The Courage To Gaze Deeply In The Relationship Mirror

February is almost over and so is that Mercury Retrograde. I know many who will be happy about that one! In the last issue I began speaking about using the retrograde influence to re-evaluate, re-view, re-visit past, re-write future, re-create, and re-invent the self. It’s a great time of reflection on what works and what doesn’t to make room for positive change. Lucky for all of us that we had Valentine`s Day land right in the center of our retrograde so we could highlight aspects of love and romance. I can’t think of a better way to re-evaluate our perspectives on what love is and how we feel about relationships than to experience ourselves through another. “Ànother” can be a family member, friend, neighbour, etc… The closer the relationship, the deeper we are being invited into ourselves. Are you brave enough to gaze into the relationship mirror and recognize that all people, circumstances, and events are simply reflecting you to yourself? Your life is not happening to you, it is a projection and direct reflection of where you are at in your journey. Do you like what you see?

I am acutely aware that Richard, my beloved, shows to me on a regular basis where my unhealed wounds are deeply hidden, as romantic relationships all do. I can experience what is whole and blissful just the same. The key here is to be courageous enough to know that all emotional triggers are mine and are simply showing me where I need to work or where I am in harmony.

Our workplace relationships, social circles, parent/child relationships, and interactions with store clerks and telephone solicitors can show us who we are in any given moment. I invite you to take part in an exploration for even a couple of days. Do you have the courage to gaze deeply in the relationship mirror? Try experiencing your interactions as if everyone is holding a mirror up in front of your face to show you something about yourself. What are you learning? How does it feel?  Who have you attracted into your experience and why?

Discussion and sharing is welcomed!!


NOTE: This is a very sensitive message and I am bold enough to bring some very difficult subject matter up with some witty humour for the collective to ponder. I too am working my way through with healing. May we all find our deepest truth and move gracefully through chaotic, yet magical times.

Greetings All !!

WOW!! Have I got a powerful message to share today, and I’ve been pondering how to even express it. Likely the best way is to just allow it to flow, which is difficult because there’s a huge force working to channel through me and spread a very important message for these chaotic times in our evolution and awakening. What is that huge force? It’s my own Higher Self that has been sounding the alarm clock to say its time to wake up to who I am and what I am even doing here on this planet!! I’ve jumped out of bed and I’m now awake.

I realize that what I am about to do will NOT make me popular with parts of the new age movement or religious institutions, and may even have some people’s heads spinning around and spitting up pea soup in my direction (couldn’t resist that one ). I’m not here to win a popularity contest, I am here to live and be my truth and share that process of empowerment with others on a similar path. I am even going to admit to and share my own journey of spiritual ego adventures in this and future messages to assist those who are seeking their true nature. I have done my fair share of trying to show that I have better guides than yours, and my assortment of pretty guide colours and sparkles are more special than yours! Hahahahaha!!! HOLY CRAP!!! (A new high fiber cereal on the market) Maybe it’s time we have a bowl and start a new spiritual movement J Read on!

The last several months when I’ve been channelling my guides, I’ve been sensing something different. My guides feel different and I was having difficulty in defining what that was about…..that is until I woke up this morning and the message that came through is that the “guides” I have started experiencing were actually higher aspects of me. I have begun channelling the most powerful being for MY own journey…..ME! What a humbling realization!  I channel me for me, and I want to share how to channel you for you.

Yesterday I went to have lunch with a dear friend, Shirley, who brought out a new deck of tarot cards to show me. The afternoon became a mini workshop on reading tarot cards, where I taught Shirley the significance of the symbols in tarot and how they are basically a roadmap for our spiritual evolution and personal development and how we can all learn to find our own answers and healing along the way. Basically I told her that tarot is a key to unlock everything we need in our own journey, and to help us realize that absolutely everything we need already exists inside of us. How empowering is that!!?? I give much thanksgiving to Shirley for reminding me that we need not look outside of ourselves for anything. The name of the tarot deck if you are interested is, The Truth Seekers Tarot.

(I have been working with 6 important words as a template to live by. They are confident, living, truth, thanksgiving, unity, and grace. Now here is how I’ve been applying them to my life. When I awaken in the morning and when I go to sleep at night, I set the intention for my Higher Self to guide me to be confident in really living my truth with thanksgiving and grace, so that I may experience unity within self.)

This all brings me to the most important piece in this message, and the one that will draw much ire from many mystics, healers and their guides. There are so many benevolent beings out there waiting for us to wake up fully, and there are those that feed on our insecurities of perhaps missing the ascension and being left behind, which in religious terms would be the equivalent to not getting into heaven. How many “healers” out there are selling a “special fix” of something that they, or only a select few of people on the planet are gifted with to assist with ascension? I’ve seen everything from now from bubbles of protection, various sacred geometry patterns, colours, light codes, keys to portals, ancient template transmissions, DNA activations, special sounds (tuning forks and magic tones) and removal of old patterns to name a few that have drawn my attention lately. Think about this folks!! I invite you all to explore the possibility of who might be gifting these people with such special powers? And for those who accept such special gifts from beings who whisper into your ears, I invite you to explore why you even need a higher being to come down from the heavens and gift you with something profound that only you, or only the chosen few are able to share with everyone for the low, low price of $$$. And if you sign up for a few free transmissions, activations, downloads, codes, etc…. then the final and of course most important part can be purchased. Please visit the rest of my website and see how I can make you ascend more easily with MY special sparkle dust that you can’t get anywhere else. By the way, did I tell you that I am a special being from a special dimension and you aren’t? WHAT????? What have we come to, and how does that differ from a priest or the pope being so high and special that only they can grant us passage to heaven, if we follow their strict rules of course! Don’t forget to leave 10% of your income in the collection dish and if you pay extra to the church then you get better status in heaven than the common folks! WHAT????  Spirituality has become that commercialized that it now looks like a cheesy infomercial? Don’t even get me started on the multi level marketing scams that have hit the new age/spiritual scene with promises of great abundance, health, and happiness if you sign up 10 friends or more!

To be clear, I am all for appropriate energy exchange for the many legit, hard working, spiritual healers who give of themselves to empower others to awaken. I just think that the growing number of those with “very special powers” for a price is feeding on the fear energy.

Are we not intended to come fully into our own truth and power in this process and realize that we are what we have been waiting for? How about we wake up to the fact that we can all tune in to and merge with our higher self and receive the healing, messages, shapes, sounds, colours, and lights for ourselves? Who was there to help Jesus or Buddah or any others get their special things for ascension? I believe that we may on occasion need some assistance from each other to get us there, but we do all truly need to do the bulk of it ourselves. The magic spirit download packet pill may not really exist. The empowering journey unfolds when we become our own prophets and healers and stop looking “out there” for our solutions. We are ALL such spectacular spirits having this human experience and I know in my heart that no one gets left behind if they don’t sign up for external solutions, and what about the poor who can’t afford it? And on that note, I finish by stating that I now dedicate my journey to assisting those who wish to explore that truth within themselves!! Thursday night’s meditation (July 7th) will focus on tuning into our true selves without the external bells and whistles and see where our healing goes? Who’s onboard the “Empowerment Express #777” with me?  Train leaves at 7:00 PM on the 7th of the 7th month.


Greetings All !!

Let’s start with a quote by the Dalai Lama that seems to somewhat reflect my feelings and attitudes these days.

“There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples; my philosophy is kindness.”

– Dalai Lama

First let me say that I was blown away by the huge response to last week’s article, “BEWARE THE FALSE PROPHET.” I had a hard time catching up to the email replies and facebook comments and I was even more surprised by the numbers of people who read that and felt compelled to come to the guided meditation right after.  The teleconference option was well attended too!! I am going to continue to offer that as long as I do guided meditations and groups.

My intention behind the meditation is to go within my own sacred space, my inner temple where my inner prophet/healer/wise one lives, to access what I need from there. That is precisely what we worked on collectively during the July 7th circle with some really wonderful results, which I will speak of in a moment.

I truly believe that we can integrate our higher selves more fully into our physical bodies and also fine tune our intuitive perceptions so we can clearly see what it is that is needed to navigate our way through the 2012 shift. These are definitely the times to be focussed on our spiritual journey with the utmost of discernment of what is presented to us. I have never seen so many “solutions” and “miracle fixes” to help us ascend, or differing and often times conflicting messages from channels and their guides. So how do we figure out what is appropriate for us and what isn’t within this seeming chaos? There are so many “trickster beings” hanging about, cleverly disguised and many of the spiritual healers/teachers etc… only need a little ego snag to get hooked on, which opens the doorway to all kinds of very tempting potentials of being “special” and having “gifts” that very few or none of the rest of the population has.

Please do remember that there are many very beautiful and gifted spiritual healers, teachers, and intuitive readers, who are truly in service and walk a path of integrity and truth. I am hoping to share some tips on discerning the genuine from the others.

The first step in discerning is to stop, breathe, meditate, and really get in touch with your higher self first. When you have fine tuned that connection in conjunction with your connection to Spirit/Source/God/I AM, then your ability to see things with clarity is heightened significantly. In last week’s meditation we asked any guides in attendance to stand back and observe while we accessed our own healing, messages, akashic records, or whatever each individual needed in that moment. It was nice to connect with only ourselves, not to mention empowering!!

One of the participants last week, Brenda Brooks, had a profound meditation experience that she has allowed me to share with all of you. During meditation we had invited a further merging of our Higher Selves into our bodies, which was a very powerful experience, when Brenda reported feeling a heavy dark energy that had been bothering her for quite a while move out through her head with a big pop! She said it had cleared and she felt herself full of light. She also felt about 100 pounds lighter afterward and still feels that way today. Brenda had a very powerful self-healing experience that came in through her own Higher Self. Go Brenda!! She must have had a big bowl of that new cereal, Holy Crap, for that spiritual movement!! (And yes, that really is a new organic breakfast cereal. Excellent marketing that we will never forget.)

Let’s touch base on a few other tips that I have personally found helpful when seeking services from others, but please remember that these are my ideas only and need not be your truth, unless it feels appropriate. As a service provider I too seek assistance from colleagues on occasion.

1. If someone approaches and says they have a message for you from spirit that you have not asked for, or tells you that you “have to do something.” Perhaps they tell you what your truth is? Higher Beings usually wait to be asked.

2. A service someone is offering includes a download, template, activation, etc…that they are going to place in your field. That is what we call an implant!! (energetic or otherwise).  These are usually people who believe they are the “special” or “chosen ones” for the saving of humanity. These implants (if they are even real) exist outside of you. Do you really believe you have been created so imperfect that you need someone else to do the job on spirit’s behalf?

3. A person attempting to do anything in point number 2 without you asking for it.

4. A reader or healer tells you its time for a reading or healing session and wants you to book an appointment. You can determine the right timing and right person to make an appointment for yourself!

5. A healer who has so many gadgets, gizmos, machines, and toys to work on you with. In my opinion, you find spirit and healing within and not without. Some of these items are ok and can be helpful, but be aware of the distraction of dazzling colours, noises, etc… that come with this.

These are just some ideas and some areas I have been caught up in through the journey, as I’ve learned much through trial and error.
