The Adventures of the Solar Eclipse 2017

There was much hype and excitement recently over the eclipse of the sun which took place on Monday, August 21, 2017 over the United States.  A narrow band of totality of the eclipse where people would be place into darkness as the moon complete hid the sun for a brief period of time stretched from Oregon to South Carolina.  

We are in Kentucky and the southwestern part of this state stretching into Tennessee would also be witness to the relatively rare occurrence.   Crowds of people flock to this band of totality including myself the day of the eclipse.

Yes it was very cool.  The moon was halfway across the sun when the light of the day began to dim;

 it was a weird half light.  The temperature dropped and the clouds moved away; the winds died down.  

We don’t realize how much the weather is affected by the sun until this type of event.

The really cool part was when the sun was totally covered by the moon and suddenly we were pitched into darkness — although not total darkness.  The sky was dark as it would be just as the stars would be coming out.  We didn’t see stars–but we did see a planet (probably Venus — known as the evening star).  We got to experience the crickets getting louder as they would at nighttime.  In the park where we were at, in Ashland City, TN, 20 miles from Nashville, we looked up during the entire event with our special glasses, handed out by the very kind local fire department.  

In less than 2 minutes, it was over.  Suddenly the moon moved away and a sliver of light shined down upon us.  It was only sliver and yet it was like the curtain which had just fallen and was once again raised and there was light!!!

A very cool sensation and lots of emotions that rang spiritual went through my mind.  It only takes a sliver of light to shine and create light everywhere!

I personally basked in the afterglow, as the day became lighter once again. And hotter; fortunately the winds picked up again.  

We stayed and enjoyed the sights and sounds of nature as the throngs of travelers who had come to the park to witness this two minute event began making their way homewards.  For these hardy souls who were about to face the traffic jam of their lives, this event was over.  

Others of us stayed and meditated after the eclipse.  I received some personal insights and a sense of peace and it’s going to be OK.  Which it usually is when I let it.

My guides told me that some people will continue to feel the after effects, which could be anything from tiredness to headaches to unease to up tightness to….well pretty much what we felt before the eclipse.  But these would settle out in a few days.  Balance would come when they let it come back.  I was instructed by the Team to post on Facebook (FB/theangelicpath) a prayer of balance, which I did.  

So now that it’s all over–now what?  Was there any deeper meaning to this event beyond the astronomical ramifications?  And does the next eclipse coming in 2024 have any significance?  

We’ll be talking about all of this in upcoming posts (Wednesdays) and on Facebook posts and our Live FB show, Angelic Wisdom, as well in our newsletter.  

The future is what we make of it; but these events can be points of interest along the way.  Stay tuned and in the meantime, enjoy the ride!

Until next time!

A New Year is Upon Us

The Angelic Path
The New Year is almost here!

2017 is upon us.  In just a few short days a new year will be here.  Numerological speaking it’s a “1” year for all – 2 +0+1+7=10; cross out the zero and you have “1”.  What does this mean?

“One” years are foundations for things to come over the next 10 years and new beginnings.  The old falls away and the new begins to take shape.

So what will the new year bring? In America, as well as many places around the world, new and different types of leaders are ushering in new and different types of leadership.  For those who can tolerate the changes, or even welcome those changes, this time can be very exciting.  For those who do not trust their leadership, this type can be upsetting, confusing, frustrating and a host of negatively charged vibrations and emotions.

How people react to the world around them will always set up their own emotional patterns and set the tone for any year.  For this upcoming year, the energies are added to by the new beginnings energies.  One should have this in their mind going forward. 

Change can be difficult for many and yet so many have asked for change.  New beginnings energies enhance 

The world is changing.

this change for new beginnings in and of itself are change.  So this upcoming year will be a year full of changes.

It will be doubly important for humans to take care of themselves physically, emotional and spiritual as a result of all of the new energies that swirl around.  It is best to separate yourselves from those that refuse to stop rocking the boat – not only globally but as local as your own personal life.

The more peace you allow into your life and purposeful intent, the better off you will be.

This means separating yourself from news stories that can and will upset you; remaining diligent in your own intentions, personal vows and aspirations and doubly down on being with people who uplift you  and situations that make your heart sing.

Reading biographies (or watching movies or inspirational TV or YouTube shows) on people who have come through adverse times and struggles may help you understand what change is all about.  Support groups may also help, as long as they are constructive and not destructive. Reading spiritual material and following spiritual people that resonate with you can also be helpful. 

It’s time to let go old energies including toxic people, jobs and other situations that do not lift your spirits, but degrade them.  Begin easing toxic and negative people out of your life by blessing them and sending them mentally on their way.  Ask Archangel Michael to cut their cords from you. 

The economy is now better for many; time to get additional training and/or schooling; re-edit your resume and start looking for new opportunities, if your job is toxic or not fulfilling.  Just switching jobs may help you in the long run, if your place is too toxic.  Remember in today’s current economy long-term jobs are a thing of the past.  Aim for short-term if you must or try your hand at entrepreneurship.  There are plenty of online and local community college courses business courses that you can take, that cost next to nothing.  Ask others how they got started for free advice.  People love to talk about themselves and what they do –take advantage of this pleasant fact. 

2017 is a year of new beginnings and new opportunities.  Avail yourself of the knowledge and opportunities out there.  Begin a new year journal and jot down daily your intentions, activities, reactions to previous day’s events and what you are looking forward to. 

You’ve heard every January that “This is Your Year”….but truly this is your year of “1” with new beginnings, new information and new activities.   Watch for your expectations to begin to manifest in your life in new, pleasantly unexpected ways – and as always, ask your angels for help, any time and in almost any way.  You simply have to ask and then look for the signs as newness appears before you.

Happy New Year!!!

With Love and Light Always,

Happy New Year – 2015!

Happy New Year !!  Welcome 2015!!

Let us bring in the New Year with renewed spirit of hopefulness and illumination! The world continues to change day by day. We are in the dawn of a cycle of life, love and the pursuit of happiness.  With any cycle there will be much exploration, some chaos and much debate throughout the year. Life if what we make it no matter what the calendar says. The Universe is alNew Yearways listening to you and your intentions.  You do create your own reality.

Now is the time to examine your life and figure out where you want to be this time a year from now. Do you want to be healthier? Have more money in the bank? Have a better love life? Gain a better job? What do you intent for your life to look like a year from now?

How about just settling for being happier all around?!

Everyday you are ‘ascending’ towards your own chosen destiny and fate. You chose whether to go the high road or low road–to ascend or to descend. You do so by every action, thought and deed you have.

What actions, thoughts and deeds will you perform this year? How will they serve you towards your intentions?

Keeping a journal helps with your spiritual journey. It can help keep you on course and see where you strayed.  Don’t beat yourself up if you stray — just adjust your sail and continue on the course that makes you the happiest and most fulfilled.

2015 is a new year of promise, hope and light. We here at Illuminated Engagements Centre for Whole Being wish you the happiest of New Years and the brightest hope for your beginning in the New Era.

Time to Adjust the Sails
Photo by Blake Cahoon

Don’t you love January?  It’s a time of renewed energy and beginnings for most of us as we usher in a new year.  It’s a time of reflection about what happened in the previous year.  It allows us to gauge how far we’ve come and allows us to aim for new horizons.

This year in the Midwest we’ve had several challenges —we had the polar vortex come down and put us into a deep freeze (don’t you love these new-fangled terms that the media gives us??) and on a personally level, I’ve had a cold/flu for the last several weeks (the reason why I missed 2 weeks of blogs!) I’m hoping this crazy type of weather and bout of bad health isn’t indicative of what the new year is planning on bringing—how that for pessimism?

Say what??  Blake is being pessimistic.  That isn’t like her!

Okay, so I’m using that phrase as an example.  Whatever your current situation is—you can change it.  I have several situations that I want to change currently and I’m working on each one of them.  How?

To begin with, I wake up each morning with a prayer of appreciation and gratitude and then I set my intentions –a short list of what I generally would like to accomplish that day.  It helps me set the tone and mood for the day.  I also state that intent to have a good attitude about the day.

This simple exercise done in a thirty second space when I’m stretching and yawning my way to my feet, as I roll out of bed, helps me deliver the goods each and every day.  I end the day with another prayer of appreciation and gratitude; appreciating what I did accomplish that day without focusing on what I didn’t accomplish.

Law of attraction tells us that we have to focus on what we want and not what we don’t want.  Easy said than done.  So one aspect of the law of attraction that we’ll be looking at this year.

2014 is a year of refocusing, realigning and readjusting, the Divine Guidance Team tells me.  2012 started a movement, 2013 shook the place up and now we’re settling down with a renewed aim.  We’ll be exploring more of this new energy coming in as we continue into 2014.

We’ll be providing you with new tools and offerings to help you realign your energies, renew your focus and readjust your sails to move into the space you desire to go.  Come journey with us and discover your new worlds!

3 Things to Do to Overcome Chaos

the-crystal-ball-WaterhouseHow did you manage to deal with 2013?
How can you overcome the chaos?
How has The Shift of 2012 affected you?

About 15 years ago, I managed to get a job as a computer analyst because the US government was nervous about the use of computers in the work place, especially for highly regulated manufacturing industries such as pharmaceutical companies.  Believe or not, the use of computers versus paper was once looked on with distrust.  As a result, there was a mass effort to high people with certain skill sets and train them to do with the enormous amount of regulations and paperwork needed at the time.  As it turned out, I had the proper skill set and fell right into place in this lucrative position.

That huge pile of regulations over time shrank as computers became more common place and finally business couldn’t live without them.  Now all those regulations came down to a 3 page document –a list of requirements and regulations needed if your computer system fell into a specific category—now something more rare than not.

It took time to go from frantic over regulation and in turn chaos, to a calmer place to now a relaxed way of doing business.  The processes and the attitudes of the regulations and new systems changed over time.

I bring this up, at the this time of year, because last year on December 21, 2012, light workers across the globe were being readied for SOMETHING BIG to happen on that pivotal day. 

Next week will be the 1 year anniversary of that date.   Since then many light workers have felt everything from nothing to nausea to joy to impatience to frustration to….well, you get the picture.  They have simply been all over the place in the lives.  We have dubbed this time period The Shift – because indeed it is a time of shifting changes—almost like blowing sands—going one direction one moment and another direction the next.

Personally we have experienced this activity going on for most of 2013.  It finally began to settle around the time of the fall equinox, when many have reported that celestial calmness finally came into play.

I know of many others whose lives have changed drastically this year.  Many have made their transition during this year or experienced someone else’s transition (death), many have lost or found jobs, moved, got married or divorced, started businesses or lost businesses.  Overall it wasn’t a particular non-active year for most of us.  We are in the midst of a shifting time which may bring chaos with it.  Just like many experienced about 15 years ago with changing technology and the regulations that went with it.  And just as that experience for those companies shifted with time, so shall our Shift.  As time goes on, the chaos will diminish and we will have better processes in place to deal with changing times. 

What can you do to help alleviate the chaos in the meantime?

  1. Turn off the news.  It’s not serving you well if you continually listen to and worry about what is happening outside of your own walls.  The same situations that are being played out in a dramatic daily fashion have been going on for thousands of years.  Countries fight, people die and politicians argue.  Unpopular laws are passed.  People lose money.  People make money.

Live your life outside of this daily drama.  Instead listen to happy music or neutral information.  Watch fun TV, not violent or drama that may stress you out. 


2.  Lighten Up.  You’re called a light worker because that is where you keep your energy –towards the lighter, more positive side of life.  Laugh more often.  Smile more often.  Give more often. You will be rewarded and you may make someone’s day.  The power of smiling and giving is tremendous.  And don’t forget to be good to yourself too!


3.   Ask the Angels for Help.  They can’t help you if you don’t ask.  And their job is to help you.  We forget to ask during the course of our busy day—but they get bored when we don’t ask.  They are there to help you lighten the load.  Ask for the small things or the big things—they can handle it all!  And you only pay with a positive asking and intent!  Otherwise all this help is Free!!!  So ask!

Next year the chaos will be less than this year.  More processes are being put into place; more results are being played out in a more positive manner.  Keep the faith and keep smiling.  Hold the Light and follow it.  You are making a difference, even when swirling changes are all around you.  Hold steady in the storm and keep the umbrella by you, for when you need it. 

Our world is changing –the direction it turns in is up to you.  Keep the positive going and the world will follow suit.  Or if you live in fear and chaos, your world will reflect those fears and provide more chaos for you.  If we all pull our own weight in being positive, the world will become a place not of chaos but enlightenment and wise knowing.
