March Guidance from Archangel Raphael, The Water Element and the Wisdom of the Owl



"Healthy Lifestyle"
Archangel Raphael

:Eat a healthful diet, get adequate sleep, and exercise regularly for optimal health.
You are co-creating your health by following your inner guidance about lifestyle habits.  I give you inner nudges to improve the way you eat, or to exercise or rest more often.
My prodding isn’t to nag you or rob you of pleasure.  Rather, my urgings are in response to your prayers for higher energy levels, increased well-being, weight loss and a happier mood.
When you take excellent care of your body, your outlook and self esteem naturally blossom.”  

“water element”

The water element embodies the powers of emotion,  communication and cleansing.  It encourages adaptability and strength by teaching one to follow the path of least resistance. 
Yet water’s apparent gentleness is deceptive.  Over time, water can war down the greatest of mountains, or carve deep canyons through solid rock.  

Water is the blood of the Great mother Earth.  It carries nourishment to all parts of her body. Water is the presence of her emotions, washing, caressing and nurturing.

The element of water can be invoked to cleans and purify the aura, washing away all stagnant energies.
Though gentle, the energy of water cleans deeply, and can remove ingrained patterns and traumas from the energy field through the gift of release.  The energy of water can be invoked to clear any
lingering anger or resentment that may be blocking you from moving forward on your path.

The symbol of wisdom

The owl can see that which others cannot, which is the essence of true wisdom.  Where others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what is there.  The Owl has the ability to light up your blind spot, enabling you to speak the whole truth, as apposed to only a half truth.

You are being asked to use your powers of keen, silent observation to intuit some life situation.
Owl is befriending you and aiding you to see the total truth. Owl can bring you messages in the night through dreams or meditation.  Pay attention to the signals and omens.  
The truth always brings further enlightenment.

The other gift Owl offers is the question of deception..Have you been deceived by either yourself or another?  The message is to befriend the darkness, by asking what are you in the darkness about?
How and by whom are you being deceived? Have you lied to yourself about someone or something?
Keep an eye on your property and your loved ones.  Remember the Owl is always asking "who?'

The Splendor of it All


Haleakala Summit "The House of the Rising Sun"


Map of Maui

I was just in Maui and Hawaii with my husband Bruce celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. I had a keen awareness of the Creator orchestrating a splendid symphony of all of the elements in the birthing of a new day, as the sun broke over the Haleakala Summit otherwise known as the “house of the Rising Sun”.  The beauty and the exquisite majesty was at play as the elements created a beautiful, colorful tapestry for our enjoyment. The warmth of the sun (yes I was wearing a winter jacket!) brought a vibrancy and a radiance, as it shined upon the water creating millions of diamonds dancing upon the ocean waters. The bright blue sea was teaming with life, as the dolphins played, turtles swam, and the wales gave birth in the safe tempered waters.   The air was fresh and clean, and we felt the effortless expansiveness with each inhalation and exhalation.  The mother earth was cradling us in her loving embrace, nurturing, grounding and balancing us.  

If you’ll notice in the second picture- Maui is in the shape of a woman, and the Haleakala Summit is the heart.  The elements of air, water, fire, earth were woven together wile the key element of love brilliantly, softly played it’s important role in the miraculous creation of life. 

It was truly a blessing to be a part of this event and to be reminded of our unique role in All that is.

May you be inspired to create in the space of expansiveness, passion, fluidity, beauty and love!

Harmonic Doodling
Join me on Monday March 3rd at 5pm and learn about Harmonic Doodling!  Rosemary Marchetta will explain exactly what Harmonic doodling  consists of, as well as the benefits it offers - such as entering the void where all creations stem from.  Find out how you can begin Harmonic Doodling; an approach to instantly creating a state of ease and harmony using a pencil, paper and your own imagination!
It is a simple process of drawing rythmic, organic shapes with your attention focused on a particular sound or tone. Check out Rosemary's blog- http//

Being of Sound Mind and Body


The word sound brings to mind all things auditory, as in what happens when a tree falls in the woods.  Additionally, the word sound, as an adjective, can be defined as ‘healthy, in good condition’, synonymous with fit, flawless, vigorous or whole. Disease, on the other hand, can be described as a disorder, a deviation from the normal structure, a state of imbalance or being in unsound condition. Many ancient cultures, including Australian Aborigines, Egyptians, and Greeks used the vibrational properties of sound to heal, in other words, they used sound to bring matter into a sound condition, but the practice was generally lost in the west until the fairly recent discovery of medicinal uses for ultrasound. Contemporary sound healing generally focuses on the principles of resonance and raising the vibrational frequency through conscious intention to promote health. The practices described here are simple techniques to bring our conscious awareness to focus on the vibrational frequencies of sound, allowing us to enter a relaxed, meditative state.

Using a pencil as a conscious tool we bring our focused attention to the structure and form of sound by drawing the shape of a particular tone. Drawing harmonic shapes helps us to enter into a meditative state and access the feeling of well being. Drawing specific areas of discomfort or dissonance helps us become more quiet, focused, and in tune with our inner workings. Drawing the shapes of sound can be thought of as steps to becoming aware of the vibrational frequencies that course though our physical, mental, and emotional bodies, and, by entering into harmonious resonance with certain tones, we can consciously alter these frequencies to become uplifted and enjoy a state of tranquil well-being.

A doodle is a drawing made while a person’s attention is occupied by something other than the act of drawing.  In the examples below we focus our attention on a particular sound tone or mantra, and use the pencil to create a representation of that tone on a page.  There is no right or wrong doodle, only continuous flowing lines and curves that move into each other in an organic pattern.  Harmonious tones are pleasing to the ear, and the resulting doodles are playful shapes that ease the mind.  It is interesting to keep a doodle journal in which you freely fill the pages with shapes of the sounds you focus on.  I recommend writing down the date and other relevant information alongside the doodle, whether it is a mantra, tone, or doodle of physical or emotional dissonance, etc.  It is fun to look back on these doodles and read them like a journal entry, a description of the state of your life.

Harmonic Doodling:  An approach to instantly creating a state of ease and harmony using a pencil, paper and your own imagination.  

Harmonic doodling is the term that I use to describe the simple but empowering process of drawing rhythmic, organic shapes with your attention focused on a particular sound or tone.  I prefer to listen to specific sound frequencies while doodling, many of which are available for free online, but this is not necessary.  You can doodle while listening to all sorts of sound meditation music, nature sounds, Tibetan bowls, etc. You can doodle while chanting om either silently or out loud, or use any other mantra or tone.  However, especially in the beginning, it is easier to focus when you are physically hearing one tone, such as solfeggio harmonic frequencies.  Choose something that is pleasing to your ear, breathe deeply, quiet your mind, and let your pencil move.

As you begin to doodle, letting your pencil flow around the page, your mind relaxes and starts to wander freely.  The doodle shapes reflect this unwinding. Keep the pencil moving, following the shape of the sound you are hearing.  I tend to do short doodles and then connect them with flowing lines into larger masses.  As your mind settles into the process, turn the page and start doodling on a fresh sheet of paper.  You begin to notice that your mind is more focused, and the doodles are more delicate, more precise.  Organic shapes emerge as one line flows into the next. You feel relaxed, happy. You are in a meditative state in which time stands still, and the world outside your doodle is irrelevant.

Harmonic doodling can be practiced at any time of day, but is especially useful to quiet the mind before bed.  It is also helpful to sit down and doodle if you are feeling stressed or upset about something.  It can instantly bring you into a relaxed state of mental clarity and emotional well being.  Get up and go about the rest of your day maintaining this state of mind.  Practice this technique a few times and get comfortable with it before moving on to the other types of doodles described below.

Happy Valentine's Day

                                                   Time for Creation!

                                     It is time for your unique genius to blossom.  

You are being called in the midst of chaos and insecurity to create.  It is human nature to create. 
That’s why we are here, to create something unique and original.  I remember the message in Leo Tolstoy’s story about Ivan Illyich s as he is lying on his death bed and in a moment of clarity, he sees that he has not, after all, lived well, and asks “ what if my whole life has been wrong?” 
This now present moment is the perfect time to find out what makes your heart sing.  We are each unique, and are given varied gifts and talents.   What gifts reside in you, and are just waiting to come out? Drop down from your mind and tap into your sacred heart space, to see what gems are glistening and sparkling-just waiting to be brought out and shown to the world.  

Reconnect with the knowing that you are love, and that miracles really can pour into your life and that you have the power to create the life you have envisioned overflowing with magic and miracles. Brainstorm and take your beautiful ideas to fruition.

Be purposeful, intentional and powerful.  Step out of the box. 

The reference points outside ourselves are changing, as the shift occurs.  The reference points outside of ourselves are actually dissolving. We are now finding the reference points that are reliable and dependable are found within ourselves, in our heart space.  There are forces beyond our control in play, and we are being tested.  Do we step up to the plate and create-even though we have challenges?

It’s got to be good, it’s gotta be powerful, it’s gotta be true, and we have to be masterful.  Are you ready to step into your mastery?

This is the time to accept the gifts we have been given.  It is time to shine our radiant light for all to see.  Let the seeding take place so the blossoms may bloom.
