ARE YOU READY TO CREATE A NEW PATH?
I love reading my astrology report for the year ahead. I do not think that whatever is written in the stars is etched in stone as we all have free will and choice. But I do love to see a glimpse of the potential of the year ahead.
I also love numerology. I like the concept that everything holds a vibration and numbers do as well. Numbers can indicate the types of vibration that is current or will come up.
Last year 2018 in numerology added up to an 11 year. This represented a we and me energy. This type of energy is about balancing partnerships and individuality.
It was a year represented by the healing of Self and was a year of spiritual understanding.
That was such a huge theme, don't you think?
In our social media and news feeds, we learned how individuals stood up to take back their power. To shed light on the dark energy that was disempowering which creates victims.
We began to question partnerships. Were they were being positively supportive or perhaps fed the disempowerment?
The energy behind 2018 was about clearing. There were those who stood and spoke their truth. Many were courageous to shine a light on the darker corners of our planet. We began to understand on our personal level the old ways were no longer working for us. It seemed like our path was disintegrating behind us as we strode forward through 2018. There was a feeling of no turning back.
That brought up a lot of fear for many of us. I know I felt at times the hot breath of change on my neck while I was not ready to open the door of change and step through. The universe, of course, saw the bigger picture and often pushed me through anyway.
Do you remember playing games as a child and calling out “Ready or not here I come?” It was my theme for 2018. Can you relate?
This makes me feel a bit uneasy about 2019. Will it be as intense? Have the changes I have made be enough or will the learnings be slapping me upside the head this year too?
2019 is the energy of elevation. 2019 in numerology is a 3 year number. Which represents creation, creativity, self-expression and emotion.
Last year we were learning to stand in our truth and speak it.
This year we get to practice our lessons learned and express our uniqueness. We still are in the midst of change. For many of us, it will still be a period of integration of what we learned last year. There will be ample opportunities to apply what we learned and reapply if we did not. Life lesson repetition is what this is called. Around and around we go! We may feel we are always on a merry go round stopping at the same place. However, we are actually stopping with a higher elevation and a deeper perspective.
As we move forward the path behind us disintegrating is forcing us to abandon old ways that will not fit the new. We can begin to feel the anticipation. What is going to happen? How is this going to work? I do not know how to do this? What if I fail?
This is a prime time for our Eternal Patterns to kick in. Anticipation is one of the categories of stress, and our Eternal Pattern is the coping strategy.
The beauty of the 3-year energy is the representation of:
How can I create a new way of doing something? Can I look outside the box at this situation?
How can I use my talents and knowledge from my Soul Blueprint that will help me create the new?
What emotions are coming to the surface? How can I shine a light on the ones I had stuffed down and not acknowledged? Can I embrace those emotions and see how their needs can be met?
For some, you have been actively making changes. For others you may feel like time is running out and panic may be setting in. I can honestly say I have been in both places! In fact, I can alternate from one to another.
When the old ways are coming apart I must make the conscious effort not to focus on the chaos or panic. Otherwise, I will feel disempowered and I can lose my passion while my faith is tested.
The energy theme of this 3 year is creation. Creating our world does come from our thoughts. This will be the learning of patience when making decisions. Being careful of our thoughts as we know every action creates an equal reaction.
Place the panic of time running out and the fear of making a wrong decision on a shelf.
Then get quiet.
Take some deep breaths. Unplug from your devices, go for a walk. Take time in nature. Listen to some beautiful music.
Place your hands on your heart and ask -
* What do I need to acknowledge about making this change?
* What emotions are coming to the surface?
* How can my emotional needs be met?
Pull in your energy. When we attempt to do too much we come restless and reckless! (I call that running through the hallway of change with scissors.)
The first step to gathering your energy always begins with the breath. Then get focused on your heart. This is where the seat of the soul lies. This is where you can receive guidance from your Higher Self.
Remember you are a Divine Soul. You are perfect and not broken. You are on a journey that is about remembering who you are.
This year will be about your true self-expression and how exciting is that?
Embrace 2019 in a state of curiosity and wonderment. What I will learn about myself? What opportunities are going to appear to support that?
This is a time where the veil is being lifted as we can see the dark. We have the choice to acknowledge it for what it is and move towards the light. This is how we become balanced.
We are in a time for the planet to LIVE and CREATE from the heart!
2019 creating your new path to embrace compassion, understanding and honouring your truth as an individual and as part of the universal consciousness.
I am happy to help.
I can't help you with disappearing paths.
I CAN help you build the new path ahead, that aligns with your true Divine Purpose and Divine Blueprint.

Here we are almost at the end of September.
The fresh fall scent in the air, warm days and crisp cool evenings. Perhaps you are enjoying sitting by an evening fire. Are you the type that enjoys watching the fall line up on TV? Are you finding your house a little on the quiet side? The kitchen does not have endless dishes. The fridge has finally been able to cool properly without the ever ending opening and closing. Your gas gage on the car has maintained a lovely setting of almost full all week long!
Are you in the first phase of the blush of empty nesting?
A few short weeks ago you may have made the trek to transfer your beloved darling child to their greatest adventure of all time. Which may be studying at a university or college located in another city, province or heavens…country.
Or are you an old hand at dropping off the new academic to start their wildest dreams.
This might not be your first rodeo at the #student #study #party #needtokeepfocused.
It however may be your first rodeo of #theygraduated #theyhaveajob #theyhavemovedout #nowwhat!
That first while is like being on a honeymoon. Remember back when? Just the two of you sitting in the evening and have deep meaningful conversations. Holding hands and gazing into each others eyes.
Well, I sure hope this is what it is like for you!
In my experience our empty nesting was different.
Yes, I was totally jazzed to finally get the dark grey walls of my sons’ room painted something airy and cheerful. I was looking forward to the zen meditation room I could create in my daughters room.
What I had not anticipated was the no buffer of children.
For a couple of decades the conversations my husband and I had may have started out deep and meaningful but quickly descended into something around one of the children.
It was a constant distraction and over time we lost the ability to really connect.
And there we were sitting next to each other looking at the other person and wondering “who are you?”
And then the even more curious and perhaps even scarier question “who am I?”
Wow! Both those questions kinda knocked me on my butt!
I was so wrapped up in the excitement of the kids growing up, their new adventures in studying, the great new jobs, the new partners in their lives
I had forgotten about my own dreams. I had lost my identity along the way. I was more than a mom, wife, chauffeur, shoulder to cry on when life seemed unfair.
I was a woman who had dreams, bursting with creative ideas, opinions (just ask my husband he will agree on that one). I needed to reacquaint myself with, well myself!
That was when I began my journey, a transition of “who I thought I was” to “who I truly am”.
Yes, some may say it is spiritual which I agree. My thoughts on spirituality is about discovering self love, self acceptance, self awareness while connecting to the oneness of the universe.
I was able to accept that I could put myself first and that did not mean I did not love my family. It meant that I would get more energy and be able to more present and show up as my authentic self.
This was an opportunity for an ending to something, while I transition into another phase of my life.
It was exciting and scary at the same time. Would I change so much my relationship to my husband would suffer? It was difficult I will not kid you on that but it was not about failure or success it was accepting each other as we were. We had grown so much and our view on life had taken on deeper values. We still had our sense of humour. We could still trigger each other but most importantly we respected each other for the people we had become.
I love learning all the different aspects of myself.
My children oscillated between GO MOM and WHERE DID MOM GO?
I was ready to explore who this grown up woman was and to really understand my early beginnings.
The life experiences that shaped my views and outlook on life. I was excited to learn that I had a blueprint for my life.
That all the components of myself were placed strategically to optimize my growth experience.
Now that was exciting!
I was able to see how different patterns would help me in my relationship to my self and relationships to others. It is an ongoing journey with no particular destination in mind, but man I love the scenery along the way! Even when it feels like there are boulders on the path. I know I have the ability to choose the ease to walk around the boulders, or the more difficult to climb over them.
Yes, my relationships have changed, some have deepened, some have fallen away.
My husband and I have experienced some difficult challenges during our transition time of empty nesting. Having the knowledge of our patterns and who we truly are helped rediscover our relationship. We maintained our sense of humour, we connected with each other in a new way and we started to embrace and enjoy our children as adults (although they will always be my kiddos first).
Transition from a full house to empty nesters can be sometimes exciting. It is the transition from I knew “who I thought I was “ to “who I truly am” that is exhilarating.
I am happy to help!
I can’t help you choose what to make over your child’s room into.
I can help you discover the answer to your question of “who am I?”

Has your journey taken you to somewhere unexpected?
Have you ever been nervous to open something? The anticipation of what you might dare to find inside. And to your surprise it is something totally unexpected.
Let me share a true story.
It all begins in a small Mexican village with a family holiday consisting of my sister and I and our husbands. We rented a lovely home with horses grazing on the mountain behind the house, orange trees in the back yard, hibiscus trees climbing the wall, warm and wonderful days.
As the days unfold we get settled into the home exploring and enjoying. My sister remarks that something is wrong with the toilet in their bathroom. It suddenly is leaking and perhaps running a bit too long. This calls for more investigation.
I am in another room when I hear my sister yell my name in a way that makes me run. I find her and her husband standing in their bathroom with wild looking eyes.
“There are frogs in the tank" she says. “What?” I reply. “Frogs” she says. My brother in law nodding his head in agreement.
He reaches over and lifts the lid.
Yup there they were, three little frogs sitting on the tubing.
How in heavens name did they get there?
We pondered and discussed but could not fathom the journey they had. After a few minutes of discussion it is decided I will text our property manager named Angel, and it became very apparent during our stay that he was indeed an Angel.
I have no Spanish except for greetings, ordering a beer, and thanking someone, nothing in the realm of explaining our situation.
Thankfully Angel’s English is much more proficient. I text a brief message “ Angel can you come to the house as the toilet is leaking and we have frogs in the tank” “WHAT” is the reply “Frogs” I message back. “I will arrive soon” Angel texts back.
True to his word, Angel arrives quickly. I take Angel into the bathroom and he lifts the lid. With the same shocked wild eyes he states “ There are frogs in the tank”. “Yup” I reply.
We both smile and he reaches in a scoops one out and opens the window and out it goes.
In a moment his young assistant comes in with tools to fix the leak and Angel speaks rapid Spanish to the young man and lifts the lid. With the startled wild eyed expression that is now the norm the young man replies something in Spanish. Angel replies in English “Yes frogs.”
All three of us are crowded around the toilet smiling and shaking our heads. Angel scoops out the last two frogs which are then sent out the window. Released to the outdoors our little friends have found freedom.
This story makes me think about how we navigate life. We go about our days, eyes wide open taking everything in. We have it all under control right?
I imagine the little frogs felt they had their life under control.
Swimming along and saw something new to explore, a little tunnel. Where could it lead and what could be at the end of it? As they ventured into new territory they found themselves stuck unable to turn back.
This can be very similar to when we start a new journey, ready to transform and change when life feels frustrating or unfulfilling. We are excited to get started to then find ourselves later questioning our decision with fear. What if there is no escape? What if it is worse than where we are now?
How did we find ourselves in this situation? What journey did we take to get here? Are we afraid to open the lid to what we may find?
The trio of frogs kept moving forward. Their commitment to finding a solution to the situation was their intuition that there was an opening and a place to rest.
Our little frogs did something to change their situation by getting our attention.
The leaking toilet alerted us to their plight. They took action by sitting on the tubing out of harms way and waiting for curious humans to lift the lid. They were calm and did not fight the tank. Instead they were patient and waited in their “hallway” for a new door to open.
That door was opened by Angel who assisted them and set them free to enjoy the big outdoors again.
Sometimes our life transition journey requires a decision to seek assistance, commitment to action followed by rest to regroup and then results.
When the fear of the new decision sets in we may feel stuck, this is a perfect time to check in and lift the lid.
Is there a pattern we can see?
Do we have a belief that is being uncovered?
What little frogs are waiting patiently to alert us to the learnings in the moment?
This opportunity is where you may:
- connect to your Soul guidance for navigation to access your path
- understand your purpose from your Soul blueprint,
- recognize the obstacle
- confidently see the solution
- take the appropriate action ask for assistance if further clarity is required
- find yourself free to explore again
I am happy to help!
I can’t help you with any plumbing problems caused by frogs.
I can help you look under your lid to find the solutions
to moving easily through your tunnel.

“Times are difficult globally,” explains Pema Chödrön. “Awakening is no longer a luxury or an ideal. It’s becoming critical.”
Wow, that hit home today. We are in chaos and unsettling times. Do you feel that way too? For several months now my clients are reflecting that their life is in chaos, and that includes me. I am not immune from this energy. My life takes turns being easy and flowing to riding white rapids that want to make me sick.
The current state of world events has everyone wondering what has happened to our planet. Has everyone gone mad? When it becomes crucial for change the precursor is immense discomfort. After all why change if everything feels comfortable? Of course we wonder, can't we create change with grace and ease? Yes, I do believe we can although there are some circumstances that require a huge shake up and I do believe this is one of them.
We are being called to awaken - to wake up. Do we even know we are asleep? What does it mean to awaken?
