Setting your priorities straight....


Saw this awhile ago, it made an impact on me.  I hope you find value in this as well.  Too often our priorities are all messed up.
When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 Beers.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him.

When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls.

He then asked the students if the jar was full.  They agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.

The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.   He then asked the students again if the jar was full.   They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar.  Of course, the sand filled up everything else.   He asked once more if the jar was full..  The students responded with a unanimous 'yes.'

The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.

The students laughed..  'Now,' said the professor as the laughter subsided, 'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.

The golf balls are the important things---your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions---and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car..  The sand is everything else---the small stuff.

'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls.

The same goes for life.  If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.  Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

Spend time with your children.

Spend time with your parents.

Visit with grandparents.

Take your spouse out to dinner.

Play another 18.

There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.  Take care of the golf balls first---the things that really matter.   Set your priorities.  The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented.  The professor smiled and said, 'I'm glad you asked.'

The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.

June 4, 2016 - Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser for Michaela Lemelin

I will be serving as a Medium for this fundraiser on June 4th.    Come by and support Michaela.
It is a great day to come to the LD Coordinators Meeting and then come for a Spaghetti meal after.
There will be prizes like a reading with Lisa Williams, theme baskets and other unique prizes as well as a 50/50 raffle.
All proceeds to be given to Michaela.

What is the difference between Memorial, Armed Forces and Veteran's Day?

Just a reminder that this Monday is Memorial Day - often confused with Veterans Day - but sadly so different.
Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country's armed forces.
Many Americans celebrate Armed Forces Day annually on the third Saturday of May. It is a day to pay tribute to men and women who serve the United States' armed forces. Armed Forces Day is also part of Armed Forces Week, which begins on the second Saturday of May.
Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces.

First Spiritualist Church of Erie - Speaker July 10,2016

I am looking forward to speaking again at the First Spiritualist Church of Erie in July.   This church is full of positive loving energy.   It is a pleasure to visit and each time I leave this Church I am lifted higher than when I arrived.
After church on this day is their Medium Sunday and I will be giving mini readings as well.   Hopefully I will bring a few friends with me.
Every second Sunday of each month is Medium Sunday at the First Spiritualist Church of Erie. Services start at 11:00 a.m. Come early for fellowship, coffee and donuts!
Mini readings are $7 and *​​pot luck dinner is $3. Readings are about 15 minutes each. Please bring a dish to pass.
I look forward to seeing you on July 10th...  

Being Patient is not easy!

Trust me, I understand.  One of the hardest things in life is to be patient during the storm. 
A reoccurring theme lately for me is PATIENCE.  The definition is simple:
Patience is the state of endurance under difficult circumstances, which can mean persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting on negative annoyance/anger; or exhibiting forbearance ... Wikipedia
Today, breathe in positive, exhale negative. Trust that the Universe is working on your prayers and they will come to you when the time is right.  Perhaps not on your time table, but never the less just in the moment you need it.

How are you defined?


Let Go of those things that no longer serve you...


I am confident you are looking at this and thinking to yourself "it is a lot easier to say than do".  I am here to say - I have been there and I understand.
What do you let go of first?   The anger, the disappointment?  People that are bringing negativity into your life?  Or is it something even more significant?
Only you can answer it.  I am just here to say by doing so, you open up space for the Universe to replace it with something more beautiful and wonderful -- FOR YOU.  By hanging on to the old there is no room for the new.
It is okay, let go - breathe and believe in the new coming your way.

Take Moment - Enjoy the Beauty of Flowers Blooming




There are times that you will be stressed or exhausted.   There is something wonderful about watching a flower bloom.   One must have patience in a garden it doesn't happen like it does in this time lapse video.   For now, this moment, be in wonder that nature provides us...

How are you going to change your day?



When we start the day on a positive note it will fortify us all day. So if we just happen to trip on a pebble we can smile and know that it was a minor inconvenience not the end of the world.

What is a Strong Person?



The strongest people are those that have faced great disappointments, and have shed lots of tears.  It is in how they carry on after those moments that show their strength.
Wipe those tears and carry on.   Feel the fear, push on.   You can do it!

Remember that you are never too old!


Dream big!   Don't give up on those dreams.   Sometimes the best things in your life happen later than it does for others.   Just believe and keep the faith and have patience.

When you find a feather... it has a message for you!



Finding a feather is a blessing. 
They don't happen all that often but when they do, it is a message to pay attention.  Here is a handy little chart I found regarding the meanings behind finding feathers.   I hope you find it useful.

The World needs more Compassion

Compassion is hard for many people.   Perhaps it is because they have not seen it in action.  It is the simple acts of kindness and compassion that mean the most to people. 
Compassion is simply concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.  You do not have to do much to be compassionate.  
Compassion is the response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help.  Remember it is not what we think that will help but the person we have the compassion for that matters.  

Sometimes compassion is simply sitting quietly listening to the person and allowing them to work through the problem or situation.   Sometimes it is lending a hand.   Other times, compassion is not judging the person for where they stand at the moment.

Thank you for an awesome day in Depew at The Grapevine Psychic Fair

I just got home after a beautiful day of serving Spirit in Depew at the Grapevine Psychic Fair.  
I got to spend some time with some great friends, give some great messages and work with a group of enthusiastic volunteers that made do so a blessing.
To everyone over at P. I. T. Society -- Thanks for a great day....   I look forward to the next event at the Tonawanda Castle on August 7th!   I will be doing a Gallery Reading with Colleen Kulikowski as well as doing private readings throughout the day.   These sessions are fast paced and a lot of fun.  

Keep Open to the possibilities!


Keeping open to what the Universe has in store for you is not an easy task.  It take patience and a willingness to see the beauty in every little thing in life. 
That you have opportunity to be great. 
Greater than you can imagine.  It just means that you have some faith that the opportunities will be there. 
Young children do this naturally, it is as we get older that we loose this ability.  So today, become that inner child and wonder and dream. Hope and Believe!

A Lion Doesn't Concern Himself with the Opinion of Sheep...


Focus on what you are good at.  Keep doing it even if others feel it isn't good enough.   You are an amazing human and you have many gifts to give the world.  Don't forget that!

You are beautiful!

Over the years, I have watched several people blossom as they come into their own.  They have endured very difficult times and come out the other side stronger.
If you are experiencing a difficult time, know that it does get better.   Love will find you and surround you.   You just have to believe it so.
Have faith!

Serving Spirit and your Spiritual Growth




Mercury is in Retrograde.  It is a good time to sit back and reflect and review thing.  Pay attention to what is coming up and work on those issues.

Over the years I have seen so many who for one reason or another fail to believe in themselves.  That the only thing holding them back is their thinking.
Sometimes this thinking has been so deeply programmed into their head that they don't even know it is there.  They allow fear and doubt stop them from doing the one thing that will set them free.
If you think this may apply to you, remember you have the power within you to change things.   Start little, surround yourself with people that love and support you.   Start believing that you can -- and YOU WILL!

Sharing the journey with others...


A friend of mine recently shared why she writes to share her experiences with others.   She inspired me to share my experiences as well.  
Some times Mediumship isn't about giving a message to a specific person.   Some times it is leaving the breadcrumb for someone to make their life better.  Inspire them to explore and find their own truth.  
There is a segment of Mediumship that is about inspirational talks and writing.   They are just as powerful as giving a message to someone from a loved one that has passed on.   Sometimes even more powerful because they can affect the lives of many.
If you have found this breadcrumb and it helps you smile today; well then, I have done my job. 
My story is not that extraordinary but something that I have learned along the way, may just make your life easier.   So I share things that inspire me, make me smile and that I feel the need to share.   I may never know who it is important to, but I have faith that in sharing my journey that it will help someone else.

As We Go Forth


Just a reminder... May 15th Psychic Fair at the Grapevine in Depew NY

 

Respecting Others Beliefs

I have been around a few years.   I have learned a few things along the way.   I don't always agree with everyone.  I am known to be a little opinionated.  I say my peace.  
Respecting others beliefs is important.   I have learned the Universe does not revolve around me.   There are a few people are in for a surprise when they discover that truth.
Over the years I have met many people in my travels.   Those that are the hard core religious types that cannot respect someone else's beliefs are the most difficult to get along with.  
Spiritual people, the truly Spiritual that is, can accept that there are other ways of thinking.   They may not agree with it, but they respect the other persons beliefs and move on with their daily lives.
You see folks, there is room for more than one way of thinking.   If we all practiced RESPECT a little more, we may all be a lot happier.  Each of us have different paths along the way.  These paths intersect and cross as we grow.   One of the hardest lessons people have to learn is the Universe does not revolve around oneself.

    In between I find time to do private readings and the occasional Medium Sunday and fund raisers around town.

    Have a Great Week!

    As we start the week we all hope that the week goes smoothly for us.
    We all encounter some parts that are on the rough side for us. May we approach it with the curiosity of what we may learn from it and experience the joys of life that gives us the inner peace we all search for.
    Always accept an attitude of gratitude.

    There is no head of the table in Spirituality


    We all sit at the table as Spiritualists.   Why do you think that so many churches rotate who runs the program and why they have different speakers each week?
    Simply put it is because this is a shared experience.    We are always learning and growing.  It is when a community stops that process or rejects the shared concept and wants it to be more lead by any one person that a problem exists.  
    Each person defines their relationship with God.  Their connection is direct.   We as Spiritualists have a direct connection and we do not need a middleman (or Religion) to define it for us and explain it to us.  
    Spiritualism is a way of life.  The minute we start forming it in a way that is an organized Religion with dogma we begin to lose our way.
