This time of year is so like cilantro … you either LOVE it or HATE it! (If you follow me on Facebook you know which side of the fence I’m on with cilantro.) 

For me, in the Chinese astrology system, this is my lowest energy time. It’s really a tough time for me to get through. Especially since this year is my first Holiday season on my own.

I’ve really been feeling a lot of sadness and disconnect because I‘m not with my family.

It’s the first time I haven’t celebrated with my children and it’s HARD.

Now is a great time to reach out to the Angels! I’m going to pull a few cards and see if they have a message to help us through this time of chaos and craziness.

Ready? I’m going to pull 3 cards.

The first one is where we are blocked, next is our action card and then we get the outcome card …

Ok, our first card is  … POWER.

This is where we’re stuck. So many of us feel the pressure from society, from our peers and most especially from our families. There is so much pressure to be happy, upbeat and to do it ALL!

We get steam rolled by the advertising and hype. We have to buy presents for this person and that person. It is so easy in this overwhelming time to just lose yourself, to lose your power and lose sight of why you’re here and what you’re supposed to be doing.

Our action card … MIRACLES.

That’s what this time of year is all about!

Miracles.

Focus on the miracles that are all around you.

Stop focusing on the expectations, the advertising and the craziness … let it go.

Our outcome card … COMMITMENT.

Commit to yourself. Commit to nurture yourself and allow these miracles to be in the forefront of your experience rather than society’s expectations.

We get in our own way. We lose our POWER and feel like we are supposed to do things rather than really BE in the moment. The moment of the MIRACLE that is right NOW!

If you’re not committing to be you and to fully own what it is you want to do with your time and energy than that’s when things go haywire!

Self-care is so critical at this time of year … whether it is taking a bath at the end of the night, reading a good book or getting out and exercising.

That’s what I want to ENCOURAGE you to do!

Feel free to reach out and let me know what this season is like for you. I’ll be sending you LOVE and prayers.

I wish you a wonderful Holiday Season!!

I’m sending you big love and big hugs,

Celestial beings reside in the non-physical realm. Your Higher Self resides there as well. It is the highest aspect of your consciousness. You are one with your Higher Self and you are always connected. It is who you truly are, without any masks.

You don’t have this most intimate connection with other celestial beings. They are not you, but they are there to provide guidance and protection along your life path.

You have selected your life plan before this incarnation, including what you want to experience and learn in this world. Your Higher Self has access to this information and by reconnecting with it, you can have it too. When your life plan or contract was set, your Higher Self selected spirit guides whose job is to make sure you stay on the right track. Besides spirit guides and your Higher Self, the ether is home to guardian angels and archangels as well. As you can consciously reconnect with your Higher Self, you can also detect and connect with these powerful beings.

Mediation is a great way to start communicating with your Higher Self. An altar can serve as a focal point for meditation. Once you’ve tuned in to your Higher Self, you’ll be able to get key information about why you’re here and where you should be going next. Sometimes your Higher Self can sound like intuition, sometimes as a voice of reason. The more you open yourself to it, the more you will be in tune with your Higher Self.
Here’s what you should know about these Light beings:

Higher Self

The Higher Self resides in the ether, the non-physical realm. Your Higher Self is you, but without the veil across your memory. It represents your total soul consciousness, the highest aspect of you. You, here on Earth, are a projection of your Higher Self’s consciousness. When you were born, you forgot where you came from, as incarnation causes oblivion.

There is an unbreakable connection between you and your Higher Self even though you are not aware of it. After incarnation, you are left with an ethereal connection with your Higher Self. As the total soul consciousness, your Higher Self knows everything about you including your past, present, and future because you have chosen the life you are living. It knows your life plan. By consciously reconnecting with your Higher Self, you can rediscover your purpose and live a happier, more meaningful life.

Spirit Guides

your ultimate spiritual guide
Before you were born, you created your entire life plan. Your Higher Self has this knowledge even though you have forgotten all about it. When the plan was built, your Higher Self chose spirit guides to assist you in this world.

These spirit guides have knowledge and experience in handling the exact situations you have chosen to encounter while incarnated. You can have more than one spirit guide. Some will be there for you your entire life, others from time to time. Some will guide you through certain events and leave you afterward, when their work is done. They are basically following the directives your Higher Self has set and their mission is to nudge you in the right direction, making sure you experience what you have already chosen.

Guardian Angels

Unlike spirit guides that can be incarnated, guardian angels do not incarnate. They are not in the same category as spirit guides. Angels protect everyone. We all have more than one guardian angel watching out for us. There are enough guardian angels for everyone, as there are thousands upon thousands of them. They tend to intervene when you are in a dangerous situation or in need of some serious help. They are there for you during rough times to offer support, comfort, and protection. Meditation is a great technique that can help you detect guardian angels.

Archangels

Archangels are at the highest level in the celestial hierarchy. They are extremely powerful beings and closest to the Source. These extraordinary celestial beings are omnipresent, meaning they are present everywhere at the same time. They can be bound to more than one person at a time. Archangels are messengers and protectors. Most people are familiar with Gabriel, Michael, Raphael, and Uriel. Each archangel has a particular dominant area or specialty. As they are present in every major religious system, instead of focusing on their names or physical descriptions, focus on their specialties. That is what matters the most.

Altars

An altar is a place that can help you anchor your attention. It represents the intersection between the non-physical realm and Earth. It serves as a place that can help you center your awareness and consciously reconnect with your Higher Self and other celestial beings.
You can create a personal altar in your home. Regardless of your religious beliefs, a personal altar will reflect your spirituality and provide a place for quiet reflection and devotion. The altar you have set up in your home can serve as a focal point for meditation. There is no right or wrong way to set up an altar, just follow your intuition.

The first thing you have to do is to find a space to set up your altar. It should be in an area that is quiet and peaceful, where you know you can sit without disruption. All you need is a flat place, table or shelf. The next thing to do is to place a cloth over it. The cloth should reflect your personality, beliefs, and intention. Use the one you feel the most comfortable with. It should be large enough to cover the entire altar. You should clean and cleanse this area as often as possible.

Keep in mind that an altar is supposed to please you, not anybody else. You don’t have to think about how it looks like. Follow your intuition and place the things you feel need to be there. Arrange it the way you like and place everything with intention. These things represent what is sacred to you. You can have items that represent the four elements, including earth, wind, fire, and water. You should also have something that represents your source, something that will help you still your thoughts and open your heart for not just your intuition but also for your Higher Self.

On August 11, 2012 my Dad, Brian Klepinger, died unexpectedly. He decided to have some elective surgery and ended up with a major infection that ultimately shut down all of his vital organs. You never know what is going to happen in life, unless of course, if you are psychic…

The last time I talked to my dad was just less than a month before he died. It was mid July and my daughter and I were preparing to leave on a two-week trip to Europe to celebrate her high school graduation. He called me from his home in Colorado to wish us well and to let me know that he had decided to have this surgery while I’d be out of the country. I immediately had a bad feeling. I questioned him on the necessity of the surgery and if he was clear about the potential complications.

He explained that yes he felt the surgery was necessary. He loved to travel around the world and especially to remote out of the way places. Earlier in the year he narrowly escaped having a debilitating diverticulitis attack in the middle of some South American jungle. Fortunately the pain began just a day before he was to leave, so he ended up missing the trip and opting for an extended hospital stay.

He also assured me that any complications were minor and that there was nothing to be worried about. I continued to pepper him with questions and he seemed to have an answer for every one of them. Finally I told him that I hoped that it would turn out the way he had hoped and that I’d be really mad if he died while I was out of the country.

He was true to his word – he didn’t die while I was out of the country, he waited 9 days until after I returned. I called him the day I arrived back in the US and his 3rd wife told me he was home, asleep on the couch and needed his rest. She’d have him call me over the weekend. He didn’t call. By Monday he was experiencing severe pain and was readmitted to the hospital. I flew out as soon as I could and by the time I arrived in Denver on Wednesday morning, he was intubated and unconscious.

I am continually amazed at how unaware I am of what I’m aware of – I had a really bad feeling about the surgery and even though I tried to impress that upon my Dad, I never came out and said, “You are going to die.” Frankly I don’t know if that is what I should have done or if it’s even my right to say something like that to someone. Ultimately, it’s all about free will and free choice.

In my book, which is being released this summer, Art of Living Happy, I talk about the experience of him passing over:

Within 15 minutes the nurses had prepared him by removing his breathing tubes and the IV’s. We stepped into the cubicle. His wife and I each held one of his hands and my brother put his hand on my dad’s leg. I closed my eyes and immediately got a picture in my mind of what was happening. I explained what I was seeing to them.

“I see him above us, smiling. He wants us to know that he loves us and that he’s sorry for everything that happened. He loves you so much and wants to thank you for taking such good care of him.” I directed this toward his wife. “And Eric, he is telling you that he is proud of you and me too. I see a great light and he’s moving toward it. I see him reuniting with Grandma and Grandpa. It’s such a beautiful sight. The feeling of love is overwhelming.” Tears were streaming down my face, not from sadness but from joy – the joy of seeing him transition and entering the kingdom of love.

No matter how many issues you have with someone, death seems to melt them away. I found that my feelings of loss overwhelmed all of the other feelings that I had felt for my father throughout my life. I felt at peace with my father, maybe for the first time.

That was true until two days later when we arrived at the attorney’s office…

Yes, going to the attorney’s office changed everything. I was faced with more life lessons in which I discovered a lot more about myself. Including the fact that I do have a dark side, a very dark side.

Meanwhile my dad has been coming to me in various ways:

He came through as a vision to one of my clients, while we were in the middle of a healing session.

He showed himself to a friend of mine in her dream. She visualized my house and saw him sitting on the couch. A month later she came to my home for a dinner party and was shocked as my house was exactly what she saw in her dream – she had never been here before.

During a recent training weekend, my mentor channeled a message from him to me. Everyone else got messages from Buddha, Jesus and other ascended masters – thanks Dad!

He’s contacted me twice through a well-known medium, Roland Comtois, at two different events where only a handful of people were given messages.

He’s come through to my brother’s girlfriend in a healing session she had with a gifted energy healer.

He’s woken me up and had me write 2 pages of channeled information.

Not to mention, he’s always leaving me signs – usually in the form of cigarette smoke or white butterflies whenever I happen to be thinking of him.

Needless to say, he is making up for lost time. I’m glad that he has finally seen the light and that he is reaching out to me since his passing. I just wish he had been more open in this lifetime, so we could have healed our issues as we went rather than trying to do it all now.

This is another reason why I wrote my book, Art of Living Happy. I’m hoping it will inspire people to wake up and deal with their issues before they die. It’s so important to connect truthfully and openly with your loved ones on every level while you are alive and able to do so. I also know how difficult it is to discuss estate planning and what will happen when your loved ones dies, but let me tell you, it’s much easier to have some heated discussions now rather than to be left with a potential bomb that could blow your world up – like mine was. Don’t wait – we are all going to die, so get your affairs in order, or if you have parents, bring up the subject and sort out the issues so that everyone can be happy.

How about you? Have you had a bombshell explode after the death of a loved one? Have you been contacted by a loved one who has passed over? Are you looking to connect to your loved ones? Are you stuck or need help moving forward? Leave me your comments – I love discussing these issues.

Love and Blessings, ~Lisa

I was having coffee with a dear friend of mine a couple of months ago, Lisa J (one of my favorite Earth Angels!), and said, “I’ve had such great success with my private clients, I would love to put together a group of about twenty people and see what happens.” Well, my friend Lisa jumped right on that and said, “Hey, I’d love to help you put that together.” A few weeks later she had it all set up and I conducted my first group channeling session and it was BEYOND FABULOUS! The energy in the room was amazing and the messages that came through were outstanding. I even channeled some beautiful messages from passed loved ones, which were so heartfelt and healing that I was literally blown away!
