August 2021 Update
Hello Everyone! I hope you are doing well in spite of this new spike in Covid-19 Delta Variant. Wow it’s been a long time since I’ve posted–I feel like I have gradually shifted to a New Way of Being since I wrote last but I’m still figuring out exactly what that looks and feels like. I have a new wonderful office where I see clients in-person in the Indianapolis area and since I’ve been vaccinated I ask for masks to be worn by the unvaccinated. This is working out well! The spiritually-minded, sensitive souls who find me seem to be a 50/50 mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated. The unvaccinated are welcome–there are so many personal reasons and choices people make and that’s what makes our country great–freedom to choose. I’m for diversity and inclusion in every way for every human! I have strict policies and cleaning protocols to keep everyone safe so no worries.
For those of you not in my area, I offer distance Reiki sessions, intuitive coaching for empaths and highly sensitive people, spiritual counseling, and angel readings too by video or phone call. More information here. I look forward to hearing from you soon! I have openings for more clients starting the 3rd week in September, 2021!
Since 2019 I’m taking a break from performing my music but I’m also creating and sharing more of my original songs of hope and healing which are actually “Reiki-Infused Music”! I’ve always called them Folk Rock Songs For the Soul but I could say For Healing the Soul!–listening to my songs can help balance your chakras and heal deep emotional wounds as they did for me when I wrote them …with Angelic help! I didn’t know at the time my angels and guides were inspiring my songs and that my higher self was capable of infusing Reiki and healing codes in the songs but now I know this to be true!–and now I know it’s part of my purpose to help others!
I’ll be expanding and adding more songs here and on my websites in the coming months. You can find my debut album of original songs on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, and all worldwide platforms (just search Roxanne Smith. the title is A New Beginning) or better yet please buy and download them from my website: RoxanneSmithMusic.com. Proceeds from my website store go to making more albums!–the angelic realm has helped me write 70 songs of hope and healing, 50 of which are copyrighted and ready to to be made into more albums. I’m excited to share them and perform them on YouTube.
Mostly I’ve been seeing clients in-person for sessions so the music will take time. But as a highly sensitive person and empath I’m always guided where to spend my energy each day. It’s exciting to see what unfolds as I trust the guidance I receive.
This past year has been a year of personal deep inner healing in ways I didn’t even know was possible. You may relate to breaking out of the cocoon stage and you aren’t quite ready to fly ….but you can see it–over the rainbow, the brilliantly colorful future awaits you and is beckoning …but perhaps you are disoriented, not sure how to BE yet because the cocoon stage turned you to mush haha! Be Patient and Trust are the words I keep hearing and all will fall into place step by step.
I’m already feeling it as the Lions Gate energies of 8-8-21 seemed to give me a surge of energy on the 9th that I haven’t felt in a long time . I cleaned and uncluttered my garage that day lol and it wasn’t even on my To Do list. I feel it was symbolic of being the first place I arrive and leave my house daily which tells me to clear out old debris in my life in the mornings and before bedtime to sleep better and have more energy for all the things that I want to do. Sounds great! I’m excited!
I’m hoping all of you sensitive souls out there are experiencing similar growth and expansion of your wings–through insights and inspirations and deep clearing of old wounds to clear the path to your true self and true purpose on the planet. It’s a roller-coaster ride as we follow our joy and trust that our sorrows are temporary and that more joy is just around the corner. Our platform to take off and fly will just appear before us easily and comfortably! I’m counting on it!–I trust and believe!
I turn 60 years old on September 9th and my family has a big celebration planned. I keep telling myself, “It’s just a number”–because it makes no sense that I am that age. How can it be?! I’m a kid at heart and feeling younger and healthier every year so I decided we are going to Disney for my birthday! Yay I’m ignoring the number and will keep acting the age that I feel. 38 lol. Yeah that feels right.😃
Thank you for reading and being part of this community.

Are You Comfortably Numb?
Are You Desiring a Safe Space To Vent Your Deep Emotions and Find Direction and Relief?
Hello Everyone. I hope you are having a good Monday! This virus is bringing up more than just outer struggles about work and socializing, it’s bringing up the necessity to do inner reflection and look at buried beliefs that are keeping people stuck from feeling happy and vital in their lives.
Many people are getting clarity and realizing that they have been numbing themselves out to get by each day. Now they are seeing that they have an opportunity to get more satisfaction out of life by doing some emotional healing. Journaling is a valuable healing tool to help people find their true voice and express their feelings.
A deep satisfaction results from expressing the truth that’s in your soul. If you’d like someone to talk to …to vent to … or to learn how to journal for relief, or just sort out some deep and complex desires for self-actualization and emotional healing, check out my website for more info on a session with me.

Peace and Love,

Reblogging a Channeled Message of Higher Perspective and Hope About the Coronavirus:
Saul audio blog for Saturday March 14th
As you are well aware the Coronavirus pandemic is giving rise to much fear all across the world, while daily life becomes increasingly difficult for most people due to government restrictions on gatherings and travel. Know that Love is the antidote to fear. Fear causes stress, sometimes intense stress, and this places a heavy load on your immune system which can reduce its ability to deal effectively with the wide variety of infections to which it is exposed as you lead your normal daily lives.
Your immune system is individually tailored to suit you, and this is why people, who receive organ transplants or who have to undergo invasive treatments for major diseases, then require to be on various kinds of medications for the rest of their lives, as their immune systems identify what has been implanted as alien and attempt to…

A World Changed- What do We Need to Do?
Sharing this uplifting post from a good friend of mine as we navigate the Covid-19 situation that is upon us all. Sending Love and Light to all of you , Roxanne 😇💖✨
Whether or not you are particularly spiritual, oracle cards can be a fun focus for personal development, and more often than not you’ll find yourself pulling out cards randomly and finding that they relate accurately to issues that are currently at play in your life. Many cards come with little books that offer interpretations, but you’ll likely find ideas present themselves to you as you think about the card, or journal out your thoughts.
Like the rest of the world, I’ve recently been drawn in to the media to keep up to date with the latest COVID-19 developments. This morning I really wanted to get my cards out and connect with Spirit to find out why the virus is happening, and how I can help.
There was me expecting that I could offer channeled wisdom for the collective, when Spirit firmly put me in my place with a wink and…

A New Channeled Angel Message–For Awakening Souls Healing Wounds from Childhood or PTSD.
(These messages are to be shared for all who resonate and are open to receiving spiritual guidance. This includes Empaths, Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), Lightworkers, Spiritually Awakening Souls, Earth Angels, and to all Seekers and Open-hearted souls.
Hello Everyone, I have another channeled angel message for you–a message of Hope From the 12th Dimension!–the Angelic Realm. Before I channeled this message I checked in with each of the Archangels to confirm their presence. This group consciousness angel message is from Archangel (AA) Muriel and 7 other angels who join in for the messages. The 8 Archangels are: Archangel (AA) Muriel (the AA of Empaths), AA Chamuel (Comfort), AA Jophiel (Creativity and Beauty), AA Sandalphon (Grounding and Music), AA Azriel (Supporting Grief, Loss and Transitions), AA Raziel (Divine Magic and Alchemy), AA Uriel (Wisdom), and AA Ariel, (Nature and Animals).
This message will be added my Channeled Angel Messages Page on my blog which has posts of angel messages that I am now posting there weekly or bi-weekly. There you will find all the other messages from the 6 or more Archangel Guides that I have posted since November, 2018.)
Here is the latest message!:
“Dear Ones, We send you so much love and light to cheer you. You may be feeling weary yet again and you are tired of it. Yes, we see and know you are feeling much pain as it comes up to be healed. You may feel abandoned and betrayed by life at times but other times you feel the spark and strength inside your soul that is growing in strength. There is an excitement building as you see that you are stronger than you knew yourself to be and you like what you are seeing.
Sometimes you can’t see it and feel stuck in density and the negative soup of other’s energies. You are seeing tools to rise up and out of your triggered states that do not last very long compared to before. Please give yourselves credit for this. You may think you are going backwards because you are feeling triggered more frequently but you could not have handled these stresses in the past near as well. Look at them as opportunities to heal deep scars that have been dormant until now.
You also are aware that things in your life could be much worse and you know that being grateful shifts you to a state where you can write and meditate and tap into pure love and the angelic realm. This opens the door to your most creative state of co-creating with your higher self and downloading helpful information and insights to guide you to your next steps in life. You know that after you ask a question to the highest guides meant for you, it is best to then pull back and be open for the answers rather than try hard to hear. This takes some time to master and trying auto writing is a good bridge to get to where you feel you are channeling information clearly. It doesn’t matter if you can hear us and your guides directly but the fact that you believe and know what our unconditional love feels like and that you deserve it and it recharges you and refreshes you to hear these messages then that is a wonderful thing.
Keep allowing the love in and knowing it is for you, Dear Ones, who resonate with these messages. Because you are here on the planet to learn to tap into your shining light of goodness and light and know it helps others when you share positive, loving energy. You know you forget how to get into a high vibration sometimes and this is okay because it is just like exercising a muscle, it will get stronger if this is a consistent and even daily tool that you use to cheer yourself up if you ever feel knocked down.
We send you so much love and hugs. You may feel our presence when you have endearing memories pop up of when you helped others or your children or co-workers just by listening and having compassion for their feelings. This is a gift you have that can be overlooked by others as you seem to meld into whoever you are around if you are not consciously creating a mental boundary and shining your light.
Forgive yourself for not always being the strong shining one overtly. People always feel better in your presence even when they actually seem grouchier and may even poke at you unknowingly with insensitive words. You may feel worse after such encounters but realize you have just exchanged energy with the person and they feel better about themselves. This is subtle and many people are not aware. We are only telling you this so that you will be kinder to yourself and release the energy of others and bounce back to your shiny selves when you are alone in your own energies again.
You may find you are getting even more sensitive as your light bodies undergo the transformation of ascension that all awakening souls are going through. Sometimes you feel lonely and other times you feel whole and complete with much to give. This back and forth is a spiral and you are right on track. All light workers and empaths who are awakened to their spirituality are going through this as well and you are not alone. Reach out for support or to groups if you feel guided but please be discerning about any guidance from others because all souls are complex and other’s experience may not be as high a vibration as the angelic realm information that resonate with your extremely sensitive empathic soul. When it is comforting and loving, nurturing, and soothing and allows you to trust in your own guidance then it is a good fit for you.
You are learning to trust this good feeling of self-compassion and we are so proud of you.
We leave you now with hugs and this image of “Love Doves”
in honor of Valentines Day this past month and such holidays of love around the world at this time of year. We send you a giant Valentine Heart that says Be Mine! Lol!
It is good and fun to embrace these positive human traditions if they make you feel good and full of childlike wonder, comfort, and a sense of belonging—Please imagine that we Archangels are all one giant valentine heart of Pure Love and Bliss shining down on you✨💖✨ and we wish you the experience of feeling the LOVE from us all, your soul family. Until next time, AA Muriel, Chamuel, Jophiel, Sandalphon, Azriel, Ariel, Raziel, and Uriel.
I hope you enjoyed this message!
Peace and Love,
On Overcoming Self-doubt: The Story Behind My Songs of Hope and Healing
Hello Everyone! Sharing this Blog Post that was posted exactly 10 years ago… I’m sending comfort, support, and encouragement to all you creative sensitive souls out there who have some self-doubt about sharing your “ART”. Love and Light, Roxanne
Hi everyone. I believe there are many, many highly sensitive people (HSPs) out there that are gifted in so many areas but are suffering from self-doubt from their wounds from childhood and by being misunderstood in our society in general. I want to tell you about how I came to be able to write songs and share them with you in the hopes that this will be helpful or inspire you in some way. My being able to write songs is a story about overcoming self-doubt and finding and expressing my true self. It was my songs that helped me uncover the truth of who I really am and what happened to me in my childhood. The ability to write and sing these songs gave me a connection to something spiritual so that I learned to love myself and stop doubting the gifts and feelings that were within me. Writing these songs turned…

Channeled Angel Message and Energy Update–Welcome New Decade 2020! Happy New Year!
Happy New Year and New Decade, Everyone! I hope everyone is doing well! Today I am sharing a new message I channeled from the Archangel Muriel Team–Comfort and Guidance for all empaths, sensitive souls, and lightworkers who are on a spiritual awakening journey and navigating emotional healing.
“Greetings Dear Ones. Tis a new year and a new Decade! We hope you have renewed energy for the exciting times ahead and we also know you are a little weary and disappointed because you had high hopes and are experiencing more of the same feelings. But if you look closely you will see a difference.
Your highs are higher, with more clarity and freedom and confidence, and the lows come with awareness that they are old layers of old beliefs on the way out of your high vibrating system. All past dense negative imprints must go so that you can more easily do what you came here to do. On some level you know this.
You are strong enough for this challenge. You can do this! And we are with you each step of the way. You can call on us Angels anytime and visualize us as a blanket of comfort or protection or wisdom. Yes wisdom that sometimes what you are feeling is not even yours and you can say that to yourself to assist in these energies moving away from you and clearing your space so that you can recharge in your own loving energies.
Ahhh now doesn’t that feel good imagining that? This is like a muscle that you must practice with exercises often like this: Imagine you are feeling down and tired and overwhelmed and wondering why and then you get the realization and you say this, “These are not even my feelings. They are from elsewhere and I just absorbed them and thought they were mine. I am going to let them go. I release these feelings to be transmuted and dissolved by divine love and light.”
Imagine the negative energy leaving your protective bubble of your own love energies and never coming back. Poof! Done! What a relief! You can do this exercise anytime! We hope this exercise is of great use to you and we are grateful to get you these messages to comfort you through these times of grief for your emotional wounds.
You of the highest light and vibrations, you sensitive souls with the most empathic gifts, you chose very difficult childhoods in order to replicate some horrendous past life experiences that have been stuck in your incarnations. Know that this is your lifetime to heal these wounds and scars once and for all and you have planned your lives well and your higher self is guiding you.
But you must get quiet time alone in order to hear and be able to listen to where you are being guided. Trust that your life is going as planned even if it feels off track. Most likely there is something difficult you are moving through without even knowing that you are moving forward but you are.
Dear ones, you are held and surrounded by our love and support at all times. We can help if you ask us so please always ask. And use pen and paper to access us better. Just write your feelings in a free flowing trusting way without much thought and with an intention to release and you will catch wisdom and insights coming through. You can grow in your intuitive abilities a great deal with this automatic writing process.
We highly recommend this as you want to connect with us and your guides more often and more accurately. You will also find it helpful to look back at your own writing and see wisdom that will help you in what you are currently struggling with. This will help spur you forward to write daily to look forward to these magical serendipitous moments of proof that we really are here and we care and we are helping you through life’s challenges.
Please allow this new decade’s energies to uplift you as a reminder of a fresh start and a clean slate. Think of freshly sliced lemons and a sparkling clean environment that you can create. You may want to declutter your living spaces to match the newness of the energies when you think of it being a brand new decade with spritely high vibration opportunities around every corner.
We hope you see that smiles come to you more easily as we see that you have embraced being a human to a higher degree lately. We see that you have come to see that being a human is a special experience indeed because of the unique blend of beings from other places in the universe that make up the human race.
You see that there are brilliant humans and not so evolved humans of all extremes and intricacies and you have an opportunity to put your own unique stamp on your experience on the planet in your lifetime. You are relying less on psychics and healers to tell you what is the right thing for you next and you are trusting that you have some hand in making the experience on earth as amazing as you are.
You are learning that you can manifest things for yourself when you keep a high vibration. And when you are not able to be in a high vibration because you are grieving about a loss or hardship, you know you are creating a foundation of great value that will be a platform for you to jump start something new and better than you can even imagine right now.
Amidst the hardships you are seeing the diamonds in your life that are forming from the pressure underground and you will get to reap these rewards and riches. Yes, Dear Ones, you are learning to trust and get back to your shining core of love faster than ever before.
Rest when you need it, move your body with exercise when you know it’s time, and shine when the light strikes you. By shining compassion on yourself and others, you will soothe and comfort yourself through the lows and then fly with your wings of sparkling gold light when you feel uplifted to uplift others.
You are here to shine and you are doing a great job! We are so proud of you. If you are experience long periods of hard times, please do not numb yourselves out by avoiding your feelings, you will get through it much faster if you allow yourself to cry and vent in a journal for your eyes only—writing will give you the clarity and insights and when you get through it you will have some deep interesting writing to show for it and this will help you to feel accomplished and productive. Even if it is a private journal it is something very valuable to you that you created—you will grow from reading your own writing as you get a glimmer of who you truly are— your true voice and true self gradually emerge if you keep up this writing daily habit. Writing may not be for everyone but it can be a very useful tool for you gifted empaths who absorb negative energy unknowingly sometimes. It can help you sort out what is your feelings and what isn’t.
We want to leave you with some uplifting wisdom, Dear Ones. Music is a gift for you to lift your spirits. Check out what the other brilliant humans are creating and make a playlist of what moves your soul to new heights. Music is healing and it is a gift to help uplift your soul as you navigate life as a human earth angel.
That is all for now Dear Ones, and we look forward to communicating future messages to you through our dear Roxanne. Goodbye for now. You are loved, Archangel Muriel (The Archangel of Empaths), Archangel Jophiel (Beauty and Creativity), Archangel Chamuel (Comfort), Archangel Raziel (Divine Magic and Alchemy), Archangel Ariel (Nature and Animals), Archangel Sandalphon (Music and Grounding), and Archangel Azriel (Transitions, Grief, and Loss).”

Hope and Comfort For Sensitive Souls With Childhood Wounds On New Year’s Eve
It’s New Years Eve. Are you feeling raw and wanting to numb out? If you have childhood wounds, they often come to the surface on holidays and celebration times. So be very very kind to yourself right now. I’m writing this to remind all of you sensitive souls about utilizing your tools of Extreme Self Care right now and for the next few days. Your inner child has unmet needs that are surfacing so you can be kind, patient, and loving to make up for those times from your past or childhood when your needs were not met. Wounds can be healed but not if they are constantly pushed down, ignored, or numbed. Be the loving person in your life that was not there for you when you were wounded. What would the most loving person you can think of do? Your Higher Self would say,
“Put your feet up and let me get you a warm blanket and some hot tea or soup. You deserve to rest because you have worked so hard and life can be so hard at times. We all make mistakes, and that is how we learn. Be kind to yourself for trying. You have done so well with all of your hardships. I am so proud of you. You have so many gifts to offer the world but be patient with yourself. As you heal and get stronger you will be brave to try new things and learn more about how to be happy and free and attract abundance, good health, and healthy relationships. You deserve to have fun. You will find fun coming to you as you learn to love the broken parts that need tender loving care. In time you’ll be ready. Trust that life is good and inside of you are all the answers that you need to be successful in life. Spend some quiet time journaling and tending to your hurt feelings. Take down the wall of protection and heavy armor and know that you are deserving of love and kindness. I see you and I know you and I care. Everything is going to be all right. You are loved. You are exactly the way you are for a good reason. If you just take some time and connect with me daily, you can hear my message of love and support as you navigate life. Now is a good time to heal and get stronger. Put yourself and your feelings at the top of your to do list. I am here for you whenever you need me. I love you and I will always take care of you. You are never alone.”
Your best friend,
Your Higher Self.
Have a wonderful, magical night and celebrate however your heart and soul desires.
Peace and Love,
I Was Lost But Now I’ve Found Me
Hello Everyone! Happy New Year, Everyone! Happy New Decade! Yay 2020!!! I hope you are doing well. I hope you find hope in my sharing my journey of feeling lost to feeling found. I understand, I care, and I found ways to heal that perhaps can help you too.
10 years ago today I started this blog! It was a new beginning for me as the blog helped me to find my voice as a writer; as a coach, mentor, and spiritual counselor for other highly sensitive souls and empaths with childhood wounds; and just …as a person, a soul, a human being on the planet! I did not realize I had started my blog at the beginning of a decade! I did not realize until yesterday how serendipitous and special it is that I started my blog at the beginning of the previous Decade! Wow exactly 10 years ago! I was 48 then and felt kind of old and yet unaccomplished and green. I am 58 now and I feel younger than I did at 48 …and in fact younger and happier than when I was in my 30s! 2020 vision and clarity is ahead for us all–a new hopeful path is emerging before our very eyes! I invite you to get out your journal or think back to january 2010 and look at how far you have come. Please share your healing journey in the comments below or if you resonate with realizing you started some positive changes or awarenesses in your life in 2010.
I found my true soul’s purpose as a result of writing this blog and an ability to express myself that had long been hidden inside me. When I started I had no idea how importantly the work I did on this blog would impact my life. I remember thinking, if I could just help one other person with what I’ve learned on my journey then this blog would be a success. Such a valuable thing to learn I think because I had low expectations so when the blog gained momentum and had lots of engagement it gave me so much confidence! The success of beginning my career as a life coach on the blog lead me to following my intuition and trusting my own inner guidance at deeper and deeper levels.
I was helping others through sharing my journey through a pen name at first–using my middle name, I was known as Elaine back then. At the height of my coaching career, I then started writing more and more songs, going to open mic nights, met musician friends in my area, and overcame my terrifying fear of singing alone on stage in public. I started performing around Indianapolis and getting paid for it and made an album of original songs that is on all the Worldwide music platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon.
While I deeply loved my blog, my coaching and my clients, my heart was torn in 2 directions. I realized I had to put all my songs under my legal name and until then they had been divided–half were songs about inner child healing under the name of Elaine. When I changed my name on the blog and stopped writing as regularly, the blog audience changed and grew as I changed and grew. Even when I didn’t write for a few years on this blog, the old posts continued to get readers and new followers and I continued to get emails from grateful sensitive souls who felt their childhood wounds had been “seen” and their inner feelings “voiced”.
My journey took a spiritual turn as the intuitive abilities helped me realize many of my songs and blog posts had been “channeled” by me–I realized I was co-creating with the help of my higher self. My soul’s purpose grew to include being an energy healer, and the training and certification I received as a Reiki Practitioner in 2012 was fitting beautifully with my channeling abilities, and I attracted opportunities for office space to do this Reiki work and Intuitive work in Indianapolis. Now, in addition, the music and the Reiki are fitting together as I learn about sound healing and things like Reiki-infused music and music-infused Reiki. It is so amazing to me how life unfolds in ways that amaze but we somehow get glimpses of what could be, yet we don’t know how we can get to our dreams and yet the dreams unfold into yet even better dreams and magical abilities.
We also all have so many unexpected hardships along the way and think we are off track sometimes, but I believe it is these very hardships and side roads that make us stronger–strong enough for the next thing that our higher self has planned for us! The last 2 years have been an upheaval for me, revealing unhealthy patterns in me that I couldn’t see without some shake-ups and re-formulating in some very close relationships.
But it all makes sense now–if you have painful childhood wounds you need to relearn how to bond with people with pure love at the core. I have even more self-compassion for my wounds, even more strength to observe them and release them and grow stronger with each layer of emotional pain from the past that presents itself.
The result is a really strong foundation at my core, an independence and confidence to stand on my own 2 feet, and empowerment that is not codependent on a partner or children, or a role, or achievement in life but in a power of being that is centered, grounded, and wise with knowing that I am worthy of having it all just by being. And that we are all worthy of having it all and I LOVE helping others to get to this same feeling of wholeness and vitality and creative expression.
Whew! What a ride the last 10 years have been! The first 3 years of this blog contain the meatiest, most substantial posts in my opinion so I am going to be reblogging those posts on the day that they were posted 10 years ago as they come up. I will also be posting updates in the present day too interspersed with these older blog posts.
So here is the very first blog post from the first day I signed up for the wordpress site– I was back then just learning to navigate the brand new wordpress world (and with my very first laptop computer too–I was still just learning the computer) at that time–my youngest child was now settled in college.
The first post was lyrics to an original song that expressed the hope I felt at going from “lost” to “found”. Thank you to all of you who follow me and to any of you who have followed me from the very beginning, I am sending you big hugs!!! 💞💞💞I’d love a comment or a hello from you!! Please join me in celebrating my 10 year anniversary of teaching and learning self-compassion through this blog–all the way from Elaine to Roxanne Elaine. I will continue to write here to share my journey to comfort and encourage all who resonate with this community of Hope and Healing. I’m so grateful to all of you who read my blog. Again I THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart and the depths of my soul.
Wishing you a wonderful Happy New Year Celebration!! 🎉🙌 Yay!! It’s 2020!!🤩
A new Beginning for us all.
Sending you comfort, caring, inner peace, love and light,
and Encouragement to Enjoy Life, and Permission to Party!!
Look how far you’ve come!! 😃💃🕺❣️
My very first post, Dec. 30, 2009:
I Was Lost But Now I’ve Found Me
Lyrics by Roxanne Smith
I am strong but they can’t see me
I am wise but they can’t hear me
I am kind but they can’t feel me
I was lost but now I’ve found me
I can see the truth in me
I can feel the love in thee
I can have the strength I lost begin again
Your belief in me makes me free
I am sad and you are there to hold me
I am weak and you are there to guide me
I am scared and you are there to love me
I was lost but now I’ve found me
I can be all that I can be
Overcome the fear they gave me
When all I feel is lost and unaware
You are there to say you care

Holiday Help! Tips For Super Self-Compassion and Lavish Self-Love!
Hello Everyone! I’m sending Love and Comfort to everyone who feels emotional pain right now with the holidays approaching. It’s your wounded “inner child” just needing some extra love from …YOU! Take some time to write/journal from your inner child’s perspective—you deserved to be seen and loved and you did not get it!
Now you can give it to yourself! 💞 You are a gifted, sensitive soul! If you need someone to listen and be a witness, hold space for you as you grieve the losses of an unhappy childhood, I can help. Just reach out to truevoicelifecoaching.com. But It is not my intention to sell services right now but to just purely give comfort to those who need it!
Please know you are loved from above and you have a guardian angel sending you insights to help you right this minute. Maybe it is your guide that is inspiring me to share this message so that you will see it! 😇 There is so much hope because LOVE heals and you are pure love that’s still learning how to flow. We all are! You are not alone.
I hope that you will feel free to do what makes your soul feel comforted with no apologies. Having a good cry can do wonders to clear it all out if you haven’t allowed yourself this luxury. Permission granted to release all your despairing feelings that have been held inside. I’m always amazed how much better I feel after a good hard cry! It’s always quicker than I think it will be too! What’s life for anyway if we can’t be REAL, right?!
We all need comfort sometimes and some of us need it more than others. Often the most gifted, creative souls feel the most misunderstood and so can’t find the way to share their gifts with the world. Remember the Beatles song HELP—it’s a universal human necessity to reach out for help. We all need help sometimes.
Comforting and guiding those who are doing their inner child healing work is my purpose—through my songs, through my Reiki, and through my session work with clients. I feel so blessed that through my own healing journey I discovered the joy of helping others find their creative flow and wholeness again.
So I am sending you love and wishing you a Holiday that is rich in self-compassion and comfort!! You deserve it! Along with you favorite select food indulgences, take an extra heaping helping of Lavish Self-Love, and Super Self-Compassion—(I know that you are the opposite of selfish in general as you tend to put everyone else’s needs before your own. It’s time for that people-pleasing to stop and for your own healing to go to the top of your to-do list. No more doing things out of obligation that drain your precious energy). Yes, this message is meant for YOU! ✨😍✨
So in conclusion, I want to tell you that I am thinking of you all and wishing you a Thanksgiving weekend filled with love and all of your favorite things! Think of this blog community as your soul Family who knows and appreciates you best and always will!
Sending heartfelt hugs, lavish love, and warm wishes of caring comfort,
P.S. Oh I just decided to add this. 😁 Here’s my Thanksgiving Song–Original song entitled “I’m Grateful”. I just released this video of my debut “live” performance of this song yesterday. I hope you enjoy it. AND below that I’m also including a video of my son and I singing together on a Christmas song that I wrote–it’s silly (and was recorded 5 years ago) but it comes with my (our 😊) deepest love and blessings to cheer up anyone who needs a boost over the holidays. We both still love to watch it. I hope you do too! (The lyrics to both songs are visible in the description boxes of the videos if you watch them on the YouTube channel–just click the “YouTube” at the bottom of these videos that appears after you press play and it will take you there, then click “show more” under the video to see the lyrics…)
I’d love to hear from you! Please comment below❣️💫🦋💗😃
A Healing Poem for Sensitive Souls with a Narcissistic Mother on 11-11.
Hello Everyone! Many sensitive, and empathic souls and clients are having childhood wounds arise to the surface to be healed. It can be a very painful experience. It’s also an opportunity to heal and become stronger. I hope this poem I wrote recently is helpful, uplifting, and supportive. If you resonate, please leave a comment. Welcome!
YOU WERE NEVER LOVED, MY DEAR (Healing Shame From Childhood Wounds) By Roxanne Elaine Smith
When you had a narcissistic mom
Where’s the next hit coming from
Not a hit with fist or hand
But words and eyes that punch and land
Devastating to your soul
Nothing solid to take hold
No mirror to see your worth
No smiles and comfort so you search
You search for reasons, blame yourself
Shame and doubt instead of stealth
It robs you of the truth and time
You were sweet and so sublime
You were shining, curious love
Sent to earth from up above
But chose the hardest path to start
A childhood starved from feeling part
Everywhere you reached was blocked
So you gave up and heart was locked
Trust too much or not enough
Attracting all similar stuff
Until you realize the pattern here
You were never loved, my dear
Start from scratch and loving you
Oh it is so hard to do
At first because the triggers are
Relieving painful trauma jars
Shocking you right to your core
“How did I survive Oh Lord”
You didn’t! No you gave up YOU
And turned into a mask not true
Obedient and needy so
People-please and perfection oh
Trying oh so many things
Until your true voice finally sings
But shame comes up with every truth
The pattern hidden from your youth
Every time you were you, you were shamed
Have to get YOU back again
Ignore the shame and keep on moving
Rise above shame and keep on grooving
Yell at shame, you are not mine
Dance out shame, I am just fine
Shame keeps coming every time
Hiding doesn’t heal the crime
Only way is to see the child
Inside the parents who went wild
Spilling out their pain on you
Everything it was not true
You were perfect whole and right
Their fear and anguish like a blight
They felt safe because of you
Your light it was so bright it’s true
Not fair of course you deserved the world
You knew that you could heal and unfurl
Figure it all out you would
And love yourself just as you should
And finally learn strong boundaries
And attract those loving hercules
Those strong people, inner strength
Like you they’ve been put up to the brink
The death of soul and now awake
They search for tribes to quell and quake
Masterful and sensitive
They forgive and give and give and give
And you know you are one of them
And renewed hope on journey stems
Trying listening within
Trusting that love is what went dim
Self compassion is your chore
As shame returns with each great score
Reducing size or is it growing
Heal emotions and new knowing
Center, grounding, peace of mind
Solid forming, still maligned
Defensiveness and anger flare
But forgiving quicker in thin air
Believing in the moment’s peace
That’s the truth not all the fleece
Still confusing childhood wounds
Where’s the love-so many moods
Why the deep and painful purge
Feel relief when follow urge
Writing helps you flow it out
The truth is innocence about
All of it you chose but why
More than you can fathom, sigh
Others seem to simply thrive
Private hell they do deny
Good to have access to love
Reach for heaven up above
But also know you are whole and kind
Lovely you, you shine, shine, shine
Then loved ones blame—it all comes back
Another painful self attack
Oh the grief you must allow
The child must cry it out oh wow
Will the tears they ever stop
When your happy bubble popped
Self-reliant muscle test
You are getting strongest yet
See yourself that child hugged
Held and cherished sweetest mug
Smiles and happy to see you
Healing all that you’ve been through
It’s okay to cry a lot
Over things that most forgot
Disappointment to your core
Life goes on with all the sores
Want them all to go away
Triggers say hello today
Do not put it all on you!
Bask in love all the day through
When you find a sea of pain
That is someone else’s train
Let them drive on their own track
Do not let them take a snack
Send them love and move along
You know how you are so strong
You do so much for others
Time to be your own best mother
Nurture, comfort, love your soul
You are here to Rock n Roll
Everything is now alright
You are purely Love and Light

High Expectations? New Tools For Sensitive Souls’ Healing Journeys.
Hello Everyone! I haven’t written for a while because I’ve been so busy just observing this emotional roller coaster ride of the last couple months—it’s been hard to put into words! It has propelled me into journaling more to get clarity and as always when I write I am able to access a higher perspective of “what the heck is going on now”! 😳🙏😆Haha! I’ve learned a few things and so I feel ready to share some of the positive things to give all of you sensitive souls on this spiritual journey a boost to feel better about EVERYTHING!
What a roller coaster ride! By this I mean Ups and Downs and Curves and Surprises and Shocks! Can you relate? But at the end of a roller coaster ride at an amusement park, the end of the ride comes with a slowing down and a smooth safe feeling until it comes to a stop and you get off and everyone is all smiles and Gee that was fun. Well, in general I mean haha, and only because you knew it was temporary—it was a ride you took by choice and it was a safe way to experience a thrill and know it would be over soon.
Compare that to this incarnation of life on this planet. As sensitive souls, we are highly evolved divine beings here to help, but we have expectations of smooth sailing and love and abundance. I really think it is these expectations that contribute to us getting stuck in the lows on the roller coaster that we experience.
All of this is coming up for me to talk about I believe because of this last full moon on October 13-yesterday! If you are like me you may have noticed that you are very sensitive to cosmic changes to the planet and Full Moons and New Moons etc.. I am not very educated in astrology but I find myself searching for YouTube videos to explain what’s going on cosmically at certain times when I’m feeling out of balance and sure enough it is a full moon or a solar flare or something like this causing our distress and it all resonates and gives a sense of relief.
I get some reassurance from the information I watch or read from elsewhere but often times I am searching and don’t find what I need to feel inner peace—then I am forced to write and then I realize as I connect to my higher self, my inner wisdom, my spirit team, my angels, the Universe, God, whatever you want to call “IT”.
I am then reminded that all my answers for my own inner peace can be found “within”. I know this but why do I keep forgetting it? Looking for outside validation has been ingrained in us as humans on this planet and we all feel this—trying to fit in and feel understood by other humans—wanting a tribe or even one other person who understands us and makes us feel reassured and comforted that we are OKAY and that what we are feeling is OKAY and that there is hope and that everything is going to be OKAY.
This neediness we feel is understandable—as highly sensitive, compassionate, evolved souls we are awakening spiritually but we are straddling 2 worlds. We are trying to make it in the 3D world and pay our bills etc. and also looking at the higher perspective of the 5D spiritual world for deeper meaning and understanding of why we are here, keeping our vibration high, and living in the moment to access the unconditional love that we have resonated with as Yes, This is it! All is well! We want that feeling everyday, all the time, every morning when we wake up.
But what I am understanding is, when we wake up in the morning with horrible dread and feeling bad about being here on the planet we need to observe this as information and not as our current truth. As divine beings, we have often been astral traveling in our sleep. We love to be in the higher angelic realms where we are from evidently—it’s all Love and Light there all the time! 😇 😁 So when we come back into our bodies and wake up as a human on the planet, the densest negative energies, often from our childhoods or possibly past lives come up to the surface so that we can see that these energies are there and are just ready to be “released”.
We are strong and powerful divine beings with love and light as our true nature but when we were born we didn’t know this so these wounded parts of ourselves are taking longer to heal then we “expected”. If you had a narcissistic parent then you were unloved and had unmet needs day in and day out for years and years and so you have many layers of of small hurts and false beliefs about yourself that need reparented and comforted one by one. That may be discouraging to hear that it is going to take longer to heal than you expected but here is the good news. If you observe the big bad emotion you wake up with as just “information” about your past rather than your present truth you can transmute it in minutes!
First, describe the feeling and label it! What is this? Is it shame, dread, hopelessness, anxiety? Then you do the opposite of avoiding it, or believing it, or numbing it out by keeping busy—you go towards it and you write about it in your journal and you have compassion for yourself about it.
Or if you are already versed in this healing process you go right to a positive affirmation to retrain the neurons in your brain to go a more positive route. You recognize this bad feeling is your inner critic and not the truth. It is your survival “false” self that absorbed the bad feelings from others around you not knowing they weren’t your feelings. After all you were just a tiny child and had to believe what you were being “fed” to survive and to get along with your caretakers who didn’t SEE you for the gifted soul you were.
Most of you know this but if you are like me right now you are still surprised that you are still dealing with these long healed issues—especially in the last few months. It is my understanding that the last remnants of these layers are possibly the most painful and most deeply ingrained and you are strong enough now to finally look at them, acknowledge that it was even worse than you thought. So give yourself even more kindness, compassion and comforting reparenting than you ever have before. Extreme extreme self care (double extreme 😃) is in order whenever you wake up feeling bad!! Be nicer to yourself instead of harder to yourself. After all isn’t that what your narcissistic parent or bully said to you when they ran out of patience with you—they said “what’s wrong with you—why aren’t you over this yet—you should be feeling better by now—you are not doing as well as you thought”. See? These things you say to yourself are judgements you are making just like bullies or abusers did which is the opposite of the unconditional love and comfort you deserved back then and deserve now.
Sometimes it isn’t until we get out of our heads and start writing onto paper that we are even realizing we are beating ourselves up just like “they” did (if you had caretakers who maybe even did the best they could but were needy themselves so they didn’t have the patience that you needed as a highly sensitive soul who was sensitive for a very good reason.)
So now it is up to you. To KNOW you are pure love and light and when you wake up feeling bad you are to lovingly cleaning away the false residue, the past debris, that is covering up your beautiful brilliant lamp of love and light. You now have some more tools in your toolbox to lift yourself back up to where you belong.
Joy is your birthright and you are doing a great job figuring out how to shine what is rightfully yours every moment that you can. Be nicer to yourself when you feel bad not harder on yourself. You are training your brain to go positive quicker and quicker when you get better and better at replacing the doubts negative core beliefs with positive affirmations. You can do it! You are pure love and light.
Being a human is extremely complex! Be patient with this healing journey that you are on! You may be a sensitive soul who seeks safety and inner peace but you are also a tough warrior with new boundaries to take on this challenge of transmuting darkness into light on planet earth. You chose to come here because you knew you could be successful at finding your true voice and true self and shining your true light.
Just being here on the planet you emanate this light and love energy and it uplifts others who need it. You are making a difference just by being here. So relax and be patient with yourself. It takes time and there is plenty of time for all the things you want to do. Self-compassion and self-care is always time well spent.
Sensitive souls, I am so glad you are here on the planet with me. You make the planet a wonderful place to be. If we join forces we can move mountains. Thanks for reading and please reach out if you’d like one-on-one coaching. My email is email@example.com. Sometimes just having someone to see us and listen to our feelings with understanding can be so healing. I also offer distance Reiki and intuitive guidance during sessions as well—you design the sessions the way your heart desires.
I’m adding a link to my latest YouTube Video here of a recent performance of my original song, We Are Here To Love. The lyrics to this song just flowed out of me from beginning to end with no changes—it was magical. I feel now is the perfect time to share these lyrics with you.
Lyrics: -We Are Here To Love-
Trudging through the past debris, finding sparks of light
Holding onto highest hopes, knowing love is right
Seeing through the doubters’ eyes, knowing those above
Want us to believe and know, time is made for love
Chorus: We are here to love, We can fly with wings of time
When we feel the past, We must rise above and shine
We must rise above and shine, We must rise above and shine
Reminded who we are by pushing past the ego’s call
Kindness to ourselves is all we need to break the wall
Pieces still fall down on us, don’t misunderstand
Keep the rays of light around and hold each other’s hand
Chorus: We are here to love…
Verse not included in this video performance:
(Power from the latest move unearth’s a tender spot
Confusing inner child takes stage, plays out what we forgot
Kindness is in order now soothing wounds so raw
New aliveness, strength abounds, braving what we saw
Chorus:.. We Are Here to…)
Bridge: Learning to be still and yet, adversity remains
But even when we think we’ve stalled, we’ve unraveled many chains
Working hard it seems we have not played to really live
But underneath we somehow gain renewed hearts to give
Chorus: We are here to love…
Have faith and know that even in the hardest grief of times
You are loved and cheered about, so take in all the signs
Relish in the life you have, grateful for the rest
All will see the loveliness, you are a force for goodness
Chorus: We are here to love… You must rise above and shine… shine… shine You must rise above and shine. (slow end)

Until next time, With Love and Light,
About my Reiki Energy Healing Sessions–Distance Reiki is Available too!
Hi Everyone! “What’s this Reiki I keep hearing about?! Sounds very woo woo to me.” I understand if you feel this way. I used to feel that way too. Life has a way of getting us ready to open up to new concepts that can help us. You may have heard that everything is energy. It’s true! Sometimes we have energy blockages in our bodies so our natural self-healing abilities get “Stuck”. I happen to have a gift of being able to feel energy. Through training, experience, and this gift I am able to be a vessel through which healing energy flows through and into the body—this helps to get the client’s energy flowing again where there were blockages. The results from a 30 minute reiki session can vary from instant pain relief, to feeling deep relaxation and better sleep, to a more subtle feeling of a shift inside of feeling seen and cared for with physical ease showing up in the days ahead. The results vary per person and can even continue to show up for up to 2 weeks. I always tell clients to drink lots of water and be very kind to yourself in the days following each treatment. You don’t have to be spiritual or even believe in it for it to work—you’ll see results if you are just open to your own bodies ability to heal being accelerated by the Reiki session. At the minimum you’ll feel relaxed, rejuvenated, recharged, and reset while underneath it all your body’s energy is starting to flow in big healthy ways. 30 minute sessions are $65. Once a month sessions can get you to a continued flowing state which will lead you to better health, energy, and optimum vitality!
So just reach out if you are interested in a session. It might be just what your body/mind/ and soul is ready for! Indianapolis location is:
Dragonfly 360 Yoga & Wellness phone# is 317-818-1800.
Distance Reiki sessions are available!! My email is Hopesinger11@gmail.com.
