Wisdom for the day of: Thursday, August 16, 2018
“Oh, be quiet, crow. We hear you.”
“That old crow is a messenger. He’s telling us where to go to find Aunt Millie. He is leading the way.”
– Lorraine, Aboriginal Elder.
On this trip, we were supposed to meet with Aunt Millie a ninety-three-year-old Aboriginal Elder and Keeper of Sacred Sites. But we weren’t sure where Aunt Millie was.
I have to say there was a crow whenever we stopped., and it was noisy. I did not know the language of the crow, but my companions do. Who knows, I thought, he may speak the only language of the Australian Aboriginal. That’s not it, though, because my Native friends the world over tell me that the crow is a messenger.
Animals seem to speak a universal language. Maybe if we understood and spoke the language of the animals, we wouldn’t have to translate for humans. Australian Aboriginals say that if we have nothing to hide, all of us can communicate telepathically.
We found Aunt Millie.
When I learn to listen to nature, I am never lost.

By working with your Guardian Angels and spiritual teams, you are working towards your true and soul purpose!
Be fearless and show love to every living being.

Crystal Colour: Emerald Green Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Heart
As we continue to go through a deep release and healing over the next two weeks (from August 7th to August 19th) We will experience many different retrogrades that may continue longer than this duration. This will include: Mercury, Uranus, Pluto, Neptune, Saturn, and Mars. We will also experience the New Moon in Libra which calls us to bring more harmony, flow and balance into our being, as well as the energy of the Lion’s Gate on August 8th, 2018.
Mixed into this, is the Perseid Meteor Showers, between August 11th to August 13th, 2018. This event will have between 100 to 150 shooting stars over these three special nights.
So this may explain a deep need to release any karmic ties to anything that no longer serves a purpose for you. It is our natural state of being to open and to share our expressions, our emotions and our love to the world. However, being human, we often can easily get hurt in this process.
Every single person natural take on survival if someone or something has violated their trust, is to shut down. To close yourself off, and your heart from those who care for you and who want to help you. Nevertheless, LOVE is essential for healing, and is a powerful energy to heal ANYTHING.
The key is to love yourself (and others) through your experiences and through your hurts. We can’t change our past, as much as we would like to, or want to. But we can learn from it, and help others understand from our own unique perspective what we have been through.
Please keep your heart chakra OPEN and FREE TO LOVE. Why? Because the Divine LOVES YOU, and two- you deserve many different types of LOVE. There’s so much love for you out in this world…..you just need to find it. It may not be the love that you want (such as romantic love) but if you are open and accepting of all type of love (love of a parent, or grandparent, love of a friend, or love of a pet) the love that you are truly seeking will come to you in due course.
Sometimes, in this emotional time we need to let go of people or things that no longer serve us. While this may be difficult for many of you; please remember this: It’s not that you wish them ill-will or you need to forgive them (that’s your personal choice) but all you can do is energetically send them love, wish them well and say that you have moved on.
This creates healthy energy and karmic boundaries between you, other people, places and things. We all need space and time to heal, and everyone has their unique spiritual journey to travel on.
We all need love, it’s just a matter of healing ourselves, before we can heal others.
So in brief:
• Heals the inner realms of the wounded heart and enhances openness
• Transmutes and heals old pain and emotional wounds
• Allows you dissolve and release sadness in your life
• Lets down walls of anger, bitterness, resentment, and resistance, embracing love and connection
I love and accept all that I am
There is nothing to change,
there is only love
Every aspect of me
Serves me and others in some way
I create health, wealth and harmony
by loving what is
All I accept and love
transforms into greater love
Yin and Yang are the Divine Feminine and Masculine energies that preside within our being. We need these beautiful and powerful energies to feel as sense of balance, harmony and tranquility in our being as human beings. Whether you’re a man or a woman, or if you identify as either a man or woman – we all have these Divine energies within our soul.
This card is a reminder that perhaps currently you are experiencing some disharmony in some aspect of your life due to a refusal to accept certain aspects of your unique personality. Nothing about you is bad. Perhaps there are traits within your personality, your talents or qualities are something that you are yet to discover.
You may need to learn to accept self-love, self-kindness, or have more confidence. For each person it will be different. For anything you feel, think or perceive that you are lacking about yourself; you actually have within yourself.
For every strength you have in your being, you also have a weakness. We all have weaknesses. But, merely our weaknesses, balance out our strengths. We need to always have harmony since we are all spiritual beings of Divinity.
Nothing is neither good nor bad. It is, just is. We need not to compete, but merely support one another.
To find love is to accept both our flaws and our successes. We need to learn to accept our whole selves – our wholistic being.
Allow the beautiful energies of both Yin and Yang to bring you love and confidence to your soul.

This card ask you to experiment with your approach to your situation that you are asking about. You have beautiful and powerful Indigo energy within you right now, helping you to control and support your mood and energy.
You have a place in this world, and you are called to make a difference in this world – no matter how big or small it may seem. Exploring your life purpose, your soul purpose takes time, and while it may seem you are taking many pathways, remember that there’s more than one road, one mountain, and one river to get to your destination.
If you feel called to a certain course of direction in your life…why not give it a try? Let go of your fears, and your worries. You can always change your direction or pathway, if you wish to – since it is your life! For you, my beloved one, are never truly lost.

Crystal Colour: Clear or Smoky Quartz Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: All Chakras
As we are approaching the Universal portal of the Lion’s Den otherwise known as the Law of Attraction portal of 8 of the August and in numerology these numbers are very powerful and healing in vibrational frequency; in terms of manifestation and in terms of spiritual awakening. When the number 8 is turned on its side – this means that it is connected to infinity – a never-ending Celestial connection to life and Divinity.
This card has been drawn for you since the Awakening Crystal is a powerful and healing crystal to help you empower yourself on a self-discovery journey towards healing your emotional body. Bringing deep and rooted emotions to the surface, while this may feel very raw for you, it is much need to help bring much closure and healing for you that you need for all your chakras and for your past, to your present moment.
If you have recently been experiencing a challenging or difficult time, the Awakening Deva is here to bring light, love and support to you right now. We are also experiencing the Mercury Retrograde now (which affects our communication, technology, and does have an impact on our relationships, past lives and emotions) Mercury Retrograde commenced on July 26th, 2018 and will finished on August 19th, 2018.
Why does this deep emotional and sacred healing need to take place? Every single living being on this planet experiences many different forms of addictions, traumas, pain or suffering. While you may not like it, or want these feelings, emotions, thoughts, words, or experiences to occur right now – they are much need to be released, to surrender and allow yourself to be vulnerable. It allows the old to be released for something better to come forth.
It’s okay to be overwhelmed. It’s okay to be emotional. It’s okay to be kind to yourself. Men, women and children shouldn’t hide away from their true feelings, thoughts, trauma, pain or suffering. Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone whom you trust to talk if you feel scared, or you are experiencing a challenging time. There are a lot of people and support group who care and want to help. We are all human, and we all will experience this sometime in our lifetime.
So in brief:
• Deep clearing and healing on an emotional level
• Releasing and transforming grief, fear and trauma
• Understanding your shadow side
• Overcoming addiction
If you need additional help and support, you’re welcome to contact me.
This card signifies that you are experience a phrase of feeling defeated or hesitated because you have worked tremendously hard to achieve an improvement in an area in your life. Perhaps you feel that you have some problems that are bigger than you can handle and this may caused you feel that you are a burden to yourself, to others or to resources. Now, is the time to take action towards your own personal responsibility! It’s time to be in your own power!! The Nine of Wands exemplifies that you are in control of your life and your reality; therefore, nothing is happening to you that is out of your control.
You are in control of your future and you do have free will to make your choices. In spiritual truth, no one or anything has power or authority over you. It is a time to be fearless, and know that these feelings, or thoughts will pass. Everyone goes through this and it is human nature to do so.
Know that you will have the strength, courage and new opportunities to try again. Life is all about learning from our experiences. Like the Phoenix, you will rise above the ashes…EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
Disability is either defined as “a physical or mental condition that limits a person’s movements, senses or activities.” Or “a disadvantage or handicap, especially imposed or recognized by law.”
But disability is a gift and blessing and it has taken me my 31 years to realize this. I was born with mild Cerebral Palsy or CP. The medical term for this is spastic diplegia. This means that my legs are more greatly affected than my arms. Spasticity means the stiffing, pulling, or tightening of muscles. Historically, Cerebral Palsy has also been known as Little’s Disease, named after Dr William John Little who recorded children who had cerebral palsy.
I also have profound hearing loss in my left ear since birth, so if I ask you to repeat something, please don’t offended by this. However, despite having profound hearing loss, it has inspired me to immerse myself in learning Auslan (Australian Sign Language). It has since become a passion of mine, and I hope to be a deaf advocate or deaf ally for the deaf and hard of hearing communities.
For every single human being, we are all given psychic and intuitive abilities. We just need to remember and unlock these natural and gifted abilities. So, in saying this, I was born with my psychic abilities, just as I was born with my disabilities.
I didn’t fully awaken or accept my path towards spirituality, although it has always led me down this path until I was in my late twenties when I experienced my own version of the dark night of the soul. If you are not familiar with this term, “The Dark night of the Soul” means that a fear, worry, phobia or traumatic event in one’s life that alters their direction of life, of purpose, of meaning.
For me, this was my cardiomyopathy. Cardiomyopathy means heart failure and is a chronic heart condition. I was very fortunate to be diagnosed and treated simply by going to my GP, and then seeing a cardiologist. My heart condition is very treatable with medication.
While, in cardio rehabilitation seeing many other people much older than me, didn’t scared me, but it did make me bring about different choices in my life. And we all have choices in life. Which direction to choose, which pathway to follow. Sometimes we are – everyone – are given a set of cards to play, much like card games, oracle cards, tarot cards, and we try our best to be dealt with the best opportunities, and ambitions that we are given.
Nevertheless, with this heart condition, it has taught me to love myself. While it may seem that with heart failure – on the verge of heart-break, or the verge of hopelessness, can I truly bring and build myself back up again. Yes, I can. I became strong, both physical and mentally, emotionally and spiritually, I can rebuild.
It isn’t what we people with disabilities or chronic health conditions can’t do. It is what we can do. There is more than meets the eye with this. People with disabilities are very intelligent who have something to teach humanity. They have something to teach spirituality. Helen Keller, who was born deaf and blind; was thought to unable to communicate due to her disabilities, however, her friend and teacher – Anne Sullivan taught her how to sign though touch. This was how Helen Keller was able to communicate with other people who knew deafblind signing. Helen Keller was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts.
The late Professor Stephen Hawking who had a long-progressed form of motor neurone disease (also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig’s disease) that gradually paralyzed him over the decades. Yet his many contributions to the physics, scientific, cosmological and indeed to the world will not be forgotten. Professor Hawking’s brain that itself has given the world many gifts of understanding towards – physics, science, mathematics, and a deeper awareness of the world in which were wishing to seek out there further in the Universe. Hawking had the drive and the motivation to learn and to question more about the Universe and even black holes, even though his physical body had given him many limitations.
For both these amazing individuals in their own right – Keller and Hawking, didn’t allow their disabilities or health conditions to limit them in any way. And in return, their own contributions to society and hence humanity a bigger picture of how someone with a disability can make a difference to the world, no matter how big or small it may small. In fact, perhaps it is their disabilities or their health conditions that had given them their drive, their own individual purpose in life to keep going. No matter what.
It is true Higher Consciousness, or Divinity that helps or contemplates to negotiate and to compromise to give an ability if one has lost an ability. In other words, when there is a loss there’s also a gain. What many people don’t realise, is that many people who are disabled or who have a chronic health condition have much wisdom, intellect and a sense of humour to share with others. Even if they can’t communicate through the social norms that society expects – there’s always other ways. You can always smile, you can always use friendly gestures. Even just setting an intention to have a heart to heart connection in a soul sense it is all it takes to make that person’s day.
If I had one final thought to tell you today, it would be this. Don’t be sorry or sad for me. I see that every single human being goes through his or her own challenges, obstacles and problems. No one ever has a perfect life. I also believe that someone else will have it much harder, tougher and difficult than I do.
Within our own spiritual journeys, we all need to come to a place of understanding and love. It isn’t what a health condition or disability that defines us. We can’t run from it or hide from it. But we can accept it and live with it. It is one aspect of us, it is a part of us. For me, it is an aspect of me, it is a part of me, and it is apart of my own personal spiritual journey.
As I have mentioned before about playing the cards, in life – sometimes it’s just about keep on playing and enjoying the cards that you have be given from the Divine with the best of your abilities, to the best of your circumstances; with a grateful and joyous heart.

Affirmation: I move forward fearlessly, trusting that each step I take is Divinely guided.

Horus in Ancient Egyptian mythology was the falcon-head sky and sun God. His parents were Osiris and Isis. Horus is one the most significant deities. You may also be familiar with the ‘Eye of Horus”. This is because one of Horus’ eyes was injured in a battle of revenge of his father’s death. The Eye of Horus is a symbol of protection, royal power and good health from the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses.
With the help of beloved Horus, he can help you seek spiritual wisdom and insights with your spiritual and physical sight.

While Eagles aren’t native to Australia, they are very much a beloved and a powerful spirit animal to other Shamanic and Indigenous cultures in other parts of the world, naming the Native Americans in North America.
Eagles are a strong bird. They have talons to grip their prey, and a sharp beak which is used to rip their victims apart. The Eagle has excellent sight to see and spot their prey from great distances; and great heights. The Eagle often cycles above their potential prey monitor and seeking the best perspective, swooping down of what it has its eyes on.
Remember, in nature – everything has a natural and delicate balance. The only real predators in the Animal Kingdom that of man, – which is humankind.
This card today calls you to seek a higher perspective. Sometimes, it is difficult to see where we are, and which direction we truly wish to go. In turn, you may also need to understand and respect the many pathways of other people along your journey as well. This could be your partner or spouse, your children, your parents, or a friend.
Rather than having an argument with another person, or even with yourself; seek to understand the full situation with all the facts. Don’t jump to conclusions or assumptions – rather seek to listen with yourself (with your internal dialogue) and as well with the curious and respect observation of listening to another’s person needs.
The Eagle has remarkable strength and the ability to take charge when he or she needs to. The Eagle knows when and how to rise above situations and when to pick their battles.
Sometimes observation means to listen with non-judgment, with understanding with curiosity and with always with love.
The Eagle encourages you to fly – soar as high as you can!!!

Crystal Colour: Deep orange surrounded by golds and yellows shards Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Sacral Chakra
This crystal has shown up today – working intimately with the element of fire to burn away, fear, worry or any phobia that is associated towards success; or the exact opposite – a fear or failure. We all are striving towards success in our lives. The term ‘success’ will be different for everyone. Is it a success in career? A success in family? A success in a loving and commitment relationship? A success in knowing your self-worth and self-confidence? Why not realise that you can obtain all these beautiful attributes that you strive for?
As human beings and in the Western society, we do put HUGE amounts of pressure of ourselves to be ‘successful’. Yet, our Western culture and society seems to make us believe and think that to be a “success” we need things to be “successful” such as material wealth or technology goods. While both of things is both a blessing and a curse, we need to realise that success is – in all Divine reality; trying.
In other words, if you don’t like a specific problem, why not work as the solution? Why not change our thinking towards working and trying rather than giving up or being defined as a particular type of ‘wealth’ or ‘success’?
The powerful Orpiment crystal helps to bring out the fire energy of the Warrior. While I am not saying to give up all your worldly possessions, (this is up to you!) The Warrior is the one that tries and connects towards strength, courage, embodiment of his or her own self of empowerment. The Warrior lives within their own journey, whatever that may be.
If you have a fear or worry about success, how will you know that you will be successful if you don’t give yourself and your life a try? Every single human being on this planet has been given many gifts and talents. We are all BRAVE. We are all STRONG. We are all WARRIORS.
Success is in the eye of the beholder – success is given to those who wish to use it to benefit all humankind, to help, to heal, to love, to learn and most of all to leave a legacy: no matter how big or small for many more generations to come.
Just try and try again.
So in brief:
• Manifestation crystal
• Allows you to connect to new projects and ideas
• Connects you to the warrior energy within, creating strength and courage in your life
• Aligns success in your life
• Assists in holding and staying focused on clear positive intention
• Supports strength and commitment to self

Citrine crystal or stone is used in many ways for its healing and manifesting properties. This crystal is also known as “burnt amethyst’ since Citrine is created from when purple amethyst is undergoes heat treatment. The name of the crystal Citrine is derived from the Greek word “citron” and has a similar colour to the citrus fruit.
Citrine is also used as a healing and purification crystal to release any toxic or negative energies to rejuvenate and to lift your spiritual self. It is especially suggested to be used for self-healing.
Since Citrine is strongly correlated with the chakra of the Solar Plexus; this chakra helps us through our emotional health and wellbeing. With the connections of the Sun, Citrine helps to balance and harmonize your emotions, feelings and thoughts with a joyful, grateful and appreciative attitude.
Citrine also aids in providing health benefits as well (but I would recommend you still work with a physician for your general health and wellbeing) in the treatment of diseases relating to urinary tract, the kidneys, the digestive system. It can help to regulate imbalances in the thyroid gland and with issues in the gall baller. It can also help improve the function of your endocrine system to relieve constipation, acts as a purifier to counteract harmful effects of pharmaceutical medications, improves blood circulation, gives energy to the body and enhances electrical impulse in your nervous system.
This beautiful and healing crystal is also known as the “Success Stone” since it also brings much abundance and wealth to those with this stone. But keep in mind that abundance is many things – not just money or finances! It can be resources, opportunities, ideas, or even the right people to help you at the right time.
Wealth can be also being seen granted as in money, but it could also be taken in regards as a ‘wealth of good health’ or ‘a wealth of much love of family and friends’ or ‘wealth and success is just trying’. What I mean by this, is that even just trying to achieve our dream – no matter if we are ‘successful’ isn’t my point. It is the fact that you have TRIED at your dream, your ambition, your aspiration and this is your story. You write your own story! There’s many chapters to fill! Our own book of life is never-ending of pure determination and courage.
We shouldn’t give ourselves such a hard time in focusing so much on the material or the financial. Yes, they are important…. but they don’t define us. If we were given everything that we desire…. would we be truly happy? The answer to that question may surprise you.
Sometimes, the most generous souls on Earth are the poorest. When you give your also receive in a Divine way. It may not happen in the way that you hope, anticipate or expect to, but no good deed – not matter how big or small goes unnoticed.
When we all have an attitude towards gratitude, then all of us, every single soul will be truly abundant and will prosper.
So, in brief:
• Purification crystal on all levels
• Assists in manifesting abundance and wealth
• Shifts old patterns of negativity
• Brings in the joy and magic of life
With love and abundant blessings to you and your loved ones,
Based on 1 Corinthians 13 (can be found in the Jewish Torah and Old Testament of the Christian Bible and the Holy Quran)
“Love is always patient and kind. It is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude nor selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful. Love does not take pleasure in other peoples’ sins but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse to trust, to hope, to forgive, and to ensure come what may.”
Full Moon in CAPRICORN JUNE Astrology 2018 (Also known as Strawberry Moon)
The Full Moon on Thursday June 28, 2018 is at 6° Capricorn. The Full Moon June 2018 astrology is dominated by a powerful conjunction to Saturn retrograde. When Saturn is in Retrograde and this has commenced on April 17 at 9° Capricorn and will ends on September 6 at 2° Capricorn; this means that here was a problem with self-discipline or avoiding responsibility in a former life.
Some examples of this could be: due to illness, immaturity or disrespect, you may have neglected looking after your loved ones. Perhaps you failed to earn a living to support your parents or ran out on your partner and children. There will be some lessons or extra effort required this life to pay back this karmic debt. You must learn the lessons, so you don’t have to go through this difficult cycle again. This can only be achieved through self-reflection and even through past-life regression therapy.
Coming back to the Full Moon, during the next two weeks you are likely to feel more serious than usual and experience sadness, guilt, fear, restriction or inhibition or the inability to express oneself.
What is a Strawberry Moon?
It looks like a strawberry, No, sorry! It won’t be red or juicy, because the so-called Strawberry Moon got its meaning by appearing around the time in North America when wild strawberries begin to ripen. Like many of the names for full moons, this one dates back to Native Americans, in this case to the Algonquin, the first native peoples encountered by European settlers in the New World.
Other names for June’s full moon include the Hot Moon for its association with the year’s highest temperatures, and the Rose Moon for coinciding with blooming flowers
What Does the Full Moon in Capricorn Mean?
When the moon is full in Capricorn, we’re likely to feel this tension even more. That’s because the sun is in the opposite sign of Cancer which, as the moon’s home sign, is all about emotions, instincts, and moods. If there’s an imbalance in our lives between the objective and the subjective, the practical and the emotional, we’re likely to see it reflected to us through situations, encounters, and events that play out around this full moon.
The sign of the sea-goat may not be the most comfortable place for a full moon, but that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. True, we all want a little Cancerian TLC now and then… but sometimes Capricorn’s brand of “tough love” is what we actually need.
Ruled by cosmic disciplinarian Saturn, this moon teaches us to gain mastery over our emotions, so we control them, they don’t control us. It helps us establish boundaries, so we don’t take things too personally, or take on too much of other people’s baggage. Under this full moon, we can develop a better sense of when it’s safe and appropriate to express our feelings, and when we’re better off keeping a stiff upper lip.
Self-discipline is what the full moon in Capricorn is all about. Sure, we all have our moods, and most of the time it’s better to work with the natural ebb and flow of our energies rather than against it. But there are some things in life that we have to do whether we’re in the mood or not. It’s called “adulting”—and if we’re in need of a reminder, this full moon shows us how it’s done!
Full Moon Summary
Saturn retrograde so close to the June 28 Full Moon will make you feel sad, guilty, hesitant, fearful, restricted or confined. Relationship problems, cold emotions, negative behavior patterns and bad habits could make your life more difficult. But at the same time, you will want to break free of such limiting factors.
A positive fixed star (Kaul Borealis) is even closer to the full moon which gives the initiative and resources to make the changes you want. A positive aspect to Uranus also bring opportunity and the desire for positive change. However, the relative weakness of Uranus and the fixed star compared to the restrictive, inhibiting powers of Saturn retrograde means you will have to show great will power and determination to force through the change you want or need.
Working in your advantage is the previous new moon which also lasts for another two weeks up to the July 12 Solar Eclipse. The June 2018 New Moon continues to bring good fortune and protection to yourself and your loved ones. It is a sign of good fortune and lasting happiness.

The Mirror Effect is the sole intention to purposely protect yourself (your loved ones, your pets, your possessions, or anything that you value or treasure) against any shape or form of negativity, toxicity or lower energies. You can also use this technique to prevent yourself to avoid spreading negativity to other people, that you may unintentionally give to other people, places or objects. Remember how your parents taught you when you were a child: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all?” This is the same principle and intention.
People who are toxic, or who have toxic or negative intentions cannot stand to look at themselves in the mirror. These people whom we, as lightworkers are avoiding at all costs to the health and wellbeing of our physical, emotional, mental, spiritual health and to those of which we love dearly.
Why do these individuals who are so toxic don’t want to see themselves in the mirror? The answer is simple. They aren’t of the light and are in the shadows of darkness. They aren’t living their lives of true authenticity. They are choosing a direction of energy and psychic vampires. They aren’t choosing responsibility towards their own personal and spiritual development. They are playing the victimhood.
However, it is up to every single individual to want to change – and having the true and authentic enlightenment to CHANGE. We can only control our own’s actions, thoughts, words, and consequences…. We aren’t responsible for everyone else’s.
Before knights went into battle, they would need to be suited up with their heavy armor to protect them. However, a silk cloth was needed to not only to protect their skin, and to keep them warm, but – it gave them more protection than the actual armor. If for example, an arrow went into a knight, and through his armor, in most instances, the arrow could be pulled out, because of the silk cloth.
In additional with this Mirror Effect is to visualize a beautiful white light surrounding you, (and your loved ones, your pets, your possessions, and anything that you love and treasure) for walking hand in hand with Divinity and in sequence with your spiritual team.
You know in spiritual truth that no one can hurt you, and that you have all the spiritual tools you need to empower yourself and those that you love.

The Seven Factors of Enlightenment – Oldest Buddhist Teachings
These Seven factors of Enlightenment are mental attitudes or values that are from the oldest Buddhist teachings to prepare any individual to a desirable state of being mindfully aware of any situation, issue or person at any given moment.
So, let’s briefly…. look!
The awareness and the ability to be fully present; an awareness of the reality of things; it is considered an antidote to delusion to be in a clear and relaxed awareness of what is going on around you, and to focus on any topic, person or issue. A state of no distractions.
Investigation requires that we investigate that Dharma (Universal Truth) for ourselves. We seek our own self-reflection and consideration of reality. As the Buddha said:
“Believe nothing no matter what you read it or who said it, unless it agrees with your common season and observation.”
Buddha is suggesting here that we are not to practice the Dharma simply because he said so, rather, to understand and experience it for ourselves. Buddha wanted us to utilize our minds to the fullest capacity…. not be empty minded!
Diligence means to keep on persevere and not to give up. We live in a world where there are many distractions – such as various technologies for example, or even a lack of understanding or communication. This applies to both a global and personal level of an individual. However, with great persistence, patience and perseverance anything is possible!
Joy and gratefulness accompanies useful thinking. It can help you see, believe and help you try something new. You aren’t practicing mindfulness, because you must; you are practicing mindfulness to transform your life; to enhance the quality of your life, to bring more contentment and joy into your life. In turn, this brings more joy, and brings an attitude of gratitude.
Tranquility refers to our willingness to find inner peace. By inner peace, I mean to find relaxation. This represents the ability to manage one’s stress or anxiety. For example, when you take a deep breath of air in, when you are feeling upset, angry, nervous or sad…. you are engaging in tranquility. It is knowing when you need to find or need relaxation that is very important.
Concentration is the ability to focus. When we strength our focus on our ability to concentrate, it gives us real insight into our lives. But, it is something that we must develop and strength over time. Improving our concentration helps us in many ways as focusing us on something we’re studying, new projects at work, improving our listening or verbal skills, etc. Concentration is like a lamp, the stronger it is, the more of the mind we can see.
Equanimity is one of the deepest factors of all, and one of the hardest. It represents facing the difficulties of life, our challenges, our problems, without becoming attached to them. I know, this is a strange concept, yet, most profound! Equanimity is the ability of not allowing or the ability to let your challenges, obstacles or problems become bigger than you. In other words; when something bad happens, we become stressed or angry about it, we often make a situation worse than it is. If we face a problem with equanimity, then we don’t let a problem become bigger than ourselves.
As human beings, we have a tendency in our lives to make things larger than they are. Equanimity is out ability to resist that. It is all about taking a different perspective of seeing things – our problems and challenges in a different light. With these Seven factors towards Enlightenment, we can learn more about ourselves, and what is truly important in our lives.

“Dear Archangel Raphael, thank you for motiving and guiding me to drink more water so that my health, energy, and appetite stay at optimal levels throughout each day.”
As human beings for our overall health and wellness, we are encouraged to stay hydrated and to drink water. Dehydration is the complete opposite of hydration which can cause a range of imbalances and lowers your energy levels. Depending on an individual’s age and personal health, it is ALWAYS advised to consult with your medical physician, and/or other specialists.
Hydration can also be applied to taking a much needed perspective towards your own understanding of selfcare. Have you been taking care of yourself as much as you possibly can? Have you been getting more or less sleep? Have you been eating a healthy, balanced diet? And have you considered to take some time out just for yourself?
Spiritual hydration or spiritual vacation is a term I have created as a way to help lightworkers (and granted we are ALL LIGHTWORKERS!) to take a much needed break from our work. It doesn’t mean that we don’t love our work anymore, nor do we hate it; but this time allows us time to ENERGIZE.
Many people don’t realize that spiritual work is a lot of hard work. It is very draining – physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We all need to energize ourselves in order to continue with the work that we love and that we want to do. It is indeed a service to help others, and again for a lot of spiritual people – PAID SERVICES.
As much as we would love to help the world, we would also love to earn a living to support ourselves. It is like any other job, it has it’s ups and downs. It is like any other job, it has it’s ups and downs. However, I can’t speak for every single, spiritual being or lightworker, or one who has their own self-employed business, but for me, and my Divine purpose, (which is also happens to this wonderful job that I humbly appreciated!) is to enlighten…..to enlighten and enhance the quality of life of all individuals of this planet – to bring more love and light into being.
We all need time to rest and recuperated. Spiritual hydration is just as important as taking a glass of water anytime you need to, when you feel slightly lightheaded, or when you feel tired. How is this any different?
So take this time to hydrate your heart, your soul, and your mind. You are a courageous being with a lot of love and light to shine upon this world.
Additional Meanings of this card: Avoid dehydration substances such as salt, alcohol, caffeine, and dried fruit. Replace soda with water to keep your body hydrated. Switch to higher-quality drinking water. Drink water throughout the day. Exercise (or use a sauna to detoxify through perspiration.
• The earth’s axis of rotation is tilted approximately 23.5 degrees. That means that different parts of earth receive different amount of sunlight through the year, resulting in seasons and solstices.
• While the summer solstice is the longest day of the year, it’s not the hottest. Like an oven, it takes time for it to heat up – just like the Northern Hemisphere summer! While the earth may absorb a lot of light that day, it takes weeks to release that heat — meaning the hottest day of the year occurs later in the summer, in July or August.
• Stonehenge was likely used to mark solstices. While much about the Stonehenge, the famed stone monument located in the United Kingdom, remains a mystery, some scientists believe it was used to mark solstices when it was built about 5,000 years ago.
• The Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere is December 21st or December 22nd.
Facts about the WINTER SOLSTICE:
• The Winter Solstice is noted for countries living in South of the Equator, or in the Southern Hemisphere.
• The winter solstice is the day with the fewest hours of sunlight in the whole year.
• There is a theory that Stonehenge was built in the Winter Solstice (which in the Northern Hemisphere, North of the Equator) but there is still much mystery about Stonehenge.
• The word solstice comes from Latin sol “sun” and sistere which means to “to stand still.”
• The Winter Solstice for the Northern Hemisphere is December 21st.
“Often the stillness of the night, when all nature is asleep about me, there comes a gentle rapping at the door of my heart. I open it; and a voice inquires: “Pokagon, what of your people? What will their future be?” My answer is: “Mortal man has not the power to draw aside the veil of the unborn time to tell the future of his race. That gift belongs to the Divine alone. But it is given to him to closely judge the future by the present, and the past.”
Crystal for the Week: AZURITE – EXPANDED AWARENESS

For the week commencing: Monday, June 18, 2018
Crystal Colour: Vibrant Ranges of Blues Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Third Eye or Brow Chakra
What is Expanded Awareness or even Consciousness awareness? This means to be awareness of something far greater than ourselves. We need to release the illusion of all knowing to perhaps there is more curiosity of what we don’t know. Even as lightworkers, realists, scientists, teachers, spiritualists, psychics, healers, mediums and every single human being – we aren’t meant to know everything. This is obvious fact of life.
However, what we can know about life, is seeing things from a higher perspective of light and love. Azurite the crystal of both healing, wisdom and opening our third eye, brings our balance into seeing what needs to be seen, from our personal point of view, as well as the perspective of other people or other external factors involved. There isn’t no right or wrong answers either. It is just known and accepting what information you are been shown, by your intuition. It is important to trust it.
Recently, I have personally expanded my awareness about one big taboo topic: death. Many people are fearful about death and dying, and I just had a though: If you had the choice – would you prefer to a life filled with best quality of life, or the best quantity of life? Of course, this question is very difficult to answer, as no one can determine the extent of one’s life….as this is greatly determined by the Divine – and by the individual’s soul.
I don’t mean to upset anyone by this question, but merely to get you thinking: we need to let go of misconceptions around taboo topics. We need to realize that we can, and we should, question the world in which we live in. How can we make things fair in our communities – local, state, national and global? We don’t need to listen to streams of authority either. We all each have a responsibility to expand our awareness of truth and honesty with all of humanity.
There is more than meets the eye when you see a picture or hear a sound. Granted, everyone may interpret this differently, but it is time for a cause of action, and a cause of change.
For each person, their own expanded awareness will be different and unique, but we all need to be open and accepting with these experiences. When you are open to change, you can create change. Transformation is possible with nonjudgement and acceptance of self and of others.
Expanded Awareness allows all of us, to openly talk about change. Humanity deserves to be curious and mindful of everything and there’s nothing wrong in questioning it.
Trust and have hope.
So, in brief:
• Connects to and enhances your intuition; creating trust to follow your own guidance
• Expands awareness and allows you to see things from a different perspective, allowing transformation and healing to occur
• Dissolves old belief systems, concepts and misconceptions
• Opens you to vision and insight into your life and of others

Wisdom for the day of:Monday, June 18, 2018
“The rise of the mana (the power of) Maori is a positive and liberating experience which is part of the International struggle by indigenous populations such as the Maoris, for self-determination, cultural survival and escape from domination.”
– Sydney Moko Mead,
When we view the planet from the perspective of spiritual laws that rule the Universe, it seems unbelievable that our indigenous populations have to struggle to survive. Yet, this is the world that we have created.
What a small step to it is to see that, just as the planet needs all the many varieties of flora and fauna, we need the voices and wisdom of these Native people.
Only when we see that we need variety for survival that will we will truly begin to live by spiritual laws.
If the Creator created these differences, then they, like we, are governed by spiritual laws.
(Courtesy of the Rider-Waite Tarot Cards by A.E Waite & Pamela Coleman Smith)
While this card does suggest loneliness, loss and financial failure – to me this card is a reminder to take a step back and think about yourself for a change. We all need to consider self-care and self-kindness for ourselves first and foremost. Many of us, are parents, guardians or carers of children, parents, nieces, nephews, partners/spouses, pets and other family or friends, and we are always caring for someone else’s needs. For today, even just for a short time, this card is a symbol to care for yourself.
There is an enormous amount of pressure to be adults and to have many responsibilities to function and care for others – bills to pay, financial stability, emotional and mental support, health and well-being of others, we seem to forget in our society, that we are children too, just learning the ropes of how to survive.
Living day-to-today life isn’t easy and granted that one’s life daily living is indeed very different to another’s person’s daily living. We shouldn’t judge another’s circumstances of living. Because who knows…. we could very easy, be in that person’s shoes.
So only come from love, come from peace and remain in a place of understanding of another soul.

Awaken as I take you deep My truth reveals you’ve been asleep You’ll see the world with bright new eyes Assist those who still live in lies.
What is truth? Truth is both seeking our inner and outer being of ourselves. This also means to authentically live our truth. So, have you been living, speaking and being with and one with your own personal truth? In many Shamanic healing practices worldwide, plant medicine is used to gain and heighten clarity, journey work, and induce visions. Plant medicine has been used for thousands of years. There’s archaeological evidence to suggest that plant medicine, particularly herbs, goes back 60,000 years ago!
However, plant medicine is more than just portions and synthetic pills. These healing and natural remedies were and are still given from the Gods, from Divinity, to discover who you truly are. You are given the choice to accept or reject these remedies and healing properties. Why? Because we are given the choice to seek our own personal journey. And to make our decision to whether we are truly ready to accept our own pathway – whatever pathway that may be, with open arms.
The truth that we are seeking can only been shown to us, is when an individual is ready, and he or she, knows that they are ready. To distinguish between the dream state and the clear state, you are called to decide, a choice, and to live your truth. If you feel brave, courageous and strong – and you do decide to take the plant medicine – know that you can’t go back……for the truth stays with you….to guide you, and awaken you to the Great Spirit, for you then know you will then see our world in a new light. You will be shown to make change. You will be encouraged to seek the bigger picture.
The New Moon on Wednesday June 13, 2018 is located at 22° Gemini. Gemini, whose ruling planet is Mercury, is the planet of communication. This is a time of true happiness and contentment.
This is a time of good fortunate, lasting happiness and protection for both you and your loved ones and is very fortunate to have the busiest part of the sky for the major fixed stars – and the new moon lands right in the middle of it! This is only separated by only 0°20′.
This June 2018 New Moon is a fantastic opportunity to set new goals, and for this reason, you may be encouraged or motivated to start a new project. The stars give the skills needed to do well in the business.
What is a New Moon?
A new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. Sun conjunct (joined or united) Moon gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative.
So, this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.
The effects of the June 13 New Moon will last four weeks up to the July 12 Solar Eclipse. The best time for making a fresh start and for beginning new projects is during the first two weeks of this new moon cycle. This waxing phase of the Moon lasts from June 13 to the June 28 Full Moon.
What is a Supermoon?
A supermoon is a new or full moon closely coinciding with perigee, the moon’s closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.
According to the original definition of supermoon – coined by Richard Nolle in 1979 who is a professional astrologer, – a full moon or new moon must come within about 224,000 miles or 361,000 km of our planet, as measured from the centers of the moon and Earth, to be considered a supermoon.
To come in 2018, the three Supermoons to happen June 13, 2018, July 13, 2018 and August 11th, 2018.
The second of these three new moon supermoons on July 13, 2018, will present the closest new moon supermoon of 2018. Of course, these new moons will be invisible to the eye, unless you’re able to witness the partial solar eclipse on Friday, July 13, 2018. Just check and make sure to take proper precautions…. don’t look directly into a solar eclipse…. ever!
The Astrology of June 13, 2018 – SUPERMOON
The June 13 new moon at 22°44′ Gemini falls right in the middle of the busiest part of the sky for fixed stars. In fact, the new moon is conjunct 8 major fixed stars in 4 Constellations from 21° to 25° Gemini.
The two fixed stars that have a great influence on this New Moon/Supermoon are:
Fixed Star Mintaka in the Belt of Orion gives good fortunate and protection to both yourself and your loved ones. Both the Sun and Moon with Mintaka signifies good fortunate lasting happiness and notoriety. It also makes people discreet cautious, somewhat changeable, active, sharp and more alert in business. However, it also gives a public position, many enemies more successful in business, blindness of at least one eye, new and influential friends, valuable gifts, and a love of respectful women.
In additional this fixed start gives strength, energy, industry, organizing abilities, a sharp mind and good memory. The Constellation Orion gives a strong and dignified stance on natured of self, self-confidence, inconstancy, courage, arrogance, rebellion, violence, impiety, prosperity in trade and in particularly wonderful opportunities to travel for business or for pleasure abroad. Nevertheless, with anything with astrology, there is a need with balance, danger will present itself, of treachery and poison. In mundane astrology, this is the constellation of war, which is harmful to livestock, and is productive of unpredictable weather.
Fixed Star El Nath, is in the Bull’s North Horn brings forth good forth eminence and neutrality for good and evil. This does bring business success, honor through science, religion, spirituality, philosophy, however, you may find differences in opinions with others, and detriment due to your partner, or relative. The Constellation Taurus proclaimers the results the beginnings of large political undertakings. Wild animals who are associated with this constellation, will be dangerous to men.
The great Steller influence is Fixed Star Capella in the Charioteer is the brightest of the eight stars so will have a strong influence on this June Super Moon. After all, is it only 0°38′ behind the Sun and Moon. It is also the most fortunate of these stars and gives honor, wealth, eminence, renown, a public position of trust and eminent friends. It makes people careful, timorous, inquisitive, very fond of knowledge and particularly of novelties. While it may make many people interested and keen to explore a love a learning, studiousness, and interested in research, it will indeed make others odd, frustrated and annoyed, persistent in their dreams, or inquisitive curiosity.
Conclusion of this Supermoon of June 2018:
All in all, this Supermoon, will bring forth to you and your loved ones, new beginnings.

We all have ancestors, those of whom have walked before us, those of whom have learnt valuable lessons in life, and those of whom have since passed on into the afterlife; the spiritual world; to Heaven.
While they are not physically here with us, their spiritual presence is still very much alive and in existence here. For what they only knew when they were living, to what they know now – in the spiritual world, they would love to pass on their guidance, wisdom and love to their forbearer in the living.

The Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine – A Need for Harmony
As the end of 2017 and the beginning of this year, there was a change in embracing the Divine Feminine. More women are speaking out and while I applaud these women coming forward of the #MeToo movement that has spread worldwide, for either speaking out, even pressing charges against those who are accused of sexual assault or harassment.
But I will not be speaking about individual cases. I am not a lawyer, nor a therapist but one who is curious to learn and see on a deeper spiritual level. I am not here to argue who is guilty or who is innocent, but simply understand. I am not a feminist, and I don’t condone any form of violence against anyone – this includes both men, women and children.
Throughout humanity’s history, men seem to have a lot of power, status and control over women. Yet, as we are all striving towards equality, both men and women, we need to realise our own sense of responsibility in the world.
What I mean, by this is; that we all have Divine Masculine and Feminine energies within our soul. We are all human beings, here to experience life, and to make the best choices within our lives.
The role of men has dramatically changed over the years. More women are in the workforce, taking more ‘male’ roles in a variety of occupations such as CEOs, engineers, and scientists. But yet, you wouldn’t find many of these women in these respective occupations worldwide. Yet, you would also discover men taking more ‘traditional’ women’s workplace roles such as nurses, teachers and caregivers. Besides, a job is still a job, and if anyone has the relevant qualifications, life experience, and true motivation to undertake of these respective occupations. Why not?
We are not purely defined by our gender, but in society, we have labels put before us. We each were assigned a gender at birth, and hence for our future has been already sealed. But there’s no
reason why we can’t change our thinking towards the social responsibility of every human being.
Words are as powerful as actions:
Words have a profound impact on everything and everyone. Words themselves have a vibration to change our emotions, our thinking and on our soul. While the Divine Feminine is ready to speak to the world about her aching pains and need for equality, she needs to realise that she needs to work in counterpart with the Divine Masculine. The Divine Masculine himself, is hurting. He is feeling out of balance, out of harmony and in turn wants to be heard.
Social responsibility worldwide:
Men are more likely to commit suicide, and men’s mental health needs to be taken seriously. While our perception of what is truly ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ is now evolving and changing, we all have a social responsibility to think for ourselves and therefore act for ourselves. We all are accountable for our actions and our words. Both men and women need to realise that to have equality, begins with conversation with your fellow counterpart, and your fellow human being.
Good men, and Good women:
There are good, hardworking and dedicated men who are good fathers, husbands, spouses and partners. Even so, in many tries worldwide the judicial systems seem to favour women. While each individual case is different in different circumstances, men also have rights towards seeing their children. Parental alienation for both men and women is a huge issue worldwide. This means for a variety of issues, (but not unlimited to) either mental health issues, financial issues, regressed emotional issues, that one partner/spouse refuses to allow the other partner/spouse access to their children. Or in criminal cases, in countries around the world; things may take a more sinister turn that could be affecting the wellbeing of our children.
So how can we assure that we are good men and good women? We need to teach our children, and even learn as adults the act or discernment (judgment). What is fair to you may not be fair to another person, but there are always two sides to every story.
Can we all be fair and considerate towards one another? I’m not speaking about favoring one person over another, or one gender over the opposite sexes, but now, it is the time to start questioning the fairness and justice of all legal and civil liabilities of all individuals.
Stay humble in the face of adversity:
Why is it important to stay humble? Everyone wants and seeks justice for all people. We need to have kindness and compassion with our hearts. We each all have flaws and we all make mistakes. But, the reason why it is important to have harmony and balance within the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine is to understand that our gender shouldn’t define us. We may not be of the same gender, but we certainly can still have the same compassion and love for another human being.
In conclusion, everyone has a responsibility towards make a change. It is not what separates us, but what brings us together. We still have a long way to go with equality, and equality for all human beings, even so, I would like to challenge our thinking to seeing a bigger picture. There’s serious and pressing issues towards creating change for all people (men, women and children). Yet, we all need to understand each other and begin a conversation about creating this important change. I know and you know that it won’t happen overnight, it may even take years. But if you want to have change, you need to create this change.
It’s not about fighting or trying to get what you want in life, but to understand that our world is changing. What I am trying to say, is that we all have a social responsibility towards harmony. Both men and women wish to be and heard, but now is the time to make this happen. We need listen and understand each other.
The question is: are we willing to do this? Why put labels on everything including our genders, but essentially to see each other, and ourselves as human beings.
We all deserve to love, compassion and understanding. When the world realise this, then we will all have balance and harmony. Isn’t it time that we see each other as human beings rather than being seen purely by gender, our sex, or own ‘labels’ that we put on ourselves and by our own society?
Crystal for the Week: MORGANITE – RELATIONSHIP HEALING
(Courtesy of The Healing Oracle Crystal Cards by Rachelle Charman)
For the week commencing: Monday, May 21, 2018
Crystal Colour: Opague and translucent pink Related Chakras associated with this Crystal: Heart
This powerful and precious crystal, which is the grandmother stone of the Rose Quartz, focusing on relationship healing. There are many levels – including the most important relationship close to us, which is ourselves.
Relationships, whether it be platonic, family relations, or romantic focus on having love, compassion and kindness for other people. Therefore, we need to realise that we are all Universally connected to the Divine love.
We each have the capacity to heal from past relationships – especially those that we may have hurt or been hurt or even self-sabotage within our heart chakras. The heart chakra has the influence to love as well as be loved in return. Our heart chakras can and will be healed with the help of Morganite.
While using Morganite, we can release and let go of old stale energy of our past; and therefore, have courage, strength and determination to go there and find love.
No matter what form of love you’re seeking…..love is eternal and powerful. While it may cause one to do crazy things, love is all we truly need to see, to believe that we all deserve love, and this includes Universal Love, being one with Divine Intervention.
So in brief:
• Connects to the love of the Divine
• Enhances love of all aspects of self
• Releases self-sabotage relationship patterns, to allow loving unconditionally
• Heals old relationship wounds, as the heart opens.
• Creates a sacred space to heal from disconnection between two souls in a Divine relationship

“I feel good when I can help others”
As we are all searching towards finding a purpose in our lives, and in turn we are also evolving further through our own individual soul DNA or blueprint; we are yearning towards making the world a better place. Therefore a soul yearns for service.
Service involves both giving and receiving – this harmonious balance is an act of both kindness and compassion. Our unique souls are raised through this vibration as a way to not only help other people, other animals or wildlife or our worldly environment but to learn something itself.
Service isn’t about getting something you want, but rather helping someone else who is going through a difficult, struggling or challenging phrase in their life. When we are at service with someone, we are humble, we are more at peace, we are in our integrity and we are focused in helping another soul’s quality of life.
Service doesn’t need to solely focused on material or financial gain, yet it’s best to use your best discernment when it does come to this pathway. Understandably we all need to make a living in the world, but be open and willing to give rather than receive.
However, focus on the heart chakra. This chakra is based on compassion, kindness and love. It’s time to let go our of our ego, our own personal commitments and just for one simple act of kindness and humility, can make all the difference in helping someone else.
Service towards others will influence and inspire others to ‘pay it forward’ in someway, shape or form. No matter how big or small this gesture is, it has a profound impact giver’s soul, and the receiver’s soul.
Remain humble, acts of kindness and compassionate are always rewarded in some way.

“You are flying high right now; which may threaten others. But don’t descend, because others will soon because inspired by your example.”
Jealousy is a very powerful emotion. So why are people jealous of other people’s success in career, relationships, health, or other areas of one’s life? Perhaps we all desire something that we truly cannot have, or we don’t wish to work as hard on a particular goal that may take time, patience, valued resources and personal expense, or we seem to shuddered off other’s people’s dreams because we don’t simply understand them.
The reason why I am writing to you, like this is to challenge you. At the moment, you are high in spirit, you are one with the Universe. Even though you may feel lost, alone, or unloved – the Universe and the Divine are telling you that you are going in the right direction – you do have a Divine purpose to fulfill.
If you truly believe you have a dream, a goal, an aspiration to fulfil in this world, there is no reason why you can’t do this. Don’t allow anyone or anything from stopping you from achieving your dreams.
Yes, other people may be jealous or threaten by your success, your passion, your motivation and your enthusiasm towards your dreams. That’s their problem. They are just upset that they didn’t think or act on their own personal or professional ambitions themselves.
However, remember that we greatly inspire everything and everyone through love, compassion and understanding one another. So lead by example, rather than getting angry or upset – have compassion. Realise that everyone has goals to fulfill. Understand and motivate yourself and your loved ones to try, try, and try again.
Life is about seeing the experiences and appreciating these experiences, and not to the failures, the jealous or the envy of one another.
Learn to understand, Love to understand, and Live to Understand.

This card is a reflection that someone, a beloved family member, or a dear friend, or even a wonderful furry baby who is now in the Spirit shares a Golden Memory with you today.
A memory is a treasured gift from our past. This card symbolizes the thoughts, emotions, actions, and words that are associated with this treasured memory that you and this person, man, woman or pet or animal share with you. Look back on a golden, happy and joyful memory. Remember all the wonderful things you did together. Because your loved ones, remember this fondly too!
While we can’t change the past, we can learn and appreciate the time that we had with our loved ones. It is perfectly okay to still miss them, to still grieve for them, even if it’s been many years later since their passing.
Life is apart of death, as death is apart of life. It is the Universal balance of everything. Love is Universal, and in all faiths, in all cultures, it is eternal. Our deep connections with our loved ones are as strong as they were when they were with us in this world.
So, please don’t be sad, your loved ones are happy, and want you to be happy. Their gift to you is that life and love is a gift. Treasure this with all your heart, and make the most of it.
Card of the Day: CHANGE YOUR LIFE – ARCHANGEL CHAMUEL
(Courtesy of the Archangel Power Tarot Cards by Doreen Virtue & Radleigh Valentine)
“A sudden revelation that offers freedom. Break free of procrastination. Embrace the opportunities that change brings. ”
Archangel Chamuel, also known as Kamael, Camiel, or Samael. name means “One who seeks God.” (In Christianity, he is seen as Saint Anthony) Archangel Chamuel who helps anyone seeking to find something which is lost, that needs to be found. This could be lost items, like your car keys or even finding your faith.
Chamuel is also a beloved Angel of showing unconditional love and peace to everyone. He is the Angel of peaceful relationships, and is known to help to resolve any form of conflict between friends, romantic partners, or even acquaintances.
With this card today, Chamuel is also the Angel of higher wisdom and of personal peace, forgiveness and perspectives. He is asking you to see things from a greater afoot. While Archangel Chamuel can see things from a higher vantage point, he can help navigate you to where you need to be and what you need to understand. Challenges, obstacles and experiences help you to become stronger, wiser and courageous to know that you can change your life if you choose to. Nothing, not a person, situation or thing is preventing you from achieving your dreams.
While things may be difficult to comprehend, of why things happen, change is inevitable. There is a reason for it. Life is an experience. Learn from the past, live in in the present, and hope for the future.
Chamuel is also strongly associated with the Zodiac astrological sign Taurus. Since we are experiencing a New Moon in May 15th, 2018, this means that personal transformation of the soul and spirit is possible. Taurus being an Earth sign, calls for you to become grounded in your being. We may also experience unexpected weather patterns or changes, unexpected sickness, mood swings, and this is due to us needing time out to rest, recuperate and get grounded again.
Look after oneself is essential in terms of the New Moon. It gives you the opportunity to surrender completely to Spirit, to your own Spirit to relax and know that an awakening of self. As you do this new opportunities will come to you. Believe come what may.
Finally, Archangel Chamuel helps each of us have healthy, mutual and respectful relationships; especially the one with ourselves. Relationships and friendships are both give and take, or ying and yang, – one of balance and harmony. In order to be fair to those whom you love dearly, remember to show unconditional love and acceptance towards these loved ones. This does include yourself.
Crystal of the Week: SELENITE – SPRITUAL AWAKENING
(Courtesy of the Crystal Reading Cards: The Healing Oracle by Rachelle Charman)
Crystal Colours: White to translucent with striations
Related Chakras: Crown Chakra (but balances your other chakras)
The Selenite crystal acts as a vacuum to cleanse, clean and purify the Crown chakra as it is your key to the Universal life-force energy of information, wisdom and vibration of the entire Universe and therefore of your being. When this crystal is used in a purification, it releases and cleanses old wounds, old energies so that new and wondrous things can occur. You could say that this could be your own personal life-saver of powerful Universal life-force energy!
When the Crown chakra is open, purified and cleansed, all your other chakras are therefore cleansed and are in Universal balance. Due to this crystal’s structure – the vibrational energy that harmoniously balances and purifies your entire chakras and energy fields may feel like a lightening bolt – because of it’s extremely powerful healing properties. And therefore awakens your spirit for learning.
Keeping in mind that everyone’s spiritual awakening will be different and unique. Sometimes we may experience ‘the dark night of the soul’. This means to go through challenges or obstacles in order to find a sense of purpose, a sense of belonging and a sense of making a difference not only for yourself but for our world. Indeed, in many religions and cultures have many different perspectives of what it means to go through ‘the dark night of the soul’, however, it means to find your own spiritual pathway.
So how can you know that you have go through a spiritual awakening? For everyone the answer will be different, because our journeys’ are different. However, let me remember you, that we al have the ability and the skills to connect to God or the Divine (however you wish to resonate with this Divine Intervention). As long as your trust your heart, and believe in yourself – anything is possible.
Finally, let me leave you with this. Remember to use the ‘I AM….” pretense. This is because this quote can help you connect to your higher self. “I am connected to the Divine”. “I am one of strength and courage”, for example.
So in brief:
Works as a vacuum cleaner to purify and cleanse the aura
Opens and stimulates the crown chakra, bringing the Divine light of the Cosmos
Allows you to move forward in strength
Connects you to your higher self and “I am” presence
A compass is very much life, and is a symbol of life. A compass is use to direct us when we get lost.
A compass comes into fruition the moment we come into mutual existence – therefore in other words, the moment that we are born. It is a circular device that is a symbol of life because life is eternal, life is everlasting and there no end, life always goes on.
Why is a compass necessary in life? A compass is a navigational tool used to help us to navigate where we wish to go in our life. It can point is in the direction and the choices that leads us down a pathway of freewill.
A compass can help you go north, south, east and west, but it is so much more than that. Perhaps it can help you navigate away from cold, hot, stormy or frosty weather – and this represents perhaps a path that may not be the best pathway or choice for you. Perhaps it may mean getting involved with the wrong type of people, getting involved with drugs or alcohol, or any other particular kind of choices that aren’t aligned towards your values, your morals and to your highest good.
This compass – which is indeed your own, also helps to navigate you through Rocky Mountains, sandy slopes, desert storms, and dusty highways. These landscapes represent the challenges and obstacles that you face. While life itself has its ups and downs; as human beings we all have life lessons to learn. Granted that we can’t avoid everything and – your compass know this – because sometimes your compass will lead you towards a path that you will need to walk down.
So why your compass, my compass or anyone’s compass does trends us down a path that we may not like, or may not want? It is because we do have things to learn in order to make us stronger, wiser and more knowledgeable people because of these experiences. The compass is wise, and knows about balance, integrity and life learning.
Sometimes a compass will lead on a road backwards too. Why do you think this may occur? To acknowledge how far you have come and how far you have grown since learning this vital and karmic lessons.
Can we have control over our compass? The answer is both yes and no. In some decisions towards our free will choices we do. However, through Divine Intervention, there is perhaps another Divine source greater than us that wishes for us to gather a better understanding of the Universe and of ourselves that controls what we wish to learn, and how we learn it.
While life is both an experience and a journey, the compass is seen as a guide. The real way in which to live life, to believe that this is your life, is to LIVE IT.
The real learning of life….starts with you. You are both your own student and teacher.

“Dear God and Archangel Raphael, thank you for healing and answering my prayer of (ADD THE DETAILS OF YOUR PRAYER.)”
No matter what religious or cultural pathway or affiliation one feels drawn to, either from birth or later in one’s life, prayer is used in many ways to bring comfort, bring solicitude, brings closes and brings foundation between a special relationship between you and a Divine Intervention. Granted, there are many names for Higher or Divine Intervention, such as God, Adonai, Allah, Creator or the Divine, but each is one’s personal experience between him or her. However you name this powerful and unique energy, is completely up to you.
So why is prayer still essential in our everyday existence? It is a form of strong communication between us and Unique Spirit or Life-Force that connects us all. We are interconnected in everything, because we each need to learn to coexist with one another. Prayer is a mysterious and a powerful way to communicate our fears, our worries, our thoughts in situations where we feel we have no control over. However, it isn’t up to us, as human beings to answer them. This is again, up to the Higher Intervention, one of Life-Energy, and Universal Law.
Why some prayers are mysteriously and miraculously answered and others are not? This is a question that unfortunately, as human beings we will never understand. This isn’t something we won’t know and I sense this isn’t something we aren’t meant to know either. Higher Intervention or Divinity is the energy that makes those decisions and judgements.
Prayer is also about letting go and surrender. We need to learn as human beings that sometimes all we need to do, is to have faith of the highest and greatest good, and then surrender to God, to the Higher Divinity of Life, to make the judgment here. It isn’t about feeling better – rather it is about being better.
In life we all have the opportunity to be the best version of ourselves – but it will take work and effort. It is a process and a journey. Not a quick, short-term solution.
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes As an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of its furniture, still treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes, because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.

“You’re embarking upon a career that brings you the joy and abundance you desire and deserve’.
One’s career may not necessary fit in with one’s life purpose. There is a difference, yet both can be one of the same. A career can simply give you material wealth and material belongings, but is it truly your passion and desire? Does it fit in with your values and your morals? Can it simply bring you joy and happiness?
In true life’s honesty – we can’t be happy all the time nor can be live for our work! So, how can we bring a balanced medium into perspective here? Granted, everyone may not have all the answers at first, but simply asking for Divine Guidance is a very first step. If you want to change, you need to BELIEVE in this change.
Signs towards the career change that is needed will be shown to you. Don’t try and force things to happen – as there is a Divine and natural course of timing in everything.
Everyone has a LIFE PURPOSE. We are all here for a reason to better ourselves and our world. The choices that we make through the respect of free will are a reflection of us – the individual.
While life is a journey and an experience, if you feel truly called to make change, then you will be given change through Divine timing. A career may give you abundance and prosperity, but a purpose can bring you life and meaning.

“The energy of crystals supports you and helps with your present situation.”
Crystals have a unique way of healing our minds, bodies and souls. Born from Mother Earth, crystals have powerful healing vibrations already found deep within their being. With the many different colours, shapes, sizes and textures, each crystal has new life, new responsibilities and purpose for healing all on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
However, we can’t solely depend on a crystal for healing – but rather see a crystal as a tool, a partner, a supporter in our own healing and teaching process. You see, crystals offer us a pathway to seeing our own need for healing for ourselves and other people.
Crystals open up the chakras and release blockages both on our conscious and unconscious minds, they help us realise what we truly desire on many levels, and yes, help us find our true Divine connection to God, or to Source.
This card is also validating many of us to learn more about crystals and how crystals themselves have a powerful and unique life-force energy of their own.
Since coming from Earth, Crystals are some of our wisest, strongest and powerful teachers that we need for balancing the wellness of ourselves and our world.

I watch for, notice and trust the signs that Heaven continually sends.
Signs come to us both in the physical (conscious world) and non-physical (subconscious world) dimensions of our existence. Signs are Divine guidance that we all need to pay attention to, or notice as it has given to us as way to ensure that we are on the right path, our own authentic and true path.
Signs are very often repeated until we understand, or interpret the message ourselves. This is definitely why we have so many guides, Angels and Ascended Masters around us to ensure that we have learnt, what we need to learn in order to continue along our Divine path.
So what if we don’t understand the signs? Sometimes, the best person to ask that question is your HIGHER SELF. In order to do this, is to meditate and even set an intention for your own spiritual team to work with you to ask them to send you signs that you can interpret and understand! Understanding by using your own intuition is your best teacher.
If you’re still unsure about what a sign means, speak to a spiritual teacher or counsellor whom you trust and perhaps they can help interpret this for you in a psychic reading.
In conclusion, all signs are sent to help you to be the best you can be!!!

“I am open to seeing both sides of a situation”
We all can’t understand a person’s true motivations until we, ourselves have truly walked in their path, in their shoes. However, we can try to understand and show compassion and understanding by not judging a book by its cover. There is more than meets the eye.
It is very easy to judge another person purely based on their own opinions, values or judgements simply because they are different and perhaps they don’t match our own opinion, judgements or values. Why do we need to label things right or wrong? But we are missing a huge factor here and a vital factor too: this other individual’s history and personal path, and individual experiences.
WE each have our unique and Divine path. Again, just as I have previously written about, it is like our own unique fingerprints, and our DNA. Our Soul DNA is truly unique and it in turn, gives us a true path towards our Divine path.
We all have free will. This is the ability to make our own choices in our life – our own decisions. Granted, we all have a responsibility to acknowledge and accept these free will choices. We all need to remember that we all come from Universal Love and Divine Love. We all make mistakes, we all have regrets, and we all have good and bad karma. Nevertheless, all you can do, is to not judge others, but simply give love, compassion, and empathy. Because in truth, empathy is the ability to share one’s feelings with other.
Is that what life is about? To share our life’s experiences with others – the good and the bad?
Frankly, we are all judged. So in truth, we are all in the same boat. We are all in this together. No one is better than another person. We all are part of Divine Love, and of the Divine Life Energy.

“Make a decision now so you can move forward.”
When you’re given a choice, or an opportunity, do you immense yourself fully in the moment, and agree to whatever may happen to this new endeavor? Or do you shy away, or neglect from this choice at all?
By not making any decision whatsoever, you are not moving forward. You are being guided to a decision, to a pathway, that will help you learn, grow and evolve. Sometimes the road less travelled may not always be the easiest, and yes, it can be challenging, but who is to say, that it could be the most rewarding, and eye-opening experience, you could find yourself in?
Change is a good thing, it means that you are open to new ideas and a new purpose. So it is time to let go, to surrender, to no longer procrastinate. Rather it is to – seek a pathway, a decision or a choice with much curiosity, and wonder. You never know where it may lead you.
Pathways and roads may cross, but still enjoy being in the moment of pure joy.

Deer Mouse: Focusing on the details. Being pragmatic. Thinking of the future. Keeping everything “just so”. Providing constructive feedback in a kind manner.
The Deer Mouse calls you to think constructively about your plans, about your future. When he can see that you are motivated, driven and excited about what is ahead of you, consider all outcomes is vital!
This kindhearted and compassionate mouse truly wants the best outcome for you. Don’t be fooled by his small statured, for this totem animal is also extremely wise. Even the best well intended, and well thought out plans can have some chaos in them.
Consider to reflect and careful think through all your plans – both short term and long term. But don’t overanalyze. Simply focus on the SMART…..plans:
Specific – are your goals specific? Is this goal simple? You could write down your goal or have a vision board or journal. Measureable – are your goals manageable? You may need to break down your goals further to help balance your work/home/life. Does this goal help bring meaning and motivation to my life? Achievable – are your goals achievable? Can you attain this goal, are you motivated in achieving this? Realistic – are your realistic? Are they relevant to your values and your own personal and professional life journey.
Time – can you complete your goals in a suitable timeframe? This refers to time-bound goals. Some examples are: In 1 month I will…..; In 8 months, I will, In 12 months, I will….”
The Emperor Card also helps us to get organized of any tasks, projects or opportunities that we will to fulfill. The energy of this card in traditional tarot is that of an authority figure, so in many ways, it is about taking action, making sure of our deepest and strongest desires.
The Deer Mouse is always thinking ahead and collects all that he needs step-by-step especially what he needs for his future, particularly for the winter, due to hibernation.
Either long or short term goals, it is always good to stay prepared and ready. But more than this, you will always be certain to have that motivation, that aspiration and that inspiration to keep on going towards your dreams.
Never give up, you were born for this!! Success is waiting for you!!!
Pluto Retrograde – 22nd of April 2018: Being Fearless and Unleashing your inner Warrior
Pluto retrograde 2018 starts on April 22 at 21° Capricorn and ends on September 30 at 18° Capricorn. The aspects and fixed star involved in Pluto retrograde 2018 will unleash your inner warrior. This is an ideal time to take towards a more aggressive and direct to deal with your Pluto power and control issues.
What is Pluto?
Pluto is a dwarf planet. A dwarf planet travels around, or orbits, the sun just like other planets. But it is much smaller. Pluto was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh. However, there is still the ongoing debate in both astrology, astronomy and the scientific communities in general to allow Pluto to be seen as an actual planet. Pluto is only 2,300 kilometres wide. That means it is 1,400 miles wide.
Pluto Retrograde April 2018
In terms of Zodiac astrology, Pluto is the ruling planet of Scorpio. Usually when Pluto is direct in orbit and not in retrograde (meaning going backwards) the energies are about transformation, renewal, birth, and new beginnings.
However, since Pluto is in retrograde, this means that Pluto will have an impact on everyone to some degree of how we control our thoughts, our words, and our actions. In other words, we will have a difficult to let go of old habits, and even a fear of change. There is also a present fear of your personal power being taken away, or being too easily influenced.
We may all be reflecting back on our past, our past mistakes, of what we could have done, or what we have failed to do. Nevertheless, don’t allow this to dampen your spirits. Allow this time to teach you a valid lesson to know not to repeat this for your bright and happy future.
Unleashing your Inner Warrior – a time to be fearless!
While Pluto is in transit, during this phrase between now and until September 30th, 2018, this is a regular cycle of which it is in opposition to the Sun. Unlikely with all other outer planets, this little retrograde will have not as much impact or concern as other inner planet retrogrades.
This is a time of deep inner reflection, as with all retrogrades – as you review, renewal, and rejuvenate during this time. It is an excellent time to see and look at your personal power you’re your own personal control of your life. Are you valuing your own personal power? If anyone or any situation is controlling or manipulating you or your life – now is the time to let them go. Now is the time to practice your own assertiveness – not in a rude way, but to understand your own professional and personal boundaries for yourself and others.
This isn’t a time for power tripping but a time for elimination. A time to understand and realise your own habits – whether they are good or bad and take positive step to change. Think of it this way – if you want to seek change, you need to act on this change. But the most destructive behaviour or addiction, the harder it is to give it up and it won’t be easy to go cold turkey.
This is a fascinating time to seek what you are both personally and professionally passionate about. Are you driven or self-motivated to step out of your comfort zone? If you are, you can overcome any obstacle or challenge that presents itself to you over the next 5 months.
Pluto in Retrograde as well as in its transition phrase also allows you make you feel courageous, strong, and successful in both your personal and professional life. You may also feel that you are lucky in many aspects of your life. Be thankful and grateful for these wonderful experiences that will come to you.
Please remember that you don’t have to force change or have to react to unexpected change. So this is a natural development in your life associated with increased power and influence, spiritual and personal growth, wealth creation and professional advancement. Higher and Powerful forces are working behind the scenes to promote you to a higher level. A strong urge to reform something in your life will coincide with an opportunity to do just that.
Pluto will go direct (forward) on September 30th, 2018 at 18° Capricorn

We all have many relationships or friendships in our lives. We all attract those whom we want in our lives. Relationships come in many different forms: platonic, friendships, family relations, furry babies, and acquaintances.
If you are seeking that special someone – that one person whom you want to have a healthy, soulful, and kindred relationship with, you need to ask yourself, if you are truly ready to have such a person in your life. If you are seeking this person – remember that the color Rose can help you attract this person. Remember that real love and true love, takes time, effort and understanding. It takes a while, and sometimes months or years to really know a person. Unfortunately, it isn’t like the movies, or music, sadly.
True love, and real love, if you are lucky to find it – does exist. Sometimes you love this person, sometimes you don’t. But you love this person wholeheartedly – you see them at their best, and at their worst. Real love means that you find a sustainable soul that you can share your life with; your ups and downs;your joyous and happiest moments; your disappointments; and your fondest moments.
Like a Rose, while it may contain prickly thorns that could hurt you, try and see the beauty of love. There is much beauty in the eye of the beholder in a relationship in love.
Love is all around us. Be open to love.
Love will always bring two beautiful souls together.

Saturn Retrograde 17 April 2018 – A TIME OF REFLECTION
Saturn Retrograde 2018 starts on April 17 at 9° Capricorn and ends on September 6 at 2° Capricorn. The planet Saturn, is the planet of wisdom, discipline and of karma. During this time of transition, this Saturn retrograde is a time where karma is being sorted out, by time and space.
On a karmic level, things may seem blurry to you. Everything in existence – the past, presence and future is now rolled into one. Karma is seen as both good and bad, both as a way to teach as valid lessons of life, of existence, and both in this current life and from past lives. With this current Saturn in retrograde, the karma that you have gathered from all your learnt lessons, from all your lives, will related to how responsible you have been in the past.
This isn’t a test, but more a curiosity state of reflection. The lessons associated with Saturn retrograde relate to your thoughts, words and actions. It will be especially challenging for individuals who have a history of teasing or verbally abusing others. Gloomy thoughts, bad news, loneliness, could have a negative effect of your mental state of mind.
During this Retrograde phrase, it is a time to focus on a positive state of mind, however it may intensify or you could find it difficult to have negative thinking, once Saturn goes direct on September 6, you will develop an understanding of why you may have developed these depressive moods.
Try not to allow negative thinking to stop you from achieving your dreams and aspirations. While, we can’t control the words, thoughts and actions of other people, we can certainly control our own. We can also learn to communicate clearly and have patience with others as well as ourselves.
Briefly, Saturn in retrograde want to ensure that we are all making the right life choices for ourselves in terms of our professional lives, our ambitions and our long-term goals.
With all retrogrades they don’t last forever, and it just ensure a time that is need to make us all stronger, courageous and braver people.
So, have you noticed the term lightworker recently? I have used it numerous times in my blog posts. A lightworker is basically someone who is called into the healing professional of light and love. Their life purpose was already chosen from them by God, the Divine Creator before they were even born.
Doreen Virtue’s definition of a lightworker is as follows: “Lightworkers are those who volunteered, before birth, to help the planet and its population heal from the effects of fear. Each lightworker is here for a sacred purpose. Very often, however, life on earth with its material focus creates a form of amnesia in lightworkers. They then forget their divine and perfect identities, and also their abilities to miraculously help the earth and all living creatures. When lightworkers forget their true identity and purpose, they feel lost and afraid.” (Courtesy of: http://www.angeltherapy.com/blog/8-traits-lightworkers)
Lightworkers come in every single professional – it doesn’t necessarily need to be a spiritual professional in order for a lightworker to fulfill their job. Think about every single professional you come across – there is an Angel, an Archangel and a Spirit Guide supporting them along their spiritual journey. There are lawyers, counsellors, teachers, doctors, nurses, builders and many others who are lightworkers.
How do we know who is a lightworker? Here is a very brief list of how to spot a lightworker:
You feel connected to all living things including the animals and the environment
You wish to make the world a better place
You empathize and feel compassion towards other people
You see beauty in all Creation
You feel other people’s emotions
You wish to bring more peace, joy and light to the world
You want to help other people
We are all called to be lightworkers. We are ONE with the Divine as the Divine is ONE with US. So there’s nothing we can’t do.
When we embrace the light and love that God, the Divine has to offer us, we are truly taking our true course of action and our purpose.
So how can we put light into lightwork? By being true to ourselves. By loving ourselves and being kind to all people from all different walks of life. The most highest vibration anyone can have is love. Now, this doesn’t need to be romantic love, although for many unique souls – finding a soul partner is very special! But finding love in all things – in love, within our own unique being, is just as special.
Finding a soul connection to the Divine – is putting light in lightwork. It is like a telephone wire – a true lifeline to all the support you need to help yourself, to help others, to help our world, and the beloved Cosmos.
With much love to my fellow lightworkers! <3 <3 <3 <3
Daily Reflections Inspired by the Native People of the World

For April 17th: WALKING WITH THE WAKAN-TANKA
“Remember and think about the closeness of the Wakan-Tanka (The Great Spirit, or the Creator) if they believe in this wisdom, it will give them endless strength and hope. “
– Frank Fools Crow Lakota Chief and Spiritual Leader, American Indian
Frank Fools Crows was one of the clearest and most powerful people I have ever known. Never was I in the presence of anyone who was consistently walked so close to the Wakan-Tanka. His entire life was devoted to treading the spiritual path and healing those who came to him. Just being in his presence was a source of strength and healing, and he shared his knowledge and wisdom with all who came. He never discriminated.
For Fools Crow, Waken-Tanka, was not an abstraction Wakan-Tanka was a friend, an adviser, an expert, a physician, a colleague and a constant companion. Wakan-Tanka was a sponsor and a mentor,. Wakan-Tanka was a boss, always, and one only had to walk the path of the Wakan-Tanka and consult with Wakan-Tanka in all one’s affairs. And Frank Fools Crow did.
Wakan-Tanka is not an abstraction of our lives. Wakan-Tanka is our lives.
The Sanskrit word for wheel is CHAKRA. Our human bodies are made up of 7 major chakras or wheels which balance and align our bodies into balance, harmony and peace. All of which is essential to our lives.
The 7 Chakras:
Briefly, I will explain our 7 chakras that we all have and that we can all connect to.
Root or Base Chakra/Muladhara
Colour associated with Chakra:Red
Element associated with Chakra: Earth
1st Chakra in the 7 chakra system – can be found at the base of the spine
Found at the root of the spine, the corresponding locations for this chakra are the perineum, along the first three vertebrae at the pelvic plexus. This chakra is represented at the cone of energy, beginning at the base of the spine, going downwards and then slightly bent up. The root, otherwise known as the base chakra grounds us deep within the Earth, as this chakra element is Earth. grounding our being, our spirit our everything. This chakra is known as ‘Muladhara’ in Sanskrit.
The key functions or characteristics of the root chakra are:
Security and safety
Basic needs: food, shelter, sleep & sex
Supports the foundation of our lives
Helps in our choice for reproduction of offspring
Sacral Chakra / Svadhisthana

It should be noted that other noteworthy locations described in different systems expand its location to the genital and reproductive areas of both sexes, especially for level of ovaries for women; and the testicles for men. It is also associated with the lymphatic system. In Sanskrit, this chakra is called “Svadhisthana”; which means “your own place.”

The solar plexus or Manipura in Sanskrit, is a chakra of your own personal will and power, mental abilities and confidence. This chakra is located where your diaphragm rest (in your upper part of your body) is the third chakra. The main function of the solar plexus or Manipura is to empower yourself and be more confident with your own personal and professional decisions.
The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:
Your will and personal power
Taking control and responsibility for your life
The mental abilities and intellect of self
Forming your own opinions and your own belief system
Making your own decisions
Clarity of judgements
Setting the direction towards your goals & aspirations

At very high levels, the solar plexus can help one obtain wisdom.
Heart Chakra / Anahata
Colour associated with Chakra: Green Element associated with Chakra: Air 4th Chakra in the 7 chakra system – located around the center of the chest area (but not where the actual heart organ is!)
Located in the center of the chest, however it should be noted that the this energy center is not located where our actual heart organ lies, rather, the heart chakra is in the center of the chest area. Drawing from feeling and expressing love for ourselves and for others in the many different forms of love, (whether romantic, platonic or family love) the heart chakra plays a vital role in learning more about ourselves and what we value.
Air is oxygen of which we breathe, we are therefore connected to all living things, and we are connected to all life. Please note that the heart chakra connects the lower and upper chakras together. In other words, in order to create harmony within our body both on a physical, and spiritual level, the heart connects this on a very deep level to restore aspirations of our inner being.
The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:
Love for oneself and for others
Experiencing deep and meaningful relationships
To have compassion and empathy
To be open towards transformation and change
Forgiveness and acceptance
Ability to grieve and reach peace
Center of awareness,
Appreciation of beauty of all things
Transcending of personal identity and limitations of the ego
Integration of insights
Integration between earthly and spiritual aspirations
Capacity to love and be loved in return
Throat Chakra / Vishuddha

The throat chakra or Vishuddha; it is known in Sanskrit meaning “pure” or “purification”. It is located at the center of the neck at the level of the throat, it is the passage of the energy between the lower part of the human and the head. The main function this chakra is drive by the principle of expression and communication.
The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:
Expression – the ability to speak your truth & to speak out
All forms of communications such as: whether it’s verbal or non-verbal, external or internal,
Connection to the etheric realms, the more subtle forms of spirit & your own intuitive abilities
Propensity to create and even innovate, new ideas or blueprints into reality
Realizing your own vocation or life purpose
Having a good sense of timing and time management
Third Eye Chakra / Ajna
Colour associated with Chakra: Translucent purple or bluish white Element associated with Chakra: Light 6th chakra in the 7 chakra system – — forehead, just above area between the eyes
The third eye chakra also known as Ajna in Sanskrit which means “perceiving” or “command” can be found between your two physical eyes on your forehead and near the eyebrow, giving you the power to see with openness and Divine perception of your intuition. This chakra is also known as the ‘supreme element’ as it gives all of us, as we are all have the natural ability to seek our own truth, through our third eye, by using our imagination – and hence by seeing everything in its purest form. Therefore, the third eye, awakes you of your inner being, and of your Divine truth.
The key functions or characteristics of this chakra are:
Perception of subtle dimensions and movements of energy
Psychic abilities related to clairvoyance and clairaudience especially
Access to mystical states, illumination
Connection to wisdom, insight
Motivates inspiration and creativity
Briefly in Yogi metaphysics, deeply within our own unique subconscious, the third eye or Ajna chakra carries our personal duality with our own unique “I” consciousness. It carries the duality between us and the divine, since we are all connected to the Divine. Nevertheless, you can separate personally from the “I” consciousness – and therefore be about to transcend to other dimensions, without the use of time or space, using the other five elements or chakras.
In other words, it’s about reaching yet another state of consciousness or super-consciousness, that exists independently from the rest of anything else. Granted, it does take time, patience and understanding.
Crown Chakra / Sahasrara
Colour associated with Chakra: White or Violet Element associated with Chakra: Mind 7th chakra in the 7 chakra system – Crown of the head
The Crown chakra or Sahasrara in Sanskrit, can be translated to mean “A Thousand Petals”. Know as the spiritual connection between you the Cosmos, this powerful chakra can help you reach a state of wonder, enlightenment, and knowingness. Because it’s symbol looks like a lotus flower, you can see how spiritually, we are all evolving to be the best versions of ourselves for the highest and greatest good.
The Crown chakra opens the doors to the awareness of what we need to know. Again, we all have the ability to reach peaks of transcendence of our limitations whether that be personal, as there are no limitations of space, time or energy. We all have the ability to reach paradoxes and dimensions through a crown chakra which is the norm. As it is a wise and truthful teacher, it is always Universal and transcendent. It provides the most soul seeking lessons found deep in your subconscious.
There is a blessed and sacred union between you and the energy of the chakra. You will find a state of complete awe, bliss and spiritual ecstasy. It provides the essential wisdom of all that is, and all that will be. You will be given the upmost clarity and enlightened wisdom of what your soul needs to know – even if you are ready for it or not!
As we are all an extension of the Divine, therefore you can view the Crown chakra as a the messenger chakra. It connects you to the Universal consciousness that is linked to everything, the infinite life force energy, and to everything in existence.
The key functions or characteristics associated with this chakra are:
Awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom, of what is sacred
Connection with the formless, the limitless
Realization, liberation from limiting patterns
Communion with higher states of consciousness, with
This is just a very brief look at the 7 chakras. But I’d encourage you to seek out what you believe the chakras to be. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of what a chakra is, but this is just a very short introduction to what they are.

For the week commencing: April 16th, 2018 – April 22nd, 2018
Crystal Colour: Opaque to translucent greens Related Chakras: Heart
The Emerald Green Crystal is a symbol of youth, beauty, love, and is a divine connection that stirs the soul to the heart of spring, symbolizes hope, peace, prosperity, renewal, growth and hope for the future.
Emerald has been a fascinating gemstone for centuries in many different cultures around the world in ancient times. as it has been used as a breastplate for both Kings and Queens, it has been sold in the markets of Babylon as early as 4,000 B.C. It was also a stone worshipped by the Incas, believed by the Chaldeans to contain a goddess, and was very much highly regarded by all major religions for its spiritual power and beauty. Emerald was considered a symbol of eternal life in ancient Egypt, a gift from the Egyptian God Thoth – the God of wisdom.
Emerald has been consider to be a stone of wisdom, a revealer of truth and knowledge, and to open up one’s intuition. The Emerald crystal also provides opening to Universal love and compassion to yourself, to the Universe and to other people.
This beautiful translucent green crystal is a constant source of inspiration of infinite patience to yourself – to find balance, harmony and understanding with your own emotional and mental clarity. It will help you find the right decisions and answers that are right for you. Emerald also promotes bliss, understanding between friends, balance and understanding between partners – and is particularly known to provide domestic bliss, contentment, loyalty and to soothe communication.
This Emerald Crystal was dedicated in the ancient world to the Roman goddess, Venus, (or the Greek counterpart – Aphrodite; both of these goddess irrespective of their mythologies were goddesses of love.) for its ability to insure the security in love – and as we all know – the many different forms of love.
As I have previously spoken about, the essence of compassion is to “co-suffer” or “suffer with” as it is translated in Latin. While we can’t change our past towards love, (and remember there are many different forms of love – platonic, family relations, friendships, romantic relationships, etc.) We can make amends towards finding understanding within ourselves.
What I mean by this is to see ourselves through Divine love. There is no judgement, no bullying, no put downs. Just Divine love and unconditional love. Once again it isn’t about blaming others, blaming situations or issues, or more importantly blaming ourselves.
This is truly about moving forward, this is about seeking to find out what you really want and need in this point in time. The past has been a valued resource, but it doesn’t define us.
As we have just encounter a New Moon in Aries, we owe ourselves for this spiritual checkup. The Emerald Green crystal will help us all to open up to Divine love and light.
A New dawn has come. Rather than running away from it, it’s time to make important decisions towards your future. Use the Emerald Green Crystal to seek your own inner truth, as it reveal your own hidden truths within you.
Because when it all comes down to, is love. All you need is LOVE.
So in brief:
Promotes divine love and compassion
Assists in staying connected with the wisdom of the heart
Deeply connects the heart chakra and assists in creating intimacy.
Assists in letting go of old connections and superficial relationships
The New Moon on Sunday April 15, 2018 at 28° Aries aligns with the planet Uranus. With these changes, brings a more positive and exciting new directions for everyone in every Zodiac sign.
This is particularly good news for all you lovebirds out there, especially those already in relationships, finding once again that spark and connection between you and your partner. Or for those seeking love – this is an opportunity to focus on what you really want and need in a partner. Either way, the planets align in your favor!
This powerful and spiritual New Moon that brings success and hard work into your favor as well. Many of you have been working towards reaching long term as well as short term goals, without much success. With your vision and idealism still intact portends determination and results will shine through this next Moon phrase.
The April 15 New Moon at 26°02′ Aries Sign falls within Pisces Constellation (17° Pisces to 2° Taurus). Ruled by Neptune, this Constellation gives spirituality, idealism, empathy, intuition and dreaming; but also illusion, deception, weakness, confusion and vagueness. It rules mirrors, film, fog, mist, gases, anesthetics, drugs, altered states of consciousness, poison, hypnotism, socialism, welfare and communism. This astrological aspect is a like a sword, it has two sides to it, and it does require balance in order to have harmony.
On the spiritual side to this New Moon, be open to creating personal change and consider rethinking old habits, old thoughts, and behaviors. The Aries energy is one that empowers us to self-development to review what we need to know in order to move forward to our true being.
If this New Moon energy is too much for you, just take some time out for yourself. As you being a new project, a new career, or even a new relationship, it is important to reassess yourself as you are also born into a sense of newness, each and every New Moon! Indulge in some quality self-care.
Above all, see the compassion, love, empathy and understanding that you have not only for yourself, but for others. See everything from a nonjudgmental point of view, and be open-minded this New Moon.
You’ll be surprised what you may find!
Happy New Moon Blessings!!!

The Sanskrit word for wheel is CHAKRA. Our human bodies are made up of 7 major chakras or wheels which balance and align our bodies into balance, harmony and peace. All of which is essential to our lives.
The 7 Chakras:
The 7 chakras are as follows:
Root or Base Chakra/Muladhara
Sacral Chakra / Svadhisthana
Solar Plexus Chakra / Manipura
Heart Chakra / Anahata
Throat Chakra / Vishuddha
Third Eye or Brow Chakra / Ajna
Crown Chakra / Sahasrara
Our Chakras can become blocked, underactive, or overactive. It can throw an individual off balance in many ways: physically, mentally, emotionally and spirituality.
For example: have you ever experience an occasion in your past where you just felt ‘off’ for some reason. Perhaps you can’t understand why you are in an emotional ‘fog’ as emotions can have a profound impact on our chakras. Another instance could be that you have suffered a sore throat or laryngitis – and these are signs that you may have an unbalanced throat chakra.
Generally speaking, our chakras within our bodies will tell you when they’re “off”. Our bodies have an excellent way in communicating of which ones are affected. When you consider all the signs you are experiencing, if they are physical, emotional, mental or spiritual, the odds are that they are centered around the area of the affected chakra.
Why do we need to heal the chakras?
Our chakras have a profound impact on our life experiences even on a daily basis. It is these daily life experiences that are imprinted energetic patterns into and within our chakras. These deep influences impact on the work in which the chakras or wheels work in our human bodies. Negative experiences have a particularly strong impact as they often result us in us raising our defenses within ourselves, towards other people, translating all these suppression or contraction of manly negative emotions (for example: anger, bitterness, resentment) of the life force energy flow through our chakras.
This is what happens when a Energy Healer Practitioner speaks about a chakra blockage. Even though these imbalances are describes as either “closed” or “blocked” chakras. It is more accurate to use the images to diminution or increase of energy flow. When a chakra is ‘blocked”; this means that the amount and quality of energy it produces and flowing through it is highly reduced.
Chakra healing aims at supports a balanced flow of life force energy throughout the whole body or even specific parts of the body. It simple depends on which chakras need this life force energy.
Card of the Day: ARIELLE – PSYCHIC & SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES
(Courtesy of the Messages from your Angels by Doreen Virtue)
“New psychic and spiritual experiences are changing the way you view the world and yourself. Allow your spiritual gifts to open – through study, prayer and meditation.”
As we approach the New Moon in Aries on Sunday April 15 2018 (and it is also the end of the Mercury Retrograde as well) we will all arise to a new beginning both of a sense of personal empowerment and spiritual empowerment.
This is a time to acknowledge and remember that you are indeed gifted – the world needs everyone to embrace who they are truly are! We all have unique and psychic gifts – it is just a matter of remembering and unblocking these gifts.
Go, seek and find your psychic or spirituality abilities: whether it is clairvoyance, clairaudience, mediumship, tarot card reading, Astrology, Shamanism, palmistry, reflexology, life coaching, counselling or anything that makes you happy and brings you that creative drive and passion!
Take time, my angels, for you need time to believe in yourself and master what the Divine has truly given you. It is Heaven sent!

I thought to write what the writer, and artist Laura Bowen who is of Aboriginal Australian descent of what this card means to her. Her indigenous connections are to the Worimi/Birpai people of the Manning River area of New South Wales in Australia.
We will experience a New Moon in Aries on Sunday, April 15th which aligns with the planet Uranus. This is a positive change as well as the ending of the Mercury Retrograde as Mercury will then go forward! Yay!!!
Anyway, the card reading for today…..
“Although in a lot of traditional societies, the moon is associated with femininity, but I had always thought it to be male. It is because of this fact it is associated with secrets and mystery, Traditionally what we call ‘men’s business’ or ‘women’s business’ were gender-specific and not shared with the opposite gender. The Moon is very powerful. It controls the cycles of the oceans and the female womb. During the full moon, it offers periods of illumination. As it wanes down the dark moon, the earth is once again returned to darkness and questioning.
The Moon is a messenger offering the knowledge that life continually cycles – you may never have all the answers or understanding of why things happen the way they do, but you can be assured the cycles continues as the moon moves through its phrases. You have times of power and times of stumble in the darkness. There will be answers that are illuminating and moments where your emotions will feel overwhelmed by unanswerable questions.
At a time of feeling unsure, it may be wise to remember your personal power and your inner light. Take action and responsibility for the life you are living. the moon represents a time for making intentions, for seeking answers, and acknowledging your own power.”

Week Commencing on Monday April 9th, 2018
Crystal:Rose Crystal Crystal Colour: Various shades of Pink
Related Chakras: Heart
Rose Quartz is famous for is gentle nature stone of love and compassion. With it’s nurturing and healing proprieties of kindness, soft yet subtle energies – will help you open up heart to receive love, compassion, understanding and kindness towards your inner child.
We all deserve to feel safe, and secure within our being. As children we seek to find comfort, warmth, nurture, security and safety with people whom we trust – this more than likely our immediate family, our parents, our siblings, our grandparents, our friends, our teachers, – who all play a vital role in being our protectors and guardians.
However, sadly and tragically not all children are so luckily to have all these trustworthy and honorable people in their life. For children are born so innocent, angelic and perhaps naïve and are very impressionable at the very early stage of their life. Yet for many people worldwide childhood traumas have uncovered a range of issues once an individual reaches adulthood – addictions, crime, poverty, homelessness, unemployment drugs, mental illness, health issues, and unfortunately, may become part of a seemly never-ending and unbreakable cycle of trauma, loss and conflict.
Yet, there is always a choice of free will. We all have an inner child – even as an adults. We all need to understand that it’s okay to show a vulnerable side of ourselves, even to remember our own inner child. For this crystal for this week is a gentle reminder that your own inner child needs to be acknowledged. While we can’t change the wrongs of the past, we can determined the rights of the future. We can learn to begin again, to see the love, the kindness of our own hearts, through our inner child.
Now, this card does strongly speak about love, compassion, kindness and indeed forgiveness of ourselves. (and perhaps of others – however, it should be noted this is a personal decision.) We may experience old and painful wounds that do need to be released with the help of our inner child.
While still experiencing the Mercury Retrograde which ends this week, the powerful energies will still intensive as part of releasing, surrendering and letting go as this will help us all in our emotional healing.
So in brief:
Deepening self-love and acceptance
Opens your heart to accept unconditional love
Enhances compassion, gentleness, and nurturing of the soul
Brings self-fulfillment and inner peace
Supports individuals going through divorce or separation
It also should be noted that forgiveness doesn’t mean that you forgive a person or situation (this is a personal choice and it’s up to you). However, you wish to surrender this emotion to the Divine in order to move forward, and to help you heal in a healthy way. You can always speak to a qualified and professional counsellor or therapist to help you find the root cause of your emotional issues.
Remember, that we are ETERNALLY LOVED by the Divine and your Spiritual Team.
“Those who are seriously concerned with love as the only rational answer to the problem of human existence must, then, arrive at the conclusion that important and radical changes in our social structure are necessary, if love is to become a social and not a highly individualistic, marginal phenomenon.”
– Erich Fromm, American social psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, & humanistic philosopher
Native American Wisdom for this Day (April 2 2018) CHOOSING LIFE
(Courtesy from the “Native Wisdom For White Minds” Daily Reflections Inspired by the Native Peoples of the World by Anne Wilson Schaef)
“When I choose life, I choose myself. I choose Creation.”
Quote from American Indian Shawnee Elder, Barney Bush:
“I started drinking more seriously, seeking refuge, seeking death actually, from a world that was feeling more and more unnatural to me. Following a painful accident related to drinking, I finally realized that I must decide whether to follow I want to follow my grandparents or to truly take up this life. Circumstances that followed led me to choose life.”
Alcohol and drug abuse is a terrible problem for Native people throughout the world. Every colonialized nation has introduced alcohol and drugs to the Native people, which has destroyed their cultures, their families and their spirituality – their own unique and sacred connection to Mother Earth.
For many Native people and Westerners around the world, alcohol and drugs are more often a welcoming sedatives to numb the hurt and burdens that shut off the pain of living in a “unnatural” and destructive system. The issue with addiction is: “Do I want to numb myself and fit into the system?” If this isn’t a viable alternative, the issue the becomes “Do I want take up this life?”
The life that the Divine and Creator has given us may be hard for others to understand, and maybe that will be some people that will never know the hardships. But to live your truth, to choose life…..and to be one to teach others about your life experiences – is truly a humble lesson for all humanity to learn. All Native people of our beautiful world have much wisdom within their souls, within their being, and since they are so much connected with our Earth, they certainly make our finest and humblest teachers on this Earth.
For this week’s blog I have been guided to write something that is perhaps slightly unorthodox however, I feel it is of great importance. Perhaps you have been feeling a whole range of emotions, perhaps you can’t explain why one minute you’re happy and the next you’re sad, or angry, irritable or grumpy. Perhaps you are having trouble sleeping or the opposite – you are sleeping more than you are used to. During your dreams, when you are asleep, perhaps you are going to place you haven’t been there before and encountered people you haven’t met – yet you feel such a presence or occurence of deja vu.
This is the beautiful existence of the Divine Download.
What is the Divine Download?
The Divine or Spiritual Download occurs most likely around the time of the Mercury Retrograde, since the planet Mercury is the all about communication, languages, and technology. Think of a Divine Download, like you would if you were installing software into your computer, tablet or smartphone. This download is from the Divine and your spiritual team to help you with your life purpose as you have been asked to help other people, to help lift not only your personal vibration to a higher state of peace and love, but the entire world’s!
Currently this period is taking place between March 22 to April 15 2018. It is during this time of the Mercury Retrograde that is is possible that you may experience through your subconscious (as you are asleep since you are more open to these Divine experiences) through your past lives.
What is a Past LIfe?
We all have past lives. We all have shared memories and experiences that is remembered and harnessed through our soul DNA. Like our genetics and fingerprints, our soul DNA is also truly unique. There is no exact soul DNA – we each have our own spiritual and divine journey ahead of us. This is exactly the same as you would find for everyone with different fingerprints and genetics.
Our soul DNA carries with us, through our entire being of existence, all the lessons, blessings, good karma and bad karma through each past life. This in turn, helps us, as individuals, to make the free will choices we choose in each life. Our soul helps to influence the choices that we make, but we, as 3rd dimensional beings ultimately make the last call.
Soul DNA Activation
Our Soul DNA Activation begins the moment we are born as a baby. The moment of breath, we are born into existence. Our spiritual teams are assigned the moment of our birth, and they are ultimately chosen by the Creator, the Divine, or God (or however you best resonates with you). As we grow, we can take a more active approach on our free will choices. But remember, our souls, our higher selves, and our beloved spiritual teams of guides, Angels and Ascended Masters always have our best interests at heart.
