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!

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.

Just Breathe and Believe!

Every single one of us is worthy of the good stuff. We just have to believe in ourselves. Every day is a new day and chance to stand in our own energy and know our individual merit. 

img_9830

Consider this… We are giant magnets! Every thought we think, every word we say, and every feeling we have is projected out and magnetized back. Magnetize the good stuff by beginning your day in the light.

Try this in the morning! 

Feel like exercising that sixth-sense of yours this morning? You know what I’m referring to, your intuition! The perceptive, gut-aware, person that you are is ready to allow more of the good stuff in.  

Start the day by filling yourself with appreciation and you will light up every room.  That light will boost your intuition and help you magnetize that which you most desire.

image-1 (18)

In the length of time it takes to brush your teeth, (two minutes) you can infuse yourself with light. So as you brush your teeth each morning, think in terms of admiration, appreciation, gratitude, endearment, affection and light.

That two minutes sets the stage for your entire day. Isn’t your day worth it?

As you rinse your toothbrush, find and feel a memory of something memory- worthy. As you add toothpaste allow the recollection to flood your senses. As you brush your teeth admire, appreciate and love up the feeling of feeling good

Alternatively sink into one of these to start your day off in the light!

Getting into the Holiday “Spirit”!

Adventure called life

The Holiday season is upon us. Yours may be loaded with family and friends, travel and gifts, food and love. Be sure to fill yourself up with the warmth of each moment and appreciate the feeling. It will bring more of the same.

divinely kissed

There are those for whom the holiday season is filled with memories of times and people gone from sight. For some, celebratory invitations may be a thing of the past. Please consider extending a smile, handshake, hug or even an invite to neighbors, distant relatives or friends.Cin

That-tickle-on-your-nose

We are influenced by our neighbor’s joys and sorrows because we are linked soul to soul. In the same way that we are all psychic, we are all empathic, meaning we are all able to feel the emotions of others.  So all the more reason to love our neighbors while exercising good personal boundaries.

Raquel Sophia and me

We live in captivating and transformative times. There’s what feels like an electric current running through us because so much is happening globally. On a soul level, we have outgrown old limited beliefs and are ready for a healthy shift.

An enlightened approach would be to cultivate balance both during the holiday season and these transformative times.

Set the stage. Breathe yourself into your higher-knowing-self.

The Heart Always Forgives

 

Love is food for the soul

When we lose a love in any way, for any reason, we may feel regret and reach for solace and/or forgiveness. 

When we have been betrayed, we implore our Higher Power, please help my heart to forgive.

But the heart always forgives; it’s the mind that becomes immobile. So trust your heart, engage your intuition and employ your mind though only when it’s steady.

When there’s a party going on in your head, but no one is in charge, engage your intuition by radiating love.

pablo (41) In that moment, let your mantra be….

My thoughts are no longer running away with me,

my intuition is ignited and I now radiate love!

Use your intuition as an anchor. Go in the direction of what is sound and feels good. 

May you find peace through intuition, love, and balance.
