Theme for the Year: Effortless

Every year in January I connect with Spirit and ask my Higher Power for a theme for the year. I ask that my theme be one word, and one that I can easily remember and refer back to. Last year my theme was: shine. I can say that my word completely reflected my experience throughout the year. I had more opportunities to use my gifts than ever before. I received a lot of new clients and students. It truly was a year to remember.

This year Spirit gave me the word effortless. My intention that my earth experience be effortless in every way. Spirit gave me my word about a month ago. Immediately I put the word into action. Whenever I would get frustrated or things seemed difficult, I would remind myself of my word and circumstances seemed to shift so that things became easier.

I am not questioning Spirit on why They gave me my word a month early. Maybe I needed to hear it. December tends to be a difficult month and this year it was EFFORTLESS.
I suggest you take a little time and receive your theme for the year. You will be amazed at how accurate your word will reflect your experience.
If you like, I would love to hear the word Spirit gives you!

The Hierophant

Today is a day to think about others and about your part in the Higher Plan. Whatever your belief system think about how you fit into the Big Scheme of Life and what you can do to make the world a better place. Whether it is picking up trash on the road or donating to a worthy charity, remember that one small act done in love makes the world a little brighter.

Two of Pentacles

Do you feel like you are juggling more than one important aspect of your life? Are you having trouble deciding between more than one option? Sometimes our busy lives make us feel like we have to decide between that which makes our heart sing and that which is practical!  Just for today, know that you can find Joy no matter what you are juggling. Follow your heart.

Seven of wands

Do you feel backed into a corner today? Do you feel you are fighting a battle but the opponent is unclear? Sometimes our biggest battles are with ourselves. Lay down your need to win the battle. Sometimes surrender is the best option. When we surrender our need to have a particular outcome, Spirit can work for us and bring about what is best for everyone concerned.

Card of the day- knight of swords

For the past couple of weeks I have been posting a "card of the day" on my Facebook page. This has been really popular and I thought I would try to post it here on my blog today.
I am not sure if this will be an every day posting. However for now I am getting a lot of positive feedback so I am going to keep it up, at least for awhile.
Today's card is the knight of swords.
Something involving conflict or a difficult conversation may come and go quickly in your experience today. You may have a short term relationship or contact with someone with whom there are words that cut you or make you feel uneasy or wounded.
Remember that this too shall pass. Pick yourself up and move on. This is not going to permanently scar you. You are strong.
I send love and joy to you if you find yourself the recipient of this message. Be strong. Love yourself and let this go.

New Moon in Libra and Breaking Curses

Here on the east coast we will be experiencing the new moon in Libra at precisely 8:06 pm.

In previous blogs I  have expressed my preference in calling the moon when it is completely dark the dark moon, and that first little sliver of moon you see perhaps the next night the new moon, but I am in the minority.

I like to think about the phases of the moon as being symbolic of our lives. When the moon is waning from full to dark, it is time to think about releasing things from your lives.

I received an email from someone this week who was interested in breaking a curse. Do I believe in curses? I believe in the power of the spoken word, so in a sense, I guess you could say yes. I believe in the power of intention, in the power of belief, and in the power of vows. I believe that sometimes generational tendencies are passed down from our ancestors that may need to be broken. The dark moon is the perfect time to break these.

Rituals are powerful because of our belief in them. They are also powerful if they have been performed in the past by others. It is like the difference between cutting a path through the woods with a machete, or traveling down a paved highway. If many have traveled the path before, or performed the ritual before, it has more power. If we believe it will work then it will. Our belief is everything.

If someone has spoken out in gossip, in contempt, or with the intention of harming you in some way, I believe it is possible that you may suffer the effects of those words. Your vibration will determine to what extreme you will experience the effects of said curse. However, by keeping your vibration high, by speaking out and breaking the power of any words spoken against you (or words you have thought or spoken out against yourself) you can break any power words have against you.

The dark moon is the perfect time to do this! The great thing is that any ritual that means something to you will work, but I am giving you some suggestions here.

To release something out of your life and to add the power of the dark moon to your ritual, you will need to perform it sometime before or exactly at the time of the dark moon. After that, the moon will begin to wax, and you will need to be thinking about what you want to bring into your life. It is perfect if you release what you want to get rid of right before the time of the dark moon, and then add in light and love to the places in your energy field that were affected right after.

Of course make the words you speak your own. I like to incorporate the directions and numbers into my ritual so I like to walk counterclockwise in a circle nine times (the number of completion) while speaking out something like this:

Say aloud.. I now break any curses spoken or intended for me. I release to the light any and all vows, beliefs and intentions, whether conscious or unconscious from this lifetime and any previous or simultaneous lifetimes in other dimensions or this one. I send love and light to all souls which participated in these curses and release them with love from any karma related to these curses or intentions. I now declare any and all curses to be broken and released to the light.  Blessed be.

I like to invite the Angels and Beings of Love and Light into my rituals. You can ask your Highest Self, your Soul, or whomever you call on that is your Higher Power to be there with you to give power to your ritual. This ritual crosses over any belief system and will work with whatever belief system you call your own.

Those of us who walk around in the light sometimes devalue those who seem to suffer from bad luck or "curses" and claim that curses only exist if we believe in them. However, I believe that words, thoughts and intentions do have power and we do have the power to break anything that is affecting us in our day to day life. 

Even if you do not believe you are the victim of a curse, this ritual can help you. Change the words and release vows, beliefs, intentions, and tendencies that are no longer for your highest good. Do this before the actual time of the dark moon and then after the dark moon bring in love and light into your energy field and focus on the emotions of love and joy. Visualize the healing emotions as an elixer that is healing all of the wounded areas of your thoughts, emotions, and physical body.

Go away from this powerful ritual knowing that you are healed and that a new day has dawned in your life! Keep your vibration high by focusing on love and joy. Love yourself and love others. Love the ones who you may believe have bestowed the curse or bad intentions on you.

Love rules all.

Blessed be.

Prayers to a Hurricane

My dad was a champion prayer warrior. His specialty was praying away hurricanes and detrimental weather conditions. I saw him more than one time speak to a storm and then subsequently watch the storm calm down or even disappear. Hurricanes changed courses. I remember one time he came to visit and the first four days he was in Virginia from his home inFlorida it rained every day. Now he didn't just pray away rain because it infringed on his plans. Normally he prayed away storms that were going to cause great loss or damage. However, this time he had had enough. He spoke to the heavy downpours and told the rain to cease. Within a few hours the sun was shining and we went about our visit. About two weeks later I had to call him to ask him to call off his declaration because it hadn't rained since he prayed that day. He did and it rained that very day.

We on the east coast are facing a hurricane. I was thinking about dad yesterday, who would have been praying away the hurricane. At his death bed I had told his soul that I would take up his mantle of praying away storms. However, my belief system is a little different than dad's. I believe that we are in a dance with the Spirit of the Earth and that everything has consciousness. When the course of one thing on earth changes, everything is affected. I don't presume to know the highest and best good, even though I would think that the highest and best would be that the hurricane go out to sea and harm no one.

I also believe that everything has a soul and consciousness. I have learned how to communicate with plants, animals, nature, and spirits by connecting with the love in my heart and Highest Self and then sending a stream of love and light to the soul of that with which I want to communicate. The highest and best thing we can do is to connect with the love in our soul and then shine that love outward into our world.

Yesterday there was a break in the rain and I was able to go out for my run. While I was running I connected with the soul of this hurricane and sent it love. I asked for mercy and that the storm would affect us all in a way that was the highest and best for everything and everyone concerned. It is not how my dad would have handled it and I am not sure he was in agreement with my technique. One of my dad's stipulations in his prayers was that the prayer of agreement made our prayers more powerful. Sometimes he would call me and ask me to agree with him when he prayed over storms and other important happenings.

I felt it would be great to put it out to all of you who read my blogs to connect with your Highest Self and whatever Highest Source that you communicate with. Connecting with the love in your soul automatically connects you to the Highest Powers. Send a beam of love to Hurricane Joaquin and ask for mercy. Ask that the highest and best come to pass and that the least harm come to the inhabitants of the Earth. Here is a possible prayer to say:

Hurricane Joaquin, I send you love from my heart. I honor your soul and your spirit and ask for mercy. I ask for the highest and best to occur from you and that the least possible damage come from your chosen path. If it is agreeable to you, I ask that you change course and head out to sea. WE all as a group send you love and ask for mercy.

And so it is.

Message from an Out of Practice Blogger

Since 2009 I have been sharing messages from the Spirit world via my blog. Sometimes the messages came directly from my Guides, Angels, Higher Beings of Love and Light, or Whoever was talking to me. Sometimes the messages were just my own thoughts inspired by Spirit.

Lately life has gotten in the way of my blogging.

This does not mean I have not been tuning into Spirit or that Spirit has not been talking to me.

Last year I took a part time position at my long time career as a clerk at the Post Office. This was to facilitate my "other" work. I began to supplement my income with weddings, readings, classes, and events. It was going very well. Except for one thing.

I was exhausted.

I was getting up at 5 am Monday through Friday, going to work for six hours at the Post Office, then in the afternoon I saw clients, marketed myself, prepared for classes I was teaching and wrote wedding ceremonies for the weddings I performed mostly on the weekends. On the weekends I taught classes, did events and weddings.

At the beginning of this year I took a position at the Post Office which would allow me to sleep a little longer in the morning. It was a full time position, so I had the intention of postponing all my "other" stuff until I retired. I finished up the series of classes I had already started, performed the weddings I had already booked, and discontinued most of my marketing and advertising. Guess what.

Spirit did not need me to advertise my services apparently.

When I told Spirit I was done "putting myself out there" and that I would only take clients that "They" sent me, the doors seem to swing wide open.

People found me.

As a result, this year I have had to schedule time to spend with family, grandkids, and myself.

My blog has suffered. I barely have time to check my emails in the morning before heading out to work. I glance at them at lunch and in the evening. I check my social media. I have shared lots of inspirational quotes and blogs written by others because I have been too busy to write any blogs myself or create any posters containing my own quotes.

I love the work I do for Spirit. I love reading for people, connecting with clients Spirit Guides and loved ones on the other side. I love finding lost pieces of clients souls through the Shamanic practice of soul retrieval. I love joining couples in marriage. I love teaching classes on psychic development and shamanic practices.

If I am not posting on social media and writing blogs with messages from the Spirit world, don't assume I have quit or am no longer connecting to Spirit.

Here is the message in this long and maybe too detailed description of my life this year.

Sometimes our plans are not Spirit's plans.

Sometimes we feel that our career and our spiritual work should be one and the same. I have met so many people who want to earn a living doing their spiritual work and YES I love this idea. However, a lot of people who I meet at the Post Office I would never meet in a session in my living room or on the phone or via Skype. They could not pay for a reading, or a Reiki session. Maybe all they need is for someone to help them find a missing piece of mail. Maybe all they need is for me to send them love and light while talking to them during a routine call to the Post Office. I always start the day by asking for love and light to go through the phone lines to anyone who I talk to and for love and light to go ahead of me to anyone I interact with while performing my duties at the Post Office.

When I told Spirit, and I tell Spirit this all the time, that I want to be of service, I do not qualify that statement with, I want to be of service giving readings, teaching classes or doing soul retrievals. I say, I want to be of service.

When I surrendered to Spirit the how and the when and all the other details, life has opened up so many doors for me.

I am very grateful to Spirit for the opportunity to spread love and light to those who would never come into contact with love and light under any other circumstance.

At some point maybe I will shed my Post Office career for a full time position doing readings and soul retrievals. This has not yet occurred.

So when I get up in the morning now for my before work run, I am sending love and light to the inhabitants of the houses I pass, to the critters who are out and about in the early morning hours, and to every person I will interact with during the day. I am sending love and light to the hurricanes that are forming out in the Pacific, to the people who will find themselves on the news, to the political candidates, and to you, the reader of my blog.

May you find love and joy today and have an experience that allows you to feel the presence of Spirit.

May you find the answer to a question you have asked of the Spirit world.

May you love every cell in  your body and release anything that is not love.

May you find the freedom in standing in your own power and embracing the power that is YOU.

And may you find love outside of  yourself by first finding love within yourself.

Yes I am planning some classes in the fall. I am always available for phone consultations and also in person. You can contact me HERE.

Love and Light and JOY to you, right now in this moment and in all the moments to come.

Independence Day!

Tomorrow is the day we celebrate Independence. But are we independent?

Originally we were under the control of England, and living a life under the cover of a country miles across the ocean became difficult. We secured our independence, but then a certain class of people found themselves the lords over another class of people. Even though our forefathers declared that we were all created equal, what they really meant was that all the white men were created equal. Those of other colors or other genders were not included.

Over the years portions of our population have found it necessary to remind other portions of our population that yes, we are created equal, and we all deserve equal treatment under the law. Sometimes it has been necessary to fight for these rights.

This blog is not about politics, believe it or not.

No matter what your beliefs are, or where you stand on equal rights for all citizens, I am here to declare that the one that keeps us enslaved more than any one else is ourself! Our own thoughts hold us captive. Even if the law declares that we are equal, if we feel that we are a victim, we will experience our lives as a victim. We will notice circumstances that appear to reinforce our belief.

I have found myself constantly fighting an underlying belief that those of other belief systems have a dim view of what I do, and may be sending energy (or prayers) my way that is not in line with my highest expression of my soul.

It is time that we woke up and realized that the only one holding us back from experiencing the highest expression of our souls is ourselves.

Let us take this Independence Day to declare INDEPENDENCE from limited thinking!

We are light. We are the creators of our destiny. It is up to us to declare our intentions for how we want to live our lives!

Let us not limit Spirit when we declare into the realm of Spirit our intentions.

For example.

I have a client who recently declared independence from a marriage that was once delightful but had ceased to be so. She had relocated, and, as expected, found herself having good days and bad days.  She had decided to buy a house and was right on the verge of closing when an unexpected hiccup showed up to halt or at least postpone the closing. She had already hired movers. She had already given notice at her current location. She was distraught!

She came to me to find out the best plan of action.

We decided to do a Full Moon ritual calling in the best solution. Knowing that this was the house she wanted to live in, we wrote the address on a piece of paper and placed it in the middle of the floor. We danced around the piece of paper, declaring to the Universe that we were calling in for her this house, without expectation of how this was to occur. We beat our drums and rattled our intentions to the Universe, the same way Joshua led the Isrealites around the city of Jericho when they claimed it as their own. Now I am not advocating displacing another group of people so you can have what is theirs, but the ritual worked for them and has worked for me numerous times to secure something I wanted, as long as it did not interfere with or cause harm to anyone else in the process!

The next day she called and was ecstatic!

The owners and her had worked out a solution and she was moving forward with moving in to the house!

She declared her independence from limited thinking! She allowed Spirit to work out a solution to a perceived limitation from her living her life in the house of her dreams!

Today, declare your independence from limited thinking!

Allow Spirit to find solutions to problems that are keeping you living a life that is less than spectacular.

Celebrate your independence from anything that is stealing  your joy or keeping you from living a life of peace and abundance!

As our forefathers declared, we have been given the inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

If you desire help in manifesting your best life or direction from spirit in manifesting your heart's desires, please feel free to contact me here. Life is meant to be enjoyed!

Questions and Answers About Soul Retrieval

Shamanic journeying is going into the unseen realms of Spirit looking for answers. Not unlike delving into a small hole or cavern, the possibilities are endless as to what I may find when I take the plunge into the Spirit world.

Sometimes I may not find what my clients were hoping for. But I will find what they need, according to Spirit. I am never in control of the journeys. I leave that up to my Spirit Guides.

I wanted to cover a few questions and answers about journeying and soul retrieval.

How do I know if I could benefit from a soul retrieval?

It is my opinion that almost all of us could benefit from a soul retrieval. We all live our lives on this earth. No one has lived in the perfect environment, with the perfect parents, the perfect situation their entire lives. Even if they had, their interpretation of that perfect life I am sure included some hurts and wounds to their soul.

As we grow as human beings and evolve in our journey to our self, sometimes pieces of our soul which were lost come back on their own. Sometimes we may have an "aha" moment and we will realize the truth of an experience that brought us pain. At that moment of revelation, the lost soul piece will come back. We may have been lied to from one parent about another. When I left my first husband, he convinced my daughter that I had abandoned her. I remember when my mom passed my daughter and I took a trip to Florida. She was looking at some old photo albums of her childhood, and I saw this look in her eye. She realized that I was not the neglectful mom she had perceived me to be. I believe at that moment a piece of her soul came back, without any ritual, without any drumming, without any shaman calling it back. 

However, sometimes the pieces are not so easy to find. We may not have noticed when they left. They may have been (unconsciously) stolen away from us by another person. We may  not remember the original event. In some cases, the soul loss may have not yet occurred. (Yes I once did a soul retrieval for a person and the pieces I got back she had  not lost yet.)

Why do soul retrievals cost so much?

Ha this is one I hear a lot.

When I first became acquainted with soul retrieval, and even to this day, I have not found a shaman or practitioner who will perform a soul retrieval for less than $200 and most charge more. I think it is because a shamanic practitioner pays a great deal for training and years of practice. Kind of like I guess why do doctors charge so much. The  other reason is that people tend to value things that cost them something. Bottom line, there is an exchange of energy. You will not benefit from a session which has cost you nothing. The exchange of energy is out of whack and the soul retrieval will not be as good as it could have been had the exchange of energy been more equal. My current fee is $100 and that is negotiable depending on the situation.
You can probably find students of shamanism who will perform soul retrievals for a reduced price or for free. Kind of like going to the beauty school for a haircut. You are paying for experience. I have some wonderful students who are now doing soul retrievals and I don't ask them what they charge.

I sometimes will do soul retrievals for a reduced price if Spirit leads me. I do not want someone to go around without their soul parts just because they cannot pay to get them back. Usually there is some sort of barter involved. I don't want the recipient to be indebted to me or to Spirit. 

Do I have to be in your presence to get my soul pieces back?

You will hear different information from different practitioners on this one. The woman who trained me taught me that absolutely you have to be in the person's presence. However, before I trained with her check her out here I had been doing soul retrievals on my own for friends, family, and friends of friends for several years free of charge for the most part. I had done some in person, but many I had done long distance, with verifiable results. I like to call myself the "no rules healer" in that I believe that there are no hard fast rules to anything. I recently did a soul retrieval for a client in Texas (I live in Virginia) and I blew her soul parts back into her body over the phone. Spirit does not live in time and space and so I am open to whatever my Guides tell me.

What will I feel after the soul retrieval?

Let me be the first to tell you that the after affects are as numerous as the stars in the sky.

Sometimes you feel nothing at first. A few weeks or months later you might notice that something that used to push your button no longer bothers you.

One of my clients lost twenty pounds immediately.

When my shaman teacher performed a soul retrieval on me, I swear that the grass was greener, the sky was bluer, the sun shone brighter.

When I got my soul back from Jesus, read about it here, I was an angry little bitch for at least two days.

I have had clients feel depressed for a period of time. Remember that when the soul left the body that piece of your soul left for a reason. Sometimes you will re-experience emotions that you were experiencing when you lost the soul piece to begin with.

I am always available to talk through with you the emotions you feel after the session is over. I recommend that you revisit the emotions you were feeling when the soul piece left. Welcome that part of yourself back into your body. Send him or her lots of love love love. Remind that part of yourself that the hurt is in the past and now things are better. Release with love any perpetrators or soul stealers. Accept the event as a part of your past but no longer necessary for your experience. 

Of course the ultimate goal is JOY. I want you to be in your body, with all your soul pieces intact, enjoying life on this earth realm in your body. When I discovered that I  had no where to go, no where to be, nothing to accomplish really except for JOY..I reclaimed a big piece of my soul which I had always projected into the future... someday, when this happens, I will be fulfilled...
When I brought that part of my soul back into my body and said, all I need to do is experience joy now... WOW. The pressure was off! I was free!

In no way am I suggesting you have to get a soul retrieval from ME. I want you to find the healer that connects best with your soul. However, if you would like to work with me, you can contact me HERE.

Blessings to you as you embark upon the most important adventure of your life, your journey to your soul.

Full Moon in Sagittarius and Mercury Retrograde

Have you been feeling the affects of the Mercury Retrograde? We are about half way through now, with Mercury going direct on the 11th, but we may feel the affects of it for the most part of June. I know a lot of you, me included, don't really look forward to Mercury Retrograde. Communications and travel tend to be affected. That includes electronics and other communication devices.

Last year my hubby and I booked a trip to Cancun. I mistakenly didn't check the chart before booking the trip and the day of our trip was the first day of a Mercury Retrograde. We had some setbacks in our travels and some annoyances with communications with hotel personnel. We also had some issues with internet access. However, all in all, we had a wonderful trip and I came back with some amazing memories and probably the best vacation ever.

That being said, I still believe that for the most part, we create our reality. Yes sometimes the moon and the planets and the stars affect the things that come across our path. Yes, Mercury Retrograde brought some challenges our way, however hubby love and I overcame the challenges and had the best vacation of our lives!

Sometimes I think the Universe or Spirit sends us things like Mercury Retrograde so that we have the opportunity to take a step back from the hustle and bustle of life. Perhaps our electronics act up so that we will look up from our computers and our phones and our tablets and look at the life that is right in front of us. I like to leave my phone at the house when I go out for a walk or a run or to work out in the yard. I want to be completely present in whatever I am experiencing. Yes sometimes I like to have my phone around to capture a picture of what I am experiencing but how many times do we miss out on so much of life that is right in front of us because we are too busy checking our phones?

The full moon on Tuesday is calling on us to celebrate our lives. Think deeply about life and our purpose here at this time and this place. We have come to this time and this place for a purpose. The highly spiritual number 11 is playing a huge role in the stars and planets at this time. Look at the things that are going on in your life with the thoughts of the big picture. What is the higher purpose of those things that are going on in your life at this time. What signs and symbols are showing up in your dreams and in your everyday life?

If you choose to honor the full moon with a ritual, be sure to use the element of fire in your ritual. Sagittarius is a fire sign. You can honor the full moon by lighting a candle or dancing around a fire pit in your backyard. Meditate on those things that you are drawing into your life and thank Spirit for the power of the moon in your intentions.

Remember to set your stones and crystals outside. They love the power of the moon and you will find their energy restored as they bask in the glow of the moon!

Most of all, don't dread any stage of the moon or the planets. Our intentions and expectations play a big role in what we end up experiencing. If we expect to meet up with all the crazy people when it is a full moon, guess what will happen! If we expect to have communication mishaps and misunderstandings during a Mercury Retrograde, the Universe will not disappoint.

Let us honor the planets and the stars and the moon no matter what stage they are in. Yes, we are affected by the planets and the moon, but more importantly, our beliefs and our expectations affect our experiences day by day.

Expect to greet each morning with love and joy, and meet each new experience with the expectation of growth and evolution. We are here to enjoy our lives and to grow from our day by day experiences.

The Labyrinth

Sometime last year I went to visit my good friend Hali. She is a labyrinth enthusiast, and has one in her yard. She and I have been friends for many years, but the idea to put one in my own backyard never crossed my mind until our last visit sometime last year. I had decided to walk her labyrinth and suddenly felt inspired. I knew it was not one of those projects you can start and complete in one day, and somehow this is a challenge for me. When I get inspired, it has to be done, and it has to be done right now! (here is my good friend Hali's BLOG)

My first job of course was to connect with the Spirit of the Land and ask permission to put a labyrinth in the yard and then to ask where the labyrinth wanted to be placed. I always ask permission of the land and any items that I use such as rocks,sticks, flowers, etc before taking it upon myself to start a project. I love flowers and sitting in the backyard. One of my favorite ongoing projects is my pond. 

Today my goal was to put some flowers in some pots in various places throughout the yard. I had asked each plant where it wanted to be placed and which pots they wanted to be in. I asked Spirit if there was anything in particular I should do. Spirit told me to make sure that everything was to be in threes. So I went about arranging the flower pots in groupings of three. I put three flowers in each pot.

 Three is the number of manifesting and is a high spiritual number. In Christianity there is the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. We are made up of three parts: spirit, mind and body. Last night hubby love and I were watching a show that was talking about the constellation Orion and its significance and what I noticed was that there were three stars grouped together in a row. I am sure other belief systems also have three as a significant number. However, this was the message I received, so I went about honoring Spirit's request.

After I was done, I sat down to connect once again with Spirit and after awhile my gaze went over to the pile of rocks I had been collecting over in the part of the yard where I had been contemplating placing the labyrinth. I went online and got a pattern.

I had wanted to have the opening to the labyrinth in the east, but after a bit of contemplation, realized that if I did that the focal point would be facing away from the house, I realized that there were two trees that offered me the perfect opening to the labyrinth. I know that if you read directions on how to create a labyrinth, there is a somewhat complicated system for marking out the path with tape or string, but I began to use the power of my visualization and just began placing rocks.  I would walk the proposed path and move them accordingly, after asking if they wanted to be part of the project of course.

You can see the two trees which will be the beginning of the labyrinth and the two stones which will eventually be the center. I have called out to the labyrinth to show me what is to be in the center. 

Stay tuned as I will post pics on occasion as I make progress!

My goal is that the labyrinth be a place to connect with Spirit, however you may define that. Most of my neighbors are Christian, and of course I want them to feel welcome to walk the labyrinth and connect with Jesus. However, I honor all paths to the Divine, and I want any seeker who comes to visit to feel welcome to walk the labyrinth and connect with that Power that connects us all to the Bigger Picture. As long as LOVE is the focal point, I see no reason to draw lines of separation between us.

If you have rocks that have not yet found a purpose, ask them if they would like to be part of a spiritual project. If you live near me and feel that you have a rock that is asking to be part of this labyrinth, feel free to come over and place it in the labyrinth.

Let us all lay down the things that separate us and let us connect to Spirit in ways that give us joy and meaning. Let us honor one another and whatever ways we find to connect to Spirit, or to our own soul. We all spring from One Source, and we are all brothers and sisters walking the path to the center of our own soul.

Soul Retrieval 101

Most of us have experienced soul loss at one time or another. We have all lost pieces of ourselves through lost loves, trauma, or many other experiences in life in which we have given parts of our soul to situations, people and experiences.

We have made vows to others .... "till death do us part"... "I will always love you"... "I am nothing without you".. "you complete me". These sentiments, although we meant them at the time, put us in danger of giving a piece of our soul to someone else. I am not saying that we cannot love another person without giving them a piece of our soul, but when the relationship ends, or changes, your soul does not just automatically come back to you.

What about childhood friendships? Have you ever found yourself frequently thinking about someone from your past who you haven't seen in years?

Remember that we are all connected. Our words and our thoughts create our experiences. If we constantly think about a person from our past, or we talk about them, or we pine over a lost love, or even if we badmouth them, we are in danger of either losing a piece of our soul or stealing a piece which belongs to someone else! We create these invisible strings tying us to our past. I am not saying that every time we pine over a lost love or think about a hurt or a loss we lose or give away a piece of our soul, but once we find ourselves in the habit of thinking or speaking about an event or a person from our past frequently, it is a real possibility.

Remember that everything in life has its own energy. The chair you are sitting on, the trees in your backyard, your favorite shoes. Anything that you have experienced in your life that has generated a strong emotion has left an imprint upon the chair, the tree, and the favorite pair of shoes. So in addition to its own energy, there is a small piece of you that remains with each thing you touch. The emotional response any particular memory emits is a good sign as to whether you may have left a piece of your soul behind.

One really good indication is our dreams.

Do you ever have that dream about being lost?

I think we all probably have that dream at one time or another. Now this dream does not always mean your soul is lost, but frequently this is the case. We are such very large multidimensional beings. There is so much we do not know. I will find myself having this dream over and over during particular times in my life. Sometimes I know intuitively that a piece of my soul has wandered off or gotten stolen, and sometimes I just know that as wanderers on the earth we are all looking for our home, and sometimes we forget that home is not somewhere off in the stars. Our home is here, inside our body, inside our consciousness that is here and now. Life becomes so much more enjoyable when we are not looking for fulfillment or joy in some other place and time. So often we send pieces of our soul into the future.. to "someday, when I find my true love, I will be happy," or "someday, when I have the perfect job and the perfect house and the perfect children... then I will be fulfilled."  May I suggest that it is entirely possible that we may never meet up with the pieces of our soul which we have sent away into the future. It is so important to be here, now. You need all the pieces of your soul with you, today, and every day.

As you can see, there are a multitude of scenarios which could have precipitated the experience of soul loss. We all could probably benefit from a session with someone trained in getting back those pieces of our soul which we have lost. However, there are some steps you can take to get back your own soul!

Every morning... well okay not every morning but most mornings when I think about it, I call back my soul from any universes or realities in which it may have wandered off. It is pretty simple, really. I just say..

"I call back any pieces of my soul that may have been lost or wandered off...and I give back any pieces of souls that may have attached to me or that I may have stolen unintentionally."

You should instantly feel more like yourself. If you still feel like a part of you is missing, or that something is off, you should ask your soul to call to you the healer that is right for you. If you feel that person is me, you can contact me through my website.

We all  need to be in our bodies experiencing as much joy as we can handle. Every second in our bodies should be a joyful expression of our soul in ecstasy. We don't need artificial stimulants to live a life of joy every day. We just need to be in our skin, looking out of our own eyes with joyful expectation.

What gives you joy? Just for today, look within yourself and see if all of you is in there. If not, go on a hunting trip to find yourself. It is worth the effort!

Soul Retrievals and Jesus

People often ask me what a soul retrieval is and how does it benefit us.

A couple of years ago, I wrote a couple of blogs explaining some of these terms. you can read about it here. In a short version, a soul retrieval is when a shaman or shamanic practitioner goes into the nonphysical world to get back pieces of your soul which you have lost during traumatic or emotionally charged events, or pieces of yourself that you have given away or lost through deep soul connections.

We are familiar with the many love songs out there which talk about giving our soul away to someone who we love. At some point the relationship may end, but our soul stays with that person.

Or possibly there was a traumatic event in your life in which you felt like a part of your disappeared, or got lost.

Have you ever had that dream where you are lost and can't find your way home? It may be a message from your soul that a part of you can't find its way back to you.

How about a belief system in which you are asked to give your soul to some Higher Power?

Yeah. About that. I know about that.

I grew up a born again Christian. The whole philosophy I grew up with was the fact that if we didn't give our soul to Jesus we were doomed to Hell. I did that. I gave my soul to Jesus. Many times. (I was afraid that the first time didn't take. I didn't feel any different afterward and thought I should have.)

Now may I interject here that I have no issues with Jesus. He and I talk frequently.

As a matter of fact, the other day, (before my recent experience with appendicitis), I was at the gym on my favorite piece of equipment, the elliptical. For some reason I find it easy to connect the the Other Realms while on that machine. I haven't figured out the why, but I am not one to argue with Spirit.

So anyway, here I am, pumping my arms and my legs on this piece of gym equipment, when the number 333 pops up on the screen in front of me. This is a sign to me that Someone Upstairs wants to talk to me. Okay like it is a phone call from the Ascended Masters..and Jesus is one of only a couple of Ascended Masters I communicate with.

So I went on up to the Upper Realms. And there is Jesus. We talked a bit about some pretty cool things, which I may talk about some other time. This is a blog about soul retrieval.

So Jesus says to me, Oh by the way, I have something that belongs to you.

OH yeah? What?

You gave me this a long time ago and I wanted to give it back to you. It is a piece of your soul.

Say what? Jesus stole a piece of my soul? NO I gave it to Him. And He wanted to give it back.

Don't you want to keep it? I protested. You probably should. I did give it to you.

No, I want you to have it back. You need all the pieces of your soul.  This is your soul. This is your life. I am always here to help you but I don't want your soul.

Really? That doesn't really fit with Christian philosophy, I protested. I thought that giving you my soul was my only way of securing salvation.

Hmmm. Jesus said. But you don't really believe that anymore, do you?

Well, no. But you are Jesus. You might know a little bit more than me.

Yes, well you know very well that what you say and what someone hears are very often two different things. A lot of the things I said were misinterpreted. So many people think they are doing themselves a favor giving me their souls. I have them all here. When they are ready I will give them back.

I think that most people think you are probably better at running their lives than they are. Maybe they are looking to you to guide them so that they don't make any mistakes. Or maybe they want to make sure they get into heaven.

Would you please tell everyone that they are doing fine. Yes I am always here to help them. I am always here to guide them. But they need their souls. I am here to show them that they can access Divine Wisdom themselves.

So there it is. I did a soul retrieval on myself while on the elliptical machine at the gym and Jesus was the one giving me my soul back.

What happened after that?

Well, to be honest, for the next couple of days I found myself being very angry, saying words I don't normally say, losing my temper, yelling at other drivers on the highway, and being a rather nasty little bitch. Hmm. I have never ever been that person. Maybe the soul part I gave to Jesus was not a very nice person. Or maybe she was just angry that she had been gone away from me for so long and had missed out on so much of my life. I did give her away at a very young age.

So after a couple of days, I finally figured out that this little nasty bitch that had come into my body needed to be comforted. I told her that I was sorry to have given her away. I told her that surely being with Jesus was not that bad that she had to act out this way.  I told her that I had a pretty good life now and that I would like her to be a part of it, but the angry part needed to be dealt with and let go.

So I did. I let go of all the anger. Anger at the things that I had believed that I had learned were not true. Anger that the things I expected Jesus to take care of He had not done. Anger that in His infinite wisdom he had realized that I needed to do some things for myself. Anger that Jesus had not lived up to my expectations. Apparently He did not like the job of making my life work. Some things I needed to do and learn for myself.

I suddenly realized that Jesus had given me the gift of myself.

I now believe that Jesus never wanted to be given our souls. He never threatened to send us to eternal damnation if we didn't. His message was one of love, and forgiveness, and acceptance. He wants us to know that we have the power within ourselves to create a wonderful life of love and happiness and joy. I know this because I live it. And Jesus is not mad at  me for taking my soul back. Hell, He is the one who gave it back to me!

I know for some of you this is dangerously close to heresy! The whole concept of salvation is in question! I say, YES! Question everything! Only keep those parts of your belief system that feel good in your soul! If you feel wonderful with Jesus holding your soul, then I am sure He is safely watching over it for you!  For me, I feel good having all my soul parts with me. Jesus is always there for me to turn to for advice or help, But the choice is mine. I believe that we are here on this earth experiencing this life not to benefit Jesus, but to benefit our own souls. Not to fight demons and win the earth back from the devil. Any devils we need to conquer are mostly within ourselves.

Let us lay down all of our thoughts and beliefs about God, and life, and really look within ourselves and feel what rings true to our souls. When we really feel joy in our existence on this earth plane, then we will know we have found the answer.

Do you sometimes feel a bit lost, or that some part of you is stuck in another plane of existence? Do you sometimes dream of being lost and can't find your way back home? Have you had a traumatic experience, when after it was over, you never quite felt the same afterward?

You may benefit from a soul retrieval! Although I prefer to do them in person, I also offer soul retrievals over the phone if you are not in my area. There are many wonderful healers who also offer this amazing healing experience. Find the healer that rings true to your soul, and go looking for those lost pieces of your self. We are meant to be whole, happy, and present in our bodies and in our life on this earth plane,

I do not claim to be an astrologist, but I do keep up with the phases of the moon and certain events in the skies that seem to have an effect on my life and the life of those around me.

So this morning on the east coast, a little after midnight, we experienced a new moon in Taurus.

Taurus is an earth sign, and has to do with self worth, personal values, and things that are related to our life in the earth realm.

Depending on whose blogs you read, new moons can be about manifesting new things or letting go of old stuff.

Here is my understanding.

The dark moon and the new moon are a bit different, although they are sometimes used interchangeably.

The dark moon is when there is NO moon, It is dark.

The new moon is right after that. When the darkness of the moon begins to pass and the next phase begins its trek across our sky and our experience.

Symbolically you may correctly ascertain that the best time for releasing things out of your life is when the moon is waning and going into the dark stage and the best time for manifesting would be when the moon begins to become visible again!

This particular new moon is accompanied by a Mercury Retrograde which lasts approximately three weeks. Mercury is all about communication, Traditionally Mercury Retrogrades affects anything having to with our communications with others. Since in modern times we often communicate via the internet, phones, and other electronic devices, be sure that these items may not always function the way they should during Mercury Retrogrades.

However, Mercury Retrogrades are not necessarily a bad thing,  We get to revisit our communications with others, We get to bring closure to outstanding issues in our lives. We get to take some time out and look at our recent past and see if there are some things we have been avoiding. With the new moon in Taurus, this is a perfect time for revisiting our relationships with others, our relationship with our money, our values, and things that are important to us. If there is an imbalance, now is the perfect time to set things right.

This past week my body indicated to me that there was an imbalance. I found it necessary to experience an emergency appendectomy. Up until that day, I will admit that I had allowed my life to become a bit imbalanced. I was charging forward like Taurus the bull, accepting every invite, every opportunity that presented itself. Working full time again at the Post Office, doing weddings and readings and classes on weekends and sometimes after a full day at the Post Office, I was headed toward a screeching halt.

This week is my week to recharge. To decide which opportunities to take, and which ones to release. What a perfect week to do this!

I am planning a double whammy ritual this evening. The actual dark moon has passed, and the new moon is now upon us. However, I have a two fold agenda. I am making two lists. One list contains the things I am ready to release, and the other list contains the things I am ready to invite or manifest into my life.

May I suggest you do something similar in your time with Spirit as well.

I like to incorporate the particular element that is related to the moon when doing my rituals. In this case Taurus is an earth sign, so I will bring the earth into my ritual. I will take my two pieces of paper containing my intentions. The one that  contains the things I am releasing, I will stand outside (weather permitting) and say something like this:

Higher Beings of Love and Light, Universe, Higher Self and My Own Soul, I thank you for the experiences of life that have brought me to this moment, I thank all of the things that I am now releasing for the lessons you have taught me and the value you have had in my life up until this point. I am now ready to release you to the earth and out of my life.

I will then dig a hole in the earth, asking the Earth for permission first of course and asking where in the Earth to dig the hole. I will tear up the paper into tiny pieces and bury the pieces into the earth, thanking the Earth for accepting the energy of those things to the betterment of my soul.

Now to the second part of my ritual. I will take my second list of things I want to manifest into my life. I will say a similar incantation, or prayer, something like this:

Higher Beings of Love and Light, Universe, Higher Self and My Own Soul: I now humbly ask your help in manifesting these things into my life. As I team up with you I thank you for your partnership with me in bringing into my life my intentions. 

Now is the fun part! Being spring and time to plant new things in your yard or whatever space you have available, find a pot of dirt and a plant that you would like to grow. You can tear up your piece of paper into little pieces and place it in the bottom of the pot. Fill the pot with dirt and the plant and water it. Thank the plant and the dirt for its partnership with you as you manifest your intentions!

If you do not possess a green thumb or the ability to grow a plant, for whatever reason,you can do your ritual in whatever way speaks to you. Place your paper under a rock. Rocks are very powerful earth elements. Go to the mountains somewhere and plant your intentions. Use the element of earth. Even if you burn the paper and then spread the ashes into the earth somewhere that is still using the element of earth in your ritual. Have fun! Use your favorite spiritual tools. Remember to make your ritual speak to your soul.

The earth, the stars and the planets, whether you believe that they have real power over your life or not, are there to remind you of the things of the Spirit. Nothing really has any meaning unless it has meaning to YOU. Rituals are for your benefit. They bring your thoughts and words and actions together for a specific purpose.

Have fun and relax! Remember that life is on your side! These tools that I suggest are for your benefit and are meant to bring joy into your life in a greater way! Whatever means you find to bring joy into your life is good!

If you would like some personal attention, I am always available for phone, Skype or email consultations. If you live near me, I am available at specific dates and times listed on my WEBSITE.

Blessings to you on this special day!

Messages from the Angels

A couple of years ago, some of my friends and I participated in a ritual where we invited a particular group of highly evolved Angels into our home for a period of five days, and then sent them on to one another in kind of like a chain letter for Angels. In the past couple of months, I had felt impressed to repeat the ritual. I had a particular person in mind who I wanted to send the Angels to, but I had not heard from him, an internet friend, in over a year. Lo and behold, a few days after I thought of sending him the Angels, he emailed me and asked me if he could now participate in the ritual.

I believe that Angels do not live in time and space like we do, and since I had sent him the Angels two years ago, but he had  not completed the ritual, I saw no reason why he could not go ahead and do the ritual now. He did and had an amazing experience.

I decided to repeat the ritual myself, and my husband agreed to participate.

As is common in the ritual, I felt the Angels a couple of days before the ritual was scheduled to begin. Once again, I do not believe Angels live in time and space, so having them come and go at particular days and times is for us, not for them.

I easily found three people who were excited to receive the Angels after my ritual was done.

One of my requests of the Angels was advice on how to juggle my three "careers": the Post Office, a wedding officiant, and giving and teaching Spiritual messages and principles. Of course my career of choice is the third, but to pay the bills I needed the other two.

Yesterday as I sat in my car on my lunch break at the Post Office, Spirit gave me what I believe is to be the first steps to that and one of my other requests.

One of them is to once again begin to blog regularly.

When I first starting posting messages from Spirit, I did it because I was receiving messages and the only way I knew to share them was to create a blog. It went really well for several years. A couple of years into the blog, I compiled some of my favorite messages from the blog and from Spirit and published them in what was to be my first book.

At that time I was working full time at the Post Office, and the messages were my way of reopening the door to communicating with Spirit which I had closed many years before. You can read my story HERE.

As time went on, I began to get some clients and I wanted to have more time to spend giving messages and doing spiritual work. I took a part time position at the Post Office and supplemented my income doing wedding ceremonies, delivering messages from Spirit and teaching spiritual classes.

Toward the end of last year, I was exhausted. I decided to go back to work full time at the Post Office and take a break from my "other" stuff.

Spirit had other plans.

My message for today is:

1: if you ask for help They will answer

2: all you really have to do is set an intention to connect or to receive guidance and They will come

3: "They" are really connected with that inner voice inside of you.

4: We are all one

I believe the reason the Angels come as soon as you set the intention to invite them in and they don't necessarily wait until the time you open the door and let them in is because "They" are really already with you as soon as you think it in your mind. I believe in the other realms every thought is a prayer and as soon as you ask for help or guidance or a visitation your prayer is heard and answered. The only thing that keeps us from experiencing "Them" is our own lack of belief and the barriers we build around ourselves.

We are all connected. You and I are connected as you read this and I am sitting outside of time and space writing it. Yes, I am currently in time and space and my hands are clicking away on the keys but when you read it I will actually be doing something else, thinking about something else. But you will read this and outside of time and space, you and I will connect. It is the same with the Angels, higher level "Help" or whatever you want to call that Higher Power that you call on when in your physical existence on this plane you need some assistance. When you think a thought of "I could use some assistance", immediately your thought is transmitted through time and space and help is sent out to you. So you and the "Help" are one.

Whenever you feel disconnected or worry that there is no "Help" available or that your prayers or thoughts are hitting the ceiling and bouncing right back down to you, don't despair. "Help" is on the way. It is immediate. It is as easy as you let it be.

Just believe it.

Expect a miracle.

Invite the Angels and They will come.

If you would like to receive the Angels into your home, and would like to participate in the ritual, I would love to send it to you. I did not make it up  myself. Yes it was one of those chain letters that probably came into your inbox at some point and you deleted it. But I decided to do it.

And the Angels came.

The Red Shoes

I don't know what it is about me and red shoes.

Somehow, they symbolize to me a sense of personal power. Of standing out in the crowd. Of not being afraid to be who you are. Of freedom.

When I was young I was that shy little girl standing off by herself in the corner, afraid to be seen, afraid to speak her truth, afraid of being different from everyone else, even though, in my heart, I already knew I was different. I did everything I could to fit in, to be just like everyone else. Except it didn't work.

I was like the ugly duckling in that old children's story. I was a baby swan living among ducks.

Not that there is anything wrong with being a duck.

I wanted to be a duck. I longed to be a duck.

As time went on, I grew more and more different from the crowd. I think at some point I realized that if I was going to be different, I might as well be really different.

From trying to fit in to determined to stand out, I began to challenge those around me to begin to think for themselves. I questioned all the established rules and regulations of the belief system that I had identified with for my entire life. It did not go over well.

My story can be found HERE.

Last night my hubby and I were watching a documentary on the evolution of thought revolving around the cure of cancer. I learned that the technology and the revelation of the leading scientists that are now right on the edge of a major breakthrough in the cure for cancer actually had been suggested by scientists way back at the beginning of the century but they did not have the technology or the knowledge of how to put into action their original findings into a workable antidote.

Sometimes those of us who choose to think outside of the box are only the forerunners for those who eventually share the revelations to the world.

My point?

Do you have something inside of you that is churning, burning inside of you that you are sure will change the world? Does it seem to be at odds with the collective thinking of the day? You are not alone! Many of  us have been in the position of being the person who is caught wearing red shoes in a sea of loafers!

Don't be afraid to stand out! Don't be afraid to throw caution to the wind, to stand up and reveal your true self to the world!

It may not go over well at first.

The original scientists who came up with ideas concerning a cure for cancer never got the recognition in their lifetime for the ideas that they presented.

Here's another suggestion... what if you are wrong?

I have struggled with this one myself...

This has been my conclusion..

So what!

Bottom line is, if you feel JOY, if you are not harming another living thing,  then Get out there and do and say and be what gives your heart JOY!

Let me warn you that others may or  may not share the joy you are feeling! Allow them the right to feel or not feel joy, as long as you are not harming them in any way, or taking away their right to choose their own path.

I have learned that our souls give us this sure fire way to know if something is right for us or not. When we decide to go ahead and do or think or say something that is right in line with our soul's purpose, we get this amazing feeling of JOY.

Just for today, think about what would give your heart JOY. Throw caution to the wind and PUT ON THOSE RED SHOES! 

I am embarking upon an adventure and I have decided to take my red high heel shoes with me. I am going to take some photos of those red shoes with things that have brought me joy.. whether it be sitting at the beach, watching a sunset, or riding with my feet hanging out the window blowing in the breeze!

My goal is to really really experience JOY. Whether I am doing something profound or just mundane. I choose to experience JOY in my life.

What about you? What would change in your life if your goal was to EXPERIENCE JOY?

The challenge is on.


PS...I found this image of the red shoes HERE. I am hoping all future pics of red shoes will be my own, but if I find one that I just can't NOT share, I will give proper credit..

Becoming Your Own Hero!

What do you think of when you look at this photo?

Do you think, wow that takes a lot of practice, determination, and stamina to accomplish such a feat! You go girl!

Or, do you think, this photo is exploiting to women. Pole dancing is demeaning to women and contributes to low self esteem in women who do not look like this?

How dare she post a photo like this in a spiritual blog!

Was your first response to the photo positive or negative?

If it was positive, YAY YOU!!!

Today's post is all about letting go of judgement.

Sometimes we are so accustomed to passing judgement we don't even realize we are doing it. We see a photo or hear a song on the radio or see something on television that elicits a specific emotional response.

That emotional response is a clue to us on an area of our subconscious we need to work on. Anytime we feel a negative emotional response based on something we see, hear, feel, smell, or taste, there is a clue that we have an unresolved issue that was just triggered by that emotional response.

For example, if seeing a woman pole dancing brings up within us the thought that this woman is being sexually exploited, we are saying that there is something wrong with the act of sex, or a particular aspect of the act of sex. We are assuming the woman is not enjoying what she is doing. We are projecting our feelings onto someone else.

If, however, we can look at this photo and say... that's impressive.. or.... if I tried, I could do that, then we are looking at the photo without judgement. Truth be told, there is no real sexual implication in this photo whatsoever. 

What if we said, oh that makes people who are large feel bad about themselves.. it implies that everyone has to be thin to be acceptable.. 

Another judgement.

We are assuming that large people feel bad about themselves. We are perhaps internalizing something we feel about ourselves.

One way to get to the core issue is to ask ourselves why the emotional response was triggered in the first place.

For example, if we thought to ourselves, this is not a spiritual photo, how dare she post this on a spiritual blog?


Perhaps we think that there are specific rules about what is and is not acceptable.


Because showing a woman half clad upside down on a pole is not acceptable or spiritual.


Because if I tried to do this and present myself as a spiritual person I would not be accepted.


Because I allow certain rules of society to dictate to me what is and isn't spiritual.


Because I am afraid of being rejected.


Because I am afraid of not being loved.

If we reduce all of our judgements down to the core issue, almost every time we can reduce it to a fear of some kind, and especially, the fear of not being loved.

What if we circumvented the whole process and just decided that no matter what, we would decide to love ourselves and do what gives us joy?

How freeing that would be!

The next time you are tempted to judge, think about this.  WHY? Why do you feel this particular emotional response? Does it go back to something you were taught, something you experienced, something you were led to believe?

What about judging ourselves?

We do this every day.. I am not good enough. I am not smart enough, pretty enough, talented enough, young enough, old enough, thin enough,  I am not enough.

If this photo elicited a response that oh, I am not ..... enough, decide today to change that thought.

You are enough. You are completely loved. There is nothing to fear.

If we cease from judging, we become our own heros. We begin to create a utopia right here in our own skin.

Whether or not we can hang upside down on a pole half clad will not matter. We will honor the right for this girl to do it and feel wonderful about herself, to feel sexy, to feel accomplished, to feel joy. And we will feel joy about feeling good about ourselves no matter whether we can do a similar activity or not.

This is your assignment.

The next time you are tempted to judge someone or something, ask yourself why?

Get down to that core issue.

Let it go. Allow whatever sparked your judgement to go and just allow it to be.

Know you are loved. You are accepted.

You are your own hero.
