LIVE FREE SPIRIT CLASS
Second, I am hosting a live New Moon class on Monday. We will do some breathing exercises, a little guided meditation, and Free Spirit Oracle Card Readings.
Today I want to talk about ending 2020 feeling like a free spirit!
If you are feeling like you are not exactly where you want to be right now here are some tips to help you get there by that last week of December.
What would allow you to feel like a free spirit at the end of 2020? What would you have to do? What was your 2020 goal? Write this down.
What is one small action that you could take that would lead you to feel like a free spirit at the end of 2020? Writing a paragraph of your book? Meditating every day? These are not necessarily huge things but come up with something that will help you feel a positive shift by the end of December.
Follow the guided imagery exercise below or watch the video for the maximum effect. This exercise creates positive thoughts that in turn create positive emotions that go out into the universe and attract what you desire.
Sit up tall. Do some shoulder rolls. Take some deep breaths in and out of your nose. Roll your eyes in and up to focus on your 3rd eye.
Imagine that it is New Year’s Eve 2020 and you are feeling good. You are loving life. You are feeling like a true free spirit.
Where are you? What are you wearing? Imagine yourself.
Say the following:
Yes! Yes! I did it! I can’t believe it! I am so proud of myself!
I am so excited. This just feels so good.
I knew I had it in me. I knew I could create the shifts I want. It just took a bit of effort. It took accepting Divine guidance in my life.
I am just so happy right now. Woohoo! This just feels so amazing!
I know 2020 has been so crazy. I know I have cried. I have been in dark places and I have come back to light places. I know I am capable of shifting.
I am just so happy right now. I just feel so good. So much gratitude. Yes! Yes!
Now put your hands on your heart and say:
I am grateful for you. I am grateful for your efforts. I’m grateful for all of the guidance that I have received. I am grateful for the support of those around me.
Oh, I just love it when I focus on what is working. When I focus on feeling good. When I focus on all of the feelings that come up because they are all important.
I am important. I am worthy. I am worthy. I am worthy of feeling like a free spirit.
Take a deep breath hold it. Notice how you feel. This is available to you. This is how you create a free spirit life
Now take what you wrote down for #1 above and ask for Divine guidance. You can write it like this:
God/Angels/Universe/Spirit/Goddess/All That Is (whatever you use), thank you for your guidance around ___________(insert goal/issue/action here). I release the need to figure this out on my own. I surrender to creative possibilities.
Make this your prayer or mantra from now until the end of the year and watch your free spirit life unfold!

There is a full moon Saturday night on Halloween and here is a special way to celebrate it on a personal level.
Consider creating an ancestor altar. This is the perfect time of year to connect with those who have gone before you and the altar is something you can keep up year-round if that feels right to you.
This can be something that honors and recognizes loved ones or relatives that you have never met or both. Find a space that will be relatively undisturbed. You can add photos, favorite or seasonal flowers, bits of food, or drink that was a loved one’s favorite or is special to your family history.
If you do not have a direct connection to your family line then consider this more energetic. Put things on the altar that you love. Realize that if it is something that you love that it probably connects you to many souls that came before you.
If you do put out food remember to remove it before it gets stale or moldy. Preferably compost.
Some of you might want to connect with more ancient ways so you might like to research stones, flowers, plants, and symbols that you can adorn your altar with.
Don’t forget candles. This is the perfect way for you to spend time and connect with the energy of your altar. You can have a plain candle or choose certain scents or colors that a family member loved.
You can’t go wrong here!
If you are looking for guidance possibly ask your loved ones or ancestors to help you or for a sign.
I’ll be sharing a beer with Nana Madeline on Saturday. You can also do this in celebration of All Souls Day or Day of the Dead.
Enjoy the Full Moon energy and share with a friend who might like this ritual too. XO!
Do you love picking up the cinnamon brooms from Trader Joe’s every fall? I sure do! If you have ever wanted more ways to use those scented beauties, I am here to share a few simple rituals for your Trader Joe’s Cinnamon Broom.
These brooms come in two sizes. A mini whisk in a handheld size and a larger one that is about 3 feet tall. They both have some twine so that they can be hung.
I keep mine every year and add them to the decor in my house. I always have one behind my front door to sweep out any bad energy throughout the year and I hang my mini one on my apron hook.
First, let’s talk about the magical properties of cinnamon. Did you know that cinnamon is associated with prosperity, success, protection, healing, and spirituality?
Cinnamon helps move energy in a positive way. That bold scent you smell when you open your broom is filled with warmth and joy.
The scent of cinnamon combined with your intentions can help you create a home and life you love.
Just getting the broom and opening it up will bring the properties of cinnamon into your home.
Clearing and Blessing:
When you first get your broom, take it out of the wrapping and take a moment to really enjoy the smell of cinnamon.
Cinnamon is associated with the Sun and the element of fire. Place it in the sunlight for up to 10 minutes. This will help clear old energy and make it ready for you to use.
You can even just hold it in the sun while facing south and say:
“Sunlight, clear away any old energy on this broom.”
Now the broom is ready to be blessed and filled with your intentions.
As you hold your broom, imagine sparkly white light coming down from the cosmos entering the crown of your head, flowing down to your heart, down both arms, and into the broom.
While you are doing this, take time to imagine yourself in your home feeling prosperous, successful, healed, happy, protected, and connected to the Divine. Then say:
“I call on the Divine to bless this broom with my positive intentions. This broom is blessed and it will help bring prosperity, healing, protection, and Divine blessings to my home.“
You are now ready to go!
Before cooking, energetically sweep your counters and stovetop with your mini whisk. Allow the scent of cinnamon to fill the space and bring about feelings of abundance and healing through the food you are about to cook.
Bonus: Bless and give thanks for your food while cooking and before eating.
Home Clearing & Protection:
Did you know that people used to place a broom above their front door for home protection? If you don’t feel like doing that, try this ritual.
You will first set the intention to clear your home of stuck, challenging, and stagnant energy. Then you will energetically sweep (meaning the bristles don’t touch the floor) your home towards the front door. Then open the door and sweep all that energy out.
Then imagine your house being filled with and surrounded by golden white light and the smell of cinnamon.
Tap into your positive emotions and say:
“My home is filled with positive intentions, prosperity, healing, and Divine blessings. My home is surrounded by golden white light in which only love remains and through which only love may enter.”
Bonus: Imagine angels surrounding and guarding your home.
You can also use either size broom to clear your space before doing rituals, yoga, praying, journaling, meditating, reading tarot, or oracle cards.
It is also nice to give an energetic sweep after having people or workers in your home.
During October, your broom can be a part of your Halloween decorations. The scent of cinnamon fades over time and the brooms can become part of your home decor for the rest of the year.
You can hang it on the wall and embellish it with dried flowers, beads, colorful ribbon, charms, bells, feathers, crystals, etc. You can change these add-ons seasonally too. So fun!
Did you know that Deverra is the Goddess of Purifying and is associated with the broom? In Ancient Roman times, an area would be swept before a ritual or celebration to purify and cleanse the area. Brooms were thought to clear out the darkness and allow in the light.
She is considered the protector of midwives and women in labor. Her name comes from the Latin word Deverro which means to sweep.
Did you know that St. Martin de Porres of Lima, Peru is the Saint of the Broom for his devotion to his work no matter how menial it was?
He is also the patron saint of persons of mixed race and of those who suffer from discrimination.
Intention combined with nature and a connection to the divine can make your life flow. Enjoy using these rituals to help you tap into the energetic properties of cinnamon, sweep away old, challenging energy, and bring prosperity and healing into your life!
