Sprouting Expansion

Winter passes (BYE!) and we are finally free from the caves of hibernation. Spring begins to fasten her buckles for something new, fresh, and revitalizing to come forward.

The Spring Equinox (for the northern hemisphere) happens this Wednesday, 3/20/29, along with a super ful moon in Libra. Whatever you have been growing for ourself in relationships or partnerships of any kind will get activated with energetic vigor. The spring equinox marks the start of the zodiac, Aries. We left Pisces, the last of the 12 zodiac signs, leaving behind emotion, internal development & deepening our understanding of ourselves- motives, desires, big dreams, inspirations- and we bring them forward into Aries-the individual, stand-out-from-the-crowd enthusiasm. Aries wants you to show who you really are and have a voice to be seen and heard. Now fits the appropriate time to produce the goals that have been in the works. If many ideas are forming now, keep tabs and notice which ones you keep revisiting. Those that stand out will land with strength and force. Can you feel the fiery energy of Aries?

Opposing us for the equinox is the Full moon in Libra, pointing us to balance and partnerships. The duality of “we” and “I” plays a strong chord within us all and asks these types of questions: What can I grow to help others? How does my work affect the whole? How can we work together? What am I doing for myself to create balance?

Libra enjoys company and partnership that harmonizes easily. Aries is counterbalanced by Libra in the most lovely way that makes us feel in proportion. Does that make sense?

Sometimes we contrive grandiose plans for ourselves without thinking things through or making sure details are managed. Libra asks us to suspend our actions and determine if our plans are prime options for ourselves and the other people in our tight circle.

This full moon map out your plans in terms of “we.” What needs to be release, allow to slide off like a snake shedding its skin. Underneath lies smoothness and glowing readiness for what awaits you.

Enjoy Spring! Xoxo

Pushing Through Resistance

Every time we decide to make a big change in our lives or start something brand new, our ego self shows us resistance in the forms of procrastination, fear of starting, making up excuses, and so on. Why does this always happen? We then have the choice to either listen to that little voice inside our heads (I know you know what I’m talking about) or saying, Nope! That voice is not real and I’m not going to listen. Not today!

Moments like these show up so frequently out of fear because realistically, we have to give up so much in order to begin a new way of being or thinking. Mentally, we must set up boundaries within ourselves and with our friends, family, and coworkers. In order to become a positive thinker, we have to give up negative thought patterns and self deprecating behaviors. It is not easy.

Big changes and even smaller changes and shifts happen because we choose them, like starting a Keto-diet, or they are out of our control, like needing to move across country for work or losing our job. Change occurs all the time and it’s so important to talk about because as we enter the Fall season, many changes take place in our lives. Kids go away to school or begin Kindergarten, the energy of life shifts from growth into harvest and storing up reserves for the winter.

We all have moments of resistance ( I think we all do) when we are unconsciously moving through life and allowing things to happen to us. But, when I am conscious about what is happening in my environment I question, why is this happening for me? I understand now that my body requires more rest than I allow. I force myself to slow down. Consciously tuning in to how your body feels is a great way of flowing with the currents of resistance instead of against those currents because this energy is important to flow in congruence. There’s valuable information in why we are blocking or creating friction instead of easing into the unsteadiness or vulnerability of our circumstances.

So for the next few months I will keep pushing and I hope you will too.

Thank you for reading and I’ll talk to you soon.

Crystal Soul Connection

Part of my morning and evening ritual involves sitting and breathing with a different crystal. I avoid using the word meditation here, even though it partially is meditation, but it’s also partially invoking the Oversoul of that particular crystal.

An Oversoul is the Being of a crystal.

Crystal soul connection is the heart connection you make with your crystal, forming a relationship or bond, and using the properties of that crystal to change your life. This is where the magic happens. Messages, images, and intuitive knowledge freely pour from these crystal beings, specimens of the Earth, to help us evolve emotionally, intuitively, and spiritually.

Each day you will receive:
1. An email with a video
2. Writing prompt to encourage you to go inward (deepest depth of your soul)
3. A guided meditation with questions to ask the crystals.

Day 1- Clear Quartz
Day 2- Amethyst
Day 3- Rose Quartz
Day 4- Online gathering to share and connect

March 22-25th- Online program (enjoy from your couch!)

Strange occurrences and unexplainable circumstances and entities continue to perch in the center of my normal. It always has from the first time I can hold on to a memory. So, why did I wait so damn long to use a pendulum and adopt it into my divination practices or self care routines? Because I never saw one used before and I did not understand the handling of this particular tool. What makes it move? Can I trust the answers given to me?

Fast forward to now where I use a pendulum every day as a practice of clearing space and unwanted energetic beings or personal energetic heaviness (psychic sludge).

Have you ever used one before? Pendulums are a divination tool used to assist someone in their personal and spiritual lives.
There are so many different types to choose from and not all pendulums will want to work with you. Picking out your own pendulum proves the most assured way to get one that resonates with your frequency.

So, if you have a pendulum sitting on your desk, in a box, or in a drawer, or in a box in a drawer, now you have permission to dust it off and join me for a 40 minute zoom class on how to use your pendulum.

We will go over:
-Practices before using the pendulum & safety (grounding & clearing)
-Creating mindful questions (ego VS. high self)
-Clearing space (books, cards, chakras, furniture, food)
-Noticing true responses and false responses
-Creating pendulum charts
-Finding lost items

After payment, a Zoom class link will be sent to you.

Thank you,

Ritual with grace

Full moon and Emeralds

The Taurus Full Moon has passed. What did you plant into the Earth for growth, nurturance, and ? Taurus gives us a slow steadiness that progress at a seemingly turtle pace. Let that not discourage, but empower us to put forth the efforts and hard work that Taureans love to give.

What do I do for a full moon?
-I pull cards
-I meditate with crystals that call upon me, eager to work.
-I create crystal grids.
-I place some crystals in the moonlight.
-I smudge myself with sage and palo santo.
-I anoint myself with oils.

The act of ceremony and calling upon the four corners, my ancestors, my guides, and angels to help guide me to my steadfast truth , creates ritual assisting me in cultivating my hearts desire. What gives me passion? What makes me shake that I want it so badly? What can I do to make my dreams a reality?

Working with Emerald holds so much space for growth into the heart center. The ancient ones call this a manifestation stone to help attract what your heart desires to you. But one must have trust within themselves. One must be honest with goals and mindset. This stone goes back to 4000 BC and was worn and adored by Cleopatra. Emerald is a seers stone and is one of the semi-precious gems (ruby, emerald, sapphire, and Diamond).

Emeralds are great for domestic bliss as well, working into the depths of the heart chakra and allowing for openness and connection with the relationships in your life. Emeralds are stones of loyalty and trust, so when working with an emerald, one must be honest with their intentions. If you’ve worked with this stone before, please give some insight and share your own experiences. I’m brand new to this stone and I’m loving it!

Thank you,


Throat Chakra Healing

I recently had surgery on my throat: a tonsillectomy. Not fun at all for an almost 40 year old with two small children, one still breast feeds, and the other who asks for me every five minutes. The recovery was brutal. Vaginal tearing after childbirth was easier. The problem was not being able to talk, but still having to talk because the kids needed me. Overall, my throat chakra is a fucking nightmare.

When did this all go to shit in the first place? I think somewhere between my teenage years and my late twenties I stopped speaking my mind. I gave into drama and extra BS that I didn’t want to do and I lost my voice. I’m still trying to find it, actually. And I’m pissed. I’m so angry that my hands shake, so irate that I have to leave the room for fear I might say or do something that I can’t take back. Indeed, my issues unfold in my inability to say what I want to say when I want to say it. Instead, I bottle that up inside myself so tightly that I explode. I can literally feel a hand or something wrapped around my neck when I’m trying so speak my mind.

All week I read the #metoo posts on FB and thought about how so many of us have been silenced or choose to stay quiet about our experiences out of pain of reliving the trauma and also because there’s a shame factor involved with our story. The silence that we enforce on ourselves remains a stagnant energetic force at the base of the throat that either creates an excessive or deficient throat chakra imbalance, or both at once.

And the discomfort of remembering makes it even more commonplace to block, ignore, or avoid.

I heard a term used for the first time while listening to a podcast. She said that many healers, emaths, and lightworkers “spiritually bypass” their negative or shadow issues because it’s so much easier to live in this world “one-ness” and that if we feel a negative emotion we can meditate it away or bathe it white light. But, the problem resurfaces during times of stress and those people lose their minds, they go CRAY CRAY because they never dealt with the root cause of the issue. Hence, why I’m writing this blog post. I sense that I’m doing that so much recently, especially since my throat surgery, and my shadow self shows itself as rage and anger.

What I thought was resolved has jumped into the forefront for me to process again. All of my inner-child issues, relationship issues, addiction and recovery, basically, every piece of my shadow has come forward for me to stare at into the eyes. There is nowhere to hide and thank God, I have nothing to hide anymore. All I need to do now is sit closely and with as much compassion and stillness I can muster for myself to complete this work so I can move on and help others and be part of the collective good.

How does one do the work? What can help?

Throat chakra crystals, like blue lace agate, blue kyanite, angelite, turquioise, aqua aura, and blue topaz are all beautiful throat healers. They gently encourage you to find your voice, to speak up and tell your truth, even if your voice, hands, and legs shake.

Sound healing transmutes and facilitates stagnant energy to shift inside the body to the outside bodies and into the ether. Listening to videos of crystal bowl healings, tibetian singing bowls, or crystal pyramids can greatly affect the energetic construction inside of your body. Going to sound healing circles is a quick way to release the psychic or energetic smog you might be holding on to. Especially for emaths or highly sensitive people.

Saying a Mantra has been historically effective at shifting energy. You are saying words that hold vibration and that shift your being into a different state of awareness. So Ham, or OM, or repeating an affirmation in your mind can do so much great work at removing old trauma.

With any of these modalities, begin by stating your intention. I usually say something similar to: I am open for my body to realign with my energetic truth. My throat chakra rebalances to the energy of the greater and highest good. I am able to trust that my voice and my words spoken are in alignment with the energy of source. My words flow freely and I am able to voice myself clearly with good intention and purpose.


Thank you,


Full Moon Ritual

Some people do dance naked, however I prefer swimming naked, especially for the Pisces full moon! In all seriousness, I like to take some time to sit and reflect or write.

What are the things that need releasing in order for you to be at your best?

How can you draw upon your creativity?

What does your intuitive mind lean toward?

A full moon is part of the cycle where your cup is completely full, so taking on a new project right now would not be ideal. Since we are talking Pisces, what emotional energy can you release? What drains you? Write it down or think about it and release it in your minds eye. If you have the ability to burn the paper safely, do so at your discretion.

Crystal grids are great energetic enhancers! Working with sacred geometry magnifies the effect of the crystals and your purpose/intention for your grid. I use crystals that would be good for the qualities of the sign that the moon is under, in this case, Pisces. The grid shown incorporates objects found from the ocean, the home of Pisces. These objects represent items that have been worn, but showcase elegance and beauty. Pisces energy shows emotion and strength, love and beauty, mystical wisdom and intuitive intelligence. The energy can also be incredibly dreamy and romantic. These qualities are important to each of us on our journey to find what is real and true in our life purpose. Dive into your subconscious to uncover your own truth and see what treasures lay buried in the sand and await your full attention.

The full moon energy last around 3-4 days so if you can’t do a ritual on the night of the full moon you can do one the day before or the day after.

Elevating your psychic mind

I recently came back from a trip to the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Stunning, breathtaking views of the mountains gave me a sense of elation, which is the exact opposite from what I was expecting to feel. I imagined that the mountains give me a connected sensation to the earth since they are these gigantic structures emerging from the ground. Wrong! We took some amazing hikes and I just wanted to live in the clouds and float forever, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I got back home and faced my task of grounding my energy, which took 7 days, on top of worrying about my family and friends down in Houston being pounded by rain from Hurricane Harvey. My heart breaks for Houston. Everyone is safe, thank God!

While I was there I realized not everyone grounds the same way. File that under DUH! I crave ocean water and will dive in regardless of the frigid temperature. Other people feel most connected going for long hikes in the woods. Maybe the mountains ground you, but not for me.

Why is grounding the most important skill for an empath or psychic intuitive?

In order to reach our higher consciousness, we must root down first. Think of it like this: If we want to jump up onto a bench we must first bend deeply in the knees and boost ourselves upwards. That bending low is the grounding action that’s required to jump. Psychically, we need to energetically root ourselves so that our minds eye can open and access the information from the higher realms and frequencies.
Moving your body is the most effective way, but so is mindfully channeling your energy downward.

With the full moon tomorrow, 9/6/17 in Pisces, the mystical dreamer, grounding ourselves will allow to process the energy surrounding the moon. This moon draws us deep into our subconscious and if we can allow that to happen, removing our ego selves, we can begin to hear the messages coming from beyond. Spirit guides, angels, inner wisdom and our ancestors always have great things to say if we can be still enough to listen. Retrieving that information is easier if we are grounded. Interpreting that information is easier when grounded. Discerning what we receive with full awareness, we can begin to apply it in our lives with integrity and love.

So if you want to improve your intuition, enhance your gifts, or simply meditate with the consciousness of the full moon in Pisces, simply carve out some time tomorrow night and begin to sit still. Ground your energy to a chair or the floor by pressing your pelvis into that surface. In your minds eye, see your energy flowing into the earth and growing roots surrounding you and your home or property.
To ground, use crystals like garnet, copper, or hematite. Then let the crown of your head lift up even taller and call upon your “team” (angels, etc) to guide you and tell you what you need to know today.

You can use crystals like fluorite, labradorite, and amethyst to help raise your vibration and create a safe space for accessing your psychic mind.

Most importantly, have fun!


Leo New Moon Total Solar Eclipse

Are you curious what to do with the New Moon Leo Solar Eclipse in Leo energy right now? Maybe you’re already on top of things or maybe you’re trying to figure it all out. Here’s my perspective and insight on how to use this energy for your benefit and to help you leverage your personal development, new projects, or upcoming goals and creations that you want to attract in your life.

The Leo personality is one of excitement, fun, passion, joyful, child-like wonder, brave, leader and loyal. Sun rules Leo, which also represents the areas in your life that you need to let shine. The time to hide and reflect is over and now comes the moment that you come out of your shell and really show the world who you are as a person and to take confidence and pride of who you are and what makes you stand out from the masses. Leo is your power and purpose to live/lead your life from what’s important to your heart and soul.

The new moon is the ideal time to reset new intentions and manifest or attract what you want to create in your life. The clearer you can become with these intentions, the more likely to see the payback of this new moon solar eclipse energy. New moons are a time of fresh starts. These new goals you set for yourself now will greatly influence your next 6 months and you will see the transformation of your goals within the next 2 years because of the energy of the solar eclipse.

The Solar eclipse energy is so interesting to me to be working with right now because we are also in a Mercury retrograde (going internal and slowing down, thinking about how we perceive and receive information and how we express ourselves and our awareness). Solar eclipses blot out the sun, leaving us in shadow. So, whatever we have hiding in shadow will likely surface at this time. Not every person is going to feel this intensely as the next. It really depends on what is going on in your birth chart and where Leo is located on your birth chart. So, whatever thoughts, emotion, or feelings that you have been avoiding, hiding from, distracting yourself with will come up at this time. We all have shadow sides (things we hide, even from ourselves) that we might or might not know about. That’s ok too. We all work with our shadow self when we are ready. As we go through our journey of life the shadow will creep in and we have a choice to deal with it in a healthy way so that we can progress as healthy individuals. If we choose to ignore those shadow aspects they typically come back to resurface as negative emotions that aren’t that pleasant to deal with. I mean, that’s why we avoid them in the first place.
So, use kindness and compassion for yourself when handling the tough stuff. Solar eclipse energy brings about a massive shift because we become deeply self-aware and there is an enormous amount of power when we look at aspects that aren’t working in our lives and discover ways to transform our personalities. Huge shifts will happen.

Some exercises to do for setting intentions to leverage your personal goals include:
-writing down on paper what you want to attract in your life no matter how crazy big or small they are. Write everything down.
-image yourself already having what you have. This is a form of visualization that can be helpful in receiving messages in how to attain what you want.
-In your mind’s eye (3rd eye) call upon your future self and as them for guidance.
-create affirmations to counter balance the shadow side negative talk that might surface.
-think about how you want to feel when you have this goal and work on aligning yourself from feeling, rather than thinking.
-spread joy, kindness, and gratitude wherever you go to raise your vibration and act from your greatest good.

I really hope this helps you get in connection with the solar eclipse Leo energy coming up this August 21, 2017. Happy New Moon!

The Modern Empath

What exactly does the term “empath” mean? You may be hearing it a lot lately as people get in touch with their Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine sides. Intuitive types use this term often to help describe someone who gets overwhelmed with their emotion or who is highly sensitive. Taken from Dictionary.com, an Empath, from the root Empathic or Empathy, is the psychological identification with the feelings, thoughts, or attitudes of others. Yep, being an empath involves more than simply feeling empathic towards someone. Think of it as more of an absorption of emotion, positive or negative.

Here’s how you can identify with being an empath:

-senses the energy of a person or a crowd
-has trouble being in highly crowded places
-deeply impacted by violence in movies, TV shows, or the News.
-can feel what someone feels without the other person saying.
-does not like drama
-strangers talk to them like a best friend would.
-feels drained, even with ample sleep
-needs solitude and alone time

There are various types of empaths, just as there are many different intuitives. Here are a few:

-feeling others emotions-individuals, groups, or collective nation
-feeling others physical ailments, like back pain, arthritis, muscle soreness, headaches, congestion, heaviness around the heart, gut issues, tight neck or shoulders, foot pain.
-feeling the energy of plants “horticultural empath” who can sense the needs of plants.
-feeling the energy of animals
-sensing energy of food-if someone made something from love or anger, the energetic vitality of the quality of food: organic vs. conventional or quick food.

Empathic people can easily get overwhelmed, and I’m sure you can see why. If you are a sponge and all these energies are coming toward you, the amount of energetic smog that you need to sift through and release can get incredibly tiresome.

Empowering yourself to handle anything that comes into your field serves as the greatest defense against the energy vampires or other things that may come your way. You must have the tools to ground, release, and recharge your batteries.

Empaths tend to drain themselves easily. They are great listeners and so everyone, including strangers, loves talking to them, telling them their life story or dumping crisis after crisis. Setting boundaries becomes fundamental as you explore your way through the energies coming at you. Differentiating between your feelings and the feelings of someone else can also get problematic if there lacks a strong system for standing up for what you need. Grounding and recharging becomes critical. Then, managing what comes into your space-TV, music, news, friends, etc becomes just as important. You can control what comes in, at least most of the time.

Grounding activities include hiking, walking, dancing, yoga, Tai Chi, Capoera, Karate, pranayama, acupuncture and deep tissue massage. Basically, anything to get the energy flowing with your feet touching a surface constitutes a grounding activity. When you ground your energy you have the foundation for your light to surround you and firmly hold that auric space. Instead of holding space or others you now have the power to hold your own space. That can change everything!
I often use a grounding visual meditation that I call “Charged to the Earth’s Matrix.” Start seated or standing with your feet completely planted to the ground. Barefoot is preferred, but not required. Feel your sit bones connected to the chair if you are seated. Sit or stand up very tall, feeling the crown of your head pulling upward to the heavens as your feet press firmly into the Earth. Start to pull white light down from the cosmos through the crown of your head, through each chakra points, forehead, throat, heart, belly, lower belly, base of pelvis, feet and down into the core of the Earth. Keep breathing deeply while at the same time drawing the light through each point and into the center of the earth. It might take some time to get through each body part and into the Earths’ core, but just breathe with it. Once you hit the center you will know. Then, take the Earths’ light and bring it back up pulling up around your body like a tubular curtain, all the way up to the cosmos, once it hits the toppest point, bring the light back down and allow it to travel down your body once more to the center of the Earth. Repeat 2 more times for a total of 3-5 times. This exercise is intensly powerful and effective for grounding and shielding at the same time.

Once you are grounded you can start to amplify your own energetic source. One useful way to use light as a form of protection involves the bubble of light. Imagine your white light coming from the back of your belly and bringing itself forward out of your body and enveloping your entire form. You have the power to expand that light outward when you see fit. You can also envision your body or even someone else’s body, wrapped in white cotton balls or pink cotton candy.

Your team, comprised of ancestors, archangels, guardian angels, spirit guides, spirit animals, gods or goddesses, Divine source, and your higher power are there whenever you need them. How do you call upon your team? Ask them to help you guard and to help you release.

My number one method for releasing emotional blocks or someone else’s stuff that I don’t want to hold onto anymore is always soaking in salt. I do this at least once a week. If it works for athletes’ sore muscles, I’m sure it helps with pulling out energies that are in my auric field.

Sage is another tool you can use on a daily basis or if you’re feeling drained and need to clear away some heaviness. Light a small piece and wave it around your body, hands, and feet.

Using essential oils is also useful, in particular, Rosemary, Sandlewood, Cedarwood, PaloSanto, and Patchouli.

Crystals that are great for protection include Black Tourmaline, Obsidian, Jet, Hematite, and Tigers Eye.

Stones that are critical for releasing include selentite and kyanite.

Remember, empaths need solitude and alone time to recharge. Remove yourself from a situation if you gut is telling you to get out. No explanation is necessary.

As you release energy set a clear affirmation: I release all energies that don’t belong to me, making space for light and love. I am strong in my foundation and only allow for what’s good and best for myself and the collective whole.

Lastly, as you release the energy that you are not wanting, like anger or jealousy, make sure that as you let that energy go it’s also being transmutted and transformed into positive light. You can use your minds eye to imagine the energy dissipate into purple healing light to travel back to Mother Earth or back to the Cosmic Council.

You have the ability to empower yourself with anything that gets thrown your way. Empaths will always pick up energy from others and we have the capability and intuitive adaptability to ground ourselves, move that energy through us, and then fully release and clear our spaces to start anew. The potential rests within each of us.

With love,
