Blessed ~ Essential Meanings: “Something wonderful that is unearned and unexpected; grace that is an unforeseen gift from Spirit.”

The Oracle’s message: “There are moments in life when, out of the blue, it seems that everything has been orchestrated by Divine intervention. You feel blessed in ways that are difficult to express. It is as if the Red Sea parts in front of you and events come together to banish your troubles easily and naturally. You know deep down you did not deserve any of it, and yet here you are. This is one of those times. Let awe and gratitude for all your blessings guide you now.”

Relationship message: “You are moving towards a deepening of intimacy in a unique and sacred partnership. You know that you are meant to make this connection. This union, blessed by the Divine, will bring transformation and beauty to the world. This is also a sign that, even more important, you are being called to a deeper intimacy with yourself and Spirit. With this new development, you will see evidence of grace in your life.”

Prosperity Message: “Unexpected windfalls and good fortune come your way now. You are in a phase where any difficulties or obstacles that have stymied your success seem to disappear on their own. Be ready to receive. The windows of opportunity will open wide. Accept the blessings given to you now, and do not forget to share them.

Protection Message: “Humility is called for now, as grace is an unearned gift. You did not gain this by your own desires or actions. To be who you need to be, you can no longer do what you did. In a way, you have hit rock bottom and what is required now is nothing less than total surrender. Then you will be blessed.”*

This is a message of Faith and Trust. Knowing that the Universe has your back, even if you have been slightly off course lately. You may feel overwhelmed, you may be a little (or quite) stressed. You may feel bogged down by responsibilities and obligations when you just really want to fly far away and be free. Maybe despite all the positive energies coming through you still feel stuck, or are having trouble releasing that which no longer serves you. Maybe you are still holding on to why you think you cannot move forward or don’t deserve to.

Despite all that, something amazing is coming your way! Yey to that! Blessings are on their way to your right now, despite whatever may be going on around you. This is confirmation of the deep love and support that the Universe has for you. And who doesn’t love an unexpected gift!

Receptivity is key here and to be in the receptive state, use gratitude. Just keep putting it out there how thankful you are for all that you have and all that you Love. Just how lucky you are to be here, right now, reading this, existing in this crazy, amazing, magical world. During the shift of ages, into new and undiscovered realms.

The beginning of your very own faery tale…

This was another outcome card via a second reading – online. ❤


The Oracle’s message:

When spring awakens the world, joy and excitement can be felt all around and at your very core. Blossoms burst from trees overnight, birds return home and sing their glorious song, and nature is full of promise. Miracles beckon all of us. This is one of those times in your life when new ideas inspire you and new opportunities bring you hope for seeing your dreams come true. All is well in your world, and you have the energy you need to feel renewed. Allow your heart to fill with enthusiasm. Let your light shine, for this, is a time of good fortune.

Relationship message:

New energy enters old relationships, and new relationships are bursting with the sweetness and vibrancy only encountered when winter gives way to spring. This is a time to connect with others and share excitement, passion, and hearts full of joy. This card is a very auspicious sign with respect to love and partnerships in all forms.

Prosperity message:

You have every reason to be optimistic right now, as things seem to fall into place magically. New opportunities remind you that abundance is available to you. Delight in the bounty that begins to appear in surprising forms. Stay curious and know that your hopes and dreams are being fulfilled. It’s as if new life suddenly infuses your projects, work, and creative ideas with a kind of electricity that crackles with exciting potential. Fortune is smiling on you.

Accidentally found this video while researching, which prompted me to do an online reading HERE – using the ‘Blessed’ Card outcome in the video to find the deck.  I haven’t been involved in the mystical side of fortune telling for many, many years. I became glued to this reading, aghast, as really apt for November 2017. Well, for all this year…I mean, REALLY, spot on. ;o) The positivity through both readings encouraged me to post, to share – always loving positive affirmations. ((( ❤ )))

Big love to you all. xxx ❤ Wishing you beautiful outcomes, too. ❤

…and finally, a positive for December through to February 2018. ❤

Those are three readings that I will remind myself of as I walk, tip-toe, through the difficult transitional stages of major change.

  • Health: Hyperthyroidism – DVT (blood clot) – Kidney Stones – hair falling out – etc. Hospital and doctors
  • Love: Break up after 18 yrs.
  • Death of loved ones
  • Loved ones with cancer – going through enormous pain (thankfully, on the mend)
  • Being dropped by the publisher (Debut) in the middle of a book series, struggling with revisions of the two later books because of this. Deflated.
  • Financial difficulties
  • Son diagnosed with ASD (Asperger’s)
  • Secret Admirer – confessed genuine feelings spanning years (head whizzing, adding more confusion)

I’m not going to ever forget the catalyst events of 2017 which are leading to new beginnings as I learn to let go and heal ;o) I tend to not air my private life, but something is telling me this is also a form of letting go, to just share it, to be unguarded once in a while. I find this difficult, but this is me doing exactly that. Ernest Hemmingway said to write hard and clear about what hurts – in that light, perhaps my writing will permit me to really connect with my characters emotions, I tend to connect with them that way normally, but somehow, I’ll be in the moment when they are and boy, it will be dramatic. :o) Book two WILL be completed/revised/and self-published next year. Yup, never giving up! Dandelion Wind, a new novel, is in some ways a reflection of what I’ve gone through, in part. I’m really looking forward to completing that one – facing truths in a raw yet fictional form, something about it feels good. Guess I’ll understand it more once develop it further.

So, my lack of presence online, writing, sharing art, is a reflection of these traumatic events, as I’m taking time out to recoup, but I promise, will be back very soon. (((( ❤ )))


Love & light beautiful people,

thank you…



Have you heard of hypothyroidism?


hypothyroidismFor a while now I’ve been losing my hair, gaining weight yet not eating properly, having emotional ups and downs with increased anxiety over things I would previously take in my stride, add to this brain fog/difficulty concentrating and fatigue. All of which I put down to the menopause, and didn’t think anything more of it until a couple of weeks ago when the nurse (routine check-up) advised me to get a thyroid blood test. Well, today, the results came back and the Dr confirmed that I had extremely low hormone levels – but instead of the menopause, my symptoms are due to hypothyroidism, and this, in turn, also explains my low vitamin D levels. It was quite a shock, though a relief in one way, I wasn’t going insane and there would be no more struggling alone. ;o) Luckily, over time, on medication, I should get my hair back and some form of normality…phew!

This year I’ve also been trying to complete my second book but it has been so difficult trying to concentrate and I had actually put it down to writer’s block. Yup really, seemed logical to me. Hopefully, within the next three-six months, my brain will start to clear and writing will be much easier than it has been this past year.  It’s quite strange because even though my memory in areas of spelling/grammar has deteriorated due to not being able to focus, I still remember all of the story elements. Those nagging characters just won’t let me be, thank goodness. :o)

I normally keep personal stuff off the net, but I wanted to briefly share my experience as someone else might be going through the same sort of thing and you never know, this post may help. Below are a couple of links that explain this condition, etc.

There’s no way of preventing an underactive thyroid and most cases are caused by the immune system attacking the thyroid gland and damaging it. The symptoms begin so gradually that you and your doctor might not notice them until the condition is well advanced. Low levels of thyroid hormone result in a slowing down of the mental and physical processes of the whole body. Once treatment has started these symptoms will improve over time.

Hypothyroidism is a condition that cannot be cured, so hormone replacement is the only way to help the body regulate TSH and T4. Your medication will be pills containing T4, also known as thyroxine.

The only accurate way of finding out whether you have a thyroid problem is to have a thyroid function test, where a sample of blood is tested to measure your hormone levels.

Both men and women can have an underactive thyroid, although it’s more common in women. In the UK, it affects 15 in every 1,000 women and 1 in 1,000 men.


These are the most common symptoms:

fatigue and tiredness
increased awareness of the cold
dry and coarse skin
hair loss
hoarse or croaky voice
muscle weakness, cramps and aches
pins and needles in the fingers and hands (carpal tunnel syndrome)
heavier and longer periods
fertility problems
low libido
weight gain
puffy face and bags under the eyes
slow speech, movements and thoughts
low mood or depression
memory problems
difficulty in concentration
slow heart beat
slightly raised blood pressure
raised cholesterol
slowed growth (in children)
