Camino Gratitude

rose-266785_1280.jpg

As you may have heard me say before: I intended to walk the Camino alone.  I did this, but not really.  And I am grateful for everyone who took the walk with me emotionally, spiritually, and physically.  I would like to acknowledge them here.

My Inspiration

First, I would like to thank Goldie Matthew.  I first learned of the Camino at her Motivational Movie Night, when I saw Walking the Camino: 6 Ways to Santiago for the first time. (The seed was planted!)

Father Don Elias

I also want to thank the priest, Father Don Elias, who revived the Camino and whose yellow arrows guided me so perfectly all the way to Santiago.

My Family

I am also grateful for my family, who supported me immediately from vision through completion to readjusting to normal life!  My fiancee made sure I checked in every day and gave me a perfect welcome home. My dad was immediately excited for me and offered me some travel gear to help me on my journey.  My sister helped take care of our pets while I was gone, supported me financially in some of my travel costs, and helped me download Relaxercise, which saved my feet from tendonitis and any other possible foot ills!  My mom bought me the two guide books that helped me set the perfect foundation for a successful trip, as well as my amazing hiking boots, sleeping gear, and other odds and ends.  It was truly a group effort!

My Grandmothers

Next I would like to thank my grandmothers!  My Ukrainian grandmother prayed the “Little Flower Novena” for me every day, followed my travels on a map from town to town, and told me to watch for roses (which I saw EVERY day!)  My grandmother-in-law encouraged me with her Facebook comments on my trip updates.  My Illinois grandmother sent me off with the most beautiful, loving phone message that touched me and made me cry.

The Pilgrims

I am so grateful for the many people I met along the way, some who I met in passing — some who I’m still connected to!  I met people from Mexico, Argentina, Puerto Rico, many parts of the U.S., Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England, Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Tunisia, South Korea, China, Norway, Sweden, Slovenia, Poland, Lithuania, Belgium, Denmark, the Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand! (And I’m probably missing some!)

Though I needed my solitude, it would have been incredibly challenging for me to have walked the whole way alone.  I am grateful to those who shared dinner with me, albergues with me, part of the Way with me, or even just a “Buen Camino!” with me!

My Home Community

The outpouring of support I received from the community back home was unbelievable, and I was amazed by how powerful and pivotal that encouragement was for me. Some supported me through texts, some through social media.  I posted updates on Facebook maybe 15 times, and the amount of loving, supportive comments I received was staggering.  I am truly grateful to anyone who was a part of this journey, on any level.

My Spiritual Community

I would be remiss if I did not give thanks to those in the spiritual realm who were with me every step of the way.  Of course, I give thanks to Source, the Creator of all (including me, Spain, and the Camino!)  I thank the angels and spirit guides who keep me safe, nudge me with guidance and teachings, and who support and unconditionally love me through every little detail.  (May I learn to love as you do!)

I give thanks again to everyone mentioned here, to anyone I may have missed, and to you readers, who have also been a part of my journey.  Your love and support means more to me than you could ever know.

Love, light, and blessings. ❤

Angel Messages: 1’s and 8’s

dollar-499481_1920

It’s been a week of 1’s and 8’s.  It started with my wonderful car hitting the 180,000 mile mark.  (Come on, baby!  Let’s go 5 more years!)  And then popped up on the clock, the mini-odometer, a school bus, etc.

Out pops the Angel Numbers 101 book by Doreen Virtue, my handy dandy little translator.  Here are some of the messages:

18– Your thoughts are the valve that opens and shuts your financial flow.  As you stay positive, all the material resources you need come to you easily.  However, worry can stop the flow, so ask your angel to help you stay upbeat, especially where it concerns money.

118– Your positive thoughts about money have opened the doors to increased financial flow.  Stay optimistic, because it’s working!

108– Your positive thoughts and prayerful connection with God’s infinite love have yielded an unending flow of abundance for you.

It all matches perfectly with my “Prosperity and Abundance” intuitive report.  I enjoy experiencing how everything, EVERYTHING is connected.

Much love and many blessings. ❤

 

Connecting with the Angels: A Little Encouragement

heart-1078771_1920.jpg

This blog is much like me,  “morphing”! (I love that word I just heard from Tonya Dawn Recla!)

I dabbled in many topics today, as I prepared what to share with you today.  I settled on another angel conversation.

Dear Source/ Angels/ Inner Self:

It feels very hard right now. I am retreating from the onslaught of activity I have involved myself in, especially networking groups. I feel like I may be isolating myself. And I am working through a surprise financial disappointment from yesterday. Also . . . I think the combination of gray skies and semi-cold and my pulled shoulder muscle are all getting to me. I could use some encouragement. Please help.

My dear one. You are loved. We are here to protect you. You have been here before. You know this. We are always with you to protect you and love you. Do not lose hope. Stay with yourself. Believe in yourself and be confident. You don’t have to seek confidence from outside yourself. Those tools are useful, but you have it always within you. You are loved very, very much. That is enough. Remember that you are loved very, very much. Don’t be afraid. We go before you always.

I am worried about my loved one. I love him very much. This transition is a challenge. Can you offer any wisdom/advice in this?

Let go. This is his journey. Love him, send him light.

Angels, do you have any messages you would like to share today?

Yes. You are blessed.

Much love and many blessings to you all! ❤

Connecting with the Angels: First Conversation

hands-1947915_1920

I’ve been meaning to start this for some time.  Finally doing it!  I am creating a space for angelic messages.  I am new to this.  Some of this may be coming more from me, some of this may be more from the angels — or perhaps it is both of us simultaneously.  Either way, I wish to be a conduit of love and light.

Last week I received the kick I needed to get started on this.  I received an intuitive health analysis, and in my last question I finally got up the gumption to ask about angels.  This is the transcription:

Conductor: This one asks for any suggestions in connecting with angels.

Receiver: We see this one does have a good rapport and is able to connect with them.  We see that there is communications occurring.  Most of which — these communications are apparent is when there are coincidences that appear for this one or when there are times when this one has to take a second look or stop the self, as there is something more to pay attention to.  Most of the time that is when the angels are present, when experiences occur that are coincidental, as this one would see it, or where there are clear signs, whether they are physical signs or someone saying something that seems different.  These are most of the times that the angels are communicating with this one. We see for this one, in order to continue the rapport, this one can write to the angels.  This one can easily just speak with them, and they will immediately respond.  The response feels as if this one is talking to the self.  It is mainly because this one has built such a strong connection with them that this one’s vibration and their vibration are immersed, and therefore at times this one confuses their vibration with hers, and this is where this one may not always know this one is communicating with the angels. However, this one is.

Here is our first official conversation in this series!  Enjoy. 🙂

Dear Angels:

Me: What would you like me to share today?

Angels: We are with you, and now you know. We rejoice at this. Let your mind go still. Take in what’s around you and what we have to say. We have waited a long time for this. Now you see that your thoughts are not bad things. Just notice. Just notice them. Soon you will know the difference between what is us and what is your identity “you.”

We are here. We are here with you always. Spread the word about us. We are here to help. We want to help you. We want to help humanity. Do not be afraid of what you might say here, what is you and what isn’t you. Your intentions are pure. Your message will serve.

Me: I feel my head buzzing!

Angels: We are here with you! What would you like us to talk about?

Me: Karma? About how there is no “right” and “wrong.” How can we better understand this?

Angels: You are not fully paying attention right now. You are thinking about the title of this series.

Me: Sorry.

Angels: Tell them what you know, Teri. Start there.

Me: I have learned that “right” and “wrong” comes from perception. We must look to our intentions and what is in our heart and do our part. The rest we must respect. Everyone has her own journey to fulfill.

Angels: Very good. That is all for today.

Much love, and many blessings. ❤

A Spirit Guide Message

https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51Xk3RNYAuL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

For a long time now I’ve been wanting to connect with my angels and spirit guides.  I see angel numbers almost daily, and I use angel cards at least weekly, but I’d often like to connect more intimately.  The post is inspired by a Facebook post I saw back in December.  A friend had posted a picture of a pile of books she had read, and the top one caught my eye: Let Your Spirit Guides Speak.

In this book Debra Landwehr Engle helps you develop a relationship with your guides, and part of what she shares comes from her writing guide “Ella.”  The very first question she asked was: “Ella, what is spiritual guidance?”  The response was so powerful I knew I’d want to frequently revisit it, and I share part of it here with you:

As you know from your own experience, we can tell you whether to turn right or left, where to go next, what to do on your to do list, who to talk to, and what to say.  We are intimately involved with those serendipitous events that you attribute to the universe, and the God moments in which there’s a flash of knowledge or peace that passeth understanding.  What we want to get across is that truly we are here with you always, and while you may not always feel our presence directly, that doesn’t mean we aren’t here.

If the communication is blocked, it’s never because we have blocked it.  It is always fear that stands in the way, and it is healing the fear that opens the lines of communication.  As your friend once said, “Now we can really get things done!”

We are eager to work with you as direct partners, and we honor you.  You are not lesser than us.  You are not lower beings.  You are, in fact, courageous souls who are navigating the Earth plane and all the human emotions of fear that can make your experience seem so fretful and challenging and sad.  We honor all these experiences and the growth they can bring.  And at the same time, we are here to help you have more joy and abundance in you life, more ease, because your life experience does not require struggle or pain.

The more you work with us, the easier your life may become.  Not because you won’t still have challenges, but because together we can help you see them in new ways and heal from them faster.  We can instill in you a sense of purpose that makes it exciting to wake up in the morning.  We can pave the way for our days to be easier and more abundant and filled with joy by helping you make decisions that can life you up and traverse obstacles.  We can help you experience your human life as an adventure . . . a chance to explore other worlds, other cultures, without judgement or expectations that can make you miserable or feel cheated.

This is what we are here for with every one of you.

Much love, many blessings. ❤

7 Ways I’m Improving My “Inner Ear”

angel-428077_1920

I heard the most beautiful message from Cindy Sommer today.  She talked about how we are always connected, that our divine switch is always on; it is distractions that keep us from “hearing” what we need to know.

I strongly desire to be aligned with my true Self and with higher guidance.  Since I do not always feel as connected with my inner self as I would like to be, I am making some changes to improve my experience

1. I am developing the elements of my morning routine.

I have been exercising nearly daily, putting on my “Work Out” Playlist and getting my groove on for the days when I do not dance Zumba or swim.  I’ve been meditating almost daily, and I have finally added the candle concentration exercise back into my day.  Journaling and blogging — though sporadic — are getting closer to a daily practice.

2. I am reclaiming my will power.

Twice this past week I woke up with the alarm — no snooze!  I discovered that one snooze opens the floodgates.  I made the decision today that I can get up any time before the alarm goes off, but the alarm is my final buzzer.  Building this trust in my self helps me develop trust in my ability to connect with my inner self. I am also slowly cutting back on unhealthy foods.  A cluttered body means a cluttered connection! I binge ate a ton of Christmas cookies, chocolates, and flavored popcorn this past week (all Christmas gifts!), and it is all finally gone.  If anything else comes in, I will bring it in to work!

3. I’m seeking guidance.

I have a life coach who is very intuitive and spiritually connected.  I am also going through my third read-through of Creating a Bug Free Mind by Andy Shaw. (I plan to listen to it a total of 5 times, as suggested.)  Besides working with my mind, I am taking physical action steps through working with local business owners to build my coaching business.  I’m also still receiving training from the Life Mastery Institute and plan to get caught up on the trainings from Brendon Burchard.

4. I’m seeking “higher” guidance.

I continue to pay attention to my dreams.  They are a wonderful indicator of where my attention has been the past week.  I’m using angel cards and looking for angel numbers.  I pay attention to synchronicities, “hunches,” and messages.  And I love when these different modalities/areas match up with each other!  Just a few days ago I had a very persistent fly in my home office.  Besides being an oddity in 6 degree winter weather, the fly was very noisy and obnoxious, flying right across my face and later landing on my head during one of my coaching sessions.  At the end of the night, as I was walking out of the room with my laptop in my hands, I looked down and was surprised to find the fly planted on the corner of my computer with no intention of moving.  I blew at it multiple times in the face, and . . . nothing.  After I posted about it on Facebook, a random comment inspired me to Google “fly symbolism”, and I found the message I knew was for me (matching 2 different cards I’d picked that week with identical messages!):

“Let go of old self doubts and self defeating habits. Know that your dreams are within your reach – you deserve it!” — Fly

(Thank you, Fly!)

5. I’m learning to surrender.

This has been the least fun of my steps, but I believe it is the most important.  I know that it is the only way to internal happiness.  I must “die daily,” surrendering my ego to my higher Self.  This means humility.  This means faith.  This means trust.  This means setting intentions and goals but being willing to scrap it all at a moment’s notice for the highest good.

“Man plans, God laughs.” — Yiddish proverb.

At a recent vendor fair I sat down with numerologist, Philip Clark, and it was a wonderful experience. However, I was stunned when he told me one of my birth angels was the Angel of Obedience!  I wish I could’ve gotten a photo of my facial reaction!  Besides feeling repulsed at the idea,  I was puzzled — I have been a fairly obedient individual most of my life — sometimes even too obedient!  However, recently this came back to my attention, and I realized that it refers to the obedience to my inner Self and to Source.  I have a big mission this lifetime.  Only pieces of it are clear, but I know that to fulfill it I will need patience and to trust in divine guidance.

6. I’m learning gratitude.

You attract what you are, what you think, and where your attention lies.  Up until now, I struggle with a “lack” mentality, and I recognize that the cure is gratitude.  If I am grateful for plentitude, thinking about blessings, putting my attention on all the gifts I have received, I attract more of the same.  If I desire a deeper connection, I can be grateful for all of the times I have been aware of that connection.

7. I’m teaching.

Choosing coaching as speaking as my life path, I will forever be a teacher.  Being still and allowing the lessons to come through me allows me to help others connect to Source and to their own inner wisdom.  Often I reflect on what I’ve just shared and think — Wow!  I could use that advice, too!

Are you practicing any of these?  I would love your feedback!  Have a wonderful weekend.  Much love, many blessings.  ❤

5 Wisdom Cards, Claircognizance, and Learning Obedience and Trust

I am experimenting with my claircognizance.  For now I am only intentionally using it to pick the correct wisdom deck and appropriate cards, but I’d like to expand that to events throughout that day.

I’ve mentioned before that there are 4 clairs, different psychic abilities — at least there are 4 that I’ve heard of.  They are clairsentience, claircognizance, clairvoyance, and clairaudience.  Doreen Virtue tells us that we have the potential for all 4, but there are some that we’ve either developed more or tapped more than others.

I always thought clairsentience was my strongest and the one that I should depend on the most.  I am a very sensitive person and have very strong feelings and emotions.  However, I have found that my feelings can be very misleading.  I sometimes misinterpret my emotions, and this leads to poor decision-making.  So, in the past week I’ve looked into “just knowing” things.  I know I’ve used this almost unconsciously in teaching and coaching, and I’m thrilled at the resonance I’ve found with using it for readings from the angels, Ascended Masters, etc, and my inner self.

#1

the-dreamer-card

This is the card that began last week’s journey: “The Dreamer.”  It is so beautiful that the last card I’d picked before this for myself was “Dreams” (mentioned in my previous blog post).  Clearly there is a common theme here!  I picked this card in answer to the question: “What guidance do you have for me today?”  Very open-ended, right?  Dreams have been a theme in my life, before I even realized it, and I was thrilled to receive this card.

#2 The second time I drew this past week I asked for guidance on the first card: How can I achieve my dream? Advice on this, please!  And this time, I received this fantastic card:

focused-intention-cardIt makes perfect sense!  Clarity, focused intention.  Keep your attention on your dream, and make it happen!  I have begun to be more intentional in my life in general.  Today in the coaching call with my coach, Jacque, this same thought came up again.

#3 This card threw me off at first:

fertility-card

The card is “Fertility!”  (I am not planning on having children anytime soon!)  However, I knew there was likely a deeper meaning.  I received this card in response to a question about a piece of my dream.  During my first training as a Life Mastery Consultant I had received a very high (for me!) amount in my head for a yearly salary.  I was so out of vibration with the amount that I began to feel mildly ill, in my mind and even in my body!  I didn’t understand why this amount had come to me, and so I asked about it.  I knew from reading the card’s description (in the deck booklet) that the message was to allow myself the plentitude (abundance!) to create my dream and to live out my purpose.  A scary thought, but a lovely one.

#4 and #5

patience-cards

These two cards were very painful.  (Sometimes I don’t like to wait!)  I was drawn to 2 different decks and was awed that I received the same message from both decks.  My question was about a new branch of coaching that has not yet come to fruition.  I had been receiving positive signs from the angels about it, but I wanted to check in again to be sure.  The message is clear.  Divine timing is at play here.  Maybe I am not ready.  Maybe the organization is not quite ready.  (or both!) But stick with it, be patient and wait.

I received a similar message this morning when working with my coach.  I wanted to learn more about receiving and why it was sometimes a challenge for me.  She asked me to check in with my inner self, and the answer I got was that it was not time to explore this yet.  This was very frustrating to me!  Tears came to my eyes, and I instantly felt like a petulant child.  How could this not be in my best interest? Wouldn’t this help me be successful?  She then actually used the analogy of a child for me.  I could even see it.  There are things that we — not omniscient and not omnipresent souls, young beings limited by our senses on the physical plane — may not understand yet.  We can do damage to ourselves by messing with things outside their timing, just as children can harm themselves when exploring things that they cannot yet understand.

So, this is the beginning of my obedience, obedience to my inner self.  This week has been a challenging one for me, every day my ego sneaking in and wreaking havoc with my emotions until I realize it was ego all along and surrendering it all once again!  I encourage you to surround yourself with supportive teachers (spirit, people, and also recordings of great people!)  They have encouraged me and straightened me out when I feel “lost”!

Much love, many blessings. ❤
