April 2nd, 2017 was the day my sister and I visited my sister Spiritualist church, Golden Gate Spiritualist Church in San Francisco, California. The church looks like an old Victorian house in an area of Frisco that seems unlikely to house a church. I should have taken pictures inside of the church but did not for respect of the church. The inside was BEAUTIFUL. Spirit paintings filled up the walls of the church up and down stairs. Spirit Paintings are created during a seance. Spirit creates the image, it’s amazing because it occurs while the picture is covered. There is never any evidence of brush strokes, just a clear picture mostly of Spirit Guides from the founder, Reverend Florence Becker.
The beginning of any Spiritualist church starts off with a healing service. This service was performed in a room adjacent to the main room and it was filled with so much loving energy. After the healing service a short sermon was presented from the Reverend and a pianist played soft background and hymnal music. This day a guest Spiritualist medium from Great Britain, Pauline Mason, serviced the church and presented spirit greetings (short spiritual messages).
I was drawn to come this particular day but couldn’t really tell you why. I was hoping to hear from my Grandmother but instead we heard from her other half. Pauline had stated that she was finishing up the last of her messages when she said a Spirit was coming through and identified itself as being someone who used crutches in their life. My sister and I raised both of our hands up realizing that it was our Grandfather who was coming in. He was physically disabled his entire life but he never let it stop him. He was a prideful man which is another characteristic that she brought up of his Spirit. The overall message that he wanted to convey was that he wanted to thank us for helping him in his later years and that he was still with us, guiding us down the right path in our journeys. It brought major comfort and validation that we were meant to be at this particular service.
If you’re in the Bay Area of California or not far from it I highly suggest you visit the Golden Gate Spiritualist Church . I am almost done with my certification process in gaining the title of a certified Spiritualist medium; another post for another time, but if interested I will be posting about the process soon.
2016 has been a rough year for everyone and now it’s nearing its end…. FINALLY. We could choose to indulge in our losses or accept them as a necessity for us to move forward. I experienced death 3x this year and as I accept them I’ll never be the same without them, Your Ashes Feel Like Home. and Message from Grandma. With that said, I’ve moved on the best that I can which also included being laid off from my job at the end of the month, YET, had I not been laid off, I would not have gained the position I have now which is in my career field. Things have to fall a part before greater things can come together.
Anxiety has been another factor that I’ve had to deal with this year, something I didn’t recognize I have been dealing with until this year. As a child who experienced spiritual phenomenon I never understand the feelings I would experience underneath everything else I was seeing, hearing, and sensing but anxiety has been a companion of mine for many many years. Counseling helped when my Grandma transitioned onward and it was then that I realized ANXIETY as a partner I’ve never recognized.
I have to thank the love for my life for supporting and uplifting me throughout every loss and crisis I’ve experienced. He has been my guiding light, the Love of my Light, my Atheist Love, to read more about our Spiritualist & Atheist relationship please read The Ideal Relationship Between an Atheist & Spiritualist. Opposites do attract and everything is meant to be for reasoning of love and learning. The picture below is what I took while riding as a passenger to Mendocino, CA. It’s where My Love takes me to unwind and relax when life gets to be too much. It’s the town that sits on a cliff and love is felt everywhere.
Lastly, this year I’ve placed my fears aside and began servicing others spiritually through my intuitive readings. When I service others I heal myself. If you are in the Sacramento, California area and would like to schedule a face to face session with me please reach out to me via my email, I would LOVE to hear from you!
Depression is common and it’s treatable. I’m NOT ashamed to say I’m depressed. Yesterday I just wanted to stay in bed away from the outside world but because I’m loved I wasn’t allowed to. Instead I was brought out to Berkeley to watch the sunset out in the bay. Everyday is different, so when people ask me how I’m doing, I just say I’m doing _____ right now.
A week before I knew she would pass I reached out for grief counseling. I missed my first appointment last week due to living in a blur all week so my second first session is on the 31st. It’s good to recognize what you need and to find the needed resources to help you through any crisis life throws your way. We all grieve differently from one another… this is part of how I grieve….
