Animal Wisdom For Your Day! (Whatever Day You Come Upon It!)

Tricolored Heron

I felt called to pull one of the Native American Medicine Cards for us all (Jamie Sams and David Carson) and the card that fell out is Blue Heron.

Here is the message…

Self-Reflection:  Heron medicine is the power of knowing the self by discovering its gifts and facing its challenges. It is the ability to accept all feelings and opinions without denying any emotion or thought.  Heron flies over those who are unaware of who they are and where they belong in the world. Gently dropping a blue feather to them, Heron asks that they follow their intuition and begin the empowering journey of self-realization.”  

And another part of the message… “The magnificence of your human spirit lies waiting for the joy of discovery, if you are courageous enough to follow the Water bird throughout the journey.  Heron reminds you that every traveler on life’s journey is a messenger, and that every destination is the beginning of a new life cycle on the Medicine Wheel.”

I love the message Blue Heron brings!  It is so fitting for this period we are in with our evolution!  My Spirit Guides keep telling me we are in the process of letting go of the old “stories” of who we are, so that we can release the limitations they impose on the expressions of our True Nature. An exciting time for sure, though I know it can also feel very confusing! If you feel like you could use some quick intuitive guidance, I’ve added a new 15 minute empowerment reading option.

Sending much love to you all!

Ascension Symptoms Relief Call – Thursday 2/26

Zippy Sleeping

Animals and children are feeling the effects too! Here is my puppy Zippy catching up on some sleep.

Anyone else feeling exhausted from all these energetic shifts and changes?  I knew we were going to be processing some big stuff with the ascension experience, but I guess I was hoping it would be a little easier on the physical side of things!

This morning (which actually felt like the middle of the night since it was 3 AM!), my Spiritual Support Team walked me through a process to help cleanse my system and bring in supportive energy to restore some balance.  It really brought some relief, so I feel called to share the technique with all of you!  Details are below if this resonates…

Mini-Reading for Your Day!

RobinGood Morning!

Maybe it was just wishful thinking, but I swear I heard a bird singing at daybreak today. Could it possibly mean that spring isn’t as far away as it seems??  Let’s hope that is the case!  In the meantime, here is a mini-reading from the Feathered Omen Oracle Card Deck by Ted Andrews. Enjoy!

Sea Gull:  Adjust behavior and communication

“Although often seen as pests, gulls are actually wonderful birds. They are shore birds, seldom venturing far from land but always staying close to bodies of water.  In particular, they are associated with the oceans and seas.  The world of the seas is filled with great mystery, power and magic. Water is the archetypal creative source.  It has great power that can bring life, death and rebirth into most areas of your life.  Animal messengers associated with this element are often signs that a new rhythm and flow is unfolding around you. This is particularly true of the Sea Gull.  The tides are shifting in your favor.  A myriad of possibilities are opening to you now – in all areas of your life.  In order to take advantage of them though, you must adjust your behavior and communicate in new ways.  Now is the time to develop subtleties in your communication and your behavior or opportunities will be lost.  Do not force, push or try to argue your way into anything new.  It will have the opposite effect and close the door on your efforts.  Tone down any bravado and other ostentatious behaviors. That is when others will notice and embrace your efforts.”

Additional Interpretation from Nancy…

When I ask my Guides about this, what I’m hearing is that we are in the process of breaking out of patterns of behavior that are grounded in fear/ego.  To do this though, we have to surrender into faith – faith that we are being 100% motivated and guided in each breath.  This means that we don’t have to “figure out” how to move forward as we are longing to do.  We just have to trust that the motivation to take action will appear when the opportunity to act from our Higher Self presents itself.  In the meantime, focus on being very present in where you are and what you are doing.  Breathe it in and embrace it fully.  Trust that even if it doesn’t seem to relate to your goals, that in truth it is all part of the process. Spring is coming!  We just have to let Nature take its course both in the outer world and within our own true nature.

Sending much love to you all!



Follow Up on the Expo

Here I am at my table for the event.

Here I am at my table for the event.

Just wanted to share for my fellow introverts that coming out from under the bed really worked!   I had an AMAZING time last weekend and met so many wonderful people.  I really felt so loved, supported and appreciated for who I am and what I do.  So THANK YOU to all of you who helped encourage me or who stopped by to say hello. I am also grateful to my helpers and all the other vendors – especially my lovely neighbor Luanne Harris who gave me free gifts, friendship, and tips all weekend.  I also bought the most beautiful items from her too!

I learned a lot from the whole experience and will be sharing some insights with you soon!

Sending lots of love!


Branching Out (An introvert’s call to come out from under the bed!)

TreesHave you ever felt like the Universe was pushing you to branch out?  Well, I am feeling it right now.

Along with the family changes with my son moving out-of-state, my parents buying a condo in Florida and my husband and I adopting a new puppy, there has also been a push to move in new directions with my work.

In September, I led my very first spiritual retreat to Sedona, AZ  with twelve other sensitive souls.  This was quite a feat for someone who used to find a half hour in Wal-Mart to be entirely too much stimulation.  In November, I started working more actively with Subtle Energy Beings, Nature Angels, and Crystals which led to my work with attuning crystals as a means to connect with the Spiritual helpers around us.

And now, in two days, I will be sitting at my very own booth doing readings at the Great Conjunction Expo in Hudson, Ohio where my name alone will be on the booth sign.    

Poster for Great Conjunction Expo

The actual sign for my table this weekend!


My introvert self is climbing under the bed right now.

I’ll let her hang out there for a little bit, but then I’ll coax her back out.

Why you ask (knowing of course that I am the one doing the asking – note the emphasis on WHY!)?

Because I know deep in my heart that every time I push myself to move into new circumstances and connect with new people, I am always glad I did.  Looking back, I see that is how so many wonderful people are now in my life.  If I’d stayed under the bed, I never would have met them. Nor, frankly, would I be doing this work that I love so much (because stepping out as someone with intuitive abilities was another thing that sent me under the bed for a good long while!).

I’m sharing this because I feel we are all getting the nudge to move into new waters in some form or another.  I have several clients who find themselves looking for a new job or having a long-term relationship end. Many of my colleagues are exploring new avenues in their work too.  Some friends and loved ones are even relocating to new cities, states or even countries.

All of this tells me that I am probably not alone in feeling like climbing under the bed sometimes.  After all, change can be a challenge for even the most hardy of us.  For those of us who are sensitive, even the slightest ripples have an effect.

So how do we navigate the shifting going on in our lives?  For me, it has become a matter of doing my very best to surrender – to trust that my Spirit and Divine helpers will keep me on the path of my highest good, even if my intellect has no idea what that path is.

I am also finding being kind to myself helps.  As much as I would like to just stroll through life shifts without batting an eye, that just doesn’t seem to be how I’m wired.  Accepting that, and being kind to myself through the process, seems to make things a little easier.

Reaching out helps too.  Thank you to Polly and Debbie who so kindly offered to help out this weekend at my booth.  Just knowing they will be there to support me has made a huge difference!  Thank you also to those in my community who have promised to come see me, those who have helped me figure out all the details for having a booth, and those who have sent me encouraging messages!  I am very grateful for you all.  I am also grateful to my Spiritual Support Team (my Angels and Spirit Guides) who keep assuring me they have this all under control.  I am so glad that someone does.  They also promise that I will be meeting many new and wonderful friends while I’m there.  I hope you are one of them!

So, in closing, I’m glad you are joining me on this journey of branching out.  So nice to know there will be other “branches” to bump into out there!

Sending much love to you all!

January Events and Offerings 2015

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a good start to 2015 and staying warm!  I was in Florida for a week with my family and it was tough coming back to cold Ohio.  Here is a photo from the trip just to share a little of the warmth and sea breezes!

Ocean 2015

I have missed those of you I haven’t connected with in awhile!  I tend to communicate a lot more with my Crossroads Coaching Soul Friends Community (which you are all welcome to join!) and end up not posting as much on here.  I am hoping to get back into a routine of writing regularly again though!

Today, I just wanted to share a few opportunities to connect coming up this month.  Here they are!

New Moon Empowerment Circle Reading – Register by Monday 1/19:  This is a pre-recorded reading where each participant gets a personalized intuitive message (though no names are used, I will tell you what number reading you are).   The intention is that all messages have gifts for everyone listening and the whole recording is a cohesive theme.  This month’s New Moon offers a great time to set intentions and make your wishes!  Here is a little about this particular New Moon from Lena Stevens (Power Path):

“This is a time where dreaming big and dreaming “outside the box” is recommended. Higher centered energy is available and you should be greatly inspired with potential. Anything is possible!”

You can sign up here (Love Exchange is $22):  New Moon Empowerment Circle Recording

Winter Forecast Seasonal Reading:  Make the most of the season ahead with this Winter Season Forecast Empowerment Reading!  I’ll be using a Sacred Tree Layout to do your reading.  I’ll be using a variety of oracle cards along with the intuitive insights I receive for you throughout the reading.  There are two options to choose from:  3 Card Spread – $45 or 7 Card Spread – $75.  The reading can be pre-recorded or we can do it on a call together.  Learn more and purchase here:  Winter Forecast Reading

1/31 and 2/1 Great Conjunction Expo and Psychic Fair:  I will be at this event doing Empowerment Crystal Readings and I will have some pre-attuned crystals and my book for sale.  The hours are from 10- 7PM on Saturday and 10-5PM on Sunday.  It is at the Clarion Inn and Conference Center in Hudson, OH.  I attended one of these expos last June and really liked the way it was run and the quality of those offering services. I am excited to have my own table this year!  Visit the website to learn more and to get $1 off admission: Great Conjunction Expo

Finally, here is a little inspiration for today (whatever day you read this) from the Grace Cards by Cheryl Richardson:

“Trust – The more we follow our intuition, the more we’ll find that the right doors open to assist us in fulfilling our life’s purpose.”  

This is very fitting with the January Empowerment Call message.  On that call, I asked for an image for our community for the month of January.  I saw myself swimming in the ocean with waves around me. The sky was gray and there was the remains of my parachute.  I wasn’t hurt, but I also had absolutely no idea where land was.  The message that came through was that this is a good month to trust we are guided/motivated in each moment to do what we need to do, even when we aren’t sure intellectually what that is!  We are moving between one nine year cycle and the next, which can be a bit disorienting.  Put it out to your Angels to motivate and inspire you in each moment and then TRUST!  Your Spirit knows where it is going and you are being protected and cared for during this time of transformation.

Sending much love to you all!

December Events and News 2014

starHappy December!

I hope you are all enjoying the end of this quite eventful year.  We have gone through a lot of changes and we are still getting opportunities to squeeze out any last lingering places where we are holding on to old patterns. Not always the most fun, but isn’t it exciting when you realize that you aren’t falling into the old stories anymore?

Upcoming Events and Special Offers

  • Register by 12/19/2014:  Winter Solstice/New Moon Empowerment Circle Recorded Reading: The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year here in North America (I ought to know as it is often on my birthday – though not this year!).  The turning of the seasons is a chance to really embrace with gratitude the gifts of the prior year and celebrate the gradual turn back to days of longer sun and new beginnings.  This year, the winter solstice also falls on the New Moon – making this a great opportunity to really release the old and anchor your path into a new intention.  For this recorded reading, we will be looking at the overall theme of anchoring in the new for 2015, providing personal messages for those who register with the intention that all messages will have gifts for everyone listening.  Every time I do these recordings, a clear theme develops and it is fascinating to see Divine synchronicity at work!  These recordings are 30-60 minutes long depending on the number of participants.  The readings are done anonymously (I’ll send you a private email with the MP3 download link and information about the number of your personal reading).   Love exchange:  $22; You can register here: Empowerment Circle Reading
  • Special Offer for December:  Empowerment Crystal Readings – 20% off:  These readings provided an opportunity to interact with the Spirit Guide or Angel connected with your empowerment crystal (purchased separately at a discounted price of $18).  These can also be purchased as gift certificates.  Learn more and purchase here:  Empowerment Crystals

December Tips

As I was sharing with my community members today, the infuenza bug has found my house!  My husband is recuperating, but I thought it might be a good idea to share a few resources to keep us all healthy!

  • 5 Minute Energy Routine – Donna Eden:  A great way to keep your energy flowing and your immune system strong!
  • Bodytalk Systems Cortices Excercise:  I took a class on Bodytalk a couple of years ago and still use the routine I learned every day.  Last night, when I woke up feeling a little funky, I did it two times in a row.  It really seems to help!  You can learn one of the basic exercises here and it can be used over and over until you feel better:  Cortices
  • Oil of Oregano:  My Bodytalk Practitioner (Kris Cirocco if you are in Northeast Ohio!) recommended using a drop of Oil of Oregano on my toothbrush to fight off viruses and other germs.  I do this every day – but just be sure to put the toothpaste over the oil drop as Oregano oil is pretty spicy!

Community Membership

My Crossroads Coaching Community empowerment call for December is on 12/14/2014 where I’ll be sharing about a new technique working with the “Heart Song” which is what I’ve been guided to call the song of the Universe.   Connecting to this “song” and then connecting to those we are in relationships with is a great way to get the joy energy flowing and move into a more peaceful frequency!  I also do oracle readings in the last half of the call.  Membership is only $5/month and includes all the benefits below.  If you are interested in joining, you can do so at this link:  Membership

Wishing you all a wonderful Holiday Season!
Much love,


Special Offer and New Product – Empowerment Crystals!

Rose Quartz in Bag 002Can you believe we are almost at the end of 2014?  What a year this has been!  I know I am not the same person who started out the year in January.  So many changes have occurred internally and externally.  The process hasn’t always been easy, but as always, change brings many gifts too.

This fall, I’ve found myself spending a lot of time getting to know my own Team of Angels and Spirit Guides.  With the changes that have occurred, we are rediscovering Guides that have been more in the background until now. These spiritual relationships will grow increasingly important as we move into 2015.  That is why I am offering a new service/product to help provide a bridge to amplify and strengthen these connections.

Empowerment Crystals are exactly what the name describes. They are crystals that empower our connection to our Spiritual Team of Angels and Spirit Guides or to the Earth Energy Centers that are so important in our spiritual growth.  These crystals are programmed to have a sole purpose – to be a bridge connecting you to these powerful resources. As we connect more deeply with the Divine helpers and power centers Mother Earth offers, we gain greater understanding of who we are and why we are here.Empowerment Crystals on an Powerform Activator Disc

For the last month, I’ve been learning about working with crystals from the perspective of subtle energy skills and also creating my own Crystal Team to help me strengthen and clarify my connection with the Divine beings and Earth Centers I rely on.  The process has been fascinating and I am very excited to share the results of it with all of you!

Empowerment Crystals include a 10 minute MP3 recorded meditation introducing you to the Angel, Spirit Guide or Earth Energy Center that the crystal will be programmed to connect you with.  I also am offering phone empowerment crystal readings which will provide more in-depth interaction with these Divine helpers, as well as guidance for your current goals or life path, energy balancing, and practical coaching suggestions.

Happy Holidays Special Offer – 20% off on Empowerment Crystal Readings or Gift Certificates purchased by December 31, 2014
