    Drinking in the Sweetness of God's Love

    We are drawing on the compassionate and timeless wisdom of The Gabriel Messages to provide insight and inspiration that we can apply every day of our lives.

    For this week, the message from Archangel Gabriel encourages us to use our imagination to open to and receive new levels of Beauty and Love within us.


    The Gabriel Message Card for this Week

    Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice within you

    to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.


    This is one of my favorite Gabriel Messages. It describes the beautiful experience of receiving Divine Light and allowing the power of Divine Intelligence and Love to permeate your energy system.

    When we are willing to ask for the blessing of Divine Light, our hearts can become an open vessel to receive. This willingness is a huge step in our evolution, especially when life seems so difficult to understand in these fast-changing times.

    When I was in a dark time a number of years ago, one of my teachers told me that confusion was a great gift because it leads to Clarity. That was difficult to hear, but when I allowed myself to just be willing to receive, it felt like doors in my mind opened to the awareness that was lurking behind the clouds of confusion.

    The next step is to give ourselves the space and time we need to allow this experience into our being. Creating Sacred Space is a brilliant activity for our spiritual practice, as it creates a container to hold all your deepest, heartfelt intentions. This space becomes a sanctuary for me when I need to remember what I truly want to experience in my life.

    Even if we can only sit for five or ten minutes to breathe deeply and set our intentions for the day, we have the opportunity to receive Divine Light into every cell of our bodies. We are creating new crystalline structures within us when we do this practice. We are also receiving the Divine Intelligence and Love inherent in the Light frequencies. I imagine the area around my heart and thymus to be a beautiful holy chalice that can receive all that I need for my highest good.

    Many years ago my guru, who was from India, spoke of the experience of God's Love as Amrita — a sweetness at the back of the tongue during meditation. He said this is one way that we know we are receiving the high frequencies of Divine Love into our beings. My devotional nature especially loves this practice, for when I take the time to create a space where I can receive this gift, my heart is flooded, opened and blessed with Divine Love.

    I love the visual practice given by Archangel Gabriel to become an empty chalice, a holy vessel open to receive a waterfall of Golden Light from the most Divine Source. In this very receptive state, we are able to welcome the power of God's Wisdom and Love into our beings, and have a very real experience that we can remember as truth for us.

    Divine Presence,

    I ask to be a pure and holy vessel for your Love. May I open new channels within me to receive more Wisdom, more Guidance, more Strength, more Compassion and, especially, may I receive your Love to the depths of my being.

    Allow me to have a visceral experience of your Presence within me and open to the sweetness of the Love that is available for me to receive with every breath I take.

    I am willing to live in your Love and accept that there is never a time when I am not being held in the Wings of Pure Light. Help me to remember how supported I am and receive it deeply within my being.

    Thank you for blessing me, inspiring me and guiding me so I may truly know that I am never alone, and that Well-Being is my only reality. And so it is.

    The Gabriel Messages Book #18

    Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice within you to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.

    Dear One,

    When you ask to be a receptacle for pure light, you are saying that you have space within you, and that you are willing to fill this space with love and all that which is God. You are saying that you want to be filled with Divine Light, and assist the process of bringing Heaven to Earth.

    This is important for everyone, and it does not interfere with other work or with family life. Recognize that your purpose on this planet is to be a bridge between Heaven and Earth, so that all beings may live in greater Harmony, Peace and Love. This mission requires assistance from all. Each person who turns toward Divine Light assists this purpose and raises the collective consciousness of the planet. The way to bring Peace on Earth is through one person at a time. So always remember how important you are to the evolution of consciousness on the Earth.

    Being a receptacle for Divine Light expands your mind and creates new ways of responding to situations in your life. When you become a receptacle for Pure Light you are in prayer for yourself and others. Whenever you pray you open the door for more Light to come through you. Prayer is a great form of purification, and raises your vibrational frequency as well as others through you. The higher your vibration, the more Peace and Love you will feel.


    Visualization can greatly assist the process of becoming a Holy Vessel. Give yourself time to sit quietly, away from the world. Flowers and candles can uplift the energy around you and help you feel more expansive. Take some time to breathe balanced breaths, until you are in a calm and relaxed state. Pray to the Divine Presence that you may be a receptacle for pure light and then imagine that your body becomes a beautiful golden chalice. See it empty, or only partially filled with Divine Light. Imagine that you are sitting under a waterfall of God’s Golden Light. This Golden Light has great power and contains both Wisdom and Love. Imagine that you are drinking in this precious Light, and as it fills up your golden chalice, you are absorbing love and wisdom into every fiber of your being. The more full your vessel becomes, the more loving and blissful you feel. Make your chalice very large, so your entire energy field is expanded.

    Take time every day to sit in Divine Light and Pure Love. Drink in this Light, then let it shine into the world, so all may know the truth of God’s presence. You will find yourself becoming more loving, expansive and clear. Decisions will be easier as you feel connected to a greater Source of Wisdom within your heart.

    This simple exercise holds great power, and whenever or wherever it is done, it will allow you to be attuned to your God Source at all times. The more often you do it, the stronger you will become. The greater the level of Strength, Light and Love you are able to hold within you, the easier it will be to serve God and to assist others in their evolution.

    You will be one who is a bridge between Heaven and Earth when you remember your inspiration for today:

    Ask to be a receptacle for pure Light, then allow the empty chalice

    within you to drink in the sweetness of Divine Love.

    Have you been feeling like you're walking through

    a dense fog?




    Two Days Left! Please take advantage of this opportunity!

    I am offering nearly $40 off the price of my readings during this intensely unfolding life process.
    Everyone I have talked with recently has commented about their recent experiences as the most intense and difficult time in their lives. There are many good reasons why this is true, but that doesn't always help us feel better.

    We need personal clarity, and thankfully the Archangels see life from a more enlightened perspective that can support you in creating more trust in your life process and opening to the opportunities that are available.

    This special Angelic price of $111 is available for both the Soul Alignment Readings and the Light Activation Sessions only until June 7. Please take advantage of this special offer, especially if you're feeling confused, unsure of your next steps, or would love to painlessly clear away obstacles to aligning with the new higher frequencies of energy we're experiencing.

    I look forward to our enlightening conversations.

    Blessings to you,


    The Healing and Transformative Power of Flowing Water


    Spiritual Showers

    I love when inspiration hits. And it’s a funny bit of common knowledge that lots of us have our most inspirational ideas in the shower!

    This isn’t just your imagination. Water has incredible spiritual and healing properties that promote clearing and therefore allow those sparks to manifest and come into your conscious.

    Water is also a powerful way to cleanse your aura, and here’s why.

    The Spiritual Properties of Water

    The Power of Negative Ions

    Water is made up of negative ions. This is especially true when it comes to moving water like oceans, rivers, waterfalls, and showers. When we, humans, come into contact with negative ions, we naturally experience reduced stress, a heightened sense of bliss and increased energy.

    Soothing Emotions 

    Symbolically, water represents your emotions and the unconscious mind. Therefore just the sound of running water can promote a meditative state as water works to smooth and soothe emotions.  This relaxed state then opens you to great guidance from the higher realms, and insight into your own unconscious.

    Water Holds Energy 

    Because water is magnetically attractive, it can hold energy. This means that it will hold and carry your intentions and prayers.

    The Healing Power of Water

    Water has always been used in spiritual and religious rituals because of its deep power to heal. This about places like Lourdes, France where documented healings have occurred after a bath there.  Perhaps you’ve had the experience of soaking in natural hot springs or a cooling pool at the bottom of a waterfall?

    Cleansing Negativity

    In addition to washing away tangible dirt and grime, water can also wash you of negative energy. It absorbs what you carry easily and effectively, and helps wash away lower vibrations and energies you may have come in contact with.

    The next time you come across a natural body of water, take a minute to splash some water on your face, arms, or feet and visualize the water refreshing and clearing your aura. The same works even if you’re not outside.  If you feel your stress rising, splash water on your face and imagine the stress (or any other negative emotion) being washed down the drain.

    How Water Helps You to Receive Guidance

    Spiritual Showers- The Healing and Transformative PowerWhen you’re faced with a challenge or a difficult decision and you’d like some clarity, and even guidance from your angels, one of the simplest things you can do is to boost your intuition with the power of water.

    A great way to do this is to take a shower or a bath (if you take a bath, it’s important to leave the water running as moving water has more electrical charge and negative ions).

    If you have access to a safe river, beach, waterfall, or natural hot springs, these are also great places for this practice.

    Once you’re in the water (or next to a body of water in nature), hold your challenge or question in your mind and send the question to your angels.  This release of the question and the outcome is important as it frees your mind to receive the answer, and doing so can be as simple as thinking or saying: “Angels please help me with _____________.”

    Next, pay attention to feelings, spontaneous thoughts, visions, or voices that arise within you, as these are common ways in which the guidance of your angels will appear.

    Try to maintain a state of awareness and remain present, rather than struggling or trying to force anything to happen.

    If and when you feel guidance coming in some way, but you’re not sure about the meaning, simply ask the question, “What does this mean?” or “Angels, can you please explain this to me further?”

    If things still don’t make sense to you, that’s ok.  Just remember what the message was.  Maybe write it down (after the shower!) and continue to reflect on what the guidance from your angels means.

    Also, as the situation in your life unfolds further, the meaning of the message is likely to become clearer over time, and as you continue to receive additional guidance, signs, and symbols from the angels.

    Psychic Cleansing Showers

    There are showers you take to clean your body, and then there are showers you take to clean your aura.  This second kind of shower is often called a Psychic Shower and generally speaking, they’re best taken in the evenings.

    This is because you naturally and unknowingly collect negative energies (energy from other people) all day long, everywhere you go.  It’s a good idea to remove any negativity before going to bed each night.  This is a general preventative measure that will help prevent disease or dis-ease that occurs from long term build-up and a clogged and stagnant aura.

    A psychic shower before bed will help you to relax, sleep better, and wake up feeling more refreshed.

    7 Steps To Cleanse Your Energy With A Psychic Shower

    Taking a psychic shower is easy, and it feels great!

    1. Begin by getting in the shower.

    2. As you stand in the stream of water, visualize yourself surrounded with light.

    3. Allow your energy to ground to the earth, by visualizing your energy flowing down, grounding you to the light at the core of the Earth.

    4. Next, visualize your aura and allow yourself to see any negative and foreign energy – perhaps dark spots or particles that are being held in your energy. With awareness, you can begin to let these things go.

    5. Visualize any negativity, density, and foreign energy, rinsing away from you, and washing down the drain with the water.

    6. When you are finished, visualize your aura, and energy body as clear and vibrant, giving thanks to Mother Earth and Mother Ocean for supporting you in cleansing your energy and releasing any lower vibrations or negativity into the light.

    7. Turn off the shower, dry off, and enjoy feeling lighter, brighter and energetically clearer than you were before!

    A slight variation of this technique is invoking a waterfall of light as you shower, to cleanse and release negativity in all forms from your body, mind. A waterfall of light can actually be used any time, whether you’re in the shower or not.

    Cleansing Bath

    If the idea of a cleansing bath is more appealing to you than a shower, feel free to use the tub when you do the practice above.  Remember to keep the faucet running while you do. You can also scoop up water into your hands, or into a glass or jar and pour it over your head with the intention to cleanse your energy and release all negativity into the light.

    If you don’t have a tub, you can use a pitcher or large jar filled with warm water to make an herbal infusion. Place petals or herbs of your choosing into the jar and allow it to steep for an hour.  You can also prepare this in the morning before work in order to use at night.  When you’re ready for your psychic bath, slowly pour the infusion over all parts of you, visualizing the healing and restorative aspects of the water and herb washing your aura clean.

    Alternately, a salt bath is a wonderful way to cleanse your energy and tap into the spiritual properties of water.

    Earth Showers

    An Earth Shower is a type of psychic shower which is considered by many to be the purest method to return negative energy to Mother Earth for transformation.

    To use this method, you simply have to bath in a body of natural water.  Oceans are the most powerful body of water to do this in thanks to the synchronized tides that carry Earth energy out.  Not everyone is fortunate enough to live near the ocean however, and you can just as easily use a creek, river, lake, waterfall, or natural hot spring to cleanse your energy and tap into the power of taking an Earth Shower.

    Either immerse yourself fully or dip as much of your body into the water as you can. Imagine that the water washes away any energy which does not belong to you. Visualize the water carrying the unwanted energy back to the Earth for transformation, and to be released into the light.

     Crystal Cleansing Shower

    Crystals are powerful tools that attract and absorb energies.  Use something like a clear quartz, citrine, a lemurian seed crystal or amethyst while in the shower in order to help absorb unwanted energies. Don’t use selenite, as it can dissolve in water!

    Just hold the crystal in your hand, and gently rub the crystal across your skin or wave it around your aura.

    Visualize energy being attracted to the crystal and being absorbed by it, and then released into the light.

    When you’re finished, you’ll want to cleanse your crystal too by placing it in a bowl of sea salt, or tapping into other ways of cleansing crystals, which you can learn more about here:

    Why And How Water Brings You Fresh Ideas

    Remember, that the spiritual properties of water don’t just clear your energy and take negative, dense or stagnant energy away; water can also bring you energy.

    Water can heighten your creativity, intuition, and bring you fresh ideas.

    If you’re feeling stuck, or your mood is low, try jumping in the shower or bath, going for a swim, or just splashing water on your face.

    As you do, keep an intention clear in your mind to be open to receive new and invigorating energy from the spiritual properties of water.

    You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what finds its way to you through the spiritual properties of water.


    With love and gratitude,
