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. …

March 8th through March 14th, Becoming . . .

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on the inner journey of our transformation.  We are always in a state of becoming something more or something less depending on our own cycle of life, dreams, and aspirations. Many of our dreams have us focusing on physical goals or achievements. This particular transformative cycle is on the inner journey. Which, in all truth, is the most powerful way to create a physical expression of change. It will rarely be so obvious that it taps you on the shoulder and will more likely be something that you notice over time that has you feeling more at home in your body, work, and life. Maybe you find relationships a little easier, work a little less stressful, or that you seem to have found your own inner rhythm. Whatever you have been consciously or unconsciously working on, you will a more defined sense of self that can only be defined from within. You are everything you need to be to be exactly who you are. …

March 1st through March 7, Archangel Ariel and Rebirth

Hi Everyone, Today is the beginning of the new month and with it is the promise of spring where all things that embody hope and renewal are made visible. Archangel Ariel is with us this entire month as we Spread Our Wings and fly.  Archangel Ariel is also heaven’s Lioness and will help us with courage when we need to step into the deep in of the pool without floaties or when we spread those wings. We are always in a state of becoming, and I feel that we will begin to have glimpses of what that may look like and how things will take shape and form. As always, trust your instincts on all important matters. At the beginning of the week, take a look at your goals, dreams, and aspirations and expand that view. This is a time of building and manifesting your vision . . . really expand. Ask Archangel Ariel to help you with that expansion. Try to approach this will an attitude of playfulness and creativity. Then release and surrender …

February 22nd through February 28th, Cultivating Grace and Empathy

Hi Everyone, This week, the archangels would like us to focus on being whatever the person, place, or thing is, creating distress, drama, or awkwardness in your life. I know it sounds odd, but in Native American terms, it would be called shape-shifting. In our physical world, we would imagine being the person, place, or thing. It is a way of understanding someone or something different than yourself and your perspective. Doing this intentional shape-shifting will help you to cultivate grace and empathy. When we extend grace and empathy, we do not necessarily agree with that person, place, or thing. We are only honoring their space or beliefs, even when different from our own. Different is not wrong; it’s just different. Walking a mile in someone’s shoes helps us to see not only the road they are on but how their shoes feel, their gait, and if the road was painful to walk on. This creates empathy Over the last several weeks, Mercury has been in retrograde, and through it, many of us have taken …

February 15th through February 21st, The Leader Within

Hi Everyone, I hope you had a fabulous Valentine’s Day. On Thursday, February 11th, the new moon moved some excess energy around that helped to shift and move things to a more balanced place. In this first part of the year, we are dedicated to learning more about ourselves and our place within it. Sometimes that learning can be a smooth ride and easy, and sometimes that education can be challenging. However, it’s all beauty and grace in action as Spirit is directing everything in concert with our prayers and wishes. It is the road (including bumps) that gets us from point A to point B. Everything is a tapestry of connecting dots and ribbons. The trick is to find acceptance in the challenges as well as the joys and find the flow. The more you try to struggle, the deeper you fall into a metaphoric quicksand. Practicing that acceptance will help you float above and ride the waves through grace. What are you learning? If you take a moment to journal or do something …

February 8th through February 14th, Reflect in Peace

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. 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 positive feedback for 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 will shift the energy to a positive, loving, and …

January 25th through January 31st, The Spirit of Water

Hi Everyone, This week the archangels would like us to focus on the spirit of water. In Native American tradition, all things have a spirit and energy; water is among them. Water can flow, be nourishing, cleansing, and can also be damned up. So this week, pay particular attention to how you feel. Let your emotions guide you and allow the water (consciousness/intuition) to flow. Be on the lookout for areas of your life where they have been a damn built and gently open the floodgates. You may notice some emotional flow, including some emotions you are not comfortable with or even like. Just notice them for what they are, release the ones that don’t serve you, and embrace the ones that do. All emotions are valid in time and space. It is just a matter of how we use them. Ignoring emotions or stuffing them will only create an overfilled damn that at some point will burst. The goal here is to release it in a healthy way and in a way that you …
