Just being me and hoping to inspire you, from my light to yours…

My Guardian Angel

Last week I had an appointment with a woman who paints Guardian Angels. This was the second time I had tried making an appointment with her and I was very excited to see what would come through from my Guardian Angel. Unfortunately the appointment had to be cancelled.  This was the second time our appointment had been cancelled so I took a hint from the Universe and let it go. Maybe there was a reason that I wasn’t supposed to have her create an image of my Guardian Angel for me.

Leading up to the cancellation every time I would think of my Guardian Angel I would get the same visual of him. I could see him with blondish-brown hair and wearing bright green. It was a consistent and beautiful image so afterwards I reasoned that I guess I didn’t need someone to paint me a picture to know what my angel looked like, I could see him myself.  Then yesterday I got the inspiration to create my own image.

I got out some paper and colored pencils and I went downstairs to my healing room. I sat on my healing table with all of my materials and I called on my Guardian Angel to guide me. I closed my eyes and asked him to show me what to draw. First, I could see the outline of his head and a ball held about center to his heart. It felt like he was holding out this little globe of energy to me. I selected my color, bronze, and began outlining his face and the ball of light on the page. Soon I was coloring in his hair and almost too perfectly finding the same color of green that I saw in my image to color in his clothing. Next, I was guided to use the color white and outline big finger-like wings that stretched up to the sky. I continued to create the image moving as I felt to and selecting the colors as I could see them pop-up in my head. Every once in a while I would pause and ask my angel directly, “What next?” Getting images of birds, an eye, and a star in the sky, I added these elements to our creation as well. By the end of the picture I noticed that it wasn’t just my Guardian Angel in the picture it was me too. The flower, the star, the sky, these are things that mean something to me. Elements of myself expressed through our creation. Through my hands, through my life, it is not just me, it could never be. My Guardian Angel perhaps is a bigger part of my life, and who I am, than what I realize. We are all blessed in this way as it is with great purpose that we all have a Guardian Angel in our life. They bring many blessings- some seen and some unseen- and are always right there for us.

Guardian Angel Aul 2014

“Thank you for being in my life and helping me, my dear, sweet Guardian Angel.”

Listen To Your True Feelings

In preparation for the closing of 2013 and the opening of 2014 I pulled an oracle card for myself. “Listen to your true feelings,” is what it said. After thinking on it and trying to connect with the deepest truth of my direction and how I am currently feeling, this is what I wrote:

Sunrise Path

My journey is about me. It is about me being me and if I can add to the world, assist people in their own process, and deliver graces of God I am humbled, grateful, and in awe. But the goal in my life is not about what I will do to help others it is about reaching deep within myself and pulling out more of my divine being-ness. It’s about being present. Being local to the moment, space, and people in my life. Fully attentive to the spirit that is me.  That is what is, so that being said being a writer is about my flow expressing creatively while being a healer is about being in the flow of the world. The two are never to be separated – personal flow and global flow. That is the grandest scale of perfection in creation, that all is intertwined. The two are not singular, but are one. Creativity and perception translates into inspiration for others. Like saying, “This is what I see, this is what I feel, now take it and make it your own.” Emerge first within yourself and later from yourself as your divine and inspirational gifts are picked up in the global flow of life distinguishing you as a living and breathing being and as sole creator for one destiny ~ your own. It is not about me…. it is about you. And you must find it for yourself. Inner guidance is available to all. And each in our own way are expressions of our journey to live in our own creation of time, writing our masterpiece that is life.

Reflect on these words, reflect on who you are, and start asking yourself questions…”How do I really feel?”  Become your own light and your own guide. This is how it is to become.

The path becomes easier when you’re friends with yourself and love is the most masterful key.

Intuition- providing a means for kids to connect inward

Many would agree that times have changed. The world is different, ways of life are different, and kids are different too.

In these times it is important to provide ways for our youth to learn how to connect inward. The constant outward connection that our hi-tech society supports can have a dulling effect on any individuals ability to ‘feel’ or ‘hear’ themself. When gratification is only ever a finger push away it may seem like more work to actually turn one’s attention inward and cultivate that inner sense of gratification. However, this is detrimental to the overall balance of any individual. After all where does one’s sense of well-being come from? That’s right, inside! This inner sense that cannot be faked has a direct link to our physical health as well as our mental and emotional stability.

In our society the amount of free time kids have is swallowed up by the lure of television, internet, games, and so on. So we as parents need to take a more strategic route to providing space for our children to explore themselves. Art and writing or building things are all fabulous ways to be creative and connect inward. Give any child, any age, a piece of paper and some crayons and they’ll naturally create through the freedom of imagination and connect to that inner spark of themselves that is uniquely their own. However, why not take it one step further and employ some life skills that will help them to grow and also give them tools to use in the real world when things get tough. This is where helping your child to build their intuition comes into play.

Intuition is defined as the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning. It is that gut instinct sense of knowing if something is right for you or not. It is a sense that has a direct pathway to what is best for you as it connects internally and places less emphasis on the external world. It is a sense that is natural, everyone feels their intuition on some level. But it is also a sense that can be developed. Like a muscle in your body, the more you use it the stronger it gets, and the stronger it gets the more its use will benefit you.

I have listed a few books here that can get you in touch with helping your child (and yourself) to connect inward and cultivate the intuitive sense.

A Reading for you the Reader

Today I have decided to pull a card from one of my oracle card decks. My intention is that it carries a message for each of you whom read my blog.


A reading for you:

November 2013 102

When I look at this card the first thing that I see is the man who appears to be in a struggle. He is holding a wand out in front of himself in protection. However, you should notice that the six wands that appear to be coming at him aggressively are also exactly the same as the one he uses to defend himself. To me this means – use those things that seem like hindrances to your own advantage right now.

I also would like to note that at any time he can reach out and take in hand another one of those aggressive wands – do not back down, use your position to your own advantage and acquire what you need, and always with the intention of the highest good for all.

I also notice that he is standing in a field of wheat, a crop to be harvested. This is a symbol of abundance – there is enough to sustain you so that you may take what you need. Make your struggles work for you in rising on your own ground and providing for your own needs – spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically, or a combination. You will know which one is your personal focus as it should stand out to you as you read them.

Lastly I would like to note that I can see a face in the blue of the sky. This represents your angels, guides, and God who is helping you behind the scenes. So please remember to ask them to help you in providing for your own healthful needs.

May God bless you and may you have a most grateful Thanksgiving.

When life gets confusing call in your higher self

Sometimes life is confusing. Sometimes you feel like you don’t know what to do or which direction to go. That is when it can be helpful to call in your higher self to do some work for you.

This is a little exercise that will help you attune with your higher self and set the intention for the law of attraction to deliver the highest vibration of possibilities into your life.



Take 3 deep breaths.

Inhale… exhale… inhale… exhale… inhale… exhale…

Now with your pointer finger held above the top of your head swirl your crown chakra energy in a clockwise direction and say, “white light clear.”

When you feel like you are done pull your crown chakra energy up to the Heavens by simply lifting your hand and your pointer finger up and away from the top of your head until it is pointing upwards. As you do this say, “white light open.”

Visualize this beam of white light traveling up so high that you can see it connect into the bright white glowing belly of God.

Now, also visualize this beam of white light travel down through your body and anchor you peacefully into the earth.

Next you can say, “I call on my higher self to be one with me.” Take a moment here to breathe and let your energy integrate.

When you feel ready affirm, “My higher self is present and attracts everything that comes to me through my highest vibration.” Allow yourself to feel and see the bubble of white light that fully surrounds you.

In closing feel free to close your eyes and settle into this space of divine vibration where you have called on your higher self to magnetize and attract for you.

And be thankful. “Thank you God.”


Feeling a Little under the Weather

I am trying my hardest to fight off a bug with herbal teas, essential oils, vitamins, and sleep.

I remember that last year I detoxed in December and was not sick for the whole rest of the cold and flu season. That was really nice and a good reminder that what we eat directly affects our bodies immunity.‎

I have also been charging my water again as any lift in vibration helps. And of course asking the angels, ascended masters, and spirit guides to heal me. This morning I hit the snooze button twice and instead of sleeping I called on them. I could see a couple of them come in and I got a nice 20 minute session of energy pulsing to me to help boost my vibration and to help me release some forgiveness I had been harboring, which could have also been bringing my physical health down. Now that I am up and moving around I actually feel invigorated (I know, weird) and can feel drainage in the back of my throat so I know the illness is moving and that’s a good thing.

To call on your team of spirit healers to heal you:

Sit or lay in a quiet space and say, “God, Angels, Ascended Masters, and Spirit Guides please heal me.”

If you like you can put your hands on the parts of your body where you feel you need the most healing. Then simply relax and receive.

Animal Spirit Guide Message

The other morning I woke up and was allowed some quiet, uninterrupted time, to just lay in bed. Usually when this happens I call on all of my angels, guides, and ascended masters to be with me. Sometimes I can feel their energy as they send me gentle healing and sometimes I receive messages.

I would say in the days leading up to this I have felt a little bit stagnant energetically. Kind of in a confused state not knowing or seeing which way to go or what to go with next. I even pulled a card the other day that literally said I am at a standstill.

So on this particular morning when I got an image of a bird I knew it was a message to pay attention to. I could see the whole bird very clearly, especially the specific markings on its head, a mix of white with streaks of brown.  In fact the bird was so clear I could feel and see it in my energy field perched atop my head. I could even feel its talons etherically tangle in my hair. I watched the bird as it just sat there but even though my perched friend did not move I was shown another image. It was of the bird flying high up into the sky, to the Heavens, and then flying down low, to the Earth, moving between the two spaces effortlessly. It felt like I could do both of these things and that I will.

So my next move was to get my lazy butt out of bed and grab my Animal Spirit Guides book by Steven Farmer. This way I could see what this bird was and read further into its message. I actually had to flip through the whole book to find it. Nope not it, nope not it, as I felt the energy and passed the images of condor, eagle, and hawk. When I got to the image of a Kite, which is a bird, energetically it struck me as a match but my logical mind wanted to be positive. I thought hmm this might be it, but it wasn’t until I was able to pull up an image on the computer and see its markings on its head that I was for sure. It is interesting to me now as I write this that the head was its describing feature and that it too was perched upon my head; no doubt bringing awareness to my mind.

There are several possible messages in the book but only a few resonated. Two of them stuck out to me as things that have ironically been on my mind: eating healthy foods and taking a yoga class. Truth be told I have been on quite a binge eating horribly and my plan is to turn it around this week but also I have been wanting to take a Kundalini yoga class for years and have just recently found out that there is one taught locally! I plan to attend this week as well. These two messages were indeed a direct link but the message that actually stood out to me the most was the one that read:

Take off your mask and let the world know who you really are.

As I read this understanding flooded in and I got the full message. The other two are merely supports for the third, “Take off your mask and let the world know who you really are.” Instinctively my first reaction was to hesitate because it is scary to share yourself so openly but my hesitation passed in a fleeting moment and I knew that for me this meant to pick up where I left off in the spring and keep going with writing my memoir. It is part of who I am to share it, to share the story of who I am. So today is the day that I start my daily transcribing again.

In the spring it took me 88 days to transcribe 2 months of work, I wonder how long it will take me this time?

A New Year Begins Today…

Ever feel like you have been preparing your whole life for this moment? That is what I am feeling like today, only it is not for this moment it is for the potential contained within this moment. I have been preparing potential for lifetimes. I see now. Lifetimes upon lifetimes, preparing myself, my soul, to step forward into the mists of my potential. It is not concrete it is divine, it has no form, I have no form, my potential is formless and so it is just me… Today feels so still and so pregnant, pregnant with possibility.


I have been acquiring new spiritual foods to nourish myself and an intuitive forecast of the coming year is marked by change. And here I sit at the foot of it, my first day beyond my birthday. I am in awe of the potential that lies within this day, the potential that lies within me. Tears come to my eyes as I feel my own truth… I am a gift. I am a gift. I mean this not out of ego or even opinion, it’s deeper than that. It stretches through my very being as a feeling connected to the knowingness that God and I are one. This is humanity’s truth. We are all awakening on our own levels in our own time and of our own accord. It is a journey that takes lifetimes. Unfolding and knowing self as a gift, self as a space, a mind, a soul, and a light, self as God. I am floating and light as I write this. Not quite corded to the physical plane right now, but I don’t care. I don’t care because I am touching the truth of who we all are… gifts of God’s true, pure, and masterful love.

The year will unfold accordingly and I know I have challenges to come but in today, and really even just in this moment, I feel all the potential of what I am capable of in this tiny little year of time and so I pray for my own soul to be strong, to be courageous, to be still, and to surrender and follow God’s divine lead. A lead only I can hear for myself through my own soul and my own heart. I pray for my own soul to live its potential of the highest caliber, manifesting God’s truth through me. My body feels so tingly and the air around me is so charged with spirit. I take a moment and drink in this mass of light energy through my crown chakra allowing it to settle into my system. Breathing out peacefully and settling into my bones as I sit. I shift back a bit in my chair, unintentionally, moved by spirit. My eyes are closed as my fingers type. My whole body hums with that which is the universe. I can see the stars within me as my true origin lies out there, somewhere among the stars, a starry night person. I am bigger than this world and so are you.

I don’t know when your birthday is but damn, happy birthday to you, and may you live out all of your highest potential in the years to come.
Sometimes feelings can’t be expressed in words, but wow what a feeling this is.

Parting thoughts to share…
The other day after meditation I asked, “God show me what I can soar with?” To which the reply was, “Love. Love, love, love, love, love. Soar with love; the most powerful thing.”
Yes, I speak direct to God. There’s no separation. And you can too, there is no separation for you as well. As a dear and wise friend once said, “I am not special, unique, or exceptional what I can do you can do too.” And that is God’s honest truth for you to discover as well. You carry so much potential just simply by being. All of the potential is already contained within it’s just a matter of connecting to it and allowing it to take its form through you.

Also, today just before I sat down to meditate and “leave earth” (lol) my guidance gave me this advice, “Surrender and allow. Feel into every moment. Don’t make choices ahead of time. Feel. Feel into the moments, surrender, and allow.” My afterthoughts I wrote down were… Stop trying to control. The true potential is held within the space and time of feeling into the moment. And in the moment of feeling into it and allowing, is the openness. The openness that leads us to our highest potential and most conscious choices. It is called conscious living and as a species we are still volleying back and forth between conciousness and unconsciousness but here we are today, and the potential is ours!

Swimming Upstream

There is a lot going on in our world today.

My constant message from my guidance is to continue to work on myself.

As I pulled a card today for myself it appeared upside down. Two fish swimming in a stream. The intuitive words spoken, “swimming upstream.” That is the message of my current place in life. One shared by many.

It feels like there is a lot of work to be done, a lot to be done in the world. It feels like it is going to take a lot of effort to get to where I am going (and I thank God for my tools of divine guidance to spell it out a little clearer for me).

I don’t know a whole lot about fish and swimming upstream but curiosity led me to google and I came upon this beautiful post written by another fellow blogger that felt like it fit perfectly:


Based on what I read there it seems that in swimming upstream, we are working for the greater good. We are working for the next generations to come, of our children, and their children, and so on. We are working for the promise and hope of the future existing through the cycle of life and with the hope that it will be a beautiful life for them.

The underlying truth in “swimming upstream” is that the trials, challenges, and adversities we face are all with purpose as they solidify in the spiritual and earthly gifts we pass on to our children of the world. It is our personal investments in our self that we work to achieve but that will also be the achievements of our children. We are to lead their minds and their hearts in such a way that may be contrary to the “reality” of the chaotic outside world. We are to lead them to Peace, to Love, to Joy, and to Faith. And that is how we will ensure a bright future for our families to come, by creating it ourself. Traveling it as our own path and instilling it as truth for our families well-being.

Through human beings God’s message to the world is that, “love exists.”

Love exists…

Now, there is no evil in the world that can change that. So just keep on loving and keep on swimming upstream.

May God Bless You and Bless All Beings of Our World. Amen! ~Love Realized

Message for the day…

Look inside yourself; to heal the world.

Stoke the fire within and trust your intuition because new things are coming to you.

At this time it is so important to achieve balance between body, mind, and spirit. Your spirit is the one that can keep you in-check if you hold on to it and pay it attention.

In which area are you out of balance most? Is it your mind, your connect to your spirit, or your body?

Choose one simple thing to do today and take a step toward restoring inner balance and that peace in your life which radiates from the inside out.


For Body – Move your body more today, find time to dance, or drink more water.

For Mind – Adopt a mantra for the day and repeat it regularly in your mind. Example, “I am worthy.”

For Spirit – Send your spirit love. Take a centering breath, focus on the warmth you feel within your chest, and direct the words, “I love you” to it. Allow those words, “I love you,” to swirl and go wherever they need to go in healing your spirit.

You are cleansing yourself vibrationally by doing any of these things. And in the enjoyment of doing them you also open space within yourself that will welcome the quality of higher vibrating things to you.
