2014: Year of the Green Horse

Saturday, January 11th, 2014

As the year of the snake culminates a year of shedding,  there’s a lot of rawness and bruises in the air.  The task ending in 2013 is the job of releasing everything that no longer serves the new you that’s been struggling to emerge from the skin of the past.  January 2014 is the final month of the Snake when whatever you needed to release that you haven’t yet, will be exacerbated until you do.

On the final day of January, the Green Horse takes over from the Snake and, in oriental thought, green is the element of wood which means structure is an issue this year.  Numerologically 2014 is a 7 year, a year of testing.  Therefore, the Green Horse is likely to test your life structures and draw your attention to any gap that exists between the vast fertile fields of your creative imagination and the life you are living.

In 2014 we’re being taken for quite a ride by the Green Horse’s need to stretch far and wide into the fullest life territory you can rightfully claim as your own. This means issues of boundaries, borders and broad expanses will come up repeatedly, to challenge your ability to run free as well as settle down. How do borders and boundaries combine with freedom and dreams? That’s what we must explore in the coming year. Like humans the Horse is a contradictory animal, and must learn to steer a course that is seldom straight and narrow, but more often runs on paradox. Until you gain inner spiritual strength from wrestling with this paradox, you’re likely to remain driven by false riders who dig their spurs into your ribs and take you places you don’t really need to go.

Our spirit guides and angels are around us all of the time.  They are there to help us whenever they can.  The only thing necessary to receive their help is that we have to ask for it.  They cannot interfere with our free will so we have to ask for help.


In the middle of the night when you wake up with that nagging question you can’t seem to figure out…ask your Angels and Guides for advice.  When you need to make a phone call but are afraid you will not know what to say or how to say it…ask your Angels and Guides to help you.  When you want to pick out the perfect gift for someone, when you’ve misplaced something, when you want to plant a garden but you’ve never done it before, when you want to read a book but there are so many you don’t know which one to choose or you want to write a story but don’t know what to write about…..ask your Angels and Guides to guide you.


It doesn’t matter how big or small the situation seems to you, ask for help and you will be amazed at how quickly you receive a response from them.  The key, however, is to become open and receptive to guidance.


Learn to listen, look, sense or feel for the answer.  An idea will come to you, or a song will start playing on the radio with the words you need to hear. You might see an ad in a magazine or a friend will call you on the phone and say something that will trigger an answer for you.  You might feel a gentle nudge to look in a drawer or a closet where something you misplaced will be found.


It’s so much fun to ask for help and then go out into your day with the anticipation that the answer will come, sometimes when or where you least expect it.  That’s why you have to remain open and alert so you will recognize the guidance when it comes.


When I sat down to write this article, ideas and inspiration began flowing just a few minutes after asking my angels and guides for help.  Being open and receptive keeps the energy flowing from one realm to another more freely and effortlessly.


Just remember, you have to ASK.

Webster says:  “the quality of environment that makes vision possible;  the absence of darkness;  rays issuing from some illuminating body, as the sun, fire or a lamp;  anything used for illumination such as a lamp or candle.”

Everything is Energy.  Energy is Everything.  I AM ENERGY, therefore, I AM EVERYTHING.  I AM the sun, the fire, the lamp and the candle.  I AM the illuminating body,  I AM LIGHT AND SO ARE YOU.  We are all LIGHT Beings within a human body, illuminating our world.

It’s in the remembering of this that brings it into awareness, and it’s through awareness that we can shift our perceptions and create change.



Take a Good Look

It’s time to take a look back and think about all of the changes you have been through in your lifetime, especially the ones that elude logical understanding.  Be amazed and delighted at those “shifting” times and how they have helped you to arrive exactly where you are today.

We are all currently in a strong transitional phase.  Our realizations today will be instrumental in making the choices that will re-define our lives in years to come.  We are here on Earth now because we have all chosen to be here.  We are the catalysts for this “Great Shift.” Open your awareness and lift the “veil” of unconsciousness.  Remember your purpose for Being Here Now.

Take a good look:



Who Are You?

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

“I AM ______.” Whatever you fill in the blank with defines who you are. How do you define yourself? You are who you THINK you are. You are who you DECLARE you are. You are who you AFFIRM you are.

Every time you answer the question “How are you?”, you are defining, declaring, and affirming to the Universe who you are choosing to be in that moment. Consciously choose wisely.
