Presented by Jennifer Page

PageClarity is Power. Jennifer Page has felt this all her life. As a child she was uncomfortable around most people, so she found herself frequently alone to converse with the angels, guides and elementals. With the constant inner nudging that there was more to life than the obvious, she began questioning the reality presented to her asking for guidance and clarity on her life path. Blessed with a family that acknowledged her sensitivities, she was able to cultivate a trust in what others could not perceive. It took many years to become comfortable sharing her intuitive insights.

She is now an intuitive reader with over 30 years of experience with an international clientele, a Reiki Master Teacher for over 25 years, and certified in hypnosis and NLP.
Jennifer believes that within each of us is a place that holds the answers to all of our questions, loves unconditionally, respects ourselves as well as our fellow earthlings, and has the power to live a life of joy. Her favorite saying is from Jean-Luc Picard: “Everything is impossible, until it is not.”

Please email your questions or experiences you would like clarity on or to share with Jennifer to Jenniferpage22@gmail.com.

December 23, 2016 – Why do I always feel depressed during the holidays?

Each year I ponder this, as I frequently find myself feeling the same way. The more I have come to understand how I feel, the more I am able to enjoy the holidays. I offer these insights in hope they help.

Everyone has a right to their own philosophy and to believe what they choose. I do truly believe this. This being said, I remember as a child hiding in the closet, crying to Jesus about how sorry I was that people were behaving badly on his birthday. I remember asking him to please help them remember what he wanted for us; to simply love and honor each other.

When I start to feel this way, I go out of my way to be kinder to those I find to be unkind. I attempt to be more forgiving to those that do not realize that they are creating reasons to be forgiven!

Sometimes it is the mundane stress of being forced to buy gifts that you cannot afford and you don’t even know if they will like or appreciate the gift.

A few years ago my family started a new tradition. Instead of giving to each other (as my mother frequently says, “How much stuff does a person need?”), we give to others who are in need. If we cannot afford to give during the holidays, we give when we can. If we do give to each other it has become something that we have made or something that may be significant to our heritage. When I am with good friends over the holidays, we thank each other for the gift of friendship. No material gifts are needed.

Eliminate as much stress as you possibly can. If it is not something you enjoy, and it really is optional, then simply do not do it!

Whatever you choose to do, please keep the magic alive in your heart, your belief in miracles, and the power you have to create them.

November 21, 2016 – When I am around angry and argumentative people I start to become more negative. How can I stop that from happening?

I believe I understand. I grew up empathetic. I can feel physically ill when I am around sick people, or as if all is lost when I am around negative people…but only if I allow it to now. I will share some of the tips I have learned on my journey.

I created a “ritual” of my own. I offer mine in hopes it helps you find one of your own. Life can be busy. If I do not have time to do this before I leave the house, I do it in the car.

I simply take a couple of deep breaths to center. I then remind myself how strong and clear thinking I am. I tap into my inner power, that place where all things are possible. If this is challenging for you in the beginning, it will become easier with practice. To start, simply relax and allow yourself to melt into a sense of calm. I frequently focus on my inner peace and truth.

Continue to focus and immerse yourself completely into that amazing feeling as it becomes as large or larger than life. I may visualize this energy as a golden iridescent color. (Choose the color that is right for you.)

As you enter the world, pay attention to your surroundings. Become aware of the individuals that are angry or argumentative. Notice how you feel in their presence. Pay attention to your thoughts and feelings. Recognize the difference between your thoughts and feelings and theirs. If you start to feel strange, tired, discouraged, or negative: acknowledged that these feelings are not yours. Reject them. They only have as much power as you give them. Remember who you are.

Recognize who the people are that affect you the most and question those relationships. This may sound cold; it is possible to one day wake up and realize that we are no longer surrounded by people who think the same way we do or support our goals. It may be either time to make changes or time to separate yourself for a while.

This may take practice; however, I am confident that you can and will achieve this goal. You may even discover that your energy influences these negative people into choosing to be more positive and peaceful too!

October 26, 2016 – How do I keep my home clear of the negative energies that seep in from the outside world?

When I was living alone I would start with a sage smudge stick at the farthest end of my home and permeate every corner from ceiling to floor with smoke. I would work my way to the front door, open the door, and send the unwanted energy out to a dormant state. I use the term “dormant state” to prevent it from causing havoc for anyone else.

Now I am living with someone that is sensitive to smoke so I use other methods. I have a Tibetan bowls that I play – same method as above. (I would like to know the difference between a Tibetan bowl and a crystal bowl for clearing. If anyone has both, please let me know.) So far, I have not felt the need to open the door to let the energy out. It seems to simply…dissipate. I also use Reiki, burn candles, or simply walk around and say prayers that feel comfortable. If you like working with colors, or are good visualizing; focus on the color you would like to fill your home until you see, feel, and/or know its presence.

After a few times you will begin to feel, see, or know, when there is still unwanted energy. You will be able to sense where the energy “sits” and you may find yourself pausing in specific areas of your home. It is like anything else; It may take practice to be as in-tune as you would like to be.

If you would like more information on this topic or have any questions, please email me and I would be happy to go into more detail. (No tricks; no fees!)

September 19, 2016 – “Why do you feel there is so much hate and anger in the world?

Looking at it from one angle we may be able to put some blame on our political leaders and our wanna- be political leaders. Some could blame the media for what and how they choose to report. Some could blame religious organizations. Some could blame anything that attempts to have us focus on our differences instead of our similarities or that point the proverbial finger at a specific culture or belief system.

From another angle, hate and anger are cousins of fear and ignorance. The more time they spend together the stronger they become. So let’s decide not to be divided by these characters, and separate them from our lives.

When I am weak, overcoming ignorance, especially when I can be a “conspiracy theorist,” can be challenging. I may then get fearful about the truth I found, or that the truth is actually worse than the truth I found….it may become a viscous cycle with its own harmful side-affects.

In addition to our own personal challenges of overcoming these four villains, we have those around us behaving on their personal battles. Fear has become an airborne virus and if our emotional immune system is weak, we become susceptible. Somewhere in all this mess we forgot how to respect ourselves and other. Add in the elements from the first paragraph and… hate and anger are born.

Time to own our own words, actions, choices. Responsibility belongs to all of us to end this. When we focus on a winner; we focus on a loser. Good vs Evil. Who defines “good” and who defines “evil”? Black and white can melt and everything becomes a shade of gray.

Promise yourself when you wake up in the morning that you are going to Love the moment. Be grateful for the wonderful blessings you do have in your life. When that is challenging, do something that gives someone else a reason to be grateful.

July 12, 2016 – Time: Part III Control

When you are going through a challenging time in life, consciously moving to a better time and space can be beneficial. You have the power to tap into the clarity and powerful feeling you experienced at that time and bring it into the here and now when you need it; when you choose to.

If you cannot remember a better time in your life than what you are currently experiencing, you can keep the focus of a better time and your mind will find it. Where does it find this time? Perhaps it is from a past life; perhaps it is from a parallel life; or perhaps it is from a future time, or perhaps even a future time in your current life that you are now creating. The real question is: Does it really matter where you are drawing upon as long as it helps you to get back on track with your life and propels you into the life you were meant to lead?

There is no reason, other than choice, to allow past experiences to affect how we are behaving today. We can consciously choose to let go of the baggage from the past; send it back to the past! If we can change how we are experiencing the present moment by remembering how powerful we are, reclaiming the clarity and emotional strength that we have already experienced to overcome challenges and obstacles, why would we not?

Time is a funny thing. One minute can feel like thirty; yet thirty minutes can feel like one.  Every moment of the day belongs to you. Give yourself permission to own how you will experience it.

May 30, 2016 – Part II: Time: Illusion  

Illusion:

You are driving in your car, window rolled down; fresh air is caressing your face and blowing your hair. The smell of spring is air. The sun is half hiding behind a cloud. The sky is that perfect shade of blue that you identify with as being a “nice day outside.” Trees on the edge of the highway are different hues of green. Some trees are full of leaves while others are just beginning to bud.

Behind you is home; ahead of you is work. You know that it takes approximately 35 minutes to get from point A to point B. There is nothing you can do to control traffic; so you slip into the time you have allowed and just experience the Now. You are focused only on the experience of driving. In synch with the traffic; you automatically slow down when you observe a car attempting to pull into your lane. As you do so you notice the delicacy of the wild flowers in the ditch next to you; sadly there are also cigarette butts.

You are in the moment; experiencing only what is taking place Now.

A song comes on the radio. You turn the volume up and begin singing along. Instantly you are transported through time. Your facial expression changes, your breathing shifts as you are once again experiencing that awkward moment when your noses are colliding, palms are sweating, you become worried your breath smells like barbeque potato chips. The next thing you know you can feel arms slowly embracing you. Shivers run up and down your spine. Your lips are suddenly smashed against the lips of the person you thought was the love of your life. That magical first kiss. Your mind, body and spirit just experienced it all again; as if it was happening Now.

The song ends; you are pulled back into this Now; and you realize you have reached your destination.

One moment you were completely focused on the experience of the drive to work. The next moment you were disconnected from your current reality and all your senses were reliving an experience from the past. Your subconscious mind took over your actions and you arrived at work safely. For a few moments you were existing in more than one space in time; the past and the present took place at the same “time.” The drive to work was very real; and so was that first kiss.

Next: Part III: Control

April 19, 2016

Question: I appreciate the way you simplify things. I was wondering if you could please help me understand “Time.” I am still trying to understand “All time is now.” I am lost on going to the past, move to the future, parallel lives and even past lives. The more I try to understand, the more confused I get.

Response: Thank you for the compliment and I will do my best!

The concept of “Time,” as simple as it sounds, can be complicated. There is a lot to learn for all of us (unless you have conquered Quantum Physics …. or you are Sheldon from the Big Bang.) That being said, I will share with you my belief/understanding of time.

Part I: Exploring how our beliefs of Time were formed.

Growing up we learn we must live in Time. We have a Time to get up, a Time to go to bed, a Time to eat, a Time to play, even a Time when we know our parent(s) will be home from work. We learn that our favorite TV shows are only on at a specific Time.

We go to school and discover the boundaries of Time. If we are not at the bus stop before a certain Time we will miss the bus. If we are not in the classroom, in our seats, before the bell rings, there are consequences.

We identify unique sensations with specific Time frames. For instance, bedtime on Sunday night may have a different experience than bedtime on a Friday night. Monday morning at 8:00 in the morning may feel different than Friday afternoon at 4:55 in the afternoon.

We learn to budget our Time. What Time do you need to leave for work? What Time do you need to wake up to be ready to leave for work? What Time do you need to go to bed to get the amount of sleep you need to get up, get ready, and go to work?

Or the dreaded: “The clock says 2:37….if I have to get up at 6:00…that means that if I can get back to sleep right now I will have 3 hours and…. 23 minutes before I have to get up.

We learn that Time may appear to move faster or slower depending on our circumstances.

One of my favorites: Twice a year we are forced to change time! One moment our clocks state that it is midnight and then a powerful force tells us to change the time on our clocks to 11:00 and Poof! We have a bonus hour! Or Poof! An hour was taken away from us!

We continue to grow within the limitations of Time until we may become so controlled by Time we are virtually living in what Stuart Wilde called “Tick Tock.”

Stay Tuned: Part II: Time: Illusions and Control

March 30, 2016

Question: “It seems that over the past 4 or 5 weeks I am constantly put in situations that are requiring me to speak my voice, defend my stance, or advocate for someone who is not able to do so. Why is this happening so much for me right now? I’m usually an easy going, happy free spirit. All this battling is wearing me out!” 

ResponseI believe there are many reasons why this is happening and some are beyond our current understanding. That being said, when I do readings I frequently find patterns in what people are experiencing. One thing that I have noticed is that there appears to be a deeper line that separate the individuals that are attempting to do good things and keep their conscious awareness about them and those that have been overcome with a sense of fear and lack, than there has been. The media, drug companies and many others are helping to promote these beliefs. (How aware they are of this is up for debate.) So much so that some individuals who are not used to questioning “those in charge” are sinking deeper into these illusions. Therefore, it somehow has become acceptable, to a portion of mankind, to take advantage of others if it allows them to better themselves. I can honestly say that I do not believe that all of these people are fully aware that their actions are not acceptable to others. It has become a “survival of the fittest” mentality; one that separates us, divides us; and they feel their actions are reasonable.

 

From your question, it is clear that you are an individual that is more consciously aware. You realize that one person’s actions can have a strong impact on another person’s experience. In the bigger picture, we are all one. Most of us are just doing the best we can with what we have. When we hurt someone, we know that this hurt will impact others and, even if only on a subconscious level, ourselves. When we give to others and bring joy, this joy radiates out; they feel it, we feel it, and those around feel it.

 

When we stand up for ourselves and others that are unable to stand up for themselves, even if it appears that there was no impact, at least a seed was planted. Who knows how that seed will grow and who all it will affect in the future. That little action has the power to transform lives and create a change more powerful than we may dream.  

 

On the topic of defending your stance, I would like to share something with you. I have found that there are people that enjoy learning from others and expanding their awareness; and others… not so much. To put it simply, some people are so deep in their own realities that they cannot comprehend what others are talking about, especially if it is a subject or a topic that they have not considered. Their realm of possibilities is smaller, or as some would say: their minds are closed. I sometimes say they are wearing their Cloak of Illusion. They just can’t understand what you are saying, no matter how you word it! The only outcome is frustration and exhaustion.

 

In reverse, I can listen to people and observe their choices and I cannot figure out how they reasoned their way to that choice being their best plan of action. Then I realize that I don’t necessarily want to think the way they do!

 

It has taken me years, but now when I find myself in a conversation and I realize that we are planets apart in our thoughts and beliefs, I just listen; sometimes sad for their inability to realize the greatness available to them; sometimes searching for something that I may learn from them. But mostly I am sad because this is a person I cannot have a “real” conversation with; and then I just…walk away….and sometimes… I just keep walking.

March 2016

Thank you to everyone for reading the Door Opener and submitting questions! This is the first question I received. I will continue to answer questions as they are received.

Question: “I am finally admitting that I have psychic abilities. It is uncomfortable for me to tell people what I get, even my family. Sometimes I even feel sick at my stomach. I am being told I need to take classes and get certifications. But every time I start looking I just get confused! Where should I start?”

Response: Very good question indeed! You are not alone. There are so many classes, certifications, etc, etc, etc. out there is can be challenging to decipher what is what.  So let’s start at the beginning:

You are the beginning. Trust yourself. Trust your own guidance. You do not need to take any classes. You do not need any certifications. Don’t let anyone tell you different.

Actually, I would suggest that you not take any classes right now.

I believe that sometimes we don’t know what to do because it is not time to make a decision yet. When/if the time is right for you to take a class or get a certification, you will just know it is something you need to do and the right teacher will be there to guide you. I promise – you will know. Just let it happen.

This is what I wish someone would have told me in the beginning: Just because you have psychic insights does not mean that you have a responsibility to help solve mankind’s problems. It can be a heavy responsibility in the beginning when you are trying to figure it all out. Don’t let anyone push you in any direction you are not comfortable going.

I would also like to address your being physically ill when you share information. It may appear as a negative thing, but I think that feeling in your stomach could be a positive thing. Listen to your stomach. I believe you are trying to tell yourself something. Listen to that guidance. At the same time I am not saying that anything is wrong in the guidance that you are offering people; perhaps the person is not ready to hear what you have to say. Perhaps that person needs to experience something and without it he/she will not end up on the path they really need to be on or meet people they need to meet.

It can be challenging to know when to share the clarity you receive. If I need to share something with someone that has not asked, I have asked that the information comes to me three different times in different ways. This is my method even today. Loving unconditionally means we sometimes need to step back and allow them to make choices on their own, even after they have heard what we have to say.

Spend time right now just getting to know that new part of you that you have learned to accept. It’s like a new friend. Center yourself, disconnect from the outside world and listen to what you have to say to yourself. Then see where your journey takes you.

January 2016

Something clicked inside of me when I became aware that there was a real metaphysical world that existed outside of my own little reality. According to Webster; metaphysics is defined as “…a reality beyond what is perceptible to the senses; relating to things that are thought to exist but that cannot be seen.” When I met other individuals that could see or perceive that which Webster claimed could not be; life became less of a struggle. Light shined on my hidden world and clarity was mine. I soon discovered a new sense of power within me as it became acceptable for me to be me.

It took me the first twenty some years of my life to learn how to consciously choose my words. I needed to decipher what would be acceptable to share with whom and where others drew their line of non acceptance. For those of you who can relate; you know that people have a tendency of moving that line periodically and it can take a lot of energy keeping up!

For instance; there were few individuals I could tell that they had a loved one that had passed next to them. I observed adults making choices that were going to lead to heartbreak and there was nothing I could say or do that would persuade them.

By the time high school came around it became my goal to isolate myself from my classmates as much as I could. Telling my friend that the “love of her life” was cheating; without any proof… you can imagine how that blew up. I worked three part time jobs to keep myself busy and “out of trouble.”

This is just a glimpse of my past. I have also had experiences with angels, guides, those who have passed from this life, past lives or parallel lives, various meditation techniques, energy work, and more. Along the way I have earned various certifications.

I am sure there are individuals out there that experienced the same or worse than I have. I am very grateful to the individuals that guided me on my empowering journey of self acceptance and assisted me on how to utilize my skills to benefit myself and others. I would like the honor of doing the same for you.

Email your questions or experiences you would like clarity on to Jenniferpage22@gmail.com. The identity of the individuals submitting questions will be kept anonymous unless requested otherwise. Please share this with anyone you feel would benefit!
