Last Friday evening, I was exhausted from a busy week of doing, going and moving. Laying flat-out on the couch with one cat on my lap, even turning on the television felt like too much work. The silence was lovely. The not-doing was golden.
In the back of my mind, I recalled that I have an event coming up that requires a new outfit. I unloaded many clothes a few weeks ago, so my closet has felt uninspired and empty lately.
While lying there on the couch semi-dozing, I softly heard a message come through from that wonderful little intuitive voice we all carry. The message was to go to one of my favorite stores and a perfect dress would be there waiting for me. I kept hearing the name “Klein” and that it would be great deal. I considered ignoring this message and continue lying down in silent splendor.
But shopping is an incredible incentive sometimes. Despite my best effort at laziness, I apparently could summon enough energy to wander a store mindlessly. I sat up, removed the cat from my lap and made my way to the car.
Upon arrival, I circled the perimeter of the dress department like a lioness zeroing in on its prey. Nothing jumped out at me. Then I slowly walked amongst the racks and shifted through all hangers in my size. A kinda-cute dress looked like a possibility, but didn’t feel right. I left it hanging and kept searching.
After circling all racks twice, I arrived at the clearance rack. Nestled discreetly in between two other items was a black cap-shoulder dress. I pulled it out eagerly to hang in front of me: Black knee-length dress with a figure-flattering belt. Fully lined. Scoop front neck and cap shoulder sleeves. Timeless style that would be perfect with a plethora of accessories. Calvin Klein. Regularly $180. Marked down to 20 dollars.
I stared at its perfection. Then ran to the dressing room to try it on. Yep – perfect fit. I double-checked the price tag to make sure I saw it correctly and wasn’t delusional: Yep - still only $20 bucks.
I walked around all the racks again and there was no other dress like this in the store. Gripping the hanger against my chest, I took the perfect dress to an open cashier. It really is worth it to get off the couch when you’re tired sometimes.
The perfect Calvin Klein outfit was a great reward after a long week, but I knew this experience wasn’t simply about finding a smashing dress at a great price. Ultimately, the dress was the reward for trusting an intuitive message. We are receiving intuitive messages all the time, but how often do we really listen and trust? How often do we believe what we hear without leaping to doubt, logical explanation or shrugging it off? How often do we act and allow the possibility to unfold like a magical scavenger hunt?
Intuition is alive and active every day, but it takes our human trust and action to make it a reality. I make time to listen to my intuition everyday, as often as possible, especially when I’m waking up from sleep, driving and observing nature. Some of my best inspirations and moments of comfort come at these times. Here are a few essentials I’ve learned along the way:
Intuition speaks to us in whispers. Making time to be quiet and experience silence is crucial.
Intuition is direct and instant. It doesn’t hop-scotch around or weave lazily through other thoughts. Intuition is prompt and to the point.
Your logical mind will probably question it every time. Every time. Accept that as part of the process. Tell your mental capacities to humor you and “let’s just go with this possibility for a bit, shall we?”
Intuition needs to be practiced. It is a muscle that must be built over time through listening, trusting and acting. Start with small daily things. Increase your trust level as it feels comfortable.
Make it a goal to consciously trust your intuition for the next 24 hours.
You may be delightfully surprised by the perfect, beautiful possibilities that are waiting for you!

How much of your energy should you share with others, and how much should you keep for yourself?
What spiritual gifts should be private, and which ones should be public?
And how do you know the difference?
There is not one simple answer, of course, but it is always very wise for your energy to make choices that honor what you need.
In this show, we'll look at how to honor and respect yourself and your spiritual gifts, while sharing and supporting others in ways that feel best for you.
We'll also define what the heck spiritual gifts are, and talk about lesser-known ones because you do not need to be psychic or a channel to have them! Those are such a 1990's description.

Open Up Your Heart by Grietje Haitsma
Receiving is a necessary component to the continual flow of Universal energy.
Receiving balances. It renews. It is the inhale to every exhale. It is a connection to the eternal ebb and flow of blessings that surround us.
Receiving energy is required for your life force to prosper, grow and breathe.
It is your birthright to receive in numerous ways as cycles of energy come to you.
When you are open to receiving, miracles happen. Doors burst open. Gifts arrive with your name on them. People who need your talents find you.
Often times we meet receiving opportunities with our Ego Mind leading the way:
What did I do to deserve this?
Is this a mistake?
Do I need to pay for this?
Ah, no, this would be better suited for someone else.
No, thank you! I'm doing okay as it is.
Yet a Universal truth is that like-energy attracts like-energy. If something has arrived in front of you, it is an opportunity to receive the like-energy that you exhibit in the world. You absolutely deserve it without further questioning, analysis or doubt.
Receive with grace. Be open to all the possibilities of happiness, creativity and abundance you deserve.
Allow it all to come flooding in.
Inhale. Exhale. Allow. Receive. With grace.

We've glided - or stumbled - into the second half of 2016, and we have a significant shift in energy as we move - or dance! - through the remaining months of the year.

I'll be discussing the astrology energies that are different now, and how 2016 is a transition year for many of us.

The beginning of fall brings us eclipse season! Ready or not, powerful energies will be surging through in September to push us forward on our individual and collective paths.
Eclipses are intense connections between the Sun, Moon, and Lunar Nodes that occur only twice a year, so there is an added charge of potentials, change, breakthroughs, and developments in September.
Join me and fellow soul astrologer Dominique Jaramillo as we talk about the Solar Eclipse on September 1 at 9 deg Virgo, and the Lunar Eclipse on September 16 at 24 deg Pisces.
Grab your astrology chart to see where these are showing up for you!
Plus, we have Mercury retrograde in Virgo through most of September as back-to-school and sports activities get underway - keep those to-do lists and calendars in pencil!

As we begin August, all 6 of the outer-most planets are currently retrograde right now: Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and the North Node. What does this mean?
Each of these planets relates to the energies of the collective and the major themes of our times.
When they are in retrograde, we are working with them more in the inner realms and within ourselves individually.
We'll discuss how each of these planets is a teacher that is currently showing us what we are choosing - consciously or unconsciously - and how it contributes to our co-creation of the world right now.

Forgiveness is more than saying/thinking/believing in the words "I forgive you..."
It is the very act of giving away the energy that you no longer wish to connect with in another person, experience, thoughts, or in yourself.
Forgiveness is for giving away all that you choose to be complete with. It is a decision to release what is outgrown, over, and complete - with Love.
This includes parts of yourself.
Oftentimes we can mistake the actions, words and emotions of another as needing forgiveness.
But a greater truth lies in consciously connecting with the part of yourself that energetically connected to that action, word and emotion in the first place.
We are growing, expanding individuals continually given the opportunity to let go and move ahead on our Soul's path. The highest way to do that?
With gratitude for the experience and how we grew,
With joy for the relationship and the gifts it brought us,
With compassion for the feelings and all the "shadow stuff" that may have been dredged up,
With acceptance for ourselves as someone whom is always trying their best.
When you can give away the energy you no longer wish to carry in yourself, you also release those energetic connections with others.
Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself with love, acceptance and compassion.
And it leds to greater inner health as a stepping stone to higher Self-Love.
What can you forgive in yourself today with Love?

One of the big energies we are building up to and feeling strongly this week is Uranus in Aries preparing to go retrograde on Friday. The planet is currently slowing down (yellow light)... to stop at the red light and head in reverse until December. (He is at 24 degrees Aries and will venture back to 20 degrees Aries until December 29, revisiting his path since April 2016.)
Uranus is the planet of disruption, breakthroughs, breakdowns, chaos, lightening strikes, technology, the internet, groups, rebellions, and individuality. He shows us where we are not being ourselves, and where we need to follow the beat of our own drum. We do not want to be told what to do; instead, we want the freedom to follow our own vision and creations. And as we do that, then we connect with a soul tribe that meets us at that same energetic vibration and frequency.
Uranus is also the planet of spiritual awakenings and opening up to higher cosmic wisdom. It rules astrology, metaphysics, and anything that is 'out there' and ahead of mass consciousness. Visionary and cerebral, we are encouraged to think beyond borders and outside of the box - because is there really a box in the first place?
In Aries, Uranus shows up as an assertion of individual identity and honoring who you really are at a soul level. It's where you are crumbling because you can't be 'something else' to others; you can only be yourself and you won't pretend anymore!
In many ways, this planet is showing you a starting point for the next phase of your life because you are coming to understand more of yourself than ever before. Your I AM energy is being activated in a way that you can embrace, own, and integrate into your life.
From now until the end of the year, we'll be looking within for more answers and deeper understandings around our spiritual awakenings process. It is a wonderful time to explore metaphysics, astrology, universal energies, and anything that raises your curiosity because that is Uranus in Aries reminding you of your light and eternal connection to the cosmos.
Onwards we roll!

We can easily feel discouraged or troubled if we look around at what is happening in the world and wonder WTF?!
Politics, violence, shootings, upheaval - is there any chance of this stuff ending or changing?
It can all make our energy sink as we enter the darker caves of negativity, fear, anger, and despair.
In this show, we'll look at how we are made for these times and made for this chaos - do you feel it within yourself?
As a Soul, we each chose to be here at this time in order to maintain the light, vibration, and higher consciousness of understanding about the current cycles of energies.
Let's return to this knowingness and higher perspectives! What if everything is happening right on time?
