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 August 20, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Rhodochrosite, Shattuckite and Mangano Calcite. 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. 

Rhodochrosite – Dispels insecurities, increases love, power, and improves self-worth. Enhances dreams and imagination. Helps us to face problems in a positive way without avoidance or denial. It balances and enhances love on all levels. It balances the mental and emotional processes. 

Shattuckite – A strong psychic communication stone. Facilitates a stronger connection with your Spirit guides, teachers, and loved ones that have passed on. Assists in the development of psychic visions, intuition, Mediumship and channeling. Assists with reconciliation and renewal. Used to channel information, particularly from extra-terrestrials, and is used for automatic writing. It is said to calm the mind and create harmony.

Mangano Calcite – Connects you to the Angelic Realm. Sometimes called the “Reiki Stone”, due to its healing capabilities. It amplifies energy in a gentle but powerful way. It is a calming stone that eases and heals the heart chakra. It fills the heart with universal and self-love. It offers hope for the best in all things. It is a nurturing stone that helps us take care of ourselves. It enables us to accept love and have self-love, and act with loving behaviours. It is a high powered stress reliever that relieves anxiety, stress and  tension. It heals trauma. It is used to remove fears of all kinds and reduces nightmares.

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been dreaming like crazy the last few nights! I also noticed myself daydreaming yesterday, so it’s funny to see that with the Rhodochrosite. There have been no nightmares either, so thank you Mangano Calcite! 😋 Everything I am seeing from the crystals is very aligned with the astrology and readings I have watched for this week. If you haven’t seen Nicole Oman on Facebook, I suggest you check out her weekly readings and specials. She is amazing and is some of the best guidance I receive. We are going into the Solar Eclipse tomorrow, and this is where we have the choice to face our issues, and decide how we are going to handle our lives going forward. This is a new starting point for us, and it’s all about how we handle it. Are you going to run and hide from the shadows? Or are you going to face them, and embrace them! Appreciate them, for their own beauty and relevance. The universe wants to communicate with us! It is begging us to find our self-love, so we can have the energy and vibration we need to communicate and evolve with the universe. The crystals are helping us manage some of the stress, tension and anxiety we may have going on. What should we do? Take care of yourself. Truly love yourself. Treat yourself. Make yourself laugh. Enjoy something just for you. Live your life. See yourself and your future in the most positive light, and choose to see that going forward. The time is now to move toward that new you! Your spiritual gifts and connection are awaiting you. Choose love always, and you will see it resonate in positive ways in your life. You don’t have to be perfect! Just do your best to make the most loving choices and behaviours that you can! If you are moving in a positive direction, it will continue to spin off in more positive ways. There is no reason to live in fear.. it just pulls you under… we are here to love! And the universe will fully support you when you live a positive life of love. Let’s see what the cards say! 

I’m gonna switch it up a bit this week, and choose from a few different decks. The By The Book card is asking you… What do you want for your future? Do you want to go by the book? Conform to other people’s expectations of you? Or do you want to blow that out of the water and start on your own path of freedom? If the Universe works on the Law of Attraction, then what has been working for you? What ways should you stick to what’s working? What makes you happiest? What makes you feel accomplished? What hasn’t been working? What pulls you down and throws you off? What changes can you make to positively impact your life going forward? I also feel like the book reference is a reminder for us.. to write stuff down, to make a plan. You want to workout regularly? Meditate regularly? Put it on your schedule and do it. Get yourself organized so your future can be that much smoother and more successful. There is gonna be lots of things coming at us, so it would be a good idea to get organized so you can cope with the stress better. As Nicole Oman said today, go about your day and do what you have to do, just do it with joy. The Protection Message of the By The Book card is truly perfect… Be authentically you with no regrets. You have special gifts that await you, that the mainstream might not fully understand yet, but that doesn’t give you the right to shy away from your true power… From what you know as truth. Greatness awaits you… You need to let go of the fear and stop conforming. This is a time of transformation, and I love how it says, “your intuition will lead you through the darkness”, how perfect for the eclipse!! Take today to think about what you really want, so you can make your plans, decisions and declarations on Monday during the eclipse. Weigh all your options and think about the best ways to move forward. Claim your right to be fully you, and be full of love. There is a lot of things going on right now, and they may be quite challenging and stressful. The Eight of Spring reminds us that we can successfully deal with any challenges that come our way. If we plan well, the multi-tasking can be that much easier. This card is so beautiful, as it represents all the wonderful things that are coming! Yes, we may have to juggle and be a bit stressed, but it is going to be because of all the amazing things happening in our lives. There are going to be many wonderful opportunities, so keep the positive energy flowing, and handle what comes your way. The crystals and Angels are helping us heal from any stress, and anxiety that we are experiencing from all this. Keep having faith and trust in the Universe, trust that the light will always return. Trust in the dawn. Beautiful light is coming, to shine on you so brightly. There is no turning back now. Just remember to love yourself and be positive, and the future will be all the more amazing. ❤️

By The Book – 

Essential Meanings: Abiding by social rules; conformity; respecting cultural or family customs; universal laws.

The Oracle’s Message: The Universe works within the structure of Divine laws and principles that provides a framework for human experience and evolution. The law of abundance, the law of prayer, the law of karma, the law of attraction, the law of thought, the law of compensation, and the law of nature are only a few that are known. These principles create perfect order and operate with a kind of precision beyond human understanding. Even revolution has its place in universal law. Human beings, in turn, have their own laws and customs that vary from culture to culture and family to family. Laws keep social order and govern behavior, reflecting an instinctive understanding that harmony is important. This is the time to learn these laws and conform to them, rather than being the rebel and flouting them. When this card appears, submit to structure and follow the rules even if they seem to make no sense. Release resistance, for universal laws will correct any disharmony. Open your eyes to those universal laws, and it will be easier to go by the book at this time.

Relationship Message: Getting along with others entails understanding and respecting who they have become as a result of their environment, culture, and experience. Find the middle ground that allows the relationship to flourish while honouring the individuality of the other person. Play things by the book instead of trying to break the rules or pressure others to conform to the way you want to do them. Your connection will deepen as a result.

Prosperity Message: At this time, you can expect a return on your investment. Whatever you have pursued – be it a dream you’ve long cherished, a skill you’ve cultivated, or a service your called to – will come to you if you’re willing to go by the book. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel to be successful. Follow in the footsteps of others who have already achieved the things you’re striving for. You can learn a lot by observing the structures that are already working. Your creative projects and commitment to prosperity are in alignment with the needs of the world, but impatience may tempt you to cut corners to get there more quickly. Stick with what you know works, and you will attract abundance.

Protection Message: Now is the time for a real change in consciousness as you are incited to revolt. Challenge the structures that are limiting authentic progress. It is not enough to rebel in small ways – this is a call to revolution! Focus on what you really want to achieve, regardless of whether it feels so far outside the box that the established order may reject it. Genius, invention, and transformation are rarely comfortable, and less likely to be accepted by the mainstream. It maybe time for you to say no to the way of your group, take a stand, and make real changes. It could be that the structure of your inner world is alerting you to the need for a complete overhaul. This is a time for transformation, so let go of the fear of change. Your intuition will lead you through the darkness. There is no turning back now. Trust that light will dawn. Epiphanies will surely lead to miracles.

Think About It – This card asks you to step back from your current path or thought process and review the situation you’re asking about. There’s an unseen aspect, and the Angels guide you to slow down so you can move forward with the whole picture in sight. This card can also be cautionary, if you were about to make a radical change impulsively. While it still may be the best path, this card asked you to look into the alternatives first. You are exquisitely sensitive to energy, and your mission is to heal and transform negative energy into positive. However, there’s always a better way to do so. This card ask you to research your options for making helpful changes that are part of your life’s mission.

Eight of Spring – There are many varieties of stress. This card reflects the kind that comes from having a lot of wonderful things in your life at once! You may be juggling a family, new career opportunities, seeing to your fitness, decorating your home… Of course, you wouldn’t wish away any of these lovely things, yet it’s a great deal to have on your plate! This is the card of successful multitasking. If things have been quiet for you, expect to see a big increase in the action. Make sure you have every task prioritized. Whenever possible delegate items from your to-do list to others. And be grateful for all the wonderful things in your life while you juggle them. Our fairy in the image tries to simultaneously manage eight magical dandelions. It’s a lot to handle at once but thankfully the dandelions represent wishes come true! Additions meanings of this card: Being confident! Sudden events or rapid changes. Instantaneous results. Business travel.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of March 26, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Bloodstone, Lava Rock 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. 


Bloodstone – Centering and grounding. Increases adaptability and organization. Lessens confusion, stress, and anxiety. A stone of courage. Brings renewal by releasing blockages. Heals emotional traumas and grief. It enhances the intellect. It is used to bring energy in many ways, including abundance, success and prosperity.


Lava Rock – Embraces Fire and Earth Energy. When a person is drawn to lava rock it might be because they need the fire or energy in their life. They can be used for grounding, protection and making a connection to the earth. They allow us to “root” scattered energy, find focus and bring balance to our center by embracing practicality. They encourage stimulation. This stone has the nurturing power of Mother Earth. Considered a fiery fertility stone. In Feng Shui, Black lava is used in the area of Career and Life Path as well as the Helpful People and Travel areas.


Aragonite – Their vibration encourages conservation and caring for the earth. Helps the earth. They are said to clear blocked ley lines and aid geopathic stress. Assists healing and balancing of the emotional body, and help you to overcome stress and anxiety. They send light out in a variety of different directions, to create an outcome of heightened light and energy in their surroundings. They relieve anger and resentment, and they are known to help you if you have anxiety, stress or other negative emotional feelings. Increases energy. Boosts self-confidence and feelings of self-worth. 

When I drew these stones, I knew they were very transformational, and that we are in a strong period of transformation. The Lava Rock starts as a fluid fire, and hardens into a beautiful healing rock. The crystals are telling me that we are struggling through this transformation. One big reason why, is what we have done to Mother Earth. She is struggling too. It is like, how can you expect your heart to function normally if you are neglecting and ruining your body’s health? We are ruining our planet, and we expect that not to affect us, when we are growths of this planet. Imagine how much potential we could have if we had a fertile, healthy environment to grow and thrive in. If things around us aren’t healthy, the things we consume, the things we breath.. it’s hard for us to be healthy. Consumerism is quickly draining this planet of her precious resources. We are tainting the waters, wasting our food and taking other species down for temporary gain. Not only that, we are hurting ourselves and inviting disease. We need to put energy into loving our planet, like we should be loving ourselves. We need to clean it, and make more sustainable choices. I know people think this concept is so “left wing”, but honestly, it’s just the straight-out truth. We need to do it and we need to get doing it now. We need to avoid toxins. We need to go back to a more simple and natural way of life. We need to embody those very ideals that we want to see reflected around us. If we want to see beauty, happiness and adventure in our life, then we need to find those things inside us and reflect them to the outer world. Show the Earth you will help care for her beauty. Be proud of yourself and be confident and bold. Choose to be happy every moment you can. Take those adventures and grow your soul. It’s a reciprocal relationship, what you get is what you give, so be generous. I am going to use the Earth Magic Oracle Card deck by Stephen Farmer, so let’s see which cards want to go along with this message. 


The winter solstice really reminds me of how our winter is going… it’s never ending! This card is a sign that it’s ok to slow down. That we need to slow down. We need to reflect on where we have been and where we are going. We need to integrate the lessons we have learned. We need to take time to consider what our next goals in life are. If you have been feeling stuck or blocked lately, know that it is ok and that the light will return. We need to realize that the fears we have are illusionary, and find ways to break through them. There is so much promise on the horizon, and we need to breach the water and show up for it when the time comes. We are moving from a phase where we stayed inside of ourselves, but we are preparing to put ourselves out there in a big way, most likely in your career and life purpose. Take time to reflect on your life, on how you could care for yourself better, on how you can love a little more. Make small choices to be more generous to others, to yourself, to the Earth. By loving yourself, you give yourself the confidence you need to come out, to show yourself, and to put on a beautiful display of talent. You have so much inside of you waiting to be explored and discovered. One way you can do this is by having adventures. By exploring the world around you, you somehow explore your inner world… the reciprocal relationship. There is so much beauty on the horizon… this could not be a more gorgeous sunset with the new moon hanging so delicately in the sky. There is so much to look forward to. The couple is embracing each other knowing that everything is going to be great, and all they have to do is be in the moment, appreciate life and be happy. 


Winter Solstice (Reflection) – The midpoint of Winter is not only the shortest day of the year, but 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 had passed, the season that it, 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 judgements, 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 of 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 Earth cycles have their own pace, so does this cycle. 


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 a magnificent display of fullness and strength. All baleen whales breach, but none more spectacularly than the humpbacks, considered the acrobats of this family. They arch, stretch, and twist their bodies even as they approach the surface of the water, in what may be an ancient mating ritual, a form of communication, or even a way to remove parasites. 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, environmental 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 and prevent us from connecting to earth. It is 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 a point to go outside. You have become so attached to your surroundings that you have created within them an 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 you have always wanted to experience. Another perspective is breaking through the barrier of the beliefs that have constricted you in any way from who you truly are. This is your opportunity to do some intentional breaching of these thought patterns, which will open you to different worlds and perspectives. 


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, named 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 is to come is embedded in the first glimmer of her light as she emerges from behind the curtain 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 the action into what’s required to fully realize this idea. A promise has two 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.

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.

1st day of blogging a success!

61 visitors to my blog on the 1st day, and tons of likes. Thank you all so incredibly much for stopping by. I have wanted to start a blog for sometime, but with the time constraints of kids and work and chores, it leaves me very little time for my photography or blogging! Something moved me yesterday and worked through me, and made me type up the 1st and 2nd blogs quickly and put them up without hesitation or embarrassment. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I am a shy person, but it feels weird just to put your real emotions out in the world for anyone to see. It’s a vulnerability that must be overcome to effect positive change and real discussions about our true issues and problems. I pushed through cleaning my kitchen and in a few hours when supper rolled around, there I was staring down a filthy kitchen once again. It is something I have tried to accept and embrace since becoming a mother, that responsibility and worries become endless once you enter the realm of motherhood, yet something is chipping away at my soul every time I have to get back to doing stuff I perhaps would prefer not to be doing. I guess it’s a balance that I am struggling to find. I can say that writing my feelings and putting them out there yesterday was also very therapeutic for me. It feels good not to care what anyone else thinks of you, and to love yourself and put your creative talents out into the world. It’s funny because I never really considered myself creative or to be particularly good at writing. It’s amazing what happens when you just sit down and try. I also feel like it is a divine guidance that gives me the inspiration and drive to actually do something. We all need to listen to our hearts closely and ask what we can do to help someone else and try to make the world a better, happier, and beautiful place to live and enjoy this crazy thing called life. I am sure one day when my child is out of the toddler phase and hopefully done with the ear infections, I will look back at my frustrations feeling I overreacted. The truth is, raising kids is hard, and we shouldn’t feel any shame for feeling emotions that have been around since human beings have existed. There is a reason we feel these emotions, and in feeling that out, and learning how to cope instead of avoid, we can hopefully mitigate the tougher years in our lives. Can’t have a rainbow without a little rain, right?
