During a reading today, a woman repeatedly asked me if her business venture was going to fail or if her husband was going to leave her when she went away on business.  All aspects of the reading were positive.  Here husband was a solid, stable personality.  She was a person who was greatly organized and one of those gifted people who had the ability to make her ventures successful.  Her issue?  The heart of the matter was herself! Each time I did a spread for her, the outcome was good, but the possible blocks were her own fears and insecurities.  Will her relationship fail her?  If her husband has his choice, no!  However, there are issues within herself that were going to stand in her way. I am going away and my husband will leave me because of this  is a mindset that was not going to serve her marriage.  Instead, her guides suggested she focus on trusting her husband's stability and the gift of his support.  They suggested she use words to speak the truth of her successful relationship and her savvy business skills.

Often, we can vastly improve our situations by minding our own words.  This is a well known psychological term coined Self-Fufilling Prophecy.  In a nutshell,  self-fulfilling prophesy translates words have power. Tell a child he has issues with reading, and he will struggle with reading!  Want to succeed?  Stop  second guessing yourself! Take a look at the way you talk to yourself, and there you might just find the root of your struggles. Manifestation is empowered by belief and trust.  A simple change of thinking from I'm not sure if I made the right decision to I am competent, successful business woman can make all the difference in the world.  Granted, to reach this point, many of us have to go through a great amount of work and healing.  However, taking the step to change your thoughts and words-even if you do not yet believe your new positive language-is an excellent first step toward manifesting your bright future. 

Weekly Forecast 10-06-2014

This week's forecast is taken from Higher Intuitions oracle deck.  how appropriate that we start the week with the beautiful Monarch Butterfly.  It's now October, and they have begun their great migration south.  Just last week, I caught a fleeting glimpse of one feeding among the fall flowers. What a treasure.  It is in this context that I am drawn to the words on the card, "Build Your Wings."  It is that we are on the cusp of a great migration ourselves.  Time to take some time and build your power, because you are awakening and the journey is just beginning.  Amidst the hustle of the week's beginning, this card tells us to slow down, turn off the electronics and find your center. 

The second card of the week is the Angel Fish and is titled, "Call on Your Angels."  This builds so naturally off the beginning of the week where we find ourselves needing to back off and build ourselves up.  Steer away from the stubborn urge to do things by yourself.  It's time to ask for help and help is there for you!  Your angels cannot work on your behalf without your request for assistance.  That overwhelmed feeling is completely unnecessary.  Remember help is just a request away.

We bring up the week with Moose, "Balance."  I am specifically drawn to the sense of community of the picture.  See the two birds perched on the moose?  This is a week to accept assistance.  Remember, you are not a failure for not going it by yourself.  The theme of the week seems to be open up to the helping hand of others.  Dear Ones, we have spirit and family and friends so we can give and receive. We need to let go of the tendencies to want to do it all by ourselves when a little help is all we need :-) 

I want to draw your attention to the pairs in this draw of cards.  Each card drawn has two of something, creating the Angel Number 222, the number of manifestation. Any ideas you have planted or are manifesting are beginning to take root.  Although the journey seems uphill, now is not the time to give up!  Keep watering those seeds and don't miss out on the miracle before it occurs!  Keep up the positive affirmations and the good work, for soon it will pay off :-) 

Have a great week folks!

September 9-14 2014 Weekly Forecast

Better Late than never, here is your weekly forecast! This week is Messages from Your Angels, by Dorreen Virtue.  I want to start out by saying, Okay, who's been the over achiever here?  The first card I prove is about self care-  Teresa: time-out! You've been so busy taking care of everyone else's needs, but now it's time to stop and take care of yourself. This feels more to mee like someone or someones are work-a-holics.  The grind is getting to you and you are forgetting to eat well and get some sleep.  This card poses a call to your health.  Slow down and pay attention to your body or your body will get your attention.  Get some colorful fruits and veggies into your system and boost your immunity.  You need it!

The second card is Bridgette: Caution is warranted.  Look deeper into this situation before proceeding further." If you are getting ready to sign on that house, make sure you have it thoroughly inspected.  Take care of yourself by taking care of your personal business.  Get that second opinion and save yourself grief later.  The investment you make in a professional opinion will definitely pay out in the end.  Slow down and take care. There is more to this situation than meets the eye.  Midweek is definitely a time that should be spent in moving slowly and with great care.  

The weekend brings in Archangel Uriel: "Your emotions are healing which enables you to open to greater love.  I will help you to release anger and unforgiveness from you heart and mind."  Seems like the last month has been one of healing and processing for everyone.  This weekend is a good time to get a cup of chamomile tea and allow the herbs to do the work.  This is about stepping out of the way and asking spirit to gently help you release that which no longer serves you.  Get a massage or reiki session.  This is about getting out of your own way and allowing spirit to balance and work. Through you.  A good crystal for the weekend is Angelite.  This is a powerful stone that promotes deep rest and soothes the soul by connecting one to the angelic realm. 

Have a great week folks!

Good morning folks!  This week's forecast is taken from Seven Farmer's Earth Magic deck.  the beginning of the week, I pulled the card Stone People: Vigilance.  The guides are wanting you to know that the beginning of the week is a time to stand in your own grace.  By grace we mean non-combative and in alignment with spirit. The attention in the card is immediately drawn to the strength of the stone, but is softened by the element of water.  The  state of the water is very still.  So take a deep cleansing breath and soften your focus.  Now is not the time to engage actively in debate or conflict, but to instead draw upon your resources and stand quietly and unmoving in your own truth.  The middle of the week brings in the card Dance: Celebration.  "And David Danced Before the Lord." Samuel 6:14.  This is a time to connect deeply and with the sacred movement to celebrate life.  Move in unmitigated joy.  Laugh while you move.  Be spontaneous. While you are at it, have a banana split for supper Wednesday.  This is about feeling alive.  Do nothing but that which makes you completely and utterly happy.  Your heart will thank you for it!  For the end of the week, I pulled Music: Harmony.  This is a call to rearrange your surroundings a little during the weekend. Dust, clean and sage.  Often, stagnancy in our life is a reflection of stuck energy.  By cleaning our home and clearing the energy, we are creating a sense of balance all around.  Put a few clear quartz crystals in the four directions of your home.  This will provide continuous cleansing in charge throughout the new week.  Have a wonderful week every one :)

Good Evening folks, hope you had a fabulous Monday!  Today's weekly reading is taken from Doreen Virtues Ascended Masters Oracle Cards.  The Beginning of The week I pulled the card Hina: Freedom.  This card is about connecting with your feminine energy (Yes, that means YOU too Men! )  Soften yourself up a bit and mind your words.  It seems as if you might be a little harsh the beginning of the week, and you don't want to face the consequences of rash words.  Remember, words have power! 

Midweek, We have the card Health and Healing: Hilarion.  With this card, Spirit is making reference to yourself.  Midweek is time to be a little softer to yourself and give some love to your heart chakra. Crystal people, Emerald would be a good stone for you to work with right now.  Also eat deep green heart chakra colored foods-Spinach and Kale will boost your energy and help you get over that hurdle of midweek.  Summing it up, do something good for YOU midweek!  Take a walk or give yourself a pat on the back...you deserve it!

We bring the weeks end with Lakshmi: Flow of Prosperity.  Remember folks, work mirrors life.  This is about being connected to Spirit during your off time so you can have the ongoing connection during your work hours.  If you are off balance and not connected at home, you will feel it at work.  Want to increase your job satisfaction?  Start with a good look in the mirror :-)
Remember to, if we are disconnected, the flow of abundance will slow.  So relax and connect in the best way you know how, and your life will thank you for it!

Hope you have a wonderful and joy-filled week!

Namaste

Weekly Forecast: 11August2014

Posted on August 11, 2014 at 1:59 PM Comments comments ()
First I want to thank all of you for you're thoughts, prayers and healing energy for my friend.  She pulled through surgery with flying colors! 

This week's draw is from The Goddess Oracle.  I truly love this oracle and it carries a very profound energy :-) 

Monday-Hecate.  LOL.  I love this deck, but I didn't want to pull a darker card for all of you.
 Spirit doesn't always give us what we want, Spirit gives us what we need!  Hecate is said to have traveled to the underworld to retrieve Persephone for Demeter.  I think I would like to have a Grandmother as bold as Hecate on my side and all of you would do well to honor the wisdom she offers here.  Hecate stands under the New Moon to invite you to see your shadow self with open eyes.  Your  indecision is not serving you.  It's time to do some shadow work and look at yourself pragmatically.  By pragmatic, I mean without judgement.  Shadow Self does not respond to judgement and avoidance.  That will only stir her up.  Look into her eyes with compassion.  There is a reason she is there and connecting with her will help you get to the root of you indecisiveness, allowing you to reach a decision and move forward.   

Hestia joins us midweek.  Hestia wants you to attend to your home.  This is a connection to loved ones clamoring for your attention.  The last few weeks have been filled with much soul work and it's time to give others the attention they need.  For people with dogs, this is very important as I have a clear vision of some chewed up items.  Attend to needs to avoid chaos!  Midweek calls us to bake (or buy) some cookies and enjoy some family time.  If you live alone, then rent a favorite movie for yourself.  It's time to defuse in an enjoyable way.

And the  card for the weekend is Maya: Illusion.  This is a card of perspective. All that seems so important now, really isn't.  Allow yourself some much needed freedom away from stress.  This earth ship ride isn't about a perfect house-literally and figuratively.  It's about the ride.  We are here to learn and experience.  There is so much more than the here and now!  It's time to get out of the box and live it! I'm sure that you are asking me the question I hear most: "Well what is It all about!?!"  See the pink in the picture?  Start with your heart and the rest will follow.

I hope you have a wonderful, Love filled week!  It will be an enlightening one, I know :)

Weekly Reading 8-4-2014

Good evening folks!  I am fresh off an evening of drumming under the cottonwood tree.  What a lovely feeling connecting like this. I am having problems uploading the pictures right now, but I will try later.  I can always update:)

This week's reading is from Higher Intuitions Oracle
We start out the week with The Horse-Freedom.  This card speaks of the need to move forward and move beyond the boundaries of the every day. It's in the little things, my friends....The tranquil sunset, the cool morning on the way to your car.  Stretch your limits this week and look beyond the ordinary the beginning of the week.  You might be surprised what you find when align your views.  The drudgery of everyday life always contains the unexpected.  The Joy is in finding it.  

The midweek card is The Butterfly-Build Your Wings.  It bears noting that the specific butterfly pictured is the Monarch Butterfly.  When I think of Monarchs, I think of the great migration.  This card signifies a change taking place or a moving forward.  Where are you migrating to? Ar you making progress or are you stagnant.  What can you release so that you can move forward?  Midweek is a time of transformation and a time of travel.  It would be a good time to get that journal out and motivate yourself to spend some times noting your thoughts and feelings.   As a caterpillar, the monarch goes inside a cocoon and away from the eyes of the outside world, makes it's transformation. 

The end of the week brings us the Hedgehog-Let it Be.  Time to let go of any worry, as this does not serve you. Worrying about how the bills are paid is not going to help your situation.  The time is now to place your faith in spirit and to know that it is going to  work out.  take note of the pink lotus flower in the foreground of the photo.  This is telling me two things about my readers, first there is a continuing opening that is motivated by the middle of the week.  The lotus symbolizes to me a beautiful connection to spirit and an opening of doors.  If you are doing your release work, good things will follow.  The stagnancy that you have been experiencing will soon fade and the result will be joyful connection.  Also, the pink flower is very pronounced.  Pink is a heart chakra color.  Grab yourself some rose quartz and meditate with it.  Your heart chakra will thank you for it and the answers will flow.

It was a very busy week and I didn't make time to post my weekly reading. Shame on me!  I love that this card came out of an angel deck and it's a power animal.  It ties in nicely with another animal I will share with you at a later point.  Unicorn is a lovely power animal who reminds us to connect with our magical self.  This weekend it is suggested that you do two things: first and foremost, we have a continuing pattern of the inner child work that we discussed two weeks ago.  Now that you have begun the work, it's time to take that inner child to the park.  Notice the magic around you!  In my yard, my zinnias bloom a beautiful violet hue!  I bet there are fairies about :-)  Secondly, this is the time to move forward with any ventures you have been working on!  although it seems an uphill battle, don't give up! Procrastination is not your friend. BTW, young men who are going to pop the question, the timing appears to be right!  This is the go ahead for you. (I feel as if this will resonate with someone reading this)  Have a great weekend of sunshine and joy my friends.

The Modern Day Shaman

Posted on July 30, 2014 at 11:14 AM Comments comments ()
The modern day shaman faces a conundrum unique to our ancestors who walked before.  The need to have a day to day income and to make a balance to pay the bills. We have the same need as our mothers and fathers before us to go out into nature, connect with our guides and learn.  We must spend our time studying and working in spirit.  The village healer in the days long ago was cared for by society, or paid in chickens :-) In this day, we have the added stress of producing income.  The green kind.  The kind that pays the electric bill and puts braces on our children's teeth.  We are faced with the desire to live in a cabin, but the truth is we must survive in our society.

The result?  Many of us take day jobs.  Sure we accept money for our services, and we dream of spending each day in service to others, not having to go in and live the grind of society.  Truth be told, we signed up for this walk and it's challenges.  How do we do this?  We embrace the lessons we came here to do.  

I have become clever and determined.  I find the shamanic walk in the everyday life.  I do ceremony at 12:30 in the morning after a  full eight hour shift at my day job.  I light the sacred candle at the midnight hour...literally!  I drum whenever I have five minutes too pick up my drum and sound it.  I drink my coffee in the early morning, outside.  In doing this, I feel all that is around. I hear the birds, I great cardinal and crow.  Each Sunday, I wake up like a child out of recess...I shower, and rush to the nearest park where I walk among my tree brothers and hear the call of hawk. 

The walk of the shaman is a blessing and a challenge.  I have learned friends, never to let go to my heart's calling.  I work and pay bills, take clients on a moment's notice, and drum on!  That is what I chose, and that's how I roll.  My friends, today I would like to challenge you to take five minutes and devote yourself to spirit.  When you walk outside, don't rush to your car with your nose in the phone.  Instead, look up to the sky and thank great creator for the beauty of the sun on your face.  listen to the son of the robin.  If you begin to make a practice of hearing the world around and seeing with open eyes, you will open yourself to new dimensions!  Modern day shamanism does not mean becoming an armchair shaman!  Feel life to the fullest, your heart will thank you for it.
