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 July 2, 2017

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


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


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


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

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


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


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


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


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

Read that last line one more time. Xoxo, Carrie

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of 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 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 March 12, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Smoky Quartz, Picture Jasper, Tigers Eye and Mookaite. 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. 


Smoky Quartz – A very protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It removes negativity and transforms it to positive. Enhances survival skills and helps one reach personal and business goals. Used to make wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Therefore, it brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It fosters cooperation in groups and supports their efforts energetically. It also assists in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life. Excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Enhances and encourages courage and inner strength. Smoky quartz is comforting and calming, and is considered a stone of serenity. It can be helpful in relieving grief.


Picture Jasper – The swirling patterns and banding that adorn Picture Jasper are said to be images from the past that Mother Earth is willing us to see. It shows hidden messages from the past as well as hidden thoughts, fears, and hopes. It gives us the chance to see the bigger picture and move forward with courage and confidence. Use this stone to begin a new business venture without the fear of failure. A stone of creative visualization, it can be an aide in bringing your goals and dreams into reality. 


Tigers Eye – A stone of protection that is also stabilizing and grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. It can also help one see clearly without illusion. 


Mookaite – Encourages the desire for new experiences and helps to keep a balance between external activities and the internal response. It imparts a deep calm while encouraging versatility. A stone of strength and decision making. It is said to shield the wearer from difficult situations. Helps us to assess our problems and make appropriate decisions.

We had a beautiful full moon last night! I can already feel we are on an upswing. Spring is coming! I feel like since the last full moon that things have been a little like a roller-coaster emotionally for me. I am glad I am feeling better today and feel like the energy is moving in a more positive direction. I made a huge decision to join Younique Products as an Independent Distributor (Don’t worry, I’m mostly mentioning this as it has to do with the reading! But if you wanna try this awesome makeup or pursue a great opportunity, join me here! https://youniqueproducts.com/carriegallop) I have been curious about the products for a long time, and have been putting off splurging on new makeup. With my son fighting cancer, I really needed to pursue an opportunity from home, so I can stay with him as long as possible. After talking to friends who were also holding off on trying Younique, I decided to take the plunge and make a go of it! A friend I know does it, and it has changed her life and her level of confidence. She is very inspiring and I know if she can do it, there is no reason I can’t! I am also going to getting back into doing Angel Card readings for others, so if your interested in purchasing a reading, let me know! These are big steps for me, as I always choose to stay in my comfort zone, to do what’s easy. Work for someone else and get the same pay check every week. Do what someone else tells me to do everyday. I want to change that, not only for me to be able to stay with my son, but to change the way I look at earning a living. I am worth so much more! I am so glad the crystals are here supporting these decisions, and telling of the success and abundance to come. I AM moving forward in my life with courage and confidence! I love my Smoky Quartz Point. For me, it is a Crystal that directs a ton of energy, and I have very intense and vivid dreams when I sleep with it beside my bed. Seeing all of its qualities today reminds me how much I love this crystal. It will help us transmute negative energy into positive, it’s going to comfort us and calm us, helps us attain our goals, and assist us to make all our wishes come true. This week, we are working, we are grinding, we are staying versatile and flexible. We are being strong. Things may not always be easy, but the mookaite will help us recognize problems and mitigate them. We are going to see clearly and move forward confidently. Again, we are reminded abundance, luck and prosperity is on the way! Keep a smile on your face knowing so much good stuff is coming in life!!! Let’s see what cards want to accompany this message. 


I was guided to choose 2 more traditional tarot cards and an Animal Spirit message for the week. To be honest, the Seagull Card scared me a little when I saw it, I even wanted to put it back!! After tuning into it, I realize it’s not forewarning us that we need healing, it’s telling us where we have been to get where we are now. We don’t have to be perfect to have come a long way! It’s telling me that we have been through the rough seas. We are now sitting on the shore, watching the waves calm down and being soothed to our soul. We are watching the seagulls fly free. We are truly healing, deep down in a place where we might not even be consciously aware of. I’m sure the full moon last night assisted with this too, bringing soothing waves of healing and release. The Mookaite Crystal and the Seagull feel very calm to me, like we are finding the calm within us and are able to handle whatever comes our way. We have learned so much from all the storms we have weathered. With all this new business energy, you can be assured things are still going to be coming your way. All you gotta do it deal with it! Don’t stress about it, just handle it. Keep moving forward as best as possible, creating better habits. Like the little old man that doesn’t let anything ruin his good mood, all day, even through the crappiest stuff, he still smiles and finds a reason to joke and laugh, because he’s alive, and life is beautiful, vibrant and colourful. Things don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful, to be appreciated. Life is too short not to appreciate it. If you feel the need to vent or express emotions, make sure to do so, but ensure it is with someone you can trust… the VII of Swords card is suggesting to be wary of who you rely on. It may be better to journal or release emotions when you are alone. When you are strong, and have faith, you know you are never truly alone. The crystals remind us that spirit is always there assisting and comforting you. You truly are strong all on your own, so know this and trust this. The Ace of Wands is perfect confirmation that now is the time to pursue career and business goals and to chase our dreams. Not only will this bring us success, but it can benefit and inspire those around us. The VII of Swords card is a representation of our fears. We are worried the swords are gonna come flyin’ at us. Putting yourself out there can be hard. It’s easier just to avoid everything, and let life pass us by. The truth is, you can’t lose what isn’t yours. Everything happens for a reason. Things that fall away from your life are just part of the natural process, part of a never ending cycle. Yeah, it may hurt… but it doesn’t define you. We let go of things to make way for new things. Face the swords, knowing they can’t hurt you. Even if other people let you down, you can’t be hurt any more than you allow yourself to. You have this strength!!! It’s all about how you choose to live. Have courage and face those swords. Pursue your dreams, handle your business, and your gonna find so much success and happiness! 


Ace of Wands – Now is the time for sending out resumes, starting a new enterprise, or beginning a journey. Your strength uplifts those who lack the resources to solve their problems alone. 


VII of Swords – Making plans becomes problematic. Friends let you down. Don’t rely too much on others. You can’t lose what’s not yours to begin with. Get everything in writing. 


Seagull – The emotional sea that’s hovering just below your consciousness is a well of feelings that needs to be acknowledged and expressed. Expressing emotions doesn’t mean indulging in them compulsively or creating drama around them. If there are tears, let them simply be tears and allow them to flow. Cry or laugh as much as you need to. Explore these feelings by sharing them with someone you trust, or write them in a journal, paying particular attention to the sensations in your body. These sensations are clues to the layers of emotions that are just below the surface of your awareness. By either talking or writing them down, you bring them into your awareness, find relief, and create an opportunity to release them. Don’t let this be a theatrical exercise, one where you act or try to force yourself to feel something you’re not. Make sure that you include a good dose of humour from time to time, particularly if you’re dealing with darker and scarier emotions. It’s not necessary to cleanse that emotional and psychic scars that remain from earlier experiences too frequently, but now is the time to do so. Should you find yourself starting to get lost in the whirlpool of traumatic memory, change the scenery by physically moving or intentionally distracting yourself in someway. It isn’t necessary to cure yourself of the feelings associated with these memories all in one setting; instead, simply relieve some of the pressures that lurk below the surface. Associations: Observant; Swift; Opportunistic; Carefree; Versatile; Resourceful; Intelligence; Scavenging; Communication; Sociable; Protective; Messenger; Emotional; Respect; Fairness

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 19, 2017


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


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


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


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

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


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

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

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

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