Happy New Year!
Well many of us will be happy that 2016 is behind us and a New 1 year cycle begins on Jan 1st 2017 (1-1-1)! For many, including myself these past 9 years have been a HUGE growing period, although, this past year seemed to have many blessings, I became a published author with a chapter in Realities of Creation, I appeared in a documentary with an interview of Tom Campbell that I did back in 2009, the documentary was The Path 3 Evolution and I found my beautiful Angel (photo below); I also had challenges with loss and transformations. So, I for one am very happy to start this New Year and New cycle. In a message for a new teleclass, this year is about “Possibilities” which we can be open to as long as we are in the NOW moment.
Please remember we are still in Mercury Retrograde so as we make plans for New Years Eve and beyond till Jan 9th, to make sure you double check anything electronic like reservations or emails as this trickster planet loves to play. Also, due to Neptune on New Years Eve please don’t drink and drive!
I’m offering a new service of personalized 10 minute meditations that will include a set of wishes that are channeled to inspire you or someone you love for the Holidays or any day! This is a wonderful way to begin or end your day!
Our book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! For the coming months, I will be doing a series of interviews on the book, see Facebook for updates. It would make A wonderful Christmas Gift. Buy Yours Today!
My interview for this brand new series is in Feb. Join us for this!
I have another New Teleclass Jan 16-Feb 28th at New Three University named Intuition, Prophecy and Vision, more information coming soon!
What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: January 2017
We start a New Year filled with new beginnings! Yes, this is a one year which is filled with potentials and possibilities! The key to remember is that we are all focusing on the principle of will and focused consciousness. This is the year to align your thoughts and your mind with precision like focus on what you desire to start in your life. 2016 brought us many endings, closures and completions, some of which had major karmic implications. Whenever we deal with Karmic completion, it is never easy on the ego. However, hopefully everyone learned their lessons, that way we can totality embrace the newness that 2017 brings us.
The key astrological vibrations for this year are Mercury, Jupiter, and the Sun. All of those planets bring forth the ONE vibration. Speaking of Mercury, we start the year while in a Mercury Retrograde. Mercury stationed retrograde on December 19th at 15 degrees of Capricorn and will station direct on January 8th at 28 Degrees of Sagittarius. So we start the year with RE-structuring the mind and our thought process. I see this as a good thing as we all need to clear away the karmic completion energy of 2016. There are deep mental transformations taking place with this particular mercury retrograde, so embrace any releasing that you are doing until it stations direct.
In a year when Mercury has power, most of the retrograde cycles start in earth signs and retrograde back into fire signs. This is a year to focus on realigning the body and spirit! Communication is important this year, so get clear in your thoughts! Unity is a major theme and with Mercury, we are focusing on the Unity of Self!
Jupiter represents growth, abundance, and spiritual learning. Jupiter’s journey in 2017 focuses on the Unity in Diversity as the individual interacts in society. Jupiter will remain in the sign of Libra (relationships and balance) until it shifts into Scorpio (transformation) on Oct 10, 2017. More on the influence of Jupiter later in the year! So stay tuned!!
The Sun shifts signs every month and when it does, it shifts how our ego and spirit interact in the different situations within life at any given moment. The Sun inspires the Unity of Spirit and our vital life force energy. We are looking to align with our heart chakra this year. To find the passion that resides within our heart (love) and create something magical (forgiveness). The eclipses in 2017 are shifting from the Virgo / Pisces polarity of 2016 into the Leo / Aquarius Polarity. Again emphasising the need to operate with heart centered consciousness in your interactions and goals for 2017. (Eclipses are taking place in the Month of February and August in 2017).
This January, embrace what your spirit is asking you to do. Align your will and consciousness and focus on the desired outcomes that reside within your heart. Feel the passion of this new energy surge through you, but don’t forget to ACT and do what is necessary! I wish everyone a prosperous, abundant, joyous, healthy and aligned 2017!

Inspiration: Resolutions and Sabotage
I have to say the last month of this year made up for the challenges throughout 2016. Receiving my sweet little kitten, Angel, on Dec 7th was definitely part of the Christmas Magic I so often talk about! However I’m amazed that the year is ending and a New Year, a new 9 year cycle is beginning. On Jan 1st 2017 (1-1-1) we begin a whole new cycle and I invite you to contemplate what the next 9 years hold for you, not just 2017. I, for one, can say that over these past 9 years I have grown more towards love than ever before. That certainly doesn’t mean it has been easy, no, not by any stretch of the imagination. This past 9 year cycle has seen change, death and transformation. In fact, I have been able to completely anchor my business and my services with a whole new energy – even when the price seemed quite high at the time.
I invite you to consider what you have learned over the past year and the last 9 year cycle. As you contemplate your New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 – and the next 9 years – I encourage you to ponder not what you want outside of you but rather how you would like to BE inside! It is my belief that it is the outside desires that are often sabotaged; like losing weight, stopping smoking, getting fit, and getting organized. These are all things that we “do” and when we check out the stats, apparently only 8% of our ‘doings’ are actually successful! Why? Because we sabotage ourselves and aren’t coming from an authentic place of “BEing”.
‘Doing’ results in falling back onto old patterns – especially if we haven’t changed any of our beliefs, fears or expectations – because we are trying to control, manipulate, change or fix ourselves from this ‘doing’ state. Emmanuel Dagher offered this beautiful meditation from his free gifts of the Holidays on ‘Sabotaging’. He, as always, brought up some profound thoughts and healings on why we sabotage ourselves and he helped us to want to BE seen, heard, and recognized by the Universe as Honoring the Universe within us. We are so afraid of BEing seen, heard, and recognized that this leads us to needing outside approval. And ultimately we also have trouble receiving all that the Universe offers us. So no wonder we have such low success rates in trying to ‘do’ things related to our past patterns.
When we come from a place of Being we are first connecting with the Infinite and Authentic Self within us. We are acknowledging our True Self. However, Tom Campbell also suggests that when we come from a place of BEing we are authentically revealing the fears that we often keep hidden. This would be where our little self lives and it is just as important to accept who we are from this “little” place. It is in this state of “littleness”, caused by the fears previously hidden, that we have the capacity to make changes to our Inner Being by BEing present and conscious of all the fears that keep our patterns and stories intact. In fact, I would suggest that this is how we sabotage ourselves the most.
Each of these ‘fear’ elements of our existence offer opportunities to shift into authenticity and levels of BEing. We each come from a place of expansion and a profound connection to our Infinite Self. This connection allows us to come from a feeling place of Love and of the Remembrance that we are already ‘Whole’. Such a connection opens us to the absolute and everlasting essence of who we are: the expansive and immeasurable Universe/Spirit/Soul within us. And it creates a feeling of oneness and unconditional Love that allow us to create Magic from this place of NOW. We can see, hear, and acknowledge our Self from a place of Wholeness and Beauty. In this state everything is Perfection. And our True Self aligns with Source.
The authentic circumstances that come from the smaller self are also just as important. These circumstances allow us see how we feel separate from Source and our Inner Self. This seeing and feeling is part of the way in which we can truly uncover our deepest fears; fears that dictate how we react automatically to our circumstances – circumstances in which we can see and understand that we don’t feel ‘Whole’ – and in such circumstances we create addictions to distract us from feeling and these distractions lead us to searching outside ourselves for things to “DO” to change, fix or heal ourselves. In other words, we feel broken or ‘not enough as we are’. And it is here that we sabotage ourselves.
When we can authentically acknowledge these deeper fears then we can come into a place of acceptance rather than create ways to change, fix or heal from a place outside ourselves. Once we can actually accept that these are the fears we carry with us, consciously or unconsciously, then we can credibly dive in and see these fears and how they are just part of a story we hold within us; a story we have made up instead of truth. We can move into a place of ‘now’ and detach from the inaccuracies we hold onto as truths.
I welcome you to come up with whichever authentic place that will create the most positive change for you. I see benefits from both the little place of limiting fear or the more expansive place of Wholeness but when I imagine 2017 – and the next 9 year cycle – I prefer to come from a place of infinite possibilities. I wish to feel my Wholeness and Inner Self that is expansive and Magical. My resolutions will include letting go of certain fears that I am ready to let go of but ultimately my intentions will be focused on how I want to ‘feel’ this next year: a space of unconditional Love and Acceptance; one that exudes Peace and JOY! What will you set your New Year’s intentions as?
