New Moon Readings – Week of 11/28-12/4

Nature Inspiration - Sunset/Sunrise

I am on my way to Florida so will be throwing in a little Florida sunshine into this month’s New Moon Readings!

Individual New Moon Readings

This Tuesday (11/29) is the New Moon in Sagittarius.  Instead of doing the usual group reading, I am going to do individual recorded readings this week.

The New Moon is a great time to set new intentions and these readings offer insights, energy balancing, practical coaching tips, and intention setting to help you manifest with ease!  The readings are approximately 20 minutes long and will be recorded. You will be sent the link to listen at your convenience.  Love Exchange is $25.  You can sign up on the New Moon Reading page here:  New Moon Readings

Sending love and hugs!



Uplifting Messages and Tools

With the super moon and election stress, it felt like a good time to share some uplifting messages and tools!  See below to learn more:

Earth Wisdom Circle

Sign up by Thursday (11/17) – Recording will be shared on Friday (11/18)

This is a recorded reading for a small group. The recording will help you connect to the calm, peaceful energy of the Bison to empower your own abundance.  Each participant will receive an individual reading on a question connected to abundance.  The recording will also include an intuitive message for the group as a whole, energy balancing, and an intention setting exercise connected to manifesting abundance.    The individual messages will be done anonymously (you’ll be told what number you are when you receive the recording) and the intention will be set that all the messages have gifts for everyone listening.  Love Exchange: $25  Use the Pay Pal link to register:  Earth Wisdom Circle – $25

A Message from the Spirit of the Bison on Abundance:image

We have been working with Bison medicine this month on Spirit Earth and we shared an intuitive message on how the spirit of the Bison can help us to experience abundance. You can read the message here: Bison Medicine and Abundance

Energy Balancing Meditation with the Archangels

I was guided to create a recording sharing one of my favorite energy cleansing and balancing meditations working with the Archangels.  This is approximately 15 minutes long and will clear the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual bodies to restore balance to the whole system.   I hope you find it helpful!

You can listen to the recording here:  Archangel Meditation

Sending love and hugs to all!

Ohio Live Your Joyful Life Classes – Start 10/25

I’m in Montana still, but will soon be on my way back East!  I’m going to be back in the Akron/Cleveland area at the end of the month through Thanksgiving.  While I’m home, I am going to be teaching a new course we (the Spirit Earth Coaching Team) have developed called The Protocol.  It is the foundational teaching to learning how to live a joyful, heart-centered life.  I’m very excited to share it with all of you! Details are below: 

Live Your Joyful Life Course – The Protocol

In the quest to lead a heart-centered life, you are inevitably confronted with fears that trigger fight or flight. These fears encourage you to return to a survival mode of operating in your life, which puts you back into the fear/survival mode of living. To counter that, the Spirit Earth coaching team developed a process we call the Protocol. This process offers a series of concepts, hands on techniques, and spiritual consciousness that returns you to the path of love. Below is an outline of the course:

Week One: Balance Your Body – For this class, you will learn how to listen to your body’s wisdom, restore energetic balance, and understand what you need to come back into a more grounded, peaceful state.

Week Two: Understand Your Mind – For this class, you will learn how to work through your emotions and the thoughts that create them, so you can discover the cause of your fear and move back into love.

Week Three: Follow the Spirit – For this class, you will learn how to discover what the gift of learning is that the fears are offering, align with your truth, so you can manifest what brings you joy.

Week Four: Putting It All Together: For this class, you will have the opportunity to practice using the whole protocol on a topic that you are currently struggling with. Participants will also create a toolkit of the protocol to use on their own.

Ohio Course Details

Where:  Medina Massotherapy – Medina, Ohio

When:  10/25, 11/2, 11/9, 11/16, 6:30 -8:30 PM

September New Moon Recorded Reading 

Somehow I missed the last new moon!  I am currently in Montana taking day trips into Yellowstone National Park.  Quite an amazing place.  We even were blessed to see the Canyon Wolf Pack!  For this month’s new moon reading, I’ll be connecting with Mother Earth and our Spiritual Support Teams of Angels and Spirit Guides to see what is coming through to support you in manifesting your New Moon wishes for the month ahead.  Readings are done anonymously (you’ll be told what number you are) and there will be group messages and energy balancing for the group as a whole. The readings are pre-recorded and you will receive a link to download the reading on your computer.  To register, sign up at the New Moon Readings page here:  Register by Thursday 9/29

Choosing Your Center

Here’s a post I posted recently on Spirit Earth.  Be sure and check out the other posts I have posted at Spirit Earth and sign up to join me on my Joyful Quest by clicking here.

Years ago, I heard a man speak about how to settle the nervous system. He was lecturing to a group of 40 some anxious people. Being empathic, I could feel the tension in the room when he started. He had a very calm manner and proceeded to talk about how our nervous system is responding to things in our environment all the time, sometimes in ways we aren’t conscious of. He talked about how in family dynamics, it is often the person who is most uptight that becomes the center of the family nervous system. They are the ones who have the most dominant presence, often radiating their imbalance. He explained that in a collective situation, everyone’s nervous system will sync with the most dominant energy in the group. That means that if someone who is dominant is very angry, everyone’s nervous system begins to resonate with the anger, causing all kinds of upheaval. He then went on to demonstrate what can happen when someone in a peaceful state becomes the center. He took a few moments and brought himself to a place of deep peace. The energy in the room changed instantly. All those anxious people suddenly settled! Recently, I’ve been reminded of this dynamic. Families are often built around crisis because the person who is most dominant is the one who is most unsettled. This reminded me that our families are just a reflection of our own inner world. We hold all the archetypes (personality aspects) of our loved ones in ourself. Which brought the question of which archetype am I letting be the sun or center of my inner world? I realized, in the past, it was often the wounded child. When our energy is centered around our woundedness we continue to draw to us those things that resonate with the wounds. So what happens if we shift that sun archetype to the part of us that is most joyful? Wouldn’t that mean that all the other aspects of our personality would come into sync with that piece? The demonstration in the room of anxious people would suggest that it would work that way. So would the concepts of quantum physics which suggest it is our beliefs that are constructing our experiences in our world.

Try It

Find time to do a little inward searching. What part of your personality tends to be the center of your experience? If it is a wounded aspect, consider putting out the intention to let your most peaceful and joyous self be the sun in your world. Try it for the day and see what happens when you turn your attention to the happy self inside of you instead of focusing on the fearful one.

Nature Inspiration

While I was writing this passage, I was sitting by the North Fork of the Skokomish River in Washington. In front of me was a heart shaped rock. The energy of the water flowing by with the sun reflected on it was very peaceful and soothing. Spend a few minutes connecting with it to support you in moving your joy to your center.

Wisdom of the HoneyPot Ant

Here’s a post I posted recently on Spirit Earth.  Be sure and check out the other posts I have posted at Spirit Earth and sign up to join me on my Joyful Quest by clicking here.

One of the processes of the quest is to learn how to teach what we are learning about living a joyful life. We have been building a class series to share our learnings and to inspire others to take the quest, In the process, we have come up against the ideas or fears we have in our own foundations that inhibit our ability to stay coming from love. To help us, we used a totem pole spread from a book called Animal Totem Tarot Cards by Lizza Robertson. We decided to start with the first card of the totem card reading which represents the earth that you are planting your dreams in. The card that fell out for me was the Hanged Man with the animal of the HoneyPot Ant. Having some previous experience with the tarot deck, I was less than thrilled about the card that fell out for me. The Hanged Man in traditional decks is all about a man hanging by his feet unable to move. It is a “let go, let God” card that is all about surrender. Being someone that enjoys being able to act, that is always a card that I have dreaded and here it is as the foundation of my joyful life! With some intuitive insights from Jacob and Ryan, some deeper insights into the animal totem connected to the card, and some of my own intuitive guidance, I have come to realize, though, that it is actually the perfect card for me. The HoneyPot ant is an ant who is stuffed with nectar and other food substances and then it spends its life regurgitating the food to the members of the ant family, so they always have food, even in the harsh desert. At first, this seems a card of sacrifice, but as I started to connect deeper, I realized it is actually a gift. The ant that fills this role always has enough food. It is literally filled to overflowing with nectar and sweetness. That excess is then shared with the other members of the ant colony. It is also the ultimate card of allowing the Divine to work through you. It calls for a deep, heart-centered devotion and faith in the Creator and a willingness to let the Divine lead. It also calls for a position that places your heart above your head. For me, this is the ultimate gift. I have a strong mind that is used to leading. This card is saying at my foundation, my heart is the one that leads and I have found that is the only way to truly experience the joy I am seeking.

What is the earth you are planting your joyful life in? Are you comfortable with what you have chosen to come from in your experiences? Today, ask to connect to the animal energy that is the best one for you to build off of in your joyful journey (and if you are interested in some help, call us to schedule a reading!). Connect to the animal’s energy and let it support you in the creation of your day and your life.

Connect with Nature

One way to be still and find the essence that you need at your core is to be in nature. Below is a photo from Rialto Beach in Washington. Connect with the flow of the tides and let the wind blow in some fresh perspective into your experience.

Feel Good Thoughts

Here’s a post I posted recently on Spirit Earth.  Be sure and check out the other posts I have posted at Spirit Earth and sign up to join me on my Joyful Quest by clicking here.

One of the challenges to living a joyful life is keeping your thoughts positive. So often, the mind, which is trained to look for things to worry about keeps pointing out anything that might be a potential danger. That makes it tough to stay in a joyful frame of mind! A few days ago, we saw a quote from Abraham Hicks. Essentially, the message was to choose the thoughts that feel good – to make that your top priority. I started thinking about that and pondering how it could help with our quest. What came to me was the realization that our bodies always know when we are lined up with what resonates with our highest good. When we think things that are negative or untrue, our physical system reacts with tightness or discomfort. Using this information, I decided to “test out” some different thoughts until I found the ones that my system opened up to. The results were astounding! My energy shifted drastically and I found my heart wide open when I stuck to the thoughts that were in resonance with my system. The next step was continuing to reaffirm them, even if it looked like on the surface they weren’t true. Even though, I’ve just started the process, I feel confident that this is a great tool to help us start living from love not fear. I’ve put out the intention to have my thoughts match what is true and resonates with my being. That way I can stay in a state of love and the joy will flow!

Peace Begins with Choice

There has been a lot of frustrations brewing in the world lately. The political climate along with more violent occurrences in the news has been challenging everyone to stay in a positive mindset. So how does one stay committed to coming from love when it seems there is so much anger and fear going on in the outer world? That is a question we explored with a client recently and we felt what came through might be helpful for others. For us, we are doing our best to keep our eyes on the natural world and look for guidance there. The bald eagle has been coming up in card readings and we actually saw one fly over as we were working on this entry. The bald eagle represents the ability to fly high above what is going on below. It sees the big picture and only dives to the earth when it has a specific aim in mind. As you fly over your own life, look for the peace, joy and abundance you are seeking. Choose to fly towards that over getting pulled into the whirlpool of fear and negativity. What to do when those around you are caught in the fear and want to pull you in too? Be courageous enough to acknowledge their fears and then redirect to a more peaceful topic. So often, we get pulled into verbally rehashing and worrying at the things that frighten us to no effect. Ask yourself, “Is there some positive action or insight that can come from this discussion?” If not, be willing to politely excuse yourself from it if you are unable to shift the focus to a topic that is more able to uplift and empower. Fear breeds fear. Our job right now is to keep focusing on love, so that is what grows in our world. We are the co-creators of our reality. What frightens us in the outer world is what is being reflected from within ourselves. Where are you not loving, respecting and supporting yourself? Where are your boundaries not being respected or where are you ignoring your needs? Be kind, be loving, and keep your eyes on the big picture. Chaos is sometimes needed to bring change and with that change new growth can happen. Choose that the new growth be that of love and peace. Don’t fight the darkness in yourself or the world around you. Send love to it instead. That is the only way it can truly be transformed.

Try It

Make a list of things you love to discuss. What good books have you read lately? What favorite recipe have you tried? What interesting experience have you had or beautiful place you would love to visit? Make a list of topics that uplift you and keep them handy. As the fears start kicking up around you, try shifting to one of your favorite topics. By helping to get others interested in something else, you are doing your part to spread the love.

We recently spent a day at a beach in the state of Washington. The tide pools were teeming with life. Here is a photo to help you connect with the fascinating world of nature.
