“If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors. All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people.”

Happy Born Day to Thich Nhat Hanh! And also, to my son, Maxim, and my dear, sweet Grandma Martha with the angels! 0:)
‘Things’ are quite busy around here. Beginning with my son’s birthday this week, I’m moving into the “festive” part of my year with holidays, get-togethers, celebrations, and special occasions arriving one after the other through New Year’s.
Doreen (working with the Angel Tarot deck) offers some great advice for centering and taking stock this week so that we may move ahead with greater presence of mind and spirit.
I’ve personally never worked with the Angel Tarot deck. It has 78 cards rather than 44 (most of the other decks have 44), and the images look beautiful. Check out this week’s video to learn more about Angel Tarot and to see what wisdom the angels have to share about the days ahead.
Have a wonderful, blessed week! I hope everyone enjoyed their Columbus Day holiday!
Doreen is here with our first oracle card reading for the month of October, and she’s brought along a special treat. She is debuting her new Mary, Queen of Angels deck. This deck is meant to be a companion to her recent book of the same name. I read the book while I was on vacation last spring, and I highly recommend it. It was a wonderful inspiration with its messages of feminine power, compassion, and unconditional love.
The Mary, Queen of Angels oracle deck won’t be available until the beginning of next month, and I, for one, am eager to check it out then.
In any case, we get a sneak preview in this week’s oracle card reading. Enjoy!
It’s Doreen’s last oracle card reading for the month of September. Can you believe it? This month flew for me. She addresses that a little bit in her reading, using the Archangel oracle deck.
Hear what she has to say about the upcoming week! Personally, I am grateful for all her encouragement and reassurance for those going through a detox period. I’m working my way through my quarterly, season-change check-in, and I’m glad to know the Archangels have my back.
I am so excited that Doreen is working with her Life Purpose oracle deck this week. Saturday’s new moon was a very favorable one for my fellow Sagittarians and I with regard to our career outlook. Prior to that, things were not lining up for fruitful professional growth, but that’s over now. Farewell to that!
Now, let’s see what Doreen and the angels have to say about what’s next! Two words… crystal. healing.
Last week’s oracle card reading wrapped up with the suggestion to spend time outdoors over the weekend. I happened to take that advice, packing up the fam and heading out to Joshua Tree. It was a great trip for many reasons (I got to see Sean Johnson and the Wild Lotus Band, CC White, Arjun Baba, and Krishna Das!!!), but one of the things that made it the most special for me was being in the desert landscape. I love going to places where the natural environment is different than the one I see in my day-to-day. It gives me a new perspective on things.
So, I guess I don’t have to tell you that I’m stoked that Doreen is using her ‘Healing with the Fairies’ oracle card deck this week. The fairies are nature angels. They back up Mother Earth and work to keep her balanced. Doreen states in the beginning of her reading that the Healing Fairies deck works well for anyone who has environmental issues on the brain.
I also love that the reading for the weekend brings up detoxing and clearing. We are rapidly coming upon the change of the seasons again. I often like to observe solstices and equinoxes with some type of cleanse or detox- whether it be in my diet, my thoughts, my habits, my schedule. Whatever form it might take, I love to ride the energetic wave of ‘change’ that surges around solstices and equinoxes.
I’ll have more to share about that as we roll up to the autumnal equinox, but I love that it came up already. A great reminder and great motivation.
Do you observe the changing of the seasons in some way? What will you be doing to get ready for fall?
For those among you who feel now is a time for rest (healing/nurturing/transition/transformation, etc.), Doreen has brought with her the wisdom of Archangel Michael. He is a protector. He can shelter you from the storm.
Spoiler alert: My favorite part is when she says that the angels acknowledge the work I’ve been doing to open my heart.
“Aww- thanks, angels. Shucks, little me?” (Cut to me working and praying and practicing and singing like I’m training for the Olympics. Like, “Open my heart. Please, help me open my heart.” I backbended like Rocky today.)
Anyway, your angels love you. And Kamelien does, too!
I’m getting at’cha a day late this week since yesterday was my love’s birthday, and I set the whole day aside for him. Ahh… L O V E.
To my great pleasure, I see that Doreen has brought the Magical Unicorns with her this week. Following the trend of the readings for the past few weeks, this week’s spread encourages taking some quiet time this week (she uses the word ‘retreat’) for reflection, healing, and self-care again.
Also, she developed the Magical Unicorns deck to be used by children and to speak to the inner child within each of us. Therefore, this week’s reading carries an undercurrent of spending time with and caring for your inner child.
So that’s it for August, my friends, and fall will be here before we know it. Time for taking stock and making necessary changes once again. I think that this week’s reading suggests that it’s not too early for that work to begin.
Since I will not be teaching this week or next week, I’ll be taking it easy and spending time with my boys as summer wraps up.
Wishing you all the best and sending positive thoughts for any healing or transformation you may be working on right now.
Doreen points out in the beginning of her reading that the Romance Angels deck does not only address romantic or sexual relationships, but also other relationships- like business relationships, friendships, and the all-important relationship with one’s self. They can bring insight to any situation where a little love may move mountains.
I’ve certainly been in the ‘giving-to-receive’ mode with my loved ones recently. Today, I’m celebrating the third birthday of a loved one within a week! And I still have one more to go next week. It has been a great time for learning lessons about the relationship of giving and receiving love. You can’t have one without the other!
See what Doreen and the Romance Angels have to say about love and relationships this week (Hint: It goes something like this, “Love. Forgive. Be loved. Repeat.”).
It’s a new week, and Doreen is here with your weekly guidance from your angels.
Her reading falls right in line with the message that I’ve been hearing over and over lately- Slow down, allow yourself to rest, and spend time praying about what your next step will be. September will be filled with opportunities for action and plowing ahead. Right now, recharge your batteries and be sure you’re prepared when those opportunities present themselves.
Don’t you just love when all of the signals are lining up and pointing in the same direction?
Have a happy and blessed week, everyone. Don’t forget to pause and take good care of yourselves. Doctor’s orders!… or Angel’s, rather.
