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.

Roses are a beautiful symbol of love and are wonderful to receive on Valentine’s Day (or on any day for that matter)! Beyond the material symbols of love, though, Valentine’s Day is a great time to stop and ask ourselves about the amount and quality of love in our lives. Are we giving the love that others deserve? Are we receiving the love we deserve?

Fully receiving love is often harder than giving love. We feel protected and secure if we can be the “givers.” Taking in love would mean accepting that we are fully good, which sometimes goes against our everyday concept of ourselves. Today, I ask you to notice if and how you receive love into your heart. I notice that I often brush off compliments, don’t take the time to mindfully process the words “I love you,” and felt for a long time like no one fully loved me. I realize now how important it is to accept love into your life without judgment or resistance. Give love to someone today, and also receive it openly and willingly.

In honor of tomorrow being Valentine’s Day, I thought I would share my favorite crystal: rose quartz. I love the delicate pink color of this stone, and it is perfect for opening the heart chakra. According to Yogamint, “Rose quartz is ruled by the planet Venus and is associated with mysticism, beauty, romance and love. Use rose quartz for matters of the heart—it is also known to enhance creativity through compassion, forgiveness and love. There is nothing like the power of rose quartz to bring romance and harmony into a relationship. If you are looking for romance, you can be sure that Cupid’s arrow will be tipped with the very special and powerful rose quartz.” Read more about rose quartz here at Yogamint .

Try wearing rose quartz tomorrow or carrying around a stone. Give openly from your heart and notice whether or not this is easier to do with the rose quartz. If you have any jewelry which contains rose quartz, put it on display for Valentine’s Day! I am coveting this bracelet from Penny Weights. Maybe for Valentine’s Day?
