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.

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!

Our book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Purchase your book today! For the coming months, I will be doing a series of interviews on the book, see Facebook for updates. It would make A wonderful Christmas Gift. Buy Yours Today!

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!
