As the Leaves Fall November 02 2018
Gabi and I were out for one of our daily walks this week. This was so needed for us both and walk we did; over five miles by the time we returned home.
Why was this walk needed more than others? We haven't been able to do so due to weather. This has been an extremely wet spring, summer and fall for us here and when it finally dried out, the skeeters were only too happy to make us part of their buffet...no thank you. Bottom line, we haven't had a proper get lost in the woods walk in many, many weeks.
This week was it! The weather was sublime especially for this time of year; warm with little or no humidity. We took full advantage of it and grabbed a big chunk of time to escape, find our equilibrium, gain clarity, not to mention exercise. It is a beautiful time for I've no cell service. It's just her and I meandering, taking photos, looking at the wildlife and simply BEing. We are blessed to live in an area where there is access to miles and miles of trails mere moments from our back door and it is a gift that is greatly appreciated daily in our home.
As part of my walking ritual, I pose a question to The Gang (angels) prior to leaving our home. As this particular day there was nothing pressing in my mind I simply asked for clarity and a message to share with y'all.
The world over seems to rejoice in the beauty that fall can bring; nature offers fireworks in glorious colors for weeks on end. As you will see, we are just starting to turn the colors here, nothing truly noteworthy as far as the colors go, but there were messages!
As we sat to meditate (yes Gabi meditates and stands guard while I do) by the river, I noticed the leaves gently falling.
Falling every single time right side up. Leaves have a right side up? In this scenario, yes. The leaf is gently curled on one side; hence right side up.
As each leaf gently landed on the water, it was always right side up.
What gives I asked... this is the message, I know... so share.
The Angels Message
The Pondering of Falling Leaves
As Gabi and I continued to sit there, I pondered this message from the Angels and asked them how does this apply to all?
The more I pondered, the more clear it became that it does indeed apply to all; Good Girls included. Who hasn't wanted to break the mold or the perceived chains that bind them at some point in their life? I know I have. It can get frustrating when you know there is more, but can't seem to have that breakthrough for clarity or recognition or...
The more I pondered, I realized this message was and is profound for those that chose to heed its advice.
Sometimes, for who really cares to admit that it is a must, one must have a hiccup per se in order to move forward with greater clarity of who they are, what they are here to do and why and with whom.
Shedding the old paradigms that can certainly constrain you is paramount for personal as well as spiritual growth.
This is what I have done personally and let's face it, some of those hiccups were far from a hiccup; I fought it tooth and nail, but of course my soul prevailed of what was needed and I carried on.
I carried on to help others do the same with hopefully less trauma; but as I have learned, another's trauma is another's hiccup. We go through what is needed for us to go through in order to BE a better reflection of who we are destined to BE.
Join MeJoin me in saying YES to you. Let's work together, come for a private weekend and more. Say YES to you... you cup runneth over and The Gang does indeed support you and is waiting to show you more.
What Archangel Raphael has to say... September 28 2018 3 Comments
So many of you have written me privately and have also shared publicly how the current state of the world is affecting you emotionally, physically, mentally and of course spiritually.
So I chatted with Archangel Raphael, the Angel of Healing, to find out what one can do and how it may be affecting you on these various levels.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Physically
In a nutshell; lethargy. Energy is beyond low, for you. Your brain says DO SOMETHING and your body is... meh.
Cravings for the comfort foods is higher than it has been. Eating the higher in carb loaded foods contributes greatly to the lethargy. Raphael is looking at me now and shaking his head in frustration. He has something to say on this:
Listen to what your body needs
What you think you need
What you think you need offers a bandaid of blanketing over your emotional rawness. Eat less, yes I said eat less. Your body is vibrating at a higher level as you approach the next dimension. By eating less, you are actually fueling your entire BEing more properly for this allows you to use your internal resources to kick into higher gear and support you better.
You must move your body. As easy as it may be to sit and DO nothing, this does not serve you or your body. Even if you only go for a quick walk. This does more for you than you may realize. Lethargy breeds lethargy. Move!
Love your body for what it does for you.
Love your body for how it has supported you.
Those acne marks, stretch marks, wrinkles and more contribute to your innate beauty. How about loving YOU for you and not pining away for something that was or may never be?
In other words, no more laying in bed or wishing you could lay in bed with the covers pulled over your head until this blows over. It may not blow over for a while and by doing so, you slow or completely stall your own soul's advancement.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Mentally
Talk about BEing confused, snarky and completely on edge!
This energy has hit you mentally as well. As an example, a massive earthquake (7.5) hit Indonesia on 9/27/18. Now you may not live anywhere near Indonesia, but as you are empathic, you felt Gaia's tremblings long before she erupted. These tremblings have contributed your mental facilities being on hyper overdrive and not understanding the source.
Once again, I asked Raphael...
These energy surges as you call them are more than surges. It is part of the Ascension Process and because so many are still living in fear they immediately kick back and scream "Keep it the same!" and then moan and groan quickly about their life not being any better.
This becomes a vicious cycle of pining for different but doing nothing in order to facilitate the change. In fact often times one goes out of their way to keep the status quo.
How can this help you mentally?
One must be more proactive in their own soul development.
One must actively meditate daily.
This signifies to us that one is ready to expand and take on life in a more joyous and loving manner.
By meditating, one can clear their mental faculties more quickly and permanently while becoming more inspired within their personal life. Does it change the outward happenings in the world? Initially no. However, it does start within and your 100 Monkey Syndrome quickly morphs into more humans BEing which then of course shifts the consciousness into higher vibrating energies.
How to meditate if you don't already? Check out YouTube. There are hundreds, nay thousands of guided meditations out there. One of these days, I'll upload a few myself... If you don't like one, go onto to another.
You may also find meditation classes in your area via a yoga studio, etc. Often times when first starting, it is helpful to have someone gently and lovingly guide you through until you are more confident in this practice.
Remember to call upon Big Mike for those protective energies first! No need to invite the lower energies in.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Emotionally
The shifts are certainly hitting the emotional button as well. I've been getting teary at the drop of a hat lately. So much so my husband will ask, Where's a hat so you may now cry? While it may not sound very loving in his response, it gets me to laugh. One may logically go to the place that our daughter is getting married next month and well, if you've a child to get married, you know how emotionally charged the event is!
So yes, it could be those wedding bells, but it is much more than that. Raphael, what say you?
Your emotional well BEing is certainly being tested at the moment. You know the difference between right and wrong, but so many things 'get in your way' that seem to prevent you.
Heed the two suggestions above; proper food and meditation.
Those combined will offer great support to you mentally and immediately begin to shift your emotional outlook not only in your personal world, but beyond.
One of the key acts you may do is Acts of Self Love.
These are the Acts frequently recommended to help you not only relax, but refuel and recharge your entire BEing. Emotional included.
It is any Act you perform for yourself that once complete helps you feel more centered and clear minded. It may include a massage, yoga class, walk in nature, reading a book that broadens your horizons (in other words, not junky 'fun' books), but ones that offer a more profound meaning of the universe.
Get your mind engaged in more joy-filled activities only helps to uplift you emotionally. What activity uplifts you?
Well it looks like I'll be making a massage appointment later today and committing to yoga classes next week. Time to get back in the swing of things of putting me in the To Do list as well.
How the Energy Shifts are Affecting you Spiritually
How can you trust anything out there at the moment? In many ways it seems the world is going to Hell in the proverbial Hand Basket so how can one trust why this is a good thing?
Oh Archangel Raphael, Angel of Healing?
Once again it is part of the Ascension Process.
Yes, I know many of you have been hearing of this process for decades and you think the masses ought to be there by now.
Not true, obviously. If you had all collectively accomplished this, we would not be now having this conversation.
Many of you have lovingly stepped forward to assist others in the process through coaching, readings, healings (via akashic records, energy, crystals, etc.) You are a leader and as such must heed these warnings in order to assist others.
However, you may take solace in the knowledge that it is happening. How can you be certain? For the lower energies are fervently working now, more than ever, to keep you stuck and living in a state of fear.
Now is the time for you to call upon us more often.
Now is the time for you to call upon the Ascended Masters.
Now is the time for you to use all the tools you have at hand and those offered to you to stop the madness.
You are a warrior. Warriors can get weary which is why I am addressing the spiritual aspect last. I have offered you tools above. Here is the last one:
Place your hands over your heart.
Listen to your heartbeat.
This is your soul speaking.
Quietly listen. What else does it have to share? All messages received from the soul are the truth. Fear has no place in truth.
Listen with Love.
Now apparently is the time to shed the bed linens, go for a walk and mediate with your soul. Who will join me? I shall also be lighting his candle today and wearing my Ariel Angel Glow medallion for courageous healing.
Like what you've read? Please share across the world. I do believe all could benefit from this message.
The Harvest Full Moon, 2018 - What YOU can do to reap its rewards September 24 2018
In case you haven't noticed, I'm a more 'flying by the seat of my wings' kinda goddess. Therefore, it ought to come as no big surprise that your heads up preview for our full moon comes on the day of this Big Beautiful Harvest Moon...
It's just kinda how I roll...
What IS the Harvest Moon?
The Harvest Moon is always delegated as such based on its proximity to the Fall Equinox; two weeks prior or two weeks after the equinox. No matter when the moon is full in the four week timeframe, it is designated The Harvest Moon.
All moons; whether it be a full moon, new moon, waxing or waning, hold specific energy. All of them.
The Energy of the Harvest Moon
Because all full moons hold energy, it is best to understand the power of this particular full moon; The Harvest Moon. Yes it is most certainly about harvesting, but there is much more to it than that....
The moon is in the energy of Aries. Aries? isn't Aries back in March and April? Yes of course it is, but the moon is in Aries energy. This is because when a moon is full, it is the opposite of the sun; and therefor the sun sign. If it is opposite of the sun, then that means the Harvest Moon is in Aries - opposite.
This moon, and I'm sure you are already nodding your head in agreement, holds tremendous upheaval and power. Think back in very recent times in your personal life; what has not gone according to plan? What may have imploded on you? (It really didn't implode by the way, but signified a more dramatic letting go process due to, ahem, holding onto something tendencies). This upheaval time is allowing you to plant proper seeds that are in better alignment with you.
The Moon is in Aries, but where is the sun?
The sun's energy is in Libra which is the consummate balancer. IF you combine the fiery Aries and balancing Libra energies; is it any wonder that there is an upheaval energy that is begging for balance?
Of course there is. You are itching for change, but yet crave balance. What to do? Compromise. Compromise doesn't mean giving in or giving up. It offers a chance to re-evaluate those desires and through that; you better understand what it really is that is desired. Through that you create balance within you and that of course extends outwardly into your life.
Simply put; what do you desire that will create better balance in your world? What needs to be let go in order to do so? How can you do something/anything differently?
How does the Harvest Moon Affect You Personally?
To thine own self BE true.
This fiery, balancing, emotional upheaval is not the ideal time to pick a fight; any fight no matter how valid your cause may be. It is a chance to reflect and notice what has triggered this inner turmoil that may have you wishing you were a world class samurai soldier wielding multiple swords at once. Before you come out wielding those swords,
Hold on. Catch your breath and thoughts.
Instead of battling it outwardly. Take advantage of this power and focus on the whys. We often go to the whys and whats that can offer great clarity ...
- Why do I wish to do this or that?
- What is my motivation to do this or that?
BE honest with yourself with each why and what. Brutally honest. IF it is fame and fortune, don't BE bashful! IF it for prosperity beyond your wildest dreams, go for it! IF it is to live a life of solitude in a remote cabin, why not? IF it is....
Aries and your beautiful head
Aries rules your physical head. Combine that with the balancing act of Libra, many of you will wish to change your hair color, style, new jewelry (think earrings, necklace, etc. - see all head related stuff). That's the fun part of Aries, but as in most things energy, it can go deeper.
Your ego and brain are obvious also in your head space. What has been weighing you down; do you harbor feelings of being abandoned, not recognized, nobody loves me guess I'll go eat worms scenarios, etc. Now is the perfect time to purge! Write down all those feelings of injustice (whether real or imagined, remember if you think it real, it has become so to varying levels in your psyche).
Write. Everything. Down.
Now burn it. Oh the cathartic energy that is consume in this simple and powerful ritual. If your inner circle tribe is close by, this is even more powerful when done as a group. Each person offers support in the releasing process. No need to read your list aloud, but IF you do, your heart begins to hear it quicker and the healing through love may BEgin that much faster. Remember, no judgment is allowed on your feelings. You have felt them. Honor them and know now it is time to change your story.
What Angel to Chat with during this Harvest Moon?
In a nutshell? All of them! Really. However, I know that is not the answer you desire. The Gang member that showed up first?
Ariel, alias Pinky (my guardian angel for those of you who don't know the story, may find more about her in my latest book in the guardian angel section). Ariel is The Angel of Courage and offers this message:
Azrael, The Angel of Transition, was close behind. Now Azrael is often labeled as the Angel of Death, which is rather doom and gloom and melodramatic in my book, so I had a chat with him. His response?
What is Death but transition? Do you not transition from one thing to another on a regular basis?
Do you not clear the clutter to bring in more of what is desired?
Do you not attempt to let go of old paradigms in order to shine brighter?
Do you not let go in order to embrace new?
Is it not time to let go and BE?
Who am I to argue with either of these two? I suggest you don't attempt to either.
I know I've got the Azrael Candle lit today and it smells heavenly.
It is now time to embrace this fiery and balancing moon that we call Harvest.
Is 'it' over yet? August 16 2018
This Mercury in Retrograde combined with the other energies; Lion's Gate, the Perseids and more have kicked some serious butt for so many of you. If I'm honest, and don't know how to lie well (well except during the holidays when I BEcome Mrs. Claus, but that is indeed a digression) it's kicked my butt too.
What is this Energy doing to us?
This combined energy, in a nutshell, has ripped off a few layers that needed sloughing. Just as much as a good loofa will do for your skin, this energy combo did for you.
Think about it, if you hit a struggling moment recently, you have now walked through or at the very least are processing on how to get through it. You were given resources whether it be a book a person or group that helped you to embrace the solutions. Helped you to recognize the solutions for what they are. Reminded you that you are not alone and there are indeed many in your life that adore you for who you are and it is time that more knew of you.
This energy combination brought it up.
Simply because it was time to stop owning this energy, this illusion of illness, lack, non-recognition, non-support, etc.
It IS time to stand taller and BE more proud of who you are and what you are here to do and more importantly here to BE.
Before you take off running and BE, remember, Mercury is still retrograding. Please do not sign any legal documents if possible. At best, post date them if you are positive about this new adventure.
Take the remaining two days, Mercury does go direct on August 18, and reflect. Reflect on your next most probably steps. There is typically a bit of residual goofiness floating around, so best wait to do anything new until Monday when all BEcomes clear again. As an example we head for Chicago in a bit, a 14 hour drive door to door. I have a pad of paper set to go so we may begin to finalize a host of projects from bridal shower for our daughter, videos, 2019 retreats, and more.
However, today started the shift in the clearing arena. I awoke to over a dozen messages on Facebook (a rare thing in my world), many of which noted the shift or at the very least chatted about something that reflected this shift into brighter times. It appears this clearing is not BEing very secretive - for which I am extremely grateful.
Such as learning the lesson and BEing better able to stand more comfortably in their power whether it be through boundaries, a new paradigm shift that was brought to their attention, a reminder, etc.
As The Gang is drumming in, the Shift is here. How will you move forward? What things really don't need your attention any more? Make a list of things you love to do for they help you to BE. You well know I LOVE inspiring and helping others. It is now time to work smarter, not harder regarding Angel Chatter. What this means long term is less shows and more group events. What this means is perhaps increasing our Private Weekend offerings. What this means is a new oracle deck. What this means is saying YES and moving forward, one step at a time.
How will you say YES to you and your dreams, inspirations and aspirations?
On the day that Aretha Franklin skips to the other side, she reminds us how do we prayer for ourselves? Are you not worthy of a prayer? Are you not worthy to share your gifts, no matter how small or large you perceive them?
I think so as does The Gang.
Start with the essence of gratitude and love towards self. That is really the best gift to give to self.
You may have been reading or hearing a lot the Lion's Gate. I'm here to help make some sense of this rather large energy surge that is now literally upon us and how it may affect you.
What is this thing called the Lion's Gate?
The Lion's Gate happens every year on August 8. August BEing the eighth month and the Lion's Gate happens on the eighth day of the eighth month. Every year. So what makes this year any more important or special than past ones? Read on.
Since the Lion's Gate always happens on 8/8, there must be something to the number '8'...right? Right. Think about the number '8'. The number is balanced. The top and bottom is the same. Balance.
Look Skyward and BEyond on the Lion's Gate
On August 8, the stars indeed align. Sirius appears to BE the closest it has been in 364 days and is targeted to BE the brightest star that specific night. Hopefully you will have a chance to witness its beauty.
What you will not physically witness is that at this moment in time, Sirius is in true alignment with the Pyramid of Giza. The Giza Pyramid is considered to be the largest pyramid in the world and a site of a great healing vortex. Why is that?
A pyramid is known to create harmony; it allows the wave patterns to BE in sync and continuous. Everything within that space is naturally brought to a state of homeostatis. A sense of BEing is true and the healing that can take place within a pyramid is known to be fast, furious and permanent on all levels.
Since a pyramid is already in a state of balance, when it is activated by Sirius, magic happens. The Balance of pyramid is magnified literally by the heavens.
Even the River Nile marks this event by rising, indicating vast abundance and prosperity for all. The River Nile is the largest and longest river in the world and runs alongside the Great Pyramids of Giza. The Nile is thought to represent our subconscious.
So think of it this way, your subconscious is now BEing magnified. What you have been hiding, perhaps even from yourself is now BEing illuminated.
It is time to step out!
How does the Lion's Gate affect you personally?
As with all celestial events, it depends on you. How much are you willing to step aside and get out of your own way and step into your own divinity?
Certainly with a powerhouse event of this nature, is it any wonder that your own energy levels will be hit not to mention your personal power center; your solar plexus chakra?
You may be pushed beyond your limits as it were. Are those limits humanly conceived or are they truly your limits? Sit with that question; are you BEing pushed to step out more and BE more aware of your boundaries?
Remember, it is about balance. Hold onto the EIGHT significance... balance, balance, balance.
In other words, living from the HEART aka LOVE.
How to Plan for the Lion's Gate
Sit with your journal and pen in hand.
What are your dreams.
What do you wish your future to hold?
In other words, how do you wish to BE?
Allow plenty of time for this exercise. This is not an exercise to gloss over and do in a rush or piecemealed. It is meant to BE savored. You are meant to linger during this exercise. Dwell on your desires, feel them expand and blossom. Are you not worth savoring? Are your dreams not worth focusing on and dwelling in for a longer period of time vs. over a quick cup of tea?
What to Expect After the Lion's Gate
Once again, life will certainly continue and for some, it will continue without a hiccup. For others, expect things to go a bit more topsy turvy in the short term. Don't allow yourself to hold onto things that really aren't serving you. Don't be afraid to say NO! Don't BE afraid to shout YES!
Say YES to you, your life, your dreams...YOU.
Channeled Message Regarding the Lion's Gate
It is time
Time for you to BE
It is time for you to embrace the light known as you
It is time to shine that light so others may find theirs
It is not a time to be stingy, but it is a time to BE clearer on your boundaries and expectations. It is time to share; share your resources, share your love, share your gifts.
Step within and ask how you are meant to BE
How you are meant to LIVE
How you are meant to LOVE
It is time, greatness is upon you and your dreams
All you must do is say YES
YES to you.
What is in Store for July's Blood Moon? July 25 2018
July 27, 2018 - The Longest Lunar Eclipse This Century
This coming Friday, July 27, 2018 marks yet another memorable event...in the skies.
Not only is it a lunar eclipse, but is targeted to BE the longest lunar eclipse this century. This also coincides with the Full Blood Moon AND it happens the day after Mercury does its backward dance; it goes retrograde.
It's not what it seems this Mercury in Retrograde Dance
Before you head to your bed and are tempted to pull the covers up over your head in fear of the sky falling, read on:
Mercury is not the only planet retrograde at the moment. Oh NO! In fact other planets are retrograding and most are considered masculine in their energy and traits:
Mercury is like the tofu of the solar system; it emits the traits of the other planets that are in retrograde at that time. This meaning that the energy we are now entering is going backward in masculinity. Think about that...the masculine is going backwards in energy.
As a side note, the only feminine planet in retrograde at the moment is Neptune. Her traits include inspiration, magical ways that BEcome enchanting and the subsconscious. Her energy is sweet, sublime and cannot tolerate coarseness. Isn't that a beautiful analogy of what we at large are experiencing in the world right now?
Coarseness. No wonder she went into hiding!
If you are curious, she goes direct on November 24, 2018.
Assimilate the Energies of This Mercury in Retrograde
Sit back a moment, think about it. If many of the masculine planets are in retrograde and the softest energy feminine planet is also in hiding, how does this reflect and affect you now?
I pondered this greatly last night and this morning and asked not only The Gang, aka the Angels, but Mary Magdalene, who apparently is one of my newest besties.
Here is what they had to say:
As we return to purity
As we return to LOVE
The masculine must take a proverbial backset in order for the feminine,
The Divine Feminine to come forward and BE
Balanced with the Masculine
(this is not a battle of who is stronger)
but a union for both to shine
It is a time of reflection
It is a time to soften
It is a time to go within and BE strong
in your Softness
in your Love
in your Joy
It is a time to honor both, but first the masculine must soften its grip and the feminine must feel her own divinity and know she is worthy to meet the masculine. The masculine must loosen his grip on control and allow the feminine to BE his partner.
It is time.
It is this Blood Moon that Sangreal comes to mind, doesn't it?
The Royal Blood or as many call it the Holy Grail.
Without getting into specifics, many hold the energy of Sangreal within themselves. For they are the Divine and are exude the purity that is needed at this time.
You Have Time
Mercury and all the planets listed above are in retrograde until August 19, 2018, this being when Mercury goes direct. Take advantage of this moment, this profound moment in our history is the time to embrace your feminine side; your intuition. Create your own magic. Dream and take no prisoners for this is your dream, your reality, and your life. As John Lennon sang, Imagine all the people living in a world of peace.
If turmoil settles in, step back. Reflect. Ponder. Chat with your soul by placing your hands over your heart and asking what is the next best thing for you to BE at this moment.
The last thing you need to do is join the fray of turmoil and fear. That defeats everything you desire. That will keep you on that blasted gerbil wheel for the remainder of your life. Take the leap off that wheel and honor you and your needs and most importantly your dreams.
I know I am.
Will you join me?
On The Feast Day of Mary Magdalene July 22 2018
Today is July 22 and amongst many beautiful events that have taken place over the centuries, it is also the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene.
As you know, I've had a kinship with her of sorts for years and this has only been heightened since my trip to France. Why would I then be surprised that she woke me up last night with multiple messages?
Honestly, I'm not.
I'm at my parent's home. Dad decided to have an argument with a water hose.
Water Hose -1
Dad - 0 However his consolation prize is a broken ankle. His surgery is on Tuesday and he will then become bionic; plates and screws are to be added to his human body. Due to a bevy of folks coming in, I'm snuggled in at my honorary aunt's house next door for sleep. It's rather lovely since I have the house to myself; This offers time to detox and more. This part of the story isn't a digression, really, but rather a setting of the stage of what's following:
Phase Two - Magdalene Enters
Many of you may also know that I've a few more oracle decks in me...I've known of a second almost since the first one birthed. I've played with the artwork (it helps inspire me). I've learned I operate in a creative way and often times will start/stop a project until it hits.
It has hit. It's only taken six+ years, but hit she has and with a bit of Magdalene magic, it will be debuting before year's end or shortly thereafter.
Shortly before my departure to France she and I created her magical scent. It is magical. Many reported the powerful loving energy that exuded from it and one went so far to say she was transported to Jerusalem and walking her path while there. So stay tuned; her candle and other essential oil blend offerings will be out within weeks.
Phase Three - Magdalene's Message
Phase Four - Integrating Magdalene's Message
How will I now go about my day and days ahead? Hopefully more inspired and Love focused. I AM creating a large offering of home-made TV dinners for my folks that will make meal preparation much easier as dad recuperates. Each meal, especially going forward, WILL be made with more love and more ease. It's not a race to fill the freezer, but to infuse each and everything made with great LOVE which of course is healing.
Will I work on her deck today? Most likely not as the family is stirring and it is time to close and enjoy the day...with them. Remember, it is not the amount of things you accomplish in one day, it is how you BE.
The Day I met Mary Magadelene July 09 2018
I've had this 'weird' fascination with Mary Magdalene for decades. I have felt connected to her in ways that were unexplainable to most and me at times. I felt saddened and betrayed when I would witnessed her as she had been portrayed for centuries as the harlot and outcast.
Over the years I read. I read a lot, perhaps not as many scholars, but more than the average person. I finally stumbled upon Kathleen McGowan's books starting with The Expected One. These books open me in profound ways that resonated deeply within me. highly recommend.
I became insatiable regarding Mary Magdalene, but it's rather difficult to find books that ring true and portray her as a very strong women, healer and passionate teacher. I searched, found few and kept going.
Fast Forward, ahem, a few years...
I returned from France about one week ago. The trip was indeed a tour of southern, sacred France and followed, in part, the footsteps of Mary Magdalene after her arrival in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. The translation of the town is literally to mean:
Saint Marys of the Sea
This beautiful seaside town hosts the infamous bulls and horses; not to mention is recognized as the landing site by millions where Mary Magdalene and her entourage landed after the crucifixion.
It is said that Mary Magdalene, Marie-Salome, Marie-Jacobe, Lazarus amongst other disciples arrived via boat. The iconography is profuse in this town that show 'The Marys' arrival.
Our hotel was literally across the street from the beach where they landed and both mornings I rose early to sit on the rocks along the shore to listen. I did post a variety of pictures and videos along the way in the Facebook group, and many felt the energy there without me providing any suggestions of what they ought to experience.
Mary began speaking softly those mornings. Time slipped into many minutes as I allowed myself to BE and absorb whatever it was that was to be shared. During those two days, it was not much that was noteworthy, with the exception of course that it was indeed Mary Magdalene and we were just getting started.
Mary Magdalene Speaks Louder
We next ventured to St. Baume. St. Baume is the home of St. Maximin and St. Mary Magdalene's Bascilica. Did you know that when a building is 'So and So's Basilica' it is stating that there is a relic of that saint within that building? Well now you do.
It was within the crypt that Mary Magdalene broke me open. It is in this basilica that her skull is encased in a beautiful reliquary behind an ornate iron, gated barrier.
Now let me preface this by saying, I'm an empath and therefore sensitive to energies surrounding me. However, I am very aware of this and find myself crying infrequently and only on occasions of pure love (as opposed to conditional love) and extreme sadness. Soooo... having the set the stage, hopefully, that I really don't cry at the drop of the hat....
I cried and cried profusely every. single. time. I went into the crypt.
We discovered (no we really didn't discover, but were there when shared) that there are two crosses etched into the floor of the crypt. The crosses are Cathar crosses; meaning each 'leg' of the cross is equal length. Balance.
These two specific crosses are the locations where ley lines merge that connect with the Root and Solar Plexus Chakras. One may lay on the floor (I did multiple times) or stand on one cross at a time. It was during these practices that healing began to take place for all involved. One would lay on the floor while four; it always worked out to four others, would hold space.
Healing and Mary Magdalene
As each goddess took their spot on the center, I was told how to send the energy to not only the one on the floor, but to the group at large. She went onto use me as a conduit to help with a healing session with my new BFF - my roommate. I honestly have no idea what transpired, but she who 'doesn't feel energy' was blown away afterwards.
That makes two of us.
As we boarded the bus later, I had a quiet moment or two and Mary began to offer information for a healing protocol. It is still unfolding, but for those that I've shared it with have come back with the comment of... WOW!
What I have gleaned in a very short amount of time is that Mary Magdalene is not only loving, but powerful beyond your wildest expectations. Once you say yes, she is there with you to support, cajole and push.
If anything, she is constant in her energy. She is very polite... yes I said polite. She often asks me...
Will you say YES?
Once agreed upon, it is non-stop and I for one am extremely glad I've said YES once more and look forward to witness what is created next through her.
The Final Cry...for now
Our next destination for an afternoon was Minerve. It is located in the Occitanie region of France is also the location of a Cathar genocide in 1210. 140 parfaits were killed for they refused to deny their way of life. They were killed in the bottom of the gorge of the town. They were killed there as it would allow the water to carry them away and make it easy on those that did the killing.
For once the herd of 44 people on the tour were quiet as we filed through the village into the gorge. Ironically as horrific as the act was, the gorge was at peace. GREAT peace resides there. Two of our group members, who are excellent singers, shared their gift by serenading us. That is when the tears came forth for the day and, excuse the pun, the catharsis happened.
I felt myself undergoing a healing and the puzzle pieces if not put back together, at least they recognized other puzzle pieces. I offered a healing to the waters that had already healed, probably millions and felt the love wash over me.
We then ventured up the gorge to yet another delicious meal and I felt lighter with each step and more like myself than I had in a few days.
Where will Mary Magdalene lead me next?
In a nutshell... who knows!
I do know I am receiving more and more information from her. We created her essential oil blend that I shared with the tour as a gift and received reviews such as "I'm in Jerusaleum; back in the Holy Land." That in itself was the greatest compliment of them all, so I shan't bother you with more.
Her sigil, I believe is final. It had been evading me for a bit, but now I do believe we have come to an agreement of sorts.
We are beginning a new book, her and I. This is not about her per se, but to bring forth teachings in a loving manner and that I all I can about that for now.
So stay tuned and know whatever is created through her, is created through LOVE. No other energy is needed.
What are you birthing? May 22 2018
We are in the midst of a major weather pattern here in the States right now.
Rain and lots of it for the next four days.
As Gabi and I went on our magical walk today. I asked the angels to provide the message today since there was nothing pressing on my mind. I've noticed many of our walks have a theme and that theme is most definitely a message, an angel message not only for me, but for those that wish to read and/or listen.
Our first encounter was a beautiful Canada Goose with her brood of five goslings. She stood tall and kept a very watchful eye on us. I snagged a few photos without much alarm on her part and kept going.
Wait, Five goslings? Of course this is an important number! It's the number of change, transformation and more.
Of course I was then compelled to chat with Goose and find out what they mean. I've adored their honking since a child living at the beach and hearing them migrate by the thousands. Did you know that Canada Goose mates for life? Once they've chosen their mate, it's for life. They are also very community oriented and believe and work as a team within their chosen community. The next time you see a gaggle of them, I can pretty much guarantee there is at least one sentry standing guard as the others feed. This one is in charge of guarding at the moment.
All of this happened minutes from home. Now I couldn't wait until we got in the woods!
The Walk and Angel Chatting Continues
Scampered off to the woods we did to decompress before the next front of rain came through and to see what else was in store...
Gabi loves to stop at her favorite watering hole to wade and sip. Today was no different. The water was running fast and she quickly went up to her chest where normally it was perhaps knee height.
Her little stream was quite full and was running fast.
Once replenished, we continued forth...
There's a rather large mud puddle that runs parallel to the main trail to the Potomac River.
We were drawn to take a peek...
Pollywogs! aka Tadpoles. Babies by the dozen! We, ok, ME, had a blast to sit and watch them swim all over the place.
A theme was starting to take shape...
We made a direct line for the Potomac River. It was swollen. There is typically a 10-12 foot drop at the bank. Today? I could lay down and touch the water, the water was indeed that high. She was quite swollen and running fast.
Gabi and I sat and pondered for quite a while. I must admit I was rather mesmerized by the river, the power and the pace she flowed.
I did what I normally do, chatted it up with The Gang, the angels.
The Angel's Message
As we sat, the angels came in fast and furious.
Have you noticed today's theme Christine? Babies, fast motion, swollen.
Yes and I've come a conclusion. You are asking me/us to pay attention to our thoughts and actions, correct?
Yes. What you DO and THINK is what is birthed in your life. What kind of seeds are you planting and nurturing? Are they ones that you really desire to focus on or are they fear based?
A little bit of both if I am being humanly honest.
We know this, which is why we wished to point out the obvious and give you a good dose of reminding you that thoughts indeed have an energy. Your actions carry an even greater charge of affecting other areas of your life.
When you are tired, you are to rest. Yes, the mind is an active one, but if one must continue to be active when tired, pick an activity that does not require concentration such as cleaning, gardening, meditating, etc. Attempting to work on something that requires more gray cells will only lead to errors and more frustration.
Many of you have complained of late of weight being added to your physical body for no known reason. The reason is energetic; you are birthing into a higher level of magnificence and this birth requires more energy than you typically exert. Allow the weight to come on, eat wisely, rest well, exercise as needed to keep you body flexible. The weight will come off quite quickly with no illness involved.
One more thing, pay attention to those ideas of inspiration you get. You do not have to act on each one immediately by any means. However, jot down notes. Allow your mind to wander in expansion mode on the various ways to accomplish this inspiration. Just allow. Just BE.
Remind all who read this that they too are birthing and jumping into higher levels of energy on their personal spiritual path. To be gentle on themselves and do not settle for anything less than 100% participation.
We love you all so.
WOW! I so didn't expect such a dissertation, but I'll take it!
Change May 09 2018
Change is a funny word, don't you think?
We all seem to crave better (which is change), but often do our darndest to stay in the comfort zone of where we are simply by not doing anything to facilitate the change.
This very topic was the crux of last night's LIVE chat with the Authorization Students... sorry can't share the video with you, for it is only for the students of The Course. However, I can share some key points that will hopefully propel to take steps to allow the space for your change to come forward.
Why do we avoid change?
Pure and simple, we are lazy. We really are a lazy breed. Think about it, how much time do we spend in front of the Boob Tube, aka the television? More hours than we would care to admit in most cases. What can we possibly accomplish when we watch TV? Okay, there is the occasional needlework project or puzzle, but for the most part, not much is accomplished with the exception of a clocking ticking by.
Implementing change means work. Implementing change requires a bit of effort, sometime BIG effort, and other times, very little. Change is change and that means something requires effort.
Humans, in general are a complacent bunch. We LOVE to complain about something, but rarely take the next step to make it different. Why? In order to take the next step(s), we need to go out of our comfort zone, that little imaginary box that we have built around ourselves that constitutes our lives. We don't wanna do that.
Where does change start?
Sometimes change is initiated from an outside source; a death in the family, a move for business purposes, health. We have to adapt to 'this' in order to make life bearable once again. Notice the word bearable was used vs. thriving.
However, when one initiates the change for whatever reason, it actually becomes easier. Why? Because we thought of it, got excited and decided to move forward.
Change starts within. Change starts with a knowing that something isn't working any more and in order to make it work better again, one needs to shift. You shift when you realize something needs to change. That realization begins to blossom and grow and at times gnaw at you until you do something about it.
Believing it or not we are constantly shifting and changing. Simply by standing still at a checkout counter, we are shifting, we crave balance and yet often actively consciously run from it.
Where to start?
I LOVE clutter clearing. I frequently will become a whirling dervish of sorts and start going through drawers, closets, cabinets, bookshelves and more to empty.
Yes, as an example, the bookcase in my office has six shelves. Each shelf has space for at least two books to be added. However, most shelves can easily accommodate another five. WHY so much extra space? It is a sign to The Gang that I am open to more wisdom, information, knowledge to come forth in my life. In other words, who do I think I am to know everything?
Allow a sense of space to infiltrate your sacred space to allow more of what you do desire to come forth.
How to proceed
Create your own space.
Many years ago I had a friend visit our home for the first time. As typical, I gave them 'The Nickel Tour' - you know a quick tour of the house. As we finished, I awaited the accolades of how pretty it was, etc.
Crickets could be heard chirping outside.
Instead her first comment was, where is your space? I was dumbfounded. MY space? I had the entire house! Ummm NOPE was her answer. Your children each have their own bedroom, your husband has an office AND a woodworking space.
Ummm... I have a closet that I use as a sewing area? Does that work?
I dwelt and hearted on this 'dilemma' for a few days. A family conference was then called. Their response was similar to mine: YOU have the entire house. Ummm no I don't. Thankfully they listened. Plans were then made to take over the guest room. A bookcase was purchased; yes the same one mentioned above. Did you know my energy was so scattered that I had multiple copies of the same book many times over!
This room became my space. A space so sacred and honored that every one asked if they could enter while I was in there.
It was heaven.
Morale of the story? Where is YOUR space? A spot to call your call, where you can have your things about you. That are treasured, referred to and more. A space where you can dream, nap, create and more.
Well if you don't bother, nobody else will lend a helping hand. You must take the first, second and sometimes third step and beyond so folks notice.
They will notice. I promise you. They may even balk (remember we are innately lazy and don't like change, even if that change is someone else changing).
However, once you begin to take those blessed steps, the universe conspires, conspires I tell you, to assist you in all of your heart based endeavors.
That is why you bother.
For until you do 'bother' with you, life will continue to be stale, unassuming and rather boring and at times frustrating.
The End Result
The end result is never really known for life continues to unfold and change.
However, once you say YES to you, be rid of the things that no longer juice you up, make you a priority at least 50% of the time, you will BEcome a more joy-filled, love-filled, prosperous-filled YOU.
Isn't that worth following through on?
Spring is the rebirthing time April 18 2018
Spring is my favorite season. It may have to do with that is the season I was born into and yet who knows.
What I do know is that I get giddy every single spring when life begins anew. To give witness to the plants coming back after a long hibernation. To hear the birds singing their chorus each and every day upon awakening. To see all the various shades of green as each tree and bush comes to life. To have my senses awaken and drink in the new.
What a metaphor Spring is for us. To take this time of regeneration, renewal and rebirth to focus on what matters to us. To allow ourselves some slack that we are indeed far from perfect and it's time we stop pretending we are. To allow this time to refocus on what matters to us; what exactly are our dreams and how can we now better manifest them into this reality.
I just had this kind of chat this morning on one of Gabi's and my magical walks through the woods near our home.
We had some big storms barrel through in the past week and since today is rather sunny and much warmer off to the woods it was for us. Besides, Gabi hadn't gone swamping in a few days and was letting me know...
As we entered, there is a typical spot where we stop and Gabi refreshes her self with a light stroll through the water. Today was no different. What was different is that instead of jumping into the woods there, I was told to go back stay on the main trail.
For once I listened immediately.
Back to the main trail; however, there is a spot that has quick access to the stream we typically walk with and the water way is currently so swollen we were at least 30' away from the trail and still standing in water!
We then backed up yet again and headed straight to the river. While the photo may seem unremarkable at first glance. Look closely, the river is so swollen that she is up a good five feet. Now, one could walk in (do not recommend as the tide was moving quickly). Typically one has to jump down to the shoreline.
The river is very pregnant you might say and swollen as women tend to get prior to birth.
Taking the Road Less Traveled
Okay, this trail is obviously a trail, but we had to divert a few times due to the river cascading onto the trails. Higher ground was the answer. Gabi and I both reveled in the birth of all the flowers and wildlife in the area. In fact we ran into another goddess who had just seen a wild turkey!
As we meandered on this mostly dry trail we were able to relax a bit (although Gabi was perturbed that there was no off leashing done today.) and to stop and literally smell the flowers, see the birds dancing on the river and to use the metaphor to enjoy the journey and not race to the finish line. Trust me, there is no medal for getting done first in this thing call life unless you consider death medal worthy. Enjoy the journey and all of its twists and turns!
The journey continues
As we meandered across the forest still hearing the river dancing in the distance the idea came in that we are all going through a pregnancy of sorts at this time. What are we gestating?
Bottom line, where is our energy focused? Is it on lack? Then more lack will show itself. Is it on new projects (so guilty here, more books, jewelry designs and aromatherapy). Is it taking that proverbial leap and know we shall be caught? Guilty here too as we just finished planning a real vacation at the end of this year; first one in a good five years.
I ponder this pregnancy thing along this trail and gave myself a good talking to on what I was birthing as compared to what I want to BE birthing. Some were the same and some vasty different. I suggest you have the same kind of conversation with yourself.
This IS the Year of Love. The more we can love on ourselves the more we shall love life. This is not a selfish act by any means, but recognizing our desires, our dreams and needs and giving ourselves permission to create and receive them into a full blown manifestation.
There are so many ways to love on yourself; a walk in the woods - shocker I know that I even mention this one, taking a class just because, taking time out to journal and allow our minds to wander on our baby. Writing down these kinds of ideas and giving ourselves permission to BE to deepen our energy to that baby not only amps up the energy surrounding that creation, but offers details on the physical manifestation of it in your life.
We finally finished the trails and came back to the main path to head towards home. We passed by a few rather large puddles only to see babies! Yes there are tadpoles birthing in puddles! I find this extremely cool that the metaphor came full circle or better yet manifestation. Think about it:
- The swollen river representing pregnancy
- The journey and how the path is rarely truly straight
- And finally the birth of babies.
All it takes to manifest your desires, in the form of energy is the allowing the process to happen. Allow yourself the time to dream, imagine and feel it happening. Allow yourself to receive, in other words, know you are worthy to receive all that is desired.
Remember, there is truly never a perfect time to have a human baby. There always seems to be bills to be paid off, things to acquire, etc. before it's ready for Baby. Likewise, there is really never a perfect time to take time for yourself because there is always something that seems to be calling louder and requiring our attention. Like dishes. Or ironing. Or errands. Or...
Except YOU ought to be first and foremost at all times. Take some time during the remainder of this moon phase to focus on your dreams.
What to Do
Take that time, that precious (Oh I'm sooo busy time) and make it yours. Remember, if you don't take yourself seriously, nobody else will.
Keep a journal nearby. Write in said journal. Make categories if need be.
Take time to dream. Rome wasn't built in a day. A baby isn't born overnight. These babies of ours need nurturing. These babies need coddling. These babies need thought so we can live our dreams as we desire.
Aren't you worth it?
I think so as does Chamuel, the Angel of Self Love. We all could love ourselves more to allow what is desired to be born.
Here's to you.
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.
Need some help? Pop me a note or schedule a session.
Mercury is revving up its last dance for 2017 November 29 2017
While Mercury does not officially go 'backwards' (retrograde) until December 3, it appears it is already affecting many via their energy levels, sensitivities and oh so much more.
While I can certainly lay the tiredness completely at my feet with the crazy schedule we took on this past fall, but that is just not it completely. Otherwise I would be the only one doing the Weary Dance.
Many may lay claim to the vast amount of richer food eaten over the holiday weekend...Guilty here too. We love the holidays in our home; playing games, nibbling, laughing, cavorting, yelling at football teams, drinking and more.
However, that is not the only culprit either.
Oh, so is Mercury doing its dance a bit early? Think so. Before you start panicking and desiring to put the pillow over your head until December 22, think of it this way.
Mercury in Retrograde is a gift.
Yes you read correctly, a gift.
You see, when Mercury does go retrograde, it is a golden moment to ponder, reflect and learn. We've ALL done stuff we aren't proud of. It's part of the Human Dance. Now is the time to reflect on how you may address a similar situation. Perhaps you would be a bit more non-judgmental. Perhaps you would be a bit more loving (especially towards self) Perhaps...
Mercury in Retrograde is great at triggering emotions and bringing them to the surface. You know those 'things' that we think are long forgotten, but are really just under the surface waiting for the opportunity to pop so they may heal. Through that healing we are given another opportunity to love on ourselves a bit more. This is a golden opportunity to sit quietly. Is it a real fear or imaginary fear? Certainly walking down a dark alley at night is not the best choice (legitimate fear). Compare it to feelings of lack. While that may certainly feel real, it's more of a thought pattern vs. a real threat to your existence. Can you see the difference between the two?
You don't have to find the initial time it happened in order for it to heal completely, but sit with that pattern from a non-judgmental viewing box. You will begin to realize that exists mostly in your mind which can keep you stuck and immobile. Now is the time to softly release it through your acknowledgment of it and let love flow more freely.
Remember, nobody gets a ribbon if they get to the finish line first (death). It is truly about the journey and how each turn is handled; with fear or with love.
The choice is yours.
This Mercury in Retrograde has many of the earmarks of offering all sorts of these kinds of situations.
Lovely, just what I NEED (like a hole in the head) you're thinking.
Yes, just what you need. Remember, 2017 is The Year of Transparency. This is the last hurrah to BE transparent with yourself. What do you desire? How do you truly wish to live? If you aren't truthful with yourself, how can you expect others to follow suit?
This, once more (feeling like a broken record here) sets the stage for 2018, The Year of Love.
It is time to LOVE yourself more.
It is time for LOVE to win.
It is time for LOVE to prevail.
Thanks Mercury in Retrograde!
Did you ever wonder? November 01 2017 2 CommentsDoes your mind ever play games with you? Mine does. I begin to wonder if this illusion we call life is real and if I am who I say I am.
How is the soul always evolving? October 12 2017
Life can be a funny thing, can't it?
We yearn for different, better, etc. and yet we fight against the change. We crave the change and then run from it when it's presented. And yet we are constantly changing and evolving. We really can steer this vehicle to our advantage. We can evolve with more grace.
Please try to let that angst go... just a wee bit. Just this week we had a fantastic discussion in our Authorization Course conference call. What became very obvious was that no matter the situation, most would rather stay with what they know vs. the unknown.
The unknown is just that, unknown. It's vast. It's open ended. It's scary. Oh, but how fun is that?! You get to re-create how you wish to live your life! In other words, you get to live life on your terms.
It's loving yourself MORE.
It's in this Love Fest of Self that the soul truly evolves.
To put it in hopefully a less confrontational way; hasn't your diet changed over the years? If you are like any red-blooded human, you've been on a diet at some point. Whether the diet lasted to meet your goals or was only a passing fancy; you desired change.
Likewise, haven't your taste in clothes also changed? I'm preparing to go out for a very nice dinner tonight with my husband and came across a dress that had me wondering why it's even still in the closet. Off to the donation pile it has gone.
These outwardly changes are just a bit of an indicator of what we are processing internally.
When those internal shifts are acknowledged, greater change is then reflected outwardly. Think to a time when you stood up for yourself. Whether it was an abusive relationship that you ended (makes me very happy you did so). To ending a bullying situation because being a doormat was no longer an option. To perhaps simply speaking up and no longer desiring to be the lovely wallflower. You got more comfortable with who you are why you here.
You spoke up.
Maybe, you used the Askfirmation
Why is it safe for me to BE me?
This one Askfirmation alone will change your world for the better for the rest of your life. Why? The Universe conspires to work in your favor due to the positive question you are now asking. You take your power back bit by bit and you evolve.
You come home to BE.
It is taking that road less traveled. Perhaps being a leader in your field of choice. Being a leader can be lonely! You walk proudly ahead and never give up on your dreams. You pave the way so others may take an easier and smoother path. You follow through. Is each new adventure a door opener so others may find you? Maybe. Sometimes it is more a private adventure for you to better understand who you are and why you are here. No matter if you are a chosen leader, or not, you are, through your actions, teaching others how to BE.
Simply by BEing you, you are a leader. You are an inspiration.
You better understand it is about the journey and not the destination. We truly never know what is around the corner at the soul level, but we do keep moving forward. Our soul itches to BE and in the process of BEing, we chose a path and we grow and we dance through those unknown turns.
Rarely is path straight for long. Wouldn't life be boring if it was always so neatly laid out? I think so too. However, a straight path is presented periodically it can be thoroughly enjoyed to catch a breath and revel in how far one has traveled.
We have all had undesirable stuff happen to us. Some more horrific than others and I am in no way belittling the horrific. However, if we can take each situation for what it offers us at a soul level and grow from that, we get to never experience that disharmony again.
It's taking that road less traveled that you lead. You lead through your example of living life to the fullest; on your terms. You no longer strive to impress or mimic others. You realize and own the fact that you don't wish to be like them.
You desire to BE you.
THAT is when the road less traveled turns to LOVE.
Love of self.
Love with no conditions.
You better accept your foibles and your human imperfections; and while not making fun of self, you acknowledge those beautiful imperfections and realize this is just of the many ingredients that make the complete, beautiful package known as you. This is where Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love, is your winged bestie. She will continue to remind you to put you first. She will remind you to conduct Acts of Self Love that leave you rejuvenated, replenished and loving self more.
As you continue to evolve and come back to self, the universe at large notices without you saying a blessed word. Their response? Loving you more for who you are, not what you are going to do for them.
Why? Because you are evolving.

Full Moon, Lion's Gate and Solar Eclipse... OH MY! August 07 2017 2 Comments
The time is here.
High octane energies are here to help us push through that last bit of labor pains to BE.
In fact today was partial eclipse here on the East Coast.
Here's a list of events and their corresponding dates in chronological order:
- Full Moon (Sturgeon Moon) ~ August 7, 2017
- Lion's Gate ~ August 8, 2017
- New Moon ~ August 21, 2017
- Total Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017
What's this all mean and...
What to do and how to best prepare.
The Lion's Gate
offers a prime moment to review what matters to you and why. When answering the whys, there is truly only one simple question; Does it align with your essence? Today of all days this is the perfect time to set aside time to meditate with an awareness of the universe at large and to allow yourself to slip into the sublime energies that this day offers. Call on Big Mike first will give you the protection and security so you can allow yourself to be wrapped up around them. Set the intention to get clarity of where your life is going and for additional insights of timeline, how, etc. This is not a HOW meditation, but one meant for encouragement and empowerment. If you ask, ideas will be offered. Perhaps not at that exact moment, but then again, you may be quite surprised.
Remember, when any act is done through love, all is possible.
The Double Whammy Event on 8/21/17
How ironic that the new moon and the total solar eclipse are on the same day. Talk about heralding in New Beginnings. Eclipses are known to upset the apple cart, everything goes topsy turvy momentarily as the world stops and watches. This is the perfect time to get rid of the unwanted from your life. On the reverse side of that coin; this is magical moment to reset your inner workings and set new goals/targets that are generated from the Heart. No need for wishing to win the lottery unless there is a great reason for doing so beyond greed.
There is GREAT power in this eclipse... it starts in the 33d state (Oregon) and ends on the 33d parallel in the Carolinas. The number '3' is long associated with the Ascended Masters. It is time to master your desires and why you desire them. Oh the irony... I just glanced at the clock and the time? 3:33pm.
One of the cool things about eclipses is that you don't necessarily feel or see its effect on you perhaps for months. This is not an instant POW of energy (although many of you shall feel it and already are), but the aftermath of this total eclipse will be felt well into 2018.
How to Make it Work for You
I love list making. It makes me feel oh so special when I can cross it off mostly, but it greatly helps me stay somewhat organized. You see, I can get distracted easily on any given day, but as usual, I digress....
Your list? Here are some ideas:
- What you would like to 'accomplish' the remainder of the year and beyond.
- Why you would like to have these come to fruition. This is a BIG one, so spend some time with it.
- What sources could help you get there (pop down whatever comes to mind)
At this point in time, the force is indeed with you. Your manifesting prowess is at all time high. I've forewarned this; be every mindful of what you think, say and do! A thought is a thought is a thought, or is it? You can retrain your mind to think more positively vs. realistic. You are more connected to this beautiful universe and its energies now than ever before. Call upon them to ask for assistance and allow yourself to receive.
Also during this time you will become more inspired with possible new ideas and projects. I can speak from experience on this one. The energy has been building for a month or so now and since, my ahem, Down Time at the shore I've conjured up at least four new products that will be debuting this fall or sooner. Step out of the logical of 'What Makes Sense' it's an easier trap to fall into than one may understand. Go with the flow as the saying goes and you will be quite surprised at the trajectory you head off to.
Rituals you may do during this time:
- Place those crystals outside! This energy is simply too juicy to not allow your crystals to bask in it as well and thereby help you along the way.
- Allow yourself to experience consciousness moments throughout your day. Who hasn't uttered the phrase, 'Where did this day go?' at some point? Me included. When this happens, you've spent that time on auto pilot and weren't able to be conscious about what matters to you.
- If you chose to initiate a ritual, light a sacred candle. May I suggest Haniel; The Angel of Manifestation. He helps you to create your version of Heaven on Earth Reality.
- Take time out daily for you. Spend time in nature along with a journal and just start writing. It may not make sense at first, but in time you too shall be in the flow of things.
Thank you, as always for reading and posting your comments below as well as sharing with whomever you think will benefit.
