April showers bring May flowers correct?? Well, they sure do! If you would like the seeds you plant to bring forth blossoms, I’m going to tell you how!!
This month’s newsletter will focus on how to get the most out of your DAY, AND be happy to boot! Today, I will focus on a concept, a concept that is probably VERY familiar to all of you: expectation vs. disappointment. If you are anything like me, there are times when we give something hoping the person we are giving it to WILL RECIPROCATE. After the fact, we may start to tabulate the scores not only for THAT person but for everyone else in our lives too! Then a whole whirlwind starts to happen in our head as we think, “Man, I’m really getting the S$%^ end of the deal!” So we just stop all together, and wait not only for those people who don’t reciprocate but we start to evaluate EVERYONE. We keep the smile going, but refuse to reach out unless people start to prove themselves.
We then focus all our energy on what is NOT HAPPENING, and continue on our daily routine with not much to look forward to, basking in the fact that that something “is missing”. We then start to compare ourselves to others (which is a big NO NO) and the rest of the time spent not working or doing our chores is spent in our head thinking about what’s not right in our lives.
Does this sound familiar? If it does, I have some positive news for you, but it’s going to take some work and effort! Yes, that means you have to do something to create new experiences for yourself. You would THEN be responsible for your happiness and no one else. The good news is that you are not only in control of your happiness, but if you don’t GIVE AWAY the power to other people to “make” you happy, they ALSO NO LONGER HAVE THE POWER TO TAKE IT AWAY!! Now that’s a great trade off, isn’t it!!
I don’t care how much you tell me you’re happy just because you have a positive attitude and your outer world seems on track. Are you really happy when the day winds down and you’re alone with your own thinking? Do you spend time ruminating, with racing thoughts, wondering why people are acting the way they are? Are you playing on the pity pot when there is no one there to see you putting on a happy face??
Ok, so you may be saying, “Marisa, I get what you’re saying! It all makes sense, BUT some people are very draining to me, and I give give give and I don’t get back!” Well, I will tell you loud and clear, “I HEAR YA!!” And I would say to you that of course personal boundaries are important, and you should NOT do anything that YOU DON’T WANT TO DO. If you do not want to do it, and you feel drained, you should say NO. I am not mentioning to give at the expense of yourself. Relationships are not a “one way street”. And if one person is the giver and the other is the taker, it’s a relationship, but it’s not a healthy one! Because in those types of relationships, BOTH people are looking for outside elements of fulfillment, though opposite means.
If both people are TRULY happy, the relationship resides in flow, like a beautiful water fountain. The water is constantly moving, flowing and both help the other. It’s not stagnant, it does not stand still, and it if is in stillness, it still resides within a flow, within a beautiful constant.
You can also be your own beautiful water fountain, and stand tall! Instead of asking people to fill you, you radiate a beauty that others are attracted to. You don’t try to bring people to you, YOU JUST STAND TALL, FLOW AND YOU BECOME. You become an element of beauty that others marvel at, and appreciate the beauty within your natural state. You will not have to GET from anywhere or anything, because you ARE already and you shine! Your brilliance is within, even when no one is looking!
So, ok I think we are on the same page now lol. But how do you do this? You start by doing small things that make YOU happy each day. You say hello to people, you compliment others on a job well done, you appreciate the little things, and you start to DO THE THINGS that you’ve always wanted to start doing. Don’t tell me you’re busy, you “don’t have time”, or anything else. I could give you all my excuses too. All those excuses protect you from having to take some risks in life. Because deep down there may be a fear of talking to some new people, you may be apprehensive about trying something new, and being busy is a great excuse because you feel you are “doing something” when in fact you are just spinning your wheels!
Now, if you’re like me, you want to do it ALL at once. Try small steps. Go to a new breakfast place. Help someone. Appreciate someone or something. Surprise someone with a little gift to show you were thinking about them. These small steps and gestures of kindness will bring you more happiness in the moments of your day than any expectation you could place on another! Try it!!
Remember…the little things in life are the most magical
Have a great April!
Now onto the Mini Messages
Grover – either that is someone’s name or it is a reference to the Sesame street character! I feel two children around this family and there looks to be a graduation coming this summer. Grandma on the other side wants to mention “Grover”!! Perhaps whoever reads this will understand!
Sammy – They are giving you a “thumbs up” from the other side. You are doing a great job, keep up the good work!! Some schooling or training is also coming within the next year and a half, so get ready to go and don’t be bashful!! Something about baseball is coming up too, maybe “wiffle ball”???
Joey or Joseph – I feel like this is a younger boy in the living, pop pop on the other side is very proud of you especially with little league (a lot of these references today though). He says that you are destined to be very talented in sports and GREAT!! So keep going. I don’t know if this is connected to the post above but there is a Sam or Samantha reference here as well.
Donna, do not dismay. Those on the other side are supporting you during this difficult time, if you have had someone recently pass, know that they are helping them with this transition. There is an Andy or Andrew connection in the living with you who will prove to be very helpful and will keep you with a positive attitude! There is an older lady with curlers & bobby pins standing here with her hand on her hip!! She is giving you the no-no symbol with her hand. Don’t get into any trouble!! Keep on track, ok?
Stu/Stuie/Stuart – Is this an animal on the other side? If so, he’s doing just fine! I also see a black cat with white fur on the underside or chest. He is very happy!
George is coming in with a huge smile on his face. He is wearing a grayish green hat that looks pretty worn and showing me a fishing license. He is also showing me his workboots which is a sign that he thinks you may need new shoes or boots. The interesting element here is that his boots are sopping wet, as if he has been in a swamp or something. His socks are all wet too. There is a John connection to him, and a Joseph. He says your neck is stiff, and you need to stretch your muscles a bit. Don’t be too hard on yourself. There are several more challenges coming, 2 in fact, but you will move through them. It’s time to get away from the “train tracks” he says. Not sure what that means. He is also showing a red lollipop.
Jiffy, or Giffy, a nickname, someone on the other side says HELLO!!
Brenda or Brandon, it’s time to start getting organized! You have a lot on your plate and things are about to get VERY busy for you! Clean out your closet and clothes too, you don’t need it all!!
Victoria, smile and know and that everything you’ve been waiting for is coming!!
Gene, get that pedicure!!
How is March going for you? Are you having trouble making decisions? How is your love life??
“Could this be LOVE??” Hmm, that’s ALWAYS the question! No matter how many times I see clients for a Connection Beyond session, there is always a point where they ask about their love life! Young and older, it seems to be a category that sometimes baffles, amazes and evades us. Questions such as, “Is he/she the one?” “I’m single and I keep making the same mistake.” “He’s a nice guy, but…” “I’ve been married a long time, but I’m just not feeling it. Is there someone else out there for me?”
It seems that wherever we go in the world, true love is sought out and so is the fantasy of it. From advertisements, to movies and sappy song lyrics, we get our heads in the clouds thinking there is an end all be all. Problem is we expect a “perfect love”. What is perfect in the ideal sense is not the state of love that the partnership begins with, but evolves into it by the leaps and bounds that the two people WORK at it and are WILLING TO GROW INTO IT.
In my opinion, and it is ONLY an opinion, people give up and HEAD OUT way too soon. Did you ever hear the phrase, “Don’t quit 5 minutes before the miracle occurs?” Well, sometimes breakdowns in the relationship are really pivotal points to it’s growth. Eventually that feeling of “true love” comes to fruition. And yes, while there are those RARE instances where two people meet, fall in love and share 50 years of bliss, most of the time relationships take work, but the results will be worth it!!
Ok.. so, a friend of mine, let’s call him “Ed”, really inspired this inspirational message for this month. I was driving on a road trip for work and I usually spend some time catching up with friends, etc. So, as per our usual conversation, Ed calls with his weekly and/or monthly update on his love life. After months of watching him go through several misguided attempts and some bumps along the road, I started to see that he was playing out a little bit of a pattern and after attempting to give “a lot” of advice early on, I started to lose count of the who’s who in the chronicles of Ed, and just became a listening ear and support. It started to seem like the same story every time, just a different situation, and he knew other friends thought that way too.
So he started the conversation with, “I know you are going to think the same thing..”Ed is really into this girl, thinks she’s the one, THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT, blah blah blah.” And I’m like, “Yeah, probably”. He’s said, “I know. But I want you to just listen, THIS ONE IS DIFFERENT. I started to chuckle, because I knew of course this one WAS different (in name only). These relationships are usually like firecrackers, starting with extreme intensity and ending in a pile of dust after the grand finale! Then after the show, everyone just leaves the baseball field and goes home LOL. And then the cleanup crew is left with all the mess. Problem was Ed went home with the rest of the crowd too, and didn’t see any of it!
Let me preface this by saying that Ed is a great dude. He’s fiercely loyal once he commits to a woman, is both a sensitive and equally rational guy, and had enough hard knocks in life that he maintains a certain level of wisdom about the realities and expectations of a true relationship. So, I’m sure you’re thinking, “Wow, sounds like a great catch! What’s wrong with this dude?” Well I couldn’t figure it out either, but what he told me and what he went on to explain paved the way for some great content! I was extremely impressed and inspired by his plan and think he holds a little bit of a “secret” for men and women to know prior to getting into a serious committed relationship. This is definitely something you SHOULD look for, and EXPECT.
Ed went on to explain to me that even though he was looking for the “right one”, he still kept many of the wrong ones in the “background”. Some he kept on a string “just in case”, some were “plan B’s”, some were old flames that didn’t really amount to much, while others were those he wanted to “cross of the list”. There were even those that he had no interest in that were good to keep around when the ego needed a boost. And lastly. there were the few clinger on’s that just kept him feeling guilty and he told me he just “felt bad” cutting them off. So basically while meeting other people and beginning new relationships, Ed’s phone was a BARRAGE of texts, phone calls and facebook messages from women that were just not right for him. And he told me he just DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT even though he would start new relationships and want to start off on the right foot.
He suddenly realized that THIS woman was someone who was worth it, and that he didn’t want to screw it up. He realized that he was turning his phone on silent and/or covering it up getting anxious that one of these women would pop up on his phone when he was out with this woman he really cared about. He didn’t like feeling this way, and a moment of clarity came over him. He told me that since he really wanted to give this a fair shot, and since he wanted in 100%, that it wasn’t fair to keep the other lines of energy open and available, because it TAKES AWAY from their relationship. While subtle, this is very true. He just didn’t feel right, and if he was going to really put his all into this relationship, not only did he want to take it slow, but he wanted her to feel secure that there was no other woman, figuratively or energetically, messing with the connection.
So ONE BY ONE, he started to call each person and tell them in whatever way seemed right to him at the time that he was getting into a relationship and that the contact with him would change. Some understood, some didn’t, and surprisingly some were happy for him and wished him well. He didn’t tell the girl he was dating yet that he did this, but he was planning on it. He told me that no matter what the outcome was, this was something he felt he owed to himself to see if it was right without all the distractions of these other connections.
I was really surprised and proud of him, because this decision was not forced on him by a woman and he wasn’t pushed into it. He did it on his own terms because he felt it was the right thing to do. He realized that having these connections was not helping him connect on a deeper level with someone, because other connections were a distraction and in a sense took away from the new connection. He also realized this wasn’t fair to him or to the woman he was with. It started to renew my faith in people to do the right thing.
So many women, myself included, have been in or are currently in relationships where there were/are others in the background that just made things very uncomfortable. We are used to letting things go, and deal with things that we don’t want to be dealing with just so we could keep these relationships in our lives. We stop asking for what we want and accept so much less than what we require and what is of importance to us in partnerships. So many women come to me with this issue and don’t want their men to feel like they’re crazy, or don’t want to “push them away” by seeming jealous.
Note about this: your man/woman shouldn’t be putting you in situations that make you feel uncomfortable or jealous. Initially, you may feel that you are in the wrong, and you stick it out. Sooner or later you find out that you had every right to feel that way, because you were feeling an energetic disconnect when your relationship SHOULD BE THE PRIORITY.
This conversation renewed my faith that there are still people out there who will do the right thing without being coerced or told, and if your relationship is the priority, the person should want 100% of the experience, not 75% YOU and 25% outside distractions. Do not be afraid to state what you REQUIRE early on, because what you settle for you will ultimately receive, and you’ll be coming to someone like me asking what you are doing wrong. By that point, you’ll be emotionally attached and will have a hard time getting things to turn around in another direction. Don’t make things harder on yourself.
As for me, I have had a lot more male friends than female friends in my lifetime, and for the most part are on good terms with people I have dated. Being in my 30′s, most of these guys are married or in serious relationships and I don’t have the same contact with them I once did. And that’s ok, because these guys have wives and kids, and I understand that their significant others may not be too happy with daily contact or texts with other women. But some people don’t understand that, and see no issue with it. And that’s THEIR RESPONSIBILITY to fix, not yours. You shouldn’t have to monitor other women or men. You shouldn’t feel constantly anxious with other connections, and your partner should make you feel like you are NUMBER ONE period. If you give yourself away for less, well then you might want to take a look at that. Make a list of your absolute definites and MAKE THEM CLEAR from day one, especially when you both decide to get serious.
I asked my friend if I could write about our conversation in this message, and he was surprising excited. He said that if it makes one guy realize that he wants to do things another way, or inspires a woman to want something better, he feels it would be worth it!
So, thanks Ed for your inspiration and your commitment to taking some risks for someone you care about! I’m sure it will pay off. And I’m sure Ed will be happy if it pays off for some of you too
All my best,
NOW ONTO THE MINI MESSAGES FOR March 2013
Yes, these messages could be for ANYONE, and sometimes for more than just one of you. Spirit works in mysterious and amazing ways!
Sylvia: It’s time for a break and/or a VACATION! You are really starting to feel worn down and a little grumpy every day. It’s time to give to yourself. There is a Ann, Anthony or Toni connection in the living that could be a good person to connect or reconnect with!
Diane: Wow, your husbands dad on the other side wants you to know that he is very happy for how much care and love you give to his son. He is very happy the two of you are together and is mentioning an increase in finances or investments this year! Looks like a possible surprise of a sudden windfall of money will come to you! Will you buy a boat?? Hmm, who knows! But enjoy yourself, and don’t stop entertaining your friends. They need you just as much as you need them.
John on the other side wants to come through and acknowledge the new baby coming in (or already in the family). This is a granddaughter and he WILL BE at the Christening! He wants to acknowledge his son living and a MAR connection male. This could be a Mark, or Marty/Martin first or last name. He is mentioning old school music and singers and “Old Blue Eyes”. I believe it is his son who just had the baby, and he is thinking of his dad often. Know he is right there with you! And I smell shoe polish!!
Gwen/Gwendolyn There is something about homemade chocolate chip cookies coming through from someone on the other side, and some rare costume jewelry. The woman who passed was a little flamboyant and loved her broaches and shimmer! She also is mentioning her red “pumps” and lipstick that she wore even as she was older. She always looked VERY put together and the smell of light floral perfume that she would “spritz” the old style way is surrounding her. She is mentioning crocheting, and some hats that she would make. She also mentions a very valuable china tea set with landscape artwork on the porcelain. Someone has this set of hers and she wants you to take it out, display it and CLEAN IT, because, according to this lady, they are VERY valuable! She is glad she left her smaller diamonds with you as well!
Todd, get a move on! You are getting lazy and are not pursuing your creative endeavors. Start writing again!
Laurie/Laura/Lauren This seems like a younger girl or woman here in the living. They are saying to watch your weight and keep exercising and also to watch your driving, especially in the rear view mirror, always look before changing lanes and clean those windows! And someone on the other side is mentioning something about bowling. I believe this is a male and female coming through, husband and wife, and they husband loved bowling, and possibly had his own gloves and ball. I think he was in a league too, and was connected to the local VFW! They both send a lot of love to all the family!
Ok that’s all for now
Have a wonderful new energy January 2013!
Marisa Liza Pell
For some reason, this quote really stuck out to me, and could be interpreted a few different ways. In the past, I have mainly used Facebook for my social media, however, I have been finding much inspirational content by browsing twitter and spending some time on my twitter feed. If you are not following me there, please do @marisapell.
As I noticed the above quote, I stopped for a second and thought about it, and then moved on to reading other content. However, the events over the course of the next few days had me ponder it a little more and inspired me to write about friendship and how it could shape you, move you, and elevate you to be a better person. And how important it is for friendship to be a part of a lasting loving relationship.
After a long week of work, I was able to spend some quality time with friends I hadn’t seen in a while. I was able to be in the moment and present with them without having somewhere to go or something to do. I spent time with various friends on separate occasions, and realized just how important this was for me to number 1: just be and number 2: see the events and conversations as a means of some heavy self reflection.
I was feeling completely drained, tired, and kind of out of it. Part of me just wanted to sleep! However, since it was my birthday last month, there were a few friends that wanted to spend some time with me, and it took us about a month and a few weeks to finally get together. Just the fact that they wanted to have a special day for me, even though it was almost a month and a half later made me feel very special to them. So, before I go on, I have to explain that as a person I am very “self reliant”, and this is great for my independence and helps me with goals, but it doesn’t make me a great “receiver”. I am a giver by nature. Look at the field I am in!
BUT…I love people, and it’s that love that keeps me going.
And I show a LOT of love, some people would say I love too much sometimes. And I guess this is the reason for this post. I’m thinking a lot of you feel the same way. Those who are reading this are the matriarchs of their home, the women & men in the helping professions, those in the intuitive field, and those who just take on way too much at the expense of themselves. I am always learning, and the people who love me often let me go (and sometimes I’m not doing the right things) but they are always there when I am ready to seek some advice and just plain ready to sit down, shut up and listen. I have many long term friendships, which I am truly grateful for, some I speak to daily, some I haven’t seen in 5 years. However, I know that I can call any one of them up and say, “I really need to talk right now” and they would be there. And what I tell them will remain without judgement, but that doesn’t mean I won’t get a kick in the A#%! My friends are honest, loving and truthful with me, but not honest with the intention of breaking me down, criticizing me, or giving me a feeling that they may use it against me down the road.
Did I always have these types of friendships? NO. There was a time in my life where I let no one in, kept people at arm’s length and basically was just the funny girl who made everyone laugh. I was there for others but was not able to ask for help in return. I didn’t have clear boundaries, and I didn’t know how to resolve conflict. Therefore, I had a lot of intense friendship “romances”, where when everything was perfect we were together 24/7 but as soon as there were issues or a problem, the friendship would hit a silent period and fade. I had no idea that people would love me if they knew I wasn’t always funny. I thought it they found out I had a serious side, if they knew I was a person who didn’t like to talk much sometimes, and that I really did enjoy a deep conversation that maybe they would think I was boring. I know, it sounds weird now even writing it, but deep down, I felt that if I didn’t keep everyone entertained at all times, they would get bored.
One of the great friendship moments I had was when I was in graduate school from a great friend who I spent hours on the phone with analyzing my crazy relationships. We were both really interested in psychology and loved anything that had to do with it. And there were no romantic elements to this relationship, just pure friendship. Plus, how did we both meet?? In class and we were both were part of the same Improv Comedy venue (you can laugh now)! He was a regular performer and I was taking classes. This friend was really the only one during that time that saw a deeper side of me, the side that wasn’t running around being loud and making jokes.
However, it was always “after hours” on the phone or when noone else was around. When we hung out at school, or with our improv friends, or went out at night, I became that “larger than life” personality. And do I still have that side to me? Absolutely yes! Humor is a huge part of my life, but by all means it’s not everything. I still embrace that side, but after many years of working on myself and changing the parts of my life which were causing me problems, I am able to embrace and SHOW the other sides of me.
One night my friend invited me out with the other actors that were part of his touring troupe. These people were already performing comedy at the venue and basically their next step were spaces on the main stage, which was a big deal in the thriving Boston comedy scene. In the history of the place, there have been some main stage performers picked up by Second City in Chicago and even went on to perform for SNL. Of course, I really wanted to follow in their footsteps or just have the opportunity to perform on that stage! I was just there taking classes, and performing with a small troupe over at another less known venue on the outskirts of Boston. But of course, I felt the pressure when I went out with these people to be funny, if not HILARIOUS, because after all, they were funny people. OMG. I can’t believe I am writing this, because now it sounds so ridiculous, but that was my mentality then.
So on that night out, I noticed that all these “funny” people weren’t really that funny. They were actually a little boring, the conversation was wanting, and we kind of just sat there at a coffee shop after dinner and a show and they quietly shared some inside jokes and minor gossip. A lot of it was “shop talk” about the inner technicalities of the show or people/things they were annoyed about. Nothing was really over the top, funny, or even remotely entertaining…..except me. (Well not really funny, very over the top, loud and obnoxious). I wanted them to notice how funny I was. I figured I had to take it up a notch, even more so than my normal crazy personality, I went to the utmost extreme. People just looked at me weird, and kind of laughed, but not in a really funny way.
I noticed my friend wasn’t calling as much, and when I did reach him, he was a little distant. Finally, (and this was the first and only time he ever did this), he said, “You were kind of out of control the other night, and a little embarrassing”. “You were way over the top, and I don’t understand why you think you have to act that way. I know you in a different light, and I really like what I see. Why don’t you show other people the side of you that I see? It’s much more attractive.”
I was stunned. I was silent. I just sat there on the other end of the phone and couldn’t say anything. Everything I believed about friendship, about making friends, about keeping them, this was all completely against what I thought to be the truth. I HAD MY CONVICTIONS. All that I felt and what I thought I knew was challenged right then and there. I told him I felt the serious, deeper side of me was boring. He said it was the most interesting. What? This couldn’t be true. He was the only one who saw the other side of me, the side that wasn’t truly smiling all the time, the side that was down, the side that held vulnerability, the side that liked to analyze psychotherapy and all it’s angles. To me that was sooo boring and kind of dorky. Why would someone want to sit there for hours analyzing people?? Well it was fun to me and to my friend, but that was as far as it went.
Needless to say, I don’t think I ever forgot that. He lit a fire within me, but I must say that it didn’t change me over night. It planted a seed somewhere, and after many years of change and rebirth, his thoughts proved to be true. I have come into my own since then, but it probably took me a good 7-10 years to integrate it all. At that point, I was divided, mind body and soul, and when there are divided convictions, it’s almost impossible to make decisions out of your truth.
Conviction Of Heart / Focus
Yes, a lot of you wrote about focus on facebook when I asked what the quote symbolized for you, and I feel the same way. It has been a long while since my friend said those words, and there are times in life where we can’t see ourselves objectively. How we see things, our views, our wants and our needs can be really out of alignment. Sometimes it takes a friend to make us see that WE ARE STRUGGLING BECAUSE WE ARE LIVING WITH DIVIDED CONVICTIONS.
With True Conviction of Heart, there is no wavering. If you think in terms of your life decisions, when you were the most solid, the most strong of heart, you were also SOLID in your convictions.
After spending this weekend catching up with friends I haven’t seen in such time, I allowed myself to just sit, enjoy the time and receive what they had to give, whether that be their attentiveness, listening to their stories, catching up on events, or hearing insight. It was so nice allowing myself to be loved by them, and it’s such an amazing feeling to know that those that care for you pay attention to you, and spend their time thinking about you when they could really be doing something else.
A few of my friends spent a whole day planning things that I loved, small surprises here and there, and a lot of laughs. Obligation is one thing, and I know how it feels to give out of obligation and to be given to, and neither of those feel good. However, you know when people take the time to put a lot of thought into putting a smile on your face, it creates a ripple of gratitude. It took a lot of years and time for them to get to know me, and it took a lot of years and time to allow myself to be loved, and to accept it graciously.
During the time, they had seen that I was struggling with an inner focus, but I didn’t see it. They could tell by my expressions, the way I responded, and my energy that I was confused. Funny thing was I didn’t think so. I thought I knew where I was going, what I was doing and what I wanted. But by sitting and listening, I realized what my head was telling me, what my intellect knew and what my heart said were completely different. Shining the light on this made me realize that I indeed did not have solid convictions with certain situations in my life. Therefore, how could I choose? How could I follow a road when I kept looking back? There is no doubt in conviction. There is just a knowing of where your soul must lead. This definitely may defy your feelings, but feelings are not facts. And feelings run high and low. They change with the tide. However, the light of the moon always remains the same. Your inner knowing is your compass.
How could you or I make a decision, or try to force a decision when there is no solid conviction of heart? Sometimes, that conviction may be a tougher path, a road that is less travelled, and it may involve leaving things behind. However, we must not embark on that road until we have given ourselves ample time to have conviction of heart in the matter. To me this didn’t mean that I had to not listen to my intellect, because reason is a part of the process. To be solid in the extreme on either direction doesn’t contribute to the blend of the energies that is needed to focus. But if we only reveal to ourselves and to others one side of our story, how are we ever supposed to be at peace with our decisions?
Sometimes decisions are made in silence. Sometimes there is strength in it. Don’t you remember the teachers in your old grade school? They were always silent during the test.
I really enjoyed everyone’s input on Facebook, and I would love to hear what you all have to say next!
Have an amazing day!
February Inspirational Message & Mini Messages From Medium Marisa Liza Pell
Well February is the month of looovvveee, right? Usually it’s just a representation of the commercial holiday, but this year things are VERY different!
The energy for this month couldn’t be further from the truth! You may be feeling an overall expansiveness of your “feelings”. If you are normally a person who is not very expressive or has a hard time “feeling”, or if you are used to keeping your energy contained (yes, this is for those of you who keep people at “arm’s length..and you know who you are!!)…well… you will be feeling this energy to a much greater degree. You will wonder what in the world is going on with you!!
This is not an energy of chemistry, but rather an “opening” of many of your chakras so that your EXPERIENCE of interpersonal connections can be felt more in depth and in alignment with who/what/where you are going for your highest potential. This refers to SOULMATE connections and energy, because it is THROUGH these connections that you will be able to realize your dreams and goals. Also, the PERSONAL contracts you have agreed to before coming here will be activated now.
What does this mean for you?
Well to put it bluntly, people will fall away that no longer serve your energy. This will be as simple and as seamless as the relaxing tide. Many of you shifted during the 2012/2013 change, and experienced the MANY energetic powerful “detoxes” of the spirit. If over the 2012/2013 shift you’ve felt under the weather, went through huge emotional upheaval, and/or just felt downright BAD, congratulate yourself, because YOU HAVE SHIFTED!
You did the work, or should I say that the universe was ABLE TO WORK THROUGH YOU. What is the difference? Well, if your energy body was aligned PHYSICALLY first, you were able to be a vessel for the rest of your energy fields (…EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, SPIRITUAL AND PSYCHIC) to be aligned.
If you experienced PULLING, PRODDING, and feeling you JUST CAN’T HANDLE certain things anymore, you actually went through an energetic cleansing! (And maybe not even aware of it!). Your thinking could have consisted of phrases like “THIS SUCKS” or you could have been very comfortable alone. These are signs that YOU DID THE WORK. CONGRATS!! You are now ready to RECEIVE a wealth of abundance (and YES.. things that you could have only imagined!) Well, Believe It! Your dreams may very well come true this month
This could very well be a personal/professional dream or it could be (considering the energy) meeting the exact right lover & partner for you..and one for a lifetime! Now, why do I mention both? Well, because the heightened energy REQUIRES intimacy and sharing to the highest degree so that divine purposes of the soul could be achieved.
So, if you are with someone where you act as “roommates”, or you are “staying just for the kids”, or if you are involved in any sort of extra marital affair, or even committed to someone where you have a wandering eye, you are not in the right space for this energy to manifest and it could very well work against you. Because the new energy is supposed to flow, if you stay in something that is not your lock & key, there could very well be much to think about, because ultimately, you will not be comfortable. So consider this message carefully, and review your intimate connections. It is so important that you are aligned with someone for your divine purpose to be realized and if you are not with the right person, that they be released for their soul purpose so that they are able to experience their highest form of love.
If you are not married, this should be easier for you. If you are TALKING MARRIAGE, be very CLEAR as to your upcoming decision, especially if you are marrying in the year 2013. Do not do anything because of “time”. For example if you are someone who is thinking, “well it’s been many years since we’ve been together, so it’s about time”, or “we should really start having children”, or “it will be better for our taxes/pension etc.”. NOT RIGHT.
Let me explain something about this energy, it is NOT INTENSE. It is NOT CHEMICAL LOVE. It is all encompassing love on all five levels: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and psychic. IF IT IS RIGHT, you will not need to ASK anyone. You could very well meet, date and marry very quickly, for your soul knows its destiny. It is not an IMPULSIVE act upon lust, you will feel it at the soul level. TIME IS NOT A FACTOR IN THESE RELATIONSHIPS.
Normally and through human experience and logic, I would tell you to date a while, get to know each other, and be very careful with choosing your mate. In this instance, it is the reverse. The more time that goes by WITHOUT DECISIONS, the more the energy is NOT FLOWING, and the more THOUGHT that goes into WAITING…well it may not be right for your highest energy. Being unsure in this energy and staying in relationships or tied to people that are not growing WITH YOU and alongside you, will only prove to be draining.
People that are ALONGSIDE you as a partner on all levels will remain. Those that are not will not be joining you on your new journey. This is also true of friendships, groups, and activities during this time. There will be no torrid goodbyes. You will just know you have reached a new level and will AUTOMATICALLY EXIST IN THAT DIMENSION, A NEW REALITY. There will be no sadness for the energy left behind, because those of the new energy will need to align with you. The place you opened will be made available to someone else who is now linked to their new vibration, which will be your old one. No vibration is better than the other, it’s just where you are in your lessons and your energy.
BUT the good news is this: if you are free in spirit, free of old emotions, old ties, old binds, you are ready to make a new start. And this start is expressive, IMPRESSIVE, creative and spiritually aligned love! I hope to hear some of your stories!
Now of course, everyone’s path is different. This is just the energy available to you now. What you do with it is up to you! Free will people
Love and Blessings to You All!

NOW ONTO THE MINI MESSAGES FOR FEBRUARY 2013
Yes, these messages could be for ANYONE, and sometimes for more than just one of you. Spirit works in mysterious and amazing ways!
Tom: Watch your leg, knee and hip. If you are finding that you are straining with a manual labor job, and you are feeling sore, use ice or take a day off. It is VERY important. There is a father figure on the other side. When I say “father figure” I mean someone who could have been a mentor or someone inspiring to you, or “like a father”. He wants you to remember the antique watch or “stop watch” with the gold gears that you are able to see working when you “wind” the watch. You are meant to be in another line of work, something a bit more relaxing and creative, but connected to a business. It’s time now to move forward. Your health will become alive again. Also, you need a new pair of workboots and/or dress shoes! I would say both!
Bessie from the other side is giving a BIG SMILE to her granddaughter who she only knew when she was a very young girl. She wants to give a congratulations for the upcoming “nuptials” (this is HER word) and engagement party. She will be there, and loves you both. Children are on the way, possibly two! And a boy!
Clara and/or Carol. Time to close up shop and get that vacation home on the water. And you may be saying, “how will I afford THAT?” Well my dear like some fairy dust sprinkled on you, you will be magically at the right place and it will be the right time. You will possibly rent first and then fllllooowwww into it being ALL YOURS!! You have a knee issue, fluid too. Best to get that looked at. Hmmm, don’t know why I’m getting this, but, get rid of the vending machines???!!
Sal or Salvatore…oh nelly. You are barking up the wrong tree, or the dog is barking at the tree that needs to come down!! LOL. This spirit is very funny and speaks in puzzles. I think it’s grandpop (I was going to write grandPA and he corrected me, it’s POP!) He loved crossword puzzles and dirty, old, strong black coffee that really noone else would ever drink. And I must say this wasn’t HOT coffee. It’s was gross tasting and cold, and he liked it that way! He says you’re acting SILLY, calling you a SILLY PIE, and asking why are you worrying??? All is better than you think. He is mentioning a Carolyn or Caroline.
Midge, get a new hairstyle already!! You had the same one since 1972 girl!! From your husband on the other side!
Sarah with an AH. I am getting a very happy mother on the other side, who is showing me Jewish symbols. She was very devoted to her faith and to Temple. She wants you, her daughter, to get back to your faith, and mentioning reading the “small scrolls”, (I’m not sure what that means). Also she remembers you learning Hebrew at a young age and reading the Torah in front of a lot of people. You were very impressive with language even at a young age. She is SURE that if you get back to your faith you will see people that will put a smile on your face and you will feel better, and “back on track”. She is saying there is someone VERY important for you to meet there, and this person has golden light around them. You are supposed to receive a gift of a “golden connection”!
Frank, for god sakes, get off your A&%!!
Betty is coming through from the other side with the gift of a cranberry walnut poundcake ??? Wow this looks good!! She says, she left the recipe, so make it along with that Zucchini Bread! I could smell her baking!! So good, OH and she said you need the ripe and sour apples Happy Baking!!
Ok that’s all for now
Can’t wait to hear about all the love stories, proposals and surprise meetings this month!!
Have a wonderful new energy January 2013!

This Year’s Message Brought to You By A Young Girl’s Father In Spirit! Pretty Amazing!!
Happy New Year 2013!
And this January you will be READING SOMETHING MUCH DIFFERENT and is **inspired** by some heavenly beings. Hang tight for this ride kids!! This one took me by surprise too!
I promised an interesting message this month and boy do I have it! Every January I try to write something that will appeal to the energy of the “new year” i.e. resolutions, what’s coming, things to do in the new year..etc. It’s usually a very ACTION oriented and holiday flavored message. So, this year, I’m really thinking…what can I write? What is needed? I really wasn’t thinking of anything more than the basics, so I decided to poll my facebook readers on what type of content they would like to see. I received some interesting ideas, and decided to hold off another day to see what other feedback and comments came through.
What you are about to read IS NOT WHAT I PLANNED. The January message is more of a story leading to a message that DID NOT COME FROM ME! It seems that I needed a little inspiration too, and this time, it’s for all of us!!
What I didn’t mention was that from the time the clock hit 12 on New Year’s Eve, shortly after, I started feeling not so hot. During the whole week I was in bed!! Still under the weather, but feeling up to checking my facebook, I posted the poll. I wanted to see what was coming in, and plus it was late at night, and I was getting tired. I really needed the sleep if I was going to get back to work within the next few days.
Around 11:30pm, I received a text saying that a regular client of mine was on the online system and was requesting a scheduled call. The way the online system works is that if you are logged on, anyone with an account can get a phone reading with you instantly. However, if you are logged off, the client can still take a chance at a specified time frame to request you if you are available. They are aware that since you are logged off that the request could be cancelled if the reader is not available. So the reading is not a definite.
And I was definitely NOT reading this week, especially when I should be sleeping and getting well. A mediumship session takes a lot of energy! However, I looked at the phone and saw the user name, and something told me I had to take it. I can’t describe it. It’s just this feeling that I had to take the call. Funny thing was that she (her name is Kristen: Hi Kristen! lol) put in the request a few hours back and it was about to expire in 5 minutes! Since everything is part of a software component, I wouldn’t have been able to get to it if it were cancelled.
I was at my family home for the holidays, and asked my mom, “what should I do?” She replied, “when I see that look on your face, I know you have to give the reading. So try it, and if you can’t do it, just let her know.” I said “ok, I’ll try” and I put the call through. I told Kristen that I was sick off the bat, and she was kind of surprised I took the call, however she also said she had a strong feeling I would be calling her tonight and the session would happen. We had connected to her dad many times, and that night I thought that maybe she needed some insight into her life seeing as I just spoke with her recently.
I asked her what the nature of her call was. She said she didn’t know. I asked her if she had any questions, because I wasn’t feeling a spirit present, and she said “not really.” Oh boy, I was in for it now. This was going to take everything in me to continue. She said she just felt she should call. That’s really not the norm! So I thought that maybe I’d just do a general reading to see what comes up and that didn’t happen. And I’m already starting to get drained. In my head, I yelled that I NEEDED SOME HELP HERE!! SOMEONE BETTER GIVE ME SOME ENERGY TO GET THROUGH THIS SESSION. I required some pure energy from them so that I had the physical endurance to move through the entire reading.
I kept going but information was slow, I was coughing and struggling. All of a sudden, instead of a spirit or personal message, what came next appeared to be Kristen’s spirit guide along with a dog that looked like TOTO. I have done sessions like this before and what happens is they usually present themselves, have me describe them physically to the person, explain how long they have been with them, as well as the “themes” or spiritual lessons they are meant to be focusing on at the present time.
I told her, “Well I don’t have your dad here, but you do have two spirit guides here, and one is an animal guide.” She was getting excited about this. And then I heard one word: “PATIENCE”. Kristen started laughing and said she knew exactly what the message meant. What was even more interesting was that she mentioned the reason Kristen had the little dog as the spirit guide was to help her with the more serious side of her nature. Whenever she felt a jolt of playfulness come over her, it was her animal spirit guide giving her a boost of energy to be playful when she was getting too anxious or serious. Kristen laughed saying they were right on target.
I said the animal looked like TOTO from The Wizard of Oz. I asked her if her father liked watching that movie, and she said that it was one of his favorite movies! I felt her father’s presence to the other side. When I say the other side, the visuals of where people are standing are sometimes on either side of the shoulders, representing different sides of the family or in this case, spirit guide and dad. This was something interesting, because both realms were coming through at the same time. When a spirit guide or message from that dimensional plane comes through I am usually tapping into that “location” or vibration (in this case: spirit guide). The human spirits or incarnates are usually on a different level or plane. It’s a different feeling, and different reading. Now both worlds were coming together, dad was standing there with both of them!
All of a sudden I got a burst of energy and felt better. I started speaking quickly as if I wasn’t in bed for the past 5 days and it wasn’t after midnight! Messages were coming through effortlessly and I felt great. My need for energy came about 15 minutes into the session, and I was literally “upped”. I no longer was speaking slowly, coughing or feeling drained. Before I go into the next part of the story, I need to mention the importance of what is referred to as “detail” in readings. Now, I could tell Kristen that her dad is coming through and his message is “be patient”, which is all well and good, or I could provide “evidence” (or what is secondly referred to as “evidentials”) in mediumship to first give undeniable details that it is indeed that person. This is important so that the message of “be patient” is heard loud and clear, and is taken seriously. Plus, the person needs to REALLY know that they are speaking to their loved one.
Let’s face it, some people are better at communication than others, and it is the same in the spirit world. There are spirits that are much better than others at their “messaging” techniques, and Kristen’s dad is absolutely amazing with what he can do, to the point that it gives me faith when I’m feeling down and out. The things that come through during a session with him are amazing. Next, he started mentioning little things, inside jokes, moments in life and special things about Kristen and their relationship that only they would know. Again, he blew me away.
He started to laugh after the spirit guides gave their one word message, and said that he agreed. Kristen needed to be patient. She kept thinking she needed to “do something” to MAKE her future happen. In the past few readings, he mentioned how happy she would be. Kristen definitely wants a relationship, family, career, the whole bit as most of us do! But at 19 she is on the fast track and wants it all now!! Even though in the past few readings they said, “don’t worry it’s all coming”, Kristen still found herself filled with much anxiety that if everything remained calm, the other shoe was bound to drop. She wanted a guarantee that her happy future was coming, and since she didn’t see it yet, she was getting anxious. She is also someone who is a little more comfortable when there is a lot going on. The more stress the better!! (haha let’s hope that changes!) She is not used to quiet and calm energy. The calm is kind of weird for her. I’m sure some of you could relate.
Her dad then started to give VERY definite details to show that it was him…details I’d like to share to show how amazing this connection was! In his normal, sarcastic, dry wit, he said, “Don’t worry about anything. Everything is going as planned, and you don’t have to DO ANYTHING. You are on the right track, and will only make yourself crazy by trying to FORCE OR DO SOMETHING, and by making the wrong choices, you could actually get yourself OFF TRACK, ***SO PLOP YOURSELF ON THE COUCH, HAVE A BAG OF POPCORN, WATCH SOME MOVIES AND DO NOTHING.*** And then he said something VERY interesting, “JUST DON’T EAT A BAG OF CHIPS”. I was definitely confused about the CHIPS comment, so I had to ask Kristen what that meant! And Kristen said, “Yeah that’s my dad!! He knows I can’t eat chips, I get a rash.” He also mentioned several other details which I find so fascinating that I’ll put them here. I had to take notes during the session or I wouldn’t have remembered them:
And there were many more things that I didn’t write down. All in all, Kristen knew without a shadow of a doubt this was her father. She was starting to have less faith IN THE UNIVERSAL PLAN FOR HER, and was starting to get anxious, as most of us do, thinking, WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN??
Do you relate to Kristen?
I bet you do! Right before the new year, most people are thinking they have to start DOING things to MAKE things happen. Kristen’s dad’s message was actually for all of us. He wanted me to make sure people knew that sometimes, things are meant to be quiet. We are meant to take action on the things we are supposed to be taking action on: taking care of ourselves, our family, being healthy, working to the best of our ability and doing the next right thing.
Sometimes, THAT’S ALL WE HAVE TO DO…provided we are on the right track. Sometimes we get anxiety when things aren’t happening fast enough, when we don’t have the answers, and basically WHEN WE ARE NOT GETTING WHAT WE WANT. Anxiety creates a vacuum, the energy swirls like a washing machine. Our channels remain clouded by all this “noise” and we are not able to get clear messages of what we are supposed to do. We then may start making poor choices which will continue MAKING MORE OF A MESS, when just simply DOING THE NEXT RIGHT THING would continue leading us. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is not saying BE LAZY. There are times to step it up and take action. However, with these huge shifts in the energy right now, your physical being is going through many vibrational changes. That’s enough to take on. So take care of yourself, and enjoy the quiet moments! Be present, and love those around you. Instead of worrying, spend quality time with the people you love!
Well, Kristen GOT the message, and she sure didn’t LIKE IT! But she knew it was true. She just didn’t believe that’s all she had to do. She was just meant to understand that all she needed to do was to be patient and know that the universe was working behind the scenes for her! Her spirit guide laughed when she was asking about relationships. She didn’t want to wait. They quipped, “Don’t you understand we have to get HIM ready for you too!!!????” Wow, what a great point! We don’t think about all the work the other side has TO DO to get people together!! So let them do their job and get out the way!
That understanding gave me a wave of energy. We all need to hear that. We only think of ourselves sometimes. We are not thinking of the divine plan and how much the other side has TO DO to keep people “on path”. They mentioned that Kristen should see the film, The Adjustment Bureau to illustrate this idea. I saw the film and they kept showing me scenes but I couldn’t remember the name, so I had to look it up!
Most of us don’t realize that WE PUT THE MONKEY WRENCH into our OWN PLANS because we want instant gratification. We screw it up!! Wow, what an insight! By having all this anxiety, and taking action because of these feelings, we are DELAYING what is meant for us!!
Then Kristen’s dad said: “You’re on the right train, why do you keep getting off, running around the platform and getting back on? What are you looking for… a snack shop with twinkies? They don’t even have twinkies anymore!” Kristen said that’s exactly what her dad would say and how he would say it. Plus HE LOVED TWINKIES!! But he did tell her she DID HAVE TO FINISH SCHOOL and STOP PROCRASTINATING. Kristen said she KNEW her dad would mention something about school if she called. So, you see, the things they NEEDED her to take action on, she was putting off, and all the other things she couldn’t control she was having anxiety about, and putting energy there!! And the energy wasn’t going anywhere! So, action is required, but in the right places!
This was great stuff, and I was learning a heck of a lot too! Turns out he wanted this message to go out to everyone!! I tried to write this message earlier that day, and there was a technical issue with my blog!! So I was delayed then too! He then mentioned John, which Kristen wasn’t so sure of, and then John Lennon. Kristen then said her dad was a huge BEATLES FAN, but she didn’t know much about the music. He told her to go look up the lyrics to “Let It Be” and really, really, take them in. He also said that John plays music up there too! Kristen said that her and her mom Debbie always wonder about that. He was a music guy! We ended the session shortly thereafter and Kristen said, “Wow, that was one of the best sessions I had connecting with my dad!” I couldn’t believe it. We were on the phone over an hour. My mom even peeked in and couldn’t believe I was still up and with energy to spare, AND STILL ON THE PHONE. The message was filled with such simple spiritual insight, but with great detail, so that Kristen knew for sure she could relax and take it easy, cause THEY HAD IT COVERED.
When was the last time you let the universe handle the steering wheel?
Let It Be – The Beatles
When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree
There will be an answer, let it be
For though they may be parted, there is still a chance that they will see
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be
And when the night is cloudy there is still a light that shines on me
Shine until tomorrow, let it be
I wake up to the sound of music, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
There will be an answer, let it be
Let it be, let it be, let it be, yeah, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.
I hope you enjoyed Dan’s Message For You All (Kristen’s dad in spirit). Thank you Dan! And thank you Kristen for letting me share about your amazing connection. Thanks Debbie for being there and supporting Kristen to connect with her Dad.
Now for more messages from spirit!!
Here are the MINI MESSAGES FOR JANUARY 2013
- Steve in the living. You need to watch your leg. Please get it checked. Your grandmother in spirit is here, and she is saying, “Yes, I still look like a poodle!” You used to make fun of her for her hairstyle. The name Romayne is connected to her somehow and the name Jack. There is a Walter connection on the other side who is ancestor who passed a long time ago. The woman is telling the older lady here to get her nails done! She still has much to do! There is also a Joe or George connection, and a special mug that the older woman who is here drinks out of. There are many rainbows still to come. Be positive!
- Mary in the living. There is a Frank or Francis here from the other side. He is telling someone to stop smoking. I think it is your mother that is living. He is concerned for her health due to smoking. He is wearing a fishing hat and showing me his fishing license!! He is saying also that you need your road or driveway paved, as it is very necessary for your cars! Yes, the other side is playing with your ears, they have been itchy!!
- Dan or Danielle in the living. You need to get rid of the drama in your life. You are the one making it worse. It is not everyone else. Your spirit guides want you to stop blaming other people. You continue to find yourself in the same situation year after year. You will not do well to continue drinking wine, or going to the bars. The peace you are looking for will not be found socializing. A vacation near water will cleanse your spirit.
- Peter. Stop and really reflect on what’s important. That is where you should be.
- Samantha. There is a young woman in spirit who passed about 3 years back who is also with a grandmother of yours on the other side. They are mentioning delays that you have been met with, and they really need you to see things from a little bit of a different angle. They are a little disappointed that things aren’t further along right now, and they are saying you really need to take a look at the “idea phase” which was about five years ago. They want you to go back to the “basics” of your original plan and don’t deviate. This is where you will find your success. There will be highlights to your career in California, or the new beginning. Focus there, and then go further WEST.
- Susan, things will calm down this year. You can kick up your heels and relax. It’s all behind you. The best is on it’s way!! Keep reading the above message to get in your zone and enjoy the day! Actually, enjoy the best year!
Have a wonderful new energy January 2013!

So I thought it would be a good thing to talk about this “ending” from a fresh and positive perspective, and from messages I have been receiving about this time. Forget the gloom and doom! Realize that some things are all about the way you view them. Who knows what’s going to “actually” happen…what matters is what’s already HAPPENING. How would feel if you knew that these “endings” were already happening all around you and WITHIN YOU?? The world is not a separate entity and its consciousness is integrated into every one of our spirits. We ARE the world, (yes kind of like the song) . In a sense, what I’m referring to are our own spiritual endings. So YES, this is an end to the current world, as we know it now. Most of these endings are within ourselves. As these endings are taking place, each shift in each individual spirit affects the whole, since everything and (everyone) is connected. So yes, this is the end of the world as we know it (HA, another song reference)
The universe IS shifting, and we are experiencing these shifts within us. Because of these shifts, we have our spirit guides ever present around us including those on the other side, our power animal spirits, and our NEW SPIRIT GUIDES which are with us to guide us with our purpose in the new energy. If you are experiencing an intense “knowing” that you have to shift careers, you are indeed communicating with your new guides who are helping you with your spiritual contracts. Heed any new thoughts on shifts in careers and follow the guidance, even if it seems completely opposite of what you are doing now. Do not worry about making it work, it’s already in place, and you have divine help. Follow your leads and keep in constant communication with your guides. YES, talk to them and ask for signs!! They WILL answer you.
November was a pretty powerful month, and you may have heard of many people close to you experiencing depression, or speaking of not wanting to be here anymore. Some people may have taken matters into their own hands, or you may have seen people having breakdowns (I consider them breakthroughs), or incidents related to overuse or abuse of drugs and alcohol. Surprisingly, you may have seen otherwise normal, capable people who you wouldn’t ever expect to feel this way calling you and telling you then are so depressed they need to get some help. You may have also heard that many people started taking medication because of the lows they have almost instantly started experiencing over the past few months. The good news is this: Those who chose to ride the waves of this past month without taking any destructive actions may well have made major shifts and may no longer be speaking of feeling this way. Strangely enough, it’s like they don’t even remember telling you of this state of mind.
This shifts are not CHOICES. Whatever needs to fall away will fall away to make room for the new shifts to happen and for you to elevate and VIBRATE to the new consciousness–which is inevitably a must higher vibration. Anytime the vibration heightens and the individual doesn’t, the shift could get very uncomfortable to where people seem to be acting “crazy” and feeling out of control, or saying they just can’t shake the feelings they are having.
This period heralds the end of fantasy and illusion, and shines the light of reality brightly and swiftly on all matters of life, especially matters of emotions and the home. Past life issues will start to rise and you may find yourself on repeat, almost as if for the past 7-10 years you have been repeating the same patterns over and over again. You are now going to be AWARE of these patterns and will feel powerless over them, and may feel that there is nothing you can do about them, this is just the way things are. And you’re right, some of you may need additional help with these shifts. There are those who may need a gentle dose of energy work, while others may need serious extraction work to the energy body.
If you have lost a part of yourself along this life path, it is now time to find it, and get back your spirit. Purify your energy body and get back the part of you which has been lost. It is imperative to do this as you will need to feel free in the areas of mind, body and spirit to excel along your path in this new energy. If you decide to get on this ride, you will experience sadness, endings, people falling away, and routines and patterns abruptly change. If you don’t FLOW with the change and go with it, you will probably not like the positions you find yourself in. The universe will SHOVE you along, you could either go with it, or stay in the old energy which will only leave you with like minded souls who have decided to stay behind. You will get uncomfortable. Don’t make it harder on yourself.
Acceptance is the answer, no matter what the conditions. If you are a fighter, stop fighting against the energy. Let things pass, and stay clear in your energy. Those who are lost will either find their way to the next level or they will stay in the old vibration. If you decide to shift up, you will find you have less or no emotion towards the things that you may have once reacted to. You may re-experience these interactions only to find out you aren’t affected and may wonder why. You have done your work. You have become whole again. You are a full circle, pure in spirit, no longer a half circle seeking externals or other half circles to complete you (and not ever feeling complete). The good news is that once you make your shift, you will not feel sad over the old life, or THE OLD WORLD. However, to get to this place, it will not be easy. The more you ride the wave, it will be easier, but there will be discomfort along the way, and possibly a huge feeling of depression, anxiety or hopelessness. Some of you may be asking yourself, “Is this it? Is this all there is”? The future may seem bleak, things may seem as if they aren’t moving forward. The key word is “SEEM”, because it’s just the illusion of the old energy surfacing. Don’t stay stuck in it.
And whatever you do, do not try to remain on both sides of the fence, trying to please everyone. If you shift to the new energy and things fall away, don’t spend your time trying to force them back into place. Sooner or later, people will walk through your door or they will not. If you are one of those people who are feeling the way I was describing above and need a push, and I feel that most light workers will, (since they can carry burdens of others and are very sensitive to the energies of all environments), you may need some help on the earth plane from a qualified spiritual teacher or guide to shift you. The more spiritual power you harness, and the more passionate your emotions, it is imperative to lay the foundation of your energy in the correct way, so it will not go against you. I would recommend extraction work for those who experiencing intense emotions and feel that things are falling away, and feel emotionally tied to people, situations or things that do not serve them but feel drawn to those things anyway.
I would recommend Shamanic Healing work by Lisa Weikel of Owl Medicine. Click here to go to Lisa’s website.
I can’t recommend this enough. It is imperative you understand your spiritual contract here as we shift to the new energy so that you know which direction to pursue. Plus it will be a wonderful to experience your whole spirit, free and clear of old energy! Welcome to the New World

September Inspirational & Mini Messages From Medium Marisa Liza Pell
Are you feeling frustrated yet? Has time slowed down a little? You are not alone! If you feel a little in ‘limbo’ in all areas of life, you are feeling the current energy. It’s ok to feel a little down, just know it will pass. You may be feeling a bit tired, under the weather or just plain uninspired! Try not to push or force yourself, as forward motion could make you feel like you’re hitting a wall these days. It’s best to accept that you will be in this space for a little while longer.
So, what do you do about it right? I would love to tell you you will be experiencing wonderful energy coming in, and you MAY, but the moments may be fleeting, and you may find yourself dragging to get things done, or on the other hand, YOU MAY HAVE NOTHING TO DO lol! When we are dealing with this type of energy, rocking the boat will only make you feel even more out of kilter. You are in this energy now, best thing to do is be there. The last week of September, (not too far away!!) should be more forward moving, so make a good meal, watch a movie, and let yourself be ok with feeling not so hot. Don’t be upset with yourself if you just “can’t shake it”. Sometimes the energies are a bit uncomfortable, and that’s where they are now. Expecting big changes, or trying to force them at this time will just end up making you frustrated.
Be aware of your physical body at this time. Too much overindulgence in one area can prove to be (how can I say it without being too forward)…well let’s just say it could prove to be “not so good”. Be aware of run in’s with the law, watch your driving, and be aware of how YOU ARE FEELING. Rest and take care of yourself if need be. You will have enough time later in the fall, particularly late October moving into the beginning and middle of November. You WILL be wanting to slow down! So take the time to relax and best to LET IT GO. Hmmm, a very strong message indeed for today’s thoughts.
LET IT GO. Yes, let it go!! Whatever you have been holding on to lately, OR maybe even for years, or your life, LET IT GO. From this point on, it’s best to stop trying to continue any cycle which causes you pain and/or discomfort. Life is a two way street, and if there are people in it that don’t reciprocate or aren’t aware of your happiness, there is no need to continue to be worried or anxious about changing the dynamics of these situations. You are way beyond that. As most of my readers are women, and of course this applies to the men too, you may find that overgiving is part of what you do. YOU ENJOY GIVING. But who is giving back? You are at a point energetically where it isn’t worth it to continue the imbalance of certain structures.
Now this could be with ANY relationship, even with your job. And if not, if could be WITH YOU AND YOU ALONE. You may be carrying your past with you and even may use it as an excuse to continue keeping yourself in your current energy. The fact is that is IS serving you in some way or you wouldn’t be doing it. But are you happy?? And also, what is the point of trying to control your situation. You will lose, and more importantly you will waste time. Take a look at where you are now. Have you progressed in the past five years? Do you have that new job, a happy partnership, do you feel at peace, or is it all just in your head?
Take these next few weeks to REALLY think. Where are you going? What are you doing? And how will you get there? If you are not being productive then it’s really on you. You alone are responsible for your happiness! We are under the impression that OTHER PEOPLE, PLACES AND THINGS will MAKE us happy. If only we had something, we would be happy. Try this concept out. GO GET WHAT YOU THINK WILL MAKE YOU HAPPY, and see if it lasts! If you strike gold let me know, we will all want to find out your secret If not, know that true happiness comes from fulfilling your creative purpose! Find that!

All my Best,
MINI MESSAGES FOR SEPTEMBER 2012
Lillian is still coming through from the other side! Apparently there was a message for someone last month that didn’t get passed on!! Please know that Lillian is doing well, and wants to acknowledge a wedding coming up, and also a strand of pearls. Pearls are very significant. She is also mentioning an Andrew either living or passed that is very special to her.
A woman named ‘DOT’ is coming through from the other side. She is a very determined WOMAN and is saying that she is INSISTANT on getting a message through today. She is reprimanding a woman in the living saying, “Get off your A%^!!” This is very much her personality. You didn’t want to mess with her. She is saying that you are being very lazy and on the P-I-T-Y pot lately. So stop stuffing yourself with snack food and vanilla ice cream, and get moving. She is saying also that you have been really hard on yourself, and looking at yourself in the mirror and wanting to lose weight. You are saying some really not so nice things about yourself!! She is saying you are complaining but doing NOTHING about it!! So stop the talk, and get out there lady!! And stop procrastinating on all that paperwork that needs to be finished.
A man named Joe from the other side is coming through. He used to roll his own tobacco, and I smell it. He does not like to be called anything but JOE, not Joseph or Joey and for some reason he is telling me this isn’t even his REAL name. This could have been his middle name. There is a Harry or Harold connection to him, or perhaps this was his real name? He is with an older woman, possibly his wife, who is wearing green scrubbing gloves!! She loved to clean, and definitely had those “dish pan hands” lol. Joe passed a while ago, maybe over 10-15 years ago. He is asking you to look into your family history, and your ancestry, very important, as there is a lot to learn. AND, check your ankle. Don’t workout too hard if it’s hurting!! Also, your stomach is very irritated right now, try to be very careful with hard liquor, or any sort of over the counter things for headaches.
Mike in the living, your grandfather is here, and he’s saying you need to continue with your plan to move forward with your own business, or take over a family business that involves manual labor. I hear the name “Gertie, Gert, or Gertrude” coming in as well. You are really on the verge of something very prosperous for yourself, and right now you are thinking of NOT MOVING FORWARD. Please don’t make me kick you in the butt, Mike!! You are a little discouraged right now, and don’t want to take a big risk with your finances, but do you really want to keep living paycheck to paycheck with no advancement and nothing for your future. I know you feel a little burned out, but do not be discouraged. Take this step! It may take a little while to get things going, but your future will be set! You are on to big things If you are reading this, and you are not MIKE, but you know who this is for, please give him the message!
Hope you all have a wonderful week and Happy Fall!
All My Best,
Now onto going into September, you should start to organize and prioritize your home, office and activities. There are things that are now holding you back and you must decide what is important and what needs to go. This is in the form of clutter, papers, and YES other people!! You must clear out for the new to come in, because the seeds you planted this summer will begin to bring new opportunities in the fall.
If you are not organized or prepared, you could find yourself running around aimlessly trying to get things done at the last minute, and that will NOT be comfortable. So save yourself some stress and get moving on organization NOW. Some of you may experience rapid shifts this September going into mid October. This may involve total career transitions, a change in residence or a new long standing relationship. In any event, these changes are for the better, so TAKE THE PLUNGE and just do it!! If you are someone who is usually in a comfort zone and change really freaks you out, I hate to say it but you will miss the boat. Everything is in alignment now to move forward, so take this as your window of opportunity into new and exciting areas.
This may also be a good time to have a session done to see what your path holds, whether it is an intuitive session, or connecting with your spirit guides! Or it could just be following your own inner guidance. If you are reading this, and things are making a LOT of sense, then you may not need any guidance at all….YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO. So just do it
Now on to the Mini Messages,
All my Best,
Sarah is coming through from the other side, she says she has her hair up in a bun and didn’t like the “old lady” hairstyle. She is mentioning to her daughter here in the living to STOP WORRYING, everything is going to be ok. She is also showing me a bicycle. Perhaps this means that this activity is essential to getting out of your head. Someone may have to check their blood sugar regularly, there is a lot of stress near someone in the immediate family. The name of Tom is also connected to Sarah, living or passed. Once this person relaxes, their sugar levels should return to normal. She is also showing me a lake and a hammock.
Cindy in the living, both of your grandparents are coming through from the other side speaking of a second marriage and/or engagement in the family and they are very happy about that. I also see a home needing a new roof, and someone juicing for optimal health. It could be that you are already in the holistic field or may be going into this field in the upcoming two to three years. There is also a Stan or Stanley connection that those are the other side are mentioning. But the first message of CONGRATULATIONS seems to be the primary one!
Susan, get out of your head, it’s a BAD NEIGHBORHOOD in there!!
Mark in the living, your father is coming through from the other side saying you’ve been through literal “hell” over the past two years! He is glad you have seen it through and says it’s only “a bump in the road”. I see pavement, so perhaps you are getting a driveway redone. Your father is very proud of you and offered support on the other side during this difficult time. I see the Star of David next to him, so either he has a Jewish friend on the other side with him, or he has Jewish roots and/or ancestry. He wants to mention the watch you have of his, and says, “You better water those plants!” I’m assuming you don’t have a green thumb! He really wants to let you know he is there and that there are smoother roads ahead.
Lily or Lillian, not sure if this is living or passed, but she wants to mention a new baby that has just arrived or is arriving. They are very happy on the other side about this new addition. They are mentioning that this new mom is either very young or was not considered “ready” by the family to have this new child, but she says that this is incorrect! This child will bring great healing to both this young mother and especially to the grandparents here! There is a young man in spirt who passed that is very missed by the family, and he is also in agreement! Although he says that this young mom does need to go back to school, and that’s a MUST and he WILL help with that!!
Hope you all have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!
All My Best,
Ok, so you may be saying to yourself, WHEN are things going to move forward for me?? Well, the good news is that THEY ARE. You just aren’t fully aware of it yet. The seeds you have planted over the past 2 years will begin to sprout and are actually flowering right now. From the third week of August through the first week of September, there could be some strong movements forward. This is a time to **prepare**. Get your yellow lined pad out, and write lists of what needs to be done. You’ll be surprised that if you are accountable to yourself, or even a friend/family member, you will be 75% more productive and will be surprised by how much you will get done!
You may be feeling a “slow down” period right now, where things are VERY QUIET. People aren’t in talking moods, or they are just “in a mood” … where you don’t want to be around them anyway LOL. You may be feeling a bit lonely because people aren’t calling or communicating as much as you would like. There is a huge internal shift going on right now, and a lot of people are becoming reflective on where their life is headed, and are thinking about huge changes, both on this level and on a spiritual level . And these changes MUST be taken. You will see by October, either with yourself or those close to you, that these are THE months of BIG SHIFTS. You will see people making monumental changes, whether it be career, relationship or otherwise. There will also be BIG COMMITTMENTS. So whatever may have held you back in the past two years…no time to fret because it’s really a jumping forward point right now! You may be thinking: “Well, not much is happening!!” Believe me, it is. And you need to prepare!
There may be a tendency now to overthink and get caught up in the mental rumination process. Because of this, you may procrastinate on the practical areas of life you need to take care of . I’ll say it again, make lists!! If you still aren’t feeling motivated, just move the body forward and the mind will follow, even if you are a little reluctant to do it This is a great time to seek out help from good friends and family, and let them know your goals and plans. Speaking to people who are in your corner can help maximize the energy to manifest your goals!
This is also a great time to learn a new skill or go back to a talent you were good at and may have put on the back burner because you were “too busy”. Clutter in all areas of life needs to go now!! You need the space and energy for connection to your higher consciousness to channel your own insights and messages for personal direction.
Be brave at this point, and know that anything you move forward on now will be successful. We are coming into a Mercury Retrograde period at the end of the week, and this will continue for three weeks. So, you will feel a little slow, especially over the next few days. It’s a good time to finish projects you have started, and a good time to reconnect with friends and loved ones. Although this period comes with delays, enjoy the calmer energy and get things done!!! You will be happy you did
NOW ONTO THE MINI MESSAGES
Sarah: This is someone on the other side. She is telling me she is wearing her hair back in a “bun” and that there are only a few strands of gray in it. She is also laughing about the fact that she used to cook in LARD! I am getting the name Mark, so this could be someone living that she is mentioning. She wants him to be careful of his back, and lifting large items. There have been issues in the past with work, and she doesn’t want this to re-surface. She is mentioning an antique piece of jewelry which is in the family but is not being taken care of. She’s a little upset about that! She is saying that her father is with her and met her on the other side, and someone has a pair of his black leather shoes here. This woman is tough, don’t mess with her!! She is shaking her finger at you, just like she did when she was here!
Mike: This message is from your father on the other side. He is mentioning nose bleeding. I’m not sure if this is with him or with you, and something about working in a factory. He also wants you to know that the annoying small dog (the Dashshund ??) is with him on the other side and is still barking all the time!! He wants you to look at your check book and make sure your checking account is in balance. He is mentioning a Matt, and a Kelly. Someone’s BIG birthday is coming up and he is saying Happy Birthday. The 30th of a month is significant. He wants you think about going back to thinking about going or finishing “trade school” and he is mentioning trucks or driving them.
Jude/Judy: It’s time to really get your physical body back in shape. Your circulation is continuing to be slow and don’t want water retention. Take care of what you are eating, your stomach is looking like it’s bothering you. It’s time for a massage and a chiropractic adjustment. There is a Virginia connection, whether that be the state or the name “Ginny”. I am also picking up a Richard and a Roger. Eat Kale !!???
Ed: There is man here from the other side that was very close to you in life. I don’t feel he was your natural father, but he raised you or you considered him like a father. He is saying that you are very talented and creative and you haven’t been doing any of it. You keep wondering why you are not feeling joyous. It’s because you need to start doing what you love again, plain and simple!!
Jason/Jay: Oh man. Stop the thinking!! You are making yourself insane, and are not seeing the MULTIPLE opportunities in front of you. Like a detailed map going in all directions, your mind energy is doing the same thing. Pick THREE projects and FOCUS on them. You need to focus on your career right now, and also networking with the RIGHT people, not those who have proven to not follow through in the past. You have a tendency to believe what people say. People from the past in regards to work will be reconnecting with you in “2″ timeframe, (within the next 2 days, 2 weeks or 2 months). I am going to say 2 weeks would be most accurate. They will propose projects to you, or ask you to re-work or re-do a previous project with promises for the future. DO NOT BUY IT. I see a push forward and then communication stopping for no reason once again (just like it did twice before). Beware of male partners in business, especially if they’re brothers with a family backing. Focus, focus!!! And run, or walk outside. Get your head clear.
Clara: It’s that time to think about a FULL RESTRUCTURE of all business! You have been wanting a change or an “out” for a while and now is the time to put everything into place and start planning. I’m getting a Florida connection, and I believe this is your grandmother on the other side coming through. She may have had trouble speaking toward the later years in life. Someone is smoking around you, STOP!! Re-look at a lease and review the terms carefully. This could also be another document relating to real estate, perhaps commercial. Make sure you hire those with an expertise in the areas that you would like to make changes, just so you are FULLY AWARE of the finer points. You asked for a sign, and THIS IS IT!!
Hope you all have a great July!!
All my best
June Inspirational Message From Medium Marisa Liza Pell
So…you thought that the wave hit you hard last month huh? Yeah, I know it’s been a HUGE shift in energy. Some of you may have slipped into a state of depression over the past few weeks or have just been plain tired. Some of you may have been really angry!! Know that you’re not alone. A lot of people who are very sensitive are experiences major shifts and if you have been going with the flow of your highest vibration, you should have experienced some lifting of it at the end of last week going into this week.
If you are someone who is interested in going into the intuitive or metaphysical field, you may find a strong push to do so now. You may want to get involved in classes or start your own business. Those in the healing fields may find that NOW is a good time to get your attunements and/or to clear your residual energy that has been like a gray cloud hanging over you.
Now, for the good stuff! You are moving at a high rate vibrationally and you could feel like you are going at light speed. You know there are so many hours in a day, and it’s hard to get it all done! Try not to get yourself in a tizzy. When you are leading with your higher forms of mental energy, or what some of us call “tuning in”, sometimes that mental energy could get a bit imbalanced and could manifest in restless energy or obsessive thinking. Like a hyper puppy needs to release energy, you may need to get in physical mode by working out to bring everything into balance. And you may need a faster paced activity to do so. Slowing your energy down may not be best for this sort of balance.
Business ideas, dreams and passions could be at the forefront of your mind now. The Magician card in the tarot comes to mind when thinking about the current place you could be in. Right now, your manifestation energy is very high, so make sure you are putting out there whatever you would like to see come in! And make sure it’s of your highest vibration and very positive. MAKE HIGH GOALS A PRIORITY. If you have spent a long time building your foundation, now is the time to make the leap and SPRING onto the scene. The universe will definitely meet you halfway, provided you take the actions necessary to go forth!! And you should!! Because you have planted your seeds and now is the time to show the world what you’re made of! Star quality is the energy of the week!!
If you feel you are held back, it’s because of your OWN STUBBORN QUALITIES!! Yes, you are only you are the one keeping yourself from shining. What is it you always wanted to do? Do you have a creative project you would like to get out into the world? Begin it now!! Or if you had it on the shelf, get it finished! And if it is finished, well get it out there!! Funny thing is, if you’re normally a shy person and/or you think too much, the current energy will lift that and you will feel you could accomplish anything so GO WITH IT!!
Now onto the MINI MESSAGES:
Steve/Stephan: You have a foot problem or a problem that has been bothering you for a long time. Get it looked at!! You are not feeling great because your career path is boring you. Take a look at the sciences. I think you would do well taking some classes, and I see you in a lab coat
Marcella/Marcy: Someone from the other side is coming in congratulating someone on a baby AND a graduation!! I see a string a pearls passed down to a grandchild. The name Roger/Raj or last name Rogers is coming in. He is mentioning something about someone’s eyes and clearer vision. If you have to get new glasses, they want you to get the more “modern” look!
Tony/Anthony: Man you are a mess! It’s time to get your back and hip checked and stop thinking it will just go away. There are STRONG intuitive abilities in your family, so make sure you are using them, and refining them. YOU could work in this field and you tend to give great advice! You also need new carpets, there are too many stains. Your grandmother is coming through speaking broken English and yelling at you. She says, “You can cook! Stop being lazy and stop eating all that bread…and those greasy subs!” And clean your bathroom drain…there’s hair clogging it!
Susan: Wow, they are so proud of you on the other side. There is a joke about an “Ezmerelda”, and you used to love dressing up and being dramatic as a kid! They are congratulating the one who is graduating and saying, “Don’t let them get ahead of themselves!! Stay humble! And YOU my dear are going back to the gym again! They hear those thoughts and they are trying to inspire you! What is with the strange noodle dish or casserole you are attempting to make. Be careful not to burn it…AGAIN. There is a Joe and Louis or Louise connection, and tell Joseph to be mindful of his lower back, and put those damn tools on a lower shelf!! All in all, they are so proud of you!!
Well, that’s all I have today! I hope you all have a great week!
