What is my favourite type of work to do for the Spirit World?  While I love helping in any way, nothing makes me more excited than when a client wants to learn to connect with their Guides.  To me, this is very much the difference – as Jesus said – between teaching a man to fish and simply giving him a fish.  Providing a reading is lovely but how much more empowered are clients when they can directly get their own answers, and know they can do so for the rest of their lives?

Let me shed light on some common misconceptions here.

Q. Can anyone learn to connect with their Guides? Don’t I have to be born with some special gift, like seeing Spirit as a child?

A. Absolutely, ANYONE can learn to communicate with their Guides. In fact, did you know that your Guides have already given you information and direction many times during your life? You just thought it was your own thoughts or gut instinct.

Q. Is it hard to learn? Won’t it take a lifetime of effort to learn to do this?

A. If you regularly practice understanding your Guides (the little homework exercises I will give you at each session), you can be connecting within weeks. Of course, the more you practice, the more Spirit ‘unfolds’ your abilities and the more you begin to trust what you are receiving.

Q. I am hesitant to connect with the unseen world. Is it safe?

A. Yes, connecting with your Pure Light Guides is always safe. It’s just like any relationship you have on the Earth plane with those you trust and love.

Q. Why would I want to communicate with my Guides?

A. Ah, now here is the best question! Think of your Guides as the best friends you could ever have. These ‘friends’ have only your highest and best in mind, love you unconditionally, never lose patience and never judge you – how many people on the Earth plane can you say that about?  In addition, They know your goals for this life and so keep you on track, working tirelessly to bring you the right opportunities at the right time.  They are the wisest, smartest, most loving and most accomplished business/life/spiritual partners you could ever hope for!  As you build this special partnership with your Guides, the affection and support that radiates from Them is palpable.

Q. I don’t want to answer to anyone or be told what to do. Won’t that be the case?

A. No. Your Guides are just that – your Guides, not ‘your Lives’ – as John Edward says. They do not seek to live your life for you, will never demand anything of you, nor do They seek blind followers.  Their role is to help clear your vision, provide information and direction, and empower you to create the life your soul planned.  The relationship between you and your Guides should be an equal partnership; it has nothing to do with being in servitude.

When I first learned about my Guides it was the most incredible revelation.  I wanted to run up to every person I knew and say ‘Did you know there is a whole unseen world out there and it is real!?  Do you realize that you are never alone, especially in those darkest moments when it most feels that way?  Do you understand you are supported and watched over every moment of every day, and nothing in life is random and chaotic as it appears to be?’ But most people aren’t ready for this truth.

If you are here and still reading this blog then you already understand that there is much more to life than meets the eye.  I would be thrilled and honored to introduce you to your Guides, and help you with the most important relationship you will ever forge.


We told you last time we spoke with you, that we had more to tell you about what was happening on your planet.  We feel that now is the time to tell you the real story of your existence at this point in time.  We do not wish to frighten you but there are things you must know and be aware of if you are to be fully armed in the battle that is ahead of you.

The first thing you must know is that you are not alone on your planet.  This is a good thing and a not-so-good thing.  There are many species from other planets visiting your world. Some of them have come to assist mankind while others are feeding off them, energetically speaking.  Let us speak of the latter kind first.

The Greys are beings that have come to planet Earth to appease those who have sent them but their mission has changed while here.  They came on a peaceful mission to be observers mostly but have grown far too attached to your planet and wish to make it their own. But they are the least of your problems.


There is another race that has come here for the purpose of feeding off the human race on an emotional level.  You feed them constantly with your violent tendencies and emotions of a lower vibration.  They are here to keep the human species in a state of immaturity rather than to have mankind evolve to a higher vibrational level.  They feed your political system to encourage chaos and ill will and in order to gain high levels within government and the establishment.  Do not be deceived by what you see on TV; much of it is lies put forth by these beings who are furthering their own ends.

Now we give you the hopeful news.  They will not be allowed to succeed.  There are many other species in line with mankind to see that that does not happen.  They are elevating the mass consciousness in various ways in order to turn the tide to greater awareness and higher vibrational emotions.

What can you do you may ask?  It is simple.  Encourage others to expand their awareness of who they are and why they have chosen to be on planet Earth at this time.  Many of you are light-workers and planned to be part of this revolution, even if you cannot remember that at the present time.  How you shift mass consciousness is up to you.  It can be done simply by continuing to hold thoughts of love and joy, and making this your natural state.  If you want to do more, speak with others about the need for mankind to evolve and spread the word. If you are so inclined in your talents, work with others to show them the way to spiritual truths and greater inner peace.  There are all levels of assistance to be offered and all will make a difference in the long run.

Many of you have come to us [Spirit Guides] wanting to know about soulmates. We would like to share with you some principles around finding your soulmate and what this really means for your soul development.

Before you incarnate there is a master plan set for the key points in your Earthly existence. By key points what we are referring are the major directions your life will take, including who you have chosen to share your spiritual journey as your life partner. The reason so many of you are taken by surprise regarding who this person is is because frequently it must be this way. Would you really want to know, from the moment you sunset-couplemet the individual, that this was to be your life-long partner? There are many times that this would not work well, including if the other person does not yet recognize who you are. How heart-breaking to love another person who does yet know that they love you, on a soul level? This is why the path to uniting these two individuals cannot be hurried; it must run its course. First there is a dawning that there is something about the person that draws you in, that captures your attention. You want to know more about who they are and yet you may still not perceive that it is anything more than a passing interest. Getting to know one another – without a label being placed on it – is the best way that such a relationship can unfold.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many other factors that influence whether it is the right time for these souls to come together. The most important of these is the level of attainment reached by each party, speaking solely in spiritual terms. It must be true that each individual has come to recognize certain truths about who they are and who they are not, and to have made peace with what it is they want out of life. This happens less frequently than you realize. Most times the people who come together are still too early on in their spiritual journey to be molding their lives to that of another individual. If you are both undergoing a significant personal transformation, now is not the time to worry about how you fit with another human being, or else how can you be truly free to become who you are becoming? This is the catch 22 of the situation. Instead, we ask you to take a step back and decide where your priorities lie. Is it with another person and making them happy, or can you put yourself first and honour the person you are becoming? Many of you are not strong enough, in the early stages of the relationship, to withstand the scrutiny and judgement of others if you have not had time yet to solidify what you believe and know to be true. So instead of continuing the transformation to become that butterfly, you instead stunt your growth by bending your will to that of another person. We do not wish to see this happen, as it benefits no one.

Another principle you should be aware of, is that not everyone will find their soulmate in this lifetime. This could be the case for a few reasons. One is that, in making that compromise in who you will live out your life with, you have foregone the opportunity to meet your true soulmate. Many make this mistake out of the fear of being alone. The other common reason soulmates do not find each other involves the need to take an opportunity as it arises; one that will take you to where your soulmate waits for you. This could be a move to another country or city but you are afraid to leave behind that which is familiar. We try to urge you to take these steps when needed, to point you on the path you had already decided long ago. This is why, if you feel strongly about a situation, even if you do not know why you feel as you do, you should honour the intuition you are receiving. It could be the difference between finding your path, and missing the boat, at least for the foreseeable future.

Finally, even if soulmates do not find each other in the time and way that they had first planned, it does not mean that circumstances cannot change to enable them to unite later in life. We love to see two souls come together, who have struggled through so much to find one another. It is a time for celebration in the Spirit World.

We hope this blog has been helpful to you.

Being a spiritual leader or light-worker can imply a number of things.  It can mean that you wish to use the gifts you have discovered and which are being developed within yourself towards a spiritual career.  Or it can simply mean that, trusting the spiritual path you are on, you use your understanding informally in your day-to-day life to be a light for others.

I would like to share with you the teachings from the Spirit Guides of one of my clients, taken from a reading I recently did on finding his spiritual career path.  Just a week before this reading, I was commenting on how elusive the words are to describe how one becomes more spiritual.  As Spirit often does, They soon found the means to answer my question. Here is the eloquent wisdom They shared:

“The key to becoming a spiritual leader is to grow the trust within yourself, meaning that you have a solid connection to the Spirit World and can trust it fully and at all times.  The main focus becomes not on what your mind is telling you or what society thinks is right; the only compass that guides you is your bridge to the Spirit side of life and this could smaller-bigstock-Truly-Believe-86704874relate to your guides, your higher self, angelic beings or The Great Spirit.  It is not an easy path to follow, at least in the beginning when you are still learning how things work.  Putting yourself in the hands of another is not something that comes easily to you humans.  The trust is built little by little until one day you recognize that you are fully being guided by Spirit in all you do.

Let us talk about the ego at this juncture.  As you progress along the spiritual path there is a shedding of the old you – the old ways of thinking and being.  This is exactly as it should be.  Nothing worth retaining is lost in the process.  What is lost is the part of you that rebels against The Great Spirit and wants to go your own way without a regard for the bigger picture of life.  As the ego is shed the primary focus becomes a drive to bring more light and love to the world and to those you encounter.  Your goals and The Great Spirit’s become one and the same.  And yet in all of this you retain your individuality, that special spark that makes you who you are – unique yet one of the whole.

As your connection with Spirit solidifies what you will notice is a gradual falling away from unhelpful thoughts because the ego is receding and the Divine in you is growing.  It is hard to see day by day but those around you begin to notice a difference in how you see the world.  If you, yourself, take a moment to think back to earlier times you will recognize just how far you have come.  Even now if you do this you will see the difference.  Is not your wish to bring light into the world even now?  If your answer is Yes, and we know that it is, you can be assured that you are already well on your path to attainment.  It is the practical side in you that is really asking ‘From where does my next paycheque come?’  This is an entirely different matter.  Let us speak to that now.

We are not able to materialize for you a career until we know that what it is you are truly seeking has been solidified in your own mind and is in alignment with The Great Spirit.  We need to speak to that last part.  It is not The Great Spirit’s intention that you should be given certain tasks to complete or directives to follow.  This is not the way of the Divine.  However, it needs to be true that what you choose to do fits within the bigger plan which is afoot to bring healing and rebirth to the human species.  This is why a partnership with your spirit guides is the best path forward.  We, by extension, are your gateway to the Divine.  We will guide you in what you seek so that it aligns perfectly within the greater plan.  The freedom which is available to you is limitless but you cannot set your own course to get there.  We are the ones who decide on the details in order to bring the opportunities to you.  You set the ‘what’ and we take care of the ‘when and where’.  But if you are not hearing us then how can we guide you?”

I have to say that I never liked that Whitney Houston song.  I know others enjoy it but to me it didn’t resonate.  In fact, I can remember years ago being in a meditation group where the facilitator led us through a visualization to meet our self as a young child.  I was immediately resistant to the idea, and remember in my mind adamantly refusing to take part.  That was a real revelation to me – why did I have such a strong negative reaction to myself?  I didn’t think of myself as someone with self-love issues, though like most people I could definitely make a list of things I didn’t like about Sandra.

Spirit has taught me a lot on this journey, and sometimes I don’t even know how They have done it and how I managed to get to where I am now.  I know that as I pursued the spiritual path something began to shift inside me.  It was very gradual which makes it hard to describe for another person.  But I will lay it out as best I can.

At this point I need to describe another meditation-related example.  In a different meditation circle I later attended we learned to close our eyes and visualize the spiritual candle-2038736-pixabaylight within us.  When I did this exercise the first time, in my mind’s eye I saw the tiniest candle flame flickering.  As the months went on and my spiritual unfoldment continued, the light I clairvoyantly saw got larger and larger.  Now, years later when I engage in this exercise, what I see within is akin to a supernova – the radiance that extends from me is virtually limitless!  A pretty big change, huh?  Maybe you are asking ‘Did the change in that clairvoyant image actually reflect a change in Sandra?’  It most certainly did!

Some part of the change came from a growing understanding that it was okay to be me, whoever ‘me’ was (which I am still learning).  Another part came from being shown by Spirit how much I could and already was helping others, whether informally though my guidance to friends and colleagues, or formally in client sessions.  Either way, I was using the information I was getting from Spirit to assist others which fed my passion.  Talk about a self-esteem booster!  Thirdly, I realized that if I was experiencing strong emotions in a situation it was because I was justifiable reacting to ‘a wrong’ (that is, I wasn’t just being a baby).  Having My Guides confirm this and support me in these experiences was completely empowering and a true eye-opener.

So in a nutshell what I have learned from the Spirit World is that:

  • It’s okay…more than thatSpirit wants you and asks you – to take care of yourself first before extending yourself to others. It’s like the oxygen masks that drop down in an airplane if the cabin depressurizes. Put your mask on before you try to help another. Translation: if you need to take care of yourself, do so, and don’t feel guilty in saying No to someone. In the end you are helping them by keeping yourself strong to be available to them when the time is right.
  • You must learn to find and live your own truth, despite the values and opinions of friends, family and society. This is the great journey – to become who you truly are and express it with joy and without apology.
  • You are powerful and important – to yourself, to the Spirit World and to the God of your own understanding. You have abilities, interests, and experiences that are exclusively you which you are uniquely poised to offer the world.  Do you know what they are?  If not, don’t you want to discover them?

If you meditate (and I hope you do) I encourage you to use the candle flame visualization and watch as your spiritual light grows.

And how do I feel about that Whitney Houston song now?  Well, I can say that I finally ‘get it’ and I couldn’t agree more!

This is a blog inspired by My Guides.  I need to be clear on that.  They are not my words for I have no knowledge of future events all on my own.  It is a greater wisdom that comes forth.

These are exciting times which lay ahead of us and yet there is much trepidation as well.  World events have never been as chaotic as they are at the present time.  Many have asked the Spirit World if these are the end times that many before have spoken of.  We come to you to say that nothing could be further from the truth.  There are no ‘end times’.  This is because there is no end to Spirit and you are Spirit.  Let us tell you truly what these times are about.

earth-11009_1280There is a mass awakening happening on planet Earth.  Those who are spiritually inclined have a growing awareness of this but others are totally oblivious and will remain so until their awakening comes.  What is a mass awakening, you may ask?  For those of you who have opened yourselves up to Spirit we seek to have a greater influence in your lives.  To do this, we are bringing about changes within your genetic makeup that allow us to further attune ourselves to your vibration.  This can have some unwanted side-effects that you should be aware of.  You may find yourself prone to negative mood swings or have aches and pains in your body that come and go.  If you are highly attuned you will be able to separate times when this is us, and times when you are simply feeling unwell.  Do not be too concerned about these occurrences as they will not last and they are ultimately for your highest and best.

What is this new attunement about, may be your next question?  This is a more complicated one to explain.  First off you should know that there are unseen factions at war within your world.  We will not elaborate here on that, only to say that never has there been a time such as this when light-workers have been called upon to play that role which they came here to play.  You have chosen to incarnate at this time for a reason.  That reason is being called forth now – YOU are being called forth now.  Each of you has within you a soul purpose that is in the process of being activated by the Spirit realm and the energies that are alive and well on planet Earth.  This is why so many of you have been questioning your purpose as of late.  Also, you may have noticed a growing inclination to sleep more, to exercise more, to change your dietary habits, to do things you would not normally feel motivated or urged to do.  This is The Great Awakening; this is the time for all on your planet to listen to that little voice from inside themselves and begin to follow the path that it leads them on.  There is no time like the present; there is much work to be done.  Let us achieve this work together; let us work with you.  All that we ask is that you keep an open mind, both regarding your soul purpose as well as what is possible with Spirit, and that you open yourselves further and further to our influences.  Grow your intuition.  Grow your link with Spirit.  Stay attuned to our messages.  This is all we ask at this juncture.  We will speak again soon.

Many of you probably think of a medium as someone like me – that person you go to to hear from Your Guides or your deceased loved ones.  This is certainly the most common interpretation.  But what if I told you that you, too, are a medium?  Would that surprise you?

Mediumship is so much more than paying a person to give you messages.  Mediumship is truly about your connection to the Spirit World.  What connection you say?  “I don’t know how to communicate with Spirit!  That is just for people with ‘the gift’.”  But nothing could be further from the truth.  You are ALL connected to Spirit, every day of your lives.  You just haven’t learned how to perceive it…how to truly work with it…work with us.

We influence you on a regular basis, though you may not be aware of it.  How do we do this?  Simple.  By merging our Spirit with yours, to suggest certain courses of action to you as an alternative to consider – one we know will benefit you if you follow our direction.  We do not seek to control you – that is the furthest thing from our minds.  Rather, we remember what it is you planned for yourself when you entered this life.  You, on the other hand, do not.  So our role is only to point the way to you, with little signs and inspirations that if you follow them, will help keep you on the path you have chosen.

What are these little signs you may ask?  They are many and varied.  We may send someone to you to deliver the information you need to hear.  We may attract into your life the people who can help you with your next step.  We may send a book or a teacher or a coach your way.  We may send you inspirations through your dreams.  There are so many ways that we can reach out to you through those you come in contact with.  Have you not had the experience of hearing just what you needed to hear from someone, at exactly the right time?  We made that happen, on your behalf.  We work tirelessly for your benefit every day and all the time, even when you do not see yet what it is we are creating for you.

The reverse is also the case.  Do you know that you are an ambassador for the Spirit World?  It is true.  Just as easily as we influence you to take a course of action, we can also put our thoughts and our words in your mind to assist another.  We do this all the time as well.  We use your love, your compassion, your knowledge of the other person and what they are facing in order to deliver to them the message they need to hear at the time.  They are your words but they are also ours.  We become one in our desire to assist that individual and make a difference in their life.

Does this excite you?  Do you realize how important you are to us?  …to the big picture of the world that is unfolding around you?  We could not do it without you.  You are integral to the plan.  You are important to us, and we seek to know you better and work more fully through you.  All we need is your permission.  All we want is for you to remain open to our influence, open to being a force to assist others and sharing your light and love.  We will do the rest.

With love,
Your Spirit Team
