Full Moon Dreams

I love how the Universe, Spirit and the Angels work! Today, I had no idea at all the topic I was even going to speak about. I hit record on my phone and let Spirit guide me even more than usual…. and when I clicked stop…. the video for today ended at 4:44. Have a listen for yourself to see if the Angels and Spirit have a message for you!

Spirit Message – Dreams

Spirit talks to us today about our dreams. We have the power within us to make them come true. There is much work to be done. Spirit asks us, how important is that dream?  Life tests us to see how much it’s really worth and how much are we willing to do to get there. Some things, people, habits, beliefs and behaviors we are going to have to let go of. Spirit tells us that if we truly want it, it is ours to have!

Many Blessings,

The Dance

native loversA midnight waltz among the stars, where he reaches out to take hold my hand and it feels as though we have become one. With nothing more than a single touch, his spirit and mine join together and we dance. In perfect unison, each step followed by another so effortlessly. Gliding along through space and time with an ease that settles deep within my soul. Hand in hand, our fingers laced together so perfectly that one would not know who’s fingers belonged to who. It may seem silly, this dance, to others… but it is a connection that can never be broken. It’s a nightly ritual of two souls who long to be together in physical form, but distance keeps them apart. For now.

When night fills the sky and it is time to close their eyes, the two lovers meet in a sacred place that only they know. Off in a distant field of their minds, stands a tree. A most sacred tree that becomes their shelter, their home, their place of dreaming, where love is more than just a dream or a possibility, love is their only reality. They know that there will always be a tomorrow and they will meet at the tree once again, but the time in between seems like an eternity. Tormented by the distance that keeps them apart. The time they have each night beneath their tree, is all that they can think about throughout the day. Time slowly tics by and the longing inside them grows. As the sun fades away and is replaced by the moon, they eagerly close their eyes and make their way to the tree.

From the mists they appear side by side, reaching out to each other, they touch and the dream becomes real. She feels him as he pulls her close, his hands reaching around her back, pulling her into his embrace. Her lips touch his with a kiss so sweet and meaningful. Intoxicated by each other, breathing in each other’s essence, melting into one another. Their movements so fluid, that someone peeping into their dream might not realize that there are two souls. Beneath that tree, they spend the entire night wrapped around each other’s mind, body and soul. Looking into each other’s eyes as though it were the first and last time. Holding on so tightly to one another as if they know their time is limited. It doesn’t matter how long they have in this sacred place of dreaming … all that matters is that they are there for the moment and they shall not waste a single second of it.

To be continued…. 

Many Blessings,

Manifesting the Dream

Searching for a blog topic today… I looked back at things I have written in the past. I quickly realized.. I don’t live there anymore, why am I even looking there? So, I spoke about what is in my heart right now and what I plan to do about it. Enjoy!

Ceremonial Vision

angel wingsLast night just as I lay down in the bed a ceremonial vision began to take place. I was surrounded by several ladies, I was confused as I have never encountered beings like these before. They seemed like a mix between angels and fairies. They were tall, dressed in light flowing dresses and large light colored wings … but the healing they did or magic seemed more like fairy magic.

They took a bundled child form from inside me. They danced with it and sang to it and cradled it and laughed and played with it. As they were passing it around with one another they were taking turns waving their hands over my body doing some sort of healing, protection or magic. They made sure to apply extra attention to my feet, head and chest. They did this for quite a while and when they were done they placed the bundle back inside me for it to continue it’s incubation period.

I was then given the information that what they had done would come into knowing after the 3rd of my next moon cycles.

So now… I wait!

I welcome anyone who would like to give any insight about this vision.

Many Blessings,

The Wolf Spirit

wolf and raven paintingI had a wolf pup visit me last night in dream state. A new guardian for me. I have had wolf guides for a very long time now. This visitor was a new one … he was a mix of black and white in color with blue eyes.. very sweet and protective. In dream state I was a mostly white wolf and was told that the coloring in this case had to do with progression as the wolf spirit. A full white wolf was a 100% progression as the wolf spirit. I wasn’t all white, I still had some other colors in my coat but getting there 🙂 .. the new pup was mostly black but with some parts very white … it was a nice, comforting visit in my sleep.

So in honor of the wolf who showed up in my dreams last night … here’s some info on the wolf totem: (info below from birdclan.org)

Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge, and they live by carefully defined rules and rituals. They are friendly, social, and highly intelligent.

Wolves are the epitome of the wild spirit.

The senses of Wolf are very keen, and the moon is its power ally. The moon is the symbol for psychic energy, or the unconscious that holds the secrets of knowledge and wisdom. Baying at the moon may be an indication of Wolf’s desire to connect with new ideas which are just below the surface of consciousness.

Wolf would not come to you unless you requested the appearance of the tribe’s greatest teacher. The wolf teaches you to know who you are and to develop strength, confidence and surety in that so that you do not have to demonstrate and prove yourself at all.

Wolves have a complex communication system – using body language. Usually those with wolf totems are very expressive with hands, posture, face or in some other manner. If you have difficulty conveying your moods and ideas to others, meditate and study the wolf. It will teach you how to empower your verbal communications with appropriate body language.

Wolf medicine empowers the teacher within us all to come forth and aid the children of Earth in understanding the Great Mystery and life. As you feel Wolf coming alive within you, you may wish to share your knowledge by writing or lecturing on information that will help others better understand their uniqueness or path in life. It is in the sharing of great truths that the consciousness of humanity will attain new heights.

Traditionally, someone with Wolf Medicine has a strong sense of self, and communicates well through subtle changes in voice inflection and body movements. They often find new solutions to problems while providing stability and support that one normally associates with a family structure.

All About Dreaming

IMG_5261The most important thing to understand about dream interpretation is your own feelings about what is going on in your dream.

Others may open your mind to new possibilities but at the end of the day it only matters how you feel about your particular dream. If it feels right and rings true to your heart then that is the correct answer and interpretation for you.

January: Wolf Moon

The Wolf Moon, also known as the Cold, Snow, or Winter Moon, is a time of protection and strength. While it is the first full Moon of the calendar year, in terms of nature it occurs in the middle of the cold winter season, a season of death and desolation. In these respects, the Wolf Moon can be seen as a time of both beginnings and endings. This is the time to start to consider what you want to plant and plan for the spring. You can do magick so that as the spring approaches your magickal goal will grow close and closer to fruition.

February: Storm Moon

The Storm Moon, also known as the Death or Quickening Moon, is a time to do magick for fertility and strength. For most people in the Northern Hemisphere, February is a time of storms and bleak, short days. In the olden days, it was a time of true hardship.This is a good time to do magick to help you face life’s challenges. You could do a spell to help you with a particularly challenging project at work. Your spell could focus on helping you to accept the challenge, perservere, and make it through. You could concentrate on the idea of weathering the storm and giving yourself the extra stamina to succeed. This is also a time of cleansing both internally and externally. As such, it’s a great time to get rid of physical things you don’t need and any mental or emotional baggage you might be hauling around with you, too.

March: Chaste Moon

Also known as the Seed or Worm Moon, the Chaste Moon is a time to plant mental seeds – thoughts of success and hope. This is also a time of purity and newness. It’s the time to bless the magickal herbs and plants in your garden and to start preparing the soil for the seeds that you will plant. It’s also the time to mentally prepare yourself for new experieces, a new job, pregnancy, taking a trip, or bringing a new animal into your home.

April: Seed Moon

The Seed Moon signals a time of fertility, growth, and wisdom. This Moon is also known as the Egg, Grass, or Wind Moon. This is the time to sow the seeds of Magick. If you are planting a magickal garden, you want to get out there now and put things into the Earth. This is the time to move from the planning phase into action. If you want to get pregnant, this is a great time to go for it. Fertility is in the air. This is also the time to bring that new puppy home, it that is what you have been planning. It’s also a great time to empower some seeds to both help them grow and to do Earth magick.

May: Hare Moon

The Hare Moon, also known as the Flower or Planting Moon, is a time of health, love, romance, and wisdom. This is a great time to plant the seeds that you have empowered. As the seeds begin to grow, the energy you have filled them with will start to manifest in your life. It’s also a great time to rekindle the romantic spark and passion in a relationship. If you’ve been working magick to help your career, now will probably be the time to decide which of your job offers to accept. And you might want to do some divination magick to help you make that decision.

June: Lover’s Moon

Also known as the Strawberry or Rose Moon, the Lover’s Moon brings with it energy for love, marriage, and success. Is it any wonder that in some traditions this Moon is called the Honey Moon? This is a time to nurture your garden and marvel at its beauty and abundance. If you have taken that new job, now is the time to make sure you have everything running smoothly. And you might want to keep your eyes open to see how you can move into a more desirable position.

July: Mead Moon

The Mead Moon, also known as the Blessings, Lightning, or Thunder Moon, is a time of enchantment, health, rebirth, success, and strength. This is the time of the first harvests, when you begin to enjoy the fruits of your labors. This is also a time of celebration and magick. Remember that mead is the nectar of the Gods. Now is the time to gather your magickal herbs and do some prosperity magick so you get that raise you’ve worked so hard for.

August: Wyrt Moon

The Wyrt Moon, also known as the Wort, Barley, Corn, or Red Moon, is a time of abundance, agriculture, and marriage. This is the time to collect your magickal herbs and store them for the winter or share them with others. Remember to give an offering back to the Goddess for her generosity. At this time of the year, you might want to do magick to help someone else reap the benefits of the Earth’s abundance. (With that person’s permission, of course!) This is also a good time to make a move at work for that higher level position. If you have become pregnant, this is the time to concentrate your energies on having a healthy pregnancy.

September: Harvest Moon

Also known as the Barley or Hunter’s Moon, the Harvest Moon is a time of protection, prosperity, and abundance. This is the time of year when the grains are being harvested, and it is a good time for magick involving your prosperity, abundance, and the nurturing of others. If you have had a long illness, this is the time to finally come back to full health again. This is also the time to obtain that higher paying position at work. The energy of the Harvest Moon will help along any magick that is geared to bring you or someone else abundance.

October: Blood Moon

The Blood Moon is sometimes called the Falling Leaf or Hunter’s Moon. It is a Moon of new goals, potection, resolution, and spirituality. The night of the Blood Moon is a great time for divination of any kind. At this time of the year, all of nature is making ready for the winter. Animals that hibernate are gathering the last scraps of food. Birds are heading south. In human societies, this used to be the time when we turned from agriculture to the hunt as our means of sustenance. This is the time to refect on what you did during the year and to evaluate your accomplishments.You also want to check to see how you will survive the coming months. Make sure that you have enough money in the bank. If your work is seasonal, you might want to do some magick to find other ways to support yourself. If you work outdoors, do magick to help you survive the cold months ahead. You also want to check on things that are important to your safety and survival. How are the tires on your car? And what about that smoke alarm in the kitchen? Because the holidays are fast approaching, you also might want to do some work to remove stress and negative energy from your surroundings.

Novemeber: Snow Moon

The Snow Moon is also known as the Beaver, Mourning, or Tree Moon. This is a good time to work with abundance, properity, and the bonds of family and friendship. This is also an excellent time to use divination to get an idea of what is up ahead. Remind yourself that although winter is coming, it will not last forever. Do what you can to reduce your stress and to strengthen your bonds with family and friends. Back before the advent of grocery stores and central heating, people really counted on those bonds, which could be the difference between making it through the winter or perishing. So, know who is really there for you, and count your blessings.

December: Oak Moon

Also known as the Cold or Long Night Moon, the Oak Moon is a time for hope and healing. This time of year the Moon has reign over the Earth, because there are more hours of night than day. Our thoughts turn to the rebirth of the light and the longer days that are promised after the winter solstice. Women who have become pregnant in the spring are about to give birth and will probably want to focus their energies on delivering a healthy baby. This is the time of year to complete something you have worked hard on and to make sure that the task is truly completed, all the details dealt with. It’s also a great time to let go of old patterns or problems and start anew. If something has been eating at you for a long time, work to give it up at this time. Let go of the negative and let the light of longer days shine inside you. Working with children in a nurturing way can be very rewarding and healing.

Working With Dreams

Working with your dreams can be very beneficial and may help you work through the things that most effect you in your life.

There are many different kinds of dreaming.. some say they don’t dream at all, but they do. We all dream! There are different levels on consciousness while sleeping and depending on what level you are at when the dreaming begins or even what level you go to after the dream, plays a big part in remembering your dreams.

To help you remember your dreams:

As you lay down at night tell yourself over and over again that you intend on remembering. Practice makes perfect. You can’t do this just once and expect to remember. this is something you’ll need to do until you have finally started remembering those dreams.

There are also many different stones that are helpful when wanting to dream more, have more vivid dreams or simply remember your dreams. Amethyst, moonstone and quartz are just a few that come to mind first. Find the stone that calls to you. ANY stone call do the trick.. if it calls to you.

Meditation is also a very helpful tool. Again, find a meditation that suits you. There are tons of meditation techniques out there. Do some Googling and try many different forms of meditation until you find the one that fits you best. Meditation is a training of the mind and the more you do it … the better you get. As with all things it takes time, patience and lots of practice.

Dream catchers are another tool used for dream work. They are best used by hanging over your bed or somewhere in the bedroom where the morning sunlight will reach it every day. The morning sun cleanses the dream catcher of all the bad or negative dreams and thoughts.

Journals – dream journals are ever so helpful. Hard to make yourself remember to do at first but as always practice.. practice. Write down your dreams before your feet hit the floor. Once you are out of bed, auto mode kicks in and you begin your tasks at hand for the day and the journal remains empty.

Essential oils…. oh one of my favorites! I love essential oils and there are many out there designed to help you with sleep and dream work.

Whatever tool you use.. practice, practice, practice. Find what calls to you and what feels right. You can use one of the tools above or a combinations of several or all of them .. or even find something different that works for you. Good luck and sweet dreams!

Many Blessings,

Snake Dreams and Snake Meanings

I had a night filled with crazy dreams.. mostly involving lots of snakes…. shudder…. creepy crawly snakes everywhere … I just had to keep reminding myself.. snake represents transformation and healing … shudder shudder … transformation and healing!

Here’s some info on the snake from linsdomain.com

This a powerful totem — it is the symbol of transformation and healing.
The Snake is wisdom expressed through healing.

It is a protector and guardian totem, along with its sister totems, the Dragon and the Serpent.

If a snake totem has come into your life, your creative forces are awakening.
Your intuition will sharpen and be more accurate.

Snake energy is the energy of wholeness, cosmic consciousness, and
the ability to experience anything willingly and without resistance.
It is the knowledge that all things are equal in creation.

It also signals a transition in your life. New opportunities and/or changes.

Snake is fire medicine, the medicine of transmutation.
On a material level, it is vitality; on an emotional level, it is ambition and dreams;
on a mental level, it is intellect and power; on a spiritual level (the highest level),
it is wisdom, understanding and wholeness.

Snake magic is heavy magic.
Become the Magician and transmute the energy and accept the power of the fire.

Many Blessings,

Dream of Birthing

WOW! Last night/early this morning I had a very long, intense and detailed dream. I’ll try and give you as much detail as I can remember.

I was pregnant and about ready to give birth… first of all I didn’t know I was even pregnant and something came to light (other than my growing stomach..lol) that caused me to realize what was really going on.. yeah preggo!

The dream was so detailed, down to the moment I went into labor to going to the hospital.. being rolled down the hallways on the bed…. to being in the labor room. Every push was felt, all my senses were vivid and it was a very very real experience. Not only did I have 1 child but I had two.. yes twins again.. in real life my first two children are twins … as well in this dream state. These twins were huge.. 8 1/2 pounds each! Everyone was amazed at how big they were for twins and talking about how crazy this whole thing was. There were moments of comparing them to other babies that were just born and the size of them and also moments talking about what to dress them in.

Suddenly my dream turns to having them home and the daily chore of taking care of them. Breast feeding vs formula … I did both because there wasn’t quite enough of my own to go around for them. There were glimpses of me trying to carry them both around at the same time and then one of the babies spoke. yeah and then started walking .. two days old and walking and talking! I was freaking out asking my husband to look at this and how insane it was that this child was only 2 days old and doing these things… unheard of! It seemed as though they both had grown even more over night … the one was walking and talking but the other wasn’t .. it’s behavior was more like a newborn. I spoke about the child being a prodigy and before our eyes she was doing more and more amazing things. She would speak in full sentences .. not just say random words and she walked as though she was born walking.. well ok at 2 days old.. I guess you could say she was born that way…lol.  The rest of the dream I took care of the other twin while we just sat in amazement watching the other one do her thing. It was an odd but joyful and crazy at the same time .. kind of experience.

It is said that to dream of giving birth is a symbol of new ideas, new aspects of yourself, new projects, new beginnings… and to dream of child that walks and talks is the symbol of the birth of the divine inside us.

That being said… along with the feelings and visions I have had lately… it looks like something new is definitely on it’s way.             🙂

Many Blessings,

Dream Analysis

I had a really odd dream the other night and thought I would share along with my analogy at the end.

The dream:
A man shot me many times over and over again. There were a bunch of me’s.  This man came up to me in a drive way … shot me at extremely close range  (like so close he was nearly touching me) several times and on parts of my body that I wouldn’t die right away… and it wouldn’t be messy..  he shot me in a way that I would slowly bleed out… instead of dying instantly. I bled and I died… then it was like ground hog day and there I was again and he repeated… every time shooting me in the same way  up close but in different places on my body…

As he was planning his shots he would look up at me as if he was wondering if this spot or that would finally do the job.  It was like the different me’s were different parts of me or different aspects of me… like I was split in to a certain amount of layers. I did not count how many times this happened but it felt like at least half a dozen times.

One the last round I just laid there and he walked away. When he was gone I raised up and thought to myself  “good you are finally done now”. I was still there and still living. He had tried so many times and yet I kept coming back to life and living again and again. No words were even said… there was no interaction between us. Only me looking at him and watching him shoot me and him looking up at me into my eyes and wondering to himself if this round would be the last round. I could tell he was trying to work out in his own mind which were the best spots to shoot me that would actually make me dead without instantly killing me.

I could feel the cold, hard concrete beneath me and I could feel the blood leaving my body and draining down the pavement. I felt nothing toward this man, no emotion .. no feelings at all.. no love nor hate.. just nothing .. he was just there trying to kill me and no matter how many times he tried… I went down but always came back.

My analogy:
Do what you will to me but you’re not the one who will end me.. this is not how I will end. I continue to live… no matter what you do.. where you hit me or how many time you come back to do it again.  I will survive this! I choose to live!

Much more can be analyzed here but the this is the overall meaning for me. With all dreams there are intricate details that can be analyzed more specifically… but remember it is YOUR dream and it matters most how YOU felt about the dream. Many people will give different thoughts of interpretation based upon how they feel about the events you had. Getting an opinion of others can be helpful and maybe light a window of thought that you didn’t realize was there but still it is most important how YOU felt. How others analyze your dream is just opinion based on their own experiences. Trust your own feelings when it comes to your dreams.


and so it begins…………….

Tonight we say our goodbyes to 2011 and we welcome in a new year… a new year of possibilities…  a new year of second, third, fourth, etc chances… a new year of becoming your own personal best… a new year to set your own records… a new year to hope … a new year to love… a new year to dream… and a new year to make those dreams a reality.

I keep hearing this commercial on television and radio about this speaker who encourages our young to go after their dreams the quote the commercial ends with is ” If you do nothing to make your dreams happen… your dream dies with you”.  If you take a moment to think about that statement… you can imagine how sad that must be. I also think about all the dreams in this world that were never realized and that must have died within the dreamer. The question of the day is: Will you be one of those dreamers who’s ideas and dreams die when you do or will you be one of those dreamers who goes after your dreams to make them happen.

If you have passion about something, why not at least try your best to make it happen. If it happens or not, at least you tried and maybe someone around you caught that same passion and maybe .. just maybe they will carry on with your vision after you are gone. You never know unless you go after it.

Tonight here are a few things you may want to try:

~ Light a green candle with the intent of creating your future in a positive and productive way.. imagine your dreams coming true and your reality just as you dreamed it to be. Allow this candle to fully burn out. Light it before the end of this year and let it burn over into the new one. (Green can be substituted with any  color if you don’t have a green one handy. Green is the color of health, wealth, success and prosperity)

~ Do something productive to help manifest your dreams. (even if it’s simply writing down your vision)

~ Create a vision board of things you want to make happen this year and keep it visible so that you can be reminded daily of your dreams and of what you wish to manifest in the year to come.

~ Think postive thoughts…. sounds simple … but as you go through your day pay attention to your thoughts and when a negative thought pops into your head … push it away. Negative thoughts damper our productivity and progress and are useless to us or anyone else.

Be sure and do at least 1 thing each day to help manifest your dreams.. even if it’s something as simple as meditating on that dream, recognizing that dream, reminding yourself of the tasks you need to do to make that dream a reality. Every day doesn’t have to be filled with huge tasks… but every day does need to be filled with a type of energy that someday will help you realize your dreams.

Many Blessings for a great year ahead!

Dream – Working with the Masters

I was having a pretty wild dream this morning… I was in this place on a mountain that was like a monastery where one might go to be trained by the masters. My husband was there as well. We were both in the physical course together.. we were being taught something like Tai Chi but it was called To Tai Chi or something like that … something only the masters knew. Suddenly one of the masters recognized me and called out my name and said.. Holly, what on Earth are you doing in this class … you should be in the class for the creatives. I said to her, because I want to do it all. Everyone in the class laughed, even the masters… the master was like… but no one can do it all and no one needs to do it all .. and I said but I want to learn it all and at least give everything a try. I want to see for myself how much I can do….. I want to explore all the abilities inside me.

The master and the other students then began to tell about how the classes for the creatives were very hard. Telling about some of their own experiences from the classes. They started going on about how the master would describe things for you to draw and you would have to draw from your own mind ….. you would not be given an image in the physical to draw from.  I was then shown images of their results and the master spoke about how  different everyone’s perspectives were and how beautiful each drawing turned out. I understood this and appreciated the process and that this would be something that would just make me better at what I already do… but it did not change the fact that I wanted to try the harder things… things that I had never tried before to see what other abilities were inside me.

The Master appreciated my wanting to learn and so allowed me to do so.

I was then given this task that was extremely odd in my mind. I had to open up this fruit/plant looking thing that had something in its center .. it was round and had thousands of hair like moving parts.. very compact and the size of a silver dollar. I had to be very careful taking it out … placing it in the palm of my hand and moving it to this big cushion type thing that wasn’t really a cushion.. I’m not sure what it was. The master had told me what it was but that bit I forgot. When I placed this thing on the cushion looking thing it began moving from inside its center – outward. the cushion looking thing it sat on then began to grow. The master said to me that whatever it is placed on.. grows. It has the ability to turn even the smallest stone into a mountain.

The next scene in this dream was as if that master and I were floating overhead while this thing I took from the plant was creating a mountain… as the rock it was on grew it would move to another section of the rock and the rock would continue to grow and grow until it was indeed a very large mountain.

Suddenly my dream leads to an end where even in the dream it felt also as though I had skipped past many things to get to this part of the dream. I was in some sort of group discussion about death and I spoke up to say… but I already know where I go, I have seen it. Everyone paused… the master looked at me quizzically and asked me to  tell them what it was I saw.

I spoke of a large stone mountain that was dome shaped surrounded by pine trees. The Master then said I know exactly where that it…. let me show you and she then took me to that place … we went there and we were floating above it and I looked at her and said something like, see..  I told you I had seen it ( this was a place only the masters knew of .. I was told… she again looked at me quizzically) and that’s where I woke from the dream.

Note: there were lots of details that I had also seen in this dream that I haven’t described here such as the vibrant colors of the drawings the students had done.. the landscape of the mountain the monastery was on… some of the tasks the students were taking part in.. etc.

 To often that we push ourselves into doing or acting in a way that is not good for us. Somewhere down the line we will find ourselves saying .. “I should have” “I could have” “Why didn’t I”.

 We will hold on to the things that need to fall away from our lives, hoping to keep whatever “normal” we think we should have in tact. We’ll hold onto relationships (friends, family  and lovers) longer than we should for fear of hurting someone else’s feelings. We’ll hold onto bad habits for fear of change.
We stop nature from taking its course so often that we damage not only our own lives but all those involved and then we sit and ask that every so popular
question.. “Why?”.

 Well because we did it to ourselves. We held on when everything inside of us said “LET GO!”. We need not worry about what we have already done and focus more on this moment forward. The past is done, there is no changing it. However, we are able to shape the future.

 We need to learn how to listen to our inner knowing, pay  attention to our surroundings and when the universe sends us a gigantic sign to
say STOP..RUN..GO THE OTHER WAY!! then we should listen and do that very thing!

 Don’t be afraid of what you can become.

 All of our lives we have heard others says things like: “If I was younger..” “If I knew then what I know now…” “The youth holds the world in their

 We hold our own world in our hands. WE have unlimited possibilities. It is not wasted on the young, it is wasted on those who do not believe in

 It’s time we are start believing!

It’s all about who you know….

“It’s all about who you know….” How many times have you heard that phrase?

Well, it’s true!

In so many instances it really is about who you know…. some of the best breaks, opportunities, deals.. etc.. come from people you know or are connected to in some way.

This year I won 1st place for Best Visual Artist and Best Blog because of who I know… yep .. that’s right .. because of who I know!

But, it’s not exactly what you think…. Let me explain.

The people I know come from all walks of life.. most everyday folks just like me. All of us doing our best to make our way in this world.

They may or may not be the most politically influential, they may or may not be the highest in command at what they do, they may or may not be the wealthiest  (as far as monetary value goes), they may or may not have much power in this world … but they are by far the most caring, dedicated, hard working, dependable, friendliest and kind hearted people that I know!

It is because of these people, standing by me throughout the voting process that I was able to win 1st place.

The thing is …. the award and acknowledgement is great .. but what’s even greater is that I have enough of these people on my side… who cared enough about me to cast their votes daily for an entire month..  who despite my constant and annoying voting reminders .. still stood by me and together we ruled the Toast of Music City 2011!!

It is indeed  “who you know”  and in this case I am proud and honored to know so many wonderful, caring folks!

Who you know doesn’t always mean you have to know the wealthiest, most powerful people…  you just have to know the ones who truly care about others.

Thank you to everyone who voted for me this year… and most of all thank you all for your friendship, support and for being who you are!

I’m so glad I know the best of the best! The Cream of the Crop! Love You All!

Meditation Tips

Meditation is a great tool … There are many forms of meditation and many reasons why one might meditate.

It helps to relax, reduce stress, helps with anger, sleep, focus and can also help remember past events or even past lives. These are just a few of the things that you can do with meditation.

It’s best to try many types of meditation until you find the one that is right for you.

When just beginning to meditate it can help by listening to tranquil music and then even more so if you use headphones. The headphones will help drown out any outside noises while you learn your meditation.

The more you do the better you become. It can sometimes be hard to focus and stop the mind from wandering in the beginning. Practice makes perfect.. the more you meditate the better you become at it and soon you’ll be able to meditate with little or no trouble at all.

There are many techniques online… I suggest you google meditation techniques and try out as many as you like. You will find that some are easier for you than others. Everyone is different and so what works for one may not work for another.

Practice visualizing ordinary, everyday things.

Part of meditation is the ability to visualize… start out with closing your eyes and visualizing ordinary, everyday objects, when you master one object… move on to another .. soon you will be able to do this with ease.

Guided meditation vs self guided meditation…

Guided meditation is where someone else is talking you through a meditation technique and self guided is where you memorize steps to a meditation and do it by memory alone.

Guided meditation can sometimes work better simply because you are focused on the words someone else is saying and you are able to completely let go and ease into the picture that they paint for you with their wording.

When you memorize a meditation and do a self guided meditation.. you have to try and let yourself go to the place you are seeking along with continuing to guide yourself down that path.. so you can see how that maybe like trying to live in two worlds at one time.

Try both … one may suit you better than another and then again sometimes you will find certain types of meditation are best self guided and others work better guided by someone else… like past life regression.

When trying to remember a past life .. it is easier to participate in a guided meditation .. that way someone else guides you down that path while you are able to completely let go and travel that road without the task of keeping yourself on track… it is the responsibility of the other person to do that and you can have the freedom to roam about that life fully. Also it’s good to have someone else with you as you explore past lives or even past events in your current life so that if you go too deeply or experience great tragedy .. they can see you struggling and bring you back up if needed.

Comfort – You must be in a comfortable place when meditating .. you can’t be too hot or too cold or uncomfortable in general…. it breaks your concentration and disrupts the process.

I hope these tips have helped.

All it Takes is Remembering

IMG_8987Today I want to take you back … back in time to the days when you felt you had the world in your hands and you just knew that someday all your dreams would come true.

You may have been 5 and just starting school.. ready to learn all that you could.

You may have been 9, in that in between age of being a kid and being a teenager.

You may have been 13 and just starting Junior High…  or you may have been 16 with a license to go wild … .your freedom in the form of a little plastic card with your picture on it.

You may have been 18, graduating high school  ready to leave home and branch out on your own.

You may have been 21 and now the world truly was in your hands … no rules holding you back!

You may have been 35 and finally coming into your knowing…

You may have been in your 40’s and well … the little things no longer mattered.

No matter what the age was when you felt like the world was yours … when you had high hopes, dreams and long-standing goals… go back now to that time… even if it was just for a moment … go back

Remember what that felt like…

Remember how mountains were merely anthills and rivers were never too wide.

Now remember those hopes and dreams… remember the goals you once had…

Remember your ambition and your readiness to take on whatever lies before you.


Explore those thoughts today is all I ask…..

Many Blessings,

Animal Visions

This morning in that space between sleep and waking I had a very vivid vision …. I’d like to share that vision with you now.

There were 2 small birds over on a nearby roof top and I couldn’t tell what they were… so I placed a couple pieces of meat on the deck railing to see if they would come get it and sure enough they moved closer … one of them was very daring and didn’t mind me being there at all and came right up to me … it was a baby bald eagle!! I took the meat and it took it right from my hand and snuggled up against me … it was so adorable. I looked right into the eyes of that baby bald eagle and I could see the fierceness and strength in it even at such a young age. The other bird stayed at a distance … I couldn’t really make out what it was, I think it was some sort of crane like bird but it too was still very young. It watched us but kept it’s distance. It seemed shy. Just found it .. it was a baby heron.

As I am playing with the baby bald eagle, a hawk flew in and landed on me! hahahahah someone had put a sweater on it and I could see it was annoyed by the sweater so I took it off and it too stayed there with me just hanging out. This was a full grown hawk not a baby one like the bald eagle.

Next a big very black raven flys in and lands on top of me and I said to the raven, “excuse me, do you mind not sitting on top of me!” lol So it moves and just hangs out with the rest of us…

Then a baby armadillo comes up to me… oh so cute! So I pick it up and it just wants to cuddle up …. every time I put it down it would come running back up to me for me to pick it back up.

Then there was a talking turtle that showed up in the vision .. I can’t remember what it said to me but it was crazy. I know it said something about love but can’t remember the exact words. I think it was something like “Remember I love you” or something along those lines. When it spoke everyone looked at me like  “what the heck” … I said yeah I know it’s weird right.. but I have heard the turtles talk before, I told them .. and at that time I had  a flash back of being at some pond  where there were lots of older turtles and they were all talking.

I was a very endearing vision… all the animals coming up to me as they did.. I’ll post their totem properties in a moment at the end of this blog for you all.

The connections I had with these animals is what stood out in my mind… how they looked at me  as if they knew me and trusted me … it was an awesome feeling. There was a bond there that I can’t really describe in words. I’ll not forget this vision and the gift that was given by it.

Here are the characteristics for each totem:

Bald Eagle –

The eagle is symbol of the zenith.  A great reminder of your own ability to soar to great heights. Eagles are messengers from heaven and are the embodiment of the spirit of the sun. Those with an Eagle totem need to have an involvement with creation; a willingness to experience extremes; a willingness to use your ability even if it means getting “scorched” a little as you fly high; a willingness to seek out your true emotions.

A demanding totem, but one that offers so much reward at the end of the journey.

Its four-toed feet remind you to stay grounded even went soaring high; Its talons remind you to grasp the things of the earth; Its sharp beak shows you when to speak, how much, and how strongly.

This totem will show you opportunities and how to ride the winds to your benefit.
Eagle people can live in the realm of the spirit yet still remain connected and balanced within the realm of the Earth.

You must become much more than you ever dreamed possible.


If a raven totem has come into our life, magic is at play.
Raven activates the energy of magic and links it to our will and intention.

With this totem, we can make great changes in our life; the ability to  take the unformed thought  and make it reality

The raven shows us how to go into the dark of our inner self and bring out the light of our true self; resolving inner conflicts which have long been buried. This is the deepest power of healing we can possess


Hawk is the messenger, the protector and the visionaries of the Air. It holds the key to higher levels of consciousness. This totem awakens vision and inspires a creative life purpose.

A Hawk totem is filled with responsibility because Hawk people seek the overall view.
They are aware of omens and spirit messages.

A Red-Tailed Hawk Totem is special. It has direct ties to the Kundalini, the seat of primal life force. It is associated with the base chakra . If you have this Totem, you will be aware of and work towards fulfilling your soul’s purpose. It reflects a greater intensity of energy within your life:  physical, emotional, mental and spiritual forces will all be strong within you. The Red-Tail Hawk is a permanent totem — it will always be with you.


Armadillo wears its armor on its back, its medicine is part of its body. Its boundaries of safety are a part of its total being. Adjust your rhythms and senses and you will know what is safe and what is not.


Armadillo teaches you how to protect yourself and when to let your defenses down.


Make yourself a energy body shield using Armadillo medicine. Make a circle on a piece of paper and see it as a medicine shield. Write in the circle all the things that you want to have, experience, and give you joy. This shield will reflect what you are and what you will on an unconscious level.


When you receive an Armadillo totem, it is time to define your space. You may have trouble saying “no” and are being taken for granted. Learn to guard your personal space and allow entry only when you want to.




Turtle is the oldest symbol for the Earth. It is the personification of goddess energy and the eternal Earth itself.

If you have a Turtle totem, you must be mindful of returning to the Earth what she has given you. Honor the creative source within you. Use water and earth energies to create a harmonious flow in your life. Ask the Earth for assistance and her riches will pour forth.

If a Turtle totem shows up in your life, slow down the pace of your life. Bigger, stronger, faster are not always the best ways to reach your goals.

Turtle is fine teacher of the art of grounding. When you learn to ground yourself to Earth’s power and strength, you place focus on your thoughts and actions and use the Earth’s limitless energies rather than your own to accomplish your will.

Turtle is the keeper of doors and one of the ways into the Faerie Realm.

Oh dear!!!! hahahahaha


A Heron and Egret totem teaches balance; the ability to progress and evolve — to walk into deeper waters without fear.

It is important for someone with a Heron and Egret totem to learn to stand on their own two feet, to become independent and self-reliant.

Heron and Egret has a strong connection to the element of Earth  and you must also be aware and cultivate this connection.   The Mother Earth is a source of strength and will help you stand strong and firm.


Heron medicine allows you to perform many tasks at the same time, keeping all in balance.
If one way doesn’t work, then another way will. Heron and Egret people seem to instinctively know this.


Heron people do not need a lot of people in their life  and they are often follow non-traditional roles. They feel no need to “keep up with the Jones.”  They stand out in their uniqueness and know how to take advantage of things and events that most people wouldn’t bother with.


You know what is best for you and you should follow that path. Be aggressive when opportunities present themselves — don’t let them get away from you.


Meditation on color will provide insight to Heron and Egret people.


Many Blessings,

Journey to the Summit

A vision I had one afternoon on my way home from work …  

Today the Grandmothers came for a visit …

Straight away one of them came over and grabbed me by the ear and said “come on, we must go”.

“Go where?”, I asked … “nevermind that, just come on”.

They said we had to get to the top of that mountain … as one of the grandmothers  pointed to this remote, very steep mountain top that looked to be somewhere in Asia.

IMG_8184The mountain was a very tall, thin, pointy looking mountain.  I thought to myself … OH DEAR! How on earth am I getting up there?

I started grabbing a few things as they pulled me to the base of the mountain. Things I thought I might need to help me along the way.

Off we went up the mountain. The sun beating down on my back felt like a brick house pushing me down. The grandmothers seem to have no trouble at all climbing this mountain. How could I be out-done by a couple of old ladies?!

I kept climbing …

As I climbed I began letting loose of some of those things I thought I needed. I had to shed some weight to make it to the top of this darned mountain. I had to lighten the load!

I’m not sure how long it took. It seemed like a long time … but it was still daylight when we reached the top.

I reached the top and there was a bench just overlooking the edge. I made my way over to the bench and sat down.

Exhausted, I sat there for a while trying to catch my breath and gather my senses.

The grandmothers behind me say, “What do you see? What do you feel? what do you hear? and what do you know?”

“I know I’m beat!”, I thought to myself… 

I sat there for a few moments looking out over the amazing view … wondering to myself… “ok what is it they WANT me to see, hear, feel, and know?” hmmmmmmmmmm

“Forget about us for a moment and just speak your mind”, they said.

I took in a deep breath and closed my eyes. I could smell the flowers. Each scent individual and then a lingering of how they mingled together. I felt the cool breeze as it washed over my face and brushed through my hair. I felt the once hot sun, now warming me as it dried my dripping wet clothes and it felt like a golden hug from heaven. I could hear the wind as it blew through each blade of grass and how it seemed to whisp around the whole mountain, encircling us all. I opened my eyes and I could see clear across the valley below without my glasses on. The colors on the leaves as the sun played among the branches of every tree were so vivid. 

“Now, what do you know?” they asked.

I know that somehow I feel lighter … even though I am in body the same as when I started up the mountain …. and beside the fact of my material load being gone, I feel lighter inside myself.  I don’t quite understand how, but I feel so light that it is as if I could glide down this mountain like a leaf in the wind.

I feel weightless… inside and out.

“Think about this for a while”, they said … “stay here and allow your mind to become crystal clear”.

Suddenly I replayed the memory of myself climbing this mountain and I watched as I started to lighten my load. Each time I let go of something it became something else… like thoughts or behaviors. My concentration was solely on getting up this mountain and all those things I thought I needed weren’t helping at all. Without thinking about it I began to let these things go as I made my way upward.  Then suddenly there I was… at the top.

I smirked .. smart old women ….

We need nothing but what is inside us to make it to where we want to go.. with a strong will and a bit of direction, we will get there as long as we don’t give up and keep our eyes forward.

Thank you Grandmothers for this journey …  there are always lessons to be learned.

Many Blessings,

The Angels

For the past couple of weeks some of you will know my stories about reoccurring numbers in triplicate form …. Just about every single day for the past 2 weeks I will suddenly look up to see a set of numbers like 444, 333, 222, 111, 555 , etc.

It has been a constant thing and quickly I understood that there was a message there for me. But what?

Many said I should write about it .. so here we go.

After the first few days of seeing these sets of numbers, I started to do a bit of research on their meaning.

As you can imagine .. sites all over the web differ.. some state similar meanings and some completely different than another… so who to believe?

The first thing that hit me was how some of the meanings felt very true to me.. without knowing a definite answer … they still “felt” true to ME. Then some of the meanings “felt” very wrong.

Sometimes this conflict happened all on one one site .. it wasn’t like I agreed totally with one site and not with another .. there was conflict inside me with meanings on most of the sites if not all of them.

So again, who and what to believe?

So, I did what one would think was the natural most obvious thing to do… I asked the angels themselves. You see all the sites were in agreement with one thing and that one thing was that the numbers in triple form were indeed signs or messages from the angels.

I asked the question... What do all these numbers mean? What is the message you are trying to get across to me?

The answer… The numbers are indeed a sign or message from your angels .. and to each person specific numbers have personal meaning … and so depending on the person the message is for,  the message is different.. specific to the relationship of that person to and that number being shown to them.

I know .. NOT a direct answer .. but then again it is!

We each can probably say we have a favorite number …  and we can each probably say certain numbers have specific significance in our lives.

All in all the numbers in triple form are to get our attention .. the angels letting us know that they are with us .. sometimes it is just to comfort us .. sometimes it is to let us know that our actions or thoughts are on the right path .. and sometimes it is a warning .. and then again sometimes it is a sure sign to keep moving forward.

For each person it is something completely and totally different .. depending on where we are on our path… what we are going through and what is ahead of us.

So my message from the angels today .. don’t worry so much about what others say … instead look to yourself and make up your own mind about what lies before you. TRUST in YOU.

Many Blessings,

When the Moon Turned Red

Last night I had this outstanding vision… I’ve had a bit of time to reflect on it and would like to share …

I was standing outside looking up at the night sky and there was this spectacular event going on… many people stopped to take notice

There was the moon and around the moon were several smaller moons circling around it … just outside the ring of smaller moons where some sort of space crafts … 4 of them had come to watch the event about to take place.

the moon suddenly turned a bright red … and moments later the moon went black and left the space before us … it drifted away to the right and was gone …

Another moon took its place… it wasn’t the normal moon…. it was another red moon that took its place and just as the red moon before it .. it suddenly faded to black and left the space … again drifting off to the right until it could no longer be seen…

Looking back at the space where the moon once was .. another red moon appeared…

I looked around and the world was a mess… chaotic .. the weather was harsh and yet the people around me acted oblivious to what was going on.

They were dealing with the chaos and weather and yet not understanding what was really going on…

In this vision I was very pregnant and frantic about trying to get everyone to understand what was going on … what was REALLY going on … I was trying to make them “SEE”. But it was as if no one understood… and they really didn’t care… sure they cared about what was happening to themselves but not about what was happening to the world.

Our whole world was in jeapordy …. not just their own little worlds… but the entire planet.


The creator can give us the most amazing, dramatic signs … he can place them right there in front of us… just above our heads and until we open our eyes to truly see whats going on … it will be noticed but UNSEEN

You know… you need to care about more than just your own private space…

What exactly are you leaving behind for your children, your grandchildren, your great grandchildren…. Have you made your world a better place?

Placing a larger house on it doesn’t necessarily make it better … a new place to shop doesn’t make it better, more roads doesn’t make it better

How about clean air, fresh water? Just to name a couple of things… very important things….

Many Blessings,
