Month of Gratitude - Helping Others

Hello Everyone!

Thanksgiving is this week! THIS WEEK! Can you believe it?!?  It definitely feels like the holidays are arriving waaaay too fast.  But here we are, another week of appreciation for our month-long gratitude discussions.  If you've missed my last two posts, last week, I discussed being thankful for Veterans  and my post prior to that: Thankful for What's to Come I detailed all the new changes to this blog, and how grateful I am for the self-discoveries in my life leading up to my updated blog.  So to never miss a single post, be sure to subscribe at the top of this site for future posts.

This week, we are going to focus on being thankful for Helping Others:

I've been conducting readings for over ten years.  I always knew I was taking on the tremendous role of  helping people heal as I'm guided to from my Guardian Angels, who relay their words of wisdom to me -- so I can pass along to others. I'm always thankful for the opportunity to read for others that are receptive to making these healthy changes in their lives.  However lately, the profound sense of what this truly means has shown, even more powerful, and for that I'm truly grateful!

Yesterday, I was honored to conduct Angel Readings at one of the locations I work out of.  Changes, a Nutritional Therapy, Fitness and Wellness Center, held an Autumn Open House, showcasing all the healing work they provide. Throughout the entire afternoon, I read for those seeking life guidance from their Guardian Angels. And it just warmed my heart a million times more, seeing in their eyes the illuminated paths that will lead to their inner peace they seek.  Some of the readings and messages the Angels conveyed confirmed that, they were already on the right path,  reminded them of the great strength that was always  inside of them, and some showed  how to take back their power.  I think to myself, if I wasn't there that day, would they have had the clarification they needed? Would it have taken longer?  I'm so appreciative that my Guardian Angels chose to work with me to provide the advice needed and to be there at the right place at the right time to give those I read for hope, support and action plans needed toward their life purpose.

Last week, I conducted a private reading, and my client mentioned to me that she had read my blog, Thankful For What's To Come. She said that it was just what she needed during that moment in time when she read it.  My heart smiled knowing, that what I'm channeled to write and share, is making a difference in someone's life. Being able to express my experiences can help those feel that they are not alone. 

There is such a complete joy that is received by doing service for others.  You bring light to their day where there may have been darkness, you bring companionship where there may have been loneliness, you bring thoughtfullness when others may have thought all is lost.

So this week, take the time to help those you know or don't know.  Be a difference in their lives.  Both you and the one you'll connect with, will receive beautiful, motivating, healing energies that can make endless ripple effects.

I leave you with a quote, here by left by Danielle Doby,  that has inspired me, and I hope it does the same for you....

Mercury Retrograde - In Sagittarius - Nov 16 - Dec 6


It's baaaaaaack!  Mercury Retrograde arrives today & closes out 2018!


So with that, I wanted to share an extra post with you this week to help you thrive (not panic) during this retrograde, which will last until December 6th. (you know--just in time for the holidays =) 

What's all the fuss?

Have you noticed/felt during certain times of the year--more than usual - an extra heightened sense of confusion, frustration, anger, emotional roller coaster vibes, technology not working properly, travel mishaps, miscommunication with others and a sense of delay within certain areas in your life?  Mercury Retrograde can occur up to four times a year (for a duration of 3 weeks), which means what you experience above can be magnified a million times more.  Don’t worry, a lot of us in some way will feel this energetic pull and it all stems from the energy that planet Mercury emanates during retrograde. Have no fear, there are ways to prepare for these energies and you can ride the retrograde wave. Its time to look at this cycle in terms of rebirth instead of  a series of setbacks.


Image from Google
What is Retrograde?
·        Retrograde embodies the optical illusion of a planet moving backward through a zodiac or astrological sign when the planet is observed from earth.  A faster moving planet passes by a slower moving planet – creating the supposed backward movement – retrograde.  Mercury passes part of its orbit that is closer to the earth and begins to travel to the further side of the sun and from this perspective moves in the opposite direction as Earth.  It seems like it’s moving forward, then backwards, then forward as it returns to pass earth once more.  

Visualize the following: two trains are moving forward, but one is moving slightly slower which makes it appear that the slower moving train is traveling backward.  The same example can be experienced while driving on the road. Mercury is currently doing this transition and when it does, the areas of life that Mercury represents goes into a waiting period or “resting state.”  Mercury is known as the messenger/communication planet and it affects communication between others (e-mails, in-person conversations), travel, signing contracts, starting new projects, technology, automobiles.

The Effects of Mercury Retrograde:
• You might have heightened disagreements with others and notice other’s behaviors toward you are rougher than usual.  E-mails might also be misconstrued.
• Signing contracts or starting new projects might result in glitches, setbacks or overlooked key items/terms.
•  Technology or automobiles might not perform efficiently.
•  Traveling might become even more of a headache.  Slower commutes than usual.
•  You might feel overly sensitive regarding certian areas of your life such as your career or personal goals or your interaction with others.


Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius (Fire Element):

Image From Google
Those who have Fire as their element (like in Sagittarius, Aries or Leo zodiacs)  are often accustomed to fast paced thinking or living, so during this retrograde you might feel the nagging pull to slow it down a lot of notches.  Even if this isn't your element or zodiac, you will still feel what would seem like a "snails pace" energy.  If you seem overwhelmed by what you can't control, focus on what you can. You might be very restless, which this energy will try to distract you, so the need to keep the body/mind moving will crave either exercise or fun activities to keep your energy in constant flow.  This will help center you. You may find the need to literally take the time to pause, take a deep breath and refocus your energy. Meditation or Yoga can help with this. Delaying the need for instant gratification might be showing you a life lesson pattern that needs to be corrected. Stop and think of what is truly necessary to do feel or know  If your sign is Sagittarius or just for the nature of this zodiac for this retrograde, its best to not overwhelm yourself in saying yes to everything or dabbling in too much than you can handle.  Its nice to have different interests but placing yourself int too many directions will make your head spin and make you feel your not accomplishing anything. Pace yourself. Slooooow done!  Its ok to have many goals, but this retrograde will show you how to be realistic with what you can complete and what's more priority.  Take the time to review projects or goals you started and haven't finished.  That's a great place to start!


Ways to Prepare and Thrive Duing Mercury Retrograde:
• Mercury Retrograde teaches us to slow down in all areas of life—especially in the areas Mercury represents and for us to look within--reflect--be more mindful of what’s going on. Release what no longer serves a higher purpose for our energies and to acquire a renewed sense of self. 
• Mercury Retrograde asks us to take the time to think, redo or review projects and plans, be more thorough, “finish what you started”, be patient with others and ourselves, be more present in how you communicate with others and the way you express yourself.
• Remain flexible, adaptable to change in plans/projects/goals, allow more travel time to avoid further delays, reflect on the past as a way to see what needs to be worked on—but don’t dwell in the past as a way to put yourself down.
• Hold off on signing contracts until Mercury retrograde is over.  If you can’t, make sure to be very detailed in reviewing everything and have backup plans in place.
• Try not to make final decisions on anything until after Mercury Retrograde.
• Try to be more compassionate/patient with others and yourself during this time—if you can’t–try to establish healthy boundaries until after Mercury retrograde.


The necessity to prepare/know how to ride the retrograde wave:

There are pre and post shadow phases of Mercury Retrograde...energy that is pre-released and afterwards--still needing time to wind down from the heightened energies.  The Pre-phases are sometimes felt earlier on signaling to you intuitively what you need to work on during retrograde.  Post phases still nudges you to be gently and nurturing with yourself. 

•  By preparing and not stubbornly going against the current of drama, you will cause less friction during this time.  By giving yourself advance notice before retrograde, enables you to be more flexible and attuned to the energies that take place.
•  When you notice which zodiac sign Mercury Retrograde is in, it better helps you understand the influences you are experiencing from either your own birth month or just the attributes of the zodiac itself.  as mentioned above the we are in Sagittarius.
•  Use this time to see where you have been putting your energies toward and where your true main focus has been lacking.


My Experiences with Mercury Retrograde:
I definitely notice a shift in me during Mercury Retrograde, and especially within the first three days.  2017's Mercury Retrograde in August really knocked me on my behind and that is what motivated me to learn more about it and to help others in a Workshop I conduct.  I didn't want to just walk around and say, "Oh its Mercury Retrograde again, time to hide!"  I truly wanted to understand the energy taking place, and shared it with others. 

August of 2017 was very a emotional, sensitive time that left me with a lack of motivation to work on projects I had put off.  I also noticed things that normally wouldn’t bother me, did during retrograde that time.  After fully understanding how Mercury Retrograde truly benefits you, I noticed a shift in my perspective for the better.  I still feel the pull from time-to-time, but I now know why its happening and I don't feel like a victim --I now have courses of action to take.

The best advice I could give to others during Mercury Retrograde, is to be kind, patient and nurturing to yourself and others.  Use this time to retreat and not be so hard on yourself.  If you need a day to be by yourself or even if it’s just half the day—take it in order to do a life review.   If you find yourself aware of what you’ve been putting off to work on or to finish regarding career and personal goals---take the time to do it. That might be the pull you’re also feeling.  Everyone gets affected by Mercury Retrograde differently - it depends on what is being showed to you that is crucial to your life path and which astrological sign the retrograde is in.



Retrogrades in 2019:
  • March 16th - March 26th - (Pisces)
  • July 9th - July 30th -  (Cancer)
  • November 1st - November 18th - (Scorpio) 
 
Key words for Mercury Retrograde:
  •       Revisit

  •     Reevaluate
  •     Rejuvenate
  •     Release
  •     Renew
  •     Reflect
  •     Rethink

A Month of Gratitude - Veterans Week

Hello Everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and that your week is starting out productively.  If you haven't read my last post, please click here as I had discussed some personal life revelations, and announced some big changes to this blog.  As promised,  for this month, I'll be sharing with you, the many ways we can live a grateful life in preparations for the Thanksgiving holiday.

This week, we will focus on our beloved Veterans.  Even though the holiday was officially November 11th, there are some institutions and businesses that are closed today, Monday, November 12th,  honoring Veterans Day.  This is a  holiday that should be recognized more than just one day, since we have so many of our men and women still fighting courageously every day enabling us to safely live life's precious moments.  So after reading this post, try and incorporate throughout the week, the messages that our Angels want to relay regarding Veterans and service.

Image from Google
When we think of Veterans, we associate with, loved-ones, strangers,  sacrifices, strength, free-will, pride, true-colors, discipline, freedom, choices, patriotism, worry, sadness, anger, pain and the list goes on and on.  Our Veterans have and will always teach us so much about life even though we will never truly understand the memories they had to live through, that are engraved in their minds.  We do owe it to them to pause, reflect, respect and be grateful for all they have done and continue to do for us all.  So on Veterans day and every day, take the time to thank those you know and don't know who are Veterans, donate to organizations that help bring comfort, sanity and warmth back into their lives, raise your flags high, talk to your Veterans and learn their stories, and no matter what, still pray for peace.

My father-n-law, my uncles and  very good friends of mine are celebrated on this day. Thankfully they are all still alive.  There are those though who have left this earth and guard us differently now in heaven.  Our Guardian Angels have a message for all Veterans, those who have once served and now serve in heaven, along with how we can find closure from honoring a day that comes with such mixed feelings of honor and loss.

Our Guardian Angels want us to focus on "Gratitude" itself for healing.  I know this may seem repetitive, but in actuality it isn't.  We sometimes focus so much on the loss that we forget all that we still do have in this world.  Whether our Veterans are still alive or not, we are left sometimes with unanswered questions and a world upside down. But our angels want us to never give up on seeing past the darkness and stepping into a light that will bathe us in the abundance of all the good that still thrives regardless!

Take time this week to further heal from what Veterans Day means to you and see that there is still so much more to be thankful for and that there's still good left to achieve and to break through in this world---even if it may seem like sometimes--all is not done for nothing.  Ask your Guardian Angels to walk with you during this process and to lead you toward better feeling thoughts on gratitude.

I wish you all a grateful week!

Guidance, Inspiration & Comfort always,
Andrea

Thankful for What's To Come

Hello Everyone!  Hope all is well!

I haven't been blogging for quite some time.   A lot has transpired since April of my last post. Some of it action related and some, inaction.  For the action part, I've been heavily writing my second book.  Its almost complete and I'm ecstatic to share with you the next passage of my author life. It's a new style of writing that has led me down a surprisingly--intriguing road of healing and enlightenment, and I hope it does the same for you all.  More details to follow soon. I can share with you though, some of the visual parts of my book.  Thanks to my friend and talented photographer, Colleen Rose of  Bunnie & Clyde Productions, we had an incredible photo shoot capturing all the elements of my upcoming book. Throughout this post I've included some of those photos that might be included in the book.   The one below in particular, captures precisely the meaning of my inaction to not blog for a while......

Where Have I Been?

Besides being an Author, and an Angelic Life Coach, I work at a corporate job in Manhattan, New York.  It doesn't reflect who I am at all, but its where I need to be at the moment - you know -financial reasons such as paying bills, saving money, etc.  To say,  the commute is a killer from Staten Island to the city, is a gynormous understatement!  A two - hour bus ride in both directions stalks me daily when in theory its only supposed to be an hour ride tops! But it is what it is.

Working late hours in the city, the long commute, finding time to write and conduct readings, no time for myself on the weekends, all started to put a strain on me.  I felt like I was never home, barely seeing my husband, and was constantly being plopped from one event to the next without any breaks in between.  My creativity, life purpose and motivation was fading away fast! Things that would normally make me happy, took longer for me to see its effects.  The result of witnessing these empty - nagging emotions halted at one point, the production of my book and as you know, my blog posts.  I became robotic and numb due to the never ending cycle of the daily work grind, and felt emotionally run down from being at a place where I knew, didn't truly reflect my life purpose.  These lower surrounding energies, continued to block me from being in the right frame of mind to blog and work on my book fully. Trying to do so would not have been fair to the integrity of my new project or to those who follow this blog.   I knew a positive change was coming. A positive change was needed!

Partly, the photo above from my shoot, reflects the result of my inaction of this blog.  I needed time to rethink how I wanted to communicate here--bring it back to life in a different way -- enable myself to want to get involved in it again -- and get back to my creative space for my book. I'm all about the art of the written word  and guiding  others -- so I knew, I couldn't relay all this if I wasn't within the rightful energy to do so.  All this "inaction" time  was definitely needed for me to reflect and get back to my inspiring flow in all areas of my life.  The photo above also  shows how nature was one of the avenues that lifted me up from this stale energy and how I could remember who I was within.....

My Healing....

Several things saved my sanity during my inner stalemate.   I know what your thinking -- If you're an Angelic Life Coach, why  can't you help yourself automatically and just "BAM" feel better?   The simple fact is, I'm human.  I still go through emotions like anyone else even though I connect with my Guardian Angels and connect others to theirs.  Some personal moments are easier to get out of than others.  Some lessons require me to dig deeper than others. When you're so close to a situation you want healed, you sometimes can't see the answers clearly...your insight is so blurry and it just needs to refocus.  Despite all this,  I've found gratitude in this experience because I appreciate the value of my path in life so much more now.  Also,  it helped me truly understand how to guide others in similar situations since I'm living through the process.


What worked for me and what could work for you:

Below is a list of activities or ways of thinking that helped me through my time of reawakening my purpose.  There is no limit to this list.  You can add to it, or you might find that you have other ideas all together.  The goal is to keep moving forward toward more positive perspectives and keep your energy levels moving toward positive avenues.....

1. I vacationed one week with my husband to our favorite local spot and laid low. No time frames. No time limits.  Issued myself an internet detox.  Journaled every day. Watched the sunrise. Visited the beach daily.  (You don't have to book an expensive trip to "get away."  You can go somewhere local for a weekend - maybe a bed and breakfast? or stay at a friend's house.)

2. Made more time for myself on the weekends -- Practiced more Yoga and started Pilates.
 
3. Walked more in the Park. Took the time to truly "Breathe" in Nature around me.

4. Conducted self Angel Readings and connected with my Guardian Angels / Prayed

5.  Talked with my husband for sound advice.

6.  Gave myself  a "Do Nothing" day or at least an hour or two of it.

7. Tried not to overbook my weekends.  Learned to say "No" and not feel guilty for it.


8. Read Poetry

9. Purchased crystals and wore Mala jewelry for heightened positive energy flow. Used Essential oils.

10. Left the "work week" in the past and focused on fun, family and friends on the weekends

11. Forged ahead and worked on my book...which further helped with my healing.

12. ***Highly recommend reading*** Denise Linn's Soul Coaching - a book that helps you remember who you are and explore your soul through writing/journaling prompts, enabling you to journey back toward your life purpose.



What did it all teach me?

I was reminded of the bigger picture in my life. Despite where I am, and where I know I want to go, I have to ignore the inner chatter and outside drama - trying to deter me from reaching my goals and living my life purpose.   What I'm less favorable toward liking -- at the moment isn't permanent - its just a reminder to stay strong on my path and follow my vision and know the difference between action and inaction.  I mustn't get discouraged during the waiting period of life and I shall muster the courage to work toward the change I want to see. Diving Timing is real!  I also must honor "me time" and not feel guilty at all for doing so!

I know there are still more self - discoveries of healing to undergo. The lower emotions I had felt I know will creep up again. And that's okay. I know how to react to it now and what it meant for me.  Life is constantly showing you something new about your stamina and your purpose.  At least now, there's proof here that you are not a victim to what you think is happening to you.  Only you can label how you will experience what life throws at you. 

Your discoveries might be different than mine, and it may take longer or quicker than mine to see through,  but know that you will find/remember your purpose and make sense of why/what  you are feeling on your way there! It is not a sign of weakness for feeling these lower energies --  rather it is a sign to reevaluate your life and make sure you're honoring all parts of yourself fully.

From relearning all this, and the time I allowed myself to pause,  my book as I mentioned earlier in this post, has been revived itself and I couldn't be more happier!  I'm also proud to announce that I broke down the barriers of inaction toward my blog.  I heard my Guardian Angels loudly and clearly on how to pursue the creative change this blog needed.  And so, I will now post monthly themes as part of my blog posts, and starting this month, (next week), I will do weekly posts devoted all toward Gratitude thoughts/messages, in honor of the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.

I'm excited for this change in me and other revelations that will follow, which I will also share here.  I pray that you all embark on your own realizations and that this post sparked that light within you to do so.  I thank you for your understanding and patience while waiting for this post to be created after so very long.

If you have any questions/comments, please feel free to post to this blog.  If there are certain theme suggestions you'd like me to discuss, please feel free to mention here as well.  I look forward to connecting with you all!

Guidance, Inspiration & Comfort always,
Andrea R. Freeman

Earth Day - Every day!

Hello Everyone!

Happy Earth Day!

Yes, I'm a day late, but shouldn't Earth Day be every day?  With any chance we receive, we should pay attention more to the earth, how it speaks to us, how it makes us feel, how it can nurture us and how we can nurture it and enable it to thrive more.  There are so many ways we can honor Earth day- every day, such as buying eco-friendly products, recycling, cleaning up after our garbage, no littering, planting trees, flowers, protecting our wildlife and the list can go on and on.

This past weekend though, I was able to enjoy Earth Day in a way I never really did before...through the help of my very good friend, and Yoga Instructor - Laura Gotlin's class: Slow-Flow Earth Day Yoga.



With everything in life, whatever you want to achieve starts with you. If you aren't centered and aligned with your honest intentions, you can't connect to your desired goal(s). Yoga  shows you how to look within using all your senses through meditation, breathing and moving in rhythms that match your intentions.  Combining Yoga and Earth Day awareness, you connect with Mother Earth, simplicity, getting back to basics, honoring your health, honoring the light in yourself and in others, connecting you to Earth's energy that constantly supports and balances you.  When you are at this state of bliss, the world within you and around you, looks brighter!

I was accompanied by another friend of mine, Deanna, who  was her first time practicing Yoga and what a perfect class to do so! We both enjoyed how relaxed, stronger and mindful we felt with such a peaceful and restorative class.

I always love and respect nature.  I love being outside any chance I can get.  After my Yoga session, I wanted to walk in the park near where I live. It finally felt like Spring...the breeze was just right that you could still felt the warmth of the sun. I often walk in the park to clear my mind and channel the answers I seek to questions at hand and embrace new perspectives about my life  However, after my Yoga Earth Day session, my senses were extra heightened and my connection felt stronger.  I always enjoy staring at the tallness of  trees and admire how  they quietly sway in the wind and through all of this yesterday---seemed even more beautiful. 






Be sure to take the time to enjoy nature and be conscious of what's around you and how it affects you and what role you play in it.  You are more connected then you know to the nature and the healing that you experience is more than you could ever imagine.  I share here two pictures from my walk.  hope it inspires you to get out there!

Later this week I will post a message from our Guardian Angels regarding Earth Day-Week.

Guidance, Inspiration and Comfort always,
Andrea

Angelic Seasonal Comfort - Spring

Hello Everyone!

Spring will finally makes its way to the Northern Hemisphere Tuesday, March 20th.  And even though the temps may not reflect this seasonal change, the vibrational energy of Spring Equinox still holds true.  Even if your part of the world will not experience Spring, you can still reflect and incorporate its meaning into your life.

The Angelic Seasonal Comfort message for Spring is: "Celebration"

Along with our change in season, we are also experiencing Mercury Retrograde, which adds extra meaning to what we will experience.  Its pre-shadow phase started last week and Mercury goes full retrograde this week on March 23rd.  For those unfamiliar with Mercury Retrograde, please refer to my last post on Mercury Retrograde here.

To sum up, Mercury Retrograde's energy gives us a chance to slow down, and reevaluate whats going on in our lives.  We learn to revisit areas in our lives we've put off and make time to finish what we started whether personal or career goals.  Any setbacks we might experience during this three week period only brings to our attention to review, release and review certain areas of our lives -- to nurture and be more patient with ourselves.  These elements go perfect with what Spring is all about--a chance for rebirth, new opportunities and growth.


Celebrate the beauty & joy that surrounds you (Image from Google)
For Spring's energetic message, your Guardian Angels wants you to recognize that there's so much to celebrate in your life! There is so much good that surrounds you already-- more than you know!  This holds true as we experience Mercury Retrograde--when we sometimes undergo temporary stalls--we can instead look at this time as an opportunity to rediscover our intentions and recognize the strengths within our potential.

Spring gets us out of the hibernation phase and into the light--into newly aligned paths.  All the planning, hard work you've been creating - working toward - whether personal or career goals, you'll start to see--take shape! Keep nurturing yourself and the path you've chosen.  Don't stop now!  Continue to be inspired to live the life that mirrors your intentions and you'll see the benefits and results of staying true to your course.  

Guidance, Inspiration & Comfort always,
Andrea

Angelic Monthly Guidance ~ March

Hello Everyone!

Well, with a blink of an eye we are already into the second week of March! And in a few days--Spring will makes it way and hopefully warm things up here in New York.

Things have definitely been busy on my end....

I've revisited some writing projects - 2 upcoming books that I'm very exited about--details coming your way soon.  I've also been involved with three workshops since February, one of which I've co-hosted with a dear friend of mine, and Yoga Instructor, Laura Gotlin. And I've composed  new articles for the Muddled Millennial.

I hope things have been flowing well for  you all, and if you have been going through some tough times, I pray that you will reconnect with your inner peace and be receptive to all the messages that your Guardian Angels are trying to send your way.

My goal this year is to post regularly - once a week on Monday's to this blog.  It's something I definitely want to focus on more since I wasn't able to do so last year as much as I intended.  This year seems like a more quiet year  & so I want to ensure you'll all have your Monday-weekly message to start out your week on a positive, enlightening note.

So, let's get to it---your Guardian Angels want to share with you this month's energetic messages so you can get a jump on the next phase of  2018.


"Playfulness"  March's Angelic Message

Leap into life with a playful heart (Image from Google)


March is the third month of the year - representing creativity, growth, change and enjoying where you are in your life - right now.

Your Guardian Angels want you to add more enjoyment into your life.  You've been working hard for a while now whether toward personal or career goals, and its time to grant yourself a release.

As its always shown , there are no coincidences in life and especially with Angel Card Readings.  The "Playfulness" message for March, coincides with an article I just wrote for the Muddled Millennial, featuring why its important to give yourself a "time-out" to reevaluate, rejuvenate, and reboot yourself. 


Time-outs don’t just have to be quiet time.  Yes, if your day-to-day is always hectic and you feel that you’re never home, or drained, then a more inward time-out would be suitable for you.  However, if you feel that you don’t go out enough or don’t enjoy life as much, then a time-out of spontaneous excitement is what you need.   

Make your time-outs the opposite of what you normally do.  Bring more fun or serenity into your life.  There is no right or wrong way to honor what your body, mind and soul is looking for, as long as you’re doing something healthy, and promotes progress in your life.  You owe it to yourself to check in once in a while with how you’re functioning. If you want to check out some ideas for time-outs, plus my own experience with needing a time-out, I'll post  my Muddled Millennial article link as soon as its published. 

Your Guardian Angels want you to see that playfullness allows you to reignite the passion for life and your goals as well as helping  elevate your mood.  Take time this month to truly honor what you need mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Guidance, Inspiration & Comfort always,
Andrea

Angelic Messages For 2018

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to your second week of 2018! Hope you're transitioning well into this new year.  I had wanted to post this last week, but felt the need to take extra time adding finishing points to this post.  There's a lot of content here, so take your time to review everything and without rushing. We have a whole year ahead of us and you want to make sure your results aren't rushed either.

Collective Reading:

Please note these messages in this post are a collective reading - (reading for all.)  If you would like your own 12 Month personal reading (which would be even more detailed than the guidance below - for example listing each month's personal message), please contact me via e-mail:  andrea_angelreadings@aol.com.  I also offer other detailed angel reading selections of various themes, which can be viewed on my website: www.AngelicMotivation.com 

For the following messages below , it's always important to keep an open mind to all possibilities, and to ask your Guardian Angels to show you what these messages represent specifically for you.  Also, like all Angel Readings, the guidance listed below works only if you take heed to it, and willingly take action steps toward creating the best positive future for you. 

2018 is the Master 11/2 Universal Year :

Universal Year is the main theme/energy that everyone on this planet will experience for the current year, which is based on a particular number that is represented/calculated. If you follow numerology, there are also ways to determine your own Personal Year, Personal Month & Personal Day that are reflected in your numerology chart.  The Universal Year is calculated by adding all the numbers within the year. Such as: 2+0+1+8 = 11   When working with numerology and angelic numbers, we calculate the meaning of numbers by sometimes reducing everything down to a single digit.  However, this Universal Year number does not need to, for it is a Master number and it holds powerful energy.  So, we write it as 11/2 to show that we have the power to work with this number as  a whole or reduced - further it shows the choice of using the significance of what these numbers embody. 

Remember, Universal Year is a collective message for all.  When you have calculations of 11/2 it reveals great intensity for the energy during a specific cycle or transit.  In numerology, Master numbers  are repeating numbers such as 11, 22, 33, etc.  

Master number 11 represents:
  • feeling the blending of masculine and female energies 
  • higher spiritual purpose 
  • the motivation to want to do better
  • master elements presented to us within this theme
  • the self
  • creativity
  • initiation
  • independence
  • innovation
  • self-confidence
  • spiritual messenger
  • self-realization
  • self-actualization
  • expansion-evolution
With Master 11/2, comes the "foundational energy" of  "2" which adds another layer to what we are to accomplish this year.   "2" represents energies linked to partnerships, groups, dynamics, being supportive and behind the scenes work. "2" shows us patience and nurturing qualities for ourselves and others.  2018 will teach us to take our time, be flexible but to also invest our time properly with the right tools needed.  The 11/2 combo will help us to loosen the grip of our ego and still keep our gifts - meaning to connect us with others with more humility.

There will be a spiritual illumination this year.  2017 showed us an intense year of new beginnings and rebirth. It was a year of running around and losing site of ourselves in the busyness. 2018 however, will have us slow down and give us more time to regroup and get reacquainted with ourselves and our goals that were overlooked last year.  Love in all relationships will be in main focus.  The overall goal of 11/2 for this year will be to unblock our limits and help us navigate to work with ourselves, with others and the world with more harmony, balance, mutual respect and diplomacy -- to help heal humanity as a whole.  We will become more meditative, loving and emotionally aware to our needs and the needs of others while finally getting things done that we have put off.  2018 will definitely have us figuring out how to balance he production of our goals and being patient with the process in between.

Guardian Angels Energetic Messages for 2018 


Artwork by Nadia Strelkina
Beginning of the Year Message: (January through April):  "Study"

"Study" during the next four months, will represent various experiences for all.  For some it might literally mean that you'll be going back to school - whether you are young or older in years.  That class or career that you wanted to pursue is in perfect alignment to continue, or to start now!  Study might reveal that you are researching or reading up on your interests that perhaps pertain to a side job, investment, contracts, buying land or a home, etc. Perhaps your embarking on your own spiritual- intuitive growth that you wish to enhance. You might be looking into practicing Yoga or Pilates, Reiki, become a Vegan and learn about meal prep, etc. Maybe you'll train for a new sport or trade. Research for the writing of your next book of fiction,  take months off and finally do leisurely reading.   You could also explore new attributes about yourself through traveling on your own (whether near or far), and "the study" that you will undergo here, is more of self-discovery.  There is no limit to what "Study" entails and you are definitely going to be gathering all types of info along the way, including experiences, and the confidence to move toward the middle part of the year.


Middle of the Year Message: (May through August): "Romance"

"Romance" will also involve different journeys for the majority.  This could be the year that you connect with a romantic partner, that could lead to a marriage.  If you are already in a relationship, there's a possibility that you might get engaged.  If you are already married, you might witness rekindled signs of love to your current relationship.  Maybe you'll move in with your partner.  You might also finally decide to end a toxic relationship that was much needed--further enabling you to connect with whom you are more deserving to be with, or to reconnect with yourself.  Most importantly, for the middle of the year, you will fall in love with life again.  You will love/be more comfortable with  yourself and all that composes your being.  Your relationship with yourself will become more solid.  You will love more where you're life is headed because you have taken the time in the beginning of the year to know exactly what your game-plan is.  This year feels more and more like the year of watching your manifestations come to life, and not feeling the heavy burden of what may have seemed sluggish in 2017.  2017 we learned what didn't work for us and what we need to truly take care of.  This year we can hit the ground running stronger!



End of the Year Message:  (September through December): "Children"

"Children" has many levels of importance for this year.  For some, those who have been trying to have children for the first time or want to add to their family will have the opportunity to do so.  Perhaps those who've been wanting to adopt can also find this to be a reality. Maybe you'll get involved working with children regarding charities/organizations/donations.   This message also shows that your children will teach you so much for the last four months of the year-- a lot about yourself and about life.  Bonds will grow stronger.  However, what I feel more pronounced with this message, is that "Children" will also reveal to you - that which you have "nurtured" all year with your life purpose, your goals, your inner works--will start to make its presence known to you.  You will, as the saying goes, "see the fruits of your labor."  And as you go into 2019 - that which you have prepared and worked on this year, will make the world of difference in the coming years.  "Children" also asks for you to connect more with your inner child.  Make more time for happiness, love & laughter.  Trust more, and worry less.  Connect again with your inner peace which suits very well for the end of year holidays.


I'm wishing you all a productive, strong, confident, loving, fruitful, healthy 2018!  I pray that you all move forward fearlessly as to what this year has to offer for your personal paths.  Check back here weekly for your Angel's messages, including collective messages for the months and seasonal transitions.

Guidance, Inspiration & Comfort always,

Andrea
