Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of July 9, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Lapis Lazuli, Jet and Blue Kyanite. 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. 


Lapis Lazuli – Enhances wisdom, memory, intellect and good judgment. Encourages honesty. It is a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. It reveals inner truth, and promotes self-awareness. Helps to relieve suppressed issues. Opens to new ideas, dreams and visions. Lapis releases stress, allowing for peace and serenity. Expands awareness and enlightenment, enhancing dream work. 


Jet – A protection stone. Removes energetic attachments. Used for Spiritual advancements. Assists with manifestation of will and desires. Has a very calming energy, and heals grief. Eases anxiety and depression, and this brings about inner-growth and self-reliance. 


Blue Kyanite – A stone of channeling, altered states, vivid dreams, dream recall, and visualizations. It provides protection. It brings loyalty, honesty and tranquility, and diminishes anger and confusion. Kyanite can remove energy blockages.

This week’s reading definitely continues on from last week’s. We are slowly moving those a process of change, learning how to be more positive, peaceful and gratuitous. This is what I’m feeling from the crystals… I hope I can describe the feeling.. it’s like, we have so many things going on!! Emotional attachments, to people and the past. Suppressed issues we try not to think about, but that weigh us down when contrasting with the day to day events of our lives. We have energy blockages. We need more self-care and balance. We are anxious and depressed. We are overwhelmed. Things are flying all around us, including the days as they go by. It’s like, all this stress going on, and the crystals are like: Hush hush sweet child.. we are here to wash waves of healing over you, and help you to improve your situation and emotions, remind you of an alternate perspective, and also help you learn the lessons that go along with these life events. 😇 We are going to do a lot of releasing and processing during our dreams, and dreams are going to be very vivid and meaningful during this time. The crystals are sending us calming energy, to cool our anger and frustrations we have been experiencing. We have a lot of things to be released right now during this full moon energy, cords to cut, emotional wounds to heal, attachments to be released. It doesn’t need to be extravangant, just a conscious effort to let the crap go. Let it all go to make space for a new you! A you that has new dreams and desires to manifest! Let’s see what the cards say for the week! 


We have been pushing so hard! The Ladybug comes in to tell us to relax, be calm, and be genuinely open to receiving. The Universe isn’t going to reward you for being all wound up. Stretch yourself out. Breathe. Stop taking life too seriously. Just relax and allow the flow to happen naturally. When someone is there to lend a helping hand, or you are on the receiving end of a generous gift, be sure to graciously accept. This card really tells me, if we can release those attachments, cords, past issues, and truly be free to be happy and receive, the abundance will be astounding. It’s all there, ready and waiting for us… and patiently I might add! The Boar tells us, not all of it is going to be Ladybugs. Some of its gonna be challenging, but just handle your shit. Just do what you gotta do, and let things happen naturally. There is nothing you can’t handle, and you’ve literally handled everything thus far in your life. Just keep going!! A huge key to releasing our past issues and attachments is going to involve compassion and forgiveness. Forgive yourself for all the things you did that you wish you wouldn’t have. Have compassion for yourself knowing that you didn’t know any better at the time. Forgive those who’ve hurt you, and have compassion for them knowing they also didn’t know any better at the time. Have compassion for everyone and everything, as we are all struggling in the same boat. We are all trying to learn and find who we are. We all make mistakes and act in ways we shouldn’t. Have compassion for the people who have done you wrong, as I’m sure you’ve done wrong in your life as well. We will get through this much easier if we can work together like the bees. The less judgemental people there are, the better off we will be. Forgive and release, forgive and release. Just like the waves. Things are going to get better, I promise! Just make sure you do your part in keeping your energy positive! ✌️This is how we heal ourselves, and our world. 🌎 ❤️ 🙏 


Ladybug – This is an auspicious time for you, one that is extraordinarily powerful. You’ll find that everything goes very smoothly with little effort on your part. Your thoughts will be manifesting much more quickly, so be observant and careful about what you’re thinking. If you lapse into thinking about what you lack or what’s missing, remind yourself of all the things in your life – food, shelter, your loved ones, or even the gift of life itself – for which you’re grateful. Gratitude is the key to continually receiving good fortune, joy, and abundance. Be willing not only to ask for, but also to graciously receive and accept all that comes your way. So ask for whatever you want, then imagine already having that which you requested. Can you feel what it’s like when you think of having it already? Notice any conditions or habitual thought patterns that may interfere with your acceptance of what you’re asking for. If this happens, return your attention to thoughts of gratitude. In fact, express your thankfulness as if it has already manifested, and continue to monitor any thinking that would otherwise block you from receiving. If you ask for something and then negate it with insurmountable disbelief, the results you get will be the same as if you hadn’t asked. So ask… And then be willing to receive. Associations: Fertility; Renewal; Regeneration; Rebirth; Faith; Family; Mother Mary; Abundance; Hope; Meditation; Prayer; Delicateness; Joy; Fearlessness


Boar – 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 breath’s 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’ve emerged victorious – which means that you’ve 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 vanquish 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! Associations: Currents; Hospitality; Earthiness; Self-reliance; Protection; Prosperity; Organization; Fierceness; Uprooting; Cleanliness; Determination; Balance; Security; Tenacity


Honeybee – To reap all the sweetness that life has to offer, focus on compassion and forgiveness. Compassion means that you have heart felt empathy for the suffering and misfortune of others yet remain somewhat detached so that you don’t take on their sorrow and distress as your own. Forgiveness requires that you first acknowledge and accept responsibility for your judgments, rather than pretending they don’t exist or professing to always stay in a nonjudgmental attitude. The next step is to release those judgements. To do so, think of someone, past or present, with whom you have judgements or criticisms. Trust that the first person that comes to mind is the appropriate one to start with. Consider two or three specific criticisms that you have about this individual, preferably captured with one word, such as selfish or cold. Find a quiet place, go inside yourself, and look for that part of you that’s exactly like what you’re judging in the other person. It may be a very prominent heart of yourself or a rather small aspect. You may identify it by recalling times when you’ve behaved in ways that resemble what you’re criticizing. Once you discover that part of you, simply say to it: “I love you and I forgive you”. If necessary, repeat this two or three times and notice any emotions that come up. In the coming days, be aware of any feelings that arise that may be associated with this experience. Practice this at least once daily for the next few days, and watch what happens. Associations: Productivity; Community; Cooperation; Sweetness; Love; Compassion; Forgiveness; Rhythm; Awakening; Nature; Poetry; Mother Goddess; Royalty; Nutrition

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

Angel Card Reading – Week of March 5, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Ocean Jasper, Pyrite and Prasiolite. 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. 


Ocean Jasper – Very soothing and helps to love one’s self as well as others. It heals the emotions and brings peace of mind. It helps with acceptance of responsibility and increases patience. The patterns symbolize that we are all interconnected. A protective stone. Encourages a feeling of joy and elevated spirits. Helps you to release negative feelings, helps you if you need a lift. Helps you to enhance your personal power. Once you understand yourself better, this helps you to have greater self confidence, self esteem and self worth.


Pyrite – Enhances intelligence, mental stability, logic, analysis, creativity, memory, and psychic development. It can help you tap your own latent mental talents and abilities. Pyrite is a powerful protection stone, and is very grounding. Brings energies of good luck or good fortune.


Prasiolite – A stone of originality and courage. Fosters self-reliance. A prosperity stone, said to attract abundance. Clears negativity. It can help strengthen and express emotions as well as the mind and will. It is also said to be highly beneficial for prophesy.

Every week I always feel like the reading is aimed at me, so I guess it makes me feel better that I am not the only one going through this stuff. I guess it’s just life, and we really are all inter-connected. These crystals suggest we are feeling down, feeling negative and overwhelmed by life. Honestly… I’ve been feeling it. My 4 year old son is being treated for leukemia, and my 10 year old son has autism, so I have a lot of responsibility to take on. None the less, we are very blessed and life is good. I have been lucky enough to receive a scholarship with Carmel Baird to take a course in Mediumship. It is an exciting opportunity, but I was feeling overwhelmed today, feeling like I’m falling behind, and that I don’t have the time (or peace and quiet) to allow myself to be in the space I need to be to work on this. My moments of quiet are fleeting to say the least. I was feeling a little resentful today… and giving away my personal power! Whatever responsibilities are weighing you down, know that the crystals are protecting us and helping us clear this negative energy. We need to tap into our personal power, and the best way to do this is to lift our spirits and feel joy. Doing something today that makes you feel happy. Coincidentally, I was watching some Joel Osteen on TV this morning, and this was exactly his topic. That we weren’t meant to live life just living out our responsibilities from morning till night. We are here to be happy… to experience joy. We are no good to anyone if we are miserable. We need to love ourselves through these tough times, and find our own personal power. We need to accept responsibility for what we can control. We need to find and create joy all throughout our days. We need to have patience. Use your creativity to lift your energy to a state that is more positive. Prosperity, abundance, good luck and good fortune is in store for us, but we need to stay positive! Let’s see which cards go along with these crystals for this week. 


All my life, it has seemed like the people around me had a clear vision of what they wanted for their life, and I never really felt like I had that. Nothing felt right for me. Most of my old classmates are incredibly successful, and sometimes I’m left contemplating my self-worth and what my special talents and abilities are. It is hard these days with social media, and our constant comparison to how we feel other people live their lives. The crystals are helping us to tap into our special talents and abilities… and the best part? All we have to do to develop our life purpose is live in joy. Do what makes you happy, do what fulfills you, and your path will become clear. Focus on helping others find joy, and you will find that joy too. Everything that you are going through now you are learning from, and it relates to your purpose in life. Maybe work has been stressing you out, and you would way rather be doing something more rewarding that helps others. This may be a good time to do that more. Cupid is telling us that part of the joy we seek is found within the romance in our life, and within the love we give to ourselves and others. Cupid is awakening us to our love for life. We need to make clear and conscious decisions to choose joy and love. Let go of all the things that are bothering us, have forgiveness and patience, and accept love. Choose to be happy. Shake life up a bit. Most of the reason we feel down is because we have conditioned ourselves to feel this way. We have decided that because of the things that have gone on in the past, or how we compare ourselves to others, that we don’t deserve happiness or that someone else is to blame for what we are feeling. We have to let the past go and have forgiveness. I hold a lot of resentment in my life because of the past, and it is something I have to work on constantly. When I feel resentful, it’s easy to go back to those situations and remember all the reasons why I deserve to feel angry or resentful. The problem is that the only thing this does is hurt ourselves. It pushes people away when we wallow in the hurt or resentment. It lowers our vibrations. We have to make the conscious choice to choose happiness, and let the resentment go. It is ok to let go and have fun. Like Joel Osteen said this morning, you can be responsible and still have fun. We all deserve a little fun. Keep working on finding that balance in your day and in your life. Work on releasing those negative emotions and replacing them with happiness, and love. Let those toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Go find some joy right now! 


Life Purpose – This card comes as a reminder that you needn’t struggle to find your life purpose. Don’t worry about how to make good money in a meaningful career. Don’t concern yourself with quitting or starting jobs or professions. Instead, follow the path of your natural desires, talents, and passions with the full intention of bringing joy to yourself and others. Your life purpose doesn’t need to be defined or pinpointed. It’s a process, not a category. Additional meanings for this card: Give all worries about money or career to God and the Angels. You’re on the right path forward towards your life’s purpose. Focus on one step at a time with respect to your life’s purpose, and release fears about the future to your Angels. What you’re doing right now is part of your life’s purpose.


Cupid – This card comes to you because the Angels see your desire for romance. Instead of fixing the externals in your love life, they assist you internally. The Angels say that romance springs from falling in love with life itself. When you let the Angels awaken this love within you, you naturally attract and experience more romantic love in your relationships. Additional meanings for this card: Surround yourself with romantic beauty such as roses and candles. Give any emotional hurt to the Angels. Ask Archangel Michael to help you release any painful attachments to previous or current lovers. Clearly decide what you desire in your love life. Affirm “it is safe for me to love and be loved”.


Let Your Past Go – You received this card because your thoughts and feelings about the past are holding you back. Your 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’re 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 relationship with positive expectations. Avoid routines. Speak to a counsellor or support group. Forgive those who hurt you. Forgive yourself. The worst is now behind you. Keep your thoughts about the situation high and bright.

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.

Daily Angel Card Reading – December 3, 2016

The crystals I am working with for today are Garnet, Smoky Quartz and Hematite. 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. 


Garnet – A stone of regeneration and energizing. Boosts and revitalizes energy. A protective stone. Excellent for manifestation. It is used to ground one’s dreams in reality, bringing abundance, prosperity, and realization of those dreams. Builds one’s self-confidence, inspiration, and creativity. Considered a stone of increasing commitment, honesty, hope, and faith. It is a stone of positive thoughts which is said to relieve depression. 


Smoky Quartz – A protective and grounding stone. Removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms them to positive energy. 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. Assists with creativity. 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. Helpful for dealing with grief. 


Hematite – Helps absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. A protective stone and very grounding. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration. 

When I was choosing these crystals, I really thought they were very different, but in researching their properties it’s amazing to see how they carry such similar messages. The crystals are telling me that we are still in need of protection from stress, worry and depression. We need to continue working on turning our negative thoughts and actions into positive ones. We are manifesting at a very fast rate, especially with the new moon that just passed, and again, the crystals tell me that abundance and prosperity is right around the corner, but we need to keep positive. We need to hold on to faith and hope, and know in our heart that our dreams will come true. Anybody grieving today will benefit from the energy of the smoky Quartz. Let’s see which card will get drawn for today. 

Well, what is the best way to fight off stress and depression… Play! Have some fun! It’s the best way to feel good and stay positive. Yesterday, we were encouraged to get out of the house and have some fun. The message continues today. Yes, you probably have a lot of stuff you should be doing and working on. Try not to worry about that stuff. For today, just relax, have fun, laugh and enjoy your weekend. Lift your energy by allowing your inner child to have some fun and play. This is the way to finding balance in your life, so you can get back to your obligations feeling reenergized. When you are in a positive and happy space, you attract more of that in your life, and the card and crystals remind us that we can manifest much more quickly when living in a joyful state. We always worry about everyone else enjoying life and having fun, we need to remember that we are just as deserving as anyone else, and we deserve fun and happiness too. Let go of your obligations today and have some fun!

Play – The Angels see that you need to play, so they sent you this card. You’ve been working and worrying a lot lately, and your soul cries out for fun. Feelings of fatigue, irritability, or depression are additional signs that you’re overdue for some playtime. You don’t need to wait until you have a free moment, because you can inject fun into your day today. Simple pleasures, moments of silliness, laughing with a friend, or watching a funny movie are examples of ways to have fun that don’t require a lot of time or money. Fun and play are necessary parts of life for children and adults. These types of activities help us live healthier lives, and allow us to attain our desires more quickly. Fun is part of living a balanced life. Additional meanings for this card: Stop what you’re doing and go have fun right now. Release any guilt about having fun to the angels. You deserve happiness, pleasure, and enjoyment. Make sure that your recreational activities are purely fun and non-competitive.

This is exactly how I feel when I go to the dentist these days, something I hated before is now like a mini vacation, Lol. Frustration is an emotion I seem to be struggling with a lot lately. I find it hard to find time for myself and for stress relief techniques, heck, I feel like I am lucky to get through the week and keep up with just the regular things. Every now and then, I find a moment to do something that I am passionate about or that makes me feel good and relieves stress. Writing this blog right now after my children just went to bed, and before my boyfriend gets home from work, is one of those little things that bring me happiness and feels right, and lets me have a moment to myself to process my thoughts and feelings. I wanted to see what other people, and especially moms, had to say about their favorite things they look forward to, that bring them happiness and stress relief. Here are what some people said, and they are in no particular order:

1. Getting hair and/or nails done

2. Hot bubble bath – The Stress Relief Bath Soak Salts, especially the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent from Bath and Body Works are amazing and the best I have tried!! They will relax you! Also, I will never live without a Jacuzzi tub again.

4. Watching something funny – Funny videos online, Ellen, Americas Funniest Home Videos, Ridiculousness, anything that gets you chuckling.

6. Writing down your feelings and throwing them away/burning it.

7. Go for a drive – And rock out! Go find somewhere beautiful to take pictures or just to enjoy! A good suggestion was to take the kids out of the city and find some horses and cows for them to look at! Great idea Tonielle!!!

8. Get a coffee
