Temporary People

Walking out...and vanishing.

Walking out…and vanishing.

Have you ever experienced meeting someone who would be in your life a short time, and then just sort of fades away?  Your friends either don’t remember this person, or if they do, it’s in a vague way?

These people, in my life anyway, are the ones that can’t be found, yet were with me at very important moments and might have even been a catalyst for change.  I wonder about them.  Were they angels?  Were they demons?  Were they both?  Were they spirit who borrowed someone’s body for a short time?

I met one of mine on a New Years Eve many many years ago.  Many!  I was set to meet a friend at Saint Marks Bar & Grill in NYC.  It was the setting for the Rolling Stones “Waiting For A Friend”, which was quite ironic since I got stood up!  However, another person came into the bar who was also looking for my friend.  So in the end, she stood us both up, and we ended up having an amazing night, going from club to club and basically laughing through dawn!

We remained friends for a short time afterward.  On my birthday 8 months later, however, she spotted Steve Stevens walking down MacDougal Street as we were headed for the Scrap Bar.  I told her I didn’t want to follow Mr. Stevens, I wanted to see my friends.  She smacked me across the face and ran away….never to be seen again!

There have been many others.  Some appear for a few minutes, offer advice or make me laugh, and then are simply gone.

Do you have any experiences like these?  Am I the only one?


How I Know I’ve Been “Called In” To Work


borrowed from Kimberly at http://anightowlblog.com/


I honestly don’t know how interesting this will be, (if at all), but if you like it, would you let me know?  I’m a Leo, and I need a little boost now and then.  Just kidding!  How’s your St Patrick’s Day Monday going?  I am so delighted (yes, delighted!!!) that I no longer have to travel to New York City on the train during this holiday.  You used to hear me grumble “I hate St Patrick’s Day!”, and “It’s Amateur Night (a/k/a New Years) so let’s ride the rain, get sick and fall asleep!”  Hahahahahahah.  The pictures I should have taken!  Oh well.  If you are not from this area, you may want to have a look at this.  It’ll explain all of the above!

I was watching the wonderful Kim Russo on Haunting Of.  I love to watch her work.  She’s so smooth and seamless!  She hears/sees/feels and acknowledges immediately.  I do this weird jerking thing sometimes when I feel a spirit pull for attention.  It’s so stupid, but it’s really funny!  And that generally doesn’t happen until I’ve failed to recognize any of the “calling cards” being thrown my way.  I try to think about something and then I end up hearing a song in my head, or visualizing a door, or something else fairly clear and obvious, and I won’t return to my original thought for varying amounts of time.

Sometimes, an hour or two before a reading it happens, odd things begin to happen.  A remote will fall from the couch when no one is on it and it wasn’t in an unsafe position. Knocking.  Banging.  Something falling.  That means someone wants to be an early bird and share that excitement that someone they love is coming because of them.  9 times out of 10 I’ll be thinking nothing of these things, and just let them factor into the background noise. Can you imagine how frustrating that must be to a spirit?  Later, after I’ve meditated and prepared, I get it.  It’s clear immediately (and then I don’t get pushed!)

Just now, as I was planning this post, I felt a song pushed into my head.  Like the old jukeboxes used to grab the old record or cd and pull in the new one.  It’s not a song I’m familiar with – wait!  No, I know it.  It’s a Bread song.  “Every Thing I Own” – I’m hearing the lyrics “You Sheltered Me From Harm, Kept Me Warm, Kept Me Warm.”  Hmmmm, I wonder who this is from, who it is for, and what it means. I’m sure I’ll be getting a call soon! 

When I was a kid, the messages I got were vivid and clear.  Maybe too much so.  I think that’s why I turned it off for such a long time.  The sad thing is that you cannot turn it off, only cover it and try to drown it out.  It’s exhausting.  It feels great to embrace this full time now and be able to share my gift.  I hope you’re all having a great Monday and that some of you have a good hangover remedy ready for the morning!


See you later!
