Embracing Uncertainty

I’m nosy.

There. I said it. I’m really nosy! I hate being out of a loop or kept in the dark, I hate not knowing what’s going on an what’s going to happen next. Very much like the main character in The Earth Angel Training Academy – Velvet. She spends most of the book wondering what the hell is going on and getting annoyed when others seem to know what the bigger picture is and she doesn’t. Come to think of it, I’m quite like Aria the Faerie too. She’s always eavesdropping and spying on other people’s conversations. Hmm.

Because of my need to know everything, I have had many, many readings, from mediums and psychics and intuitive friends, all in my quest to know what’s going to happen. Most of the time, those readings bring comfort because they just reassure me that no matter what is going on in the present moment, it’s all going to turn out just fine. Which, let’s be honest, that’s the main reason why anyone has a reading – to be told – it’s all good!

The problem I have been experiencing, is that there have been predictions made in these readings that I don’t like. I’ve been told that things will happen, that quite honestly, I don’t want to happen. (not because they’re bad, but because they’re not things I would choose to experience). And so I set on a quest to choose the opposite. After all, we have free will, right?

But no matter how hard I was choosing, in further readings, the same predictions came up over and over, and it seemed like everything was conspiring to make this path happen.

So I gave in. I said – fine, if this is what is mean to be, then I’ll do it.

I thought that by giving in and going with the flow, the rest of my life would fall into place and start working. But it didn’t. In fact, I found I was even more stuck, because unconsciously I was stopping doing things that might take me down that path I didn’t want to go down.

So I made a new choice – I don’t want that life. It is not my choice. And even if the path I am choosing is a little more rocky, so be it.

All of this, of course, made me realise that sometimes, knowing what our future holds can be a big problem. Because we get attached or repelled by what we’re told is to come. And it affects our decisions, and our ability to remain in the present moment.

Yesterday I was reading excerpts of The Earth Angel Training Academy, and I found this quote, from the Rainbow Children, when they are asked to predict someone’s future. Despite my nosiness, and the fact that I know so many mediums and psychics that I have great respect for, I think it’s time that I let go of all the predictions, let go of my need for certainty, and embrace the wild ride of life on a moment to moment basis.

Of course, the ironic thing is, that once we let go of the predictions and live in the moment, we tend to end up creating the future we wanted anyway.

Don’t you just love how the Universe works?

 

PS. I still recommend having a reading if you are looking to connect with someone you’ve lost, or you need reassurance that you’re on the right path, but no matter what comes up, do your best not to get too attached to it.

Twin Flame Advice

In the last few weeks, I’ve had a few requests for Earth Angel Oracle Readings in response to my reading for those in the Runner Stage. This video is the first of a few I have to release over the next week or two, I hope you enjoy and that it holds some helpful advice for you too. Continue reading

Twin Flame Oracle Reading

Hello beautiful Earth Angels! Apologies for the blog being ultra quiet recently, I have been busy with the new book, which is being read by my Beta readers right now (cue biting nails!) and also I have been on a bit of a self-discovery journey with my health, which I will be blogging about soon, because I really want to share the things I have discovered in being my own health detective. If it’s helped me, it may help others! Continue reading

Spending Time with Starlight

Velvet & Starlight

I’ve just spent the last few days with my soul sister, Sarah Rebecca Vine, founder of the Earth Angel Sanctuary, and I have to say, it was amazing. Though it was the first time for us meeting in real life in this incarnation, we felt as though we’d known each other forever, which considering we realised that she is Starlight (in the Earth Angel series) and Velvet is based on myself, then it’s true, we have known each other forever!

On Thursday, we recorded the Twin Flame hangout, and we have had so much wonderful feedback, that we’re really glad we were able to do it. A lot of intuitive knowledge came through during it, and I think it will help those seeking their Flames, or who are currently separated from their Flames.

Sarah also recorded a review of the Earth Angel series, and if you have loved the Earth Angel books and want to win a signed copy of the latest one, then there’s still time to enter the video competition with a simple video review of one or all of the books.

If you are an Earth Angel and you need help and guidance, then I would highly recommend checking out Sarah’s channel on YouTube which has so many helpful videos, and also becoming a member of the Earth Angel Sanctuary, where she has so many useful videos and also interviews and other products. Her mission is to help as many Earth Angels as possible with their missions, and I feel very blessed to have spent time with her, and connecting with her.

 

 

Earth Angel Bears

Last week, while trying to declutter, I discovered a half-finished bear from my bear-making days. I looked into the seed bead eyes of this limb-less creature, and I felt a deep need to finish it, and bring it to life, after it had been stuck in a bag in the loft for the last seven years.

Once she was properly ‘alive’ I found I just couldn’t stop. In the last week, I have created several new bears, and have also designed new wings, as I decided to restock my empty etsy shop with ‘Earth Angel Bears’.

I started making bears when I was a teenager, and my very first bear was a sad little creature called Doddle. I blogged about Doddle a while back. He took me a whole week to make, and though I felt a sense of satisfaction at actually finishing him, he really didn’t look quite right! But after several years of making bears, creating my own patterns, honing and much practice, my bears finally started looking like real bears.

Over the course of 7 years, I made nearly 100 bears, and sold many of them, giving others away as gifts. I kept very few of them, three of which are the Old Souls I have listed on etsy – Mulberry, Robert and Gwri.

Just before I went into retirement, I had started to make hand-felted faerie wings for my bears, because I wanted them to fly. I sold a few, including Floyd, a bright pink bear with purple wings who went to live in New York. Then for some reason, somehow, I stopped making bears. Right in the middle of creating one, who I have now called Leilani. She is an incarnated Faerie bear, and I think she’s rather lovely:

The biggest thing I have realised this week, is that I have really missed creating physical things. I’ve painted a few cards in the last few months, and done the odd creative project, but creating these little characters is something different entirely. It has given me a sense of accomplishment to see them lined up, ready to go to their new homes where they will be loved and where they will help people to Awaken! It makes me feel like Velvet, creating her Earth Angel army to send to Earth to help bring about the Golden Age! (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out my first book 😉 )

I feel like my life is almost entirely digital, and it’s not unusual for me to spend 12 hours or more a day staring at some kind of screen. Which make me feel a little bit sad. So it’s been a complete joy to set the screens aside and create beautiful little ones. I do hope you fall in love with them too! I have created a Facebook page, and I would love for you to check them out on etsy and to share them with your friends.

Here’s a picture of Honesty and Larry, named in honour of Aria and her ladybug friend from The Earth Angel Training Academy.

You are Stronger Than You Realise

Many people have heard of tarot or oracle cards, but often don’t understand them, or how they work. I don’t claim to understand the deeper working of the different types of cards, but I do know how they work for me, and their significance in my life.

Essentially, the cards do not tell us what we don’t already know. They are simply tools to point out the obvious. To bring to the conscious mind what is currently subconscious. And I do believe that they contain a kind of magic, because quite often, they defy all odds and statistics.

If you wanted to try using tarot or oracle cards, and you’re not sure where to start, I would always recommend starting with a set of oracle cards. There are so many out there to choose from, many of them cover different areas of life, and some are just general advice with a theme. Oracle cards are usually gentler and easier to decipher and apply to your life than tarot cards, which require more knowledge and an understanding of both the major and minor arcana, and of each suit in the minor arcana, and then the ability to looks at the meaning of the images and their symbols.

Go with the cards that you are drawn to, and try them out. Most decks have a little booklet that describes ways of using them, but my favourite way to use them is to tap them three times (to clear any attached energy), give them a good shuffle, ask a question, then whatever number springs to mind – I pick out that many cards. If any cards fall out during shuffling, I read them too.

A few years ago, with the help of Jack Shalatain, I created three oracle card decks to accompany The Earth Angel Training Academy. I often use these decks when I am in need of guidance, but I stopped using the Velvet oracle after a few readings, because every single time, I would pick out the same card. Yes, the exact same card. I lost count of how many times. The reason I decided to write this post, is because I was putting away a little bag that I used when I did the last two oracle card readings among the bluebells. I had removed the three decks of oracle cards from the bag, but I had left one card behind, and only found it today. And yep, you guessed it, it was the same card.

Here it is:

wpid-20140530_164909.jpg

You tend to pick the same cards out of oracle or tarot decks over and over until you have either really got their message, or the event they are pointing to comes to pass. Clearly, Velvet doesn’t think I have got this message yet!

If you would like to ask Velvet, Amethyst or Aria a question, and get a free reading like the one below, just send me your question at theamethystangel@hotmail.co.uk.

 

Twin Flame Oracle Readings

Since putting out the call for questions for Aria, Amethyst or Velvet, I have noticed that the majority of the questions are related to Twin Flames. In fact, both of this week’s readings are for two Earth Angels who asked the same question – Will I be with my Twin Flame in this lifetime?

It seems to be a question on the minds of many Earth Angels, and I hope that these two readings not only answer the question for the two who asked, but also for anyone else watching and wondering if they too, will be with their Flame. To know who your Flame is, and not be with them, is a difficult place to be in, I know. Especially if your Flame has not Awakened and does not understand the depth and meaning of your connection.

I write about the reunion of the Flames in my novels – The Earth Angel Training Academy, The Earth Angel Awakening and The Other Side. Though the relationship can be the most harmonious you have ever experienced, the path to being together can be anything but smooth, and it’s important to remember to enjoy the journey, and remember that all is working out exactly as it should.

I hope you enjoy the readings, please feel free to leave a comment, and if you have a question, please email it to me at theamethystangel@hotmail.co.uk.

A Sign from the Angels

Have you ever received a sign from the Angels? Would you recognise it if you did?

It’s long been believed that white feathers are signs from the Angels. As well as rainbows, heart-shaped clouds or anything else that you may have asked for as proof of their existence. I’ve had many signs from the Angels. Sometimes I ask for something specific, like the time I asked for butterflies if I was on the right path at the time. All of a sudden they were everywhere. As well as real ones, I’d see pictures of them, and wooden ones and plastic ones. Would those butterflies have still showed up in my life if I hadn’t asked the Angels for them? Possibly. But had I not asked for them, would I have noticed them? Probably not.

So if you’re in need of help or comfort, ask the Angels for a sign that they are indeed with you. I remember several years ago, that I had requested rose petals as a sign that the Angels were with me. Time passed and I forgot my request. Then I came home after having had tests in hospital, and was feeling particularly low, when I looked out of the kitchen window to see that my rose plant, that had been in perfect bloom just that morning, was now devoid of roses. And the garden path was covered in rose petals. It hadn’t been a windy day, so I knew that it had been the Angels’ way of telling me that I was not alone.

If you want to read more about such signs, Doreen Virtue’s book – Signs from Above is very good.

Earlier this week, I made a video asking for you to send in your questions that you wanted either Velvet, Aria or Amethyst to answer. After uploading the video, I noticed that when I started talking about Amethyst, the Angel, a tiny white weather drifted down from nowhere, right in front of me. I hadn’t seen it when filming. It was also spotted by my dear friend, and incarnated elemental. Annette Ecuyere. She has asked a question of Amethyst, which I will record the answer to next week.

You can view the video with the feather on my blog post, or on you tube, the feather features at 1:40.

A wonderful question was asked of Amethyst, you can see the video of Amethyst answering it below.

What Question Would You Ask an Angel?

If you could ask an Angel a question, what would you ask?

The reason I created the Amethyst, Aria and Velvet Oracle cards, was so that my readers could interact with the characters from my books. I’ve been doing Oracle Card of the Day readings on youtube, but it felt too general and a little boring to pick a card for a specific day but with no specific question.

So I am putting a call out to my readers, and indeed anyone with a burning question they would like answered, to send me their question, and who the question is for – Aria the Faerie, Amethyst the Angel or Velvet the Old Soul.

You can watch the video below to see how it works.
