My guide John & my friend Tarot
My most vivid and profound experience with John my spirit guide happened during a crisis. My dog, companion and friend Tarot whom I adored, was in medical distress. She was vomiting, shaking, and panting. I scooped her in my arms, took her to my car and we raced to the Emergency Veterinary Clinic minutes away. Tears streaming down my face, and fear enveloped me, I started to frantically scream out loud.
I shouted at the top of my lungs, "Is Tarot going to like the veterinarian?" I heard a quick response when a male voice replied, "Yes." I thought, this can't be real, I had only heard my guide briefly, not like this, not this loud. I yelled again "If you know so much, are they male or female?" The voice responded, "He is male and you will both like him." We arrived, and met the male veterinarian, who was wonderfully gentle and kind. I was in the hospital room with Tarot and the doctor was speaking to me as I continued my conversation in my head with John. I asked, "If you know so much, what is wrong with her?" John answered once again, "It's in her intestines, she will be okay." Tests were run. She needed surgery to remove a blockage in her intestines, just as John had said. She recovered over the next few months.
I will never forget how John jumped in during the crisis. He still remains sarcastic and we don't have an ongoing dialogue as some people ask. I don't discuss politics or have lengthy discussions with him about the other side. I connect with him for small things, which I now find amusing, just to irritate him. I'll ask him where are my car keys and he responds, "Seriously?". I say, "Yeah, seriously." John responds, "On your dresser." I find them, hop in my car off to another adventure or just to get groceries, you never know with my crazy life.
This blog is dedicated to my loveable companion and deeply missed dog, Tarot Jan 5, 2004-Feb 10, 2014.
I hope you continue to follow me wherever I go in this life and the next.
All my love always,
Proof not just another brief visit
I was becoming tired of my relentless pursuit of an unattainable goal, to meet my spirit guide. When I gave readings, periodically I would hear John, telepathically, he would make fun of my reading right in the middle of it!! I couldn't believe that this great guide was mocking my work!! Wasn't he there to help me? Wasn't he there to show me the way? I was so angry and upset, but I couldn't let my client know that John was being so difficult. He would tell me to ask my client questions. I refused.
He would interrupt me to tell me how to approach a reading and I would shut him down.
Then I had a moment of revelation, John was using sarcasm and my sense of humor to get my attention, to show me how to change my focus. It took me ages to figure this out. I would tell my mentors and they thought that John wasn't my guide, that he couldn't possibly be an enlightened spirit from the other side. He was and still is to this day my most helpful and sarcastic guide EVER. He knew that I needed someone similar to my character to get past my barriers of disbelief.
John would continue to interrupt my sessions with my clients, but I had started to incorporate his suggestions. He was teaching me how to make the process of connecting easier. I was always surprised by his direction but now, after years of getting entangled in my emotions I was finally listening to him. I still have to have the last word.

Spirit Guides and the like....
I had been introduced to the concept of Spirit Guides years ago, but never put any energy into it. It was another theory that didn't resonate with me at the time.
Over the years, during my search to understand my experiences I have met many teachers. I have studied in Canada, England, Spain and the United States.
A friend would often introduce me to various types of exercises said that I should try to develop a connection with my guides. I found them to be obtrusive, unbelievable and unnecesary. I wanted a direct and simple way, nothing else to deter me from my truth. I practiced visualizations, trying to SEE my guides. I tried meditation, countless ones to introduce myself to my guides without results. It was frustrating, yet any teacher I had met insisted that I meet my guides to work with them, creating a go-between or a so-called gate keeper to the other world. It didn't work. As you have observed throughout my blogs, I gave up. According to me Spirit guides didn't exist!! I moved on, briefly, because deep down I couldn't give up on something that could assist me in my career.
When I met Jackie and Christine the mediums from the television show, I was introduced to my guide John Green. The original connection we made was weak, and I didn't find him helpful. He needed to answer all of my questions, explain to me why my life was like this and he didn't respond, at all. I saw him on occasion, and I discovered that he would change his clothing to make me laugh and to get my attention. We hadn't bonded, as required, according to my spiritual teachers. I was annoyed with him. He didn't do, or say what I thought he should, or appear the way I thought he should, which was my biggest mistake and my greatest asset.
Ursula has been a medium since she was a child and enjoys sharing her experiences!
