October, Transitions and The Keeper of Secrets

Hi Everyone, Fall has arrived! I am so grateful for the little bit of cool we have had here in the desert—what a welcome change. And, with that breath of fresh air, we are now in our active transition month to the last part of 2021. It doesn’t seem possible. At the beginning of the year, when we met for the New Year’s Eve celebration, I talked about how different these last few months will be in terms of forward motion. What started us off was the autumn equinox and Mercury in Retrograde that will be active until October 18th. It is the last one of the year, and I want to make it count. About that . . . We don’t always know what we want. We think we do, and then something happens that has us reevaluating dreams, goals, and intentions. I think this is what it should be to give us a chance to check in with ourselves and see if everything still aligns with values, beliefs, and all the personal stuff …

September 2021 – Harvest and Clear Intentions

Hi Everyone, I sense that September is full of surprises that will have you scratching your heads in a “how did that even happen” kind of way. This month is all about having and setting clear intentions with Archangel Michael. We have been kind of working on that over the last several months by clearing out the old patterns and letting go of what no longer fits or serves. At the end of all of that hard work is a more balanced way of being and doing in the world. In some aspects of our life, we have had to negotiate our wants and needs to facilitate that balance. For many, we may need to sacrifice having our wants met sooner by a need that will take some time, planning, soul searching, and even learning. The old saying, “it may not be easy, but it will be right,” completely applies now. Whatever you are endeavoring, dreaming, and putting together, know that it will not be ready until it is. On the other hand (yep, I’m …

August; Thoughtful Action

Hi everyone, August is all about taking action on what you have been pondering, thinking, or dreaming about (and maybe a little procrastination). Many of us have felt this internal tugging of the spirit to do something, and now it is time. You will probably not be surprised at how those things sort of change as you move toward those goals or dreams you have been working on. Archangel Jeremiel is our heavenly helper this month and is all about organizing and fine-tuning dreams, goals, and aspirations. Also assisting is Antelope, whose strength is in taking physical action. With these two sharing their wisdom and power, we are now aimed in a direction with purpose and intention. As you begin to see things more firmly on the physical side of things, you may feel the need to check in with yourself and see if everything aligns to where it once was. Ask yourself, is this still my intention today versus several months ago? It’s okay to edit, revise, and shift as you feel is necessary. …

June 19th through June 25th, Endings and New Beginnings

Hi everyone, Welcome to Soul Speak! There is only one universal constant and that is change. I have been writing this blog for about five years now or longer and have been feeling inspired to change things up. While I used to write this blog weekly, I will now be writing it monthly. While Spirit will always be at the center of everything I do, I will be adding areas of personal growth. Without that part of things, spiritual growth and development cannot happen. We do learn from the inside out, meaning what we are we express in the world and what we understand about ourselves, we then understand each other. Over the last several years, I have pursued a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling and completed my program on July 5th! I am extremely excited about having that part of my journey complete to have more room for other exciting things. It is amazing how following your heart (even if it’s really hard work) can lead to fulfillment and passion. We all …

July 12th through July 18th, Stillness

Hi Everyone, This week the angels would like us to focus on internal stillness and peace. Sometimes we all get so busy that we forget to just appreciate the day and those moments when things don’t feel so hectic. This is a time when we can take a moment to have a cup of tea or coffee on the front porch and breathe in the fresh air. In those moments of peace, what do you create? Can you just sit and embody those moments, or do you feel the need to create a busy mind to fill up space? As a society, we are geared toward doing, being, or creating something. Instead of doing all of that this week, can you allow the space to be empty?  When I’m able to access the stillness (practice instead of perfection), my spiritual connection is revealed to me in a variety of ways. It could be messages from my team, inspiration, gratitude, and a feeling of unconditional love.  Those peaceful and quiet moments are also a great time for …

July 5th through July 11, Fresh Perspectives

Hi everyone, Happy 4th of July. I hope you enjoyed the holiday and with it a personal sense of independence. What does independence mean to you? I like to think that independence is about connecting most with our own intuition, beliefs, and values and trusting our own inner compass (and Spirit). Independence also means self-rule. Think of this definition when you are defining self as opposed to our nation. And, as a nation, many have given the ultimate sacrifice so that we as individuals are afforded the option to self-rule. This includes believing, worshiping, and living how we want to exist. My heart is full of gratitude for those that have made these options available to us. Where is balance in all of this? It is easy to state and live in that space of self-rule as long as it doesn’t insert or upend another person’s right to believe, live, and worship how they would like. We will not always agree, and that is both the beauty and struggle of co-existing with other humans. Most …

June 28th through July 4th, Hello from Heaven

This month’s focus Archangel is Archangel Azrael with “Hello from Heaven,” this is one of my favorite cards in the deck. Allow your awareness to include anything that grabs your attention. It will be signs and messages from your loved ones in heaven, including sensing a presence, hearing your name whispered, or you may even smell something that you associate with a certain loved one. You may have a certain song that plays over and over in your head, animals that seem to be attracted to you, or finding coins, feathers, or gemstones. The messages are most often, there is an existence after this one, I am okay, happy, and healthy, I love you, I am supporting your journey, and I want you to be happy. I am in awe of how much energy and love our loved ones in heaven spend, sending us these messages over and over again. Archangel Azrael is the Archangel of Soul Transitions, helping people transition to the spiritual plane. He also helps those who are grieving and healers who …

June 21st through June 22, Dreams and Ancestors

Hi everyone, This week the archangels would like us to allow our dreams to lead us into a period of enchantment where all things are possible. Allow your dreams to flourish with a spirit of playfulness. Imagine what feels the best, what seems the best, and allow it to be the best and brightest version.  Trust that all is within your grasp and for the best and highest good. Counting blessings and sharing gratitude will bring more things to be grateful for in your direction. Mercury goes direct on Tuesday, June 22nd.  Now is a great opportunity to clear your space, yourself, and environment in whatever way works best for you. Smudging can be done literally with sage or incense or energetically with Archangel Michael. Imagine cobalt blue energy filling you, your home, or your environment clearing negative energy away. If there is any area of your life where forgiveness can be cultivated, now is a perfect time. Imagine that forgiveness naturally flowing into all areas of your life and just allow peace to be …

June 14th through June 20th, Divine Timing

Hi everyone, This week the archangels would like us to explore our full range of emotions without judging them or trying to avoid them. This does not mean, however, that you need to be explosive or extra expressive. Just notice what you are feeling and pay attention. It could be that you are feeling more sensitive lately due to this most recent trifecta of Mercury in Retrograde, the new moon, and an eclipse. There is expansiveness happening now, and that water consciousness (emotions) are the basis for all intuitive abilities. It can serve you well. Listen to your gut this week, especially when it comes to your own well-being and message of wellness. Archangel Michael can help us with emotional boundaries, while Archangel Haniel can help us to balance all. Be grounded in your pursuits this week and allow time for dreaming, focusing on what you want to manifest in the physical world. It a boots and wings week! From now until the end of July, we are completing a cycle (we are always in …

June 7th through June 13th, Inspiration, and Wide-Awake Dreaming

Hi everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on inward dreaming and being still. It is often said that “the still small voice within” is the voice to listen to. Along with that is allowing inspiration and wide-awake dreaming to happen. Even if in small doses. We often think that to have benefited from manifesting, meditation, and finding the silence, we have to sit for hours. Not so . . . we can receive the benefits of meditation and manifesting dreams in short 5 minutes a day or several times a day. The amount of time that we spend in thoughts about creating does not equal the amount of receiving. When our mind is still, it often wants to grab onto something. Let that something be what you want to see; your vision created in the physical world. Why not allow thoughts to grab joy or things that you’re grateful for? Archangel Michael can help us with a steely determination to be clear about what we want to manifest (this or something …
