TRANCE CHANNEL- Business and Spirituality

Hello! thank you for finding and reading my post! Some experiences have happened for me to question things about businesses. When I meet business owners whether it was in person or on television, I sensed that their intentions for their companies are different than mine. There were so many energies that I sensed, the most common was to make money and be successful, others was for power, or ego, and there were some who probably couldn’t care less about the money, and more about how they touched peoples’ lives. There were some that just loved what they did and didn’t care about how anything else.

When I owned my art company, it was something I was very passionate about. I had an e-commerce website that sold art prints and also consigned independent artists’ artwork. It was very difficult, and I found myself working so hard and earning very little. To the point where I ran out of money, and the company went under.

I didn’t know that this failure would be a stepping stone to this website, and doing more with my own artistic, psychic, healing and channeling abilities. So I asked the question to my guides and the angels and here is what I got!



We are here Marie!

  • Who is here?

We are the Collective Consciousness made of angels and your spirit guides and others. We have come today to answer the question we already know you will ask.

  • Hello Everyone! Well I know I asked it in my mind earlier, and I got a summary of the answer, but I’ll ask the question again- it’s a difficult question to formulate one sentence, so how about just a run on sentence? LOL! I’ve come to experience that there seems to be different business running by different energies. I don’t know if it’s ego related or not but I’m noticing a definite energy difference. Why do some companies prosper in the spiritual field, and others don’t and they have the same intentions? Why do some spiritual businesses have monetary profit on the mind, and others don’t? Like from my own experience, I’ve tried to use my wits to run my company and the more I tried tactics, the more I failed. Yet when I don’t try it seems I get rewarded for my efforts. What’s the dilio? LOL! I see others who are very profitable with their efforts. Just wanted to know what’s that all about.

(Hear laughter) Yes this is not one sentence, and hopefully we can answer your questions today Marie. Regarding the energy behind businesses is also complex. There are different people who have assigned themselves lessons in this lifetime to learn. These lessons involve the things they create in the physical world. The business is a TOOL utilized for higher learning. The lesson is different for each. For example for you the reason why it has not turned out a profit in your art business is because you were not focusing on your higher lesson, which was how to serve humanity. This business was for monetary profit which you primarily was looking for. This was not what you came on earth to learn dear child. We know how much it hurt, but this was not your life path, and so we steer you on your path that you are on currently. Now you are not focused on money, you are focused on how to help others, and also your own soul joy or love. That is what you have come on earth to do dear one. We are here to assist you to guide you in your life path, and that is what happened. Do not look to your past experiences as failures. Look to them as experience of what did not fit, then when it fits, you will feel the contrast between what was your path all along, and what wasn’t.

To others the lesson behind a business could be to be able to stand on their own two feet. Or to be able to see that their ability of manifestation is limitless. All these businesses are ways for you to learn your lesson. The same thing as people coming into your life. But we are always guiding you all. We are steering you all in the direction you need to go. Some people have planned to experience failure of a business to know that they can still overcome that failure. It is all very intricate with primary lessons, and then smaller lessons combined, then fit in each others’ of the same plans. It is very miraculous indeed to see the behind the scenes planning of the Universe.

Some companies are ego related as you mention, but also a lesson, and the companies are still tools for that person to make choices. They choose, they experience. That is what businesses help you in giving you more choices. Choices bring you up to higher vibration, or lower vibration. Nothing is incorrect. It is all a journey and for you all to decide which direction you would like to go. (I saw a vision of different people each with a ladder on different heights climbing up or down)

  • OK wow I thought that this answer would take a few channeled sessions, but I understand. So basically no company is better than the other even if their first goal is money or run by ego?

There is no better than the other. Just different experiences is all. But in one way or the other, the main goal that everyone will experience in their lifetime will be unconditional love and how to serve humanity. Because we are all connected and once that awareness has happened, then choices will be made.

  • Ah – that’s kind of chilling and awe inspiring at the same time. So for me it was never about the money?

For you it was never about the money. You are here as you are doing now in your different gifts and ways you help humanity. Everyone does their part in helping humanity, some may be smaller than others, but through their experiences on earth, they will learn and choose a more loving path.

  • What about the negative ones? If everyone is doing their part in helping humanity? Sorry this is off topic, but I had to ask!

Everyone does their part. Everyone plays a role. So some have chosen to be the opposite to give a contrast so people can choose their paths.

  • Yeah that’s another topic altogether I guess

We are here to speak more when you are ready.

  • OK thank you so much for clarifying about the energy behind businesses. I guess I gotta mind my own “business” – Hahahahah! (hearing laughter, and Harry one of my guides did a facepalm)

Thank you for speaking with us today. We hope that it has helped others understand this complex energy and the understanding of roles of businesses. We will speak to you soon. We are only a thought away….


Hope this article reaches those who are trying to find answers to these questions on business and the different energies behind them. I never really know how they would answer, so for me it was really enlightening! If you have any comments on this article, questions on channeling, or any other topics of spirituality, I’d be happy to hear from you! We’re all in this together!

Hello! thank you for finding and reading my post! I have met a new guide I call her “Sharlene”. I have asked for a psychic teacher to help guide me, and although I was expecting a physical person to cross paths with me, a few days ago in meditation I found myself in a classroom. I didn’t notice other people in the classroom, and this lady had a skirt suit with blond hair in her 50’s. As always I question myself if I am hallucinating or not and have been since I opened up in abilities. So I write my conversations down, and then I don’t judge or question, and share it, that if it resonates with others and helps them in any way, then at least writing it made a difference.

I asked Sharlene why her, and why not my angel Shaban or my other guides who I’ve already met. Apparently she has lived as a medium on earth so she would be most helpful, and she was picked by my guides to help, so in a way she has become my guide. I felt that she also helps others and does not work solely with me, so I guess anyone can call on her for help too! I also felt like she is a guide who is here temporarily.

I have written 2 other channels, and each one I seemed to get one lesson. I asked if there was homework- there is none! LOL! Maybe I will start writing what I get and maybe it will help others in their development.

So today’s channel which I would never have expected… was about my sugar addiction! I love sugar and desserts, and even when I was choosing the main image for this article, browsing all the sweets and desserts, I knew it was right. Gosh I just love french macaroons…I had the craving feelings, and my mouth was watering and I kept thinking about the Turtles chocolate I have in my pantry! Can you believe it, just when I wrote about sugar being bad, am I thinking about sugar and how to get my fix! The guides are probably doing so many facepalms right now! Oh well, everyone has their journey, and this is mine with sugar. I hope others can benefit from this channel, if they too are struggling to connect but didn’t realize sugar was maybe affecting the connection with their Guides.




How Sugar Affects Psychic Abilities

  • What is today’s lesson?

Sugar! Sugar is a chemical that disrupts your balance of psychic ability. It has addictive tendencies that would be very difficult for someone to quit. When you know you are addicted to something, you would hesitate to no longer have this substance in your life. For everyone, the addiction is different. But for you, your addiction is sugar. This creates a fogginess to your abilities and is not wise to do readings when you have consumed too much sugar. It will warp your readings and you may give incorrect information. We suggest that you start to do another sugar detox and you will notice a difference with your abilities and your overall well being.

  • Yes, it seems like lately I’ve been going on the deep end having a lot of sweets lately

It is normal and easy to fall back into the desire for sugar. Notice that when you cut sugar from your diet, you do not have the additive tendencies or desires to have it. Now that you have consumed much sugar for days, the addition has come back. Now you have cravings that will be difficult for you to stop.

  • How can others deal with this type of addition?

There are many things that people are addicted to. If they pause for a moment and see that they are doing in excess of a certain type of activity, or consume a certain substance that they feel they are losing control over, they may need to ask themselves why and what is this block stopping them from achieving a certain goal. They fill a void of emotion and soul. This could be weight loss, this could be a distraction to deal with an emotional issue, this could be also stopping people from living life in a way. Once you are aware of these unconscious actions, can they start to create a new pattern and will disperse the block, and they will continue on the path they are set out to do in this lifetime. There are many blocks for each person created as a lesson for themselves to overcome obstacles, and not to hinder them. They will realize their greatness in time.

  • Ok thank you, now that I think of it I seem to have many blocks- weight, sometimes a shopaholic, sugar.

Yes this is all obstacles for you to overcome, and we are here to help and guide you. You have free will, so when you are ready, we are here to help you. And there is no punishment from not changing. This is your lesson and you will deal with them all in time, as with all the others who are struggling too.

  • Well, this is a strange psychic lesson, this was one of the last things I thought I would get as a lesson!

It was the lesson that you needed to know first. This is a basic lesson of eating better to raise your vibration, and will be easier to meet ours. The denser foods will lower your vibration, and you will not be able to vibrate high enough to connect and hear messages.

  • OK I can see how that’s important! LOL! Thanks so much Sharlene

We are only here to help and serve you all. We thank you for taking the time today to speak with us Marie. We hope that this helps others find the connection with us also. We are only a thought away.


As blunt as a rusty knife, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! LOL! I hope this helped some of you or found this article amusing! Trust me I question most of the things I get as messages, but it seems and feels like I need to hear it, and learn it. If you have any comments on this article, questions on channeling, or any other topics of spirituality, I’d be happy to hear from you! We’re all in this together!

5 Things That Helped me Develop Psychically


Hi there! Thank you for finding my post!

Once again I find that so much time goes by between articles! I have been receiving some questions on development, and I haven’t found the time to post them! But I should make the time because I feel it will help others who find it.

Someone had asked me a great question on the major things that helped me develop and made an impact on heightening my psychic abilities. Mind you, at the present time, my abilities are undergoing yet another transition, so they are lessened when we have some other things to take care of. When I think back on my experiences of development, it feels like someone who was reminiscing of a wild time in college- it was an adventure and a unique experience to say the least! Maybe I will write about those in other articles! LOL!

Here are the things that seemed to impact me and heighten my development in psychic abilities that I am sharing from an excerpt of a response I gave on this inquiry: (We had already discussed Clearing of the Mind through Meditation prior to this reply, so Meditation would have been my “1A”! LOL! )

Ok I had to think about the question you asked – so having a mentor – she was a retired psychic teacher and we met when we were both volunteering psychic readings, I reached out to her because I was drawn to her, and we did a reading exchange, it was one of the best readings I’ve ever gotten- and she said to keep in touch and ask her anything- and boy I did! Anything at all I asked her about, and she was able to give the info right away. It’s kind of like if you wanted to learn a new language, you could go to classes, or you can find someone who can train you one on one would be more quicker and more custom to your speed and what you need.
 2. THE KEY:
Another one was to find the “key” to opening you. There is someone who will be the “key”. I don’t know if I’m the key for you, if you don’t open up more or gain more abilities since we meet, then I’m not the one and it’s someone else. For me it was that retired psychic teacher, once she said I could see spirit and angels, I was able to “see” instantly. A few times I was the “key” for others and they just opened up instantly. I don’t really know how that happens, or if it just happens to some people, but that blew me wide open! LOL!  So I don’t know if it will apply to you if it’s just practice or you are to meet with the “key” person to open you up more.
Also I found that my abilities heightened even more when I had a network of friends who had abilities- it was like we created a psychic web and pooled our energy. So even when I was chatting with them, whoever I was chatting with and myself got heightened in abilities, and we could pick up things to help the other. It was like a support network too! There were some incidents I really needed their help because I didn’t understand what was going on.
And development in connection with my guides/angel- if meditation doesn’t work, I suggest maybe find an activity where you feel spaced out- driving, taking a walk, exercising, daydreaming, it’s the same state as your readings when you pick up the messages or visions. And I don’t do this as much as I should, but I used to communicate daily with my guides. So I white lighted, lit a candle, and tried to maintain the same time each day, and I would have a conversation with them. It was actually really great. I would ask my mentor at the time tons of questions, and once I developed communication with my guides, she would start to say “ask your guides”- and so I became more independent from her. She told me that our guides are our best teachers because everyone is developing differently, and has different gifts and is on different paths, but our guides know our plan and life purpose here and we’ve planned them to be our guides here, so they are our best bet as teachers.
I didn’t have this problem when I was first open to my abilities. I could “see” clearly no matter what I ate. But slowly I was getting signs to eat less and less meat and processed foods. It was slowly a little at a time- no more dairy, not much meat, less sugar, caffeine – and I didn’t know that it had a connection to my spiritual path- but it’s all connected- body mind spirit and all levels have to be balanced. Now when I read I find that if I eat very poorly it feels like I clog my channels, and feel very numb to messages, and even cards that I’ve read for years seem like another language to me when I don’t eat well! I have 2 new mentors because I’m studying trance channeling, and she and the other mentor both talk about food and diet that helped them. One of them can go without food and just does water fasting to be a clear channel for events. I’ve gone only 24 hrs with water, and I felt a difference, but don’t feel called to fast completely. So just healthy foods for me. This may not be applicable for you, you could already be eating well, or may not be a factor that affects your abilities, but this seems to be important for me at this point of development 🙂


I hope this helps some of you that are looking for answers on this topic. It was very interesting for me to think back and see what had helped me on this journey! 🙂

I would love to hear from you if this helped you, or if you have any comments about it or any questions to ask in channel or about development. You can comment below or email me at

Wishing you all blessings and Happy Holidays/Merry Christmas! 🙂

Why Can’t I Attract Money – Why Does it Slip Through my Fingers?

Hi Everyone! Thank you for stumbling on this blog entry! I’m testing this out to see if it works but I truly believe that Spirit piggybacks messages to multiple people. I will try to do at least one per day in the hopes that someone finds this tarot reading and in some way helps them to! It doesn’t matter when I did the reading. What matters is that for some reason you found it and you’re reading it right now! I wish you blessings from Above, peace and love! Marie



Why Can’t I Attract Money – Why Does it Slip Through my Fingers?



I’ve asked our guides for their help in your reading regarding finances and money.

What never seems to amaze me is the odds of the cards, and I get the one obvious card that symbolizes poverty in my deck. In the past it shows that you’ve been not clear in judgement or thinking regarding money. You need to ask yourself also what happened in the past that the answer may be staring at you, as I feel a pattern of confusion or judgments. It’s either a change in mind-set, either you are going about it from the thinking of “lacking” or deserving of abundance. The reading shows that you do have all you have to change things around for you. And I am not sure if this makes sense, but from the reading it shows, that either you are fantasizing more than your means at the moment, and possibly fear to look at the reality of things, and once again it’s kind of like a pattern that you can choose to break. But it shows that your pattern can change. A suggestion would be less up in the clouds planning and also to deal with the financial situation instead of ignoring or pushing it under the rug. Things can change and with the Alchemist card and the Nine of Pentacles this is a good sign that you have what you need to turn things around.

I hope this helps you get some clarity in your finance and attracting money. Thank you for finding this post and I thank our guides for their help in these messages for you!


Sending love and light and positive energy your way!

Blessings- 333 – Marie

gift-553139_960_720Birthdays and Holidays feel so bittersweet to me because I always recall spending these times with loved ones who have passed on and I always miss their physical presence.

Yesterday was my birthday and the night before, I was staring at myself in the bathroom mirror at 1:30 am talking to my grandmother and asking her to visit me in my dreams that night. I was sensing her presence that she will be with me on my birthday. Our loved ones are always with us, but my grandmother was confirming it to me that on that day she will be there! At that moment, my husband got up from sleeping off the couch to go to the bathroom where I was standing, and he said in a sleepy voice “Happy Birthday again” (he wished me Happy Birthday at midnight already) and gave me a hug. My claircognizance kicked in (which is the “knowing”) that the birthday wish and hug from my husband came from my grandmother!

I asked my husband how it felt when he said happy birthday to me just now, and he said that it just came to him without thinking. The first time he wished me happy birthday he had to consciously think about it. So I told him what I received as a message, that it was my grandmother who was wishing me happy birthday through him, and he got goosebumps which I learned from my friend Carolyn that they’re “truth bumps” when your soul knows the information is true! 

And I also got the way she woke him up was saying to him “Mr Ketchup, Mr Ketchup time to get up” – and it was her nickname for him when she was alive because he put ketchup on everything, even the traditional food they cooked which is very odd for my family to see! LOL! And he got goosebumps again!

I do get to speak to my grandmother regularly when I try to contact her, but that day was extra special.

When people experience something whether it be noticing coins, or playing a song, or a memory pop in your mind, and then right after you receive in your mind a connection to a loved one who has passed, have faith that this is your loved ones giving you signs that they are still with you and love you. What my guides explain to me is that our loved ones who pass on become pure energy so they have no voice to speak with us, so they use what they can which is their own energy to contact us. They give you the connection in your conscious mind of the two things: what you noticed and who is giving the message.

So for example next time you hear a song that had a connection with a person who had passed on either on the radio or played in your mind, then you thought of that person, your mind will try to convince you that it’s just coincidence. Instead have faith that your loved ones just wanted to say hello and that they know that you think of them.

Hope this article finds the people that need to hear it.

Love and Light -333




I am delighted to share a meditation from one of my friends and mentors Carolyn Shilt. She has much experience and so much to share in Spiritual and Psychic development that I believe will help many people on their spiritual or psychic journey:



Meditation to Develop Psychic Abilities – Meet Your Guide/Angel


I have been asked many questions about how to develop ur psychic abilities and how to control them. Meditation is the key to developing control over ur psychic abilities and growing spiritually and psychically.
Passive – no action – Sit quietly relaxing.
Active – action. Guided imagery.


1. Choose a specific time to meditate everyday where u will not be disturbed. This helps set a time for u and ur guides to know exactly when u will be available. That way, they designate that time to u and u build a stronger vibrational connection.

2. Eat lightly before meditating.

3. NO DRINKING OR NO DRUGS should be taken before meditating or doing any psychic work. U can pull in negativity and demonic energy.

4. Do NOT meditate if u r distraught or ill.

5. Meditate in the same place daily as it builds ur vibration.

6. Always open ur meditation in a prayerful, serene state of being.

7. Ask for divine protection.

All nature meditates. The trees and the flowers go into some silence during some portion of the their yearly cycle. Usually, winter. This helps maintain balance in the world. This is called the Law of Cyclicity. So, it is natural for us to meditate.


1. Self growth
2. Health
3. Intuitive and spiritual development

Now for a short guided imagery meditation

Close ur eyes and begin relaxing. Taking some deep breaths in, know u r taking in positive energy. Exhale and release any and all negativity. Do this several times as u calm yourself and relax more and more. Now, ask for the pure, holy golden-white light of our Creator to be with u enclosing u in positive energy.

In ur mind, go to a place that u find peaceful and relaxing. Feel how good u feel and how the temperature is just perfect for u. Everything around u is good and u feel so safe and loved here.

Now as u look to the right of u, see someone walking towards u. This person is so kind u can feel the energy before they even get to u. Wave to them and invite them to come closer. As they do, u begin to see them clearer or feel them. Ask their name and now they r right in front of u. Ask what they r here for. Ask them to help u. Stay here and ask whatever u want and know u will hear their answers in ur mind. When u feel like u have what u need for today, simply thank them for coming and taking a couple deep breaths…open ur eyes and be back in the now. YOU have just met one of ur angel/guides. BLESSINGS

Hi Everyone! Thank you for stumbling on this blog entry! I truly believe that Spirit piggybacks messages to multiple people. I will try to do at least one per day in the hopes that someone finds this tarot reading and in some way helps them to! It doesn’t matter when I did the reading. What matters is that for some reason you found it and you’re reading it right now! I wish you blessings from Above, peace and love! Marie





Here is another Angel Oracle for you all that it may help some of you. Your Angel Oracle card is Romance and I will break it into Single or In a Relationship:

  • If you are currently Single and looking for love, the card is telling you that the Universe and Angels are guiding you to find love. Whether it be changes in yourself you need to look at to attract new love, or urging you to go somewhere or do something that will cross paths with a new love. Have faith that whatever is happening right now is for you to find love. You are very deserving, so I know finding love will not be with you staying at home every night with the doors locked! LOL! Go where your heart tells you to go. When you are ready you will know to trust the Universe and Angels to do their matchmaking

    If you are currently In a Relationship, this card is suggesting maybe it’s time to shake it up a little and rekindle the love and romance. Sometimes being with each other for a long time, things tend to get repetitive, and I feel that this is a card to plan to go do something you used to do together but no longer do, or go to a place where you had a date at the beginning of your relationship. I sense something like nostalgia and a place of laughter and good times. I see you reminiscing about the times you’ve had there and the feelings and thoughts you both had at the time. I know it’s going to be a wonderful walk down memory lane! And also with the weekend coming up, this card came at the right time!

    I hope this helps those of you that need to hear this, and I am so happy to finally pull a right side up position card for a change! Wishing you much love and joy! Blessings- Marie
