Last night I went to see a local soul coach and angel channeler speak. It was a fun and eye-opening evening, and the energy in the room was great. I was surrounded by over 100 like-minded people, all with open minds and hearts. Here’s what I learned from yesterday evening about getting in touch with your angels:

1. Use automatic writing. First, meditate for some time to open your own channel and relax. Then write down in a journal or on paper a request to your angels to help you answer a question. Next, begin to write without thinking. Let everything pour out and see what information you get!

2. Find guided angel meditations online. This is a great way to begin opening yourself up to the angelic realm, and is especially powerful if you are a more visual person.

3. Relax! The speaker last night was having some trouble becoming an open channel. She was understandably nervous in front of many people and those nerves overrode her gift for some time. When you begin this, keep it personal. I wouldn’t try to read as many people as possible or offer readings until you are very comfortable. When you are by yourself attempting to channel, remain open, relaxed, and breathe out tension.

Yes I am a day late, but hooray for spring! Although this was a milder than normal winter where I live, I am blissfully happy taking in the blooming plants around me. The weather has been very warm lately, and I have relished going for afternoon walks. Life begins to open up again in the spring. Take in the beauty of each day and enjoy the coming of sunshine, warm weather, and blossoming!

Did you do anything to welcome in spring yesterday?

I have fallen in love all over again with ginger tea! I love its spiciness and strong flavor. I like to steep it for as long as possible to make the tea fragrant, spicy, and delicious. My stomach was upset today, and this tea soothed it perfectly. Even if you are feeling perfectly well, ginger tea is a treat.

You can either buy some in a tea bag

Or brew some yourself with water, ginger root, lemon slices, and honey.

I love animals, and I also love watching them in their natural habitats. Frozen Planet aired on Sunday night and I spent two hours in heaven. The beauty of our planet never fails to take my breath away and it makes me feel so peaceful to watch nature, even on a television. Because words, as much as I love them, cannot describe the beauty I saw on Sunday night, here are some images taken from the show. Frozen Planet is a mini-series and will air on the Discovery Channel for the next three weeks.

These captured images are so amazing to see. I applaud the makers of these documentaries not only for the hard work and patience it takes to get these shots, but also for the fact that watching our beautiful planet inspires us to take better care of it!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Although I am half Irish (and I look very Irish: red hair, fair skin, and blue eyes), I have never felt particularly tied to my roots. I believe it is because I am adopted and I am constantly surrounded by people who look nothing like me, and don’t have a touch of Irish in them. In fact, my sister is adopted from China. Nationality, or feeling tied to a certain piece of land and culture, is not a part of my life and I often feel like a person without roots. I am making corned beef and cabbage tonight, but it is not to celebrate a heritage I feel tied to, only to enjoy a classic meal.

There is the saying, “Everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.” This saying, which often is an excuse to drink lots of Guinness, goes a little deeper perhaps. Yes, it is important to have roots and to know your heritage. Culture is an identifier and helps people know who they are. But truly we are all one no matter where we are from, what holidays we celebrate, and what traditions we have grown up with. We are all Irish, and Italian, and Japanese, and every other nationality you can think of. We are not separate individuals living isolated lives. Although it is easy to forget, we are all the same. My sadness at not having roots or feeling a sense of pride in a country is actually a gift because I feel tied to everyone.
