It's a Balancing Act... March 20 2017 2 Comments
The energy has been all over the map. A great client called it a Mac Truck Hit and Run...she wasn't far off...
Today is the first day of spring and only as you already do... let's bring in a bit more support for all; especially ourselves. Be gentle on yourself. Do those Daily Acts of Self Love ... it was a warning... everything I share with you is not to 'hear myself talk'; it's done with you in mind and only your highest well being, safety (Big Mike for protection), Chamuel for Self Love, Uriel for safety to shine your brightest light
Lower Energies are amping up their power by actually working together... do NOT dabble in this arena... it's not an easy feat nor for the faint of heart... seriously. It's why the Atlantis Pendant is out... so all may benefit from its protective energies...
Here's a list of suggestions that can help you stay true to you and maintain a semblance of balance.
- Lay low when needed and when possible
- Eat HEALTHY foods (comfort food lowers your vibration, no matter how yummy they taste. This of course is null if comfort foods in your world are high energy, high protein; salads, etc.)
- Sleep - get to bed earlier. You can turn the TV off; the world most likely will not end while you sleep
- Use the Sacred Clearing Mister. It's infused with the energies of Violet Flame and will kick out some of the nasty stuff.
- If you are into crystals, and let's face it, who isn't... Here are a couple of recommendations; Rose Quartz - Self Love. Tektites- Protection. Yellow Calcite-Happy Power. Boji Stones-Balance. Let me know below in your comments others you love.
- Use the Sacred Clearing Mister. It's infused with the energies of Violet Flame and will kick out some of the nasty stuff.
- Exercise - makes you feel great and raises your chi
- Yoga - HUGE fan of yoga, but even I chose to miss one class last week due to my energy levels being low
- Walks - fast paced ones to get your heart excited
- Kickboxing or some other form of aerobics - it does feel good to legitimately punch something once in a while
- HOWEVER, and it's a BIG however, don't push yourself beyond your limits. It's one thing to exercise to feel better. It's quite another
- Let me know some of your favorites and why in the comments below.
and remember, we are all in this together and you are safe in our Facebook group. If you are not a member of the group, come and join us!
Ramblings of an Angel Goddess... March 15 2017 3 Comments
Trust is such a funny thing, isn't it?
We can trust that as long as we've paid our bills that lights go and off. We don't even that a second thought really.
We trust when we go to a restaurant, no matter how much stars it's rated, that our order will arrive exactly as we requested.
We trust that when shoes are purchased, it is for one pair and a left and right are in the box.
Then the trust begins to waver the more personal it gets.
We hope that another loves us if we love them.
We hope we get hugged back.
We hope to purchase the winning lottery ticket
We hope and dream about manifesting our deepest desires
We hope and dream ...
Why is that? Why can't everyone achieve their desires?
It's a two-fold answer sadly; low self worth and not trusting it can happen to them.
As you well know, change is a constant. You literally grow; as a result your clothing sizes have changed over the years. Your tastes change. I'm even going to go out on a limb and say you've moved at least once in your lifetime.
As change is a way of life, our sense of worth changes along with it. Have a few bad romantic relationships? One begins to think it doesn't exist except in the movies. Trust me, it DOES exist; you may not have met them yet as your true self is yet to fully emerge (Chat with Uriel and ask Why is it safe for me to be me?). Employment is another; not feeling satisfied at your job or employed, one may think they don't deserve better over time. Trust me, you deserve MUCH better (Why is it so easy for me to have my perfect job?). If you aren't excited about your job most days, then please start looking for another. Look dreamily at those homes on HGTV or covet another's 'luck'? You deserve the home of YOUR dreams; it may take a while, but trust me, it's worth it. I've lived in many houses over my life and have loved them all for what happened there (memories), but now LOVE living in our New Digs more than any other place. (Why is it so easy for me to live in my dream home?)
It's a bit of learning about yourself; okay a LOT of learning about yourself. What do you really desire? What kind of life do you wish? Do you wish a fast-paced city kind of life or something at the other end of the spectrum say perhaps on a deserted island or something in between? Take your time answering this one. It's bigger than you may think.
Once you figure that out, look at a map. Which area calls to you? Why not explore it? Perhaps start as a vacation or a day trip. Investigate via the internet and their Chamber of Commerce, etc. When this information is being compiled, does this area still call to you? How can you make it happen? Start applying for jobs at this new locale is one way. Start clutter clearing. This signifies to The Gang that you are no longer complacent and are ready for change. You may even start packing boxes.
Write a journal entry dated five years from now. Imagine you are living that life. Describe your day from start to finish. Feel the excitement upon awakening in your dream home. Feel the giddiness that you are living the dream.
Simply because you trusted in your hopes and dreams and the change it would bring and embraced it all by knowing you are worthy.
Please feel free to leave your comments below; this helps get the blog noticed by others that may benefit from the ramblings!
We've another Full Moon approaching in a few days... this one is in Virgo.
As many of you are aware, astrology makes my hair hurt. I know I'm an Aries, but please don't ask what the sun or moon were doing at the time of my arrival let alone what was conjuncting ....
Having said that, The Gang told me to look up Virgo traits (very helpful since I have LOADS of Virgo folks in my life) and to no surprise perfectionism is one of the key terms.
Your hidden, or not so hidden, perfectionist monster may be rearing its head in the coming days, if it hasn't already. This is prime time to sit back and observe. Luckily for all, the full moon is on Sunday when most of us are off from the work force. This will allow plenty of time to process, dwell and explore our inner Mary Poppins Syndrome.
You see, Mary Poppins is one of my heroes. Has been since a child with my father threatening to break the record since I played it morning, noon and well into the night. In fact Angel Chatter is sponsoring a viewing of this movie in a couple of weeks at our local island theatre. THAT'S how much I love this movie.
But yet not. You see Mary Poppins, my hero, is only PRACTICALLY perfect. She is not even perfect!
Nope, not even the goddess of all things
is perfect. Neither are you. Make it easy on yourself by not trying to be. Observe when that side of you emerges and how it makes you feel. Typically it is far from empowering. It's often feels quite belittling with phrases creeping in that convey the message of what you just created well sucks. Remember, pobody is nerfect... YOU are gloriously perfectly imperfect.
Therefore, everything that every human creates is imperfect. Everything we create can be improved upon. However, it's knowing when it is time to pull back and knowing the time to release it to the world at large for it is as perfect as it can be... for now. It's empowering to realize this, more than you may understand.
I chatted with The Gang about this and asked who wanted to step forward to remind us of this fact. Shamael came barreling forward in a matter of seconds. Shamael, the Angel of Harmony. Taking it easy. Going with the flow. The Art of Allowing Self to Receive.
Chat with Shamael to garner ideas of how you may, ahem, perfect the Art of Allowing. I know I'll be lighting his candle in just a few moments with this energy in mind.
Please leave your comments below, it helps others to find us! Thank you from my heart to yours.
Lean on Me March 08 2017 4 Comments
As I too grow and learn I realize on a daily basis how fortunate I am to have such a strong support network.
That includes you.
If it weren't for you, I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing. Even if you only read these posts and leave a message, it encourages me. As we all grow on our individual path, we gather to us a loving community. A community that is always there, no matter what. A community that stands strong as individuals and stronger as a unit.
What kind of community have you gathered to you? If those around you don't cheer you on, offer a shoulder and even periodically call you on the carpet for not following through, then those my Dear Chatterer really aren't your peeps.
Those are what I call 'The Stand Ins' They are simply standing there watching. No real engagement. No real support. No real... well anything. Time to pull back a bit and allow room for true friends to enter.
Not sure how to go about this? Chat with Uriel; The Angel of Safety. Use his 'famous' Askfirmation -
Why is it safe for me to be me?
If you aren't showing up in your authentic yumminess, how can you attract those who really support you?
No worries, this big change most likely won't happen overnight, unless of course you are FULLY aware of these Stand Ins, like I was. YEARS ago, I had a bunch of friends, lovely women really, but deep down I knew they weren't my peeps. They would literally disregard the topics that were important to me and would often say 'There she goes again.' Insert eye rolls here please, very appropriate.
Well I knew they weren't true friends, but I didn't have a better offer. I was getting kind of miserable to be honest. I wasn't following my dreams and at that point I had just a mere inkling of what those dreams entailed. Sooooooo......
The Gang took the matter into their own wings. All four of those friends dumped me in the course of two weeks.
I carried on, went into the 'depths of my despair' (Anne of Green Gables fan here) and could have won an Oscar.
For one year.
Yes one year. However, in that year I did tremendous soul searching. I began to look beyond and get excited about other things that mattered to ME; energy healing, crystals, and of course angels... they weren't yet The Gang.
Am I glad I did! By the time we left the neighborhood, I thanked one of them in person. Deep down she understood. The kicking out of the nest was one of the best things that ever happened to me; unsavory as it was.
However, if you don't wish such a heart ripping experience, and yet feel akin to how I did, it may be time to start being a bit more proactive in YOUR dreams. A bit more proactive in coming out of the closet to shine your light, fly your freak flag and simply BE YOU.
You deserve a GREAT support group no matter where you and they live. Mine are literally scattered around the world. Family in Europe, Florida, California and more. Chatterers who have become family. I grin and shout HURRAH at your success ... that's no lip service; it's real. It's who I am.
Who are you?

Labels, oh how we succumb March 01 2017
Have you ever noticed that when you meet a new person, potential friend, that we will start off asking what they DO?
We immediate label them; entrepreneur, stay at home parent, garbage collector, plumber, angel goddess, etc.
That label stays and if we don't like what we hear either through fear or judgment (also fear) we look for an escape route. 'They are not our peeps!'
How often have you called some other driver an idiot (or worse)? True, they may not be driving consciously, but perhaps they just got bad news and are rushing to a loved ones side. Perhaps a relative is going into labor. Perhaps...
We've all done it, don't lie. We've all experienced it. I remember a neighborhood gathering a few years back that included a buffet dinner and a chance for the entire neighborhood to gather - they ALL came! As a couple sat down next to me on the couch, they asked the most popular question, 'What do you do?'
Another friend started chuckling and said, 'I LOVE to watch folks faces when you tell them.' I rolled my eyes and shared; very briefly.
They looked at each other and could not leave the couch fast enough.
It's gotten to the extreme lately; social media is a 'safe place' to body shame or shame another that is not of your ilk. THAT'S shameful... Not bothering to know of another's history, what gets THEM juiced up, how do they BE (vs. DOing) before throwing those judgment rocks.
Here's a new challenge for you:
Initially, just notice how often you label folks; fat, slovenly, gorgeous, nerdy, etc. I just finished reading a auto-biography of sorts written by Marilyn Monroe. My Story. It takes this blog post (which ironically I've been playing with for over one month) and succinctly shares how she was labeled from her perspective and not really given the chance to BE. Once you notice how often society labels and then bring it down on how often you label, you just may be in for an awakening.
No judgment - REALLY! It is what it is. However, now BEing a bit more enlightened, how can you switch it up? May I suggest you chat with Zadkiel. He will help to clear the kaka of labels so you may see the truth.
New Moon Amplified with Lunar Eclipse...what it means for you February 24 2017 2 Comments
This Sunday, February 26, 2017, we have another whammy event:
New Moon combined with a Solar Eclipse.
You may say 'SHAZAM' now.
Many of you are already feeling the energy build; perhaps you have felt a web or veil covering your eyes. This is due to the time of year that this particular New Moon is in; all very watery energy; Pisces. All intuitive powers are becoming more heightened. Many of my clients have reached out with thoughts that lend to 'am I going crazy?' or 'what just happened?' Gifts that you had as a child and shoved away due to being 'not normal' are now resurfacing and you are better able to connect.
Those of you that can have a tendency to dull the edges with outside influences (alcohol as an example) may feel the pull to do so again. Stand Strong Chatterer! It isn't a test truly, but if your gifts are being heightened, YOU are ready. No longer does the need to dull them exist. You have a beautiful gift and one that is meant to be shared.
For those of you that are empathic, the same holds true. Be sure you are doing daily self care acts to build and strengthen your resolve. Make your home a sacred space. Do a space clearing to rid of the old and allow the magnificent new in. Not sure what to do? I can help energetically and is a service I can explain more fully upon inquiring.
No matter what camp, or any camp you feel drawn to, know that ALL is heightened right now, including your ability to manifest like a Manifesting Machine. Here's an idea, instead of focusing on 'the job', 'the house', 'the client', 'the winning lottery ticket' etc. Focus on HOW you will feel. Step into the revelry. Step into the joy. Step into the empowerment of HOW you feel when these events happen. You'll know you are there when you get those beautiful 'angel tears' (eyes becoming watery at the edges as a way to confirm the pureness of the energy you are in).
By focusing on the HOW part of HOW you will feel, you are allowing 'this or something better' to flow to you at greater speed. All only know what they know. It's why it's called the unknown. By allowing the unknown to step forward, it can be more glorious than you could possibly expect.
This is why I've been badgering so many of you to do your Acts of Self Love daily. Helping you to boost your inner juices, your inner vibe, your inner stirrings from the soul. When this is more full, you are better to step into what is truly desired vs. what you think you desire.
It's for more candle work... I HIGHLY recommend (no more joking here) Auriel and/or Haniel's candle for this event... I know, I know... time is of the essence and will you get it in time? No you will not get it prior to Sunday (unless you are seeing us in Raleigh at the BMSE show this weekend), but you shall for next week. Sit with your FEELINGS as you hold the candle and light 'er up! There is a bit more to it, but suffice it to say, this starts you on your journey.
The veil IS lifting Chatterers, time to step into your power and divinity.
Tom Brady February 17 2017
What a shift, an Angel Goddess chatting football? Kinda sorta
Thanks to my Honey, I got an article about the Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady, with the headline:
I'm Not Going to Give Away My Power
The article goes on about empowerment and allowing others, or not, to take yours.
"I don't want to give my power away to other people by letting my own emotions be subjected to what their thoughts or opinions are. If someone calls me something, that's their problem. It's not my problem. I'm not going to give away my power."
On the flip side of that scenario:
"You start giving your power away to other people, it's a tough life."
'Nuf said? If you have been with me for a bit, I've used words and phrases very similar to this. I encourage you to be YOU. Fly that Freak Flag HIGH! Remember, we are ALL human and therefore gloriously imperfect. All attack life from a different perspective as a result of life experiences. When others call us names, it most typically is through jealousy, insecurity and certainly fear. Unfortunately I've had my share and I'm sure you have had as well. That's just part of our human adventure. Learning to BE.
Haven't we all succumbed to what other's thought of us? Especially from those we held in high regard? Especially when those thoughts may have given us permission to not go after our very dreams because deep down we were a bit afraid ourselves? Things like, 'how are you going to make money doing that?' or the classic as it pertains to me, 'You chat with angels? (silence) Oh my look at the time, gotta run. Nice chatting with you.' While not derogatory, it certainly isn't an empowering statement and gave me permission for many a year to stay hidden.
We all have fallen prey to allowing other's thoughts to dictate what we do or don't do. I mean it took me YEARS to come out of the closet and proudly state what I do and don't care much what others think about it any more. Why? Because I LOVE what I do; working with clients, creating and all through the help of The Gang.
On the other hand, have you ever had an AHA Moment and not allowed those words to take hold? You kinda got tired of hiding and being submissive? You kinda got fed up with doing what's expected and being put in a box to make others comfortable. You kinda knew it wasn't real.
You quietly or loudly said ENOUGH! At that moment, you stood taller and did what needed to be done for you with greater conviction. You took that first step no matter how scary it felt. You started to share with others your dream. The circle may have been small at the onset, but grew as your inner circle said, 'It's about time!' Didn't you feel all the better for it afterwards? Didn't your smile expand ten-fold.
Of course it did. That is just one reminder of a time gone by when you stood in your power. It's time for the Big Stand In Your Power Moment.
NOW is that time more than ever. NOW is the time to FLY high. NOW is the time for you to SHINE. NOW is the time for you to BE YOU. It's a BIG deal to dance your dance. A very big deal, but it's time Chatterer. Why the urgency? Well truth be told, we're not getting any younger. Do you wish to live life longer at being unhappy or happy?
I'll choose happy every single time.
Why not chat with Archangel Uriel, The Angel of Safety. He will help to shine a variety of ways you can step more firmly into your power with greater conviction and joy. Also use the Askfirmation courtesy of him:
Why is it safe for me to be me?
and remember to allow The Gang to answer you in magical and yet profound ways. This is just one of many steps that you will take to reclaim YOU.
Welcome Home to you.

Are you...? February 16 2017
The angels have nudged me to chat about empathy. What I have come to understand is that ALL are sensitive, but not all are empathic. Webster defines empathy as:
the ability to understand and share the feelings of another
As with most things, there are various levels of being empathic. There are those that typically feel those only close to them. Then the other side of the spectrum are those that can feel the impending earthquake as it starts to rev up. A very wide range indeed.
Below are some more common traits of an empathic person. See if they resonate with you:
- You get labeled overly sensitive
- You cry easily - don't let anyone drop a hat near you!
- You can be lethargic because you get overwhelmed
- You don't care to be in large crowds
- The Bullshit Monitor? Sky high; you know when folks are lying
These of course are just a few of the symptoms. Perhaps now you may have a better understanding of yourself and those around you. It most certainly is not a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card because you are empathic. That would be akin to saying my family has always been fat, so give me that Twinkie.
You can use this knowledge to become empowered. You can use this knowledge as a secret power weapon in understanding others. By being empathic, you actually do know where they are coming from! This helps greatly no matter what you do for a living because you are listening and taking cues from them.
If you are in the woo-woo industry like me, it makes you even better because you can connect more deeply with your clients. By understanding them more purely, you can better tap into what can assist them on any given day. Beware however that you don't fall so much into their energy that you cannot discern a viable tool or tidbit to help them!
Chat with Big Mike, you know Archangel Michael, to help keep at bay unwanted energies. With the use of his mighty sword, more kaka can be cut back allowing you to stand more confidently in your power and not get downtrodden by those around you. Plus your thinking will be more clear and you will know if it's 'you' or the energy around you contributing to your current energy levels.
The benefit of being an empath is that it helps you to LIVE life more fully. You laugh more. You cry more. How dare folks tell you that you are too sensitive, that's just not sensitive! Being an empath and being labeled as one is not something to hide by any means. It is something to incorporate so it is part of your daily existence. After all, it is YOU. Why would you hide it? Do you hide your smile? Do you hide from sharing your wisdom? Do you ... well you get my drift.
Don't be embarrassed to say 'no' if you aren't feeling up to snuff. Because when you do say 'yes' you can mean it with a full heart. I have declined many a social outing simply because the energy felt off.
By gauging your energy level on any given day you better know what you can tackle with greater velocity and focus. I often drive my Honey nuts by seemingly to allow things to lag until I feel good and ready. Once it is time, it gets done in record speed and with great clarity. He just shakes his head, but I know better than he does... after all, I am empathic.
The Day of Love February 14 2017
Valentines Day is one of those 'funny' little, not so little holidays. Folks scramble to get cards to express tokens of love. Purchase gifts, flowers and so much more! Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE getting gifts; flowers, cards and even the obligatory box of chocolate. In fact, we're going out tonight for dinner - while not a rare event, it is rather rare on the holiday itself. In fact, part duex - we got engaged on this very day - MANY years ago. So yes, we love this holiday, but carry its message year round as best we can.
I did a bit of research on the history of this Day of Love. I did know it originated as a Feast Day for some saint called Valentines or Valentinus. What I did not know, until a few short moments ago was St. Valentinus was imprisoned for performing weddings and administering to Christians. While imprisoned, he healed the daughter of one of his jailers and just before he was executed, sent her a card signed 'Your Valentine'. Chaucer sealed the deal in the 14th Century by focusing it more on romantic love. The cards that were sent at that time? They were called Valentines. Well there ya go... it's all about love baby!
Fast forward to modern times....
Why is so much emphasis put on this one particular day to express love? Why don't more take advantage of the other 364 days of the year to do so? Why has this holiday survived centuries?
We love LOVE. We all wish to be loved. We crave it. We yearn for it. So much so that we, over time, can morph into being someone else in the hopes that somebody will love us. Please stop trying to morph. BE you. Sure get dressed up for dates. Put your best foot forward. Smile, laugh and more. but BE you.
When you are YOU, the world and universe recognize this. When you are YOU, you begin to feel more comfortable literally in your skin and don't go after some new craze to make you more handsome or prettier or both. When you are YOU, you walk more confidently. When you are YOU, your smile is magnetic. Folks take you more seriously. They lean in to hear what you have to say. Yelling from the rooftops of who you are is a thing of the past. You wear clothes that suit you and your dynamic personality.
Why? Because you are on the journey of loving yourself deeply, profoundly, purely.
Here's a little secret I've learned and am certainly still expanding upon; when you love yourself, it matters less what others think of you, for the friends you have are true friends. When you love yourself more, you take life less seriously and have more fun. When you love yourself more, it's more than A-Ok to laugh at yourself for you know you're not perfect. When you love yourself more, others love you right back.
Continue on your Daily Acts of Self Love under the guidance of Archangel Chamuel. Let me know how you are faring. Some of the feedback I've gotten lately is that folks are more emotional. That's not surprising, you are opening the gift that you've kept hidden for much too long. The gift known as you.
Here's to LOVE!
Time to take a breath! February 11 2017 1 Comment
Stress is part of daily living these days. It's become such a natural fact, a way of life that one doesn't quite know what to do with themselves when an opportunity of down time occurs. All this stress eventually leads to more stress and to one hyperventilating.
When one hyperventilates, shoulders tighten, headaches ensue, sleep patterns are erratic and eating is frequently something that one does on the run. None of this is beneficial to mind, body or soul.
Why do these symptoms happen? Simply put the body is not getting the oxygen it needs to operate at its optimum. Oxygen is only being sent to the upper portions of the lungs. If that's the case, and it is, of course the body tightens up! Nothing is providing it with what it needs... oxygen!
This post is a continuation of the campaign I've started with all of you - Daily Acts of Self Love. It's been pure JOY reading what ya'll are doing daily for YOU. If you haven't done so, come join us in the Facebook group! and chat away with some AHmazing Chatterers.
I digress, but they are seriously that great.
Haniel offered this simply, but powerful exercise to me years ago and it's one I've passed on to clients and our group members for quite a while. Here goes:
- Call on Big Mike for some extra angelic protection
- Close your eyes
- Place your hands over your heart
- Feel your heart's cadence; feel its joy, feel its love
- Inhale for four slow counts
- Hold for four counts
- Exhale for four slow counts
- Repeat at least for ten cycles
By doing this daily, you will begin to feel more alive. You will begin to be more focused. You will begin to be present. You will begin to simply BE.
Here's to another step BEing added that allows you to shine!
The Full Moon = YOWSER! February 08 2017 1 Comment
The full moon that we are fast approaching on February 10, 2017 is also called a Snow Moon. It's not a hard leap of understanding to figure out why it's called a Snow Moon; we, in the Northern Hemisphere, get the most snow at this time. However, it is often called the Hunger Moon due to low or non-existent food supplies at this time of year, historically.
While, luckily most don't go hungry especially at this time of year, there is a hunger energy amongst us now. We are hungry for peace, unity and of course love.
It is NO coincidence that I've pushed, prodded and wing slapped you into doing Daily Acts of Self Love now. This helps to support the energy that is being ushered in with this full moon and the crap it is churning up for many. Why so much power now? This gorgeous moon also marks the first Lunar Eclipse of the year. It is indeed Power-Punched to the nth degree.
Just this week I've been reading and hearing from many Chatterers across the world and bottom line? They're wiped out, exhausted and being pushed beyond their limits. Remember what I mentioned a few times in previous posts; The Shadow Has Emerged and it ain't always pretty.
It's time for respect. Respect for all certainly, but respect for self first and foremost. Respect is a form of love. Think about it, when you respect yourself more and more, you may have clearer boundaries of what is acceptable and non-acceptable AND stick to it. You are no longer easily swayed by other's thoughts of worldly or not so worldly events and most important what they may think of you.
Remember, Pobody is Nerfect (taken from one of our daughter's favorite childhood books by the same title). Everybody has foibles. Everybody has greatness. Let's focus on the Beauty and Love for a change and start within ourselves.
Take the energy of this gorgeous moon. Harness this energy. It's not too late to do your own candle ceremony and I HIGHLY recommend the Love Central Candle. Central the LOVE around you. Use that melted wax as a lotion; place over your feet especially the soles and the energy will enter from the ground floor and work its way up. Rub some over your heart chakra. Drink in its energy, its essence. Allow LOVE to permeate. Chat with Chamuel for addition ideas.
It's through loving self first that darkness fails and fails big time. Remember, within the softness of love lies great power.
Not to be left out, Schroeder INSISTS on some lovin' while I write... xoxo
The Angels have the last word... February 06 2017 2 Comments
It's a GLORIOUS day here mid 60s and it's the beginning of February! What 'bright' groundhog said we're getting six more weeks of winter? Me thinks, or hopes at least, he's WRONG.
It's scheduled to rain tomorrow and Gabi and I needed to get out. Off we went into the woods to discover new trails and be adventurous. I called it 'Getting Lost In the Woods'... how right that ultimately was!
I decided to do some catching up with family.
Called mom... no answer
Called my sis...no answer
Called a good friend...no answer
Called one of my younguns...no answer
What gives?! Sandalphon quickly jumped in to tell me that today was for exploring and observing. One simply could not observe if 'one was chatting on the phone'
Well okay then...I guess.
Off we ventured, onward towards the river. We (more likely I was DIRECTED) to take a certain path; down to the biggish stream, cross (thankfully I have waterproof shoes) and to the left. VERY specific Sandalphon, VERY specific... It's a beautiful day and off Gabi and I went. She cavorted briefly with a new friend in the water and her friend's owners were in shock that Gabi is a very young eight years old. We quickly parted ways and did not see another soul for another two hours.
We hugged the river as you can see and then the path headed right. Okay I thought, we're heading back towards the main area.
Deeper and deeper into the woods the path took us. Only hearing the crunching of my feet and Gabi playing in the brush. Hark, do I hear children? We must be getting close!
Not only did their voices disappear, we heard nothing again for the longest time. It was a prime time to chat away with The Gang. Chat we did... where I wish to be, how are they orchestrating it all; support, new folks, etc. How am I to fulfill my mission, etc. It WAS quite the talk let me tell you.
As my handy dandy fit bit buzzed and congratulated me on taking 10,000 steps, we still had no end in sight. I knew Gabi was getting a bit weary (as was I). Within moments, VIOLA! Water! In she went and SMILED. Smiled I tell you! As I was figuring out how to get to the other side, for it looked vaguely familiar, I spied the rope bridge. The Rope Bridge! Yes, it really became that important and deserved to be capitalized for I knew where it was!
As we finally treaded on trails we knew and headed towards home, The Gang chuckled.
"See, we are never far. As your walks, trips, segues may seem off the beaten track, we always take care of you and set you straight. You will always be heading towards your goals, no matter what."
WOW. That's all I need to say....
Sometimes you just gotta... February 02 2017
As an Angel Goddess-preneur, it's often a one woman goddess show. YES, I have loads of folks helping in ALL sorts of ways, so this is in no way discounting their immense love, support and physical help. I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself.
The angels and I have a pact; guess it's the word of the week, and there is a list that is ginormously long of things I wish to do. I really won't bore you with all of those, but suffice it to say I keep myself pretty darn busy. I'll repeat; I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself and I'm usually the Chief Whip Cracker reminding me of what needs to get done like yesterday.
So today, I protested. Yes indeed I did. I broke my routine...kinda.
I still did The Dailies... the channeled messages so many of you look forward to (if you don't know what I'm chatting about, come find me on Facebook), had my morning cappuccino and the routine broke when I took a shower immediately following! Yes, this may be TMI, but I often get so caught up in writing, walking Gabi, etc. showers don't happen until later in the day.
I broke the routine and did errands! Heresy I tell you! Errands! You know one really needs to get out more often when errands are exciting! ;) Errand running I did with Gabi accompanying me as my trusty co-pilot. We arrived back home and decided I'm making one of my husband's favorite dinners tonight... SHHHH... roasted chicken, homemade cranberry sauce and homemade stuffing. He will be giddy.
After that, I still wanted to rebel. Off Gabi and I go on our walk and we tried a new path; going deep into the woods.
Gabi ventured further off trail than ever. She went swamping:
We laughed. Okay I laughed, she grinned:
We walked over five miles today and came home rejuvenated! I had set my intention with Sandalphon (Angel of Grounding) before we left home to better understand a new section he wished included in the Authorization Course for students. At best it had become a Hair Hurting Experience, but as we were out, he offered insights in ways that I finally 'got it'.
So sometimes, you just gotta go on a flyer, break your routines and have a bit of fun when it's not scheduled. My Act of Self Love today is complete. What did you do for you?
Let's make a pact.... February 01 2017 2 Comments
Today is February 1 - This month we have pretty much decided to dedicate it to LOVE and it is evident in a variety of ways:
- Heart-shaped boxes filled with yummy chocolates
- St. Valentines Day
- More couples profess their love in February and get engaged (including yours truly)
- and so on
Hearts are everywhere! In fact, we went out to brunch with my sis and her honey just last weekend and I've never seen a restaurant so decked out for Valentines Day. Hearts were everywhere! From the ceilings, the windows and mirrors. It was very beautiful, but WOW!
I digress, which is fairly easy for me to do at times.
Today, being February 1 and The Month of Love...let's make a pact, you and I.
Let's focus on ourselves! Yes, you read correctly. Focus on SELF first. I've been chatting LOADS with Chamuel lately; you know, The Angel of Self Love. She constantly reminds me to take it easy with a variety of ideas; baths, naps, walks with Gabi, bed earlier (yet to accomplish that one) and reading a book - just for the fun of it. Why?
Because loving yourself first isn't selfish, it's imperative!
Read that again. It IS imperative. Why? Because as you refuel your body, mind and soul, you become more energized. When you are more energized, you have more to give. Play with me for a moment, have you ever notice how many more 'idiots' there are in the world when you are tired? Me too. They aren't idiots at all, and you know this deep down. You, darling, are what is called overtired, tapped out and running on fumes. There simply isn't enough coffee in the world to keep you going and staying in your happy place.
So let's make a pact. Every. single. day. in the month of February you do something for YOU. The list is as long as it is varied. Here are some ideas and I would LOVE to hear of some of yours.
- Bubble Bath
- Say NO and stick to it
- Say YES with glee and mean it
- Hug someone for 30 seconds or longer ~ HEART TO HEART
- Sit with some rose quartz crystals - heart shaped of course ;)
- Place your hands over your heart and say, "I Love You."
- and _________________________ you fill in the blanks
Here's to Self Love! Remember:
Mindfulness ... what is YOUR practice? January 30 2017 1 Comment
As we continue to head in a seemingly downward spiral, it is easy to get off track and fall headfirst into whatever drama is being presented to you whether it is global, social or private.
It's easy to go to bed with a headache or feelings of frustration or fear.
I'm not saying ignore what is being presented. What we (the angels and I) are suggesting is that you take a literal step back and practice mindfulness. By being more mindful, extraordinary events can take place.
By being mindful, you are aware of the world around you and that also means aware of the solutions that may be hidden from you if you are not practicing mindfulness. When one is present, one can see all, but does not 'own' it as theirs. THIS little switch can make all the difference in the world; your world.
How to practice mindfulness? This does not mean you begin to emulate the Dalai Lama and meditate for hours on end. As an example, I've recently re-discovered yoga. I'm going three times a week and was only able to attend once last week; my inner equilibrium missed it terribly and it affected my entire being. By taking yoga off the mat, my patience and tolerance for ALL expands. My love for ALL expands. There are many yoga modalities. If this intrigues you, find one that suits your schedule, your energy and your physicality.
Be sure you are eating properly for YOU. If you've been with me for a bit, you know I don't promote any one particular food lifestyle. Some folks needs meat. Some folks don't. It's that simple. However, we can all agree that consuming a container of Ben & Jerry's ice cream is not the best course of empowering action. Right? Ask each food how it benefits you. Bless the food each time you eat. A simple thank you goes a long way.
Lighting a candle with intention helps to shift the energy of any space. Of course I prefer my candles. They are already infused with angelic energies, but if you don't have any on hand, get a new candle and as you hold it, put energies of one emotion in. Perhaps love. Perhaps transmutation. Perhaps health. Perhaps...
Daily meditating is of course high on the list. Your meditation practice need not be hours. But rather 15 minutes or so will get you started living life with greater clarity, love, joy and the ability to rise above the fray.
Spending time with like-minded souls is lovely... ONLY IF it does feed the Fear Monster. That only exacerbates the situation and will have you feeling more drained and confused quicker than you can turn around.
What other ways do you already practice mindfulness?
What other ways have intrigued you?
Share below in the comments. I would love to hear from you.
What are YOUR desires? January 27 2017
Apparently the angels have me on a roll and it's time, even for me, to step up and out more visibly and frequently; not just at shows.
This is one of the vehicles I shall be much more active in this year.
Today's blog post is about our first New Moon in 2017. While the year has just begun, what a beginning, eh? There indeed is much turbulence in the world at this moment and many are feeling at a loss for words, let alone actions at this moment.
Take advantage of today's New Moon. The spectacular energy that is heralding in with this moon brings with it a sense of union, going for the gold, BEcoming more you. This IS the perfect time to make your Vision Board. If you haven't already done one for 2017, NOW is the time. Yes, you can do this over the weekend, as the cycle of moon while strongest tonight, stays more or less in this energy for the next two nights. This is a perfect weekend activity!
Now is the time to evaluate relationships. Not just the 'old' ones (ironically going to visit a dear 'old' friend today recovering from hip surgery) but to celebrate new ones. Your strongest relationship is of course with yourself. Have you been lying to yourself in hopes of seeing a different outcome? Are you letting yourself stay stagnant because the unknown is a bit more unsettling for your tastes? Remember, Rome certainly wasn't built in a day. Reclaiming YOU may take a while. It's one of the reasons I'm here; offering private sessions. (shameless reminder plug here).
Take stock of all that is affecting you at the moment. Some clients have completely dis-engaged from social media for a bit to allow themselves to recoup, rejuvenate and recharge. Some have picked up a great inspirational book. Some have gathered closer to friends for camaraderie. Some are vesting more in Acts of Self Love; daily walks, yoga, energy treatments and one of my favorites; bubble baths. Do what is best for you; nobody has walked in your shoes. Nobody really knows how stuff affects you. YOU is what matters. YOU.
Harness in today's energy. Project out where you wish to be in one year. Set your intentions. Then release the 'hows'. Ask the angels, specifically Auriel (The Moon Angel) t illuminate the correct path for you at this moment in time.
Remember, all is as it 'should' be at THIS moment. The next? Up to you.
The Color of Love January 26 2017
I was out with Gabi today, you know my living muppet yogi dog, and a thought popped in my head as we passed yet another potential fan club member for Gabi. Are dogs really color blind? Turns out they are NOT (I did a tiny bit of research on our arrival home). They DO see a variety of colors, but akin to a person who is red-green color blind. Simply put dogs see orange, yellow, and green as yellow. Blue-green is seen as white and red looks as though it is brownish-black. That is starting to make my hair hurt, but bottom line, they see a lot more than gray tones.
I asked because, you see, Gabi LOVES everybody. Truly. I've never seen her growl at a person. Unless of course they are walking by and she's not out there to greet them. But I digress...
On every walk, she perks up the minute she see another human. Her tail wags. She begins to prance. She actually smiles in anticipation. She eagerly waits for the command from me or a greeting from them to perform her official hello which also includes massive leaning and if you're really lucky a slobbery kiss. She actually gets somewhat miffed when a person doesn't invite her over or worse yet; she is ignored.
It doesn't matter how old or how young. Although she does have a distinct fondness for children. It doesn't matter if they are purple, black, polka-dotted, yellow, white or striped. She truly adores and LOVES everyone.
What a novel idea. Love for what it is. Love no matter what. Love is not just skin deep. Love is real.
We could all learn something from that magical fur angel girl known as Gabi.
What the world needs now... January 24 2017
This is so not a political post, but of course many, if not all of you will relate.
Yes, the world is seemingly wonky right now.
Yes, the world is very confusing right now.
Yes, the world can be quite scary right now.
Wish it to go away? Well, I do too, but it's not going until we all change. The change starts within. Remember my post immediately following the election? The Shadow has emerged? Well the shadow is still here and not going anywhere until all can look at themselves in the mirror and LOVE that person looking back at them.
The shadow is a tricky little fella; it is brilliant at churning up the unsavory. It is brilliant at pointing out the elephant in the room. It is brilliant at pointing out the lack. The shadow? All it truly desires is recognition and great love.
Of course it can be difficult to love that unsavory stuff. Remember, you ARE human and therefore perfectly imperfect.
That perfectly imperfect 'crap' is stuff we shoulda coulda woulda done differently in our personal past. ALL can relate to this. But if it weren't for that one lesson, we wouldn't be where we are today; growing, learning, and yes LOVING better.
Loving without conditions. Getting easier at saying 'I Love You' without constraints. For Love is real. Love is powerful. Love is healing. If your shadow has emerged, and it has, so have millions of others.
We ARE at a crossroads to slip back into oblivion or to step forward and claim LOVE as the motivator. What do you chose? IF you chose LOVE, and I hope you do, make a pact with yourself to spend quiet time daily in the essence of LOVE.
Spend time daily to allow you to feel LOVE. Spend time daily to send LOVE out to ALL. You certainly may focus on one area of the world, or a person. Each day will differ from the next, but if every single person sends out LOVE that is powerful.
It reclaiming LOVE as your motivator, you become more empowered. You are more courageous. The Dalai Lama says being courageous is looking fear in the eye and still moving forward. Each person has various levels of courage. As you reclaim LOVE of self, you become bolder, stronger and lighter. Chat with Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love. You will learn new acts of love to direct towards not only yourself but others on a daily basis. Sometimes all you must do is listen.
Can you commit to doing this for yourself daily?
I know I am.
PEACE January 19 2017
There's an old song,
Let there be peace on Earth.... and let it begin with me
With so much going on universally at the moment, upheaval, angst, and dare I say it, fear... it can be easy to fall prey to that energy and unintentionally contribute to it all. This of course makes matters worse, especially for you and you are my main concern.
If you are not meditating daily, now is the perfect time to do so. I've been chatting with the angels - I know what a surprise and I got a bit of a wing slap myself. While I do meditate daily while Gabi and I go for walks, I realize it isn't as powerful as sitting or laying down to meditate. Upon making a conscious decision to meditate daily, it is amazing how much more energy I have. How deeper and more restorative sleep is. Focus isn't a thing to pine away for, it happens!
The first day I laid upon the client treatment table, one of our cats, Schroeder, joined me the entire time. He snuggled deep into my side and demanded I put my arm around him. This may not sound very significant to most of you, or any of you for that matter, but Schroeder is not known for cuddling let alone snuggling. He stayed with me the entire 40 minutes!
He knew this was important. He knew that as long as he stayed with me, I would stay put (funny how cats have that power over us) and this time allowed The Gang to work on me. They cleared energy that had been unwillingly weighing me down. They cleared my mind processes to allow me to plow through the remaining portion of the manuscript so I can now pass it on to the publishing company. One of the best parts? That night I slept for over 5.5 hours! That is the first time in many, many, many weeks.
Begin meditating. We all have a comfort time zone that we allow ourselves to sit still. When that buzzer internally dings, give yourself another few minutes. In those moments magic begins to happen. You relax, insights come forward and are acknowledged and great healing commences.
Is this being selfish? Of course it is! You are taking time out of your very busy day just for you. YOU are important. YOU deserve to be replenished. YOU deserve the quiet and the peace that comes from meditating.
Remember what Gabi's name stands for:
Grace Always Begins Inside
It starts with you.
Use this Askfirmation™:
Why am I so filled with peace?
and remember to allow the angels to surprise you with answers.
Wishing you days that are filled with magic and great peace and love.
Times? They ARE achangin' January 18 2017 2 Comments
Just scroll through any social media site; Facebook specifically and so many folks are sick! I mean bed ridden sick.
While this is fairly common during the winter months, this time it is also a strong indicator of how much the energy has shifted. We are undergoing a BIG shift that is slowly anchoring into our being.
Believe it or not we have entered the Fifth Dimension.
Yes, we have officially entered a new way of being. Our thoughts are playing an even bigger role in what manifests in our personal, social and business lives. Living in fear? you will most definitely become sick and life stagnant.
Living with a bit more optimism? Life will continue its grand march in Utopia as you desire and envision it.
However, let's not kid ourselves, it is crazy scary out there! It is truly the wild unknown. The Wild West seems like a walk in the park compared to what all of us are undergoing now.
This is not the time to go home and pull the covers over your head in hopes that it will sort itself out and all will be fine. All WILL be fine, but you are needed.
You are needed to be present.
You are needed to be conscious
You are needed to fly your personal Freak Flag HIGH
You are needed to love yourself so you may love others
You are needed
Don't run and hide. Stand tall. If you are not a member of our sacred space on Facebook, please join us at Angel Chatter. It is filled with amazing, really amazing people who are loving, joy-filled, intelligent and off the charts supportive of all the other Chatterers.

Happy New Year Chatterers!
With 2016 still fresh in many minds of the tumultuous times, changing times, not sure which way to turn times...It is indeed time to start anew, fresh and create life as YOU wish.
Why this sense of 'urgency' now? Well, it's really not news if you have been following me and subscribing to the monthly newsletter, but NOW is pretty much the time to set the stage for the remainder of your life.
Want to start a new career? Look into it, even if it means going back to school. I know a young man (they get younger as I get older) that switched careers in his thirties and while he may be starting 'over', he couldn't be happier. There is always a way; if you wish it to manifest enough. Will it take time? Perhaps. Just don't let the 'if onlys' get you... you know... if only I had more money to go back to school (there are scholarships for that), if only I had more time (you can find the time), if only I had more support. (join our sacred group on Facebook and you will receive plenty of support there)
Why now? The numbers, 2017 add up to the number 10. This beautiful number represents completion with the '0' and new beginnings with the '1'. In other words, as the past year came into its completion (you may now breathe a huge sigh of relief), it is time to start fresh.
Even if that means you reinvent yourself. Isn't that evolving is all about? Not necessarily reinventing one's self, but coming back to your truest self. It is more imperative than ever to listen to the whisperings of your heart and follow its lead. It is time to stop listening to the dramas that society creates through the fear that ego is spoon feeding all. It is time to take that blessed breath, close your eyes and use this Askfirmation:
Why is it so easy for me to live the life of my dreams?
Then allow the angels to answer and show you how to get there. It's up to you to take that first step and the one after that and the one after that. It is time to break the chains that have held you back, whether they be those good intentions that folks reason with you on the whys you shouldn't do something or those ahem, blessed 'if onlys'. I speak from experience so listen carefully:
IF something doesn't get you juiced up and you are frustrated. LOOK INTO SOMETHING NEW NOW! Why? Because the angels hear your frustration and IF you don't take that step, no matter how small that step may be, they will end it for you. They only wish what is best for you and and will make 'it' end whether it is a job, living situation, relationship, etc. For that is what you ultimately yearn for. Remember, their only mission in your life is to help you live life on your terms. IF you are conforming to others and not happy in the process, they listen and heed your energy. While you may not cognitively concur that you asked for something to end, trust me that in a year's time you will be grateful it did; only IF you don't wallow (it's okay for a day or two) but then take those steps to move forward.
Here are some ways to help keep you focused with your soul's energy:
* Spend time in meditation.
* Spend time in automatic writing. You may not get discernible answers immediately, but with practice you shall.
* Take a candle, of course I prefer one of mine ;), but no matter, take an unused candle. Wrap your hands around it and set your intention. AS BIG AS YOU DESIRE. Light it daily until gone. By focusing on your intentions daily, you are gently nudged to keep going. You may have chance meetings. You may have a call from a dear friend who has the answer. You may...
This IS your year to shine brighter than ever. The world needs you as you, not me. Not your great Aunt Gertrude, not even Buddha. YOU and only YOU.
I wish you success beyond your imagination.
I wish you love that curls your toes and lights up the sky.
I wish you happiness that is contagious.
I wish this and much more, now and always.
The Newest of Beginnings December 29 2016
Yesterday, December 28, 2016, marked the last new moon of this year. It falls under the zodiac sign of Capricorn.
This brilliant new moon holds within it some of the highest octane energies. Many are sharing feelings of itchiness (literally and the proverbial 'I'm itching to go do something/anything!). Feelings of being antsy. Feelings of revving up before the start of a race. While we know life is not a race by any means, it is that sense that something BIG and magical is about to unfold.
You're right. It is.
This last moon, as I mentioned, falls under the auspices of Capricorn's energy. What a PERFECT time to write down your ambitions, no matter how lofty they may seem. What a perfect time to list your goals for the coming year and beyond. What a perfect time to dream and dream BIG. We'll be exploring the energy of the moon more each month as it hits certain zeniths. As I'm learning (yes the everlasting student) and chatting with Auriel and the rest of The Gang, each moon cycle while repetitive, hold a variety of particular energies and when we harness them more consciously we can jump start our life in magical and angelic ways.
While I zonked out last night and did not do any moon ritual, keep in mind the energy of any moon phase is strongest at that night, but holds its energies for three days prior and after the event. So I shall write my list today and set it aglow in our fire pit. This will set my intentions firmly and allow the angels to intervene to guide and most likely wing slap me to do a new project and how to let it unfold.
You see, 2017 is bringing with it energies of karmic proportions; you reap what you sow. You manifest what you dwell upon. All those things you have been thinking about, dreaming about and stewing about have a great opportunity to manifest in the coming months. As I write this, those blessed angel tears are manifesting as a confirmation of truth of what I write.
There is truth to that old saying; 'Be careful what you wish for' Be every diligent on your thoughts and intentions. IF something feels forced at any level, it simply is not for you.
Remember, all wish love, abundance, health, joy, ease and more. Isn't it time you received all of that on YOUR terms?
Write down that list of desires and dreams. Burn it so it gets released to the angels. Now wait for inspirational ideas of how to achieve exactly what you want and how you want it.
Remember, if still confused, that's why I'm here. I'm here to help via readings and private sessions.
Here's to a magnificent 2017!
The Shadow Has Emerged November 10 2016 1 Comment
With the presidential election still raw in many minds, I sat in quiet contemplation yesterday at various times trying to make 'sense of the madness' that was swirling around me; riots, family calling in tears, confusion at an all time high, well you know what I'm talking about; you are living it.
'What has happened?' is the common question and theme.
The shadow has shown itself. We all have a shadow side and it does harkens to the Robert Louis Stevenson child's poem:
Love November 01 2016
We were at a beautiful expo this past weekend and the common theme hands down amongst my many clients was LOVE. Many yearning to find their soulmate and twin flame. Many are in a relationship but one of them is struggling as the other grows in their brilliance. This theme has continued into my Facebook Group, Angel Chatter and has certainly prompted this blog post.
What does love mean to you?
To me love is pure, bliss filled, non judgmental and being a bit vulnerable. Okay a LOT vulnerable at times. After over 31 years of being married to my honey, apparently there are still aspects within each of us that are still tender and do come out to play periodically. This vulnerability and the ability to respect it as being vulnerable has only made our relationship that much stronger. This part rears its cute little head and is a scream that it requires recognition and as you know, recognition is a form of love.
Love is about seeing the beauty within another and not desiring to change them. Love is holding up the proverbial mirror to them and allow them to see their great gifts in the hopes that they can come out to play permanently. Why? They are loved for who they are, not what they are meant to be become.
Shoot, my honey often says I did a bait and switch for when we were dating and well into our marriage this gift of chatting with the angels was not shared. How could I since I had really forgotten about it? However, my friends that I've had longer than our marriage yelled out 'It's about time!' as this field has always interested me. My gift finally came out to play permanently because my husband only challenges me to be me. He challenges me to be more of me, not somebody else. He thinks I'm beautiful, smart, funny, loving, caring and much more without trying to adapt to make him happy. All this safety wrapped up in a love hug allowed me to step out of the closet. In fact, we had a recent dinner party with some of his colleagues and they were extremely curious in the oh so positive way of what I do!
Love is letting them go to explore, play and grow and not feel threatened. In fact, I remember years ago my honey went to Italy, all by his lonesome for three weeks. Some new friends were truly shocked that I let him go! Seriously? Never gave it a second thought. He needed to this for him and we are blessed that he could go and oh the stories when he returned!
Love is unconditional. There are never conditions that are attached to love. If you find another doing this, it is not love. Let's break that stigma and simply love for the sake of it all.
Love is not dictated by who 'holds the reigns' and controls the other. Love is a partnership. One may carry another and the situation flips. It all eventually evens out to a lovely balance.
Love is being silly and allowing the other to be silly no matter what.
Love is being grumpy and knowing that they will still be there in the morning with a nice cup of tea and hug.
Love is being there. Helping them through (no matter how big it may seem) a fear based situation. Remember, all is a reflection of what is going on within you. Try a bit of ho'oponopono:
For Love is forgiving. Forgiving another and certainly self for acting human once in a while.
Love is Oneness.
Love is YOU.
