2010 Staying On Track by Staying Positive with Tickles and Sparkles #105

January 11, 2010

Dear Friends I am so happy that you are taking the time to open this newsletter and hopefully you will read it when you have a moment to focus on all that is positive in your life.

Each day we tell other people who ask us, that we are happy and are doing great when we really mean that we are okay and getting by. Why are we lying to our selves and to others? Is it because we really do want to feel great? Or is it because we are embarrassed of our true feelings about life?

How often do you wake up and feel great that you are alive and wonder if you will notice all the miracles that are here for you in each moment?

It is time that we really take a look at our lives in general. Think about what it is that really makes you happy in the now. Do not think about what will make you happy someday for this is setting up for a let down.

The reason I ask you to think about what it is that makes you happy in the now is to remind you of all the miracles that are present in your life at this moment.

By using this train of thought it will bring feelings of goodness and love into your heart and mind. When you are feeling good it is much easier to create by visualizing that you already have your dearest desires.

By opening your mind to all the miracles each day you will not have much time to be thinking negative thoughts.

We all have those days when our energy level is low and we really have to work on maintaining a positive attitude. It seems very easy to let go of all positive thoughts in the blink of an eye. Then we are back to square one once again wondering why it is so hard to remain in a positive state of mind for any long length of time.

I have wondered about this very thing for many years and I keep coming back to this thought: We as human beings are trained from our birth about the negative in life we hear it on the radio and on the television from family and friends. Fear is drilled into our core being from a very young age. It takes tremendous strength to stay focused on the positive and all the good in this world each waking moment of our lives. Yet that is exactly what our purpose on this earth is. We are here to make the choice in which we take control of the thoughts and feelings that we have. It is more important now than ever before to connect with others who are positive. Keep your intentions positive and constantly remind yourself of your true purpose on this earth. Do not let those with a negative attitude control your attitude. You are and always will be the only one in control of your thoughts and feelings.
It is truly rare to meet a person who's totally in control of his or her thoughts and feelings. One who is genuinely positive and whose heart is filled with pure love for all people they may meet on their path. In my life time I have met only a few people like this. I wish to meet many more before I leave this world. In fact I hope that I can stay focused in the positive so that I may become one of these people, I so look up to. Yes we are all human and even though it may not be easy we are never given a task that we cannot complete if we try.

I hope you will join with me in making this a year of transforming your thoughts and feelings by opening your hearts to allowing love to guide you and live within you. It is possible to do this with the help and support of our friends and family but they must be willing to work with you by attuning their own minds to positive thought. It may be a little tough to begin with but through focusing your thoughts, energy and words as positively as you can each day you will begin to see the changes taking place.
Believe in yourself and all the good that you are meant to achieve in this life.
I know that you can do this! It is a challenge that will bring you closer than you have ever been in knowing and achieving your true purpose in this life.

Greetings from Julie
I have been in the process of changing computers. If you have asked to be taken off this mailing list and received a newsletter I am very sorry. Let me know and I will take care of this.

This week I thought I might change things up a bit so I have a great big surprise for you. In this newsletter you will be receiving a short reading according to your birth sign. This I will be doing with a deck of cards that is called "The Answer Deck". I would like your feed back on how you liked or disliked your reading. I would also like to know if you think this would be something you would like to see each month in the newsletter. With that said I will get started.

Aries:
You are the master of your life. You have had many challenges in the past but now there is real growth for you are at the beginning of a journey. This journey may be spiritual or physical in nature. There is a need for solitude for you need to reflect on what you truly want in life. You may be ending something or making a transformation. You may even feel there is a loss of some kind. Be diligent in your quest, for happiness is around the corner.

Taurus:
For you there is wisdom learned this may come from a fair haired man or an older man with gray hair. You may see justice done in some situation that has been hindering you. You have much power over the situations in your life if you will let go of your worries and frustrations. There may be someone new coming into your life this could be a new love or friend. There is soon an opportunity to bring in more wealth. An offer it comes to you from a stranger someone you do not know or do not know very well. By letting go of your doubts you will win the battle between what to do and what not to do. In other words if it does not feel right then do not do it but if it makes you feel good go for it.


Gemini:
You are now moving ahead and there is a financial gain in the near future through a friend. If you have been through heartbreak the storm is about over and there is a new sexual attraction you may be introduced by a mutual friend. This month you will have to deal with some bad news that comes through a woman. She will be telling you about a man that has caused her some challenges. Be confident in the advice that you give out by making sure the advice comes from a positive space in your heart. Relax and find your peace for victory is at hand in some situation you have been dealing with for the last few years.

Cancer:
You will be feeling quite good and if single there may be a new sexual attraction to someone you never thought you would be attracted too. There is much good fortune coming to you in the next month. You may have felt there have been barriers blocking your progress. They will soon be disappearing. There is someone that is treating you like a stranger and has been telling secrets behind your back. You may even hear about this through a brown haired man that you know. It is time to make changes and acknowledge your own strength. Let go of what others think and be true to your self.

Leo:
Now is the time to develop your spiritual talents. Believe that it is okay to want more for yourself and that you are not being greedy by asking for it.
There is a dark haired man you know who is in very argumentative mood. This is where you will have to determine whether or not you are willing to allow his energy to affect your happiness. The good news is that you have the wisdom to stay on your path but you must be diligent in your commitment in remaining positive.

Virgo:
An ending of a situation brings happiness into your life and through the generosity of a loved one or mate there is a lesson learned that brings in great hope. You have the power to bring in great wealth by seeing the hidden enemy that has been holding you back. Take time to clear your home from clutter maybe do a clearing to rebalance the energy. You are the master of your own life. You would do well to focus on the positive aspects of your life rather that what you do not want.

Libra:
The truth is that you would love to have your day of fame so to speak. When that day arrives do not forget the friends that have helped you get to this place in life. You will have the abundance you need it comes through something that inspires you. You may even feel a bit foolish as you take the necessary steps that will bring in this abundance. There may be times that you feel extra vulnerable in some way but do not let that detour you it is all part of the journey. It is time to stop look and listen to what your heart and mind are telling you ask for guidance from your angels. Let go of the judgment for with judgment comes heart break. You can avoid this and receive the guidance you need. Ask and you will receive.

Scorpio:
You have had to deal with some jealousy this may be your own or from others. It is not a mistake to let go of these feelings in fact there are wonderful surprises at hand as you let these feeling go. There is a new beginning in the near future for you. A brown haired woman will bring you a challenge. To gain in this situation you will have to use love to find clarity.

Sagittarius:
There is someone who is pretending to be a friend this person is not who you think they are and you will soon learn the truth about them. There is growth and happiness on the horizon for you. It is time that you relax and take some needed time for yourself. If single there is a new love relationship coming in the next six months for you. It is time to let go of all greed and forgive those who have wronged you this is the lesson that will help you with this new growth that is coming in.

Capricorn:
There are secrets that will soon be revealed you will have to use your strengths to find your peace. Where there was a separation of a friendship there is a reconciliation that will be a great surprise. Let go of what other people will think and focus your thoughts on love this will bring you clarity.

Aquarius:
Thinking of going on a journey now is the time to make some plans figure out where you want to go. It may be that you want to visit a famous place or person. There is victory if you are willing to be patient for just a little while longer. At home there may have been frustration concerning some changes that need to be made. Have faith everything will be fine. There is a stranger that will bring some bad news this could be a loss of some kind. When one door closes another opens sometimes we just have to trust that there are reasons for everything that happens in our lives.

Pisces:
If you have gone through an ending of sorts during the last three months there is something that will change your judgment in this situation and will help you let go of the doubts you have had about yourself and others. There is also some kind of information you receive that comes through the phone or television this may involve some sort of scandal. Do not get involved with this situation. Use your talents to bring the good news you want into your life through your work or hobbies. Someone close to you may be jealous of the good news you will soon receive. There is a lesson that will be learned through a surprise you find the truth about something.

Happy Valentines Day February 14, 2010

I thought it would be nice to take some time today exploring relationships.
There are many kinds of relationships that we are all a part of through out our lives.
We have love relationships which we all want to be a part of. We have relationships with friends and family each being different from the other.
Many people have had relationships that did not work out for one reason or another, there seems to be thousands of reasons that a relationship fails. Soon after a failed relationship many people seem to remember all the negative aspects of the relationship harboring resentment mixed with anger. After awhile this dissipates and the person is now ready to look into having a relationship again.
It is wonderful when the person finds someone that they can connect with and they soon develop a relationship. The outcome of the relationship really depends what each person brings into it from their past relationships. Sometimes people bring mistrust into the relationship. This is because they may have had a bad relationship that was filled with mistrust and dishonesty. It may be hard for them to quit reliving the past so they afraid it may happen again to them. It seems to be quite unfair that we are sabotaging our new relationships by punishing our new love for the doings of the old love. I talk with many people men and women and many times I have seen a relationship fail because of mistrust that had been carried over from a failed past relationship. Maybe it is time to take a look at your relationships and see what you can do to keep them in the NOW! You can never change the past but you can create better relationships starting now.
Some of the things we can do to create a better relationship with our spouse or Girl/Boy friend are very simple.
Take time to listen to your partner, no matter the subject let go of any judgment and just listen to how they are feeling.

You never know what someone else is thinking! We have all thought we knew someone well enough to know what their thoughts are but in truth we do not know unless we listen to them as they talk to us.

Take time to have fun and play with your partner. The longer we are in a relationship it seems that we loose the part of us that likes to have fun with each other. Even though we are adults we should never forget how to play.

It is quite easy to light a couple of candles and have a candle lit dinner at least once a week with your honey. "Oh yah that sounds easy but what if you have kids" Well I suggest inviting the kids why not they are part of the relationship. Besides this will teach them something they will remember later in life. That is to keep a relationship alive you must feed it and nurture it.
While you have your candle lit diner with your partner you may use the time to talk about all the things you love in your life starting with the person you are sitting across from.

Look into each others eyes connect with your partner by connecting with his or her soul. You will be amazed at the love you will feel when you do this with someone you love and they love you.

Kiss your partner with passion at least once a day! Go ahead make it last for 8 to ten minutes.

We all want to feel important so take a moment and let the person you love how they are important to you. When you give you shall receive.

There are many ways to keep a relationship thriving. It is all about remembering why you fell in love with this person.

Many people never let go of the past even if they have forgiven you. They will through it at you in the heat of anger. I wish people would realize that what ever was done in the past is just that done. You can not go back to the past to receive another apology today for something the person has already apologized for.

Yes there are many kinds of relationships that we have with people each day. By taking a look at how these relationships effect us we begin to see new ways to value the people in our lives. We can also look at our self and see how we can enhance our relationships by letting go of judgment of another person.
There will be many relationships you will foster with other people in your life and there will be times that you will have to let go of a relationship because of a disagreement. Just remember to keep the good things that you learned in the relationship and let go of what ever it was that caused the ending of the relationship. There are reasons for everything, you may not believe it right now but soon enough you will.

For those of you still looking for love and not having the greatest luck!
Make a list of 27 things you would love in a mate. Describe the person that you would like to have in your life. Then put this paper under your pillow for 27 nights. Each night before you go to bed take the list out and re-read it. It may be that you will want to add something to your list it is okay go ahead. Then tuck your list under your pillow, sweet dreams.

Saturday February 13th is the Full Moon

Take a piece of Moon Stone and put it out under the moon light holding it in your hand ask to see your true loves face in your dreams tonight.

Full Moons are great for cleansing your crystals and stones by setting them in the moon light until morning light.

In the next issue of Staying on Track by Staying Positive with Tickles and Sparkles I will be doing the
Birth Sign Readings again because of the great response I received from the last one.

Eliminating DRAMA
Last week I asked the question: Do you believe that people can be addicted to drama?
I want to thank all of you whom emailed me your answers to this question.
Here are a couple of answers I received.

Yes I think I know several people who thrive on drama and seem to like it these people tend to make a lot of the drama in their lives. Is this the same thing as being addicted to drama?
Cathy

Julie in response to your question, Yes! I definitely believe that people can be addicted to drama. I know several people who are at one time. I know that I was addicted to drama several times and at certain ages it seemed to make my life better to be involved in others drama. Know what I mean? I am sure you do.
Suzie

Yes there is drama everywhere we go now days. We experience drama in one way or another each day. It seems we are on an emotional roller coaster when it comes to trying to filter out the drama in our lives. We start our day clear of drama but sooner or later we are being sucked into one dramatic situation or another. The work place is one of the greatest sources we have of drama in our life. Maybe it is your drama or a co worker who didn't the raise they were hoping for because of someone else. Maybe it is drama coming from a family member or friend. When ever someone is telling a story about another person's distress this becomes drama. It may be a friend or it may be you that is creating drama in your life, it really does not matter. But what does matter is that we recognize it and change the energy or subject that is the topic of discussion. Drama is exhausting it is like an energy thief. When you are caught up in someone's drama you seem to get a high or a feeling of excitement that last for a very short while because you are expending your energy or giving your energy to the person who is telling about the dramatic situation that is taking place in their life. When you leave the company of this person you are tired and feel as if you could take a nap.
I call it being drained. There are people who create drama in their life for attention they seem to have a dramatic situation going on just about every time you talk to them.
Say you have a friend that each time you talk to them they have a story to tell about someone they know. We will call him Steven.
Steven is the kind of person who never has anything nice to say he is always talking crap about one person or another in his life. He bitches about his work and how other workers are always taking advantage of him. When he does talk to his friends it is always about someone who has wronged him or cut him off in traffic. It is like he is stuck in his own drama not willing to recognize what affect it is having on him and his life. Drama can be as small as talking about the way someone dresses or just telling the same story to different friends over and over again.
Okay so what can we do to eliminate this Drama? Sad as it may be you may have to eliminate some of the friends you have been hanging out with. If you are really ready to eliminate the drama it has to start with you.
By changing the way you look at life and where you are focusing your attention. Instead of reacting to someone's story of how they were wronged and allowing the anger to transfer to you listen if you have too then say "I understand" then allow the energy to dissipate. Don't get caught up in the drama by putting more energy into it. Take time to be alone if you have too.
Be more creative do something like taking a long walk or dance around the house. Play music or read you may even want to get up really early and watch a sun rise. When you are focused on something positive and creative you don't have time to get all caught up in the drama in other people's lives. Tell your friends that you are not allowing drama in your life ask them to please keep negative thoughts and feelings to their self. You do have a choice in how you will react to the drama that is a part of our everyday life. By not reacting to others drama you are on the road to eliminating drama from your life.

Tips for staying on track and keeping positive as you eliminate drama
1- Write maybe keep a journal of positive thoughts.
2- Make up a song and sing it out-loud.
3- Take a nature walk notice all the wonders along your path
4- Write maybe keep a journal of positive thoughts.
5- Make up a song and sing it out-loud.
6- Take a nature walk notice all the wonders along your path
7- Meditate
8- Say affirmations
9- Put on your favorite music and dance around the house.
10-Play
11-Imagine all the things that make you happy

I hope that you will find that by eliminating drama you will feel better and your friends will join you in your quest to be free from Drama in their lives also. As I said before there are friends that thrive on drama these friends are the ones that it may be time to let go of so you can move forward in your life.
Remember that your thoughts and words are energy this energy can be positive or negative and affect your life in positive or negative ways.
As for Me I am choosing to focus my energy on the positive and all that is good in my life. Yes I too have been guilty of drama, now I choose to let it go. I hope you will join me.

When Rationalize Becomes Rational-Lies
Most of us do not even recognize when we have been rationalizing yet when we do we are telling our self rational-lies?

What is the meaning of rationalization?
1. Process of rationalizing: the process of rationalizing something, or an effect of rationalizing something
2. Psychoanalysis defense mechanism: in psychoanalytic theory, a defense mechanism whereby people attempt to hide their true motivations and emotions by providing reasonable or self-justifying explanations for irrational or unacceptable behavior.

I know there have been many times I have rationalized a situation was the right thing only to find out later that this was far from being the right thing for me.
Each of us has rationalized about something in our life. It may be that you are in love with someone who does not feel the same about you. So you tell yourself that in time this person will change and see you in a whole new way falling deeply in love with you so if you just wait a little longer it will happen. Months down the road you still are rationalizing that it will happen someday. It never does because you have been telling yourself rational-lies instead of moving on and letting go, so that you may find a new love who really does love you.
Another way we tell our self rational-lies is by blaming others for our down falls in life. Like the child who has grown into an adult but still holds onto their childhood anger at one parent or another for something that the parent said or did in the past. It is easy to blame others for out short falls even when we know that we are rationalizing so we do not have to carry our own guilt.
Like the child that was told "you will never amount to anything" you are not good enough. As an adult this person easily blames the parent that told them this every time he or she fails at something that they really want in life. By telling yourself rational- lies it is easy to escape feeling bad about whom you are and have become. This is where it becomes necessary to re-evaluate the rationalization you have been doing thus far in life and make changes that will open new ways of thinking and acting in your life. It is time for all of us to become accountable for who we are. It is up too us to be okay with saying I am wrong or I am sorry. To be responsible for the person that we are we must not rationalize that it is okay to put someone down for something they did when we have done the exact same thing and were okay with your actions. How many times have you seen someone making fun of another person and even joined in? Did you rationalize that maybe the person you were making fun of did not hear you so it was okay. Or that so and so did it, so it was alright for you to do.
Take time this week to be aware of when you are rationalizing or telling yourself rational-lies. Think honestly about how you can make changes in your attitude towards others. We have gotten away from our genuine self and become hardened towards others yet we rationalize that it is okay because we do not know this person personally when actually we are all connected thru the essence of pure love, Gods love. It is my belief that our spirits are always that of pure love. So by staying connected to my spirit I shall know when I am being true to my self and when I am telling my self rational-lies. I will feel that positive feeling of love by being genuine to myself and others. I hope that you will let go of any rational-lies you may have told yourself in favor of being genuine and true to your spirit.

Greetings from Julie

Life is a journey we are all taking some of us will reach our destination before others of us but we will all reach our destination. For some life is a wonderful journey and yet for others there is sadness and loneliness. I believe that our journey should not be about getting there reaching that destination but about what you have learned on the way. I have seen so many people lately that are walking around with a blank look on their face as if they were under some kind of spell. It really saddens me seeing the blank looks on these people's faces. I smile at people when I am out and about running errands and such. Rarely do I see a smile coming back from those I smile at. I know that people are really stressed out and have a million things on their minds but there is always time to smile. It is as if people have forgotten to enjoy the journey that is life. I hope that you will choose to enjoy this journey by showing kindness to other people. Just Smile!

Mercury will retrograde on April 18, 2010 to May 11, 2010

Mercury Retrograde
April 18, 2010 to May 11, 2010

If you have been wondering why things have been a little mixed up lately it may be that the planet Mercury has been slowing down for the last two weeks and as of yesterday, Sunday April 18, 2010 it is now official Mercury Retrograde has began. Don't let this scare you, though it can be a wonderful time of taking care of all those things you have not finished in the last three months. There are many things you can do to get through the retrograde easily like cleaning out the closets and donating what you do not need any more to your favorite charities. You may want to spend time cleaning your automobile inside and out. Now doesn't that sound like fun!
For many years I have studied the effects of mercury retrograde when I first started this study I soon realized the affect that mercury retrograde can have upon people's lives. For instance in each retrograde it seems that three high profile or famous people usually pass on during this time. It also makes me wonder about the Volcano that is happening causing havoc at the airports in Europe. Is this caused by mercury going retrograde? I do not know but I would guess it plays a part in the kind of mix-ups that can happen in a retrograde. So my friends, I ask that you think about signing any important papers or contracts at this time, if at all possible please do not sign until after the 11th of next month. I know some people think this is all hog wash but I know from testing the waters that if you are in a hurry and really need to buy a car or are looking to buy a new home it is not a good time to do this you could get a lemon or worse find out you are not happy with that new home.
Things that are electrical tend to go down in mercury retrogrades this includes: vacuums, dishwashers, hot water heaters, cars, cell phones, Computers, etc….
I have had my share of hard drives lost in retrogrades and boy does it hurt!
Please take a moment to back up that computer today.
Mixed up communications can certainly be caused by mercury retrograde. Something we all need to do is allow a little more time to get to our destinations when we are traveling during this retrograde, as accidents and breakdowns can happen.
Think about how you are communicating with others during this time are you a little short tempered or maybe you just don't have the time to have a friendly conversation with a friend or loved one. Now is the time to take time to be a little kinder and to let your loved ones know that you love them. As always it is better to think positive thoughts about yourself and others remembering that what you put out you will receive. Call upon your Angels to guide you through the next three weeks. Take time to meditate daily as this will help you in finding the answers you need to get through the retrograde with grace and ease. Tickles and Sparkles

May 3, 2010

Who Are You?
How do you see yourself?

Are you seeing yourself the way others see you or do you have your own ideas of who you are?

Do you believe that you are as other people see you or do you have a different view point of who you really are?

These are some really powerful questions because each person on this earth has a differing view point of who they really are. Sometimes it is difficult to know if you are seeing yourself as your pure spiritual self or if you are judging yourself from the memories of other people's views of what kind of person you are.

Families and friends tend to think that they know each other better than they know themselves at times. There have been many people who have tried to tell me who they think I am, yet I know this is only an illusion in their minds of who I am. Sometimes families think that they know what you like and dislike what you want and do not want in your life. Sometimes they are right and at other times they can be way off in their assumption of the kind of person you are.
From birth we are hear other people's thoughts on what kind of a person we will become in the future. Has anyone ever told you how they think you are?
Maybe as a child you were told you were stingy because you did not want to share with the other children. Maybe somewhere in your heart you still believe this and hold it as a truth.
Maybe you have been told that you were not good enough at something yet deep within you believed that you could be good at it if you were given a little time. Or maybe you believed and gave up on a dream you once had because someone else did not think you would succeed.
We all have dreams and aspirations of who we want to be in this life. Sometimes these dreams and aspirations get put on hold as we just try to exist on this planet. We forget who we are because we are busy being who we think we are suppose to be.
I love to Clown around and to make people laugh at one time I thought I could be a comedian. Well that didn't turn out the way I thought it would in fact as I got older I realized that the world is much more serious than I imagined it was. I still try to bring laughter to others because I believe it is good to laugh and have fun. I once mentioned to someone close to me that I would love to be a comedian so I could make people laugh. I was told "You do not look like a comedian" that seemed to stick with me for years. I wondered if there is a certain look you have to have to be a comedian. Well as you know I did not become a comedian and maybe that is a good thing.

What I am trying to get across is that it really does not matter what other people think when it comes to you knowing who you are. You are Gods Perfect Child. You are the only person on this earth who is you there is no other person who has your exact traits and talents. Along the way we forget who we are at times as our lives intertwine with other's lives. Today it is time to remember who you are take a moment to focus on your qualities good and bad.
Make a list of each then go back through your list and look at how many of the qualities may have come from what other people think you are. Ask yourself is this how I view my self or how I feel other's view me.
Next make a list of how you wish to see yourself. For example: I am brilliant, kind and have a positive outlook on life. I am a happy person, a loving person, etc.
Each morning take a look at your list of positive qualities add to it if you like
Then think about them through out your day. Practice being you the genuine you not what someone else may think you are. Now it is time to get in touch with the true you the spiritual being within your body is yearning to help you be better than you imagine.
We do not have to pretend to be someone we are not! Many times we pretend to be someone other that who we really are because we think this will please another. Life is not about pretending it is about being in the present about loving yourself, giving your self permission to be real and genuine each moment.
I hope that you will see within your self the God like qualities that you have and will use these qualities to better your life now and in the future.
Blessings from Julie

May 17, 2010

Greetings Everyone,
May seems to be moving right along here in somewhat sunny CA. Yesterday was beautiful and the day before that just the same but today it is overcast and dreary. I sometimes wonder if it is spring yet or if it is summer with last Saturday being 90 degrees here in Citrus Heights.
Life is kind of like the weather in a sense we never know what it will be like until it is happening. We like the, weather forecasters on television try to predict what will happen next in our life. But until we have the experience we never know how it will turn out.
Most of us are pretty accurate at predicting what will transpire next in our lives. That is because we have already been creating it through our thoughts and feelings. The thing is we also are creating what will happen next through our feelings of doubt and fears. This is why we are always working on keeping our thoughts positive, well most of us are, aren't we? Yes in this world it is very hard to remain positive 24/7 this is because we are so used to rethinking things and looking at the what ifs. Then there are other things that can through you off balance like hearing something bad about someone or something. This is when we instantly go into judgment mode. I heard a story on the television about a family whose father was killed in front of them by a person who had answered their ad on Craig's list for a diamond ring for sale. As I listened to this story I felt sadness for this family. Then as they told their story the fourteen year old son who witnessed his Fathers death said that he forgives the person who did this. My heart swelled and my eyes welled up with tears. I think I was just so amazed that this young man could forgive it made me feel such joy that a person so young could know that kind of forgiveness. Many people would say that they could not forgive an act so cruel. To me this young man is truly on his higher path and knows the power of faith.

I think we should all ask ourselves how strong our faith really is are we following our higher path by allowing love to guide us each day?

Are we choosing our thoughts carefully so that we create wonderful things for ourselves and our families?

If you were asked that for one day 24 hours not to judge anyone or anything would you and could you do this?

If you were told that you could have anything you desired in life by being positive. By having complete faith that love is the most powerful source you have available to bring great changes to your life. Then would let go of judgment would you open your mind to a much higher thought pattern which does not include anything negative?

You can have the life you desire it may take some time but it is possible though keeping your thoughts positive. This takes time because you and only you can re-train your mind to think in such a way. I have found that through the years it is sometimes easier to forget and let go of the positive thoughts because being positive takes work and a really big effort. The truth is I know that it is really hard to keep positive even when your world is falling apart this is when you really have to monitor your thoughts the most. It is also true that you can do this! With practice everything gets easier! Today I ask you to give some thought to what you desire in life and what it is worth to you to have the life you desire. I hope you will start today to make an effort to remain positive even when times are tough. I know we can do it! Love works miracles every day and I believe in miracles.

Winning List
I wonder how many of you buy Lottery Tickets with hopes that you will be the next big winner. I bet that each person who buys that lottery ticket has the same wish of being a winner of a large amount of money. I for sure do! Yes it's true I have those same wishes as you and millions of other people on this earth. Oh yea! I can hear you now "If you're Psychic Julie why don't you just pick the winning numbers" The truth is I really wish I could. Sometimes I wonder why I can see other things but can't seem to see the winning numbers. As I ponder this I understand that everything happens for a reason and that timing is everything so maybe it is just not yet my time. I did however get a message the other day that inspired me to start a list of all that I will do when the time comes for me to win! I will call it the "Winning List". Kind of like a Bucket list but better! We all have dreams of what we could do with a million or so dollars, so why not start a list. I got that if I start a list it will strengthen the connection of energy I am sending out into the universe and with any luck the universe will provide at the exact right time to deliver in one way or another the things on my list. This is not to say I will win the lottery but there may be another way I will get assistance in attaining those things on my list. I hope that if you play the Lottery you too will make a "Winning List". You never know in less you try!

How Do You Stay Positive?
Are there certain things that you do to stay positive each day? Or do you just let whatever happens during your day influence your mood. We all have times that seem to drag us down and suck out our energy but do we have to allow this to keep interrupting our lives. I say heck no!

Start your day with a prayer of gratitude or meditation this will go along way in keeping you on track during the day.

During the day make it your intention to focus your thoughts on only positive things. I didn't say it was easy yet if you are only focusing on the positive in each situation you encounter you will soon start to forget about the negative influences that may try to disrupt your day.

On your way home from work take time to refocus your thoughts and let go of any negative thoughts or feelings that may have popped up during the day. Then think about all the good that happened during your day and take a moment to be thankful for your family and friends and anyone or anything that inspired you this day.

Remember each day to inspire at least one person and to always end the day with gratitude. You will be amazed at how good life can be just by focusing your mind on the good in life. Have a wonderful week!

Take the wisdom that you gain from this conversation and know that the right person is coming in very soon for you or someone close to you.

Sagittarius: Through change comes victory and new popularity arrives for you. If you are a dark haired woman this victory is even more powerful.

Dear Friends I hope this week starts out beautifully for you!

Have you ever felt that you were stuck or that your life seemed to be on hold? I bet you have! I think we all have had this challenge once or twice in our lives.
If you have been feeling stuck there are many ways you can get your life back on track and moving forward towards achieving your goals.

#1 Stop all thoughts that may enter your mind that are telling you that you are stuck. We are what we think!

#2 Start doing things a little differently than you usually do them.
Example: take a different route to work or when you are running errands.

#3 Meditate for 10 to 20 minutes this will keep you balanced and give you time to receive information you need to make positive choices in your life.

#4 Practice Forgiveness each day let go of and anger you may have at another person. Anger or harboring bad feelings towards another can block you and in fact make you down right sick.

#5 Practice Chakra exercises. Opening the Chakras allows energies in the body to become more balanced. Here is a web site that tells about the Chakras http://www.threeheartscompany.com/chakra.html

#6 Make a list of five things that you love about your self, put it on your bathroom mirror to remind you each day how wonderful you are.

#7 Are, you creative or do you have a talent that you do not use often enough? Maybe it is time to get back to playing music, drawing or cooking. Maybe you feel that you are just not the creative type. I have heard this before. Well I say everyone is creative maybe it is time to take a how to class. After doing the Chakra exercises you may realize that you have many untapped talents.

The truth is that it is up to you to get unstuck by taking steps that will move you forward. Believe in yourself the world may be going through tough times but that does not mean that you have to also.
"As we believe so shall it be done" When you believe in change it will happen. Let go of how or where or when it will happen just know that everything is constantly changing. We are wasting valuable time believing that we are stuck for all it takes is a change in mind to bring a change into your life.

Practice being happy this week!

Greetings from Julie
I am a day late in getting this out to you why? I received a gift of a cold from my grandson so I was definitely not up to par yesterday. Today I feel better, better and better!

Two weeks ago when I sent the newsletter out to you I did not put the Answer Deck Birth Sign readings I asked those who would like a personal reading to contact me. This worked all too well I was really busy getting those readings done and sent out. That brings me to today when I figured that I spent the same amount of time doing them all at once. So I will be including them in this newsletter for all of you to read.


Forgiveness
Through out my life there have been many times that I have had to choose to forgive someone rather than holding onto the anger and pain of the incident or situation. I have learned that when we hold onto things it creates internal conflict as well as external conflicts that can make us very ill. For the most part I have done quite well but there have been times when I still held anger at a person and could not seem to let it go. I think that most everyone has had this experience in one way or another. As I have gotten older I have learned that Karma always takes care of the situation. I have no say-so about where and when this may or may not take place. I know that sending out negative thoughts and feelings towards a person is sending the same to back to me. So I really try to remain positive and let go of anger A.S.A.P. knowing that if I hold it I will have to deal with karma of my own making.

A good friend sent this about forgiveness to me not to long ago, I am sending it out to you in hopes that you will find forgiveness for someone in your life.

The definition here of "judgment" is having an opinion about someone or yourself that box you or others in or does not allow movement.

The process you will see is numbered from the bottom and up as it is the densest point. From the physical/objective through the emotional and mental to the spirit based.

It is best to use someone you trust as a sounding board in the process, and you can and it is recommended to use it on forgiving yourself as well as others.

Forgiveness
Some definitions:

Forgiveness is giving up all hope of having a better past.

Forgiveness is being for giving rather than for taking or for holding.

Forgiveness is not holding a judgment.

Forgiveness process:

Step 7: Name what is good about the one you forgive.

Step 6: Send out unconditional love to the one forgiven.

Step 5: Move in consciousness to the spiritual part of you.

Step 4: Give the one you need to forgive responsibility for their actions attitude and behavior.

Step 3: Mental - (Tell about what you preferred).

Step 2: Emotional - (Tell about your feelings).

Step 1: Physical- (Tell about what happened).

Dear Friends
I hope you have a great week filled with positive experiences and lots of love.


What happened to the Golden Rule!
I remember when I was a kid I was always being reminded of the Golden Rule we learned of it through our parents, at our church and at school we were taught
"Do unto others as you would want to have done to you"
I haven't heard of this Rule in so long it seems to be forgotten. The other day I was talking with my Son about how rude people are now days. We talked about why this may be happening and came to the conclusion that since the fall of our economy people have been becoming more and more angry and more rude and selfish. I think we got on this subject because I had just arrived home from a trip to my local discount store where I was given such horrible looks from the people I smiled at as I did my shopping. I felt so disgusted because each person I had given a warm smile to just looked back at me like, why in the hell are you smiling. It made me feel so sad that people don't take time to reciprocate with a smile or even a "hi how you"! As my Son and I talked I realized that we had forgotten the Golden Rule it has been hidden and buried so to speak.
We do not teach our children of the Golden Rule any more we are more interested in what we want and it seems to be that the children are becoming more and more selfish wanting everything that the see on the television. We as parents feel like we have to buy our children's love by giving them what they want so they will love us and not get mad at us. Some children tend to throw fits until they get what they want. Like wise so do many adults. It is not about "what we can do for others anymore" it is more like "what can others do for me". Our country has become a society of selfish people only caring about themselves. We, You and I are the ones who now have to find a way to bring back the Golden Rule to use kindness instead of anger to get ahead in this life. No it is never easy to take the high road in fact it seems to be harder and harder to be nice to someone who is mean and angry. I think we all would love others to treat us with kindness but we have to be the first to give this kindness out to others in order to receive kindness in return. Many people would say yes that sounds great! But I think that I will wait until someone is nice to me before I am nice to them in return. Well if you are waiting for this to happen it may be a long time before you see results. A smile does not cost you anything in fact it has nothing to do with money. A smile or kind words may not cost you anything but the rewards are much greater than anything money can buy. If you have found yourself frowning more than smiling you may want to take a look at what the Golden Rule means to you. I know I enjoy it when I give a smile out and it comes back to me. Yes times may be tough right now but this too shall pass and when it does you forget these hard times, but you may never forget the person who smiled at you and brightened your day when you were feeling down. It is my hope that you will take the time to treat other people the way that you would want to be treated. To open your heart to those who have become selfish and judgmental Smile at them even if it is not returned. You have everything to gain through kindness and nothing to loose. May the Golden Rule be brought back to life through you and I. Thank you, I love you.

July 28, 2010

Dear Friends I hope you will excuse me for getting this out so late in the week. I was helping out a friend who was going through some relationship issues. Believing that there are reasons for everything I figured that there must be a reason my services were needed to help this friend at this time.
It makes me wonder if it had anything to do with the Full Moon we had last Sunday. What ever the reason I am glad I could be a help in this situation.

Reacting Instead of Observing
How many times in your life have you reacted to a situation? instead of sitting back and just observing the situation at hand by listening to what the other person has to say. I think we are all guilty of this at one time or another in our lives. My friend has been living with her boyfriend for about a year now. They have had many ups and downs through the last year. Each time is seems that they both have over reacted to a situation instead of taking the time to think things over and listen to the other person's point of view. Thank goodness she has decided to take her self out of the drama that seems to happen at least once a month in her case.
It seems that we are hearing more and more about couples breaking up. This is because they have chosen to react instead of taking time to reflect upon what is happening, maybe even take a time out to look at the situation in a more settled atmosphere. It is so easy to yell and scream at one another rather than allowing one or the other to communicate in a more positive manner. When a person is yelling and screaming they do not realize the hurt that they are causing the other person nor do they seem to care at that point. The situation then escalates until it may be too late to save the relationship. All that the person wants is to be heard! They do not care what the other person's thoughts or feelings are at that point. Sometimes this person will believe that they are totally right and that their way is the only way of doing things. If you are in this kind of a relationship you may want to re-think why you are still in it.
Through out my years in coaching and doing readings I have talked to many people who have been in relationships that are doing more harm than good in their lives. Sometimes the problems in the relationship are caused by an outside force like too much alcohol and or drug consumption. Sometimes one or the other person in the relationship takes on the role of the leader of the pack and wants to have control over the other person. When this happens the other person is forced in a sense, to let go of a piece of them selves in order to keep the peace in a relationship. I saw my friend go from a self confident positive person to a less than confident person who felt she had lost a part of her true spirit. In fact I have seen this happen in many relationships where one person decides that they are the alpha!
To all of you whom have had this experience you know exactly what I am talking about. To those of you who have had only positive relationships I say wonderful! Keep up the good work.
Relationships have to have good positive communication in order to survive. You and your partner need to create confidence with each other. If you react instead of allowing the other person to voice what is on their mind you are creating a wedge that will eventually split this relationship in two. Understanding and forgiveness are also a part of what relationships are all about. Respect is also a big part of the relationship if you do not respect your partner you do not have a relationship. I have seen couples who bicker and argue constantly it always leaves me wondering why they stay in a relationship that causes such torment. If you are in a relationship that is filled with too much stress and anger for each other it might be time to re-evaluate the relationship or get some couples counseling if you want it to last and grow. I know a couple who has tormented each other for the last ten years now and it has escalated to the point that I am afraid for them and their children. I can only observe their situation without interfering because I believe that I am here to advise if I am called upon to do so. I realize that this is their lesson in life not mine or anyone else's. All I can do is pray that this lesson will soon be learned and that they will find happiness in one way or another.
Yes it can be hard to get your relationship back on track if you are the other person is in a state of reacting. It takes both of you to make a whole in a relationship. Then it is the responsibility of both persons to give a hundred percent to the relationship for it to work. If one or the other is not ready to do this you may want to look at other options, like letting go and moving on.

Reacting does not just apply in relationships it happens in many situations. Many people are so consumed with their own selves that they choose to react instead of observe. Like the guy who flips you off when you cut them off on the freeway because you did not see them. I find that many people are choosing to react rather that take time to open their hearts and minds to the possibility of what the other person might be feeling at the time.
We are now being tested in this time it is hard not to witness the negative forces at work within our own communities. I hope that each of you will choose the higher pathway look beyond your own wants and needs to see another person's point of view then make a decision whether you want react to any given situation that may be happening in your life at the time.
Have a wonderful Day Tickles and Sparkles from Julie

Mercury Retrograde Begins August 20, 2010
Ends on September 12, 2010
Okay so here we are again at the beginning of a Mercury Retrograde, it doesn't officially begin until August 20th but many people have started to feel its affects on their lives as much as two weeks ago. Why does this happen? Well it is like the planet Mercury is slowing down getting ready of its journey back wards in a sense until early September when it will slowly start moving forward once again. If ever there was a time to re-evaluate your life it would be while Mercury is in retrograde. It may be time to review the past decisions that you have made and revise your attitude towards your self and others. Realign your thoughts and remind yourself that you do have a higher purpose. Reconnect to your higher-self and renew your sense of purpose in this life. By using this time to your advantage you can reconnect to your spiritual self in a way that is surprisingly simple just by allowing negative thoughts and feelings to flow away from you like a wave leaving the shore. Take time during this period to recharge your self by getting back to meditation at least once a day for a short time even if it is only ten minutes. Recommit to goals you believe are worth your time and effort.
Remember that a Mercury Retrograde does not have to be a bad thing it can be used to finish up those projects that were started and not finished in the last retrograde. That brings to my mind a couple of interesting things that were taking place at the beginning of the last retrograde. A good person I know who is in construction was just starting a new project when the last Mercury Retrograde began when the retrograde was over the project slowed to a stop even though it was unfinished. It was quite amusing to hear that the project is slated to begin again next week after the beginning of the Mercury Retrograde. Maybe this time it will be finished up without hesitation. Another interesting situation is that a family member had listed their home for sale at the beginning of the last Mercury Retrograde they had a promising offer that fell through at the last moment, now once again they have a new offer and are closing at the end of the week. I keep thinking that they had listed at the beginning of the last retrograde and once again it is the beginning of a retrograde. Does this make you wonder what you were doing around April 17, 2010 to May 11, 2010. Take a look back at this time frame and see if there is something you will be finishing up in the next Three to four weeks.
Remember that when Mercury is retrograde it probably is not the best time to buy a new car or computer for that matter anything that is electrical should be put off being purchased until after September 12th 2010. It is also not the time to make appointments that are set in stone "so to speak" chances are that there will be a major complication and appointments will be changed or forgotten. Missed communications and mix-ups are likely to take place so plan ahead, maybe make a plan B just in case. Believe me when I tell you that signing a contract or accepting that wonderful new job in a Mercury Retrograde is a bad idea you may end up with a disaster that you will not be happy with later down the road. If you happen to be a Virgo this retrograde can teach you a bit about tolerance as Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo this time. You may want to let go of analyzing everything and relax for the next three weeks when Mercury goes direct you will be more able to see the full picture of practically and take care of the details. Don't let others press you for decisions at this time instead let them know you need a little more time to make your own decision.
Things will all work out for you even if there are some mishaps along the way. I still believe that there are reasons for everything even Mercury Retrogrades! I will be cleaning out my closet and clearing the clutter so when Mercury is direct I can use its energies towards fulfilling those goals I set forth in the Retrograde. Have a wonderful day and remember it is up to you to be happy! No person, place or thing can make you happy it is your choice to choose to be happy.

Greetings I hope you are having a wonderful week as I am sending out Tickles and Sparkles to all. Have you ever wondered why every day is not a really great day? Me too! I have even come up with some ways to make those not so wonderful days better.
#1 When I am feeling a bit down or thinking too much on something I find it is good to change my train of thought. It works really well if you focus on a totally different subject.
#2 do something different eat lunch in a different place or take a different route to work or when doing chores.
#3 Go for a walk and smell the
Roses in my neighbor hood there are many homes with nice rose bushes planted near the sidewalks.
#4 Exercise even just a little.
#5 Pray, give thanks, Listen to your Angels.

Spiritual Psychic Readings
By Julie Humphrey

I have to say I love my job I really enjoy being able to help someone with their challenges in this life by connecting with their spirit guides and angels to give them information that will help them in some way. I am truly grateful for the gift I have and that I am able to use it to bring a new sense of balance to someone whose life may be challenging at the time. When I lay the cards out they seem to tell me what I need to relay to the person I am reading for. It sometimes comes as a little voice and sometimes I receive pictures in my mind that help me to give correct information to the person. People ask how I do readings over the phone I tell them that I am able to connect on a higher level to their higher self this is where energy comes in. Energy moves freely as soon as we release it so I am able to connect to the person's energy and be able to connect to their guides and angels to get a clear picture of what they need to receive in their reading. Some people seem to be afraid of knowing what the future holds for them. I understand their concern and I am sure that the Angels do also understand. I ask for Divine guidance in what I give to my clients so that I am able to help them in a way that is positive and full of optimism. Each morning I do a reading for my self in my readings I am given guidance as to what may take place that day and for the next few weeks. It still amazed me when I am doing a reading for my self and am told that I will receive a phone call very soon from a friend of relative and not ten minutes later the phone rings. I also receive information I am able to pass on to others like my family and friends this is usually information that can help them in some way. I find being informed of what may happen is positive and has helped me many times in many ways. I hope that you will try a reading if you haven't ever had one or if you just haven't had one in a while. I kind of look at it this way we all have universal knowledge at our disposal and I am just a conduit for this information. Okay so here is the Surprise I have been waiting to tell you about. September is my birthday month and I would like to give you all a chance to have a reading with me this month for the discounted price of only $30.00 for a 30 minute reading.

FEARS and Phobias
For about a week now I have been wondering what I could possibly write about in this week's Newsletter. On Sunday while at Sam's Club I got it! The answer was right there in front of me at the check out stand. As we unloaded our cart onto the belt that moves everything to the cashier I caught a glimpse of the cashier as she looked at the jar of Garlic Stuffed Olives that we had put on the belt. It was if she had seen a ghost! She got all pale at the sight of the olives sitting there. When we got up to the check out stand she asked if we would please pick up the Olives and run them over her scanner for her. She really looked genuinely frightened and said she usually has someone else helping her and that they scan them for her. I looked at her and asked why do you have someone else scan the Olives for you? She then told us that she had a bad childhood experience and was deathly afraid of (You Guessed It) Olives! At first I really wanted to laugh but there was a small voice in my mind that said to me "we all have fears and no matter how big or small to each of us these fears are real." I smiled at her and thanked her for ringing us up.
Each of us has a fear of something it may be something so small or so ridicules that we usually do not tell any one about our fear. We just live with it. Some people are afraid of spiders and others are afraid of snakes, me too! Did you know that some people are afraid of balloons? Yup it is true and there is a name for this fear Globophobia. Okay the reason I know this is because my daughter in law has this fear. I have a cupboard that I keep the Grandchildren's toys in for when they come to play. I learned of my daughter-in-law's phobia when the kids found the bag of balloons I had put in the toy cupboard. I am sure there are many things that people have genuine fears about and that truly make them uneasy in telling some other person about their fears. To each of you that may have a phobia of something I have to say I understand and will not tease you but I may smile.
I am sure I must have a phobia of some sort I am just not sure what. This does not mean I am fearless in fact it just came to mind that I must have a phobia of Bridges I have to admit I am freaked out every time I have to drive across a Bridge. My heart starts beating faster and faster as I approach a bridge while driving. My husband has laughed at me for years about this fear as I tensed up and said prayers as we crossed the bridge. If you have fears about something or many things I believe that there must be a reason for this. Maybe it had to do with a past life or something that has happened in this life. What ever it is I believe that our fears are there for a reason. It is okay to have these kinds of fears for they teach us something about our selves if we take the time to figure out where they may have come from.

There are other kinds of fear that also freak us out, but these fears are about the future and they can hold us back from achieving our dreams if we let them. The fear of (What Might Happen If) is a real fear yet this kind of fear is only changed when the future happened and the fear was not realized. This seems to happen quite often and allows us to let go of this fear and move on to the next one. Sometimes we have fears that manifest very rapidly these fears may be manifesting because of our thoughts and dwelling upon the worst that can happen instead of focusing on the positive manifestations we would love to have happen. Remember that your thoughts are energy and when you send out this energy of thought into the Universe it reacts and sends us that situation we have feared about. Okay so what about all those people who claim to be positive and are sending out positive thoughts only to receive a slow manifestation of what you have asked for in a positive manner or a somewhat negative manner. Believe me when I say that one tiny bit of fear can bring down a mountain of positive thoughts.
I know that there have been times I felt I had been so positive and believed that only the best could happen and nothing came of it. Kind of like buying the lottery ticket and believing it is the lucky one only to find out your numbers were off by one on each number. The lesson here is that EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON! We may not understand the reason at the time, but we will understand in time the reason and why it happened or not.
I hope you will take a look at your fears and decide for yourself if you are willing to let them go or change the way you feel about them. I also hope that if you know someone who has a fear that you may feel is not warranted that you will not look down upon them or tease them. Send them lots of love including Tickles and Sparkles so that they may let go of these fears and become fearless in the face of fear.

September 27, 2010

Greetings, I hope your Monday is starting off beautifully and that your week will be one of the best ever. Remember that what you think you create so be diligent in creating each day to be the best.

CHANGE IS CONSTANT
Change is the process of becoming different it is a constant in each of our lives in fact it is a constant in everything. Imagine if nothing ever changed it just stayed the same year after year! Hum, I guess we would not be here today if this were true. Thank goodness for change! For with out it we would cease to exist.
Everything must change and evolve into something different. I know most of us don't really look forward growing older and seeing the lines and wrinkles that become a part of us as change takes over our bodies. Although it is a cycle of life and everything and everyone goes through change. Sometimes the changes that we experience in our lives are wonderful and bring in great blessings into our lives, like conceiving a child or when a grandchild is born these changes we welcome into our lives even though we are aware of the changes that now are happening to our bodies because we are getting older.
There are times I have heard people say "Oh nothing ever changes in my life." Yet change is happening constantly, it may be that since the changes that are taking place at a slower pace maybe they are going unnoticed.
Sometimes we do not want change to come, yet before we know it change has happened and our life is a little different that the day before. Sometimes there are big changes that occur in our lives that can be really good or bad it is all how you receive the change within your own mind. Sometimes we ask for changes to come in fact there are times we pray and beg for the changes to happen to bring something better into our lives. Maybe you have been wishing for a change to come into your life but have not taken the time to be part of the creation of the change that you desire. It is important that we visualize the changes that we desire to take place in our lives so that the Universe will see exactly what we are asking for and deliver it to us. Sometimes we ask for change and it comes in a way that we had feared it would. Why? It may be because that is what you may have put out into the Universe through your fears and thoughts therefore your thoughts are energy on every level. Accept those changes that come to you even the ones you are not to happy about they are helping you to change the way you look at life. I have found that there are many times through out our lives that we change without even noticing it. I remember one of the biggest changes in my life came around the age of twenty five it was as if my mind opened to new ideas and possibilities. There are many points of time in our lives that we change in ways we never would have imagined we would. I guess change is how you perceive it and how you choose to deal with the changes that affect your life each day. It is never too late to make changes in your life and if you don't mind taking a little time to create those changes by using the energy of thought and being certain within your own mind of the changes you desire, so they will manifest for you more rapidly.

How you think about yourself is one way that change takes place without your even noticing it is happening. Focus your thoughts on seeing your body as healthy and in perfect shape. I write each day "my body is trim, slim and beautiful I look as if I exercise each day I am in perfect health." Okay so I do not exercise each day but I usually end up doing work that helps me to get this exercise one way or another. By believing that you have the ability to make changes in your life you are assisting the Universal energy of change and will receive that which you believe. Imagine being a part of the changes that you desire to take place in this world and all you have to do is send out positive thoughts as you go through your daily routine. It is possible for you and everyone to bring great changes to this planet just by thinking positively thus sending out this positive thought energy into the Universe.
At this time there are many changes that are taking place on our planet it is up to us not to give in to the pessimists who say our world is coming to an end. Believe that there is still time for positive changes to take place in our world see in your mind the economy changing for the better and believe that we are able to save our planet from global warming by making the changes that are necessary. It is up to you and me to become a positive part of the changes that are happening now and in the future. I hope that I have changed your day and given you renewed hope for the changes that you wish for today and each day in the future.
Change your Thoughts and you can change your life and maybe the lives of many. Stay Positive and do not allow the negative thoughts to overpower all the Positive changes that are now being created.
Have a Great week my friends

Dear Friends
I apologize for being late this week in getting this newsletter out to you. I have found that when delays happen there must be a reason for them. Talking of delays I have a garage door that sometimes will not shut this seems to happen when I am in a big hurry and have to be somewhere at a certain time. I have learned not to get upset but rather relax as I mess with it and try to get it to close. I have also learned to be thankful for this when it happens, because just maybe it is saving me from a situation that can be avoided like an accident or something that would have put me in harms way.
I have also been wondering what I would write about this week and now I realize that it must have to do with remaining calm when in a rush or hurry to get somewhere or to get something done.

"Patience"
Is it a Virtue?
I believe that patience is truly a virtue that we all need in our lives. When I was quite a bit younger (in my twenties) I believed that things should happen quickly and in my time frame. Now that I have aged I find that I have much more patience than in my youth. I have learned that getting all bent out of shape over things that do not happen when I want them too only serves to zap my energy even more. I have learned that Universal time is way different than I imagined and that every thing happens in perfect timing.
I have also learned that if I let go of worrying about the timing of things it seems to get done or accomplished much faster than if I had tried to manipulate the situation by hurrying it along. There are countless times in my life where I have been delayed and found out later that there was a reason and that my life is much better because of the delay I experienced.
Next time you are delayed for one reason or another do not get mad be glad for you may have an Angel that is protecting you from some kind of danger.
By being patient we are given a chance to bring balance to our body and mind in order to get where we are going in this life.
There are many people who seem to have no patience for others. I have experienced this many times while driving it seems that they are in such a big hurry to get to that same red light you will soon arrive at and have to wait for it to change. Then they take off speeding up the next red light. I have to chuckle when I see this happening, because I know if they would slow just a little the light would turn green before they get to it. When we are patient it seems that life has a way of smoothing out the ruff spots while you are waiting. Yes friends next time you are in a rush take a moment to ask your Angels to give you the patience to get you there safely.
There are many ways you can be more patient and many situations in our lives call for patience in order to get what we desire in life. Think about the ways you can invite patience into your life. Maybe you need to have patience when dealing with others or your family or friends. By giving them your patience in whatever situation that arises you will be helping not only them but your self too. Wishing you a wonderful week filled with patience and understanding. What a wonderful virtue to have!

I want to thank you for reading this newsletter and taking time to email me with your kind thoughts and remarks. I send you Love and light for without you there would be no need for a newsletter. I am grateful for you in my life.
Blessings from Julie

Happy Halloween
As most of you know Halloween is my favorite Holiday I love the wonderful costumes people come up with they are fantastic. I hope you have a great costume in mind as I would love to see your pictures and if yours is chosen as the best costume picture you will receive a free 30 minute reading from Julie. I will post the pictures and the Winner in the next Newsletter.

Spirit Not Ghost!
Most Spirits I have communicated with prefer not to be called a Ghost. I can understand why they would rather not be called a Ghost for Ghosts are scary and for the most part Spirit does not want to scare you they only want to communicate with you. Although there have been times many times I have been scared or mildly shook up by a spirit or two.
When I am communicating with a Spirit who is here to share information with their loved one there is a sense of peace. Tears usually come to my eyes if there is a lot of emotion connected with the Spirit I am communicating with. Some Spirits can be a lot like they were in life and can be quite amusing at times. I feel that there are many spirits around us at all times.
There are many things we do not see but we can feel or hear, I have found that some Spirits will knock, tap or make noises to get our attention. I always tell people to talk to their departed loved ones they do and will hear you.
Above all try not to be afraid of the spirits who may try to get your attention remember that you are human and having a physical body allows you to be stronger than you think.
Okay so what about the Spirits that are negative and try to cause harm these are usually spirits that haven't crossed to the light for one reason or another. Maybe they died a horrible death and do not realize that they are even dead. There are many reasons that they may have chosen to stay behind. If you are having problems with Spirits in your home or office Please give me a call at 916-726-4892 I will be happy to help you in leading them to the light.


Have you ever felt as if there was something blocking you from the success that you desire in your life, well today I thought that it would be appropriate to offer a Spell to unblock the energy.
Unblocking Spell
Bring a piece of bread and some coins to a crossroads.
Request that the general assembly of spirits remove obstacles to your path and grant you good fortune and smooth traveling instead.
Leave the offering and depart without looking back.
Good luck!

Have a wonderful week! Remember less energy to be happy than it does to be unhappy.
I choose happiness do you?

Greetings from Julie
The fall colors are so beautiful right now here in CA as I walk my dog George each morning I am in awe of how beautiful the trees look with all their fall brilliance and colors. As we walk I am so grateful to be a part of this wonderful world and for my life here on this earth. I hope you are able to enjoy the beautiful colors of nature as you go about your day.
Sometimes we forget to look at the beauty of nature, our lives are filled with to do lists and taking care of business that we do not notice what is happening all around us. I hope you will take time to go on a nature walk this week even if it is just around the block. Breathe the fresh air in and be in gratitude for all of the beautiful surroundings that we have upon this earth.


To Struggle or Not to Struggle that is the Question

When I was about 5 years old I was sitting at the dining room table at my Grandparents house having dinner. I remember trying to cut the meat on my plate with a butter knife it was so hard to get though the piece of meat I must of looked quite frustrated as the food kept sliding around my plate. My Grandfather noticed what a hard time I was having and suggested that I not put so much pressure on the knife trying to cut through the meat, he said to saw gently through it. As I lightened my grip on the knife it slid through the meat with ease. I was amazed that it was so easy to do this by not trying so hard I had achieved being able to use a knife on my own. Now this does not sound like a great achievement but when you are 5 it is a pretty big deal.

The reason I told you this little story is that we all have things in our lives that we can not seem to get though we try our hardest to get it right but the harder we push the harder it seems to be. This may be a goal that we try to reach or something else, yet it seems to always be out of reach forcing us to try even harder.
Maybe it is not as hard as we think to attain our goals and just maybe if we let go of forcing things it will happen almost naturally for us. Sometimes when we are pushing to get things done like having a deadline and not knowing how to reach it in time, because when we are in a hurry to get things done is when it seems to take forever. I know that if you are a man and have ever worked on your car that there may have been a time or two when you were totally frustrated because something just did not seem to work right and you may have said some words you wouldn't want anyone else to hear you saying. If you had just taken a moment to walk away from the project you were working on and breathe some deep breaths you could get back to the project and have a new perspective making it possible to figure out what you need to do to make it work for you. Life is like this when we force something it may not work out right for us making us struggle. By letting go and taking a moment to release the stress we are able to have success easily and then if it does not work out remember there must be a reason because there is a reason for everything that happens in life. I have had times where I had tried to force something to work for me and then discovered I had the wrong part. I think each person I know has also had this challenge at one time or another.
The moral of this story is that when things get tough it must be time to take a break from what ever is happening and relax for a few minutes so you can rebalance your self and try again.
When we apply this to what ever is causing us stress we are able to then let go of the stress so we can focus our thoughts and find the answers we are looking for. Blessings to each of you my friends may you have a stress free week filled with joy and goodness.

November 29, 2010

Greetings my Friends, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
This month has flown by so quickly I can not believe we are almost to December. I have been busy trying to get my Christmas list checked off so I can relax in December and just enjoy the Holidays. I think after reading this newsletter you will most likely want to get your holiday shopping finished up ASAP.
Mercury will be Retrograde from December 10, 2010 until December 30, 2010.
Some of you reading this may already know that when Mercury retrogrades it can be a very trying time for everyone.
When the planet Mercury retrogrades it seems to slow down and move in the opposite direction. Mercury rules communication, thus when Mercury is retrograde communications seem to break down. So if your find yourself missing an important appointment or getting stuck in traffic you can blame it on the retrograde. Mercury is at fault for many mishaps that happen while it is retrograde. Some examples are: Cell Phones, Computers, Cars, Transportation of any sorts can break down. Well just about anything electrical can break down. There may be accidents during this time so watch where you are going and "Stay in the moment" this is critical!
I really do not like giving you this news during the Holidays, yet I believe that it is important to help people understand the relevance and importance of knowing about Mercury retrograde. Try to buy those gadgets you are giving for gifts this year before the 5th of December. Then pray that they do not fail or have to be returned. It may also be time to remember it is best to avoid judgment this means: "If you do not have something nice to say do not say it or think it." Arguments can pop up out of nowhere. Usually Mercury starts retrograding about two weeks before when it is suppose to start. That is why I did my shopping early but, I still have a few things to buy that are easily returnable. It is the Season to be merry and bright, sweet and polite! If you have any questions concerning the retrograde you can email me and I will be happy to answer your questions.

December 15, 2010

May this Holiday Season fill your heart with joy love and happiness I say this because I think that if there are more people expressing positive feelings and gestures towards others there may just be a miracle this year.
We create miracles in our own lives through out the year never noticing them or even believing that they have been created by us through our thoughts and feelings. By staying positive you will attract positive things and experiences into your life as if by magic.
We tend to believe in a kind of magic at this time of year allowing those miracles to manifest in wonderful ways. I wish you all a wonderful miracle this Holiday Season.

As most of you know Mercury is retrograde all month until Dec 30th 2010
I have to say I have been hearing many stories of things happening in the retrograde already. There have been breakdowns and re-Do's happening in the lives of many people. My sister who is a truck driver and owns her own business said it started about a week ago when her Truck wouldn't start it had dead batteries. She bought new batteries, that worked for awhile but then she lost engine power. Soon she had the fuel hoses replaced thinking it might be that which was causing the problem with the truck. Well that didn't work either. Feeling frustrated she kept trying to figure out what the problem could be with the help of her mechanic she finally got it fixed! The problem was a sensor on the computer. Go figure! "Note: I am not quite sure if I got this in order but you get the point". When Mercury retrogrades it sure can cause mix-ups and mess-ups.
Take care and use caution for the next couple weeks if driving in traffic the roads seem to be crowded with Christmas shoppers trying to finish that last bit of shopping. I have noticed many people are so rushed that they are not paying attention when driving. I have also noticed that many people are a little grouchy, smile and say I love you to them in your mind this will help both of you. At family gatherings this year try to be on your best behavior as you know Mercury can cause some arguments and disagreements. Have a wonderful holiday.

Wise words from my Daughter
The other day my daughter told me that even if she was very angry at someone she would just let the anger go and wish them well. I asked her why and she said that if she sends out anger it would cause bad karma not only for the person she sent it too, but this karma would also come back to her and she did not want to cause herself this kind of karma. I think we all need to be reminded that what we send out we get back in return.

Greetings from Julie
Now I know what my Mother meant when she told me as you grow older time seems to go faster. This year seemed to fly by so I must be pretty old. I just wonder how fast the next year will pass. There are so many things I wanted to do by the end of this year and still they are not finished so I will add them to my new list of "To Do's" and see if by the end of next year I will have got them done. I used to fret about getting everything done and crossed off my list of things to do. Now as I have gotten older I realize that I will never get everything I should to done but if they are on my list I will give it my best effort. It is kind of nice this ageing thing, I have learned not to beat myself up for not being able to accomplish everything today. I may have my day all planned out but if a good friend calls or one of my children needs to talk or have a sounding board I am always here for them. I have learned that people count! There will always be time for getting things crossed off my list. I am not saying forget that you have a list just move what you have to do to the next day. Sometimes we forget that people count and that our family and friends sometimes just need someone to listen to them without judgment. Well I guess I needed to get that out to you today. I know that over the Holidays family and friends come for a visit and things may get a little hectic at times. Before you send them off this season let them know that you are there for them if they ever need someone to talk too. Just by letting each person know that you are here for them it will open new doors of communication for you and for them. There are many people whom do not have family or friends to talk too especially in the holiday season it can be very emotionally hard for them.
In this New Year we are soon approaching we all need to ask ourselves "How can I be a better person in the coming year" and "What can I do in my life that will benefit more than one person" Make a list of the things that you want to do in the coming year that will answer the above questions. Have a very Happy New Year!

Mercury will be turning Direct on December 30th 2010
Thank Goodness!
There have been many people telling me of all that has been happening for them in the retrograde! I am truly amazed at how the retrograde still seems to mess things up at times even when you know all about them. I guess I will just laugh and say next time I will be more prepared! Ha! Ha!

The New Moon will arrive on Tuesday January 4th 2011 at 4:03 am EST
Write down 10 wishes on this day!

#3- Let go of the past and vow to become the warm loving person you really are.

#4- Forgive yourself and others for all the unkind feelings or words that have been said and focus on noticing when you are not coming from a higher loving place in your heart and mind. That is when you can change any feelings that don't feel right within you, replace them with positive thoughts and feelings.

#5- Burn a Bayberry candle on the first day of each month for good luck.
Note this Spell does work! You will be amazed and it is loads of fun!
Spell to bring in Good Luck all through the Year!
What ever you magically desire you can create!

At 12:01 AM New Years Day is the best time to do this one.
If you can not do it at this time, do it on new years Day at 11:00 AM

What you will need is:
A large bowl
3-Red Apples cut up into small chunks
1-cup of white rice
1-teaspoon of Cloves powder
