My last post was about feeling stuck.  But at the writing of this post, the waters are swirling, the flood gates are open, waves are crashing and its GO TIME.  So this post is about Catfish, which I’ve almost been obsessed about lately, A Course in Miracles which has come back into my life with a positive vengeance and oddly, animal totems.  Please stay with me.  This is going to be a true stream of consciousness experience.  If you live in a cave and don’t know about Catfish, you can click on the picture below to go straight to the official MTV page.  

CATFISH means a lot of different things to me and the extended people in my current experience – and they know who they are, he he.  Having said that, no, I’ve never Catfished anyone, nor have I been Catfished.  I didn’t have much thought about it, I don’t watch any shows on MTV.  But then Catfish came onto my radar when we started working on our show, and was brought to my attention from the farthest place I would have thought, Kelly, a very logical member of the Traveling Psychic Supper Club told me about it.  Wait.  Kelly told me to watch something on MTV.  This caught my attention.  So I watched it.  And I liked it.  Then I forgot about it, kind of.  I always really liked the human aspect of it, and that Nev had been through it himself, so could relate to the very real emotions those that had been “catfished” were experiencing.  I connected to that, because psychically I have always had the experience of connecting to people – friends, acquaintances and the people I read through stories and personal experience.  

So since the new Catfish season is about to start, it’s been all over MTV again.  I was able to sit down and watch the Catfish movie – which really caught my attention, the ending when two people sit down, face to face, the hurter and the hurt and face each other just raw and exposed – to talk in a place of no defense, no judgment, it just is what it is.  That is powerful.  And that makes me think of the work I’ve done in the past years via A Course in Miracles – which I’ve recently picked up again, in perfect time, again, in relation to Kelly.  This non-coincidence is not lost on me.  🙂

If you are familiar with the Course, you know how amazing it is.  If you aren’t then you should look into it.  Even if it’s just to figure out the connection between the Course and Catfish.  The Course teaches everything is love.  Pain, Anger and Judgment are all just Love, flipped and looked at the wrong way.  That we are all one, so in being all one, no person is separate from each other, or our source, which is also part of the one.  So since we are not separate, how can one person harm or hurt another?  That this existence is just this amazingly precise fabrication – a dream that we have created to see ourselves as separate.  But we’re not.  So that brings me back to Catfish.

So obviously in the show, as in the original movie we are following a story – a profile of a non-existent person has been fabricated to create a relationship that without that fabrication (at least on one side) wouldn’t exist.  A whole relationship – has been fabricated.  It’s a dream that both parties have subscribed to – and have created this whole other existence on.  To both, it’s very real – a story they’ve both subscribed to and fallen into.  This is a tiny variation of this dream state we have collectively fabricated – that separates us all as individuals.  In Catfish the Movie we are viewers, and are able to watch this unfolding which, by all normal means should end in a conflict, a fight, defenses and anger.  But it doesn’t.  It’s amazing.  It ends simply in a desire to understand, and still, through a betrayal, connect.  And in this, the opportunity is presented to see Angela’s side, something that wouldn’t have happened if all the above emotions had had their way.  And when I saw it, her side, as I’m sure others did as well, I could say, “wow” – OK, this person is totally isolated, and in this attempt to reach out, in the most hidden of ways, I get it.  I wouldn’t do it, but I can GET IT.  And you see the whole crew – Nev especially – GET IT.  And those emotions of anger – you can see them turn.  I think that’s pretty amazing.  And it’s a start.  It’s a start of something big, and a wave, a chance to see someone not as canniving, manipulative or a user, but as vulnerable, afraid and seeing themselves as not good enough.  In that, forgiveness, and a human connection is made.  I get it.  And I like it.  The concept is presented as entertaining, which is the hook, but the underlying story of shared forgiveness and connection is not lost.  At all.  It is a seed that is planted, that in some places will grow.  This is something I (We) hope to create with our own show – not in the way like Catfish, but seeing it present there shows me we can – Through a Psychic Connection, shared through a story.  

So when I was looking up different stuff about Catfish – I came across this on http://www.starstuffs.com/animal_totems/dictionary_of_wateranimals.html– which perfectly describes where I am right now.   And it does a pretty good job of describing what Catfish the show is creating too.  Pretty Amazing. 


Transformation of the spirit, time to discard what is not needed any more, teaches to have a greater sensitivity in communication. Listen and feel to what is going on around you. Catfish will teach discernment with heightened senses along with sharpening intuitions and feelings. Fish in general show how to swim the currents of life, use of intuition to navigate effectively, aids in attuning to the world of emotions, the un/subconscious and other-worlds, heightened senses including visions, dreams and related psychic abilities. Do you currently feel stuck? The river says it is time flow. Fish can show how to ride the tide to new adventures.

HELL YEA!!  My whirlpool is spinning and the waters are rushing.  And I am ready.  The River says it’s time to flow.  I’m ready to ride the tide to new adventures, with the perfect pieces and people around me.  

I’m with the River, I Say – It’s GO TIME. 





So today I had my very first “Long Island Medium” Moment.  I’m taking steps every day to come out of the “Clair Closet” and today was a big one for me.  While sitting in a makeup artist’s chair and chatting I did it.  I had to.  I actually said the words… “I’M A MEDIUM…and you are doing the right thing.  Additionally, someone is very proud of you.  I don’t know who, but someone is very proud of you.”  Because I don’t usually communicate with the dead, I knew it was someone living.

I know, Theresa, I couldn’t believe it either.  I actually opened my mouth and the words came out.  And guess what?



The response I got was positive and accepting.  The receiver of the information was happy to hear it, and I was happy to share it.  I won’t go into the story, it’s not my place to, but I opened my big mouth and when the words came out the lovingness and acceptance I felt not only from my makeup artist (who I didn’t know before meeting her today – and what I shared wasn’t even about make up – a door was opened in our conversation that lead to my “reading”) but from just everywhere – was amazing and all-encompassing.  And the funny thing was, I wasn’t even planning to go to MAC today.  I went on the fly, after ditching my Course In Miracles study group.  But after meeting and talking to this wonderful young woman (and her friend who she also brought over to meet me) I knew that’s why I was there, that’s why I had ditched class, and dragged my friend along – who’s very first ACIM group it would have been – was to share and validate that everything was absolutely right and perfect.  And there’s nothing better than that.


So what I am saying to YOU is this – if you are receiving messages for people but not sharing, why not?  If you are not doing what you feel like you SHOULD be doing in your BONES, WHY NOT??  People are ready to hear your message, and waiting to receive your insight.  I know, it happened today.  My first ever…”I’m a medium” moment.  And it wasn’t bad.  It wasn’t scary, it was well received.  In short it was RIGHT.  and what can be better than that?


Hello All, I hope that everyone is having a wonderful saturday.  I’m going to get right to it.  I just finished reading an AMAZING book, which is part of my journey, and now is part of yours.  I want to bring you to the place I am now, starting as close as I can from the beginning.

I started writing then erased everything I had down.  The beginning is too far back, so I’ll start again.

A few years ago I was at half price books, one of my favorite bookstores, and a book caught my attention – The Celestine Prophecy.  You can see an interesting article on the basis of the book here:http://deoxy.org/9insight.htm – written by James Redfield, the author.

I didn’t know anything about it, but bought it and put it on the shelf.  For about 3 years.  One day it caught my attention, and I pulled it down and read it.  It was incredible, but touched on some things it was hard for me to get my head around, but I read on.  I would like to say this is a novel, but if you can see the ideas that are presented throughout it, that’s really the point, to “read between the lines”.  It was very much in line with another book I study, which has become an amazing part of my life, A Course in Miracles

ACIM is a phenomenal book which I attended a study group for “religiously” for a while, even though the book has nothing to do with religion.  It’s simply about LOVE and FEAR and Illusion.  If  you read this blog, you probably know of it.  If not, you should definitely check it out.  A study group is a great way to get your head around it.  Actually, if you are located in far north Austin, all the way up to Liberty Hill I’m starting a group here, please contact me.  I invite you to join it.   Or I invite you to attend the next Traveling Psychic Supper Club event.  Or just keep reading the blog.

Also, ACIM isn’t just a book, it’s more like a way of life.  For me at least.  Some people find it too difficult to understand, or dislike or even hate it because it’s outside of a certain realm of thought.  As for me, it answered so many questions I had and helped me to understand my own purpose, outside of the “human” way of thinking, which is go to work, make money, have things.  None of that has ever spoken to me, and ACIM helped me to understand why.

So because I had knowledge of ACIM I was able to grasp the underlying story of  Celestine Prophecy.  I got it, and it was good.  It enhanced my desire for spiritual growth, and was a pretty good story to boot.  But most importantly, I think it planted a seed in my mind that would allow me to be open to the NEXT story I needed to read, it prepped me by opening my mind a bit more.

Then another day recently I was at Half Price again, to get my daughter’s copy of Lord of the Flies – required summer reading…yuck.  I hit the metaphysical section as always, nothing really jumped out at me, then I saw a huge clearance section in the back, so I went to look around.  As I was in the back, and I hadn’t been in the store more than 30 minutes, a MASSIVE clap of thunder startled me.  I turned around and saw it was POURING outside.  Torrentially.  I wasn’t going anywhere for a while.  So I went back over to the metaphysics section and sat down to have a look at the books I had picked up.  When I was sitting on the floor something told me to look up.  I looked up at a book that caught my eye, so I stood up to check it out.  After I had a look, I sat down on the floor again, in the spot right under the book I had been drawn to.  Then my eyes settled on ANOTHER book named The Barn Dance.  I picked it up and had a look.  The copy I picked up was signed.  There were three copies, they were all signed.  I thought that was weird, they were all gifts to three different people, from 3 different people.  So I picked up the book next to them, also by James F. Twyman to see if it was signed as well.  It wasn’t, but this was the book I was meant to find.  After all of that.  The storm that kept me there.  Seeing the other book, then sitting down underneath it, so I would see the other original book that drew my attention.  This is how it happens.  This is how I found what I was looking for.  And I wasn’t even looking for it at all, I had already decided on my purchases for that day.  I wasn’t looking for it.  It was looking for me.  The book is called EMISSARY OF LIGHT.

And if you are reading this, it is looking for you too.  In fact on the back cover a quote by the writer of CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD actually says that – “Your Soul has placed your hands upon this book”   It doesn’t get much clearer than thatFind it and read it as soon as you can.  This book is written as a novel as well, but if you get the newer (10th anniversary edition) version it has a forward written by the author about why it was written as a novel, but it’s based on his own actual experience.

I am an EMISSARY, although I’ve always considered myself more of a TRANSMITTER – of ideas, of information, helping connect people who are meant to be connected.  And I’ve also talked before about being a KEEPER.  Not because I’m important or special, but because it’s what I am  supposed to do.  I accept it and I do it.  So now I hope you will accept the idea that I present to you as well.  You are an EMISSARY.  BE an EMISSARY.  Pass this on to as many as you can, they are EMISSARIES too.  If you are a blogger, please reblog.  If you are simply a reader, please accept my invitation to join us and accept then pass on what is simply…peace.  This is the real way things are meant to be.  I am not asking to reblog to up my stats – I’m not interested in that – but to get this information out there – so others can wake up and live in LOVE, and step away from FEAR.  I am not here to impress you with ME, I am here to impress you with YOU.  You are an EMISSARY.  BE AN EMISSARY.  Take this next step into your souls evolution, it is not only your evolution, but an evolution that involves us all.  If you do accept this invitation, I would love to hear back from you on your thoughts and feelings about this book.  Not for me, but for others.  Thank you for being a part of my journey, and for allowing me to be a part of yours.  NAMASTE.

Here are some links to the author’s pages, or pages dedicated to the ideas from the books.
