Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 10, 2019

The crystals I am working with for the week are Dioptase, Ruby on Matrix and Peacock Ore. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystal to you.

Dioptase – Encourages compassion and forgiveness. Encourages you to be aware of the abundance and richness in your life. Helps you to live in the moment, and access past life memories. It will help you more forward if you’ve been feeling stuck, by helping you let go of the past. Help you to find your freedom. Helps you release the things that hold you back from living a full life. Helps you let go of undesirable emotions, such as anger, jealousy and hatred. Powerful for those overcoming abuse or trauma.

Ruby on Matrix – Helps you find new paths in life and gives you the energy you need to walk them. Helps to transform one’s life to a more desirable state. Useful when we need some help to find a new path, a new approach, or in any quest to gain that which we desire but do not yet possess. Helps you to realize love within yourself and express emotion.

Peacock Ore – Enhances inner knowing, strengthens perception and helps you trust what you see. It is also a protective stone, good for many kinds of protection, including protection from illness.

When I look at these crystals.. the energy I feel is… rough. Things have been cold, hard and tough…. dull and dreary. It’s the people who can see beneath the surface and appreciate the little things, that see the gems hidden with the hard rock. There is beauty and abundance within all the hard times we experience. There is always an unseen gift or benefit. Finding ways to look at the bright side is how we shift our perspective. The Ruby is no less a Ruby, just because it is stuck within the rock… it is still beautiful Ruby.. waiting to be uncovered and appreciated. Have compassion for yourself for everything that isn’t seemingly going “right”, and instead, choose to focus on everything that is. Recognize how truly beautiful you are, and what a gift it is to walk on this Earth. I have been watching One Strange Rock on Netflix, and I always love a good reminder of what an extraordinary gift it is for us to be alive and experiencing this reality. Make sure you don’t waste it. Find your freedom and experience everything you can. Live your life to the fullest, as much as you possibly can. This isn’t about doing extravagant things, it’s about appreciating this moment right now, whatever you are doing. How can you make the best of it? We are still working through our past traumas, and we are almost there… we can sense the freedom. Keep letting go of the past and seeing yourself as being healed. Forgive yourself. You can’t afford to hold yourself back anymore. There is so much more to life, that is longing for you. You have so many wonderful things to accomplish and experience. The Ruby on Matrix is giving you energy and helping you to recognize all the new paths that lay ahead. It is helping us to transform our lives into a more desirable state… and the key to that is to truly love ourselves… to see what you truly deserve. To love our lives and all that we are so blessed to experience. Trust in yourself and what is right for you, and make your way to that reality. It’s been tough, but we are getting there. Spring is on the way and that is sure to bring a burst of vitality! No matter what is going on for you, try to make the best of it. Let’s see what the cards say.

I know I say it every week.. but these cards are so perfect. DNA is all about creation.. about life, death and rebirth. It’s about the never ending cycle of life that we are blessed to be a part of during this time. Every thing you do matters. Every choice you make has a repercussion. Yes, the weight of that is quite heavy… I immediately think of everywhere I have gone wrong in my life. You can hang on to the past and focus on what went wrong, but it’s never going to change anything, and it takes away from the joy of this moment. You have a choice to make a change. What are you missing when you look at those experiences? Yes, I’ve had a lot of hard times in my life.. but in the grand scheme of things.. they have brought me to who I am today. My struggles have blessed my life and allowed me to seek my Spirituality, which has changed my life so incredibly much for the better. There is so many positives. Focus on them. It’s ok to forgive myself for not knowing better, and to allow myself to heal that wound. When you can integrate the lesson, and the see positive aspect, that’s where you can unlock healing and forgiveness. That’s when you understand the full circle and see the big picture. God doesn’t want us to live here in misery. Life is a gift… open it and embrace it. Let the old you die away, and rebirth into your full power. The Change in Direction Card is so cute.. it wants us to look at life from a newborn perspective. See things in ways you didn’t before. Allow your heart to be open to love and life. The stork is showing you the map of all the pathways…. they are endless… and the beauty is that YOU get to decide what it is you want. This life is what you make of it. Follow your heart and happiness, treat yourself like a child and allow yourself to feel joy. I know my readings are all about positivity… and people hate hearing that all the time. I understand we need to embrace all of our emotions.. but the more we can focus on what’s positive, the more we can shift our perspective, and affect the karma we put out into the world. God wants us to embrace positivity as much as we can. What does it help to insist on wading in negativity? The less we focus on the negative; the more positive we see. Six of Winter is confirming that positive changes are on the way! We are going to feel relief from the stress we have been experiencing lately. Here in Canada, warmer temps are finally on the way, and after this last month of extreme cold, I think we are all ready for some warmer weather. Get out there and appreciate where you live. Appreciate Mother Earth. Appreciate how your body serves you. Appreciate how your mind co-creates this reality. The challenging times are going to fade away, into a sunnier horizon and happier shores. Leave the troubles behind and look to the future with

wild abandon. It’s going to be amazing.

Blog Post – My beautiful son and his battle with Leukemia 

Just so you all know, my Angel Card readings will be on hold for a while. My 3 year old son was recently diagnosed with High-Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. We are doing everything we can for him, and I do not plan to leave his side until he is able to leave this hospital, which will be at least another few weeks. He has 7 months of intensive treatments and 3 years of ongoing treatments at home and in hospital after that. He has a high risk of infection, and is going to require to be closely monitored for a long time, basically the rest of his life. He has a long road to recovery, but we are just thankful we caught it when we did, as the Leukemia cells were rapidly dividing and it could have become dire within a matter of weeks. If you would like to donate, here is the link to our Go Fund Me page, https://www.gofundme.com/colebaptiste . Your prayers and donations are greatly appreciated, and will not be taken for granted. 
Thank you all so much for your support and love during this time.

2014 in Review – So proud of my blog!

I am so proud of how far my photography and blog has come this past year. I know someone is guiding me to put my work out there! Although my stats could probably be a little better, and I could probably post a little more frequently, I am still beyond proud of my work, and so proud of all the different countries where people are viewing my work from. If you want to check out my year in review, the link is below. Thanks everyone for viewing and following! Hoping to post some new reviews and photos soon!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.

MOMS!!! Must read this! Protect your kids from lice!

I just wanted to post a quick blog about Ladibugs shampoo and conditioner. This shampoo is chemical free and made of high quality ingredients and natural oils and works to deter lice from being attracted to the hair. We got it as a result of our son picking up lice at school and passing it around the house. My sister works at a salon and ordered me some of these products. At first I didn’t like the smell at
all, and found it to be a little drying on my long hair. The more I have continued to use it on my child, (and he doesn’t seem to mind the smell!) the more I have come to like it! The shampoo is very eucalyptus smelling and conditoner is more minty. It smells very natural, and the bottle seems to be lasting and going a long way. As a mom, I had no idea I could use something to deter lice, so I felt the need to share this information! Might be something to try before your child ends up with lice!

15 Tips for Relaxation – How real people, and especially moms, find relaxation and stress relief

Image

This is exactly how I feel when I go to the dentist these days, something I hated before is now like a mini vacation, Lol. Frustration is an emotion I seem to be struggling with a lot lately. I find it hard to find time for myself and for stress relief techniques, heck, I feel like I am lucky to get through the week and keep up with just the regular things. Every now and then, I find a moment to do something that I am passionate about or that makes me feel good and relieves stress. Writing this blog right now after my children just went to bed, and before my boyfriend gets home from work, is one of those little things that bring me happiness and feels right, and lets me have a moment to myself to process my thoughts and feelings. I wanted to see what other people, and especially moms, had to say about their favorite things they look forward to, that bring them happiness and stress relief. Here are what some people said, and they are in no particular order:

1. Getting hair and/or nails done

2. Hot bubble bath – The Stress Relief Bath Soak Salts, especially the Eucalyptus Spearmint scent from Bath and Body Works are amazing and the best I have tried!! They will relax you! Also, I will never live without a Jacuzzi tub again.

3. Exercise – Walking, running, yoga… – I sure love my Wii Fit. The best yoga for me.

4. Watching something funny – Funny videos online, Ellen, Americas Funniest Home Videos, Ridiculousness, anything that gets you chuckling.

5. Shop online, or go out shopping and buy yourself a treat, such as clothing or something that makes you feel good and new.

6. Writing down your feelings and throwing them away/burning it.

7. Go for a drive – And rock out! Go find somewhere beautiful to take pictures or just to enjoy! A good suggestion was to take the kids out of the city and find some horses and cows for them to look at! Great idea Tonielle!!!

8. Get a coffee

9. Take photos, paint, make music or make a collage vision board – Do anything creative!

10. Have a visit with another mom and kids, and have a treat like a snack or coffee!

11. Get a massage

12. Focus on your breathing/Meditate

13. Lay in bed and read

14. Check out vacations or take a virtual vacation online – Thank you Google earth!

15. Visit family

As you can see, there are some great ideas, and definitely some things I would like to try to do more of. Thank you so much to everyone who gave me feedback and input, it is greatly appreciated! I hope you liked my blog. Thank you for stopping by!

Losing it

Well, it took me a whole hour from the time I posted my 1st blog until I had a frustration meltdown. I don’t know how you moms out there do it, this cleaning the whole kitchen 4 times a day, amongst a million other things, is going to drive me to the crazy house. I can’t help it I like things neat, the same things that drive me crazy to do, are the things that make me feel more sane and relaxed when they are done. Funny how that works. I recently went to a psychic group session, and had a reading. Which was followed up by another reading the following week (this is a whole other post!). The message being brought to me was a constant reminder to take care of self, to ask my partner for help and delegate duties before I am erupting like a volcano, and believe me, I erupt. Delegate duties. Seems easy enough. Until your blue in the face from asking and reminding and staring a mess in the face until they are scheduled to complete the task at hand. I finally get my toddler down for his nap, my boyfriend is out at the movies with our 7 year old, and I am thankful it is my time for peace and quiet and a little relaxation. It’s amazing how fast 2 hours can go. I walk into the kitchen and it’s like the sound of a horror movie inside my head. But I just completely cleaned this kitchen yesterday? I just don’t understand, as I stand there in disbelief, staring at the mass of half empty bottles and drinks, dishes everywhere and crumbs encompassing the countertop. Here we go again. Can I leave this for now and come back to it? Something inside won’t let me. I know if I leave it now, it will bother me and gross me out until I do get around to doing it. Do any of you moms out there find your OCD works against you and you find yourself doing everything because your the one it matters so much to? I know my boyfriend enjoys a clean house, but it’s amazing how he has the ability to overlook such things and move on with his day. I feel like Cinderella most days, and i’ve been feeling extra desperate since a few things that took place in my life over the past year. It feels so hard some days to press on. I feel like heading for the hills, running as far away as I can, but in reality, I know I could never leave my kids, and I will miss them incredibly if I ever do get a chance to go anywhere. I have never been on an airplane in my life. If I love my kids and family so much, how can I feel so much stress and rage over these little things? How do I actually change my thinking to be more positive, and not feel like I need to run away? Why can’t I just do my mom duties without feeling resentment? How do I move past my expectations and into a place where I can accept every situation with ease? These are things I hope to find out as I work on my blogs. Stay tuned to find out real ways people like to relax and de-stress!
