Meditation is a daily practice and it does require practice, but it has become my favorite part of the day. I remember when I first started learning how to meditate, I didn’t enjoy it much. It seemed rather burdensome as I prepared my ritual of setting up candles, arranging my crystals, finding my headset, and so forth and so on. By the time I sat down to meditate, it was time to get the kids up and ready for school. I was so frustrated that one day I screamed in my head, “There’s got to be an easier way to do this!”
So I asked my angels to help me. I cried out, “I need your help; this is supposed to be easy!” Then I got still, closed my eyes, and waited. Shortly thereafter, I saw in my mind’s eye a beautiful angel approaching me. She had long, wavy blonde hair and her face was beautifully illuminated with love and light. Her billowy peachy-pink gown flowed in the wind like ocean waves as she got nearer. Her smile was warm and compassionate, and I knew that she had come to help. A feeling of peace overwhelmed me, and I sat like an eager child ready to learn.
She placed my hands on my head and had me say these words: “I bless my head so I can think like God thinks.” Then she placed her hands over her eyes and I did the same, and she said, “I bless my eyes so I can see like God sees.” Then I instinctively placed my hands over my throat and said, “I bless my voice so I can speak like God speaks.” I moved to my heart and said, “I bless my heart so I can love like God loves.”
As she nodded with approval, I realized that she was showing me how to bless each chakra while asking God to help me think, see, speak, love, and feel like God does. In case you don’t know, our chakras are the seven spiritual energy centers of the body. I then moved to my solar plexus chakra and blessed my core knowing that the power of God rests within me. I blessed my sacral chakra as I affirmed that I am a co-creator with God and my root chakra knowing that all my financially and material needs are always being met, and that God is my source and supply. I felt so safe and protected and I was so overwhelmed with a sense of peace and happiness.
As she began to fade away, I called out, “Wait, I have a question.” I then asked her to tell me her name and she replied, “Gloria.” I said, “Gloria, why such a common name?” She replied, “When you think of me, think of all of God’s glory!” I was elated to hear something so simple yet profound that I knew I could remember. Then she turned and began to walk away, I hesitated but had to ask one more question so I cried out, “How do I know this is not just my imagination?” She replied, “Call your friend Roxanna,” then she disappeared.
I immediately dialed my friend and before even saying hello, I asked her, “Who’s Gloria?” She was silent and I said, “Are you okay?” I could hear a quiver in her voice then she replied, “Gloria is an angel that used to walk with me on the beach when I was a little girl growing up in Panama!” I was floored; I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I not only experienced an angelic intervention, but she validated it as well! Since then, meditation became an easy practice that I can do anywhere, anytime, and if I get distracted, all I have to do is the “blessing meditation” that Gloria taught me. Gloria is still with me today as she is one of my guardian angels.
I was inspired to write this post after seeing my friends post on FB on what the acronym for money means. For her, money means “my own natural energy yield”. For me, the first thing that came to mind was the following:
M – My
O – Own
N – New
E – Energy
Y – Yield
MY OWN NEW ENERGY YIELD! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!
I love acronyms as they help serve as a tool to remember the truth. When it comes to money, we have to change our state of mind and shift whatever “limiting beliefs” we have about money. We have to change our energy to a state of “joy” to open our hearts to receive more. We have to create “new energy” to create “new results” in our lives. So as you work on your energy, no matter what the circumstances are, you will increase your increase of money. Yes, I used that word twice….to increase your money status you need to increase your energy. Seriously, no matter how bad you feel, no matter how low your energy is, no matter what drama or crisis is happening in your life…get your booty out there and move your body!
I was recently faced with some major challenges concerning my beloved husband and his health. My financial status was a concern as well as my own state of being. So I decided to increase my daily walk to a daily walk/run from a half hour to an hour a day. As I pounded against the pavement, I literally was pounding away any worry, doubt or fear I was experiencing as I reminded myself that everything is just a temporary situation.
I began to notice the outpouring of abundance from the universe, incredible support and money showing up out of nowhere to help support my family. My husband’s recovery has been remarkable and everyday I continue to write in my gratitude journal everything I’m grateful for now and what I plan to be grateful for in the future as if it’s already happening.
In the first week of September, I have already made this months goal as I could hardly worked in August due to all the challenges I was facing. I know that I will be in the overflow by next week as I increase my energy and allow all the good to come my way.
So if you think that all this positive mind stuff is unreal, think again! I can assure you that it’s the real deal because I’m the real deal. I’ll never forget what a former employer said to me when I was only 18 years old. I was working for a property investor and managed over 150 of his units. Yes, that’s a lot for an 18 year old. Anyway, he said that “money is the easiest thing in the world to make” and he made a lot of it. I’ve made lots of money and then there have been times when I have not. Those have been the times when I am in “creation mode” yet I always have what I need to get me to the next phase of my souls evolution. As soon as I launch my new passions, I’m in the overflow! It’s a really cool process and so exciting when it happens!
One of these days, I will share with you when I didn’t even realize I was a millionaire yet I was sitting on assets worth over a million. That’s a funny story as I clearly had some limiting beliefs to change. So, no matter what is going on in your life, remember its only a temporary situation and all you have to do is change your state of mind.
My spiritual teacher and mentor, Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, reminds us that “miracles” are simply recognizing THAT which is already in your field of awareness. Love it!!!
Now it’s time for me to go move my body and increase my income today.
Many blessings to all of you who read my blog!
Everyone in your community represents an expanded version of who you are. As you continue to grow and up level your life, you will attract new like-minded individuals. Those who share the same mindset are all that matter and those that don’t, it simply doesn’t matter.
Your affirmation:”I love my authentic self and share my life with a like-minded individuals and communities that love and support me.”
I have recently been faced with a great challenge in my life and have asked the angels to AMP up the messages and signs as sometimes it’s really hard to hear or see signs when your working your way through the clouds of illusion. I know that the angels always respond to my requests and they do so very quickly in times of need. Yesterday while I was on my walk, I saw a beautiful monarch butterfly and then in the evening, a crow plopped right on top of the hood of my car and stared right at me! These amazing animal totems represent change and transformation which God knows, I am really experiencing that right now.
I am comforted to know that through the process of the caterpillar becoming a beautiful butterfly this symbolizes that only the best is in store for me and my life is being transformed where only love, beauty, health, wholeness, prosperity and abundance prevail. As I embrace the symbolism of crow medicine, the crow reminds me that it has the strength to exist in the void where all is created and has the ability to see all that is seen and unseen. Therefore, I know that although I can’t see the outcome of this transformation, crow wisdom allows me to trust that the transformation is for my highest good. I am grateful for the universe communicating to me in ways that I can understand as I know that they know the first thing I’m going to do when I see a sign is look it up! I’m so grateful that they AMPED it up right when I needed to see them! By the way, another sign they sent almost immediately after I asked them to AMP it up was I found myself surrounded with white feathers while walking on the strand the other day. There were none behind the path or in front of the path I was walking, just all around me while I was relished in that thought! Absolutely incredible validation that we are truly not alone!

Imagine having an entourage of invisible helpers always working together for your highest good helping you live life with more joy, love, peace, harmony, prosperity and abundance. Imagine having a cheerleading squad that jumps for joy every time you listen and follow your inner guidance. The angels love to be of service and await our call for help at any given moment. I’ve come to know and experience this on a daily basis and I can assure you that it is real! It gives me great joy to be an instrument for the angels to communicate through and teach others how to do it for themselves. I know that as we awaken to our own true divinity we can be an inspiration to our circle of influence and that is what it’s going to take to heal every individual on this planet. One person at a time, one moment at a time over and over again until it becomes a mass production. As we learn to have more trust and faith in our invisible teachers and tune into their wonderful guidance and pay attention to the signs our lives become an act of faith and we allow more of the good that surrounds us to integrate into our daily life. Life becomes easier, more joyous and a lot more fun as we witness the everyday mini miracles which are occurring at any given moment. I’m simply fascinated by this phenomenon and overwhelmed with the love presence that surrounds each and every one of us. What I know for sure is that we are truly not alone, nor do I believe that God expects us to try to get through this life without any help. So God created the angels to help us stay connected to the love source energy that created us which is God. One last thing, just imagine something loving you so much that when you ask for help that love responds in ways greater than you can imagine for yourself. The most important thing is not to be attached to the outcome, just know that the results will exceed your expectations and the blessings will be far more than you could have possibly thought of for yourself. That’s how much you are loved!
The angels love to help us but they can’t intervene unless you ASK. They can only intervene if it’s a life threatening situation or if it’s not your time. The law of “free will” allows us to ask for help anytime and our angels are always listening. God gave us this wonderful law which helps us stay connected with our invisible helpers at all times.
All you have to do is ASK and ALLOW!
ASK your angels and let them know you need help regarding a situation, person or thing or you may ask for guidance on a particular issue. Sometimes you simply just want to know they are with you and you can ask them “what does God want me to know today”?
LISTEN to inspiring words of comfort, guidance and wisdom or perhaps a call to action. Be aware of your emotions and how you feel when you receive this guidance as this is your barometer letting you know that it’s true angelic guidance. The messages are always, gentle, loving and inspiring even if it’s not what you want to hear yet something inside you resonates with the message. The feelings may be warm and you may feel a tingle or butterflies in your stomach. You may even find yourself crying tears of joy as the feelings and words are so comforting. You may also receive your answers in dreams, visions, a gut feeling or a knowingness that resonates with you which feels just right. Ask the angels to communicate with you in ways that are easy to understand. I’ll share some personal experiences as we get further along in this blog.
LET GO of any worries and be aware of any signs letting you know that your angels heard you. Don’t hesitate to ask for a sign if you need validation. The angels love to let us know that they are with us and graciously have ways of giving us signs.
OPEN your heart and have faith that your request has been heard and your needs are being met. Most importantly, don’t keep asking over and over again as that’s like sending a message that you’re not being heard and you don’t want to block the answers that you’re looking for.
WAIT and be patient. Everything happens in divine right timing and give thanks for the blessings as if it’s already done because it really is…you just can’t see the results yet. Also, let go of any expectations of what the outcome or result is supposed to look like. Remember, the angels know Gods plan for your life and what is in your highest good. Simply say “I know that God has the best in store for me and always exceeds my expectations in ways that I can’t even imagine for myself”! Wow, I just love how that statement feels! It makes me feel so loved!
ALLOW your invisible helpers to get to work and YOU get out-of-the-way. Get on with the business of the day…SMILE, BE HAPPY and get excited knowing that your needs are being met. TRUST and have FAITH that the universe is conspiring on your behalf. Don’t try to control the outcome just LET GO and LET GOD…give yourself a break today…you don’t have to do “life” all by yourself. Help is on the way because you are really, really loved…that is the essence of what we are made of therefore it can’t be anything other than what it is and that’s LOVE!
I know that it’s hard especially if you’re in a crisis situation. Believe me I know…I’ll share my story in my book “I’m Not Afraid to Die but I’m Not Done Living”. Right now, I want to get you started on the basic steps to invoking your angels. Start focusing on everything GOOD around you moment by moment until you get through the day. Then keep doing this over and over again. This is inevitable because what you are doing is activating the “law of attraction”. Embrace an “attitude of gratitude” for everything around you including the smallest of things. This will help to distract your attention from the problem or issue at hand and shift your perception. If you find yourself beginning to worry, practice this exercise over and over again, moment by moment until you feel better. Keep reminding yourself that all is well and repeat this statement “I know that God has the best in store for me and always exceeds my expectations in ways that I can’t even imagine for myself”. You’re on your way to a better day!
I love to use acronyms as a tool to help me to remember spiritual principles. So I created this one for the word “ASK” which reminds me why it’s okay for me to ask for help. Remember to keep spirituality simple, we don’t have to try to figure out everything ourselves. When we learn to ASK for help, we don’t have to worry about the HOW, we simply need to take inspired action as our angels will immediately begin to orchestrate the best outcome on our behalf. All you have to do is affirm, “I know that God is exceeding my expectations” and let go. Don’t be attached to the outcome as that is not your job. This is based on the Law of Detachment. You are giving permission to a higher source to help guide you to the best solution and outcome and you simply have to take inspired action when prompted. So in other words, don’t just kick back and do nothing. Listen to the subtle hints and nudges to take action in a certain direction and the rest will flow with synchronicity.
It’s a lot easier to ask our team of invisible helpers based on the Law of Free Will, and invite them into our lives. There is never any task to big or too small that they are not willing to help us with but you have to remember to ASK in order to activate this spiritual law.
A – Allow something greater than yourself to intervene and help you
S – Spirit IS your source and supply
K – Know that it is done
