August 29-September 4, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

“I’m in charge” is the mantra for this week!  We start off with the chance to bring healing and empowerment to everything we do, from daily interactions with others to how we think about ourselves.  You are the boss of how you give and receive energy, and how you express yourself, and can decide when, where and how in every moment.  The middle of the week is about starting fresh with this realization of your power.  Have faith in yourself, pray for guidance, and let your sensitive nature guide you.  Your intuition is strong and can help you take a grounded stance in how you present yourself to the world.  The weekend shows feelings of safety and feeling lovingly united with others if you allow it.  You have nothing to worry about if you focus on the blessings that bring you feelings of love and protection.

September 2016 Monthly Tarot Forecast

Brought to you from the north shores of Lake Superior (Sorry if the sound and camera work isn’t the best!)

This is a month of introspection and sitting back, but that doesn’t mean good things aren’t coming your way! We move past a period of mental stress and get to experience some positive revelation about ourselves. This is a great month of helpful support from others, as well as coming together in partnership and healing from difficult situations. This is a month where we get to lay a lot of emotional foundation that will support us in the months to come. We reach for higher and better experiences in our every day lives, and this will energetically lead the way for us to tackle bigger and more life-altering experiences. By the end of the month you will feel more capable and independent to look at options, feel whimsical, and have more energy to do what excites you.

September 2016 Guidance with Archangel Michael

September is always a month where we are anticipating the change of seasons.  In the Northern Hemisphere, we watch summer wind down as we wait for autumn to approach, and in the Southern Hemisphere the promise of Spring is just around the corner.  The change does not happen overnight, but is a slow metamorphosis, and in our minds we are preparing for the changes to come.

This is how I am feeling about this September’s particular energy.  It’s a month where we may feel as if we are waiting for things to change, and mentally remain quite focused on that.  With most of the month being draped over with a Mercury Retrograde, it will be an introspective month where we can review plans and reflect peacefully on our lives.  I will say that no matter what is happening energetically, we are always our own Masters; only you can know and decide when it is best to do–and not to do–any action.  

 

Lake SuperiorI took a day trip to Lake Superior for some hiking along the rocky north shores, an activity that always brings me rejuvenation and meditation.  After several hours I sat down for a break, and Archangel Michael came through, the Chief of Archangels who provides courage, protection and confidence.  He showed me an image of birds flapping their wings to fly higher and higher until they meet a current of air upon which they can glide with ease.  He said this is a metaphor for many of our efforts right now: we are working hard to fly higher and higher until we find a current that we can effortlessly float on.  

Here is Archangel Michael’s Message:

Greetings, I am Archangel Michael, and Dear Ones, you have come so far!  You are yet so preoccupied with the ticking of the clock.  You have all the time you need to do everything.  You can get what you want, but the getting is not your priority.  You have an impression that it is, but listen closely: it is the doing that you truly desire.  It is the experience that you crave.

This is not a time period to make life-altering plans; it is a time for you to discover another layer of your desires.  What I mean is this “quiet” period you will experience most of this month will build up the action-oriented part of you.  You will remember, as your Higher Self already knows, that the experiencing (which is always reflected in your feelings and mood) is what you deeply wish for and love, not the end of an action or the obtaining of something.

Therefore, to get your conscious self aligned with your subconscious self, practice this experiencing part of you this month.  If you feel unhappy with an experience, you know that you are not living your deepest desire and your Highest Experience.  Once you know that, and once you are in touch with that, ask yourself in that moment, “How can I live my highest possible experience right now?” and follow the immediate guidance that comes to you.  

Practicing this in what you call “everyday moments” will prepare you for “bigger” experiences ahead.  Remember you are protected.  I am here.  I am always here, ready to instill you with the courage you need.  Do not rush, for there is nothing to which you need to rush; everything is here and now, and everything is love.  I am with you always.

As you can see, Archangel Michael’s advice is short and sweet.  To live better and brighter, in every moment there is always an opportunity to “experience higher”…even if it means slightly shifting an action, an attitude, or a few words.  If we get in the habit of shifting, we get in the habit of embracing our power.  Have a wonderful month, and much love to you all!

August 22-28, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

Purpose, freedom and strength are the themes of this week.  We can discern what is right for us by listening to our intuition, which is strong this week.  Some are reaping rewards of the seeds they’ve sown, and some are figuring out what seeds to plant.  The key here is to get in touch with your inner being and decide what you wish to experience, trusting that the ‘how’ will come when it is ready.  Also keep an eye out for how relationships energize you, and which drain you and dive you into conflict.  You can decide where to put your energy and how.  This is also a week of freeing yourself from any emotional experiences that have weighed heavily on you.  You can rely on your own strength to give yourself freedom from anything that has a hold on  you.  Overall, this is a week where you will strongly feel the desire to expand, and experience and express the agape of our universe.

August 15-21, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

This is a very physical and earthy week!  It’s important, first of all, to take care of your physical well-being and strength so you don’t get worn out, especially if you’ve been feeling fatigued lately.  The beginning of the week is about finding balance between giving and receiving, and trusting yourself to make the right choices and investments.  You might even receive some gift of generosity, or have the opportunity to do it for someone else.  The middle of the week asks you to continue to have faith in yourself, and let you blossom one step at a time.  Keep your arms open to the possibilities, and know that you are independent and self-sustaining.  As we approach the weekend we may have lots of inspiration and guidance as to taking action steps, but it could overwhelm you, so take it easy and do it one step at a time.  Overall, this is a week to get in touch with your manifestation powers and amazing strength.  Enjoy the process, and let go of worry; you are on the right path.

August 8-14, 2016 Weekly Spiritual Messages

This week is centered in growth.  Use your feelings as a barometer to acknowledge how you are experiencing something or someone.  If you are feeling tough or negative emotions, allow those feelings to rise from the surface so you can detox from them.  Link them to memories from the past so you can deconstruct any blocks that are holding you back.  The beginning of the week may feel chaotic, rushed and exciting.  Stay centered to receive the best experience possible.  We then move into nurturing and focusing on inspiration.  What is the best way you can feel, and how can you feel it?  Allow inspiration to guide you to actions you can take to get the best possible experience for yourself in that moment.  The weekend shows blessings and stability.  As you release the importance of past memories and situations you cannot control, you put the power back into your hands.  This week will be beneficial for everyone in terms of healing, expanding your awareness, and being aligned with your intuition.

Energy Insights for August 2016

A recent post on I made on my instagram provided some insights into the current energy we are feeling right now, and I wanted to address this a little more.  You might be feeling restlessness and exhaustion, agitation battling motivation, and desire combatting with low confidence.  We want to proceed but we just don’t know how, all the while dealing with circumstances that appear to prevent us from moving forward.  In short, we feel right and not right simultaneously, as if we are seeing clearly, yet all we are seeing clearly is fog.  

What I see is that we are currently purging emotions from our physical experience that are not aligned with our higher selves.  Our consciousness continues to expand.  More and more we are coming to understand that we are not here to learn, but to remember who we truly are.  We are here to experience our True Selves in physical form, because the physical is such a glorious way to experience and express Ourselves.  If we came here on this Earth with the knowledge of Who We Are already, it would defy the purpose of being in the physical dimension in the first place.  We could not experience Ourselves fully if we were not able to create ourselves anew in each given moment as we are now.

 

Right now the energy is leading us to greater expansion.  We are driven by desires to physically experience, but these desires have changed from surface comforts and pleasures to taking a deeper meaning.  We don’t just want a nice house, a loving relationship, or a purposeful career; we desire to experience the highest form of joy and love in all these things.  We desire the feelings themselves, as it is the feeling that is the experience.  Our souls are always in search of this.  Our souls have the knowledge already of love, but having knowledge is inherent in us; it is not why we are here.  We are here for the experience; we are here for the feelings.  Feeling love is to feel Ourselves; experiencing love is to experience Ourselves.

Therefore, all this instability you could be experiencing is about helping you choose.  You cannot choose your Highest Self, or your Highest Experience, if you have nothing to choose from.  How do we choose then?  You must first take away the power of anything undesirable in your life.  

 

This leads us to the current energy right now: It is time to sort through emotions.  Past issues are showing up in present circumstances.  Why?  So we can release them.  Everything we are experiencing now is stemmed from the past.  It is all tied together, acting as a signal that it is time to heal from these issues.  Your soul can remember every circumstance where you felt hurt, depressed, controlled, helpless, etc.  The difference, as you experience these emotions again, is that now you are prepared to heal them.  

How do we do this?  First of all, remember that you know yourself better now; you are far more self-aware.  Your feelings act as a barometer; they tell you when you are not experiencing your Highest Self.  Notice when you are having unpleasant feelings; they tell you when you are not experiencing your True Nature.

 

Then, let these unpleasant emotions rise to the surface.  Let yourself confront them, and connect them to any past situations where you also experienced them, like pulling apart a sweater to see where it all began.  Let it all unravel before you.  This will require some time and thought (meditation, journal writing, or talking to yourself about it all helps), but as you continue to do so, you deconstruct an entire wall that was preventing you from moving forward.  When we deconstruct something, it loses its power.  It returns to the Earth and transmutes into the Cosmos.  It loses its importance and its power over you.  

 

When this process is complete, you have freedom.  You are able to put intention into experiencing love in everything you do, say, see, touch, smell, hear and feel.  By making this intention, inspiration soon follows and you are able to take action, putting the power back into your hands to physically experience your True Self.  

You may have to do this process over and over again, and the trick is to allow it to happen.  We are longing to do something about Who We Are, and each moment we are stepping closer to that.  We can experience Ourselves in every moment, but first we have to acknowledge that which is not a part of our True Selves and let that go.  We can certainly be grateful for these unpleasant experiences, because they are helping us get closer to knowing how to experience true and perfect love, and our True and Perfect Selves.  

 

As you move forward in your present, and heal from your past, remember to take your time.  Find what works for you, and allow the process to unfold naturally.  Each day you will see a little clearer, hear a little louder, and know a little better how to experience the most love possible, which is what You are all about.  You are letting in the light, one window at a time.
