'Princess and the Pea' May 09 2017
Do you remember the fairy tale, Princess and the Pea? I had one of those moments not too long ago...
The other week I was out simply pulling up some dandy lions. Since I wasn't digging or doing anything laborious, I kept on my sturdy flip flops and pulled up loads of weeds and continued on my merry way. Two days later I was at our beach home and my foot began to bother me... a lot.
While I saw a splinter; in there, the little guy just would not leave. It appeared to be quite happy taking up space in my body and was in for the duration. There wasn't enough soaking in warm salt water or peroxide that would convince it to leave the premises. I knew it entered on the Day of The Dandy Lion (we have many plants with tiny little thorns in the yard)
It quickly became an annoying little bugger.
I continued on. I performed massive amounts of gardening as the pile of garbage bags filled with weeds will attest and much to the chagrin of our local trash collectors. Each night I would soak my foot. It WAS annoying. Certain shoes seemed to annoy it more. It was red and slightly warm. Walking on the sand was not as joyous as it normally is.
FINALLY it popped out Thursday night; over five days after its entry. It quickly fell onto the carpet never to be seen again, so the picture is a pen mark on my finger to show you exactly how tiny this little guy was. It WAS tiny! Its message had been delivered and lesson learned so it was now ready to be a distant memory.
But it let its presence be known in a BIG way. The lesson? Wear shoes all the time while gardening obviously. However, the analogy of the story, is that if something is not to your liking, the angels will provide a way to slow you down, re-evaluate, heal so you may move forward with the utmost grace, joy and of course love. My lesson? BE in the moments of BEing more often. Allow all to emerge. Do not force anything in or in this case, out. All works itself out in that blessed phrase, 'Divine Timing'.
It's when those seemingly little things can wreak havoc in our lives because we begin to focus on their annoying presence, much like a splinter. When we allow ourselves to BE, we give ourselves permission to pay attention to nuances and heed their warning. Give the 'splinter' a chance to leave and not become a problematic boulder in the scheme of things.
How to accomplish the removal of the pea? One can attempt to ignore it, but when did ignoring something solve anything? It doesn't and you know this well. Look at the lesson you are experiencing. How would you do things differently? Does this little inconvenience bring to light an aspect of you loving yourself more in a different way? (for this scenario, loving my feet more by wearing proper shoes is a no brainer and Honey Guy would testify to this in a nano-second).
I honestly love the messages and little lessons (pun intended) The Gang provides on a daily basis. Daily? Absolutely. It's in the nuances of our daily life that shifts happen and we can become aware of them all and BE.
When a statue talks to you...are you crazy or... May 05 2017
This guy... what a boss! Never let anyone tell you inanimate objects, especially sacred ones, don't have an opinion.
Don't believe me?
We were living in Massachusetts and a local store was going out of business. I had purchased a few sundry things there previously and simply loved the energy and her entire line of products. Everything was Asian, ancient and had an energy of being sacred behind it. A truly magical store and one I regret not seeing flourish.
Off I went to wander and explore; not intending to purchase a thing. It was more of a scouting expedition.
As I was meandering around the store, the statue below started yakking at me and yakking LOUDLY. It wanted to come home with me. I try, repeat try to be of the mindset that everything has a spot or a 'home' before purchasing especially one of this stature and energetic presence. I couldn't think of one right away, so I walked out. Yes I walked out initially without the statue.
BEFORE I got home, I thought of a great in the family room. That was an ideal spot! (or so I thought)
Turn around I did...
I entered the store and approached the statue. I swear it smiled at me! Yes, all these years later I still remember the event.
I purchased it and gently placed it in the back seat of the car and began driving home.
'By the way, I don't wish to be placed where you think. I want to go on the mantle.'
WHAT? Did that thing in the back seat just start talking to me?
'Yes, I did and I am going on the mantle.'
I now drop my mouth and start literally arguing with an inanimate object that is lying on the backset of my car.
'No, the mantle isn't wide enough for you.'
'I'm going on the mantle so I can bless all who enter.'
'Nice idea, but it's too narrow.'
'I'm going on the mantle.'
And this continued for the eight miles left of our journey home.
I placed it where I thought it ought to go. It didn't look right.
Where did it end up?
The mantle. It looked perfect there. Everybody loved it there and yes, it did indeed bless all who entered.
After we moved from that home, it then wished to be placed on top of a particular cabinet. It's a rather small cabinet and always finds a small wall to be up against. Buddha LOVES this set up. It/He LOVES the crystal it holds. It/He LOVES the candle holder in front.
When we moved from that house, much went into storage, including Buddha, cabinet and all. I have no idea who he argued with in the four years it was in storage, but that is their problem, not mine. We moved into our New Digs and once more a small wall was found for the small cabinet along with the crystal and candle and of course Buddha.
Peace and blessings reign once more and as the saying goes:
All is right with the world.
The Art of Allowing May 04 2017 1 Comment
The very word allowing is rather empowering as I recently experienced.
You know the dance; having to do so much on your own and if somebody offers to help you find yourself going in behind them to 'fix it'.
yeaaahhh... me too.
My AHA Event happened a couple of months ago while in Charlotte, NC for the SHIFT Conference. This was the first show that Honey Guy wasn't able to be with me for not only the physical love support but all the Sherpa Duties he carries so well. I had three lovely goddesses all ready to go on the day of, unfortunately all were occupied at check in and unload time for me.
I had the entire day ahead of me, so there was no rushing involved... really! I was being slow and methodical, just like the turtle.
As I was unpacking the car, a young man goes by and says he is a volunteer and can he help me.
'No, I've got it, but thanks!' With a big smile on my face.
'You are a strong woman who isn't used to help. Will you allow me to help you?'
BAM, I did an immediate 180 and said YES, I will allow you to help me. Help he did for the next three hours.
Allow. So very powerful. For the remainder of the weekend every time I saw him, I pointed him out and shared the story ending with 'I allowed him to help me!' I savored that energy and you know what? It was more powerful and poignant than ever. I relaxed. I let go of the reigns and allowed assistance in with a BIGGER smile and open heart.
What will you allow in your life today? While we are fully aware of lower energies, let's focus on the GREAT energies that are also afoot and allow them to enter into your world to assist, expand, explore, support, comfort, and even periodically wing slap. You can take some weight off your shoulders.
Not all assistance comes from The Gang. Many are disguised as a human as I now fully embrace.
Moon River and all it portends... April 26 2017
I was VERY restless last night. The song, Moon River kept playing in my head...
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
The signs we get.... April 20 2017 3 Comments
I was blessed to have three of my grandparents live well into their nineties. Each one of the was incredible in their own right. I loved them all dearly.
As an example, Grandpa would have us out watching the ants play baseball, watching submarine races and keep us enthralled with stories of life in the early times in New York City.
Grandma, his wife, was the spitfire; small but mighty and very cognizant until the very end. She was the cog in the family, always there with great hugs, laughter and tidbits of wisdom, when you were ready to listen.
My other Grandma, Mary, is the one I wish to share about today. The last months of her life were confusing. Without drudging up family drama, nobody is quite sure of her last days other than she had a roof over her head, plenty of food, etc. She was taken care of, but we are also fairly certain there was 'mischief' afoot; that's me being nice about her care giver.
I was her first grandchild and the only for over seven years. We built a bond that was unbreakable that lasted a lifetime and now apparently beyond...
Grandma died many years ago and as with the passing or skipping over of our loved ones, we mourned. We cried. We laughed. We questioned. She skipped over in the month of June and by September, she began leaving signs for us.
The first gift was found in the center of our upstairs hallway. Right smack dab in the center of the hall. The hall we all traversed on a regular basis going to and fro to bed. On the day in question, I was walking from the office to our bedroom and lo and behold there was a very small Mary Medallion (one of the blue ones). I quickly said 'Hi Grandma' and put it in a chest she had given me from Poland to keep it safe.
Second gift; I shared the story with my mom a few months later when she was visiting and went to show her. The Mary Medallion had reproduced! There were now TWO medallions, but this one was the solid silver one in the photo. Before you question, the chest is rather empty with the exception of gifts from her.
Third gift; I have a Kwan Yin statue on my nightstand. Over one year after the second gift, I found a Mary Medallion was now safely nestled in Kwan Yin's hand! This is the second blue one.
Fourth gift; fast forward three or four years. We had just moved into our New Digs. We had been able to put much of the house in order and were now in the Lower Level (aka finished basement) and putting away all things Angel Chatter. My husband and I were chatting away about the house that was quickly becoming our home, our dreams of the future and just general talk. He became very quiet. As I glanced across the room to him, he was looking at something in his hand.
'I just found a Mary Medallion on the rug. It wasn't there before.'
'Did you say HI to Grandma?'
This is the fourth medallion in my hand - the very opaque one. I figure she wished to see our new home and make sure once again all was well in our world.
Fifth gift; Mom has now found one in the middle of their bed AFTER she made it!
You see, our loved ones often visit us. All of us. Sometimes they leave a token of their love; the Mary Medallion as an example. Some leave an aroma in their wake that we associate with them. Some may allow you to feel their presence in the form of a hug, a thought, a gentle breeze or a song. Sometimes we are trying so desperately to hear from them, we inadvertently don't allow these gifts to come forward in our consciousness.
Relax! Allow yourself to receive these messages. They will come in a variety of ways and each one is meant to catch your attention. They are only a whisper away.
Have you had a visit? I would love to hear about it below! You can always chat with Zadkiel to help clear the way a bit better for you to better see, feel, hear, know of their visits.
Guess what? I do NOT smudge! April 11 2017 3 Comments
I do not smudge at all any more. I use to and did for years...until we moved to Baltimore.
Here's the story:
We moved into a 'new' home in the Baltimore area. It was gorgeous. It was nestled in a grove of trees in a very small and homey neighborhood. We were renting, being new to the entire area, we weren't sure where we wished to plop permanently (as you will read, it's a GREAT thing we rented). As a welcome gift, our landlord left us not only a bottle of wine but a rather large smudge stick! Did she know me or what?
Typically, I would have jumped right in to smudge the entire house. The Gang, however, kept me busy doing MANY things; unpacking, getting settled and more. It was months and months before that smudge stick got used.
When I did finally get around to smudging, I followed all the 'rules of engagement':
- Started on the top floor
- Started on the top floor in far left corner
- Worked counter clockwise
- Took my time and lingered when necessary
- Repeated on the next two lower levels (basements count too whether they are finished or not!)
Funny thing happened afterwards. While the house felt GREAT for a day or so, it felt terrible within four days. Yes really terrible.
I let the energy settle and observed.
At that time a 'stray dog' (his term, not ours) came to live with us... a friend of one of our daughters who was very troubled. While his bedroom was in the basement (very nicely furnished by the way), he would report hearing voices and footsteps regularly going past his bedroom door.
Even the cats, Linus and Schroeder, would only go downstairs to use their bathroom and scoot back upstairs as quickly as their cute little bodies would carry them.
I saged again and this time really focused on the basement/lower level.
It got worse. Again. Voices increased, footsteps louder and now it was affecting the entire household. Everyone was getting agitated.
Focusing on anything was next to impossible.
This cycle continued a few more rounds; just had to be sure and up until this adventure, saging had always worked!
Turns out the land was cursed. In fact, if you notice I put the term 'new' in quotes at the top of this post. This is because the first house was built in the 1980s and had burned to the ground. The owner rebuilt it. While is was gorgeous and flowed beautifully, the enery was off. Very off. It was cursed via Native Americans (not sure what tribe, didn't ask). You see, Native Americans hold saging sacred and it enhances their energy and connection to the beyond. So every time I saged, I was literally empowering them!
I saged no more. We left that house within a few months of the AHA and never looked back.
NOW I only use my Sacred Mister, Clearing. This is infused with not only the amethyst crystal, but Archangel Zadkiel's energy which is aligned with the Violet Flame. All transmutative energies. Taking that kaka and putting it back to its original state of purity. Nobody gets empowered in a not so nice way with this baby and ALL feel better! Plug for a product? Sure, but as you hopefully know by now, I believe in the power of each product I create and use them all myself. In fact I'm often their guinea pig!
Please think about how the saging affects you before and afterwards; even a few days or weeks afterwards. Does it still feel yummy? If it does, you are safe. If you feel any of the symptoms above, please discontinue.
As always, I look forward to reading your comments below!
Much love and GREAT clearing!
One never knows... April 07 2017 2 Comments
We left our home yesterday ahead of schedule and started our trek towards Cincinnati for the Victory of Light Expo. Everything was going swimmingly well. The rain clouds had broken and rays of sunshine seemed to lead the way. We were enjoying the easy conversation of playing catch up as we had been both slammed all week with a variety of things. As always, I placed Big Mike around our car:
Archangel Michael to the Right
Archangel Michael to the Left
Archangel Michael to the Front
Archangel Michael to the Back
Archangel Michael Above
Archangel Michael Below
Please protect this car wherever it goes
About 25 minutes into our trek, Honey Guy realizes he forgot his medication.
A quick run down - could he go without it? Ummmm NO. I would be the proverbial wreck all weekend and worse than a bear to honey in monitoring his food intake.
Turn around we did. Him complaining most of the time. :)
Back in the car once more it started to rain. The ride began to feel a bit more gloomy, but we carried on laughing, dozing, listening to an audio book all woven with periodic body break stops.
About three or four hours into our trip, traffic came to a rolling stop. An ambulance went racing by. After a bit of deliberation and an exit glaring at us, we jumped off the highway and took a slight detour that paralleled the highway. NOW I could see what the cause was; an 18-wheeler had knife jacked and its cab was hanging over the side of the highway down a long and steep incline.
We could have been involved in that mess directly had we not forgotten the medication.
I'll take the delay any day of the week, wouldn't you? We arrived safely in Cincy, albeit very tired, but are now taking the morning to rest a bit, write blogs (obviously) and off this afternoon to set up for the show.
Morale of the story? You never know how one seemingly insignificant event can affect the remainder of your life. Allow delays to be an adventure. Allow the scenery, enjoy the ride for you never know what is around the corner.
I look forward to reading some of your Big Mike encounters below!
It's a Balancing Act... March 20 2017 2 Comments
The energy has been all over the map. A great client called it a Mac Truck Hit and Run...she wasn't far off...
Today is the first day of spring and only as you already do... let's bring in a bit more support for all; especially ourselves. Be gentle on yourself. Do those Daily Acts of Self Love ... it was a warning... everything I share with you is not to 'hear myself talk'; it's done with you in mind and only your highest well being, safety (Big Mike for protection), Chamuel for Self Love, Uriel for safety to shine your brightest light
Lower Energies are amping up their power by actually working together... do NOT dabble in this arena... it's not an easy feat nor for the faint of heart... seriously. It's why the Atlantis Pendant is out... so all may benefit from its protective energies...
Here's a list of suggestions that can help you stay true to you and maintain a semblance of balance.
- Lay low when needed and when possible
- Eat HEALTHY foods (comfort food lowers your vibration, no matter how yummy they taste. This of course is null if comfort foods in your world are high energy, high protein; salads, etc.)
- Sleep - get to bed earlier. You can turn the TV off; the world most likely will not end while you sleep
- Use the Sacred Clearing Mister. It's infused with the energies of Violet Flame and will kick out some of the nasty stuff.
- If you are into crystals, and let's face it, who isn't... Here are a couple of recommendations; Rose Quartz - Self Love. Tektites- Protection. Yellow Calcite-Happy Power. Boji Stones-Balance. Let me know below in your comments others you love.
- Use the Sacred Clearing Mister. It's infused with the energies of Violet Flame and will kick out some of the nasty stuff.
- Exercise - makes you feel great and raises your chi
- Yoga - HUGE fan of yoga, but even I chose to miss one class last week due to my energy levels being low
- Walks - fast paced ones to get your heart excited
- Kickboxing or some other form of aerobics - it does feel good to legitimately punch something once in a while
- HOWEVER, and it's a BIG however, don't push yourself beyond your limits. It's one thing to exercise to feel better. It's quite another
- Let me know some of your favorites and why in the comments below.
and remember, we are all in this together and you are safe in our Facebook group. If you are not a member of the group, come and join us!
Ramblings of an Angel Goddess... March 15 2017 3 Comments
Trust is such a funny thing, isn't it?
We can trust that as long as we've paid our bills that lights go and off. We don't even that a second thought really.
We trust when we go to a restaurant, no matter how much stars it's rated, that our order will arrive exactly as we requested.
We trust that when shoes are purchased, it is for one pair and a left and right are in the box.
Then the trust begins to waver the more personal it gets.
We hope that another loves us if we love them.
We hope we get hugged back.
We hope to purchase the winning lottery ticket
We hope and dream about manifesting our deepest desires
We hope and dream ...
Why is that? Why can't everyone achieve their desires?
It's a two-fold answer sadly; low self worth and not trusting it can happen to them.
As you well know, change is a constant. You literally grow; as a result your clothing sizes have changed over the years. Your tastes change. I'm even going to go out on a limb and say you've moved at least once in your lifetime.
As change is a way of life, our sense of worth changes along with it. Have a few bad romantic relationships? One begins to think it doesn't exist except in the movies. Trust me, it DOES exist; you may not have met them yet as your true self is yet to fully emerge (Chat with Uriel and ask Why is it safe for me to be me?). Employment is another; not feeling satisfied at your job or employed, one may think they don't deserve better over time. Trust me, you deserve MUCH better (Why is it so easy for me to have my perfect job?). If you aren't excited about your job most days, then please start looking for another. Look dreamily at those homes on HGTV or covet another's 'luck'? You deserve the home of YOUR dreams; it may take a while, but trust me, it's worth it. I've lived in many houses over my life and have loved them all for what happened there (memories), but now LOVE living in our New Digs more than any other place. (Why is it so easy for me to live in my dream home?)
It's a bit of learning about yourself; okay a LOT of learning about yourself. What do you really desire? What kind of life do you wish? Do you wish a fast-paced city kind of life or something at the other end of the spectrum say perhaps on a deserted island or something in between? Take your time answering this one. It's bigger than you may think.
Once you figure that out, look at a map. Which area calls to you? Why not explore it? Perhaps start as a vacation or a day trip. Investigate via the internet and their Chamber of Commerce, etc. When this information is being compiled, does this area still call to you? How can you make it happen? Start applying for jobs at this new locale is one way. Start clutter clearing. This signifies to The Gang that you are no longer complacent and are ready for change. You may even start packing boxes.
Write a journal entry dated five years from now. Imagine you are living that life. Describe your day from start to finish. Feel the excitement upon awakening in your dream home. Feel the giddiness that you are living the dream.
Simply because you trusted in your hopes and dreams and the change it would bring and embraced it all by knowing you are worthy.
Please feel free to leave your comments below; this helps get the blog noticed by others that may benefit from the ramblings!
New Moon Amplified with Lunar Eclipse...what it means for you February 24 2017 2 Comments
This Sunday, February 26, 2017, we have another whammy event:
New Moon combined with a Solar Eclipse.
You may say 'SHAZAM' now.
Many of you are already feeling the energy build; perhaps you have felt a web or veil covering your eyes. This is due to the time of year that this particular New Moon is in; all very watery energy; Pisces. All intuitive powers are becoming more heightened. Many of my clients have reached out with thoughts that lend to 'am I going crazy?' or 'what just happened?' Gifts that you had as a child and shoved away due to being 'not normal' are now resurfacing and you are better able to connect.
Those of you that can have a tendency to dull the edges with outside influences (alcohol as an example) may feel the pull to do so again. Stand Strong Chatterer! It isn't a test truly, but if your gifts are being heightened, YOU are ready. No longer does the need to dull them exist. You have a beautiful gift and one that is meant to be shared.
For those of you that are empathic, the same holds true. Be sure you are doing daily self care acts to build and strengthen your resolve. Make your home a sacred space. Do a space clearing to rid of the old and allow the magnificent new in. Not sure what to do? I can help energetically and is a service I can explain more fully upon inquiring.
No matter what camp, or any camp you feel drawn to, know that ALL is heightened right now, including your ability to manifest like a Manifesting Machine. Here's an idea, instead of focusing on 'the job', 'the house', 'the client', 'the winning lottery ticket' etc. Focus on HOW you will feel. Step into the revelry. Step into the joy. Step into the empowerment of HOW you feel when these events happen. You'll know you are there when you get those beautiful 'angel tears' (eyes becoming watery at the edges as a way to confirm the pureness of the energy you are in).
By focusing on the HOW part of HOW you will feel, you are allowing 'this or something better' to flow to you at greater speed. All only know what they know. It's why it's called the unknown. By allowing the unknown to step forward, it can be more glorious than you could possibly expect.
This is why I've been badgering so many of you to do your Acts of Self Love daily. Helping you to boost your inner juices, your inner vibe, your inner stirrings from the soul. When this is more full, you are better to step into what is truly desired vs. what you think you desire.
It's for more candle work... I HIGHLY recommend (no more joking here) Auriel and/or Haniel's candle for this event... I know, I know... time is of the essence and will you get it in time? No you will not get it prior to Sunday (unless you are seeing us in Raleigh at the BMSE show this weekend), but you shall for next week. Sit with your FEELINGS as you hold the candle and light 'er up! There is a bit more to it, but suffice it to say, this starts you on your journey.
The veil IS lifting Chatterers, time to step into your power and divinity.
Tom Brady February 17 2017
What a shift, an Angel Goddess chatting football? Kinda sorta
Thanks to my Honey, I got an article about the Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady, with the headline:
I'm Not Going to Give Away My Power
The article goes on about empowerment and allowing others, or not, to take yours.
"I don't want to give my power away to other people by letting my own emotions be subjected to what their thoughts or opinions are. If someone calls me something, that's their problem. It's not my problem. I'm not going to give away my power."
On the flip side of that scenario:
"You start giving your power away to other people, it's a tough life."
'Nuf said? If you have been with me for a bit, I've used words and phrases very similar to this. I encourage you to be YOU. Fly that Freak Flag HIGH! Remember, we are ALL human and therefore gloriously imperfect. All attack life from a different perspective as a result of life experiences. When others call us names, it most typically is through jealousy, insecurity and certainly fear. Unfortunately I've had my share and I'm sure you have had as well. That's just part of our human adventure. Learning to BE.
Haven't we all succumbed to what other's thought of us? Especially from those we held in high regard? Especially when those thoughts may have given us permission to not go after our very dreams because deep down we were a bit afraid ourselves? Things like, 'how are you going to make money doing that?' or the classic as it pertains to me, 'You chat with angels? (silence) Oh my look at the time, gotta run. Nice chatting with you.' While not derogatory, it certainly isn't an empowering statement and gave me permission for many a year to stay hidden.
We all have fallen prey to allowing other's thoughts to dictate what we do or don't do. I mean it took me YEARS to come out of the closet and proudly state what I do and don't care much what others think about it any more. Why? Because I LOVE what I do; working with clients, creating and all through the help of The Gang.
On the other hand, have you ever had an AHA Moment and not allowed those words to take hold? You kinda got tired of hiding and being submissive? You kinda got fed up with doing what's expected and being put in a box to make others comfortable. You kinda knew it wasn't real.
You quietly or loudly said ENOUGH! At that moment, you stood taller and did what needed to be done for you with greater conviction. You took that first step no matter how scary it felt. You started to share with others your dream. The circle may have been small at the onset, but grew as your inner circle said, 'It's about time!' Didn't you feel all the better for it afterwards? Didn't your smile expand ten-fold.
Of course it did. That is just one reminder of a time gone by when you stood in your power. It's time for the Big Stand In Your Power Moment.
NOW is that time more than ever. NOW is the time to FLY high. NOW is the time for you to SHINE. NOW is the time for you to BE YOU. It's a BIG deal to dance your dance. A very big deal, but it's time Chatterer. Why the urgency? Well truth be told, we're not getting any younger. Do you wish to live life longer at being unhappy or happy?
I'll choose happy every single time.
Why not chat with Archangel Uriel, The Angel of Safety. He will help to shine a variety of ways you can step more firmly into your power with greater conviction and joy. Also use the Askfirmation courtesy of him:
Why is it safe for me to be me?
and remember to allow The Gang to answer you in magical and yet profound ways. This is just one of many steps that you will take to reclaim YOU.
Welcome Home to you.

Are you...? February 16 2017
The angels have nudged me to chat about empathy. What I have come to understand is that ALL are sensitive, but not all are empathic. Webster defines empathy as:
the ability to understand and share the feelings of another
As with most things, there are various levels of being empathic. There are those that typically feel those only close to them. Then the other side of the spectrum are those that can feel the impending earthquake as it starts to rev up. A very wide range indeed.
Below are some more common traits of an empathic person. See if they resonate with you:
- You get labeled overly sensitive
- You cry easily - don't let anyone drop a hat near you!
- You can be lethargic because you get overwhelmed
- You don't care to be in large crowds
- The Bullshit Monitor? Sky high; you know when folks are lying
These of course are just a few of the symptoms. Perhaps now you may have a better understanding of yourself and those around you. It most certainly is not a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card because you are empathic. That would be akin to saying my family has always been fat, so give me that Twinkie.
You can use this knowledge to become empowered. You can use this knowledge as a secret power weapon in understanding others. By being empathic, you actually do know where they are coming from! This helps greatly no matter what you do for a living because you are listening and taking cues from them.
If you are in the woo-woo industry like me, it makes you even better because you can connect more deeply with your clients. By understanding them more purely, you can better tap into what can assist them on any given day. Beware however that you don't fall so much into their energy that you cannot discern a viable tool or tidbit to help them!
Chat with Big Mike, you know Archangel Michael, to help keep at bay unwanted energies. With the use of his mighty sword, more kaka can be cut back allowing you to stand more confidently in your power and not get downtrodden by those around you. Plus your thinking will be more clear and you will know if it's 'you' or the energy around you contributing to your current energy levels.
The benefit of being an empath is that it helps you to LIVE life more fully. You laugh more. You cry more. How dare folks tell you that you are too sensitive, that's just not sensitive! Being an empath and being labeled as one is not something to hide by any means. It is something to incorporate so it is part of your daily existence. After all, it is YOU. Why would you hide it? Do you hide your smile? Do you hide from sharing your wisdom? Do you ... well you get my drift.
Don't be embarrassed to say 'no' if you aren't feeling up to snuff. Because when you do say 'yes' you can mean it with a full heart. I have declined many a social outing simply because the energy felt off.
By gauging your energy level on any given day you better know what you can tackle with greater velocity and focus. I often drive my Honey nuts by seemingly to allow things to lag until I feel good and ready. Once it is time, it gets done in record speed and with great clarity. He just shakes his head, but I know better than he does... after all, I am empathic.
Time to take a breath! February 11 2017 1 Comment
Stress is part of daily living these days. It's become such a natural fact, a way of life that one doesn't quite know what to do with themselves when an opportunity of down time occurs. All this stress eventually leads to more stress and to one hyperventilating.
When one hyperventilates, shoulders tighten, headaches ensue, sleep patterns are erratic and eating is frequently something that one does on the run. None of this is beneficial to mind, body or soul.
Why do these symptoms happen? Simply put the body is not getting the oxygen it needs to operate at its optimum. Oxygen is only being sent to the upper portions of the lungs. If that's the case, and it is, of course the body tightens up! Nothing is providing it with what it needs... oxygen!
This post is a continuation of the campaign I've started with all of you - Daily Acts of Self Love. It's been pure JOY reading what ya'll are doing daily for YOU. If you haven't done so, come join us in the Facebook group! and chat away with some AHmazing Chatterers.
I digress, but they are seriously that great.
Haniel offered this simply, but powerful exercise to me years ago and it's one I've passed on to clients and our group members for quite a while. Here goes:
- Call on Big Mike for some extra angelic protection
- Close your eyes
- Place your hands over your heart
- Feel your heart's cadence; feel its joy, feel its love
- Inhale for four slow counts
- Hold for four counts
- Exhale for four slow counts
- Repeat at least for ten cycles
By doing this daily, you will begin to feel more alive. You will begin to be more focused. You will begin to be present. You will begin to simply BE.
Here's to another step BEing added that allows you to shine!
Let's make a pact.... February 01 2017 2 Comments
Today is February 1 - This month we have pretty much decided to dedicate it to LOVE and it is evident in a variety of ways:
- Heart-shaped boxes filled with yummy chocolates
- St. Valentines Day
- More couples profess their love in February and get engaged (including yours truly)
- and so on
Hearts are everywhere! In fact, we went out to brunch with my sis and her honey just last weekend and I've never seen a restaurant so decked out for Valentines Day. Hearts were everywhere! From the ceilings, the windows and mirrors. It was very beautiful, but WOW!
I digress, which is fairly easy for me to do at times.
Today, being February 1 and The Month of Love...let's make a pact, you and I.
Let's focus on ourselves! Yes, you read correctly. Focus on SELF first. I've been chatting LOADS with Chamuel lately; you know, The Angel of Self Love. She constantly reminds me to take it easy with a variety of ideas; baths, naps, walks with Gabi, bed earlier (yet to accomplish that one) and reading a book - just for the fun of it. Why?
Because loving yourself first isn't selfish, it's imperative!
Read that again. It IS imperative. Why? Because as you refuel your body, mind and soul, you become more energized. When you are more energized, you have more to give. Play with me for a moment, have you ever notice how many more 'idiots' there are in the world when you are tired? Me too. They aren't idiots at all, and you know this deep down. You, darling, are what is called overtired, tapped out and running on fumes. There simply isn't enough coffee in the world to keep you going and staying in your happy place.
So let's make a pact. Every. single. day. in the month of February you do something for YOU. The list is as long as it is varied. Here are some ideas and I would LOVE to hear of some of yours.
- Bubble Bath
- Say NO and stick to it
- Say YES with glee and mean it
- Hug someone for 30 seconds or longer ~ HEART TO HEART
- Sit with some rose quartz crystals - heart shaped of course ;)
- Place your hands over your heart and say, "I Love You."
- and _________________________ you fill in the blanks
Here's to Self Love! Remember:
Mindfulness ... what is YOUR practice? January 30 2017 1 Comment
As we continue to head in a seemingly downward spiral, it is easy to get off track and fall headfirst into whatever drama is being presented to you whether it is global, social or private.
It's easy to go to bed with a headache or feelings of frustration or fear.
I'm not saying ignore what is being presented. What we (the angels and I) are suggesting is that you take a literal step back and practice mindfulness. By being more mindful, extraordinary events can take place.
By being mindful, you are aware of the world around you and that also means aware of the solutions that may be hidden from you if you are not practicing mindfulness. When one is present, one can see all, but does not 'own' it as theirs. THIS little switch can make all the difference in the world; your world.
How to practice mindfulness? This does not mean you begin to emulate the Dalai Lama and meditate for hours on end. As an example, I've recently re-discovered yoga. I'm going three times a week and was only able to attend once last week; my inner equilibrium missed it terribly and it affected my entire being. By taking yoga off the mat, my patience and tolerance for ALL expands. My love for ALL expands. There are many yoga modalities. If this intrigues you, find one that suits your schedule, your energy and your physicality.
Be sure you are eating properly for YOU. If you've been with me for a bit, you know I don't promote any one particular food lifestyle. Some folks needs meat. Some folks don't. It's that simple. However, we can all agree that consuming a container of Ben & Jerry's ice cream is not the best course of empowering action. Right? Ask each food how it benefits you. Bless the food each time you eat. A simple thank you goes a long way.
Lighting a candle with intention helps to shift the energy of any space. Of course I prefer my candles. They are already infused with angelic energies, but if you don't have any on hand, get a new candle and as you hold it, put energies of one emotion in. Perhaps love. Perhaps transmutation. Perhaps health. Perhaps...
Daily meditating is of course high on the list. Your meditation practice need not be hours. But rather 15 minutes or so will get you started living life with greater clarity, love, joy and the ability to rise above the fray.
Spending time with like-minded souls is lovely... ONLY IF it does feed the Fear Monster. That only exacerbates the situation and will have you feeling more drained and confused quicker than you can turn around.
What other ways do you already practice mindfulness?
What other ways have intrigued you?

What are YOUR desires? January 27 2017
Apparently the angels have me on a roll and it's time, even for me, to step up and out more visibly and frequently; not just at shows.
This is one of the vehicles I shall be much more active in this year.
Today's blog post is about our first New Moon in 2017. While the year has just begun, what a beginning, eh? There indeed is much turbulence in the world at this moment and many are feeling at a loss for words, let alone actions at this moment.
Take advantage of today's New Moon. The spectacular energy that is heralding in with this moon brings with it a sense of union, going for the gold, BEcoming more you. This IS the perfect time to make your Vision Board. If you haven't already done one for 2017, NOW is the time. Yes, you can do this over the weekend, as the cycle of moon while strongest tonight, stays more or less in this energy for the next two nights. This is a perfect weekend activity!
Now is the time to evaluate relationships. Not just the 'old' ones (ironically going to visit a dear 'old' friend today recovering from hip surgery) but to celebrate new ones. Your strongest relationship is of course with yourself. Have you been lying to yourself in hopes of seeing a different outcome? Are you letting yourself stay stagnant because the unknown is a bit more unsettling for your tastes? Remember, Rome certainly wasn't built in a day. Reclaiming YOU may take a while. It's one of the reasons I'm here; offering private sessions. (shameless reminder plug here).
Take stock of all that is affecting you at the moment. Some clients have completely dis-engaged from social media for a bit to allow themselves to recoup, rejuvenate and recharge. Some have picked up a great inspirational book. Some have gathered closer to friends for camaraderie. Some are vesting more in Acts of Self Love; daily walks, yoga, energy treatments and one of my favorites; bubble baths. Do what is best for you; nobody has walked in your shoes. Nobody really knows how stuff affects you. YOU is what matters. YOU.
Harness in today's energy. Project out where you wish to be in one year. Set your intentions. Then release the 'hows'. Ask the angels, specifically Auriel (The Moon Angel) t illuminate the correct path for you at this moment in time.
Remember, all is as it 'should' be at THIS moment. The next? Up to you.
The Color of Love January 26 2017
I was out with Gabi today, you know my living muppet yogi dog, and a thought popped in my head as we passed yet another potential fan club member for Gabi. Are dogs really color blind? Turns out they are NOT (I did a tiny bit of research on our arrival home). They DO see a variety of colors, but akin to a person who is red-green color blind. Simply put dogs see orange, yellow, and green as yellow. Blue-green is seen as white and red looks as though it is brownish-black. That is starting to make my hair hurt, but bottom line, they see a lot more than gray tones.
I asked because, you see, Gabi LOVES everybody. Truly. I've never seen her growl at a person. Unless of course they are walking by and she's not out there to greet them. But I digress...
On every walk, she perks up the minute she see another human. Her tail wags. She begins to prance. She actually smiles in anticipation. She eagerly waits for the command from me or a greeting from them to perform her official hello which also includes massive leaning and if you're really lucky a slobbery kiss. She actually gets somewhat miffed when a person doesn't invite her over or worse yet; she is ignored.
It doesn't matter how old or how young. Although she does have a distinct fondness for children. It doesn't matter if they are purple, black, polka-dotted, yellow, white or striped. She truly adores and LOVES everyone.
What a novel idea. Love for what it is. Love no matter what. Love is not just skin deep. Love is real.
We could all learn something from that magical fur angel girl known as Gabi.
What the world needs now... January 24 2017
This is so not a political post, but of course many, if not all of you will relate.
Yes, the world is seemingly wonky right now.
Yes, the world is very confusing right now.
Yes, the world can be quite scary right now.
Wish it to go away? Well, I do too, but it's not going until we all change. The change starts within. Remember my post immediately following the election? The Shadow has emerged? Well the shadow is still here and not going anywhere until all can look at themselves in the mirror and LOVE that person looking back at them.
The shadow is a tricky little fella; it is brilliant at churning up the unsavory. It is brilliant at pointing out the elephant in the room. It is brilliant at pointing out the lack. The shadow? All it truly desires is recognition and great love.
Of course it can be difficult to love that unsavory stuff. Remember, you ARE human and therefore perfectly imperfect.
That perfectly imperfect 'crap' is stuff we shoulda coulda woulda done differently in our personal past. ALL can relate to this. But if it weren't for that one lesson, we wouldn't be where we are today; growing, learning, and yes LOVING better.
Loving without conditions. Getting easier at saying 'I Love You' without constraints. For Love is real. Love is powerful. Love is healing. If your shadow has emerged, and it has, so have millions of others.
We ARE at a crossroads to slip back into oblivion or to step forward and claim LOVE as the motivator. What do you chose? IF you chose LOVE, and I hope you do, make a pact with yourself to spend quiet time daily in the essence of LOVE.
Spend time daily to allow you to feel LOVE. Spend time daily to send LOVE out to ALL. You certainly may focus on one area of the world, or a person. Each day will differ from the next, but if every single person sends out LOVE that is powerful.
It reclaiming LOVE as your motivator, you become more empowered. You are more courageous. The Dalai Lama says being courageous is looking fear in the eye and still moving forward. Each person has various levels of courage. As you reclaim LOVE of self, you become bolder, stronger and lighter. Chat with Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love. You will learn new acts of love to direct towards not only yourself but others on a daily basis. Sometimes all you must do is listen.
Can you commit to doing this for yourself daily?
I know I am.
PEACE January 19 2017
There's an old song,
Let there be peace on Earth.... and let it begin with me
With so much going on universally at the moment, upheaval, angst, and dare I say it, fear... it can be easy to fall prey to that energy and unintentionally contribute to it all. This of course makes matters worse, especially for you and you are my main concern.
If you are not meditating daily, now is the perfect time to do so. I've been chatting with the angels - I know what a surprise and I got a bit of a wing slap myself. While I do meditate daily while Gabi and I go for walks, I realize it isn't as powerful as sitting or laying down to meditate. Upon making a conscious decision to meditate daily, it is amazing how much more energy I have. How deeper and more restorative sleep is. Focus isn't a thing to pine away for, it happens!
The first day I laid upon the client treatment table, one of our cats, Schroeder, joined me the entire time. He snuggled deep into my side and demanded I put my arm around him. This may not sound very significant to most of you, or any of you for that matter, but Schroeder is not known for cuddling let alone snuggling. He stayed with me the entire 40 minutes!
He knew this was important. He knew that as long as he stayed with me, I would stay put (funny how cats have that power over us) and this time allowed The Gang to work on me. They cleared energy that had been unwillingly weighing me down. They cleared my mind processes to allow me to plow through the remaining portion of the manuscript so I can now pass it on to the publishing company. One of the best parts? That night I slept for over 5.5 hours! That is the first time in many, many, many weeks.
Begin meditating. We all have a comfort time zone that we allow ourselves to sit still. When that buzzer internally dings, give yourself another few minutes. In those moments magic begins to happen. You relax, insights come forward and are acknowledged and great healing commences.
Is this being selfish? Of course it is! You are taking time out of your very busy day just for you. YOU are important. YOU deserve to be replenished. YOU deserve the quiet and the peace that comes from meditating.
Remember what Gabi's name stands for:
Grace Always Begins Inside
It starts with you.
Use this Askfirmation™:
Why am I so filled with peace?
and remember to allow the angels to surprise you with answers.
Wishing you days that are filled with magic and great peace and love.
Times? They ARE achangin' January 18 2017 2 Comments
Just scroll through any social media site; Facebook specifically and so many folks are sick! I mean bed ridden sick.
While this is fairly common during the winter months, this time it is also a strong indicator of how much the energy has shifted. We are undergoing a BIG shift that is slowly anchoring into our being.
Believe it or not we have entered the Fifth Dimension.
Yes, we have officially entered a new way of being. Our thoughts are playing an even bigger role in what manifests in our personal, social and business lives. Living in fear? you will most definitely become sick and life stagnant.
Living with a bit more optimism? Life will continue its grand march in Utopia as you desire and envision it.
However, let's not kid ourselves, it is crazy scary out there! It is truly the wild unknown. The Wild West seems like a walk in the park compared to what all of us are undergoing now.
This is not the time to go home and pull the covers over your head in hopes that it will sort itself out and all will be fine. All WILL be fine, but you are needed.
You are needed to be present.
You are needed to be conscious
You are needed to fly your personal Freak Flag HIGH
You are needed to love yourself so you may love others
You are needed
Don't run and hide. Stand tall. If you are not a member of our sacred space on Facebook, please join us at Angel Chatter. It is filled with amazing, really amazing people who are loving, joy-filled, intelligent and off the charts supportive of all the other Chatterers.

Why is it safe for me to be me?
Remember, do not go searching for the answer to any Askfirmation™, allow the angels to surprise you with one!

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