“It doesn’t matter what people tell you. It doesn’t matter what they might say. Sometimes you have to leave home. Sometimes, running away means you’re headed in the exact right direction.” ― Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic We live in a … Continue reading
When you put your focus on things that you cannot control, you begin to deplete your energy. This creates a cycle of pulling toward you, and manifesting exactly what you DON’T want! Your thoughts are a powerful magnet, pulling into your life whatever you choose to focus on!
Take note throughout your day of the quality of your thoughts. Track where your mind goes. What are you focusing on? What are you giving your energy to? What mental dialogue are you having with yourself? Write down your thoughts, evaluate them, and ask yourself if they are in alignment with the things you wish to manifest!
How often do you have an opposing thought toward exactly what you are WANTING in your life?
Begin with this list and start to become more mindful of the things that you tell yourself and put your mental energy into. Train yourself to think more positive and affirming thoughts. Whenever you have a negative thought, catch it, imagine a big red line crossing it out, and replace it with a positive thought.

Stop telling yourself that there is no time for dreaming. I want you to remember that there is always something beautiful to be found, no matter how dark and dismal things may seem. You have to know that dreams can come alive in the dark.
If you have been working toward a goal or dreaming up some huge, crazy thing, then get ready because dreams are about to come true. It is your right to have everything you want. All the things that build you up, that make you feel whole, spiritual and vibrant are meant to be yours.
Do not deny yourself of your dreams!
Happiness is not somewhere in the distance. Respect your path and your spirit, and honor the wisdom that lives inside of you. When you embrace the inner callings of your soul, you open a treasure trove of possibilities.
What has been on your mind will now come into you life… so stop the worries! What you give your energy to is a request to the Universe to bring that vibration into your life. So bring only goodness in.
Begin to rejoice in the present moment as possibilities are in the process of becoming reality. Keep calling to your dreams and they will float softly to you. Now is the time and you have all the magic in the universe at your fingertips.
Affirm: “I can dream my biggest dreams, and I have the right to attain everyone of them. Each day I wake, a new dream is made reality…. And I am grateful for it!”
All the best,
Do you wonder why you can’t get someone off your mind? Are you frustrated with your dreams? Do things seem to be going all wrong? Are you chronically dealing with an unresolved issue?
I have some secrets to share…
First, you need to understand energy. You need to understand how to use energy. Energy is currency. You give your energy to specific people, places, things, ideas, feelings, beliefs, fears, etc. You invest your energy the way you invest money.
When you make an energetic investment you have to ask yourself, “Is this going to pay off?” Because if it’s not then you’ve wasted vital energy. You want your energetic investments to feed your energy, to help it multiply! If your investments multiply, then you can invest in new things.
You make an energetic investment every time you take something to be true. You make an energetic investment every time you make yourself responsible for something. You make an energetic investment every time you dwell on something. You make an energetic investment every time you are afraid of something. And on and on it goes.
If you aren’t aware of your energetic investments, then you quickly have nothing! You feel stifled. You feel impoverished. You feel angry. You feel lethargic. You will as though nothing you want in life ever happens!
When you make an energetic investment, you make a commitment to give your energy to something. Will it pay off?
Energetic investments don’t stop at the initial transaction they are a continuous commitment. When you commit to someone in a relationship, you energetically invest in them… you establish a cord between your heart and theirs. You’ve given them a direct pipeline to your essence.
Ah! Now you see why negative relationships will age you, take your health, and make your whole world go dark. When you are in a negative relationship the other person is siphoning your life force away… leaving you with nothing! Pretty soon you will be hungry, without the strength to find sustenance.
Feed your energy! Don’t deplete your energy.
You want to be picky about who you attach yourself to. You want to be picky about the thoughts you choose to think. You want to be picky about the story you tell yourself. You want to be picky about the fears you entertain.
You’ve been given a certain amount of energetic currency. Use it wisely. It’s like mom and dad gave you your weekly allowance… you don’t want to spend it all in one place! Be conscious of what you invest in, be conscious of what you are manifesting.
If you are feeling stuck ask yourself why. Are you investing in something depleting? Do you need to unplug from something? Are you being careless with your energy? Are you entertaining worn-out thoughts and ideas?
Why are you starving for energy?
Invest your energetic currency in things that multiply and feed you.
Sit down today and look at what you’ve invested in. Before you can make your dreams happen you have to unplug from all the dead ends and dead beats…then plug into the good stuff!
Practice spiritual cleansing to release these negative energies. Be conscious of your thinking.
Figure out what story is playing in your head, heart and spirit.

Spiritually cleanse yourself, and nourish your spirit by consulting a Reiki practitioner. Have a reading to pinpoint the blocked areas. Keep a running journal of your life to look back on! It’s all about being aware of yourself.

There is something calming about falling into the night, just letting go and allowing the hushed and gentle spirit of the Moon to speak to you. I find myself coming alive in the dark. I lay down to go to bed after a long, hard day and something in me is awakened by the subtle calm that permeates the air. I want to write, I want to sing, I want to tell my secrets to the angels.
I feel that I’ve crossed over into another world as the night comes on. Everything looks different, one thing transforms into another. We all become shape shifters in the dark. We unwind and let go; we shed the layers of the day. Like a weight has been lifted and we become light again. Its at night, in the dark that we can become the darkness unafraid.
There is nothing to fear in the dark because if you close your eyes everything becomes nothing and nothing is all the same. Its a powerful form of alchemy where you can experience what is unable to be seen in the light of day. Its not that everything in the night is taboo in the day, its just easier at night because there are no expectations. You have no guilt when you are falling into the darkness because thats whats expected; whether you are sleeping, dreaming or going wild.
I ask you to find what sets you free. In the still of the night find something that inspires you. My muse comes alive in the night. She takes my hand and ask me to dance with her. Thats when I write my deepest poems and draw out my most intimate dreams. The night time is powerful because its very intimate. The night time is like a silk velvet robe of the darkest ebony, slipping around your body gently touching you, keeping you safe. So let yourself unwind and just fall into it all, you become the darkness and let the darkness become you. Thats when I know you should whisper to your angels.
Be creative, be alive and most of all be free…
I love your gypsy souls….

The rain has been falling for days as a reminder to me and to the world that it is time to wash away the hurt and the pain… its time to wash away the shell that we have built around us to make us numb to our feelings. It’s okay sometimes to be stormy and to totally lose composure. Sometimes you have to dance with the fire in order heal the burn.
I have watched so many people push their feelings and emotions away. Locking them tightly inside like Pandora and her cursed box. It’s within that they build and become insidious, finally finding a way to bubble to the surface… they peak their heads out eventually, saying, “hey remember me the nasty little creature you locked away long ago?”
Its time to face our fears, dance in the dark, pull off the mask and break it. Its time to live a little because until you learn to let loose and actually be with the wind, the rain and the water, you are only going to drawn under the pressure. Eventually something has to be done, some form of spiritual house cleaning.
I keep hearing the famous line from Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams, “When the rain washes you clean you’ll know” and I think I am beginning to understand the process of cleansing. There are still so many layers to break through, to wash away and to really come face to face with. One thing I know is now its time, time to get back to basics and time to get back to spirit.
I want to stand outside and spin until all the colors of blue, black and purple swirl into gray, until the ground and the sky rumble as one. I want to spin until I become the eye of the storm. I want to spin until there is nothing left but the rotation of change. I want to spin until I am one with the great wheel of the universe. The truth of dancing with the chaos is finally settling into my bones.
The only way to the light is through the dark. I think that having a beautiful, peaceful and spiritual life is all about learning to move and bend. Spiritually we must be like a tree in a great storm… if we are rigid and unwilling to move, then parts of use begin to crack and break and eventually our foundation will be pulled away. Movement is key in all of this. Movement is among the most important spiritual keys to follow.
I ask you to stand in the rain and rage with the thunder and be cleansed by the water and then as all the layers of fear, pain and negativity fall away declare, “This is MY life and MY truth. I will move with spirit and dance with destiny.”
Take from this rain the truth that there are signs everywhere speaking to us, asking us to pay a little closer attention. Signs come from everywhere and they may be global or personal, just look for the essence of everything and allow yourself to connect with the essence of everything rather than the shell.
So much love,
Cards, tarot and other oracle decks are wonderful tools of focus and intentions and they can be utilized as a powerful tool of manifestation. They can become a wonderful way of “mapping” out what you want to come in the future.
The cards are a great tool for manifestation because they give you a way to visualize the things that you are trying to bring into your life. The cards are at their simplest level pictures with meanings. By selecting the pictures that mean what you wish to bring into your life, you can start to truly map out your goals.
The concept of mapping out goals with the cards is an extremely powerful method that can help you to attain your dreams and manifest whatever it is that you are seeking in life. The cards are pure forms of concentrated energy and their purpose is to link up with intentions. These can be intentions that have already been laid forth, or the cards can serve as foundation stones for new goals.
The game of Mapping with the cards is basically creating, destroying, affirming and shifting energy patterns. The most essential spiritual tool that we are all here to learn is conscience manifestation and that is exactly what this method of using the cards will do.
I have found two ways of doing this.
Begin by laying out the cards in your spread of choice, allowing the cards to fall in whatever way they wish. Interpret them looking at the meanings based on the placement and interpretation.
Now go back and look at the cards and their placement. Look at what each card means. Is it a something from the past, present or future? And is it something favorable? Do the cards that you have reflect your idea of what you want your life to be like?
If you want something to be different, then go through the deck and look through each card and find cards that speak to you… now lay them over top of the cards that you wish to “Re-route”… you are trying to create a new path on the map of your life. In essence you are sending a different energy into that specific place in your life, thus manifesting something different.
Now this isn’t only reserved to the future, that’s why you look at the past and the present in this exercise too… because you can change the energy that is associated with a past situation and a present one, even if you can’t change the events themselves.
The second process you can do is chose your favorite layout and instead of asking the cards a question and then laying them out you go through the deck and hand pick each card for their placement in the spread. In this way you are actually creating the map from beginning to end.
This idea of Mapping out your destiny is a form of conscience manifestation. I am constantly urging my clients to believe in their own personal power and their ability to manifest. Manifestation starts by changing your thoughts, beliefs and feelings and knowing that you alone have the power to pull into your life the things that you want and need.
The Spread: Hermes Map (Please Click this link to see the PDF of the spread layout)
I have created a spread that will help you in this journey. I have titled this spread, Hermes Map, because Hermes is the god of travel and the messenger to the gods. With this spread you will be laying out intention and giving it to the universe, thus creating a shift that allows the universe to tailor itself to your desires.
I have modeled the spreads layout after the Caput Daconis (The head of the dragon) geomancy figure because this is figure represents positive energy moving and shifting in the direction of something new.
Card One: The Spirit
This card is the essence of your goal. It represents the heart of the matter, the true energy behind what you are trying to pull toward you. Part of manifesting is understanding what gives life to something. For example: if you are trying to manifest a new home then you are in essence trying to manifest security or something along those lines.
This card should be at the heart of your goal. Strip down your desire and find out what it really is. You may even revise your goal based on this. If you are seeking $600 by Wednesday, you might actually be seeking security and not just money. This card takes some thought!
Card Two: The Keeper
This card is the energy that sees the goal through. You are asking this cards energy to keep your goal on target. You need to adapt the identity of this card as you are seeing your goal come to life.
Again you must get to the heart of the goal. If you were trying to manifest a new job your guardian may be “gratitude”, because as you see your goal of gaining a new job, you are trying to learn to be grateful for what you have.
Card Three: The Trickster
This card is about revealing your fears and insecurities behind the goal. If you want to manifest a desire successfully you must learn to be honest with yourself. Keeping negative energies locked away that may sabotage your goal is unwise to this process. You want to get the trickster energies out now so that you can move forward effortlessly.
Ask yourself, “What limiting feelings do I have about this goal? How might I sabotage this? Why can’t this possibly work?” This card is the negative nasty energies that we don’t want to face, but we know exist.
Once you’ve picked this card… Look at it for a second and then affirm that it no longer has power over you. Turn this card face down because it no longer exists in your map of manifestation. You have passed its tricky riddle and you are free to move along your path.
Card Four: The Reflection
The reflection card is basically your image of yourself after the goal has been attained. How will you feel once you have seen your goal come to life? Chose a card that really speaks to the Spirit and the Guardian and that takes back its power from the Trickster.
Card Five: The Treasure
The Treasure at the end of the map is the goal itself. You have followed the map, starting with your intention, holding the hand of your keeper and snuffing out the flame of the trickster… you have seen your reflection as you happen upon this beauty.
The Treasure is truly the manifestation of your goal. You have traveled the path keeping in mind and heart the true essence of this treasure. You have been guided by the Keeper and The Trickster, realizing the reality of your goal along the way and now you have it firmly in your hand.
This card is the manifestation of your goal. This card is your goal. So pick a card that shows your goal specifically!
Once you have laid out all of your cards, be with each one for a second time and focus on their faces. See their truth, beauty and power and take them into your being. You have laid out the map, now you are breathing life into it.
Affirm as you travel through each card that your goal is coming to life. And remember that true affirmations are in the present and you do not use the word “no” or “Not”, you would never affirm, “I no longer feel bad!” you would actually affirm, “I now feel wonderful!”
To affirm the energies of your map, ask for your personal guides and guardians to come in. Pray, write your goal on a piece of paper if you wish and tuck it away somewhere special. Light a candle. You could leave your cards out with the candle. You could even sleep with the cards under your pillow until the goal comes to pass.
The possibilities of the Hermes Map spread are endless… just have fun and add to or take away whatever you like. You may wish to change the layout of the cards to fit with another figure of geomancy. You may wish to add a new piece to the map, such as a card for the timing of your goal!
If any of you are interested in this method of manifestation and need help in the process understanding what cards to pick or how the layout works I would be more than happy to help you. We could even incorporate this in your reading. Let me know if you need any help at all.
