What is “Divine Timing?”

When I work with clients in a private mediumship session, some will want to ask questions about their life direction and are seeking some intuitive insight.  I often encourage my clients to trust in “Divine timing.” What exactly does that mean?

As human beings, we often have set ideas in our mind about when things should happen–and even how.  When things do not go the way we had planned or envisioned we may get discouraged, or even downright depressed depending on the circumstances and our individual personalities and patterns.  We often get timelines in our minds about things such as being married or having children by a certain age.  Or perhaps we have a certain salary in our head that we should be earning by the time we reach a certain age.  We have a lot of “shoulds” in our minds–whether conscious or unconscious.  As I’ve heard it said, we need to stop “shoulding” all over ourselves!

We naturally derive such ideas for our lives through our own family members–either the way they themselves have lived or are living, or by what they tell us we “should” (there’s that word again!) be doing.  And let’s admit it, many of us are molded and influenced for better or worse by the omnipresent media stories and images–of people doing, achieving, and “being.” These people, mind you, often live in a rather isolated reality that is nothing like what the majority of us have ever experienced.  They are famous, wealthy, privileged, or being raised by family members  who are those things.  But if we can’t gauge our progress or success by those around us, how do we get a sense that we are on the right track?

This is where developing our own “inner compass” comes into play.  We need to get a better sense of who we are as unique individuals–souls–with a unique path, purpose, and desire.  After all “success” is a very subjective term, and to think we are all content or happy with the same kinds of lives is silly.  We need to allow ourselves to view what seem like “mistakes” as part of our soul journey, and try to learn from them instead of dwelling upon or beating ourselves up over them.   But most of all, we need to TRUST that God/Universe/Source has a greater plan for us than our current struggles. When we begin to trust that things are unfolding as they are meant to for us, we are more tolerant of  what may seem like “obstacles” on our paths.  It’s  often the case that we are not being “held back” from something we desire; we are instead being “redirected” and placed on a path to something that will ultimately be much more rewarding–but we can’t see that yet. If we accept that what we want will come in “Divine timing” we can more easily go with the flow and enjoy life–one day at a time.

Spirit is Always Working on Our Behalf

In loving memory of our sweet Tinkerbell Valentine Hunter November 2009-February 2, 2017

We often don’t see or feel how Spirit is working in our lives when we are in the midst of stress or sorrow. I am my own case in point. I have felt my mother’s presence more than usual lately, not really knowing why. Our sweet little Lemon Beagle Tinkerbell has had health challenges most of her life.  We noticed a significant decline over the past few months and suddenly she seemed particularly distressed.The other night, I stayed up with her late into the evening. As I sat with her, prayed, and comforted her, I became aware of movement and shadows out of the corner of my eye. I strongly felt my mother in Spirit near me. The next morning before heading to the vet I felt compelled to post a video on my Facebook Page about a Spirit cat in Heaven talking to her “mom” from the Rainbow Bridge–the place our pets in Spirit meet us when we cross over.  I was not even thinking about the imminent possibility of our own dog crossing over.  During the vet visit I saw via Xrays that our poor little dog was filled with cancer, along with other issues.  It was clear her precious days were numbered. I was devastated.  However as I look back on what I had been experiencing during Tinkerbell’s last couple of weeks here in the physical realm, I can say with certainty I was receiving comfort and reassurance  from the Spirit Realm.  We are never truly alone.     Blessings, ~Heather

What Spirit Thinks of Your Family Feud

Is your family feuding because you could not agree on where or how to bury a family member after their passing? Are you bitter over who got what, and other disagreements over assets, funerals, and what you think the passed loved one would have wanted?

Guess what? They know. They know about your fighting and who got what, and what happened (or didn’t) at their funeral or memorial service or celebration. The good, the not-so-good, and the sometimes downright ugly. Yes, they may talk about it. But I have to tell you, if you think they are going to come through and tell you to do anything about it, they won’t. At least, I’ve never heard that from Spirit. Most often, they say they are sad or disappointed over everyone’s fighting. The want people to heal, and make amends. They have lost all attachment to their “things” and the machinations of everyday life and funeral proceedings and so on. But they know who went out of their way to help. They know who comforted others, and who was rude. They know who stole from the family, and who made sacrifices. So, it’s up to us to be okay with things, make them right if need be, and move forward. Everything balances eventually, whether that happens here or in the Afterlife.

With love and blessings,
~Heather
