Psychic Sunday ~ Thanksgiving 'Party' at the Owl's Lantern

Sagittarius Goddess Artemis by Kathy Crabbe Dear Creative Soul,

With Artemis and my mentor by my side I'm stepping up to the plate and bringing my own voice more authentically to the forefront of all that I do.  So, what does that mean for you?

My Creative Soul Classes are now called Moon Circles and my hour long Circles are now free (donation only).

I've also designed a new banner for this website which was based upon the badge I used for my Divine Feminine eClass which I've renamed the 4 Week Moon Circle.  I'll be offering this Circle at Mt. San Jacinto College and once again at Susun Weed's Wise Woman University in 2015.

Why do you need to know about all these changes?  Because I'm finding my way and I want you to know what that looks like 'cause who knows, maybe it will inspire you too. I'm spending more time listening to my guides and my ancestors. I'm devoting more time to my art-self (and really digging the work of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington). I'm learning how to speak in public through Toastmasters and through joining the Holistic Registry in Menifee, CA where I'll be giving 60 second talks and then hour long presentations (Moon Circles). I'm being HONEST with myself and with others about what it is I actually do (I've updated my bio to reflect this which you can read at the bottom of this post).  So if this resonates with you then you're in the right place.

The other thing I'm doing differently now that I've come out of my Hermit Phase (for the last 5 years; basically since the economy took a nose dive) is that I'm giving in-person intuitive readings starting this Sunday, Nov. 30 at The Owl's Lantern in Fullerton, CA.  And I'm doing readings differently than anyone else (as far as I know). I'll be channeling/writing what comes through and then talking about it and giving this written material to the client 'cause that's how I work best and I'm no longer afraid to stand up for my own weird and wonderful way of doing things. I believe it makes for a better reading AND a reading that you can actually take home with you.

Interview with Clair Senses Teacher Ann Melanson

Ann Melanson

I am an everyday, ordinary person like you, who happens to be in touch with her intuitive, psychic ability. I have to put one foot in front of the other everyday, knowing that I am here for a greater purpose.

My greatest area of opportunity is remembering to ask you permission to voice the messages I receive after I have met you. I get random messages about different people all the time, sometimes the timing is not so great, like in the middle of making dinner for the family, and the angels are quite adamant that the messages are delivered then and there, so off I go to send an email or text message to someone or another, while the purpose at hand becomes postponed. Angel messages are always full of love, hope and beauty, I think, why wouldn’t you want to know what the angel’s messages are for you?? BUT… I understand that not all of you are ready to hear these messages…so I have learned to not just blurt out that your grannie says "Hi" from the other side… or that you have a bit of a dark side you have learned to overcome…, or any other such message I receive upon coming into your energy field.

More about Ann: Ann began her career working as a free-lance makeup artist/esthetician working with such names as Schwarzkopf, Christian Dior, and CBC Television. Knowing that her life was destined to encompass a spiritual theme, an opportunity presented itself to obtain her Reiki Level II new moon soul therapy by Ann Melansonthrough a well-known Reiki Master of the Usui tradition. Using her gift of intuitive ability, she continues to enlighten many people using methods such as Angel Card Readings, Psychometry, Reiki, Past Life Regression Therapy and Chakra Balancing. Ann believes in the empowerment of women, and the expression of individuality through love, understanding and enlightenment. She shares her living space with 3 children, a life partner, and many furried and feathered outdoor friends. Ann can also be found at www.wisewomanuniversity.org/melanson/

Wise Woman University is a sacred distance learning environment for the reweaving of the healing cloak of the ancients. Ann is a Wise Woman Mentor of Clair Senses Soul Therapy. Within this 4 week course you will learn how to listen to the daily messages from the Divine through opening your 4 major Clair-Senses and putting them to use in your daily life.

CLAIR SENSES SOUL THERAPY COURSE GOALS:

  1. Learn how to interpret a 3-card spread for a reading by using the Clair-Senses
  2. Develop your strengths by trusting the messages you receive
  3. Bring about positive changes in your life by acting on the Clair-messages
  4. Understand the power of intention

fairyFIVE THINGS THAT MAY BE BLOCKING YOUR INTUITIVE GUIDANCE

1. You need to be grounded, and clear-headed. Meditation, breathing, focusing on rising above your fifth-sensory world to raise your vibration. Having a quiet mind is key to receiving Divine messages of wisdom and love. Spend time outdoors with Mother Nature. Continue to nourish your body with fresh fruit and veggies, drink nourishing infusions to clear your body's filters of negative energy.

2. You are not asking for help! Your guides/angels/higher power cannot interfere due to the law of free-will. You need to quiet your mind, and ask for your messages from the Divine to be delivered with love and clarity, and in the highest good of all involved.

3. Your questions/prayers are being answered but in unexpected ways. Open your clair-senses and be patient while the Universe works out the details. Be aware of your sixth sense by asking yourself: what do I hear (clair audience), what do I feel (clair sentience), what do I know (clair gonizance), and what do I see beyond the physical (clair voyance).

4. The answer you seek offers challenges that you are not ready for yet. The message you seek may require confidence, maturity, courage beyond what you have mastered to accept and move forward with. You may not be ready to take action. The messages may also be delivered from different sources over time allowing you to digest the information in a way that allows you to cope. Sixth sensory living and spiritual growth go hand in hand so let go and have faith and your answers will come.

5. Your living space is muddying up your aura with clusters of clutter and unnecessary objects that hold negative energy. Clear away your space, donate items of value that hold negative energy whenever you see or hold the item(s). No matter what the monetary value, it is not worth giving up your psychic health for. Clean up and clear out your drawers, closets, cupboards and storage areas and you will experience a feeling of lightness and well being. In doing so, your clair senses will have an open channel to your sixth sensory living.

Craft for Misfits: An Interview with Michelle Riley

This month's special guest in my Creative Soul Circle is Aussie Artist Michelle Riley of Threefold Designs: 'Craft for Misfits'. Sign up here for the Creative Soul Circle ~ it's free! Michelle Riley: Craft for MisfitsInterview with Michelle Riley

What aspect of creating your art do you find the most enjoyable?

The design and execution of my art is the most enjoyable to me … especially stitching!

What originally got you started?

I went to Art School after high school, but although I knew I wanted to be an artist, I hadn’t found a medium I ‘clicked’ with.  It was only afterwards that I was inspired by the designs of Kaffe Fassett, and realized that needlepoint was the medium that suited me.

Who has inspired you the most creatively, and why?

The aforementioned Kaffe Fassett (www.kaffefassett.com), who is a creative and colour genius!  I am also inspired by hearing stories of other artists who have made a living doing what they love.

How did you decide what medium to work in?

I’m not sure why needlepoint struck a chord with me – I think it’s because wool is so earthy, grounding and textural.  I also like the fact that needlepoint isn’t considered ‘cool’ – it’s a challenge convincing people that it can be ;)

What message, if any, do you want to convey with your art?

To be honest, I’ve never really thought about conveying a message at all … I just do what makes me happy, and what is aesthetically pleasing to me.  If others love it, then that’s fantastic!  I do like to encourage people to learn cross stitch though.

If you had to choose a fruit or vegetable to describe yourself, what would you choose and why?

Rambutan – it’s weird looking, some people really love it and some people really hate it!  And yes, I can be a bit spiky at times ;)

Michelle Riley Stitching: Craft for MisfitsIf you had to choose one other medium in which to display your creativity, what would that be and why?

Woven tapestry!  This is what I am studying at the moment (in my second year of a 6 year diploma), and I hope to create one-of-a-kind pieces that complement my needlepoint kits.

What advice do you have for others who are just starting to develop creatively?

Seriously, just do it!  Don’t sit there thinking ‘oh, I’m not good enough’ – get out there are do what makes you feel happy!  Don’t worry about what other people think – the judgement is only as relevant as the judge ;)

What role does spirituality play in your creative life?

An enormous role!  My designs are ‘given’ to me by particular entities that want to make themselves known to me.  My very first design was Moon Phases, and I did this when I started studying Astrology.  Other designs came about after I was ‘visited’ by entities wanting their portraits done … for example, Hathor wouldn’t leave me alone until her design was done.  One day I set it aside to do something else, and the whole frame came crashing down (I still don’t know how!).  All was well when I started working on it again!

Do you have any business or marketing tips for other artists/crafters?

I’m probably not the best person to ask, since I’m still learning this myself!  If anyone reading this has any suggestions, I’d be glad to hear them ;)

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Life is all about doing what makes you feel good!  If you are thinking to yourself ‘I’d always like to be trying that’, then get out there and do it – you’re never too old, or not good enough to find your passion in life.

Each month in the Creative Soul Circle you'll meet a different guest and have an opportunity to interact with them in person. The Circle also features a Moon Musing Group; a support group for women.

Aries Crone Moon Musing

Aries Crone MoonJune 23, 2011 4:48 am pdt

Today is the beginning of the Waning (Crone) Moon. Every new/full/crone moon I post moon musings here in our Moon Musing Group with guided exercises, meditations, challenges and actions to help guide you on this Divine Feminine Journey into Moon Musing.

At the previous Full Moon many of us connected with your primary archetype. Well, now we're going to release ALL limitations, fears, burdens, etc. so we can move forward at the upcoming New Moon in Cancer on July 1.

Creative Soul Action: Let go of all labels, archetypes etc. so that you are standing on your own. Then pick a Creative Soul Card®. Take a moment to allow yourself to resonate with your card on a deep level. Then when you're ready I want you to embody the card on a deep level knowing that you are letting go of all you do not need or want.

Questions:

  1. Describe how that feels.
  2. How will you nurture this side of yourself?

How does your card tie in to the Crone Moon and also to the intentions you set at the previous New Moon?
