One Session, Three Surprises! What does Valentine's Day have to do with Bees, the Plague and Love?

In this post I'll share:

  • a story from a recent session that surprised even me

  • a couple of New Year traditions that work at any time of the year

  • an update on my travels with available dates and times and links to book

  • a cool thing that happened with MBOs and one to share that I say daily

  • a head's up on changes coming to my website

  • a surprising tidbit about St. Valentine


A session within the Akashic Records is like a snowflake. It is a snowflake by nature, but each one has a different design. I never know what I am going to get whether my client is new or a regular. Like us, like life, like the planet and all species, we are constantly evolving.

Sessions evolve too.

When these are the cards I draw in the morning, I cannot help but get excited about what the day might hold. These two cards fill me with eager anticipation and foster dreams of what gifts the day might hold for me.

And when I draw cards like this, I generally pause and sigh.... I have to admit, that even sometimes, I feel a little deflated and concerned as I move into the rest of my morning. In my thinking I am wondering what might happen that the Angel of Forgiveness is going to be assisting me today. I am not a negative thinker by any means, yet it does make me wonder will I need to be forgiven for my thoughts and actions or will I need to forgive someone for theirs?

This past Thursday, I drew the two cards pictured above- Forgiveness and Openness. As I prepared for my first call that morning, I was curious why this woman booked 90 minutes, figuring she must have much to discuss. I knew her name, but I couldn't recall what we spoke about 7 years ago. It had been a long time. I thought about my cards and about the session, the Angel of Openness reminding me to stay open, which, I am pretty much always open anyway.

When we started our call, she reminded me of when we spoke those 7 years ago. As soon as she told me whose friend she was and where she lives in California, I remembered her and what we discussed. She said lots had changed and she had been thinking of me. She told me though, what made her actually book the appointment happened about three weeks prior. She had been thinking of booking with me and was coming out of Home Depot and as she approached her car she saw a one dollar bill laying on the ground. She picked it up and laughed thinking about my Dad and how he likes to leave dollar bills for anyone who knows our story. She smiled at the confirmation. A few days later she was speaking with her friend who ended up saying, "You need to get another session with Betsey." And so she did.

I said the prayer and opened her records. Yet things started in a very different way from there. As a matter of fact, three things happened in this call that I cannot remember as ever had happened before. I said, before we begin, I am being directed to tell you that your father is here. And before I could say anything, she said, "Well, is that my biological father or my step father? Oh, or it could me my godfather. they are all there." I said, "No, this is clearly your step father. And, this is rare, but he is asking for permission to come through." I told her I don't recall anyone ever asking permission to come through. I have loved ones who will stand there and not jump in out of respect sometimes, but he wanted through and he wanted permission. She, of course, became very emotional and eventually said he had permission. He walked with a purpose and clear determination and he wanted me to tell her that he was kneeling down in front of her and taking her hands in his. He was placing his forehead onto her forehand and closed his eyes. It was like he was bowing to her in reverence, indicating that this time, her giving him permission to come in, was very sacred and meaningful. All the while, my client is crying and emotional. He told me to tell her that he was sorry. He said he was a broken man. He did not know how to love. He only knew how to hurt. He said he knew that she had forgiven him and yet he knew that did not take the pain and memories away. He told her many things, reasons and explanations, and probably more information than she expected. One of the things he told her was one of the three things I had not experienced before in a session with such laser point clarity. Without going into detail, I'll just say it was about parallel lives and it was mind blowing. I kept telling her to be open to this concept and idea and was in awe myself of what this man was bringing forth. I will write about this one in full detail in my book.

Meeting her stepfather was obviously part of the plan that I was being prepared for that morning when I drew those cards. Those cards weren't for me necessarily, they were for her. The angels of Openness and Forgiveness were letting me know that they'd be a part of one of my sessions that day. It was so powerful to see this so clearly at work and so humbling to grasp the magnificent design of our lives and experiences. Which leads me to the third thing that I have never seen before in a session. At the very end of our call she asked about her mother and grandmother. She just wanted to see if they were around. Both of them were taken way too soon from her and this life and she missed them terribly. What was so wild to see was that they were in fact there and they showed me that they were each on one side of a loom. Together they were weaving a beautiful tapestry. They told me to tell her that as she was living her life here, they were assisting her by creating a design of her life there. They wanted her to understand how much they were helping her and how involved and ultimately how beautiful her life truly is. I have never seen this before and was just amazed that the design here on earth of her life was being woven and designed in spirit. It still is a little hard to understand, yet, as you are reading this, I say, Be Open....

What's funny is that they showed me a sun, a giant sun, that they were weaving into the loom. When I asked if it meant anything to her she said her sister had just given her a gorgeous chenille bedspread for her birthday. It was the yellowish-golden color of the sun and had, coincidentally, a giant sun in the center of it, so it actually lays across the middle of her bed. Ha! So yeah, there are no coincidences. There truly is a plan and we are truly being supported from so many avenues- loved ones, both here and departed, angels, Spirit Guides and more. There is so much more going on than we will probably ever understand with our human minds. Like my mom always said, "When we die, all things will be revealed." I have to say, that is probably true. We are not meant to know everything, yet we are meant to trust and believe in the greater unseen powers around us. When we do believe, it makes living life so much easier and fulfilling.
