September month and Weekly Guidance: August 28th, 2017: Dream big and take big action. The Universe wants to rise to meet you!

Weekly Guidance: Dream big and take big action.

Feeling better now that Saturn is stationed direct in Sagittarius?

I know I am. Now that Saturn is moving direct in Sagittarius again, I feel like things can flow again with getting too weird or out there with random crazies. I also feel that things are up to me again, not simply the Universe. As if by consciously putting myself out there in the Universe I can get some results toward my intentions that I can actually bank on. Focus, aim, and inner healing are the theme of the week, not just this Saturn period.

Everyone is feeling more free, so remember to keep your on and off duty boundaries, as the "Be vigilant" card from the Messenger Oracle deck reminds us. It's not our job to guide people through every second of their live and decisions. Sometimes just letting people know we have faith in them is really all that is needed. We have to take care of us first, get our stuff done first, and give from our excess. And the Universe is counting on us to take of our stuff, our mission, this week.

Thursday and Sunday are Master 22 days, so we're going to have cosmic support to get things DONE! Mama Earth (the Mawu card) and the tarot card "the world" remind us this can be an awesome week, nourishing, moving toward blossoming if we can release our fear of getting bitten in the ass or the crazy idea that we can heal everyone else.  These are the patterns we need to free ourselves from, so we feel fully supported and justified in taking care of ourselves.

"The Ghostlands" card from the Enchanted Map deck asks us to stop comparing NOW to the past. We are never really reliving a past pattern, as each moment is a new and different place and time. Our glory days aren't only in the past either, we need to taking Inspired and creative action to make those kinds moments are of our present lives. What you are experiencing nostalgia for are the things that we are being called to bring into our current lives, not from the direct past experience, but from where we're currently at. 

 

Don't forget to get the whole reading of my Monday FB livestream on replay!! 

Some crystals to help you focus your energy this week could be:

Malachite (to keep us grounded, inspired action), Sodalite (to help boost our voice as we finish up Merc retro), and Blue Topaz (for helping you tune into the energies coming through).

 

Useful internal work for the week:

Take a real good look at whats working and why that seems to be. We're almost out of Merc retro, only one week and a few days, we're going to be able to solidify plans quickly now. Make sure you're recording what you are doing, making note of how smoothly you can turn some of your eclipse inspirations and opportunities into a regular and positive thing for you.

September Guidance:

This month of integration is going be like a soulful Homecoming. Now that the dust has settled on the big Eclipse action we might be asking what on Earth it all meant, what all that hoopla was about. Well it was more than a simple string of bad luck or chaos. And we've got all September to begin to take part what did happen. And as some of our retrograde go direct over this next month, all those changes we wanted to see happen are going to come to the forefront. Eclipses aren't necessarily about beginning new things, but the second half of Mercury retrograde is. And this is where we currently are. 

All the ideas and inspiration can now begin to to be put into motion. You have all month to play around and find out what works, but what you focus on this week and next week are going to an extra dose of manifestation power!!

 

 

Cards drawn for the month:

AEracura: Blossoming: You are just getting started, have patience with yourself and the process, and don't give up.

September Guidance

What does this mean for the lightworker Soulpreneur, the biz goddess?

 

This might be a week for:

  • Either moving forward, slow and steady, or finally making some decisions about how to move forward slow and steady.
  • Pay attention to new things seem to be working for you or helping you gain more traction. These are clues as to where we need to invest more time and attention over the coming month.
  • Some Core Desired Feeling or Energetic key work might be good this week, as the past comes up to remind us of the good times. Just remember to not compare the past to now, we are looking how we can weave in some new energies into what we are doing now, that might have served us well in the past.

Weekly Guidance: June 26th, 2017: Be the source of all you wish for your life

 

So how was solstice for you??

Those amazing high vibes are going to continue for the week ahead and as we head into the last Super New Moon of 2017. A cold finally caught with me this week, and so I took the hint and took things slow. Dreams and potential have been filtering through for me. While not all of those potentials were things I would necessarily like to see come to pass for myself and my family, this month has been about getting into alignment with what is actually best for us. Considering the things that have been circling in my life and the lives of my family and friends, just about the only thing that's really holding us back from making life change is how we judged that choice in the past. Circumstances might just be shifting to places where we never thought we might go, and it's not all bad. Bad is a judgement we make, not a definite, objective quality.

The 8 of Pentacles came forward this week to remind us that sometimes we need to look at all possible solutions or choices before we will know what is actually best for our situation. Even if that might mean bankruptcy, loss of job or homes, going back to school, or illness. These are life resets, not good or bad. What we do with those circumstances is what will make those choices good or bad for us, we can't know that until we have chosen and began to walk that path. We can faith, and the 8 of pents tells us this, in ourselves, our gut, the feelings behind the dreams we are building, to make the choice that feels good for our long term growth.

The Messenger Oracle card, "Nurture what you love" is a definite indication to follow what feels good. While no one could say they would love losing a home or having to move, there might be some definite upsides that you need to keep your focus on. Is there a better, more aligned location for you to live in? Is there a way to find cheaper rent, so you could save more? Of course, moving here is just one example. But keeping our eye on the prize, like say a more sustainable lifestyle, one that feels like freedom and security, could what you really need and will keep you from getting too down about the details surrounding the changes that don't feel the best. The phrase "look for the silver lining" is more than a cliche, it's how the Universe works when we are manifesting change. 

The better and stronger we can reflect the changes we want to see happen, from a soul level, the easier they will manifest in our lives. You can't fake it. You actually need to be able to generate that level of feeling where you are right now. This week could be very supportive of that level of manifestation and change. Spark, from the Enchanted Map deck, and Sarasvarti, from the Goddess Guidance Oracle deck, are all about inspiration, creativity, and expression. Use the arts to explore your feelings this week, re-work your vision board, create an amulet to help to focus on the feelings behind your dreams, write a little ritual for New Moon to help you release what stands in your way from being in the gorgeous energy you want for your life. Neptune is egging our sense of spirituality to go deeper, spirituality and creativity have a wonderful synergy together that could create great strides in what you are look to bring into your life.

What does this mean for the intuitive biz Goddess?

This week should be geared toward things like:

  • Researching programs or classes you would like to save for.
  • Making sure your systems actually support what you are trying to do and meet your ROI standards. Additional automation might be a real task for you this week.
  • Looking ahead, with new thoughts, to rest of the year and into next year.
  • Getting down to the nitty gritty of what you actually need to get clients and run your biz.

 

As we look toward what clients might need more focus on, you might find they need help around:

  • How to begin a life up-level and how to work dreams into a plan.
  • How to be more accountable and take bigger or more strategic action in their lives.
  • How to get back to spiritual and personal growth.
  • Choice discernment.

Why the intuitive Yes sometimes leads to a fail: Part 2 of spiritual discernment for the soulful biz series

The one thing we have to remember, which we talked about in the last article, is that all guidance in meant to be acted on in the moment. But once you've made some steps on the magickal feeling idea, you are now in a different place with it. Does that mean your new project could suddenly become a no-go?

Quite possibly.

It would depend on what you discovered in your last steps of inspired action.

The biggest problem is that we seem to default to this idea that a stupendously feeling green light signal is true always and forever after that moment.  If we are totally on board with the idea, we also seem to default to the idea that a green light means we will succeed or that our project will be the bestest thing ever in the history of good ideas.

We resist the knowing that all ideas need to be developed, honed, refined, worked at. We want our successes to come easily, so we assume that a green light means we have a project that will be a homerun. While very generally speaking, this could be true. We could continue to get green light through all phases of the project and things might just turn out pretty darn spanking for us. 

Most of the time it doesn't. Most of the time a "no" signal or a "hmmm...maybe" signal creeps us on us and we don't even realize it.  We don't realize it because we think we're stuck, have writers block, can't figure something out, our follow through has petered out, or we have lost focus. With that comes the stories about how it's all about our value, worth, or intelligence. 

An intuitive maybe does not mean no or stop

Those "maybe" signals aren't personal. Those signals have nothing to do with your those stories you tell yourself about why you feel stuck, unsure, unclear, or in resistance. It's much more simple than we make it. 

A "maybe" signal isn't a stop signal or a "no, don't do this." It's a "go slow" signal, "recheck the map" signal, "you're taking this too seriously" signal, or "you need to talk to people about this" signal. Maybe feelings mean that something off and needs to be corrected. But that doesn't mean your project or idea is garbage. It just needs to be worked or developed more. 

 

An intuitive “maybe” does not mean NO or STOP. Click To Tweet

The intuitive maybe could mean...

The "No" or "don't go there" signal is a strong signal. Our guard will go up, we will reject the idea outright, it's instinctual. Both the "go signal and the "stop" signal are strong and clear so we recognize them easily. It's everything in between hard "yes" and "no" that trips us up. Any uncomfortable feeling less than that hard "no", is a maybe signal.

A lot of times our personal stories can muddle what is a rather straightforward piece of guidance. If we can take a step back from making a conclusion about our worth and understand, so that we understand that we are simply being asked to reconsider something or make a tweak to how we are talking or creating our new idea, we won't feel stuck nearly as much.

 

As we continue in this series of Spiritual Discernment for the Soulful Biz, we'll take a deeper look at how to further step into role of biz priestess and make powerful choices for the temples of service we are building.

Weekly Guidance: Feb. 27th, 17: Allow high-vibe energies to shift your expectations

 

As we move through this week the beautiful energy from the New Moon and Eclipse will begin to wane. As much as we can come to LOVE those times of high energy, once we manage to get in sync with them, they don’t last. They never will, and they aren’t meant to. Those periods of high energy and big dreams are meant to realign us and give us some fuel to sail through the slower moment and times. By the end of the week we’re going to be looking at the “real” world again, so take the time at the beginning of the week to create reminders for yourself for the weeks to come about your big why, your big vision, and any other strong guidance you received this past Eclipse season.

There might be a bit of a transition you have to go through, from high external light to having to be our own light again. That transition can you feeling a bit like “What just happened? Why do I feel so down today?”. But in reality, Loves, it’s not you. It’s more like living off a big bonus check or big tax refund for a time, and then having to go back to your regular budget. It might feel like a bit of a let down at first, but it’s not.  It’s just life going back to equilibrium.

At the beginning of the week we will have a wonderful energy to help us reorient our daily routines and actions to allow to carry our now clearer and bigger dreams forward with more ease, so make use of that 22 master day on Tuesday!! During this period, don’t just plan for the week ahead, plan for the long run and try to anticipate your emotional patterns. Your dream babies won’t come to life within a week, so plan how you will nourish and grow them over time, in a way is that nourishing for both you and your dreams. This isn’t just a week of planning and reflecting. The Wheel of Fortune was drawn, I believe, to remind us to take action. Even if it’s just talking something out with a close friend or your mastermind group, sometimes we have to “put out” or create our own ripples in order to begin attracting new and different things.

Weekly guidance: Oct. 10th: Magick is afoot!

weekly guidance oct 10 release struggle

This week we get a taste of the super-moon 2016 season. This season is going to ask us to dig deep in a way we haven’t experienced since the beginning of the year. I have been missing this energy, as I usually find it easy to establish a good stride in the type of energy coming. The cards drawn for this week are pretty straightforward. There is magick afoot and it’s our job to stay in center and ride that cosmic wave. Our self-care and eye for sustainability (of energy and time) is the focus of this coming week and full moon. The moon-beamy energy and the energy of this month’s meteor showers is going being a watery, emotional, dream-like quality to our guidance and manifestations.

Memories of good times past will serve a message from spirit to ask to look at what we are making time for in our new eclipse-influenced patterns and lifestyle. Relationships seem to be coming into focus, as we will see clearly how to round out our new lifestyle with more connection and space around our doings. The call for more being instead of doing is going to be a common theme. Spirit messages will flow toward us like spring melt rising the river banks and we need to stay on top of the soul and spirit communication coming through right now, lest we take it for granted. If you follow my work, the best way to stay on of such things is through relaxation and self-care. To care for self is to care for Soul.

This month and week will have a great deal of priority sorting to do. The hectic motions of the full moon and October will have us thinking about the “how” of sustainability for long term plans. Don’t be tempted to jump into the future or compare your place in your path with another’s place. We cannot move forward with our plans and destiny without passing through this moment and place in time. Make no mistake that we are being called to adjust, put quality over quantity. But this is not meant to be a message to stop what we are doing, it is not meant as discouragement. Time is our side, even if might not be passing as you expected it to. Keep slow and steady, and enjoy the ebbs and flows this week has to offer! Don’t sweat the small stuff and shift your focus inward to appreciate how far you’ve come!!

Weekly Guidance: Oct 3rd: Love in action

Weekly guidance oct 3rd Love in action

 

On behalf of the Divine and all the guardians and guides, love, this week I ask you to not take things personally!!

This is going to be a week where we will confront a lot of shadow work revolving around our relationships and our self-worth. Depending on what blocks and strange flows you have in your reality and energy system, it might seem like a week of fighting, a week of having your value challenged, or a week where doing your normal routine of getting out there won’t seem enough. This is the Universe trying to send you a message, but it’s not a message about why you deserve to fail. Instead, it’s a message of where you need to apply copious amounts of self-love and compassion. Now that we have that cleared up, I also want to say that what will come up this week is also meant to change our thinking.

I didn’t say to rethink your commitment. We’ve worked really hard over the last two month to hone and clarify what we are committed to. Venus and Mars are going to showing us the areas that need to be brought into alignment so that our commitment to our work and higher purpose can flow even stronger. This isn’t’ a test either. It’s a week where the energies are going to give the direct consequences and result that our thinking is producing. In each moment and exchange, we have the ability to create the reality we want. It’s a matter of changing our thinking around “obstacles”.

This week, we need to heed the internal compass we have been building up over the eclipse season. This internal compass is the vision or sense of how things are supposed to feel. If reality isn’t measuring up to what you envisioned, then it’s time to change your thinking around what you are doing. If you experience this, it’s time to dig a little deeper into our expectations of ourselves and others. Quality of mind and the emotion we put behind our efforts is the real key to our manifestation. We need to be centered enough to hold our center and come from an already incredible place. We cannot wait until something or some time is more perfect. We need to keep our desired feelings in the forefront of our mind and create reality from there. The quality of our thinking defines our success, and this week will provide opportunities to see where we need to change the quality of our thinking. Use your dreams as the reference point for your internal compass.

So if this week, you get feeling a little insecure or worried. Stop. Don’t engage in triggered feelings. Instead get curious about how to shift your quality of mind, because you are most likely in a mental state isn’t going to serve you well.

Resistance and Intuition: The dance of growth

dance of resistance and guidance

This post about resistance is part of a series about the 4 most common blocks to the staying in the Intuitive State, you can catch up on the whole series here.

In retrospect, I can see so clearly how I created resistance over just about everything that now make me who I am today. From mindset shifts, to lessons about abilities work, to my own worth. I used to say….

That can’t be right!

How could that be?

Maybe in an ideal world.

But I don’t know how to do that?

I’m not sure how that would really help.

That sounds so hard/expensive/drawn out.

I can’t do that.

But that’s not who I am….

But I don’t wanna…..

 

I resisted because what was being presented to me, or rather my idea of that shift, scared me on some level. Perhaps it made me feel like I was lacking in something that made the shift seem impossible. Maybe I feared the backlash of saying something or choosing to approach the situation a certain way. Over the course of my own path there have been things I’ve known I should be doing, confronting, making my stand on, which I was happy to hold far far away from my daily life. I had hope I could get by without having to go there. It seemed like tango between feeling guided and resisting guidance. One moment both sides of me were all over each other, then next guidance was trying to reel my resistance back into the dance.

Sometimes it seems like there is some grand scheme to make us each confront our resisted truths. But then I learned to sit with my resistance and fear. I learned not to let it run away with me, but to sit and see what it is I am actually feeling fear or lack over. Because of this practice, I no longer believe that the Universe or God are some cold authorities out to test us at every step. The reason it seems like the Universe is out to teach us a lesson  is only because we act out of fear, we psyche ourselves out, and allow ego to talk trash to us to the point where simply aren’t even willing to look at what Soul might have been implying. We are constantly being presented Truths and ways to grow, some trigger our emotions and fear more deeply than others. Sometimes change comes naturally, even welcomed. The only difference from a “hard” lesson and an easy one is our perception of what has to change. Of course, there are somethings that just suck. But that doesn’t mean that we can’t begin to see why it’s needed. We might even see how it was the perfect thing for us, even if it made us a little uncomfortable.

Getting to the point where we can even begin to unravel the stories ego came up with can be tricky. Where I used to see this as never-ending of dance of acceptance and rejection of the present moment, I now see it as a birthing process.  When we are finally in alignment and really know, deep down inside, that we must change, we allow pieces of our intrinsic, already existing, potential self, come into our reality bubble.  We are birthing a more integrated version of ourselves, one has stripped away another layer of shadow. Shadow is the boxes we create when we believe ourselves to be shameful, unworthy, broken. In other words, not already fully part of the light. But let’s just face facts, Ego abhors change. Unless we see from the get go that the change we are considering doesn’t have a downside, we’re going to have to deal with Ego trying to butt it’s head into our soul business.

resistance as labor pains

Maybe we stop dancing because of resistance.

In seeing this process as labor pains, we see that our resistance is a very natural pain, a common experience we share, along a larger journey. A lot of times, Ego will go into contractions over the fact that we are moving out of our comfort zone. Sometimes those are contractions are so intense all we can to do is hold on and breathe our way through it. But once we can recognize that the world isn’t falling to pieces or that something is trying to stop you, all that just happened was a birthing pain, you can more easily reorient yourself along the path.

And as a pregnant mother needs extra care and support, so will you, as you allow more of you soul-self into this world! But once begun and committed to, there really is not way to stop the birthing process. Labor pains are the not reason to stop changing, growing. They are the signal the end of this particular journey is coming to some kind of conclusion. Those bouts of resistance are the sign we were looking to tell us to be diligent so we can finish what we started.

The things we resist the hardest are usually the things we need the most to become more whole. Click To Tweet
