Hey guys. It’s no secret that in the recent months tragedy after tragedy has occurred, leaving us feeling scared, vulnerable, and uneasy. Some of us feel these things more than others, and that is okay. Some of us try to block it out and ignore it, and that isn’t okay. As lightworkers, we are going to be confronted with negative situations and we have to know how to handle them, or we won’t be very effective in our healing work.
Our job description is to help the world and be able to spread light and love to heal all that is wrong. We can’t do this by blocking out negativity. Think of a wave of water coming at you, if you anchor yourself into the sand, you have a better chance of staying on your feet when you are anchored.
That is what grounding does for us! By grounding, we remain unmovable in our beliefs and in the light that we are here to spread.
So how can you remain grounded? I’m glad you asked.
- Unplug from the media and technology. It is so easy to get engrossed in your computer, phone, tablet, tv, and whatever else you have. While these things aren’t bad at all (I work at Verizon so they literally help me pay bills) but they are tools that can bring us down and keep us in a cycle of fear energy that we don’t need.
- Take a walk in nature. So this may seem obvious but it can really help to connect with nature and just relax. However, if it is too hot to go outside, then listen to nature music, spend time with your pet, get a plant, something to bring nature to you.
- Ask for help! Know that your Angels are ALWAYS around you and WANT to help you! Sometimes we get lost in all of the hurt and confusion of the world and we wonder where our help is. The answer is all around us. I am so guilty of this. I sit back and wonder, why is this happening? And then I realize that I have a small part in helping this, just like you do. We can ask our Angels to help us get, and stay, grounded and they WILL reply.
- Meditate. This is a hard one for a lot of people, myself included, to do consistently because life does get in the way and we lose our priorities along the way. This isn’t a beat up, but we all do it. Meditation is wonderful for connecting us to Source/God/The Universe and our Angels to receive messages that can help the world grow and help us grow stronger.
- This is one of my favorites to do. You can actually do this as you are sitting down at work, home, or school. Visualize roots coming out of your feet and stretching into the Earth. Take deep breaths in and out and do this for as long as you can, need, or want to.
- I asked the Angels for a message and they said this: “Be Present”. This is remarkable because how often to we worry or think about the future? Way too often. We are hardly ever just present in the moment and we aren’t THANKFUL and GRATEFUL in that space. It’s cliche but true when they say “The Present is a gift”. This is SUPER important to remember because when we take it moment by moment and stop worrying about things that are out of our control, that helps us remain grounded and centered in our bodies and spirits.
- Sending Light to the world. When you do see those horrible news stories, send light to that location and to the people involved. Then CUT YOUR CORDS TO IT! Don’t let it remain a part of your energy field and aura.
- Carrying on from the previous, cut your cords to any place and any person that causes you unrest and don’t be sorry about it. We as lightworkers and sensitive people often feel like we have to be the ‘listening ear’ to ever damn thing in the world and that IS NOT true! If you feel like you are being drained energetically, just walk away. It isn’t rude to put your energetic and spiritual needs FIRST! In fact, you NEED to. You’ve got this! Ask Archangels Michael and Metatron to help you with this, and then ACT on what you think, feel, hear, and see as guidance comes to you.
I really hope that this has helped you. My prayers are with all of us and the world. You’ve got this!
This is the first blog post I have written in a while, due to my crazy busy schedule and just being generally exhausted haha. But I was told to draw a card and write about it. So here it goes:
This world needs love, tolerance, and acceptance. We have suffered a huge loss this week and we can’t let this happen again. But how can we change things? What can little folks like us do to make a difference?
The card I drew is “Acceptance” from the Daily Guidance from your Angels Oracle Cards. We have GOT to start looking at others through they eyes of Angels. There is good AND evil, positive AND negative, inside all of us! We can’t escape that.
So what if people have different political views? Yes, it may be infuriating, but what if we focused on sending them positive energy instead of tearing them down, even if that’s what they do to others? Why are people so upset at one person loving another person? Does gender really matter? NO! The Bible says to pray for those who persecute you and, while the Bible and I have decided to see other people, that rings true on an energetic level as well!
When we are operating in a high vibration, we are able to see things WAY more clear. Keeping our vibrations high can be as simple as just thanking the Universe/God/Source/Whatever for what you have and showing gratitude. It could be smiling at a stranger that helps them have the courage to be nice to others and start a ripple effect.
People need us. If you are lightworker, GET TO WORK! We are here to spread love, peace, and tolerance. Get involved in causes close to your hearts. Become an advocate for what you believe in. Take a stand to let others know that they are NOT alone!
Show unconditional love to others!
That being said; unconditional love is NOT being treated like a doormat and letting people walk all over you. Also, loving yourself is just as important. You have to send love to yourself before you can send love to other people! Own how fucking amazing you are and send that energy out to others! They will begin to feel that way as well!
Go forth. Love Yourself. Love Others. Change the world!

Mostly A's -Archangel Michael
This powerful Angel is coming to you to remind you that you are safe and protected always. Archangel Michael always appears with his battle armor and sword, ready to cut away any negativity from our lives. If you answered mostly A's, take a moment to ask Archangel Michael to release you from any fears or negativity so that you can live your life purpose fully and peacefully.
Mostly B's- Archangel Raphael
Archangel Raphael is the Angel of health and healing. If you have been struggling with health or healing, call upon Raphael to help you in anyway that he can! This can mean healing you himself, or sending you down the right path to someone who can. Raphael also assists healers and those who want to help others. Another aspect of Archangel Raphael is bring a soul mate to you! So if you got mostly B's, Archangel Raphael is knocking on the door, let him in and don't be afraid to ask for his help or guidance.
Mostly C's- Archangel Gabriel
If you got mostly C's then Archangel Gabriel is the one calling out to you. Gabriel is Angel is of clear messages and communication. She helps writers, teachers, parents, and those who are trying to follow their passions. If you have been following your passions, but things just don't seem to work out, call upon Gabriel to help you see where things could change. She can open up a clear line of communication between you and your higher self to help you reach your full potential!
Mostly D's- Archangel Ariel
Mostly D's says that you have money on the brain! Archangel Ariel is the angel of finances, manifestation, and careers. There are other things about her that we will focus on in later quizzes, but this is her big thing. Ariel is considered to be the Archangel closest to earth, that's why she reigns over the monetary aspects of our lives. If you have been experiencing hardships with money or your career, ask Ariel to help you keep your mindset positive so that you can manifest financial security or a better career, if that is what you want. Never think that asking for money is bad! It is PERFECTLY fine!

Whether you are a seasoned pro at Angels like Doreen Virtue, or a complete and total novice having only heard of Angels in Church or not at all, we can all benefit from knowing how to connect with Angels in all of the many different ways that are available to us! That’s what this post is all about!
So, let’s lay some groundwork, Angels are basically messengers of God. They are extensions of Divine Energy, Light, and Love. So there is nothing to be afraid of in asking for their help. Don’t pay attention to the crazy people who claim that Angels belong to a certain belief system either, that is just B.S. Angels are nondenominational and you do NOT have to be a perfect little boy or girl for them to help you. So know that no matter who you are, or what you have done, they are ALWAYS willing to help you!
While there are literally zillions of ways to connect that are unique to each person, I am going to cover only a few.
Asking for Help
The first of these seems really easy (because it is) because it is simply ASKING! That’s right. Asking. By just asking for help, you open yourself for a multitude of heavenly hosts to sweep in and lift out of trouble. Of course, we have to know that an Angels isn’t going to come down in all of its heavenly glory and help you get out of a speeding ticket, that isn’t what they are for. Now, don’t get me wrong in saying that they WON’T help with that, they can, if you were maybe distracted or having a bad day, but not if you were intentionally speeding, as that could hurt someone else potentially. Angels aren’t that ‘Get out of Jail Free Card’ that is at your disposal day and night. They are beings that truly care for you, want to help you, and want to see you succeed and have a beautiful life!
This brings me to Free Will. The Angels can only help us if we ask, unless it is a case for Divine Intervention and they need to step in to save your life or something like that. If you are looking for a new job and are wondering why the Angels aren’t helping you, stop and ask yourself if you actually ASKED them for help. If you did, then don’t take the silence personally, they are just working for you bringing you what you desire in the right time table for Heaven. If you didn’t, then go ahead and get on that! It’s amazing that sometimes just asking for help seems like too much, like we don’t have time for it and then we wonder why things go to hell in a hand basket. Angels are standing around you at all times, Angels that are ASSIGNED to YOU and ONLY YOU, and they want to be put to work! Don’t ever think that you are asking too much of your Angels, they were made to help you!
This means that you ‘see’ the Angels clearly and that you ‘see’ the messages that they have for you. This happens in your mind’s eye, like a movie in your head. This can be a tad overwhelming for a lot of people when it first happens because you don’t know what to expect and you are worried that you are going to see something negative. i can assure you that, if you ask for protection, you won’t see anything scary. So, without getting way too deep for a ‘101’ post, You can just ask your Angels to help you be able to see them and then pay attention to what you ‘see’ when you look at other people or even when you ‘zone out’. You may start out seeing colors, and that is GREAT! This particular way to connect with your Angels is wonderful and is truly a gift! To cultivate this gift, meditate and ask your Angels to clear any residual (gross and sticky) energy from your Third Eye Chakra, located between your eyebrows. When this energy is out of whack you will notice that you have a hard time ‘seeing’ clearly. Like it’s not focused enough. For me, when I was scared of Clairvoyance, I saw lower and negative energies that were manifestations of my fear. I got rid of the fear, and haven’t seen them since! So don’t be afraid! Especially those of you who were brought up to believe that it is evil…let that belief go, breathe, and be happy! Happy ‘Seeing’!
This is when you have a very clear thought that is sent from Heaven and your Angels. This is another amazing way that the Angels will connect with you. If you are having a hard time with a project, or a job, person, or even a pet, you can ask the Angels for ideas and then be open to what you receive from them! This also works when we pray for guidance. Our prayers are often answered in the form of ideas and thoughts. So we have to make sure that we are always on our toes to receive those answers! These answers come from your Crown Chakra located at the top of your noggin. When this is balanced and in line, you are in constant communication with the Divine and you let it guide your words thoughts and actions in every way. When this particular chakra is out of whack, you are going have those negative, degrading, sad, and useless thoughts that aren’t self serving but rather are detrimental to your spirit. Like Clairvoyance, cultivating this gift can be done through meditation. Asking the Angels, once again, to remove residual energies from that Crown Chakra. There is so much to be said for Claircognizance and it’s ability to deepen your relationship with the Angels is truly profound. I feel that this gift is often glossed over when it is one of the most crucial ways of connecting with Angels, Guides, and the Divine itself!
I love this one. It is my primary sense when I connect with Angels, Departed loved ones, and other energies. This is when you hear clearly, the guidance from your Angels. This one actually took me aback when it happened the first time because I was so caught up in wanting to ‘see’ them that I didn’t much think about ‘hearing’ them! I have to say, it is amazing when you get messages this way. And all you have to do is ask your Angels to whisper to you what they want you to know. This is an particularly interesting gift because once you open yourself up to it, the Angels can be little chatter-boxes! They are always telling you what you need to do, giving you advice, and sometimes just saying ‘Hi!’. Be careful that you when you ask to connect with your Angels through Clairaudience that you are protecting your energy as well. Your Ego loves to trip you up when you begin to open yourself up to guidance from your Angels. They will never say anything negative, degrading, or hurtful to you or about you. If this happens then immediately ask that your energy, and the energy around you, be cleared.
This is the last of the “Clairs” . This is all about FEELING! When I conduct Mediumship readings and a Spirit is proud of the Client, they make me feel proud and happy! This a beautiful gift because it can literally give you hope and peace. If you are stressed out, just ask your Angels for feelings of peace and happiness. They WILL come through for you! Pay attention to everything you feel (if you are a Cancer, this is easy haha) once you ask for guidance and just let it flow through you! It’s just that simple!
One more way to connect with Angels is the one I use every single day. Tarot and Oracle Cards, Angel oriented or not, are a wonderful way to get guidance! The greatest this about this method is that it can ‘trigger’ any one, or ALL, of the gifts mentioned above! Every single person on earth has the gifts that I have talked about, it just takes practicing them! Tarot and Oracle cards have such an amazing source of inspiration for myself and millions of people. The Angels can use these as well if you let them! Sit quietly, get rid of distractions, breathe and center yourself, ask your Angels a question, shuffle the deck until you feel the need to stop, and draw a card! It is that simple! If you are interested in this method but don’t have any decks of your own, I HIGHLY suggest the Archangel Power Tarot Cards and The Archangel Oracle Cards, both by Doreen Virtue. They are AMAZING at helping you connect with your Angels!

So it's safe to say that I absolutely adore Vicky and her work at New Age Hipster! I was so happy to be able to interview her! I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!
When did you start working with Angels and how did your interest get 'peaked' in the topic?
A couple of years ago I was putting in a crystal order online and for no apparent reason whatsoever I found myself clicking the buy button on a pack of Angel cards. I actually can't even remember what was going through my mind as I did it! The cards came and I was hooked. I had them for a week and had started getting really into the energy, it was so easy to connect with! I started asking the Angels for signs and I remember finding a white feather on the couch! :O There's just no way it could have gotten there by itself. I was totally hooked from that moment on!
What Angel do you work with most often?
Archangel Michael. He's always with me. I'm pretty sure he's actually one of my guardian angels too since he never leaves my side! Archangel Raphael is around a lot too. He's super cute.
What is your process of 'tuning in' to your intution and/or the Angels?
It really depends what I'm doing. Sometimes I just whisper to myself - "Angels what do you most need me to know?" Other times I'll do a big hoo-hah with candles, visualisations, calling all the Angels in. I really think it's super important to do what works for you and what feels right. I'm always discovering new ways of tuning in! I will say that crystals definitely help me though, especially selenite!
What is the most powerful experience you have had with an Angel/God/ Goddess/Spirit?
When I first started working with Angels Archangel Raphael came to me when I was sick. It was just a head cold, but I was acting like it was man flu (I'm not very good at being sick!). I called him in and was talking to him like I was on my death bed. I felt this burst of air across my body and he just started talking to me! We had this amazing conversation about why it was part of the human experience to have a cold sometimes. He was hilarious, such a great sense of humour. We just got along so well. I also had this cool experience when I woke up one night and I know I wasn't meant to and I saw this amazing green light over my body! :O
You are currently running your business full-time, and that is AMAZING! What suggestions or tips do you have for those who are wanting to take that leap?
That it's really hard work. I had this vision of myself in fluffy slippers watching infomercials and taking the odd call, but that couldn't be further from the truth! I worked my butt off starting my biz as a side gig for ages. I worked nights and weekends while I worked full time in a really stressful job. I did 100 free readings for strangers (I'd been reading for friends for years) before I started selling my services. Running a spiritual biz isn't just about doing readings, you have to learn the business side of things too, which isn't always easy! Marketing, software, systems, finances, sales, taxes. But if you're willing to put in the time, energy and love it can be the best thing you ever do!
What hurdles did you have to get through when it came to reading for others?
The biggest thing I struggled with was confidence. My friends had been telling me for years they loved my readings, but I always thought they were just saying that because they had to! Doing 100 readings for people I didn't know really helped me with that, and I'd recommend it to anyone who isn't that confident in their ability yet, or at least do readings for donations or pretty cheap. At the end I had 98% accuracy and learned two really important lessons from the 2% and I thought that was pretty good so I started my biz!
What is your process for creating spreads?
I read intuitively so I don't always use a spread in my readings, I usually just shuffle and see in my mind's eye where the cards are going to go and what they mean. Sometimes I'll hear a number like 7 in my head and then I'll put down 7 cards and they will tell me the positions and what they mean. If I'm reading for myself I'll write it down quickly and I then test it with a few different spreads, make some alterations if needed and that's that!
What is the most used deck in your collection?
My most used Angel deck is probably Daily Messages from your Angels (my first deck!) or the Archangel Oracle cards, both by Doreen Virtue! My most used Tarot deck is the Rider Waite Smith.
What advice to do you have for those who want to work with Angels who haven't before?
It's super easy. Close your eyes right now and just say - hey angels, wanna hang out? Grab yourself a deck of cards and don't look back!

Angel Blessings guys!!!
Hey everyone! I don't know if you all knew this, but Angel Numbers are what helped me start my journey into the world of Spirituality. They provided untold amounts of support and validation when I was trying my hardest to make sense of this new world I had found. I can confidently say that, without angel numbers, I wouldn't be where I am today! So, please enjoy this beautiful graphic from ask-angels.com! I am so grateful that they shared it with me, and I hope it helps you dive into the world of messages from Angels in numbers!

"Pay attention! Angel numbers are a common way for angelic beings to send
So what are angel numbers?
Essentially, angel numbers are just numbers that keep showing up. Either
you keep seeing a certain number over and over again, or you just happen
to see a specific number or number sequence after asking for guidance and
calling for help from your angels.
Angels want to help you in your life. They want to guide you towards
greater joy, love and fulfillment.
And so the angels are bringing your attention to these numbers in hopes
that you notice them, and tune into the deeper meaning.
Seem like a roundabout way for the angels to communicate?
While angels can and will offer guidance directly, for most people this
direct guidance is filtered out by the ego mind.
So the main reason angels use numbers, signs and signals to communicate is
to bypass the ego.
Noticing numbers is simple, easy, and non-threatening for your mind.
The angels hope youll notice the number, and then look into what it means.
To help you with the second part, check out the visual guide to
interpreting angel numbers below.
With this you can easily decipher the guidance and messages your angels
are sending you through numbers.
