I spent many years seeking out advice from others and applying their advice, only to have it all blow up in my face. I’ve learned that people only see things through the lens of their own experience.
Having compensated, I now fall into the trap of trying to figure everything thing out myself. When I have something weighing on my mind, I often feel like I need to solve it myself. Our minds are wonderful and amazing tools, but they are reliant on the things we have learned, experiences that we’ve had, and how we interpreted them. That means that if we haven’t worked on our traumas and shadow, our minds are filtering everything through them. That lead me to feel like I couldn’t even trust myself.
I have recently started to renew my faith and have been attending church on Sunday. Part of the message this week was about being a partner with God to create your life. I’m sure you’ve all heard the quote, “God won’t give you more than you can handle.” Pastor Joe says there is a word that is missing at the end of that quote, and I believe it too…God won’t give you more than you can handle together. God wants you to confide in him, to give him your worries and fears and to ask for his assistance.
I believe all spiritual roads lead to the same place, so if you cannot relate to my Christian God, apply the message to your creator. Universal wisdom is just that. Universal.
When you have something weighing on your heart, instead of letting it roll around and create doubt and fear in your mind, ask for help. Meditate, pray, talk it through with your creator, and open yourself up to receiving divine assistance.
Yesterday, I had a gentle nudge from the universe to take my normal route backwards while walking the dogs. These gentle nudges come in the form of urges or sudden inspiration to do something, go somewhere, talk to someone, etc.
We got a good ways into the walk, when all of a sudden an albino squirrel jumped out in front us on the sidewalk. There was only one other time that I have seen one. It was like a little gift, a piece of magic and wonder given just to me and my dogs. There was no one else around, just us and the squirrel.
It’s little things like that that give me the courage to trust my intuition. I have recognized lately how much courage it takes to follow these inspirations. I have always been a thinker, someone who analyzes everything. I depend on my logic and my mind to understand my world, but all that is based on my limited experience.
However, tapping into my intuition gives me far greater knowledge and universal wisdom, but only if I allow that. That small little squirrel is helping to teach me listen to and trust, and for that I am grateful.
I encourage you to follow those nudges. Surrender control of the outcome, and allow the universe to bring you something more than what you can imagine. I definitely didn’t imagine seeing a white squirrel when I started walking the dogs yesterday.
In meditation yesterday I was guided to stop hoping and start trusting. This lead me to really start thinking of the two words/concepts. In Merriam Webster’s dictionary hope and trust are synonyms of each other and are often used interchangeably. So, what is the difference? Here is what I discovered:
First for me there is a difference in the energy of the two words.
Let’s look at hope first. There is an expectation that something will happen, or a wish for it to be. For me there is an uncertainty with hope though. Doubt has somehow crept into it. This was a sad realization for me. In my daily life I often rely on hope that things will get better or that I will get a good parking spot at the grocery store. It seems like wishful thinking…almost.
Don’t get me wrong I still feel like there’s a place for hope. You must always have hope in your heart for the things you desire. There is a light hearted and playful nature to hope that trust doesn’t have, and I believe that is important too.
For the big things like believing in yourself, manifesting, and choosing the right path for your life, that should be the job of trust.
Trust implies there is a force or person responsible. There is no doubt involved with trust. It is proven and experienced. An example is that I know that my sister will take good care of my babies, like there were her own. I trust her.
When I got the message yesterday that I needed to stop hoping and start trusting. I realized that I wasn’t trusting myself, or God. I was hoping that things would work out for me. I was putting out expectations, but not really trusting that they would be fulfilled. There has been an element of doubt all along.
Trust has always been a hard thing for me from a very early age. Many of us have come from broken homes and bad situations that have broken our trust. It requires a leap of faith, sometimes quite literally. Trusting yourself would be the best place to start. After that consider trusting the source of all things. I call him God, but he goes by many names. That is where I have decided to start!
Thank you for coming along on this journey with me.
Today, I was going along my merry way, running errands and every single place I went I saw a license plate in the parking lot with the numbers 777.
I see repeating numbers quiet a bit. The universe is always sending me messages this way. Most people throughout their day see numbers everywhere: License plates, odometers, receipts, digital clocks, timers, addresses etc.
At one point I was going to go get myself a coffee at a place near to one of my stops. When I got there I discovered it wasn’t there anymore. Lucky for me, I knew there was another one close by and I felt the urge to take the extra few minutes to go there. When I got there, another 777. I am so grateful that for these messages. They are simple really, and something I would have chalked up to coincidence five years ago.
If you wonder what 777 means for me, and why it was such and impactful message let me explain. To me 777 is like a hug from the universe, and confirmation that I am on the right path. It means that the changes I have been making in my life through healing and personal growth, are soon to be rewarded in a grand way. That day, it was exactly what I had been questioning, and the universe provided me the answer in a fun way.
If you’re interested to find out what repeating numbers or angel numbers could mean to you, you can google it, there are many sites out there that explain. Once you do, I encourage you to meditate on it as there are lots of different ideas about what they mean and they can get confusing and convoluted. If that happens, like it did for me, let your own intuition be your guide.
When I first started looking at angel numbers, 777 always had a lucky connotation. I mean we’ve all seen slot machines with 777 across them at least in movies…However, it’s changed over the years to what I believe now.
Allowing messages from the universe to come through number synchronicities is one of the easiest ways to let the universe guide you. It doesn’t have to stop at seeing consecutive numbers either. You might see your birthdate or someone else’s, or some other numbers repeating a lot. If it means something to you and is associated with a feeling, then the message is for you.
One of the Universal Laws is that cycles are a natural part of the universe.
Cycles can be seen outwardly, like in nature, but we can also see them in our own lives. We have them in relationships, in work, and in our behaviors.
Yesterday before bed I was getting a nudge from my intuition to read a journal entry from the same day 2 years ago. I was surprised by what I read and a little sad.
In this entry from a couple of years ago I was writing about a situation that I am going through right now with the same people! I’ve been working through some really hard things these last few months, and having some really tough realizations about my behavior patterns.
The most interesting thing about this is that I was getting the same advice from my intuition. I think the reason I was guided to this entry was to show me, this is a pattern and it’s time to change it. What I chose the last time, brought me right back to the same place. It’s time to break that cycle, learn the lesson, start a new way of living, and a heathy behavior pattern.
Do you find yourself repeating old patterns in relationships, at work, or in your behaviors? You will probably continue to live out these cycles again and again until you take the time to dig in there and do the healing work. If you want something different, you have to do something different.
This is a message that I channeled this morning during meditation. I was preparing for a collective tarot reading on my youtube channel. If you want to check that out, the link is below my picture on the right.
The topic was, What does the collective need to know to move us to the best possible outcome for all. Here’s the message.
Teach your children how to cope with changes. Show them by your own actions how to ground their energy; to get out of their own mind and act in a loving and self empowered way. Teach them how to be kind to themselves. If you have not done this work yourself, then you must learn it, so that you can teach the next generation. This is imperative.
Hurt people who have not healed will hurt the people that they love. This is not because they are doing so intentionally, but because they are disconnected from themselves.
To find God you must go through yourself for God resides inside of you. You and I are connected through the heart. We are all one. The logical mind likes to keep you separate from the whole because it only knows your experience, but your heart has the knowledge of universal wisdom.
Teach your children to tap into this source so that they can make the highest and best choices for themselves and the whole of humanity. That is how we heal the planet. This comes from love and connectedness, not through division.
We all play a part, and that is where you will find your own uniqueness, your specialty if you will.
Teach your children to follow that inner compass and they will have fulfilling and abundant lives. Show them that love is found within and their hearts will always be full, and they will give of themselves freely.
Just a bit of advice from my spirit guides this morning in meditation that I thought would be good to share. I have heard this message so many times and in so many ways, but today, it just clicked for me.
Side note, we will keep getting the same message over and over until we are ready to receive it and incorporate it into our lives. The universe is amazing in that way. It’s really beautiful. When your confused, you can trust that the clarity will come when you’re in the right vibration to hear it.
Okay, onto the advice of today.
Often, people become overwhelmed by a dream because they think they need to have it all figured out before they start. The universe is not asking you to have it all figured out, all you need to do is have a destination and start walking in that direction with intent. Then, trust that the universe will provide you with the opportunities to make your dream a reality.
Sometimes we don’t know what we want, and in those moments, just start walking towards things that bring you fulfillment and joy. Things that brought you happiness as a child, that still bring you happiness as an adult is a good place to start. When you get into the flow, the clarity will come.
Just start and you will be met with the opportunities to get you there.

Wipe the slate clean everyday to achieve the highest vibration. Meditation is the key. Check your energy, your body, and determine what is being held onto and where you are meeting any kind of resistance. Everyday be committed to this process of cleansing and clearing your energy field. The results will be freeing. You will have more energy in your physical body as well as your light body.
Valuable clarity and insight will come as a result. Chaos is created in your mind, but you will be able to quiet this chaos by cleansing and clearing the feelings and emotions that are stuck. State what you are feeling aloud, or write about it in your journal. By getting it outside yourself into the 3D realty, you will start the process of moving this stuck energy. You will send it out to be released.
If you hold it inside it will just be picked up by your mind and feed your self limiting beliefs. It will hold you hostage in logic and fear. Get it out in whatever healthy way you can. Self expression is the best way to get it moving and purge it from your system.
You see, your body and your soul must work together. It doesn’t work if one takes control and bypasses the other. They have to work together.
Your soul will tell you how to fix what is trapped in your body, if only you would listen before there is too much damage inflicted upon it. Your physical form has a shelf life. Your soul is infinite.
This is a channeled message from one of my spirit guides.
“You are a divine being of light and love. As such you will always have a connection with spirit. Sometimes you will feel this stronger than other times.
You must watch your vibes and make sure that you are protecting your connection by staying grounded. Do something physical, mindful, or spiritual to tap into the energy of love and light.
You are a receiver and a transmitter of energy. If you are not tapped into the divine source energy, following your intuition then you are transmitting energy from your ego/logical mind. Full of fears and lower energies.
Be very mindful of what you consume, both physically and mentally, for it all has an impact on your vibration. And, because we are one, of the collective vibration By taking care of yourself, you create a healthier consciousness for all.”
