Do you sometimes wish you could get clear, loving guidance from your intuition? Keep reading to learn one brilliant method for doing this!
I have always loved to write, but a few years ago I found myself disconnected from it. It felt like the well had run dry. Then I fell into a class that changed all that.
What was this class, you ask? A very unusual one, called Divine Dialogue Writing, taught by a special lady named Lore Raymond. Lore is a loving soul and truly devoted to helping her students learn to write in new ways.
This class taught us how to free our minds and relax, and allow our natural connection to Spirit to flow. Depending on how much of a believer in incorporeal beings a writer is, they could interpret it as either messages from their inner knowing, or from their angels.
Personally, I don't find a huge difference between the two; both provide loving, encouraging messages to aid in spiritual growth.
Yes, yes, you might be thinking, that's all very well, but what is the secret to tap into my intuition? I'll tell you.
It's a magic phrase.
But first, we need to set the stage. Intention is key here, so it's vital to set a beautiful scene.
Get a lovely new notebook. This is going to be your sacred notebook, so make sure it's pretty, and start keeping it in a special place--on your altar if you have one, or in a lovely piece of cloth somewhere safe and secret.
Find a space where you will be undisturbed for a while. Set the mood; maybe spread out a cloth on your work surface, put out some sacred crystals and items, light a candle, and play some gorgeous soothing music.
Now you are ready to connect! Close your eyes, and say a prayer of intent--whatever feels good to you.
Possible ones include:
This is going to be your sacred notebook, so make sure it's pretty. Isn't mine gorgeous?
Here comes the magic phrase.
Are you ready? You'll want to write this down, because this mojo totally works!
And the best part is how simple it is.
"What do I need to know, for my greatest and highest good today?" That's it! That's really it!
And the short form: WDINTKFMGAHGT?
This phrase will get you super connected. It's like magic! It might not sound too dramatic, but I promise, once you set the stage and pose the question, the words just start to flow.
And you can make it specific, too, just add "about____" and fill in the blank with whatever you want to know about.
Once you have the phrase written down and you've honed in on if you have an exact topic you want to write about, or if you just want to leave it open ended, write.
Let the words flow out of you and onto the paper until it feels complete. Even if it feels like a jerky start, just start writing.
Don't think about it too much--whatever comes out will be exactly what you need to hear.
Don't edit as you go.
If the inner critical voice starts to come up, lovingly but firmly tell it to shove off. This is your sacred time, and you are communing with your intuition and your angels.
You got this!
After you finish, thank your angels, or the universe, or whoever the heck you wanna thank. The point is to feel some gratitude, whatever flavor you like.
Voila! You just tapped into your intution, and likely wrote something really profound, really insightful, and full of power and truth!
I find this technique so incredibly helpful, especially when I'm feeling down or upset, and just can't seem to access my intuition in any of the normal ways.
This technique ALWAYS works for me.
Please give this amazingly simple, super powerful method a try, and let me know in the comments how it works for you!
I bet you will come up with some really deep wisdom. I know I have!
Until next time,
so much love, xoxo,

This card literally fell out of Doreen Virtue's gorgeous Archangel Deck...
What if you could talk to angels? What if they could bring you messages to uplift and inspire you?
Angels or spirit guides or high self or intuition or inner guidance system. If you aren't a little bit woo-woo you won't know what I'm talking about;
but heck, if you aren't a little bit woo-woo, you probably wouldn't even be here...
I work as a channel, which means I have studied and practiced ways to open my intuition, and communicate with what I see as spiritual beings, guides on the path.
You could think of them as parts of the collective consciousness if that makes you feel better. It sounds more science-y and less woo.
Me, I go all-in on the woo.
I have a secret; I can talk to angels. Now it's not a secret anymore.
I have another secret.
You can talk to angels. Yes, you.
Anyone can. Intuition is part of our natural inheritance as spiritual beings. And I can teach you exactly how you might clearly and accurately hear what they want to say TO YOU.
WHY would I want to talk to angels?
Why would you want to know this? Oh, believe me, angels have important messages. They can offer support, encouragement, and guidance to your life.
Most importantly, they are always loving. It's like having a built-in support team; always cheering for you to succeed.
So what is the number one message angels wish us to hear? Keep reading to find out...I'll get to it as soon as I've explained a bit more about the "how" to talk to angels.

How is connecting with angels done?
There are lots of methods for connecting with angels, including working with angel cards, learning to read signs and omens, and learning channeled speech or writing.
One of my spirit heroes, the lovely and inimitable Doreen Virtue, has a wonderful channel on Youtube where she shares her weekly angel card reading. This lady is THE expert on angels, and you can learn all about them from her books.
Next week I'm going to share a very special technique that can instantly connect you to your spiritual GPS.
But for this week, I'm going to share a message my angels gave to me.
What do angels most want us to know?
This is literally the most repeated phrase I hear my angels tell me when I check in for guidance.
They say it over and over, so I know it must be important.
They say it when I am freaking the hell out over something, and things feel really hectic.
They say it when it's late at night, and dark, and I'm worried there might be an axe-murderer in the closet.
They say it when I'm feeling blue and lonely, and wondering if I will ever meet Mr. Right.
They say it when I'm on the verge of panic because nothing seems to be going right.
You know what they say in all these situations?
"Relax, dear one, all is well."
That's it, just, "relax, dear one, all is well."
Sometimes I want to disagree with them, no, clearly things are not well right now, but there is just something so comforting about the way the message comes.
It calms me down; there is a palpable energy with it, of things-being-ok. I can sense it. Even if on the surface things seem wrong, there is a deeper agency at work here.
All really IS well; as the poet said, "whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should."
The simple fact of connecting with my higher guidance system, my angels, my intuition--the very act of connecting with something larger than myself is in itself an act of reassurance.
When I connect, I am reminded that on some level, all is well, and I can let go of worry and fear.
When I sat down to have a conversation with my angels about fear, they had more pearls of wisdom to share. Here's what they told me.
"Relax dear one, all is well. (See? They ALWAYS drop that truth bomb.)
All is always well. (And they bring it up a notch.)
Even when fear arises. Fear is small.
Love is vast. YOU are vast.
Fear cannot overtake something so vast as you are, just as a single cloud cannot overtake the sky. (Love that--it's so poetic!)
Let go of the fear, of the belief that it can harm you, take you, make you something other than love.
That is never possible.
You are love, you can only be love. Anything else is illusion, deception, hiding from the Self.
"Your essential nature is peace."
The message carries a high vibration of love to uplift.
Yes!!! I don't know about you, but I find something so uplifting in the angel messages, I can literally feel my heart lifting and my vibration raising.
This is powerful stuff! I hope this article brought you some inspiration and uplifted you! Let me know in the comments what you think about angels--do you believe they are real? Have you gotten feelings or signs that they are trying to communicate with you?
Please check back next week to learn a powerful technique where you can connect to angels yourself to channel a loving angel message!
until then, So much love, xoxo
You are already perfect, just as you are.
Every hair, every freckle, every wrinkle and stretch mark of your body. Perfect.
Every thought and every fear, every joy and every doubt. Perfect.
Every belief you hold dear, every thing you hold close in your heart, and never wish to release. Perfect.
Every part of you, and every one you have ever been, or will be yet. Perfect.
What does this mysterious perfection mean, that is not subject to outer or inner conditions?
It means that you are a part of this great universe, an unbroken, perfect microcosm of all-loving creation.
It means that you need never doubt yourself, or your innate goodness and wisdom.
you are one with everything, and all things are within you, and connected with you.
past the differentiation of forms, there is the perfection, and this is you. It’s who you really are, much deeper than any of the changeable outer phenomena you identify as “you”.
you are already perfect, just as you are.
This is what the wisdom traditions all point at: Jesus talks about Heaven on Earth, Buddha about the unbounded heart. This is our basic reality, on the truest level...
The earth is changing. Can you feel it?
If you are one of the sensitives, then you have probably started noticing a number of signs heralding the changes, perhaps starting in 2012.
Since then, it feels like so much has shifted, energetically, and it is still shifting dramatically. The earth is ascending to a new vibration, and you are a part of that.
If you are reading these words, you are probably one of the evolving humans, ready to accept that many things beyond our comprehension are nevertheless true.
Here are Eight Signs you may have noticed.
Feeling that time is not moving in a straight line anymore. Is it cycling and jerking? Are things happening backwards sometimes? Maybe you are not as sure as you once were, that things move in a linear fashion. In this vibration, much like a quantum field, everything is actually happening all at once, so the normal rules of time are evolving. If you pay close attention, at first you may think time is circling around and that you have been here before. But at a closer look you realize that you are somewhere both new and yet familiar. It's the same point on the circle but you've spiraled further on. Because we live in cycles and seasons yet we also evolve in a forward cumulative direction.
Seeing colors. Are you imagining things, or can you actually see your friend's aura? When you close your eyes, do certain colors pop out? Maybe you have been seeing a lot of purple and green. I think of purple as the spiritual flame. and green is the color of the earth energy. So we have the alchemy of heaven and earth, because the earth is ascending in vibration, grounding the high frequencies.
Seeing vibrations. When you stare at an object, and you get the strange feeling it is moving before your eyes, like you can actually see the molecules dancing. The earth is shifting to a higher frequency. Maybe these are energy bubbles, as the energy above and below tries to balance out.
Synchronicity. This is a big one! Someone mentions your favorite band is playing in town. Then their song comes on the radio. The lyrics seem meaningful. Spirit guides are constantly guiding us, sending us messages and inspiration. As the earth increases in frequency, it becomes much easier to see the messages they send, which so often take the form of synchronicity.
Intense dreams. Have your dreams lately been vivid, lucid, or just plain whacked out? Again, as the earth changes, you are changing too. And your subconscious mind is wired in to the earth grid very directly, so it can be a source of many important understandings about what, exactly, is going on here.
Increased psychic abilities. Yup! This is a fun one. As the earth's vibration becomes less dense, sensitivities and psychic abilities are going up a level. If you are already intuitive, you may notice this becoming a superpower! You can almost hear what people are thinking...
Feeling an urgency about your purpose. If you are a lightworker, starseed, witch, new human, or evolved being, you may sense that there is an urgent reason for you to be incarnated on this planet at this time. You know deep down you are here to help with the ascension process! This is a critical time for the planet, and for humanity. With your help, we can tip the balance towards love, for the whole planet.
Shedding density. A huge part of the ascension process is releasing all our baggage. This means... it gets triggered as these shifts happen. Old stuff comes up. Emotional pain and limited beliefs are poked at...brought into the light...and now you have a choice. Release...shed this heavy energy and open to the new frequencies. Or...stay with it. Hold on...and stay stuck in the mud and muck. The choice is yours. Only you can free yourself from mental slavery, as Bob Marley famously sang. What this means for the earth as a whole is our collective issues are coming to the forefront. If you follow the news, this might seem like the end of the world...and it is. It's the end of the old world, and the start of a brand new one. Let's make it a beautiful one.
I want to start with a story. Backtrack about ten years ago. I had just graduated college, I was hopelessly in love with my then-boyfriend of seven years, and all I knew for certain was that I had always dreamed of living abroad. I was at a crossroads in my life, although I didn't know it at the time. What to do? Follow my dreams, or stay with my heart, with the man I always believed I would marry?
I remember feeling like it was impossible to make such a choice. I told myself that I probably wouldn't get the teaching fellowship I applied for, to work in France. Then I got the offer...to live in the sunny south of France, with an ample stipend to live and travel on. I still didn't know. Could I do it? Could I just...leave this man I loved behind? In the airport, as I said goodbye to him, I couldn't stop crying. I told him, that if we were truly meant to be together, then a year apart wouldn't matter. We could make it work long distance. He told me not to go. He said he would never forgive me.
Looking back now, I see what that year in France was. It was my freedom. It was my independence. It was me, going my own way, listening to the dreams of my own soul. My ex boyfriend didn't support that dream at all. There's much more to the story to us, but for now I'll just say, that I am eternally grateful that it wasn't meant to be, that he and I would be married as I once dreamed.
My sister is on the road right now. She is on this incredible free spirited adventure in New Zealand. She takes the most incredible photographs, like this waterfall in Milford Sound, NZ. She had wanted to do this forever, this backpack hippie life. She told me she was always envious of my travels. But something always stopped her...until last winter, when she got pneumonia. After a frightening hospitalization, when she came perilously close to the edge of death, she recovered, quit her job, and left home.
She's been flying her wings ever since, 8 months later, and I could not be more proud of her. She's inspiring me...reminding me...to follow those dreams.
So this is what I say to you, who harbors secret dreams of being a gypsy in her hidden soul...to you, who has always wanted to dance barefoot on the grass, with flowers in her hair...to you, who desperately dreams of finding that true love, and settling down and raising babies with them...YES. I say Yes. You can do this. You must do this, for the sake of your own happiness. Let go of your fears, and open up to your dreams.
This is your one wild and precious life, as Mary Oliver calls it...so go forth and live your dreams. No one else will live them for you. This is up to you. Not making a choice is still a choice. Only you know the way that's right for you, so never let anyone else's ideas of what is right for you limit your life. You are limitless, so keep reaching for those dreams.
So much love,
There will be signs, guiding you on the way. The journey will be individual,
and you will need to trust your instincts,
and rely on your own inner knowing.
But I can draw you a rough map, and you can orient yourself in a certain direction...
First place to start: Start where you are.
To meet an animal, you will need to put yourself out in nature. But, most likely you already spend at least some time each day outdoors. Is it the park, your backyard, or even a city sidewalk?
There are animals everywhere...and birds and insects also serve as Spirit Animals. The trick is simply to pay attention to what you see.
Perhaps, three days in a row, you will see a blue jay as you take your morning walk. Maybe, as you start to watch for them, you notice cats everywhere. Not even in nature...you start seeing pictures, images of them, mentions in conversation.
And...you get a feeling when you see this animal. A feeling of connection, recognition, even. Could they be the one? Could this be your spirit animal?
Now is the time to dig deeper. Research IS your friend. Google loves you. Look up your animal...learn more about their habits, their gifts, what they can teach you. Animals Speak by Ted Andrews is an excellent book about the meanings of Spirit Animals.
There is a second place to begin.
Second place to start: Journey within...
A Spirit Animal has a shape in this material realm we seem to be in much of the time...but it also has a Spirit form, on the other side of things. Behind what is obvious, there are the subtler currents of Being...and this is something you can and do explore already, in your night dreams. Daydreams are an excellent route to connect with your Spirit Animals.
Set the intention to meet your Spirit Animal, find a comfortable place and let your mind relax. Create an imaginary scene, and enter into it....use all of your senses, to hear, see, smell, feel the world around you...walk deeper in, and find your Spirit Animal.
So You Want to Meet Your Spirit Animal...
