Your Meta Questions – April 2015

Q. How do you know if someone has the ability to a medium (ability to communicate with the deceased) or maybe an animal communicator?

A. First, I’d like to say that some may have the desire for a particular ability, but may not have brought that ability into this lifetime. Having said that, I encourage giving the ability a serious attempt.

When I meet with someone, I may see little “clues” (energetically) or symbolism to tell me. This does not happen with everyone.

When someone comes to work with me, I may see a line of deceased people following the client. This tells me that the client has the ability possibility to hear/see/sense and/or know the deceased.

The deceased can “see” this ability possibility in the client’s energy field, and they follow in hopes of being heard.

For someone who has the ability possibility of animal communicator, I may see either a line of animals following behind the client or I may see animals of various types beside, behind, draped across the shoulders, perched on the head or shoulders, etc. of the client.

Just because someone has the ability possibility doesn’t mean that they have to be that. It just means they have brought that ability into this lifetime…it’s up to each individual to pursue and refine it…or not.

We are not necessarily defined by one or two abilities – nor do we have to work the abilities that show up, unless the ability or abilities are part of the individual’s soul plan for this life.

Q. What might someone who has medium abilities, and doesn’t know it, experience?

A. They can experience hearing whispering (especially at night), but may not be able to make out the words.

They may experience “knowing” information about a friend/acquaintance’s deceased relative (the knowledge just appears in their mind).

They may experience anxiety with an unknown cause. This may be, energetically, a response to not following one’s soul plan of being a medium.

They may see or “see” (in the mind’s eye) ghosts.

Q. What might someone who has animal communication abilities, and doesn’t know it, experience?

A. They may experience a unusual physical bond with physical animals. For example, animals may just follow them around.

An injured or lost animal may seek that person out. If this happens, please use caution…wild animals and injured animals (wild or not) can strike out to protect themselves.

The person may also instinctively “know” what the animal wants or needs or is feeling.

Respect Starts With Self

The current theme – which began on a global scale about two months ago – is ‘Respect’.

I have heard this from every person’s team that I have encountered as well as hearing it from Mother Earth’s team.

The Respect that the teams are talking about is not the ego-driven, self-important respect.

The Respect that the teams are talking about asks you to step out of one’s self-absorbed universe and honor the energy of those you encounter in life – and seeing and honoring those beyond your visual awareness or visual universe (those beings you cannot see – in the oceans, skies, other side of the globe, etc.)

Respect is honoring other life forms/beings and their rights to thrive and survive in a clean, healthy environment.

Respect is honoring others environments, property, boundaries, feelings, beliefs, and/or experiences.

This doesn’t mean you have to follow someone else’s beliefs, etc. I doesn’t mean you approve of someone else’s choices or decisions.

It does mean understanding, and allowing, their right to their choices, beliefs, etc.

Golden Rule

I am a big fan of the Golden Rule.

Do to others what you would have done to you.

Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Not A Saint

I am – by no means – a saint, but I do work hard to treat others as I want to be treated.

Sometimes, though, I get frustrated when my efforts, words, and/or deeds go unnoticed, unheard or unseen, and I will then treat the person the way they have treated me.

Just a note – that rarely turns out well.

The person often comes back angry and/or hurt, and demanding to know why I “turned” on them.

So why did/does this technique of treating someone – in a negative or disharmonious manner – the way you were treated by them, fail?

Some people just don’t get it. They don’t think they are doing anything wrong. Belittling, berating, misusing, and/or abusing others feelings, belongings, environment, seems perfectly acceptable to them.

I don’t believe it is acceptable, from anyone on any scale. Personal, city, state, region, country, continent, globally, or universally.

Respect Starts with Self

Respect actually starts with self. I believe that if you don’t respect yourself, then how can you know how to respect others?

Think about it – our society shows us disrespect from grade school on. We are taught from day one that everyone else knows what we need and what we should do. We are taught that we – as individuals – don’t count…our thoughts, or feelings do not matter.

Okay, that was a gross generalization – but we are programmed from a early age. As we grow, many have to find respect for themselves. Sometimes it comes easily; sometimes they had it all along; and some still haven’t found it.

This is my belief – but it does not excuse one from their behavior.

So What Can We Do?

There may be no clear cut answer. I can only recommend:

– Following the Golden Rule.

– Respect yourself first. You cannot always change others, but you can change self.

– Do not allow yourself to become a doormat – allowing others to walk all over you, so to speak.

– Remove the person/energy from your space and/or remove yourself from the disharmonious environment.

I respect myself enough to not become mired in the muck of disrespect. And I work hard to not disrespect others – two-legged; four-legged; winged; finned; furred; or Mother Earth.

Energy Update – April 6, 2015

The keyword for this update is “wonkified”. Okay, it’s not a real word, but I feel it totally fits.


Emotions are…well…wonky.

Anger, gratitude, annoyance, joy, bliss, frustration, etc. It makes a roller-coaster ride seem more steady than our emotions.


Concentration is kind of sucky right now.

Shielding, affirmations, etc. that used to take me – at the most – five minutes have recently averaged about twenty-six minutes to complete.

My attention span is – oh! Look, a butterfly! Harumph, the winds are annoying me. Wonder what I’m going to wear today. What was I doing? Oh, yeah. Concentrate, Jan. Shield. I feel like working with my essential oils today. Oh! Don’t I have to go into town this morning? Shield, Jan! Argh!

I constantly feel like my thoughts are drifting and I need to rein them back in. Once I get focused, it is great… but getting there? Not so much. The day can go in a blink.


Cravings. For me, it’s chocolate. Okay, it’s pretty much always chocolate – but this has been different, more intense – and since I don’t consume sugar (I use stevia), it is more about the chocolate.

I have also been craving spices, like fennel, garam masala, etc.

Fluctuations. Waking up with a growling, insistent stomach, and the drive to eat full meals.


The other extreme where I’ll fix a bowl of vegan “chicken” broth for a meal, because I don’t really feel like ingesting/eating anything.

Short-Circuiting Electronics

Yeah, I thought those days were over. I keep shielding my electronics/electrical stuff to keep their energy steady, but that’s not helping so much against my energy output spurts.

We have to learn to live and function – without frying our electronics – in this newer energy. Concentrate on keeping your own energy steady, shield self, then shield everything else.

Remember, it’s not happening to you – it’s happening with, and through, you.

Take responsibility for your (wandering?) thoughts and your energy “upgrade”. Practicing, with conscious intent, will help.

I also recommend:

Every so often, take a few deep breaths; chant “Ohm” (if appropriate); garden; do something physical and be kind with self.

Mass Exodus Response Team

My condolences to those whose lives were lost in this tragedy and to those whose lives were changed by the loss of loved ones.

This article:

  • Talks about death and may be disturbing to some.
  • Is in response to many Lightworkers experiences before, during and after the recent plane crash. Because we are becoming more sensitive to energy, and energy fluctuations, many may have had a more intense experience this time.

My apologies to any who may feel offended, or feel that I am being insensitive – that is not my intent. I also know that all are whole and well, even though they are no longer on the physical level.


The Mass Exodus Response Team (MERT) is comprised of Lightworkers who will respond – on an energetic level – before, during and after a mass exodus.

A mass exodus – for the purpose of this article – is an accident, incident or event where a large number of humans lose their physical life. Some examples may be a plane crash, train crash, explosions, fires, etc.

There are many energy/soul roles, but the following is my understanding and/or interpretation of my role as MERT responder. I will try to provide an generalized overall picture.

Prior to an Accident

When an accident is coming up, the MERT is dispatched, for lack of a better term, as a practice run with the souls who will be involved in the accident.

While I don’t have all of the answers, I can share what I have “seen” or “experienced”.

MERT meets up – on an energetic level – with those who will be involved in the event/accident.

We do a walk-through practice prior to the actual incident; this is everyone can learn about where they can go and what they can do during and after the event.

No one is ever forced to work with us – though I have no memory of anyone refusing to work with us.

Immediately before the actual accident, the souls leave their bodies. They are not in their bodies when the event occurs.

Once the accident has happened, and one’s physical body dies, the cord that had been connecting the soul to the body is severed. The soul is free of the body.

The soul is then encouraged to go to a centralized meeting place (again, not on the physical level) along with the others who perished in the accident. This is kind of like spiritual triage; checking everyone out, helping them where needed.

Those who carry trauma will be guided to a MERT responder with knowledge and ability to aid that being though their trauma.

There are also MERT responders who answer questions and/or guide the being to another who can help.

One of my roles is to aid those who are ready to cross over. Oftentimes there is a deceased family member, friend and/or pet standing by to greet them and guide them to the other side (cross over).

MERT responders stay until each being has decided on what they want to do.

MERT Responders on the Physical Level

What happens to the MERT responders physical bodies while they are working energetically?

We go into automatic-mode, or auto-pilot. We only leave enough of our essence (soul/energy) in our body to carry on…usually leave only the bare minimum here.

We seem/feel disconnected, distracted and/or have a sense of vague-ness. This can happen about twenty-four hours before an event and continue through until everyone has been aided through the event and moved on as per each individual’s decision.

The Inside View

Physically, for me:

  • I don’t feel “all here”
  • I don’t get into anything requiring my full attention or energy
  • The day of the event is a blur or foggy – I may not remember a lot about that day.

When my job is done for that event, I am suddenly physically alert. For example, I snapped back in around 11am (mountain time) yesterday following the airplane crash. I was tired, but my focus was once again able to be on the physical.

Questions and Answers

Q. So why doesn’t MERT stop the event from happening?

A. Again, I don’t have all of the answers, but I do know that we are not allowed to stop the event from happening.

When I was younger, I used to “see” upcoming mass exodus incidents before they happened, but I wasn’t allowed to change or alter anything.

I became so distressed that I told my team to quit showing me things that I couldn’t help or change.

Now, I know when I am preparing, doing a walk-through and aiding after the event, but usually don’t consciously know what the event was until I am “back” and it has already happened.

Q. Are all MERT responders consciously aware of being MERT?

A. No. Many may know that they have occasional periods of not being totally “with it” or not being “all there”, but not why. That is one of the reasons for this article.

Q. Is every Lightworker a member of MERT?

A. No, though each Lightworker does have more than one role in this lifetime – both physical and non-physical roles.

There are also various non-physical roles – acting both singularly or in groups – that Lightworkers participate in. One that was previously touched on briefly was that of the White Knights.

Another example would be those on a team that do stop tragedies from occurring.

Some singular (one being) redirects. These could be one lone survivor of a mass event, or a single redirect from an event, for example someone missed their connecting train or flight, or was hung up in traffic, etc.

There is also mass redirects; the oncoming accident, by some miracle, was diverted at the last moment.

Q. What about the people left behind here? Those who lose loved ones?

A. We each have specialty guides that come in and out of our life as we need them. There are grief guides who will offer support, love and be with those grieving. The person grieving may not feel, or know, that they are near – but they are there and will remain to aid and support.

Again, my condolences to those who lost loved ones.

What is My Soul’s Purpose?

(Continuation from Odd Energy Lately)

  • Feeling stuck or stagnated
  • Driven to find soul’s purpose for this lifetime

These two concerns may be linked.

So many of us asked ourselves, or asked others, “What is my soul purpose?”, “Why am I here?”, or “I know I’m here for something, but can’t figure out what it is.” With this may come the feeling of being stuck or stagnant.

I was one of those…for many years. Since I didn’t get a clear cut answer, I decided to just keep doing what I was doing until I found my soul purpose.

I continued to teach and share about energy and that which was beyond the physical (metaphysical and paranormal), and to do consultations.

One day – not too long after I discovered my passion (which was a “duh!” moment for me – it was teaching, sharing and consultations), the questions began to disappear.

I hadn’t become complacent. Rather, it felt like – deep down inside – that I already knew what it was and knew, when it was time, my conscious mind would know it too. I have faith in my higher self and my team of guides.

In the meantime, my purpose was learning, experiencing, understanding, growing and sharing. I was building the skills needed to step into my “main” role later in my life.

I realized one day that I had changed. I will always continue to learn, and would like to think I will continue to share, but I feel as though I have now graduated college – so to speak – and am now going out to start implementing what I had learned.

I am stepping more fully into the role that I was called to Earth to do.

I can’t (or maybe won’t?) sit here and say that I am ___________ and __________. Those are labels – and we are multi-faceted and not intended to be held within label boundaries.

I also can’t (won’t?) say I cam here to do __________ and __________. Again, we are multi-faceted and do things not confined by labels.

But, as I write this, I see within me parts and pieces of my roles.

I guess what I am saying is….

Your inner self or higher self knows why you are here.

If you still have those questions about your soul purpose, then perhaps you are still building your skill sets.

But – simplified – as long as you work and learning, seeking, growing and doing what is harmonious (and without ego), and aiding others on their journey (without becoming doormats), then chances are you are fulfilling your soul purpose as of now.

I believe the questions will stop when your higher self says you are ready to move forward and begin stepping into your ultimate purposes.

Energy Update – March 20, 2015

Today is a busy day – and the incoming energies are pretty potent.

Some of what people are experiencing today may be:

  • extremely high pitched whine in one or both ears
  • fluctuating between the ability for sharp focus and thoughts drifting
  • clearer “vision” when meditating, channeling, working with team
  • a bit jittery, like a touch too much chocolate or coffee – not heart pounding, but perhaps feeling like nervous energy

For me, when then high pitched whine cycles through, I stop, breathe slowly and deeply, and allow. I noticed that when I was getting agitated or felt pressured (from/with everyday problem solving), the whine became more insistent. When I stopped, took some slow deep breaths (relaxing my body) – the whining lessened or stopped.

The whining, on a metaphysical/spiritual level, is the incoming “downloads” or energy. This, for me, is the highest pitch I have ever heard – my take is that it is because it is a higher frequency energy coming in.

If I start drifting or losing focus, I gently (and lovingly) bring myself back to focusing. I am not harsh or hard on myself.

And I kind of like the small energy jolts. My heart is not pounding, but I have energy to spare. *grin*

And I am definitely not complaining about clearer “vision”.

For me, I am totally excited about the energies I have felt coming in the last two weeks (or so) and the boosters today (which may continue on after today).

Recommendations: Be gentle and loving to self. Take relaxing breath breaks if needed. You can re-shield to reaffirm that your shield is in place as well as the act of shielding gives you a focus.
