My grandma suffered most her life from severe depression, and when I was 11 years old, she took her life. She explained that in order to balance out her karma, she needed to work with me so that I would not suffer as she did. For eight months, I would devote time every day to connect with them through the writing. I went through deep soul searching and uncovering the illusions my mind created. They labeled my waking and eating "the night prowler" and explained it was my soul that was waking up and wanting freedom from darkness, yet my mind/ego resisting. Slowly, as I learned to love myself and find happiness within, the night prowler let up.

During this time, my guides told me I would meet my soul mate once I mastered self-love. They gave me clues to inspire me to go forward, including his name, Ryan, and said he would give me a rose and that his birthday was September 24. I kept this information in the back of my mind, hoping I wasn't making it all up. After five months of work, I was happy again and the night prowler gone! I slept a full night through for the first time in more than three years. And three months later, I was introduced to Brian Rosen (drop the B and N and you find "rian, rose"), and once I put two and two together, I asked him his birthday, which sure enough was September 24! We were engaged seven months later.

My grandma had done her work and explained that I would go on now to help many others connect with their loved ones in the hereafter. And it was then that the deceased started making it known that they were around and in need of contact with those around me. I started to understand that while the spirits were in a beautiful place and at peace, oftentimes their surviving loved ones were not. And I recognized an opportunity for me to serve as the bridge between the two worlds, offering undeniable validation that the soul is eternal and providing spiritual guidance to help the living find greater meaning and purpose for their time here on earth.

To this day, I am humbled and grateful for such a gift. I trust that I am to help others find peace and closure to suffering and pain and reconnect with their own intuitive gifts, as I did, with help from the spirit world.
