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.

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

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.
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!
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!
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.
Shifting into 2015 ~ The Year of Abundance December 02 2014Many of you have asked what is in store for next year. Abundance is the theme, but it's up to you what form the abundance takes...
What can I expect during meditation? May 13 2014
We all meditate to bring our conscious self closer to the angels and source. It’s a way to take a break and come back to our heart and when done consistently, we can take our meditative practice “off the cushion,” so to speak, and make it a part of our daily lives.
Part of what a regular meditation practice offers is spiritual insight through symbols, signs, and colors. For example, many of you have inquired where the symbols on our Archangel Oracle Cards came from. The answer? They were given and received during meditation. A friend and I sat down one evening and channeled the symbols in a matter of two hours.
And the same can happen with you.
What propels you to meditate? Is it simply taking five minutes for yourself and concentrating on your breath? Is it to gain insight and knowledge from the angels? Is it to garner advice on life in the here and now?
You can also feel an expansion of your soul during meditation that allows colors, scents, images, and yes even symbols to come to you. The more adept you become at meditating, the deeper you allow yourself to go and to expand beyond the room you are sitting in.
Have you ever felt like you were flying during meditation? As you fly, do you look down and see the world below you? This is what is commonly known as “astral travel,” and it allows you to gain even deeper insights to the universe.
Before meditating or beginning any spiritual work, call on Archangel Michael to protect your energetic space. Simply ask him and his legions to stand shoulder to shoulder to protect your space during meditation, which will prevent lower energies from disturbing your work. By calling on Big Mike, you make your space protected from these kinds of energies and this allows you to go more freely into a meditative state.
Starting a meditative practice or continuing one is a life-long affair with you. It can take you to where no man has gone before and beyond. Expect the unexpected and life as you know it will become more glorious.
Use this Askfirmation:
Why is it so easy for me to have a profound meditative practice?
Now allow the angels to answer and support you.
