Coincidence

ara pansies

This spring I noticed yellow pansies blooming in a planter on the patio.  It thought it quite odd as I hadn’t planted them.  I realized it was a spirit message from a dear friend who passed quite a few years ago.  We both loved pansies and she always seemed to favour any kind of yellow flowers.  I claimed this pansy as a ‘hello’ from my friend and it made me smile.

Others were quick to point out that it can happen quite often where birds or squirrels deposit treasures arbitrarily.  I smiled and agreed.  You see, I happen to understand how the universe and spirit work.  They take the path of least resistance – always.  Why pansies?  Why yellow ones?  And more importantly, why on my patio? There is no such thing as coincidence.  To me a coincidence is the manifested evidence of the universe/spirit conspiring in your favour.  It then reaches your conscious awareness at the most perfect moment and we are in awe of the magic.

Almost as if spirit was dancing in delight at being recognized the planter now houses at least 5 pansy plants all springing to life in gorgeous yellow hues – none of which I planted.  It is evidence for me to remember she did not die.  Like pansies, she grows and lives on in all things. I smile each time I see them and tend them lovingly ever so grateful to know my friend is always finding splendid ways to show me she is still with me.

Do not dismiss anything as a coincidence for it is always spirit finding the easiest way to show their love for you still lives on. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium and Spiritual Teacher

Grief

grieving-process1-300x172

Grieving is a highly personal journey. It is a time to come to terms with extreme change. It is a time to understand that the shattering of your heart is actually the expansion of what the passing of your loved one has caused you to become. You are forever changed. Birthing the new and expanded version of yourself can be painful. Take your time. Find your footing. And please, please, please do not let others demand you to hurry or question your intent when it comes to the process of your own growth and healing. There is no right way to grieve. There is no wrong way to grieve. There is only your way to grieve. ~ Medium Ara Parisien

Leave The Door Open

It is always interesting to me to watch the Universe unfold in the magical way it does. What seems more extraordinary to me is when you have the opportunity to watch it encompass and impact those you love. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing loved ones choosing growth and expansion. I am in the midst of this kind of experience and, as usual, feel compelled to share it others so they may perhaps understand that the wizardry of the Universe as well.

Growing up I had heard that abilities such as mine, being clairvoyant, clairaudient and clairsentient, were a product of the gene pool. Being adopted I had no way of finding out. However, as years passed I was fortunate to find my birth families and was so excited at the prospect of learning who I inherited these abilities from. You can imagine my disappointment when I learned that no one knew of anyone in the family before me that demonstrated any kind of psychic or mediumship abilities at all. I resigned myself to the understanding that while I am in human form I will perhaps never know the origin within my roots.

In getting to know my birth families it became evident to me that not only did they not know of family members who possessed these abilities—many of them did not believe in anything of this nature. The feeling of ‘home’ started to disintegrate before my very eyes. Once again I was looked upon as different and my abilities viewed as a by-product of an over active imagination. Still, I could not change who I was and in spite of everything I persevered and committed myself to a lifelong path of service.

Through the years my accomplishments and achievements have been met by cool nods of tolerance. Not once did they make me feel ‘less than’ but it was very clear that their belief structure was not even remotely ready to include acceptance. Until now.

I had the good fortune to be featured in a London, England based magazine called, Becoming Psychic. This upstart of a magazine is turning out to be a trendsetting endeavour that is fast tracked on the path to wild success. Not only was I on the cover of the magazine but there was a full spread inside with an in-depth interview. While I have never been one to wave a banner around when it comes to what I am doing or where the work is taking me, I had a moment of inspiration and decided to send the link to the magazine to my birth father. I didn’t expect a response other than a quick message telling me how ‘nice’ it was. I was quite surprised when his response was warm and wonderful. In his email he indicated that in reading the interview he garnered so much knowledge of what I do and commented that I expressed it all so confidently. This led him to understand the depth of my commitment and the passion with which I live and serve others. While he may not yet understand the work itself it really doesn’t matter. What matters to me is that he is opening to the possibilities of it. He is choosing expansion of Self instead of closing the door to that which unnerves him.

It is one thing to accept others but to accept another while leaving the door open to learning more is remarkable to me. I do not have a need to convince anyone. I am not on a crusade of my rightness. I am merely sharing a part of me with him that has always been there–a part he was not willing to entertain for many years. Today, he has chosen to learn. I am immensely happy!

In closing, I felt it important to share this tiny experience with all of you simply to show that if we all stop taking things personally and insisting that others understand and accept us fully there might come a day when a miracle happens. Accept everyone as they are–but leave the door open. It is an open door to enrichment and empowerment. My birth father is on a journey just like the rest of us. What a wonder it is to be so intricately involved. I know with certainty he is walking through my open door—only because he has opened his. Today, I am looking forward to a long conversation on the phone with him. He is eager and excited to talk about all of this and my heart is expanding with joy at the mere thought of sharing this with him.

For those of you with open doors and who would like to know more about my work, here is the link to the magazine interview.

Remember, it is important to share yourself freely, be grateful always, love joyfully and accept all things graciously. Leave your door open.

Be Brave

Just for today…remind yourself when your light shines into darker corners it sends darkness scattering for safety. When this occurs know that it has nothing to do with you. However, depending on your reaction to it, it might be that it is reflecting the darkness still residing in you. Spend more time focused on healing Self through the process and give less focus to those who have scattered. Know with certainty than when you deal with your own dark little corners within you will be focused in an appropriate direction and moving back into alignment with your authentic power. We all have the same opportunities. We all receive the same gifts of opportunity. Give yourself the dignity of your own efforts. Some will. Some won’t. It matters not what others choose. It matters most what you choose. Just be brave, take heart and know you are being afforded the opportunity for growth and expansion. When all is said and done, a shiny new you–stronger, better, bolder and brighter than before will emerge. There is nothing on this planet like you. Cherish it. Nurture it. Love it.
