Our Existence

ExistenceThis morning in meditation I heard the words, “you know why you are here.”   Sometimes we are here in our earthly bodies and we enjoy our experience.  At other times, we might feel like we are going through the motions of life without direction or aim.  Yet, if we stop and think about it all, we know why we are here.   Somewhere in our core, our heart is hearing a call from God to fulfill our purpose.  Each and every one of us have a job to complete while we are here but many of us get distracted by life and forget.  The chaos around us can pull us off our path until something happens to help us “remember” who we are and what we are about.

Distracting us from our path is easy.  We have so many gadgets and so many material goals in life, we can often forget what is really important.   If Satan exists, He is there tempting us with “stuff” every moment of our lives.  Once we get those “things”, we often look for the bigger and better version.  Though we think we are pursing happiness, being distracted takes us further away from our inner peace.  How distracted are we? Where do we place our priorities?  Do we think of God and what he wants us to do?  Do we think of how we can help other people?  Do we spend time praying and asking God to bring peace to our world?  Do we give back? Is it in our consciousness every day that we have things we can do to help, even if they are small gestures?

Truthfully, we are all here to help and it is apparent that  the world really needs it.  As a whole, we don’t take very good care of the planet or of each other.   There is no shortage of things for us to do to help.   We are needed in abundance.  When people ask, “What is my purpose?”  The answer is to help whatever way we can.  It may be a vocation or it just may be our way of life.   There isn’t always a defined answer but it can become more defined the more we work toward giving back to God.  The more we do, the more the opportunities for helping will open up to us.

Remember, our existence here is about us.  It is not about “you”.  The more we think of how we can help others, the more we become content with being whoever we are.  We begin to develop a new sense of self.  We get the benefits of being strongly connected to God and of living a God centered life.   We have focus and we know each day is an opportunity to fulfill what we are supposed to do while we are here.  We know this already but sometimes we forget.  Now is a good time to remember.

Each day ask God to plan your day for you.  Ask Him where you can be of help.  Then be conscious of the opportunities in front of you.   Are you being asked to listen to someone who needs support?  Are you being ask to pray for God’s angels to help others?  Are you being asked to use your skills to do something greater?  Ask and the answers will come.  As with most things, it is important to stay in today and do what is put in front of you.  The rest will develop naturally as it is intended to be.© May 4, 2014, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

When Angels Sing

angels4I first want to start this post by letting you know I’m not a very musically inclined person.  I listen to the top 40 but can’t remember the names of songs or lyrics.  I have some sort of mental block when it comes to music.  When I’m doing readings I sometimes hear angels singing in the background which indicates to me the loved one I am talking to is in a beautiful place.  At other times,  I will hear bits of lyrics in my head.  They can be very random but what I pay attention to is the line or phrase I hear most prominently.  The song itself may carry greater meaning so I always tell people to look it up.  There is usually a message within the lyrics from loved ones either confirming where they are, how they feel or conveying a something they want you to know.

The last two days I have been singing Ava Maria in my head.  When I looked up the meaning of the song it is the Hail Mary prayer put into song.   For Catholics, we recognize that Mother Mary is a loving spirit who often intervenes for us when we are in need.  She often appears to me when I am reading for another Catholic person and I am often able to see their connection to that belief system through her.   My interpretation of hearing that song is that I am to recognize she is watching over me in the same way she does for many others.

As I composed this message in my head, another song started going through my mind.  It was Whitney Houston’s song, I Will Always Love You.  When my father passed,  I saw him in meditation and one of the first things I heard was that song.  A while later my friend Karen died and she came to me in a dream.  Karen gave me a hug and sang that same song to me.  They wanted to reassure me of their love.  The reassurance was there again this morning in that song and it is music to my heart.

If you hear a song in your head or songs pop up on the radio that remind you of your loved ones, it is likely a sign from them that they are around.  They communicate in a multiple of ways and music is one of the easier ways for them to convey messages.  When you hear a song with special meaning, try to acknowledge the message and the meaning behind it.  Your loved ones will be encouraged to continue sending music to your ears to help sooth the  wounds in your heart.  ©October 9, 2013, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Love Never Dies

CherishedPeople come into our lives for a reason and a season.  Sometimes their time with us is long and for others it is short.  We have the gift of connecting with those we love without knowing how long we will get to keep the connection. Cherish the moments you have and when they are gone, you will have those loving memories to help you through.  Even those times that were hard will carry new meaning for you because of the love underlying your relationship.  Always remember, that love between you never dies and they will always feel how much you care. Your love is the link that keeps you connected even as they move on to the other side.  ©September 21, 2013, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

We are More Connected than We Think

Grace1Our reality is always touching  Heaven’s.    For many, the idea of heaven and other dimensions in the Universe is a question and still needs to be explored.  It can be easy to let doubt block you from having a spiritual connection to your loved ones.  When we lose people we love, our grief and anger can also create a barrier to perceiving our loved ones and recognizing our connection to God. For those that want to connect, it is important to be open to seeking a connection through dedication and practice.  Those connections are most often experienced through  meditation, prayer, dreams and through spiritual experiences.  When you start to deepen your spiritual connection,  you realize your loved ones are not as separate as you may have thought.  Connecting to God and your loved one can  happen in many ways and in multiple layers.  When you allow yourself to be open to  that connection, you  recognize that your loved ones are not as far away as you thought because their reality is always touching ours. © September 20, 2013, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Glimpses of Heaven

heavenWe only have to sit overlooking the water or on a majestic mountain top to glimpse the serenity of Heaven.   Many of us get busy and forget to enjoy the quiet and beauty of nature but it is one of our strongest connections to the other side.  The peace and quiet we find there is a reflection of what our loved ones feel.  Though Heaven is so much more, deceased loved ones often show me a similar scene to the one in the picture as a way of letting me know they are in a loving place.  If you imagine your most favorite place in nature with a little shimmer and the qualities of peace and love reflected in it, you are seeing a snapshot of  what it is like for those you love.   © September 2013, Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Are you Really There?

Grief3We often don’t recognize when our loved ones are near.  They send us little signals that we can easily misinterpret or miss.  A loved one will try to get your attention by putting their memories in the front of your mind.  You may see a quick image of their face or think about things you did together.  If that happens, you are likely sensing their spiritual presence.  Those memories and images may make you feel sad but they can also give you hope that your loved one is watching over you and sending you signals to get your attention.   Acknowledge that you think they are there. This will likely encourage more of the same experiences as they visit you. It can be healing to know that you haven’t lost your relationship with them, it has just changed…   © August 2013 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC

Lean on Me: Gemma’s Signs from Her Son

From Gemma:
Rose On Wood BWAfter lengthy research on the web and asking questions around to people I know, I found Nancy Hickman.  We met with her and it was very good and this sent me in search of my connection to my faith.    Different things came up and a class that Nancy was teaching peeked my interest.  I was just one part of the class.  I was uneasy but brave.  I wasn’t sure if it was for me, but for some reason I was prompted to keep going.  It turned me around and helped me find what I really had not lost at all.  The best thing was, at the end of the class, Nancy gave all of us a channeled message from our loved ones in heaven.  This was the beginning of my Lean on Me story.  My message was from my son Dave Nelson, he sang the song Lean on Me to Nancy and asked that she sing it to me (she did great) and that I read the lyrics.  Another part of the message was an image of a red rose.  My youngest son Mike pulled up  the lyrics and the album cover has a red rose laying there.  Then David gave more signs.  The next day Nancy contacted me to look at what came up on God vines that morning for her. It was a young boy with autism singing Lean On Me.  It was beautiful.  Several months later, my cell phone started playing the song Lean On Me and two of us could not turn it off until finally my son Mike was able to turn it off.  Within the hour I received a email from American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  When I opened it,  they had dedicated a song for a singer that died from suicide.  When I clicked on it, you are right: it was  Lean On Me.

Whispered Words

From the time I was a little girl, I got messages from spirit.  I would sit in wind2a field on our property and hear thoughts in my head offering love and support.   They were like words whispered in the wind.  Always kind and loving.

We all hear these loving words from time to time.  Some of us just don’t always  recognize that inner voice is not always our own.  Loved ones will put thoughts in our head to help and reassure us but we might not always perceive those thoughts as from them.   They may be the thought in our head that tells us not to go somewhere at a certain time.  Then we find out there was an accident in that spot that evening.  They may tell us a relationship is turning unhealthy or to be cautious of someone.  Those little warnings and gut feelings are a gift from your loved ones.  Their way of watching over us  to try to positively influence our thinking.

Sitting in that field, I was quiet and open to listening.  That made it  easier for me to hear.  We are more likely to hear their messages if we allow ourselves to be quiet and clear our head of worries.    The words whispered to me have definitely prevented accidents, provided me with health information, warned me that my kids needed me and more.  What have you heard from your loved ones when you take the time to quiet your mind and listen?

Spirit communication

This morning in meditation I was shown a picture of two things.  One image was a telegraph machine and the other was an image of my husband showing me how he used to communicate as a signalman in the military.  The message was, “be aware of what your thoughts communicate to the other-side.  When you think it, it puts out a signal into the Universe.”


The reason some people are able to receive communication from the other side is because they are able to tap into the frequency in which those that have passed communicate.  Sometimes that communication is literal and at other times it comes symbolically like a type of code.  One of the key tools for being able to communicate with spirit is the ability to quiet the mind.  When the mind is quiet, your brain waves actually slow down and that allows you to perceive things you might not otherwise pick up on.
Each spirit communicates differently.  The personality of the spirit and their “strength” often impact how clearly they communicate and how talkative they are.  When they communicate with us, they often send thoughts or mental pictures.  It is important to know that they also have to learn how to get their message across to us in a way we can understand.  It may be harder for some to receive messages if they are experience heavy feelings like grief or if they have issues with ill health.  Those can create a fog in the mind that blocks your intuition.  Be aware that whatever your thoughts or feelings are, your loved ones are able to perceive them.  Your loving thoughts send out a signal they can easily perceive.  © 2013 Nancy Hickman, M.Ed., LLC
