Mary Jo, words cannot describe what you have done for me. You and your work have literally saved me in more ways than one. After my accident I became more open to God, the universe, and the many helpers we have on the other side. I first came to you for a reading as a medium, nothing more, just to see if any one of my lost loved ones had anything to say. I had no clue of the path that I would take as a result of that meeting. Although it was a wonderful experience to hear from my father, sister, and stepson again, that portion of the meeting was NOT what I thought of on the ride home, or the next year for that matter.
You started the meeting by telling me my life history. You gave specific dates and situations I was in during those times, along with reasons as to why I went through them. I found myself starting to think back to those times and could not get over how accurate you were. But in doing that, I had to relive those times all over again. As hard as it was to feel those pains, it was also therapeutic as I went through that self realization and acceptance. I could not get over how much pain I completely erased from my memory. There was still much more blocked out, but I felt I was on the right track of forgiveness, not only in forgiving others, but myself especially.
Even though this was healing for me, I felt even more lost somehow. I made another appointment with you. I couldn't afford it at the time, but I also felt I couldn't afford not to either. On the way to my appointment I felt guilty for spending money I did not have at the time, but still felt compelled to go forward. So I decided that would be our last meeting unless "God gave me a sign" at our meeting that I was on the right track.
You probably don't remember this, but at the end of our session you told me about a class you were starting up twice a month and thought it might benefit me. I looked at you and immediately thought; "Is this my sign?" But, then I thought this could NOT be my sign because God knows I cannot afford this right now. So I thanked you but said I couldn't afford it right now. Without hesitation you looked at me and said; "Please come. I'll give you the first six sessions at no cost because I really believe this would benefit you." Needless to say I was speechless.
This could not have come at a better time as I had not realized how desperate my life had become. The universe knew it more than I did! When the three months were coming to a close, I casually mentioned to my sister that I was upset about not being able to continue in the classes due to finances. Without a thought, she said; "Denise, I know you have given me thousands of dollars when I was broke over the years. Now I can afford to help you, please let me pay for your sessions until you get on your feet!" I knew this was God's way of giving me another sign.
I am now on my feet again. Not just financially, but also spiritually and it was through you that I got there. You might be a medium and a psychic, but that it not why I am in your classes. When people ask me who you are, I tell them you are my spiritual advisor/teacher. God led me to you because he knew you would save my life.
I could not tell you how many times the ONLY hope I had, that kept me going, was knowing there was another meeting with you and your Guides. It was encouraging to know that there were loved ones out there who cared deeply about my well being, about my self worth, about my being worth every moment they struggle to get me to hear my inner voice, and know that my inner voice wants nothing but my true happiness.
Your meetings have not only made my relationship with God a closer one, but helped me to know myself better and like myself more. They have given me hope, a sense of peace, and knowing that no matter how many times I fall, I am worth getting back up again. We are all God's children and he/she EXPECTS us to spill our milk every now and then. It's not that we spill it, but how we clean it up - that matters.
Mary Jo, you have been my mentor. I can never express all that you have given me, as the list is still growing. Please know that when ours paths eventually part and you have a moment one day contemplating why you are going through this, or questioning the worth of it, KNOW that there was one little lost birdie that found her way home thanks to you. I am sure there are others out there that feel the same as I do. You are a wonderful gift from God...
