Let Go of Fear and Live The Life Of Your Dreams

I don’t know about you, but I am very excited about this much spoken about month of April. For those of us who have honored and respected our lives, we will experience a magical month indeed. The Posse of Angels is reminding us that unexpected opportunities and connections will manifest in physical form in order for us to begin to fulfill our intentions of stepping forward into our dreams. And there is a big difference between those that take advantage of these connections, and those that let these chances go by. The difference is that those who will take advantage of the opportunities will allow their commitment to their dreams to be of greater consequence, than any fear that they may choose to have. The dictionary definition of fear is that it’s an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause us harm or pain, or is a threat. And if fear is a belief that we have had programmed and educated into us, then with our free will, we can choose to go beyond our fears and educate them out of our lives by simply not choosing to believe in them. And this is precisely what The Posse of Angels wishes to address today, letting go of fear in order to live our dreams. Choosing to be so committed to our heartfelt desires so that no fear whatsoever will stop us. Yet fear of stepping forward and sabotaging our dreams may not be obvious, as I helped a client of mine discover. A lovely client and Reiki student of mine is one of the most gifted and talented spiritual Teachers that I know. Several years ago, she experienced gang violence when she was shot and a Dr. told her that she would never walk again. Not liking her Doctors prognosis, she got a second, third, fourth and fifth opinion and each Doctor told her the same thing that she would not walk again. While speaking with her physical therapist , he told her that there was hope and a chance for her to walk again. Choosing to align herself with this hope, she went through grueling physical therapy. By not taking no for an answer and with her iron will and determination, she eventually walked again. And if walking again was not enough of a success, she is an inspiration as she has gone on to become a physical fitness trainer. She is a remarkable teacher because she has taken the hardships and adversities in her life, learned from them and gone on to affect her world; not with hatred, anger and revenge, but with great love, compassion and forgiveness. And even with overcoming this enormous physical challenge, because of her fear and long held issues around worthiness, she sabotages herself in a very sneaky way that stops her from stepping forth and being of service as a Teacher. She is constantly studying and taking course after course for ever more certifications to make herself ‘good enough’ to be a Teacher. Now, The Posse of Angels is reminding us that there is nothing wrong with bettering our minds, and learning things. But there does come a time when we must face our fears and know that we are well taught and have all we need to offer our gifts and abilities to others. What I find amazing is that she physically defied the medical Doctors and walked again and yet her fear of being worthy and measuring up stops her cold in her tracks when it comes to sharing her gifts with others as a Teacher. And I can understand exactly what my student is feeling because there was a time when I was also in fear of teaching. You see, in 2003, I had been well taught as a Reiki Master/Teacher and had established my Healing Practice for over a year, when I received a random call. The caller asked when I would be holding my next class to learn Reiki. As I gave Reiki healing and Intuitive Counseling sessions but had never taught Reiki before, I literally laughed into the phone and said, “Oh you don’t want me, you want my Master Teacher who lives about 2 hours away.” I then gave them her number and hung up. A few minutes later, I received another random call from another person who wanted to study Reiki with me. Again, I giggled and I thought how synchronistic and directed them to my Master Teacher. Well, when God and the Angels want us to do something, they are tenacious and will not give up and keep sending us signs. Over the next few days, I received more calls from people enquiring about studying Reiki with me. The penny finally dropped that a) the Universe was encouraging me to teach even though I had never taught Reiki before and b) that I would have the wherewithal to be a great Teacher. After attuning many hundreds of Reiki Master Teachers and Reiki Practitioners over the last 11 years, teaching Reiki is such a delight and absolute joy for me. But like with anything new, I had to start with my first student and get over my fear and just do it. And The Posse of Angels is nodding their heads and saying that having one’s dreams and stepping forward to living them are two very different things. Many people sabotage themselves from actually living their dreams because everything in their life is not quite right yet or in perfect order. One client of mine who was offered to be host on a TV program said, “I can’t possibly step forward yet, as I have so much more weight to lose.” And if we do play this game of waiting for everything to be perfect in order to live our dreams, it probably will never be the right time. The truth is that God doesn’t listen to what our ideas of how life needs to be before we can step forward into our dreams. He knows that the perfection already exists in the fact that the offering of those opportunities and connections were Divinely given to us. The Posse of Angels is assuring us that when opportunity comes knocking at your door, please know in that instance that you have all the expertise, courage, strength and wherewithal to step forward through that door and share your gifts with others, because God’s grace has allowed it to manifest and appear on your doorstep. And if God believes in me, and presents me with opportunity knocking, that is all the reassurance that I need to walk through the door and live the life of my dreams!

Allow Yourself To Be The Voice

With one of my favorite shows starting its’ 6th season, it reminded me of the wonderful opportunity that I was given to see it grow from its' very first show in the US, to becoming an award winning program. With my husband Pete having worked on the first 5 seasons of ‘The Voice’, he was able to get me tickets to many of the tapings. If you have not seen this wonderful show, it is quite different from other singing competitions; as the coaches, not judges, have their chairs faced away from the singers. In these Blind Auditions, things like age, dress, gender, and culture do not play a part in their selection as the coaches are solely choosing the contestants on their voice. Having been at the tapings season after season, I realized several consistent themes with this show. Firstly, I’ve watched these talented singers pursue what they passionately believe in. Each season there are several contestants who say that they used to have jobs other than singing, but by not pursuing what they love to do they felt as if a piece of them was missing. This feeling of not being whole had led many of them to quit jobs and pursue their music. When they were asked what their fall back choice was, they simply said that there is no fall back; for this is what made them feel alive. Having the courage and the conviction to be who we are is not always an easy path to follow. Many of these contestants sing for meager wages, and their families have had to sacrifice much. They endure whatever it takes for their talent and none of these hardships are enough to dissuade them from turning away from singing; turning away from whom they divinely are. This theme of enduring is not only relegated to sacrificing for the pursuit of their talent; as many of the contestants have also had to endure heartache and loss. Some have spoken about losing a parent to illness; many speak of having a life threatening disease or being bullied as a child. In each case, their suffering pushed them and made them even stronger. And for those who experienced a loved one who crossed over, they have seen just how precious life is and it made them even more determined not to compromise the pursuit of their dreams. And even though each contestant has their unique path that brought them to ‘The Voice’, once they get picked by a coach in the Blind Auditions, they begin anew on a level playing field. The thing that surprises me most about whether the singers continue to advance toward the finals has so much more to do with allowing themselves to be who they are, rather than having an incredible voice. This is so because everyone who gets through the elimination process to make it to the Blind Auditions already has a great voice. What I have been able to observe is that the difference in the contestants and the level of their performance is directly affected by how much they believe in themselves. This determines how much they will connect with the song and sprinkle their performance with magic. This intangible magical element that one may not be able to explain is something truly Divine when it happens. This magical moment tugs on our heart strings, as it stirs something deep inside of the listener. When the contestants practice their songs, coaches most often comment on whether or not the singer has connected with the song. And when the contestant has pressed their coach for more explanation, they simply say, “You just have to believe in yourself more.” In fact, when I have seen the really magical performances, the singer was not singing to be better than anyone else or even to sell more itunes. They were merely bringing forth their God given talent and being themselves. Just recently, when season’s 5 winner of The Voice, Tesanne Chin, was asked what it feels like when she sings, she simply stated, ‘I really don’t know, as something within me takes over and I almost feel like I am not there.” The Posse of Angels and I surmise that what she allows to take over is the grace of God coming through her as she uses her natural abilities. Allowing yourself to be who you are comes from a peaceful, deep knowing within, that you are a child of God and allowed to shine your own special brand of uniqueness. This illumination from within lights us up like Christmas bulbs and it gets the world’s attention. But the funny thing about allowing ourselves to be who we are is that we are not doing it to get attention. In fact, we are not doing it for the money, nor the recognition or the fame. For like Tesanne, we are allowing ourselves to be who we are divinely meant to be. The Posse of Angels is saying that there is nothing that you cannot accomplish, if you have the courage to allow yourself to voice who you are. If you have faith in your abilities, and remain determined and focused on what you love doing, then you allow the beauty of what you love, to be the beauty of what you do.” By allowing yourself to be The Voice you have an infinite number of ways that you can use this powerful instrument. You could be the Voice to bring light to injustice. You may use your Voice to help soothe, heal and bring more love to a world that has been ravaged by hatred and war. Or you may use your Voice, like I do, to empower others to reconnect with who they are in order to step forward and realize the fulfillment of their dreams. And unlike the show ‘The Voice’, life is not a competition that we have to out sing anyone in order to win. All we need to do is to honestly speak up and share our passion with others. And The Posse of Angels is reminding us that whether the contestants on ‘The Voice’ make it all the way to the final show and win the competition is not the overriding goal. Just by the mere fact that they are pursuing who they are, they are successful. For success is not to be measured so much by the position that one has reached in life; as by the challenges and obstacles which one has endured and overcome. Because the contestants have dared to believe in themselves and their talent, each one of their lives has been irrevocably changed. And as a result, their lives have grown so much grander and fuller then they ever could imagine and their world expanded in direct proportion to their courage to be 'The Voice' and pursue who they are. Until next month, go out and share your voice with the world!

A Life Long Love-Affair with Yourself

With this February newsletter, I thought I would check in with the Posse of Angels and ask them what they thought of the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday. Well, The Posse of Angels was very amused and they asked me, “Why don’t humans have a National Breathing Day?” and “Why isn’t there a National Beating of your Heart Day?” Breathing and the beating of our hearts are similar to love, as they happen naturally. And most of the time, they occur without us even realizing it. I guess their point is that to love and to be loved is a natural thing that all human beings have, and that we can have love in our lives in any second if we choose to receive it. But most of the time, we are so dead set on preaching to the Universe how love is supposed to be in our lives, that we diminish and close off the possibilities of how and when we can experience love. If we buy into the vision of love perpetuated by the greeting card companies, the chocolate manufacturers, the florists and the jewelers, we can get caught up in a very, commercialized form of love that is built around conditions and expectations. For instance, some of these conditions might have us thinking that: • My partner loves me if he buys me flowers. Or, • If he really loves me, he will buy me flowers and a diamond ring. Or, • If he truly loves me the most, he will buy me flowers, a diamond ring, a new Ferrari and a villa in the South of France. The whole point is that once we start to play this game, it is difficult to know where to stop. Appropriating a single day to show love is so insanely ludicrous because at the most profound depth of whom we are as human beings is the fact that WE ARE LOVE in every single second! In fact, we are so inextricably linked with God that even if we do not think we are love, this connection of divine love always exists underneath any false premise that we choose to perpetuate. And if it is dormant and asleep within us, love can be re-awakened in the blink of an eye. And counter to what all the great romance novels and romantic movies have shown us, love does not happen because of who we are with, love happens because of who we are. But, it can only happen with our permission. Many times, we deny that we are love because we are replaying old programs of believing someone else’s words that caused us to feel not worthy or not deserving of love. But deep within, underneath any negative belief system, the angels want to remind you that you are not only love but you are more beautiful , more powerful and more magnificent than you could ever possibly imagine. In fact, as a child of God, you are loved, not only on a specific day, but in every single second of every single day, every single month and every single year before you were born, since you born and will be forever. This is not dependent on what you are given, what you own, what you drive, what you wear or if you ever produce, create or even if you achieve anything. This love is indisputable, unconditional, constant and un-wavering. How extraordinarily fortunate are you!!! If your life is not representative of these words, it may be because you have forgotten who you are and are allowing external expectations and conditions to dictate if you are allowed to be loved. Actually the hardest I have ever seen the angels weep, is for those clients who have completely forgotten who they are; as they have forgotten the love of God inside. Because when we forget who we are, we stop loving ourselves and stop seeing ourselves as having any importance. Once we stop acknowledging our importance, we then begin to seek and find our identity in other people and things outside of ourselves. This sets us on a perpetual carousel of giving our power away. So remember, if you have been disappointed by love on Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year, ask yourself where in your life that you can put more focus and attention on the creation of your importance. Perhaps you could: Write that book that you have inside yourself? Dare to switch to a more honoring job? Take that holiday that you’ve dreamed about? Honor your gifts and talents and share them with the world. And if you wake up on Valentine’s Day morning and do not find your new Ferraris parked in your garage, or your breakfast tray does not come with a diamond ring on it nor two plane tickets to your villa in the South of France, remember that love is not something that you are given or have to search for; love is something that you already are. Until next time, remember that by having a life-long love affair with yourself, it will constantly bring you the richest fulfillment from the inside out.

The Key to the New Age is Your Passion

Firstly I would like to say a HUGE happy Anniversary to myself and Angel Healing House Radio. For it was 2 years ago, January 2012, that I began hosting my first radio program on Blog Talk Radio. Looking back over the past 2 years, there were certainly some things which I intuited would happen as a result of starting my own radio program. My show has enabled me to go global and opened up the opportunity to internationally share the inspirational messages from my angelic family, The Posse of Angels. And although, I had been a guest on many radio and television programs, this was a very new experience for me. So was I fearful and did I doubt myself? You bet! But the encouraging voice of God and the angels was much stronger than those two illusions of doubt and fear. Armed only with a great excitement to host my own show, I stepped forward in faith. Every Tuesday morning at 11am (PST) I sought to bring forth a heavenly show filled with humor, down to earth practical angel advice, and most of all love. Looking back over the last 2 years, I can clearly see that there was one area in particular, probably the most important area, that my radio program allowed me to develop, and this was in the area of my writing. From the initial show, The Posse of Angels told me not to feature any guests on my program, as my show would solely be a platform for delivering angel messages on relevant topics. Not having any guests, and never being quite 100% sure whether I would have any callers, I channeled and wrote information on topics to present. And while I had written books and blogs in the past, this regular weekly radio show kept me on task and forced me to be diligent in writing. As a result of this, I allowed my natural talent of writing to be developed every single day. Now it is amazing what one is capable of when one takes a leap of faith and believes in ones’ passion. Every week, by honoring my great love and gift for writing, I built a strong foundation of being able to create easily, with words flowing without effort. The Posse of Angels is agreeing with me and saying that all this practice to my passion of writing has been like a dress rehearsal. The accumulated energies of my focus on my passion is opening new doors of opportunities and connections that are aligned with my writing to abundantly foster, promote and support me . In fact, with all of my diligence as a writer and author, The Universe will have no ambiguity as to how it will help me to co-create my heartfelt wishes and the fulfillment of my dreams. And while my path to new beginnings is different to yours, I can tell you that we are all in the same boat, as we are riding on the waves of a very new frequency and a great change in energy. This great change in energy is like nothing else we have experienced on our Planet. And just like nurturing my passion of writing, this new energy has all to do with each and every one of us finding that passion within and then sharing it with the world; for sharing it with the world is the most important component. This sharing energy is expansive, limitless, and filled with endless possibilities. And the wonderful news is that this energy is accessible to everyone as we begin to come home and own a new power within. I’d like you to ask yourself, “What would you do if you knew that you could not fail?” “ What would happen if you truly let go of all preconceived ideas of what you should do and followed your heart as to what you love doing and share it with the rest of the world?” The perfect time to review, own and share your unique and special abilities is in the present moment, because all we have is the nano second of the Now. In the majority of cases, this passion is something that comes effortlessly and easily from you. This passion or talent is often something that when you do it, you lose all track of time and you would do it even if you were not getting paid for it. This gift that was given to you by God is so much a part of you that it is inextricably linked to who you are and brings your heart immense joy. The Posse of Angels is saying please do not hide your passion away from the world because that passion is the very reason that you are here in physical form. Now you may be thinking, “But I’m not talented, there’s nothing that I do that is creative in order to share with others”. But it’s paramount to remember that we each have an integral purpose for the world. In fact you incarnated on the Earth plane in physical form in order that you can reconnect to your passion and rediscover your importance to the Universal plan. That importance to the Universal Plan is held within your passion, your gifts and your abilities. The Posse of Angels is saying that it is important to note here when so many people are looking to be more spiritual, and searching for answers in their lives, that the number one thing that will reconnect you to feeling like you are living Heaven on Earth, is for you to recognize the blessing of your God given gifts and to shine and bring them forth to share with the rest of the world. Your passion is the key to the New Age and each of us holds a piece of it to create. And while you may not see yourself as the next Jane Austen, Picasso, or Mozart, you might have a passion and love for rescuing animals, saving the rainforests, helping the homeless, saving the whales or inventing ways to clean up our beautiful Planet. By writing that book that you have inside of yourself, your story could deeply touch the lives of others and help encourage them to live their passion. The song that you write could lift the hearts of those who are disillusioned and give them hope to live another day and try one more time. By passionately bringing forth your talents and abilities with fun, joy and creativity, you will work with these powerful energies to open doorways to the most magical and miraculous connections and opportunities for yourself. But these magical doors will not appear and open for you, if you have not stepped forward and shown faith and trust in yourself as part of the Divine plan. That Divine plan that you signed on for, was to share your glory with the rest of humanity. This glory within you, your passion is begging to be recognized now and the Earth is waiting for you to celebrate it and bring it forth with all your enthusiasm and excitement. By uniting the recognition of our gifts and passions and the powerful brand new energy available to us all, this winning combination will bring forth an amazing reality for each one of us. And I, just like The Posse of Angels, can’t wait to see what miracles we all will create.

Belief In Our Dreams Equals Magic

Belief in Our Dreams Equals Magic!! I adore this time of the year. Come rain or shine or anything else, on December 1st all of our 100 angels come down from the attic and fly onto the Angel Healing House Christmas tree. We only have angels on our tree and The Posse of Angels is stating, “What else would Angel Healing House hang on their tree? I am like a child, filled with wonder and enchantment absorbing the decorations, embracing the season of giving and brimming with good will and peace for all. And while every day for me is Heaven sent, this time of the year is especially magical because my belief that anything is possible seems to be heightened. The ability to choose to believe is certainly not seasonal. It’s within everyone’s capacity, yet is underutilized by many people. What makes many of us automatically assume that the fulfillment of our wishes either will not happen, be very difficult to achieve or that we will have to accept a compromise? The Posse of Angels is saying that while our programming and belief systems have a great effect on our perceptions of life, it is we who ultimately have free will as to how we choose to perceive our lives.The unwavering belief in oneself and belief in ones heartfelt dreams creates an alchemical magic that often brings about astounding results. A wonderful example of the power of belief came to me from a client who found me on my Angel Healing House Blog Talk Radio program. Jim, not his real name, was a classroom teacher and he longed to rise to the position of being a principle. Deciding to make movement to the fulfillment of his desire, he went back to school for additional credentials. With increased certification, he searched constantly to find a position. But year after year, he kept coming up empty. When I spoke with him, he said that he didn’t get a job as a principle because there were too many over qualified people for too few jobs, and that good paying jobs like these were scarce. He also said that he and his wife longed to move north; as the neighborhood in the south in which they lived had changed for the worse and was quite dangerous now. But with not getting a better job, there was no way they could afford to move as the northern suburbs were more expensive. In addition to being downhearted, he was physically suffering from back problems, shortness of breath, and was not sleeping at night. The more he spoke, the more the Posse of Angels showed me a leaf that had been caught in an eddy and it had his face on it. This Jim leaf was caught in a downward whirlpool of his own making, created by his thoughts and beliefs in lack and focusing on a defeatist attitude of not being able to achieve his desires. Firstly, The Posse of Angels swooped in and reminded Jim that there is only what he desires. Actually there only is what each and every one of us desires. This was an unbelievable revelation to him as he thought he was in fierce competition with everyone else. I went on to paint him a very different, but vivid picture of just how multi-dimensional we are and that there is a different reality for everyone depending on their desires and their energies within. I then explained to him, compassionately of course, that until he changed the sad and sorry tale that he kept telling himself day in and day out about not being able to get a job, that he would never, ever achieve what he felt in his heart was his due. The reason for this was because his feelings were so energetically opposite to what he desired. Once we allow this knowledge to settle on the deepest part of our soul, then we realize that it doesn’t matter how many other people in the world are going for those jobs. What matters is that whatever we ask for and faithfully believe in, must manifest for us. But I emphasized that we must let go of the how and the when for our hearts desires to be realized, as this area is the providence of God and the angels, not ours. In this way, the most magical of possibilities and miracles can occur to answer our prayers; far from the limited ways our logical minds can conceive. For the rest of the session, I shared with Jim tried and true, simple exercises that he could focus on and practice that would help turn his desperate, sad energies into those which were more grateful, positive and optimistic. By letting the grace of God work in his life, I told him that he would easily draw a job to himself that fulfilled his desires. Four weeks later, I received this email from Jim: “I just wanted to let you know and to thank you and the Posse of Angels for your guidance. I am happy to say that last night I was named Principal at a terrific elementary school. I know that our session together and my changed, positive outlook made all the difference. My wife and I both send well wishes to you!” Jim New Jersey, USA This was not only wonderful news, but Jim went on to tell me of the additional miracle that was attached to the fulfillment of his dream. He said that the principle’s job that he was offered was in a Northern suburb, exactly where they initially desired to move! Fancy that, what a coincidence! Jim told the Universe, God and the angels exactly what he desired and what clinched this deal with God, was his focus, faith, and belief in the magic of life. Then ABRACADABRA, magic happened. Now The Posse of Angels is chiming in and saying that our having faith is not the belief that God will do what we want. Rather it is the belief that He will do what is for our highest good and for the highest good of all concerned. In this way, all prayers are answered. But in order for this to occur, we must surrender our linear limited view of life, and allow for our prayers to be answered through God’s handiwork. My lovely client did not begin to change his outlook of despair to belief in order to influence God. But his change to optimism and having a positive outlook was to change the nature of himself. And as many of us have experienced, it is only by changing from within does our world begin to change on the outside. You need to believe in things that have not happened yet; for they will never manifest into the physical form without that energy of belief behind them. One of the greatest gifts that we can give ourselves, not only in this holiday season but all year round, is the gift of belief. By surrendering and allowing for the grace of God to enter into our lives, we will allow for infinite possibilities to create miracles for us. Now, is being asked to believe an easy thing to do, especially when there is no tangible physical evidence that things will all work out for the best? Absolutely not! But having lived this way for 10 years, I find that it is only when I am in a state of suspension, with absolutely no place to land in sight, that it forces my wings to unfurl in order for me to fly. And as I fly along, buoyed by the grace, the majesty, the infinite love, protection and guidance of God and the angles, I may not be aware of my destination, but the magic in life happens because I have had the faith to let God be the wind beneath my wings and allow His winds to carry me and give me direction.

Happy Homecoming to Who You Are

Like many people, I love this time of year with its pumpkin scones and lattes, cheery jack-o-lanterns and cooler temperatures. The mere smell of nutmeg and allspice has me hankering to wear my pink flannel bunny pajamas and putting my scarves and sweaters from the back of my closet to the front. And while the month of October in the past has been a time of harvest, The Posse of Angels is sharing with us that October had many of us experiencing a very different kind of harvest this year. The harvest of October has traditionally been associated with gathering foods to can and store away, in order to sustain us physically through the winter months. Yet, what many of us have experienced this past month was so revealing, that in some ways, the spiritual nourishment that it provided will feed our souls now, during our winters and for all our days to come. After we experienced a somewhat sleepy summer with not much happening, September saw many of us draw connections that finally opened doors and created forward motion towards our heartfelt desires. And after this brief flurry of activity, October came in and seemed to have presented us with a time of stillness. The Posse of Angels is nodding their heads and saying that this time of void was invaluable to really take note of our lives. The quiet of October gave the collective consciousness a chance to reset, as to how we relate and connect on a more conscious level to ourselves, to others and to our environment. And as we spent so much of October resetting how we interact in the world, many returned to fully living from their Divine Eternal natures. And The Posse of Angels is saying that many have finally decided to return ‘Home’ to themselves. With many Lightworkers doing this, we chose to return to our biological families in October. Our relationships with our families are sometimes the hardest to deal with; as they are often laden with the heavy burden of blame. The Posse of Angels says that there are several reasons for so many of us reconnecting with family. By returning to our birth families, many saw just how far we have come and how much we have enlightened. With many Lightworkers having cleared and cleansed their issues, we have allowed ourselves to detach from family stories and dramas. Practicing detachment, we allowed our family members to live and experience their own journey. And by loving them for exactly where they choose to be, we have transcended the need for blame, finding fault in others and seeing ourselves as victims. With clear-eyed awareness, many of us have taken responsibility for our contribution to the perpetuation of negative emotions attached to family relationships. Having done all of the above, we have chosen to spiritually come home to who we are and then chose to literally go back home to our roots. My client Mary (not her real name) experienced her own ‘going home’ and what it felt like to return to her birth family in October. She had revealed to me that being the only girl in her family of boys had been very difficult for her whole life; as she was raised in a culture and religion that praised sons and virtually did not recognize daughters. It was actually voiced by her parents that education would be wasted on her, as she was very pretty and the expectation was that she would be married off to someone rich and have children. And while Mary was not against marriage or having children, she grew up deeply sad that her talents of writing were not praised like those of her brother’s. Putting all her effort into her looks, Mary made the decision to get the recognition of her parents by marrying a wealthy man. She went on to have children and endured many years of being subjected to his abuse. After she divorced, she decided that even though her family did not honor her talent of writing, she would respect her gifts and she began to write books. In the years that followed, only out of a sense of duty, she forced herself to visit her family. On the days before her departure, she would begin to sense a heavy feeling of being either judged or not being listened to. And every time she visited, her feelings were like a self-fulfilling prophesy that had her holding back tears of rage, at her parents blatant disregard for her efforts as they lauded her older brothers. Through Intuitive Counseling and Reiki Sessions with me, Mary was able to clearly see her life from a higher perspective. She understood why she had chosen certain souls to be her parents. She also saw that, because of her own actions in previous incarnations, she had chosen their contrasting characteristics to help challenge her to grow spiritually. Through our sessions, Mary became empowered to respect her talents as a writer. With renewed enthusiasm and passion, she finished her first novel. She then honored her writing and signed with a literary agent. It was sometime later that she joyously called, to tell me that a major publishing house was going to publish her first book. Now that she was a published writer, she decided to return home to prove to her family that she was deserving of being a recognized writer. Sitting with her family while they had tea, she excitedly told them what she had accomplished; as she had kept the publishing of her book a secret from them. The only thing that her mother said was, “You know, your older brother is such a brilliant writer, why doesn’t he get a literary agent?” It was in that very moment, that Mary realized that what her mother said or did not say, no longer had any effect on her. With the work that Mary had done in our sessions, she was no longer reactive. She knew that her mothers’ words and actions, had nothing to do with whether she was talented or not. Her mother’s words were reflective of her upbringing and programming to favor sons. In that instant when Mary realized that she no longer needed anyone else’s recognition of her talents, she smiled knowing that she was no longer needy and dependent on her family’s recognition. Mary thanked me for helping her remember that we all are Divine and each of us chooses to be where we are on the journey towards enlightenment. I had shared with Mary that we each carry the keys of spiritual awakening within us. Some of us choose to find the keys to enlightenment quickly, some choose to find the keys slowly and keep themselves in the dark. And then there are some others who choose never to find the keys and never experience enlightenment. Turning the mirror back on herself, Mary remembered that it took her to the age of 40 to find her spiritual keys and awaken to who she was. She then let go of judgment on how her parents should act and allowed them the same freedom of choice on whether or not to enlighten. By surrendering judgment, she stopped blaming others, and using them as an excuse for being a victim and not honoring her God-given talents. By letting go of self-imposed limitation, she opened herself to live from her divine eternal nature and her unlimited power inside. Mary said her trip back to her family was not so much about reuniting with them, but more so of reuniting with herself. For the reflection of her family helped strengthen her conviction to the path she wished to follow. No longer shackled to some self-imposed illusion of the past, she was now free to confidently step forward to her dream of being a writer. Happy Homecoming to One and All!

“Allow God to be Your Compass”

Co-creating with God and the Angels has been my guiding light and pretty much my only compass for the past 10 years. As a child of God, I know deep in my heart that God and The Posse of Angels are always answering my prayers for the greatest good of myself and the greatest good of all concerned. Now I really want you to take note of the last part of that sentence, ‘for the greatest good of all concerned.’ When we hold intentions for our life through our prayers, dreams and wishes we normally focus on an outcome that would be most beneficial for ourselves. And from the second we do this, God and the angels hear our prayers and they immediately start to fulfill our intentions; but not in the way most people imagine it happening. You see, we have been pretty much programmed that our dreams should come true upon the mere utterance of our request. Like so many others, I was brought up with the idea of ‘immediate wish fulfillment’ with examples like, the rubbing of Aladdin’s Magic Lamp, the instantaneous effects of crossed arms and blinking eyes of Barbara Eden in “I Dream of Genie” and who could forget the rapid fire results of Elizabeth Montgomery’s twitching nose in “Bewitched”. Yet, The Posse of Angels wants to remind us that there is a reason that many of our prayers do not manifest instantly. The reason is that God and the angels, in their infinite wisdom, organize the magical and miraculous coming together of people to serve one other. These people often present us with the uncanny, perfectly timed and synchronistic opportunities and connections, to bring about the fulfillment of our desires; for the greatest good of us and the greatest good of them. In fact, for the greatest good of all concerned. The Posse of Angels wants to remind us that although each one of us is a special, unique being, we are all part of the one collective consciousness. On one hand, we have a very important puzzle piece to share with the world. But it is important to remember that the majority of the time, for the fulfillment of our dreams to come to fruition, we have to be open to receive in the way that God wishes to give to us. And, that so often involves other people. In this way, no man, or for that matter, woman or child is an island. With God’s limitless scope and view of the world, He can cut down on His work time by multiplying the fulfillment of many prayers all at once. This is done by organizing synchronistic meetings for people to be of service to one another. (Funny that God is so great on time management, when there is no time in Heaven!) Having devoted myself to live this way for the past 10 years, I have experienced unexplained and wondrous synchronicities that manifested to answer my prayers and desires. And recently, I experienced one of those miracles. As many of you know, I had been told by The Posse of Angels for many years that I would be doing, in their words, ‘radio but not radio’. Not knowing quite what that meant, I waited for further signs to receive clarity on how to proceed. That very clear, undeniable sign showed up in January 2012 to begin my own show on Blog Talk Radio. I created my weekly Angel Healing House Radio program to passionately bring forth channeled messages from my beloved angelic family to give people intuitive insights with free angel readings. One of the first callers that I received was a lovely lady from New Jersey, named Caroline. Immediately upon speaking to her, I felt that she was a kindred spirit and there was a deep bond between us. She went on to explain that she no longer resonated with her job of working on Wall Street. When I asked her what she loved doing, she replied that she wanted most to help people. The Posse of Angels shared with her that she did not have all the puzzle pieces as yet to be shown the signs as to how and when her desire of helping people would be fulfilled. Caroline continued to be a regular listener and caller and then suddenly, I didn’t receive any calls from her for many months. About 4 weeks ago, I was on air and winding down one of my weekly shows and with 5 minutes to go, I saw a single phone call light up the switch board. Usually with such a short amount of time to close the show, I do not take any more calls. But something told me to answer it. It was Caroline and she said “Candy, I have some very exciting news”. I remembered who she was and told her that I would call her back after the show. When I called her back she said, “It was finally revealed to me by my guides and angels what I am being urged to do. I have become a literary agent and publicist to promote advanced Lightworkers and would love it if I could represent you.” My whole body lit up like a light bulb with a shiver of goose bump confirmations. For you see, it was 4 years ago when I began to channel a huge novel and completed it about 2 years ago. Ever since then, I have asked ‘The Posse of Angels’, “Should I send it out to publishers”, and they emphatically said, “No!” I would then wait and impatiently say to them, “Should I try to find a literary agent?” and they repeated, “No! By your own, you need do nothing. Wait on the will of God to show you how to step forward with this important book.” So instead of worrying about the how and the when of it going out into the world, I began to thank God for sending me the best person to fulfill my dreams of getting my book published….that person is Caroline. I would not have found her if I had not followed God’s word and the angel’s direction to do, ‘radio, but not radio.’ Within a week, we had signed the literary agent’s agreement and my book was sent out. And while this is a professional agreement, we know that because we both allowed God to be our navigator and to show us what the next step will be, He and He alone brought us together to ensure the most magical outcome. And in this way, I have pretty much lived this quote that I created, “I let go of the steering wheel of life for God to drive me around to all the miracles.” With His eyes on the map, I am free to look at life with eyes of wonder, enchantment, belief and the miracles born of having faith in God’s direction and His compass for me. His track record has been pretty good up until now. Having followed God’s directions so far, He has led me to realize my Fairytale life come true. Have fun letting go of the steering wheel and being driven around to all of your miracles!
