Saying Goodbye to 2018

As it approached the midnight hour of December 31, 2018, I decided to do a card reading. I created a spread to release what no longer serves me in 2019. Since 2018 was a four personal year, I used a four card spread for this reading.  

In 2018 I have learned to listen for truth. This includes my own truth — that part of me that knows who I showed up on Earth to be. This was a tough process, a dark process, but by listening for my truth, I have heard my soul speak. It has guided me out of the darkness and onto my path. This journey has made me stronger, and has helped me clarify who I am and why I am here.  

What I am holding onto that no longer serves me is my dark wound. It is time to release the darkness that I have lived with for the past 30 years. It is time to hear my soul and let love live! It is now a journey within, looking into the darkest parts of my heart and setting free this despair forever. Listening to my truth has made this a necessary step, so I must release it to live my best life in 2019. 

The way to release this darkness from my heart is to simply have faith in the process. Trust my inutition to guide me through it step by step. Trust my guides and angels to have my back. Trust the Archangels to work with me throughout this process. Trust my soul which is telling me to simply Let. It. Go. The darkness and despair have served their purpose. They have taught me so much about living with and through depression. It is time to thank them for their help with learning this, and let them go with love.  

Heaven sent is what I need to take with me into 2019. This means I need to trust my Spirit Council, my guardians, guides and angels. Trust my Soul. Messages come to me daily through my guides and angels. They are always for my highest good. As long as I am open to receiving signs and gifts from heaven, I will create the best possible 2019! 

Healing Message from Heaven Sent Card: “Through unconditional love, I now accept the spiritual gifts that are bestowed upon me, with complete trust and gratitude. So be it. “

You too can choose to release what no longer serves you as you enter into this upcoming year. Ask your soul to let you know what this is. You can do this through meditation or through working with cards. You can connect with nature, but going for a walk. Pay attention to all that is around you. Your Soul will answer you.

I pray that 2019 will be an empowering year, with you living a life filled with purpose and joy. 



Ask Your Soul - November 6


Today your soul wants you to understand that your purpose is simple...experience joy!

Joy doesn’t have to be from some grand experience. Joy can be from the extra 10 minutes you let yourself sleep in, or a favourite song you hear on the radio. Maybe it’s the happy dance you do in your kitchen as you wait for your coffee to perk.

You can also experience joy, simply by remembering a time when you felt it in your past. Maybe a family gathering, or a celebratory dinner. Simply by thinking about this memory, you re-experience that joy.

What can you do today to bring joy into your life? Is it possible to go for a walk in nature? Maybe take in a movie you have wanted to see. Spend time with a child or pet. Joy is often found in the simple things in life.

Many times we think that we can’t find joy in our daily lives. Our job may not be fulfilling, or our transportation might not be reliable. The kids might be demanding and taking all of your time.

But look beneath the surface. What in your job can you find joy in doing? What one small task? What about your transportation? Is there one small aspect that you can find joy in? Even if your kids are driving you crazy, I’m sure there is one memory you have of a joyful time with them.

You don’t need to wait for your dream job, or special event or vacation to experience joy. It is a feeling that you can choose to experience at any time.

It is something that you might have to look for when you are feeling sad or in a depressed state of mind. But know that joy is available to you even at these times. It might not be for a long period, maybe mere seconds, but even that little piece of joy will help your day be brighter.


I now choose to experience joy, if only for a moment.
