One Helpful Person Coming Right Up!

We are sent help from Spirit each and every day. We may not realize this all of the time.
If you are desiring to manifest a level of awareness, the Universe will place the best person to introduce you to a new class, teacher, book etc. at the appropriate time when your soul is ready, willing and able. This has to do with trusting your prayers have been heard.
The way Spirit shows it to me is this way ~ You have a desire you pray for help to get your there. For example ~ you would like to manifest a new job. 
You put your application out there, interview and nothing happens. You have been as proactive as you can.
Meanwhile the current job is uncomfortable, you are struggling. The people around you at the current job are triggering you. The triggers are sent by the Universe to help you work through your people skills. They are helping you manifest how to deal with the current situations so you do not have to repeat what has transpired in the current and past work scenarios.
So, you then learn how to communicate, how to not take things personally and actually feel pretty good and not as stressed or drained at work.
Then someone tells you about a new position opening up somewhere else. You then apply to the job and then are hired.
This is one way how manifestation works.
You have been sent the people who will assist you to find the new job.
We are here to learn and grow. Each and every relationship is to help you evolve and grow. 
Pay attention to every person that enters your life. Some are here for a brief moment and some are lifelong relationships.
Ever think you may be the one that Spirit has sent to help another person's manifestations?

Blessings and Light,

Rules of Spiritual Enlightenment

I'd like to write a little about the spirituality and rules. To begin with I would like to say this ~ there aren't any 100% guaranteed rules or absolutes in life. Not one. 
Many, myself included have heard all of the you must do this, you cannot do that, this is the only way etc. 
My questions are ~ Who said? Who made this rule? Was it a fellow human? Where did this rule come from? 
I do believe in tradition, passing down information but I would like to say this, all information has come from someone, from somewhere (most likely from their own thoughts). Some traditions make sense some information does not.
Here is my advice ~ think twice before you make something a personal truth. Use your own intuition to help guide you to see if a concept or a belief resonates with you.
For example ~ there really is no wrong way to sage a space. You may go clockwise, counterclockwise, back and forth as long as your intention is to clear the space it will help get the job done.
I have heard people say that you may not mix crystals, some prefer to be used alone. This is one of those beliefs or rules that came from someone. 
Now, do I think there are areas where you should exercise caution? Absolutely! There are doors I would not dare to think of opening. 
Often we make decisions on the spot. Here are some suggestions to help you with your own rules of spirituality:

  • Harm no one, sending out any type of revenge is not only harmful to others but to you as well. Energy sent out is the same energy sent back. 
  • Your intention is the most powerful element in any practice. If you intend to work in the light and with love then this is the most important element.
  • Be cautious trying to influence another. I spoke about this earlier about energy being sent out and back. If you try to control another, well another may try to control you.
  • Read, educate yourself. Find like-minded people/teachers that you resonate with. I love to chat with people. In the discussions I often find the answers start to come to mind based on my own belief system and consciousness. When like-minded people get together they help raise each other's consciousness.
  • If you would like to learn more about a subject then educate yourself by reading etc. then see if it feels right to you.
  • Go within, meditate, ask your higher self to help you see more clearly. Listen to your higher guidance.
Don't get me wrong I love to study from teachers and mentors however, I always ask myself with the material being presented if it feels right or resonates. I then may add my own personal touch to the information shared. 
What I am trying to say in this blog is to not be intimidated by all of the rules of spirituality and life. Use your own discernment. Because someone says it must be does not always mean it has to be this way for you. Too many rules have been created out of fear and not having all of the facts or information and limited belief systems. 

What rules are you living by? Are they the based on the beliefs or fears of others?
Or are have you gone within to find your personal truths and applied these beliefs to your life. Only you have the keys to your own enlightenment.

Blessings and Light,

Oracle Cards ~ An Excerpt From My Book ~

Oracle Cards
Oracle cards are cards that do not relate to the tarot
correspondences. There are thousands and thousands of oracle
cards. They all have the author/artist’s interpretations and
messages. They usually have a theme to go along with the deck. There are cards with all different messengers and themes. There are cards with angels, animals, goddesses, saints, positive affirmations, chakras,
and more.
The same guidelines as the tarot cards apply when working with
the oracle cards. I often have people work with the oracle cards in addition to the tarot cards. For example I have them to do a simple layout with the tarot, document the results, and then do the same layout with the oracle cards. Almost every time the message and result are the same. This is the beauty of working with divination tools.
Most of the time you will receive the same answer/message.
Here is a simple protocol I suggest using ~ 

  • Select a time and place where you will have some privacy.
  • Be sure to clear yourself and the space you are working in example ~ sage (spray or mist) light your candle, use some incense or even play some music.
  • Say a prayer to connect you to your higher guidance ~ I call upon my higher self, my guides, my guardians to assist me with the wisdom that is for my highest and best good now.
  • Sometimes it is best to write down questions beforehand that you would like to ask.
  • You can simply pull a card for the message of the day. Later on you can see how the card related to the day with the messages you had received.
  • You can also ask what obstacles may I encounter, what am I not seeing accurately, is there a message from a passed over loved one or a guide?
  • Journal your messages/readings this will help you open up and trust your guidance even more.
  • When you are finished with your card session ~ thank the influences that assisted you with your messages/guidance and open up the circle. We create a circle of light to enclose the energy and we open it up when we are complete with our session.
Do I have a favorite oracle deck? No, I don't I have at least one hundred decks. They are all beautiful, all give me messages that are validating where I am at. If you are looking to purchase a deck, I encourage you to use the demo. Ask a question then pull a card, if the message resonates with your consciousness then it is a winner, if not then find another deck.

Remember these cards can confirm many things for you. Ultimately you must use your own sense of good judgement and intuition to make decisions in your life.

Blessings and Light,

Personal Obstacles

Manifestation is an area where many struggle. There are areas in our lives where manifesting is easier than others. This is where we are able to see where we have chosen to receive our growth on a soul level.
Some are able to manifest easily in the area of abundance. It seems to come to them effortlessly while some live paycheck to paycheck. 
Some have chosen addictions as challenges to overcome.
There are those who are "lucky" in love and of course there are those whose picker seems to be off.
Once you have identified the area(s) where you struggle, you can accept this is your chosen path for personal growth, things seem to flow more smoothly.
I suggest looking at each obstacle as a milestone to work through to get to a place of comfort. You may never "get there" but you can have peace and some success.
Also, if you are aware of your challenge area then you can be a little more forgiving with yourself.
It is also important to not judge yourself for ending at the same beginning place again. It is not the same if you have a different awareness of your sensitive areas. 
Here are some suggestions to help you cope with your re-occuring obstacles:

  • Journal your experiences, sometimes writing it down helps you reflect and release the frustrations you may have. You can also document your victories in your area of struggle.
  • Ask someone who loves you and who is honest, kind with their words to help you understand where you seem to be repeating things and are not aware of your behavior.
  • See each person/experience as an opportunity for growth.
  • Mentorship, find someone who is successful in the areas you struggle to help you implement new ideas.
  • Forgive yourself for making repeat "offenses".
  • Be honest with yourself, no more justification. There is a fine line with not being hard on yourself to switching gears to victimhood. 
  • Faith ~ keep your spiritual connection strong. By connecting to the light you are able to recharge your batteries with light. 
  • Meditation ~ by meditating you are helping clear the mind ~ this leads to more and deeper understanding.
  • Read books on the subject, educate yourself.
  • Hypnosis can help you redirect your patterns, it does work for some.
  • Let go of the old stories of pain and disappointment. Learn from them and more on. Create new stories with happier endings.
  • Reward yourself often when you are able to re-direct or change your usual pattern. Celebrate all your successes the big and small victories.
  • Affirmations are wonderful to reprogram the patterns. "I am able to attract to me the romantic partner that is for my highest and best good. The partner that will love, respect and be the best match energetically for me." "I understand each relationship provides experience and understanding about myself. Each one brings me closer to the ideal partner for me."
  • If someone criticizes you in the area you struggle, try to not take it personally. This is an opportunity to change your behavior. Of course, look within to see if there is any truth in the statement. There may be some truth, there may not be. However, look within to see why someone may make this statement.
  • Raise your vibration. By raising your vibration, there is another level of understanding. You will have epiphanies of solutions and different ways to work through your struggles. You can raise your vibration by meditating, eating healthy foods, getting plenty of rest, spend time with high vibrational people, receiving healing, going to counseling and using a few of the techniques I have suggested above. 
We all have areas of opportunity for growth. The more aware we are of our "problem" areas the more easily our lives flow. Also, I encourage you to engage with your karmic areas with love, patience, understand and humor. 

Blessings and Light,
