What if, at the beginning of each year, you got a hand-delivered message that said: Here is your mission for this year. Here is what to expect and here is the best way to get through it in the most natural way for YOU.
Guess what? The Universe does exactly that for us. There are energetic roadmaps that shows our natural patterns for the year.
Got goals? Why not use your natural energetic patterns to help you get to those goals?
I say hell yeah!!
Here we are, about to start a new year. So, why not be better prepared?
When you’re working towards a particular goal, knowing what innate energies will be present in your life and what “cycles” you are in is very beneficial.
Your personal ‘numbers’ ( via Numerology) and the main cards of your current forecast reveal these energies.
Why not know and use the energies that will be present in your life to help you achieve your goals?
Before I talk about how to use this information, let me clarify:
The Cards in your forecast goes from your birthday to your next birthday. Your Personal Year number goes from the start of a new year, to the next new year.
Every one of us will have a new Personal year number once we are in 2017. As an example, my birthday is in July, so while I am still in the forecast (through the cards) until my next birthday in July, my personal year number will change on Jan 1st – thus having an influence on my forecast.
This sounds more confusing than it really is.
These logistics get easy to recall once you are tuned into knowing your personal cycles and current energies at play.
The point is in knowing how to benefit from them.
Being aware of the cycles is the first step in benefiting from it. This helps you to understand why the things that are happening are happening. It takes you out of any confusion or feelings of being a victim, or as some feel, that they’ve been cursed or did something bad. What an awful way to go through your days!
When you understand the energy of the cycle you’re in, you can take advantage of it to help you with your goal. As well, if you know the cycle of your spouse, kids or others you are close with, it helps with understanding where they are as well.
This is the beauty of knowing and understanding the tools we’ve been given. This information is what I call our ‘soul stats.’
We go through 9 year “cycles.” We begin anew in our personal 1 year, and each year’s energy after that helps us to move through that cycle towards the dreams and future we set at the beginning.
I ‘ve been in a personal 2 year in 2016. My Long Range card (the main energy for my year) is a 2♠ and my Pluto card is also a 2♠. A LOT has been going on for me regarding partnerships and doing things with others as well as cooperation and compromises. Those 2 cards went along with my 2 Personal year number beautifully.
But now for 2017, my Personal Year number will be a 3, yet those 2 cards are still in play.
What does that mean for me?
A 3 year is more active, more creative. I’m taking what I gained from the partnerships, compromises and cooperation situations and will use it to outwardly express myself in more social situations. A 3 year can be very social, very creative and it should be more fun! But ONLY if I’ve fully owned and embraced my truth and what is in my heart. It is like we have the 2 year to find our truth because of our more intimate relationships – in a 3 year, we can feel confident to go out and BE our truth!
What tends to happen – without us even realizing it – is that what is going on in our life will “fit” the cycle we’re in.
The experiences, people and your energy will fit the cycle you’re in.
What can happen if you don’t know the natural energy you’re in?
Things can feel as if you’re getting nowhere, or the same things keep happening over and over and they aren’t what you want happening.
If you’re in a 9 year and trying to launch a new business, things will seem stuck, clogged or as if you’re losing. You might face more losses than launches.
If you’re in a 7 year and you’re trying to network, socialize and expand your business, you might find yourself sick a lot or things happen that keep you out of the social situations you think you should be in because this energy is about time alone in reflection.
Yes, you can still proceed in your usual way without knowing. We have free will at all times to do what we want! But the natural energy or flow that allows us to live with ease might be one that conflicts with your plans.
Think of it like this: You decide you want to go to the lake. You put on your swimsuit, pack your sunscreen and head out there. But, it is December and there is a Lake Effect snow advisory. Snow showers are in the forecast and 3 to 6 inches are expected.
You could ignore the forecast and go. You might enjoy yourself…you could struggle through it. But, why go do something that is unpleasant or contradictory to the situation if you could instead, do something that goes with the situation? Maybe on that cold snowy day, you could build a fire and read a good book.
While that example might be very simple, the fact remains that when we go with the flow of the natural energies at play, things are easier, smoother and we actually get MORE accomplished! There is a reason for the cycles we have in nature and while our society puts non-stop ACTION on a pedestal, we must have time to ponder, time to sow ideas, time to clear clutter, time to hibernate and time to work with others.
And as always happens, your Forecast cards fit so beautifully in even when your personal number changes. It adds this little twist to make your situation uniquely YOURS and to allow for your journey to go in the direction your soul is wanting you to go.
Why not be aware of this and use it to your benefit?!?
I know what is going on and what I need to do, and because I know….I understand how to plan.
I can plan accordingly and not get distressed when others say, this is what you should be doing.
As well, the Universal number is going to change. 2016 has been a universal 9 year – a year of endings, completions and a wrap-up.
2017 will be a universal 1 year – a year for new beginnings, new ideas and new projects. If you can view what is going on around you globally and realize things have been breaking down so NEW can be built, you’ll go through the year with a clearer understanding.
Add YOUR new personal number to that universal 1 energy to see HOW YOU will be helping with the NEW stuff being built!
It (WE) all works together to create this life we decided to be a part of at THIS time!
This is why knowing reduces anxiety and stress!
How friggin’ awesome is it to be clear on what is going on?!
I love working with a clients ‘soul stats’ – which is the information in their astrological chart, their numbers and their cards – so they can clearly know and plan for the things they truly desire!

What are our relationships for?
Peaceful and loving unions, balanced and harmonious relationships, or power struggles, manipulation and pain…when it comes to affairs of the heart, we deal with both sides of the coin.
This past New Moon was in Libra giving us an opportunity to look at our relationships – why are they and what are they?
Jupiter is now in Libra (conjuct the New Moon) which helps us out with this – expanding the opportunity
The card for this post is the 2 of hearts. How appropriate that I drew it on this New Moon in Libra.
What can this card share with us about matters of the heart and relationships?
The basic meaning of the 2 of hearts card is: being with the one(s) you love. I also seeing it as time spent doing what you love. It is those people and experiences that bring us closer to understanding who we are and how we are divine.
Without relationships, we can’t fully understand ourselves or life. As painful as they can be and as much as we sometimes think, “being alone is much easier,” we just aren’t made to be 100% alone.
I’m not saying everyone has to have a romantic partner – I’m talking about relationships in general. You have them with your kids, pets, neighbors, hobbies, food, money, work, friends….we have relationships with everything around us.
We either don’t care about some things, or we care deeply.
In my last post, I talked about soul contracts and how the relationship between the cards can help us understand the relationships between ourselves and another. Our soul contracts are our relationships with other people. Some are temporary, some lifelong, some very close and harmonious, some very painful – but each of them help us to evolve.
If we allow that to be the case…
What are you searching for in your relationships?
The answer to this question can help you understand what you are wanting to know or heal within yourself.
(is it support, compassion, understanding, fun, companionship, love…etc.)
The answer changes as we change.
The relationships we have change as we change – they change as we need and require certain contracts and experiences to reveal our areas of growth, healing and transformation.
The 2 of Hearts card sits at the intersection of Venus and Neptune.
It’s easy to see why it would be there with Venus – she is all about relationships, love, attraction, beauty and harmony. But, why Neptune and what does that add?
Neptune is about knowing who we really are – that we are divine and that we are so much more than just our physical bodies and ego.
Neptune speaks to the development of the awareness of our divinity.
We need relationships to have that development.
A 2 of Hearts person (they have the 2 of hearts as their birth or ruling card) are the Lovers of the deck. They need others, it is what they seek in life, though they can get lost in the concept of love or have such high ideals about the perfect relationship that they feel constantly disappointed. But, they teach us all about the need for relationships.
If you have the 2 of Hearts in your birth card spread, whatever planet it is, will have you seeking relationships within the context of what that planet represents.
Jupiter recently went into the sign of Libra. With it there, you can check to see what house Jupiter is in in your natal chart.
You can find that out here with the Transit chart. The House Jupiter is in is where you might find yourself dealing with relationships. These relationships can benefit you, help you grow and bring you joy, and harmony.
If you have the 2 of Hearts in your forecast this year or it comes up as a card you draw, it is an opportunity to ask yourself:
- What brings you joy in relationships?
- What is the connection between your spirituality and your relationships?
- What do you really want in your relationships?
- Within the context of the planet the 2 of hearts is in – what is your relationship to its theme?
-Mercury – communication, ideas, thoughts
– Venus – love, friends, family, beauty, art, pleasure
– Mars – passion, motivation, will power
– Jupiter – faith in the goodness of life, prosperity, money
– Saturn – responsibility, work, challenges, discipline
– Uranus – the groups you’re associated with, your individuality
– Neptune – your spirituality, your illusions about life, your dreams and wishes
Relationships are more than romance, crushes, friendships, family or partners. They are a mirror for us and they also provide us with experiences of the divine. We need them to be better, enjoy life more and understand ourselves!
Do you ever wonder why you have the friends you have? We all think we had no choice in who our parents are, but what if we actually chose them?
Do you wonder why you met a specific person? Why did they come into your life?
Have you ever thought about soul contracts? That the people that come into your life are there for a reason? At a non-physical level, you both agreed to assist or work with one another.
In our Stellar Family Community, we posted a video session about soul contracts. You can watch the video here and ask questions and participate in our forum. (Our community is free – you just need to join!) but as I listened to our guides talk about how we have many soul contracts and how there are many who are co-creators with us as we walk our path, I felt blessed that within the card system is a way for us to better understand all of those various relationships that are soul contracts.
First, a tiny bit about soul contracts:
Soul contracts are agreements you are making from the multidimensional aspect of you. This can include the non-physical as well as the physical. It is an agreement between your partner, your family, your friends, a pet, a job, a place that you live, etc. They are contracts you are making in order to share, change, grow, and appreciate the present through variety of experience. Life would be pretty boring if we were truly alone with nothing to prompt evolution!
The “mystical” or confusing soul contracts are usually “larger” and made from the non-physical, which is why they typically feel a little bit like a head-spin. So our advice to you is to use your heart!
I don’t know about you, but sometimes a person will come into my life, cause what feels like unnecessary pain, and I am shouting, WHY!?!
Many times it is confusing as to why certain people behave as they do and we wonder why we are dealing with them at this point in our lives. We struggle with how we can help the situation. (Unless you enjoy relationship drama!)
One of the most popular topics I get with clients when doing readings is about their confusing or painful relationships.
Within the system of the cards is an in-depth formula for better understanding our relationships.
Because it is so in-depth, I can’t share all the ways the cards can clarify things in a single blog post, but I wanted to share a few basic ways you can see what might be going on between you and another person and why you are in what might seem like a frustrating or confusing relationship.
All you need to check in with this basic formula is two things:
- Know the birthday of the other person
- Use the Solar spread chart (You can see it below)
If you know anything about the cards, you probably know that we each have a birth card and a ruling card (much like we have an astrological sun sign and a rising sign). If you don’t know anything about the ancient system within the deck of playing cards, learn more here.
You can use the birth chart here on my website to see what your birth card is if you don’t already know.
You’ll want to also see what the birth card is for the person you are wondering about. (You need to know what their birthday is.)
The Solar Spread chart (also called the Earth Spread) is how the cards are naturally arranged. Below is an image of the Solar Spread.
Find your birth card in the chart.
First, you want to see what cards are in your birth card spread – these are the cards that comprise the blueprint of you and define your birth card. There are more than 8 cards in this spread, but for the sake of keeping this simple, we will only use 8.
All you need to do is see what the 8 cards are following your birth card.
You do this by finding the card that sits to the left of your birth card and continue going left.
The first card to the left will be your Mercury card, then Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and finally Pluto.
The image below shows what my birth card spread is. I’m a 6♣. I wanted to use my card as an example so you can see what to do if the card you are looking at sits at the bottom of the chart.
The rule for finding your birth card spread is: always go to the left, then drop down to the next row, start on the right side and continue left.
The exception to this is when the card is found on the bottom row. In that case, you’ll go up to the top, start on the right and count left. I’ve circled my birth card and used numbers to show what cards are in my Birth card spread.
I’m only using 8 planets, which goes to Pluto.
Card #1 is Mercury
Card #2 is Venus
Card #3 Is Mars
Card #4 is Jupiter
Card #5 is Saturn
Card #6 is Uranus
Card #7 is Neptune
Card #8 is Pluto
Those cards are my Mercury through Pluto cards.
Next, do this same thing with the birth card of the other person – find their birth card spread.
Now, you’re ready to look at three ways to see what energetic relationships are going on between your card and their card.
1. The first method for seeing what your relationship might be about is to see if the other person “is” one of your birth spread cards.
What do I mean by this? A close friend of mine is a K♠. You can see that my Saturn card is the K♠. This shows me that she will represent my Saturn card. Energetically, she will be very “Saturn” to me and be someone who will be showing me what my Saturn card is about. Remember that the cards represent the people in our lives as well as an energetic pattern. How can we realize what an “energy” is for us, unless we experience it in the physical? The best way for us to do this is by experiencing it through the people we relate to day in and out!
One of the very helpful things about realizing this is that while I will experience her in this way, others in her life won’t. If we have mutual friends, we won’t all experience her this way – they will experience her in whatever energy their relationship is. This is so helpful to know when any drama erupts between a circle of friends!
You will be looking to see if the person you are inquiring about is one of the cards in your spread, or you are one of the cards in their spread.
Now, in the above example between my friend and I – it is only that she is my Saturn – I’m not Saturn to her. My 6♣ birth card is not in her Birth card spread.
This means she’ll be a certain energy for ME – but she won’t feel that energy FROM me.
This is the first basic thing to look for when you’re checking on another person and what might be going on between you two.
2. The second thing to look for is called the Vertical connection.
I’ll use my daughter as an example. Her birth card is the 9♥.
As you can see from the chart to the right, her Birth card spread is not the same as mine at all – but we do have a connection.
Her card is directly above mine or “vertical” to me.
Since her card is 2 spaces away from mine, that makes her Venus to me. (remember that Mercury is 1, Venus is 2 – so 2 spaces is Venus)
But, it is not the same for her.
Since we only go up when we look at connections, we see from her point of view, I am card #6 – which is Uranus. (when you work up and get to the top, you go back to the bottom)
This means, to me, her energy is Venus. I will experience Venus with her.
But to her, mine is Uranus. She will experience Uranus with me.
**Below I explain the energy of each planet and what they mean in a relationship.
3. The third thing to look at is if your card and their card has a diagonal connection.
I’ll use my housemate as an example. Her birth card is the 3♣. Looking at the image below, you can see that she sits diagonally from me 2 spaces.
Because it is diagonal, it is mutual. Meaning, I am also Venus to her. So, there is a Venus energy that flows between us. Unlike my other example, we will both experience the Venus energy. (I’ve been using examples that are all two spaces away…remember, it can be 1 space away , which is Mercury, or 3, which is Mars, or 4 which is Jupiter, etc.)
Once you see what type of relationship your two cards have, you can use the reference below to get a better idea of the type of energy there will be between you and the other person.
Remember that unless the connection is diagonal, the point of view will be different and that alone can affect a relationship!
**Here is what each planet represents as an energy in a relationship:
- If the other person is Mercury to you – You will find that you both think and talk in a similar way. You communicate easily and share similar ideas and points of view, or you stimulate one another intellectually and converse well.
- If the other person is Venus to you – You will love, appreciate and enjoy them. You won’t feel the need to change them, you feel no issues, it is a very loving, easy relationship!
- If the other person is Mars to you – they will motivate you, give you strength to move forward, or make you angry. If this is a romantic relationship, there will be a lot of passion and heat between you two.
- If the other person is Jupiter to you – they will be a blessing to you – giving things to you without being asked! They will support and encourage you. You are very compatible.
- If the other person is Saturn to you – They will act as a teacher for you and you might not always like it! They might feel like a burden or make you feel less than because they might always be telling you what you “should or shouldn’t” be doing. But, they can be a great opportunity for you to grow and improve yourself by not taking their criticism personally and instead use it constructively.
- If the other person is Uranus to you – They will do unexpected things that take you by surprise, and you might feel uncertain with them or their actions and you can’t control them. But there is a deep friendship when you allow them to be who they are and not place any expectations on them.
- If the other person is Neptune to you – you will probably see them through rose-colored glasses and there will be a sense of disillusionment with them. This can be a difficult relationship if you only see them as you think they should be, or it can be very enlightening if you take a step up with this relationship and allow the spiritual essence of it to allow you both to grow. There will be a strong psychic bond between you two.
- If the other person is Pluto to you – They will be challenging to you and they can help transform you. They can be a reminder of what you want to become, or they can feel like someone who is shining the light on your shortcomings, or wanting to control you. They will do things that brings Pluto energy into your life so you can transform something you need to transform.
There is a low and high/positive and negative to every planetary energy.
A Venus or Jupiter relationship might be someone who has a soul contract to help you, assist you or be the one who delivers the blessings of the Universe to you. If we constantly refuse their gifts to us, we are blocking our blessings and the love that Source is showing us.
A Mars, Saturn or Pluto relationship can feel challenging or hard, and we might think it best to be rid of them, when in fact, if we are aware of what is going on, we can step up and improve our life from what they offer us. (I want to add here that abuse or any dysfunctional relationship that is hurting you is not one to stay in – when I say “challenging”, I’m not referring to abuse.)
Every relationship is an opportunity for us to evolve and experience what we came to experience in this life.
If you feel confused by someone, ask yourself these questions:
- Why did I choose to have this relationship?
- What would I change about this relationship?
- What is awakening within me because of this person?
- What about them is just like me?
- What about them is something I wish was me?
- How do my answers reflect the energy of the planet(s) represented in the relationship between our cards?
What I’ve shared in this post is but a tiny part of what the cards can reveal about our relationships, but even one small “aha” can make all the difference in your life when navigating relationships!

Soul contracts are essential to our experience on earth as a human being. Whether easy, fun, hard or challenging, the people in our lives are there for a reason.
I will admit…I’m feeling like I’ve hit rock bottom. Things have not been this scary for me in many years.
So much is going on in the world and the astrological events have us feeling unstable, unsure and disappointed.
Fortunately, Saturn turned direct after its four months in retrograde. Literally, from the second day it went retrograde until yesterday, I have been in a state of questioning. What exactly IS my work? What kind of routine do I want? How do I do what I really want to do? I’m very unhappy with certain things in my life right now.
Saturn has been in my 6th house – the house of work, service and our routines.
I can look back now and see how it made me question everything, it made me weigh all I was doing and make some core decisions. It hasn’t been pleasant.
I over-reacted when things felt out of control and my ‘reality’ seemed unsure.
I know that focusing on my uncertainty and my current frustration isn’t going to get me where I want to be.
This has been a huge opportunity for me to really hone in on how we need to NOT focus on the stuff around us that feels and looks negative.
But, how do we do this?
After my housemate did a tarot reading for me, I calmed down. She assured me that underneath the surface, things were just fine. I think some wise advice for things right now are to take deliberate actions instead of reacting to how things seem to be.
I reached out for help by talking to a few friends. It helped immensely. We all need that right now. Don’t forget to reach out if you need to. Allow yourself to receive care and support, and be open to unexpected GOOD. Things are better than they seem. Even if it feels as if nothing is happening – guess what? It is – even if we can’t see it right now.
The exercise below helped me a lot, so I wanted to pass it along to you.
Here are 3 powerful steps to help you clear any past (or current) gunk so you can move forward:
- Acknowledge where you are right now. Acknowledge it on an emotional level. The past doesn’t exist anymore. Who you were is no longer. But, as humans, we hold onto all that gunk and it clogs us up when we try to make any changes. Guess what? It’s all OK. Own it. Own any negative feelings you have right now about money issues, about how you feel about yourself, how you feel about how you make your living, how you feel about any failures, mistakes or confusion. You can’t get clear when the muck of any negative feeling is clogging you.
Do you feel stuck? Scared? Unsure? Powerless?
Write it all down. Create a poem about it. Dance it out. Slather paint on a board that represents it.
Make sure you address all negative emotions that you currently have about your life.
Then step back and say. “All of that is OK. But now I’m focusing on how I want it to be and I’m moving on. And you’re not moving on with me.”
You must release it to the point that it no longer has an emotional charge for you. Because what’s in front of you right now is perfect.
Yes, read that line again: Because what’s in front of you right now is perfect.
How can bad health, or no money, or the insanity of our country’s politics, or the economy be perfect as it is?
Narrow your focus down to just YOU. Where you are, what is going on, IS perfect, right now.
You do this in order to retrain how you think and focus.
Regardless of what is going on around you and what others are saying, feeling and thinking, you don’t have to buy into it and make it your vibration. You can choose NOT to focus in on it, always be talking about it, getting all riled up about it. You have a choice, which is what your innate power is – to choose your reality.
To move past what is not feeling good for you currently in your life is to become a vibrational match for what you DO WANT as often as you can.
What are the majority of your thoughts? THAT is what Source will match and bring to you.
The stuff that is upsetting you is upsetting you because that is what you are focusing on. Paying attention to it isn’t going to make it better. Expecting things to be better, imagining how you want it to be and knowing things WILL improve WILL make it better.
Back to that where you are is perfect statement.
It is where you need to be in order to know exactly what you want.
That has been HUGE for me. Because of how things are for me right now, I have been getting REALLY clear on exactly what I want, where I want to be and what I want to do.
Once you acknowledge the gunk –
- You focus on all the positive things you have going on right now and have accomplished and are grateful for in your life.
Where have you succeeded? What do you do well? What in your life is working really well? What do you have that you love? What do you do that you love and are good at?
Don’t limit this list. Get into everything about you that is on track and awesome – even the little things!
- Go back to that first list and one by one, take responsibility for it. With each one, say, “Yes, this is how I feel about this. I created this. It happened. So what?”
Surrender to it. With no judgment.
So what if you’ve been stuck? So what if you’ve been scared and freaked out about money? So what if you’ve felt a lack of confidence in your abilities? So what if someone made a negative comment about something you did? So what if your parents think you are not as far in life as they think you should be? So what if you failed at the last 3 attempts to start a business?
Why can you say “so what?” to all of it?
Because the ONLY thing it means is that you weren’t in alignment with what you wanted.
It has NOTHING to do with your ability, potential or possibilities. Zip. Nada.
Shit happens. Shit happens to all of us. We all go through negative times and feelings. We all get stuck, make mistakes and freak out.
But now….now you realize this and you can just let it all go and stand in a new space… a space of: “Now I know what I want and how to be in alignment with it so I can manifest it.”
You know how contrast can make a story, image or poem pop? Well, it makes life pop too. It makes us see and know what we don’t like or want, so we can focus on what we do want.
That is all.
Repeat after me. “That is all.”
Here is a little secret for you: If you let it go and truly release the emotional charge of it, then anyone who might’ve been part of making you feel bad about it, will also stop.
The world can be going “to hell” as we like to say, but things can be blissfully peachy for you – because that is what Source will deliver to you – as long as you take your focus OFF the “going to hell” stuff. 😉
Let’s retrain how we think, shall we?
What was a major turning point in your life that assisted in your leap? What transpired that helped you on your spiritual journey?
I had the opportunity this past week to go back to a place where it all began for me. I want to share that story with you.
The thing that stood out for me in going back was how far I’ve come. It was like visiting the college you graduated from. You see your old professors and everything is going along as it was when you went there – but you are different. You took that experience and knowledge and you formed your life.
In my twenties, I made a choice to seek my spiritual path. Not the path I was raised on or expected to follow, but my own.
Then things began happening.
To keep this from being a novel, I’ll list the next few events:
- I began studying my dreams and went looking for any book I could on dream work. (I mainly studied Carl Jung at that point)
- At some point in the study of my dreams, I came across the magazine that the Association for Research and Enlightenment put out called Venture Inward. This is the Edgar Cayce Foundation in VA Beach, VA. I had no idea who Edgar Cayce was, but the dream work from a spiritual perspective intrigued me.
- One day when taking my kids to the Library in Albuquerque, I was slowly walking down the aisles as my kids were playing in the children’s area. At one point, a book literally fell off a shelf and landed at my feet. It was called There is a River – The Story of Edgar Cayce. I checked it out and read the entire book that night.
- That book was exactly what I needed to bridge that gap I felt between my traditional upbringing and the new more metaphysical things I was learning. I was so intrigued by his story and by what the A.R.E was doing and what Edgar Cayce taught from his readings, that I subscribed to Venture Inward.
- I discovered more and more through their magazine. I found an Edgar Cayce study group in Albuquerque and studied the readings. I knew that I wanted to learn more and be a teacher of metaphysics someday. (I had no idea I’d have a daughter who channeled!)
- I would spend each day daydreaming about living near the A.R.E and being able to study there. My new spiritual path was exciting and I was changing and growing, but I was trying to do it all alone and I was craving peers and teachers. I kept all of this to myself. I sure as heck couldn’t say to my hubby, “Let’s move to Virginia!”
( I had never been further east than Louisiana.)
One day hubby came home from work and announced that he had lost his job. We both did the usual freak out thing…Albuquerque wasn’t exactly the best place to find a good job and we had three small children to take care of.
We did the usual hunt-for-work thing for a few months to no avail. Then one evening I got a phone call from a close friend who lived in Utah. She said her hubby was driving to VA and asked if he could spend the night with us?
I said of course he could!
He arrived and we picked his brain about why he was going to VA. He told us a new power plant had been built and he was going for a job interview there.
We asked how he knew about the job and he told us the name of the guy who told him about the job.
Well, the guy was my hubby’s long lost best friend! We had lost track of him and his wife over the years (this was pre-internet).
We called him up and after catching up asked about this power plant. He filled us in on the details of the small town and the power plant.
When they hung up, I said to my hubby – we are moving there in 2 weeks.
We owned a home, had no money to move on and there was absolutely NO guarantee that hubby could get a job at the plant. We had never been to VA, and we had no idea what it was like there!
But, we did it. We packed up and left in 2 weeks’ time – sight unseen, no home to move into and no money.
But it all worked out, every little step along the way.
That continued my spiritual studies in such a rich and exciting way.
That was in 1991.
Alternative health, Astrology, Numerology and Divination were my primary topics, but I immersed myself in many and had years of being able to uplevel my life. I ended my clinical depression, got healthy and in shape and taught my kids to follow their bliss.
When I discovered what the playing cards were really all about, I knew that was the topic/tool I was meant to share and teach. All I had learned on my journey had prepared me for what I do now.
While we were at the A.R.E. this past week, we listened to a lecture on Reincarnation.
What stood out for me was how much the speaker talked about how we, as souls, come to Earth for the experiences and growth we get here.
The number “5” is the number of man, the number associated with earth. It represents the five senses. We come here to evolve and grow as souls. (Which allows Source to evolve as well!)
Someone in the audience asked why would we want to come here and live over and over when we could just be in the spirit realms?
It is because this is such an excellent school! I could go on and on about what the number 5 represents. Look at an apple, how many seeds does it have when you cut it in half? Five. Even the numerology of America is a “5” (7+4+1776 = 5)
The birthday of our Federal Government is also a “5” (3+4+1789= 5).
And Edgar Cayce was a 5 of Diamonds!
The Five is about change and requires action. Change has been a HUGE buzzword lately – for me personally and for society as we are moving though such an intense time in history. (more on that topic when I begin my posts about America’s forecast for this year via the cards).
But, I bring it up here because that was what stood out for me the most in going back to the A.R.E.
I had changed. I had grown. I had evolved.
The A.R.E. was my school and the tool that helped me change and build my foundation. I grew into learning from my omniscience and by using the tool that resonated with me the most (the cards).
My oldest daughter (Randi) was just in elementary school when we would go there is now channeling. My youngest daughter works with autistic kids – but in a way that sees them not as defective, but as special beings with a message for us, for they are here to live through a different lens.
My son has created a creative community in Santa Cruz and produces music with musicians who have a vital message to share regarding how we treat one another and how important our connection is to our planet.
We sat in the gardens there (it was the kids favorite place when they would go with me) and we did a channeled session. All three of us owe a lot to the A.R.E.
We can look back and see the incredible journey that led us to where we are now.
And best yet, we know that we still have a LOT more ahead on our journey!!
