Posts Tagged ‘Jesus’
One of the things I hear most from clients is how they can’t believe that these amazing divine messengers come to talk to them. Somehow in our world God, Jesus, and others are ‘out there’ and we are lowly beings that are ‘here.’
Because I’ve had experiences my entire life with the messengers, to me they are normal, regular folk. Yes, with special gifts of unconditional love, but definitely accessible. I have never called out to God directly or otherwise and not received an answer.
A few years ago I went to a workshop Betsy Bergstrom held in Michigan. I felt like I had to get there, and when I did, I had some of the most impactful experiences of my life. I’ll share some of the others in another post, but the one with Jesus has changed my life.
You see, I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas when I was little. Right in the heart of the bible belt. When I was three, I had an experience with Jesus and an angel. For years I had ‘felt’ things in the dark – during the daytime too – but especially in the dark. I would play games to keep my mind distracted. Open one eye and imagine I was as big as the room like Alice in Wonderland, close it and open the other one and then imagine I was tiny as an ant so I could scurry under the mattress if anything tried to come near me.
One night, as I laid on my side closing one eye and then the other, I could see the light from the hallway coming in on me, but then, in the corner next to the doorway, another doorway opened up and a beautiful luminous angel came in. She was all sparkly and light. For some reason, I wasn’t afraid. I just looked at her mesmerized with her light, and then, right behind her was a man with a long robe and long hair. I don’t remember a beard, but I do remember how I felt. I felt safe. Cutting through the fear, I felt safe in his presence. He was illuminated, too, just not as translucent as the angel.
He told me his name was Jesus, and He told me he knew me, and that there was nothing to be afraid of. I would always be in His care and supported. At the time I don’t know that I realized what that meant, but those words would sustain me many, many times throughout the coming years.
I have talked with Jesus over the years, but I have not ‘seen’ him in clear sight since that night. During Betsy’s workshop, he came through so clearly, speaking and addressing my fear of sharing who I am with others.
He said, “Tina, there is no heart I do not know. Set aside your concerns about religions and care for my people. There is not one heart that I do not know and who does not know me.”
As clear as that was, it would take many other experiences before I would truly be able to release the fear created after I saw Jesus when I was three.
As that little girl, I went ‘looking’ for him, and people told me to go to church because that is where Jesus is. When I went to church, I went alone on a bus as no one else in my family went to church. When I asked people at church where “Jesus” was because I wanted to talk to Him, I was told that Jesus is all around. When I told them I had seen Him and wanted to sit with Him and talk to Him, then I was told that was impossible and that people who say they can do that are evil. I was told the bible talks very specifically about people who say these things.
Now, 37 years later, I find all of this so hard to believe, but I look at my own child who at 3 seemed like he was 8, and can believe it.
It took many, many years to accept myself for who I am…intuitive gifts and all. But one thing I know for sure is that Jesus loves ALL the children of the world, yes including you, He told me so.
And, since I’ve let go, many, many people who have left Jesus have begun to have a new relationship with Him. I see the grace and presence I knew way back then as these people embrace the Jesus they’ve always known in their heart.
I don’t know why these things happen, all I know is that He is responding to many people who are calling to Him right now. He is the message, I just happen to be lucky enough to be the messenger.

I’ve known Jesus’s Presence for a very long time. Since I was three, I have known his promise…You are loved.
A few years ago, I attended a conference. This conference gathering was recommended to me by many of my colleagues at the time. I entered the hotel and the wave of desperation met me at the door. I could literally feel a suffocating wave of desperation flowing down the corridor.
Immediately I didn’t want to go in. Who wants to feel that? At the time, I knew that feeling well, but in my spirit, I didn’t feel desperate. I just had a few big challenges ahead. I can handle it. I’m sure the people in that room likely told themselves the same things. I’m sure they had no idea what kind of energy they were emitting into this seemingly huge space that all at once felt so small to me.
I made my way to the ballroom…the source of the desperate energy. As I stood at the back, trying to feel into where I should go to sit, I felt Jesus’s Presence next to me. In my mind, I could see him standing next to me with His arm around my shoulder. He leaned in and pointed with his other arm.
“Do you see those people?” He asked.
“Yes,” I nodded in the image I saw.
“Those people are looking for something,” he said. “They are looking for me. They just don’t know it.”
I felt hot tears glide down my cheeks as I realized the Truth.
The conference was all about money…how to make it and how to master it. I was there because my colleagues said it would be good for me to learn how these people marketed. After all, I am a marketer, they said. You can learn from them how to market better, they said. And, I believed them. When, in truth, my entire life I have always asked and gotten what I desired. In truth, I have always served and been served.
I felt the sting of my judgments in the hallway. Truth was, I was as desperate as they all felt. A perfect match.
The answer, they thought, was to get more money. I listened as people yelled angrily about their seeming lack of it and the promoters seeming lack of practical tools to ‘get’ it. I watched others walk around like zombies under the trance of the conference promoters. I heard still others berate themselves for taking care of their families instead of following the financial teachings of the ‘guru’ who had created the conference.
I felt hot tears fill my eyes and a burning in my stomach knowing that Jesus knew each plea, heard each desire, felt each ache and pain. He was there. But their focus was not on Him and the comfort He could provide as the Great Compassion and Comfort. Their attention was on the person at the front of the room promising the answer to their problems…and each one must have thought their answer was money otherwise they would not be there. I knew the reverse must have also been true…perhaps they had asked Jesus for help, but didn’t know how to listen to get the answers…because my truth is…there is always an answer coming back.
As God would have it, I checked out 10 movies last week to have something to watch while walking on the treadmill. Two of them had this one gospel song in it…Come Home. The movies could not have been more different. And, each time, the song just felt so sweet. We watched one last night and one this afternoon. Hearing it a second time inspired this post. Coincidence? This song reminded me of this life-changing moment…one that will never leave me…and I hope one that will inspire you to remember you can always Come Home. This song has such a beautiful sound to it, too.
Jesus has told me over the years to not worry about the religions of the world. He has asked me to help his people, indicating everyone regardless of who they are, what they believe. He has said, “I know every heart and every heart is already mine.” I get the feeling He means that He is always there…when you want to talk, when you want comfort, when you desire compassion…your heart is the bridge to that unconditional love you already are. Just turn inward and start connecting to the love inside.
To me, I don’t see ‘sinner’ in the same light I was taught in church. I see it more as a person who has lost their way…one who has lost their divine connection, one who is desperate, so to speak. And, unlike this song implies…I believe Jesus comes to us when we call. That’s what I’ve always experienced and seen. The question is…where is our attention? On the answer that is coming back or on the answer we think we already know.
(G) Softly and tenderly (C) Jesus is (G) calling, (Em) Calling for (A7) you and for (D) me. (D7) (G) Patient and loving He's (C) waiting and (G) watching, (C) Watching for (D) you and (D7) for (G) me. Chorus: Come (D7) home, come (G) home. (D) Ye who are (G) weary (A7) come (D) home. (D7) (G) Earnestly, tenderly (C) Jesus is (G) calling, (C) Calling, oh (G) sinner (D7) come (D) home. Why should we linger when Jesus is bleeding, Bleeding for you and for me. Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon, Pardon for you and for me. Chorus Oh for the wonderful love he has promised, Promised for you and for me. Though we have sinned He has mercy and pardon, Pardon for you and for me. Chorus (Often this last verse is not sung) Time is now fleeting the moments are passing, Passing from you and from me. Shadows are gathering, dense night is coming, Coming for you and for me. Lyrics and Music by Will L. Johnson

A few years ago, I felt compelled to plant roses in my yard. At the time, I experienced a deeply transformational experience with Mother Mary, Jesus and nature. Roses seemed to beckon and call from every corner of the Universe.
I’ve noticed in sessions that roses show up often with Mother Mary and Jesus. These beauties always remind of bittersweetness… the beauty of the rose combined with the thorns.
I’ve written about this divine connection and roses, and many people send their rose stories…these stories, in particular, highlight the beauty of awareness…of interacting with divine and of seeing the messages of love in everything.
Beverly, a dear friend and soul sister, emailed a couple of rose stories I wanted to share with you all!
Just so thought of you when I saw this (completely unplanned) reflection … it is too funny … Jesus does love his roses and so do you so I just had to share this picture of my last rose of summer … I hope life is wonder-full for you in every moment … God bless, and remember to smell the roses … don’t you just love the way messages arrive? … xoxo Bev
Here’s another from Bev…
Must share another rose story about what I thought was the last rose of summer till this one came along ) … It was beautiful too, and I brought it indoors thinking there was going to be frost and placed it beside the same picture of Jesus (see the photo below)… it was there for quite a few days and still looked beautiful … then I went out of town thinking it would be wilted when I returned … but … when I got back it was still amazing and stayed that way for a long time … wow… and … when it finally faded, and dried … at the very centre, a petal dried in the shape of a heart … such a gift …
Can you see the heart in the center of the rose below?
Beverly… thanks for sharing your heart and beautiful stories with us!
This year has flown by so quickly I can’t even believe it. I mean, really, where did our first three months go?
Easter is here sooner this year, too. My mom totally missed it in her arts and crafts business because it is here so early. Did you get the Easter decorations up?
Tomorrow is Good Friday… time to think about Jesus and his walk on this Earth and how He came back to life – and gave life too.
This weekend, a friend is going to come and help us peel back the overgrown landscape in our yard. The roses planted two years ago that have grown amazingly well, the bushes that were overplanted in the yard to begin with, and the hollies behind the pool that grow and grow and grow.
Can’t wait to see what happens… feels like growth is in the air!
Our overgrown backyard. Time for pruning!
This past week, a friend and I talked about life. What’s the point came up over and over again. If we aren’t here to ‘rescue’ or ‘save’ people…if we aren’t here to ‘force’ or ‘make’ something happen…if we aren’t here to accomplish some superhuman type of mission, well, then, exactly WHAT is the point?
We laughed and laughed as we exaggerated the seeming ‘impossibility’ of the answer. And… brilliantly… as Messengers do… she sent me an email a few days later… with the truth I’m writing about. I’ll share the email in a couple of days as I can’t remember it right now (only that it was BRILLIANT) and I’m upstairs on my laptop (and, yes, I don’t know my login to get in remotely).
As I’ve heard over and over again in the hundreds of sessions I’ve done with clients, the point is… love God, love yourself, love others and have a rockin good time with the intersection of those three. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? And, it is… truly, when we stay in our ‘true self.’ It is REALLY hard when we don’t.
Boy, do I know that!
But, what does that really mean?
It means… live in your highest truth (see yourself as God does), ask yourself…What do I LOVE to do?, How would I like to BE each and every day?, and then ask…How can I share the LOVE I am in a way that others will LOVE?
I have seen the miracles that happen when the Messengers come and show people who they truly are. It would be impossible for me to remember all of them, but one that really stayed with me was when Jesus came to show a woman how He saw her. It took my breath away.
What I remember was a little girl playing on the beach. She ran along, carefree and so very loving. So far away from the burdens of the world. Jesus walked hand-in-hand with her on the beach. He began to talk about knowing her for so very long. How He knew her when she was only a spark. A star of light…and He began to share about her heart. The design of her desire to serve others.
As I write this, I find myself struggling to remember the details, and yet the feeling swirled around us in a magical way. There’s something that happens when the person recognizes the Truth about themselves. The judging part may not accept it, but the heart knows the Truth when it hears it, and somehow…everything changes.
Are you willing to see the Truth of all that you are? I hope so… the view is breathtaking.
The point is to discover it and share it with others! God has created you to be you – What does the ‘you’ God knows (and you do too) look like?
If you don’t know…ask God to show you. Just pray and then open up your heart to what you see, feel, hear. You are the spark in the creator’s eye!
