Even after all this time,

the Sun never says to the Earth:

“You owe me.”


Look what happens with a love like that:

It lights up the whole Sky.

New To Astrology?

Posted on May 19, 2018 at 1:05 PM

It's tricky to sum up the world of astrology because it's composed of centuries of knowledge and study, and has many divergent studies and philosophies within it, including Western astrology, vedic astrology, horary astrology, and more.


Essentially, astrology is the study of cycles of energies as represented by the planets and zodiac signs. It is a tool for understanding yourself better: your gifts, talents, lessons, challenges, and Self. Astrology reveals energy patterns and tendencies, while also honoring your free will and your ability to choose what you want to do.


In my years of practice and study, I've found this to be a big topic - do we have free will or are we fated for a particular outcome? I don't think that is something anyone else can answer but you. What do you believe for your life? What makes you feel powerful?


Ultimately, all tools have the potential to bring us to higher levels of personal power and self-knowledge. I believe that's why we seek them out in the first place.


Learn more about astrology and energies within you over on my new website, ConsciousIntuitiveAstrology.com. 


Hopefully you discover some new ways to know yourself better.




5 Types of Consciousness On The Planet Now

Posted on May 15, 2018 at 12:50 PM


Consciousness is the understanding that everything around us has meaning associated with it. Everything has consciousness because everything has energy. Becoming more conscious is an opening to greater awareness about the interconnectedness of all things, including all energies beyond the realms of the five senses. Exploring consciousness invites expansion into higher levels of awareness.


From the words we say and the actions we take, to our food, numbers, rocks, animals, geographic locations, and everything else around us (a rather large category), all energies hold consciousness.


Consciousness involves many overlapping factors that contribute to an energetic whole. On an individual level, our emotions, thoughts, vocabulary, and actions all hold a type of consciousness that reflects our personal energy.


On a global scale, humanity is collectively creating a level of consciousness about the human experience, the planet, nature, and our responsibility to the earth. Mass consciousness is a reflection of our collective energy.


There are currently five dominant types of consciousness present today, co-existing, spreading, retracting. I am specifically identifying these as types of consciousness and not levels because levels implies hierarchy or dominance. Using the word type is highly intentional as a way to move beyond the polarities of good and bad; right and wrong; better and worse.


Each type of consciousness offers a different perspective, understanding, and opportunities for growth. Each type has value in providing information and describing experiences. Each type also allows us to choose what perspective is best for our individual, and collective, growth.

Advice for Authors: Bad Reviews and What To Do About Them

Posted on May 14, 2018 at 11:25 AM




One of the hardest aspects of writing a book and putting yourself out there is being on the receiving end of bad reviews. It can rock you or feel like a stab to the heart - but it is part of our world as authors and creators so we have to get stronger with these opinions and the feedback.


Every week, influential indie author Mark Dawson shares excellent advice for authors and writers looking to grow their career.


In this week's Self Publishing Formula podcast, I had the pleasure of speaking with James, Mark's cohost, about 5 types of bad reviews and what to do about them, including:


- Differentiating between a bad opinion and someone who has valuable feedback

- The five different types of negative reviews

- Tips for dealing with each type of review

- Understanding your rights as an author and when to contest a review

- The importance of self-management when dealing with bad reviews

- Relying on the author community and friends we trust for objective opinions

Intuitive Astrology Uranus Enters Taurus

Posted on May 7, 2018 at 8:30 AM

Uranus enters Taurus for the first time in 84 years on May 15 and this energy is working with your current state of consciousness to awaken more of what you value and want in your life. This begins a new Awakening process in your perception of money and your relationship to your self value.

 

Uranus moves to 2 degrees in Taurus, and then goes retrograde back into Aries for 5 months before returning into Taurus again in March 2019:


- May 15th 2018 - November 6th 2018: 0-2 deg Taurus

- November 7th 2018 - March 6 2019: 29-28 degrees Aries

- March 7th 2019 until April 2026: 0-29 degrees Taurus


On a collective level, we change how we use money, banking, financial systems, possessions, agriculture, the land, music, and the earth being a powerful messenger, just to name a few topics.

 

Uranus is sitting at 29 degrees Aries until May 14. The 29 degree of every sign is a closing point that puts pressure to 'finish this up' and 'tie up the loose ends' of that sign's lessons, healing, and intentions. The volcano eruption in Hawaii is certainly connected with this transit, especially the movement between fire and earth.


This transit is going to activate more within yourself around your self-worth, limiting beliefs, second chakra, abundance/willingness to receive, standing your ground, reviewing what you own and collect, and feminine awakening energies.


Let's dive in!

The Biggest Leap

Posted on May 5, 2018 at 11:25 AM

13 years ago today, I boarded a plane to Paris, giant suitcases in tow, ready for a new life-changing adventure.


You know when you're answering a Call of Your Soul because you cannot ignore it, nor deny it, nor delete it.


It is waiting for you to grab it and go for it with gusto - and to trust in bigger ways than you've ever known before. A significant life change will eventually open you up to more of YOU and connect you with deeper levels of authenticity that get to the heart of who you are now.


As you continue to follow that Call of Your Soul, you change and grow and become a newer version of yourself. I look back to that day in May and remember everything that was unknown and exciting; the crazy concoction of "can't wait" and "just a bit scared." I'm super proud of that previous version of myself who had no idea how much she would become along the way.


Becoming your own heroine is an experience of all energies, and the journey shows up for each of us in the most perfect way - when we say YES to that Call of Your Soul.


Cheers to you as you continue to listen to your guidance and trust that whatever calls to you, is perfectly-perfect for you.


And you most certainly have everything you need for the adventure ahead!

A Favorite On Sale For A Limited Time

Posted on April 27, 2018 at 11:30 AM



Every woman is her own heroine. Every female is part of the grand journey of rising consciousness and rising feminine power on the planet.


We are each contributing, offering, sharing, learning, healing, stumbling, figuring it out as valuable Soul pieces of the sum total Soul.


And the best way for each of us to individually contribute is by answering the Call of your Soul. You know what it is at some level of your being. You understand what you need to do or at least you've had glimmers of it. You came here with this knowledge.


Becoming your own Modern Heroine is a journey as unique as you, and also tied to all feminine energies through the cosmic web that unites us in more ways than perhaps our Ego-Minds would like to acknowledge at time.


We are here for each other.

We are here for ourselves.

We are here for God.

We are here for our Soul growth.

We are here.


We support each other as women when we share our stories and put ourselves out there. When we say This Is Me - not, THIS IS ME or this is me - but a powerful, confident:


This Is Me.


The Modern Heroine's Journey of Consciousness opens you up to more of you that has always - always! - been waiting for you.

And that means questions come up along the way...


"What about spiritual growth?


How are we able to expand our personal consciousness in modern times?


How does the archetypal hero’s journey relate to our crazy-hectic-busy lives, contemporary choices, and a quest for personal spiritual growth?


Notably, the journey of spiritual growth is different from the visual, physical, public hero’s journey we typically recognize in movies. Spiritual growth is a personal, internal, sacred, emotional experience often viewed only by invitation. It is different for every person and for each woman, yet there are also common themes and stages that make spiritual growth an archetypal journey.


Who is today’s modern heroine?


I refer to the archetype of a modern heroine as a Trapeze Artist. A Trapeze Artist is a woman who jumps for any number of dreams in her life, from world travel and life adventures, to owning her own business, expressing her creative skills, or completing a marathon. She volunteers in the Peace Corps, or decides to leave a job to raise her children, or goes back to an office after raising children. She has battled through extreme weight loss, or bravely opened up to her true sexuality and owns it. She has served in the military and returned home as a different woman. Or she has entered a national televised singing competition and experienced an extreme life transformation.


There are eleven stages of the journey that pertain to today’s modern heroine and spiritual growth.


Additionally, the journey can be understood through five types of consciousness and two main perspectives, the Elevator and the Spiral."


"The Modern Herione's Journey of Consciousness" is on sale for only 99 cents worldwide for a limited time.

Word-of-Mouth Bestseller, Wow!

Posted on April 23, 2018 at 8:35 AM




Thank you for making "The Truth Always Rises" a #1 book in both Motivational Self-Help and Mental & Spiritual Healing!


It has been in the top spot for a few days now, which is always an honor and never expected. 


This particular book was written with a clear intention to help you embrace how truth grows, shifts, and rises within you. It does not look the same throughout our lives because we do not look the same.


Truth - the big T version - is always tied to your soul's energy and unconditional love. We have experiences in life that takes us away from this knowingness because our lives are filled with tests, lessons, and challenges that present us with opportunities to choose. Choice is one way that we demonstrate our truth throughout life. Listening to your inner voice and trusting your heart will always amplify your messages of truth.


On a personal note, it is always a bit of a struggle to open up with my own vulnerabilities, pain, and heartache, but that is also how we relate deeper to each other. We all experience hard times and tough lessons, but we all gather more strength and personal power on the other side of those periods, too. 


May these messages connect with you and hopefully be exactly what you need right now.
