Sneak Preview of Spirit Nudges

We’ve all been there.

The world comes down so hard on us, we want to hide in a hole until the pressure eases. We are forced to make rapid-fire decisions, but are only vaguely aware of which direction we should turn. Should I take that job and move across the country? Did I make the right decision in getting married? Should I trust my friend with this secret? What should I do?

Imagine for a minute that you have many of the answers at your fingertips. All you have to do is learn how to access them. It’s not a button that you press or a file that you read; it’s something that is already built into your spiritual makeup, a part of you that you might not be tuned into.

I call them nudges.

I’ve been getting them all my life, but the first one I truly remember occurred when I was ten years old.

I was somewhat of a willful child, one prone to pushing the boundaries. If my mother told me to be inside the house by the time it got dark, I came in mere seconds after the street lights illuminated. When I found a stray collie dog wandering the neighborhood, I hid it in our garage for several weeks until I was discovered. The word no was a starting place for me, not an ending.

One night as my mother was cooking dinner, she emphatically told me that I wasn’t allowed to eat any snacks before dinner. She was making fried chicken and was tired of seeing me pick at my food because I’d filled up on cookies beforehand.

As the chicken sizzled in the skillet, my mother left the kitchen to answer a phone call. Once she was gone from the room, I eyed the cookie jar sitting on the counter.

One cookie wouldn’t hurt anything, right?

I had my hand out, reaching for the cookie jar when I heard a voice inside my head.

“Don’t do that!” it said. The voice sounded vaguely like my grandmother’s voice with a tone that was almost conspiratorial. She wasn’t yelling at me like my mother would have, she simply didn’t want me to get caught. I dropped my arm in an instant and jolted around to look behind me.

My grandmother wasn’t there, which would have been very odd, considering she’d been dead for four years, but I wasn’t alone. My mother had pulled the phone cord to the kitchen doorway and was silently watching me with arched eyebrows.

“You weren’t getting into those cookies, were you?” she asked.

I feigned innocence and reached past the cookie jar to the crock of spoons. I selected the first one my trembling fingers landed on and moved to the stove, where I began stirring the boiling potatoes, my mind racing.

Who had tipped me off?

Was it my grandmother? The thought sent a chill racing down my spine. If it was my grandmother, did that make her a ghost? I wasn’t sure what to make of it. The only thing I knew was that she had helped me when I needed her assistance. As it turns out, it wouldn’t be the first time.

My grandmother, along with an entire army of spiritual allies, have helped me all my life. They’ve steered me away from bad relationships, prevented me from getting into accidents and have helped me find the path I was intended to follow. All I had to do was listen to the nudges.

It all starts with one word: believe.


Spirit Nudges – Allowing Help from the Other Side will be released on March 16th, which also happens to be my birthday. Stay tuned!

    • He will come to you when the time is right. I’ve had a few relatives who haven’t come to me at all, so sometimes it simply doesn’t happen. That doesn’t mean they aren’t looking out for us, but communication is often difficult or they feel it’s not in your best interest. Signs are often small and fleeting. We miss them because they seem too much like coincidence, so pay close attention. It also might take him some time, so be patient as well.

  2. My grandmother passed last June 2015.I was with her when she drew her last breath.I miss our phone conservations so much.I havnt noticed her with me at all.why??

    • It’s always hard to say, but I think that either she’s not ready or you’re not ready. When they come to us too soon, they disrupt our grieving process. Give it time and keep your eyes open. When the time is right, she’ll come to you.

  3. Thank you, Joni, for your profound and beautifully articulated insight. I’m a relative newcomer to the spiritual world, and I’ve recently had an amazing spiritual awakening, but I still have lots of questions. You put a good spin on some worries I had about being able to raise my vibrations while still being an imperfect, emotional human. Phew!

    Until recently, I was extremely depressed and hopeless, and unsure if life was worth living. Long story short-I started watching Long-Island Medium, and My Ghost Story, and then went out and obtained (quite easily, to my shock) my own paranormal evidence, which proved to me that there was life after death–and it was super fun and exciting, too. I have several of your books by the way, which have been very helpful. Anyway, after listening to Theresa Caputo’s book setting out what really happens after we die, etc., I was filled with hope again, and set out on a quest for more answers. Not only did I find out that most people do reincarnate, I found out why, and a whole lot of other mind-blowing things about life, including the fact that we humans are actually immortal.

    I read many famous mediums’ books, and lots of other material on the subject, but the number one best source of info I found was the amazing Dolores Cannon, a pioneer of past-life regression hypnosis, and world-famous researcher and author, unfortunately recently deceased. I’m guessing you probably already know about her but just in case you don’t, I wanted to share this link with you: If you want to know more about reincarnation, God, other Universes, lost civilizations and information, even Aliens-yeah, I didn’t want to believe it at first either– check it out. Cheers!

    • Thank you for the kind words, April. The biggest reason why I write what I do is to share it. When I first started going through my own spiritual awakening, there wasn’t a lot of information on the subject. Thank you for sharing the link to the author. I will definitely check it out.

  4. my mother passed away in March 2006 between the age 96 – 98 and three months later she appeared in my dream to read John 2 vs 1-11. A few years later I dreamed her this time she was in the sky lying facing north but I could not see what she was lying on. I gave her chocolates and fruits I was picking from the sky both she thoroughly enjoyed.

  5. I’ve had many messages from my huband after he passed. ..but none lately. …here’s one.
    I purchased a dozen of roses to take to grave service but when I got there I realized I had forgotten them and became very upset. A dear friend said don’t worry you were ment to forget them. When I came home I decided to take roses out of fridge and put in a vase. I then set vase on table and as I did the dvd player came on and played our song. I thanked him and had a good cry!
