“I LOVE your book and messages – very lovely and so positive and loving – and easy to use.”Bodhi Simpson, LCPC, ATR, Art Therapist

If each of us had received these kinds of messages about ourselves and about the world – loving, kind, affirming, welcoming messages that foster self confidence and encourage us to listen to our own guts – it would be a very different world.

We all need these reminders from time to time as we actively working on a deep level to heal the core wounds that are holding us back from realizing our full potential.

Soul Messages help you remember who you are.

“It’s as if she reads my mind and my heart, then tells me exactly what I need to hear! These cards and their expanded explanations in the Soul Messages book are so uplifting and inspiring, I’ve made it a daily ritual to begin my morning by drawing a card from the pretty little drawstring bag that Phyllis made, and then meditating on the corresponding message in the book.” – Kitty Hartford, Drum Goddess

“I love your cards and book SO MUCH! Not just what they say; I am slowly devouring the messages, but also the way they feel. The texture and presentation of your books is positively delicious. I have been pulling a card every day, and I seem to get exactly the message  I need to hear every time. Thank you so much!”Jennie Sheldon Gilmore, astrologer 

Soul Messages help you connect with the loving Universe.

From the Introduction

“You’re just like….” 

“You’ll never….”

“You’d be so pretty/handsome/strong/popular if….”

“Nobody likes a ….”

“The world doesn’t….”

“He who hesitates….”

“The early bird….”

From the moment we are born, we receive messages about ourselves and about life. I received them, you received them. After decades of doing the work to heal some of my deepest-seated issues, I found I was still unhappy. At one point I looked around at my life and realized there was nothing on the outside that was really that terrible. All the suffering and drama were happening on the inside, in my thoughts, and, by extension, in my feelings.

I began to examine those thoughts and to question the worldview they expressed. I began to experiment with rejecting them. I did this in several ways. I tried to put the belief into words and then state its opposite. All of its opposites. “You’re just like your father” became “You’re nothing like your father” and “You’re not just like your father” and “You’re just like…Marlene Dietrich…Katherine Hepburn…Winston Churchill….!” I began to then see that I am my own person, unique and separate from anyone else.

Then I experimented with making other statements about myself, ones that I would love to be true but nobody, including me, had ever said about me. I went overboard and over the top, because that’s who I am, and because I wanted to create a counterweight to those other statements that felt as substantial on the other end of the spectrum. “You’re the most beautiful person I have ever met.” “You are brilliant.” “You are in exactly the right place.”

If you’ve ever experimented with words and statements, then you have probably experienced what I have–that inside, certain words and sentiments feel really good, and certain ones don’t. That’s what I began to use as my measurement of whether the words were strong enough antidotes to what I had come to regard as the poisonous thoughts I was thinking. I didn’t ask if they were true, I just asked my little wounded soul if they felt true.

With these rewording adventures and the many that followed, I began to have a space within where I could just be. I started to be curious about who I really am, something that I had never done before. I believe that in my case, no adult had really seen me and been curious to discover the uniqueness of that little person. 

I began to appreciate the roots of my own suffering. To not be seen as a unique person with unique qualities–including faults–is, in a core way, not to exist. It’s a short step from not existing to not having legitimate needs and feelings, and to not be fully in your own life. These were the deepest roots of my addiction and my subsequent unhappiness, even after I had successfully arrested the addictive behaviors that were causing me so much trouble. 

Slowly, those habitual and ingrained beliefs and thoughts began to lose their grip on my internal environment. I began to question every thought that contained a gross generalization, because that is how to recognize a belief. 

“Everyone always….”

“Nobody ever….”

“The world doesn’t….”

“There’s only so much _____ to go around….”

“Hurry up or you’ll never….”

I began to wonder then about the whole worldview that these beliefs create. I began to question that worldview, like a close friend of mine, who, after successfully completing a fire walk, asked, “What else have I been told that is not true?”
