From time to time folks question about power animals in their lives. A common question is often posed after a power animal appears during a meditation. "How do I connect with my power animal? What message does my power animal have for me?"
This is an example for the importance of connecting to mother nature. Let us consider the eagle. When one considers the eagle what is the image that the eagle brings to you? What emotion does he instill in your heart? There is no wrong answer here. As a psychic, I am able to connect with helping spirits around my client. It is up to the client however, to connect with their message. Feel the eagle, the energy. Watch eagle rise to the sky, a great leap of power. Be like the eagle. Rise to meet spirit. Feel the force of your rising energy. Eagle is there to help.

It has been a while since I have written! Shame on me! Winter is an undercover period for me and I have a difficult time overcoming the moons of darkness. I seem to desire hibernation. Today, I would like to talk a little about one of my favorite ceremonies, the Soul Retrieval.
Every time I think of a Soul Retrieval, or I remember a Shamanic Journey for a client, I am reminded of the line from the Beautiful Hymn Amazing Grace, "I once was lost, but now am found." There return of light in each soul retrieval client that is indescribable. Part of the Shamanic experience for me is the privilege of bearing witness miracles, both small and large. In fact, there are no minute miracles.
Soul Loss is a scary sounding word for a common spiritual condition. Each one of could benefit from a Soul Retrieval. When one experiences a trauma, the parts of the whole that cannot process the trauma are fractured. I like to say that the soul pieces that that cannot handle the trauma take a vacation. The Shamanic view of illness indicates that when pieces of soul are missing, there are energetic gaps. The object of the soul retrieval is to bring the soul parts home and complete the whole, thus giving the client access to missing energy.
In Shamanic practice, Soul Loss is indicated by a several symptoms. In Soul Retrieval, Mending the Fragmented Self, Author Sandra Ingerman shares the symptoms as follows:
1. Difficulty feeling in body.
2. Apathy, feeling "numb."
3. Chronic depression.
4. Immune system issues; chronic illness-often with no diagnosis
5. Addictive behavior
6. Significant memory gaps.
There are many paths to regaining soul parts. I am not saying Shamanism is THE way. Shamanism is a way that I have found healing and effective with the client. Within my practice, I have found that ceremonial soul retrieval is a beautiful, sacred way for my clients to reconnect with self. In the next part of this series, I will discuss what to expect during the soul retrieval ceremony. If you would like to talk with me about Shamanic Ceremony for your healing experience, please feel free to contact me to set up a consultation.

Many people ask me who their guides are during a reading. Most of the time, I connect with guides clairvoyantly, meaning I see them. I can describe them, and even what they are wearing and where they are from; However, often there is no name. More often than not, guides are happy to take a name that resonates with their charge. For example, once I was giving a Akashic Consultation for a group of sisters. One asked me the name of her guide and the name "Hank" popped in. They all immediately broke out into peals of laughter! It was revealed to me that "Hank" was the name they had christened the statue of a deer in her back yard. They would all pat Hank's head each time they visited. This was a humorous way for the woman's guide to provide her with a name and validation that he was with her. The lesson for her was that the name was not as important as the presence.
Because Guides are spirit, they appear to us in forms that we understand. They are a form of light and vibration. It is our humanity that must assign a title and a face. They take the form of energetic symbolism in which we are comfortable with connecting. The best way to connect with your Guide's name is to ask it! The two of you can come up with a title that your find appropriate and that you both resonate with. It may be a name in which you new from a past life you shared with the guide or just a name that contains a vibration that resonates with the needs of your soul.
If you would like a consultation to help you connect with your guides, contact me. I would be happy to assist you on your journey.

During a reading today, a woman repeatedly asked me if her business venture was going to fail or if her husband was going to leave her when she went away on business. All aspects of the reading were positive. Here husband was a solid, stable personality. She was a person who was greatly organized and one of those gifted people who had the ability to make her ventures successful. Her issue? The heart of the matter was herself! Each time I did a spread for her, the outcome was good, but the possible blocks were her own fears and insecurities. Will her relationship fail her? If her husband has his choice, no! However, there are issues within herself that were going to stand in her way. I am going away and my husband will leave me because of this is a mindset that was not going to serve her marriage. Instead, her guides suggested she focus on trusting her husband's stability and the gift of his support. They suggested she use words to speak the truth of her successful relationship and her savvy business skills.
Often, we can vastly improve our situations by minding our own words. This is a well known psychological term coined Self-Fufilling Prophecy. In a nutshell, self-fulfilling prophesy translates words have power. Tell a child he has issues with reading, and he will struggle with reading! Want to succeed? Stop second guessing yourself! Take a look at the way you talk to yourself, and there you might just find the root of your struggles. Manifestation is empowered by belief and trust. A simple change of thinking from I'm not sure if I made the right decision to I am competent, successful business woman can make all the difference in the world. Granted, to reach this point, many of us have to go through a great amount of work and healing. However, taking the step to change your thoughts and words-even if you do not yet believe your new positive language-is an excellent first step toward manifesting your bright future.

Lovely beautiful morning, my friends! Today's weekly reading is brought to you via my wonderful Bev and Jim at Ohm Sweet Ohm. Last week, I attended a festival so in Lexington and saw this deck. This reading is from The Guilded Tarot, by Barbara Moore. We begin the week with the Emperor. In this context, Emperor tells me that although you are ready for action, remember every action has a reaction. The emperor never reacts out of emotion, he reacts from a state of balance. Although action in your situation is necessary, make your action deliberate and avoid the repercussions of rash behavior. If you react in balance, the outcome will be to your benefit.
Midweek brings us the Three of Wands. In this context, this is an emotional card. If you have had a conversation with a loved one, they are sitting on it processing the conversation. The man is waiting for his ship to come in and so are you, dear reader. I know it is hard to watch and wait, especially if the conversation was a hard one. If you played your cards right, (remember The Emperor?) your sincerity and balance will pay off in the end. There is nothing you can do to control the situation, this is a time to allow the other person to sit with there emotions and a time for you to practice patience and step out of the need for control. In the context of The Emperor, you have made your action, and sent the energy out. Now you await the results. Patiently, you await and there is no action that can move things now. Patience is an art that we can all use practice in! Sometimes it's hard to sit and wait things out. Wait is often the answer we get when we implore Spirit.
We end the week with The Queen of Swords. Your patience has served you well, my friends and you will reap the benefits of your careful choices. Queen of Swords is deliberate in her actions and speaks with a connection to the Divine. Remember, the outcome depends on your careful choices. When we act with a deep connection to spirit, we move with ease and without attachment to outcome. Here the queen sits in the results of her hard work. Allow yourself a little time to rest and give yourself a pat on your back. You deserve it! Have a great week, folks!

Better Late than never, here is your weekly forecast! This week is Messages from Your Angels, by Dorreen Virtue. I want to start out by saying, Okay, who's been the over achiever here? The first card I prove is about self care- Teresa: time-out! You've been so busy taking care of everyone else's needs, but now it's time to stop and take care of yourself. This feels more to mee like someone or someones are work-a-holics. The grind is getting to you and you are forgetting to eat well and get some sleep. This card poses a call to your health. Slow down and pay attention to your body or your body will get your attention. Get some colorful fruits and veggies into your system and boost your immunity. You need it!
The second card is Bridgette: Caution is warranted. Look deeper into this situation before proceeding further." If you are getting ready to sign on that house, make sure you have it thoroughly inspected. Take care of yourself by taking care of your personal business. Get that second opinion and save yourself grief later. The investment you make in a professional opinion will definitely pay out in the end. Slow down and take care. There is more to this situation than meets the eye. Midweek is definitely a time that should be spent in moving slowly and with great care.
The weekend brings in Archangel Uriel: "Your emotions are healing which enables you to open to greater love. I will help you to release anger and unforgiveness from you heart and mind." Seems like the last month has been one of healing and processing for everyone. This weekend is a good time to get a cup of chamomile tea and allow the herbs to do the work. This is about stepping out of the way and asking spirit to gently help you release that which no longer serves you. Get a massage or reiki session. This is about getting out of your own way and allowing spirit to balance and work. Through you. A good crystal for the weekend is Angelite. This is a powerful stone that promotes deep rest and soothes the soul by connecting one to the angelic realm.
Have a great week folks!

I have had a very busy week this week and the last two days have been spent inward, so writing has not been on the fore front. I awoke this morning and the air was cool and crisp. I picked up my drum and drummed in each of the four directions. The mornings are so beautiful here in Kentucky and it is a wonderful heart centered thing to connect with my drum first thing. I join with the birds and the breeze and the sun to connect with the beauty of all that is. In this, I am gifted with tremendous peace.
I have been reading Black Elk Speaks, and he beckons me like an old friend. As I read his book, I feel his presence all around and the sound of his voice is palpable. Much of the book is of his life as a warrior, however; he was also a medicine man. I have learned much from him and hope to continue a working relationship with him on my healing path.
With that, I would like to leave you with this quote from the book, Black Elk Speaks: "....the voice of the drum is an offering to the Spirit of the World. It's sound arouses the mind and makes men feel the mystery and power of all things."
Aho, dear friends.
