Week 2 of Astounding August is far better than week 1! There will be some sparkle added to your week. Something that brightens your life, your day or maybe even just a moment… but sparkle is sparkle… appreciate all the moments life brings. We will be given puzzle pieces all week. Positive energy flows and you feel a lot better about the path ahead.
It is a NEW Month beginning with a NEW MOON!!! Astounding August!!!! Great things in store for us this month!! The results of this month will be life changing… placing us clearly in a whole new direction. New energy all over the place and this week will be all about clearing away any old energy so that the new energy can come in to help us create that new life!
So often our own personal misery comes from what we continue to allow in our lives. It is only when we decide to love ourselves enough to bring end to whatever it is that is bringing that misery… we begin to find inner peace, balance and love.
A 20 year old vision begins to come true but you’ll have to wait to find out what it is! I speak a bit about what’s been going on with the masses and all the chaos in the world and again review the two sides of the path. The week ahead is busy with deadlines, rewards and recognition come in for staying on task and then something mysterious and magical comes in mid week!
Our final week of Juicy June! Not only is this a time when your story is changing but it’s also becoming. It’s becoming that life that brought you here to begin with. This is a week filled with magic and opportunities but you have to be active in playing the part of LIVING! Let’s make this last week of Juicy June the juiciest week ever!
No time to play around… with every brick we are building the dream. There is much work to be done to make the dream come true. We are moving full speed ahead to make it happen!!! With new found energy, things are getting done and life feels supercharged!!
Hiccups and speed bumps…. we fall down, we make mistakes, we fail and we lose direction.. but we must soldier on. Our biggest battles are done but life will continually bring us more lessons and battles. When you plan falls through, make a new one! Your angels are guiding and protecting you. Keep moving forward!
The door of opportunity has been unlocked and swung wide open!!! Goosebumps all over!!! We have been waiting for this and working toward this for a long time and now that time is HERE!! All of our manifesting and hard work… is about to pay off! Our lives start truly changing right here and now. Today is truly our new beginning… where all we have been working toward begins to really manifest!
Grab a Broom and lets start cleaning! Today is about cleansing inside and out. Let go of and get rid of those things that no longer serve you and those negative things that keep us from moving forward.
New Moon this week with an eclipse!! Energy Through The ROOF!! New beginnings, new adventures, new ways of seeing, believing and doing… with added sun energy to add even more energy to it all! Be aware that everyone is on an emotional seesaw right now and be patient with them and be patient with yourself at this time. Right now things are falling away from us that are no longer serving our highest good so that we can rebuild in a much stronger, balanced way to help us reach our soul purpose.
Today I talk about what holds us back, what has us chained down and releasing those things that bind us and keep us from moving forward on our path. I talk about this SHIFT that we are all experiencing and what to expect. What it’s all about and how to make it through.

If we continue telling ourselves that we can’t and we don’t know how, we hold ourselves back and we never realize our dreams and ambitions. We have to believe we can, believe we can do it and believe we can figure it out and walk in the direction of learning, understanding and accomplishing instead of the direction of giving ourselves permission to fail.

Today’s message from Spirit: Don’t force it, it you are having to force something at this moment, STOP. That is clearly not the piece of the puzzle you should be working on at this moment. Put it to the side and look at your plan of action, find something else to work on that feels much better for now. You’ll get back to that other piece when the time is right. Also Spirit urges you to take care of yourself, take a time out as needed to stay healthy for the fabulous road ahead!
It’s time to stop looking over that plan of yours.. time to stop letting excuses, worries and fear get in your way and it’s time to get up and put action behind those plans. It’s time to create the next phase of your life. The planets are lined up in favor of you accomplishing your dreams. YOU have to get up and start moving in the direction of those dreams. YOU have to start making the needed changes to make them happen. Ready… Set.. GO!
You know that moment when you want to write something deep and profound that will move others… to relay how you feel inside and there are just so many words that come to you that you can’t seem to get them in the right order???
I am having one of those moments….
I sit here taking a look back into my memory banks and browse upon all the most memorable moments of my life. I see all the good times and all the bad. I look over them carefully and pause for reflection. I search through my feelings about these moments and I realize quickly that the MOST important moments were the ones filled with love. All of the bad moments, important as well but for different reasons. The bad moments in life were times of growth and lessons to be learned. Those moments showed me the strength inside, they showed me how I have abilities greater than I thought possible. I am grateful for those moments but the moments that fill me with light are the moments that were made with love.
The moments in life where love is present are indeed for me the MOST important. The moments I want to reflect on most. Those are the moments when our spirit soar with the greatest power. When love is in our hearts, we become unstoppable, there are no mountains too tall to climb, no rivers too rapid to cross, no oceans to vast to overcome and no obstacle that is too difficult to stand in our way. When you meet someone who is filled with love you can’t help but feel it, absorb some of it yourself and then pass it on to others. Love is truly limitless. It fuels the light within us to levels unimaginable but definitely attainable. The more you are filled with love the more you feel capable of doing and becoming. The light within grows brighter and brighter with every moment that you are filled with love.
Think about the moments in your life that are the most memorable. You will find the bad days and the strength that they unveiled and you will see the growth that those days created. You will then move on to the good days and how much love was felt on those days. You will see that those were days where moments were laced together with true love. Those were the days where your smile was the brightest, your heart filled to the brim and nothing could possibly get in your way of experiencing what we all wish to attain… HAPPINESS in it’s purest form. LOVE.
You are now entering a new phase of your life. This phase can be emotional, spiritual or physical. The old painlessly falls away, making room for new. Allow your intuition to guide you. Sense your guides as they lead you down your path and onto this next leg of your journey. Our deepest knowing needs no words, it is simply understood within. You know what to do… keep moving forward.
XX – Spirit Guide – Awakening
The mystery is always in us and all around us, yet most choose to ignore it. So many sleep right through their lives and wonder where their unhappiness comes from. Like fish in the sea asking for water…. we “think” we are lost but are where we need to be. Everything we need, we already have within us. We ask for guidance but forget to listen! You want to be a part of something more? You ALREADY ARE!
Does it seem like nothing works, nothing is going as planned or hoped? Do you feel stuck with no idea how to get moving again?
Your energy may be blocked by tension… You have to let go of old burdensome ideas and behaviors and allow your energy to flow freely through you. These old ideas and behaviors are keeping you from much needed growth and disable you from moving forward.
Find something to help you release the tension in your life. For each it will be something unique to you that may help. A walk in nature, some time away, a fun vacation, a hobby, a good book, etc. Whatever it may be.. find it and do it.. you will feel yourself lightening up and your energy will soon become restored.
Often, when the word “CHANGE” is mentioned, people tend to think more of the larger, life altering changes, but there are small changes taking place in everyone… every single day.
Changes in our perception, our habits, our way of being, seeing, thinking, etc.
Over time these small changes add up to a whole new us. We can look back and sometimes barely recognize who we once were. Sometimes I look back and shake my head at how I once was and at other times I laugh at myself and think … wow… was that really me?
Allow change to take place naturally and it becomes less of a struggle. Don’t dismiss the small changes in your life because one day they will add up to something great!
Son of Earth – It’s ok to be proud of yourself for your accomplishments … the size of the endeavor doesn’t matter. It’s time to appreciate yourself and the work you have done, the miles you have walked, the storms you have weathered, the harvests that you have gathered, and the seeds that you have planted and tended.
Six of Air – Clarity – The more you understand and know yourself … the clearer your insights. Get to know your own inner truths. When the battle inside you stops, harmony and wisdom prevail. Knowing yourself gives you inner peace, security and trust.
Five of Earth – Insecurity – Stop abusing yourself! Look at yourself with love and understanding… there is no need to be so harsh with yourself. Where does this negative thinking come from? It’s not needed in your life. Thinking poorly of yourself slows your growth and holds you in a miserable loop of negativity. Stop it! Your are worth love and kindness. Treat yourself how you treat others. Stop beating yourself up. Inject positive thinking into yourself and allow yourself some happiness…. some love and kindness. YOU ARE WORTH IT!
So often we find ourselves holding back our emotions. We keep locked inside ourselves, our truest feelings… leaving them unsaid. We must find a way to let go of the fear of what others will say, how they will react or what they will think and let our true selves be known.
It does us no good to hold all of that inside. Find a way and let it go.
Not an easy task and something I’m sure we will have to remind ourselves to do every day .. but in the end I feel that everyone will be much happier.
Something important is reaching it’s final point. Accept that everything in life has a beginning, middle and end. Welcome the fact that every process, every situation contains its own dissolution. We can’t start a process and be done with it if we have not allowed ourselves to go all the way through it. Don’t be afraid of the ending. Endings are needed for new beginnings.
10 of Fire – Oppression
Are you sitting on your energy? Holding on to it too tight? If you hold on too tightly .. your energy cannot flow. Let go of what inner stresses may be holding you back. Begin meditations to help release this tension. You cannot move forward by holding back your energy. Let go. Allow it to flow.
Mother of Air – Self-Awareness
Let go of those ideas of who you think you should be, who others think you should be and allow yourself to be YOU. Own who you are and let all other masks fall away. Trust in who you are and the gifts that dwell inside you. Your development will move forward more quickly by letting go of all preconceived notions of those expectations we put on ourselves and those that others may project onto us as well. Don’t be afraid to be yourself and don’t fear letting others see the true you.
Ace of Air – Inspiration – Insight – Mental Clarity
The answers are clear….. follow that hunch – that inner knowing. You know what to do so why question what you already know and feel? An inner balance will help you find the trust that is needed. Practice meditations and begin following your hunches… the more you follow the more you will begin trusting yourself fully.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Nine of Fire – Inner Strength – Break Through – Growth – Courage – Resolve
You know the gifts and the strengths that exist inside you… and you must begin now to trust that they will sprout fourth when the time is right. This does not mean that your actions stop.. it means you continue your work to progress but have patience in yourself and allow the gifts to fully develop in their own time. It is hard to see our own growth.. but take a journey back and look at where you were 10 years ago, 5 years ago, 3 years ago and even just 1 year ago.. you are growing .. and you must truth that you will continue this path of growth.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Balance – Looking Within – Change – Transformation
It is easy to become overwhelmed in today’s life .. take some time to step back and reflect within. Sometimes we must withdraw to regroup and gain our balance. Let go of “doing” and just let go for a while. Listen to your inner knowing and when the time is right to begin “doing” again.. you’ll know.
Letting go is the key to wisdom… clarity is revealed when one lets go. Easier said then done… I know.. but practice makes perfect .. so pend some time teaching yourself the act of letting go.. even if for small moments at a time. You will benefit greatly from this practice, and the more you do it the more you benefit.
As I shuffle my Vision Quest deck this morning and ask what the day has in store for us .. I lay down 3 cards … and then another… and another and one more.. so now I have six cards laid out across my desk. I scan across the cards looking for the insight that I am to share with you today and I hear a voice softly whisper … “It’s not in the cards, you seek is already with you.. it is implanted in your knowing already… you just have to trust what you already, instinctively know”
So there you have it … today’s insight.
It is one of the hardest things to do.. trusting yourself.. your abilities and the knowledge you instinctively carry inside yourself.
We always want to question that gut feeling and ask .. what if I’m wrong.
Today’s message is … TRUST
We want this sign to say 2012!

Son of Earth: Enjoy the fruits of your labor, give yourself a good pat on the back for a job well done. Be proud of your accomplishments.. large and small… physical and spiritual.
Fear: First off be aware that you are NOT your fear. We all carry fear around with us in one form or another. We must take a look at the larger picture of our fears and put them in their place. See through your fears completely and they dissolve on their own.
Insight: With inner balance you can now act decisively. Confidently make decisions on thoughts you have had for a long time. Clarity enables you to throw away the bad and useless and make good of the useful and needed things in your life.
The star reminds us of our own gifts, whatever they may be. Whether is its a specific artistic skill or something like the skill of listening or giving care to others .. share your talents without holding back and without expectations or without strings attached and the life force of energy will flow freely from you and be returned equally. The more you share .. the more is returned.
You have specific gifts for a reason .. and that reason is to share it with others.
There is no gift or talent too small.. none more valuable than the other.
Be careful not to cling to any emotion… allow yourself to experience emotion without fear of that emotion and without clinging to that emotion.
For instance: When one is happy, you want to hold on to that feeling for as long as you can. You push that moment into being and in doing so you also create a fear of loss with that emotion. This blocks energy from flowing freely through you and all times we need that energy flowing.
Allow happy moments to come and go at their own natural pace. The same is said for all other emotions. When you allow fear to take over you allow road blocks in your own life-spring of energy.
It is hard to let go of that control. We want so badly to keep happiness in our lives, but think about this for a moment. If you are clinging to one particular happy moment … you are blocking other emotions from flowing through you. The same again is said for other emotions…. Anger, hatred, sadness, etc. Live in this moment .. right here .. right now.
What is done is done.. holding on to past emotions is pointless and helps no one.
New Beginning – Listen to your inner being and trust your intuition … old things will fall away painlessly as you start something new. This may be a new way of thinking, a new way of doing things or even new projects and or work.
Change – Change strengthens us… to more we allow it the stronger we become. I know it may sound strange but think about the changes you have gone through so far and take a look at where you are now. Have you not grown from your experiences? Have you not become stronger? Now you see. Don’t fight change… it’s going to happen sooner or later .. why drag out the process and make things far more complicated than they need to be.
Life is all about changes and how we adapt to those changes.
The thing you must realize is that you have a choice about how you handle the change that comes your way. You can cling to that part of your life that’s changing and try to force it into not changing (which is inevitable.. it will change anyway) or you can let go of that part of your life and allow it to change in a natural manner.
Think about it this way.. what you lose now during this time of change.. has never truly belonged to you anyhow. Knowing this can give you a new kind of stability and rational thinking with much greater clarity about your life and your feelings.
Change can be hard to deal with… clinging to things in your life and fighting against the changes that are coming only prolongs pain and torment for yourself and others that may be involved.
The seed begins to develop while beneath the Earth, once it has begun to sprout it must continue to push forward until it has cleared the surface. Now it may rest and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine as it’s growth naturally comes into being.
There are times to celebrate, times to do nothing, times to sit in the stillness and observe and there are times to work. Now is the time to push forward with your work.
Stay focused on the job at hand. You have all that you need to get the job done successfully and with much ease. Don’t allow yourself to get distracted from your main goal at the moment.. now is the time to steady your feet and maintain balance.
