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!

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!

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!

Hey Summer Solstice!

 

hey summer solstice

I love to write about celebrating…especially when it comes to the light of the soul!

On Friday, June 21, the sun beams bright from our skies and longer than on any other day of the year. It’s summer solstice!

The word ‘solstice’ means sun standing still and is derived from the Latin word solstitium.

It’s true; the summer solstice is the longest day of the year. Solstices are contrasting on either side of the equator, so the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is the actually the winter solstice in the Southern Hemisphere.

I like to think of the solstice as being triggered by the tilt of the Earth.

The divine energy it radiates will help elevate your vibration! Solstices help us dial into to ourselves so we can better comprehend where to point our personal focus.

Whatever we focus on multiplies. 

In fact, what we see, what we say, and what we think is what we get. 

What are you focusing on?

Whatever it is, you are giving it great power.

For example…

The level of personal expectation we attach to our lives, including our work is astounding. All of our endeavors, including the professional ones, illustrate something of who we are at the core.

This has nothing to do with status; it’s all about soul. 

Your soul is involved in your business

One of the elements I appreciate as an intuitive coach is my ability to profoundly connect with people. Many feel alone and small, and fear being exposed. But I see the light in their souls and reflect it back. Most of all, I love and believe in people. Connecting with and helping others is my passion.

I have connected soul to soul with people even before I came out of the psychic closet. In my life I’ve been in real estate, cut hair, sold print advertising and worked for a technology firm. These are just a few of my past vocations. 

Though you may not always love the work you are doing right now, there is something special in it for you. Your soul guided you there for a reason. Find that something and your life will become even more dazzling. 

Make a habit out of finding something to appreciate everywhere you go and feel yourself fill with light. The light is your connection to your higher-knowing-self.

Allow this inner-knowing to be the backdrop of your every action. The Universe supports you in this.

We human beings are magical creatures. We can heal a broken heart or break a whole one with words that hold comfort and affection or anxiety and acrimony.

The words we say to ourselves are the most powerful of all.

Speak with kindness. 

Compassion can be a lifesaver.

always-on-my-path

So as you prepare for the summer solstice, find something you like about where you are, and speak and think words that feel like a hug. The divine energy of this solstice will help elevate your vibration!

The Light That is You!

I don’t know about you, but I drown in too shallow of water.

For years I have written myself out of sadness and into the light.

The spirit within 1

I definitely gravitate toward people who have danced with their own shadows. Those who are willing to sink into their pain in order to catapult themselves out of it!

You know them and may even be one of them. I’m referring to the writers, singers, authors, deep thinkers, painters and sensitive lovers of life.

While it’s true that I’ve made peace with my own loneliness and now feel whole, it’s also true that balance is a moving target.

Balance-is-a-moving B

What I mean is, we can find our balance, meaning peace but things around and within us change. That’s life. It is when we can find our balance again and again that life begins to feel really good! Offer yourself silence

Our innate intuitive knowledge resides in the light. So do those who have danced with their own shadows. danced with my shadows until

Light attracts Light

The first time I saw the phrase, Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe I fell in love with it. But our vibration is not about who we are, it’s about how we are so how does that translate when it comes to our tribe?

Are there people who can be comfortable enough within their own wobble that they won’t be dissatisfied with ours?

The answer to this is YES. Just be yourself. Be your loving, approving-self whenever you are able. When you are not, just breathe.

Breathe and allow your calm, knowing, higher-soul-self to settle in. Let the moments that stink be just that, moments. Write them out of yourself and into the light!

I had one those moments tonight when I was faced, yet again with the knowledge that as a medium, I’m still considered strange.

For-over-30years-Ive (1)

I’m back in the light!

LIFE’S A BITCH BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE!

April snow 2019

SNOW is a FOUR-Letter-Word in my house. Typically I’m pretty chill about the weather but this winter has changed all that. I’m pissed! 

Living in and raising children in Minnesota has been divine. The people, schools, and seasons are amazing! Well, all but one season that is..winter. It’s not the cold that bothers me so much, it’s the ice and snow…and we have had so much of it this season. I know the entire planet is experiencing weird climate changes and they are not fun. 

Frankly, it’s made me a little grouchy today. I’ve held out on doing much posting on social media because I haven’t wanted my yucky vibe to wash over anyone or anything. My clients rescheduled due to the snow, ice, sleet, wind and thunderstorms so I’ve had some time to think.

The other day one of my kids borrowed my car and forgot to return the key. It was lost within said child’s room. As a result of that and the snow, I was late to a meeting and unfortunately, totally bitchy. 

I apologized to my client, a smart business owner and explained that I would be more relaxed in a few minutes. She said, “No problem, just be who you are.” I loved her response and thought…I’m not being who I are, I’m being how I are! 

Allowing your spirit to shine

So I’ve been pondering the art of moving from a heavy place emotionally speaking, to a light place. Not because I feel heavy right now but because through my work and my life in general, I meet people in various stages of grief. As a medium, I’m a conduit between worlds so am witness to some pretty glorious moments of forgiveness, clarity and closure. There are a few recurring powerhouse components that elevate and escalate the process. 

The pivotal factor is our willingness to change. 

Change is challenging for most of us, especially when it involves death, divorce, or any other emotional crisis. As a medium and intuitive coach my clientele includes people who have experienced at least one of the above in a big way.

Let’s face it, most of us have experienced some level of emotional crisis.

Because we have gone through or are in the midst of a crisis doesn’t make us special, it just makes us survivors of life’s bumps. Everyone experiences some level of tragedy and sadness and I am in no way playing that down.  Clearly, some wounds go deeper than others.

I am not a therapist and so not qualified to speak from a psychological standpoint. I speak from a spiritual standpoint.

The brilliant light of my soul

Finding a way to move through the pain and not be defined by it is vital. Knowing the darkness and choosing to move toward the light deepens the colors in our soul. Everything then has more flavor and brings greater delight.

pablo - 2019-03-31T145614.930

In my experience, when I  feel blue or depressed it is horrible and I find it difficult to see with any clarity. But we are all more than our feelings and emotions. This means we are not depression even though we may feel depressed. We are beings of light and when we are sad that light seems dull or even extinguished, but it is not.

When I remember that what I’m experiencing is just a moment in my life, I feel empowered. My energy is ignited, my thoughts fill me with light, and the light fills me with joy.

Inhale the beauty

So what’s the fastest way to get there?

Excerpt from The Happy Medium: Speaking the Language of Intuition

For centuries musicians, philosophers, poets and the like have searched for the key to happiness with as much passion as the many scientists who study energy in its countless forms. What’s interesting is that happiness is an actual energy. If only they had all gotten together and read the Winnie-the-Pooh books by A. A. Milne, they may have found their answers neatly tucked within the pages.

Do you remember Eeyore, the cynical character in the Winnie-the-Pooh books? He’s Winnie-the-Pooh’s ever-glum, satirical, and doubtful donkey friend. In his eyes, nothing ever goes right, so as “luck” would have it, nothing much does.

And then there’s Pooh’s enthusiastic, energetic, optimistic—yet less-than-responsible—mischief-making tiger friend, Tigger. He loves to bounce around and thinks that whatever he does, he does best. He’s happy-go-lucky, and so as “luck” would have it, things repeatedly turn out well for him.

So what does this have to do with lightening our mood?

If we are willing to go with a more light-filled thought versus the dark ones, our mood is elevated. The higher the thought the more light. The more light, the more happiness and insights.

It’s true that what we see is what we get. This is not only a mind-set—it’s an energy-set. Our “luck” is simply a manifestation of our vibrational energy frequency. Our vibrational frequency is the level at which we radiate. It’s the vibe we radiate.

What’s your vibe?

Feelings and emotions

The higher the thought the brighter the light.

When we feel irritated by someone’s driving or attitude, just be as neutral possible. Neutral is of the light so this means you are getting closer to it!

Remember…

People see things as they are, not as we are. 

We are not our emotional state of being. We are souls made of light.

Our feelings show us how we are not who we are.

Being willing to lighten our thoughts lightens our emotional load. 

Being willing to change changes everything.

The spirit within

Our feelings and emotions don’t determine who we are, just how we are at the moment.

It’s true, life can be a bitch but we don’t have to be!
