This week’s angel message focuses on partnerships, teamwork, balance, planning and manifesting your desires. Again this week, it appears that love is in the air...or maybe it is always in the air and we just need to acknowledge it. 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 see that many of you are teaming up with a partner or group of people. This could be personally or professionally, but together you have a life purpose to fulfill. This might be a person(s) in your life or soon to be. The “Marriage” card refers to either a present or future marriage with a spiritual destiny. A soulmate marital partner is currently in your life or soon will be appearing. Know that this is a partnership that was pre-destined and is blessed by the angels. This partnership has a divine life purpose. Your life purpose could include raising children, a business arrangement, volunteering and/or fighting for a cause. For “Caring Connections” this could be a romantic relationship, but if so there is also a higher purpose. You could be meeting/aligning with this partner or team (“Community” card) in the very near future or you are already involved in this partnership. This is a partnership where the Heavens have conspired to bring you together. This is a relationship where people are aligned-mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You share common interests and passion. You nurture and support each other to grow and prosper. These cards also suggest a celebration or party of some sort.
It is very important that you find balance between your career and home life. Just reading this, you immediately know the imbalance. Most likely, you are spending too much time working or providing for others needs. Make time daily to incorporate activities that bring you joy and happiness-even just 30 minutes daily. This might mean that you have to establish healthy boundaries and say no to unrealistic demands upon your time. You will most likely have to delegate work to others-think teamwork. It is important to surrender the “superhero” cape you are wearing-it will be okay. Let go of the need to control and ask for help where you need it. Make balance a top priority and you will see the benefits of improved mood, energy, morale and effectiveness. It is human to have fun and play a little. It is actually crucial to our well-being.
It is time to address long-term goals and the short-term goals that will lead to your long-term goals. Again, this most likely will involve teamwork-either personally or professionally. There are shared goals you have with your partnerships and now is the time to address how you can accomplish your goals as a team. Communicate your intentions clearly and work to divide the responsibilities. Discuss the shared goal(s) and the benefits of teamwork-like I mentioned previously-improved mood, energy, morale and effectiveness. Aim for success and shared responsibility to get there.
If there is any part of your desires that you don’t think you can tackle independently or communicate for teamwork-ask your spirit guides and angels for assistance and believe that they are on top of it. Your guides and angels know the importance of balance and peace-you can be certain they will assist you and you can leave the details up to them. Their help may come in the form of intuition, thoughts, ideas, dreams, beneficial alliances entering your life, etc., but it will be up to you to follow through with their gentle guidance and/or accept this support. With manifesting-picture your desired result as if it were already true and reality. Have unwavering faith and belief that this will happen. Things will fall into place like magic-miracles happen everyday-just think of how amazing life is-that we are able to conceive a child or biologically function on a daily basis-our existence in itself is a miracle.
Cheers to you and your destiny, go team!
PS. I will be transitioning to bi-weekly or monthly readings. Like mentioned in this reading, I need to prioritize my responsibilities. Thank you for understanding!
Prayer for “This Is Your Life’s Purpose:”
“Archangel Michael, you know the details of my Divine life purpose and I ask you to help me be aligned with my goals. Please clearly guide my actions so that I’m taking the best steps to fully manifest my wonderful and meaningful career.”
-I open my life to the wonderful people around me. I am making strong and beneficial connections in both my personal and professional life.
-I open my heart and life to truly caring connections. The ideal friend and partner is coming to me now.
-I plan the necessary steps to achieve my goals and I am willing to take action in that direction. I am flexible, persistent and prepared.

This week’s angel message focuses on love, trust, enthusiasm and communication. It looks like the love we saw in the “2017-first quarter reading” is finding us now. This reading radiates LOVE. Know that you are being divinely guided in all matters of the heart-trust your inner guidance. 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.
I see this week as a time of moving forward with your plans and desires. Mercury is finally out of retrograde this week-opening up the lines of communication. With the solar plexus chakra, I am seeing great enthusiasm and confidence. With the throat chakra, I am seeing this is a great time for self expression, speaking your truth and communicating your feelings. This is also a good time to journal your thoughts and feelings. I also see that you are receiving divine guidance-perhaps in regards to your love life, family or other relationships.
Singles-I’m seeing a romantic relationship coming for you this week. It appears that this might be a relationship that will lead to a commitment. I see that you are being divinely guided and possibly right to this relationship. If there is someone that you have been thinking about, the angels assure you that this person is trustworthy. Be your true, authentic self and you can trust that they will do the same. You might already know this person and there might have been hurts exchanged in the past. With the “Let the Past Go” card I am seeing that forgiveness is needed in order to start anew. If you are looking for a relationship-get out there or reach out to that special someone that has been on your mind.
Following the signs...Typically, I will pull the weekly cards out the night before I post the reading. This way, I allow any additional messages to flow in. I laid out the cards last night and then went on Netflix. A “top pick” recommendation for me was Bridget Jones’s Diary-I’ve seen it before but decided to watch it again. I didn’t realize until nearly the end of the movie that this might be correlating to the weekly angel reading. We have “love” and “journaling” in the reading and here is a movie about love and a diary. So I thought of some messages that could apply. In the movie, her beloved buys her a new journal and suggests a new beginning since they didn’t get off on the right foot the first time around. So I see that this could indicate someone from your past returning for reconciliation and a “re-do.” Or someone new entering for a new beginning in love. The movie’s soundtrack goes from “All by Myself” to “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” You could have somebody who is determined and feels that nothing will stop them from winning your love or maybe you feel this way about someone. Lastly, (go ahead and call me an enthusiastic dreamer) you might have a love story that is worthy of publication and the big screen. Doesn’t everyone love a good love story?
Couples-I see that there is a rekindling of love in your relationship or taking your relationship to the next level of commitment. I don’t mean to spoil any surprises-but a proposal could be coming. I see that the focus is going to be on your relationship and/or family this week and you might be talking about having a baby. Or maybe you will be welcoming a new pet into your home. Whatever is happening for you-your home and your relationship is filled with love right now. You are being encouraged to “make a commitment” to yourself and your relationship. You can trust your partner and you should also trust yourself and your inner divine guidance. If there have been “mistakes” and hurts in the past, the angels are encouraging you to forgive yourself and your partner so that you can start a new chapter together.
With the “Family” card-This card is about “all things family.” It is about acknowledging where you came from-the culture, traditions and beliefs that you have inherited from your family. It is time to take a look at which beliefs are positively serving you and which are not. It is time to consider which family traditions you want to carry forward. You may wish to talk to your elders to share stories and wisdom from their path. You might decide to research your family tree or simply come together with those you love for the sake of being together. Seek to recognize and appreciate each individual (including yourself) as a vital spoke in the greater family wheel. Within the circle of family-we discover our belonging and the freedom to truly be ourselves.
With the “Love” card-this also focuses on self-love. Learn to love yourself for all of your strengths, flaws and emotions...in your light and your shadow. Love yourself just for being you. Love yourself enough to care about what you eat, who you spend time with, how you look and how you feel each day. It is through true love of Self that you open the pathway to experience love on all levels in your life. By awakening true self-love, you ignite your ability to give and receive true love in your world. Live in love.
Affirmation for Caring Connections:
-I open my heart and life to truly caring connections. The ideal friend and partner is coming to me now.
Affirmation for Solar Plexus Chakra:
-My solar plexus chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state. I radiate a bright and vibrant life-force energy. I feel excitement for all that I do.
Affirmation for Throat Chakra:
-My throat chakra is open to its perfect, healthy state, spinning with the beautiful energy of freedom and self-empowerment. I am free to express myself in every way.
Prayer for “Make A Commitment:”
“Archangel Michael, as the angel of courage and confidence, I call upon you to lend me your strength. Allow me to commit to myself, my life and my Divine purpose. Please clearly guide me so I can fully open my heart to every experience.”
Prayer for “The Person You’re Asking About Is Trustworthy:”
“Archangel Michael, thank you for helping me have faith so I can open my heart wider in my relationships. I am grateful for your protection, ensuring that only trustworthy people are in my life.”

This reading covers the first quarter of 2017-January, February and March. This message radiates positivity-new beginnings, new/renewed love, joy and accomplishments. Get out your star-studded sunglasses because this quarter is a bright one! Keep in mind that time is a concept that was invented by humans, therefore, the timing may vary and spread into the next quarter. The Divine has no concept of time-it seems to be more about where we are at in our journey and somehow everything happens when it is supposed to.
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.
With New Year’s resolutions made, it’s appropriate that we get the “Why?” card. This card asks you to look at your motives. There is great power in understanding what drives you and the reason behind your choices and actions. Question your motives without judgment-this isn’t about getting critical, it is about understanding yourself. An example of “losing weight” comes to mind. What are the reasons you want to lose weight? Is it for health, more energy, confidence, attraction, a trip, etc. You can fine tune your goals when you know the intentions for setting them. You might find some hidden motives. You might find that you need to adjust your goals, add mini-goals or wipe out some goals. An example of this-say you want to lose weight before you start dating….what does that tell you about the way you see yourself? You might find that in addition to losing weight-you will work on confidence, focusing on your strengths and loving yourself for who you are. Ask yourself “Why?” with compassion-question your feelings, question your behavior, question your thought patterns as a way to really get to the bottom of how you see/treat yourself and others. Maybe you will find that you need to take it easy on yourself or on others. Maybe you will find that you need to have more love and compassion for yourself and others.
Life is education-we never stop learning and growing. See every situation and every person in your life as an opportunity to learn more about yourself, about others and about life in general. We are constantly presented with situations that enable us to develop inner wisdom and a higher level of understanding. Respect and honor your past/current situations and those around you by acknowledging how you have learned and grown because of them.
New life is upon you-this is a very fortunate and blessed time. All is well in your world and you will have the energy you need to feel renewed. New inspirations, new creativity and new opportunities are here. Share your excitement, passion and joy with others. You will have reasons to be joyful and it is important to allow yourself to feel and express joy. Joy springs from appreciating the gifts within each moment. Take a moment to count your blessings-celebrate them and express your gratitude to the people in your life that bring you joy.
The heart chakra and root chakra are highlighted this quarter. The heart chakra is related to unconditional love, compassion, harmony, relationships and healing. By giving and receiving love, practicing self love and practicing forgiveness-you will allow energy to flow freely in this chakra. The root chakra is related to survival, the physical body, financial security, safety and shelter. You help energy to flow freely in this chakra by taking care of your body with healthy eating, exercise and rest. Yoga and dancing are also very beneficial to the root chakra.
I am seeing love, love, LOVE! There are so many cards indicating new love entering your life this quarter. This could be new loving friendships, new romantic relationships, renewed love with significant others and/or renewed love with your family and friends. You are being blessed with love-both you and your relationships will thrive with this energy. Be open to giving and receiving love, know that you deserve it. Be appreciate and grateful for your loved ones.
I also see transition and change in regards to your financial security and home. You could be moving to a new home or remodeling/updating your current home. You could also be welcoming a new person into your home-maybe taking your relationship to the next level or welcoming a baby. This could also indicate getting pregnant. I see that you might be getting a new job, a promotion or expanding your business-whatever it is, I see an improvement in your finances and more joy as well.
It is important to take time to honor and acknowledge who you are and what you have accomplished. We tend to spend too much energy and time on negative emotions or what we have not done. Be mindful of how your past choices of positive action, compassion and understanding have made a better life for yourself and others. It’s also important to look around and acknowledge others’ accomplishments.
I see you have been giving a lot of yourself lately to those around you and it is important to balance giving with receiving. This keeps your energy, mood and motivation at a consistent, high level. Reward yourself for all your hard work. Invest in yourself and make time for self-care. Do something special for yourself-buy something you desire, take a day off of work, take a trip, get a massage, etc. Your inner child blooms with more joy when you give yourself loving attention. Appreciate all that you have done and allow yourself to receive love, gratitude, compliments, etc from those around you.
A Blessed Time: The path is clear and all obstacles have vanished. Your time of waiting is over, so proceed with confidence. The challenges you have faced were essential, for there is a perfect time for everything. Now is your perfect time to be blessed by the universe.
A Blessing from the Beloved: Love unfolds your wings and you fly high above the earth into the realm of heaven. Blessed by the light of her beautiful soul, you enter the emerald heart of the Divine Mother which is full of eternal blessings. The world is your playground waiting to be explored, beloved.

This week’s angel message focuses on change, learning/growing, progress and healing. I have to be honest, I pulled two cards that made me say “Really Angels-is this how we are starting the New Year? Where’s the optimism and love?” I received the message that life can be challenging, but it is through those challenges that we find our strength. We are here for personal and spiritual growth. If we didn’t know pain and struggle-we wouldn’t know joy and peace. So here we go...and yes there is reason to stay optimistic!
As usual, this is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your specific situation. It’s fair to say that with an increase in readers (thank you, I am humbled and grateful)-comes an increase in messages-so there may only be bits and pieces of the reading that resonate with you, if any. With that being said, I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul.
With the “Emotional Loss” it appears that some are grieving the loss of someone or something of significant value. If you are grieving the death of a loved one-I am so very sorry for your loss. I cannot tell you that your grief will ever subside. I can only send you my love and support. I pray that you find the comfort and peace you need. I pray that light shines through the darkness you are feeling and that the light grows and nurtures you daily. I hope that you are able to find the nurturing support you need from others-family, friends, a support group. If you are struggling with grief and need to talk-I can listen very well. I offer you a listening ear-message me and we will arrange that talk. Seriously-my email is email@example.com. I hope this will offer a little comfort-with the “Guarded and Protected” card from Archangel Michael-one of the interpretations is that “your loved ones are safe with the angels in Heaven.”
A message to all-if you know of anyone that is grieving in any way-reach out to them. Offer love and support. Don't worry about you and if you have the strength and knowledge to support them-you have love in your heart and that is all that you need. Reach out!
Others may be grieving the loss of a relationship-friend or romantic, a job, or any other painful loss resulting in grief, devastation and sadness. Honor your feelings, take as long as you need to grieve and process these emotions. Reach out for support-friends, family, support groups, online groups, etc. Please know that you will get through this and you will be stronger and wiser because of it. I am not saying to get over it or let it go-but instead to honor your feelings, give yourself time and love and know that something good will come out of this. As one door closes-another door opens. From my personal experience I can say that believing there was a blessing through the absolute heartbreak I was going through was one of the only things that kept me going. And yes, I found that blessing-many blessings. You will too-in time.
With the “Conflict and Defeat” card, I see there is an unhealthy, imbalanced or unjust situation/circumstance/relationship you need to address. I was going to point out that this could be just internal, but I received the message that this is indeed external-of course whatever is external is also internal. I also get the message to “choose your battles wisely.” Knowing when you need to take a stand and when you should surrender or walk away is crucial. I also get the message that “you will know what to do.” You might be overly emotional about the situation at the moment and might require time to calm yourself and emotionally detach from the situation to take an objective look before proceeding. Acknowledge your feelings. Be sensitive to your feelings, as well as the feelings of those involved. How you handle this situation is critical to your well-being. Don’t assign blame, become deceitful or set out to get revenge-this results in negative energy becoming a part of you (think karma). Be honest, gentle and loving in your approach. It is possible to be assertive and loving at the same time. Make sure to ask yourself-is this a time to take a stand or a time to surrender and/or walk away? Is this a time to be assertive and communicate your feelings and expectations? Or is this a time when you accept the situation for what it is?
With the “Moon Goddess” card I see this as not only learning about how the lunar cycles affect you, but also how the universal energies and planets affect you. With Mercury in Retrograde from December 19-January 8, there is a universal energy of reminiscing, looking at the past, reconnecting with people of the past, grieving the people that are no longer in our lives, etc. This can also be a time when electronics and technology don’t really work the way we want them to. With the full moon approaching on January 12, take notice of how this affects you. When the moon is full-it is directly opposite the sun. This is a time when you will find that imbalances (both internal and external) are highlighted for you to examine. Your intuition and instinct tend to be stronger around the full moon. Another interesting note about how astrology influences us and these readings-the full moon on January 12 will be in Cancer and will be positioned between “The Twins.” Yes, the moon will be between Castor and Pollux-the constellation twins for the zodiac sign of Gemini. We are talking conflict, war and brothers fighting over the same woman...it should be an interesting full moon. Again, know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Assert yourself or surrender? Share your feelings and try to compromise? You have free will and the choice is yours. You will know what to do and if you don’t, ask your guardian angel or Archangel Uriel to give you signs, insight and guidance.
It is so important for you to acknowledge the progress you have made-yes you have! It is not about perfection, it is about progress. Can you take a moment to look at how far you have come, how much you have grown and all that you have learned? 2016 was a hell of a year! You are making progress and it is important to take a moment to acknowledge your achievements. Give yourself a pat on the back. Don’t put your energy into any lapses you have made-guilt and regret never helped anyone. Instead put your energy into how much you have grown and what you have achieved. Keep going and make sure to acknowledge your hard work and successes along the way.
With “Energy Healing” I am getting the message that many of you have a life purpose which involves energy healing (Reiki, Healing Touch, Qi Gong, Pranic Healing, etc.). This card could indicate that it is time to study one of these energy healing modalities-read a book, enroll in a course, etc. It also means that your intentions, thoughts and prayers have healing abilities-pray to send love to any situation or person who needs it. This card could also indicate that a situation that you are concerned about is “healing” so continue to have faith in a positive outcome.
With “Guarded and Protected” Archangel Michael is assuring you that you and your loved ones are protected through your current situation and any major life changes you are experiencing. You are encouraged to be true to yourself and others-honoring your feelings. Know that you, your home and your children are protected. This card also means that your loved ones in Heaven are being watched over by angels. You can always ask Archangel Michael for assistance if you haven’t done so already. He is one of the most powerful Archangels and sends me many messages of reassurance that he’s “got my back.”
Sending you love and healing through life’s challenges and changes. Know that you are on the right path and keep up the good work. And again, if you need support-I can provide a listening ear. Contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer for “Guarded and Protected”:
“Archangel Michael, thank you for protecting my loved ones and me, ensuring that we are safe and that all of our needs are met. I now accept your help gratefully and gracefully, knowing that it is right for me and all others to accept heavenly assistance.”

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.
**A disclaimer-this advice does not replace or should not be used as an alternative to health care.

I want to wish you strength, courage and faith. Know that you are worthy of great love! Go get that soulmate!

My love readings are random or rather “divinely guided” because I go with the flow and the Divine lets me know when it is needed. The urge came on strong today and the message rang through so clear to me. I keep hearing this little mantra-Live and Learn, Love and Learn...Learn in Love!
This reading is for couples who are either dating, married or in a long-term committed relationship. This is a “general reading” that might not apply to you and your specific situation. Again, it seems pretty specific, but I hope you are able to take away something that resonates with your heart and soul. Also, I used a different layout for the reading so I was able to get a little peek into both partners’ views. I know I have been on both sides of this situation in relationships and I know you probably have too. Now I can share an outside perspective from a place of love, compassion and non-judgement.
It appears that both partners have taken some time away from “the relationship” to do some soul-searching and inner work. This doesn’t mean that you have separated but maybe just took some emotional/mental distance to sort some stuff out. It seems that YOU have initiated the soul-searching and your partner naturally went with the flow. They also see that you have gained some independence in the process. It appears that at one point there might have been a co-dependency (maybe the intoxication of new love or some other dependency like finances, etc) from both sides in the relationship-but it is evolving and growing-allowing for individual independence and leading to interdependence. This is a great thing.
With the soul-searching you have been doing, you have really been receiving some divine guidance through your intuition. Keep listening to your heart! Let your mind listen to your heart-it is wise and loving-it knows what is best for you and your relationship. In fact, I hate to say it but you are a wise one-I hate to say this because it does not imply that your partner isn’t. Really you have been listening to your soul and have gained some much needed knowledge and insight into what you need. This is beautiful. I also see that you are the one in control at the present time-now don’t get all power hungry and greedy with that. You are the manifester-the magician-with all the resources and knowledge you need to direct where this relationship goes. That is why it is so crucial to keep having heart-mind communication and assessing your thoughts. Your thoughts WILL create your reality, so make sure you are choosing your thoughts and not letting them run rampant off your subconscious fears, doubts and defenses. Stay mindful of your ever-running thoughts and mindset and direct them appropriately. Focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want.
I also see that you have become a little stubborn and a little ungrateful...I say “little” because I don’t want to offend you-know that I am not judging-I have been there and have empathy. There is an opportunity for teamwork here and an improvement in your relationship-so see this as an opportunity, even a blessing. Discomfort happens and chaos happens as a precursor to much needed change! You might be brewing up a battle (big or small) but I caution you to hold your battle horses! I'm seeing frustration and boredom but can you take a step back to see how you put yourself there? Remove your partner from the equation for a second. What have you done to get here? What's your responsibility? Did you set up secret expectations? You might be so upset with your partner for not giving you what you need or want...but seriously do they know, do you know and if so have you communicated that to them?
You have spent some time figuring out what is important to you and what you want-so communicate that with them. If you still don’t know, take that time to introspect and figure it out. Then keep doing it as we are always growing and our wants/needs are ever-changing. You need to know what you want and ask for it. Don’t fail the student who doesn’t have the textbook or know what the test is even on. Placing expectations on somebody without letting them know the expectations or giving them a guidebook is setting them, you and your relationship up for failure. Apologize to them for the lack of communication and let them know you are committing to communication for the sake of your relationship moving forward! It's an illusion that the grass is always greener on the other side. Your grass is green but you need to nurture it-a little TLC!
Your partner is so open and receptive to finding harmony and balance within the relationship right now...do you see that? They see you taking your time to introspect and they have taken their time to introspect as a result. It seems they are willing to do what is necessary to have harmony, stability and happiness for the both of you in this relationship. That makes me so happy to see! They are open to learning about your newfound revelations, your wants and needs. They are willing to listen and take responsibility for their end of the relationship. They just want to “simply love” and are willing to take a leap of faith with you-a fresh start-but again the ball appears to be in your court. Do you see that you have the ability to make your dreams come true in this relationship? You will need to give it a chance and communicate your feelings, your revelations, your needs and wants. If you need more time to figure these out-that is perfectly acceptable-but please communicate that to them. I see their loyalty for you and your relationship-please communicate. Also, they have had some revelations about their wants and needs-listen to them with an open heart and an open mind. Use your compassion and empathy-I know you have it!
Givers-such loving people-but such difficult people. I myself am a recovering giver. You just know what others want/need more than you know what you want/need. You naturally can read people and give them what they want/need without that person having to ask. Lovely-that makes it easy for your partner...but maybe a little annoying too. Here comes the issue-problems arise when you expect your partner to do that for you. You might be a mind/need reader, but most people are not...consider this your superpower! The downside to being a giver, is being a poor receiver and not communicating your needs...most likely not even knowing your needs. You spend so much energy reading what the other person wants that you don’t check in with what you want. Givers need to learn to communicate their needs and “receive.” Balance is so important otherwise you can oscillate between selfless to selfish. You can get so frustrated and feel so unappreciated for all you give and then get this “screw you, I’m out” attitude...am I right? You might have suppressed your feelings, wants and needs for so long that you are ready to just walk away rather than express how you feel (do the inner work to find out what you feel, want, need) and have hope for positive change. There is love here-don’t give up-it’s time for that inner work if it hasn’t already happened or the problems will repeat themselves in the future. Your partner is open to learning your needs and compromising. Balance out your giving with giving to yourself and receiving what you want/need from your partner. Figure out what you need so you can communicate those needs to your partner. Find a balance of giving/receiving always so you can finally jump off that frustrating seesaw.
Humility will go a long way-not blame! Our relationships are mirrors where self reflection and growth can take place. If we believe and subconsciously treat our partner like they are clueless or careless to our needs-then guess what-that's what we will see reflected back to us. A self fulfilling prophecy. It's time to believe that your partner wants compromise and balance and to simply love. It’s time to communicate from the heart and to take responsibility for your feelings. What do you want for this relationship? I bet you and your partner have some shared relationship goals-so talk to them from the heart and then come up with a plan. Share your goals then “teamwork” a solution-here is how I can contribute...then let them share how they can contribute to the shared goal.
The opportunity is here for you to try a loving perspective to the situation. It is easy to get wrapped up in the words that are being said. What does your heart say about this situation? It knows the truth. Trust that. Sit still, take a deep breath and ask your heart what you need to know.
Seriously, Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up” just started playing on Pandora. The Universe/Divine/God is beautiful. Listen to what it tells you-through songs, intuition, your dreams, etc.
Sending you love, hope and faith! You got this-don’t forget-you are the magician!
