My Spirit has Awakened!

I have been experiencing a quiet period in my life; a time for reflection and a period of wondering where life is leading me.  I seem to have been in the doldrums as many changes take place in my work and personal life.  Changes to relationships, changes to my views of life in general.  Reflecting on my need to grow spiritually, and yet remaining in the same place day after day.  Yes, I guess it is the spiritual doldrums that have lasted longer than normal for me.  I've always experienced a time where my spiritual connection was quiet, dormant for a short time as I grew at a soul level...


And, now at this very moment it seems that I've come alive once again.  I welcome this feeling; which has been so long awaited.  Early this morning as I lay in bed contemplating my direction in life with my Angel of Wisdom, it all became very clear.  I have three areas of growth to concentrate on and learn.  The first and most important to me is learning more about healing energy and how to access that gift more fully.  It is a gift that we all have been given at birth.  The second area of growth that I want to concentrate on is accessing the energy of abundance, and understanding that will help me on the Earthly plane.  The third and most necessary area that I want to grow in is my spiritual connection to my Angels, Guides, and Family members who have crossed over.  Although, I feel that crossing over is not a good term, I feel that they are still very near to us, and by our sides every day.  Yes, I feel spiritually alive once again, and looking forward to wonderful days filled with light and love.  Days with Angel whispers and awe inspiring moments that I will cherish as they guide me on my next adventure with them.


I know that I now have a team of Angels who will help me in those areas.  I am thrilled and look forward to our journey together.  They will answer all my questions, and they will help me to grow in ways that are beyond my imagination.  Today marks a day of new beginnings, a day where I leave the spiritual doldrums behind and walk forward with great expectations!


I encourage you to reach out to your Angels and Guides.  Speak to them and hear their whisper... They are waiting for you...

I Can Feel the Garden Angels and Their Excitement

I can feel the Garden Angels and their excitement now that Spring is well on its way in the mid-west.  How excited they are with the coming warm weather and the awakening of the lovely flowering trees, the majestic oaks, the graceful weeping willows, and the grasses and wild flowers that dot the country side.  I can see them dancing; their long beautiful hair floating in the air as they move gently to the whisperings of the morning doves and robins who have returned from their winter hiatus. 


The Garden Angels are very special to me.  In my younger days I was an avid gardener.  It brought me such pleasure being close to nature and all its glory.  I loved spending the day in the garden, tending to the garden beds, listening to my fountain  and wind chimes as I worked.  Those days remain so very fresh in my memory.  But, life changes and now I am left with my memories...


I am much older now, and live in an apartment.  My garden consists of containers on my balcony deck.  However, that doesn't stop me from enjoying those flowers just as much as my garden.  I vow that someday I will once again have a beautiful flower garden and fountain.  Perhaps I won't physically be able to do as much as I did before in that beautiful garden that I have in my mind.  However, my plans include enlisting the help of a gardener.  I can see the Garden Angels smile and nod their heads as they whisper softly, "Yes, you shall have the garden of your dreams, and we will be there with you..." and, they dance on their hair flying gently in the soft wind, their beautiful sparkly gowns swirl as they dance.  And, I am filled with hope and wonder for the garden that will one day be mine.


You see Spring and the Garden Angels go hand in hand; if you are a gardener you understand.  I know you are filled with anticipation of the blossoms to come, I know that you are waiting in anticipation for the day you are working in your garden - close to the glories of nature and the wonder that fills your soul as you tend to your garden.  Remember to listen for your Garden Angels as they whisper to you.  See them in your mind's eye, and your spirit will be filled with their love, and your garden too will be filled with love, and blossoms for all to see and enjoy...

Silence Speaks Volumes

April is an extremely difficult month for me...it is the month thirteen years ago that my husband, the love of my life passed away.  No matter how hard I try, or how much time passes, this month brings heartache and pain.  Pain and grief that I fight so hard to forget, pain and grief that is just below the surface of my existence...  I've learned that ignoring it doesn't work, so I fight until I can't ignore it any longer and succumb to the reality of my existence without him...  It is a sad time in my life just as Mother Nature is awakening all of her beauty to surround us once again with new life...


One would think that after all this time that I would be able to cope.  What I'm finding is that everything is coming full circle once again.  Perhaps, just perhaps we are meant to remember.  Perhaps, just perhaps we need to remember to keep that spiritual connection alive.  I need more than anything to keep my love connection with him strong.  And, this is how I will cope with the loss of the love of my life - I will stay strong, and connected; feeling the pain and yet knowing that our connection will bring me through to the other side of grief once again for he will never leave me.  The love of my life will be with me always... 


I find that the Angels are silent as I write; I sense that they feel my pain.  You see, they have been with me on my journey through the good times and the bad.  Through the joy of love, and the pain of loss.  They help and guide me, and their silence is comforting - knowing that they are there, knowing that they have been there all along is a comfort.  They are steadfast in their support of our connection, and then, their silence is broken as they softly whisper, "Love is all that truly exists, it can never be broken, your love connection with Eddie is alive and well.  We are with you always, we will continue to guide you as you continue on your journey... We will help you remove the sadness that you are feeling and fill your heart and soul with a love so strong that nothing will be able to break the bond that you share with Eddie...", and they are silent once again...


Remember that your Angels are with you always even when they are silent...sometimes silence is an answer, sometimes silence is their way of connecting through your difficult time, sometimes  their silence speaks volumes...

Spiritual Adventures

Our last mediumship class was yesterday.  Susan Sanderford did an amazing job providing us with direction, inspiration, and sharing her knowledge and journey with all of us.  One thing that struck me was where we were all at on our spiritual adventure or journey.  There were people who were more advanced and their ability to connect with Spirit was an inspiration.  There were also people who were more challenged by the exercises that we did; however we all shared this journey together.  We listened and helped each other as we progressed in our knowledge of mediumship.


I felt that I needed to take this class, I don't know where it will lead me.  What I do know that it confirmed a lot of what I have been doing all along.  It confirmed how to communicate with the spirit world; which includes our loved ones that have passed, our guides, and our Angels.  And, perhaps that is just what I needed to know.  Perhaps, just perhaps confirmation and validation was what Spirit wanted me to receive from Susan... I do know that these synchronicities are part of everyone's spiritual development, orchestrated by our loved ones, guides and Angels, and that fills my heart with peace and joy!  And, that my friends is how I felt yesterday - I was filled with peace and joy!


I can't wait for the next steps as I travel that spiritual path filled with light and love...  Always remember that Love is truly the only thing that exists, it is the only thing that really matters.  And, the Angels whisper, "Yes..."

Ebb and Flow of Spirit

This is going to be a brief post - however brief; spirit continues to nudge me to write about this.  A few days ago I chose a tarot card that mentioned "ebb and flow."  It was about how we must learn to go with the ebb and flow of life... the good times, the bad times, and the in between...  That stuck in my head; although it wasn't about life it was about spirit.  You see sometimes I feel that I have lost that spiritual connection.  It seems like I can go along and be so very connected to my Angels, to Spirit, and to my Guides and then suddenly they are silent...  So to apply ebb and flow to that thought makes perfect sense to me.  I now understand that there are quiet times; which are learning periods.  So, there is truly an ebb and flow to our spiritual growth and journey...


There will be times of deep connection, and times of quiet and contemplation.  Oh how I love the times of deep connection as they make my heart sing and bring joy to my life!  I must learn, as we all must, to also enjoy the quiet times, as those are also so very important because they help us immensely to grow in spirit.  I have vowed to embrace the quiet times with learning and contemplation, and look forward to the next connection with my Angels, Spirit, and Guides...


There is truly an ebb and flow to our spiritual growth - to our journey.... and the Angels are smiling now... whispering, "Yes..."

My New Angel - Starlight

I had my mediumship class yesterday afternoon, and it was fantastic!  The class has some amazing people attending, and we are enjoying this adventure together.  We are doing practice exercises that help us connect to that other magnificent dimension - they can be quite emotional.  However, I am enjoying the journey, and feel that this is something that I was meant to do.  Perhaps just for myself... whether I will ever be able or care to do readings for others remains to be seen.  Right now I feel that it is to help me to grow spiritually - many lessons to be learned and spiritual growth are on the horizon.  Spirit truly is amazing... 


I'd like to share one example of this.  We are supposed to practice connecting and receiving messages.  One evening as I was working on connecting I asked if the Angels had anything for me; any message, any direction to give me.  I wasn't disappointed.  After a short time a picture popped into my mind.  All I could see was a hand reaching out to me, and an Angel presence who was dressed in a white robe with small golden bells around the bottom of her robe.  She had a sash around her waist which had a bigger golden bell on the end of the sash.  I had never seen this Angel before.  I wanted to see her face but I couldn't.  I wanted to know her name but I couldn't hear a name.  I stayed with this vision, concentrating on it and asking those questions.  Gradually her face appeared to me.  She had lovely straight black hair, and she wore a beautiful golden netting cap; which had rubies upon it.  She had piercing blue eyes, and I could feel her love.


As I continued to ask questions, she told me that she was the Angel who brought me to Earth, and she would be the Angel who would return me to the Heavenly Realm when the time came...  I understood and was amazed at seeing and hearing from her.  Although I did not have a name, I continued to concentrate and the name, "Starlight" popped in my head...  So, Starlight is in my life, and has been for a long time. 


Every time I think of her I smile inside and out.  She connects me to my inner-child, the whimsical part of me, the part of me that loves colors, the part of me that loves creating, and she brings me peace, hope, and love.


Try connecting with your Angels - you will not be disappointed - Angels Surround you!

Two Great Oracle Card Decks - Check Them Out :)

Here are two great oracle card decks that I've been using - very inspirational as well as creative and beautiful!  Following is a quote on how to use Collette's deck:  "Unlike other decks, where multiple cards can make up a reading, this one is designed to facilitate a dialogue between you and those in Spirit as you choose one card at a time to answer a question you have posed.  You can ask the question of a loved one who has crossed over, or your angel guides, or whatever light being or beings you wish to consult.  the answer will always be from a collective of loving allies - a "We" or "Us" - communicating to you through the All-Loving Consciousness that is Spirit, who unifies their voices into one."  I use these daily, and love them!





Another wonderful deck is Gabrielle's deck the artwork is fantastic and is done by Micaela Ezra; the artwork is inspirational in itself!  There are 52 cards.  "...offers spiritual guidance to help you find strength when you are down, synchronicity and support when you are lost, safety in the face of uncertainty, and joy in all circumstances....Surrender to the guidance that the cards provide, practice patience and peace, and trust that the Universe has your back."




Check these decks out, and see if they resonate with you - I was attracted to them, and find them a great way to start my morning!

My Angel of Wisdom and Knowledge


I mentioned the Mediumship Class in my previous post.  One exercise we did yesterday was to contact one of our Angels.  This was accomplished through a process of quieting your mind and going to your heart space to connect with Spirit. (This is just a brief explanation as the process is more involved than that, and too lengthy to go into here.)  The picture above, is a picture that I painted many years ago - when I first began my journey with the Angels.  She is my Angel of Wisdom and Knowledge.  She is one of the Ancient Ones, and she has always been with me.  During the class she is the Angel that came through, and her message to me was to put her picture above my desk where I do my writing.  So, right after the class I did just that - before she was in my dining room high above my hutch.  I put her there after I moved here two years ago.  I'd glance at her picture every now and then...  Now, with her picture over the desk that I write from I can definitely feel the change in atmosphere - I can feel her presence and her love.  And, I know that she will be helping me with my writing.  I am beginning another book, and I have been reaching out to the Angelic Realm for assistance... how appropriate for her to come through yesterday, and request that I put her picture here.  Always remember, Angels are those unseen yet present magnificent beings of light and love.  Spirit never disappoints!  I am looking forward to writing that book now more than ever; with the Angel of Wisdom and Knowledge by my side!

Smiles and Earth Angels

I'm taking a Mediumship class, and it is amazing.  It is being taught by Susan Sanderford, and I'm loving every minute of the class.  The reason I'm taking the class is to open myself to spiritual communication on a higher level. The class is also a confirmation of what I have personally been doing for several years now.  If you ever have the chance to take a class on Mediumship I encourage you to do so...you will find your heart open up to Spirit, and you will know, trust, and believe in making your spiritual connection as you travel on your journey here on Earth...


When you make that spiritual connection it touches every part of your life.  For example:  during the week I kept hearing the word, "Smiles."  I also saw pictures in my mind's eye of children smiling, friends smiling, and strangers smiling.  And, I thought there's a message here, and what a beautiful message it is.  Smiles come from the heart, they come from a place of love and caring - yes, even from strangers.  Think of how you feel when someone smiles at you, with you, for you... it is a wonderful heartfelt feeling that surrounds and enfolds you.  It is the love in a simple smile that may make your day.


I find the smile from a stranger is a special gift from the Divine.  It is a gift that connects us heart to heart, and soul to soul.  It is a gift out of the blue, smiles are gifts of love.  Very often when a stranger smiles at me I think to myself...that this could be an Earth Angel...  Perhaps, a silly thought...but I truly believe in Earth Angels.  I believe that all of us at one time or another are Earth Angels.  It can be on those occasions when it calls for more than a smile.  It might be helping an elderly neighbor carry their groceries in the house.  It could be helping a stranger find their lost pet.  It could be helping someone pick up something that they have dropped.  Any act of kindness large or small makes you an Earth Angel.  From smiles to assistance - to caring - to listening - yes, any act of kindness...makes you an Earth Angel!  What a glorious thought!

Check out my new book!

Just published my new book, "Angelic Word Pictures: Food for your Spirit...Mini-Meditations to Inspire."


https://www.amazon.com/Angelic-Word-Pictures-Mini-Meditations-Inspire/dp/1984162187/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1517071326&sr=8-2&keywords=Paula+Ezop
You are probably wondering how these inspirational word pictures came about, and just what a, “word picture” is. Let me explain. I am part of the Casa de Santa Maria healing energy network. The Casa de Santa Maria is located in San Luis, Colorado. It is a non-denominational healing center to connect with the Divine (www.casadesantamaria.org). It is there that anyone can request prayers and long distance healing. Each week the members of the healing network receive information on who they will be praying for that week. There is one person who is in charge of assigning and sending out this list. One day out of the blue after receiving the list, I felt compelled to relay a message from the Angels to the person who sends the list. I’ve never been compelled to do this before. My angelic messages were always just for me… Amazingly, the messages that they gave me were in picture form. They send me a lovely picture, and then they help me to express what their beautiful pictures mean. My dear friend called them, “word pictures.” That is truly what they are, “word pictures” that were meant for both of us. At first I was reluctant to send the message to her, but the Angels were very insistent. Well, that is how the, “word pictures” began. Then, along the way I knew that I had to share them with you… These inspirational messages are written for you as a form of mini-meditations – food for thought – and a way to connect to the Angels and Spirit. They will inspire you, give you peace, put a smile on your face, and warm your heart… you will see for yourself the serendipitous nature and magic within these mini-meditations or messages as you choose just the right message at just the right time in your life to focus on. You will see that Spirit never disappoints…
