I’ve come to know, with a feeling of absolute certainty, that dreams reveal how I am doing in the awake state. My dreams for decades showed me how my life was changing, how to make good choices, showed me the future, connected me with people here and passed, but in regard to love and passion, was the same, the same, the same.

From teenage years growing up in the hippie days with free love, I realized that males were feeling entitled to rampant sex, but perhaps unlike other females, eventually I didn’t like being categorized as a body without a thinking, feeling person inside, that wasn’t acknowledged and cared about. So my body and psyche worked together and put on weight so I wasn’t unconsciously vulnerable to handsome, charming boys and young men.  In more mature years I now would say, speaking generally, that men are built to desire sex more so that the planet gets populated, while women are more the guiders of love, as everyone person in the population needs love.

Years later I met my husband, a charming and sexy man that I couldn’t resist. It was certainly a connection that was meant to be, I’d say likely from a past life.  Yet though it was fun, it was also challenging, and, again, I wasn’t treated the way I deserved. His former wife allowed him to have his son for one year, which was a joy raising him, yet as the year was ending, alcohol became my husband’s life to fight the depression of letting him go, and his demeanor was demeaning to us both.

I went to Al Anon, learned that something in me drew the situation so that I could grow and evolve consciously, and though respectfully and kindly urging him to get help, ultimately I ended up divorcing him and the horrors. I lovingly released the ties that had bound me to him and his behaviors toward me. Though he did love again with another lovely woman, my former husband’s alcoholism eventually was his downfall as he passed, young, of a diseased liver.

I was reunited with a young boy I had known, who was now a young adult and we, too, were drawn to be together. He adored me, yet as time marched on, he became addicted to doctor-prescribed klonopin for panic attacks that became out of control as he became friends with a musical icon and performed on stage. It became challenging for us both to deal with the effects, which lead to more drugs and then alcohol in his life. He amazingly fought off everything over decades, as I coached him empoweringly, from the sidelines, from the heart, as a friend. He is still a dear friend. 

I’ve had several male companions since then but my inner space was wary of relationships due to more lessons than joy. Though they were flirty and desired sensuality if I was open, I explained I would be keeping  it platonic …(so I wouldn’t be vulnerable then drawn into intimate physical ties and perhaps face more hardships.)  I was solidifying that I was desirable enough by the male gender to want to spend time with, and saw these men several times a week. It was great fun and built my value around men. Oh and through the years my dreams were humdrum romantically.

I thoroughly enjoyed being a single and free woman… yet earlier this year I clearly recognized  that I was, indeed, ready for love and passion again, not afraid, and willing to give my nurturing and romantic big heart to someone to share and enjoy, with passion. Though not having a current history of how it’s done, I would just have to see what happens and learn as I went.

I’ve met some men now and it has certainly opened me up passionately feeling for them, as friends first based on my now ingrained habit of not wanting to become physically intimate too soon…blah blah blah, you get it now…if we’re not good for each other, having the hardship of pulling away from the excitement of intimate physical bliss.

I’ve been intimately kissed, I’ve been held, I’ve even been told that the weight I’d added to my body doesn’t get in the way of this man wanting to be in a full relationship with me, and if I desire, he will help train me (he’s done that professionally), and my world is changing. 

My nighttime dreams are the ultimate revelation of this because for months now there has been a different man in my dreams every evening, loving me, not just desiring my body, but real love and fondness. Treating me with great respect and equality. Good looking men. Sexy men. Even men who I knew in the past that strictly desired me for my body. I clearly am in the role of their romantic partner. These dreams are 180 degrees from the long past, and are my affirmation that the wheels are turning in my passionate favor in my outer life now.

Why even last night I got an actual therapy course by who knows who, speaking to my inner ear in my sleeping dream, as I met a guy who was nice looking and who desired to be fully physical with me, the voice coaching me on why it is okay to be consciously vulnerable with him and ‘go all the way’ sooner than I had set rules for myself previously, though throughout the dream I was being cautious of doing so. In my wakened state I felt spiritually authorized to bend the old rules!

This all coincides with moving my body more and feeding my body somewhat differently now.  I am not holding on for dear life to any man, not defined by a man, not demanding how anything turn out with a man. That has been the gift of time and wisdom from the intervening years. It seems I am peeling away the armor and sculpting the goddess of beauty to, draw in good, respectful, sexy men who are passionate to be close to me. Conscious vulnerability is now my key to be free. I am turning the key as I watch myself share more of my tender truth with these men, as a vulnerable soul, realizing we all are, and recognizing who is worthy of my fearful bravery as I walk in honest and soulful beauty.

Sweet, revelatory, breakthrough and therapeutic dreams to you, too. May they be passionate.

This is about more than the TV show by the same name. There we see celebrities research their ancestry and wonder do we come from lineage of sacrifice, honor, suffering, royalty?

We are all descended from royalty in that we are created in the image and likeness of God; created of the same amazing and fantastic divine energy source. That is the core from which we begin, let’s say. Our ancestors may have been pilgrims, native Americans, from Russia or Austria, etc. Those cultures may describe traits and experiences, but …never forget who you really are.

We are all brothers and sisters from the same source, initially. One may teach the ways of the land and nature, another dance or sing, expressing inspirational music through the body, while another may soar through the skies flying us to our varying destinations. Is that who you are?

That may be what you do, but always remember who we are. Expressions of the divine. Whether out of work and staying with someone else, married or divorced, big or small, whether a political influencer, whether the head of a movie studio, we all share the same value in the divinity.

Time can find you employed tomorrow, or unemployed; you could be struck by an accident on the way to give your vote in session or voted President, the next romantic love interest could be walking next to you next week, your movie may flop at the box office or win best picture.

Depressed today doesn’t mean depressed tonight or tomorrow. Flying on ego over the ‘little people’ could find your flying carpet landing on landfill. The less we rely on our status or reputation to fill our sense of worthiness and who we are, the more we consciously curb the ego, the more we can see clearly we are the same. Ah, there lies the true joy.

As a creative by the Creator, all miraculous by a miracle, workers by the work of ‘His’ (Her) hands, we can all rise to remember the truth. Expect the miracle. Know you are the miracle. Be the miracle. Expect peace. Know you are the peace. Be the peace. Expect love. Know you are the love. Be the love. Look upon yourselves as our Maker looks upon us all, makers;… as loved children without judgment, unconditionally loved.

We have divine power, but not knowing your birthright, we can live behind a rock, under a bridge, in others’ shadows, thinking we are unworthy if another doesn’t tell us so.

Be who you really are, and observe a return to divinity in the here and now.

Our traffic lights are very clear in silent communication. They indicate what is in our best interests to do on our journey, and when we pay attention, we follow their signals for our safety. Not so clear are our own mental signals, all of the time.

Some people are always ready to go with green at the git-go; speed through yellow because they don’t relish slowing, and miss the advantage of seeing the reality and sweetness of the landscape, when it turns red for a couple of minutes. Breathe deeply, take it in. Go, go, go is all they know. I’ve done that, have you?

The one who only likes green is giving every sign that they want to move forward, flashing green, green, green to the oncoming human traffic. They love speeding to the destination and that’s quite okay. Others may rather savor the journey, moving slower, valuing awareness, and noticing more, like letting the taste sit on the tongue, allowing the full flavor to linger. Yellow, slowed down, allows time to compile data and determine what color to go forward with after careful research. Have you done that? I have.

How many times have you said slow or stop, when you really desired the situation to go forward anyway. I know I have. Sometimes we may project and expect red, because of old paradigms, programming and memories. You too?

There’s such a thing as intuition, yet there is also the mind overwhelmed with so many signals, all flashing multi colors at once. How to know? Remembering that when you went green immediately, sometimes you regretted it. So you place your bets on yellow. Chicken yellow?  J  Not always!

Some have told you in the past to speed up or you won’t make it to the finish line. Another suggestive thought could argue it would be in your best interests to put your foot on the brake and stop, because you’re not getting the green light to go.

There was an invitation to a gathering that I felt red about, for me, yet the invitation repeated itself week after week and eventually  I found myself full-on, green to go, and it has been fabulous.  Sometimes it’s timing. We can change colors, and each shows our real colors, as time passages.

There have been situations presented to me as green as green could be, to find out later they had suddenly turned red when I wasn’t looking. My initial energy had felt yellow, slow, at first, then immediately realized I was turning green desiring to go through it.

Well, too late, as I discovered the opportunities had changed to red. Okay. I trust in a higher power that ultimately has my and your best interests at heart. I can flow with the tide, and you can too.

There is a difference between being a clear channel for pure intuition, and hearing mundane changeable mental signals. In my daily life I don’t go around reading minds, however, when I devote myself to a client I am an open vessel reading spiritual insights just for them; myself stepping aside.

Otherwise, like you, in our busy, busy minds, we can all waver from our own intuition to our own mixed signals. Ha! Sometimes we just Know, and other times we’re uncertain. That’s okay too.

If quieting our minds to listen deeper doesn’t bring discernment, have faith that when the time is right, we’ll know. Sometimes it’s a good practice to sit with unknowing and let that be okay. The road can turn dark, stormy or foggy and head lights or fog lights can make the way clearer. Things are not always what they seem unless you slow down to take a deeper look. 

One way to clear what people call the ‘monkey mind’ is to picture ourselves in the center/eye of a storm. Things are swirling all around us and sometimes it seems like chaos or danger. If we stay in the eye of the storm, the calm is there. The quiet. The peace. We observe the activity around us, and that is the key.

Recognize we are simply the observer, not really part of the ‘stuff,’ and in our quiet center of everlasting peace, we can often access intuitive insights of what is real, how it is our gift, and gain positive, win-win  choices.

Whether signs change color or not, there is always God’s love that never changes from green, though some people may currently be color challenged or blind. God’s love is always welcoming us to come forward, come closer, move into the path that is always lit for us with empowerment. We were put on this road by a higher benefactor, and the light of love is the only signal to pay closest attention to. Every signal is for the highest good.

Everything is energy. Not just caffeine drinks, pills or big engines…You and I are made of energy. So if you greet a person and they are not welcoming, looking to see you as less than, or bragging in competition with you, you might not like their energy. On the other hand another person might be very chill and receptive, open-hearted and empowering to all, so you would likely like their energy.

Maybe a person looks or dresses differently than what you are used to and may be initially outside your comfort zone. But it’s really all about their energy. They may turn out to be just your style. Don’t judge a book by its cover. In fact the more you look, the more you’ll find to like.

You can walk into a store and just sense you want to leave immediately. Or notice you just took a big relaxing deep breath and realize you want to peruse the entire place. You can get a feeling that certain people in a group stay in their own known clique, not caring if you are left out. 

We can pay more attention to our own energy and how we are even affecting ourselves. If you take things personally, that’s your doing. We’re not all drawn to every type of energy. Think of it as flowers gravitating to grow in the earth, and how a fish is, if it’s out of water. Some trees don’t do well too close to other types of trees.

Actually we can know from looking at our birth charts if we’ll connect with one and not another; or if one career floats your boat and another no way. Yet things do change in time, as well, haven’t you noticed?

Just because you’re not tying up to one harbor doesn’t mean that another harbor isn’t made of the same basic energy; in the image and likeness of the energy of God. So at least watch your own energy in how you treat others even if they don’t float your boat.

Now, when we see a light coming through the fog and we begin to feel energy resonating with our own, the light growing bigger and the fog dissolving, gratefulness is in order. Hallelujah. Someone who gets me. Someone who I’m drawn to. We could make beautiful music together.

And each and every time you feel good energy be thankful. Be also expecting of good energy for then it will be drawn to find you. In fact, like is attracted to like. So what do you find being drawn to you? Remember it’s a mirror of yourself at that present time. Are you drawing inner beauty or just outer beauty with an unrefined core?

In every instant if we see/focus on only good and peace, it becomes reality, so differing energies can have very little effect because we only see its basic fundamental innate divine good. If we take care of our own energy, living in positivity, more good will come our way. Belief in abundance as your divine right will draw it. If the belief in abundance is not believing its good energy, is of greed or thievery, it won’t be drawn unless you believe you are greedy or thieving. There is enough good and abundance for all. Remember everything is just energy, and plentiful.

Not getting enough sleep? Change a habit or two. Too much sleep? Maybe it was needed but if your energy doesn’t find balance, too much or too little will begin to have us feel dreary and dark. Not everyone is born with a lot of energy to run and climb. If not, you were given a lot of mind or feeling energy; we all have something. Don’t count faults; count your blessings and strengths. You are responsible to keep your energy as good energy.

Low self esteem? Confidence comes from remembering the divine God energy source loves you unconditionally, no matter what, and holds you up high for being an important piece of so many puzzles. Been hurt? Forgive and look for the good reason and gift in it for your own evolution. Take nothing personally. People have their own issues and respond from their own consciousness. Done wrong? Forgive yourself and be certain it has taught you to steer in different directions so it served a useful purpose for your future.

Remember people and things resonating at good frequency, are drawn to good energy, so be what you wish to experience in this life. The feel-good energy you create for yourself is the gift that keeps on giving.

Cheers!

Get ready for a big moment on its way. I’ll explain below, but let’s start with some basics; how no two people are the same. Even twins. You are a reflection of the moment when you took your first breath.

Have you ever played musical chairs? The kids walk round and round inside a circle of chairs while the music is playing, and when the music stops they all sit down in the chair located where they are standing at that moment.

Now simply imagine the circle is the circular zodiac in the sky. Imagine there are twelve chairs in the circle; in fact the chairs are so wide we can call them twelve sofas, and each of the twelve sofas has embroidered on it the name of one of the twelve signs in the zodiac, in order, starting with Aries, then Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, then Pisces. Replace the thought of children moving around the circle with the thought of the planets moving around the circular zodiac, from one zodiac sofa to the next one, round and round again and again.

Think about it. Zodiac signs are just energetic traits; we can’t touch a zodiac sign. The planets are the tangible things, and they each have traits and characteristics too. In fact, remember thinking of them as representing people, and imagine the zodiac signs as a reflection of the way the people/planets decorate. The zodiac signs are a reflection of the planet’s characteristics, so Saturn traits are the same as its representative zodiac sign, Capricorn’s, traits, so may love decorating its sofa in black with traditional or business savvy style, while Uranus gives Aquarius its traits so may make its sofa turquoise, ultra modern with eclectic influences. The sofas/zodiac signs are stationary while the planets play musical chairs moving around the circle, and we can make a map of the sky (birth horoscope chart) as it appeared when you were born, so we can see what your individualized human traits will be; your human soul potential.

The new child inhales the energetic characteristic traits given off by the planets above, based on what sofa zodiac sign they were sitting in at that moment. Here’s where we interpret, putting everything together. Maybe you have four planets sitting together on one sofa’s zodiac sign.

Your sun may have been in the sofa section zodiac sign of Capricorn, but maybe Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter were all sitting on the sofa in the zodiac sign of Aquarius!!! So you may identify less with the old fashioned, frugal, hard-working, responsible characteristics of Capricorn and more with the influences within you of Aquarius, which can be futuristic, original, free, open-minded and independent..

Isaiah 10:26

"Lift your eyes on high and behold who has created these. He who brings forth the starry hosts … one by one and calls them forth by character."

I Corinthians 15:41

"There is one glory of the Sun and another glory of the Moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory."

There is the familiar saying, ‘As Above, So Below.’ The bigger picture of how we share the experiences of the same subtle energies here, (below the sky), can be interpreted from what is happening in the sky (above), as the game of musical chairs is constant.  You can read my astrology page on my free website, below, to receive my interpretations of how to use each day of the current month for your advantage in the game of Life!

Jesus Christ, Luke 21:25

"There shall be signs in the Sun, the Moon, and the Stars."

If you were born  August 1 for instance, you would be born when the Sun is in the zodiacal sofa section Leo. If your twin is born twenty minutes later, you may share the same Sun sign, but your rising sign may be different (your mannerisms), your Moon sign (how you feel  inside as an emotional being; also indicating your unfinished past life emotional business that you came here, again, to work out). Even one or more of the other planets may have changed zodiac sign as the time moved on from one twin’s birth to the next, minutes later.

At the very least, even if signs are the same, the degrees within a sign can easily be different. There are thirty degrees within every single zodiac sign and the heavenly bodies are always moving forward (or backwards) by degrees. Each two and a half degrees has its own flavor and traits. Also consider that if the Sun is about to change signs, one twin may be born under one sun sign and the next sibling would be the next Sun sign!

Keep in mind we live at, and travel to, different degrees of latitude and longitude so as they say, location is everything. Did you move from the neighborhood where you were born? Have you moved more than once in life? Changes of latitude and longitude position will change events for you, too. The planetary bodies may be at a complimentary angle in one place while forming an even better, or more challenging geometrical aspect at another locale.

Weather is actually less predictable than astrological indications. For instance I may tell one client about dates of events and explain in what ways the ‘as above’ plan is changing their life, as perhaps coming up in a month and a half.  Another might wait longer for a particular type of event to occur. Some opportunities may last a week, month to a decade or more, and not come again for from a year or two, to thirty years or more, or not again in this lifetime.

This is God’s language to us, just like intuition is another gift. We are meant to know it like knowing English or Spanish. We do get intuition about our times, often growing stronger and stronger as an inner push, but too often people question what they feel , will doubt, and may let their opportune fortunes pass them by.

From the planetary system, I can tell them their past, and verifying that truth, they realize that what I describe is coming up for them is based in the same accuracy. In their Reading, also receiving the same verification from my other spiritual insights which include pictures they can’t ignore, this all allows them to have a clear realization that it’s tangible, divine timing, can indeed occur, and thereby be more prone to grab their brass ring, based on tangible evidence. It can also help us detour around challenges! Using only free will might lead one either to go for their highest destiny by crossing fingers, squeezing eyes shut and jumping, or by defaulting into usual fears or focusing on the blocks, and not take best steps.

The various geometrical angles formed by the ever-moving planets, explains the basis for the feelings and thoughts occurring; from the one who feels like giving up a long reputable career to pursue the overwhelming call to creative urges, or the one who makes the big decision to move to a place that feels more like home, because they would literally scream, and begin to lose effervescent life force energy if they don’t follow the soul’s urgings.

Some ‘as above, so below’ potential events encompass a country by its birth chart, based on the moment when it was birthed as a country, including revolutions for freedom. Some will effect individuals in differing ways, and some will encompass us all on the planet. The coming energies August 25th are being called a peace portal and will occur 3:11 pm pacific time.

Like we had in July, again we will have a most fortunate Grand Sextile, forming the actual Star of David, a 6-pointed star formation which is a triangle pointing up and a triangle superimposed over it of a triangle pointing down, which is the true meaning of ‘as above, so below,’ as well as at the same moment having the challenge of a Grand Cross, shaped like a square with no outlet. That makes August 25 much more powerful.

I’ve heard from various sources we need 144,000 to activate its potential. Let’s tell everyone we know to take advantage of one of the most opportune moments in the history of earth, a rarity in time, by consciously opening to the energies at that moment in their time zone. The Star can bring great good fortune to the places on our planet which have been experiencing deep-rooted challenges which seemed to have had no outlet for relief. We can actually save some lives by sending the energies that we allow in our own hearts at that time, and imagine spreading them over the globe. If you don’t already know the power of imagination, read my recent article.

Challenges come up so that we can rise higher within ourselves to meet them, and become more like a diamond in the evolution of our eternal lives. Sometimes we are given a huge helping higher hand lifting us up. Sometimes we even say aloud: The stars must be aligned.

Have you ever had a Tarot Reading?  Of course each Reader and spiritual Reading will be different, but overall many people highly value the accurate personal insights and positive guidance, and some people fear a Reading, due to religious belief.  I’m not here to judge, though others may judge tarot, however, oddly enough there is a card in the deck named Judgment.

Even Bible stories exalt prophets, and as tarot is also astrological, to read Biblical and other notable quotes about God’s planets having speech and knowledge (astrology), that there will be signs in the sun, moon and the stars, and the starry hosts have characteristics, visit my website. See below.

It has also been used as divination, itself, in the form of Bibliomancy, the casual choosing of a verse by randomly opening the Bible to be heeded as God-given advice upon a situation.  We can also randomly pick one card from the Tarot (Torah – see the High Priestess card’s named book on her lap) as divine guidance as well.

I consistently prefer to use the deck of 78 cards called Universal Rider-Waite, conceived by Stuart R. Kaplan. There is a card welcoming us to the deck with a statement taken from The Encyclopedia of Tarot, Volume I, also by Stuart R. Kaplan, “What we see in the symbology of tarot derives in large measure from our own intuition and, once revealed, reflects back upon each of us to further enrich our lives.”

We don’t have to be religious to be spiritual. Faith in a higher intelligent loving source energy, which I call God, knows no boundaries, and intuition is also a spiritual gift for everyone. In fact I suggest to my clients that they practice using their intuition because it is their clear and personal connection with divine spirit, which has their best interests at heart.

The Judgment card clearly depicts an angel over people, raising them from the dark place they have been, meaning real spiritual judgment is in the hands of the higher enlightened, which only unconditionally, nonjudgmentally loves all, and when we discontinue standing firm in our limiting negative judgments about people and events, we will be raised out of our darkness and resultant dark experiences, into spiritual bliss in our own inner and outer lives.

Religion banned use of the tarot a long time ago because of misguided beliefs about certain cards such as The Tower and Death.  When I teach tarot classes I explain how spiritual guidance is only positive, and death is not ours to predict. In fact the death card means personal transformation, rebirthing, being born again, shedding old outworn ways and habits, like exfoliating dead skin cells to show the healthy layer of skin beneath, A snake shedding its skin isn’t dying, it has a new skin ready to be worn.

It may show up in a Reading as what a person fears, i.e. death, or a person ready to step into the next life, so we can explain how there is no death since we are made of energy and energy can’t be killed. We just transform into our next step; we are eternal and so is our connection with loved ones.

Just ask a medium who channels the ‘other side.’ I see and hear communication for clients and myself with my own eyes and ears.

The picture on the death card depicts a sun rising from the horizon, bringing the next light of day. Let go of the old, to make room for the new.

The Hermit card shows spirit watching over us, lighting our path with the light of the star of David in a lantern, enlightening our passageway for us to see ahead, helping us make wise choices for our way.

The Magician card tells us we have the magic of spirit as our God-given tools, showing a person in a white (spiritual energy) gown, covered with a robe the color of (physical) life- giving blood, beautiful red.

One hand holds a baton pointing above, while the other hand points down with the pointer finger toward the ground, meaning as above, so below; what thoughts we send to spirit occurs on earth in our physical experience. We have been given the tools (shown on the magician’s table) to create our occurrences by our negative, or positive higher thinking.

The Tower card may show people falling from the windows of a tower that was just hit by lightening but the tower sits on a large sturdy rock, revealing that even when things happen suddenly or shockingly surprisingly we are all still on firm ground, as God always has us in hand. One interpretation may literally mean changing residence or as Carl Jung interpreted this tarot card, when you build your tall tower to worship the physical material world, without the balance of equal spiritual tribute, your tower will be struck and come tumbling down. In other words, keep your physical life balanced with the values of living with spiritual principals.

The Fool card is the God card. Some decks put it as the first card and some as the last card because life begins and ends with God. Be willing to be a fool for what you faithfully feel is inspired within. You won’t fall off a cliff, not watching the physical ground under you, by always looking upward to God, because with faith in spiritual protection, something or someone will intervene in some way at the right time for whatever you need to know to stay safe with sure footing. Always look up, knowing you are divinely guided.

Those are just a few of the tarot’s 78 picture cards, and what’s miraculous is that though you or I are mixing and shuffling the cards, it is actually our higher connection with spirit that is putting them in an order, knowing how each particular Reader will interpret them for the person who has come for spiritual insight and counsel. Then from that order they have been put into, they lay out in a way which tells your story.

I can see what spirit wants me to discuss with you. It may be about money, a job, career or business, romance, that there will be a move; really any subject or subjects imaginable, and we can hone down who, where, how, when and more, with the understanding that not only is this already in the person’s subconscious, but perhaps even already reached their intuition and inner or outer awareness.

I start by reading the next six to eight (6-8) months, though we can go further. Keep in mind that things are not always set in stone, you might be able to change outcomes if you wish, and that the reins of free-will are always held by you.

The cards all have many meanings, and beyond the original layout we can pull more cards on any question for additional clarity and understanding. Each Reading is all about just you and your life, and my next guest’s Reading will only be talking about and to them.

The only thing to fear is fear itself. God is good.
