Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 12, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Smoky Quartz, Picture Jasper, Tigers Eye and Mookaite. 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 crystals to you. 


Smoky Quartz – A very protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It removes negativity and transforms it to positive. Enhances survival skills and helps one reach personal and business goals. Used to make wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Therefore, it brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It fosters cooperation in groups and supports their efforts energetically. It also assists in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life. Excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Enhances and encourages courage and inner strength. Smoky quartz is comforting and calming, and is considered a stone of serenity. It can be helpful in relieving grief.


Picture Jasper – The swirling patterns and banding that adorn Picture Jasper are said to be images from the past that Mother Earth is willing us to see. It shows hidden messages from the past as well as hidden thoughts, fears, and hopes. It gives us the chance to see the bigger picture and move forward with courage and confidence. Use this stone to begin a new business venture without the fear of failure. A stone of creative visualization, it can be an aide in bringing your goals and dreams into reality. 


Tigers Eye – A stone of protection that is also stabilizing and grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. It can also help one see clearly without illusion. 


Mookaite – Encourages the desire for new experiences and helps to keep a balance between external activities and the internal response. It imparts a deep calm while encouraging versatility. A stone of strength and decision making. It is said to shield the wearer from difficult situations. Helps us to assess our problems and make appropriate decisions.

We had a beautiful full moon last night! I can already feel we are on an upswing. Spring is coming! I feel like since the last full moon that things have been a little like a roller-coaster emotionally for me. I am glad I am feeling better today and feel like the energy is moving in a more positive direction. I made a huge decision to join Younique Products as an Independent Distributor (Don’t worry, I’m mostly mentioning this as it has to do with the reading! But if you wanna try this awesome makeup or pursue a great opportunity, join me here! https://youniqueproducts.com/carriegallop) I have been curious about the products for a long time, and have been putting off splurging on new makeup. With my son fighting cancer, I really needed to pursue an opportunity from home, so I can stay with him as long as possible. After talking to friends who were also holding off on trying Younique, I decided to take the plunge and make a go of it! A friend I know does it, and it has changed her life and her level of confidence. She is very inspiring and I know if she can do it, there is no reason I can’t! I am also going to getting back into doing Angel Card readings for others, so if your interested in purchasing a reading, let me know! These are big steps for me, as I always choose to stay in my comfort zone, to do what’s easy. Work for someone else and get the same pay check every week. Do what someone else tells me to do everyday. I want to change that, not only for me to be able to stay with my son, but to change the way I look at earning a living. I am worth so much more! I am so glad the crystals are here supporting these decisions, and telling of the success and abundance to come. I AM moving forward in my life with courage and confidence! I love my Smoky Quartz Point. For me, it is a Crystal that directs a ton of energy, and I have very intense and vivid dreams when I sleep with it beside my bed. Seeing all of its qualities today reminds me how much I love this crystal. It will help us transmute negative energy into positive, it’s going to comfort us and calm us, helps us attain our goals, and assist us to make all our wishes come true. This week, we are working, we are grinding, we are staying versatile and flexible. We are being strong. Things may not always be easy, but the mookaite will help us recognize problems and mitigate them. We are going to see clearly and move forward confidently. Again, we are reminded abundance, luck and prosperity is on the way! Keep a smile on your face knowing so much good stuff is coming in life!!! Let’s see what cards want to accompany this message. 


I was guided to choose 2 more traditional tarot cards and an Animal Spirit message for the week. To be honest, the Seagull Card scared me a little when I saw it, I even wanted to put it back!! After tuning into it, I realize it’s not forewarning us that we need healing, it’s telling us where we have been to get where we are now. We don’t have to be perfect to have come a long way! It’s telling me that we have been through the rough seas. We are now sitting on the shore, watching the waves calm down and being soothed to our soul. We are watching the seagulls fly free. We are truly healing, deep down in a place where we might not even be consciously aware of. I’m sure the full moon last night assisted with this too, bringing soothing waves of healing and release. The Mookaite Crystal and the Seagull feel very calm to me, like we are finding the calm within us and are able to handle whatever comes our way. We have learned so much from all the storms we have weathered. With all this new business energy, you can be assured things are still going to be coming your way. All you gotta do it deal with it! Don’t stress about it, just handle it. Keep moving forward as best as possible, creating better habits. Like the little old man that doesn’t let anything ruin his good mood, all day, even through the crappiest stuff, he still smiles and finds a reason to joke and laugh, because he’s alive, and life is beautiful, vibrant and colourful. Things don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful, to be appreciated. Life is too short not to appreciate it. If you feel the need to vent or express emotions, make sure to do so, but ensure it is with someone you can trust… the VII of Swords card is suggesting to be wary of who you rely on. It may be better to journal or release emotions when you are alone. When you are strong, and have faith, you know you are never truly alone. The crystals remind us that spirit is always there assisting and comforting you. You truly are strong all on your own, so know this and trust this. The Ace of Wands is perfect confirmation that now is the time to pursue career and business goals and to chase our dreams. Not only will this bring us success, but it can benefit and inspire those around us. The VII of Swords card is a representation of our fears. We are worried the swords are gonna come flyin’ at us. Putting yourself out there can be hard. It’s easier just to avoid everything, and let life pass us by. The truth is, you can’t lose what isn’t yours. Everything happens for a reason. Things that fall away from your life are just part of the natural process, part of a never ending cycle. Yeah, it may hurt… but it doesn’t define you. We let go of things to make way for new things. Face the swords, knowing they can’t hurt you. Even if other people let you down, you can’t be hurt any more than you allow yourself to. You have this strength!!! It’s all about how you choose to live. Have courage and face those swords. Pursue your dreams, handle your business, and your gonna find so much success and happiness! 


Ace of Wands – Now is the time for sending out resumes, starting a new enterprise, or beginning a journey. Your strength uplifts those who lack the resources to solve their problems alone. 


VII of Swords – Making plans becomes problematic. Friends let you down. Don’t rely too much on others. You can’t lose what’s not yours to begin with. Get everything in writing. 


Seagull – The emotional sea that’s hovering just below your consciousness is a well of feelings that needs to be acknowledged and expressed. Expressing emotions doesn’t mean indulging in them compulsively or creating drama around them. If there are tears, let them simply be tears and allow them to flow. Cry or laugh as much as you need to. Explore these feelings by sharing them with someone you trust, or write them in a journal, paying particular attention to the sensations in your body. These sensations are clues to the layers of emotions that are just below the surface of your awareness. By either talking or writing them down, you bring them into your awareness, find relief, and create an opportunity to release them. Don’t let this be a theatrical exercise, one where you act or try to force yourself to feel something you’re not. Make sure that you include a good dose of humour from time to time, particularly if you’re dealing with darker and scarier emotions. It’s not necessary to cleanse that emotional and psychic scars that remain from earlier experiences too frequently, but now is the time to do so. Should you find yourself starting to get lost in the whirlpool of traumatic memory, change the scenery by physically moving or intentionally distracting yourself in someway. It isn’t necessary to cure yourself of the feelings associated with these memories all in one setting; instead, simply relieve some of the pressures that lurk below the surface. Associations: Observant; Swift; Opportunistic; Carefree; Versatile; Resourceful; Intelligence; Scavenging; Communication; Sociable; Protective; Messenger; Emotional; Respect; Fairness

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of February 19, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Sunstone, Goldstone and Aragonite. 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 crystals to you. 


Sunstone – Dispels fears and phobias. A leadership stone. Used to decrease stress and lift depression. Brings good luck and abundance, and turns negative energy into positive. It is said to be helpful in contacting animal or spirit guides. Used to increase physical and sexual energy and heal depression, phobias and stress related illness.


Goldstone – Helps attain goals. Helps to stay calm and stabilize emotions. It is an energy generator and deflects unwanted energies, making it useful for protection. Revitalizes the energy field. 


Aragonite – Increases energy, especially with prayer. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. Diminishes anger and relieves stress. It is helpful to those who need to release attachments and issues from the past. A good Earth healer, it encourages conservation of Earth’s precious resources. A grounding stone that creates a deeper connection to planet Earth.  

I wasn’t sure which Angel Card deck I was going to use today, and I thought, I need to do an Animal Spirit Guide or Nature cards today. The crystals I chose are confirming that energy. They want us to connect to our Animal and Spirit Guides, and they want us to connect to the Earth. We need to deepen our connection to our Earth Mother. We have all grown from her and live on her land. We must take care of our home. The crystals make me feel like we’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, letting fears creep into our thoughts. The crystals are here to heal issues from the past, diminish the anger, stress and depression, and dispel our fears. They are going to help turn any negativity into positive energy. Not only will they boost our confidence to help us attain our goals, it looks like we have luck and abundance on our side as well! Let’s see what the cards say for the week. 


 I decided to pull two cards from the Earth Magic deck and one from the Animal Spirit Guide deck, both by Steven D. Farmer. The Winter Solstice card represents a time where we need to go within and reflect on our lives and find who we truly are. A time to reflect on everything we have learned and how that is going to help us in the future. The crystals are going to help us heal any past issues and transmute anything negative into positive. It is a reminder that we always must go through periods of darkness and times of quiet, but that the sun will return. It always does. Good times are coming. It is a positive time where we are getting ready to unfold, to grow into ourselves more confidently and fully. Our paths are going to unfold before our eyes. There are always going to be bumps in the road, and the Boar reminds you to face those problems head on. There is nothing you can’t handle. The cards and crystals want you to have confidence!! It’s a positive and abundant time, and you will emerge victorious! 

Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but it is also the longest night. The world is very still and the land dormant. Various “Festivals of Light” are celebrated, and have been for thousands of years, serving as a reminder that the light will indeed return. Throughout many cultures there are tales describing this time as the birth of the archetypal Sun King – including the Christian story of Jesus’s birth – representing the hope of renewal from the darkest period of the solar cycle. This image portrays a simple yet powerful representation of the winter solstice. We see a clear reflection of the snowy woods on the still, frozen waters of the lake. The blue tint drapes the scene with an even greater sense of quiet and solace, inviting us to walk very softly lest we disturb the intense yet gentle grace of this scene. The reflection of the trees on the frozen lake reminds us that this is a time for us to go inside – to both our physical shelter as well as our internal world – and there contemplate the season that has passed, the season that is, and the seasons yet to come. Review the past year and ask yourself what the most important lessons you have had to learn are, what you have accomplished, and what dreams and visions you want to manifest in the upcoming year. Whether it has been a relatively smooth ride or a challenging series of events, acknowledge your experience as being the work of Source, no matter what your judgments, fears, or joys are. Honour whatever has happened over the previous several months with gratitude and forgiveness. Then let it go. Allow yourself some solitude so you can spend some quiet, slow time in reflection. Once you feel complete, reflect on your present life, especially focusing on what you are grateful for. When you are finished, consider what is to come – all the different possibilities and potential that exist before you. Allow your imagination to roam without limitation or ambition, and see what shows up. Notice how you feel in your body with whatever scenario plays out in your mind. These are previews of that which is gestating, and can manifest and grow when cared for properly. Patience and stillness is called for here, for just as the Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 

Lotus Flower (Unfoldment) – The lotus flowers sits upon one of its leaves, having risen to the surface as the sun – held in the hand of God -invites it upward to the light. This unique plant is rooted in the mud and muck at the bottom of a body of water, it’s stem reaching up to the surface, where the leaves rest quietly. At night the flower closes and sinks below the surface, only to rise with the daylight and once again gradually unfold it’s petals, it’s stem extending above the waterline three feet or more. What we learn from this amazing plant is how our own spiritual path unfolds and opens to the light, then at times gently fold in on itself for proper rest when the daylight fades. This period is just as necessary as the growth, for it allows the plant to integrate what it has gained in nourishment during the day. It’s also just as important that it is rooted, and it is yet another miracle of Nature that something so exquisitely beautiful is formed from the mud and silt at the water’s bottom. Your spiritual unfoldment is occurring at all times whether or not you are aware of it. It is inevitable as long as you put your trust in the hands of the Creator, the one who holds the light. Like the Lotus, your soul is always reaching for the light to fulfill it’s karmic destiny, but even in that process there are periods of darkness and times to rest. It is a natural cycle, one that cannot truly be coerced or halted. It has an innate rhythm of its own, one that is unique to the being that is you. You do not need to strive or be driven by spiritual ambition. It does no good to try to force growth upon yourself – or others, for that matter. Allowing is the key here. Allow the place in you that naturally wants to follow the light to do so while recognizing that even when you have complete faith, you will face challenges and, occasionally, suffering. Your steady faith and love will guide you on your journey of returning to the light.

Boar (Pig) – Whatever difficulties you’re experiencing now, whether with a relationship, career path, or some other concern, dig in and rummage around until you discover how to solve the problem. Then take immediate action to remedy it. Every time you confront adverse situations in this way, you’ll be uprooting those elements in your life that appear to be obstacles to fulfilling your purpose. Life can sometimes be very uncooperative with your rational mind’s sense of order, and will at times even block your demands of how events or experiences should unfold. If you’re living on Earth, you’re going to get your feet muddy sometimes, but it’s no call for panic, crisis, or drama. Instead, take a couple of deep breathes and view whatever problem you encounter as simply something that needs to be taken care of. As the saying goes, there really are no problems – only creative possibilities. Once you have emerged victorious – which means that you either conquered your problem or changed your thinking about how you initially perceived the situation – you’ll experience a surge of power and confidence. Remember that your power originates from Source, expressed through you and as you. When you vanquished the illusion of the situation being a problem, you’ll not only feel a greater sense of relief and freedom, but you also open the way for your heart, mind, and soul to be more in alignment with the Will of Spirit. When you operate from that perspective, you can overcome anything! Associations: Courage; Hospitality; Earthiness; Self-reliance; Protection; Prosperity; Organization; Fierceness; Uprooting; Cleanliness; Determination; Balance; Security; Tenacity

My Poetry – Voyage

Sailing the sea 

Through an ocean of stars

So very close

Yet so very far

Can’t you feel my heart cry

Dripping from the sky

Blinded by the light 

That illuminates my sight

Navigating the right  

Finding my way through the night
