May 17th, through May 23- The Spirit of Air; Transformation

Hi Everyone, This week is the precursory week to Mercury in Retrograde that begins on May 29th. This will always be an opportunity to self-reflect, right the ship, clear out the clutter (both physically and spiritually), and get organized. This week our focus is on freedom and trust. We always have the freedom to choose what is for our best and highest good. We know that because our internal compass keeps us centered and on track with our own values and beliefs. Just for a moment, I’d like you to remember a time that was extremely challenging when you thought there was no way there was an answer or that it would have a positive ending. Yet, it did, and you did. You overcame and found a way to turn that experience into wisdom. You also created evidence of faith and trust in the universe, spirit, and yourself in those experiences. When you find yourself struggling, it might be helpful to have a phrase you can say to yourself all ready for the challenge, such …

May 10th through May 16th, The Wisdom of Trees

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on the wisdom of trees. At first glance, they just seem to be there. Trees are very much like us, coming in all different shapes and sizes. Some present with varying types of foliage and height, some requiring require less or more water. They also have a function and purpose in life by providing animal habitats or shade. No matter their particular distinction, they are all beautiful in their own way. As I sat to write this blog, I heard clearly, be like a tree.  When I started thinking about trees and their attributes, I know that they are steadfast and stable no matter what mother nature throws at them, and like us, if the storm is too strong, it will uproot them. However, many can be replanted and relocated, becoming stronger than they were before the storm. Trees also need nurturing in the form of sunshine, water, and fertilizer. Some believe that you can tap into the wisdom of trees and hear what …

May 3rd through May 9, Vision Quest; a journey within

This week the archangels would like us to focus on focus. In other words, being mindful of what and where we place our thoughts and energy. Where we place our focus, the rest of us follows. If that is the case, then focusing on what we want is always the better choice. It is easy to allow thoughts to wander to the negative and not the positive or the solution. This week there is an element of vision questing that may have you tempted to seek information from an outside source. That can be helpful, but this week is an inner questing phase where seeking and doing some soul searching is the first and most important part. What is it you genuinely want? When you have dreamed of that, envisioned it, and tried it on for size with your imagination (what would it look like, feel like, and is it in alignment with who you are) and have chosen, then it may be time to seek further guidance. When I am dreaming or vision questing, …

April 26th through May 2nd, Loyalty and Priorities

Hi Everyone, This week will finish up April by managing to tie up some loose ends and reflection. Helping us with that reflection is the full moon today, Monday at 8:31 p.m. MST. Let this full moon be the exclamation point to a cycle of reclaiming and realignment. We can have the full moon’s assistance for three days, and being intentional with release and healing anything that you have been working on for the last few months is helpful. Archangel Michael and Archangel Raphael can help you clear and release anything you prefer not to take with you or is helpful into this new cycle of refinement and polishing. We begin a new month on Saturday, May 1st. Archangel Metatron will be with us this month, helping with priorities. Archangel Metatron is one of two archangels who ever walked the earth as a human. In human form, Archangel Metatron was the prophet and scribe, Enoch, who ascended as a scribe and record keeper in heaven. He helps people develop organizational and record-keeping skills as well. …

April 19th through April 25th Keep On Trucking Baby!

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like to encourage us to just Keep Trucking. Resiliency can come in a variety of ways and sometimes resiliency means to just keep showing up and doing your best every day, even when there is a lack of motivation, and especially when things get difficult, awkward, and weird. There does seem to be this unique sort of energy happening now as people are beginning to venture out more and there is absolutely going to be another adjustment period. This week find those things that bring you comfort such as your favorite music, calling or having coffee with friends, and your self-care routine. If you’re not doing self-care allow this to be a gentle reminder of how important it is to operate from a full cup versus an empty one. Periods of spiritual and personal growth such as what we have been experiencing are sometimes (okay almost always) uncomfortable and can leave us feeling a little vulnerable. Just know that any new awareness is valuable especially with our current …

April 12th through April 18, The Medicine Wheel

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on creating and recognizing joy in your life. The new moon was yesterday at 7:30 p.m. MST and all things are possible including abundance in all things not just financial. Where in your life would you like to create more time for things to be grateful for, material goods, time, energy, health, and maybe even the simple joy of being in the world? This week the world is your oyster. What is it that you would consider to be the pearl? Over the last few weeks, we have been working on identifying those personal characteristics of leadership and what we believe. We have looked in the mirror in self-reflection and either chose to ignore those things that no longer fit or we embraced the understanding we found there to make necessary changes that help us to live in alignment. That alignment is not based on the direction or understanding of others but is deeply rooted in our own soul. That being the case, over …

April 5th through April 11th, Flowing and Dragonfly

Hi Everyone, Happy Easter! This week the angels would like us to focus on flowing. There are always influences around us whether it’s work, family, or other obligations that seem to pull us in one direction or another. Although we still have to meet our real world 101 commitments how we do that is a choice. Are you resisting the flow, or going with it? Recognizing when we’re trying to paddle upstream is a great gift because it will allow you to redirect your course so that you can move forward with ease and grace. This month we are nestled in with Archangel Gabriel and Buffalo;  both can help us return to that state of flow. Archangel Gabriel helps us with leadership and relationships while Buffalo assists by helping us to connect with our sacredness and the Divine. These two powerful allies remind us to shift our focus to who is our source.  This week see if you can recognize when you are trying to paddle upstream and then rechart your course. The New Moon is Sunday, April …

March 30th through April 4th, Reflection on Leadership

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on carving out time for a little reflection. However, how you do that is up to you. Maybe you do a walk and meditation or some journal writing. Whatever you do, spend some time checking in with yourself on how you feel things are going. Are you showing up the way you want, or is life dictating your presentation? Now is a perfect time to acknowledge whatever that means to you and either stay the course or make some changes. Keeping things simple is always better and just noticing and having self-awareness is the key to unlock the this is what I want things to be like door. We can only control how we respond, react, and participate and have absolutely no power over how someone else does or does not. Consider this perception as a difference between personal accountability versus control. Assisting us is the full moon that happened Sunday, March 28th at 11:48 a.m. Now is a great time to let go of …

March 22nd through March 28th, Flowing River

Hi Everyone, As I asked Spirit what the archangels wanted us to focus on this week, I felt the need to pull a card from the Native Spirit Deck by Denise Linn. It was the perfect message that really spoke to my heart and soul. Flowing River is, first of all, water, which is the symbol of consciousness. And, in Native American spirituality, all things have life and a spirit, a river included. So when thinking about the spirit of a flowing river, where does that image take you, and what do you feel. Flowing River is about just going with the flow without trying to change it or swim against it. Sometimes we can be too caught up in getting things done or achieving. We forget there are a rhythm and flow to life that has little to do with our timetable. If we can manage to harness the flowing river’s energy and go along for the ride, things will be much simpler and easier. As with all things, there is a balance. If …

March 15th through March 21st, Dream or Illusion?

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. …
