On today's blog I am sharing thoughts from two experts on how to gently handle yourself and move forward when the unanswerable question of "Why did my loved one have to die?"comes up. Author Mark Ireland, Co-Founder of Helping Parents Heal, and Ronnie Susan Walker, Founder and Executive Director of the Alliance of Hope for Suicide Loss Survivors share their knowledge here.Read More
In the last six weeks I have been inundated with questions from people who are driving themselves crazy, thinking their beloved Souls in Spirit must still be reacting to the bumps and jolts of life like humans do.
Why would that be? They’ve transitioned to a different realm, and believe, me, they’re different themselves.Read More
Have you ever wished someone would give you the answers to make your day a little easier? Here's a way to receive sage advice, instantly.
As I sat waiting for the stoplight to turn green, I considered which route would get me home the fastest. I was in a hurry, with a to-do list a mile long.
Turn left, and I’d risk getting stuck at a light.
Go straight and deal with multiple stops signs.
Which route would save me thirty seconds? I was getting more stressed by the nanosecond.
“Just relax a little, Mollie.”
What!? Who said that?
Are you frustrated and feeling alone because you haven't seen a sign from a deceased loved one? You are not alone! Let me explain what's going on.
“I haven't had one sign, visit, or sense of presence, not once since my husband died, and I'm beginning to think that's not normal. I would love for you to discuss this side of survivorship. No one ever wants to discuss it - like it's some ugly secret - but I have to believe others are in the same boat as me.” Kathy Joint –via Facebook
With Mother’s Day coming up, and Father’s Day right behind, I know there are a lot of heavy hearts out there. Whether you are missing a child or a parent who has died, it’s impossible to escape the feeling that something, or rather, someone, is missing.Read More
David Bowie, and now, Prince, wow! The last few months we have seen the passing of some of the most iconic talent of our time. It begs the question: What happens to celebrities when they die? Is Princess Diana still being hounded by the paparazzi in the hereafter?Read More
“I am outnumbered.”
The thought sat in my stomach as if I had swallowed a brick. Last weekend, I was standing in a popular bookstore, looking through the shelves for books about mediumship. I was on a mission to discover where people–everyday, average, bereaved people–are getting information about the afterlife.
The shelf was littered with books featuring dark covers with scary, transparent figures. Words like: ghost, demons, haunting, possession, psychic attack—everywhere.
My eyes searched for the books about Heaven.
Nearly all of them have a sky on the cover with radiant light beaming out—perhaps have you seen them? I picked a few up and flipped through them. More than one of them covered the topics of spirit release, ghost busting and negative entities.
Again, the heavy thought: “I am outnumbered. I cannot make a difference.”Read More
How well is your “trust” muscle working these days?
Feeling kind of weak from a lack of use? Or maybe it’s feeling strong from all that heavy lifting you’ve been doing?
Last week on my Facebook page I shared a picture with the words, “Every Soul has a unique plan and energy.” To me, that means that while our time on this Earth is deeply interconnected with others, we still have our own mission to fulfill and we must bring a one-of-a-kind energy (aka Soul) to accomplish that mission.Read More
Being a conduit of messages of healing and love for those who have passed on brings me back to the same emotional place, again and again, even after years of doing this work.
I usually get all broken up like this after doing many consecutive sessions with people who have lost a loved one unexpectedly or tragically. (Which is nearly everyone I work with.) This week it was triggered by a mother who lost a child she had devoted the last 10 years of her life protecting. It was followed by a question from a different mother who was deeply concerned her deceased son might...Read More
Dealing with personal regret after the passing of a loved one can sometimes cause crippling emotional pain. We all deal with self doubt, but a deep loss can take our minds into an abyss of despair as we question every action we took (or didn’t take) on behalf of the deceased. This is a common theme in the emails and private sessions I conduct with clients. But here is what I want you to know: Your deceased loved ones want to help you move past your pain.Read More
One of the most profound lessons I have learned working with the Souls in the hereafter is that the true gift of our human lives is finding love and joy in the present moment, while looking forward with hope.
We cannot escape loss and hardship while on this Earthly journey, but somehow adversity is followed by opportunity.
Looking forward with hope is a great challenge after a deep loss. Losses can take many forms in the passing of a loved one, a job, a relationshipRead More
Like it or not, the holidays are upon us! With a few days off this past weekend, I was able to spend time catching up with friends. There was a recurring theme of “holiday unrest” with many of my favorite people this year: families fighting over meaningless things, choosing to sit around and drink instead of help with dishes, and bringing up memories from 20 years ago that definitely should have been left alone. You know, the kind of family that puts the “fun" in dysfunction!Read More
I went to bed feeling heavy-hearted last night. Everywhere I turn messages of unrest, poverty and suffering are being shared. They are true reports, and as just one person, I feel a bit helpless in making a difference.
I saw this deeply moving photo journal of where children refugees are sleeping and it made me ache. (http://www.cnn.com/…/cnnphotos-syrian-children-refugees-sl…/) It reminded me of a book I read a few months ago called, "The Nightingale" by Kristin Hannah. The story profiles some of the suffering that the women and children in Europe experienced during World War Two. The refugee crisis we are facing now is not so different from the horrors Jewish children experienced during the Holocaust.Read More
While I was in Manchester, NH for a group reading, I received a message for bereaved parents Jon and Lois Kesty.
It went something like this:
I began to sense a young woman with me who indicated that she passed of an overdose. One of her messages was that her parents were using their voices to communicate help and hope to others.
Jon and Lois raised their hands, and said they recognized this communicator as their daughter, Sumner. I wouldn’t find out just how much good they are doing until after the group, when we sat down to talk.Read More
One of my favorite topics to dive into is this: During a connection with Spirit, what information provides solid evidence of the afterlife?
It gets kind of technical and qualifies as "shoptalk amongst mediums." But hey-this is good for you to know. If you are sitting for a reading by a medium who knows nothing about you, and you have a teenage son who passed, a validating message could be as simple as this: "I sense a young man in Spirit who loves you very dearly." Take it for what it is. For a professional medium, however, it is not enough.Read More
You might remember me mentioning that my ceiling collapsed last year due to a roof leak that went unnoticed while I was on a West Coast tour. After getting a new roof this summer, I am finally repairing the interior damage.
The entry and kitchen are getting some new drywall, fresh paint, a window, and I figured while everything is ripped to shreds, I might as well replace my ailing tile countertops. (click through to read on)Read More
In today’s video blog, Psychic Medium Mollie Morning Star interviews Madison, a young girl whose father passed from cancer two years ago. The video is intended to help children, but can also be an important tool for adults to understand the grief process from a child's perspective. Madison gives her honest answers on several important questions grieving children face such as:
- What’s kept you going on bad days?
- How do feel now compared to two years ago?
- What was most helpful in the beginning right after your Dad’s passing?
- What signs have you seen from your Dad?
Madison’s answers are fresh and inspiring for everyone who has lost someone dear to them and needs help rebuilding a joy-filled life.Read More
All bereaved parents have bittersweet moments when they look around at their other children, or their nieces and nephews, and see them getting taller. Or they watch their children's classmates graduate and get married and wonder, "What would my child look like now? Would he still laugh the same way? What would she be doing with her life?" The very thought of this can cause profound sadness.Read More
Few things are more trying than persevering through loss. Every time you make a choice to keep going after a set-back, you are one step closer to realizing your dream--perhaps that's peace, healing or to experience joy again. I was incredibly inspired by Jason Day's life story after his tremendous win at the PGA tournament this week in my hometown.Read More
