Finding Hope & Forgiveness

How can we cultivate hope and forgiveness during our darkest hour?  With each tragedy our society endures, it feels as if we’re slipping into the abyss of a “new normal”.  This is something that we must fight against, not by pushing it away with anger, hatred or fear. Through the lens of compassion, it’s clear to see that we are not so dissimilar from one another.  It’s in realizing those similarities that the sparks of hope and forgiveness are fueled.

Practicing compassion, forgiveness, love, and kindness, with ourselves and everyone around us, can impact the world in ways we may never fully comprehend. Living a life of greater love for one another starts by seeing the divinity in each person that crosses our path. Sometimes this might be difficult to do, but it’s in recognizing this, everything changes.

A Season of Hope

 

As the Holidays draw near, and dates are crossed off the calendar, we are encouraged to slow down and connect with those we love. Candle-lit dinners and frosty morning gatherings give our hearts a tingle of sentimentality, while gently reminding us this Season offers so much more.

Reflecting on this time of year, it’s brings something more than any gift could offer.  It’s a Season of encouragement, community and hope. In a world where there seems to be so much despair, I wonder what light I can bring and how can I make a difference to those that are suffering?  Even if it’s a simple smile, kind word or action, it can mean so much to those we encounter. Our hearts may never know the impact these small gestures will make. We all have the ability to bring light into someone’s life, in a powerful and meaningful way.

The Holiday lights that decorate our space, is a reminder of how interconnected we truly are. These tiny little lights illuminate a house, neighborhood and community with a certain magical quality.  As they cast their colorful, warm glow on snowy city streets or lonely country roads, together they pierce the darkness for miles around.

Join me in celebrating this Holiday Season by coming together in love and hope, to shine our light into the world.

Premonitions of Death Saved This Woman’s Life

19418e2e-130a-4de8-8033-7732cbab415dAfter months of premonitions, Stephanie suffered an amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) in May 2013, seconds after her second child, Jacob, was born. She was clinically dead for 37 seconds. It was the actions of one doctor taking heed of Stephanie’s concerns that saved her life!

Several months prior to suffering the AFE, she was diagnosed with a complete placenta previa, which can cause serious complications during delivery.  Following this discovery, Stephanie experienced overwhelming premonitions of doom.  She told many people about her anxiety and her premonitions (not making it through the delivery, the baby being fine, her need for a hysterectomy, a rare occurrence of a potential marriage between the placenta and the uterus, among others), including her doctors in New York and Chicago, but was not taken seriously. Tune in to learn more and visit Stephanie’s website to purchase her book!

Choosing Hope

KaitlinKaitlin Roig-DeBellis is the first-grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary School who saved her entire class of fifteen six- and-seven-year-olds from the tragic events that took place on December 14, 2012, by piling them into a single-occupancy bathroom within her classroom, mere feet from the brutal and indiscriminate massacre taking place outside the door. Since then, despite the unimaginably painful experiences she endured, she has chosen to share her experience with others, in the hope that they too can find light in dark moments.

Kaitlin is the Founder & Executive Director of Classes 4 Classes, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization. Kaitlin founded Classes 4 Classes knowing that positive social change was needed, and that this needed to begin with the youngest members of our society, our K-8 students. Classes 4 Classes is a social networking tool, for every student in the United States to learn: compassion, caring, kindness, empathy, consideration, through active engagement. Classes 4 Classes has worked with over 1,000 students in 10 states. In 2015 they are expanding to all 50 states.

Choosing Hope is a lot of things. A written witness to a tragedy that will never be forgotten. A gripping firsthand testament to the power of good over the power of destruction. An inspirational memoir by a brave young woman whose story is one of courage, heroism, faith, and resilience. And a celebration of all the people who make the choice to pass along their hope and positivity to young ones—parents, mentors, and especially teachers. There is no moving on, but there is always moving forward. And how we move forward is a choice.

“Teachers rescue children every day by teaching them the skills they need to succeed in life.  But no teacher expects to have to rescue her students from a deadly attack.  Kaitlin Roig’s quick thinking and swift action saved her students’ lives. In her book, Choosing Hope, Kaitlin honors the memory of the children and educators whose lives were lost on that sad day.” — Mrs. Laura Bush, Former First Lady of the United States 

Choosing Hope is a stirring memoir, capturing not only the brutality of the Sandy Hook tragedy but the incredible heroism, resilience and grace that emerged in its wake. Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis’s deep love for her students makes this a bold, inspiring and ultimately hopeful book.”  — Arianna Huffington, co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post and author of the New York Times bestseller Thrive

Join me on Friday, November 6th at 5am & 5pm EST with special guest, Celebrity Psychic Medium Lynn Van Praagh-Gratton on Moments with Marianne on Dreamvisions 7 Radio Network as we discuss Connecting with Loved Ones Who Have Passed & Signs from the Other Side,

It wasn’t until Lynn met a woman who told her that she is “A Bridge Between Worlds” that everything fell in place. It was that simple phrase that connected for her the journey on which she’d been on, and the road on which she was to continues to travel. Lynn likens her calling to being on the precipice of an abyss, hearing whispers and seeing images of those desperately looking for someone to hear them. She stands on that bridge, arms outstretched to embrace and give voice to those who need to speak and deliver messages of love and comfort to those here on Earth in pain.
