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.

If you read my recent posts about assuming my own power and taking a position of leadership, you’ll remember that I’ve been focusing my energy on this recently. While I am a leader by my true nature, I often feel more comfortable taking a backseat and letting others make all the decisions. However, I’ve been feeling called to assume my own form of leadership based on a new understanding of its definition: as one who leads with love, consciousness, and awareness of others. As soon as I said yes to this calling I was tested.

There was recently a conflict in the spiritual group I lead and, although momentary, it had a deep effect on the energy of the group and on me. I let it go in that moment because I was unsure how to handle it. I had created a group for positivity, not for conflict! However, I learned so much from this situation. For the past few days I was beating myself up about not confronting the person who had created the conflict, and I worried about what my other group members thought of me. I realize, though, that my number one goal is to let everyone feel like they are in a safe environment, and I must maintain that even if I have to do something that is uncomfortable for me, namely confronting someone about their behavior. While this is difficult, I know that putting my feelings on the table honestly and respectfully will help maintain the integrity of my group and teach me a lesson about how to lead with my heart.

If you read my post on dreaming a few days ago you would have seen that I was having very intense, violent dreams of being attacked by animals. Last night I also had the recurring animal theme appear. I had a dream that I was driving through an African savannah and right in front of me stepped a gigantic cheetah (yes, a cheetah again)! It looked at me peacefully and just stared straight into my eyes as if it were asking me to emulate its own demeanor. Fast forward and I’m inside a sanctuary at what I have now come to find out is an animal preserve. There is an elephant in the sanctuary, but it is hiding and does not want to be seen by me. Then the dream ends.

After looking up animal symbolism I found that elephants represent power and sovereignty. Ironically, my elephant was hiding. The cheetah once more had great power behind it, but it was a peaceful power. I feel, once more, that I am being called to step into the role of a leader, which is terrifying to me as I’ve said. I’ve decided to check out The Soul of Leadership: Unlocking Your Potential for Greatness by Deepak Chopra from my local library.

After reading some excerpts from Amazon, I fell in love with the way Chopra defines leadership: “The inspired leader’s power base comes not from other people but from her very being, and the path she walks is guided by her own soul. Its hallmarks are creativity, intelligence, organizing power, and love.”  It feels perfectly right for me. I have always connected the idea of “leadership” with the idea of being power-hungry, ruthless, and conniving. What a cynical definition I had! I am so thankful to be opened up to this new understanding of how to be a leader and I will continue to work on becoming more of a leader in my own capacity.
