October Create Your Sacred Space Workshops

As someone who has a highly sensitive nervous system, I have spent a lot of time dealing with environments that were uncomfortable for me.  I believed that I had to adapt myself to whatever the energetic space was like and often that wasn’t very easy. Sometimes, my health suffered as a result. I have learned, though, that we are not at the mercy of our environment. We are able to work with energy concepts and different tools to set up our personal energy system and adjust the energy set up in the places we are in to create a more harmonious experience. I am excited to teach these very necessary and important skills in the Create Your Sacred Space Workshops coming up in October!

About the Arizona Workshop 10/21 (1- 4 PM Peoria, AZ)

 The workshop in AZ will also include guidance using Feng Shui concepts from my co-teacher, Barb Hribar (Life Coach, Feng Shui Consultant and Spiritual Teacher).  Otherwise, the workshops in the two states will be the same.  If you are interested in the AZ workshop, please use the contact form below and I will send you the full details.

April New Moon Empowerment Circle Reading

I hope you are all enjoying the spring energies!  I took an impromptu trip to Naples, Florida with my sister’s family for their spring break.  I had a really amazing week with my niece and nephew exploring and enjoying nature!  Here is a photo from our boat trip at Everglades National Park…

January Events and Offerings 2015

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are having a good start to 2015 and staying warm!  I was in Florida for a week with my family and it was tough coming back to cold Ohio.  Here is a photo from the trip just to share a little of the warmth and sea breezes!

Ocean 2015

I have missed those of you I haven’t connected with in awhile!  I tend to communicate a lot more with my Crossroads Coaching Soul Friends Community (which you are all welcome to join!) and end up not posting as much on here.  I am hoping to get back into a routine of writing regularly again though!

Today, I just wanted to share a few opportunities to connect coming up this month.  Here they are!

New Moon Empowerment Circle Reading – Register by Monday 1/19:  This is a pre-recorded reading where each participant gets a personalized intuitive message (though no names are used, I will tell you what number reading you are).   The intention is that all messages have gifts for everyone listening and the whole recording is a cohesive theme.  This month’s New Moon offers a great time to set intentions and make your wishes!  Here is a little about this particular New Moon from Lena Stevens (Power Path):

“This is a time where dreaming big and dreaming “outside the box” is recommended. Higher centered energy is available and you should be greatly inspired with potential. Anything is possible!”

You can sign up here (Love Exchange is $22):  New Moon Empowerment Circle Recording

Winter Forecast Seasonal Reading:  Make the most of the season ahead with this Winter Season Forecast Empowerment Reading!  I’ll be using a Sacred Tree Layout to do your reading.  I’ll be using a variety of oracle cards along with the intuitive insights I receive for you throughout the reading.  There are two options to choose from:  3 Card Spread – $45 or 7 Card Spread – $75.  The reading can be pre-recorded or we can do it on a call together.  Learn more and purchase here:  Winter Forecast Reading

1/31 and 2/1 Great Conjunction Expo and Psychic Fair:  I will be at this event doing Empowerment Crystal Readings and I will have some pre-attuned crystals and my book for sale.  The hours are from 10- 7PM on Saturday and 10-5PM on Sunday.  It is at the Clarion Inn and Conference Center in Hudson, OH.  I attended one of these expos last June and really liked the way it was run and the quality of those offering services. I am excited to have my own table this year!  Visit the website to learn more and to get $1 off admission: Great Conjunction Expo

Finally, here is a little inspiration for today (whatever day you read this) from the Grace Cards by Cheryl Richardson:

“Trust – The more we follow our intuition, the more we’ll find that the right doors open to assist us in fulfilling our life’s purpose.”  

This is very fitting with the January Empowerment Call message.  On that call, I asked for an image for our community for the month of January.  I saw myself swimming in the ocean with waves around me. The sky was gray and there was the remains of my parachute.  I wasn’t hurt, but I also had absolutely no idea where land was.  The message that came through was that this is a good month to trust we are guided/motivated in each moment to do what we need to do, even when we aren’t sure intellectually what that is!  We are moving between one nine year cycle and the next, which can be a bit disorienting.  Put it out to your Angels to motivate and inspire you in each moment and then TRUST!  Your Spirit knows where it is going and you are being protected and cared for during this time of transformation.

Sending much love to you all!

Special Offer and New Product – Empowerment Crystals!

Rose Quartz in Bag 002Can you believe we are almost at the end of 2014?  What a year this has been!  I know I am not the same person who started out the year in January.  So many changes have occurred internally and externally.  The process hasn’t always been easy, but as always, change brings many gifts too.

This fall, I’ve found myself spending a lot of time getting to know my own Team of Angels and Spirit Guides.  With the changes that have occurred, we are rediscovering Guides that have been more in the background until now. These spiritual relationships will grow increasingly important as we move into 2015.  That is why I am offering a new service/product to help provide a bridge to amplify and strengthen these connections.

Empowerment Crystals are exactly what the name describes. They are crystals that empower our connection to our Spiritual Team of Angels and Spirit Guides or to the Earth Energy Centers that are so important in our spiritual growth.  These crystals are programmed to have a sole purpose – to be a bridge connecting you to these powerful resources. As we connect more deeply with the Divine helpers and power centers Mother Earth offers, we gain greater understanding of who we are and why we are here.Empowerment Crystals on an Powerform Activator Disc

For the last month, I’ve been learning about working with crystals from the perspective of subtle energy skills and also creating my own Crystal Team to help me strengthen and clarify my connection with the Divine beings and Earth Centers I rely on.  The process has been fascinating and I am very excited to share the results of it with all of you!

Empowerment Crystals include a 10 minute MP3 recorded meditation introducing you to the Angel, Spirit Guide or Earth Energy Center that the crystal will be programmed to connect you with.  I also am offering phone empowerment crystal readings which will provide more in-depth interaction with these Divine helpers, as well as guidance for your current goals or life path, energy balancing, and practical coaching suggestions.

Summer Earth Wisdom Empowerment Circles at the Blessed Foundation (Medina, Ohio):  Dates:  6/12, 7/24, 8/14 from 6- 7PM (arrival at 5:45 PM so we can start on time):  We had a great time at the first Earth Wisdom Empowerment Circle in May!  For the June Circle we will be on the seventh chakra vortex to deepen our connection with our Spiritual Support Team and hear guidance for the month.  Sign up for the 6/12 Earth Wisdom Circle by WEDNESDAY, 6/11/2014.

During this experience, you will be invited to connect with the Earth energies (we will be sitting in a circle on one chakra vortex or meridian vortex for each meeting) to restore balance to your system and experience intuitive insights and guidance.  As we connect with Mother Earth with love, we will be raising our vibration and lifting the vibration of the planet!  Different tools and techniques as well as intuitive guidance will be shared as part of the experience.  If the weather is inclement, we will move inside to the retreat house and connect to the Earth energies from there.  Cost is $15.    Pre-registration is required.  Visit this link to register:  Empowerment Circles

Crystal Ally Cards

The Crystal Ally Cards by Naisha Ashian provide guidance using crystal energies to empower.  I’ll be using this book this month for the special Pyramid Crystal Ally readings to help give you deeper insight into a concern you are facing.  See below for this month’s special offers.

Wisdom of Avalon Cards

The Wisdom of Avalon Oracle Cards by Colette Baron-Reid

 Here are the cards that fell out for this month:

The Serpent (Knowledge/Healing):  “Card Meaning: The Serpent’s message is one of healing and of gaining knowledge.  Whatever situation you’re in right now is meant for this purpose.  The serpent also reminds you that knowledge is important.  Perhaps it’s time for you to read a book or take  class in order to gain more understanding of your inquiry, or you may need to ask questions of others who “know” and can help you.  Ask the Serpent and you will be guided to the right answer easily and effortlessly.  The Serpent heralds success if you follow his signal.  The Serpent also lets you know that you may be suffering because there are aspects of yourself that are wounded and still need tending.  Now is the time for this.  Perhaps you need to rest, meditate, and allow the knowledge to come to consciousness. Or maybe you just need to sleep more.  Another aspect of Serpent energy is that each time you experience a healing or learn new things, you may need to shed your skin and adopt a new one.  But don’t worry – the Serpent says that it’s a necessary and beautiful thing.” 

The Stag (Pride/Leadership): “When the Stag appears on your path, he tells you to take pride in all that you do.  Be the leader and hold your head high, and others will follow by your example.  Ask yourself these questions:  “Am I following my highest path?”  “Am I acting in integrity and doing the best I can?”  or “Am I held back by the kind of pride that cuts me off from life through arrogance, or in reverse, low self-esteem?”  The Stag asks you to be a leader, be proactive (with the highest intentions), and to always ask, “What is the highest good for all?”  Arrogance and its reverse are both places of alienation and ways to avoid responsibility and accountability.  The Stag leads you out of both difficult places into the kind of pride that reminds you that you’re always in service to the God/Goddess in every step you take.  You may already be there, in which case, you should be proud and happy.  Look how far you’ve come!  Rejoice, for the Stag always leads you to a higher place with a sure and steady footing.”
