Handling Anxiety, Loss and Fear

free fear

When people come for readings, they’re usually in pain.  Whether confused, frustrated, or in grief, there is a common denominator. Can you spot it? 

When letting go of loved ones, we all tend to long for the past and more time with those who have died and fear not having those times again.  When faced with financial insecurity, we’re fearful about tomorrow.  Regarding things we want: relationships, jobs, spiritual growth – fears of imperfection and shame can arise.  All of these common trials sound dissimilar, but there is a common denominator.  

We are afraid we won’t get what we want or we are afraid we will lose something. Fear.  It’s at the root of all of these problems.   Fears get produced in the mind, so they can be addressed there.

Which leads us to some solutions.

It helps to clear the mind, or meditate.  (Other ways to clear are relaxing activities, engaging in hobbies we love, and exercising – where we have to focus the mind completely, or where we automatically release excess energy.)  Remember that saying: there’s nothing to fear but fear itself?  Well, it doesn’t apply when you’re being chased by a lion, or when you need to run away from a hurricane, but it does apply to most of the situations people go to psychics about!

So, fear is the basic problem.  What do you do when you feel afraid?  Sometimes, in human relationships, it’s just a matter of setting healthy boundaries.  Does that work for you?  If so, please share!  And…

Did you know that there is a way to stop the fears from rising in the first place?  

I think there are several ways to do this, and asking your angels helps, but here are two other ways.  (House pets are great role models of both of these methods, so if you need some practical techniques, watch your dog!)

One way is to center your mind and recall present time consciousness.  Pulling our thoughts into present time keeps the mind off of unrealized future worries and past problems. 

Acceptance of our situation is a great first step that brings us back into the present moment. 

Unconditional love can be tricky, but it’s another key. 

It actually releases us from the fear of shame, which is a big underlying fear driver in our society!  Being loving with ourselves when we are imperfect and when we are not meeting the status quo can actually melt away the anxiety right then and there!  Try it.

Love trumps fear every time! 

I hope that helps with any anxiety you may have right now.  I’d love to hear your own stories and tips.

In joy and peace,

Did I Ever Tell You About When I Died?

I was FIT – a medknee surgeryal-winning snow ski racer in my twenties.

I went for a voluntary ACL reconstruction after a ski racing accident. I really didn’t have to have the surgery, but I wanted more stability in my knee so that I could ski jump, surf, and continue to lead a daredevil life.

Little did I know – that decision was nearly my final one. I wish I could tell you what caused it. Afterwards, the hospital “lost” the records so I never found out if I was either allergic to the anesthesia or if they accidentally overdosed me. It doesn’t really matter.

Either way, it wasn’t my time. I came back. I was already on the spiritual path, so my natural psychic senses were primed to expand, but it was more than a wake-up call. You might even call it a resurrection.

My soul gained new pathways into my conscious life after that experience, and I learned that sometimes, the soul is in control while the body is just along for the ride.

A lot of people have written about their Near Death Experiences, and I wanted to share that it has happened to someone in your life – me. And when it happens, our conscious mind stands down. The soul is captain in charge. Everything began to shift, and more synchronicities happened. I think that was the moment when I decided to fully go for this life, the love, the lessons, the hills, and the valleys.

For me, death was a major wake-up call that cracked open my soul, forged floodgates of light, and recently led to service as a medium.

Your turn. Have you had a near-death experience?  Here’s a song to play while you think about it.  Soul Meets Body

One Mom’s Magical Message

A Magic Farewell

Sometimes I have epiphanies in my medium sessions. I want to share this one with you.

The other day, a beloved mother’s spirit came through to console her children and to revive the love they were grieving. This mom had only been gone a few months, but her communications skills were already honed. Her voice came through with clear particulars about her life.

Her two grown children acknowledged all the loving memories and descriptions that the spirit conveyed, helping to anchor their mom’s presence with us in the room.  This mother’s messages and evidence connected, from the exact number of months she had been gone to her polished attire, penchant for real estate deals, specific items left behind, and her awareness of struggles in the lives of those still here.

All of this was astoundingly accurate, miraculous and magically restorative for the adult kids, but this is pretty standard in my sessions these days.

The most amazing thing to me was the occurrence at her last breath.

“She’s so proud of you.”  I looked at the son and said, “You made a lot of sacrifices and hard decisions.  You really grew up after she got sick.”

He pushed his glasses up on his nose and grinned. “I took care of her.”

I said, “She’s showing me that you were with her in the hospital by her bed when she died.”

He nodded, tears glistening in the depth of his big, brown eyes.

“She shows me that she had really changed at the end. The hospital was torture for you.  She had lost most of her hair and half her weight.  She was unconscious and couldn’t speak to you.  She’s laughing at this.  She says she looked like a little old man. You’d hardly recognize her.”

Again, his head bobbed in recognition, not sure whether to laugh or cry.

“And then…”  I smiled at the vision she gave me of the hospital room, filled with sparkling light, spiritual recognition, and a profound sense of peace.  This shower of love filled the emptiness.  “Something holy happened in there because of you.”  His eyes glazed over.  I squinted, searching for words.  “Something lovely.  Did you bless her?”

He shook his head.  Clearly, he had no idea what his mother was trying to say.

“Ah,” I blurted.  “You gave her permission to leave?”

Water filled his eyes.  He nodded.

I thought, what a hero this son had been, to care for her and then to release her this way, so selflessly honoring her eternal spirit.

In that instant, the air seemed aglow. Love connected everything and there was nothing empty there.

“That was HUGE.  Thank you for that,” I said, stunned at the revelation.

Recognition flashed in his eyes.  He sniffed and said, “She died a few minutes later.”

Here was this recently departed mother, sharing her most vulnerable, tender and profound moment of final transformation.  And here we were, strangers, embraced in her luminous eternal spirit, unquestionably relieved of the pressure that had lingered after her death.

So, that loving conversation gave me a powerful insight to share.  When we can permit the souls of our loved ones to fly, it’s one of the greatest blessings for all.

with blessings to you,
Lisa Atkinson
