What are YOUR Roots? April 30 2018 1 Comment
Gabi and I take regular walks in the woods that I have dubbed Magical Walks. As we prepare to leave home, I pose a question for The Gang (aka the angels) that I wish them to answer while we are out and about. Sometimes I get direct answers. For example while working on the Authorization Course section on Sandalphon and he decided he wished to discuss the kabbalah. Other time
I typically share our adventure with our Facebook Group (if you are not yet a member, you are now lovingly invited to join us in sacred space - Angel Chatter). It finally dawned on me that as I take pictures to later share in our group, that the pictures seem to carry a theme; a message if you will. How's that? I simply appear to be drawn to taking certain kinds of pictures on any given day.
Last week's walk was no different; I asked for clarity as we left home. We entered the woods near our home and I was immediately drawn to the roots of trees. Roots that were exposed. Roots that created beautiful art. Roots that simply chose to BE. I photographed many and are sharing a few here.
What are YOUR Roots?
As this realization finally dawned on me - Magical Walks with Themes... I asked, what do tree roots have to do with anything? How do they help me with the clarity request that I asked.
Sandalphon, The Angel of Grounding, was quick to respond:
Think of the roots as a metaphor.
What is a common theme for you and your business, Angel Chatter?
What do you keep repeating, and approaching in a variety of ways? In other words, what do you keep circling back to?
He then asked the final question:
What do you stand for?
Roots as the Base
He then began a tutorial of sorts.
As most plants grow, they require a strong root system to help support them as they BEcome more powerful, strong and flexible when the wild winds blow. This is pretty universal. True there are some plants that don't require this - air plants for example, don't necessarily require much in order for them to thrive, but that is definitely not the norm.
Humans are much the same. They require strong roots the can enable them to be grounded in their truth while soaring.
Think of a seed. Any seed will do. The seed must be planted in fertile soil in order to germinate and grow, correct? The fertile soil nourishes the seed as it spreads its roots allowing this plant to BEcome what it is meant to be.
Humans are no different. Those seeds can be representative of desires; how one wishes to live life. Fertile soil is the heart. Seeds require nurturing. They can easily fed though Acts of Allowing. BEing proactive in nourishing these seeds; as ideas are conceived, the heart expands, eyes can become watery, the body responds with those beautiful confirmation chills. One can envision those desires to completion, the finished products whether it is living in a new locale and how, to hearing the whisperings of a loved one's words, to see that project in its entirety. We hug those smiles close as we see it birthing. Those smiles is one of the many ways a YES is recorded that says you LOVE this idea and are claiming it.
By saying YES the desires get nourished and then work begins. Allowing play time AND work time to encourage those seeds to reality. Others are allowed to step in for support and share their expertise. The Art of Allowing BEgins.
The Root of it ALL
As most humans go, each soul is drawn to a specific area of life. Whether called to BE an Accountant, Angel Goddess, Chef, Inventor, Coach, etc. one keeps going back to it. However, as each evolves and experiences life, how the desires are addressed changes and alters to reflect where each person is now in their life.
Our roots may spread from the base. They may spread far from the base. They may latch onto something magnificent and yet... they all come back to the center, which of course is you.
What do you keep going back to?
I hearted on this... YES, hearted vs. thought.
Inspring and empowering others that has been the common factor for decades. Waaaay back in 7th grade I said I wished to be a psychologist. I ended up at court reporting school, so obviously did not listen to the whisperings of my heart instead listened to a guidance counselor who had no clue.
Another story for another time.
However, I did attend college for few years with the intention of psychology. This was a good 15 years after high school. I went back to my roots of helping others. I still didn't complete that program, but rather studied a bevy of other ways to listen, inspire and empower others. I circled back, but since I had evolved quite a bit since 7th grade, the catalyst to help others also morphed. Becoming a truer reflection of who I am and how I wish to live. I trained in Soul Coaching™ and various forms of healing modalities and Angel Chatter was born.
Where do your roots lay?
Our roots may go all over the place and yet they still lovingly lead back to us, the center. We may seemingly go off track, but is it really?
Each journey, each segue contributes to who each person BEcomes. For each life adventure then becomes a memory, as an emotion is stored that feeds the soul. As always it is up to each soul how to act, react and process each journey.
Is it always easy? Oh how I wish! Are they all meant to be savored like a fine wine? I'd hazard a guess and say a big fat ol' NO!
However, each does lay the groundwork to how we BEcome of service. Whether it is through a bonafide business, or helping a friend in need, writing a book, crafting beautiful art, accounting, medicine, law, etc.
Again I ask you, what are your roots? What do you keep circling back to?
The strength lies in the roots
As each soul steps into more of honoring who they are, more begins to fall into place for them.
Why? Because they are honoring, truly honoring who they are and why they are here. The have begun the dance of Self Love. Through that waltz, loves triumphs and reigns true.
We are circled by those that love and honor us. That power that is longed for but often pushed away. Just as the flower and foliage is thriving around this tree in the midst of rubble, we too can thrive in the midst of chaos when we stand tall and love us for who we are.
Life really is a wild ride, isn't it? We are expected to grow, prosper, be healthy and loving all the while stuff happens around us. Remember, YOU, each and every one of us is the calm in the center of the storm.
Stand tall in your loving power and others will wish to emulate you.
There appears to be great upheaval right now. Great upheaval not only globally, but it has trickled down to personal lives as well.
These are questions I've been pummeled with in just the past couple of weeks from clients, students and customers at shows.
This made me stop, ponder and ask The Gang.
WHAT is going on?
While it may seem everything is out to stop, thwart and/or control your every move. It is really far from the truth...or is it?
Of course it is the truth if you allow it to BE so and accept it as outside sources are out to get you.
However, remember, ALL is an illusion and sometimes a quiet breather is all we need to step back and allow ourselves to actually see what is going on. Here are some of the common culprits of this wonky energy:
Too Much IS going on
There is simply too much on our plate. We are that circus act of plate juggling and something must stop the nonsense.
Easier said than done at times, I get this, so bear with me.
I'm no different. Countless shows throughout the year to Inspire and Empower returning clients, new clients, introducing new great products (or hopefully great), etc. Private weekends. Orders, Family, wedding... well you get the idea... all the time attempting to maintain a sense of balance.
However, when I pulled back recently in meditation and asked
Why is it so easy to inspire and empower more?
I got amazing answers. Time to cut back on the show circuit. We LOVE doing shows, but they are tiring and sometimes it can get take a day or two or even three to fully recuperate. This of course leaves us drained with little energy to accomplish much. Feelings of being overwhelmed can become all consuming and can easily slip into a black hole where one just desires to pull the blankets over one's head and hide...for a long time.
However, chatting with Big Mike and using his mighty sword to cut through the crap of what is not needed is more than liberating. Clearing house of the highest order. Not just the stuff, but addressed our product line. We discontinued over six products and not one person has noticed. Not one. Those products were sapping energy and not allowing The New to come forward.
Time to Pull Back, Ask, Listen and Act.
I know, I know, it's extremely easy to fall into the depths of despair (thank you Anne of Green Gables for that phrase) and at times the event warrants the slip to allow one to figure out what is going on. So we can acknowledge, love and heal on ourselves. By going deep we can go higher than ever before.
However, since at heart many of us can be Drama Queens, is it really that dire?
Often times not. This is the prime time to chat with Sandalphon and do two things:
- Get Outside. Literally. No matter the temperature, getting outside for a minimum of 30 minutes can be a tremendous balm for the soul. This simple act of changing up the view that we see switches up our mental faculties and can offer different insights. It's one of the many reasons I LOVE my laptop - my office changes within a moment's notice; by the fireplace, at the kitchen table, actually in the office or out on the balcony to soak up the songs of nature while I work. It's extremely expansive and mind shifting.
- Think Outside the Box. One of my favorite current quotes is by Albert Einstein: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. How true! IF you are focusing on your desires and they aren't working out as expected, use the Askfirmations:
Why is it so easy to make this better?
Why is it so easy to know the next best steps for me?
Why is it so easy to shift the energy in my favor?
By using the Askfirmations and chatting with Sandalphon, The Angel of Grounding, you BEcome more in your body and can better notice the signs they are offering you to help propel you even further than ever before.
Give it a try.
This is indeed a biggy for us all. How often we live to serve and leave us in an exhausted heap at the end of the day? I know I can be a big ol' pile of mush watching something on Netflix as dribble starts emerging. Bottom line, it ain't pretty.
However, on those days I take the time to nourish my soul, magic happens. I take time to walk Gabi deep into the woods so she can go swamping. I set my intention prior to stepping a foot out the door of what I would like clarity on and let go. As we meander, all sorts of yummy things come to BE.
Taking time for self; the luxurious bubble bath (you now know this is one of my all time favorites), the walk in nature, an exercise class, something, anything you are doing for you gives back to you. I truly cannot stress this enough. You must do this regularly (once a quarter is sooo not regularly).
Why so important? Because you matter. You deserve to BE recognized and loved upon. When you do this, the universe likewise recognizes your energy shift and you begin to be treated with more love, respect and recognition.
As our soul is rejuvenating the cobwebs are taken away. We are saying, YES I need help! We begin to allow more to come in the forms of assistance, ideas and more. Shifts happen and happen more easily, effortlessly and yes joyfully.
Is it always rosy and sunshine?
Of course not. Life does go up and down and it's recognizing the differences that can allow you to take advantage, yes I did just say take advantage, of the dips.
By allowing yourself to go deep you can better see what is triggering the dip. Then chatting with Raphael (Angel of Healing) for healing, Chamuel (Angel of Self Love) for Self Love, Zadkiel (Angel of Transmutation) for clearing and lastly Azrael (Angel of Transition) to transcend this gap and leave behind what does not serve you, magic can and does often happen.
It's listening to your soul and acknowledging its truth. It's listening to you soul and allowing love to enter and take hold. It's listening to your soul and know it's time to BE you.
I look forward to reading your responses below!
Five Things to Know About Working with Archangels April 12 2018 1 Comment
As our lives seem to getting busier and busier, it becomes easier and easier to lose touch with the archangels, angels, The Gang.
By the time we realize it has slipped away, we forget how to get it back and keep it. Let's chat....
Step One - Relax.
I know, I know, so much easier said than done, but you know I am right. The more you focus on something, anything, the slippery it seems to get to the conclusion let alone an opening to step through.
It's through relaxing the mind that the body follows suit. How to relax? There are certainly a plethora of ways:
- Meditation. Just start with five minutes before you jump out of bed. Five minutes giving THANKS for what is currently in your life will not only help to jumpstart your day, but open countless doors.
- Exercise. Whether it is a walk in the woods, yoga, kick boxing, tai chi, etc. Your mind takes a small break thus allowing you to BE more present. Remember, it is in the State of BEing that miracles happen.
- Create. Whenever I get in full blown creative mode; writing, gardening, sewing, and/or needlework my mind shuts up. Why? I'm using a not frequent used part of my brain. I'm focusing and having fun in the process vs. the outcome. (OH, get that message? Enjoy the journey!) Many of you have seen the Christmas Stockings I make annually for friends and family. The same love goes into the gardens, perhaps more only because I am in the dirt longer collectively than when I'm in threads and yarns. It doesn't matter the act of what can get you to realign, but engage in it so you can relax.
Remember, it's really any activity you participate in that can hush the mind. The more you engage in this activity, the more the mind can rest thus allowing you to BE.
Step Two - ASK
True, who hasn't asked for their help and claim they have heard nada.
Me too at times. HOWEVER, I will admit that in those times I am upset about something and my mind just won't shut up for more than a nano-second. I ask. I ask. I ask and get zippo. Which of course is really not the case, but feels like it.
One of the ways I've learned to ask is this:
Be specific about what you wish them to help with. Then give the archangels a deadline of when you want an answer. For example,
A few years back I was in a very whiny mood. Very whiny. Was I really suppose to be doing this work? Was I really here to help inspire and empower folks around the world? (no small task, right?) I mean I wasn't seeing things take off. I wasn't this or that. I was whining pure and simple.
I was out walking Gabi and chatting with The Gang. I told them as such and I demanded a sign from them. The sign had to be clear. The sign had to be angelic (after all I am chatting with them, right?). I had to receive it by Sunday. I figured in the four days it took to get to Sunday, my mood would shift and I'd probably forget my request.
Well each day starting with Thursday I was on the lookout; Was THAT the sign? or WAS THAT it? or... Well you get the idea.
By the time Saturday afternoon rolled around I had softened the grip of 'signs'.
Sunday morning our youngest texted me at screenshot of what was being aired on TV at the moment.
Every single show, including the ads, had the word angels in it.
Think I got my sign, eh?
Relax, ask and
Third Step - Allow
Ohhhh, this is probably the most difficult for us humans to grasp and implement. For some bizarre reason we think allowing someone to assist us is a form of weakness.
Including the angels.
I get it. I had that mentality as well for a bit plus you add my control freak tendencies on top of that, it's just not a good combo.
However, I have learned!
We've had some beautiful goddesses helping out at shows in those rare times my honey can't assist in person. As long as I am methodical in my explanations and tips to make their lives easier - it's done to my satisfaction and beyond and I've gotten help! I've allowed the assistance.
Allowing help is not a weakness. It is actually a strength!
Allowing another, even if it comes in the form of a winged and haloed 'person' helps you actually get more out of life from joy, love, health and yes even those mundane tasks to the more pertinent; jobs, etc.
It is a way to relax. That's not to say you kick back while they do all the work. Oh no! It's assigning a task and being proactive on something you can do with greater joy.
Step Four - Accept
Now you may think Allow and Accept are one in the same thing. They actually are not. They certainly overlap, but allowing does not always mean you accept the help.
It's the ol' asking someone to wash the dishes and allowing it. THEN going back and washing them to your satisfaction later. You really haven't allowed anything. You are not fooling anyone and in fact you most likely hurt that person's feelings and lowered their self esteem (which of course is not your intention) and made more work for yourself!
It's allowing the archangels loving wisdom in and accepting it. Remember, the archangels will NEVER tell you are unworthy for anything. They warn you. They guide you. They are here to serve you and only you.
Everything they do comes from love. Everything they do is integrity filled. True, humor may be thrown in for good measure; works quite well on me - gets my attention every time.
Accept their suggestions. It comes in all sorts of ways; through a friend's mouth, through a song, numbers, inspired ideas that you just can't let go and more.
So listen and act upon those juicy inspirational ideas you will certainly be getting.
Step Five - Wait
Did I just actually tell you to wait? Yep, sure did. It's in the waiting timeframe that all your senses can come alive. You BEgin to hear with great clarity, not just the surface message, but the underlying meaning.
You BEgin to see. You give witness to life that is surrounding you; a child's laughter, the butterfly dancing in the breeze, the dew on a blade of grass and much more. Colors BEcome more alive and surpass your comfortable spectrum of colors.
You BEgin to sense more. You know without a doubt when something needs to get done. You understand another's life without judgment and are present to hold space for them.
You BEgin to feel more. You awaken each morning with a smile and a note of gratitude before the day has begun.
All of your senses rise to a higher level of sensitivity which of course allows you to better see, hear, know, feel when the archangels are chatting with you. For once you BEgin to chat and work with the archangels, life is truly never the same. It just gets better and better and better.
Will you relax, ask, allow, accept and receive?
Who are Archangels Michael and Gabriel and how do they help you? January 17 2018
If you are interested in any things woo-woo and/or angels, odds are you know of or have at least heard of Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel. When I think about it, looking back they were probably first in line as part of my initiation of remembering.
Whenever I start introducing anyone to the angelic realm, Archangel Michael, or alias Big Mike, is always first. Why? He is the Angel of Protection. As a leader and teacher I want to be assured that you are protected as you delve deeper into your spiritual practice as you go higher.
Big Mike is one of the few angels mentioned in the bible. He oversees the solar plexus and throat chakra; our place of power and communication. How great is it that when he is by your side that communication becomes easier! When Michael begins to enter your life more consciously, your ride of empowerment is just beginning in earnest.
Michael is the patron saint of the police force in the United States. His color association is yellow and blue. What colors are the the United States police force?
You got it, yellow and blue. Somewhere, somehow, someone knew this and guessing had a deep connection with Archangel Michael and decided to bring that protective power forward. In fact, I’ve had clients share their stories that while in the courtroom they as well as others actually see him there! He’s just cool that way. As any self respecting angel has a tool, Michael is no different. Since he is THE protector, his tool of choice? A sword! He can and will cut through any crap in your life, stand guard (with a smile on his face) and do battle for you when needed.
As all names have a meaning, Michael is no different. His name is translated to mean, “Who Is As God.” What a beautiful reminder that can easily apply to you. YOU are a true reflection of God/Goddess. A beautiful being filled with love, light, joy, immense grace, with a bit of quirkiness thrown in for good measure. As a reflection of this energy, you have the ability to do all you desire. You know, those dreams that can keep you up at night, those dreams that feel real and leave you breathless due to all the beauty and joy it gives to you. Those are the kind of insights that the angels can sneak in to remind you of who you are and what you are meant to be doing. Michael holds one of the keys to help open those doors for you. His question to you is…. ‘Will you step through?’
I’ve had a personal encounter with each of the angels that I directly work with; therefore there is of course one for Big Mike:
It had been one crazy strand of a chaotic few weeks that actually spanned the entire spring season. It started with my dad having a massive heart attack - or the Day the Elephant Danced as he calls it. (It felt like an elephant was dancing on his chest). Dad not only survived, but is now thriving. I happened to be visiting them during this adventure; I naturally extended my visit to help be the comic relief and do what I do best; distract and comfort.
Then we had three back to back expos scattered around the region. While we came home in between each one to restock and slightly refuel, we became tired.
Our youngest then had elective surgery approximately one week after the last show. I trekked across The Chesapeake Bay (about a four hour journey) to be with her. If you have children and they have ever been operated on, you know how I felt. STRESSED! She came through it with flying colors and was released later that day. I then gathered our eldest and we headed to visit her; another hour away. We stayed for the weekend, made yummy food, nurtured, visited, and tried to relax. A few days later, my eldest and I drove back to her home for a Farmer's Market run and quick visit with her and her boyfriend.
I then left their home and headed back to my parents, another four hour trek, to retrieve my Yogi Dog, Gabi.
Tired yet? I was.
As I am driving along, Michael pops in to remind me to have him surround the car.
Shades of things to come?
All was going smoothly, little traffic, and familiar terrain. Gertrude, my handy dandy GPS System, then had me turn onto a road I was unfamiliar with. Since it had been a while since I traveled this particular route, I thought I had forgotten it and listened.
Ugh. The road quickly became barely a two lane road with NO berms/shoulder or dividing line. Oh, did I mention it was VERY curvy? By the time I came to the realization that this is NOT where I wanted to be, I figured, how bad could it get and trudged on.
How bad could it be? Silly question.
Did I mention it was curvy? I drove on, knuckles becoming white as my hands gripped the steering wheel.
I called on Big Mike, just to make sure he was around. I was getting scared and knowing that he was around helped to rest my mind… a little. I mean, I knew I was driving well, but those curves were not making me comfortable as I was unsure how others would handle them.
I drove below the speed limit, very unlike me, and see yet another curve up ahead. Before I could slow down more, a BIG truck is now headed directly for me. Okay it wasn’t an eighteen-wheeler, but I couldn’t see the driver, he/she was up that high. I pulled over as far as possible and was now driving partly on the grass. The truck still didn't pull more to their side and kept plowing ahead.
Before I knew it, I am pressing hard on the horn. How my hand got there still befuddles me. It was as if a hand had gently pried my hand from the steering wheel, placed it on the horn and pressed. Hard.
The truck then pulled more to their chosen side, I think slightly slowed down and passed me. I tell you, I think, I could have put my hand out and touched the truck as it passed. Yes it was that close.
I exhaled. Who knew I was holding my breath?! I look in the rearview mirror, the truck emitted no brake lights and simply kept moving forward.
Heart racing, glowing with sweat, I continuing driving white knuckled for the rest of that trek and practically kissed the ground when I arrived at my folks home.
It was beyond a nerve wracking experience and took hours to calm down.
OH! The next day after sharing this story with a friend, she promptly writes back that Big Mike popped into her office immediately after reading my story and says ‘Yep, I was there protecting her.’ He appeared to her as a flash of white light surrounded by electric blue.
Hopefully this story has proven to you that you don’t need or are required to do a specific ceremony to connect with him or any other angel. Seriously, if I had to stop what I was doing (driving safely) and kneel down, face South before he would listen? I’mmmm not so sure I’d be her right now.
Gabriel is no different in his accessibility to you and all things creative. Gabriel works with the sacral chakra the place of creativity, sexual, sensual and miracles. Before you skip this over by not thinking you aren’t creative, STOP! Every day you do something creative whether it be planning a menu, schedule shuffling, art, writing or problem solving. Each and every day we are tapping into this very juicy chakra.
Toot Toot! That is Gabriel tooting his horn with you in mind. True, a horn is often associated with Gabriel as he can also be called 'The Great Communicator’. He brings news of all kinds; the good, the bad, the ugly and the euphoric. He is the angel accredited with giving Mary the news of the impeding birth of her Son. Talk about euphoric, but what a ‘burden’ knowing what your son was to experience in his life. Gabriel’s horn can also offer the ‘all’s good to go’ sign. In fact, while at an expo, a new client came forward only because she heard Gabriel’s horn while standing at our booth and knew she would get great clarity from the angels through me. What a blessing indeed!
Gabriel also assists in awakening the senses. For example, think of one of the most decadent meals you’ve ever had. You felt the food swirl within your mouth; the textures, the spices. The food felt like it was literally exploding and made you salivate for more. THIS is the senses waking up and truly enjoying what life is offering you. The meal became a sensual experience, just as wearing a luxurious piece of clothing, just as smelling an aroma you adore.
Archangel Gabriel's Mandala
How about those doodles you absentmindedly draw when bored? What about how you decorate your home? What about...So the next time someone says you or they are not creative, just smile and shout out, ‘Au contraire!’ and give a wink to Gabriel for showing how creative you really are.
Gabriel assists in birth as well as death. It’s the Cycle/Circle of Life. He is especially helpful if the grieving process has become difficult; you can’t get past the death of a loved one. Whether it is mourning, blaming self for things said or not said, things done or not done. All those ‘what ifs’ that typically run amuck during this powerfully charged time. This can also include a beloved pet. Allow Gabriel to connect with you and remember the joyful moments of that one’s life and the reason that they were in it; no matter how short or long. If there is something that is still yearning to be said to them, Gabriel can and will assist getting your message delivered. Remember he carries a horn - it acts as a great megaphone.
Just like Michael’s name means Who is like God. Gabriel’s name translates to God is My Strength. What a beautiful reminder that you can build your strength with the assistance of Gabriel. Strength to go after your dreams. Strength to give birth to new ways of being. Strength to be different, and be you. Strength to not only shine, but to share your brilliance with the world.
Hopefully you are beginning to better understand how integrated Archangels Michael and Gabriel are in your lives already. Sometimes it is about connected dots and better understanding of who does what

Oh those numbers.
Those magical numbers that are in our face every single day constantly offer insights and tidbits into the various ways we can BE and what can be in store for us all.
The upcoming Gateway is no exception.
November is the 11th month and on the 11th day a doorway is once more opening for those ready to step more into their Mastery of BEing.
There is no end to this, ahem, race. There is no gold medal to get there first. Therefore take your time and enjoy the ride.
The Gateway is a powerful opportunity to sit in reflection and meditate while focusing on the energies of LOVE.
Start with LOVE of self. Chat with Chamuel, the Angel of Self Love, to pry open your heart allowing LOVE to enter. It is through loving self more that more of what is desired is seen and embraced by each of you reading this.
What we desire? Yes.
Perhaps a romantic relationship.
Perhaps financial freedom.
Perhaps great ease of health to allow more physical activity.
As the saying goes, it does start within. Remember, nobody can love you more than you love yourself; including the universe. That is not to say it is not presented and offered on a daily basis, but if you are not feeling worthy to receive it, you will push it away. It gets pushed away via self sabotage, degrading self talk, anger and more. Oh the excuses are freely offered as to the why it cannot happen.
I will continue to remind you until the day I drop dead that
You Are Worthy of ALL You Desire
Sit with that little ol' sentence until you feel a shift within. It may take a moment or two. They are not asking you to hear the choir of angels singing your praises, but just enough of a shift that it makes you smile. This is the first step of knowing that you are indeed worthy. The first step towards manifesting what is desired and no longer settling.
I'm lighting a Chamuel Candle in honor of YOU. That is how committed I am to helping to inspire and empower YOU. Sit with the picture below and feel its energy coming to you. Allow the LOVE to permeate into every cell within.
You Are Loved
Focus on the Healing, not the Act November 09 2017 1 Comment
Healing. All yearn for it, but ... do we really?
Money and the energy we have wrapped up around it. November 02 2017 2 CommentsMoney - this was an interesting channeling that Angel Chamuel offered in the way of allowing and self love.
What can Angel Cards do for you? October 18 2017
As many of you know, I channeled the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck in two weeks a few years back. I've gotten this question lately:
How do I use the deck and how are oracle cards different than tarot cards?
Both kinds of cards; tarot and oracle, are created to help inspire and empower the user. They are forms of divination. Tarot has been in active use since the mid 15th century. Oracle cards are a much newer divination tool and have been in use since the mid 19th century. Both have value and honestly I believe have been around much longer than the history books may show. My thought is that oracle cards came to be after tarot because tarot can truly take a lifetime to master and folks wanted a simpler, more direct way to divine messages from the universe and beyond. I personally don't use tarot because it makes my hair hurt. I always choose to go simple in anything. Don't always succeed, but when possible, simple is the go to option.
Oracle cards are typically more straight forward than tarot, no suits and cards within said suits, etc. However, many oracle decks seem to be designed as a tarot deck wanna be; beautifully and heavily illustrated with different meanings depending if the card was upside down, flew out, etc.
Still complicated for some. Why can't a message be a message? Why does the illustration have to have a meaning too? Why can't the message just BE? Why does it have to have the reverse meaning if presented in a different way? These are the sorts of questions I often found myself asking with no clear answer ... ever. If you are a seasoned reader, I'm sure you can make a logical argument as to the whys, but again this delves into hair hurting territory.
I like simple.
With that in mind, the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck was born. For starters, no illustrations; or the ones that are typically assigned to oracle cards. The only art on this deck is the abstract rose in the top left hand corner; everything does indeed come from LOVE. The other? The angel's sigil; the symbol that has been proven to me via clients and customers to strengthen your connection with that angel. Lastly, the angel's message. As I often say the message now can stand on its own merit and doesn't matter if it flies out, is twirling on its head or upside down; the message is the message.
How to use them? As with many things, there are a variety of ways. Here are some of my favorites:
- Pull one card daily. This helps to focus on a specific energy throughout the day. For example if the Breathe card is pulled, you are invited to remember this throughout your day if stressed, are exercising, or simply need a moment or two to self.
- Do a spread. There are many kinds of spreads out there and each one will also have its own merit. A spread is best done when you have ample time to sit with the cards and focus on each message and how it pertains/relates to you. A spread is very beneficial when there is a situation in your life when one card simply won't suffice. A spread can be as few as three cards up to ? A six card spread is offered in our guidebook.
- You could also pull the cards that all relate to a specific angel. As an example, if you are on a conscious Self Love Journey, pulling all of Chamuel's (Angel of Self Love) cards will help to reinforce how important it is to LOVE self first and foremost.
Hopefully this has simplified these age old questions as you step more confidently on your chosen path to BE. I look forward to reading your comments below and feel free to share the Chatter!
The Harvest Moon - What are you 'harvesting'? October 06 2017
Luna was in her full glory last night, heralding in the energies of the Harvest Moon. This trends back to the 'olden' times when many crops were harvested to add to the bounty that would get them through the harsher times of the winter months.
This still holds true today in a myriad of ways though. Many of us are not farmers and do not pretend to be given in account how abundant food is throughout the year. Although many of us still will 'play farmer' and enjoy canning sauce, vegetables, etc. to add some summer freshness in during those long dark days of winter.
However, let's talk of the spiritual or personal harvest. What kind of seeds have you been planting? This is the no judgment zone remember, but really look at the seeds you have been sowing.
Are they ones of fear?
Are they ones of lack?
Are they ones of insecurity or low self worth?
Are they ones of excitement?
Are they ones of renewal?
Are they ones of vast abundance?
You see where I'm going with this. It is the Law of Attraction at its finest. What you put out there is ricocheted back to you. The difference it is coming back at ya ten fold. MANY are reporting back with feelings of unease, a depth of tiredness not known before (this includes me; I slept close to ten hours that past two nights! I rarely did this, even as a teenager!).
I have some answers, but as you well know, one size does not fit all. This I do know for sure:
We are slipping into the energies of 2018 - afterall we are in the last quarter of 2017. Our senses are heightening. Our sense of urgency is coming in at the speed of light. It IS happening. As you may remember, The Gang pronounced 2018 as The Year of Love. While one may think of gooey, romantic love (and that's true), what about love of self as the primary love?
Remember, loving self first is not selfish, it is imperative. You're going to be hearing this a lot from me via The Gang for many, many months, so get use to it. You MUST love yourself first. Period. You MUST honor your desires and needs. If you need sleep, SLEEP. If you need to eat, EAT (healthily of course). If you need to say no, SAY NO. And so on. Honoring your emotions does not give permission to own the emotions. Think of this way:
I am doing tiredness vs. I am tired.
I am doing hunger vs. I am hungry.
I am doing confusion vs. I am confused.
A simple word switcheroo can make a big difference in how you feel. For those that have been with me a bit know of the should vs. could war. This is the same kind of situation.
You empaths are really feeling this. You desire to go into seclusion. Please don't. Sit with your feelings. This is a HUGE growth spurt for you. Honor what you are feeling. If you don't have a journal, get thee to your closest office supply store and get one. It really doesn't matter what it looks like. What matters is that you are better able to process the energy swirling around you and journaling helps. a. lot.
Another tool is our Crystal Sceptres I cannot recommend them enough. My first was gifted to me and the energy is lovely, empowering and yet soft. I daily immerse mine in my water. I also do this for Gabi and the 'lions' water bowls. Each day a different angel steps forward to offer guidance and through that guidance the sceptre is chosen. I meditate with it; this greatly helps to quiet my mind and offer 'out of the box' solutions to a vast array of situations.
Bottom line is to stay true to yourself. Small sentence, BIG impact. This may take the rest of your life to master and then some, so BE patient.
I look forward to reading your responses and feel free to share the post!
What on Earth is going on? September 13 2017 2 Comments
So many of you have reached out with questions of disbelief, low energy levels, not feeling 100% and more.
I get it.
Let's look to our most recent past.
We had a partial lunar and solar eclipse.
We had our first full solar eclipse in decades here in the States.
Two hurricanes just barreled through the States with unrelenting force, leaving too much devastation in their wake.
Think the energy is churned up? Of course it is! Why wouldn't it affect you? No matter where you live, energy is energy and it travels. This shift has hit everyone, at various levels. I'm no exception. I returned to our home away from the beach fer reals over the past few days. While our home was not in disarray, it needed some TLC and waking up.
Wake it up I did; cleaning each and every room top to bottom. Baseboards, windows, files, etc. all cleaned and purged. As I went from room to room I carried Michael's Sacred Candle with me bringing in the energy of protection while the kaka got swept up and away.
The house now feels great.
However, I was pretty exhausted (not a great way to start show season) and I realize a new not so nice portal had opened in our backyard. Even Gabi was anxious going out the back to play, relax and well whatever dogs do. She confirmed what I thought/knew; something was icky out there. Work was quickly assigned to The Gang and Mystical Creatures to close it off and send the unwanted energies back home (we don't displace around here and leaving someone else to deal with it all - not good karma in my book).
In the midst of this I facilitated a guided meditation with my students last night. It went well; however the reaction wasn't the typical WOW! Many felt a bit afraid afterwards - OH DEAR -
Ironically prior to the meditation we chatted about encountering new things - mystical creatures included - and how at times we push things away even if it is the very thing that is need at that moment in time. Why? Bottom line, it's something new. New can be scary. Especially if it is a powerful new tool often one doesn't feel worthy to have such a tool. I get that as well. I've turned away help many a time because I would think who am I to garner such assistance?
I toss back to you - why don't you deserve all the help you request/desire? Especially now with the energy swirling and twirling all over the place. Why wouldn't you allow outside assistance from The Winged and Haloed Gang or a Crystal (we have super cool sceptres), or a Unicorn or a Centaur or a ....
See where I'm going with this? Life is about asking and receiving. Not just the winning lottery ticket, but also in the day to day of life. From having your home protected as you clean, to your yard so it's safe for all to enjoy, to yes maybe winning the lottery.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one powerful topic... allowing the assistance to come through even if you haven't asked for it. Trust me, they know when you are ready.
The time is now... September 12 2017 2 Comments
The time is now to remember to breathe and breathe deeply.
The time is now to BE grateful for all that is already in your world.
The time is now to cheer on others as they march to their drum.
The time is now for you to fly your Freak Flag.
The time is now for you to BE the Star of your life.
Transparency = BEing August 28 2017 3 Comments
Honestly I'm not sure where this post is going to go... could be a rant, could be an AHA, could be filled with vignettes of stories... it could...
As we have flipped well into the third quarter of 2017 and are now flirting with the last, allow me to remind you that waaay back almost one year ago The Gang dubbed 2017 as The Year of Transparency.
Much has happened energetically in the past two months; Mary Magdalene's Feast Day getting more notice with a channeled post from me, two lunar eclipses compounded with a new and full moon, mercury dancing in retrograde (which seems to be wreaking havoc across the board regarding communication) and let us not forget the biggest event, the total solar eclipse.
Things got fluffed up.
To dance more in the Land of Woo, Doreen Virtue's video announcement that she is walking away from much of what she taught for decades has many tongues a waggin'. This is not a Doreen Bashing Event (there's plenty of that going around), but perhaps better understand that this is The Act of Transparency in action. She is on her human path. She resonates with what she now believes to be real. Is she correct? Who knows, but for her, it makes sense and that is important for her journey. Transparency. If you aren't sure to what event I'm talking about, I can't share the source for her video; it has been removed from YouTube. Bottom line, she's rebranding her beliefs and has openly walked away from much of what she used to teach.
She's human and allowed this change... we are ALL about evolving and walking our truest path. It's how we address and share it that differs from person to person. How we tend to those that follow us (no matter how big or small the following) and how we are currently supporting them.
Take me as an example, as many of you know, The Course launched fully this year. The lessons are targeted to work up the chakra system; Sandalphon, Uriel, Gabriel, etc. This helps students to be more grounded as they delve into higher resonating energies. So Uriel is in italics for apparently he decided to go AAWOL (Absent Angel Without Leave) for several weeks. Some students were two or three lessons past him when he finally decided to emerge. Oh dear... I called it what it was... a mistake on my end (have to own it for I'm the one reading homework and sending out next) .. I couldn't even blame Mercury - for this has been going on for weeks!
Shake head while hanging head moment ensued ...
I strive to be a leader. I strive to be Mary Poppins (yeah yeah yeah I know even she isn't perfect, but please don't pop my bubble). Eh, life happens. But how FUNNY that Uriel, The Angel of Safety is the one who decided to hide....
You Are Safe To BE You
What better message in relation to transparency? BE you. All may not 'get you' but it's not your job to appeal or even be understood by all. It's your job to BE. Remember, there are always many sides to every story. It is up to you to take with you what jives. Perhaps argue with what doesn't, but perhaps prior to arguing, ask why is this pushing my buttons? Within the answers to that question will lie your truth.
Nobody ever said BEing transparent was going to be an easy feat. If that were the case, there would be no broken hearts, no wars, no fear of war, etc. for all would be be speaking their truth. When truth is spoken, it does not come from ego (the birthplace of fear), but from love.
For what is love?
It is the truth.
This month's full moon on July 9th is also called the Thunder Moon within Native American Cultures. Why thunder? Logically, it is when in the northern hemisphere the chance of thunderstorms are the highest than any other time of the year. This is also the time that the young bucks begin to grow their antlers; they are stepping into their power. This gives hints of how this moon shall affect you.
Back to the energy of thunderstorms...
Thunderstorms hold within them all the elements:
- Fire - lightening
- Water - rain
- Wind - durr
- Earth - where lightening strikes. If on beaches, it creates the powerful crystal, fulgurite (sometimes called Lightening Stone)
- Metal - while not in the truest sense, but the ozone that is created with lightening strikes has a metal 'taste' to it.
What does all this mean and how can you harness it?
First grab your crystal babies; especially your clear quartz. Place them outside. Clear quartz is The Master Crystal and contains within it all the elements. It gets absolutely giddy when placed outside during a thunderstorm, or in this case The Thunder Moon. This particular moon's energy will clear and charge your beauties. One size can fit all at times!
Due to a thunderstorm's intensity, it also brings with it that same kind of intensity within your personal life. Great feelings of squeamishness, unworthiness, frustration, failure can all bubble up during this time. This is the perfect time to hand over these inferior thoughts to The Gang for some serious LOVE.
It is a time of moving forward with greater speed. Folks, seemingly at random, will ply you with new ideas of what you could do to make your life better. LISTEN well, for through them the angels are talking.
IF you are an adventurous sort, go outside during a thunderstorm.
(I release all blame for being silly if lightening strikes too close to you and you get hurt.)
Set your intention. What do you wish to clear? What do you wish to manifest? As all full moons go, there is great power within this one.
IF a storm is brewing or raging, keep track of lightening strikes and how close it is. (count seconds after a lightening strike. Each second roughly gauges how far in mileage the lightening struck. PLEASE if too close, get inside). IF safe, feel the energy build within you. Feel your power surge. BEcome more alive. As the storms moves on, feel your soul own this new found energy and BEcome one with it all.
As soon as you are back inside to dryer climates, write down everything that comes to mind. These thoughts may seem random and yet, they may not. You are receiving messages from The Gang at a very fast pace, so be sure to have the paper or journal laid out before you go outside. Once all is written down, it is advised that you don't dwell upon what was written down, thought of, etc. for approximately one moon cycle. This allows the energy of the Thunder Moon and/or Thunderstorm to do its cleansing and propelling you forward.
It is most definitely a scenario of Ask, Release, Receive.
IF there is no thunderstorm during this Full Moon, repeat the above exercise. Set the intention that you allow the storm to surge through you to clear unwanted energies and fill you with great power. The greater power of LOVE. As you as getting clearer, you realize that LOVE does conquer all. LOVE fuels all. LOVE is ALL. Even if dry outside, I recommend you do not bring your journal outside with you initially. Spend quality time with the moon's energy first. If it is a lovely evening in your world, you may eventually bring out your sacred journal and begin writing. Trust me, you will miss out on the fun if you bring out the journal and write from the get go... be patient!
Chat with Angel Auriel, The Angel of the Moon. She helps to illuminate your chosen path with greater clarity. She will most definitely surprise you with insights of where your path is taking you, who is going to be involved, and what some of the results will be.
A magical moon indeed.

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

The Day the Angel Goddess went mum... June 13 2017 1 Comment
As the world now knows, The Course has launched.
What a birthing experience! The support from family, friends, clients, customers and YOU have made it possible.
Thank you most sincerely.
However, a funny thing happened on the way to launching. There is most definitely a series of events that play into the final outcome (always does).
The week prior I had some dental work; two crowns and a filling to be exact - all in one sitting. My mouth was open for over three hours. While not the end of the world by any means, it's not typical, even for me - one who loves to chat. Talk about a clearing! In the midst of this, Honey Guy was sick. He's never sick. He experienced a low grade fever, coughing, the works. He recovered in a few days with about 36 hours to spare before our beautiful client came in for her private weekend. Lots of food to prep, rooms to clean and packages to assemble. Stepping forward a bit more in the spotlight.
Allergies then hit me during the weekend when again my mouth is open. Okay, this time I was chatting, but still. It did not close with exception of sleep ... or chewing of food.
Our weekend timeline was pushed forward as she wished to be home early afternoon on Sunday; it was their wedding anniversary after all! Push we did. By Sunday morning all were thrilled with the outcome, although a tad tired.
By Sunday afternoon, the voice began to go. 'I had my sexy voice on'. It was deep, hoarse and gravely; well you get the idea. I drank my tea; calendula laced with honey to coat and baby it.
The voice continued to wobble on Monday.
By Launch Day of The Course, the voice was gone. Kaput, it had completely left the building. Friends and family were horrified. Me? Just tired and not worried.
Why? Because my voice is now heard within the course. For The Course is the biggest adventure I've ever done publicly. I put my foot, oh who am I kidding, my entire being, out there for the world to see. For better, or worse, I am now being completely heard for as many that wish to listen and learn from me.
As I put this piece of work forth, my throat said, 'time for rest now' and rest it indeed did. True there were a few other physical ailments that tagged along for the ride, but ultimately - my throat chakra under went its major healing for this life and it needed a bit of rest.
You see, we communicate in such a wide variety of ways; not just with our voice. We communicate with our hair styles, clothing, jewelry, aromas (perfume, cologne), decor of our homes and yes especially the words we use.
All of these forms of communication are linked to a variety of chakras, but certainly throat is one of the them; expression. I've known for years that this is the one I was to work with and conquer in this life. My lesson? Finding comfort in speaking my truth. Feeling safe and secure that I had something of value to share with others. Sharing information that is at times obscure and certainly not your run of the mill coffee conversation. Some in my inner circle find that humorous since I love chatting. I chat it up with the best of them on a regular basis. The secret is I don't chat with just anyone about anything. I don't share who I am and what I do easily. But NOW with The Course out there, guess I can't hide any more now can I?
It's time to BE you.
As always, please leave your comments below and feel free to share this post with whomever you think will benefit from it.
The Full Moon and Her energies June 08 2017 1 Comment
The upcoming full moon is in the sign of Sagittarius. This particular moon harkens to all to stand in their power (I love reading this AFTER I post the Daily Channeled message - still love those confirmations)
This particular moon is also called the Strawberry Moon. This signifies it is time to harvest strawberries. It is also called the Rose Moon and Hot Moon. I'm going to go with rose, for rose signifies great love to me. However, keep in mind that most rose varieties also have thorns... life is not always about sweetness and celebration!
With this combination of Sagittarius and Rose Moon, marks a strong humanitarian streak, which is the essence of caring: Act as though your life depends on it. For it does. You are creating dharma.
In other words, It's a time to BE. BE yourself. This means BEing silly, spontaneous, joy-filled. Be forewarned though dear Chatterer, there is a sense of urgency that is underlying in this moon's energy. A sense of being reckless (notice the absence of 'BE' here). Do stay alert to your surroundings. There is an undercurrent of not nice and you empaths have felt this brewing for at least a few days and unfortunately we have witnessed such events globally with various acts of fear. Also notice I do not use the word terrorism here. Each act, whether it is a full scale act or more personal, is an Act of Fear by the initiator. It is up to each person individually how they respond (again notice I do not use the word 'victim'). Do you lash out equally, or do you step back and understand the 'whys' better?
Is it karma or dharma at play? Karma is the 'I deserve this from a past life' or dharma - the healing of karma combined with paying it forward energy.
Can these acts be avoided? Not really. Each one is a call to arms at various levels. Each one is a call to BE. Each one is a remembrance that LOVE is indeed the answer.
Why do they need to happen then? Simply put, to wake up humanity. If you think about it, each act of fear rallies people from around the world in love and peace. However, as long as these have been happening and as long as I given it thought, I have noticed that we, as humans, have the attention span of a gnat. Meaning it's not long before we rush back to comfort, the dullness, the routine of life and forget the event for it doesn't affect us directly. However, with each event a few stay in that essence of Love and Peace. The tide of Love builds. The tide of understanding grows taller. The tide of BEing becomes more permanent. The more that stay there. The more that can stay in the essence of BEing, the more likely these kinds of events will cease.
Bottom line? Take charge. Don't allow another's action to dictate how you act! Isn't it time, past time really, that you called the shots so to speak? Don't you wish for a life filled with more ease, peace, love, joy and great abundance? Of course you do. We all do. Then stop allowing another's thoughts, words, deeds dictate your life. Move forward with all the gusto you have within. Look at the ways you deal with each situation. Do you meditate, binge eat, exercise, draw, scream? All can point to a way you can help others.
Each thing we do is a way we cope. Each thing we do is a way we offer to heal ourselves. Your very actions inspire others.
Hmmm.... betcha never thought of it that way before, had you?

In order to ALLOW, one must BE... June 01 2017
We've chatted about allowing recently. You know, allowing others to step in to help and not feeling less than by doing so.
How easy is it to allow? Apparently not as as easy as ordering a pizza. Of course it all varies from event or yearning to event and yearning. What I have noticed and have begun to embrace more is the Art of BEing. True, you probably have heard me use this phrase before, but bear with me for a few more moments.
When we are in the moment of BEing, we ARE allowing. How cool is that?!
When we are present in our energy, we allow. When we are in the moment, all is indeed right with the world and we are not pondering on who is going to call, what shoe may or may not drop next. We aren't even wondering what is for dinner! (perhaps I am getting a tad hungry with all these food metaphors...)
When we are present; something that meditation can offer us, or yoga or conscious walking (you know, walking and not talking. Walking and allowing self to see the beauty that is being present to us.) It's in these moments our hearts fill. It is in these moments we sigh. It is in these moments we know we are enough.
If we are enough, and of course we are, we are BEing. If we are BEing, and we are, we are allowing. Nothing is forced. It is what it is. We are not judging; we realize all, including self, have foibles. We are stunning, light-filled, full. We are at peace.
What angel to call upon for this? My go to for BEing, is Shamael, wings down. Why? Shamael is the Angel of Harmony. Try this exercise. It's one Shamael had me perform years ago for the first time and I still practice on a somewhat regular basis. It's a bit unorthodox, but the results from a BEing perspective may just blow your mind.
Wash a pot or two with your eyes closed. Yes, you read correctly, eyes closed. Of course once 'completed', double check to make sure you got it all, but for the first stage, eyes closed. Why bother? You have no choice but to be present. You are scrubbing away and feeling the pot. You are feeling the bumps (most likely food that requires removing). You are feeling the smoothness. What a lovely reminder; all have bumps, but once acknowledged all is smooth once more.
It's a minor lesson in gratitude. You've used this pot countless times, have you ever thanked it? Most likely not. As you are scrubbing with your eyes closed, give thanks for all those yummy (or not so yummy) meals it helped you prepare. As you scrub with your eyes closed, what other subtle nuances are you now aware of? I'm betting your breathing slows. I'll even wager you have a little smile growing. I'll even go out on a limb here and say your entire being begins to relax. Everything begins to s.l.o.w. down.
Why? Because you are now BEing. As you settle in this energy, remember what it feels like. Give it a one word label. This little ol' label will help you get there next time; perhaps even without washing a pot.
Let me know how this exercise goes for you. I'm really curious to see if others relax the same way I do.
Remember, even the angels relax a bit now and then by fluffing up their wings and halo, or pot scrubbing...
It's the 'little' things... May 25 2017 2 Comments
Sorry for me being a bit AWOL recently, but doing three shows back to back took its toll on us. However, without further adieu, The Gang popped in the middle of the night last night and began filling my heart with such joy it's impossible to not share.
It's the little things that not only keep you going, but fuel you.
As an example, my folks return from a 30 day wandering trip in Spain, Italy and Switzerland. They will be snug in our home this evening for hopefully a delicious (new recipe) meal, plenty of vino (It IS National Wine Day after all) and lotsa laughter, love and great stories.
I look forward to every juicy morsel.
It's the little things.
A client who has become a friend popped in on her personal trek last night for dinner. While she only stayed for a few hours, it was lovely to just BE with each other.
It's the little things.
I awoke this morning to the rain softly falling, the birds welcoming in a new day and the 'kittens' snuggling in close.
It's the little things.
Yesterday I arranged some M&Ms in the faery villages in the backyard only to have the M&MS GONE in a matter of hours. I imagine the fae taking them and having a party. My husband says the squirrels got them.
It's the little things.
It's having a rule with my husband that we don't talk work until we kiss. Even if it is a virtual kiss.
It's the little things.
It's playing with Gabi and chatting with her as we go for our daily magical adventures and seeing all sorts of things from the very real to the very real, but energy creatures.
It's the little things.
It's conversing with my truly amazing children via text to say I Love You because I can and sharing new recipes or tempting pictures of new recipes completed.
It's the little things.
It's chatting with The Gang. Listening to their pushing and often prodding to step out to share their stories, guidance and humor to clients and future students.
It's the little things.
It's these little things, or not so little things that when categorized into one word that spells out
'Princess and the Pea' May 09 2017
Do you remember the fairy tale, Princess and the Pea? I had one of those moments not too long ago...
The other week I was out simply pulling up some dandy lions. Since I wasn't digging or doing anything laborious, I kept on my sturdy flip flops and pulled up loads of weeds and continued on my merry way. Two days later I was at our beach home and my foot began to bother me... a lot.
While I saw a splinter; in there, the little guy just would not leave. It appeared to be quite happy taking up space in my body and was in for the duration. There wasn't enough soaking in warm salt water or peroxide that would convince it to leave the premises. I knew it entered on the Day of The Dandy Lion (we have many plants with tiny little thorns in the yard)
It quickly became an annoying little bugger.
I continued on. I performed massive amounts of gardening as the pile of garbage bags filled with weeds will attest and much to the chagrin of our local trash collectors. Each night I would soak my foot. It WAS annoying. Certain shoes seemed to annoy it more. It was red and slightly warm. Walking on the sand was not as joyous as it normally is.
FINALLY it popped out Thursday night; over five days after its entry. It quickly fell onto the carpet never to be seen again, so the picture is a pen mark on my finger to show you exactly how tiny this little guy was. It WAS tiny! Its message had been delivered and lesson learned so it was now ready to be a distant memory.
But it let its presence be known in a BIG way. The lesson? Wear shoes all the time while gardening obviously. However, the analogy of the story, is that if something is not to your liking, the angels will provide a way to slow you down, re-evaluate, heal so you may move forward with the utmost grace, joy and of course love. My lesson? BE in the moments of BEing more often. Allow all to emerge. Do not force anything in or in this case, out. All works itself out in that blessed phrase, 'Divine Timing'.
It's when those seemingly little things can wreak havoc in our lives because we begin to focus on their annoying presence, much like a splinter. When we allow ourselves to BE, we give ourselves permission to pay attention to nuances and heed their warning. Give the 'splinter' a chance to leave and not become a problematic boulder in the scheme of things.
How to accomplish the removal of the pea? One can attempt to ignore it, but when did ignoring something solve anything? It doesn't and you know this well. Look at the lesson you are experiencing. How would you do things differently? Does this little inconvenience bring to light an aspect of you loving yourself more in a different way? (for this scenario, loving my feet more by wearing proper shoes is a no brainer and Honey Guy would testify to this in a nano-second).
I honestly love the messages and little lessons (pun intended) The Gang provides on a daily basis. Daily? Absolutely. It's in the nuances of our daily life that shifts happen and we can become aware of them all and BE.
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!

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.
It's a bit of an Angel Rant, so bear with me October 13 2015
As you may have picked up by now, I'm not super regular with my blog posts. Everyone is busy, including me, and I only write a new post when I feel there is something important to say.
Now is that time...
I'm sure you have heard of the phrase 'unconditional love'.
Yeeeaahhhh... this is so indicative of our society today. Humans have made love so conditional we feel compelled to say unconditional.
Phrases such as:
I love you, please be careful
If only you would/could....
I'd love you more if ...
I'd have love if I were prettier/handsomer, richer, thinner....and so on.
What other conditional phrases can you think of? Ones you may have heard? Or ones you may have even uttered yourself without realizing it?
You see, love is love. Love is pure. Love is freeing. Love is recognizing another for who they are and only wanting the best for them and this is accomplished by reflecting back to them their true essence. It is not accomplished by putting conditions on them ultimately making them feel inferior. Love has NO conditions. Do the angels ever say they will love you more if ....?
Of course not. So why do humans?
Join with me and starting today and place no conditions on the love you give. By doing so, I promise the love you receive will be just as pure.
Well THAT was rather freeing. Spread the word of LOVE! Thanks for reading and look forward to hearing of your responses.
