Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of June 11, 2017

Oh my gosh you guys! I’m so sorry I’ve been on a hiatus again.. for over a month! It’s now been one year since my son was diagnosed with Leukemia, he was 3 at the time. I just happened to be organizing pictures from my cell phone, and it was like re-living those days. We are still living those days, although things are going well and we get are getting through this thing. I have been feeling so overwhelmed with how far we’ve come, and how far there is yet to go. I guess I was feeling a little overwhelmed with life in general. Just the everyday mom duties were taking a toll, and I was feeling uninspired and run down. I just knew in my heart is was ok to take a break. I know nobody probably cares anyway!! I didn’t know how long I needed, but I knew I would be back when I was ready. Let me tell you, it’s been a slow process getting this reading done. The energy is still a bit heavy. I have been learning a lot lately, I have been taking a Certified Mediumship Course with Carmel Baird, and I think my mind and body just needed time to integrate everything I’ve been learning. It’s been a lot. The astrology readings I’ve seen lately go along with this energy, so I’m just trying to accept it how it is and try to nurture myself (I wrote this before doing my reading… nurture is definitely a key word this week!). So thank you for your understanding! Thank you for being here to read my blog! I truly appreciate it!! Let see what the message is for the week. 


The crystals I am working with for the week are Tree Jasper, Lava Rock, 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. 


Tree Jasper – The “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. Used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying, it is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. Balances the physical, mental and emotional bodies. It is a stone of strength, courage and determination. Jasper stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. It can really assist people who need more focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 


Lava Rock – Grounds and calms the emotions. A stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. Lava stones are good for stabilizing and grounding because of the strong connection to the Earth and it’s creation within the centre of Earth. In folk remedies, it was given to soldiers to help them remain calm during battle. A stone of courage and gives people stability as they go through changes in their lives. When a person is drawn to lava rock it might be because they need the fire or energy in their life.


Rainbow Moonstone – Has a gentle, calming energy. It helps to strengthen intuition and psychic perception, and enhances creativity, compassion, endurance and inner confidence. It is a stone that 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. Rainbow Moonstone encourages introspection, yielding easier decision making. It also enhances one’s emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression. This is enhanced by Rainbow Moonstone’s ability to open one up to increased synchronicity that we often cannot see due to being wrapped up in our daily routines. Rainbow Moonstone can also offer increased patience and allowing, so those newly found synchronicities can flow into our lives unimpeded. A stone of intuition and insight, Moonstone helps us to connect to all the different cycles we experience in life. Moonstone helps balance the emotional body, especially any aggressive tendencies. Many people find moonstone to be very soothing and use it to help relieve stress.

The crystals are telling me we’ve been a bit stressed out.. We need to cool it and calm down a bit! We need to ground and nurture ourselves. We are working and pushing so hard, there’s a lack of balance. What we need to do is find our calm. Our inner zen. Our place where we can just let life and inspiration flow. We need to spend more time nurturing our creativity. That’s how the heart expresses itself and releases energy. There is a lot of Earth energies within the crystals too, so we need to be nurtured by the Earth, and in turn be inspired to create. Relax a bit. Stop and smell the flowers. Feel the breeze on your face. Don’t be so wrapped up in life that you miss the synchronicities, because they will be there! Watch for the Earth signs, the animal signs, the songs, the things that mean something to you. I promise there is a deeper meaning, and all you have to do is be open, notice, and appreciate the signs. We are changing and growing and birthing new ideas, and that can always be scary and stressful. Find ways to get creative and release that stress, and share your creations with world! Let’s see which cards are chosen for this week.


The cards confirm that we are in a period of transforming and growing, shapeshifting. Every moment we move, learn and grow. Try not to worry when things get tough, because just like the clouds, things will continue to shift. I love that there was the Moonstone crystal and a Moon card! The New Moon card show us there is so much beauty and promise on the horizon. Just try to relax and enjoy the view! We don’t need to be so angry and worked up all the time. We can calmly speak up and express ourselves. We can make our boundaries clear with those around us who push us and try to take advantage of us. Do not internalize this anymore. Speak up for yourself. Take your power back. If we don’t speak up for ourselves, who will? How will people know how to treat us or what to expect from us? Are you just going to keep letting life and other people take control? Or are you going to take your power back, and do what it takes for you to be whole, and happy? If you don’t ask, nobody will ever answer you. Although this week is still a bit rocky, things are shifting, and there is beauty and promise of new beginnings on the horizon. Just try to stay calm and let the dark clouds dissipate, and stay in your power by being true to you. 


Clouds (Shapeshifting) – When tiny droplets of water or frozen crystals are surrounded by billions of other droplets or crystals, a cloud is formed. Each of these tiny droplets diffuse and scatter light so that the tops of the clouds are white then fade to gray towards the base. The nature of cloud formations affects our mood as well as the temperature on the ground and in the air. Their shape, movement, and colouration tell us what weather to expect in the near future, and they nourish our visual hunger during breathtaking sunrises and sunsets. Most of us have had an opportunity at one time or another to notice the shapes and forms clouds take as a drift gently or boldly across the sky, constantly shifting and changing, adjusting themselves to the requirements of their nature. When we take time to simply observe, we can see the cloud people – images that are an elegant collaboration between nature and our imagination. In both subtle and more dramatic ways, you can shape shift your choice of clothing, hairstyle, adornments, and even mannerisms (such as facial expression, gestures, and the way you walk). By adjusting these along with your internal attitude, you can actually display different personas. When you experiment with these variations of self-expression that are not how you ordinarily present your self, others will react to you, depending on the degree in which your persona contrast with the one they are most for familiar with. Be like the clouds as you try out different forms, stretching your limits at times, willing to move and adjust as necessary. Lift your head up, square your shoulders, and stand tall such that your chest and heart open to the world, and note how this feels. You may feel vulnerable at first, but stay with it. Then let your shoulders fall forward slightly, pull your chest inward an inch or two, and let your head drop a little, observe how this feels. Experiment with contracting your aura, (your energy field), then expand it as far as you comfortably can. By this kind of shape shifting you can consciously choose your expression into the world. Just remember who you are at the core.


New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with a tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what is to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtain of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch and project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea. A promise has two meanings: It can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can apply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your attention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.


Polar Bear – When you express yourself from your heart AND from a place of power, it’s an unbeatable combination. You don’t need to growl or bully, nor do you need to fade into the background and deny yourself the opportunity to directly affect the situation. By showing up and being completely present, even when you’re simply listening, you’re a force to be reckoned with. Ask for what you want, and see what happens. Don’t get worked up about how it turns out. You may or may not get what you want, but at least your chances are much better if you ask. As for setting boundaries with others (such as saying no to request or demand) when you do so, they may respect those boundaries or try to test them. If they do test the limits you’ve set, stand your ground, be clear, and don’t apologize. Approach the situation with the purity and innocence of a child and the focussed intensity of a true warrior – one who doesn’t speak or act from anger, but from a place of truth and dignity. Know that when you do so, you’ll have nothing to fear. Associations: Fearlessness; Purity; Leadership; Powerful; Provider; Self-control; Strength; Wisdom; Nobility; Conservation; Intensity; Playfulness; Adaptability

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Lava Rock 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. 


Bloodstone – Centering and grounding. Increases adaptability and organization. Lessens confusion, stress, and anxiety. A stone of courage. Brings renewal by releasing blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. It enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including abundance, success and prosperity.


Lava Rock – Embraces Fire and Earth Energy. When a person is drawn to lava rock it might be because they need the fire or energy in their life. They can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to “root” scattered energy, find focus and bring balance to our center by embracing practicality. They encourage stimulation. This stone has the nurturing power of Mother Earth. Considered a fiery fertility stone. In Feng Shui, Black lava is used in the area of Career and Life Path as well as the Helpful People and Travel areas.


Aragonite – Their vibration encourages conservation and caring for the earth. Helps the earth. They are said to clear blocked ley lines and aid geopathic stress. Assists healing and balancing of the emotional body, and help you to overcome stress and anxiety. They send light out in a variety of different directions, to create an outcome of heightened light and energy in their surroundings. They relieve anger and resentment, and they are known to help you if you have anxiety, stress or other negative emotional feelings. Increases energy. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. 

When I drew these stones, I knew they were very transformational, and that we are in a strong period of transformation. The Lava Rock starts as a fluid fire, and hardens into a beautiful healing rock. The crystals are telling me that we are struggling through this transformation. One big reason why, is what we have done to Mother Earth. She is struggling too. It is like, how can you expect your heart to function normally if you are neglecting and ruining your body’s health? We are ruining our planet, and we expect that not to affect us, when we are growths of this planet. Imagine how much potential we could have if we had a fertile, healthy environment to grow and thrive in. If things around us aren’t healthy, the things we consume, the things we breath.. it’s hard for us to be healthy. Consumerism is quickly draining this planet of her precious resources. We are tainting the waters, wasting our food and taking other species down for temporary gain. Not only that, we are hurting ourselves and inviting disease. We need to put energy into loving our planet, like we should be loving ourselves. We need to clean it, and make more sustainable choices. I know people think this concept is so “left wing”, but honestly, it’s just the straight-out truth. We need to do it and we need to get doing it now. We need to avoid toxins. We need to go back to a more simple and natural way of life. We need to embody those very ideals that we want to see reflected around us. If we want to see beauty, happiness and adventure in our life, then we need to find those things inside us and reflect them to the outer world. Show the Earth you will help care for her beauty. Be proud of yourself and be confident and bold. Choose to be happy every moment you can. Take those adventures and grow your soul. It’s a reciprocal relationship, what you get is what you give, so be generous. I am going to use the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck by Stephen Farmer, so let’s see which cards want to go along with this message. 


The winter solstice really reminds me of how our winter is going… it’s never ending! This card is a sign that it’s ok to slow down. That we need to slow down. We need to reflect on where we have been and where we are going. We need to integrate the lessons we have learned. We need to take time to consider what our next goals in life are. If you have been feeling stuck or blocked lately, know that it is ok and that the light will return. We need to realize that the fears we have are illusionary, and find ways to break through them. There is so much promise on the horizon, and we need to breach the water and show up for it when the time comes. We are moving from a phase where we stayed inside of ourselves, but we are preparing to put ourselves out there in a big way, most likely in your career and life purpose. Take time to reflect on your life, on how you could care for yourself better, on how you can love a little more. Make small choices to be more generous to others, to yourself, to the Earth. By loving yourself, you give yourself the confidence you need to come out, to show yourself, and to put on a beautiful display of talent. You have so much inside of you waiting to be explored and discovered. One way you can do this is by having adventures. By exploring the world around you, you somehow explore your inner world… the reciprocal relationship. There is so much beauty on the horizon… this could not be a more gorgeous sunset with the new moon hanging so delicately in the sky. There is so much to look forward to. The couple is embracing each other knowing that everything is going to be great, and all they have to do is be in the moment, appreciate life and be happy. 


Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but 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 had passed, the season that it, 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 judgements, 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 of 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 Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 


Whale (Breach) – This powerful creature of the ocean takes a few great sweeps with his fins and propels himself briefly out of the waters where he spends the majority of his life. He’s taking a break from the ordinary Earth element in which he lives to exist even for a few moments in the realm of blue skies and sun, having broken through the skin of the ocean in a magnificent display of fullness and strength. All baleen whales breach, but none more spectacularly than the humpbacks, considered the acrobats of this family. They arch, stretch, and twist their bodies even as they approach the surface of the water, in what may be an ancient mating ritual, a form of communication, or even a way to remove parasites. In this image, the humpback whale that has burst out of the ocean expresses an almost palpable feeling of release and joy. Often when we manage to change our environment – to break through illusionary blockages – we experience an intense feeling of relief and can let go of any previously held fears and assumptions of what would happen once we did overcome that barrier, whether it’s material, environmental or mental. Simply getting away from the trance of technology for a few hours and spending time in nature is a breach from the trappings of civilization that can suffocate and prevent us from connecting to earth. It is time to take a break! Not just a coffee break, but a respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. That trip you wanted to take? Go for it. Tired of being indoors? Make a point to go outside. You have become so attached to your surroundings that you have created within them an illusion of safety, yet it is not these things that make you feel safe. Rather, the familiarity you have imbued in your surroundings have generated this false sense of security. Taking time away from the familiar is literally about changing your external environment in a significant way, such as doing something you have always wanted to experience. Another perspective is breaking through the barrier of the beliefs that have constricted you in any way from who you truly are. This is your opportunity to do some intentional breaching of these thought patterns, which will open you to different worlds and perspectives. 


New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with its tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, named after the Roman Goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what is to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtain of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch a project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put the action into what’s required to fully realize this idea. A promise has two meanings: it can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can imply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your intention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.

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 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Aquamarine and Tree Jasper. 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. 


Bloodstone – Used to centre and ground. Helps to stay calm. Increases adaptability and organization. Heals stress and anxiety. A stone of courage. Releases blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. Enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including bringing abundance, success and prosperity.


Aquamarine – A stone of courage and fortitude that can bring great power. Assists with quick intellectual response. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love. Shields the aura, and bring Angels for their guidance and protection. An excellent crystal for meditation. Dispels anger and fear. Assists with calming communication issues. A wonderful good luck stone. 


Tree Jasper – Known as the “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. It is used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying. It is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. It balances and aligns the physical, mental and emotional bodies. A stone of strength, courage and determination. Stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. Helps with focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 

The first thing I noticed about the crystals is that they represent Earth, Water and Blood. Very elemental energy, very symbiotic. Times may be stressful, but what’s called for now is courage and calm. It can be easy to be wrapped up in all that is going wrong, but the crystals not only are here to help us with solutions, they are also reminding us of the positive energy that comes on the other end. The abundance, the success, the luck, the power, the peace, the tranquility, the prosperity… it’s all there and it’s coming. It’s all symbiotic. Life is symbiotic. There has to be bad with the good, that’s just how it is. Get creative with solutions. Get organized. Being organized can relieve stress and anxiety. Find ways to be calm. Be adaptable. Most of all, have courage and keep moving forward in the most balanced way you possibly can. The crystals are sending you healing. You can and you will get through this period of stress, and before you know it, things are going to be be ridiculously amazing. Let’s see which cards get drawn for this week. 


The cards are just perfect. It looks like we are going through some changes in our life, maybe work related. You may be stressed out, overwhelmed or feeling like you are unsure of yourself. Just keep working and practicing. Practice makes perfect and that’s how you master a skill. You are on this path that leads to an abundant future, so don’t let the fear and stress overcome you now. Do not give up. Have courage and push through, keep practicing. Definitely Yes is a sign of everything positive that is coming in the future. It’s that confirmation that Yes, this is worth working towards and it will pay off! Believe in yourself. You are more than worthy, you are as talented as anyone else on this planet, and you can do this. Think as positively as possible! It can only help. Stressing out causes serious physical effects, and drains your energy. When you feel the stress coming on, allow yourself to feel it. It’s not going to magically go away. Just don’t allow it to bring you down. Be adaptable. When you say to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I’m feeling so stressed out and overwhelmed…” recognize that thought. Do something to care for it and turn it around. Take a time out and watch some funny videos, listen to a meditation, have a bath, get a reiki or energy healing treatment, dance, sing… do something to turn your mindset around. Gratitude exercises work well to remind yourself all you have to be thankful for. Think positive and act positive. You will get over it so much faster! The more you do it, the more it becomes a habit. Soon you will quickly notice whenever something isn’t positive! Good things are coming, positivity is the lesson and it is key here! We don’t have to be perfect by any means, there always has to be the symbiotic positive and negative. There are always times that are going to be hard. Just don’t stay there. Have courage and get back up again. Practice some more. Choose to see the beauty. Take good loving care of yourself. You truly are worth it, and wonderful things are to come if you can have courage. Practice is one way to make your dreams come true! 

Practice – Do you want to know why some people are really good at sports, music or art? They practice these skills a lot! This card is a sign that you need to practice a skill that’s important to you so that you can be really good at it. As you practice, some days you’ll feel stronger than others, yet you’ll notice that your skills improve the more you use them. So have patience with yourself and your teachers. It may take time to learn how to do something in the best way. Practice really is the best way to improve your skills. As you practice, you’ll learn new ways and methods. You’ll also enjoy yourself more as you get better and better at your new skills. So whether your dream is to paint, write, dance, sing or do crafts, practice is one way to make your dreams come true. 

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided that you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your own desires more quickly by paying attention to thoughts, feelings, words, or visions that repeat themselves to you. When this inner guidance asks you to take positive action, it’s important for you to do so. For instance, if you have a strong feeling to call a certain person, then make that call. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive and healthy effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts or worries, and to feel secure that everything is positive. Your desires are going to happen, and probably in better-than-expected ways. Imagine that your dream has already come true, using your inner vision and your feelings as you do so. You just need to stay filled with faith and hope, and take action when your guided. 

Believe in Yourself – This card asks you to hold positive thoughts and feelings about yourself. If there’s something you need or want, then hold a vision of yourself doing well. Only think positive thoughts about yourself, such as “I can do it” and “I am good at this”. The more you believe in yourself, the better everything will go. If you expect success, you’ll have good results. But if you worry about failing, you won’t enjoy your experiences. You can enjoy life more if you believe in yourself. If someone else tells you that you won’t succeed, then picture a big “X” through their words to cancel them. Don’t let someone else’s words take away your belief! Instead, act in a way that makes them change their mind and see what you can really do. Belief means making a decision such as “Yes I can do this!” When you clearly decide to do it, instead of just trying, you approach the situation with confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing something new. What matters is that you believe that you can do it. Each time you do something new, you learn and grow. And you’ll thank yourself for learning that you can do anything you truly believe you can do.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of January 15, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Angel Aura Quartz, Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz and Rhodochrosite. 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. 


Angel Aura Quartz – A stone of high spiritual energy. It is said that it is very helpful to the aura which it can protect, balance, and bring energetic health. It is said to help with Angelic communication and communicating with Higher Self and inner wisdom. It is used to help access Akashic records and past life recall. It is said to bring peace and tranquility because of the angelic protection it brings. Physically, it is helpful for general health, vitality, and miraculous cure of illness. 


Rose Quartz – Often called the “Love Stone.” A stone of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. Enhances every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. Bringing love in to life and daily situations not only brings inner warmth, but it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty, in oneself and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination – art, music and the written word. Rose quartz is a very happy stone. Rose quartz is used to raise self-esteem and gives a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy. It is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others. Physically, Rose Quartz is a beautification stone. It is helpful to clear the skin, reduce wrinkles and promote a soft complexion. Rose Quartz stimulates the proper functioning of the heart and circulatory system. It aids in relieving tension and stress. It is especially supportive of the female reproductive system. It assists in alleviating sexual difficulties, post-partum depression, and is thought to help mothers heal after complicated births. 


Clear Quartz – A power stone. It has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. Due to its ability to balance, quartz is excellent for harmonizing and balancing one’s environment. Quartz is also good for energizing other crystals. Quartz is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality and wisdom. It can also help particularly with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Physically, it protects from negative energy. It is a very good stone for astral travel, manifestation, scrying, channeling, dream recall and dream work. Quartz is a Master Healer stone. It is an excellent all purpose crystal healer stone. It is said to amplify healing energy and is used to perform diagnostic healing. It is said to draw out pain. Quartz is used in crystal healing to strengthen all body systems. Quartz is reputed to be particularly effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, bone injuries, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, intestinal troubles. 


Rhodochrosite – Rhodochrosite is a self-confidence booster. It brings a sense of realistic balance to life. It is also used to help cope with problems in life in a graceful, balanced manner without avoidance or denial. Eases issues caused by past lives. It is used to elevate the mind to a higher plane in meditation and energy work. Rhodochrosite balances and enhances love on all levels. It is also said to be a stone of freedom because of this helping to balance inner conflicts. This can bring a deep sense of happiness and relief from ongoing stress. Physically, it has been considered good for the digestion, the heart, the kidneys, spleen, pancreas, the pulse rate, and the thyroid. It is also used for stress related illness by transforming the energy of the illness with a balanced love of self and the universe.  

The message I am getting from the crystals is one of balance and love. Balance is a quality of every single crystal. It seems like we are giving too much away, and we need to make ourselves more of a priority. We have talents and love to give to the universe, and we can’t do that if we are exhausting and stressing ourselves out daily doing everything for everyone else. I know as a mom, the days to fly by, and it’s easy to give up on the things we love. We need to find the balance in our life so that we can be happy. We need to find the time to express and nurture ourselves, because we have so much to give. We deserve to be happy. You are worthy of investing in yourself. You have beautiful talents and love to share with the world. Let’s see what the cards have to say for the week. 


The cards are telling me that things may have been tough lately. There have been some inner struggles surrounding self-worth. We may be reliving past hurts that affected us in ways we are still processing. I can be a people pleaser, and when the giving/receiving energy is out of balance, it can amplify feelings of resentment and stress. We can find the balance we seek by accepting and making peace with the past. Forgive yourself. Forgive everyone else too. What’s done is done and everyone makes mistakes. That’s how we learn and grow. Let it all go. Start forward on a new path of positivity and love. Accept yourself for the beautiful ever changing spiritual being you are. Step in to the person you want to be, and exude the energy you want to attract in your life. Step into your power and accept the love you deserve. Show yourself love and know you are worth it. Radiate love, and it will come back to you. You have so much wisdom to share, not only from past experiences that you have learned from, but from experiences you are going through presently or have yet to go through. Show yourself love so you can learn and show others the way. Show them the way to happiness. Show them the way to freedom. You are on your way, all you need is love. I am sending so much of it out to you today, and so are the crystals. The energy is amplified by the Clear Quartz crystal. Lots and lots of beautiful love. 💗💝💖💓


Acceptance – You are built to question everything as part of your mission of making healthful changes to this planet. However, this characteristic may cause you to reject a part of your life that’s necessary in order for you to get to the next step. This card is a message for you to search through your life and determine if there is anything (or anyone) you are rejecting. Accepting your life completely is the best thing you can do for yourself right now. While this may not be easy or even seem right, know that you simply cannot change everything you do not like, and certain things must be tolerated in this lifetime. Ask the Angels to bring you strength and comfort to make letting go and accepting easier. 


Apologize – This card asks you to take the high road in this situation and apologize to either the people involved or yourself for things that have been bothering you. Your honesty and fiery nature may inadvertently lead you to say things that might hurt others’ feelings. Saying that you’re sorry is one of the best ways to let the pressure off and defuse tension. Even if you perceive that you’ve done nothing wrong, the Angels ask you to apologize in general for any disappointment or frustration that arose. Be sure to have an honest discussion with yourself or the other person about the underlying feelings that led to the conflict. The Angels certainly don’t want you to cover up your true emotions! Know that while saying sorry may not be easy or even seem fair, in this situation it’s being asked of you because it serves a higher purpose. This is a lesson for you to put aside your pride and do something for the greater good. 


Share Your Wisdom – Within you is ancient and powerful wisdom about the true rules of right and wrong. You came to this planet to make big changes, and you’re not alone in this mission. As you learn more about the changes that should be made to society, this card guides you to share this awareness with like-minded others. The more people who know their true purpose (because people like you awaken them to it), the more effective this collective mission will be.

Daily Angel Card Reading – November 29, 2016


The crystals I am working with for today are Jasper Mookaite, Leopard Skin Jasper, Dalmatian Jasper. 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. 


Jasper Mookaite – Use to connect with elemental Earth powers for increasing self-confidence, self-worth, and to realize one’s full potential. An ideal tool for overcoming procrastination by revealing the true reason for avoiding certain tasks and bringing the motivation needed to resolve the issue. Its constant energy keeps one focused and grounded while soothing the mind and quieting distracting thoughts. It is great for focusing on a specific goal or for a motivational boost in the workplace. It emanates the energy of animal knowing, or instinct, and may be used to amplify one’s own instincts when making decisions.


Leopard Skin Jasper – Is a stone of shamanic journeying. It also aids in service to others. It helps discover and connect with one’s animal totems or “power” animals. It makes it easier for one to take proper responsibility. It is said to bring energies of success in work or business. Helps with creative visualization. As with all jaspers, this is a protective stone.


Dalmatian Jasper – Is a stone that lessens or removes disillusionment. It helps one to see their strengths and weaknesses, and encourages grounding both with the Earth and in reality. It increases loyalty and is beneficial for long term relationships. It brings a sense of fun to one’s life. It is a stone of protection from nightmares, depression, and negative thinking. It is also said to be particularly beneficial for healing people who have trouble relaxing and having fun. 

The crystals have been suggesting we are in need of protection lately. I was guided to use 3 types of Jasper today, and Jasper are stones of protection. There has been a lot of fear, worry, depression, negative thinking and nightmares lately. I know.. I have been experiencing all of the above, very much so the last couple days. I also see discussions surrounding these feelings within my spiritual groups, so I know it’s an energy we are all experiencing in our own ways. I know for sure that one of the reasons I have felt so down is because I lack proper balance in my life when it comes to having fun. I am on duty 24/7 and even when I have a few mins, I’m so tired, I have given up even trying to have fun. When you live in an unbalanced state, negativity and physical issues are bound to occur. I’m currently experiencing back spasms, and I know this is a physical manifestation because I don’t ask for help or delegate enough. It is the universes way of saying, I’ll make you stop going and make you have to ask for help. When you are unbalanced, it also affects your relationships with others. Today, we need to take proper responsibility for our lives, and our happiness. I see this applying to work too, we may need a motivational boost. We may need to set some boundaries with those around us. Try to have some fun in your work day and at home later. Try to find some balance. Believe me, I’m the worst for this, it goes in one ear and out the other, I think it’s a mom thing. I guess that’s why I need to keep hearing it and working on this. With the Leopard Skin Jasper and it’s ability to connect us with our power animals, I think I will use the Messages From Your Animal Spirit Guides Oracle Cards by Steven Farmer. Let’s see which card is for today.


The card for today is Polar Bear. Again, this is symbolizing us taking responsibility for ourselves and speaking our truth, with respect. Show up, be present and ask for what you want. Don’t get upset over the outcome, even if things don’t work out how you would want, you are still expressing your needs and making them known. I feel like today is another struggle for balance. We want to have certain things in life, but yet someone else has power to help facilitate our needs, or not. I feel like by the end of the day, things will be smoothed over and there will be some fun to be had… but likely there will be some type of conversation or struggle before things work themselves out. Dalmatian Jasper will help you see things clearly, ground you, and protect you. Leopard Skin Jasper will help you accept responsibility. The Jasper Mookaite will remind you of your self-worth and help you with decision making. Mookaite activates the Solar Plexus Chakra, the seat of will and personal power, therefore assisting you to express yourself from your heart and from a place of power. Remember that things will work themselves out, and that you will get passed this, so maybe knowing that, it can help you avoid over-reacting, and calmly assert your needs. 

Polar Bear – When you express yourself from your heart and from a place of power, it’s an unbeatable combination. You don’t need to growl or bully, nor do you need to fade into the background and deny yourself the opportunity to directly affect the situation. By showing up and being completely present, even when your simply listening, you’re a force to be reckoned with. Ask for what you want, and see what happens. Don’t get worked up about how it turns out. You may or may not get what you want, but at least your chances are much better if you ask. As for setting boundaries with others, such as saying no to requests and demands, when you do so, they may respect those boundaries or try to test them. If they do test the limits you’ve set, stand your ground and be clear. Approach the situation with the purity and innocence of a child and the focused intensity of a true warrior – one who doesn’t speak or act from anger, but from a place of truth and dignity. Know that when you do so, you’ll have nothing to fear. Associations: fearlessness, purity, leadership, powerful, provider, self-control, strength, wisdom, nobility, conversation, intensity, playfulness, adaptability

Angel Card Reading – Week of May 1, 2016


I chose the following crystals this week, which happened to be Earthy tones, that go right along with the Earth Magic deck I am going to use today. Starting from left to right:

-Bloodstone for circulatory health, and to keep our blood flowing. It helps to improve determination and personal power.

-Bronzite is a protective, grounding mineral that is used to restore harmony and self confidence in situations where you feel overwhelmed or powerless.

-Banded Agate is a healing stone for body, mind and spirit. It can increase concentration, honesty and memory. Banded Agate also protects the wearer from psychic attack, thereby preventing negative energy from harming you.

-Smoky Quartz is a grounding stone that transmutes negative energies and facilitates your ability to get things done in the practical world. Alleviates depression.

-Carnelian stimulates ambition and drive, so it will aid you in manifesting what you require to move onto your desired path forward in life. 

-Desert Rose is very gentle and it teaches one that life is worth all of its ups and downs. 

-Malachite for luck, prosperity and abundance! 

-Crazy Lace Agate promotes inner stability, composure, and maturity. Its warm, protective properties encourage security and self-confidence. 


If you read my last blog post, you will see I have been feeling drained lately, depleted and sick. Lotus Flower is the perfect card, that reassures me this time of rest and retreat was part of my growth.. Part of a bigger picture. Lotus flower tells me we are all going through something.. We are going through these things because we are unfolding, learning lessons and becoming a better people every day. The Full Moon card shows me we will complete this phase of unfoldment, and this energy of feeling down, stuck or struggling, will soon come to completion. We will have a new fresh perspective in our lives, and may see things change by the end of this week. I feel like we will have better insight into the direction we are moving, and into the people we want to become. I have been feeling quite stuck again lately, like I’m at a standstill again. Like I have had zero time for me (or my spiritual work!), barely time to rest before its on to the next duty. I know, poor me right! Perspective is confirming exactly what I already know.. My point of view is way off. I have a beautiful life, a beautiful home, beautiful gifts, a beautiful family… I really am so blessed. I have been so focused on what I am lacking, what I am not receiving, what I am unhappy with, that I am continually pushing away happiness. Choosing perfection over living in the now, and it’s only perceived perfection. Nothing is ever really perfect. Who cares that my house is always clean, when I have no time for anyone to come over and actually spend time with me! I will be thankful to see this week through, and see what pushes me to view my life from a deeper, fresher perspective. I am sincerely looking forward to it! Doreen Virtue’s reading for this week referenced signs, so watch out for signs and symbols from spirit all week! You’ll know them when you see them! Have a great week of growth and unfoldment! 


Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flower sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun invites it upward toward the light. At night the flower sinks below the surface, only to rise with daylight. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently folds in on itself for a proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary for growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment that day. Your spiritual unfoldment is occurring at all times, wether or not you are aware of it. Like the lotus, your soul is always reaching for the light to fulfill its karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot be truly coerced or halted. It has an intimate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to you. You do not need to strive for spiritual growth, or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself. Just be your beautiful self, and love yourself and the world around you as much as you can. 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.

Full Moon (Completion) – Every 29.5 days Grandmother Moon shines bright and full in the sky, illuminating the landscape with her muted brilliance, casting a delicate canopy over the sky and the physical features of Earth. Having gradually etched her way over the last two weeks to fullness, she now stands like a guiding beacon in the night. She has completed this round of her perpetual and periodic monthly journey, and will now start her slow but steady retreat into shadow. In this card, we see the grandeur of the moon at its peak, blazing brightly and creating a silhouette of a tree. This beautiful orb reminds us that all cycles have their time of completion and fulfillment, one that will inevitably be followed by a decrease until yet another cycle is initiated. You can now take pleasure in knowing that whatever you have been working toward has now reached its culmination. It may have been a relatively brief cycle or a much more extensive one, yet regardless of the length of time you have arrived at the stage of completion. Let yourself feel the contentment and satisfaction of this accomplishment. It is like when you take a deep breath and reach the point where your lungs are pleasantly full and your body is ready to release that breath. It is important not only to enjoy this completion but also to let go and allow yourself to relax afterwards, just like exhaling slowly and consciously. People are much too eager to rush to the next item on the agenda without giving proper time and space to appreciating and honouring the natural cycle of release that follows a point of resolution. Give yourself the time to relax and rest before tackling spirits next assignment.

Milky Way (Perspective) – The Milky Way is said to be one of billions of galaxies in the observable universe. It contains between 200 to 400 billion stars, the one most familiar to us being the sun. The oldest star in our galaxy is 13.2 billion years old – said to be nearly as old as the universe itself – and the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old. Distances are measured in light years, and the Milky Way galaxy is believed to be 100,000 light years in diameter. The enormity and vastness stagger the mind and challenge the imagination, yet it also gives us some notion of where we fit in all this. Considered from this perspective, our usual frame of reference is put to the task. We’re faced with a choice of abandoning our myopic vision in favour for seeing and accepting the bigger picture, or we can just allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by a sense of smallness and helplessness. Yet know that we are composed of material from those very stars that inhabit the Milky Way. Thus, we’re connected to Earth and the entire universe at all times, in life and death. You have lost your perspective, so it is time to step back, breathe, and allow yourself to detach in order to gather information from your senses and regain your perspective about this situation. Detachment does not mean you no longer care – it simply indicates that you are looking at things from a different point of view. It is an outlook that is not clouded by emotions, judgement, or attachment to outcome, but instead maintains a non-reactive awareness of these things. The Witness, that internal aspect of yourself that simply observes everything in your life, offers his or her eyes here. Through these lenses of pure awareness, you can examine all aspects of your experiences – physical, emotional, and mental – without denying anything. By doing so, you will come to understand a greater perspective than is typically justified by the ego, which allows you to see what is before you with clear vision and an open mind.
