Angel Card Reading – Week of Mar 27, 2016


I chose 3 crystals this week:

Chrysoprase provides courage in matters of the heart. Creates trust in the universe. Promotes going with the flow. Soothes heartaches and loneliness. Instills a state of grace, inner peace and inner strength. 

Blue Apatite – Supports creativity. Eases tension and restores clear thought. Promotes teaching. Helps co-ordinate the emotional, intellectual, physical and etheric bodies. 

Prehnite – A stone of unconditional love. The crystal to heal the healer. Puts you in touch with the universe’s energy grid. Enhances inner knowing. Helps to make your home a healing sanctuary. Alleviates nightmares, phobias and fears.

I can already tell by the crystals that healing is in order for this week. Teaching a way we can heal, by sharing our experiences with others, we open our hearts to them. We give them a sense of understanding, and then they learn from that and pass that along to others in need. It is the great ripple effect. I also see fears being brought up again. There are fears we need to work through in order to heal in the way we are needing to. Let’s see what the cards say, and how they can provide more insight. 

Blessing in disguise is telling me that we do have healing to complete. We need to heal the part of ourself that is so deeply damaged, that it is preventing us from seeing the blessings right in front of us. I constantly question the situations in my life, asking if they are right for me, asking if I am wasting my life or making bad choices.. But the truth is I don’t need to question anything. All I need to do is live, and appreciate. Nothing is ever going to be perfect… Not now, not ever. No matter what you may be going through this week, see the blessing that it provides. There are 2 cards referencing hidden blessings, so whatever is going to happen this week is definitely meant to be, divinely guided. Going through a breakup? See your personal freedom, and focus on you. Get fired from your job? See it as an opportunity to pursue other job interests and passions. Having an argument with someone? Know that it will clear the air and possibly bring about the resolution that it requires. Everything is meant to happen for a reason. No matter what your going through, or with whom, see it as an opportunity to forgive. Be understanding to their situation. Most importantly, be understanding to your own situation. Forgive yourself. Allow yourself the healing and forgiveness that will truly let you conquer your fears so you can move forward. The more positive we can attempt to be in each moment, the more we train ourselves to react that way in the future. This will only help our karma to receive positive treatment in return. Ask is a beautiful reminder, that all we need to do when times are tough, is ask for help. Ask for help from those around you. Ask for help from the Angels. Ask them to give you strength to get through the situation. Ask for clarity to help you understand your situation. The Angels are here to guide us and help us, that’s why they chose the crystals they have.. To help us heal, and alleviate our fears. To give us confidence and have trust in life. To mend our broken hearts. To give us the strength we need to forge ahead, and see the blessings that life provides us. Stay strong, and see those beautiful blessings. Weather the storm to see that beautiful rainbow. It’s not all bad! 

Blessing in Disguise – The Angels sent you this card to help you recognize the blessing the midst of an apparent challenge. What you’ve appeared to have lost needed to fall away, and will be replaced with something better. Have no fear for your future, but continue praying and following the guidance that comes to you through repetitive feelings, thoughts, visions and words. Release the need to control and predict the outcome to this situation. 


Opportunity to Forgive – The Angels sent you this card because they see that you’ve grown weary of a recurring negative pattern in your life. To break this cycle, it’s important for you to release old toxic thoughts about the current situation and relationship. You can do this by breathing deeply, and on each exhalation, giving your worries, fears, anger, and other painful emotions to the Angels. Forgiveness doesn’t mean that you are condoning the other person’s behaviour. It just means that your unwilling to carry toxic feelings and thoughts about him or her. Release, be free, and experience positive patterns through forgiveness. Avoid blaming yourself. There are hidden blessings in this situation. Focus on desires instead of fears or judgements. 


Ask – This card serves as a reminder to ask your Angels for help more often. The Angels can help with any and all areas of your life, including bringing you ideas, courage, faith, confidence, and clarity. They can also help with material needs, such as money, time, health and vitality. Ask for whatever you need.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Mar 20, 2016


The crystals I chose this week, starting from left to right, then top and bottom, are:

Pyrite – Attracts abundance in our life. It is a strong stone to promote positive thinking and abundance. 

Goldstone – I also consider this a stone that attracts abundance. Goldstone is said to help attain one’s goals. Goldstone is also said to help one stay calm and stabilize the emotions. It can be used as an energy generator and can deflect unwanted energies, making it useful as a protection stone. 

Red Jasper – It creates a strong connection to the earth and this is very helpful for emotional equilibrium and spiritual grounding. It gives deep insight into personal difficulties and gives you a strong sense of stability. 

Carnelian – Carnelian are stones of action, that will give you the courage and confidence to move forward on a new path in life.

Apache Tears – Apache Tears are said to especially relieve grief and sadness as well as assisting in giving and accepting forgiveness. They can help release negative emotions, and they also can balance one’s emotional state. They are good luck stones, said to bring good luck to anyone who has one. They are excellent meditation tools, especially for clarifying issues and gaining insight. 

Smoky Quartz – Is an excellent grounding stone. It neutralizes negative vibrations and is detoxifying. 

Hematite – Hematite crystals have an excellent grounding and balancing energy, as well as being a powerful aid to stimulate the mind. They enhance memory and evoke deep thought.

I realized that I started with crystals to attract abundance and happiness leading the flow into our life, the middle represented our inner focus, the Apache Tears at the end to represent our strength needed throughout the path of our life, the Smoky Quartz above to direct the flow of our energy into the heavens, and the hematite to keep us grounded to Mother Earth. The orange and red crystals were spoken about during a card reading I read earlier today, and I also happened to sleep with them near me last night. It appears this week we will finally finish working through some issues within ourselves, to move forward to some positive lessons and manifestations, and it looks like this week will be very positive for us! Iceberg card always feels negative to me… Like some ugly part of my personality that I try to hide, is only becoming more prevalent because of the attention I give to try and avoid it. When we learn lessons in life, it takes time… It takes processing.. Like waves of the ocean washing up and slowing clearing away layers of hurt and pain, to eventually find renewal. I have been feeling frustrated lately, and asking myself what I do to attract these “feelings” about my life… What can I really do to change the outcome of my life and my happiness? I believe this card is a reminder that everyday, we are working on ourselves and changing. It is a process. That which we perceive is negative about ourselves, can just be an aspect of who we are, as an imperfect human being. I have to find the way to accept and love myself fully, and stop worrying and questioning. I need to let my life progress and process, while trying to stay positive and loving! Although I look at this card a bit negatively, it appears from the spread of the 3 cards that we will learn from our submerged aspects in our life, and be able to move forward to a new phase of our lives, one filled with manifestations and renewal. We got through the tough times, we completed our lessons, and it’s time to start fresh! I also believe, it could represent an idea or want that we have suppressed, and now it’s time to bring it to the surface! It’s funny, this evening I went outside and looked up at the moon and realized its almost full again. Where is the time going!! It felt to me like it should still be a New Moon, and look at the card that came. I believe this card is the perfect card for the first day of spring. It is a symbol of the promise in our life, that our desires are coming to fruition. The image in the card is so beautiful and romantic to me. Spring is always a season of love, and this card definitely confirms that. Keeping our thoughts positive and attracting positivity in our lives will help us guarantee our soul’s desires will come true. Whale is the perfect sign of us being able to move out of our element, if only momentarily, so we can face fears and move past them, knowing they were only illusionary. We are going to push our boundaries and surpass them. We are going to find newfound freedoms to live by going forward. Change can be scary, but it can also be liberating!! That’s exactly what I believe is in store for us this week, is a wonderful feeling of liberation and power! I need to get out of my element for a while, I think that is exactly what I need to restore my happiness and freedom! (Thank you Angels!! 🙏 I take just as much from these readings as you guys do!)

Iceberg (Submerged) – Up to 90% of an iceberg’s body is below the surface, deeply submerged in the bosom of Grandmother Ocean. Yet Grandmother allows considerable freedom for her enormous children, permitting them to move about as dictated by the currents and their own momentum. Having broken from a glacier or ice shelf, they float along the sea, much to the detriment of vessels that attempt to traverse their passageways. Most of us have heard stories of ill-fated ships that have had tragic encounters with these ice mountains. Although the top most portion can easily be seen, there’s still a massive amount of its body below the water that may be difficult to detect. That which remains unseen can fool us and perhaps even be dangerous and damaging. Whatever you suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conciliation awareness will show up somewhere and somehow. These are your shadow aspects. At one time, you put them out of your consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt. Sometimes these submerged aspects of yourself are projected onto others, so that they mirror those denied or suppressed parts of you, and you may even harshly judge these characteristics when they are exhibited. Now is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them. These may make up some sort of self-expression, a secret dream you wish to accomplish, or even uglier aspects that are difficult to acknowledge or accept. Whatever you have submerged deep inside you, this is your opportunity to pay attention to those things and welcome them to the family called “you”.

New Moon (Promise) – Gazing at the sliver of the new moon smiling down upon them, the couple embraces each other, welcoming the promise of their love. The fading sun drapes the clouds and waters with its tinge of luminescence, as the crescent opens its arms to the nearby planet Venus, names after the Roman Goddess of love. This is a time for manifestation, beginnings, and renewal, with the promise that our desires will come to fruition. Here Grandmother Moon initiates another lunar cycle, moving from darkness to fullness and back again over approximately one month. Her promise of what’s to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtains of darkness that had recently encompassed her. It is a promise that has been kept for as long as she has existed. This is the time to launch a project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea. A promise has 2 meanings: it can be a commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen, or it can imply that something specific is expected to happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your intention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept. 

Whale (Breach) – This powerful creature of the ocean takes a few great sweeps with his fins and propels himself briefly out of the waters where he spends the majority of his life. He’s taking a break from the ordinary Earth element in which he lives to exist even for a few moments in the realm of blue skies and sun, having broken through the skin of the ocean in the magnificent display of fullness and strength. In this image, the humpback whale that has burst out of the ocean expresses an almost palpable feeling of release and joy. Often when we manage to change our environment – to break through illusionary blockages – we experience an intense feeling of relief and can let go of any previously held fears and assumptions of what would happen once we did overcome that barrier, whether it’s material, emotional, or mental. Simply getting away from the trance of technology for a few hours and spending time in nature is a breach from the trappings of civilization that can suffocate us and prevent us from connecting to Earth. It’s time to take a break! Not just a coffee break, but a respite from the usual environment you find yourself in. That trip you wanted to take? Go for it. Tired of being indoors? Make it a point to get outside. You have become so attached your surroundings that you have created with them in the illusion of safety, yet it is not these things that make you feel safe. Rather, the familiarity you have imbued in your surroundings have generated this false sense of security. Taking time away from the familiar is literally about changing your external environment in a significant way, such as doing something unusual or perhaps something you have always wanted to experience. Another perspective is breaking through the barrier of beliefs that have constricted you in any way from being who you truly are. This is your opportunity to do some internal breaching of these thought patterns, which will open you up to different worlds and perspectives.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Mar 13, 2016


The crystals I chose for this week, starting left to right and then top and bottom, are as follows:

Pietersite – Holds the keys to the kingdom of Heaven. Links you in the everyday to your spiritual self. Stone of vision, great for meditation. Clears away the illusion of being alone. Helps you to recognize truth and walk in your truth. Helps you process old hurts and feelings. 

Rose Quartz – Stone of unconditional love and infinite peace. The most important crystal for the heart. It opens your heart, and teaches you to love yourself. This stone encourages self-forgiveness, acceptance, and invokes self-trust and self-worth.

Amethyst – Is a powerful stone for healing. It is protective and quiets the mind. It enhances intuition and inspiration, giving clarity and insight. 

Selenite – Helps you to bring light down from the higher realms into the physical body, to create personal transformation. It is a clearing stone that cleanses the aura of negative build up, both within the physical and the etheric body.

Blue Lace Agate – Helps one to reach extremely high spiritual spaces. Contains the qualities of flight, air, movement & grace. Activates the throat, heart, third-eye, and crown chakras, and helps one to enter into high-frequency states of awareness. Brings deep peace. Counteracts feelings of being judged. 

Clear Quartz – Supreme gift of Mother Earth. Opens the mind and heart to higher guidance. Amplifies and broadcasts energy. May accelerate fulfillment of one’s prayers, intensify healing or spiritual growth. 

Hematite – Acts as a grounding tool. Enhances your personal magnetism, optimism, will and courage. Fosters peace and non-aggression. Beneficial for legal situations. Protects the soul and grounds it back into the physical body. 

When I was doing reiki and preparing for doing this reading, I felt a LOT of tension in my throat. I was also very drawn to work with the Blue Lace Agate, which is a powerful throat chakra crystal. I am assuming arguments and emotions are going to arise this week. It may even just be an accumulation of stress. Be careful of what you say to others this week, we are being warned to express emotions in positive ways. From the cards I am seeing, I feel like something is definitely going to happen this week, that we perceive as negative. Look through the situation, says, no matter what your going through, look past it and focus on the positives. Focus on that which you want to attract into your life. Release/Relax implies to me, that we may stress out about this situation, and that we need to let it go. Release the situation, knowing it will find a resolution, and worry does not help.. It only attracts more reasons to worry. We must harness our patience here. That is the key. The more patience and understanding we can find for life.. for ourselves… The more we can be gentle with ourselves, others, and with our Earth and surroundings. The more we can connect to the true vibration of love. I feel like this week is like a test run for us. To practice working on self-care, taking time to release and relax, and finding our patience. Life is what you make of it. So if you see a challenge arise this week, smile, and welcome it like you knew it was coming. See through it, release and have patience, because everything is going to work out just fine! 

Look Through the Situation – You may get caught up in emotions and feel stressed or frightened. This card reminds you that life will continue long after this challenge is over. The Angels ask you to concentrate on the good things in your life and see beyond what is going on around you. One of the best ways to find resolution is by releasing the situation, and allowing yourself to feel relief. Take time to relax, and imagine how it will feel when this trying time is over. Trust the Angels hear your prayers. 

Release/Relax – You were born to be passionate, and nothing can change that. However, this card reminds you to focus on channeling your emotions and opinions in positive and constructive ways, for the sake of peace. The Angels ask you to find a creative and beneficial release for your emotions so you can move on freely. Ask the Angels to help you express yourself in healthful, beneficial ways. Make sure you’re always fair to yourself, but be fair to those around you as well.

Patience – This card signals that what you desire isn’t ready to emerge in your life just yet. This doesn’t mean it won’t come. While you may feel ready to receive this fulfillment, it’s not the right moment. Patience is one of the most important lessons one can learn. This card doesn’t mean you’ve done anything wrong. Be patient with circumstances and people in your life. The better you get at waiting (and finding happiness while your waiting!), the more happiness you’ll have.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Mar 6, 2016


I am going to start my readings by explaining more about the stones & crystals I choose to work with. I get feelings as soon as I’m picking out the stones. Starting left to right, I chose the Snow Quartz, to connect us to our light. It is a gentle, calming and soothing stone. It brings good fortune. Snow Quartz is helpful for meditation, and looking within. Snow Quartz is often used for purification on spiritual and other levels. The grey Banded Agate helps us express ourselves. It brings in great strength and grounding energy. It helps with the acceptance of self and builds confidence. It raises our level of consciousness and helps in our spiritual growth. It heals old traumas, and provides a sense of balance. Carnelian is said to attract prosperity, new resources and good luck. In the workplace, it is a crystal of ambition, drive and determination, and wards off undue pressures of co-workers or impersonal corporations with unrealistic expectations. Carnelian lends the courage needed to help overcome difficulties. Orange and red Carnelian are important crystals to use for love. Carnelian may help in rekindling passions that might have faded in an otherwise loving relationship. The green Aventurine elephant helps us to open our heart to others and trust in life. It fosters the ability to be light hearted. It cleanses the heart of fear, and soothes emotional heart pain. It calms anger and irritation. Promotes feelings of well-being and balance. It is also a stone of prosperity. The elephant spirit brings power, pride and strength. Elephants are patient, even tempered and live very long. Your spirit elephant can help you to remove obstacles out of your way and lead your life with stability, honor and happiness. The selenite pyramid is for cleansing and clearing. Selenite removes energy blocks, particularly from the physical and etheric bodies. It is a stone of truth and honesty. Selenite is a stone of powerful intuition and psychic awareness. The pyramid is a tool to amplify and focus energy. It draws out negative energy and blockages. The pyramid enhances the cleansing properties of Selenite. The Moonstone is a stone of emotional harmony, well-being and good fortune to love relationships. It shows it how it is. Helps one relax and enjoy life. Helps to fully love and appreciate others. It can help calm responses. It is very beneficial to men in opening the emotional self. So now that you know why I have chose those crystals, I will draw my cards and we will see how they correlate. 

Although I feel many people will take something from the Healer card below, and I do believe it signifies that many of you are on your journey to living your purpose as healers, I feel like this card references more about the healing and self-care we are going to require this week. This week has the potentiality to be a very good week, I have very positive feelings about it, but I also feel like we need to do our part to keep it “good”. We need to take time out to heal ourselves when we are feeling overwhelmed, so we can move forward positively. The Carnelian represented some work stress, but the crystals also represented a lot of balance and strength. So I do believe this will be a good week as long as we can overcome the perceived stresses and pressures around us, and do what you need to take care of yourself. You’ll know in the morning, is also telling us not to stress. Relax. We are told a couple of times in the cards below to let go of worry and relax. Things will work themselves out no matter what. Everything doesn’t have to be decided or put into action this very minute. Relax and meditate on any changes your are thinking of making. After you take the time to take care of yourself, and meditate on what is right for you, you will feel the answer in your soul… “Yes!!” You will find the clarity if you take the time to really process everything going on with you, and you’ll find things are much more positive than you are perceiving! Definitely yes is a great sign that things are going to move forward in a positive way! Take the action when you feel ready and guided, and for now, relax! And heal yourself. Baths and showers are great ways to cleanse your emotional body. 

Healer – This card means that you’re a healer who can help people and animals feel better. You already know how to heal in many ways and with time, you’ll learn new ways, through books, classes, and personal experiences. By drawing this card, your asked to trust in your power to heal. It isn’t you alone doing the healing work: being a healer means that you are open to Divine love coming through you – and also through people, animals or situations that can benefit from this love. Ask you Angels to help you with your healing work. You can use your healing ability on yourself too. The more you have faith in love, the more powerful are your healing abilities. Ask your Angels to increase your faith, and they will be happy to do so. 

You’ll Know in the Morning – One reason you feel so unsure right now is that your trying too hard to know the answer. The best thing to do is let go and relax. The answer is right there for you, and as soon as you stop trying so hard, you’ll know what to do. Sleep on it, and when you awaken you’ll have a better idea of the best plan of action. During your dream time, the Angels and unicorns will show you how to come up with a happy solution. They’ll show you that the power of love and light heal everything. They’ll also help you find strength to take action. So for now, don’t worry. Trust that your answer will be there for you when you wake. It may not be a complete answer, but it will guide you in the right direction. Sleep well!

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your desires more quickly by paying attention to thoughts, feelings, words or visions that repeat themselves to you. When this inner guidance asks you to take positive action, it’s important you do so. For instance, if you get strong feelings to call or go visit someone, then do it. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts and worries, and to feel secure that everything is positive. Your desires are going to happen, and probably in better than expected ways. Imagine that your dream has already come true, using your inner vision and your feelings as you do so. You just need to stay filled with faith and hope, and take action when your guided.
