August 19th through August 25th, Inspiration, Dreams, and Spider

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on inspiration and on dreaming. We are now passed the effects of Mercury in Retrograde. At times it seemed as if it would never end and yet, here it is. And, in hindsight, I found it to be an incredibly healing time. To step into the new cycle the advice from the archangels is to allow inspiration to flow into your life and spend some time daydreaming (please note that I did not say day drinking).  As an adult, we don’t often get permission to daydream, but this is the advice from our spiritual team. You can direct daydreams by asking yourself some questions and then allow the answer to form in your inner sight or you can receive answers in dreams. Some examples may be what would my life be like if (fill the in the blank). What would I feel like if? How can I maneuver this hurdle successfully, be of service, create more abundance? Then let the answer flow. If you …

August 12th through August 18th, The Whys

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on the why of things. It is about being intentional with what we’re doing, and it is also a reminder of why we do things. Sometimes we are put in situations that don’t feel optimal for us, and it can get frustrating, and then we can follow the negativity spiral and get sucked down the rabbit hole. The cool thing about rabbit holes is that there are multiple escape routes. Reminding ourselves of the reasons, (whys) we are doing something including staying at a job that may be boring, or trying to resolve conflict when it’s difficult, is because there is light at the end of that rabbit hole. Sometimes our most important job in those situations is to find the golden nugget. It could be that the job is allowing financial abundance, and there is hope in that conflict no matter how it may seem on the surface. The whys sustain us when things get complicated and remind us of the light. One …

August 5th through August 11th, Ease and Healing

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on ease and healing. Throughout this last Mercury in Retrograde, we have had plenty of opportunity to self-reflect, and peer into the Well of Self. Now it’s time for integration and healing. Whatever has been brought to the surface for you I hope that you will be gentle and loving with yourself in the process. Let’s be real . . . sometimes it’s very uncomfortable to honestly look at the shadow side of things or at things long since buried. However, it is exponential growth time, and that is what this last Mercury in Retrograde has been about. A reminder that the shadow of this retrograde will last until about August 15th, For the most part, it’s over, but we may still feel the echos until mid-month. What I know with absolute certainty is that our spiritual teams have been working overtime supporting and encouraging our journey. This week be intentional with healing. After all of this reflection and clearing out, there is undoubtedly …

July 29th through August 4th, Archangel Haniel and Buffalo

Hi Everyone, For the rest of July, the archangels would like us to identify some old beliefs or messages that we have gotten that still rule our actions today. For example, when I was growing up, one of the messages I received was that financial abundance is for the elite and a struggle. There was no discussion in our home about money that did not involve arguing. I carried it through most of my adult life doing just that until I asked for my beliefs around finances and struggle to be healed. One of my favorite affirmations is: Abundance flows into my life in surprising ways every day ~ Louise Hay That affirmation is one that I say every day as a reminder. When you uncover those old limiting beliefs or come across an area of your life where things are not flowing asking yourself, what is it that I believe? What comes in must go out. If you release an old limiting belief, then you need to fill up that inner space with something …

July 22nd through July 28th, Reflect and Reset with Archangel Haniel and Swan

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us just to take a moment to breathe deeply and unwind. It appears that we have all been on the busy train lately (bordering crazy busy). Now, it’s time to just enjoy a few moments. Do something different this week that will interrupt your current trajectory and instill new energy. We can focus and be focused and then take those moments where we relax and not be focused on anything. Sometimes giving yourself a break, and allowing your mind to wander is, in itself a good practice. When you reflect, you can stand back and look at things with fresh eyes and a clear mind. In the quiet and silent moments, what is it that you hear? Is it negative self-talk? Or do you give yourself some “atta girls” (or boys), on a job well done? These quiet moments are still learning and growing opportunities for me, but what I find is that in the quiet moments when I am grateful, that gratitude it will shift the …

July 15th through July 21, Stay the Course with Archangel Uriel and Dragonfly

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on “staying the course.” They are reminding us that stuff happens and no matter how it may seem on the surface or what it looks like at the moment, there is always divine action (including divine chaos) that’s putting people, places, and things in our path for the best and highest good of all concerned. When we hit rough patches on our journey, there is a purpose in that too. It’s not designed to test us, but to help us grow and learn, preparing us for that next thing. It could be that it is exactly what is needed to bring about the change you have been praying for and envisioning. Change can include a state of mind such as peace, or a way of being. I saw a Facebook post recently that really spoke to me, “There is growth in being uncomfortable, and no growth in the comfort zone.” Even when we are on the right path things may not always be easy. …

July 8th through July 14th, Off we go with Archangel Zadkiel and Butterfly

Hi Everyone, I’ve heard from so many people over this last week asking me what is happening with the energy and why everything feels so (for the lack of a more descriptive word) nuts! I think that just knowing there is a shift in energy is comfort enough because we do know what to do in those circumstances such as meditation, yoga, exercise, and staying clear of drama and meltdowns. Also, on Sunday, July 7th, we entered mercury in retrograde, which will be with us until August 2nd. July 2nd we had our first eclipse of the month which set off a period of change and understanding in what we do and why we are doing it. This intense period of change will be marked by a second eclipse on the next Full Moon with a Partial Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday, July 16th. What is important to note here is that everything is well in hand with our angels, guides, and spiritual team. Mercury in retrograde is a time of introspection, evaluation, and can be …

July 1st through July 7th; Courage, Archangel Ariel, and Salmon

Hi Everyone, The new moon is Tuesday, July 2nd at 12:16 p.m. and it is most definitely a time to embrace change. Change for you personally, your professional life, and how you interact with the world. Or, maybe better said, how you allow the world to see you. This month our focus angel is Archangel Ariel who is heaven’s lioness instilling the courage to be our authentic selves and also to step out of our comfort zones. Being comfortable is great but where there is comfort there is no growth. This month and particularly on this new moon, is there something that you need to recommit to? We will also be working with Archangel Michael this month around commitment and steely confidence. What is pretty spectacular is that our theme for July is courage and Archangel Ariel also shares the attributes of abundance. These two things put together are unstoppable. Archangel Ariel is sharing attributes of courage and abundance giving us everything we need to fuel our next steps. Our ally this month is Salmon. …

June 24th through June 30th, Cycles, Seasons, and Snake

Hi Everyone, As a Phoenician, it is a very rare thing to be able to sit on a deck and look over the towering pine trees. If I could share with you the sights and smells of Idyllwild I would. The energy of the trees, earth, and blue sky add to what’s flowing here. Beginning Monday, July 24th I will be hosting the week on the 52 Weeks of Gratitude Movement page. What’s interesting is that my story in the book is about Idyllwild and a very significant journey in my life. It was a pivotal moment in my life that was probably one of the hardest and also one of the most spirit-filled. For the last several days I have been at the Primal Journey Yoga retreat hosted by Ignite Yoga Studios. As always the timing is perfect and these two events just synced. Now is the time to honor cycles and seasons and to embrace the next part of our journeys.  There are always choices and decisions to make but Spirit is calling …

June 17th, through June 23rd, Overcoming Difficulties and Whale

Hi Everyone, Happy Full Moon (Monday, June 17th at 1:30 a.m. MST), this is the Strawberry Full Moon. And like our ally Raven, is steeped in the mysteries of life that have everything to do with the guiding and unseen hand of spirit. Take a few moments today to acknowledge where you’ve been with gratitude. This will pave the way for the upcoming summer solstice on Friday, June 21st at 8:54  a.m. MST. Whenever there is a solstice it is a time for honoring a season and cycle of life. What is it that you would like to honor this week? Set your intention on Summer Solstice and allow the energy of that intention to create something powerful in your life. This week the angels would like us to focus on celebration, not only for the recognition of accomplishments but also to acknowledge a time where you have overcome a difficult situation or challenge. Divine timing along with divine action is always in play, not only because of our spiritual team but also because of …
