I’ve been meaning to do this for some time, so here it is!  Straight from my Camino Journal: Flashback to Day 2. . .


Happy birthday, Rachel!  I will probably always remember that.  Many blessings to you, Rachel.

Today was a bit hellish at the end.  Another monstrous downhill, this time very rocky.  My left foot was a bit sore before today and only got more sore after today’s fiasco.

Had a few conversations in French today –> used Google Translate to communicate with someone who knew just a little more English than I know French (which is barely any!)  We talked about America, music, movies, and a few other things.  I also had a beer with another young lady.  That’s all really to say for now.  I’m a bit tired.

Had a good convo. in Spanish with a biking Spaniard yesterday.  And really like the patata tostada. 🙂  And am really attracted to Romance language speakers.  I think I will start with French this year.  And I will offer myself for Spanish.  For the rest of the year we can speak a language we know already or start knowing or just use the language for a year. (Idea for a language club.)

Had a creepy dream this morning.  Had known about a a car accident.  Had thought it was this crazy guy, (maybe a drunk?)  But when the car door was opened, it was some young woman.  Was disturbing.

Suggested mantra from my coach:

I, Teri, release whatever it is I need to release and accept whatever I need to accept to remember my dreams here and now from this day forward.



As much as I sometimes enjoy structure, I’m feeling the need to morph again.  I will continue to speak on my experiences and observations with communication, but I am starting to throw in other things as well, depending on where inspiration takes me.

We all have questions.  Some are hidden deep within our hearts.  Some we share with the world.  And if we voice them to the spirit world and our inner selves, we will receive answers.  Often they will come in unexpected ways.

Friday I had a visit with a psychic who was highly recommended by a friend as someone who lives and breathes “in spirit.”  I was both nervous and excited the whole week leading up to our visit.  As the appointment got closer I got the same feeling/thought that nagged at me as I was approaching the Camino: “You’re putting too much on this.  You’re building this up way too much.”  And I found this to again be the case.

Just as with the Camino, the visit was exactly what I needed — if not what I expected.  I got my answers, though it took some stretching for me to see them.  What was really neat was that I also unexpectedly got some answers (some the same!) from a phonecall I had been on that same morning with a mastermind accountability partner.  It proved to me that I don’t need to receive information in a particular way to have my “ah ha!” moment.  I need to be awake and aware at all times.  Spirit is listening, and it wants to connect with us and help us on our way.

My main takeaways from this weekend are these:

  1. I have to focus on myself first.  I need to be financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually stable before all other things, if I wish to continue moving forward.  A consistent suggestion has been meditation.  In fact, I’ve heard that suggestion SO many times in the last week, that I jokingly (but maybe seriously!) told a few people that I was now going to meditate if nothing else because the next time someone asked me “Do you meditate?” I was going to be say and emphatic: “Yes!”  (I have meditated the last 3 days straight.)  Yoga was also suggested, and I have successfully practiced yoga for the past 3 days, as well as refocusing my attention on my diet.
  2. I am a “procrastinator.” This has been an interesting one for me.  We have to be very careful with our “I am” statements and watch what we own, do we not?  But I was looking for a possible kick in the pants, and I got one from the spirit world.  It knew just the word to set me off.  I do believe in the power and importance of using affirmative statements, using “I am” in terms of our ideal self, i.e. “I am successful.  I am beautiful.  I am powerful. I am a being of light.”  However, I think it is also important to acknowledge where we are starting from.  Up until that reading I had been procrastinating, but I had been in denial about it.  My excuses had become so convincing that I had allowed them to become my reality.  People need to hear things in different ways for the message to be fully received.  And for me, right now, I need to hear the “You are a procrastinator” message to set me into action.  Is this ideal?  Perhaps not.  But it is what is working for me right now.
  3. “We are one.” This was my mantra over and over again last night in meditation.  I felt on edge this past weekend, and now I realize it was probably because the country was on edge this past weekend.  The part of me that loves drama (Yes, it’s in there, too!) dipped my toes into the muddy waters yesterday, but thankfully, I was able to restrain myself from diving in.  That is not what the world needs right now.  The world needs more calls for unity.  Leaders recognize that division makes us weaker.  This knowledge can be used both for “good” or “ill.” It separates us from the truth that we are all connected, a moving breathing energy entity.   Together we can move mountains.  Separate . . . we start fires.  If conflict is inevitable, then peaceful forces are essential.  Whether a meditator, a mediator, a pray-er, a nature-lover, or all of the above — we need to do the work right now.  We are badly in need of healing.

Are you looking for answers?  Remember, ASK and you shall receive!  I would love to hear where your responses are coming from!

Thank you for all that you do for this world.  I hope you found a little inspiration here today. Much love and many blessings. ❤

I’m throwing myself into the spirit world.  Emotion = motion, and excitement is a powerful, moving force.  The land of clairvoyance, channeling, and angel communication has been calling to me for the past 5 or so years now, and I’m ready to dive in.  I just listened to my last intuitive report again — a health analysis — and a few things stuck out:

  1. The most important thing I can do right now is focus on the light.  There is always light in every situation, always growth, always love, always awareness. . .  as long as I can find the good in every situation, I will continue to step into my “destiny”, as they say I call it.
  2. I must know that I’m always supported.  That is the whole purpose of this log, to recognize this and to use it for my growth.  My report said that I am intimately connected with the angels!  I can write to them if I like, but all I have to do is speak with them, and they will immediately answer.  I get choked up, even typing these words.  Maybe that is one of my purposes this life time — to remember that I am always supported, in every moment — and to share that knowledge with others.

I’d like to leave you with my latest angel number conversation.  I unfortunately do not remember the exact number from yesterday, but I remember feeling frustrated that I kept getting the same messages: focus on the a spiritual career, or on something “meaningful”, and everything else will fall into place.  What exactly does that mean?  Then, finally I got a number combination that simply told me to ask myself: “What can I do to make the world a better place?”  Bingo!  I can work with that!

Let’s change the world!

Much love and many blessings. ❤


I continue to seek a deeper connection with my inner self and what lies beyond.

Angel Numbers

Days are starting to blend together now, but the angel numbers are consistent.  The most prominent one has been 222:

“Trust that everything is working out exactly as it’s supposed to, with Divine blessings for everyone involved.  Let go and have faith.

I’ve seen it almost every day this week.  Besides 222, I’ve continued to see combinations of 3’s and 1’s and 3’s, as well as 7’s, and occasionally 8 combinations.

I’ve received a great sense of peace from reading the book My View from Heaven by Sarina Baptista.  It confirmed that I am indeed receiving messages, and technology is very much a likely conduit for me!

I continue to seek a clearer connection and a clearer vision for my future.  I know I have a mission, but it still feels fuzzy!  When reconnecting with an old friend, she told me about a wonderful psychic/medium who she knows and whose “every breath is from spirit.”  I immediately gave the woman a call, and I can’t wait to meet her!


Maddeningly, it still seems easier for me to help others in deciphering their dreams than it is for me to understand my own.  Maybe dreams are meant to be shared?  I’ve had some interesting ones.  In some I am in a foreign place.  Many of them have involved animals lately, particularly cats.  Last night in particular I remember that I was renting an apartment, and my two cats were staying with me.  I was worried that it wasn’t enough space for them and also that they might have a new life style of partly living outside.

Animal Sightings

I just remembered that the sightings have been up lately.  I’ve had some interesting new ones in the past week: a skunk walking on the sidewalk outside a couple’s shower, a raccoon in the garbage bins at work, a katydid hanging out right in front of our door. (I’ve never seen one before!)  I’ve also continued to see my favorite birds flying overhead: egrets and blue herons.


Sometimes my hands tingle.  I’ve noticed now that sometimes my feet do as well.  I know there are chakras on our hands and feet.  It does feels like energy is moving through them.  Sometimes it feels like healing energy moving out to those who need it.  Sometimes it feels like I’m releasing something I don’t need anymore.


I’ve been eating better but not exercising as much.  Starting today I will restart at least making sure I get a daily one mile walk in again.  At my night job if I don’t have something packed to snack on or “dinner” on, I have some of the peppermints/hershey kisses.  My body was really unhappy with me after last week.  That’s what happens when you start clearing out your body from eating better — it becomes more sensitive and less likely to accept garbage!

Spiritual Practice

I have not kept up a consistent spiritual practice.  This may be why I’m struggling for clarity.  I’ve used the Crystal Healing Bed twice in the last month, and that’s the best meditation I’ve had.  Beyond that I’ve had a few minutes here and there, and I’ve felt the benefit.  I’ve started working with my coach again, but I’m feeling restless and a little lost.


I love that I work with some people who are as wacky as I am. ❤  We’ve been sharing some of our experiences and observations, and it has carried into my dreams a bit.  I’m ready for more messages!  Now I would just like to have a deeper understanding of what they mean. . .

That’s all for now.  Much love and many blessings. ❤

Communications Log Entry 3

Mostly dreams today.  I had two unusual dreams this morning.


In the first I was standing at the entryway to a gated area.  There were 3 deer on the other side.  I decided that if I stayed really still, they might walk right past me.  And they did, they brushed right past me.  As long as there are no deer with antlers, I thought.  Then I saw more deer, and some did have antlers.  They past me as well, and I think at one point one with antlers was facing me after it got to the other side.

I had another dream that I was in a Pirates of the Caribbean-type setting.  In the first part it was murky, and we were walking along the ocean floor.  There were mini-zombie like creatures along the bottom, and I had to watch where I stepped.  At one point I saw a mailbox set of boxes, like ours, like you’d see in an apartment complex or business complex.  Our mailbox slot was open, and all 4 keys were in there, our personal sets and the two keys to open the bigger boxes for bigger packages delivered.

Later in this sequence I was standing near a large ship (ours?) on land, and Barbosa’s ship pulled up.  I was nearly the only one around except for a woman with a young child who was rushing to bring him to safety.  I suddenly thought: “Wait.  This isn’t real.” And knew I could change things. Instantly the scene changed to more of a dress rehearsal.  It was lighter out, and we were all wearing normal clothes like actors not in dress yet.  Some of us walked by each other and greeted each other.

Thoughts on Dreams

What sticks out to me about these dreams are two things:

  1. They near to real-life elements.  Saturday I saw the 3 deer blocking in me in the road.  In this dream, I saw 3 deer again facing me.  Yesterday we had an incident where discovered a delivered package had been stolen.  And I found a mailbox set in my dream with my personal mailbox wide open with keys on display!
  2. The imaginative and almost-lucid nature of the second dream.  As a terrifying and impending doom scenario approaches, I find a way to shut it off entirely and make it harmless. In the past, I may have woken myself up from such a dream.  In this one I either wasn’t fully lucid or decided to stick with it.

In Other News

My fiancee either very unconsciously closed Leia in her crate for the night.  Or someone else did it for us.

I’m still seeing 222, 1’s and 3’s, and 1’s and 7’s.

Have a joyful, blessed day. ❤

Communications Log Entry 2

My second log!  These are already becoming quite long, so feel free to skim, peruse, go to your favorite sections. . .  whatever calls to you.  I hope you find something in here that adds to your life path.  (I’ve gained so much from it already!)


These are a smattering of dreams in the days since my last communication log, mostly in order.

In my last blog I shared a dream about my boss cleaning up water on the bathroom floor.  That same morning, I found myself cleaning up water on my own bathroom floor.

A friend.  I’m pulling a truck into a parking lot.  It looks close.  It looks like I may not be able to do it. There are huge holes in the pavement.  I almost fall into one of them.  Some kind of party but no fun.  Someone goes home early.  Some ladies arrive in the parking lot, one may be one of my friends.  One has just received an award for creating something. Large semi on the side of the road.  I’m standing by it.  Alone.

I dreamt I was at a school for black women.  I was entering with another woman who was black.  I was going into the office to talk with the principal.

I dreamt I was in a room with 2 other people and a figure of authority.  The authority figure asked what other languages we speak.  The other 2 were shaking their heads (no other languages), and I kept repeating: “Yo hablo espanol.  Yo hablo espanol.”

I dreamt that Leia (our dog) got out of her bed, and I noticed kittens.  LOTS of kittens in our closet.  There was also an adult cat, and when Brian told me that we were taking them in, I got really upset, especially when I learned the adult male wasn’t neutered.  There was also an older guy coming out of the bathroom, naked from the waist down.

There’s dancing and alcohol offered.  I declined.  I love celebrating, and I think there are little dolls that come alive, including a dancing girl.

There are pictures on display on the computer or something that I’m trying to show, but they’re all swimsuit or partially naked pictures, including a maybe topless friend of mine.  I’m not sure where I got them from, and I think I close the laptop or shut down the computer.


Now that I have my full attention on angel numbers, I have been seeing angel numbers like crazy, all kind of combinations.  But the ones I have seen the most are combinations of 1’s and 3’s, multiple 7’s, 222 (a very comforting number to “let go and trust”), 555, 1’s and 9’s, and combinations of 1’s and 7’s.

Yesterday I got quite a few 7’s and even got a 777!  This is a very auspicious number and affirms that you are on the right track on your life path. Some hours after seeing this number, I purchased the Hay House World Psychic Summit (mentioned again below), which was $77.

My absolute favorite number experience this week so far has been with 1’s and 3’s.  One night last week I was driving home late and was talking with my fiancee on the phone.  It was pitch black out, and I remembered having to stop for an ambulance, thinking it was odd that this was the 2nd night in a row that there had been an ambulance in about the same spot.  I commented this to my fiancee, saying: “I can’t believe this is the 2nd ambulance in a row at (looking down at the clock). . . at 3:13pm . . . at night. . .” 

Quick Back Story:

My car radio has been quirky for probably 6-8 years now. (My car is 13 years old!)  The car radio would sometimes go out, the CD player would randomly stop working, and the digital time would sometimes go haywire.  I mentioned it to the dealership once when I brought it in, and when he told me it would be best to get a whole new setup . . . I decided I would just deal with the quirkiness!

Most of the time everything functions fine, but occasionally it will go crazy on me again.  I used to just pass it off as part of the ups and downs of technology.  But now I know more about angel communication and also that I actually personally affect technology (a story for another time).  So. . .  I pay more attention to these “coincidences” now.

I told him about the weird clock glitch, and when I hung up and looked back down at the clock again it said 9:18 pm — back to normal.  The next night I was closing up the crystal bed at work, my first time, and I happened to look down at the radio clock (playing soft music for those in the healing sessions).  Apparently this clock has issues, too.  It was fluctuating between an odd assortment of lines, and. . .  Can you guess?  . . .  3:13. Apparently that is my message for the week, so here’s what it means (From Doreen Virtue’s angel numbers book):

“Lean upon the positive and love of the energies of the Ascended Masters who surround you right now, as they are lifting your thoughts to higher levels of happy living.”


I’ve added this category since last time because I’ve had quite a few new animal sightings since I’ve been paying more attention to my surroundings!

  • Saw an egret and blue heron in two different locations flying overhead within an hour or two of each other.  (These are my special birds.)
  • Saw what looked like a stork! It was standing in a farm field that was filled with bales of hay.
  • Found an oddly beautifully bright green shiny, beetle-like bug on my blouse — in the house!
  • Turned the wrong way down a road, and as GPS corrected me and redirected my course, I turned onto a road with 3 deer standing in the middle of the road!
  • Saw a skunk.


QUESTION: “How can I learn to read the akasha myself?”/”I’d really like to develop my psychic abilities!”

ANSWER 1: Starting this communications log.

Source: My coach and my intuition

ANSWER 2: Potential teacher.  A woman at a workshop where I presented gave her 45-second elevator pitch and also gave a glowing review of her teacher, a metaphysical woman who has been popping in and out of my mind and life for a few years.

Source: participant at mini-Vision Workshop

ANSWER 3: Theosofest (Which turned into a seminar on silence and stillness and a Numerology Reading)

Source: My boss at work suggested it!

ANSWER 4: The Hay House World Psychic Summit   I purchased the recordings as a birthday present to myself.  It can also be listened to free for a limited time.

The beauty of these answers is that the 2nd two came the same day or day after asking the question out loud!


I was feeling pretty good about my health until today.  I was eating pretty well (mostly home-cooked food) and had pretty much been walking at least once daily, with a new occasional practices of weight-lifting (guided by my fiancee, a health coach and personal trainer).

However, I have noticed that I can fall apart a bit at functions with friends and family. Last night I was at a great party and had foods and drink that I don’t have too often and even purposely avoid.  If the food becomes available to me, it can become an obsession for me.  I feel I have to have it!  Today I am paying for it.  I was woken in the middle of the night, and then pains in my stomach kept me from falling back asleep.

I don’t have a clear solution for this yet, but I think I may start limiting what I choose to eat when I’m out, and I may also start eating at home before events so that I don’t come in really hungry.


I’ve been thinking a lot about religion and have recently felt that I must have some purpose in healing the wounds that have been created through mankind’s search to understand spirituality (and also sometimes through outright abuse of power and authority!)

Some time ago I was looking at my collection of spiritual texts and regretted that one text was clearing missing.  I had the Bible (which also includes the Torah in the Old Testament), the Tao te Ching (Wayne Dyer translation), the I Ching, the Dhammapada (Buddhist text), the Bhagavad Gita (part of the Upanishads and a Hindu text), and various spiritual texts from the School of Metaphysics.  The text I was missing was the Koran (Muslim text), and I didn’t believe I would get it because I had heard that it is not translated into English.  (And please let me know if there are other texts that you think I might add to my collection!)  Lo and behold, today at Theosofest, a young man was handing out free copies of an English version of the Koran! I was so grateful!  I don’t remember when I first expressed this wish to the universe, but I have received my answer.


I’ve been reading a bit more of My View from Heaven: A Boy’s Story of His Journey to Heaven and the Purpose of Life on Earth. By Sarina Baptista.  I have found a new sense of comfort from the boy’s story.  He has been confirming the value of the work I am doing with this Communications Log project by sharing what he and other spirit guides and angels do to get our attention! (Confirmation from the other side!)

“A Note: when you receive messages over and over, it is us, your loved ones and your guides trying to direct you or move you.  We want you to be successful and do what you came to Earth to do.  Listen more and follow our instructions. Let us guide you because we really can see so much more than you. . . .  Be open to receive signs and messages from us and you will see how we are guiding you.  Many times it is the simple things like my mother experienced — names coming up on a Google search. . . We also use bumper stickers, songs, animals, the clouds, birds, coins, and especially other people to bring messages to you.  We want you to know how close we are and how much we love you.  As you are reading this, tune in to the energy around you because I can guarantee your guides and loved ones are with you right now as you read this.  Maybe it’s time to stop and say, “Hi!”


  • I’ve had the thought of “Bringing Heaven to Earth.”  It has popped up in my head a few times.  I’ve briefly considered it as a mission statement but brushed it off.  Then today in the numerology session for a family member, Phillip Clark used those words: “You are to bring heaven to Earth.”  I knew that message was for me as well!
  • I was driving in the car to work this morning and thinking about how many of the angel numbers I’ve seen in the past few months have been telling me “not to worry, everything is going to work out, keep positive, etc.”  Just as I finished thinking this, I looked up and saw a roadside ad for State Farm that said “No worries.”
  • I’ve had two people honk at me recently for no conceivable reason.  (I’ve also had a person or two honk at me for good reason!)  One pulled up next to me and smiled at me.  He looked to be about 18.  This has never happened to me before.
  • Saw a lighthouse on the back of a truck.  (One of my symbols as the “illuminator.”)
  • Mishaps with technology and such happening around me.  Trouble with a flyer and unexpected absences as the workshop.
  • I saw an ambulance 3 days in a row.  The first 2 were at night at around the same time and in the same area.
  • I found my favorite parking place open at one of my work places.
  • I found myself in a tense situation at work and focused on my healing presence, bringing myself to a peaceful state and putting myself in the other person’s shoes.  I felt a difference in my surroundings and also later with that person.
  • My sister can sometimes either read my mind or has really good hearing.  I think it’s both.  And also my fiancee, too.

If you start your own communications log, please share in the comments below.  I would love to share in your journey of discovery, too! 

Much love and many blessings. ❤

Communications Log Entry 1

In the health center where I work they keep a communications log so that the owner, therapists, and office staff can all communicate quickly with each other and have an easy record of the responses.  I’ve decided to create my own log.  

Yesterday I had a session with my coach, relaying my frustration that I didn’t feel as connected to my intuition, angels, and other guides as I knew I had the ability to do.  (I’d done it in past lives!)  Part of me felt that maybe the timing wasn’t right.  But part of me also felt that I wasn’t giving it the attention it required.  If I really wanted this badly . . . didn’t it need a little more love and focus?

She asked me to implement 3 things.  For multiple days, but at least for one day.  I’m going to shoot for 60.  This will be a combination of many things: a log of dreams, intuitive happenings, animal symbols, and angel numbers.  It will be a record of questions I’ve asked and answers I’ve received.  

So, here we go, starting with yesterday/this morning:


This morning I dreamt I was running from someone.  I believe he was Asian, and perhaps a martial artist.  In one of the first sections of the dream I was hiding in a side room with my sister.  My parents were in the other room, perhaps as a gatekeeper.  I didn’t see it, but I understood that my parents were later killed.  Again, I was running from this man, and perhaps a gang of people.  I quickly ducked into a restaurant (not sure if my sister was with me) and the owner hid me in the back, possibly among some very large pots/cauldrons.  I think they came in looking, but I can’t remember.  At the end I was in a room with a friend, probably her house.  We were standing at the counter and there was a telephone.  When we picked up the phone we got a strange voice.  At first it sounded like it was the Asian man talking with us, but then it seemed like it was a recorded message. I had the feeling we were now trapped in this place.

I also had a dream that I was in a bathroom with my current employer, and she was cleaning up some water on the floor, saying that it had come from the place of my fiancees previous employer.

Finally, I remember a dream sequence where I was rolling around laughing on the floor twice.  Once was after I’d been shown a picture of something, I think of someone, on someone’s phone.

Yesterday I dreamt something about improv.  I remember doing quite a bit of it.  At one point I believe I was making swimming motions.  I remember people being attracted to me, coming toward me.  (I must have been good at it!)


The gas pump stopped early for some reason.  I didn’t realize until I was back driving again that the car was only 3/4 full.  I looked at the price and total gallons and then decided to look up these numbers in Doreen Virtue’s angel number book:


Your manifestation practices are working.  Keep visualizing and affirming abundance.


Your positive affirmations about your career and finances are working, so keep going.


Your life purpose is the answer to your prayers about money.  Devote yourself to service that involves your natural talents and interests, and you’ll be fully supported in return.

Other angel numbers that popped up, to see if they repeat: 45, 111, 77.


Question: I wonder how I can better connect with myself and my guides?

Answer: Reach out to them, experiment, and log your experiences.

Question: My friend/colleague is reaching out, and I don’t feel I can support her in the way she is asking.  How else can I help?

Answer: Ask her how else you can help.

  • I had some computer challenges yesterday.  The computer froze up at the office at least twice. (Was it me?)
  • I noticed a repeat of some of the names on the scheduler.  (Twice there were back-to-back clients who shared the same name.)
  • Quite a bit of head buzzing (overhead and forehead, where the 3rd eye is.)
  • This morning I could have sworn the dishrack was full. I planned to ask Brian to clear it.  But when I was on the phone this morning talking with him about other things, I looked over, and it was clear.  He had cleared it the night before.
  • Driving home, late at night, for the first half of the drive I hit mostly red lights.  (For the 2nd half I decided to stop paying attention to it.)
  • A tutoring student who I hadn’t heard from in a while reconnected with me yesterday evening.  I had been thinking about him that morning.
  • It is currently 8:18 as I’m typing this.
  • I had the inclination I needed to stay in the right lane.  That turned out to be the best move.


  • I have read up to chapter 3 of Crossing Over by John Edward.
  • I recently purchased My View from Heaven: A Boy’s Story of His Journey to Heaven and the Purpose of Life on Earth. By Sarina Baptista


  • I recently became an official volunteer for Joliet Hospice.  I have now completed two visits to a nearby senior living community.
  • I have found my attention being drawn to graveyards for the past year.  This past week I had a lovely birthday breakfast with my dad, and as we are walking, we decided to stop in the local one and discovered some very old, very fascinating grave markers that dated back to Civil War times!

This feels like a study!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I already am!  Feel free to join in the fun!

Much love and many blessings. ❤
