Profile: Michelle and Ezio De Angelis tune into spirit!

‘kiss’ by Jim Tsinganos

My mothers passing two and half years ago stirred a desire in me to understand more about who we are and where we go from here. The week before she passed my mother pulled me close to her as she whispered in my ear that in a week she would be dead. She reminisced her life joys and sorrows and with profound clarity she described her funeral and how the events would play out. My mother had always been bound by fear and this was perhaps the first time I’d heard her speak emancipated from any insecurity. This was her truth. I was intensely overwhelmed and excited at the same time. In exactly one week to the day my mother took her last breath just as she had told me. And indeed the funeral was as she had described it. Never before had she and I shared such a phenomena like this. From that moment on I felt an electric charge surge through me. My mothers experience set me on a course that navigated me to meeting two extraordinary people that spend their days talking to people in the after life: spirits, ghosts, guardian angels call them what you like. It’s real!

michelle and ezio de angelis

Michelle and Ezio De Angelis are psychic mediums that are recognised as ‘psychics of the year’. Their latest book postcards from the other sideanswer many of the unanswered questions of what happens when we die? Where do we go and can communication still happen? It’s a beautiful book told from compassion and reverence for all their helpers in the spirit world that came together to compile this riveting read.

I’ve had first hand experience with Ezio connecting with my mother and it was extraordinary. During the telephone session I forgot that Ezio was the medium and I felt like I was just having a catch up with my mum. There is no doubt that when the body dies the spirit lives on and on. Michelle and Ezio are my beloved teachers and they have very generously given up some precious time to be interviewed. To find out more: http://www.eziodeangelis.com.au/

How do you describe what you do for a living?

Basically, we connect people with their loved ones in the spirit world. We do this by providing what is called survival evidence. Survival evidence is comprised of details relevant to the person in spirit which can be confirmed by the person having the reading.

The reason for what we do as mediums  is to show people that though their loved ones are no longer physically with them, they are still around and that the bonds of love they shared still exist. Our goal is to bring healing and comfort through our work.

– When did you realise you could communicate with spirit?

This is a tricky one. Both of us have had many experiences with spirit dating back to our childhoods. But when you are a child, being less judgemental, you just take these things in your stride believing it is part of who you are like your eye colour!

As for doing readings, both of us were in our thirties by the time we actually consciously began to practice and develop our abilities.

– What was your first experience with spirit?

Again, that is difficult to pin point. Ezio has a great story of being in trouble for talking in class as a kindergarten student and being sent to the back of the room to face the wall. To the teachers disgust, he kept talking! To this day his mother insists that he must have been talking to spirit.

The first experiences Michelle remembers as a child were linked to profound dreams with significant people appearing in them, as well as “flying” dreams where she visited places that she later confirmed existed. Michelle also vividly recalls an experience while under anaesthetic as a young child where she was in a “tunnel” playing with other children.

– what was your confirmation of your guides and who they where?

There is no single confirmation of your guide – rather there are many. Developing a relationship with your main spirit guide is a slow ongoing process as is any relationship. Over time we saw or heard things during meditation or even had “psychic flashes” while doing some mundane chore such as watering the garden or hanging out washing. Each thing was somehow confirmed in its own way through signs and synchronicities.

Spirit Guides are enigmatic and can be very cryptic. They will lovingly support you but will never invest more in you than you do in them.

– What are a few of the major lessons you’ve learnt from the experience of communicating with spirit?

That life is eternal and spirit is our true home because it is the place we come from before birth and the place we return to after we die. That so many of the issues that take up all our time and energy on Earth have very little importance in the scheme of things. That every individual finds their way back to spirit regardless of race, religion, or the manner in which they die.
And finally, that the bonds of love we have for each other exist beyond physical death.

– What has been your most memorable reading you’ve done for someone?

For Michelle, her reading for Kerry, a lady in Queensland who lost her son Joel was very profound. Joel was a truly inspirational and special young man. He suffered from Multiple Sclerosis and showed a bravery and wisdom beyond hid years both during his short time on earth and during this remarkable communication with his mother.

For Ezio, the first connection he made between T.J. and his Mum Christine. T.J. was fatally stabbed when he went to defend a friend in an argument. He came through with Ezio’s spirit Guide Red Eagle which was most unusual and extremely moving for Ezio.

For this reason, both Joel and T.J’s stories are included in our co-authored book, Postcards from the Other Side.

How important is meditation to your work? What is your method of meditation?

Meditation is very important. It allows time to develop and deepen the relationship between a medium and their spirit guides and helpers. It also allows time to clear away the energetic build up that doing the work of mediumship causes over time.

Our methods of meditation are simple, but vary from time to time depending upon the purpose of the meditation. Occasionally we do journey work which is like a guided meditation designed for a specific reason e.g. to sharpen clairaudience (the ability to hear spirit, literal meaning clear hearing). Sometimes we meditate to music to help clear energies, or sometimes in silence. The object however is not to go into a blank silent space, but to connect with our guides and with the energies of spirit.

– what’s it like working together? Do you ever clash (about work)?

We actually really enjoy working together. Luckily, we get along really well so we very rarely clash. Often those who work together, especially in public, do clash but since we genuinely enjoy watching each other succeed, especially in bringing comfort to those who need it, it’s generally not a problem for us.

Basically our spiritual beliefs and philosophies are in tune which also helps!

-have you had an experience of the same spirit coming through both of you?

Yes. On a few occasions we have done joint readings (such as when writing Postcards – some of the readings for T.J.’s family were done together) with both of us bringing through information.

When we are doing public demonstrations together (which is the proper term for club “shows”) we quite often get a cross over – for example one of us will be reading and the other one who is waiting their turn will hear a name called out or see a particular scene and a second later the one who is reading will say that very name or describe the same scene!

– What advice would you give someone who is thinking about seeing a Medium?

Firstly, ask yourself do you have a need for the services of a medium. Mediumship is for the purpose of healing and works best when there is a genuine need rather than mere curiosity. Next, make sure you choose someone reputable! Being well known through the media is not always a reliable indicator of ability. Word of mouth is often the best recommendation. Be prepared to wait if the medium has a waiting list. If possible, find out whether the medium does public appearances such as at clubs and go and check them out before you have a one on one reading. The investment is very worthwhile – not only will you see if they can do what they claim, you will also give both yourself and your loved ones in the spirit world an opportunity to observe the process works first hand. Be cautious of a medium who guarantees you anything because we receive information, we don’t solicit it, so nobody can give an absolute guarantee on things such as answering a particular question or finding lost item.

Offering my sincere respect and gratitude to you both for all that you have opened in me! Deep love to you! Om shanti

perfect thinking!

Take seven minutes to watch Dr Wayne Dyer’s daughter Saje Dyer talk about healing herself of a medical condition when she was five years old.  He introduced this video with these words

“When children are raised to believe in their extraordinariness, they can really do anything. I wanted to share this video of my daughter Saje talking about one of her childhood experiences that really amazed me.”

What a beautiful testimony to the power of words, unconditional love and trust.

“As a child I knew that it was going to work.  There was no doubt in my mind that it wasn’t going to work because my parents told me that it would. “

Saje Dyer’s utter belief that she could heal herself because her parents told her so had me thinking of how we choose our words.   I’m talking about words we misuse or phrases that no longer…

Blessing the way!

blessing bracelet

When we strip away what we do for a buck and how much stuff we own or owe what defines us? I’m tempted to say nothing but that’s not true and you know it too. It’s the ‘ME’ in reMEmbering that is my truth. All that has been, the people, the animals, the plants, the wisdom, the tragedies, the ecstatic joy is the sum of who I am right now. If I could go back to all the pivotal moments of transition I would’ve paused at the intersection only to honor the journey with a ceremony to embrace who I am and who I am becoming! Sacred celebrations to make sense of the decisions that started as a hunch and have now become indented into reality. When girls become women as their bodies transform why not gather the wise women of your circle and celebrate this sacred gesture of oneness. When boys shift gear into a deeper octave and bristles dance on their faces why not gather the wise men in your clan and rejoice in the change to manhood. We have lost site of how pivotal these moments are in our lives. I say sprint with vigor to ceremony and enrich yours and your family’s life by bringing consciousness to the simple/common transitions that shape our journey into extraordinary fruition. Why walk a straight line when it’s so much more interesting to pause at the bends and rejoice in our choices.

I was privileged to attend such an event that was the blessing of a wonderful woman entering motherhood for the second time. Known as a ‘blessing way’, a ceremony steeped in Native Navajo tradition. She gathered all her most adored and admired women friends and family. We where asked to bring a bead in anticipation for threading it into a bracelet that she will wear before, during and perhaps just after the birth of her beloved child. We sat in a circle, told stories of our love for this beautiful woman, shed some tears and slowly we one by one created the ‘birthing bracelet’. The power and energy that is felt from such a sacred ceremony is something that is empowering and supportive not only to the woman we’re honoring but to all the women present. To complete the ceremony a red thread replicated as an umbilical cord was tied to the left wrist of all the women present. As soon as the baby joins us earth side all the aunties will rejoice in this miracle by cutting our cord too. It was a spectacular day and one that all women should experience.

Let’s bring back ceremony!

What is sacred in your life and what do you think is worth a ceremony? Or if you use ceremony regularly… I’d love to hear about your stories.

Tree in a bag

yuken teruya

One artist is transforming paper bags into miniature artworks of brilliance. The bags produced for the Olympics from fast food giant, McDonald has inspired artist Yuken Teruya to repackage our perception on the every day ordinary into exquisite beauty. In his latest work called “Notice-Forest: What victory tastes like/london”, he uses nothing but the bag and glue to resurrect the origins of it’s source back to life. The tree. In the center of each bag, Teruyas has delicately sculpted a tree. The question here is: Does the bag support the tree or does the strength of the tree support the bag? Included in this post are some of his earlier works where he has used upmarket department store bags. Absolutely gorgeous!

His work is currently showing at the 18th Biennale of Sydney til 16 September 2012.

The wise woman’s stone

Tso Moriri Lake photo by Prabhu B on Flickr

A wise woman, who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. She reverently placed the gem in her bag. The next day, she met another traveler, who was hungry. The wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone in the wise woman’s bag, admired it, and asked the wise woman to give it to him. The wise woman did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the jewel was worth enough to give him security for the rest of his life. But a few days later he came back, searching for the wise woman. when he found her he returned the stone and said, “I have been thinking. I know how valuable the stone is but I would like to exchange it in the hope that you can give me something much more precious. If you can, teach me the power you have within you, the power that enabled you to, without hesitation, give me this precious stone”
