Spirit Presence

evidence of spirit

Spirit never ceases to amaze me!  Evidence is always offered to help loved ones know there is no death—only transformation.  Names and dates are what Spirit offers to acknowledge those still in physical or to identify who they are with in non-physical.  I think the most amazing evidence Spirit tends to offer is when they prove they are still very much a part of everyone’s life and know exactly what is going on.  For instance, in many sessions I will be given names of people who seem rather inconsequential to whomever I am reading.  However, it turns out that they were just talking with the person, or emailing/texting them within days prior to the session.  Spirit loves to prove they were standing right by their loved one’s side as the communication took place and that they are still very much a part of their daily lives.  Amazing!  It shows we are never abandoned, always cared for and forever loved.

BE Happy

BE Happy

For too long we have believed happiness is external.  We will only be happy if our circumstances change, or people behave more appropriately, or if we finally obtain our heart’s desires.  We wonder why it is so hard.  We ask why happiness is so elusive.  In order for true happiness to manifest it must come through us and from us first.  That’s it. That’s all.  We either choose to open our inner door and effuse everything we see, hear, touch, taste and smell with our unbridled joy—or we don’t.  When we rely on external experiences to cause happiness within us the results are mediocre at best.  If we throw open our door of happiness then only happiness will result which changes experiences yet to be realized into happy ones as well.  Then, and only then will happy, external circumstances heighten our already existing happiness. It is counter-productive to rely on them to CAUSE our happiness. It’s just so simple.  BE happy.  BE happy for no apparent reason.  It changes everything. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author & Spiritual Teacher

Know Self

ara when-you-know-yourself-you-are-empowered-when-you-accept-yourself-you-are-invincible-quote-1

I am ever so grateful to know Self! I have no need to prove who I am to others. I have no need to point fingers and cry foul in my indignation and justification in how others view me. Remember who you are. Love who you are. Let others’ perspectives of you melt away. BE your Self. You are beauty, magnificence, power and love in exquisite motion. ~ Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author, Spiritual Teacher

Spirit Signs

ara signs-from-spirit (1)

Spirit Signs

Many of you have received signs from spirit and are aware that loved ones are eternally with us. Just as many others receive signs and dismiss them as ‘coincidence’. Still others are waiting for their sign they are not alone.

It might help you to understand that our loved ones in spirit have transitioned from physical form to non-physical. They are still the pure energy they were when on this plane just minus the physical body. Given there is not one place where energy is not it stands to reason our loved ones are ever-present, co-existing with us and not somewhere far away.

It is also helpful to know that there is no such thing as ‘coincidence’. A ‘coincidence’ is simply unaware thoughts meeting their manifestation. Therefore, the signs you may be dismissing are actually direct signs from spirit. A sign that lets you know you are not forgotten, still cherished and most of all loved.

Spirit will use the path of least resistance in order to convey their message. In other words, whatever is already around you that can quickly and easily be absorbed into your conscious awareness. Sometimes it is a feather—because birds are in your immediate environment. Sometimes it is a penny or dime—because loose change abounds. Sometimes—it will be an arbitrary call on your phone or lights going on and off. Televisions are known to go on after you shut them off. Electronics can certainly behave erroneously without a seeming cause. Yes, spirit will use whatever is around you to let you know they are still with you.

Often people will dismiss the signs because they believe, or have been told, that sometimes a feather is just a feather, happening upon pennies or dimes is just a coincidence and glitches with electronics are due to faulty wiring or lack of signals. The only way to tell the difference between a spirit sign and ‘common reasoning’ is in the way it makes you feel when the sign is noticed. If you know you have been asking for a sign then it is a sign. If a sign makes you remember a fond memory then it is from spirit. Pay attention to how it all makes you feel instead of allowing your limited belief structure to drive the bus. Be prudent and exhaust all the avenues to debunk the occurrence if you must as that will dispel your doubt. Just remember, there is always more going on than your senses can possibly tell you.

For those of you still waiting to experience a spirit sign take heart. Signs are present virtually in every moment. When the time is perfect your spirit sign will venture into your awareness. Have faith, trust that it can happen and be joyful that it will happen.

Believe. Trust. Most of all, thank your loved ones for letting you know they are not gone. They have not left you alone, abandoned. They walk with you in each moment.

Many of us have had the experience of receiving signs from spirit. I would love to hear what your signs have been. Let’s hear from you! ~Ara Parisien, International Medium, Author, Spiritual Teacher

Food for thought on Affirmations

ara affirmations

Time and time again people ask me about affirmations.  Do they work?  Sure!  They ‘can’ work if your vibrational alignment is in keeping with the words of the affirmation. Saying you are healthy as an affirmation when you are not well typically vetoes any positive result. Why?  Because your vibrational alignment often doesn’t match the words you are speaking.  You can ‘say’ all the right words about being healthy but if your vibration is screaming there is a lack of well being or you ‘really, really want’ to be well then the vibration does not match the affirmation.  Affirmations must be true to you in order for them to wield any power whatsoever.  Start gently.  Perhaps say things like, “I am open to experiencing my wellness’—which typically would be a true statement because you ARE open to it.  You can also try “I am eager to experience my wellness,” which lends itself to an excitement that will lift your vibration to a place where the Universe can respond with a little more of what you desire.  Affirmations are not a quick fix.  Saying them over and over needing them to work is counterproductive. Remember, when the Universe responds it is responding to a vibration—not just nice words. One should always ensure the affirmation is in direct correlation to the truth they perceive within themselves.  When it is in alignment the results are always powerful and more in keeping with what you want. ~  Ara Parisien,International Medium, Author & Spiritual Teacher

All There Is…Is Love

 

Ara Kerry

On Sept 29th 2017 the unthinkable…the unimaginable…happened.  One is never truly prepared to deal with the loss, the emotions, the pain or the numbness of mind when you hear the words, “Sorry, we did everything we could.  Unfortunately, she passed away.”

Even though the doctor on the phone was still talking I was barely able to focus on what he was saying.  He was detailing every procedure they performed on my aunt, every result, how the team of 12 doctors worked on her heart tirelessly until the heart itself could sustain nothing more.  It simply stopped beating.  He assured me she was not in pain.  He told me she went very gently.  I recall praising the doctor and his associates for going above and beyond in trying to help her.  He passed me onto a social worker to help me think more clearly regarding the steps to come.  I recall just going through the motions but that was okay as that was all I could do and thankfully, all that was expected in the moment.

In the days that followed I did what I could within my foggy mind.  I called the Funeral Home, I went to the hospital to collect her effects, I visited her apartment to search for the all important Will and I fed her cat, Punky.  Punky meant the world to my aunt and was her constant companion.  It was good he was with her as it provided her with the only source of companionship in this world.  She shut everyone who loved her out of her life for years.  Myself included.  Now Punky was the only thing left and he was 18 years old, skin and bones and could barely walk.  I found him curled up on my aunt’s bed patiently waiting for her to return.  When I looked into his eyes it seemed we both knew it was an impossibility.  I stroked his frail body and he nuzzled my hand.  I could feel his bones and more importantly I could feel his little soul.  I told him he would soon be with his mom.  A mobile vet service came two days later and lovingly released him.  I take comfort in knowing that somewhere in non-physical my aunt and Punky are frolicking in sheer joy.

My aunt had a very difficult life and suffered mental health issues which caused a level of stubbornness and paranoia.  She preferred to isolate herself and did what she could to supplement her monthly payments from the federal government.  One way among many of ‘supplementing’ was, as I found out, collecting empty bottles and cans to return for cash.  My heart broke.  She had family who loved her yet she chose this.  I live in the same city and could have easily helped her out.  Her two daughters live in Ontario but even so far away would have moved mountains to help her.  She wanted none of it.  She disowned us all.  Until that is, September 25th.  She sent me a message on Facebook and left her phone number for me to call her.

I called my aunt that very day and she spoke to me like nothing untoward had ever happened between us.  I let her talk.  She spoke of her cat, she spoke of GMOs, she spoke of diet and medications.  She never spoke of needing help. She didn’t have to.  The mere fact she reached out to me spoke volumes.  At the end of the two hour conversation I said to her that it was evident she did not want to be alone anymore.  Fortunately, she has family who love her and we will all pull together to help her move forward in her next steps toward wellness.  She cried.  I cried.  I told her I loved her.  She said she loved me too.  Three days later she died.

As a medium I see virtually all the time how those who are readying to make their transition ‘know’ they are about to leave.  My aunt was one of those people.  She knew.  She reached out.  Fortunately, our differences, our needing to be right in what had gone on before, melted in the love we felt for each other.  This is the second passing in my family where bygones, no matter how vile and vicious in the moment, simply didn’t matter. All that matters is the love. Love is all there is.  I am ever so fortunate to have been given the privilege to voice that love.  Some never get the chance.  Not having the chance though does not mean the opportunity is forever gone.  Our loved ones never die.  They transform.  When we deal with our loved ones in Spirit we are dealing with the very best aspects of them—which is all Love, and their humanness no longer requires forgiveness, frustration, resentment etc.  Our relationships continue on even though one is in Spirit and one is still in the physical.  The relationship continues on but in a different way.  Allow yourself to speak to your loved one in Spirit.  They do hear you and do respond.  Allow your relationships to heal because they can and they will. Spirit does not want you holding onto whatever pain or anguish their frail human traits caused into being. They get it now.  So should you.

Through these past few weeks I have been in awe of my family and friends, including my aunt’s two daughters, who worked tirelessly to make the going easier.  Even my ex-husband rolled up his shirt sleeves and was there to help over several days in honour of my aunt whom he had known for years.  I will never find the words to express how grateful I am to all of you.  I smile in knowing that it is the love for each other, the caring, the honouring and the remembering that shows us who we are, what we are made of and what is in us to give.

All there is and all we are….is Love

It is the only thing that truly matters.
