A Haunting to Remember
by Jennifer Leigh Scott aka The Guidance Goddess
Danica was tired. She was bone tired, in fact. The Autumn days had become chilly and dreary, and she was lonely - lonely for human companionship. She had no shortage of chatter, for Danica had begun to see and hear things again. At least that’s what it seemed like; she didn’t know if she was crazy or not, and she had been so sure that she had received enough counseling and blocked the chatter out so that it would never return again. She longed for a friend, an advisor, anyone who would understand. She was afraid that was never to be.
Danica came from a long line of Witches, Seers, Psychics. However, it was rough for her Mother and her. They were chased out of every small town they settled in, after the townspeople used them up for their insights, natural healing methods, and psychic visions. It always turned bad; inevitably someone would get a Reading, not liking what was said because they had no desire to use their own power to take control of the situation presented and thus take control of their life. They wanted the Witch to do it for them. And sadly, Danica’s Mother Jillyan had passed on without really teaching Danica how to protect herself from the dark energies, or to hone her gifts.
Danica was living in a secluded spot in a town where the people who had known her Grandmother were long dead or moved elsewhere. The sprawling old mansion that her Grandmother had left to her was full of old energies, old magicks, herbs, mortars and pestles, talismans, candles galore, drafts, and lots of Spirits. The drafts seemed to have multiplied this October evening, and Danica stoked the fire and shivered a little in her long white nightgown. She climbed into the big four poster canopy bed and prayed that the chatter would be still tonight.
Danica dozed off briefly, and suddenly shivered under the thick comforter. Then she felt a creeping warmth that started at her feet. There was a weight shift on the bed, as if someone had sat down on it. She jumped up.
“Hello Love. I’ve been wondering how long it would take before you took notice of me.”
Danica attempted to jump up, arms and legs flailing, but the large masculine figure held her down easily. “No need for all of that Dear. I am not here to harm you. You’ve been waiting for me all of your life.” She looked up tentatively, taking in a broad shouldered male with platinum blonde hair, a strong jaw, and a sure, confident expression. For some reason Danica felt a growing sense of calm, and she knew who he was. Somehow, she knew that she had been looking and waiting for him all of her life. She also knew that he was not human, was not of this world. What in the world was going on?
This was something altogether new and different. Although her pulse was racing and she was almost afraid to look him in the eyes, Danica knew that her life had just changed forever. She felt that he - whoever he was - was in control, and that perhaps her life would now take a new direction and hold some meaning. For some reason, she was excited and could not wait to see what happened next…….
Just a little Halloween teaser to get us started! Please join the Blog Hop tomorrow, October 25, on the blog of
Multiple cards (by myself and others that I watch on YouTube) were pulled today involving the completion of laying and cementing the foundations to our dreams and the plans and measures we have been taking to further our careers and our life purposes. There were also cards pulled several times about abundance and love.
My take on all of this and what I scribbled in my Hello Kitty book as I channeled:
I was feeling a little “unsexy” and having some doubts about things that I don't often doubt anymore this morning. The above cards and messages showed up numerous times as I began my meditations and writing affirmations to turn my frown upside down. One thing that I was told to do was to not only begin my day with a smile, but to really make it a habit to smile at everyone I meet, every single day. This means at family that I see every day as well. I struggle with this type of thing as I am an empath (generally with the public), thus I am highly sensitive to the environment and the people around me and all of the energies that that encompasses. It was only last year (I will be 39 in December – Goddess!) that I learned about and refined my own habits and techniques for keeping out other people's crud. I do not ignore people, and I am not impolite, but I definitely shield myself. How can I do that and smile at every one of them? Well, I am going to do it. I think of how often another's smile helped to change my mindset, especially when I was struggling with many issues and depression. Maybe you can join me for some extra strength energy and we can spread smiles all around?
Trust and love and abundance – The message sent is to remind us that we need to trust, always we need to trust. The love cards, messages, and channel pictures that I saw instructed us to really open our hearts. Does this mean in romance (whether you have a partner or not)? Yes, but it also means in all of our relationships, even work and career. If you are partnered, renew your commitments. Flash that smile that you have been practicing at your honey like you have just seen him/her for the first time again. If you are not partnered, perhaps your twin flame will be drawn to you because you are practicing that great, loving, inviting smile. Love your work partners and your work. Open your heart to being more grounded and lovingly approach your work. Hate your job? Open your heart to receiving guidance towards your true calling. Abundance is already here. Remember my Full Moon channels about this. Look around, open your heart and love to receive all that is good. Acknowledge the abundance that is already there in your life, right now.
Loud and clear: “This is a time for huge shifts and tremendous manifestation. Only speak and think that which you wish TO BE, that wish you wish to make happen.”
I am going to share (some of) the affirmations I wrote for myself before, during, and after this channeling. Feel free to use them in your own journal, and I hope you are inspired to make more:
I am helping people to live their dreams, grow, release hurts, improve, love, and laugh!
I have an infinite flow of abundance and income where my needs and those of my family are continuously met.
I have an open mind and an open heart that flows, gives, and receives love continuously.
I make my family feel loved and comforted.
I am connected with and share with those who can help me in business, and I in turn can help them.
I am continuously connected to Spirit, my Guides, and the Divine Source.
I AM ALWAYS MYSELF, THE REAL ME. I AM ALWAYS A GODDESS! (guys can of course, change the goddess part if they like!)
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
