Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of July 2, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Blue Apatite, Star Ruby and Aqua Aura Quartz. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Blue Apatite – Stimulates thoughts and ideas. It is used to increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive/psychic awareness. Helps you maintain focus, learn, concentrate effectively, think clearly, and communicate better. It can clear the aura, enable spiritual attunement, and bring powerful psychic awareness. Increases creativity and imagination. Having apatite near you or wearing it can bring harmony on all levels, and bring inner peace. This occurs because it helps release old feelings. Apatite is reputed to physically assist with nail problems, allergies, arthritis, bones, eyesight, glandular problems, muscles, nervous system, weight loss. 


Star Ruby – Ruby in general stimulates circulation and amplifies energy. Increases vitality, overcoming exhaustion. Ruby is a stone that deepens a couple’s relationship and encourages closeness and commitment. It is a stone of courtly love and may honour admiration from a distance. Ruby increases passion. It can also ease physical ailments related to pregnancy and menstrual pain. Ruby helps banish nightmares. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings self-confidence. It propels one toward prosperity and achievement. Ruby encourages you to enjoy the simple pleasures of being in the physical world. It increases desire and sexual energy. Star Ruby has the same metaphysical properties as Ruby, but with increased healing and magical energy. The Light of the Soul is reflected and grounded within the star of the Ruby. It is extremely helpful for those inclined to self-harm or self-neglect, and is quite beneficial in overcoming sexual dysfunction or the trauma of sexual or power abuse and suppressed anger. As a stone of spiritual Light, it can be used by Light workers and healers to integrate high-frequency energy into the body. It assists one in recognizing the true abundance of life. 


Aqua Aura Quartz – Enhances communications of all kinds. This also assists with growing and using self-expression in a calm and loving manner. Aqua Aura is called both a success stone and an abundance stone. Helps enhance psychic abilities. Aqua Aura is said to assist in conscious awareness of one’s own motivations and patterns. Aqua Aura is used by crystal healers and others to calm the emotions and the emotional body. It is a powerful stress reliever. It is also a strong energy for reducing or eliminating anger. Physically Aqua Aura is reputed to help with throat problems, stress-related physical or mental illness, depression and anxiety disorders, thymus bland, vertigo, immune system disorders. 

We have been stressed out and exhausted lately. 😕 I know, I’ve been feeling it too. We have been lacking energy, feeling tired, and maybe depressed. We have been letting life pass us by just trying to keep up with the regular stuff. I know… I’m guilty! This week FINALLY looks like a turn around point! We are going to become more in-tune and spiritually aware. We are going to release our angers, fears, frustrations, and past traumas in healthy ways. Expressing yourself creatively can really help process emotions. I feel like we are also subconsciously processing things, and this week will be one of letting go and moving forward, even if you aren’t consciously doing so. We are going to have more energy, ideas and clarity to pursue our goals in life. We are going to get our vitality back. It’s time to have some fun, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life!! Having fun is a perfect way to let the shit go! And hey, it’s summer! So why not get out there and do something that’s fun, that you enjoy, that reminds you of how awesome life can be. We are going to see how amazingly abundant our world is this week! Let’s see what the cards say for this week! 


These cards are just so beautiful… as always! But seriously though ❤️ For what we’ve been going through, this is exactly what we need to be reminded of. We have the power to shape our destiny. So much more of it needs to be shaped from our heart and soul, and less of it from the mind. When you get wrapped up in the thoughts in your mind, this is when anxiety takes over. Depression, nervous system issues, immune system disorders, stomach ailments, you name it! We need to ground our awareness back to our heart, and even deeper into the soul. We need to operate from there. The place where you were safe as a child, when you knew you could do anything you wanted and didn’t worry about the details. The child that let fun, and their heart guide their pursuits and goals. The child that didn’t care what they looked like or what they had, only how they felt. This card also says that we can’t live in a dream world either. If you are too spaced out and not conscious in each moment, you miss out on life. If your too focused on responsibilities then your life will be out of balance too. You just have to find a better level where you feel happy and grounded. We have a lot of work to do, but make sure you incorporate passion and fun into your life, and care for the child within you. Ground yourself by looking at the picture of the Star Ruby, and feeling yourself be grounded to the Earth through its beautiful energy. The anxiety, depression, low energy, etc. that we have been dealing with is a result of us stressing over the past. Let the past go. It’s what you have to do to lighten your load. You HAVE to. Feel the fire igniting within you, and the smoke releasing everything that ever weighed you down. Do it however you want to. It can be as easy as saying to yourself, “I’m letting this go.” It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t even have to be something specific, you might not even be aware of what’s really bothering you. Just let it all go. It is not helping you or serving you to hold on. It’s basically just forgiving yourself and anyone else, and choosing to let it go. Making a more conscious choice to live a more positive life. Now…. What DO you want? What does a happy life look and feel like to you? You have the opportunity to achieve and attract your heart’s true desires. Clearly decide what you want. Try writing it down, that helps bring it into the physical reality. Most importantly, know that you are truly deserving of everything you desire. Love yourself. Feel the fire and passion of the ruby, and heat up your life with self-love, desire, creativity, love for others, joy and happiness. Success, achievement and abundance are a result of our positive actions in life! 


Ground Yourself – This card is a signal that your energy and attention need to be grounded. If you’ve been feeling spacey, confused or forgetful, this card speaks to the reason. “Ungroundedness” means that your attention is directed too high – as if you’re not in your body. A balance is needed between a focus on Spirit and a focus on Earth. You can ground yourself by walking barefoot on grass or soil, by eating foods from the ground like potatoes or carrots, by rubbing your bare feet, by touching a tree or plant, or by visualizing roots coming from the bottom of your feet into the Earth. Grounding will help you better concentrate and focus, and will also increase your connection to the Angels. Additional meanings for this card: Spend time gardening; Work with flower essences; Adjust your diet and other lifestyle habits so that they support your mental and physical awareness; Make sure the words you speak or write are practical, grounded and understandable; Be down-to-Earth and authentic in your relationships; Send love and light to Mother Earth.


Let Your Past Go – You received this card because your thoughts and feelings about the past are holding you back. You’re repeating a pattern because of unfinished emotions from your past. This card is a sign to forgive and move on, to stop painful patterns. It doesn’t mean that you need to be with the person you’ve forgiven. It simply means that you’ve let toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Additional meanings for this card: Approach a new situation or person with positive expectations; Avoid routines; Speak to a councillor or support group; Forgive those who’ve hurt you; Forgive yourself; The worst is now behind you; Keep your thoughts about this situation high and bright. 


What Do You Desire – This card comes to you because you’ve been waiting for external signs of what you should do next. The Angels say the answer comes from inside of you. You must decide what you want before anything can change. Carve out time to meditate upon your true heart’s desires, and know that you deserve the best, as we all do. Additional meanings for this card: Use affirmations and positive visualizations to manifest your desire; Clarify your desires; Release any guilt or fear regarding asking for what you want. 

Read that last line one more time. Xoxo, Carrie

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of April 2, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Blue Flame Aura Quartz, Blue Apatite and Rainbow Moonstone. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Blue Flame Aura Quartz – Excellent for use in spiritual initiations and rituals, and for deepening meditation and spiritual attunement. It creates a multi-dimensional energy shift, drawing kundalini energy up the spine and through the subtle bodies, adjusting its effect to provide what each soul needs for evolution. Stimulates the Third Eye and Higher Crown Chakras, enhancing focus and increasing the ability to “read” people at an energetic and subtle level and to understand the information that was communicated. It is a beneficial stone for creating and maintaining a state of homeostasis within the physical and emotional bodies. It has a high energy and is helpful for removing energy blockages, especially those impeding creativity. It may help people with diabetes, MS, cellular and bone cancers.


Blue Apatite – Helps with development of psychic gifts and spiritual attunement. Assists with lucid dreaming and astral travel. It encourages you to be of service in a more humanitarian way. It helps you accept yourself as you really are, and to gain greater self confidence. It works through both the third eye chakra and throat chakras. It will stimulate the growth of clairvoyance or psychic visions. Cleanses the aura. Suppresses appetite and raises your metabolic rate. It helps you to accept yourself as you are, to see the truth within yourself, because until you really can see the authentic you, change cannot happen. It will assist you to release any feelings of guilt you may be holding onto, and its energy will also stimulate an increase in self confidence, and will uplift your spirits. It will heal etheric leakages that have been occurring within your consciousness. Helps past life issues. Helps the immune system, and it may also help the eyes to see more clearly, in both a physical and spiritual sense.


Rainbow Moonstone – Has a gentle and calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception, and enhances creativity, compassion, endurance and inner confidence. It brings balance, harmony, and hope. The Rainbow effect brings in a spectrum of light, and can help with clearing and bringing in uplifting energies. It has been said to have the power to grant wishes.

The crystals are very soothing to me.. yet very colourful and full of energy. I have been hearing there is a lot of water energy going on, and I can definitely feel that in these crystals. This week is all about finding our true selves and becoming empowered by this truth. We are still going through changes, as we are evolving. We are being reminded that the answers we seek are found within. We can no longer compare ourselves to others. We have to be who we are in the most genuine and natural sense. We have to do what is right for ourselves. We can no longer look around to everyone else to validate us. We are working through some past life traumas and fears to be able to find the courage and confidence to express our true selves. I had a vision of seagulls before I started, and I felt like I was at the ocean. Most of all, I felt free. I could feel myself soaring above the water, feeling the mist from the waves refresh me and cleanse me, feeling the wind breezing beneath my winds. No agenda. Just freedom. We need to find the alignment within ourselves where things can just flow. It’s like we are struggling to “find ourselves”, but all we have to do is exist. All we have to do is allow the moments to be as they are, appreciate them and have love for everything. If you are always seeking to be something more, where (or when) do you find contentment? You find your freedom by being free in your spirit, by truly loving and appreciating yourself. Accept yourself and be authentic. Forgive everything. Express your individuality and do what makes you happy and proud. We have creativity inside us that is begging to be expressed. Healing is occurring this week, and expressing your emotions and creativity is definitely going to help that along. Have a bath or spend time in or near water to cleanse and heal. The crystals are also here going to work where they need to. Let’s see which cards are chosen for this week. 


Archangel Michael is here watching over us, encouraging self-love and creativity. He has so much passion that his sword burns with intensity. All you have to do is call on him to help you. He will use his fiery sword to cut the cords of trauma from past lives, negativity from past events, and hurt from past relationships. He will help you release the pain you carry. He will give you strength to move forward on your path. I chose Rainbow Moonstone, and a card with a rainbow! So there is definitely beauty and abundance on the horizon. Divine Purpose is reminding us we are always on our path. Sometimes we get dragged down, but if we only looked up, we would see the beautiful rainbow bestowing blessings upon our life. Things are going to get hard no matter what you do. Just remember to have hope, and know that everything serves its purpose and lesson. Keep your head up. Don’t miss out on the good things. Appreciate the beauty all around you, that is in your life effortlessly. I stand outside every night and watch the sky, and the moon and stars. This is where I connect and where I live in the moment. This is where I can do nothing other than appreciate the complicated enormous beauty that our universe is. Find that time in your day where you can just be you. Where you can exist in the moment in a genuine way, with no pressure and no agenda. Appreciate yourself just as you are. Divine Purpose is reminding us to take back our power. Your role is essential in this world. You don’t have to try so hard and get knocked down every time things aren’t perfect. The Universe always has our back, even if we can’t see it. All you need to do is love yourself. When we love ourselves, we are stronger than allowing outer influences to get us down. To help, we need to shield ourselves from expectations, energy and attitudes of others. We need to find our strength within and not allow other people to control our lives or emotions. We need to shield ourselves from negative energy and have a healthy positive sense of self. This is where we find our own power, when we no longer have to believe what others say, where we can live happily without worrying about what anyone else is doing. Not only should we pray for shielding, but you can also pray for healing. Pray to be encompassed in white or green healing light. Pray for the comfort, strength and healing you seek. Pray to Archangel Michael. Let Archangel Michael help you release fear and attachments, and move forward in your life with confidence, freedom and strength. Our prayers our being heard and our wishes answered!

Archangel Michael – You received this card because Archangel Michael wishes to work with you and your Divine mission. Like all of the Archangels, Michael can be with you and everyone simultaneously, as he is unlimited and nondenominational. He helps anyone who asks, especially if you have a life purpose to help the Earth. As the giver of strength, Archangel Michael reminds you of your role on Earth. He helps you release fear and have a healthy level of self-confidence. Call upon him anytime you are afraid, and know that you are immediately protected by the grace of Heaven. Ask Archangel Michael to guide your decisions based on your purpose, instead of fear, and rest assured that he will lead you to your highest potential. Whenever you feel alone, afraid, or vulnerable, allow the power of this magnificent Angel to bring a comforting sense of protection to you.

Divine Purpose – This powerful card relates to your mission here on Earth. Your Divine Purpose is something that you chose to experience on a soul level before coming into this lifetime. When you receive this card in a reading, the answer to your question has to do with life fulfillment and soul lessons. Choose the pathway that leads you closer to your purpose, and let go of the fleeting and temporary diversions. The Divine Purpose of the Indigo is to bring about the changes our planet needs to help create a society built upon integrity, truth, and cooperation. This card is a message from the Angels to realize just how powerful and essential your role is in the world. This is your call to leadership!

Shielding – Although, you may be strong at heart, your indigo energy is among the most sensitive on the planet, which is why you feel so intensely in situations where others seem calm. For that reason, this card is asking you to energetically shield yourself from negativity. Know that the angels are always around you, and they’re powerful or is her continually at your disposal for energetic shielding. Simply ask Heaven to surround you with angelic light, and know that you’re spiritually and emotionally protected. Anytime you’re in a harsh situation, immediately request that the angels shield you.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 19, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Specularite, Amethyst and Black Tourmaline. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Specularite – Dissolves negativity in all forms. Balances the meridians and yin yang energies. Assists mental functioning, memory and development. Calms the mind and instills deep inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth. Helpful for past life recall and connection to the energy of the soul, Angelic realm and otherworld communication.


Amethyst – A meditative and calming stone which promotes calm, balance, and peace. It is used to eliminate impatience. Beneficial for legal problems and money issues. Increases spirituality and enhances intuition and psychic powers of all kinds. It is used to open one’s channels to telepathy, past life regression, clairaudience, clairvoyance, and communication with Angels. A stone of protection. Promotes peacefulness, happiness, and contentment. Brings emotional stability, inner strength and helps to enhance flexibility and cooperation. To be flexible at need is a sure sign of strength. A well known sobriety stone. It is used to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking and destructive compulsive behaviours of all kinds.


Black Tourmaline – A protective stone which removes and repels negative energies. Cleanses, purifies, and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. It is great for grounding. It balances, harmonizes, and protects all of the Chakras. Removes fear and boosts self-confidence. Very calming. Those who face challenges from negativity, frequent worrying or OCD can work with Black Tourmaline to help heal these issues. Carry a piece of Black Tourmaline in your pocket to increase physical vitality throughout your day.

We are still very much in need of protection. There are some negative energies either around us, or within us. This may be you or someone else in your life that may be dealing with negative energy in the form of addictions, legal issues, frequent worrying or compulsive disorders. If you find yourself dealing with these types of issues, please do an energy cleansing, cord cutting and shielding of your chakras. (Google some YouTube videos if you need assistance) If this pertains to someone in your life, please still do those things, and do them for that person too (using visualization). This negative energy needs to be transmuted into positivity, into confidence and self-love. Most, if not all, self-destructive behaviours really stem from a lack of self-love. When you don’t love yourself, you don’t honour your body, your mind, or your soul. You allow the negative energy to weigh you down and affect your life in negative ways, such as legal issues, money troubles or addictive behaviours. Only when you have the courage and love for yourself, can you truly know you deserve the best in life. When you believe you deserve the best in life, you get the best out of life. It’s all about the law of attraction, about how we feel, and how much we love. We are creating our lives everyday, and without love and positivity in your life, negativity is bound to breed. It’s not always going to be easy. There is going to be times where you need to dig deep, to hold on to your strength in times where you would give in. The crystals tell me that these issues could stem from many past lifetimes of experiences, so they could be deeply engrained. Don’t be so hard on yourself, just make the decision to move towards healing, and to love yourself. The crystals, Angels and Elemental Spirits are here today to help us cleanse and transmute this negative energy. They are here to calm us, and help us find some emotional flexibility. They will help boost our self-confidence and happiness. They are going to help us move towards the harmony that we seek. Let’s see which cards the Fairies have for us this week.

The Princess of Autumn is our little shove to get our crap together. Get those plans in order, get your emotions in order, get your health in order, get your life in order. You will have wonderful prospects with respect to your career or education, and they will play out perfectly if you can pull up your socks and get it together. You can do this!! And the time IS now. If you keep procrastinating and saying tomorrow, next week, next year, you will just keep doing that and getting nowhere. Make the changes you need to now, and then things will improve! Be fearless and choose happiness. Face those swords like we talked about last week and handle it like a boss. Pursue your dreams, because amazing career opportunities are in the cards. Take back your power and make decisions that empower your life. Be responsible and make good decisions. If you make positive choices in your life, you will be rewarded with abundance. If you over analyze, you just waste time and stay stuck. Do what’s in your heart, that you know is right, and get moving. You are more than capable, and it’s going to benefit you! After you are out of the darkness that you have been hiding in, you will emerge to beautiful gardens teaming with life and beauty, and you will find the power to harness rainbows in your life. Anyone can bounce back from where they have been. Take the hard times and use them as lessons to move forward. The rainbow on this last card is proof that there is beauty and rewards waiting for you, if you can walk yourself out of this storm, and choose a new direction. The crystals will be sending their healing energy to help you find your inner strength.


Princess of Autumn – “You can never know too much!” – or so says our Princess of Autumn. This optimistic and happy young lady simply loves to learn. She’s charming and reliable, upbeat, and so very clever. She does have a bit of a mischievous streak running through her, so you may want to keep an eye out for that! Besides being an absolute joy to be around, she’s also responsible and wise beyond her years. Did we mention that she loves to learn? This gal can be the perpetual student, taking longer than usual to get out into the “real world”. She may also think things through way too long before acting. But when she does move into action, everything will go perfectly! The Ace of Autumn has grown up, and the books that were closed to her before are now open! The knowledge she has gained has provided the abundance accumulating on the desk. Addition meanings of this card: Time to go back to school. Study and research. Seminars or courses. Good news about finances. Needing a push to get started. Working your way up the ladder. 


Ace of Spring – The time to act is now! The fairy of Spring presents you with a wonderful new opportunity that will allow you to achieve what you desire. Your fledgling hopes are now about to take flight, and all that’s needed from you is the courage to see things through. Be daring, be fearless, and then happily pursue your most treasured dreams! If you don’t have every little detail worked out, don’t let that hold you back. All the steps will reveal themselves as you move forward. The youthful fairy in this card is tending to the young Hawthorne tree, which sprang from the Staff of Joseph of Arimathea. The sapling is sparkling with Divine Love, to indicate that your new plans will be fruitful and abundant. Additional meanings of this card: New beginnings. Career changes. Birth announcements. Promotions. 


Seven of Summer – There are pros and cons to virtually every decision. The situation you’re currently in is demanding a choice from you, and procrastination is simply no longer an option. What you decide involves actions that may benefit you physically, emotionally, financially, intellectually or spiritually. Recognizing that you always have a choice is a great realization about your personal power. However, it also means that YOU are responsible for the outcome of your choices. The moment to choose has arrived! You could make a list of every possible alternative and evaluate it, or your could ask God and your Angels for guidance. But the time to choose is now. Daydreaming can be a lovely way to get insight into a challenging situation… or it can be a way to avoid taking action. Make sure that your imaginings serve a productive and positive purpose. Make a plan to put your dreams into action, one step at a time. A fairy allows sunlight to shine through a prism, onto a bed of white roses. The roses indicate that his intentions are pure, but the prism shows that there are many possibilities. Additional meanings of this card: Needing to regain focus. Overanalyzing. Too many choices. Receiving guidance to detox.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 19, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Sunstone, Goldstone and Aragonite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Sunstone – Dispels fears and phobias. A leadership stone. Used to decrease stress and lift depression. Brings good luck and abundance, and turns negative energy into positive. It is said to be helpful in contacting animal or spirit guides. Used to increase physical and sexual energy and heal depression, phobias and stress related illness.


Goldstone – Helps attain goals. Helps to stay calm and stabilize emotions. It is an energy generator and deflects unwanted energies, making it useful for protection. Revitalizes the energy field. 


Aragonite – Increases energy, especially with prayer. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Diminishes anger and relieves stress. It is helpful to those who need to release attachments and issues from the past. A good Earth healer, it encourages conservation of Earth’s precious resources. A grounding stone that creates a deeper connection to planet Earth.  

I wasn’t sure which Angel Card deck I was going to use today, and I thought, I need to do an Animal Spirit Guide or Nature cards today. The crystals I chose are confirming that energy. They want us to connect to our Animal and Spirit Guides, and they want us to connect to the Earth. We need to deepen our connection to our Earth Mother. We have all grown from her and live on her land. We must take care of our home. The crystals make me feel like we’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, letting fears creep into our thoughts. The crystals are here to heal issues from the past, diminish the anger, stress and depression, and dispel our fears. They are going to help turn any negativity into positive energy. Not only will they boost our confidence to help us attain our goals, it looks like we have luck and abundance on our side as well! Let’s see what the cards say for the week. 


 I decided to pull two cards from the Earth Magic deck and one from the Animal Spirit Guide deck, both by Steven D. Farmer. The Winter Solstice card represents a time where we need to go within and reflect on our lives and find who we truly are. A time to reflect on everything we have learned and how that is going to help us in the future. The crystals are going to help us heal any past issues and transmute anything negative into positive. It is a reminder that we always must go through periods of darkness and times of quiet, but that the sun will return. It always does. Good times are coming. It is a positive time where we are getting ready to unfold, to grow into ourselves more confidently and fully. Our paths are going to unfold before our eyes. There are always going to be bumps in the road, and the Boar reminds you to face those problems head on. There is nothing you can’t handle. The cards and crystals want you to have confidence!! It’s a positive and abundant time, and you will emerge victorious! 

Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but it is also the longest night. The world is very still and the land dormant. Various “Festivals of Light” are celebrated, and have been for thousands of years, serving as a reminder that the light will indeed return. Throughout many cultures there are tales describing this time as the birth of the archetypal Sun King – including the Christian story of Jesus’s birth – representing the hope of renewal from the darkest period of the solar cycle. This image portrays a simple yet powerful representation of the winter solstice. We see a clear reflection of the snowy woods on the still, frozen waters of the lake. The blue tint drapes the scene with an even greater sense of quiet and solace, inviting us to walk very softly lest we disturb the intense yet gentle grace of this scene. The reflection of the trees on the frozen lake reminds us that this is a time for us to go inside – to both our physical shelter as well as our internal world – and there contemplate the season that has passed, the season that is, and the seasons yet to come. Review the past year and ask yourself what the most important lessons you have had to learn are, what you have accomplished, and what dreams and visions you want to manifest in the upcoming year. Whether it has been a relatively smooth ride or a challenging series of events, acknowledge your experience as being the work of Source, no matter what your judgments, fears, or joys are. Honour whatever has happened over the previous several months with gratitude and forgiveness. Then let it go. Allow yourself some solitude so you can spend some quiet, slow time in reflection. Once you feel complete, reflect on your present life, especially focusing on what you are grateful for. When you are finished, consider what is to come – all the different possibilities and potential that exist before you. Allow your imagination to roam without limitation or ambition, and see what shows up. Notice how you feel in your body with whatever scenario plays out in your mind. These are previews of that which is gestating, and can manifest and grow when cared for properly. Patience and stillness is called for here, for just as the Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 

Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flowers sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun – held in the hand of God -invites it upward to the light. This unique plant is rooted in the mud and muck at the bottom of a body of water, it’s stem reaching up to the surface, where the leaves rest quietly. At night the flower closes and sinks below the surface, only to rise with the daylight and once again gradually unfold it’s petals, it’s stem extending above the waterline three feet or more. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently fold in on itself for proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary as the growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment during the day. It’s also just as important that it is rooted, and it is yet another miracle of Nature that something so exquisitely beautiful is formed from the mud and silt at the water’s bottom. Your spiritual unfoldment is occurring at all times whether or not you are aware of it. It is inevitable as long as you put your trust in the hands of the Creator, the one who holds the light. Like the Lotus, your soul is always reaching for the light to fulfill it’s karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot truly be coerced or halted. It has an innate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to the being that is you. You do not need to strive or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself – or others, for that matter. Allowing is the key here. Allow the place in you that naturally wants to follow the light to do so while recognizing that even when you have complete faith, you will face challenges and, occasionally, suffering. Your steady faith and love will guide you on your journey of returning to the light.

Boar (Pig) – Whatever difficulties you’re experiencing now, whether with a relationship, career path, or some other concern, dig in and rummage around until you discover how to solve the problem. Then take immediate action to remedy it. Every time you confront adverse situations in this way, you’ll be uprooting those elements in your life that appear to be obstacles to fulfilling your purpose. Life can sometimes be very uncooperative with your rational mind’s sense of order, and will at times even block your demands of how events or experiences should unfold. If you’re living on Earth, you’re going to get your feet muddy sometimes, but it’s no call for panic, crisis, or drama. Instead, take a couple of deep breathes and view whatever problem you encounter as simply something that needs to be taken care of. As the saying goes, there really are no problems – only creative possibilities. Once you have emerged victorious – which means that you either conquered your problem or changed your thinking about how you initially perceived the situation – you’ll experience a surge of power and confidence. Remember that your power originates from Source, expressed through you and as you. When you vanquished the illusion of the situation being a problem, you’ll not only feel a greater sense of relief and freedom, but you also open the way for your heart, mind, and soul to be more in alignment with the Will of Spirit. When you operate from that perspective, you can overcome anything!

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of December 11, 2016

The crystals I am working with for this week are Petrified Wood, Tiger’s Eye, Smoky Quartz, African Turquoise, and Desert Rose. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Petrified Wood – Good for grounding and stabilizing emotions. Calms survival-based fears. It helps one be practical. A stone of business success. Petrified wood is a good stone for general protection. Physically, it is used to heal bones, backaches, skin and hair. Petrified wood is also used for past life regressions because of its inherent link with the past.


Tiger’s Eye – A stone of protection that is also very stabilizing and grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. Boosts personal power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. A very protective stone which is especially protective during travel. 


Smoky Quartz – A protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It is also an excellent stone for protection from negative energy, as it removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms it into positive energy. Enhances survival instincts, and can help one reach personal and business goals. It is also used in assisting in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Thus, it is a stone that brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It brings creativity to life. Brings wisdom. Is excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Relieves stress, fear, jealousy, anger and other negative emotions by transforming them into positive energies. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage and inner strength. It is very comforting and calming, and can be considered a stone of serenity. Helpful to relieve grief. Used to treat many different problems associated with the lower torso including kidneys, abdomen, pancreas, reproductive organs, menstrual cramps, fertility issues. 


African Turquoise – The ‘Stone of Evolution’, brings encouragement for growth, development and positive change. Opens the mind to new ideas, new possibilities and new existence. It is a stone that brings structure, balance and prosperity. A stone that hands over a key to new life with its offerings. This is a stone that awakens the soul to its intended purpose, encouraging the being to make positive impression while gaining and giving positive wisdom.


Desert Rose – A stone of the mind, as well as an Angelic stone. It is said to bring mental ability and clarity, as well as perception of all kinds, including intuitive perception. Is used in healing to quiet worries and still the mind from distractions and disruptions. Said to be helpful for the spine and the skeleton in general, and for proper alignment of the spine. 

There is a very common theme for this week. Stay grounded and practical. Try to remain calm and not worry, as you are protected. You will survive this week, and there is prosperity to come. We are continuing to learn and grow, learning how to overcome obstacles and remain positive. Learning how to quiet our mind and open it to new possibilities. Keep working on being positive, especially when things get tough. Turn those negatives into positives. Keep your mind clear, calm and open at work, and you will be very successful. It’s funny because I have been suffering from back, hip and leg pain lately, and I feel a bit better today. I do not doubt these crystals are here to heal, any stomach or back issues you may have been experiencing lately. Let’s see which cards hold the message for this week.


The cards are telling me we are definitely protected. We are not alone. We are always protected by our Angels, Guides, Spirits and many other types of beings. The signs are around us always. It’s funny, I just put up a blog post earlier today about appreciating and tuning into guidance we receive, and here are the cards telling us again to ask for signs and watch for them. The cards are telling us to connect with our Angels, Guides and Spirits, by expressing ourselves and asking for signs to guide us. When you connect in this way you experience more and more signs, and become more connected to the universe. We are part of a collective whole, here to help evolve Planet Earth. Notice the two depictions of the stars and sky, the one Angel has her head down, but if she looked up to the universe she would see the signs, and know she is not alone. Keep your head up. Express yourself in healthy ways to mitigate stress and clear your mind this week. Try to express yourself instead of keeping emotions bottled up. This could mean speaking your mind from a place of positive emotion, but also can be working out, meditating, doing something creative, spending time alone or with others. There are many like-minded people out there for you to connect with. Whatever you feel you need to do to express yourself and release emotions. Expression is about taking back your personal power, and knowing that nobody can take this from you. Remember whenever you are feeling down this week, that there are ways to turn your feelings around, and you truly are never alone. There is always a balance, life can’t always be perfect. There may be tough moments, but there are good ones too! You can manifest them quicker by seeing the positive in negative situations, by recognizing the lessons. This is how we evolve. You will see the rewards and should be very lucky this week! Watch for the signs! 

Expression – This card guides you to speak your mind. After all, that’s one of the reasons you are here on this Earth. For so long, people have not spoken up for themselves. As a result, humanity has lived under the tyrannical control of those with power. Now is the time for change, and you are one of the spiritual warriors in charge of initiating that shift. Always speak your mind, but also be aware of how others react to you. Ask the Angels to guide you to communicate in ways that allow you to be heard. If you can express yourself in a manner people can relate to, your concerns and opinions will be much better received. 

You Are Not Alone – As you grow older, you’ll realize that no one on this planet truly knows what he or she is doing – we all just get by as best we can. This card reminds you that you’ve got plenty of help and companionship available to you. Never before have so many people come into a lifetime with the shared Divine purpose of rewriting the script for daily human life. Your mission is so very important, and there are literally millions of other people in this world having very similar experiences. Ask the Angels to help guide you to like-minded people who can relate to you. It will soon become apparent to you that you are an integral part of one of the most significant movements in human history. 

Ask For A Sign – If you’re feeling stuck or confused, then you need a sign to point you in the best direction. Signs are some of the most interactive and consistent messages the Angels can bring. When you regularly ask for them, you’re shown constant reminders that you’re on the right path, and receive clear guidance to help keep you there. You may feel disconnected from other people and wonder why you can’t relate to them. Ask the Angels to show you a plain and recognizable sign that your wish/purpose/dream/hope/desire is relevant and possible, and to let you know the next step to take. You will be very pleased with the outcome, as Heaven will validate and guide you clearly. All you have to do is ask!

Blog Post – Appreciating Guidance

I am sorry I have been absent for the last week, my son has not been feeling great since his last chemo treatments, so we have been taking it easy. I am so thankful that people have continued to “like” my previous Angel Card readings. I just wanted to say thank you, and talk about that for a second. If I come across someone’s reading from a previous time, and I am inclined to click and read or watch it, and if I resonate with it in some way, then I can trust that it was a message I needed to hear now. Even if I posted it a week ago or a year ago, if you happen to read it and take something away from it, it was still meant for you today. Signs and symbols are all around us, every single day. All you need to do is see them and appreciate them. I am always looking for things I resonate with when watching or reading content. More skeptical people would not listen to their intuition and keep scrolling, or take it so literally and seriously (ex: this post was meant for only December 2). By doing this, you breeze past the meaning of the synchronicity, and the message that you need to hear. Listen to the things you feel inclined to do. Lessons are everywhere. Everything is speaking to you if you listen. If you feel guided to watch something or read something, you can be assured there is a message somewhere within it that you need to hear, or a feeling that needs to be felt. This is also how we grow as humans. Sometimes, we just need to laugh and feel happy. Sometimes, we need to feel things deeper than we can even comprehend. What is this moment trying to tell you? How does it make you feel? How can you maximize the positive feelings? How does this very moment resonate with you? For me, I am sitting in my comfortable chair, with my comfy quilt and some coffee, appreciating being warm when it’s very cold outside. Appreciating spending time with my family. Appreciating all the Christmas vibes, the commercials, the movies, the decorations.. Appreciating the beautiful nature outside my window, the sunshine, the trees, the birds.. I have been appreciating the feeling of love that is bursting from my heart, love that I have for so many people in my life. Appreciating all the fun and memories that were made, and what a life it’s been. Appreciating the lessons learned. Appreciating what’s to come, all the adventures, new friends and memories yet to me made. Appreciating what’s left of 2016, and all the good that’s going to come in 2017. Gratitude is a key to living a more positive life. By no means am I perfect… the guidance I receive is probably more for me to learn from than anyone. Gratitude is the space you need to be in to feel deeply and to learn the lessons we are here on Earth to learn. Appreciate the lessons and the beauty, and you will notice more and more. There is always plenty to be thankful for. ❤️ I am so thankful for all of you who read my blog! 😊🙏

Daily Angel Card Reading – December 1, 2016

The crystals I am working with for today are Tiger Iron, Serpentine and Septarian Dragon Stone. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Tiger Iron – A grounding stone that brings protection. It is also a stone of clarity, enabling one to see the truth below the apparent surface of issues. Tiger Iron also helps with creative endeavors and all types of artistic abilities. It is used to bring strength, vitality, confidence, willpower, and balance. It is an excellent stone for people wishing to bring more motivation to their life. A stone of good luck.


Serpentine – Helps with emotional cleansing, chakra cleansing, psychic powers, and to attract love and money. Considered a protective stone. Serpentine is an excellent stone for meditation. Encourages contact with Elemental beings.


Septarian Dragon Stone – Brings calming energies which have a nurturing feel to them, and can bring feelings of joy and uplift the spirit. Used to assist in communication with Mother Earth. A grounding stone, it allows for better tolerance and patience, as well as emotional flexibility.

We continue to have a need to be protected and stay grounded. It is the start of a new month, and energies are slowly shifting. I was hoping when choosing crystals that the Serpentine and Septarian would be more telling of transformation, but the crystals are still telling me that we have more healing to do. We need to continue finding the balance. We need to cleanse our energy and chakras, and have some emotional flexibility. We need to stay strong and positive, so we can feel the joy, and attract abundance and good luck. Let’s see which card will come for today. 


The card for today is light. “See the light within yourself and everyone else.” This is another reminder to focus on the positive. Everything is not all bad, so choose to see the beauty and focus on the light. No matter how rough things have been, or how tough life has been lately, there is always plenty to be grateful for. I feel this card also applies to our dreams. Anyone out there who has been having intense dreams is in need of protection. Ask the Angels to surround you in white light and protect you during your dream time. Visualize your body surrounded in white light, and feel how positive and protected you feel. The energy has been intense lately and after a couple nights of intense dreams, I had to get serious about doing my protection visualizations before bed. It truly does help. I feel like we all are experiencing harsh energies lately, and we are in need to extra protection. Focus on positive energy, and living in the light. There is purity inside of all of us. Try to choose to be a good person in every moment, and you will reap many rewards. This is how we truly effect positive change in the world, by changing ourselves and consciously choosing the light… especially when it’s easier to succumb to the darkness. This is how we gain strength and spiritual enlightenment.

Light – Everyone has a beautiful light within them, no matter what they look like or how they act. This light is pure. The more you focus on the light within others, the more you can help them be healthy and happy. You can also protect your loved ones, yourself, and your belongings by imagining them surrounded by light. This card may mean that you or someone you love is in a situation with harsh energy right now, and they need extra spiritual protection. Imagine them in an eggshell covering of light in your favourite colour. Or choose one of these: white light to protect, green light to heal, and purple light for a better night’s sleep. As you focus on seeing and feeling the light within yourself and everyone, you’ll notice a positive change in your life. For example, people will treat you better, your family members will seem happier, and you’ll sleep better at night.
