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
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...
Yesterday I walked out my front door, and a redtailed hawk flew over me, and landed in a nearby tree. Today as I walked out from an appointment, two crows flew overhead, calling their mournful call.
At one point, I would have delighted to see birds,
but thought no more of it.
But then I started looking into Spirit Animals,
or totems, as they are sometimes called.
And, the idea really spoke to me...
that animals appear as signs
from Mother Nature,
parts of the web of life,
communicating messages of
guidance and wholeness.
Native American tradition has it that all people have one or two or even more, special totem animals, that serve as guides.
This is how I met my primary guide: I had a dream. And in this dream, I was handed my totem animal, which is a snake. It was a very powerful, vivid dream, and I woke up remembering it very clearly...and I walked out to my backyard...and two snakes crossed my path, just in front of me.
It felt very significant.
The first step to meeting your animal guide, is to pay close attention. Is there one animal that you meet over and over, or in unlikely ways? If so...what can this animal teach you?
Observation is a great teacher. Watch and learn. How does your animal interact with the world? What wisdom can it offer you?
Lately I am watching the birds. Birds fly lightly over things that would stop a human. Birds work with the cycles of the days...at dawn they arise, and at sunset, they nest. Birds SING. They are not afraid to use their voice.
We could learn a lot from the birds...
has this happened to you? do you have a specific totem you connect with, or do you notice animals often, and feel you'd like to understand more? please share...i'd love to hear from you. <3
