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

Wishing you a beautiful, miracle-filled, joyful 2013!

2013 holds big changes for me. I am opening my own space for SpiritualiTea! While I used to hold monthly meetings in someone else’s office, I am now holding weekly workshops, meditations, and poetry groups in my own space. As I step out and expand my business, I am feeling a range of emotions: excited, terrified, overwhelmed, hopeful…The list could be endless, and I find myself feeling one way one moment, and another the next. Questions loom over me: what if I fail? Who am I to open a center like this? Why would anyone want to listen to me?

When I feel these doubts creeping up on me, I sit down and quietly empty my mind. Who am I not to be successful? Who am I not to ¬†speak out about a topic I am passionate about? I am free-falling, I’ve thrust myself over the edge of a precipice I have only toyed with in the past. But I realize I like this person who is willing to take risks, to leap, to face fear, much more than the person who used to hide from life. I will be new in 2013. I am not who I was in many ways, though perhaps I have just shed some layers, peeled back the heavy coat of anxiety, so that I can be seen by myself and others.

I hope that in the new year you will challenge yourself on a daily basis. Question your thoughts. Make peace. Express yourself. Now is not the time to hang back in fear. Now is the time to unveil your truest self, despite the fear, despite the doubts and worries. Who will you be in 2013? Make it big. Make it wonderful.

Where are you going to be at midnight tomorrow? In making plans it is easy to feel pulled to go to an acquaintance’s party or to a restaurant with 50 of your closest friends. New Year’s Eve is one of those nights many people often build up in their heads as the perfect evening, complete with champagne and someone to kiss as the clock strikes 12. Two years ago I let go of this fantasy and decided that it was time I chose how to spend New Year’s Eve without letting others’ opinions influence me. (Of course, I also spent that night at my fiance’s hospital bed, but that’s a story for a different time). I am quite a homebody and I prefer not to go anywhere. Making this choice is an act of self-care and self-love because I am acknowledging my needs and recognizing that I deserve to have them met. This year, I’ll be cooking a nice meal, sharing a bottle of wine, and watching the ball drop in the comfort of my own home.

This is me dreamily contemplating my ideal New Year’s location last year at a restaurant. Close but no cigar…

Where would you be happiest spending your New Year’s Eve this year? If you are in the habit of sacrificing what you want for others, instead start off this year in both a mental and physical place thinking, there is no place else I’d rather be!

Wherever you choose to be, try this year to be mindful of releasing the old and receiving the new. Because I will be home, I am planning a ritual which I will hopefully instill in following years as well. I am making three lists: one for the challenges I faced in 2011, one for the accomplishments, and one as kind of a mini-bucket list for 2012. I hope that reviewing the year in this way will give me closure, allow me to celebrate, and also plan everything I want for the next year.

What rituals do you have on New Year’s Eve?¬†
