Dream Visitations

Dream Visitations

Have you ever had a dream where your loved one who has past appears?  It is more than a dream—it is a dream visitation.  There are clues to help you understand the difference between a simple dream and a dream visitation.  This article will bring more understanding to your experiences.  Not only will it bring clarity but it will also shed light on how important you are in the grander scheme of things; how loved you are; how your love for those who have past is still reciprocated; how worthy you are, and most importantly that the love you experience in a dream visitation is available to you in physical form.

How do they happen?

When you sleep your ego consciousness is quiet and will not engage.  The ego consciousness is what nudges you into dismissing events because they seem to be just so far-fetched (limitation of the ego consciousness) that it cannot and should not be believed.

Spirit can insert itself into your dream state rather easily and will allow you to see what you need to see or deliver a message that is necessary to inspire healing.

When do they happen? 

The timing of a dream visitation is not predicated out of your desire or desperation.  Spirit has clear view of your bigger picture and will only insert itself into your dream state at the perfect time for you.  Spirit understands the fine line between wanting something so badly and needing something.  It will only present itself at the most optimum time for you.

Why do they happen?

Dream visitations occur for varied reasons.  They tend to deliver messages in a meaningful way to the dreamer according to their path of healing.  Often a loved one will present themselves in dream state to show their peace, love and joy from their vantage point of non-physical.  This allows the dreamer to know their loved ones are fine which is often enough for them to engage more fully in the art of living fully.  Other dreams may have your loved one offer a message that you will understand that is vital in your overall peace and well-being.  The reasons may be varied for their appearance in your dream but in essence the common thread is their unconditional love for you.  That love is ever-present and being sent to you in every moment.  In turn, your love for them is received and amplified.  It is an ongoing relationship, eternally.  Love never dies and neither does your loved one.

There have been times when a dream visitation has been far from pleasant.  This causes consternation in the dreamer.  Take heart, it never means your loved one is not well, is frustrated or sad or angry.  They are merely acting as the mirror you need in order to see what you are holding onto physically, mentally and emotionally.  For instance, if you see your mother in your dream and she is angry or sickly it is more that she is showing you your own worry and concern or deeply held resentment/bitterness that was present between you in life or your concern that you didn’t do enough for her at the end of her life.  Spirit will never convey anger or frustration.  If you are seeing this in your dream visitation it is your projection of your own fear and resentment onto Spirit.  This happens so that the dreamer can target these areas in waking state in order to heal them.  It is all so perfect!

Why have I never had a dream visitation?

So many of us long for that dream visitation and do everything in our power to conjure one.  It is not because you are forgotten by your loved one.  It is not because they have stopped loving you.  It is because they can see your bigger picture and know the perfect time to insert themselves.  Some never have them.  Others wait years.  Still others have them virtually right away.  It is all by design and not based on your value or worth—nor is it based on how long you have suffered or how badly you want one.  If I were to ask you what your bigger picture was would you be able to tell me?  I didn’t think so.  No one has a clear understanding of it—but Spirit does.  Trust it to do right by you.  It always has and it always will.  Unconditional love happens to work that way.  Be on the look out for other signs from loved ones during your waking states.  They are always letting you know they are right by your side!  I will cover more of these types of signs in a future article.

How to tell the difference between a dream and a dream visitation

A dream visitation is a higher vibration than that of a regular dream.  Regular dreams may not be remembered, or they can be forgotten completely.  Not so with a dream visitation.  Because of the higher frequency the details are unusually vivid and will be remembered for a lifetime.

Sharing is caring

We tend to learn most in our lives by sharing our own experiences.  Please share yours regarding dream visitations.  You will never know whom you might inspire!

I’m Ready

ara permission-granted

The cruise is officially over.  I am home, unpacked, and slept in my own bed last night.  It felt wonderful!

The trip was yet another opportunity to fine tune my desires; understand exactly what my path is; where I want it to go; what is necessary and what isn’t; the depth and breadth of my abilities and my commitment to be of service; and lastly, the expression in which I will move forward.  I am happy.  No.  I am more than happy.  Within me is a peace I am fortunate enough to reacquaint myself with and a joy that uplifts beyond measure.

As I embarked on this latest magical journey I was filled with expectation.  I was seeking a deeper clarity because, in essence, I felt stuck energetically.  It was astounding to me that in being so determined to ferret out what was so ‘wrong’ with me and/or my direction regarding this ‘stuck’ feeling, I found out in  tangible, powerful ways, what was so ‘right’ about me in regard to the work that I do.  It was deeply freeing.  I suppose that is the resulting sensation when one gives Self the permission to unabashedly ‘be’.

For the longest time I have wanted to expand in specific areas and I found that this is exactly what I am meant to do.  Some things cannot be denied.  It wasn’t enough for the Universe to move mountains to give me the clarity in the form of an epiphany accompanied by a strong resonation that moved me to tears, it also moved the mountain, which was me, in effortless ways to give me the evidence that I can move mountains on my own just as easily. What a profound reminder!

I was eager to get what I believed I needed on this cruise—clarity, certainty, and direction.  The Council of 12 showed me once again how backward we tend to think, feel and live sometimes.  I did ‘get’ what I was seeking and it came from unexpected sources.  It came from the opportunities that came my way to ‘give’. It was in the giving that my permission surfaced.  It was in the giving that a power was finally, blessedly and unapologetically unleashed.  It was in the giving to others that I gave to myself and realized that it is in that giving the floodgates open, the answers come, the permissions are granted and love restores.

New trails await to be forged – and I am ready. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium & Spiritual Teacher

Letting Go

letting go

“You are all here to Let Go. You are all here to Let Go of conditioning; of paradigms that no longer serve who you have become; of people who demonstrate an alignment not like your own; of loving in a way that speaks of possession. You are here to Let Go—not to hang on with a sense of entitlement that dissolves into attachment or ownership. It is okay to Let Go for it is in the letting go that freshness brightens clarity and new paths are discovered. Know these new paths are just as temporary as the ones you are leaving behind. Everything about you changes and evolves because that is why you are here. Expansion! You cannot grow and expand if you insist on holding onto what you believe you had. Allow the magic to work with you. Let go—and fly. Soaring is your natural proclivity–always.” ~ Council of 12 via Ara Parisien

There is always more to know….

mist and waves

Wow…I am back from an absolutely fantastic walk on the beach. There is nothing like the sound of the waves and the wind in your hair to restore faith and clarity! As I sat for a time I noticed there was a thick mist blanketing the usually vibrant shoreline off in the distance. As I watched for a few minutes it began to lighten and I began to see the scenery behind it. The waves demanded my attention as they relentlessly crashed forward, then pulled back, revealing shoals that were previously unseen. I marveled at the power and force of it all. Suddenly, the Council was speaking with me acknowledging that as I have now witnessed what ‘lays beneath’ here on this beach and over behind the mist in the distance, so have I seen the depths of another. “There is always more to see and more to know. Be grateful for the tides of time for they will always reveal what initially had been obscured. Love all—in spite of the expression that rises out of their depths.”

Psychic Predictions

psychic predictions

***spoiler alert***

I am about to write something that will ruffle a few feathers for some. Be that as it may, it has never stopped me from voicing my truth.

I am often asked to make psychic predictions in my line of work. Why shouldn’t people ask when I label myself as a psychic medium? It is a common and appropriate question. However, my response is not what people typically expect. I don’t make psychic predictions. I believe they are disempowering to individuals. So how can that be? Aren’t psychics supposed to ‘know’ the future?

The truth is, we can, but not in the way that most people think. We can tell what someone is inviting into their reality by the feel of their energy, the things they say, and the issues they are most focused upon and how they are focused upon them. It is like the GPS of a reading. So in the interpretation of where the GPS is taking them do we tell them their worst fears will be realized very soon? No. The task of the lightworker is to redirect the energy to their benefit. So do we tell them they will win the lottery on Wednesday and all will be well? No. We merely give them something more positive to focus upon. We gently turn their boat around so that it is pointing downstream. We give them relief from their intense focus on what they don’t want and give them permission to focus on what they do want. A psychic can read the direction of energy and in their re-direction of that energy can see how things might be if the recipient’s focus changes thereby inferring a different possible outcome. Still, it depends solely on the recipient’s participation in moving toward that different possible outcome.

With this new focus seeded during a reading the recipient’s task is to hold onto the positive thought structure and feel it, live it, breathe it, focus on it. Then and only then will their future bend and turn to their desires. Depending on the momentum they have built up in the opposite direction it might turn out they experience just a little change in their circumstances, which is better than nothing. Some will focus intently and realize significant changes. The choice is theirs. The choice is always theirs. No psychic reader can make the choice for them.

Your focus is your power. Wherever you place it to any degree or intensity you are inviting what is focused upon into your reality. You are that powerful. A psychic will provide you clarity on what is possible but it is up to you to keep your boat turned so it flows effortlessly downstream. There is no concrete prediction from a psychic that doesn’t involve your participation–in fact–there is no prediction uttered by a psychic that doesn’t involve your participation.

It is probably not in your best interest to view psychics as charlatans, although in any given profession you may experience a few. We can identify trends and currents but a psychic can never focus for you, choose for you or live for you. They can lift the fog of confusion so you may glimpse your own clarity and your own answers. They will direct you back to your own authentic power each and every time–or at least they should. If they don’t and insist that their predictions are accurate and you should believe them–and you do–then you have effectively given your power away. In that way the process becomes disempowering.

I realize I may have taken much of the mystery and drama out of the equation when it comes to psychic predictions. However, you deserve to be reconnected with the wonder and power of who you are. Once you begin to understand the nature of energy you will be well on your way to solving a part of the great mystery of who you truly are and what is infinitely possible. Life becomes a series of effortless moments.

Psychic predictions. You are in charge. You always have been.
