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.”).
Since I received my Reiki attunements last month, I have been paying extra attention to my etheric body and my chakras, especially as I am practicing healing on myself and others. As Ramdesh Kaur states in her article about the Siri Gaitri mantra, it is “a way of raising your vibration to the frequency of Divine Healing.”

Can I see by a show of hands who is excited for the summer solstice on Wednesday? It’s one of my favorite days of the year- the longest day of the year! Go, sunshine, go!
I’m still hoping that the gloom dissipates a little so that I could actually see a some sunshine. That would be nice. I taught my class under gloomy skies this morning, but we had a good time all the same. I always love teaching outside on Monday mornings. It sets a good tone for the beginning of the week. Which brings me back to…
Doreen and the angels are here once again to give us guidance about the upcoming week- the official beginning of summer. Such an active, exciting time of the year. See what the angels have to say about it.
Day 4 already! You know what that means? The summer solstice is getting near.
Of course, it also means that we’ve worked our way up to the heart chakra in our little ‘crystal in the spotlight’ marathon. And the stone of the day is…? Aventurine! You may have noticed that both chrysoprase and malachite (our two previous crystal superstars) are also strongly connected to the heart. Green is the color of the heart chakra, so many green stones have an association to the heart chakra.
In fact, aventurine can be a variety of colors, and each of these varieties has its own unique properties. Aventurine has a high quartz content, but it is the presence of other minerals that determines its color. Green aventurine, the type that I picked up in Oklahoma, is the most common variety. The green color is produced by the addition of fuchsite to the quartz crystals.
I think that my favorite quality of green aventurine is that it facilitates connection to the devic kingdom, making it a friend of the gardener. Any friend of the gardener is a friend of mine!
Aventurine is another great protection stone, protecting the heart and regenerating heart energy. It also balances male and female energies, and promotes leadership qualities.
On a physical level, aventurine promotes feelings of well-being and heals parts of the body found in the region of the heart and throat (heart, lungs, adrenals, and sinuses).
“Your way to bring peace to Earth is to be peaceful.”
That’s a nice thought that she ended with as I was beginning this post.
So… it’s been a week again. I even got a text from my mom this weekend like… ‘RU ok? You haven’t posted on your blog lately.’ Hahaha. The truth is that I vowed to step away from the computer more often during Lent. Well, remember my post about the changes we make during Lent prepping the soil for our intentions to grow? It worked a little too well for me, and I haven’t been able to draw myself back to my computer. Working in the garden, preparing for my classes outside in the sun, training for my first 10K, making monkeys. All these little sprouts popped up, and I’m very much enjoying watching them grow. I’ll have great things to share soon. I promise.
But enough about me…
Doreen is here with the fairies!! Ooooh- I love me some fairies. I’ve been calling on them a lot lately in my adventures in gardening. They are the ‘nature angels,’ after all.
This week’s reading continues the theme that has come up over and over again lately… Out with the old, in with the new. And as many times as it comes up, I say thank you again for reminding me. It’s a process. A process of letting go and being receptive to healing. I am so grateful for these wonderful reminders from the angels every week to keep me on track.
I hope there’s inspiration and comfort for you in these readings, too. Enjoy!
“Genuine, complete healing requires honesty with oneself. An inability to be honest obstructs healing as seriously as the inability to forgive. Honesty and forgiveness retrieve our energy- our spirits- from the energy dimension of ‘the past.'”
She really said ‘angst’ & recommended energy healing work. This is officially the 10th week of 2012. We’re deep into things now. It’s really getting real.
This is actually the deck that I gifted to my mother for Christmas, so let’s see what’s in the cards for us this week. Doreen says it’s one of her favorite decks, so what does it have to tell us??
As Doreen suggests, ‘big changes in the week to come.’ We’re approaching the Spring Equinox. And she’s right on target for so many aspects. Personally, I feeled challenged to step up my game in many areas. To acknowledge that we’re beginning a new cycle.
This week, Doreen is working with the Messages from your Angels oracle deck. I have this deck and it’s one of my very favorites.
I love the card for Monday!! I’ve just been preparing and getting inspired for my class today. Thanks very much for the encouragement, Angels! And thanks for the follow-up counsel as well. I think that’s a very important balance for lightworkers, healers, people in general, etc. We must balance our efforts to heal others with time to nurture ourselves.
Whoa there, tiger… welcome to the world of holistic/ayurvedic healing.
Neem has been on my mind for the past few days. Over and over, it has come up- from Paramahansa Yogananda & his sister sitting under a neem tree during his childhood to rejuvenating the hair and scalp to curing sore throats.
Neem is a remedy of many uses, hence its designation as ‘the village pharmacy’. Learn more about neem today to introduce its healing power into your life!!!
