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.
FIVE Things you can do to empower yourself spiritually February 02 2018
I am often asked how can I do this or that? The 'This' or 'That' implies to better embracing and owning one own’s spirituality.
It all starts with YOU.
It starts within.
It starts at the beginning.
Meditation doesn’t have to be an event that takes like FOREVA. An enlightening session can be as short as five minutes. It’s an easy practice to start, but can take a lifetime to master, but don’t let that hinder you! Meditation opens new horizons, instills stillness within, offers profound peace and leave.
It’s easy to start; call upon Archangel Michael, The Angel of Protection. As Big Mike enters the room, it may begin to feel a bit warmer; don’t be alarmed, it’s one of his signs. Having him to stand guard will you meditate helps to ascertain that all information you get during your meditation is clear and not muddled. This also helps the ego to go sit in the corner for a bit ... might as well give it the proverbial lollipop too.
Sit in a comfy place. Don't go into hyper drive of Am I doing this right? If you are comfy, that is all that matters. Seriously if you can't sit with feet firmly on the ground because you're more comfortable cross-legged, that is all you will think about. I want to cross my legs! or OOPS, I just crossed my legs, best put them flat on the floor. Just stop. BE comfy.
Now place your hands over your heart and listen to your heartbeat. This helps to slow your mind as well as offering you something to focus on. Your breath will naturally slow all resulting in you deepening you meditative state. Again, it doesn't matter which hand is on top.
Stay in this quiet moment that turns into moments. This connection helps you to connect with your heart; the birthplace of your soul. Once connected, allow yourself to remember this connection, this purity, this love. Revel in this moment. Embrace it.
This simple act begins to open doors and enhancing your spiritual side.
Step TwoGet outside. Take a walk on the wild side ... in nature!
Oh, leave that brilliant magical electronic device at home or in your pocket. NO walk will do you a bit of good if you are staring down at the screen. Besides, you might just trip over a tree root or something if you are too busy looking down.
I have gotten into the habit that whenever Gabi and I leave our home I present a situation that I would like clarity on. I start by asking Archangel Sandalphon as he oversees the Earthstar chakra and reminds me to BE more often which allows him and the other Gang Members to answer. My queries can run the gamut; something as inspiration for dinner to expanding on a new product/project idea to explaining something much deeper.
I then let go of that intention and allow to BEcome inspired.
We, Gabi and I, then have a blast as we go about our magical journey walks. Once we reach a certain spot in the woods, she is allowed off leash and free to romp and go swamping. This leaves me free to enjoy the moments with her. Experience that joy, silliness and BEing at peace.
Why at peace? I am centered; living through the energy of love and joy through Gabi. I am so focused on her that nothing else enters my mind at the moment. Those quite little moments of stillness open doors to answers. It’s in those moments my questions begin to unravel to allow answers to softly dance in. They dance in so softly that it is without a doubt a message from The Gang in response to my queries.
It’s feeling the ground beneath my feet that I become more centered, more grounded if you will. It’s feeling the sun’s warmth on my face that my heart lightens. At the moment we are in the midst of another Arctic blast and I can feel the chill course through my body waking up every cell. It’s glorious to feel alive! That essence only deepens my spiritual connection to the universe that surrounds us.
During our walks stillness creeps in. Life creeps in. Love creeps in. My connection to The Gang and God/Goddess strengthens and is fortified.
Give it a try.
Chose LOVE over FEAR
Unfortunately life does not always go according to plan. In fact, it rarely goes according to plan.
Every day is truly a new beginning. You can chose to dance in lower energies by whining, jumping in the unsavory, or by focusing on lack of whatever and wherever you feel lack in your life.
You can focus on Love. True, easier said than done… at times. However, no matter how low you feel life has become, there is always something there to be grateful for.
Here are some ‘normal’ ideas to whet your appetite and remind you how lovely your life really is.
- Love offered from another; social group, family member, friend
- A sunny day
- A home
- Shoes - one never has enough shoes!
- The ability to see what you already have and offer gratitude. Yep, snuck that one in there.
When we chose a higher vibration (Love), we automatically are choosing to see more of what we can have, BE, and do. Once seen, it’s hard to hide again. Once seen, it is heard. Once seen, it becomes easier to embrace and truly BE.
Choosing fear? Not so much. Let’s just say, you’ll get loads more of what you really don’t want. All the complaining the in world won’t change it. You must change from within and begin to see the beauty of life. The beauty? Only opens you to more of what spirit is offering you.
Chat with Jophiel. She is the Angel of Joy-Filled Power. She’ll be more than happy (pun intended) to put a smile on your face and remind you that you are your most powerful when in JOY.
This is not about taking the closest Zumba or kickboxing class. This is participating in a form of exercise that has a spiritual component such as Tai Chi or Yoga.
This is akin to walking outside and reconnecting with nature and all it offers regularly. However, most of yoga and Tai Chi classes are held inside and therefore one can’t use the excuse that it is cold or rainy in order to partake.
When beginning a more spiritually based form of exercise, one naturally slows down. It’s within that stillness that the heart speaks and speaks loudly. Ego is forced to sit in the corner with a lollipop. Why is that?
One simply cannot perform all those yoga poses with grace and ease! I’ve been known to fall over while attempting Crow. It wasn’t pretty, the class was concerned, but I just sat back and laughed. My worse fear was fulfilled; I fell.
Oh but the lesson! I got back up and am now slowly conquering Crow. One day I shall. In the meantime I am humbled and chuckle through the stumbling and teetering and who knows? Perhaps another fall awaits me.
I chat with Metatron on these days. He oversees the Soul Star chakra (about 6” above your head) and oversees your soul’s mission. I present to him a variety of things; how I wish to BE better is the most common theme. I ask that before class commences and by the time Savasana (corpse/relaxation pose) rolls around, I receive answers. My mind drifts. I allow myself to receive hearings from them. I gather to me insights and inspirations.
In one word? It’s magical.
Let’s face it, who doesn’t LOVE a good oreo cookie? (that’s my guilty dream of late). I don’t keep them in the house for I know once that bag is open, the bag magically becomes empty and they enter my belly. Not necessarily the best idea. Why do i do this and ignoring a non savory craving?
Because I value my body and what it does for me. I recognize that by eating a higher vibration of food, I am honoring me and my spiritual path. This is not to say I don’t have an oreo once in a while, but IF I do, it’s a small snack pack. Of course as time changes, so do my cravings. You know what? They all revolve around sugar. One thing I have learned that if I ‘suffer’ through a couple of days of No More, the cravings POOF vanish and I can go back to eating better for me with greater ease.
Think about it, what is your guilty pleasure? Switch out my current fave of Oreo to your choice. Indulge. Indulge deeply. How do you feel afterwards? If you are anything like me, not so great. Of course there is the initial high, but it quickly morphs into remorse, bloating, muddled thinking and more (we won’t go into ‘potty talk’).
Now think of the times you eat right for you. Your body felt energized. Ideas could come in fast and furious AND you had more than enough energy that allowed you to act upon them. You rarely got sick. You became excited with life and your connection to source was equally clearer.
Because you were fueling your body and therefore your soul. When you fuel at optimum levels, you can more clearly see, hear, know and sense wisdom from the other side. You are more at peace. You radiate an energy of love, BEing centered that has others wishing to know your secrets.
In other words, you can walk your talk with a genuine smile on your face.
It’s uncanny what our bodies tell us when we eat food that is not good for us. No, no, don’t be mistaken, I’m not going on a Thou Shall BEcome vegan or vegetarian or …. This is about eating what is right for you and only you. Bottom line, some folks need to stay a carnivore.
Gabriel is my go to in this arena. He is the Angel of Miracles and oversees the sacral chakra; the place of sensuality. He guides me to juicier and healthier foods and encourages new recipes to continue to expand my horizons, not my waistline.
These five seemingly insignificant steps can help in more ways than you may imagine. Are these the only things you can do? Of course not! I look forward to reading what other tricks you have tried successfully that have opened your spiritual horizons as you dance this thing called Life.

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

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.
Super New Moon ~ January 20, 2015 January 20 2015
Dearest Chatterers ~
Today marks the beginning of the rest of the year on so many levels. We will experience a Super New Moon today and the energies are without a doubt intense in that very expansive sort of way. Expansion can be daunting for so many and if you are feeling a bit off kilter and s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d, then please sit down, close your eyes and b-r-e-a-t-h-e.It can be that simple and within that simple act, profound insights can occur.
We had a day of pure sunshine today; temperatures higher than average and I took full advantage of it. Gabi, our fearless yogi dog, and I sat out on our deck. Me without a coat, and since she wears hers... well you know. After lunch, I continued to soak up the sun and the surrounding energy. Gabi then became my sentry and laid there as a sphinx guarding her territory.
I completely relaxed and felt my body sway in the pulsations offered, within each pulse another glimpse of the very near future was shared. Upon reflection there were probably about twenty or so 'glimpses'; a very quick slide show indeed! Ironically it never felt rushed. Each glimpse felt very settled, real and when I emerged, I truly expected to hear the great news from my honey. Or a phone call or...
I know what I saw was real. Just as your vision of your future can be. So here is your challenge:
Take ten minutes. Relax into a comfy chair, a beam of sunshine and allow yourself to be transported and experience how life is truly meant to be for you. Yes you - all the love, health, joy and yes even vast financial abundance is yours for the asking.
This is a bit of a nagging reminder, but there is still time to make your vision board for 2015. Have fun with it, enjoy your dreams taking flight. For it is time for you to soar like no other time.
