Good morning friends, I found this video and as I was watching it, thought about how healing it is. If you are able, open it up full screen and imagine you are walking into the picture. Imagine leaving your worries in the water as you watch the glorious sunrise emerge, sending its beautiful rays over the water. Imagine yourself standing in the light from the sun cleansing yourself from any worries, unforgiveness, sadness, stress or whatever is bothering you. Imagine this beautiful sun healing you. As you stand in the sun light imagine it going through your body uplifting you, inspiring you, loving you. You are healed! You are blessed! The universe loves you and this is a gift from the Universe just for you !

Are you as tired of advertising as I am?

Hi, I don't know about you but I have about had it up to "here" with so many TV advertisements. Even the talk shows say "we'll be back in a minute" and we wait and they say two words, then go to another advertisement. We have counted 7 or 8 advertisements between the show segments. I have been known to fall asleep and miss the whole rest of the show. I've taken showers, washed dishes, finished laundry while they keep trying to sell us stuff. WTF! I watch very little live TV anymore because I've had enough. Instead I tape shows and speed through the ads. If they put a ban on fast forwarding on our Tivo's or DVR's then TV will lose me forever. Who needs them?

I still have the internet, my online games, books and blogs. A nice quiet evening listening to music, singing, being with friends... anything but watching one commercial after another. Below is a good Video I found saying exactly how I feel.

Monday Morning Angel Message

Worry wastes time, saps your energy and makes you fearful. If you find you are worrying about something, give the problem to us, and then forget it. We will handle it for you."

Your Angels
Have a wonderful week!

If I could dance with my father again

Every time I hear this song it makes my eyes leak. It reminds me of my father and how I lost him when I was 13. My father and I were close. If I asked him for a quarter he'd give me 50 cents. He needed to be a free soul and when mother asked him where he was going he'd say, "to wind the clocks at city hall". My father was a volunteer fireman who brought all the men home after fire practice. He'd cook onion rings or french fries, then he'd put music on and sit at his drums and play with the music. He was only 32 when he died and I remember going into his closet and smelling his clothes, wishing he was back again. So I dedicate this song to my father.

Love between a dog and cat

Isn't this the sweetest video you've ever seen of love between a dog and cat? Made me wipe my eyes a little. It will make you smile all over too. Happy weekend.

Wednesday's Free Tarot Class - Judgment

Hi and welcome back to our Wednesday Tarot class. This week we are going to learn about a most interesting card called Judgment. Yes, I know, we don’t like talking about being judged, do we? We feel like we’ve been judged enough, haven’t we? This card is not so much about being judged, as it is a reward for all you and I have gone through. Plus in all actuality we judge ourselves more harshly than others judge us.

Take a look at the Judgment card in your Rider-Waite deck or the card above. It looks like a bunch of people are standing in coffins praying to a huge angel who is blowing a horn and carrying a flag with a red cross on it. What is this all about? This card, like all the others, is filled with symbols. Can you see that flag with the red cross on it as the symbol of help? Who is bringing you aid? A huge angel! Didn’t we meet another huge angel in the Lovers card? Isn’t it neat that God and the Universe brings us help when we need it? We are never alone. Someone once wrote, “Do you have any idea how many Angels you have around you who want to help you with the problems you encounter in life? Most of us feel so alone and have no idea how much unseen help we have available to us. YOU ARE NEVER ALONE!! No matter how sad, stressed or lonely you feel, there is always help for you! And you don't have to join a church or be religious to receive this help either.” In this card we actually get to see a picture of a helping angel calling us to come out of our coffins where we buried our true selves when we tried to be “normal” and follow the rules set by society, our parents and teachers, when we stopped thinking for ourselves. This is the Angel Gabriel blowing his horn to release us from our limitations! This is our reawakening, our arising from the tombs of false beliefs. This is what is meant by being “born again.” We’ve gone through many initiations from the fool to judgment, from zero to twenty. We have walked through fire and storms. Isn’t it about time that we get our rewards, that we are indeed renewed and born again? You have reawakened to who you really are! This wonderful card shows us that by going through all these trials and tribulations we have developed the ability to bring out the best in ourselves, so now we are ready to help others bring out the best in themselves.

Many times people complain about their rough childhood, how they were mistreated, how hard their life has been. They think that if they’d had an easier childhood their lives would be better. For many people this is the opposite. Because they had a rough childhood, experienced pain and hardships, they grew and became more understanding and compassionate. All their suffering has made them become their best selves. The judgment card shows us that after the tower burned up our egos, our newly regenerated child within is now whole and Holy. Our Holy Child now faces the Angel Gabriel looking for direction. No longer do we have to struggle with hardships and pain. Or if we find ourselves beginning to doubt and take on struggle again, we know who to turn to. Know that this card represents the Fool, who, by his efforts and courage has found the secrets of life. If you get this card in a reading, know that any lawsuits you are involved in will turn out positively. Know that your troubles are about to come to an end. Realize that indeed, you do have Angel Guidance that you can turn to at any time. Notice the seven rays that are emanating from Gabriel’s horn. These represent the seven musical notes that correspond to our seven energy chakra’s Notice again naked people on a card. They aren’t ashamed anymore of who they are. Notice the four squares on the red cross flag. This represents each of the elements we need to help us make good decisions: Fire (inspiration and the energy to accomplish what we need), water (feelings and emotions), Air (thinking and communicating so we can discriminate), Earth (manifesting). The number twenty = 2, balance, which is what we have become in our travel through the cards – balanced. The planet Pluto represents the Judgment card. The energy of Pluto is like that of the Hindu God Shiva, which is both the creator and destroyer. Pluto is both the death and rebirth planet. When Pluto comes into our lives it tears things down so we get another chance to create differently. With Pluto there is always transformation. Realize that now you have reached a place where you are using good judgment by knowing your real self, your self within and enjoy its blessings.

Judgments advice:

Have a vision of your ability to create a new you
Know that every thought creates a seed for your future
Know you are truly made of boundless energy and infinite light
Ask yourself how judging yourself and others can be disadvantageous to your growth
Ask yourself how you can hear your angel’s guidance every day

Next week we will discuss the last card in the Major Arcana, the World. After that we’ll have fun exploring the minor cards and the people cards – the page, knight, king, queens. So until we meet again, Angel Hugs,

The Love Letter

I just finished watching this movie on You Tube. I checked it out of the library yesterday but found it on You Tube and I was too lazy to put it in my DVD player so I sat back and watched it on my computer.

Here is a synopsis of the movie:

"Transcending the dimension of time, a love letter found in an antique desk magically seals the fate of two young people linked by destiny, yet separated by more than 100 years. A young man discovers a letter written by a mysterious woman named Lizzie, who lived long ago, and feels compelled to write to her. Correspondence ensues and grows into a love so powerful not even the years can keep them apart. Spanning the Civil War to the present, the perils of Lizzie's war-torn situation threaten her safe passage into the future. Will their love endure the test of time?"

My all time movie was Somewhere in Time, which I still love, but this movie had a better ending. Do you believe in reincarnation and past lives? I've always been fascinated by the subject and even had some past life regressions. After watching Somewhere in Time one night, a story poured out of me that I "channeled" in 4 hours. I sent it to a magazine that published it. I've never been able to channel a story like this since. It was like the story was being dictated through me. Fascinating experience.

If you want I'll put my story on my next blog.

I believe love transcends time. I believe we attract the same souls to us over and over so we can learn more about ourselves and how to love. Dr. Brian Weiss wrote a book called Only Love is Real. It is about this being with and loving the same souls through time.

Has any of you had any experiences of feeling like you "know" or "knew" someone when you first met in this lifetime? If you have, I'd love to hear your story if you feel like sharing it.

I'm blown away right now after seeing this movie. If you want to see it go to: Hallmark The Letter

Wednesday's Free Tarot Class - SUN

Hi and welcome our Wednesday Tarot class. This week we are exploring that life-giving energy card called The Sun. Take a look at your Sun card in the Rider-Waite deck or the card above. Doesn’t it look like this child is saying, “Look Ma, no hands?” This is just about what the child is doing. This child represents the fool with nothing more to hide. Notice he is guiding the horse without using a bridle or reins. This is like the Charioteer in card 7 only the Charioteer was learning how to triumph over his own will. The child in the sun card has gained spiritual mastery and control between the subconscious mind and the conscious. Its like when we learn to play a musical instrument or learn to ski, we use the conscious part of our minds, then when we’ve practiced over and over until we finally “get” it, we let the subconscious mind take over and we can play almost by memory. All along in these series of tarot articles, we have been learning new ways to think, new ideas to work on and if we’ve followed along, we are like the naked child with nothing more to hide. Finally we are beginning to “see the light”, to be freer and more able to guide our lives with less struggle. Check out the red banner that the child is holding in his left (subconscious) hand. The red banner signifies action, vitality and fire energy. The Sun also represents the all-seeing eye.

The picture of the sun looks like a face because quabalists have taught that every human is a miniature solar system. Now that the child has learned spiritual mastery, he needs to share it with others by sharing true knowledge from his center, his heart chakra. When we open up our heart chakra’s people can see our radiant light and begin to look toward us for inspiration. The best way we can help others is to walk our talk instead of preaching and telling others what they should or shouldn’t do. When we get right with ourselves and open our hearts, we are living from our center and we begin to glow. People will say, “you look so different, did you get a new hair do, or is that a new outfit you are wearing?” We are the law of radiance, glowing, awakened and illuminating. People love to be around someone whose words, thoughts and actions are aligned with their Higher Selves and Higher Truths. You have healed your own child within and don’t need to keep your shield up anymore.

Astrologically the sun represents the sun. It rules itself because all life needs the regenerative life force from the sun to exist.

When you get this card in a reading, it means YES!!! It is a card of good news Yes your love will be back, yes you have more energy, health, happiness! If you look at the card again you’ll see a wall with sunflowers growing on top of it. Instead of facing the sun, the sunflowers are facing the child for their full development. We all are miniature suns within us and as we walk through the 19 initiates of the fool and learn each step, we, too can attain Mastery. We can help humanity on the inner planes the way the sun helps with its light on the outer. Remember that Jesus said, “Become as little children”? This doesn’t mean that we have to lose what we’ve learned but be honest and exposed.

How can you and I be more like the Sun card? Can we give up forcing our opinions on others and telling them what they should and shouldn’t do? How do we know what lesson they came into this earth plane to learn? Can we open up our hearts and love instead of judge and seek retaliation? What can we change in our own lives to make ourselves happier and more fulfilled? Have we lost the ability to play? Have we lost our childlike joy in life because we are too dedicated to the world of obligations and shoulds? Why don’t we let that beautiful child within ourselves out to enjoy the rays of the sun again! Let’s begin to be true to ourselves a little at a time until we reach that point where we know who this child is and what talents he/she has. Let’s trust our child within to teach us about who we really are.

The Sun’s Advice:

Find your joy and be excited about life
Find an exercise you enjoy and get your body moving
Get outside and into the sunshine as often as possible
Let the rays of the sun heal you inside and out
Be light and playful, be colorful

Next week we’ll be talking about judgment. Don’t shiver; it’s a pretty neat card. Come back next week and you’ll see. Until then,
Angel Hugs, Jean Maurie
