Losing an item can be very frustrating and stressful. Luckily, there are ways to increase your chances of finding a lost object.
1. Re-frame from lost or stolen to misplaced.
A lost or stolen object implies that the item is either gone forever or will be extremely challenging to find. Rather than thinking of the item as lost, consider that it is simply misplaced.
2. Begin by relaxing and trusting your intuition.
It may seem that time is your enemy, especially if you can’t find your car keys and are already running late. However, desperately and frantically looking for your keys could take longer than the time it takes to relax before beginning your search. Make yourself some tea, get out in nature, or just take some slow deep breaths to kick in the relaxation response.
Now that you are relaxed, your mind is clearer and your intuition is heightened. Ask yourself about the object. Is it in your immediate vicinity? Can you see yourself with it the last time you used it?
You may think I’m crazy, but there has been more than once that I’ve misplaced my wallet or a credit card and chose not report any credit cards as stolen. This is because I knew intuitively that the card was somewhere in my house. One time I didn’t retrieve my ATM card for over a week, probably because I didn’t even look for it, trusting and knowing it was somewhere safe in my home (which it was), and I’d find it when I needed it.
Your intuition might prompt you to report that card stolen, and if so, trust that and make that phone call.
3. Use your powerful intention and expect to retrieve your belonging.
Focusing clearly on what you want with a calm expectation that you will have it puts aside, and can even alleviate, any fears around losing an item.
In my youth, a friend and I were mugged. I put up a good fight (probably not the smartest move), as the mugger and I played tug-of-war with my purse. The strap broke, and he won. My friend went along with my crazy idea to retrieve my purse. I was determined, knowing I would find the purse, and was ok with the cash missing but wanted at least the other items. Looking in nearby allies, I soon found my purse, and yes, with the cash missing.
Recently, a friend had lost her wallet and assumed it was gone forever. I told her the above story, along with others. She lit up at the possibility. When I saw her the next week, she had found her wallet! However, hers also contained her cash. She said she decided she wanted to find all the contents of her wallet, including the cash. Where was her wallet? When going to pay for a meal at a restaurant she regularly goes to, the person behind the counter asked her if she had lost her wallet, recognizing her from her driver’s license. She handed her the wallet, with all cards and cash intact.
4. Be open to magic and miracles.
Your mind assists you by being logical and scientifically predictive (based on past experience) regarding how any future events will unfold. Rather than getting trapped into limited possibilities, you can be open to magic and miracles. Expect the unexpected!
Long ago, my mother, grandmother and I were visiting Vermont. After a nice dinner out, we returned to our hotel room, where my mother realized she had lost her $100 bill that she had stuffed in her boot for emergencies. She was certain that the money was gone forever. Using principle #3, I knew I could retrieve her money. I went alone in the rental car (not wanting my mom’s bad vibes with me – sorry mom, I was young…) back to the restaurant, absolutely certain and excited that I would find her money. I looked all around and under the table we ate at, the surrounding tables, and asked our waitress if she had seen it. I did not find the $100 bill.
I left the restaurant feeling confused, standing in the parking lot with my mind not understanding how it could be possible that I did not find her money. Just then, a man exited the restaurant and called to me, “Excuse me, is this what you’re looking for?” In his hand waved a $100 bill. He said, “You were looking in the wrong area!” I surprised him with a big hug, thanked him, and went home with deep joy and gratitude.
5. Trust in the goodness of others.
In the above stories in #3 and #4, the man at the restaurant and the woman behind the counter both did not have to return those items.
While the news may report primarily all the bad in the world, there is actually much more good happening every day than bad. Open your heart to the goodness of the human spirit.
Remember you can always reach out for assistance. Where would you return an object you found? The police department? The front desk of an establishment? Post it on Nextdoor.com? Lost and found is a common place in most businesses because more often than not, someone who finds an object will want it returned to its owner.
6. Take a break.
Nothing can better halt your success in finding a misplaced item than your stress, agitation, frustration and anxiety. Stress can make our minds cloudy and we can literally even be blind to seeing an object that’s right in front of us. Take a break, get your mind off looking for the object and relax.
While camping with a large group of people, a friend lost his car keys. He looked frantically everywhere he could think of. After about an hour of searching, everyone knew he was missing his keys, and a search party ensued as both adults and children hunted.
I suggested he stop searching and take a break, knowing his keys would be found. He was particularly stressed because if he didn’t find his keys, he would have to ask his wife to make the two and a half hour drive to bring the spares. He finally decided to go call his wife on a landline to forewarn her of the possibility, as there was no cell reception where we were camping. I realized that while he might have thought he was simply going to call his wife, he was actually taking the break I knew he needed. Once he returned to camp, he looked one more time, almost immediately finding his keys in a pocket of a pair of pants he had forgotten he wore the night before!
7. Call on Archangel Chamuel or St. Anthony
You always have allies in the unseen world. They stand by to assist you if you ask. Both Archangel Chamuel and St. Anthony have been used to find not just missing objects, but also missing loved ones and pets, reconciliation of relationships, restoration of health, and finding a new job.
Chamuel is the angel of love. He is particularly helpful in relationships, assisting to strengthen your heart and pure love connection with others, yourself, and your body. Because of this, Archangel Chamuel can assist you in finding lost objects, for you also have a relationship with that object.
Call on Archangel Chamuel to bring his heart-centered pink light to your situation. Ask him to assist you in releasing the ties of fear and loss you have around your missing object. As he helps you to come into your heart and calmly trust your situation, the light of unconditional love can then shine onto your object, allowing you to re-connect with it with grace and ease.
St. Anthony of Padua
St. Anthony is the patron saint of lost and stolen items. Saints are people who were deemed by the Catholic Church to have been extraordinarily holy and virtuous during their life and now reside in heaven. Saints often have stories of miracles they performed during their lifetime, and St. Anthony is no exception.
The particular reason St. Anthony is Patron of Lost Items can be traced to a time he was teaching at a Franciscan friary in Bologna, France. St. Anthony had a book of psalms, or “psalter”, that was both valuable as well as filled with important notes and comments he wrote in it to use in his teaching. A student who was growing tired of the religious life decided to leave the friary. When he did, he also stole St. Anthony’s psalter. St. Anthony prayed that it would be returned, and the student then had a change of heart, both returning the psalter as well as returning to a religious life at the friary.
You can create your own prayer to St. Anthony or find one that resonates with you. Here is one that speaks to my heart.
“St. Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find (name your lost item) which has been lost. At least restore to me peace and tranquility of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favor, I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.”
8. Re-trace your steps.
This is a common way to find what you’ve misplaced. Begin by relaxing, maybe sitting in a comfortable chair, and close your eyes. Remember not only the last time you saw the object, but also the steps you took afterward, like going into different rooms in your house, answering the phone, or making something to eat. Often an item is put in a different place than usual, has fallen behind something or is underneath another item.

Trusting the guidance of your angels, guides and true authentic self is simpler that you think. The only thing in the way is YOU.
While there are basic ways people experience guidance from their angels, guides, and their own authentic divine nature, each person is unique in their experience. Know that if an experience contains any fear-based emotions or thoughts, they are not to be trusted as divine guidance. Even if your intuition alerts you to not trust a situation or person, such as a scam artist or where your safety is involved such as to not get on a plane, the alert itself is just a clear jolt of information given to take immediate action on as opposed to the worry, doubt or anxiety that comes with fearful thoughts. No matter how pretty or professional a package of information comes in, even if labeled as “spiritual”, if it doesn’t feel right to you, it is most important to trust your own higher guidance.
Signs You Can Trust
Some define synchronicity as a “meaningful coincidence”. When you are following your intuition and divine guidance, life begins to flow and align with your heart’s desire and soul’s mission. You are in the right place at the right time, and things occur with greater ease and grace.
2. Repetitive Signs
Your intuition and angels are persistent. Messages and guidance often aren’t given just once. They will repeat until you receive them, accept them, and take action if necessary. Watch those calm repetitive thoughts that guide you toward an action for your well-being, and those signs in your environment and dreams such as number sequences, feathers, coins, birds, animals, songs and what you hear or read from others.
3. Feel-good Emotions
When you’re connected into your higher knowing and divine guidance, you can’t help but feel good. Even the greatest crisis can bring with it a sense of peace or calm. The truth of who you are is filled with states of being and experiencing unconditional love, joy, gratitude, trust, compassion and peace. As hard as your situation might be, when you tap into the divine, you know that all is truly well.
4. Calm Inner Knowing
Your intuition and divine guidance bring with them a calm inner knowing, even amid intense circumstances. You might feel a relaxation throughout your body, a calm grounded feeling in your belly or gut, a sense of peacefulness, or of certainty (the “I just know” – without rhyme or reason - sensation). Even if the message is alerting you to a danger, instead of fear, you are calmly guided to take important immediate action that will bring you to safety.
5. Lack of Judgment
Divine guidance and your intuition are neutral. Even with our own judgment of “good” or “bad” feelings about a situation, the actual guidance comes as information, plain and simple. This is why there is a sense of calmness, that everything will be ok, and you can feel free to accept and be at peace with any situation. This is the energy of unconditional love. Everything becomes simply an experience, a lesson, an opportunity for growth and expansion. There are no “shoulds” present, no doomed feelings such as “If I don’t do this, then something bad will happen.” That interpretation comes from our minds. Start to notice the initial guidance you received. It will come simply as information, whether a thought, feeling, sensation, sound, smell, or visual cue.
6. Sudden Ideas or Flashes
Often when we ask for guidance, a sudden thought will cross our minds. Pay attention to those flashes of inspiration, no matter how seemingly insignificant, irrelevant or trivial. Take action!
7. A Simple and Direct Action Step
Divine guidance is given one step at a time. You might want more prosperity, overwhelmed by debt and bills, and are guided to clear out the clutter in your closet. You might want vibrant health, and are guided to simply drink more water. While your goals, challenges or problems might feel huge, you can trust that each small step, taken one at a time, will have you reach your larger goals.
8. Something Out of the Ordinary
You’re going along with your day, kind of operating on automatic, and you notice something different. This could look like a thought, “Get off at this exit now,” and you avoid an accident. You might see an animal acting out of the norm, or a bird where you might not usually see it. You walk into a room, feeling fine, and suddenly you feel angry, nervous or sad. You feel a breeze when all the windows and doors are closed. Notice when something is out of place or suddenly different. Your inner and outer divine guidance is speaking to you!
There are usually more than one of these signs happening at any given time. If you doubt, breathe and ask, “Is this my intuition?” or “Is this my angels?” Trust the immediate answer when it brings with it that calm knowing without judgment. Call on your angels and divine guides and ask for even clearer messages.

Ah, love. It’s something everyone wants more of. How do you know when you are accessing divine love or just that regular yummy but strings-attached conditional love?
First we’ll look at what divine love is not.
Anyone raised in a traditional religion was taught that there are certain behaviors you must exhibit and rules you must follow in order to be in the good graces of God and get to that divine place, be it Heaven, Eden or Nirvana.
That’s far from divine love. Anytime you have the “I will love you if…” experience, from a loved one or yourself, you know you are not experiencing divine love.
There is a very specific reason I was drawn to becoming an expert at connecting to my client’s angels, archangels, ascended masters and divine guides. Calling upon their angels, that person is immediately enveloped with divine love. We all know that feeling well, for it is who we are, in our hearts and our divine higher self.
Divine love says, “I love you. How may I serve you?”
It is unwavering. No action, thought, feeling or experience can change the timeless stream of pure acceptance, peace and love that flows through the higher realms of angels and the true divine self.
Love is the nature of the universe. Divine love and the universe are neutral, with that no-strings-attached attitude. The universe gives you more of what you have your attention on and call forth, without question or judgment.
How do you know when you’re connecting to your higher self, to your divine intuition, or to your angels?
Everyone experiences this uniquely, but there are some palpable cornerstones of divine love I’m sure you have experienced at least one of. Even when you experience divine love for the briefest moments, miracles occur.
Despite anything happening in your world, you feel a sense of calmness. Your breathing becomes slower. You relax. You experience in the present moment that all is well and there is nothing you have to worry about, change or strive towards.
Divine loves comes with a gentle heart. The lion rests with the lamb. Things we fought against we now surrender to. A compassionate heart seeks to understand all viewpoints and know that any action taken by ourselves or another comes from doing the best that we can given where we are in the moment. You see the pain in others and within yourself, the longing for love and relief. With compassion, you take any action necessary for the well-being of all, including leaving a situation that is abusive.
Enveloped by divine love, you release the need to control anything in your life. You simply know, for no logical reason, that all is well in the world. You know that putting your life into the hands of the angels and your higher self will have everything you need taken care of. You trust that everything you are experiencing is for your highest good.
Divine love comes with a sense of safety. Held in the wings of angels, you become more courageous and empowered to take steps you would not have before because of fears and doubts. This love calls forth your ability to take chances and follow your intuition. You may not know what your future holds, but you sense that you do not have to “be in charge” anymore, manipulating, planning and controlling your life in order to feel safe in a dangerous world.
The experience of gratitude and appreciation comes more naturally when you feel divine love. You want to bless all the people in your life and all your experiences, as challenging as they may be. Nature becomes more vivid and beautiful, and little things you may not have noticed before rise up to be appreciated. You start to notice what an amazing life you have, here and now.
I want some of that! How can I experience more divine love?
First, know that you are not lacking in divine love. In fact, it is who you are. You just forget sometimes. Life is our journey of remembering.
All the cornerstones of divine love can be practiced and cultivated.
Your angels are your guides, not the ones who supply you with divine love. They are here to remind you and show you how you can connect to Divine YOU.
Listen to that quiet guidance beneath your to-do list and conditions you must adhere to in order to be able to love yourself, shine out your contribution to the world and give love to others.
A MESSAGE FROM THE ANGELS
Divine love is not separate from conditional love or any experience you are having. It is infused in every particle of the universe.
You think you need to look outside yourself for divine love and guidance. The truth is, we, the angels, are a part of you, not separate from you.
Because you’ve forgotten your own divinity, we stay with you throughout your life, reminding you that you chose this path for a very sacred reason.
We applaud you for your bravery and willingness to be a spirit who has chosen to forget their true nature. What challenges you have overcome and will continue to!
If you were in our position, seeing you as we do, you would fall to your knees, tears flowing in absolute awe at your inner strength and commitment to love. Loving is easy when everything around you is perfect – when you are surrounded with people who love you just as you are, with an abundance of food, shelter and health, and with an absolute knowledge of why you are here and your gifts to the world.
Instead, you have chosen to forget your own mastery and greatness. Your world can bring pain, separation, lack, violence and competition.
Yet despite these challenges, you love! You make a difference for others, enjoy and appreciate life, and trust there is reason for it all, even if you do not know what that reason is!
Do you see how divine you truly are? Nothing in this life can take that away.
Use us to assist you in remembering. Use us to help you align with your divine self and guide you to the steps that will bring you the love and peace you are wanting so desperately sometimes.
Ask and you shall receive. Know this to be true. Declare it. Call forth all your angels. Fill your room and home with us. We will guide you toward feeling the love that you are more and more, greater than you ever imagined possible.
You must be willing to take help when it is offered. This comes in many forms, whether from humans or the angels. You are not meant to do this alone or with your own will alone. Divine will comes from knowing you are a part of a greater plan, a greater game afoot. You will know divine will by the way you feel when asked to follow it. Doubts and fears can cloud your judgment but are not a part of divine guidance. Commit to acting upon divine will and accepting all the assistance that surrounds you.
We love you always and eternally.

I’ve noticed that recently, most of my “re-pins” on Pinterest are number sequences. Pinterest is a site where you can post or “pin” pictures you like and create a “board” of pins, such as a board I have called, “Angels and Divine Guidance.”
In fact, over the past 24 hours, 6 people have re-pinned the number sequence 222 from my Angels board. It’s become literally a feedback loop for seeing this number sequence myself, affirming the powerful experience I had with my personal guardian angel about 24 hours ago.
If you’re reading this blog, I’m sure you have had the experience of seeing repetitive number sequences or patterns, such as 12:12 on your clock or a bill for $33.33.
Seeing number sequences usually come in clusters, as opposed to just seeing one here and there every month or two.
Of course, we immediately want to know, “What does it mean?”
You can look up the meaning of specific sequences, such as in “angel numbers” or numerology.
There’s good reason seeing these sequences are being called angel numbers, for they occur in response to a higher vibration. If you’re like most of us, you don’t often immediately connect spiritual experience with the physical body. For example, spirituality might come in the form of meditation in the morning and if you have a physical experience, it is left for your physician to diagnose.
Physically, we have something called a vagus nerve, which effects our health and creativity. The vagus nerve is one of 12 cranial nerves, and is intimately connected with the heart, lungs and digestive system. Through the action of electrical impulses, the vagus nerve initiates the relaxation response, translates “gut feelings” in the digestive tract to the brain, and brings information from the heart to the brain.
As you go through your awakening into a deeper connection with your higher self and divine guidance, the vagus nerve begins to re-wire and expand, causing various symptoms. One of the most common symptoms is seeing number sequences.
Numbers are part of the language of light, of divine guidance and the higher realms of the angels.
Seeing number sequences isn’t about the angels trying to communicate you. It is about you shifting your own vibration so that you are more in tune with their ever-present guidance.
The way to allow these patterns to assist you is to embrace the knowing that you are, indeed, connecting more and more to your higher self and the divine higher realms. Each time you see a series of numbers, say, “Thank you! Thank you for affirming that I am raising my vibration and receiving divine guidance. I am highly intuitive. I am guided by my heart, Divine Will and the angels.” Celebrate these number sequences as proof that you are doing wonderfully!
You can look up those numbers and notice what interpretation feels right to you, or you can simply choose to listen to that quiet voice inside that is nudging you to take a step in a certain direction. Trust that gentle voice and you will receive more and more guidance from it.
My angels nudged me while writing this, so below is their message.
From the Angels
While it is true that seeing numbers is affirmation that you are receiving guidance from the angelic realm and your higher self, specific number sequences are like specific colors. Each number and series of numbers holds a very special energy and vibration that contains specific information.
The number sequence 222 pertains to the balance of opposites, the opposing energies of light and dark, masculine and feminine, fear and love. When you embrace these opposites, you stand in the center, in your true divine nature, that of unconditional love. Three 2’s remind you that you are integrating your spirit and soul with your body.
When you see 222, let it remind you to breathe and know that all is truly well, that you are ever embraced and pulsing with divine love and light, surrounded by angels and guides who love you just as you are, whether you are peaceful, happy, kind, loving, angry, afraid or resentful. No matter your circumstance, you are loved just as you are for all that you are.
Sweet angels, you are not ever alone, and all that you are experiencing is your schooling in remembering your own divinity, your own connection to us and your true nature.
Let these numbers you see teach you, for they contain special codes of information that will guide and empower your path. You know how you feel a certain way when you experience a color? How do you feel in the forest, surrounded by green trees? How do you feel in the desert, surrounded by tans and browns? How do you feel when you wear certain colors, or enter a room painted in a specific color? The same is true for numbers. How do you feel when you see these numbers? Do you notice something different when you see the numbers, such as in your environment, thoughts, sensations or feelings?
You need not try to see these numbers nor strive to understand their meaning. Instead, we ask that you surrender. Allow your present moment perceptions to inform you, what you notice when you see numbers. When you stop trying to make meaning of things, answers and guidance arise on their own, like the wings of angels lifting you up. Appreciate the experience of seeing them, ask for our guidance, and let go.
We are always here for you. You need not search us out, just as you can not search for numbers. Let your now moment experience be your guidance, knowing that we are with you always.
Let these numbers be your affirmation that you are receiving guidance from us. We love you.
It's not just you, my beloved. The world is transforming and we're all in this together. You are a master and expert in your unique experiences and contribution to the world. Together we'll navigate through these challenging yet oh so juicy and magical times.
