It’s time to unveil our FOCUS FOR THE MONTH.
You are never alone. There are forces at play working for your highest good at all times.
Do you believe this? It’s true. How can you invite more angels into your life? How can you spot the messengers on your path? How do you know when you’re being guided?
I’m thrilled to share one of my most revealing, vulnerable posts ever, plus our theme for July.
The theme for JULY is: Angels, Guides + Messengers.
A few days ago I was working with a therapist who is helping me gain new perspective over the death of my younger sister Julie.
We’ve been focusing on a traumatic scene from my childhood: the day Julie died at 12 years old from brain cancer in a hospital room in Florida.
I have many jumbled emotions from this time in my life. As a 16-year-old girl, I was so not emotionally equipped to handle illness and death. No one in my life was. Going through that experience was awful.
So the day that Julie was dying in that Florida hospital room was a day that I was hungover from going out the night before to try to drink away the reality of my sister’s prognosis. I wanted to numb my pain. I wanted to rewrite the shitty story.
Chapter 3 of my book “Get Gutsy” details this day that changed everything for me and my path (you can grab this chapter for free here), and writing my book was hugely healing for me around this traumatic experience.
But as I’ve learned since, it’s very difficult to completely release traumatic memories and their effect on just about every area of your life.
So I’ve been working with this therapist (she specializes in a form of therapy called EMDR), and the results have been profound.
And on this day a few days ago, I visualized that hospital room scene and saw something magical and other worldly: a team of light-filled angels floating over my sister’s hospital bed. They were helping her frail body sit up so she could put her hands together and pray while her Last Rites were being given to her by the hospital priest.
Then these angelic beings called forth her Spirit into another dimension. Julie’s angels assured her that she was safe to cross the veil into the other side. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and holy.
What a vision! As I saw that scene and worked through the visual with my therapist, my body instantly felt lighter, less tethered to the trauma of my sister’s illness and subsequent death.
I understood what happened on a soul level, and that Julie was safe and cared for even as her family was in deep shock and grief.
I cried, released and recommitted to the leader I’m here to be.
This isn’t the first time I’ve experienced angels, messengers and guides in my life.
And I feel the same can be said for you.
According to good ol’ Wikipedia, here’s the definition of angels:
An angel is a supernatural being or spirit found in various religions and mythologies. In Abrahamic religions and Zoroastrianism, angels are often depicted as benevolent celestial beings who act as intermediaries between God or Heaven and Earth, or as guardian spirits or a guiding influence. Other roles of angels include protecting and guiding human beings, and carrying out God’s tasks. The term “angel” has also been expanded to various notions of spirits found in many other religious traditions. The theological study of angels is known as “angelology”.
You may be a bit surprised to see me talking about ANGELS when you know me talking about business concepts and marketing know-how and all that good stuff. Know this: I’ll still be teaching on those concepts because they are awesome.
And … I’m excited to be moving into some new territory to help you connect with your spiritual world. Because the spiritual world is where it’s at.
So as I was conceiving of the FOCUS for July for our tribe, this theme presented itself to me: ANGELS, GUIDES + MESSENGERS.
You ready to call in divine support?
It’s the most powerful form of support in the world.
Some ideas for you for bringing our JULY FOCUS to life …
Ask for help from your spirit guides.
Use guided visualization (here’s a free one from me to you).
Create an altar in your home with crystals, spiritual statues and candles.
Spend time in nature.
Notice everyone who comes into your life and the messages they share with you about your work, your health, your family, your path, everything.
Open your eyes. Look at the signs around you. Literally look at signs (billboards, street signs, magazine articles). Just this week I saw a homemade sign on the side of the road when driving my kids to camp that said “Slow Down.” I exhaled, and went slower.
“Simply thinking of your deceased loved ones whenever you want to feel them around will draw their energy near. They can hear our thoughts and will do everything in their power to give you the signs that you need to know for sure that they are well and around. All you have to do is be still enough to see.” – Psychic Medium Bill Philipps
