Deceased Loved Ones: Ramona

Picture it: New York City. Halloween Party. Last week. So I’m sitting on a couch in Brooklyn sipping champagne in a butter yellow caftan. I hardly know anyone but ain’t no thang because I make friends fast and my bubbly was super tasty. I was happy!  I’m sitting there observing the crowd when a handsome …

A Case for Predestination. Or Guardian Angels. Or Something.

So I’m driving home…the same route I’ve taken for years.  Muscle memory makes me flick the left blinker as soon as I enter the freeway because the far right lane spits me back on the feeder if I don’t. I indicated left and icy prickles coated my left cheek, spreading down my arm and through …

Jesus for Breakfast

I am stupid tired. Again. This is like my 8th night of interrupted sleep and I’m a little irritated . . . okay, a lot irritated. Usually it’s my idiot neighbors waking me up. They’re under 25, work in bars, and I curse their vampire hours! Typically they're leaving the house as I stack my pillows just …

Angels. They’re real you know.

I met my first angel at work.  Well, I didn't meet him really...we didn't shake hands. Rather, I felt him. And this 'meeting' forced a change in me. See, I never really believed in angels. Nice concept and all that but really, I thought they was just biblical lore and fodder for crappy  mass-produced posters all the sorority girls …

Spirit Guides Part 2

I never told anyone about the ghosts. Not really. I told Mom that my first daughter would be named Sophie but I didn’t tell her a kind male voice whispered that twenty years before her birth. My run-ins with Spirit really slowed after elementary school. Could be because we moved from that notably haunted house in Bellaire. …

Spirit Guides Part 1

 “Do I have a spirit guide?" People often ask me.   "Ummm," I answer honestly, "I think so." Some New Agers swear we all have spirit guides (yes you too dear skeptic). And supposedly these entities sign up to guide us through our lifespan. Sounds great, right? Well I’m the type of chick that needs proof so I won't SWEAR we have them. But I can share …

His Own Funeral Part 3

This entry is a continuation from His Own Funeral Parts 1 & 2. Please start here. ******* So I'm attending this funeral, though I wasn't quite there if you know what I mean. My mind was another place as Larry flashed images at me. He was very insistent on this brown shirt/palm tree/smoke thing while standing there enjoying his eulogies I kid …

His Own Funeral Part 1

I won't swear that we all go to our own funerals, but I swear on my life Larry Walker went to his. I've had many profound experiences with the Other Side but this one was a game changer. Why?  Because Larry committed suicide. And people who commit suicide aren’t supposed to go to Heaven, right?  You may …

The ‘P’ Word

 I had another answered prayer last week! Wheee! I suppose you could say it was more of an affirmation, but whatever. So last week was super rough. Why? Because I’m currently waiting on news that will profoundly impact my future. (read: I’ve waited for years). I have very little (no) control over this situation and …
