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.

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: 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!

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!

Nov Newsletter 2016 ~ Resistance to Letting GO

Happy Fall and American Thanksgiving!

fall2016October has been a challenging (interesting) month. With the passing of my heart, then getting a terrible infection/flu and fraudulent charges to a credit card, resistance has been showing up in my life BIG TIME! Plus, Halloween is the year anniversary of my brother passing away. I guess I should have expected something to come up because I explored the topic of resistance last month.

But the leaves are finally changing, although I’m still not sure we’ve actually had our first frost yet. We’ve had the warmest month of October as well as summer season in history. I’m not eager for the return of winter, and with all the challenges I’ve had this past month, I’m still enjoying this gorgeous fall!

Our most interesting transit this month seems to be with Neptune and our North Node, which Nancy Arruda shares that it is about “Soul Alignment”. It seems we are being pushed into Letting Go as we end this 9 year cycle and head into a 1 year with 2017. I guess that means I’m on track with all the personal work I have been doing.

Our new 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 anyone who purchases our book and writes a review on Amazon, you will receive a free month of  our Heart-Centered Support Group! For the coming months, I will be doing a series of interviews on the book, see Facebook for updates.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
There may be an abundance of confusion as we enter into the month of November.  On November 3rd Neptune in Pisces will oppose the North node in Virgo (which also means he will be conjunct the South Node in Pisces).  That in itself may sound confusing, but let me try to clarify.

Neptune resides of the realm of Soul.  He is connected to the depths of the Ocean, the place that is connected to the depths of the unconscious mind.  It is here that we store our Souls lessons, those concepts that we are working thought in this lifetime that may be difficult to rationalize or even realize.  At 10 degrees of Pisces, we are learning and integrating “mastery”.  Can you define what you are trying to master in life?  Not just now, but in the whole picture of your purpose on earth.  At  10 degrees of Virgo we are focusing on “self transcending the activity of the mind”. Can you see how the duality of this reality is keeping you stuck in duality?

When we look at the energies separately, we may have some awareness into what is transpiring.  How the mind can limit our Soul on the path that it is on.  How can we master this energy?  How can we utilize the power of the Soul to overcome the lessons we are learning?  I don’t really have an answer to those questions, but those are the questions you need to ask yourself.

As our Soul pushes us forward on a path that we are not certain of, one can expect some time of inner conflict.  It is difficult to master what one is not aware of, but we must focus on the learning our Soul desires.  We must develop skills that assist us with transcending the natural limitations of the mental and spiritual realms.  Have you ever noticed how you attract your thoughts?  Have you even noticed how your thoughts create your current reality?  Open up the mind and rise above its need to distract you through the overactive mental energy tat is taking place.  Pull in some spiritual vibrations, like trust, faith and hope to integrate into your experience both on a mental and emotional level.  Sure, one can think they have hope or faith, but in truth, you must also feel those aspects integrating into the core of who you are.

Allow the creative thoughts that are aligned with higher vibrations of joy and love to infuse into your cellular structure and if you do, confusion will lift and clarity will become a natural state of your BEing.

Try to avoid escaping or the use of behaviours that have you desiring not to connect with your highest Soul Self.  Instead, look at what is transpiring within your mind and body, for those are connected to the lessons of the Soul.

Soul alignment is taking place right now, and it is the type of thing that you may think you can connect to on an intellectual or analytical level, but in truth, you can not.  You can only practically apply the desire to rise above the limitations you may be feeling and integrate the vibrations of the light into who you are.

The desired outcome is wholeness, ONEness and a connection to the Divine that allows you to see, feel and think with the up most clarity.

Inspiration: Resistance to Letting GO

id-100133534So, as resistance continued to present itself I came across a book (first the audio book and then I purchased the e-book) of one of my favorite teachers, David Hawkins, called “Letting Go: the Pathway to Surrender”. I’m not sure if this is the last book he wrote before he passed because some of it felt old and out of date and the rest of it was critical to what I needed. Currently Hay House has this e-book for only $1.99 until Nov 7th both US and CAD; a wise investment.

I realized that the process of Letting Go is not a new concept as I have read books on a similar theme including “Busting Loose from the Money Game” by Robert Scheinfeld (Wiley 2006), and I have written extensively on this theme in my blogs during a time when I knew I needed to Let Go. However, when it comes to the Resistance I have been experiencing this month I knew how important a process it was going to be. In fact, David Hawkins believes that the process of Letting Go leads to enlightenment and raising our map of consciousness to that of Peace (1st stage of enlightenment calibrates at 600. To know more about David Hawkins Scale of Consciousness go here).

So, what was I resisting? It seemed that my theme of resistance created a clear path to areas in my life that I haven’t been conscious of. My health concerns, which I have been working on for the past few years, seemed to get amplified by a fever of 102 which, considering I usually run a bit cooler than average, felt all encompassing. However, instead of shifting to acceptance and allowing so that I could “Let Go”, I began focusing on the pain and figuring out where it was coming from and why it was so debilitating. My focus was on resisting it! I wasn’t seeing the Divine in any of it. I was resisting getting medical attention because I dislike antibiotics and felt it was viral. Although part of it may have begun as a viral infection another part of me knew that it was a tooth infection that was going septic through my blood. The pain continued to get worse and if I closed my eyes to see where the pain stemmed from it was coming from my tooth.

Then the question of why I wasn’t healing viral and bacterial infections arose. Several years ago I was working with someone who kept telling me how sick I was and I just couldn’t create a healing energy to fight these numerous different ailments. And therein lied the problem: we try and ‘fight’ illness. We “Resist” illness!

I knew the answer lied in “Letting GO”!

But what is Letting GO? It comes from the acceptance of the Divine within us. It comes from remembering “Who we are”; from moving into the NOW moment and shinning the Essence of “Who we are” through us. It is from acknowledging that thoughts are caused by repressed or suppressed feelings and that these repressed or suppressed feelings are creating illness within our bodies. We surrender a feeling by allowing it to be there without condemning, judging or “Resisting” it. We also need to “Let Go” or “surrender to” the underlying payoff of that which makes us ill (such as accepting our own victimization or even accepting energy from others that acknowledges us as being victims).

Feelings aren’t the Real Self; the Real Self, the Inner Self, always remains the same and is our “True Essence”, our Divine Nature. When we remember “Who we are” we can “Let GO” from the higher perspective of our Real Self. However sometimes we need to feel our feelings instead of continuously distracting ourselves because we are uncomfortable. Feeling is the only way to release the energy underneath our ‘resistance’ because if we don’t know what we are feeling we probably don’t even know that we are repressing or suppressing and resisting in the first place.

The thing is: I think we all are aware of the areas we are resisting. They are the areas that aren’t flowing in our lives. I just chose to see all of my resistances within these six weeks because I began looking at resistance as a theme. And what we look at grows!

I guess I chose mid September and October to become aware of what I needed to see in my life so that I could truly move forward and walk my talk. I’ve been choosing to evolve my consciousness towards love and transcend areas that I’ve been avoiding in my life even when I thought I was ‘seeing’ them.

As I write this my infection continues because there is an emotion that I’m not “Letting Go” of and that emotion maintains dis-ease even with the extra strength antibiotics I am on and I think this is because I’m requesting to fully embrace “letting go” and I know when that will be complete: when either I accept what is happening to me or I fully ‘let go’ of whatever has it’s grasp, presently, on my physical body.

I am choosing to “Let GO” and I know that this process will happen as long as I stop distracting myself with what is “happening” and accept and “Let Go and Let GOD” into the part of me that knows my Divine Spark and Remembers Who I AM!

Happy Fall & Halloween!

halloween2016This month began with a Heart Wrenching decision that left my Heart Aching. Jasper took with him a piece of my Soul and left me with great knowledge. I knew that I had to dedicate something to him, so I wrote a blog and included some of my favorite pictures. You will be missed by more than just me, but you were my Heart!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
We finish the month of September with a New Moon that takes place in the sign of Libra.  Keep in mind The Sun is in this sign as we begin the month of October.  Libra’s vibration is all about love, harmony, unity and peace.  It is important to remember that this is the energy of this month until the Sun moves into the sign of Scorpio on October 22nd.

If you were lucky, you will have the opportunity to discover what is blocking you from attaining peace.  I am not necessarily saying this has anything to do with fortunate outcomes.  But rather, if you were lucky, you could see or discover what is keeping you in a place of unfulfillment, a place of lacking peace, unity and love.  Perhaps the universe showed you something that you did not think was holding you back.  You would not necessarily view that as luck on a superficial level.  But if you use this awareness as an opportunity to heal, to access the love you desire for yourself, then you are ahead of the game.  That is the luck that I am speaking of.

With Jupiter in Libra all year, we are looking to find that balance within the self.  That place of peace.  In order to understand why it is not in your life, you may be given the opportunity to find what is keeping it hidden.  Once you discover it, patience sets in.  You will find you are no longer in a hurry to make things happen, but instead you allow things to happen with ease and grace.

If you are not going through a discovery process now, then the Full Moon in Aries will also aid in the potential of this discovery. It takes place on October 16th, 2016 at 12:23 AM EST.  Keep in mind the discovery process may also be two fold, with awareness that is happening now, and again on the Full Moon.
Once the Sun shifts into the sign of Scorpio, the transformation begins.  The new aspects of self begin to merge into your BEing.  Where you will have the opportunity to sit in stillness, with the New Moon in Scorpio on October 30th!

Allow the transformation that is happening to be conscious.  Don’t hold onto illusions that no longer serve, instead embrace your path and BE in alignment with the Unity of the Universe!

Inspiration: Resistance blocks JOY!

playingThis month a series of events allowed me to become aware when I was in resistance and therefore blocking the flow of universal love and joy. I participated in Emmanuel Dagher’s Core Attunements that discussed Evolved Wealth where he discussed service and tithing, which brought up some resistance and resistance was the purpose of the meditation. I had to observe what was being triggered, which was partially caused by my understanding of the biblical implications of ‘tithing’ and also my fear around not being open to this offering of love. I wasn’t really clear what ‘tithing’ meant to me. However, Emmanuel clarified that our giving of time is also tithing and that prior to us accepting financial compensation our time was and still is an acceptable form of tithing. However I had resistance to this. I knew how I freely offered my time but did I openly offer a percentage of my time and/or money to service the world? Do I have an expectation of personal gain when I write my blogs or offer my radio/YouTube interviews? Or do I do this as well as other services to unconditionally ‘gift’ the world and make it a better place?

The other resistance that came up for me was around abandonment. This past 10 days my boy Jasper got frightened over a raccoon that, to Jasper, threatened his territory. Cats are extremely territorial! It took too long to get this raccoon out of the house: 30 minutes of screaming and using a broom handle to scare the unscarable (not a pretty sigh). This created a huge amount of anxiety – of which I had never seen – in my beautiful, loving boy Jasper. He no longer felt safe in his own home. And when he wasn’t coming home to sleep, it triggered my abandonment issues. I kept focusing on the pain of Jasper not coming home and taking it personally. I was in resistance again.

So these two unnerving experiences – around tithing and abandonment – allowed me to be open to a new book being released by Gabby BernsteinThe Universe Has Your Back!´ as well as Gabby’s videoThe Art of Manifesting: 5 Secrets to Attracting What You Want Video Workshop. Combined with Emmanuel’s meditations I was able to begin to see some important pieces to how I fall into resistance and block what the universe is waiting to offer. The 2nd experience was far more important to me as I was observing a core belief: abandonment. Abandonment, as most of you know, is something I have been working on all my life. What I had to realize was regardless of what was happening to Jasper it did not have anything to do with him abandoning me. However, my focus on how I was feeling and the emptiness that it was reflecting or the pain of abandonment, it was that feeling that was keeping me in resistance to being open to shifting my focus on what I wanted.

The problem for most of us is that we have a goal and instead of keeping our vibration on what we want – so that the Universal Flow of love, joy, peace or consciousness can bring around this possibility – we instead focus on the lack, the opposite of what we want or the absence of what we want. As soon as we even say what we ‘want’ we are often already thinking of it because of what we don’t want! We want to lose weight, but we continually focus on the weight we want to lose, measuring and weighing ourselves instead of having a clear picture of what we want and not worrying about how it comes about. We want financial security but we worry about our bills. We want health and well-being but we focus on the pain or on what isn’t working. Do you see the flaw there? The Universal flow of Love, Joy and Well-being exist at all times and we receive exactly what we are asking for at any given time. However, what we are asking for is usually the opposite of what we want.

If you are experiencing anything you don’t want it won’t change unless you shift your focus from that to allowing and receiving this flow of Love, Joy and Well-being.

I knew Jasper was teaching me a very important lesson and I couldn’t easily allow him to make his own choices if I was stuck in thinking this was about me being abandoned. He couldn’t heal his safety issues if I was stuck in my own. He needed space to heal but I could only focus on the pain I was experiencing. Just like the fear of believing I wasn’t making a difference by unconditionally serving and tithing.

When our fears get triggered we fall back into patterns that keep everything stuck. I knew these were my issues and that if I couldn’t shift out of them I would continue the patterns.

Unfortunately, I completely believed that Jasper was fully on the road to recovery, only to discover that he had far serious conditions. I dedicated a blog to Jasper, which you can read here. I only hope that I have the strength to remember the love he shared with me over these years as a true blessing and not get triggered by my abandonment issues.

So, how do we open ourselves to the resistance so we can shift back into the Infinite Flow of Love, Joy and Well-being? We have to move out of linear time. We have to shift into the Now moment where we aren’t focused on our past triggers or our worries about the future. The Now moment will allow us to connect with our Divine Spark, our True Essence of BEing. Our truth lies within us and we can choose – when we are consciously in the Now moment – whether we want Fear or Love! It’s only when we are in the ever present moment that we can even observe what we are feeling instead of being lost in our minds, lost in either the past or the future. Once we are aware we can then make a choice. We can step out of our pain and fear and overcome our resistance as we step into our true essence with the power to receive LOVE and to know JOY!

Sept Newsletter 2016 ~ Intimacy (Into-me-see)!

Happy Fall Equinox

RoC1 The fall although exciting and probably my most favorite season, always makes me a little sad as it means the end of long days and warm nights. However, this summer has been so hot, I look forward to some cooler evenings.  I still expect a few weeks of swimming left and feel so blessed that I have access to one of the worlds greatest commodities, a pristine Great Lake and sandy beach only a 3 minute walk from my home (having the prestigious Blue Flag award since 2005).

I decided to ensure this newsletter would be completed before Mercury goes Retrograde tomorrow, so there wouldn’t be any delays or snags. Even if we are in between 3 sets of Eclipses (although there seems to be a controversy as to whether the Aug Eclipse on the 18th was an eclipise or not?). I caution everyone to back up their electronics and not sign any contracts till near end of the month when Mercury stations direct on Sept 22nd.

Our new 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 anyone who purchases our book and writes a review on Amazon, you will receive a free month of  our Heart-Centered Support Group!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
September is a busy astrological month. Keep in mind that we start this month with Mercury in Retrograde (August 30). With Mercury Retrograde in the sign of Virgo we are being asked to overcome the illusions of the mind.

In fact, the mind is in overdrive with healing energy this month, especially with the New Moon Solar Eclipse in the sign of Virgo taking place on September 1st at 5:03 am EDT. With Virgos natural ruler, Mercury in retrograde and the Solar Eclipse in Virgo we continue to look at our thought process. How can you transcend beyond the mind? The Solar Eclipse is not only activating your mind, but also your body. Where can you begin to focus on BEing healthier? Can you see what you need to eliminate in your lifestyle that is holding you back from wellness? When the body and mind align, great things can and will happen.

Jupiter makes it annual shift into the sign of Libra on September 9th. Growth happens through relating. The formation and maintenance of all types of relationships is highlighted. Are you ready to encounter people in new ways?

The last Saturn square Neptune hit takes place on September 10th (Nov 25, 2015 & June 10, 2016 were the first two hits). Although we are still in the midst of this energy for a while, as we have been feeling the integration of it since November 25th of last year, it is time to make life as simple as possible. This aspect stimulated feelings of anxiety, worry, insecurity, disorientation, disappointment, discouragement and confusion. Typically when we experience these, we get lost in the emotion and that may consume you. Obstacles happen when you try to control something that you have no control over. If you are not sure of your current responsibilities, take some time detaching from them. I am not saying, do not take any responsibility, but rather withdrawal for a while and process what you are feeling at a deep level. This aspect really effects the mind and the power that it has over us. Remember if you can handle your mind, you can handle reality.

The pairing Lunar Eclipse transpires on September 16th at 3:05 pm EDT. This Lunar Eclipse in Pisces is activating a deep purification process. It is time to purge away our conscious attention on negative results. We are a society that focuses on the negative, just watch the news. Some people call it reality, however, it is simply a perspective of reality. How can you alter your perspective of reality so that you can align with something greater? To find the answer to that question, try connecting with your Souls essence. It is in this connection that you will purge the emptiness and the ego’s need to rationalize.

Mercury will station direct removing us from the retrograde cycle on September 22nd. How can you apply the gift of knowledge to accomplish the tasks that are at hand? Utilize the courage that is within you as you tap into the disciplinary natures that support your journey towards growth (speaking of growth, remember, Jupiter is in Libra, so you may find it happens through relating or communicating with others).

Pluto will station direct on September 26th at 14 degrees of Capricorn. As Pluto stations direct, can you see how you have been transforming what was stopping you from living freely? Look forward to an increase of BEing in a relaxed state. Free the mind from what is non-essential as you determine the value of what you need to hold onto.

Any restrictions you may feel on the physical plane assist with learning at a higher level. As Saturn squares the North Node (in Virgo) we look for the truth. The Karmic teacher is enforcing lessons on the physical plane.

This month is all about the mind, healing and releasing that which is keeping you stuck in a pattern that no longer serves your Higher Self. The path to your Soul is awakening within the self … are you ready to walk your talk? Are you ready to be internally free?

Inspiration: Intimacy (Into-me-see)

ID-100399034Usually when I think of fall, especially at the beginning of Sept, I think about new beginnings, learning and change. This year my thinking seems to be on Intimacy. I mentioned last month I’m participating in Emmanuel Dagher’s “Core Healing” and this past week the theme was on Divine Partners. The topic of intimacy came up and I believe due to the fact that today Venus enters Libra and Jupiter is transiting into Libra early this month (Sept 9th) the focus for many of us will be on relationships this fall and for the next year (romantic, friends and colleagues) as Jupiter will be in Libra till Oct 2017.

I love the word “Intimacy” as it brings up a series of thoughts and ideas; it is about ‘seeing me’. Do you remember the movie Avatar? The beautiful piece of that movie was their deep understanding of ‘seeing someone’ as they are; their inner essence. When it comes to creating intimacy with others, romantic and otherwise, we need to start with ourselves.

Intimacy is the ability to truly be seen, which many of us crave. To be acknowledged, accepted, heard, seen, appreciated etc. are all words that we use to describe what we seek from a deep place within.

However, I believe intimacy is also our deepest fear. We spend most of our time focused outside of ourselves, worrying about what others think about us. We spend a great deal of time trying to make others see us, but ultimately we worry about what they see. We focus on their perceptions, their beliefs, what they may or may not be saying about us and we get upset when we think we aren’t being seen and when others think unkindly of us. The irony of this is that it is none of our business. Truly the only thing that matters is not what others think of us but what we feel deep within us and whether we remember our inner essence of our Soul. We will never know what others think or feel nor will we know what they are being triggered over when it ‘appears’ that they are upset with us. And we can’t worry about that; because it is not within our control. The only thing we are in charge of is how we feel within us. The thing with this is we often are so focused outside that we don’t remember it is a choice how we feel inside.

What does this have to do with Intimacy (into-me-see) and our deepest fear of being seen? You may be wondering. Here is what I’m thinking: the more we focus outside, the more unconscious we are of our ‘discomforts’ or how we are feeling. We have become unconscious of our fears.

These fears of ‘intimacy’ come early in our lives – as soon as love becomes conditional. Once love becomes conditional – we worry about whether we meet the conditions of being loved and lovable. These fears also come from the collective unconscious where women were persecuted for stepping into their power and BEing seen. We have all had countless lives were being “seen” meant death, literally. Ultimately, we don’t feel safe BEing seen. And if this is the case, even though we desire on a deep level to BE seen by another, we fear it even more unconsciously (or consciously in some cases).

This is why ‘intimacy’ must start within first. Remember my post “What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?”? It was retraining you to consider how you would act, respond, and BE in the world knowing you loved yourself. If we desire others to ‘into-me-see’, then we must also see our true essence; the wholeness within us that will never change.

Yet we do many things to sabotage ourselves from BEing and remembering our true Self. Addictions, health issues, weight issues and focusing outside ourselves are all ways we sabotage our growth and hinder our remembering that we are already whole and complete. We even hope that a relationship will complete us!

So, how do we shift and BEgin to sincerely See Who we have always been from a place of Wholeness? How do we shift our thoughts from outside to our Inner Essence of BEing?

Ultimately, it becomes a choice. We often believe we have no choice; that things happen and we are constantly dealing with the outcomes of life. However, within us lies a strength that is infinite! Although everyone is different my belief is that this power exists within the Heart where there is a Divine Spark that reflects the ‘oneness’ of Source. It is perfect and Whole as is. We confuse this wholeness by accessing our ‘human’ fears, relying on the mind for everything, and focusing outside ourselves on past and future time lines.

But this Divine BEing that is you is always present and you can access it in many ways. It is the Observer of your life. It can only be accessed within the Now moment. And it is Infinite!

Find your way to access this Infinite Source of You and radiate it outward from the inside. This will allow you to BE seen and to have Intimacy with others because you will BE seen within first. If you are like most of us and desire to finally be ‘seen’ and develop Intimacy (into-me-see) with another in your life then take the time to SEE yourself first. Truly get acquainted with the beauty that exists within you. Face your fears, open your heart and remember you are already Whole.

August Newsletter 2016 ~ Healing is Remembering You are Whole!

Happy Hot Days of Summer!

ID-1002030Wow, the Summer is moving quickly, our nights are getting longer and the heat is HOT! I enJOY the summer, and this year due to the unusually warm winter, I’ve been able to do what I love most, which is swim in the Lake which is about a 3-4 minute walk from my home! I also enJOYed a fabulous day with Nancy Arruda on her Lake where we discussed what is happening for the rest of the summer with eclipses and a Mercury Retrograde happening at the end of the month. She will be sharing it in an interview coming Aug 10th. You won’t want to miss it! We’ll discuss this month and Sept!

Have you been caught up in the craziness of the energies this past few months? I know that I have had some effects which I share in my Inspiration below. I recommend you find your own way to feel supported and loved! Whether it is through our Heart-Centered Support Group or someone like Emmanuel Dagher and his Core Attunements class I mention below. We can all use some extra support to Remember we are Whole!

Our new book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Reserve your book today! For anyone who purchases our book and writes a review on Amazon, you will receive a free month of  our Heart-Centered Support Group!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
WE start the Month of August with the theme of playfulness with the New Moon in the sign of Leo on August 2nd. New Moons are about new beginnings, and this particular new moon is asking all of us to tap into our self expression. How can you BE more spontaneous? Allow yourself the ability to tap into child like innocence.

Its corresponding Full Moon is also a Lunar Eclipse which takes place in the sign of Aquarius on August 18th. Lunar eclipses are all about letting go and clearing away what no longer serves. As we have been on a journey of acknowledging the truth the last few months, this lunar eclipse will continue to assist one on that journey as we continue to release the illusions or untruth. We are focusing on the logical path using mental efficiency. The clearing is that of illusions, as we are still feeling the confusion and disillusionment of Saturn square Neptune (which has its final hit in September). Managing relationships and free flowing information through observation and analysis is a key component to this lunar eclipse. Remember if you are finding yourself in the illusion of reality, it is the mind that can steer you in the right direction now. Use the mind wisely and be aware of your thoughts!

Before we experience the lunar Eclipse, Saturn will station direct on August 13th. Saturn stationed retrograde on March 25th. Since then it was showing everyone what you were dependent on, and as it retrograded, those dependencies may have gotten taken away from you. As it stations direct you are being forced to grow in ways that may not be comfortable, however it will add to the foundation of whatever you are building in life. This may feel a little difficult for some people as the karmic planet is asking you to move into aspects of the self that may seem a little challenging. Did you remember me saying something about playfulness earlier? How about more of that? That is what is needed in order to lessen the strain of the seriousness of Saturn.

Try to infuse as much light heartedness as possible this month, the Sun in Leo makes that possible. As we move towards the end of the month the analytical mind kicks into high gear, especially once the Sun moves into the sign of Virgo on August 22nd. The exhaustion and confusion continues, so don’t try to control that in any way, just trust that the path will become clear when you are ready to walk upon it.

We end the month with Mercury stationing retrograde on August 30th in the sign of Virgo. This particular retrograde is speaking to the conquest of illusion. Yes, we are moving through what is false in order to determine what is real or truth. Get ready to embark upon a healing journey: one that allows us to heal the mind as we are now able to identify and focus on that which is necessary. As the illusions are being shown to you, acknowledge them with gratitude and the awareness that you are now given the concentration necessary for reaching a great spiritual goal!

Inspiration: Healing is Remembering You are Whole!

ID-100328116As most of you know by now I look for my inspiration from my life. I dedicate my work to Growing and Evolving towards Love within myself first! So, when I connect with someone or a class I feel inspired to take, I will. This month Emmanuel Dagher is promoting his Core Attunements work that begins Sunday August 14th for 5 weeks. If you sign up by August 10th you receive “A Clear Path to Healing” attunement that I have received and that is the inspiration for this Blog! It is packed full of incredible information on Healing and confirms much of my work. What I want to discuss is the core belief that “Healing is Remembering You Are Whole”! How inspiring is That! Think about the possibilities this suggests!

When we feel separate from Source and our Inner Self we believe we have to heal, change or fix ourselves or others. We believe this because we don’t feel our connection to Source. We feel broken and ‘not enough’! We are driven to try to fix or change ourselves and often do this by searching outside of ourselves. We seek someone or something that will fix, change or heal our thoughts, our bodies, our emotions and our Soul/Spirit. As discussed in my last blog on Addictions to Wholeness we become addicted because we don’t remember who we are and that we are already ‘whole’ within ourselves. We become addicted to searching outside ourselves for the answer that lies within. That answer is that we are already ‘Whole’! We don’t need to change or fix ourselves and healing occurs when we remember this ‘truth’.

Now we know that ‘things happen’ and we will never have complete control over anything that ‘happens’. However, we can be in charge of how we respond and we can choose Love instead of reacting from a place of fear. We only react when we take things personally. We take things personally because we forget ‘Who we are’ and that we are already ‘Whole and Perfect’. True freedom comes when we stop seeking outside ourselves and know what can only be offered from within. True freedom comes when we stop our ‘addictions’ which distract ourselves from discomfort and from feeling all the beliefs we have that we are Broken and Not Enough. This is when we can stand in ourselves and, like Matt Kahn says, “Whatever Arises, Love That”. Love it and remember that we are already Whole. We have a Divine Spark within us that is Infinite and Whole!

Things happen and we can choose to come from a place of Love instead of Fear. We can choose to connect to that Infinite BEing within us that is Whole and Knows it is Perfect just as it is. When we stand in a place of BEing empowered we remember. When we get caught up in the Fear – and fear permeates the collective unconscious of this planet so there’s a lot of fear – we then believe we have to change, fix and heal something within ourselves or someone or situation outside ourselves. This is how we forget and this is when ‘healing’ loses the Magick that we inherently are.

Let me give an example of what I’m saying: this month I had to have a root canal on a back molar. Ten years ago I was told I would likely have to have a root canal on this tooth. This month I remembered why I am terrified of dentists (after my dentist asked me to meditate while she was doing a cleaning as she refused to fill the tooth that needed a root canal): when I was 6 or 7 I ran into a wall and chipped my tooth. The dentist that we had told my parents and everyone (including our insurance) that I had to have a root canal on this tooth because it was exposing a nerve. I discovered many years later this root canal was never done and he lied. However, I believe now he was a bit of a sadist and this lie gave him an opportunity to torture me without the proper local anesthetic for a couple of hours. My mom remembers me screaming the whole time. So this fear began a long mistrust in authority figures! This kind of mistrust impacts almost every area of my life. It sets up a pattern of mistrust and a belief that others can have power over me. So I kept putting off the procedure.

However avoidance and ignorance won’t make something go away. We already tried this with our addictions. Pretending they aren’t there won’t help us to BE Whole or to remember our Infinite Self.  Now it is possible that I could have ‘healed’ this from ever having to occur but as I said “things happen” and I had delayed it out of fear for too long. Things happen because we need to remember and in this case ‘heal’ my fear around a distrust of authority figures (which I may have never realized if it wasn’t through this dental surgery). The gift in ‘healing’ may not be what we want (not having to ever go to a dentist) but can certainly be what we need – which is to heal a belief that is disempowering!

Things will continue to happen in our lives and our choice is to Remember Who we Are. To choose Love over fear. To Remember we are always Whole. Our bodies are temporary and borrowed. We can grow in changing our beliefs. I couldn’t trust dentists so I ignored and avoided them. I chose Fear! Freedom comes from choosing LOVE regardless of what happens and remembering the Magick of our Infinite Self. This empowers us to Remember our Wholeness and experience the Infiniteness of our True Self. Is there anything you are still living in fear of? How can you Remember the Magick of YOU that is Infinite and Whole?

July Newsletter 2016 ~ Addictions to Wholeness!

Happy Summer!!

summer

Wow, Summer is Here and we’ve had our 1st long weekend of the summer with Canada Day and July 4th Independence Day! With perfect weather.

I had a bittersweet ending to the month as I spent time with family I haven’t seen in years but laid my brother’s ashes to rest. It’s all part of the process of Life. Knowing our Soul is infinite still has it’s challenges, although it is easier to BE with. However, the world has been growing with it’s own challenges, what happened in Florida and Middle East is Heart Breaking. The Tribute song to raise money for Florida is so valid right now: What the World needs now is Love Sweet Love!

My new book “Realities of Creation” that I co-authored has been released. It looks fantastic and my chapter is on the Power of the Heart! Reserve your book today!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
We end the month of June with Mars stationing direct (June 29th)!  Keep in mind; we are still in the transformational cycle that is necessary as we integrate our forward moving actions.  How does one move forward in July? Well, I say take it step by step.  We are still feeling the T square energy of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune as we enter into the beginning of July.  The desire for growth (Jupiter) that is being restricted (Saturn) infused with confusion (Neptune).  This planetary concoction has left many people scratching their heads asking, “What the…?!” . The answer is TRUTH!  We are all searching and seeing out own inner truth, as well as, our outer truth.  One may notice that through seeing the lies, but lets face it, why get hung up on the lie, when we can align with the truth?!

Mid month, Jupiter pulls out of the mix, but Saturn and Neptune are still squaring it off.  So try to focus on as much clarity as possible as you integrate this battle of practical vs illusion, physical vs spiritual, or the desire to escape reality.  Stay as grounded as possible while focusing on your dreams.

Also Mid Month, Mercury, and Venus both move into the sing of Leo, stimulating a more playful energy!  We can all use more play, so lighten up and let your inner child out to have some fun.  The Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd of the Month, supporting that playful energy.  Let your hearts open wide so that healing can happen!

We end the month with Uranus stationing retrograde.  When the planet of “expect the unexpected” begins to station, well, let just say that!  Who knows what is going to take place.  Its all about chaos or freedom, which one are you going to awaken to?  Just remember, hold onto no expectations, and allow yourself the ability to explore something unique within the self, as we all awaken to a new Month and some new energy!

Breath deep as you release June, transform your actions, ground your dreams, play, illuminate your heart center and awaken to the true you!!!

Inspiration this month: Addiction to Wholeness!

addictionsThis month I became aware of a deeper message on addictions: a deeper core message that results in us rarely ever getting over them but usually just substituting one addiction for another. There is a reason for this that is outlined in Guy Finley’s book Breaking Dependencies which was recommended by Emmanuel Dagher.

Our addictions are what we create to fill a void. Of course the void is all illusion but while we are asleep – metaphorically – we don’t feel whole. Our addictions can be because we are a culture that doesn’t like to look at or feel discomfort of any kind so we use sugar, alcohol, drugs and any other activities to distract us from feeling uncomfortable. The discomfort stems from this emptiness we feel inside us. This void is pure illusion because we are ‘whole’ in our ‘spirit’! When it comes to why we feel we aren’t ‘whole’ it is because in our world love is conditional. This isn’t to blame anyone; it is just how this physical world works currently. We are here to evolve towards love, to make choices around love or fear. And when we feel we aren’t enough, that love is conditional, we believe that this is true. We don’t feel that our option is to choose love but to see fear in everything around us. And when that moment becomes our story, we choose an addiction to fill the emptiness that tells us we aren’t enough or we aren’t lovable as we are!

Addictions come in multiple forms: from what we ingest to help us feel pleasure, to creating co-dependent and dependent relationships. As infants we were completely dependent on our family and as we learned that love is conditional we developed strategies to help people love us. We create coping mechanisms that are ‘addictive’ ways to live in our world. What addiction we create is because we feel this emptiness inside us and our ego becomes formed and within our nature we tend to have the voice that tells us this piece of chocolate will fill the void (even if just temporarily) and the other voice that pushes against it that says we need to be strong and avoid the temptation because it is unhealthy. Unfortunately both voices are keeping our addictions occurring because even the voice that tells us to be strong is suggesting that we need to change or fix something within us. We choose addictions and dependencies to fill an emptiness that can’t be filled because the emptiness doesn’t exist: we are ‘whole’ and there is no piece of our spirit that isn’t complete. Sugar, alcohol, cigarettes, feeling that we need everyone to like us or judging others, is just filling a temporary emptiness that keeps us in a pattern that makes us believe we need to have outside things, outside approval, feeling superior over someone or pleasure to heal, fix, change something inside of us that will make us more complete! This need comes from our ego and unconscious nature – not our ‘true Self”.

Nothing we do outside or inside will make us complete until we ‘remember’ who we are! Who we are, has nothing to do with this physical world and its ability to make us whole. It comes from observing ourselves. We can only free ourselves when we hear, feel, see or know when something changes where we feel a craving to fill the emptiness or discomfort within us. Let’s look at an example in my life: I have been using both food (sugar and salty foods) and binge watching on Netflix or Streaming movies and series because I’m feeling an emptiness within me. When I look deeper it can come from suggestion while watching some movie or show or it is why I busy myself watching and get caught up which creates the unconscious pattern of either binge eating or watching Netflix. Looking even deeper I can acknowledge many of the behaviors I see as disempowering me coming from a similar unconscious ‘need’ to fill my time, because of loneliness, dis-ease, or a void within. I laugh at the absurdity of my nature thinking that food will even temporarily fill the void or that I can even convince myself that just one more time and I will never want it again because I will have filled that ‘need’. But then I can see the darker parts of me that constantly measure my worth against others. If I judge someone it is because I measured myself as superior in some way. I have done both: measured myself as superior and feel inferior as I still desire them to like and approve of me. And our desire to have everyone like us comes from the same emptiness. No matter how many people approve of us as long as there is one person who doesn’t our ego justifies its position to feel empty and not worthy.

And there is no outer or inner thing we can ‘do’ that will make our addictions go away. If we diet we are actually strengthening our resolve that there is indeed something wrong that we have to fix. And it will strengthen the ‘need’ to fill it with more food eventually – or just replace it with something else. We all know those people who become addicted to exercise after a diet; people who have to eat more after quitting smoking; or people who make a health choice to become vegetarian but judge everyone who isn’t. They just replaced one addiction with another!

We will only overcome our addictions – and there are many different kinds within each of us – when we can remember that we are not our bodies; that we choose a Loving Nature over fear; that our ‘infinite spirit’ resides within each of us; that we can let our ‘hearts’ lead our ‘heads’ and know that we are ‘whole’ and complete as we are! When we know we have certain tendencies that we want to change, we should observe that part of us that chooses to fill a void.

Feel the void! Give it a voice and then Remember you are Perfect and Whole just as you are! Remember that Light within you and Shine it out to the World!

June Newsletter 2016 – What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?

Happy Summer Solstice!

angeledCan you believe it is almost Summer? I’m amazed at how quickly time is flying by! Or maybe it is because I’ve been so busy lately, and time seems to move quicker when you are busy?

The energies have been intense and I’m not sure it is getting any lighter. However, I believe that everything is exactly as it is supposed to BE! BEing open to all that is around us and BEing as present as possible helps you from ‘reacting’ and instead keeps you in a state of BEing. And seeing the Magick in everything! Like this angel in the ‘fireworks’.

I”m enJOYing life more and feeling Grateful for all the Magick life is offering me.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
The Sun, Venus (and on June 12) Mercury will all be in the sign of Gemini stimulating duality. Saturn is in the sign of Sagittarius, opposing all that Gemini energy! Saturn is square Jupiter, and square Neptune. Jupiter is in the sign of Virgo, sharing space with the North Node, while it is opposite Neptune. While the South Node in Pisces is sandwiched in-between Neptune and Chiron. And if you would like to know…  Mars is still Retrograde, and even though he has slipped back into the sign of Scorpio, he is still opposite the Sun and Venus (and Mercury as we approach mid June), only it puts a bit of an unconscious twist to the energy!

Who’s left?  Pluto in Capricorn supporting the transformation of the Nodal power of aligning with the earth and spirit. Then there is Uranus… who is only interacting with Chiron in a minor way, asking everyone one to karmicly finish up on the self-healing!

All mutable signs have activity (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces), and they are all interacting with one another. The problem with a mutable grand cross is the ‘changeability’ that is taking place.  It can feel like everything is changing at once and in the process one can become lost in all that change. Nothing is secure, nothing is fixated. The only one thing we can anchor out of all this changeable energy is… TRUTH!

So I ask you… are you feeling lost? Caught in an illusion of desire that goes against your own truth? We are on a path to seeking truth.  Only we do not allow others to see the truth that we hold within ourselves. Why is that? Why do we choose to live lies?  Why do we hide from our authentic nature? Is it acceptance? Do we desire to be accepted by others that in return we deny who we truly are?  I know I can only do that for a short period of time. I use to be able to tolerate it, to deny who I was for most of my life.  But I think you get to a place within the self that gets you to question “why am I lying to myself? Why?” The truth is we can not accept who we are.  It is through this energy of June that we are being shown on a truthful level who we are. Often this plays out in our relationships, as people in our lives are simply mirrors to our own truth and falsehood.

Relationship dynamics have been playing out for a while as we approached the Venus opposite Mars aspect (aspect exact on May 24th). Best thing to remember, is keep calm within the self, as you are learning and integrating your own inner authenticity. When you are living authentically within the self, then you are taking responsibility for your own personal truth.  Once you align with your truth, then nothing can stop you from BEing the best you can BE!

What would you do… if you Loved Yourself?

lovedRecently, I came into contact with an amazing healer Ziad Hashash and have purchased his Divine Partner series that has been an incredible journey into LOVE! He asked this powerful question in his Self-Love session: If you loved yourself what would you do? To ask yourself this for 21 days every time you have to make a decision small or big it is a way to honor your choices and your Divine Child.

As I pondered this question I saw how many times I sabotaged myself. I began making better choices and could see that there are reasons for everything. Last week, Ziad discussed needs and manipulation in the Divine Love section of the series. This was the last piece I needed to help me see – or to have wisdom – as to why certain things were still sabotaging my desire for divine health from the inside out.

Let’s discuss what this means. We have needs and wants that were never met as children and these needs turn into patterns by the age of 7. These needs have blocked us from moving forward towards love. And they never matured into our adult understanding of who we are now. These are usually basic needs such as needing to be loved, needing to be heard, seen, supported, acknowledged, and safe and these needs have affected our self-worth.

Fast forward to whoever you have now become, a ‘you’ who has pushed these needs down into your subconscious and they now come out as manipulations. Not intentionally, but acting out as our wounded inner child who still needs these needs met, we often sabotage ourselves by asking for the needs we had as children to be fulfilled. For example: someone who has been abandoned and didn’t feel safe as a child would still manipulate life around her to have others show her she is now supported or safe. Can you see how this would work? Since we don’t realize this is a need from our 1-7 year old self we manipulate our world around us and we manipulate others so that we can have others show us what we need. The problem with this is that it is manipulating others and we don’t actually get what we need because what we need needs to come from within as we address the real needs of the inner wounded child! However knowing about the how and why of your manipulative actions can give great insights into why things continue to thwart your deeper needs: the healing of the inner child.

I need to make an aside about manipulation here: we aren’t talking about manipulating maliciously; we are talking about how as a small child we needed to have certain needs met, needs related to learning something that we likely contracted to learn in this life. Something that is related to a core belief so that we continue to search for our needs to be met outside of us because we ultimately feel separate from God. Our parents did the best they could and were likely contracted to support our learning by doing something like in my case putting me up for adoption to help me learn about feeling safe and supported. So I searched outside of myself to feel safe and supported while my adoptive parents, friends, and loves could never meet that need no matter how they tried because it wasn’t the outside that was the problem. So, when I would manipulate myself, my body and others it wasn’t malicious. It was to finally understand my need within.

My need within for Divine Health.

Once I asked myself – and healed some of the reasons I was making poor eating choices for example – ‘if I loved myself, what would I do’, I had other areas come up such as pain that was blocking me from being able to move freely! But I wasn’t asking why I had pain? So, where I thought I had healed one area I just brought another up for observation and I became more aware of it because of the pain. My need for feeling safe and supported was now being highlighted.

I realized this ‘pain’ was just another result of where I was sabotaging my health to manipulate myself and others to feel safe and supported within. That was the true problem! All of the past few years of ‘pain’ have been helping me, or trying to help me, see the truth behind my not feeling safe and supported. Because the outside world can’t make me feel safe or supported it is my wounded inner child that is manipulating everything outside to show me my inner beliefs and needs!

No matter how much I change my outside world to reflect how safe and supported I truly am I will continue to manipulate myself and others around me until I can feel safe and supported inside! Yet I would have never seen any of this without the help of this so important question: If you loved yourself, what would you do? And I would never have seen this without the continuous questioning of why certain things are ‘happening’ in my world.

Everything is in our life for a reason! Every person, ache, allergy, dis-ease… everything! Yet if we continue to see everything as personal and continue to engage our ego we will miss the lesson. If we continue to blame and judge another for what is happening in our lives we miss the lesson! If we judge or shame ourselves we miss the lesson. The lesson isn’t outside of us, it is the light that is inside that has been bruised by a belief that we could have chosen before we were even born!

How empowering is the question “if you loved yourself what would you do?” I invite you to continue to dig even deeper into all the pieces of your magnificent puzzle that is YOU! You might uncover why you do the things you do, and shift into just BEing your true essence! You might finally understand your “wounded child” and honor your Divine Child within. You could uncover why you manipulate yourself – and others – and make choices that are healthier and then, shining even greater, the Light that is YOU!

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:

Did you feel the shift in April?  If yes, great!  If not, then I urge you to look deeper.  IF you have not embraced the shift that was available for everyone, know there is still time.  As we enter May, we bring forth the energy of that shift.  Mars and Pluto will remain retrograde asking you to look inward to what you need to change within the self.  Remember that aggressive techniques may be stimulated but they do not server your karmic-creation path.  In fact, they can create a deeper sense of Karma that you may not think is yours, but in truth, is something that you need to go through at a more intense level then you thought you needed to experience.

With the Sun in Taurus we are focusing on our Values systems, and there is plenty at play within life that is making that  prominent.  Personal values and beliefs are a part of the formula that create your external reality.

As we enter May, keep in mind there are five planets in Retrograde.  Mercury stationed retrograde on April 28th, so we are feeling the miscommunication.  This particular Mercury retrograde is asking you to answer the question,  “what is really important?”.  Your values are fluctuating as you ponder your material security.  Mercury will remain retrograde until it stations direct on May 22nd!  Before communicating anything, make sure you triple check  your statement!

The New Moon transpires on May 6th at 16 degrees of Taurus 41′.  As all new moons inspire new beginnings, this particular one is also asking you to look backwards before you move forwards.  What we know or have experienced in the past may serve, but in that point of service, we may not understand its knowledge.  One must tap into the creative frustration to recognize the polarization of values that are becoming evident in life.  Can you see how your own values systems are working against one another?  WE place value in more than one area, and now we are being shown how those values are not in alignment with one another.  Ponder that!

The full moon transpires on May 21st after the sun has shifted into the sign of Gemini (May 20).  The full moon shows us the events that are in play that shine light into our unconscious natures.  If you are aware of your shadow self, this is the perfect time to heal it through heightened awareness.  This particular full moon giving you the opportunity to see the beauty that surrounds your present reality.  Are you going to struggle for power, or are you going to allow the rhythmic activity to show you the way?  Make your choice, as it is a choice, and follow the path of least resistance!  As you do allow yourself to just BE!  BE love, BE joy, BE what you desire to create!

I choose to tune into the reality where…

creationI have always been against the way the Law of Attraction (LOA) has been described in ‘The Secret’ and by many other people and their books that have arisen as a result of this documentary. Mostly I have had issues about it because it tends to focus on everything outside of us and, really, does having the biggest house ever assist us in our spiritual growth? I believe that many of us are too focused on our lives from the outside – making ourselves comfortable and accumulating ‘things’. However, when it comes to the things that count, we often hope that there will be something outside ourselves that will assist us. We long for enough money so that we can experience the ‘freedom’ or ‘happiness’ we so desperately seek inside. So we tend to accumulate ‘things’ that will make us more comfortable but do they assist us inside?

Recently I have been introduced to a beautiful Soul Sister, Michelle Gordon, who has written two series of ‘fiction’ books that once you begin to assimilate you realize they have a sense of ‘truth’ within them that just can’t be explained as fiction or fantasy. While reading her ‘Visionary Series’ she introduces the concept of choosing to tune into a reality from the infinite possibilities that exist once we make a choice. Now this isn’t a ‘new’ concept to me but it was introduced in a way that deeply resonated with me. As Tom Campbell often discusses in his work we have infinite possibilities and probabilities based on our choices that exist simultaneously. And of course Jerry and Esther Hicks have discussed the concept of the radio and tuning into the frequency we desire.

What set this apart was the simplicity of how Michelle offered her concept. What if it is as simple as stating to the Universe that “I choose to tune into the reality where…”. During a recent meditation with my Heart-Centered Support Group I asked everyone to have their guide show them three different possibilities of realities to choose from. For each possible reality I asked each person to go into the future one year and then five years to see if that first year outcome needed to be tweaked as they may have forgotten to request something that was essential – or of course during that time they may have made different choices that created outcomes that may or may not have been what they were intending.

I believe we all have dreams that we want fulfilled in our lives. As my disdain for the LOA continues it isn’t about the biggest house or the fastest car: it is about assisting us to be the ‘best’ we can be from the inside. Having optimal health, having inner happiness or peace, living with intention and purpose and having the ability to practice acceptance in my life as well as with others, these are a few of the inner ‘things’ that are important to me. These can not be realized by focusing on what is outside of me. No amount of accumulation of ‘things’ will ever achieve these desires. However being homeless or stuck somewhere that doesn’t feed my soul would definitely impair my growth. In Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs if we are stuck in Survival or Safety needs we won’t be able to evolve to Self-Actualization and will be forced to work on these lower level issues first and foremost.

I guess the question I want you to ponder is, “what do you truly need to be all that you desire to BE?” Our Heart and Soul do dream and inspire us to Evolve and BEcome. If we forget to Dream we will never grow. If we don’t look at our challenges as opportunities to grow we will never Evolve. And if we don’t look at our choices, always asking if we are making our choices from a place of Love over Fear, we can’t learn to make better choices. So if you knew that you could choose to tune into a reality that already existed where you made the choices that allowed you to achieve your dreams would you? Could you believe that there is a possible reality out there that exists with all the choices where what you dreamed of are present and occurring?

What if these simple words, here in this article, were the key to shifting into the alternate reality that already exists as a possibility? Can you imagine this? We know that stating your dreams to the Universe lets your ‘support-team’ know that you are ready (and if you aren’t then you will receive the gentle guidance necessary to shift your beliefs) to experience the reality you choose. But so often we either forget to ask or else we doubt our dreams! Why would we doubt an inspiration that comes from our Heart or Soul? So why not totally commit to the dream and reality that exists? Why not ask to tune into the reality where you ARE living with intention and purpose and optimal health  – having already learned the lessons you needed around living without optimal health or living on purpose already!

So, believing that this is the case and that we can tune into this reality you don’t want to fool around but to be clear, ask, and allow the Magic to Unfold! What will you Choose? I choose to tune into the reality where…

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
This year is flying by, it seems like January 1st was only yesterday and now tomorrow is April 1st!  Let’s see who is going to fool who!  Every month this year we have welcomed it into being. Then breathed a sigh of relief as the month ended, praying that the next month would be better.

Typically, we can dance for joy in the month of April as the spring has sprung.  When I go outside, I can feel the chill in the air, so I am leaning more to the side of caution this month then I did in prior months. There is a bit of uncertainty in the air, a feeling that change is transpiring.  One may not know where the winds of change are blowing them, but do prepare for change, that is the only thing that is certain.

The beginning of the month we are being asked; “can you open your mind?” Several aspects taking place are challenging our mindset.  From having an over stimulated imagination to mentally pushing the limits, one must remember to stay grounded in their thought process. Mid month, both Mars and Pluto will be stationing retrograde. Both of these planets do know how to get along with one another, but here we have the god of war, playing nice with the god of the underworld. Ultimately, the theme here is transformation, both fast and slow. You will see what is changing; you may not be in control of it.

Mars the planet of action stations retrograde (April 17) and it is asking us to return to our own personal center, our heart center where our personal desires and motivations live, allowing us to transform our life so that it reflects more of what we want. One must actively eliminate that which stands in the way of your personal passion. How can you create the right mix of desire, will, passion, and love? Once you do figure out the right formula, what actions are necessary to create that from a place of higher resonance? Take time during the retrograde period to figure that out (Mars will station direct on June 29th, 2016).

The Pluto retrograde is all about inner transformation that is taking place on an evolutionary level.  We are speaking to the transformation that happens to us over time, and not necessarily the change that needs to take place now (like Mars).  It is here that one is looking to transform what is stopping you from living ‘freely’.  How can you release repression?  How can you increase being in a relaxed and natural state, without being self-conscious?  You will be put to the test when Pluto stations direct on the (September 26th).

Near the end of the month Mercury stations retrograde on the 28th, bringing with it miscommunication issues which may transpire. The key again is to open the mind to what the universe is trying to show you? With this particular retrograde, we are looking at the values that we hold within the self. One will need to look deep into their mind, and the layers within the subconscious mind to find the truth, to find what is working for them and what is not.  It may not be suggested to communicate this right away, but rather to create a plan that allows you to integrate your personal worth. More on Mercury retrograde in the Month of May and how to integrate this experience. For now, BE open, feel the rebirth of the earth that is transpiring and allow transformation to be your guiding force!

Experiences don’t create our Beliefs… Our Beliefs create our Experiences!

believeWe often live with the expectation that our experiences seem to dictate our beliefs; that everything that ‘happens’ to us creates, proves or justifies what we believe about the world. However, it is what we believe that is creating our experiences and until we accept this, until we look at the underlying belief we have about our experiences, we continue to add energy to our story that our beliefs are justified because of our experience. We get caught in a loop of justifying to the world why these things keep happening to us and reliving all the experiences that validate what we feel, but we are just adding to this energy to recreate more of the experiences we have.

Does this make sense?

I had a belief about fairness in this world, that it is unfair, and the world would prove this through my experiences – including the betrayals that I perceived ‘happened to me’. However the truth is I believed (like many if not all of us do) that I am separate from God as in: God is there; I am here. Therefore I felt separate and alone so I would experience abandonment. And usually some of the bigger experiences of abandonment would include betrayal. I would relive all the abandonment experiences because I had to prove that the world was unjust, scary and unfair, and continue to build on this, my story.

Ultimately what needed to change was for me to understand the underlying fear of separation that led to me believing the world wasn’t safe and, instead, to find Trust and Faith in God/Source/Universe. Learning to trust wasn’t about the ‘other’ person abandoning or betraying me because the outside influence couldn’t really change – or my perception of the outside couldn’t change – until I could identify from a Soul level who I was and then to change or accept what I was believing within me first. Who I was needed to come from a Soul level. I needed to identify the underlying message my Soul had been guiding me towards.

The amazing piece of this is that my Soul has been guiding me through my beliefs, through my perceptions of my experiences, and through my understanding of who I am at a Soul level. My Soul has been reminding me that everything is in Divine Order and everything is perfect for our Soul’s growth. This means that every false belief, every perceived heartache, is pushing us towards our Soul’s Purpose.

We are like this giant jigsaw puzzle, every experience, every choice, every trigger, and everything that happens and that we react to, is our Soul guiding us to grow and allowing us to align from the inside, to connect to our ‘pure essence’, and to remember who we are. Nothing that happens is a mistake! Isn’t that amazing? Our Soul is guiding us every step on this journey – even when we feel very disconnected and separate. It is all part of the ‘bigger plan’ that we set up to assist us to remember.

However, we still need to piece all the jigsaw together to get a clear picture of what we believe and this sometimes seems a little difficult because when we hurt we are pushed towards making the pain stop and this is so commonly done through distracting ourselves with any one of our many addictions: TV, alcohol, drugs, sex, food etc. These distractions do not really clear anything  up  but rather they often create more struggle and pain until we can pay attention to our Soul guiding us.

It is unfortunate that we only grow through struggle and pain – and of course even that is a choice. In fact the more awake we become the less struggle and pain we need to remind ourselves and the more we connect with our Divine Essence, the less time it takes to embrace who we are.

So how do we navigate through our beliefs to uncover our Truth? We all kind of accept the theory that we are all One, that we come from Source, that everything is energy – including ourselves, and that ultimately we all came from Source. So, when we come up against a belief like the one in which we are always ‘abandoned’ and have all these experiences to prove it, then we should know this isn’t ‘truth’!

So if that is the case – and you can accept this basic concept: that we all come from Source – then the error must lie within, not outside ourselves. Source, after all, wouldn’t make us or anyone else imperfect, nor are we victims to these outside beliefs. Therefore it is probably within the aspect of us that is man-made, our Ego, not our Soul. It is our fears, that come from our Ego, that block us from seeing our truth. It is the Ego that insists on analyzing, fixing, changing everyone and everything outside of ourselves and if we are completely unable to do this we often then blame everything on ourselves – sometimes after we have failed at blaming everything on those people and things outside of ourselves. So when we blame things on ourselves, it’s an inside belief that we aren’t good enough to be loved, aren’t worthy or some similar belief around feeling separate and alone in the world!

It is the Ego that tries to make everything that is happening in our world as happening to “us”, because our Ego has personalized it. But these are not ‘truth’: things that happen are not actually happening to us, they just happen. We give them the power to affect us and we view them in a certain light based on what we believe. We create our experiences from our Beliefs.

It is our Soul’s gift to guide us by shining the light on what we are here to BE. And our tests come from how we define our experiences. An example is my perception of betrayal that is really helping me understand my issue of ‘safety’ and ‘trust’. I needed to experience all this abandonment and betrayal for me to come into alignment with my Soul’s guidance – knowing that my Soul will always guide me towards my path of BEing. So no matter what happens my Soul is safe and I can trust that all is in Divine Order. Even my recent discomforts with my health have been to remind me that this journey isn’t to change what happens but to embrace what I have been learning and give it a voice. This journey here is to connect with that Infinite knowledge and Bliss within me and to share it with the world – in whatever capacity that looks like. It is my constant desire to connect within that brings me to a state of expansion and LOVE. It reminds me of the exuberance I AM! It has allowed me to uncover deeper gifts and a feeling of BEing with my Soul.

I invite you to listen to all the beliefs you have and uncover the Magic that lies within when you can connect and are gently guided towards your own unique Soul’s Purpose, the Essence of YOU! Your Soul is guiding you to become Who you are, and assists you to create your own inner beliefs so you can embrace your experiences with an Open Heart.

Sept Newsletter 2015: Choices at Trigger Point!

Happy Equinox!

ID-100220477Can you believe it is Sept next week? This time of the year we think of new beginnings associated with school beginning. Here at Intuitive Soul, Jean Adrienne and myself are beginning a new ‘Heart Based Support Group’ on Sept 8th @ 8pm EST so the west coast can join in the fun. I also have become a published author in a joint venture with Jean Adrienne and our Realities of Creation teleclass. 9 wonderful women have created a book that we were each responsible for a chapter. My chapter was on the ‘Power of the Heart’. For more information on our Heart Based Support Group or to join now please go here.

What’s Up in the Universal Sky this month:
I always look back, before I can move forward! Movement, inspiration, healing and planning.

Jupiter experienced its annual shift on August 11, as he moved into the sign of Virgo. Moving from an expanded heart into the mind; analyzing, exacting, and extracting. There is a bit of a contradiction within these two vibrations. Jupiter desires to expand beyond its limits to see the big picture, but while in Virgo, he is focusing on the details in life. There is a big focus on the little details. This makes me think of the eagle; a creature who can fly at great heights, while noticing the smallest and tiniest movements below.

The Sun shifts into Virgo on August 23, changing from the desire for love expansion into healing. Some may be healing the heart, allowing one to repair from the disappointments they may have encountered. When we expand and focus on the heart, being in love, attaining love, we must first remove what is stopping us from being in this heart centered place. As you do, you heal and Virgo, the healer is here to assist us in repairing any damage that has been done on a heart level. Keep your heart open as you heal. Do not close your heart. In order to heal, you must remain open, open to the possibilities, open to the experience and remain open to love.

One way to identity, the healing that is required it to be open to new experiences, ones that take you out of your comfort zone.  Ones that have you facing tiny fears which in turn are actually larger then you realize. Face the fears, move forward, and allow more love to flow through you, that is healing, that is the goal!

Starting in September one can relate in new ways. Yes, Venus is still retrograde, but as it conjuncts Mars, there is new potential in your relationships. Those relationships are starting to shift into new ways of  BEing. Then on September 6th, as she stations direct, one will be able to understand the dynamics that are taking place within their relationships. Can you see what you are /have attracted in your relationship and why?

Mercury will station retrograde on September 17. This particular Mercury retrograde takes place at 15 degrees Libra 55 minutes, which is focusing on repair. One may wonder what they are repairing in their life, but on some level this is a similar vibration as healing. The repair that is transpiring has to do with repairing the link from the unconscious mind to the ego-conscious. Looking at your behaviours and understanding where they are coming from.  Mercury will station direct on October 7 at 00 degrees of Libra. It is time to start anew! Also on the 17th, Saturn moves back into Sagittarius continuing its journey in that sign for the next two years.

On another note… can you see what is healing in your life? Are you ready to fully release what is stopping you? Stopping you from your true expression? Stopping your from moving fully into operating from the heart at all times? The Solar Eclipse transpires on September 13in the sign of Virgo. Activating the desire to integrate a vibration of wholeness. To be whole, one must release the critical mindset and feelings of solitude. Know that you can identify with your ego-consciousness when it rises to the surface, but do not let it suck you into a dramatic display of fear and worry. Instead, allow your awareness to serve you in the highest light by becoming aware of how the spiritual reality is always there to support our ventures as one works towards embracing the highest good. Our mind is a tool that allows us to survive within this reality, use the mind to heal, use the mind to explore, use the mind with the intention of organizing the right details for the growth of the soul!

The lunar Eclipse takes place on September 27, after the Sun has shifted into the sign of Libra. Our relationships issues are still present, but know that it is time to fully strike out on your own! What do you need to clear, release and let go of so that you can fully move into a place of honouring the self? I am not speaking about terminating relationships, unless that is something that you feel you need to do. But what I am speaking to is, understanding the self in a totality new way. There is a strong desire to reach a higher level of existence. In order to do so, one must first release. Release aspects of the ego as you integrate a higher vibration of your spirit into your heart center. You will need to play and release serious natures that stop the innocence of your spirit from coming out and fully expressing itself. Give yourself permission to simply BE that desired expression of self that lives at the heart. Let your inner child come out to play…remember, we are healing, we are embracing love and one way to do so is through tears, laughter and the expression of innocence!  EnJOY! (Join us for a live show on Wed Aug 26th) Nancy Arruda is a psychic-intuitive who uses the tools of Astrology and Tarot to gain understanding into the spiritual realms.  She believes in focusing on doing what you love to do.  Living life through your heart center and allowing your inner light to shine!  Visit her at www.universalsky.com

 What Choices do you make at your Trigger Point?

This month I want to write about something that has been occurring in my life on a regular basis. People are getting stuck in their lives and falling back on their ‘known’ story and so often such stories are full of drama because of the origin of those stories. This problem is occurring with people who are becoming conscious and honestly sincere in their evolution towards love. I believe that there is a mirror here for me and I’m exploring this as it isn’t just one client and I’m feeling stuck with my clients who are stuck! Oh MY!

I have been involved with several shows on ‘The Story of ME’ and it was the subject of my last blog.  And I have had several more shows since then with Christopher Papadopoulos, Thomas Campbell, and Jean Adrienne where we have also discussed this topic. So, we understand that this ‘story’ is not a representation of our truth, but really our story is from our perspectives that are due to our experiences that come from our egoic thinking mind. It typically has some level of insecurity, lack of self-confidence, inability to forgive or our trying to justify our actions or emotions. But we get stuck in the process and fall back into our ‘stories’!

What I want to explore is the moment we have that will allow us to make an easier shift towards getting out of our heads and into our bodies, heart and gut, where we can make present moment decisions that will not expedite our journey into full drama. That moment where we are first triggered. That moment when we are anxious or first feeling insecure, whatever the initial trigger is. That is the moment when we can head off the full blown drama attack.

So what is our ‘thinking mind’ really doing in that ‘trigger moment’? We’re trying to control and manipulate things so that they are the way we want them to be or believe we want them to be. But really the only thing we have any sort of control over, or have some sense of being in charge of, is our emotions (which our thinking mind doesn’t believe because it doesn’t deal with emotions but only thoughts and the memories of emotions).

So in the trigger moments I always say there is a choice! When that first moment of our trigger happens we can still make a rational choice. But after that we are in full blown attack and our rational mind is nowhere to be seen! Sometimes we just have to ride the wave and hope to come through the drama attack without too much damage.

So what is the choice you ask? It is to acknowledge we are feeling anxious. And to acknowledge that this anxiety creates a deeper fear within us that isn’t based on truth but rather a perceived misunderstanding that has been accepted as truth due to our past experiences. It means we can choose not to do the thing that makes it worse … you know grabbing food to fill the void or doing the thing that has the impact to push you to breaking point. It is the moment we can make a choice before the choice is appearing to be taken away from us. (The choice isn’t really taken away, it just feels like that.) It is that moment when we still have a choice to acknowledge that we are feeling uncomfortable before going over the edge. And if we can bring awareness into that feeling of discomfort we are conscious enough to bring ourselves into the now moment. Christopher Papadopoulos offered an amazing meditation in our last interview on this exact topic, it will allow us to move into our bodies to release the anxious energy. A must listen.

What I have learned from this whole experience was pretty impressive.  One of my longest term clients (and dear friend) who probably has triggered me the most due to the fact that our ‘stories’ are the same [we were both abandoned at a young age] inspired me to look deeper into this. I realized that what our ‘thinking mind’ is really doing is trying to put the blame or projecting the problem onto someone or something else; the closest thing for me is my health; for her it was an ex. These represent what we need to heal or accept within ourselves.

You see, we project our deepest core issues onto others when our core issue is much deeper and goes to a time when we weren’t conscious enough or emotionally mature enough to understand what was happening. I’ve been abandoning myself by making the wrong choices in my diet (filling the void with poor choices) and not being able to build my energy again. My client/friend had been making her issues about someone else when in fact the problem is never someone or something else… it is always our own issue.

So in a way our ego is just helping us heal or accept a deeper truth but our thinking mind goes to lay blame elsewhere! I think this is a normal response. It is just that if we can see the bigger picture then we can understand that our patterns and ‘stories’ were created before the age of 7 – before we were emotionally mature enough to comprehend what was happening, and unable to see that it wasn’t personal. As a spiritual Being we are able to understand mentally most concepts and feel into our emotions but as a child we had no reference point: we could only establish our own misunderstandings. And since we felt dependent on our parents we concluded, from a conceptual basis, this must be love.

To heal these wounds we have had to make different choices… and when we don’t realize that we continue with the same ‘stories’ as created by our young selves. We are unaware that what is happening isn’t just a re-enactment of the same core fear: these incidents continue to play out to assist us to create a different story.

At any point in the process we can create another story, choose to respond differently, see that it isn’t the other person or thing that is the problem but rather a belief we made before the age of 7 that is showing up to help us grow. Can you make the decision then – next time something ‘happens’ to you – to see the ‘bigger picture’ and choose to respond by becoming conscious and present?

I will be away on a cruise and visiting my dear friend Jean Adrienne from April 1-14th, although, I will be available for some shows and remote work during this time. Please contact me if needed.

Ready to Spring Forward?

new_jersey_springAs I contemplate Spring and New Beginnings we are experiencing a record cold February here in the North East. Up until this month, our winter was bearable, but Groundhog Day came with over a foot of snow and frigid artic weather. It’s getting harder to believe that spring is coming even with our equinox fast approaching. Like many of you, I have had enough of this weather and am ready for the feel of spring to return!

You know what I’m referring to, that smell of warmer weather, the feeling in the air that we all experience including our animals? The energy shifts towards excitement and expectation that things are about to change. Well, I’m ready for that… even though it doesn’t feel that close right now, as we experience another double digit day in minus degrees Celsius and cold winds! For you Fahrenheit people it is approximately 12 degrees today, which has been our average this month and it is much colder with wind chill!

What do our New Beginnings look like this year? March brings with it our first set of eclipses on the 20 which is also our equinox this year (the second eclipse is April 4th, which we will discuss in our next newsletter). Prior to the first eclipse, March 17 we have our last of 7 Uranus square Pluto transits (that began in 2012). At least it is finally over, although the energy will likely stay with us till the end of the month! Our first eclipse is a supermoon total solar eclipse in Pisces at 29 degrees, this signifies a completion to this new beginning new moon (the 29 degree is the last degree of a sign and it marks a significant turning point. Turning points are important and critical to us getting ahead and achieving our goals.) The eclipse is at 5:36am EDT and the moon moves into Aries at 6:28 am EDT and the sun moves into Aries for our equinox at 6:44 pm EDT. 

So even if our weather isn’t cooperating, the sun moving into Aries signifies the beginning of a new cycle and Spring. What are your hopes for this new cycle? What are you wanting to create? I have joined up with Eric Altman to offer a Support Group that will definitely Spring Us forward on our spiritual evolution! Eric’s healing and meditations are one of the most exceptional services I have had the pleasure to experience and together we will assist you to shift into the heart and experience Love over fear.

Now that we have entered the Year of the Ram, Sheep or Goat (February 19), the energies are here to support us to heal and achieve financial independence. After this month is finished, we are supported astrologically for the rest of the year to achieve our goals! There may be a few bumps in our progress this summer when Venus goes retrograde and we have a couple more Mercury Retrogrades to consider but we won’t let that stop us! Have you thought about some goals for yourself this year? I prefer to set my goals as qualities I want to achieve. I labeled this year as year. So for me it is all about what will make me happy! My health has been a priority for the past few years, and this year the focus is on strengthening, accepting, loving where I am and making choices that will honor and support me. This will include taking a cruise with my dear friend Jean Adrienne next month; ensuring that I get massages and healings when I require them and opening up to all possibilities that will allow me to have a year full of Self Care.

I have come to realize that it is the that we make that are the most important. All emotions are inner choices and being authentic about our choices is also extremely important. We do have a choice as to how we want to feel at any point of the day. We don’t have to be influenced by people or events, if we can recognize that it is always a choice. Often we are in reaction mode because we aren’t grounded and in the present moment. But when we are grounded, we have the option to BE anyway we want. Being authentic, however, is very important because it acknowledges acceptance of how you want to feel, while not pretending to feel something you aren’t.

Ultimately, it comes down to determining whether you want love or fear. And realizing how often fear comes in to play, when we are not present. Unfortunately, a lot of the decisions we make are made when we are not fully present in our body or our heart. We often want a relationship because we don’t want to be alone; or we want a million dollars because we fear lack. What we want to be aware of is our motivation for change and new beginnings. Let our motivation be one of love. Contemplate your motivation when you are not sure and find a way to be positively influenced through Love instead of Fear. Make sure you are fully and completely IN your body, all the way down to your toes (and out through the souls of your feet into the earth) and connect in with your heart. Find a way to feel the JOY in change and create MAGIC in your life!

Have a Happy Love Month and Dream BIG!!

What are Your Dreams of Love?

skyheartAs we move into the month of February, it always brings up love. Or maybe it is just one of my favorite topics. We want it, want it to be better or are getting it elsewhere (this can mean a casual relationship outside your relationship, or settling for something else because you have stopped expecting you will ever find it!). Love is a complicated thing. Our media hypes it to be all about the beginning, the chase and the capture. Yet, rarely does it show the difficulties within a relationship. I’m going to have author Jessica Shepherd talk about two of her most recent books, Venus Signs and Karmic Mates, where we’ll get to the Heart of what Matters with regards to Love and Astrology. She has an interesting concept of planets in the 5th house showing our Karmic relationships. I will interview her live on Tuesday February 3rd and produced on Monday February 9th.

As I explain to my clients, relationships are a lot of work!! The media portrays the fairy-tale image of relationships and as if that wasn’t difficult enough, we live in a society of serial daters who are unable to commit. However, it is also challenging because once you “land” the relationship, this is NOT the hardest part. The hard part is maintaining the relationship. The hard part is staying balanced, committed, open and willing to work through your triggers. Our intimate relationships are our surest way to grow and evolve spiritually. They also bring up all the patterns that we continue to create and react to. However, this month I want to talk about the “Dream of Love”!

The dream I’m referring to is the most magnificent vision of love you can imagine. When you think about love, what is it you desire most? Think of qualities like committed, authentic, confident, and inspirational etc.. Often the biggest mistake we make is when we think about the “whom” we desire the most! This limits what the Universe wants to deliver, but it also holds the “who” in a pattern that they can’t seem to get out of. It also doesn’t leave us room to dream!! By thinking that it has to be just one person, we can’t see that person changing, and we stay stuck as well. Instead think about the most alluring Dream you can imagine! Dare to Dream about all the beauty that a relationship can hold. Dream about what a relationship can offer you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Often when we are in a relationship, large areas of this dream aren’t being met. And of course, although we would like to blame it on the “other”, it is our own limitations that hold ourselves and our partner in a pattern. Because we don’t dare to dream!

It’s easy when love has gone, because we can start over, but we are still limited by our own lack of imagination for a better life (we may settle because we are too afraid of being alone or we may not trust again for fear of being hurt, so we reject everyone first). When we are in a relationship, it really is the same; we fear the dream, because we believe it means that we will have to leave the person we are with. Yet, if you can dream, and dream big, and be open to all possibilities, you can free both of you from the stuck patterns you are in. The only thing we can’t do is change someone else, but since the problem is never with the other person, it is only us that we have to be prepared to change. If we can change our limited vision of what the relationship is, then we can open up to the possibilities that are all around us.

Forget about whether there is or isn’t a person in our life, and just Dream about Love in all the beauty that it can deliver to us (without the media’s vision of a fairy-tale love that can’t exist) and envision how a relationship will complement our lives and know that it will push us to be better. Let’s begin to dream a vision of equality, balance, spiritually and emotional fulfillment in our relationships. Dare to dream of a partnership with someone that encourages the best of whom we are and the best of who they are so you will both flourish! Challenge yourself to find the courage to be open to love unfolding without setting it into the boundaries of our patterns and their patterns. Love can express itself as the Dream you truly desire, in the relationship you truly desire. Unleash your dreams and invite yourself to open to a relationship in your life that truly reflects who you are in all your infinite love!
