Weekly Inspiration from Colette: What I’ve Learned About Life From the Dead

World-renowned Oracle and Intuitive Expert, Colette Baron-Reid, joins us weekly to share inspiration and guidance for the days ahead.

I’m just back from my last live event for 2014 held in NYC where I was invited to present a live in person Messages from Spirit experience to an audience that included people who flew in from all over the USA as well as from Canada, Bermuda, and The UK for the evening.

I’m in a typical state of exhaustion as I am after most events and am pondering the messages that I was given to deliver with gratitude and a few giggles.

I’m not the most graceful medium, naturally defying traditional delivery and although the results are often deeply moving and poignant, I can still find myself bumbling while trying to piece together the puzzle of who belongs to whom, sometimes mixing up the details with hilarious results.

I love to recall the story of so reverently delivering a reading to a woman once that I thought was coming from her grandmother Lily (who in my mind and intuitive translation was clearly showing herself a lovable roly poly high strung small woman in a fur coat) yet who turned out to actually be a hamster named Lily.

At the NYC event I had a few more mistaken identities that eventually got sorted in the end that also made for some good comedy.

One thing for certain the dead have not lost their sense of humor.

I’ve learned so much about life from the dead.

So in tribute to those passed who visited myself and loved ones in NYC here’s the reminder for us all for this holiday season.

You can’t change the past but you can rewrite it with compassion and understanding.

Perspective is everything.

If we live in the past we set ourselves up for failure in the future.

We’re all wounded and in prisons of our old stories but we also have a key and the door’s not locked anyway.

Forgiveness is freedom.

Compassion, and understanding and kindness heal self and others.

We are never alone.

Life loves us.

Follow your bliss and trust the outcome.

Live each day as if it were the most important day of your life.

Trust the Invisible/ trust God.

Synchronicity is God working anonymously.

Pay attention.

Love is the answer- the only answer.

May this week be calm, and peaceful, soft and sparkly if not in the conditions of your life, then in your heart.
