This week’s angel message is a spiritual one-focusing on your higher self and your soul path/life purpose. I have been guided to use the card interpretations as provided in the accompanying books-rather than intuitively interpreting the message-for this reading. This week’s message is to have the courage and confidence to be your true authentic self. This is also a time to ask yourself, “How can I make the world a better place?” With the New Year approaching-comes a new stronger, wiser and truer YOU!
As usual, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your current situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
Silver Vibrations: Your vibration is being raised to a higher level. You may be feeling that you are “in this world” but somehow not “of this world.” This is the magic of creation at work in your life. As silver starlight enters your aura your energy field is strengthened, giving you a clearer connection to Spirit and revealing the greater purpose of your life.
All That Glitters: It is only human to want to adorn oneself in trinkets and paint a pretty picture of oneself. It’s natural to want to acquire the trappings of status-or to deny them as a statement of rebellion. But if it sparkles, is it better? Whether it’s a fast car, a big house, a title or position, the stamp of authority or the sparkling of diamonds-these icons let you know something about a person, place or thing. Or do they? The truth is that people seek to acquire things because of what they think these things will do for them and how they symbolically elevate them and make them more attractive. This card signals that it is time to see beyond the adornments and the superficial. It is time to see beyond the surface. Learn to recognize the masks that people (including yourself) wear and the motives underlying them. Imagine all the glitter is gone. Questions to consider: Are you being true to yourself, and in turn, true to others? Are you seeing people for who they truly are-beyond what they are portraying and the mask they are wearing? Have you put someone on a pedestal that perhaps they don’t deserve or want to be on?
Door to Personal Healing & Happiness: New beginnings in your personal life. This card is a harbinger of positive change. Whether you are working on some inner healing, such as breaking an addiction, or looking to make some external changes, such as finding a new place to live, this card signals that your life is opening up and new opportunities are about to appear. The changes you’ve been working on are ready to blossom with wonderful results, so make sure you see your personal intentions through with continued action and optimistic expectations.
New Beginnings & A Fresh Start: A chapter of your life is closing and with that comes the beginning of a new chapter. You might be just noticing this new growth. This card encourages you to keep going. There is great goodness in store for you. Keep the faith and stay optimistic.
Potential specific meanings:
Be Brave: Even though you might feel like you are travelling through the unknown-you have nothing to fear. Your guardian angel is protecting and guiding you. There is a blessing in this situation-focus on finding the benefit and you’re sure to discover it. Someone who intimidates you could prove to be a loyal ally. There is an opportunity here to grow wiser, stronger and more confident. Face conflict with grace and love. This situation will resolve itself rapidly in a miraculous way. Your role is to stay positive, speak your truth and be brave.
Have Confidence: You can do it! You have everything you need to complete the mission before you. You will also be continually guided-follow your heart and intuition. The more you can depersonalize this mission and know that it is not about you-the better. You are worthy; you are protected, guided and supported every step of the way. Stay in the moment and focus on one step at a time. Give your worries and concerns to God and the angels. Ask the angels to increase your faith. Trust that God’s love and wisdom are working through you.
If You Get Nervous, Focus on Service: You are being called into spiritual service-as a healer or teacher. Often, when we overcome life’s hardships and heal ourselves we are put in a position to help teach and heal others going through similar hardships. Any anxiety that arises has no bearing on your readiness for service. The ego wrestles to gain control through fear. The antidote is to focus on your higher self’s mission-which is to lovingly serve. Your higher self is 100% psychic and tapped into divine healing energy. To operate out of your higher self, focus on blessing-not impressing-others. Open your heart to loving everyone involved and ask yourself the question “How May I Serve?” to put your higher self in charge.
Books: This card has several different meanings. It could mean that you have a deep affinity for spiritual or self-help books. This card affirms that you’d be very fulfilled by taking your love of books to the next level. You might be dreaming of immersing yourself in some good books. This card could also mean that the answer to your question is within books. So pay attention to titles that are recommended to you, books that you are intuitively drawn to or books that mysteriously fall from shelves as they contain guidance for you. This card could also be a call for you to take definite action toward your book-related dreams. Whether you desire to write a book, open a bookstore or read more-take the next step without delay. Questions to consider: Have new interests and passions been stirred up for you? Are you interested in studying something you are passionate or interested in? Have you been wondering about your life’s purpose? Have you been wanting to share your story and write a book? Writing about your life is very healing and could in turn benefit others in need of healing.
A Blessing in Creativity: Express yourself creatively and reconnect with your inner child. As ideas and inspirations surface, express them without thought, censorships or judgement. Don’t try to make sense of things, just allow; just feel; just be. This is a time where all is possible. You are limited only by what you think is impossible.
Wishing everyone a fabulous New Year and cheers to a fabulous New YOU! Thank you for reading my messages and letting me be a part of your life.
Affirmation for Personal Healing & Happiness:
I am strong, focused and self-directed. I have the power to create wonderful new realities in my life.
Prayer for New Beginnings & A Fresh Start:
“Archangel Michael, thank you for bringing new opportunities, for offering support and for helping me release and heal my past. Fill me with trust as I experience these life changes.”

This week’s angel message is about mothers, children, leading/teaching/learning, divine timing, opportunities and letting go of worries. I just want to say that I am a spiritual person and I find truth in all religions. I never mean to offend or ostracise anyone-I only want to support you and spread love. I honor and respect your faith, religion and/or spirituality. I believe that all faith is sacred and beautiful. In all my readings, I encourage you to take away what resonates with you and to pray to whomever your higher power.
As usual, this is a “general reading” and might not apply to you and your specific situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
I have to say that it is beautiful to see “Mother Mary” come up in this week’s reading as many will be celebrating the birth of Jesus this week. When I was meditating on this reading, I received flashes of the devastating pictures circling about what is happening to the children and people of Aleppo, Syria. If you ever have concerns about children, Mother Mary and Jesus are great divine beings to pray to. I asked them what I could do to help the children in Aleppo and was guided to share a prayer and to do so immediately. Therefore I posted the prayer to Facebook, but am also including it at the end of this reading. I'm asking for your help in coming together in prayer. If there is anything we can do – we can pray. The power of group prayer amplifies the effect of the prayer. Please pray to whomever your higher power.
With the holidays here, it is a time when you will experience heightened sensitivity and emotions. Honor your feelings and your heightened sensitivity. I feel many are grieving the loss of loved ones. You may feel inclined to honor your loved one(s) by dedicating a sacred practice or prayer for them or by setting a place at the table for them. Allow yourself to grieve, cry and let it out. You have every right to feel these deep emotions. Take care of yourself and let others take care of you. Know that you are deserving of love and support, so allow yourself to receive this from others. Nurture yourself by avoiding harsh/negative situations and people. Eat healthy, non-processed foods. Avoid chemicals and drink lots of fresh water. Acknowledge that you may need to spend some extra time alone. Spend some time in nature if you can. Pray to whomever your higher power and your guardian angels for support and comfort.
With the “Mother” card as well as 3 cards that have children in them-I am getting a few messages. Like I mentioned, I received an overwhelming message to take care of “our” children-all the children in the world. I also received a message that if you have a Mother in Heaven-she is with you and watching over you (and your children if you have them.) Another message I received is that if you have a child in Heaven-they are with you and watching over you. I also see that if you have been trying to conceive a child, divine timing is involved and you are being blessed with this divine timing now or very soon. If you are a mother, know that your children look up to you as their leader, teacher and role model. There is also a message to express your gratitude and appreciation for your own mother. If you have had difficult times with your mother in the past, know that she did the very best she could and she loves you dearly.
The Wheel (also known as the Wheel of Fortune in traditional tarot decks) implies divine timing and that the wheel is turning in your favor. Your destiny is calling you. You can expect new opportunities to arise for you-in any area of your life. The wheel asks you to be optimistic, flexible and adaptable to the changes and opportunities presenting to you. Synchronistic events are likely at this time-such as being in the right place at the right time. Situations you might have started to feel hopeless about could take a turn for the better. There could be possible rewards and recognition for your accomplishments. Good news could find you and miracles are possible.
The Knight of Ariel (also known as the Knight of Pentacles in traditional tarot decks) could be referring to a person entering your life, a person already in your life, yourself or advice on how to move forward with your plans. Since this message is for many people-I believe it has many meanings and one of them should apply to you specifically. I will refer to the Knight as “he” but could also be female-it is moreso the energy this card carries. This Knight is the slowest moving Knight in the deck. He is the “slow and steady” Knight that always makes it to his destination. His motto would most likely be-”only fools rush in and I am no fool.” He knows that change doesn’t happen overnight and there is no need to rush or seek instant gratification. He is content with the journey while also focusing on the outcome he seeks. He has a common-sense approach and is practical, logical and methodical. He takes one well-planned step at a time. His slow pace ensures that he will not get burnt out. He is trustworthy, dependable, understanding and kind. The advice here would be to take one step at a time, be proud of each step and soon you will see the fruits of your labor.
We have the “You’re a Leader” and “Classes” cards. This can be interpreted both formally and informally. Perhaps you are enrolled in school or are ready to take some classes. You might also be a teacher or are considering teaching. Consider this card your "green light" to go ahead with the education or teaching you are considering. Informally, consider that we are all students and teachers in relation with others. Many quotes come to mind-”be the change you wish to see,” “lead by example” and “when the student is ready-the teacher will appear” are a few that stand out to me. Questions to consider-How am I teaching others? What am I learning from others? How can I be a role model? What am I teaching my children? What are my children teaching me? When it comes to changes you are desiring-can you be the change and lead by example? If you want better communication with your partner or others-can your communication be more honest and compassionate? If you want others to respect you more-can you show them by respecting and loving yourself? Live a life that makes you proud of yourself. Live in a way where others admire your integrity and strength of character.
There are also some things that are out of our control and for that we need to believe that “God is in Charge.” Do what you feel you can and then surrender to the flow. Have faith that all is happening in divine timing and trust that everything will work out. Release any tension and the need to control. Archangel Michael assures you that your prayers have been heard and are being answered. There is a natural course this situation is taking and you are being asked to give your worries to God and the angels. You are being encouraged to enjoy your life as God is taking care of any apparent problems and a miraculous solution is already in the works. Be grateful for your blessings and those yet to come.
It is also important to be open to receiving the blessings that are coming your way. Know that you deserve peace, happiness, love and support. Don’t block yourself from “receiving” with feelings of guilt or unworthiness. Know that you are worthy and that any perceived mistakes you think you have made have been forgiven. If you believe that someone in your life is not forgiving you-know that they are really only not forgiving themselves. The only thing left to do is to forgive yourself and be open to receiving your blessings.
I wish you all a week of peace and happiness. Happy holidays to all celebrating!
Prayer for Aleppo:
Let us pray that the violence will cease and peace will be restored in Aleppo and throughout Syria. That all those suffering find comfort and healing. That the needs of the millions of Syrians who have been displaced will be adequately met. And that world leaders engaged in peace talks prioritize the needs of the Syrian people and not their own personal agenda. Amen.
Prayer from “God is in Charge”:
“Dear God, please help me to let go of [situation], giving it in faith and trust to your Divine wisdom and infinite love in order to resolve and heal everything and everyone involved.”

This week’s angel message is about healing, releasing negative emotions and fear, moving on, staying optimistic and focusing on what you want. Obstacles are clearing and bliss is coming. This is an appropriate message as we have a full moon December 13th (in the US) and this is the last full moon of the year. We are also ending a “9” year (2+0+1+6=9) and entering a “1” year (2+0+1+7=10=1). Take a quick review of the past 9 years-celebrate all that you have achieved and acknowledge how much you have grown. It’s time to break through self-imposed barriers-to finally let go of negative thought patterns and beliefs that are holding you back. There also might be a need to release some situations and relationships you feel you have outgrown or that are holding you back from growing. Think about what you want to bring with you into the new year and this new 9-year cycle of your life. Start 2017 with a clean slate and a fresh perspective. Consider this a rebirth of you-the authentic, perfectly imperfect beautiful YOU.
As usual this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your specific situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
I’ve been using Spirit Animal cards with my private readings and decided to introduce them into my general blog readings this week. Like guardian angels, we all have spirit animals assigned to us at birth, but we also have spirit animals that come to our aid when needed or to deliver a special message. If you follow me on Facebook, you will notice I am quick to point out the animals that have visited me that I believe have a message for all of us. Pay attention to animals and birds that cross your path-either literally, in dreams or through other means such as social media, movies, billboards, etc. If they catch your attention, they catch it for a reason. You can look up what the symbolism is online or interpret your own meaning. I meant to draw just one spirit animal card but two came flying out and appropriately they both have wings! With both birds-there is a message to detach and rise above your situation to gain a higher perspective. In other words, remove yourself from your current situation as if you were hearing about your situation happening to someone else. What advice or guidance would you give that person? Another message from both birds is to conserve your energy and apply your focus to what is truly important. Consider where you are wasting your energy. Lastly, it's time to spread your wings and take a leap of faith.
Hawk’s message is to not get caught up in details or in emotions that cause you to lose your focus. Make sure to step back, detach and gain a greater perspective. Hawk’s message is to prioritize, eliminate distractions and focus on your goal. Another message is that you cannot change others, you can only change yourself and accept people as they are. This might mean that you choose to spend less time with those that weigh you down, don’t support you or drain you of your precious energy. It is important to set boundaries with others and to practice self care. Lastly, hawk can be a message that you will be receiving an important message-the message might be from an actual person or from Spirit.
Eagle’s message is about trusting in Spirit-which includes your higher self (your soul). Pay close attention to the messages you receive through your thoughts, dreams and intuition. Discern between messages from your higher self and your ego. Your higher self will give you straight-forward, positive and encouraging support. Your ego tends to be fear-based, negative and discouraging. This could be a time of spiritual awakening, one where you experience a greater connection with Spirit. You can expect creative inspiration from Spirit. Listen to the divine messages you receive and follow these messages to go with the natural flow of life. Eagle’s message is to take advantage of the opportunity you are considering. This is a time of new beginnings after a period of strife, in which you gained strength and resilience. Eagle teaches us to live a life according to the spiritual laws. Lastly, the message from eagle is that you reap what you sow. Whatever you put out, positive or negative, will return to you in some form.
It is important to take time to introspect, pause, reflect and heal. With the light of a full moon (along with the Light card) things that are hidden in the shadows are illuminated. The full moon reveals hidden truths, emotions that are suppressed and fears that are hiding in our subconscious. Shine a light on those areas-which will lead to self-awareness and ultimately self-acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you can stand in your true authentic self. It’s time to shed the “masks” you might be wearing and be your authentic self at all times. How are you holding yourself back? Are you deceiving yourself or lying to yourself? Face your fears and honor your true feelings. Take inventory of your feelings, as they are an accurate measure of what is working and what is not working for you. What brings you pain? Resentment? Anger? Joy? Peace? Your feelings are key indicators of what needs to stay and what needs to go.
We have 2 cards indicating that it is important that you release any negative emotions regarding members of your family. Consider “family” from a broader perspective- birth family, your close friends, your significant other, your children, your extended family, your in-laws, etc. When you hold onto negative emotions, you are really hurting yourself. Face old lingering feelings so that they can be released and cleared. Forgive others for yourself and know that forgiveness does not always mean reconciliation. There are lessons learned when we are hurt. Take the lessons you have learned and leave the negative emotions behind. You might choose to spend less energy valuing that person’s opinion or spend less time with that person. You might choose to let the hurt go and start your relationship off on a clean slate with no resentment. Forgive and heal-release the emotional baggage that is attached.
The “Blocks Lifted” card and the “Light” card bring very positive messages. You will find that previous obstacles that have been standing in your way are being lifted. You are moving out of rough waters into calmer waters. Examples of blocks lifted that you can expect-payments arrive on time, decisions will be made in your favor, your work will receive the respect and attention it deserves, etc. Doesn’t that sound good? Stay optimistic and filled with faith knowing that the hard times you have experienced this past year are ending and you are moving into the light. Enjoy and appreciate the small successes and recognize that they add up to big ones. Stay centered in gratitude, as that will bring more positive opportunities your way. Prosperity, bliss, pleasure, happiness, contentment, growth, success and joy are all here for you now. Use the energy of positive thinking to light the path before you and you will attract exactly what you are emanating. Now is your moment to shine!
Make sure to celebrate yourself and be grateful for all your blessings and those yet to come. Stay positive! Wishing you a week of joy, optimism and self-love.
Surrender Fear message:
-Let go of the fearful stories you are telling yourself. Stay in the moment. Focus on solutions and celebrate every baby step forward.
Affirmation for releasing anger toward family members:
-Today I will accept the potent emotions I may feel toward members of my family and I will be grateful for the lessons they are teaching me. I accept the golden light of healing that’s shining on all of us.
Affirmation for rescuing myself:
-Today I will not wait for someone to come to my aid. I am not helpless. Although help may come, I am my own rescuer. My relationships will dramatically improve when I stop rescuing others and stop expecting others to rescue me.
-Thank you Archangel Michael for supporting, guiding and protecting me as I listen to and act upon my feelings. Help me understand and express my emotions with love.

This week’s angel message is about self-empowerment, choices, assertiveness, communication and action. There are choices, decisions and action you need to take to obtain the life that you want. Is there an area (situation or relationship) of your life where you feel like a victim of circumstance? Where you feel helpless, hopeless and powerless? What can you do to change that? This week’s message encourages empowering yourself to take positive action in pursuit of the life you want. I keep hearing “Ready, Set, Action” and the busy animals (beaver, squirrel, chipmunk) I saw on my nature hike today indicate that it is time to take action. Just look at the horses galloping on the Action card.
As usual, this is a “general reading that might not apply to you and your current situation. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
Are you feeling restricted and/or challenged with a situation or relationship? Can you change your perspective and view this restriction or challenge as an opportunity for positive change? Choose to empower yourself by asking what opportunity and what blessing is in this situation or relationship. Is this a blessing that is just disguised as a challenge? There are treasures and pearls of wisdom that we take away from everything that challenges us. See this situation or relationship as an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth.
This week’s message asks you to take a look at where you are placing your happiness and peace. Are you placing your happiness and peace outside of yourself? Do you tell yourself... “I can’t wait for [fill in the blank]” or “if [fill in the blank] happens I will be happy” or “ if [fill in the blank] changes I will be happy.” Look at how you can be happy and find peace-can you find it right now in your present moment? Is there something that you can do to bring that happiness and peace to you?
Review your “If/Wish list. “If I [fill in the blank] I will be happy.” Maybe it’s...get a raise, get that promotion, get a new job, get appreciation from my partner, get an apology from that person who hurt me, win the lottery, get more customers, find a girlfriend/boyfriend, etc. Identify your ifs/wishes and then take the action you can to bring it to reality. You have the skills and resources you need to take positive action. You are already at the “Ready, Set” phase and now need to choose your actions. This is not a time to procrastinate, but to be focused and purposeful in your actions toward your desired goals. It is also important to find your peace and happiness in the moment-the present-the now.
Seriously ask yourself what you want and review your options. Analyze and assess your options/choices and how each might affect your outcome. By making smart and carefully considered decisions you will no longer be a victim of circumstance but have the power and ability to direct the outcome. Once you’ve considered your options, make a decision to take action. If you want a raise or a promotion, then ask for it. If you want a new job, apply. If you want a girlfriend/boyfriend, then get out there and look or ask the person you are interested in out on a date. If you want more customers, advertise and ask your current customers for reviews and referrals. If you want to win the lottery, buy a ticket. If you want more appreciation from your partner, tell them you need that. If you want an apology, you will need to try to forgive the other person for your own sake without an apology (because this is about what you yourself can do).
If you are looking for change in a relationship, what can you do to change the situation? It is important to take responsibility for your feelings and your actions. Speak from your heart and do not blame others. Surrender any defensiveness, own your feelings and listen to the other person’s perspective with an open mind and open heart. Share your goals, find mutual goals and offer to be a team player by suggesting what you can do to achieve this goal. Aim for a win/win situation-discuss your dreams, desires and goals and let the other person decide how they can contribute. Empower all persons involved to reach a solution. Make sure to acknowledge the other person's strengths and what you are grateful for in the relationship, not just what you don’t like. If the other person is not willing to acknowledge the lack of harmony or your honest feelings, if they are not willing to compromise or take action towards your shared goal, then you have another choice to make.
It’s important to be assertive and ask for what you want. The more you practice being assertive and asking for what you want, the easier it gets. Asking for what you want also includes asking your angels and the Archangels for guidance and support. You can also ask for angelic support in communicating your needs with others. It’s also important to surrender your desire to control people or expect others to change. You can’t control others but you can control how you communicate with others and how you react to others. If you come from a loving, nonjudgmental place the other person will most likely be willing to work with you. If you choose to ask for what you want and your request is denied then you have another choice in how you react and in where you go from there. Keep asking yourself what you can do to change the situation. Even by choosing to do nothing, you are making a choice. Stay empowered knowing you always have choices. If there is nothing you can do...can you accept it, can you let it go? Maybe you choose to end this relationship? Maybe you have to choose to change your perspective, accepting what you have as what you need and being grateful for it? What you choose to do is your responsibility.
This is a time of new beginnings, prosperity, abundance and good fortune. It’s a time of manifesting your dreams and desires into reality. You are able to take control of your destiny and achieve what you desire. Your connection to divine guidance is strong right now. The orbs of light in the Door to Spirit card represent the angels and guides that are available and surrounding you, ready to assist you if you ask for what you need. After you ask for angelic/spirit help listen to your intuition, keep your eyes and ears open to signs/messages and pay attention to your dreams as these are all ways the spirit world can communicate with you.
Surrender Your Desire to Control People-message:
-Being over-controlling can sabotage relationships. To more effectively achieve your goals, back off, regroup and give the situation some breathing room.
-Defensiveness is a sign of weakness. To communicate in a more empowered way, stay centered and hear someone out. Then offer a clear, non-defensive response.
-I am responsible for my own life. I take action toward my goals and my own happiness every day.
-I relax and connect with my spirit’s wisdom and power. I live in the peace that my spirit brings and know the the world of Spirit supports me.
-Archangel Michael, thank you for letting me lean on your strength and for reminding me of my personal power. Please guide me to manifest and heal according to Divine will, creating peace and blessings for everyone involved.

My love readings might appear random but they are actually “divinely guided.” I just go with the flow until I get the spiritual nudge to post a love reading. Sorry that the couples reading was posted first, but it made me optimistic to think that my last singles reading got less views than the couples because some of the singles have coupled up with someone. I know my past singles readings looked like love was around the corner and again it appears this way. YAY!
As usual this is a “general reading” for singles that are looking for love. This reading might not apply to you and your specific situation, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
We have two “soulmate” cards in this reading. The “Coming Together” card is also known as the “2 of Cups” in most tarot decks and is referred to as the “soulmate” card. It is so interesting how I chose this deck and this card is called “Coming Together” and then falls in the advice position-like come together people! Do you already know your soulmate? Seriously, think about it for a second-who comes to your mind first? Another card in the advice position is “Move,” encouraging you to take action and make your move. Guy or gal, this is not the time to follow society traditions of courting-break those outdated rules. If you have somebody in mind-make your move. This is a connection of mind, body and spirit-a natural friendship. Maybe you're just friends right now but this could change to a romantic relationship. Who doesn’t want to marry their best friend? This soulmate could also be someone you had a falling out with in the past since the “Heal” card is under the "Coming Together" card and again in the advice position. Is it time to reach out and make amends with that person? Is forgiveness and a fresh start needed? Again, I see that the feelings are mutual-does this give you the courage to go for it? If you need more time to heal yourself-please look to the chakra affirmations and energizing exercises I will list at the end of this reading. If you are suffering from a health impairment, please seek the help of a health care professional.
Here goes my song messages-John Mayer’s “Say” is playing on Pandora right now. I mean seriously?!? Say what you need to say! I love the constant messages delivered by the Universe/Divine/God-whomever you believe is your higher power.
Take a few minutes to center yourself, take some deep breaths, close your eyes and ask who is your soulmate. Does a face or name appear? If not, then know that this soulmate is around the corner and you are soon to meet. Again, this doesn’t mean that the person will fall into your lap-you will have to get out there and increase your chances of meeting. Seek activities that bring you joy, explore your passions and opportunities to indulge in these activities-a cooking class, dancing, a meetup group, etc. Anything that stirs your heart with joy will help ignite your passions. Engaging in these social activities brings great opportunity to meet a wonderful partner with shared passions. How amazing to meet someone who has similar passions, interests and hobbies as you. Most likely, you and your soulmate will just click and enjoy conversations on many topics. You will also have some great chemistry with the “Passion” card-just take a look at the steamy picture on the “Passion” card! You should be able to recognize your soulmate upon first meeting-as there will be a sense of familiarity and comfort you feel with them-like you have known them before.
I am seeing and feeling a few potential obstacles to a love relationship for you at this time. Since this reading is for many people-maybe only one or a few will apply to you, but you will know which ones apply to your situation. First, I feel frustration and restriction-like you are stuck or being held back. It appears that you know who you want to pursue a relationship with but some situation or possibly another person is creating a block. Maybe you have an overbearing friend or relative that thinks they know what is best for you and are dissuading you from pursuing the person you are interested in. Seriously, if you are interested in this person, don’t let another person’s opinions stop you. Only you know what is in your heart and sometimes we can only rely on our intuition. You don’t have to explain your choices to anyone. I am not sure what the situation would be...possibly you are in a transition of some sort. I also feel impatience which could apply to these mentioned restrictions. If you are impatiently waiting for someone you are interested in to make the first move, I encourage YOU to make the first move...as long as that person is single! (I don’t encourage breaking up any relationships.) This is a time for you to let your heart take the lead. I see your mind is awaiting guidance from your heart. Let your mind have a conversation with your heart.
I also see that you might be emotionally detached right now, maybe longing for someone but still healing from some past heartache. It appears sadness could be preventing you from moving forward into more satisfying loving relationships. Past sorrows cause you to withdraw from your emotions and other people as a way of preventing further pain. Take the time you need to heal from this heartache and open up when you are ready. Just don’t stay closed off and shut down longer than you need to heal as this will prevent energy flow which will interfere with the ability of the Universe to fulfill your dreams. When your energy is open and flowing freely, you naturally attract what you are seeking.
Another challenge at this time is fear. Take some time to introspect and figure out what you are fearing...rejection? Intimacy? If you are reading this...then you are interested in finding love, right? Question and challenge your fears and find that you have the power and courage to conquer them, as they are usually irrational. If you are already interested in somebody than you have to let them know. If your feelings are not reciprocated, then you can move on without the “what ifs” and stop crushing on them...moving you towards that soulmate you are supposed to be with. Other challenges (but stemming from fear) could be insecurity, lack of confidence, guilt/shame, control issues-too controlling or feeling helpless, etc. You will have to do some introspection and inner work. Chakra healing-such as affirmations, visualizations, diet or actual energy healing will also help.
If you need time to heal from a broken-heart, that is wise and loving. Take the time you need to heal yourself-you should only pursue a relationship when you are healed, stable and happy. A part of healing will also include releasing resentment and blame, as well as forgiving yourself and others. Feeling at peace and hopeful for the future will invite new relationships into your life.
If you don’t need healing then your advice is to conquer your fears and insecurities, take action, explore your passions and communicate. Take a chance on love-pursue that love interest or get out there and meet people. Life is for living and that includes taking risks to achieve your goals. Let yourself be vulnerable, risk rejection and gain strength/courage by pursuing your dreams. I am assuming that your goals and dreams include love and being in a relationship. Value yourself, know that you are worthy of achieving your dreams and are worthy of loving, respectful relationships.
You also might have a blocked root and/or solar plexus chakra (energy center). Your root chakra is your first chakra and is located at the base of your spine-it is red in color. Your root chakra is your foundation, your security, safety and survival center. A blocked root chakra can cause many issues including lower back pain, depression, fear and codependency. Any physical activity helps to activate and strengthen this chakra-exercise, stretching, dancing, etc. Also any activity involving nature. It is also helpful to eat red fruits and vegetables. You can also try a visualization exercise where you meditate and visualize a radiating red light at the base of your spine extending down your legs and into the ground. There are several meditations and visualizations on the web-just Google Root Chakra meditation/activation/visualizations. Affirmations are helpful too and I will list some below.
Your solar plexus chakra is your third chakra located at your navel-it is yellow in color. Your solar plexus chakra is your energy center responsible for your confidence, willpower, sense of self and achieving goals. A blocked solar plexus chakra can cause many issues including fear, guilt/shame, poor boundaries and control issues. Eating yellow fruits and vegetables can strengthen this chakra. You could also try this breathing/visualization exercise-Close your eyes and as you inhale deeply through your nose, breathe in the color yellow. See it coming from a glowing, brilliant sun and entering your solar plexus. Exhale through your mouth all the energies that don’t serve you. Believe that you can have the relationships you desire and you will! Again, there are many variations of meditations and visualization on the web-just Google Solar Plexus meditation/activation/visualizations. I will also list solar plexus affirmations below.
