Dear Encouraging Readers,

Encouragement comes in many ways… through a lovely hug, through the spoken words “I love you,” through an inspiring quote, through the hummingbird outside your window, through the eyes of your dog.

Over the weekend, it came through friendship. Danielle Boyle, a friend and my kindred daughter, sent me three cards by Doreen Virtue to lift my spirit. They resonated with me, and they were prophetic.


The first card came as Isaiah.  “It’s a good time to give birth to new ideas and situations in your life.  I am watching over you, guiding you, and protecting you during these changes.”


Prophetic because I’m changing. Pierre is changing. Our family is changing. I’ve played it safe, small, and stuck for too long. Courage and comfort go with me as I venture into new ideas and new situations in my life. Shifting energy by shifting thoughts. Thoughts become things. I’m aware now when I think things not in alignment with Source. My life is changing. I’ve been in an incubation period for over 40 years, and I can feel it. But that incubation period is coming to an end. New birth! New beginnings!

The second card revealed was “Omega.” “Victory! Your desire is coming to fruition. Keep up the good work!”

I’m listening to my heart and not my head. It’s a big one for me. My head (E.G.O.) gets me in trouble with analyzing, worrying, fearing. So much misdirected energy! As I listen to the gentle tuning of my heart, synchronicities appear effortless. I’m in sync with Spirit. I can move through life effortlessly, gracefully. And I can choose happiness. It’s truly a choice. Victory is inevitable because my alignment is inevitable.

The third card was “Athena.” “It is safe for you to be powerful. You know how to be powerful in a loving way that benefits others as well as yourself.”


Sometimes, I played it small by not shining brightly. But it doesn’t serve me or others. And if others don’t like my brilliance, it’s really their issue, not mine. As I balance my masculine and feminine energy, my heart truly opens. And from the place of love, power can never be abused. In fact, divine power heals your self-esteem, life purpose, and relationships. Oh, I can use some healing. Could you?

May you give encouragement. May you receive encouragement. Encouragement in many forms are truly messages from the divine to awaken us to possibilities.

Who do you need to encourage today? Pick up the phone. Give the hug. Offer that forgiveness. Thanks Danielle.
