The Road of Life: Why Our Cars Are Like Us

In a poetic sense, our body and souls are very much like our cars. Our vehicles are the tools that get us from point A to point B, and so forth and so on. And yet, our bodies are also our vehicles that we “drive” each day. Our body and soul navigates us every day to the places we need to go, to meet the people we need to meet, and to stop and go when we need to.

I wanted to take a deeper look into the analogy of how our cars and our selveferrari-360-2918130_1920s/spirit are similar. This sparked my interest about ten years ago when I took a metaphysical class in which my teacher mentioned the importance of paying attention to when things are “going wrong” – for example, your car breaking down on the side of the road. Have you ever noticed these things happen at the most inconvenient of times, or when you are already feeling at the tipping point? She spoke about how when things like this happen it is relative and representative of other deeper things going on inside of ourselves or our lives. So I dove deep inside my own soul to recognize and understand that it’s just as important to take care of our things (in this case, our cars) because it’s representative of our mind, body and spirit.

Car Clutter  is similar to our living space, in that our cars can collect clutter also. Often times, this clutter can represent mental clutter and baggage we are carrying around. If your car is loaded with clutter, evaluate your current mental state. Are there some things that you need to let go of right now? It’s time to let go of the old and “dirty” to make way for clarity and new. Regardless of which one you start with, try and clear that clutter out, even if it takes you a couple of days to do. Set aside some time and get a garbage bag and physically clear out the clutter in your car. Designate a home for certain items and get rid of stuff that no longer serves you. You will begin to feel mental clarity from having a nice clean car. If you’re more about getting your mental clutter in check first, take some time out to meditate and evaluate what you need to let go of. Once you get your mind in a better state, get to cleaning.

Accelerating on the Gas is representative of our will, giving us the drive and the energy to go through life. When we’re hesitant to put our foot on the gas and go, there may be something we are refraining from doing because we are afraid. When you’re stuck in a horrible driving situation (congestion, surrounded by aggressive drivers) do you sit back and let everyone else pass you by, taking you longer to get to your destination? Or do you build yourself up to confidently and carefully get past the mayhem? In life, maybe you are letting other people pass you by and staying stagnant wondering why it can’t be you. You can also get to where you want to be by taking one step at a time. Putting your foot on the gas and going slowly is better than not accelerating at all.

Hitting the Brakes is a metaphor for when we need to slow down in life. There are definitely times to forge ahead on our path, but then there are times where we need to apply the brakes. If you’ve ever driven while feeling emotional (whether good emotional or bad emotional) or out of sorts, then you may have noticed that when you look down at your dashboard you discover that you are going over the speed limit. That moment of realization forces you to think “oh boy, I need to slow down.” The same thing goes for your current lifestyle. Are you doing things too much, too soon, too fast? Are you trying to accomplish too much at once? Slow down. You won’t miss out in life when you take your time. I learned this lesson the hard way. I had been going what felt like nonstop for a couple of months and forgot about taking time out for myself and letting things happen one at a time. That stress made its way onto the road one day while I was rushing to my then job, and I found myself being pulled over. I took this whole situation as a sign that I needed to slow down in life. From that point on, I did.

The Windshield of our car is a way for us to see what lies ahead. It helps us to be aware of where we are driving and steering and of our surroundings. Our windshield is representative of our eyes and of our vision for the future. If you’ve been feeling like you are unable to see or envision what lies ahead for you, evaluate your windshield. When you look through it, what do you see? Is it clear, or is it cloudy? Are there cracks? Clean and repair it as necessary so you can look out of the whole windshield and not just the little spot that has no dirt or cracks. Take in the beauty of your surroundings and pay attention to all that is around you and you will begin to find your way in life, both on the road and your personal path. Also, go for an eye check up!

Headlights are used to help us see in times of darkness. When on the road – especially at night – we would not be able to see without the help of our headlights. In life there may be times where we feel we are fumbling around in the dark, unsure of which direction to go. Sometimes we are fortunate to have the help of others to guide our way. In the instances that we do not, we must rely on our own. Our headlights are our own guiding light that we use to remind ourselves of the light within, or that we use to help others see and light the way for them. If you have a broken headlight you’ve neglected to get fixed, assess whether you rely on the help of others too much to get you by. It may be time for you to go within and use your own as a guiding force.

Steering Wheels and Directionals represent our choices – which way will you choose to go? When you come to a stop in which you need to make a left turn or a right turn, you normally would choose the one which is going to bring you to your desired destination. The steering wheel is the tool that allows you to do so, while your directional lets everyone know “hey, I’m going this way so watch out!” In your personal life, you wouldn’t choose the direction that steers you down the wrong path would you? It’s difficult to know how things turn out before they’ve even happened yet, but if you’ve ever come to the proverbial fork in the road, I would hope that you’d choose the option that will bring you the most joy and peace in your heart. If your steering alignment or signals are off, you may have trouble knowing which direction you want to take, or may make abrupt decisions without letting others know. Finding yourself in situations that you do not want to be in. Drive carefully. Choose the best way for you. Linger at the “stop sign” if you need to and take your time making a decision until you’ve weighed out your pros and cons. If there are any things you need to change, or people you need to leave behind, make sure you put your directional on so they know which way you’re going (aka – communicate – or don’t).

Low Fuel such as gas, and oil means that we are depleting ourselves and need to recharge. Your car can’t run on empty, so how can you? Giving your car the fluids it needs helps it to run smoothly and function properly. The last thing you want is to be broken down on the side of a busy highway because you didn’t take the time out to give it what it needs. Just like cars, we need to fuel our bodies with proper rest, nourishing foods, water and wellness of mind, body, and spirit. Without these basic needs we will most definitely not be able to function either and could potential fall ill. Give your car and yourself the fuel it needs to operate, before it’s too late.

Windshield Wipers and Washer Fluid work along with our windshield, our field of vision. When there are debris that cloud our vision while driving, our wipers and washer fluid are what clear the obstruction away so that we may see again. If the windshield represents our eyes then the washer fluid represents… our tears! When it feels like world is closing in on us and the opinions of others, or the pressure and stress of everyday life grabs hold, we may feel the need to have a good cry. Crying is an excellent way to cleanse the soul and clear the blockages we feel inside. Just like the wipers, we are swatting away the energy of others, of sources of stress, and giving ourselves the chance to clean up all the junk and debris that are preventing us from seeing what lies ahead. If you have been neglecting to add or use washer fluid on your vehicle this may be representative of suppressing your feelings and letting that junk pile up in front of you. Once in awhile, when life knocks you down – give yourself the chance to cry. As I always say.. it doesn’t make you cowardly, it gives you newfound strength. You will emerge feeling cleansed and able to see more clearly.

Inspection is a reminder for us to go for regular check-ups with our doctors. Your car isn’t going to last forever driving around without getting a routine check-up. You aren’t going to last for as long as you’re supposed to be here on Earth without going for regular check-ups either! There is only so much we can do on our own, and sometimes we need to leave it to the professionals to make sure we are in good working order. Whether you are anti-modern medicine or not, it’s still important to seek medical advice on certain things and find out what you can do to make yourself healthy. When something is wrong car-1835506_1920with our cars, we don’t just assume what’s going on.. we take it for an inspection, or to be checked out. If you’ve been neglecting to bring your car for service, look at whether you are doing the same with yourself. When’s the last time you went for a wellness visit? Make the change today! For you and your car.

Trunks are where we store our baggage. How much junk to you have stuffed in your trunk right now? This could be metaphorical for emotional/mental/spiritual baggage you may be carrying around with you in your every day life. Sure, there are some things we may need to keep back there like emergency kits, spare tires and the like. But if your trunk is filled to the brim with stuff, then it’s time to let some of that stuff go. Each time you carry it around with you, you are reminding yourself and others of the things that are weighing you down, and what you have a hard time letting go of. You may even find yourself unloading that baggage on others. Lighten your load, and everything around you will lighten also.

When your Car Battery dies it means that your car has gone kaput until you get another one, or a new car. In life, this could symbolize that a part of your life is ending so that a new one may begin. I find that a lot of times when there are major car troubles such as this, it seems to happen at the worst times. “I can’t believe this happened, this is all I need right now!” “I’m having the worst few weeks, going through a lot.” Shifts and changes are in the air! I know it’s difficult to look at something like this as a good thing, but know that it only gets better from here. Pretty soon you get a new battery or new car and feel like your riding high. And the same goes for you life. It may be hard right now, but it’s only because things are transitioning. Pretty soon you’ll be back on track to new and beautiful things.

The Rearview Mirror represents what lies behind us. When driving, we glance back in our mirrors to make sure that no one or thing is being reckless, and to make sure all is well in our surroundings. In our personal lives, it’s helpful to glance back every so often and see how far we’ve come. It’s not so much dwelling on the past as it is feeling proud for having made it this far, and appreciating all that has transpired to get us to where we are now. Look back every once in awhile to remind yourself of your history. Then, feel gratitude for where you are now, and all that is yet to be.

Finally, The Exterior of our car shows the color, model, and make of what we’ve chosen to drive. This represents our outer appearance, cleanliness, and aura. Is your car representative of your personality? Some people like to accessorize their cars just as they like to accessorize their dress. If your car is covered in dirt, pollen and other environmental debris, this could represent dirt or other gunk stuck in your aura from other people. Give it a good wash, and give your aura and chakras a good cleanse and balance to remove what is lingering there. If your car isn’t matching up to your personality, maybe it’s time to have it painted, accessorized or detailed differently. Maybe for you in life, that means going shopping and buying a few new outfits, getting a haircut, or doing something different to your appearance.

Hello! Thank you for choosing me as a Guide to assist you on your spiritual journey. I offer several different readings that you may choose from to receive the guidance you are seeking, rather than generically.

All readings are written reports provided to you via PDF file, along with a photograph of the cards selected for you. I like to use a combination of the guidance provided by the oracle cards (their message), as well as my own intuitive advice and suggestions. Please see below for a full list of my readings, along with detailed information of each, and what I will need from you. 

When indicated for some readings, you will have the freedom to choose the deck of your choice, and card number or numbers of your choice, if you wish. To pick a card number, choose a number(s) between 1 and the maximum number of cards in the deck (the total number of cards in the deck are found next to the deck title). That number or numbers will then be the cards I select for you after I shuffle the deck and attune to your energy. If you choose not to do either of these methods, then I will select a deck and a card or cards for you. If you do elect to choose your own deck/card number(s), I urge to you to use your own intuition on this and choose the deck and number(s) that call to you most. The goal of the readings I offer is to be geared towards helping you connect with what you need to receive, and what your intuition is guiding you to do. I act as the spiritual tool and use my own intuitive guidance to help you. 

As a general rule of thumb with formulating a question (when necessary), make sure that what you are asking is not a “yes” or “no” inquiry. The reason for this is that having a more general approach to the cards allows room for more direction and advice on how you can achieve what you are hoping, and how you can attain the guidance you seek to help you on your path. A poor example of a question to ask would be, “Will this job be a good one for me?” A better example of a question to ask would be, “What do I need to know/do to be successful at this time in my current job?” or “What do I need to know now if I choose to stay at this job?” If, for any reason, you are having difficulty forming a question related to your situation, please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail and we can work together to come up with something that works best and will bring the most clarity for you.

**Please note that for all readings, I will need your name, date of birth (must be over 18, no exceptions), and e-mail address (this is how we will correspond). Readings will be delivered via e-mail up to 1 week (or more, if specified) after my confirmation e-mail. If for any reason you need this reading by a certain time, please reach out to me via e-mail so that we can discuss further.**

With the exception of the one card spread, and past-present-future spread, all other spreads have been created by me through inspiration. All are named after different Goddesses for fun. 🙂

KELLY

The Good Witch Spread

This is a spread lovingly created and inspired through my love for numerology, and my own past hardships and spiritual awakening when I was looking for help from my Spirit Guides above. I found that it brought, and still brings me comfort to know there are so many up there that have my back! The same could be said for you, as there are a team of Spirit Guides and Guardians just waiting for you to ask them for help. In this spread you are being guided by higher powers, including your own higher consciousness, and alerted to the things that need to be made known at this time. A total of fifteen cards are pulled, and broken down as such: five cards (representing 555 the number of change) from the Fairies on what changes are taking shape for you/what you need to change, four cards (representing 444 the number of the Archangels) from the Archangels on what they are guiding you to or helping you with, three cards (representing 333 the number of the Ascended Masters) from the Ascended Masters pertaining to what lessons you are currently learning or teaching others, two cards (representing 222 the number of your Guardian Angel) from your Guardian Angel on what they are protecting you from or surrounding you with, and one card (111 representing your spiritual path) that represents a gateway to your inner soul on what to be open to, follow your own guidance on, and allow into your life. This spread is done by me, and no specific question needs to be formulated as it is meant to assess what guidance from above you need now.

FAQ’s

Can you guarantee that everything you provide for me will happen?

Unfortunately, I cannot. The purpose of a reading is to guide you. It is ultimately up to you as the individual to either follow the guidance or be open to who or what situations surround you. Everyone has their own path and purpose and the decisions we make are what lead us there.

Can I get a refund?

A lot of time and energy go into these readings through ritual and writing, and you should make sure that this is what you want before you purchase it. For this reason, no refunds are permitted. However, if there is something that you are unhappy with, or need clarity on, please reach out to me directly via e-mail and we can discuss further.

How often can I do readings?

While the idea of having a reading every week sounds nice, unless you are doing a one card spread to gauge the week ahead, or have different questions you want to ask, it isn’t necessary to do thorough readings every week on the same question or topic. The energy from your spread needs time to take shape and manifest into something. While it may be tempting to check back up on a situation a week later, it is recommended you wait at least a month or two before doing another of the same spread. The reason for this is that you may receive a very similar spread as the one you just did, because it hasn’t fully manifested yet.

Do you use specific things in your readings like names, dates, or objects?

Though I would love to be able to, I don’t always. I am not a full-blown psychic though from time to time I will receive signs or symbols in the form of flashes of pictures or objects, so I may mention them in the reading (I can’t force this to happen). However, if you are looking for a more in depth reading with these qualities, you should probably seek out a psychic medium. My readings are more intuitive based using the cards as a guide.

What if something from my reading still isn’t clear, or I don’t understand it?

Bear in mind that sometimes things come up in readings that haven’t happened yet. Allow for about a month for the messages from the reading to digest. If there is something you still don’t understand, or are generally confused on in the beginning, please reach back out to me via e-mail and we will work together to figure it out.

What if I can’t think of a specific question to ask?

Don’t be too hard on yourself! You can always reach out to me via e-mail and we can come up with something together. Or, you can always stick with a more general question such as “what do I need to know right now?” if you aren’t focusing on one specific topic or question.

What if the cards I get have nothing to do with the question I have?

A lot of times in readings, cards may come through that aren’t necessarily what we asked for. Spirit gives us what we need, and not always what we want. It may be an indication that there are other things of more importance for your path right now that may at some point help with your actual inquiry. Also assess whether you are being completely truthful in what you are inquiring/asking/focusing on. Don’t feel embarrassed or ashamed of wanting to know about something but then ask or focus on something entirely different. Spirit knows and will find a way to bring forth what is really at the forefront and what you need to know right now. Be open to all answers and guidance. Look at it as a ladder, with each step bringing you closer.

What do I do with the information you gave me in my reading?

Give yourself time to analyze your reading and figure out how it fits for you in your life right now, and what changes you can make, if any. Not everything will happen in a day and you need to give yourself and the messages time to manifest. You can also read over the messages periodically to remind yourself of the significance behind them. Some things may not make immediate sense to you, but maybe after a few weeks and several glance overs, something pops out at you that didn’t before. It’s never a bad thing to have your reading to reference back to when you need!

“Fragment” and “Chaos” from Colette Baron Reid’s “Wisdom of the House of Night” Oracle Cards

This week I was spiritually guided to pick two cards for you.

Chaos may have currently ensued (or will) and you may feel like you are at a point where you aren’t sure what to do. If you are the cause of the chaos, then you are being called to take responsibility for your actions. You are the only one that will be able to fix this situation, as you are the one who created it. You can’t act as a tornado and destruct  as you go, expecting others to clean up the messes you have made. The moments in life where you feel like you have the upper hand and hold power should not be abused, as you may cause some upset or hurt to others. Hence, you will have to figure out a way to rectify the issue. Start by apologizing to who or what you have caused some chaos/destruction/confusion towards. When you apologize you open your heart to love. Nothing vibrates higher than love.

If you are on the receiving end of the chaos/not the one who started it, then it’s time for you to take shelter from the proverbial storm. Leaving yourself out in open view for others to take advantage of and cause further destruction will only lead to more ruin and chaos. Riding out the storm will allow things to settle and begin anew. Just like after thunderstorms there is a beautiful rainbow, so too will you find beauty and clarity from stepping away and out of the storm’s path – aka – stay away from drama. Don’t involve yourself in what doesn’t involve you. Even if it does involve you, you can consciously make a choice to put all thoughts/words/actions on hold until things mellow out.

The “Fragment” card is a reminder that despite whatever chaos is or may surround you, that part of your life is only a mere fragment of it. If your current chaos involves work, as an example, think about and focus on the peaceful and good parts of your life right now. Whether it be friendships, family, relationships, your creative projects – do NOT let whatever chaos is happening consume you and affect the other working and functional parts of your life.

You can come out of hiding at a time where you feel it is safe to do so. For now, it is only a bump in the road of life, and one that can be fixed. Take shelter, and take the time out to focus on the things that are right in the present moment.

This could also mean that in a certain situation you may only be receiving a fragment of the truth about something, and that is what is causing chaos. Don’t take things at face value – look beyond what is in front of you, and read between the lines. If your inner being is sensing that there is more to the situation than meets the eye, then you are probably correct. The chaos that you’re feeling towards this right now is due to this lack of complete information from the other party or individual. Again, take a step back and you will see that things have a way of answering themselves when doing so. The truth comes out whether anyone likes it or not. Divert your attention to something more positive in the meantime, such as a hobby or a positive role model, until the full story unravels.

“Phobias” from Doreen Virtue & Brian L. Weiss “Past Life Oracle Cards”

 

Since Full Moon’s are a good time to purge and release what is no longer necessary, I thought it appropriate to pull a card from the Past Life Deck to let you know what it is you truly need to let go of. Not just an issue in this lifetime, but one that stems from lifetimes previous. This can be something that your soul is still trying to recover from, or an important lesson that you must learn to face.
Before we are brought to Earth, our soul decides what it is we want to learn on this journey here. When we are physically born, we are born with a kind of amnesia (for lack of better words) and don’t remember the details of the soul contract we made. However, as you grow and experience life, you have the ability to awaken and recognize what patterns, situations, thoughts etc. seem familiar and significant. You have the capacity to break free from those things from past lives that are currently affecting your present life if necessary. Just because something “is” it doesn’t mean it always has to be that way. It’s up to you to discover if this is something you need to change in this life, or if it’s part of your new one.
What fears and phobias have a grip on you in this lifetime? Fear of letting others know who you truly are? Fear of drowning? Fear of commitment? Anything that has a strong presence in everything you do, is causing blockages, and is preventing you from moving ahead, it is now time to release. Sometimes these fears and phobias may seem irrational to you because you are unable to identify how or when they started in your present life. You are being asked to look beyond this lifetime and explore your previous lives to identify the source of it. Many times, when a lesson isn’t learned it will carry forth into the next life.
The good news is that you can be rid of these fears. They do not have to control you, it is now time to gain control of them. Is there a certain time period/time in history that you are drawn to? Perhaps, your soul once lived through that time and there is a correlation of something significant that happened there. Explore that life and what happened. You have the power to go back into your past lives and change the outcome of the situation. Time is an illusion – that’s why it’s possible.
As an example: Let’s say in this life you are afraid of committing to a long-term relationship. You find you are drawn to the medieval era and upon exploring that past life, discover that at one time you and your soul mate were happy and harmonious together, but then she/he was murdered. You were crushed, heartbroken and made yourself unable to love again for fear that whomever you loved would be taken away from you. You create a fear or fears that stem from your experience. They will carry through to other lives and continue to do so unless you break free of them and overcome them. In this example, you could go back into this life and change it in a number of ways. You can change it by altering the situation around the murder to make it so it didn’t even happen, or you can change it by seeing yourself forgiving, moving on, and finding love again. The choices are yours and this is merely an example.
You can do these exercises through past life regression or meditation. Ask your Spirit Guides to help you identify whom or what circumstance brought about these fears. If you aren’t sure how or where to begin – YouTube is an excellent source for guided past life regressions. If your issue is much stronger or may require further help, look into a certified hypnosis therapist or past life regression healer.

“Teaching and Learning” from Doreen’s Virtue’s “Archangel Oracle Cards”
Teaching and learning go hand in hand. Sometimes we are the teacher, sometimes we are the student. In this way, we are both. Right now there are lessons you have learned that it is now time to help teach others. You are wise and the valuable things you have learned can be useful to others. Don’t be afraid to use your voice now and speak out on it. There is someone (or some people) that need to hear your story. It is safe for you to share it. In the generosity of teaching others and sharing your experiences, you further strengthen your own healing process and the lessons attached to it. You  never know, some of your “students” may teach you a thing or two along the way.
If you’re currently facing a difficult situation or find yourself in the midst of one, stop and ask yourself what the lesson could be throughout this. An argument with a loved one, a recurring pattern or thought, attracting the same people to your circle – what are these things teaching you? If you don’t stop to understand the lesson behind it, then the pattern or situation will continue. You will continue to attract the same people or circumstances until you learn from it. Recognize who the teacher is in the situation and who the student is. Or perhaps, it is both. When you come to realize the lesson behind what you are facing, you will begin to see change and those patterns will drop away. You will awaken and become the teacher, able to help others who are stepping where you have once stepped.
This could also mean that you simply need to teach what you are passionate about. There is some subject or thing that sets your soul on fire. When you teach from your heart about the things that make you feel the most lit up inside, you will most definitely attract your tribe. Information comes to you when you need it, to give you fresh perspectives and material to teach after being the student and learning them yourself. You are meant to be a spokesperson for this topic, or meant to help others with it. Be open to continuing to learn about new things related to this subject in order to continue sharing it with your clientele or audience.

Smudge Yourself!

Sometimes it happens… a sudden shift in the air. One day you’re feeling cheery and bright, and then the next you have this odd sensation and aren’t feeling like yourself. But you can’t always put a label on what it is you’re feeling and why it is so. It feels like a cloud or an energy in your aura and space that you have no idea where it came from. Well, the good news is that you may not be imagining things. There is a possibility that someone else’s energy has made its way into your space and your aura, causing you to feel off kilter. It is usually a sudden change, and one that is easy to spot and change with practice.

I’ve experienced this feeling before and have developed my own ways of effectively handling it. Smudging is one tool I use to cleanse the air and energy and send it back to its source – we’ll get to what all that is shortly! Yesterday afternoon, I felt a change in mypalo-santo-1996155_1920 energetic field. The reason I knew these feelings were not my own was because I did not feel like myself. The emotions brought on were that of an emptiness, loneliness, and sadness. This is not at all how I feel towards my life, so I knew that someone else’s energy was in my space and I needed to do something about it.  If you’re the kind of person who is sensitive to energies (otherwise known as an empath) or intuitive and psychic in nature, then you may feel and recognize the energies of someone else in your personal space also. The key is to learn how to cleanse your space and take responsibility for what you will and will not allow into that space. Just because someone is sending negativity your way, that does not mean you need to accept it. Things only have as much power as you allow them to. Protection is not necessary when you learn how to control your own environment. And you can!

No matter where you go, who you spend your time with, and who you invite into your home or space, you are constantly being exposed to the energy and aura of others. Your own aura can span out as far as your outstretched arms. That means that whoever is in your space is blending with your aura, and you with theirs. Multiply that by several different people in one room and you’re meshing a lot of auras. Have you ever walked into a room and felt the energy of it, or get a hunch when something does or doesn’t feel right? This is because your aura is connecting with others and literally picking up on the other person’s vibes. With that being said, these energies can linger long after you have left this person’s space, or you theirs. However, you don’t necessarily need to be in the immediate vicinity of someone to pick up their energy, or have spent time with someone. Many times if someone is simply thinking of you in a negative light – such as out of anger, envy, jealousy – those vibrations are sent to you telepathically also.

The more you practice developing your intuitive skills, the more likely you are to spot and understand this feeling of an energetic shift. You also need to know and establish yourself as an individual and recognize who you are as a soul in order to spot when the feeling or feelings that come up are not your own. You create your space and come to know the energy of it and that’s what makes it easier to know when there is an energy there that isn’t aligning with yours. If you have to question at all whether the feelings are your own or someone else’s then its advisable to meditate more to connect with yourself first and develop your spiritual self.

Yes, we are all human and experience bad days from time to time. Just because things may feel a bit “off” it doesn’t always mean that it’s someone else’s energy or that you should point the finger of blame. Pointing fingers at anyone is not the answer, taking responsibility for your part is – whether it is your doing or someone else’s. The key is to notice how long and how intense the energy lingers. Some questions to ask yourself are:

  • Did it come on suddenly?
  • Were you already in a foul mood before you noticed it, or were you in a good mood?
  • Are you a generally happy person?
  • Are there personal things going on for you that may be affecting your judgment?
  • Were you just speaking with or hanging around someone whose energy felt off or is usually a little off?
  • Do you trust the person or people that you were around?
  • Is there someone that has you on their radar? (i.e. they always know what you’re up to, make offhand comments about things you do or say, etc.)

These are some questions to ask yourself to decipher whether the energy is your own because you yourself are feeling off, or someone else is feeling off and projecting that on you. It takes courage, but if you are feeling a little off and it’s just you, then admit that to yourself and meditate and do some gentle self-care to get back into your feel good zone. Eventually the off-feeling will subside. But if you have done all that and the weird energy continues or if you are certain that it isn’t you, then you do not have to be stuck with it and there are solutions. People have “stuff” they carry with them, but that stuff is not yours to carry. Sending that stuff back to them sets healthy boundaries for yourself and also gives it back to that person for them to handle on their own. Take ownership of your own space and be responsible for it. You dictate what comes and goes, you are in control.

WHAT IS SMUDGING?

Smudging, or “saging,” is an ancient ritual that is used today by many that involves the use of a bundle of herbs, most noticeably sage, in which the bundle is burned to create smoke that is used for cleansing, releasing, healing, purifying and renewing, though the practice of smudging can be used for many other things and is not limited to those intentions. The focus on this blog is more on cleansing and purifying energy that is not your own.

The act of burning the sage, transforms the physical (sage) into spiritual (smoke). This can be looked at as a transformation. Burning the sage is an act of calling upon help in transforming the energy into something else.

WHAT HERBS ARE USED IN SMUDGING?

Typically, sage is the most well-known herb used in smudging. However, it is becoming more and more common to use other herbs depending on the intentions you are trying to set or the energy you are trying to clear. I would recommend using plain old sage or white sage for cleansing and purifying the air and harsh energies. However, if you feel drawn to use other fresh herbs in a bundle then by all means use and trust your intuition. You can even use a combination of several. Some other herbs used in smudging are:

  • Cedar leaf
  • Rosemary
  • Lavender
  • Pine needles
  • Mullein
  • Mugwort (this is also used in Chinese Medicine – also known as moxabustion)
  • Dandelion
  • Basil
  • Frankincense
  • Myrrh

You can further research into each of the herbs above and their usage with smudging, or find an herb that matches what you are trying to accomplish in your ritual.

Sage is the most well known herb used for smudging because of its cleansing and purifying qualities. Native Americans would use sage in their spiritual ceremonies for that purpose and to aid in communing with spiritual ancestors and guides.

You can make your own smudge stick or bundle or purchase them at local metaphysical shops, or on Etsy or Amazon.

OTHER MATERIALS

When smudging, it is advisable to utilize an abalone shell for the smudge stick to rest in or to hold underneath. This is to prevent the ashes from dropping on the floor, or accidentally dropping the smudge stick directly onto the floor.

It’s also common to use a large feather to fan the smoke as you go about your ritual. Feathers are powerful symbols from the spirit world so in addition to the act itself, using a feather enhances the connection to the spiritual realm. I prefer using feathers that I find naturally in nature, as I consider them gifts from my Spirit Guides.

You also need to make sure you have something that provides the fire to light your smudge stick. If you plan on doing a lengthy smudging ceremony, then it helps to have a lighter or striker to use if you need to relight it. Otherwise, you can utilize matches or light a candle and place it over the flame. When the smudge stick catches you want to let it burn for a couple of seconds and then blow it out. The goal is to use the smoldering smoke NOT the flame.

HOW CAN I PRACTICE SMUDGING?

SET AN INTENTION

Before you begin the ritual, think about what it is that you want to release or cleanse. When you have established what it is, it helps to repeat this affirmation as you physically perform the act of smudging in each area. For example, if you are looking to simply cleanse your house of negative energies you can say something like “I now cleanse and release this space of any negative energies as they are no longer welcome here. There is only room for love and positive energy. Please leave now.” The words can be anything you want them to be, but it helps solidify your purpose in what you are doing and the act of repeating it strengthens the connection to it. Say whatever comes natural to you and don’t think too hard about it. You know and understand inside what it is you are looking to accomplish, always be truthful and honest with yourself.

Prayer for Cleansing

BEFORE SMUDGING

Before you smudge, aside from making sure your tools are handy you should go around to each space that you plan on smudging and open a window (or door to the outside if you do not have windows). The main reason for this is because the energy that your clearing needs somewhere to go, otherwise it will just keep on lingering! Opening the windows and/or door allows that energy to leave your space and be brought to the spiritual realm for transformation. Bonus: it gets fresh air circulating in your home and feels so good! Since the herbs are very fragrant it also helps air out the herbaceous smell if you aren’t so used to it.

Make sure that before you smudge you are not rushed to finish the process and will not be interrupted. Sit quietly and take a few deep breaths to center yourself before beginning. It helps to have a calm frame of mind going into it.

THINGS YOU CAN SMUDGE

Your House – It’s always a good idea to sage your house or living space whenever you:

  • Purchase a new home, to rid prior energies
  • Before you have company over to create an inviting atmosphere
  • After your company leaves to release any lingering energies
  • Before and after clients if you work from home and have strangers frequently in your space
  • Every so often to generally cleanse the air and keep it fresh (it certainly doesn’t hurt)

Pick a space that you would like to start in, light your smudge stick and use your feather to gently sweep the smoke around the room while stating your intention. Pay particular attention to the four corners of each room as they collect the most energy. After you have swept the smoke around the entire room, finish up the room by guiding it towards the open window or door and asking it to please leave your space. Proceed into the next room and so forth and so on until your house is complete. Leave time to do this as it may take a bit. Don’t forget hallways, garages, attics, crawlspaces, and other nooks and crannies. Once complete you can close all windows and doors.

Objects – Similar to cleansing your house except the focus this time is on specific objects such as furniture, toys, memorabilia, keepsakes and jewelry to name a few examples. It is a good idea to sage objects when:

  • You buy something at a garage sale
  • You receive a gift from someone
  • You find something by chance and choose to keep it
  • If you find yourself drawn to it in a negative way
  • Feel that this object is the source of bad energy

Light your smudge stick, state your intention and sweep the smoke around the object on all sides: left, right, top, bottom, front, back. Guide the smoke towards the open window or door.

Yourself – It’s important to sage yourself as well. In my experience above, I used this method because the energy I was feeling was circulating in my aura. It is a good idea to sage yourself when:

  • You are not feeling like yourself, with no particular explanation as to why
  • You feel like you are attracting negative situations or people to you
  • When you spend time around others whose energy you may not be fond of
  • In general for overall well-being and spiritual health

To do this method, stand with your feet rooted to the earth and light your smudge stick. Holding the sage a few inches in front of you beginning at your root chakra, gently sweep the smoke in a circular motion stating your intention and asking to cleanse your root chakra. Continue this method for all your chakras, working up to your crown chakra. Once you have done this, swirl the smoke all around you, including passing it between your legs and underneath your root to cleanse all areas. Direct the energy out towards the open windows/doors. If you’re not familiar with the chakras, head over to my Chakras Section to find out where these areas are and familiarize yourself with these energy centers.

Your Car – If you are in your car a lot it is also a good space to cleanse because chances are when you are going to and from places and interacting with people it is the first place aside from  your aura that can absorb energy. Let’s not forget about road rage! Smudging your car is good when:

  • You are going to be spending a lot of time in your car traveling
  • You are chauffeuring or driving someone else around
  • You are entering your car after spending time somewhere stressful
  • You have been the source of unfortunate events such as accidents, fender benders or victim of road rage

To do this ritual, opening all of the windows saves you time since it’s a much smaller space and the energy doesn’t have as far to travel. Light your smudge stick, state your intention and begin your ritual (don’t forget the trunk). When you are done with the inside of the vehicle, continue by walking around the outside of your car entirely and sweeping the smoke around the outside as well.

Your Work Space – If you don’t work from home, smudging your work space is good when:

  • You’re having difficult concentrating or finishing tasks on time
  • You spend a lot of time at your desk or in the same space

Unless you work in an environment where your boss let’s you use the traditional smudge stick method, there may be a chance that you are unable to do so due to hazards in the workplace (especially in a corporate environment). See below for a list of alternative methods to cleansing your space.

Other People – Yep! You can also sage other people. In this case I am referring to those people that you live with on a daily basis. Just like you, they are a part of your living space and bring in their own energies from the day and have their own aura. Following the same procedure as smudging yourself, you can also perform the ritual on the other members of your household including your pets. Since you all share this same space there is no use in doing all that hard work saging yourself and your whole house if the energy could be lingering on another member of your household. It’s great if you have family members or roommates that are open and willing to do this, but if not I would recommend one of the different methods below.

smoke-731152_1920

ALTERNATIVES TO SMUDGING

Sometimes unfortunate circumstances prevent the ability to be able to use the traditional smudging method. Things such as renting a space and not being able to freely do as you please, living in a space with fire hazards prohibiting the use of fire/flames/smoke, living with individuals not willing to participate. There are other alternatives to using a smudge stick and burning sage, such as:

  • Palo Santo Stick – If you like the idea of using smoke but are not fond of the herbaceous smell of sage, you can use palo santo to burn instead. This wood is native to Central and South America and is used in the same way as sage. I happen to love the smell of this when lit as it lends notes of citrus, pine and wood similar to cedar and smells like a natural burning fire.
  • Sage Candle – If you’re not privy to smoke at all but like ambiance, then a sage candle could be an alternative for you. Though you won’t get the effects of the smoke to do the cleansing, the continuous fire and flickering flame is also a good tool for transformation. To make your ritual more significant you can write down the things you want to release on paper and then burn it in fire.
  • Sage Essential Oil – If you don’t like fire or smoke or are unable to use those methods in your space then diffusing sage essential oil can be beneficial. This could work in your car, your work space or in your home. The essential oil still cleanses and purifies the air and promotes spiritual transformation. I sometimes like using this method if I am pressed for time, or if I want to do a deep cleanse letting the essential oils diffuse for several hours.
  • Sage Incense – A less intense version of the smoke, but you still get the smoke and use of sage. You can also use your feather to sweep the smoke of the incense as you would the smudge stick.
  • Sage Spray – You can make your own at home sage spray using an empty water bottle, water and sage essential oil. For every ounce of water add 5-10 drops of essential oil. It’s up to you to add to your desired scent depending on how strong you prefer it to be. This method is good for use in any circumstance.
  • Fresh Sage – If you live among people that just can’t tolerate the smell of the smoke or sage or are unable to do any other method, you can always hang a bundle of sage above your entrance doorway. This helps keep all the other bad energy out so that when you walk in, everything is left at the door.

WHAT YOU MAY EXPECT AFTER SMUDGING

It is not uncommon to notice an immediate lift in the atmosphere after you sage yourself or your chosen space. This morning after doing my ritual, I felt an instant change in the air and felt like myself again. That’s another way you will come to tell that this energy was not your own. You can literally feel the heaviness and the weight of that energy being lifted off of you and out of your space.

You may also notice that in the coming days ahead, people with lower energies may try to “test you.”  If you’ve ever heard the expression “misery loves company” this is what I’m referring to. This is because you have raised your vibration higher, and lower energies can sense that. They may try to do what they can to bring you back down to their level. The best way to handle this is to send them love and light and go about your way with your newfound peace. Remember – you are responsible for your space! You don’t have to let in what you don’t want to let in. The power lies within. And that’s it! Hope this works for you as much as it has worked for me over the years.

“We are so Connected” from Doreen Virtue and James Van Praagh’s “Talking to Heaven” Mediumship Cards

This week’s message comes from your Guardian Angel on the other side! The person I’m referring to in this case is someone that was very special to you on this Earth and in this lifetime. Someone who was physically here with you and that you knew very well. This person has been with you through many lifetimes aside from this one and has been both your teacher and student. You were brought together on this Earth again to carry forth more lessons that you both needed to learn together and also separately. It could also be a beloved pet or friend and is not limited to just family.

Just because they are not here with you physically anymore, it does not mean they are not always around you spiritually. In fact, this message is reiterating that yes, the signs and symbols you receive are real and that they are always lovingly watching over you. Your loved one has never left you.

The connection between you remains strong and is actually quite stronger than when this person was physically here. This is because there are certain limitations we face as physical beings. They now know and see everything from the other side and have now come to understand that all things are not coincidental and that they are synchronized. For this reason, they are guiding you to trust the feelings you get and the messages you receive when you feel as though they are nearby. They are gently nudging you in the proper direction of your soul path and purpose.

If you are having a hard time connecting with your loved one on the other side, carry angelite crystal on you to further strengthen your bond and connection. The physical bond has ended because they aren’t physically here, but the spiritual one has not. Your guardian is waiting for you to be open to receiving their help and maintaining this powerful bond. All you need to do is ask and open your heart.

Please know that your loved one from above is always around you, and that you are never alone. In those moments that you think of them lovingly, know that they are also doing the same because of your strong connection. They see your thoughts and understand your heart. Right now in this moment they are sending you unconditional love. Be open to the signs you receive this week and trust in them. You are being divinely guided.

“Chaos and Conflict” from Colette Baron Reid’s “Wisdom of the Oracle” Divination Cards

 

Before things can be smooth sailing, sometimes they have to get a little messy. There may be someone or something that you feel you are up against and the key to handling this is not to fight or flight, but to take shelter. Trying hard to prove your point to another who is not on the same page as you and refuses to see your side of things will only create more chaos and conflict. The same goes for them as they may be trying to get you to see their point of view in which you may be unwilling. You have your side, and they have theirs. This could be pertaining to any relationship, whether romantic or not. Adding fuel to the fire is not recommended and it’s better for you to sit this battle out. Try and understand what the other person’s reasoning/thoughts/dilemma is. It doesn’t mean you need to agree but it’ll make it less stressful for you to deal with, and help you move on from it quicker. Take the focus off of the chaos itself and bring it into yourself. Recognize that no matter what the outcome of this is, you are growing from it and learning new lessons. Can it be negotiated? If not, then agree to disagree and move on!
This conflict and chaos can also signify chaos within yourself and your thoughts. You’ve heard the expression “what you think you attract”, and understand the law of attraction… so why are you creating stress in your mind that isn’t even real?! I know it’s easier said then done, but if you’re making things seem more chaotic then they actually are and exaggerating them, then that is what you’ll get. Keep your mind focused on the good that is happening around you, or the people in your life that make you laugh. Take a walk outside to clear your head and connect with nature and get yourself back to center. Things may seem chaotic to you on the outside right now, but they really aren’t. All is well!
If things have changed or are changing drastically in your life – something is/was taken away from you, you’ve lost something, ending a relationship, etc. – understand that things have shaken you to awaken you. Yes, this is difficult and right now things are chaotic and messy, but after every storm comes a rainbow. It is not a forever thing and you will come out of this just fine. Let the dust settle, take shelter and let the storm pass.

April 2018 – Blue Lace Agate

blue-lace-agate

Blue Lace Agate always gets me feeling dreamy whenever I look at it or hold it because of that beautiful soft blue color. I knew the minute I saw mine three years ago that I needed to have it in my collection. I didn’t realize its strength and power until I began using it. It’s now one of those crystals that I carry on me several times a week, depending on what I’m doing and where I’m off to, especially if communication with others is involved or I’m working on creative projects. Blue Lace Agate is not just about any communication, it is more importantly geared towards open and honest communication from a loving place. Speaking your truth. Blue is a color of peace, loyalty and trust and these things will be strengthened as well.

This crystal is great for communication of all kinds as it pertains to the Throat Chakra. If you’re the kind of person that feels as though you have trouble speaking up for yourself and sharing your true feelings, then this crystal should be added to your daily “crystal-scription.” It will help you open that Throat Chakra right up so that you are able to express your emotions openly and honestly and have the courage to do so. If you find that despite using this crystal, you are still having trouble expressing yourself, then evaluate the strength of your Sacral Chakra as well. The Sacral Chakra governs our emotions in general (Carnelian or Orange Calcite can help open this up). By balancing and opening both the Throat and Sacral Chakras, you should be able to bring those feelings up and out, rather than keeping them locked inside. Repressed emotions are usually not a very good thing to hold on to as they have the potential to manifest as physical symptoms later on.

The Throat Chakra is also responsible for our sense of hearing, so if you feel you are not heard when you speak to someone or to a group, consider using Blue Lace Agate. It can help you effectively communicate what you need to without being rude or disruptive to others by giving you the ability to speak up. It is a great crystal to use when speaking in public, or for those individuals who communicate on a large scale on a daily or more than usual basis. It helps you to get your words across smoothly, engage the audience and really have them not just hear what you’re saying, but listen. Bonus: it helps quell the nerves and promote calm. If you are lacking confidence and courage, carry around crystals that open your Solar Plexus Chakra as well, as this is the chakra that holds our personal power. Citrine is a great one for this – see my blog on Citrine here – December 2017 – Citrine. When used in conjunction, this dream team is a force to be reckoned with.

Blue Lace Agate can also help with communication and hearing beyond the physical realm – clairaudience. From personal experience, I would have to say this crystal enhances my abilities further to be able to hear messages from the Spirit Realm. It’s a great stone to connect with Spirit and open to your Angels and Spirit Guides. The light blue color is likened to a Heavenly blue sky. That’s another reason why this crystal holds a special place in my heart.

Blue Lace Agate can also help on the opposite end of the spectrum, for those that have a habit of talking too much. Too much gossip, too much negativity – you know exactly the kind of people I am talking about. These aren’t just people who love to talk, they are the ones that seem to let words slip out of their mouths without first thinking of what they want to say, causing hurt feelings. The “Woops! No filter!” people. It’s never really an ok thing to hurt someone’s feelings. If you recognize this about yourself and think to yourself, “shoot I really need to work on that” then consider using Blue Lace Agate. Don’t worry, it won’t totally shut you down. But it will bring about balance to that area so that you have the ability to know when to speak your mind, and when some things are better left unsaid.

Physically, this crystal can help with issues pertaining to the throat (sore throat, laryngitis, strept throat, etc.), vocal cords, thyroid imbalance, tonsils, neck, swollen glands, and upper lungs.

Hope you enjoy this crystal as much as I do!

“Eight of Spring” from Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine’s “Fairy Tarot Cards”

 

You’ve heard of becoming stressed from a lot of negative things happening, but have you ever heard of becoming stressed because of too many good things that are happening? Well that’s happening! It’s stress nonetheless, but it’s a good stress this time around. A “keep you on your toes” kind of stress. Things may be happening so fast for you right now that you don’t know if you’re coming or going, and feel overwhelmed from all of the exciting and great new changes that have taken place. Don’t let this get you down. Now is the time for you to learn how to juggle and multitask all of these things. This intense Full Moon is bringing about A LOT of changes and dramatic shifts, so it’s natural that the energy tied to it is dramatic also – a.k.a. stress.
It’s essential that you learn how to juggle it all and make everything a priority. Remember, these things that happened are a blessing. Rather then look at it as “oh my goodness what did I get myself into, I can’t handle all of this,” look at it as “wow, I can’t believe all of these amazing things have happened just from my manifesting them!” Make to-do lists if you need to, break your schedule up into timelines so you are able to delegate a designated amount of time to each thing. When you have a better handle on your day, you’ll be able to better handle juggling everything. You have the energy and drive right now to be able to do all of that.
If you’ve been sitting around like “nothing has happened for me” or wondering when in the heck something is going to give.. GET READY. This is a time for rapid change. Again, this full moon is bringing in a lot of that intense energy (I can definitely feel it, Gemini rising). You may be jobless one day and then making tons of money the next, single and feeling alone and meet your soulmate the next day. Be ready, expect it and be ready for the energy that it will bring also. It’s all great things.
Don’t fear any changes that happen as they are all for your highest good. Change can be scary because we never know what lies on the other side – it’s the fear of the unknown. It’s a reasonable fear. How do we know that what’s happening is good? My way of handling this is knowing that any changes that happen are because my Spirit Guides have heard my wishes, my dreams, my manifestations and they are bringing it all to fruition. They have your best interests at heart and want you to have those things. If you have faith in them, they will show you and they will guide you. Sometimes things need time to change, and then other times it swoops in and happens suddenly. Now is the suddenly part. Grab on and enjoy the ride!
