What happens when you Beloved 'pet' leaves? January 23 2019 2 Comments
The Back Story
Many of you know, some of you may not... but now you shall.
Our Beloved girl, Gabi, has left us.
My husband were on our first vacation (more than two consecutive days) in over six years; the verdict is still out long ago, but I digress. We returned on a Friday and had intended to spend a day or two extra with my folks.
Gabi had other plans.
She was staying with my truly amazing sister and as par for her regular morning routine, came downstairs, went outside, laid down and couldn't get back up. That is the text we received.
My heart plummented.
We had separate cars and away we went, back north to BE with her. I knew from the get go it was to be her last physical day with us. We arrived at the 24 ER Vet with not so good news.
Cancer was everywhere in her abdominal area. This is what caused the drama in the morning. A tumor had ruptured on her spleen and there was now internal bleeding. Stable at the moment, but who knows when the next rupture would happen; for it was inevitable.
After MUCH heart searching, chatting with her and more, we did the most humane thing. For IF she had come home, there could be no more swamping expeditions. She could leave us without a moment's notice and go while we were doing errands, sleeping, etc. It helped tremendously, tremendously when students reached out to share that Gabi had already visited them and told them it was her last day and there was nothing we could have done to prevent this. Gabi went to them BEFORE we knew anything. She was smart that way....
How we are moving on from our 'pet' leaving us
A pet can be just that a pet. A four legged critter that is dependent on your for food, shelter and its general well being. I know you, and that is not how you would view it, and neither do we. A 'pet' in our mind happens to have four legs (or two, if it's a bird), but a member of the family. It's a soul you confide in, explore with and attempt to BE the person that they see in you.
It's Love at the core. Never pressure to BE anything but yourself.
Gabi's departure was quick. Yes, I had inklings, she told me, but it was one of those rare times I really wish I wasn't so intuitive and hoped beyond hoped that I was wrong.
It's not been easy. As you too can easily attest if you've ever been in this situation.
What did I do? I painted, no not like Picasso, but walls; lots of walls. I needed something somewhat mindless that allowed me to absorb, shift energy and meditate while being 'productive'. I re-created the healing space where all client work happens. I painted our family room and have plans for other rooms as well.
I ventured out for a 'magical' walk within days of her leaving. My husband was grieving as well - for it is grief, but we were each attempting to be strong for the other. Off to the woods I went. I screamed, I cried, I got angry. Hopefully all out of earshot of any other human. My legs were heavy. It was difficult to walk even what was considered our 'short' walk (3+ miles)
The first week was tough. I cannot lie. Even our cats were in mourning. They could be found frequently laying in 'Gabi's' Room - designated as this was the room she always scampered off to to enjoy her treats. Flowers and cards and sweet memories from students, clients and followers of Gabi and me. We were beyond touched that we had through by simply sharing, had touched so many of you.
The healing continues
The painting has slowed down.
I've taken two more walks in the woods. One with a friend; we both got teary at memories, but they were good cries. We sat near the river, in the snow, like children and just listened and observed.
That was healing in itself; allowing ourselves to BE.
I went for the most recent walk just yesterday. I had a productive morning filled with clients and possible business dealings. Blog posting was attempted but kept getting stalled; it simply wasn't flowing. I was told in no uncertain terms to go for a walk.
Meh. It was cold and I felt somewhat whiny.
THEY, Sandalphon, Auriel, Thuriel; oh heck the entire Gang were persistent... Get Outside!
Finally I complied and headed off. It was getting late and the sun was far past its zenith, but I kept going. Once the woods were entered, I realized getting to the river was not possible due to the lighting. Maybe turn around now? Maybe go to her watering hole?
Eh, I'm turning around.
Lo and behold Gabi appeared, very excited!
'Come on I want to show you something cool!"
I kept trudging along. Upon entering the watering hole area, there stood a beautiful doe. While this may not seem remarkable in itself, it is. NEVER had we seen deer this close in these woods and we had traversed them often enough! Certainly we had seen the back side of many as they ran off, but never as close as this and this still and this curious about what was happening.
But wait, there's more! There was not one, not two, but THREE does! All stopped to look and convey a message. We had a 'moment' of soul exchange. Photos were able to be taken as proof and off they went.
A few more tears were shed. At least the ugly crying had stopped; so there is improvement.
The next steps since Gabi's Departure
She had made a promise to me and me to her.
Her promise is to BE always with me and may come back in dog form so stay tuned. She will always protect me; in fact I heard her growl while in the kitchen yesterday. Not sure whom she was miffed at, but I gratefully accepted it.
My promise? To complete her book, The Gabi Life. For those of you that have been with me, like foreva, may recall this book. No publishing house desired it, so I took it as a sign it wasn't worth pursuing.
Back to the book we go. Why do I know this? It's back in the forefront of things to accomplish. People must remember, Grace Always Begins Inside. There are a few more projects to complete, but then I dive fur and all back into it. Feel free to nudge me periodically...
Until then, embrace each day as the miracle it is.
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
Want to connect with these two dynamos more easily? I can help. Consider signing up for the Authorization Course; it’s only open for enrollment once a year and now is the time! If you have any questions about The Course, Please contact me.

Mercury is revving up its last dance for 2017 November 29 2017
While Mercury does not officially go 'backwards' (retrograde) until December 3, it appears it is already affecting many via their energy levels, sensitivities and oh so much more.
While I can certainly lay the tiredness completely at my feet with the crazy schedule we took on this past fall, but that is just not it completely. Otherwise I would be the only one doing the Weary Dance.
Many may lay claim to the vast amount of richer food eaten over the holiday weekend...Guilty here too. We love the holidays in our home; playing games, nibbling, laughing, cavorting, yelling at football teams, drinking and more.
However, that is not the only culprit either.
Oh, so is Mercury doing its dance a bit early? Think so. Before you start panicking and desiring to put the pillow over your head until December 22, think of it this way.
Mercury in Retrograde is a gift.
Yes you read correctly, a gift.
You see, when Mercury does go retrograde, it is a golden moment to ponder, reflect and learn. We've ALL done stuff we aren't proud of. It's part of the Human Dance. Now is the time to reflect on how you may address a similar situation. Perhaps you would be a bit more non-judgmental. Perhaps you would be a bit more loving (especially towards self) Perhaps...
Mercury in Retrograde is great at triggering emotions and bringing them to the surface. You know those 'things' that we think are long forgotten, but are really just under the surface waiting for the opportunity to pop so they may heal. Through that healing we are given another opportunity to love on ourselves a bit more. This is a golden opportunity to sit quietly. Is it a real fear or imaginary fear? Certainly walking down a dark alley at night is not the best choice (legitimate fear). Compare it to feelings of lack. While that may certainly feel real, it's more of a thought pattern vs. a real threat to your existence. Can you see the difference between the two?
You don't have to find the initial time it happened in order for it to heal completely, but sit with that pattern from a non-judgmental viewing box. You will begin to realize that exists mostly in your mind which can keep you stuck and immobile. Now is the time to softly release it through your acknowledgment of it and let love flow more freely.
Remember, nobody gets a ribbon if they get to the finish line first (death). It is truly about the journey and how each turn is handled; with fear or with love.
The choice is yours.
This Mercury in Retrograde has many of the earmarks of offering all sorts of these kinds of situations.
Lovely, just what I NEED (like a hole in the head) you're thinking.
Yes, just what you need. Remember, 2017 is The Year of Transparency. This is the last hurrah to BE transparent with yourself. What do you desire? How do you truly wish to live? If you aren't truthful with yourself, how can you expect others to follow suit?
This, once more (feeling like a broken record here) sets the stage for 2018, The Year of Love.
It is time to LOVE yourself more.
It is time for LOVE to win.
It is time for LOVE to prevail.
Thanks Mercury in Retrograde!
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!
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.
Every now and then, an angel must relax... August 14 2017
You're busy, I'm busy, we're all busy!
At times being busy is lovely. At times being busy is mind numbing (helps to keep our monkey minds at bay). At times being busy is productive - 'I got _________ so much done!'
And then there are times you need to rest.
For those of you following me rather actively, know that I've taken the summer off... kinda. Even my husband said I was to sit on the beach and do nothing. Even clients were telling me I looked wiped. I listened as best I could!
Funny thing that has happened while taking time off; I've created four new products! Yes, four. Some shall debut this weekend and the rest within a couple of weeks. This isn't about plugging great new stuff, but rather a funny; take time off to create?
It's in those quiet moments of sitting on the beach, chatting with my summer neighbors and of course the cats and Gabi that new ideas filtered through. Why? Because I wasn't busy!
It's in those moments when we allow ourselves to BE that we get great clarity. We can truly see where this journey is leading us. We can take time off to giggle, meander, ponder, and revel in ducks parading down the street daily. It's those little things that help to juice one up. Through that juicing, enters Gabriel and a platter of ideas are presented. Not all will be ones you wish to be active on, but then again... who knows?
Taking time out daily to rejuvenate is imperative for all. This allows one to not get sucked into drama; whether it be personal, local, regional, national or international. It doesn't mean you can't act upon those things, but you can do so with better clarity as to why you get involved and at what time.
Peace does start within. Take time out daily to connect with your peace and the rest does follow.

Full Moon, Lion's Gate and Solar Eclipse... OH MY! August 07 2017 2 Comments
The time is here.
High octane energies are here to help us push through that last bit of labor pains to BE.
In fact today was partial eclipse here on the East Coast.
Here's a list of events and their corresponding dates in chronological order:
- Full Moon (Sturgeon Moon) ~ August 7, 2017
- Lion's Gate ~ August 8, 2017
- New Moon ~ August 21, 2017
- Total Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017
What's this all mean and...
What to do and how to best prepare.
The Lion's Gate
offers a prime moment to review what matters to you and why. When answering the whys, there is truly only one simple question; Does it align with your essence? Today of all days this is the perfect time to set aside time to meditate with an awareness of the universe at large and to allow yourself to slip into the sublime energies that this day offers. Call on Big Mike first will give you the protection and security so you can allow yourself to be wrapped up around them. Set the intention to get clarity of where your life is going and for additional insights of timeline, how, etc. This is not a HOW meditation, but one meant for encouragement and empowerment. If you ask, ideas will be offered. Perhaps not at that exact moment, but then again, you may be quite surprised.
Remember, when any act is done through love, all is possible.
The Double Whammy Event on 8/21/17
How ironic that the new moon and the total solar eclipse are on the same day. Talk about heralding in New Beginnings. Eclipses are known to upset the apple cart, everything goes topsy turvy momentarily as the world stops and watches. This is the perfect time to get rid of the unwanted from your life. On the reverse side of that coin; this is magical moment to reset your inner workings and set new goals/targets that are generated from the Heart. No need for wishing to win the lottery unless there is a great reason for doing so beyond greed.
There is GREAT power in this eclipse... it starts in the 33d state (Oregon) and ends on the 33d parallel in the Carolinas. The number '3' is long associated with the Ascended Masters. It is time to master your desires and why you desire them. Oh the irony... I just glanced at the clock and the time? 3:33pm.
One of the cool things about eclipses is that you don't necessarily feel or see its effect on you perhaps for months. This is not an instant POW of energy (although many of you shall feel it and already are), but the aftermath of this total eclipse will be felt well into 2018.
How to Make it Work for You
I love list making. It makes me feel oh so special when I can cross it off mostly, but it greatly helps me stay somewhat organized. You see, I can get distracted easily on any given day, but as usual, I digress....
Your list? Here are some ideas:
- What you would like to 'accomplish' the remainder of the year and beyond.
- Why you would like to have these come to fruition. This is a BIG one, so spend some time with it.
- What sources could help you get there (pop down whatever comes to mind)
At this point in time, the force is indeed with you. Your manifesting prowess is at all time high. I've forewarned this; be every mindful of what you think, say and do! A thought is a thought is a thought, or is it? You can retrain your mind to think more positively vs. realistic. You are more connected to this beautiful universe and its energies now than ever before. Call upon them to ask for assistance and allow yourself to receive.
Also during this time you will become more inspired with possible new ideas and projects. I can speak from experience on this one. The energy has been building for a month or so now and since, my ahem, Down Time at the shore I've conjured up at least four new products that will be debuting this fall or sooner. Step out of the logical of 'What Makes Sense' it's an easier trap to fall into than one may understand. Go with the flow as the saying goes and you will be quite surprised at the trajectory you head off to.
Rituals you may do during this time:
- Place those crystals outside! This energy is simply too juicy to not allow your crystals to bask in it as well and thereby help you along the way.
- Allow yourself to experience consciousness moments throughout your day. Who hasn't uttered the phrase, 'Where did this day go?' at some point? Me included. When this happens, you've spent that time on auto pilot and weren't able to be conscious about what matters to you.
- If you chose to initiate a ritual, light a sacred candle. May I suggest Haniel; The Angel of Manifestation. He helps you to create your version of Heaven on Earth Reality.
- Take time out daily for you. Spend time in nature along with a journal and just start writing. It may not make sense at first, but in time you too shall be in the flow of things.
Thank you, as always for reading and posting your comments below as well as sharing with whomever you think will benefit.
How many times have you driven by something, say a home and never noticed the nuances? These nuances are only noticed when you walk by and may even find yourself muttering 'When did they do that?' to find out months ago!
When we go flying by something, anything, we miss the joy of the journey.
While I was on a video call the other night with the Authorization Students, I shared with them our daily 'event' here on island ... The Duck Parade. They walk down our street every evening, jump into the bay, swim to one of the smaller islands to sleep for the night. They reverse the process every morning. I was sharing their evening stroll with the group - it makes me giggle and wondered out loud why they rarely, if ever, fly.
One very smart goddess responded in a nano-second -
'Because they'll miss the joy of the journey.'
Smack my head and point out the obvious why don't you!
While these ducks may have been trained by their moms to walk this route daily as they were perhaps too young to fly initially, they have now obviously chosen to walk. They have created a daily sacred ritual; going off and coming on the island. Are they setting up their own energy grid? Perhaps.
Often they walk smack dab down the middle of our street. Other times, they will meander in the yards. It's never a straight march. They stop. They chat amongst themselves. They gauge what is going on in front as well as behind them. It's very endearing, but what a lesson ~ enjoy your surroundings!
It IS about the journey, not the destination! By rushing to the finish line, and 'being first' you will receive no ribbon, medal or kudos from anyone. You very well will miss beautiful nuances, people and moments along the way due to the rushing.
Why not savor the journey? Is it always easy? Hardly. But once you begin to slow down and embrace the moment, no matter for how long or short, your system does slow down and who knows, maybe you'll get to see the ducks walking down your street too.
Please feel free to leave your comments below and share the Chatter. Many thanks ahead of time.
The Door has opened, will you step through? July 18 2017
Yesterday was 7 - 7 - 2017.
A door opened as an opportunity for all to step through and reclaim their birthright; their true divinity. This is not the divinity that society has forced upon you (you know, all those lovely shouls), but the divinity of what gets your soul juiced up. What offers those exciting flutters of recognition and knowing when you think about it? What soothes and yet excites your soul?
Yeah, THAT Gateway.
It all started waaay back with the last Full Moon, The THUNDER Moon and boy did that moon come in with a BIG Bang! Many clients were crawling over themselves scrambling to get answers of why they were now being put up against something that seemed insurmountable. Of course it wasn't surmountable at all; it was all a pre-conceived notion of what is or is not surmountable.
You have the power and the knowledge to get through all you desire to get through. However it takes great patience. Something humans are not well known in practicing.
As you know from a previous post, Big Thunder brought in the potential of upheaval and it certainly did for many. The energy 'settled' temporarily and yesterday was the Day of Seven. In fact, when you add up the days; 7 + 1+ 7 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 25 which breaks down to 7. However when you separate the numbers and focus on them as the individual number; 2, 1, 7 and 0, it takes on an entirely new agenda with the '7' taking center stage as it shows itself three times.
(1) ~Time to embrace the Oneness of ALL. A great book that has been out for years that embodies this philosophy is Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard. HIGHLY recommend, but it is not meant for a speed reading. It is meant to savor and ponder.
The '0' represents completion; you are ready to move forward with greater love and clarity of all, including self.
'2' takes on the energy of faith and patience. This of course is frustrating especially if you have seen snippets of the finished line and are in a hurry to get there. I GET that. I've seen where Angel Chatter is going for years; you think by now I'd be there. OH, but looking back I was so NOT ready then. More of me certainly is now and therefore more opportunities are coming knocking at my door.
The '7' is a fun number for it screams - think of starting a spiritual based practice! Helllooo... are you listening? Whether you decide to start or follow through on a business idea that is spiritually related, or not, it IS time to step more visibly into your spiritual side. NO more hiding allowed. This is exactly why the tuition for the first year launch of The Authorization Course was $777.
How to get through it all easier? Stay in your center. It's the ego that creates the drama and that drama can certainly create unease, feelings of unworthiness and more kaka than one can shake a stick at. It's very easy to 'slip' into that kind of crap because it can be quite overwhelming. I get it! But you are better than that stupid ol' ego.
Centered? Are you kidding me? (yes I can hear the grumbling from here). Yes, your center. Your heart. Find a new activity that brings you joy. New? Yes, simply because it will force you to focus and get you out of your way by trying something new. More training of a healing modality, knitting, dancing, cooking, woodworking, chess. The list is endless, but find something new for you to do helps you out of the rut, brings in more joy and that of course is the ultimate goal.
Hope this helps, really I do.

Balance... July 15 2017 2 Comments
So many are in a slight kerfuffle... you know that state where you seem to be put on hold, in a funk, nothing is going according to plan, and the Oh Woe Is Me Syndrome is knocking at your door.
This is part of the birthing process and you are most definitely experiencing labor pains. While not giving birth in the literal sense, you are very clearly undergoing a re-birth of you. You are coming back to your true essence; your divine BEing.
It's about balance you see. Nothing is ever all lollipops and unicorns. If it were, simply by being human you would cease to relish in all the unicorns surrounding you. It's the balance of the light and dark and acknowledging that both exist. All humans have gunk; it's called karma. The karma shows itself in a myriad of ways; relationships, repetitive patterns and the gunk in general that could stall you for days and if left unattended, months or years.
Don't go there please. Embrace the balance.
You ARE a BEing of Light otherwise you wouldn't be reading this and gathering a bit more understanding of self. It's through this understand and acknowledging and LOVING both ends of the spectrum that all can more easily fall into place for you. You know, those things you desire in the deepest core of your heart.
It's about balance. Even your daily universe has this; day and night. Something as simple as the 'sun going down or rising' is shown to you daily; the balance of life. You give no thought to this as it is natural, right? Your life is no different. In each life balance exists. It's all how you embrace both sides of the coin so to speak and allow one to go a bit deeper to unleash what has been hidden for so long.
It's in the dark of the night that more is revealed. It is in the depth of your soul that truth lives. Why? For it is YOU and only YOU. BE still within. The more energy you spend in attempting to squelch these energies, the more uncomfortable it gets. The lid that you have kept on you to 'fit in' has at the very least become uncorked. Stop trying to prevent this beautiful movement forward.
It's time the lid is thrown off allowing you to emerge in all your glory, including the gunk. Remember, nobody is perfect. Far from it. For in that beautiful imperfection lies the beauty.
Embrace the balance.
Embrace the beauty.
Embrace the LOVE.
Below are photos taken on the same day on our little island. Nature shows us the truth. Light and Dark. It's not Light vs. Dark. Acknowledging that both exist will propel you quicker on your chosen path than you may realize or can imagine.
To add a bit of fun... catch the gentleman upside down in the water... Embracing the light in the most joy-filled of ways! On the flip side, there is great beauty in the dark as well.
It's all about balance.

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
