Over the last few weeks Alexa and I have taken a few days here and there to travel. It has been amazing to have a change of scenery and be around people again. It made me realize that before covid, I took a lot for granted.

I feel like the past year and a half has given me a new perspective, and a lot of other people have been telling me the same thing. But as a medium, I must say – this isn’t the first time I’ve heard from people who suddenly realize what’s truly important. The difference is, before covid, I was hearing that message from souls who had passed over.


Looking Back (Over Life and Covid) With 2020 Hindsight


One thing that differentiates souls in Heaven from the living is that they can look back over their lives with total clarity. They view things in a whole new light and understand what mattered and what didn’t. They see opportunities missed, and things they would have done differently.

But here’s the good news! You don’t have to be dead to shift your perspective and change your life for the better.


I believe the silver lining of the pandemic is that it’s taught us to appreciate life more and made us realize that we don’t always have control of what happens.


Before covid, I could never have imagined celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas without my whole extended family. But that’s exactly what happened! Now when we all get together, I’m much more aware of how precious these gatherings are to me.


What I’ve Learned…


It might sound crazy, but some of the lessons I’ve learned from the events of the last few months are the same things the dead have been saying for years. You might not realize it, but when souls come through from Heaven, they’re not just here to shoot the breeze. They have a purpose – to make the lives of the people they left behind better. They want to heal them, close out any unfinished business, and help steer them toward living their very best life. You can learn a lot from the universal messages they share, and there’s never been a better time to take these lessons to heart. For example:



  • Spend more time with the people you love. Memories the dead treasure most involve spending time with friends and family. The activities they show me are usually simple – Sunday dinners, family game nights, holiday traditions. What makes them special is the love and laughter that was shared.



  • You can’t take it with you. Souls might come through showing me their sense of style or that they liked nice cars – but they mostly do that to be recognized by the person receiving the reading. The material things we all enjoy in life aren’t important when you pass. What does matter is the happy times associated with that home, car, or other possession. So, if you have a beautiful home or car, be sure to enjoy it with the people you love – because those are the memories you’ll treasure.



  • Life is unpredictable so make the most of every day. Don’t put off your dreams or worry too much about what other people will think. I was working as an EMT, when I realized my true path. You can imagine, my career change to medium raised a few eyebrows! But I followed my heart and have found fulfillment and happiness.



  • Don’t wait. You can’t always wrap up your life in a neat package before you pass, so don’t wait to mend broken relationships, or tell someone you love them. I can’t tell you how hard some spirits work to come through to me, just so they can say “I’m sorry” or “I love you” to someone they left behind.



A Fresh Start.


I had a lot of time to think during covid, and I know what I’m going to do going forward – travel more, hug the people I care about, enjoy every day, and appreciate my health. Life is precious! We hit the pause button, and it gave everyone time to think. Now that the world is slowly opening, You have a chance for a fresh start.

So, here’s my challenge for you. Think about what you’ve learned over the past year and take another look at the messages the dead have for all of us. Then go ahead and take the first step toward your best life!
