Forgiveness: How It Helps You!

Forgiveness: How It Helps You!

Many of us have been conditioned to believe that forgiveness is a gift that we give to others after they have done something that hurts us, but it is a gift that we give ourselves. When someone hurts us, we sometimes get caught up and bogged down by negative feelings such as anger, betrayal, sadness, the list is endless. Take a minute to think about it – do these feelings affect you or the other person more? Let’s take a deeper look at forgiveness.

What Is Forgiveness?

So, what actually is forgiveness? Is it the simple act of saying sorry or asking for it? Or, is it a gift, a pardon delivered to another for their previous actions? It turns out that forgiveness goes a bit deeper than that. Yes, it is an act of releasing someone from the emotional consequences of something they have done in the past, but it is also an act of liberating ourselves from the emotions we felt as a result.

We when hold these negative feelings inside of ourselves it affects our life and our energy. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you have to forget what may have happened. It simply means that you are choosing to move past the negative feelings attached to situation or person.

Why Should I Forgive?

Forgiveness does not have to prelude a reconciliation; you can forgive without welcoming someone back into your life. Forgiveness is incredibly important for spiritual progress and emotional maturity. Holding a grudge is easy, but it requires a bit more thought and directed energy.

It addition to spiritual and emotional benefits like lowering anxiety and stress and improving self-esteem, it is proven to have physical benefits, as well. These include lowering blood pressure, improving your immune system, and even improving your heart health.

In another sense, forgiveness is a way to free yourself – the other person doesn’t even have to ask for it. You should forgive because it allows you to release negative emotions that are keeping you from enjoying any inner peace.

How Does Forgiveness Help Me?

We often think of forgiveness as a way of making amends, forgetting about past events, or condoning the behaviors of other when they have done something that hurts us, but this form of forgiveness is not universal. Forgiveness is an internal practice that helps you come to terms with past experiences that include suffering, anger, resentment, and pain.

Moving past these situations allows you to find the freedom to move forward. This allows you to create more positive energy in your life and in yourself. Essentially, forgiveness is a gift that you give to yourself. Of course, it is not as easy as it sounds, but the benefits of expressing and embracing forgiveness far outweigh the problems caused by carrying around all of that negative and draining energy and emotions. Overall, the more you show forgiveness to yourself and others throughout your life, the more you will be able to embrace positivity, gratitude, and total wellbeing.

Have You Had A Spiritual Awakening? Here’s What You Should Know.

Have You Had A Spiritual Awakening? Here’s What You Should Know.

The term spiritual awakening tends to take on many shapes and forms when it comes to its definition. Those who are interested may wonder, have I even had one yet? Also with such an abstract concept, it may be a challenge to determine if you have experienced this for yourself or not.

What does this term really mean, how do you know if you have had one, and if you are in search of a spiritual awakening, how long does it take to achieve? Let’s take a look!

What Is A Spiritual Awakening?

The idea of a spiritual awakening is nothing new. As humans, we have always been in a constant search of finding and bringing deeper meaning and purpose to their lives. However this search has been going on for centuries. Various cultures have given it unique names such as bliss, enlightenment, nirvana, paradise – this list is truly endless. While there are many names for it, the understanding and underlying definitions tend to be very similar to one another.

A spiritual awakening is a recognition and calling to a higher state of consciousness with a more profound mental awareness. But that still sounds pretty lofty and abstract, huh? This is because, as people, we are all so different, and so too are our experiences.

A simple way to connect all of these various understandings of what a spiritual awakening is can be linked to one core definition. A spiritual awakening occurs when someone undergoes a personal transformation that changes their perspective and view of the world. It essentially redesigns their mental and emotional framework.

How To Know If You Have Had A Spiritual Awakening

There are many ways to determine if you have experienced a spiritual awakening. You could write a book on the topic. Here’s the quick and condensed guide to determining if it has already happened to you. However, if it hasn’t, what you should be on the lookout for.

  • You are reevaluating your previously held beliefs.
  • You are experiencing more serendipitous moments and synchronicities such as déjà vu.
  • You are embracing a stronger sense of spirituality in your life.
  • Your dreams are becoming more vivid and memorable.
  • You are more intuitive.
  • You have a stronger send of inauthenticity around you which may make you feel more disconnected or detached from things that used to feel normal.
  • You have changed habits, routines, and other daily normalities.
  • You are experiencing more compassion and curiosity.

There are countless signals that you are undergoing a spiritual awakening, which makes it nearly impossible to outline all of the possible signs of transformation. But the list above is a great place to be exploring the potential signals.

How Long Do Spiritual Awakenings Take?

The answer to this question is not as concrete, and for some, not very satisfying. However, the truth is that everyone is on their own timeline when it comes to becoming more spiritually awake. Some would even argue that the process of a spiritual awakening should be never-ending. Also, it’s something that we all consistently strive to improve and build upon. Your timeline is truly up to you and your situations and experiences.

Life on Purpose

Life on Purpose

Life on Purpose

Have you ever asked yourself, “What’s my life purpose? Or what the heck am I doing here?”

If you have, you are not alone. There have been specific transitional periods in my life when that question seemed even more relevant.

In high school, I remember feeling like I didn’t get “IT.” Although I wasn’t sure what “IT” was, and if I did, I probably wouldn’t have recognized “IT.” It was as if God had handed out the book on how to live life and I skipped that class because I sure couldn’t grasp the concept.

I didn’t feel like anyone saw me or felt real. One day sitting at a busy intersection, I wondered if I pulled my car into the middle, would people even notice I was there? I felt invisible.

Eventually I tried reading the Bible but threw it across my room because none of it made sense. Maybe it was because I started in Leviticus, but well, you get the point.

The thing I craved most was love and oneness with my Creator. However, at the time, I didn’t know that’s what I needed. But I searched for that love in drugs, sex, lies, manipulation, and deceit—everywhere but within.

Then one day, I held an incredible miracle of life in my hands—my son.

Becoming a mother was a pivotal point in my life. I understood unconditional love and I wondered if this was how God loved me? In my heart, I knew nothing my son could do that would cause me ever to stop loving him—nothing.

Please Reveal Yourself

I started praying or well talking out loud, “please reveal Yourself to me.” And I held an intention that God would do just that, and throughout the years, He has in many ways.

In 2011, I heard a Voice tell me I would be the one to donate a kidney to a stranger. And I did. We were a 1-in-20 million match!

Almost 10-years later, David is healthy and living life. He had the opportunity to dance at both of his daughter’s weddings, and he has a beautiful relationship with his grandson.

All of which wasn’t even possible until I read a Facebook post that led me to believe in the impossible.

Then God called me to write a book—a book! What was He thinking? Daring to Believe chronicled my spiritual journey throughout the kidney donation process. It told my story about the crazy experience of hearing a voice and how it affected my life and subsequently my family and David’s family.

Throughout all of this, I continue to ask God, “Please reveal Yourself to me!” He has never let me down.

It’s like peeling back an onion. With each new layer, a new Face of God revealed Itself to me.

Akashic Records

Recently, my question led me to the Akashic Records. Understanding how God created my soul to manifest and how I have perpetuated separation from Him through my negative karmic choices has opened my eyes to enlightenment.

I am no longer alone and I feel I finally get “IT!” Or so I think for now because I continue to ask the question, “please reveal Yourself to me.” I never know what the next layer will bring me, but I’m finding now that I’m enjoying the journey.

Learning to speak my truth and living life on purpose has not been easy. But, oh, has it been rewarding!

My favorite pastime is receiving the signs from Heaven. I continuously see the same number patterns—222, 333, 444, and 555 which I believe it’s the Angels telling me they and God are with me.

Bluebirds, blackbirds, and hawks visit me. Recently, a white owl flew a long distance to give a message. (He wasn’t supposed to be here in Charlotte, NC, in December, but he was in my backyard at 5 am—it was amazing!)

Currently, my journey is to help women manifest their life purpose through the Akashic Records. So, they can find joy, peace, and happiness in living their soul-inspired lives.

I help them understand how God created their soul to manifest and heal any negative karmic patterns keeping them from living their higher potential. My goal is to give them the “recipe” for manifesting based on who they are at the soul-level. Also, I help them put it into action in the physical world by creating a concrete action plan. These action steps shift their vibrational state enough to create lasting change to manifest their soul’s desires.

What If The Akashic Records Told You Your Life’s Purpose?

What If The Akashic Records Told You Your Life’s Purpose?

What if the Akashic Records Told You Your Life’s Purpose?

Have you ever asked yourself what your life purpose is? What is my life path?

The Akashic Records can help answer these and many other questions you have in your life.

When I first heard of the Akashic Records, I envisioned a library like room in the sky with Angels that managed it. And they would bring me this massive book that had every wrong thought I had ever done written down for God to judge me with—it scared the heck out of me.

However, that’s not what the Records are at all.

What are the Akashic Records?

The Akashic Records are a vibrational archive of every soul’s journey throughout time. They contain all thoughts, feels, or actions from all time for every soul that has ever incarnated.

The Records are not something we can see or feel. It’s within us and yet beyond us at the same time. Likewise, they are a memory bank of our soul’s history.

Think of the Akashic Records as an information super-highway for your soul. Like Google, you type in a question. It calculates the answer based on all the algorithms it knows about you. Next, it produces the search result based on all the information stored in its database.

Edgar Cayce describes the Akashic Records as—

Upon time and space is written the thoughts, the deeds, the activities of an entity – as in relationships to its environs, its hereditary influence; as directed – or judgment drawn by or according to what the entity’s ideal is. Hence, as it has been oft called, the record is God’s book of remembrance; and each entity, each soul – as the activities of a single day of an entity in the material world – either makes same good or bad or indifferent, depending upon the entity’s application of self — Edgar Cayce Reading 1650-1

Linda Howe who wrote, “How to Read the Akashic Records” describes it as,
“The Akashic are a dimension of consciousness that contains a vibrational record of every soul and its journey. This vibrational body of consciousness exists everywhere in its entirety and is always completely available an in all places. As such, the Records are an experiential body of knowledge that contains everything that every soul has ever thought, said, and done over the course of its existence, as well as all its future possibilities.” (Howe, 1)

Everyone has access to their own Akashic Records, but not everyone knows how to access them. Our egos get in the way. It’s hard to imagine the intangible, especially with our linear thinking.

I have been trained to access into the Records and know what to ask to receive the answers my client’s desire. And I do this through a modality created by Andrrea Hess called Soul Realignment.


5 Benefits of Accessing the Akashic Records and a Soul Realignment Reading


  1. You gain insight into the cause of why repeating limitations, obstacles, difficulties, and trauma that continue to occur in your life.
  2. You gain a clear understanding of how to manifest the life you desire, your life’s purpose, based on how Source or God created your soul at its origination.
  3. You will receive your unique “recipe” to shift your vibration to attract into your life the experiences you desire.
  4. You will create an action plan that puts you into alignment with your Divinity and Manifesting Blueprint, or your life’s path.
  5. You will gain a clear understanding of why the actions you’ve chosen, often unconsciously, self-sabotages your manifesting efforts.

If you have asked yourself what your soul’s purpose is or asked wondered if there was something more you were meant to do, then there probably is more. Your higher self is daring you to believe in something greater—the impossible or rather im’possible.

I would love the opportunity to help you manifest your soul-inspired life.

It’s All About The Day My Life Was Saved

It’s All About The Day My Life Was Saved

It’s All About The Day My Life Was Saved

At five-years-old, I had a near-death experience. It was the day Jesus saved my life. That may sound extreme or weird to some, but I remember it as vividly as if it happened yesterday.

I drowned in a swimming pool, and I remember the feeling of struggling until I wasn’t anymore. Then there was only the sense of complete love and peace. I never wanted to leave.

In my book Daring to Believe, I share with my readers my personal experience of meeting Jesus face-to-face and how He told me it wasn’t my time. He has always been with me and continues to show up just when I need a miracle.

Excerpt from Daring to Believe—Chapter Thirty-Two

The words caught in the back of my mind, as I remembered the day Jesus saved my life

I was five years old, and my mother had taken my brother and me to visit a friend of hers. An unusually hot day had prompted Mom’s friend to invite us to swim at her neighborhood pool. My eyes went wide staring at the pool. Jamie, my brother, ran off with his buddy, leaving me to play alone.

Not knowing how to swim, I stood on the first step leading into the water, white-knuckling the railing beside me. I bit my lower lip as my eyes darted toward my mother, making sure she was still nearby.

At the opposite end of the pool, the older kids played a game of keep-away. Oh, how I wished I was braveenough to join them, but I stayed on the stairs watching from a distance.

Brittany, the daughter of my mother’s friend, must have suspected what I was thinking because she drifted towards me with her hands on the bottom of the pool and her face just barely above the water. She looked beautiful and confident.

“Want to go over there?” she asked, nodding in the direction of the deep end. “I can take you if you want.”

I spun around and yelled, “Mom, can I go with Brittany into the deep end? She said she would take me. Please, Mom! Please, can I go?”

“I don’t think it’s a good idea, Amy. Just stay on the stairs.” “But Mom!” I pleaded again.

“It’s okay, Mrs. Gray. I know how to swim, and I won’t take her far—just to the rope and back,” Brittany responded.

Mom said, “Well, I guess it’s okay but just to the rope and back. And Brittany, Amy doesn’t know how to swim. So, be careful, please?”

Electricity shot off in all directions like fireworks within my tiny body. Mom said yes!

“I understand. I got her,” Brittany replied and then swooped me up in her arms. As we moved closer to the rope which separated the babies from the grown kids, my heart raced like a running away train.

“Do you want to go under the rope? I can show you how to hold your breath for a few seconds.”

My mind froze as I stared straight at her. Go under? Hold my breath?

“Come on,” she giggled. “It’s easy. Pinch your nose like this and take in a deep breath at the same time. You can also keep your eyes closed if you like.”

I did as she said and pinched my nose with my thumb and index finger and then together, we took in a deepbreath. I closed my eyes and fixed my legs tight around her small waist. Instantly, we were underwater.

A few seconds later we resurfaced, and Jennifer exclaimed. “Wasn’t it fun?”

I nodded with a shaky smile, wiping the water from my eyes with the back of my hands.

“We did it!” I shouted, when suddenly water drenched my

face again. A big blue ball landed with a loud thud right in front of us.

“Hey, throw it back,” an older boy shouted. Brittany handed me the ball, and I chucked it in his direction. Excitement spilled out of me as if I’d gotten a large present on Christmas morning—I was part of the group.

We watched the older kids play awhile; then, Brittany’s mom called her name and she dropped me.

I sank like a missile, and water rushed into my lungs. I tried grasping for Brittany—for anything which could help me. But my struggling went unnoticed. She was gone.

Wild with fear, I flailed my arms and legs frantically. My screams vibrated in my ears as darkness overtook me. I couldn’t think of the word, but I knew I was drowning.

I stopped struggling. A golden white light resembling a giant hand—created a bubble around me. I could breathe. A voice whispered, “You’re okay, Amy. I’ve got you.”

As an adult looking back, I haven’t the words to describe the unconditional love I felt in the bubble. Even the most exquisite words fall short. I know I was in the presence of the Divine Source.

I wanted to stay in the moment forever. Jesus understood and responded, “No, Amy, it’s not your time. You have more to do but remember I AM always with you. I will never leave you. Now raise up your arm.”

I didn’t want to, but I raised my arm, and within moments someone pulled me out of the water.

Years later, I asked my mother how she found me. “I saw your arm sticking out of the water.”

I could not have stood there by myself in the water with my arm raised because I couldn’t touch the bottom. And I didn’t know how to swim, much less tread water. Jesus saved me!

Did this experience transform me into the perfect angel? No, that wasn’t how life would play out. It took me yearsto remember my moment with Jesus and what He told me. But He never left me—no matter how hard I fought to forget Him or God.

Arousing me from my thoughts came Chuck’s voice as if an echo, “Are you ready to go home?”

Spots formed in front of my eyes as I blinked to open them. Above me, hawks circled lazily in the sky, an affirmation from the spirit world. Feeling the satisfying gleam of joy, I replied, “Yes. I’m ready.”

Fear—Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise!

Fear—Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise!

Fear—Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise

When you feel fear, do you “Forget Everything And Run” or “Face Everything And Rise”?

I don’t know about you, but when fear sets in, my stomach tightens, and flips around in somersaults. My temperature rises and sweat starts trickling down my back.

Being seen by others is my greatest fear. I would rather blend in with the crowd than be the one leading the charge.

Some of you who know me may find that interesting, mostly if you have seen me speak or present at the NKF Gala. I’m told I come off very calm and poised, which I’m grateful for because at heart I’m an introvert. I would rather be at home, in my pajama’s than on stage in front of hundreds of people.

However, that’s not how Spirit works through me. Unfortunately, my pajamas are not my divine gift.

Spirit loves to move through me when I put myself in the spotlight. But it terrifies me to do so.

The Beauty Pageant

As a teenager, I received inspiration from my higher self (at the time, I didn’t realize that’s where this idea came from) to enter a beauty pageant. Why my higher self thought this would be a great idea, I don’t know. I couldn’t even be a tree in a school play without spending the opening night in the bathroom throwing up, but entering a beauty pageant somehow made sense.

I went through the motions and applied. To my surprise, I got accepted. Now I had to come up with a talent. I couldn’t even walk and chew gum at the same time. What possible talent could I have that would be good enough for a beauty pageant?

I heard in my head, “People will laugh at you! You won’t measure up! You’re a failure! You should quit while you can.”

Our egos are powerful, and it’s their job to protect us from harm. And my ego had a four-alarm siren blaring in my head!

My mother just knew singing was my talent. She asked the church choir director to coach me. To this day, every time I hear “Under the Boardwalk,” I think of him encouraging me to sing louder than just a mere murmur.

Being seen and judged is my biggest fear and singing in front of hundreds of people paralyzed me.

That begs the question—isn’t being seen and judged the essence of a beauty pageant? What in the world was my higher-self thinking?

The fear got the best of me, and I “F$%ked Everything And Ran” as fast as I could.

As my escort for the opening processional, my Grandfather bought a new tux. I knew I disappointed him, but most importantly, I disappointed myself. I have always regretted not participating in that pageant.

Fear—Face Everything And Rise

Now, whenever I feel fear boiling up, I remember how I felt when I dropped out. It fuels me to keep moving.

If I choose not to take action because of fear, I know I will miss out on manifesting miracles.

If we don’t take action and move past our fears—Face Everything And Rise—we won’t create abundance. We are the divine creators of our own experience. Not taking action is still taking action, but it won’t necessarily produce the results we want.

So, this brings me full circle to today; I’ve started a new business venture, and it requires me to put myself once again out there and be seen.

Yesterday, I had an attack of the “what if’s,” and my ego once again wanted to protect me. “What do you think you are doing? No one will understand. Just stay home. It will be safer. Trust me.”

However, Spirit always works through me when I put myself out there. Miracles always happen when I step outside of my comfort zone into the unknown.

I am a Certified Advanced Soul Realignment® Practitioner. I work within the Akashic Records to help you remember who you are at the soul level and to clear negative karmic patterns in your life.

Please check out my website, and if you so choose, I would be happy to guide you on your soul’s journey to abundance. Thank you for letting me be of service!
