When Less is More

The last few weeks my focus has been on moving house. I have watched the house I have been occupying for the last eighteen months become more bare each day as I transport 'stuff' to the next residence.

I like the bareness...I like that there are five coffee mugs in the cupboard rather than fifty, I like that when I open the linen cupboard I am not attacked by cascading sheets and towels, I like that the food in the pantry is basic and simple.

I began to think how easy it is to complicate things, to believe that we need this or we need that or otherwise our lives are crap. I started thinking of smiling underprivileged children who have very little materially, but appear to be on a wave of bliss.

Perhaps the problem is not in the items themselves, but the burden of responsibility that time consuming 'things' can bring.

When I relocated as a single mum from Melbourne to Byron Bay in 1996, the moving truck got delayed for two weeks.  When I first heard about the delay I went into meltdown. How can I survive for 2 weeks without my furniture? I thought as I panicked.

A friend organized a mattress, kettle, toaster and some basic crockery.  It was one of the best two weeks of my life. My then 3 year old son and I swam every day in the ocean. We made a billion sand castles and ate super simply. I remember the day the removal truck arrived I wanted to tell them to take it all back. As each item entered the house I felt a sense of burden and responsibility returning, this is 'real life' I thought.

So obviously it is not the 'things' but perhaps its the feelings we associate with 'having.'  We are regularly subliminally bombarded with messages telling us that we must have the right car, right job and even non material things like the right relationship else we are a failure.

In moments of simplicity and gratitude it is clear to me that less can be more and that having more may not necessarily be what I need. Perhaps this concept can apply to all areas of our lives. Extracting the essence of what is good in a sea of plenty is maybe what out soul craves.

For many of us, I know this realization is nothing new, but its always good to be reminded and to reset our lives where we have become too comfortable.

Having less is an opportunity to create more space and time for things that matter in our lives, spending time with those we love, inner peace and joy.

Your Questions Answered

Question
What does my love life have in store for the upcoming future? 
Maddison


Answer
When I tune in for you Maddison, I get such a wave of love from an elderly woman in Spirit who has passed over who indicates she is on your mothers side of the family. She said you have a beautiful heart and are very capable of achieving whatever you put your mind too. As far as love goes, she said the trick is not to watch the kettle, but to focus on other things and before you know it the kettle will  boil. I think she is trying to say to not worry about focusing on love too much and it will work out just fine in perfect time. In the meantime occupy your attention on things that bring you joy and happiness. There is definitely a serious commitment like a marriage ahead of you and eventually all will work out well in areas of love. 

Question


Can you see my relationship finally over and has he met someone else? 



Miss R
 
 When I tune in for you I feel the arms of angels around you comforting you and saying that they know how much you love this man on a soul level but at this time it is causing you more grief and heartache than anything else. Its time to let him go energetically regardless of physical outcomes. At this point, even if he walked in now and you gave it another go, it would just come back to the same heartache and life is too precious to waste on being unhappy. 

I know you asked whether he is seeing someone else but when I tune in to that question, I just get a blank, so I am sorry I can not tell you the answer. Sometimes I think we are not meant to know everything and in a way, tuning in on someones personal life is an invasion of privacy which is perhaps why I don't get anything there. However, do not feel bad for asking, I understand your curiousity totally! I've been there!

Do whatever you have to do to get your power back and feel whole again. You can do this, I know you can. If you need healing support, reach out to friends, family or healers. Ask your angels to guide you to the healing that you need. I actually get that your GP may be able to help in some way.  Take all the energy you are giving this situation and use it to help and heal yourself. You deserve the best !

Memories through time

Image by Holistic Sutra

I find past life therapy fascinating. Over the years, I have experienced past life regressions and also regressed others successfully although some people don't experience anything initially. Sometimes it is like getting a massage the first time, the memories have to loosen up.

I have also found when giving Reiki Healing to others that past lives have been revealed to the client and myself, sometimes simultaneously.

Past life regression can be a potent healing tool. Is fantasy or reality? Who knows for sure, there is so little we know about the subconscious mind but if its healing and beneficial, I'm all for it.

A powerful experience I had in one of my own regressions was when I found myself a young man with tan coloured skin, on a beautiful blue ocean near a tropical island rowing a simple fishing boat.

I was acutely aware that it was my responsibility to get enough fish to feed the community waiting for food on the beach. I knew if I failed, the people would be hungry and I would be blamed.  I felt a panic rise within me and for some reason I returned empty handed, I had to pay the price with my life, I was knocked out and drowned by an angry crowd.

This explained my fear of the ocean in this life. (although I actually do enjoy eating fresh fish!)  It also helped me understand my innate sense of feeling responsible for others.

An excerpt from 'Principles of Past Life Therapy' by Judy Hall below gives another perspective;

'A woman regressed to being a much loved only child. A real 'Daddy's girl'. She was given a pony for her birthday and was ecstatically happy. She leapt onto the pony, which bolted. She was thrown and killed. Asked what connection this had with her present life, she replied that when ever she was happy she would start to worry. There was always a vague sense of dread. She associated being happy with fear and loss. Being killed in a moment of supreme happiness in that other life made sense of her fear' 

Past life therapy can heal phobias, physical complaints, relationship issues, emotional blocks, fears and insecurities and is particularly useful when all other options to heal these things have been exhausted. There are countless stories of physical injuries that happened in a past life, presenting themselves as a problem in this life.


For example, perhaps you were shot in the shoulder in a past life and this life you have chronic shoulder pain for no obvious reason and it won't heal. After revealing in a past life regression that you were shot, the pain disappears in this life.

A lady I regressed years ago was passionate about natural therapies and had recently attained her qualifications to practice naturopathy.  However, she found that she was incredibly fearful of marketing her business.  The regression revealed she had been hung after being accused of being a witch in the past.  She saw herself picking herbs in a forest and curing people in need. She then saw herself being dragged away by an angry crowd to the gallows. She even had a birth mark on her neck. It is believed by some that birthmarks are scars from past lives. After the regression she lost the fear and went forward with her healing practice.

So it appears somehow these memories are stored in our subconscious or perhaps our cells and can shape our present experience. Once revisited, a release effect occurs, allowing one to move forward.

Much research has been done on past life therapy with some uncanny results and I encourage you to explore it if it interests you. Listed below are some recommended reading and audios.

Question

I wanted to ask about my current situation with two guys in my life, I need some guidance from the universe on what is going on in my life?

Miss S

Answer 

It seems abundance is yours! Seriously though, I feel a grandmother energy around you helping you with this and impressing patience upon you. She indicates you will know in time which one is more suitable to get closer to. She is saying to enjoy this time and don't be in a hurry to commit to anyone quite yet.  You need more time to get to know these guys and remember everything happens for a reason, its just that sometimes we have to wait to see what those reasons are. I feel that one of these guys is travelling somewhere soon and around that time it will become clear to you what is happening in your own life.

Question

My father passed suddenly a few months ago and my family and I are still in shock. Is he okay?  

Mary

Answer

I sense your Dad around you in Spirit who shows me himself with his hand on his heart so I am assuming he may have passed from a heart problem. He loves you so much and brings pink roses to give you, he says it is someones birthday. He also mentions the name Alan and tells you there is good news around your work towards the end of the year. He understands your grief and regrets he had to leave without saying goodbye but is close around you holding your hand. He sends his love to the rest of the family.

A Wise Duck Tale



Years ago, I bought the book 'A Course in Miracles'  channeled by psychologist, Helen Schucman after hearing amazing stories about it.

Much to my disappointment, I could hardly make head or tail of it, it was like reading the bible only worse. I persevered for awhile and eventually it gathered dust and I gave it away to someone.

As the years went by I continued to hear quotes and insights from the book but I had already made up my mind, it wasn't for me.

Recently, I have been interested in the work of life coach Alan Cohen and I noticed he had written a book called 'A Course in Miracles Made Easy' 

Finally, someone had thought to explain it in layman's term so I downloaded it onto my ipad. Although I am early into the book at present, I am loving it. Here is an excerpt from Alan's book that I think you will like.

'A Shaggy Duck Story'  


When I lived in an organic farming community, one morning I sat on the porch of the bunkhouse, watching members walk across a grassy area to the dining hall. Beside the path, Pete the duck sat and quacked at people as they walked by.

 A professional singer was the first to pass by Pete that morning. Upon hearing him, she stopped and told him "How nice of you to sing me a morning song!"

The next woman along the path was rather over weight. When she heard Pete quack in her direction, she scolded him, "You're always quacking for more food, Pete. It's time you stuck to your diet!"

The final person to pass was a very intellectual architect. Hearing Pete's voice, he retorted, "Questions, Pete - always questions! How about some answers for a change?" 

Hmm
Each person saw Pete through the lens of his own self perception. They projected their worldview onto the duck and attributed their beliefs about themselves to him. It was their own selves they were talking to. We are all speaking only to self'  From A Course in Miracles Made Easy: Mastering the Journey from Fear to Love. Alan Cohen
 https://www.amazon.com/Course-Miracles-Made-Easy-Mastering/dp/1401947344

I love this story as it illustrates the potential for shifting our perception of any given situation. We have the choice of a million different lenses to view our lives, including how we see others. However, when it comes down to tin tacks, I believe it has a lot to do with choosing love over fear, particularly self love.

Perhaps if we were to choose to love our self, to be kind to our self and less critical of our self more often, we would see the world outside as a friendlier more loving place. If we didn't judge ourselves so harshly, we wouldn't judge others so harshly, if we were kinder to ourselves, surely more kindness would flow out into a world that is so thirsty for love. 

So next time you are feeling judged by someone or indeed find yourself judging someone else, just remember... quack quack!

Question
I am caught in a toxic cycle with my ex. 
Am I right in thinking he is a narcissist? 
I swing between thinking I'm caught in a manipulator's web, or there is genuine love and I'm acting out codependent tendencies and he's mirroring perfectly the necessary soul lesson. 
What's the truth?
Confused Anonymous

Answer
My first impression is that you know deep down that this cycle has played out for long enough. I feel there is a kind gentleman, a father type energy,  around you in Spirit encouraging you to break free and start fresh. Yes there is genuine love and whether he is a narcissist or not is debatable and in some ways irrelevant. I get the necessary soul lesson you have been playing out is done yet it is your choice to change the dance you have been dancing with him. Spirit wants you to know they will support you in taking new approaches to the situation.

Question
Do you see a break through for me? I am still working towards that promotion. Trying harder than ever. Do you think it will happen soon? Josie

Answer
I sense angels around this situation helping you. They show me there is some inconsistency around the situation, nothing to do with you. I feel the hold up is to do with whoever/wherever you work and them ironing out certain situations. Keep doing whatever you are doing and you will get the breakthrough you seek. Trust in divine timing, easier said than done I know. I also was shown a vision board, perhaps a suggestion from the angels.

Question
Will my Mum benefit from this new rehab program & improve enough to go back to living independently & drive again.? Mel

Answer
Your mother has many people around her in Spirit encouraging her and sending much healing and love. This experience is life changing for her and there is much inner growth and wisdom coming from it. Patience and perseverance is still needed at this time but she is where she is meant to be right now and it will definitely pay off. I get a great feeling for mid next year for her. It doesn't mean there won't be progress or breakthroughs before then but I get that she is where she wants to be by then. 

Question
My beloved cat Belle has a corneal ulcer and, if in 2 weeks it has not resolved, she will need surgery. Last time the other eye cost me $2,000 with Brissie specialist. What can you pick up? It's been stressful.
Sue 

Answer
I feel Belle's spirit as I tune in and I feel she is so grateful to you for all the love and care you give her and is a special pussy cat. Unfortunately the ulcer does feel stubborn and may require surgery but I feel somehow you get it done cheaper or some organisation may be able to help? Another suggestion is to set up a 'Go Fund Me Page' ( I will definitely donate if you choose to set one up.)

Question
My family and I currently live in Sydney but we would liek to get away and move to a Murwillumbah in Northern nsw. Do you see us being able to do this and if so when? Belinda 

Answer
I get Archangel Michael with a big green traffic light around this situation and feel it can indeed happen next year. Now is the time to be planning and working towards making this a reality. I do feel your time is up in Sydney. Persevere in making the change, it will be worth it in the long term. I see you eventually on acreage that is very green and pretty.

Fi Fi Flies Free

     'Don't die with the music still in you'  Dr. Wayne Dyer
My friend Fi in our younger days


A few weeks ago a dear friend of mine I grew up with passed away.  I was sitting up in bed on a Saturday morning like a queen, sipping on a soy cappuccino, ipad in hand when that familiar ping sounded on my mobile phone.

The text read 'Fiona not good, tumours in brain and elsewhere, sedated for pain, in Byron Hospital' I was shocked, it was the first I had heard of it. Melanoma had crept up and extended its ugly tentacles without her knowledge. She was only 55.

Strangely, for a few moments, obviously in shock, I put the phone down and returned to my coffee and ipad...and then it hit me. Oh my God! I got up, showered and went down to the hospital.

I spent an hour with my friend Fi and her lovely partner and in my own way, I got to say goodbye to her. There was an uncanny feeling of peace in the hospital room, it reminded me of the same feeling when I gave birth to my children. I am convinced the exit and the entry points to this planet are guarded by unseen angels. Two days later she passed away.

When I left the hospital I headed straight to the Mullumbimby markets and I wandered around in a type of a silent cocoon trying to process the mornings events. It was a lovely sunny winter morning as people milled around, music played and children laughed. The scent of delicious food permeated the morning air. The colourful stalls added to the festive atmosphere but part of me was numb and  everything seemed slightly surreal.

I wanted to yell out to everyone, wake up, enjoy your life, its going to run out as if no one had ever considered it before. Silly I know, but death does that, it makes you aware of your own mortality and that each of us is literally a ticking time bomb where one day the life runs out and we move on to the other realm. Perhaps not such a bad thing but what about the limited time we are here? What the heck are we doing with it? What do we want to say to ourselves on our death beds? Do we really want to spend our time not forgiving people, whinging, feeling sorry for ourselves and believing we are not good enough? Do we really want to live our lives in a consistent sea of anxiety and confusion when we have the power to make choices that nourish us, support us and expand who we are, allowing us to appreciate and enjoy the limited moments we are given.
Red Fragipani's (Plumeria) help to sooth grief
                                                            

I know many of you reading this have lost people dear to you and I am sure you will agree with me when I say that if there is a gift in death, it is this, it makes us appreciate life and all the gifts within it, so for this I thank everyone I have ever known who has died before me.

Fly free Fi! Thanks for the hours of laughter we shared and our sense of connection.  I am still waiting to feel and hear you from the other side and I look forward to our next meeting whenever and wherever
that may be.

Question
Is there a more satisfying job in a different section at work in the future?
Anonymous

Answer
I feel a beautiful mother figure around you in Spirit who comes through with a bouquet of white with a pink trim carnations. She said you deserve the best and to be assertive in asking what your needs are at work, she insists they will listen. Time to get in somebodies ear! Come September there will be some good news. She sends mountains of love and says to tell you she has the lamb?

Question

 I have just finished a yoga teacher training course and about to become a reiki teacher. Where to from here and where will I find a healing room.  Deb

Answer
You have many guides around you in Spirit cheering you on and sending their congratulations on all your hard work. I get the sense to enjoy the journey and not to be too fixated on the destination. Things are unfolding perfectly and you just have to be a willing participant, which you are. Start small and build up. I see you teaching a small group to begin. There is a healing room for you, maybe towards the Gold Coast but the timing is not quite right. One day at a time is the strong message I get, your lesson is trust and listening to your higher guidance at the moment.  

Question
I ended a difficult marriage 3.5 years ago and feel I'm finally ready for someone to come into my life. Do you see this for me soon? And will it be healthy or do I need to keep working on myself?
Patricia 

Answer
I feel a father energy around you in Spirit helping you at the moment and wants to acknowledge all the work you have done on yourself. The only work you need to do is accept yourself for who you are, you are perfect as you are and you have a lot to offer the right person. There is someone for you who is a sensitive soul who may be artistic on some level, music or art. Be open minded. I feel like you meet them through a friend or a friend of a friend. I see you sitting near ocean having coffee with them. I am not sure of the timing although it does not seem that far away. Just keep loving you! 

Question 

I'd like to ask about how to manage me time, energy and boundaries better to benefit me and my biz and son. Instead of doing everything for others. 
Jacinta 


Answer
I can't help but think you answered your own question here. Its like you have made a decision to create boundaries which is admirable. If you are struggling implementing boundaries, I suggest you seek the support of self help books, courses or mentors. Ask your guides and angels to guide you to the perfect support for you. I do see a lovely Goddess looking lady around you in Spirit who will help you and you may even help others in the future to be more assertive as part of your divine purpose. 

Question
My daughter is having issues at school. I am not sure what to do as I feel that she is not getting the positive attitude she needs ,she has such a big heart though she keeps getting  put down and treated differently so why ? Do I keep her there, home school or try some where else ?
Kris

Answer
I feel your daughter's grandfather in Spirit around her and sends much love. He said she has a shiny and strong Spirit and has a wonderful purpose in this life where she will help the weak and the vulnerable. Although these lessons are difficult for her at present, it is cultivating her as a person for what she will have to do when she is older. At this point I get it would be more unsettling to make a change than to change. I get to persevere where she is. Perhaps you could re evaluate towards the end of the year. I get that is you persevere, the other children will accept her for who she is which is a dear and loving soul.

Question
I'm considering moving from this place that's been home for over 20 years. What does Spirit say about this, in terms of timing and relocation please?
Judy 

Answer
I feel ancient tribal spirits around you that are connected to the land and get the sense that there is change in the next few years around where you are living. I feel this is not something to rush but to take your time to think and feel it out. I do see you living somewhere that is very green and fresh new energy. Keep asking for guidance and trust your intuition. Clarity will come in the Springtime.

Today I have copied an excerpt from the beginning of the book where I interviewed my Spirit Guide White Owl, who helped me write the book.

Excerpt from 'Gifts of Guidance; Fifty Messages' Page xix

Interview with White Owl

Liz
White Owl, how can one communicate with Spirit?

White Owl
There is a place within each of you that you touch on every day in the moments between your thoughts. Your inner radar responds to theses flashes of insight and feelings but your logical mind is like the strict parent who puts down tough boundaries and encourages you to deny your intuition. With practice, you can choose to give these moments more credit and honour. As you begin to shift your faith from the logical to the intuitive and give yourself permission to own your spiritual self, your ability to see, feel and hear Spirit will increase.


Liz
Is there anything we can do to help this process?

White Owl
Have fun, yes have fun! Humans are forgetting the simple pleasures of being alive. With so many expectations and responsibilities weighing you down it is no wonder. However, you all have the power to choose to approach life with a lighter heart, mind and soul. When the self is light and happy your vibration elevates and it is easier to tap into the subtle vibrations of your higher self and commune with Spirit. It really can be that simple.

Reach out for support from Spirit and from those around you. Many of you feel you have to struggle alone, be proud and weather storms without support. Humans need each other and unless you ask for help, no one will know you need it. There is also a universal law about asking Spirit for help. Spirit cannot intervene without your permission except under specific circumstances. So please, swallow your pride, be like a child and reach out when you are unsure, afraid or alone.  Spirit and people respect and love a humble soul and the lesson of humility will aid in your communication with the Spirit world.


Liz
How do we know that the Spiritual Messengers who come to us are genuine and not imposters or negative souls?

White Owl
First of all, you need to understand what ‘negative souls’ or lower realm entities are. Imagine looking at bacteria under a microscope, they are all wriggling around and look most unattractive. Certain bacteria thrive in specific environments. For example, mould will thrive in damp moist environments. However, if you remove the environmental conditions, the bacteria will cease to exist as it cannot survive without the right conditions.

Same with undesired entities, they need a low energy environment; they prefer illness, sadness, depression and loneliness and are quite partial to drugged or drunken atmospheres.

You will know the energy of Spirit in your heart when it is real. You will feel a sense of wonder and an uplifting feeling. A negative energy is simply that, negative, and you feel it. Even if the lower energy is dressed in angel wings, something will not feel right and it is up to you to trust your own reactions. If you protect yourself each time you go within by asking the angels, white lighting yourself or whatever method you choose, you should not encounter such low vibrational energies. 

If you do encounter a lost soul or an uncomfortable energy simply ask your angels and guides to send it on its way. By doing that you automatically uplift your own vibration and the entity cannot survive in that environment. This may sound simplistic and yes it is simple. The world has become a complex place where in origin, life is simple and so is the Spirit world.

You can also talk aloud to the entity coming from a place of love, not fear, and ask them to look for the light. You can burn sage sticks, burn essential oils, say prayers and play uplifting music. Create an environment of love where only joy and peace can exist.


Liz
So basically, White Owl, we have to honour those quiet moments, our insights and gut feelings and naturally we will be able to hear and sense those in Spirit? It also helps to create a safe and sacred space and be conscious to protect ourselves spiritually. Is there anything else we can do to open up our communication with Spirit?

White Owl
Meditation is another activity to heighten Spirit communication, but keep it simple. Perhaps watch a sunrise instead of a television, lay on the grass or sand once in a while, and notice the crispness of the air on a cool day or the colour of the rose petals. These are all forms of meditation. Certainly sitting cross-legged and closing your eyes for an hour is also beneficial but experiment with what brings you a sense of peace. Meditation should not be difficult or uncomfortable. It is a natural human state that has been somewhat forgotten.

Simply talk to your Spirit friends either mentally, aloud or through journaling. We do hear you and we will respond in the best way we possibly can. Be patient and build a relationship with us, just as you would if you had just met someone new on earth. It takes time for us to align our energy with your personal vibration. Once that is achieved, conscious communication is more consistent. We prefer that this process be subtle over time as to do it too quickly may cause a level of discomfort.

Even though we may feel invisible to you, have faith, keep communicating and enjoy the unfoldment of discovering us, as we will with you. We are so proud of each and every one of you for taking on this life you are leading which we understand is challenging and daunting at times. Remember life never ends even when the body expires but remember to honour the present moment and that the life you have now is a precious gem in a vast and mystical universe.

Liz
What about the times when we do all the right things like meditate and try to hear your guidance but we are met with silence?

White Owl
There are many complexities why this may occur. Some of them include:

·     When you are feeling stress and worry, your vibration is low and your auric field contracted. It is like having a weak Wi-Fi signal when it takes a long time for anything to download. If this is this the case, we suggest you focus on prayer and we will find another way to answer you such as in a dream or with a sign.

·     You are hearing us but you are not believing it or only hearing what you want to hear.

·     It’s our day off, (White Owl roars with laughter) just joking.

·     There are certain conditions and circumstances where we are not permitted to intervene.

·     We may not be aligned enough at that time with your vibration and the communication is temporarily down.

There are other reasons that may be tailor-made to your individual circumstances.

Do remember to be patient, to slow down the mind and uplift your vibration, if possible. Never for a moment think that we are ignoring you. Sometimes for a child to learn the parent has to step back and not interfere. The child knows the parent is there in the background which gives them the confidence to explore and make mistakes so that greater learning can occur. We are like that parent; we are watching out for you but there are times it is best we hold back. This is where trust and faith, not only in us but in your own self, are of upmost importance.

Your Questions Answered

Question
Do the Spirits have any messages for me?
Jane

Answer
Hi Jane, this is a broad question and there may be many messages for you, so when I ask Spirit to bring through the one you need now I am shown a father figure in Spirit who brings light pink gentle feeling flowers through and he says that self nurturing and self love is important now. He also says that putting down boundaries with others is beneficial and to treat yourself. Are you thinking of traveling? If so it may be time to make plans. The name Jim comes through from the other side. 

Question
I feel I am waiting for something-any guidance or sight of what's next for me this year?
Miss J

Answer
I sense your inner restlessness and I feel this feeling is to prompt you to re evaluate your current direction. I feel a loving female Spirit Guide around you who presents in a light blue robe. She suggests creating a goal/goals and I am drawn to you traveling overseas. You may have had thoughts of travel of late and if that is so, it could be your guide trying to impress this upon you. This could become a goal that you work towards. The other area I sense may need some re evaluating is a shift around your career. September has a happy feeling around it.

Question
 I would like to know if I have a change in my home life, as I'm feeling I really want to move.
Miss F

Answer
I feel a lovely Spirit Guide around you who presents as a Buddhist Monk in brown robes. He has a  deep and kind energy and he immediately says patience is the key. You are correct in knowing on a deep level that time is coming to make a change.  However, now is a time to be contemplating and thinking about your options but timing is also important. Within six months I feel you are either moving or have made a clear decision about where you want to be. Keep asking within yourself for clear guidance and it will come. 

Question
We are nearly ready to buy our own home after two years of planning and saving. We would like an old place we can do up in a good resale area in the Dandenong ranges. Is there any specific guidance from spirit to help as we begin our search? 
Kelly

Answer
I feel an excitement when I tune into Spirit from a father figure energy and he shows September and October this year as a time of celebration. You will be guided to the exact right place at the exact right time. Specific guidance doesn't seem relevant as the right place is put right in front of you. As far as Spirit is concerned its already happened, you just have to catch up to their time frame. Congratulations!

Question
Would it be the right thing to do to move closer to my daughter and will I ever have grandchildren?
Ruth

Answer
I sense there are two older women who come through together in Spirit, it may have been mother and a sister, or possibly grandmother and her sister but I am on the mothers side of your family. She shows me an area that is very green, a bit country like. I feel she would like to see you living in a natural setting.  (unless you already do) Irene is also a name that comes through. They suggest that it may not be quite right at least at the moment to make a move although it may well be okay in the future. I feel your daughter either needs her own space or is meant to be doing things without you too close right now. Eventually I see a healthy grandson running around that you love very much. There may well be more grandchildren but this is the one I can see. One of the ladies in Spirit says 'count your blessings' and also showed me coins from heaven, so a message not to worry about money I think, They send you much love.
