She Embraces the Gift of the Deer

She Embraces the Gift of the Deer

by Connie Cole


A string of abusive relationships had left me shattered; low self-esteem and negative self-talk had been my companions for many years. Although participation in a spiritual community had helped alleviate much of the negativity, the same old issues lingered under the surface.


After moping around the house and spending way too much time in that negative head space, I decided to go for a drive. The least I could do for myself was to enjoy the beauty of Austin’s hills on this sunny day.


I felt drawn to drive on Bee Cave Road, to enjoy its winding curves and the beautiful scenery of the Texas hill country; to feel connected to the land and the beauty of the earth.


As I drove, I noticed along the road that a deer had been hit by a car and apparently had died quite recently. I acknowledged its presence with a small prayer and kept driving.


Suddenly, I heard a Voice say, “Go back and pick up that deer.”



Connie then finds herself doing many unexpected things as she listens to the Voice with surrender and courage. Continue reading to see how this amazing day in Connie's life unfolds in memorable, magical ways.

She Awakens to Her Soul’s Talents

by Lorraine Paul


"If you had told me that two well-groomed eyebrows would lead to the final realization that my marriage of 19 years was over, I would have thought you were absolutely nuts.


But as I sat at dinner with my husband, the waiter standing at our table had the most incredible eyebrows - and I could hear his thoughts.


My husband turned to me, dismay and confusion on his face. “Why did you start talking about the guy’s eyebrows?”


I was surprised. “He clearly said he shouldn’t have waxed his eyebrows and I tried to reassure him. I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong with that!”


“You’re crazy!” My husband looked away, shaking his head in disgust at me.


I realized I had heard the waiter telepathically, yet the waiter didn’t look at me like I was crazy.


More unsettling to me though, was that my husband and I were on opposite sides of the table on an issue yet again.


I made it through the rest of that meal with a soft veil of tears that came from years of hurt and humiliation. I decided then and there that I would not suffer through any more years of heartache, scorn, and disrespect with this man."


As her story unfolds, Lorraine shares how she grew spiritually in a number of ways that revealed how she and her husband were moving in very different directions. She was ready to claim more of her soul talents by opening up to angels, numerology, Reiki, and deeper soul guidance as she stepped forward into a new, truer life.

She Begins Hearing Her Soul

She Begins Hearing Her Soul

by Isabella Aponte 


“I attended an all-girls Catholic High School in Philadelphia. We wore maroon jumpsuits that were forbidden to rise above the knee.


My mom is a devout Catholic with a large portrait of the Virgin Mary hanging in our dining room; crosses hung above every door. My father’s mentor and role model was a Catholic priest. Not only did I have to confess my sins to Father George on a weekly basis, but I was also scolded if I ever missed church or even showed up late.


I was not given any option on what to believe or how to live my life, other than the teachings of the Catholic Church; it was the religion of my family, and therefore my religion, as well.


Even after spending eight years at a Catholic elementary school, I still had so many unanswered questions.


What if I wasn’t sure what I believed exactly?

Why were my doubts met with reprimands as opposed to information?


I remember going home after an especially hard day in religion class and telling my parents that I was unsure if I really wanted to be a Catholic.


While they were extremely disappointed, they were more baffled than anything. They never expected me or my sisters to question their lifelong beliefs.


What I really wanted was just to have options in what I learned about life, options about what I believed, and options on how I lived my life.”


As her story unfolds, Isabella discovers hearing her soul for the first time as she moves to different cities and begins to ask deeper questions about her path.

She Unmasks Her Inner Magic

She Unmasks Her Inner Magic

by Hydee Hall 



“I spent a great deal of time alone as a child.


I had no brothers or sisters growing up, and I was a latchkey kid with two parents who worked very long hours.


Yet I always "felt" I had something around me. I knew I was not alone, and it was this feeling that gave me the comfort and love that I needed throughout my life to survive. I was born depressed, hungry for joy, and looking for a way not to drown in pain.


During especially difficult times, I would go outside, look at the trees, and feel their presence in my heart.


Like magic, I would feel the company of “something” letting me know it was okay and I was not alone.


It also helped immensely to have a pet dog. Her devoted presence soothed me as she listened to my words and my silence. She was not only my best friend, but the only one in my life who gave me unconditional love.


I will never forget the date. On April 1st, 2008, a “Spirit On Site” (or what I like to call an SOS) came through for me for the first time.”


Hydee continues to share her journey of unmasking her fake selves in order to truly find and love her real self and inner child.


Learn how she does that in our book so you can ensure you are living an authentic, compassionate life as well!

She Finds Her Connection to the Universe

She Finds Her Connection to the Universe

by Tamara Plant


“The first time I tapped into the Universe and planted the seeds of intention, I had no idea that I was tapping into the Universe and planting seeds of any kind. I was 20 years old and had just been politely asked to leave college in the third semester of a four semester journalism program.


It might have had something to do with skipping all the core classes that held absolutely no appeal to me because, in my opinion, they could not open any doors towards becoming the superstar sports reporter I knew I was going to be.


At the time, my ego took a hit, but I knew I’d be fine, with or without that damn diploma.


“Confidence doesn’t mean you’re any good,” my professor said.


I had survived worse than hearing that truth. Growing up in the inner city teaches you resilience and toughens you through lessons of violence, poverty, and fear.


I left home when I was 16 years old, but I would have left sooner if I’d had the opportunity. I didn’t want to end up like my mom, who was living on welfare and in an abusive relationship.


I didn’t want to wake up with drug dealers and prostitutes on my couch, and I sure as hell didn’t want to be too scared to go to sleep anymore.”
