How Dynamic We Are

             As you may know, I have a “day” job.  One of my tasks, pretty much on an hourly basis (if not more often), is giving my opinion.

             Travelers ask what I think.  They ask about the campus.  They ask about local sights and events.  They ask me, and this is the number one question, where I think they should eat dinner.

             I have two quick answers.  Because: distance from our hotel, and quality.  Generally the people asking me this question have high expectations.

             I don’t let them down.  I deliver.  And that’s because these two restaurants, which I always recommend, never let ME down.

             Our message today has to do with tuning in to, and following along with, those instincts we’re all born with.  It’s about being ourselves, our sacred selves.

             The Universe would like to remind us that we are powerful beings.  We have strength.  We have compassion.  We have an inner knowing.  We have

 Spiritual Fortitude

             To honour the fact that we all come from Source, and will return back to Source, we need to remember our Divine Value.  When I make those recommendations, I am confident. I know the food and service will be remarkable, in a good and healing way.  The experience with be positive.

             In other aspects of my life?  I falter.  I fall down.  I waver.  I fail.  I am flawed.  But in the areas where I know?  I stand strong.  I am bold.

             This encourages me.  It helps me to help those who ask for my assistance, or my guidance.  Or, my recommendations.

             The perfect validation has appeared on our (still incomplete) card altar.  Sadly, the guidebook went missing in this move.  So, I’m going to take my own advice and type out what comes through me, with confidence and strength of knowing.

“Life Review

Archangel Jeremiel:

‘Take inventory of your life, and resolve to change or heal anything that is unbalanced.’ “

             It can be simple.  We make it more complicated.  Where there is negativity, remove it.  Where there is unhappiness, let the sorrow go.  Where we find ourselves uncomfortable, move on.

             It might be a VERY difficult choice.  But when we look back, do we WANT to say we spent all of that time suffering?  Or do we want to enjoy all the moments that we can?

is to say that I know you’re curious.  Here are the two restaurants,

Cafe Soriah and Davis.  Both names, clickable links to their websites.

             Last night, I was treated to a gorgeous meal at Soriah, made (specifically for me!) by the owner and executive chef himself.  It was so amazing, I cried.  He was beyond kind and generous; the food and service  were extraordinary.






             We all know today’s card.  And we all know today’s message.  It’s kind of a Little Engine That Could story.

             It’s absolutely about our own inner strength.  And how even when we have burdens and hardships and difficulties (and, like the illustration, missing parts),  we CAN get up and get going.

Gently Forward

             We have a core of power that we sometimes don’t realize is there.  Or, we don’t realize it until we truly need to use it.

             Our strength is limitless, it comes from Source; we can draw on it in times of need and in times of plenty.  We only have to decide, “now” and it will be there.  We are so very much stronger than we give ourselves credit for.

             Today the Universe is reminding us to keep going, keep walking, keep calling on that inner strength.  Never be like the other figure, never cower in fear or let the ego rule.

Five of Pentacles

             We are being reminded that we CAN take care of, not only ourselves, but our loved ones, too.  We do have that power!  We ARE that strong

             However, we are also being reminded that we don’t need to just shove our way along.  We don’t need to run or push hard.  The most basic and simple steps are called for.  Just gently go forward.  No rush, we have all the time we need.

             Additionally, it helps to remember that we’re not doing this alone.  We have support.  We have back-up.  We have protection and assistance.  Always.

             As we head in to the new week and the new month and the new season, it’ll be a good idea to keep in mind how well we’re doing.  And how much we’ve already accomplished.  Travel forward and travel gently, my friends.

“Our whole spiritual transformation

brings us to the point where we realize that in our own being, 

we are enough.”

             We are ALWAYS enough.  And sometimes, if we seem to be TOO MUCH?  Well.   Isn’t that also just how it is.


Aimed and Authorized

             What’s the opposite of vitally engaged and lively?  Whatever it is (and seriously, I can’t even be bothered to throw my thesaurus at it), that’s me today.

             Does it stop me from banging out this message?  No.  No, it does not.  My (entirely unpaid) work is more important than this debilitating state of ennui in which I seem to be residing.

             How very ironic, too.  Because this one is focused on:


             It’s about the way we transform our very being with attitude and authority.  We are able to move freely, being this dynamic person of self-authority.

             Every choice we make is an action, creating our future.  We have that kind of strength, we really do.  Even when we don’t put it to any sort of good use.

             We are spiritually enriched creatures of enormous reserve, like huge heart-shaped batteries.  When our source of energy feels like it’s running low, we can plug in, recharge, and move forward.

             On our card altar, this is where I was directed today.  In a stroke of supreme validation, we can absolutely see how important our empowerment truly is.

             (Also, how absolutely adorable and inspiring is this illustration?!)


Intention  ~  22  ~ 

‘Deliberate.  Clear intentions have the power to change our world.’

Your objectives will be fulfilled at this time.  Inspired  intentions are like magic arrows shot into the sky.

The universe is bringing you a gift, showing you that you are hitting your mark.  Recognize that you’re not the one who has to do all the work, however; others help you co-create reality.

You connect to the power of your intention, sending it out into the field, then allow for synchronicity to work its magic.  Perhaps the good intentions of others will inspire you to send out beautiful ones of your own.

Own the life you want to lead, and live deliberately, with clarity and detachment.”

Go With What You Know

             When we are in the middle of Mercury’s retrograding phase (and hoo baby, are we ever!), it’s much more peaceful if we don’t try to accomplish anything new or challenging.

             A better idea is to stick with (as Doreen says) all the “re” words (recharge, retreat, rejuvenate, review, repair, revive, restore, recuperate, refresh).

Staying with what’s comfortable.

             Because right now, like that recent Home message, the key is to keep those risks at a minimum.  No use sticking our necks out while the chance for decapitation is so high.

             There’s simply no need for making any extra uncertain (or even careless) moves.  Especially when we know that we’ve got plenty of time to be spontaneous later on.

             And, within our regular rotation around the card altar right now, we’ve been handed a very nice validation.  Staying safe never has to mean giving up our strength.

“Empowerment  ~

‘You’re more powerful than you realize.

It’s safe for you to be powerful!’

This card confirms that your inner power wants to surface.  You’ll use this power appropriately, and you are incapable of abusing it.  Your true friends and the people who truly love you, will be happy that you’ve taken your power back.

Empowerment means that you are no longer willing to see yourself as a victim in any way.  It means letting go of all blame with respect to other people, past conditions, or present circumstances.  Know that you can be powerful and gentle simultaneously – and still be very effective.

Affirm frequently:

‘It is safe for me to be powerful!  I accept my gift of power to be used in the service of light and love.’

Then, enjoy the shifts you see around you.  Instead of worrying what others think about you, use your power to make the world a better place.

You may never feel self-conscious again!”

music matters

A state of Washington special that nether of us had ever seen before.

             And continues with a new New Mexico, two New Yorks (thinking of you, East Coast), Tennessee (and then, another Tennessee), one who got past us, a singular Nebraska, Florida, and Minnesota.

Making It Through, Intentionally

             Even though I have many piercings and tattoos, I am not great with pain.  Or discomfort, even.  And I certainly don’t tolerate unpleasantness well.

             On the other hand, I’m very focused on being a better person/getting better, helping as many people as I can, and overall, just reminding any-and-all-who-I-happen-to-come-across of the concepts which help us all.  That, all of it, can be painful, at times.

             What I was shown this morning (as scenes for sharing), reminded me of mystics who walk on hot coals with no physical harm.  They do this for spiritual enlightenment, and for similar personal reasons, like mine listed above.

             When I flipped our daily draw, my original thoughts were confirmed about this message.  The suggestion is that we pay attention, and set aside small concerns.

Step through the flames and out the other side.

             We all face challenges, difficulties, in this journey.  This is a fact, and it has a reason.  The process works this way so that we are better able to learn, to understand, and to feel compassion.   No matter the circumstances or specifics of the “suffering.”  Because that part of it doesn’t matter.

             We know that all will be well.  WE will be well.  Even if we have to/need to/choose to walk through the flames in order to reach the other side.

             And on our card altar right now, we’ve been gifted with guidance which will help in precise accomplishments, healing, and generally getting us where we need to be.

angel messages of manifestation

“Crystal-Clear Intentions  ~

Archangel Michael:

‘Be clear about what you desire, and focus upon it with unwavering faith.’

Additional Message:

After praying for guidance, be bold enough to admit what you truly desire.  Know that you (along with everyone else) deserve the best of everything, in all ways.

Prosperity and abundance are (Mr & Mrs) God’s wishes for everyone.  You stake your claim on  your share of the inheritance by forming a clear mental picture of your desires.  Allow yourself to imagine that this desire has already manifested, and experience the emotional and physical feelings of your manifested desire.

Don’t worry how the desire will manifest – the infinite creativity of the Creator will bring it to you in very clever ways.  Simply follow any inner guidance to take steps to co-create this Divine desire, and allow yourself to receive good as it comes  your way.’

Working with Archangel Michael:

Michael’s aura is royal blue mixed with tinges of royal purple.  When he’s nearby, you may see cobalt-blue sparkles of light.   The crystal stone sugalite is aligned with Archangel Michael’s energy.  If  you wear a sugalite pendant, you  may find yourself channeling profound and loving messages from Michael when you speak.”
