Help and Celebration from
Blessings to you this day of
The March sky is bright blue, with only a
few clouds here and there. Spring can be inhaled in the fresh morning
air - I love it - the shift from one season to another - I always strive
to experience completely the shift from winter to spring - I find it
Change of the season is magical...
The word change rolls easy enough from
the tongue - change... Some times change can feel good - even great,
other times the thought of it engulfs us in fear.
Fred and I have been talking about
remodeling the kitchen for years... Of course remodeling requires
change - and change requires decisions - and in this case
consensus between two people - Fred and me. How hard can that be?
Deep within I knew that involving the
house in a TLC project (Tender Loving Care) would be of huge benefit for
all concerned - including the house. So after weeks of talking colors
and processes, we finally purchased paint for the walls and
Of course painting the walls and cabinets
required removing things and creating a somewhat organized chaos. This
said, the goal was to complete the painting in one weekend. The
completed effort of painting the walls and cabinets was so awesome (I'm
thrilled) Fred decided we should replace the countertops too. Well...
if the countertops were to be replaced, then I requested an island off
the end of the counter with bar stools to replace the kitchen nook. Fred
felt if an island were installed, then it would be best to include new
cabinets under it to utilize the space in the best way. But, if
cabinets were under the island, then the floor vent would be in the
way... Are you seeing more work here?
We made a decision - together - and it
wasn't nearly as challenging as deciding to paint the cabinets and
walls. It was decided to use upper cabinets under the island to
maintain the space for stools and proper movement, so Fred had to build
the base for them, hence, the garage was transformed into a working
In the mean time the vent in the floor
had to be moved. When Fred went to move it, it didn't want to cooperate
- at least that is what it sounded like... (Ever been on the
receiving end of that kind of sound?) so I asked for angelic
help. Next thing I knew I heard the sounds of mission accomplished. I
asked Fred if he asked for help, he said no. I told him I did. He
thanked me and I heard my dad, Big Jim, say, "You're welcome." So I
reminded Fred to thank the helper... He did.
It was about this time that Majik began
to really enjoy himself. He was playing and kept wanting to go out - in
and out - in and out. Then I realized he was wanting to go out so much
because "they - Big Jim and friends" were going through the dining room
door and he couldn't - I had to open it for Majik's physical body. I got
my camera and took pictures.
We had guests - and lots of them!

There was an angelic party going on in
the garage with Fred! Helpers of support were all over the place. At
first I wondered about the dust causing the orbs, but the next morning I
went into the garage and blew dust around and took pictures - no orbs.
Then I sat with the pictures and asked what was going on...
The energy from the orbs was...
electric! Excitement and joy! There was great celebration of home
improvement - showing the house our commitment to living here and truly
embracing it as our sanctuary. Plus the experience Fred and I were
receiving of producing the project together. The act of creating
something beautiful that we would love and enjoy together, was indeed,
cause for celebration! Not to mention great entertainment for Big Jim
and other deceased family members. From where they are they see the ins
and outs of all projects and do what they can to help us to reach
completion. It is in times of distracted concentration that they can
speak to us and enhance our creativity.

I wandered throughout the house taking
pictures and captured many more orbs. Alvin, Big Jim's skunk, had
joined us - I captured his "zero orb" in Majik's bed waiting for him to
come back and play!
The countertop, island and new cabinets
are installed and the organized chaos has been reorganized back into the
cabinets - there is even running water from the faucet!
Our remodel project was a definite form
of "change." Change can be intimidating, scary and painful as well
as/OR exciting and result in great joy. One thing that is constant is
that nothing remains the same - change is always in play in our lives.
Another thing that is a "truth" is that we can choose whether change is
love based or fear based - we can choose...
As with any kind of change, we ran into
hiccups. At one point I remember making the choice between OMG, what
are we doing? and opening my heart with love to envision the completed
project. I chose love over the panic and allowed myself to experience
the process of creation and the gift of the angelic support team joining
us! The project was actually fun!
If you are looking at a change in your
life, know that you aren't alone in your contemplation and you won't be
alone in implementing the change should you decide to do it. At every
given moment of your life, you are, indeed a crowd of angelic supporters
in the form of angels, guides and deceased loved ones! Ask them for
their guidance in making the decision that is for your highest good -
they can see the bigger picture of everything and won't steer you wrong!
In love and light,
Kate and Big Jim
