Just Breathe, Reya**



The angels are here, and they have their shopping lists in hand. That's what I "heard" from one of my spirit guides yesterday. This is a far different idea than the open portal image I've been working with. If your name isn't on the list, you're good to stay here on this plane.

Whew. This idea has helped me calm down considerably, something I'm going to need next Tuesday. Really my spirit guides are so good to me.

As I looked at the last photos taken of Michael Jackson, in my mind's eye I "saw" him rising at last from his body. Floating up to the ceiling of his grand house, I "saw" him look down upon himself one more time. Surely the sight was as shocking to his soul as it is to my eye. Maybe he thought, "What the hell was I thinking?" or some such thing before he took off.

I've read a lot of mean-spirited notes and comments about MJ, all of which make me feel sad, and help me understand one of the reasons he became so weird close to the end. People, it is not kind to speak ill of the dead. Let the poor guy rest in peace, please? Thank you.

**Borrowed from the title of the blog Just Breathe Janis. What a great blog name! It's a great blog.

I'm honored that you mentioned my blog and yes, sometimes we all just need to breathe. The title came to me as I lay in bed conterplating if I should start a blog.
Once again, beautiful photos.

There's a list? How quickly the paradigm changes.

The clouds in the windshield are fantastic, a very appropriate metaphor.

I thought I left you a long comment yesterday. Oh well, Poof. It is not good to dwell on the dark clouds in any case.

Reya Mellicker said...

Not just any list - they are "shopping lists" - at least according to my spirit guides. It seems jollier - and a lot more personal - than the idea of a big door wide open with a holy wind blowing through. At least to me.

The Bug said...

What's happening on Tuesday? Did I miss something? I've really enjoyed the cloud pictures lately (I even have one on my blog that I attributed to "delusions of Reya").

I've dreamed of my dead mother for the last three nights. In one dream she was helping me fix my hair; in another she was letting my husband and me stay in her spare room until we could get back on our feet. I've had a number of times since she died where she feels more present & inhabits my dreams - I wonder if those are times when the portal you're talking about is open?

lakeviewer said...

Reya, Janis will be thrilled with this mention. O.k. She is!

The picture is surreal.

Lover of Life/ Nancy said...

That photo was amazing! I agree with MJ. Time to let him go and rest in peace. Will check out new blog.

JC said...

I like the clouds in the window ..

On MJ, he was very talented but with any one, sometimes what you see and what is in their personal life, is totally different.

I do hope he is at peace now.

And, that list, I'm not on it am I ?

Rain said...

I'm really sad by MJ's passing, and more so of the bad things that are in the media right now...I have stopped reading it. He suffered so much for the last few decades, why? Because he was who he was...tears.

I like the concept of the "shopping list." Bringing back select souls for the mighty change acomin.'

My psychic word verification: undo.

Elizabeth said...

I saw the lamp in the window of the house.
Looks like a nice house; maybe I could sit and read there.
Hmm......shopping lists.
I was buying some cherries yesterday at the corner of my street.
A man selling coins nearby piped up
"If you eat strawberries and raspberries you will live for ever"
I said, "I don't want to live forever."
That deflated him a bit.
He then produced a photo of himself in Casablanca in 1943. He is 83 looks 63 and a bit like Jack Lalane. Intensely irritating........!
Hugs and keep on taking deep breaths...........

Mary Ellen said...

Your photo montage creates a strong mood - can't put words to it. Something breaking through? What's on the other side of the ordinary lamp in the window? Hope you stay peaceful and strong through whatever is facing you.

ellen abbott said...

Ahhh, Reya. That makes much more sense. They don't come get you til it's your time.

mum said...

enjoy the good times, Reya.

Reya Mellicker said...

But - Tuesday is Jake's date with destiny. Don't want to write a lot about it. He's ready. I'm getting ready.

All I have to do is keep breathing. The time will pass and then he'll be gone.

It's like walking through fire.

Reya Mellicker said...

Meant "Bug" not "but" ...

globaltoll said...

Reya,

I will be thinking of you and Jake on Tuesday.

Rain said...

Reya, I hadn't realized that Tuesday was the day. My heart is hurting for you and your baby Jake. Of course, I will have to face that in the near future with my two babies and am in complete denial. I so wish you the best and the best and the best that I have to say it three times and it doesn't even begin to describe the good wishes I send to you and Jake. I'm not a religious person, so I won't say I'm sending prayers, but I will be lighting a special candle for Jake on Tuesday with some loving thoughts and words for him as he travels to the peace and beauty of the Summerland. Blessings and love.
xxxxx

Reya Mellicker said...

Thanks so much Rain and Global. Candles are going to be burning for my old dog in many locations around the world. I'm in awe of great kindness and generosity. So much love is being sent to me. I can feel it and I think Jake can, too. Thank you to all. Wow.

Cyndy said...

Best wishes to you and Jake. I know how hard it is to get "ready" for something like that.

Natalie said...

Sending love for you and Jake.xx♥

Celestite said...

There is a big gang of my own on the other side of the bridge. I will send them a message to watch for Jake.

The Bug said...

I'll add my thoughts & prayers to the others...

I often type too fast & call myself Danabut - so no problem!

Delwyn said...

Dear Reya

I'll advise Kealia...

Happy Days

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Great to see you in person, too, Reya. Love the doggie pic, fellow air sign!

lettuce said...

angels with shopping lists? thats quite an unsettling image, i'm not sure if I find it comforting or disturbing...

Val said...

the shopping list - its like a peer group of souls if that makes sense; a rite of passage... this does seem to happen in batches. i wonder who else is on the list and how long it is??
MJ - such a meteoric talent, he became a 'phantom of the opera' figure; lonely - freaky - different. He was cleared in those aweful court cases so we should give him the benefit of doubt now? His music is a gift to us all - altho i was never a main fan, some is so classic, Heal the World, Earth Song, You are Not Alone - all fabulous. RIP MJ

Val said...

will be thinking of you and Jake on Tuesday of course xx

Hi Reya,

Okay, I was catching up with my reading and left a comment on the previous post before reading this one.

But my comment applies to this post too and is pretty much telling you what your spirit guides are telling you. I even mention them in my comment.

Anyway, I hope you find time to read it.

Sorry it is so long, but I did not know how to shorten it. I do hope it too helps you.

God bless.

Mrsupole said...

I also wanted to say that we are all holding your hand right now and his paws, we are with you, all will be well, the angels will be watching and protecting. And Grandpa and the others will be there too, to guide his way.

God bless.

ellen abbott said...

From my heart to yours Reya.

Dani said...

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.

Thinking of you and Jake...

Merle Sneed said...

I'm thinking of you, my dear.

Cynthia said...

Reya, I completely agree with you about Michael Jackson...let his spirit find a balancing place and support for another future expression. I hope that your next few days are experienced with tranquility. I know that it's difficult to make the decision to let Jake go...but by making the decision, you are helping him to let go of you too. May you celebrate his shared "gold puppy" life with you, soon. <3

btw-I gave you an award but you don't have to follow up. (Now is not the time.)I just wanted to send some more people your way, and thank you for your friendship. <3

Andrea said...

Just found a quick moment to catch up on blog reading. My thoughts are with you this coming Tuesday. You will find peace, I know.

Reya Mellicker said...

Thanks so much to all of you. Dani I love that story, and Ellen, and Merle and Cynthia and Andrea and all of you

T H A N K Y O U !!

I feel the support and encouragement and I know Jake feels it, too. Right at the moment I am not able to focus, but I'll be by to pick up my award, Cynthia, as soon as I'm able. And to catch up with all my blog friends, true friends, every one of you.

Amy said...

Reya -

My arms will be outstretched and wrapped around you and Jake in the next couple of days. You are indeed brave and strong and demonstrating the greatest love. Sometimes our attachments keep us from wanting selfishly, to keep our loved ones with us at all costs. But, you know what love truly is and are willing to let Jake be at peace and out of pain, even though it will cost you a piece of yourself.

Most loving and affectionate thoughts are with you.

Amy

Karen said...

Reya, I'm sending love and comfort to you & Jake. I'll let Buford know to look for him on the other side--he was our badass cat who lived up to his name. :) Karen

Barbara Martin said...

Deep breaths are best, Reya.

I have a wolf spirit that visits me in my dreams from time to time, though I think he tends to stay close. He's from another life of mine, many centuries in the past.

The shopping lists make perfect sense. When I meditated on how an editor for my fiction writing would be found I received an image of an enormously tall robed figure behind a lecturn, upon which lay an open book. The figure's hand went from page to page, then the forefinger went down a list of items in the book coming to a stop at a particular name.

Whenever you ask by thought or word for something, the universe or god answers in ways we do not immediately understand.

Reya, I also feel vibrations when something is occurring or about to occur. The stronger the vibration the closer it is to me. If I'm overly concerned I aks my angels to provide an answer in a dream or another message. An answer is always provided.

My thoughts, white light and blessings are going your way and Jake's.

Barry said...

My thought will be with you on Tuesday.

Much love!

willow said...

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow (Tuesday) morning, Reya. Peace to you and Jake, dear friend.

mouse (aka kimy) said...

Mrsupole said...

Reya and Jake,

May God go with you both and peace be in your heart. My thoughts and prayers are with you this morning and wish I could comfort you both, but know the only thing I can do is send you prayers and love. One cannot know how you feel, but can only say that one has been through the same process before. I want you to know I am here for you and if needed to talk about it and cry about it, I am here. My heart is bursting and wish so much I could be there to truly hold your hand and comfort you. I know not what else to say except that I have love in my heart and tears falling, for both you and Jake in this time of need. He will be dearly missed.

God bless you both. ((((HUGS)))

Alaine said...

Dear Reya,

It's 9:34pm Tuesday evening here and I know that your morning has just begun.

Thinking of you both, remembering six years ago and our decision to let our darling Pug, 'Bruffy' go. Bruffy, hi little guy, your new friend's name is Jake. Have fun together.

Reya, you're very brave and just know that Jake had a great life!
