The New Moon is only a couple days away and it’s time to set my intention for this moon cycle. I started a new group on Facebook (you can find Lunar Alchemy here) and was thinking about what I needed to post to help folks with this first step. During my quiet time this morning, Spirit reminded me that I needed to “dare to dream”. You see, it’s been a long time since I dreamed about what I wanted in life. My dreams have been replaced by “wishful thinking”. My guardian angels used this language to remind me that “dreams” come from the heart and, well, “wishful thinking” comes from the head. As someone who can over-analyze or plan almost anything, dreaming from the heart seems a little foreign to me at the moment. I am going to do my best to step into this new place … and maybe that’s what my intention for the month needs to be … we’ll see.
For the past couple of weeks, part of my morning ritual has included a request to see and honor the signs and symbols that are place in my path throughout the day. A little bit ago, I looked up to see a pretty big spider crossing the floor and it seemed to disappear into the woodwork. I was busy at the time so couldn’t check out where it actually went, but I took a minute to thank it for it’s message and ask it to please go back outside. The message of weaving my dreams into my personal web of life was pretty clear.
What dreams do you need to weave into your life? What dreams do you need to feel from your heart and allow to rise up within you and enliven your soul? I don’t know what dreams I might have that need to be acknowledged, but I now know what direction my New Moon intention will take.

If you thought maybe you’d missed a post or something … the answer is “no”. While I have every intention of posting on a weekly basis, sometimes LIFE happens and gets in the way or, quite, simply, I don’t have an inspiration to write anything. You see, my posts aren’t planned ahead of time or thematic like many bloggers. Mine are divinely/angelically inspired. It could be what’s going on in the world or my community. Maybe it’s a conversation I saw on Social Media or overheard somewhere. Or maybe it’s a message Spirit wants me to share.
Lately though, I’ve been doing a lot of deeply personal clearing and these are usually times when it’s important for me to “be still” and allow the energies to re-balance. My thoughts, feelings, and actions are personal and about Earth Girl Debi rather than Practitioner Debi. Sometimes I share these, but more often they just clear the way for me to show up in a more authentic or REAL way for all of you.
I’m blessed that one of my massage therapists is deeply spiritual, intuitive, energy sensing, and helps to balance/ground me. I have a couple others that are great at just the body-work part, but Alex is different. I’ve been working on clearing out “that which no longer serves me” for several months now. Evidently, there was a BIG energy shift during my last session with Alex. My body felt like I had run a LONG race. I can’t tell you how many trips I’ve made to the restroom the past few days and won’t share the particulars of the elimination that’s been taking place. My diet hasn’t changed, I’m not sick, and I’m not purposely detoxing. But obviously crap that I’ve been holding on to is being released.
While weight loss would be grand, I feel emotionally lighter and in a better place. I am consistently more grounded and feel more peace and calm. I’ll be real honest, I have been better the past couple of weeks with my morning quiet time and created a personal protection ritual which I do right after I get dressed. I’m sure these, combined with my affirmations and that massage with Alex have moved a great deal of baggage out of my life.
If you don’t have a period of time during the day for your “sacred space”, I encourage you to begin one … even just a few minutes will help you begin to center and find balance. This is especially true if you are in the midst of a storm. At those times, we critically need to clear the chatter of our minds and allow the Divine to speak from a place of quiet stillness. This is where peace comes from. this is where we can be Divinely directed regarding that NEXT step we should take on our journey.
If things seem crazy, jumbled, chaotic, or uncertain … carve out a time to just “be” so you can connect with Spirit and receive the words that will let you move peacefully downstream instead of battling against the current. Let your boat turn around and go with the flow of your life and patiently ask for only the NEXT step. Taking each step as it comes will get you there. I promise.
Life is not about the destination … it’s about the journey … and we can only do it one-step-at-a-time.
Maybe you’d like to share how you carve out quiet time and enable yourself to honor your sacred space.

The winds of change are blowing in my life again. Sometimes they are soft, gentle breezes. Other times, like now, they are a full-blown tempest of raging winds. I guess that’s what happens when you mentally decide to clear the clutter from your life. You see, those gale-force winds blow away anything that’s not strongly anchored down. In my case, it’s mostly a long-term relationship. It takes two people working at it to really anchor a relationship to any kind of foundation. Evidently, I was the only one putting in those anchor bolts. You know, it really sucks … I’ve been doing my part for 7 years and thought things were getting pretty well shored up. A minor conflict of plans completely tore things apart and the pieces are nowhere to be found.
So, now what? Like I said earlier, I had decided to clear emotional/psychological clutter from my life and have been working on staying centered and balanced. Evidently, this relationship was clutter that needed to be cleared … this whole thing happened in the course of just a couple of hours. I’m sad as I really love this person, but he’s made his choices about priorities and I’m no really one of them. I don’t know about you, but I want to be in a fully committed relationship and not just someone’s “part-time lover” that’s used to fill in empty spaces on an ever more complicated schedule.
Staying grounded has become my priority as centered and balanced will come from that. Fully connecting with the divine and my angelic guides for direction is also my priority … they will help me map out my course of action and put me in a position to do the things I need to do for myself and for others.
Why do I tell you all this? Because people tell me that I really have it all together … no, I don’t. There is a lot going on behind the scenes of my life and there is stuff going on behind the scenes of everyone’s life. You just never know unless you’ve been let in and allowed to see. What you see as a grumpy old lady in line at the store today could be someone in my position … filled with sadness and confusion and experiencing grief and loss. This is where compassion comes in … when we have compassion for humanity … what’s going on in their life doesn’t matter … we are kind simply because it’s who we are. And in being kind, everyone wins. Some people in those lines are just plain mean … others are like me and that smile you share could make all the difference in the world.
So, how about you … what little kindness can you do today to make a difference?
My life is anything BUT conventional and sometimes I really struggle with what Other People (OP) think. As I sat with my coffee this morning and let spirit and angels talk to me, I felt them saying “Your life is YOUR life. No one else needs to understand or validate the decisions you make for yourself or your family. Do everything with love and for the highest good.”
Those OP, they will assume and judge – this is their inner voice, inner critic, continuing to align with their concept of truth. Is what you choose kind and compassionate? Do you set personal boundaries? Live YOUR life YOUR way. Read More
My last post on “Morning Routine” sat here as a draft for quite a while before I posted it. Things got more than just a little crazy at my house and my sacred ROUTINE wasn’t anywhere in the mix any more and life became Topsy Turvy (or up-side-down) in a BIG way. Nothing was going right at work or at home and my stress level was through the roof.
I’d started a part-time job that took me away from my home office 4 days a week. The job I’d had the past 6+ years ceased to exist as the company closed, and I started taking online classes to finish up the last 10 classes I need for my Bachelor’s degree. Oh, and Read More

In an earlier post, I referenced my morning routine. I thought I’d expand on it a bit. Personal rituals can be an important part of who we are and how we go about living “on purpose” or being fully present. These rituals or routines help to stabilize our identity.
My morning routine, most days, provides the time and space for me to sit and just “listen” to what my guides and angels want me to know. After rising and getting dressed, I brew a cup of coffee. While this is happening, I take my vitamins and feed the dog. Then I take my cup and head to my home office.

Learning to trust my intuition has been a challenge for me. I second-guess my self on a regular basis. After so many years of doing this work and seeing alignment, this continues to be an area of struggle for me. One of my affirmations for the past month or so has been My intuition is strong and accurate.
I don’t believe in coincidence, I fully acknowledge the synchronicity of things showing up in our lives … signs, symbols, omens. The past couple of weeks, my guides have been working overtime to help me trust my intuition.
I journal almost every day as part of my morning Read More

My family has used essential oils (EO) on and off for about 30 years … my mom got us started a LONG time ago. I used them often when she was alive, but when she died about 12 years ago, none of the rest of us really picked up on it. I think my niece got her oils, I got a book or two … but we never really did anything with it.
A couple of years ago, I went back to school for my massage therapy license and decided I wanted to incorporate some EO basics into my sessions. I picked up some of my favorites and started doing a little research. I even made a couple of blends for us when we had sore muscles or a Read More
All of my life, I’ve been one to think about and analyze things. I am deeply philosophical by nature. I plan things and I have been skeptical of the mystery surrounding the metaphysical world. I have, in the past, been one who needed to see to believe.
I don’t know when this changed or even how. One of my mantras now is “believing is seeing”. Even so, when I first heard about the book Angel Numbers by Doreen Virtue and Lynnette Brown, I again was skeptical that the numbers I was seeing as I went through my daily life held any meaning. I could get on board with basic numerology and things like 11:11 Read More
It was early morning and I was in the kitchen waiting for the Keurig to finish brewing my cup of coffee. My daughter and granddaughter live with me, and I knew my daughter was also awake. I caught a glimpse of movement out of the corner of my eye and started talking to my daughter about what we had going on that day. But I didn’t get an answer.
I turned and looked for the light blue shirt I’d seen just a minute before. I even looked around the corner of the kitchen into the living room. But there was nothing. I went to my daughter’s room and she was curled up in her favorite chair with her laptop, already working. It was obvious that she’d been there for a while … and she had on a bright red shirt.
