December 2016 Monthly Tarot Forecast

Inner peace, nourishment and change are pumping through our veins this month!  A big shift will occur within us, and this will be reflected soon in our environment.  We are leaving behind the insecurities of the past year, and embracing a lighter, more empowered sense of being.  Be in touch with your intuitive senses and guidance this month, and movement will happen.  Release doubt and indecisiveness, and instill yourself with confidence.  Inner reflection is required to move upward, and energies of support, creativity and vision surround us.  Make peace with the moment and where you are at this moment in time as you get in tune with your higher frequencies.  Focus, drive and motivation will fill us by the end of the month as we embrace new energy without attachment, and simply go with the flow.

December 2016 Spiritual Messages with Archangel Michael

The end of the year plays a big part in setting the tone for the year to come.  2016 has had many jolting surprises and turn of events, challenging both groups and individuals to bring forth their most raw emotions and encounter an enormous amount of stressful energy.  December will continue some of this energy, but mostly so we can resolve that which is still lingering around us in order to step into 2017 a lot lighter than before, and far more empowered.

December is your time to lay the groundwork for becoming a pathmaker.  Make time for deep reflection, or you will enter into 2017 just as muddled as before.  We may want change, to find a new direction, to discover something new within the familiar, or to release something old.  Whatever you are feeling within yourself lately is about ignition, meant to get your motor started so you can finally start driving.  

Take advantage of December, which has a “let’s get settled before we get moving” energy, by going deep within yourself and asking the ‘why’ behind your feelings, your dreams, your motivations, your unmotivations, your contempt, your blame, and how you think about yourself.  Allow the universe to send you the information you need to resolve your internal issues, and feed you new inspiration each time you self-reflect.  Remember the universe ALWAYS answers.  

 

Archangel Michael came through for this month’s message to close out the year.  He lends us courage, strength and motivation whenever we call on him, as well as protection and a boost in our faith.  He’s a very clear communicator, and his connection with us here on Earth is much stronger than any other archangel I’ve ever felt.  He likes to be direct, and has a mischievous sense of humor.   Call on him to amplify your strength, your access to inner wisdom, your sense of humor and, of course, for guidance.

Here is Archangel Michael’s Message:

 Dear ones, I come to you now to make you aware of your light bodies, for every bit of you is made of light, of frequency, which all flows to your heart.  Your heart was the first physical manifestation of yourself, and your heart is your battery, to which all energy flows towards and away from, conducting energy to all other parts of you.  

You have spent much time bringing IN light, allowing emotional pain to surface so you can bring awareness and healing to that which has decreased your auric field, but as more light flows to you at a faster pace, you are now shifting to being in tune with the frequency of light, not just bringing it into the world.  You are learning to work with the light, to flow with your highest frequency, leading to joy, service and creation.

While you spend this time preparing for another block of time you call a year, you will find it necessary to to go within and simply get into the frequency of the light you are conducting throughout your energetic and physical bodies.  As you do so, your frequency will get higher, putting you into a state of clearly receiving your Divine guidance.  You do not need to reject your material world to get to this place, but rather a new age of intertwining the mystic senses with the Western material world is being birthed.

 Togetherness is your next cycle in every sense, as you are combining material items and your spiritual self of your personal world together, and you will see more togetherness in communities and between others as you move through your journey.  When you find yourself having trouble manifesting, sit and breathe in the frequencies of higher dimensional light that is coming to you, and tune yourselves to these frequencies.  This will put you in touch with your true, highest emotions, and unveil any lower frequencies that have been holding you back.  

You may be experiencing a rapid uncovering of lower energetic negativity, so that you may bring it to the surface and allow it to transmute finally so that you have room and space to be in your highest frequency.  With each stage of your life you are ascending to a higher level, and you cannot skip levels!  You must take your journey as it comes, and the more you resist each stage, the longer you shall stay in that stage.  However, you may rapidly progress through each level simply by bringing conscious awareness to where you are at the moment.  Bring your inner eyes to your current situation, feelings and thoughts, allow yourself to see all that is within you and around you, and simply by doing this you are moving yourself up towards a higher frequency.  Acknowledgement is active release and ascension upwards.  

You are focused on what you call big steps right now, and I say to you to keep the focus on simplicity.  Do not invite negativity into your auric field by focusing on a task that seems overwhelming to you in order to move onwards and upwards.   All steps are simple, but this may be difficult for you to see, so I invite you to focus on that which makes you feel like you are moving forward and that which is simple to attain, and everything it involves from the process to the task itself.  

As you move through your steps, the anger you feel towards others and the grudges you behold will fade quickly.  Grudges are a form of your judgment, and judgment will always hold you in a place of non motion, for you are bringing the attention off of your own growth and onto the growth of others.  As you focus on your experience and bringing up your frequency, you are automatically uniting yourself with the higher frequencies of others, helping them to grow and evolve as well by putting more attention and focus on the higher frequencies of light that are around you all.  

Step into your own light this month, and simply allow yourself to flow freely.  

November 2016 Tarot Forecast

Despite busy and stressful events and energy happening, and not a lot of resolution coming from outside sources, we can maintain our own energy by focusing on what motivates us.  Connect deeply to your desires and move forward with inspiration.  Call upon the universe for help, and for your own power to easily flow through you.  Expect to receive many signs, both externally and internally, that will give you inspiration and confirmation about your path.  You may need to leave things behind, and will be have deep inner truths revealed to you about yourself and the attachments you have.  It is a good month to let go of old patterns that no longer serve you, as this month is about connecting to your authenticity and finding a path that makes you feel connected to your true self.  As you sift through the heaviness, put lightness and laughter as much as possible into yourself and what you do, as this will help you easily work with energy and move through any challenges.

November 2016 Spiritual Messages with Archangel Uriel

In November we start off with a new moon, marking a new cycle.  This cycle feels tumultuous, with things moving quickly one week, and then moving slowly another week.  Emotions might feel erratic, and your emotional investment in something might be high one minute, and low the next.  

This will all be due to uncovering truths and connecting deeply to our authenticity.  We have mostly been focused on our individuality, but what I’m seeing is a shift towards collectiveness.  The unique thing about this shift, which has been taking place slowly over the last 10 years, is that the collectiveness is coming from the embracement of our individual and unique selves.  The more we connect with our individuality, the more we connect with others who are doing the same, thereby coming together to collectively shine our light on the planet.

November is a good time to be open to the possibilities.  Be ready to let go of what you thought was true, because the process of making assumptions is becoming outdated more and more quickly, and truth through heart (rather than mind) connection is growing faster and faster.  It will be important to laugh and have fun this month as well!  The more lightness you bring to everything, the more positive results you will get!  

Archangel Uriel brings us a message for this month.  He is the Archangel of ideas, and his name means “the Light of God.”  He is warm and sunny, and I often experience a light and rich yellow color when he enters my space.  He also is a “get down to business” angel; he’s very direct and gentle, and will tell you anything you need to know at that moment in time.  He brings you solutions, next steps to take, and new ideas to investigate.  

Here is his message:

Greetings, I am Archangel Uriel, and I am here to tell you, or rather to give you that confirmation you so deeply desire, that yes, you are on the right path.  For indeed, dear ones, you are never on the wrong path.  This is impossible, as you are creators of all you experience, and thus can never experience anything that is not created, and all you create is right and true.  

The thing that will guide you most is connecting with your desires.  Too often you let the logistics of a situation slow you down.  This is not to say that the details and practical steps are unnecessary; indeed they are.  I am stating that, however, once you start thinking about the logistics, your very desire diminishes, and you do not even take the first steps.  

Dear ones, I know you are exhausted; you are weary.  Weariness is due to feeling disconnected from your true self.  Your true self always wants to be doing and activating something within you; your true self wants to grow, to create movement, to create a song in your heart.  Therefore, when you feel weary, give yourself the proper break you need to not only rest your body, but to connect once again with your inner being, so that you may feel inspiration once more.  Know that this inspiration is always within you, and it merely depends whether you hear it or not.  

As you move closer together with others, this time you are not losing your individual self.  You are finding more than ever that what makes you a unique individual makes you a powerful collective.  You can be connecting with others in a way you have not experienced yet, but that many are experiencing now.  The coming together has been happening, and it will be happening more and more.  It is coming together naturally, as it needs to be, and all you need to do is continue to express yourself and connect with your inner desires.  

This is a month to maintain your spark, your motivation, your energy.  You are, you could say, evening out, as the mighty flares die down and a steady flame burns within you.  It is time for you to figure things out, but do not push to do so; simply allow the energy to flow through you, and let the process occur naturally and at your own pace.  The ideas are coming; the feelings are there.  Simply know when to sit still and listen within, and when to put those thoughts into the external.  

I ask you to open the eyes of your heart this month, and listen.  The truer you are to yourself, the easier this shall become, as you are moving towards more acceptance and togetherness, and away from rejection.  There may still be opposition and rejection to your true self, as there are those who are not yet ready; but the transition is smoother and smoother.  Do not doubt yourself; do not doubt the messages you receive.  All is good and all is perfect as it is.  

As you expand your boundaries, as you expand your hearts and minds, you expand your abundance and opportunity.  Laugh, love and listen.  You are done putting the powers of decision into leaders; you are being your own leaders, so continue to do so in your individual life and you will move forward in love this way.  Call on me for guidance and next steps, and know that I am there even before you call on me to deliver that which you need.  I have known all of you forever, and I love you.  

 

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!

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.

August 2016 Guidance with Archangel Barachiel

 

Now more than ever I sense we are ending a cycle that began for us in 2012, which has been emphatic in revealing truths, uncovering layers and reaching a higher consciousness.  We have had to let go and release over and over, get in touch with our highest truths while balancing our egos, and work on being authentic in thought and action.  2016 is a fire year, meaning it has been about purification, and every person has experienced this energy differently and uniquely.  We still may be experiencing cleansing, healing and releasing the rest of the year; as August approaches, however, I am sensing a shift in energy to prepare us for 2017, which is about new beginnings.  It is like preparing soil before you plant seeds, and this month we will think about what types of seeds we wish to plant as we continue to nourish the soil in which to plant them.  

 

Archangel Barachiel comes through this month, who is the archangel of blessings.  (He was completely unheard of by me, and I was delighted to get to know him for the first time.)  What a character!  He is bright, funny, and full of sass.  When I channel, I invite the energy-being into my personal space and aura, and I can physically sense them enter it and sit with me.  Not this guy!  He was by my side, behind me, above me, and zipping all around my living room.  He couldn’t sit still, and was flying in playful circles, much like a dolphin in the ocean.  He gave me lots of yellow and orange energy, full of inner power, joy and creativity.  

 

Barachiel is also the chief of the guardian angels, and you can ask him for blessings and assistance through your own guardian angels.  Invite him into your life to uplift you, bring you towards a successful path, and also to tickle your funny bone.  (I could feel that he loves jokes and humor!)  He doesn’t just help bring blessings into your life, but also helps you recognize your current blessings, amplifying your vibrational state and helping you attract joyful circumstances.  

I feel this month we can look forward to more energy and connecting with others.  All types of relationships can be wonderfully nurtured this month, and we can take action based off of what we have learned so far.  Confidence issues will be addressed, as we are guided to stop criticizing ourselves and focus instead of the inspiration behind our creative thoughts.  

 

Lots of people are wanting to take action right now, and are already doing so with various results.  This month’s energy is going to help us with this desire to make things happen, and Barachiel mostly talks about how to bring about the most positive action possible with clear intentions.  There is no sense getting in the driver’s seat if you don’t know where you want to go.  It might seem simple, but I have a feeling many of us need to take the time to really figure out what we want to grow before we pick out the seeds to plant.  

 

Here is Archangel Barachiel’s words to guide us:  

Thank you, thank you, I am so happy to be here with you today.  I am Archangel Barakiel, archangel of gifts, and I am strength and focus.  You can feel my enormous energy, as I fill people up with confidence.  I help you uncover barriers that were once unseen to you, and give you guidance to lift them away.  

 

You are now at a point where you are ready for action.  You are like cats, poised and ready to pounce, but waiting for that perfect moment to do so.  You may find that you’ve achieved goals that you set out to manifest, but you still feel empty, as if waiting for something else to appear.  Each time you achieve, you immediately enter a feeling of waiting, as if you have not yet achieved the biggest thought yet, and so you constantly move towards feelings of waiting for something, bigger, more momentous, more brilliant to occur.  In short, you create magnificently, and are disappointed after that journey is done.  This is part of how you process your human experience.

 

You will find yourselves ready to take action, but the struggle will be to not work backwards.  You see, you must first have a thought.  These thoughts must become a word, and then that word must become an action.  Thoughts and Ideas to Words and Affirmations to Actions.  

 

When you try to take action before the words, and before the thoughts, that action has no creative energy behind it.  That is why you must clarify your thoughts, and clarify them more by saying them out loud or in written form before you can take steps.  So much has risen to the surface, and so much attention is being given to pain and fear.  You may give this your attention if you so choose, and as a result you will be surrounding yourself with pain and fear.  If you choose to change your thoughts, however, you can transform your life to that which is more aligned with your true nature, to be loving.  

 

We are not asking you to ignore fearful thoughts, but rather notice them, and then shift your thoughts to higher vibration thoughts.  In that sense you can change and create your reality.  There is always a higher thought to reach for.  That is why I am here, to provide you with strength and inspiration to do so!  I digress now, but I want you to know that your focus is your key to your development as a high vibrational being.  Your souls and your bodies are ready to do do do, and as you are here to experience all that you can, this makes sense for you to desire the experiential process.  

 

I am telling you, that you can change your way of experiencing starting now.  This is by focusing on your highest thought, and taking action based on this thought.  What is the highest thought you can think, and this is a phrase you are hearing over and over again in various ways.  It is in your thoughts, your music, your media, and ‘randomly’ with people in conversations.  In some form or another, you are being guided to think your highest thought about yourself.  Pay attention to this guidance, and focus on your mental and emotional clarity.  

 

Many things are ending and new things are beginning, and this is for a purpose.  The purpose is to bring you to a higher vibrational reality.  Many are succumbing to a lower vibration, as they are thinking the worst.  This is okay, do not worry about them.  All you need to know, as you can see from those who are lowering their thoughts, is that their reality has become a reflection of those thoughts, and they are drawing others to them who reinforce these thoughts.  You can do the same, and you ARE doing the same.  

 

You will want to bring your mental focus to your highest priority.  Commit to high vibration.  Take action based on your highest most loving thoughts.  Say words based on your most joyful ideas.  Again thoughts to ideas to words to action.  This is a month for you to finish healing from the issues that have been stuck in your energy field.  You are releasing them so you may clear your energy, your mind, your auric body, and make room to bring in high vibrational thoughts.  Say these thoughts, write them down, sing them to yourself; once they are crystal clear, take action.  Thoughtful action means better creation.  

 

You will feel more powerful and more ready to create than ever before once you do this.  You deserve the time and energy and focus to devote to this clarity that you need.  Make space and room for it.  Call upon me for the strength, for clearing away the negativity, and to bring you the inspiration.  

July 2016 Guidance with Angel Dominic

I’m really excited to bring you spiritual insights into the month of July, with a dialogue between myself and one of my guardian angels Dominic.  I wanted to post this by July 1st, but the dialogue has been continuing for several days, so I decided to wait until we had finished our conversation!  Typically I try to tune into an ascended master or archangel for each month’s channeling, but this time it felt like Dominic had a lot to share that would feel relevant to many of us.

The first time I saw Dominic, he looked like he was in a 90’s grunge rock band–a red flannel shirt, black pants, and long, black, disheveled hair.  We’ve grown quite close the past several years in particular, and I can always feel him on my left side.  When I am feeling drained or upset, I can feel his hand holding mine as he brings me the energy of comfort and peace.  He’s very straightforward and speaks his own truth.  

We all have guardian angels who are accessible to us always.  If you don’t know yours, start talking and thinking to them; tell them about your day, your hopes and dreams, sing with them while driving, and invite them to be in your presence.  Their energy is warm, protective and loving, and they have much to share with you.  

Here is Dominic and my dialogue about the month of July:

Me: What would you like us to know about the month of July?

Dominic:  You might feel this ‘basic’, but there are really two big paths you can take this month: fall into fear, or transform it all with love.  It’s the simplest of lessons, and yet the most difficult for you to achieve on this plane.  

Me: Can you explain more?

Dominic: This month is about transformation, but you first have to transition out of the thought of ‘selective transformation.’  When something transforms, every bit of it does.  This is true transformation: every single part of a anything with life force will transform.  When earth beings try to transform, it is more difficult, because they only want certain parts to transform and develop.  Transformation is holistic, and encompasses every part of you.  You must be willing to let everything about you transform and ascend.  

One of the reasons this is difficult for you is you are afraid of losing something in the process.  Your identities are very important to you, and since you base much of your identity on the physical, which is always temporary, it is hard for you to shift your consciousness to spiritual thinking.  You lose things in the physical, but you do not lose in the spiritual.  You can start to shift your thinking and your perspective about your physical identity, that these physical aspects are merely reflections of what you are spiritually remembering.  Some are reflections of what you need to spiritually heal, what your spiritual strengths are…every physical aspect about you has a deeper meaning that relates to your soul.

Me: So, if we are to transform, we must do so with a ‘I surrender myself’ type of thinking?  

Dominic: Yes and no.  You are creators, after all, and contrary to your belief, to create doesn’t mean to also control.  Creation is an act of love; control is an act of fear.  If you wish to create, you must give up the programmed desire to control.  If you wish to transform, you must do so willingly without fear.  Surrendering is just your way of identifying how to do something with trust and without fear.  Surrendering is your way of spiritually trusting yourself.  You are all desiring deeply to ascend, and with this desire comes conflict from your ego.  

Me: There’s so much tragedy going on, lots of violence and acts of fear, and people seem like they feel so stuck.

Dominic: You can think of it is tragic, but know that we do not judge any acts.  People are experiencing the physical, and you are the ones labeling the good and the bad.  Some of these acts are coming out of resistance of their spirit; some are out of fear.  If you feel the call to do something, then do it, as long as you feel it presents you the way you wish to be presented.  Feeling stuck, however, is a natural part of the process of ascension.

Me: How is being stuck a part of it?

Dominic: Feeling stuck, yet know you are not, because the wheel is always turning.  It is like changing the channel on a television: you are enjoying a program for awhile, but then you become bored and want to tune into something else.  However, you don’t know what that something else is yet.  So, you change the channel, and come to the ‘in-between’ channels that show static, or uninteresting programs.  Feeling stuck is like this process.  Until you tune into a program that speaks to you the most at that moment in time, you will continue tuning into static.  This is simply you moving and seeking until you find your next step in your ascension.  

Me: So, how can we speed up the process this month so we can tune into the best program possible for ourselves?

Dominic: Be willing to transform.  You will never find something to properly suit your spiritual needs and growth if you are unwilling to truly move on and let go.  Transforming requires you release, because transformation is about liberation.  This requires you to visit and revisit all your present circumstances, to be aware of your perspective and how you function, and to liberate yourself of all in the present moment.  

I do not mean take your possessions and throw them away, unless you feel called to do so.   I mean to not let your circumstances and material life be the driving force, which is usually what has motivated humans in the past.  This is no longer working for you; you have moved beyond that.  Your driving force is love and creation.  Let your thinking transform in this way.  You do not buy food because your stomach is empty and you wish to fill it; you buy food to nourish yourself as an act of love for yourself.  This way you shift your focus from lack to love, from physical needs to expressions of love.  

We tell you often you will not find fulfillment in the outside forces of your life, but that it has to come from within.  Take that deeper this month, because the ‘within’ is YOU; outside forces CAN affect and nourish you, but only when you are the force behind it.  When they come from your desire, your creation, and your love.  It is always fulfilling when you are the manifesting one,  rather than waiting for others to fulfill your needs and desires.  

Be willing to listen, go within, and ‘shop around’ this month.  You will have lots of desires and impulses, feelings of stagnation and despair, but simply accept these periods and acknowledge that the wheel within you is always turning and always ascending.  Start connecting with others, doing things outside your comfort zone (many of you really do need that push), because nothing will transform for you if you are unwilling to transform yourself.  Remember, remember, that you are pure love and perfect, and this month is helping you to remember that. 

July-December 2016 Six Month Tarot Forecast

This reading looks at different aspects of the year, as well as general energy for each individual month.

Change is upon us, whether we welcome it or not, so the rest of the year will require COURAGE. We want to seek purpose and meaning from within, and cease seeking fulfillment from outside resources and events. We have the chance to connect with others, even though it may be difficult. The lesson is that anything we need for motivation, we can find within ourselves. We will have great strength the rest of the year as we skillfully integrate the physical with the spiritual, and apply our higher knowing to our daily lives. You know yourself and have more strength now than you ever have before! The guidance to keep in mind is to stick to your beliefs, and tune into your higher senses. You could be easily swayed this year by worry, worldly events, and ego-based fears, so listen to and process your emotions to clear out any bothersome chatter. Your spirit is passionate, and by 2017 there will be major transformation for everyone on multiple levels.
