I continue to be amazed by the miraculous ways that we can receive messages. The possibilites are truly unlimited and we can receive more miraculous signs from heaven than we could ever imagine. They can come in quite unique and surprising ways if we allow ourselves to be open to infinite possibilties. They can send feathers and coins, rainbows, and even faces in the clouds. They can even show up as a butterfly as one client’s dog, Indy, did.
I was doing a reading for a young girl named Jaden. She wanted desperately to connect with her dog Indy who had passed a few years before. Among many other loving messages, I told her that Indy came as an orange butterfly. As we walked out of my house and walked over to where Jaden’s mother had been waiting in the car, her mother stood outside taking pictures of a bush while yelling, “Hey, come look at this orange butterfly. It’s been flying around me this entire time!”
They might come as a particular scent, perhaps a favorite cologne, the scent of flowers, or a smelly old football jersey. You might even smell cigarette or cigar smoke when they are near, letting you know that they are still watching over everything. They might come as an orb in a picture or a sparkle of light that catches your glimpse for a brief moment. Some signs might be subtle, while others are placed right in plain view. I remember back when I was getting a reading one time with my mentor over the phone. Jackie mentioned that there was a hummingbird there with her and that it had shown up much earlier than it usually did. We both knew why it had come at that exact moment as she had just been telling me that my life was beginning to get filled up with so much joy. The hummingbird is a sign for that – “that more joy is coming your way.”
Jackie said something like, “Oh, there he goes,” explaining that the hummingbird had just flown away. As soon as she had uttered the last word, a hummingbird landed on my feeder at my back door. We laughed as we realized that there just was no end to the magic that they could make happen.
Some people have specific signs that they get over and over from their guides to let them know they’re on the right path and that they are being guided every step of the way. For me, my sign is hearts. I mean, I find them everywhere! I find heart rocks almost daily and have collected hundreds over the years. I finally had to stop picking them up because I was running out of places to put them. Sometimes, if I need a little pick-me-up, I ask the angels for a sign and say something like, “I’d like to find a heart rock today.” Before you know it, I’ve stumbled across one. But rocks aren’t the only way I receive my heart messages. One day, behind my house, I was taking pictures of some of the beautiful icicles that formed along the river’s edge when suddenly, I felt the presence of fairies. I asked the fairies to give me a sign that they were there, as I bent down to take a picture of the beautiful icicles. After returning home and uploading my pictures to my computer, I’m sure you can imagine my surprise when I saw a heart icicle, which is what I like to call what’s in the picture above.

As the autumn equinox nears, I find myself amazed at how time seems to be flying by so quickly. Although I love summer, fall is definitely my favorite time of year. The leaves are beginning to change here in Northeast Pennsylvania, reminding me why I chose to move here in the first place. Watching God’s handy work in the mountains that surround me still takes my breath away even after living here for the past ten years. Although I am able to see God’s love everywhere, I find it necessary to protect my energy every now and then. If I begin to ignore my duty to myself, of protecting my light, I can begin to feel depleted, sad, angry, and so many other undesirable things.
I practice a daily routine to ensure that my energy stays as high as possible, in the vibration of peace, love and joy. For me, daily meditation and yoga, have simply changed my life. And the best thing is that you don’t even have to spend any money as there are so many free meditations and yoga videos online. One of my favorite guided meditations is Deva Premal’s 21 Day Mantra Meditation. Granted, it’s not one of the free ones, but I had to share one of my favorites. It is perfect for anyone who wants to begin a daily meditation practice as each day has a different focus from the next. You may be chanting to remove blocks one day and chanting to welcome in abundance the next. Deva’s voice is so soothing and beautiful and just resonates with my soul. She explains each mantra before she begins singing them but trust me, your soul will understand them even if you don’t. It’s definitely worth every penny as you can listen to them over and over. Here’s where you can find it:
So, now that we’ve discussed the importance of adopting a meditation and/or yoga practice, I wanted to move into some tips on how to clear and protect your energy. I use each of these from time to time and have tried to explain them in as much detail as possible. I would suggest trying each one several times to see if you can begin to sense a shift in your energy.
1. Clearing Your Energy
Light Bath: Sit quietly and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths in through your nose and out through your nose. Imagine a beautiful light coming down from above and entering in the top of your head. Envision this light moving down your body, inside and out, clearing anything negative or toxic in and around your body. Imagine this light moving all the way down through your body and out of the bottoms of your feet. This light not only carries all toxins and negative energy out of your body, but transmutes it into beautiful healing energy, which it carries down into Mother Earth. Take a few more deep breaths and picture this light moving from heaven to earth through your body. You are now one with the light. Express gratitude for the cleansing that has just taken place and open your eyes when you’re ready. Do this as many times as you need throughout the day. You can do this at home, at work, or while sitting in traffic (someone will honk when it’s time to move again). It only takes a few moments and will make a world of difference! I do this every day and sometimes several times per day if I find myself surrounded by negativity. It makes a huge difference!
2. Epsom Salt Baths:
Place about 1 cup of epsom salt in hot water (as hot as you can stand). Lay in bath for 20 mins and allow all of the toxins to leave your body. Lately, I’ve been taking epsom baths just about every other day and am feeling fantastic! Remember to drink lots of water before and after your bath or you may become dehydrated.
Sea Salt Baths: Place about 1 cup of sea salt in hot a water (as hot as you can stand). Lay in bath for 20 mins. Our bodies LOVE sea salt and your body will thank you for allowing it to soak up all the love.
3. Sage or Palo Santo:
Light sage (I use white sage) or palo santo and swish it around your body, from head to toe. Even better if you can clear your room or home on a regular basis. I personally prefer palo santo but either will work. I clear my home daily, sort of a quick clearing on the first floor where I see clients, and clear my entire home weekly from bottom to top. Believe me, if I don’t, I can tell! Emotions will be running high (and I don’t mean a good high LOL). You can find both white sage and palo santo on amazon.
4. Cut cords with Archangel Michael:
So many of us have cords that are connected to other people, situations, emotions, negative thought patterns, etc. All you need to do is find a quiet place, close your eyes, and ask Archangel Michael for his assistance. An example prayer might be, “Archangel Michael, thank you for cutting cords that are no longer serving my highest good. I ask that you clear them quickly, easily, and effortlessly and that everyone involved be filled up with love and light. Thank you. Amen.” You may get ideas or visions of who or what cords are connected to. Honor these thoughts and ideas as they are Divine guidance and be willing to cut cords and let go. Archangel MIchael isn’t able to cut cords of love so no worries about that. Your cords of love will stay intact!
5. Protecting Your Energy
Envision a white light coming down from above and encompassing your entire body. I often imagine it being 3-4 feet thick. You can even go a little further and picture negativity, in whatever form, just bouncing off of your bright white bubble. Show gratitude for the protection that you have received.
Ask Archangel Michael to surround you with his purple light of protection. Envision it encompassing your entire body. As always, show gratitude :).
Envision pulling a cloak of protection around you and literally move your hands as if you were pulling it closed around you. This will ensure that you are protected.
I hope that these tips help you as you continue on your journey. I can assure you that they have saved me on more than one occasion! As always, I am available if you ever need a reading, healing session or past life regression. Readings and healing sessions can be done in person or long distance via Skype or telephone. In the meantime, I am asking the angels to shield you and fill you up as you continue to share your light with the world. May you be blessed with unlimited abundance in all its forms as you shine brightly for all to see. Shine on my friends. The world needs your light!
I held my first Kid’s Class a few weeks ago: Connecting With Your Angels. I had several youngsters between the ages of six and twelve that attended the class with one of their parents. It was a magical time to say the least.
I began the class by talking about the angels: who they are, how they can help us, and the many signs they give us, letting us know they are near. I got tickled several times as I looked around and saw all of the children’s eyes staring right back at me. The parents were very attentive as well lol.
The group was obviously taking everything in! I told the children how the angels are able to send us signs, letting us know that they are around. Some of the examples I shared with the kids were the angel’s ability to send us feathers, coins, orbs, rainbows, butterflies, birds, and even faces in the clouds.
The children shared of their own experiences and listened closely as each other spoke. It was amazing to watch the connections being made in that very special room. I talked a bit about Archangel Michael and how he could help each of them, and gave them all a laminated picture of him to take home. I told them about guardian angels and that they each had their very own angels who had been assigned to them since birth. “Your guardian angels have always been with you and will never leave your side. You couldn’t get rid of them if you tried,” I said. Their eyes were so big and their smiles were priceless as they learned that they had their very own angels.
We took a short break and the families were instructed to pick “angel messages” from a bowl that I had placed in the room. Everyone seemed to take their time reaching in to the bowl as if they were trying to get just the right one. They shared their messages with each other and the children grinned from ear to ear, validating that they had gotten just the message they needed to hear. After the short break, I told everyone to get ready for a meditation. “During the meditation, you are going to be meeting with your guardian angels in an enchanted garden where you will be asking them their names,” I said. They each hurried over to their spots, some sitting on their meditation pillows and others laying down on the mats they had brought. The group got so still in such a short period of time. It was obvious they were eager to connect with their angels!
I began the meditation and guided the group into an enchanted garden where I had them envision their guardian angel coming through a gate and walking towards them. I told them to take their angel by the hand and begin walking through the garden, taking in all of the beauty that was around them. Next, I told them to picture themselves as a beautiful light. “Whatever color or colors you picture is perfect for you.” I told them that their light was a healing light and that it helped others, everywhere they went. “You make people feel better just by being around them. Your light helps everyone,” I said.
I went on to tell the group to envision their light being left everywhere. “Picture your light being left at school, at the playground, the grocery store, at your friend’s house. Everywhere you go, you leave your light to help others, and as you do this, the light within YOU just gets brighter and brighter.” It was so precious to watch these little lightworkers laying so still in meditation. I sat quietly and gazed around the room. “What an amazing group of light workers,” I thought to myself. I celebrated their magnificence in silence and thanked God and the angels for the opportunity to be a part of something so wonderful.
After the meditation, we went around the room as each child shared what had happened for them. It was such a moving experience, to listen to these little lightworkers talk about what they had seen. I gave each child a big piece of poster board and told them to color anything they had seen during the meditation. They all gathered crayons and began coloring their masterpieces. It just about brought tears to my eyes as I watched what they had seen come to life on paper. Every single child had something to draw. They each had at least one angel in their picture and several drew pictures of themselves holding hands with their angel. There were a couple of pictures where the children colored in little footprints behind them. When I asked what they were, they said “that’s my light that I’m leaving for others, to help them.” Talk about tugging at my heart strings!
It was a magical day. And the magic wasn’t just in what the kids learned or what they saw during meditation. It was magical because they made a connection……with each other. They found others, their own age, who were having similar experiences. And it was magical because they were able to tap into that inner child, that soul that believes without limitations. They were able to imagine and envision anything and everything without their ego getting in the way. We were all those imaginative kids at one time. We came into this world with a clear connection with God, the angels, the Universe. We all had the ability to believe, without a doubt, that there was so much more than this. Life begins, and we start having human experiences; some pleasant and wonderful, others not so much. With each fearful thought, our connection grows more distant, until one day, we feel lost, alone, and sometimes even isolated. Our ego is now running the show, and we have forgotten what it’s like to truly BELIEVE.
I felt so blessed to have spent that morning with the kids. Just being around them and experiencing their innocence reminded me that life had gotten way to serious. It was time for me to tap into my own inner child and let her shine like never before. It was time to play and laugh, gaze at the clouds, and blow bubbles once again. You might even spot me driving around town. If you see bubbles coming out of a sunroof, it just might be me :).
I know the angels are urging me to step up as a leader for the children, to help them step into their power and never lose their sense of wonder. I am answering the call. I have decided to begin a series of classes for kids, and will be posting them on my website and in future newsletters. The angels have already given me so many ideas that I had to start writing them down so I wouldn’t forget. I really see this growing and believe it will be BIG in no time. The children are our future and I’m ready to help them on their journey any way that I can. I feel there are so many parents who are seeking something different for their children; something that will help them be a light to the world. I applaud you, parents, for allowing your child to step into their own power and for supporting them as they find their way.
I had a dream the other night where I was standing in front of a panel of my guides. Although I couldn’t see their faces, I knew they were beings that I had known before in Heaven or perhaps another lifetime. They were telling me things and teaching me things, most of which I couldn’t remember when I woke. I do, however, remember something they kept saying over and over: “You are here to teach the Lightworkers.” I know what that means, and I am ready.
I hope you are enjoying the beautiful sunshine. It’s amazing how different we feel when we are able to spend time outdoors, connecting with Mother Nature and noticing all of the amazing blessings that surround us each and every day.
I’ve been noticing so many animals lately, many of which come with messages. For some of you, they are the energy of your loved ones letting you know they’re near. For others, they hold messages of love, hope, and guidance to help you on your path. There are so many ways that we can receive messages, and it’s important to realize that animals can play an integral part of our journey. They visit us over and over sharing their wisdom and guiding us, attempting to make our journey just a bit easier.
I am visited by a cardinal often. For me, it is a reminder that I am on the right path and that I need to continue moving forward in my life purpose. The hawk reminds me to remain focused on that which I desire, and move towards it with unwavering faith. I was in Bethany Beach, Delaware last week and heard the strangest sounds while walking my Dog, Daisy, one morning. The sound was unfamiliar but I could tell it was coming from the trees just a short distance ahead. As Daisy and I made our way around the winding road, to where I thought the sounds were coming from, I noticed some commotion coming from a tree overhead. As my eyes focused in, I saw five blue herons directly above me. It appeared to be some sort of nesting place for them. It was an amazing site! I stood there and just stared at them for the longest time. I am often visited by a heron on the river that runs behind my house, but I had never seen so many all together. My mind grew quiet as I watched them move about and I began to hear that they held a very important message for me.
When I arrived back at the house that I was renting, I quickly went over to a table to get one of my favorite books. It’s called Animal Spirit Guides by Steven Farmer and is loaded with any and every animal you can think of. The book is full of all of the messages that the animal kingdom has for us (unless, like I said earlier, you have your own unique connection with a particular animal). I couldn’t wait to see what the heron had to say to me. Each animal comes with various messages but trust me, you will know which one is for you. As usual, my message was right on the nose. As I read each word, I knew what I needed to do. I sent gratitude to the heron for giving me my message and asked my angels, guides and ancestors to help me forge on.
As things continue to shift in the world, it’s important that we strive to keep our connection; our connection with God, the angels, our guides, loved ones, and even the animals. The more tools we have, the easier it is for our guides to send us messages. My Animal Spirit Guides book goes everywhere with me along with a few other favorites of mine that I might mention in a future post. I would encourage each and every one of you to check out this amazing book. If you have it in your arsenal, you WILL begin receiving messages from the animal kingdom.

I’m back in beautiful Pennsylvania after spending two months in MA. Surprisingly enough, that’s what I needed. A whole two months! My vessel had become clogged in more ways than one and I needed ample time to cleanse not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually as well. As I felt my true self begin to shine through once again, I made a promise to myself, God and the angels, that I would never let that happen again. I had no clue just how run down I had become until several weeks into my sabbatical. I was so weary and was carrying so much upon my shoulders, like so many of you. I had once again taken on the weight of the world and was losing my fight. Ahhhhhh, I feel so much lighter just writing these words as I was able to let so much go during my time away. Now I am ready to continue on my journey as the Light worker I was meant to be, making sure to take care of myself along the way. I once again feel like the lotus flower in the picture above, resting peacefully on still waters.
I spent a lot of time writing while in Massachusetts, but my trip proved to be about so much more. It was a time for reconnecting……with God, the angels, and my guides. Although I always take time to pray and meditate, I feel such a deeper connection after taking time to really listen. I didn’t realize that I had lost touch with my spirit guide, Chief Joseph, who came to me several years ago during meditation. Once I reconnected with him, again during meditation, I began to experience so many “chance” encounters and “coincidences” where he made himself known. I knew he was calling out to me, letting me know that he had never left my side.
While driving along the countryside one day with my two dogs, I felt guided to turn down a particular road. I had no idea why, but knew that I needed to go in that direction. So I listened to my intuition and turned down an unfamiliar road. As I was driving and enjoying the scenery, I came upon a little country store. There were lawnmowers and mulch for sale, but sprinkled throughout the property were these amazing wood carvings. I just had to take a look! As I pulled into the parking lot, I found myself parked right in front of a carving of an Indian Chief. Holy cow! It was Chief Joseph. I had just reconnected with him the day before and there he was staring right at me. I got out of my car and walked around looking at all of the amazing carvings. There were bears, foxes, and eagles, and even a huge totem that hosted many different animals. They were all so beautiful but I was drawn to the carving of the Indian Chief. The carver came out of the store and I talked with him for over an hour. He had such an interesting story as he had changed his life dramatically in recent years. He was a stock broker, making tons of money, but found himself hating his job and his life. He began asking the Universe to help him figure out what he was supposed to do next, that would bring him complete joy and satisfaction. One day, as he was driving home from work, he passed a gentleman who was carving amazing sculptures with a chainsaw. He was intrigued by the intricate and amazing pieces of art that the gentleman was able to create, all by using a chainsaw. He stayed and talked with the man for several hours, and after their brief encounter, decided that this was what he wanted to do. He wanted to create beautiful works of art for others. Now I know what you’re thinking and no, I am not turning to woodcarving LOL. That’s not where I’m going with all of this. I simply wanted to give you an example of someone whose life had changed so dramatically once he put it out to the Universe that he not only desired a change, but was willing to take a leap of faith. He taught himself how to carve amazing pieces out of trees and is now one of the top twenty wood carvers in the world.
I ended up purchasing the carving of the Indian Chief. I found myself listening to Native American flute music each and every day and felt Chief Joseph close by. He let me know he was around me several times while I finished my stay in Massachusetts. Once was while I was getting a massage. The therapist put on a CD of Native American flutes. Another was when I was visiting a nearby town with my parents, who had come to visit for the day. As we walked through a store that carried Native American clothing and little knick knacks, I noticed a very ornate set of dishes. As I walked closer, I was able to read the name on the dishes. The design was called “Chief Joseph.” You just can’t make this stuff up!
I have so many amazing stories to share but wanted to share this one in particular in the hopes that you might realize that there are so many beings of light that are just waiting to help you on our journey. We all have spirit guides who want to help us. We may have known them in a past life or they may have just chosen to guide us on our journey this time. They have always been with us and will reveal themselves when we are ready. Spirit guides are loving and wise and can help make our journey a little easier. If you don’t know who your spirit guide is yet, begin by simply telling them you are ready to meet them. Then be open to however they choose to reveal themselves to you.
Sending so much love your way…….
