Isn't It Time? May 22 2019 2 CommentsIsn't it time to stop lying? Isn't it time to Speak Your Truth? Even if speaking your truth means some relationships go adrift. Isn't it time you began living a life you are excited about? Read on to take the first step.
How much do you... May 15 2019
The world at large likes to think themselves advanced, open-minded and honoring others.
Be honest, when is the last time you judged another for the way they looked, their beliefs or the kind of house they live in or something equally benign?
I am now not judging you, just pointing out that many do this; at alllll sorts of levels. Me included.
Isn't it time all recognized the magic and endless possibilities that are out there? I think so. One of my favorite personal sayings is I know I know nothing. Now that might seem belittling, but it is not. It simply tells the universe that I AM open to more.

Thoughts and Musings
I realized a while ago when my husband became an idiot it was simply because I was tired. Did he do anything different from any other day? Nope. But like I said I was tired and the best thing for me at that moment was to go back to bed and rejuvenate; the last thing I needed to do was judge another; especially the man who has been by my side though thick and thin.
Apparently I'm not alone in experiencing this Idiot Syndrome; others have come forth and claim the same phenomena happening within them. Is it really a phenomena? Not really; however, doesn't it appear to be easier to blame another for their success, shortcomings, etc when we are feeling down? It may at the onset, but what kind of energy does one buy into by claiming this? Remember, energy attracts like energy. IF you are casting out those idiot vibes what kind of vibes are coming right back at you? I can pretty much guarantee it's not savory or sweet.
In a nutshell we're too tired and depleted and ignore our needs so it 'feels' better to put down another.
Let me rephrase that:
When we are tired, depleted, etc.
It's always easier to be jealous
Of another and gleefully point out their shortcomings
Downgrade their success by saying such things as
They slept their way to the top
Look at them; always showcasing their gifts
Who hasn't been envious of another's success? Who hasn't 'hated' (and I hope, sincerely hope it's not to the true level of hate) another because they dared to shine their light? Or was quick to judge another because they were not complying to our standards?
There is an old proverb:
"Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones"
This simply means that one should not criticize others, because everybody has faults of one kind or another. Remember, ALL humans are perfectly imperfect.
So instead of finding fault of another whether it is a true fault or they simply BElieve in something you don't, why not back off and listen? You just may learn a thing or too. This is not to say you must now own or embrrace their beliefs, but it certainly widens your horizon! Listen openly. Listen with not just your mind, but your heart. For example, y'all know I am trained in a variety of healing modalities. However, all these modalities combined add to the assistance of Western medicine. I'm experiencing this at this very moment. I have a frozen - albeit thawing - shoulder. The owner of the business concentrates on nutrition, supplements, physical therapy and chiropractic. He is fully aware of what I do for a living and flat out told me 'You take care of the spiritual, leave the physical to me.' I adore this man and the practice.
What's Next? Time to Fly!
Isn't it time you unfurled Your Freak Flag and let it wave proudly? If you persist in hiding, whining and ultimately judging, your tribe members will pass you by because your true essence hasn't come out to play.
Will you flag fly freely daily? Obviously that's the goal, but like all things in life, there are certainly days when one feels more confident than others. On those off days, it's best to observe, cocoon and learn. It's best to hibernate vs. joining some Whiny/Judgment Parade.
It's yet another act in the Art of Allowing. The Art of Honoring; honoring your energy levels and know what you are capable of accomplishing and BEing on any given moment and day. Remembering it is more than A-OK to take things a bit slower. It is more than A-OK to BE. It is more than A-OK to soar.
Please join me in committing to YOURSELF. Remembering your Whys. Honoring YOU.
What Angel will assist in this?
Archangel Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love, is my go to in this scenario for many reasons.
- She will remind you of your Whys.
- She will remind you in the most loving manner to BE quiet and not judge
- She will remind you that it is time to take a break and slow down
- She will remind you on those high powered days to soar ever higher
- She will remind you on those low energy days to withdraw, close your mouth and tend to YOU
- She will remind you to listen openly
Why do all or any of these acts? Quite simply when one tends to themselves first, they are constantly replenishing their sacred vessel and naturally BEcome not just tolerate of another's beliefs, but depending on the circumstances accepting.
I hope you read this post openly and perhaps re-read it and allow the various ideas and thoughts to seep deep within. Remember, you are loved for you. Not what you think you need to do, act, wear, etc in order to BE loved.

Are YOU Revolving or Evolving? May 08 2019
Revolve. Evolve. Funny two words that sound very similar, and yet so very different.
One keeps you going; like a gerbil wheel. You're making great time, but aren't moving forward one iota. In this scenario you Survive. You are treading water.
The other has you transforming and continually looking for more. More juice, more laughter, more life and of course more love. In this scenario you Thrive. You blossom and grow.
Which scenario do you live? Which scenario would you prefer?
It comes back to the story you tell yourself
We ALL have stories we've bought into at some point:
- 'Everyone' in my family has diabetes, so I know I'm going to get it
- Girls can't play sports ... with guys
- It's so hard to start your own business and succeed. Do you know how many fail every year? I'll play it safe and work for Da Man.
- I'm doing good work; I can't possible charge a lot; that's being greedy
Ummm... any of this sound familiar?
If they do, it's time to change your story. Diabetes? True you may be pre-disposed for this disease, but that does not mean you 'get it'... You have been warned that it is a possibility. You can alter your diet and exercise regime to hopefully keep it at bay.
The girl thing? Society is already seeing shifts that has girls playing sports.
If nobody ever started a business, the heart and light would go out in so many scenarios. Drudgery would become the norm. Creativity would flat out die. Businesses start because someone was passionate about a cause, their mission, and idea somewhere along the way. I'm proof of this.
Can't charge a lot? Pashaw. I admit I can be somewhat lazy. While I work hard and focused I rather hope it's not at the workaholic phase; I enjoy taking time out to BE. I'd rather have a strong core of amazing clients, students and customers who want to move forward and are looking for a push, a prod or a hug to get them there. I get my ideal tribe because that is how I have programmed my business. I actually had a student a while ago tell me I was getting greedy to my face! Oh my. I turned on a dime with her and shared that I have worked very hard to get where I am and the course was not something that was thrown together overnight. I respect myself and the time put into it all and charge accordingly (and for the record, I was told to charge A LOT more from other experts). Plus I am still personally involved throughout the entire eight month plus long course. PLUS isn't the universe vast? Isn't the universe unlimited? Therefore the time for surviving has long past.
It is time to THRIVE... each and every one of us.
No matter your passion, if you are called to spread your beautiful wings, DO IT!
GRATITUDE shifts more than you may know
When one is in the whining stage of an event. How beneficial is it to whine to themselves and any who will listen? This is not to say don't share a mishap in your life. However there is no need to keep repeating the story over and over and over again. For every time you share the story, it's 'truth' seeps in deeper and before you know it, you are the proud owner of a new story that is not serving you.
My dad says, 'That action is beneath you." Smart man he is.
Switch it to the essence of Gratitude. Sure you may be grateful for much in your life; a roof over your head, health, friends that check in on you and lights that go on off at the flick of a switch.
I am too.
When is the last time you gave thanks at a meal? I mean really gave thanks not just reciting or mumbling the rote pre-meal prayer that rolls off your tongue without a thought.
When is the last time you were grateful for the utensils that put that food in your mouth?
When is the last time you really enjoyed the meal vs. eating while you're watching your latest binge show?
It's that kind of gratitude I'm talking about Chatterers.
The kind of Gratitude that melts your heart, brings a smile to your face and who knows maybe a Happy Tear or two... The kind of Gratitude that fills your soul from the tips of your toes and through the crown of your head.
Yes, yet another Lesson in BEing.
Revolve or Evolve
Here we go again. Are you tired of hearing the same story from others and of course the ones you have running in your head or coming out of your mouth?
You always have the choice to change your story. You can change your story from one of going in circles to moving forward.
The choice is one only you can make to change.
How to start to change it?
Pay attention! Yes, BE. What do you prattle on about in your head? What is the story of why this or that hasn't happened? Initially just simply take note.
After you have noted a story that is playing on the repeat mode. Write it down. Look at those words; can you better understand why it is not working in your favor?
How can you change those words to better reflect where you wish go and how to BE? You have the power to change those words to better reflect the divine essence of you.
It's time to change the story from:
- Revolving to EVOLVING
- Surviving to THRIVING
- Failing to SUCCEEDING
- Emptiness to WHOLENESS
As I have often said, it is up to YOU to decide and commit to those blessed changes you desire to experience. Others can show you various ways, but YOU have to decide and take the first step.
What Angel do I Chat With to Evolve?
There are so many angels that one can chat with to better commit to themselves, but when I asked them whom, Shamael, Angel of Harmony stepped forward.
Why Shamael? For it did surprise me as well; this is what was shared:
By letting go of pre-conceived notions of how things are suppose to be, you slip into the energy of harmony.
When one is more harmonious with their essence, they are more inclined to go with the flow and not get caught up in the end result of any one event.
They BEcome proactive in nurturing their dreams into realty and simply keep moving forward one beautiful step at a time.
Once stepped into Harmony,
please work from the Ground up:
Ground your energy in the here and now
Know you ARE safe to BE you.
You CAN create all you desire by simply LIVING
You have great joy-filled power that also protects you as you walk your path.
Loving Self first is not selfish, but imperative thus allowing all paradigms within and beyond to heal; including your mindset
By tapping into your amazing intuition, you can see how you are designed to BE
Connecting with the 1,000 petal lotus brings a sense of peace that at this moment feels like a concept.
Re-Connecting with your higher self at the Soul Star will offer constant reminders of whom you are and WHY you are at this moment in time.
Honestly, Shamael has never been quite this chatty! LOVE this and will reference often myself. Hope you do too.

As the Divine Feminine energies continue to rise, some are beginning to wonder if the Divine Masculine is being obliterated.
This blog is coming from a very interesting dialogue we had going in our sacred space on Facebook. If you care to join us, click away! It started with a rather simple enough question which was if there are angels and archangels and they are obviously doing 'light work' why is there still evil, lower energies and demons?
The answer may be simple, but can go deep. The answer? Balance. As above, so below, light/dark, on/off, up/down, feminine/masculine and well you get the idea. As soon as I mentioned the feminine/masculine relationship, the dialogue turned on a dime and took off.
The Divine Feminine IS Rising...what does that mean?
The Divine Feminine, for the most part, has been ignored. She has been so neglected she has become tarnished. However, NOW she rises and honestly I don't believe that goddess will ever be put completely back in the bottle again.
When did the Divine Feminine start to rise? Who knows if there was a specific event or time. One can say it was when women got the vote. Some could say that it was when women started working outside the home in earnest (at a lower pay of course). Some could say it started when...
Does it really matter when it started? The fact is SHE is rising and rising gloriously to partner with the Divine Masculine. This is not a scenario where one is better than the other. Never has been, never will BE. I'm sure may beg to differ, but at the core it is about BALANCE.
BALANCE? Yep. Balance. This is how this blog post started to remind one of the nuances of balance. Things that exist in your day to day life; on/off, up/down, yin/yang, hot/cold, good/bad, etc. This balance is necessary for the very existence of life. One appreciates the warmth of a fire on a cold day; just as one appreciates a cold drink on a hot day.
Haven't you ever been on a see saw, either as child or in recent times? If one is bigger than the other, there is imbalance. If there is only one, the other sits idly and wonders when the fun will begin. Balance.
Balance and its Nuances
When one is more in balance, they are in the essence of BEing. For while they are in balance, they live from their center, the heart. So often yang energy is associated with fire, ego, aggression, receiving and more. The yin is associated with gentleness, intuitive, giving and more. If ALL are receiving (yang) who is doing the giving? If ALL are giving (yin) who is receiving?
This goes to the good vs. evil thoughts. While some pine for life filled with lollipops and unicorns, many would fail to offer gratitude for such a life because one often becomes complacent. Complacency is a funny critter. It lulls one into excepting that things are they way they should be no matter the situation. So many stay in a 'bad' relationship, job etc for 'The Devil you know is better than the devil you don't.' Fear of change. Fear of BEing courageous. Fear of BEing yourself, quirks and all. If one is complacent for too long, lethargy enters and one literally becomes exhausted.
Why do they become exhausted? Believe it or not, it takes work to be miserable aka complacent! It takes work to be anything but yourself! Were you born miserable? Of course not. Were you born angry? Of course not!
Life, of course, happens. There can be unsavory moments, events that can leave one whirling or wallowing. I'll not dispute that. However, if one wallows for too long, it can begin to feel better to stay there vs. BEing once more.
This is where the Divine Feminine comes in. Through the powerful yin energy this essence exudes, one CAN begin to honor who they are, their gifts and how to BE once again. Will this happen overnight? Of course not; one didn't hit the bottom of the well overnight now did they?
It is the Balance of the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine. With the union of both one values each aspect as presented for what it may be.
Sooo... how does this fair for the Divine Masculine if all this stuff is about I AM Woman hear me roar?
As stated above, it's exhausting to do it all a certain way or by one's self. It is about balance; a partnership in this case so both may lead and both may take moments to rejuvenate.
To bring in balance, things often, I hesitate to say must, implode. In order for calm to enter, chaos jumps in to break it up. During this upheaval, the phoenix rises from the ashes, joined.
It is the union, the sacred geometry symbol, the Vesica Piscis:
It is this union of all. Look closely at this image. The circles are intertwined. They are not separate. One is not larger than the other. One is not bolder than the other.
They are balanced.
Each one supports the other, while maintaining their independence, their quirks, their power, their essence. It is not about one over-powering another (that's been done for centuries and the times are changing). It's time to drop the mantles that have been put upon ALL; male must provide for family, female must tend hearth, male must be aggressive, female must be submissive.
It's time for balance.
What Angel do I call upon for this Balance to enter?
Initially I would have suggested Haniel, The Angel of Manifestation for his sigil is reminiscent of the vesica picis and it is the union of Heave and Earth:
However, after chatting with The Angelics, The Gang, Sandalphon and Metatron stepped forward. The Dynamic Duo as I call them. For together they represent balance. As Sandalphon is connected to the Earthstar Chakra and his twin to the Soulstar Chakra, they meld in your center - the heart.
As above, so below joining forces through Love.
Who am I to argue with that logic?

I am asked often, what candle I'm burning and why. Today ought to come as no surprise, Mary Magdalene. Why? Simply because for me, she represents a true phoenix rising from the ashes and emerging as the Divine Feminine. Want your own? Click away
Ask, ALLOW AND Receive April 24 2019
Many of you reading this have at least heard of the Law of Attraction. If you haven't, not to fear. The Law of Attraction simply states that one attracts energetically what one is releasing into the Universe.
Gratitude creates more for which to BE grateful.
Love creates more for which to LOVE.
Fear? Creates more doubt and alas fear. (not capitalizing this word intentionally to keep its vibration lower)
Worthiness creates a vaster funnel that is directed towards you.
And so on.
Let's Address Worthiness
So many, in fact I'd hazard a guess that the overwhelming majority of the world's universe, have an internal unknown gauge of what they feel worthy in receiving.
Every single one of us.
Why is the meter lower than what we actually deserve? This is a great question and one that warrants an answer and honestly could fill a book. There are many factors that come into play in this Meter Game:
- Can't take time out for myself - have other obligations
- Can't take time from somebody else to allow help towards me; somebody must need this help more, aka more worthy. (Angels hang their heads in this one and shake it with eyes rolling)
- What if I really don't deserve it? I might as well keep the bar lower so as not to disappoint myself
- And so on...
Any of these ring a bell for you?
Allow me to share a story:
A few years back I was vending at a show and it was set up day. My husband wasn't able to assist for this one (a true rarity) and my goddess helpers were gleefully occupied elsewhere for the day. I had six plus hours to set up; therefore, I was in no hurry and was rather enjoying the process.
A young man, a volunteer, offered to help. I of course not really needing it, I declined.
"You are a strong and powerful woman. You can do anything.
Will you allow me to help you?"
Of course I ultimately did. Lesson learned and I joked about it the entire weekend that I allowed this help to not only occur, but BE received via an open heart.
Will you Allow?
Good Girls are often told that they cannot put themselves first. Pashaw. If you don't, at least periodically, how will you ever get to where you desire to go and BE? If you are consistently allowing others to cut in front of you in lines (metaphorical as well as literal) how can you ever 'cash in'?
Of course you will be forever in line, waiting and waiting annnnd waaiiting...
How to Raise Your Worthiness Vibration?
It's rather easy to raise your vibration. In a nutshell, step into GRATITUDE. With a Big Ol' Capital G.
Many of us have had hardships or mishaps or things not going according to plan in our lives. For example, we lived in our beach home for close to five years. While this was a choice, we had much ... in storage. As time went on, we missed certain articles and actually began to pine for them.
Fast forward, we moved to the New Digs. As the boxes were unloaded from the moving van, I found myself giddily excited to see HER again. You see, we have a 4foot tall statue of Kwan Yin that I missed beyond words. When she emerged, I cried, yes, literally cried for joy at her re-emergence. As she was wheeled into the backyard the joy that overtook me was palpable. Her place is sacred and every time I see her wave at me from the kitchen, I smile.
This is the kind of joy I'm talking about! Joy at a flower blooming. Just this week I was once again giddy to see the peony bush in bloom! There was one particular bloom that caught my eye; it was literally blooming just off the ground vs being high on a branch. What a perfect message for each one of us; Bloom From The Ground UP! Build up the Joy from the ground. This creates a base that BEcomes so expansive you find joy in the simplest of things:
- Clean Clothes
- A warm bed in which to snuggle
- Vibrant food - no matter from where it hales
- A sunny day
- A rainy day
This list is virtually endless for every life is filled with opportunities to embrace JOY and lets it permeate deeply within your psyche. Too often complacency can settle; the blessed TV is on for hours, excuses to not go for a walk because there is too much to do, chores to be attended, and so on. Choose JOY and I can guarantee your Worthiness Meter will rise and rise quickly.
Here's a tip, when you take out that time to meditate, put you first in various situations, you have ample time for all that needs to be done.
All it Takes is YOU saying YES
Sure, Sure, Sure... this is much easier said than done, this whole saying YES to self.
I get it.
However, IF you don't start now by saying YES to you, nobody else can for you.
Doesn't matter how much they offer you, lead you, introduce you and more. If you don't say YES to you, you will miss most, if not all of those blessed opportunities coming your way because you allowed someone else to cut in line in front of you.
Like how I wrapped those up together?
Now is the time, more than ever to say YES...
Your gratitude rises. It rises so much that even if you have an off day, you don't sink. It rises so even if you have an off day, it is better than a good day from years past. It rises so even you can spot an opportunity a mile away as it floats your way; no more chasing opportunities. They chase you.
Isn't it time?
What Angel Raises Your Joy Vibration?
Jophiel. She is not called the Joy-Filled Angel for nothing!
I have her candle burning brightly near me at this exact moment and her JOY is real. Her JOY is powerful. Her JOY is reminds one to live in the moment.
When you are this deliriously happy, you don't even give fear or anxiety a second glance. When you are this happy, you know ALL. IS. POSSIBLE. Why? BEcause now, more than ever you BElieve in yourself. You BElieve in your mission. You BElieve you are worthy to live that mission exactly as your heart desires.
It's that easy. It's that powerful and BElongs to you.
Will you allow?
For now, meditate with her energy via her sacred mandala:
Like many, my heart sank when I heard of the news of Notre Dame ablaze. Her Lady (for that is Notre Dame means) was burning! We had been blessed to visit Paris years ago and yes attended mass in this very sacred place.
Like many, for my students and I have been going back and forth, we felt a sense of calm almost a detachment from the fires. Now this may sound cold and harsh, but it's not. For what is a building but a vessel. What is a vessel? A container to hold, preserve something.
I chatted with The Magdalene quite a bit on that day and I will share as much as I can what was told to me, but first, let's set the stage a bit.
Notre Dame Cathedral
Notre Dame Cathedral, like many sacred sites was not a new location to hold sacred ceremonies. In fact, Chris H. Hardy shares in her blog (yes I had to hunt and dig to find some sort of proof based on my intuitive findings) that indeed Notre Dame Cathedral was previously the Gaul Pillar of the Nautes - a Temple to the Goddess Diana. For those unfamiliar with Diana, she is the Goddess of Animals and The Hunt and is often overlapped energetically with Goddess Artemis. Artemis is also the Goddess of The Hunt and wild/domesticated animals. She is also the daughter of Zeus who is King of the Gods.
What is special about this particular location? I know, but have yet to find written proof that this location is a Nexus Point; a location or intersection if you will, of energies. I deep in my heart believe it the nexus point of at least two ley lines that bring forth the energies of the Divine Feminine.
Think about it, if Notre Dame was previously the Gaul Pillar of the Nautes, both are dedicated to women; Diana/Artemis and Our Lady. Our Lady? Yes, that is literally what Notre Dame is translated to mean. Many believe that Our Lady is to mean Mother Mary. However, I believe, as do many others it is Mary Magdalene.
Mary Magadalene's connection to Notre Dame
Hear me out in this theory in which I am not alone.
If you feel connected to Mary Magdalene, you are in great company. Magdala may mean from Magdala as the location, but Magdala also means Tower. As you begin to BEcome more observant in icongraphy, you will BEgin to notice more and more towers as they connect to Mary Magdalene.
What graces the front of Notre Dame? True many things, but one is often drawn to the TWO towers atop the cathedral. TWO. Why two? Many feel/know that she was indeed married to Yeshua. The Divine Union. What is a couple but a union of TWO. Balanced in energy. Strong and empowered and equal.
Together they form the union that creates the base below them. All else is dwarfed by their presence.
Another nod to The Magdalene, as there are many within is a statue of a woman just in the entrance in the tympanum.
This woman holds a banner and an urn, is crowned and stands tall, empowered as she looks upon you. How does one know this could be The Magdalene? Look over her. There are yet four more towers. This is a woman of power and means for she wears a money pouch. Mary Magdalene, those paintings known to BE her often include such things as urns, towers and money. Why the urn? it holds sacred oils used only for ceremonial work.
There is movement within the statue for she is not simply standing, but her right foot placement indicates movement forward. In other words, this is woman on the move and is quite comfortable in her power.
Truly a representation of the Divine Feminine.
Do I have your attention now?
It may be years before anyone is allowed back into the Cathedral, if ever in our lifetime, but do your own research. Once you jump in that rabbit hole it is hard to deny the presence of The Magdalene within Notre Dame Cathedral.
Healing and Moving Forward after the Fires
Honestly I could not watch the fires consume the building. I saw more than enough via social media. However it did force me to go within and meditate and I promise I'll share a bit of what she told me in a few. However, look at the image below as shared via social media:
Most quickly see an image of a person. If you can't, soften your eyes a bit. Many jump to say it is Jesus/Yeshua. I'll put it out there; Is it Him or is it Her?
Notre Dame will rebuild. Many have already come forward to donate massive amounts of money to get it started.
Mary Magdalene's Message
As I went into meditation and began to ask her the whys, she was quick to jump in with the following:
As with all things, one gets accustomed to what is before them and no longer see the true message or significance of an event. Think about your day, do you no longer see the clutter on your kitchen counter? Do you no longer stop and see the beauty of what is before in nature? Do you no longer see what is what is literally right in front of you?
The same goes with my cathedral.
The Divine Feminine is rising. It has been rising for decades, but now more than ever more need to see and hear The Truth. Why does it need to rise? Balance. This is not a situation where women overpower men. Rather it is a union built upon equality. We are the living representation of the sacred union displayed in the Vesica Piscis. Each maintaining its own individuality, but creating strength through Love in their union.
Regarding the fires of Notre Dame; many sacred objects were saved from the fire for future energy work via viewing. The energy that is conveyed through all sacred artifacts is the energy of Love. Those held in Notre Dame are no exception.
That is what I represent.
For Love has no boundaries.
Love has no conditions.
Love is ALL.
As this cathedral was built upon Love; the true union of both, it shall be rebuilt and endure. As the truth begins to emerge about me and my beloved, the artifacts saved will take on a new meaning for the truth shall emerge to BE seen and heard by the masses.
We, as you, are the Phoenix Rising from the Ashes to shine more brightly and empower more people through nothing more than Love.
I do believe she has called us to arms! Arms open wide for hugging, empowering and of course LOVING. She has shared with me many times that the energy of LOVE is empowering. LOVE starts within by acknowledging and loving one's self first and foremost. By honoring one's gifts and by not belittling self or others. It is an understanding that there are many viewpoints and roads that lead to Love, but once arrived all speak the same language.
One learns to BE. One learns to listen vs. hearing. Listening with not just an open mind, but more importantly an open heart. Accepting where another is within their journey and honoring it and never rushing them to another point. Holding space if necessary to allow them to regroup and take timid steps forward. Encouraging them to do so, but never challenging them to do so. Never telling them to get over it and move along. All emotions have validity and the sooner they are honored, the sooner one can move forward with greater confidence.
Perseverance and endurance are required for this Love Journey. Standing tall with a smile on your face, tears in your eyes for you are filled with great joy and of course Love that infects others to acquire the same feeling and BEing.
As I write this, Her candle is burning brighter. The energy of the room is quite full and I am at peace. As I do not have a mandala for her, yet, I offer Chamuel The Angel of Self Love to help you hold space for YOU in LOVE.
Good Girls Can Be Tenacious, but first... April 03 2019
As you know, I'm a self appointed Good Girl. While it is a badge worth wearing, it's not worth owning.
BEcause it can hold one back. If a goddess totally embraces her Good Girl persona, well then, she must always BE good. No more rebel, system buster, leader and more. For Good Girls over the decades, by society standards, are submissive and afraid, yes I said afraid, of shining their gorgeousness whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual gorgeousness.
Let's stop this, shall we?
Why Stop BEing Just A Good Girl?
You are multi-faceted, yes? Can you not walk and chew gum at the same time? Of course of you can. Of course you can!
Singer and songwriter, Peggy Lee said it best in her song:
I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then
Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
The Many Faces of Good Girls
Look around you. If you are sitting by yourself at the moment, google Goddess Faces. Every single one of those goddesses is different from the other. From skin color, to size, to hair, to age and well you get the idea. Each one is not only physically gorgeous, but exudes self confidence and quiet power that draws you in.
Each one of them tells a brilliant story; herstory. Each one of them is tenacious - having a quality of determination and never giving up or letting go.
Why? For she recognized her innate wisdom and needed to share it with others. Some via large platforms as public speaking, books and more. Some on a quieter more inner circle platform; for those with eyes to see and BE encouraged to BE their authentic self. Both have great value for each creates a ripple for others to give witness to and empower themselves to come out and play.
Each ripple creates more ripples. Before you know it, you ARE affecting so many more than you personally come in contact with. Therefore, what is the image you are putting forth?
Empowerment or Belittlement?
Things to ponder.
What Are Your Many Faces?
Now, I'm not talking about make-up vs. make-up less face. I'm talking about your face.
When you look at another, you can often get an immediate glimpse of their psyche at that particular moment. For example, I saw a practitioner yesterday and today. She is gleefully working on my shoulder.
Her first comment today was you look so different; calm more at peace.
While I had on my first time to meet you face on yesterday, the pain I was in was evident (it's a shoulder thing). Through her gifts she is helping muscles to relax; much less pain and therefore my face and body movements display that.
Look at yourself in the mirror. This is not a critique of what hairs are turning gray or wrinkles emerging or bags blossoming.
Instead it is a look into your soul. Is that soul happy? If it is, KUDOS to you!
If it is not, what could you do to lessen that load. What could you do to brighten your day? What could you do that says YES to you?
More things to ponder.
Look it, we've all had crap happen in our lives; death, dissolutions, arguments, illness (to self or loved one) and more.
On the flip side, we've all had glorious things happen in our lives; children, marriage, recognition for our innate gifts, sunny days, vacations, flowers, lollipops and unicorns (just making sure you are still reading ;) ).
It's what we focus on or allow to take over that can de-rail what we wish to do.
It's time to take a more in depth look into our psyche and remember our individaul WHYS.
- Why do I wish to this or that?
- Why do I wish this or that to happen?
- Why do I desire better health?
- Why do I desire more money and less bills?
- Why do I wish a partner to share my life?
Why bother doing all thinking thought provoking deep work? Because then you have answers. Then you gain greater clarity of what truly motivates you. Once you have answered the WHYS - it's important to keep asking in one arena until you hit a nerve that makes you think harder and more profoundly - you gain clarity. You gain and remember your tenacity. You move forward with great grace for now you have a mission and it is going to be much harder to derail you from this point forward.
What Angel to Call Upon for This Mission?
Uriel, Angel of Safety, once again comes forward.
Because he, like no other will help you to feel safe to BE you. The real you. The authentic you. The glorious you.
Focus on his energy coming forth in his mandala below. You are welcomed to meditate on its energy to help unleash what you have been hiding.
It's time for you to come out and play now.
Good Girls Can BE.... A Rebel and Proud of It! March 27 2019
As the eldest and only child for seven years and the 'girl'... I adopted and embraced the essence of Good Girl for decades.
You know, the girl who says yes because she has too out of obligation. The good girl who doesn't dare raise her freak flag for the fear of being well freakish. The good girl who rarely rocks the boat because life is better when calm.
Does this ring a bell for you and your life?
Shifting the Paradigm of BEing a Good Girl
This energy has been building for years and in various small pockets around the globe it has emerged and blossoming to never turn back.
This hit a nerve while traveling through France last summer. I had the great fortune to connect with many, many amazing people and one in particular whom I shall call Susan. Susan is a grandma and at first glance very proper, unassuming and rather conservative. OH NO... looks deceive! The more I chatted with Susan the more I realized it was her safety persona. This woman is a flat out rebel!
Stories abounded as she shared snippets of her life. Someone dared to give her the moniker of Bad Nana. This really rubbed me the wrong way for what was she doing that was bad?
She was breaking molds of what a proper grandma ought to act like. She was breaking molds and bending rules since a young lass at private school. She was a rebel. That is the name I proudly gave her... Rebel Nana. She questioned it at first, but when I explained that she was actually a role model and to not allow title, age, etc to define one's self. She LOVED it... or so I am led to believe.
This one goddess taught much... so much simply by BEing. BEing glorious, sassy rebellious and I LOVED it. Why? She is BEing genuine to her.
Isn't that what so many desire?
A Good Girl has been
For centuries it has been expected and doled out that men and women can do certain things and to stay put in those lanes and how dare you skip to another lane.
Those defined good girls followed their dictated path and some quite passive about it. Others? Dare to bend if not break molds by BEcoming trailblazers in fields across the the spectrum. Fields from aviation, medicine, space, and so much more.
Women gathered and won the right to vote in the United States. Women continue to gather and collaborate to create. Create change, create true equality - lip service is no longer an option. Good Girls are doing this and so much more.
What about Life as a Good Girl?
BEing a good girl no longer means one has to bend and succumb to what is expected of them. Does this mean one comes out with guns blazing? Of course not - not in the metaphorical or literal sense. It does mean one first must realize what their chosen whys are.
- Why do I desire this or that?
- Why do I wish to live here or there?
- Why do I prefer...?
When one begins to dig deep and no longer deny who they are by definition of their gifts is a BIG step in itself. Just today another goddess reached out because she has been approached since a child as one folks feel safe to share their story. Why? She is a natural healer, highly empathic and more. However, she has been in denial for decades which so saddens me. However she now recognizes some of her whys and can no longer hide. Thus we begin working together to help her remember her beautiful essence so she then helps many others.
What are your whys? If you are not sure of even one, it's time we chat to unleash a few to start and grow from there. Why? BEcause it is just one of the many things I LOVE doing; helping others to shine their essence.
Good Girls and Angels
There is so much to chat about in this one arena alone that I've actually had a somewhat difficult time isolating just a few examples to help get you juiced up about YOU.
What angel did I go to first? Uriel hands down. Why? Uriel is the Angel of Safety. He is the consummate winged reminder that YOU are Safe to BE YOU. It is no longer acceptable to pretend to BE someone you are not. It is no longer acceptable to hide in hopes it might go away. It is no longer acceptable to dull your gorgeous, beautiful light.
Why? BEcause your light is so needed at this moment at this time - yes like right now.
Isn't it time you embraced your inner Rebel?
The Supermoon Equinox of March, 2019 March 19 2019 1 Comment
Are we in for a treat on March 20, 2019!
Yes, we have yet another full moon.
Yes, we have yet another SuperMoon
BUT wait there's more - it all happens on the Spring Equinox!
March SuperMoon News
As many of you know, astrology makes my hair hurt, but it plays in mightily for this scenario.
But let's back a bit. What is a SuperMoon? Is the moon really closer to Earth? What makes it 'super'? Of course there is much more to it than this, but that's the basic definition of a supermoon.
A Supermoon is indeed when the moon is closer to earth in its elliptical orbit. This, on full moon (as it also happens during a new moon) can make it appear quite large in our sky offering great accolades of oohhhhs and ahhhs.
The last lunar fact as it affects you, for now, is that this is the last supermoon of 2019. The next series of supermoons will not occur until fall of 2020. I've mentioned this before, we are indeed in a super charged time (pun soooo intended) and it will, and is, affecting all more than one may care to admit in not only our personal, but global lives.
As this supermoon coincides with the spring equinox; it is indeed time to plant your seeds, nurture them and watch them blossom. For what does spring eternally represent?
Buckle Your Seatbelts and Hold On!
I find it fascinating that this moon is in Libra; the scale - alllll about balance. For just today, the Channeled Angel Message was indeed Centered - what is centered, but balance?
Emotions, old ways of being that require sloughing off are amping up and can cause outbursts that are slightly unsavory.
Remember to stay as centered as possible. Stay in the essence of Love.
This is prime time to remember your Whys. If you are unsure of what this means for you, there are a multitude of ways to discover your Whys:
- Have a Session with a trusted coach who can hold space for you as you dig deep (I know of someone spectacular ;) )
- Pretend you are three years old. For it is around that time it appears that the only word the child knows at that time is WHY. Keep asking yourself:
- Why do I desire that/this? BE honest. If your answer is from the heart, it is the absolutely correct one for you and that is all that matters.
- Why do I wish to BE this/that?
- WHY do I....?
And So on. When one discovers their why, embraces their why and owns their why, all BEgins to fall into place much faster, easier and with greater LOVE as the motivator vs. obligation being the motivator.
This is What this SuperMoon is offering
While this last supermoon of 2019 is packing a punch energetically, it is a gift above all gifts in so many ways.
We are able to recognize the 'stuff' that is holding us back, hindering and more so we may now release it and BE. While this shift may make one feel a tad wobbly, it is designed to do just that; especially if you are still on the fence of what's next? As we wobble, we remember our center.
This supermoon is a push. A push out of your comfort zone. A push to reclaim your essence. A push to remember what gets you excited and offers tidbits of how to get there.
This supermoon, in Libra, is about balance. Finding your center. it offers a big ol' opportunity to BE. Think about it. What better way to reach for the stars, grab a hold, and bring it into your reality when you are grounded?
To further deepen that think about it - how can you manifest something, anything, if it is always a dream? How can you live your life of desires if you spend glorious amounts of time envisioning it, but not being proactive in creating it?
Hmmm? Things to think about, eh?
This is what this supermoon can offer you.
What to do in this Supermoon...
There are the 'classics' and some not so 'classic':
- Clear and charge your crystals this can help set the stage for you and how they serve you for the remainder of the year.
- If you haven't yet, NOW is the time to write down what it is that you desire. Write like your life depended on it - for in many ways it does.
- Spend time in Luna's energy Wednesday/Thursday to bask in the energy.
- Gather a group of like minded folks to join in, or spend blessed time alone
- Give yourself permission to receive. Dream BIG, receive BIG.
- Chat with Auriel, the Lunar Angel. She will help to illuminate the correct path for you; offer insights to the right teachers, coaches, connections that will gladly support you and cheer you on as you say YES.
- Say YES and mean it. Say YES to you and mean it. Say YES to life and mean it.
The response from last week's post was lovely. So many of you reached out privately and asked if I had been in your head and following you around....
Your response prompted a follow up of more simple tricks you could do to help alleviate the weight you've been carrying around.
How did you get this way you may find yourself questioning. How on earth did I allow all this stuff to be piled on top of me? It's so much, I'm not sure if I can bear it all any more; I feel like I'm suffocating.
Relax. For you are far from alone. So many feel this way. Remember when I addressed multi tasking in the last blog post. This falls into this arena. When you are doing too much, you are doing too much!
Address one task at a time. Here's a typical type day for me:
- Feed the Lions (aka cats)
- Make the daily cappucinno
- Dailies - you know the daily channeled messages
- Chat with group members and students
- Gym/Walk in the woods - or both
- Submit lecture proposals to destinations
- Grade Student homework
- New Project - oracle deck
- Book Proposal
- Clean house - maybe
- Radio/TV/Podcast gigs
- Detox Bath
- Blah, blah blah
I'm no different than you; much on the plate. If one looks at their To Do List in one glance it is overwhelming! However, I LOVE making the list and then crossing off as each project is complete. It's the OCD in me, but then once I see how much has been completed, I am much easier on myself when it's time to relax or my soul says stop and it's time to rest.
However I do address a good deal of this on a daily basis. How? By addressing one item at a time with complete focus. Trust me, there are times I do circuits around our home. There are days I feel like it's pure dribble coming out of my mouth and on some days it is. However, each task at hand is given my full attention; therefore more is done in a day than if I truly bounced around from task to task without a thought.
I have found my escapes. Those things I can do that allows my mind to wander; painting walls (it's legendary in our family how much I do paint), gardening, walking the sacred woods near our home. Even with each one of these tasks I focus, allow and BE.
Give it a whirl. What are your favorite meandering things to do? These in many ways are Acts of Self Love - thanks to Chamuel for the reminder that we all need to do them on a daily basis.
What else can I do to lift the weight off my shoulders?
There are so many kinds of yoga out there; Hot, Power, Gentle, Swaroopa, Hatha, Kundalini, Vinyasa... well you get the idea. Each one offers a way to BE. Discover which one speaks to you.
However, if going to a yoga studio or class feels somewhat intimidating, not a problem. In the comfort of your home, in your jammies, you can still do a few simple poses:
Child's Pose - This pose gently relaxes muscles on the front of your body while reducing stress and fatigue.
Supported Corpse Pose - You lay on your back with a bolster underneath your upper back. This relaxes the tension in the front of your body (heart) as your shoulders softly drop to the ground. It's more beneficial if your palms face upwards (helps to open your heart and shoulders more)
Legs Up The Wall - Truly that is what the pose is called! You lay on your back as close as you can with your butt touching the wall. Relax your legs on the wall, hands facing upwards. This pose is known to aid in digestion, relax the body to allow a more restorative sleep and much more.
With each of these poses, as any yoga poses, the key is to relax and breathe. Hold each pose, while breathing, for a minimum of 20 seconds. Your body is tense and it's going to take more than a moment to relax it. As you continue to relax and breathe, your body often twitches to the next level of relaxation. As the saying goes, go with the flow and breathe.
Meditation Eases the Mind
Certainly quieting the mind is often prescribed, but seems unobtainable.
If you are new to meditation, may I suggest a few things:
- Call on Archangel Michael first - He helps to protect you in every way possible including the spiritual side. By having him in your corner you can better relax and enjoy meditation.
- Begin with guided meditation. There are countless phone apps and youtube videos. The best ones are suggestive. They will not be specific in what you are to see or feel. Why? Everyone is different and therefore will respond differently to suggestions.
- Yes, yes yes, I AM working on those blessed guided meditations - 15 in all and two beautiful goddesses have just stepped forward to help me edit them. Hopefully they shall be released soon.
Why is meditation suggested? Oh for soooo many reasons! It doesn't take long, but of course one can meditate for hours if desired. But even a quick five minute meditation can expand your horizons, ease your mind and yes, lift the weight off your shoulders.
Give it a try.
Eat properly for YOU
This is a common tactic of mine to get you back on track.
In fact, via social media I recently saw a meme... Why do we eat cookies, cakes, ice cream when stressed? Because desserts is stressed spelled backwards!
While there is great truth in that, we all know all that sugar stuff is mind, body and soul numbing. Don't get me wrong, it tastes great going down, but the aftermath? Not so much. It actually creates more stress, so you crave more and the cycle continues.
Me? I prefer vegetarian, but know me well enough that my body needs beef periodically. It's an iron thing. When do I need this? Typically when tired for extended periods which of course leads to stress. When I am in my optimum mode, I dig for fruit in the bowl on the kitchen table, stay away from breads and pasta and my favorite; pizza. Yes it is very yummy, but not so much the next day.
It's a simple question to ask yourself:
Will this food fuel or dull me?
You will get an immediate answer. It is up to you to decide from there; free will and all.
Thanks to my eldest I am more determined to be thin and strong this year. Therefore I am becoming more conscious (as I had slipped) of what is going in my mouth and am working with a personal trainer. Both are helping tremendously with easing the weight off my shoulders. Why? I'm taking back the control of my life in all various kinds of ways.
Why do these suggestions help in releasing the weight off my shoulders?
Simply because you are taking care of you. You are saying YES to you.
You are realizing and honoring more your worth and embracing you.
If you acknowledge you, the universe follows suit.
People will come in your life to support you in various arenas.
People will tell you how much you mean to them.
You realize it is not a competition, but a life to BE shared.
Ahhhhh... feel that weight lifting now?
Need more help in the ahem, weight lifting? Pop me a note, it may be time for a three-month mentorship program so we can dig deep together and soar even higher than possibly imagined.

What Happens When You Feel the Weight of the World Upon You February 28 2019 1 Comment
Haven't you ever felt that there was so much going on and you didn't know which way to turn?
You may not know which way to turn, but kept going.
All the while the weight of the world continued to weigh heavily upon you; from personal shoulds to global goings on.
What Does This Weight of the World Upon You Feel Like?
Symptoms are listlessness, extreme tiredness and yet can't sleep or have trouble sleeping.
Symptoms such as tenseness in the neck and shoulders begin. They begin and slowly ever so slowly take hold and don't let go. This of course leaves you with a tight neck and shoulders. These symptoms can quickly prompt massage appointments, yoga classes and more.
However, the symptoms range and certainly can vary according to the situation and your empathic gifts. This weight can start softly and yet become insidious.
This weight on your shoulders leaves you tired at the best of circumstances.
This weight on your shoulders can be life threatening at the worse of circumstances.
This weight on your shoulders leaves you second guessing decisions. Decisions if your path is the right one. Decisions if your diet is proper - such a slippery topic that can leave you in a state of flux and digging deep in those blessed boxes of Thin Mints that have begun arriving like the sugar locusts that they are.
Bottom line it feels like you are going round and round on a gerbil wheel with no jumping off point.
What Causes This Weight of the World to Take Hold?
So many things can cause this phenomena. Some include things such as:
- Being a Yes person - aka Good Girl
- Multi-tasking. Yes that very thing so many pride themselves on. I'd stop bragging on that one if I were you.
- Seeing the Big Picture, but not able to digest it and break it down into little pieces.
- Being empathic. This is not curse people, but a true gift. But being empathic does require copious amounts of self care to dis-engage. If you are reading this and it resonates, your Acts of Self Love need to increase stat.
Let's break each of these down a bit.
Being a yes person (so does not warrant a BEing scenario). As the eldest in our family and a girl (just in case you haven't noticed) and the only child for several years, I do what I do - take care of things and people. I get it. It's why I often tell clients to BEgin anew and really rate what needs to be done vs. should be done. When one says YES with conviction, the weight lifts. When one says yes out of obligation, the weight gets heavier. Begin now and evaluate each event you must do. Do you really need to do this?
It's a really a simple yes or no scenario. Listen to your heart and you will know without a shadow of a doubt what is your next viable step(s).
This is not something to pride one's self on. Really. Sure, you can do squats as you are brushing your teeth, but why not give thanks for those pearly whites as you brush instead? Focus on the essence of gratitude for how amazing your teeth are and how they assist you in your daily life. Can you imagine not having teeth? Of course not, so don't take them for granted. This suggestion really doesn't fall under the auspices of multi-tasking.
Multi-tasking is chatting with someone on the phone and doing something else. We've all done it, don't say you haven't. However, when you do something as a simple multi-task such as this, the subtle nuances of your conversation will go awry and you'll never know what you missed. By BEing more present in every 'task' you do, all is done with greater efficiency and through that you fortify your essence by not stretching yourself so thin energetically. Think of a conversation you've ever had either in person or on the phone; can't you tell when that person is not paying attention? You deserve it as do they.
Remember, focus on one thing at a time.
The Big Picture
Everyone has dreams, goals and more. Everyone has seen or experienced personally injustices. Those can be overwhelming and weigh heavily on your shoulders. This is ideal time to take a deep breath.
Does it change anything? Yes and no. While it may not change the situation, it can change your perspective of it and what you could do to alter it.
As an example, my sister lives near the Potomac River where trash is constantly bottle necking everything. It disgusted her. She brought trash bags and picked up what she could. In the span of less than three months, trash picking is now an organized monthly event with over 50 people helping out.
One small step is all it takes in the direction you desire to go to change more than you can imagine. Just take that first step; say YES to you.
This really is not a curse, but rather a beautiful gift. As much as you may wish to disregard your gift or hopes that it will go away, it won't. No amount of rotten lifestyle choices will exacerbate it. Therefore, embrace this gift.
Everyone's gift is truly different, so it is best to learn how you react to events; personal, regional, national and of course universal. As an example, you may feel antsy prior to a thunderstorm. You may feel another's pain who is many miles from you. You may.... Learn how it feels for you. Then going forward you are better able to know what is possibly headed your way and how to better deal with it for you recognize your signs.
This is where Acts of Self Love are paramount. The more you rebuild your energetic reserves, the better fortified you are to handle all that comes your way. Chat with Archangel Chamuel for your suggestions.
Take a deep breath; know that this too shall pass - sooner than later.
When you aren't sure where this weight is coming from
Write. Write like nobody's business. Consider this your Purging of all that is bothering you. Then set it on fire.
Seriously, burn it up.
I did just this earlier this week. I'm ready to BE more me than ever.
I wrote and I wrote and I wrote.
I thanked those that had come before me and stood alone on the platform that opened doors for perhaps millions. I thanked them for their love and work and knew it was time for them to rest as best as they could rest and enjoy life.
For now it is the time for many to share that platform while they are BEing so others may ignite their personal light and shine for others.
Will you join me in lighting your light so others may feel encouraged to do so as well?
For once your light is burning, the weight begins to lift for you are learning to BE.
Ready, Set, RESET February 19 2019
It's here, The Super Snow Moon of 2019!
Yes, while it was officially on February 18, 2019, the energies continue to be prime for you to say YES... to you.
I know, I know, I'm sounding like a broken record, but until who are in my universe say YES to themselves, you will continue to see and hear this question from me. Why is this so important to me? Because it is one of the things I live for; inspiring another to BE. BE themselves because they have said YES and meant every single letter of that blessed three little word.
What does the Super Snow Moon Represent?
This specific full moon continues to build on the energies that began in the last quarter of 2018. This moon is the fourth consecutive full moon to be at zero degrees. What does this mean for you? Resetting. We are at Ground Zero in a manner of speaking, rising from the ashes to blossom and shine like never before.
This super glorious moon builds on the New Moon that coincided with the Chinese New Year... talk about resetting! Resetting in The Breakthrough Year! Are you BEginning to see a theme?
It is the perfect time to howl out your desires and reset.
What requires resetting in your life? Only you can truthfully answer that question. However, let's address the major categories to get you to BEgin anew... why? Because what you do or don't do now sets the stage for your future; immediate and long term.
Relationships that require resetting
There are many kinds of relationships; romantic, social, business, family. However, have you thought that you have a relationship with money, food, and health? It's all about relationships. What does each relationship offer to you? Yes you. If you are eating a bowl of mashed potatoes, what does it offer you? Sure it's yummy fluffiness with melted butter and more, but how does it support you and your soul? It may feel great going down, but certainly in the long run; mashed potatoes, I am sorry to say, offer no fuel.
Why now? All energy is super-charged at this exact moment. ALL. In our Facebook Group, many are undergoing major life changes and it certainly runs the gamut; jobs, deaths, illness (of self and/or loved ones), near death experiences and more. Want some ongoing support? Join us! You'll be welcomed with open wings, but one must ask to join.
In order to release, one must detach. Detach from the drama and the energy that 'it' holds. This includes stuff. You know, the stuff that is in your sacred space; papers, clothes, decor, books, etc. Just this past weekend my husband and I cleared our closet. I didn't think there would be much coming from my side since I regularly clear out; I was there more as support for him. Little did I know what I was still holding onto! We ultimately had FIVE BAGS of clothing that immediately was donated; two of which held my stuff.
It's the detachment knowing one will never wear that outfit again and it's time to pass it on for another to enjoy. It's the detachment of the releasing that is the empowering act. Why now is there an urgency now?
You are planting seeds for your future. Seeds must have space to germinate, take root and grow.
Super Snow Moon and Your Future
As you release each article, relationship, thought process, I highly recommend you give it thanks for supporting you no matter how short it was in your life. Why bother? Let me tell you a story. We were at a consignment store years ago. They had not one, but two pairs of Lucchese boots for sale; both in our size. We really didn't need them nor had any plans of ever wearing them, but they signified prosperity for at full retail they go easily over $500 a pair. Purchase we did. Gather dust they did. They are now released from us so someone who can adore and wear them will do so with pride. By releasing them, we gave back and gave to ourselves to allow the kind of prosperous articles to enter our life that we love.
Just today I went to the salon and well did salon things. My stylist is an amazing goddess, full of goodness, great ideas and more. She had allowed a fellow worker to tend to her hair with great dissatisfaction; her hair was now fried. This goddess is ready, oh so ready to step into her power and own her very own salon. She was quickly talked into getting her hair cut to better reflect her true essence, not what another thought would 'look good on her'.
The power of releasing is based on making room for what is better suited to enter, but ultimately is a more true representation of whom you are.
Reset and Soar with the Angels
As you are now perhaps giddy to release stuff and more, which direction shall you go? How will you continue to say YES to you? It's time to chat, with the angels of course.
Start with Archangel Auriel, The Lunar Angel. Light up her candle and embrace the brilliance and energy of this moon. Invoke the energies of this moon into your BEing to help you say YES and BEcome proactive every single day on living the life you desire.
Archangel Auriel's Mandala
Still not sure where to start with this whole releasing and resetting game? Chat with Archangel Zadkiel, the Angel of Transmutation. He can and will not only clear your space energetically, better than any sage, but will gladly illuminate for you what needs to clear from any given room, mindset and more. I always find it beneficial when his candle is lit which often is while I'm working; I find it helps me to focus more and not submit to any shiny moments. By recognizing what needs to go, one is better fortified to reset.
Archangel Zadkiel's Mandala
Lastly I recommend you chat with Archangel Haniel, the Angel of Manifestation. If you are not sure of what you do want any more (and you would not be alone if one is being truthful), chatting with Haniel is beneficial. She will help remind you of your whys. Why you desire this or that, or any given relationship and much more.
Achangel Haniel's Mandala
In closing, are you ready to say YES and mean it? Are you ready to dump, discard, donate stuff because you now know it is stuff? Are you ready to BE rid of what no longer serves you so you can completely shout out YES and take steps daily to live the life you desire?
I hope so and this is the moon to kick all into higher gear.
Doreen Virtues 'Demonic' List - 'A' February 13 2019 2 CommentsWhat are your thoughts regarding Doreen Virtue's conversion and proclamations that all that she taught, wrote and produced is now 'demonic'? Today I address the first of many on her list; angels.
The day I answered my Soul's Calling February 06 2019 3 Comments
I had a lovely life, still do, but let's go on a journey of sorts; backwards.
I had a lovely life; amazing husband (still do 33+ years and counting), amazing children and more. I was the Soccer Mom as society calls it, although I must admit I stayed home where it was warm snuggled by the fire many a day when she played soccer and let my husband 'participate'.
I had a lovely life, friends, community, and more. I thought it had a direction.
BUT I wasn't happy. Not deep down. It felt too fluffy; not in the warm, fuzzy way, but in the superficial sort of way. No matter what activity I became engaged in, it didn't feel fulfilling. Wasn't sure what could be missing, but deep down knew something was.
My Soul Stirred.
I began to internally whine and there may have been some wine involved.
I was restless. I was becoming unhappy in my own skin. My friends at the moment began to annoy me and support was never there any more. There was ample gossiping and sharing of family dynamics, but ...
Having felt for many a year like a round peg/square hole or visa versa, I pondered is this how friends are suppose to act? So attached I stayed.
Miserable I became.
I ventured out, alone. Went to a Women's Fair at a local hospital and it's the first time I recall feeling energy in my hands. I was truly blown away and then some. THIS the soul whispered.
'This, what?' I questioned...
Keep going it whispered back.
Not very helpful, but kept chugging along.
Took a Reiki training class. Left feeling less than and didn't venture back for over two years. Two years! Why? The teacher felt quite ego centered I did a lot for you today, be gentle on yourself. and that sort of thing. Internal dialogues ran amuck akin to If this is what this 'Love and Light' stuff is all about, they can keep it! To this day, that term rarely exits my mouth or via my fingers in writing format.
My soul stirred some more and eventually found a different teacher to continue Reiki. Meanwhile reading commenced regarding crystals, angels and who knew such a thing as an Ascended Master existed!
My Soul Stretched
As the knowledge grew, my energy matched it. Friendships were dwindling; let's face it they weren't supportive in the truest sense and it was better to 'go it alone' than to explain myself all the time or clam up in an effort to keep the peace and play along.
The angels, The Gang as I now call them, came a knockin' in earnest. I subscribed to magazines and purchased books. Took a little class here, a little class there.
Still I pondered.
Then I heard a word, empath. Empath? Little did I know then I was and AM an empath! I knew sensitivity was high on the charts, but to actually feel what another was going through - there's a word for that and an actual thing?
So all those times when I would call another and ask what's wrong it's because I knew something was up! To this day, my husband downplays this gift when it concerns him; but he has learned he cannot evade those questions forever, for I do know!
As these pieces; empath, angels, energy and more started to settle in, my soul did a little happy dance. You might even say a quick Polka! One can only imagine their dialogue, but pretty sure it went something like:
Quick! She's waking up! Close those old doors. You gotta kick this one in the butt a bit more for she's a bit afraid of what she sees and hears! Start sending her confirmation events so she knows she's not going crazy. Hey, Michael - beef up her protection, she's going to need where she is destined to go. Metatron, open up her Soul Chakra a bit more to help her remember and keep her motivated.
And so on. Beef up the protection he did; thank you Big Mike. Thank you Metatron for keeping me focused and helping me to remember. Thank you Pinky for your impromptu re-introduction and our incessant dialogue. Thank you ALL for being there.
The Soul Awoke
Just to be sure I stayed focused, we moved. Moved not only to a different town, but different state. How would a move keep one focused? I had no friends to derail me with activities. Our children were now adults, so all those after school events were unnecessary. I ventured out a bit, taught a few classes, began conducting readings at stores and folks kept coming back!
Hmmmm... maybe I was onto my soul's calling!
The energies settled enough that there was now no turning back. I loved what I was doing; not with international results (yet), but I loved helping folks remember too.
Soooo they had us move ... again. Yes to a different town in a different state once again. However, this time I did know a few folks in this locale, but the metaphysical isn't, to this day, warmly embraced by many of the locals. So shut mouthed I stayed, but wrote, wrote voraciously, created the oracle deck, wrote more, fine tuned things, began to vend at a variety of metaphysical shows in the region and tested the waters beyond the region.
We were lovingly received.
Hmmmm... I can do what I love and make a living? Who knew?
Now here to stay
Guess what happened then? You'd be right if you said we moved, yep again. To a different town in a different state. Just like you, I keep striving for better; a more true version of me. While I love getting 'angelfied' for metaphysical shows, TV and more, I equally love hanging out in yoga pants and getting muddy walking through the woods.
I've learned in this soul awakening that there are indeed many aspects of me, just like you. It's time they all came out to play. I've learned that not one version is better than the other, for they are all part of me. Certainly some are still hidden - even from me, but now I am more willing than ever to discover them, love on them and well simply BE me.
Will you say YES to you? Let me know how I can help; for that is one of the many things I LOVE doing.
Metatron's Channeled Mandala
WHY do I do what I do? January 30 2019 1 Comment
My life, as yours, has been an interesting journey thus far and and excited to see and own where we go next.
Why do we need to know our WHYS?
Think about it. If one better understands what motivates them and WHY it motivates them, it helps to forge ahead and have a game plan of sorts.
When one better understands and keeps asking WHY in regards to themselves, a new horizon dawns and clarity settles in. Promise.
Everyone wants Love, but so often a mask and a different persona is presented that attracts the magnet to that persona. Eventually it is exhausting to keep that mask on for the real you must emerge. Result? Relationship going south down the drain.
The same can be said for your ideal home. Society, often times in America, has said in order to BE prosperous, one must have a large home. Often times that large home becomes a noose of sorts; cleaning, yard crew, etc. Not to mention utility bills! This is not saying that if your whys take you to a large home that is not ideal; au contraire! I'd say GO FOR IT! Likewise, if living in a tiny home is for you; GO FOR IT! Me? I'm somewhere in the middle. I've learned I LOVE larger (not mansion large), but need the space for it offers energetic expansion. My WHY is I don't like being confined; never have and that includes our home.
Our ideal home includes a kitchen to beat all kitchens for we love to cook and entertain. Our ideal home has a guest cottage on the property to give our weekend clients even more private space. Our ideal home sits near water; viewing and walking distance water. Water fuels our souls and we've come to realize that ever home we've owned has been near water. The list continues, but these are some of our whys.
Listen to your soul. Notice the patterns. Know your whys.
What are YOUR Whys?
This is something I've been chatting about for a bit now; especially with my students. WHY do you wish this or that?
Why do you desire this or that?
It's that digging deep thing I LOVE doing with not only clients and students, but honestly myself, that helps to unleash the WHYS of life. I LOVE, truly LOVE inspiring and empowering people. While I AM above average in the intuition department, I am still only one person and created products to help with the inspiration and empowerment WHY.
I've created The Course (currently open; but remember, doors close on February 6, 2019 until next year) to help student remember their WHYS. Learning to chat with angels helps with whys?
Why? (pun intended) Because as each lesson is delved into, the connection becomes stronger with that angel and their mission. Since angels are here to serve, does it not stand to reason that they help in the WHY category? It does, and honestly was not expecting that to BE such a strong lesson throughout the course, but the students have spoken and it is. Each is blossoming beyond what I could have anticipated when devising The Course.
It has filled a big WHY in my book and as a result The Course is expanding this year with 'new' information BEing added and who knows where else we shall soar? The Course feeds one of my WHYS.
Hope you join us.
Knowing Your Whys
Once you better understand your Whys, it doesn't mean you have to go it all alone. The angels are a constant in my life and while that is indeed comforting and uplifting and often humorous. I can't really 'do coffee' with them, now can I?
Once WHYS are better understood and owned, your support network begins to emerge, solidify and show up. WHY? Because now you are energetically putting out the energy that is more true to you and; therefore, can only naturally bring towards you energy that is supporting what you are sharing.
As an example, I was on a local TV show about six/seven years ago. The woman and I have kinda stayed in touch, but not close knit. However since I am better understanding my WHYS, she asked me back and is thinking about a series of sorts regarding angels!
I AM also collaborating with two amazing goddesses this year and we are going to co-teach a long weekend seminar. Two different goddesses, two different topics. So stay tuned for our announcement of topics and dates!
Collaboration! For once you better understand your WHYS, you know you don't have to know it all, it is rather fun to work and play with others for they get you, support you and Love you for you! Everyone benefits from the collaboration; you, your circle and the world around you whether you are officially teaching, sharing or just BEing.
Seriously. Give it a whirl.
What Angel Helps with Your WHYS?
So glad you asked. Uriel. WHY Uriel? He is the Angel of Safety; therefore, he helps you to BE. He helps you to shine your true light, not one you think others will like, adore, love better. He helps you to BE well YOU.
Uriel oversees the Root Chakra. This chakra energetically is located at the base of the spine, the bottom, the root. As that chakra begins to take control and blossom, one is left no other choice than to BE. How does this work? Simply put your support system from within trickles upward reminding you to BE sensual, empowered, loving, forthright in communication, intuitive and yes spiritual.
Each angel builds upon the other, through working up the chakra system each one BEing independent of the other, but supporting. This is how we are designed to operate; BEing present while reaching and holding onto the stars.
As 2019 is The Breakthrough Year; keep asking WHY. Isn't a Breakthrough? Understanding YOU better?
I think so.
What happens when you Beloved 'pet' leaves? January 23 2019 2 Comments
The Back Story
Many of you know, some of you may not... but now you shall.
Our Beloved girl, Gabi, has left us.
My husband were on our first vacation (more than two consecutive days) in over six years; the verdict is still out long ago, but I digress. We returned on a Friday and had intended to spend a day or two extra with my folks.
Gabi had other plans.
She was staying with my truly amazing sister and as par for her regular morning routine, came downstairs, went outside, laid down and couldn't get back up. That is the text we received.
My heart plummented.
We had separate cars and away we went, back north to BE with her. I knew from the get go it was to be her last physical day with us. We arrived at the 24 ER Vet with not so good news.
Cancer was everywhere in her abdominal area. This is what caused the drama in the morning. A tumor had ruptured on her spleen and there was now internal bleeding. Stable at the moment, but who knows when the next rupture would happen; for it was inevitable.
After MUCH heart searching, chatting with her and more, we did the most humane thing. For IF she had come home, there could be no more swamping expeditions. She could leave us without a moment's notice and go while we were doing errands, sleeping, etc. It helped tremendously, tremendously when students reached out to share that Gabi had already visited them and told them it was her last day and there was nothing we could have done to prevent this. Gabi went to them BEFORE we knew anything. She was smart that way....
How we are moving on from our 'pet' leaving us
A pet can be just that a pet. A four legged critter that is dependent on your for food, shelter and its general well being. I know you, and that is not how you would view it, and neither do we. A 'pet' in our mind happens to have four legs (or two, if it's a bird), but a member of the family. It's a soul you confide in, explore with and attempt to BE the person that they see in you.
It's Love at the core. Never pressure to BE anything but yourself.
Gabi's departure was quick. Yes, I had inklings, she told me, but it was one of those rare times I really wish I wasn't so intuitive and hoped beyond hoped that I was wrong.
It's not been easy. As you too can easily attest if you've ever been in this situation.
What did I do? I painted, no not like Picasso, but walls; lots of walls. I needed something somewhat mindless that allowed me to absorb, shift energy and meditate while being 'productive'. I re-created the healing space where all client work happens. I painted our family room and have plans for other rooms as well.
I ventured out for a 'magical' walk within days of her leaving. My husband was grieving as well - for it is grief, but we were each attempting to be strong for the other. Off to the woods I went. I screamed, I cried, I got angry. Hopefully all out of earshot of any other human. My legs were heavy. It was difficult to walk even what was considered our 'short' walk (3+ miles)
The first week was tough. I cannot lie. Even our cats were in mourning. They could be found frequently laying in 'Gabi's' Room - designated as this was the room she always scampered off to to enjoy her treats. Flowers and cards and sweet memories from students, clients and followers of Gabi and me. We were beyond touched that we had through by simply sharing, had touched so many of you.
The healing continues
The painting has slowed down.
I've taken two more walks in the woods. One with a friend; we both got teary at memories, but they were good cries. We sat near the river, in the snow, like children and just listened and observed.
That was healing in itself; allowing ourselves to BE.
I went for the most recent walk just yesterday. I had a productive morning filled with clients and possible business dealings. Blog posting was attempted but kept getting stalled; it simply wasn't flowing. I was told in no uncertain terms to go for a walk.
Meh. It was cold and I felt somewhat whiny.
THEY, Sandalphon, Auriel, Thuriel; oh heck the entire Gang were persistent... Get Outside!
Finally I complied and headed off. It was getting late and the sun was far past its zenith, but I kept going. Once the woods were entered, I realized getting to the river was not possible due to the lighting. Maybe turn around now? Maybe go to her watering hole?
Eh, I'm turning around.
Lo and behold Gabi appeared, very excited!
'Come on I want to show you something cool!"
I kept trudging along. Upon entering the watering hole area, there stood a beautiful doe. While this may not seem remarkable in itself, it is. NEVER had we seen deer this close in these woods and we had traversed them often enough! Certainly we had seen the back side of many as they ran off, but never as close as this and this still and this curious about what was happening.
But wait, there's more! There was not one, not two, but THREE does! All stopped to look and convey a message. We had a 'moment' of soul exchange. Photos were able to be taken as proof and off they went.
A few more tears were shed. At least the ugly crying had stopped; so there is improvement.
The next steps since Gabi's Departure
She had made a promise to me and me to her.
Her promise is to BE always with me and may come back in dog form so stay tuned. She will always protect me; in fact I heard her growl while in the kitchen yesterday. Not sure whom she was miffed at, but I gratefully accepted it.
My promise? To complete her book, The Gabi Life. For those of you that have been with me, like foreva, may recall this book. No publishing house desired it, so I took it as a sign it wasn't worth pursuing.
Back to the book we go. Why do I know this? It's back in the forefront of things to accomplish. People must remember, Grace Always Begins Inside. There are a few more projects to complete, but then I dive fur and all back into it. Feel free to nudge me periodically...
Until then, embrace each day as the miracle it is.
It is SUPERmoon time! January 16 2019
If we need more proof that 2019 IS The Breakthrough Year, we only need to look to the heavens for confirmation.
Why is that? We have not one, not two, but three super moons in three consecutive months! A super moon, if you are not aware, is loosely defined when the moon is closer than typical to the Earth which results in her appearing quite large in all her lunar magnificence!
We kick off on January 20 for the Blood Super Moon. This super moon is also in conjunction with a lunar eclipse; which is the last lunar eclipse until the year 2021. So while this is not as rare as a total solar eclipse, it does offer keen insights and power for those that choose to harness her energy.
Her? Of course - Luna aka the moon is feminine in all of her watery energy. Auriel, The Lunar Angel, helps to define and brings forth the messages that Luna wishes to share to help all BEcome more empowered.
The Energetic Impact of Super Moons
On your average full moon, the tides can and often are, higher. More babies are born. More crimes committed. In other words, it is a highly charged time when everything and anything can happen.
Now magnify that energy during the super moon and you have a glimpse or an inkling what can happen.
This is not the time to make any sudden decisions or certainly not ones from an emotional standpoint - no marriage proposals now please! It is also not an ideal time for contractual work as emotions will run higher than normal and the fine print and details can be overlooked. Relationships may form, but if formed during these times they are often short-lived - here for a reason!
Events may happen, especially with The Blood Moon on January 21, that can churn up anxiety, feelings of lack, etc. Observe those emotions and let go. These are feelings of un-ease and un-worthiness that are deeply settled in the psyche of the mind and while do reflect a deeper belief system, it/they do not reflect the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter being that you can BE who you are without belittling another, without riding the coattails of another and so on. BE you.
This is the perfect time to think before you act or speak (and I'll repeat this in the next section again to BE sure you read it properly)
This all sounds rather like you wish to stay in bed with the covers pulled up high? Never fear, the Super Blood Moon Eclipse has many benefits and perks...
What this time is great for is clearing.
Harness the Energy of the Super Blood Moon
You have had ideas inkling in the background. Perhaps a project you have started, then stopped, and started and stopped multiple times. Now is a grand time to look at it from a different perspective and fix what has been bothering you. Time to tweak it. Time to say YES to it and therefore YOU.
Now is the perfect time to de-clutter and clear the energy of your sacred space. I did a blog post on this very topic recently. Click on the link to read more. Remember, this is one of the many services I offer privately, so if you require assistance in your space, please email me. Why bother to clear the clutter? Bottom line? All stuff holds energy and unless your stuff makes you happy, what kind of vibe do you think is getting put into what ought to be sacred space?
This is the perfect time to end things; relationships included. Yes, that relationship that you are staying in because you think there is nothing better in store for you. That relationship that if you dwell upon it for a nano-second does not boost, support or send love your way. That relationship that has you reliant on them for they are ultimately controlling. Those are not relationships that serve; Please say YES to you and move on.
Now is a great time to observe. Yes, observe. Observe your trigger points. What situations put you off kilter?
What emotions arise that push you off balance?
This is the perfect time to think before you act or speak. No flying off the handle since you are BEing forewarned.
We're Just Getting Started
As I mentioned earlier in this post, the Super Moon of January is the first of three. The next is on February 19, 2019 (2/19/19) and the last on March 21, 2019 (3/21/19). There is much numerical significance in these dates...
For example, 219 (thanks to Sacred Scribes interpretation) says it is time to focus. Focus on you, your life purpose and mission... I'm hearing the drum song, aren't you?
The last date, 319 says it is time to step into greater confidence with the assistance of the angels as well as Ascended Masters and own your brilliance.
Need I say more?
Let's Wrap This Up
We are entering a very high powered, high energy time thanks to multiple Blood Moons. It has the potential to throw you off balance. If it does, allow it to BE so. Then adjust your sails, regroup and sail more easily back to your center.
You are being forewarned of this impending energy. Energy that has actually already started. Energy that has been amping up for a couple of months on only to explode metaphorically in the first quarter of this year.
Prepare now by getting rid what doesn't serve you. Prepare now by saying YES to you. IF you need assistance, you know where to find me.
As some of you know, 2019 has been dubbed
The Breakthrough Year
by The Angels, aka The Gang.
Every soul will experience their own personal Breakthrough. Can you imagine (not to quote John Lennon) every person BEing? Can you imagine every soul shining? Can you imagine the possibilities?
What is a 'Breakthrough'?
Great question. A breakthrough is saying YES to you.
A Breakthrough is living a life that is more expansive vs. restrictive.
A Breakthrough is BEing supported.
A Breakthrough is BEing recognized for your innate talents by the world at large. Does this mean each soul is going to waltz down the red carpet and have their name in lights? Of course not. However by BEing recognized for your innate talents gathers to you your tribe, your peeps, your fellow Freak Flag Holders.
Your Breakthrough is YOU LOVING YOU. One tends to add phrases such as 'more purely', 'more deeply', 'unconditionally', but doesn't that go against the very essence of Love? Love IS pure. Love IS deep. Love IS unconditional.
By Loving YOU, you say YES.
By Loving YOU, you experience your Breakthrough.
How to Experience Your Breakthrough in 2019
I don't do resolutions. Really. I feel like a failure when they are not accomplished and that kinda goes against my grain of thinking; disempowerment. Instead I latch onto one word for the year that greatly assists me in making decisions.
My word for this year is this:
IF I am to have my Breakthrough on the personal as well as soul mission front, I must BE proactive in creating those dreams. Even if one wishes to win the lottery, they gotta play! Hence proactive - buy that ticket!
I do take proactive a bit deeper. Is this idea, product, thought, action in alignment with me? I ask my soul by placing my hands over my heart. When my heart expands and does a proverbial Happy Dance, I know it is in alignment with me.
If, however, all goes quiet; flatline so to speak, then I know it is not meant for me. This does not mean it is a bad idea. It's just not one for me personally or professionally.
Give it a whirl for yourself.

Space Clearing 101 November 14 2018
I've had a few clients in recent days reach out and ask...
How Do I Clear My Space Energetically?
While I coach clients all day long on this very topic and could be another book I was told during meditation this morning to write this in hopes of helping you clear your space and prepare for 2019; The Breakthrough Year.
Why Do Spaces Need Clearing?
I know you clean or have your home cleaned. That is clean. Mr. Clean clean. However, energy is a completely different ball of wax.
Let's make it a bit more abstract. Have you ever avoided a place simply because it didn't feel good? On the flip side, have you flocked to a location simply because it felt yummy?
That's energy. People, buildings, animals and yes the even land hold energy. Who doesn't love feeling clean? Buildings, animals and land are no different and love BEing cleared of what is not serviceable. Think of a building, or any room in a building. It is typically those blessed corners; that stagnant energy is birthed. If left to its own devices the stagnancy builds and creeps into the space that is used. By the time it gets into a space and becomes noticeable, it becomes more difficult clear and to feel good in this space.
How do you know if your space requires clearing? Here are some clues that your space is in need of cleaning:
- It just plain feels yucky
- It has a smell that is not pleasant and no amount of cleaning gets rid of it
- You can't focus, in fact you feel very scattered
- Restless, sleep deprived and yet can't sleep
- Ahem, discussions aka arguments have increased
- Your pets avoid certain parts of your home
And so on.
All of these are lower energy indicators that at minimum have you stuck in your current state of affairs and can certainly lead to worse. Much worse.
Before you go rushing off to various corners to clear, keep in mind that lower/stagnant energy can land in a very prominent area of your home as well. In fact just recently a portal of crap emerged in our home. The location? At the bottom of the stairs leading into the kitchen. This location is like Grand Station; one goes through it several times daily. Therefore, it certainly did not pop up due to lack of energy. But pop up it did.
It smelled. It smelled so bad that a new litter box was purchased (the thinking was the plastic had absorbed the odors over the years) Didn't work. With the wedding, shows, clients, etc. I didn't pay close attention; my bad. So it grew in power and size. Oops.
Don't rush off to buy sage! I don't use it at all these days with the exception of the fire ceremonies with private weekend clients.
Why I do NOT use Sage
We lived in a beautiful home years ago in the Baltimore area. The original house had burned to the ground (first clue we ought not to have taken it). The original owners had divorced, neighbors thought them 'weird', well you get the idea. Luckily for us, we were renting.
From Day One my daughter and I heard voices from the woods behind the house that were shall we say, not pleasant. Neither of us would go out the back willingly at night. I planted crystals in the backyard in hopes to build a wall of energy to prevent the infiltration, but little did we know they were already in the house and deeply embedded.
I was still somewhat green behind the ears and did what I had done before; I saged the house.
The house did feel better; however, only for one or two days at best and then all hell would break loose. Arguments, more voices and getting work done on any level was a nice idea that never happened. Honestly it got worse than that, but won't bore you with the details.
It was then that I learned that sage can feed certain energies. YES, feed.
LUCKILY I had also just created the aromatherapy line and began to implement the energies of the Violet Flame courtesy of the Zadkiel Candle and honestly have not looked back since.
How to Clear your Space
There are many thoughts on space clearing and some situations clearly call for an expert and more tools. However, below is how I operate and it works for us.
First, this is not a ceremony that can be rushed or done in 20 minutes. Allow as much time as needed for your space. Quiet your mind and BEcome centered. If you bring anxiety to the ceremony, you will create more anxiety, etc. Play music, work in silence; whatever is best for you.
- Call on Big Mike to surround you and your space with protective energies.
- Grab two of my candles; Zadkiel for the Transmutative Energies AND another angel candle based on the intention for that space; healing, self love, harmony, etc. Why two? I admit, I'm lazy. IF the angels can work on my behalf while I'm clearing, why not?!
- Start on the top most floor (this includes your attic if accessible)
- Go to the 'far left corner' (this is based on your front door's location).
- Start in the far left corner of that room.
- Light the Zadkiel Candle.
- Light your Intention Candle and place as close as possible in the center of the room.
- Working in a counter clockwise motion. Linger or move as quickly as your soul guides you.
- IF it has been a while since your space has been cleared, open all drawers, closets, cabinetry, etc and clear those as well - lower energies love to hide.
- As you work in a counter clockwise pattern, use your hands, feathers or other tools to direct the Zadkiel candle's energy up, down, etc. It is not silly if you feel guided to do so.
Once that room is complete, repeat the pattern for every other room in your space. Always work in a counter clockwise motion; room to room and within each room.
Why counter clockwise? Think of it as unwinding the energy. Once the top floor is complete, repeat the pattern on any other level, always working downward.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect from Space Clearing?
In a nutshell; pristine, expansive calming and empowering energies.
As an example, years ago one of our daughters was at the beach house ahead of me. She was working on the day I arrived.
WOW I think, she cleaned the house.
I thanked her profusely when she came home. Mom, all I did was clear the space.
It's that powerful.
How Often Do You Need to Clear Your Space?
The answer to that is as varied as all those reading this post.
Company? Clear within 24 hours of their departure.
Client work? Clear weekly at minimum; ideally daily. You and your clients will be giddy.
Holidays? Double up! Before and after company arrivals.
Trauma locally, regionally, nationally, internationally that has affected you? Clear.
Sidebar prior to Space Clearing - Clutter Clearing
I'm a Clutter Clearing Nut so we don't often have loads of stuff to get rid of. However, with multiple moves under our belt, when it is time to clutter clear, this is the practice that works for me:
- Light the Zadkiel candle in the room I am tackling.
- Leave said room for a good 30 minutes or more. As I doing something else in our home, Zadkiel is quick to work and easily begins pointing out the various clothing, decor items, books etc. that need a new home.
Since Zadkiel is metaphorically fluffing up the unwanted energy, it becomes less painful to be rid of articles that are not serving us. I am better able to dis-engage from the emotional tie (grandma gave this to me kind of thing); knowing that I will always love grandma and I don't need it to prove my love for her.
I create a few piles; trash, keep, donate. The donation can also be a sell pile if we are so inclined to make a few bucks. I then make a call to a local donation center for a pick up and since I am still a Good Girl at heart and not desiring to disappoint, there is a pile waiting for them on pickup day.
Once the room is clear of all clutter, I then commence with the Space Clearing. It can frequently lead to wall painting, window cleaning, moving around the decor making the space feel more spacious, welcoming and protected.
Where to start? I start with a quiet room; a room that is not frequently used. That way I can go visit this new yummy energy and it encourages me to continue with the rest of our home.
I hope fervently that this blog has opened your eyes and soul and has prompted you to Clear Your Space!
As the Leaves Fall November 02 2018
Gabi and I were out for one of our daily walks this week. This was so needed for us both and walk we did; over five miles by the time we returned home.
Why was this walk needed more than others? We haven't been able to do so due to weather. This has been an extremely wet spring, summer and fall for us here and when it finally dried out, the skeeters were only too happy to make us part of their buffet...no thank you. Bottom line, we haven't had a proper get lost in the woods walk in many, many weeks.
This week was it! The weather was sublime especially for this time of year; warm with little or no humidity. We took full advantage of it and grabbed a big chunk of time to escape, find our equilibrium, gain clarity, not to mention exercise. It is a beautiful time for I've no cell service. It's just her and I meandering, taking photos, looking at the wildlife and simply BEing. We are blessed to live in an area where there is access to miles and miles of trails mere moments from our back door and it is a gift that is greatly appreciated daily in our home.
As part of my walking ritual, I pose a question to The Gang (angels) prior to leaving our home. As this particular day there was nothing pressing in my mind I simply asked for clarity and a message to share with y'all.
The world over seems to rejoice in the beauty that fall can bring; nature offers fireworks in glorious colors for weeks on end. As you will see, we are just starting to turn the colors here, nothing truly noteworthy as far as the colors go, but there were messages!
As we sat to meditate (yes Gabi meditates and stands guard while I do) by the river, I noticed the leaves gently falling.
Falling every single time right side up. Leaves have a right side up? In this scenario, yes. The leaf is gently curled on one side; hence right side up.
As each leaf gently landed on the water, it was always right side up.
What gives I asked... this is the message, I know... so share.
The Angels Message
The Pondering of Falling Leaves
As Gabi and I continued to sit there, I pondered this message from the Angels and asked them how does this apply to all?
The more I pondered, the more clear it became that it does indeed apply to all; Good Girls included. Who hasn't wanted to break the mold or the perceived chains that bind them at some point in their life? I know I have. It can get frustrating when you know there is more, but can't seem to have that breakthrough for clarity or recognition or...
The more I pondered, I realized this message was and is profound for those that chose to heed its advice.
Sometimes, for who really cares to admit that it is a must, one must have a hiccup per se in order to move forward with greater clarity of who they are, what they are here to do and why and with whom.
Shedding the old paradigms that can certainly constrain you is paramount for personal as well as spiritual growth.
This is what I have done personally and let's face it, some of those hiccups were far from a hiccup; I fought it tooth and nail, but of course my soul prevailed of what was needed and I carried on.
I carried on to help others do the same with hopefully less trauma; but as I have learned, another's trauma is another's hiccup. We go through what is needed for us to go through in order to BE a better reflection of who we are destined to BE.
Join MeJoin me in saying YES to you. Let's work together, come for a private weekend and more. Say YES to you... you cup runneth over and The Gang does indeed support you and is waiting to show you more.
Maid, Mother, Crone October 26 2018What is the definition of Maid, Mother and Crone? How do you label yourself?
What Archangel Raphael has to say... September 28 2018 3 Comments
So many of you have written me privately and have also shared publicly how the current state of the world is affecting you emotionally, physically, mentally and of course spiritually.
So I chatted with Archangel Raphael, the Angel of Healing, to find out what one can do and how it may be affecting you on these various levels.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Physically
In a nutshell; lethargy. Energy is beyond low, for you. Your brain says DO SOMETHING and your body is... meh.
Cravings for the comfort foods is higher than it has been. Eating the higher in carb loaded foods contributes greatly to the lethargy. Raphael is looking at me now and shaking his head in frustration. He has something to say on this:
Listen to what your body needs
What you think you need
What you think you need offers a bandaid of blanketing over your emotional rawness. Eat less, yes I said eat less. Your body is vibrating at a higher level as you approach the next dimension. By eating less, you are actually fueling your entire BEing more properly for this allows you to use your internal resources to kick into higher gear and support you better.
You must move your body. As easy as it may be to sit and DO nothing, this does not serve you or your body. Even if you only go for a quick walk. This does more for you than you may realize. Lethargy breeds lethargy. Move!
Love your body for what it does for you.
Love your body for how it has supported you.
Those acne marks, stretch marks, wrinkles and more contribute to your innate beauty. How about loving YOU for you and not pining away for something that was or may never be?
In other words, no more laying in bed or wishing you could lay in bed with the covers pulled over your head until this blows over. It may not blow over for a while and by doing so, you slow or completely stall your own soul's advancement.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Mentally
Talk about BEing confused, snarky and completely on edge!
This energy has hit you mentally as well. As an example, a massive earthquake (7.5) hit Indonesia on 9/27/18. Now you may not live anywhere near Indonesia, but as you are empathic, you felt Gaia's tremblings long before she erupted. These tremblings have contributed your mental facilities being on hyper overdrive and not understanding the source.
Once again, I asked Raphael...
These energy surges as you call them are more than surges. It is part of the Ascension Process and because so many are still living in fear they immediately kick back and scream "Keep it the same!" and then moan and groan quickly about their life not being any better.
This becomes a vicious cycle of pining for different but doing nothing in order to facilitate the change. In fact often times one goes out of their way to keep the status quo.
How can this help you mentally?
One must be more proactive in their own soul development.
One must actively meditate daily.
This signifies to us that one is ready to expand and take on life in a more joyous and loving manner.
By meditating, one can clear their mental faculties more quickly and permanently while becoming more inspired within their personal life. Does it change the outward happenings in the world? Initially no. However, it does start within and your 100 Monkey Syndrome quickly morphs into more humans BEing which then of course shifts the consciousness into higher vibrating energies.
How to meditate if you don't already? Check out YouTube. There are hundreds, nay thousands of guided meditations out there. One of these days, I'll upload a few myself... If you don't like one, go onto to another.
You may also find meditation classes in your area via a yoga studio, etc. Often times when first starting, it is helpful to have someone gently and lovingly guide you through until you are more confident in this practice.
Remember to call upon Big Mike for those protective energies first! No need to invite the lower energies in.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Emotionally
The shifts are certainly hitting the emotional button as well. I've been getting teary at the drop of a hat lately. So much so my husband will ask, Where's a hat so you may now cry? While it may not sound very loving in his response, it gets me to laugh. One may logically go to the place that our daughter is getting married next month and well, if you've a child to get married, you know how emotionally charged the event is!
So yes, it could be those wedding bells, but it is much more than that. Raphael, what say you?
Your emotional well BEing is certainly being tested at the moment. You know the difference between right and wrong, but so many things 'get in your way' that seem to prevent you.
Heed the two suggestions above; proper food and meditation.
Those combined will offer great support to you mentally and immediately begin to shift your emotional outlook not only in your personal world, but beyond.
One of the key acts you may do is Acts of Self Love.
These are the Acts frequently recommended to help you not only relax, but refuel and recharge your entire BEing. Emotional included.
It is any Act you perform for yourself that once complete helps you feel more centered and clear minded. It may include a massage, yoga class, walk in nature, reading a book that broadens your horizons (in other words, not junky 'fun' books), but ones that offer a more profound meaning of the universe.
Get your mind engaged in more joy-filled activities only helps to uplift you emotionally. What activity uplifts you?
Well it looks like I'll be making a massage appointment later today and committing to yoga classes next week. Time to get back in the swing of things of putting me in the To Do list as well.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Spiritually
How can you trust anything out there at the moment? In many ways it seems the world is going to Hell in the proverbial Hand Basket so how can one trust why this is a good thing?
Oh Archangel Raphael, Angel of Healing?
Once again it is part of the Ascension Process.
Yes, I know many of you have been hearing of this process for decades and you think the masses ought to be there by now.
Not true, obviously. If you had all collectively accomplished this, we would not be now having this conversation.
Many of you have lovingly stepped forward to assist others in the process through coaching, readings, healings (via akashic records, energy, crystals, etc.) You are a leader and as such must heed these warnings in order to assist others.
However, you may take solace in the knowledge that it is happening. How can you be certain? For the lower energies are fervently working now, more than ever, to keep you stuck and living in a state of fear.
Now is the time for you to call upon us more often.
Now is the time for you to call upon the Ascended Masters.
Now is the time for you to use all the tools you have at hand and those offered to you to stop the madness.
You are a warrior. Warriors can get weary which is why I am addressing the spiritual aspect last. I have offered you tools above. Here is the last one:
Place your hands over your heart.
Listen to your heartbeat.
This is your soul speaking.
Quietly listen. What else does it have to share? All messages received from the soul are the truth. Fear has no place in truth.
Listen with Love.
Now apparently is the time to shed the bed linens, go for a walk and mediate with your soul. Who will join me? I shall also be lighting his candle today and wearing my Ariel Angel Glow medallion for courageous healing.
Like what you've read? Please share across the world. I do believe all could benefit from this message.
The Harvest Full Moon, 2018 - What YOU can do to reap its rewards September 24 2018
In case you haven't noticed, I'm a more 'flying by the seat of my wings' kinda goddess. Therefore, it ought to come as no big surprise that your heads up preview for our full moon comes on the day of this Big Beautiful Harvest Moon...
It's just kinda how I roll...
What IS the Harvest Moon?
The Harvest Moon is always delegated as such based on its proximity to the Fall Equinox; two weeks prior or two weeks after the equinox. No matter when the moon is full in the four week timeframe, it is designated The Harvest Moon.
All moons; whether it be a full moon, new moon, waxing or waning, hold specific energy. All of them.
The Energy of the Harvest Moon
Because all full moons hold energy, it is best to understand the power of this particular full moon; The Harvest Moon. Yes it is most certainly about harvesting, but there is much more to it than that....
The moon is in the energy of Aries. Aries? isn't Aries back in March and April? Yes of course it is, but the moon is in Aries energy. This is because when a moon is full, it is the opposite of the sun; and therefor the sun sign. If it is opposite of the sun, then that means the Harvest Moon is in Aries - opposite.
This moon, and I'm sure you are already nodding your head in agreement, holds tremendous upheaval and power. Think back in very recent times in your personal life; what has not gone according to plan? What may have imploded on you? (It really didn't implode by the way, but signified a more dramatic letting go process due to, ahem, holding onto something tendencies). This upheaval time is allowing you to plant proper seeds that are in better alignment with you.
The Moon is in Aries, but where is the sun?
The sun's energy is in Libra which is the consummate balancer. IF you combine the fiery Aries and balancing Libra energies; is it any wonder that there is an upheaval energy that is begging for balance?
Of course there is. You are itching for change, but yet crave balance. What to do? Compromise. Compromise doesn't mean giving in or giving up. It offers a chance to re-evaluate those desires and through that; you better understand what it really is that is desired. Through that you create balance within you and that of course extends outwardly into your life.
Simply put; what do you desire that will create better balance in your world? What needs to be let go in order to do so? How can you do something/anything differently?
How does the Harvest Moon Affect You Personally?
To thine own self BE true.
This fiery, balancing, emotional upheaval is not the ideal time to pick a fight; any fight no matter how valid your cause may be. It is a chance to reflect and notice what has triggered this inner turmoil that may have you wishing you were a world class samurai soldier wielding multiple swords at once. Before you come out wielding those swords,
Hold on. Catch your breath and thoughts.
Instead of battling it outwardly. Take advantage of this power and focus on the whys. We often go to the whys and whats that can offer great clarity ...
- Why do I wish to do this or that?
- What is my motivation to do this or that?
BE honest with yourself with each why and what. Brutally honest. IF it is fame and fortune, don't BE bashful! IF it for prosperity beyond your wildest dreams, go for it! IF it is to live a life of solitude in a remote cabin, why not? IF it is....
Aries and your beautiful head
Aries rules your physical head. Combine that with the balancing act of Libra, many of you will wish to change your hair color, style, new jewelry (think earrings, necklace, etc. - see all head related stuff). That's the fun part of Aries, but as in most things energy, it can go deeper.
Your ego and brain are obvious also in your head space. What has been weighing you down; do you harbor feelings of being abandoned, not recognized, nobody loves me guess I'll go eat worms scenarios, etc. Now is the perfect time to purge! Write down all those feelings of injustice (whether real or imagined, remember if you think it real, it has become so to varying levels in your psyche).
Write. Everything. Down.
Now burn it. Oh the cathartic energy that is consume in this simple and powerful ritual. If your inner circle tribe is close by, this is even more powerful when done as a group. Each person offers support in the releasing process. No need to read your list aloud, but IF you do, your heart begins to hear it quicker and the healing through love may BEgin that much faster. Remember, no judgment is allowed on your feelings. You have felt them. Honor them and know now it is time to change your story.
What Angel to Chat with during this Harvest Moon?
In a nutshell? All of them! Really. However, I know that is not the answer you desire. The Gang member that showed up first?
Ariel, alias Pinky (my guardian angel for those of you who don't know the story, may find more about her in my latest book in the guardian angel section). Ariel is The Angel of Courage and offers this message:
Azrael, The Angel of Transition, was close behind. Now Azrael is often labeled as the Angel of Death, which is rather doom and gloom and melodramatic in my book, so I had a chat with him. His response?
What is Death but transition? Do you not transition from one thing to another on a regular basis?
Do you not clear the clutter to bring in more of what is desired?
Do you not attempt to let go of old paradigms in order to shine brighter?
Do you not let go in order to embrace new?
Is it not time to let go and BE?
Who am I to argue with either of these two? I suggest you don't attempt to either.
I know I've got the Azrael Candle lit today and it smells heavenly.
It is now time to embrace this fiery and balancing moon that we call Harvest.
Universal Energy Shifts and How to Navigate Them September 06 2018 1 Comment
No doubt about it, the shifts in energy right now are palpable. So many have reported:
- Crazy CRAZY Dreams
- Heightened awareness of intuitive gifts
- Nauseous sensations that cannot be explained
- Extremely sensitive
- Food cravings
- Extreme lack of energy
You see, very real and very palpable. This energy shift is hitting all the levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
One could blame seasonal allergies. But they're not.
One could blame a virus that is running around. But it's not.
One could blame you are being overly sensitive. But you're not.
It's very real and very much in your face. There is no way to escape this one.
How to Combat This Energy Shift
You most likely would love to pull the covers over your head and wait it out. Not a good idea.
Why's that? I like my bed you say...
Because this shift is helpful. This shift is spotlighting within you things that let's say it as simply as possible; you've been ignoring. ALL have aspects of themselves that wish would simply go away. However, these aspects do create the whole and the whole is a human who is perfectly imperfect.
Each and every human is that.
When these aspects of ourselves are acknowledged, then the healing can begin and these energy shifts cease to throw you into a whirlwind that can seem insurmountable.
Acknowledge what you are going through. This is not a Get out of Jail Free Card if you have become a whining mess and are doing nothing about it. This is literally stopping what you are doing and recognize that what you are going through is very real and personal. By acknowledging this you begin the unraveling process and its control over you begins to lessen.
Acknowledge if this is making you tired. We've been going to bed earlier than normal for us because that is what our bodies are screaming at us...SLEEP is what we need!
Acknowledge if you need to eat! However, eating higher vibration foods; fresh fruits, veggies, etc. will greatly assist in the maneuvering this latest energy shift. Think about it, if you are gearing up to run a marathon, would your diet consist mostly of oreos and ice cream? Probably not, right? Why would you, ahem, fuel your body with the same lower vibration foods if you are undergoing an energy shift?
Acknowledge if you need to say NO and stick to it! Saying no at times is the most powerful thing you can do. It can signify you've had enough. It can signify that this is not in alignment with you and you are actively choosing to not engage (vs. the opposite 'Scarlett' Way... ignoring and worry about it tomorrow)
Acknowledge when you need assistance. This is equally powerful NO, it is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign that says, I AM enough, but know I cannot do it all and therefore could benefit from outside help. That help could be seeing a counselor, coach. Hiring a coach to help navigate this quagmire of energy (I know of a great angel one ;) . Ask your inner circle to step up and pitch in.
Once acknowledgement is made, you most likely will begin to feel the release of the tension that you probably didn't even know you were holding onto.
Now in Step Two you can start sending it some major lovin' energy. This it of course is you.
That tension you are holding onto? That turns into tighter muscles. That turns into stress related illnesses. That turns into plain ol' yuck.
By acknowledging it, you are now on your way to LOVIING it. Feel your body begin to soften in this powerful energy of Love. You already opened the doors by acknowledging it. Taking it a step deeper into relaxation through Love.
If possible, place your hands over the part of your body that desires attention first. Of course you have asked Big Mike (aka Archangel Michael) in for protection purposes and now are calling upon Raphael and Chamuel. For loving energy to enter. By placing your hands there or focusing on that body area, that is where the energy of Love will start. I often use Chamuel's Ritual Dropper. I apply a few drops to my hands, rub together, hold up to my face to breathe in the energy and then place on that part of my body.
Allow it to build and in many ways blast open what tension is there. Do not be surprised if you well up in your eyes as this area that has been ignored for so long is now BEing honored.
Once the area is more love based and love-filled, the true healing can commence.
This of course is Raphael's jurisdiction; healing.
Big Mike and Chamuel are still on hand, but now Raphael is the leader in this scenario. Feel his healing wings upon you and gently and lovingly infusing your body with healing on all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
The energy may pulsate as it softly breaks up the tension further, but through that pulsing energy, it jells and begins its true healing. I often will add to this the Raphael Ritual Dropper Oil. I apply it the same way I apply the Chamuel's oils.
Just last week and client was scheduled for her first public musical concert in ages. No surprise she came down with a cold on the day of to the point her throat was swollen and swallowing was difficult. Not only did she apply Raphael, but Mother Mary's Ritual Oil. Immediately her head felt clearer as did her entire BEing. Her peformance? Flawless.
Talk about an energy shift to beat all energy shifts! She did exactly what I am sharing here; acknowledged, loved and allowed the healing to commence.
Yes, you've read it before, but the Art of Allowing now goes deeper and higher.
Higher? Yes, for now you will be more attuned to the energies around you whether they stem from your inner circle to global to universal. Through your intimate cleansing, you will better know where other disturbances are brewing and how best you could assist in that arena. Prayer? Warning? Active Healing Energy? There are many ways to better understand what is going to happen, what is happening and how you may offer assistance... remember you can always say no.
The Shifts are real. What has been provided for you within this blog are some basic, but powerful tools that have helped countless others navigate them without nary a scratch.
Prepare and Self Care are the highest things to do. Never forget.
