Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of September 1, 2019

The crystals I am working with for the week are Hematite, Specularite and Smoky Quartz. 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.

Hematite – Helps absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. A protective stone and very grounding. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration.

Specularite – Gounding, yet has a high vibration. It helps us identify our talents and put them to best use. Dissolves negativity. Balances the meridians and Yin/Yang energy. Assists mental functioning, memory and development. Calms the mind and brings inner peace. Boosts confidence and self worth.

Smoky Quartz – Protective and grounding. It removes negativity and transforms to positive energy. Enhances survival skills and helps one reach personal and business goals. It is used in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Therefore, it is a stone that brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It fosters cooperation in groups and supports their efforts energetically. It engenders creativity by bringing imaginative efforts to fulfillment. It also works energetically to assist in prioritizing needs and wants, and brings wisdom to every day life. Excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage and inner strength. Smoky quartz is very comforting and calming, and is considered a stone of serenity. It can be helpful in relieving grief.

I took a bit of a break from my weekly readings this summer. I only did readings for those who were in need, including myself. We are into the last couple months of 3 years of treatments for my son who has leukemia. It’s been a long journey and I’ve been taking lots of time with him to just relax. I haven’t had much time with my family being home for summer, but now that everyone’s headed back to school and work, it’s the perfect time to get back to it. Especially with this lovely Virgo New Moon we just had. Virgo is very Earthy energy, and these crystals are asking us to get grounded. We need to be on stable, sturdy footing to be able to move forward efficiently. There’s a million reasons to stress and worry (believe me, I know!) but what is going to help us now is to find our surety in life, no matter what is going on around us. We have to keep trying to find the place of calm when we are triggered. We have to keep doing our best to see the bigger picture, instead of reacting in the moment on impulse. Life isn’t so bad. This moment isn’t going to bother us in a month, so why let it bother you today? We are trying to unlearn everything we thought we knew. Where you have been tough in the past, would maybe benefit you to be soft there now. Find as many ways to live a positive life as you can. There is high energy and positive vibrations now. We are seeing how talented we are and we are becoming more confident in putting ourselves out there to be seen. You have nothing to lose. Anything you feel guided to do and create, please do it. It is a great time for studying and going back to school, as there is a lot of positive mental functioning. That’s not to say things won’t get hard, but we are getting better at recognizing those negative thought patterns, and not giving into their energy. Take everything negative and transmute it into positivity! If I hadn’t discovered Spirituality because of my broken heart, I wouldn’t have had beautiful Spiritual friends and guidance to carry me through my son’s leukemia. This week, if you have a hard time, ask yourself how you can find the good. Or better yet, find ways to give out good energy in the face of adversity. It’s not always going to be easy.. and sometimes your going to get stuck and dwell. Just keep doing your best to turn things around quicker each time. You are strong, and you have what it takes. Not only that, there is so much positive energy here, within astrology and these crystals, that says there is abundance, success and prosperity on the way to us. Find the place inside you that makes you feel serene. Put your best self out there and the Universe will reward you. Let’s see what the cards say!

Shielding is about not taking on other people’s energy. This is a new season and a fresh start for a lot of your goals and dreams. Don’t let anyone interfere with your beliefs. Do what’s right for you, and feel how you want to feel. Protect yourself emotionally, physically and spiritually. To do this, visualize white light for protection surrounding you, your home, your loved ones, your community, etc. You can also use green light for healing. This is about keeping your cool even when other people test you. Can you still send love even when people seem undeserving? Can you still do your best even when the odds seem stacked? It’s important not to dwell on the negative, because it attracts more negativity. Remember, we want to transmute those energies to positive. Replace feelings of anger, sadness or frustration with love. It doesn’t mean you have to hug your enemy.. but it does mean that you can wish them well and move on with calm in your heart. When the world gets you down, you have to respond with love. This is about YOU now, and I know this can be a hard thing to grasp. We are always used to focusing our attention on others! If we can find our own happiness and stability, then our lives will be that much better, and the people around us will be better for it too. Mother Mary is a perfect representation of the Virgo “Virgin” energy. It’s about living your most honest, well-intentioned life, and doing your best. It reminds me of a quote I saw recently, “if you can love yourself even though you have flaws, you can love other people with flaws too”. Have compassion and love for everything in life. Mother Mary is also helping us to embrace our talents and abilities. Be proud of how far you’ve come, and do things to be proud of in the future. Remember what a true blessing it is to live this life!

I chose an extra message from the Universe and it couldn’t be more perfect! Have a wonderful week, and remember to choose love. 💝

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 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Aquamarine and Tree Jasper. 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. 


Bloodstone – Used to centre and ground. Helps to stay calm. Increases adaptability and organization. Heals stress and anxiety. A stone of courage. Releases blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. Enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including bringing abundance, success and prosperity.


Aquamarine – A stone of courage and fortitude that can bring great power. Assists with quick intellectual response. It brings inner peace, hope and self-love. Shields the aura, and bring Angels for their guidance and protection. An excellent crystal for meditation. Dispels anger and fear. Assists with calming communication issues. A wonderful good luck stone. 


Tree Jasper – Known as the “supreme nurturer”. It holds and supports during times of stress, bringing a sense of completeness and tranquillity. It is used to help with dream recall and shamanic journeying. It is a stone of protection and absorbs all types of negative energies. It balances and aligns the physical, mental and emotional bodies. A stone of strength, courage and determination. Stimulates creativity and imagination, encouraging ideas into action. Helps with focus, organization abilities, and motivation. 

The first thing I noticed about the crystals is that they represent Earth, Water and Blood. Very elemental energy, very symbiotic. Times may be stressful, but what’s called for now is courage and calm. It can be easy to be wrapped up in all that is going wrong, but the crystals not only are here to help us with solutions, they are also reminding us of the positive energy that comes on the other end. The abundance, the success, the luck, the power, the peace, the tranquility, the prosperity… it’s all there and it’s coming. It’s all symbiotic. Life is symbiotic. There has to be bad with the good, that’s just how it is. Get creative with solutions. Get organized. Being organized can relieve stress and anxiety. Find ways to be calm. Be adaptable. Most of all, have courage and keep moving forward in the most balanced way you possibly can. The crystals are sending you healing. You can and you will get through this period of stress, and before you know it, things are going to be be ridiculously amazing. Let’s see which cards get drawn for this week. 


The cards are just perfect. It looks like we are going through some changes in our life, maybe work related. You may be stressed out, overwhelmed or feeling like you are unsure of yourself. Just keep working and practicing. Practice makes perfect and that’s how you master a skill. You are on this path that leads to an abundant future, so don’t let the fear and stress overcome you now. Do not give up. Have courage and push through, keep practicing. Definitely Yes is a sign of everything positive that is coming in the future. It’s that confirmation that Yes, this is worth working towards and it will pay off! Believe in yourself. You are more than worthy, you are as talented as anyone else on this planet, and you can do this. Think as positively as possible! It can only help. Stressing out causes serious physical effects, and drains your energy. When you feel the stress coming on, allow yourself to feel it. It’s not going to magically go away. Just don’t allow it to bring you down. Be adaptable. When you say to yourself, “Oh my gosh, I’m feeling so stressed out and overwhelmed…” recognize that thought. Do something to care for it and turn it around. Take a time out and watch some funny videos, listen to a meditation, have a bath, get a reiki or energy healing treatment, dance, sing… do something to turn your mindset around. Gratitude exercises work well to remind yourself all you have to be thankful for. Think positive and act positive. You will get over it so much faster! The more you do it, the more it becomes a habit. Soon you will quickly notice whenever something isn’t positive! Good things are coming, positivity is the lesson and it is key here! We don’t have to be perfect by any means, there always has to be the symbiotic positive and negative. There are always times that are going to be hard. Just don’t stay there. Have courage and get back up again. Practice some more. Choose to see the beauty. Take good loving care of yourself. You truly are worth it, and wonderful things are to come if you can have courage. Practice is one way to make your dreams come true! 

Practice – Do you want to know why some people are really good at sports, music or art? They practice these skills a lot! This card is a sign that you need to practice a skill that’s important to you so that you can be really good at it. As you practice, some days you’ll feel stronger than others, yet you’ll notice that your skills improve the more you use them. So have patience with yourself and your teachers. It may take time to learn how to do something in the best way. Practice really is the best way to improve your skills. As you practice, you’ll learn new ways and methods. You’ll also enjoy yourself more as you get better and better at your new skills. So whether your dream is to paint, write, dance, sing or do crafts, practice is one way to make your dreams come true. 

Definitely Yes – What you’re asking about will definitely happen, provided that you keep your thoughts positive. You can bring about your own 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 for you to do so. For instance, if you have a strong feeling to call a certain person, then make that call. Your Angels will always guide you to take actions that have positive and healthy effects on you and others. This card asks you to set aside doubts or 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. 

Believe in Yourself – This card asks you to hold positive thoughts and feelings about yourself. If there’s something you need or want, then hold a vision of yourself doing well. Only think positive thoughts about yourself, such as “I can do it” and “I am good at this”. The more you believe in yourself, the better everything will go. If you expect success, you’ll have good results. But if you worry about failing, you won’t enjoy your experiences. You can enjoy life more if you believe in yourself. If someone else tells you that you won’t succeed, then picture a big “X” through their words to cancel them. Don’t let someone else’s words take away your belief! Instead, act in a way that makes them change their mind and see what you can really do. Belief means making a decision such as “Yes I can do this!” When you clearly decide to do it, instead of just trying, you approach the situation with confidence. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing something new. What matters is that you believe that you can do it. Each time you do something new, you learn and grow. And you’ll thank yourself for learning that you can do anything you truly believe you can do.

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

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of December 11, 2016

The crystals I am working with for this week are Petrified Wood, Tiger’s Eye, Smoky Quartz, African Turquoise, and Desert Rose. 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. 


Petrified Wood – Good for grounding and stabilizing emotions. Calms survival-based fears. It helps one be practical. A stone of business success. Petrified wood is a good stone for general protection. Physically, it is used to heal bones, backaches, skin and hair. Petrified wood is also used for past life regressions because of its inherent link with the past.


Tiger’s Eye – A stone of protection that is also very stabilizing and grounding. It enhances integrity, willpower, self-confidence, practicality and correct use of power. Boosts personal power. It is a stone that enhances good luck, and brings prosperity, often in the form of money. A very protective stone which is especially protective during travel. 


Smoky Quartz – A protective and grounding stone. It brings physical and psychic protection. It is also an excellent stone for protection from negative energy, as it removes negativity and negative energy of any kind and transforms it into positive energy. Enhances survival instincts, and can help one reach personal and business goals. It is also used in assisting in making wishes come true by grounding their essence in reality. Thus, it is a stone that brings abundance, prosperity, and good luck. It brings creativity to life. Brings wisdom. Is excellent for elevating moods, overcoming negative emotions, and relieving depression. Relieves stress, fear, jealousy, anger and other negative emotions by transforming them into positive energies. It is a helpful stone for enhancing and encouraging courage and inner strength. It is very comforting and calming, and can be considered a stone of serenity. Helpful to relieve grief. Used to treat many different problems associated with the lower torso including kidneys, abdomen, pancreas, reproductive organs, menstrual cramps, fertility issues. 


African Turquoise – The ‘Stone of Evolution’, brings encouragement for growth, development and positive change. Opens the mind to new ideas, new possibilities and new existence. It is a stone that brings structure, balance and prosperity. A stone that hands over a key to new life with its offerings. This is a stone that awakens the soul to its intended purpose, encouraging the being to make positive impression while gaining and giving positive wisdom.


Desert Rose – A stone of the mind, as well as an Angelic stone. It is said to bring mental ability and clarity, as well as perception of all kinds, including intuitive perception. Is used in healing to quiet worries and still the mind from distractions and disruptions. Said to be helpful for the spine and the skeleton in general, and for proper alignment of the spine. 

There is a very common theme for this week. Stay grounded and practical. Try to remain calm and not worry, as you are protected. You will survive this week, and there is prosperity to come. We are continuing to learn and grow, learning how to overcome obstacles and remain positive. Learning how to quiet our mind and open it to new possibilities. Keep working on being positive, especially when things get tough. Turn those negatives into positives. Keep your mind clear, calm and open at work, and you will be very successful. It’s funny because I have been suffering from back, hip and leg pain lately, and I feel a bit better today. I do not doubt these crystals are here to heal, any stomach or back issues you may have been experiencing lately. Let’s see which cards hold the message for this week.


The cards are telling me we are definitely protected. We are not alone. We are always protected by our Angels, Guides, Spirits and many other types of beings. The signs are around us always. It’s funny, I just put up a blog post earlier today about appreciating and tuning into guidance we receive, and here are the cards telling us again to ask for signs and watch for them. The cards are telling us to connect with our Angels, Guides and Spirits, by expressing ourselves and asking for signs to guide us. When you connect in this way you experience more and more signs, and become more connected to the universe. We are part of a collective whole, here to help evolve Planet Earth. Notice the two depictions of the stars and sky, the one Angel has her head down, but if she looked up to the universe she would see the signs, and know she is not alone. Keep your head up. Express yourself in healthy ways to mitigate stress and clear your mind this week. Try to express yourself instead of keeping emotions bottled up. This could mean speaking your mind from a place of positive emotion, but also can be working out, meditating, doing something creative, spending time alone or with others. There are many like-minded people out there for you to connect with. Whatever you feel you need to do to express yourself and release emotions. Expression is about taking back your personal power, and knowing that nobody can take this from you. Remember whenever you are feeling down this week, that there are ways to turn your feelings around, and you truly are never alone. There is always a balance, life can’t always be perfect. There may be tough moments, but there are good ones too! You can manifest them quicker by seeing the positive in negative situations, by recognizing the lessons. This is how we evolve. You will see the rewards and should be very lucky this week! Watch for the signs! 

Expression – This card guides you to speak your mind. After all, that’s one of the reasons you are here on this Earth. For so long, people have not spoken up for themselves. As a result, humanity has lived under the tyrannical control of those with power. Now is the time for change, and you are one of the spiritual warriors in charge of initiating that shift. Always speak your mind, but also be aware of how others react to you. Ask the Angels to guide you to communicate in ways that allow you to be heard. If you can express yourself in a manner people can relate to, your concerns and opinions will be much better received. 

You Are Not Alone – As you grow older, you’ll realize that no one on this planet truly knows what he or she is doing – we all just get by as best we can. This card reminds you that you’ve got plenty of help and companionship available to you. Never before have so many people come into a lifetime with the shared Divine purpose of rewriting the script for daily human life. Your mission is so very important, and there are literally millions of other people in this world having very similar experiences. Ask the Angels to help guide you to like-minded people who can relate to you. It will soon become apparent to you that you are an integral part of one of the most significant movements in human history. 

Ask For A Sign – If you’re feeling stuck or confused, then you need a sign to point you in the best direction. Signs are some of the most interactive and consistent messages the Angels can bring. When you regularly ask for them, you’re shown constant reminders that you’re on the right path, and receive clear guidance to help keep you there. You may feel disconnected from other people and wonder why you can’t relate to them. Ask the Angels to show you a plain and recognizable sign that your wish/purpose/dream/hope/desire is relevant and possible, and to let you know the next step to take. You will be very pleased with the outcome, as Heaven will validate and guide you clearly. All you have to do is ask!
