Archangel Michael Oracle Cards

The Archangel Michael Oracle Cards (Doreen Virtue) is a deck of 44 cards with messages from this powerful Archangel.  Archangel Michael’s name means “he who is like God.”  When you work with Archangel Michael, you are working with the power of God.  For this reason, he is a very powerful Archangel to call upon for protection (Shield Yourself, Your Home Is Protected By Angels), releasing fear (Let Go Of Fear Now, Detach From The Situation), finding strength and courage (Have Confidence, Go Forward Fearlessly), and following your life’s purpose (Make A Commitment, You’re On The Right Path). Archangel Michael knows our life purpose path and helps us clear out blocks and fears that are holding us back.   He guides us down our path one step at a time.  His guidance is clear-cut and to the point with a dash of humour at times. His strength is palpable as you use these cards.  You can’t help but feel protected and safe when you are in his presence.

Each card is presented with the theme of the card from Archangel Michael, an image of Archangel Michael, and a short prayer to connect with the Archangel.  The booklet contains a full message from Archangel Michael related to the topic.

Here is an example:

Believe And Trust
My Prayer: Before going to sleep tonight, say: “Archangel Michael, please enter my dreams and replace fear with faith and trust.  Let me be filled with strength, courage, and confidence.”

Message in the booklet:
To resolve this situation, you must believe that everything is healed and whole right now.  As your faith grows stronger the doorway to Divine solutions will open.  Your trust enables your mind and body to relax, which increases your creative energy and strength - two qualities that will prove especially helpful to you.
Possible specific meanings:
This situation will have happy outcome * Positive thinking will bring you your desired outcome more rapidly * Give worries to God and the angels * Trust the person you’re inquiring about * Believe in yourself!
The Archangel Michael deck can answer any question and with any spread.  It is a great deck to find answers to life purpose issues, blocks, and fears.  I used this deck all the time when I first started using oracle cards.  They really helped me feel safe and build my faith in God and in myself.  Archangel Michael was paramount in the beginning of my journey back to spirituality.  At the time, I was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks and he helped me understand that I was truly safe and much of what I was feeling was not even mine.  I started shielding myself daily and really felt the difference.  When I did feel a panic attack coming on, I called on Archangel Michael and he took it away.  My faith grew and panic attacks are a thing of the past for me now.  I often use the above card “Believe And Trust”  when I am grappling with an issue.  I say the prayer each night and then place the card under my pillow.  Through my dreams, Archangel Michael has helped me move through difficult times and clear the blocks preventing my progress. I can’t stress enough how wonderful this Archangel is to work with.  He is so powerful, beautiful, warm, and strong.  You can feel his energy when you use this deck.

I am featuring this deck on my Facebook page for the month of November.  I pull a daily message from Archangel Michael.  Click here to like my page and get in on the action:

Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards

The Magical Messages from the Fairies Oracle Cards (Doreen Virtue) is a deck of 44 cards related to all things fairies.  The fairies are considered to be nature angels. They watch closely over earth and all her creations.  Fairies are magical manifesters using the energy of mother earth to bring spirit into material.  Practical, wise, straightforward with a mix of magic and fun, the fairies are wonderful to call upon for everyday issues, such as relationships (Love Life, Marriage), Health (Emotional Healing, Dietary Change), and Finances (Debt Paid Off, Business Venture). This is a deck to help you attune to the rhythm of earth’s energy and the magic of manifesting your material needs and desires.  Wishes do come true!

Each card is presented with the name of the card, an image of a fairy, and a short message about the card topic.  The booklet contains a full message related to the topic.


Here is an example:

New Home
“Moving is a step in the right direction for you.”

Message in the booklet:

The fairies are so attuned to the earth’s heartbeat that they can detect changes far before we’re aware of them.  This card comes to you because the fairies foresee you moving to a new location with positive results. If you ask for their assistance, the fairies can help with this change, letting go of your present home, releasing financial worries, and finding a wonderful new place.

Additional meanings for this card:
Take steps to move, such as contacting a real estate agent * A positive change in your finances allows you to afford a better home * Someone is moving in or out of your home * A relationship change heralds a move * Healing is occurring in your home * Consider a career helping others with their homes, feng shui, mural painting, landscaping, or house-sitting
The Magical Messages of the Fairies deck can answer any question and with any spread.  It is a great deck to find answers to practical, earthly issues.  I often use these cards when I have questions about my finances.  For example, at the beginning of 2014 I had some concerns about my finances and I used this deck to get some guidance.  I consistently received the “New Home” card.  At the time, I had no idea how I could move and how this would help my finances but I was open to the possibility because I kept drawing this card.  A few months later I did move and it did help my finances, as well as other areas of my life!!

This is one of my favourite decks!  If you would like to experience it with me, I do in-person, phone, and online (Skype) card readings.  Since October is a time of bountiful harvests and abundance, and the fairies have a hand in this, I am featuring this deck in my October newsletter and in this month’s special using my Money Tree Spread.  See my website to find out more.

Life Purpose Oracle Cards (Doreen Virtue) is a deck of 44 cards related to career, life purpose, and your spiritual path.  We’ve all come here with a specific life purpose that helps to contribute to the good of the whole.  Your life purpose is a combination of your abilities and your passion which means that work is no longer “work!”  Living your life purpose leads to joy, harmony, abundance, and success. This deck can help illuminate your path with everything from your areas of strength and passion (Music, Nutrition) to required action steps (School, Practice) to loving support (You’re On The Right Path, Let Go).     

Each card is presented with the name of the card, an image of an angel, and a short message from the angel.  The booklet contains a full message from the angel related to the topic.


Here is an example:

“Reading, research, and education help you gain confidence and clarity about your career.”
Message in the booklet:
   This card indicates that you need additional information to feel confident about your career path.  Fortunately, the angels are guiding you clearly in this regard.  Please notice your recurring ideas and feelings about taking classes, engaging a mentor, reading a book, or other forms of research and study.
   You’re also receiving signs from above that point you in supportive directions.  For example, several people may recommend the same book to you in a short span of time.  This indicates that the angels are delivering their guidance to you through other people’s messages.
   There’s something important for you in that frequently mentioned book, movie, class, location, or other idea.  The angels have opened the doorway of information for you; and now it’s up to you to accept their gift by reading that book, watching that movie, taking that class, or visiting that location!
Although the Life Purpose deck is specifically designed to explore career and spiritual path, it can be used to answer any questions and with any spread.  For example, you may ask about your love life and get the Travel card.  Perhaps you will meet your soulmate on your next business trip or vacation.  Or your soulmate works for a travel agency or airline.

These cards really helped me along my path, especially in the beginning, and I still use them today.  They grow with you.  When I first started using them the card Oracle Cards kept coming up and that’s how I start my path - reading oracle cards for myself and others.  Then it became Healer and Energy Healing, which I now am and do!  And as of late, I’m getting Spiritual Teacher as I’ve stepped into facilitating workshops.  I also get Author and that is in the works too!

I hope you enjoy this deck as much as I do and if you are curious about your life purpose,I do in-person, phone, and online (Skype) card readings.  My favourite spread is one I created called the Car Spread - Life Direction.  It’s featured in this month’s newsletter.  If you haven’t subscribed go to my website and click the top right button Newsletter Sign-up.  It's also featured on my website with a special offer for a one hour reading.  Be sure to check it out.

To purchase your own Life Purpose Oracle Cards you can get a deck from me in person, on, Hay House, or at your local bookstore (call first to see if it’s in stock).



The Root Chakra, or Muladhara in Sanskrit, is located at the base of the spine and associated with the colour red which represents the awakening of the sleeping consciousness to active, alert consciousness and self awareness.

Names - Root, First, Base, Muladhara

Colour - Red which represents life, energy, vitality, strength, fire, passion, sexuality, and awakening to consciousness.

Location - Base of the spine, coccyx.  This is the first chakra to develop from 0-12 months and forms the foundation for our spiritual development as we move up through the chakras.

Element - Earth. The closest energy centre to earth, it is the root of our being and connects us to earth, the environment and our physical body.  Keeping the root chakra clear and connected to Earth helps us feel centred and grounded.

Key Words - Stability.  Strength.  Survival.  Security.

Main Purposes - Movement, manifesting, self awareness, grounding, individual integrity, personal survival, sexuality, body connection.

Primary Issues - Birth, survival, family/generational patterns, security, money, food, health, home, career, material and emotional needs, belongingness, self-approval, and feeling inspired.

Mental/Emotional Issues - Anxiety, depression, loneliness, insecurities, mental confusion (feeling ungrounded), unconfident, abandonment, indecisive, inappropriate emotional outbursts, body image, addictions, phobias, obsessions.

Major Block - Fear.  This is where our flight or fight response is initiated to survive.  Releasing fear allows the energy of the root chakra to function at it’s potential resulting in our basic material and emotional needs being easily met.  Instead of operating from fear, we move forward with a deeply rooted primal trust that we are always safe and secure to manoeuvre in the world.

Snapshot of a Cloudy, Closed, Unbalanced Root Chakra -  Low physical energy, strength, and vitality - health issues.  Mental confusion - forgetful, indecisive, can’t focus.  Lack of interest in sex.  Negative body image.  Unhealthy relationship with food - emotional eating, obsessive dieting, weight issues.  Difficulty bringing your desires to fruition.  Anxiety, depression, loneliness, feeling like you don’t belong.  Feeling lost and misunderstood.  Volatile emotions -emotions that surface inappropriately such as anger, rage, deep sadness.  Financial issues - can’t make ends meet, just surviving, poverty, debt, avoiding your money problems. Just can’t seem to get ahead.  Strained and/or estranged relationships. Feeling stuck and unable to move forward in life.  Feeling disconnected from joy and play, nature and Mother Earth.  Phobias and irrational fears.  Obsessive behaviours - cleanliness, exercise, always worrying.  Addictions.

Snapshot of a Clear, Open, Balanced Root Chakra - Physical health - energy, strength, and vitality.  Feeling grounded, centred, and focused.  Healthy sex drive.  Positive body image.  Healthy relationship with food.  Easily manifest your desires.  Feeling safe and secure, as though you belong.  Able to process your emotions in healthy ways.  Healthy relationship with money - thriving, not surviving.  Able to set healthy boundaries with family, friends, and colleagues.  Feeling inspired and moving forward in life.  Listening to the needs of your inner child - taking time to play.  Feeling connected to nature and Mother Earth.  Can easily face your fears and see them as illusions.

Activities to Enhance the Root Chakra -  Grounding - bare feet in the grass/sand, gardening, hug a tree, walk in nature, imagine roots growing out of your feet and into Earth.  Physical activity - dance, yoga, sports, stretching, running.  Eating consciously - bless your food and water, eat root vegetables (carrots, onions, potatoes) and even better if they are red (beets, radishes).  Play - with children at their level, let your inner child have fun, laugh and giggle, let go.  Get a foot massage or reflexology.  Budget and manage your money - learn to respect money and use it to your benefit.  Wear red to stimulate the root chakra.  Carry or wear gemstones associated with the root chakra - hematite, onyx, black tourmaline, obsidian, ruby, garnet, red jasper, fire opal, bloodstone, coral.  Research your family history to better understand your “roots.”  Play or listen to the drums. Meditation/visualization - imagine white light clearing your root chakra until it glows a healthy bright red or use a guided meditation specifically designed to clear your chakras.

Positive Affirmations for the Root Chakra - I am always safe and secure.  I am good enough.  I have all I need.  I am grounded in truth.  I am involved and powerful.  It is safe to be me.  I belong.  I create healthy relationships.  I love my body and treat it well.  I trust life.  I trust myself.  My financial needs are met.  Life flows gracefully and easily for me. I have a beautiful, peaceful family life.  I am healthy.  I am wealthy.  I am anchored in the light.  I am God’s gift to this world.

Associated Archangels - Depending on what your are working on you can call upon the following Archangels for help:
Archangel Michael to release fears, find your courage, and to feel safe and protected.  Archangel Raphael to help with physical and emotional healing.  Archangel Ariel to help you stay grounded and connect to Earth.  Archangel Jophiel to boost your self image and feel good about yourself.  Archangel Metatron to connect with your inner child.

In an Energy Healing session, I often see this chakra inactive or restricted in some way (tied, chained, squeezed), shaking with fear and instability, or hot with unexpressed anger.  Don’t worry, it’s just an energetic expression or symbol of what’s happening in the chakra.  It’s given to me for a very specific reason and for that client in particular to aid in their healing process.  These blocks and imbalances are related to specific events/situations/conditions experienced by the client.  I am guided as to how to release the negative energy to unblock and rebalance the chakra so that the energy flows freely.

Having your root chakra cleared often results in renewed motivation, a desire to move your body, more energy and vitality, clarity and a sense of purpose.

Next month we will look at the Sacral Chakra, or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit, the seat of creation and sensuality!

The Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards

The Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards (Doreen Virtue, published by Hay House) is a deck of 44 beautiful goddesses from various cultures and backgrounds.  The goddesses work along side the angels to assist us in every area of our lives.  Their messages are forthright, yet gentle.  Feminine, yet strong in nature, they appeal to women but can certainly be used for men.  We all have feminine energy and the goddesses can help us access and embrace this powerful wisdom within us.  This includes awakening our intuition and psychic abilities, harnessing our skills of manifestation, opening the heart chakra to love and compassion, and appreciating our planet.


Each card is presented with the name of the goddess, name of the card, an image, and a short message from the goddess.  The booklet contains a full message from the goddess, as well as various meanings of the card and information about the goddess.



Here is an example of one of my favourites:
Yemanya - Golden Opportunity


"Important doors are opening for you right now.  Walk through them."
Message for Yemanya: “Like the ocean, life moves in waves and tides. Timing is everything, so when an opportunity presents itself, you must dive in at that moment. Everything that you’ve done to prepare yourself will accompany you. Yet, if you hesitate or procrastinate, another opportunity will surely come along just as the tides wash in and out continuously. Like the ocean, life is rich with variety and beauty. Enjoy experiencing its various rhythms, and allow all doubts to be washed away.”   
Various Meanings of This Card: * Don’t hesitate * This is the right thing to do * Your prayers are being answered * Get ready for a big and happy change * Celebrate your success * Know that you’re qualified and ready for this new opportunity.


About Yemanya (pronounced Yeh-MAHN-jah or Yeh-MAHN-jee): She’s an African and Brazilian goddess who’s credited with creating the sea. Every December 31, people in Brazil celebrate Yemanya by casting white flowers and miniature boats upon the sea waters. You can work with Yemanya by putting a tiny boat into the water and asking her for a wish. If Yemanya grants your wish, her waves will swallow the miniature boat, and if she denies the wish, the boat will wash up to shore. Since the sea is the root of Earth life, Yemanya’s connection to it make her a very powerful and nurturing mother goddess. She’s a protector, supplier, and one who grants wishes.


The Goddess Guidance cards can answer any question and can be used with any spread.  With up-front and direct guidance these cards help you to get in touch with your inner goddess, where your true power lies.


Order a reading with these cards from me.  Or you can purchase your own set from Hay House or Amazon.  You can also check with your local bookstore.


The Chakra Series - Introduction to the Chakras


The word Chakra (pronounced shock-ra or chalk-ra) is Sanskrit for “wheel” - a spinning vortex of energy that serves as a link between the body and consciousness, between matter and mind, between the material and spiritual world.  The body has 7 major chakras - the Root located at the base of the spine, the Sacral just below the navel, Solar Plexus located below the sternum, the Heart Chakra at the centre of the chest, Throat in the throat/neck area, the Third Eye at the centre of the forehead just above the brow line, and the Crown located on the very top of the head.  Each of these chakras is associated with an endocrine gland, an area of the body, physical dis-ease, mental/emotional issues, and spiritual lessons. Each chakra vibrates/rotates at a different speed with the root chakra vibrating at the lowest and the crown at the highest speed.  The chakras can be stimulated by its own colour, various gemstones, and energy work.  

These energy centres store a remarkable amount of information about our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state.  Keeping these centres clear and balanced is vital for our health, personal/spiritual growth, and our overall sense of well-being.  Our chakras can become clogged or unbalanced for a number of reasons, including (but not limited to) unhealthy food/drink/drug intake, lack of exercise, unprocessed emotions, negative thinking, unstable environments, inaction/procrastination, unexpressed thoughts/ideas/feelings, past life issues, and spiritual lessons/karma.  Depending on the issue or situation, chakras can be cleared in a variety of ways: yoga/exercise, meditation/visualization, and energy healing such as Reiki or Angel Guidance and Energy Healing.

Stayed tuned in the months ahead as we look at each chakra in-depth and learn what these energy centres can teach us about our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual state of being.  Next month we will look at the Root chakra.  Feeling dazed and confused?  Wearing red can help you stay grounded and focused on the task at hand :-)



In 2004, we lost our mother and step-father suddenly and tragically in a plane crash.  We had to clear out and sell all the contents of their home.  As we prepared for the estate sale, we gathered my mother’s clothes to sell.  My sister came across my mother’s favourite pant suit.  Just the night before she had had a powerful dream wherein our mother took her in her arms and cried “I’m sorry I had to leave you…I am so sorry.”  In the dream, mom was wearing the pastel suit.  So Adrienne burst into tears and slid the top off of the hanger and kept it as a keep sake.  The top moved from house to house over the years as she was just never able to give it up. 


Several years later, during a difficult period of my sister’s life, she pulled out her oracle deck, Healing with the Fairies (by Doreen Virtue) and asked, “What’s does my mom want me to know?”  She pulled one card - Laughter. She noticed the butterfly wings first - butterflies had been a consistent sign from our mother ever since she passed.  Then she saw the fairy’s dress - the SAME pattern as our mother’s pant suit.  It also looks like she’s holding onto another piece in the same pattern as if to say, ‘I know you have been holding onto this all these years’. Adrienne immediately knew that it was a direct message from our mother to find more joy and laughter in her life and to finally leave this dark period behind.

She found these items and told me this story just days before the 10 year anniversary of her death.  When we put the two together, we both got the chills.  What perfect timing and what a beautiful, powerful message.

Love & Light,
