Connecting with the Angels: First Conversation


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 Beautiful Day


I’ve been looking for joy, and I found it today!  It was a wonderful day today.  I started with concentration and meditation exercises.  Then I went to the Y to swim, followed by a super hot shower and a few minutes in the sauna.  As I drove home, I listed all the things I was grateful for.  Then I headed over to see my mom and sis and we cooked up some food, listened to some metaphysical goodness and did some visioning homework.  We also did some goofy dancing and, my sister and I ended our visit with singing a few harmonized duets together. (“Come What May” from Moulin Rouge, “I Still Believe” from Miss Saigon, and “We Make a Beautiful Pair” from Shenandoah.  Then I headed over to the School of Metaphysics.  I had a pleasant, long talk with the director and then borrowed some audio recordings of some more awesome metaphysical content from one of my classmates.  (We plan on getting together to work on the study course together.)  Then, I attended the last class of the Spiritual Ethics course, led the Healing Service for the week, and had a jam session with the director and my dad in preparation for the Universal Hour of Peace on December 31st at the school. On my way home I listened to some of my more recent intuitive reports.   All in all a truly wonderful day.  I can’t wait to see what I dream about tonight.  (And, subconscious mind, PLEASE give me something that I can understand.  Seriously.)

Wishing you all a wonderfully, joyous week! ❤

Photo explanation: This was my creation for the day, my artsy outfit. (It looks a little better in person.) What’s fun about this is that every piece has a little story. I’ve had my glasses for around 5 years. (Thankfully, my vision hasn’t changed much.) One of the earpieces is chewed away from when Bowser was still in his chewing phase. The scarf is a recent purchase from Clothes Mentor, a resale shop near my house, after I first started changing my look to more of a Type 1 from Dressing Your Truth. The turtleneck is a Kohl’s purchase when I was looking for some simple backup tops for teaching. The necklace is Lia Sophia that I won at one of my friends’ parties. The purple frilled vest is a recent gift from one of my Metaphysics students after she noticed my wardrobe shift. The skirt is a purchase from a visit to Maplewood, Missouri during an SOM teacher’s conference. One of the girls had forgotten her teacher’s skirt, so we went walking to the nearby clothing shops together before the first meeting started, and we each purchased a skirt. The bright pink tights are from when I was in a Back Street Boys 80’s dance with other teachers from the elementary school where I used to work. The socks are. . . just regular socks. I think I ordered them on Amazon. And the shoes are ones that I was recently reunited with when my Mom was cleaning out her things. (They are so cute and perfectly snug around my narrow feet! Such a happy reunion. <3)

Belated Friday Fun Day: Affirmation Poem — Who I Do & Do Not Want to Be

I want to be with people

I want to know lots and lots and lots of people!

I see myself laughing and conversing easily with them.

I am confident.  Strong posture, open stance.  Powerful, in a comfortable, welcoming way.

I care about them and remember the things that are important to them and their lives.

I spend time with them.

I am fully present with them.

They are all that matters in those moments.

We connect.

I am a healing presence.

People feel safe with me.

People feel at home with me.

When people are with me, they remember that they are loved — They are washed in love!

They remember that the universe supports them.

All they have to do is be who they are.


I will no longer be afraid.

I will no longer be self-conscious or insecure.

I will no longer worry about what I’m wearing or how I sound

or what facial expression I’m making.

I will not be full of nervous energy!

I will get things done.

I will not revert to helplessness.

I will complete on my own, take initiative, even in asking for help.


I organize events.

I bring people together.

We do fun things.

We do new things!

I am full of love, excited energy, and peace . . .


I am organized

I am comfortable in my own skin.

I take risks!

I make “mistakes”!

And I laugh and learn.

I learn from EVERYTHING!


I will not avoid out of fear.

I will not procrastinate out of fear.


I will see the world as my laboratory,

as my playhouse,

as my stage,

as my mission,

as my life’s work.


I will leave the world better than when I left it.

I will do what I’ve come here to do.

On top of the world

Understanding what it all means

In the moment



At Peace


At war within



Lost in my head

Confused and scattered

At the bottom of the pit


In just one day!

Summary Saturday/Sunday: Walking the Tightrope

Lately I’m walking a tightrope.  I guess it could be seen as duality.

Optimism vs. Pessimism

Perfection vs. Satisfactory

Drama vs. Objectivity

Panic vs. Peace

Frustration/Fury vs. Acceptance of What Is

I’m teetering on the “vs.”  I’d rather swing to the better side of things!

Simple Pleasures

I’ve been struggling quite a bit with changes in my life and trying to visualize how I want things to be (even last night I was practically falling asleep during my visualization exercise).  In the meantime I’m trying to find enjoyment in the present moments as I can.  Here are  15 highlights from last week:

  • I accidentally left my hair down at work because I left my ponytail holder in the car, forgetting to grab it after I meditated.  It actually turned out just fine.  My hair didn’t get in my way, and I gloried in my femininity, enjoying the movie star effect every time I walked by a big fan, as my hair swirled up behind me.
  • I got to ride in a warehouse cart.  Work was making some kind of system change and had us reapply for direct deposit.  One of the managers was rounding up people and taking them from the warehouse to the office, and since I was first, I got a quick buggy ride.  What a rush!  Same day as my hair being down, so again, I felt the swish of air in my hair.  If I’d been anywhere else but work I might have clapped my hands and giggled in my delight.
  • I shared about metaphysics.  I found out a few months back that one of my coworkers shared my enthusiasm for biking; later I discovered that he was spiritual, too.  He’s asked me about my class before, and last week he was asking some fairly detailed questions.  I found my excitement growing as I shared my knowledge and personal experience with spirituality.  I was getting so enthusiastic, I thought I might scare him!  However, we wants to talk about it more this week.
  • I chit-chatted in Spanish!  There are some really awesome people at the warehouse — they really are the best part of the job — and one of them asked me about my past, and I guess I’d mentioned that I taught Spanish last year.  He told one of the processors, and she struck up a conversation with me in the bathroom. 🙂  It felt so good to use it again and also to make a new friend.  Lesson 9 in metaphysics class was about meeting new people and making new friends, and I realized that there are SO many people in the warehouse!
  • I got to be a little teacher-y and left some cutsie sticky notes on some of the processors’ tables.  My job is frustrating sometimes because my job is to check-in the carts of the processors, and every processor is different, and many of them are new,  so many mistakes are made, and that really adds a lot of stress to my work.  One of the things that is helpful is if the processors fold over the ruined pages of books (ripped, water damaged, or full of writing), so I can see why they’ve put those books aside on the cart.  Instead of getting super upset when people didn’t fold over there book pages, I decided I was going to write mini-thank you notes to those who did it: “Thank you for folding over the pages of your No Values! 🙂 🙂 🙂 ”  And I got some positive responses from it.  I may try something similar next week. 🙂
  • Peace. One of my tutoring jobs is stressing me out a bit, but yesterday, in the midst of some of the stress, I had a mini-epiphany and felt complete peace.  I wish I could remember what is was because the stress came back in full force later!
  • I heard the sound of silence.  Silence has a sound!  Maybe it’s actually some specific sound that I wasn’t aware of before, but I heard it in the car when I meditated.  (I’ve discovered that I cannot meditate before bed, as suggested — I get sleepy and antsy!  But meditating in the car while I wait to punch in has been a great experience for me.  Compared to my upstairs bedroom with the noise of highway traffic coming from the windows, my car is like a sound vacuum.  And that’s where I first heard the sound of silence.  But tonight, when I meditated in that bedroom, I heard it again.  And then I heard it a bit during the candle activity, too!
  • Pumpkin pancakes! My eating has been all messed up since my jobs have been changing, and my new position is moderately physical, and I’ve lost a lot of weight and have been really hungry.  I’ve concluded that I need to spend more time with food, and for lunch today I made pumpkin pancakes from the Trader Joe mix, and Brian made some super scrumptious eggs and hash browns.  I was one, full, super-satisfied lady. 🙂
  • Play.  In the middle of a math game with one of my students on Saturday I realized: “Hey!  I’m playing at work!”  I tried a new multiplication math board game, and she loved it and wanted to do it again next week.  And the best part is we both had fun!
  • Faced my Fears. As mentioned in my previous post, I pushed through some uncomfortableness this past week and learned how to ask for what I needed — and it wasn’t bad!
  • 1771 — Got this twice at the exact same time from my two different odometers (107701 and 177.1)!  According to Joanne Sacred Scribes, these numbers mean I’m on the right track and thinking good thoughts.  This is great news from my angels!  It also reminds me to be grateful to the universe.  Will do!
  • Dreaming about ghosts.  I’m dreaming more again, which is a good sign that I’m reconnecting with my subconscious.  I get frustrated, though, when I can’t figure out what the symbols mean or how they fit together.  I had a pretty wacky dream this weekend with ghosts in it, and though I didn’t understand it, my School of Metaphysics dream dictionary said it has something to do with the inner levels of consciousness and that I may want to study out-of-body experiences and astral projection to gain conscious knowledge of my whole self.  Cool!!
  • Danced with my sister. I keep wanting to dance, but I don’t make some time for it.  I keep telling myself to just put some music on and dance around the house, or else work out to Zumba.  Finally, I got some dancing in at my cousin’s wedding last Friday.  My sister and I were the first ones to arrive at the reception, and some alternating Sinatra and Buble were playing on the speakers in the incredibly gorgeous Crystal Gardens of Navy Pier.  My sister and I took advantage of the privacy and twirled away, her royal blue skirt, and my echnicolored-Joseph-y skirt swishing, as we flitted about the floor, jumping fountains splishing and splashing around us.
  • Heard my all-time favorite reading. 1 Corinthians 13 — amazing reading.  If you’ve been to many weddings, and you’re a feminist like me, I’m sure you’ve heard that particular reading or two that has made you either cringe or want to punch through a wall.  Thankfully, my cousin did not pick those particular readings for her wedding. Instead, I found myself extremely moved, wiping at my eyes with my hands and my shawl, when I heard the entirety of my favorite Bible chapter read aloud in that enormous cathedral.  I still have not completely made peace with my Catholic upbringing, but this experience certainly helped.  I decided right there that I was going to type up that passage and post it on my wall next to my dream board.  I was truly inspired.
  • Understood why I cry every time I read The Giving Tree.  That is my absolute favorite book, and taking a Childrens Multicultural Literature class for my masters nearly ruined it for me. (Some critic related the story to the plight of women and society’s demand that they give and give without receiving in return.)  Today I understood why the story is so enchanting for me.  Because this has been my struggle and my focus: giving and receiving.  I have trouble giving; I have trouble receiving; and my intuitive report added a further dimension to this realization when it revealed my resentment of forced giving or unappreciated giving.  Here, in this story, the tree epitomizes the perfect giver.  She is a Jesus figure, ready to give everything she has, even parts of herself, without expecting a thing in return.  And she is happy, just to be able to do this.  This is something I have yet to understand or be able to do, but I recognize how powerful and beautiful it is.  This is something I know I must aspire to if I hope to reach enlightenment.

I’m looking forward to my discoveries for next week!

The Best Part of the Past is That It Is Over

I’ve had a few rough patches this week.  But I’ve had a bit of a break through.  When the stress-inducers had passed, I felt myself thinking: “It’s over.”  It dwells in the past only, only alive as long as my mind makes it so.  Step 1: Continue along this path.  Step 2: Find a way to make the present more pleasant.
