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!

Changes: We’re Changing Our Name!!

Illuminated Engagements
We’re changing our name to: The Angelic Path


Someone once told me the only constant is change.  I didn’t know what they meant when I was 20 years old; I do now many years later!  We can fear change or embrace it!   I tend to embrace change these days!

Last week when getting together with friends who are also business advice contributors, along with my own divine business team, the topic of our business name: Illuminated Engagements Centre for Whole Being  was discussed with the conclusion that it needed to be changed.  One: it’s a mouthful and two: it doesn’t truly describe adequately what we do and three: it sounds too formal and business like.  Which may be the reason the business isn’t quite where it needs to be these days.

So we tapped into the Divine Guidance Team and our other celestial friends, and asked their opinion and the name: Angelic Path came up, along with several other similar names.  After further meditation,and asking our Facebook friends to chime in, and checking which domain names were available, the decision was made.  The new name is: The Angelic Path  (   And thus our name is being changed!!!

We are building a new website with this new domain name ( but it going to take some time to get it in shape.  We also plan to change the name of our Facebook page  (FB has to grant permission for this.)

All this is taking place as we’re launching our latest Soul Sound Healing angelic meditation audio recording and our offerings to you!  We’re busy here!!!

Over the next few weeks you will be seeing the various changes occurring to our websites and Facebook page, YouTube channel, Pinterest and our other social media sites.  Fortunately our Twitter and Instagram accounts have my name (Blake Cahoon) attached to them.

So watch for our new changes!!!  It’s an exciting time for us!

So this blog isn’t a totally announcement, we’ve dug up an older Message from the Divine Guidance Team that talks about changes.  Thought it was interesting, so I’ve included below!   Enjoy and thank you for your continued support of The Angelic Path (formerly known as Illuminated Engagements).

Message from Divine Guidance Team-Feb 2014

So many of you have been talking about BIG CHANGES (capitalization intentional) coming into 2014.

Of course, you just should have gone through your BIG CHANGES when 2012 came along and rolled into an often chaotic 2013.  Now we hear from our channel and others that more BIG CHANGES are supposedly coming into play.

We would like to correct this: the BIG CHANGES or what we have been calling The Shift…is still on-going and will of course bring continued, repeated changes to you and to what your world looked like about 70 years ago or about the time of the end of World War II to early 1960’s.

Of course, really, you and your world are always changing and growing and evolving.  You really have been speeding up some the progress since after your Civil War when new inventions began showing up and brought you into the Industrial Age.  Someone from the mid-1700 would say that BIG CHANGES were occurring as America came into being.  Can we say Revolutionary War, anyone?

Illuminated Engagements
Change is a way of Life

The fact is your world is always in motion and moving forward with progress and growth.  This is part of what your Earth reality is all about.  You came here to experience contrast and evolve as a human being through the effective use of this contrast.  So you want to always have changes coming into your life.  But it is how you respond to those contrasting situations and changes that is the key to a happy and fulfilled life or a life filled with misery and drama.  Often you don’t realize how to purport effective use of contrast.

So we want to tell you to ignore all of those soothsayers that say BIG CHANGES are coming—because they are already here and are ongoing.  Yes, your world is going through a shifting, but that was foretold and is just part of the bigger picture.  How are you responding to the shifting paradigms?

As free will beings, you can always look at life through rose colored glasses, shades of gray or have rainbows in your life.  Rainbows come after rain and storms.  You might try to realize this and not berate the storms so much.

Remember to not get so caught up with all the minutiae of the day that you forget the Big Picture.  Don’t let media storms, news cycles and other informational resources toss you along spiritual high winds. Don’t let others get you down or overwhelm you.  You are the one that is creating your world. You can live the life you want – one of purpose and fulfillment and validation.

So don’t buy into the Chicken Little mentality of the current news cycle or media sources.  Instead remember you have the ability to choose your world through your emotions and actions.  What you send out into the world, will come back to you.  Remember to send out what you want out of life then, and not what you don’t want in your life.  This principal has been in place since the beginning and by whatever name you want to call it, it isn’t changing.

Remember to smile daily, laugh often and give to yourself as you would give to others.  (Yes, you read that right.  Think about it and then get back to us.)

Then you’re on the path of true change and that the only path you need to be on—your own.

With Much Love and Light Always,

The Divine Guidance Team

New Information from the Team

Don’t you love when the Divine Guidance Team speaks to us directly?
Are you ready for the next part of the roller coaster ride?
The Divine Guidance Team tells us a bit of what to expect and how to endure the ride

Message of Love from the Divine Guidance Team

Messages from angels and ascended mastersYou will be receiving quite a bit of information over the next few months as your energies continue to shift like blowing sands in the desert.  Ancient wisdom is coming forth from near and far and you may find yourselves being pulled in more than one direction.

Simply take a deep breath and continue to breathe.  Ponder this new information before allowing it to serve you one way or another.  Can you accept the reality of this information?  Does it conflict with other information?  To what degree?  Or is it that this new information feeds other information or is being conveyed in a similar yet different fashion or different perspective?

Remember there is no right or wrong really.  So it is fine to read this new information and to shift through it, perhaps only taking bits and pieces here and there and discarding the rest, according to your own spiritual path.

But stay open too.  For as more information comes into play, so your path will wind around to and fro, and move you forward with each step you take.  Don’t disregard or dismiss; simply ponder it.  Think about it the way one would do at a wine tasting.

The people who wine taste look at the wine while they swirl it in their glass; they sniff the aroma and bouquet of the beverage.  They swirl and sip, rolling the taste around on their tongue.  They ponder the opacity, the aroma and finally the flavor of the wine– all different elements of the same wine before they compare it to the other wines they have tasted.    It is an art and can be a complex one at that.

Regard information in the same careful manner as the wine taster
and clarity will be yours more easily.

Once you have pondered and accepted as truth, to whatever degree you so choose, wait for your world to shift further.  Changes may be subtle or large; again take change at this time in stride, so you don’t lose focus, cause confusion and frustration or otherwise react in a less than positive manner.   The world around you may feel as its losing its grip, but you stay strong and positive, knowing all will be alright with the world for greater powers than you are in charge.  Take heart and keep the faith during your upcoming season of light and infinite love.

Light a candle to honor those who have gone before you and give where and when you can.  Remember you are not alone, so keep vigil with others and together honor life, hearth, family and friends.

Some of you may feel various effects as the world is changing.  Moodiness, dizziness and frustration are common side effects of this shifting time span.  Watch for those who are short-tempered, especially those who aren’t usually such; again they are simply being affected by the time of The Shift.  Time may speed up or slow down—often in the same day!  Flow may come in great amounts and then become deserts.  Be prepared for such dry spells, which include money, relationships, luck and other types of personal flows.  Know that you may not be attracting these as much as passing through these times.  Again, stay as positive as possible.  Make it a point to practice spiritually daily affirmations, prayers or sayings that help get your through your ordinary day.  These are not ordinary times, so double your efforts where needed.

We are telling you this not to scare or frighten you but simply allowing you to be aware of all that is swirling and dancing around you, now, as your year comes to a close. 

Go ahead and make plans; just be sure to put in some back up plans too.   Don’t hoard, but don’t overspend.  Always love and give and know you will receive back more generously than what was given.

Now that your lifetime karma is now at rest, but remain kind to others for cause and effect are still in motion.

Love, laugh and be joyous.  Let the world continue to spin on its axis, it will or without you, regardless of your actions.  Pay those that would hurt you and taunt you or mock you no heed.  They have empty voices.  Greater powers will deal with them appropriately.

Picture what you desire—set your intent and think happy thoughts about your desire.  Watch it appear before your eyes in ways and means you can’t imagine now.  Allow happiness and joy to be yours.

Allow others their peace and know that your story is not theirs and their story is not yours.  Live your life—not the life of others.   You cannot live their life and they cannot live yours.  Make peace with this.

Remember always, you are loved.  Very, very greatly.  You are a prize no matter what you or anyone else thinks.  You are a wonderful being full of life and have many gifts to give.

In this time of Thanksgiving, we honor those who paved the way before us and we give thanks to them who showed us the way to today.  Let us appreciate all that we have now as we march boldly towards tomorrow.

Peace and Blessings to All,

The Divine Guidance Team: Archangel Michael, Archangel Metatron, Lord Master Kuthumi and Master Yeshua, Orion Energy Beings of Light-Malachi, Bartholomew and Ellery, Mother Mary and Magdalena, Merlin and Kuan Jung, Saint Germaine and Serapis Bey, and all of us Light Beings who love and adore you.  Thank you for allowing us to come into your lives and help you in your quest for illumination.


I believe the Divine Guidance Team is growing….such wonderful guidance from such wonderful beings!

I hope that we continue to aid in illuminating your path and help light your way.

New Beginnings – Again!

The Road Not Taken
It’s been a long winding road this year….

This has been a heck of a year so far, hasn’t it?   The Shift has affected many—by shifting their lives in ways not possibly imagined last year.  If you haven’t experienced some major drama in your life this year, count yourself lucky!

Now obviously one can handle all this shifting in a variety of ways—with a good attitude or a negative attitude.  I’m betting though, for you, it’s been a combination of both.  And yes, I’ve been shifting big time too—and have done my level best to keep a positive attitude about all the changes in my life.  It hasn’t always been easy, but I know that divine guidance is with me at all times and I trust in a higher power to allow me to grow and experience expansion in the highest way possible.

So without going into all the details of my last five months, let me announce first that we are moving from our headquarters in Zion, Il to down the road (or up the road, since we’re heading north!) to Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.  We’re also changing our phone number!  It will now be: (262)764-4141.
Our website will remain as:, and you can find all our new contact information on the website.

For the last six months, we’ve been attempting to run the business full time, but simply haven’t been that successful.  So it will again be a part time endeavor as I return to corporate world to earn my income.  Our blog schedule will be changed accordingly as well as our Facebook entries—our newsletter will start again in mid-September; we didn’t get August’s edition out due to our move.

We have started a wonderful local MeetUp group and there’s going to be lots of activity surrounding this new endeavor.  We already have a waiting list to our “Communicating with the Spiritual Masters” MeetUp group in far northern Illinois.  We’re looking forward to being with this group and sharing divine guidance wisdom with them.

Thank you all for your understanding and your continued support of Illuminated Engagements.  Our work to illuminate your spiritual path continues even as The Shift continues.  We’re looking forward with new energy and direction as we continue along our way.   We hope you will continue to join us!

With Love and Light Always,

New Rules of 2013 – Giving and Receiving

Illuminated EngagementsSo we’re going to wrap up our present series on New Rules for 2013, by talking about giving and receiving.  By now, if you’ve been reading this series of blogs, you’ve learned that we all now have to do ‘just a little bit more’, in order to get ahead.  But even though we may have to put a bit more effort in, the universe is now rewarding us ‘just a little bit more’ too!

This essentially means that by giving to others, you will receive ‘just a little bit more’ too.  It is always best to give from the heart, not because you intent to get rewarded.  Remember the Law of Responsibility is also in full motion these days – so be responsible about your life, which includes how you approach it and how you approach people, as well as how you treat yourself.

Being responsible in thoughts, words and actions will allow the flow of giving from the heart to be easier.  And thus you will be rewarded in an equal manner.  While this has always been so, it is now more pronounced—meaning that when you give more, you get more—‘just a little bit more’ than before.  This can be very rewarding.

And when you get—especially when it comes to money—remember to continue the flow and keep it going, by continuing to give to others and gracefully and appreciatively receive.

You can give your time, your generosity, or your physical presence, in order to receive. It doesn’t have to be about money always.  What can you give to others freely?  How about a smile? A helping hand? A friendly nod of the head in greeting?

And when someone gives you something—be sure to pass it forward.  Meaning when someone does something nice to you—be sure you are nice to others.  Now more than ever, the positive effects will be felt.  Equally so, will the negative results if you choose to be greedy, unkind or otherwise be negative in your life’s approach.

The tide is turning and the new rules or guidelines are here to stay and will only get stronger as time goes on.  This allows people to play catch up, learn how this new world operates and can adjust their sails accordingly.

Fight the winds and you will be fighting an uphill battle.  Let the winds blow free and steer accordingly.
And learn to enjoy the ride!  It will be to your advantage, benefit and ultimately go towards allowing you to be a happier, more joyful and productive person.  Happy Sailing!

With Love and Light Always,
