For the last year, feathers have been a symbol I have looked for when I needed a sign. Once I even came upon a dumpster full of feathers and angel wings, but that is a story for another time.

Yesterday after a particularly stressful morning, I came upon a pink feather in a parking lot. It was such a message of hope, healing, and the presence of angels that I immediately felt loved and supported.

Later in the day, I was sitting at the kitchen table on my computer and heard a thud. I sat up immediately and saw a small yellow bird sitting on my deck, obviously stunned after hitting the door. While I was worried about him, I also saw that he had left two small yellow feathers. Soon after, he blinked a few times and flew away. Although I did not want any harm to come to this creature, I also thanked him for leaving me the gift of his yellow feathers.

The specific color of the feather you find also has great meaning. Here is a great website listing feather meanings.

I love doing an oracle card reading for myself when I am facing a particular issue, or even when I just want to know the energy trends surrounding me. This morning after a peaceful meditation, I pulled cards from the Angel Answers deck by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine.

IMG_0485The cards I got were: Big, happy Changes, It’s Up to You, Success, Helpful People, Yes, and Ask for Help from Others. When I pull cards for myself, I also believe that they are world energies. The cards in my reading also apply to anyone who might be reading this blog post.

Basically, have hope, you will be successful, ask for and accept the help that comes to you because nothing big is accomplished in isolation. And remember, it’s up to you! You have free will on this journey through life. What do you want most? What is your soul calling for you to do, be, or become? You can do it!

Happy Sunday Everyone!

I have often written about journaling on this blog. However, I have recently transitioned to automatic writing for about 20 minutes every morning. This has allowed me to tap into a higher guidance system. Rather than writing about problems or fears I am having, I pose a question, connect with my higher self, and allow myself to write down the wisdom that comes to me. I have found this to be both empowering and healing, as it allows me to step out of my day-to-day story and into a higher perspective.


This morning I sat in my meditation corner, listening to healing music, wrapped in a cozy blanket. I had trouble sleeping last night because a lot was on my mind. A project I am involved in is taking longer than I had hoped to get off the ground, and there is a lot up in the air. Instead of harping on this story, I wrote this:

What is the potential for you, if you were able to see the future as something that could be known–that there are many probable future destinations. You have the power to choose which outcome you would most like to see. The outcome you would like should be focused on solely for it to come into physical manifestation. You can draw pictures, create a vision board, and ask to see this for the highest good. When you think of how to serve others, your power increases significantly. It you were to focus on numbers and money, people would sense your fear and stay far away. But, when you focus on service and affirm that you will receive more than enough to meet your needs, all will be done in Divine Timing.

Much more empowering than a whiny journal entry about money!

If you happen to be in the area, I’m giving a workshop on Intuitive Journaling at Terraloka Wellness in Kent, CT on October 11th. Comment below if you’d like to join!

It has been almost exactly a year since I last posted on SpiritualiTea. Although there have been many changes, my overall mission has remained the same: to offer a warm, safe space to explore spirituality (with tea).

What has been going on for me? Well, I became a life coach (yay!), began doing professional intuitive readings, left my job…more on that in a later post. I’m currently living life on my terms and have never felt happier, or more inspired! I began creating other blogs that I thought would perhaps express my new self, but in the end I’ve come back to SpiritualiTea as my home.

I’m excited to begin posting here again with a new voice and renewed passion.

There will be book suggestions, helpful resources, musings on my own spiritual life, and of course tea!

I also have a new feature: I will soon be venturing into the video podcasting world, and I hope to take you along with me! Each week I will post a new video providing an intuitive reading for the coming week’s energies. Grab a cup of tea and sit down with me on Sunday morning to find out what the week will bring for you.

Finally, I have two exciting offerings: the first is an online course that trains you to be a SpiritualiTea Facilitator in your community. Learn how to start a group, keep it going, gain members, find friends, and make a little extra money along the way!

Second, I am offering private intuitive readings by phone or Skype. I would love to get to know you and offer clear, accurate, empowering guidance on any challenges you are currently facing.

It feels good to be back.

Each talent, each passion we have or pursue is an addition to our overall understanding of who we are. I was considering today all of the things that I love to do, but do not consider myself an expert in. I refrain from labeling myself a “writer” because I have not written a book. My fiance refrains from calling himself a musician because, despite an undying love for music, he has never learned how to play an instrument. What if we took away the qualifications that society asks us to have in order to be called something, and just looked into our hearts. What would you be? Despite not having any certificates or degrees in these areas, in my heart I am a writer, an intuitive, and a counselor. In the areas where I do have degrees (teaching, English) the job I do does not seem to match what my heart yearns for. In my heart I am a teacher, but not of English. While I am thankful for my job, I still feel moved to pursue the roles of my heart rather than fulfill the roles set down on paper. I know that as I clarify the callings of my heart, the external world will more closely reflect what I already feel internally.

“Don’t find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain.” – Henry Ford

What are your daily interactions with your coworkers like? Do you normally focus conversation on the negative or positive aspects of your job? Do you talk about deeper, personal matters? Recently I began to experiment with being more mindful of how I interact with my coworkers, not to necessarily change anything, but just to notice. The amount of complaining we partake in is absolutely astounding. Of course, I understand that there are probably legitimate problems behind the complaints, yet it seems to be fruitless to harp on the same issues again and again. Sometimes complaining seems to be used as a bonding method with other people, or to “vent” pent up frustration and anger. I wonder, though, what we could do both personally and professionally if the time and energy spent complaining was transmuted into something positive? If you do not like your job, could you transform the energy used to complain into figuring out how achieve a higher degree, certification, or begin your own business? How could you reform your complaints into an open dialogue about legitimate concerns you have in your company in order to catalyze change? Part of the struggle is knowing how and when to avoid the vicious cycle of complaint. Maybe you avoid after-work happy hours where you know this type of conversation would be flowing, or when someone begins to complain you politely change the subject. Next Monday begin to practice being mindful of your interactions and truly consider which ones are based on complaints and which feel deeper and more authentic. Just watch, try not to judge, and then slowly transform that energy into something proactive and useful.
