Gratitude with Big Jim

I look back at the years since I registered the Soul Kisses domain name and I am in awe of what has transpired - the transformation has been nothing short of miraculous for me and I'm sure, for many of you!  When I began typing this, my dad, Big Jim, made his presence known and has a few words for each of us...

Message from Big Jim

I've been watching - and not from "afar" as so many of you think. Someone, who shall remain nameless...  recently made a comment when he learned that my mother-in-law is spending a lot of time in the spirit world - one foot in the physical world and one foot in the spirit, so to speak.  She was insisting that it was almost noon, when the physical world time was only 9am.  He commented that it is good to know that there is only a few hours difference between physical world time and spirit world time.  He wasn't far off the mark.  Its all a perception.

I, along with my fellow spirits of this "other side" of living, are with you and we have a request of each of you:

We ask that ya'll laugh and really LIVE more!  Worry is robbing you of what you really want in your lives - let it go.  Breathe in the air around you.  In my day, "Stop and Smell the Roses" meant something.  I've seen you people with your computers and phones - even my kid here, Kate, stops to wait for spell check when she's hand writing something.  I always get a good laugh when she does that, but I digress...

We ask that you really live, while you're in the physical - there isn't one of us here that regrets having fun - the wish is always that we laughed and enjoyed life more.  You may feel that you don't have much to laugh about, but then again, everything is a perception.

This is an exciting time as the light is revealed there on Mother Earth.  Embrace all that you are grateful for and lift your heart in laughter and joy.  Let your heart sing - out loud!  We'll be right there with you!

~ Big Jim

On this day of Thanksgiving - no matter where you are in the world - I send love and light to you in gratitude of our being a part of one another's lives.  Sending a cyber hug - place your left hand on your right shoulder and your right hand on your left shoulder - {{{{{{HUG}}}}}}

Mercury in Retrograde - How can it be Wonderful?

This week opens the door to the future by our choices of this moment. On Thursday, November 24 Mercury goes retrograde along with a new moon partial solar eclipse. What does this mean for the humans of Mother Earth?

The shift that has been affecting our planetary collective consciousness has increased exponentially since 11-11-11.  It is a magical time to discern the bigger picture - a time to step outside the emotion of stress and worry and view your life as an observer and look at the bigger picture and claim your power as the Limitless Spiritual Being that you are!

Ask yourself:  What is working and what isn't?  In what areas of your life are you happy?  In what areas are you unhappy?  What is going on in your life that makes your heart sing?  What is going on in your life that is preventing your heart from singing?  What do you really want your life to look like???

Here in the US we are preparing for Thanksgiving - a time of gratitude and reflection.

So many of us are just getting by - fulfilling all that we can on our "to do" list then falling into bed exhausted. We are surviving, trying to squeeze in some joy when we can, but mostly struggling to breathe under the mountain of stress, worry and fear that we have accepted as our burden.

Now is the time to and take your power of creation Back and Keep that Power!

Mercury becoming retrograde and the solar eclipse give new meaning to the first day of the rest of your life!

Mercury is the planet of time, communication and commerce.  Mercury in Retrograde affects earthly time and communication on every level possible.  Make it work for you!  With excitement embrace this as a time of renewal, reflection and re-invention of your life!

Use the energy of Mercury in Retrograde and the Solar Eclipse as your allies to show you the shadows of fear that hide in your heart - face that fear, disconnect from it and heal it.  Discern what no longer serves you and let it go to reveal what is of your highest good.  This is an exciting time of co-creation with All That Is to re-invent your life - letting go of what has blocked you from receiving your highest good so that now, in this time of enlightenment, you let go of stress, worry and fear and step into your power as the limitless spiritual being that you are manifesting as your reality... your heaven on earth!

Call on your entourage of assistants of the angelic realm and claim the power of this moment to create the change that you desire. Embrace all that you are grateful for and shift your energy to the unobstructed vision of love.

My dad, Big Jim, repeatedly tells me that we don't have a clue as to how powerful we really are.  Know that your heart light is activated and allow that light to shine brightly illuminating your path.

I hold each of you reading this in the light of powerful, whole and complete.

I invite you to take my hand, and together as one, with all the ascended masters who have walked the soils of Mother Earth, with our angelic entourage of angels, guides, teachers and deceased loved ones, As One with God... we claim our power and create our heaven on earth! Collectively as a group we dissipate the darkness of fear and flood our planet with love and light - shifting the space in which we reside to the higher vibration of love source energy!

You can Do IT!  You are Not alone!  We are One Together!

If you need additional help in actively taking part in this shift into fearless consciousness, the Soul Kisses website is a plethora of tools and recommendations to help make your life path easier.

In love and light,

The Veil Thins...

Since last week's 11/11/11 energy shift, you may be "feeling" different.  My dad, Big Jim, would call it "something else."  That "something else" is the thinning of the veil between our world and that of the angelic. You may be feeling the presence of your deceased loved ones more strongly while you're awake or dreaming about them while sleeping. You may be feeling an excitement of creative ideas surging through your thoughts as you breathe in deeply.  You may be feeling a sense of struggle from deep within to expand your heart to the "something more" that your inner light declares is available to you.  Know that the "struggle" is the fear of the physical world trying to hold you back - don't let it!

You and I are on this exciting path of spiritual enrichment and enlightenment - we all are!  In my world there are wonderful, exciting things happening while around me there are still atrocities, trauma and pain of the physical world that are often difficult to comprehend.

It is a choice as to whether we fall prey to the clutches of the fear filled negativity. I am human, just like you, and at times I do succumb to feelings of being overwhelmed and helpless, but then I pull out my tool arsenal and hug to me every angel around and shift my energy out of the fear and into a state of balance.  Some times it is harder to do this than others...

We all have the ability to sift through the negativity and fear to reconnect with the divine light of love essence that is our being-ness, but some times with just a little boost, input or guidance from another human its easier.  That's why the Soul Kisses website is here for you.

Back in the late nineties I was unable to find answers on the internet to questions I had with regard to my spiritual path.  So in 2000 I created the Soul Kisses website to help hold the light for others with a plethora of information.  Now that information has grown to include the tools I use to make my journey here on Mother Earth easier as well as recommendations for the work of others. The angels are guiding me to put together bundles of services and products to help make this time of transformation easier. The bundles will be available on Black Friday, November 25 (with a sneak peak in November 24's newsletter).

As the light continues to shift the energy of the planet, you will be coming into contact with more and more like minded people.  For some of you, I know this is an answer to your prayers, because you have no one to talk to about your spiritual path.  You may find yourself as a "way shower" - a "keeper of the light" - to help others find their spiritual way.  Know that our "spiritual way" is defining our physical reality.  If you would like to use information or tools you find at the Soul Kisses website for a class or gathering, contact me and we'll work out a plan to use the materials.

The veil is thinning exponentially - you know this - you feel this, even though you may not understand it.  When you feel the presence of your loved ones and/or angels of the angelic realm, acknowledge their presence and allow yourself to experience what comes to you.  Ask them the questions of your heart and allow yourself to experience the answers.

We are all One with God - One with each other...

In love and light,

Dementia/Alzheimer's touches everyone...

My grandmother is now 90 years old and lives in an assisted living facility.  Mondays and Fridays have been our scheduled day to talk on the phone for years, plus any other day during the week that I feel the urge to call her.  ...and we're talkers... This is why I don't schedule any client appointments on Monday or Friday mornings before 11am my time.

Recently when I called her, I woke her from a cat nap and when I asked her what she was doing, she told me she was trying to decide if she was going to call her mother or wait till later.  Grandma explained to me that her mother goes to church in the mornings and she wanted to make sure she was home before calling.

Grandma's mother, my Grandma Hailey, died in 1984.  My immediate reaction was a human one - my heart broke and I began to cry.  As I listened to her indecision as to whether to call Grandma Hailey now or wait, I swallowed my tears then told her that maybe she should wait a while to make sure she was home.

The phone call with grandma sent me into a tailspin of human emotions.  I'm clearly grieving this change in her and when I cry, the wracking sobs come from the very cells of my body.  I may only cry for a couple of minutes, but my eyes become so tender that light hurts them and I feel completely drained and exhausted. After we got off the phone I allowed myself to cry for a few minutes, then I washed my face and moved on with my day with the pain of this change hovering over me until I stepped out of the emotions and into the place of observer.

From the open heart of observer I connected with grandma's higher self.

Every time I've "stepped in" to chat with her higher self, she's been surrounded by her mother and sisters who are all in the angelic realm - and this day was no different.  They  were all together, talking excitedly and laughing so hard that grandma had laughter/joy tears rolling from her eyes - and she looked beautiful as a younger version of herself.

Months ago Grandma and I talked about life changes and death of the physical body, specifically, hers.  Grandma and I are very close with a very tight spiritual, telepathic connection.  She has held the door to unconditional love for my human and spiritual being-ness fully supporting me and my work without judgment all my life.  Months ago I told her that when she is ready to go home to the angelic realm, I fully support her.  After my phone call with her, I realized my spiritual self supports her life changes, but my human side is balking - fighting it every step of the way - taking back my support for her freedom of leaving the heavy, old physical body that we call "living."

So this time, when I chatted with Grandma's higher self, I thanked her for her love, her support, her non-judgment and her full acceptance of me as who I am.  Then I told her we are both ok and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her like I see my dad, Big Jim.  I told her these things because one, they are true and two, because I don't want to be the energy that is keeping her here in the physical world. Instead of clutching at the physical-ness of my grandma, I'm breathing deeply and blessing her with love from my heart.

I still allow myself to have my human grief moments, but then I end them with a deep, cleansing breath sending her love and light in joy of the continued communication that we will always have and blessing her on her journey.

In stepping outside my human pain as an observer I also realized that Grandma contemplating calling her mother as if she were alive, validates what I keep "seeing" when I step in to speak with Grandma's higher self - she is spending time with her mom and knows that she can call her - anytime.  She probably won't be physically calling her on the phone, but I can't say that if she does Grandma Hailey won't answer, because she just might!  The veil between the spirit world and our third dimension is growing exponentially thin...

We are all human and must allow ourselves to grieve the pain of loss.  But when it comes to a loved one experiencing an illness like Dementia/Alzheimer's and their ability to communicate with us in traditional ways is coming to an end, there are alternative ways to communicate.

When my grandpa had dementia in 2007 and was unable to communicate coherently with the family, I learned how to connect with his higher self and talk to him.  Through my experience I found that when our loved ones are not lucid they are in the angelic realm or spirit world - reconnected with other loved ones who are deceased AND... that they are fine - happy in fact.

As humans, grief of some life changes is inevitable.  Know that no matter who you are, you can communicate with your loved ones who have Dementia/Alzheimer's or any other illness that prevents them from conversing with you through traditional methods of communication.

If you need more help, I also share this method of communication in the Waiting in the Other Room book and through the Communicating through Dementia guided meditation and the Alzheimer's Alternative Care class.

In love and light,

Message from Big Jim...

Today, October 31, is the 6 year anniversary of Daddy, Big Jim's, death. Back in 2005 I waited to tell my daughter of Daddy's death till after I picked her up from a friend's house where she had been helping out in their Haunted House.  When we got home, Jesse immediately went to her room and closed the door and then I realized my husband had gone to bed, too.

The Majik poodle and I went outside and sat on the patio in the cool Indian summer night feeling numb and a little abandoned. Between the trees, still full with leaves, I noticed a bright star. I began talking to Daddy and my angelic entourage and the feelings of abandonment quickly subsided and I experienced the gift my "alone time" really was. I felt the warm fuzzy unconditional love from my angels, that love that changes everything and the sadness melted away. In its wake I felt comforted and peaceful.

Little did I know how quickly life was going to change. Daddy took classes in the spirit realm in order to help me with my spiritual work and to communicate with me more easily. There is no "time factor" in the angelic realm, so in "my time" he came on board immediately and more or less began "cracking the whip" like only a dad can do.  I had a reading recently where the medium told me that Daddy was the most fantastic connection she had ever worked with - his classes paid off! (Yes, I get readings, too, I AM human, you know!)

Now when Halloween draws near, I get excited at the new changes coming my way.  This year's anniversary connection  has miraculously topped the previous years and it wasn't even October 31st yet!  At 3:42am Sunday morning I woke and felt Daddy's presence, but I couldn't see him.  I asked, "Daddy, are you here?"  

Then I heard the rev of a motorcycle engine behind me.  I turned and there he was, grinning from ear to ear on a massive beast of a bike.  

I told him it wasn't nice to sneak up on people, to which he informed me that he couldn't "sneak" up on me doing this: and he revved the bike again and we laughed. He got off the bike and we walked over to a bench in a garden.  I was surprised to see that he was decked out in motorcycle "leathers." I asked him if he needed all that gear and he responded with a slow smile and drawled that the bike gear "felt good and it looked good, too."  I told him he looked great and he graciously thanked me.

We talked father daughter stuff then he passed on a message to all of you.

Message from Big Jim:
There is a serious misunderstanding that "worrying" is being "responsible." Stop worrying about life events of the world - the best thing you can do for yourself and the world is to enjoy living and never worry again.  You're wasting your energy and your time worrying.

When you let go of worry and let your hearts sing with joy, the Mother Earth and the Universe sing with you.
For many of you, your lives appear to be unraveling to an abyss of darkness - chaos without direction. This is an illusion of fear. With the impact of fear you've closed your eyes.  Choose to fearlessly open your eyes and you will find there is no darkness.  You'll find the Diamond Light of God shining from within you to light your way.

Stop worrying about loss and focus on the needs you have that are met.  I know for some, you may feel the only need you have that is being met is enough air to breathe - so be grateful for the air and embrace that gratitude.  From that higher vibration of gratitude energy you will manifest in your life more things to be grateful for!

The planet is changing.
Remember what your Shakespeare said in Macbeth, "Life is but a walking shadow, a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more."  This is only true when humans live their lives stumbling in the darkness of fear, like the character Macbeth did.  Worry, grief, sadness, depression, despair - energies of fear drain the light from you body and create more of the same in your life.
Choose to embrace in gratitude the blessings in your life.  Allow your heart to sing in joy to create more joy in your life - all areas of your life!
I can see the time waster that worry and fear are for humans. You can choose to live differently - you have more power than your human brain can understand.  Step into a little faith...  If you're unsure, accept the fact that it can't hurt to practice gratitude instead of worry of the unknown.
For those of you who are grieving the loss of a loved one.  Allow yourself to grieve, then step into your power and continue your human life. Know that grief is not an acceptable lifestyle for your human aspect or your spiritual being aspect. Those of you who are drowning in grief know who you are. Your loved ones are fine here in the angelic realm, as am I.  Everyone has help available at their time of transition from human form to spirit form - everyone. Know your loved ones are fine, they are still with you and you will meet again.
Living the coming days, months and years in Joy ARE within your grasp. Choose now - today - to live your life in joy instead of worry, stress and despair!  Know you have tremendous power - choose!
Big Jim

While Daddy was here we talked about the changes we've made to the Soul Kisses website and the information that the angels are pouring in. He showed me the difference between putting unreasonable pressure and stress on myself and letting my heart "sing" in joy from what I'm doing.  Yes... even though I love what I do, I still allow myself to fall into the fear state of "stressed to the limit."

I reiterate what Daddy says about knowing your deceased loved ones are near along with your angelic entourage.  Allow yourself to acknowledge their presence when you ask for their help and allow the peace within your heart that their love brings to you.

In invite you to join me in graciously accepting the blessings the coming days bring.  Together we will open our eyes, dissipating the darkness with the diamond light of God from within, to illuminate our life path of joy and love.

We continue to share with you The Power of Gratitude meditation as our gift.  To download the MP3, please click here.

In love and light,
Kate and Big Jim
