When life is dragging you down, remember the three “A” prayers and you will be able to find the strength within to cope with your difficulty. With Divine guidance and practical actions, we can all cope with whatever we are presented with in life.

The ACCEPT Prayer

Let me accept life as it comes, knowing that life is filled with many ups and downs.  Let me accept other people as they are, knowing that while I do not have to go along with their actions, I can respect their individual rights.  Let me accept the natural passages in life of birth and death. Knowing that life is eternal, I can live with the knowledge that when my loved ones leave their physical bodies, their consciousness lives on in the eternal spiritual world.

The ALLEVIATE Prayer

Let me during times of stress alleviate all tasks that are not absolutely necessary.  Unless it gives me total satisfaction to clean out the garage, let me avoid taking on huge projects at this time.  Let me alleviate all social obligations unless my attendance is absolutely required, or attending such an event would be helpful to me at this time.  Let me remove all items from my diet that are likely to aggravate my digestion and my sleep, and let me do whatever exercise is acceptable for my physical condition, in order to reduce the current stress I am feeling.

The ASPIRE Prayer

Let me aspire to connect with that part of myself I call my Higher Self or Greater Self, knowing that it is this part of me that connects to Divine Consciousness.  As I aspire to be in touch with the spark of Divinity that is within me, and within each one of us, I will receive the blessings of the Divine through the cosmic connection that is my birthright.

Allowing the Presence of Spirit July 14, 2009

My clients often tell me that they have a hard time feeling the presence of the spirits of their loved ones who have passed over.  Unfortunately many people are looking for spectacular signs from those in eternal life. They look for the Hollywood version of spirit communication.

When I do mediumistic readings for people and blend with the spirits of their loved ones in order to bring messages, nothing spectacular happens.  Lights do not flash on and off and pictures do not fall off the wall.  What I experience is quite subtle.  I just know that the spirits are there and I begin to see visions in my mind of what they used to look like. I begin to blend with their memories and just know things about their lives.  After I have given my clients the messages from their loved ones, I tell them that as they open to the presence of spirit, they will have the same experience I am having. They will just know the spirits are there.

It is natural for any of us to doubt it when we experience the presence of the spirit of a loved one. We become sure we are making it up because we long to hear from our loved one.  That is why it is so helpful to have a reading with an experienced medium.  If a medium, who knows nothing about your loved one, can tell you things about your loved one that are true, then you will know that the spirit of your loved one really has survived the change called death. This knowledge will make it easier for you to believe it when you feel the presence yourself.

I became a medium because the gift was suddenly given to me. But then I trained for years in Spiritualist organizations such as the American Federation of Spiritualist Churches and took courses with the Spiritualist National Union of Great Britain.  My education helped me to understand my gift and learn to use it responsibly.

I encourage you to be open to the presence of your loved ones. You do not have to be a medium. Just be open and allow the spirits of your loved ones to come to you.

The Sacred Practice of Spirit Communication June 8, 2009

When we, who are still living in physical bodies, are granted access to communications with the spirits of those who have passed on into eternal life, we have reason to give grateful thanks to a power greater than ourselves.  From my perspective as a psychic medium, when I am able to open up a part of my consciousness and enter the sacred space of communication, it is a real blessing for me, for the spirits and for those who receive messages from the spirits through mediumship.

At times on radio and television, spirit communication may look like a parlor game or entertainment. This is due to the quick messages that we must give. And while there is a great purpose for us to do mini-readings on the radio, on television and in chat rooms, it is important that the general public understand that having a private reading in person or on the phone, or even a small group reading with an experienced medium, is a totally different experience in which you will receive a more in depth message from a loved one who has passed on.  Of course there are always exceptions, and sometimes in a message given on the radio or on television, the experience may be incredible and a great deal of healing may take place. But generally speaking, if one wants an in depth reading, make an appointment for a private or small group reading.

The other day I was doing a reading for a woman on the phone, who praised me when I brought a good piece of evidence about a loved one who has passed over by saying “Oh, that was a hit.”  And when I brought a piece of information that she could not understand she said “Sorry, that was a miss.”  Halfway through the reading, I was beginning to feel like I was playing baseball rather than communicating with the world of spirit.  I finally suggested to my client that we not evaluate each comment that I made in terms of “hits or misses” and allow ourselves to enter the sacred space of spirit communication.   It was good that I made this comment, because as the client and I entered a more sacred space, the spirit blended with us in a totally different way, and now we were getting better messages from those in spirit. And in fact, there was also more factual information embedded in the messages. At this point, we were not interrupting the flow of the communication from spirit with quick evaluations of each point made.  Instead of feeling like I was in the middle of a spelling test, I was involved in the miraculous environment of spirit communication.

Now I could not blame my client for originally creating the atmosphere of a ball game or spelling quiz, as that kind of portrayal of spirit communication may be what she has been used to experiencing on the radio,  television and in some demonstrations of mediumship.  It becomes all too easy for both mediums and those who receive readings, to experience the communication as a game.  Because we are bringing evidence about those who lived in order to prove that we are communicating, it does become necessary to evaluate whether the evidence is correct.  But hopefully there is a way for us as mediums to blend so deeply with the spirits of those who have passed over, that the messages that come through will flow naturally and will contain factual information that in fact proves we are in communication.

Communication with those who have passed on is very sacred, and hopefully we can find ways to communicate with our loved ones that reflects our gratitude for the opportunity to communicate.

Five Books That Have Changed My Life May 13, 2009

Five Books have changed my life and I would like to tell you about each book and why it was life changing.

Wishcraft by Barbara Sher: I read this book years ago and Barbara helped me make many life decisions.  As a creative person, with multiple interests and talents, I found it hard to focus on a direction.   As I did the exercises in Wishcraft, I was able to find a way to integrate all of my interests and talents into a professional and spiritual path that has been wonderful. My thanks go to Barbara Sher.

Opening to Channel by Sanaya Roman and Duane Parker:  Those of you who have read my most recent book Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World, know how much this book by Sanaya and Parker influenced me. I had never really thought about channeling or as many would call it, receiving inspirational messages from a Divine Source.  When I read this book and began to experiment with the exercises,  I found my true spiritual path as a psychic medium and author.  I am grateful to Sanaya Roman and Duane Parker.

In Tune With the Infinite by Ralph Waldo Trine: When I discovered my gift as a psychic medium and began to study with Spiritualist organizations, I was introduced to this incredible book of philosoply. Ralph Waldo Trine is inspired as he writes.  His quotes often find their ways into my lectures and sermons when I serve a Spiritualist Church.  My spirit reaches out to Ralph Waldo Trine.

The Integral Yoga by Sri Aurobindo: This teacher who began as a freedom fighter for India, and ultimately founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry,  is fast becoming my spiritual teacher.  While he is no longer living in the body, he left us the gifts of many books. I do not know how one man could write so many incredible books.  The last time I visited the Sri Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry, I had the privilege of visiting the room where he did his writing. I could feel the incredible energy and as a writer myself, was grateful for this experience.  As I read his books I learn, I am transformed, and encouraged to work for a better world.  His writings have had a great influence on me as I have written Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World. I express great gratitude to my teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The Mother’s Vision: The Mother: A woman who came to be called The Mother, founded the Sri Aurobindo Ashram with Sri Aurobindo.  Her books are full of enlightenment, and her words are easy to understand. One can live a better life by just reading a few paragraphs of her books daily.  An incredible teacher and inspiration to us all,  I encourage you to read The Mother’s Vision.   My love pours out to The Mother.

Books are wonderful creatures that are able to change our lives.  As we read the words of an author, it is like having an intimate conversation with the writer. The books we read take us to places we might never travel otherwise.

People were so happy buying books to help feed hungry babies in India….. April 13, 2009

There are hungry children all around the world, and if it makes you feel too sad to read these words, please try to keep reading anyway, as there is SO much that each one of us can do without spending much money at all. Yesterday I was part of an event where people bought books in order to help feed babies in Southern India. If you could have seen the smiles on people’s faces as they paid their money. I have never seen people so happy letting go of their money, other than at an incredible sale at Feline’s Basement in Boston, or at a fantastic yard sale.  The point is, people like a good deal and people like to help others.  In a fundraiser yesterday at a Spiritualist Church in Salem, New Hampshire, people were given a great opportunity to help others and buy books.  It was a win win situation.  I had my new book for sale Cosmic Connection: Messages for a Better World. This book is about honoring our own unique spiritual experiences and about evolving spiritually so that we can each make better choices for our troubled world.  I want to use this book at events like the fundraiser yesterday. The book IS about spiritual evolution, and so it should be used to help others.  I enjoyed the fundraiser yesterday, and we raised enough money to put one new baby in the feeding program, and when a few more dollars are raised to add to the funds raised yesterday, we will be able to add a second new baby to the feeding program in Southern India.

As a Spiritualist minister and medium, I serve many Spiritualist churches in the United States. As an author of four books, when I do book signings at churches, I often donate a box of my books and then all the monies received during the sale of the books goes to the Babies Need Food project, which is sponsored by our family charity: The Rani Roberts Memorial Corporation.  Every time we raise between $125 and $150 we are able to put another baby into our feeding program in southern India, which feeds a baby for the first two years of life.  Yesterday, at the Spiritualist Church in Salem, Massachusetts, people bought books knowing that every penny would go to buy formula and medications for needy babies. We are fortunate to have family members that do all of the administrative work in the foundation, so that all monies collected can go to buy food and medications.

I thank the Spiritualist Church in Salem, New Hampshire for their support.

I know that many of you already give what you can to charity and hopefully all of us will continue to give all that we can during these hard financial times.

American Federation of Spiritualist Churches Convention 2008 December 5, 2008

Hi Friends,

I am about to leave for Plymouth, MA where I will spend the weekend attending the annual convention of the American Federation of Spiritualist Churches.  I am very happy to be part of the religion of Spiritualism as my experiences in this religion have changed my concept of life.   In my early days in the religion, I received many readings and got the proof that I needed, that life is continuous, and that when the physical body dies, the consciouness of the individual continues on in eternal life.

Since my early days, I have had many years of experience developing my own ability to give mediumistic readings, and I have done alot of light trance work where I have received messages that I believe to be from a higher source.  The messages I have received have been life changing.

One of the things I like most about Spiritualism is that our churches serve people from all religions and all walks of life.   Sometimes people from other religions come and see us for a year or so after the passing of a loved one.  We do not try to convert them if they are happy in their religion.  We help them through the grief process with our services of spiritual  healing and our sacred mediumistic messages.

Some who come to the religion of Spiritualism give up their former religion and become Spiritualists.  That is what happened to me.  I felt more comfortable with the principles of Spiritualism than I had felt in the religion of my early years.

There are many good Spiritualist organizations.

American Federation of Spiritualist Churches

National Spiritualist Association of Churches

Spiritualist National Union of Great Britain

All of these organizations offer correspondence courses, so if you are interested, let me know and I will help you find them. If you use Google, you can also find them on your own.

So I am off to convention.

Do you have any questions about Spiritualism?

Finding a Good Teacher November 6, 2008

I receive many emails each month from people who are realizing that the world of spirit is beginning to “talk” to them.  These are people who are suspecting that they might be mediums, able to communicate with the spirits of those who have passed on into eternal life.

I respond to these emails, encouraging people to find a teacher of spirit communication. But can spirit communication be taught? No. There is no way that any teacher can make someone into a medium. But if a person has received the gift of being able to communicate with the world of spirit, a good teacher will help the student discover this spiritual gift within.

Where can one find a good teacher?  The religion of Spiritualism has many good teachers, and if you study the backgrounds of many of the best mediums in the world, they are either part of Spiritualism or they were when they were first unfolding their spiritual gifts.  Many Spiritualist churches and centers have classes for both members and non-members.

Some people do not want to be part of any religion. If so, another choice is to get the name of a teacher from a new age book store or in an advertisement in a new age magazine in print or on line.

Whatever you do, find a good teacher.

Spiritualism Means So Much To Me November 3, 2008

Last night, Sunday night I was the speaker and medium at the First Spiritualist Church of Salem.  The woman who introduced me spoke about how I had been the speaker years ago when she was first attending the Spiritualist Church. She made me feel good by telling us that I had influenced her to go into Spiritualism. I almost cried when she said that because it took me back to 1993 when I first starting attending Spiritualist churches. I remembered how much I was influenced by the first speakers I heard.

This woman’s comments made me happy that I have served in Spiritualist Churches for so many years. Sometimes on a Sunday, I may wish I had the day off or could do something else with my family. All of us who serve churches regularly have to give up many other activities.  But when this woman thanked me,  it made me realize how important it is for me and for the other Spiritualist speakers/mediums to continue to serve churches.  Once again I also realized how much the religion of Spiritualism means to me.

In Spiritualism we learn that life is continuous and then when the earthly life is over, our spirits live on in eternal life.  Through our sacred demonstrations of spirit communication, we prove that we can communicate with those who have passed on. Knowing that has changed my life. We are a religion with no dogma and the only document we have is a suggested set of principles to live by.   Many people from other religions come to our services, especially during times when a loved one in their family has passed on.  We respect people of all faiths, and in most churches that I serve, no pressure is put on people to become members. All are welcome.

Like any religion, or group of any kind, we have our problems and we have our differences. Who does not? But even so, I find Spiritualist churches to be a great place for me to go and to serve.

Next week I will be going out to San Francisco to do readings.  I will also be serving a Spiritualist church out there for the first timeon November 23: The Golden Gate Spiritualist Church.  I am eager to meet everyone there.
