The signs we get.... April 20 2017 3 Comments
I was blessed to have three of my grandparents live well into their nineties. Each one of the was incredible in their own right. I loved them all dearly.
As an example, Grandpa would have us out watching the ants play baseball, watching submarine races and keep us enthralled with stories of life in the early times in New York City.
Grandma, his wife, was the spitfire; small but mighty and very cognizant until the very end. She was the cog in the family, always there with great hugs, laughter and tidbits of wisdom, when you were ready to listen.
My other Grandma, Mary, is the one I wish to share about today. The last months of her life were confusing. Without drudging up family drama, nobody is quite sure of her last days other than she had a roof over her head, plenty of food, etc. She was taken care of, but we are also fairly certain there was 'mischief' afoot; that's me being nice about her care giver.
I was her first grandchild and the only for over seven years. We built a bond that was unbreakable that lasted a lifetime and now apparently beyond...
Grandma died many years ago and as with the passing or skipping over of our loved ones, we mourned. We cried. We laughed. We questioned. She skipped over in the month of June and by September, she began leaving signs for us.
The first gift was found in the center of our upstairs hallway. Right smack dab in the center of the hall. The hall we all traversed on a regular basis going to and fro to bed. On the day in question, I was walking from the office to our bedroom and lo and behold there was a very small Mary Medallion (one of the blue ones). I quickly said 'Hi Grandma' and put it in a chest she had given me from Poland to keep it safe.
Second gift; I shared the story with my mom a few months later when she was visiting and went to show her. The Mary Medallion had reproduced! There were now TWO medallions, but this one was the solid silver one in the photo. Before you question, the chest is rather empty with the exception of gifts from her.
Third gift; I have a Kwan Yin statue on my nightstand. Over one year after the second gift, I found a Mary Medallion was now safely nestled in Kwan Yin's hand! This is the second blue one.
Fourth gift; fast forward three or four years. We had just moved into our New Digs. We had been able to put much of the house in order and were now in the Lower Level (aka finished basement) and putting away all things Angel Chatter. My husband and I were chatting away about the house that was quickly becoming our home, our dreams of the future and just general talk. He became very quiet. As I glanced across the room to him, he was looking at something in his hand.
'I just found a Mary Medallion on the rug. It wasn't there before.'
'Did you say HI to Grandma?'
This is the fourth medallion in my hand - the very opaque one. I figure she wished to see our new home and make sure once again all was well in our world.
Fifth gift; Mom has now found one in the middle of their bed AFTER she made it!
You see, our loved ones often visit us. All of us. Sometimes they leave a token of their love; the Mary Medallion as an example. Some leave an aroma in their wake that we associate with them. Some may allow you to feel their presence in the form of a hug, a thought, a gentle breeze or a song. Sometimes we are trying so desperately to hear from them, we inadvertently don't allow these gifts to come forward in our consciousness.
Relax! Allow yourself to receive these messages. They will come in a variety of ways and each one is meant to catch your attention. They are only a whisper away.
Have you had a visit? I would love to hear about it below! You can always chat with Zadkiel to help clear the way a bit better for you to better see, feel, hear, know of their visits.
Guess what? I do NOT smudge! April 11 2017 3 Comments
I do not smudge at all any more. I use to and did for years...until we moved to Baltimore.
Here's the story:
We moved into a 'new' home in the Baltimore area. It was gorgeous. It was nestled in a grove of trees in a very small and homey neighborhood. We were renting, being new to the entire area, we weren't sure where we wished to plop permanently (as you will read, it's a GREAT thing we rented). As a welcome gift, our landlord left us not only a bottle of wine but a rather large smudge stick! Did she know me or what?
Typically, I would have jumped right in to smudge the entire house. The Gang, however, kept me busy doing MANY things; unpacking, getting settled and more. It was months and months before that smudge stick got used.
When I did finally get around to smudging, I followed all the 'rules of engagement':
- Started on the top floor
- Started on the top floor in far left corner
- Worked counter clockwise
- Took my time and lingered when necessary
- Repeated on the next two lower levels (basements count too whether they are finished or not!)
Funny thing happened afterwards. While the house felt GREAT for a day or so, it felt terrible within four days. Yes really terrible.
I let the energy settle and observed.
At that time a 'stray dog' (his term, not ours) came to live with us... a friend of one of our daughters who was very troubled. While his bedroom was in the basement (very nicely furnished by the way), he would report hearing voices and footsteps regularly going past his bedroom door.
Even the cats, Linus and Schroeder, would only go downstairs to use their bathroom and scoot back upstairs as quickly as their cute little bodies would carry them.
I saged again and this time really focused on the basement/lower level.
It got worse. Again. Voices increased, footsteps louder and now it was affecting the entire household. Everyone was getting agitated.
Focusing on anything was next to impossible.
This cycle continued a few more rounds; just had to be sure and up until this adventure, saging had always worked!
Turns out the land was cursed. In fact, if you notice I put the term 'new' in quotes at the top of this post. This is because the first house was built in the 1980s and had burned to the ground. The owner rebuilt it. While is was gorgeous and flowed beautifully, the enery was off. Very off. It was cursed via Native Americans (not sure what tribe, didn't ask). You see, Native Americans hold saging sacred and it enhances their energy and connection to the beyond. So every time I saged, I was literally empowering them!
I saged no more. We left that house within a few months of the AHA and never looked back.
NOW I only use my Sacred Mister, Clearing. This is infused with not only the amethyst crystal, but Archangel Zadkiel's energy which is aligned with the Violet Flame. All transmutative energies. Taking that kaka and putting it back to its original state of purity. Nobody gets empowered in a not so nice way with this baby and ALL feel better! Plug for a product? Sure, but as you hopefully know by now, I believe in the power of each product I create and use them all myself. In fact I'm often their guinea pig!
Please think about how the saging affects you before and afterwards; even a few days or weeks afterwards. Does it still feel yummy? If it does, you are safe. If you feel any of the symptoms above, please discontinue.
As always, I look forward to reading your comments below!
Much love and GREAT clearing!
One never knows... April 07 2017 2 Comments
We left our home yesterday ahead of schedule and started our trek towards Cincinnati for the Victory of Light Expo. Everything was going swimmingly well. The rain clouds had broken and rays of sunshine seemed to lead the way. We were enjoying the easy conversation of playing catch up as we had been both slammed all week with a variety of things. As always, I placed Big Mike around our car:
Archangel Michael to the Right
Archangel Michael to the Left
Archangel Michael to the Front
Archangel Michael to the Back
Archangel Michael Above
Archangel Michael Below
Please protect this car wherever it goes
About 25 minutes into our trek, Honey Guy realizes he forgot his medication.
A quick run down - could he go without it? Ummmm NO. I would be the proverbial wreck all weekend and worse than a bear to honey in monitoring his food intake.
Turn around we did. Him complaining most of the time. :)
Back in the car once more it started to rain. The ride began to feel a bit more gloomy, but we carried on laughing, dozing, listening to an audio book all woven with periodic body break stops.
About three or four hours into our trip, traffic came to a rolling stop. An ambulance went racing by. After a bit of deliberation and an exit glaring at us, we jumped off the highway and took a slight detour that paralleled the highway. NOW I could see what the cause was; an 18-wheeler had knife jacked and its cab was hanging over the side of the highway down a long and steep incline.
We could have been involved in that mess directly had we not forgotten the medication.
I'll take the delay any day of the week, wouldn't you? We arrived safely in Cincy, albeit very tired, but are now taking the morning to rest a bit, write blogs (obviously) and off this afternoon to set up for the show.
Morale of the story? You never know how one seemingly insignificant event can affect the remainder of your life. Allow delays to be an adventure. Allow the scenery, enjoy the ride for you never know what is around the corner.
I look forward to reading some of your Big Mike encounters below!
The first backward dance of Mercury is about to happen; April 9, 2017 and goes until May 3, 2017.
When Mercury goes retrograde it may seem like all hell is breaking loose and we run for cover. If one does that, it becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy then, doesn't it? It really isn't that bad, or certainly doesn't have to be.
Why not be better prepared vs. ignoring it?
Why not acknowledge this inner gift and take advantage of this quiet time to do a bit of soul searching?
That's the gift of Mercury Retrograding. This time it hits in Taurus. While I am far from an astrology expert, I do known Taurus is the bull. The Gang is sharing that because mercury is hitting during this astrological sign, one can become more bull-headed or certainly encounter folks that are being bull headed.
IF this happens, take that literal and proverbial step back. Look at the larger picture. Why is one (including yourself) act this way? Is it out of fear? Is it out not feeling understood? Is it out of not feeling adequate? Is it...? All of these not so nice emotions can surface during a retrograde.
Here are some of the more common hiccups that can occur during a Mercury in Retrograde, no matter your astrological sign:
- Electronics going haywire - best back up your computers
- Travel mishaps - lost tickets, canceled flights, etc.
- Crying jags
To make Mercury and its backward dance more effective for you, keep these tips in mind:
- If possible, do not sign any contracts
- Do not start a new endeavor (for this reason The Angel Chatter Authorization Course will not launch until early May)
- Eat more healthily - this gives you better fuel to handle the hiccups
- Journal - get out those icky thoughts
- Allow your intuition/heart to guide you - tell the ego to go sit in the corner with a lollipop
- Take advantage of the quiet time to do some inner reflecting. Most lifestyles are incredibly busy these days... who has time to BE? Take the time now.
- Meditate. Light one of our sacred Angel Candles to deeper connect with The Gang and yourself
So you see, no need to run for cover! Take advantage of this blessing! Use the Askfirmation:
Why is it so easy to go with the flow?
And remember to allow The Gang to answer for you... NO need to find answers with Askfirmations!
So is it all doom and gloom during a retrograde? Of course not. As with all things, it greatly depends on your interpretation and reaction to any event. IF there are contracts and deals lined up to happen during retrograde, as an example, just be sure to cross those 'T' and dot those 'I'... Read every word on every page. If you don't understand something, ask! Keep asking until you do understand. Viola, no more mis-communication.
I look forward to reading your responses below!
The perfect scenario... April 04 2017
We arrived home late on Sunday after an intense, powerful and loving one day show held about one hour away from home. In a 'perfect' world I take Mondays off after a show, or the day after we arrive home, to rest, regroup and hopefully recharge.
The plans were 'spoiled' this time. You see, my brother was in from Germany on business. As luck would have it, his office is mere minutes away from our home! I was giddy to get to share our new life with him and have him over for dinner. This of course meant cleaning, prepping for dinner which includes yummy dessert things.
He LOVES chocolate, so chocolate brownies it was with a caramel center sprinkled with nuts. It's a multi baking process so while the first round was in the oven I puttered in the kitchen tidying things up. As the second round commenced, I desperately wanted to get in the garden to dig, pull up weeds and plant some flowers I had purchased last week; it helps me to ground and reconnect. I had twenty minutes to do all of this.
Of course I could have taken the easy way out and put the timer on my phone. Oh no, that's too easy! I told The Gang I needed to be back in the house within twenty minutes, flowers planted and all so the brownies wouldn't burn. I left it at that.
NINETEEN minutes to the second four people starting texting me. Bing, Beep, Chime. Bing, Beep, Chime... I caught the time and realized the happy flowers were all safely planted. I went inside just as the oven timer went off; brownies smiling happily from the oven.
You see, it can be that simple; Ask AND Receive. Let go of the concepts that your requests will not be heard. Let go of the control factor and checking the clock. Simply let go and trust. They DO hear every request you make. They DO act upon every request you make; it's up to you to allow them to help you.
Just to show off the brownies... a bit...
and a very tired Angel Goddess and Brownie Lover Jet Lagged Baby Brother...

April's Full Pink Moon and How to Get Ready March 29 2017 2 Comments
How convenient that the first full moon in Spring is in April and known as a Pink Moon! Convenient? Yes indeedy, it's my birthday month and pink is my favorite color.
Enough about me though... how will this moon impact you?
The name “pink moon” is a native name, derived from the early pink blooms of phlox. Other names for the April full moon include egg moon and sprouting grass moon. Will the moon literally look pink? It might in your neck of the woods, but the name comes from the Native Americans and how they could reference the moon to others.
This specific full moon falls within the retrograding of Mercury (April 9 - May 3, 2017). As with most retrogrades, the opportunity to go within is magnified. This will become even more imperative with the full moon that is full of pink self love.
With all this pink and self love energy pouring in, is it any wonder romantic energies are also wrapped up in this moon? It is an ideal time to set up a love altar or if you already have one, clean it up (literally) and amp up its energy so your twin flame can find you more easily.
New to setting up an altar? Not a problem. As with all things, it is best to represent all elements; fire, water, air, earth and wood. Think about it, if you only put in the element of fire, your romance will be quite intense and could burn up quickly!
Your altar is a place of sacredness. It is a place that you place your objects that remind you of love. It can be an end table, top of bookshelf, mantle, dresser, etc. It does not become cluttered with unused notes, pens, etc. as you go about your day. It is a place you visit daily to reflect and feel the universe conspiring with you to manifest your truest loving desires.
Here's a trick question, how many people are involved as a couple?
Two, right? Therefore, you will have TWO of everything you place on your altar. One invites being solo and three... well let's just not go there; it will be inviting ultimately unwanted added folks to your romance.
Here are some ideas that connect to the various elements that you may place on your altar:
- Earth - Crystals! I LOVE (pun soooo intended) two rose quartz hearts for this exercise. No need to limit to just rose quartz. What other stones scream love to you? Remember two of each!
- Air - Feathers. Allowing your love to soar on angel wings!
- Fire - Candles. Since you will be burning these candles regularly, go with the colors you are drawn to. They will reflect your energy of the moment; be sure to look up the color's meaning after you have chosen.
- Water - Aquamarine crystals offer the energies of peace, hope and yes self love. Or perhaps a small fish bowl with two fish that is filled with beautiful stones
- Wood - I love flowers, that is not a secret. You can keep the energy flowing on your sacred altar by having fresh flowers adorning it. The philosophy would be the same for the color of the candles; get the flowers that speak to you now and then look up their meaning. I adore the book, The Victorian Flower Dictionary .
The key is for you to be creative in your altar making. After all, it is your altar and you are attracting your love; not mine. You may also write your love a letter dated five years into the future. Spend some time on this one. Describe your day spent together. How happy you are. How you love it when they look at you when they think you're not observing kind of thing. Expand on your perfect day together; what did you do? How did you act? Where did you go (if any where)? On the night of glorious pink moon, burn up the letter. This is releasing your desires to the angels and putting them to work on your mission.
Also use the Askfirmation:
Why is is so easy for me to live my life with my soulmate?
Chat with The Gang, all of them. There are so many nuances that tap into romantic love, it is difficult to pinpoint one specific one. Still grappling? It just may be time to have a full on session with me. To toot my horn a bit, a client has invited me to their wedding because they like me and I saw them together well over a year before they found each other. Pretty cool, eh?

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.

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.
