Angels are here to support, guide and comfort us in our daily lives, not to live our lives for us, or make decisions on our behalf. We grow in strength, wisdom, character and self-esteem when we face and overcome challenges.
There are of course many stories of angels intervening in life-threatening situations, which is wonderful. This phenomenon has been well-documented.
Over the years, I have seen time and time again that some of the key primary purposes of the angels in our lives is to remind and reinforce for us that we:
- are not alone;
- we can and will overcome the challenge that is in front of us at the moment;
- we can link back into the best part of our hearts, which is where our true strength lies. It is that part of us which they hold sacred for us.
Finding true love is hard. Literally. At times it feels like you have hit a cement wall, but it happens, and it hurts. The pain of love that once was, and is now unrequited, is not something one would wish on your worst enemies.
You may have loved with the hope and possibility of your love being returned, but instead you loved someone who just didn’t feel the same way. Or, you loved someone deeply, who also loved you in return, and then for some unknown reason, they turned off the switch.
When this happens, you are hurt in ways that are unimaginable and extremely bewildering. This person loved you and you loved them. Maybe they met someone new? Maybe their love was never real? Whatever the case, you’re left in excruciating pain. Read the rest of this entry »
I always tell my clients to start the day by choosing joy. When we are in the vibration of joy or love we begin higher on the vibrational scale, and when we hold one energy we cannot hold another. So, when we are in the vibration of joy, we can’t be in fear, dreading or doubt. The reverse is true. When we are in fear, we don’t feel love or joy.
I recommend a very sweet exercise that produces great results when we practice it, not only with words, but also by adding feeling and a sense of allowing. As with any exercise I use myself, or offer to my clients, I like to make it playful. So let’s play!
In the evening before you go to bed, when you have your PJs on, or first thing in the morning, make yourself comfortable and think of something that raises your vibrational state to one of joy. Put aside any doubts or resistance. Then in your journal, or on a pretty paper, and with your favorite pen, you can write down how you want your day to progress while holding this high vibe.

I have great faith in the emotional healing power of plants, their oils and how they can have a powerful effect on your well-being. The amazing healing properties of flowers, in particular, can be used to activate our body’s energy centers, otherwise known as the chakras.
Known as Muladhara, you will find this particular chakra at your spine’s base. Consider it, if you would, the very plug that connects you to the life force of the Earth herself and assists you to remain grounded. When this chakra is in balance, you should feel secure and stable. Should it become imbalanced, however, you may feel somewhat stuck (or lost) in life and find yourself focusing on subjects that do not serve your greatest interests. Read the rest of this entry »
Several years ago I was gifted my spirit name, Soaring Free, by one of my personal spirit guides of Native American decent. I have been reflecting on this for the past few weeks, as I am entering a new phase of my spirituality and higher consciousness.
Back In 2004, I had crossed a personal line in my life where self-esteem, confidence, happiness and self-love were basically non-existent. When I speak to my clients about the struggles or confusion they face on their life path and spiritual journey, or in their careers or relationships, I completely understand. I have been there myself, and I have experienced more than most. Fortunately, I have been able to overcome those challenges and I now know that anyone can overcome adversity.

Many years ago a friend of mine told me simply to choose happiness. I was thoroughly frustrated with that statement, as there was so much opposition in my life. Like most people, I have had struggles that lasted not only months, but decades. I faced adversity not only once or twice, but repeatedly. I also had to manage all these challenges on my own, due to traveling on my own, starting my own businesses, and surviving immense loss, among other things.
At the time my well-meaning friend had simply not experienced any of these life challenges to the same degree, thus I did not believe her. To make the choice to feel joy seemed resolutely trite, in the face of such constant, episodic misfortune!
In truth, she was not too far off in that statement. Except, it was not a conscious choice, or something of cultish free will. It was more of an attitude that came over me after repeated misfortune, which led to a toughening up, a new approach, a singular mindset, a resolute focus. Read the rest of this entry »
A crime committed against me has dominated my thoughts and actions for the past year. Just when it quiets down, and I have a brief respite, an event or something in my environment recalls it to my consciousness. Then I have to deal with it all over again, its poison renewing and growing in my mind like a malignant tumor.
In my life, there have been only two previous events that have overtaken me like this: a divorce and a serious vehicle accident. Time, mourning and forgiveness released me from those two events. Read the rest of this entry »
The fear of missing out, or FOMO, can cause a constant obsession with anything, and everything – whether it’s work, the news, or social media. And it can burn us out – physically, mentally and emotionally. It can actually compromise our adrenals, stress us out, scatter us mentally, and emotionally cause sadness, or even depression. We were not designed to live this way.
If we don’t unplug, take timeouts during our day, have an entire day of restoring ourselves, or actually take a vacation to unplug, we lose perspective of the great mystery that is life. We also sacrifice our freedom.
The most important spiritual benefit of taking time out is that our intuition becomes sharper. We don’t miss out on the messages our Guides, Angels, our Loved Ones on the other side, and the Divine may have for us. Yes, we have asked for their help, but for them it’s like t getting a busy signal on a phone line. They can’t get their message through to us. Read the rest of this entry »
