October 14th through October 20th, Enchantment and Grandmother Moon

Hi Everyone, This week the angels would like us to focus on enchantment; interesting concept, right? According to Webster’s Dictionary, enchantment is a feeling of great pleasure or delight. And, the state of being under a spell as in a world of mystery and enchantment. Enchantment is expressed as the acknowledgment of the unseen. It is those things that bring us joy and are often hidden from view. Sometimes we can’t name it or quantify it, but we know nonetheless that it is there. For example, the love of our Creator and the spiritual presence of our team and those that have passed. That knowledge is miraculous and indeed feels like enchantment to me. For us in the physical world, this means that enchantment can be expressed in abundance and opportunities. Trust what is unfolding in your life this week. There is an important healing aspect that is already in motion. This particular healing is about softly and gently releasing any old patterns. Archangel Michael is helping us this week by releasing anything that no …

October 7th through October 14th, Peace and Self-Reflection

Hi Everyone, I’m so excited that fall is here! For us here in the desert, it means coming out of hibernation to be able to enjoy the beauty around us. 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 …

September 30th through October 6th, Abundance and Give-Away

Hi Everyone, Wow, where did September go? As we move into our new month, we begin a new season, a new cycle and have created the space for positive change. Our angel for October is Archangel Ariel, who is the Archangel of Prosperity and is also heaven’s lioness. She helps us in areas of our lives where we need some assistance with courage, especially in those areas where we are creating something new or in manifesting. One of her mandates is divine manifestation which is the creation of spiritually based creations (work, books, opportunities) that will be of service. When working with Archangel Ariel think long term planning and goals that require stamina and distance. It could happen in an instant, but in some ways, you have been working toward your goals over a lifetime (sometimes more). I find it interesting that our ally this month in Turkey, who is the ally of the give-away. In tribal communities, a pot-latch or give-away ceremony is where someone may willingly give away all that she or he …

September 23rd through September 29th, Trust, Patience, and Ant

Hi Everyone, I’m sure you are all feeling a shift and a change in the air. This change can be attributed from the Autumnal Equinox  (Monday, September 23rd at 12:50 a.m.) and the calling of your own soul. Divine timing is a continuing theme from last week as well as the support and confirmation from our team. The archangels would like us to focus on trust as an action word. Sometimes it just doesn’t seem like we’re making any progress. Yet, it’s those moments of restlessness that create the exact change or shift that is needed. When I release the need to know, I feel lighter and more at peace.  When I’m lighter and more at peace, I can be that much more connected to spirit.  I have begun to notice when I’m trying to push my personal agenda against the flow of spirit (my timing instead of divine timing). The advice from the angels this week is to trust and have patience. How do you fill the in-between stages? I find that this is …

September 16th through September 22nd, Luck, Gratitude, and Grace

Hi Everyone, This week the angels would like us to take a look at the theme around being “lucky.” Is there really such a thing as just plain ole luck or is there always a divine plan in motion. When I was live on Facebook last Friday, I talked about our spirit guides and angels moving chess pieces around a chessboard that is our life. We make ourselves available for those pieces to be moved by our intention and also by listening to those divine messages about work, love,  health, and relationships. So is it luck? We are always receiving guiding messages that will put us back on track and give us exactly what we need when we need it. That is divine assistance, timing, and guidance which has very little to do with blind luck and everything to do with divine intervention. Today as I was writing this, I asked myself, am I lucky, or am I grateful. I guess better said is I am grateful and therefore I feel very lucky. Grace is …

September 9th through September 15th, Spirit of Fire

Hi Everyone, This week the Archangels would like us to focus on recognizing and identifying what areas of our lives are stopping us. It could be a belief in limitations, a question of worthiness, or simply the little things that create unknown blocks to the very things we want to create. This will take some soul searching and releasing any fear around seeing the truth. I’m sure that most of us have heard the saying, “the truth will set you free,” and I certainly believe that. It is incredible to me how many small things can become blocks just by our own unawareness. The advice from our Angels and Allies is to approach this week with the heart of a warrior. This will allow us to reach past our fears to see that they are just illusions. These illusions do bring a gift in a way, by enabling us to remain stagnate. By design, we are to stay in one place (either spiritually or physically) only as long as we are learning and growing. We …

September 2 through September 8th, Archangel Raphael and Breathe

Hi Everyone, Happy Labor Day! I hope that you are taking a moment of this holiday to relax with family and friends or that you are just enjoying the day off. This brings us to a new month, focus, and Archangel. We have really been doing a lot of inner housecleaning over the summer months and now that we are gearing up toward fall, the seasons change as do we. The Archangels would like us to focus on finding time to breathe, relax, and enjoy the fruits of our hard work. There is always work to be done, but finding balance is equally as important. Looking back over the last several months, what have you noticed? There has been a shift in perspective and energy, which is creating this new level of transformation. Just being aware of this shift and acknowledging where you have been and where you are now is a blessing. Archangel Raphael is heaven’s ultimate healer of all things mind, body, and spirit. He also helps the professional development of healers and …

August 26th through September 1st, Resiliency and Elk

Hi Everyone, This week the Archangels would like us to focus on resiliency. Often we focus on the ease and flow of things hoping to create that sense of peace and calm. However, I was reminded this week that sometimes, things are not supposed to be easy. And, that in order for us to grow, we need to struggle and muddle our way through things and allow those moments to get messy. There is also this sense, especially in the realm of spiritual work where we think that if we are struggling, then we may not be doing it right or that we are on the wrong path. Struggling and muddling our way through teaches us the twist and turns (lessons) necessary for our growth, to create new and deeper understandings, and maybe to reach that destination more determined than ever and with more gratitude. These things that we struggle and muddle through can help us get to know ourselves better and to appreciate the messy moments of others with less judgment. I imagine that …

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 …
