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.
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.

The Angels have the last word... February 06 2017 2 Comments
It's a GLORIOUS day here mid 60s and it's the beginning of February! What 'bright' groundhog said we're getting six more weeks of winter? Me thinks, or hopes at least, he's WRONG.
It's scheduled to rain tomorrow and Gabi and I needed to get out. Off we went into the woods to discover new trails and be adventurous. I called it 'Getting Lost In the Woods'... how right that ultimately was!
I decided to do some catching up with family.
Called mom... no answer
Called my sis...no answer
Called a good friend...no answer
Called one of my younguns...no answer
What gives?! Sandalphon quickly jumped in to tell me that today was for exploring and observing. One simply could not observe if 'one was chatting on the phone'
Well okay then...I guess.
Off we ventured, onward towards the river. We (more likely I was DIRECTED) to take a certain path; down to the biggish stream, cross (thankfully I have waterproof shoes) and to the left. VERY specific Sandalphon, VERY specific... It's a beautiful day and off Gabi and I went. She cavorted briefly with a new friend in the water and her friend's owners were in shock that Gabi is a very young eight years old. We quickly parted ways and did not see another soul for another two hours.
We hugged the river as you can see and then the path headed right. Okay I thought, we're heading back towards the main area.
Deeper and deeper into the woods the path took us. Only hearing the crunching of my feet and Gabi playing in the brush. Hark, do I hear children? We must be getting close!
Not only did their voices disappear, we heard nothing again for the longest time. It was a prime time to chat away with The Gang. Chat we did... where I wish to be, how are they orchestrating it all; support, new folks, etc. How am I to fulfill my mission, etc. It WAS quite the talk let me tell you.
As my handy dandy fit bit buzzed and congratulated me on taking 10,000 steps, we still had no end in sight. I knew Gabi was getting a bit weary (as was I). Within moments, VIOLA! Water! In she went and SMILED. Smiled I tell you! As I was figuring out how to get to the other side, for it looked vaguely familiar, I spied the rope bridge. The Rope Bridge! Yes, it really became that important and deserved to be capitalized for I knew where it was!
As we finally treaded on trails we knew and headed towards home, The Gang chuckled.
"See, we are never far. As your walks, trips, segues may seem off the beaten track, we always take care of you and set you straight. You will always be heading towards your goals, no matter what."
WOW. That's all I need to say....
Sometimes you just gotta... February 02 2017
As an Angel Goddess-preneur, it's often a one woman goddess show. YES, I have loads of folks helping in ALL sorts of ways, so this is in no way discounting their immense love, support and physical help. I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself.
The angels and I have a pact; guess it's the word of the week, and there is a list that is ginormously long of things I wish to do. I really won't bore you with all of those, but suffice it to say I keep myself pretty darn busy. I'll repeat; I know, I know, I put this pressure on myself and I'm usually the Chief Whip Cracker reminding me of what needs to get done like yesterday.
So today, I protested. Yes indeed I did. I broke my routine...kinda.
I still did The Dailies... the channeled messages so many of you look forward to (if you don't know what I'm chatting about, come find me on Facebook), had my morning cappuccino and the routine broke when I took a shower immediately following! Yes, this may be TMI, but I often get so caught up in writing, walking Gabi, etc. showers don't happen until later in the day.
I broke the routine and did errands! Heresy I tell you! Errands! You know one really needs to get out more often when errands are exciting! ;) Errand running I did with Gabi accompanying me as my trusty co-pilot. We arrived back home and decided I'm making one of my husband's favorite dinners tonight... SHHHH... roasted chicken, homemade cranberry sauce and homemade stuffing. He will be giddy.
After that, I still wanted to rebel. Off Gabi and I go on our walk and we tried a new path; going deep into the woods.
Gabi ventured further off trail than ever. She went swamping:
We laughed. Okay I laughed, she grinned:
We walked over five miles today and came home rejuvenated! I had set my intention with Sandalphon (Angel of Grounding) before we left home to better understand a new section he wished included in the Authorization Course for students. At best it had become a Hair Hurting Experience, but as we were out, he offered insights in ways that I finally 'got it'.
So sometimes, you just gotta go on a flyer, break your routines and have a bit of fun when it's not scheduled. My Act of Self Love today is complete. What did you do for you?
