What are YOUR Roots? April 30 2018 1 Comment
Gabi and I take regular walks in the woods that I have dubbed Magical Walks. As we prepare to leave home, I pose a question for The Gang (aka the angels) that I wish them to answer while we are out and about. Sometimes I get direct answers. For example while working on the Authorization Course section on Sandalphon and he decided he wished to discuss the kabbalah. Other time
I typically share our adventure with our Facebook Group (if you are not yet a member, you are now lovingly invited to join us in sacred space - Angel Chatter). It finally dawned on me that as I take pictures to later share in our group, that the pictures seem to carry a theme; a message if you will. How's that? I simply appear to be drawn to taking certain kinds of pictures on any given day.
Last week's walk was no different; I asked for clarity as we left home. We entered the woods near our home and I was immediately drawn to the roots of trees. Roots that were exposed. Roots that created beautiful art. Roots that simply chose to BE. I photographed many and are sharing a few here.
What are YOUR Roots?
As this realization finally dawned on me - Magical Walks with Themes... I asked, what do tree roots have to do with anything? How do they help me with the clarity request that I asked.
Sandalphon, The Angel of Grounding, was quick to respond:
Think of the roots as a metaphor.
What is a common theme for you and your business, Angel Chatter?
What do you keep repeating, and approaching in a variety of ways? In other words, what do you keep circling back to?
He then asked the final question:
What do you stand for?
Roots as the Base
He then began a tutorial of sorts.
As most plants grow, they require a strong root system to help support them as they BEcome more powerful, strong and flexible when the wild winds blow. This is pretty universal. True there are some plants that don't require this - air plants for example, don't necessarily require much in order for them to thrive, but that is definitely not the norm.
Humans are much the same. They require strong roots the can enable them to be grounded in their truth while soaring.
Think of a seed. Any seed will do. The seed must be planted in fertile soil in order to germinate and grow, correct? The fertile soil nourishes the seed as it spreads its roots allowing this plant to BEcome what it is meant to be.
Humans are no different. Those seeds can be representative of desires; how one wishes to live life. Fertile soil is the heart. Seeds require nurturing. They can easily fed though Acts of Allowing. BEing proactive in nourishing these seeds; as ideas are conceived, the heart expands, eyes can become watery, the body responds with those beautiful confirmation chills. One can envision those desires to completion, the finished products whether it is living in a new locale and how, to hearing the whisperings of a loved one's words, to see that project in its entirety. We hug those smiles close as we see it birthing. Those smiles is one of the many ways a YES is recorded that says you LOVE this idea and are claiming it.
By saying YES the desires get nourished and then work begins. Allowing play time AND work time to encourage those seeds to reality. Others are allowed to step in for support and share their expertise. The Art of Allowing BEgins.
The Root of it ALL
As most humans go, each soul is drawn to a specific area of life. Whether called to BE an Accountant, Angel Goddess, Chef, Inventor, Coach, etc. one keeps going back to it. However, as each evolves and experiences life, how the desires are addressed changes and alters to reflect where each person is now in their life.
Our roots may spread from the base. They may spread far from the base. They may latch onto something magnificent and yet... they all come back to the center, which of course is you.
What do you keep going back to?
I hearted on this... YES, hearted vs. thought.
Inspring and empowering others that has been the common factor for decades. Waaaay back in 7th grade I said I wished to be a psychologist. I ended up at court reporting school, so obviously did not listen to the whisperings of my heart instead listened to a guidance counselor who had no clue.
Another story for another time.
However, I did attend college for few years with the intention of psychology. This was a good 15 years after high school. I went back to my roots of helping others. I still didn't complete that program, but rather studied a bevy of other ways to listen, inspire and empower others. I circled back, but since I had evolved quite a bit since 7th grade, the catalyst to help others also morphed. Becoming a truer reflection of who I am and how I wish to live. I trained in Soul Coaching™ and various forms of healing modalities and Angel Chatter was born.
Where do your roots lay?
Our roots may go all over the place and yet they still lovingly lead back to us, the center. We may seemingly go off track, but is it really?
Each journey, each segue contributes to who each person BEcomes. For each life adventure then becomes a memory, as an emotion is stored that feeds the soul. As always it is up to each soul how to act, react and process each journey.
Is it always easy? Oh how I wish! Are they all meant to be savored like a fine wine? I'd hazard a guess and say a big fat ol' NO!
However, each does lay the groundwork to how we BEcome of service. Whether it is through a bonafide business, or helping a friend in need, writing a book, crafting beautiful art, accounting, medicine, law, etc.
Again I ask you, what are your roots? What do you keep circling back to?
The strength lies in the roots
As each soul steps into more of honoring who they are, more begins to fall into place for them.
Why? Because they are honoring, truly honoring who they are and why they are here. The have begun the dance of Self Love. Through that waltz, loves triumphs and reigns true.
We are circled by those that love and honor us. That power that is longed for but often pushed away. Just as the flower and foliage is thriving around this tree in the midst of rubble, we too can thrive in the midst of chaos when we stand tall and love us for who we are.
Life really is a wild ride, isn't it? We are expected to grow, prosper, be healthy and loving all the while stuff happens around us. Remember, YOU, each and every one of us is the calm in the center of the storm.
Stand tall in your loving power and others will wish to emulate you.
There appears to be great upheaval right now. Great upheaval not only globally, but it has trickled down to personal lives as well.
These are questions I've been pummeled with in just the past couple of weeks from clients, students and customers at shows.
This made me stop, ponder and ask The Gang.
WHAT is going on?
While it may seem everything is out to stop, thwart and/or control your every move. It is really far from the truth...or is it?
Of course it is the truth if you allow it to BE so and accept it as outside sources are out to get you.
However, remember, ALL is an illusion and sometimes a quiet breather is all we need to step back and allow ourselves to actually see what is going on. Here are some of the common culprits of this wonky energy:
Too Much IS going on
There is simply too much on our plate. We are that circus act of plate juggling and something must stop the nonsense.
Easier said than done at times, I get this, so bear with me.
I'm no different. Countless shows throughout the year to Inspire and Empower returning clients, new clients, introducing new great products (or hopefully great), etc. Private weekends. Orders, Family, wedding... well you get the idea... all the time attempting to maintain a sense of balance.
However, when I pulled back recently in meditation and asked
Why is it so easy to inspire and empower more?
I got amazing answers. Time to cut back on the show circuit. We LOVE doing shows, but they are tiring and sometimes it can get take a day or two or even three to fully recuperate. This of course leaves us drained with little energy to accomplish much. Feelings of being overwhelmed can become all consuming and can easily slip into a black hole where one just desires to pull the blankets over one's head and hide...for a long time.
However, chatting with Big Mike and using his mighty sword to cut through the crap of what is not needed is more than liberating. Clearing house of the highest order. Not just the stuff, but addressed our product line. We discontinued over six products and not one person has noticed. Not one. Those products were sapping energy and not allowing The New to come forward.
Time to Pull Back, Ask, Listen and Act.
I know, I know, it's extremely easy to fall into the depths of despair (thank you Anne of Green Gables for that phrase) and at times the event warrants the slip to allow one to figure out what is going on. So we can acknowledge, love and heal on ourselves. By going deep we can go higher than ever before.
However, since at heart many of us can be Drama Queens, is it really that dire?
Often times not. This is the prime time to chat with Sandalphon and do two things:
- Get Outside. Literally. No matter the temperature, getting outside for a minimum of 30 minutes can be a tremendous balm for the soul. This simple act of changing up the view that we see switches up our mental faculties and can offer different insights. It's one of the many reasons I LOVE my laptop - my office changes within a moment's notice; by the fireplace, at the kitchen table, actually in the office or out on the balcony to soak up the songs of nature while I work. It's extremely expansive and mind shifting.
- Think Outside the Box. One of my favorite current quotes is by Albert Einstein: Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. How true! IF you are focusing on your desires and they aren't working out as expected, use the Askfirmations:
Why is it so easy to make this better?
Why is it so easy to know the next best steps for me?
Why is it so easy to shift the energy in my favor?
By using the Askfirmations and chatting with Sandalphon, The Angel of Grounding, you BEcome more in your body and can better notice the signs they are offering you to help propel you even further than ever before.
Give it a try.
This is indeed a biggy for us all. How often we live to serve and leave us in an exhausted heap at the end of the day? I know I can be a big ol' pile of mush watching something on Netflix as dribble starts emerging. Bottom line, it ain't pretty.
However, on those days I take the time to nourish my soul, magic happens. I take time to walk Gabi deep into the woods so she can go swamping. I set my intention prior to stepping a foot out the door of what I would like clarity on and let go. As we meander, all sorts of yummy things come to BE.
Taking time for self; the luxurious bubble bath (you now know this is one of my all time favorites), the walk in nature, an exercise class, something, anything you are doing for you gives back to you. I truly cannot stress this enough. You must do this regularly (once a quarter is sooo not regularly).
Why so important? Because you matter. You deserve to BE recognized and loved upon. When you do this, the universe likewise recognizes your energy shift and you begin to be treated with more love, respect and recognition.
As our soul is rejuvenating the cobwebs are taken away. We are saying, YES I need help! We begin to allow more to come in the forms of assistance, ideas and more. Shifts happen and happen more easily, effortlessly and yes joyfully.
Is it always rosy and sunshine?
Of course not. Life does go up and down and it's recognizing the differences that can allow you to take advantage, yes I did just say take advantage, of the dips.
By allowing yourself to go deep you can better see what is triggering the dip. Then chatting with Raphael (Angel of Healing) for healing, Chamuel (Angel of Self Love) for Self Love, Zadkiel (Angel of Transmutation) for clearing and lastly Azrael (Angel of Transition) to transcend this gap and leave behind what does not serve you, magic can and does often happen.
It's listening to your soul and acknowledging its truth. It's listening to you soul and allowing love to enter and take hold. It's listening to your soul and know it's time to BE you.
I look forward to reading your responses below!
Five Things to Know About Working with Archangels April 12 2018 1 Comment
As our lives seem to getting busier and busier, it becomes easier and easier to lose touch with the archangels, angels, The Gang.
By the time we realize it has slipped away, we forget how to get it back and keep it. Let's chat....
Step One - Relax.
I know, I know, so much easier said than done, but you know I am right. The more you focus on something, anything, the slippery it seems to get to the conclusion let alone an opening to step through.
It's through relaxing the mind that the body follows suit. How to relax? There are certainly a plethora of ways:
- Meditation. Just start with five minutes before you jump out of bed. Five minutes giving THANKS for what is currently in your life will not only help to jumpstart your day, but open countless doors.
- Exercise. Whether it is a walk in the woods, yoga, kick boxing, tai chi, etc. Your mind takes a small break thus allowing you to BE more present. Remember, it is in the State of BEing that miracles happen.
- Create. Whenever I get in full blown creative mode; writing, gardening, sewing, and/or needlework my mind shuts up. Why? I'm using a not frequent used part of my brain. I'm focusing and having fun in the process vs. the outcome. (OH, get that message? Enjoy the journey!) Many of you have seen the Christmas Stockings I make annually for friends and family. The same love goes into the gardens, perhaps more only because I am in the dirt longer collectively than when I'm in threads and yarns. It doesn't matter the act of what can get you to realign, but engage in it so you can relax.
Remember, it's really any activity you participate in that can hush the mind. The more you engage in this activity, the more the mind can rest thus allowing you to BE.
Step Two - ASK
True, who hasn't asked for their help and claim they have heard nada.
Me too at times. HOWEVER, I will admit that in those times I am upset about something and my mind just won't shut up for more than a nano-second. I ask. I ask. I ask and get zippo. Which of course is really not the case, but feels like it.
One of the ways I've learned to ask is this:
Be specific about what you wish them to help with. Then give the archangels a deadline of when you want an answer. For example,
A few years back I was in a very whiny mood. Very whiny. Was I really suppose to be doing this work? Was I really here to help inspire and empower folks around the world? (no small task, right?) I mean I wasn't seeing things take off. I wasn't this or that. I was whining pure and simple.
I was out walking Gabi and chatting with The Gang. I told them as such and I demanded a sign from them. The sign had to be clear. The sign had to be angelic (after all I am chatting with them, right?). I had to receive it by Sunday. I figured in the four days it took to get to Sunday, my mood would shift and I'd probably forget my request.
Well each day starting with Thursday I was on the lookout; Was THAT the sign? or WAS THAT it? or... Well you get the idea.
By the time Saturday afternoon rolled around I had softened the grip of 'signs'.
Sunday morning our youngest texted me at screenshot of what was being aired on TV at the moment.
Every single show, including the ads, had the word angels in it.
Think I got my sign, eh?
Relax, ask and
Third Step - Allow
Ohhhh, this is probably the most difficult for us humans to grasp and implement. For some bizarre reason we think allowing someone to assist us is a form of weakness.
Including the angels.
I get it. I had that mentality as well for a bit plus you add my control freak tendencies on top of that, it's just not a good combo.
However, I have learned!
We've had some beautiful goddesses helping out at shows in those rare times my honey can't assist in person. As long as I am methodical in my explanations and tips to make their lives easier - it's done to my satisfaction and beyond and I've gotten help! I've allowed the assistance.
Allowing help is not a weakness. It is actually a strength!
Allowing another, even if it comes in the form of a winged and haloed 'person' helps you actually get more out of life from joy, love, health and yes even those mundane tasks to the more pertinent; jobs, etc.
It is a way to relax. That's not to say you kick back while they do all the work. Oh no! It's assigning a task and being proactive on something you can do with greater joy.
Step Four - Accept
Now you may think Allow and Accept are one in the same thing. They actually are not. They certainly overlap, but allowing does not always mean you accept the help.
It's the ol' asking someone to wash the dishes and allowing it. THEN going back and washing them to your satisfaction later. You really haven't allowed anything. You are not fooling anyone and in fact you most likely hurt that person's feelings and lowered their self esteem (which of course is not your intention) and made more work for yourself!
It's allowing the archangels loving wisdom in and accepting it. Remember, the archangels will NEVER tell you are unworthy for anything. They warn you. They guide you. They are here to serve you and only you.
Everything they do comes from love. Everything they do is integrity filled. True, humor may be thrown in for good measure; works quite well on me - gets my attention every time.
Accept their suggestions. It comes in all sorts of ways; through a friend's mouth, through a song, numbers, inspired ideas that you just can't let go and more.
So listen and act upon those juicy inspirational ideas you will certainly be getting.
Step Five - Wait
Did I just actually tell you to wait? Yep, sure did. It's in the waiting timeframe that all your senses can come alive. You BEgin to hear with great clarity, not just the surface message, but the underlying meaning.
You BEgin to see. You give witness to life that is surrounding you; a child's laughter, the butterfly dancing in the breeze, the dew on a blade of grass and much more. Colors BEcome more alive and surpass your comfortable spectrum of colors.
You BEgin to sense more. You know without a doubt when something needs to get done. You understand another's life without judgment and are present to hold space for them.
You BEgin to feel more. You awaken each morning with a smile and a note of gratitude before the day has begun.
All of your senses rise to a higher level of sensitivity which of course allows you to better see, hear, know, feel when the archangels are chatting with you. For once you BEgin to chat and work with the archangels, life is truly never the same. It just gets better and better and better.
Will you relax, ask, allow, accept and receive?
Who are Archangels Michael and Gabriel and how do they help you? January 17 2018
If you are interested in any things woo-woo and/or angels, odds are you know of or have at least heard of Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel. When I think about it, looking back they were probably first in line as part of my initiation of remembering.
Whenever I start introducing anyone to the angelic realm, Archangel Michael, or alias Big Mike, is always first. Why? He is the Angel of Protection. As a leader and teacher I want to be assured that you are protected as you delve deeper into your spiritual practice as you go higher.
Big Mike is one of the few angels mentioned in the bible. He oversees the solar plexus and throat chakra; our place of power and communication. How great is it that when he is by your side that communication becomes easier! When Michael begins to enter your life more consciously, your ride of empowerment is just beginning in earnest.
Michael is the patron saint of the police force in the United States. His color association is yellow and blue. What colors are the the United States police force?
You got it, yellow and blue. Somewhere, somehow, someone knew this and guessing had a deep connection with Archangel Michael and decided to bring that protective power forward. In fact, I’ve had clients share their stories that while in the courtroom they as well as others actually see him there! He’s just cool that way. As any self respecting angel has a tool, Michael is no different. Since he is THE protector, his tool of choice? A sword! He can and will cut through any crap in your life, stand guard (with a smile on his face) and do battle for you when needed.
As all names have a meaning, Michael is no different. His name is translated to mean, “Who Is As God.” What a beautiful reminder that can easily apply to you. YOU are a true reflection of God/Goddess. A beautiful being filled with love, light, joy, immense grace, with a bit of quirkiness thrown in for good measure. As a reflection of this energy, you have the ability to do all you desire. You know, those dreams that can keep you up at night, those dreams that feel real and leave you breathless due to all the beauty and joy it gives to you. Those are the kind of insights that the angels can sneak in to remind you of who you are and what you are meant to be doing. Michael holds one of the keys to help open those doors for you. His question to you is…. ‘Will you step through?’
I’ve had a personal encounter with each of the angels that I directly work with; therefore there is of course one for Big Mike:
It had been one crazy strand of a chaotic few weeks that actually spanned the entire spring season. It started with my dad having a massive heart attack - or the Day the Elephant Danced as he calls it. (It felt like an elephant was dancing on his chest). Dad not only survived, but is now thriving. I happened to be visiting them during this adventure; I naturally extended my visit to help be the comic relief and do what I do best; distract and comfort.
Then we had three back to back expos scattered around the region. While we came home in between each one to restock and slightly refuel, we became tired.
Our youngest then had elective surgery approximately one week after the last show. I trekked across The Chesapeake Bay (about a four hour journey) to be with her. If you have children and they have ever been operated on, you know how I felt. STRESSED! She came through it with flying colors and was released later that day. I then gathered our eldest and we headed to visit her; another hour away. We stayed for the weekend, made yummy food, nurtured, visited, and tried to relax. A few days later, my eldest and I drove back to her home for a Farmer's Market run and quick visit with her and her boyfriend.
I then left their home and headed back to my parents, another four hour trek, to retrieve my Yogi Dog, Gabi.
Tired yet? I was.
As I am driving along, Michael pops in to remind me to have him surround the car.
Shades of things to come?
All was going smoothly, little traffic, and familiar terrain. Gertrude, my handy dandy GPS System, then had me turn onto a road I was unfamiliar with. Since it had been a while since I traveled this particular route, I thought I had forgotten it and listened.
Ugh. The road quickly became barely a two lane road with NO berms/shoulder or dividing line. Oh, did I mention it was VERY curvy? By the time I came to the realization that this is NOT where I wanted to be, I figured, how bad could it get and trudged on.
How bad could it be? Silly question.
Did I mention it was curvy? I drove on, knuckles becoming white as my hands gripped the steering wheel.
I called on Big Mike, just to make sure he was around. I was getting scared and knowing that he was around helped to rest my mind… a little. I mean, I knew I was driving well, but those curves were not making me comfortable as I was unsure how others would handle them.
I drove below the speed limit, very unlike me, and see yet another curve up ahead. Before I could slow down more, a BIG truck is now headed directly for me. Okay it wasn’t an eighteen-wheeler, but I couldn’t see the driver, he/she was up that high. I pulled over as far as possible and was now driving partly on the grass. The truck still didn't pull more to their side and kept plowing ahead.
Before I knew it, I am pressing hard on the horn. How my hand got there still befuddles me. It was as if a hand had gently pried my hand from the steering wheel, placed it on the horn and pressed. Hard.
The truck then pulled more to their chosen side, I think slightly slowed down and passed me. I tell you, I think, I could have put my hand out and touched the truck as it passed. Yes it was that close.
I exhaled. Who knew I was holding my breath?! I look in the rearview mirror, the truck emitted no brake lights and simply kept moving forward.
Heart racing, glowing with sweat, I continuing driving white knuckled for the rest of that trek and practically kissed the ground when I arrived at my folks home.
It was beyond a nerve wracking experience and took hours to calm down.
OH! The next day after sharing this story with a friend, she promptly writes back that Big Mike popped into her office immediately after reading my story and says ‘Yep, I was there protecting her.’ He appeared to her as a flash of white light surrounded by electric blue.
Hopefully this story has proven to you that you don’t need or are required to do a specific ceremony to connect with him or any other angel. Seriously, if I had to stop what I was doing (driving safely) and kneel down, face South before he would listen? I’mmmm not so sure I’d be her right now.
Gabriel is no different in his accessibility to you and all things creative. Gabriel works with the sacral chakra the place of creativity, sexual, sensual and miracles. Before you skip this over by not thinking you aren’t creative, STOP! Every day you do something creative whether it be planning a menu, schedule shuffling, art, writing or problem solving. Each and every day we are tapping into this very juicy chakra.
Toot Toot! That is Gabriel tooting his horn with you in mind. True, a horn is often associated with Gabriel as he can also be called 'The Great Communicator’. He brings news of all kinds; the good, the bad, the ugly and the euphoric. He is the angel accredited with giving Mary the news of the impeding birth of her Son. Talk about euphoric, but what a ‘burden’ knowing what your son was to experience in his life. Gabriel’s horn can also offer the ‘all’s good to go’ sign. In fact, while at an expo, a new client came forward only because she heard Gabriel’s horn while standing at our booth and knew she would get great clarity from the angels through me. What a blessing indeed!
Gabriel also assists in awakening the senses. For example, think of one of the most decadent meals you’ve ever had. You felt the food swirl within your mouth; the textures, the spices. The food felt like it was literally exploding and made you salivate for more. THIS is the senses waking up and truly enjoying what life is offering you. The meal became a sensual experience, just as wearing a luxurious piece of clothing, just as smelling an aroma you adore.
Archangel Gabriel's Mandala
How about those doodles you absentmindedly draw when bored? What about how you decorate your home? What about...So the next time someone says you or they are not creative, just smile and shout out, ‘Au contraire!’ and give a wink to Gabriel for showing how creative you really are.
Gabriel assists in birth as well as death. It’s the Cycle/Circle of Life. He is especially helpful if the grieving process has become difficult; you can’t get past the death of a loved one. Whether it is mourning, blaming self for things said or not said, things done or not done. All those ‘what ifs’ that typically run amuck during this powerfully charged time. This can also include a beloved pet. Allow Gabriel to connect with you and remember the joyful moments of that one’s life and the reason that they were in it; no matter how short or long. If there is something that is still yearning to be said to them, Gabriel can and will assist getting your message delivered. Remember he carries a horn - it acts as a great megaphone.
Just like Michael’s name means Who is like God. Gabriel’s name translates to God is My Strength. What a beautiful reminder that you can build your strength with the assistance of Gabriel. Strength to go after your dreams. Strength to give birth to new ways of being. Strength to be different, and be you. Strength to not only shine, but to share your brilliance with the world.
Hopefully you are beginning to better understand how integrated Archangels Michael and Gabriel are in your lives already. Sometimes it is about connected dots and better understanding of who does what

Oh those numbers.
Those magical numbers that are in our face every single day constantly offer insights and tidbits into the various ways we can BE and what can be in store for us all.
The upcoming Gateway is no exception.
November is the 11th month and on the 11th day a doorway is once more opening for those ready to step more into their Mastery of BEing.
There is no end to this, ahem, race. There is no gold medal to get there first. Therefore take your time and enjoy the ride.
The Gateway is a powerful opportunity to sit in reflection and meditate while focusing on the energies of LOVE.
Start with LOVE of self. Chat with Chamuel, the Angel of Self Love, to pry open your heart allowing LOVE to enter. It is through loving self more that more of what is desired is seen and embraced by each of you reading this.
What we desire? Yes.
Perhaps a romantic relationship.
Perhaps financial freedom.
Perhaps great ease of health to allow more physical activity.
As the saying goes, it does start within. Remember, nobody can love you more than you love yourself; including the universe. That is not to say it is not presented and offered on a daily basis, but if you are not feeling worthy to receive it, you will push it away. It gets pushed away via self sabotage, degrading self talk, anger and more. Oh the excuses are freely offered as to the why it cannot happen.
I will continue to remind you until the day I drop dead that
You Are Worthy of ALL You Desire
Sit with that little ol' sentence until you feel a shift within. It may take a moment or two. They are not asking you to hear the choir of angels singing your praises, but just enough of a shift that it makes you smile. This is the first step of knowing that you are indeed worthy. The first step towards manifesting what is desired and no longer settling.
I'm lighting a Chamuel Candle in honor of YOU. That is how committed I am to helping to inspire and empower YOU. Sit with the picture below and feel its energy coming to you. Allow the LOVE to permeate into every cell within.
You Are Loved
The time is now... September 12 2017 2 Comments
The time is now to remember to breathe and breathe deeply.
The time is now to BE grateful for all that is already in your world.
The time is now to cheer on others as they march to their drum.
The time is now for you to fly your Freak Flag.
The time is now for you to BE the Star of your life.
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.
What the world needs now... January 24 2017
This is so not a political post, but of course many, if not all of you will relate.
Yes, the world is seemingly wonky right now.
Yes, the world is very confusing right now.
Yes, the world can be quite scary right now.
Wish it to go away? Well, I do too, but it's not going until we all change. The change starts within. Remember my post immediately following the election? The Shadow has emerged? Well the shadow is still here and not going anywhere until all can look at themselves in the mirror and LOVE that person looking back at them.
The shadow is a tricky little fella; it is brilliant at churning up the unsavory. It is brilliant at pointing out the elephant in the room. It is brilliant at pointing out the lack. The shadow? All it truly desires is recognition and great love.
Of course it can be difficult to love that unsavory stuff. Remember, you ARE human and therefore perfectly imperfect.
That perfectly imperfect 'crap' is stuff we shoulda coulda woulda done differently in our personal past. ALL can relate to this. But if it weren't for that one lesson, we wouldn't be where we are today; growing, learning, and yes LOVING better.
Loving without conditions. Getting easier at saying 'I Love You' without constraints. For Love is real. Love is powerful. Love is healing. If your shadow has emerged, and it has, so have millions of others.
We ARE at a crossroads to slip back into oblivion or to step forward and claim LOVE as the motivator. What do you chose? IF you chose LOVE, and I hope you do, make a pact with yourself to spend quiet time daily in the essence of LOVE.
Spend time daily to allow you to feel LOVE. Spend time daily to send LOVE out to ALL. You certainly may focus on one area of the world, or a person. Each day will differ from the next, but if every single person sends out LOVE that is powerful.
It reclaiming LOVE as your motivator, you become more empowered. You are more courageous. The Dalai Lama says being courageous is looking fear in the eye and still moving forward. Each person has various levels of courage. As you reclaim LOVE of self, you become bolder, stronger and lighter. Chat with Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love. You will learn new acts of love to direct towards not only yourself but others on a daily basis. Sometimes all you must do is listen.
Can you commit to doing this for yourself daily?
I know I am.
PEACE January 19 2017
There's an old song,
Let there be peace on Earth.... and let it begin with me
With so much going on universally at the moment, upheaval, angst, and dare I say it, fear... it can be easy to fall prey to that energy and unintentionally contribute to it all. This of course makes matters worse, especially for you and you are my main concern.
If you are not meditating daily, now is the perfect time to do so. I've been chatting with the angels - I know what a surprise and I got a bit of a wing slap myself. While I do meditate daily while Gabi and I go for walks, I realize it isn't as powerful as sitting or laying down to meditate. Upon making a conscious decision to meditate daily, it is amazing how much more energy I have. How deeper and more restorative sleep is. Focus isn't a thing to pine away for, it happens!
The first day I laid upon the client treatment table, one of our cats, Schroeder, joined me the entire time. He snuggled deep into my side and demanded I put my arm around him. This may not sound very significant to most of you, or any of you for that matter, but Schroeder is not known for cuddling let alone snuggling. He stayed with me the entire 40 minutes!
He knew this was important. He knew that as long as he stayed with me, I would stay put (funny how cats have that power over us) and this time allowed The Gang to work on me. They cleared energy that had been unwillingly weighing me down. They cleared my mind processes to allow me to plow through the remaining portion of the manuscript so I can now pass it on to the publishing company. One of the best parts? That night I slept for over 5.5 hours! That is the first time in many, many, many weeks.
Begin meditating. We all have a comfort time zone that we allow ourselves to sit still. When that buzzer internally dings, give yourself another few minutes. In those moments magic begins to happen. You relax, insights come forward and are acknowledged and great healing commences.
Is this being selfish? Of course it is! You are taking time out of your very busy day just for you. YOU are important. YOU deserve to be replenished. YOU deserve the quiet and the peace that comes from meditating.
Remember what Gabi's name stands for:
Grace Always Begins Inside
It starts with you.
Use this Askfirmation™:
Why am I so filled with peace?
and remember to allow the angels to surprise you with answers.
Wishing you days that are filled with magic and great peace and love.
Times? They ARE achangin' January 18 2017 2 Comments
Just scroll through any social media site; Facebook specifically and so many folks are sick! I mean bed ridden sick.
While this is fairly common during the winter months, this time it is also a strong indicator of how much the energy has shifted. We are undergoing a BIG shift that is slowly anchoring into our being.
Believe it or not we have entered the Fifth Dimension.
Yes, we have officially entered a new way of being. Our thoughts are playing an even bigger role in what manifests in our personal, social and business lives. Living in fear? you will most definitely become sick and life stagnant.
Living with a bit more optimism? Life will continue its grand march in Utopia as you desire and envision it.
However, let's not kid ourselves, it is crazy scary out there! It is truly the wild unknown. The Wild West seems like a walk in the park compared to what all of us are undergoing now.
This is not the time to go home and pull the covers over your head in hopes that it will sort itself out and all will be fine. All WILL be fine, but you are needed.
You are needed to be present.
You are needed to be conscious
You are needed to fly your personal Freak Flag HIGH
You are needed to love yourself so you may love others
You are needed
Don't run and hide. Stand tall. If you are not a member of our sacred space on Facebook, please join us at Angel Chatter. It is filled with amazing, really amazing people who are loving, joy-filled, intelligent and off the charts supportive of all the other Chatterers.

Happy New Year Chatterers!
With 2016 still fresh in many minds of the tumultuous times, changing times, not sure which way to turn times...It is indeed time to start anew, fresh and create life as YOU wish.
Why this sense of 'urgency' now? Well, it's really not news if you have been following me and subscribing to the monthly newsletter, but NOW is pretty much the time to set the stage for the remainder of your life.
Want to start a new career? Look into it, even if it means going back to school. I know a young man (they get younger as I get older) that switched careers in his thirties and while he may be starting 'over', he couldn't be happier. There is always a way; if you wish it to manifest enough. Will it take time? Perhaps. Just don't let the 'if onlys' get you... you know... if only I had more money to go back to school (there are scholarships for that), if only I had more time (you can find the time), if only I had more support. (join our sacred group on Facebook and you will receive plenty of support there)
Why now? The numbers, 2017 add up to the number 10. This beautiful number represents completion with the '0' and new beginnings with the '1'. In other words, as the past year came into its completion (you may now breathe a huge sigh of relief), it is time to start fresh.
Even if that means you reinvent yourself. Isn't that evolving is all about? Not necessarily reinventing one's self, but coming back to your truest self. It is more imperative than ever to listen to the whisperings of your heart and follow its lead. It is time to stop listening to the dramas that society creates through the fear that ego is spoon feeding all. It is time to take that blessed breath, close your eyes and use this Askfirmation:
Why is it so easy for me to live the life of my dreams?
Then allow the angels to answer and show you how to get there. It's up to you to take that first step and the one after that and the one after that. It is time to break the chains that have held you back, whether they be those good intentions that folks reason with you on the whys you shouldn't do something or those ahem, blessed 'if onlys'. I speak from experience so listen carefully:
IF something doesn't get you juiced up and you are frustrated. LOOK INTO SOMETHING NEW NOW! Why? Because the angels hear your frustration and IF you don't take that step, no matter how small that step may be, they will end it for you. They only wish what is best for you and and will make 'it' end whether it is a job, living situation, relationship, etc. For that is what you ultimately yearn for. Remember, their only mission in your life is to help you live life on your terms. IF you are conforming to others and not happy in the process, they listen and heed your energy. While you may not cognitively concur that you asked for something to end, trust me that in a year's time you will be grateful it did; only IF you don't wallow (it's okay for a day or two) but then take those steps to move forward.
Here are some ways to help keep you focused with your soul's energy:
* Spend time in meditation.
* Spend time in automatic writing. You may not get discernible answers immediately, but with practice you shall.
* Take a candle, of course I prefer one of mine ;), but no matter, take an unused candle. Wrap your hands around it and set your intention. AS BIG AS YOU DESIRE. Light it daily until gone. By focusing on your intentions daily, you are gently nudged to keep going. You may have chance meetings. You may have a call from a dear friend who has the answer. You may...
This IS your year to shine brighter than ever. The world needs you as you, not me. Not your great Aunt Gertrude, not even Buddha. YOU and only YOU.
I wish you success beyond your imagination.
I wish you love that curls your toes and lights up the sky.
I wish you happiness that is contagious.
I wish this and much more, now and always.
The Newest of Beginnings December 29 2016
Yesterday, December 28, 2016, marked the last new moon of this year. It falls under the zodiac sign of Capricorn.
This brilliant new moon holds within it some of the highest octane energies. Many are sharing feelings of itchiness (literally and the proverbial 'I'm itching to go do something/anything!). Feelings of being antsy. Feelings of revving up before the start of a race. While we know life is not a race by any means, it is that sense that something BIG and magical is about to unfold.
You're right. It is.
This last moon, as I mentioned, falls under the auspices of Capricorn's energy. What a PERFECT time to write down your ambitions, no matter how lofty they may seem. What a perfect time to list your goals for the coming year and beyond. What a perfect time to dream and dream BIG. We'll be exploring the energy of the moon more each month as it hits certain zeniths. As I'm learning (yes the everlasting student) and chatting with Auriel and the rest of The Gang, each moon cycle while repetitive, hold a variety of particular energies and when we harness them more consciously we can jump start our life in magical and angelic ways.
While I zonked out last night and did not do any moon ritual, keep in mind the energy of any moon phase is strongest at that night, but holds its energies for three days prior and after the event. So I shall write my list today and set it aglow in our fire pit. This will set my intentions firmly and allow the angels to intervene to guide and most likely wing slap me to do a new project and how to let it unfold.
You see, 2017 is bringing with it energies of karmic proportions; you reap what you sow. You manifest what you dwell upon. All those things you have been thinking about, dreaming about and stewing about have a great opportunity to manifest in the coming months. As I write this, those blessed angel tears are manifesting as a confirmation of truth of what I write.
There is truth to that old saying; 'Be careful what you wish for' Be every diligent on your thoughts and intentions. IF something feels forced at any level, it simply is not for you.
Remember, all wish love, abundance, health, joy, ease and more. Isn't it time you received all of that on YOUR terms?
Write down that list of desires and dreams. Burn it so it gets released to the angels. Now wait for inspirational ideas of how to achieve exactly what you want and how you want it.
Remember, if still confused, that's why I'm here. I'm here to help via readings and private sessions.
Here's to a magnificent 2017!
Peace July 05 2016 2 Comments
When signs come in, signs come in!
I'm sitting in 'my outdoor office' - aka the screened in porch.
A family of Mockingbirds have nested in a pine tree just off the deck. I've witnessed the male and female come and go for weeks; however the nest is up just high enough that I could tell if eggs were present or not.
Those babies have hatched and thanks to their parents tireless efforts, they are fed literally all day long! Each parent comes in, the babies cry out, fill their adorable beaks and the parent leaves.
You would think by now the parents would be used to seeing me; hanging out laundry, going to and fro, but noooooo.... They will sit on my deck railing and watch. They sit on our shed and watch. IF I dare get too close (aka hanging laundry) I get yelled at.
The parents are working as a team. What a lesson! Neither one is pulling more weight than the other. They will sit on various structures in the yard; shed, railing, porch swings, neighbor's shed, etc. and talk. Yes really. One tweets out, the other responds. If a storm comes in, one sits on the nest while the other is close by.
What a lesson for us. Working together for a united goal. Why do so many feel they are an island onto themselves with no support? Why do we allow ourselves to drift so far out that it seems, repeats SEEMS impossible to tether back in? Bottom line; why do we self-sabotage?
Easy, we don't feel we deserve what we desire.
Just stop it!
You DO deserve all. While you may feel you are out to sea all by your lonesome, you're not. Just ask. Pop a note to the angels . Remember, it is not humanly monitored, so if you get a response, please let me know!
Join my Facebook group, Angel Chatter. If you are already a member, start chatting!
Start meditating daily. Does this require an assigned time and have you doing all sorts of spiritual stuff? No. I meditate daily while walking Gabi. I poise a question to the angels just as we leave and let it go. I'm constantly surprised and amazed at what catches my attention on these walks. Don't have a dog? No problem, you can still use this philosophy. Works for me every time.
I look forward to hearing from and wish you a message filled day!

New Portal Opening... July 02 2016
July 4th is just a few short days away. It also is the night of a New Moon. How fantastic is this?! If you remember, last month the Full Moon was in alignment with the Summer Solstice. This month, the moon's cycle is in alignment with a portal of energy heralding in NEW. A Day of Independence to be sure.
Who says energy isn't afoot?
Who says doors, gates, pigeon holes aren't opening for all to step through and shine brighter? It's true, it's all happening. This of course completely annoys the lower energies who are doing their best work (or so they think) to keep us all 'fat and stupid'. Not to dwell on their energies, but here are some things that may arise courtesy of your local lower energy:
* lack of sleep or too much
* feelings of insecurity, self worth plunging downward
* eating without thought contributing to the foggy brain, lethargy and entering the 'fat and stupid' arena.
Now let's flip this energy to benefit you: Stand true to you. Be a bit more mindful of what you are eating. Honor your body's needs. It's all part of the program, but bottom line, do not give in to those energies; that's exactly what they want you to do; give up.
Spend a bit of time outdoors. Reconnect with nature and all she offers whether it is a ferocious storm like the kinds we've had hit our island lately. How cool is this though, as the storm raged yesterday, and I do mean rage, my neighbor was sitting outside underneath his carport enjoying the entire show. Smartest move in the world? Perhaps not, but he was reveling in the energy. I on the other hand stayed safely inside with Gabi and enjoyed the lightning show. Today we've already taken a beautiful walk before the sun intensifies and saw many happy flowers. Oh, almost forgot to share that since I've been grounding more and remembering to stay ever present, I get to witness two nests in our yard that now have beautiful babies chirping the day away.
Spend time just for you. Whether it is in meditation, bike riding, journaling, etc. Something to allow you to be present which then helps you to connect back to you. These acts help to quiet the mind (ego) so you may settle more in your heart and see the underlying truth of all.
Between now and the 7th, write down some things you would like to switch up and become 'new' again. Whether it is stepping more into your power, latching onto your dreams with both wings and committing to never letting go again. You deserve your dreams to manifest and now is the time.
Will it be easy? Perhaps. Perhaps not. Some, most actually, is up to you and how your mindset is and how proactive you are. Remember you are human and life is about having those blasted (or is it blessed?) life adventures so we all can grow and become more empowered. It's up to us how we act and react to each one individually. Not backing down, but perhaps explaining better to allow more to understand where we come from.
Wrapping all this up; Welcome to YOUR Independence Day! Welcome back to you! Welcome to the brightest and most beautiful life ever.
You so deserve this.
Could this be your 'Once In a Lifetime Event?' June 19 2016
Tomorrow, Monday, June 20, 2016 marks this year's Summer Solstice. Did you also know it is the night of the full moon?
The last time this occurred I believe was in 1967. For some of us, we are blessed to have it happen twice! The next one is not until 2097 ... so indeed this is the last time for most.
What does this mean for us energetically?
How so? The sun is very masculine in its energy; fire, hot, intense, receiving. Think about it, have you ever used or heard the phrase, 'The sun is draining me today?' Receiving; it takes back. While the moon is very feminine in its energy; soft, illuminating, giving. One of the more common phrases associated with the moon tends to be 'Wow! I couldn't sleep at all, the moon kept me up!' It gives. It helps to illuminate your path - Thank you Archangel Auriel.
The summer solstice, as you most likely know is the longest day of the year. The sun shines the brightest and the longest. To balance this act, the full moon is also the strongest, the brightest at this time.
Therefore, this once in a lifetime event is the perfect day, to focus on balance. Creating more balance in your world. Perhaps even going so far as to garner insights on creating your heaven on earth reality.
I strongly suggest you meditate today on your desires (don't forget to call on Archangel Michael first for that added protection). Ask and be honestly open to receive the answers (some may not be the ones you desire or think you will get). Are you pipe dreaming (pie in the sky kind of mentality of wishing, but not being proactive?) or is this truly your mission, your passion, your destiny and you find yourself doing something regularly towards that goal?
Start with a yes or no question and build from there. As you get more comfortable with each answer's truth, build upon it and ask another and another and another. As you get more proficient, you may then ask more in depth questions that will allow the angels to offer more details, etc. You are the most important person in your universe; therefore, no matter how long your meditation takes, you deserve that time out for you. No fair asking questions about a loved one unless they directly affect your day to day living. This is situation all about you.
Chat with Auriel to help more brightly illuminate your chosen soul's path. Ask her to shine brighter the folks that are of your tribe whether they be your cheerleading squad or mentors, or ....
I would also gather all sacred objects right now and put them in the energy of this day. Outside if possible. I've already gathered all of my crystals and honestly, they are getting giddy as they feel the energy building, this energy of balance of the feminine and masculine.
Such a beautiful gift at this moment when all seems to be going topsy turvy in the world. What a gift to take time out for you and set your intentions strong by getting clarity with the help of the angels, of course.
Let me know how your meditation goes!
It's Time... for a bit of R&R May 27 2016
Okay, I get it, I'm not the best blogger in the universe. I can be erratic in posting. It's not that I don't care, but like you, my life can be over the top busy. We just finished a run of three expos back to back. WHEW! We really enjoy the shows; I get to see you, some new and some not so new Chatterers. Help to empower others through lectures and private readings.
