If you are a parent, business person, student, or a combination of any of these, chances are you feel like you need superpowers in order to get everything done on your busy “to do” list. I know I sure do! But did you know that some of us indeed do have superpowers? Many of you reading this blog are Earth Angels* and as such, you possess certain “superpowers”.
Some Earth Angels, for example, have the power of invisibility. This means you can slip in and out of places and situations relatively unnoticed. The downside to this though is that you’re often ignored by wait staff in restaurants and even loved ones. But every Earth Angel has something amazing that he or she is good at.
Here are a few examples of Earth Angel super powers: Healing, Manifesting, Breaking or Fixing electronics, Animal communication, Miraculous gardening abilities, Weather magic, Knowing instantly whether someone is being honest, Foreseeing the future. There are other super powers too. Spend time thinking about yours. Observe yourself with others or out in nature and notice what comes very easily and magically to you. That’s your superpower!
Your superpower is a skill that you brought from heaven to help with your life mission. Some of you are healers, others might have a talent for predicting or influencing weather which shows your purpose involves protecting people from major storms.
Have fun figuring out your superpower and share below. I’d LOVE to hear what special talent you are using to help the world be a better place. ion, Miraculous gardening abilities, Weather magic, Knowing instantly whether someone is being honest, Foreseeing the future.
There are many others as well. Spend time today thinking about what yours is. Observe yourself with others or out in nature and notice what comes very easily and magically to you. That’s your superpower!!
Your super power is a skill you brought from heaven to help with your life mission. EX. if you can easily hear the voices of animals, then your life purpose involves animal communication.

Gazing out my window very early this morning I took in the glorious energy of the full moon. I stood there transfixed for several minutes then realized something was terribly wrong. After several days of warm-er weather, I was sooo disappointed to see SNOW on the ground! Instantly, my heart dropped. Living in Calgary, Canada I am no wimp when it comes to winter and cold temperatures but I am sure you will agree that this winter has just gone on long enough! In fact, I have been blaming this never-ending winter for my recent apathy. It’s been awful! For the last several weeks I felt like I totally lost my mojo, ya know?
Normally, I would turn to my crystals or give myself some Reiki to balance out my chakras but in this case, I didn’t even consider using those tools. Instead, I went for a haircut. That’s right, just a plain old regular haircut. However, THIS time when my fabulous stylist Tami asked me what I would like to have done, I said, “cut it off”.
I was a little shocked when I heard the words coming out of my mouth because I haven’t changed my hairstyle in YEARS. And not only that, but I hadn’t even been CONSIDERING making a change. Luckily, I have gotten really good at trusting my inner guidance so I just went with it. The result? I felt FAB-U-LOUS dah-ling!! Smashing, in fact. But the coolest thing ever was that I immediately felt my energy shift! I started to come back to life!!
Now that the spark was ignited, I just needed to turn it into a raging inferno of motivation and new excitement so I could feel INSPIRED again. So how did I do that? I went shopping for new “underthings”. Sorry if this is TMI but there’s something about what you wear beneath your clothes that shifts your whole perspective and the energy you project out into the world. If you don’t believe me, just watch a few episodes of TLC’s What Not To Wear. Clinton and Stacy are always on someone’s case to buy a new bra for God’s sake. And they are right. When you have the right foundational garments, you look and FEEL better. And when you FEEL better, your energy shifts and then voila – the magic happens! Things start happening in your life. Your motivation returns, and you realize your mojo is back safely where it belongs.
So if you are suffering from the “way-to-long winter” doldrums, maybe all you need is a trip to the salon (or Victoria’s Secret). The best way to know for sure is to follow your heart and your angels’ whispers. They will never steer you in the wrong direction. Happy Spring!

As I sit down to write this week’s note, I am breathing a huge sigh of relief! If you recall last week’s message I was freaked out by a furry critter that found its way into my home! Well, I am now happy to report that almost as soon as he moved in, he was OUT! And since then, we have been free and clear of all signs of unwanted house guests. However, there’s a second part to this story that I haven’t shared with you yet.
After the pest management guy left last Tuesday afternoon, I was crouching down to thoroughly scour and sanitize my floors. As I stood up, my left knee partially locked. When I straightened it, I heard a loud POP and thought to myself. “That can’t be good!”
I didn’t feel any pain initially but by evening, the throbbing, swelling and compromised mobility began. Long story short, I tore the meniscus in my knee. And you know what? There’s only one thing sucks more than that. And that’s when you’re a RUNNER with a race coming up and you tear the meniscus in your knee!!!
I would like to say that I was all “roll with the punches” about this situation but the truth is,I was MAD! I kept asking, “Why me? Why NOW?!” I was completely baffled because running is like meditation to me. I kept wondering “why would the angels take something away from me that keeps me healthy, happy and motivated to do the work that I do?”
After stewing about this for a few days, I finally got the message “Just ask”. Well duh, it was so obvious that I can’t believe it took me so long to figure it out. So rather than getting bogged down in anger, or feeling sorry for myself, I asked my angels to give me some guidance on all of this.
It turns out, that when they want you to know something, they will send the message over and over. Sometimes though, we aren’t so great at listening so they have to get louder and louder. In my case, I was being pulled in many directions at once which was impacting my ability to fully focus on my path and purpose. So guess what? When you CAN’T do something, it sort of forces you to get good and clear on what you CAN do.
So while I cannot just lace up the shoes and hit the road for a run, I can use this opportunity to spend more time in meditation and prayer. Not only will I get better insights on ways I can be of service in this world but the time off from running will also allow me to put more into my work and wrap up some unfinished projects.
Next time you find yourself wondering “WHY ME?”, surrender to the process. Know that your angels have your best interests at heart and they are merely taking you in the direction you need to go in to fulfill your path and purpose. And if you need more clarify on what that is, just ask.
Until next time,
My apologies that you are receiving this week’s blog post a little late but trust me, I have a good reason!
It happened like this…at 10:30 pm this past Tuesday night. I was standing in my kitchen powering off my phone and getting ready to head up to bed when out of the corner of my eye, I saw something scurry from under my fridge and into the small opening between the dishwasher and the cabinet.
I wanted to scream, run away, and throw up all at the same time! You see I’m obsessive/compulsive when it comes to cleanliness and the thought of a MOUSE (or mice) in my house is enough to send me into full blown hysterics.I can pretty much deal with anything but this was pushing me WAYYY out of my comfort zone.
I stood there dumbfounded wondering if I had actually seen what I thought I had seen. And that’s when the critter decided to give me a second show. He carefully crept out from his hiding space, realized he wasn’t alone, and high-tailed it right back where he came from. I had come face to face (literally) with my worst nightmare!!!
I stayed up till almost 2 am that night maniacally cleaning and putting all my food away in sealed containers. I wanted to stay up all night to catch that critter but I was just too exhausted. So I filled up the opening by the dishwasher with paper towels doused in peppermint oil (thank you Google for giving me instant access to “mice deterrents”), convinced myself the pungent smelling peppermint oil would make it stay put till morning, and trudged off to bed hoping to get maybe a couple of hours of sleep.
The next day, the pest control guy showed up and after he went outside to take a look around I went into full blown meltdown. The tears started and I just lost it! You see, we just built our dream home and we’ve only been living here 9 months. The thought of pests invading it, and bringing disease and destruction with them, was just too much for me to handle.
That’s when I heard them….my angels whispering “Just breathe.” I often teach this tool to my clients during angel therapy sessions and this time the angels stepped in to remind me to practice what I preach. It seems crazy that something as simple as stopping and taking several deep breaths could help in a situation like this but it really did. I took in air like I had just surfaced from far beneath the ocean and my lungs were about to burst. I sent that breath down throughout my body to calm me and then I thanked my angels and asked them for their help. I realized that in the grand scheme of things, this wasn’t that bad. Nobody was sick. Nobody was dying. I could do this.
We have been 3 days without any signs of the critter(s) and had very little evidence of their presence to begin with. So I believe there may have only been one rogue Mickey Mouse who “squeaked” in somehow.
Next time you are facing something you fear, something overwhelming, or you have come face to face with YOUR worst nightmare, stop what you are doing and just BREATHE.
Until next time,

I hear it all the time, “I hate my job but….” Or, “I know this person isn’t right for me, but….” Or, “I know I am meant to help others and be of spiritual service, but…” When someone says “but” what they really mean is “I’m afraid.” What they are really saying is:
- “I hate my job but I am afraid to quit before I find a new one because I don’t know if I will find a new one.”
- “I know this person isn’t the right one for me, but I’m afraid that if I end the relationship I won’t find anyone else and I am afraid/don’t like to be alone.”
- “I know that I am meant to be of spiritual service but if I start a spiritually-based career I am afraid of what others will think of me, including my family. They helped me through school financially and now I am afraid I will be letting them down because they don’t understand/support my new career choice.”
The “but” is what holds us back from moving forward in a direction we know or feel we are meant to. The knowing and feeling is our internal guidance system (also known as Divine Guidance). But these days, most people don’t acknowledge this guidance even though we receive it each day, every day. And if they do acknowledge it, they are reluctant to trust it enough to actually act on it.
What ends up happening in the situations listed above is a heart/head tug-of-war. The heart tells you to move forward in a way that feels uncomfortable to you, so instead of taking a closer look at the situation/opportunity, you let your head talk you out. That keeps you in your warm and cozy comfort zone.
Well, nobody ever achieved anything great by staying in their comfort zone, my friends. Okay, so I might have “borrowed” that quote but it’s definitely true!
Next time you feel afraid, or fearful, about moving forward, smile! Be happy! This is a big fat sign that you are on the right track!!! When my clients tell me they are afraid I say, “GREAT!” Then they look at me funny and I have to explain that fear is a good thing because, like I said, it means they are on the right track. It’s tangible proof that you are tuning into your inner guidance — you finally HEAR and FEEL it! YAY!!
The neat thing is, once you tune in, you’ll want to keep working with it more and more and you will wonder how you ever got along without it! I know, because although it wasn’t always so, I now use my inner compass all the time and it’s what helped me to find my true path and purpose in life and reach true fulfillment.
So next time you feel the fear creeping in, take a deep breath and go kick some “but”!

I have just returned from a magical two weeks on the island of Maui in Hawaii! For several weeks leading up to my trip I kept hearing from others who had been there about how Maui gets into your blood. So many people who visit, come back time and time again, if not eventually move there!
And now that I have been there myself, I can completely see why!! It’s not just that the scenery is lush, gorgeous and tropical. It’s not the sun, sand, surf or the friendly people but it’s the spirit of Aloha. You can FEEL IT!
The word “aloha” is used everywhere in Hawaii by locals and visitors alike but not everyone stops to really think about what it means. I want to share with you the magic and power of Aloha as explained so perfectly here by Serge Kahili King (copyright by Serge King 2003).
You may copy, share and post this document as often as you wish on condition that it not be sold. For a free copy in booklet form, email your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.
In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much more than just “hello” or “goodbye” or “love.” Its deeper meaning is “the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo).”
As you share this energy you become attuned to the Universal Power that the Hawaiians call mana. And the loving use of this incredible Power is the secret for attaining true health, happiness, prosperity and success.
The way to tune into this Power and have it work for you is so simple that you might be tempted to pass it off as being too easy to be true. Please don’t let yourself be fooled by appearances. Take the time to try it out.
This is the most powerful technique in the world, and although it is extremely simple it may not prove easy, because you must remember to do it and you have to do it a lot. It is a secret which has been given to humanity over and over again, and here it is once more in another form. The secret is this:
Bless everyone and everything that represents what you want!
That’s all there is to it. Anything that simple, however, does need some explanation.
To bless something means to give recognition or emphasis to a positive quality, characteristic or condition, with the intent that what is recognized or emphasized will increase, endure or come into being.
Blessing is effective in changing your life or getting what you want for three reasons: First of all, the positive focus of your mind stirs up the positive, creative force of the Power of the Universe. Secondly, it moves your own energy outward, allowing more of the Power to come through you. Thirdly, when you bless for the benefit of others instead of directly for yourself, you tend to bypass any subconscious fears about what you want for yourself, and also the very focus on the blessing acts to increase the same good in your life. What is so beautiful about this process is that the blessing you do for others helps them as well as you.
Blessing may be done with imagery or touch, but the most usual and easy way to do it is with words. The main kinds of verbal blessing are:
Admiration – This is the giving of compliments or praise to something good that you notice. E.g., “What a beautiful sunset; I like that flower; you’re such a wonderful person.”
Affirmation – This is a specific statement of blessing for increase or endurance. E.g., “I bless the beauty of this tree; blessed be the health of your body.”
Appreciation – This is an expression of gratitude that something good exists or has happened. E.g., “Thank you for helping me; I give thanks to the rain for nourishing the land.”
Anticipation – This is blessing for the future. E.g., “We’re going to have a great picnic; I bless your increased income; Thank you for my perfect mate; I wish you a happy journey; May the wind be always at your back.”
In order to gain the most benefit from blessing, you will have to give up or cut way down on the one thing that negates it: cursing. This doesn’t mean swearing or saying “bad” words. It refers to the opposite of blessing, namely criticizing instead of admiring; doubting instead of affirming; blaming instead of appreciating; and worrying instead of anticipating with trust. Whenever any of these are done they tend to cancel out some of the effects of blessing. So the more you curse the harder it will be and the longer it will take to get the good from a blessing. On the other hand, the more you bless the less harm any cursing will do.
Here, then, are some ideas for blessing various needs and desires. Apply them as often as you like, as much as you want.
Health – Bless healthy people, animals, and even plants; everything which is well made or well constructed; and everything that expresses abundant energy.
Happiness – Bless all that is good, or the good that is in all people and all things; all the signs of happiness that you see, hear or feel in people or animals; and all potentials for happiness that you notice around you.
Prosperity – Bless all the signs of prosperity in your environment, including everything that money helped to make or do; all the money that you have in any form; and all the money that circulates in the world.
Success – Bless all signs of achievement and completion (such as buildings, bridges, and sports events); all arrivals at destinations (of ships, planes, trains, cars and people); all signs of forward movement or persistence; and all signs of enjoyment or fun.
Confidence – Bless all signs of confidence in people and animals; all signs of strength in people, animals and objects (including steel and concrete); all signs of stability (like mountains and tall trees); and all signs of purposeful power (including big machines, power lines).
Love and Friendship – Bless all signs of caring and nurturing, compassion and support; all harmonious relationships in nature and architecture; everything that is connected to or gently touching something else; all signs of cooperation, as in games or work; and all signs of laughter and fun.
Inner Peace – Bless all signs of quietness, calmness, tranquility, and serenity (such as quiet water or still air); all distant views (horizons, stars, the moon); all signs of beauty of sight, sound or touch; clear colors and shapes; the details of natural or made objects.
Spiritual Growth – Bless all signs of growth, development and change in Nature; the transitions of dawn and twilight; the movement of sun, moon, planets and stars; the flight of birds in the sky; and the movement of wind and sea.
The previous ideas are for guidance if you are not used to blessing, but don’t be limited by them. Remember that any quality, characteristic or condition can be blessed (e.g., you can bless slender poles and slim animals to encourage weight loss), whether it has existed, presently exists, or exists so far in your imagination alone.
Personally I have used the power of blessing to heal my body, increase my income, develop many skills, create a deeply loving relationship with my wife and children, and to establish a worldwide network of peacemakers working with the aloha spirit. It’s because it has worked so well for me that I want to share it with you. Please share it with as many others as you can.
How to Enhance Your Power to Bless
There is a technique practiced in Hawaii which enhances your power to bless by increasing your personal energy. It is a simple way of breathing that is also used for grounding, centering, meditation and healing. It requires no special place or posture, and may be done while moving or still, busy or resting, with eyes open or closed. In Hawaiian the technique is called pikopiko because piko means both the crown of the head and the navel.
1. Become aware of your natural breathing (it might change on its own just because of your awareness, but that’s okay).
2. Locate the crown of your head and your navel by awareness and/or touch.
3. Now, as you inhale put your attention on the crown of your head; and as you exhale put your attention on your navel. Keep breathing this way for as long as you like.
4. When you feel relaxed, centered, and/or energized, begin imagining that you are surrounded with an invisible cloud of light or an electro-magnetic field, and that your breathing increases the energy of this cloud or field.
5. As you bless, imagine that the object of your blessing is surrounded with some of the same energy that surrounds you.
ALOHA WORKS – WORLDWIDE
I thought I had it all: two wonderful children, a loving husband, an attractive and comfortable home, financial security so I could stay at home and raise my kids, a lifestyle that included travel and little extras and the blessing of health for everyone in my family. And yet, there I was, sitting at my kitchen table one cold Calgary winter’s day with tears streaming down my face and wondering if my life had any meaning at all. How on earth did I get to this place?
I knew having children was not going to be a walk in the park. I am not that naive. Friends and relatives had all shared their stories of sleep deprivation, diaper explosions, sibling rivalry and the like but nobody ever, not even once, talked about what really HAPPENS when you have children. You become invisible.
We wear so many labels in life. We are someone’s ‘mom’, someone’s ‘wife’, maybe even someone’s ‘employee’ but have you asked yourself, “who am I”?
My crisis that day at the kitchen table was rooted in not knowing who I truly WAS. I felt so very blessed to be able to be at home with my children but yet I felt there was something MORE I was meant to do with my life. I easily said goodbye to my years in the public relations and marketing world of corporate Canada because it wasn’t who I was. In fact, I was so very happy to leave that all behind. Yet, in shedding that, it created space for something new to take root inside of me. That ‘something’ was the desire and drive to be of service to others. I knew I was meant to teach and help others, however not knowing how I was supposed to accomplish this, was what was eating me up inside.
Since then, I have talked to many women who went through similar situations. They were so disconnected from their true path and purpose in life, that they became numb, depressed, and even felt hopeless. As desperate as they were to find answers, their numbness made them literally incapable of connecting to their inner wisdom and guidance to show them the way.
Have you been here yourself?
It’s sad really, that humanity has gotten away from remembering that we all carry an internal GPS that guides us in the right direction. Some people call it an inner knowing, Divine guidance, intuition or our gut feelings. Whatever you call it, it’s all the same thing and it’s available to each and every one of us 24/7. But in our numbed out, overwhelmed, super stressed lives, we can’t see the forest for the trees. We wouldn’t recognize our guidance if it jumped up and bit us in the rear. In fact, that’s almost what it took for me to recognize and follow my own inner compass. Instead, I started seeing numbers. Well, the number 11 to be exact and 11:11 or 1:11 or 4:11, 6:11 etc. to be even more exact. Every time I happened to glance at a clock, or notice a license plate zoom by me, it was always the same…that number 11. I thought I was starting to lose my mind! I even asked my hubby if he was noticing this too and he looked at me like I had three heads!
And here’s where the story gets even stranger. While this was happening to ME, thousands of miles across the country it was also happening to my MOM! One day, while speaking with her on the phone, she said she had to figure out why she was seeing 11s all the time. Well you can imagine that the hair on the back of my neck stood up and I eagerly shared my story too!
Long story short, it was the magic number 11 that got my attention and started me on the road to discovering myself, my TRUE self. Yet, more importantly, it taught me how to tune into my inner guidance and find my true path and purpose. Today, I use my inner compass all the time and I have finally fulfilled my burning desire to be of service to others.
As an Angel Therapy Practitioner® I get to help others who are wearing the shoes I once wore. Nothing brings me more happiness than when I teach those who feel disconnected from their path and purpose in life how to recognize, and rely on, their inner guidance so they can move forward again with clarity, confidence and enthusiasm.
