The Emotional Playground for Empaths

The Emotional Playground for Empaths

Merry Meet :)))))) Many of you know that one of my huge passions in life is working with empaths. :)))) I am blessed to work with so many of you and I couldn't imagine my life without all of you. :)))) I also know that I have a lot of you that are new :))) So I wanted to make sure that you had the resources that you need. :)))

If you are just joining us and are unsure what an empath is the following article is a great place to start.: Are You An Empath? This is another great article:Understanding Being Empathic, What is an Empath? I have an entire collection of articles that you can grab on this page: Empath Articles

In the past I have gone into grounding and shielding, two skills that are critical for empaths. The next step is learning to recognize your own emotions. I know, it sounds like the most simple thing in the world, but you would be amazed how many emotions you can carry as an empath that aren’t even yours. It really is like an emotional playground out there. If you’re not careful you can wind up with a myriad of emotions that have nothing to do with you.

So let’s start sorting it out. What’s mine? What’s yours? When you feel intense emotions, we need to start sorting them out. If you woke up in a good mood, drove to work, and when you got out of your car in the parking lot you felt angry, is it you? Or could it be you drove past thirty cars on the way there, with people stuck at lights, and late to work and were experiencing mild cases of road rage. Take a deep breath. Think about why it is you feel angry right at that moment. If you cannot come up with a reason, chances are, it’s not yours. So give it back! Release the negative emotion back into the universe. Take a huge deep breath and say, “This is not my emotion, I release it.” Take another one and say, “I am happy and calm.” It can also be helpful to have a one word chant. I use the word “calm.” I will repeat it quietly to myself until I feel back to normal. If you have time to ground, by all means, ground. That is the best method to release the energy that you have picked up. However, many times, just realizing that it’s not yours, and allowing it to go away will do the trick.

Once you start getting in tune with your own emotions, you will be surprised at how many things can and will affect you if you let them. Just being aware of this can begin to make a huge difference in your like immediately. Use the simple breathing exercise above as often as you need to. With time, regular grounding, shielding and just plain old being aware your life will start to change for the better immediately.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Full Cold Moon Blessings





Full Cold Moon


Merry Meet :))))) Full Moon Blessings! :))))) I bet you know how tonight's Moon got it's name ;) Here in New England this is definitely the coldest month of the year for us. It was a whole 1 degree yesterday and I believe we are around 11 today. I'm snug as a bug inside with the fireplace going looking at the pretty snow outside my window. That's not to say that all days are freezing where I am. :)) We get some warmer ones that get into the 40's and sometimes 50's during this time as well. :))

One of my favorite things about this time of year though is the snow, especially the snow on the night of a Full Moon. I honestly believe it is the prettiest Full Moon of the year. My fingers are crossed that it will be warm enough this year to go out and see it. It can get amazingly bright out on the night of a Full Moon and the colors are just amazing. :)) It's part of why I selected the picture above as it's really close to the views that I will have here on the night of the Full Moon. The Moon won't be quite as bit, but sometimes when it rises it can look absolutely huge in the sky. :)))

Tonight is also known as the Full Wolf Moon and honestly many of you who have been with me for quite some time are likely more use to me referring to January's Full Moon as the Full Wolf Moon. Native American's gave it that name for the wolves use to start howling outside the camps this time of year as food was beginning to get scarce for them. The white wolf is still one of my main spirit animal guides and I will do something to thank him tonight as well for all the times he has walked next to me on my path.

Tonight's Moon is in Cancer. Why, you might ask is it in Cancer when above I told you that she would be in Libra this evening. The Moon is full this morning at 6:34 EST and during that time she is in Cancer so that is where this Full Moon's energy is coming from and why we identify her as being with Cancer. :)))

2017 is going to hold some challenges for you going forward. I told you it would be a year of hard work, challenges and rewards. So tonight we are doing some important work to set the stage for that. :))) Grounding work. What you want to focus on tonight is your home and immediate relationships within your home. You want to make sure that the environment that you spend the most time in is optimal for you to nourish yourself and grow spiritually this year. Don't forget to book your Full Cold Moon Reading it will help you to understand where you currently are and what you need to do right now on your path. :)))

You also want to pay particular attention to what makes you feel safe and secure. When you are safe and secure you will find that you are able to rest completely, cleanse and ground enabling you to walk your path balanced which is really what you want. In doing so you will make better decisions and you will find that your confidence is increasing as well. This is some pretty important framework that you want to do for this year. :)))

So tonight look around you and make a list of what you can do to make your home be that personal oasis for you. What can you work on to improve it in the next couple of weeks that will help you to feel more settled. I know in my home we are on a bit of a cleaning spree removing all the Christmas decor and bringing in the Spring decorations as they lift our spirit this time of year. I purchased a small aroma diffuser this year as well which is wonderful :))) I can use essential oils in it and it brings their scent through my home, something that I am enjoying. :)) We are also working on repainting the walls in our home. :))) We just redid my son's room this past weekend and it's amazing the difference a coat of paint can make. :))))

So look for things that will lift your spirits and make you just feel happy to be home. Don't forget your relationships at home as well, that's a really important aspect of this. Plan some things that you can work on over the next couple of weeks. Raise your wish list up to the Goddess this evening and ask her to help you to create an environment that the energy will be in your best interest. Tonight would be a great night to charge a rose quartz crystal as well to carry with you. :))))

Have a Blessed Full Moon!

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Assertiveness For Earth Angels



Merry Meet :))))))

How many of you are empaths? :)))) Huge Hugs, I know the majority of you are. Many of you know that I love Doreen Virtue as her work often speaks to me. Many of you also know that my guides love to "assign" reading to me. I saw the initial launch campaigns for this book a couple years ago and it caught my attention. I put it on my wish list and thought I'd probably grab a copy in the future.

Over the next several days this book was put in front of me at least once a day. I actually received five notices about this book in the same evening and I realized that my guides were definitely sending me a strong message. I was to read this book.

As soon as I started reading it I understood completely why. It was very relevant to what was currently going on in my life, and I felt as if my guides were having a one on one coaching session with me.

For those of you that don't know, Doreen Virtue calls Empaths Earth Angels. :))))) So now why is this book so important? It helps us to understand who we are and why we do what we do. I found myself identifying with numerous traits in this book. One of them is apologizing for absolutely everything. lol :)))) I didn't realize how often I'm sorry was in my vocabulary until I read this book. The other thing it addresses is our tendency to always put others before ourselves. I can't tell you how many nights I've been up half the night trying to help people in their lives or writing articles trying to help.

Part of why I love Doreen's work is her gentle nature. She is a very easy read, I actually almost finished this book in one sitting. She will help you to take an honest look at your life and see where you may fall into patterns of actually being "too nice," and how to handle these situations and make sure you are taking care of you at the same time. I always struggle when trying to recommend books for you to read as I always have an issue with the ones that are out there, they are either too harsh, not on point the way I think they should be, or they really don't address things that I want them to for you. Not to mention there aren't many out there to begin with. :)))) For those of you that don't know I'm still working on mine. Assertiveness for Earth Angels I would put as a "must read" if you are an empath. It's worth every penny in my opinion.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Happy New Year!


Happy New Years Eve! :))))

 
Merry Meet :)))))) Are you ready?   Tonight's a pretty big night.  Tonight we say goodbye to 2016 and welcome 2017 with open arms.  That's it ;) You want to embrace this New Year because things are going to be different this year. :)))) You are going to be in charge.

All of you who are with me are empaths or gifted intuitives. :))) It's no mistake that you are working with me. ;)  Do you remember what that means when it comes to working with energy?  Not only are  you sensitive to it, but you will be adept at working with it as well which means working with the law of attraction is a piece of cake if you believe it to be so.  So guess what? You are going to believe it starting... Right Now. :))))

Ready?

I want you to sit down with a pen and a piece of paper.  Bonus if you have some sparklies that you can add to it, think sparkly pen, stickers, glitter whatever you like. :)))

On that piece of paper I want you to write your 2017 magickal wish list.  That's it.  Make a wish, three of them.  You are going to make them come true this year. :)))  At the bottom of the page write "I am in charge."

Write them down and then doodle, decorate, make that piece of paper super special because you are going to put it somewhere where you can look at these three wishes all year.  Think bedroom mirror, bathroom, wherever you will pass them a lot and you can remind yourself every day of your wishes and the fact that you are in control of your dreams. :)))

Each day I want you to go by that list and read that paper three times. ;) The magick of 3x3. :))) You can do this!  Come 2018 they are all going to come true ;)

We are rocking in this New Year solid in Aquarius and I am loving it. :)))) Aquarius is going to boost your confidence and give you the courage to make changes that are necessary in your life to live the best life for you.  You are going to find that the emphasis this year is on your individuality and connecting to your true self. :))))

This year is the year of the Rooster! :)))) New Year 2017 of the Fire Rooster will start on January 28, 2017 – the second New Moon after the Solstice.  You are going to find that 2017 is going to be a really powerful year energy wise.  It's going to bring it's fair share of challenges for all of us as well.  However if you meet those challenges head on with the fiery energy that is coming your way there are some pretty big rewards up for grabs as well.  Are you ready to play? :))))

This year you want to put the focus on defining who you are and being very clear with your intentions going forward.  Hard work, commitment and loyalty should be at the forefront always this year and if you keep those thing in mind while following your heart and intuition and being true to yourself you are going to come out on top this year. :)))

Oh!! I keep meaning to send you all out a separate email and time is just escaping me. I'll try to get it out in the next few days.  I want to tell you about it now because I think a lot of you would love this.  Every year I get a series of books that I just adore from an amazing woman, Leonie Dawson.  Hold on I'll grab a picture of this years for you. :)))



They are awesome!!!! The help you with setting goals and planning your year.  If you work with them you can have really amazing results.  I've been using them for a long time now. :))) They have one for life that I can't recommend enough. :))) For those of you who run a business you don't want to miss out on the business edition. I get it every year and it helps absolutely huge. These are a great gift to yourself as they can  and will change your life if you use them. Oh! The planner is amazing!!! Helps keep me on track all year.   Here's the link in case you are interested :))) 2017 Shining Year Workbooks

Oh! Don't forget to grab a New Years Tarot reading in the shop! They are special and only come around once a year. :)))))) The deluxe reading is two special readings in one. :))))  You can find them in my new shop here:  New Years Tarot Readings

So what is everyone up to this evening? :)))) New Year's Eve is a night that I love to spend at home. :))) I know a lot of people like to go out.  I am spending the night in with Earl and the kids. We are going to have a New Year's Eve ham and then some munchies later.  We will spend the night together watching movies and playing games. :))))) New Year's Day I love to go to the ocean or for a drive. Peppermint hot chocolate and Christmas lights sounds like the perfect evening to me. :)))

Wherever you are today and whatever you are doing I hope you have an amazing end to 2016 and a wonderful beginning to 2017! :)))

Have a magickal night!

Lavender Bliss





Lavender Bliss


Merry Meet :)))))) As I'm writing this, I can smell lavender wafting through my house. :))))) I'm quite confident I have done an article at some point about lavender for you, but as I started writing today's issue and saw it in the correspondences and could smell it I just had to write to you and rave about lavender again today. :)))))

There is something about lavender that is just soooo soothing to me. For as long as I can remember it has been my go to scent for calming. Lavender with Vanilla, and Eucalyptus with Spearmint are my two staples for aromatherapy in my house. I love the color as well :)))) It's just as relaxing :))))

When you use lavender in your home it helps to promote harmony and happiness overall. You would be amazed at how it can affect the energy in your home. If you've ever gone shopping for cleansing bundles you've probably noticed that white sage is often paired with lavender. They work amazing together. The Sage cleanses and the Lavender replenishes the energy with positive energy.

Lavender is also known to be very protective. It's one of my favorite methods for protection as it's strong enough to provide psychic protection but gentle enough to not disrupt my personal energy. It is also excellent to use with little ones. If you have little ones that are intuitive hang some lavender in their rooms and burn some essential oil in a burner and you'd be amazed.

It is known to help with having psychic dreams and remembering them, but it can also help protect you in your dreams. It helps you to sleep soundly and awake rejuvenated. :)))

It's definitely an herb that I would not want to go without in my home. :)))) Hang lavender around your house, tuck it into wreaths and other decor, make sachet pillows and put them in drawers or under your pillow, use it in your bath, use it for it's aroma, the possibilities are endless with lavender. :))))))))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Study The Past To Perfect Your Craft

Original Artwork By Syl


Study the Past to Perfect Your Craft


Merry Meet :)))))) One of the things I've learned on my path is how important studying the past can be for our craft. It's one thing to study the methods of how to work with it, it's another to understand the origination of those methods, why our ancestors would have done them in the past, and their significance in our practice today.

For instance, many of the spells we work with nowadays will call you to use cauldrons. If you understand that cauldrons are actually a vessel that was widely use to cook in throughout history, it can help you to understand how to use it. For example, I have several in my home now. The one that is getting used most frequently is the one over my fireplace which is simmering cinnamon daily.

Another example is bread. Think about how huge of a staple bread was in history. If you study archaeology at all you will find that they have found many statues of the Goddess next to ancient bread ovens. How do you think bread was used in ritual celebrations? Perhaps to help honor the Gods and Goddesses of the Harvest. Perhaps one of the statues was of Hestia, Goddess of the Hearth.

When you study ancient cultures and the Deities that correspond to them you will start getting an understanding of our roots. Wicca is indeed a fairly new religion but with very ancient roots. When looking to study history ancient paganism is a very good place to start. Study the history of the Pagans and you will find yourself marveling over how many things you recognize. :)))))

One of my favorite people that I've had the pleasure to train with is Raven Grimassi. He's just an incredible author and witch and I will forever be grateful for what he has taught me. Once of the things I love about him is his teaching methods as whatever he teaches you he will almost always teach you the origin of that practice. It helps you to understand why you are doing what you are doing. By doing so you forge a bridge of energy between yourself and every person who has ever performed the action you are doing. That's a more complex concept that quite simply put, by knowing the links to the past you will link to the past and increase the energy on your work. :)))))

I do have a couple of books by Raven that he's done that have a lot of information on the history of the craft, if you're interested. :))))

The Witches' Craft: The Roots of Witchcraft and Magickal Transformation

Hereditary Witchcraft: Secrets of the Old Religion.

Enjoy! :)))

How I Found the Spirit of Christmas This Year :)))



How I Found the Spirit of Christmas This Year :)))

Merry Meet :)))) How many of you are ready for Christmas? :))) This is one holiday that isn't Wiccan that I actually do take the time to celebrate with friends and loved ones.  I really enjoy the spirit of the season. :))))) Of course Santa as well ;) We are making peppermint sugar cookies for him right now. :)))



Things happened in such a way that I really have been having trouble getting on to write on the blogs. The holiday got extremely stressful for me the other week and I'll be honest, I was starting to lose ground a bit.  I've had a wicked cold the past couple of weeks that I've been working through and the pressures of the season and providing everything everyone needs I always take on too personally? I am so hard on myself! LOL :)) Toss in a few emergency situations over the last couple of weeks and my stress level was just too high and I was having trouble bringing it down. I realized it last week and one of the days I took a long long walk in the woods...almost 10 miles actually and that helped... Temporarily....




Earl and I went to Maine a couple of weekends ago for a night.  The ocean instantly calmed me and all the beautiful lights. :)))  We had the best time! We stayed out incredibly late driving around and looking at the beautiful lights.  The picture above is the Nubble lighthouse.  It's really incredible.  If you look it up online you will see some really gorgeous pictures of it.  My camera didn't do it justice.


I also saw one of my favorite places in the world, Perkins cove all lit up.  Even though it was absolutely frigid we got out to take pictures on our favorite bridge and see the boats with Christmas trees on them.



 Although Sunday was not much warmer, we were in the teens most of the weekend, we managed to get out for a couple mile walk on the cliffs above the ocean. :))))) It was exactly what I needed. :)))





Oh! They even had trees made out of lobster traps lit up! :))))







In this picture you will find Santa and Mrs. Claus out for a run! :))))))  When we were getting ready to head home yesterday the emergency notice came on the radio letting me know of a huge snow storm coming in last night.  I was thrilled. :)))

The morning after we came home, I woke up to a snow filled wonderland outside my door and I could not have been happier.  I made sure to take a couple hours to go outside and throw snowballs with the kids and help build a snowman. Settled back down now with chilly cheeks and the promise of a car ride in a few hours with hot coco's to go look at the lights I was completely in the spirit of the season and honestly :))) I have held it ever since.  I am writing to you this morning with the smell of peppermint sugar cookies looking forward to visiting my parents this evening to celebrate Christmas with them. :))



So often the holidays go by in a blur for me and when it's over I often feel let down because I feel like I missed the season? This year I resolved not to do that.  I have to tell you though when you look out your window and you see snow it helps! :)))This year it looks like I have been delivered my wish of a White Christmas. :)))

This season I really want all of you to focus on bringing that magickal energy of the season towards you.  How many of you remember watching Christmas movies when you were little beyond excited to see what Santa would bring for you? I wand you to find that this year :))))) How many of you still watch Christmas movies? :))))) Celebrate the season and enjoy it.  Leave everything else behind. This is the end of 2016 and soon we will find ourselves welcoming in 2017.  Are you ready? :))))))

This is the perfect night to enjoy, count your blessings, give thanks, and look forward to the future with excitement. :)))) Find the magick ;)

Have an amazingly magickal night! :)))))))

Much Love and Many Blessings,
