Every now and then, an angel must relax... August 14 2017
You're busy, I'm busy, we're all busy!
At times being busy is lovely. At times being busy is mind numbing (helps to keep our monkey minds at bay). At times being busy is productive - 'I got _________ so much done!'
And then there are times you need to rest.
For those of you following me rather actively, know that I've taken the summer off... kinda. Even my husband said I was to sit on the beach and do nothing. Even clients were telling me I looked wiped. I listened as best I could!
Funny thing that has happened while taking time off; I've created four new products! Yes, four. Some shall debut this weekend and the rest within a couple of weeks. This isn't about plugging great new stuff, but rather a funny; take time off to create?
It's in those quiet moments of sitting on the beach, chatting with my summer neighbors and of course the cats and Gabi that new ideas filtered through. Why? Because I wasn't busy!
It's in those moments when we allow ourselves to BE that we get great clarity. We can truly see where this journey is leading us. We can take time off to giggle, meander, ponder, and revel in ducks parading down the street daily. It's those little things that help to juice one up. Through that juicing, enters Gabriel and a platter of ideas are presented. Not all will be ones you wish to be active on, but then again... who knows?
Taking time out daily to rejuvenate is imperative for all. This allows one to not get sucked into drama; whether it be personal, local, regional, national or international. It doesn't mean you can't act upon those things, but you can do so with better clarity as to why you get involved and at what time.
Peace does start within. Take time out daily to connect with your peace and the rest does follow.

Full Moon, Lion's Gate and Solar Eclipse... OH MY! August 07 2017 2 Comments
The time is here.
High octane energies are here to help us push through that last bit of labor pains to BE.
In fact today was partial eclipse here on the East Coast.
Here's a list of events and their corresponding dates in chronological order:
- Full Moon (Sturgeon Moon) ~ August 7, 2017
- Lion's Gate ~ August 8, 2017
- New Moon ~ August 21, 2017
- Total Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017
What's this all mean and...
What to do and how to best prepare.
The Lion's Gate
offers a prime moment to review what matters to you and why. When answering the whys, there is truly only one simple question; Does it align with your essence? Today of all days this is the perfect time to set aside time to meditate with an awareness of the universe at large and to allow yourself to slip into the sublime energies that this day offers. Call on Big Mike first will give you the protection and security so you can allow yourself to be wrapped up around them. Set the intention to get clarity of where your life is going and for additional insights of timeline, how, etc. This is not a HOW meditation, but one meant for encouragement and empowerment. If you ask, ideas will be offered. Perhaps not at that exact moment, but then again, you may be quite surprised.
Remember, when any act is done through love, all is possible.
The Double Whammy Event on 8/21/17
How ironic that the new moon and the total solar eclipse are on the same day. Talk about heralding in New Beginnings. Eclipses are known to upset the apple cart, everything goes topsy turvy momentarily as the world stops and watches. This is the perfect time to get rid of the unwanted from your life. On the reverse side of that coin; this is magical moment to reset your inner workings and set new goals/targets that are generated from the Heart. No need for wishing to win the lottery unless there is a great reason for doing so beyond greed.
There is GREAT power in this eclipse... it starts in the 33d state (Oregon) and ends on the 33d parallel in the Carolinas. The number '3' is long associated with the Ascended Masters. It is time to master your desires and why you desire them. Oh the irony... I just glanced at the clock and the time? 3:33pm.
One of the cool things about eclipses is that you don't necessarily feel or see its effect on you perhaps for months. This is not an instant POW of energy (although many of you shall feel it and already are), but the aftermath of this total eclipse will be felt well into 2018.
How to Make it Work for You
I love list making. It makes me feel oh so special when I can cross it off mostly, but it greatly helps me stay somewhat organized. You see, I can get distracted easily on any given day, but as usual, I digress....
Your list? Here are some ideas:
- What you would like to 'accomplish' the remainder of the year and beyond.
- Why you would like to have these come to fruition. This is a BIG one, so spend some time with it.
- What sources could help you get there (pop down whatever comes to mind)
At this point in time, the force is indeed with you. Your manifesting prowess is at all time high. I've forewarned this; be every mindful of what you think, say and do! A thought is a thought is a thought, or is it? You can retrain your mind to think more positively vs. realistic. You are more connected to this beautiful universe and its energies now than ever before. Call upon them to ask for assistance and allow yourself to receive.
Also during this time you will become more inspired with possible new ideas and projects. I can speak from experience on this one. The energy has been building for a month or so now and since, my ahem, Down Time at the shore I've conjured up at least four new products that will be debuting this fall or sooner. Step out of the logical of 'What Makes Sense' it's an easier trap to fall into than one may understand. Go with the flow as the saying goes and you will be quite surprised at the trajectory you head off to.
Rituals you may do during this time:
- Place those crystals outside! This energy is simply too juicy to not allow your crystals to bask in it as well and thereby help you along the way.
- Allow yourself to experience consciousness moments throughout your day. Who hasn't uttered the phrase, 'Where did this day go?' at some point? Me included. When this happens, you've spent that time on auto pilot and weren't able to be conscious about what matters to you.
- If you chose to initiate a ritual, light a sacred candle. May I suggest Haniel; The Angel of Manifestation. He helps you to create your version of Heaven on Earth Reality.
- Take time out daily for you. Spend time in nature along with a journal and just start writing. It may not make sense at first, but in time you too shall be in the flow of things.
Thank you, as always for reading and posting your comments below as well as sharing with whomever you think will benefit.
When you get energy 'Love Bites' August 01 2017 6 Comments
This post has been truly a few months in the making... Do I or don't I share this 'unusual' phenomena?
Energy, as you well know, is just that; energy. Energy activates electricity turning on and off our lights. Energy charges our computers, crystals and of course there is energy healing.
Another kind of energy, and one I don't actively play in often (or consciously at least) is the kaka. I freely admit the lower energies exist. I've seen them. I've witnessed their existence in others. I let others do what they do best and I stick to what I do best.
This my story and I'm sticking to it:
This past spring kaka was surrounding us. I could literally feel it and it was affecting all I touched; clients, home and heart and business. I'm of the mindset, go after me, not my 'babies' and if you are reading this, you fall in the 'baby' arena. I'm a Momma Bear to many. Therefore I decided to fight back and do battle.
I poked the bear so to speak.
So this 'thing' decided to mess with me physically. As you will see in the photo... I had a 'hicky' from them... hence me making light of it all and calling them Love Bites. It was soooo not loving. While not monumental in the scheme of things, this was highly out of the ordinary for me. It showed up during my sleep and as I wash my face nightly, I can attest it was not there prior to bedtime.
Bizarre and I must admit a tad scary.
Why do I bothering sharing this now after three months? It's happening to others. A dear friend has gotten bitten on her legs. Funny thing about her it too only happens at night. The big difference is that she delves into this energy regularly to clear for others. She is use to this, protects herself diligently and yet... got bit.
This is a warning for you all. Do not go delving into energies you are not familiar with or are unsure of. IF you get a warning from Big Mike, heed the warning and back off immediately. Ask that he and the rest of The Gang and others in your posse (from unicorns, dragons, fae, ascended masters, etc) tackle it. You may direct them to a specific spot/location, but please protect yourself and be careful.
Why are they doing this now I hear you ask. Because as a whole, more are waking up. More are walking in true light. More are walking and talking through the energy of LOVE. THIS annoys those buggers. They love it when we are 'fat, dumb and clueless'.
You've heard me say it before and I'm saying it again. It is time for you to BE. BE yourself. BE LOVE. BE. Stand tall and proud in your light. The energy of united is undefeatable. United we stand in Love. United we win.
As always, feel free to comment below and share away! This helps others to find us more easily.
This is a very out of the closet post for me. For those are not aware, I have a very close connection to Mary and Easa/Yeshua/Jesus. I shall leave it at that for now. I do apologize for the lateness of this post if you need to get supplies. This is a completely unplanned post, but one she wishes me to share and share today. Next year there will be a bit more planning involved...
It appears she wants to channel a message to you..
Dear One ~
Today is a Day of Love. Allow Love to return for self and all of God/Goddess' creatures that walk the Earth. Each being has a place, a role that is assisting you in recognizing and embracing the Power of Love. Today, if called, for we never push any agenda on you, spend the day honoring self. Loving Self, as Christine often says, is not selfish, it is imperative. When you love yourself more, you will allow LOVE to enter from ALL.
Gather near you a bouquet of flowers. Roses and Lillies are indeed favorites of mine, but surround yourself with those that you adore. This one act will remind you of Love. Chose a vase of special importance to you. Saving the vase for a special occasion is unnecessary; every day you walk the Earth is special. As you arrange the flowers in the vase, thank each flower for its beauty and ask that it remind you of yours. Put the vase in a place of honor in your home.
Light a candle of purest ingredients. Infuse it with the energy of LOVE. you can easily do this by surrounding your hands around its vessel and feel LOVE pouring down upon you and through you into the candle. Envision the Light Energy of the candle radiating to all the corners of the universe. Sending out waves of LOVE to all and for all to receive. Place this candle near the vase of flowers. By doing so, you create and amplify the power of Love.
If you are called to use essential oils to anoint yourself, look for pure spikenard. Spikenard is a scent of the divine and is to be used in sacred ceremonies such as this or in products that you wish to be sacred. Follow your heart for the correct one for you. Rub a bit of spikenard on the soles of your feet and do so lovingly. Do this with the intention of walking in the Light of the Divine and with the remembrance you are of the Divine. Allow its energies to filter up through your physical body and gently open what you have been protecting. It is time for ALL of you to shine.
If you wish to connect with the one that completes you, may I suggest you spend time today and every day going forward in quiet contemplation with them at a soul level. You will connect soul to soul whether it be with your future mate or child. Listen softly to their whisperings. Listen softly to their suggestions so you may meet and join in love now. Their suggestions will differ from person to person so I shan't say more on this subject now.
Go forth today and every day in LOVE. That is all we ask of you.

How many times have you driven by something, say a home and never noticed the nuances? These nuances are only noticed when you walk by and may even find yourself muttering 'When did they do that?' to find out months ago!
When we go flying by something, anything, we miss the joy of the journey.
While I was on a video call the other night with the Authorization Students, I shared with them our daily 'event' here on island ... The Duck Parade. They walk down our street every evening, jump into the bay, swim to one of the smaller islands to sleep for the night. They reverse the process every morning. I was sharing their evening stroll with the group - it makes me giggle and wondered out loud why they rarely, if ever, fly.
One very smart goddess responded in a nano-second -
'Because they'll miss the joy of the journey.'
Smack my head and point out the obvious why don't you!
While these ducks may have been trained by their moms to walk this route daily as they were perhaps too young to fly initially, they have now obviously chosen to walk. They have created a daily sacred ritual; going off and coming on the island. Are they setting up their own energy grid? Perhaps.
Often they walk smack dab down the middle of our street. Other times, they will meander in the yards. It's never a straight march. They stop. They chat amongst themselves. They gauge what is going on in front as well as behind them. It's very endearing, but what a lesson ~ enjoy your surroundings!
It IS about the journey, not the destination! By rushing to the finish line, and 'being first' you will receive no ribbon, medal or kudos from anyone. You very well will miss beautiful nuances, people and moments along the way due to the rushing.
Why not savor the journey? Is it always easy? Hardly. But once you begin to slow down and embrace the moment, no matter for how long or short, your system does slow down and who knows, maybe you'll get to see the ducks walking down your street too.

The Door has opened, will you step through? July 18 2017
Yesterday was 7 - 7 - 2017.
A door opened as an opportunity for all to step through and reclaim their birthright; their true divinity. This is not the divinity that society has forced upon you (you know, all those lovely shouls), but the divinity of what gets your soul juiced up. What offers those exciting flutters of recognition and knowing when you think about it? What soothes and yet excites your soul?
Yeah, THAT Gateway.
It all started waaay back with the last Full Moon, The THUNDER Moon and boy did that moon come in with a BIG Bang! Many clients were crawling over themselves scrambling to get answers of why they were now being put up against something that seemed insurmountable. Of course it wasn't surmountable at all; it was all a pre-conceived notion of what is or is not surmountable.
You have the power and the knowledge to get through all you desire to get through. However it takes great patience. Something humans are not well known in practicing.
As you know from a previous post, Big Thunder brought in the potential of upheaval and it certainly did for many. The energy 'settled' temporarily and yesterday was the Day of Seven. In fact, when you add up the days; 7 + 1+ 7 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 25 which breaks down to 7. However when you separate the numbers and focus on them as the individual number; 2, 1, 7 and 0, it takes on an entirely new agenda with the '7' taking center stage as it shows itself three times.
(1) ~Time to embrace the Oneness of ALL. A great book that has been out for years that embodies this philosophy is Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard. HIGHLY recommend, but it is not meant for a speed reading. It is meant to savor and ponder.
The '0' represents completion; you are ready to move forward with greater love and clarity of all, including self.
'2' takes on the energy of faith and patience. This of course is frustrating especially if you have seen snippets of the finished line and are in a hurry to get there. I GET that. I've seen where Angel Chatter is going for years; you think by now I'd be there. OH, but looking back I was so NOT ready then. More of me certainly is now and therefore more opportunities are coming knocking at my door.
The '7' is a fun number for it screams - think of starting a spiritual based practice! Helllooo... are you listening? Whether you decide to start or follow through on a business idea that is spiritually related, or not, it IS time to step more visibly into your spiritual side. NO more hiding allowed. This is exactly why the tuition for the first year launch of The Authorization Course was $777.
How to get through it all easier? Stay in your center. It's the ego that creates the drama and that drama can certainly create unease, feelings of unworthiness and more kaka than one can shake a stick at. It's very easy to 'slip' into that kind of crap because it can be quite overwhelming. I get it! But you are better than that stupid ol' ego.
Centered? Are you kidding me? (yes I can hear the grumbling from here). Yes, your center. Your heart. Find a new activity that brings you joy. New? Yes, simply because it will force you to focus and get you out of your way by trying something new. More training of a healing modality, knitting, dancing, cooking, woodworking, chess. The list is endless, but find something new for you to do helps you out of the rut, brings in more joy and that of course is the ultimate goal.
Hope this helps, really I do.

Balance... July 15 2017 2 Comments
So many are in a slight kerfuffle... you know that state where you seem to be put on hold, in a funk, nothing is going according to plan, and the Oh Woe Is Me Syndrome is knocking at your door.
This is part of the birthing process and you are most definitely experiencing labor pains. While not giving birth in the literal sense, you are very clearly undergoing a re-birth of you. You are coming back to your true essence; your divine BEing.
It's about balance you see. Nothing is ever all lollipops and unicorns. If it were, simply by being human you would cease to relish in all the unicorns surrounding you. It's the balance of the light and dark and acknowledging that both exist. All humans have gunk; it's called karma. The karma shows itself in a myriad of ways; relationships, repetitive patterns and the gunk in general that could stall you for days and if left unattended, months or years.
Don't go there please. Embrace the balance.
You ARE a BEing of Light otherwise you wouldn't be reading this and gathering a bit more understanding of self. It's through this understand and acknowledging and LOVING both ends of the spectrum that all can more easily fall into place for you. You know, those things you desire in the deepest core of your heart.
It's about balance. Even your daily universe has this; day and night. Something as simple as the 'sun going down or rising' is shown to you daily; the balance of life. You give no thought to this as it is natural, right? Your life is no different. In each life balance exists. It's all how you embrace both sides of the coin so to speak and allow one to go a bit deeper to unleash what has been hidden for so long.
It's in the dark of the night that more is revealed. It is in the depth of your soul that truth lives. Why? For it is YOU and only YOU. BE still within. The more energy you spend in attempting to squelch these energies, the more uncomfortable it gets. The lid that you have kept on you to 'fit in' has at the very least become uncorked. Stop trying to prevent this beautiful movement forward.
It's time the lid is thrown off allowing you to emerge in all your glory, including the gunk. Remember, nobody is perfect. Far from it. For in that beautiful imperfection lies the beauty.
Embrace the balance.
Embrace the beauty.
Embrace the LOVE.
Below are photos taken on the same day on our little island. Nature shows us the truth. Light and Dark. It's not Light vs. Dark. Acknowledging that both exist will propel you quicker on your chosen path than you may realize or can imagine.
To add a bit of fun... catch the gentleman upside down in the water... Embracing the light in the most joy-filled of ways! On the flip side, there is great beauty in the dark as well.
It's all about balance.

This month's full moon on July 9th is also called the Thunder Moon within Native American Cultures. Why thunder? Logically, it is when in the northern hemisphere the chance of thunderstorms are the highest than any other time of the year. This is also the time that the young bucks begin to grow their antlers; they are stepping into their power. This gives hints of how this moon shall affect you.
Back to the energy of thunderstorms...
Thunderstorms hold within them all the elements:
- Fire - lightening
- Water - rain
- Wind - durr
- Earth - where lightening strikes. If on beaches, it creates the powerful crystal, fulgurite (sometimes called Lightening Stone)
- Metal - while not in the truest sense, but the ozone that is created with lightening strikes has a metal 'taste' to it.
What does all this mean and how can you harness it?
First grab your crystal babies; especially your clear quartz. Place them outside. Clear quartz is The Master Crystal and contains within it all the elements. It gets absolutely giddy when placed outside during a thunderstorm, or in this case The Thunder Moon. This particular moon's energy will clear and charge your beauties. One size can fit all at times!
Due to a thunderstorm's intensity, it also brings with it that same kind of intensity within your personal life. Great feelings of squeamishness, unworthiness, frustration, failure can all bubble up during this time. This is the perfect time to hand over these inferior thoughts to The Gang for some serious LOVE.
It is a time of moving forward with greater speed. Folks, seemingly at random, will ply you with new ideas of what you could do to make your life better. LISTEN well, for through them the angels are talking.
IF you are an adventurous sort, go outside during a thunderstorm.
(I release all blame for being silly if lightening strikes too close to you and you get hurt.)
Set your intention. What do you wish to clear? What do you wish to manifest? As all full moons go, there is great power within this one.
IF a storm is brewing or raging, keep track of lightening strikes and how close it is. (count seconds after a lightening strike. Each second roughly gauges how far in mileage the lightening struck. PLEASE if too close, get inside). IF safe, feel the energy build within you. Feel your power surge. BEcome more alive. As the storms moves on, feel your soul own this new found energy and BEcome one with it all.
As soon as you are back inside to dryer climates, write down everything that comes to mind. These thoughts may seem random and yet, they may not. You are receiving messages from The Gang at a very fast pace, so be sure to have the paper or journal laid out before you go outside. Once all is written down, it is advised that you don't dwell upon what was written down, thought of, etc. for approximately one moon cycle. This allows the energy of the Thunder Moon and/or Thunderstorm to do its cleansing and propelling you forward.
It is most definitely a scenario of Ask, Release, Receive.
IF there is no thunderstorm during this Full Moon, repeat the above exercise. Set the intention that you allow the storm to surge through you to clear unwanted energies and fill you with great power. The greater power of LOVE. As you as getting clearer, you realize that LOVE does conquer all. LOVE fuels all. LOVE is ALL. Even if dry outside, I recommend you do not bring your journal outside with you initially. Spend quality time with the moon's energy first. If it is a lovely evening in your world, you may eventually bring out your sacred journal and begin writing. Trust me, you will miss out on the fun if you bring out the journal and write from the get go... be patient!
Chat with Angel Auriel, The Angel of the Moon. She helps to illuminate your chosen path with greater clarity. She will most definitely surprise you with insights of where your path is taking you, who is going to be involved, and what some of the results will be.
A magical moon indeed.

How DOES one move forward? July 07 2017 2 Comments
HI! I'm back... been a bit AWOL as I've settled in true beach mode and honoring my rejuvenation time. Thank you ALL for wing slapping me and reminding me to tend to me as well. While still at Da Beach, I'm catching up on sleep, painting, writing, editing, and yes sitting on my butt watching the dolphins.
This IS part of the plan of moving forward.
Obviously one cannot scamper off to a barrier island every time a life shift is looming. While it's a lovely thought, it's not always feasible. So The Gang and you have prompted me to share some signs that a life event is fast approaching and how best to manage it.
Here are some signs that a biggun' is approaching:
- You are disgruntled about 'it' - 'it' can be defined as a relationship, lifestyle, dietary, etc.
- You feel angst regarding 'it'
- You feel anxious regarding 'it'
- Thinking about 'it' does not bring about warm fuzzies
- Things are not going according to 'plan' (who's plan is it anyways?)
Those are some of the emotions that 'it' is not in your best interests any longer for you have moved on and are now ready for people, events, food, etc. to be better aligned with your energy. Those energies that support you, nurture you, love you for YOU, not what you can do for them.
However, and this is a BIG however, if left unheeded - meaning one doesn't do anything to acknowledge this inner shift and take action to heal it or move beyond it, 'it' eventually becomes the proverbial pimple at the end of the nose. You are left no recourse except to now attend to 'it'.
Yes, you may go down into the Depths of Your Despair... I have. It's not fun. There is no sugar coating it. Actually it's pretty crappy. You cry. You moan. You feel sorry for yourself. You play the What If Game (what IF I had done/not done 'that' sort of thing). Yep, I've done that too.
During this adventure, you enter the Seven Stages of Grief:
- Shock and Denial
- Pain and Guilt
- Anger and Bargaining
- Upward Turn
- Acceptance and Hope
If this is new way of thinking for you, it is a time honored system recognized and written about extensively by Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her book, Death & Dying. Highly recommend as we undergone so many ways of dying. This is where Azrael comes into play. Azrael is universally recognized as the Angel of Death, but that just sounds so morbid. He has asked to be now called, Angel of Transition. I personally find this much more pleasing and acceptable in my mindset. We are always in the flux of transitioning into something. Some just happen to be bigger than others.
I learned YEARS ago that I like, no LOVE easy. Granted I still make things more difficult than they need be at times, but overall, my life events/adventures have become easier for now I am recognizing them quicker - on my time thus leaving me more in control of how to best handle 'it' in the most joy-filled and love-filled way.
All thanks to Azrael and the rest of The Gang.
What is happening out there?! June 20 2017
Certainly it seems that the world is going to you know where in a hand basket.
It seems that Daily Acts of Fear is the new norm; where will it happen next?
It seems that relationships, ones thought to make the history books are falling apart.
It seems that nothing is going according to plan.
Our friend, Webster, offers this definition of the word seem:
give the impression or sensation of being something or having a particular quality.
It seems... all it seems is that there is an impression of something happening and it ain't pretty.
Bear with me....
As the summer solstice heralds in tomorrow with lovely new energies, one may think, what's the point? The point is that NOW is the time for you.
You see, tomorrow, June 21 light and dark are in balance. As the light continued its slow and steady pace to balance, dark got annoyed. (this almost reads like a bad fairy tale). As light gained power, dark became bratty. Dark doesn't want light to win. Dark cannot do its thing in the light. Dark acts out. Dark is doing naughty.
In the midst of all of this, the light shines ever brighter. In the midst of all of this, light does nothing except to BE. In the midst of this, light spreads its warmth, love and joy. For when light shines, no shadow is present.
Look at the photo... there is NO shadow of the flame... dark cannot be present in the light. (seriously, try this at home - no shadow!) When you play in the dark, the dark wins. The dark wins by having you succumb to its lower thinking ideas; not good enough, I'll wait to see what the expert says before I take action, What else is there for me to do? When these thoughts become present and take hold, dark begins to win and until one candle is lit to shine the light, the dark continues its heavy pace.
BE the light. Yes, may be more difficult than it sounds. Meditate. Pray. Light a literal candle. Dance. Sing. Scream. Get out the frustrations.
But come back to center. Come back to light. Taking one step each day and choosing light no dark can enter. There is much to accomplish still. There is much to experience still. There is much to BE still.
It seems the light may just win after all.

The Day the Angel Goddess went mum... June 13 2017 1 Comment
As the world now knows, The Course has launched.
What a birthing experience! The support from family, friends, clients, customers and YOU have made it possible.
Thank you most sincerely.
However, a funny thing happened on the way to launching. There is most definitely a series of events that play into the final outcome (always does).
The week prior I had some dental work; two crowns and a filling to be exact - all in one sitting. My mouth was open for over three hours. While not the end of the world by any means, it's not typical, even for me - one who loves to chat. Talk about a clearing! In the midst of this, Honey Guy was sick. He's never sick. He experienced a low grade fever, coughing, the works. He recovered in a few days with about 36 hours to spare before our beautiful client came in for her private weekend. Lots of food to prep, rooms to clean and packages to assemble. Stepping forward a bit more in the spotlight.
Allergies then hit me during the weekend when again my mouth is open. Okay, this time I was chatting, but still. It did not close with exception of sleep ... or chewing of food.
Our weekend timeline was pushed forward as she wished to be home early afternoon on Sunday; it was their wedding anniversary after all! Push we did. By Sunday morning all were thrilled with the outcome, although a tad tired.
By Sunday afternoon, the voice began to go. 'I had my sexy voice on'. It was deep, hoarse and gravely; well you get the idea. I drank my tea; calendula laced with honey to coat and baby it.
The voice continued to wobble on Monday.
By Launch Day of The Course, the voice was gone. Kaput, it had completely left the building. Friends and family were horrified. Me? Just tired and not worried.
Why? Because my voice is now heard within the course. For The Course is the biggest adventure I've ever done publicly. I put my foot, oh who am I kidding, my entire being, out there for the world to see. For better, or worse, I am now being completely heard for as many that wish to listen and learn from me.
As I put this piece of work forth, my throat said, 'time for rest now' and rest it indeed did. True there were a few other physical ailments that tagged along for the ride, but ultimately - my throat chakra under went its major healing for this life and it needed a bit of rest.
You see, we communicate in such a wide variety of ways; not just with our voice. We communicate with our hair styles, clothing, jewelry, aromas (perfume, cologne), decor of our homes and yes especially the words we use.
All of these forms of communication are linked to a variety of chakras, but certainly throat is one of the them; expression. I've known for years that this is the one I was to work with and conquer in this life. My lesson? Finding comfort in speaking my truth. Feeling safe and secure that I had something of value to share with others. Sharing information that is at times obscure and certainly not your run of the mill coffee conversation. Some in my inner circle find that humorous since I love chatting. I chat it up with the best of them on a regular basis. The secret is I don't chat with just anyone about anything. I don't share who I am and what I do easily. But NOW with The Course out there, guess I can't hide any more now can I?
It's time to BE you.

The Full Moon and Her energies June 08 2017 1 Comment
The upcoming full moon is in the sign of Sagittarius. This particular moon harkens to all to stand in their power (I love reading this AFTER I post the Daily Channeled message - still love those confirmations)
This particular moon is also called the Strawberry Moon. This signifies it is time to harvest strawberries. It is also called the Rose Moon and Hot Moon. I'm going to go with rose, for rose signifies great love to me. However, keep in mind that most rose varieties also have thorns... life is not always about sweetness and celebration!
With this combination of Sagittarius and Rose Moon, marks a strong humanitarian streak, which is the essence of caring: Act as though your life depends on it. For it does. You are creating dharma.
In other words, It's a time to BE. BE yourself. This means BEing silly, spontaneous, joy-filled. Be forewarned though dear Chatterer, there is a sense of urgency that is underlying in this moon's energy. A sense of being reckless (notice the absence of 'BE' here). Do stay alert to your surroundings. There is an undercurrent of not nice and you empaths have felt this brewing for at least a few days and unfortunately we have witnessed such events globally with various acts of fear. Also notice I do not use the word terrorism here. Each act, whether it is a full scale act or more personal, is an Act of Fear by the initiator. It is up to each person individually how they respond (again notice I do not use the word 'victim'). Do you lash out equally, or do you step back and understand the 'whys' better?
Is it karma or dharma at play? Karma is the 'I deserve this from a past life' or dharma - the healing of karma combined with paying it forward energy.
Can these acts be avoided? Not really. Each one is a call to arms at various levels. Each one is a call to BE. Each one is a remembrance that LOVE is indeed the answer.
Why do they need to happen then? Simply put, to wake up humanity. If you think about it, each act of fear rallies people from around the world in love and peace. However, as long as these have been happening and as long as I given it thought, I have noticed that we, as humans, have the attention span of a gnat. Meaning it's not long before we rush back to comfort, the dullness, the routine of life and forget the event for it doesn't affect us directly. However, with each event a few stay in that essence of Love and Peace. The tide of Love builds. The tide of understanding grows taller. The tide of BEing becomes more permanent. The more that stay there. The more that can stay in the essence of BEing, the more likely these kinds of events will cease.
Bottom line? Take charge. Don't allow another's action to dictate how you act! Isn't it time, past time really, that you called the shots so to speak? Don't you wish for a life filled with more ease, peace, love, joy and great abundance? Of course you do. We all do. Then stop allowing another's thoughts, words, deeds dictate your life. Move forward with all the gusto you have within. Look at the ways you deal with each situation. Do you meditate, binge eat, exercise, draw, scream? All can point to a way you can help others.
Each thing we do is a way we cope. Each thing we do is a way we offer to heal ourselves. Your very actions inspire others.
Hmmm.... betcha never thought of it that way before, had you?
Please leave comments below here... it helps others find us!
In order to ALLOW, one must BE... June 01 2017
We've chatted about allowing recently. You know, allowing others to step in to help and not feeling less than by doing so.
How easy is it to allow? Apparently not as as easy as ordering a pizza. Of course it all varies from event or yearning to event and yearning. What I have noticed and have begun to embrace more is the Art of BEing. True, you probably have heard me use this phrase before, but bear with me for a few more moments.
When we are in the moment of BEing, we ARE allowing. How cool is that?!
When we are present in our energy, we allow. When we are in the moment, all is indeed right with the world and we are not pondering on who is going to call, what shoe may or may not drop next. We aren't even wondering what is for dinner! (perhaps I am getting a tad hungry with all these food metaphors...)
When we are present; something that meditation can offer us, or yoga or conscious walking (you know, walking and not talking. Walking and allowing self to see the beauty that is being present to us.) It's in these moments our hearts fill. It is in these moments we sigh. It is in these moments we know we are enough.
If we are enough, and of course we are, we are BEing. If we are BEing, and we are, we are allowing. Nothing is forced. It is what it is. We are not judging; we realize all, including self, have foibles. We are stunning, light-filled, full. We are at peace.
What angel to call upon for this? My go to for BEing, is Shamael, wings down. Why? Shamael is the Angel of Harmony. Try this exercise. It's one Shamael had me perform years ago for the first time and I still practice on a somewhat regular basis. It's a bit unorthodox, but the results from a BEing perspective may just blow your mind.
Wash a pot or two with your eyes closed. Yes, you read correctly, eyes closed. Of course once 'completed', double check to make sure you got it all, but for the first stage, eyes closed. Why bother? You have no choice but to be present. You are scrubbing away and feeling the pot. You are feeling the bumps (most likely food that requires removing). You are feeling the smoothness. What a lovely reminder; all have bumps, but once acknowledged all is smooth once more.
It's a minor lesson in gratitude. You've used this pot countless times, have you ever thanked it? Most likely not. As you are scrubbing with your eyes closed, give thanks for all those yummy (or not so yummy) meals it helped you prepare. As you scrub with your eyes closed, what other subtle nuances are you now aware of? I'm betting your breathing slows. I'll even wager you have a little smile growing. I'll even go out on a limb here and say your entire being begins to relax. Everything begins to s.l.o.w. down.
Why? Because you are now BEing. As you settle in this energy, remember what it feels like. Give it a one word label. This little ol' label will help you get there next time; perhaps even without washing a pot.
Let me know how this exercise goes for you. I'm really curious to see if others relax the same way I do.
Remember, even the angels relax a bit now and then by fluffing up their wings and halo, or pot scrubbing...
It's the 'little' things... May 25 2017 2 Comments
Sorry for me being a bit AWOL recently, but doing three shows back to back took its toll on us. However, without further adieu, The Gang popped in the middle of the night last night and began filling my heart with such joy it's impossible to not share.
It's the little things that not only keep you going, but fuel you.
As an example, my folks return from a 30 day wandering trip in Spain, Italy and Switzerland. They will be snug in our home this evening for hopefully a delicious (new recipe) meal, plenty of vino (It IS National Wine Day after all) and lotsa laughter, love and great stories.
I look forward to every juicy morsel.
It's the little things.
A client who has become a friend popped in on her personal trek last night for dinner. While she only stayed for a few hours, it was lovely to just BE with each other.
It's the little things.
I awoke this morning to the rain softly falling, the birds welcoming in a new day and the 'kittens' snuggling in close.
It's the little things.
Yesterday I arranged some M&Ms in the faery villages in the backyard only to have the M&MS GONE in a matter of hours. I imagine the fae taking them and having a party. My husband says the squirrels got them.
It's the little things.
It's having a rule with my husband that we don't talk work until we kiss. Even if it is a virtual kiss.
It's the little things.
It's playing with Gabi and chatting with her as we go for our daily magical adventures and seeing all sorts of things from the very real to the very real, but energy creatures.
It's the little things.
It's conversing with my truly amazing children via text to say I Love You because I can and sharing new recipes or tempting pictures of new recipes completed.
It's the little things.
It's chatting with The Gang. Listening to their pushing and often prodding to step out to share their stories, guidance and humor to clients and future students.
It's the little things.
It's these little things, or not so little things that when categorized into one word that spells out
'Princess and the Pea' May 09 2017
Do you remember the fairy tale, Princess and the Pea? I had one of those moments not too long ago...
The other week I was out simply pulling up some dandy lions. Since I wasn't digging or doing anything laborious, I kept on my sturdy flip flops and pulled up loads of weeds and continued on my merry way. Two days later I was at our beach home and my foot began to bother me... a lot.
While I saw a splinter; in there, the little guy just would not leave. It appeared to be quite happy taking up space in my body and was in for the duration. There wasn't enough soaking in warm salt water or peroxide that would convince it to leave the premises. I knew it entered on the Day of The Dandy Lion (we have many plants with tiny little thorns in the yard)
It quickly became an annoying little bugger.
I continued on. I performed massive amounts of gardening as the pile of garbage bags filled with weeds will attest and much to the chagrin of our local trash collectors. Each night I would soak my foot. It WAS annoying. Certain shoes seemed to annoy it more. It was red and slightly warm. Walking on the sand was not as joyous as it normally is.
FINALLY it popped out Thursday night; over five days after its entry. It quickly fell onto the carpet never to be seen again, so the picture is a pen mark on my finger to show you exactly how tiny this little guy was. It WAS tiny! Its message had been delivered and lesson learned so it was now ready to be a distant memory.
But it let its presence be known in a BIG way. The lesson? Wear shoes all the time while gardening obviously. However, the analogy of the story, is that if something is not to your liking, the angels will provide a way to slow you down, re-evaluate, heal so you may move forward with the utmost grace, joy and of course love. My lesson? BE in the moments of BEing more often. Allow all to emerge. Do not force anything in or in this case, out. All works itself out in that blessed phrase, 'Divine Timing'.
It's when those seemingly little things can wreak havoc in our lives because we begin to focus on their annoying presence, much like a splinter. When we allow ourselves to BE, we give ourselves permission to pay attention to nuances and heed their warning. Give the 'splinter' a chance to leave and not become a problematic boulder in the scheme of things.
How to accomplish the removal of the pea? One can attempt to ignore it, but when did ignoring something solve anything? It doesn't and you know this well. Look at the lesson you are experiencing. How would you do things differently? Does this little inconvenience bring to light an aspect of you loving yourself more in a different way? (for this scenario, loving my feet more by wearing proper shoes is a no brainer and Honey Guy would testify to this in a nano-second).
I honestly love the messages and little lessons (pun intended) The Gang provides on a daily basis. Daily? Absolutely. It's in the nuances of our daily life that shifts happen and we can become aware of them all and BE.
When a statue talks to you...are you crazy or... May 05 2017
This guy... what a boss! Never let anyone tell you inanimate objects, especially sacred ones, don't have an opinion.
Don't believe me?
We were living in Massachusetts and a local store was going out of business. I had purchased a few sundry things there previously and simply loved the energy and her entire line of products. Everything was Asian, ancient and had an energy of being sacred behind it. A truly magical store and one I regret not seeing flourish.
Off I went to wander and explore; not intending to purchase a thing. It was more of a scouting expedition.
As I was meandering around the store, the statue below started yakking at me and yakking LOUDLY. It wanted to come home with me. I try, repeat try to be of the mindset that everything has a spot or a 'home' before purchasing especially one of this stature and energetic presence. I couldn't think of one right away, so I walked out. Yes I walked out initially without the statue.
BEFORE I got home, I thought of a great in the family room. That was an ideal spot! (or so I thought)
Turn around I did...
I entered the store and approached the statue. I swear it smiled at me! Yes, all these years later I still remember the event.
I purchased it and gently placed it in the back seat of the car and began driving home.
'By the way, I don't wish to be placed where you think. I want to go on the mantle.'
WHAT? Did that thing in the back seat just start talking to me?
'Yes, I did and I am going on the mantle.'
I now drop my mouth and start literally arguing with an inanimate object that is lying on the backset of my car.
'No, the mantle isn't wide enough for you.'
'I'm going on the mantle so I can bless all who enter.'
'Nice idea, but it's too narrow.'
'I'm going on the mantle.'
And this continued for the eight miles left of our journey home.
I placed it where I thought it ought to go. It didn't look right.
Where did it end up?
The mantle. It looked perfect there. Everybody loved it there and yes, it did indeed bless all who entered.
After we moved from that home, it then wished to be placed on top of a particular cabinet. It's a rather small cabinet and always finds a small wall to be up against. Buddha LOVES this set up. It/He LOVES the crystal it holds. It/He LOVES the candle holder in front.
When we moved from that house, much went into storage, including Buddha, cabinet and all. I have no idea who he argued with in the four years it was in storage, but that is their problem, not mine. We moved into our New Digs and once more a small wall was found for the small cabinet along with the crystal and candle and of course Buddha.
Peace and blessings reign once more and as the saying goes:
All is right with the world.
The Art of Allowing May 04 2017 1 Comment
The very word allowing is rather empowering as I recently experienced.
You know the dance; having to do so much on your own and if somebody offers to help you find yourself going in behind them to 'fix it'.
yeaaahhh... me too.
My AHA Event happened a couple of months ago while in Charlotte, NC for the SHIFT Conference. This was the first show that Honey Guy wasn't able to be with me for not only the physical love support but all the Sherpa Duties he carries so well. I had three lovely goddesses all ready to go on the day of, unfortunately all were occupied at check in and unload time for me.
I had the entire day ahead of me, so there was no rushing involved... really! I was being slow and methodical, just like the turtle.
As I was unpacking the car, a young man goes by and says he is a volunteer and can he help me.
'No, I've got it, but thanks!' With a big smile on my face.
'You are a strong woman who isn't used to help. Will you allow me to help you?'
BAM, I did an immediate 180 and said YES, I will allow you to help me. Help he did for the next three hours.
Allow. So very powerful. For the remainder of the weekend every time I saw him, I pointed him out and shared the story ending with 'I allowed him to help me!' I savored that energy and you know what? It was more powerful and poignant than ever. I relaxed. I let go of the reigns and allowed assistance in with a BIGGER smile and open heart.
What will you allow in your life today? While we are fully aware of lower energies, let's focus on the GREAT energies that are also afoot and allow them to enter into your world to assist, expand, explore, support, comfort, and even periodically wing slap. You can take some weight off your shoulders.
Not all assistance comes from The Gang. Many are disguised as a human as I now fully embrace.
If you have ever had one of those days let alone weeks where you think the world is coming to an end.
And it is... figuratively of course coming to an end.
So much is gurgling, blowing, streaming up right now that is karmically related to each of you individually. We can thank Mercury going retrograde along with three other planets during this adventure to churn up so much that is ready to be loved and loved well.
Think about the triggers you may have experienced in very recent times. Do they feel familiar? How do they feel familiar? Not standing in your power perhaps? Holding your tongue so to speak? Feeling taken advantage of?
All of these, and much more, can harken to a past life that is more than desiring to be illuminated and loved fully.
Each karmic 'adventure' has presented itself for a very real reason. That reason? To illuminate it to YOU thus allowing you to recognize it, see 'it' for what it is worth and incorporate it into your being. When it is incorporated, it is no longer ignored, sloughed off, counted as inconsequential or demeaned. It is then recognized as part of you. A puzzle piece that helps to complete the entire beautiful being known as you.
If you have ever made a puzzle, isn't it somewhat infuriating when there is a piece or two or three missing? The OCD in me wants to turn the house upside down to find those pieces. Turn that abstract example towards you; think of the puzzle as you... a new piece is always presenting itself in order to 'click in' and help to complete the finished product... Your complete well being physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Healing takes place on all of those levels and may appear in those levels independent of another. Typically one pays more attention to the physical; migraine, flu, bad knee/hip, etc. What about the distrust of authority? (mental). What about pulling away from a church or organized religion or other spiritual practices? (spiritual). What about thoughts or knowings or depression or the flip side - euphoria? (emotional). All of these can easily tap into the past life and present themselves now for healing. Triggers are just that, triggers. They offer the opening of a door to recognize another piece to complete you.
Ignoring aspects of self are no longer a true option. Keep in mind when something is ignored, it can have the potential to grow quietly stronger without your knowledge until you are then forced to look at it because you are now backed into the corner.
It IS time to embrace all aspects of you. It is time to allow the puzzle pieces to present themselves in softer ways allowing you to love yourself more completely.
It is time for YOU.
Chat with Big Mike. Ask that he use his sword to cut through the kaka gently, lovingly to allow more pieces to joyfully integrate within you.
Remember, you are worthy of it ALL.
Moon River and all it portends... April 26 2017
I was VERY restless last night. The song, Moon River kept playing in my head...
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
The signs we get.... April 20 2017 3 Comments
I was blessed to have three of my grandparents live well into their nineties. Each one of the was incredible in their own right. I loved them all dearly.
As an example, Grandpa would have us out watching the ants play baseball, watching submarine races and keep us enthralled with stories of life in the early times in New York City.
Grandma, his wife, was the spitfire; small but mighty and very cognizant until the very end. She was the cog in the family, always there with great hugs, laughter and tidbits of wisdom, when you were ready to listen.
My other Grandma, Mary, is the one I wish to share about today. The last months of her life were confusing. Without drudging up family drama, nobody is quite sure of her last days other than she had a roof over her head, plenty of food, etc. She was taken care of, but we are also fairly certain there was 'mischief' afoot; that's me being nice about her care giver.
I was her first grandchild and the only for over seven years. We built a bond that was unbreakable that lasted a lifetime and now apparently beyond...
Grandma died many years ago and as with the passing or skipping over of our loved ones, we mourned. We cried. We laughed. We questioned. She skipped over in the month of June and by September, she began leaving signs for us.
The first gift was found in the center of our upstairs hallway. Right smack dab in the center of the hall. The hall we all traversed on a regular basis going to and fro to bed. On the day in question, I was walking from the office to our bedroom and lo and behold there was a very small Mary Medallion (one of the blue ones). I quickly said 'Hi Grandma' and put it in a chest she had given me from Poland to keep it safe.
Second gift; I shared the story with my mom a few months later when she was visiting and went to show her. The Mary Medallion had reproduced! There were now TWO medallions, but this one was the solid silver one in the photo. Before you question, the chest is rather empty with the exception of gifts from her.
Third gift; I have a Kwan Yin statue on my nightstand. Over one year after the second gift, I found a Mary Medallion was now safely nestled in Kwan Yin's hand! This is the second blue one.
Fourth gift; fast forward three or four years. We had just moved into our New Digs. We had been able to put much of the house in order and were now in the Lower Level (aka finished basement) and putting away all things Angel Chatter. My husband and I were chatting away about the house that was quickly becoming our home, our dreams of the future and just general talk. He became very quiet. As I glanced across the room to him, he was looking at something in his hand.
'I just found a Mary Medallion on the rug. It wasn't there before.'
'Did you say HI to Grandma?'
This is the fourth medallion in my hand - the very opaque one. I figure she wished to see our new home and make sure once again all was well in our world.
Fifth gift; Mom has now found one in the middle of their bed AFTER she made it!
You see, our loved ones often visit us. All of us. Sometimes they leave a token of their love; the Mary Medallion as an example. Some leave an aroma in their wake that we associate with them. Some may allow you to feel their presence in the form of a hug, a thought, a gentle breeze or a song. Sometimes we are trying so desperately to hear from them, we inadvertently don't allow these gifts to come forward in our consciousness.
Relax! Allow yourself to receive these messages. They will come in a variety of ways and each one is meant to catch your attention. They are only a whisper away.
Have you had a visit? I would love to hear about it below! You can always chat with Zadkiel to help clear the way a bit better for you to better see, feel, hear, know of their visits.
Guess what? I do NOT smudge! April 11 2017 3 Comments
I do not smudge at all any more. I use to and did for years...until we moved to Baltimore.
Here's the story:
We moved into a 'new' home in the Baltimore area. It was gorgeous. It was nestled in a grove of trees in a very small and homey neighborhood. We were renting, being new to the entire area, we weren't sure where we wished to plop permanently (as you will read, it's a GREAT thing we rented). As a welcome gift, our landlord left us not only a bottle of wine but a rather large smudge stick! Did she know me or what?
Typically, I would have jumped right in to smudge the entire house. The Gang, however, kept me busy doing MANY things; unpacking, getting settled and more. It was months and months before that smudge stick got used.
When I did finally get around to smudging, I followed all the 'rules of engagement':
- Started on the top floor
- Started on the top floor in far left corner
- Worked counter clockwise
- Took my time and lingered when necessary
- Repeated on the next two lower levels (basements count too whether they are finished or not!)
Funny thing happened afterwards. While the house felt GREAT for a day or so, it felt terrible within four days. Yes really terrible.
I let the energy settle and observed.
At that time a 'stray dog' (his term, not ours) came to live with us... a friend of one of our daughters who was very troubled. While his bedroom was in the basement (very nicely furnished by the way), he would report hearing voices and footsteps regularly going past his bedroom door.
Even the cats, Linus and Schroeder, would only go downstairs to use their bathroom and scoot back upstairs as quickly as their cute little bodies would carry them.
I saged again and this time really focused on the basement/lower level.
It got worse. Again. Voices increased, footsteps louder and now it was affecting the entire household. Everyone was getting agitated.
Focusing on anything was next to impossible.
This cycle continued a few more rounds; just had to be sure and up until this adventure, saging had always worked!
Turns out the land was cursed. In fact, if you notice I put the term 'new' in quotes at the top of this post. This is because the first house was built in the 1980s and had burned to the ground. The owner rebuilt it. While is was gorgeous and flowed beautifully, the enery was off. Very off. It was cursed via Native Americans (not sure what tribe, didn't ask). You see, Native Americans hold saging sacred and it enhances their energy and connection to the beyond. So every time I saged, I was literally empowering them!
I saged no more. We left that house within a few months of the AHA and never looked back.
NOW I only use my Sacred Mister, Clearing. This is infused with not only the amethyst crystal, but Archangel Zadkiel's energy which is aligned with the Violet Flame. All transmutative energies. Taking that kaka and putting it back to its original state of purity. Nobody gets empowered in a not so nice way with this baby and ALL feel better! Plug for a product? Sure, but as you hopefully know by now, I believe in the power of each product I create and use them all myself. In fact I'm often their guinea pig!
Please think about how the saging affects you before and afterwards; even a few days or weeks afterwards. Does it still feel yummy? If it does, you are safe. If you feel any of the symptoms above, please discontinue.
As always, I look forward to reading your comments below!
Much love and GREAT clearing!
One never knows... April 07 2017 2 Comments
We left our home yesterday ahead of schedule and started our trek towards Cincinnati for the Victory of Light Expo. Everything was going swimmingly well. The rain clouds had broken and rays of sunshine seemed to lead the way. We were enjoying the easy conversation of playing catch up as we had been both slammed all week with a variety of things. As always, I placed Big Mike around our car:
Archangel Michael to the Right
Archangel Michael to the Left
Archangel Michael to the Front
Archangel Michael to the Back
Archangel Michael Above
Archangel Michael Below
Please protect this car wherever it goes
About 25 minutes into our trek, Honey Guy realizes he forgot his medication.
A quick run down - could he go without it? Ummmm NO. I would be the proverbial wreck all weekend and worse than a bear to honey in monitoring his food intake.
Turn around we did. Him complaining most of the time. :)
Back in the car once more it started to rain. The ride began to feel a bit more gloomy, but we carried on laughing, dozing, listening to an audio book all woven with periodic body break stops.
About three or four hours into our trip, traffic came to a rolling stop. An ambulance went racing by. After a bit of deliberation and an exit glaring at us, we jumped off the highway and took a slight detour that paralleled the highway. NOW I could see what the cause was; an 18-wheeler had knife jacked and its cab was hanging over the side of the highway down a long and steep incline.
We could have been involved in that mess directly had we not forgotten the medication.
I'll take the delay any day of the week, wouldn't you? We arrived safely in Cincy, albeit very tired, but are now taking the morning to rest a bit, write blogs (obviously) and off this afternoon to set up for the show.
Morale of the story? You never know how one seemingly insignificant event can affect the remainder of your life. Allow delays to be an adventure. Allow the scenery, enjoy the ride for you never know what is around the corner.
I look forward to reading some of your Big Mike encounters below!
The first backward dance of Mercury is about to happen; April 9, 2017 and goes until May 3, 2017.
When Mercury goes retrograde it may seem like all hell is breaking loose and we run for cover. If one does that, it becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy then, doesn't it? It really isn't that bad, or certainly doesn't have to be.
Why not be better prepared vs. ignoring it?
Why not acknowledge this inner gift and take advantage of this quiet time to do a bit of soul searching?
That's the gift of Mercury Retrograding. This time it hits in Taurus. While I am far from an astrology expert, I do known Taurus is the bull. The Gang is sharing that because mercury is hitting during this astrological sign, one can become more bull-headed or certainly encounter folks that are being bull headed.
IF this happens, take that literal and proverbial step back. Look at the larger picture. Why is one (including yourself) act this way? Is it out of fear? Is it out not feeling understood? Is it out of not feeling adequate? Is it...? All of these not so nice emotions can surface during a retrograde.
Here are some of the more common hiccups that can occur during a Mercury in Retrograde, no matter your astrological sign:
- Electronics going haywire - best back up your computers
- Travel mishaps - lost tickets, canceled flights, etc.
- Crying jags
To make Mercury and its backward dance more effective for you, keep these tips in mind:
- If possible, do not sign any contracts
- Do not start a new endeavor (for this reason The Angel Chatter Authorization Course will not launch until early May)
- Eat more healthily - this gives you better fuel to handle the hiccups
- Journal - get out those icky thoughts
- Allow your intuition/heart to guide you - tell the ego to go sit in the corner with a lollipop
- Take advantage of the quiet time to do some inner reflecting. Most lifestyles are incredibly busy these days... who has time to BE? Take the time now.
- Meditate. Light one of our sacred Angel Candles to deeper connect with The Gang and yourself
So you see, no need to run for cover! Take advantage of this blessing! Use the Askfirmation:
Why is it so easy to go with the flow?
And remember to allow The Gang to answer for you... NO need to find answers with Askfirmations!
So is it all doom and gloom during a retrograde? Of course not. As with all things, it greatly depends on your interpretation and reaction to any event. IF there are contracts and deals lined up to happen during retrograde, as an example, just be sure to cross those 'T' and dot those 'I'... Read every word on every page. If you don't understand something, ask! Keep asking until you do understand. Viola, no more mis-communication.
I look forward to reading your responses below!
The perfect scenario... April 04 2017
We arrived home late on Sunday after an intense, powerful and loving one day show held about one hour away from home. In a 'perfect' world I take Mondays off after a show, or the day after we arrive home, to rest, regroup and hopefully recharge.
The plans were 'spoiled' this time. You see, my brother was in from Germany on business. As luck would have it, his office is mere minutes away from our home! I was giddy to get to share our new life with him and have him over for dinner. This of course meant cleaning, prepping for dinner which includes yummy dessert things.
He LOVES chocolate, so chocolate brownies it was with a caramel center sprinkled with nuts. It's a multi baking process so while the first round was in the oven I puttered in the kitchen tidying things up. As the second round commenced, I desperately wanted to get in the garden to dig, pull up weeds and plant some flowers I had purchased last week; it helps me to ground and reconnect. I had twenty minutes to do all of this.
Of course I could have taken the easy way out and put the timer on my phone. Oh no, that's too easy! I told The Gang I needed to be back in the house within twenty minutes, flowers planted and all so the brownies wouldn't burn. I left it at that.
NINETEEN minutes to the second four people starting texting me. Bing, Beep, Chime. Bing, Beep, Chime... I caught the time and realized the happy flowers were all safely planted. I went inside just as the oven timer went off; brownies smiling happily from the oven.
You see, it can be that simple; Ask AND Receive. Let go of the concepts that your requests will not be heard. Let go of the control factor and checking the clock. Simply let go and trust. They DO hear every request you make. They DO act upon every request you make; it's up to you to allow them to help you.
Just to show off the brownies... a bit...
