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!
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.
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.
New Moon Amplified with Lunar Eclipse...what it means for you February 24 2017 2 Comments
This Sunday, February 26, 2017, we have another whammy event:
New Moon combined with a Solar Eclipse.
You may say 'SHAZAM' now.
Many of you are already feeling the energy build; perhaps you have felt a web or veil covering your eyes. This is due to the time of year that this particular New Moon is in; all very watery energy; Pisces. All intuitive powers are becoming more heightened. Many of my clients have reached out with thoughts that lend to 'am I going crazy?' or 'what just happened?' Gifts that you had as a child and shoved away due to being 'not normal' are now resurfacing and you are better able to connect.
Those of you that can have a tendency to dull the edges with outside influences (alcohol as an example) may feel the pull to do so again. Stand Strong Chatterer! It isn't a test truly, but if your gifts are being heightened, YOU are ready. No longer does the need to dull them exist. You have a beautiful gift and one that is meant to be shared.
For those of you that are empathic, the same holds true. Be sure you are doing daily self care acts to build and strengthen your resolve. Make your home a sacred space. Do a space clearing to rid of the old and allow the magnificent new in. Not sure what to do? I can help energetically and is a service I can explain more fully upon inquiring.
No matter what camp, or any camp you feel drawn to, know that ALL is heightened right now, including your ability to manifest like a Manifesting Machine. Here's an idea, instead of focusing on 'the job', 'the house', 'the client', 'the winning lottery ticket' etc. Focus on HOW you will feel. Step into the revelry. Step into the joy. Step into the empowerment of HOW you feel when these events happen. You'll know you are there when you get those beautiful 'angel tears' (eyes becoming watery at the edges as a way to confirm the pureness of the energy you are in).
By focusing on the HOW part of HOW you will feel, you are allowing 'this or something better' to flow to you at greater speed. All only know what they know. It's why it's called the unknown. By allowing the unknown to step forward, it can be more glorious than you could possibly expect.
This is why I've been badgering so many of you to do your Acts of Self Love daily. Helping you to boost your inner juices, your inner vibe, your inner stirrings from the soul. When this is more full, you are better to step into what is truly desired vs. what you think you desire.
It's for more candle work... I HIGHLY recommend (no more joking here) Auriel and/or Haniel's candle for this event... I know, I know... time is of the essence and will you get it in time? No you will not get it prior to Sunday (unless you are seeing us in Raleigh at the BMSE show this weekend), but you shall for next week. Sit with your FEELINGS as you hold the candle and light 'er up! There is a bit more to it, but suffice it to say, this starts you on your journey.
The veil IS lifting Chatterers, time to step into your power and divinity.
Tom Brady February 17 2017
What a shift, an Angel Goddess chatting football? Kinda sorta
Thanks to my Honey, I got an article about the Patriots Quarterback, Tom Brady, with the headline:
I'm Not Going to Give Away My Power
The article goes on about empowerment and allowing others, or not, to take yours.
"I don't want to give my power away to other people by letting my own emotions be subjected to what their thoughts or opinions are. If someone calls me something, that's their problem. It's not my problem. I'm not going to give away my power."
On the flip side of that scenario:
"You start giving your power away to other people, it's a tough life."
'Nuf said? If you have been with me for a bit, I've used words and phrases very similar to this. I encourage you to be YOU. Fly that Freak Flag HIGH! Remember, we are ALL human and therefore gloriously imperfect. All attack life from a different perspective as a result of life experiences. When others call us names, it most typically is through jealousy, insecurity and certainly fear. Unfortunately I've had my share and I'm sure you have had as well. That's just part of our human adventure. Learning to BE.
Haven't we all succumbed to what other's thought of us? Especially from those we held in high regard? Especially when those thoughts may have given us permission to not go after our very dreams because deep down we were a bit afraid ourselves? Things like, 'how are you going to make money doing that?' or the classic as it pertains to me, 'You chat with angels? (silence) Oh my look at the time, gotta run. Nice chatting with you.' While not derogatory, it certainly isn't an empowering statement and gave me permission for many a year to stay hidden.
We all have fallen prey to allowing other's thoughts to dictate what we do or don't do. I mean it took me YEARS to come out of the closet and proudly state what I do and don't care much what others think about it any more. Why? Because I LOVE what I do; working with clients, creating and all through the help of The Gang.
On the other hand, have you ever had an AHA Moment and not allowed those words to take hold? You kinda got tired of hiding and being submissive? You kinda got fed up with doing what's expected and being put in a box to make others comfortable. You kinda knew it wasn't real.
You quietly or loudly said ENOUGH! At that moment, you stood taller and did what needed to be done for you with greater conviction. You took that first step no matter how scary it felt. You started to share with others your dream. The circle may have been small at the onset, but grew as your inner circle said, 'It's about time!' Didn't you feel all the better for it afterwards? Didn't your smile expand ten-fold.
Of course it did. That is just one reminder of a time gone by when you stood in your power. It's time for the Big Stand In Your Power Moment.
NOW is that time more than ever. NOW is the time to FLY high. NOW is the time for you to SHINE. NOW is the time for you to BE YOU. It's a BIG deal to dance your dance. A very big deal, but it's time Chatterer. Why the urgency? Well truth be told, we're not getting any younger. Do you wish to live life longer at being unhappy or happy?
I'll choose happy every single time.
Why not chat with Archangel Uriel, The Angel of Safety. He will help to shine a variety of ways you can step more firmly into your power with greater conviction and joy. Also use the Askfirmation courtesy of him:
Why is it safe for me to be me?
and remember to allow The Gang to answer you in magical and yet profound ways. This is just one of many steps that you will take to reclaim YOU.
Welcome Home to you.

Are you...? February 16 2017
The angels have nudged me to chat about empathy. What I have come to understand is that ALL are sensitive, but not all are empathic. Webster defines empathy as:
the ability to understand and share the feelings of another
As with most things, there are various levels of being empathic. There are those that typically feel those only close to them. Then the other side of the spectrum are those that can feel the impending earthquake as it starts to rev up. A very wide range indeed.
Below are some more common traits of an empathic person. See if they resonate with you:
- You get labeled overly sensitive
- You cry easily - don't let anyone drop a hat near you!
- You can be lethargic because you get overwhelmed
- You don't care to be in large crowds
- The Bullshit Monitor? Sky high; you know when folks are lying
These of course are just a few of the symptoms. Perhaps now you may have a better understanding of yourself and those around you. It most certainly is not a 'Get Out of Jail Free' card because you are empathic. That would be akin to saying my family has always been fat, so give me that Twinkie.
You can use this knowledge to become empowered. You can use this knowledge as a secret power weapon in understanding others. By being empathic, you actually do know where they are coming from! This helps greatly no matter what you do for a living because you are listening and taking cues from them.
If you are in the woo-woo industry like me, it makes you even better because you can connect more deeply with your clients. By understanding them more purely, you can better tap into what can assist them on any given day. Beware however that you don't fall so much into their energy that you cannot discern a viable tool or tidbit to help them!
Chat with Big Mike, you know Archangel Michael, to help keep at bay unwanted energies. With the use of his mighty sword, more kaka can be cut back allowing you to stand more confidently in your power and not get downtrodden by those around you. Plus your thinking will be more clear and you will know if it's 'you' or the energy around you contributing to your current energy levels.
The benefit of being an empath is that it helps you to LIVE life more fully. You laugh more. You cry more. How dare folks tell you that you are too sensitive, that's just not sensitive! Being an empath and being labeled as one is not something to hide by any means. It is something to incorporate so it is part of your daily existence. After all, it is YOU. Why would you hide it? Do you hide your smile? Do you hide from sharing your wisdom? Do you ... well you get my drift.
Don't be embarrassed to say 'no' if you aren't feeling up to snuff. Because when you do say 'yes' you can mean it with a full heart. I have declined many a social outing simply because the energy felt off.
By gauging your energy level on any given day you better know what you can tackle with greater velocity and focus. I often drive my Honey nuts by seemingly to allow things to lag until I feel good and ready. Once it is time, it gets done in record speed and with great clarity. He just shakes his head, but I know better than he does... after all, I am empathic.
Time to take a breath! February 11 2017 1 Comment
Stress is part of daily living these days. It's become such a natural fact, a way of life that one doesn't quite know what to do with themselves when an opportunity of down time occurs. All this stress eventually leads to more stress and to one hyperventilating.
When one hyperventilates, shoulders tighten, headaches ensue, sleep patterns are erratic and eating is frequently something that one does on the run. None of this is beneficial to mind, body or soul.
Why do these symptoms happen? Simply put the body is not getting the oxygen it needs to operate at its optimum. Oxygen is only being sent to the upper portions of the lungs. If that's the case, and it is, of course the body tightens up! Nothing is providing it with what it needs... oxygen!
This post is a continuation of the campaign I've started with all of you - Daily Acts of Self Love. It's been pure JOY reading what ya'll are doing daily for YOU. If you haven't done so, come join us in the Facebook group! and chat away with some AHmazing Chatterers.
I digress, but they are seriously that great.
Haniel offered this simply, but powerful exercise to me years ago and it's one I've passed on to clients and our group members for quite a while. Here goes:
- Call on Big Mike for some extra angelic protection
- Close your eyes
- Place your hands over your heart
- Feel your heart's cadence; feel its joy, feel its love
- Inhale for four slow counts
- Hold for four counts
- Exhale for four slow counts
- Repeat at least for ten cycles
By doing this daily, you will begin to feel more alive. You will begin to be more focused. You will begin to be present. You will begin to simply BE.
Here's to another step BEing added that allows you to shine!
The Full Moon = YOWSER! February 08 2017 2 Comments
The full moon that we are fast approaching on February 10, 2017 is also called a Snow Moon. It's not a hard leap of understanding to figure out why it's called a Snow Moon; we, in the Northern Hemisphere, get the most snow at this time. However, it is often called the Hunger Moon due to low or non-existent food supplies at this time of year, historically.
While, luckily most don't go hungry especially at this time of year, there is a hunger energy amongst us now. We are hungry for peace, unity and of course love.
It is NO coincidence that I've pushed, prodded and wing slapped you into doing Daily Acts of Self Love now. This helps to support the energy that is being ushered in with this full moon and the crap it is churning up for many. Why so much power now? This gorgeous moon also marks the first Lunar Eclipse of the year. It is indeed Power-Punched to the nth degree.
Just this week I've been reading and hearing from many Chatterers across the world and bottom line? They're wiped out, exhausted and being pushed beyond their limits. Remember what I mentioned a few times in previous posts; The Shadow Has Emerged and it ain't always pretty.
It's time for respect. Respect for all certainly, but respect for self first and foremost. Respect is a form of love. Think about it, when you respect yourself more and more, you may have clearer boundaries of what is acceptable and non-acceptable AND stick to it. You are no longer easily swayed by other's thoughts of worldly or not so worldly events and most important what they may think of you.
Remember, Pobody is Nerfect (taken from one of our daughter's favorite childhood books by the same title). Everybody has foibles. Everybody has greatness. Let's focus on the Beauty and Love for a change and start within ourselves.
Take the energy of this gorgeous moon. Harness this energy. It's not too late to do your own candle ceremony and I HIGHLY recommend the Love Central Candle. Central the LOVE around you. Use that melted wax as a lotion; place over your feet especially the soles and the energy will enter from the ground floor and work its way up. Rub some over your heart chakra. Drink in its energy, its essence. Allow LOVE to permeate. Chat with Chamuel for addition ideas.
It's through loving self first that darkness fails and fails big time. Remember, within the softness of love lies great power.
Not to be left out, Schroeder INSISTS on some lovin' while I write... xoxo
The Angels have the last word... February 06 2017 2 Comments
It's a GLORIOUS day here mid 60s and it's the beginning of February! What 'bright' groundhog said we're getting six more weeks of winter? Me thinks, or hopes at least, he's WRONG.
It's scheduled to rain tomorrow and Gabi and I needed to get out. Off we went into the woods to discover new trails and be adventurous. I called it 'Getting Lost In the Woods'... how right that ultimately was!
I decided to do some catching up with family.
Called mom... no answer
Called my sis...no answer
Called a good friend...no answer
Called one of my younguns...no answer
What gives?! Sandalphon quickly jumped in to tell me that today was for exploring and observing. One simply could not observe if 'one was chatting on the phone'
Well okay then...I guess.
Off we ventured, onward towards the river. We (more likely I was DIRECTED) to take a certain path; down to the biggish stream, cross (thankfully I have waterproof shoes) and to the left. VERY specific Sandalphon, VERY specific... It's a beautiful day and off Gabi and I went. She cavorted briefly with a new friend in the water and her friend's owners were in shock that Gabi is a very young eight years old. We quickly parted ways and did not see another soul for another two hours.
We hugged the river as you can see and then the path headed right. Okay I thought, we're heading back towards the main area.
Deeper and deeper into the woods the path took us. Only hearing the crunching of my feet and Gabi playing in the brush. Hark, do I hear children? We must be getting close!
Not only did their voices disappear, we heard nothing again for the longest time. It was a prime time to chat away with The Gang. Chat we did... where I wish to be, how are they orchestrating it all; support, new folks, etc. How am I to fulfill my mission, etc. It WAS quite the talk let me tell you.
As my handy dandy fit bit buzzed and congratulated me on taking 10,000 steps, we still had no end in sight. I knew Gabi was getting a bit weary (as was I). Within moments, VIOLA! Water! In she went and SMILED. Smiled I tell you! As I was figuring out how to get to the other side, for it looked vaguely familiar, I spied the rope bridge. The Rope Bridge! Yes, it really became that important and deserved to be capitalized for I knew where it was!
As we finally treaded on trails we knew and headed towards home, The Gang chuckled.
"See, we are never far. As your walks, trips, segues may seem off the beaten track, we always take care of you and set you straight. You will always be heading towards your goals, no matter what."
WOW. That's all I need to say....
Sometimes you just gotta... February 02 2017
As an Angel Goddess-preneur, it's often a one woman goddess show. YES, I have loads of folks helping in ALL sorts of ways, so this is in no way discounting their immense love, support and physical help. I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself.
The angels and I have a pact; guess it's the word of the week, and there is a list that is ginormously long of things I wish to do. I really won't bore you with all of those, but suffice it to say I keep myself pretty darn busy. I'll repeat; I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself and I'm usually the Chief Whip Cracker reminding me of what needs to get done like yesterday.
So today, I protested. Yes indeed I did. I broke my routine...kinda.
I still did The Dailies... the channeled messages so many of you look forward to (if you don't know what I'm chatting about, come find me on Facebook), had my morning cappuccino and the routine broke when I took a shower immediately following! Yes, this may be TMI, but I often get so caught up in writing, walking Gabi, etc. showers don't happen until later in the day.
I broke the routine and did errands! Heresy I tell you! Errands! You know one really needs to get out more often when errands are exciting! ;) Errand running I did with Gabi accompanying me as my trusty co-pilot. We arrived back home and decided I'm making one of my husband's favorite dinners tonight... SHHHH... roasted chicken, homemade cranberry sauce and homemade stuffing. He will be giddy.
After that, I still wanted to rebel. Off Gabi and I go on our walk and we tried a new path; going deep into the woods.
Gabi ventured further off trail than ever. She went swamping:
We laughed. Okay I laughed, she grinned:
We walked over five miles today and came home rejuvenated! I had set my intention with Sandalphon (Angel of Grounding) before we left home to better understand a new section he wished included in the Authorization Course for students. At best it had become a Hair Hurting Experience, but as we were out, he offered insights in ways that I finally 'got it'.
So sometimes, you just gotta go on a flyer, break your routines and have a bit of fun when it's not scheduled. My Act of Self Love today is complete. What did you do for you?
Let's make a pact.... February 01 2017 2 Comments
Today is February 1 - This month we have pretty much decided to dedicate it to LOVE and it is evident in a variety of ways:
- Heart-shaped boxes filled with yummy chocolates
- St. Valentines Day
- More couples profess their love in February and get engaged (including yours truly)
- and so on
Hearts are everywhere! In fact, we went out to brunch with my sis and her honey just last weekend and I've never seen a restaurant so decked out for Valentines Day. Hearts were everywhere! From the ceilings, the windows and mirrors. It was very beautiful, but WOW!
I digress, which is fairly easy for me to do at times.
Today, being February 1 and The Month of Love...let's make a pact, you and I.
Let's focus on ourselves! Yes, you read correctly. Focus on SELF first. I've been chatting LOADS with Chamuel lately; you know, The Angel of Self Love. She constantly reminds me to take it easy with a variety of ideas; baths, naps, walks with Gabi, bed earlier (yet to accomplish that one) and reading a book - just for the fun of it. Why?
Because loving yourself first isn't selfish, it's imperative!
Read that again. It IS imperative. Why? Because as you refuel your body, mind and soul, you become more energized. When you are more energized, you have more to give. Play with me for a moment, have you ever notice how many more 'idiots' there are in the world when you are tired? Me too. They aren't idiots at all, and you know this deep down. You, darling, are what is called overtired, tapped out and running on fumes. There simply isn't enough coffee in the world to keep you going and staying in your happy place.
So let's make a pact. Every. single. day. in the month of February you do something for YOU. The list is as long as it is varied. Here are some ideas and I would LOVE to hear of some of yours.
- Bubble Bath
- Say NO and stick to it
- Say YES with glee and mean it
- Hug someone for 30 seconds or longer ~ HEART TO HEART
- Sit with some rose quartz crystals - heart shaped of course ;)
- Place your hands over your heart and say, "I Love You."
- and _________________________ you fill in the blanks
Here's to Self Love! Remember:
Mindfulness ... what is YOUR practice? January 30 2017 1 Comment
As we continue to head in a seemingly downward spiral, it is easy to get off track and fall headfirst into whatever drama is being presented to you whether it is global, social or private.
It's easy to go to bed with a headache or feelings of frustration or fear.
I'm not saying ignore what is being presented. What we (the angels and I) are suggesting is that you take a literal step back and practice mindfulness. By being more mindful, extraordinary events can take place.
By being mindful, you are aware of the world around you and that also means aware of the solutions that may be hidden from you if you are not practicing mindfulness. When one is present, one can see all, but does not 'own' it as theirs. THIS little switch can make all the difference in the world; your world.
How to practice mindfulness? This does not mean you begin to emulate the Dalai Lama and meditate for hours on end. As an example, I've recently re-discovered yoga. I'm going three times a week and was only able to attend once last week; my inner equilibrium missed it terribly and it affected my entire being. By taking yoga off the mat, my patience and tolerance for ALL expands. My love for ALL expands. There are many yoga modalities. If this intrigues you, find one that suits your schedule, your energy and your physicality.
Be sure you are eating properly for YOU. If you've been with me for a bit, you know I don't promote any one particular food lifestyle. Some folks needs meat. Some folks don't. It's that simple. However, we can all agree that consuming a container of Ben & Jerry's ice cream is not the best course of empowering action. Right? Ask each food how it benefits you. Bless the food each time you eat. A simple thank you goes a long way.
Lighting a candle with intention helps to shift the energy of any space. Of course I prefer my candles. They are already infused with angelic energies, but if you don't have any on hand, get a new candle and as you hold it, put energies of one emotion in. Perhaps love. Perhaps transmutation. Perhaps health. Perhaps...
Daily meditating is of course high on the list. Your meditation practice need not be hours. But rather 15 minutes or so will get you started living life with greater clarity, love, joy and the ability to rise above the fray.
Spending time with like-minded souls is lovely... ONLY IF it does feed the Fear Monster. That only exacerbates the situation and will have you feeling more drained and confused quicker than you can turn around.

What are YOUR desires? January 27 2017
Apparently the angels have me on a roll and it's time, even for me, to step up and out more visibly and frequently; not just at shows.
This is one of the vehicles I shall be much more active in this year.
Today's blog post is about our first New Moon in 2017. While the year has just begun, what a beginning, eh? There indeed is much turbulence in the world at this moment and many are feeling at a loss for words, let alone actions at this moment.
Take advantage of today's New Moon. The spectacular energy that is heralding in with this moon brings with it a sense of union, going for the gold, BEcoming more you. This IS the perfect time to make your Vision Board. If you haven't already done one for 2017, NOW is the time. Yes, you can do this over the weekend, as the cycle of moon while strongest tonight, stays more or less in this energy for the next two nights. This is a perfect weekend activity!
Now is the time to evaluate relationships. Not just the 'old' ones (ironically going to visit a dear 'old' friend today recovering from hip surgery) but to celebrate new ones. Your strongest relationship is of course with yourself. Have you been lying to yourself in hopes of seeing a different outcome? Are you letting yourself stay stagnant because the unknown is a bit more unsettling for your tastes? Remember, Rome certainly wasn't built in a day. Reclaiming YOU may take a while. It's one of the reasons I'm here; offering private sessions. (shameless reminder plug here).
Take stock of all that is affecting you at the moment. Some clients have completely dis-engaged from social media for a bit to allow themselves to recoup, rejuvenate and recharge. Some have picked up a great inspirational book. Some have gathered closer to friends for camaraderie. Some are vesting more in Acts of Self Love; daily walks, yoga, energy treatments and one of my favorites; bubble baths. Do what is best for you; nobody has walked in your shoes. Nobody really knows how stuff affects you. YOU is what matters. YOU.
Harness in today's energy. Project out where you wish to be in one year. Set your intentions. Then release the 'hows'. Ask the angels, specifically Auriel (The Moon Angel) t illuminate the correct path for you at this moment in time.
Remember, all is as it 'should' be at THIS moment. The next? Up to you.
