The Our Father
Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
The Hail Mary
Hail Mary, full of grace.
Our Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women,
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
pray for us sinners,
now and at the hour of our death.
Guardian Angel Prayer
Angel of God my guardian dear, to whom God's love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side to light and guard, to rule and guide.
Thank you GOD for everything.
These have been the prayers that I say daily since a little girl. I know the power of prayer. God loves us so much and just wants us to talk to him.
Get quiet and speak from your soul. He will listen.
What a week!! wow!! I survived my first tornado watch and warning and
I have had to make MORE changes. Healing is hard. While you are healing, your life feels like you are in a tornado. It whirls around you and you feel like you can't get grounded. You try to ground and meditate but deep within you know you are trying too hard. It shouldn't be hard. It should be Grace and EASE. So I turn to prayer. I have been praying A LOT. I also ask for help from the angels. They give me so many beautiful signs.
Now I know why so many people decide to just BE. It takes guts to bring up your crap!! It takes courage. It takes a lot of pain to heal the parts of life that have been painful and have brought you to where you are today.
Through the healing I have searched out teachers and have met people on the spiritual path. Not all on the spiritual path are of pure heart. They can only see what they choose to see. I learned that is what awareness is. We all respond and react from our own awareness.
I have had a lot of my religious friends worried about me. One told me to BE CAREFUL. Now I know what she meant. She truly loves me. She was worried with my working with spirit that I would open myself up to negative energies. This is where the gift of discernment comes in.
I have learned what discernment means. To discern means,
a: to detect with the eyes <discerned a figure approaching through the fog>
b : to detect with senses other than vision <discerned a strange odor>
: to recognize or identify as separate and distinct : discriminate <discern right from wrong
3.: to come to know or recognize mentally
I have thrown myself into healing my heart, soul, mind and body.
I am not perfect. I make mistakes. I sometimes react before thinking. (hmm.. I AM HUMAN after all). Humans make mistakes. But you live and you learn. You heal the hurt, you breathe and you thank God no matter what.
I know with all the love in me.. the part that I know is the best part of me, I tried to heal a relationship that went sideways. It seems the more you try to explain yourself to someone the more they don't understand. That is where the discernment comes in. You have to decide has the lesson been learned and is it time to move on? If you are being harshly judged then its time to look to GOD and ask for guidance. Love says "I see you.. all of you.. even the ugly parts and I choose you!" so when you don't feel that any more you have to distance yourself from people and places.
I had to decide am I on the wrong path? I know I am a wonderful conduit to the angels and everyone I have read found a sense of peace and felt the love but perhaps its time to just BE. I have tried to fit in where I don't belong. I am beginning to wonder if I fit in anywhere?
I have tried to emulate teachers, my mom, my bosses and seems to me I am meant to just be ME!! so today I promise to go out into the world using forgiveness of myself and all others as the key to wellness. I use gratitude to count all my blessings so that all future blessings are ushered in. And I thank GOD for all of it. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other as you never know what is waiting for you just around the corner.
I also read a beautiful post on Facebook today.. it says
YOU CAN'T CONTROL THE IMPRESSIONS OTHERS FORM ABOUT YOU AND THE EFFORT ONLY DEBASES YOUR CHARACTER.
from ~ A Gleam of Dreams.
so here's to letting GO of control of all of it. I am who I am .. and I know GOD thinks I am beautiful.. :)
Every Human being seeks external validation. We want to know the answers to these questions. 1. Do you see me? 2. Do you hear me? 3. Does what I say matter?
We want to be loved. We want to feel a part of a community.
We may search in all the wrong places. But then one day as if by magic and miracles you find a community you think that you belong to. You fall in love with them. You feel safe and loved. But then the truth of reality of life happens. Parts of it are an illusion. It becomes broken. A circumstance occurs and the momentum of the actions can't be stopped and the life lesson becomes a much bigger one than you had ever imagined. You learn you have to LET GO. You have to TRUST GOD that he has a larger plan at work. That HE is saving you from something. You learn the lesson swiftly that FRIENDSHIP is something that takes years of cultivation and love and respect and compassion and kindness. You learn that just because you may meet someone on a weekend away and the words I LOVE YOU are said, it doesn't mean anything. Actions speak louder than words. Unconditional love is something we know at our soul level. We come from LOVE. We are LOVE and we return to LOVE.
But you have to learn to get out from the circle when LOVE is no longer being served. Unconditional love isn't I will love you only when you act and say and do the things I want you to act, say and do.
Take the lessons you learned and go on with your life. Be your beautiful you. Learn to trust your gut. Listen to it no matter what. Count your blessings and turn to GOD.. He will rescue you.
Be your Beautiful self and don't allow another person's opinion of you make you sick or make you feel bad. You are GOD's creation. Accept yourself.
I love you.. I really do. when I say those words I mean them. So I am going about my work now, quietly, silently with GOD as my anchor. Living and learning. And all the while thanking HIM for saving me from what I can't see. Thank you GOD .. thanks for the life lesson to seek WITHIN.
Opportunity to Forgive
"This situation brings you the opportunity to heal, grow, and release negative patterns. Hold the intention of seeing the other person's inner Divine light and goodness. We will help you release unforgiving thoughts, feelings, and energies, and lift you to a higher place of peace and compassion." The angels sent you this card because they see that you've grown weary of a recurring negative pattern in your life. To break this cycle, it's important for you to release old toxic thoughts about the current situation and relationship. You can do this by breathing deeply, and on each exhalation, giving your fears, worries, anger, and other painful emotions to the angels. Forgiveness doesn't mean that you are condoning the other person's behavior. It just means that you're unwilling to carry toxic feelings and thoughts about him or her. Release, be free, and experience positive patterns through forgiveness.
Additional meanings for this card:
Avoiding blaming yourself or others.
As you release anger, a creative resolution to this situation will appear.
There are hidden blessings in this relationship and situation.
Focus upon desires instead of fears or judgments.
Pulled from Daily Guidance From Your Angels oracle cards by Doreen Virtue.
Forgive all others - not because they deserve it, but because you deserve peace.
Forgiveness sets you FREE.
love and angel blessings,
111 - Monitor your thoughts carefully, and be sure to only think about what you want, not what you don't want. This sequence is a sign that there is a gate of opportunity opening up, and your thoughts are manifesting into form at record speeds. The 111 is like the bright light of a flash bulb. It means the universe has just taken a snapshot of your thoughts and is manifesting them into form. Are you pleased with what thoughts the universe has captured? If not, correct your thoughts (ask your angels to help you with this if you have difficulty controlling or monitoring your thoughts).
222 - Our newly planted ideas are beginning to grow into reality. Keep watering and nurturing them, and soon they will push through the soil so you can see evidence of your manifestation. In other words, don't quit five minutes before the miracle. Your manifestation is soon going to be evident to you, so keep up the good work! Keep holding positive thoughts, keep affirming, and continue visualizing.
333 - The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. Call upon the Ascended Masters often, especially when you see the number 3 patterns around you. Some of the more famous Ascended Masters include: Jesus, Moses, Mary, Quan Yin, and Yogananda.
444 - The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don't worry because the angels' help is nearby.
555 - Buckle your seatbelts. A major life change is upon you. This change should not be viewed as being "positive" or "negative," since all change is but a natural part of life's flow. Perhaps this change is an answer to your prayers, so continue seeing and feeling yourself being at peace.
666 - Your thoughts are out of balance right now, focused too much on the material world. This number sequence asks you to balance your thoughts between heaven and earth. Like the famous "Sermon on the Mount," the angels ask you to focus on spirit and service, and know your material and emotional needs will automatically be met as a result.
777 - The angels applaud you, congratulations, you're on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true. This is an extremely positive sign and means you should also expect more miracles to occur.
888 - A phase of your life is about to end, and this is a sign to give you forewarning to prepare. This number sequence may mean you are winding up an emotional career, or relationship phase. It also means there is light at the end of the tunnel. In addition, it means, "The crops are ripe. Don't wait to pick and enjoy them." In other words, don't procrastinate making your move or enjoying fruits of your labor.
999 - Completion. This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means, "Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now."
000 - A reminder you are one with God, and to feel the presence of your Creator's love within you. Also, it is a sign that a situation has gone full circle.
Smuding is a practice known to many different religions throughout the world. Buddhists use incense and Catholic churches use Frankincense. Native Americans/Canadians use sage, sweetgrass, cedar and other herbs.
HOW TO SMUDGE?
Place the material of choice into a shell, clay pot, or other non burnable container or vessel. Light it and allow it to burn for a minute. Blow out the flame. It is the smoke that is created that clears the negativity, cleanses, focuses and purifies. I always open my windows and doors to allow fresh air in.
HERBS BEST USED FOR SMUDGING.
Sage- purifies, heals, banishes negative energy and carries protection energy. It is used to bless cleanse and heal a person, space or object.
Cedar- spiritual protection. Helps heal medical issues, speeds recovery, gives an instant feeling of peace. It is often used to clear a new home and protect it from unwanted influences.
Sweetgrass- removes negativity. Improves space with loving peaceful energy and is used to create harmony in the home. It helps attract new energy. ITs sweet vanilla scent is used to sustain the effects of smudging.
Tobacco- enhances spirit communication and gives powerful insights, heals old wounds.
When smudging I call in GOD to bless the space. I ask the angels, guides, guardians to help me clear the space. I ask that only positivity remain.
I learned recently that you can pray while doing it and also perform the sign of the cross at the doors.
Walk around the perimeter of the house or room, wafting the smoke to each corner and outside. Use a feather ( not owl) I use a turkey feather that I blessed by thanking the animal that provided it... to push the smoke to each place in the house, or use your hands. As you pass by an open door or window, you may use the feather to push the smoke outside, carrying with it the negative energies.
Just follow your gut when doing it.. some people do all the rooms in the house.. some do the main level only.. depends on how the energy feels when you begin. Its all in the intention that is set before you do it.
When complete and the ashes are cool, return them to the earth giving thanks to the earth for the plants that aided in the smudging.
Smudging is a sacred act. Thank God, guides, guardians and angels for helping you.
Phillippians 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
The Glory of friendship is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers someone else believes in him.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Today has been an amazing day. When you least expect it someone will throw you a lifeline. An ear. Their time. Their love. Their SUPPORT.
Their gentle guidance. Yes.. through the Godspark that is within each of us there is a light. Sometimes when you are healing you will have a moment where your light may not be as bright and someone will lend you their light to reignite the light within you. That is when you feel worthy. You feel that your humanness is ok. That no matter what- ALL IS WELL.
Have you ever had a friend who with their gentle, angelic energy swoops in and rescues you and picks you up off the floor with their guidance, love and support and no judgement who reminds you of who you truly are? I have such a friend and I will never forget what she did today. I want to thank her. She is an earth angel who God sent to me today and I owe her a debt of gratitude, but she wouldn't take it. She is a great person. Inspiration. Shining light. I want to thank this friend. She knows who she is and she is my gratitude and I send her so much love and appreciation tonight. Never forget where you came from. We are all just walking each other home. No one is better than another. We are all wounded. We are all healing.
Thank you my friend. Thank you for reaching out. I love you so much!!!
Thank you God.

When I used to work full-time I used to dislike Sunday nights as the next day is Monday! Now that I work part time doing what I love most in the world I love Mondays! I love waking up to a fresh cup of coffee from my beautiful husband at 6 am. I get to meditate and create my day the way I want. How amazing is that? how do you create your Monday so that it is a Magical Monday for you? I would love to hear from you.. Let me know.. Let's all create some magic together !!!
When I started working with a mentor my life changed exponentially. She has a daily spiritual practice and now so do I.
As soon as I wake up I thank GOD for the day. I have a saying I say.
Thank you GOD for this day. I am open and receptive to all my blessings. I ask for protection from all negativity seen and unseen. I ask all my angels from Heaven for protection over me and my family. I ask for help from all my angels. I ask how may I be of service today? what is your plan for me GOD? Please give me signs that I understand and guide my steps.
I say prayers and some days I meditate. I ground myself and I connect to GOD visually. I set an intention for the day. Most days I journal.
Then I go onto Facebook for awhile. I check out the pulse of my friends and see who needs some support. I update the Angels page I help with. I fill myself up with positivity. I listen to soul radio, I write and I update my website. I feel gratitude and I share it. I do gentle exercises and stretches. I eat the best I can. I breathe. I am mindful. I get some sun and I enjoy nature. I try to just BE. I am very grateful and I do my gratitude. I have a prayer group I am a part of. I also have a great support network of family, friends and mentors.
Starting the day with a spiritual practice that feels good for you will help keep you healthy. It helps you connect with your spirit and your soul. It helps you build your inner strength. If you want help with a daily spiritual practice message me.
