Creative Soul Expressive Body Movement Challenge:

Hot is the flame. You ARE the flame. Stand, or sit up very tall; feeling yourself becoming the flame as you burn, waver like a flame, melt wax, dance, jig in place, alight!  How does that feel?  Don't just describe it, but rather DO IT; move or dance or sway - feel it, feel it, feel it.  Go into your body and ask it what it needs right now.

My experience: I swayed gently in place and felt my eyes burning.  I wanted to burn with passion and a vision for change. I wanted to cut through the bullshit and touch the heart through radical acts of love; transforming nations, killing haters; their hate turning inwards and onto themselves as they are no longer able to hurt others. My vision burns white and it heals, it cleanses, it transforms. I open my palms and I feel no heat...I am one with the flame. I pray and send thanks to the Divine for this teaching.

About Kathy Kathy Crabbe is a Soul Guide, artist, author and educator. Originally from Canada, Kathy currently lives and works in the wine country of Temecula, California. Kathy created a Lefty Oracle Deck after spending 7 years drawing with her non dominant left hand. This awakened Kathy’s intuitive, creative soul in new ways and inspired her to help others follow their dreams. Since then Kathy has given over 1000 intuitive readings using her Lefty Oracle deck as well as teaching at the Wise Woman University. Her art has appeared in galleries, museums, magazines and on HGTV. Kathy formed a writer’s group in Temecula to share her ‘lefty’ art and poetry which she also published in a zine featuring local writers. Kathy and a life sized Lefty were invited to speak at an International Women’s Day event in Los Angeles that the LA Times dubbed “self esteem boosting” which was almost as dreamy as hearing her favorite song performed by Michelle Shocked in the background as she spoke. Currently Kathy is teaching watercolor classes in Temecula and surrounding areas.

On Reincarnation, Mediumship and Channeling

Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation by Noel Langley"Often I have fallen far short in presenting myself as a living sacrifice for whatever source might manifest through me. In that sense, I suppose I may be called a medium.  But I hope I may be, rather, a channel through which blessings may come to many, rather than a medium through which any force might manifest. For if it is of God, it must be good. Or, if it is good, it must come from the All-Good, or God. This good, I trust, is the type of psychic phenomena manifesting through me."  ~ Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation

I've been reading Edgar Cayce's book on reincarnation and I agree with the passage above.  I find that through channeling I can be of greater service than through mediumship, but I didn't exactly know why until now. I did realize that by offering soul readings (ie. channeling) that I was providing guidance and insight rather than 'proving' the existence of life after death.  Don't get me wrong, I do find mediumship to be absolutely amazing and helpful, but a mediumship reading tends to be either 'right or wrong' in the eyes of the receiver (the client) especially the way I work, in that I ask the client to provide me with the first name of the ancestor they want me to connect with. As a medium, I either connect with their ancestor or I don't whereas with a soul reading, any information that comes through can be of benefit - does that make any sense?

I also feel connected with Edgar Cayce because my paternal grandmother, Ethel went to see him. I'm not sure she was successful in getting a reading from him, but she did visit his Institute, the A.R.E. in Virginia Beach and I'm sure she read his many books.

Edgar Cayce ClairvoyantAbout Edgar Cayce: "The "sleeping" Edgar Cayce was a psychic known to thousands of people, in all walks of life, who had cause to be grateful for his help.  Even as a child, on a farm near Hopkinsville, Kentucky, where he was born on March 18, 1877, Edgar Cayce displayed powers of perception which seemed to extend beyond the normal range of the five senses.  At the age of six or seven he told he parents that he was able to see and talk to "visions," sometimes of relatives who had recently died. His parents attributed this to the overactive imagination of a lonely child who had been influenced by the dramatic language of the revival meetings which were popular in that section of the country.  Later, by sleeping with his head on his schoolbooks, he developed some form of photographic memory which helped him advance rapidly in the country school.

When Edgar Cayce died on January 3, 1945, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, he left well over 14,000 documented stenographic records of the telepathic-clairvoyant statements he had given for more than six thousand different people over a period of forty-three years. These documents are referred to as "Readings." ~ excerpted from "Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation: Strange, psychic accounts of people who have lived more than once. From the files of America's most amazing clairvoyant by Noel Langley, under the editorship of Hugh Lynn Cayce.

Vision Questing as Raven Persephone

Channeling Persephone: A Vision Quest Kathy Crabbe, Raven Persephone, 2013, mixed media on paper, 5 x 8”"Help me Persephone. I am exhausted with the business of selling."

And so Persephone becomes a Raven and we race through the Underworld, me on her back, until we come to an old woman wearing rags and feathers by the name of Gemma. She has very long fingers and a cloak which she wraps around me. I am listening, though I am weary and can barely stand. She taps me three times with a silver coin and I become one with the Divine and nothing else matters.

I am the Triple Goddess and I see a link with my art. "See something you like, make me an offer," but my rational mind says, "You have tried this and it didn't work," so I hop back on Raven Persephone and back we go through the Underworld; ancestors on all sides, and I'd like to stop and chat and I think, "these visions are stories that I could illustrate, but...I don't like to illustrate." And again my hopes are dashed.

On we go, faster and faster until all is a blur. I hold on tight. Then suddenly She is gone and I am floating, weightless, not really moving. And I feel nothing and my mind is blank. I hear my phone ring but I ignore it; it's the world calling again, but no one is home although I am getting hungry.

I can feel my hair growing and growing, down, down, down to the Earth and I have no fear. Nothing can reach me up here (or down there?) And I call out for Persephone yet again. But I am Persephone and Demeter is not here and I weep for my Mother who is so far away and she weeps for me. We are alone, each in our own worlds, but there is no time for weeping. There is work to do.

Entering the Light

Persephone AltarAnd again I face my Persephone Painting (the big one) and decide to create a smaller version before going any further (a linoblock print is next). And again I pull a Norse Rune to help me connect with Persephone, Goddess of the Underworld.

Channeling Persephone ~ A Ghostly Taleansuz - A God, Mouth

Persephone: "Meet me in the Circle" (there are ghosts everywhere), but we go deeper and deeper into the center, which is blood-red.

Persephone hands me a sphere also colored blood-red. "Drink, drink," she says and so I do and the sphere empties of colour and glows clear. "Now, you are one of us. You can see/hear/feel everything down here."

She puts a paintbrush in my hand and I'm back in the cave, as before, waiting to be guided to what I need to do. Persephone helps me stay focused on my purpose and not get distracted.

Me: (I realize this is how I like to work). A sunflower lights my way and I hold it with one hand and ask the dark spirits what to draw.

Dark Spirits: Go on.

Persephone: Your way is lit, your eyes shine through mine. March on, march on, march on.

Me: I see endless trails of white leading to souls; unhappy, trapped.

Persephone: Be with them, reassure them, show them the light - the source. Hold up your sphere. The sunflowers light your way.

And then, like a vacuum cleaner, or a moth to a flame, the soul's eyes open and they are sucked up and into the light by force of their will and their desire to be One with Source.

Me: What am I?

Persephone: You are the witness.

Ancestor Readings are back!

Kathy Crabbe, Maude, 2010, woodcut on paper, 8 x 10”.Ancestors are family members (or friends) that have passed away but choose to 'come through' for you in times of need so that they can offer you guidance in the form of a message. I will request specific information from your ancestor so that you can positively identify them. I will sometimes see your ancestors, hear them, or feel their presence along with their name and I will do my best to capture whatever message they have for you. It can be reassuring to know that you are being watched over and loved by those who truly care for your well-being.

Spirit Guides are wise teachers and guardians from another dimension that advise and protect us. They are dis-incarnate spirits (ie. animal totems, angels, nature spirits) that can act as spiritual counselors or protectors for us, during our time of need. I will also provide you with suggestions and techniques for connecting to your guides on your own.

NEW ~ Phone Readings

To further personalize and provide you with optimal service I now offer a 25 minute phone consultation as part of my Creative Soul Readings (US & Canada only). Along with your Reading you will receive an email containing the oracle cards chosen for your reading (from 4 of my self-designed oracle card decks.) So far, the response has been very favourable; clients are saying they really enjoy  hearing my voice and speaking with me directly.
