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!

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!

We did a spectacular segment on Twin Cities Live about living with more intention this Holiday Season!

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

Allow your Intuition to grow!

You-had-something planned(1)

Three important things to remember…

The-three-most-important

May the voice of your intuition sing!

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!

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!

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.
