't been easy but I have progressed a great deal,especially with regards working on my life's purpose. My spirituality has become ever -increasingly important and have begun to move down an energy healing path also.
My biggest issue so far has been integrating these higher aspects of myself in daily life, for example remaining focused and confident when faced with trying new things such as continuing with my education and worrying about money (I grew up in a dysfunctional family which had its fair share of financial woes due to irresponsible adult behaviour which is something I haven't quite managed to let go of.)
Like many people I worry a great deal about making the right decisions and stepping into the unknown,change while a necessity can bring up great anxiety!
I suppose overall I'm wondering if I'm going in the right direction and what else I can do to ease the anxiety and maintain a sense of calm when faced with choices?
Many thanks for sharing your light with everyone—Gem, England
Thank you for writing. The questions you bring up are the sign of a conscious person trying to live a conscious life... I commend you for having reached this place of understanding!
Now that you're here: awake and aware in the world, the daily challenge is to lead with the Divine self, or to let the Divine lead... to let the Soul self lead instead of the lower, younger, less evolved human self.
Anxiety comes in as when you sense the tension between the two: you know there is a Divine way, or a way to live with the Divine leading. And yet much of the world seems to be very human indeed... and it's hard to bridge those two realities.
For you, I'd suggest deepening your practice... deepening your connection to your guides, your intuition, and using this as the basis for making all decisions. I suggest my course Opening to Your Guides & Angels.
Whenever you feel yourself getting to that stressed, anxious, buzzy place... just go in and connect with the Divine, in a very intentional way. This might mean you are "entering in" several times a day.
This seems a lot, but it's about what's needed to maintain consciousness in this human world.
So... in a nutshell, for right now... build into your day these moments of direct connection with the Divine. No matter how busy you are, these moments of direct connection will be the most important parts of what you are doing.
After a while, when you are "entering in" to this space three, four times a day... you will begin to notice that your understanding has shifted and deepened even more. At this stage, you will find yourself existing often in joy, bliss and love. You will begin to see the change in your life.
I have lived in my home for over 30 years. It has been my little heaven on earth. Five years ago my husband passed away with no means to keep our home which has led to foreclosure proceedings. I have been struggling with everything in my being to keep our home. Do you think I will be able to keep it, or should I just let it go and move on? Sincerely, Deanna
I am so sorry to hear of all your struggles. This is very hard. Sometimes we choose change, such as choosing to be divorced, leave a home, sell a home relocate and so forth.
But you didn't choose to make changes, and yet changes came anyway.
This is the nature of our human experience: change always happens. We can't prevent it any more than we can prevent growing older every day, or eventually, one day, dying and moving on to the next life.
I sense that in your struggle to save the home, you've put off some grieving. As if, if you can save the home, you will also save the relationship with your husband, and bring him back.
It feels like now is a good time to look at this, perhaps with the help of a counselor, and realize that even if you let the home go, you will still have the relationship with your husband—the departed are always with us.
It feels like it would make your life much less stressful to let the home go and move into a place where you can begin the next stage of our life, with less financial pressure.
None of this is easy. But understand that in letting the house go, you don't let go of your love for your husband. That's always with you.
You might find my book The Four Passages of the Heart a comfort to you at this time.
About 2 years ago I went for an intuitive reading. I had a few minutes left and for fun I asked if she saw any children for me & my husband. Much to my surprise the answer was yes! I have never had a strong desire to have children and figured it just wasn't a spiritual focus for me in this lifetime.
Out of curiosity I decided to get a second intuitive reading from another person. This person told me exactly the same information, gender, time frame ect. I continued to get a few more reading over the next few years and sometimes children would come up even without me asking!
One day my mother in-law even called stating she had a reading and a baby was on the way for us! The miracle is that due to all of these readings my husband and I decided that we did want children and actually began trying.
To end a long story we have never conceived and the time frame has come and gone. We have stopped trying, the process began to be painfully disappointing. I'm 43, my husband is 46. I am so confused why so many people saw children for us?
Do you think any circumstances in my life have altered this path since perhaps it is not in my best interest?
Much love and light—Heather
Baby spirits flit and fly around people all the time. When this happens, it means that a baby spirit is checking out the possibility of coming in—the new soul is making a decision about whether or not to spend some time with you on this earth.
However... just because readers, mothers in laws and so forth, see baby spirits... and even if you and your husband see baby spirits, or start "trying", that doesn't mean a baby spirit will come in.
It feels like you and your husband are not clear on your heart's desire, of if you want a child, or children.. or not.
There is no right decision.. it's a personal decision you may make together, or separately.
And then, when you are very clear on what you, he and you both decide, move forward with your intention.
If you desire children, there are many ways to go forward. If you don't want children, there are ways to do that. If you're not sure... that's a decision too.
The idea is.... know what's in your own heart, your husband's heart, and your "couple" heart.
And move forward with that clarity.
It's your life. Determine for yourself what you want to do.
Thank you for offering to give a free reading to your audience. I would love to call you on your radio show, but I live in the UK so it might prove a little difficult. I hope you can find time to tell me what you make of my query on your blog.
I'm afraid it's not a very original question: I want to know if I'm with the right man or not.
Briefly, we have been together over 12 years, and have two children together. Last year I was very unhappy, and developed feelings for someone else. I realise now that that was a distraction / escape / fantasy from sorting out my real life relationship, and I'm no longer in contact with the other person. My partner and I split up, got back together, and have probably talked more in the last few months than we have done in years.
I'm very aware of what a good person my partner is, of all his fantastic qualities, and of how many other people would love to have what I have. However, I can't shake the nagging feeling that I'm not with my "soulmate". I am halfway through your "Manifest Miracles " course, and in the "Affirm with Heart" meditation this thought came through very strongly for me. My friends tell me to think back to when we first fell in love - but for me that never happened. I was in my twenties, not looking for anything serious, we met, had good times together ... and here we are now. I never thought "this is the one for me". If I'm honest I've always felt that there has been something missing on a deeper level.
However, I'm also aware that we have a good, stable, functioning relationship, and we are bringing up two children together. Day-to-day, it works!
So my question is: is wanting to experience a deep, soulmate connection with someone just a teenage fantasy I need to let go of? Am I simply having a mid-life crisis, and need to get real and grow up? I don't want to sacrifice my children's happiness for my own; but I don't want to spend the rest of my life wondering "what if.....?".
Any insights into my situation would be really welcome right now....Thanks—Lena
Thank you for writing. I'd like to suggest that you ARE having what we used to call a mid-life crisis... and what we might now call the Getting Ready to Expand stage.
It's pretty common to enter this stage in the late thirties and early 40s... when you're deeply in marriage/family/domestic life, and often so very busy that life seems to be just one chore after another.
It's very easy to lose romance and feelings of love in your marriage, at this time.
That's when this creeping feeling of "I need my soul mate" tends to show up, and people start having affairs and getting divorced and so on.... again, very common in this state or passage of life, for both women and men.
So.. recognize you're in this passage... that's the first thing.
Next, you're going to want to do a lot of self exploration that has nothing to do with your husband—you're going to want to explore who YOU are outside of wife and mom, what YOU want to accomplish in your life. Often, this is where the real issue is.
This might take a year. It might take two years. It might take three. This process of discernment... of taking the focus of "the relationship is boring" or "my husband isn't my soul mate" can be exactly what you need when a marriage is basically solid, but perhaps lacking emotional depth.
I'd suggest my course Manifest Miracles to help you know what your heart really wants.
My name is Raymond from Indonesia. I have suffered many hard problems like depression and anxious problem. Many people insult me and look down to me. I always fail to achieve something and become low-esteem for myself. I wish to become actor and recover from this fail. Many people says this is impossible but i'm still in faith of God. Please show me, can i achieve my hopes and wishes? Thank you Sara. —Raymond
You did not say how old you are, but I have the sense that you are in the stage of younger adulthood, where you are still learning how you are, and what your life's path is.
It's good to walk the path of being actor, and to follow your dreams. I encourage you to keep going!
I believe that you will be able to create a life where you work in your chosen field; however, you may find yourself not as an actor, but doing some of the other amazing jobs that make acting possible. Allow yourself to open to that additional possibility—that you will love working in a position that is in the acting field, but may (or may not) be actual acting.
The other part of this, is that is is absolutely possible to shift your feelings of low self worth, let go of those Misbeliefs, and access the part of your personality that is Divine, calm, confident and connected—and to begin to live from this part of your being, your true self. Make this your priority!
Take a listen to my FREE podcasts; they will help.
Hi Sara! I'm in a complicated situation with my love life. I am so sure this man is supposed to be the one I am supposed to be with but it's complicated... Very complicated! I keep getting mixed signals and not sure how to proceed... Any spirit advice would be much appreciated!
Much Love and light—Jenn
Thank you for writing. There are many times we have karmic crossings with others who are our soul mates. However... just because a person is your soul mate, does not mean you will go forward with this person in our lives.
Love that works, sustains and grows isn't complicated.
Love that works, sustains and grows is really simple. It feels like safety, expansion, you being your true self, feeling relaxed.
It feels like home.
You may be a soul mate with this man... but it does not feel that it is a relationship that will go forward. Complication, mixed signals... and above all, not being available or not being emotionally available are all signs that this is not the love that you will go forward with.
Love that goes forward is simple, relaxed, easy.
I hope you're well! We emailed a while ago when I leased a little house that I was nervous about and I'm happy to say it's been lovely. I've been working through two of your courses on Daily OM - A Year of Spiritual Awakening and Become a Spiritual Psychic in 28 Days. I've also started learning about crystals - fun and pretty!
So here's what's happening. Whenever I read, hear about or see people experiencing pain, I have this uncomfortably strong sensation - kind of a tingling and a super-strong feeling of empathy. I've resolved this by not reading or watching materials that have violence, etc but even hearing friends & family describe painful experiences causes this.
Is this some sort of spiritual/empathic phase? Is there anything to be done about it? Best to you—Jana
The gift of an empathic heart is one of the most beautiful gifts a person can have. However, until you know how to work with it correctly, it can cause some distress and even pain to you.
I do think it is important to limit viewing or experiencing reading materials, movies, etc that are violent or low vibration. Remember: everything is a portal. Books, movies, internet, even phones are all portals to other energetic dimensions; understand and respect this.
Also remember, whatever you see or put in your mind and heart is the same as experiencing this. There is a part in The 33 Lessons that talks about this specifically. Limiting exposure to darkness is one way to guard your heart.
But there is another way, that requires that you take off all heart's armor, and simply allow yourself to feel it all, and holding state of compassion (for the other, for yourself) in your heart. Blasting forth into full compassion, and allow this vibration.... compassion instead of pain... to be how you experience another's pain.
There is a lot of information in my book The Four Passages of the Heart.
Keep opening. Don't worry about guarding or shielding or protecting... just open up from pain into compassion into connection into love.
How do I find out what I was created for/what I am suppose to do while I am here on Earth?
My job is boring and unfulfilling. I know that I can do anything I set my mind to however, if I pursue what my purpose is, not only will I be fulfilled but will live abundantly doing it. I've tried different avenues that have all resulted in the same: bored and unfulfilled. I thought I was being led, but I clearly wasn't.
I ordered your book, Become Your Best Self with the hopes of finding avenues to fulfillment. I want/desire crystal clear direction. I want to feel joy, excitement, and fulfillment again. I want to get up everyday knowing that what I do matters and that someone is better for it. — Aurora
I choose this image above because it reflects so deeply the kind of energy and meaning you are searching for.
Here is the thing.... it's your life. If you choose to remain in the paradigm that you are "bored and unfulfilled" that's probably exactly how your life will be.
Instead, you must simply put all preconceived notions down and the side of the path, and step on the path and begin in a state of wonder.
There is no crystal clear direction.
Life is mystery, and it is a miracle.
We are here for the purpose of soul growth... and all soul growth happens through the human heart.
There are so many helpers and guides waiting to give you a hand!
But until that can happen, I think you may need to drop your mantra of "bored and unfulfilling" and perhaps look at the lower vibration feelings that are really there. These are commonly things like pain, heartbreak, wounds, low self worth, past abuse, etc.
This is where we all start the journey.
Begin to work with whatever you see as needing the most clearing. Then clear the next. Then the next.
I would suggest you work with my course Manifest Miracles, as this will show you a way to get out of your mind and into your heart, to create what you really want.
Revisit the image above. All is possible in this lifetime; every experience is there to open your heart, and remind you our our true nature as soul. This is your true path... to discover your own self as soul.
