Finding Your Soul’s Song

As we move from lifetime to lifetime, our experiences in each life leave thumbprints. They make us who we are; it is what connects us to our soul group - the people who invite us to spread our wings and reconnect to our origin. We all have a song. We have a vibration...

Finding Your Soul’s Song

As we move from lifetime to lifetime, our experiences in each life leave thumbprints.  They make us who we are; it is what connects us to our soul group - the people who invite us to spread our wings and reconnect to our origin. We all have a song.  We have...

Cry, Cry Baby

I just had me a good cry.  You know the kind I'm talking about? The bellowing, pleading, convulsing kind?  The kind that, when I was done, I fell into my bed, exhausted, yet replenished.  The kind I notice myself avoiding.  I think, "Man, I hate crying."  But why?  Is...

Under Construction

The above image is my bathroom.  My place of warmth, comfort, cleanliness and clearing, my morning foundation for the past 7 years... until now.   The Bathroom Story and Surrender I share this image as a visual analogy between the earth's shifting energy and...

Third Eye OPEN UP!

The above image illustrates a striking similarity in the structures of the Egyptian Eye of Horus symbolizing great vision, protection, royal power, and good health with the pineal gland in the brain on the right. Astounding how advanced the ancient cultures were...

The Wealth of Time: Spend It Wisely

This was my first time channeling the Archangel Metatron.  Typically when I work with him, it is to go back and heal childhood trauma/wounds from current or past lives.  He, along with Sandalphon, is one of the few archangels who was once human: Enoch, the prophet. I...

A Guided Meditation: Let Go and Shift

This morning,1am:  I awoke to a blood curdling scream.  Bewildered, disoriented and, of course, blind, I searched with my hands the physical outlines of my bedside table and bed, fumbling my way through the bathroom toward my objective: a frantic Isabella, now 4...

Medicine for the Healer

As part of my process when I’m about to write, I tend to focus on patterns amongst my clients, the vast majority of whom are empaths and healers. Recently I’ve noticed that many are feeling depleted, exhausted by loved ones around them who ask for advice, but do not...

Coming Undone

I woke this morning with a song "Undo" by Bjork in my head.  As a throat-chakra-strong intuitive, waking up to specific lyrics happens almost daily.  It's how my guides speak to me.  The ear worm words repeating in my head: "It's not meant to be a strife. It's not...

OWN IT!

We forget why we are here. We get wrapped up in the presidential debates, religious dogma, who has what car, the usual. We have to get back to the basics of what is most important. We are here for each other. This means we need to come from a place of: Kindness...

Talking to Mary in Vézelay

In my last newsletter, I described my "HOT" French driving experience, AKA my musings on how doing for others as they would do unto you is a turn-on. I mean, everybody's doing it! Right? The next newsletters are going to focus on what happened, hot and otherwise (but...

The New HOT

I took a trip to France last month. I’ve had a lot of inquiries as to why I went, what I accomplished, etc. I started typing up a response email that turned into a book. Clearly I love to write, but I also realize you, my friends, may not have the same amount of time...

Perfect Divine Timing

Have you ever completely misconstrued what someone else said about or to you, and it totally killed the day or the relationship?  I recently had an experience where a dear friend of mine said something that, when I pondered over it (somewhat obsessively, I admit), I...

Embody the Divine Masculine

Father's Day of last year, I broached the topic of "balance" and the importance of recognizing the both the masculine and feminine aspects of our being.  Here of late, with March celebrating Women in History, women's/sister marches in 2017, and women speaking their...

Love the YOU You’re With

February month is categorically "love" month, but as I observe friends, family, even strangers, it is clear that not everyone is blissfully in love with their boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse - and that many are single, looking for love.  Seems to be a never-ending...

Mary Magdalene on Our Potential as a Human Race

I had planned in my own mind to chat a bit about "boundaries, protection and clearing" as a follow-up to my last newsletter.  But alas, as I sat in bed early one morning, I was blessed with a beautiful message.  And of course, it is my duty to share, so share I shall....

Good Read: Welcome 2018!!

First and foremost, Happy New Year 2018!!  I'm really excited about this year and what it has to offer. What does 2018 mean for us?  Check out Joanne Sacred Scribe's angel numbers. This newsletter's topic is all about acceptance, open-mindedness and listening without...

4 Minutes on Breathing

The holidays. I attempt to mentally prepare myself yearly starting right after Halloween when "Jingle Bells" prematurely starts playing over the loud speaker at the local retail store. No matter how hard I tell myself it is just part of the consumer aspect of our...

Channeling Mary Magdalene

As a skeptic, I am hesitant to put out there these channeled messages that I receive. My human, ego self tends to brush these gifts aside because, really, when this world seems so concrete and logical, how on earth is it possible to tap into such figures who have been...

To Thine Own Self Be the Truest

As many of you know, I was in San Bernardino the end of September where I conducted a workshop on self-empowerment, intuitive development, and a greater understanding of our energy. The vast majority of attendees were moms, single moms, working moms, definitely...

In the LIGHT of FORGIVENESS

Following up on my previous newsletter about letting go and focusing on what's most important, I thought it fitting to address the concept of forgiveness, particularly because we tend to feel like it is OK and even justified not to forgive in certain incredibly...

Let It Go! And Focus!

No, the topic of this newsletter is not a spin off of the movie, "Frozen."  It does involve, however, a personal story based on a shift in perspective (much like Elsa, but far more real).  In this blog, I'm going to share a story of perceived pain, rejection,...

Clearing the Clutter Part 2

This article is about clutter... or, more specifically, getting rid of it.  The fact of the matter is the more we have surrounding us, the more "baggage" we hold on to internally and the less functional we are on the whole.  And conversely, we tend to hoard when we...

If It Ain’t Broke…

We all know that life can be challenging. And it is through life experiences that we grow stronger, more aware, more compassionate, more loving.  Right now, we need to remember to look around us and consider that everyone suffers at some given point and time (cue...

Fill the Mind with Good

In conjunction with my last newsletter on the concept of the phoenix falling to ashes, I thought it timely to go back - as I often do with my journals and notes - and sort through my best methods of picking up the pieces.  As I was rummaging, I came upon this...

Remember the Phoenix

The above picture is an image captured last year on our back porch.  I call her my "Angel Phoenix." Two a.m. today I received a download.  Woohoo!  Another restless night.  For the record, 2-4 a.m. is when we receive the most pertinent messages and magnificent nuggets...

Clearing Space pt. 1

Before I delve into this month's topic on "clearing," I wanted to take a moment to thank you, again, for attending my past events or for signing up for my online meditation.  I hope that you have found the resources and information beneficial and applicable on your...

NOW Balance

I received some questions concerning my last newsletter from women whose dads were either not present or were abusive.  And I had another client whose mother possessed some of the above characteristics.  Their questions boiled down to the following: What do we do when...

Balancing the Masculine and Feminine – Thanks, Dad!

This newsletter is an ode to my father, just in time for Father's Day.  It's all about the growth that we have both experienced in our search for the balance between the Divine Masculine and Feminine - whether he realizes it or not! When I consider my father,...

The Inner Compass

One of the greatest gifts I have re-learned is the ability to tune in to what I call the "inner compass." I define this compass as the tool that allows me to communicate directly with my Source. Within each of us is that energy, that light, that knows what is right...

Think Before You Speak

This is one of my favorite archived blogs from my FB "Jessica Mangum Your Spiritual Path Finder" page.  Just in time for Mothers' Day.  I send this now because the mother-daughter relationship tends to be a tricky one, particularly from a clear communication...

Funny Things are Everywhere!

This past week, the family and I spent Spring Break in Washington, D.C.  Seems that every time I travel, take a shower, or use the toilet, I get some sort of "download" of wisdom.  Again, the Powers the Be do have a stellar sense of humor. Here is a "download" I...

Laughter and Light, A New Perspective

We choose what we want to see/feel. Any situation can be perceived differently. It's merely a question of how we can see it through a "glass half full" prism. One of the most beautiful lessons I have learned from the text in A Course in Miracles revolves around...

Run, Jess, Run!!!

Looking further into the concept of "weathering the storms" of life, I want to share with you my own thrilling encounters with numerous tornadoes and hurricanes, and how, when I saw those storms coming, I would sprint away from them almost as fast as they were...

The Nitty Gritty

This month I am focusing on the relevance of life's inevitable challenges as they relate to spiritual and personal growth. It's a topic we might dismiss perhaps because it can be perceived as "uncomfortable" or "not worth our time." However, life struggles yield the...

100% Unfiltered, Unconditional Love

Last Thursday, our sweet little gray tabby cat, Zoe, passed away.  She was Chad's cat (and therefore my adopted cat) of 16+ years.  When I found her, I was in shock as a myriad of thoughts and emotions swirled through my brain and heart space.  It took me a while to...

Looking for Love?

February is Love Month (thanks, Hallmark). And so, to be completely cliche, I am choosing to follow the hearts suit because: 1. Who and what we love (or not) is a hot topic right now. 2. We need to consider that regardless of what is happening, love is always all...

Bring in the Joy!

Because my reading and down time is rather limited, I decided to purchase an audiobook on the essence of joy.  I realized that though I am a pretty joyful person (when everything goes my way - Ha!), I still have so much more to learn and thus share.  So, based purely...

FINDING JOY in the EVERYDAY!

Each month this year, I will introduce and expand upon various topics concerning YOUR personal growth and expansion. This will include two monthly newsletters and video blogs* to complement the topics. My objective is to provide tools, tips, suggestions, and...

FOCUS on LOVE

Wisdom comes not from knowing or expecting from without, but from trusting and believing from within. There are those who do research, and those who live it. There are those who project, and those who merely observe. We must remember that if we allow what we see...

“Think Before You Speak”

These classic words of wisdom bear truth when it comes to how we use our voices for the betterment of society, to speak to heal, to encourage with love and kindness. But we need to keep the "thinking" piece in check. What we often do not realize, consider or remember...

Fear = Opportunity to Grow

I have a 13 year-old. Mary. Beautiful soul. Mary left for Thailand on the 11th of July. I had booked the tickets months in advance and was told that, because she was 13, I could not sign her up as an unaccompanied minor. This means she would have to travel from...

Why We Fear “The Psychic”

Well, why wouldn't we? Say you meet someone, ask what they do for a living, and they say, "I'm a psychic." Wouldn't you take a few steps back and then shut down all thoughts in an effort to protect yourself? Well, me too.Short story:When I first started...

Channeling and Trusting

Here's something I channeled yesterday when I was feeling overwhelmed and just poopy: "When we look at things from a place of pure light and love, we realize that there is no darkness - that darkness, in whatever form, cannot overpower us. All power and love, all good...

FOLLOW YOUR PASSION!!Passion + Purpose = Joy + Abundance

The theme of passion (strong emotion) and purpose (truly knowing and doing what fills us with happiness from the inside out) has been resurfacing for the past month, at least. And here is why we (I!!) need to pay attention! Our passion is directly related to our...

A WOW Year!! 2016 and Numerology

Before I start this blog post, I must express my gratitude to so many people with whom I shared laughter, tears, wisdom and insight, and unconditional love and friendship this past year. I am moved even as I sit here at my keyboard and type this when I think of all...

Defining Unconditional Love

This topic came up this morning as I read the text in ACIM (A Course in Miracles). I was reading about the symbolism of the white lily, and it was made abundantly clear that I needed to open my eyes and heart and listen. Here is what I heard:"There are many...

Fill the Mind with Good

This morning I woke with the baby cooing in her crib, a delightful surprise... until she started being the busy body that she is. After about 30 minutes of trying to keep her from searching, grabbing and destroying, I finally lost it. Well, I walked away, excused...

Lessons from a Wooden Salad Bowl

This story is one that has been repeated at least a hundred times, and it will be revisited at least a hundred more. It is a classic, and I am sharing it again, in writing, because the wooden salad bowl taught me the invaluable lesson about the beauty of letting go,...

Just Believe

NOTE: When we shift from fast-paced, on-the-go lifestyles to slowing down and becoming more aware of who we really are and what brings us joy from the inside out, it can be overwhelming! At first.But, here is the kicker. Actually, there are two kickers: we have an...

Don’t Think, Just Do

Ever have something you were so passionate about, but you told yourself it was impossible so you didn't do it? Ever regret not doing things or taking advantage of opportunities in your past only to realize that the window of opportunity was gone and, though you don't...

“The Devil’s Out of Fashion” – Dodie Smith

I keep pulling up the "Devil" card in my Tarot deck when I read myself. For those of you who are familiar with the cards, you know how unsettling that can be. The "Devil" traditionally symbolizes some sort of addiction or obsession. So, of course,...

What is Normal?

For those of you who are familiar with the movie classic, "Young Frankenstein," I like to refer to myself as "Abby Normal." I had a friend once who referred to normal as "a cycle on a dishwasher." It simply doesn't exist. If we ask...

How to Keep the Peace

Many of us have spent our lives running away and hiding from our emotions. We are repulsed by them almost. Take "anxiety" for example. We start to feel anxious. Then we start thinking, "Oh no! I hate this. I need to somehow distract myself to make this...

The Benefit of Overcoming Our Obstacles

We all have them. Obstacles, walls, never-ending bridges or even gaps that keep us stuck where we are. Where do they come from? Why do we experience them? What is their purpose??I have come to a place of general understanding, a place of acceptance, if you will. After...

How to Feel Complete

Understanding Who We ARE

Often we go through life thinking we are one type of personality or another - this comes either through our ego or by way of other people's observations of our behavior. We are labeled; we label ourselves.  We remain stagnant in the idea that we ARE what we are...

Overcoming Fear

Yesterday was a rough day for Jess. Nothing was going my way, it seemed. Baby got sick, dogs were driving me nuts, cats wanted to be fed all the time, seems like all I got in the mail was bills, and no one was returning my calls. Do you ever have those days? I hate...

All is Full of Love

All is Full of Love" is one of my favorite songs by Bjork - and one of my greatest musical preferences of all time.  It's been playing over and over in my head here of late.  Of course, when any song repeats itself in "ear worm" fashion, there is a...

GRATITUDE

About a week ago, I posted a "positivity challenge" on my primary FB page and challenged others to join in. I can thank a former co-worker for sending it to me in the first place; I think she was trying to tell me something (Thanks, Jennifer). What is ironic...

My Journey – My Inner Voices

People often ask me how I am able to communicate my spirit guides, how it all began.  What I can say, in a gist, is that I was born with it, lost it, and later learned to reconnect.  I believe that everyone is born with this gift of feeling, hearing, seeing things...
