We have multiple energies to play with thoughout our lives that support our ongoing growth. We are gifted with understanding them at higher levels of consciousness, especially the fact that love and abundance are always present within us - but we have to connect with them fully.
Listen in as Lavandar, Arielle, and I converse about my book The Unlimited Sparks of a Bonfire and how it supports our spiritual growth now on Starseed Radio Academy.
In this radio show, we discuss soul imprints, karmic healing, spiritual understanding, and more, as well as the writing process of this book.

A Slow Blink of New Consciousness
The Sun is the light, energy and pulse of our planet, providing us with warmth, vitality, and LIFE that structures our daily world and patterns. In astrology, the Sun is Masculine, fire, self-identity, creation, movement, public, outer world, ego and life growth. The Sun is your sense of Self and where we are each developing more of our I AM identity in this lifetime in order to contribute to the collective.
Conversely, the Moon is Feminine, private, internal, and emotional. She rises every evening to balance our energy fields and bring us inward to ourselves. The Moon reveals what is happening within us and to connect us with what is hidden within our own subconscious so we can know our hearts and needs more fully. The Moon is nurturing, open, inviting, and wise.
As the Moon makes its way across the Sun for the Total Solar Eclipse at 29 degrees Leo, the Masculine is hidden by the Feminine. The Moon darkens the light so we can sit in a place of deeper wisdom and reveal what we need to feel right now.
Solar Eclipses happen twice a year all over the world, so they are not unique in occurrence, yet this one is extra potent in how the United States is being invited into the depths of its self and to collectively ask:
Who are we in the dark?
What are our shadows that we need to see and heal in order to begin anew?
The Solar Eclipse is offering us an opportunity to investigate:
When the light is removed, and all is As It Is, what does my heart say?
What does my heart feel?
What - and who - is in my heart?
The focus is of this event has been on the Sun - Look at me! Look at how I shine! - yet the true spectacle of the event is the Moon as she slowly makes her way across the brightest light in the solar system. Underneath how you "show up" in the word, the truth of your intentions or what you need may be hidden. But how do you feel and are you willing to own those sacred parts of yourself more.
This is a New Moon in Leo at 28/29 degrees that is inviting you to go deeper into your heart's shadows and the needs you have hidden from yourself. Did parts of you get buried under shame, guilt, betrayal, heartbreak, and heartache? Have you allowed those experiences to over-shadow who you are now and what you need now? Are you ready to rise up from those experiences with greater power and strength?
A mystical, cosmic event such as this can reset our individual pulse's with the pulse of the Universe and activate deeper consciousness. As the skies get darker and the temperature drops, we see further into the galaxy and millions of stars will be revealed. We will see how our tiny place in the cosmos matters and yet what are we actively doing to create the life, planet, and experiences that we want?
The Sun is being eclipsed by the Moon over the United States as a new beginning point of creation and risk-taking. The last time this occurred was in 1776 - the date of the U.S. Constitution. So if you were looking for any kind of significance to this event, there ya go.
I feel this New Moon Solar Eclipse to be a slow blink of new consciousness where we take 2 full minutes to tune out the ego and tune in to the heart on a deeper level.
Only you can do that for yourself, but collectively, we are each fortified with new levels of confidence, courage, and connection to your heart's needs. This is not mental; you cannot think your way through it.
You are being invited to look at what you are holding within your heart space, and to receive new light around it when the Sun begins to shine again.

When the Full Moon rises to its peak level of light, we receive a full blast of energy from the cosmos to show us what we need to know, see, and feel right now. The Lunar Eclipse on August 7th is a Full Moon at 15 degrees Aquarius, and it's illuminating 'the vision ahead' and the way forward that advances your soul growth BEYOND what your ego self can embrace.
That means you are being guided to keep moving forward and not feel held back by too much pride, or insecurity, or concern with what 'everyone thinks.' Chances are, they are too concerned with their own matters to put a lot of thought towards your life direction.
So what would you choose if no one else's opinion mattered and the decision set you free? What feels good to you because it honors your path and dreams in a way that give back to the collective?
This Lunar Eclipse amplifies where we give our feelings away to other people and/or how we hold ourselves back because we don't want to separate from others. A part of you wants to feel connected to a bigger group or ideal, but you're being reminded that it is already true simply as a member of the human family.
Both the Sun and Mars in Leo oppose this Lunar Eclipse, which creates a push-and-pull between what you want to receive and what you want to give...between what your heart feels and what your ego believes it needs to get ahead. There is aggression and contention, but Saturn in Sag at 21 degrees helps get to the truth of the matter with maturity. Allow others to own their talents knowing it doesn't impede on your ability to shine and share.
Jupiter in Libra makes a supportive sextile to the Sun and trines the Moon, providing optimism, faith, confidence, and belief in the right people supporting us now.
We also have a Mystic Rectangle in the Lunar Eclipse chart between Pluto, Neptune, Mercury, and Venus. These 4 planets are talking intimately and asking you to assess relationships that support your spiritual growth (Venus trine Neptune) and authentic, honest conversations that allow you to heal a core issue more fully (Mercury trine Pluto). A Mystic Rectangle requires checking in on your yin and yang energy and is meant to help us see new revelations around deeper issues we've been carrying. You may have a new understanding that breaks you free from a struggle.
You are ready to revolutionize your energy field with greater LIGHT and advancement now - and it's been building for most of 2017. Be at peace with who you are and balance that with a willingness to be expansive in your life possibilities.
August is a month of forward movement and change, so say yes to the next step, new adventure, and all progress forward because it IS time and you are ready. Let's do this!

Heart Consciousness is the energy of feeling connected to each other as we share our human experiences. It can take natural disasters, global crisis, or local emergencies to remember this truth - but it doesn't have to. The ability to give back in some capactiy - whether to our local communities or to the world - is an integral part of spiritual growth.
In this show, we'll explore how you can consciously give your energy, resources, or time in a meaningful way that will bring you to deeper places of peace, compassion, and connection.
Learn more about Heart Consciousness, and the other 4 types of Consciousness on the planet now, right here on the website.

I can still vividly remember how incredibly relaxed this guided meditation by Deepak Chopra made me feel.
It was 2005.
I was lying on a couch in Paris, completely wiped out.
My friend Trisha and I had been exploring the city, and we returned to her apartment in the 6th arrondissement to take a much needed break. We devoured baguette sandwiches, and couldn't muster the energy to do anything else for the afternoon - couch collapse!
Except my mind was still racing with way too many ideas and thoughts - know that feeling? Your body is telling you to relax, but you can't turn off your dang monkey mind.
My first generation iPod mini was stocked with only one guided meditation. There weren't a lot of options available in 2005, after all. I shuffled through a few songs and finally landed on this album choice. The easy words, soft chanting and soothing music felt like heaven as my mind finally slowed down and I drifted off into an awesome trance. That 20-minute nap felt like hours of sleep.
The best thing about guided meditations is that they work WITH your mind's activity at the beginning. You do not have to fight your thoughts, or struggle with all of the mental chatter, or try to force something to happen.
You simply listen.
Quality guided meditations work with your body's rhythm to calm down your energy, relax the mind, and take you deeper into your brain's delta and theta waves.
I wanted to share this with you because as we enter April, the energies get a bit WONKY. Yes, that is my official description for the month.
Now is a wonderful time to continue calming your mind and spirit whenever you feel off-balance or overwhelmed. You'll need supportive resources this month. Even if you've never tried meditation before, or you have and it didn't 'work' because you kept thinking (which is normal!), please give it another go. Obviously I strongly recommend these selections, especially starting at track 3.
I share with you why April is WONKY in this week's astrology and energy update right here.

Being truly authentic in all areas of your life may feel like a big risk initially. Will people like you? Hear you? See you?
As we move through the global shift in consciousness, more of us cannot hide who we are, what we love, and our plentitude of gifts anymore - and why should we!
The world needs your authenticity and light more than ever, and this show discusses the healthy (and not so healthy) ways to share your authentic energy.

We're moving through a powerful month of changes and growth, so this week we're going to also do a healing meditation to work with the energies of February.
We're in the middle of eclipses - an eclipse sandwich!
Not a lot is settled or stable at this time.
Our next eclipse is February 26 at 8 degrees Pisces, when both the Sun and Moon are in Pisces, along with a number of other planets in the last sign of the zodiac.

The sun (sol) hits a stoppage point (stitium) - "solstice" - twice a year as it reaches the furthest points north or south of the equator. We know the bi-annual solstice days as the periods when seasons change and our days increase, or diminish, in light, depending on your hemisphere.
The winter solstice begins the change from dark back to light over the next 6 months. There is an invitation to integrate what you've learned since the summer solstice in June, and apply it to your next round of growth. The real force within you awakens at this time as you are wiser and stronger than before. The young Jedi is now an expert and a guide. The saga of soul growth continues on a new adventure with new peeps, new lessons, and crazy-wild terrain to explore. What was hidden within you now has the potential to be activated in the light.
As the winter solstice approaches on Dec 21 (summer solstice in the southern hemi), we are urged to turn our attention away from the outer world of hustle and bustle, and remember that we need periods of rest and reflection, including Netflix-binging on the couch.
Time to put away the credit cards, set down the mobile devices, and remember that we are bigger than this moment of busy-ness.
(Exception: This advice does not apply to husbands, boyfriends, or partners who still need to get their Christmas shopping done. }
Astrologically, the Sun moves from extrovert, popular, entertaining Sagittarius to pensive, serious, committed Capricorn on the solstice. We shift from the FUN to the MEANING of this time of year. Notice how the energy changes from feeling OMG-crazy to let's-get-serious about what matters and how much we need to spend? That's a gift of the solstice.
We also turn our attention to how far we have come in only 12 months and reflect back on what we've experienced and achieved.
How would you sum up 2016 for yourself?
The solstice invites contemplation and peace. You've done enough. You've done your best. You did all you could. You were perfect and wonderful and lovely, even when it was messy and scary and hard. You only have control over so much, so let yourself off the hook for the rest. Give yourself peace in the stillness. Find the lesson, the growth, the bigger picture - and breathe.
Recommendation: Peace is best served with chocolate and red wine.
Thankfully, that Saturn is in Sagittarius, so we really, truly have support to build a foundation for our next vision. What do you want to create in 2017 that supports your belief in yourself and your next round of dreams? That's a big question, and it will take work, but continue to believe in yourself. Be ready to get to work and follow your inspirations for the next call of your soul - the cosmos says it's time!
Other things to consider:
~ Stay flexible. More than ever, we have to be able to go with the flow and allow change to occur that is ultimately in the best interest for All. It will continue to look different, so don't get locked in to one expectation or a particular outcome.
~ Do it your way. Not what other people expect, or based on any limitations you've put on yourself previously, or what others are doing.
~ Be willing to be a NEW version of yourself. No need to hold on to what has expired or what no longer represents who you are because that may be just a bit too small now. Honor your own growth and changes - all of it.
~ The past 3 years have been tough on many levels. Now that time is over and it's time to move forward. Don't replay or rehash what's done and complete, silly!
~ Apply what you've learned. We were meant to be pushed and challenged over the past 3 years in order to now apply our knowledge and use it. You'll want to make new choices - so allow yourself to do that.
*The energy of 2017 is very different than the past 3 years have been! You'll feel it, too.*
Cheers and holiday spirits to you!

Are you wondering WHAT IS GOING ON with global energies right now?
It is actually an amazing time for us as a human family, and on some level you know that and feel that. We are here for these times of dynamic change and transformation, no matter how it shows up, because our intention is ultimately for ALL to be experiencing greater happiness, peace, and abundance in their lives.
In this show, we’ll talk about the energies, lessons, and growth that are available to us after the U.S. elections stirred up a global jolt.
It is all a part of an acceleration of energies to support our path forward.
All is Well. All is in Order. All is Safe Within You.

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." (MLK, Jr) ~
I woke up with much to say and share about this election result, so I took to the microphone this morning with the intention of offering you comfort, perspective, and inspiration.
To sum it up: We are individually and collectively bigger than politics, than a world leader, than this temporary situation. The good news? **Our work for humanity has been identified.** We can see more clearly where greater LIGHT is needed. It is now up to each of us to decide how we will move forward with greater light, love, and awareness about the state of the United States and our contributions to humanity.
As many of you know, moving through a transformation process has the phases that are HARD before it gets easier. We're dealing with an outdated political system and watching it break down. From the breakdown, we will re-emerge with greater light and love for all. That takes time, and it is what we do with that time now that matters most.
Many more thoughts to share and inspire you with in this 30 minute podcast... In case it helps ~
Reality checks for where we are collectively can be tough, and many are in shock, despair, fear, and turmoil over Donald Trump's Presidency-elect win.
However you are feeling about this development, American or not, anti-Trump or not, this development has completely shaken the energy of the whole planet - emotionally, financially, politically, socially, psychologically.
Let's look at what this unexpected development means for humanity.
I have some higher-perspective messages to share with you about this election that I've been holding back until the results came in. I hope it helps shed light on this event. I hope it gives you a way to navigate where we are together on this planet.
Please listen with an open heart, an open mind, and a belief in what is POSSIBLE as we ride these waves of uncertainty.
At higher levels, all is well.
Maintain your focus and energy for the highest and best good for everyone involved, in any and all forms, knowing that everything brings us opportunities.

This is a shout out to share how super grateful I am for the wonderful people I have connected with to produce and narrate audio books for 5 of my 10 books.
In the past 6 months, we have released 10 titles (6 are single short stories with spiritual teachings) and there is no way I could have done any of it on my own at this point (moving across the country, baby, work projects, etc). Each narrator and producer is wonderful at their jobs. We have at least one more audio book in the works right now. And it feels GOOD to have this goal off of my never-ending To Do List because as any author/enterpreneur can tell you... the overwhelm is real!
For the other authors out there, I really do endorse ACX and their system for creating audio books. It's been fantastic for auditions, contracts, payment terms, distribution to Amazon, Audible & iTunes, and everything else. Plus, you connect with a whole new group of people who love to listen to stories.
My newest title, YOUR AWAKENING SELF: CONNECT DEEPLY WITH YOUR TRUE EVOLVING SOUL, was completed and released about a week ago. You can check it out here - and learn how to get it for free from Audible!
It's an exciting time to be an indie author! I have NO REGRETS about doing it all myself... it's been a steep learning curve at times, but completely worth it. Every dream is!
