Space Clearing 101 November 14 2018
I've had a few clients in recent days reach out and ask...
How Do I Clear My Space Energetically?
While I coach clients all day long on this very topic and could be another book I was told during meditation this morning to write this in hopes of helping you clear your space and prepare for 2019; The Breakthrough Year.
Why Do Spaces Need Clearing?
I know you clean or have your home cleaned. That is clean. Mr. Clean clean. However, energy is a completely different ball of wax.
Let's make it a bit more abstract. Have you ever avoided a place simply because it didn't feel good? On the flip side, have you flocked to a location simply because it felt yummy?
That's energy. People, buildings, animals and yes the even land hold energy. Who doesn't love feeling clean? Buildings, animals and land are no different and love BEing cleared of what is not serviceable. Think of a building, or any room in a building. It is typically those blessed corners; that stagnant energy is birthed. If left to its own devices the stagnancy builds and creeps into the space that is used. By the time it gets into a space and becomes noticeable, it becomes more difficult clear and to feel good in this space.
How do you know if your space requires clearing? Here are some clues that your space is in need of cleaning:
- It just plain feels yucky
- It has a smell that is not pleasant and no amount of cleaning gets rid of it
- You can't focus, in fact you feel very scattered
- Restless, sleep deprived and yet can't sleep
- Ahem, discussions aka arguments have increased
- Your pets avoid certain parts of your home
And so on.
All of these are lower energy indicators that at minimum have you stuck in your current state of affairs and can certainly lead to worse. Much worse.
Before you go rushing off to various corners to clear, keep in mind that lower/stagnant energy can land in a very prominent area of your home as well. In fact just recently a portal of crap emerged in our home. The location? At the bottom of the stairs leading into the kitchen. This location is like Grand Station; one goes through it several times daily. Therefore, it certainly did not pop up due to lack of energy. But pop up it did.
It smelled. It smelled so bad that a new litter box was purchased (the thinking was the plastic had absorbed the odors over the years) Didn't work. With the wedding, shows, clients, etc. I didn't pay close attention; my bad. So it grew in power and size. Oops.
Don't rush off to buy sage! I don't use it at all these days with the exception of the fire ceremonies with private weekend clients.
Why I do NOT use Sage
We lived in a beautiful home years ago in the Baltimore area. The original house had burned to the ground (first clue we ought not to have taken it). The original owners had divorced, neighbors thought them 'weird', well you get the idea. Luckily for us, we were renting.
From Day One my daughter and I heard voices from the woods behind the house that were shall we say, not pleasant. Neither of us would go out the back willingly at night. I planted crystals in the backyard in hopes to build a wall of energy to prevent the infiltration, but little did we know they were already in the house and deeply embedded.
I was still somewhat green behind the ears and did what I had done before; I saged the house.
The house did feel better; however, only for one or two days at best and then all hell would break loose. Arguments, more voices and getting work done on any level was a nice idea that never happened. Honestly it got worse than that, but won't bore you with the details.
It was then that I learned that sage can feed certain energies. YES, feed.
LUCKILY I had also just created the aromatherapy line and began to implement the energies of the Violet Flame courtesy of the Zadkiel Candle and honestly have not looked back since.
How to Clear your Space
There are many thoughts on space clearing and some situations clearly call for an expert and more tools. However, below is how I operate and it works for us.
First, this is not a ceremony that can be rushed or done in 20 minutes. Allow as much time as needed for your space. Quiet your mind and BEcome centered. If you bring anxiety to the ceremony, you will create more anxiety, etc. Play music, work in silence; whatever is best for you.
- Call on Big Mike to surround you and your space with protective energies.
- Grab two of my candles; Zadkiel for the Transmutative Energies AND another angel candle based on the intention for that space; healing, self love, harmony, etc. Why two? I admit, I'm lazy. IF the angels can work on my behalf while I'm clearing, why not?!
- Start on the top most floor (this includes your attic if accessible)
- Go to the 'far left corner' (this is based on your front door's location).
- Start in the far left corner of that room.
- Light the Zadkiel Candle.
- Light your Intention Candle and place as close as possible in the center of the room.
- Working in a counter clockwise motion. Linger or move as quickly as your soul guides you.
- IF it has been a while since your space has been cleared, open all drawers, closets, cabinetry, etc and clear those as well - lower energies love to hide.
- As you work in a counter clockwise pattern, use your hands, feathers or other tools to direct the Zadkiel candle's energy up, down, etc. It is not silly if you feel guided to do so.
Once that room is complete, repeat the pattern for every other room in your space. Always work in a counter clockwise motion; room to room and within each room.
Why counter clockwise? Think of it as unwinding the energy. Once the top floor is complete, repeat the pattern on any other level, always working downward.
What Kind of Results Can You Expect from Space Clearing?
In a nutshell; pristine, expansive calming and empowering energies.
As an example, years ago one of our daughters was at the beach house ahead of me. She was working on the day I arrived.
WOW I think, she cleaned the house.
I thanked her profusely when she came home. Mom, all I did was clear the space.
It's that powerful.
How Often Do You Need to Clear Your Space?
The answer to that is as varied as all those reading this post.
Company? Clear within 24 hours of their departure.
Client work? Clear weekly at minimum; ideally daily. You and your clients will be giddy.
Holidays? Double up! Before and after company arrivals.
Trauma locally, regionally, nationally, internationally that has affected you? Clear.
Sidebar prior to Space Clearing - Clutter Clearing
I'm a Clutter Clearing Nut so we don't often have loads of stuff to get rid of. However, with multiple moves under our belt, when it is time to clutter clear, this is the practice that works for me:
- Light the Zadkiel candle in the room I am tackling.
- Leave said room for a good 30 minutes or more. As I doing something else in our home, Zadkiel is quick to work and easily begins pointing out the various clothing, decor items, books etc. that need a new home.
Since Zadkiel is metaphorically fluffing up the unwanted energy, it becomes less painful to be rid of articles that are not serving us. I am better able to dis-engage from the emotional tie (grandma gave this to me kind of thing); knowing that I will always love grandma and I don't need it to prove my love for her.
I create a few piles; trash, keep, donate. The donation can also be a sell pile if we are so inclined to make a few bucks. I then make a call to a local donation center for a pick up and since I am still a Good Girl at heart and not desiring to disappoint, there is a pile waiting for them on pickup day.
Once the room is clear of all clutter, I then commence with the Space Clearing. It can frequently lead to wall painting, window cleaning, moving around the decor making the space feel more spacious, welcoming and protected.
Where to start? I start with a quiet room; a room that is not frequently used. That way I can go visit this new yummy energy and it encourages me to continue with the rest of our home.
I hope fervently that this blog has opened your eyes and soul and has prompted you to Clear Your Space!

Universal Energy Shifts and How to Navigate Them September 06 2018 1 Comment
No doubt about it, the shifts in energy right now are palpable. So many have reported:
- Crazy CRAZY Dreams
- Heightened awareness of intuitive gifts
- Nauseous sensations that cannot be explained
- Extremely sensitive
- Food cravings
- Extreme lack of energy
You see, very real and very palpable. This energy shift is hitting all the levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
One could blame seasonal allergies. But they're not.
One could blame a virus that is running around. But it's not.
One could blame you are being overly sensitive. But you're not.
It's very real and very much in your face. There is no way to escape this one.
How to Combat This Energy Shift
You most likely would love to pull the covers over your head and wait it out. Not a good idea.
Why's that? I like my bed you say...
Because this shift is helpful. This shift is spotlighting within you things that let's say it as simply as possible; you've been ignoring. ALL have aspects of themselves that wish would simply go away. However, these aspects do create the whole and the whole is a human who is perfectly imperfect.
Each and every human is that.
When these aspects of ourselves are acknowledged, then the healing can begin and these energy shifts cease to throw you into a whirlwind that can seem insurmountable.
Acknowledge what you are going through. This is not a Get out of Jail Free Card if you have become a whining mess and are doing nothing about it. This is literally stopping what you are doing and recognize that what you are going through is very real and personal. By acknowledging this you begin the unraveling process and its control over you begins to lessen.
Acknowledge if this is making you tired. We've been going to bed earlier than normal for us because that is what our bodies are screaming at us...SLEEP is what we need!
Acknowledge if you need to eat! However, eating higher vibration foods; fresh fruits, veggies, etc. will greatly assist in the maneuvering this latest energy shift. Think about it, if you are gearing up to run a marathon, would your diet consist mostly of oreos and ice cream? Probably not, right? Why would you, ahem, fuel your body with the same lower vibration foods if you are undergoing an energy shift?
Acknowledge if you need to say NO and stick to it! Saying no at times is the most powerful thing you can do. It can signify you've had enough. It can signify that this is not in alignment with you and you are actively choosing to not engage (vs. the opposite 'Scarlett' Way... ignoring and worry about it tomorrow)
Acknowledge when you need assistance. This is equally powerful NO, it is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign that says, I AM enough, but know I cannot do it all and therefore could benefit from outside help. That help could be seeing a counselor, coach. Hiring a coach to help navigate this quagmire of energy (I know of a great angel one ;) . Ask your inner circle to step up and pitch in.
Once acknowledgement is made, you most likely will begin to feel the release of the tension that you probably didn't even know you were holding onto.
Now in Step Two you can start sending it some major lovin' energy. This it of course is you.
That tension you are holding onto? That turns into tighter muscles. That turns into stress related illnesses. That turns into plain ol' yuck.
By acknowledging it, you are now on your way to LOVIING it. Feel your body begin to soften in this powerful energy of Love. You already opened the doors by acknowledging it. Taking it a step deeper into relaxation through Love.
If possible, place your hands over the part of your body that desires attention first. Of course you have asked Big Mike (aka Archangel Michael) in for protection purposes and now are calling upon Raphael and Chamuel. For loving energy to enter. By placing your hands there or focusing on that body area, that is where the energy of Love will start. I often use Chamuel's Ritual Dropper. I apply a few drops to my hands, rub together, hold up to my face to breathe in the energy and then place on that part of my body.
Allow it to build and in many ways blast open what tension is there. Do not be surprised if you well up in your eyes as this area that has been ignored for so long is now BEing honored.
Once the area is more love based and love-filled, the true healing can commence.
This of course is Raphael's jurisdiction; healing.
Big Mike and Chamuel are still on hand, but now Raphael is the leader in this scenario. Feel his healing wings upon you and gently and lovingly infusing your body with healing on all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
The energy may pulsate as it softly breaks up the tension further, but through that pulsing energy, it jells and begins its true healing. I often will add to this the Raphael Ritual Dropper Oil. I apply it the same way I apply the Chamuel's oils.
Just last week and client was scheduled for her first public musical concert in ages. No surprise she came down with a cold on the day of to the point her throat was swollen and swallowing was difficult. Not only did she apply Raphael, but Mother Mary's Ritual Oil. Immediately her head felt clearer as did her entire BEing. Her peformance? Flawless.
Talk about an energy shift to beat all energy shifts! She did exactly what I am sharing here; acknowledged, loved and allowed the healing to commence.
Yes, you've read it before, but the Art of Allowing now goes deeper and higher.
Higher? Yes, for now you will be more attuned to the energies around you whether they stem from your inner circle to global to universal. Through your intimate cleansing, you will better know where other disturbances are brewing and how best you could assist in that arena. Prayer? Warning? Active Healing Energy? There are many ways to better understand what is going to happen, what is happening and how you may offer assistance... remember you can always say no.
The Shifts are real. What has been provided for you within this blog are some basic, but powerful tools that have helped countless others navigate them without nary a scratch.
Prepare and Self Care are the highest things to do. Never forget.
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?
It's that time again, Mercury is doing is figuratively dance backwards in retrograde.
While often times all things electronic can go haywire, it can also greatly contribute to miscommunications with others.
Let's take it a step further in this Year of Love (2018); miscommunication with self.
How often do you tell yourself little white lies?
If you like the rest of us; fairly often. We all do things such as:
- You brush your feelings aside when you are hurt.
- You say it's OK, when it really isn't
- You keep going even when you are exhausted at the expense of your health. Why? Because it needs to get done.
- You can get those flurries in the solar plexus chakra when challenged and quickly back down; saying you'll address this later and later never shows up.
- Eat on the run; knowing that nothing eaten on the run is healthy either the food itself or for your digestive ease.
And so on.
Why do we do these things?
Bottom line, we wished to be liked, honored and most importantly loved. Even if that means we dis-honor ourselves. It's that innate craving that all humans desire; love. We even tell ourselves things such as 'If I wear this or that, I'm popular.' or 'If I make this kind of salary, I'll be honored and respected.' or ' If I'm thin, .... blah blah blah.' Well you can see where this is going. We've all done it and may still do to varying degrees.
It's time to stop that practice. It's not healthy for you or any other relationship you are in; love, social, health, food, etc. By telling yourself these little white lies, you attract things you don't really desire; unfaithful relationships, a body that you don't like being in, beautiful clothes purchased but left hanging in the closet.
Thank you Mercury!
We've got some really great energies going on at this moment; Mercury doing its dance and the last Blue Moon until 2020.
Take advantage of this very, very special time and chat with yourself. What are some of things that pop up in your heart (Raphael's chakra designation) that are not a true reflection of you?
Perhaps it is time to go through your closet with a fine eye and discerning hand.
Perhaps it is time to go through the pantry and be rid of those foods that are dulling your energy vs. fueling your power.
Perhaps it is time to go through your various relationships and admit the ones that are draining you. In other words toxic. All relationships, in general fuel each person involved in it. Each relationship wavers as to who is 'leading', but in general it is a 50/50 blend of love; no matter if a friend, social media friend, family and most importantly your beloved.
In fact, a very dear friend and I have reconnected after ten years! Ten Years! We couldn't be happier. Who knows why we lost touch. That is immaterial. But she reached out and we haven't stopped chatting since. She is a friend of the highest caliber; she likes - no loves me for me - not what I may or may not do for her (that is under the toxic relationship arena).
The list and categories in your life can be longer than your arm. So this assignment via Raphael is not meant to overwhelm, but perhaps entice you to see what pops up that is ready to move on. This assignment is designed to empower you via letting go of something you don't desire thus allowing you to love yourself more.
A more empowering YOU. A soul who is beginning to understand the power of Love Towards Self. A soul who is more confidently walking their talk with their head held high.
You can now thank Mercury.
How to Cleanse Angel Cards February 07 2018 1 CommentThere are many ways to clear your tarot and oracle deck(s). Did you know the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck does not require clearing? Read on for more!
FIVE Things you can do to empower yourself spiritually February 02 2018
I am often asked how can I do this or that? The 'This' or 'That' implies to better embracing and owning one own’s spirituality.
It all starts with YOU.
It starts within.
It starts at the beginning.
Meditation doesn’t have to be an event that takes like FOREVA. An enlightening session can be as short as five minutes. It’s an easy practice to start, but can take a lifetime to master, but don’t let that hinder you! Meditation opens new horizons, instills stillness within, offers profound peace and leave.
It’s easy to start; call upon Archangel Michael, The Angel of Protection. As Big Mike enters the room, it may begin to feel a bit warmer; don’t be alarmed, it’s one of his signs. Having him to stand guard will you meditate helps to ascertain that all information you get during your meditation is clear and not muddled. This also helps the ego to go sit in the corner for a bit ... might as well give it the proverbial lollipop too.
Sit in a comfy place. Don't go into hyper drive of Am I doing this right? If you are comfy, that is all that matters. Seriously if you can't sit with feet firmly on the ground because you're more comfortable cross-legged, that is all you will think about. I want to cross my legs! or OOPS, I just crossed my legs, best put them flat on the floor. Just stop. BE comfy.
Now place your hands over your heart and listen to your heartbeat. This helps to slow your mind as well as offering you something to focus on. Your breath will naturally slow all resulting in you deepening you meditative state. Again, it doesn't matter which hand is on top.
Stay in this quiet moment that turns into moments. This connection helps you to connect with your heart; the birthplace of your soul. Once connected, allow yourself to remember this connection, this purity, this love. Revel in this moment. Embrace it.
This simple act begins to open doors and enhancing your spiritual side.
Step TwoGet outside. Take a walk on the wild side ... in nature!
Oh, leave that brilliant magical electronic device at home or in your pocket. NO walk will do you a bit of good if you are staring down at the screen. Besides, you might just trip over a tree root or something if you are too busy looking down.
I have gotten into the habit that whenever Gabi and I leave our home I present a situation that I would like clarity on. I start by asking Archangel Sandalphon as he oversees the Earthstar chakra and reminds me to BE more often which allows him and the other Gang Members to answer. My queries can run the gamut; something as inspiration for dinner to expanding on a new product/project idea to explaining something much deeper.
I then let go of that intention and allow to BEcome inspired.
We, Gabi and I, then have a blast as we go about our magical journey walks. Once we reach a certain spot in the woods, she is allowed off leash and free to romp and go swamping. This leaves me free to enjoy the moments with her. Experience that joy, silliness and BEing at peace.
Why at peace? I am centered; living through the energy of love and joy through Gabi. I am so focused on her that nothing else enters my mind at the moment. Those quite little moments of stillness open doors to answers. It’s in those moments my questions begin to unravel to allow answers to softly dance in. They dance in so softly that it is without a doubt a message from The Gang in response to my queries.
It’s feeling the ground beneath my feet that I become more centered, more grounded if you will. It’s feeling the sun’s warmth on my face that my heart lightens. At the moment we are in the midst of another Arctic blast and I can feel the chill course through my body waking up every cell. It’s glorious to feel alive! That essence only deepens my spiritual connection to the universe that surrounds us.
During our walks stillness creeps in. Life creeps in. Love creeps in. My connection to The Gang and God/Goddess strengthens and is fortified.
Give it a try.
Chose LOVE over FEAR
Unfortunately life does not always go according to plan. In fact, it rarely goes according to plan.
Every day is truly a new beginning. You can chose to dance in lower energies by whining, jumping in the unsavory, or by focusing on lack of whatever and wherever you feel lack in your life.
You can focus on Love. True, easier said than done… at times. However, no matter how low you feel life has become, there is always something there to be grateful for.
Here are some ‘normal’ ideas to whet your appetite and remind you how lovely your life really is.
- Love offered from another; social group, family member, friend
- A sunny day
- A home
- Shoes - one never has enough shoes!
- The ability to see what you already have and offer gratitude. Yep, snuck that one in there.
When we chose a higher vibration (Love), we automatically are choosing to see more of what we can have, BE, and do. Once seen, it’s hard to hide again. Once seen, it is heard. Once seen, it becomes easier to embrace and truly BE.
Choosing fear? Not so much. Let’s just say, you’ll get loads more of what you really don’t want. All the complaining the in world won’t change it. You must change from within and begin to see the beauty of life. The beauty? Only opens you to more of what spirit is offering you.
Chat with Jophiel. She is the Angel of Joy-Filled Power. She’ll be more than happy (pun intended) to put a smile on your face and remind you that you are your most powerful when in JOY.
This is not about taking the closest Zumba or kickboxing class. This is participating in a form of exercise that has a spiritual component such as Tai Chi or Yoga.
This is akin to walking outside and reconnecting with nature and all it offers regularly. However, most of yoga and Tai Chi classes are held inside and therefore one can’t use the excuse that it is cold or rainy in order to partake.
When beginning a more spiritually based form of exercise, one naturally slows down. It’s within that stillness that the heart speaks and speaks loudly. Ego is forced to sit in the corner with a lollipop. Why is that?
One simply cannot perform all those yoga poses with grace and ease! I’ve been known to fall over while attempting Crow. It wasn’t pretty, the class was concerned, but I just sat back and laughed. My worse fear was fulfilled; I fell.
Oh but the lesson! I got back up and am now slowly conquering Crow. One day I shall. In the meantime I am humbled and chuckle through the stumbling and teetering and who knows? Perhaps another fall awaits me.
I chat with Metatron on these days. He oversees the Soul Star chakra (about 6” above your head) and oversees your soul’s mission. I present to him a variety of things; how I wish to BE better is the most common theme. I ask that before class commences and by the time Savasana (corpse/relaxation pose) rolls around, I receive answers. My mind drifts. I allow myself to receive hearings from them. I gather to me insights and inspirations.
In one word? It’s magical.
Let’s face it, who doesn’t LOVE a good oreo cookie? (that’s my guilty dream of late). I don’t keep them in the house for I know once that bag is open, the bag magically becomes empty and they enter my belly. Not necessarily the best idea. Why do i do this and ignoring a non savory craving?
Because I value my body and what it does for me. I recognize that by eating a higher vibration of food, I am honoring me and my spiritual path. This is not to say I don’t have an oreo once in a while, but IF I do, it’s a small snack pack. Of course as time changes, so do my cravings. You know what? They all revolve around sugar. One thing I have learned that if I ‘suffer’ through a couple of days of No More, the cravings POOF vanish and I can go back to eating better for me with greater ease.
Think about it, what is your guilty pleasure? Switch out my current fave of Oreo to your choice. Indulge. Indulge deeply. How do you feel afterwards? If you are anything like me, not so great. Of course there is the initial high, but it quickly morphs into remorse, bloating, muddled thinking and more (we won’t go into ‘potty talk’).
Now think of the times you eat right for you. Your body felt energized. Ideas could come in fast and furious AND you had more than enough energy that allowed you to act upon them. You rarely got sick. You became excited with life and your connection to source was equally clearer.
Because you were fueling your body and therefore your soul. When you fuel at optimum levels, you can more clearly see, hear, know and sense wisdom from the other side. You are more at peace. You radiate an energy of love, BEing centered that has others wishing to know your secrets.
In other words, you can walk your talk with a genuine smile on your face.
It’s uncanny what our bodies tell us when we eat food that is not good for us. No, no, don’t be mistaken, I’m not going on a Thou Shall BEcome vegan or vegetarian or …. This is about eating what is right for you and only you. Bottom line, some folks need to stay a carnivore.
Gabriel is my go to in this arena. He is the Angel of Miracles and oversees the sacral chakra; the place of sensuality. He guides me to juicier and healthier foods and encourages new recipes to continue to expand my horizons, not my waistline.
These five seemingly insignificant steps can help in more ways than you may imagine. Are these the only things you can do? Of course not! I look forward to reading what other tricks you have tried successfully that have opened your spiritual horizons as you dance this thing called Life.

Major Moon Event is Coming, Are you Ready? January 24 2018 2 Comments
We are one week away from the one of the biggest moon events in over 150 years. Yes, really. It's been over 150 years since all of this great movement has melded together. What am I talking about? On January 31, 2018 we will experience a:
Wrapped up in the juiciness of a Full Moon
Allow me a brief definition of each of these magnificent events. A Blue Moon occurs when there is a second full moon in the same calendar month. Our first was on January 1, 2018. The Super Moon occurs when the moon is closer to Earth than normal. A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the Earth and the moon takes on an umber hue; this can only happen when the sun, the moon and the earth are in perfect alignment. A full moon? Its full glory can be shared; all of it is illuminated and if we use the light, it can help us to illuminate our correct path(s).
Auriel, The Lunar Angel, is having a blast with so much energy showcasing her energy and love. This is a true POWER PUNCH of energy and it's upon us now. With this kind of energy melding together, only leads to apple carts being overturned in the figurative sense. Therefore, you will, or are already, a bit more emotional than normal and there's more to it than that. Let's go.
2018 = The Year of Love
This is hopefully not the first time you've read this from me, nor shall I think the last. As 2017, The Year of Transparency, was coming to an end, the mirror was turned on us. We were given the opportunity to be more transparent with ourselves. Who are we? What do we desire?
The tail end of 2017's energy is now melding with 2018's energy. This means the time is ripe to BE gentle on yourself. We can do that and so much more thanks to the event that is beckoning us to do just that.
This is not a time to push forward because you have to or are suppose to. In fact, I've given up my beloved yoga class more than once in lieu of sitting in a nice hot bubble bath. In other words, this is not your invitation to enter a Coach Potato Contest, but rather to find another activity that helps you to refuel.
What can I do?
So glad you asked. This energy is offering a major opening, a chance to go within and ask some of those soul searching questions.
We are asked once again to re-evaluate.
- Re-evaluate what we are doing
- Re-evaluate how we are doing it
- Re-evaluate who is in our tribe
- Our Inner circle from friends
- Our Colleagues
- Our Business associates
- Re-evaluate life
It is when we take those Re-evaluation moments that break throughs can not only happen, but DO happen. Is it easy? If I'm honest, most likely not, but oh the relief and power that comes with making a few changes!
Some symptoms as they connect to the moon and her energies
Many, me included are shifting. There appears to be very little gray area in the symptoms, although there always seem to be some that don't feel a thing. Here goes:
- Food. You are now either a bottomless pit and cannot get enough food in OR seem to not care whether you eat or not. There is a 'weird' hiccup with this; many are not eating much more than fruit in the morning, but come late afternoon/evening - 'what's to eat?' I asked Auriel as to the whys and she responded that the lighter fare in the morning hours help to open up to greater insights. The heavier food later not only helps to ground, but to fuel the seeds that are being planted for your future.
- Sleep. Dreams are more common. Pay attention even if they seem insignificant. Sleep patterns are or seem to be off as well. Try to stick to a routine, no matter what. You'll thank me later.
- Emotions. Pretty much all over the map. To be expected as much is surfacing and ready to be loved more into submission.
So many are struggling in a variety of ways at the moment. Some acts of despair have resulted in over ten school shootings since January! Some cries of help resulted from a trusted relationship ending. Some are more gentle and are hopefully getting the message to its receiver with greater clarity.
This includes you. Warning signs are always given when a personal event/shift is upon us. Always. However we tend to overlook them; they aren't pleasant let's face it. We claim to be too busy to focus on that. We play Scarlett and 'worry about it tomorrow.' and you're right, tomorrow never quite makes it to today.
Today is the day. Take about one hour of your time. Yes I know you're busy, just as I am busy. Go to a new locale; your local library, coffee/tea shop, nature. Someplace where you can dis-engage and listen.
Just yesterday I went to a Salt Spa with the full intention to leave my phone alone. this was my disengaging time! In fact it was left it in the spa locker. I settled in to the warmth and soft energy of salt surrounding me. I wasn't settled for more then ten minutes when they started talking and talking LOUDLY.
Auriel, The Lunar Angel, came in fast and furious as it was apparently time to shift within and prepare for the new for us all.
'You need your phone to take dictation. We've a new project for you.'
Is there NO rest for the weary? This was my first response. Apparently not. I listened and as usual they started in. I quickly hit the Pause Button and shuffled back to the locker room and grabbed my phone and shuffled back. For the next 45 minutes I wrote on my phone. What's it about? Honestly can't share yet for it is certainly in the incubation stage. However I will share it it BIGGER than The Book and The Course... it's that deep and powerful and loving.
Just do it
Bottom line, I listened and am also re-evaluating. I will continue to do what I do, but now taking it deeper for it's time for all of us to shine. Me included. With each level we enter, we are asked to BE. Be more us. BE more present. BE more LOVE. With each blossoming we push forward in our gentleness and BE stronger, more empowered. Why? Because we are BEcoming LOVE.
Enjoy this fantastic moon energy that is upon us, why fight it? Why not go with the flow? Go to that new locale, with a pad of paper or notebook. Settle in and get ready for some very juicy ideas. Will the change be easy? Can't answer that - it all depends on you and your willingness to shine.
Oracle Cards vs. Tarot Cards January 08 2018
What is the difference between Tarot Cards and Oracle Cards?
Tarot cards have been recognized since the 14th Century, but have actually been around much longer. In fact they were originally called Trionfi which is translated to trump. Trionfi was initially the playing card decks we've all known and loved since children.
It can be a case of the chicken or the egg? Did trionfi give birth to tarot or visa versa?
While they may have been used as playing cards then as well, seers would use them as a way to divine their and their client's futures. Through this methodology tarot was born. The original tarot, just like the current everyday deck, had four suits with 14 cards in each suit. Each suite numbered 1-10 with additional face cards (king, queen, jack and knight). However, over time the tarot deck morphed into a deck of over 78 cards with 22 cards per suit. As a sideline, there are stories and myths that tarot became a tool for messages to be relayed to another during times of religious persecution. Not only were they used to tell of the enemy's plan and/or location, but to deliver military instructions. In other words, there is still great mystery that surrounds the tarot and it may take only a few lessons to 'get', but a lifetime to master if one truly wishes to understand the messages they reveal and their energy. It is one worth following if you are called.
I am not a tarot expert and most likely will not be in this life. Through research and interviewing colleagues this is what I found. The major arcana represents major life change. Think of it as getting a bit of a wing slap - time to listen wisely. The minor arcana offers insights into the more detail of life. It's paying attention to the minor details that can add up to big changes.
It is believed that oracle cards debuted long after tarot existed. As mentioned above, tarot is thought to have been born in the 14th Century while oracle cards are given a nod in the 19th century. The term oracle stems from Greek mythology as one would speak to an oracle to divine guidance for any situation. This of course can get confusing. If the early Greeks used oracle cards, did they perhaps precede tarot? We may never know.
By sticking to the greek usage of the word, cards began to be used as oracles. Then morphing into special decks known as oracle cards. What is the reasoning behind the birth of oracle cards? Who knows why initially, but now one could make a case for ease. If you are a user of oracle cards, like me, you may have been drawn to them initially because of their ease of understanding. The message is written clearly on the card; no need to know suits, arcanas, etc.
Oracle cards gained momentum and popularity in France thanks to a fortuneteller named Madame Marie Lenormand. She designed her own deck and was of service to many of noble stature such as Tsar Alexander I and Napolean Bonaparte. Her gift empowered many and instilled expansion for more decks to be born. Upon Madame Marie's death in 1843, a birth of new oracle decks began. The most popular of that time is known as Petite Lenormand:
As you can perhaps see here, it's not a far jump from a tarot and playing card deck; the various suits, etc. Fast forward a little over 100 years and look how many versions of oracle decks that are now published! The many subjects include; angels, faeries, mermaids, unicorns and more. Oracle cards do not follow a strict guideline or look remotely similar from deck to deck; even the number of cards within each deck can vary. While a tarot deck includes 78 cards; with 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana all divided up into four suits.
Another difference between tarot and oracle decks is the connotation of each card. Tarot has multiple meanings per card while oracle cards are much looser in all interpretations. Some oracle cards will offer 'upside down' definition, others will not. Unfortunately some folks, perhaps many, will think that oracle cards are fluff and for those that can't be bothered with learning tarot cards.
Balderdash. Oracle cards can be as powerful as tarot. It all depends on the deck. True, oracle cards tend to be lighter in energy, but do not mistake lightness for lightweight! There can and is great power within oracle decks. It all depends, like anything, the integrity and intention the author is putting into the project.
Which is best for you? Only you can answer that. Tarot, as many of you know, make my hair hurt. I appreciate their value and insights and have many friends/colleagues who use them and I don't hesitate to ask them for their intuitive guidance via their tarot deck. I just know tarot isn't for me.
I'm curious, what is your divination tool of choice?
I was nudged, wing slapped into submission if you will, to write the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck. It's because there are so many other decks that are out there that I balked and said 'we don't need another deck'. The Gang laughed. With their urging and insistence I finally sat down and took dictation (for that is what it felt like) for a solid two weeks. The end result was a deck of 44 cards, a guidebook with alternative interpretation for each card as well as information that is not typically found on each of the 14 angels that offer a combined balanced energy to empower and inspire the user.
This was my first out of the closet project. Stepping out in a larger way. Stepping out certainly in a more visible way; no more hiding at home! Why? It was time, just as it is now time for all of us to step out from behind whatever veil we've allowed to shield us. It is time to stand tall and proclamate who you are and what you are here to do. If you are not sure, it may be time to do some consulting of a treasured oracle deck!
I look forward to reading your comments below and feel free to share the blog!
THREE Super Moons in A ROW? December 13 2017
You read correctly; we have just experienced a super moon and have TWO more coming up consecutively.
Talk about power! Now you get to use this power to your advantage...
Without further adieu, here are the dates:
December 3, 2017
January 1, 2018
January 31, 2018
A super moon occurs at a time when it is the closest to the earth during its elliptical orbit. Since it is closer than usual, the moon may appear quite large as we gaze upon its beauty. This amazing phenomena happens with full as well as new moons. There is typically much more talk of the super moons when they are full as we can visually see it as opposed to the moon being dark during the new moon phase.
Each one of super moons listed above occurs during its full moon phase and promises to be quite the adventure! Because the last of the super moon also coincides with a lunar eclipse! But wait there's more! Because this is the second full moon within the same month the January 31 super moon/lunar eclipse is also a Blue Moon.
What does this mean for you?
Soooooo very much!
With Luna truly in her strongest energy portal on these dates, you are being given ample time to prepare for the new. Isn't it rather fantastical that the next one is on the first day for The Year of Love? I do. What a way to bring in the new year.
Start preparing now for how you would like 2018 to support you. Would you like more clients, customers, higher salary? Would you like a deeper love of self? Would you like to be honored for the divine soul that you are by others? New home? Car? The sky is truly the limit.
The key is the mix of what was just shared; loving self more. How can you start to put you first? This goes against many societal dogmas that one is being very selfish and naughty if they put themselves first.
As I have stated before, even the airlines agree with the mindset of take care of you first! (put on your air mask in case of emergency before helping another). Why? For when you are full, you can more joyously not only help others, but begin to soften and allow yourself to receive more of what is desired, no matter the category.
As we head into the last days of 2017 (Year of Transparency) you are being given the last hurrah to be truly honest with yourself.
- what do you desire?
- how do you wish to be seen?
For every desire, keep asking why for it helps you get to the root of well, why you desire 'it'. Is it for fame and fortune? Is it because you wish to share the love within you with another? Is it to be able to help more with the money you acquire? Is it...?
Hopefully you get the idea. This is a great journaling exercise and one that will not go to waste. I'll be using my Moon Ritual Box to hold those blessed desires and I won't take them out until January 31, 2018. After that, I'll head to our fire pit and release any angst I have regarding those desires to the angels. I will thank them for the love they offer each and every day and have them get to work on the manifestation portion.
The day I walked the Chartres Labyrinth December 07 2017
I was recently in Sedona, Arizona for an extended weekend. The reason for the trip? A Conference filled with other amazing goddesses to learn about Mary Magdalene. Our days were filled with lectures, activities, laughter and hugs. Not to mention a glass of wine or two to celebrate Love.
One afternoon we went to Angel Valley. This entire area is a portal onto itself and one can feel the energy shift as they approach the property. One of the features of this other worldly location is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth. For those of you who may be unaware of this power of this labyrinth, indulge me for a short description:
The original Chartres Labyrinth is located in Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a photo of the original:
As you will notice, or take my word for it, there are eleven circuits that each walks to reach the center. The number 11 has many meanings; one of which represents entering your own divine mastery. Within the center is a Six Petal Rose. Each petal holds the individual energy of Faith, Surrender, Service, Abundance, Forgiveness and Overcoming. A fantastic book that delves into this has been written by Kathleen McGowan and is titled, The Source of Miracles. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It discusses the Lord's Prayer with such power, one really may never need another prayer. Something I have long argued since a child.
Many replicas of the Chartres Labyrinth have been created with great love throughout the world and I was blessed to visit one this past weekend at Angel Valley. As one enters this labyrinth, or any labyrinth, it is requested that you place an intention prior to entering. For by going within and walking, you receive answers. Your intentions could be for greater clarity, vast prosperity to support you on your mission, health, etc.
As you walk with focus and open-ness, you are guided to a variety of ways that respond to your request. Some experience profound awakenings while in the labyrinth, others a gentle urging and everything in between. No matter your experience, it is profound.
Below is The Chartres Labyrinth in Angel Valley:
This labyrinth is huge. It is an exercise to not be rushed. One takes their time as they ponder walk. As I walked I did just that; pondered. Desiring better clarity for me personally; who was I? What am I here to do? How may I be of better service?
Answers softly entered. I entered the Rose and within petal I knelt and released and dug deep to not find answers, but to willingly allow the answers to settle there and integrate to BEcome part of me. As I finished the Petals, I was then directed to walk the petals in the center in reverse. No questions; I obeyed. I circled the other goddeses within the center and noticed the energy ran out to all who would walk the labyrinth that day. The energy was directed to each with great love to help them love more aspects of themselves to fully realize their own greatness.
I then walked clock-wise in the center. As I did so, the question again was as to why... 'helping each to obtain the quality of life they desire through their destiny and service.'
It was time to reverse the walk of the Chartres Labyrinth and bring this information out. As I did, I was more aware of the others walking. I observed each. The paths within the labyrinth are not wide enough for two to comfortably walk abreast. Some took a wide berth. Others acknowledged the other's presence in the form of gassho (prayer position) and a simple Namaste. Others hugged.
Again I was guided. I continued to walk with arms down and hands open.
As I approached each Goddess, Mary told me what they needed; to allow them peace and love in whatever form. Some passed by without a glance. Some reveled in Namaste. Some hugged fiercely. Within that hug a message of love was relayed upon completion with a deep simple look of the eye. A soul to soul look.
No one form is better than the other.
However Mary Magdalene continued to instruct and educate and remind me of the metaphor this represents of life.
- Some may pass in your life only briefly. No exchange is needed of any kind.
- Some may only need a moment of recognition at any level in order to move forward.
- Some may walk with you.
Each path is perfect for the person. No judgment allowed. Each path is greeted with honor and sent along with love; whether is it is in the physical aspect or energetic. Each path can be filled with great love. Within that love is truth, joy and the essence of BEing.
Below is our beloved walking... yes I am in there as well.
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!
Attitude is Gratitude! November 21 2017BEing grateful can be easy for the lovely things, but can you BE grateful for the not so lovely too?
New Moon and Her Energies for November, 2017 November 17 2017Tap into the New Moon's Energies along with Auriel and Chamuel to allow love of self to come forward and prepare for the NEW.
Oh those numbers.
Those magical numbers that are in our face every single day constantly offer insights and tidbits into the various ways we can BE and what can be in store for us all.
The upcoming Gateway is no exception.
November is the 11th month and on the 11th day a doorway is once more opening for those ready to step more into their Mastery of BEing.
There is no end to this, ahem, race. There is no gold medal to get there first. Therefore take your time and enjoy the ride.
The Gateway is a powerful opportunity to sit in reflection and meditate while focusing on the energies of LOVE.
Start with LOVE of self. Chat with Chamuel, the Angel of Self Love, to pry open your heart allowing LOVE to enter. It is through loving self more that more of what is desired is seen and embraced by each of you reading this.
What we desire? Yes.
Perhaps a romantic relationship.
Perhaps financial freedom.
Perhaps great ease of health to allow more physical activity.
As the saying goes, it does start within. Remember, nobody can love you more than you love yourself; including the universe. That is not to say it is not presented and offered on a daily basis, but if you are not feeling worthy to receive it, you will push it away. It gets pushed away via self sabotage, degrading self talk, anger and more. Oh the excuses are freely offered as to the why it cannot happen.
I will continue to remind you until the day I drop dead that
You Are Worthy of ALL You Desire
Sit with that little ol' sentence until you feel a shift within. It may take a moment or two. They are not asking you to hear the choir of angels singing your praises, but just enough of a shift that it makes you smile. This is the first step of knowing that you are indeed worthy. The first step towards manifesting what is desired and no longer settling.
I'm lighting a Chamuel Candle in honor of YOU. That is how committed I am to helping to inspire and empower YOU. Sit with the picture below and feel its energy coming to you. Allow the LOVE to permeate into every cell within.
You Are Loved
Why does the Angel Chatter...Heavenly Guidance Book even exist? November 08 2017 1 Comment
Why did I create the book, Angel Chatter...Heavenly Guidance?
Quite simply because you asked.
You asked at shows.
You asked as a client.
You asked as a future student (thank YOU for sticking it out with me and my many rough drafts)
Answering is rather simple. I can talk an ear off an angel, but now ask me to write about my experiences and my knowledge with them?
That's a whole new different kind of wing in my world. A Wing of Empowerment that I didn't feel comfortable unfurling and showing; until now.
This book has taken years to write. Yes, really, years. Yes, there was a move or two thrown in for us personally which gave me a perfect excuse to delay and procrastinate on it. However, every single time I was prepared to let it drift off into that good night folks would start clamoring for THE Book (as I affectionately began calling). When was it going to be done? Could I teach?
Well you get the idea.
Your clamoring began to be incessant. Thank you. You propelled me to finish it. You propelled me more out of my comfort zone to share my knowings; the most uncomfortable growth spurt in a while. You encouraged me.
I listened and acted. I listened to the angels and got wing slapped more than once; some of those slaps came via you.
Time to put on those Big Girl Angel Wings and soar. Time to finish 'er up and release it. Time to BE, well me.
As many of you know, THE Book is now born. THE Book is being received all over the world. THE Book is here to not only entertain, but to inform and empower you through the help of the angels and the endless ways they can help you.
Each chapter switches energy, for it is a different angel.
Each holds within it a sacred mandala that has incorporated the angel's sigil and therefore has become a true powerful work of art.
This baby has become the base of The Authorization Course which is in its first official year and reading into the students feedback is superseding their expectations. Look into if becoming more confident with clients or simply building a closer relationship with the angels calls to you.
Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for pushing me out of my zone. Thank you for BEing you.
Did you ever wonder? November 01 2017 2 CommentsDoes your mind ever play games with you? Mine does. I begin to wonder if this illusion we call life is real and if I am who I say I am.
How is the soul always evolving? October 12 2017
Life can be a funny thing, can't it?
We yearn for different, better, etc. and yet we fight against the change. We crave the change and then run from it when it's presented. And yet we are constantly changing and evolving. We really can steer this vehicle to our advantage. We can evolve with more grace.
Please try to let that angst go... just a wee bit. Just this week we had a fantastic discussion in our Authorization Course conference call. What became very obvious was that no matter the situation, most would rather stay with what they know vs. the unknown.
The unknown is just that, unknown. It's vast. It's open ended. It's scary. Oh, but how fun is that?! You get to re-create how you wish to live your life! In other words, you get to live life on your terms.
It's loving yourself MORE.
It's in this Love Fest of Self that the soul truly evolves.
To put it in hopefully a less confrontational way; hasn't your diet changed over the years? If you are like any red-blooded human, you've been on a diet at some point. Whether the diet lasted to meet your goals or was only a passing fancy; you desired change.
Likewise, haven't your taste in clothes also changed? I'm preparing to go out for a very nice dinner tonight with my husband and came across a dress that had me wondering why it's even still in the closet. Off to the donation pile it has gone.
These outwardly changes are just a bit of an indicator of what we are processing internally.
When those internal shifts are acknowledged, greater change is then reflected outwardly. Think to a time when you stood up for yourself. Whether it was an abusive relationship that you ended (makes me very happy you did so). To ending a bullying situation because being a doormat was no longer an option. To perhaps simply speaking up and no longer desiring to be the lovely wallflower. You got more comfortable with who you are why you here.
You spoke up.
Maybe, you used the Askfirmation
Why is it safe for me to BE me?
This one Askfirmation alone will change your world for the better for the rest of your life. Why? The Universe conspires to work in your favor due to the positive question you are now asking. You take your power back bit by bit and you evolve.
You come home to BE.
It is taking that road less traveled. Perhaps being a leader in your field of choice. Being a leader can be lonely! You walk proudly ahead and never give up on your dreams. You pave the way so others may take an easier and smoother path. You follow through. Is each new adventure a door opener so others may find you? Maybe. Sometimes it is more a private adventure for you to better understand who you are and why you are here. No matter if you are a chosen leader, or not, you are, through your actions, teaching others how to BE.
Simply by BEing you, you are a leader. You are an inspiration.
You better understand it is about the journey and not the destination. We truly never know what is around the corner at the soul level, but we do keep moving forward. Our soul itches to BE and in the process of BEing, we chose a path and we grow and we dance through those unknown turns.
Rarely is path straight for long. Wouldn't life be boring if it was always so neatly laid out? I think so too. However, a straight path is presented periodically it can be thoroughly enjoyed to catch a breath and revel in how far one has traveled.
We have all had undesirable stuff happen to us. Some more horrific than others and I am in no way belittling the horrific. However, if we can take each situation for what it offers us at a soul level and grow from that, we get to never experience that disharmony again.
It's taking that road less traveled that you lead. You lead through your example of living life to the fullest; on your terms. You no longer strive to impress or mimic others. You realize and own the fact that you don't wish to be like them.
You desire to BE you.
THAT is when the road less traveled turns to LOVE.
Love of self.
Love with no conditions.
You better accept your foibles and your human imperfections; and while not making fun of self, you acknowledge those beautiful imperfections and realize this is just of the many ingredients that make the complete, beautiful package known as you. This is where Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love, is your winged bestie. She will continue to remind you to put you first. She will remind you to conduct Acts of Self Love that leave you rejuvenated, replenished and loving self more.
As you continue to evolve and come back to self, the universe at large notices without you saying a blessed word. Their response? Loving you more for who you are, not what you are going to do for them.
Why? Because you are evolving.
Please leave any comments below and feel free to share the LOVE!
What on Earth is going on? September 13 2017 2 Comments
So many of you have reached out with questions of disbelief, low energy levels, not feeling 100% and more.
I get it.
Let's look to our most recent past.
We had a partial lunar and solar eclipse.
We had our first full solar eclipse in decades here in the States.
Two hurricanes just barreled through the States with unrelenting force, leaving too much devastation in their wake.
Think the energy is churned up? Of course it is! Why wouldn't it affect you? No matter where you live, energy is energy and it travels. This shift has hit everyone, at various levels. I'm no exception. I returned to our home away from the beach fer reals over the past few days. While our home was not in disarray, it needed some TLC and waking up.
Wake it up I did; cleaning each and every room top to bottom. Baseboards, windows, files, etc. all cleaned and purged. As I went from room to room I carried Michael's Sacred Candle with me bringing in the energy of protection while the kaka got swept up and away.
The house now feels great.
However, I was pretty exhausted (not a great way to start show season) and I realize a new not so nice portal had opened in our backyard. Even Gabi was anxious going out the back to play, relax and well whatever dogs do. She confirmed what I thought/knew; something was icky out there. Work was quickly assigned to The Gang and Mystical Creatures to close it off and send the unwanted energies back home (we don't displace around here and leaving someone else to deal with it all - not good karma in my book).
In the midst of this I facilitated a guided meditation with my students last night. It went well; however the reaction wasn't the typical WOW! Many felt a bit afraid afterwards - OH DEAR -
Ironically prior to the meditation we chatted about encountering new things - mystical creatures included - and how at times we push things away even if it is the very thing that is need at that moment in time. Why? Bottom line, it's something new. New can be scary. Especially if it is a powerful new tool often one doesn't feel worthy to have such a tool. I get that as well. I've turned away help many a time because I would think who am I to garner such assistance?
I toss back to you - why don't you deserve all the help you request/desire? Especially now with the energy swirling and twirling all over the place. Why wouldn't you allow outside assistance from The Winged and Haloed Gang or a Crystal (we have super cool sceptres), or a Unicorn or a Centaur or a ....
See where I'm going with this? Life is about asking and receiving. Not just the winning lottery ticket, but also in the day to day of life. From having your home protected as you clean, to your yard so it's safe for all to enjoy, to yes maybe winning the lottery.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one powerful topic... allowing the assistance to come through even if you haven't asked for it. Trust me, they know when you are ready.
The time is now... September 12 2017 2 Comments
The time is now to remember to breathe and breathe deeply.
The time is now to BE grateful for all that is already in your world.
The time is now to cheer on others as they march to their drum.
The time is now for you to fly your Freak Flag.
The time is now for you to BE the Star of your life.
Why I LOVE you August 31 2017 1 Comment
I DO LOVE YOU FOR:
The way you treat all the same, no matter their vocation
The way you get excited about YOUR passions
What is in your heart
That's what gets me excited and why I LOVE you.
Thank you for BEing you.
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.
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment below. Feel free to share as it helps others find The Chatter!
