It always rubs me the wrong way when I hear of someone body shaming another person. Even more so it rubs me the wrong way when I hear someone body shaming themselves not only in my presence, but in general period. I don’t want to hear that. Love all of yourself. Love and appreciate your bodies no matter what anyone says. Don’t compare yourselves or your bodies to other people. Everyone is uniquely beautiful. Everyone is beautiful period.
These men pose nude to promote male body positivity. While I know that women face this kind of outlandish scrutiny, but men of today do as well too, more than some realize.
One man says, “Up until recently, I couldn’t go swimming without wearing a t-shirt. I would never bare all in public. Not even shorts.”
These men spoke up about their body issues after they participated in a nude photo shoot to challenge “six-pack” culture.
Another man says, “I just don’t like my body, personally. You just look at other things, the way society is right now, you’re completely bombarded with Channing Tatum’s and Brad Pitts.”
The shoot was part of Alternative Fashion Fest. A fashion show that showcases diverse beauty. The organizers noticed a lack of awareness for men suffering from body anxieties.
Another guy says, “People seem to think it’s okay to tell me I’m too thin. So they’ll always comment about like, “Where’s your bum?”
The photos will be turned into a calendar and sold with ALL profits going to a mental health charity. Roll the brief clip on what they have to say:
A teenager punk rocking drug user covered in tattoos might make one believe they have no purpose, but don’t be fooled by their choices or form of personal self-expression at first glance. Strip away the external costume one chooses to wear this lifetime to see the truth. Eradicate the labels burdened upon oneself such as black, white, gay, straight, male, female, liberal, conservative, and so on.
Labeling confines you to a box and gives the illusion you have an identity, but when you limit and restrict yourself with a label, then you risk losing your soul’s uniqueness. One of the goals of the human ego is to repress, limit, impede, and hold you down. It throws you in the passenger seat with blinders on and drives you over dangerous roads with speed bumps and traffic spikes. In that space, you’re unable to penetrate through any surface intended to expose reality.
To one extent a label needs to be used to give someone a deeper understanding of something when they’re unable to come to that conclusion through telepathy, but you are not the labels you use to describe yourself in the end. The intention of labels is to divide and create separation. It compartmentalizes others into divisions not aligned with any soul’s existence. You lose authentic identity with a label since brands simultaneously give the illusion of a special uniqueness, but you don’t need a label to be exceptional because everyone’s light shines when stripped of the outdated labels that ultimately break down and destroy who your soul is in truth.
Individuality is evident without the need to distract through exclusions and groupings. Classifying others and forcing them into boxes creates unhealthy competition to one up each other and prove your group is the exceptional one. Once you do that, then you’ve handed the steering wheel to the ego. There is no synchronization when you are out of alignment of your most indisputable self.
Back home all souls live in harmony regardless of being distinctive from one another. It’s not on their radar to point out differences because eccentricity is honored and encouraged. Whereas on Earth the dissimilarities are shunned or feared because it makes the ego uncomfortable preferring that everyone be a clone. Stand out without hiding behind limitations and imperfections. Who are you without any of these outdated fads and labels you use to describe yourself?
One of the top common questions I receive from others surround others being frustrated in not being able to connect with their guide and angel.
When it feels like your connection with Spirit is non-existent where you’re not picking up on anything, then that’s typically a sign that you’re too weighed down or distracted by physical and external matters or desires. If you’re experiencing any form of negativity whether in emotions or thought processes, then that’s a block. Being mired in any of kind of physical distraction will temporarily dim or cut off the communication line with the other side. It makes it seem as if you’re not picking up on anything or you’re being ignored, which is never true because Spirit is always communicating with you regardless if you can hear them or not.
The Spirit communication gradually opens up when you start releasing and letting go of those distractions and negative feelings and thoughts. If you’re not hearing messages or guidance, then look around and take note of what’s bothering you or distracting you in the physical world, and release it. The answer as to what is creating the block is usually right in front of you. If you have more than one issue bothering you, then you have to let it all go one by one in order to allow the communication to come rushing in.
Sometimes your ego can deceive you into believing that you’re not blocked, such as the rush you get from gossip or absorbing negative media and swimming with it. The rush is deceptive because it’s also the same rush high you get from drugs, alcohol, food, etc. But soon that rush causes you to crash back down and you’re out in search of that quick fix again. That also creates a block with Spirit communication. Pushing for an answer will also block incoming messages and guidance, and so will anything connected to fear. Psychic communication hits come in when you’re in a calm non-judgmental uplifting state and you let go and let God.
The current message is to realize how much strength you have within you for access, even you don’t believe it’s there. You know you have immense strength when you can endure a difficult circumstance and you still manage to move through it with finesse by running over that roadblock, resolving it, and then letting it go to move onto other things.
One of the top adjectives darted my way over the course of my life from others in-person is the word strong. “God you’re so strong.” “Wow you are really strong.” “You are way too strong.” “How are you so strong?”
I don’t know where they’re drawing this conclusion from, but I’ve always been a fighter by nature, which is part of the Wise One lineage among other things. It’s part of the warrior nature to be primed for battle no matter what, and that stance can make one come off strong by comparison to someone else. I gather repeated strength from above every single day. There has never been a day that has gone by where I’m not in constant communication. This strength is the fuel for the vehicle that drives me.
The universal message now is to keep going. Gather strength from above and use that to persevere forward. Other than your team in Heaven, in the end you are the only one you can count on and rely on. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and be the manager of your life controlling who and what is allowed in your vicinity.
Release that which has been delaying you and holding you back from positive progress. You likely already know what you need to let go of, but are procrastinating out of fear or indecision. It is anything or anyone that brings you down or prompts you to experience consistent inadequate feelings such as depression, anger or stress. This also includes foods and substances that are not good for you and cause your body to react negatively such as giving you low energy or irritability. This delays you from taking positive action and in moving forward. Release anything negative so that you can truly be free and soar upwards to where your higher self lives. When you release negative stuff, then you are on your way to obtaining your dreams. Your dreams come true as a result of this release, but you have to do the work. You have to release negative thoughts, patterns, lifestyle choices and people.
The Full Moon transit which happens once a month is a great time for releasing, re-aligning and then manifesting (positively – so watch your thoughts!) Many use the night of the Full Moon to release that which no longer serves them or their higher self. Release anything or anyone that you know is toxic and causes you to experience uncomfortable feelings. The energy of the Full Moon is potent, intense, and powerful. It brings up all sorts of feelings and thoughts. It has the power to magnify and direct your energy in large ways. This is why it is important to be crystal-clear with your thoughts in general, and especially on the night of the Full Moon.
Simply having intention can make this release happen efficiently. One way is by meditating or gazing upon the Full Moon for 5-15 minutes. Take a deep breath in, exhale, and repeat until you are fully relaxed. Breathe in and connect with the Moon so that you are one with it. You can do this longer than 15 minutes if you choose. Sitting underneath the Full Moon outside in order to make contact with you is even better. Sometimes this is not realistic if it is a cloudy or rainy night, but as long as the intention is there is all that matters. Mentally visualize what you would like to remove from your life. Follow that with what you would like to see come to fruition. This brings in your Spirit team by your side notating the work you are putting in to make healthy life changes.
Archangel Haniel is the hierarchy angel who you can benefit from working with. Ask her to be with you through this Full Moon releasing process. She awakens your third eye chakra which opens up clairvoyance.

It’s been an extremely transformational year for so many around the globe on a personal level. In January, we saw the end of a cycle and the end of another chapter. Many were dancing in the noise of endless gossip in 2016, which changed absolutely nothing by the way as I had repeatedly informed that it wouldn’t. All it did was create more division, drama, and separation.
I was non-stop busy in high octane mode in healthy positive expression wrapping up an incredibly productive creative year in 2016 with back to back projects.
January was closing the chapter of the previous cycle in preparation for the next, but there is a transition that has to take place before the next chapter starts.
In February, the world went dark with the goal of pushing you to re-evaluate your connections, your work, your souls path, where you’re at personally, where you plan to go, what changes you’d like to make in your life that will bring you more peace, more love, and more serenity now.
When we moved into March, the submarine you’re gliding on traveled down into the deepest darkest depths of consciousness. In that space, you might have faced uncomfortable fears, turmoil, and anxiety.
By April, the energies had become so reckless and erratic giving you hints at what parts of your life need to be adjusted internally and externally. It’s been three months of stand still prompting you to be more introspective than usual surrounding all of these things. Now that we’re sitting at the bottom of the ocean floor, it’s time to prep yourself for lift off. We’ve been in that transition since February, which started the process of moving ones consciousness within and facing the truth, the demons, the anxieties. Looking at extricating anything negative.
The erratic intense emotions that rise up during a heavy Retrograde period are either self-generated or coming from other people in your vicinity. The biggest culprit offenders tend to come from those who don’t understand what a Retrograde is, or they might not understand the effects of the Retrograde energy in general, and how to navigate through it. When everything is blowing up in their life and they’re reacting harshly to it, they don’t know to say, “Okay, this is obviously retrograde driven, I need to take a step back.”
Someone who doesn’t understand it, doesn’t know about it, or doesn’t believe in any of it, then they are typically the ones that are darting their misguided anger and criticisms outwardly onto others. That has more to do with the turbulent emotions they’re battling with inside rather than external forces. It’s like someone who is experiencing unhappiness and negative feelings during a moment in their life. Rather than taking an overdue time out, break, quiet time, or retreat, they instead take it out on those around them. There’s that funny saying where someone says, “When I’m in a bad mood, I can’t wait to spread it around!”
In the coming weeks and months, gradual movement upwards will begin for the first time this year. Notice the areas of your life that have needed to be examined and altered. Make a pact to take action and move forward with a new outlook and perspective. Go after the goals you’ve been thinking about this year, but have felt held back by challenges.
It’ll still be a bit bumpy in the coming days and weeks, but the worst is over.
The road ahead is clearing up and clarity will seep through wiping away any confusion energy you’ve been mired in. Stay focused and pay attention to the repeated nudges coming in from above urging you to make healthy life changes so you can have more energy and motivation to apply to your life purpose with a clear mind and renewed optimistic outlook. Receive those gifts in the right spirit.
After this week, things are gonna finally lighten up for a lot of people gradually into the Summer. The last three months have seen an enormous hit professionally and personally for so many people. And that’s because perspectives need to change and be awakened. Things were no longer working, so forced change needs to happen. And part of that requires a clearing. Releasing. Looking at circumstances ahead in a brighter light as we prepare for the beautiful changes coming up.
I’ve more or less been in a cocoon again the last several months, which for me happens every so often only to re-emerge in another Phoenix form.
It’s been an introspective time on a broader level.
I do try to warn others and some take it seriously and are put on alert, while others don’t, and ignore it, and brush it off. The ones that don’t are the ones I discover that end up getting knocked down hard by going against what I said. They end up having to take the long way around.
It has been a huge tornado whirlwind of erratic energies lately. I know this from the constant observation of my surroundings, the repeated messages and guidance I’m receiving, as well as the confirmation from so many people writing to me with their current issues, which all seem to be related to one another. The last three months should have spent with a lot of re-evaluating and making changes to implement now as we move forward into the a new light.
This special New Moon happening Wednesday brings on a fresh brighter energy of change and new beginnings. The New Moon happens once a month, but what makes this one more distinct is that April has been a trying a month due to the several planetary retrograde shifts taking place. It’s made life in general feel listless and inactive. Forward movement has been near impossible, and when any advancing strides have been forged or attempted, it’s only been met with delays, challenges, or regrets.
The New Moon this week injects a healthy jolt of optimism to a month that has been lethargic. It will be short lived as the moon phases felt shift every 3 to 5 days, but still it will give a nice welcomed boost that would be much more trying without it. Mercury is still retrograde for another week, so it may be challenging getting things off the ground as it moves through its critical ending phase, but the New Moon will bring in some sliver lights of clarity into the fog bank that has enveloped the planet recently.
The positives of a Mercury Retrograde is that it brings on revelations through forced introspection. The New Moon will help crack that wide open. Its energy will add a gentle ease to things as Mercury switches direction next week. Life is typically more erratic than usual when a planet switches direction, so the New Moon will smooth out some of the rougher edges.
The New Moon is soaring through the sign of Taurus. The energy of the Taurus in general are security and stability driven. They need to feel comfortable or it’s not going to happen. When it does happen, they are capable of great success, but they still move cautiously and methodically on their own slow plodding pace. This means the New Moon energy that is present will be on the subtle end, while lending a grounding force to emotions or feelings that have been unstable lately.
Add to that Mercury Retrograde energy, and you have a double dose of slow moving progress upwards, but the key word is progress. Progress is being made pending you help it along, set new positive intentions involving the changes you plan on making in your life next month, and prepare to put them into action as we move into May, which will be a much lighter and clearer month than April.

Stuck in a job that sucks up your time, energy, and is bathed in toxins? Raising your vibration is necessary.
There are a great many talented healers and artists out there contributing positive work and efforts towards humanity and their life purpose, but sadly and unfortunately many of them are working at a “day job” on the side that they dislike. They are stuck in jobs that suck up their time and energy making it challenging to pursue their true passion and make a decent living out of it.
What makes that feeling worse is that an enormous amount of these day jobs lower their morale because they’re also bathed in toxic energy with souls who are disconnected from spirit and the bigger picture. As a sensitive this can be exceptionally taxing on your system, but this is wearing on anyone regardless if they are in tune or not. Being aware of what’s greater than your physical body makes it more depressing to be in Earthly set ups that bring you permanently down.
If you’re in this kind of a situation, then you are aware that a high percentage of your time is connected to this day job on some level even when you’re not at work. This stalls many talented people from working towards what they want to do with their life in the long run. They soon give up and lose faith believing that the Universe is working against them and that they’re just not as lucky in the way that others are. Don’t give up on the account of someone else. I know it’s tough at times, but keep going, you can do it.
One man told me that when he’s not at work he’s sometimes having dreams at night that involves his place of employment and with his colleagues. This job is embedded deeply into his consciousness and it’s not even a job he likes all that much, but he’s always there which means there isn’t enough balance of personal and professional time. Most of his days are spent at his job. This is not entirely his fault as that’s the way the current break-your-back mentality mindset of human physical life is at this time in history. Most jobs require you to be in the office full time which is currently set to “five days a week – nine hours a day”, depending on what city or country you reside in. This time devoted to your job doesn’t include the getting ready for work and driving to and from your place of employment either. The current work force is outdated and is been decades long overdue for a major overhaul and change.
When you’re asleep and having dreams about your job, then that’s a problem. Your energy is too mired and infiltrated into something that doesn’t mean that much to you. You’re not at work and you’re still thinking about it!
It takes a warrior like effort to not allow this job to kill your life force and prevent you from working on your passion and life purpose. There are a great many success stories out there throughout history from people who were in the same situation you’re currently struggling in, but they kept working hard on what they desired on the side during their down time, and eventually they transitioned out of that day job and into full time work doing what they love.
Keep forging on ahead fearlessly and making a personal pact to contribute a little bit of what you love towards your lifelong goals each day for a minimum of thirty minutes to an hour. Whether that hour is used to read and research on your areas of interest, or you devote something positive towards what will ultimately be your life purpose income, such as creating a website, a social media page, postcards, etc.
You might complain you’re too tired or don’t have enough time or energy to contribute up to an hour a day into what could potentially be your full-time job. This is a dilemma and a block for you, but if this is work you truly love, then it doesn’t feel like work. It’s something you enjoy doing, so working on it is rarely a problem. When someone cheerfully wants to do something, they’ll do it no matter how tired they are. In fact, putting in work on your passion and love gives you a positive lift, a boost, and raises your vibration. All of which are ingredients for incoming abundance.
Raising your vibration is a crucial element in giving you greater energy and a brighter mood. This encourages you to make the time to contribute what you love. Even after a long day at work at your day job, when you have more energy, then that’s energy to help push you to contribute towards work that you love.
The reason you’re exhausted at the end of each day is not because work is so tough at your day job, but it’s because this day job does not excite you on any level. It sucks the life force right out of you, which means it’s also sucking the energy right out of you.
I’ve found that when I’m doing what I love, the energy keeps going beyond twelve hours where I don’t want to stop. It’s a perpetual rushed excited high because I’m doing what I love that it doesn’t feel like work. It’s fun and I’m getting paid for it too! On top of that, I’m being extra careful with what I put in my system. You know that if you have a glass of wine or a beer in the middle of the day, then you’re unlikely to put in any work into what you love. Keeping your energy high and motivated on those days that you want to work on your life purpose require taking care of all aspects of your body, mind, and soul.
My book, “Raising Your Vibration”, is an easy read crash course guide of motivational essays, reminders, examples, suggestions, and words from myself along with my Spirit team to help inspire you to stay on your path and live more optimistic today.

It is safe to move forward with love! Take the lessons you’ve learned and gained in the last six weeks and incorporate them into the new you as we move forward out of the Venus Retrograde transit that put a harsh spotlight on relationships, beauty, and money concerns.
After this weekend, it is safe to implement action in terms of those areas that have remained stagnant since the start of March. It will also be safe to approach that soul mate love interest you’ve had your eye on and see where it leads, as well as leave connections that no longer have a purpose.
I’ve witnessed and listened to accounts of endless relationships abruptly breaking apart over the last month and a half. My in-box tends to flood over more than usual during crucial Planetary transits, so I have an up close and personal view of how this affects so many people at once.
Circumstances may still be a little sketchy here and there over the next week or two as Venus levels out, but we are also in the depths of the Mercury Retrograde until May 1st. It is okay to end those relationships that have met their goal, fulfilled their purpose, or have been dead in the dirt for some time, but proceed with caution until May, or just wait it out a few more weeks to see how you feel.
I never advise anyone to leave someone during a Venus Retrograde no matter how anxious they are to do it, and they will be anxious as that’s a side effect of the transit. It’s best to hold off and wait until Venus moves direct as your perception clears up at that point, and you’re much calmer and focused about it.
I was climbing up with my phone strapped to me. The camera took this shot without me realizing it. Didn’t see it until later in the camera roll. Never saw the cross while there. Wasn’t paying attention. Not the first time the Christ energy has been revealed to me in interesting look at me ways. You can tell cause if I was taking the shot, I would’ve at least aimed it correctly and centered it. The big JC always appears during times of high anxiety, chaos, sandstorms. All of which bounce off the charts especially during a Full Moon.
I’ve always had a strong connection with Jesus Christ. When I’ve said that some flinch uncomfortably. This is because they automatically associate his name with something negative due to horribly some of his alleged followers have behaved with others. I can assure you that they be his followers, but know nothing about him. It is unfortunate they’ve naively caused others to turn away from him simply because of their poor judgmental behavior. I know Christ. I’ve had a long running relationship with him that has endured lifetimes. He is nothing what some claim him to be.
