Subject: Raven Update 1/30/14

Hey Guys, This morning has been a nightmare. I have always come to you when I needed words of wisdom, and I could use some of that right about now. A woman that I know (you do not know her, as she is someone I know on a personal level, and of course for privacy reasons, would never tell you who she is or in what capacity I know her from) left me an email today that has absolutely rocked our world and left John and I completely devastated and shaken. John came downstairs all ready to go to work this morning, and after he saw that I was in tears, read the email for himself, and began crying so hard that it made my heart break seeing what it did to him as well. Just watching him cry that deeply, loudly, and so completely, had us both a mess. He actually called in to work and said that he could not make it for personal reasons (something we don't have the luxury of doing, as he does not have any days left to him that are paid, because of all the days he has had to take off work due to my battle with cancer).

I know that some of you will feel this is just superstition and to ignore it (oh, how I wish we could) , but those of you who have abilities such as I have, won't shrug it off so easily, and might know why we are so devastated at the moment. Since I was a child, I have had some ability to see things or know things before they happen, and most of the time, I am right on the money. I know who it is when the phone rings before I even see the caller ID. When John was selling a townhouse that he once owned years ago, it was put on the market for $199,000, but at the table with the realtor, I suddenly said it would sell for $224,00 and she smiled and said, wouldn't that be nice, but it's rather doubtful my dear. It went into a bidding war and sold months later for $224,000. She couldn't even look at me across the table at closing. I guess I spooked her a little, but stuff like this has been happening to me for years.

I have not seen my own death or anyone else's thank God, which is the least the good lord could spare me from knowing. I've been fighting so hard to turn things around and make it despite the odds. My Oncologist always tells me that he knows that God is keeping me around for a reason and he has never made me feel as if he is secretly hiding the fact that he knows I am going to drop dead at any moment (with what I can do with this power, which I do possess, I think that I would have at least felt that by now-if he was being insincere). In addition, and on the flipside of things, most Oncologists (not all) are not telling people how long they have anymore because it can be self fulfilling for a person to know. It's like setting off a bomb in that person and it's set to go off in the time frame they were given to live. They may not be able to shut that bomb down once they know. They leave it up to God, which is as it should be.

There is a woman we know, who means well and has always been extremely sweet. She has a gift that she says she hates because it does not tell her anything except for when a person is about to die. She says that it's incredibly painful and hard to bear, as they usually die within two weeks to maybe a few months tops after she has had a vision. She only sees their death as they are about to cross over. I did not feel for a moment that she was a nut or a liar when she said this. I believe her and so does John. She was sharing something that she has that does her no good, but tells her when someone is about to pass on (and they always do).

She left me a message, which I got this morning, that I wish I could have deleted and never seen had I any idea what was in it. She says that she has been plagued for a week now by what she saw and felt about me and thought I should know (actually the worst thing she could have done as what good could possibly come from it) and told me that she saw my death basically. That she was trying to come to terms with how to deal with all of this and was overwhelmed. She felt I should know. She said that she doesn't know for sure if it's "soon soon" like most of the others where they only have a few weeks, but that I should know I will not feel any pain. She went into other things that she could have possibly never known if she did not have this gift and I am left now with this in my head. There are no words. There are no words adequate because she has basically just told me that I am about to die. Why....why why....! Why did I need to know this! What help could it possibly give me or anyone else who is fighting and trying to remain as positive as possible! Why do this to me! What good could possibly come from burdening me now with such a horrific thing! WE have asked ourselves so many questions here today as John and I sit and try to process what she has just told us (and she is not a fake).

I know that she cares and has a good heart, but now I have to ask myself if someone who truly cares and is doing what's best for you, would ever share something like this! Why not let me go on looking to the future and making plans as if I had a future! Why tell me about this! What can I gain? I am in no shape to suddenly go on some splurge like vacation that we can neither afford or be able to pull off. It makes no sense and now we are both scared, stunned, and holding onto each other for dear life. If she was a fake and I felt that and knew that, I could shrug this off as some of you may tell me to do, but she is not a fake and that's what is frightening. I know that psychics are not always right (I am one of them and I am not always right), but she has always been right about this thing she has in seeing people's deaths RIGHT before they die (a couple of weeks to a few months). She chose to visit this on us today and now there is no going back. John is so scared of losing me that I have never heard him carry on like this. It was as if I had died today. I would be lying if I did not tell you that I am terrified right now. I don't know what she was thinking in doing this because it only harmed and scared us. There was nothing to be gained by doing this. If she felt she had to tell someone this, why on earth would she tell me! Then she told me that she hoped that it did not ruin my night (crazy)! Ruin my night! Oh my God....!

We both think the world of her and don't know what to feel now. How can we feel? What should we feel? This was a selfish and cruel thing to do and yet she is a sweet woman who I know didn't mean to hurt us, but when someone runs somebody over with their car, they are sorry and didn't mean to, but that person is dead. Intentions mean nothing at this point. What are we to think or feel.

I am praying that out of the thousands and thousands of people out here, some are brethren (others with gifts, and hopefully much more powerful than mine) that can tell me if this is what you see too. Let's face it, you can't put the toothpaste back into the tube now, so I must ask the unthinkable now that she has done this to me (I didn't want this or need this). Is this what you see (those who have the gift). I honestly thought I might stun everyone and make it a few more years (so did John)! We truly believed that God was keeping me around for a reason. I thought i had more time. I am so brokenhearted and terrified right now, that I can't think straight. John is off work today because of this (he knows and feels that she is not a fake either, and that's why he can't shake it off), and I am doing everything in my power to pretend that I never got that email. That's easier said than done if it's not happening to you. I just don't understand why. Why why why.........................

I always share my heart with you, and this time is no different. I have been planning a future that I don't have it seems. Living in a fools paradise (I would have rather stayed that way until the end).

Dear Raven,

I ALSO have the gift of second sight, or pre- cognition, and I have had several flashes of insight related to yur illness, your war and battle against evil and against cancer. I have never seen you dying or dead. Let the bad things go like balloons into the sky, beautiful lady. :)

I am also a registered nurse and a Christian. My belief system is based on the scriptures, not any man or any church.

With that said, I have foretold MANY sad things- 9/11. Challenger explosion, Columbine, several other national disasters related to violent deaths, and as a nurse, I always knew when it was time to get down to business with doctors and families regarding DNR orders when none were in place.

I saw diseases and illnesses inside my patients which no scan had revealed at that time. I prayed for God to lead me and guide me to a special place of knowledge for those I as caring for on each shift I worked for many years.

I can tell you also that I knew friends and coworkers were pregnant before the home test was positive. I knew things related to my own pregnancy which no one predicted- dire complications which did happen.. I always have KNOWN THINGS, since about the age of 6.

Now, there are two things I want to share with you:

1) The Holy Scriptures SAY that we can discern whether a vision or other seemingly supernatural thing is of God or of Satan by the fruit it bears.

God's gifts bear good fruit and they are helpful to someone. I have always had so much guilt because I couldn't stop the national tragedies from occurring, then one day, I realized- this is God's way of making me know that I have a special ability far beyond what most people have or want to have. The " famous" pre-cognition was shown to me simply to validate my day to day " non-famous" pre-cognition, because I didn't believe I had a gift for a long time. Now I do not doubt it.

So, God's gifts will bear fruit which is good. Satan's gifts will bear rotten fruit.
Ask yourself what good pre-knowledge of a possible death does? Is it something GOD wants us to know? NO, it is not!!!!
So, who sent these death visions to your " friend"? It has to be the opposite of God if she truly does have a gift. The bad and extremely depressing one- note death announcements which may or may not be true at all are from Satan.

2) Satan will defeat you if you let him. Arm yourself with faith and the power of God, and fight bad " magic" with your own magic of light and discernment. Use your own 6th sense.

If you don't feel like you can get the upper hand on this, please see a clergyman and pray a healing prayer and ask for God to direct YOUR path for YOUR life. I know his works are mighty, even for the smallest creature on earth. I know He loves you and wants you to have freedom from all pain, both physical and emotional.

Lastly, I want to exhort you, my Sister, to not put yourself in this position again. This is the second time a " friend" was able to cast you downwards in a space of just a few weeks with negativity and trash talk.
If this means changing your email, having someone pre-read all mail and FB things, or even leaving FB as I did because of the jealousy and negativity there, then do whatever you need to do to stay centered with God, with your oncologist and treatment team, and with those you love.

I will pray for you to have the strength to do what you need to do emotionally to prevent a " third strike" attack upon your mind and emotions.

Again, I can tell you without hesitation that I have NEVER seen anything related to your death or dying. And I do believe that if you were dying, I would know.. not that I would say so, of course, but I have not had the slightet inkling that you won't beat cancer and come out on the other side of this disease.
It is taking time, and it will take time. I see you surviving. :)

I love you as I was one of your FB friends who PMed with you quite often when I was on the site- before your illness. God laid a burden upon my heart to leave Social Media due to the negativity.

It's hard to write an email which will go " public" because I am very shy about my "second sight" but I need to tell you what I learned as a child when my pre-cognition started and how I have walked with God through the years.

Love to you and prayers for your healing and your peace of mind at this time and in the future,

I do not agree with something you said here.

You admonish Raven for daring to feel something from an attack that was set against her for no reason implying this makes her weak. I think not! I think Raven is entitled to be a little scared here!I most certainly do not agree! If anything Raven has had to walk through fire and has done so with dignity and grace like I have never seen before! She is flesh and blood and going through something most of us cannot even begin to understand! She is obviously doing all that she can given these extreme circumstances! If anything what YOU just said was hurtful to her spirit! She is no weak woman!

This here is nothing like that other ridiculous attack (I am assuming you are referring to that maniac on twitter who went after Raven implying she did not even have cancer and that would upset anyone who is going through something like this for real)! That is the only thing I can think of that you are talking about because I have been following Raven for years! Actress Catherine Hickland from "One Life To Live" went with Raven for her chemo sessions and that bullshit was laid to rest! Hoping that person burns in hell for what they tried to do to hert that day! I would have still found that to be very upsetting if I were Raven. She is the strongest woman I know! If someone told me they were psychic and had a vision of me dying and their visions were always correct, I would be incredibly upset! This woman has already been weakened by the battle she is dealing with and to have things like this put on top of all that has to be excruciating! She has handled it with grace and dignity always! I can't say the same for others I know in her line of work!

Give her a break!

Sorry Raven but this was not okay with me! You are such a source of strength and inspiration. I admire your courage and your strength and wonder how you have taken it all these years in doing your column. You are the strongest woman I know! Never forget that! The only thing I agree with above me is that you have more time left to you. You will be our miracle child! XO!

I was thinking the same thing when I read that. This was not just a regular comment that someone left Ravenbeauty. It was from a friend of hers that's psychic who told her that she had just seen Ravenbeauty's death in a vision!

People need to stop and think more carefully before they post. You have no idea what you are talking about until you are walking in that persons shoes. End of story.

[> [> For Amanda............................. -- Ravenbeauty, 19:17:31 02/16/14 Sun [1]


Please forgive the delay in responding to you, as what you imparted here was so comforting, and exactly what I had hoped for (that others with psychic gifts, would hopefully see what happened to me here, and set me straight one way or another, as the toothpaste was already out of the tube so to speak). I would never want to know when I am going to die otherwise. Nobody wants that (certainly not me), but this woman and her vision took that choice away from me. Now I had to plunge headfirst and ask others who have these gifts to tell me if she was right (if that's what you also see) or if nothing could be further from the truth. Horrible situation and horrible nightmarish days on end with John and I sick to our stomachs over this (I'm not sure how you could possibly even remotely see this as weakness that John and I were upset over a revelation like this)! That part was rather odd for us both (and we have scratched our heads enough times in trying to think of what other comment left me spiraling out of control for you recently). We don't have a scoreboard. We are just trying to keep me alive and our heads above water. All of that was strange truth be told, Amanda. If I were not the strong woman I am, I would not be here right now to even answer you. How much stronger must I be? I am made of flesh and bone......

I am so grateful to you for coming forward and letting me know that you do not feel this or see this and that you normally would if it were true. I have had some others come forward privately and publicly on Facebook and have said as much to me as well (thank God). I know that in the end, God is the one who truly knows. He can change what he has in store for any of us at any time if he so chooses. We can be granted pardons, and stays of execution's if you will, through our spirit guides.

As so many of you have lovingly pointed out, you see me as the strongest woman you have ever known and that has brought me to tears on more than one occasion. I love you for it. I also love you for trying to defend me here on a note that was not quite so positive, and in all truth, inappropriate and somewhat hurtful for what it implied, but I try to take in the good from the bad, and let THAT sink in more than the bad (and there is so much more good).

John and I have discussed this so many times. People will always have great advice on what's easy to ignore and what's easy to overlook when they are not walking in your shoes (as old as time itself). Let he who has not sinned cast the first stone. The truth is that I have ignored so many things that would have had most people in a complete tailspin, and have done my level best to shrug off some of the insanity and cruelty out there over the years and through this battle. That said, I am human. I am fighting for my life against a cancer that is the blackest of any out there. For me, chemo does not end. For me, it is a daily struggle now as the cancer and chemo have left my body genuinely ravaged. No one else can TRULY know unless they are here living with John and I to see what I go through day to day. We ignore much. We endure much, but having a nurse we see every month for port flushes and blood work, tell us that she has seen my death and always sees a person's death before one of her patients die, was rather hard to shrug off! Forgive me for allowing something of that magnitude to cast me downward in a spiral of sorts. Not sure what else can be said there.....! I am sure this won't be the last time I am spiraling downward, as it were, as I walk through this and things are hurled at me through the dark realm as my light grows stronger and my "voice" more powerful (at least I see where it is coming from).

Actress Catherine Hickland might be the the closest to knowing what we are dealing with over here, as she has gone to chemo with me, and held my hand as I am being infused, and has seen firsthand what I am dealing with. I was written off as dead last year by some rather prominent hospitals, and yet I am alive. I thank God for this every day. If it were not for God, my lord and savior Jesus Christ, The Mighty, Blessed Angels, The Blessed saints, The Blessed Martyr's, Our Holy Mother Mary, The Holy Ghost, The Archangel Michael (who I hold very near and dear to my heart), along with my beloved Oncologist, who refused to give up on me, I would have fulfilled that prophecy and died last year.

I pray to every one of therm several times a day, and my faith only grows stronger. The more that is thrown at me from the dark realm, in the hopes that I will blame God and lose faith in him, only strenghten's my faith. I have Lucifer's number but good (do I ever)! He uses the sick of mind and heart, and those who are open to him, as puppets to cause people like me pain, and in the hopes that I will lose my faith in God, but it does just the opposite. It's perfectly normal and perfectly OK to fall, as we all do, and will continue to do unless you are made of steel, but it's not important that you fell, it's more important that you got up again. I am learning much on this journey.

I do thank you for the good stuff in this. It really was greatly appreciated, but it might have been nicer if the slap was not enclosed along with it. It wasn't fair and the fact that I keep getting up again is a show of true strength.

I am so sorry that I am not online as much I as I used to be, but sometimes sitting at a computer, is almost mind numbingly painful for me. I update on my Facebook when I can. Please know that I do still come by here and check out your lovely notes for me. One of those notes saved my life back in March of 2012, and gave me faith that I had never had before in my life. It was the sign I needed after a long overdue prayer session. I love you guys (genuinely).

It is not in my DNA to give up, and so I promise you that I intend to live as long as the lord will allow.......

I love you....XOXO!

You are the very milk of human kindness and grace. I have been trying to figure out what other revelation left you spiralling out of control too. I don't get that at all. All I wanted to do was scream give the woman a phucking break! What the hell! I can't believe how much you are going through and someone is going to smack you on the hand for being human! I think she is keeping a score board and it's the wrong gone! It should be a score board showing your strength and ability to spring back!

Hang in there and know that we love you!

Smug idiots who have no idea what you are dealing with!

Raven - I'm so sorry this lady felt she needed to burden you with this information. However, just because she has been right in the past does not mean that she is right this time. Our Heavenly Father is much more powerful than any psychic. I (and thousands of others) are praying for you. I pray that the Lord will touch and heal you and that he will allow you to remain on this earth for many years to come. Don't give up hope. Put your faith in the Lord. He hears your prayers and will help you. Psalms 34:17 - "The righteous cry, and the LORD heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles." Remember that. Our Heavenly Father always keeps his promises. No matter what anyone says, the Lord is in control. He has a plan for your life and after praying for you just now, I feel like he has plans for you to live for quite a while longer. I feel he will use you to help others. So please try to put those negative thoughts out of your mind. Have faith. The Lord will deliver you.

I get a big sense that this woman let HER OWN FEARS overtake her "sensitivity" this time.

Those are my true feelings, & I'm "like you" dearest Ravenbeauty. :)
Love you always!

My heart breaks for you. What a terrible thing that this
woman has done to you, she has made you doubt yourself. I do not have a gift like the one you have, nor do I necessarily believe in them. I do believe in intuition.
I am a Christian and believe in God, and you also profess to know the Lord. If you believe in God you then you must know Satan is real, and that he would like nothing better than to put doubt and fear in the heart of a believer, he is the father of all lies and is quite capable of leading this woman astray.
Raven follow your heart, God is in control of all things, He knows what you need AND HE HAS kept you alive despite all odds. Trust in the Lord, He will never leave you
nor forsake you.
I am looking forward to reading your messages for many years to come.

Dearest Raven,

You don't know me as I have never left a message for you before but I have been reading your posts here for years. I started because I am a great lover of all things General Hospital but became much more invested in your welfare when I started reading of your health issues and have been praying for you every single step of the way on this long and winding path you have been on regarding your health. I never knew why I felt such a deep and intense connection to you but now I do. I also have a gift. I actually use my gift in my career as a "Spiritual Counselor". I do not like the term "psychic" as people don't really understand the true meaning - "of the soul". What this hopefully well-intentioned woman gave to you was not "of the soul". I feel it was merely her own fears and heavy energy that were misinterpreted. I have been given people's deaths again and again and some of the time they were true but many times they were not true at all and it was just some form of psychological garbage mixed in with some other intuitive "knowings". I have seen my father die on a couple of occasions and though he has come close to that a number of times he never did. At those times I dreamed of his death he was going through some horrible times but he made it through and I believe that the deaths we "seers" see is sometimes the "death" of a version of that person. My father has surely become a different version of himself and had some real spiritual awakenings after some of these "deaths". Much like the Death card in the tarot deck "death" does not always mean a person leaving this physical earth. From the many things I have read here that were miraculous, literally miraculous, happenings for you I would not believe for one single nanosecond that our great creator would send you a message like that after receiving these miracles. I believe you either encountered the darkness trying to overcome the unbelievable amount of light you have created on this sight and Facebook between yourself all all of us out here lifting you on your journey or else this woman saw the death of one of your ego selves. Either way there is no reason in the world to spend one more moment giving this message your precious energy. Being an intuitive myself I feel I can plan on reading your wondrous posts for a very long time to come.

Much love, much light. Namaste!

Raven, only God knows when we are going to die. As hard as it is, please don't let this person influence the strength you have in fighting this terrible disease. I was diagnosed with lung cancer nine months ago. Not a good prognosis. But in order to function and live my life, I just say my mantra - Let Go. Let God. My life is in His hands. As is yours. Some days, I have to say my mantra a thousand times, but it does help and lets me focus on what I need to do to build my strength. Please don't give up. So many of us that read your posts are in awe of your strength and touched by your words.

Dear Raven,

Someone you know or is your friend or cares for you would say positive things to you. Try and focus on getting better because its not worth dwelling on the negative things this person has to say about your future. I've been following you from the beginning and everything you've been doing has helped you tremendously. This person is not worth the time of day.

Love Always!

Bless you, Raven:

I will get into what I feel about your "friend" without pleasantries...
Please block her domain in your e-mail. She has obviously gone a step or two downward from any God-given gift she ever may have had. And that makes her evil and someone you don't need having coming into your realm. That she may have seemed real and sweet--well, obviously she isn't, AND THAT IS REALITY. There is NEVER a time a child of God would come to you with this kind of "news". NEVER EVER.

I am a Christian and a Methodist. So saying, there are some symbolisms of the Catholic church in which I believe, and some I don't.

Intuitively, I believe in the hope and faith in the lighting of candles. You light a candle and you are instilling into your life the words of Christ: "I am the Light of the World."

So, please try lighting a candle (a white one, just to be sure of the pure light) within a close (intimate) space that encompasses both you and John.

Then pray for the protection given to you by the Light as it grows to envelope you both. Focus on the light. Let It grow to protect you both with a pure white cloak of light, like a tent over your immediate space. All negative thoughts and forces are gone and the protective tent becomes a shield that allows only good to come upon you.

And there is good coming to you. All the good thoughts of your friends who read your threads and send prayers to God through Jesus for you...believe, you are truly blessed. Love, Sue
