I write this mostly for myself so I remember, but if it will be beneficial to anyone else
It's been awhile since I've written a Blog post! I write a ton of them in my head throughout the day, but rarely do they make it into written form.
I write this mostly for myself so I remember, but if it will be beneficial to anyone else
Working on navigating and integrating multiple aspects of the work I am blessed to do. Please visit the blog below ;)
Q: What is most important and beneficial for this group to be aware of for the month of October 2018?
A: The Emerging SHE (The Lens we are looking through)
Reversed Three of Wands
Reversed 4 of Wands
Reversed The Chariot
Reversed Two of Swords
Upright 10 of Swords
We begin our reading with the beautiful card ~ The Emerging SHE.
Some of the symbolism shows Courage, Nurturing, Leadership and Strength.
The artist is Marlie Avant and her message that goes with the card is equally as beautiful:
The Emerging SHE
"If you pulled this card today, perhaps it is time you embrace your highest potential.
The Emerging SHE within you is awakening and forging a new path for you, empowering your greatest strengths, your heart’s cherished dreams, and your deeply sourced, intrinsic wisdom.
SHE beckons you to turn your attention inward and feel the ebb and flow of her inhale and exhale.
Feel the warmth of the fire in her belly, the blood pulsing through her veins.
SHE is very much alive and offers you the love that has always been yours to receive.
SHE wants you to know you are not alone. SHE and her lioness heart are always with you, for SHE and you are one.
Hold your head high, knowing you are no less than the star-stuff of creation, which has magically danced and spun itself throughout eternity.
Walk proudly into your destiny."
As we go into the rest of the reading...remember that we are looking through the lens of her energy.
The first card of the Cross of Truth reading is one we have seen many times before ~ The Three of Wands Reversed.
When reversed this card talks about doubt, inability to put energy into planning, and lack of direction.
You can see the disharmony between the two. Our True Essence is one of Confidence and Empowerment. While we might not always know exactly which direction to go...we surrender and trust or we get stuck in doubt and fear.
The second card is Four of Wands also Reversed.
It shows insecurity and feeling unworthy.
Okay so not warm and fuzzy cards so far...but again look through the lens of The Emerging SHE. There is something awakening and forging a new path for you. Your Inner Wisdom is coming forth in a powerful and natural way. Your job is to fully align with that.
One of the keys to do that will be Nurturing your self and also nurturing your dreams.
The helpful energy card is The Chariot Reversed.
The message when reversed is about:
How is this helpful? Remember that awareness builds consciousness. When you take the time to tune in and see what feels off or restrictive...you can begin to make necessary adjustments.
Nurturing comes up again because if you are running on empty you simply won't have the energy to move forward.
Are you leaking energy? Are you just empty?
It can be important to know which one you feel is more relevant to you. And if you were wondering...yes it can be both.
The Obstacle Card is: Two of Swords Reversed
Here we are going to look at the Shadow of this card which is: Chronic Self -Doubt and Procrastination.
Before we move to the final card I want you to think about this. We are all at different points on our journey as individuals but we have more in common than might first meet the eye.
We are all here to live out the fullest expression of our True Essence. For some that will be expressed through having a business, a career, by being an artist, a caregiver, a volunteer etc., but the bottom line is you are fully expressing your True Essence in a way that you are called to, a way that you are passionate about.
When you doubt yourself or don't feel worthy to be the expression of your true self...you are out of harmony and it doesn't feel good.
Being that full expression comes before Doing something. You can't really be your Full Expression if you are completely depleted.
Ready for the Final card?
It is the Ten of Swords.
The image on the card is a bit scary!
I don't know about you but that isn't super inviting!
It symbolizes defeat, a feeling of being depressed, pinned down, attacked, betrayed, hitting rock bottom..
It also talks about learning through failure.
The good thing about hitting rock bottom is there is no way but up...right?
Notice the deer in the background of the image...deer represent:
It is the ending of the old and the beginning of the new.
It's time to ask yourself some serious questions and spend time in reflection, in whatever way that looks like for you.
Are you happy with where you are in your life?
Is something exciting calling you that you are too fearful or too depleted to take action on?
Are you procrastinating on making a decision? And if so is it because you are afraid of something? Or does it truly serve you to wait for more insight?
Are you open to hearing the answer from the Universe or are you afraid of what you might hear?
What other questions have been coming up for you?
Are you ready and willing to look at them now?
Where are you being called to embrace your highest potential?
In our reading we see cards in the suit of Wands which is the Fire Element...the action realm, and two cards in the suit of Swords which is the Air Element...the mental realm.
Let's look at these two Elements and ask for any additional insight:
Fire ~ Letting Go
What do you need to Let Go of?
Air ~ Vibration
Are you aware of your overall vibration?
On a scale of 1- 10 with 10 being the highest...where do feel your baseline frequency is at?
Is there anything you can do it raise that vibration into a more positive and life affirming range?
My wish for us all...that we embrace The Emerging SHE within us <3
And for the men in here...I know you know this is talking about your Feminine nature.
In a Nutshell: You can embrace your Highest Potential by Letting Go of what no longer serves you and raising your consciousness vibration.

Q: What is most important and beneficial for this group to be aware of for the month of February 2018?
Tunnel/9 of Swords
Gate/Reversed King of Pentacles
Air/Three of Pentacles
Gift/Seven of Wands
Child/Reversed Ace of Cups
We start the reading with the Image of a Candle. The Candle Card is a symbol for Light and Hope ~ It dispels darkness and provides us with the light we need to take our next steps.
The next card we see is the Tunnel Card.
This card symbolizes traveling underground and a trip to the underworld. Tunnels can be scary and uncomfortable places that leave us feeling a little anxious and unsure.
It is accompanied by the 9 of Swords. That card shows a woman in bed sitting upright with her arms folded over her chest and 9 Swords suspended above her. She is guarding her heart.
The keyword for this card is actually Anxiety.
If you tune in...on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the highest...how would you rate your level of anxiety?
If it is high ~ these cards make perfect sense to you.
If it is rating low...how is your overall health right now? Your mood?
Sometimes Anxiety is something you are well aware of and other times it is running its current below the level of your conscious awareness.
Tune in and see what you intuitively sense.
The next card is Gate. This symbolizes a beginning point and it is accompanied by The King of Pentacles Reversed.
The Gate symbolizes a passage from one state to another ~ from darkness to light. The King of Pentacles is about Security.
When reversed he symbolizes problems related to home or real estate, bad investments or lost revenue.
If representing a person it can symbolize a corrupt ruler.
Is there a particular person in your personal life that is contributing to your anxiety or a person you have an uneasy feeling about?
Are you passing through a Gate and moving away from this person? Moving from darkness to light?
For some it will be an actual person and for others it will be a situation.
What is Key to remember is that you are moving through this Gate now.
Sometimes what feels like Security is actually a false sense of Security that keeps you stuck in familiar patterns.
It is interesting to note that these events may be actual events in the physical world...which goes along with the Pentacle cards that have come up...but know that they can also just be happening at the level of Mind...which then creates our outer reality.
The Helpful Energy Cards are Air and 3 of Pentacles.
Air symbolizes being free and limitless. This is your time now to move beyond restraints...either self-imposed restraints or restraints placed on you by others.
Either way...you are ready to be free.
The 3 of Pentacles is a card of Synergy. It is about building a foundation.
You are now free to build a new foundation that is Illuminated by the truth of who and what you are.
Time to allow the old stories to be just that...old stories...and you are ready for not just a new chapter in your life...but a whole new Book.
That Book is based on the Real YOU, not the conditioned you...but the YOU that fully expresses your True Essence.
The Obstacle Cards are Gift and Seven of Wands.
This Gift card in this spot can be interpreted in two ways. It can mean that a Gift that somebody is giving you isn't actually a gift at all or it comes with strings attached that will not serve you.
That will be true for some of you. For others this card actually means that all that is going on for you right now...even though it may suck...it is actually a Gift.
Dr. Darren Weissman calls them Gifts in strange wrapping paper.
The overall sense I feel from that card though is a reminder from the Universe that all that has been experienced is bringing you to and through this next Gate in your life.
The next Obstacle Card is the 7 of Wands and it is a card of Forcefulness.
Some of the obstacles that can show up here are:
~ A defensive attitude when openness is needed
~ Oversensitive to Criticism
~ Creating Self-Imposed Obstacles
Tune into your Inner Wisdom here because you may need to protect yourself, hold your ground, and push away unwanted demands...
And yet...this is the Obstacle card so really feel into if that is helping you or creating a problem.
This is why most healers and spiritual teachers will suggest to you that tapping into your own Inner Wisdom really is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
The final cards are Child and Ace of Cups Reversed.
The Child Archetype is about Innocence and Curiosity.
It is an innocent, joyful curiosity that can help you break away from entrenched patterns, better allowing you to see, play and discover.
The Child also represents Simplicity.
The Ace of Cups Reversed is lovingly telling you it is time to fill your own cup. In order for you to move out of the Tunnel and through the Gate you will serve yourself best by filling your cup.
That can look a lot of different ways depending on what is going on in your life.
Because we are Body, Mind and Spirit ..all three levels of Being need to be filled.
Where do you feel most out of balance? Physically, Mentally, Emotionally or Spiritually?
Just start somewhere with the Intention of filling yourself back up.
A simple place to start...add some good quality water to a favorite cup and drink a minimum of eight 8 ounce glasses per day!
How can we Simply sum this up?
Circling back to the beginning card of the Candle that lights your next steps:
Your next Immediate Step is filing your own cup.
What are 1 to 3 things you can Be, Do, Have, Give or Create now to begin doing that? What might that look like?
For me, right now...that looks like:
1. Increasing my Water intake ~ ongoing but I'll start with another glass right now to get me closer to my goal.
2. Returning to Bright Line Eating.~ ongoing but I'll start today by planning my lunch and dinner and sticking to it.
3. Making that overdue Dental Appointment. (Called to make it but they were closed so left a message.)
4. Getting a Massage. (Scheduled for early March...willing to wait for the Therapist highly recommended.)
5. Morning Meditation/Movement ~ ongoing but I started my day with this and I'm always glad when I do.
Truly don't know what that next step might be for you?
Simply start with Lighting a Candle and see what next step is Illuminated for you. This simple action gets the energy moving if you are feeling stuck.

If you know anything about me you know I use Oracle Card Decks and Tarot Cards regularly. In 2013 I co-created a deck called Awakening To Your Divine Self with 38 other Artists, Healers and Teachers. I have many favorite decks but this one is super close to my heart for many reasons.
You don't have to be an "expert" in reading Oracle Cards in order to use them. They are a great way to jump start and/or deepen your Intuition.
In my humble opinion developing your Intuition is one of the most empowering things you can do for yourself as you go along your Earth Walk and reconnect to your True Essence.
There is no right or wrong way to work with Oracle Cards though I do suggest you work with them with Reverence for the Sacred connection it allows you to have with this amazing Universe and your Inner Wisdom.
Almost all Oracle Card Decks come with a Message booklet included with the deck. That booklet can be a wonderful tool to use when seeing what the meaning of the Card has for you, but don't start or stop there ~ Look at the image itself and "listen" to the messages. See, hear, feel and know the messages coming to you.
What jumps out at you? What do you notice first? Any colors really pop for you? What is the Title of the Card?
I'm going to use this perfect example of the simple use of Oracle Cards in my upcoming classes and workshops. I think it illustrates how powerful, simple and accurate they are, and I wanted to share with you :)
My 21 year old daughter has a health condition called Neurogenic Bladder. For whatever reason her nerves do not communicate properly with her brain to allow her muscles to relax so she can urinate normally. This manifested for her when she was 16 years old. At first it happened occasionally and she would have an indwelling catheter for a few days and then be fine. Eventually though it became more and more frequent that she could not empty her bladder normally and she had to learn to catheterize herself multiple times a day.
Stay with me...I'm almost to the illustration of how awesome Oracle Cards are!
5 years ago she had a surgical procedure called Interstim where she had a battery and a wire with electrodes implanted to stimulate the bladder nerves. It was wonderfully successful.
Last Summer (2016) she needed to have a revision of that surgery. It was a 2 stage process and when completed she went back to Hawaii where she lives and attends school.
Not long after she arrived back on the Island she began having pain. Pain from the battery placement itself (they moved it during the revision), pain in her lower back, and pain from another area. That pain became unbearable and she could not complete her school year. She returned home in early May to have her Urologist see what was going on.
She once again needed surgery to: move the battery, take out the three existing wires, and see if they could get a new wire in place to properly stimulate her nerves so she could empty her bladder normally.
If they could not adequately stimulate her nerves they would take the battery out and she would have to go back to catheterizing herself multiple times a day.
The surgery was supposed to be about 2 hours long. After 2.5 hours I started to get super nervous. While I had been praying and trusting in the Divine no matter what the outcome ended up being, and I knew she had lots of wonderful people praying and sending her healing vibes, I was still getting very worried.
What if something went wrong? What if they couldn't get the stimulation they needed? How would she handle it if everything was taken out?
Thankfully I had my Awakening To Your Divine Self Oracle Card Deck with me :)
I asked for some insight on what I could expect and the card pulled was Tree of Life.
I want you to look at that Card and see what comes up for you...Go ahead I'll wait ;)
What insight came through for you?
If you look at the card, the question I asked and the situation that was occurring what does the image and energy say?
To me it symbolized Gianna's Nerve Endings. The Golden Seed meant they were able to get the Wire and Electrodes in the proper place and the little Swirls all around were showing Celebration.
After 3 hours the Surgeon came out to say the Surgery was an incredible success! Everything went as well as it could :)
Let's pull a Card Together Now...
Question: What Would the Universe most like you to be aware of Regarding your Intuition and Use of Oracle Cards at this time?
"Listen" is the Card. What Message do you get?
Using One Rune for Today's Reading
Q: What is most important and beneficial for this collective group to be aware of for the month of November 2016?
A: I was guided to pull one Rune today instead of the usual 5 cards.
I pulled the Rune of: Disruption.~ Hagalaz
The message is taken almost word for word from "The Book of Runes" by Ralph H. Blum
The attributes of this Rune are:
"Drawing this Rune indicates a pressing need within the Psyche to break free from constricting identification with material reality and to experience the world of archetypal mind.
The Rune of elemental disruption, or events that seem to be totally beyond your control. This Rune Hagalaz has only an upright position and yet it always operates through reversal.
When you draw this Rune, expect disruption, for it is the Great Awakener, although the form the awakening takes may vary.
Perhaps yo will experience a gradual feeling of coming to your senses, as though you are emerging from a deep sleep.
Then again, the onset of power may be such as to rip away the fabric of what you previously knew as your reality, your security, your understanding of yourself, your work, your relationships, or beliefs.
Disruption takes many forms: a relationship fails, plans go awry, a source of supply dries up, (an election does not go as one would have thought).
But do not be dismayed.
Whether you created the disruption, or whether it comes from an outside source, you are not without power in this situation.
Your inner strength - the will you have funded until now in your life - provides support and guidance at a time when everything you've taken for granted is being challenged.
This is one of the Cycle Runes, the term radical discontinuity best describes the action of Hagalaz at its most forceful.
The more server the disruption in your life, the more significant and timely the requirements for you growth.
The Universe and your own Soul are demanding that you do, indeed grow."
Please sit in reflection, meditation, prayer or whatever you do to come into your Center and Receive the guidance of your Inner Wisdom.
While the Universe fully supports you, do not hesitate to reach out to friends and family if needed.
I'll pull one more card asking:
What will most support us at this time of Disruption?
The Queen of Cups
She is kind, gentle, sensitive and thoughtful, creative and artistic. She is in tune with her inner world which she can easily slip into and access.
Her message to you: "Be creative at this time. Acknowledge and honor your feelings without judgment. Seek support if needed from trusted allies ~ those that understand you. You are held in a field of Love. Remember this."
Jill Marie Chesrow
Q: What is most important and beneficial for this collective group to be aware of for the month of October 2016?
A: The first card we see is The Fool Reversed.
Let's talk about Commitment and how that relates to your Inner Child because there is a part of you that is very ready to move forward in your life but you are holding back and not committing to action due to fear and mistrust.
This isn't saying to take undisciplined our uninspired action...but look at any where in your life where you are procrastinating and not taking action towards what you want to be, do, have, give, create or experience in your life.
The next card is the 10 of Pentacles Reversed so this shows that part of your fear and part of your not taking action is related to money and/or physical resources.
You need to ask yourself some questions around money and/or physical resources, and if they are contributing to your fears and lack of, or delay of, committed action.
The 3rd card is the Helpful Energy Card and here it is the King of Swords Reversed.
Swords represent the Air Element and is associated with the Mental Realm.
This card suggests you are staying stuck in your head and not allowing your Feelings to flow freely.
You may be feeling very inspired to take action but you are overthinking and over analyzing things.
*** I know some of you are making some life-altering decisions that can not be made lightly...so use your own DISCERNMENT to see how this reading relates to you and what is going on in your life. ***
Is it possible that your thoughts are more focused on what you are afraid will happen instead of focusing on the positive aspects of what you want?
Again...it can be very important to look at all case scenarios...AND at the same time BE FOCUSED on what you do want, not what you don't want.
That's Abraham-Hicks 101.
You can make a decision of what you DO WANT and be committed to that as you align your energy with it and release what is holding you out of Alignment with it.
Abraham used to call that Pre-Paving (I think!). Not sure what they call it now.
Be clear on what you want, give your energy, attention and focus to that, release what doesn't serve you, and take inspired action when it is given.
The Obstacle Card is: The Devil
Here again we see Fear and Restriction
You know I'm a huge fan of Body Code Emotion Code work but there are SOOOOOOOO many ways you can identify and release your Fears and any Restriction you have in your energy field.
Lately I've been working with EFT. You can search on YouTube and see a million free videos about releasing your Fears...yup just double checked and a bunch of videos came up :)
Here are some of the issues/emotions related to the Devil Card:
Shackled by Ignorance
Chained to the need for approval
Struggling with or Denying Addiction or Depression
Projecting your faults onto others
Abusing others or being abused yourself
The final card we see is Death Reversed
By now I hope you know that when the Death card shows up that it is a really good thing as it means you are releasing what no longer serves you...and beginning a new phase in your life.
Here though it is Reversed which means you have let go of some things but still have some more to release. Enough of them have remained so that your fear is still taking over and impeding your progress. There is still an inability to let go or move on.
But that's okay...you are where you are. The difference is now you know a bit more of why you aren't taking more action, or if you are, why you don't feel like you are moving forward, or why it feels so hard.
Take a breath, extend some love to yourself and ask your Universal Support Team how you can gently, easily and lovingly release the fear that you have at this time.
There is always support available, be sure you are receptive to it when it shows up in positive and life affirming ways <3.
Hello! Taking a moment out of my busy day to jot down some thoughts and I wanted to share them with you. As a DreamBuilder Coach and Multi-Modality Energy Healing Practitioner I remain fascinated with the Manifestation Principles that govern this Human Experience.
There are basic principles to follow and that is so very helpful. You can find them all over the Internet and pretty much all for FREE. Thanks to people like Abraham-Hicks and Michael Losier, the mystery of manifestation is broken down into the Immutable Laws of the this Universe in super simple ways.
There is amazing release work available that helps release blocks and old patterns from the Sub-conscious mind that are INCREDIBLE. I am trained in several of them
And Yes...there is always room for "this or something even better still" so the Universe can amaze us with something we didn't even know was a possibility but was a desire we had.
I'm reflecting on this because there are many things I would love to manifest and have not at this point in time. From a place of curiosity I wonder why some things seem so easy and others not so much.
Recently I became a new car owner. I wasn't looking for a new car nor did I consciously want a new car. I certainly wasn't looking for a Jeep Cherokee as it was never a brand I was that familiar with (I LOVE it!).
What I was putting a lot of energy and attention into was getting my daughter a car so she could safely travel to and from campus and to work while she is in Hawaii. I wanted her to have a safe and reliable car so she wouldn't have to worry much about car maintenance. I wanted to know beyond a reason of a doubt that the person she would get her car from was trustworthy and honest and she wouldn't be buying a piece of junk.
All of that was my man desire ~ For my daughter to have safe, reliable transportation.
We looked at some used cars in her area over the Internet but they were all so expensive and had a lot of miles on them. That didn't feel right.
And then...we started to think...maybe, just maybe the best option would be to ship my current car to her Island. While not an inexpensive option...we know the history of the car and all the maintenance that has been done on it.
We looked at the numbers of both options, meaning her getting a car there versus shipping my paid off car to her.
It became clearer and clearer that that was the best option. So off Tony and I went to look for a new car and how I ended up with a awesome Jeep Cheerokee and the whole process flowed pretty easily.
Now to bring that wisdom to some other areas of my life!
Spirit often "talks" to me about Structural Integrity.
Sometimes I know exactly what that means and I totally get it, and other times it feels unclear and a bit nebulous.
That seems to be right on with this evolutionary journey doesn't it?
Sometimes you feel like you get this Game of Life and other times you may feel like you don't have a clue.
Today when I was hearing the whisper of Structural Integrity and the invitation to really reflect on what that means to me in this moment I saw several Keys in my minds eye.
Body, Mind and Spirit health and well-being are so multi-dimensional and seemingly complex in nature with an underlying current of simplicity.
I love the term "Cracking the Code." I see a matrix of energies that are in a disharmonious state that are more than ready to come into balance and harmony.
Can you feel it? Do you have an incredible knowing that peace, harmony and well-being are right there but sometimes seem out of reach?
What will it take for us to fully enter that state of constant, overall Harmony in Body, Mind and Spirit?
Today I will be listening deeply to what message Structural Integrity has for me and what part it plays in Cracking the Code to our natural state of Peace and Harmony ;)
How will that play into my own wellness journey and the multi-modality practice I have been building over the past several years?
I'm excited to see what unfolds...all I can say right now is the energy FEELS amazing.
Take a few moments, if you desire, and tap into what Structural Integrity is whispering to you.
Q: What card in the Awakening To Your Divine Self Oracle Card Deck carries the energy essence transmission of Structural Integrity at this time?
A: Angel Gratitude
One of the keys to Structural Integrity is having an Attitude of Gratitude. What a simple gift from this amazing Universe. Having a foundational practice of Gratitude is clearly part of Structural Integrity.
How can I, how can you, tap into Gratitude today as part of Structural Integrity?
Have you ever taken the time to list things you LOVE to do?
Things you can do indoors, outdoors, by yourself, with others, when you have lots of "extra" money, when you don't, when you have lots of "extra" time, or when you don't...etc?
If you do have a list...do you do at least one thing on it everyday?
Some of us don't even know what we enjoy doing or being!!!!
This sounds overly simple but knowing and doing the things that you Love opens up an energetic space to bring in more things and opportunity for us to be in JOY.
Be, Do, Have, Give, or Create one thing today that you LOVE!
Make this a healthy habit and see what unfolds and expands in your life :)
Let's see what card energetically supports this message today...
Playful Voice!!!! How Divinely Perfect!
