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.

Peace,
Shannon

I recently bought detoxifying tea from Traditional Medicinals. It’s delicious! I have it in the middle of the day right after lunch. The box recommends having it two-three times per day, but right now I’m happy with having it just once. It’s a strong flavor and I like to have it with a meal.

Cookies are crowding my counters and candy is bursting from cabinets. There are a lot of sweets (and apparently alliteration) around me today. My plan last week was to do a gentle detox during this week after Christmas. However, with so many tempting treats only feet away from me, this plan is not going very well. I have decided, therefore, to do a mini-detox for three days. Instead of cutting out sweets altogether, I will have a pretty flexible schedule that will go something like this:

Breakfast: Smoothie or Oatmeal with green tea

Snack: Fruit

Lunch: Light soup

Snack: Tea and fruit

Dinner-Light and vegetarian

Dessert-Cookies!!

(Is this still a detox? Hope so…)

In addition to the eating plan I will be meditating twice a day, going for a walk, and taking a hot bath before bed as well as writing in a journal. ┬áDuring these last few days of 2011 I’d like to find some quiet and closure. In years past I’d rush through the new year, barely remembering that the date changed. This year I’d like to focus on both the end and the beginning of something new. Being able to clear my system both physically and mentally feels like a great way to end peacefully and start fresh.

If you like the idea of detoxing but want to start small, maybe begin by taking a walk outside for half an hour each day, writing in a journal, or sitting peacefully surrounded by candlelight. Clearing out invites more in. Watch your feelings surrounding the new year. Are you resistant? Do you want to just get 2011 over with? Let these emotions rise up and out of you so that you can approach 2012 with more clarity, energy, and mindfulness.
