Isn't It Time? May 22 2019 2 CommentsIsn't it time to stop lying? Isn't it time to Speak Your Truth? Even if speaking your truth means some relationships go adrift. Isn't it time you began living a life you are excited about? Read on to take the first step.
Good Girls Can Be Tenacious, but first... April 03 2019
As you know, I'm a self appointed Good Girl. While it is a badge worth wearing, it's not worth owning.
BEcause it can hold one back. If a goddess totally embraces her Good Girl persona, well then, she must always BE good. No more rebel, system buster, leader and more. For Good Girls over the decades, by society standards, are submissive and afraid, yes I said afraid, of shining their gorgeousness whether it be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual gorgeousness.
Let's stop this, shall we?
Why Stop BEing Just A Good Girl?
You are multi-faceted, yes? Can you not walk and chew gum at the same time? Of course of you can. Of course you can!
Singer and songwriter, Peggy Lee said it best in her song:
I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then
Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
The Many Faces of Good Girls
Look around you. If you are sitting by yourself at the moment, google Goddess Faces. Every single one of those goddesses is different from the other. From skin color, to size, to hair, to age and well you get the idea. Each one is not only physically gorgeous, but exudes self confidence and quiet power that draws you in.
Each one of them tells a brilliant story; herstory. Each one of them is tenacious - having a quality of determination and never giving up or letting go.
Why? For she recognized her innate wisdom and needed to share it with others. Some via large platforms as public speaking, books and more. Some on a quieter more inner circle platform; for those with eyes to see and BE encouraged to BE their authentic self. Both have great value for each creates a ripple for others to give witness to and empower themselves to come out and play.
Each ripple creates more ripples. Before you know it, you ARE affecting so many more than you personally come in contact with. Therefore, what is the image you are putting forth?
Empowerment or Belittlement?
Things to ponder.
What Are Your Many Faces?
Now, I'm not talking about make-up vs. make-up less face. I'm talking about your face.
When you look at another, you can often get an immediate glimpse of their psyche at that particular moment. For example, I saw a practitioner yesterday and today. She is gleefully working on my shoulder.
Her first comment today was you look so different; calm more at peace.
While I had on my first time to meet you face on yesterday, the pain I was in was evident (it's a shoulder thing). Through her gifts she is helping muscles to relax; much less pain and therefore my face and body movements display that.
Look at yourself in the mirror. This is not a critique of what hairs are turning gray or wrinkles emerging or bags blossoming.
Instead it is a look into your soul. Is that soul happy? If it is, KUDOS to you!
If it is not, what could you do to lessen that load. What could you do to brighten your day? What could you do that says YES to you?
More things to ponder.
Look it, we've all had crap happen in our lives; death, dissolutions, arguments, illness (to self or loved one) and more.
On the flip side, we've all had glorious things happen in our lives; children, marriage, recognition for our innate gifts, sunny days, vacations, flowers, lollipops and unicorns (just making sure you are still reading ;) ).
It's what we focus on or allow to take over that can de-rail what we wish to do.
It's time to take a more in depth look into our psyche and remember our individaul WHYS.
- Why do I wish to this or that?
- Why do I wish this or that to happen?
- Why do I desire better health?
- Why do I desire more money and less bills?
- Why do I wish a partner to share my life?
Why bother doing all thinking thought provoking deep work? Because then you have answers. Then you gain greater clarity of what truly motivates you. Once you have answered the WHYS - it's important to keep asking in one arena until you hit a nerve that makes you think harder and more profoundly - you gain clarity. You gain and remember your tenacity. You move forward with great grace for now you have a mission and it is going to be much harder to derail you from this point forward.
What Angel to Call Upon for This Mission?
Uriel, Angel of Safety, once again comes forward.
Because he, like no other will help you to feel safe to BE you. The real you. The authentic you. The glorious you.
Focus on his energy coming forth in his mandala below. You are welcomed to meditate on its energy to help unleash what you have been hiding.
It's time for you to come out and play now.
Good Girls Can BE.... A Rebel and Proud of It! March 27 2019
As the eldest and only child for seven years and the 'girl'... I adopted and embraced the essence of Good Girl for decades.
You know, the girl who says yes because she has too out of obligation. The good girl who doesn't dare raise her freak flag for the fear of being well freakish. The good girl who rarely rocks the boat because life is better when calm.
Does this ring a bell for you and your life?
Shifting the Paradigm of BEing a Good Girl
This energy has been building for years and in various small pockets around the globe it has emerged and blossoming to never turn back.
This hit a nerve while traveling through France last summer. I had the great fortune to connect with many, many amazing people and one in particular whom I shall call Susan. Susan is a grandma and at first glance very proper, unassuming and rather conservative. OH NO... looks deceive! The more I chatted with Susan the more I realized it was her safety persona. This woman is a flat out rebel!
Stories abounded as she shared snippets of her life. Someone dared to give her the moniker of Bad Nana. This really rubbed me the wrong way for what was she doing that was bad?
She was breaking molds of what a proper grandma ought to act like. She was breaking molds and bending rules since a young lass at private school. She was a rebel. That is the name I proudly gave her... Rebel Nana. She questioned it at first, but when I explained that she was actually a role model and to not allow title, age, etc to define one's self. She LOVED it... or so I am led to believe.
This one goddess taught much... so much simply by BEing. BEing glorious, sassy rebellious and I LOVED it. Why? She is BEing genuine to her.
Isn't that what so many desire?
A Good Girl has been
For centuries it has been expected and doled out that men and women can do certain things and to stay put in those lanes and how dare you skip to another lane.
Those defined good girls followed their dictated path and some quite passive about it. Others? Dare to bend if not break molds by BEcoming trailblazers in fields across the the spectrum. Fields from aviation, medicine, space, and so much more.
Women gathered and won the right to vote in the United States. Women continue to gather and collaborate to create. Create change, create true equality - lip service is no longer an option. Good Girls are doing this and so much more.
What about Life as a Good Girl?
BEing a good girl no longer means one has to bend and succumb to what is expected of them. Does this mean one comes out with guns blazing? Of course not - not in the metaphorical or literal sense. It does mean one first must realize what their chosen whys are.
- Why do I desire this or that?
- Why do I wish to live here or there?
- Why do I prefer...?
When one begins to dig deep and no longer deny who they are by definition of their gifts is a BIG step in itself. Just today another goddess reached out because she has been approached since a child as one folks feel safe to share their story. Why? She is a natural healer, highly empathic and more. However, she has been in denial for decades which so saddens me. However she now recognizes some of her whys and can no longer hide. Thus we begin working together to help her remember her beautiful essence so she then helps many others.
What are your whys? If you are not sure of even one, it's time we chat to unleash a few to start and grow from there. Why? BEcause it is just one of the many things I LOVE doing; helping others to shine their essence.
Good Girls and Angels
There is so much to chat about in this one arena alone that I've actually had a somewhat difficult time isolating just a few examples to help get you juiced up about YOU.
What angel did I go to first? Uriel hands down. Why? Uriel is the Angel of Safety. He is the consummate winged reminder that YOU are Safe to BE YOU. It is no longer acceptable to pretend to BE someone you are not. It is no longer acceptable to hide in hopes it might go away. It is no longer acceptable to dull your gorgeous, beautiful light.
Why? BEcause your light is so needed at this moment at this time - yes like right now.
Isn't it time you embraced your inner Rebel?
What happens when you Beloved 'pet' leaves? January 23 2019 2 Comments
The Back Story
Many of you know, some of you may not... but now you shall.
Our Beloved girl, Gabi, has left us.
My husband were on our first vacation (more than two consecutive days) in over six years; the verdict is still out long ago, but I digress. We returned on a Friday and had intended to spend a day or two extra with my folks.
Gabi had other plans.
She was staying with my truly amazing sister and as par for her regular morning routine, came downstairs, went outside, laid down and couldn't get back up. That is the text we received.
My heart plummented.
We had separate cars and away we went, back north to BE with her. I knew from the get go it was to be her last physical day with us. We arrived at the 24 ER Vet with not so good news.
Cancer was everywhere in her abdominal area. This is what caused the drama in the morning. A tumor had ruptured on her spleen and there was now internal bleeding. Stable at the moment, but who knows when the next rupture would happen; for it was inevitable.
After MUCH heart searching, chatting with her and more, we did the most humane thing. For IF she had come home, there could be no more swamping expeditions. She could leave us without a moment's notice and go while we were doing errands, sleeping, etc. It helped tremendously, tremendously when students reached out to share that Gabi had already visited them and told them it was her last day and there was nothing we could have done to prevent this. Gabi went to them BEFORE we knew anything. She was smart that way....
How we are moving on from our 'pet' leaving us
A pet can be just that a pet. A four legged critter that is dependent on your for food, shelter and its general well being. I know you, and that is not how you would view it, and neither do we. A 'pet' in our mind happens to have four legs (or two, if it's a bird), but a member of the family. It's a soul you confide in, explore with and attempt to BE the person that they see in you.
It's Love at the core. Never pressure to BE anything but yourself.
Gabi's departure was quick. Yes, I had inklings, she told me, but it was one of those rare times I really wish I wasn't so intuitive and hoped beyond hoped that I was wrong.
It's not been easy. As you too can easily attest if you've ever been in this situation.
What did I do? I painted, no not like Picasso, but walls; lots of walls. I needed something somewhat mindless that allowed me to absorb, shift energy and meditate while being 'productive'. I re-created the healing space where all client work happens. I painted our family room and have plans for other rooms as well.
I ventured out for a 'magical' walk within days of her leaving. My husband was grieving as well - for it is grief, but we were each attempting to be strong for the other. Off to the woods I went. I screamed, I cried, I got angry. Hopefully all out of earshot of any other human. My legs were heavy. It was difficult to walk even what was considered our 'short' walk (3+ miles)
The first week was tough. I cannot lie. Even our cats were in mourning. They could be found frequently laying in 'Gabi's' Room - designated as this was the room she always scampered off to to enjoy her treats. Flowers and cards and sweet memories from students, clients and followers of Gabi and me. We were beyond touched that we had through by simply sharing, had touched so many of you.
The healing continues
The painting has slowed down.
I've taken two more walks in the woods. One with a friend; we both got teary at memories, but they were good cries. We sat near the river, in the snow, like children and just listened and observed.
That was healing in itself; allowing ourselves to BE.
I went for the most recent walk just yesterday. I had a productive morning filled with clients and possible business dealings. Blog posting was attempted but kept getting stalled; it simply wasn't flowing. I was told in no uncertain terms to go for a walk.
Meh. It was cold and I felt somewhat whiny.
THEY, Sandalphon, Auriel, Thuriel; oh heck the entire Gang were persistent... Get Outside!
Finally I complied and headed off. It was getting late and the sun was far past its zenith, but I kept going. Once the woods were entered, I realized getting to the river was not possible due to the lighting. Maybe turn around now? Maybe go to her watering hole?
Eh, I'm turning around.
Lo and behold Gabi appeared, very excited!
'Come on I want to show you something cool!"
I kept trudging along. Upon entering the watering hole area, there stood a beautiful doe. While this may not seem remarkable in itself, it is. NEVER had we seen deer this close in these woods and we had traversed them often enough! Certainly we had seen the back side of many as they ran off, but never as close as this and this still and this curious about what was happening.
But wait, there's more! There was not one, not two, but THREE does! All stopped to look and convey a message. We had a 'moment' of soul exchange. Photos were able to be taken as proof and off they went.
A few more tears were shed. At least the ugly crying had stopped; so there is improvement.
The next steps since Gabi's Departure
She had made a promise to me and me to her.
Her promise is to BE always with me and may come back in dog form so stay tuned. She will always protect me; in fact I heard her growl while in the kitchen yesterday. Not sure whom she was miffed at, but I gratefully accepted it.
My promise? To complete her book, The Gabi Life. For those of you that have been with me, like foreva, may recall this book. No publishing house desired it, so I took it as a sign it wasn't worth pursuing.
Back to the book we go. Why do I know this? It's back in the forefront of things to accomplish. People must remember, Grace Always Begins Inside. There are a few more projects to complete, but then I dive fur and all back into it. Feel free to nudge me periodically...
Until then, embrace each day as the miracle it is.
It is SUPERmoon time! January 16 2019
If we need more proof that 2019 IS The Breakthrough Year, we only need to look to the heavens for confirmation.
Why is that? We have not one, not two, but three super moons in three consecutive months! A super moon, if you are not aware, is loosely defined when the moon is closer than typical to the Earth which results in her appearing quite large in all her lunar magnificence!
We kick off on January 20 for the Blood Super Moon. This super moon is also in conjunction with a lunar eclipse; which is the last lunar eclipse until the year 2021. So while this is not as rare as a total solar eclipse, it does offer keen insights and power for those that choose to harness her energy.
Her? Of course - Luna aka the moon is feminine in all of her watery energy. Auriel, The Lunar Angel, helps to define and brings forth the messages that Luna wishes to share to help all BEcome more empowered.
The Energetic Impact of Super Moons
On your average full moon, the tides can and often are, higher. More babies are born. More crimes committed. In other words, it is a highly charged time when everything and anything can happen.
Now magnify that energy during the super moon and you have a glimpse or an inkling what can happen.
This is not the time to make any sudden decisions or certainly not ones from an emotional standpoint - no marriage proposals now please! It is also not an ideal time for contractual work as emotions will run higher than normal and the fine print and details can be overlooked. Relationships may form, but if formed during these times they are often short-lived - here for a reason!
Events may happen, especially with The Blood Moon on January 21, that can churn up anxiety, feelings of lack, etc. Observe those emotions and let go. These are feelings of un-ease and un-worthiness that are deeply settled in the psyche of the mind and while do reflect a deeper belief system, it/they do not reflect the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter being that you can BE who you are without belittling another, without riding the coattails of another and so on. BE you.
This is the perfect time to think before you act or speak (and I'll repeat this in the next section again to BE sure you read it properly)
This all sounds rather like you wish to stay in bed with the covers pulled up high? Never fear, the Super Blood Moon Eclipse has many benefits and perks...
What this time is great for is clearing.
Harness the Energy of the Super Blood Moon
You have had ideas inkling in the background. Perhaps a project you have started, then stopped, and started and stopped multiple times. Now is a grand time to look at it from a different perspective and fix what has been bothering you. Time to tweak it. Time to say YES to it and therefore YOU.
Now is the perfect time to de-clutter and clear the energy of your sacred space. I did a blog post on this very topic recently. Click on the link to read more. Remember, this is one of the many services I offer privately, so if you require assistance in your space, please email me. Why bother to clear the clutter? Bottom line? All stuff holds energy and unless your stuff makes you happy, what kind of vibe do you think is getting put into what ought to be sacred space?
This is the perfect time to end things; relationships included. Yes, that relationship that you are staying in because you think there is nothing better in store for you. That relationship that if you dwell upon it for a nano-second does not boost, support or send love your way. That relationship that has you reliant on them for they are ultimately controlling. Those are not relationships that serve; Please say YES to you and move on.
Now is a great time to observe. Yes, observe. Observe your trigger points. What situations put you off kilter?
What emotions arise that push you off balance?
This is the perfect time to think before you act or speak. No flying off the handle since you are BEing forewarned.
We're Just Getting Started
As I mentioned earlier in this post, the Super Moon of January is the first of three. The next is on February 19, 2019 (2/19/19) and the last on March 21, 2019 (3/21/19). There is much numerical significance in these dates...
For example, 219 (thanks to Sacred Scribes interpretation) says it is time to focus. Focus on you, your life purpose and mission... I'm hearing the drum song, aren't you?
The last date, 319 says it is time to step into greater confidence with the assistance of the angels as well as Ascended Masters and own your brilliance.
Need I say more?
Let's Wrap This Up
We are entering a very high powered, high energy time thanks to multiple Blood Moons. It has the potential to throw you off balance. If it does, allow it to BE so. Then adjust your sails, regroup and sail more easily back to your center.
You are being forewarned of this impending energy. Energy that has actually already started. Energy that has been amping up for a couple of months on only to explode metaphorically in the first quarter of this year.
Prepare now by getting rid what doesn't serve you. Prepare now by saying YES to you. IF you need assistance, you know where to find me.
As some of you know, 2019 has been dubbed
The Breakthrough Year
by The Angels, aka The Gang.
Every soul will experience their own personal Breakthrough. Can you imagine (not to quote John Lennon) every person BEing? Can you imagine every soul shining? Can you imagine the possibilities?
What is a 'Breakthrough'?
Great question. A breakthrough is saying YES to you.
A Breakthrough is living a life that is more expansive vs. restrictive.
A Breakthrough is BEing supported.
A Breakthrough is BEing recognized for your innate talents by the world at large. Does this mean each soul is going to waltz down the red carpet and have their name in lights? Of course not. However by BEing recognized for your innate talents gathers to you your tribe, your peeps, your fellow Freak Flag Holders.
Your Breakthrough is YOU LOVING YOU. One tends to add phrases such as 'more purely', 'more deeply', 'unconditionally', but doesn't that go against the very essence of Love? Love IS pure. Love IS deep. Love IS unconditional.
By Loving YOU, you say YES.
By Loving YOU, you experience your Breakthrough.
How to Experience Your Breakthrough in 2019
I don't do resolutions. Really. I feel like a failure when they are not accomplished and that kinda goes against my grain of thinking; disempowerment. Instead I latch onto one word for the year that greatly assists me in making decisions.
My word for this year is this:
IF I am to have my Breakthrough on the personal as well as soul mission front, I must BE proactive in creating those dreams. Even if one wishes to win the lottery, they gotta play! Hence proactive - buy that ticket!
I do take proactive a bit deeper. Is this idea, product, thought, action in alignment with me? I ask my soul by placing my hands over my heart. When my heart expands and does a proverbial Happy Dance, I know it is in alignment with me.
If, however, all goes quiet; flatline so to speak, then I know it is not meant for me. This does not mean it is a bad idea. It's just not one for me personally or professionally.
Give it a whirl for yourself.
Chose Your Yearly Word Theme
I'm Here to Help YOU
Y'all know what I do; write, hold sacred space in private sessions, weekends and more. How may I help you? If not sure, reach out via email and let's see how I may assist you to experiencing multiple Breakthroughs in 2019.
Archangel Michael (aka Big Mike) and Archangel Gabriel are two of my Go To Angels pretty much daily.
Because I chat with them so often, I'm going to divvy up their information within this post. If you wish more, be sure to check out my latest book, Angel Chatter, Heavenly Guidance.
As I mentioned, my nickname for Archangel Michael is indeed Big Mike. Why? His energy is very intense, hot and oh does he have the kind of hair that Fabio would melt for!
Michael is akin to THE BEST Big Brother you have had or will have. Why is that you ask?
Let me tell you:
Archangel Michael is THE premier protector.
Did you know he is the patron saint of the United States police force? TRUE! What do police do? Protect.
This is exactly why he is the first angel I introduce my students, clients and anyone who will listen. Why? I wish you to better understand how to BE protected as you go about your day whether it is a ho-hum day up to your spiritual evolution.
Whenever we do a show or host a private client for the weekend I spritz a bit of Michael's spray around our space making it more protected and safe for clients and customers to relax and BE and allow.
Take Archangel Michael on the road with you.
I chat with him incessantly when we travel. As many of you know, we travel extensively for Angel Chatter for lots of fun metaphysically based shows. I surround our car with his energy. If I start feeling a tad antsy, I call upon him again and I immediately relax and the cars and trucks surrounding us offer more space.
Flying? Michael surrounds the plane and protects all who are aboard. It helps one to relax and truly enjoy the journey more than ever.
Big Mike and your spiritual practice
BEFORE you initiate any practice; meditation, prayer, healing (for self or others) call upon him. ALWAYS. No matter the situation. Why? You're never quite sure what energy is out there (trust me... you don't know) and why not take an extra few moments and BE protected?
Seriously, why not?
Envision his powerful mandala that was channeled for the purpose of my latest book as you lay the ground work for your sacred space; whether it be your healing space, your home, office, hotel room and more. This helps to set up an energetic grid that protects all who enter.
Call on Big Mike. Feel his energy surge into your space; it often becomes warmer. Some report it feels a bit more crowded; why wouldn't it be? It's now filled with angels who are there to protect! These two signs are just an inkling one of his many signs that he and his legions are indeed with you.
As you know, Archangel Michael doesn't work alone. Oh no! One of his 'gang' members is Gabriel, The Angel of Creativity.
Archangel Gabriel can add some spice to your life!
As Archangel Gabriel oversees the sacral chakra; the place of sensuality, sexuality, creativity and birth (in all its levels), it ought not be terribly difficult to see how he can and DOES infiltrate your world with a lotta spice, jazz and wake up calls in the metaphorical sense.
All of Gabriel's essences, well most of them, are ones that are proven to help one BEcome more alive. It's getting out of the rut that we all so often can into; clean house, do errands, must do, must do, must do that one can easily forget how exciting life really is. Even if it means taking your beloved dog for a walk. yes, that is indeed a Gabi plug and a soft reminder that we are yet to go on our magical walk today - without the phone on. We simply BE and Gabriel is on hand at all times to show references and get us both excited about where we are at that exact moment in time. It usually involves Gabi swamping and me laughing at her adorable and HAPPY face.
Gabriel helps one to enjoy their food. Not to eat mindlessly as one drive's about or stuffing your face while watching TV. It's about eating and enjoying the food that is fueling you. Enjoying the subtleties of the spices and textures. Drinking in the aroma; if you love coffee, don't you sigh when you walk into a great cafe or am I the only one? You feel shoulders relax and your entire BEing calms down and yet giddy at the prospect of a great cup of coffee coming at you.
Archangel Gabriel and your spiritual pursuits
Whether you are steeped in a spiritual practice, desire to be or are very artistic, Gabriel is my go to when I write and create new products.
It's the Art of Allowing in the creative sense. If there is a dilemma happening, chat with him to unveil a creative solution.
Are you an artist? Writer? Poet? Journal Designer? Gardener? Wood Working Expert? Chef? All of the above? Gabriel is indeed already in your backup of assistants helping you to devise, design, create.
Do you wish to hit the 'Pause' Button and start anew? Gabriel will certainly help you re-invent yourself by presenting a variety of suggestions via a friend, client, family, song, etc. that will get you thinking... what if. Your job is to listen with not only open ears, but an open heart. You've asked, now listen.
Those what if's are his way to present creative ideas and how to better empower you through actions, thoughts and more. Listen closely. Trust me, he's always there to assist.
Don't you adore Archangels Michael AND Gabriel?I know I do and LOVE working, playing and chatting with them. Not only for my personal life but as I help clients and students BEcome true to themselves. Give it a whirl... you are going to LOVE chatting with them!
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?
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.

Who are Archangels Michael and Gabriel and how do they help you? January 17 2018
If you are interested in any things woo-woo and/or angels, odds are you know of or have at least heard of Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel. When I think about it, looking back they were probably first in line as part of my initiation of remembering.
Whenever I start introducing anyone to the angelic realm, Archangel Michael, or alias Big Mike, is always first. Why? He is the Angel of Protection. As a leader and teacher I want to be assured that you are protected as you delve deeper into your spiritual practice as you go higher.
Big Mike is one of the few angels mentioned in the bible. He oversees the solar plexus and throat chakra; our place of power and communication. How great is it that when he is by your side that communication becomes easier! When Michael begins to enter your life more consciously, your ride of empowerment is just beginning in earnest.
Michael is the patron saint of the police force in the United States. His color association is yellow and blue. What colors are the the United States police force?
You got it, yellow and blue. Somewhere, somehow, someone knew this and guessing had a deep connection with Archangel Michael and decided to bring that protective power forward. In fact, I’ve had clients share their stories that while in the courtroom they as well as others actually see him there! He’s just cool that way. As any self respecting angel has a tool, Michael is no different. Since he is THE protector, his tool of choice? A sword! He can and will cut through any crap in your life, stand guard (with a smile on his face) and do battle for you when needed.
As all names have a meaning, Michael is no different. His name is translated to mean, “Who Is As God.” What a beautiful reminder that can easily apply to you. YOU are a true reflection of God/Goddess. A beautiful being filled with love, light, joy, immense grace, with a bit of quirkiness thrown in for good measure. As a reflection of this energy, you have the ability to do all you desire. You know, those dreams that can keep you up at night, those dreams that feel real and leave you breathless due to all the beauty and joy it gives to you. Those are the kind of insights that the angels can sneak in to remind you of who you are and what you are meant to be doing. Michael holds one of the keys to help open those doors for you. His question to you is…. ‘Will you step through?’
I’ve had a personal encounter with each of the angels that I directly work with; therefore there is of course one for Big Mike:
It had been one crazy strand of a chaotic few weeks that actually spanned the entire spring season. It started with my dad having a massive heart attack - or the Day the Elephant Danced as he calls it. (It felt like an elephant was dancing on his chest). Dad not only survived, but is now thriving. I happened to be visiting them during this adventure; I naturally extended my visit to help be the comic relief and do what I do best; distract and comfort.
Then we had three back to back expos scattered around the region. While we came home in between each one to restock and slightly refuel, we became tired.
Our youngest then had elective surgery approximately one week after the last show. I trekked across The Chesapeake Bay (about a four hour journey) to be with her. If you have children and they have ever been operated on, you know how I felt. STRESSED! She came through it with flying colors and was released later that day. I then gathered our eldest and we headed to visit her; another hour away. We stayed for the weekend, made yummy food, nurtured, visited, and tried to relax. A few days later, my eldest and I drove back to her home for a Farmer's Market run and quick visit with her and her boyfriend.
I then left their home and headed back to my parents, another four hour trek, to retrieve my Yogi Dog, Gabi.
Tired yet? I was.
As I am driving along, Michael pops in to remind me to have him surround the car.
Shades of things to come?
All was going smoothly, little traffic, and familiar terrain. Gertrude, my handy dandy GPS System, then had me turn onto a road I was unfamiliar with. Since it had been a while since I traveled this particular route, I thought I had forgotten it and listened.
Ugh. The road quickly became barely a two lane road with NO berms/shoulder or dividing line. Oh, did I mention it was VERY curvy? By the time I came to the realization that this is NOT where I wanted to be, I figured, how bad could it get and trudged on.
How bad could it be? Silly question.
Did I mention it was curvy? I drove on, knuckles becoming white as my hands gripped the steering wheel.
I called on Big Mike, just to make sure he was around. I was getting scared and knowing that he was around helped to rest my mind… a little. I mean, I knew I was driving well, but those curves were not making me comfortable as I was unsure how others would handle them.
I drove below the speed limit, very unlike me, and see yet another curve up ahead. Before I could slow down more, a BIG truck is now headed directly for me. Okay it wasn’t an eighteen-wheeler, but I couldn’t see the driver, he/she was up that high. I pulled over as far as possible and was now driving partly on the grass. The truck still didn't pull more to their side and kept plowing ahead.
Before I knew it, I am pressing hard on the horn. How my hand got there still befuddles me. It was as if a hand had gently pried my hand from the steering wheel, placed it on the horn and pressed. Hard.
The truck then pulled more to their chosen side, I think slightly slowed down and passed me. I tell you, I think, I could have put my hand out and touched the truck as it passed. Yes it was that close.
I exhaled. Who knew I was holding my breath?! I look in the rearview mirror, the truck emitted no brake lights and simply kept moving forward.
Heart racing, glowing with sweat, I continuing driving white knuckled for the rest of that trek and practically kissed the ground when I arrived at my folks home.
It was beyond a nerve wracking experience and took hours to calm down.
OH! The next day after sharing this story with a friend, she promptly writes back that Big Mike popped into her office immediately after reading my story and says ‘Yep, I was there protecting her.’ He appeared to her as a flash of white light surrounded by electric blue.
Hopefully this story has proven to you that you don’t need or are required to do a specific ceremony to connect with him or any other angel. Seriously, if I had to stop what I was doing (driving safely) and kneel down, face South before he would listen? I’mmmm not so sure I’d be her right now.
Gabriel is no different in his accessibility to you and all things creative. Gabriel works with the sacral chakra the place of creativity, sexual, sensual and miracles. Before you skip this over by not thinking you aren’t creative, STOP! Every day you do something creative whether it be planning a menu, schedule shuffling, art, writing or problem solving. Each and every day we are tapping into this very juicy chakra.
Toot Toot! That is Gabriel tooting his horn with you in mind. True, a horn is often associated with Gabriel as he can also be called 'The Great Communicator’. He brings news of all kinds; the good, the bad, the ugly and the euphoric. He is the angel accredited with giving Mary the news of the impeding birth of her Son. Talk about euphoric, but what a ‘burden’ knowing what your son was to experience in his life. Gabriel’s horn can also offer the ‘all’s good to go’ sign. In fact, while at an expo, a new client came forward only because she heard Gabriel’s horn while standing at our booth and knew she would get great clarity from the angels through me. What a blessing indeed!
Gabriel also assists in awakening the senses. For example, think of one of the most decadent meals you’ve ever had. You felt the food swirl within your mouth; the textures, the spices. The food felt like it was literally exploding and made you salivate for more. THIS is the senses waking up and truly enjoying what life is offering you. The meal became a sensual experience, just as wearing a luxurious piece of clothing, just as smelling an aroma you adore.
Archangel Gabriel's Mandala
How about those doodles you absentmindedly draw when bored? What about how you decorate your home? What about...So the next time someone says you or they are not creative, just smile and shout out, ‘Au contraire!’ and give a wink to Gabriel for showing how creative you really are.
Gabriel assists in birth as well as death. It’s the Cycle/Circle of Life. He is especially helpful if the grieving process has become difficult; you can’t get past the death of a loved one. Whether it is mourning, blaming self for things said or not said, things done or not done. All those ‘what ifs’ that typically run amuck during this powerfully charged time. This can also include a beloved pet. Allow Gabriel to connect with you and remember the joyful moments of that one’s life and the reason that they were in it; no matter how short or long. If there is something that is still yearning to be said to them, Gabriel can and will assist getting your message delivered. Remember he carries a horn - it acts as a great megaphone.
Just like Michael’s name means Who is like God. Gabriel’s name translates to God is My Strength. What a beautiful reminder that you can build your strength with the assistance of Gabriel. Strength to go after your dreams. Strength to give birth to new ways of being. Strength to be different, and be you. Strength to not only shine, but to share your brilliance with the world.
Hopefully you are beginning to better understand how integrated Archangels Michael and Gabriel are in your lives already. Sometimes it is about connected dots and better understanding of who does what

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
Money and the energy we have wrapped up around it. November 02 2017 2 CommentsMoney - this was an interesting channeling that Angel Chamuel offered in the way of allowing and self love.
What can Angel Cards do for you? October 18 2017
As many of you know, I channeled the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck in two weeks a few years back. I've gotten this question lately:
How do I use the deck and how are oracle cards different than tarot cards?
Both kinds of cards; tarot and oracle, are created to help inspire and empower the user. They are forms of divination. Tarot has been in active use since the mid 15th century. Oracle cards are a much newer divination tool and have been in use since the mid 19th century. Both have value and honestly I believe have been around much longer than the history books may show. My thought is that oracle cards came to be after tarot because tarot can truly take a lifetime to master and folks wanted a simpler, more direct way to divine messages from the universe and beyond. I personally don't use tarot because it makes my hair hurt. I always choose to go simple in anything. Don't always succeed, but when possible, simple is the go to option.
Oracle cards are typically more straight forward than tarot, no suits and cards within said suits, etc. However, many oracle decks seem to be designed as a tarot deck wanna be; beautifully and heavily illustrated with different meanings depending if the card was upside down, flew out, etc.
Still complicated for some. Why can't a message be a message? Why does the illustration have to have a meaning too? Why can't the message just BE? Why does it have to have the reverse meaning if presented in a different way? These are the sorts of questions I often found myself asking with no clear answer ... ever. If you are a seasoned reader, I'm sure you can make a logical argument as to the whys, but again this delves into hair hurting territory.
I like simple.
With that in mind, the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck was born. For starters, no illustrations; or the ones that are typically assigned to oracle cards. The only art on this deck is the abstract rose in the top left hand corner; everything does indeed come from LOVE. The other? The angel's sigil; the symbol that has been proven to me via clients and customers to strengthen your connection with that angel. Lastly, the angel's message. As I often say the message now can stand on its own merit and doesn't matter if it flies out, is twirling on its head or upside down; the message is the message.
How to use them? As with many things, there are a variety of ways. Here are some of my favorites:
- Pull one card daily. This helps to focus on a specific energy throughout the day. For example if the Breathe card is pulled, you are invited to remember this throughout your day if stressed, are exercising, or simply need a moment or two to self.
- Do a spread. There are many kinds of spreads out there and each one will also have its own merit. A spread is best done when you have ample time to sit with the cards and focus on each message and how it pertains/relates to you. A spread is very beneficial when there is a situation in your life when one card simply won't suffice. A spread can be as few as three cards up to ? A six card spread is offered in our guidebook.
- You could also pull the cards that all relate to a specific angel. As an example, if you are on a conscious Self Love Journey, pulling all of Chamuel's (Angel of Self Love) cards will help to reinforce how important it is to LOVE self first and foremost.
Hopefully this has simplified these age old questions as you step more confidently on your chosen path to BE. I look forward to reading your comments below and feel free to share the Chatter!
The Harvest Moon - What are you 'harvesting'? October 06 2017
Luna was in her full glory last night, heralding in the energies of the Harvest Moon. This trends back to the 'olden' times when many crops were harvested to add to the bounty that would get them through the harsher times of the winter months.
This still holds true today in a myriad of ways though. Many of us are not farmers and do not pretend to be given in account how abundant food is throughout the year. Although many of us still will 'play farmer' and enjoy canning sauce, vegetables, etc. to add some summer freshness in during those long dark days of winter.
However, let's talk of the spiritual or personal harvest. What kind of seeds have you been planting? This is the no judgment zone remember, but really look at the seeds you have been sowing.
Are they ones of fear?
Are they ones of lack?
Are they ones of insecurity or low self worth?
Are they ones of excitement?
Are they ones of renewal?
Are they ones of vast abundance?
You see where I'm going with this. It is the Law of Attraction at its finest. What you put out there is ricocheted back to you. The difference it is coming back at ya ten fold. MANY are reporting back with feelings of unease, a depth of tiredness not known before (this includes me; I slept close to ten hours that past two nights! I rarely did this, even as a teenager!).
I have some answers, but as you well know, one size does not fit all. This I do know for sure:
We are slipping into the energies of 2018 - afterall we are in the last quarter of 2017. Our senses are heightening. Our sense of urgency is coming in at the speed of light. It IS happening. As you may remember, The Gang pronounced 2018 as The Year of Love. While one may think of gooey, romantic love (and that's true), what about love of self as the primary love?
Remember, loving self first is not selfish, it is imperative. You're going to be hearing this a lot from me via The Gang for many, many months, so get use to it. You MUST love yourself first. Period. You MUST honor your desires and needs. If you need sleep, SLEEP. If you need to eat, EAT (healthily of course). If you need to say no, SAY NO. And so on. Honoring your emotions does not give permission to own the emotions. Think of this way:
I am doing tiredness vs. I am tired.
I am doing hunger vs. I am hungry.
I am doing confusion vs. I am confused.
A simple word switcheroo can make a big difference in how you feel. For those that have been with me a bit know of the should vs. could war. This is the same kind of situation.
You empaths are really feeling this. You desire to go into seclusion. Please don't. Sit with your feelings. This is a HUGE growth spurt for you. Honor what you are feeling. If you don't have a journal, get thee to your closest office supply store and get one. It really doesn't matter what it looks like. What matters is that you are better able to process the energy swirling around you and journaling helps. a. lot.
Another tool is our Crystal Sceptres I cannot recommend them enough. My first was gifted to me and the energy is lovely, empowering and yet soft. I daily immerse mine in my water. I also do this for Gabi and the 'lions' water bowls. Each day a different angel steps forward to offer guidance and through that guidance the sceptre is chosen. I meditate with it; this greatly helps to quiet my mind and offer 'out of the box' solutions to a vast array of situations.
Bottom line is to stay true to yourself. Small sentence, BIG impact. This may take the rest of your life to master and then some, so BE patient.
I look forward to reading your responses and feel free to share the post!
What on Earth is going on? September 13 2017 2 Comments
So many of you have reached out with questions of disbelief, low energy levels, not feeling 100% and more.
I get it.
Let's look to our most recent past.
We had a partial lunar and solar eclipse.
We had our first full solar eclipse in decades here in the States.
Two hurricanes just barreled through the States with unrelenting force, leaving too much devastation in their wake.
Think the energy is churned up? Of course it is! Why wouldn't it affect you? No matter where you live, energy is energy and it travels. This shift has hit everyone, at various levels. I'm no exception. I returned to our home away from the beach fer reals over the past few days. While our home was not in disarray, it needed some TLC and waking up.
Wake it up I did; cleaning each and every room top to bottom. Baseboards, windows, files, etc. all cleaned and purged. As I went from room to room I carried Michael's Sacred Candle with me bringing in the energy of protection while the kaka got swept up and away.
The house now feels great.
However, I was pretty exhausted (not a great way to start show season) and I realize a new not so nice portal had opened in our backyard. Even Gabi was anxious going out the back to play, relax and well whatever dogs do. She confirmed what I thought/knew; something was icky out there. Work was quickly assigned to The Gang and Mystical Creatures to close it off and send the unwanted energies back home (we don't displace around here and leaving someone else to deal with it all - not good karma in my book).
In the midst of this I facilitated a guided meditation with my students last night. It went well; however the reaction wasn't the typical WOW! Many felt a bit afraid afterwards - OH DEAR -
Ironically prior to the meditation we chatted about encountering new things - mystical creatures included - and how at times we push things away even if it is the very thing that is need at that moment in time. Why? Bottom line, it's something new. New can be scary. Especially if it is a powerful new tool often one doesn't feel worthy to have such a tool. I get that as well. I've turned away help many a time because I would think who am I to garner such assistance?
I toss back to you - why don't you deserve all the help you request/desire? Especially now with the energy swirling and twirling all over the place. Why wouldn't you allow outside assistance from The Winged and Haloed Gang or a Crystal (we have super cool sceptres), or a Unicorn or a Centaur or a ....
See where I'm going with this? Life is about asking and receiving. Not just the winning lottery ticket, but also in the day to day of life. From having your home protected as you clean, to your yard so it's safe for all to enjoy, to yes maybe winning the lottery.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one powerful topic... allowing the assistance to come through even if you haven't asked for it. Trust me, they know when you are ready.
The time is now... September 12 2017 2 Comments
The time is now to remember to breathe and breathe deeply.
The time is now to BE grateful for all that is already in your world.
The time is now to cheer on others as they march to their drum.
The time is now for you to fly your Freak Flag.
The time is now for you to BE the Star of your life.
Transparency = BEing August 28 2017 3 Comments
Honestly I'm not sure where this post is going to go... could be a rant, could be an AHA, could be filled with vignettes of stories... it could...
As we have flipped well into the third quarter of 2017 and are now flirting with the last, allow me to remind you that waaay back almost one year ago The Gang dubbed 2017 as The Year of Transparency.
Much has happened energetically in the past two months; Mary Magdalene's Feast Day getting more notice with a channeled post from me, two lunar eclipses compounded with a new and full moon, mercury dancing in retrograde (which seems to be wreaking havoc across the board regarding communication) and let us not forget the biggest event, the total solar eclipse.
Things got fluffed up.
To dance more in the Land of Woo, Doreen Virtue's video announcement that she is walking away from much of what she taught for decades has many tongues a waggin'. This is not a Doreen Bashing Event (there's plenty of that going around), but perhaps better understand that this is The Act of Transparency in action. She is on her human path. She resonates with what she now believes to be real. Is she correct? Who knows, but for her, it makes sense and that is important for her journey. Transparency. If you aren't sure to what event I'm talking about, I can't share the source for her video; it has been removed from YouTube. Bottom line, she's rebranding her beliefs and has openly walked away from much of what she used to teach.
She's human and allowed this change... we are ALL about evolving and walking our truest path. It's how we address and share it that differs from person to person. How we tend to those that follow us (no matter how big or small the following) and how we are currently supporting them.
Take me as an example, as many of you know, The Course launched fully this year. The lessons are targeted to work up the chakra system; Sandalphon, Uriel, Gabriel, etc. This helps students to be more grounded as they delve into higher resonating energies. So Uriel is in italics for apparently he decided to go AAWOL (Absent Angel Without Leave) for several weeks. Some students were two or three lessons past him when he finally decided to emerge. Oh dear... I called it what it was... a mistake on my end (have to own it for I'm the one reading homework and sending out next) .. I couldn't even blame Mercury - for this has been going on for weeks!
Shake head while hanging head moment ensued ...
I strive to be a leader. I strive to be Mary Poppins (yeah yeah yeah I know even she isn't perfect, but please don't pop my bubble). Eh, life happens. But how FUNNY that Uriel, The Angel of Safety is the one who decided to hide....
You Are Safe To BE You
What better message in relation to transparency? BE you. All may not 'get you' but it's not your job to appeal or even be understood by all. It's your job to BE. Remember, there are always many sides to every story. It is up to you to take with you what jives. Perhaps argue with what doesn't, but perhaps prior to arguing, ask why is this pushing my buttons? Within the answers to that question will lie your truth.
Nobody ever said BEing transparent was going to be an easy feat. If that were the case, there would be no broken hearts, no wars, no fear of war, etc. for all would be be speaking their truth. When truth is spoken, it does not come from ego (the birthplace of fear), but from love.
For what is love?
It is the truth.
When you get energy 'Love Bites' August 01 2017 6 Comments
This post has been truly a few months in the making... Do I or don't I share this 'unusual' phenomena?
Energy, as you well know, is just that; energy. Energy activates electricity turning on and off our lights. Energy charges our computers, crystals and of course there is energy healing.
Another kind of energy, and one I don't actively play in often (or consciously at least) is the kaka. I freely admit the lower energies exist. I've seen them. I've witnessed their existence in others. I let others do what they do best and I stick to what I do best.
This my story and I'm sticking to it:
This past spring kaka was surrounding us. I could literally feel it and it was affecting all I touched; clients, home and heart and business. I'm of the mindset, go after me, not my 'babies' and if you are reading this, you fall in the 'baby' arena. I'm a Momma Bear to many. Therefore I decided to fight back and do battle.
I poked the bear so to speak.
So this 'thing' decided to mess with me physically. As you will see in the photo... I had a 'hicky' from them... hence me making light of it all and calling them Love Bites. It was soooo not loving. While not monumental in the scheme of things, this was highly out of the ordinary for me. It showed up during my sleep and as I wash my face nightly, I can attest it was not there prior to bedtime.
Bizarre and I must admit a tad scary.
Why do I bothering sharing this now after three months? It's happening to others. A dear friend has gotten bitten on her legs. Funny thing about her it too only happens at night. The big difference is that she delves into this energy regularly to clear for others. She is use to this, protects herself diligently and yet... got bit.
This is a warning for you all. Do not go delving into energies you are not familiar with or are unsure of. IF you get a warning from Big Mike, heed the warning and back off immediately. Ask that he and the rest of The Gang and others in your posse (from unicorns, dragons, fae, ascended masters, etc) tackle it. You may direct them to a specific spot/location, but please protect yourself and be careful.
Why are they doing this now I hear you ask. Because as a whole, more are waking up. More are walking in true light. More are walking and talking through the energy of LOVE. THIS annoys those buggers. They love it when we are 'fat, dumb and clueless'.
You've heard me say it before and I'm saying it again. It is time for you to BE. BE yourself. BE LOVE. BE. Stand tall and proud in your light. The energy of united is undefeatable. United we stand in Love. United we win.
As always, feel free to comment below and share away! This helps others to find us more easily.
The Door has opened, will you step through? July 18 2017
Yesterday was 7 - 7 - 2017.
A door opened as an opportunity for all to step through and reclaim their birthright; their true divinity. This is not the divinity that society has forced upon you (you know, all those lovely shouls), but the divinity of what gets your soul juiced up. What offers those exciting flutters of recognition and knowing when you think about it? What soothes and yet excites your soul?
Yeah, THAT Gateway.
It all started waaay back with the last Full Moon, The THUNDER Moon and boy did that moon come in with a BIG Bang! Many clients were crawling over themselves scrambling to get answers of why they were now being put up against something that seemed insurmountable. Of course it wasn't surmountable at all; it was all a pre-conceived notion of what is or is not surmountable.
You have the power and the knowledge to get through all you desire to get through. However it takes great patience. Something humans are not well known in practicing.
As you know from a previous post, Big Thunder brought in the potential of upheaval and it certainly did for many. The energy 'settled' temporarily and yesterday was the Day of Seven. In fact, when you add up the days; 7 + 1+ 7 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 = 25 which breaks down to 7. However when you separate the numbers and focus on them as the individual number; 2, 1, 7 and 0, it takes on an entirely new agenda with the '7' taking center stage as it shows itself three times.
(1) ~Time to embrace the Oneness of ALL. A great book that has been out for years that embodies this philosophy is Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard. HIGHLY recommend, but it is not meant for a speed reading. It is meant to savor and ponder.
The '0' represents completion; you are ready to move forward with greater love and clarity of all, including self.
'2' takes on the energy of faith and patience. This of course is frustrating especially if you have seen snippets of the finished line and are in a hurry to get there. I GET that. I've seen where Angel Chatter is going for years; you think by now I'd be there. OH, but looking back I was so NOT ready then. More of me certainly is now and therefore more opportunities are coming knocking at my door.
The '7' is a fun number for it screams - think of starting a spiritual based practice! Helllooo... are you listening? Whether you decide to start or follow through on a business idea that is spiritually related, or not, it IS time to step more visibly into your spiritual side. NO more hiding allowed. This is exactly why the tuition for the first year launch of The Authorization Course was $777.
How to get through it all easier? Stay in your center. It's the ego that creates the drama and that drama can certainly create unease, feelings of unworthiness and more kaka than one can shake a stick at. It's very easy to 'slip' into that kind of crap because it can be quite overwhelming. I get it! But you are better than that stupid ol' ego.
Centered? Are you kidding me? (yes I can hear the grumbling from here). Yes, your center. Your heart. Find a new activity that brings you joy. New? Yes, simply because it will force you to focus and get you out of your way by trying something new. More training of a healing modality, knitting, dancing, cooking, woodworking, chess. The list is endless, but find something new for you to do helps you out of the rut, brings in more joy and that of course is the ultimate goal.
Hope this helps, really I do.

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

Labels, oh how we succumb March 01 2017
Have you ever noticed that when you meet a new person, potential friend, that we will start off asking what they DO?
We immediate label them; entrepreneur, stay at home parent, garbage collector, plumber, angel goddess, etc.
That label stays and if we don't like what we hear either through fear or judgment (also fear) we look for an escape route. 'They are not our peeps!'
How often have you called some other driver an idiot (or worse)? True, they may not be driving consciously, but perhaps they just got bad news and are rushing to a loved ones side. Perhaps a relative is going into labor. Perhaps...
We've all done it, don't lie. We've all experienced it. I remember a neighborhood gathering a few years back that included a buffet dinner and a chance for the entire neighborhood to gather - they ALL came! As a couple sat down next to me on the couch, they asked the most popular question, 'What do you do?'
Another friend started chuckling and said, 'I LOVE to watch folks faces when you tell them.' I rolled my eyes and shared; very briefly.
They looked at each other and could not leave the couch fast enough.
It's gotten to the extreme lately; social media is a 'safe place' to body shame or shame another that is not of your ilk. THAT'S shameful... Not bothering to know of another's history, what gets THEM juiced up, how do they BE (vs. DOing) before throwing those judgment rocks.
Here's a new challenge for you:
Initially, just notice how often you label folks; fat, slovenly, gorgeous, nerdy, etc. I just finished reading a auto-biography of sorts written by Marilyn Monroe. My Story. It takes this blog post (which ironically I've been playing with for over one month) and succinctly shares how she was labeled from her perspective and not really given the chance to BE. Once you notice how often society labels and then bring it down on how often you label, you just may be in for an awakening.
No judgment - REALLY! It is what it is. However, now BEing a bit more enlightened, how can you switch it up? May I suggest you chat with Zadkiel. He will help to clear the kaka of labels so you may see the truth.
