#130 - Staying on Track by Staying Positive with Tickles and Sparkles

January 10, 2011

If you are like most people I am sure that somewhere in your mind you have wondered if 2012 will be "THE END".
As for myself yes I too have wondered what will happen in 2012. We all can speculate on whether or not it will truly be the end of this world. I would like to believe that there will be a transformation that takes place bringing us to a higher level of understanding what we are here for and how we should continue to live our lives in a more loving and positive way. I think we all would like this outcome rather than believe that it will truly be the end.
There are many unusual things that been happening around our world that have lead many to believe that we are on the path of destruction. For instance the Red Winged Black Birds that fell from the sky on January 3rd in Arkansas and the flooding in Australia. Why are these things happening? I really do not know the answer to that, all I can do is wonder if these are signs for us to make a conscious effort to change our ways. When I first heard on the News about the black birds falling from the sky I immediately thought to my self this has to do with a UFO. Oh yea that is what I said! I got a message along with that thought it was "they are sending this messages if we can do this to birds then would you think we could do the same to you." I know that sounds quite crazy, gosh I will admit I have even wondered about that message being a little out there. I do believe however that we are not alone in this universe and that there are others here from other solar systems. On September 12, 2010 at about 12:30 pm I was sitting in my car in the left hand turn lane at Hazel and Madison Ave. I pulled up to the light and stopped looking up at the light then what I saw amazed me it was a very large triangle shape the color of which I would say was a dark grey or black and I could see the whole bottom which had some kind of etching on it. Thinking that is was a B2 Spirit or something from the air show that was happening in a near by city. It just hovered there without any sound and it was close enough that you would think it would be making some kind of sound. When the light finally turned green I was thinking wow I wonder why that thing is still just sitting there and why other people didn't seem to notice it. I made my turn and looked back and it was gone without a sound.
The rest of the day went by and I didn't give it another thought until later that night as I lay in bed with my eyes closed I saw it again in my mind very clearly. I told my husband about it and went to sleep. The next morning I drew a picture of what I saw and my husband sail it must have been a B2 Spirit maybe from the air show. I agreed and decided to check out these strange planes. I did find out that they do not hover and that they do make a great amount of noise. To this day I think about this strange object and wonder if I will see it again. I hope so.

All of this has got me thinking about the "what ifs" in life.
It made me wonder if maybe we should be thinking about our lives in a more positive way maybe we should really open our hearts up this year to love and to giving love to others. Why wait until the last minute to become that loving person that you were always meant to be. Maybe you are already satisfied with the person that you are if so that is wonderful. I know that it takes a whole lot of practice to be perfect and I haven't gotten there yet! How about you? Today this newsletter is about making the time for those you love and care about. It is about making 2011 a year of change and of love. Decide today to really think about what you say to others and how you can be more compassionate and loving in the months to come. Notice when you are coming from judgment, ego or love. You are the only one who can choose how you want to live your life, you can ignore what is happening in this world and Universe or you can acknowledge it and work on making it a better place. Don't be afraid to say I LOVE YOU to others and mean it. Believe in the power of love believe that you can be a part of change, by becoming more loving and compassionate towards all people even the ones you do not like or disagree with. Friends this is the year to take back your fear of what may happen in the future and to create a future that even God would be proud of. That said what are you going to do to change your life this year for the better of all? Email me Julie@ticklesandsparkles.com with your thoughts on how we can be more loving to all people we come in contact with this year.

Thank you for taking the time to read this Newsletter I do appreciate and love each of you dearly. I am thankful for the support you have given and for the wonderful emails I receive from you. Have a great week!

Greetings from Julie
May this be the best day of your life ever better the best week of your life!
I love to feel positive and happy about life and look forward to seeing what I have created in the past manifesting now. It is because I know I have already put out positive energy into the universe and I know that what comes back will be perfect for me at the perfect time in a wonderful way that will inspire me or teach me something that I will benefit from. As this manifests for me it also manifests for you that which you have put out into the universe, through your words and thoughts. You may or may remember the old phrase
"Those words will come back to bite you on the A**" I do and I know that words can come back to bite you on the A**. In the past I learned that if I say the word "Want" it seemed to block me from what I really desired. I soon started using the word "Desire" instead of the word "Want" and everything went great and I received most of what I desire. Some people objected to my using the word "Desire" instead of want. Eventually I stopped using "Desire" and went back to using the word "Want". You know what? I started feeling blocked from my desires and I even found myself wondering why this was happening. I have realized that the word "Want" is associated with "Lack and Fear" as that old saying goes "We always want what we can't have. Now if you say the word "Desire" to your self it feels good as in "Attaining Your Hearts Desire" I think I have a new Mantra!
I always attain my hearts desires. It is really amazing what words can do for you as thoughts also bring in things so do words. Think of the many ways you can change the way you word things to put out a much more positive message to the universe and to the people you speak them too.
Hum! It could really change your way of life and how you bring in that which you truly desire. There may still be people who will laugh at the way I use my words but I do not think that I would have written this newsletter with out some guidance in what to write about for I had a topic all ready to write about. Today is the Day I kick "Want" out of my vocabulary! For good! Today I hope you will kick "Want" out of your vocabulary also.
Knowing that want we are thinking of and speaking of is creating something is one of the keys to creating a more positive future. Yes being positive at all times seems to be tough I know I have fallen short of attaining this goal so far. But is doesn't mean that I will give up on my self now or in the future. I am committed to creating a better me and a better future through my thoughts and words.

Thank you for your time in reading this today I really do believe it is time to get back to what I really desire in this life. I hope you will challenge yourselves to use positive phrases and words as you speak with other people. I hope that you will let go of any negative thoughts and feelings about others that you may have so that you too can create a more positive life for your self and other people.

Happy Valentines Day February 14, 2011 is one week away!
I have been seeing all kinds of Valentines Day stuff in the stores since the day after Christmas! It makes me wonder if we haven't become a society of material beings. Marketing strategies have figured out how to make a buck on just about every holiday there is. What happened to sitting down with some brightly colored paper and making a valentine for your Sweetheart? I wonder how many of you would be willing to make your valentines this Year?
I hope all of you will at least consider this Valentines Day to get creative and at least make one Valentine for your Sweetheart.
The Reason I ask you to do this is so that you can get creative and bring some meaning back into this holiday. Sure you can find some pretty nice cards in the stores for five to six dollars. Then you have the card that say's all the right words and works for your situation in love. You could spend up to 30 minutes just looking for cards if you are picky like me. Yes it may sound a little funky to make a Valentines Day card. Maybe you haven't made a Valentines Day card since you were in grade school. Guy's you can do this too! It would mean more than you can imagine to that Special Lady in your life to have a Valentine made just for her, by you. Also this is something that can be done as a family project and it is not too late to get started. You will need some colored paper, glue Stick, colored pens and scissors. You can find a picture of a heart on the computer, print and cut it out then glue it to your card.
Then write what's in your heart inside the card, maybe write a poem or just say "I love you". Make this holiday to remember make it about love. I am sure your card will be greatly appreciated by the one you love.
What if you don't have a special love to share Valentines Day with, you may like to make your self a special Valentine just to remind you that you are special and that when you are ready to meet that special person you will. You can also write down 27 things you would like in that special person. The put it under your pillow and each night before going to bed read your list then sleep on it. If there is something you would like to change it is okay to add to or delete from your list.
Another thing you can do is get a new mattress, no I do not sell mattresses but I do know that mattresses hold energy and if it has been awhile since you had a romance maybe it is time to make some changes.

Astrology Are Birth Signs Really Changing?
Okay I don't know why all of the sudden we are not who we thought we were. I for one am a non believer of this one! I really like my birth sign and I think it describes me very well. When I first read about this I just couldn't help but think it was not right. I thought to my self how come when we are suppose to be born under certain planets and now we find ourselves wondering if we are a Capricorn, Sagittarius or Aquarius. Well I will leave it up to you to believe or not and I will stick to being a Virgo it fits me just fine.

Trusting and Believing
Within each of there is a pure and loving spirit, you may have witnessed this part of you without even realizing it. Our Spirit is linked to our emotions as is our Ego also linked to our Spirit. The difference is that our Spirit is only that of love there is no negative or filters that would disguise our Spirit. Ego can go in many different directions to get our emotional attention. A good way to relate to how spirit works is to think back to the last time you watched a movie that made you cry with joy as you watched the scene. Your heart filling with joy at the love and goodness the scene projected out. Maybe it touched your soul in a way that made you feel so good you could watch the movie again and again.
This is your Spirit that allows you to feel such love and warm response.
Maybe you have listened when you Spirit has spoken to you at one time or another. Then again maybe you ignored that little voice inside telling you to believe or allow something into your life that would make it better. If you have ignored this little voice in favor of listening to the old programming of the ego telling you that it is impossible to believe anything would make your life better.
Sometimes we mistake the Spirit for Ego and begin to believe in the Ego's way of getting our attention by of negative thoughts and feelings. It is quite simple to figure out when our Spirit is connected with us spiritually, emotionally and physically is giving us Divine guidance in a situation. When we are divinely connected with Spirit there is a sense of peacefulness and of loving thoughts and feelings. There is openness in our minds and an overwhelming sense of knowing that everything is okay and will be okay no matter what the situation.
Connecting with your Spirit is easy as thinking about someone or something you love. Feeling the energy change within you as you think of a person or an animal, you love. Doesn't it just make you smile and feel good, to think of the person or pet? Just as easily if you think of someone that you do not like your ego will pop up and start showing you subliminal pictures of past events that will start to make you feel down and sad or even mad. When Spirit is working within you, it does not fight with the Ego over the top position it is up to you to distinguish between the two and choose what you will allow and feel. Spirits voice is soft and at times can barely be heard, yet the more you connect with your inner guidance and learn how to feel only those feelings of love the more you will have experiences of guidance through your Spirit. Listen to the voice that makes you smile and feel comfortable in your own skin. Feel the love flowing within you more than several times a day. Practice staying positive, practice your listening skills hone them so as you will know the difference between the good and bad feelings as you are receiving them. You know that you can change the negative feelings that come up by concentrating on something or someone that you love. As you are thinking of the love you begin to hear spirit and will know the difference for you will feel that love begin to open your mind with new thoughts. Go with the ones that feel good and that bring you a connection with your pure spirit. Let all other thoughts fall away clearing your mind of all negative energy and thought. We have all had situations where anger and rage have won the war, but not the peace. We are at a time when urgency is needed in staying connected to our pure spirit our truth. It is up to you to make this reconnection with a new found resilience for what you are truly meant to do and be in this life. Ask for guidance from within and you shall receive it for you are pure and of love.
At times we all forget about what we are here to learn and are wrapped up in our everyday schedule busily trying to get everything done so we can relax and not think for a moment. Many people are still thinking about everything so much that they forget to relax the mind and allow Spirit to speak. Over the years I have put out this newsletter I have had times when I thought why even put it out it takes time to write it and hopefully someone will read it. I soon realize this is ego making a play for the stage thankfully I also hear that little voice saying "believe in your power of love let it flow to others as it has flowed to you. Write your newsletter know that there is at least one person who will read it and resonate with what you are teaching. Come from a space of love as you will be guided in what to write." Well that is exactly what I do! In fact as I sat down to write this today I had a whole different thought on what I was going to write about. Today I listened! I hope you will listen to your higher self and practice getting to know what love is honestly it feels wonderful.

Have a wonderful week may life treat you good and may you create something great this week for yourself and others.

What does it take to be happy?
Have you ever asked yourself this question?

What is happiness?
I feel that Happiness is a mental state of mind you consciously or unconsciously choose or do not choose to be in at any given time.
The state of happiness is something we all should work to be in at all times, and being in happiness consciously is like: Guarding a Treasure filled with the finest of jewels. You are the overseer of your mind and what is going in side your mind. You have the capabilities to change your mind each time you notice that you have lost some of the feelings of happiness within you.
So many times I have heard he or she is making me feel this way or that. Please hear me out! No one can make you feel something. It is your choice how you feel and how you react to a situation. For my self I know that there are times I have reacted to a situation and have allowed my self to be drawn to the level of sadness and despair. We have all gone through situations in our lives that we forgot to think about the positive and our happiness. We have allowed ourselves to unconsciously be drained of our happiness. Then we blame the situation or someone else for our sadness and depression. Yes there are situations that can feel like there are other energies at work draining our happiness. This is true if you have picked up a negative energy from another person, place or thing. If you feel that you have picked up a negative energy it is important to take a "Sea Salt Bath" you can do this by drawing a tub of water and pouring about a fourth of a cup in the water then relax in your bath visualizing all negative energy leaving your body. As you Rinse off after your bath visualize a brilliant mirror ball of light flowing all around your body protecting you from negative energy. It is good to use some Myrrh Essential Oil about ten drops mixed with a lotion or baby oil, smoothing it all over your body for protection.
Back to being in the state of Happiness this is what we all really desire for ourselves, our family and our friends. Yes it would be wonderful to be in such a happy mood every day wouldn't it. To do this it will take quite a bit of concentration on your part consciously. If you wake up on the wrong side of the bed it is up to you to notice your mood and change it with positive reinforcement.
" Force your self to think of something, someone or some situation that made you happy in the past.
" Recreate the energy of happiness through your thoughts.
" Now think of something that is making you happy at this moment.
" Just start laughing out loud (for no reason) do it laugh! Come on you can! This will release endorphins to your brain.
By forcing a change in your mind you can change the energy of your whole day. You will then start to notice when you are loosing your happiness and be able to quickly get it back. It is like playing mind games with your own mind. The only thing is you will have to be diligent especially if you have been depressed or down lately. It is time to take back our bliss in a sense to use our minds to enjoy this life. We have become so negative in our everyday lives that sometimes we do not laugh daily, weekly or monthly. It may be a good idea to write a list of things that make you happy or something that makes you laugh then keep this list with you when you start to feel yourself moving from a happy state of being read your list! Pull it out and read it! You may even laugh at yourself for having to pull it out to read.
Take a look at what brings you happiness in your life and what doesn't then ask your self what changes, could I make to bring happiness into my life in this instance or that situation. If you can not find any way to bring more happiness into your life by making changes then maybe it is time to let this situation go and do something new. You can not make another person happy they will have to learn to find their own happiness, as you have found yours. If you are living with someone who refuses to be happy who is always down maybe you need to get to the bottom of what is causing this and talk with this person. You can teach others to be happy by setting a good example. It is proven that people are attracted to people who are happy. It is said that you cannot buy happiness and I would have to agree that happiness is a state of mind. Choose it and use it to expand the good in your life. Happiness is an energy it attracts like energy to it so you will find that if you are exuding happiness in your life it will flow back to you. The more you do this the more your life will change and get better, better and better.

It may be that though changing our thoughts we will be able to cause a change in the way we see our lives.

March 18, 2011

On March 13th 2011 an Earth Quake hit Japan I know that many of you are sending your prayers out to the people of Japan. I too am sending my prayers out to all the people who are going the hell this disaster has caused. I can not help but think that the Planet Mercury has decided to retrograde somewhat faster than I had previously thought. In the last ten years it has seemed that whenever Mercury was about to retrograde we would begin feeling its effects about two weeks before goes retrograde. This I felt was being speeded up by the earth wobbles that have taken place in the years before.
Now it seems that we are feeling the effects of mercury retrograde about three weeks before it is said to start retrograding. I know that on Sunday March 13th I had some things take place that really made me wonder if Mercury had already started its retrograde. I had just wired new plugs in my kitchen about a week before and everything seemed to be working fine. Sunday morning I was busy cooking breakfast for my husband when I noticed that the electricity had gone off in the kitchen this caused the power to go out in the fridge and stove and some of the plug outlets. I wondered if I had done something wrong when doing the wiring as it was my first time doing something like this. My husband Robert and I worked at trying to get things back on to no avail, then all of the sudden everything was working. Good I thought to my self knowing that Robert had to work out of town all week. Later after Robert had left for his job down south, I was talking with my daughter and was telling her the story about the electricity going off, as we were talking again the lights went out on the stove and fridge. When we hung up I immediately started taking apart the outlet I thought was the culprit. Soon I had everything working again and haven't had another issue arise from my electrical work. Yea! I was kind of worried about a fire risk but all is well. Later that same day I couldn't get my internet up so I immediately called the cable company only to find out my router had gone bad. I had to wait until the next day to go get a new router. Boy! I was frustrated it seemed like everything was somehow breaking down. Monday morning I was at the electronics store at 9:30 am and home by 10:00 am putting my computer back together and had it working soon after.
A friend had called and we were taking about Mercury retrograding a little earlier than expected she told me her computer was doing weird things and wouldn't show her icons. After a few shut downs and start ups she got it working and vowed to back up her hard drive. I feel it is a great time to get those hard drives backed up like right now if possible.
We all know that when Mercury retrogrades it is time to get projects that we have started in the past finished up and to clear the clutter from our homes and offices. It is not the time to go out and buy a new car or home for we may be disappointed with the outcome of our brilliant decision. Do not buy any thing electronic or a big budget item it may not be what you really wanted or needed. If you do have some breakdowns and can live without the item for awhile I suggest putting off going out and replacing it until Mercury goes direct on April 23rd 2011. Mercury will be retrograding in Aries which can bring in distractions and lack of patience. You may also think you understand what someone is saying only to find out that you had no clue thus this can lead to misunderstandings. Be careful not to say things that you do not mean or may hurt some one's feelings. Remember words can cut deep. You are responsible for what you are putting out there so think before you speak. By being responsible and using your words for positively you can lead people with gentleness and save yourself loads of trouble. Mercury does rule communications. Do not let others who are negative rock your boat so to speak.


Earth Changes
This message comes to me and has a feeling of urgency that I feel must be told. There are Angels here to assist each of us if we ask their assistance.
This is their message:
"How is it that you believe in the love of God and the power of God yet when warnings have been given you do not heed these warning's. There are changes that are taking place upon this Earth that will continue until enough attention is given to bring peoples focus to that of humbleness rather than pride."
I feel this message is here to help us pay attention to our surroundings and to the feelings we get through out our day. Recognizing the thoughts that may or may not be our own, it may be as if we are so conditioned to think all thoughts we receive come from ourselves. I also received this message: Many Spirits are now with us and as those whom have died in the Quake in Japan souls are lifted there is more activity happening on a spiritual level than one might imagine. Communicate with your Angels at this time ask them: to warn you of any negative energy that you may encounter. Ask them for guidance in all things pertaining to your life and your safety.
With these changes our earth is making we are to be more diligent in keeping ourselves grounded at all times.
Example Just imagine yourself connected to mother earth like a trees roots going deep into the ground feel the soil beneath your feet relaxing and connecting to the magnetic energy of the earths center sending love down to the heart of this earth.
Thank you for your time in reading this I ask you to please meditate upon the message that I have given you. I would love to know if you receive any more information or if you feel your psychic senses have been a bit heightened lately. You can email me with what you receive Julie@ticklesandsparkles.com
Tickles and Sparkles from Julie
The Full Moon on Saturday March 19, 2011, promises to be quite powerful looking larger than it has in years. Honor it by gazing upon the full moon and visualizing peace through out the heavens and upon the earth. Blessings to each of you, my friends

Dear Friends
I am so very grateful for each of you as I write this newsletter I feel such gratitude to have so many friends in my life like you. Thank you for being a part of my life.

What does it take to bring Positive Changes into Your Life?
Passion
Patience
Perseverance
Positive Thoughts

If you have ever set a goal for your self and have reached this goal you must have had all of the above for your goal to have manifested. I'll bet that if you thought back about one time that you have reached your expectations of what you desired, you will find that you already have this recipe for success.
Sometimes after we have reached out goal we forget to create another one right way because we are happy in the moment. Soon the rush of happiness falls away and you wait for the next goal to come to mind before creating again. This is normal! Say you were creating a new car, you have done all the work and soon it is time for you to receive this new car. After you have it you may forget to find something new to create because you are feeling satisfied with the outcome of your creation. To keep the art of creating going it is necessary to create a new goal or what ever it is that you desire before you have attained the goal you are currently working on. It is a never ending cycle as you are the creator of your life. Your thoughts and actions are always being listened to and seen by the universe. The Universe is always prepared to give you exactly what you desire. It is not the Universe who is
What you will receive it is you. Just by having the smallest doubts you will find that it will take longer to bring your creations to manifestation. This is like sending a message kind of like out into the Universe and it says in turn okay she/ he is not quite ready for this manifestation so lets just put a hold on his /her manifestation until we get a clear go ahead "Positive Thoughts" send the message to the Universe that you are ready for your intentions to manifest.

If you have ever wanted something so much but have not received it maybe it is time to re-evaluate what it is you desire.

Is it something that you are Passionate about? In other words how passionate are you about what it is you desire?
Do you have the Patience to allow the Universe to bring what it is you desire at the perfect moment that will be just right for you?
If there are delays are you strong enough to Persevere and not just give up? Do you believe in your goal, dream, etc. are you keeping your thoughts Positive about the outcome?

Believing without a doubt that what ever it is you have set out to create is possible. This is what it takes to create your wishes hopes and dreams to come into the physical for you.
It may be time for you to evaluate your goals set new ones and create something wonderful in your life starting today.

Make a list of your goals, wishes or anything you would love to manifest.
Now take a look at them which ones are you truly passionate about?
Narrow down your list by putting a number which represents their importance to you. Focus on only those which you have the patience to wait it out for at this time. Universal timing is different from ours so know that patience is required with all creations. Are you willing to put your perseverance to the test as you create your goal? You have to be strong and keep focused on the end goal this takes perseverance on your part, so follow through without any doubts. Staying Positive is one of the most important ingredients for success. Positive thoughts are very important as you are creating what you desire. Not knowing how or when you will receive your desired only knowing that it will happen is what counts. Don't give up just let go after you have focused on what you desire. See clearly with your minds eye the outcome of your desire. Don't try to create how it will happen, just believe with all of your heart and mind that it is now on its way to you. It may take a day or it may take a week or a year but it is your creation and if you have the four P's you will see the positive results of your creation at the perfect time for you.
Have a great time Creating!

April 27, 2011

Greetings from Julie
Okay I know it has been awhile since I have put out a newsletter. I apologize for the delay I was recovering from surgery and I am very happy to report everything went very well. Honestly I think that is was the universe's way of keeping me inside and safe during the retrograde. Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers I do appreciate them.

I would like to send out a prayer this day to all the people who have been enduring the crazy weather in the central and eastern United States. I have seen what a Tornado can do it is very frightening when you see it up close. I send out love to all of you who have had to go through this kind of weather. This has been a very strange year with more Tornados than usual wrecking havoc in our country. Blessings to all that you may be safe and protected.

What Does the Future Hold for Us?
Have you ever wondered what is really going to happen tomorrow?
Do you believe it is nearing the end of times?
Gosh you would think that a person who is psychic would know what is going to happen with our world in the coming year. I have to admit I have often wondered what will really happen in 2012. Will it be the end of times? Is that it! Just one good bye! Or will we be able to change the outcome of our World by creating something better than (The End) I would hope that you too have thought about what will be our future. I wonder sometimes why if the world is going to end in 2012 aren't we making plans and changing the way we are living our lives. Maybe it is just too scary to think about or maybe we are so hardened that we feel it is easier to not believe it is possible that tomorrow may never come. I know that there are many more pressing issues taking place at this time to give (The End) a second thought.
I for one would like to believe that we can change the outcome of everything in our lives including (The End). As I have believed for years that we create everything in our lives, I also believe that we can affect the outcome of our planet and its inhabitants with our thoughts. It is now we should be focusing on bringing more love to this world as we are all connected and to remain connected we have to let go of our fears and believe that there is a way to bring a greater more powerful change that will open our minds to the power that they, our minds posses.
Psychically: I am getting that we are being challenged to open our minds and own the power that we have to affect this world for the greater good. Our brains are like computers we have only used a small portion of the space we have on our hard drives. It is time to fill our hard drives with thoughts of love and of healing towards everything and everyone on this planet. By sending out love we are creating a ripple effect for our thoughts are felt by like thoughts and multiply as I now send out thoughts of love and blessings to each of you. Each of you will return those thoughts of love to me and to other people in your life. As with our thoughts we create everything in life, remember that this is not just on a large scale but on a very small scale like creating your day through positive thought. When you are creating from a space of pure love your creations seem to manifest more rapidly because the energy of love is the most powerful energy that exists.
I hope that you too will be inspired to connect with the power of love as you create your life upon this earth. Believe that we can change (The End) to The Beginning of a wonderful enlightened world of positive thoughts and feelings for all people bringing about healing and joy to everyone.
In closing I ask you please to let go of the judgment you have held for others and for yourself. Let go of your ego and all that is not of love. Notice when your thoughts shift into a negative state. At the moment you notice your thoughts are not of love and positive, stop and change them back to a positive state. We are here for a purpose this is the time to meditate upon your purpose and focus all thoughts on only what you believe to be positive and good. I would love to hear the ways you stay positive it would nice to share your insights with our readers. Email me at Julie@ticklesandsparkles.com
May you be blessed with all that is good this week, Tickles and Sparkles.

Greetings, I hope that you are all doing great and that all of you Mother's had a great Mother's Day. For many years I dreaded Mother's Day because one way or another something got messed up and it turned out to be a day of ego's getting in the way of what should be a celebration. Over time and after all of my children were married it has got amazingly better. I think it has to do with them getting older and me too. Yesterday turned out, once again to be a wonderful Mother's Day and I had a great time. Thank you My Children and Grandchildren and thank you to My Husband for being a great sport and chauffeur. Life is good!

Imagination
What is the Imagination?

The ability to visualize: the ability to form images and ideas in the mind, especially of things never seen or never experienced directly
The creative part of the mind: the part of the mind where ideas, thoughts, and images are formed
Resourcefulness: the ability to think of ways of dealing with difficulties or problems
Creative act: an act of creating a semblance of reality, especially in literature

Mind's eye, thoughts, imaginings, dreams of fancy, mind, head
Resourcefulness, ingenuity, creativity, powers of invention, vision, inspiration, inventiveness

Your imagination is so important? Without an imagination you would soon become nothing, not existent. For without this important ability to see your thoughts, through your minds eye you would not be able to see into the past or the future. This would become void, or nothingness. Yet, most all of us have the ability to imagine. I am not an expert on how the mind works but I am an expert on how to use your imagination to create that which you really desire in life. I have been doing it for years using my imagination and playing a game of pretend to bring in what I desire. The imagination can be used as a wonderful tool to bring in what you wish for just by visualizing that you already have it. I know it sounds too easy to just think about something as if it has already happened. Then poof it happens! Not hardly!
You have to first train your imagination and this can take time. It is up to you whether you desire to put any time into the imagination of your creation.
It is like when you were young and about to buy your first car.
The excitement of thinking about driving your own car was what kept, you going you could see yourself driving around with your friends being all cool! Soon you had created that car through the use of your imagination.
The thing with the imagination is that you have to see what you desire so clearly without any doubt or thought of all that might keep you from it. You also have to let go of all thoughts of how you must make it happen. This is surrendering by allowing yourself only the thoughts and imagination of having your desire right now. The imagination is so powerful and so sweet yet allowing yourself to imagine even for a minute something negative maybe something that you may have already experienced is the worst way to sabotage yourself. Seeing clearly what you desire can bring it to you faster than you may think. By clearing your mind you can more easily visualize and imagine what you really would like or like to have happen.

Try This!
Just for a moment close your eyes and imagine yourself in a beautiful, clean white room imagine standing in the center of this room. There are four doors on each wall of the room. On each of the four doors there is a sign. The first door that you open has a sign that says "My Life" as you turn the handle and start to open the door you see your life as you would like it to be. Imagining only the good that you desire for yourself just stand in the room for awhile until you are ready to walk back through the door and onto the next room. As you move to the next door it has a sign that says "My Past" beside the door is a latch with a paddle lock you have the choice to open the door and walk inside to review your past or you may just pick up the lock and put it on the door not allowing yourself to relive the past. Which ever you choose is okay. You may choose to go see and review the past and upon returning you may then use the lock to forever keep the past just where it is "In the Past". Now there are still two doors left the next one has a sign that says "My Career" as you turn the handle and walk though this door your imagine creates what you would most desire connected with your work and income. Remembering not to think about how this may come about only that you are now doing the work you love for the perfect amount of pay just for you.
Allow your self time to enjoy creating like a scene from a movie see yourself doing what you love and being paid well for your services.
Now with one door left you notice the sign on this door that say's "My Hearts Desires" this room is connected with all things that the heart desires like love, romance, self expression, self confidence and self love. You may also use this room for healing of yourself and other people. This is a room filled with love in all thoughts and imagining's. Walk though the door and just stay for awhile giving thanks for the love that flows to you each moment from family, friends and even strangers. Notice how it lifts your spirit giving and receiving so much love. When you are ready come back through the door and take some deep relaxing breaths open your eyes and make some notes on what you have seen and how you felt with each door that you opened. If you do not have the time to go through each door you may always come back at any time to this place in your imagination.

I hope that you had a wonderful time imagining and that you will continue to create through using your imagination. Don't expect things to change instantly allow them time to be created in this physical world. It could take weeks or months of imagining before your creation is manifested. The more positive your creation is in your imagination the better and faster it will manifest for you. The Universe is known to deliver what you have thoughts about and imagined in your mind so keep it positive. Do not imagine having any control over others for this could do serious damage to your creations and delay them even if you don't choose to believe me. When you seek to control another or cause harm or willfully want for someone who is not interested in you it may back fire on you and the person may not linger for long in your company. So Girls and Boys, Be mindful in choosing what you imagine even those little things that you wouldn't think would slip through the cracks like thoughts or worries of how you could get that lost love back or make someone like you. Only the purest of imaginings is manifested. Like seeing a painting come to life, your mind can create anything as long as you imagine it through love. Have a fantastic week let your imagination have some fun.

Everyone Has an Opinion
Don't they?
Well of course everyone has an opinion, but that does not mean that your opinion does not count or that another's opinion is any better or any more powerful than yours. It is when an opinion becomes more than an opinion that we have to step back and take a look at how we form opinions about others and our own lives. We are all alike yet we are all individuals with our own thoughts and opinions. In my opinion I think that it is great to be so special that there is no other person who is exactly like me or you and you are special too. We have many web sites that allow us to give our opinions and allow our friends to give their opinions also, like twitter, face book and many more. We form opinions of others biased on their looks, their family history and family members we also form opinions about others by what they do for a living, how they wear their hair and just about everything else. It is amazing how we are always expecting to hear what other people think about any subject that you can think up. How do we let go of our opinionated thoughts and feelings so that we can be less judgmental of others. If we start to listen to our own thoughts and opinions before verbalizing them we can then sort through them and only voice an opinion if it is kind and comes from the space of love within us. This is hard and takes tons of practice it requires stamina and strength to fight off an opinion that comes into our minds when we think of something or someone we do not like. I wonder if we can truly change our opinion of someone or something.
Oh Yes! We can! By changing our opinion of life we can change the way we give these opinions out to others. Our Lives are very changeable just by making changes in what our opinions are.
Remember sometimes we give our opinion as a way of helping another person. There are other times when well intended opinions become hurtful or harmful to others. Maybe you do not feel that your opinion of another matters and it may not. But just say you voice an opinion of another and they over hear this statement and take it in a way that is not positive. This person now feels less than or hurt by your negative opinion. If you have ever been the one who feels that other peoples opinions about you count. Think again, what another person says or thinks about you really does not matter it is only what you think of your self that really counts. Example: I have heard many opinions from other people about my hair I have curly hair that can be big especially in humid weather. Through the years I must admit I have been very hurt by others opinions of how my hair looks. As I have gotten older I have come to the realization that I like my big hair and it really does not matter what anyone else thinks for it is their opinion not mine and I do not choose to own anyone else's opinion as my own. I am happier now that I have let go of caring about other peoples opinion about my hair or how I dress it really does not matter. I love and approve of my self. If another person's opinion of you bothers you I say who cares as long as you know who you are the only opinion of you that counts should be your own.

Today let's practice only stating positive opinions to others.
It is my opinion that if we focus on being positive we will listen to our heart when saying something to or about another. If it feels good and comes from the heart it will be positive and will feel good.
Wishing you positive opinions

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse Wednesday June 15, 2011

Wow! Even though this Lunar Eclipse will be felt it will not be seen in the U.S.
Eclipses push us to make changes that we have put on hold or just plain put off. It is the Universes way of making us make changes in our lives one way or another. With the intense energy that an eclipse gives out it is better not to plan an important event on this day wait a few days maybe even wait until the weekend before you put yourself out there too far. You may feel like ditching work or just playing all day, not such a great idea at this time. It is much better to focus on your responsibilities on Wednesday.

Use this Full Moon to do something fun outdoors, spend some time in Mother Nature take a walk or do some gardening. Smile and use positive body language to get your point across rather than using words of harm of negativity.
The Sun will be in Gemini which will bring in communication from people you haven't talked too in a while.
Communication will be on the forefront today you may find yourself talked out by the end of the day. Just make sure you are using words of sweetness rather than of judgment.

July 5, 2011

Greetings from Julie
I know it has been awhile since I have written a newsletter.
It has been a very busy time for me as I have been painting the inside of my house and making some much needed changes.
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July I would love to say I enjoy this holiday but I don't. I feel for the animals that have to endure the noise of humans making fools of their selves blowing fire works up. This is just my opinion but it is really sad to see my little Dog George clawing at the walls and freaking out each time there is a boom. His little heart was going so fast I really felt sad for him. As for me I laid awake until well after 1:30 am listening to the booms going off in the neighborhood. I think we should have some compassion for the animals that suffer at this time of year. Oh yes I put George in a kennel so he would be safe yet still he clawed at it the rest of the night. I hope tonight it will be more peaceful as this has gone on for a week.
I do not mean to be a party pooper I just feel there should be a better way to celebrate. The animals must feel that their world was blowing up around them. What do you think? I would love to hear your opinion on this subject!


Staying Positive
We each would love to wake each morning with a smile on our face and love in our hearts but face it life just doesn't work that way! Staying Positive takes dedication to your self in order to maintain the happy feelings in our hearts and minds. Noticing this energy is sometimes hard to do because we are so good at thinking that every thought we have must be our own. On Saturday I was working with my husband fixing up the house I had held the plumb bob as we did some aligning for a wall. When we were done I started to wind up the string then instantly there were knots that I could not explain how they got in the string. Feeling frustrated as I tried to get them out there seemed to be more and more knots. Soon I became irritated and realized that this energy was not my energy I did not know where it had come from but I knew that it was not normal for me to get so upset over string. I then decided to grab my sage wand and clear the negative energy I was feeling. After I smudged myself and the entire house everything was back to normal and I felt a great relief. The next morning my husband came into the office where I was working on my computer, his hands were clinched and his face was red as a beet he said to me "I don't know what is happening I feel so angry and I can't figure out why". I looked up at him and said that is because it is not your energy I got up from my desk and went to get the sage. As soon as I was finished smudging him with the sage I could see he was much more relaxed. He knew it was not his energy and thank goodness he realized it sooner rather than later. Where did this energy come from? I have thought about this and wondered if we had picked it up at the home improvement store where we had been the day before. Then I realized that when I was outside smashing cans on Thursday night, I had looked up at the second story window of a home across the block. An old man had died there about a year ago. His wife had moved out and into a rest home shortly after his death. As I looked at the window I heard a voice that said "she left me here all alone".
I knew it was the old man, he had seen me looking at the window where his spirit stood. I went into my house and chills went through me as I stood there telling my husband what I saw and heard. I think I must have picked up some spirit energy. Sometimes it takes awhile to figure out where and when you pick up energy that is not your own. Being aware of the energy around you is so important because you can pick up negative energy just about anywhere, any time and from anyone living or deceased. It is always good to have a White Sage Bundle handy for such times.
Staying Positive is a state of mind we have to constantly have to keep reminding ourselves to be in. This is the only way that we can recognize when energy that is negative is in our space or trying to take over. Ego can play a big part in our energy and can be positive or negative depending on how you allow your spiritual self to interact with your ego self.
Make this the week you decide to work within your spiritual self and let go of the ego self that can create havoc in your life. How do you do this? Just ask yourself "is this me?" Am I coming from a place of love? Do these feelings make me feel good in my heart and mind? Soon you will be able to recognize the signs that the energy you are feeling is or is not your own.

Well this was not what I had thought I was going to write about today but I guess there is a reason to tell this story and hopefully it will help you in some way. Blessings from Julie/Tickles and Sparkles!


August 1, 2011

Dear Friends,
I know it has been awhile since I have written a newsletter but now I am back on track after a long over due overhaul on my living room and dining room. I have to say all the hard work has paid off and I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I am an artist yet I really don't care to paint walls I usually end up with most of the paint on me.
That said I am so happy I have the time today to get this written and as always I hope you will enjoy reading Staying on Track by Staying Positive with Tickles and Sparkles.

August 2, 2011 Mercury will once again go Retrograde

Yes, I know it comes around all too often! This time it will be with us until August 26th 2011. I am sure you know the drill when it comes to Mercury Retrograde, Re- should be placed in front of anything you are planning to do this month. Re-do, re-place, re-peat, re-fine, re-organize. I have already noticed the effects of the retrograde happening for many people including my self. So just relax and take time to realign your self this month with the goals you are setting forth for yourself. Remember that it is not a good time to spend large amounts of money on luxury items or cars, homes etc… Wait instead until September to invest in the above or in anything electronic.
One last Note: Mercury rules communication please NOTICE when ego is pushing you to argue a point rather than just let it go. Have a wonderful retrograde all.

Divine Guidance

At this place in time we are being given an opportunity to take a look at our lives and see the importance of our lives here on this beautiful Earth. We have been given many blessings that have brought us to this time. Now it is time once again to expand our knowledge and ask for the Divine Guidance to begin healing all that is ailing this earth and its inhabitants. Some of us have noticed that it is easier than ever before to trust our intuition and allow it to guide us. Now it is time that we focus our energy on the entire world allowing all judgment and fears to fall away, bringing peacefulness to the fore front of our minds. To do this will require concentration for you have the ability to control what you think and act upon. Let love fill your heart and minds as you can then make the changes you have dreamed of. Allow others their lives as you have your own life to live. Work together for this will help in bring the desired changes for your self and for other people. Thank You

The above message came to me as I sat at my computer today writing this newsletter. I prayed for assistance and guidance as I began writing. I had another subject in mind but it quickly left as I began. I have read over the above several times because I feel that this message is deeper that I first thought. I do believe it is time to start using our gifts to send healing love to all of this earth. By not being choosy about who and what we send our love to, we are letting go of judgment. Then is when we are able to see the affects of what love can do for this world. I love you all my friends, Tickles and Sparkles from Julie

Greetings from Julie
Wishing you a wonderful week starting the moment you open this newsletter. I hope you are getting through this retrograde and still have your wits about you. So far it has been fairly good nothing major has gone wrong "Knock on Wood". The 26th of August is right around the corner and we should start noticing the energy changing for the better very soon. Keep your thoughts positive and breathe! Especially if you encounter a situation that is frustrating! Hold off until Mercury Retrograde ends on the 26th of August if making important decisions or signing important papers.

Being Spoiled doesn't mean Rotten

Many of us would never admit that we are spoiled or that we have spoiled our children in any way. But it is time to look at what is happening in our society and in our lives. Now I am not saying that you are not deserving of the best in life, because in fact you are. Yes! You and I deserve everything we desire to create in this life. Sadly there are people who have given up on their dreams with the loss of income and homes in the past few years, people have given up hope for the possibility of their dreams ever coming true. I know families that have lost everything and other families that have been quite lucky and fortunate that they are still financially secure. Yet even some of them live in fear wondering if next week they will have a job to go too.
With so much fear we forget to create what we desire by using our minds to visualize a better outcome to our future. Some people have just given up on their dreams of success I hope you are not one of those people! If so you may not want to even finish reading this newsletter. Now if you are a person who desires more out of life than letting the energies of universal thought bring you down. It may be time to start changing the energy around you by fighting off the negative energies you encounter each day. By thinking positive you send that energy out into the universe it thereby attracts more energy of the same returning to you at an unknown time as something positive in your life. We have talked about this subject many times as most of you know you create everything in your life first through your thoughts. Secondly you create through your actions, and thirdly through your voice as your voice is energy. If you have a ruff time believing that your voice contains energy put your hand up to your mouth and say the words "I love you" feel your breath on your hand. This is energy! So simple yet so hard to control when you are angry what usually happens? Do you yell, scream, or feel tensions welling up inside of you waiting to explode. That is energy also! The kind of energy you should recognize quickly before you put it out into the universe. For once out there it is already on its way back to you in one form or another. I know that there are times I have had to immediately hit the cancel, cancel clear button in my mind to get rid of the frustrations that are going on within me. And yes I too have said out loud many words I would love to erase, when I was angry. None of us are perfect! But thank goodness we have the power within us to change our thoughts and our feelings because we are in control. Being spoiled does not have to mean being selfish or rude to those who do not have as much as you. It just means it is okay to create what you desire and go for your goals without harm to anyone.

As a child I grew up in a home where we did not have a lot of anything. Yes life was difficult at times but I found value in what I did have. When I got older and had children four of them I learned that if you give to one you have to give to all of them. I learned that love was the most important gift you could give your children, not something bought off the shelf. Yet today many parents feel the need to shower their children with gifts instead of their time and love. Today people are spoiling their children with material things instead of the love that would give them more compassion and goodness towards others. Children of parents who have a regular income and can afford gifts have now become in competition with other children that do not have as much. I have a young grandson that will only wear name brand clothing, to that I say maybe it is time to teach this child how to sew "I taught my oldest son how to sew and he actually made his own school clothes". Or maybe it is time he learned that he can earn his own money by doing chores for an allowance. Children need to learn how to create what they desire in life. They need to learn that it is okay not to have name brands no matter how rich or poor your parents are. I am very concerned about the children growing up today it seems they have no understanding of where the money comes from beyond Mom and Dad. So I have a challenge for you Parents out there how about this Christmas instead of showering your children with an overload of gifts, give them just one this year. Then teach them make gifts for their friends and family. It is not cruel or unusual punishment! Really they will thank you when they are older for taking the time to teach them what giving is all about. With Love we can spoil our children in a positive way. This may someday make our country stronger because by spoiling our children through teaching them that they can create anything in their lives that they desire by being positive and allowing their minds to be creative. Maybe these hard times can get better and our country get stronger through instilling in the youth of today goal setting and moral values that are beyond the superficial. It is the children of these days that will rule our country tomorrow. I hope that we will not have to endure selfish spoiled brats in charge of our country. Much like is happening right now with our leaders. Remember when the "Golden Rule" ruled? "Do unto others as you would want others to do unto you" It is not a step backwards but a leap forwards.
I send you all love, and may the week ahead bring great blessings into your life.

August 29, 2011

Much joy to all this week if you haven't written down ten wishes it would be a great idea to do so as yesterday August 28, 2011 was the New Moon and you still have time to get those wishes written.

Life's lessons
We have all had many life's lessons for as long as we have been alive on this earth. Each person has many different and unique lessons that are theirs alone. By recognizing that we have been there done that once before, we also get that we do not have to try to go through the same lesson the same way again if we choose not too. When you are young the lessons you learn may soon be forgotten and then some kind of similar lesson pops up. That is when you may or may not choose to make the same choices as before with the similar lesson. We have all at one time or another had to relearn a lesson or two. It is like we thought we could do it the same way and things would turn out differently. Only to our surprise do we realize that it doesn't work that way. As we progress in life the lessons keep coming and we learn some of them quite quickly and others we get to by pass all together because we recognize that we have learned that lesson and can move onto the next without going through the same thing over and over again.
I am thankful for the lessons I have learned and continue to learn in this lifetime. I am thankful for the lessons that have taught me about love and how to love for these lessons are what have made me who I am today. I am sure that you too have had lessons that have made you the person you are today.
At the beginning of each day ask for Divine guidance in learning each lesson given you today so that it will be a positive lesson and that it may help to bring about a positive change not only for you but for whom ever you are involved with in this lesson. When we ask for this guidance it is given to us even if we do not recognize it at the time. I find being grateful ahead of time brings about wonderful results in all aspects of life and its lessons.
Have a wonderful week and remember there are reasons for everything! Even if we do not understand at this time we will eventually. It could be in an hour or a day or a few months, think it is all about just trusting Universal timing.

September 14, 2011

Greetings Friends,

I hope life is treating you good! I also hope that you are staying positive in times when you may not feel so positive.

I know that sometimes it is hard to stay positive when things get you down. That is why we have to remind ourselves to let go and let God or the Universe, bring in the right answers for us.

Yes I know it is easy to say "Just let it go" but much more challenging to really do it!
Within the last week, I had to learn a lesson in letting go of my fears and worries. This was very challenging because it involved my cat Garfy she had gotten very ill. I took her to see the Vet hoping to find out what had happened to make her so ill. She spent a couple of days there before we could take her home. During the first night I was so down with worry I couldn't even think straight. When out of the blue I felt a feeling of great comfort telling me to trust that she, Garfy would be alright and believe in what I tell others. Let go of fears and see her healthy. Soon I was focusing on seeing her healthy as I talked with the "Kitty Gods" asking them to keep her safe and let her know I love her. All of the fear energy started leaving me as I felt a sense of peace come over me. I instantly knew she was feeling better. I know I had been picking up on her energy. The Vet called soon after that to tell me she was doing better, but they were going to keep her over night. We picked her up two days later thank goodness. I have to say I was so happy! She is doing so much better now but I still had some more of the "lesson in letting go" to learn. I had started letting her go outside yesterday she loves being outside. This morning she did not come in for breakfast, the panic set in and I went full force into panic. This lasted for about three minutes until I saw her eyes out in the dark of the yard as I flashed the flashlight around. As it got lighter she still had not come in I started into the fear and then suddenly I remembered that I had to trust that God would take care of this situation, that she would be okay. I had to leg go of the fear as soon as I noticed it! Putting every ounce of faith I have into the trust that everything happens for a reason and that God does work miracles. I went about my shower, choosing to let go and focusing on positive only thoughts.
Too my surprise! I walked out of the bathroom and saw her lying on the bed like a princess. I have a feeling everything will be ok! I have learned this lesson now I will focus on creating a more positive lesson that will inspire me with more positive thoughts.

"Believe in the Power of Positive and of Love. Put the thoughts of worry and fear into the hands of God for that is where change begins."

Aries: You may be hoping for reconciliation if there has been a recent break-up. I am sad to tell you that there is much jealousy in your home or that this person is not being honest with you. It may be you that needs to let go of your own jealousy and remember you are the master of your own life. This is especially true if you are a dark haired woman that has gone through loss. Use your strength to find your way out of the confusion this will bring in good news very soon for you.

Taurus: If you thinking about making changes that would allow you to seek out what you really would love to do as far as a career is concerned, don't think yourself foolish for the only mistake would be not to go for your dreams. You will see many changes in the next couple of weeks one of these changes concerns some bad news you hear of a dark haired man. If you are a man it may be time to take your lady somewhere out of the way for a little romantic vacation. Now if you are a woman it may be time to contemplate going on that camping trip with your man or maybe just planning a little get away for two.

Gemini: Okay maybe you have felt a little doubt about a brown haired man and maybe he hurt your feelings or broke your heart. It is time to focus on letting go of the fears that make you feel vulnerable. The storm is passing and abundance follows. Just like the rain feeds the fields when the anger fears and worries are gone the money will flow. You may soon meet a stranger who is a gray haired man or a light haired man he will help you as long as you are diligent in what you desire and are willing to work for it.

Cancer: There is power in a lesson that will inspire you very soon. It is time to pay attention to the signs you are given and to Stop, Look and Listen to what you are receiving through these signs. There is an end of destruction through taking the path of peace. A friend will soon bring you hope this is a brown haired woman.

Leo: You will soon find love and generosity through your talents. Through your faith you will find out about someone you may consider a hidden enemy, you will know this because you will see greed in this person. A man you know quite well may cause a scandal in public this will help you in seeing who this person really is that is when the barriers will melt for you there will be a sense of victory filling your heart and mind.

Virgo: There are new beginnings for you dear Virgo you have been patient and now a surprise will soon arrive. This may be an invitation of something that will make you very happy. There is happiness and justice in a situation concerning a relationship where there is a sexual attraction. The future brings in clarity and good fortune to you.

Libra: Through judgment from a lady that is close to you there will be an ending that is going to blow the top off of things. This situation may go in either of tow directions no matter what happens there is a battle brewing and there are secrets being told you by a gray haired woman or blond haired woman. There is truth coming out of this challenge and also there is growth for you for it is now time to look your self in the mirror and see the loving soul in the glass for a heart to heart with your higher self will do you good and you may come out on top in this situation.

Scorpio: A woman of the world may soon talk to you about an opportunity that could bring you fame this will take you back, a bit because it will present a new pathway for you. It is time to use your best judgment go with what makes you feel the best. Soon there is some bad news from or about an older man who is very generous. A stranger will soon be a spiritual inspiration to you or for you.

Sagittarius: It may be time to do a reading for yourself or have one done there is some confusion at or around the home that you need to look into. There may have been heart break in the past but love is right around the corner for you if single. On the other hand there may be a disagreement that has caused you heartbreak this may come about if it hasn't already. Do not despair for there is an opportunity to make up and have a loving, romantic
Interlude with the one you love. If you have broken up with a dark haired man or are a dark haired man, there may be thoughts of reconciliation. I have to say the outcome does not look good for this relationship to be lasting.

Capricorn: There is good fortune on its way to you this news arrives from a light haired or older woman and will help you in finding the truth about something you have been trying to figure out. Through a mistake in communication there will be secrets told or someone will talk behind your back. You are about to find your true power dear Capricorn it will bring you great peace and an ending to a situation you have worried about.

Aquarius: If you are a lady there is justice for you it comes with forgiveness on your part. Or Justice is now brought you by a lady and you will forgive her for a past transgression. A scandal may cause you to think about moving on or making a journey this is something you must use wisdom in deciding. Through patience there is an answer to the battle of who has been deceiving you. You will soon find out who this person or person's is.

Pisces: A dark haired woman will soon ask your thoughts about what she has worried about do not doubt yourself you do have the answers for her just listen to the thoughts you are receiving and give them to her in a pleasant way. Through loss there have been many challenges with attaining wealth. Yes it has been a ruff road, but now there are new beginnings that are golden and there is a side of you that will be so happy the tide has turned in your favor. Believe.


September 26, 2011

Greetings Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to start your week with a smile on your face.

Tuesday September 27, 2011 is the New Moon
The new moon is a time when we write down ten wishes and put them into a wish box or keep them with you in your wallet or purse. The New Moon is also the time when we look at what we desire to bring into our lives during the next month.

The Rewarding Feelings of Accomplishment

I have written before on making lists of the tasks that we desire to accomplish during the week and of setting goals for ourselves. I have found that when I ask people if they have made a list of what they desire to accomplish each week they say "sure it is in my head". Okay People I believe that it is possible to keep a list of "to do's" in your head or should I say mind. The thing is that you are not checking off the things you do accomplish during the day if you have your list just in your mind and we definitely know that the mind is ever changing. I have found that if we take ten minutes to make a list on paper then each time we accomplish a task we check it off our list. By the end of the day you usually can feel pretty good about yourself and what you have accomplished during the day. Making lists are not just to see what you can accomplish but they can really help with your self-esteem giving you a sense of satisfaction. Many times you will find that you will accomplish so much more during the day by having a list that you can look and be reminded of what is next on your agenda. Many people have so much to do each day that is hard to keep everything on track because they do not have a list and the list in your mind can be soon forgotten if something or some situation that needs immediate attention comes up during the day. Leaving you to re think what you have to get accomplished before the end of the day. My husband is always making up "Three week look a-heads" for his work. It keeps him on track and allows for him to bring into perspective what he has to do to keep the job going and bring it in on time. I have to say I have done this and know that trying to figure out what is happening three weeks down the road is really a challenge yet it gives an outline for what we have to get accomplished. I like to get my list started on Monday mornings while I am sipping some coffee I write out a daily list of things I will accomplish that day. I also put long term goals in there to be done when time permits. The best reward is at the end of the day when I look at all the things I have checked off of my list and can say this has been a great day! I now challenge you to start making your list of things you will accomplish in one week. Leave room to ad to it or change things up a bit if you have too. I hope that you will really work on this one because I believe that you too will feel this great sense of accomplishment within yourself also. Today I have just checked off something on my list by writing this newsletter and yes I do feel like I have accomplished something big each time I write these newsletters. Have a wonderful week! Please let me know it this works for you also, I would love to hear from you and how you keep up with all the tasks at hand each week.
By Staying Positive and Accomplishing what you set out to do each day you will find you are a happier person with even more energy.

Happy Month of Halloween
I do not know why I love Halloween so much I guess it is because it is a time of having fun and enjoying the parties and gatherings that are a part of this time. I wish you all a very happy month and luck in finding that right costume! You could win a free 30 minute reading with Julie just by emailing a picture of you in your costume to Julie@ticklesandsparkles.com Good Luck!

Miracles begin the Moment I let go!
We all wish to have something wonderful happen in our lives, be it Love Happiness or Prosperity. What ever it is and maybe it is all three but when you come right down to it you already have these things and maybe they go unnoticed at times. All are accessible to us already all we have to do is act as if it is already here for us. When we do this we are giving the "Universe" or "God" a sign that we are ready for our good to rush in. We all have our worries and burdens. It is when we release our preconceived notions of how and when and where that our good will come in, at that point in time is when the miracles can then manifest into our lives. I tell people sometimes you have to get to your wits end before you get your answers. Why is this? Because when you are at your wits end is when you finally can let go and let God or the Universe take over the reigns for you. Expect good things to happen for you and even if they do not happen right now keep expecting for the more good energy you are putting out there the more you are attracting. Pretty soon you will notice changes in yourself and what you are attracting to you will be better, better and better if you keep your thoughts and feelings positive you just may be amazed at the miracles that come in for you.

Wednesday October 26, 2011 is the New Moon
This is the day to write down Your Ten Wishes

How can you stay happy when everyone and everything around you seems so negative?

That must be what is called a million dollar question! Yet maybe it is a question that we all have in our minds especially when things are not going so well. Yep! I agree it is hard to keep balanced and happy when everyone around you seems to put out negative vibrations. The truth is though it may be hard to be happy when others are not it is only you who is in charge of your own emotions and feelings.
Too often we allow others to rule our emotional world we have learned it is easier to follow along the same path rather than explore our own. Sometimes there are situations that zap our energy and leave us sad or angry or just worn out. Well it is time to take back your happiness and energy hold it close to you even when things are tough. You do not have to give it away in favor of being negative or fearful or worried. Yes it is easy to go with the flow and allow yourself to fall into the stress of what is happening around you but just as easy you can choose to be happy and know that everything is always happening for a reason. If you find yourself feeling down and stressed from all the negative energy around you take some time to balance your energy by taking some deep breaths in through the nose and out through the mouth. This will bring you back to balance allowing you to focus your thoughts on something that is positive and brings to mind happy feelings. It can be something so, simple as forcing your self to laugh out loud until it becomes real and not forced. Or thinking of a time that was so hilarious you could not stop laughing. Remember it is up to you to make your own happiness no one can do this for you and no one can ever make you happy it is up to you to decide that you are a happy person and you are going to choose happiness. Yes I know that it is hard to be happy all the time I know this because I too am human. I also know that we can start changing that which makes us unhappy by changing our thoughts, kind of like retraining the brain to think in a different way it just takes practice.
Here is a way I have found to be quite successful at bringing me out of a sad mood and into a happier state of mind by singing a little song. A few weeks ago I found myself singing a little song I learned when I was a child (This Little Light of Mine I'm Gona Let it Shine) it brightened my mood and kept me bouncing all day long. Have a wonderful week my friends and stay happy and positive. Tickles and Sparkles from Julie

Congratulations to Linda Usher who has won the Halloween Costume Contest. Please email me Julie@ticklesandsparkles.com or call me at 916-726-4892 for your appointment for a Norwegian Card Reading with Julie

We had a great time in Virginia City, NV Ghost Hunting, I was amazed to see so many orbs in our pictures, I have placed some of them on my Face book page, I would put more pictures in this newsletter but anyone with a AOL account rejects them and I have to send out email separately, that could take forever. You can email me and I will be glad to share with you.

Get your Christmas Shopping Early this Year!
Mercury will be turning retrograde again on November 24th 2011 Thanksgiving Day and will turn direct again on December 13th 2011.
Try not to buy any electronics between these dates unless you absolutely have too even then you may have to return what you bought.

I call November the Month of Gratitude instead of waiting for Thanksgiving Day to be grateful for all that you have, start today thinking about what you are grateful for.
The more gratitude you have the more you attract the instances that you can be grateful for. It is easier than you would think because you already have much to be grateful for in your life and even within your own body and mind you will find so much that will keep you in the mindset of gratitude. Remember November doesn't have to be the only month of gratitude for each day of our lives we should hold that thought of gratitude in your hearts and minds this will keep us from going into a negative mindset during any time of the year. I know I could make a list more than a mile long and that would be without trying. Being happy and grateful go hand in hand when you feel happy or grateful you tend to smile even without noticing it you are changing the energy around you by sending out those happy and grateful thoughts. Have a wonderful day my friends, enjoy it to its fullest and be ready for a great tomorrow. Tickles and Sparkles from Julie

Happy Thanksgiving My friends, Wishing, you a great Turkey day filled with good company and good food. Every day should be a day of giving thanks but, I guess it takes a holiday or a special day to really remind everyone of giving thanks for all we have in this life. Let us start this week off by giving thanks each day for the life we have and the love in each of our lives. We all know that what we give we receive no matter what it is. Even if we do not really mean what we are saying when we blurt out something negative. The Universe will deliver exactly what you put out back to you in the same way you gave it out. Boy! That should be enough to get you to change your way of thinking and speaking words that are not positive. Yet in the moment there are still those who will forget about being positive and thinking positive. This year lets really get into the mode of POSITIVE THINKING lets start this before the new year so as this year ends we will already be off and running on a more positive path to our future.

Feel the love surrounding you at this moment just stop what you are doing and breathe it in, then release it as love to all those in need of love at this moment.

November 24, 2011 Mercury Retrograde
It really bugs me that there has to be a retrograde during the Holiday Season but I guess the planets are in control and we just have to get through this time. Mercury will be retrograde until December 13th 2011. What does this mean for you and me? It is not a good time to go out on "Black Friday" and buy electronics as gifts. Why you might ask is this? Well Mercury rules communication and seems to interfere with anything electronic when it is retrograde. This means you or the person that you gave the wonderful electronic gift too may be returning it come December 26th. In fact I bet if you work in a department store you will find that there will be more returns than usual this year. Okay so you have had your eye on a new car for a loved one and would like to give them something special this year. Do not buy it until after December 18th in fact if you can wait until after December 18th 2011 to buy any major gift or electronic purchase it would be wise to do so. If you haven't shopped early please consider waiting until a little later to do your Christmas shopping. Sorry for the bad news, I much prefer giving out happy news. Another little tidbit I have to throw in is to be especially nice this year at Thanksgiving Dinner. Remember that old saying "Do not say anything unless you have something nice to say". There could be big flare ups because Thanksgiving is on the same day as Mercury goes retrograde.
All in all there is much to be thankful for this year and in fact each day of your life. All you have to do is think about the good things in life.

Seasons Greetings to all my friends, I would like to thank you for all the wonderful emails I have received from you this year. It is a wonderful pleasure to write these newsletters every other week for you.
I have to say thank you for your dedication to read these newsletters is what keeps me writing them. Blessings to all of you, may life always get better, better and better for you.


The Gift of Giving

The gift of giving is not about how much or even what you give to another. Fore what it is truly about is the heart felt feelings that connect us when we see the smile on the other persons face when you have given a gift to them. Gifts can come in many shapes and sizes they can be large or small, yet still hold great meaning for the person who is receiving them and even for the person who is giving them. Have you ever felt so wonderful when you have given a gift that brings such a glow to the receiver's face, it almost brings tears of joy to you knowing that you have made someone very happy.
I think pretty much all of us reading this have had this experience in the past. Now it is time once again to figure out what gifts we will be giving to others this Christmas or "Gift Giving Day" as I call it.
As we rush around in the mist of a "Mercury Retrograde" trying to figure out what to buy focusing our energy on how much to spend on one person or another. With times being tight we seem to forget about the sentiment in giving a gift that really comes from the heart. I have been to the Mall people! and I have seen the faces with frowns through out the stores. It is so sad to see that people have forgotten to smile and be in their bliss even thought times are tight. As you go out to buy those gifts this year be sure to remember to be in your bliss to smile with sincerity. Displaying a kind and courteous manner towards other's where ever you are this Christmas Season.
A gift can be as simple as a kind gesture to another or a dollar to a stranger in need. Which reminds me of a young man, I saw as I was leaving Sam's Club about a week ago. It was early in the morning about 9:00 am as I walked to my car with a basket of groceries. A young man around seventeen or eighteen walked up to me as I opened my trunk to unload my groceries. He asked me if I had change for buss fare, I looked at him quickly and said no as I hurriedly finished loading my groceries. As I went to put my cart away I saw the young man again walking towards me he again asked for change for the bus. I told him he had already asked me that question. He then told me he was 99% blind and he was very sorry. As I got into my car I felt bad that I had not given the young man some change. I guess I use caution when someone walks up on me in a parking lot as I think we all do or should. Boy that really is sad that we have to feel like we have to protect our selves from other people. Anyway, as I started to drive across the parking lot I noticed the young man once more, I grabbed the last two dollars I had in my purse and drove up to him slowly. I then said to him "hey here is two dollars for you" he walked up slowly as I held the two dollars out the window for him, he then cupped his hands as I put the money in them. He thanked me as I drove off and headed to the bus stop. I have to say I know that I felt good inside for giving him the money. I am also sure that there was a reason for him being there at that moment and for this experience. It is a gift just to recognize that gifts no matter how large or small can be rewarding for the gift giver as much as they are for the receiver.
Just by helping a stranger you receive a gift of joy that fills your heart and mind. This magical feeling is what love is. Make this a season to remember by giving of your self or donating to those less fortunate. I am sure it will make a difference in their lives as well as yours.

Remind your children also that this time of year is not just all about receiving but to give back by donating those toys that have been slightly used to some child who would not have Christmas without them.

Gemini: What was thought to be a mistake is really a victory that will bring a spiritual awakening for you.

You may feel a little frustrated by a lady friend. Or you could be telling your frustration to a lady who is a friend.

Cancer: There is hope where you may have feared a scandal of sorts stay patient and know that everything will be okay. It is all about timing. A woman will talk to you on the phone about wealth and you will feel her anxiety she knows more than what she is telling. Or you may be anxious about some money that is expected or a gambling tip that will bring unexpected money. There is an ending for an important man a master he will soon make a judgment call that will take him down another road in life.

Leo: A fair haired woman will soon bring in happiness and abundance is coming in for you. A challenge will bring about good fortune this may concern a reconciliation of a relationship. Wow!

It seems that you will want to jump for joy with this outcome, your future looks pretty bright at this time.

Virgo: Change is now bringing in truths that will release all your doubts.

Or a note or letter will surprise you about a person. You may hear of a loss of a large sum of money through greed.

Scorpio: If you have been focusing on big gains by being a bit foolish there is soon a chance for new growth for you by making some big choices. A fair haired man or gray haired man will soon talk to you about a romantic relationship. This news could even come from a stranger or a person who was hired to watch over this situation. There is a hidden enemy that may tempt you with a sexual attraction, the instant it happens you will have clarity about something you have been wondering about.

Sagittarius: You have been quite patient with someone's mistakes, it takes talent to keep putting up a strong front while dealing with others downfalls.

Pisces: Reconciliation with another may bring jealousy from someone which will be unexpected. The lesson here is to realize that sometimes things just we not suppose to work out.

Through the generosity of another you will have much hope there is soon justice in a situation that has been hindering your progress. Renewed hope for your future.

Wow! It is really the end of yet another year!

Greetings my friends,
I wonder if any of you woke up this morning feeling a relieved feeling in your minds after rushing around for weeks reading yourself and families for the big day "Christmas" and now that it is over you may have to get back on track with what ever demands in life are calling out to you.

In my heart I feel the need to ready my self for the New Year by getting together old magazines and some new ones to that have pictures of things I would like to do and places I would like to see. I love to hang out on New Years Day putting together my wish board for the upcoming year. I usually save the catalogs I received in the mail before Christmas so I can cut out pictures of things I would love to have in the New Year also. I think New Years Day is one of the best Days of the Year to start creating what we desire in the future. So gather together all the supplies you will need to create your very own wish board which will include: Poster Board, Glue Sticks, Scissors, and Sharpie pens. On New Years Day gather family and friends together and have some old fashioned fun creating your future.

Be sure to have some Black Eyed Peas cooked up for your New Year's Day celebration it is said that if you eat black eyed peas on New Years Day you will have good luck thought out the year.

For Good Luck and Prosperity in the New Year
Eat Black Eyed Peas and Drink Champagne for breakfast on
New Years Day!

Here is My Recipe for Black Eyed Peas and Ham
1: Small package dried Black Eyed Peas (found in the beans and rice section at your grocery store.)
2: ½ half pound of diced ham
3: 1 small yellow onion chopped into small pieces
Put peas into a colander and wash under warm water. Then put peas into medium sized pan and add the onions and ham add water until it covers the peas with two inches of water, bring to a boil and then simmer until peas are soft. Adding water if needed while cooking. You can season to taste with salt and pepper or herbs of you're choosing.
Cooking time is about one hour

Now you are ready for Breakfast! Enjoy with a sip of champagne.

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
1-one teaspoon of sugar as you add the sugar state your wish out loud, then add the sugar to the mixture
The petals of three Roses, one white, one Red and one Yellow
A teaspoon of your favorite Cologne
One half bottle of Champagne

Mix all the ingredients together in the large bowl and this may sound weird but is true and quite fun, and can be especially fun with someone you love.
Take the mixture into the shower and rub it all over your body while thinking that your wish has come true and visualize the most wonderful out come to the situation or wish and feel the energy within you and about as you rub the magical mixture all over your body. When you have used all the mixture rinse your body and dry off with a clean towel. Light a candle of your choice and have a sip of the champagne make a toast to your wonderful future. Blessed be

Here is a list of things you should do and should not do on New Years Day to bring in good luck all year long!

The first one is an important do not!
#1- Do not do laundry on New Years Day or you may wash someone out of your life in the next year.

#2- Whatever you are doing on New Years Day, know that you may be doing quite a bit of it throughout the year. So make the most of this day!
Be happy. Share your day with good friends. Make a list of your wishes and aspirations.

Make a Wish Board by using a poster board and filling it with pictures of what you would like to have this New Year.
I buy plenty of magazines and glue sticks for this wonderful New Years Day Project that is fun for family and friends. When you have finished your wish board you can frame it with a Poster Frame or just pin it to a wall where you will see it every day. Invite some friends over and have some fun!

#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 though out the month.


Spiritual Readings with Julie
Using the Norwegian Lay of regular playing cards I have been able to help many people understand what is coming up for them in the near future. It may be that you would like to know what may be happening in your present work situation or you need a question answered that you haven't been able to answer yourself. I find that some people are afraid of having a reading done for fear of learning something bad. I tell them it is far better to have a sense of what is happening in your life than letting the universe take the wheel so to speak. Almost all of my readings are positive and if there is something that is not so positive, I tell people that there are always ways to change things and then if they still happen there is a definite reason for this.
My readings are very informative so be sure to have a pen and paper handy when you have yours.
