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?
What is your dream? March 20 2018
Who hasn't had one while sleeping?
Those aren't the kind I'm talking about today. The dreams I'm talking about are those that can keep you up at night. Those dreams that can have you smile just thinking about it. Those dreams that can have you closing your eyes and sighing.
How it Started
As many of you know, I grew up on the Eastern Shore. Lower Delaware to be exact. I loved the peace, the slow pace and of course the pristine beaches. In fact we started our living experience on the beach as our home wasn't ready inland. My parents took the road less traveled and we lived at the beach for five months. During the school year, we drove 30+ miles one way to get to school and the 30+ miles return home. I spent the afternoons at our local library while my dad finished his job and picked me up. We talked and sang the way home.
It was magical beyond magical.
We dried out pinecones during the winter months to make a Christmas wreath that graced our front door during the holidays for years.
We walked the beaches off season.
We ventured down to the boardwalk after the storm had passed to witness the fury of the waves.
We loved it and I certainly held it close to my heart for decades and in many ways still do as I am getting teary just remembering those five little months.
The Dream Becomes a Reality
Fast forward many years. I graduated high school; went to college for court reporting (shocker I know if you didn't already know this), moved away from my parent's home, got married, moved again, had children.
Well you get the drift.
We were living in Massachusetts at the time, but the Cape wasn't good enough for us! Noooooo, we had to drive 9+ hours south to go to the Eastern Shore Beaches! It was all an adventure while we visited family, relaxed on the beach and enjoyed crab feasts to the fullest.
We wanted to have a piece of the pie.
Within a few years, we were blessed to find the perfect place for us. It was in the old part of town which allowed our children to be 'big people' and walk into town to get milk or other sundries on a whim. They loved their independence and once again we loved the easier pace.
We spent many a summer there. Our children grew and obtained summer jobs. They moved on, but still came back for long or short visits. It was home away from home.
We eventually moved full time to the island of Chincoteague. It became our true refuge from the world as we pulled back and re-evaluated what we wanted from this thing called life. We pampered our home; installing new windows, doors, hardware, painted and I immersed myself in all things Angel Chatter and the gardens. We lived there; my husband, Gabi and the two small lions (aka cats) for four years.
Dreams Can Change
We moved off island about 1.5 years ago. We love the New Digs; it's close to nature. This allows Gabi and me to go swamping and wandering in the woods near the river whenever we desire which is almost daily.
The area we now live is congested; no denying that, but where we actually live offers great solace, creativity and expansion. All who enter our home comment on it. We love it.
As we continued to venture to the island, it was becoming a chore. The connection that drove us there was wilting. Times are changing and we aren't crazy about the direction of how it all feels any more.
The decision came to pull out. We thought long and hard on it. Having moved quite a bit over our 30+ year marriage, we know that utopia is where you make it; and this wasn't ours any more. It was time to practice what we preach and bring more balance into our life by having only one living space. As we drove down last week in separate cars to the place that I called home for close to 50 years now felt indifferent to me.
We made plans with a realtor. We boxed up the treasures that are to stay with us. We filled two cars to the brim with more to get at a later date. We cried a bit reminiscing at the amazing memories shared in this house (notice I am no longer calling it home). Memories are always close by; in your heart. We know this. We have cards sent to us by friends and family who stayed with us, or without us, over the years. Those we will take to continue to remember. I dug up plants that wanted to stay with me and are already safely planted in the ground across The Bay.
It did not escape either of us that this weekend happened over the New Moon just past. I did a new moon ritual on Saturday night and chatted away with Auriel, the Lunar Angel. I shared what I know and asked for her to better illuminate the right path for not only me, Angel Chatter, my family, but all who read this.
The New is Ushering In
What is in store next? Who knows. What we do know is that it was time to move off island. What we do know is that love is where you plant yourself. What we do know is there is a crispness in the air and once again we have taken a Leap knowing The Gang is catching us before we fall as we say YES to us and what we are here to do.
This goes for you as well. It's time to take a Leap of Faith. It's time to say YES to you.
Major Moon Event is Coming, Are you Ready? January 24 2018 2 Comments
We are one week away from the one of the biggest moon events in over 150 years. Yes, really. It's been over 150 years since all of this great movement has melded together. What am I talking about? On January 31, 2018 we will experience a:
Wrapped up in the juiciness of a Full Moon
Allow me a brief definition of each of these magnificent events. A Blue Moon occurs when there is a second full moon in the same calendar month. Our first was on January 1, 2018. The Super Moon occurs when the moon is closer to Earth than normal. A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the Earth and the moon takes on an umber hue; this can only happen when the sun, the moon and the earth are in perfect alignment. A full moon? Its full glory can be shared; all of it is illuminated and if we use the light, it can help us to illuminate our correct path(s).
Auriel, The Lunar Angel, is having a blast with so much energy showcasing her energy and love. This is a true POWER PUNCH of energy and it's upon us now. With this kind of energy melding together, only leads to apple carts being overturned in the figurative sense. Therefore, you will, or are already, a bit more emotional than normal and there's more to it than that. Let's go.
2018 = The Year of Love
This is hopefully not the first time you've read this from me, nor shall I think the last. As 2017, The Year of Transparency, was coming to an end, the mirror was turned on us. We were given the opportunity to be more transparent with ourselves. Who are we? What do we desire?
The tail end of 2017's energy is now melding with 2018's energy. This means the time is ripe to BE gentle on yourself. We can do that and so much more thanks to the event that is beckoning us to do just that.
This is not a time to push forward because you have to or are suppose to. In fact, I've given up my beloved yoga class more than once in lieu of sitting in a nice hot bubble bath. In other words, this is not your invitation to enter a Coach Potato Contest, but rather to find another activity that helps you to refuel.
What can I do?
So glad you asked. This energy is offering a major opening, a chance to go within and ask some of those soul searching questions.
We are asked once again to re-evaluate.
- Re-evaluate what we are doing
- Re-evaluate how we are doing it
- Re-evaluate who is in our tribe
- Our Inner circle from friends
- Our Colleagues
- Our Business associates
- Re-evaluate life
It is when we take those Re-evaluation moments that break throughs can not only happen, but DO happen. Is it easy? If I'm honest, most likely not, but oh the relief and power that comes with making a few changes!
Some symptoms as they connect to the moon and her energies
Many, me included are shifting. There appears to be very little gray area in the symptoms, although there always seem to be some that don't feel a thing. Here goes:
- Food. You are now either a bottomless pit and cannot get enough food in OR seem to not care whether you eat or not. There is a 'weird' hiccup with this; many are not eating much more than fruit in the morning, but come late afternoon/evening - 'what's to eat?' I asked Auriel as to the whys and she responded that the lighter fare in the morning hours help to open up to greater insights. The heavier food later not only helps to ground, but to fuel the seeds that are being planted for your future.
- Sleep. Dreams are more common. Pay attention even if they seem insignificant. Sleep patterns are or seem to be off as well. Try to stick to a routine, no matter what. You'll thank me later.
- Emotions. Pretty much all over the map. To be expected as much is surfacing and ready to be loved more into submission.
So many are struggling in a variety of ways at the moment. Some acts of despair have resulted in over ten school shootings since January! Some cries of help resulted from a trusted relationship ending. Some are more gentle and are hopefully getting the message to its receiver with greater clarity.
This includes you. Warning signs are always given when a personal event/shift is upon us. Always. However we tend to overlook them; they aren't pleasant let's face it. We claim to be too busy to focus on that. We play Scarlett and 'worry about it tomorrow.' and you're right, tomorrow never quite makes it to today.
Today is the day. Take about one hour of your time. Yes I know you're busy, just as I am busy. Go to a new locale; your local library, coffee/tea shop, nature. Someplace where you can dis-engage and listen.
Just yesterday I went to a Salt Spa with the full intention to leave my phone alone. this was my disengaging time! In fact it was left it in the spa locker. I settled in to the warmth and soft energy of salt surrounding me. I wasn't settled for more then ten minutes when they started talking and talking LOUDLY.
Auriel, The Lunar Angel, came in fast and furious as it was apparently time to shift within and prepare for the new for us all.
'You need your phone to take dictation. We've a new project for you.'
Is there NO rest for the weary? This was my first response. Apparently not. I listened and as usual they started in. I quickly hit the Pause Button and shuffled back to the locker room and grabbed my phone and shuffled back. For the next 45 minutes I wrote on my phone. What's it about? Honestly can't share yet for it is certainly in the incubation stage. However I will share it it BIGGER than The Book and The Course... it's that deep and powerful and loving.
Just do it
Bottom line, I listened and am also re-evaluating. I will continue to do what I do, but now taking it deeper for it's time for all of us to shine. Me included. With each level we enter, we are asked to BE. Be more us. BE more present. BE more LOVE. With each blossoming we push forward in our gentleness and BE stronger, more empowered. Why? Because we are BEcoming LOVE.
Enjoy this fantastic moon energy that is upon us, why fight it? Why not go with the flow? Go to that new locale, with a pad of paper or notebook. Settle in and get ready for some very juicy ideas. Will the change be easy? Can't answer that - it all depends on you and your willingness to shine.
New Moon and Her Energies for November, 2017 November 17 2017Tap into the New Moon's Energies along with Auriel and Chamuel to allow love of self to come forward and prepare for the NEW.
Oh those numbers.
Those magical numbers that are in our face every single day constantly offer insights and tidbits into the various ways we can BE and what can be in store for us all.
The upcoming Gateway is no exception.
November is the 11th month and on the 11th day a doorway is once more opening for those ready to step more into their Mastery of BEing.
There is no end to this, ahem, race. There is no gold medal to get there first. Therefore take your time and enjoy the ride.
The Gateway is a powerful opportunity to sit in reflection and meditate while focusing on the energies of LOVE.
Start with LOVE of self. Chat with Chamuel, the Angel of Self Love, to pry open your heart allowing LOVE to enter. It is through loving self more that more of what is desired is seen and embraced by each of you reading this.
What we desire? Yes.
Perhaps a romantic relationship.
Perhaps financial freedom.
Perhaps great ease of health to allow more physical activity.
As the saying goes, it does start within. Remember, nobody can love you more than you love yourself; including the universe. That is not to say it is not presented and offered on a daily basis, but if you are not feeling worthy to receive it, you will push it away. It gets pushed away via self sabotage, degrading self talk, anger and more. Oh the excuses are freely offered as to the why it cannot happen.
I will continue to remind you until the day I drop dead that
You Are Worthy of ALL You Desire
Sit with that little ol' sentence until you feel a shift within. It may take a moment or two. They are not asking you to hear the choir of angels singing your praises, but just enough of a shift that it makes you smile. This is the first step of knowing that you are indeed worthy. The first step towards manifesting what is desired and no longer settling.
I'm lighting a Chamuel Candle in honor of YOU. That is how committed I am to helping to inspire and empower YOU. Sit with the picture below and feel its energy coming to you. Allow the LOVE to permeate into every cell within.
You Are Loved
Focus on the Healing, not the Act November 09 2017 1 Comment
Healing. All yearn for it, but ... do we really?
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!
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.
When a statue talks to you...are you crazy or... May 05 2017
This guy... what a boss! Never let anyone tell you inanimate objects, especially sacred ones, don't have an opinion.
Don't believe me?
We were living in Massachusetts and a local store was going out of business. I had purchased a few sundry things there previously and simply loved the energy and her entire line of products. Everything was Asian, ancient and had an energy of being sacred behind it. A truly magical store and one I regret not seeing flourish.
Off I went to wander and explore; not intending to purchase a thing. It was more of a scouting expedition.
As I was meandering around the store, the statue below started yakking at me and yakking LOUDLY. It wanted to come home with me. I try, repeat try to be of the mindset that everything has a spot or a 'home' before purchasing especially one of this stature and energetic presence. I couldn't think of one right away, so I walked out. Yes I walked out initially without the statue.
BEFORE I got home, I thought of a great in the family room. That was an ideal spot! (or so I thought)
Turn around I did...
I entered the store and approached the statue. I swear it smiled at me! Yes, all these years later I still remember the event.
I purchased it and gently placed it in the back seat of the car and began driving home.
'By the way, I don't wish to be placed where you think. I want to go on the mantle.'
WHAT? Did that thing in the back seat just start talking to me?
'Yes, I did and I am going on the mantle.'
I now drop my mouth and start literally arguing with an inanimate object that is lying on the backset of my car.
'No, the mantle isn't wide enough for you.'
'I'm going on the mantle so I can bless all who enter.'
'Nice idea, but it's too narrow.'
'I'm going on the mantle.'
And this continued for the eight miles left of our journey home.
I placed it where I thought it ought to go. It didn't look right.
Where did it end up?
The mantle. It looked perfect there. Everybody loved it there and yes, it did indeed bless all who entered.
After we moved from that home, it then wished to be placed on top of a particular cabinet. It's a rather small cabinet and always finds a small wall to be up against. Buddha LOVES this set up. It/He LOVES the crystal it holds. It/He LOVES the candle holder in front.
When we moved from that house, much went into storage, including Buddha, cabinet and all. I have no idea who he argued with in the four years it was in storage, but that is their problem, not mine. We moved into our New Digs and once more a small wall was found for the small cabinet along with the crystal and candle and of course Buddha.
Peace and blessings reign once more and as the saying goes:
All is right with the world.
The Art of Allowing May 04 2017 1 Comment
The very word allowing is rather empowering as I recently experienced.
You know the dance; having to do so much on your own and if somebody offers to help you find yourself going in behind them to 'fix it'.
yeaaahhh... me too.
My AHA Event happened a couple of months ago while in Charlotte, NC for the SHIFT Conference. This was the first show that Honey Guy wasn't able to be with me for not only the physical love support but all the Sherpa Duties he carries so well. I had three lovely goddesses all ready to go on the day of, unfortunately all were occupied at check in and unload time for me.
I had the entire day ahead of me, so there was no rushing involved... really! I was being slow and methodical, just like the turtle.
As I was unpacking the car, a young man goes by and says he is a volunteer and can he help me.
'No, I've got it, but thanks!' With a big smile on my face.
'You are a strong woman who isn't used to help. Will you allow me to help you?'
BAM, I did an immediate 180 and said YES, I will allow you to help me. Help he did for the next three hours.
Allow. So very powerful. For the remainder of the weekend every time I saw him, I pointed him out and shared the story ending with 'I allowed him to help me!' I savored that energy and you know what? It was more powerful and poignant than ever. I relaxed. I let go of the reigns and allowed assistance in with a BIGGER smile and open heart.
What will you allow in your life today? While we are fully aware of lower energies, let's focus on the GREAT energies that are also afoot and allow them to enter into your world to assist, expand, explore, support, comfort, and even periodically wing slap. You can take some weight off your shoulders.
Not all assistance comes from The Gang. Many are disguised as a human as I now fully embrace.
Moon River and all it portends... April 26 2017
I was VERY restless last night. The song, Moon River kept playing in my head...
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waitin' 'round the bend
My huckleberry friend, moon river, and me
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' your way
The signs we get.... April 20 2017 3 Comments
I was blessed to have three of my grandparents live well into their nineties. Each one of the was incredible in their own right. I loved them all dearly.
As an example, Grandpa would have us out watching the ants play baseball, watching submarine races and keep us enthralled with stories of life in the early times in New York City.
Grandma, his wife, was the spitfire; small but mighty and very cognizant until the very end. She was the cog in the family, always there with great hugs, laughter and tidbits of wisdom, when you were ready to listen.
My other Grandma, Mary, is the one I wish to share about today. The last months of her life were confusing. Without drudging up family drama, nobody is quite sure of her last days other than she had a roof over her head, plenty of food, etc. She was taken care of, but we are also fairly certain there was 'mischief' afoot; that's me being nice about her care giver.
I was her first grandchild and the only for over seven years. We built a bond that was unbreakable that lasted a lifetime and now apparently beyond...
Grandma died many years ago and as with the passing or skipping over of our loved ones, we mourned. We cried. We laughed. We questioned. She skipped over in the month of June and by September, she began leaving signs for us.
The first gift was found in the center of our upstairs hallway. Right smack dab in the center of the hall. The hall we all traversed on a regular basis going to and fro to bed. On the day in question, I was walking from the office to our bedroom and lo and behold there was a very small Mary Medallion (one of the blue ones). I quickly said 'Hi Grandma' and put it in a chest she had given me from Poland to keep it safe.
Second gift; I shared the story with my mom a few months later when she was visiting and went to show her. The Mary Medallion had reproduced! There were now TWO medallions, but this one was the solid silver one in the photo. Before you question, the chest is rather empty with the exception of gifts from her.
Third gift; I have a Kwan Yin statue on my nightstand. Over one year after the second gift, I found a Mary Medallion was now safely nestled in Kwan Yin's hand! This is the second blue one.
Fourth gift; fast forward three or four years. We had just moved into our New Digs. We had been able to put much of the house in order and were now in the Lower Level (aka finished basement) and putting away all things Angel Chatter. My husband and I were chatting away about the house that was quickly becoming our home, our dreams of the future and just general talk. He became very quiet. As I glanced across the room to him, he was looking at something in his hand.
'I just found a Mary Medallion on the rug. It wasn't there before.'
'Did you say HI to Grandma?'
This is the fourth medallion in my hand - the very opaque one. I figure she wished to see our new home and make sure once again all was well in our world.
Fifth gift; Mom has now found one in the middle of their bed AFTER she made it!
You see, our loved ones often visit us. All of us. Sometimes they leave a token of their love; the Mary Medallion as an example. Some leave an aroma in their wake that we associate with them. Some may allow you to feel their presence in the form of a hug, a thought, a gentle breeze or a song. Sometimes we are trying so desperately to hear from them, we inadvertently don't allow these gifts to come forward in our consciousness.
Relax! Allow yourself to receive these messages. They will come in a variety of ways and each one is meant to catch your attention. They are only a whisper away.
Have you had a visit? I would love to hear about it below! You can always chat with Zadkiel to help clear the way a bit better for you to better see, feel, hear, know of their visits.
Guess what? I do NOT smudge! April 11 2017 3 Comments
I do not smudge at all any more. I use to and did for years...until we moved to Baltimore.
Here's the story:
We moved into a 'new' home in the Baltimore area. It was gorgeous. It was nestled in a grove of trees in a very small and homey neighborhood. We were renting, being new to the entire area, we weren't sure where we wished to plop permanently (as you will read, it's a GREAT thing we rented). As a welcome gift, our landlord left us not only a bottle of wine but a rather large smudge stick! Did she know me or what?
Typically, I would have jumped right in to smudge the entire house. The Gang, however, kept me busy doing MANY things; unpacking, getting settled and more. It was months and months before that smudge stick got used.
When I did finally get around to smudging, I followed all the 'rules of engagement':
- Started on the top floor
- Started on the top floor in far left corner
- Worked counter clockwise
- Took my time and lingered when necessary
- Repeated on the next two lower levels (basements count too whether they are finished or not!)
Funny thing happened afterwards. While the house felt GREAT for a day or so, it felt terrible within four days. Yes really terrible.
I let the energy settle and observed.
At that time a 'stray dog' (his term, not ours) came to live with us... a friend of one of our daughters who was very troubled. While his bedroom was in the basement (very nicely furnished by the way), he would report hearing voices and footsteps regularly going past his bedroom door.
Even the cats, Linus and Schroeder, would only go downstairs to use their bathroom and scoot back upstairs as quickly as their cute little bodies would carry them.
I saged again and this time really focused on the basement/lower level.
It got worse. Again. Voices increased, footsteps louder and now it was affecting the entire household. Everyone was getting agitated.
Focusing on anything was next to impossible.
This cycle continued a few more rounds; just had to be sure and up until this adventure, saging had always worked!
Turns out the land was cursed. In fact, if you notice I put the term 'new' in quotes at the top of this post. This is because the first house was built in the 1980s and had burned to the ground. The owner rebuilt it. While is was gorgeous and flowed beautifully, the enery was off. Very off. It was cursed via Native Americans (not sure what tribe, didn't ask). You see, Native Americans hold saging sacred and it enhances their energy and connection to the beyond. So every time I saged, I was literally empowering them!
I saged no more. We left that house within a few months of the AHA and never looked back.
NOW I only use my Sacred Mister, Clearing. This is infused with not only the amethyst crystal, but Archangel Zadkiel's energy which is aligned with the Violet Flame. All transmutative energies. Taking that kaka and putting it back to its original state of purity. Nobody gets empowered in a not so nice way with this baby and ALL feel better! Plug for a product? Sure, but as you hopefully know by now, I believe in the power of each product I create and use them all myself. In fact I'm often their guinea pig!
Please think about how the saging affects you before and afterwards; even a few days or weeks afterwards. Does it still feel yummy? If it does, you are safe. If you feel any of the symptoms above, please discontinue.
As always, I look forward to reading your comments below!
Much love and GREAT clearing!
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.
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 other ways do you already practice mindfulness?
What other ways have intrigued you?
Share below in the comments. I would love to hear from you.
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.
The Color of Love January 26 2017
I was out with Gabi today, you know my living muppet yogi dog, and a thought popped in my head as we passed yet another potential fan club member for Gabi. Are dogs really color blind? Turns out they are NOT (I did a tiny bit of research on our arrival home). They DO see a variety of colors, but akin to a person who is red-green color blind. Simply put dogs see orange, yellow, and green as yellow. Blue-green is seen as white and red looks as though it is brownish-black. That is starting to make my hair hurt, but bottom line, they see a lot more than gray tones.
I asked because, you see, Gabi LOVES everybody. Truly. I've never seen her growl at a person. Unless of course they are walking by and she's not out there to greet them. But I digress...
On every walk, she perks up the minute she see another human. Her tail wags. She begins to prance. She actually smiles in anticipation. She eagerly waits for the command from me or a greeting from them to perform her official hello which also includes massive leaning and if you're really lucky a slobbery kiss. She actually gets somewhat miffed when a person doesn't invite her over or worse yet; she is ignored.
It doesn't matter how old or how young. Although she does have a distinct fondness for children. It doesn't matter if they are purple, black, polka-dotted, yellow, white or striped. She truly adores and LOVES everyone.
What a novel idea. Love for what it is. Love no matter what. Love is not just skin deep. Love is real.
We could all learn something from that magical fur angel girl known as Gabi.
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.
