Raising Your Frequency….

Today I want to talk about energy. As I have mentioned before and I would suspect you already know that we are all made of energy and the vibration level of your energy plays a big part in your health and how you manifest in this world.

The highest vibrational energy we can put forth is love. If you want to do something to protect yourself and others against the wrongs of the world, take time out to send love to the things that cause you fear, worry or perceived threats. I incorporate it to my morning gratitude and prayer. But you can do it any time during the day when you think of it. Pay attention to your motives before you act. Adjust your emotions and perspective to love for the best outcomes.

I listened to a podcast this morning that was originally recorded in 2020 by The Essential Oil Revolution on the effects of EMF’s and how essential oils can help. They stated in the podcast several essential oils that have high energy frequencies that protect you against EMF’s. The highest noted to date is Northern Lights Black Spruce. Second is Rose oil. Others that fall a bit lower, but are good are Frankinsence, Fennel, Chamomile & Helichrysum. Fennel was specifically recommened by the host of the podcast for protection. These oils not only help to improve the effects EMF’s have on the body, but raise your energy/vibration level – giving yourself a boost so to speak. If you can use things to help raise your energy level higher, these oils have a positive affect on your health and psyche overall and help to keep you more focuses on positivity & the love motivational perspective.

You may remember from a previous blog, or not, that I have been put in a situation where I was concerned for my safety and I diffused the situation by just telling the person I loved them in a meaningful way. In that moment it truely stopped what I didn’t know how to. The lowest vibrational energy language is hate. So remember when you are reading or hearing something that goes against what you want or believe, send it love. If you decide to act toward disempowering something negative, take action with the perspective of love to guide you. If you are setting intentions for a long term goal, make sure your perspective is based on love. Try love and see what happens!

Lets see what the cards have to say about protecting yourself from harms in life. I drew the card: “The Land Between,” from the Oracle of the 7 Energies by Collette Baron-Reid. The essential meaning of this card is: being between worlds, learning to be okay while at the threshold of what was and what will be, a time of waiting and evolving, gray areas, something essential yet still in development, metamorphosis.The book also says, “The process in between worlds is where things get really interesting. You learn how to manage your fear, how to stay present in the now, how to see in the dark.” It talks about how to handle your lessons with grace because you can’t go any faster. That is what I am saying above & I believe mental fortitude is essential when hoping to change or shape our world from what it is to what we want it to be. That comes from motivations of love, grace, patience, curiosity, trust and humility. Avoid over reacting negatively to try to find resolve. Of course we get triggered from time to time. I try to vent my negative feelings when triggered so that it doesn’t accuse or disrupt others. I usually say as a preface, “Can I vent something to you?” When I was younger and having my monthly cycle, I’d tell my husband, “The twisted sister is out of the closet and running the show today, just so you know!” It added humor, disfused things and allowed him not to take my expressions so personally. Also remember, you are lowering your vibration by negative reactions, so you will be met back with the same kind of result. Therefore, it is important to transition the negative to a more productive perspective before acting. Ask your spirit guides to be there to help steer you toward love in all situations and then trust they will be there for you. I feel my spirit guides daily with my work and am so thankful they watch over me because they have prevented me making some mistakes that would have been very stressful. Learn to feel within yourself when something doesn’t seem right or when you feel like it is true. I have a few ways of experiencing it. When something isn’t right, I just feel in my gut that I need to double check what I just did or reconsider a decision. I don’t feel at peace about it & most often can’t reach a clear decision. When something feels right or true, I often get goosebumps or just feel silent and clear inside. Like there is no objection within me. I also see certain numbers when I look at the clock or just randomly in my environment that give me confirmation. I have had songs come over the radio, or been driving and glanced at a billboard sign that straight forward gave me a direct message. If you ask, you will recieve, but you need to put trust and faith behind your request and be open to recieve. Don’t ask for a specific outcome because spirit will decide on the form. Just trust your gut when it strikes a cord inside yourself as something important you need to hear or see. Lastly, the card above is saying when you are in the middle of change, it is an unknown state mentally & emotionally. It can help to understand where you are, have patience you will find your way and answers will come. Avoid falling off the cliff into negativity when you are learning, exploring and trying to understand your next right action. Get comfortable with the unknown place, the new thing you want to try so transition can become a more comfortable part of our daily life. It doesn’t have to be negative if you can give yourself some leanancy to learn and grow. Put faith in spirit and ask for help, however you need it. I have faith it will help.

Help me spread the love to raise our vibration against the harms in life that seem to be around us that we may feel like we have no control over. The solution is love! Take time each day to feel love and send it out into the universe. Lastly, you can make a list of the things that concern you each day and then before you go to bed, verbally tell spirit with the feeling of love in our heart “I send love to …… (the items on your list.”

Peace & Love, Susan

Flowing and Healing….

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday. I was fortunate to spend it with family and friends in Kansas and had a wonderful time in spite of one of our family getting COVID and exposing most everyone the night before Thanksgiving. It limited a few family members who weren’t exposed from joining us according to their comfort level & of course the COVID positive person didn’t join. So that was disappointing, but didn’t affect us from carrying on and having a great day together. In the end, none of us got sick, including my 94 yr. old mother. I am so grateful in spite of our different personalities, we can get together and make fun the objective. I am also so grateful for my lifelong friends I got to spend cherished time with. I only regret my husband was not able to join me, due to issues at our house that had to be tended to!

Before I left Kansas to return home, my lower back went out. It was a challenge to fly back to CA solo, but I managed with the help of some good people willing to assist & just meeting the right person at the right time. At my connection in Denver, in spite of my pain, I trudged to a coffee bar for a hot drink and the woman ahead of me in line had several extra coupons expiring that day, so she gleefully gifted me and several other travelers to a free tea or coffee. Which mad that process a whole lot easier and of course pleasant receiving such a gift! When life nearly disables you, it reminds you if you follow your heart and do only what is important you have all that you need and can receive what you truly want. I was so grateful for it all and glad to make it home to my husband and dogs where I could rest and begin healing.

When I returned home, I dug into a couple healing books (“Heal your Body” by Louise L. Hay & “Message From the Body” by Michael J. Lincoln, PH.D.) to see how I might have contributed to this injury with my thoughts and feelings. These books illustrate negative mental & emotional patterns associated with injury and illness. “Heal Your Body” also gives positive affirmations for assistance in change. From the book, I acknowledged the negative patterns & wrote down the positive affirmations to begin to think differently. Then I started to pay attention within, my thoughts and my outward attitude. In the end, I concluded I just needed to flow, let go of disagreement, judgement & discerning thoughts and feelings. Just flow. It helped me to become conscious of how I lock myself inside and create limitations & control. It pushed me to ask for help, relax/rest, allowing myself to heal, which was equally challenging as I saw my husband be left with all the responsibility. But I forced myself to flow and to ask for help when needed and not over do it. The interesting thing about an injury is when you get off track, the pain reminds you to get back into flow. I was also gifted with a very clear dream one evening where I met up with this psychic who shared me how I tend to choose the lesser of what I really want when given choices or in a fork in the road. When I woke up, I drew an Oracle Card – “Make a Choice!” Which also reminded me, when I don’t know, ask Spirit to help guide me. Gave me lots to think and pay attention to as I flowed. I am at a time in my life where change is sitting in front of me unfolding. What I am unclear of, I will turn over to spirit & trust I will find my answers and know my right actions.

When going into a more observational and listening mode, you learn so much about how you react to every day life. How you see things, what you think and feel about it, how you motivate your yourself and what you tell yourself and others. We often are so busy and on the go, we don’t stop to really notice the mental and emotional patterns we carry on a daily basis. If you are in a leadership role in any aspect of your life, you are usually forced to output more then observe and resonate in silence. I can tell you that being quiet and kind is a great exercise to build into your life on a regular basis. It can teach you so much about how you treat yourself and others. Things you don’t even realize you do because of the rote attachment to your perspective and relationships. Try it for an hour a day for a week and see what you learn about yourself and others. Try to involve others in the problem solving, information gather before decisions and gather more participation to see what unfolds.

Let’s see what the cards say: My question is: “What is it we need to know about changing our thought and emotions in relationships with people and life for better health?” I drew a card from the “Enchanted Map” by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “Education” in protection mode (upside down.) The decks book tells us, “Stubbornness and the desire to know it all and be right no matter what, will not get you what you want. Or could it be you are afraid to be seen as someone who knows less than you are supposed to? Or are you flying by the seat of your pants skimming, hoping no one will notice? A strident lust for certainty will never bring you the wisdom you seek. Life is filled with lessons, some bitter, some sweet.” I say – the gift of flow allows us to follow the mystery of our intuition and heart. It keeps life more in the adventure state & allows for magic & surprises. If you are silent and give yourself time to see the full picture before interacting you will gain more wisdom and your response will often be for the good of all instead of motivated by competitiveness or the ego. Magic can unfold and something new can occur between you and others if you are patient and tuned into your motivation before you speak or act. Sometimes it is good to be the silent one and others times it is good to be involved. Listen to your heart when is the right time for either. After all, for us to learn it helps to know when is the right time to be supportive, motivate others, passive or act. During this holiday season, is a good time to get in touch with your true role at social gatherings. Set your intentions every day & have fun exercising wisdom for the good of all!

Peace & Love, Susan

Full Moon in Taurus

Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022 in the Northern Hemiphere is the Full Moon & a lunar eclipse. This Full moon in Taurus is about finding middle ground, aligning the mind with the heart, forgiving and letting go of the past so that you can move forward more connected as your true, authentic self. The eclipse pushes us to let go of the past, to restart from a more pure form of truth and raise our vibration to a higher level. Once we let go of our thoughts & emotions that hold us back because of past wounds or what we have learned to fear, we can be free to flow with our soul, our hearts desire, with love at the helm. Living at a higher vibration, hearing and being guided by spirit more powerfully, resulting in more magical moments fulfilling our intentions in life. The Sun in Scorpio & planetary influences are highlighting the feels of our hearts and what we truly desire. Taurus is about love and peace, while Scorpio is deep thought, death and rebirth and a willingness to do things without fear. The eclipse brings the energy to let go and restart from a better place. When we let these wounds go and connect with our truth guided by love, we are able to forgive, heal and move forward at a faster speed into the future as the North Node (future) and Uranus (great awakener) are still around since August helping to propel us into the future. We are finishing up what we have been working on this past year with giving and receiving love, learning to accept the truth of our desires and flowing with our intuition toward our destiny. Some of us have been propelled more strongly that others, but no matter the hardship or awakening, we are all more aware because of our journey. We all have the ability to let go, heal & forgive to recognize the path forward is one guided by our hearts and love. Connecting to spirit for that is our true partner in life, our innate wisdom.

Use this Full Moon to let go of the fears of the past, the wounds from failures and the after thoughts that cause pain, humility and paralysis from taking action toward your dreams or cause you to backtrack on progress. It’s the afterthoughts of our choices that steer us astray. Putting acceptance from others before our own passions that swerve us away from what we are destined for. Don’t let fear be the guide, turn off your busy mind and emotions stimulated by life’s chaotic surroundings, learn to meditate to open space for spirit to flow through and provide guidance. Talk to spirit and offer prayer for yourself and others on a daily basis. Make yourself available to be of service for the good of all and be grateful for the gifts and goodness that comes into your life. Take a chance by following your spiritual guidance, intuition and truth……flow, be surprised by the synchronicities that occur as a result of it. Nothing new can happen until you stop looking outside yourself for the answers. The answers are within your heart, your natural self. Let the old die so the new can blossom. It is time to let the inner wisdom guide and to acknowledge the gifts received with gratitude.

Let’s see what the cards have to say about what we need to let go of to connect with spirit to live our true desires of our hearts. I drew “The Fortunes Wheel” from the Shaman’s Dream by Collette Baron-Reid & Alberto Villoldo. The essential meaning from the card reads – Luck and Right Timing. It says to hold your desires as your intentions and it becomes true. The Fortune’s Wheel comes unannounced. Notice the signs, the coincidences and the seemingly magical events. Use the creative power of the Fortunes Wheel for the benefit of others and the gifts will be returned to you tenfold. Recall you boldest and noblest longing & invite it into your life. I say, it is time to awaken what is within your heart that you have longed to take action on toward your truth. Open your mind to accept what is true and truth will open it’s doors to your life. Forgive the misgivings of actions of the past and use the wisdom gained to guide actions forward. Open yourself to serve others while fulfilling your dreams. Let go of what is wrong with the world and see what is right, let your truth empower the energy flowing toward the good!

Peace & Love, Susan

New Moon in Scorpio

The New Moon in Scorpio is Tuesday, October 25th in the Northern Hemisphere. As New Moons go, it is a time to write intentions for what it is you intend for in your future. Scorpio is considered one of the most intense influencing archetypes by some astrologers and is about death & rebirth. So we not only are creating new intentions, but are also focusing on what it is we need to let go of. Kind of like the New Moon and Full Moon in one. Letting things that no longer work die within yourself to be reborn for what better serves you moving forward. This New Moon focuses on going within your heart and mind to see what no longer aligns with the desired changes you want for your life, a new path forward toward a better reality fulfilling your dreams. This entails communication, relationships, community, giving and receiving love. When you do an inventory of what you are ready to give up to become your reborn self, then your life will begin to change. How you see the world, how you look at others, how you label things external to your heart, cleaning up your ego, the actions needing improvement in order to get what you desire. Nothing magically happens without acknowledging what no longer fits into your desired self. So when you are focusing on your new intentions, be sure to acknowledge & be honest about what must die in order to become who you say you want to be, to have the life you desire.

With Mars presently sitting still before it goes retrograde soon until March, it is a time to get in alignment of walking your talk. Connecting to your personal life purpose, your Dharma. With eclipse season launching as well, things are amplified and intensified in strength and speed. There has to be acknowledgement & a willingness to allow change and transformation at a deep level. Remembering that everything starts within and projects out to the world which formulates opportunity and change. Then realigning yourself with the world you create. Thus it could mean leaving friendships/relationships, thought patterns, reactions or actions that no longer align with who you are & to enter into the reborn reality of what you want and desire. For instance, you may find that certain people in your life may have been very good for you at one point in your life, but they are no longer aligning with the direction you are moving. Inventory the way you think, judge, finger point, shame, control, co-depend, over extend, etc. & recognize how it affects the balance in your life. New life comes by acknowledging all the things in life that no longer fit and carrying out the change without having to get acknowledgement from others. It is about finding your tribe and being a part of it somewhere in the middle without “having to be” the best or the worst. Just being your true self with heartfelt intentions without attachments, flowing and trusting. It is a true form or reform.

Take the time to rest, let life flow through you. A busy mind can block you from inner wisdom. It is also important to acknowledge some of the things that are happening in the world are a result of the collective. You will know soon enough what needs to change & learn from it, if you give yourself time to clear your mind, move away from all that life throws at you that involves chaos, confusion and resistance. Dream, imagine, meditate to open your mind for wisdom and spirit to flow and get in touch with your heart to align with your true intentions. This is truly a time to inventory the inner so that the outer may manifest toward your dreams. Your end result should be about walking your talk!

Let’s see what the cards say you need to know in order to identify what needs to die as we set our intentions toward rebirth. The card I drew is from the ‘Wisdom of the Oracle ‘deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card is “the Fates.” The essential meaning of this card is fate, karma, acceptance that there are things you cannot change and knowing what those things are. The book says the Serenity Prayer sums up the meaning of this card: “God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. It may not be in your cards to understand why certain events occurred, but you can accept the mystery and work with what those events and what your current circumstances have to teach you. Some things are fated to happen due to the collective, nature & past experiences you may never understand and are uncontrollable. I say, we have to learn to get in touch with what feels honest and true in the now and flow with it as circumstances unfold. Follow what you feel aligns with your foundation including the intentions of outcomes for the good for all. Let go of needing to tear others down to justify yourself & feed your ego. Instead find your place within the world that reflects what you believe to be true. Understand the things you don’t align with have their own place, their own lessons and their own path, find your tribe-your place. Become a working part of it to naturally empower and strengthen your dreams into reality. Walk your talk as inner self equals the reflection of your outer world. And remember some of what is being reflected could be ancestral or from a past live that you came into this lifetime to experience and heal.

Living Truth is Living Proof….

It seems when we are misaligned with our truth we are lead astray from what is important to us. We find ourselves making excuses or place blame for why we didn’t accomplish what it is we set out to accomplish. I know there are literally times when you are so busy living your truth, you fall behind, I am not talking about those times & in those times you restructure to find balance. When you are working against the truth in your heart, you are off the path of why you came into this world – living your true purpose. You feel like oil in water in your own life. Sometimes it takes becoming so unhappy, you do destructive things to yourself, or create a scenario to have your life blow up before you are able to change course. Sometimes hardship is part of your life plan you came here to work out in this lifetime, but it takes being connected to your truth to see you through it in a healthy way. Being motivated outside your heart, takes you to places you usually don’t want to be.

Just to give an example, I am a procrastinator at times. I sometimes find procrastination is a gestation period of processing to find my truth before I will act. Or I also believe it can be about timing to get the best outcome. Distinguishing the motivation of non-action is important. When I am doing something I really don’t want to do, I wait until I am at the deadline and grudge through it, or I wait until what I have convinced myself is the absolute perfect time to complete it. The perfect time comes when I figure out what is blocking me from taking action or admiting I really didn’t want to do it anyway. Why? That is what I have to ask myself when I am frozen. How did I get here & where do I want to go instead? Who am I doing this for? Yet another question I have to ask. It always leads me back to needing a change to realign with my truth.

Of course we all have responsibilities in life that are not fun, but being grateful you are able to do it makes a big difference in how you approach things in life. There is always someone who has it worse than you. We can live in the excuse, deny ourselves success or be grateful you have the opportunity to live a great life and the responsibilities that come with it. If we drag it out, we fall into self-criticism, stress about not getting it done, or be in utter dread without motivation to cause further stress. Why? That is what you have to ask yourself. Why do you want to disempower yourself? It takes courage to embark on the discomfort of something new. To be guided by trust and faith that your truth will lead you to the end goal, once you get through the unknown, the growing pains. At your most challenged moments talk to spirit and ask them to guide you to resolve. If you truly believe and are in alignment, your answers will come. But remember, sometimes what you want you may not be ready for, so be patient and do the work to get there.

The best thing often times is to just do what you need to get done, the minute you recognize you need to. Then it is over with. No valuable time is wasted. Sometimes all it takes is 1 small step to get going because once you start things seem to change and unfold. Remember, if you are frozen, don’t know what to do or how to start, then turn to spirit and ask for help. Help is always possible, believe it & when it comes, be grateful.

As we are human and constantly growing and changing, we can feel a bit off in the processing phase of change. If you choose to settle for less than what is optimal to your truth, then look at the imbalances it creates in your life to decide if they are worth it. It is your choice & you have to take responsibility for what you accept. Obviously when it comes to relationships with others, we all are different from one another & we need to accept people for who they are, so in turn we can be accepted. We can either drag each other down or build each other up. We all are connected and our individual lives are based on the overall wellness of one another.

Differences are healthy, but they can also be unhealthy. Being with someone who is very opposite than you can be very enlightening, growth provoking or unworkable. Depending on how you choose to react to it. I am very intuitive & my husband is very intellectual. Together we have a lot of common interests. We do many things differently than one another and therefore we learn from one another. It takes radical acceptance, to let go of the negative and flow to see what there is to learn. The things I don’t like, I don’t let limit my life. And if they do, that is on me. If it changes to be not okay, we work to make it work for each of us because we are committed to each other. We agree we want each other to be able to do the things that are most important to each of us, but work to keep the balance of togetherness. On top of that, we value our friendship & respect one another. However, when a relationship affects your quality of life or disagrees with your most important values in life, it can be a struggle. If it is steering you away from who you are and what is important, are you really on course? That is not the life I choose for myself personally. We each have to decide & take responsibility for our choices and how we choose to live. If something is not workable, then we have to make the necessary change. When you live out of alignment, it affects your whole life, especially your physical body. So protecting someone to avoid change is really only hurting the person you are protecting because you are both out of your truth, getting by and not fulfilling your life purpose. Imbalanced & unsatisfied. To start, you have to recognize what you need to change and if you can’t bring yourself to do it, then ask for help and answers for guidance to start. It is so liberating to be happy, in alignment with truth and to have those around you feeling the same. Life is always evolving & has it’s ups and downs, but don’t get stuck on the carousel going in a repetitive circle trying to stay safe and comfortable. Because at some point it will throw you off and you will wonder where the time went and see what you have lost living safe. Remember, spirit is always there to help support and guide you.

Lets look to the cards to see what we each need to know about finding our truth in our life path in relationships. I drew a card from the Wisdom of the Oracle by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “Serendipity!” The essential meaning from the book is: Opportunity allied with readiness; the awareness of synchronicity; luck and good fortune appearing as signs and symbols; a magical alignment of events. Wow, how appropriate is that message?! When you are living your best life, connected to your truth, the magic happens in accomplishments. We all have the ability to harmonize our life with magical outcomes, good fortune and pure joy when we stay in alignment with our truth. When you are in your truth, spirit is in line with you giving guidance & support. The flow of the magic from a higher power surrounds you and propells your life forward with obvious opportunities, people and signs. Being of service for the good of all is so important to your path of truth. How do you get there if you are not there now? Write down the things you like and don’t like about your life right now. Categorize them in a controllable column and uncontrollable column. Set strategies with the controllable column, take actions to resolve them. Then pray or meditate for anwers and enlightenment to what you feel is uncontrollable. Remember, everything in our life is a reflection of what we believe and accept inside ourselves. You have the power to create a better world by being good to yourself by living your truth, this raises your energy/vibrations which sends encouragement to others in the world. Being good to yourself with the component of for the good of all mixed into your thoughts and actions is a perfect recipe for success. But it has to start with you!

Peace & love, Susan

Full Moon in Aries

October 9, 2022 at 1:54pm, PDT is the Full Moon in Aries. This Full Moon comes with great potential for healing in our relationships. We have the Sun (conscious awareness), Mercury (mind) & Venus (heart, giving & receiving love) all in Libra (the inventor of relationships- the we, balance, harmony, justice) opposing Chiron (the great healer). The Full Moon (unconscious awareness) is in Aries (I am) and is a time of letting go. How can we take this we vs me polarity and let it lead us toward healing?

This past year astrologically, has been about healing and releasing, opening our hearts to give & receive love more. A moment where we discover, when you do not feel love, it is a moment to release and let love in to heal. This is a time to replace judgement, hatred, right and wrongness to deepen your love toward healing to create solutions. Remember that relationships are not just about romance. It is first about the relationship with yourself, our immediate environment & the collective universe. You must first look in the mirror and see what you are reflecting. A good measure is looking at your world to see the results of your reflection, as inner = outer. But the most important relationship is with your spiritual connection, however you define it. When you put that relationship first, everything else thrives. Because you connect with a wisdom and truth to guide you. This is a time to move closer to letting love be your motivation in life and to be able to receive what you give. Putting forth love of all things so that what doesn’t presently line with love, will be moved to change or die. To heal, we must let things go that don’t serve the collective, so the new can be born. That comes when we reflect curiosity to what we don’t understand or perceive as familiar. Then open our hearts to connect with our truth, to do in a loving way, what is good for the collective, which in turn creates change on a massive level & within ourselves.

Let’s see what the cards say we need to let go of so that we can feel more balance, harmony & love in our relationship to ourself & the world. I drew a card from the Enchanted Map deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew was “Heal the Ouch” in protection mode. Meaning we need to pay extra attention to the essential meaning of this card which is: Forgiveness is the healer of the soul. The book says in so many words to make amends for any harm you’ve done, recognize how you’ve been selfish, greedy or inconsiderate. Let go of resentments to those who have done you wrong. Forgiving and loving yourself is important. Be humble and willing to admit to your weaknesses. Bring healing light to old wounds. I say – wow, that is a pretty perfect answer to the question. I hope you will take time to evaluate what it is you need to let go of within yourself so you may heal and live a more loving life. So in return, your world becomes a reflection of love that you are worthy of receiving. Sending much healing love to all.

Peace, Susan

The Thin Veil

October is such a fun time for connecting with Spirit. It is the time of year when the veil between the earth and the spirit world is thinnest. Typically it is a time when your intuition is stronger than normal. If you are working to raise your vibration to connect with the spirits on the other side, your abilities are more empowered at this time. It is a good time to focus on learning meditation to open space in your conscious mind to let spirit in, setting intentions to connect with your higher self and to use tools to ask questions and find answers through your spiritual practice. If you have tools you use to connect with your intuition, you might consider utilizing it on a daily basis this month. I will be drawing Oracle Cards every morning this month & then of course if I have additional questions will use them for supportive insight. They always lead me to discover things about myself and assist in problem solving. If you are longing to connect with someone who has passed, this is also an excellent time to consider a reading with a Medium. Get a personal referral from a friend with someone they have personal reference to their work so you know they are the real deal.

Let’s draw a card to see what spirit has to tell us today about expanding our spiritual practice for empowerment. The card I drew from the Enchanted Map by Collette Baron-Reid is “Metamorphosis” in protection (upside down). Protection simply means we need to slow down and listen carefully to this message. The essential meaning of this card means: You are in the process of deep and beautiful change. The Protection book message says: There are times of chaos and darkness that occur, much like the growing pains of the caterpillar becoming the butterfly. There is a tendency to expect the worse when difficulty arises – when something is taken away or unwanted circumstances come to challenge you to let go of old ideas about how life is supposed to be. You are experiencing the temporary discomfort we all must go through before the beauty is revealed. I say: How interesting I drew this card, because I experienced this last night. Before I went to bed, I read a couple headline stories from a news source that were chillingly disturbing. Not a good decision on my part to do this before bed! It created stress in my mind and my thoughts were reeling, my emotions of fear and helplessness came to the surface. As it started to feel into emotional pain I suddenly had insight to recognize that I was in charge and I was not going to fall for this fearful narrative I had just read about. I instantly changed my emotions to confidence and started to say out loud & then write down what I believed was possible, what I was going to do to counter it. I was creating a plan of empowerment & believing it, my whole demeanor changed, my fear was gone and I believed good is possible. Small steps in the direction toward solutions. It was the difference between feeling overwhelmed and sinking into fear thinking, to beginning to create a plan of solutions. Even if I didn’t know the answers, I created the belief answers would come to me and it would be ok. I believed would be guided to do what I need to do to be safe and empowered. I then drew 3 Oracle cards to see what other insight I needed to know about, where I was headed and what the potential of my actions could create. It all brought me peace of mind. Empower yourself at your weakest moments. Create support you can turn to when you feel confused. Take time every day to reach out or pray to your spirit guides and ask for help to find your answers. They are there for you, all you have to do is ask, trust & have faith in truth. There is always light waiting to shine through darkness, you just have to look for it. Remember you are not only helping yourself, but you are helping others by the energy you create in finding & generating solutions. Energy is the source of consciousness & action. Make it honest & for the good of all! Be a part of the greater good, the empowered good!

Peace & love, Susan

Dreams and Healing

This morning just as I woke, I had a strong impression from the ending of a dream. It was the only thing I remembered once awake. I was in my home town, driving away from my family home. When I noticed my dog, Sonny was running away from the house after me. My mom was standing on the porch. I was in my blue car I drove just after college. I felt like I had to stop so Sonny would stop chasing me. When I stopped to turn around, my car died. I tried to restart it, but it wouldn’t start. Sonny as you see in the picture above has hair missing. But in the dream it was fully grown, fluffy gold hair and he looked very healthy. When he came into rescue 2 yrs. ago, they shaved his coat because it was all matted. His coat has never fully grown back. We have been working recently on healing him from a bladder infection and getting his thyroid working again as it plummeted this past year. He has also been having difficulty getting up the stairs and slowing down. I have been working with a vet and homeopath & feeling a bit worried about him.

As I woke up, I felt my hands were swollen, my neck stiff and my upper back was out. But I felt first thing was to write down my dream before I forgot it. So I wrote the dream down asking to know what it meant & why I felt so horrible physically. I then listened to a private video talk with Medium Shawn Leonard. I am just getting ready to start a 1 yr. course with him today and this was the last free video. He had a couple of his students on the video, one a Reiki Healer & the other an empath. As I listened to their testimonies of his work and gained some insight from their experiences, that in return began to inspire intentions to set for myself. I started to feel motivated do some yoga as I listened to help myself feel better physically. Then I had this overwhelming feeling to lay flat on my back and visualize my skeleton in alignment. I visualized starting at my feet and going all the way up my body, on my back, one vertebrae at a time, visualizing everything aligned. I could sense the areas that were out of place and visually aligned them. Then I went to my heart, it was an empty space & black, there was nothing there. I saw these hands cover my heart and start to do compressions, but still nothing was there, it was black. I began to try to create light and the healing color of green on my heart while the compressions were going on. The understanding I got from this visual was, I need to let go of the fear and beliefs that hold me back from moving forward with my intuitive and healing practice. I also need to connect & love my body more. Right now my life is divided between what I have to do & what I want to do. I don’t have enough time to fulfill my wishes of how I spend my time and it makes me frustrated and overwhelmed at times. So my body is out of balance and feeling the physical strain of that division, emotions and thought patterns. I asked to be shown the way to unification and balance & to let go of the fear that holds me back. I finished feeling a lot better physically after I was done. I also felt clarity on what my dream was telling me, the message was that Sonny is going to heal. He is not electing to go “home” where my mother was standing. My mother is 94yrs. old with dementia and clearly not on a healing path. Sonny has chosen not to follow her, but to follow me toward healing. I feel in my heart he is going to get better, so I am letting go of the worry and believing he will be okay. My car not starting seems like it was my fear and worry that was standing in the way of his healing as well. Dogs are so connected to their owners and if we are worried, they feel it.

I hope you can see from the story above how you can create answers in your life by following your inspirations. I believe what I described above was lead by spirit. My mornings are generally filled with meditation, journaling, yoga, muscle strengthening before I start my day. Sometimes I draw an Oracle Card for inspiration & include that in my journaling as well. Or as today, if I have a dream, I always write that down first in my journal before starting the rest of my routine. This morning I followed my instinct which ended with me finding answers I needed to hear for healing & ended with me doing my normal morning routine. The seeds of spirit can lead you to your answers if you trust and believe.

Woo for you!

I wasn’t feeling any particular inspiration of what to write about today, so thought I’d just draw some Oracle Cards and see what we need to know at this time. I drew 3 cards from my Enchanted Map deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The first card I drew that represents what has happened/past is “Rescue”. The card representing now is “Balancing Act” and the 3rd card representing what is ahead is “Intention.”

Looking at the past, the Rescue card reflects on the past, especially the past few years of the pandemic. Where a lot of people have felt isolated, in chaos, experienced uncontrollable losses, confusion and a need to know what the outcome is going to be. It has most likely been one of the most challenging times in many people’s lives. Our past experiences can create hardship, anxiety, depression, broken relationships and divide. When in a hard time in our life, some of us may have been hoping this would just miraculously end and life would go back to normal without taking any action to provoke change. Just asking it to end. That is Rescue – giving away your power, doing nothing to change the circumstances in your life. Falling victim and sinking deeper. Forgetting that you have the power to move forward in spite of your circumstances. A situation like this can happen to help us realize that we need to let go of the belief that something outside ourselves has our answers. That what others say to us dictates our life. We need to commit to make our own decisions and to run our own life. We have the power to change our lives and that happens by where we place our beliefs. Instead of chasing life, let life chase you. Instead of wishing to be rescued, rescue yourself. We are meant to be our own creators and when we create our own solutions, life chases us. Life forms around the path we create for ourselves. What do you want for your life? What do you believe for your life? Do you let outside circumstances dictate that. Or do you see what surrounds you in your life and decide what you want to change about it? Your path forward is to learn to connect with what you desire and to focus on attaining that. Take time to meditate to open space for your spirit guides to connect with you. Ask them questions to help you solve your problems. They are there for you, waiting to help. Another way to start driving your life is to write in a journal. Just write down what you are feeling, what you need help with, what you are experiencing each day. When you get focused on writing intuitive answers start to flow through you. They may come as you are writing, or later. But they will come if you open yourself to receive. This is a great time for spiritual connection to others & more importantly, yourself to bring balance to your life.

The now card – Balancing Act, we are working on finding the balance in our present life & letting go of the wounds of our history that interfere with our path forward. It is time to acknowledge the stories you are telling others and yourself. Right now as we work with the influences of the planets and astrological signs, we have Venus (Love) in Libra (balance, harmony, justice, fairness) with Jupiter (abundance) present. This is a perfect time to go within and ask to see what it is to know about finding balance & harmony in your life for healing so that you can move on to creating a new direction or improving the direction you are headed. When you feel truth inside yourself about what you are doing, how you are spending your time and how you are acting, you are on the right path. When you feel ill at ease, like something isn’t right, it is risky & you may fail or life is not working out, you need to go within and connect with your heart and find what feels right. Identify when you are being motivated by what you have experienced, been told or scared into believing. Change your thoughts and emotions to positive confidence. Trust your inspirations and act on them. Right now, the influence of Jupiter has added to the mix and that is about creating abundance. Given the positioning, it is important to focus on the grandness of your efforts as you can be inspired to be a bit over the top in your offerings of love, friendship or good will. Find the balance! What is motivating you moving forward? Make it balanced and truthful to the heart and for the good of all. Let your inspirations lead and life will follow. But be mindful of creating balance in your actions. Try neutral emotionally for a while. That means listening to your heart, trusting your instincts that feel clear and true and then acting.

We close on “Intention”. If you are having trouble finding balance or letting go of the victim, down on your luck stories you are telling yourself & others, be honest and ask yourself why you need to hang on to this. What is it giving you, that you don’t believe you can create for yourself in a more productive way. Are you unable to ask for what you want or need? Do you have trouble accepting help? We can feel very restricted because of the thought/emotional patterns hardship creates within ourselves. It is time to let go of the chaos and conflict you see in your outer world and go within to create peace and empowerment. You have the power to change your life by connecting to your inner desires. Attach those desires to love and take some action that results in the good for all involved or affected. Visualize what you want, think of how you will feel being in this place in your life of fulfilled desires. And don’t judge yourself for the desires you want. Make sure it is true to your heart, what you truly think is the best thing for your life moving forward, not conformed to what your present circumstances are showing you. Write it down and take an action, one small step to start. There will always be chaos in this world. But to separate yourself from life because of it is to disempower your life. If your present circumstances are not working, you are not a prisoner to it. Get creative and decide a new way for yourself. Be aware of the road blocks in your mind that may come up that prove you are not capable or not worthy. Start small and do what you can now & intend for the rest to follow as you start. Be willing to make adjustments as the need arises by changing your limitations to aspirations & actions toward your desires. If you intend true to your heart, there will be synchronicities, serendipities & unknown opportunities. Maybe even pleasant surprises! Stay present in the now, trust what you desire is possible and have faith it will happen! Make life chase you, to form your reality around your creativity & desires. Peel though the layers of wounds and create a new empowerment of fearless fulfillment and dreams come true. And don’t talk yourself out of it along the way!

Self-Healing

Since I was in my mid-20’s I have been working on self-healing. It was the physical pain that caught my attention and the recognition I needed change to heal. I discovered Louise L. Hay very early in that journey. She focused on mental causes for pain & illness & how to change your thinking to heal as well as the importance of self-love. She published several books and did tireless work helping people to understand the mental patterns within themselves were the root cause of illness. She said through her own process, she learned she had to stop blaming people and circumstances outside herself for her own pain and misfortune. After all, your actions in life are motivated by how you think, feel and believe. Not only did she show people that repetitive negative thought patterns create pain and illness, but she also taught them use of positive affirmations to replace the negative patterns to heal.

As a young adult I started to have physical body pain and could never find a way to heal it. It was mostly neck, shoulders and back pain. When I discovered Louise L. Hay’s philosophy, I began looking at it in a different way. At times, my neck pain would become unbearable, before I would start to pay attention. At that point, it motivated me to listen to what I was telling myself & note when it would trigger the pain to understand coinciding affects I was manifesting. I was able to stop the pain by changing my thoughts to more positive beliefs and began to understand how I had created my pain. Depending on when you try to change course with your situation, you may have a web of thoughts, emotions & actions to change, but starting with recognizing your thoughts that trigger the symptoms begins the shift. You also have to commit to let go of the attachments that justify what you believe to be true to be able to make the shift. Sometimes that requires going inside yourself to process incidents, recognize where the thought originated & recognizing how this thought pattern serves your life presently. It takes commitment to change the way of thinking and believing to see results. When you constantly think negatively it triggers all kinds of things in the body physically, how you respond to situations and the actions you take or don’t take in your life that contribute to the problem. You may have done severe damage to yourself by a decision & acted on it in your past that creates your present reality. When you forgive yourself and change that within yourself, there can be healing.

I am sure you are not a stranger to the reality of stress on the body. Not only do you trigger body chemistry, but you trigger energy to continue to manifest this reality of pain/illness. You feed this reality for yourself and reconfirm it when it serves your beliefs. It is always good to recognize what it is you are getting out of your pain. How does it serve you in spite of the pain or illness. What would you prefer instead? Our body has a defense system to try to help us survive in flight or fight mode, but over time, our body falls to illness trying to sustain that lifestyle of stress. When I do energy balancing on people I can hear what their body tells me to help the person process what is stuck. It is a mutual dialogue between the person, their body & myself. People also receive communication from their body during the session as well and learn to do inner-self dialogue. Sometimes physical misalignments have to be physically corrected & you have to change to maintain the alignment.

Albert Einstein said: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” It is the same with energy as Shawn Leonard pointed out during a private seminar recently: “You can’t change the same level of energy with the same level of energy. Remember we are all spirit, just living a human experience.” To make true change, you have to let go and aspire to a higher consciousness of unconditional love of self and others. Let go of blame, anger, helplessness, etc. Take responsibility for your part in situations that play out in your life. On some level, there is some responsibility you can grasp if you really open yourself to find it. Even if it is a just lack of knowing. Love yourself & love others for the good of all, because energy attracts energy. By making improvements with your own health, it helps to shift the energy to empower others to do the same. Remember, we are all connected & the new influence of your changed energy then exists for us all to become empowered, it has an affect. This is just another example of how we affect our environment by our actions and energy. It is sort of a human super power at our fingertips for the good of all!

The photo on this post is a reference guide by Louise L Hay for thoughts associated with different bodily conditions/illness that illustrates the thoughts & affirmations associated with several medical conditions. It is one of my first self-help books that I still use today and I am sure you can tell it is very used & dated. Thankfully I just reordered a new edition. Below I have given you a couple examples from the book:

Problem: Headache – Probable Cause: Invalidating the self. Self-criticism. Fear. – New Thought Pattern: I love and approve of myself. I see myself and what I do with eyes of love. I am safe.

Problem: Indigestion – Probable Cause: Gut level fear, dread, anxiety. Griping or grunting. – New Thought Pattern: I digest and assimilate all new experiences peacefully and joyously.

There are many healing resources available in this world to help with self-healing that are more organic and capable of producing real change. I am not one to turn to medication unless it is a situation of necessity, as I feel they are a mask and not the solution. I don’t condone medication and realize it is necessary in certain cases. But ultimately, I am after the root cause, not the passivity of a convenient relief, as ultimately you are pushing the problem deeper into the body moving toward a chronic, irreparable dis-ease. Sometimes medication can provide a temporary relief until you can heal yourself. But feeling the pain helps to undo the puzzle to figure out how you can balance the trigger/effect. These are my beliefs of course that I have used to navigate my life & health. I too am a student.

Let’s see what the cards say! I am using the “Oracle of the 7 Energies” deck by Collette Baron-Reid. The card I drew is: “Wishing Upon a Star.” The essential meaning of this card is: Intentions based on your desires and aspirations, the act of consciously committing to a vision, sacrificing something of value, gambling on yourself, trusting that dreams can become reality, the importance of daydreams.” The book goes on to say, “Perhaps the point all along is not how something can happen, but the power of wishing and intending.” I say, this is all so important that no matter what gets you down in life, know there is a solution. If you intend for a solution, you will be so blown away by the magic from the universe when you open yourself with optimism to see the answers. We often let ourselves believe in disappointment & failure over the true belief in the power of optimism & success. You lose the race when you give up. Ask for help at this moment & believe. We have many thoughts and emotions that keep us from believing we can attain the end result of solutions. Recognize each and every one of those walls, tricks and patterns within yourself that try to prevent you from getting to your success & replace them with “I can, I will, I am.” Healing is like driving to a party with only the address & no directions in a unfamiliar place. You have to trust your instinct, stop to talk to people along the way to get advice and to look for land markers to know where to turn until you reach your destination. Having an end goal in sight, asking for help & trusting spirit to help when you are well intended and from a space of love, is true magic and should be a way of life to find your true path in life. Trust & give it a try with a loving heart!
