Tag Archive: Connecticut shootings


I received this email recently and when I went to respond directly to the writer, I got a mailer daemon.  So I thought I would respond here on the blog, since I think this is information for us all.  Please read on…from Reader A.
Hi Deborah
 I was just reading over your blog and found it very interesting.  I am so sorry you have to see those glimpses of events, it sure does sound like torture.  I don’t know if you have any mediumistic abilities or know anyone who does, but I have been feeling increasing anxiety over those souls who were lost in the CT shooting.  I am so worried that these people won’t realize they were killed or even worse that the spirit of the shooter could still be holding them there.  I really hope these adults and children all made their way safely into the light.  I wish there was some way to know for sure.  This was my idea to help.  I certainly hope these victims are not still suffering, even after the death of their physical bodies.

My Response:
Thank you so much for taking the time to write.  Please don’t feel anxious for the souls that have past.  Although it may sound crazy, it was a part of their path, their parent’s path, and also amazingly the killer Adam Lanza’s path. They have played a role in a much bigger picture – to create an opportunity for love and connection across the planet.  I was talking to a friend yesterday and she said, “why did it have to be little kids??  Why did it have to be so terrible”  In response I heard the words – “It had to be so terrible to make people take notice.  To stop everyone, to make them pause to then come together.  It was the only way to get the world’s attention.”  and that made sense to me.  I know this is difficult for us to comprehend, it is even for me, but it’s true.
Know that the children and staff have crossed over perfectly.  Others were actually preparing for this on the other side.  Over there, this is a joyous occasion.  Hard to believe but it’s true.  They went home.  🙂  Heartbreaking for those of us left behind, especially the parents and families, but it’s part of a larger design.  And they are honored and loved everywhere because of it.

I would like to encourage anyone with questions to ASK them here on the blog.  Or send them to me personally.  I am doing my part to help – and this blog is a big piece of that.  So please – if you have questions, ASK.  I will do my best to help.
Thank you for reading, and peace to all.  Let’s continue to send love and support to Connecticut, and around the world.

I wanted to share a simple completely free idea that came to me to honor everyone who lost their lives on Friday in Connecticut, and their families.
I am a MOM (my kids are now 11 and 14) – my family and I live outside of Austin in Leander, Texas. I woke up on Saturday and was looking at our tree, at all of the handmade ornaments my kids have made through the years and was overcome with sorrow for the parents whose trees hold those same ornaments – but in a split second the joy they felt when looking at them turned to something completely different and it broke my heart for them, again. One of the things that has haunted me about this tragedy is that it hit so close to Christmas, and that those kids wouldn’t be there in their homes with their families for that special day that kids look so forward to all year long.
Then something came to me.
Let’s invite them into ALL OF OUR HOMES THIS CHRISTMAS. Let’s make ornaments for them, put them on our OWN trees so WE can share Christmas with THEM. Let’s make them with our own children, as a way to connect and heal. To give something to someone else – their families – from right where we are in our own homes. LOVE.
What if each house had an ornament for one of the kids. Each tree. Everywhere.
SO I invite you to join me in making ornaments. Out of anything. Just take the time to sit down wherever you are, work, home, SCHOOL – This is a great project for teachers and districts to use as a tool to heal. Or at the very least, to honor. And somewhere on the front write a child or teacher’s name that was lost on Friday. Decorate it however you want…
But I’m not creative you say? Well – if that’s the case I’ve included this little poem that also “came” to me. After I wrote it, I noticed it was kind of in the shape of a Christmas Tree. Fitting. So Cut it out, write a name on give it a kiss or press it to your heart, and hang it on a tree.

The idea of ornaments for these children on trees in homes, in schools, in churches, on trees on the sides of the roads (we do that here in Austin, decorate trees all along the roads) is a big one, it’s HUGE! So I need your help. Let’s show the world our LOVE. Let’s show the Parents we love their kids too. I invite you to make your ornament then post a picture of it or even better you holding it to FACEBOOK. I would love to see nothing but pictures of ornaments in my feed…and please forward this email around to anyone and everyone! Let’s see how long it takes the WORLD to get involved. I thank anyone who helps make this small idea a BIG REALITY. Let’s show our LOVE and SUPPORT to the parents in Connecticut. We are with you, and we will share Christmas (or Hanukkah) with your Kids this year. And the ornaments we made will go in with my kids ornaments, to be put up again every year. In our house, we will never forget.
A group of friends and I got together last night to honor the victims and do this project. We laughed and cried, worked together in silence, then we shared our ornaments with each other and told the story behind it. It was an amazingly special time. I’ll post a video of last night later,  for now I just want to get this idea out and working.  PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COPY AND PASTE THIS INTO AN EMAIL AND FORWARD.  Let’s get LOVE out there!!!
LOVE TO ALL –

Hello Everyone –

I have been receiving emails from around the planet.  I received one that opened something up for me, and I wanted to share my response here – If I get the go ahead from the sender, I will share the original email in comments below.  I invite you to KEEP sharing your personal experiences here – we are connected and meant to speak up – share our stories.  Thank you to everyone who has shared theirs.

Thank you so much for the wonderful email.  We share that connection of receiving information – and then having that overwhelming sick feeling when what we were seeing finally makes sense.  Ugh, I know that exact feeling in that exact moment.  I hope that is subsiding a bit today for you, as for me, I am seeing something amazing.
Those of us who “saw” or “felt” prior to the event – we are meant to be something like the pole that holds up a massive tent – that’s the best way of explaining – and funny, originally I saw an umbrella, then said that about the tent, and spirit said to me, NO – say an umbrella!  So, OK!  we are like the supporting pole of an umbrella – meant to stand up WHERE WE ARE and project love and light to hold up this huge web of supporting love for others.  That’s our jobs in this time.
I am also seeing something else – the part of How The Grinch Stole Christmas – when the Grinch steals the Who’s gifts and they sing anyway.  Their joy lifting up to grow the Grinch’s heart.
This is overwhelming to me.  A Love and Joy is growing that is expanding up and over the broken-hearted, love rising up through the cracks of pain and grief.  Holding those in pain with compassion.  Pulling them into ourselves and offering our own hearts to offer relief and comfort and expecting nothing in return.  Now I understand the umbrella.  We are each making the choice to open our own umbrellas one to cover another, opening here and there, all over, to create one large cover of love.  I ask you – please open your umbrella and let’s connect to get through this together.
