Apr 2018 Newsletter: Feelings vs Emotions

Happy Easter and Spring!

EnJOY your long weekend! Happy Easter…

This past few weeks have shown up in some interesting ways – I have replaced all of my electronics since the Solar Eclipse in Aquarius. All replaced out of necessity to shift old energies and because some weren’t working or in the case of my mixing board – it fried.

Remember we are in a Mercury Retrograde that can effect communications and electronics so find a way to BE conscious of your Feelings instead of allowing your emotions to dictate to you how to react to what is appearing to be happening around you. For more about BEing conscious of our feelings read my Inspiration below.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: April 2018

Not much is happening at the beginning of the April, except for the fact that we are smack dab in the middle of a Mercury Retrograde!  It stationed retrograde on March 22 at 16 degrees Aries 54 minutes activating a need to focus inwards.  Emotional intensity is stimulated by jumbled self-thoughts.  Take an honest look at who you are and ponder the process of “self-re-identification”!  Mercury will station direct on April 15th at 4 degrees of Aries 46 minutes.  Our thoughts create our realty, and right now, how we think about the self is of major importance.  This Mercury retrograde and direct is giving you the opportunity to think (and then act) differently, as it pertains to who you think you are.

On April 15th, the Sun and Moon align and will give you some clarity in your direction.  It is asking you to honestly look at what you need to initiate now.  Keep in mind this New Moon is conjunct Uranus so there may be something unexpected coming your way.  Be open to the energy that will allow you to break through or break free of restriction.  The New Moon also squares Pluto which can be emotionally intense.  The Universe is giving you the opportunity to change now. read more…

Inspiration: Feelings vs Emotions

This month my inspiration came from Emmanuel Dagher’s Club Miracles healing call – where he discussed the difference between Emotions and Feelings. I found it fascinating: he sees our emotions as something we have judged as either good or bad – where our feelings are from a state of BEing and are not identified or judged as either good or bad, they just are. Emmanuel’s definition goes against the traditional definitions of emotions and feelings. Which made me wonder about whether we tend to judge most of our emotions through our past experiences and if there is a way to come from a place of BEing when it comes to our feelings?

When thinking about our feelings and whether we are in a state of BEing instead of unconsciously judging ourselves – it is easy to see how emotions can cloud our judgment. I believe our experiences have been interpreted through our lenses of our beliefs and we create judgments around these experiences and labels that have told us whether something is good or bad. We often unconsciously experience through our emotions and we have decided whether it is a good or bad experience based on the emotion we believed we received from the event. However, this is where we can learn a lot about ourselves. If something gives us Joy does it actually come from a judgment? We may experience Joy – or our interpretation of Joy – when we believe we are superior to someone or something else – but could that be True Joy? Or can we in be in charge and responsible for how we respond in each moment – can we choose to BE happy, or how we want to respond, even if something is appearing to be happening around us like every piece of equipment breaking down – and just BE?

To me these are fascinating questions, maybe not so much for the expression of Joy, as this has been judged as a ‘good’ thing;  but what about the more negative emotions? What about when we seem to automatically get road rage or when something that we have judged as going wrong leaves us feeling frustrated, angry, confused or rather –  a state of fear? It would appear that we are not in charge of how we respond. We seem to automatically judge situations and then our judgments condition us to experience the situations as we have previously judged them. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could just BE in the moment and not emotionally react to the situations around us – such as when something isn’t working or we aren’t receiving the service we expect? Or are these just my unconscious reactions? If we could let go of all the fears associated with our beliefs – all the negative emotions that we have judged as bad or wrong – wouldn’t that open us up to having new experiences in the Now Moment where we can just feel out what is happening without the judgment?

Mar 2018 Newsletter: Heart-Centered Intentions

Happy Spring Equinox

Spring is always a time of New Beginnings, Emmanuel Dagher’s Energy Forecast for March is about shedding your cocoon. I think we often hibernate during the winter and become more excited once the warm weather begins to impact us. We have had some beautiful weather each month this winter, and after several days of warmer than average weather we are about to have a snow storm. But that is Spring – it is exciting and tumultuous. Just like life – we have exciting new adventures to begin and we have all the old fears or tumultuous events that trigger us still. Our only option is to become Conscious of the Present moment and choose how we want to respond each moment.

My Blog this month is about Heart-Centered Intentions and expands my understanding of how to create our world. It is consciously choosing to see how we respond and assist us to allow Love, Acceptance, Appreciation and Gratitude to empower our moments.

Nancy Arruda is ill and unable to give us her update, so check her blog over the next few days to a week to get March’s Universal Sky Updates or listen to our show that discusses March. We have Jupiter March 8th and Mercury going retrograde (shadow period begins the same day as Jupiter, but actual retrograde is not till 22nd-Apr 15th) this month. So be aware and plan ahead.

Inspiration: Heart-Centered Intentions

I read something this past week that peaked my interest and had me considering once again what we truly want and whether what we want is beneficial for us or if what we want is what we think we ‘should’ be doing. And what if how things worked in the past is no longer how anything works now? For example: what if the teachings of the Law of Attraction could work a lot better if some of the rules were tweaked?

I have been talking for years about how we need to focus on BEing instead of doing and that it isn’t the outcome of our doing that we necessarily consider as our goal but rather our ‘BEingness’ – but this week I came across a teaching that really hit it home as it encouraged me to contemplate what motivates us. When we focus on the outcome we are always searching for the results we intend. We are disappointed when we don’t get the results and this disappointment could completely spiral us out of the direction the Universe has been guiding us toward!

For years I have spoken about focusing on how we want to feel instead of a goal. And many spiritual teachers suggest that it is the journey not the destination. When we focus on how we want to feel – happy, loving, compassionate – we shift our focus to something that we can control or are in charge of: Ourselves and how we want to BE! And as we control the experience of our feelings in the journey we can enJOY the journey and, again, how we feel is something we are in charge of.

The spark this week was to focus on Love and Acceptance of what we are desiring most. This would fit in with our motivation – to take our goal, say ‘vitality’ or ‘health’ and shift the focus to desiring it because we Love Vitality or we are in full Love and Acceptance of a Vital Healthy body. Or in the case of desiring to make more money – it would be because we Love and Accept the work we do completely.

It isn’t lost on me that my ‘goal’ since 2017 is to have Love and Acceptance. My mantra has been: ​​“I choose to step Easily and Graciously into Radiating Unconditional LOVE and ACCEPTANCE while acknowledging the DIVINE within everything.” And I have also included the mantra: “I am making Choices that lead to the Highest VIBRANT HEALTH offering greater Opportunities for Freedom, Energy and Peace.” With this new inspiration appearing this week I believe that my exuberance for creating Love and Acceptance – as a part of my Being – can motivate me to bring Gratitude into my other desires. Gratitude opens our Hearts and shifts our vibration to higher states so that we can enjoy a Heart-Centered Life experience.

When we focus on Love and Acceptance we allow Gratitude into why we are desiring these shifts. We move away from a ‘goal oriented’ ambition towards a Heart-Centered Life Intention. We can take any goal that we want and turn it into a new way of BEing. Using Love and Acceptance we can allow Gratitude to enter into our Life Mission. Take any goal and examine why you want it and how it would benefit your life. Most of our top resolutions tend to be around health, whether it is an addiction like smoking or drinking (or sugar) to eating better or becoming more fit and even bringing balance into our lives. These all can be shifted towards what you would be most grateful for – using more Love and Acceptance. Health, Vitality, Joy, Abundance, Compassion – turn your goals into Heart-Centered Life Intentions. Read More…

Feb 2018 Newsletter: Contemplating Love

Happy Love Month

Did you feel that Super Blue Full Moon Eclipse yesterday? It was powerful and rare, last one was 150 years ago.

Well, February is always Love Month at Intuitive Soul and this year I was more contemplative than usual. I was told all my blogs are contemplative, but this one felt different. Maybe it was the passing of my first birthday without my mother especially since I was writing my blog on my birthday. I also feel like there is an energy of change occurring that may shift a great deal of change in my life and for the World. Obviously birthday’s make everyone consider our future and we just entered a new year with the Chinese New Year on Feb 16th, the Year of the Dog – so I think it is natural to consider where we are and where we want to BE. Let’s create a list and allow the Eclipse energy of the 31st and the Solar Eclipse on Feb 15th, the New Year and Chinese New Year to Create the Magic you are Desiring this Year.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Jan 2018

We finished the month of January with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Leo on January 31st, 2018.  We are still feeling the vibration of this eclipse after it transpires. Additionally, We are tapping into feeling the New Moon Solar Eclipse  that takes place on February 15th at 4:05 PM in the sign of Aquarius.

Eclipses are all about releasing, letting go and completing.  Once we have completed something, we start on a new beginning path.  We intensely feel the energy of Eclipses for two weeks before the first eclipse to two weeks after the second eclipse (they always come in pairs and are two weeks apart).  However, keep in mind that the lesson will be integrated for a six month period until the start of the next eclipse cycle.  (This year the next Eclipse cycle starts in July of 2018) In 2018 we are working with the Leo / Aquarius polarity (in July we will also have an third Eclipse in the sign of Cancer, brig forth the lessons around family in 2019).

The month of February is fairly quiet astrologically.  We are still integrating the Jan 31st eclipse into the beginning of the month (releasing what is stopping us from living with an open heart), but we are also being stimulated by the Feb 15th New Moon Solar Eclipse which takes place at 27° of Aquarius 07 minutes.   The sign of Aquarius brings in the concept of Universal Love and Joy.  Pulling in an unconditional love vibration.  How do/can you love yourself unconditionally?  When I think of Aquarius, I associate it to friends, associates, hopes, wishes and dreams!  With Solar Eclipses, we are still focusing on releasing, however there is a gift that can be attained once the lesson is learned.  So its energies are typically about bringing in the newness of a cycle within the self. read more…

Inspiration: Contemplating Love

As I contemplate my birthday today (written on birthday) I wonder about Love Month this year. Each year since I began this blog I have chosen February as Love Month and write something that I hope will inspire you to Love Unconditionally … or choose Love over fear. This has been quite the last couple of years for me with loss and my first birthday without my mother. I know this puts me in a contemplative mood and helps me to wonder about new possibilities. We all aspire to Dream Big on our Birthdays and focus on all the Magic that may transform over the coming year. I know that Love is important to me but it isn’t just the love of another I seek but to also Love Unconditionally and create Acceptance in my Life.

These are my goals this year and I strive to fully embrace this as my State of BEing. It is said, however, that if you are truly ready for a Beloved in your life then the Beloved would show up. So what am I missing if I don’t have that love with another? I feel that Self-Love is the area that I continue to seek clearer understanding. Seeing oneself as a Beloved will attract a Beloved. Tom Campbell says we already ‘Love’ ourselves, but don’t necessarily ‘like’ ourself and he spoke of the problem with narcissism in our latest show. We – or I – focus on areas that I want to fix – my health, my addiction to sugar, my body image. This year I experienced the worst sugar detox flu as I am determined to end my addiction to sugar (as I thought I had many times) and then as soon as that balanced itself out, I managed to put my back out (still not sure how that happened unless it was from a fall 3 days prior?). So my new Fitbit has not completely motivated me as I assumed it would (even though as a piece of technology with promise I love it). And the weather has also been quite temperamental and even the best days we had were NOT the best for my health.

However the point here is that I have been focusing on the areas I want to fix – before I feel ready to embrace myself and another. And this is exactly what I share each month that is NOT the answer. It means I feel I need to fix, heal, change, manipulate or control from a ‘doing’ place and won’t be happy until I have done this. My BEing place knows that I no longer want to BE a sugar addict and I am changing this because it is for my Health and Well-BEing. Nonetheless feeling like I have something wrong with me (an addiction) doesn’t help my self-confidence or help me embrace the Divine Essence within me.

Instead, like many others, I have shame, guilt and embarrassment around my Self and this doesn’t allow me to fully Embrace the Beloved within. I am not seeing the Divine Goddess that I am. Read More…

News for the Heart talks with Tara Greene about 2018

Laurie Huston from News for the Heart is talking with Tara Greene from TaraTarot.com. We chatted about what is happening astrologically for 2018. We discussed how the Tarot and astrology themes will impact us this year. The main themes are The High Priestess as it is a “2” year, Strength and Justice as an 11 year (North American uses Justice as 11 in Tarot, but Europe uses The Strength card. Saturn moving into Capricorn, Jupiter moving into Sagittarius, we discussed the eclipses. We shared some rare shifts beginning with Jan 9th Venus and Pluto conjunct in Capricorn hasn’t occurred in 248 years and Uranus moves into Taurus May 15th. We offered a reading for each sign and how 2018 will impact you for this year. We discussed how all of this will impact our New Year! Join us for this fascinating discussion!

How will you Master 2018

Happy New Year 2018! The year of Mastery and Love! I have seen different posts on what this year will be about. Intuitively I feel that this year is about Mastery and Love. I feel it is always important to set your intentions each New Year and forget your resolutions. Intentions are a choice we make that signals the Universe to help us create from a state of BEing, Grace, and clarity. Resolutions are something that we set and often, when we don’t achieve them, create a sense of failure. It is by definition a tradition in which a person resolves to change an undesired trait or behavior to accomplish a personal goal or otherwise improve their life (Wikipedia). Continue reading

News For The Heart talks with Tom Campbell New Years Intentions 2018

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Intentions and BEing vs doing. This is a deep conversation about the choices we make and whether we choose our intentions from a doing place or how we want to BE. We often come from a mental ‘doing’ space when we write our Resolutions for the year. And unless we come from our BEing level, we aren’t likely going to make any lasting changes. We discuss sugar, weight-loss, health, fitness and addictions and how we can approach them differently and what we need to make lasting changes. We have to own our problems, take responsibility for our fears and choices. When we have something we want to change, like our weight because it impacts our health, we have to have the correct motivation and approach it understanding what the underlying cause is. This is where we need to dig deeper than just our mental will to change. If we are just thinking it is best that we change, or it is healthier for us, we are really just coming from a mental state and not looking at how we want to BE differently. We have to figure out what the cause of the weight gain was in the beginning. Like smoking, we can use our will to loose weight and stop smoking, however, if the underlying cause is still present, and it is how we are BEing in the world, that fear will continue to create our addictions to food, sugar, alcohol, or smoking once our will looses it’s initial energy because the fear is still there! This is why mental ‘fixing’ doesn’t work. Once we establish the underlying fear, we have courage to BE okay with it and allow the shifts to occur and having acceptance. Coming from a place of Love will always create what it is we desire most. Join us for this important discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Dec 2017

The airwaves are getting a little intense for some people as we prepare for Mercury retrograde.  Mercury entered into its pre-shadow on November 15th.  It will station retrograde on December 3rd until it stations direct on December 22nd.  This is quite a synchronistic event for the year.

I did the numerology for 2017 which is 10/1, and then compared that to the Major Arcana in the Tarot. The #10 Card is The Wheel of Fortune which is ruled by the planet Jupiter.  The #1 card is The Magician which is ruled by the planet Mercury.  Jupiter’s Ruling sign is Sagittarius and Mercury is ruled by the signs of Gemini and Virgo.  As some of you may be aware, Gemini and Sagittarius are opposite each other on the zodiac wheel, so they mirror each other.

Now I have mentioned in prior newsletters, that Jupiter (#10 The Wheel of Fortune) shifted into the sign of Scorpio (death, transformation & rebirth) on October (10th month) 10th (day) in 2017 (10/1 year).  Remember Jupiter (growth, expansion, and wealth) is activating intense change (Scorpio) for everyone.

On December 3rd, Mercury is stationing retrograde at the anaretic 29th degree of Sagittarius 18 minutes.  When any planet is at 29 degrees of any sign, it pushes us into making decisions that can make or break us.  This might push you into blindly jumping into an agonizing decision.  There is a vibration of ‘completion’ with this energy.  What do you need to complete in regards to your thought process?

Also on December 3rd, we experience the Full Moon in Gemini, placing emphasis on the Mercury retrograde and what you need to finish up!  This has one on a quest for independence when that independence is being challenged.  One needs to liquidate the past and this Full Moon shows the path to liquidation!

Inspiration: Holiday Magic and Worthiness

As the Holidays approach I always feel the essence of Magic all around us. This energy is always present but feels stronger this time of year because of the excitement and anticipation of getting gifts for our loved ones and planning get-togethers with everyone who is important to us. Yet I know that for some people this Holiday time brings anxiety as maybe their finances aren’t available for giving to others and for many people there is a feeling of loneliness during this time. This year Ziad Hashash, one of the co-facilitators of a group that I participate in, talked about Worthiness and that it has been something we have had to prove throughout our lives. This was a very powerful message that I thought I could share in my way to assist you to feel worthy of enJOYing the Magic of this wonderful energy and time of year!

Ziad shares that we must prove we are ‘worthy of approval, acknowledgment, appreciation and even love. We learn this throughout our lives – beginning at a very young age. We are taught that we must possess worthiness in order to have a purpose, make money, and attract a life partner and that our very survival depends on the world agreeing that we are worthy and that our self-worth comes from outside of us’. One can see that being so outwardly focused this would impact our ability to connect with the Magic, the source of Worthiness, within us. ‘He claims this is the root of our problem as it is impossible to prove our worth as it resides within us, at the very core of our Being. And finally he claims that to turn off the ‘worthiness-seeking program’ we must stop acting like our worth is conditional and believing that we need to improve or change ourselves in order to gain worth. Looking outside for approval and worth keeps us trapped in a cycle with no way out.’

How powerful is this message to receive over a Holiday Season filled with Magic? The Magic that is available to us during this special time is because True Love exists in Giving. Too often we focus on what we want, need or desire or have expectations about because when we give we are expecting that we will receive something back in return. This creates expectations and conditions on what we give. Instead of giving from our Hearts to another; we are giving because our ego is desiring something in return. Read More…

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Holiday Magic and Worthiness

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Holiday Magic and Worthiness. This conversation begins with us discussing that most of us have difficulties with worthiness and that it is a fear we collect from a very early age. Our Ego holds on to our fears and how we get really stuck if we get depressed around the Holidays. He helps us again to understand that our intentions help us to move forward and sometimes we just have to ‘do’ it, as in go to the Holiday events and be Open, instead of going into our fears and avoiding all interactions. The Holidays are all about family and connecting with others. Relationships all assist us to grow and in cases where there is a great deal of anxiety or depression (which Tom claims is just fear and a choice) then you need to see your fears and move through them. It is through our intention to Grow towards Love or just Grow Up that the larger consciousness system that will help us and we can come from a place of BEing instead of an intellectual understanding. The changes, may not happen over night, but if you are patient and willing to open yourself up to the Holidays and come from a place of Giving (not gifts but just BEing) we can find the courage to grow and actually have fun. A big part of our interview is on Giving and connecting with the Magic of the season. Worthiness is difficult but it is just a fear we can overcome with courage and acknowledgment that it exists. Remember we are here to Grow towards Love not stay stuck in our fears! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

This book will guide you through the rapidly changing environment, and awaken you to the phenomenal opportunities the fifth dimensional energies have to offer.

Oct Newsletter 2017: Keeping your Energy Clear

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving and Halloween!

This has been quite the beginning to Fall here in Toronto. The hottest days this summer occurred this fall. And I felt particularly drained last week while trying to meet my deadline of the beginning of the month. So, instead I relaxed and let it all unfold 💜 Things are never quite the way we believe they are going to be and it was my inspiration for this month’s blog on keeping our energy clear. With all that has been happening in the world, it is hard to get upset about the small things. And most things are small things in the grand scheme of life.

We survived Mercury Retrograde just to begin it all again for our main Christmas season Dec 2nd to the 21st which will tamper with our Christmas gift giving. Yikes! Just letting you know in advance. Some planning may be necessary this holiday season.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Oct 2017

Another month has come and gone! We ended September with Pluto stationing direct and Jupiter opposite Uranus on September 28th!  The result for many people was pure exhaustion.  A tired energy that lingered deep into your bones, leaving you with wondering if you can keep expending this much energy. Now that October has officially started, does not mean that that exhaustion has left, as with outer planets, their vibe lasts for a while (a week or two in total).

October is all about balance and transformation.  Balance comes the Sun and Mercury in Libra.  Libra’s ruling planet, Venus (Woman, relationships, love and values) will be joining with Mars (men, action, and motivation) on October 5th, which initiates new relationship energy for everyone. Of course, the mind is activated here as both of these planets are in the sign of Virgo.  Try not to analyze everything that is happening or you will find yourself off balance.

The big shift that is coming in October is Jupiter is moving into the sign of Scorpio on October 10th!  Oh yah, change is happening!  Did you notice the synchronicity?  On the 10th month, the 10th day, in a 10th year, the planet which rules the 10th card of the tarot deck is changing signs!  Jupiter transits a sign for approximately 12 to 14 months.  As it completes its journey in the sign of Libra, we are finishing up with the learning’s of attaining balance and harmony.  You may have had a relationship experience that has taught you a lot and allowed you to grow in ways that you could not even have imagined.  Now that Jupiter is shifting into the sign of Scorpio, it is all about change!

Inspiration: Keeping your Energy Clear

What a summer this fall has been! Caught in a heat warning for the past week I have been examining how we deal with our life and energy. This past week especially – near the end of the Heat wave we experienced – I felt slammed energetically between being over worked and being drained due to the extreme heat.  We all have times in our lives when things impact our energy and sometimes even on a daily occurrence. When life happens and we get caught up in it, our fears tend to get triggered and we may not even realize it and we go on autopilot where we are reacting to life instead of responding. Once we go on autopilot we don’t have any control over our reactions and this will trigger our fears. Although, we are never in control, we can be in charge of our responses except when they are automatic – meaning we need to be present and aware of our energy and our fears. We need to make a choice to not let our fears over take our life. However, it isn’t always easy to see how our energy – or the energy of others – is creating more fear in our lives. Sometimes we don’t realize what is happening until we sit in reflection and examine what has been going on in our lives. If we learn how to keep our energy clear we wouldn’t get slammed nor react to life but respond. We would know when life is happening and determine whether it is our own energy or the energy of another that is impacting us. Therefore, we can make different choices on what the next move is to make us feel better.

So what can we do when, sitting in reflection, we realize something isn’t right? I will give you all the benefits of why having a personal or home clearing can be very helpful at that time: because sometimes we just need to explore our own options and eliminate things in our life that interfere or keep us blocked.

The benefits of having a home clearing can be found here. The benefits of a personal clearing will allow us to remove the cords (emotional and ethereal) that have been holding us back, most often from prior to the age of 7 when most of our patterns, behaviors and stories were created. Because we had a physical umbilical cord nourishing and nurturing us as fetuses, we create etheric cords that act in similar ways to most people in our lives, our family and intimate partners and to some extend co-workers, bosses and friends as well. A clearing allows us to start anew and change the old cords, patterns and stories that have become outdated from our childhood so that we can truly rebuild our foundations and create stronger ones. Either way – whether you have me do it, have someone else do it or you do it yourself – you still have to do the work yourself because everything happens within and nothing happens unless you allow it to.

So, what can we do ourselves? There are many things we can do before bringing in a professional and this will also assist you if you decide that you can’t do it on your own. Meditation, prayers (see links to some prayers I recommend) disciplines, commitment, music, crystals etc. – these can all assist us to keep clear. Choose an approach to keeping clear that resonates with you … and find your way. Find practices that still the mind, body, and spirit so you can hear the gentle guidance of the heart. Examine your reactions because how you respond in certain situations will help you understand yourself better.

Uncover how your limiting beliefs/habits/stories are holding you back and keeping you stuck. Reviewing these go a long way in understanding how you cope with life. Becoming aware of your reactions and responses to others helps you determine what responsibility you have – or are sharing – with your energy: are you blaming others, making judgments, needing to be ‘right’ to satisfy your ego? Are your emotions hijacking you? What are your stress triggers? There are so many questions that will help you understand what is influencing your energy. Once you determine what is influencing you the determination will assist you in becoming more aware how you are coping and what is affecting your energy. However, if you are always shifting it outside of you, please know that this is your Ego and you need to accept responsibility for your life and energy. Everything always comes from within you.

Here are some further tools that will assist you. When you learn how to shift from your head to your heart you can move towards acceptance, non-judgment and witness consciousness. This isn’t easy but it is simple. You learn to trust and accept everything as Divine in your life. When you can Live in Present Moment Awareness you can make breakthroughs as this is the only time you have the power to change anything in your life. Learning to break through your patterns and reactions to be in charge of your responses helps you to understand how things are impacting your energy. Trusting your Intuition and your Innate Inner Guidance is a wonderful tool to hearing that gentle voice within. Expressing your Authenticity, the natural soul essence of who you are, will allow you to BE who you are meant to be and grow towards the Divine essence of You.

In the book that was published “the Realities of Creation” – in my chapter on the Power of the Heart – I explored these tools and also offered ways to assist with understanding who you are. Obviously our energy and keeping it clear has to do with how we are showing up in our lives. Our internal and external queues affect how we relate in the world. Everything impacts our energy. Yet simply observing our thoughts, our behaviors, our patterns and stories will assist us to keep our energy clear.

One of the big things is remembering that this life is just one piece in the puzzle that is our soul. So we really need to give ourselves a break, be gentle on ourselves – and others – and create more awareness. We also need to take actual ‘breaks’ to refresh our energy and stop worrying about things so much like getting out my newsletter on the first of the month.

As I was reviewing a report the other day it was reminding me that not only a good night sleep was important but also relaxing and taking physical breaks from life are needed – and not just the ones that distract us like binging on Netflix. Following our intuition – especially when it reminds us that everything is Divine! And finding ways to be non-attached to outcomes and thereby letting go of the emotional charge with which situations present themselves to us. This doesn’t mean we are unauthentic or are somehow bypassing our lives.

But in all of us let’s remember that breathing is far more important than we usually realize. I recommend Heart Breathing and will be creating a post on this, with an audio meditation to assist (it will be linked to this blog when complete). And lastly, and it is really key to all this: get clear about what you really want. Often we just know what we don’t want but that’s not enough because these are very different things!

I also want to offer some things that can remove or shift your actual physical energy in this article about Energy Clearing. I often recommend having a salt water bath: putting two cups of salt into the bath water will energetically clear one’s physical body. This will have an effect similar to swimming in the ocean despite the fact that this is a luxury that most don’t have. Burning a beeswax candle for three hours is very good for your home and for your body. Using a Tibetan or crystal bowl or drumming can clear both house and person. Creating an alter for prayers in your home is a way of creating a discipline and intention within your home for honoring your Inner Self. Reading an inspiring book can shift your energy. Going for a walk on the grass or earth – barefoot – is great for grounding any energy in your body and while you do this imagine the earth accepting your energy almost like a waterfall moving through you – or imagine the energy going down through the roots of your inner tree.

Everyone has their own way to get their energy clear and often it is triggered by recognizing that there is a problem first. Sometimes we are so embroiled in life we are too caught up to see how it is affecting ourselves. We can always offer up everything to the Divine within us – or outside of us – (as long as we believe this will work) and Let GO. What is your way of keeping your energy clear? Let’s play together.

News for the Heart: Laurie Huston talks with Amit Goswami

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with Author, Quantum physicist Amit Goswami (known for his role in What the Bleep) on his newest book: The Every Thing Answer Book: How Quantum Science Explains Love, Death, and the Meaning of Life. Goswami’s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but is also the key to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics is an antidote to the moral sterility and mechanistic approach of scientific materialism and is the best and clearest approach to understanding our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. This fascinating new book (and our interview) will appeal to a wide array of readers, ranging from those interested in the new physics to those captivated by the spiritual implications of the latest scientific breakthroughs. Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

Theoretical Quantum Physicist Dr. Amit Goswami is a retired full professor from the University of Oregon’s Department of Physics where he served from 1968 to 1997. He is a pioneer of the new paradigm of science called “science within consciousness,” an idea he explicated in his seminal book, The Self-Aware Universe, where he also solved the quantum measurement problem elucidating the famous observer effect.

Goswami has written several other popular books based on his research on quantum physics and consciousness. In The Visionary Window, he demonstrated how science and spirituality could be integrated. In Physics of the Soul, he developed a theory of survival after death and reincarnation. In The Quantum Doctor, Goswami sought to integrate both conventional and alternative medicine. In Creative Evolution, Goswami presented a resolution between Darwinism and the intelligent design of life. In God is Not Dead, he asserted that not only are science and religion compatible but that quantum physics proves the existence of God. In Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative, Goswami explained all facets of creativity—its definition, the quantum thinking it entails, and what is required to be creative. In Quantum Economics: Unleashing the Power of an Economics of Consciousness, he focused on critical issues for a new paradigm in economics and business for the twenty-first century, touching upon the stability and sustainability of the economy and leadership, as well as creativity and ethics in business.

In his most recent book, The Everything Answer Book (April 2017), Goswami’s basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but it is also the key to understanding consciousness, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life.  In short, quantum physics offers a theory of everything.

In his private life Goswami is a practitioner of spirituality and transformation. He calls himself a quantum activist. He appeared in the film What the Bleep Do We Know!? and its sequel Down the Rabbit Hole as well as the documentaries Dalai Lama Renaissance and the award winning The Quantum Activist.

Sept Newsletter 2017: Letting GO – Is it a Choice?

Happy Equinox!

I can’t believe the summer is almost over and we are heading into our Fall Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. I do love the Fall, although, this summer has been too short and the weather this past month has been confusingly cooler than normal, although, certainly not cold. And what about that amazing Solar Eclipse?

The energies have been quite extraordinary despite Mercury’s Retrograde transition in Virgo. Alas we still have a few more days with the trickster planet before it goes direct. What will you remember most about the Summer of 2017?

Every 1st and 3rd Monday of each month I join Jean Adrienne on her show InnerSpeak Soul Adventures where we have a live call in show with FREE readings and clearings. The number to call is  657-383-1895. It’s a lot of fun, so Join US!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Sept 2017

We start the month of September with a Mercury Retrograde.  Mercury stationed retrograde on August 12th while at 11 degrees of Virgo.  However, at the end of August on the 31 Mercury has retrograded back into the Sign of Leo!  While Mercury blazes through Leo in Retrograde, one may be able to find love through unusual perspectives.  If we look to what is happening with all the flooding around the world (USA and India, Nepal and Bangladesh) there is an unusual perspective of love being shown.  On the same note, for those experiencing it, there are unusual views of courage being expressed.

Mercury will station direct on September 5th at 28 degrees of Leo!  This direct motion takes place at the exact same degree as the Solar Eclipse that transpired on August 21st.  When ever a planets stations at the same degree as an eclipse, there is a trigger of that eclipse energy.  What did you experience during the Solar Eclipse in August?  That eclipse was all about awakening to what is keeping you from living with an open heart filled with Love.

But with Mercury stationing direct, our mind is now involved.  How is your mind not supporting the visions and desires of your heart?  How can you change your thought process so that you can align to living with a more opened heart?  As Mercury triggers that vibration once again, we will see what the final pieces of the puzzle are to awaken to the vibration of Love!  Mercury will not be in this sign of Leo for long, only 10 days, before it goes back into Virgo on September 10th.

With Mercury in Leo one must keep their ego in check. If working from ego consciousness, there is a block to receiving true Love vibrations.
Additionally, at the time of the Solar Eclipse in Leo, Mercury was at 8 Degrees of Virgo Rx.  So when we are in the post shadow period, there may be an opportunity to heal the mind when it returns to this degree on September 17th!  All I can say is “Open your mind, and your heart will follow… or… Open your heart and your mind will follow”.  Both statements are true, it’s just a matter of which one comes first for you!

There is more taking place in the month of September, but you will have to check it out here

Inspiration: Letting GO – Is it a Choice

‘Letting Go’ is a concept I have worked with and discussed in my blogs for many years. Sometimes I feel that I understand it from just a mental notion and other times I feel that I understand it from a BEing level. However, offering a way for others to work with ‘letting go’ is not as easy as I would like. When something feels easy, like how I can shut my empath abilities off – as I learned to do as a young child –  I find it difficult to explain in a way that my readers (clients, friends) can easily understand and use their understanding in living their lives more fully. I think when something becomes second nature to me I need to take extra care in explaining myself – especially when we are talking about ‘letting go’.

Some may say it is because I am an Aquarian that allows me to distance myself and easily let go; others may suggest it is because I have learned to not deal with certain triggers but rather stuff them down and go into ‘spiritual bypass’ – although I know this not to be the case – and therefore I SEEM to let go. However, it is my spiritual growth, strong logic and life choices that have allowed me to shift from a place of being triggered to a place of ‘letting go’.

I am consciously aware of when I go into a place of being triggered. I know when my emotions are triggered and I feel uncomfortable. I become conscious of this quickly and determine whether these are my fears or something else. And it is always my fears! So if I feel discomfort then I know it is a fear that is in play. However, it is important not to bypass the authenticity of certain emotions. Grief is a very raw emotion and it is an authentic emotion but allowing it to take over my life doesn’t honor my life or journey. We definitely need to BE more authentic, acknowledging when we are in emotions that are ‘real’ and true is important in BEing authentic.  However, it is still our fears. But allowing these fears to rule our lives, to add to our story and create suffering, is a choice. The choice we are choosing is fear. We are holding on to fear.

We often hold on for all the wrong reasons: we hold on to people because we believe they are ‘the one’ or because we believe we can’t ever be loved or we believe we don’t want to be alone; we hold on to places we are afraid to leave; we hold on to stories because we are too attached to them and can’t see that by our holding on we continue to recreate them; we hold on to situations that we blame, justify and judge so that our ego can personalize everything like it is happening to ‘us’; and we hold on to our beliefs, intentions and fears that have so much of our energy wrapped up and inserted into the ‘story’ of our lives. We seem to have too much attachment to holding on because what if we have nothing left if we let go of the things we hold onto so tightly?

What would our lives look like if we couldn’t control, manipulate, change or fix them? Ironically, we can never control or manipulate our lives or anyone else’s – we are only ‘in charge’ of our choices.

And when it comes to change, healing or fixing of our-self or someone else – often becomes a block. It would be best if we could unconditionally accept and love and have change come from this space of acceptance instead of trying to fix everything. As we are inherently perfect just as we are! It is through acceptance that most change can come from a BEing level.

Ultimately, we don’t see we have any choices and continue to give our power to others and situations outside of us so that we feel justified in our fears and stories. Most people believe we don’t have choices because we believe our emotions are being overpowered by people and situations outside of us. I see that ‘letting go’ really comes from our ability to see that we DO have a choice. What do you choose?

News for the Heart talks with Tom Campbell on Consciousness, Energy and Healing

Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Consciousness, Energy and Healing tools. This conversation began 2 months ago when we discussed clothes and energy from wearing someone else’s clothes. Tom’s research and teaching is slightly controversial as he sees energy, healing and all the tools we use are really information or data and they are metaphors from this physical virtual reality. We don’t want people to think they don’t work, but to understand that our beliefs, intention and fears will effect whether a tool will work for us and how it works for us. We can see, feel, hear or know energy because we have learned this through how we have been taught and it makes sense to us. However, as Tom explains energy is just data and what we believe is energy is just a metaphor for this data, how we sense or feel this energy that can change something or has the ability to have an effect on us. Ultimately our healing and the tools we choose have more to do with our consciousness and power we give the tools. Consciousness is the active ingredient and everything else is a tool or metaphor. Through our intention to understand or heal someone it is through the larger consciousness system that will offer us the information we need to do this. That is why our intent and working with our consciousness will and does heal. We will gravitate to specific modalities or tools that offer the greatest understanding of what we are doing or having done to us. The tools work because we give them power and they make sense to us. The changes effect us from a BEing level and rarely work if they just come from ‘doing’ or a mental wish. The tools work because we have an intention that we believe in. Remember we are our consciousness not our body! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!

July & August Newsletter 2017: Transitions

Happy Summer!

I hope everyone is having a Wonderful Summer. For me it has been a HUGE revelation and Awakening. A full year of transitions that have ended a series of 3 with my mother’s passing June 25th 2017 (see blog below for more information). So for that reason I have missed my July 1st newsletter and will include as much of August to wrap up the summer edition.

Since this newsletter will include August I wanted to remind you that we will be having a Solar Eclipse on Aug 21st, some people in North America will have a Full Solar Eclipse and here in Toronto it will be a partial, but should be quite spectacular. Just be SAFE! We will also have Mercury Retrograde beginning August 12th and in Virgo, which Mercury rules which may make it pretty powerful. Unfortunately, we may not be able to take advantage of the typical great deals for new computers or tablets that occur in August.

I have a new Teleclass on Sunday July 30th at 3pm EDT that I hope you will join!

intuitivesoul-personal-meditationI’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!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: July & August 2017

The summer has been an interesting one so far!  I am not speaking about world events, but rather personal ones.  As a 1 year, we are all open to new beginnings, but who knew, that the 10 energy would have a stronger influence then the 1?  Ten is comprised of the numbers “1” and “0”, and before we can start anew, we must focus on the circle of spirit, the zero.  Before we can start anew, we must identify with the aspect of self that is not human, you can call it your Soul or you can call it your Spirit, they are similar, but they are also different.  Our Soul is our highest feminine influence of the goddess that lives within everyone.  Our spirit is our highest masculine influence of the Divine.  Our Soul is our light and our Spirit is what shines from that light.  Our Soul is a mystery to us, but our Spirit is what lives within us at our heart center.  When we forget to raise the vibration of our Spirit, it can easily fall prey to our ego.  Our ego is our lowest vibration of being human.  The part of us that forgets there is a divine plan, the part of us that tries to control what is happening in our lives, when in fact there is no control.

Why all this talk of ego, spirit, soul and control?  Well with the Sun moving into the sign of Leo, the ruler of the Sun, our heart chakra and our creative potential. That will become the focus of our realties in the next little while.

I am not just speaking of the Sun in Leo, keep in mind the path we are travelling this year as it is connected to the North and South Nodes is also the Leo / Aquarius, the path of Love!  Personal love vs. universal love.  Conditional love vs unconditional love.  Creation vs manifestation.   This is the balance we are all trying to integrate at this time.  With the Nodes in Leo / Aquarius we can experience eclipses in these signs as well, and guess what? They are taking place in the month of August.

Eclipses are points of emotional and psychological release!  The Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) typically being more emotional then the Solar Eclipse (New Moon).  The Lunar Eclipse will show you your lessons and what you need to release, and the Solar Eclipse will show you your gifts and how you can embrace them through releasing what no longer serves.  Both challenge us to tap into our raw feminine energies, to dive deep into our heart and all the lower chakra’s so that we can release what does not serve our Spirit.  Typically ego issues will be triggered, but there is hope, there is the rise of the Age of Light which activates our Souls higher frequencies so that we can BE all that we ARE!

Oh yah, I almost forgot, while we are trying to find balance in the eclipses, Mercury will station retrograde in August.  Nothing like feeling the lunar flow when the mind has retreated inwards!  Get ready, it is going to be very interesting!!!

In my monthly newsletter I will specifically tap into the eclipses in August, but for now, if you would like to understand July, you can check it out on my blog at Universalsky.com

Inspiration: Transitions fear from Change to Death

Transition can mean several different things. It can mean change; it can mean we are going through a different phase in our lives; or it can mean the ultimate transition, death. There seems to be a lot of fear around ‘transition’ and ‘change’ and maybe there is something in the word ‘transition’ that brings up our wounded child who is afraid of the unknown. For me the month of June brought with it the end of a cycle of ‘transitions’ over the past year and with the end of a cycle of ‘transitions’ perhaps I am seeing things more clearly and am more able to face other transitions yet to be without the same kind of anxiety I may have in the past. My brother was buried June 30th 2016; my beloved cat Jasper transitioned Oct 1st, 2016, and finally my mother transitioned and was buried June 28th 2017. They say bad luck comes in threes but for me these three transitions were symbolic of a deeper message around letting go. The power of three huge occurrences that happened in one year suggests to me that my life has been completely reborn into something new. My being reborn is like a transition toward freedom. I have an opportunity to see the world anew and look at what is most important to me and maybe to look at what I have been afraid to do and allow the Universe to show me something I can’t even imagine. THAT would be most important to me, that act of just allowing myself to change how I look at the world and that would help bring about change or transition in me that is freeing. So there really is no need to fear change.

I often wonder why we fear change and the unknown. If we believe our Soul is eternal then there is no change – like the transition we make from this world to another at what is called ‘death’ – that is ever really unknown. No major transition could possibly happen to us that we haven’t already experienced and therefore we should hardly fear it. Even death, albeit most difficult for the ones left behind, is just a transition to another state of BEing … and we get to go ‘home’. What could be better than that?

What I was finally able to heal by the end of this transitions episode was my abandonment issue, as central to my understanding with the most recent passing of my mother. And I wasn’t triggered in ways that I have been. So as my mother was preparing for her transition – that came on very quickly and surprisingly – I was able to hold space and quickly come to terms with her passing. I know she is free and with that I too have a greater freedom than I have ever had.

The journey began with my brother, who I was holding as he began his ascension. And I believe my sweet boy Jasper allowed me to dive deeper into this sacred wound and with the bringing of my adorable girl Angel I was finally able to see just how immortal our souls are; as she was the combination of the three most important beloved human carers (pets) in my life.

So then the question remains: what is it about change, transition, and the unknown that we fear so much? While preparing for my interview with Paul Selig – that had to be rescheduled because of all the time I spent with my mother as she was transitioning – I realized just how powerful the present moment is and I became very aware of some ‘truths’ that I may have known on a mental level but never truly felt on a BEing level.

As an aside I must say that I’m very much looking forward to this interview with Paul, an interview that has been rescheduled for Sept 12th. He is writing a very powerful trilogy. The Book of Mastery was released in 2016 and The Book of Truth: The Mastery Trilogy came out in mid-2017 and the third is to be released next year. I highly recommend any of his books but the first two of his new trilogy profoundly affected me. There are very powerful words and initiations that lie within these channeled words.

So back to my question: ‘what do we fear?’ I believe this is a question we must explore deeply within ourselves as it could be the answer – and a way – toward healing our sacred core wounds. To me the answers and healings occurred while reading and feeling Paul’s transformative words. These powerful and changing words affected me possibly more than even my personal trilogy of events that occurred this past year. I believe these events signaled an important phase in my life and maybe were the catalyst to personal healing but I also believe I have been being prepared for this particular change moment throughout my whole life. I feel reborn! Awakened in a way I have yet experienced. And it is through my continuing to explore all the different ways fear affects my life.

I also have the opportunity to work with some beautiful souls who are trying to understand their own core wounds. Through working with others I can often see more clearly what they need to do and it assists me to heal and BE clearer within my own triggers. The motto that I try to live by is: ‘Lead By Example’. When someone I know or work with is going through something I know on deeper levels it is something I am learning about myself and before recommending different options I ensure I live them first and foremost. This enables me to heal many of my issues that are more easily triggered. Some issues clear up even without direct experience. Still others become clearer because I now understand past experiences from a deeper place.

I believe the way to understand our issues the most is by detaching ourselves from the intensity or the emotional charge of the experience and the way we can do this is by reviewing our experiences. “Remembering the Light Within” is another incredible book from the Hulnick’s who I interviewed last month. The book offered some excellent thoughts that can help you if you are open to seeing things from a different perspective such as:

  • Our spiritual curriculum is to heal our unresolved issues;
  • Unresolved issues are anything that disturbs our Peace;
  • Unresolved issues are not bad; they’re simply part of our Spiritual Curriculum;
  • Unresolved issues are blessings, as they are opportunities for Healing and Awakening;
  • The work of Healing, or resolving unresolved issues, is spiritual work and is a major aspect of what Spiritual Awakening is all about; and
  • Observing Both our Inner and Outer Choices as we are the only one who can choose our attitude toward how we relate with ourselves, others, and the situations and circumstances in our life.
  • Will it be judging or accepting, criticizing or prizing? This last question is very important. Can we come from a place of unconditional love, acceptance and compassion towards ourselves and others?

The universe and our eternal Soul offer us infinite opportunities to heal our unresolved issues. If we don’t heal an issue it will be repeated until we can – even if it takes several lifetimes. This is the beauty of this physical reality. However, we must be open to fully embracing these teachings and pursuing the only true goals each life holds, to awaken to the present moment, acknowledge our choices of fear over love and know we are in charge of our story to truly heal and change our perception of our experiences: simple but not easy. And yet I feel I have overcome some of my deepest sacred wounds in my own trilogy of transitions that have taken place around me over the past year. The answer to understanding the ongoing transitions that seem to constantly flow around us lies within and can be revealed by the continuous pursuit of our Awakening. Walk with me (or run since everything seems to be at warp speed) as we take this path together.
