Everyday Oracles

colette10.20

Do you ever wish that you could talk directly to your higher power – asking for guidance and receiving clear signs and signals to keep you on track along your journey? 

Whether or not we are aware of it, Spirit (the Universe, God, the Divine, or whatever you choose to call it) is always looking out for us and keeping us on track for our highest good. Even in our most challenging times, Spirit is there for us. 

But so much of the time, we miss the communication that is available to us every single day through the conscious Universe. Whether or not we choose to pay attention or listen, Spirit is always communicating with us and is there as our partner to protect and guide us. 

We just have to learn to slow down, tune in, and receive the guidance and the messages that are all around.

If you’ve ever found yourself craving messages from spirit or signs from the Universe, you will find immense value, meaning, and peace in learning to understand and recognize everyday Oracles. 

Recognizing the presence of everyday Oracles 

There are countless ways the Universe sends you messages. It could be a series of repeating numbers, a song on the radio that catches your attention, a symbol you ask for and recognize, a dream, a meaningful coincidence, or even a message in your soup bowl… 

In fact, these communications from the Divine are so common and so meaningful that I wrote an entire book about them! My book, Messages From Spirit is all about the many ways in which we can communicate with our higher power through the world around us.  

In the book, I share a story about Tasseography, a type of divination that my father shared with me as a young girl. He taught me to read messages in leftover coffee grounds, an ancient practice found in Slavic and Baltic nations as well as the middle east. It’s closely related to tea-leaf reading, which actually had its known beginnings in China although no one knows 100% of its origin.

The story goes that a close friend of mine was visiting and we had discussed the idea of going out to dinner, and then going home afterward to share some Turkish coffee and read the messages in the leftover grinds. 

At dinner, we both ordered a thick squash soup. As I ate my soup, I kept seeing images popping up in the bowl! I saw a swan, a pumpkin, and a baby.

Why Daily Affirmations Are Important!

collette10.11

Have you ever wondered if repeating positive affirmations can really work?

Many of the world’s most successful people will tell you that they’ve used affirmations as a part of their spiritual journey to success. But getting results with affirmations requires more than just saying the words! 

Will Smith has been quoted saying, “In my mind, I’ve always been an A-list Hollywood superstar. Y’all just didn’t know yet.”

This quote paints a beautiful picture of how and why affirmations work. It isn’t just about the words you say – it’s about choosing to believe and feel something before the external evidence of that thing shows up in our world. 

Visualizing and believing in a reality you want before it shows up in your physical world is a magical process. Affirmations have the potential to help us shift our reality and create a prosperous and happy life, we just have to learn to use them correctly.

How To Connect With Your Spirit Guides!

collette10.4

Have you ever wondered if there are spirit guides who are specifically looking out for you in this life? Maybe you’ve heard people talk about their spirit guides and you have an intuitive sense that you might have one (or even some) of your own, but you have no idea how to connect with them. 

Each of us has guides in the spirit world who are looking out for us and guiding us on our path. But like any relationship, if you want to connect with your spirit guides, you have to put in the effort. You have to develop a relationship with them.

Think of it this way – if you never call up your friend, they’re going to think you’re not interested in them! The same goes for your spirit guides. 

But how do you begin to develop a relationship with someone you can’t necessarily see, hear, or interact with in your physical reality? 

That’s what I’m going to share with you today!

Spiritual Grounding Techniques!

collette9.28

Have you ever experienced a time in your life when it seemed like no matter what happened around you, you had a sense of peace, calm, and contentment that couldn’t be shaken?

This feeling of solidity and an emotional well-being that isn’t rocked by the events of life or the world is what it means to experience spiritual groundedness. 

Being spiritually grounded doesn’t mean you never experience a heavy or difficult emotion. It doesn’t mean things are always easy or that you’re not affected by the world around you. Instead, it means that whatever is happening outside of yourself, you know how to access a place of calm, peaceful serenity and groundedness that isn’t contingent on outside circumstances. 

When you’re spiritually grounded, it’s like being firmly rooted with both feet on the earth. You have a sense of clarity and resilience. An inner knowing that no matter what life throws your way, you can find joy and peace within yourself. 

Why do you need to be spiritually grounded?

Silencing The Monkey Mind!

cbaronreid9.14

In today’s world, we are exposed to more stimulation and mental input than our systems are designed to handle. Between social media and the constant news stream of suffering and turmoil, it can feel confusing to know where to place our attention. It’s especially difficult for people who want to help but end up feeling helpless. 

Reminders of the pandemic, environmental emergencies, politics, and devastating world events pile on to our generally full and busy lives –  it’s no wonder so many of us are struggling with anxiety and overwhelm! Fight – Flight – Freeze seems to be on all the time and it’s accompanied by an autopilot stream of chattering thoughts and ideas limited to searching for potential threats. 

None of this is going away any time soon, so we need to learn strategies that will help us become more resilient and able to manage our inner lives without bypassing what is going on in the world. One way to help manage the inner anxiety loop is to learn how to experience a sense of inner peace, groundedness, and calm. You can learn how to reclaim your mental spaciousness by quieting the “monkey mind!” 

But in a world that not only overstimulates us, but that often encourages us to rely primarily on our minds over our other senses and ways of knowing, it can often feel impossible to reach a state of true inner calm and peacefulness – especially when challenges are beckoning for solutions. That said, we all need to take breaks to put our oxygen masks on in order to manage at the very least. 

In order to relieve the stress of your daily life by keeping a calm mind, you can learn practices that help you come back to your center and release your unwanted thoughts when they feel like they’re running the show. 

Why is it important to have a calm mind?

The Ultimate Guide to Manifesting Abundance!

colette9.6.21

When you look into your future and imagine the prosperous and abundant life of your dreams, what do you see? 

Perhaps it’s wealth and financial freedom, a beautiful home and time for travel, a healthy and loving family and community, and meaningful work that fulfills you. When we think about the life and the future we desire, there’s a tendency to focus on these types of external and material things. 

What many don’t realize is that what they truly want isn’t the thing itself, it’s the experience of having that thing they believe would give them. 

The meaning of abundance is as unique to each individual as our soul’s path because true abundance means living and experiencing the things our soul most desires, within the blueprint of the life we have been given. 

When you ask yourself, “What does abundance mean to me?” I want to invite you to look deeper than just the accomplishments, success, or material things that you think would make you feel abundant. 

Instead, can you ask yourself things like what you want to feel in your life, who you want to serve, and what experience you want to have… 

The answers to these questions will begin to lead you toward your unique definition of abundance. And only with this deeper clarity can you begin to manifest the full and meaningful life your heart craves.

The Intuitive Power Of Water Divination!

colette8.30

Take a moment to picture the ocean, a lake, a stream, or rainfall… 

Let your imagination engage all of your senses! Feel the water droplets lightly hitting your skin. Listen to the waves or the flow of the water. Smell the clean, dewy molecules. Before you continue reading, close your eyes for a minute and fully take in this experience with the water… 

Now, how do you feel as this experience lingers in your mind? More serene and connected than you did a few minutes ago, right?

The Magic & Spiritual Meaning of Water 

Water, the most abundant molecule on earth, is also full of spiritual significance and powerful symbolism. Water is actually pure magic. In many cultures and traditions, water symbolism and the spiritual meaning of water have been celebrated and studied for generations.

What Are The Universal Laws?!

colette8.24

Have you ever wondered what your role is in the grand scheme of life and the Universe? 

Universal laws give us a somewhat simple way of understanding how the Universe works and how we work inside of it. Just like there are physical laws such as the law of gravity that explain the way the physical world operates, there are also invisible laws of how the Universe works. 

Imagine the Universal laws as moving threads weaving together to form the tapestry of life. When you weave a tapestry, there are horizontal threads and vertical threads, which come together to create a fabric.

Your role in the Universe is like one of these two sides – you might be the horizontal threads and the Universal laws are the vertical. Together, you are weaving and co-creating. You are impacting and influencing reality just as much as it’s impacting and influencing you. 

When you begin to grasp these laws and live in harmony with them, you can experience a sense of trust in the Universe and in life and create a life that’s in alignment for you. 

Let’s go over some of these laws and what they mean…

How To Use Your Intuition And Trust Synchronicities!

collete8.16

Have you ever experienced a coincidence that seemed to have a more profound meaning than simply just chance? 

Maybe it was the fateful story of how you met your spouse, a spooky moment of missing a dangerous accident, or a chance encounter that changed your life forever. 

These moments of “meaningful coincidence” are what Swiss psychologist Carl Jung called synchronicities. Moments when the Universe seems to align in a perfect way to help you learn, evolve, grow, or find the perfect next step on your path. 

When you learn to attune yourself to these little moments, you’ll begin to find that they aren’t a matter of chance at all. They are the language of the Universe. The little ways Spirit talks and supports us on our path every single day. 

Synchronicities can help you trust your intuition

Meditation For Reducing Stress And Finding Spiritual Guidance

Creid8.9.21

I’m still riding the high vibes from an incredible weekend at OraclePalooza Virtual! Every year when we ask participants what they loved most about the event, we get a resounding response of, “The Guided Meditations!” 

Meditation is truly one of the greatest tools that we as humans have available to us for regulating our thoughts and emotions, reducing stress, and finding a sense of peace and groundedness. 

When you begin to meditate regularly, you’ll find that a feeling of groundedness comes more easily to you. 

Instead of being pulled and thrown by every little thing that happens around you, you’ll discover your ability to stay in your center – no matter what is going on around you, returning without as much effort to that center if you find yourself “tossed around”. This is what it feels like to be spiritually grounded. 

I think of this like learning to live in the eye of the storm. Everything can be in chaos and upheaval, but you are connected to a place of inner stillness and calm. Your inner state is no longer dependent on the things happening outside of you. (We’ll explore this concept more in my free workshop next week! Click here to learn more and to get free access.)

Meditation gives us flexibility and resilience to meet life’s ups and downs 

There’s a common myth that the goal in life is to reach a place of balance.

What's Your Favorite Tool for Transformation?!

cbaronreid8.2

When you discover the right tool on your path to transformation, it can feel like discovering a “soul GPS” or a magic mirror that shows you everything you need to know about yourself and about life. 

On the quest for spiritual transformation, there’s nothing better than the feeling that you are being Divinely guided – like the Universe is showing you clues and signals that light the path home toward your higher self. 

This was the feeling I experienced when I first discovered Oracle Cards as a tool for personal growth and transformation. Initially, I was surprised to find out that Oracle Cards weren’t really about fortune telling at all, although yes they can be used to do that too,  but rather that they were like a direct line to an inner ancient wisdom and guidance from a High Power that knew me better than I ever could. From that moment on, I was hooked.

Are You Committed To Living The Life Of Your Dreams?!

creid_7.25

Who do you need to become in order to have the life you’ve always dreamed of? 

Making the life of your dreams a reality will require your commitment. It will ask you to claim that life and the version of you who lives it in advance – before you see the evidence with your eyes. It will require you to consistently invest in yourself and your transformation. 

This isn’t about becoming something you aren’t or living a life that wasn’t meant for you. Instead, it’s about becoming the person you were always meant to be and claiming the life that’s been waiting for you. 

Dig deep. But dig with a spoon, not a shovel.

How Do We Know When We've Found Ourselves?!

feeling-carefree

On the journey to self-actualization and becoming your highest self, there may come a point where you stop and wonder, “How do I know when I’ve found myself?”

It’s easy to get stuck in this way of thinking – the idea that your spiritual journey has an endpoint. That you aren’t your true, authentic self until one day, everything changes and you finally “arrive.” Instead, what you’ll most likely discover is that you will find yourself over and over again along the way. Finding yourself is more of a gradual unfolding or an organic blossoming than reaching a destination. 

There are these moments though, where you’ll discover a little bit more about yourself. Where you know more about life or you have more self compassion. Where you see yourself and your life through a new lens. And each of these is another point on the evolution of your blossoming. 

As you grow and transform, new parts of you are revealed.

How To Claim Your Authenticity Through Shadow Work!

authentic

Shadow work is the process of looking at the wounded parts of ourselves with compassion, love, and understanding so we can transform them. So those parts of us no longer keep us stuck or in pain. 

When you do your shadow work, you set yourself free from the parts of you that have been hidden or that you’ve refused to look at. And as a result, you become more authentically YOU. 

The shadow self is born from the grief, guilt, shame, and pain that has accumulated throughout your life and has become ingrained in your patterns. Deep within you, beneath this conditioned self is something greater – something which you already are but which you haven’t been able to freely show or experience. This is your Divine uniqueness.

Why Perfectionism Kills Creativity?!

Perfectionism

To experience true creativity is to be lost in a flow state. It can feel as if a stream of ideas and messages moves through us – we just have to get out of the way and allow this magical process to happen. 

Creativity by nature has a very fluid structure, which is why perfectionism can be the ultimate killer of creativity. Perfectionism is focused only on the end game. It has a strict idea of what we plan to create and it doesn’t allow space for something unique and surprising to emerge. 

If the thing you create is not exact, if it goes outside the lines, then you deny it. Inherent in the word perfectionism is a denial of the perfection of everything as it is. It denies the opportunity for something to create its own form. 

Getting to the root of your perfectionism

If you’re starting to explore how to overcome perfectionism, you have to start by getting to the root. What’s causing this tendency and desire in the first place? 

Typically, perfectionism is rooted in our strident need for certainty. In the desired end result of approval. Often, this desire for approval from others comes from a deep wound. 

If this pressure to be approved of by another person is deeply ingrained in us, it can start to feel as though we personally will not be whole if we don’t get the approval from someone outside of ourselves. So, we learn to deny approval from ourselves to ourselves unless we reach some perfection that seems to be always out of reach.

How To Radically Accept Yourself

selflove

Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to be truly free of your past? To accept and love yourself fully and not see your life through the lens of your baggage?

This is the liberation that’s possible with radical acceptance. 

Radical acceptance means taking life on life’s terms. Surrendering to what it is without judgment – the good and the bad – and taking responsibility for the parts we need to work on. When you look at yourself and your life with this kind of honesty, you’ll experience true freedom and you’ll find the path to self-acceptance and deep self-love.

How To Tap Into Your Higher Self

higherself

The Higher Self is our connection to Divinity – to God, Spirit, Source, the Universe, or whatever you choose to call it. 

You can think of the Higher Self as your soul – the Divine part that chooses us and chooses to experience life through us. Through our personalities. This higher consciousness is the part of us that doesn’t fall prey to fear, scarcity, comparison, othering – or any of the things that cut us off from one another. The Higher Self recognizes that all life is sacred.

There are multiple parts to the self… 

Although this Higher Self is the true essence of who we are as Spiritual beings, over time and through our life experience, another part of us forms as well – the smaller self or the ego. 

The ego or the small self tends to think it’s running the show, although it really isn’t at all. This part of us sees the world through a lens of limited or false stories about reality. Things we’ve decided are true about ourselves or the world through our conditioning and the beliefs that have been passed down to us from our ancestors. Through these stories, we create an idea of our “self,” an identity we attach to. 

This part of the self is necessary to our quality of uniqueness, but can also tend to trip us up. It’s a very triggered view of the world that is shaped and formed and also influenced through our wounding. And it has very little to do with our true, Divine self. 

When you’re coming from a place of woundedness and you need to heal, it’s very hard to connect to your higher self or to find Spiritual growth.

How I Can Forgive Others and Practice Gratitude In My Life

gratitude.colette

My spiritual path began over 35 years ago when I first got clean and forgiveness is the road to freedom. Pain, resentment, shame, and anger can hold us for our entire lives if we never take the time to dive in and find compassion for ourselves and those who have hurt us. 

The tricky thing about resentment is that it isn’t about the other person at all. In fact, the person you resent may not even know you resent them! But because you hold onto the stories from the past about people who have done you wrong, you keep an energetic tie to them. 

Healing your past hurts begins when you look at your life with radical honesty. You have to take inventory of all of the places where you feel you were hurt, victimized, or taken advantage of and be willing to see your own part in them.

How To Start Your Spiritual Journey

woman-celebrating-on-top-of-offroad-car-picture-id851252520

If you’re looking for more meaning, purpose, depth, or guidance in your life, you may find yourself wondering – how does one start their spiritual journey? 

In our Western Culture, the path to personal spiritual awakening isn’t something that’s been supported as an essential part of our daily lives. But at some point, something may happen that creates a call from the inside → out. A desire to explore the unseen forces of life. The deep questioning that comes with this call can go like this: “There must be more than this, why am I here, where is the truth?”
