“Have a profound conversation…”

Moon in Libra:

Today as the Disseminating Moon moves through Libra, it’s a wonderful day to take time out to be grateful to for the people in your life.

Exercise: Make a list of the TOP 10 most important people in your life. Who are they and what do they mean to you? Do you need to try harder with them? Why are you grateful to them? Have you let them know lately?

Daily Oracle Reading –

Today i was drawn to pull two cards, and they profoundly compliment each other  “acceptance & See only love”

From my experience when we lighten up and let go of misunderstandings, we stop feeding the energy of anger, and it may bring about a shift or healing. If not, then it sets one free from walking around with the burden of a mind rehashing the hurts, which in turn affects our well being. It allows us to enjoy the presence of the moment.

” See only Love”

The angels gave you this card as a reminder to see yourself, others, and every situation through their eyes. When you focus on love, anything that’s unloving falls away. It’s like turning on a light to diminish the previous darkness. Call upon the angels whenever you need help to elevate your vision to a more loving vantage point. Today try and look past the personalities and egos of others, and see the angel within them (and if this seems difficult ask the angels can help you with this). Today forgive others and yourself. Release anger, hurt, or judgments to the angels, Affirm what you desire, instead of what you fear. release any blockages and focus on what you want more of and less of what you dont have

” Acceptance “

You received this card to help your relationship with yourself and others. The next time you’re tempted to judge yourself or someone else harshly, pray for their health and happiness instead. This more positive route builds self-esteem and harmony, and heals relationships. Remember what you put out wether its words or thoughts get repaid back to you.

Today mini mental to do list is to try and notice how much better you feel when you think positively about yourself and others. Don’t try to control or change others and let go of tendencies to force things to happen and you’ll receive your desired (or better) outcome more peacefully. Remember when one door closes, another one opens.


Emotions are the quickest way to manifesting your desires and dreams so feel the emotion behind your desired manifestations and watch them manifest quicker into your life.


Have a wonderful day

Cutting Cords

What is Etheric Cord Cutting?

“Cords” are energy attachments we form that run back and forth between people, places, objects or situations. These cords are energy structures that connect into our energy bodies, OR it’s the extension of another person’s energy, connecting to you. See everything is made up energy, Your physical body and your spiritual body are made of energetic particles and waves. Unlike your physically body in which you can see and feel energy, some parts of you like your emotions, experiences thoughts and feelings have energy. These unseen energy attachments are usually fear based and unhealthy spiritual connections we form that bind us to the person or object from changing or leaving. These fear based cords intensify and grow larger when to connection to the situation has been developing over a longer period of time, so the largest cords that develop are usually related to parents, siblings, friends, co workers and long-term relationships.

These “cords” are also referred to as etheric cords. Etheric refers to the immediate or first layer in the “human energy field” or aura. We all have etheric cords that we create as ways to connect with things that are around us. These cords act as a direct connection to whom or whatever we have formed an attachment with. They provide us with accurate link to tap into that persons/objects energy source. These spiritual leashes have nothing to with love or positive aspects of relationships. They can no longer connect you in a positive way and become counter productive.

Cords can go both ways, either you can form the attachment or vice versa, someone could of formed an attachment to you. This is the essence of an energetic cord.

Have you ever felt a strong connection with someone or something? Perhaps a traumatic or painful event, or an ex best friend or partner who is no longer in your life, but you get them out of your mind, you still get consumed by the thought of them. You may try everything you can to stop thinking of this person but be unable to. If you are becoming distracted, obsessed, anxious, worried, jealous, or influenced by another, this is because there is still a cord between the two of you, and energetically you are still attached.

Cords can be beneficial, too! These cords include the bonding connection you have when you get into a new relationship or friends? Ever felt that need to text your sister or best friend only to pick up the phone to see a message from them, Or a loving, protecting bond between you and your mother, child or a pet? Etheric cords are essential to life, and as you can see, they are all not bad for you. They can be serving you well or serving you poorly. But if you find yourself obsessing and thinking about a situation or person for days, weeks and sometimes months ands years that is draining your vitality, You can look at energetically cutting the non serving etheric cords. Cutting these cords does not mean that you are ending or abandoning a relationship with a particular person or that you will lose contact. it’s releasing the unhealthy part of the relationship. Removing the negative energy between two people actually allows love to form and grow in a healthy way.

So how can we cut…

Identify what needs cutting. Think of a question or situation that you would like help with. Ask your spirit guides and angels (or any divine being that you connect with) to show you any energy cords. Once identified, visualise the cord connection between you and the person/object, feel how it makes you feel, keep your eyes shut here and imagine or sense what it looks like. Does this energy cord feel heavy, draining? Or does it feel light, healthy and loving? If the cord is unhealthy and draining than its time to release the connection.

If you choose to cut the cord, ask for assistance by your or Guardian Angel, Archangel Michael or Spirit Guide and set the intention by saying aloud or, in your mind.

“ I now cut all cords with unconditional love and compassion that are attached from me to any person, place, situation and object that no longer serves my highest good. Archangel Michael please cut all etheric cords attached to my aura that have been blocking and draining me in all directions of time. Please remove all negativity so I may re -align myself with my divine life path and higher self. Thank you “

Imagine white light surrounding you and a large sward cutting through the cords, release the fear, freeing you from the cords that are draining your energy and vitality. Sit quietly while you and Archangel Michael cuts your cords. He’ll send healing energy through the severed cords to both you and the other person.

Do not send your energy to them in the form of love and healing light, let them heal by there own means, as this could encourage cord reattachment!

There you have it! Happy cord cutting

Full moon in Leo 

Sunday, January 24 2016

“Full Moon in Leo”

Full Moon in Leo: The Full Moon in Leo takes place today, so don’t be surprised if emotions are running high. Leo is already the Drama Queen sign of the zodiac, and the Full Moon, of course, sees feelings running high.

Today’s oracle card.

Eight Of Gabriel

“A great deal of activity. Sudden and immediate results. Important communication.”

“Suddenly things are moving at a very fast pace! All delays are over, and now the sky’s the limit! It may be a little overwhelming, but it also feels good to see your plans moving forward. It could feel as though there are too many things going on at once, so it will be necessary to stay grounded. It’s important that things don’t spin out of control.

New information or messages come your way. It’s a good time to promote yourself or your business. Communication is accurately received by all parties right now.

“Buckle your seatbelt, because things are going to start moving at a very fast rate for you.  Blocks are lifted, and like a racehorse out of the gate, you will find yourself very busy . . . in a good way, such as getting lots of work in your chosen profession.

Do not allow yourself to feel overwhelmed, because this is what you have prayed for. Instead of coming to you in the small increments, the floodgates of answered prayers have opened all at once.

Pace yourself, and don’t get into time urgency or lack mentality. Stay positive, affirm that you have plenty of time, and know that your resources and supplies will appear as you need them.”

Have a great day,

Alkaline Vs Acidic Foods


If anyone reading this is like me and has over indulged over the past few weeks for the silly season and Christmas, you may be feeling (besides very guilty) bloated, lethargic and ” heavy”. Than its time to join me on a mini detox, to help with the sluggish metabolism and digestion. Now if you have been hearing all about this “ alkaline diet” in all the gossip mags, or possibly overheard girls in the tea room at lunch talking about this new “Fad diet” im going to give you a little run down on the basics and why its good for detoxing or making it a new permanent way of eating.

So, what’s the theory?

The theory is that the Ph balances within our body influences whether our bodies host a disease or helps fight off disease. A high acid diet can creates a breeding ground for disease, which can lead to poor health and chronic disease. If you, like me are gaining weight, craving carbs and sugar, wake up or frequently have a foggy brain than you are running too acidic.

The Run Down

This diet makes the body less susceptible to inflammation and disease whilst promoting increased energy, weight loss, stomach upsets indigestion and fights fatigue. It’s recommended that if you consume alkaline foods 80% of the time it can transform your life.

Acidic Vs Alkaline Foods

  • Foods that cause excess acidity include Meat, Dairy, Sugar, poultry, fish, eggs, grains, alcohol and flower ( All my favourite foods).
  • Alkaline foods consist of Vegetables, Fruits, Legumes , Nuts.

When talking about the alkaline diet, it is important to understand the meaning of the pH value. So as nurses ill give you a quick cheat sheet on what ph is. When talking about the alkaline diet, it is important to understand the meaning of the pH value. Put simply, the PH is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline something is. The pH value in the body ranges from 0 to 14

  • 0-7 is acidic. (Think of the acid in the stomach that brakes foods down)
  • 7 is neutral.
  • 7-14 is alkaline (your blood is more alkaline sitting around 7.35)

Now im keeping this simple because I am only taking on components if this diet to detox myself off the Christmas treats I have been scoffing down as of late. But if you want to read all about it and follow the diet down to a fine line here is a link to one of the many websites dedicated to this lifestyle choice Alkaline Diet

Examples of Alkalising Vegetables: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Celery, Cucumber, Kale, Lettuce, Onions, Peas, beans, sweet potato, Peppers, and Spinach, carrots and garlic.

Examples of Alkalising Fruits: Apple, Banana, Berries, rockmelon, Grapes, Melon, Lemon, Orange, Peach, Pear, Watermelon, pineapple and mango.

Alkalising Protein: Almonds, Chestnuts, cashews, and Tofu.

For an extensive list go to Alkaline – Acid food chart

Ready steady…. and juice

As of this week, im starting each morning with a smoothie made with fruits and veggies on the allowed list. Today I mixed up in my nutribullet, Blueberries, watermelon, pineapple, celery, pear, apple and carrot and let me tell you I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of this earlier. It was so refreshing especially in this heat wave (Temperature already reaching 28o at 6 am) I couldn’t of started eating healthier at a better time.

Lunch time I had roasted sweat potato, garlic, carrot and broccoli

And for dinner I had zucchini pasta ( yes made with a red wine and garlic pasta sauce) with a side of cauliflower mash.

Its only been 3 days and I can tell you I already feel lighter, my stomach no longer looks like Uncle Francis beer gut and I found im getting my spring in my step. You don’t have to completely change your lifestyle, I still sit at star bucks before work each morning with my sugar free vanilla latte and read my book, but im choosing not to add my buttery raisin toast to add with it, and now I make a conscious choice when I grab for snacks also when I go food shopping.

However, you might want to consider some of these extra tips to get you back on track while detoxing.

Here we go….


Everything is influenced by the quantity of the water you drink. Getting adequately hydrated will make a huge difference to your health, immunity, energy and vitality. So gulp up, flush those Christmas puddings out! Aim for 6 to 14 cups a day, remember not to overdo it, listen to your body and never force it!


Take it slowly! It is far better to transition and get there slowly, by sticking to it for the long-term rather than being perfect for a day or two and then crashing (which is what I normally do eek)


Supplements are another effective way to assist your body in returning to its healthful state, Supplements are great at replacing lost nutrients with vitamins and minerals to give your immune system a boost.

So good luck and happy detoxing, if you have any handy tips or ideas please comment below.

Things Happy people do.

Things happy people do in the morning

They wake up early.

Waking when the sun rises gives you the opportunity to be more productive and to be more organised, it also reduces stress levels. When you start the day by running around at the last minute trying to get ready it sets a bad vibe and tone for your day ahead.

They express gratitude.

Before your feet hit the ground in the mornings, be thankful, be thankful you are alive and that you have another day to spend on this magnificent planet, be thankful for the air you breathe be thankful you have a body that works. And remember not everyone got to wake up as blessed as you and with such  blessings that we often take for granted. Happy people wake up with a grateful mindset, each and every morning. “Each morning I write in a journal dedicated to being grateful, I write 10 things I am grateful for and how they make me feel, such as I’m grateful for my home and the safety and comfort it provides me, I am grateful that I have a job that pays me more than enough, I am grateful that  I can pay my bills on time, I am grateful that my body is pain free and healthy today, I am grateful for my family and their health and wellbeing.”  As you can see there is many things to be grateful for.

They exercise.

Exercise boosts happiness, by promoting happy chemicals to be released from the brain such as dopamine, serotonin and norepinephrine. These chemicals are known to buffer the effects of stress and can relieve symptoms of depression. Exercise also keeps our waist lines in check and helps reduce the chances of chronic health diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. In today’s busy lifestyle most people work late and have less time to exercise after work, so the best time is in the morning when you have the energy and the motivation.  “I ride my bike to work because it creates a stress-free time and the only time I really get to exercise and enjoy it in my day, working long hours as a nurse I make the effort and get up early, instead of tramming it to work I ride my bike or walk, its great I can listen to an audiobook or my favourite music. I actually get my best ideas on my bike.”

They have breakfast.

Happy healthy people know that this is one of the most important meals of the day.  It kick starts your metabolism and provides you with all the essential energy, nutrients and minerals you are going to need for the day. The key is to plan a good breakfast the night before. You will be able to get some of the things ready so you can save time when you are under pressure during your morning schedule.

They Set daily goals.

Happy people write a list of goals that want to achieve for the day, they also   prioritize what they have to get done, it’s important to get the most difficult task done first as you have fresh train of thought. It’s also a rewarding feeling be able to tick listed tasks off.

Start fresh.

Each morning happy people forgive themselves and others for any mistakes and wrong doings in the past. Happy people move forward and choose to be happy, holding onto grudges and anger only lowers your vibrations and attracts more negative thinking and emotions.


Meditate or start your day with positive affirmations , by doing as simple of five minutes in the morning can change your thinking and help re program your mind to be more positive. Changing your mind set to happy thoughts help raise your vibrations, raising your vibrations helps you to manifest and creative more positive experience in your life.

They are organised.

Organising yourself the night before for the next day can reduce stress in the morning and reduce the chances of you running late. Your morning routine can set your mood for the day so you should ensure it goes as smoothly as possible. This also frees up time for you in sit and enjoy that morning cup of coffee.

See if you could just for one week change up your morning routine , notice how you appreciate the smalls things, and how your day has a different flow to it, and if some of the things listed are to impossible, just  adapt it to fit you .Even if you can adopt even a few of the changes you will notice how easier life becomes and much more happy you feel.

The power of gratitude 

If I could give you the key or a magic potion that could transform your life and make you healthier, happier wealthier , increase productivity and optimism and no cost would you be interested?


The universal law of attraction tells us that we will attract into our lives the things we focus  and think about. Science tells us that an ” attitude of gratitude ” is a good health choice, being more grateful more often can make us an optimistic and happier.

Being grateful can improve life productivity hear are 4 reason why it works…

Gratitude attracts what you want.

Law of attraction states “ask ,and it is given” , and well what a power statement. We attract into our lives what we think about especially things we put deep focus and emotion to. And sense this is  true would you want to attract more things that you are grateful for , not things you count as a disaster in your life. So the rule of thumb is when you are thankful for and count the blessings that you have in your life you change , you are focusing more clearly on what you do want in your life and are attracting more of those things.

Ask, believe and receive…

Expectation is a powerful force, expect the things you want , and don’t except the things you don’t want.

Gratitude reduces negative

It’s more difficult to be negative about situations you face when you are remembering things you are grateful for, one of the quickest ways to improve your mood is to count your blessings. Nothing in the world can bother you or make you negative but your own mind, it’s not that others are not bothering you , its your perception and your mind that decide for you, so change your thoughts change your world.

When something is wrong, sit down and be thankful for the many things that are going right

Gratitude improves relationships.

Saying thank you to the people you love and to the people who provides you services throughout the day makes you more appreciative of them and all they do for you. How many times have you taken for granted the small things your family or friends do for you? Or the lack of appreciation  to the person who serves you at the coffee shop? Or how many people are thankful for the garbage man? Who I can tell you deserve many more gratitude & thanks,  and A higher pay  if you ask me.

Gratitude helps us to learn and problem solve.

Practicing gratitude makes us enter a problem solving situation with a perspective of improvement and opportunity , no longer are you looking what went wrong but what am I grateful for learning and how can I avoid that for next time. You learn that every dark day has a silver lining, being grateful for our situations even if we don’t like something about it, it also allows us to be thankful for the opportunity to learn something new and to grow

Ok, I can hear a lot of you asking well how can I be more grateful more often…
Let’s start off simple,

  • Each day , first thing in the morning write down 10 things you are grateful for.
  • Reflect on each point you listed and feel the emotion and gratitude  if you can write next to the thing your grateful for how it makes you feel, happy joy peace , love,fun, abundant
  • Say thank you to everyone who provides you service
  • Before you go to bed write or say in your head thank you for all the things that went well in your day, and try and see the positive in situations you thought didn’t work out so well.
