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.

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.
Who are Archangels Michael and Gabriel and how do they help you? January 17 2018
If you are interested in any things woo-woo and/or angels, odds are you know of or have at least heard of Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel. When I think about it, looking back they were probably first in line as part of my initiation of remembering.
Whenever I start introducing anyone to the angelic realm, Archangel Michael, or alias Big Mike, is always first. Why? He is the Angel of Protection. As a leader and teacher I want to be assured that you are protected as you delve deeper into your spiritual practice as you go higher.
Big Mike is one of the few angels mentioned in the bible. He oversees the solar plexus and throat chakra; our place of power and communication. How great is it that when he is by your side that communication becomes easier! When Michael begins to enter your life more consciously, your ride of empowerment is just beginning in earnest.
Michael is the patron saint of the police force in the United States. His color association is yellow and blue. What colors are the the United States police force?
You got it, yellow and blue. Somewhere, somehow, someone knew this and guessing had a deep connection with Archangel Michael and decided to bring that protective power forward. In fact, I’ve had clients share their stories that while in the courtroom they as well as others actually see him there! He’s just cool that way. As any self respecting angel has a tool, Michael is no different. Since he is THE protector, his tool of choice? A sword! He can and will cut through any crap in your life, stand guard (with a smile on his face) and do battle for you when needed.
As all names have a meaning, Michael is no different. His name is translated to mean, “Who Is As God.” What a beautiful reminder that can easily apply to you. YOU are a true reflection of God/Goddess. A beautiful being filled with love, light, joy, immense grace, with a bit of quirkiness thrown in for good measure. As a reflection of this energy, you have the ability to do all you desire. You know, those dreams that can keep you up at night, those dreams that feel real and leave you breathless due to all the beauty and joy it gives to you. Those are the kind of insights that the angels can sneak in to remind you of who you are and what you are meant to be doing. Michael holds one of the keys to help open those doors for you. His question to you is…. ‘Will you step through?’
I’ve had a personal encounter with each of the angels that I directly work with; therefore there is of course one for Big Mike:
It had been one crazy strand of a chaotic few weeks that actually spanned the entire spring season. It started with my dad having a massive heart attack - or the Day the Elephant Danced as he calls it. (It felt like an elephant was dancing on his chest). Dad not only survived, but is now thriving. I happened to be visiting them during this adventure; I naturally extended my visit to help be the comic relief and do what I do best; distract and comfort.
Then we had three back to back expos scattered around the region. While we came home in between each one to restock and slightly refuel, we became tired.
Our youngest then had elective surgery approximately one week after the last show. I trekked across The Chesapeake Bay (about a four hour journey) to be with her. If you have children and they have ever been operated on, you know how I felt. STRESSED! She came through it with flying colors and was released later that day. I then gathered our eldest and we headed to visit her; another hour away. We stayed for the weekend, made yummy food, nurtured, visited, and tried to relax. A few days later, my eldest and I drove back to her home for a Farmer's Market run and quick visit with her and her boyfriend.
I then left their home and headed back to my parents, another four hour trek, to retrieve my Yogi Dog, Gabi.
Tired yet? I was.
As I am driving along, Michael pops in to remind me to have him surround the car.
Shades of things to come?
All was going smoothly, little traffic, and familiar terrain. Gertrude, my handy dandy GPS System, then had me turn onto a road I was unfamiliar with. Since it had been a while since I traveled this particular route, I thought I had forgotten it and listened.
Ugh. The road quickly became barely a two lane road with NO berms/shoulder or dividing line. Oh, did I mention it was VERY curvy? By the time I came to the realization that this is NOT where I wanted to be, I figured, how bad could it get and trudged on.
How bad could it be? Silly question.
Did I mention it was curvy? I drove on, knuckles becoming white as my hands gripped the steering wheel.
I called on Big Mike, just to make sure he was around. I was getting scared and knowing that he was around helped to rest my mind… a little. I mean, I knew I was driving well, but those curves were not making me comfortable as I was unsure how others would handle them.
I drove below the speed limit, very unlike me, and see yet another curve up ahead. Before I could slow down more, a BIG truck is now headed directly for me. Okay it wasn’t an eighteen-wheeler, but I couldn’t see the driver, he/she was up that high. I pulled over as far as possible and was now driving partly on the grass. The truck still didn't pull more to their side and kept plowing ahead.
Before I knew it, I am pressing hard on the horn. How my hand got there still befuddles me. It was as if a hand had gently pried my hand from the steering wheel, placed it on the horn and pressed. Hard.
The truck then pulled more to their chosen side, I think slightly slowed down and passed me. I tell you, I think, I could have put my hand out and touched the truck as it passed. Yes it was that close.
I exhaled. Who knew I was holding my breath?! I look in the rearview mirror, the truck emitted no brake lights and simply kept moving forward.
Heart racing, glowing with sweat, I continuing driving white knuckled for the rest of that trek and practically kissed the ground when I arrived at my folks home.
It was beyond a nerve wracking experience and took hours to calm down.
OH! The next day after sharing this story with a friend, she promptly writes back that Big Mike popped into her office immediately after reading my story and says ‘Yep, I was there protecting her.’ He appeared to her as a flash of white light surrounded by electric blue.
Hopefully this story has proven to you that you don’t need or are required to do a specific ceremony to connect with him or any other angel. Seriously, if I had to stop what I was doing (driving safely) and kneel down, face South before he would listen? I’mmmm not so sure I’d be her right now.
Gabriel is no different in his accessibility to you and all things creative. Gabriel works with the sacral chakra the place of creativity, sexual, sensual and miracles. Before you skip this over by not thinking you aren’t creative, STOP! Every day you do something creative whether it be planning a menu, schedule shuffling, art, writing or problem solving. Each and every day we are tapping into this very juicy chakra.
Toot Toot! That is Gabriel tooting his horn with you in mind. True, a horn is often associated with Gabriel as he can also be called 'The Great Communicator’. He brings news of all kinds; the good, the bad, the ugly and the euphoric. He is the angel accredited with giving Mary the news of the impeding birth of her Son. Talk about euphoric, but what a ‘burden’ knowing what your son was to experience in his life. Gabriel’s horn can also offer the ‘all’s good to go’ sign. In fact, while at an expo, a new client came forward only because she heard Gabriel’s horn while standing at our booth and knew she would get great clarity from the angels through me. What a blessing indeed!
Gabriel also assists in awakening the senses. For example, think of one of the most decadent meals you’ve ever had. You felt the food swirl within your mouth; the textures, the spices. The food felt like it was literally exploding and made you salivate for more. THIS is the senses waking up and truly enjoying what life is offering you. The meal became a sensual experience, just as wearing a luxurious piece of clothing, just as smelling an aroma you adore.
Archangel Gabriel's Mandala
How about those doodles you absentmindedly draw when bored? What about how you decorate your home? What about...So the next time someone says you or they are not creative, just smile and shout out, ‘Au contraire!’ and give a wink to Gabriel for showing how creative you really are.
Gabriel assists in birth as well as death. It’s the Cycle/Circle of Life. He is especially helpful if the grieving process has become difficult; you can’t get past the death of a loved one. Whether it is mourning, blaming self for things said or not said, things done or not done. All those ‘what ifs’ that typically run amuck during this powerfully charged time. This can also include a beloved pet. Allow Gabriel to connect with you and remember the joyful moments of that one’s life and the reason that they were in it; no matter how short or long. If there is something that is still yearning to be said to them, Gabriel can and will assist getting your message delivered. Remember he carries a horn - it acts as a great megaphone.
Just like Michael’s name means Who is like God. Gabriel’s name translates to God is My Strength. What a beautiful reminder that you can build your strength with the assistance of Gabriel. Strength to go after your dreams. Strength to give birth to new ways of being. Strength to be different, and be you. Strength to not only shine, but to share your brilliance with the world.
Hopefully you are beginning to better understand how integrated Archangels Michael and Gabriel are in your lives already. Sometimes it is about connected dots and better understanding of who does what

Oracle Cards vs. Tarot Cards January 08 2018
What is the difference between Tarot Cards and Oracle Cards?
Tarot cards have been recognized since the 14th Century, but have actually been around much longer. In fact they were originally called Trionfi which is translated to trump. Trionfi was initially the playing card decks we've all known and loved since children.
It can be a case of the chicken or the egg? Did trionfi give birth to tarot or visa versa?
While they may have been used as playing cards then as well, seers would use them as a way to divine their and their client's futures. Through this methodology tarot was born. The original tarot, just like the current everyday deck, had four suits with 14 cards in each suit. Each suite numbered 1-10 with additional face cards (king, queen, jack and knight). However, over time the tarot deck morphed into a deck of over 78 cards with 22 cards per suit. As a sideline, there are stories and myths that tarot became a tool for messages to be relayed to another during times of religious persecution. Not only were they used to tell of the enemy's plan and/or location, but to deliver military instructions. In other words, there is still great mystery that surrounds the tarot and it may take only a few lessons to 'get', but a lifetime to master if one truly wishes to understand the messages they reveal and their energy. It is one worth following if you are called.
I am not a tarot expert and most likely will not be in this life. Through research and interviewing colleagues this is what I found. The major arcana represents major life change. Think of it as getting a bit of a wing slap - time to listen wisely. The minor arcana offers insights into the more detail of life. It's paying attention to the minor details that can add up to big changes.
It is believed that oracle cards debuted long after tarot existed. As mentioned above, tarot is thought to have been born in the 14th Century while oracle cards are given a nod in the 19th century. The term oracle stems from Greek mythology as one would speak to an oracle to divine guidance for any situation. This of course can get confusing. If the early Greeks used oracle cards, did they perhaps precede tarot? We may never know.
By sticking to the greek usage of the word, cards began to be used as oracles. Then morphing into special decks known as oracle cards. What is the reasoning behind the birth of oracle cards? Who knows why initially, but now one could make a case for ease. If you are a user of oracle cards, like me, you may have been drawn to them initially because of their ease of understanding. The message is written clearly on the card; no need to know suits, arcanas, etc.
Oracle cards gained momentum and popularity in France thanks to a fortuneteller named Madame Marie Lenormand. She designed her own deck and was of service to many of noble stature such as Tsar Alexander I and Napolean Bonaparte. Her gift empowered many and instilled expansion for more decks to be born. Upon Madame Marie's death in 1843, a birth of new oracle decks began. The most popular of that time is known as Petite Lenormand:
As you can perhaps see here, it's not a far jump from a tarot and playing card deck; the various suits, etc. Fast forward a little over 100 years and look how many versions of oracle decks that are now published! The many subjects include; angels, faeries, mermaids, unicorns and more. Oracle cards do not follow a strict guideline or look remotely similar from deck to deck; even the number of cards within each deck can vary. While a tarot deck includes 78 cards; with 22 major arcana and 56 minor arcana all divided up into four suits.
Another difference between tarot and oracle decks is the connotation of each card. Tarot has multiple meanings per card while oracle cards are much looser in all interpretations. Some oracle cards will offer 'upside down' definition, others will not. Unfortunately some folks, perhaps many, will think that oracle cards are fluff and for those that can't be bothered with learning tarot cards.
Balderdash. Oracle cards can be as powerful as tarot. It all depends on the deck. True, oracle cards tend to be lighter in energy, but do not mistake lightness for lightweight! There can and is great power within oracle decks. It all depends, like anything, the integrity and intention the author is putting into the project.
Which is best for you? Only you can answer that. Tarot, as many of you know, make my hair hurt. I appreciate their value and insights and have many friends/colleagues who use them and I don't hesitate to ask them for their intuitive guidance via their tarot deck. I just know tarot isn't for me.
I'm curious, what is your divination tool of choice?
I was nudged, wing slapped into submission if you will, to write the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck. It's because there are so many other decks that are out there that I balked and said 'we don't need another deck'. The Gang laughed. With their urging and insistence I finally sat down and took dictation (for that is what it felt like) for a solid two weeks. The end result was a deck of 44 cards, a guidebook with alternative interpretation for each card as well as information that is not typically found on each of the 14 angels that offer a combined balanced energy to empower and inspire the user.
This was my first out of the closet project. Stepping out in a larger way. Stepping out certainly in a more visible way; no more hiding at home! Why? It was time, just as it is now time for all of us to step out from behind whatever veil we've allowed to shield us. It is time to stand tall and proclamate who you are and what you are here to do. If you are not sure, it may be time to do some consulting of a treasured oracle deck!
I look forward to reading your comments below and feel free to share the blog!
The ick is having the last hurrah December 30 2017
We are in the tail end of 2017 and the Ick, aka Lower Energies, are attempting to have their last hurrah in keeping you in the middle of a funk, confused, drained basically dis-empowered.
They are doing their utmost to thwart you in your dreams. Feelings of unworthiness are rampant. Many have gotten the flu... of course it's a 'real' thing... but it drags you down lower, much lower. It can you pull into the true depths of your despair until you see no light of day.
Get the idea?
I won't continue down that imagery for you DO deserve better. You are prevailing. You are conquering your fears, one at a time. You are to bring out those figurative or literal champagne glasses and celebrate YOU.
One question... will you let the ick prevail or the light?
Remember, 2018 is the Year of Love. How can the ick win in such power?
2018 = The Year of Love, therefore Love IS The Answer! December 19 2017 1 CommentLove Is The Answer! True! Have you thought of loving yourself first? Here's why you really ought to...
THREE Super Moons in A ROW? December 13 2017
You read correctly; we have just experienced a super moon and have TWO more coming up consecutively.
Talk about power! Now you get to use this power to your advantage...
Without further adieu, here are the dates:
December 3, 2017
January 1, 2018
January 31, 2018
A super moon occurs at a time when it is the closest to the earth during its elliptical orbit. Since it is closer than usual, the moon may appear quite large as we gaze upon its beauty. This amazing phenomena happens with full as well as new moons. There is typically much more talk of the super moons when they are full as we can visually see it as opposed to the moon being dark during the new moon phase.
Each one of super moons listed above occurs during its full moon phase and promises to be quite the adventure! Because the last of the super moon also coincides with a lunar eclipse! But wait there's more! Because this is the second full moon within the same month the January 31 super moon/lunar eclipse is also a Blue Moon.
What does this mean for you?
Soooooo very much!
With Luna truly in her strongest energy portal on these dates, you are being given ample time to prepare for the new. Isn't it rather fantastical that the next one is on the first day for The Year of Love? I do. What a way to bring in the new year.
Start preparing now for how you would like 2018 to support you. Would you like more clients, customers, higher salary? Would you like a deeper love of self? Would you like to be honored for the divine soul that you are by others? New home? Car? The sky is truly the limit.
The key is the mix of what was just shared; loving self more. How can you start to put you first? This goes against many societal dogmas that one is being very selfish and naughty if they put themselves first.
As I have stated before, even the airlines agree with the mindset of take care of you first! (put on your air mask in case of emergency before helping another). Why? For when you are full, you can more joyously not only help others, but begin to soften and allow yourself to receive more of what is desired, no matter the category.
As we head into the last days of 2017 (Year of Transparency) you are being given the last hurrah to be truly honest with yourself.
- what do you desire?
- how do you wish to be seen?
For every desire, keep asking why for it helps you get to the root of well, why you desire 'it'. Is it for fame and fortune? Is it because you wish to share the love within you with another? Is it to be able to help more with the money you acquire? Is it...?
Hopefully you get the idea. This is a great journaling exercise and one that will not go to waste. I'll be using my Moon Ritual Box to hold those blessed desires and I won't take them out until January 31, 2018. After that, I'll head to our fire pit and release any angst I have regarding those desires to the angels. I will thank them for the love they offer each and every day and have them get to work on the manifestation portion.
The day I walked the Chartres Labyrinth December 07 2017
I was recently in Sedona, Arizona for an extended weekend. The reason for the trip? A Conference filled with other amazing goddesses to learn about Mary Magdalene. Our days were filled with lectures, activities, laughter and hugs. Not to mention a glass of wine or two to celebrate Love.
One afternoon we went to Angel Valley. This entire area is a portal onto itself and one can feel the energy shift as they approach the property. One of the features of this other worldly location is a replica of the Chartres Labyrinth. For those of you who may be unaware of this power of this labyrinth, indulge me for a short description:
The original Chartres Labyrinth is located in Chartres Cathedral in France. Here is a photo of the original:
As you will notice, or take my word for it, there are eleven circuits that each walks to reach the center. The number 11 has many meanings; one of which represents entering your own divine mastery. Within the center is a Six Petal Rose. Each petal holds the individual energy of Faith, Surrender, Service, Abundance, Forgiveness and Overcoming. A fantastic book that delves into this has been written by Kathleen McGowan and is titled, The Source of Miracles. I HIGHLY recommend this book. It discusses the Lord's Prayer with such power, one really may never need another prayer. Something I have long argued since a child.
Many replicas of the Chartres Labyrinth have been created with great love throughout the world and I was blessed to visit one this past weekend at Angel Valley. As one enters this labyrinth, or any labyrinth, it is requested that you place an intention prior to entering. For by going within and walking, you receive answers. Your intentions could be for greater clarity, vast prosperity to support you on your mission, health, etc.
As you walk with focus and open-ness, you are guided to a variety of ways that respond to your request. Some experience profound awakenings while in the labyrinth, others a gentle urging and everything in between. No matter your experience, it is profound.
Below is The Chartres Labyrinth in Angel Valley:
This labyrinth is huge. It is an exercise to not be rushed. One takes their time as they ponder walk. As I walked I did just that; pondered. Desiring better clarity for me personally; who was I? What am I here to do? How may I be of better service?
Answers softly entered. I entered the Rose and within petal I knelt and released and dug deep to not find answers, but to willingly allow the answers to settle there and integrate to BEcome part of me. As I finished the Petals, I was then directed to walk the petals in the center in reverse. No questions; I obeyed. I circled the other goddeses within the center and noticed the energy ran out to all who would walk the labyrinth that day. The energy was directed to each with great love to help them love more aspects of themselves to fully realize their own greatness.
I then walked clock-wise in the center. As I did so, the question again was as to why... 'helping each to obtain the quality of life they desire through their destiny and service.'
It was time to reverse the walk of the Chartres Labyrinth and bring this information out. As I did, I was more aware of the others walking. I observed each. The paths within the labyrinth are not wide enough for two to comfortably walk abreast. Some took a wide berth. Others acknowledged the other's presence in the form of gassho (prayer position) and a simple Namaste. Others hugged.
Again I was guided. I continued to walk with arms down and hands open.
As I approached each Goddess, Mary told me what they needed; to allow them peace and love in whatever form. Some passed by without a glance. Some reveled in Namaste. Some hugged fiercely. Within that hug a message of love was relayed upon completion with a deep simple look of the eye. A soul to soul look.
No one form is better than the other.
However Mary Magdalene continued to instruct and educate and remind me of the metaphor this represents of life.
- Some may pass in your life only briefly. No exchange is needed of any kind.
- Some may only need a moment of recognition at any level in order to move forward.
- Some may walk with you.
Each path is perfect for the person. No judgment allowed. Each path is greeted with honor and sent along with love; whether is it is in the physical aspect or energetic. Each path can be filled with great love. Within that love is truth, joy and the essence of BEing.
Below is our beloved walking... yes I am in there as well.
Mercury is revving up its last dance for 2017 November 29 2017
While Mercury does not officially go 'backwards' (retrograde) until December 3, it appears it is already affecting many via their energy levels, sensitivities and oh so much more.
While I can certainly lay the tiredness completely at my feet with the crazy schedule we took on this past fall, but that is just not it completely. Otherwise I would be the only one doing the Weary Dance.
Many may lay claim to the vast amount of richer food eaten over the holiday weekend...Guilty here too. We love the holidays in our home; playing games, nibbling, laughing, cavorting, yelling at football teams, drinking and more.
However, that is not the only culprit either.
Oh, so is Mercury doing its dance a bit early? Think so. Before you start panicking and desiring to put the pillow over your head until December 22, think of it this way.
Mercury in Retrograde is a gift.
Yes you read correctly, a gift.
You see, when Mercury does go retrograde, it is a golden moment to ponder, reflect and learn. We've ALL done stuff we aren't proud of. It's part of the Human Dance. Now is the time to reflect on how you may address a similar situation. Perhaps you would be a bit more non-judgmental. Perhaps you would be a bit more loving (especially towards self) Perhaps...
Mercury in Retrograde is great at triggering emotions and bringing them to the surface. You know those 'things' that we think are long forgotten, but are really just under the surface waiting for the opportunity to pop so they may heal. Through that healing we are given another opportunity to love on ourselves a bit more. This is a golden opportunity to sit quietly. Is it a real fear or imaginary fear? Certainly walking down a dark alley at night is not the best choice (legitimate fear). Compare it to feelings of lack. While that may certainly feel real, it's more of a thought pattern vs. a real threat to your existence. Can you see the difference between the two?
You don't have to find the initial time it happened in order for it to heal completely, but sit with that pattern from a non-judgmental viewing box. You will begin to realize that exists mostly in your mind which can keep you stuck and immobile. Now is the time to softly release it through your acknowledgment of it and let love flow more freely.
Remember, nobody gets a ribbon if they get to the finish line first (death). It is truly about the journey and how each turn is handled; with fear or with love.
The choice is yours.
This Mercury in Retrograde has many of the earmarks of offering all sorts of these kinds of situations.
Lovely, just what I NEED (like a hole in the head) you're thinking.
Yes, just what you need. Remember, 2017 is The Year of Transparency. This is the last hurrah to BE transparent with yourself. What do you desire? How do you truly wish to live? If you aren't truthful with yourself, how can you expect others to follow suit?
This, once more (feeling like a broken record here) sets the stage for 2018, The Year of Love.
It is time to LOVE yourself more.
It is time for LOVE to win.
It is time for LOVE to prevail.
Thanks Mercury in Retrograde!
Attitude is Gratitude! November 21 2017BEing grateful can be easy for the lovely things, but can you BE grateful for the not so lovely too?
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

Why does the Angel Chatter...Heavenly Guidance Book even exist? November 08 2017 1 Comment
Why did I create the book, Angel Chatter...Heavenly Guidance?
Quite simply because you asked.
You asked at shows.
You asked as a client.
You asked as a future student (thank YOU for sticking it out with me and my many rough drafts)
Answering is rather simple. I can talk an ear off an angel, but now ask me to write about my experiences and my knowledge with them?
That's a whole new different kind of wing in my world. A Wing of Empowerment that I didn't feel comfortable unfurling and showing; until now.
This book has taken years to write. Yes, really, years. Yes, there was a move or two thrown in for us personally which gave me a perfect excuse to delay and procrastinate on it. However, every single time I was prepared to let it drift off into that good night folks would start clamoring for THE Book (as I affectionately began calling). When was it going to be done? Could I teach?
Well you get the idea.
Your clamoring began to be incessant. Thank you. You propelled me to finish it. You propelled me more out of my comfort zone to share my knowings; the most uncomfortable growth spurt in a while. You encouraged me.
I listened and acted. I listened to the angels and got wing slapped more than once; some of those slaps came via you.
Time to put on those Big Girl Angel Wings and soar. Time to finish 'er up and release it. Time to BE, well me.
As many of you know, THE Book is now born. THE Book is being received all over the world. THE Book is here to not only entertain, but to inform and empower you through the help of the angels and the endless ways they can help you.
Each chapter switches energy, for it is a different angel.
Each holds within it a sacred mandala that has incorporated the angel's sigil and therefore has become a true powerful work of art.
This baby has become the base of The Authorization Course which is in its first official year and reading into the students feedback is superseding their expectations. Look into if becoming more confident with clients or simply building a closer relationship with the angels calls to you.
Thank you for not giving up on me. Thank you for pushing me out of my zone. Thank you for BEing you.
Money and the energy we have wrapped up around it. November 02 2017 2 CommentsMoney - this was an interesting channeling that Angel Chamuel offered in the way of allowing and self love.
Did you ever wonder? November 01 2017 2 CommentsDoes your mind ever play games with you? Mine does. I begin to wonder if this illusion we call life is real and if I am who I say I am.
October New Moon = The Portending October 19 2017
First, let's define the word portend. Good ol' Webster has it going that something momentous is coming. This could be calamitous. This could be glorious. This could be a mix of both. This is happening NOW. Much, MUCH has been fluffed up just in the past month from the personal to the global stage.
Look around you.
Just in recent weeks the #MeToo slogan has surfaced. Goddesses across the country and globe are stepping forward with their story of MeToo. The air is getting cleared.
Just in the past few days in our Facebook group, Angel Chatter, words were flying back and forth regarding the pneumonia vaccine. The air got cleared on many beliefs.
Last week, in another Facebook group (which shall remain nameless) another confronted me that perhaps I wasn't channeling the angels, but instead a lower energy for she had never heard of angels being channeled before. In years past I would have retreated thinking I had done something wrong. Not this time. I LOVED this exchange for it showed me how much I've grown. I stood my ground lovingly and spoke my truth. Quite a few 'liked' the comment (one never is really sure who reads these things, so it was refreshing) and she never did. In fact, she left the group. Oh well. I offered her love and she ran from it.
Many are experiencing thoughts of anxiety.
Many are experiencing thoughts that simply won't and can't be true.
The lower energies, as I call them, are having a BIG last hurrah and getting folks scared plain and simple. They are throwing challenges in where challenges need not exist. They are throwing in dramas where none is necessary. In other words, they are being and acting and doing the essence of a brat because they know they are losing the battle against the light.
YOU are the light.
It IS time to stand tall.
It IS time to BE proud of who you are. Acknowledge all that has happened in your past for it has contributed to who you are at this moment in time. While I may not know you personally, what I do known is that you are extremely cool and very deserving of all you desire. How do I know this? The Gang has told me so and they never lie to me.
That's it plain and simple.
Remember, true light casts no shadow. BE you and you are the light.
In the meantime, I am using my Moon Ritual Box and I am to share my intent for the coming cycle:
I promise to BE
I promise to help all to BE
For together we create a Web of Love that none can conquer.
What can Angel Cards do for you? October 18 2017
As many of you know, I channeled the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck in two weeks a few years back. I've gotten this question lately:
How do I use the deck and how are oracle cards different than tarot cards?
Both kinds of cards; tarot and oracle, are created to help inspire and empower the user. They are forms of divination. Tarot has been in active use since the mid 15th century. Oracle cards are a much newer divination tool and have been in use since the mid 19th century. Both have value and honestly I believe have been around much longer than the history books may show. My thought is that oracle cards came to be after tarot because tarot can truly take a lifetime to master and folks wanted a simpler, more direct way to divine messages from the universe and beyond. I personally don't use tarot because it makes my hair hurt. I always choose to go simple in anything. Don't always succeed, but when possible, simple is the go to option.
Oracle cards are typically more straight forward than tarot, no suits and cards within said suits, etc. However, many oracle decks seem to be designed as a tarot deck wanna be; beautifully and heavily illustrated with different meanings depending if the card was upside down, flew out, etc.
Still complicated for some. Why can't a message be a message? Why does the illustration have to have a meaning too? Why can't the message just BE? Why does it have to have the reverse meaning if presented in a different way? These are the sorts of questions I often found myself asking with no clear answer ... ever. If you are a seasoned reader, I'm sure you can make a logical argument as to the whys, but again this delves into hair hurting territory.
I like simple.
With that in mind, the Angel Chatter Oracle Deck was born. For starters, no illustrations; or the ones that are typically assigned to oracle cards. The only art on this deck is the abstract rose in the top left hand corner; everything does indeed come from LOVE. The other? The angel's sigil; the symbol that has been proven to me via clients and customers to strengthen your connection with that angel. Lastly, the angel's message. As I often say the message now can stand on its own merit and doesn't matter if it flies out, is twirling on its head or upside down; the message is the message.
How to use them? As with many things, there are a variety of ways. Here are some of my favorites:
- Pull one card daily. This helps to focus on a specific energy throughout the day. For example if the Breathe card is pulled, you are invited to remember this throughout your day if stressed, are exercising, or simply need a moment or two to self.
- Do a spread. There are many kinds of spreads out there and each one will also have its own merit. A spread is best done when you have ample time to sit with the cards and focus on each message and how it pertains/relates to you. A spread is very beneficial when there is a situation in your life when one card simply won't suffice. A spread can be as few as three cards up to ? A six card spread is offered in our guidebook.
- You could also pull the cards that all relate to a specific angel. As an example, if you are on a conscious Self Love Journey, pulling all of Chamuel's (Angel of Self Love) cards will help to reinforce how important it is to LOVE self first and foremost.
Hopefully this has simplified these age old questions as you step more confidently on your chosen path to BE. I look forward to reading your comments below and feel free to share the Chatter!
How is the soul always evolving? October 12 2017
Life can be a funny thing, can't it?
We yearn for different, better, etc. and yet we fight against the change. We crave the change and then run from it when it's presented. And yet we are constantly changing and evolving. We really can steer this vehicle to our advantage. We can evolve with more grace.
Please try to let that angst go... just a wee bit. Just this week we had a fantastic discussion in our Authorization Course conference call. What became very obvious was that no matter the situation, most would rather stay with what they know vs. the unknown.
The unknown is just that, unknown. It's vast. It's open ended. It's scary. Oh, but how fun is that?! You get to re-create how you wish to live your life! In other words, you get to live life on your terms.
It's loving yourself MORE.
It's in this Love Fest of Self that the soul truly evolves.
To put it in hopefully a less confrontational way; hasn't your diet changed over the years? If you are like any red-blooded human, you've been on a diet at some point. Whether the diet lasted to meet your goals or was only a passing fancy; you desired change.
Likewise, haven't your taste in clothes also changed? I'm preparing to go out for a very nice dinner tonight with my husband and came across a dress that had me wondering why it's even still in the closet. Off to the donation pile it has gone.
These outwardly changes are just a bit of an indicator of what we are processing internally.
When those internal shifts are acknowledged, greater change is then reflected outwardly. Think to a time when you stood up for yourself. Whether it was an abusive relationship that you ended (makes me very happy you did so). To ending a bullying situation because being a doormat was no longer an option. To perhaps simply speaking up and no longer desiring to be the lovely wallflower. You got more comfortable with who you are why you here.
You spoke up.
Maybe, you used the Askfirmation
Why is it safe for me to BE me?
This one Askfirmation alone will change your world for the better for the rest of your life. Why? The Universe conspires to work in your favor due to the positive question you are now asking. You take your power back bit by bit and you evolve.
You come home to BE.
It is taking that road less traveled. Perhaps being a leader in your field of choice. Being a leader can be lonely! You walk proudly ahead and never give up on your dreams. You pave the way so others may take an easier and smoother path. You follow through. Is each new adventure a door opener so others may find you? Maybe. Sometimes it is more a private adventure for you to better understand who you are and why you are here. No matter if you are a chosen leader, or not, you are, through your actions, teaching others how to BE.
Simply by BEing you, you are a leader. You are an inspiration.
You better understand it is about the journey and not the destination. We truly never know what is around the corner at the soul level, but we do keep moving forward. Our soul itches to BE and in the process of BEing, we chose a path and we grow and we dance through those unknown turns.
Rarely is path straight for long. Wouldn't life be boring if it was always so neatly laid out? I think so too. However, a straight path is presented periodically it can be thoroughly enjoyed to catch a breath and revel in how far one has traveled.
We have all had undesirable stuff happen to us. Some more horrific than others and I am in no way belittling the horrific. However, if we can take each situation for what it offers us at a soul level and grow from that, we get to never experience that disharmony again.
It's taking that road less traveled that you lead. You lead through your example of living life to the fullest; on your terms. You no longer strive to impress or mimic others. You realize and own the fact that you don't wish to be like them.
You desire to BE you.
THAT is when the road less traveled turns to LOVE.
Love of self.
Love with no conditions.
You better accept your foibles and your human imperfections; and while not making fun of self, you acknowledge those beautiful imperfections and realize this is just of the many ingredients that make the complete, beautiful package known as you. This is where Chamuel, The Angel of Self Love, is your winged bestie. She will continue to remind you to put you first. She will remind you to conduct Acts of Self Love that leave you rejuvenated, replenished and loving self more.
As you continue to evolve and come back to self, the universe at large notices without you saying a blessed word. Their response? Loving you more for who you are, not what you are going to do for them.
Why? Because you are evolving.
Please leave any comments below and feel free to share the LOVE!
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!
Why am I feeling this way? September 21 2017 2 Comments
Let's just put it out there; the energy is over the top wonky for many at this moment.
Yes, we can put blame onto the eclipses, hurricanes, moon cycles and more.
These are certainly contributing to feelings of anxiety, depression, uneasiness and yet...
Instead of fighting the unease. Why not dig a little deep and see what is gurgling up for recognition and a bit love?
We are at a precipice of sorts at this moment. The precipice is saying YES to our own life and moving forward with great love. We will always have stuff gurgling, remember BEing human is part of the game of loving self more. This will be a frequent quest for the remainder of your life.
I must admit I've been feeling the gurglings as well. Feelings of unsettledness beckon to me and flirt with me and are doing their darndest to make me weepy or truly lethargic, and yet I know all is indeed moving forward. I'm heeding The Gang's advice today and breaking my normal routine and doing something that I've wanted to do for over a year.
I'm painting our bathroom. While this may not sound extremely exciting or enticing for some of you, for me it heralds in new beginnings. I LOVE seeing a room come back together after it's been torn apart and given a new life. I find the placement of art rarely goes back to original spot. As I paint, I get contemplative. I set the intention of the space (for this exercise it is pampering and honoring self), ask a question (Is ______ the best next move for me?) and let it all go.
I paint, they respond.
I paint, they cajole.
I paint, they intercede.
I paint and find myself smiling and chuckling at their comments.
Find your painting exercise. An exercise that helps you break your routine. Set your intention and question. Let it go. BE.
You may be very surprised and pleased at what comes to you. It's time to spread your wings.
What on Earth is going on? September 13 2017 2 Comments
So many of you have reached out with questions of disbelief, low energy levels, not feeling 100% and more.
I get it.
Let's look to our most recent past.
We had a partial lunar and solar eclipse.
We had our first full solar eclipse in decades here in the States.
Two hurricanes just barreled through the States with unrelenting force, leaving too much devastation in their wake.
Think the energy is churned up? Of course it is! Why wouldn't it affect you? No matter where you live, energy is energy and it travels. This shift has hit everyone, at various levels. I'm no exception. I returned to our home away from the beach fer reals over the past few days. While our home was not in disarray, it needed some TLC and waking up.
Wake it up I did; cleaning each and every room top to bottom. Baseboards, windows, files, etc. all cleaned and purged. As I went from room to room I carried Michael's Sacred Candle with me bringing in the energy of protection while the kaka got swept up and away.
The house now feels great.
However, I was pretty exhausted (not a great way to start show season) and I realize a new not so nice portal had opened in our backyard. Even Gabi was anxious going out the back to play, relax and well whatever dogs do. She confirmed what I thought/knew; something was icky out there. Work was quickly assigned to The Gang and Mystical Creatures to close it off and send the unwanted energies back home (we don't displace around here and leaving someone else to deal with it all - not good karma in my book).
In the midst of this I facilitated a guided meditation with my students last night. It went well; however the reaction wasn't the typical WOW! Many felt a bit afraid afterwards - OH DEAR -
Ironically prior to the meditation we chatted about encountering new things - mystical creatures included - and how at times we push things away even if it is the very thing that is need at that moment in time. Why? Bottom line, it's something new. New can be scary. Especially if it is a powerful new tool often one doesn't feel worthy to have such a tool. I get that as well. I've turned away help many a time because I would think who am I to garner such assistance?
I toss back to you - why don't you deserve all the help you request/desire? Especially now with the energy swirling and twirling all over the place. Why wouldn't you allow outside assistance from The Winged and Haloed Gang or a Crystal (we have super cool sceptres), or a Unicorn or a Centaur or a ....
See where I'm going with this? Life is about asking and receiving. Not just the winning lottery ticket, but also in the day to day of life. From having your home protected as you clean, to your yard so it's safe for all to enjoy, to yes maybe winning the lottery.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this one powerful topic... allowing the assistance to come through even if you haven't asked for it. Trust me, they know when you are ready.

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.
