The energy of this week is so powerful! I am loving the summer solstice vibes and am excited to teach my workshop this weekend. This week's energy theme has you making the shift into a more energized and illuminated state. But keep in mind it will continue to be in the energy of this year where it happens in a gradual, slow and steady build. So no, you won't become the road runner overnight, and yes, patience will continue to be a theme this year, but you will feel relieved sensing this increasing wave of energy. The elementals compare it to a hike, the first half of this year had you climbing uphill, right now and for the summer you are enjoying the view, and then in the fall and winter, you get to enjoy your walk down.
The energy and patterns this week coming up for clearing have been around fear of success. Blocks that are preventing you from feeling comfortable expanding into new territory and soaring to new heights have surfaced. Lack of confidence and past disappointments are ready to release as you reconnect with your dreams and wants. This is the perfect week and weekend, especially Thursday, to sit in ceremony and let spirit shed light on some important awarenesses. Here are some questions spirit recommends meditating on:
This is a great week to get out of your own way and let spirit lead. It's one thing to wish for what you want, it's another to will it into being. And this is the time for your wishing and willing to come together and make magic. It's never too late to make a change, to heal, and to grow. This is your week to cast light into any remaining shadows of the past as you declare it time to emerge and fly high as the brave soul you have become.
This week's energy theme has many people feeling confused and conflicted. This new moon in Gemini asks you to acknowledge, accept, and honour all aspects of yourself. Many people find Geminis to be confusing and contradicting characters because they can appear to be two people, and others wonder, which one are you? Geminis are often self-conflicted between having the awareness of different aspects of themselves and struggling to know which is their truth. They are adept at indecision and changing their minds. The truth is that they are all those aspects, as we all are. And this journey is about honouring all of them and finding balance. The affirmation and practice this week is: I mean what I say and I say what I mean. Do your words and actions match? Are you living an authentic life?
This picture above was taken as I was writing this blog and happened to glance over at my phone. It was a moment of manifestation and confirmation. The number sign of 11:11 saying pay attention to your thoughts, and the lioness representing balance. The lioness is my power animal, she is equally fierce and lovingly maternal. I'm a Leo and my sister is a Gemini. We are best friends and part of what makes our energy such a friendly and supportive match is that we both relate to and share an air of mystery. I've had people express their confusion to me, not understanding how in their words, I can be strong and sweet at the same time. If the depth of my fierceness comes out they then think my prior sweetness must have been a lie. And isn't this exactly what is being called out on the world stage right now? We are breaking down this barrier and belief that you can only be this or that. You are good or bad, right or wrong, things are black or white, blah, de blah, blah. We are all masculine and feminine, we are all darkness and light. If you are making others uncomfortable with your healthy balance of power, you are doing your soul work, so keep it up! The human ego based illusion of comfort wants to label things, to put you in a box, to know what to expect, to have you behave a certain way. But it's all b.s. When you are honouring your emotions and processing them properly, you are always flowing from one aspect of yourself to the next in divine rhythm. And that's what Gemini has to remind us of and to offer us. Gemini is dragging that twin out of the shadow and saying, don't forget about this part.
This week asks you to go inward and put your focus back on you. Take some space and time to reconnect with your personal truth. Ask spirit for help in bringing your inner and outer worlds into harmony and alignment. Ask for support in honouring all aspects of yourself without judgment. Commit to a deeper level of authenticity. When you stop boxing yourself in and pull all aspects of yourself out from the shadows and into the light, you're an unstoppable force to be reckoned with. And all that depression, anxiety, and fear energy won't hold power over you anymore. Because you'll turn around and give that piece the big old hug it really wants and needs. You will kill it with kindness knowing it's just another beautiful aspect of you finding its strength.
The terms that have been surfacing repeatedly this week are self-permission and sabotage. The current energy theme is asking you to practice discipline. And it's brought up patterns for clearing around needing or waiting for permission. Spirit reminds you that you came here to shine your inner light as bright as you can, and you don't need permission to do so. It's your destiny to be the best and brightest version of you. So check in and see if there are any blocks preventing you from elevating a relationship in your life. It may be your relationship with work, health, love, or all of the relationships in your life. Do you feel fearful that you'll outgrow people in your life? Do you feel scared that the more you have, the more you'll have to lose? Or perhaps you've burdened yourself with way too much pressure and are overwhelmed to make any change. Take some time to sit with spirit and give yourself permission to ignite your light and shine it out that much brighter, see it cut through the darkness of fear. Remind yourself that you are safe to shine and that sitting on the sidelines isn't safe, it's settling.
Because you are being asked to practice discipline the sabotage piece may primarily take the form of procrastination. It can also show up in various other ways such as comfort eating, self-medicating, and perfectionism. Try to be disciplined while remaining balanced. A message that has also been coming up is the need to have more fun. You may be feeling a bit burnt out or are struggling to get re-energized. Spirit says just start having more fun. The fun factor is also what will maintain balance so you don't dodge the discipline. If you aren't having fun and staying connected to why you are honouring the discipline, you'll lose your drive. Stay focused on your goal and the reward, and enjoy reaching it.
There has been a lot of collective consciousness clearing and it's important to pray and trust in spirit right now. Be conscious of not holding sadness, pain or grief in your heart over what you feel isn't happening. But rather feel and process it so you can clear space for the drive and discipline to work its magic, focusing on what you can make happen. Meet others where they are at but with the intention of lifting energy as opposed to joining it. The sabotage piece will want you to slip into the energy versus bringing your light to stand beside it. And that's why the self-permission is so important, it allows you to honour others while standing strong in your self. The elementals say, be like a tree, that sways joyfully in the breeze with the others but never forsakes its own roots.
Authentic and fearless self-expression is the name of the game this week. The breakthrough you've experienced this month of May has led to a significant heart opening. A heart opening is as beautiful as it sounds. It means you have moved through fear and have willingly accessed a higher level of receiving, love and blessings. But a heart opening can also be accompanied by feeling a greater sense of exposure, vulnerability and fear. This is why you will need to practice trust and rely on resources that create safety. Nurture yourself, relax, and love yourself up this week. Ask spirit to help you let go of any defences or layers of false protection that were created to keep you feeling safe but in fact have kept you guarded. This heart opening is birthing a new fearlessness. You are always evolving and therefore are always becoming a better version of yourself. And this week you are connecting with this newly birthed higher vibrational self. Use an affirmation or mantra that anchors you into safety, such as, 'I am safe in my blessings.'
You may feel the shift into this more authentic self by a subtle increase in sensitivity. You may notice you are drawn to different foods, your appetite changes slightly, you are more sensitive to noise, you are more aware of your bodies reactions to different energies and environments. You may need to revisit or increase your boundaries to honour this new shift and to be sure to maintain or strengthen your daily spiritual practice. You may find you no longer feel the need for certain vices. As the elementals say, 'You are showing your naked self to the world, without a care!' But your naked self is your true self, your soul. This is an abundant shift for as when you move from your heart you are choosing your most blessed path.
The throat, third eye, and heart chakra are the big ones connected to this current energy theme, so pay attention to them. Any blocks to your self-expression are wanting to be cleared. If you have a symptom connected to the throat and voice, it's time to check in. What is it you aren't saying? Or how can you express it differently? Communication isn't just words and conversation, it can be honoured through writing, painting, singing, talking aloud to spirit, and more. If your eyes are more tired than usual or you have a headache, it's time to check in with the third eye. Are you afraid to see the future? Are you avoiding looking at a situation that needs attention and healing? If your breath is shallow, your chest tight, and you feel sad, it's time to check in with the heart chakra. Is there old hurt and sadness that needs to be released? Are you fearful of going for great versus good?
This is a time to be selfish in a healthy way and to choose you. Allow yourself to be your top priority this week. Indulge in some self-care and downtime, guilt-free. Play, laugh and connect with your inner child. Enjoy the little things, it's a great time to simplify and focus on your personal life. Work your quirks! Let your eccentricities shine as you embrace your unique self. You are not only lovable, just as you are, you are love.
This week's theme is coming through loud and clear, my friends! A trust issue is the big one that is surfacing right now. What are you having a hard time trusting in? Love? Humanity? Yourself? The universe? This super fun ball of fear that you've been bouncing around has been leading you to this golden nugget of a deep-rooted trust issue. The good news? You've peeled back enough layers that you can now find yourself at the heart of the matter, and this is where the magic happens. Like a snake, you have been shedding your skin, tying up loose ends, and leaving the past behind you. But in order for you to move forward in confidence, you need to address and heal trust issues that are holding you back. You have to clean house before you can grow, letting go of old attachments and emotions that no longer serve you. There has been a similar image repeating in sessions, and it is that of a ball and chain. Spirit shows people trying to drag this heaviness forward, trying to fix it, and trying to change it. And the more frustrated, tired, and angry people grow at this relentless and unyielding weight, spirit patiently holds loving space and awaits their realization. Spirit waits for them to come to an awareness that all they need to do is unhook from the chain, move forward, and set themselves free. Ask for help. This isn't a time to fake strength and go it alone. This is a time to seek support and to find the strength in your vulnerability. Don't dictate how your help appears, simply ask for it. Every time you find yourself in fear, ask for help, and for source to shift your fear into faith.
An animal symbol that has been popping up, literally in our backyard, is Robin. Robin reminds you that you have to make a nest before you can lay your eggs. And that it's important to pick the right place for your nest so you have the safety and protection to enjoy your growth. You are finding your faith in a whole new empowering light because you are finding it within you. You are asked to accept the truth that you are source light, love, and abundance. When the fear creeps up and the ego wants to challenge you, you have to remind yourself, I AM all that I am asking for. Use your I AM affirmations this week and feel the truth run through your veins as you repeatedly bring yourself from fight to flow. I speak from experience when I remind you that the universe has your back. Source has always provided for me when I've needed it and every fearful moment I've faced, I've come out grateful and better for having gone through it.
You've got this. The light in the dark is the reminder that you are not alone. This theme has been resonating strongly with many people, take comfort in that. We are all in this together, all moving through the same growing pains. If you can't quite connect with your confidence and faith yet, let spirit hold it for you until you are ready. Moving forward, be conscious of what you admire and notice in others, for this is what you are growing and expanding within you. As you continue to ease out of this transition you are going to be aligned with your inner truth more fully than ever before. You will not give thought to competition and fear that there isn't enough to go around. You will stride forward with your new gift of self-belief.
There has been a lot of fear clearing and inner child healing this week as we are addressing root chakra issues. The root chakra, your base chakra, can have a huge impact on your security and safety. Garnet is a crystal that has come up repeatedly to work with clients this week. It's great for support in the root chakra, the removal of obstacles, and enhancing a feeling of protection, stability, and calm. There is a lot of heavy energy being cleared out of the lower body, mostly the legs, which is another sign of root chakra and physical blockage. One of the easiest ways to support getting your energy moving and releasing from the lower body is to put on some music and dance it out. Shake it off, literally.
The primary symptom showing up to be addressed is depression and it's accompanied by fear. It's important to remember that depression is unprocessed emotion. It can be anger turned inward and it can be a grieving process that never completed. You may find your body speaking to you more loudly than usual as it tries to get your attention. The main issue here is creating a strong foundation so you can enhance your feelings of safety. And with this new moon and making the move into Taurus, a sign that is happiest when they are feeling secure, enjoying earthly pleasures, and bringing home the bacon, you can bet you don't get to be dismissive about this root reboot. Projection and shadows are being amplified so be extra gentle with yourself and others. Self-responsibility is being called for in the form of self-care and self-esteem. Which is why there has also been a lot of solar plexus work to support willpower and confidence.
If things are slowing down and certain areas are stalling right now it's because you are in a process of ending a significant phase in your life. A new phase is ready to begin so don't pressure yourself to figure it all out and have the answers ahead of time. But rather take good care of your mind, body, and soul. Treat yourself, connect with your value, and consciously ease yourself into decisions. I love Taurus men, my dad is a Taurus, and I'm marrying a Taurus. They are naturals at making people feel safe. They can be resistant to change at first, the bull pacing the ring, making sure it's the right move at the right time. But once they are ready and feel confident in their decision, they charge, and watch out world, because they will hit their target! So right now isn't a time to take rushed action but to be aware, to suss things out, and to plan for the new path that is opening up. You are worthy of the gift of time, enjoy it.
This week's energy theme is asking you to be aware of playing the long game. And this requires everyone's "favourite" virtue, patience. You could liken the energy of this year to a boot camp. You are getting your mind, body, and soul in greater shape. This is your year to dig in, address, and advance things that enhance your self-confidence and soul's purpose. But this can be difficult to do when the rewards need to be waited on. Your inner child may get a bit petulant and sulk, wanting results now. A deep trust, surrender, and faith need to be cultivated. And a steady practice of patience.
Dreams have been extra vivid lately. You may have noticed you are having more vivid dreams than usual and are remembering them more clearly than usual. Some emotions that are surfacing this week are anger, worry, sadness, and fear. It's an important practice to honour these emotions just as you would with passion, peace, joy, and love. There is no such thing as a bad emotion for they are all connected. What starts out as grief can transform and heal into celebration, anger into passion. We often judge, suppress and reject the heavier side of these emotions but they are so necessary because they help us know what is imbalanced so that we can create healing and harmony. Albeit it's not always fun to feel anger, sadness, and worry. But if you are willing to sit with your emotion and surrender to it, it will begin to process and even though it takes time, you will feel things start to lighten instantly.
The common thread this week was a pattern of fighting surfacing to be shifted. You are being asked to stop fighting things and start flowing with them. There is such a fight mentality in the world right now. Fight this illness, fight that belief, fight the system. But rather than fight, we are being asked to surrender, accept and flow. This allows you to shine a light down and into something as opposed to getting lost in its center of negativity. The elementals say the intention is good but the approach can be off kilter. What are you fighting right now? Is it money? Love? Health? This shows you the area that is asking for work to be done and striving to achieve harmony. It may seem like it's working against you but in fact, it is trying to answer a prayer.
You are being reminded that healing is a journey, not a destination. When you go through something heavy, especially if the experience was longer term, you need to be patient with yourself. It's unfair and unrealistic to ask yourself to heal in a matter of days or weeks. You need months or more, you need to take your time and surrender to the process. You need to prioritize your self-care and replenish. Have compassion for what you have gone through and let go of arriving at an outcome. The journey never ends. One layer is addressed and another layer surfaces. It's bringing the right attitude to each layer that can be a struggle. Pray, have a daily spiritual practice, prioritize self-care, and be gentle with yourself.
If you put unnecessary pressure on yourself this could be a very tiring year. But if you keep working to swing things back to center and ask for patience, the rewards will be waiting and will be worth it. You don't have to lie to yourself. You can say I don't like this and I hate waiting but... I trust spirit to give me patience and the strength to persevere. Because even though it doesn't feel like it right now I know this is all happening for me, not to me.
This week's theme asks you to venture out into the unknown, or at least the less familiar. You are being asked to take a risk, a leap of faith. Can you push past the fear and trust in your bright future? Everything you want is making its way to you but you have to choose to let it in. You have to know deep down in your bones that you deserve it and that you can handle it. It won't always be easy but it will be worth it.
Things have been a little heavy lately and that's because you've been grieving what is over and complete. There are endings that you may have found yourself fighting and resisting because they've been familiar for years and part of a significant cycle. And you've been feeling the push to close the chapter fully and move forward in a new light. But this doesn't mean you forget, reject or dismiss the past. Quite the opposite, it means you acknowledge, accept and honour it. This week you are addressing some big fear blocks. All the reasons why you shouldn't or can't do something are coming out of the woodwork. And God bless them! Because they are pushing you to choose great versus good. They are forcing you to self-examine and clear out what you don't have space for anymore. This is a year of you. A time to get clear on what you want and where you are ready to go. You can't base this off anyone else, and you can't base it off where you've been, you can only base it off that fire inside of you that is forever seeking more fuel. The one that steadily whispers, feed me Seymour.
What pisses you off? This is showing you what you are done with. What frustrates you? This is showing you what you want more of. What scares you? This is showing you where you need to go. It's time to take flight, my friends. You are being called to look in the mirror and face some hard truths and harsh realities. At the top of these is the knowing that the only person who can make it happen for you, is you. No matter what support the universe has lined up for you, and no matter how bloody fantastic you know it can be, you have to let it in. If you aren't going to answer the door, someone else will. If you aren't going to do the work, no one can do it for you. I'm shown an image of someone taking a seat on a throne. It's time to step up and claim what is yours. It's time to stop playing small and start making more magic.
One of the biggest issues I witness with shadow work, which has us face and process our dark parts, is that people get stuck there. A primary focus of my energy work is not just helping people through their shadows but out of them and into the new light they've helped birth. This week is magnifying any remaining shadows so you know what you need to harness and use in order to reap your rewards. Go into your shadows but don't lose sight of the fact that they are temporary. They aren't meant to swallow you up, alternatively, ignoring them has this effect! But they are meant to propel you, moving through your shadows is a powerful initiation into your deepest self and innate magic. Have you lost your get up and go? Maybe you went into a shadow but have yet to realize you've gotten stuck there. This is your signal that it's time to come out and find the light again because your faith is ready to be rewarded. If you notice others resisting or pushing back against your changes you're probably on the right track. Change triggers people because it challenges them to face their own growth or lack thereof. Your very presence can be profoundly triggering whether there is awareness or not. But with great risk comes great reward. So what do you say, are you ready to step farther away from the past and ignite more light?
Do you want a medium, psychic, channeller or healer? And what is the difference? I see many people get understandably confused not knowing what type of healer they are looking for, or what service they need.
You'll hear multiple titles used for one healer, or listed on one website because most healers have multiple strengths and offer more than one service. But not everyone is clear on what they offer versus their capabilities. For example, I'm all of the titles listed below but I don't offer all of them as services. I always recommend it is best to seek someone who is trained in the area you're looking for and who does that work full-time. For example, I can do mediumship but I'm not interested in offering mediumship readings so if someone contacts me looking for that I recommend they seek a full-time medium who has made that training their priority. It's difficult to label yourself as a healer because you're trying to take something that exists without limits and put it into a context so it can be understood and received as much as possible. So as a practitioner who may be capable of multiple healing modalities you want to choose what best describes your strengths and services in order to reach your audience and connect with the right clients to be of optimal service. So let's quickly look at some of the most common titles you'll see.
When you're looking for a practitioner you first and foremost want to trust your gut. You will be drawn to the right healers at the right time if you are willing to ask, listen and trust. If you aren't sure ask the practitioner if what you're looking for is what they offer. A healer in their integrity will be honest and if they're not the right fit they'll encourage you to keep looking. I have no problem turning away clients that aren't a resonant match as it's in the greatest good for both of us. There are plenty of qualified healers offering a wide variety of services so ask spirit to connect you with the right one for you and follow the flow of synchronicity as you are led to them.
How many of you feel like this red panda looks? The weekly card posted on Monday encouraged you to forge ahead. And the current energy theme has you addressing and possibly struggling with your willpower. Its been a challenging week with increasing feelings of resistance. You may have been working harder than usual to get things done and to see your obligations through. Make sure you balance your energy out with some well-deserved rest and reward this weekend!
There are many things that can impact your willpower. You may be tired and need to recuperate from a stressful experience and time. You may be moving through something karmic that is less than desirable but necessary. You may have had your willpower stepped on and are holding emotions such as anger, resentment, guilt and hurt. When you are working to get back in touch with your willpower, or to boost it, it's important to be patient with yourself. If you had a long stressful year with no breaks you're not going to regain it all in a few weeks or even a few months. Sometimes your mind, body, and soul just need to be where they're at. And alternatively, sometimes in order to get your willpower back, you need to push yourself a bit in order to break through the old slog you've been in. Trust your gut about which one resonates for you right now. Mindfulness and a sense of humour are your best allies during these times. Take them with you into the weekend to achieve balance and harmony. When you feel like you are inundated, or that you are fighting a serious lack of motivation, laugh. Get in touch with the absurdity of life and appreciate how colourful and crazy the world can be. It's a balance between knowing when to dig deep and knowing when to throw your hands up in surrender. This week and weekend you'll probably find yourself on both ends of the spectrum at some point.
If something is important to you, dig for it and fight for it, no regrets. If you're not that bothered by something, laugh it off and let it go. I know many of you have felt tired and a bit fed up lately, the elementals say good job for pushing through! Take advantage of the energy by checking in and asking if you have any blocks to your willpower that need to be addressed. And ask if there are any steps you need to take to supplement it. In the meantime use the mantra: This is temporary. And focus on what you're learning and how you're growing. Because on this spiritual journey and personal evolution, no matter how light or dark, there is always buried treasure wanting to be found.
