Hello There Mercury Retrograde, I See You Are Back!

This is the first Mercury Retrograde of 2020!

Be inspired

This Mercury retrograde is in creative compassionate Pisces and goes from February 17th-March 10th. 

Screenshot 2020-02-16 at 10.55.29 PMRetrogrades happen a few times per year, when the planet Mercury slows down and appears to stop and move backward but it’s an optical illusion..there is movement forward.

We can look forward to two more Mercury Retrogrades this year. June 18th – July 12th and October 14th – November 3rd.

This rocky little planet is one of communication as in speaking, reading, listening, and negotiating. It’s also the planet of code, meaning computer code. So when this planet retrogrades, these areas (and more) often get chaotic and/or spin out of control. It’s wise to double and triple check documents before signing or if possible wait until the effects of the retrograde subside.

The message from mercury retrograde is slow down and deal with what is deep down. The stuff we stuff tends to come up when Mercury Retrogrades. This Pisces flavored Retrograde may reveal emotional patterns that could use a hug. 

Mercury and your gifts

And it just may help us clear the way so we can see why we came here in the first place! We all have something uniquely special to share. Sometimes we are afraid to reveal it because we are fearful of what other people will think.

Mercury Retrogrades help us clear our ‘stuff’ which helps us find our groove!

I’m using what could likely feel like Planetary PMS to help me move through my fear! It’s all about leaning into my soul and feeling my feelings.

And I’m spending tons of time with one of my best friends, my intuition!

Insights are so much louder when we allow our feelings to breathe! 

insights yesA few of my favorite things to do when Mercury is in Retrograde is…Clean my fridge, recycle magazines, and clean out drawers and under my bed. And…go for walks with my dog, take long baths and take a break from old-worn-out-thinking! 

Be sure to let your soul-light shine and know that the Universe has your back!

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!

Autumn Equinox…When Day and Night bow as Equals

Last eve of summer 2019

Today, September 23rd, 2019 we welcome the Autumn Equinox. 

When day and night bow as equals and sun and earth appear to stand in geometrical harmony, the Northern hemisphere and Southern hemisphere trade places.

There is deep significance to these astrological changes. What is without is within. It’s also a celestial voyage. Meaning what is happening on the outside is also happening on the inside.

Autumn is a time when the leaves turn the colors of sunset and they put on their best and last performance. They bow and sway and eventually they fall.

This marks the end of a cycle.  Autumn is a time to gather, celebrate, and let go.

 

Have you recently felt the need to spend time alone? Have present-day life-events truly taken your breath away?

You are not alone.

I’ve attended more funerals this September than I did in all of last year. 

These events remind me to be mindful, sensible and present. To take stock of and appreciate what I have. And to release what no longer serves me.

I had time alone in my home this past weekend. In the silence I made a promise to myself to move on this day, only in the direction of what I most needed. I sat in the midst of unfolded laundry and cried.

I cried for my friend who just buried her son. I cried for my broken moments and for everyone I love who just lost one of their loves. 

And then something weird happened. Something meaningful and beautiful. As I moved into a deeper space, my knowing-soul-self told me the story of me. 

I listened and saw things from a completely different perspective. The weight of over-thinking dissapeared. I let go.

In the midst of unfolded laundry and red puffy eyes, I came to realize that I am living my dreams! I’m blessed to have an amazing family and a career that allows me to do what I love most….Love people out loud.

And so it is that I am writing about the Autumn Equinox because as it is without, so it is within. 

Synchronicity is my friend.

The Autumn Equinox brings balance. 

Happy Autumn!
