AnnaMariah Nau Bold Bodacious Jewelry(c) AnnaMariah Nau

These dancing dolphins bring a sense of joy, abundance and hope into your life. When I received these beautiful carved chrysophrase pendants I finally realized why they had entranced me so when I found them online. The message of dolphin and the energy of this gemstone are in absolute harmony; joy, health abundance and the infinite love of the Universe. It is simply impossible to experience these pendants and not be moved at the magnificence of life and connection to source and all that is.

You don’t see chrysophrase much, as it is fairly rare and often extremely pricey. Often chrysophrase is a brighter spring green color, but there’s something about the depth of color in these pendants that I find appealing. It’s as if it pulls you down into the depths of yourself, expanding your heart and allowing deep healing as you swim through the emotional waters of your life. You will find that what was previously hidden becomes clear with insight into who you are and what is yours to do; remember your birthright of joy, health, love and abundance. As you allow the energy of the stone to work with you, your shadow self will be illuminated with love allowing your heart and soul to expand into the beauty which creation knows you to be.


I will admit to having been initially stumped as to what stone to put with these pendants. I had some ideas that seemed so perfect in my mind, but when I brought them out the color and the energies clashed making me shudder in horror. As I looked at the hundreds of strands of stones hanging by my workbench, my eye finally spotted several strands of Grossular Garnet, the color was perfect and when I put them together I could practically feel the dolphins begin to dance and chatter to each other.

Grossular Green garnet is one of the most potent manifestation stones available as it helps you to ground abundant manifestation. If you can conceive of an idea clearly in your mind, this stone will help you bring it to life in reality as you experience the confidence and motivation to make things happen.

Wearing or holding grossular garnet will facilitate healing all prior limitations affecting both health and wealth as you perceive true abundance in your life and celebrate it with joy as you change old patterns of scarcity into new ones of loving abundance. It may also help you learn more about yourself and your purpose on Earth.

You may not be able to swim with the dolphins every day…but you can do the next best thing when you wear these gems together to bring forth all the best of dolphin energy. While the stones don’t have to be carved into dolphins it does seem to doubly enhance the magic.


AnnaMariah creates beautiful, one of a kind pieces that transcend jewelry. As a gemstone empath she connects deeply to the energy of the stones. In her hands a simple necklace becomes a tool to balance and support your energy, as well as making you look fantastic! She focuses on the beauty and magic inherent in the stones, so her pieces are always unexpected. When you find the piece that is right for you you’ll be amazed at the transformation as it connects with your energy and brings out your inner radiance in ways you hadn’t considered yet.

I believe that everyone has consciously chosen:  the letters for their names, birth date, place of birth, their birth or adoptive family, and made certain they had sufficient grace to guarantee a successful life. The written guarantee included built-in soulutions for resolving every life challenge. The purpose of these choices was to allow us to combine our physical-Earthly Self with our Cosmic Self enabling us to remember our own oneness and why we chose to incarnate. (ARTICLES:  “Our Abandonment Issues Are The Catalysts . . .” also the series entitled “There’s Only Plan A….”)

Western Numerology, it is based on a system developed by the Greek mathematician Pythagoras. To study with Pythagoras, one had to pledge themselves to silence for five years.

Numerology is the science of interpreting the patterns of numbers and letters as they interact with other frequencies to create our realities. Whether one is a novice or an expert, using the basic alpha-numeric formulas of Numerology produces consistently accurate results. For example, adding the digits of the month of birth to the day of birth, then reducing any double-digit sums to a single digit, reveals an individual’s core issues and greatest strengths. The formula would be written as M+D=AN (Achievement Number).

Some brief examples of core issues associated with the AN would be:

1 – Issues Involving the Self

2 – Issues Involving Others

3 – Issues Involving Communications and Social Interactions

4 – Issues with “Getting It Done”

5 – Issues Involving Change and Movement

6 – Issues Involving Family, Community, Relationships

7 – Issues Involving Trust, Skepticism, and Control

8 – Issues Involving Power, Money, Control, or Status

9 – Issues Involving Selflessness

0 – Issues Related to Spirit (trust and faith)

Numbers are the building blocks of potential. Potential is the catalyst for creation. Creation leads to harmony. Harmony is the foundation for unity. Within unity, partnerships are established. Partnerships generate new potential. Our most important partnership is with our Cosmic  Self.

What is Cosmic Numerology

Cosmic Numerology, a branch I’ve added to the tree of Numerology, is a melding of the sciences of Numerology and quantum mechanics with the concepts of reincarnation and Gematria. Cosmic Numerology is the study of the patterns and frequencies associated with the numbers and letters that make up our realities. It can identify the behavior patterns of individuals, businesses, or countries. It also identifies the challenges and soulutions associated with those patterns. Whether it’s a name, illness, disease, address, food, chemical, mineral, color or craving, they all have one thing in common; they symbolize the interrelationships of the energies and events that affect our lives. Numbers and letters represent the codes of creation. Cosmic Numerology views these codes being generated by both conscious and unconscious choices.

Our name (including businesses, countries, pets, even fictional characters) reveals our emotional and psychological behavior patterns as well as our strengths and weaknesses. Our birthday identifies our destiny, life challenges, mental patterns, and the physical opportunities that will enable us to fulfill our life calling.  We also choose specific life challenges as well as providing for their “soulutions.” None of us would have ever chosen to come here, if we didn’t know beforehand that we have more than enough grace to successfully fulfill our part of the cosmic plan in this lifetime. You may ask “If I have sufficient grace, why has this life been so difficult?” My answer is even though we have more than enough grace to succeed, we have procrastinated for 26,000 years and have finally decided, with the coming of “The New Age,” to resolve our deepest issues in this lifetime.


In numerology, your use, misuse, or non-use of the energies of your personal numbers influences every aspect of your daily life, including your behaviors at work, in relationships, and with family. Personal numbers can also identify potential experiences, giving us the foreknowledge that allows us to make more proactive life choices and fewer reactive choices.

In this article, I would like to discuss the vibrations of your Personal Year (PY) for 2012. The PY cycle lasts nine years with each preceding year setting the tone for the following year. The PY begins on January 1 and lasts until December 31. (Some numerologists count the PY as lasting from birthday to birthday.)

Throughout each nine year cycle we are given an opportunity to become less reactive and make more conscious life choices. Whatever patterns we fail to identify and begin working on as we pass through the nine year cycle will recur with more intensity in the next nine year cycle.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *

Before showing you how to determine your current Personal Year (PY), let me say something about 2012 which was a Universal 5 year (add 2+0+1+2 = 5.)   The energy of a Universal Year (UY) has the potential to maximize both the positive and negative energies of your current Personal Year. It is a hidden influence.

2012   (2+0+1+2 = 5 Universal Year  (UY))

Melding the energy of your personal year for 2012 with the universal 5 energy of 2012 provided an underlying energy that required maintaining balance in your life, accepting transitions, developing more self-confidence, and being aware of opportunities for new beginnings.

On a global basis, the energy of the 5 UY was a catalyst for global changes that impacted economies, commerce, housing, jobs, and financial and political stability. This year was an 8 Personal Year (PY) for Barack Obama and a 2 PY for Mitt Romney. With the energy of a 5 Universal Year (UY) in the background, both men needed to maintain balance in their lives, accept transitions, develop more self-confidence, and be more aware of opportunities for new beginnings.

*    *    *    *    *    *    *

In 2012, as part of the underlying energy were you aware of understated changes in your life? Were you confident enough to initiate changes and be comfortable with transitions? Did you learn to become more physically and emotionally balanced? Did you learn to say “It’s Not My Movie” and stop looking over your shoulder and move on? Were you aware of subtle and not so subtle opportunities for movement and change?

The energy of a negative 5 can indicate the potential to have some issues with Change And Movement due to being out-of-balance ~ too rigid or too yielding, impulsive, self-indulgent to excess, inconsistent, promiscuous, grabbing concepts not details,  always in a hurry.

The energy of a positive 5 is: Flexible, freedom loving, physical, enjoys life, loves innovation and change, curious, can be a moderate, balanced, and easily goes with the flow, confident. (Refer to ARTICLES, “An Interpretation of The Numbers 1 – 9 and 0.”)

Some of the negative aspects of the 5 UY that we just completed may be associated with:

  • Sudden changes related to political and economic systems
  • Changes in Global situations every 12 to 18 days/weeks
  • Missed opportunities amongst corporations, political parties, nations, governments, and individuals to change for the positive
  • Rigid behavior patterns by the above parties
  • Confrontational behaviors by the above parties

Some of the positive aspects that could have enhanced your personal year were:

  • Having the confidence to move forward
  • Recognizing and moving toward new opportunities and beginnings
  • Understanding the transitory nature of life

*    *    *    *    *    *    *

When I analyzed the number sequence (from left to right) that composed 2012, I saw: Let go of emotional and/or sentimental attachments . . . speak up in a timely fashion . . . cooperate with others . . . seek harmony (2). The 0 indicates that Spiritual assistance is available, if asked for. The 1 represents the Self. The positive 1 knows it is part of a cosmic oneness and moves forward making conscious choices. The second 2 represents working in partnership with both celestial and earthly beings/energies for the betterment of the humankind.

Globally, this year as well as the next four years will provide many opportunities for people, businesses, and governments to let go of fear based selfishness and begin embracing mutual cooperation by developing Plan A’s that benefit everyone. (See ARTICLES “There’s Only Plan A, There’s No Plan B.”)

The energy of a Universal Year is an underlying influence on the energy of Personal Year. Following is a brief interpretation of the underlying Universal energies for the next four years:

2013 is a universal six year (2+0+1+3= 6.) Worldwide there could be issues with water, either too much or too little (2); rising spiritual awareness as a result of hardships or insensitivity (0); a need for leaders to begin social initiatives (1); a focusing of resources along with open communication (3). Under the influence of the 6 UY, real estate will come to the forefront. It is a time for beginning and/or ending relationships involving people, governments, and businesses as well as a time for strengthening your relationship with Spirit.

2014 is a universal seven (7) year. The influence of the seven will provide opportunities that will require faith, patience, and the realization that the only thing we can control is our decisions.  The underlying energy is about learning to make more proactive decisions and fewer reactive decisions. It is a year that can help us move closer to doing what we love rather than to be loved or try to maintain control. Hopefully, this year will be the catalyst for more emotional and spiritual global clarity and collaboration.


2015 is a universal eight (8) year. The presence of an eight always indicates financial issues or legal proceedings. Globally, there could be serious financial issues. It can also indicate pay-back time for those (people, businesses, or governments) that did not “cooperate” in the universal 2 year, build constructively in their 4 universal year, or be of “service” in their 6 universal year.

2016 is a universal nine (9) year and brings the nine year global cycle, which began in 2008, to its conclusion. (Ring any bells?) Everything that has occurred since 2008 has the potential to repeat itself with more or less intensity. The amount of intensity will be determined lessons learned and acted upon. This year calls for releasing old beliefs and behavior patterns so that we can begin new Plan A’s. This year will set a global tone for the new nine year cycle that begins in 2017.  The last 1 UY was 2008, the next 1 UY will occur in 2026.

Will the world continue following a path of individual, group, and nationalist agenda’s or will it have learned that all Plan A’s require cooperation for their success?

*    *    *    *    *    *    *

The Yearly Universal Solution

Every number has a challenge and solution. Regardless of what personal year an individual, business, corporation or nation is experiencing in 2013, the universal yearly solution for everyone is 3 (e.g., move forward with your life.) The 3 universal solution calls for every individual to have more self-confidence, come from your center not your fringes, take the lead (whether it is at work, in the community, or with family. This underlying energy can either assist in building your confidence or act as a catalyst that drains it away. It can help you release fear (Failure Excuses Avoidance Repetition) and replace it with faith (Fervor Acceptance Intuiting Trust Humor.) Being both a 5 UY with a 1 Universal Solution, we are being offered a second chance for new beginnings.

The anomaly of a universal solution applying to each year of the nine year cycle is Spirit’s way of honoring our free will while offering us a solution for enhancing universal harmony. (Mathematically, it has been proven that if 15% of a group changes their base patterns, it is enough of a change to influence the other 85% to begin making changes.)

One More Thought . . .

As explained in my article on abandonment issues, we hire “trainers” to push our buttons until we yell “Enough!” We realize that doing to be loved or doing to maintain control generates a great deal of stress. When one of these trainers show up this year, it is vital that you recognize them. The second you feel your heart race, stomach sink, or head pound recognize that this is being caused by your reaction to the negativity directed at you by your trainer. In that moment of recognition, take a mental step to the side and say “Ah, one of my trainers has shown up; let’s see which abandonment button they will try to push today.” If you can step to the side with this recognition, their attack is no longer personal it becomes an opportunity to opt out previous reactive behavior patterns and opt in to making more proactive decisions . . .  start doing more of what you love.

How to Determine Your Personal Year (PY) for 2013

Like water in a tube, many of us will slosh back and forth between the positive and negative aspects of our PY (doing what we love and doing to be loved or to maintain control.) Refer to: ARTICLES at – “Abandonment Issues Are….;” And “Four Phases of Personal Growth” for insights as to why we waiver between reactive and proactive behavior patterns.

The PY is found by:

  • Adding your month and day of birth together (called the Achievement Number (AN).
  • Reduce the sum of your month and day of birth to a single digit.

December (12 month) + 27th (Day) = 39     3 + 9 = 12        1 + 2 = 3

  • Add that digit (a 3) to the current year 2013 which has also been reduced to a single digit. (2+0+1+3 = 6)
  • 3 + 6 = 9       2013 is a 9 personal year.


  • March (3 month) + 4th (Day) = 7
  • Add that digit (a 7) to the current year 2013 which has also been reduced to a single digit. (2+0+1+3 = 6)
  • 7 + 6 = 13         1 + 3 = 4       2013 is a 4 personal year


To use the following chart, read down vertically from the Achievement Number, to the Personal Year, to the Universal Challenge.

For example, if your AN is 2, you are in a 8 PY with a 5 challenge and a 3 universal solution.

If your AN is 8, you are in a 5 PY with a 2 challenge and a 3 universal solution.

With an Achievement Number of: 

1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9

2013 as a Personal Year is a:

7   8   9   1   2   3   4   5   6   

Your 2013 Personal Challenge:

4   5   6   7   8   9   1   2   3

The 2013 Universal Solution for everyone is:

3  3   3   3   3   3    3   3   3

Interpretations for Personal Years

Regardless of your personal year, universally August is a review of the previous year’s energy, September is the final opportunity to maximize the energy of your current year, and October is a preview of the energy of the coming year.

A “One” Year   

New beginnings, making your Self your first priority.

Your own masculine energy (assertive behavior) is required to initiate your plans. This year sets the tone for the remainder of the 8 years of this cycle. You will begin to feel this energy by late October of your 9 PY. It is an ideal year for starting new projects. Do not expect to start a new personal relationship as all of your energy should be directed toward birthing the project(s) decided upon in your 7 PY (2009). If you are in a relationship, tell your partner that you need to make your Self your first priority and will give them as much of your energy as you can.

On the first new moon of the year (or in December) “marry” your Self, thus making yourself your first priority. Buy a small piece of jewelry, a crystal, or other object and give it to your Self as a wedding gift.  (Everyone should do this not just those in a one year.) ARTICLES “Four Phases of Personal Growth”

The challenge number is 7. The major challenges are:  not to be apprehensive or concerned with failure or embarrassment; take the initiative . . . you’ve been waiting three years! Don’t be afraid to ask for help either from others or from Spirit; be more patient (rarely does a project take full form overnight); balancing your intuition and logic. (Use your intuition to “come up” with an idea, use your logic to develop it, and then intuitively test its practicality.) Other challenges involve impatience, being overly analytical, controlling, and anxieties associated with being embarrassed, humiliated, or judged by others to be less intelligent/successful than you perceive yourself to be.

A “Two” Year


Keeping moving forward with last year’s plans,. Your own feminine energy (intuition /cooperation) is required for seeking, accepting, or offering help. This is a year when the ego should be put on a shelf. This is also a year for beginning or ending relationships (social, romantic, business or with your old Self). You will meet many people that will help you along your path, assistance is all around you (human and celestial.). Since 2 is also the number for partnerships, this is a great year to strengthen your relationship with Spirit by learning to trust that everything is divinely timed. Don’t forget to “ask” the universe for what you desire; then have the patience and faith to wait for it to arrive.

The challenge number is 8. The challenges are not to become angry or frustrated when things don’t go according to your plans. Try to avoid being too dictatorial or feeling disempowered in your dealings with others. Don’t worry about money or finances, have faith that it is coming over the horizon.. Watch out for confrontations with others, especially authority figures or superiors. Don’t be afraid to “step into your power” to facilitate needed changes. changes.


A “Three” Year   

Social Activity and Creativity are the main themes. In the 1 year, you initiated plans or ideas. In the 2 year others were available to assist you to move forward with those plans (including Spirit, if you asked for help.) The 3 year brings opportunities to “birth” your plans or ideas. This is an ideal time to renew old friendships and form new ones. It is a year of creativity, manifestation, and for expressing yourself socially and/or through art, music, writing, or speaking. Have fun! Bring joy into people’s lives. It is a time when the ideas and plans implemented in the 1 PY begin coming to fruition. This is the best year, other than a 1 PY, to birth new ideas and projects.

The challenge number is 9. The challenges are being afraid or anxious about releasing emotional attachments, whether they are to people, possessions, or a job. This can lead to stubbornness or control issues. Don’t over commit yourself because of feelings of guilt or a sense of obligation. If an opportunity arises in another location, don’t be afraid to leave loved ones. This is a year of change and new beginnings, not of looking over your shoulder to make certain that everyone else is okay. Be more discerning about whom, where, or for how long you are willing to be of assistance; ask yourself “am I doing this to be loved, maintain control, or because it gives me joy. Set your ground rules up front. Above all, do not become involved with others as an excuse to not be responsible for and to yourself.

The most important lesson to learn this year is to be able to willingly let go of both the things you love and your emotional baggage. With faith you will realize that whatever you release will always be replaced by something better.

A “Four” Year

Focus on work; put your shoulder to the wheel and nose to the grindstone. Be practical. You may feel “boxed-in” or “put-upon” or a sense of limitation. Due to the amount of responsibility placed upon you, you will not be able to take a carefree vacation until early August otherwise feelings of guilt may inhibit your pleasure. Use this year to make your dreams/visions (3 PY) into reality. The 4 represents foundations. It is time to concentrate on work and to pay attention to the details. Don’t procrastinate. You cannot depend on others for help, they will not do the job to your satisfaction and it will take more time to educate them than it would to do the job yourself.


The challenge number is 1. Challenges for the year mainly revolve around a need to do everything your way. This is a control issue associated with abandonment issues and demonstrated through arrogant behavior patterns. The other side of the challenge coin may see you overly amenable, no backbone or self-confidence leading to procrastination or a pattern of reactionary behaviors.

A “Five” Year    

A year of change and a second chance for a new beginning. You are halfway through your nine year cycle. This is a year of freedom, change, being more physical (at the gym or in the bedroom.) Opportunities for new beginnings will present themselves. You can change your job, indulge the physical senses (within moderation), enjoy a flirtation, or late in the fourth find your twin flame. Personal freedom will be at its peak, take advantage of it. Travel will be high on your agenda this year, whether taking many short trips or long journeys. There could be changes every 12 to 18 days or weeks.

The challenge number is 2. Other challenges to avoid are co-dependency or non-cooperation, not trusting your intuition, difficulty letting go of emotional or sentimental attachments, poor communication of your feelings or ideas, and ignoring your relationship with Spirit. Let go of fear and indecisiveness, be BOLD; listen to your heart.

A “Six” Year     

A year of service and responsibility. Like a 2 PY, it is also an excellent year for beginning or ending personal relationships or strengthening your relationship with Spirit. Beginning this year and lasting through the 9 PY, learn to put the needs of other’s ahead of your own. It is also a good time to deal with real estate in any form — buying, selling, renting out a property or fixing one up. Be charitable, tolerant, and forgiving. Emit love . . . do not go to bed angry.

The challenge number is 3. The challenges are: watch your sarcasm; don’t let feelings of inadequacy or being unforgiving make you do things to be loved or to maintain control; accept who you are and love your Self. Do not scatter your energy or time doing for others . . . focus on your plans. Don’t close down, be more emotionally intimate, have the courage to speak your truth from your heart. Other challenges involve having good ideas or plans but not paying sufficient attention to the details to make them successful.

Water damage could be an issue e.g., a dripping faucet, a window left open allowing rain to come in, too much or too little water for a garden. Also, watch your sweet tooth as the potential for weight gain is present.


A “Seven” Year    

A year of self-analysis as well as learning to surrender. What is decided upon now and developed throughout the 8 PY and 9 PY will determine your spiritual direction and level of conscious satisfaction during the upcoming nine year cycle. The 7 PY is the time Spirit gives you to figure out who you are and where you are going. By September 25th of the 7 PY, you must decide where you want to go, what you want to be, and how you are going to get there. (Make a physical list; you can modify your decisions during the fourth quarter, but for now it is imperative that you place your order with the Universe in writing.) These requests and intentions will begin being activated during your 1 PY. Remember, this list is your order to the Universe; order everything on the menu, don’t limit yourself to an entrée, side dish, and a beverage.

Challenges for the year mainly revolve around a need to do everything your way, thinking it’s the best way. This can be a control issue associated with abandonment issues i.e., “I cannot trust anyone, even Spirit, to be reliable, trustworthy, or supportive.” The other side of the challenge coin reveals a tendency to believe you are not worthy of help. You may feel lonely at times, this feeling can cause you to go out and do something stupid, like drinking at a party and being pulled over for a DWI on the way home. THIS IS A YEAR OF PERSONAL REFLECTION, you are to spend your spare time alone, contemplating your life and life direction. Try to spend time near water (streams, ponds, rivers, lakes, oceans, even a fountain) it will help calm you down and focus.

The major challenge for the year is to learn to trust in the universe and surrender your agenda’s; realize that you can control nothing. This realization can lead to becoming more patient and trusting.

Another main challenge associated with the seven is not feeling alone or abandoned and then going out and doing something stupid, like getting drunk  or having random sex and contracting an STD. Use your alone time constructively for self analysis. Don’t wallow in self-pity.

The challenge number is 4. Some of your challenges this year involve letting go of the need for control, not being  stubborn because of insecurities, not getting lost in minutiae or details, not being afraid to move forward with your dreams/ideas/visions. Recognize that you cannot control anything; you can only state your “intentions and preferences” and continue moving forward. Life is like a restaurant, order what you want and expect it to arrive!

An “Eight” Year 

This can be a year of financial gain or karmic paybacks. Using the lessons of faith, patience, trust, and surrender learned in your 7PY, this can be a financially successful year. This is a good year to implement business plans, receive a promotion or recognition, make money, or become more self-empowered. This is also a year for dealing with organizations or institutions, contracts, legal proceedings, and the law. (Watch the speed limits on the highways.)

Business and financial opportunities may present themselves this year, but for them to materialize you will have to learn how to allow them to unfold and not “try” to make them happen. TRUST (last year’s lesson) that everything is unfolding according to the cosmic plan that you helped create.

If you cooperated in your 2 PY, kept you nose to the grindstone in the 4 PY, and were of service in your 6 PY, then you will be rewarded either materially or financially (or both) this year; if not, this will be a very difficult year . . . one of financial hardships or karmic paybacks.

The challenge number is 5. The challenges for this year include: paying attention to the details not just the concept, not scattering your energy or dissipating your time by trying to control the affairs of others, and avoiding stubbornness, procrastination, and reactionary behavior patterns.

A ” Nine” Year

This is a year of endings, letting go of attachments, realizing that trying to control anything is fruitless and frustration.  It is also a good time to travel, especially long distances. This year is the “final exam”; anything of a negative nature that has not been resolved in the previous eight years, will recur. The lesson is about loving your Self without becoming narcissistic.

Start nothing new that you wish to continue, this is the end of the nine year cycle. If you feel driven to begin something or make a purchase wait until October to begin, as this is when the energy of the 1PY begins filtering in. This is an excellent year to end negative associations or dealings with your “spiritual trainers.” (Read ARTICLES “Our Abandonment Issues Are The Catalysts . . . .) Minimize the ego’s reactions to losses and emotional disappointments by realizing that you are preparing your Self for new beginnings in your 1 PY and the next nine year cycle.

The challenge number is 6. Challenges include: not allowing perfectionist tendencies or unrealistic expectation of yourself or others to interfere with creating and manifesting that which you desire; over committing yourself to assisting others as a distraction for avoiding the need to focus on yourself. (Feelings of abandonment could lead you down this path.) Also, avoid situations where you think you need to be in control for someone else’s good, they will not work out the way you expect them.


The challenges for this year include: paying attention to the details not just the concept, not scattering your energy or dissipating your time by trying to control the affairs of others. Avoid stubbornness, procrastination, and reactionary behavior patterns.

How much stinkin’ thinkin’ have you been up to lately?

You know what I mean . . .

  • Complaining about the lemons the Universe seems to have sent to you recently,
  • Having an interaction with someone that didn’t go the way you were expecting and obsessing or gossiping about how “wrong” the other person is,
  • Getting all caught up in how you feel victimized by “the system” – whether that be government, your job, or something else,
  • Immediately jumping to conclusions about why someone said or did something that contains a negative opinion about the action or the person, or insists that it was evil forces or some diabolical scheme to keep you down,
  • Saying “I could never,” or “It will never happen,” or “that’s not how life works,” or some other statement that shuts down all the possibilities the Universe is sending your way,
  • Thinking, saying, or doing something that results in you feeling bad,
  • Getting angry or upset about what those people are saying about the politician, political party, religion, or other group you feel aligned with,
  • You get the idea.

Its not easy walking the high road. But it is required if you want to heal your pain, live in joy, have harmonious relationships, achieve your heart-felt desires, or experience enlightenment.

Most people live in struggle.

And then they complain about it . . .  


Focusing on what you don’t want only causes more of the same.  If you know anything about the Law of Attraction, you already know that.

Instead of treating the next little disaster in your life like a horrible “bad” thing, why not look at it for what it is – a lesson.  Perhaps you are in the middle of a lesson about learning to flow with life, forgiveness, being kind to others, overcoming fear, staying calm despite your circumstances, letting go of people or situations that disempower you, cause you confusion, regret, or stress.

There are a lot of lessons in the classroom called earth. Every moment of every day is there for you to see who you are and what you believe. Every person you encounter has been very strategically placed in your path for you to experience something. Each one is a gift – not a curse.

Life happens. Hiccups in plans happen. Relationship issues happen. People have bad days, they misinterpret the meaning behind your words, they often see life from their own perspective and it is usually not the same perspective that you hold.

You can blame something or someone for all the struggles in your life – or you can simply realize that life unfolds the way that it does – perfectly. You can perceive situations as being evil and dark. Or you can choose to accept what is and respond calmly to whatever shows up in your life.

I believe that all things happen for a reason. And I also believe that I am Divinely guided in every moment. I trust that when one door closes, another one will open. And the other one is always better than I could have figured out on my own. I try to look at unexpected hiccups in plans as opportunities. And I try to learn from them. What could I do differently next time? What did I learn about myself, someone else, or how life or business works by experiencing this?

The bigger your dreams, the more you have to change and walk the high road. I’m not talking about just embracing new concepts with your logical mind and trying to force new habits of behavior. I’m talking about fundamental permanent shifts physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You also have to shift octaves vibrationally. If you were already the person you need to become in order to attain your desires, then those desires would already be realized.

There are a few caveats to what I just said – like Divine timing and how to know if a desire is in your highest and best interest, or whether it is simply your ego’s need for recognition, approval, or something else. We’ll save those for next time . . .

Have a deLightful day,


P.S. One of the fastest ways to get to the root of your issues and raise your vibration is a daily practice of deep meditation. Peering Through the Veil offers insight into numerous forms of meditation and how to make each meditation deeper and more profound.

Fall Equinox is a special time of year when we celebrate the harvest of all our work through the active season of summer. The seeds planted in the spring – whether actual or metaphorical – are cared for and nurtured all summer long. Then in the fall, we have the opportunity to reap what we have sown.

It is a time of thanksgiving, of sharing our bounty with friends and family.

On the Equinox, we have equal amounts of day and night. It is a balance point. From then until Winter Solstice, we have shorter days and longer nights.

David J. Adams and I celebrate each Equinox with the Golden Water Dolphin Meditation for Planetary Healing and the Global Marine Meditation. People all over the globe join us at 8 p.m. wherever they are.

I am in the United States in the Northern Hemisphere and David is in Australia in the Southern Hemisphere. We are celebrating the north and south regions of the earth, the equality of day and night, the yin and yang of the masculine and feminine, the Spring Equinox in the south and the Fall Equinox in the north. Each of these things are about balance within the earth and within ourselves.

We ask you to join us as we send healing love and light to the dolphins, whales, and waterways of the world.

Have a deLightful day,

Who do you know with fibromyalgia?

What is it?

Mayo Clinic defines it this way, “Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.  Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.”

Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.  While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms.   Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.”

I had fibromyalgia.  From 1997 to 2001, I was in persistent pain and the doctors could not give me a diagnosis.  My arms, wrists, hips and legs were constantly aching.  I wore braces on both my wrists for four years and slept with a pillow between my legs because the pain was unbearable if the weight of one leg rested on the other.  I kept the braces on all day and night, but I could never wrap them tight enough to make the pain go away.

The doctor ran many tests, trying to find the source of the pain in my right hip.  After months of physical therapy with no changes, he thought it could be bone cancer.  It was a great day when my doctor said, “It isn’t cancer.”  Only one problem … he did not have the answer to why I was in so much pain, every day on an ongoing basis.

I had seen numerous doctors (General Practitioner, Physical Therapist, Neurologist, ENT, Chiropractor, Ob-Gyn and Surgeon) and each offered an additional medication to help with the pain, though no one offered a solution to my problem.   I felt like they did not really believe me when I described all the   symptoms and how they would not go away.

In 2001, we were living in Pennsylvania and my new neighbor told me that she had gotten great results for her fibromyalgia symptoms by using nutritional supplements.  I was intrigued by this and researched everything I could about vitamins, minerals, natural whole foods, and purified water.  I learned that my diet was a huge part of my problem.  Here is a sample of my diet at the time:  No breakfast, diet drinks, few vegetables, few fruits and very little protein.

With the data I collected, I decided to make some changes in my diet and I kept a record of any changes I noticed.  At the beginning, I made two changes (1) I began each day with a protein shake and (2) I took high quality nutritional supplements.  Within two weeks I was able to take the wrist brace off my left arm and within a month I no longer needed the braces at all!

Then I decided to eliminate all medication.  With my doctor’s supervision, I was off all meds within four months.  It has been over eight years and I remain pain free!   Here is a sample of my diet now:  Protein shake for breakfast (puts the body in an alkaline base) high quality nutritional supplements, purified water and protein with each meal.

Many people I work with struggle with fibromyalgia and the biggest impact to improving one’s health is to clean up the diet.  When I began eating a diet more alkaline than acidic, my health dramatically improved.  Leafy green vegetables are a wonderful source of alkaline foods.  Many diseases love sugar  among other acidic foods and they thrive in that environment.  If you have fibromyalgia, I encourage you to reduce your sugar intake and see how your health improves.

Our body is perfectly designed to heal itself and we can find the things we need in nature.  By eating natural whole foods grown (not made of chemicals) we feed our body with the nutrients needed for optimal health.

To Your Good Health!

If you’ve been reading the newsletter for awhile, you know I often talk about the subtle signals the Universe is continuously sending your way. Those signals are what prompt you to take the actions necessary to fulfill your mission and achieve your dreams. If you ask the Universe for what you want, and you don’t take the actions you are “inspired” to take, then its almost a guarantee that your dreams will not manifest.

Enhancing your ability to pick up or “tune in” to the signals is, therefore, of paramount importance.

I do several things that enhance my ability to receive the information, know exactly what to do, and when.

1) Daily Meditation.

Do you meditate every single day?

Is your spiritual practice, your commitment to personal and spiritual growth, at the top of your list of priorities?

If its not, it needs to be.

It is so easy to let life pull you in a million directions and to get off track. You skip a day here and a day there. You go on vacation or on a business trip and forget entirely. Next thing you know, its been a few weeks or even months since you connected with the Source of All.

Instead of beating yourself up, simply start again. Realize that you are human – and that’s O.K. We all are.

The shame and blame game serves no-one – particularly you. Judgment of yourself and others is a huge hindrance to finding the “resonance” necessary to be in flow with the Universe.

Anger, judgment, hatred, blame, shame, guilt, victimhood – these are all excuses for not becoming the truth of who you are – you Magnificent Self.

Stick to your spiritual practice and not only will you be able to understand the messages from the Universe, but you will also be in a significantly better position to help others.

2) Care of Self

Rest, exercise, eat right, drink plenty of water, have some time to yourself, enjoy a hobby.

The more stress in your life, the more vital these actions become.

When you are out of balance, frustrated, exhausted, or confused, it is impossible to make good decisions or “read” properly the signals the Universe sends.

You can’t help another until you have helped yourself. You cannot truly love another until you have truly loved (accepted, appreciated, acknowledged) yourself. You cannot forgive another until you have forgiven yourself.

3) Heal the Emotional Pain from Your Past

The more emotionally wounded you are, the more distortions there are in what you receive. The Universe is saying one thing. But your tainted beliefs, fears, and judgments hear something else.

4) Raise Your Vibration

When you work with energy through tools or assistance such as crystals, light, hands-on healing, Dancing Dolphin Energy Products, you are lifted up into a higher octave – above the trouble, struggle, and chaos that is so prevalent in the third-dimensional experience. These things help you align with the Divine.

5) Pendulum Dowsing

As Walt Wood, former President of the American Society of Dowser’s, says: “A pendulum is a focusing device for mother’s intuition. By dowsing on a routine basis, you are sending out a mantra to the Universe that says, “I want your guidance. Thy will not mine. I need help here. I have faith that I am Divinely guided.”

To learn more about dowsing, I have a fabulous online dowsing course with mutiple bonuses including a phone app.

The more you tune in, receive clear guidance, and act in faith, even when the actions aren’t logical, the more you will experience awe-inspiring moments, synchronicity, and miracles both large and small as a natural state of affairs.

  9. I was doing good for a while in meditating every day, but I got away from it, just like you said! Now it’s been a while. I think about it and say, “Maybe tomorrow. I don’t have time right now.” I have also experimented with pendulums a bit. Interesting stuff!

  10. I encourage you to “start again.” Its so easy to get caught up in the day to day little disasters and distractions. However, when you meditate routinely, your mind is much more organized and clear making prioritizing your day so much easier. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Great Tips. I try to meditate daily. Now I just have to implement your other tips.

    S. Williams


  12. Such a beautiful article, Takara. Since the New Year, I’ve promised to be good to myself each and every day….do something special…I call it my “me time.” Now I have a few more ideas. Thank you.


  13. This post really resonated for me, especially this line “You can’t help another until you have helped yourself”…absolutely…self care is so critical. Beautiful, beautiful post.


  14. Thanks for sharing – good reminder that being out of balance distorts the messages from the universe!


  15. Great tips…number 3 was especially notable to me as that has been a struggle at times in my life! Thank you!

  16. Used to meditate (almost) daily but I’ve started to slack with the holidays and all.

    Good advice perhaps to start doing it again as a resolution for 2013. Thanks for the article, Debbie!

You have to grow into your dreams.

You can’t achieve your hopes, desires, and goals unless you are willing to take risks, be uncomfortable, learn new things, and follow your inner voice.

Otherwise, you’ll just keep getting the same things you’ve already got.

No one achieves their dreams without moving into what a great little book called the Frogship Perspective terms Zones Unknown.

If you know what you want, then go after it with unwavering tenacity. When one door refuses to open or suddenly closes, try something else and keep your eyes open for the door that is wide open beckoning your entry.

Opportunities are right in front of you all the time. You just have to grow personally and spiritually enough to “register” that they are there. Then you have to muster up the courage to take the plunge or scale the mountain like the woman in the image.

Here’s to your courage!

Have a deLightful day,


P.S. The Frogship Perspective is a gem of a book by Dean Black. Its full of sage advice with stories that bring the teaching home. I highly recommmend it.

The past should not define you. The future should not scare you. What you become is based on who you are inside. That’s what counts. That’s what makes you unique. That’s what makes you magnificent! My son Jess on top of the world! Image by Debbie Takara Shelor

Sometimes I feel so blessed tears well up in my eyes. The last few months  have been so full of wonder that I’ve been moved to tears on more than one occasion.

The story I’m about to share includes a fairly profound transformational experience. May the energy of this event touch and empower you as well.

Since returning from Fiji about a year and a half ago, my life seems to be flying past at lightning speed. Days and weeks melt into one another.

As I was finishing up the writing of Peering Through the Veil, I was also writing the first half of 2 of the books in the New Dance series. The first is about Awakening. The second is what I term The Platinum Principle. I know that the energy and information around this principle is one of my primary purposes for being here.

Who I am and what I do requires that I continuously grow in consciousness and awareness and move ever higher in vibration, becoming more and more the voice, energy, and embodiment of the Divine Feminine. In order to do that, I often am taken through wild experiences and energetic shifts.

People I don’t even know sometimes send me crystals and gems. When I was living on the yacht in Fiji, a woman I’d never heard of from Israel contacted me by email. She began sending me the most amazing dragon jade beads and other rare stones as soon as I got back to the states. I’ve created energetic elixirs with each of them. Later in the newsletter, you’ll read about what wonderful product several of them ended up in.

For years I’ve been jolted awake in the middle of the night with inspiration to create something or write something down. I’ll be in the middle of working on the computer or having a conversation, and I’ll get an intuitive “hit” to google something or go somewhere. I pay attention to every one of these little “whims” that others might not even notice. Each time I follow the inspiration, and each time I invariably come across an important bit of information or I meet someone with another piece to the puzzle.

Its as if every experience I’ve ever had, every bit of information I’ve learned is a thread. As I follow these intuitive promptings, the threads are being pulled together creating a beautiful tapestry. Each thing fits beautifully with everything else. Things from the past and the present that seem completely unrelated, turn out to be equally important in whatever I’m being guided to create or understand.

Its a truly magical process and I’ve learned to simply trust. There is no way that I could ever figure out what’s about to happen, so I’ve stopped bothering to try. I just follow the little whims and watch in awe as things unfold.

Several weeks ago I received an email from my dear Sister of the Heart, Andi Goldman. It was such an honor to have her write the forward for Peering Through the Veil.

My relationship with Andi is very much like my relationship with Millie Stefani and a few others in my inner circle. It can best be described as love at first sight. Not a romantic or amorous type of love. But the kind between sisters. Yet not the kind from blood relatives, but a sisterhood that stretches back over eons. When you encounter one another there is such a love and a recognition of “knowing” the other that your heart literally sings. When Andi and I get together, we sometimes get so giddy in one another’s presence that we just seem to smile all over and giggle like school girls. It is deLightful to be in her presence.

Anyway, with our schedules we rarely get to see one another or even have the opportunity to talk on the phone. So it was wonderful to hear from her by email.

In the message she invited me to Yogaville for a weekend workshop that she and Jonathan were giving on Chakra Frequencies and The Divine Name. I had such a wonderful time 2 years ago when they were there before.

At first I didn’t think it was something that I could fit into my schedule. But as it got closer to the date, I suddenly felt absolutely sure that it was something I really needed to do. I realized it was on Wesak weekend. I couldn’t imagine being in a better place for the energies of Wesak than with my dear friends Jonathan and Andi at Yogaville.

Yogaville is an ashram in the rolling hills of Virginia that was established by Sri Swami Satchadananda. I’m not sure how many acres it covers, but there is a lovely main courtyard with buildings all around that include housing from private rooms to those that are shared, a bookstore, a library, administrative offices, numerous meeting and yoga rooms, and a large facility for shared meals and evening presentations. A bit away from this complex is the famous Lotus Light Shine which is an architectural marvel that looks literally like a Lotus.

I arrived on Friday and checked into my room. I ended up in a room with 2 bunk beds and a shared bath across the hall. Two other ladies shared the room with me. They were both attending a different workshop so I rarely saw them throughout the weekend.

The workshop was beautiful, engaging, and uplifting. I love moving energy with my voice and Jonathan and Andi are so wonderful at teaching people how to do that. The energies build all weekend until everyone is totally buzzing with energy by the time its over on Sunday.

When I attended the workshop 2 years ago, I quickly developed a friendship with a woman from North Carolina who was also taking Andi and Jonathan’s workshop. We spent the entire weekend talking during breaks and walking together to meals and to all the workshop sessions.

This time, even though I was in a shared room, and I talked to several people during the meals, I didn’t feel I was really connecting deeply with anyone. It felt kind of odd not really having anyone to share with while I was there.

Whenever I am with Jonathan and Andi when they are teaching a workshop, I try to stay very conscientious of their time and attention. I know what its like to keep a workshop going session after session. It takes a lot of energy and focus, so I try not to monopolizing their time. We talk briefly before and after sessions, but typically that’s it. So I was pretty much on my own.

By Sunday morning I was beginning to wonder why I had needed to come. The class was wonderful and seeing Jonathan and Andi is always such a blessing. But neither accounted for the intensity of my knowing about my need to be there.

I saw Jonathan as I was getting breakfast. I was about to sit down to eat when Jonathan came over and whispered in my ear. He asked me what I was doing at 3 p.m. He and Andi were doing a special ceremony at the Ashram and were only allowed to invite 2 guests to attend. They wanted me to be there.

I whispered back that of course I would be wherever they needed me to be at 3 p.m. I’d already checked out of my room and had no plans once the workshop ended around noon. As he walked away, tears welled up in my eyes as I finally understood why I’d been compelled to be there that weekend.

At the close of the workshop, Andi introduced me and personally handed samples of the Divine Name Essence out to each of those in attendance. I shared a little about the Dancing Dolphin products and the collaboration Jonathan and I have with the Essence of Sound product line.

Several of the people who took the workshop asked me questions about the products during lunch. And I finally felt like I made a new friend that lives pretty close to where I live.

One woman suddenly asked me if I ever made gem essences. I told her that I’d made over 70 crystal and gem essences and I was always making something new.

She said she had this amazing chimera – a naturally occurring crystal made of  ruby, spectrolite, and hemitite – and would love for me to make an essence out of it. I started asking her questions trying to determine how to get the crystal in order to make the essence. It turns out that she had it there at the Ashram. So we went to her room and she handed me the 3 lb. sphere. Here this woman was giving me this outrageous stone to take home with me and I didn’t even know her name. Obviously we exchanged contact information and I wrapped it safely inside a very fluffy beach towel I happened to have in my trunk.

I later did a google search and discovered that chimera was only recently found in a remote location in Tibet and is only available in limited quantities. Her sphere is truly a fabulous stone. The day I got it was Wesak. After the ceremony with Jonathan and Andi I took it home and placed it in sacred water to begin the essence creation process.

Andi, Jonathan, another friend of theirs and I were met by three of the residents of Yogaville for the ceremony. We entered a special candle-lit room at the Ashram and for the next 2 1/2 hours we sat facing one another toning, singing, humming, sometimes in silence and occasionally giggling. The geometry and acoustics of the room combined with the energies of those present and was enhanced by the energy of Wesak. What was produced was a truly extraordinary, life altering experience. It feels like I’ve jumped a couple of octaves from that experience alone.

Whatever happened that day, on all the levels that it happened on, I may never truly understand. I do know that the “tuning” and upgrade I received was necessary in order for me to create the Essence of Oneness you can read about in another post from this month’s newsletter.

Wesak and the solar eclipse in May, the lunar eclipse today, the venus transit this week, and summer solstice coming up are all blasting with new energies. Ride the waves and use the energy to go further than you ever have before!

Have a deLightful day,
