The Cosmos are adding Illumination to the 2020 Celebration!

IMG_9519

A new year and a new decade is upon us and oh how the cosmos are adding illumination to the celebration! 

It is time to say goodbye to what was and hello to what is! 

I’ve long been intrigued by the effects of everything moon, planet and star related. As a medium I’m highly aware of the energy created by astrological shifts.

Though I’m not an astrologer, I am astute at reading energy and oh boy is there a lot of great current reading material compliments of the cosmos!

Think Eclipses. Think December 25th until January 10th.

Eclipses offer a progressive shift in perspective, but they also help us get back on track with our life plan. 

This is more than a New Years resolution, this is about making good for your soul! 

This means we will have some energetic assistance with meeting our goals and from more than one source. 

Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun and the Lord of Karma. Saturn also casts light on our shadows. 

saturn - Google Search

Saturn it is said, is the inventor of social order. This planet brings meaning into our lives and helps us meet our life goals.

Saturn is made up of 94% hydrogen, 6% helium and small amounts of methane and ammonia. Most stars are made of hydrogen and helium. 

Saturn is the star of Astrology in 2020!

Saturn recently moved from Sagittarius to Capricorn and apparently Capricorn is a pretty big deal right now but for me, Saturn stands out. 

 

Saturn is a task-master so this get-it-done vibe can help us stand up and face what is. We can choose to be intimidated by Saturn’s weighty energy or we can inhale the power and make it our own.

The stuff we stuff tends to get the best of us so it’s wise to un-stuff by facing our fears. 

We all have dreams. We tend to get in our own way in making them come true because we don’t want to face some big something. But once we do, watch out! 

If something makes your heart sing, it is singing for a reason. Allow your intuition to guide you and believe in yourself and your dreams.

You yourself added them to your life plan for a reason. Be reasonable and go for it!  

Be sure to tell yourself a story about how amazing you are. And then be that freely and purely. 

Allow the ones you love and the cosmos to help you bring forward what you love and most desire. 

Stay focused and unashamed. The good stuff can take time to grow. Be your full self, don’t judge and keep moving forward. Your soul will lead you, just stay in your own light and you are on your way!

How to Re-Juice Even When Life Events Put The Squeeze On You

 

Stacy I will miss you forever

I could use a motion sickness pill as a result of all the wild ups and downs of the past seven days!

Have the past days felt big to you as well?

I was looking forward to the week of December 2nd, especially to being on Twin Cities Live and shining my intuitive light on TV!

The week started with my youngest coming down with a flu bug that really brought her down. 

My Intuitive Coach clients on Monday and Tuesday were especially amazing and that lifted me up. 

And then in a blur…There was the relief and delight of a planned surgery going well…and then a health scare for me, and next two very dear friends became dangerously ill … One of them didn’t make it.

My friend Stacy had a body that was frail but man she was made of steel.

My family loved her dearly and always considered her to be part of ours. She was a beautiful, fun loving, exuberant woman with a heart of pure honey.

Friendships don’t end with death because love never dies. I could talk about, and blog about her amazing spirit for days but that is not what this post is about. 

stacy fill your life

It is about remembering how to re-juice even when life events put the squeeze on us.

It’s about knowing that we are enough. And tuning in and feeling our light so we can step up to the proverbial plate, and do what it is we came here to do.

In this space we see that our passion for whatever it is we are doing is proof that at the plate we stand. 

Stacy post 2

My biggest passion resides in being a mom.

I love being part of my children’s lives and for our family, that has always included -no matter the weather- sitting in the stands watching them throw, catch, kick or hit a ball. Or as was the case this past Saturday, watching our daughter glide gracefully across the floor in dance.

Having just learned of our friend’s death, we left the meet immediately after her team performed so I could curl up on my living room sofa and cry.  

I needed the comfort of my home. 

The medium in me waited patiently and quietly as I mourned.

car wash quote

My son Aaron was home recovering from shoulder surgery and when he heard me say, “I hope she wasn’t scared.” He said “Mom, anyone who knows you and has heard you talk about the other side wouldn’t be scared .”

Something in his words struck a chord and the medium in me stepped back in. 

Stacy my friend I will miss you forever. I recall now that I have only to remember how you touched my heart to find you.

Stacy post

What TO DO When You Feel Blue

-Know that it is all right to feel the way you feel

-Know that it is also all right to improve the way you feel by changing your thoughts

-Find a memory or a photo that brings you joy

-Close your eyes and say your full name to yourself

-Drop your shoulders so they no longer feel like earrings

-Inhale for a count of seven…exhale for a count of seven, seven times 

-Feel the memory 

-Inhale the joy

-Exhale exhale exhale 

-Inhale, exhale and release

-Breathe some light into your heart

-Allow the love in the moment to come alive within you 

-Know that the way you feel about the memory will be with you always

-The love in a moment lives forever

-Inhale, Exhale, and Release. Know that you are enough!

GRACE

Live what you love and what you love will fill your life!

The Holidays are Upon Us, Find the Magic in the Lights!

The Holidays are upon us and it’s time to celebrate! We celebrate new life, family members and friends…It’s a multi-layered experience because as adults, we remember once celebrating the Holidays with those that are no longer with us.

Our loved-ones-in-spirit continue to send us love and are part of our celebrations. Take a moment to send love and appreciation to them, they can feel it!

Your intuition can partner with you during the Holidays to help you get the most out of the season!

Set your intent for the Holidays now!

Choose for example to be filled with appreciation, joy, and peace. Or choose to trust your gut instead of your guilt when responding to requests for your company.

Follow your usual routine as much as possible. Be good to your body by providing enough sleep, vitamin D, healthy food, exercise and exchanged hugs.

Find the magic in your own life…create your own fabulous Holiday rituals.

Donate your time, your money and/or a smile this Holiday season.

If possible, make sure to be around people and celebrate the light of the season.

Know how you feel before you arrive at a party or family function. If you suddenly feel off center, breathe, inhale the beauty exhale the past. Then…Say your name to yourself, wiggle your toes, touch the top of your head and smile…even if you have to fake it. The physical act of smiling will lift your spirit.

Self-acceptance is self-love in action so be nice to you.

Remember…We don’t have to meet people where they are, we just have to love them where they are to find any sort of peace.

November 24 2019 blog

Choose a few affirmative words to say to  yourself when you feel tired, overloaded, or anxious such as…

-My energy is ignited, my thoughts fill me with light, and the light fills me with joy.

-Every second of my life is divinely kissed!

-I’m always on my path and am filled with light.

-I am here. I am whole. I am now.

-I am a loved child of the Universe and when I walk I know I never walk alone.

-I am love and light in action!

Be your own superhero. Stand up, Speak up, Light up!

Balance is a moving target. Allow your intuition to provide guidance! Offer yourself time to be silent and still. This will help move you into a space where you can be more peaceful and insightful.

It’s ok to miss what we could have had in our relationships with those we love as long as it doesn’t blind us to what we do have.

Being kind takes more heart than effort.

Neither your face your body, nor your age determines your beauty. Your heart does.

Live what you love and what you love will fill your life!

I got into a fight with…………. Mercury Retrograde!

Despite my best efforts, I got into a fight with Mercury Retrograde!

It was early last week…

I had been minding my own business, coaching some fabulous clients, (they are all pretty fabulous BTW) meditating, surveying my own boundaries when out of the blue, I felt like crying. As a medium and highly empathic person, I recognize when I’m sensing and/or taking on someone’s feelings. I tightened my boundaries and again felt a waive of such sadness I wanted to cry. This was mine and it was weird. 

I felt saturated by heartache and feelings of overwhelm. They seemed to come out of thin air. Days before things in my life were flowing along with ease. 

But then I recalled…

Mercury went Retrograde October 31st and will stay there until November 20th.

Mad…I was really mad at Mercury for this awful retrograde. I had done so much to ground myself in preparation! The little shit planet, I thought to myself, really packs a punch when in retrograde! Something inside of me wanted to punch back. 

So I sat with my tears and listened to what they had to say. No judging, just listening and sort of swaying back and forth. And just like that my knowing-soul-self started to send symbols my way. You know, that calm, comforting, higher-knowing-soul-self we all have…I sparked it with some self-care

Soul Care

The symbols and pictures were all of me loving up my family including those who were in spirit, walking my dog, checking on relatives and friends who were in need of a boost and of course, of me at work. Not one was of me taking care of me. 

I found some lavender and salt, tossed them into the tub and took a warm bath in the middle of the day. Afterward I silently sat in front of a fire and listened to myself breathe.

Following what seemed like a few minutes but was really over an hour I did tons of Sun Salutations (yoga) drank a giant glass of cool, clean water and contentedly glanced around the room. 

Root and Flight YES

I  looked at the view from my back windows, and the pillows on my living room sofa and began feeling such deep appreciation for everything in my life… I wanted to cry…but this time in a good way.

Next I got rid of some shoes that no longer worked for me, emptied my fridge of anything that looked like a science project, cleared out some old files on my computer, left messages for a few sweet friends I had not connected with lately and made a healthy dinner for me and mine. 

Mercury-Retrograde

Who are you Mercury?

Mercury is the smallest planet in our solar system and is all about Language—both  verbal AND written. Transporting of messages and just simply transporting is this planets sphere. Let us not forget electronic communication such as cell phones, computers etc.. they are shall we say, touched by Mercury Retrograde. 

It’s about COMMUNICATION! And while Mercury is in Retrograde, all things communication can tend to go WONKY!

Also, at this time the veil between worlds thins. A space between the material/physical and the mysterious opens up. My yearning for connection with loved ones in spirit was prompted by this thinning. 

Part of what had set me off was me missing my dad, aunt and grandparents. I know I find their love within me when I am loving; so this retrograde gave me a tremendous gift because it reminded me of that.

Can you relate to my experience? 

Insights at times like these come in louder and stronger and moods run hotter so the best thing to do during Mercury Retrograde is DO WHATEVER CALMS and SOOTHES.

do whatever calms and soothes

Mercury Retrogrades, I shall say again, can make us feel a little wonky. It’s okay though, because it’s a great time to un-stuff our stuff and sublimely grow our intuition.

Here are some potent ways to advance your intuition!

Un-stuff your stuff!

Unstuff

Boundaries in a Bottle!

 

Let it go and let it grow YES

Autumn, full moons, Aries, Uranus, Pluto & Jupiter! Shadow work, boundary work, inner work. There’s a lot going on in the cosmos and there’s a lot going on within You!

When you have tons of fun or not-so-fun-stuff going on, who do you call? I love and trust my husband and dear friends but when it comes to feeling over-stuffed I call my best friend.

My best friend is my intuition.

My intuition told me to breathe myself into my higher-knowing-soul-self and so I did!

Be inspired

Here’s how!

I was lead to do some inner-eye housecleaning…Meaning to clean up and tighten up my boundaries.

This is always a good idea…it strengthens intuitive signals and makes the language of my intuition sing.

Breathe!

Stand or sit with spine straight and legs and arms uncrossed. Gently close your eyes and listen to the sound of your breath as you slowly inhale and exhale nine times through your nose. Feel the rise of your belly as you take in another breath and relax into yourself as you exhale. As you inhale a ninth time envision a golden-white light moving up from the core of the earth through your feet and out from the top of your head. The golden-white light then encircles your body three times and floats back down to the core of the earth.

One of my favorite boundary fixes is Boundaries in a Bottle from my second book, The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition

Boundaries in a Bottle

Who—Anyone who could use a quick boundary fix

What—Expeditiously clear the energy in and around you

When—When you wish to clear your mind or you feel like your boundaries are askew

Where—Any private or semi-private space

Next…

*Fill a small clean glass spray bottle with purified water. Add several drops of sage essential oil or salt (either sea salt or kosher salt).

*Imagine that you are surrounded by a white light.

*Stand in the middle of the room and spray the air above your head three times.

*Close your eyes and touch the tip of your middle finger to the top of your thumb. This is known as the Akash mudra, which helps activate positive thought and strengthens the intuitive voice. Keep your other fingers straight but relaxed.

*Say, “The brilliant light of my soul shines and I feel imbued with confidence, peace, and courage. I am filled with appreciation and am radiant with white light.”

You have now bounced yourself back into your intuitive-happy self! In my experience, using this grounding techniques is a beautiful way to start your day—or clear your energy and protect your body, mind, and spirit. Once you learn how to ground yourself the good will freely flow through you and anything else will fall away!

Cut the Crap and Cut the Cord!

If a noun is a person, place or thing, I’m a NOUN PSYCHIC! I read energy including the energy of buildings, businesses, people, animals, and spirits.

When I’m doing a personal reading I interact with the energy floating in and around my client. This includes their guides, history, probabilities, and of course their nearby loved-ones-in-spirit.

I’m also able to see the congested energy of things gone by and how it affects them.

This includes the stuff of past relationships. 

If the relationship was one of soul, I refer to it as a soul connection.

SOUL CONNECTIONS

A soul connection is unbreakable and is made of light. No matter what the relationship, the core is one of love.

We typically have this type of connection with our parents, siblings, close friends and those with whom we are romantically linked. It’s one that is created through the heart and is of the soul.

Think back to a time when you met someone with whom you felt an immediate connection!  Your soul recognized theirs!

These are beautiful and meaningful relationships. See the gifts they bring and feel your spirit soar.

There are also connections through cords and they are created through negative emotions.

Relationships formed through soul connections can also be infected with cords.

 

CORD CONNECTIONS

A cord connection is created through dealings filled with negative emotions such as envy, jealousy, rage, lust, and the like.

They form as mentioned, during unfavorable exchanges, energetically speaking. For example…they can occur during power struggles, frustrating traffic jams, during disappointing and infuriating situations in clubs, stores or restaurants and of course in competitive relationships.

Examples

Is an argument long past haunting you? Does it seem to follow you? You could be energetically attached to the person with whom you fought. Or if you have felt resolved and peaceful about it but feel drained when you think of this person, there could be a cord involved.

Find yourself in the middle of a meeting when the energy of another person (not anywhere near) suddenly pours into your space?

Are you obsessively thinking of someone? Are the thoughts draining?

Cords are simply an energetic (ethereal or etheric) attachment and can actually occur within any relationship where negative emotions prevail on a consistent basis. They often dissolve on their own but we can benefit by helping the process along. 

The good news is, these ethereal cords can be cut! 

I frequently help clients identify and cut the cords that bind in a negative way. You can do this for yourself!

CUTTING CORDS…here’s what you need to know 

Being corded to someone in this way is not unusual but it is also not a good thing. A SOUL connection is a good thing! Add abusive, obsessive, blaming, or any other negative energy to it on a regular basis and the story changes.

This is the stuff cords are made of!

To cut a cord IS A GOOD THING! We are not breaking a soul bond when we do this! Anything that is positive remains even after we cut a cord. But the negative exchange ends energetically speaking. It can reattach if we don’t change our own thinking and responses. Forgive my language but…We have to allow ourselves to cut the crap, meaning the thinking that weighs us down! 

SO if YOU are blaming, dumping, shaming and pumping the old GUILT lever, cutting the cord is an exhilarating thing to do!

It can bring a sense of peace, recharge your energy, and clear the way for more positive experiences.

We can do this several times if necessary but once our thinking changes, the cord will not have anything to attach itself to because the negative connection is broken.

So break negative and draining energetic attachments…Let’s cut the cord!

CORD CUTTING MADE EASY!

-Find a safe, quiet and lovely space.

-Imagine yourself as being filled with white light. It pours in through the heavens and up through the earth. Inhale and exhale slowly several times through your nose and imagine this iridescent white light beaming through you, protecting you and connecting you with your higher-knowing-self.

-Feel the light fill your body, mind and spirit.

-Now imagine a HUGE scissors floating in the air. You can move it with your mind and you intuitively know it can do no harm.

-Now call to your memory a person with whom you feel negatively corded. Fill them with white light and know that this cord cutting is for the good of all.

-Ask for forgiveness for anything you may have done to wound them.

-Fill your thoughts with light and forgive them.

-Imagine the cord floating from you to this person. The cord is filled with an unattractive color.

-Imagine opening the scissors wide and moving it to the middle of the cord. Hear it slice the cord in two. It doesn’t hurt either party and in fact, allows you both to beam white light back into yourselves and seal the place of attachment.

-Bless this exchange and see the scissors vanish.

-Breath into your belly, inhale and exhale slowly through your nose.

-Fill yourself with appreciation and light.

-Feel your energy build and the love in your heart beam.

-NOW open your eyes!

-Congratulations!

Here’s the Scoop about the Turkey on my Stoop!

IMG_0236

Do you like animals? They bring me such a tremendous sense of calm. During times of meaningful change, animals have appeared to me as signs from the Universe. Though the messenger may be small, the message seldom is!

Take this past Friday for instance!

Everything happens for a reason so when my neighbor sent me a text with a photo of a turkey sitting outside my front door, I knew the Universe was at work again. I had grown accustomed to receiving messages from the deer in my backyard, the dragonflies by my pool and the frogs on my windows but a turkey, to the best of my knowledge had never come calling.

IMG_0254

My week had been long and though I had been feeling a tad pushed around by my own career aspirations, it was ending on a high note.

The turkey was waiting for me when I arrived home over an hour later. Feeling a sense of adventure I entered my home through the back and tiptoed up to my front door, careful not to make noise. The turkey moved off my front step but immediately came back. When she turned her head and looked me in the eye, I felt nothing but peace.

Now and then she walked around a snowy patch on my sidewalk but always returned to stand by my front door. I looked for other turkeys but saw none. I put my five bags of groceries away (purchased in preparation for an upcoming snowstorm) and checked out what Google had to say about the spiritual meaning behind seeing a turkey. 

“Common Turkey Spirit Animal Meanings. Similar to the Jellyfish, the turkey spirit animal is a symbol of abundance. It is an encouragement to celebrate your resources that nourish your physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. … The meaning of the turkey also speaks about feminine energies that are at work in your life. Feb 21, 2017″ Google search 3-8-19

And this! “American Indians viewed all things – whether seen or touched – living or inanimate – as possessors of a spirit. Everything is saturated with sacred energy. All things deserve respect and honor.” Avia Venefica

When we begin to see animals as spiritual teachers and message couriers, it opens us up to a whole new world of insight.

pablo - 2019-03-09T140115.308

Since I couldn’t find my copy of “Animal Speak” by Ted Andrews I headed back to the internet for more info.

I found that the turkey symbolizes such things as: the spirit of giving, sharing blessings with the community, abundance, harvesting the fruits of our labor, contentment and connecting with and honoring nature.

According to Marley Jamason, “You can cross paths with Animal Medicine messengers in the physical realm (AKA “real life”), in a dream, in a meditation, through thought, intuition, or via a video or image — it doesn’t matter how you encounter your spiritual messenger (though meeting with an animal messenger in person is always thrilling!)” Google search 3-8-19

I grinned then laughed! The night before I had stood in front of a sold-out audience of people waiting to hear what I had to say about intuition, spirits and spooks. The event was a tremendous success and I still felt the natural buzz I get from helping people understand the language of intuition and their connection with those-in-spirit.

I consider peace abundance and overall, have been feeling it deeply and more often than ever before. In the past few months I’ve been quoted in a few national publications and have made great strides in other areas of my writing career as well. I knew intuitively that my ignited energy was taking me somewhere good. 

Image-1 (28)

I’ve always loved and respected animals and considered them to be my friends. They are wonderful confidants and couriers of messages. As the meaning of the visit from my new turkey friend set in, I felt hugged from the inside out. 

A few minutes later, I walked from the kitchen to my front door and wasn’t at all surprised to see that the turkey had flown the coop. Her message delivered, she went on her way. 

Animal messages are the best and so are you. Thank you for reading my blog.
