✨ Sparkly Diamond & Ruby Peppermint Mocha ✨

✨ Sparkly Diamond & Ruby Peppermint Mocha ✨

​Organic, healthy, made with real cacao and oh so delicious and yummy! Did I mention that it’s crystal infused?! 😋

If you’re anything like me, I love a good cup of coffee in the morning. Every once in a while I’ll get a wire hair and want to switch my usual cup of Joe with something festive and fun. I really love the white peppermint mocha at ⭐️💵’s, the one they serve this time year, but really don’t want to spend $5 every time I crave one. I like to try making things myself, and splurge occasionally on the “real deal” when out shopping for gifts. 

So, here is what I came up with, and if I may say so myself, it is scrumptious. This is my newest crystal infused ingestible concoction of deliciousness. I include links to where you can find the ingredients in case you need them, and even a place to find really fun mugs, too!

1 – cup hot water

1 – tbsp Organic Cacao Powder

1 – Scoop CafeCeps (an amazing cortycep infused coffee with so many great benefits!)

2/3 – drops DiamondRuby Tinctures  (so very festive, and regal 💎)

2/3 – drops Peppermint extract

2/3 – drops Organic Vanilla extract

1 – tbsp Organic Cane Sugar  (you may also use 1-3 drops stevia for a sugar free option)

4 – tbsp Coconut Creamer  (or whatever milk/creamer you desire)

Heat water up to boiling – or if you have a tea kettle –  until it whistles atcha 😉

In the meantime fill your favorite mug with the remaining ingredients. When water is ready just pour it right into your cup and stir.

And Whaaalaaah!  Easy Peasy! 

You can always add actual peppermint candy canes or chocolate syrup if you want to but this is keeping it somewhat simple and healthy. For a kids version of this you can always leave out the coffee and add a 1/2 tbsp extra cacao if you would like, maybe even some marshmallows for fun! I’d love to hear what you think of this in the comments below. Feel free to share with your friends and family!

Why I chose Diamond and Rubies 💎❤️ besides the obvious color coordination with a classic candy cane:

Diamonds are excellent for clearing the energy field of density and aligning the aura with higher light frequencies. They model transformation, and transmutation, encouraging us to develop ourselves from our current state into one filled with the light of the Divine (holiday spirit?!). Diamonds often carry the energies of angelic beings who are aligned with both courage and light (let the angel choir sing). They encourage us to bravely express our most sacred self (heart-centered service). Diamonds do not work directly on the emotional body, but they do infuse all energetic levels of self with a full spectrum of light energy. This can help dispel density in the emotional body, allowing one to feel lighter, more joyful and more aligned with (Christmas?) spirit. 😉

Ruby teaches us to enjoy being in the physical world. It helps us to perceive the spiritual energy that exists throughout the realm of matter (totally helping us get into the Christmas spirit!), and offers lessons in mastering the transformation of thought and intent into physical manifestation. Ruby helps to release the physical imprint of past emotional trauma or physical abuse from the cellular record. Great for healing the first and second chakras. It can be used to treat inadequate circulation or energy flow in the feet and legs (needed after all that running around and shopping!) and can be used in weight regulation, particularly where weight is held in the body in order to ground one in the physical world (hello Christmas cookies!). 😆

So there you have it! Enjoy this recipe and share a cup of cheer with a friend!

Sparkly Blessings!

Your Gold is in the Shadows…

What is shadow work?

Shadow work is dealing with the emotions that have been pushed aside, shadow work is working through the programs that run in the unconscious mind, shadow work is looking at the skeletons in your closet.
Shadow work, in my eyes, is what it means to be a light worker – You can not be one without the other.
“Beneath the social mask we wear every day, we have a hidden shadow side: an impulsive, wounded, sad, or isolated part that we generally try to ignore.  The Shadow can be a source of emotional richness and vitality, and acknowledging it can be a pathway to healing and an authentic life.”

To shed light on the parts of us that we keep hidden from the world, the parts of us that we rather not look at, the parts of us that keep us small. I haven’t  always felt safe in the dark. It wasn’t until I realized it was the only place I could turn for the clarity I was seeing that I learned to appreciate when my shadows showed their teeth. Now I embrace the moments as a place to find calm in the darkness. I find the dark to be a place where peace is found, answers, and lessons. When I find myself in the dark, I know I’m on to something good, because I always surface with wisdom of my own. I know it may sound crazy, I but I have learned to love my shadows, and so can you…

 Hi I’m Katie, and I am a shadow healer. What does this actually mean and  why do I call myself a shadow healer?
For one, I call myself a shadow healer because when my clients come to me they are suffering in some way and looking for relief. Often my approach to healing and mentoring provides relief by helping people to understand their part in their own suffering and to develop new strategies to cope with their emotions. I give them tools to get in touch with the deeper parts of themselves that are seeking their attention.
These deep and often darker parts of ourselves have been denied oxygen, but they seethe underneath in the soul, yearning to be seen. They are the lies, the bullshit stories and falsities that we may have adapted and adopted along the way on our journey. We all have them, whether they came from our parents, teachers, peers, old lovers, or society.
Shadow Work is a practice that helps us to become whole again. It works on the premise that you must 100% OWN your shadows, rather than avoiding or repressing them, denying or projecting them, to experience a deep genuine healing.

In the shadow realm is where we find our GOLD.

When I look at my clients, whether they come to me for life coaching or mentoring, deep healing work such as chakra balancing and healing, or rich insights through past life regression, they almost always express how much of a mess they feel inside. Jumbled up mess of confusion. They are generally in fight or flight mode, not knowing which way to go, feeling scattered, ungrounded, and alone. They feel weird, awkward, singled out. And they’re tired, tired of running and tired of searching. I know that they are usually tired of their own shit. They know deep down within them they are meant for something more than mediocre.

When I look at you I see your deep potential. I see who you really are beneath the surface of all the shadows, the layers that cover the truth that lies within you. I see a masterpiece waiting to be surfaced, I see that shiny gem with many facets bursting to be carved, a muse waiting to be set and it’s rightful place.

I see your glittery goodness.

Underneath all of the confusion from past programming, emotions that have been buried, not dealt with and suppressed, there is a Goddess, a Warrior Spirit, aching to be set free from the chains in which one has been bound by conditioning.
My coaching is no cookie cutter, one and done type of application. I give tools and insights based upon your unique experience. I take the time to create a unique healing journey for each individual. Yes, these tools can be applied and make a difference in everyone’s lives, but I customize these experiences to fit where you are right now in the moment. This daunting and often scary task is a requirement of every human being, but you do not have to go at it alone.

I’m here to help you when you are ready.

Shadow Work should not be undertaken if you struggle with low self-esteem. Exploring your demons will likely make you feel a million times worse about yourself and may spiral into self-hatred. Before doing Shadow Work, I strongly and emphatically encourage you to work on Self-Love. Shadow Work should only be undertaken by those who have healthy and stable self-worth, and a friendly relationship with themselves. I offer guidance and healing in this area as well. Please contact me for a consultation here to get started on your personal path to healing today.

Merlin is a powerful ascended master who helps spiritual teachers and healers focus their energies in beneficial ways.”
2. Melchizedek ~ Spiritual Law of Attraction ⚛️
“The situation you are inquiring about has come to you via the spiritual Law of Attraction. You have attracted certain people or situations because they mirror your thoughts, emotions, and beliefs. In the same way, people and situations that you once found desirable are now moving out of your life as you have shifted your energy through your spiritual path. “Like attracts like” means that everything and everyone that you draw into your life is similar to your thought patterns. If you want to change what or who you attract, hold more positive, loving, and joyful thoughts. The ascended masters and angels can help you with this shift.”

You can change or heal this situation by elevating your thoughts to a more positive level. Your prayers and affirmations have attracted a wonderful new person or situation into your life.

Melchizedek was a Canaanite priest-king and teacher of the patriarch Abraham. He is associated with Archangel Michael and Jesus in many ancient spiritual texts, including some who interchange his name with Michael’s and Jesus’s.

Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of prosperity who helps us overcome financial fears and tap into the river of abundance that is available to everyone. It is helpful to put a statue or painting of Lakshmi in the financial corner (according to Feng Shui principles, this is the left rear corner of your home or office as you stand looking inward from the front door). Call upon Lakshmi to help transmute money worries into financial flow.
6. St. Francis ~ Follow Your Heart ?
“The answer to your question is in your heart. This card signifies that you can trust your heart’s true desires, even if you can’t clearly see how the outcome will appear or manifest.

St. Francis of Assisi was born to a wealthy Italian cloth merchant, but he later renounced his inheritance to follow an ascetic spiritual path. As he volunteered in hospitals and ministered to the sick, he gained followers who eventually became the Franciscans. Many legends speak of St. Francis’s ability to communicate with animals, and today he is the patron saint of the environment and animals. Call upon St. Francis for help in situations where your family or friends do not understand your choices or spiritual path, or any issue involving animals.
Much LOVE and many crystal infused blessings!

A Challenge to Overcome? Or a Gift for Integration…

A Challenge to Overcome? Or a Gift for Integration…

A friend of mine, Vito Mucci shares some really beautiful insights to ponder with us on the daily… one of his most recent posts was about how someone’s diagnosis is not so much of a challenge to overcome, but possibly more of a lesson or tool to be integrated.

I personally can attest to that. Just because I haven’t been clinically diagnosed with anything doesn’t mean I would receive a clean bill of health in the mental department. LOL In fact, I have had my share of ups and downs in my life, and have even been put on medication for ADD or ADHD as a child, been prescribed meds for anxiety and depression in my young adulthood, and pain pills for symptoms in my body that, on a soul level, were a cry out for love and attention.

Some of the things we carry (diagnosed, or otherwise) are not really as burdensome as they are perceived by the public eye. Due to the labeling, or diagnosing these symptoms are given, speaking from the medical standpoint, one may be diagnosed clinically insane! And in the view of impeccability, its nearly impossible to dodge this bullet completely. We are born in a world where everything is already decided for us on a societal level, whether we agree with it or not, we have had to adopt or adapt somehow to the proverbial “norm”. In actuality, or on a more multi-dimensional level of existence, an individual quite possibly is a highly sensitive and psychic human, dealing with major sensory overload. So, to me this says that our mental health, based on a clinical diagnosis, isn’t always what serves best for any given individual.

What would serve them, and all of us really, is to learn more about this phenomena and how these individuals perceive the world around them. We just might learn a thing or two. And if allowed, we can drop the label or sentencing of an “illness”, embrace the fact that we are all quite literally “insane” or “ill” to some degree.

What’s needed more is real attention, connection, and learning how to integrate these tools of each individuals personality. Some of which really are gifts, or abilities to sense non material phenomena around us. Not to say that medication isn’t helpful and needed at times, because they are, especially for an individual who has been so sensory overloaded they have lost a grip on all of the 3 dimensional reality. But, more seeking to understand the person, not the diagnosis, would be highly beneficial.

I believe a soul chooses to come in with certain challenges or abilities. From physical, mental or emotional disturbances… PTSD and depression, I would say are not an ability per say, but a backfire or a by-product of an ability, misunderstood. After all we are a product of our environment, and in the case where one is not embraced, encouraged and nurtured for their abilities, we can begin the process of self doubt, lies, false truths and programming which really started the moment we entered this world.

Being highly sensitive myself, I could easily have been put on medication on many occasions in my life for various reasons, as I mentioned above. We live in a time and a world where sensitivity is not necessarily cherished, appreciated, or embraced. Until now. I see it shifting quite a bit. I’m sure you have as well. People waking up and wanting to understand these things about their loved ones or of themselves.

Feeling more deeply than before, seeing things you maybe never saw before, hearing things that’s aren’t really there… smelling a scent that is not really around you… these are all sensitivities that we have innately as human beings. Even animals have them, they just don’t have the filters we do and the cognizance as we do. To be human is such a powerful gift in itself. We are some of the most powerful beings alive in our Universe and yet we use our power for what? We are the only animals on the planet that have the ability to speak. To spell. To cast spells. That subject is for another time… but think about it, we are so powerful! Moving on…

What’s weird to me is when I hear of people wanting to ‘one up’ other sensitive beings, claiming to have an ability or gift that they don’t. Ya sounds super weird but it does happen. It’s now like the new way of “keeping up with the Jones’s”, spiritual one upping. Or the shame that one may receive for claiming to hold a gift, that as well, to me is so weird. Why would one shame another for being sensitive? The ego is a powerful tool… another subject I’ll touch on one of these days…

We are all sensitive beings to some degree. Hence why I say we all could be considered insane, or ill, in one way, shape or fashion. So, the idea that people are now starting to compare sensitivities is just the way the pendulum swings… people wanting to be more sensitive then they are, which is truly beautiful to me. It means to me that you are ready to learn more about the unseen world around and IN you.

We can and will find a balance. I truly believe we are paving the forefront for our children, as our parents did for us. And our children’s children will be the ones that will benefit from the fruits of our labors. I hope to witness it in this lifetime. In the meantime, I encourage you to seek to understand more about yourself. Seek to love yourself more. Because when you love yourself, it’s so much easier to love others. Compassion comes naturally, service is a natural response, and it ripples outward, farther than you can see.

I love you.

Thank you Vito for the inspiration and sharing your wisdom and insights with us so freely.

Be the love you seek in the world


Be the love you seek in the world.

We all have heard the saying, and I’m pretty sure we all have been the recipient and the giver of random acts of kindness one timer another in life. But have you ever wondered just how deeply that your kindness has effected someone? It is the little things, after all, that really count on days when we want to throw our hands up with the “ah fuggits“, as my father in law calls them. Like helping someone carry supplies, or clean up a spill, sharing some loose change with a person who’s short a few cents in the check out lane. How often do we reach out to make a new friend? If not, why so? Or check in on an old friend to see how they are? Relationships make the world go round. These little notions are all in the service and light of Love.  ?


I was blessed to make a new friend today. I have new people asking to be my friends and connect every day, but this one was different, and timely. We quickly connected, engaged in a conversation, and it was meaningful, powerful, and heart felt. It all started just by sending me a meme wishing love an healing to m life. This person saw me for who I really am and shared their intuitive thoughts with me. I felt seen and heard. It deeply moved me to tears. ?

What this person didn’t know is that I woke up this morning feeling pretty bummed out, grumpy, fascinated with my kids and their morning rituals, or lack there of and still tired. ? I was not my best self this morning, being totally honest I was pretty stuck in a rut for a good minute there. Hey, I’m human, we all have those moments, let’s just keep it real. ?

“As Humans, being seen heard, and felt is so important for our human species. We truly are tender, fragile souls.”

This persons unexpected kindness, their perception of me shared from the heart, helped me to shift my own perception of myself. They took the time to share suggestions to help me, guided me through some really great exercises for clearing my energy, and to share in the oneness that we truly are… This lifted my mood, my energy and my gratitude back to where it belongs. I was in a state of happiness and joy. I was needing this interaction more than I realized. Being seen and heard is so important for our human species. We truly are gentle, fragile souls. More kindness is needed. True soul connections. Validation, Oneness vs Separation. In this type of interaction we find safety in being vulnerable, being real, and exchanging our light frequencies, and witness our divine connection to all.

We shared our gratitude for one another. I thanked them for showing up when they did, for just being there for me right when I needed it; You never really know how much that one small act of kindness can really go so far in another persons life… I have had the best day today! And I feel so full of peace, understanding and support from my guides. They sent me an angel to be a messenger of remembrance. Needless to say, I am grateful.

Kindness truly is so very powerful, doesn’t cost a dime, and is totally underrated. For everyone you touch, there is a ripple effect, so, as the saying goes, “Spread that shit like wild fire!” When Love shows up unexpectedly, it truly can change a persons whole day. Be the love you seek in the world.

Thank you to my dear new friend, I appreciate you, I see you too, and I thank you. Thank you Spirit for sending me an earth angel to remind me of my worthiness, my innate ability, truth.

Deep Inner Reflecting and Re-Calibrating our “Fun Scale”…

RE-Calibrating our “Fun Scale”

I’ve been playing with my logos on an app that’s pretty fun! I figured I would share them, why not?! What do you think? It’s fun, if anything, and that counts for something!

To say fun is important to me is an understatement.

Fun for this Aries sun, Gemini moon, is VERY important.

I used to gage what’s not in alignment with my truth by weighing it on my #funscale…not always accurate obviously, but at the time it made sense. I have learned over the years that I have been limiting my fun-ness! Here comes the “Deep thoughts, by Katie” moment…

First of all, my fun scale was relative to my emotions. Emotions are indeed a tool, or better yet, our inner compass, gaging if we are in alignment or if we are out of sync. Our emotions can be fickle, they shift often through out the day, especially if you’re a woman. Sometimes, our emotions can be deceiving. We may think they’re showing us “this is not in alignment with your truth” when indeed they may be saying “here’s an old wound that needs your attention”. We react to emotions, rarely creating them consciously on a regular basis but are known to do so from time to time when needed, such as pushing through a work shift, or if you’ve ever worked in customer service of any kind, We all have faked that smile, wanted to scream from between our teeth, but pushed through. (don’t lie, you know you’ve faked it occasionally too, we all do).

So, here’s a “fun” story.

One night, in conversation with my now husband, we were talking about our journey together thus far and how much we’ve grown as individuals… he really has an amazing self awareness. One of the things he exceeds me in is Face to Face conflict. Now this is a time that our emotions really may not be saying any truth, but ego is stepping in and protecting us from some kind of perceived harm. This is a good time for discernment with your emotions, not responding from them.

Until several years ago, I strayed away from what made me feel uncomfortable: difference of opinion, obscure perceptions, conflicts of interest or battles of the ego, calling someone out even if it was right and just, even sticking up for myself! Right before Ray came into my life, I was doing a lot of this work with my shadow self, owning where I didn’t speak my truth, in turn creating problems not only for myself but for others down the road, living in a lie I led myself into or my parents led me in, believing false teachings or projections of others pain, their emotions, to be my truth. I was not necessarily physically approaching these people that hurt me, but energetically releasing the blame and shame, and loving them, myself and the experience for the growth it provided me.

It’s no wonder I attracted a man such as Ray, he’s good at this stuff! And, we always seem to attract the teachers we need when we are ready, right? He helped me a lot with this process and continues to impress and inspire me with his ninja mind and “fun meter” skills.

Getting really clear about what it is in ourselves that we are seeking: not outwardly, but inward is really key. It’s not them, it’s me, or it’s not you, it’s them! This is part of radical self awareness and acceptance. This is part of being able to love ourselves, in turn, love everyone for who they really are.

So, back on track: He loves calling people out, and, get this, being called out! Weird, I know! It must be a Virgo thing, or something but this alone has fascinated me to no end about him… he really is a rare and unique breed, the unicorn male.

I, on the other hand, have leaned more toward avoiding situations like this pretty much my whole life. I avoided conflict like the plague. It’s always been so uncomfortable, frightening, and created even a PTSD like response to my system. Symptoms like this had wreaked havoc through out my life. Now I know that my “PTSD symptoms” are a red flag from my soul saying “look at me! Pay attention to this! I need attention here badly!” I have worked on really leaning into that space of discomfort instead, for quite some time now, and I slowly but surely have seen a shift. Where as I used to think “well, this is not in alignment with my truth”, and avoid it at all costs, I now take a step back and observe with curiosity. How does this tie into my fun scale? I’m getting there, I promise.

When in relationship, we can get triggered sometimes, (that’s essentially one of the major points of relationships) they can lead us to those sticky uncomfortable places. Ray has mastered his mind enough to where now He LOVES it! He’s having a blast, getting down to the nitty gritty of our past wounds and false beliefs, calling me out and pointing out my flaws and short comings… and I’m trying to resist curling up in a ball or hiding under a rock! Mind you, I can have the same conversation with someone else, but when it comes to talking about it with my husband, the man I love and adore, who I want to spend the rest of my life with, I want to hide? Why?!

Because part of me was afraid he wouldn’t love me if it were true. Isn’t this a sad truth we all more than likely have experienced at one time or another. Fear of truly being seen, and not being accepted and loved for who we really are. This is false.

I looked at him in disbelief, having feelings of being so incredibly vulnerable and perplexed by his “fun meter“?! Part of me was trying really hard to avoid my ego taking over, because I knew he was right! Where another part of me was really trying to hear him genuinely, from the Heart. I got defensive and hurt feelings, and proceeded to give him a dose of his own medicine,

“How do you like THAT, Mr. Wallen”

I thought to myself. HA! Then, of all the things, he says:

“This is really Fun!”

In all seriousness. I couldn’t believe it. And, I couldn’t help it. I burst into laughter, I about died. I laughed far too hard for someone who was having a deep intense conversation with their partner. Like belly rolling on the ground kind of laughter LOL.


I had a break through! After I let my triggered emotions subside, and I could digest what he was saying with a compassionate heart for him AND myself, I got it! And that felt really good! I said to him:

“You have a twisted way of looking at fun, if you think THIS is fun”.

Oy vey! He reiterated to me how Fun it really was (and still is) for him. I finally got it when he share his perception with me. Here’s Rays golden nugget, his reasoning and the truth that can be found in these sticky situations: It’s in these passionate, vulnerable conversations that:

A. We (our partner or person we are relating to) get to know the other better. Really, they help us get to know OURSELVES better!

B. Which helps us communicate better, getting to know each other’s deepest inner needs. Which: with an open heart and mind:

C. Always leads to growth! For us as individuals, and as a couple or partnership.

I had to sit back and think about that for a minute.

“Wow!” I was now laughing for a whole new reason! It really was fun! I am becoming crazy(er)?!

I thought, “not only does this guy truly thrive on TRUTH but he has mastered his ego AND his brain enough to where he can, in an instant, see the gift in every conflict, debate, or alternate perception. He really has learned to love this shi(f)t.”

What a trip. What a GIFT! So, maybe I had been looking at it all wrong?! Maybe…Fun is found in many places!? That too, is all just a shift in perception, right?!

It is SO fun when we hit a wall and see it for what it is, a challenge to be tackled, a chance to grow! Time to rise, climb, and shine, right?! It is so true! Growing is FUN, and fascinating, and fabulous, in all its painful aches and stretch marks. These are the places where the MAGIC can really begin to UNFOLD, our perceptions can SHIFT, we can see the AHAS and Epiphanies rolling through… WE BLOW OUR OWN MINDSWe blow those false beliefs about ourselves or about the world right on out of our brains. Rewriting, RE-WIRING, RE-Training, UN-learning, DE-programming to RE-program! YAY!

WE BLOW OUR OWN MINDS! We blow those false beliefs about ourselves or about the world right on out of our brains. Re-writing, REWIRING, Re-Training, UN-Learning, DE-Programming to RE-Program!


So, we invite you: Next time you’re thinking “Well, this sucks to no end” or “Omg, I am so frustrated!” switch that frustration to “FASCINATING!” Turn the ‘closed up’ program running your Brain into a moment to open up to WONDER. Even the “not so fun” things can become truly exciting moments of growth. And THAT is really FUN. This is by no means to say I will be giving up fun logo making, dancing, playing laughing and straight up being a goober for this new found kind of fun, not by ANY means! But I have widened my perspective on how to look at these stickier situations in life and I hope we have helped you along your journey too. That is also fun for me, and I do not plan on stopping that fun any time soon, either!

I wonder what you are pondering on this. Let us know what you think, or share an experience where you witnessed the shift in your own perceptions to more Truth and Freedom of thought in the comments.

Thank you so much, and Many Crystal Infused Blessings,

Katie & Ray

1. Rain – Purification –

No matter whether is is a light shower or a deluge, rain cleanses and purifies. The moisture that has evaporated from the various bodies of water on the planet and was drawn into the atmosphere now returns to Earth as liquid precipitation in Natures’ vast and comprehensive water-recycling program. Depending on when and where the rain falls, it can come as a welcome relief or a nuisance.
Even the air smells fresh after a good rain. It also brings in clean water, which provides needed sustenance for the plants, animals, and humans. At its most intense, rainstorms arrive as an avalanche of water, often accompanied by great and powerful winds, with considerable flooding and destruction as an unfortunate consequence of Nature’s impersonal balancing act. What is purged makes way for new life to appear.
Purifying your mind, body, and spirit is the task that is put before you. Purify your mind by identifying a prominent belief you carry about yourself that inhibits  you from being fully engaged in life, from showing up 100 percent of the time. Purify your heart by allowing yourself to breathe in and out blessings and forgiveness so that you can love even more deeply.
Let yourself feel your grief – truly feel it – so that the rivers of your tears become miniature baptisms that help heal the wounds in your soul. If necessary, detoxify your body  (the temple and seat of the soul) by changing your diet, doing a cleanse for a few days, or simply drinking more water. increasing the daily amount of water you drink with deep appreciation for its purpose will revitalize your spirit.
It is no wonder that in some indigenous languages, water is called “lifeblood,” as it is so essential to every form of Life on Earth. Take some time to purify yourself.

2. Wolf – Instinct

Wolf (Instinct) is today’s oracle card and it’s message is to trust your own instincts, even if ignoring them may seem easier in the short term.
You have an innate ability to know exactly where to go, what to do and how to do it. Even though you often forget to use your instinctual abilities, you still have them! You may experience this today as a feeling of excitement, or tiredness when someone suggests an idea to you.
Sometimes its hard to trust your instincts if you have a strong feeling that you should feel or act a certain way. You may fear offending someone if you go with your instincts, but realize that this is only a social fear and your instincts really do know the best path for you. Its safe for you to trust them.
Get in touch with your instincts by meditating in nature (or just imagining yourself in nature while you meditate), and asking your instincts to reveal themselves and bring you guidance. I did this the other day and was amazed at the insights I got, as well as all the creative ideas that came flooding in! Make sure you keep a notebook and pen handy for afterwards.

3. Mountain – Strength

The massiveness of the mountain in this image – bearing the  blankets of snow as spectacular hues from the sun reflect from its body – evokes a sense of impenetrable and immovable strength and stature. A mountain’s quiet, resolute immensity leaves us in awe and inspires us to reach for greater heights. Yet, it can also pose challenges.
The firm base of the mountain evolves to the narrower crest in its attempt to reach the sky. More daring individuals become enamored by the peak and see it as something to conquer, although it can never be truly conquered. When the mountain feels threatened in some way or simply shrugs its shoulders, the strength exhibited can wreak havoc for all beings caught on its skin.
It makes no sense to deny the strength you have at the cost of allowing yourself to be reactive and subject to external influences far beyond what is healthy for you. Imagine yourself as a mountain of strength, solidly grounded in the Earth, your head held high as if you were touching the sky. Do so without straining, just as the mountain itself does not strain.
The current situation calls for you to be vigilant, but not to the point of fear or paranoia. Be that rock of strength that you are capable of becoming. The solidness of our resolve will be clearly communicated when you model yourself after the towering immensity of a mountain, impenetrable and inscrutable. Standing steady like a rock is what is called for at this time.

4. Waterfall – Effortless

Water naturally falls from higher to lower ground, eventually finding its way to the ocean.  One of nature’s most exquisite and dynamic demonstrations of this fact is the waterfall.  Graceful, powerful and effortless, she can take the breath away with her cascading beauty.  She readily flows around that which may impede.  She’s extremely patient, persistent and skillful in the way she ever so gradually shapes and carves her passageway down the slopes of the mountain.  Note how the waterfall forms ribbons that accord with the artistry of the stone faces she descends, joining the calmer pool for a rest before continuing her journey.  There is no strain or stress in this movement, the water simply follows natural law in the interaction between the formation of the precipice that she traverses and the powerful fluidity and adaptability of her flow. Effortless.

You have come to the edge of your comfort zone, there is no need to resist moving past that perceived precipice of who you are, how you can be or what you can do. Spirit is asking you to step beyond the edge and allow yourself to do so with ease.  At times physical exertion may be necessary but when performed with fluidity and grace you’ll find the movement moves you, effortlessly. Approach your current situation with awareness and grace, do not try to make it effortless as that just creates more strain. The key word here is allow, even if you are being asked to let go completely and tumble into the brink of creation itself.  You will find the waters there to be ultimately still and calm. Keep your focus on your solar plexus and your breath.  Relaxing and yielding to the movement that is occurring at any given moment makes your life effortless.

Day #23


Spessartine Garnet

Satya Mani Quartz


Perspective –

12/Perspective/Archangel Chamuel – “There’s a better way! Pause for reflection and insight. Dare to be different!”

The number 12 represents: “Keep your thoughts positive about the future, as what you are thinking influences your future. This a message to keep your faith and hope strong, because these are strong determining factors right now.” (Angel Numbers 101)

Archangel Chamuel – Archangel Chamuel is known for helping people find whatever it is that they are seeking. His name means “the eyes of God”, and you can call upon him when you’re trying to understand a situation from a different perspective. (taken from the Archangel Power Tarot Cards guidebook)

This card is all about looking at things from a different perspective. Perhaps it means seeing the situation through the other person’s eyes, to understand what they are going through, or why they feel the way they do. Sometimes it means throwing out all of our preconceived notions and ideas about the way things “should” be and entertain new notions and ideas that might change the balance of the situation for the good of all involved.

We are all faced with challenges and situations that are puzzling in these ever changing times. Our old way of looking at things may not work anymore, and so we are being asked to be flexible and to soften our stance while trying to see through new eyes and with a new way of being. Let’s face it, the world our parents or grandparents knew is passing away and we are dealing with a very new reality. That means what worked in the old world will not work in the new. We have to adapt or be left behind. See through the eyes of the heart, because living from our hearts is the new reality.

When not sure of what course of action to take, step back and take the time to look at the situation, asking all the while “what would love do in this situation?” Love will never lead us astray. If we follow our hearts we are choosing the best solution for the highest good of all involved. This way of living and doing things will not be easy, it will not be readily accepted by those still functioning from the ego mind, but we are encouraged to live and have our being in love. Dare to be different! Dare to be our authentic selves in ALL situations!
