Question Your Direction

When you cannot hear us in your conscious state, we speak to you in your dreams. We say loving words that remind you of the truth of the life you are here to live. The truth is, your life is not a non-stop pursuit of attaining with the outcome then being love and joy.

The truth is, as you live a life in which you feel love and joy, you stay at the level of BEING. This BEING is your natural state of love and joy. With love we say don’t search so hard, don’t strive to be what you are not. We say instead, allow your inner light of love to be what guides you forward in your life….We love you Dearest Ones…We hold you in our hearts as we walk beside you during your days and nights……The AncientsThe other day I woke to the message, “You are living your life so archaic.” I asked what this meant? I was then shown I was doing what I felt was safe and accepted. Entering my day with this message made me start paying attention.

It seems as if my Group is really wanting me to be aware of the direction I was going because today, I woke to this message: I had been moving back into the old energy. The energy that said you “you must do to achieve”. I knew this message was true because I had been feeling the pressure, the uncertainty and the frustration that I felt twenty years ago. The feeling of always trying to attain instead of enjoying and being.

I had to look at this. What was I reaching for? What was it I was hoping to achieve? Why was I giving up myself? And that is what I was doing, giving up myself. That part of me that knows to flow with life. The part that knows I am here to live in a loving reality, that supports the energy of me and my Ancient Self. That part that does not force the messages to come, instead opens and allows the messages to come into this reality in the way that benefits those who are receiving them.

This message has been under the surface for several weeks now and it showed up perfectly in the last Living Your Empowered Life zoom video. I stepped back from the forcing it to be what we are told things should be or look like and allowed. By allowing, the messages of the Ancients were shared in a wonderful uplifting fun way. That is perfect because that is what the intent of the group was all about in the first place.

Not much is changing in what I have been doing other than, I am stepping back and away from the trying, and I say trying because it cannot be done, to force the work I do into the mainstream ‘you gotta do it this way framework’. I am moving back into the, I allow this to be what it is meant to be. As I do this the beauty and magic of the work shines through.

I do believe this is why I was guided back to the Hawaiian Islands. On the islands you are reminded to move with the flow of life, not force against it. There is a gentleness and a sweetness that is added to life when this is done.

Is it time to look at your life and ask the question, “Is what I am doing supporting who I am? Or am I doing what I was told I have to do so that I may achieve and become something I was told I am to be?”

I am not saying drop out of your life as it is. What I am saying is, it is time to look at those parts of life that do not support you in a loving and healthy way and be willing to let them go. Be willing to implement a new way that adds joy and love back into your life. Be willing to go deep inside and find who it is you truly are. What it is you want to do. Let go of the, it can’t be done this way, or I am not here to be happy because I must do. Instead, identify what does not feel right to you, try doing things differently, notice what feels great and keep that in your life.

This is your life. Find the way to live your life in which you feel love and support for who you are. That way that brings your smile back to your face. Walk with an open heart and let the world see who you really are. Amazing how that attracts to you, life supporting experiences.

Have a fabulous day!

Fractionalized Thinking

People ask me how I receive the information that comes to me. And the truth is, the information comes to me in a variety of ways. One of my favorites is to sit down and ask questions, allowing the answers to flow in.

The other day I was preparing for the online Empowered Empath class. I knew there was a specific message for the group that was staying on the outer layer of my thoughts. I decided to use one of the techniques that I employ to draw the information to my conscious mind. I sat down at the computer and began asking questions. Below is how I accessed the information and how it came in.

Q: What is it I am to bring into the consciousness of the women this week in the Empowered Empath class?

A: A strategy that keeps them in the moment of conscious understanding.

Q: What is that strategy?

A: Emboldened ideas. Ideas that change the course of their lives in the moment.

Q: What are the emboldened ideas?

A: Fractionalized thinking.

Q: What is Fractionalized Thinking?               

A: Not thinking into the day in lengthy periods of time. Replace this with thinking in shorter periods of time. The brain is at work at every given moment, racing forward with thoughts of what has been experienced at earlier times. To change this seems a daunting task for many as they are looking to create a full day of new thought.

Fractionalized thinking allows the re-creating of thoughts in time periods that fit the individual. Choose the time that that fits your timeline of thought. Choose these periods to create thoughts that take you to the place you would like to be.

With the empath class this would look something like:

Thought that has been established: “I am not safe out in the world, I go into energy overload.” With this thought there are images of external stimuli with internal damage. This may appear as seeing crowds of others with their energy attacking the believer of this thought. The result is the person loses their sense of self as they are at the mercy of others’ energy which now causes them some form of pain. As this occurs, there is a response to this in the physical, emotional and mental bodies.

Using the fractionalized thought process derails this. During each hour or time period chosen, the individual visualizes a time frame in front of them. This time frame reflects life situations. These may be interactions with family, friends, in public places and so on. With these visualizations comes the image of the individual standing in their light while others are around with no bleed through, energetic connections or other energy depleting images.

Continuing in the visualization, the individual sees their actions, words, reactions and interactions with others fully empowered, seeing themselves strong in their energy fields, their personality, with their individual thoughts, actions and reactions, fully supporting the personality they are now. The individual sees their energy field glowing and strong with colorful energy encasing them with no connection to another.

After this information came in I decided to check online if there was any other information about “Fractionalized Thinking.” I found reference to it in areas of math, working with fractions i.e., division. For me that made instant sense. With Fractionalized Thinking we are dividing our thoughts between what we have known to what we wish to experience.

Later that day I went for a walk. As I was walking, I was in my head thinking about love. Of course I was looking at it from what I had experienced up to this point in life. All of the sudden, I “heard” the words, “Fractionalized Thinking.”

Since I was practicing Fractionalized Thinking, I divided my thoughts on love from what I had known as love to this point to experiencing love in a different way. With that I thought, “Show me pure love.” I took two steps then looked to my right and there stood a blue heron. Before I could register that, a beautiful hawk appeared in the sky and his shadow was cast over me as he flew by.

Both of these birds are highly important to me for many reasons, the hawk in particular. I associate the hawk with my late husband. We would be going for a drive somewhere and every few minutes, or so it seemed to me, he would spot a hawk and comment on it.

After his passing, I was driving into Albany and it was already dark. I was missing Rob very much and I was in tears. The next thing I knew, a huge hawk appeared and flew by my windshield. If the windshield had not been there, I would have felt the air on my face from his movement – he was that close.

So for me, in that one moment of Fractionalized Thinking, I saw and felt pure love again. Possibly you can use this technique also. Have a happy day.



A Glimpse Into My Life

In those times of aloneness, you are not alone. As you walk your human journey you are Grace and Beauty even at those times you do not see this. Each moment brings you the promise of a greater understanding. To find this understanding that seems so out of reach is to silence the mind, close your eyes, breath deeply, and begin your journey inward with out judgment or fear. You Children of the Universe are Magnificent Beyond the Scope of Human Understanding……The Ancients

While working with people over the years I have come to realize many people believe I have lived a charmed life. This is not the case. I am writing this to give you a glimpse into my life. It isn’t so different from what other people have experienced. And the same as others, I have asked the question, if I am creating this life why did I choose the experiences I did?

My early life was far from charmed.  I experienced emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. The adults in my life had alcohol and drug addictions. Violence at times was a daily occurrence. There was little stability and many times, I didn’t know where I was going to be living next. I grew up being the caretaker of those who were supposed to be taking care of me.

The first thirty years of my life reflected what I had learned as a child. I had abandonment and trust issues. I judged myself as harshly as those around me did. I had no voice and one of the only ways I knew how to express was through anger. I slowly and steadily slid into the life I grew up in.

At times I didn’t just fall to my knees, I fell to the point my elbows scraped the ground. I had no idea how to reach out to others. How could I? I had been taught not to trust, not to believe and that I did not deserve.

Those teachings were reflected in my outer reality until I chose to say enough, come to understand the only way this was to change was if I chose to look at myself. There was a part of me that has always understood that I could put the blame for my life being what it was on others but, that was not true and would not help me. Somehow, I knew, that if I wanted change in my life, I had to own it. If I didn’t like what I was choosing to live it was up to me to change it.

Of course, I kept attracting the same types of situations. I began to question them, to look at them differently and allow them to take me into my journey self-awareness. I no longer accepted them as what my life had to be. That is when my life moved forward.

I often read posts about people being strong, fighting against a believed injustice and that they will survive. I used to feel that way. But now, I know what this life has taught me. The experiences in my life taught me compassion, tolerance and understanding. My strength is in my ability to give and receive love. My strength is in not surviving this life but, living it.

This is a time of empowerment. This is a time in which to be compassionate, tolerant, understanding and filled with love. Let it begin with you and move out from you. Have a beautiful day…..Cherry


Your Chosen Human Skin


We have heard your repeated question, “How do I move past this human-ness?  This small ego self?”

Children of the Universe, we remind you, in the infinite wisdom of all that you are, you chose these beautiful selves. There is no mistake. There is no smallness. There is only the experiencing from the reality of who you are in this present moment.

We ask you to no longer dismiss the chosen life as inconsequential, as an imperfection in which you must endure until the day you depart the chosen identity.

In this perfect moment Darling Ones we ask that you allow the light of the Essence of your Being-ness to flow unhindered into the beauty of this life you are walking.

Look around you Darling Ones. The flower that blooms in the spring does not look at the sky and wish it were not in the form it is. The snake that slithers through the tall grasses, stopping to curl up on a rock to bask in the warmth of the sun, is not waiting impatiently to finish the life it has chosen. The insects flutter about, the birds soar through the air, the animals walk the earth. In the waters, life follows the currents with none lamenting about the imperfections of the forms that bring about their experiences.

As with you, the knowledge lives within each as to why the experience was desired, then created into form.

Dear Children of Earth, we ask that you no longer push away the miracle of life you are. Instead, come to understand the wonder of all that you are. Allow the light of your Divine Essence to enter the Being-ness of you.

With our hearts that sing your praises, Dear Ones, we send you the message to cherish this Earthly walk……….The Ancients.

Create Your Tribe


For three days this week I joined a group of over 500 women for the Women’s Rocking Business Conference in Santa Cruz California.  A beautiful women name Sage Lavine had a vision to bring women together with the message they are loved, supported and can create amazing businesses.   Sage, I thank you for this.

One of the many things that I was reminded of is a message that Spirit has been sending to me for many years now and that is, we are not here to do things alone.  This had been a challenge for me much of my life.  Throughout my early years I received the same messages many other people have received and that is, it was not safe to reach out to others and ask for help.  The message that I was not worthy of the love and support of others.  That I could not depend on others and that I would be ridiculed if I did ask someone to be there for me.

Even though I left much of that belief system many years ago as I began to love who I am and to know I, like everyone else is worthy, I kept falling back into the pattern not reaching out to others to share what I was doing or ask for support.  Okay, maybe I would reach out a little but, that is all I would do.

Through the three days of the conference I received the message of the importance of having a tribe.  This message was reinforced repeatedly.  I saw how having a tribe would not only help me but, how by being a part of tribe, I could assist others too.  I came back from the conference and began reaching out too many of the women I had just met and to the women I know to bring together a tribe.  This tribe is not only my support and family, it is support and family for the other members of the tribe.    What a powerful force of life this tribe creates.  An energy that surpasses what I can do alone.

If you are standing out on the sidelines feeling as if you must do things alone.  That your dreams are not worthy or that you are not worthy, I want to tell you now, that is not true.  You are a Divine Being who has come here with a purpose.  You are beautiful.  You are powerful.  You are Amazing.  As you realize this, reach out to others so that you may receive and give love and support.  Bring your tribe together.  This is a gift not only for you, it is also a gift for others. IMG_2680

This Moment

You have The Now…The Present…Live in this Moment. What has been, has been. It is was an experience. What is to come, is to come. Let this moment be what creates your next moment. Those sound like challenging words. We are taught to look at what we have experienced and judge the experience, ourselves and all that participated in the experience.  If you are reading this, it may be time to let go of that training and….

  • Step to this moment
  • Allow the emotion you feel now
  • If you look backwards at what was, do so with the intent of learning from the experience without any judgment
  • Breath back into this moment
  • Hold love and for yourself
  • Breath into this moment
  • Feel yourself free of the emotion
  • Be happy with you as you are
  • Step forward to the next moment….you do not know exactly what you will find there but, you will know that you have created it free of old judgments and pain.


As I read the headlines, I said a little prayer and asked my ‘Group’ to help me understand what was happening and to assist us in this time of unrest.  As soon as I said this prayer the word ‘juxtaposition” was whispered through my mind not once but, three times.

As I wondered why this word is the one that came in after my prayer, I decided to go to the dictionary and look up its meaning.  Here is the definition:

  1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
  2. the state of being close together or side by side.

As I read the definition visions began moving through my mind.  These images were of the world leaders arguing among themselves, threatening missiles, damage, and war.  I did not see just the leaders, I saw the masses agreeing to putting up walls to keep people out, dividing and killing over religious beliefs, claiming supremacy due to race and on and on it went in my mind until I felt a bit sick to my stomach.

All were acting like small children over what they believed they own or want to own.  The tit for tat in their behavior.  Small children throwing temper tantrums.  All without concern for the affects their actions will have on Earth or the life that inhabits it.

My mind instantly refocused to the most current events that many people are facing, Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Jose. In detail scenes of evacuations, rescues and the people who returned to their homes to find there was no home to return to.  The wild fires blazed through my mind.  Again, mass evacuations, people in a state of fear for the animals and homes they had to leave behind.

The difference between these events is the reaction and actions of people.  One stayed at the basest of the human ego, pushing for destruction.  The other brought union.  There was no division due race, religion, politics, or social status, there was only person after person coming together to help those in need.  People leaving the comfort of their homes as they raced to these sites, rolled up their sleeves and dug through the rubble with the intention of giving someone hope that life as they knew it could be restored.  No sleep, sharing the little food and water that was there with others along with holding those that grieved their losses.  Eyes that felt compassion, voices that consoled, once again hearts that had opened.

Our daily lives are filled with these same contrasts.  They may seem smaller in comparison and much more personal yet, they are adding to the whole.  In other words, we are creating our realities.  Possibly now is the time to choose to love ourselves along with all life completely.   As we do this, we can change the outer reality to one of love, peace, and harmony.

A suggestion for adding love, harmony, and beauty into the world is: First remember your world starts with you and moves outward.  Start your day with a meditation in which you focus first on self-love and acceptance.  As you feel this, send love and acceptance out into the world.  Visualize peace within yourself, until you feel calm and comfortable in your own skin.  Let your mind wander out seeing the world at large.  As you do this, visualize peace for mankind.  

 It is important to remember as you envision, feel, and believe you add energy into mass consciousness.  If you see separation for yourself for reasons of race, religion, political group, or nation, you add that belief of separation into the physical reality.  See the world united in love.  This may not seem like much but, it is in truth immense and touches the whole. 



We are perfect expressions of perfect LOVE

I am/we are a perfect expression of perfect LOVE here and now…..Richard Bach

I was in a mall in Yakima Washington when I bought my first copy of ‘Illusions:  The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah”.  As I came out of the bookstore I looked for a bench to sit on.  No bench in sight, I perched myself on the masonry that surrounded the flowers in front of a store, leaned my back against the wall and began losing myself in the mastery of this small book.

Illusions touched a chord of awareness that lived inside of me.  After reading Illusions I began looking at life in a different way.  Questioning what was accepted as truth and asked if it really was true?   Then I would get entrenched in what I considered life, becoming the sleep walker in the dream once again as I forgot to question what I was accepting.

When I felt small and helpless in the illusion of my life, this book with the blue feather on its front cover would re-appear for me to read once more.  Each time I read this book I would move out of the complacency I was in and back into being a questioner not quite realizing that I was actively creating my life.  That knowledge would come at a later time.  Over the years, I have had and given away many copies of this very insightful book.

Here recently a dear friend of mine asked me if I had read Illusions II?  There was an Illusions II?  Well no! I had not read it so, I ordered it immediately.   I am now in the process of reading another Richard Bach writing that brings not only my brain to life, my heart re-awakens too.  A sweet reminder for me to question what I have lived and why I have chosen to live it.  To wonder why I have drawn to me certain lessons, their relevance and purpose of these lessons in my life.   Yet, most importantly the writings remind me to question what I have believed, which allows me the freedom to discard or move past the experiences that I have outgrown.

The teachers for our life lessons come in many forms.  Sometimes a simple writing, sometimes it may be a person or an experience that wakes us from our slumber so, that we may question and create our dreams.  If we never question we stay sleep walkers in life.  We keep the knowledge of being the Creators and choosers of our life path buried inside.  Without this knowledge we feel as if we have no choice but to be carried away in the current we have been told is life.

This is a powerful time of awakening.  As you attract to you those things that make you look inside don’t shut them down in fear.  Instead allow yourself to question.  Why did I choose this?  How has it assisted me?  Is it still assisting me?  What fear keeps me from letting this go?  What would I prefer in my life?  How do I create it?  Who do I ask for help?  Why do I not allow myself to ask for this help?   Remember, this is an amazing journey of your design not something that is just happening to you.

A Testimonial

Thank you so much Andrea for this wonderful testimonial of the Hawaiian Experience Retreat.  It was a joy and an honor to co-host this amazing event…..Cherry

I took part in Cherry and Vickie’s Hawaii Experience retreat on the Big Island in late January/early February 2017, and wow, what an experience it was!  Actually it was a whole series of totally amazing experiences.

Vickie provided us with a wealth of information about our astrological charts, which she prepared for each participant.  She gave us the tools to understand the various aspects of our charts and answered a lot of questions I’d had about astrology.  Her seminar on essential oils was extremely informative, and I really enjoyed learning the TRE relaxation techniques, which I am continuing to use.

Cherry’s channeled messages always amaze and inspire me.  I can’t easily describe Cherry’s gift of channeling “The Ancients,” but I can describe the benefits I’ve received from them:  greater levels of understanding; deeper insights into my own actions/reactions and those of others; relief from stress and fear; and both receiving and expressing profound love and joy. 

In addition to Cherry’s insights which focus on our inner lives, her messages also call our attention to the magic that surrounds us in the world.  That magic was on full display during our trip to Hawaii.  We experienced amazing interactions with whales, dolphins, turtles, and the Earth herself.  Several times during our trip, local people told us that what we were experiencing was very unusual.  Twice I encountered whales who came closer to shore than they usually do, directly in front of me.  When some of us went snorkeling, several pods of dolphins converged to accompany the group.  Our visit to Kilauea Crater in Volcanoes National Park proved to be particularly magical.  A ranger told us that the lava would be way too low in the crater for us to see.  Then Cherry gathered us together, called to the Goddess Pele, and lava began to dance high above the rim of the crater.  When Cherry dispersed the group, the lava subsided again below the crater rim.  I felt so very privileged to have been a part of that — and part of the entire trip.

Even the weather cooperated beautifully.  On the “wet” side of the Big Island, we had only a couple light showers the first two days, then no rain for the rest of our ten-day stay.  People kept saying how unusual that was, too!

There were seven of us on our Hawaii trip.  It’s not easy getting seven women to agree on, well, pretty much anything, but Cherry and Vickie did a great job making sure that everyone felt very welcome and included, and that everyone’s needs were taken care of.  They also demonstrated a perfect degree of flexibility, going with the flow and adjusting our schedule as events unfolded.  The accommodations that Vickie found for us (two adjacent Airbnb houses) were very comfortable, and fit our needs perfectly.  She handled all the trip logistics very professionally, without a hitch.  We had time for sightseeing, shopping and exploring nearby beaches, in addition to our various sessions with Cherry and Vickie.

I had an absolutely fantastic time on the Hawaii retreat, beginning to end.  I am now planning to attend Cherry and Vickie’s Mount Shasta retreat in June, and look forward to more retreats after that.

2017 New Beginnings


Today is not only the beginning of a new year, 2017 in numerology is a one.  2+0+1+7=10.  1+0=1.  Ones mark new beginnings.  Today is a great day for reflecting on what came to completion in 2016.  This would not have happened over night.  It was a steady walk through your individual process.  Today is also a great day to set in place what you would like to create and experience as you move forward.

To understand where you are in your process, is to look at who and what you have attracted into your life.  There are no accidents.  As you step into your awareness you come to understand that everything in your life is there because you have attracted it to you.  With awareness comes the knowledge you design and create the adventures you are experiencing.  Each step on your path has brought you information that assists you in your process of creating.

If you are filled with love and joy with all that is around you, wonderful!  If what is around you does not bring you joy and love well, that is wonderful too.  You may wonder why this would be wonderful.  Simple.  You can look at what is in your life, see how the person, place or thing supports a belief that you hold and allow that belief to continue to develop and create positively or look at the belief, find the pattern, dismantle the pattern by coming to understand it so, that you may create something different.

Here are a few examples:


If you are saying you want a loving relationship whether this is a romantic one or with family and others, does not matter.  Look at the people in your life.  Are the people representing what you say you want?  Are they loving or aloof?  Do they honor and support themselves or are they sabotaging their lives?  Do they set loving boundaries along with honoring other’s boundaries?  What bothers you about those closest to you?  What do you love about them?

As you are look at the people in your life, reviewing what you call negatives and positives see where these attributes live inside of you.  There are those attributes you will feel do not belong to you.  This is very well the case.  You may have attracted these people in so that you would look at your belief in what you deserve.  How have you held a belief that supports what others are projecting?  The more intensely we respond to a person, the stronger our lesson.

To create loving and healthy relationships begins with having a healthy and loving relationship with you. It is time to become your own best friend.  Acknowledge what you add to this world, praise yourself as you accomplish your goals, and look in the mirror and compliment yourself.  If you are having trouble doing this, be around loving people.  They will love you until you can love yourself.


When thinking of your body and striving for better health how do you support this?  Are you eating in a way that supports the body?  Do you see the foods you put into your body as matching the vibration of health?  Are you giving your body exercise?  Do you talk to your body in positive ways that support you or do you berate yourself because you see your body as imperfect?  Positive talk assist in creating health.

Statements such as, everything that I eat vibrates at the level of perfect health.  I have a strong vital body.  I love to exercise and feel my body come alive.  I am a very healthy person.  My body reflects perfect health.

It may seem odd but, in many ways your body responds to the commands that you give it.  These commands come in the form or your thoughts, not just your words.   If there is an illness going on in your body allow yourself to go into the affected area so, that you may find the origin and information the illness brings you.  Do your best to stay away from reinforcing any dis-ease.


What does your job or career reflect in your life?  Are you happy with what you are doing?  Does your work support who you are and what you want in your life?  Do you see the best in the position you have or do you only see what you do not like that is there?
If your career is not what you want or where you want it to be, look at it in the same manner as relationships.  How does it support outworn belief systems and patterns?  Where do you not believe your capable of having more?  Where are you not allowing yourself to create a better work environment?

To create different is to first see the positives of what you have.  See the impact you have on those around you and them on you.  Praise yourself for the work you are doing.  Create time to add to your skill set.  Ask what your passion is and how you may manifest this as employment.  Are you holding onto what you have out of a sense of obligation created by words and teachings from those who were in your family and the environment around you as you grew up?

To create change in your life is to remember you are the creator of your life.  The more you become aware of the outdated dialogues, teachings, programs, and training’s that run in the background of your mind, the sooner you can disengage from these and begin to create a new way.  Look at your life without judgment, be grateful for what you have and be willing to put in place something new.

You are not doing this alone.  You have many supporters on the physical and non-physical levels.  Ask your Angels and Guides for their assistance.  They will gladly lend a hand.  It is important to remember they bring you the answers and support that you are asking for in ways that you will pay attention. Sometimes these are subtle, other times they are not.  When you ask for help and the door opens, be willing to step through the doorway.

Your life starts with you. If you are having difficulty in an area of your life, let’s set up a session so that we may get to the root of the issue.  You deserve the best life possible.  Have a wonderful New Year. Create with Love & Joy.
