Nov 2018 Newsletter: BEing is a Choice

Happy Thanksgiving

This is my favorite time of the year. The trees are changing into beautiful colors and the temperature is still nice – there is so much to be Thankful and Grateful for. Although we had Thanksgiving in Canada already last month, we still celebrate Thanksgiving with our American friends south of the border.  I am very Grateful for all the Blessings that surround me. Thank you all for your Love and Support over these years. I’m eager to discover the new opportunities that abound and my continued service. Thank you for Choosing IntuitiveSoul 

I had this breakthrough around ‘time’ this past week. It was too late to put in my Newsletter this month. It was about how although we can’t change our past – it happened – we can change how we responded to it which will assist us to shift our perceptions of the past and our fears. Tom Campbell and I discussed this in our latest interview. Check it out.

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

We start the month with Venus in retrograde (since October 5th, 2018). On October 31st, she retrograded back into the sign of Libra slightly shifting the energy from releasing values that no longer serve us to focusing on relationships. Do we need to release the relationship, or do we need to focus on repairing it? How are the people in your life serving you? Don’t act on those questions right now, just continue to ponder them. Wait until she stations direct on November 16th to move forward with your decision.

Also, on November 16th, Mercury will station retrograde in Sagittarius. This stimulates our minds higher beliefs. Our mind is being asked to look at our Souls (higher) perspective. One needs to look at the greater purpose of what our soul desires. Trying to think your way through your purpose is difficult now, so just accept what comes to your mind and allow the process to unfold.

The North Node (South Node) also shifts signs on November 6th. The Nodes are points between the Sun and the Moon that give us direction. Since April 2017 the North Node in Leo gave us the opportunity to open our hearts to the vibration of love and through forgiveness. Once it shifts into the sign of Cancer we are focusing on our personal needs. It is a time of allowing our vulnerabilities to show. People will be highly sensitive to this vibration and one must incorporate compassion and empathy into their being.  We are nurturing the child within as we respond to others in our lives.  Read Full Article…

Inspiration: BEing is a Choice

“’Doing’ is a means to an end but ‘Being’ is a choice.” This quote came to me as I was preparing for a meditation this month. I thought it was important because it embodies what I have been teaching for years now. Things happen and we react to what is happening by ‘doing’ something to change it if we don’t like what is happening. Even when our heart is in the right place we are still manipulating what is happening in our lives or the lives of others. We may try to fix, change, heal – but we are ‘doing’ something to manipulate what is happening. Doing is just a way to change our outside world. We may do things from fear or from a place of love – however it is still ‘doing’ something on the outside in hopes to change how we feel about what is happening on the inside. The outside world is dictating to us how to respond to a given situation. And this is backwards!

’Doing’ is a means to an end but ‘Being’ is a choice.

What happens to us isn’t a choice – how we respond to it is. How we choose to ‘show up’ to the world is a choice. How we choose to BE in any given moment is a choice. The outside dictates our reactions only when we are unconscious and stuck in linear time – thinking about the past or future and not in the NOW moment. We can choose to respond to any situation out of Love and Compassion. We can choose to BE happy or be angry when someone does something we don’t like. We can begin our day setting an intention of how we want to feel or BE during the day and make a conscious effort to remain in that energy all day regardless of what happens around us – because we have a choice! We are the only one who can choose how to ‘show up’ in our lives.

Let me explain the bit about being unconscious and stuck in linear time. When something happens – good or bad – we/our brain (ego) automatically reacts to situations from our past experiences and our reactions are mostly unconscious. This is our brain’s way of compartmentalizing various responses and how we create patterns. Our brain believes we have already ‘defined’ our experiences and our emotions and sees each event as similar to another event so our brain automatically responds the same way as it did in the past. This is typically where we get stuck – because we have responded to betrayal or an accident or pretty much anything that has ever happened to us in the same way as we have before. It is why we see the world the way we do. It is part of our ‘story’ and that story continues unconsciously until we begin to see the world for the first time again … as we stand in the present moment BEing fully conscious. Then and only then can we choose how we want to respond in any given situation. And also be aware that there is a choice in how to respond.

What happens to us isn’t a choice – how we respond to it is.

Oct 2018 Newsletter: Understanding Failure and Responsibility

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: Venus Retrograde October 5th to November 16th, 2018

In a year of opening our heart chakra we need to look at all aspects that has us in a place of not loving fully. Venus incorporates our relationship with other people, our relationship that we have with our self, and our relationship that we have with money (which is really about our personal values and beliefs). There are a couple of ways this energy can manifest. When we look at love it is a higher vibrational emotion. Venus can often trigger emotional responses within the self, but not superficial emotions, deep emotions of love, as well as, its opposite. Whenever we are dealing with other people and how we relate, it really has nothing to do with the other person and in fact we are dealing with how we relate to our self. We are working with re-establishing a proper relationship with ourselves and that is simply mirrored out into our relationships with others. Do you respect yourself? You will find the answer to that simply by attracting people who dis-respect you. Do you love who you are, flaws and all? You will notice that in your relationships if others are constantly judging your flaws and pointing that out to you. Anything you notice about your relationship energy that you do not like is simply a mirror of how you may not notice you are relating to yourself. Venus retrograde in Scorpio will show you who and what have outlived their purpose in your life. Typically, when this takes place, relationships will come to an end. If not a complete ending, then they will transform or change on some level, so that a deeper connection or bond can be made. Any relationship that makes it through a Venus retrograde in the sign of Scorpio and Libra, will be made stronger, or become a more authentic reflection how you are relating to yourself.

If we look to our relationship with money under the Taurus (personal values and beliefs) rulership. What deadwood do you need to release? The house of Scorpio is ruled by several factors; death, transformation, rebirth, other people’s money, loans, and taxes. When Venus stations retrograde in its opposite ruling sign, loans may be overdue, and the stress is weighing on you in some way. There is a possibility of finding a solution to your current financial wows, the key to remember is do not make them any worse. Focus on a plan that will ensure your ability to take back your power by not overspending at this time. When spending, ask yourself “Is there any value in your current purchase?” If not, then it is best if you focus on paying back what it is that you owe.

New purchases are not suggested especially if they are a major ticket item. Instead really contemplate the value that you bring to the world, and the lessons you are learning with your current financial situation.

Keep in mind if you are feeling low energy, or lower vibration emotions, than this is all a part of your re-evaluating your worth out in the world. There is an opportunity to find a sense of balance once Venus stations direct in the sign of Libra.

Make sure you take the time to ponder your current feelings around love and value

Inspiration: Failure and Responsiblity

This month’s inspiration came again from Emmanuel Dagher and my beginning work with Peace Mother Geeta Sacred Song. I think about many concepts in my mind as I grow on this journey. Last month I touched on Failure in Feelings vs Emotions. Since then the Fear of Failure has become a theme in my work. This is always a sign about the importance of something entering my life. And I pride myself on being a Leader by Example. When I go through something I know I can assist others. So the Fear of Failure is one of our deep core fears that can be responsible for blocking us from Thriving in this life. Plus: Responsibility is something I have examined many times – as I knew that this term “responsibility” carried a heavy weight. Emmanuel in our last Healing Session from Club Miracles shared that Lack of Prosperity often is because we feel too much “responsibility” in our lives and this ‘heaviness’ is closely related to our Fear of Failure.

Fear of Failure is one of our deep core fears that can be responsible for blocking us from Thriving in this life.

Let’s look at this concept of responsibility. When we feel a responsibility towards something or someone we feel obligated and can feel guilty or shame when we don’t measure up or perceive ourselves as a ‘failure’! I remember working at the Government and feeling the heavy weight of ‘responsibility’ towards colleagues, staff, clients and society as a whole. Then I would examine my anxiety around the responsibilities toward family obligations and even cleaning (as I have allergies with dust so cleaning would create other problems). This concept I had over ‘responsibility’ was way too dense and heavy energetically. I would begin to feel anxious at any hint of responsibility … until I figured it out and then I began to understand that it was my perceptions of responsibility that was to blame and not my work, family and home that was the problem. And I thought I had shifted it; clarified my relationship with responsibility. However, when Emmanuel was sharing our perceptions around financial freedom and that it is our fear of responsibility that is causing the blocks – I remembered my earlier understandings and realized that responsibility still plays a HUGE role in my fear around financial freedom. I look at Income Tax and specifically HST as a block – which is a responsibility that I don’t want.  However I also feel responsible to my clients, my listeners and the audience of my website. When something goes wrong I feel responsible for it. Read More…

Inspiration: Emotions & Core Fears

Like everyone I am always trying to better myself or ‘Grow Up’ as Tom Campbell would say. And one of the things I do is partake in Emmanuel Dagher’s Club Miracles where we have a live healing meditation each month. This past month the healing meditation was on core fears which Emmanuel believes are Fear of being alone, Fear of Failure, Fear of losing something (death), and Fear of the Unknown. He also looked at how our emotions are just our mind/ego’s way of distracting us from our deeper core fears that our unconscious believes are too painful.

So let’s consider this: every time we react out of anger, frustration, pain, sadness, guilt, shame or despair etc. we are actually suppressing a deeper core fear. For example, I, like many women, struggle with sabotaging my health and weight and after reading Jessica Ortner’s best-selling book: The Tapping Solution for Weight Loss and Body Confidence (on sale right now) I was able to identify with the deep shame women often feel who are overweight because we all are told how it is our lack of willpower and how we sabotage ourselves to get where we are (she discloses some deep truths in this book that are hard to accept as it reveals such painful truths). I mean we are where we are because we choose to be that way, right? However, taking it a step further: that betrayal I felt and the eating I have done to distract myself from a betrayal I perceive (whether it is personal to me or through reading or streaming movies), is actually suppressing a deeper core fear … or four. After listening to Emmanuel’s meditation the last piece fell together. I have felt like a failure, which blocks me and I feel alone.

every time we react out of anger, frustration, pain, sadness, guilt, shame or despair etc. we are actually suppressing a deeper core fear

I always understood the Fear of being alone: that abandonment aspect has been a core pattern that I have identified for most of my life. However what I didn’t see was that underneath this fear – or attached to this fear – is the Fear of Failure. I could identify with the story that has been a prime focus in my life around abandonment and betrayal (which has run deep and it was through reading Jessica’s book I could identify with how the betrayal originally settled in around food) but I never felt like a failure or that core fear never felt that strong until I read her book and followed up with Emmanuel’s meditation. I love that when we truly search for an answer the Universe will grant it with whatever will resonate with you best to fully integrate your learning. Read More…

June 2018 Newsletter: Living with Filters

Happy Solstice!

Summer is upon us. At least it has been for the past couple of weeks. Have to Love warmer weather and lots of Sun! This month Mars goes retrograde and why not take some time out and just enjoy the summer? Without the natural drive Mars can give us, let’s just have some fun this summer?

Tom Campbell, one of my favorite interviews, is creating history! He is proving we live in a Virtual Reality and the implications are going to change the way we view the world. We did an interview this week where we discussed his KickStarter Campaign to raise money to complete the experiments necessary. We all have enjoyed Tom’s wisdom over the past 9 years I have been interviewing him. Support this momentous research.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month: 

Nancy was unable to give us her next newsletter, so check her blog over the next few days to a week to get June’s Universal Sky Blog.

Inspiration: Filters of Fear or Love?

Last month we discussed “expectations and attachments” and how they impact our enjoyment of life through keeping us stuck in how we respond to situations and people. Through this I shared that we all have filters on how we view the world. We often find it difficult to comprehend how a certain filter, such as the feelings of abandonment, insignificance, not being enough, being unlovable or being unappreciated can impact how an event is perceived in our lives. And the reality is that we all have these filters of fear! Our filters impact how we interpret and view the world. Our filters block us from experiencing the Truth and BEing Open to Love where we would have no filters.

How do these filters come to be? We would have chosen to work through certain patterns, beliefs and fears with our Soul Group prior to coming to this life. Whether you believe in having one life or multiple, we are still connected to the larger consciousness system or Source or the Universe or God in a way that our Spirit is connected to a higher power. This allows us to have a support system – our Soul Group – that works with us to grow our consciousness or evolve our spirit. To do this we offer to work with individuals who will assist us to grow and evolve. We choose a certain view on the world as part of this growth process. This view is how we see the world. That is why when things happen we often default towards a certain belief. The default positions are the  filters that are prevalent throughout our lives and we may not even be conscious of how these filters impact our lives.

Let’s look at how our filters work. Since it is something I have worked with most of my life I can offer ‘abandonment’ as an example. When your core filter is around abandonment it makes you see abandonment in most areas of your life. When a friend, family or situation happens we often view it through this filter. We see a break-up as abandonment, someone upset or angry as abandonment, someone passing away as abandonment, financial difficulties as abandonment, job challenges as abandonment – do you see how ubiquitous it can become? When we are in a relationship we filter everything that happens as abandonment and this fear changes the relationship. The problem is that our partner will have a whole other filter with which they see the world. And each person believes what they see to be the truth: that their perceptions are what they are seeing in reality. However, they are seeing the world through a filter or even several filters.

May 2018 Newsletter: Expectations and Attachments

Happy 1st Long Weekend of the Summer!

So it may not quite feel like summer yet?? We got our first taste today, with temperatures in the 20’s (70’s Fahrenheit). I have a feeling that we are all uphill beginning today. This May brings a special energy with it. Do you feel it? Fresh and expansive. All the stagnant energies of April with the Mercury Retrograde period are behind us and things seems to have opened up.

This month I look at our expectations that can definitely inhibit our lives by recreating patterns and creating difficulties within our relationships. Tom Campbell and I also looked at this briefly with our latest interview which you can watch or listen to here.

The only BIG shift this month is when Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus (May 15th) which hasn’t been in this sign since 1934. There are some possibilities that may occur during this period, last time a major war broke out since it was there until 1942 – Nancy believes that we may experience or are already in a financial war. What does this mean for us? Remember change happens within US. Focus on our own growth and on what we want – then let the Magic Unfold.

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

The month starts with the Sun in the sign of Taurus (April 19th) giving everyone the ability to focus on their practical and tangible reality.  It places emphasis on our personal values and beliefs as we focus on WHAT we love.

We will be officially out of the Mercury retrograde shadow period on May 4th.  So clear thinking and clear communications can be expected.  We are asked to ground our thoughts as Mercury moves into the sign of Taurus (May 13th).
The New Moon in Taurus (May 15th), is a time of realization around what it is that you are desiring to create in life.  Those creations must be realistic in nature.

A big shift is happening as the planet Uranus moves into the sign of Taurus (May 15th).  Uranus surfs through a sign for approximately seven years.   It is coming out of the sign of Aries (awakening to the authentic self) and moving into the sign of Taurus.  As Uranus moves through the sign of Taurus we can see changes on a global level.  There will be new laws or rules governing finances that slip under the radar.  We have already noticed the big hype in BitCom.  I truly don’t understand that particular financial situation but, one can be assured that new legislation will definitely be put into place governing this type of technology (Uranus) money (Taurus).  When Uranus was in the sign of Taurus from 1934 to 1942, there were lots of financial legislation’s that were put into place (for example, in the United States there was the establishment of the Security Exchange Commissions , the creation of Social Security and the establishment of the Works Progress Administration and in 1934 Canadian Parliament passes the Bank of Canada Act).  If you keep your eye on the financial markets, there will be all kinds of legislation and new laws governing banks and financial markets.  So with new financial markets hitting the internet by storm, I am almost certain there will be legislation’s to govern that market. read more…

Inspiration: Expectations and Attachments

We have all heard that we have Infinite Possibilities available to us as long as we can let go of expectations and are unattached to the outcome. Have you ever created a perfect moment? Have you ever connected to your Bliss where the Universe can’t help but reward you with feeling Love and Joy?

We sometimes connect to the Flow of the Universe and feel Love and Accepted but what about those times when we are really attached to an outcome like when a bill comes that we weren’t expecting and we can’t pay it? What about those times when we have expectations on how a day will unfold because of how days like this have unfolded in the past? Like on Thanksgiving with our family – those who have good experiences with their family expect a fun day – those who expect lots of petty fights and arguments to break out often have our fears reinforced and what’s worse is we feel we are not enough. And lastly, what about those times when we are absolutely confident that we were treated poorly, were a victim or hurt by someone we love because of how we interpreted their actions or words?

Expectations and Attachments create so much harm to us and we often aren’t even aware of it happening. We tend to create expectations and attachments quickly and easily. It is similar to our judgments; we do it so quickly we don’t realize we have done it. And before we know it we are sliding down a slippery slope into stress and dis-ease. Why do expectations and attachments cause stress and dis-ease? Because our ego wants to be in control and when we aren’t in control we start to look for things we can do that will correct this and … down the spiral we go. The problem of course is we can never be in control – we can only BE in charge of how we respond – and that can only occur if we are in the moment and conscious.

Most of our expectations and attachments are unconscious; coming from our past experiences which, because of our expectations and attachments tend to repeat experiences in our present – and sometimes those repeat experiences are not the ones we really want . The only way to change this to allow us more opportunity to experience more of those perfect moments is for us to become more aware of ourselves and of what is happening around us. We have to BEcome more conscious of our everyday lives – our thoughts, our beliefs, our fears – and the reasons why we react to situations or people within our environment the way we do.

The question is what are your fears? What fear continues to push you to create these expectations and attachments? What are you striving to prove to yourself? Is it just the Ego that wants your expectations and attachments met? Read More…

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…

Jan 2018 Newsletter: Year of Mastery and Love

Happy New Year 2018!

I can’t believe 2017 is now closed and we step forward into another year.

2017 was a 10 year or a new beginning year that brought with it many changes and challenges. Were you able to create some exciting new beginnings? 2018 is an 11 year in numerology which is a master number making it a year of Mastery. It also is brought down to a 2 year (11) 1+1=2 which makes it about Love. 2018 as a 2 year has Love, connection, partnership, relationship, patience, sensitivity in a gradual progress whereas an 11, the double 1’s, create a vibration that embodies Divine Inspiration and making things happen with an intensity. It is a year to gain mastery over your life and understand the subtle framework of the Universe!

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

Nancy Arruda combines numerology, with tarot and astrology and I like that concept. Looking at tarot we bring in Justice, High Priestess, and unconsciously the Judgement card. Listen to our interview about the New Year! Read what Nancy has to say about 2018 and Jan

Inspiration: How will you Master 2018?

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).

When we set Resolutions we come from a place of doing. ‘Doing’ results in falling back into old patterns – especially if we haven’t changed any of our beliefs, fears or expectations – because we are trying to control, manipulate, change, fix or heal ourselves from this ‘doing’ state. This state doesn’t recognize our Being and Divine Self. Intentions, to me, are about connecting into how we ‘intend’ to feel and come from a state of BEing not doing. In my show with Tom Campbell, he suggests it isn’t what you DO rather how you do it. It’s who we are while we do it or how we are BEing.

When we write our Resolutions for the year we are attempting to ‘do’ something. And unless we come from our BEing level we aren’t likely going to make any lasting changes. We often review all the things wrong with our outer self and set goals such as weight-loss, health, fitness and addictions and look for ways to control, change or fix ourselves. We look at how we can approach our ‘problems’ differently to make lasting changes. However, 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 know our motivation and approach it understanding what the underlying cause is. This is where we need to dig deeper than just using our mental will to change. We have to figure out what the cause of the weight gain was initially, yes, from the beginning. Like in the act of stopping smoking we can use our will to lose weight however if the underlying cause is still present whatever we have tried to stop – or an alternative addictive behavior – will continue. And I am calling this underlying cause ‘fear’. And so we ‘do’ things out of fear rather than ‘Being’ – which is how we express ourselves – so if there is fear while we are BEing we can recognize it and change it to how we would rather BE. Read More…

Dec Newsletter 2017: Holiday Magic and Worthiness

Happy Holidays!

Can you believe it is the Holiday Season? Nov has ended with a lot of frustrations, I hope that this isn’t indicative of Mercury Retrograde that starts on Dec 3rd and stations direct on Dec 22nd! Just be prepared for anything this month. And find a way to Celebrate the Magic of the Christmas Spirit of Giving! And giving isn’t about giving Gifts, it is about Opening your Heart and Giving your full attention and Essence to all that you encounter. There is a strong source of Magic available to everyone as long as we are conscious of our “Worthiness” issues and don’t fall into depression and avoid everyone. Tom Campbell and I did a show on this topic this week and fingers crossed we will get a video up as well shortly. (part of the frustrations over the past week) My wish for everyone is to Open your Hearts and share the Holiday Spirit, Having a Magical Holiday Season! 

Our book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! It makes for a lovely gift, with 9 Powerful women offering a toolbox filled with ideas to help us move beyond our pre-conceived notions and limiting beliefs. Each reader can take a little from each of the contributors and craft the method of conscious creation that best works for you―with consistency, ease, and grace! Buy Yours Today!

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…

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.

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: 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.

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?

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.

June Newsletter 2017: From ME to Unconditional Love and Acceptance

Happy Solstice!

May has sailed by quickly and not without some drastic allergic reactions with added mold spores into the mix. What a wet and interesting Spring this has been! It seems that everything has been changing with regards to the summer forecast and how this new El Nino will unfold in our lives. From being an above average summer in regards to temperature to now being an above average in precipitation with average to below average in temperatures. I guess we will see how everything unfolds. But I for one am looking forward to the summer, a time to rejoice, swim, and connect with people (like me) who tend to hibernate during the cold winter months. Something makes us feel more free during the summer that I enjoy and take advantage of. Happy Solstice!! 🌞

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

We ended the month of May in a place of Duality as the New Moon transpired in the sign of Gemini (May 25).  Many people were feeling like they were stuck between two places.  Now, the energy has moved away, but I believe it is due to the fact that most of us are simply accepting that sometimes you need to just sit on the fence with one leg on either side.  I call this feeling one of being in suspension, like you are hovering between two realities or states of being waiting for the universal clues as to the direction it is asking you to move in.

As we move into June, the energy is changing.  The duality may still exist as the Sun continues its Journey through the sign of Gemini (until June 21).  Where the options are the choice to love (unite) or the choice to fear (separate).  Do you find yourself bouncing back and forth between love and fear?  It may be very evident in your life, a situation in which there are both feelings being triggered.  Personally, I am focusing on the love dynamic as it feels so much better.  How does one choose their focus?  It is simply a matter of WILL.  Every time the fear rises into your being, simply state to yourself that you are safe and are choosing the path of love.  Use your will and power of thought to change your focus consciously.  I am not saying ignore the undesirable feelings, but simply try flip them into what you love or desire.  This is a muscle that one must keep working on with in their mind, and eventually that muscle has strength and the power to shift your response to what is transpiring.

On June 9th we experience the Full Moon in Sagittarius (at 9:09 AM EST).  This particular Full Moon is asking everyone to look at their need for survival.  Saturn is conjunct the Moon, opposite the Sun and one may feel the restrictions of Saturn in Sagittarius, but one interesting thing to note, is on that day, Jupiter (Sagittarius Ruling planet) will station Direct (at 10:02 AM EST).

I find it rather significant that this is happening on the same day.  Jupiter stationed retrograde on February 6th and as it did, it brought with it a symbol of “spiritual rebirth”.  A part of the self was required to be transformed on some level and during its retrograde phase and people were transforming at unprecedented levels.  While Jupiter transits the sign of Libra, the focus is on balance, harmony, and relationships.  Can you see how your relationships have shifted since then?  Can you identify with how you have evolved in your relationship sector of life?  Jupiter is the planet of luck, abundance, and grandiose experiences.  Hopefully, as he stations direct one can feel the abundance of the Universe working with them.  One can see in their life how the growth that Jupiter brings has assisted them with their own internal and spiritual growth process.  Of course, after a period of growth comes rest.  The need to relax becomes heightened as this planet moves forward.  Remember this was a period of internal growth (not necessarily external growth, which is what most people desire to see in their life.)

Then there is a pause, not a lot of astrological energy is taking place (outside of the inner planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars doing their day to day stuff).

The Sun will shift into the Sign of Cancer on June 21st, shifting our focus to our foundations in life.  The need for emotional security kicks into gear as the Summer begins!  The New Moon in Cancer takes place on June 23rd (at 10:30 PM EST).  This is always somewhat of a powerful New Moon as it is in its ruling sign of Cancer.  One may feel tested at this time, but it is my suggestion not to force anything into being, rather allow the creative process to unfold naturally.  This is the time to tap into the Creative Mind and allow yourself to explore the reigns of uncharted consciousness as you embrace new responsibilities that appear upon the path you are on!

Inspiration: From ME to Unconditional Love and Acceptance

This past month I have been very aware and focused on something that I have been discussing with Tom Campbell (and others) and writing about for the past couple of years: How to come from a place of unconditional love and acceptance. We often are too focused on how others affect us or when something happens; we unconsciously look at how it impacts us. An example would be when interacting in a relationship and there is a conflict we automatically look at what this conflict means to us. We take whatever the conflict is personally and we react personally and this means we react from a place of ego. We allow what is happening to trigger us emotionally and we perceive it from a pattern that has created a story in our lives.

Let’s give this even more meaning and look at it from a pattern of abandonment as this is a trigger most people understand. So we are engaged in a conversation with another person – and this could be any relationship although an intimate relationship often has more of a charge to it – and one of us gets triggered first and that often leads to the other person also getting triggered. Now we first have to understand that both of us have grown up having different experiences which leads to having different triggers and that leads to having different stories that we have created. Our experiences define our lives by the age of seven. By the age of seven we do not have an emotional understanding of our experiences and we don’t consciously understand what is happening to us. However our brain likes to clump our experiences together so that our ego can protect us from being hurt. Let’s understand that by the age of seven nothing is fully processed and our pain and fears are very uncomfortable. We make assumptions and beliefs from these experiences and this leads to a story being created around abandonment that may not even make logical sense at this later point in our lives. However this experience continues to trigger us because since the age of seven we have had plenty of experiences that have been clumped together that have added to our understanding of abandonment. We have had friends, family,  partners and co-workers and others leave us in some way that we have interpreted as abandonment – even when it is just an interpretation or perception that they have left ‘us’.

Now, moving forward 20, 30, 40, or 50 years and we engage in a relationship that is triggering someone else or still triggering ourselves. We unconsciously interpret it as abandonment. We get triggered or we trigger someone else who then triggers us and we react. We react the same way as we did when we were seven. We might not have a temper tantrum like we did when we were two but the emotional impact, the emotional charge, is the same. We perceive this as something happening to us personally. We experience this event as the same ‘story’ we have created and we react mostly unconsciously from a place where this hurts. We react!

If we are on a path that is evolving towards love this requires us to not take anything personally – especially things that impact us negatively – but rather for us to move into a place of unconditional love and acceptance.  To evolve towards love we must consciously understand and see when we want to first react and then, instead, take charge of our personal view of the situation. We want to become aware of our emotions. When we are with another and we are sharing a conversation with that person or even sharing space and they get upset we typically go into survival mode and our ego looks to justify, blame or judge who is right or wrong. When someone does something we don’t like or want, we automatically add this experience to our story and our ego is in charge. We have to understand that every single person has their own story that was created by the age of seven. Everyone has their own issues, their own ego, their own pain, fear and suffering that is ‘real’ to them.

We have to be able to ‘see’ our automatic reactions as what they are. Then we have to be able to ‘see’ the person in front of us as also having an automatic reaction. And this is where it gets interesting; this is when we can make a choice. The first choice is: do I come from a place of ‘me’ and how is this affecting me? Do I automatically justify, blame and/or judge this situation or person as abandoning me? Do I add this to my story of abandonment? Or can I step outside of my initial response and make another choice? Can I then look from a place of ‘other’ and see that no matter what is said or done that this person actually believes they are trying to persevere through their pain and their own abandonment story? They are trying to do what is ‘right’ for them and it is just ‘their’ story when they get triggered. They are justifying, blaming and judging the situation based on their own experiences and story created by the age of seven.

On this path towards evolving towards love we can become more conscious by knowing that whenever we are triggered or feeling uncomfortable that this is just a reaction to a story or experience we had in the past. Then we can really ‘see’ and hold space for another while we are with them. We can create a safe space of consciousness and acknowledge that when someone reacts it really has nothing to do with us and instead of reacting to our emotions, we can allow those emotions to get provoked without our reactions or these emotions getting in the way. We can learn a great deal about the other person when we don’t go into reaction mode with them. We can change our story and stop or heal our unconscious reactions. Plus, once we can hold space and BE from a place of consciousness we can see the “other’s” fears and triggers. We can sit with them and not feel our own pain and fear. We can stop the pattern or our reactions and come from a place of ‘truth’ as we understand that both the pattern and/or our reactions are triggered and our reaction and the other person’s reactions are not rational but from a perspective of a young child who doesn’t understand. This gives space for everyone to come from an authentic place and not automatically react. It offers a ‘safe’ place, something that not everyone has experience with. Let’s give them a safe place. It will be good for all of us.

My focus on choosing not to be triggered by myself or others this month was a wonderful opportunity for me to understand this concept from a place of expansion and awareness. It was an opportunity for me to see how others can get triggered because they are only coming from a ‘me’ place. These experiences have allowed me to quiet my anxiety and quietly hold authentic space for another person to BE and for me to see the bigger picture and move towards my evolution towards Love!  You may want to take this upcoming month and focus on the same thing and see how your understanding can expand. Perhaps creating a ‘trigger journal’ where you write down every day what has triggered you and see if you can chose to not get embroiled in the emotion but rather observe it and see it from a perspective of unconditional love and acceptance. Happy Awareness!

May Newsletter 2017: Happiness – Conscious Relationships

Happy Victoria & Memorial Day!

What was last month like for you? Because last week I really didn’t know where I wanted to go with my Blog nor my interview on Apr 25th with Tom Campbell. However I had a few areas that were showing up within my readings with different authors who’s interviews are coming up (like Paul Selig – should be a fabulous interview in June) and from my interactions with some of my followers. So I had my interview with Tom and things really flowed during our interview around ‘happiness’ and ‘conscious relationships’.

April felt like a strange month of confusing energies, which is why I asked. However, near the new moon on the 26th of April things seemed to shift. A gentler energy emerged and what seemed like confusing energies changed into expansive and opening energy. May feels like a new beginning and both Canada and the US have celebrations this month (albeit different weekends) that usually mark the beginning of Summer! Let’s learn to Play more this year and enJOY the gentler and expansive energies available to us.

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

As we enter into May, Mercury is still retrograde!  Everyone may still be feeling the intensity of miss-communication and computer issues, but hopefully that will not last long.  Mercury will station direct on May 3rd at 24 degrees of Aries 15 minutes.  This direct motion is bringing us to the revelation of new possibilities.  The key is to be open and infuse faith into all that is beginning a new for you.  Mercury’s post shadow period ends on May 21st.  During this time, we are given the opportunity to fully alight with our highest aspirations and our personal values and beliefs.

The Full Moon in Scorpio takes place on May 10th.  The Scorpio moons are often viewed as release moons; which can be rather emotional for some people.  We need to release or clear what is no longer serving us.  This particular one is asking you to clear what is stopping you from attaining inner freedom.  One may discover that others may not agree with your particular decisions.  But at this time, one must assert their own values, no matter what the cost.  (Keep in mind, intention is key).  We are speaking to the values of the individual as it speaks to their personal values and beliefs that bring them to the place of proving their individual nature.

Mars, (Scorpios ruling planet) will square Neptune on May 11th.  This may create some indecisiveness or confusion around what you are honouring within the self.  This aspect can also leave you feeling like you have a lack of energy or you may feel physically weak and tired.

As we approach May 17th, we can not take on the responsibilities of others.  It is up to each individual to do what they need to do for themselves.  You may feel challenged with setting boundaries which can ultimately lead you to letting go of ideas of the past so that you can adopt a new belief system.  Again, be open as you walk what may feel like a circular path to valour.

On May 19th, Saturn trine Uranus stimulates a sense of new excitement.  You are still required to infuse responsibility as the new and exciting concepts appear.  Breakthroughs are imminent, so get ready to move in new directions as you embrace the opportunity to delve into exciting new actives.

On May 25th, the New Moon takes place in the sign of Gemini.  It has us springing into action!  Taking action is completely up to you, but that is what it is inspiring us to do.  It is suggested that we tap into some repressed feelings and root emotions.  The purpose is to understand that we can reach beyond any established forms or ways of BEing.

Also on that day, just before the New Moon Jupiter trine Neptune allows you to feel at one with the world.  BEing in a place of peace and tranquility is possible if you can tap into your creativity.  Detachment is a key component in attaining the desired alignment with your authentic inner nature which allows you to actively participate in peak experiences.

May 29th, Mars opposite Saturn is asking you to access your self-control as you focus on of resolutions to what challenges you at this time.

Inspire to be the best you can BE during this month of clarity and action, as you continue to connect and align with your divine nature!  enJOY!!!

Inspiration: Happiness – Consciousness of Relationships

The issues that were arising were around our relationships and how we continue to justify our fears by looking at the ‘other’ instead of understanding that we are responsible for everything that happens in our lives. We continue to worry, get angry, and justify our reactions because of someone else. It isn’t easy to authentically see that our ‘unhappiness’ is not because of someone else but because we have a fear that makes us feel insecure, unheard, insignificant or abandoned. It appears clear to us that these people or things that happen are why we are unhappy and we don’t remember that every event is really an opportunity for our own growth. Every time we have a negative response (or even a positive response) we are adding to our story of our lives. We are creating the definition that we have actualized as our identity. We want to blame our unhappiness on someone or something or believe we will only be happy when we can ensure that everyone else is doing what we need them to do. So we justify feeling unhappy because someone or thing has made us unhappy.

If we knew that the Larger Consciousness System (Tom’s wording for Higher Consciousness) is here to help us to grow. If we knew that everything has a purpose in our lives to help us grow towards ‘love’ then is it possible to allow all of these experiences to be ‘seen’ as opportunities to let go of our fears? And these experiences are also to acknowledge that no matter what happens the other person is truly being the ‘best’ they can BE and that they are not doing something to hurt us or create anxiety or pain in our lives. Rather it is our own perceptions that create the pain and unhappiness in our lives. It is our own Ego that needs to justify these experiences because it needs to be ‘right’ instead of happy.

We are ‘infinite Divine Beings’ that are having a human experience to Evolve our Consciousness towards Love. We grow when we are ‘relating with others’ and it is only when we can let go of this need to blame or accept the ‘story’ of our lives as a victim can we truly step out of our patterns of fear being perceived by us. If we truly desire to ‘grow up’ and get out of the pain and unhappiness we have established as who we are then we have to begin accepting unconditionally that the pain and unhappiness isn’t coming from events or others but from our own fears within; our own beliefs and our own story of who we believe we are!

We have just forgotten who we are. We aren’t our fears. We aren’t this ego identity that we ‘believe’ is who we are. We are not just a child, parent, spouse, an education or an occupation etc. that we think about when someone asks us who we are or what we do. We are a ‘Divine Being’ who has chosen to incarnate as a Human Being to evolve towards love. We are not separate yet we have individuated consciousness to ‘Remember’ who we are and to choose to expand our consciousness towards unconditional acceptance and love of Self and ‘others’. We are more than our experiences and our fears.

Our relationships are our mirrors to understand our own consciousness. We are allowing our stories to trigger and dictate our unhappiness and add this unhappiness to our story with all the “what’s and why’s” that the ‘other’ person does to hurt us, instead of working on changing OUR story and changing our fears that create our story and unhappiness.

Instead we focus on each situation as a separate event that continues to justify our ‘story’: reappearing as a pattern. This belief we hold about who we are is just a fabrication that confirms our fears. Let me give an example: a person we have a relationship with says something that triggers us, out of their own fear they say something that makes us believe they are betraying us, abandoning us or alluding to the fact that we aren’t significant enough to… (you fill in the blank). It may be a fear that someone isn’t being honest and upfront with you, or maybe someone is appearing aloof and distant, like they don’t care. The ‘mirror’ we are meant to understand is that this is ‘our’ fear and we haven’t shifted it if we can still justify BEing unhappy or blaming another. We instead just take this experience and add it to our ever increasing ‘story’ of who we believe we are.

So how does this relate to ‘Happiness’? Well, like everything in this life, we tend to focus on what we don’t want instead of BEing happy inside or allowing our Divine Essence to express itself, we are allowing our fears to continue to dictate our story; our unhappiness. We can’t seek ‘happiness’, it has to BEcome our intention to Evolve towards Love. It is only through our intention to grow that we will uncover that our ‘happiness’ has been here all along. We have the ‘choice’ to examine our fears and accept these fears as opportunities to mature and BEcome the Love that we already are. Our ‘happiness’ isn’t something that is ‘out’ there, but it is who we are as Divine Beings.

Learning through our relationships: having conscious experiences when our fears present themselves are the only way we can experience conscious relationships, experience Love and remember who we are. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to BE happy and have conscious relationships. I’m finding it increasingly difficult to NOT see the Divine within and experiencing more compassion and acceptance (even when I have epic failures) with mySelf. Let’s choose to initiate these changes by remembering who we are; Divine Beings having a human experience.

April Newsletter 2017: Understanding Our Choices

Happy Easter!

Spring is definitely here, although winter has tried to hold on a few times.  We have quite a few planets in Retrograde this month, fortunately Venus will go direct on the 15th, although it is not before Saturn on the 6th and Mercury on the 9th, which is added to Jupiter which doesn’t go direct until June 9th. So, be gentle especially for the first couple of weeks this month!

Spring is a time for New Beginnings and shedding the winter energy to move into Awakening and Newness. The day is getting longer, our energy is lighter and we all desire to shake off the winter (not that it has been all that bad of a winter) and ‘spring’ into new things. Whether that is clothing, relationships, work or home, we all want to do a ‘spring’ cleaning and make way for new inspiration and possibilities!

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

We start April with Venus still being in Retrograde.  It has been an interesting retrograde cycle thus far.  Venus moved into Retrograde on March 4th at 13° of Aries.  On April 2nd, she shifts back into the sign of Pisces altering the dynamic of the energy before she stations direct on April 15 at 26° of Pisces.  This particular retrograde cycle may have triggered many fears, which may have manifested as anxiety or frustration.  When operating from a place of fear one is powerless.  However, the lesson of Venus in Aries is to own your power, and making choices from a place of power, not from a place of fear.  As she shifts into the sign of Pisces on April 2 the dynamic changes, for it is no longer about making a choice, it is about sitting with a choice that was made and reflecting on the outcome.

The reflection process continues as Saturn stations retrograde on April 6 at 27° of Sagittarius.  Saturn retrograde is stimulating restructuring.  What do you need to restructure in your life?  There is an opportunity to heal the structures in your life when Saturn squares Chiron on April 30.  There are many things that people may be focusing on restructuring or healing, but ultimately while in the sign of Sagittarius we are focusing on expressing our true self.  We are being asked to let go of emotional patterns which block us from being authentic.  Again, this aspect may stimulate a sense of introspection allowing one to ponder on past memories, relationships, or events that may have triggered pain in your life at some point in time.  Saturn will remain retrograde until August 25, 2017.  There is plenty of time to gain understanding into what you need to restructure your life.

On April 9, Mercury will station retrograde at 4° of Taurus, potentially showing us that nothing is permanent.  Again, we are being asked to turn inwards with our thought process.  One can activate internal questioning of personal values and beliefs.  The desire is to try and find a path to greater stability, security, or comfort.  But one must be open with their thought process.  Take the time to quiet the mind so that one can remember old ideas of worth that may have been forgotten, as they exist in the subconscious mind where the memories are stored.  Mercury will station direct on May 3 at 24° of Aries and as he does, one may be able to envision new possibilities.

Pluto, the powerful transformer will also station retrograde on April 20 at 19° Capricorn.  One will have the potential to look around and see what needs to be transformed within your their life.  It is easy to see what needs to transform in society, but it is usually more difficult to dive into the depths of your Soul and face its shadows.  Pluto will station direct on September 28 at 16° Capricorn and hopefully this retrograde cycle has given you the ability to release your inhibitions, to set yourself free and to express yourself beautifully.

On April 28, the North Node will shift into the sign of Leo, activating aspects of the self that each individual needs to tap into (over the course of the next year until November 7, 2018).  The North Node is the path that we are following, the path we are being asked to walk.  In the sign of Leo, one is being asked to express their individuality.  To follow their hearts desires.  We are moving through our fears before this energy transpires so that our fear can be released from the heart center.  Love and fear can not exist in the same place at once.  You are either in a space of love or you are in fear.  When we activate our hearts desire, ultimately it is better if you are focusing from a place of love.  If you activate your hearts desire while in a place of fear, you are not operating from the point of power.  One must strengthen their willpower, tap in to their enthusiastic nature, and emanate self-confidence while taking risks and having fun.  This is what the North Node in Leo will teach us over the next year.

In the month of April, acknowledge your fears, stand up to them with courage, restructure and align with your truth, heal the past, clear the mind, transform your perspective and stand in your power!  It may sound like a lot, but in truth, it is all connected to one state of BEing!

Inspiration: Understanding Our Choices

Understanding our choices is the topic I want to explore this month. This month has been filled with choices: some I found were sabotaging and others empowering. I filled my days during this Venus retrograde with new choices and becoming conscious of my sabotaging efforts as a result of those choices.

I have been preparing for my interview with the Hulnick’s on their new book “Remembering the Light Within” which has been very confirming of my work over the past few years and my work with this material brought up some of the key points I am working with in this article. These key points were further anchored through me and my clients in recent weeks.

How can we see that all the things that are apparently happening ‘out there’ are really just part of the ‘story’ we’ve created about ourselves and our situation? How can we see that all the ‘things’ out there are actually ‘neutral’ and we are the ones who choose to get upset with – or excited by – ourselves or others? And how do we see that we end up ‘judging’ ourselves or others from a place of EGO instead of the opportunity to come from a place of ‘acceptance’? It is always one or the other: judgment or acceptance! Unfortunately judgment seems to be ingrained in our behaviors, beliefs and actions and it is accepted that we judge ourselves or others because it is unconscious.

In their new book, “Remembering the Light Within” Dr’s Mary and Ron explain that the “thoughts you project and the story that you’ve created about yourself become a powerful attractor field that draws to you experiences that validate and thus reinforce your beliefs and your resulting story.” I’m going to give an example that will relate to this idea.

We have discussed in many blogs the concept of ‘our story’ and this story typically relates to one or more of our three basic core fears: fear of the unknown; fear of abandonment or separation; or fear of unworthiness. We often experience our core fears – and therefore stories – in our relationships. So someone leaves us or betrays us. This is our perception of what is happening which is a judgment. And this abandonment or betrayal happens because we have already established this story from our past experiences. So we are choosing to react judgmentally instead of seeing each event as neutral. We are justifying our reaction by saying something like “I’m unhappy because…”. It keeps the ‘story’ alive and then events are all perceived within the story. People do something and we are justifying what is happening as our story and core belief.

When someone leaves they aren’t leaving us. When something happens that feels like a betrayal it is because we have judged it through our experiences and story as a betrayal. Those people are just reacting from their own experiences and story; their own fears. Their issues very likely have nothing to do with us. But our ego can’t see it that way. We are too attached to our story and how we feel within the situation and we justify what is happening as what is happening to ‘us’.

Our choices come around recognizing that we are choosing to either add them to our story and judge the situation as ‘happening’ to us or … we are choosing love. And when we choose love this is when we can reframe our issues as blessings. We can take responsibility for everything that happens because it doesn’t happen ‘to us’ it is a neutral happening and we can know it has a Divine Purpose in our lives; that all of our struggles and challenges are opportunities for Blessings and healing.

A point that the Hulnick’s make is that “unresolved issues aren’t in the way; they are the way”. They offer us an opportunity to heal. How empowering is it to know that each struggle or challenge is helping us grow and heal? “Remembering the Light Within” like other great teachings suggests that these ‘challenges and opportunities’ will guide us to remember we are already whole and we just believe these things that are ‘happening’ to us show where we are ‘perceiving’ we are not whole but separate from Source.

When we can take responsibility for everything in our lives we move into a place of acceptance and we choose how we want to BE inside. We can choose to BE happy regardless of what is happening outside of us and know that when we want to blame or justify our reason for being unhappy that it is our own ‘stuff’ coming up as a gift for us to heal. Instead we often seek acknowledgement from others and share all of our problems in hopes to confirm our justification for being upset. We are allowing the outside to determine how we feel instead of choosing how we want to feel and letting that be how we respond to life.

Can you understand your choice in every moment is to choose Love, Compassion, and Acceptance that we are already Whole, Awake and connected to the Divine Source. We are a Soul having a human experience and our True Essence is LOVE!

Mar Newsletter 2017: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

Happy Spring Equinox!

March may well bring an early Spring here in Toronto, as this past month has been the warmest Feb in history (or so I believe) and it appears our weather experts were wrong. LOL BIG surprise, our brief La Nina has somehow turned back into an El Nino? Not sure what that is saying about our environment? But it was a lovely surprise to have a sunny day that reached 64 F in Feb. Especially how dark it was in Jan.

Our eclipse season has ended, hope it was as easy as it suggested for you. I had some strange almost Mercury Retrograde experiences with my website and today with MailChimp (but that is site wide) when we aren’t in any difficult retrograde periods until the 4th when Venus goes retrograde for almost 6 weeks and Mercury goes retrograde April 9th. So be gentle with yourself this month and next. No use getting all frustrated over nothing.

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

Ah, the Month of March has arrived, and with that brings the renewal energy of the Spring time.  The scent of the moist soil as the tulips begins to veer above the earth’s surface.  The symphony of birds as they sing to the glorious, rising sun every morning.  The orange-chested robins hopping around on the ground as they search for food and nesting supplies.  The buds on the trees as they sprout for life sharing their vibrant green colors to create a new pallet upon the horizon.  Spring  is a time of renewal, new life and new beginnings!

2017’s ruling planet of growth and abundance, Jupiter, will aspect two outer planets as it continues its journey in the sign of Libra (relationships).  But Libra’s ruling planet, Venus will station retrograde at the beginning of the month.

On March 2nd, Jupiter opposite Uranus may stimulate a sense of excitement or a sense of fear within the self.  One must take some time to ponder on life, which allows you to tap into the creative and joyous responses to life’s process which will ultimately bring you to a place of inner fulfillment.  How do you experience your new found freedom that this aspect is bringing you?  If you listen to your inner self, you will find that excitement and fear almost feel the same, one gives us a sense opening, and the other is limiting!  Choose the experience that opens up your heart.

The vibration that everyone is wondering about this Month is the Venus Retrograde that is transpiring from March 4th to April 15th.  When we work with Venus, we are focusing on two things; our personal values & beliefs (which includes our personal resources and finances) and Love (which includes our relationships and beauty).  Quite often when we think of love we think of other people in our life, or the ones we may desire to have in our life. But the vibration of Love at this time is all around the self.  With Venus retrograding at 13 degrees Aries 08 minutes, we are tapping into a love of the self, the ability to embrace individualization as one blends the two polarized aspects of BEing; the yin and yang, the feminine and masculine.  Typically we embrace that aspect through the ritual of relationship, where man and woman joining together to create a union of souls.  But how can one create that union within the self?  Often we use our relationships as a stimulus or as a mirror, but it is not really about the other person, it is about you and how you manage that dynamic within the self.  For some their relationships might change, alter, or adjust, and for others you will be playing out a dance of where you need to affirm what it is that you truly value and believe in. This Venus retrograde may feel like a test, a test of love within the self, one that is asking you to define “Love” in your life and how you choose to share that with yourself and possibly others.

Look deep into the self and remember what the Beatles told us…  “All you need is love”.  If you are in love with yourself and your life, then your value is reflected there, in that point of LOVE!

The second Jupiter aspect is a little more challenging an it is happening at the end of the month when Venus is Retrograde.  On March 30th, Jupiter square Pluto will challenge your growth process.  Patience and tolerance is required to infuse the change that you desire in your life.  If you feel like you are struggling, then just let go of the struggle, stop trying to roll that big bolder up hill and instead just walk up the hill not pushing anything, but rather enjoy the scenery that is around you.  It is in that enjoyment that the bolder will make its way to where it needs to go and you will find yourself on top of the mountain effortlessly.  Use your inherited wisdom to transform your consciousness to one of plenitude!

Keep in mind that growth is still possible with this aspects, but sometimes when we deal with growth on a spiritual level, it can also seem challenging.  Remember as the butterfly leaves its cocoon, it struggles to free itself, but it is in that struggle that gives it the strength to fly!  Are you ready to fly?!

Inspiration: Healing through Dreams & Synchronicities

Seems like an odd direction for my thought process this month … however as I was preparing for a 21 day healing event with Emmanuel Dagher and Ziad Hashash – where I had to come up with the direction for this healing opportunity – I uncovered a series of what could be seen as unrelated events that I will say were synchronistic guidance from my Divine guidance system that happens to work in very unique ways. It’s like putting together pieces of a puzzle – at least when it comes to me hearing my own guidance. When it comes to offering guidance to others I am much clearer and precise. With me I tend to need many things to convince myself or find the thread that may assist me to be guided in the right direction.

The early morning began with a dream. Typically my dreams are in a helping manner and my reason for going to an event in my dreams is to help someone else. However the two people I went with in my dream in the early morning did not receive the initiation. Instead: I did. In my dream it was with an old teacher who I left because I uncovered that he was working with some very dark energies. However in this dream the initiation was a very powerful one around opening my Goddess connection to Sacred Sexuality and in the dream the old teacher and I began dating. When I awoke from the dream I remember feeling overwhelmed with love and knew something powerful had occurred in the dream time as well as possibly a forgiveness of old hurts. Then I listened to both meditations from Ziad and Emmanuel and something in Ziad’s meditation began the process of trying to understand my current health issue and was supported with Emmanuel’s core work.

Since July of last year, I’ve had some issues with a molar and what I thought would be a simple cavity filling (3rd time for this tooth) turned into a need for a root canal. However the infection never really went away so last Oct I had an infection that began to go septic and even though I did the ‘right’ things – antibiotics and antibiotic care then a series of holistic treatments to support my immune system – the abscess is still present. For some reason I had never looked up the significance of this tooth or asked my body what it needed.

So I finally did some research and found some fascinating information on teeth and root canals. One piece to the puzzle that I found was that this particular tooth was on never fitting in or feeling like an outsider. Now this didn’t become clearer until I began describing it in an interview I was doing with Jean Adrienne later that day. That’s when I realized that for the past couple of years I have been desiring a healthy relationship with someone I could share my life with. Given the dream that morning it clicked in place  that most of the men that I found – or found me – never really ‘got me’ and (wait for it)… unconsciously I felt like I couldn’t fit in. We strong, accomplished, spiritual teachers often intimidate men. So we look for strong men who are not easily intimidated by us to share our lives with.

However such men don’t tend to be in the Spiritual community. And once I find such men and they find out who I am they often get scared away. To me, obviously, I would rather be alone and happy (which I am) than compromise who I am. But there is obviously a belief that I have around relationships and not fitting into the ‘typical’ relationship. It is my belief and my story that creates this dilemma and not actually what is happening. I probably come off too strong in the beginning or don’t open up quick enough because I don’t trust that they will be able to accept who I am and I don’t trust that I am safe with them. So, my infection is confirming my belief that I don’t fit in. And the poor choices that I make show I am not quite as open as I had thought.

However, it doesn’t negate that I am happy the way I am right now. I have a successful home business doing everything I love! I set my own hours. I love where I live and the area I live in. I have the most precious gift in my newest kitten that has allowed me to open up differently. I honor my journey and do everything I can to heal my sacred wounds. I am truly happy. Yet I recognize when I sabotage different areas of my life and know that if I was truly ready and open I would be in a relationship!

My health has transformed over the past couple of years and now I only have a couple of areas that still require my attention – far fewer areas than 2 years ago. I also recognize that when it comes to one’s health you have to be very careful how you focus your attention! If there is pain you can’t heal it if that is where your attention goes. Which brings me back to relationships: if you still have outstanding beliefs (known or unknown) you won’t achieve what you desire most. I continued to put my attention on the areas that weren’t complete.

I am profoundly grateful to uncover an area that was unknown to me consciously which obviously my body was aware of. I recognize that everything works together to collaborate in this amazing journey we call life. I encourage you to challenge yourself to put the puzzle pieces of your life together and to celebrate the missing or broken pieces for those such pieces lead to greater awareness and opportunities of acceptance that allow us to see our wholeness and perfection. We truly are living in incredible times where we can see our Divinity and Wholeness as who we are. And I suspect that after my 21 days of healing I will see some beautiful changes within. Thank you Emmanuel and Ziad in advance for you have already gifted me with so much!

February is always Love Month on Intuitive Soul and as I pondered what I wanted to write this year, two very important signs came into my awareness. I watched “Arrival” and I prepared for my second interview with Linda Howe. Why are these important? In some ways they don’t have anything to do with love and in other ways they can shift your awareness of love completely. (Read article below)

We have two eclipses this month and Nancy Arruda will discuss below in What’s Up in the Universal Sky. Is anyone else exhausted? Emmanuel Dagher says we will feel a shift soon, I’m hoping to feel “The Spark is Back” soon! I’m also hoping that our Ground Hog will predict an early Spring, although, our winter hasn’t been all that difficult as much as no Sun Shine. I think that is why I’m so exhausted!?

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

As the saying goes… “All good things must come to an end!” Our several week of, “all planets in direct motion” comes to an end on February 6th as the planet Jupiter which represents,  luck, expansion and growth, stations retrograde at 23 degrees Libra 8 minutes.  I still think that 2017 is going to be much more exciting and rewarding then 2016 was, but the ease and push forward that many have been feeling will somewhat be brought to a halt.  It is time to look inwards to understand the growth process.  This particular retrograde is speaking to an inner transformation, which will have you developing your inner strength.  The transformation that transpires is one of spiritual development as we develop and create a new or stronger connection to our higher self.  Jupiter in Libra does create a strong desire to connect with people on a social level, but as it retrogrades one may feel like withdrawing from this dynamic.  The key is to focus on maintaining balance and peace as you allow yourself to reach into new territories of faith and trust.

This month there will be two eclipses.  Remember, eclipses are all about releasing what no longer serves your inner and outer realties.  We finish up with the final bit of releasing the Karmic Completion energy of 2016 with the Solar Eclipse on February 26 at 8 degrees of Pisces 12 minutes.  Before that happens, we do integrate the release that is necessary with the lessons of 2017 with the Lunar Eclipse at 22 degrees Leo 28 minutes on February 10th.

So we are a little mixed up, clearing the new energy, before clearing the old energy and in some way they are intertwining to bring us the ability of RELEASE before embracing the GIFT!

What is lingering on a Karmic level that you need to finally move forward with letting go of?  That is what the Pisces Solar Eclipse is asking us. Is there anything lingering from 2016 that you need to finally clear from your energy field?  What tasks can you perform now that allow you to walk away from situations or people that no longer serve your highest good?  Ponder that towards the end of the month, I am sure the Universe is going to show you what that is.

But if you recall, before you can even think about clearing that karmic residue of last years lessons, one must really take a look at their creative process.  You should also keep in mind the ego may have some challenges with this.  With the Solar Eclipse, we are looking at things that are stopping us from living life with an open heart.  Our heart chakra is going to poked and prodded as we process what the universe is showing us in regards to NOT living with an open heart.  There are many layers to understanding what is blocking us from living life that is filled with Love and Joy.  So keep your eyes open and keep your heart open, as you venture into the unknown reality of your heart chakra to see how you need to integrate forgiveness.  One can not forgive if one does not acknowledge or accept that forgiveness is a necessary part in the human dynamic of heart centered evolution.  Remember, we are always at choice; the choice here is to accept or not accept the quest the Universe is sending you on.

In the Month of February, start the spring cleaning early.  Let go, release, purge all those things that are stopping you from being in the place you desire at a heart center.  Most of all, tap into the LOVE that is available to everyone and spread the JOY through your open heart!

Inspiration: The Question of Love

In the movie “Arrival” I was completely enthralled with the last question Louise asks Ian: “If you could see the whole story of your life from start to finish would you change things?” Without giving away the movie this is the perfect question for all of us. If you knew your whole life story would you make different choices? Would you live life to the fullest, knowing that things will happen, but we can choose how we want to respond to them? We don’t have to Love differently just because we know that someone will leave or die! We can choose to embrace all the beauty and perfection that exists in this moment.

It made me think: just because someone is going to leave does it mean it was less significant or that it was a failure? We have a tendency to protect our heart believing our heart can be broken. We also tend to create addictions so that we don’t have to feel our discomfort. What if that wasn’t really why we were here? That it isn’t about the love we are able to hold onto but rather the capacity to love. What if everyone in our lives are here to assist us to expand our ability to open our hearts, to Love unconditionally and to know we are loved? This is what we all want anyway, to love and be loved. So why would we love less or feel less loved just because someone leaves? And why do we believe that once they leave we have to throw out everything that reminds us of that relationship?

This pondering led me to my second sign. I was preparing for Linda Howe’s interview about her book “Healing through the Akashic Records: Using the Power of Your Sacred Wounds to Discover Your Soul’s Perfection”. She talks about the purpose of people in our lives triggering our Sacred Wounds and that the role of the offender is to teach us to love unconditionally! Does it get more powerful than that?

So if we can see our whole life from start to finish and we knew about all the relationships in our life and we knew from our Soul’s Purpose it is about learning to love unconditionally would we change anything? Or could we just stop worrying about the length or whether this relationship becomes ‘the one’? Could we just enJOY every moment we have and LOVE?

To me this changes everything. I personally have gotten all caught up in my relationships: from friends to the friends who leave, to my romantic relationships or the lack thereof, to whether once I begin dating thinking of where this will go instead of just enjoying the time I get to spend with them. My ‘Sacred Wound’ is abandonment and although I have learned to stop taking things so personally it is still my Sacred Wound and it is still the primary concern I have when people stop communication with me. I still wonder what have I done wrong. Knowing that my Sacred Wound is really what I have chosen to help me love unconditionally definitely adds a new dimension to my life. Knowing that the friends and lovers in my life are here to help me love unconditionally is a very profound thought! Even the ones who appeared to betray or hurt me are actually still here to show me how to love unconditionally.

Think about the implications of this and the question of love. Love is! Love isn’t attached to a person, place or thing. It is the expression of our Soul. It is the expression of Source. If every encounter and every trigger of our Sacred Wound is really an opportunity to Love unconditionally what would that look like? And would we, could we, change each opportunity if we knew our lives from start to finish? Or is it a matter of how we choose to experience each moment and relationship? In “Arrival” the question was quite a bit more intense however and my questions arose because of how powerful this one question is.

Things will continue to ‘happen’ around us, relationships will come and go, but our capacity to love is unlimited. The question of love isn’t “Will it happen?”; it is “Can I love unconditionally?”

Love month isn’t just about romantic love, friendship or family love, it isn’t about the confusion around self-love, it is: can I love unconditionally? Can I release the need to only love when the right circumstances occur? Can I love knowing that this person can leave or die? Can I love without judgment? Can I look into another’s eyes and see the unconditional love they have within them? Can I know that they are in my life, whether for a long time or short time, to teach me about unconditional love?

I choose to say ‘YES’ but my Sacred Wound is still there and it may always be there but at least now I am knowing that it is there in the first place to help me Love Unconditionally. When can we let go of this need to change, fix, or heal our Sacred Wound and just BE … and loving unconditionally ourselves and others? And enJOYing the ever present moment regardless of how long it will last or whether or not it will hurt us later. I choose to see Love differently now. I choose to see my Sacred Wound differently now. I choose LOVE! How about you?

Jan Newsletter 2017: Resolutions and Sabotage

Happy New Year!

 

I want to wish everyone a Magical New Year 2017!

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!

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?

Dec Newsletter 2016 ~ Holidays and Gratitude

Happy Holidays!

happyholidaysintuitivesoul
I want to wish everyone a Magical Holiday Season!

As some of you are aware my good friend Jean Adrienne had a near-death experience that came from a life altering accident. From this experience she learned detachment and Gratitude. This is why my message this Holiday Season is about Capturing the Christmas Spirit In the Magic of the Holidays! Gratitude is all about connecting into the Spirit of the Holidays, the innocence of our childhood and BEing Open to the Miracles in our lives (big or small). I am Grateful for all of  YOU!

This is a big month astrologically speaking, Nancy Arruda and I discussed the events in our last show, the one I want to draw attention to is Mercury Retrograde as it will impact your Christmas Shopping and New Years Eve plans. Ensure you double check anything electronically done as Mercury is the trickster with anything electronic! More below.

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:

December, a time to connect with family as we embrace the spirit of giving and enjoy the festivities!

This particular December is packed full with astrological activity.  Such as; Chiron stationing direct on December 1st, allowing all of us to embrace their healing journey with HOPE!  Hope that comes from a place of innocence which stimulates feelings of warmth at the heart center.

The Full Moon in Gemini on December 3rd allows you to acknowledge the changes within your creative imagination.  I am mentioning the Full Moon in Gemini because Gemini’s ruling planet, Mercury will be stationing retrograde on December 19th.  (It will be retrograde until January 8th, 2017).  This retrograde cycle is asking everyone to PLAY MORE, to be ACTIVE and see where your creative vs logical thoughts require a re-alignment.  The pre shadow starts on December 1st and the post shadow last until Jan 27.  So be aware of miscommunications.  If you notice, you are wrong, then make sure that you can correct yourself according!  Saying “sorry” can go a long way!

Saturn in Sagittarius will trine Uranus in Aries  on December 24th allowing individuals to infuse taking responsibility with any new and exciting projects or concepts.  This aspect allows for a breakthrough in your life as you explore new interests that arise.  This aspect will return again on May 19th and November 11, 2017.

Changes are necessary when Jupiter in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries on December 26th.  The change can be sudden and dramatic or it can simply be a break in your routine.  With the activation of this Aries / Libra polarity relationships are highlighted.  If you are noticing a breakdown in your relationships, career or way of life, then take some time to ponder on what you desire to create a new.  Do not hold onto the old way of being, but rather, embrace the change the universe is imposing upon you.  This aspect will return again on March 2 and September 28th, 2017 .

Saturn in Sagittarius square Chiron in Pisces on December 28 activates the need to let go of emotional patterns which holds back your true self.  Know that this is a sensitive time, and it is best to use this time with introspection.  Take some time to ponder on the past.  You will have the opportunity to expand your understanding of the past, so that you can move forward with wisdom and new insight into what you need to heal on a spiritual level (which can vibrate down into the mental, emotional, and physical layers of BEing).  This aspect returns again on April 30 and November 2, 2017.

We close the year with the New Moon in Capricorn on December 29th, as well as, Uranus stationing Direct on that day a few hours after the New Moon.   The New Moon offers the perfect setting for setting your intentions for 2017!  With mercury currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn, keep your intentions some what open to change.  Focus on what you desire to build in your life!  Focus on the foundation in which you desire to build upon.  Be open to changes transpiring within these intentions as Uranus is activating the surge of the unpredictable into your formula.  There is interplay of yin and yang taking place and the desire is to have both sides of the energy find an appropriate balance.  Non-action vs action.  Introspection vs sharing your ideas or growth,  power vs force!  Victory happens when balance is attained.  Enjoy the remainder of 2016!

Inspiration: Holidays and Gratitude!

id-100305064As we come into the Holiday Season, which is always a Magical time for me, I want to offer a way for us all to BE Grateful for all that we have.

October was a very challenging month for me and November allowed me to uncover new ways and new perspectives to come into alignment with my Health and Well-Being. I am feeling better than I have in years and my energy and health have improved significantly. What changed? Well despite two mega doses of antibiotics and some natural health supplements to super charge my immune system perhaps what changed is that we are in the end of the nine year cycle (As previously discussed, 2016 is a 9 year in numerology and after Sept 9th [9-9-9] to Jan 1st, 2017 [1-1-1] when we begin a new cycle we will be releasing a lot of ‘things’ that are no longer necessary in our lives; from people to beliefs.) and I believe that cycle is what has been holding me in a certain pattern that is finally ready to be released. And in this ‘feeling good’ phase of my life I now feel like I have outgrown the limiting aspect of this cycle!

So, I have a lot to be Grateful for!

I came across this beautiful interview with Buddhist Monk Phap Dung in response to the question about what people can do who are feeling very fearful and uncertain about America and the planet. His response was beautifully worded! [For the full interview go here… http://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2016/11/22/13638374/buddhist-monk-mindfulness.]

“We see the mind like a house, so if your house is on fire, you need to take care of the fire, not to go look for the person that made the fire. Take care of those emotions first; it’s the priority. Because anything that comes from a place of fear and anxiety and anger will only make the fire worse. Come back and find a place of calm and peace to cool the flame of emotion down.”

 I felt this quote was especially pertinent to all that is going on this last month and how we can take time this Holiday Season to take care of Our House and not project our fears, anxiety and anger onto our friends and family. The holidays can be particularly stressful for many people and emotions come up. And these emotions come up for us during the Holidays are often triggered by something related to what occurred during the first seven years of our lives. With the added anxieties that many are experiencing – especially in this season – we have an opportunity to ‘Remember the Magic’ and be in charge of how we want to BE and how we want to respond instead of directing the fire outside of us!

Taking responsibility for our reactions and emotional fears is something that isn’t always easy and is something that we would rather blame on someone else. These reactions and fears are the triggers that our egos would rather not deal with nor take responsibility for. Holidays often dredge up some of our worst fears and reactions – our disappointments, feeling alone, feeling unsupported, sensing unexpressed anger and sadness – that we often don’t acknowledge as they lie deep below the surface of our unconscious until triggered. Our families often take the brunt of these reactions.

However, this time of the year has another energy available to us. It is the Magical Beauty of Giving and Loving, the True Spirit of Christmas. I like to remind my listeners and readers every year that the Magic of the Holiday season is beautifully powerful. It exists because of the underlying energy available around unconditional giving and sharing. It exists because of the saying that is so prevalent everywhere: “Peace on Earth and Good Will towards Men”. I prefer to believe the use of ‘Men’ is a general statement that doesn’t reflect which gender we are and that this statement offers a Blessing for everyone. This Blessing forwards a prayer into the world that is sacred to those we love as well as to the planet and reflects an energy that we can tap into.

Gratitude and the Magic of the Holidays are similar energies that we can tap into if we remember and uncover the child-like innocence of our youth. When we can find the ‘gift’ in all our experiences and the Higher Purpose that is always present – or accept that there is a ‘higher purpose’ even when we can’t see it – we can tap into Gratitude and further the Magical energy of Unconditional Love and Sharing in the Holiday Season. When we can tap into the child-like exuberance of the innocence of our youth before love became conditional we experience similar energies.

To me it is about finding your inspiration. I’m often inspired by magical movies like Harry Potter (the first three movies before the series became darker), Fantastic Beasts, and Christmas themed movies (any time of the year). I’m equally inspired by the magical remembrance of a first kiss and falling in love or the love of a pet. Pets to me are very special. If you have never experienced the unconditional love of a pet before I would recommend it.

I encourage you to find your inspiration and Remember the Magic of the Holidays while BEing Grateful for all that is YOU. And remember that you can Share Unconditionally this Love and Gratitude from within to all that is outside you.

I wish you all the Happiest Holiday Season, full of Magic and Gratitude!
